Improved but Unwelcome

See what I meant earlier about letting in the riffraff? On the one hand there’s Juliette Binoche, on the other there’s this tranny, looking marginally improved last night in Cannes at the Louis Vuitton party but still far from there. The pattern – isn’t this what you’d slip over a bikini on the beach? Full Story

KFed spawns another

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 17, 2007 00:00:00 May 17, 2007 00:00:00

The original married and destroyed Britney, KFed Junior married and is living off Tori Spelling. And now comes another: Calum Best, now KFed the Third, currently exploiting Lindsay Lohan and it’s working, don’t you think? How many of you had heard of Calum Best 2 weeks ago? Looks like Lilo is the latest victim of Goldiggery. Full Story

Sexy Humour and His Wife

My husband always brags about seeing Radiohead in the mid-90s at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver – small venue, legendary acoustics, a music lover’s dream. Now I have something to match him. Today, Jerry Seinfeld at the media presentation for Bee Movie – his animated collaboration with Dreamworks about the plight of bees and the mistreatment of bees in our society that he conceived and wrote along with many former members of the Seinfeld show. Full Story

For the first time

Attracted to Jude Law for the first time. And it’s not as though I’ve never seen him before. I saw him last year at TIFF. Was at a party, he was holding court with Ethan Hawke – both total greaseballs, Jude in a leather vest greaseball kind of way…you know what I mean? And that’s what he was wearing, actually. Full Story

About Jake & Diane

Always thought Diane Kruger was a bit overrated. I mean seriously… Helen of Troy? Maybe a little underwhelming? Last night was no exception – obviously the assy fake bun hairdo had a lot to do with it. And the dress too. Made her look like a 50 year old socialite. Which is wonderful for a 50 year old socialite, not so much for a 30 year old glam actress. Full Story

Don’t let it fool you

Minnie Driver at the Opening Ceremony last night – this photo taken from the Daily Mail, same publication that printed the so-called anorexic picture of Cate Blanchett last week. And as in the case with Case, had I not seen Minnie myself, I would be alarmed yes by the size of her waist. But believe it or not, up to you, in person she’s actually nowhere near starvation. Full Story

Cannes Every Year

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 17, 2007 00:00:00 May 17, 2007 00:00:00

She comes every year … why? Kept asking myself that all day and then I remembered she had some involvement in a charity event and now I feel badly. But, um, for someone who hasn’t made a movie in a very long time and, well, really hasn’t done much, you can’t help the question…non? Anyway, never was impressed, having now seen her in person, still not impressed. Full Story

23 Days in Special Needs

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 17, 2007 00:00:00 May 17, 2007 00:00:00

23 days bitch! Yes, I know…it’s much less than 45. But still, considering most people thought originally that she wouldn’t serve more than a few hours as a result of prison overcrowding, 23 days, as in over 3 weeks, is better than nothing. And 23 days behind bars, with no hair extensions, no makeup, no pappies, and worse yet, no one to fellate – 23 days will be an eternity. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Don’t you wish all celebrities would scrap the way Lily Allen and Cheryl Tweedy have been scrapping? Totally bad form of course but refreshing too – celebrities who actually say what they think. And get catty without apology. Love it.

Cannes begins today – will be heading down to the Palais to cover the opening ceremony and My Blueberry Nights. My people are VERY well represented this year – first Chinese director in history to kick off the festival and the inimitable Maggie Cheung as a member of the jury…am proud.

Am also undecided about what to wear. It’s between 2 black dresses – should I save the shorter one for Daniel Craig instead of wasting it on Jude Law? Yes I think so…

Tuesday, posting on the fly between shoots, check back often for new posts, and scroll down for late posts from yesterday. Am trying to keep up with North America time.

Yours in gossip,
Lainey

Opening Cannes!

Just got back from the opening ceremony – killer activity on the Croisette tonight. Not only on the carpet but further along the beach… Jerry Seinfeld...and Jakey Gyllenhaal too! I will say this: he deserves his spot on the Freebie Five. Especially now in the flesh. And the most surprising quiveration coming from the most unlikely source…more on that later. Full Story

Pip & Ass go public

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 16, 2007 00:00:00 May 16, 2007 00:00:00

Definitely not Rachel Stevens, see? JT and Jessica kissing – can’t miss that shelf ass. So anyway…Do they look right to you? To me they don’t look right. Like Scarlett and Ryan Reynolds look right. And Tom and Gisele. But Pip and Biel? Something’s off. Can’t put my finger on it. Full Story
