Photo Assumption Articles

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

Photo Assumption: Megan Fox & the Other Under 30s

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

Photo Assumption: Jennifer Aniston’s side-eye

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

Photo Assumption: Heigl’s Husband

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

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 3, 2011 11:34:08 May 3, 2011 11:34:08

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

Family Outing Photos for Assumption

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

Oscar Photo Assumption: Justin vs Justin

Lainey Posted by Lainey at February 28, 2011 11:19:34 February 28, 2011 11:19:34

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

Oh I could get with this

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

Grammy Midas Manslinger

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
