How Brits Cut

No one can cut you like a Brit… or my mother. It was her birthday yesterday, she called me at 2 in the afternoon: “It’s my birthday today. Were you at the gym?” So few words, so much sting. Guilting me, of course, for not calling her at the crack of dawn. And, given that I never go to the gym, suggesting that I would be there because, obviously, I need to work off some weight. Full Story

It’s About Time

Canadians are all about coddling their own even when it’s sh*t. Every week, I receive at least a few dozen emails: Be nicer to her/him Lainey! After all, he/she’s Canadian! Is that really all it takes? And shouldn’t that be grounds for HIGHER expectations? Apparently, most of the time… No. Full Story

Clooney Commits?

Oh please. The radio is blasting it, the web is buzzing – George Clooney to marry Sarah Larsen? Does he need to marry Sarah Larsen? Said it a thousand times before, Sarah Larsen is the kind of girl who is happy with an apartment and a closet full of designer clothes. She IS Pretty Woman. Only she didn’t save him right back. Full Story

Ben Affleck in DC shooting State of Play, a movie that Brad Pitt reportedly dropped out of. Major cast involved with this one including Russell Crowe and Rachel McAdams. Note that Ben is back to the superman shine – similar to how kept JLo him. JLo JLo JLo JLo til you’re blue in the face! Because she doesn’t want to be called that anymore… have you heard? And while Ben has not been riding the tidal wave of success of his BFF Matt Damon, 2007 was definitely a year of resurgence for the battled and bruised Ben as he deftly asserted his directorial talents in Gone Baby Gone. Full Story

Matt Damon and his wife Luciana are expecting their 2nd together… it has been a banner year. Matt is one of the few stars who can back up his paycheque with box office success AND critical acclaim. He is the reigning Sexiest Man Alive. He is besties with George, Brad, and Ben. And he exacted his revenge on Jimmy Kimmel resulting in one of the most viewed YouTube videos of the year. Full Story

The Anti-Cyrus

Emma Watson last night at the Empire Awards, then clubbing with her new boyfriend afterwards, reportedly making out openly and even hooking up afterwards at a hotel. Which means she’s not dating Daniel Radcliffe, thank Xenu. It’s just too quaint, you know what I mean? And for the 2 of you who insist on defending Miley Cyrus – how come Emma at 15 wasn’t grating like Miley Cyrus is right now? Don’t tell me it’s not the same either. Full Story

My Gwyneth and her “C”

Lainey Posted by Lainey at March 10, 2008 07:17:46 March 10, 2008 07:17:46

Were you hoping for something pervy? It’s sexy… but not pervy. And probably full of sh*t…but still, Gwyneth Paltrow went to Selfridges and paid just over a hundred dollars for a “C” tattoo on her top of her thigh? Just before the private zone? According to the Steve Flannery, that’s what she wanted. Full Story

Ewan in Pants

Why can’t all men look this fine in pants and white shoes? White shoes! Don’t lie to me and tell me this isn’t the hotness, either. Ewan McGregor is the hotness. Here he is at the Empire Film Awards in London last night, stylish but not desperate to be, with his very thick wedding band prominently on display. Full Story

That’s More Like It

Like many of you, the loins stopped quivering for Clooney after that embarrassing little tussle with Fabio. Seriously... losing your cool over Fabio??? Giving Fabio an extra five minutes he doesn’t deserve? It was George’s darkest day. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Posted late in the day yesterday, please scroll down to get caught up.

Oscar contest winner has finally made contact. Sorry to disappoint those of you waiting to pounce. Heads up to check hotmail and junk mail settings on accounts if there’s a contest you want to win badly… the Junos are coming up quick. And a Juno Swag Bag is up for grabs. Contest details to come soon but you could win the same swag bag given to presenters and performers valued at, literally, thousands of dollars, including clothing and beauty products and even trips. Wouldn’t want you to miss out just because your email goes wonky.

Finally it’s Friday. Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,


PS. Wrong Girl is not Cher or Kelly Clarkson or Jennifer Hudson.
