Rumored to be newly-single Ashley Olsen looks like a lost puppy in these pics of her at LAX. Can someone help this girl with her enormous bag, for the love of God? Can't you just see her teetering around on those ridiculous heels just trying to keep herself on two feet while balancing her purses and trying to make sure her hobo chic cashmere blanket dress thing doesn't hobo fall off?
Or is that just me? Right. Moving on.
Last summer you might remember a little altercation that went down at Bungalow 8 when Stephen Dorff cut in front of Jeremy Piven at the loo. If you don't, that's probably a sign of your good character but I will fill you in. Before expletives were exchanged and security guards were called Jeremy called Stephen a has-been, to which the Blade star replied: "At least I am a movie star - you're only on TV! Cable TV!"
Now, however it seems Stephen will have to eat his words as he's made a deal to play the lead in the new CBS pilot Skip Tracer. In the show his character will track down missing people in LA. Not sure how this is different from Without a Trace except for the location but whatever. Stephen Dorff may have a reputation for being kind of a jerk but he's cute so we'll give it a chance.
Ashlee Simpson 2.0 still totally catches me off guard sometimes, but I swear, this is one and the same as the little faux-punk girl that stole our (okay, my) heart singing that craptastic Autobiography song (okay, I don't hate that song) just a few short years ago. I'm not sure what Ashlee is doing in terms of "work" these days, but she looks mightly thrilled to be followed around while shopping this weekend.

Tobey is hard at work on Spider-Man 3, resuming his role as the lovable and geekalicious Peter Parker/heroic Spider-Man. We were so bummed last year when Tobey announced that he was planning to hang up his Spidey suit for good after the third installment, but don't lose all hope yet. Lucky for us Columbia Pictures execs are negotiating with writer David Koepp to pen the fourth installment of the franchise.
They are just in the beginning of the process, however, and for it all to come together they would have to negotiate new contracts with Tobey, Kirsten, and James Franco. Tobey and Kirsten have already said they're keen to ditch the movie, but without the two main actors, it just wouldn't be the same. Just imagine how the Spidey fans will stand up and revolt - or at least blog and complain about it a lot on message boards. Believe me, it wouldn't be pretty. In the meantime, for more pics of Tobey on the set just read more
Kingston must be one of the luckiest kids in the world. He's got famous parents, an awesome wardrobe, and gets to have playdates with Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt! Plus did I mention he's really, really cute? That too. His mom is a pretty lucky lady as well. In her latest interview with British Elle she reflects on her blessings, auditioning for Angelina's role in Mr & Mrs. Smith, and playdates with Shiloh. Here's more:
- On being down-to-earth:
"I still read a menu and go, 'Look at the price -- I can get that!' I still think, 'I'm in First Class, this is awesome.' It's insane what's going on in my life -- I just can't believe my luck."
- On auditioning for the female lead in Mr. & Mrs. Smith:
"I don't know if I almost got it (the role), but I certainly put a lot of effort in. They were clearly looking for a certain girl, and you couldn't get more opposite than me and Angelina."
- On whether her son, Kingston, and Brangelina's daughter, Shiloh, play together:
"Yeah! They were like two little blobs when they met. Maybe they'll get married when they grow up? That'd be cute!"
We're such suckers for Kingston!!! While we are not complaining that we get to see tons of images of him, we do wonder why he is the most seen newborn out there. Perhaps Gwen knows he is great for press. Plus it's nice to see parents so involved with their kids. However, we'd love to see some more of Shiloh, Suri and JJ. As for the baby blob statement. We heard it before from Angelina but there was a ton of backlash. Somehow I think she'll probably be able to get away with it. For more pics just read more
I imagine that coming across Tara Reid dining at the Ivy is always an unexpected treat for the paparazzi. Like finding two decoder rings in your cereal. Or searching for change between couch cushions and finding that set of keys you thought you lost four months ago but were too lazy to actually look for. Or waiting outside the Ivy for A-Listers and coming up with Tara Reid and her bazooms.
I kid, I kid Ms. Reid. She's maintaining this put-together self surprisingly well and the paparazzi are just dutifully reporting her progress. Golf claps. For more of Tara shopping post-feeding just read more
Matt is still busy on the set of The Bourne Ultimatum in Berlin, the third installment of the Bourne series. I have to say while I have loved the first two I was really disappointed that we didn't learn more about Jason's real identity at the end of Supremacy. So will Jason finally learn the whole story at the end of the third film? Here's highlights:
- "He will by the end of this one," Damon said. "I don't know how long we can ride that pony. Maybe he'll get a bump on the head at the end or something."
- On doing a fourth Bourne film:
"We have a story and we have a story to tell, but looking at it, to be fair, we go, 'Okay, I think this should be the last one' because I'm half joking, but how long can you [revisit it?] His search for identity is definitely going to come to an end."
- Damon continued to joke about the possibilities of a fourth film, in a "Rocky Balboa" sense of tapping the well 20 years later. "I would love that. If I'm like 100 pounds heavier, 'They pulled me back in! They won't let me go!' They're like, 'No, we don't give a sh*t about you. What are you talking about?' Yeah, I think that's actually probably the only way to do another Bourne movie would be to do it 20 years down the road."
Hey, it sorta worked for Sylvester Stallone. As for the series ending after Ultimatum, we hope it's not true, but there were originally only three books in Robert Ludlum's series. Plus we're dying to finally figure out what happened to Jason. For more of my favorite Matt on the set just read more

Josh Less-Hot-With-Moustache-Nett and KT Tunstall (of that one song you hear everywhere suddenly I see, this is what I want to be fame) were in London today to officially launch Global Cool, a ten year initiative to end global warming (clever name, eh?). Josh regaled the crowd with his story of owning a Prius way back in 1999 while KT probably sang that one song a few times.
Actually, it sounds like Josh was pretty adorable up on stage talking about his environmental efforts, finishing up his speech by saying, "I’m just trying to do my best and if everyone wants to follow suit then that’s cool." You know what would also be cool, Josh? Introducing your upper lip and chin to a razor.
