Am late today, sorry. Oceans 13 cast caused a frenzy on the Croisette and it was only the photo call and press conference. Red carpet begins in a couple of hours hour from now so have to dash back.
A few quick posts below, forgive typos…and posting on the fly.
On party beat tonight, will keep you posted.
Yours in gossip,
PS. Happy birthday to Nancy F in Toronto! 31 is MUCH better than 20!
Again the Palais was humming for the photo call. Huge crowds gathered beyond barricades and screaming when the cast walked back and forth across the walkway. Also a surge to get into the press conference – female journalists losing their sh-t over George Clooney. He obliged with autographs and a few laughs. Full Story
Cannes so far has been all about the Freebie Five. Current members – Jakey and Daniel – and new ones under consideration: George of course. And now Adrian Grenier. Spoke to him today, more on that later.
Also saw Daniel Craig at the New Line Golden Compass party last night. Observations about him and his girl to follow.
And of course, the most elite of the elite, the Oceans crew and Angelina holding court at the du Cap. Details coming….
Wednesday, haved finished shooting just in time to say good morning to North America. As such, will be live blogging all day. Check back often for fresh posts.
Yours in gossip,
Surprising but true. It was Eva Green who arrived last last night at the Golden Compass party. AFTER Daniel Craig. Flashbulbs go off like crazy…because girl knows how to work it. I wish I could upload a video of myself imitating to show you properly. Will try my best with words. Eva Green LOVES the camera. Full Story
New Line anniversary party for The Golden Compass up in some house, only not a house, more of a mansion but when you think mansion the French architecture doesn’t quite come across and this was very much a modern chateau. Only marquee attendees were Daniel Craig and Eva Green. Everyone else worth an A+ was on the boat with Clooney. Full Story
Physically I’m not attracted to him. He’s a bit too…… hirsute for my tastes. But in person? When he speaks? Adrian Grenier is The Hotness. First of all, he’s tall. Tall for a celebrity. I’d say just over 5 ft 10, maybe an inch more. And he’s serious. He’s not at all Vincent Chase. Full Story
I suppose it was too much to ask. He did after all date Nicky Hilton. And it always goes back to Sh-t By Association. But still… you watch the show, the show is so tight and crisp and believable and really, it’s only Kevin Connolly so you don’t give it much thought. And then he arrives at a press conference and while all of his colleagues are bending over backwards, accommodating the media, understanding that the hype and the support is what has driven Entourage from the beginning, now that international viewers from the UK all the way to Turkey are falling in love with it for the first time – you’d think Kevin Connolly would be a little more grateful? Ah …that would be no. Full Story
Am far away from home. Miss The View. Love The View. People are freaking out this morning about The View…Rosie and Elisabeth going at it hard, getting personal on live (is it live?) tv. Apparently it’s making a big splash back home and from the clip, indeed it’s intense and very, very uncomfortable. Full Story
The boys are here in Cannes. All of them. Filming an episode during the festival, Vince is apparently trying to finance Medellin and although the producers are desperately trying to keep things under wraps, word is they will be making a huge splash somewhere during their 3 day shoot. The press conference was this morning. Full Story
So I totally understand why some of you have Gerard Butler on your Freebie Five. I saw 300, I saw the rippling muscles, I’m not a rippling muscles kind of girl but absolutely… I don’t question his quiver over your loins. He is a fine looking man. But beefcakes have never been my thing. Full Story
It was another super star evening at the du Cap on Tuesday night. The Oceans 13 Darfur private yacht party went down earlier in the evening, Clooney and the cast hopped on board – both he and Brad looked f&cking delicious in suits. Then all came back to the hotel for more fraternising. George is funny that way, you know? Most people just throw a party when they want to get together with their friends. Full Story
