I’ve described this to you before – Brad Pitt’s walk and talk red carpet signature move. He doesn’t stop. He’s like the US President before the State of the union, when the double doors open and he’s shaking hands and pointing at his friends and greeting people but he keeps moving… That’s how Brad Pitt normally works a carpet. Full Story

The Jolie, the kids, and the fish

While Brad Pitt was in Toronto supporting 12 Years A Slave this weekend, Angelina Jolie had all the kids with her in Sydney while working on her new film. She took 5 of them to the aquarium. Maddox was missing, evidently needing a break from his younger siblings and their noise. Can you blame him? But I wish I could wear a pair of cargo pants as well as the young Chosen One Shiloh. Full Story

Breaking Bad Season 5 Episode 13 recap. The purity issue is still in play, as the show opens with Lydia, Todd and the uncles and debating the colour of Todd’s meth. Is it blue? Blue green? Aquamarine? Terrible Lydia is clearly having a prolonged nervous breakdown, so Todd brings her tea and lends a sociopathic ear. Full Story

Here’s Jake Gyllenhaal at the premiere of Enemy last night. His girlfriend, Sports Illustrated model Alyssa Miller, was not photographed on the carpet. But she was there. I saw them together at the Hugo Boss after-party and it was like a fragrance ad come to life. They’re attractive enough as it is when they’re apart. Full Story

Nadia and Alida! Sorry you weren’t able to hunt down Michael Fassbender and ride him. Here are some shots of him at the Variety studio and the 12 Years A Slave presser the other day. I’ll have more stories about him later on. See you on September 20 at The Social! And for Lindy from Jill – Happy Birthday! Sounds like you had a great weekend in NYC and who gives a sh-t that there were no celebrities. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Miley Cyrus is supposedly collaborating with Kanye West. They have something in common: they're both always looking for a fight.

Yesterday Miley was Twitter-fighting a paparazzo and calling him a c-nt. You can see the tweet here. She also decided to throw down with Sklyer Gray, responding to a tweet from Gray on the night of the VMAs -- in other words, two weeks ago -- in which Gray told her to keep her tongue in her mouth.

Miley's response:

Why so angry? She's been fronting like the backlash and drama after her performance didn't affect her at all. Pulling up a tweet from two weeks ago and girl sh-tting over it doesn’t exactly suggest that she’s unaffected. And she may very well end up deleting it too – which makes it even worse. The thing about a wrecking ball is that there’s no finesse. Being a bitch takes finesse. Right now, Miley’s just all raw.

TIFF is now! Click here to read my column in The Globe & Mail from last night’s party scene. Also I’m giving away tickets on Twitter to see Jake Gyllenhaal tonight – check it here. And a gifting lounge giveaway is coming up later.

Several new TIFF photo galleries have been posted on LifeStyle. Please refresh through the day for updates.

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

I do not like being a cliché. I really don’t.   In fact, I struggle so much against doing things that are too ‘expected’ or in line with how I fit, demographically or by height or whatever that Lainey calls me contrary. I’m not  – but I’m cranky when people make a blanket statement like “Women hate x” and I can’t be all superior going “ WELL I DON’T”. Full Story

In a shocking turn of events, it’s been revealed that professional sex wolf, Joe Manganiello, is not as hot as we were led to believe. Last night, Joe, showed up at the 2013 Style Awards in New York without his trademark salt and pepper beard, instead sporting a freshly shaved face. While everyone in attendance who could see him still totally got a b*ner, none of them were said to be full b*ners, mostly standing at just 3/4. Full Story
