Dear Gossips,

Yesterday Kathleen and our friend Brian shared a story with me that I’m still laughing about. I’m passing this laughter on to you. It’s Friday. It’s the weekend. The world seems like it will never stop being on fire.  Read Full Intro

Amanda Seyfried says that she and Thomas Sadoski’s relationship began when they were both available, both free to date other people and that there were no shady timelines even though she was with Justin Long and Thomas was married right before it was first reported that they were dating. It’s one thing, though, for her to characterise her situation with Justin as a “bad relationship” but… what do you think of her calling his previous marriage a “bad relationship” Full Story

Dwayne Johnson reteams with his Central Intelligence director, Rawson Marshall Thurber, for a disaster movie set in a very tall building that is equal parts Die Hard and The Towering Inferno. You would think a movie that stars The Rock and is equal parts Die Hard and The Towering Inferno would be, at the very least, dumb fun, but Skyscraper is oddly dull. Full Story

Taylor Swift’s reputation tour is now stateside. She has a couple of days off. And look, it must be Flashback Friday because she was papped today with Gigi Hadid in New York outside her apartment.

Earlier this year we learned Marvel (finally) greenlit a Black Widow movie, and now that movie has a director: Australian filmmaker Cate Shortland. Scarlett Johansson apparently backed Shortland because she liked Shortland’s 2012 movie, Lore. Full Story

Tom Cruise led the cast of Mission: Impossible – Fallout in Paris yesterday for the world premiere, kicking off what will most likely be a whirlwind press tour before the movie opens in two weeks. That’s what Tom is known for: stunts. All kinds of stunts. Death-defying, injury-inducing movie stunts and also crazy travel promotional stunts. Full Story

Yesterday, I wrote my most heartbreaking post yet about Michael Bae Jordan’s night out in St. Tropez with his “rumoured girlfriend” Ashlyn Castro. Before yesterday, I didn’t know MBJ had a rumoured girlfriend. Full Story
