Little Sci on the set!

Little Sci and Katie on the set of Mad Money in Louisiana – super cute, non? Trademark Mapother jet straight hair… and by Mapother I mean Thomas Cruise Mapother (his full name) and also his cousin William Mapother to whom many of you say Little Sci bears a striking resemblance. Snort. So anyway, as previously reported, the First Family of Scientology has temporarily moved to Shreveport while Mom works - Little Sci spending quality time with the GMD as creepy minders make sure Katie doesn’t stray too far from her teachings. Full Story

Please just rock The Buzz

No matter how bad she looks bald or buzzed, it can’t be worse than this. And I have a sinking suspicion she probably looks rather cute with her hair growing out – sexy in a hard ass kind of way. But just as we saw with her low classy wig collection, Britney is going budget on extensions with gaping holes and ratty corns at the back of her head. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The amazing thing about Cannes is how random it is. There are the mega-celebrities, there are the international superstars – having finally seen Aishwarya Rai in person…now I totally get it. Woman is beyond beautiful.

But then there’s Billy Zane. Billy who? Exactly. Only thing I can recall about Billy Zane without Google is that he was the bad guy in Titanic…and if you have to be Googled to be remembered, do you really count? Especially if you’re a total cheeseball?

And then there’s that Victoria Silvstedt woman – some kind of pin up doll I would have never known but for a pappy video taken of her several months ago getting, um, culinarily sampled in the nether regions by an old rich fart. Next thing you know, she shows up last night at the Opening Ceremony during the VIP portion of the arrivals… WTF?

But enough of the D List. There were models and billionaires everywhere, there were actors everywhere, and then there was Juliette Binoche.

There are no words for Juliette Binoche. An Oscar for The English Patient, yes, but for me it will always be The Unbearable Lightness of Being and of course: It’s your favourite. Did you love Chocolat?

Wednesday – posting between screenings and shoots. Seinfeld today! Check back often, scroll down for a late post you may have missed...

Yours in gossip,
Lainey

PS. Over two weeks in Cannes requires a lot of clothing. My thanks and love to Heather at Kiss & Makeup for styling me at the last minute! Kiss & Makeup will be adding apparel to the growing list of goodies at the apothecary. Kiss & Makeup Apparel launches soon and they will have the line that everyone wants: Alice + Olivia. I’m telling you, if you haven’t already, try the pants. The pants fit like no other…even for someone carrying around 12 pounds of not smoking, the pants rock ass. Also my new obsession – my Cynthia Vincent shoes, see attached below, available now at Kiss & Makeup. Will wear these for Jakey G and Daniel Craig in a few days. Hopefully both at the same time.

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 one, 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

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

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

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

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
