There is a handful of films I want, kind of desperately, to see in my lifetime, and for some reason, they’re all biopics. They are, in order: Nikola Tesla, Harry Houdini, World War II ladyspies Christine Granville and/or Nancy Wake, and pirates Bartholomew Roberts and Jean Lafitte. Out of all of those, the only one we’re remotely close to seeing is Harry Houdini as there are currently two Houdini projects in development, one at Sony and one at Lionsgate. Full Story

Gwyneth Paltrow spoke at the first Code Conference the other day in California. She was there hanging out with tech power players like Sergey Brin and Satya Nadella. You know what she talked about? Internet hate. Is she colluding with Tom Cruise? While Tom’s defenders focus on YouTube and blogs, G’s attack was on “trolls”, specifically people who comment anonymously online. Full Story

The premiere of Edge Of Tomorrow happened in London today at around 6:30am local. Man, I would be so pissed if I had to get up at ass in the morning to cover that carpet. The reason it started so early is because Tom’s doing press in 3 cities, starting in London, Paris later, and then ending in New York. Full Story

Pamela Anderson looked SO good with short hair. Did you see her in Cannes? It really, really worked for her. I’ve attached some shots of that below, after the mess of last night. Last night she showed up at the World Music Awards. And the extensions were back. Like 1987, metal band, Sunset Strip extensions. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

WWD reported a few days ago that Gisele Bundchen is the new face of Chanel No 5 and that Baz Luhrmann is directing the campaign. PEOPLE wrote about it yesterday and reminded me of the last time we talked about a Chanel No 5 ad – Brad Pitt’s.

And then I had to watch it again.

You remember. Brad ruminating on the meaning of life? As many of you come back from a long weekend in America, sluggish from the sun and beer, I thought you might want to revisit this.

New articles were posted yesterday if it was a gossip-free holiday for you. Please scroll down to get caught up.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

X-Men: Days Of Future Past did big business at the box office this weekend. And while it was definitely a group effort, fully supported by nerds, I do feel like Hugh Jackman has been the face of this effort, the one who carried them all on his back, publicity-wise, and who deserves a lot of credit. Full Story

The Daily Mail is reporting that George Clooney and Amal Alamudding are considering getting married at the place where they shoot Downton Abbey because she supposedly loves the show. And since she lives in England and they’re a UK paper, that makes them an authority on this wedding. Full Story

Tom Cruise was in Rome today to promote Edge Of Tomorrow. He’s doing some kind of whirlwind press tour later this week. London, Paris, New York all in one day. Suzanne sent me an article this morning this morning in support of Cruise, his career, his film choices, and his impact on the industry. Full Story

Sarah has a nickname for Amanda Seyfried that she uses on this site: oatmeal. I can understand why. But today I actually spent some timing thinking about Amanda Seyfried, her career. And you know what? Her choices don’t really suck. If they do ever suck, she doesn’t have to wear it. Like, we don’t blame her for The Big Wedding. Full Story
