Quite possibly the best Anne Hathaway ever. LOOOVE this dress. If it’s actually Marchesa I’ll be suitably impressed. She looks lovely in purple, non? And the hair and the styling, all first class. All keeping the squirrel features squirrel features at bay, though I’m not mad about the bedazzling of the shoes. Do you like shoe bedazzling? I always think it looks… old.
Anne has been tight with Georgina Chapman and Harvey Weinstein lately. Word around town is that she’s his new favourite, having tried and failed with Sienna and the Alba Bitch. There is however some consternation about their growing affection, particularly because Harvey and her entrepreneurial and allegedly questionably ethical boyfriend Raffaelo Follieri have supposedly been thick as thieves. Rumour has it, some on Anne’s team don’t want her to get caught as a pawn in a business deal that ends up going sour.
Dark, dirty, sinister smut.
You think Washington is corrupt? Hollywood can run circles around Capitol Hill. But it always confounds me… why people are so willing to believe that politicians are scoundrels but have such a hard time accepting that actors and celebrities are conniving and manipulative and just as dishonest even though they actually ACT for a living, working and surviving and thriving in a town that’s as depraved and as amoral as they come.

PS. He is not holding Marion Cotillard. Or Eva Mendes. And not Heidi Montag who will never need to be the subject of a riddle. Why bother?
And Sienna Miller is not the subject of this one.
PS. Dax Shepard is not holding Kristen Bell. It isn’t Eva Mendes either. Or Rachel Bilson. Or Kate Hudson. And Sienna Miller is not the subject of this one.
PS. Keira Knightley is not being held. Beyonce isn't either.
Chuck Bass hasn’t made you forget about Seth Cohen, has he?
This just in! Exclusive!
Diablo Cody’s Juno follow-up is a film called Jennifer’s Body, with Jason Reitman producing and starring Megan Fox, the ghetto Angelina Jolie. Adam Brody has just been confirmed to the cast… and the movie, like Juno, will be shot in Vancouver. Production is slated to begin very soon.
Megan is being followed around closely by Brian Austin Green (aka David Silver) who, rumour has it, is clinging to his last days as her boyfriend. Word is, he will not leave her side, desperately afraid that now that she’s Hollywood lastest “it”, she’ll come to her senses and get the hell out.
Wonder if she’ll hook up instead with Adam and his clammy face?
It would be amazing if she did. Giving up the old David Silver for the new one. Giving up David Silver for Seth Cohen – do you love it, or do you love it?

The MiniVan Majority has finally found an heir to Jennifer Aniston. And she is becoming equally as annoying.
Katherine Heigl – loves the paps, is a gay crusader, manoeuvres behind the scenes for more air time, better scripts, the best lines… the all American perfect girl who has become a major Hollywood player. As I said a few months ago, between the Albas and the Biels and the Gellars, my money is on Heigl to be the new TV Girl with a rapacious appetite for more.
Which is why she’s now suddenly burning her bra in a new interview with Vanity Fair, offering her opinion on her box office winning movie Knocked Up, effectively kicking Judd Apatow in the balls:
“(Knocked Up) paints the women as shrews, as humorless and uptight, and it paints the men as goofy, fun-loving guys. It was hard for me to love the movie.”
Oh bitch… shut your ass!
If it was hard for her to love the movie, why did she do the movie??? Well…she did the movie for money. She did the movie for her career. Which means she put her professional ambitions over her personal beliefs. Which means she can be bought. And someone who can be bought should not be spewing off about positive female images. Or lack thereof.
And while we’re at it – how the hell do you think she landed this Vanity Fair cover anyway? And how is it that she’s suddenly commanding $6 million a movie? How else did she win that Emmy?
NOT on the strength of the sh*t that has become Grey’s Anatomy but on the popularity of one Judd Apatow, the new king of Hollywood.
This is what you call pissing on the man that makes you.
This is Katherine Heigl. Ungrateful, scheming, and a force to be reckoned with. There is a new famewhore in town. And she looks gorgeous in Vanity Fair.

Opportunity knocks but the past also drags. She has much to look forward to, and big shoes to fill, but the work is steady and only getting steadier and being attached to highly anticipated projects never hurts either.
Only slight problem… the man in her life isn’t exactly supportive. Part jealousy, part insecurity, and he knows how to hold her, even though she’d much rather, personally and professionally, be rid of the baggage.
Unfortunately he is unscrupulously forcing her to love him by good old fashioned blackmail. Because somehow she found herself in a delicate situation not too long ago and decided not to join the 08/08/08 sweepstakes. When she took care of it without his blessing, he hit the roof, and threatened to go public. She and her management have placated him for now.
But it’s the kind of scandal that would not sit well with the MiniVan Majority.
And so she’s waiting it out. Waiting for the right time to cut him loose, while he keeps pressing to make their commitment more permanent.

Smutty Break-Up Honourable Mention: Reese & Ryan
The sunkissed golden couple – young love, young parenthood, young success… Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe were the ultimate Hollywood fairytale. They met at her 21st birthday party – as legend goes, when she saw him she said, “well you must be my birthday present”. From that point they were inseparable, co-starring in Cruel Intentions when, during filming, Ryan famously admitted that he ran into the stairwell and threw up after shooting the scene where his character tells Reese’s that he wanted nothing to do with her.
She got pregnant, it was a shotgun wedding, Ava came along, and then so did super stardom – Legally Blonde made Reese a major player. Deacon made Reese and Ryan a quaint two kid family. But his success lagged behind. And still in his 20s, his horndog could not be tamed. Tempted by the party lifestyle, he was often seen prowling the LA club circuit acting the opposite of matrimonial.
But Reese wanted an Oscar. And even though she and her husband hadn’t been seen together for over 6 months, on the weekend that Walk the Line was released in theatres, suddenly the couple was photographed with their children running a weekend errand. Simply put – she campaigned hard. And he was expected to toe the line. Which he did grudgingly and through the rest of award season, right up to the Oscars, we observed the two of them over-the-topping their white picket love.
Remember how embarrassing he was during the Golden Globes? Remember how he tried to swallow her in front of the cameras at the afterparty?
Six months after receiving her Academy Award, they were done. And while they’ve managed to be publicly civil, while they’ve managed to refrain from warring in public, what makes this break-up particularly smutty is the fact that Ryan Phillippe is a cheating douchebag. His affair with Abbie Cornish on the set of Stop Loss made headlines immediately. Not surprisingly however, it was not his only infidelity. Turns out where fidelity was concerned, staying faithful was actually the exception.
Rampant betrayal in cities around the world, including Toronto and Vancouver, where at one point he was allegedly nailing three women who all worked at the same Cactus Club in Yaletown at the same time! Over in Toronto, it was a hostess at Lobby. And a few others in the same profession – rumour has it he would sneak away for a little afternoon action with one of them when Reese and the kids came to town to visit.
And if his philandering wasn’t enough, making it worse is that he went about it like a cheese dick. The kind of lame ass moves that will only work with naïve (or dumb) aspiring actresses who can’t see past the fame game. Am told he’d support his celebrity status with cringe-worthy overtures like cell phone poetry and long lingering looks, punctuated by protracted “sighs” of regret over his “loveless” marriage. I mean, come the f*ck on. If you need to step, at least do it in style.
Alas… it turns out Ryan’s cheating style is not unlike his dressing style. Beater tanks and greasy carb face all the time... Ryan Phillippe definitely peaked too early.
Jake Gyllenhaal on the other hand… Jakey will age well. Trust.
