"Doctor's orders" reveal 1


George Clooney is in London today promoting The Descendants. Here he is at the photo call with Shailene Woodley. Last night it was the UK premiere of The Ides of March where he posed with Evan Rachel Wood. I guess he doesn’t need an escort in London?

Does Stacy Keibler have to check in with his people when she’s not on duty? Like, if she’s staying with him in his suite in London, at the Dorchester or Claridge’s or whatever, does she have to ask for a day pass? It’s like any business trip that your company pays for. It’s important to be conscientious about your personal time and whether or not it infringes on your professional time. Must not be a difficult challenge for Stacy because, like, she quotes Buddha on her Twitter and sh-t. This is the wisdom she dropped on us today:

"Each morning we are born again. What we do today is what matters most." - Buddha

I try to imagine her saying these things to George Clooney and I wonder if she delivers her lines before or after she puts the tie around his neck.

As for George, they did a good job with his blush and foundation today. He looks really, really well rested.

Doctor's orders

"Her kids were watching," it's not...


As for whose kids were watching, thank you for all your emails, your judging, your huffing, and your tutting. I really, really love it. So interesting to me the difference in perspective depending on geography and cultural attitudes towards sex. It’s not Uma Thurman.

Her kids were watching

"Her kids were watching" clue?


See now they’re only shooting a scene here on the New York set of Thanks For Sharing but, like, I totally buy that Gwyneth Paltrow would be into Mark Ruffalo and vice versa. The way she’s touching her mouth while they’re talking. The way they can’t stop smiling. The way she’s giving him a nice ass shot, “stretching” mid-conversation...

Works for me. Totally, totally works for me. They actually look really, really cute together.


You don’t agree?

You hate her too much to agree?

I get that.

But can you arrive at a point where you might see that these two actors, accomplished ones, when they’re faking a relationship, make it more believable than when those useless Kardashian people do it and front like it’s for real?

Her kids were watching

Film set. Recently. She’s shooting a sex scene. Walking around set in her bra, no shirt on, panties, standard attire, nothing unusual about it...

Except that her children were there that day. They were visiting. And it was no thing, you know? That was her costume. They saw her in his costume while they were there. And then she sat them behind the monitor so that they could see her work and they watched while mom worked with another actor - she rubbed up against him, he returned the rubbing, she made love for pretend, for the movies, to a man that was not the father of her children, in front of her children.

I’m sure over 90% of you are all huffy and tutty about this and have been since the start of the 2nd paragraph. “It’s so inappropriate, it’s so bizarre, these people are sick f-cks”, etc etc etc. Me I’m still trying to decide. Part of me understands the huffing and the tutting. And the other part, well, it’s worth huffing and tutting over in real life, for civilians, because that’s simply not part of that world.

But take Kate Winslet for example - and this is NOT about Kate Winslet - who’s already been naked on screen several times, and her kids go to school with other kids whose parents have seen their mother’s breasts, and you realise, theirs is a totally different reality. And, given that that is the reality, if you are the subject of this riddle, do you prepare your children for it by bringing them with you, by showing them that this is not real, that this is what happens in filmmaking, that this is part of the process, that this is part of what’s considered their craft or their art, or whatever fancy word they’re using for it these days, that this is not dirty, that there’s nothing shady about it, in the hopes of removing or addressing in advance any stigma/embarrassment that might arise later...

Mommy is an Actor and this is what Acting is...

A part of me doesn’t disagree with that either, you know?

Anyway, I look forward to reading your emails.

Action Homewrecker

Action Homewrecker


A marriage is over. A one year old baby will now grow up in a broken home. Because the dickhead of a father couldn’t resist the action star. He’s a crew member on her show, no one famous. She is the star of the show. And a major bitch. Was hated before she decided to f-ck up a family. Is even more hated now. Because she decided she had to have him, that’s it, never mind that he’s married and his wife had a baby not too long ago. They’d been carrying on for a while. Then, one day about a month ago, they were fooling around and his wife walked in. She ended it right away. And, well, being that she also works in the industry, she didn’t bother hiding why.

He, of course, thinks he’s in love. She on the other hand is still dealing occasionally with a number of past and current co-stars. This is not the first time she’s taken what she wants when it’s supposed to be unavailable. And every time she leaves a mess behind. I’m told she truly believes there’s a hierarchy in the business. That those who are on camera, as she is, and look the way she does - really, really beautiful - are unquestionably entitled to things, and that those who choose to work in the same field, lower on the food chain, in doing so also implicitly buy into the same ideology. One night, at a Hollywood party, when she was on hiatus, she apparently shared this with several people over dinner, speaking only to the men and not their wives who sat there open-mouthed as this bitch pretty much told them that if she decided to f-ck their husbands, they’d have to accept it as part of the world order. It’s not Scarlett Johansson.
