Jake Gyllenhaal is going for the gold this year, first with Southpaw and then Everest, which is due in September—wouldn’t surprise me to see this one premiere at TIFF. Everest is based on Jon Krakauer’s book Into Thin Air, about the 1996 climbing disaster in which eight people died while descending Everest. Full Story

After spending months away working on The Revenant, Tom Hardy is back home in London. Check him out with his wife Charlotte Riley earlier this week warming his hands in his pants? At least I think that’s what he’s doing. He looks so much better now that his beard is under control. He and Charlotte were also at the Audi Polo Challenge last weekend. Full Story

Have you seen this video yet of Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen at the CFDAs the other night? They were on the carpet with Victoria Beckham. During their prune face posing, something sets Ashley off.

A lot of people have been Gossip Genie-ing for this to happen. A large percentage of them are probably Canadian. Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch went out for dinner the other night in LA.

Johnny Depp has cranked up the charm dial in Australia. For a few consecutive days now he’s given Australian fans waiting for him on the set of Pirates 5 the full Movie Star Treatment, as the unit publicist doesn’t seem to mind that paps are on site to document every gesture.

8 is the luckiest number in Chinese culture. I mean, certain people have luckier numbers than others (like for some reason Jacek has to be all contrary and 4s seem to work out well for him even though 4s are generally not lucky) but we Chinese, we love the 8. And 88? That’s double the luck, double the happiness, double the money! It’s the 88th anniversary of the Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. Full Story
The hashtag #squadgoals often appears in wanderlust Instagram captions about a power posse, but it’s best paired with the two new Suffragette trailers. Carey! Meryl! The HBC! They're the HBICs fighting for a vote for women in the film – I’m all in. "We break windows, we burn things," Carey's character Maud says in the trailer. Full Story

Following its well-received premiere in Cannes a couple weeks ago, the first teaser trailer for Macbeth was released today. It’s good. Really good. A lot better, to me at least, than those clips that were released during the festival. Michael Fassbender is convincingly unhinged. You can almost see the moral rot leaking from his eyes. Full Story
You want to smell like Johnny Depp?
Dior is launching a new men’s fragrance. It’s just been announced that Johnny will be the face of the campaign, beginning in September. It’s the first time he’s fronted a beauty product. I guess that Pirates money isn’t going to last forever.
I can’t wait to see what these pictures look like. Will he insist on keeping on all the scarves and feathers and rings and rips in his clothes and hat? Or will it be more like the time Brad Pitt tried to sell us some Chanel with an awkward poetry reading? God, remember that? I’m going to make you watch it again:
Still makes me uncomfortable.
Yours in gossip,
