Just as Good – a Weekend with Matt

It was all about Matt Damon for us this weekend at CTV – we partnered to present a special screening of his documentary Running the Sahara on Saturday afternoon, we hosted the Running the Sahara afterparty at 299 Queen West that night, and we were one of the sponsors on Sunday night at the OnexOne gala at the Four Seasons Centre. Full Story

Pitt Porn – on the roof in Toronto

Turns out I spoke too soon. It turns out Pitt Porn DID make an appearance at TIFF – just not on the red carpet. The place to be for celebrities on Saturday night was Roof II– at Cannes it was the terrace bar at the Du Cap, this year it’s a terrace at the Park Hyatt . As I mentioned earlier, Brad and Angelina were supposed to go elsewhere but for the psychotic obsession of the Brangelunatics, they were obliged to change their plans. Full Story

Speaking to Sienna

Friday night at the Holt Renfrew launch of Twenty8Twelve. Was on the carpet covering arrivals for eTalk before heading inside the party. About the clothes – I’m sorry to say, WAY better quality than Kate Moss’s. So many cute pieces they apparently sold out in a day and have had to restock twice this weekend. Full Story

Brangelunatics in Toronto

Brad and Angelina arrived undercover in Toronto to promote Jesse James. They were staying where they stayed last year at the Park Hyatt (and just because she wasn’t “seen” back then doesn’t mean she didin’t show up at the super exclusive party of one of Canada’s wealthiest couples for a philanthropic dinner) with an underground parkade to bring them in and out without being mobbed. Full Story

Pam’s Proud Moment

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 10, 2007 05:24:16 September 10, 2007 05:24:16

Pam’s romantic resumé is all class. Her two ex-husbands, seated a few tables apart, apparently could not stop taunting each other. Needless to say, because all white trash confrontations end in a scrap, they ended up coming to blows, with Kid decking Tommy hard before security stepped in to drag them out. Full Story

Chicken Fried Bomb

They opened the show on a shot of her budget ass nappy weave – it was a sign of things to come. At least try, you know? At least flail your arms and give yourself a hernia from the effort. At least SHOW UP!!! Instead, Britney went through the motions in a daze…disinterested, disengaged, maybe stoned off her tree, she could barely remember the words, barely had enough energy to lift her arms, barely bothered to do much of anything to say nothing of the tired, uninspired choreography. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Between TIFF and Fashion Week and official confirmation of Britney’s return to the VMAs…it’s been a killer week.

Film festival fever officially underway in Toronto, many major arrivals yesterday, and Reese and Jake are on junket duty this morning just outside the eTalk Lounge. Will keep you posted for any corridor chemistry and test the gaydar up close and personal.

As far as film buzz is concerned – screened Lust, Caution yesterday… AMAZING. LaineyMovies review will be posted tomorrow. Early acting accolades? All about Viggo! His portrayal in Eastern promises is ridiculously first class. Oscar momentum beginning to build and Tony Leung Chiu Wai deserves one too!

Thursday – am on junket schedule today and shooting for eTalk. Will post all morning and on the fly in the afternoon. And then of course tonight… Sienna Miller at the launch of Twenty8Twelve! Check back tomorrow for all details. Will let you know if she rips up the town! Please forgive typos!

Yours in gossip,


PS. Heads up Canada – the eTalk Star Schmooze will be televised live tonight on Star and in Toronto on CityTV at 10pm ET featuring a live opening by Hilary Duff. If you’re in the MuchMusic neighbourhood, come say hi … I’ll be there!

Her Perfect Match?

As far as the crazy spectrum goes, Natalie Portman fans aren’t quite as demented as the Brangelunatics but perhaps a little less depressed as the McGoslings. They are however particularly mental about Gael Garcia Bernal. Apparently, in their eyes, she deserves better. Is Nathan Bogle better? Well he’s certainly a hunk. Full Story

The Rich Wretch Too!

Who was in Toronto the other night, attempting to dance while her ex BFF’s ex fiancé worked the tables, and ended up spending half the night in the staff toilet drunk off her tree wretching her face off, irritating employees and sending them scurrying for disinfectant and antibiotics for fear of viral contamination? It IS who you think it is. Full Story

Better Redder

I say this too often but still… Hilary Swank has two Oscars but Julianne Moore has none. What. The. Fack??? Check out Julianne newly blonde, hopefully for a movie. Hate it. Washes her out, especially when she is such an amazingly beautiful redhead. J has a beautiful smile, non? Love these shots of her giggling with the incomparable Sam Jackson at the 75th anniversary of Save the Children last night. Full Story

Melting Face at Fashion Rocks

Seriously…why was Teri Hatcher at Fashion Rocks? Is Teri Hatcher hip? Remotely hip? Please. That face is frightening. And those questionable concrete tits, while not as offensive as Victoria Beckham’s, aren’t exactly appetising either. Sigh… Not everyone is Demi Moore. In all fairness though, have heard from sources on the set of Desperate Housewives that Teri is chilling out. Full Story
