As you probably gathered from all the frenzy surrounding last Friday 8/8/8, we Chinese are big on dates. Like lucky dates. We consult special calendars, we consult a combination of numbers and signs, we consult fortune tellers… I’m telling you, it’s full on. When we were planning our wedding, we had to move it up a year - A FULL YEAR – because my mother calculated our birthdays and birth years and found a date that was absolutely perfect. Full Story

John Krasinski and Rashida Jones walked the carpet separately last night at Tropic Thunder, as they do. Without a doubt though, they are still a couple. And they are super cute. Saw them during Oscar week leaving the Night Before party in the same car and while I know this is heartbreaking for those of you pining for a real life Office romance, if you can get past Jim and Pam, John and Rashida really are all kinds of adorable. Full Story

Tom Cruise had been attached to a project called Edwin A Salt for many months. His involvement recently ended, supposedly because Hollywood players no longer believe he can pull off “slick action dude” with aplomb. Salt tells the story of a loyal spy accused of being a two faced spy who must pull a Jason Bourne until he’s been exonerated. Full Story

Would you call this curvy?

Geri Halliwell, 36, graces the cover of the new Hello in a bikini, conceding that she’s struggled with her weight in the past and, in an attempt to align with the sisterhood, admitted to being self conscious about being seen in a bikini. At first, it does indeed sound like she’s one of us…'I did strive to have my most perfect body and, in moments when I lack confidence, that voice is always there waiting to tell me, "You are not good enough, do better," but I'm more conscious of it. Full Story

Like the new Louboutin! Loves. It’s Jena Malone! Little Jena Malone…only not so little anymore. She rocked a new look last night at Tropic Thunder and wore it amazingly well. Have always enjoyed Jena Malone. Especially in Saved! Seen it? Mandy Moore is the best in Saved. And I remember thinking inappropriate thoughts about Macaulay Culkin in Saved. Full Story

Look at him. Wearing every colour under the rainbow, no pun intended, and too new jeans….and a jacket that shines? It shines! It shines with a sheen! Have you ever seen anyone as UNcool as Tom Cruise? Why work so hard working out only to wear a purple sweater in Los Angeles in the middle of f&cking August??? Here they are at last night’s Tropic Thunder premiere scaring the sh*t out of everyone, as usual, with their over-exuberance. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Freebie Five has been updated. Welcome Michael Phelps. For obvious reasons. Like his body. But also it’s the focus. And the commitment. When everyone else around him might be getting drunk off their sh*t , he’s in the pool morning and night, training for today, and training for London too. And only 23 years old…which, of course, makes him technically ineligible according to Gay Math restrictions. But since almost all athletes in the Olympics are, like, children, shall we make an Olympic exception?

I survived a weekend with the kids. They left me with the flu, germy little beasts.

Monday, new posts all day, check back often.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Jakey G is currently shooting Prince of Persia in Morocca and Reese Witherspoon has joined him on set, enduring a long trip to be with her man. Splash has new photos of the two hand in hand - Jakey with his shirt off showing off ripped abs and killer arms, long hair… so hot it’s sick. Like sick. Full Story
