Jake Gyllenhaal wasn’t at the Palais last night. The jury wasn’t required. Here he is today around town. And pictures of him from opening night on Wednesday looking very smooth in that tux. While Jake had no official engagements to attend on Thursday, he was part of the Weinstein annual Cannes presentation – not necessarily in person but in performance. Full Story

As you’ve heard, JLO’s going to Vegas, officially. The residency begins in January at Planet Hollywood. As I said before, JLO’s a good show. But there aren’t that many hits. So the spectacle might be more important than the songs, you know? The clothing, the makeup, the hair, the choreography. Full Story

THIS. This is why Harry was voted the Most Popular Royal last year ahead of even his granny, the Queen. And this is what sets him apart from his brother and his sister-in-law…who’ve either forgotten spontaneity or have been asked to bury it in themselves. Because wherever Harry goes, despite the fact that Vegas is well behind him now, you never know when he’ll take it off-script. Full Story

George Clooney handcuffed himself to David Letterman last night. To me, he seemed quite comfortable. And quite comfortable alluding to the fact that he was comfortable. And yes, as a favourite of Letterman’s, Clooney was a three block guest. Sort of. I mean, officially, he was a two block guest, but he pulled up a stool and stuck around for Tom Waits. Full Story

Scandal Season 4 Episode 22 season finale recap So I learned about trade-offs recently. Not in the colloquial sense, but in the actual, scientific sense. Whenever you’re trying to make a product or satisfy some criteria, you acknowledge that there will be places where you can’t satisfy as much of the criteria as you would like in one category, in order to satisfy other categories. Full Story

It’s PetSmart Charities of Canada’s National Adoption Weekend! Happening at PetSmart stores across the country May 15 – 17. Meet the dogs and cats up for adoption, talk to volunteers about the adoption process, plan for a new member of your family… This is especially important because this time of year marks the start of kitten season, a very busy time of year for animal shelters across the country. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

If I was in Cannes, one of the films I’d be queuing for this weekend is the Amy Winehouse documentary directed by Asif Kapadia. Have you seen Senna? One of the best sports documentaries of all time. Obviously more enjoyable if you were a fan of Ayrton Senna but still riveting if you’re not. And I feel like it will be the same with Amy.

I was at a barbecue last weekend when Back To Black came on rotation.

And I’m a tiny penny rolling up the walls inside

Duana and I looked at each other and, almost at the same time, sighed, “Oh Amy”.

Oh Amy.

It was announced yesterday that Amy will be released in theatres July 10. The trailer is below.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Colin Farrell and Ewan McGregor worked together on a Woody Allen film called Cassandra’s Dream a few years ago. Here they are arriving in Nice for the Cannes Film Festival today and they happen to be travelling in the same outfit, just coincidence no conspiracy. Ewan knows Cannes. He was a jury member in 2012. Full Story

I remember hearing a story last year of a woman who flew to Australia with an orange and it turned into a major drama when she got there. They’re serious over there about contamination and bio-transfers. So if you have pets, and you’re travelling there with them, they have to go into quarantine. Full Story

Sean Penn joined Charlize Theron at the Palais in Cannes for Mad Max: Fury Road today. Is this supposed to be our substitute for Brange Cannes? Because I reject that. I was however reminded of previous Cannes. There was a year he was there and I was covering it and on the party scene, he was always the last one to go home. Full Story
