Cannes has always been good to Gong Li. You could even call it adoration. I was once in an elevator with Gong Li in Cannes at the Carleton Hotel. As a Chinese person, growing up influenced by Chinese pop culture, it was an awesome moment. She was the face of Chinese cinema for a long time. Some might even call her one of the first faces of Chinese cinema as presented to the rest of the world. Full Story

Liz Hurley and Hugh Grant go out for dinner with her new boyfriend

Here’s a story about an actor and a model, two long-past-their-glory-days Brits, that obviously has nothing to do about the story of two very-much-in-their-prime American pop stars involved in a fight in an elevator…or does it? Look, I’m not trying to compare Liz Hurley to Beyonce, but I am going to argue that there’s a lesson to be learned, in the wake of the possible beginning of the end of the Knowles/Carter empire, from the fact that Hugh Grant and Elizabeth Hurley had dinner the other night. Full Story

A message from the Carters

Nets game last night in Brooklyn. The Carters came with a message: We’re good. This just hours after TMZ posted the video of Solange Knowles losing her sh-t on Jay Z in an elevator after the MET Gala after-party. Love reading all your interpretations of what went down in there. Some of you think B’s inaction is implied support of her sister. Full Story

Sometimes that’s all you need. And Julia’s been doing it since Pretty Woman. Here she is at The Normal Heart premiere last night in Dior. I LOVE this look. It’s better than almost all of her looks during award season. It’s cute. It’s fresh. It’s playful. It’s not just some f-cking DVF wrap dress made for a 40 year old woman. Full Story

Plan B produced The Normal Heart. So Brange showed up last night at the NY premiere of the film. (I desperately want a screener for this. Is anyone listening?) As you can imagine, it was a major win for HBO that the two decided to attend. HBO President Richard Pepler was there to greet them on the carpet and the Jolie gave him a very warm smile. Full Story

I reported last week that Chris Martin and Alexa Chung were out together in New York the night after the MET Gala. Click here for a refresher. Now HEAT Magazine has the photo. Not a pap photo but a shot that looks like it was taken on the creep by someone in the restaurant on their smart phone. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 could not hold on to the top spot at the box office this weekend. Instead it was Neighbours and a big win for Zac Efron. Just weeks ago he was getting his ass beat under a bridge in Los Angeles, a sketchy incident he still can’t quite explain.  Read Full Intro

Jolie, JLO

No connection. I just opened up the photo agency database and saw that they were both in New York today and making the same face. So I thought I’d side-by-side the two just for kicks. Angelina Jolie is in New York and was photographed leaving a meeting today. The paps were apparently surprised that she opened the gate for herself. Full Story

This story is blowing up. TMZ has now released extended footage of what happened in that elevator between Solange Knowles, Jay Z, and Beyonce. If you’re trying to understand what went down that night, if you’re looking for hints, clues, anything that might reveal the truth, it’s worth watching through the entire 3 minutes. Full Story

As summer movie season kicks off so does the biggest, glitziest film festival in the world, and this year Cannes is delivering early as we already have a smutty situation brewing around French director Olivier Dahan’s awful-looking Grace Kelly biopic Grace of Monaco, which will open the festival. Full Story
