Photo Assumption Articles

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

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

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

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

I just saw this photo and it made my life. Both Justin Timberlake and Justin Bieber were at the Vanity Fair party last night. So they met? Have they met before? I have no idea. And please don’t waste your time being know-it all-y about it either. The point is, in Photo Assuming this photo, Justin the Timberlake isn’t feeling it. Full Story

Ryan Gosling will not be at the Oscars this weekend. Which I still don’t understand because it’s not like Michelle Williams could have summoned that performance on her own, especially not in that film. Still… He may not be in LA but maybe Cincinnati is better. Check out these photos of Gosling on the set of The Ides of March with George Clooney whose parents came by for a visit yesterday. Full Story

I mentioned this during the liveblog last night – it’s something Kate Hudson and Gwyneth Paltrow have in common. They always date men on the upswing. Gwyneth of course had Brad, Ben, and Chris Martin just as Coldplay was soaring. Kate married Chris Robinson at the height of the Black Crows popularity, was with ARod for a World Series, and is now having a baby with Muse’s Matt Bellamy who just won a Grammy. Full Story

These photos were released earlier this week and I kept forgetting to post them. It’s Chelsy Davy in Zimbabwe on New Year’s Eve, surrounded by beer carby looking frat guys, clearly enjoying herself on a bender. Ugh. Each and every one of those boys looks like they’d be down with date rape. Full Story
