"Who would want to work with this?" it's not...


Also, Maria Bello isn’t the one you wouldn’t want to work with, nor is it Liv Tyler.

Boy Crazy

"Who would want to work with this?" clue

Quote of the day - Jason Patric to @EW: “I was working with Ashley Judd, and she is a nightmare. She’s lazy, selfish, arrogant.” AMAZING.

[Comment From Patty ]
I love Penelope Cruz, but I'm not sure I'll ever get over the fact that she dated Tom Cruise. The Xenu! The ambiguous sexuality! What happened there? Was it a completely artificial relationship?
Lainey: Patty - to a point. I think she figured it out later. But the more I hear about her and Javier, the more it points to the fact that they're assholes. They're rude, ungrateful, unkind. The stories, there are so many of them. Of Javier especially being horrible to staffers. In LA he lost it on a wrangler just because she couldn't see down an aisle and tripped and delayed him for a minute. Every week I'm hearing some sh-t about his behaviour. It's so disappointing.

[Comment From April ]
Why is Javier Bardem so rude in real life? Is Penelope the same way?

Lainey: April - I have no idea what is up his ass. But he's a dick. And it's broken my heart. Penelope, on the occasions I've seen her, is not that way.

15 December 2010 Smutty Shout-Out
Sarah: Josh Kelley's brother is in Lady Antebellum and they're wild successful these days. Does this chap Heigl's ass at family gatherings?

Lainey: No, she probably still makes the dinner table conversation all about her.

She's a piece of work

16 & 18

Oh the modern teen.

So TMZ caught Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez at the IHOP in Philly the other day. Apparently they were on a date and held hands and giggled. Over pancakes. Sounds about right, right? Click here if you haven’t yet seen the photo of them leaving arm in arm. If you have a 12 year old who seems particularly forlorn today, this would be why.

Bieber is 16. Selena is 18.

When I was 18, there was no f-cking way I was dating a 16 year old. When I was 18, it was either my grade or much older. It was only when I got older that I started testing the limits of gay math. But this is not the point. The point is, for the modern teenage girl, does Bieber’s fever fame trump the younger age gap? If you polled ten 18 year old regular civilian girls right now, and asked them if they’d date Bieber, two years their junior, would they say yes because he’s THE Justin Bieber? Like, check out that picture. Because she has to hunch to be as short as he is.

There’s also the matter of this generation and their lover-sharing. Everyone in every friend circle ends up, at one time or another, messing around with everyone else. Taylor Lautner/Selena Gomez/Taylor Swift. Nikki Reed/Robert Pattinson/Kristen Stewart. Vanessa/Dan/Serena/Nate/Blair/Chuck. Ebola Hilton/Brody Jenner/Avril Lavigne. Now Demi Lovato/Justin Bieber/Selena Gomez. There are SO many examples. But it makes an already tense Lovato/Gomez situation even more so, non?

Photos attached of Selena and Bieber performing at the Jingle Ball the other night after their date.

How he lost it

Who would want to work with this?


She’s long had a reputation for being absolute hell to work with. I mean like straight up crazy. Leaves her sh-t, sometimes literally, everywhere, specifies exact times when people can or cannot talk to her, is foaming at the mouth insane one minute, calm and collected the next. Lately her opportunities have dried up. And this is a good example of why.

Press junket. A handler has to make sure she wakes up in the morning. Because she’s not a proper adult? She finds her completely out of it. Has to put her in the shower and HOLD HER UP. Picture that please. A grown woman having to be physically SUPPORTED in the shower to make sure she can go and do her JOB. She then had to be spoon fed her breakfast. And she had to be dressed. Like, let’s put on your socks! Finally they get her to the point where she can be seen in public. A journalist is soon expected for an interview. Through it all she’s still a f-cking zombie.

Soon as the reporter comes into the room though, a switch goes off. She’s alive. She’s engaging. She can speak in proper sentences. And you can imagine, for the people who’ve experienced this, who’ve had to work with her, who have to manage the unpredictability of this, how scary it must be, how utterly unsettling, even more unsettling than most of her peers. And in her business, that’s a pretty high standard.
