Emma spent the last couple months of 2013 in Hawaii working on Cameron Crowe’s new film. She decided to stay through the holidays, joined by Andrew Garfield. On NYE they went out to eat at a place called Haleiwa Joe's and a fan asked them to take a photo together. Look at her hand reaching back to grab the back of his head. Full Story
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt took their kids skating on Monday in Queensland. At one point, they circled the rink holding hands. Do you remember that? Did you have skateabouts in high school? Was there all kinds of drama over who would ask who to hold hands on the skateabout? Someone needs to write a YA novel featuring the angst that happens leading up to a skateabout. Full Story
For today’s introduction, to end 2013, I’ve decided to feature a celebrity who’s universally beloved. Someone who’s risen this year. Someone so “turnt up” – with grace, elegance, and ambition too – she likely won’t stop, can’t stop, through 2014. Someone who emerged, a revelation, a discovery, a major new talent.
There’s not much that’s truly good in Hollywood, as you know. But there are exceptions. Tonight is a good time to celebrate them.
Lupita Nyong’o, congratulations on the year that was. She delivers an extraordinary performance in 12 Years A Slave. She’s thoughtfully navigated her first major press and award circuit. She’s become a red carpet star. She’s smart and patient in an industry that rewards impetuous fools.
So a toast to her…
And a toast to you.
Wishing you a safe evening, surrounded by those you love. And if not, if you are alone, because yes, life is definitely not equal, may tonight be the beginning of the end of your sh-tty times and your sh-tty year. Maybe 2014 be better for all of us. Maybe Gossip be better for all of us!
Thank you so much for supporting LaineyGossip. Thank you for reading our posts, for sending your emails and tweets, for shouting at us and laughing with us. We can’t wait to do it all over again next year.

In the last half of the year, Ariana Grande kept coming up a lot in our etalk morning meetings. One day, I finally asked, “Do I have to care about her!? Do I have to?” Apparently yes. And it’s only just building. They’re saying we will all have to care about Ariana Grande in 2014. Full Story

Zachary Quinto went out for a walk with the dogs yesterday in NYC. He was accompanied by boyfriend Miles McMillan, a model, obviously. This is a ridiculously goodlooking couple. RIDICULOUS. Zachary broke up with Jonathan Groff, Lea Michele’s best friend, in July which was around the time he was first seen with Miles. Full Story

Check out Charlize Theron on the beach in Hawaii. I had no idea her hair was so curly. Did you? Some believe that Charlize is staying with Sean Penn while on holiday. He has a beach house there. But there’s been no suggestion that the two are dealing with each other romantically. Apparently it’s a friends-only situation because the two have known each other for years. Full Story
Well, there might be one. But it probably won’t be the Smiths. Here are Will and Jada at LAX yesterday leaving for Dubai, all smiles. There have been rumours for months that these two are done, that Jada’s been unhappy and singing songs about leaving him, and that a split is imminent. Maybe…eventually? But not in 2013. Full Story
