Dear Gossips,

April Fool’s Day? For some. For me, April 1 has always been the most important day of my life. My parents were married on April 1. Jacek was born on April 1. I signed my first major contract on April 1. So when Random House Canada offered me the privilege of choosing any day in April as the official release day of my book, Listen To The Squawking Chicken, the Squawking Chicken herself decided that it had to be today, April 1.  Read Full Intro

Check out the new cover of FLARE. I love this shot of Eva Mendes. I love the way it’s lit. If only we could all be lit so softly, so flatteringly. For some reason, I’m also really into the shot of her inside the magazine with her feet in the sink, picking her toes. If I walked in on a woman doing that, I’d find it incredibly sexy. Full Story

When Nicole Richie's AOL webseries #CandidlyNicole came out, I was all for it (see here and here for a refresher). At the time, I wrote that all the things that she's done in her career - bratty socialite, BFF of Ebola Hilton, fashion designer - are things we (and by "we" I mean those of us who like our celebrities with a bit more cache) frown upon. Full Story

I called it a mirage – yesterday’s Johnny Depp post from a presser in Beijing which isn’t something he does very often anymore. Today’s premiere… I can’t. I can’t with how high his pants are hitched up. The stitching around the waistband. The Billy Ray Cyrus neck embellishment. Full Story

I think it’s time for a come to Jesus. I think we need to sit down and decide what’s important—I mean really important—and what you want the film industry to look like in the 21st century. Because we’re fourteen years into a new millennium and things are evolving, socially, politically and culturally. Full Story

Sarah wrote about Chris Evans yesterday. Click here for a refresher. Her point was that the Cap2 press tour has become about him explaining that he’s not quitting acting…because he didn’t think before he whinged about Marvel contracts. Full Story

Last year, Warner Brothers announced their intention to make a Harry Potter spin-off film based on a text book mentioned in the series, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Newt Scamander. Now, Warner Brothers CEO Kevin Tsujihara tells the New York Times that the Fantastic Beasts spin-off will in fact be three “megamovies” and are described as being neither prequels nor any linear relation to Harry’s story. Full Story

The summer of 2007 was HOT. One of the great things about Toronto  summers is that they are sultry all day and all night. The temperature doesn’t change at all, and so days and nights flow into each other in a way that’s gorgeous and exciting. The other thing I remember is that my friend Matt got us watching How I Met Your Mother at lunchtimes. Full Story

Chris Martin, now consciously uncoupled, was on The Voice last night. His appearance was pre-taped. Still, that can’t have been a disappointment for NBC seeing as their new guest mentor was basically the biggest headline in entertainment news last week. Oh timing. Coincidence or conspiracy? As I was first to report last week, Chris and Gwyneth were in Eleuthera last week. Full Story
