The Grey Goose Soho House party on Saturday night was sick. The venue: a subway platform at Bay Station. Two trains with blue lit compartments lined each side of the platform and a long bar bordered one which, naturally, became my office for the evening. The event was in honour of Harry Brown, the new film starring Sir Michael Caine and Emily Mortimer (pictured here with Terry Gilliam) who is pregnant and due in January. Full Story

Thursday night to kick off Midnight Madness at TIFF – a screening for Jennifer’s Body starring, as you know, Megan Fox as a high school girl and boy murdering demon written by Diablo Cody. Starting with Diablo Cody… I had Diablo Cody fatigue after Juno. If I’m honest though, maybe it wasn’t Diablo Cody fatigue. Full Story

Everyone here in Toronto is on high Clooney alert. Even though he hasn’t travelled more than 3 blocks from his hotel since arriving, he cannot go anywhere on foot. Must be in a car from stop to stop, even if it’s only 100 yards, not because he’s high maintenance but because it’s a security issue. Full Story

She is determined to hide this pregnancy for as long as she can. Penelope Cruz’s Broken Embraces screened at TIFF last night and Pene picked the perfect dress to hide the burgeoning bump. It’s beautifully cut, non? Drapes well, is still flattering, shows off her best assets: Those legs. Full Story

Jennifer Connelly looks beautiful IN SPITE of that dress. Jacek loves it of course because of the see-through breasts. This is the problem. It’s not just that it isn’t photographing with the light, it’s also that it’s not a particularly great fit. The material clings awkwardly around her chest, looks cheap. Full Story

The opening gala tonight at TIFF at Roy Thompson is for Creation starring the aforementioned Jennifer Connelly. Normally that’s the big cheese. But at the Elgin it’s Penelope Cruz for Broken Embraces with Pedro Almodovar. And it’ll will be a clustesrf-ck too. Especially since she’s pregnant. Full Story

Am mortified that Lainey called when I was watching America’s Next Top Model and that I had to own up to it. Yes, I’m a complete reality TV junkie whether it involves a bachelorette, castaways on an island, or a group of 12 losers locked in a house. Don’t act like you’re above it. Full Story
