Johnny Depp clipped his wing

That’s what Harrison Ford said to me when I interviewed him in a sling in 2008 in Cannes after breaking my arm:

“So you clipped your wing.”

He clipped his wing(s) too. Thanks God he’s expected to make a full recovery.

Here’s Johnny Depp getting on a jet in Brisbane yesterday to fly back to the States for surgery. As you can see, he clipped his right wing, apparently on the set of Pirates 5. They’re saying production won’t be held up much because they’ll shoot around his recovery. Word is he was NOT on set when he was injured…

Probably just an innocent fall, perhaps while hanging out on the couch with his best friend Marilyn Manson, who’s also been spending time in Australia the last few weeks to play a music festival. I don’t think I could have coughed any louder.

http://www.laineygossip.com/Michelle-Rodriguez-and-Zac-Efron-break-up/31068

Michelle & Zac are over

And I’m sure you’re shocked. (If you are, actually, shocked, you haven’t been doing your homework.)

US Weekly reports exclusively that Michelle Rodriguez and Zac Efron have ended their summer romance. He’s back at work on a movie called We Are Your Friends. Not as much free time to party, not as much free time to need a European party partner and a European party cover. Maybe he doesn’t need one to do his thing in LA. As long as he avoids the bridges and the overpasses.

Strategically though, it was a short beneficial relationship, especially for him. Personal bonuses aside, it affirmed his “dude” status, being the guy who was man enough to be attractive to a woman who’s been known to prefer women, on top of the frat boy performance he gave in Neighbours. Suddenly everyone’s forgotten about the broken jaw and the homeless scuffle.

Someone decided that Ibiza would be the place this summer. So they’re all there. Leo, JB, Orly, Lohan, and now Zac Efron who’s joined Michelle Rodriguez there, just a few weeks after they were yachting together in Italy, declaring to the world that they’re a couple.

Sure, OK.

Last night they were out at a club, grinding up on each other and kissing – TMZ has just posted the video:

It wasn’t too long ago that Zac was getting the sh-t kicked out of him under a bridge in LA. And slipping on his floor and injuring his jaw. And, oh yeah, going to rehab. Ibiza must be good for sobriety then? That and other undercover activities.

Michelle Rodriguez & Zac Efron: Couple of the summer?

I don’t usually give a sh-t about who Zac Efron is hooking up with. Taylor Swift? Just rumours. But Michelle Rodriguez certainly makes him look good. They’ve been on holiday together for a couple of weeks in Sardinia. Finally confirmation that they’re, well, at least having sex if not properly dating. New photos were posted on Twitter this weekend of the two of them kissing and touching and definitely …intimate.


You can see better shots of them here.

As you know, Michelle was previously with Cara Delevingne. Personally I’d take Cara’s wild drama over Zac’s cheesy abs. Evidently that was no longer a possible. So, she’s spending time with Zac, and some rich Euros, on a yacht. Which, frankly, is more of a win for him than it is for her. That’s the plan, right? To build the man cred after being a Disney teenbeat heartthrob? He was the ultimate Dude capital-D in Neighbours. Now his cock is so stiff he can bang a girl who normally likes girls. Sure.

So what’s the connection? How did this happen?

They’ve known each other a while. Two years ago in Cannes, I was invited to Mohammed Al Turki’s yacht party. Al Turki is a very rich man, now producing movies. He and Zac worked together on At Any Price. I was with another entertainment reporter working for a magazine. We were asked by Mr Al Turki’s publicist to pay our respects to him in his private quarters on the lower level of the boat. When we got there, he was surrounded by beautiful women. And Michelle Rodriguez was on the couch with them. She was the DJ that night. It’s a weird reality to observe. To be that wealthy that you can just hire beautiful people to stand around like objects in your presence. To be famous enough that wealthy people can just hire you to stand around like an object. To be famous enough that they just pay you the way they pay their staff to be their friends, to make them feel even more important.

For Zac Efron, it’s been an unpredictable year. Rehab, strange accidents resulting in injured jaws, a random fight under a sketchy bridge in LA, then triumph at the box office…

It seems like it’s getting back on track. Or is it?

Mandy Moore & Ryan Adams break up

Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams confirmed their split this weekend. Here’s the statement from her publicist:

"Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams have mutually decided to end their marriage of almost 6 years. It is a respectful, amicable parting of ways and both Mandy and Ryan are asking for media to respect their privacy at this time."

No reason has been offered so far. But, um, you know. You’re not blind. Apart from that though, was it a surprise?

I’ll never forget how he broke up with her about 7 or 8 months or so before they got engaged because he was pissy about the attention their relationship was attracting. You remember? He actually wrote a letter to the tabloids, bitching about the scrutiny. And at the very the end, he cited his desire to “remain punk as f-ck” as a reason for ending their relationship. Click here for a refresher.

Later he grovelled his way back into her heart. But, God, didn’t that leave such a stench of vain asshole in your mind?

These are the first shots of Scarlett Johansson since it was revealed that she and that guy we can all forget about now are over. Page Six had a story the other day about how Scarjo’s been spending her time as a single. Apparently she was hanging out with that gross artist Domingo who’s also friends with Lindsay Lohan. I’ll assume that that dude wouldn’t leave her alone and she wouldn’t voluntarily lower herself to some shady Lohan association. As for Sam Rockwell...

I mean who wouldn’t be attracted to Sam Rockwell...

But is it possible?

Rockwell has been dating Leslie Bibb for a long time. She showed up to the Seven Psychopaths premiere last week - in a GREAT outfit I’m sad I didn’t notice it at the time - so is it safe to assume they’re still solid ...and that Scarjo and Sam partying together was totally innocent? I hope so ...and that would require believing that Scarjo plays well with girls. Leslie Bibb doesn’t seem like she’d deal well with girls who don’t play well with girls.

So…this appeared on Instagram last night:

See, that’s the kind of gossip I’m talking about. Good Gossip.

Not that we should believe what we read on Twitter and Instagram, of course not. It’s just… a kind of random story for a random person to make up. After all, this user is not the Daily Mail. Also, there is a connection here: The Departed. Also Ben Affleck played poker with Leo’s high roller crew that included an often belligerent Tobey Maguire.

Maybe Leo thinks Matt is square. Maybe Leo thinks Matt is overrated. Maybe Leo thinks Matt is a dumbass for not picking his wife from the Victoria’s Secret catalogue. Maybe it’s all bullsh-t and this Instagram person is lying. Or, maybe, they, um, had something in common. Some similar experience and/or experimentation. Maybe one time they got drunk and shared a Cuban cigar. Maybe it’s nothing.

Anna M sent me this for analysis – Matt interviewing Leo interviewing Matt from 2006. Any clues here?

I’ve only watched up to Weekend Update but so far, Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s not freaking me out as much as he did the last time he hosted when it was much too much hyperness and he may not have blinked the entire time. Anyway, since he’s so popular, I’m assuming everyone squealed when he took his shirt off and rode his pony so I’ll attach a few of those shots.

About JGL at TIFF, and sorry it took so long to tell the story, there are two parts, unrelated:

Joe was at the Elgin for the Looper screening on opening night. Normally they keep the talent in the green room between the carpet and the introductions and the Q&A. It’s a private situation, no fans, no media, just staff, as in just the people who are there to serve them. Joe had everyone leave the room so he could eat with an assistant/agent type. No, no, of course not, it’s nothing remarkable. Just... there have been some mega mega names, names much bigger and much more notoriously high maintenance who’ve been to that theatre during the festival over the years, and, well, only JGL asked to have the room cleared.

He just wants to be left alone to eat! Leave him alone! shouts the loyal fan. Fine, hands up, backing up. But as a fan, do you find you have to spend a lot of time making excuses?

Next: I saw JGL several times during TIFF at other screenings. Also at Soho House. Where at one point, briefly, ahem, he was talking to Michael Pitt. Pitt seemed to be more engaged in their conversation. To the casual observer, JGL was the one who exited that discussion as soon as he could.

Of course it’s sad. It’s never anything but sad. Two people who wanted to be together forever don’t want that anymore. It’s always sad.

But also, when I read about the Poehler-Arnett split, two people I’ve never met but, of course, feel like I would like a lot, I get anxious. Why can awesome + awesome not = continued awesome? Twitter wanted to know this too, obviously – when the announcement came through last night, it was clear that anyone with a heart was devastated by this, of all splits.

The obvious answer to the above question, of course, is that nobody is perfect, and the best laid plans, and clichés ad nauseum, et cetera. Yes, you’ve lost one more celebrity couple you would theoretically be friends with. No, this doesn’t have any reflection on what this means for you and your partner – at least not today.

Instead, I’m wondering if this can be one of those rare but balanced situations where, professionally anyway, nobody’s the bad guy. Poehler and Arnett are equally respected comedic presences. They are part of the same large circle that winds up in fun projects and side efforts together. They are, of course, on the same network.

Can this be one of those amicable splits like Sarah Silverman and Jimmy Kimmel, who appear, outwardly, to be super-fine with running into the other person all the time? Awards shows and benefits? How do you map out the “safe zones” of an industry you share so closely? Does David Letterman have to pick a side? I suspect there are a whole lot of friends in common here. So will there be a split down the middle? A time-sharing program? Canadians to the left? Or is that all just a bit too civil, for even the objectively awesome?

It’s very sad.

http://www.laineygossip.com/Ben-Affleck-banned-from-blackjack-at-the-Hard-Rock-in-Vegas-for-counting-cards/30127

Oh the Ups and Downs of gambling…

Ahem.

AHEM.

I mean, if that wasn’t obvious enough. And if it was obvious, you should not be surprised about what happened to Ben Affleck in Vegas last week. He was at the Hard Rock playing blackjack, allegedly counting cards. The casino busted him and has reportedly banned him from gaming. Counting cards is not technically illegal but it’s definitely not condoned. If he wasn’t Ben Affleck, movie star and director, he would have had his ass beat in an alley. Now the media outlets are following up with stories about why he got caught. It’s because he’s “too good”. Like there’s some way to spin a positive out of this.

There is no positive.

But there are certainly triggers.

Affleck was apparently there to spend a “romantic getaway” with his wife Jennifer Garner before he begins shooting Batman vs Superman in Detroit. In Vegas? I go to Vegas all the time. AND I gamble in Vegas all the time. It’s not romantic. In fact, it’s the opposite. We don’t talk to each other when I’m gambling. That time is all for me.

You know who understands this really well?

Jennifer Lopez.

This was one of the problems between them. This has been one of Ben’s problems, always.

It’s the rush.

It’s the rush of gambling. The ups and downs of gambling. It’s the rush of…other things. The ups and downs of other things. Again, those triggers. For a dude who’s been to rehab (why is it that people always forget about this?), certain habits go together, side by side.

"Ben makes life tough for himself. He's got a lot of complication, and you know, he really is a great guy. So I hope he sorts himself out."

Pop Gossip Quiz – who said that?

It was Gwyneth Paltrow. And she was exactly right. Affleck is his own worst enemy, susceptible to everything that’s “MORE” and dangerous about fame and Hollywood. It wasn’t enough directing an Oscar-winning picture. He had to become a successful superhero to make up for Daredevil and he desperately wants recognition for acting. It’s not enough, family stability and industry respect. So we find ourselves back in that Affleck cycle. A comeback and a summit followed a drop. Rock bottom? And then he gets to start all over.

Finally I leave you with this, one of my favourite shots of all time from the era of Bennifer. Look at her face!

Is your back OK?

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner went for back massages together yesterday. Maybe not Ben’s most attractive sighting. Check the way he’s getting out the car. That’s a pretty un-sexy dismount, right there. It’s a half squat. With turned out feet. Yeah, not sexy. And what happens when he bends down isn’t cute either. But you can hardly blame him. Look, he appears to be experiencing some discomfort, back pain.

Oh, well, did he hurt his back?

If so, what do you think he’s taking for it? Just Robax, I’m sure, ahem. Nothing stronger, hell no, f-ck no.

Henry Cavill’s already been in Chicago a couple of weeks getting ready to start on Batman vs Superman. Um, right now it doesn’t look like much of a fight. But Sarah and I were talking about this last night over dinner: it’s like…Ben Affleck just can’t get over Daredevil. And in his desperation to try to make up for it, I don’t know if he’s going for the right choices. Besides, doesn’t DIRECTING AND PRODUCING AN OSCAR-winning movie even the score. No, actually. And never.

They’ll always want more and …ALL of it.

Gone Girl is one of the most highly anticipated movies of the season. Maybe THE most highly anticipated movie of the season. And, if you've read the book, all of it rests on Amy. Amazing Amy. Missing Amy. Mysterious Amy. Duplicitous Amy. So, Rosamund Pike has to be everything. And if she is, she'll be a revelation to people.

"Mother Issues" reveal 2

http://www.laineygossip.com/Kristen-Stewart-and-Robert-Pattinson-break-up-and-game-on/26960

Hey Lainey,

please tell us what's going on with Rob and Kristen. Nothing makes sense for us. We have that theory that they're both moving back to Rob's house because her's on sale since January. And since there was construction work at Rob's house since last summer, which is now finished, we thought that was maybe the reason why they bought Kristen's house in the first place and are now selling it, so they can move back to Rob's house. Does that sound crazy? Maybe you're in contact with some people close to them who talk to you or maybe even their reps but we're miserable because of them. We don't want them to hurt and to go through that media sh-t storm again.
I hope, you can help us and tell us more soon.

Thank you,
Anna

“Nothing makes sense for us.” Just an idea of what my inbox has looked like the last few days. So much anxiety. A lot of grief. A lot of grasping. At anything, any explanation, so as to avoid making sense: the simple explanation is that, well, how likely is it that a relationship that starts at 19 will last forever? The chances aren’t great, even for those who aren’t famous. You add fame to that equation and it reduces the odds exponentially.

As for the complicated explanation...

Well, it depends whose side you’re on.

PEOPLE broke the story on Saturday that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson had broken up... “for now”, leaving the door open for a reconciliation. US WEEKLY soon followed, also with a report that the two had split, also perhaps just temporarily. Then everyone else jumped on it. Not even Gossip Cop, normally so quick to publish a publicist’s contradiction, could manage a denial.

Pattinson was photographed driving a pick-up full of suitcases and clothes in trash bags away from Stewart’s home on Sunday. Click here to see the photos. He had two dogs with him, leading to further speculation that Robsten did indeed break, and that he ended up with custody of their pets.

PEOPLE seems to have taken a pro-Pattinson position. In a story posted yesterday, sources tell the magazine that he was observed to be “in a really good mood” on Monday, hanging out with friends at Teddy’s (how old school), flirting with a brunette, although they were quick to point out that he never touched her, but subtly suggested that he appeared relieved to be free of Stewart’s “terrible mood”, particularly in the days preceding the split. The Pattinson strategy then is to portray him as a man free now from his dark cloud, appealing to those who’ve always hated the fact that he was with Stewart and stayed with her after her indiscretion.

US Weekly on the other hand seems to somewhere between neutral and pro-Stewart. They reported yesterday that Stewart spent all of Monday at Taylor Swift’s, a detail that could only have come from her team, as photographers were conveniently around to shoot a smiling Stewart riding around in a friend’s car, with the follow-up confirmation as to where she was heading posted by US on its website the next day, well after PEOPLE had gone to print. Photographers also took pictures of Stewart out for dinner that night, the same night Pattinson was supposedly enjoying himself at Teddy’s, and she too was described to be “in a good mood”. It’s a good strategy for Stewart: she’s fine, she’s not crying herself to sleep, she’s not weak and clingy and begging for him to take her back.

But whereas US Weekly initially concurred with PEOPLE on the possibility of the two getting together, their cover article now portends a more permanent split:

“The tempestuous couple have split before — “they’re like seventh-graders,” says a source — but, this time, the breakup is sticking. Adding to the finality: They have said goodbye to their Edward and Bella roles after four films. “Usually they would have a Twilight film to bring them back together,” says the pal. Outside of the Twilight bubble, it seems they don’t stand a chance. “They both have projects that will take them away from each other for months,” adds the pal. “If he can’t trust her, it’s impossible.”

Here’s where US Weekly has more detail over PEOPLE. According to US Weekly, Pattinson cannot get over what happened last summer. And he’s been punishing Stewart ever since, even though she’s done her best to convince him that it will never happen again. US details Stewart’s behaviour over the last few months -- she would stay close to his friends when he was filming in Australia, making sure he knew that she was with people he trusted, “endlessly auditioning for the role of Good Girlfriend”. Sources tell US Weekly that he, on the other hand, would deliberately not take her calls, make her sweat, play with her mind.

Game on then, right? Game on. And it’s about time. Team Stewart’s handling of the situation immediately after she was caught with Rupert Sanders last year was piss poor. And that whimpering apology only set her up to be weak, at everyone’s mercy. This time she’s taking a stronger approach, not so apologetic, more Jolie than Aniston. Good. Because it’s not like he’s not working it either. His advantage, obviously, is that he’s pretty and he’s managed to keep his own sh-t locked down.

As both are playing the media to their respective advantages, it then becomes what version of the situation they want to share. Each faction has a different perspective.

Those close to Pattinson tell me that there are some sh-tty influences in her life and that she has poor judgment when it comes to her family and friends. She’s had some family pressures. And she was a child star. Though she may not have f-cked up as spectacularly as some of her child star peers, it doesn’t change the fact that she’s been working steadily for years. Some say she’s “exhausted”, “tapped out”, and is just ready to kick it and have some fun for a while. Live the kind “college” life that she missed while she was on set so much. Lindsay Lohan said the same thing. Her college years have eaten up almost an entire decade. Stewart is much less destructive but Team Pattinson claims that he’s been frustrated with her lack of motivation. Her talent is what he has always loved most, what he’s always been attracted to, and he sees her as the best of her generation, and supposedly considers it a turnoff that she doesn’t seem to be using it. That’s his side.

Her side maintains that she always gets the worst of it between them, even though he isn’t the sensitive, gentle boy he’s been sold to be. He too has friends who can’t be trusted, who prefer to spend more time on the old Hollywood Ebola Paris Hilton circuit. So they’re saying he parties too much, and his people claim that she parties too much. There’s also the question of commitment. When Pattinson was filming Cosmopolis in Toronto, there were always stories that he was stepping out on Stewart. Not with Caitlin Cronenberg but with local randoms. Since so much noise surrounds Stewart and Pattinson, those who kept hearing this business weren’t entirely convinced. And besides, no one wanted to f-ck around with a Canadian powerhouse’s production. The encounters were always the same though -- he allegedly would insist that he and Stewart had an open relationship, so it was rather rich when he was portrayed as a victim when Stewart was found to be cheating with Rupert Sanders. The things that made Stewart unhappy, that may have led to her infidelity, were never addressed. And now that they've had some distance from the scandal, they've come up again and couldn't be ignored.

Drama.

As for whether or not this is it, or if it'll be a clean cut, it's more like a long breakup that started a long time ago. Kinda like Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber. That might be the worst part of it for Twi-Hards now. That Robsten has become Jelena.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s Pussy Posse has an official new member. Now that Paula Patton has filed for divorce, Robin Thicke is available for group douche-ing. And according to Page Six, he celebrated the other night at his home in LA, with Leonardo DiCaprio and a LOT of models. According to a Page Six source:

“There were a lot of models there. Leo and Robin were being super flirtatious and talking to tons of girls. Robin, in particular, was dancing and talking to a pretty brunette throughout most of the night. At one point, he grabbed a girl’s hand and was like, ‘Let’s dance’ . . . he was in great spirits, and put on a mix of music including pop, hip-hop, older stuff from the ’90s and soul. Everyone was dancing until past 3 a.m.”

Robin Thicke or Adam Levine. Sh-t or Diarrhoea.

Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace were at an event in London together last week. I posted those photos but I’m re-attaching them again here because, well, we’re looking at them differently now. They’ve been working together on a movie. They’ve already worked together on other projects. They’ve known each other for a while. It didn’t seem super unusual.

But the Telegraph is reporting that something is, indeed, up. That Tom and Noomi were “cuddling” at that party and went home together because, as it turns out, he and Charlotte Riley, his fiancé, or ex, are currently “on hold”.

On hold?

If I’m Charlotte and I’m looking at these pictures, there’s really no more holding. The last time I posted pictures of Tom and Charlotte together was in December, here. Tom has said of himself in the past that he tends to let one relationship bleed into the next. Has it happened again?

Theirs is known as one of the most solid show business marriages. Both of them are talented. Both of them work steadily. Both are well-respected. Both can be rather high-brow though they’ve tried at blockbusters and secretly aspire to big movie status without the big movie star lifestyle though, seeing as they do try to live under the radar. Which works for him because he steps out on her all the time. Sometimes it’s with civilians. One time it was with a young actress with mesmerising eyes and the hair of an angel. It was dirty and undercover, just like their subject matter.

So when you see him in movies, and he always plays the skeevy older creep? It’s not exactly a stretch.

Lindsay Lohan infects Kristen Stewart

But first she’ll hit her up for some cash money. Because that’s how it works, you know that by now, don’t you?

When you hang out with Lindsay Lohan, she will hit you up for cash money. Her latest target is apparently Kristen Stewart who isn’t unfamiliar with being hit up for cash money these days. Oh but Lohan’s probably been sniffing around there for a long time now. According to Page Six somehow someone let her in. Apparently Lohan was invited to Stewart’s through a mutual friend last week to hang out with Robert Pattinson and the two girls “found they had a lot in common: “Lindsay and Kristen discussed their careers, creative ideas and how they deal with living under the focus of the media and the paparazzi.”

If true? That’s a really, really dumb decision. It might even be a dumber decision than hooking up with Rupert Sanders. Because that sh-t will not leave you alone. That sh-t will find a way to let people know -- thank you Page Six “source” -- and even if you realise and cut her off, it may be too late. She may have iPhoned a photo that she can sell, or even a video, or ...

Has Kristen Stewart checked her jewellery drawer? Lohan doesn’t usually leave a home without lifting a ring or a necklace. This is her idea of being a good guest, like inviting her comes with an implied understanding that if you don’t lock up your belongings or secure them elsewhere, she has a right to leave with whatever she wants tucked inside her handbag.

I used to say it of Ebola Paris Hilton -- a virus you cannot fix or kill. The same now applies to Lindsay Lohan. You associate with it, just once, just in passing, and the consequences can be SEVERE. Example?

Last month Ashley Greene was caught with Lohan at an event in New York. Click here for a refresher. Um, Ashley Greene’s home just burned down. Coincidence or conspiracy?

If I’m a Kristen Stewart super-fan, I’m hoping for a swift denial. You remember how I totally disagreed with her ridiculous public apology following the cheating incident last summer? Now’s the time to come out with an all caps, in bold, written statement categorically denying ANY involvement with that loser Lindsay Lohan. No good can come from being connected to Lindsay Lohan and if you have been connected to her erroneously, you need to shut that down immediately. Distance immediately.

This broke yesterday and I smutty tingled to it but now there are proper pap photos taken the night before the Emmys of the two of them together after dinner and, well, I’ve never been more interested in Seth MacFarlane than I am now, I guess, but...

Seth MacFarlane and the Khaleesi?

Did you know that Seth MacFarlane used to deal with Amanda Bynes? And Audrina Patridge? And maybe Ashley Greene? That’s a lot of moons of his life.

So how long has this been happening? Well, my producer Caleigh found this photo today of Emilia and Seth (with Theon Greyjoy and Ygritte) at a Comic-Con party in July so... has it been that long? PEOPLE reports that they hit up all the Emmys parties together and when he put his arm around her (frequently), she did not pull away in disgust.

Doing it through the underwear hole

http://www.laineygossip.com/Miley-Cyruss-performance-at-the-VMAs-2013/27854

What is she supposed to do?

Honestly, what is Miley Cyrus supposed to do? She has a compulsion right now to prove not just that she’s not a little girl, but that she is down with the dudes. She gets it. She gets the jokes, nothing can faze her. She is not going to be shocked or appalled or coaxed into blushing, Goddammit, or even finding a line she won’t cross. There is no line. You know why? Because Miley Cyrus is not like those other girls, and you are going to KNOW it.

So the tongue flaps out of the mouth – three times in the first seconds of the performance -  and the roles get swapped, and suddenly Miley isn’t just swearing that she can’t stop, she’s gyrating and twerking because furries are the grossest and therefore best things she’s ever heard of, and there’s a foam finger with which to violate Robin Thicke, and whatever she thinks she’s doing to him, she knows the words for it -  there are no words for any sex act that Miley doesn’t know, okay? She knows them and can say them and will simulate them on the VMAs because she’s not the girl you might have thought she was, all right? Do you get it? And there’s nothing she won’t do for the sake of the show.


Which sucks, and seems so pedestrian and 20-years-old of her. But what kills me is how few other options there are. Barely any women performed tonight. Those who did mainly did so in reasonable facsimiles of underwear. Miley isn’t newly single and ready to take on the world while being capital C Classy, like Selena and Taylor in their weirdly demure dresses, and she isn’t worthy of being cut to after every other person approaches, like Rihanna, because you never know with Rihanna.

Miley is struggling to stay relevant in a weird show that really didn’t want her, where, as Lainey pointed out,  Justin Timberlake got 20 minutes and everyone else just had to like being in his presence.

The only other option for being a woman at the VMAs is being a screaming fan, a delighted lucky girl, a nameless faceless “good girl” in Blurred Lines or the one who tells Bruno Mars “Daddy, It’s Yours”. (Seriously, read these lyrics – are you blushing?) Hell, even Jennifer Hudson showed up for mere seconds – and she got to perform, which is more than I can say for TLC.

So I feel like Miley was bound and determined to write her own script and not just be a pretty fangirl and not just a “good girl” who secretly likes to be talked into sex, and what came out was…what we saw. It just makes me sad because I think she thinks she’s doing something other than what she’s doing, which is…still playing right into it.

It doesn’t help that she’s not a live performer. Neither a dancer nor a live singer.   She can’t be Pink up on a ropes course. But I hope she finds something because I appreciate the sentiment, even as I acknowledge how she missed her target by a wide, wide mile.

*Sometimes here at LaineyGossip we send in our requests for photos and other media to be used with the articles we write, but in this case the question is obviously not what, but where.

Dear Gossips,

Oscar weekend is here! Will it be a Brange weekend too?

Both Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are confirmed as presenters on Sunday night. Mostly likely they were present individually. BUT…if they do take the stage together, come on, that becomes the moment, doesn’t it?

Jennifer Garner is on the presenters list too because of Dallas Buyers Club. Interestingly, Ben Affleck is not, even though his film Argo is the reigning Best Picture. You’ll recall however that Affleck did not take an individual award (ahem, he wasn’t nominated for Best Director – clue!) so I guess having him returning in an official capacity wasn’t an automatic. Still… does he just not show up at all?

But for all our talk of dress porn and who we might be falling over for, there is a dark horse that no one’s been paying attention: Penelope Cruz. She’s presenting. She’s kept a very low profile since the birth of her daughter. I can’t wait to see what she’s wearing. And if it’s a feathered skirt, I promise you will hear me rage.

Miley unfollows Liam

By today’s relationship standards, this is major. Like giving back a varsity jacket.

Liam Hemsworth uses Twitter sparingly. Miley Cyrus, as you know, uses Twitter only. So she’d know that we’d know that she unfollowed Liam. She came in like a wrecking ball and all he ever did was wre-eh-eh-ck her.

Is it finally over?

It should have been over a few months ago when January Jones straddled him at a house party during Oscar weekend. But as much as she sticks out her tongue and fronts like she’s a tough girl now, Miley couldn’t quite let go. Kind of like a metaphor for her old image. If she wasn’t ready to kill the dreams of Hannah Montana then, she may be there now, six months later, buoyed by the success of her two smash hit singles and embracing the controversy that has followed her since.

Still, no matter what your feelings on the “new” Miley, the one holding the foam finger at the VMAs, or singing naked from a chain, please don’t come here and put this on her, absolving him of any responsibility in the slow death of this relationship. He didn’t have to grind back on January Jones. Or make Emma Watson feel like the only girl in the world.

And again, can love at 18 survive the 20s? It’s too much to ask of yourself, let alone another person. In one short year, Miley’s gone from child star in transition to having actually transitioned into a proper pop star, like it or not. Professionally, she’s just had a VERY big summer. Him? That movie career’s not doing much. So… maybe sitting beside Ashley Greene is probably where he belongs right now.

http://www.laineygossip.com/Selena-Gomez-hold-hands-Luke-Bracey-after-Justin-Bieber-breakup/25724

t was a drawn-out breakup, as breakups can be, especially at their age. Finally though, after a very rough holiday in Mexico, during which, I hear, they argued so dramatically that they were throwing things at each other and finally ended up requesting to move into separate apartments, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are done. And, as girls do when they break up, Selena is spending time with her friends, swinging her hair around, flirting with cute boys and holding their hands. According to US Weekly she was holding hands with a boy called Luke Bracey with whom she worked on Monte Carlo. Here’s Luke last year at The Hunger Games Australian premiere and before that at another event and, other than the fact that I think he might have a shoe problem, as you can see, this is not bad at all as a starter revenge date, although poor Luke, as attractive as he is, isn’t exactly the male equivalent of a Victoria’s Secret model.

Still, if we’re playing tit for tat and aiming for the ego, even though Bracey’s name recognition is embarrassingly negligible compared to Justin Bieber, “I’m more rich and famous and I f-ck supermodels” might not be enough to drown out the inches. Bieber badly wants to grow -- height and width and facial hair -- and when you consider the maturity level of an 18 year old, you know that can’t be going down smoothly, Bracey’s advantage in that area. A kid with Bieber’s entitlement complex is usually quick to jealousy. That his ex-girlfriend might be getting over him with a blonde Aussie surfer boy with big muscles and goatee must be making him crazy. This will, hopefully, lead to Good Gossip. On Instagram. A photo taken at Miranda Kerr’s or something. What? She’s a really good listener. And maybe she bakes?

Any time Julia Roberts is there, hers in the best table, OK? This is the rule and it’s sacred. And when she’s seated next to Leonardo DiCaprio? Please. There’s no argument here. You won’t win this argument.

How can you win this argument when she has her glasses on, probably lecturing him about something, or laughing about Jennifer Lopez’s waiter-bear, as her husband sits mute on the other side? And then there’s her dress. She barely bothered, you know? She doesn’t think she has to bother anymore because she’s Julia Roberts. She’s Julia Roberts so, naturally, she gets to present the most important award of the night. And, you’ll note, she only presents to her friends. This after all is the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. They probably assured her of it beforehand. Yes, Julia, you’ll be presenting to your friend, George Clooney. And you can spend the rest of the night nattering at Leo about why he only dates Victoria’s Secret models. What? You don’t think she would? She would. And he couldn’t say sh-t back to her.

Otherwise, Leo was practically invisible the whole night. By the way, not that this is, ahem, related or anything, but does anyone know why Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr showed up? It’s a little embarrassing. As far as I know, he wasn’t connected to any of the films at all. So where do you seat him? Certainly not close to the front. The young wife wants to go out and party and he has to supervise. The young wife might be looking at all those more successful faces up near the stage, and wondering who’ll help her sit up there next time.

Justin Timberlake’s homeless wedding gift

It’s Pippy Day on LaineyGossip.com! Just what he wanted!

I posted a blind riddle yesterday -- click here if you missed it. Gawker has the video. The video is exactly how I described it. Homeless people taped AS A JOKE wishing Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel a happy wedding...you know, because they couldn’t make it.

The video was produced by Justin Huchel who is also close to Rachael Yarbrough who is Pippy’s cousin and apparently his personal assistant.

ALL CLASS, motherf-ckers. That is ALL CLASS.

I noted in the blind that I wasn’t sure if the video ended up getting played at the wedding.

Gawker confirms that it was.

They laughed at a disadvantaged segment of society to celebrate their marriage.

HILARIOUS!!!

Isn’t it SO FUNNY to see people struggling and without teeth and probably smelly and definitely hungry presented as the butt of the joke?

Don’t you want to toast to that?

Of course Huchel is now trying to save JT’s ass. His lawyer sent a letter to Gawker threatening a lawsuit and clarifying that:

"Mr. Huchel made [the] video to be used and exhibited privately at Justin Timberlake's wedding as a private joke without Mr. Timberlake's knowledge."

I’m willing to believe that JT had no idea about the video. But I’m not sure he would have been offended by the video -- which is the ONLY APPROPRIATE reaction. And here’s the thing ...

Wouldn’t your friend and YOUR COUSIN who also works for you know you well enough not to show something so disgusting if you wouldn’t appreciate it? Is Justin Huchel, one of JT’s closest confidantes, so off base about his boy that he totally miscalculated on his own? Or... did Justin Huchel know exactly what to do to amuse his friend?

What a pleasant way to kick off a marriage, non?

By sh-tting on homeless people, kicking down those less fortunate, as you jump up and down on your bride’s head on the cover of a magazine during your SIX MILLION DOLLAR wedding.

Congratulations!

Click here to watch the video -- over 8 minutes of entertainment at the expense of the poor.

It’s Gonna Be Me

Is my favourite N Sync song. What? I love it. I totally Wayne Robsoned it back in the day, OK? For some reason it was the lyric that came to mind reading this story -- that Justin Timberlake only invited 2 of the other 4 members of N Sync to his wedding. JC Chasez and Chris Kirkpatrick were allowed to come if they wanted to. Joey Fatone and Lance Bass were banned.

US Weekly reports exclusively that Pips didn’t want his wedding to turn into a reunion (of course not; if the bride was hardly involved, why would his ex-colleagues be?) and that he hates Lance now.

“It’s gonna be me” is the only line Lance has to his own in the song. Poor Lance.

But whyyyyyyy???

I’m hearing that it has to do with Dancing With The Stars. Rumour has it he was embarrassed by Lance and Joey being on the show. Supposedly he considered it low classy. Pretty sure when it comes to low classy, JT has some other friends who could take it a lot lower. Should we give him some N Sync today in honour of this big pink wedding pictures? You know he would love that, especially since he refused to have any N Sync music played at his wedding.

I’m trying to bank some goodwill with you so here’s the second blind in two days. You’ll understand tomorrow.

Motherhood hasn’t slowed her down. Not professionally and definitely not when she parties. I mean, some people can use recreationally and it doesn’t become a problem. Maybe that’s why she feels she can do it so openly. For her, she doesn’t act like it’s something she has to hide. Because she was recently hanging out in a hotel, with some friends and a few strangers, and she snorted a few lines, no paranoia, no worries about the fact that while these people certainly knew her, she definitely didn’t know them. This surprised me because she’s never been that girl who’s had drug culture association through her career. She’s not a fixture on the standard party circuit. She doesn’t roll with an LA crowd of club rats. But see? The Celebrity Ecosystem can still f-ck up your sh-t. Anyway, the kid is still small so we’ll give her the benefit of the doubt that she’s not breastfeeding anymore? That’s where it gets kinda sketchy.

http://www.laineygossip.com/Scarlett-Johansson-to-star-in-The-Psychopath-Test/37646

Scarlett Johansson’s career re-direct over the last several years is impressive. She’s become one of the very few actresses who can open an action movie, she’s retained her artistic indie cred, she’s doing the motherhood thing without turning it into a career move, and she has become rather exclusive in her public appearances, so that when she does show up somewhere, it feels like kind of a big deal. I mean, Lainey was just wondering if she would even walk the red carpet at the Oscars this weekend, because it’s no longer something she HAS to do. I wonder if this is why she’s not campaigning for an Oscar—it’s pretty much all she has left to attain, and she’s just 30. She could have mounted an effort for her extremely worthy performance in Under the Skin last year, but she didn’t, and it felt deliberate. Like an “I don’t need this right now” statement.

Scarjo’s working at a steady clip, too, averaging 2-3 major projects a year. I’m not excited about her live-action Ghost in the Shell remake, but yesterday Deadline reported that she will star in an adaptation of Jon Ronson’s The Psychopath Test, about the efforts to diagnose actual psychopaths, and how hard that can really be to do. ScarJo will play the lead in the adaptation, but it’s not clear what kind of part that will be. I hope she’s playing a (potential) psychopath, though. Amazing Amy is so much more interesting than Blonde Doctor #1.

Scarlett Johansson surprised everyone with an unannounced appearance at the Vice 20 party in Brooklyn over the weekend. She wasn’t on the lineup, but Jonah Hill was…

…and he sang a cover of Drake’s track Marvin’s Room…

But Scarjo?

Rocked the mic with who else but Ghostface Killah. Yes, really.

She sang New Order’s Bizarre Love Triangle. This isn’t new, the singing. She recorded an album of Tom Waits covers before she was 24. Except, now she’s 30, and rocking out at the Vice show. And the only “brand” cooler than that party is Scarlett herself.

Here she is, all chill and sexy, swinging around her leather bomber jacket:

And wearing her signature smirk while posing with Spike Jonze:

Badass.

Yes, this is clearly the same Scarlett who kept her wedding under wraps, and is doing some awards season shilling for her friend Eddie Redmayne. Except… What she’s really doing is building the buzz. What’s next? Scarjo’s about to start shooting Hail, Caesar! with Clooney and Channing. Without having to trade on the “mom” identity.

Before it happened, his friends were begging him not to do it. Begging him not to make it permanent. But he was in too deep, and a little wounded too after his most recent professional setback. So it happened. Despite all the warnings, he went ahead and made it official.

But the happily ever after wore off really quickly. It wore off a long time ago. Which is why while he’s working, he’s also hiding. Of course he could stay in luxe accommodations all to himself. Instead of sleeping in a hotel suite that they most certainly have the budget for though, he’s on his buddy’s couch. His best buddy. The one you’d think would approve of his relationship. But even his best friend thinks his girl is crazy. And understands why he’s decided to hide out, where it’s not so easy for her to find him. Which, apparently, happens all the time. She’s obsessive about calling around, looking for him, haranguing anyone she can to ask where he is, what he’s doing, why he hasn’t texted her back. Two sources confirmed to me that she’s been delayed on set a few times because she’s been shouting down the phone at someone in her trailer, demanding they track him down for her. And so, at a time when they’re supposed to be celebrating, he’s far away, enjoying his freedom for a few weeks. Is this what it’s going to be for a lifetime?

Serious actor with a more serious actor friend, even though their friendship isn’t as public as some of the others. No pictures, but still, their names will appear together on party reports, and it’s always the kind of parties that feature douchebags leering at young models. They’ve come together again on a new project, working away on location. While on location, away from the media, away from the paparazzi, one influences the other. Which would be fine, because that’s his lifestyle, famously it’s his lifestyle, but his friend happens to be married. And it’s not his wife he’s taking back to his hotel room every night. The side piece works at the casino and that’s probably not a good place to be around for someone with his history. You just replace one addiction with the other.

This isn’t the first time we’ve run into some out of bounds play with him though. All of us were wondering if he’d paused on his long term relationship a couple of years ago with another co-star. That ended up fading, he got married, and now…well… now he has a temporary waiting in bed for him until he gets to go home.

She’s an actress whose time has come, the performance of her career. Except… no one seems to be all that happy for her, and certainly not those who’ve worked with her, especially the actor who worked with her on this particular film. He keeps telling people that she’s that good because she’s actually that horrible – cold, mean, unforgiving, not generous. Which is why you hardly ever saw them promoting together. It was evident on the press circuit initially too… but the excuse then, or the one people kept giving her, was hormones. She was a bitch about her interview camera angles. She was constantly unpleasant, impatient, and dismissive. And this, apparently, is her natural state.

The key to her illustrious career? Talent, of course. But also, she’s always been a professional. She’s never been difficult, she’s never been a drama queen, she always works hard, she’s always prepared. That’s also been the secret to her successful relationship. It’s an open marriage and it’s a solid marriage… because she’s a professional at protecting it.

She’s careful about who she sleeps with, directors and other actors she knows she can trust. And it’s all discussed, very professionally, before it starts. She dictates the terms of the arrangement. She’s very clear about exactly how it will go down – that there will be no commitment, that they enjoy each other privately when they are working together, and if she believes they can meet her requirements, it’s on. “Professional” was the word that kept repeating itself when my sources explained how she goes about her affairs. She’s always, always so “professional” about these hookups. Like the most efficient business deal.

Sometimes the men are younger. Sometimes they’re her contemporaries. Like the charmingly sexy actor who played her husband recently, especially now that he’s no longer committed. And they never tell because, well, being professional about it is probably the only way they can imagine doing anything as well as she does. She’s practically the best at her job, why wouldn’t she be the best at being discreet?

His attraction for her is understandable. Her attraction for him? Not all that clear, really. Unless size really does matter? For me, no. Size can be uncomfortable. For her, clearly a selling feature. Because she's been going around telling her friends about it. And her nickname for him, which she hasn't been shy about sharing, is "Monster Cock". Which is flattering, I guess, if you're in college or Vegas. But it's probably a little immature and maybe even a little disrespectful, all things considered.

Notes on a love triangle

http://www.laineygossip.com/Notes-on-a-love-triangle-blind-riddle/31393

She started out as a song girl, then acted, keeps trying to do both. At the beginning it was promising but mostly, over the last few years, it’s been a series of disappointments. Personally though, she seemed to have it together. A steady relationship, a solid commitment, no drama…

Or maybe it’s because we weren’t paying attention.

She and her playing partner have been having problems for a while. They’ve been trying hard to work it out. But that might not turn out so well if she finds out that he hooked up with a much more successful song girl, someone with a similar early sound and origin, though that’s evolving now. Despite her many changes, contrived or organic, this was probably not the intended image.

It’s an hour to fly from Toronto to New York. By the time you go up, it’s almost like you have to go down again.

But she was desperate, desperate for a drink. Even before take-off. Which was not allowed on this flight. She was told she’d have to wait. And she didn’t want to wait. Caused a stink about having to wait. Huffing and puffing, sweet features morphed into an off-putting bitch scowl. It was a scene. And she didn’t stop bitching until they put the first jack and coke in front of her once the seatbelt sign had been turned off.

That was followed by two more. Three jack and cokes on the flight.

So, maybe she’s afraid to fly. Maybe it was a terrible day. But with her history, and it wasn’t all that long ago, and the sh-tty influences she has around her, this is probably a concern, non?

But he’s been partying for a long time, somehow he manages to make the bare minimum at work. So when they hooked up, she just kinda fell into that lifestyle. It’s not like she has to worry about money. And it’s not like she has the kind of job where anyone’s waiting on her to show up either. She’s already a boss as it is and then there will always be a mirror to hold her up.

She’s a girl who gets what she wants, sometimes much to our surprise, especially when it comes to romance. But you can’t game your way to a baby. And right now, she really, really wants a baby. She’s young. She’s healthy. She’s resourceful. In her mind, it should have happened by now. But, as of six weeks ago, she wasn’t pregnant. So this is her only conversation. She’s been asking for tips. She’s been asking almost everyone she talks to for tips – how did you get pregnant, what were you eating, what were you drinking, what position, what time of the month, what time of the day, etc, etc, etc…

And ordinarily, for people who find themselves in this situation, there’s a lot of sympathy, a lot of goodwill. Because, as Sasha answered earlier this year, no one wants to see someone struggling to start a family.

In her case however…

Well…

She’s not as popular as you might think she is. I mean, maybe among the privileged and the elite, but to those who have to work with her, or for her, she’s not as sweet and perfect as we’ve been led to believe. Everyone’s schedule has to accommodate her schedule. Every schedule has to change at the last minute for her schedule, ironically even if others have children of their own to manage and to look after. One source even said to me, “Why should I have to rearrange my kids’ daycare because she’s ovulating?”

On other projects, she’s not great at taking feedback. When someone disagrees with her, she tells them to their face that she’s reconsidering their job status. When it turns out that they were right to begin with, she’s the type to blame them for not being assertive enough. Some of her staff members have joked that it’s an initiation ritual to have her hang up on them. And she’s also really sh-tty about overtime. If someone’s been working out of their mind to make her unrealistic deadlines, she’ll then question them about how much pay she’s owed to them in return, either suggesting that they’re lying about how hard they worked, or implying that they might not be cut out for it since it took them so long to get it done.

Loyalty is starting to become a problem. Because if they’re not loyal, not only will they not stay, they’ll also start talking. They’ve started talking already.

He’s had his problems over the last year. He’s found himself in some sh-tty situations because of it. Why the darkness? It was stress. The stress of feeling that he can’t come out publicly.

Lately though…there’s been a turnaround. Career is in good shape. And there’s someone new in his life. What’s she doing for him? They get along well. They both party…HARD. But she’s not his lover, she’s his front. Because when she’s around, he can hook up with men. And she’s happy to cover for him. She’s playing her part so that no one’s looking at what’s really going on – which is that he’s been messing around with a wealthy older man who spoils him…with sex and drugs.

So the stress is gone. But not the habits.

She’s great at giving big smiles, pretending her personality is as sweet as her voice. It depends. If she’s talking to Ellen DeGeneres, well, of course she’s lovely and accommodating. But what if it’s a child in a wheelchair?

There was a kid who had a wish. The wish was to meet her favourite star. So they made arrangements for it to happen at an event earlier this year where the star was promoting her show. They set up the wheelchair at the end of the red carpet, everyone had been informed, and then, when it came time for the moment, as soon as they started introducing her to her young fan, she cut off the handler, said, “NO”, and then walked away…even though the family had specifically flown there for the opportunity.

She has ONE advocate. One. And that’s only because he made her. But since he’s caring less and less about that particular project, when that’s done, she won’t have any supporters left. Because no one can f-cking stand her.
