Photo Assumption Articles

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

Kristen Stewart has a new girlfriend – French actress and musician Stephanie Sokolinski, aka Soko. Kristen flew to Paris the other day to see her and was met at the airport with flowers and enthusiasm. Today they were papped hanging out, holding hands, and kissing. Let’s play Photo Assumption, our favourite game of meaningless conclusions based on a snapshot. Full Story

Late last year, Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus were reportedly all over each other at a bar in New York while Joshua Jackson was travelling the world. Click here for a refresher. They both denied that they were hooking up. Here’s Diane with Joshua at the Smart People opening night in New York, their first red carpet since whatever did or didn’t happen with Norman went down. Full Story

Let’s play Photo Assumption, the not very accurate game of gossip, with Nicki Minaj’s expressions through the show last night at the American Music Awards. At any point, do you think she looked around and asked herself why the f-ck she bothered? It cannot have been lost on Nicki that many of her peers, the ones she considers to be on her level, weren’t there. Full Story

Several people this week have asked me if JLO and Ben Affleck were caught getting back together. I don’t know where this is coming from. My guess is the supermarket checkout. It’s not true. It would be suuuuuuch great gossip. And we live for great gossip. But it hasn’t happened. You know what is (still) happening though? Slum Bear. Full Story

I’m still choked about Serena last week. I’m also choked that people are blaming Drake. They don’t give her enough credit when she wins and they can’t even give her credit when she loses. But while I can’t move on, she obviously has. Serena Williams presented her Signature Collection by HSN yesterday at NY Fashion Week. Full Story

Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen were photographed leaving a movie theatre on Monday. There are almost 30 shots in this photo set. And I could only afford to buy one of them but their expressions don’t change. They’re holding hands. But they look… serious. Maybe it was a serious movie? Here’s an interesting game of Photo Assumption though. Full Story

At this point, True Detective S2 is a proper hate-watch. That f-cking dialogue. I set my Sunday nights at 9PM to the show, while my mask is drying, as a challenge to not move my face and f-ck up the work that the serum is supposedly doing to shrink my pores. Every time Rachel McAdams comes on, it’s a relief. Full Story

Rachel McAdams and Jake Gyllenhaal presented at the ESPYs, though not together. She was paired on stage with Kiefer Sutherland. The internet, it seems, wants her to be paired with Jakey in real life. They do look cute as f-ck together, don’t they? Here’s how it went down before the show. Full Story
