Photo Assumption Articles

The game of using photos to draw conclusions, rational or otherwise, about celebrity relationships, moods, gestures, and other likely untrue assumptions.

Ben Affleck was out for lunch yesterday in LA with David Fincher. Was it a directors’ meeting? Or was it an actor meeting with a director? For all Fincher’s acclaim, it’s actually Ben who’s directed an Oscar-winning picture, and not the other way around. Se7en, Fight Club, The Social Network vs Gone Baby Gone, The Town, Argo – what do you think? That’s not a bad throw-down, non? Not a foregone conclusion either. Full Story

Total Photo Assumption here but still... I love her, and I study her face, and it seems like, well, I feel like this is my G’s white knuckle face. Can you see it? Gwyneth Paltrow was in Chicago on Saturday to be honoured at the Gene Siskel Film Centre. Tickets were $400 and it was sold out. Full Story

Michael Fassbender was photographed outside The Groucho Club last night with a non-famous blonde, not exactly his usual target. So... is it happening? On Photo Assumption I’ll say yes based on that sheepish look on his face that can’t be blamed entirely on drunkenness and, since we’re only photo assuming anyway, I’ll add that they probably don’t know each other very well, as this kind of awkwardness implies a lack of familiarity. Full Story

Renee Zellweger and her boyfriend Doyle Bramhall II arrived back in LA together yesterday after a weeklong trip to New York. They were first sighted together last week on their way out and didn’t mind holding hands, even in front of the paps. Full Story

Kiki, Reese, Taylor... No more blondes? Here’s Jake Gyllenhaal walking around New York on Friday with his best friend Austin Nichols and a new dark-haired girl on his arm, and attached to his hand. It’s been three days and, at press time, she’s yet to be identified. Not that the effort hasn’t been there. Full Story

Anna Wintour’s the one showing some smile teeth...but are they friendly or are they grinding themselves down? It’s time to play our favourite game - drawing conclusions based only on photos, and this time, maybe multiple choice? A.Anna is drawing on every ounce of Britishness she has left in her, Dowager Maggie Smith styles. Full Story

Time to play a Royal Olympic edition of Photo Assumption... There were two royal weddings last year - one was young and exuberant, the other was, literally, weepy and depressing. Here are Catherine of William and Albert of Monaco at synchronised swimming today. Kate, of course, would never betray all those years of royal practice and training by dry heaving in his face while he’s leaning over to, I dunno, impart his wisdom. Full Story

SPOILER. William, his Catherine, and Hot Harry watched Zara Phillips and Team GB win the silver medal today in equestrian! Zara did not medal herself but of all people, with her family origins, she’d be the first to say the individual is not important. As for Will and Kate... There’s some husband/wife flirting going on here, non? SO cute. Full Story

Ok but how f-cking cute were Beyonce and Jay-Z last night at the BET Awards? (I actually watched a 2 minute news reel today narrated by a British newscaster who called it the “bet”, as in rhymes with “met”, awards. Jesus!)  B and J went head to head in the Video Of The Year category and Jamie Foxx alluded to it getting a little testy up in the private jet. Full Story

It’s not just these photos; in most photos it’s easy to assume that Sarah Jessica Parker demonstrably worships Matthew Broderick’s talent and is happy to let him know, like, all the time. Here she is last night gazing at him proudly at the premiere of his new musical Nice Work If You Can Get It. Maybe she’s just feeling protective of him. Full Story

Love these pictures of Mila Kunis up on stage with James Franco at CinemaCon yesterday to promote Oz: The Great And Powerful. Franco, of course, is the Artist. She had the privilege of standing beside him while he educated the audience on his artistry. I mean her face says it all, doesn’t it? Oh My God, I so do not want to f-ck you. Full Story
