Can you picture the perfectly perky Reese Witherspoon hiking through 1,100 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail to search for herself? She couldn't either -- at first. "I had never seen myself in a movie like that before," said Witherspoon, at the Wild press conference in Toronto. But, Witherspoon's role in Wild is one every actress would salivate over, and is her best performance in nearly a decade. Full Story

I interviewed Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones yesterday at the junket for The Theory Of Everything. As already mentioned, the film is SOOOOOOO good. And their performances are …well…everything. The key here is that the story is told from her perspective. So it’s not really a biopic but a film about partnership. Full Story

In the last six years—ever since the economy took a sh*t in the world’s bed—the markets at film festivals have drawn down. Deals still get made at a comparable rate to pre-economy-sucking-it-hard days, but where once distributors were willing to throw money around to make a statement, expenditures on acquisitions have gone down, and now it’s not uncommon for even well-regarded films to sell for “paltry” sums in the low six figures. Full Story

A trailer for Jennifer Lopez’s new movie The Boy Next Door was released yesterday. It comes out in January, not exactly a month for quality pictures. But…I’m totally seeing this. And to all my friends out there, I know what you’re thinking and SHUT UP, this is not my life. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

My etalk assignments for TIFF this weekend: British duty. It wasn’t deliberate but somehow it just ended up that way. I interviewed Tom Hardy on the red carpet at the premiere of The Drop on Friday and again at the junket on Sunday.  Read Full Intro

Justin Theroux joined Jennifer Aniston this afternoon for the premiere of her new film Cake at TIFF. He’s actually been here a couple of days. Was photographed at the Warner Bros party on Saturday night without her. Today they did not walk the carpet together but agreed to a shot inside. As for Cake…well… You’ve heard it before: get ugly for Oscar. Full Story

JLO was doing JLO hair before the formation of Ariana Grande’s dimple, before she started buying fake hair. This is the original, and the best. So don’t call it the Ariana Grande even though that’s the only way she ever f-cking wears it. JLO pulls it out selectively. Memorably. Full Story

Ariana Grande was in Australia today to promote her new album. There was some drama. Apparently the media was made to wait an hour. Pfft. With Mimi it’s at least 3 hours. Then, when she was ready for the first photographer, her people supposedly passed on some strict instructions: -No relationship questions -Doesn’t want to talk about Mimi (As IF!) -Nothing about Sam & Cat or Jennette McCurdy (I don’t know what this means and you don’t need to explain, I’m good) -Justin Bieber -Her grandfather’s death Also…and here it comes… *DON’T use natural light. Full Story

Full disclosure: I have a thing for James Franco. He's on my list - usually at the top. Lainey may call him the "Artist," and think he can be insufferable, but in my mind, he's a phenomenal talent. I respect his creative flexibility, his academic pursuits, acting skills and Seth Rogen obsession. Full Story
