Photo Assumption Articles

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

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

I LOVE these pictures of Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber at the Laker game last night. Because obviously I’m obsessed with them, but also because of the Photo Assumption you can apply to Selena’s face when a young fan approaches for a photo. Adversaries come in all ages and sizes. Selena and Justin were then asked to kiss for the camera. Full Story

Last week I posted runway photos from the Victoria Beckham collection. Click here if you missed it. David Beckham was seated front row next to Anna Wintour, luring her with the intention of putting his wife on the cover of US Vogue. Here’s Victoria by Victoria Beckham, her lower priced line that’s become quite popular in its own right, as seen recently on Michelle Williams at the Oscar Nominees Luncheon. Full Story

With her sceptre.It takes a certain dedication to be comfortable being uncomfortable. And for over three hours. I often think this of Victoria Beckham and her heels. How she suffers for her image. Same goes for Lady Gaga last night, crammed into that seat. With no reason, not one, to get up. That’s my way of saying she lost in every category. Full Story

With all the sh-t we’ve been throwing at Rooney Mara for her excessive “aloof”-ness, how much do you LOVE this photo of her aloofing (by photo assumption) Meryl Streep yesterday at the Oscar Nominees Luncheon? True story - I had people over the other night for the Super Bowl. My friend Fiona was cheering for the Giants because she likes the Mannings. Full Story

A long time ago, when Joaquin Phoenix was #1 on my Five List, before he revealed himself to be a mega prick, and before Marion Cotillard and Guillaume Canet (happily) came together in real life, I would have reacted differently to these photos. Almost optimistically. In 2007, I would have LOVED the Gossip potential of Marion and Joaquin. Full Story

You knew while watching the MTV VMAs, right? That it was only a matter of time. Click here for a refresher. This is what I wrote then, based only on Video Assuming his face throughout the show, as he paid tribute to fellow addict Amy Winehouse while his wife took every opportunity on camera to boast about all her tequila shots:“There were times he looked almost pained. Full Story

Scarjo feeling Scroogey?

Scarlett Johansson had a crusty face on in New York last night, presumably in town to begin a round of publicity for the upcoming We Bought a Zoo opening on December 23. Scarjo is never great with paps, unless of course she’s going out of her way to be great with paps when she knows she has to sell it (funny how that is, non?), but right now I wonder if it’s more than just the paps; right now I Photo Assume that it’s also a lot of Blake Lively. Full Story

Also on Wetten Dass in Germany the other day, the most random collection of guests...And for part of the program, Jessica Biel was seated next to Karl Lagerfeld. Needless to say, there’s some selective photo editing happening here on my part but, you know, on the one hand you have a collection of guests were are charismatic and entertaining and then there’s Shelfy, who’s less interesting than Karl’s doll and who’s never provided a witty or clever sound-bite in her life. Full Story
