Dear Gossips,

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,
Lainey

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

The Daily Bitch…Please

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

Entourage: Best Boys Minus One

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

Encore at du Cap

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

Portman & Samberg?

If true… me likey, but you can never be sure with Natalie Portman because she would prefer you believe the fraud so as to not risk exposing what’s real. According to Us Weekly, Natalie is now dating Saturday Night Live’s Andy Samberg with whom she worked on her infamous SNL Digital Short, in which Natalie hilariously gives “anger rap” a new spin. Full Story

Tom and Little Sci playing peekaboo on the set of Mad Money. Oh but she’s the cutest…isn’t she the cutest? Just as cute as Violet Affleck, in fact, who has done her fair share of charming the public – which appears to be Little Sci’s new mission…and why not? Who can resist that face? Certainly not only the MiniVan Majority but even more sophisticated gossips as well. Full Story
