Celebrity "Try", including forced or unnatural behaviour to gain attention, change perceptions, or influence opinion on celebrity social status.
They say David Fincher managed to wrestle a good performance out of Justin Timberlake in The Social Network. They also say however that it’s not one for range. Essentially JT is playing the online renegade version of himself, the boy band lead singer of music downloads. If you’ve seen any of his other work however, you know Pippy’s acting is the Cringe.

So f-cking hard. Even the Alba Bitch seems to be taken aback by his Try. And she’s no stranger to Try. This is Jared Leto sitting beside Jessica Alba at the Dior show in Paris yesterday screaming ME ME ME ME ME ME ME. It’s more than just the hair. It’s the way he’s holding his body too. Full Story
It was totally funny for Tropic Thunder. It was a little less funny during the movie’s closing credits and on the DVD. It was I guess ok funny to do it for the MTV Movie Awards ads. It was definitely not funny when he opened the show.

Can you imagine how happy Kate Beckinsale must be these two weeks? It’s virtually impossible, in theory, among so many tacky Euros, to OverDress in Cannes.

Now it’s just funny. Now it’s just become pure entertainment. Every Monday, let’s watch Lea Michele TRY.It’s upfront season. TV people parade their wares.

It’s Lainey. Am writing this during the arrivals at the opening of the Cannes Film Festival. We’re shooting the carpet and I’m laughing my Chinese ass off at Kate Beckinsale. Evidently no one told her Cate Blanchett is coming. But what else did we expect? The most notorious OverDresser in the business, of course Kate Beckinsale came like a preening swan, of course she brought her hardest Try, of course she doesn’t realise it never, ever amounts to much, and especially not on a night when Queen Cate takes it up everyone else’s ass.

What? I know. I hated writing that too. But after combing through the photo agencies looking at pictures from last night’s NY premiere of The Killer Inside Me, the thought that kept coming to mind was: Goddamn Kate Hudson is annoying me. It’s the lipstick, it’s the hair, it’s that loud ass f-cking coat, it’s the posing, and the too extra camera flirting – ordinarily she can do it with little effort, very naturally, beguilingly, but for some reason, last night Kate Hudson showed up with so much Try.
