<a href="http://ad.ca.doubleclick.net/clk;205475611;28167293;i?http://Herbalessences.com"><img src="/i/StarSighting_banner.jpg" alt="Herbal Essences" width="534" height="194" /></a> <br/> <p>Every year during TIFF, my inbox triples with &ldquo;sighting&rdquo; reports (I saw Colin Firth going into my hotel room and he&rsquo;ll never come out!) or &ldquo;sighting&rdquo; requests &ndash; where are the stars? Where can I find them? Where should I go?<br /> <br /> <p>Welcome to the <a target="_blank" href="http://www.laineygossip.com/micro/TIFF-2008-Sightings.aspx">TIFF 2008 Sightings</a> page sponsored by Herbal Essences.</p> <br /> If you happen to catch Colin Firth before he comes up to my room, email me at <a href="mailto:sightings@laineygossip.com">sightings@laineygossip.com</a> to share with everybody else. If you want to know if Colin Firth is really in my hotel room, come back often. Because for the duration of the Festival, celebrity sightings will be updated in real time on this page, so if Brad Pitt and George Clooney are having a drink at the Windsor Arms, you&rsquo;ll know about it as it&rsquo;s happening. If Gerard Butler brings his carb face to the Starbucks right around the corner from where you work, you might be able to see the spittle gather in the corners of his mouth live and in person if you refresh in time to rush downstairs.<br /> <br /> Of course I&rsquo;ll be in Yorkville in the thick of it too and posting as soon as Colin (Firth or Farrell, it really doesn&rsquo;t matter) and I have tidied up.<br /> <br /> Wishing you all a happy, sleepless, often hung over TIFF 2008!</p>
