Photo Assumption Articles

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

Most tabloids close tonight. Just in time then for Star/Life&Style/InTouch/etc to throw these shots on the cover – Brad caught cheating! Brad Pitt is in Rome or England (the photo agency can’t make up its mind about the location but does claim to be able to read Brad’s behaviour) continuing to shoot World War Z after spending a few weeks in production in Malta in which he appeared to only wear one outfit. Full Story

Check out his face in the first photo. Says it all, non? I observed them last night on the carpet and it wasn’t like he was any different from the images we usually see of the two of them together. He seemed over it. He seemed ... not so enthusiastic. In sharp contrast to his wife Sarah Jessica Parker who was very animated, very excited, all smiles. Full Story

It’s just one photo, one face, but I like it for the purpose of this story. Jennifer Garner at the BAFTA Gala to meet Will & Kate and, well, Jennifer Lopez AND Blake Lively were also there. That’s an easy Photo Assumption, non? Interestingly enough, you’ll note that both Garner and Lopez bumrushed it over to say hello to Princess Catherine and have their photos taken but Blake Lively. Full Story

Just for fun. From the Maui Film Festival. It’s Megan Fox with Olivia Wilde, Andrew Garfield, and Garrett Hedlund. All of them are receiving awards at the event. I’m not sure Megan’s award is acting related though... Anyway, the way I photo assume this first image it’s like, well, the other three are tight, and then with Megan. Full Story

LOVE THIS PICTURE SO MUCH! Jennifer Aniston showed up with her brand new boyfriend Justin Theroux at the MTV Movie Awards afterparty last night at Soho House. So they’re public now. Already? The MTV Movie Awards – this is not Jen’s usual scene. Oh I see. Are we still using that playbook? Really? Jennifer Aniston has a movie coming out. Full Story

It’s time to make up baseless assumptions by studying a series of photographs. Let’s play Photo Assumption on Katherine Heigl’s husband’s side-face while out for lunch yesterday with her and her mother. Horror, right? Total HORROR. Imagine – as if Katherine’s goddamn hair isn’t bad enough, it actually MATCHES her mom’s… !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT MATCHES HER MOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What is happening here? HOW is it being allowed to happen? I know I’ve asked this before. Full Story

Met SEX: Blake Lively

Her tits are not pouring out. Her ass is not hanging out. In fact, Blake Lively has probably never been more covered. And somehow, this girl, still she throws it out there all the time: SEX, SEX, SEX. Right? The way that sheet covers half her body, it’s like she’s in bed, strategically positioned invitingly, so that you want to lift a corner of that blanket over her and climb inside. Full Story

Video Assumption: are they doing it?

There’s been all kinds of speculation about Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake. About whether or not he broke up with Jessica Biel to pursue her. About how badly he wanted to get in there when they were shooting Friends With Benefits. About how it could all just be a publicity stunt leading up to the release of the movie. Full Story

Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick took their son to the Broadway premiere of Catch Me If You Can last night in New York. I really do love it when they walk a carpet together. It’s one of my favourite Photo Assumptions. Let’s play! I particularly like the way her hand is gripped around his neck. Full Story

Photo Assumption the kid with the side-eye

This photo cracks me up. Many of you email consistently asking for more Jon Stewart. He’s on your Five Lists. Totally down with that. Stewart’s not papped very often though. Much as you love him, Jon doesn’t sell. And unless he does something wicked and crazy – not likely – he’s not going to land on the cover of a tabloid magazine. Full Story

Oscar Pippy and his Ex

Duana seemed to think Pipsqueak was on his “best behaviour” while presenting last night at the Oscars. Best Behaviour where Justin Timberlake is concerned, to me at least, would be to read the f-cking monitor and get the hell on with it. Could he resist? Could he resist the urge to make the moment all about himself? Has he ever resisted? Please. Full Story
