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

There’s a classic scene, I think it’s in Be Cool – Vince Vaughn’s killer improv. All he says is “why you trippin’” in a hip hop accent over and over again. I think I’m trippin’. Because Tyra hasn’t looked like this in YEARS. Maybe even a decade. Full Story

Animal Print Pregnant

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 7, 2007 06:25:14 September 7, 2007 06:25:14

If I could look this good pregnant, I’d probably consider thawing out my womb. But I wouldn’t. And I won’t. Nicole Richie on the other hand… breathtaking, non? Here’s Nicole at Fashion Rocks. I love the Richie-style adapted for her “delicate” condition. I love that she looks fresh and expectant and almost… peaceful. Full Story

Punk Ass Egomaniac

Lainey Posted by Lainey at September 7, 2007 06:18:59 September 7, 2007 06:18:59

It’s not necessarily the arrogance…the arrogance is standard Hollywood fare. It would be impossible I suppose to get up in front of thousands of people and perform, even if the songs are bubblegum sh-t. Confidence is a requirement, I get that. What I don’t get is the insulting lack of humility and the ingratitude of it all. Full Story

Speaking of parties – heads up Toronto: biggest one kicking off the festival is on Friday night....the eTalk Star Schmooze at 299 Queen West where the MuchMusic Video Awards go down. Long red carpet, major star arrivals, live on the telly, Hilary Duff will be on hand to open the occasion.

TIFF giveaway galore today including denim and lipstick! Stay tuned…

A little Johnny Depp and Hot Harry to toast your Thursday? Am blogging on the fly between shoots, check back often.

Yours in gossip,


PS. Lauren Conrad debunked Page Six rumours yesterday that she’ll be walking for Marc Jacobs during NY Fashion Week. She was involved in model casting which was filmed for The Hills but will not be modelling herself. Too bad. Would have loved to see Spencer seeth.
