Dear Gossips,

We had our general election here in Canada last night. So let’s stay Canadian in this space today with a beloved Canadian who generally keeps a low profile, Rachel McAdams. She was seen yesterday doing some shopping in LA.  Read Full Intro

A groundbreaking graphic novel in the 1980s, Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ Watchmen remains today one of the most influential pieces of 20th century speculative fiction. A deconstruction of superhero comics and the geopolitics of the Cold War, Watchmen is a kind of adaptation holy grail. Its rich iconography and story of broken and twisted superheroes makes it a prime cinematic target, but the single adaptation to date is a mixed bag, at best; Zack Snyder’s 2009 film kinda-sorta works, but changes to the ending of the story are still being debated a decade later. Full Story

Channel 4 in the UK aired a documentary last night about Prince Andrew’s friendship with dead rapist pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. It was a 12 year relationship and they travelled in style from Europe to the Caribbean to the US, surrounded by girls, many of whom were underage. Andrew has always insisted he did nothing wrong. Full Story

As expected, after Harry & Meghan: An African Journey aired on ITV in the UK on Sunday night, during which Meghan Markle said that it’s been a struggle to cope with the relentless attack of the British tabloids and Prince Harry revealed that worrying about his wife and child and their safety was affecting his mental health and that he and his brother, Prince William, were on “different paths” right now, all the focus yesterday was on the brothers’ relationship and the perceived deepening of their rift. Full Story

The final trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker dropped last night, and I have a very serious question: What if the movie doesn’t live up to this trailer? This is a GREAT trailer. It’s hitting all the right notes—thrilling, mysterious, nostalgic (Carrie!), exciting, gorgeous visuals. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Jennifer Lawrence married Cooke Maroney in Rhode Island this weekend. Many, if not most, of the expected celebrity guests were there: Emma Stone, Adele, Amy Schumer, Kris Jenner, and some who weren’t on the prediction list, like Sienna Miller, Cameron Diaz, Nicole Richie, and Ashley Olsen.  Read Full Intro

Hi Duana,   Despite being an avid reader, I didn’t think I would need your advice when it came to naming my daughter (due middle of October). My partner and I are both big F. Scott Fitzgerald fans and early on fell in love with the name Zelda.  It’s a touch old fashioned so she won’t feel out of place with all her future hipster classmates Charlotte, Enid and Elspeth, but modern and unusual enough that she can still feel unique (or give her a few options of El, Ellie, Ella if she wants). Full Story

Thanks to Casey for giving me the heads up about these photos, I needed them. It’s Election Day here in Canada and everyone is saying it’s too close to call. There’s been stress for days. So…how about a Canadian we can all agree on?  Keanu Reeves and Alexandra Grant went out for sushi the other night. Full Story
