    The lainey blind about Leo dicaprio? She always writes Toni Gunn is only there because she looks good

    • maybeiamcrazy says:

      I don’t think it is BCoop because he didn’t have that many girlfriends. I thought Leo too.

    • Jenns says:

      I thought Leo as well. Lots of hints that it is him.

    • Abbott says:

      Agree. Can’t imagine it is anyone but Leo. With the reference regarding the ladies and his ‘boys’ (seemingly unimportant fact to the story), it’s either Leo or CloonTang. But Lainey is adamant that George is in love, sooooo…. Leo it is.

      • mia girl says:

        @Abbott – Maybe not.
        Funny enough, I happened to re-watch O Brother Where Art Thou this weekend and its ALL about Clooney’s character being, or not being “bonafide”.

    • M says:

      Leo DiCaprio

    • Kiddo says:

      Is Lainey a Brit or Canadian: “flavour”? Or is that spelling a clue?

    • lunchcoma says:

      I also thought it was Leo, especially since Lainey’s been criticizing him a lot recently.

      Bradley isn’t too out of place in the set of facts in the blind item, but I don’t really think of him as a playboy or as having had a lot of girlfriends. There’s Suki, Renee Zellweger, and…? Also, while he’s been in the industry for a long time, he only really hit it big a few years ago. The “so many years” comment makes me think it’s someone who’s been famous for a very long time.

      • magpie says:

        I thought Leo too beacuse Coop doesn’t seem to have much of a boy entourage. I don’t think Amul would be Ok with that.

      • lunchcoma says:

        Good point about the entourage.

        I personally suspect that Amal is okay with a lot of things as long as she gets her end of the bargain, but George has been in Italy for the past couple of weeks. I also have a very strong suspicion that he tends to keep whatever fun he gets up to far away from the LA scene.

    • Stacie says:

      The use of the word ‘variety’ may refer to his interview with Variety at Oscar time that Lainey covered: http://www.laineygossip.com/Leonardo-DiCaprios-Oscar-campaign-strategy-in-Variety/29429

    • B Coop doesn’t drink, so it was probably not him.

    • Mia4S says:

      I’d go Leo too. That’s clearly worded about someone who has been around a while. Then she just put up new pictures of him…looking awful. I mean, really bad. Sure I’ve never been a big fan, but seriously if he’s not looking like that for a movie role? Damn!

      • magpie says:

        Yeah, those pics clinch it. He and Joaquin Phoenix are going for a pushing 40s gross off. They look like Jack Nicolson (at 50).

  2. Daria says:

    Lainey’s new blind item is clearly referencing Leo…

  3. don't kill me i'm french says:

    Tylor is also friend with Jesdica Sozr( something like that) .Her taste on friends is very ecletic

  4. Abbott says:

    Karlie Kloss will be jeeeealllouuuus!

  5. maybeiamcrazy says:

    Emma Stone looks like she is trying to creep away without Taylor noticing LOL.

  6. InvaderTak says:

    Keep it classy there Lena. Everyone else was smiling and having a Good time.

    • BooBooLaRue says:

      Yes thank you!

    • ncboudicca says:

      Good God, she’s tiresome.

    • Amy Tennant says:

      I don’t know why it usually ticks me off when someone flips a bird in a picture, but it does. How hardcore are you that you have to flip off every man, woman and child who happens to see that picture? Maybe it offends me because on some crazy subrational level it feels like she’s flipping me off.

      Now granted, my husband’s caller ID image of me on his phone is me flipping the bird, but in fairness, he was being really frickin annoying when he took it. ;)

    • Rhiley says:

      I was going to write something about how edgy, cool, and original Lena Dunham is. I haven’t snapped a photo with my middle finger up, in well ever, but since Lena has now made it a thang, I must try it myself.

      • astra says:

        She has to feel very insecure in that group of women. That doesn’t mean she should act that way though, but it seems she is desperate for attention, however she can get it. I feel sad for her, even though she’s “rich” and “famous”, it has to be hard to be her. She is so out of place there it has to be uncomfortable for her…

    • Jules says:

      Very childish.

    • HappyMom says:


  7. Kayl says:

    That looks like Jessica Stam too. Bottom, blonde. Like almost 100% that’s her.

    But is that Jamie King she’s leaning on??

  8. R says:

    That Lainey blind item is totally about Leo.

  9. Jenns says:

    The second trailer to Gone Girl looks pretty damn good.

  10. Allie says:

    I’m not impressed. With the exception of Emma Stone (who annoyed me with those stupid awareness signs with Garfield), I wouldnt want to be friends with any of those girls. I don’t care if that’s rude, just my opinion. Taylor tries to be A-list, but can’t seem to find her place there. Also, I might be extra bitter because I hate when she has professional photos done for activities with friends. What happened to a simple Selfie with a camera phone? It’s just so exhausting.

  11. lunchcoma says:

    I think someone finally gave Taylor a hint that she’d do well to keep her dating life more under wraps and to play up hanging out with other women and with her cats.

    And while it’s obviously a PR strategy, it’s kind of working. I find her far less annoying than I used to.

  12. kri says:

    Taylor is creeping me out, but so is that poster for Gone Girl. I think that must be exactly Jennifer Garner’s expression when Ben stumbles into bed smelling like bourbon and the Drakkar Noir that rubbed off on him after getting thrown out by two burly security guards for card-counting at a riverboat casino.

  13. Hissyfit says:

    Cute photo! Taylor always throw the cutest and fun holiday parties.

  14. astra says:

    I think Taylor is OK. She at least appears to be a good role model for girls. I would rather my kids look up to her than someone like Miley or pretty much anyone else out there. Whatever her personal life is, she keeps it to herself for the most part. No drunken wardrobe malfunctions, no constant partying or known drug use/abuse, etc.

    • T.C. says:

      Taylor a good role-model for girl? Seriously? The girl is obsessed with boys, falls in love within 5 mins, has realistic ships with older men, stalks her ex-boyfriend and profits from airing her dirty laundry about her relationships in songs as well as mean girling her Ex’s new girlfriends. Sorry I can’t think of any young girl who I would want to follow Swifty’s example. Just because she doesn’t do drugs or go clubbing doesn’t mean that she is innocent.

      • don't kill me i'm french says:

        She has no boyfriend since 1 1/2 years and in more the most of her boyfriends were some RP stunts/beard agreements ( Jake G,Taylor L,OneDirection’s guy)

      • astra says:

        What exactly is wrong with dating older men? I stand by what I said, there is nothing wrong with falling in love, or writing songs about your life experiences. Like I said, at least she isn’t falling out of clubs dead drunk or on drugs, she is fairly modestly clothed and doesn’t need to talk about her s*x life or body parts or curse every other word. I never said she was innocent but she certainly conducts herself with a lot more self-respect, decorum and decency than the rest of them. It’s nice to not see her smoking pot or sticking out her tongue or flashing her private bits for attention. It’s odd, all of that is just an “empowered” (god I loathe that word) woman expressing herself, but Taylor is horrible? Would you rather girls look up to Miley or Katy Perry?

        Honestly, I don’t like, or purchase anything any of them do. Even Taylor. But at least she acts relatively decent in public. The bar is so low nowadays though!

        Also, why are all my comments on moderation and some not getting posted? I don’t think I have said anything rude, disrespectful or inappropriate either about anyone, or to anyone.

    • maybeiamcrazy says:

      I agree TC. Taylor’s princessy delusions and 5th stage clinger persona are weird. 25 year old woman with a typical high school mean girl personality is not what I consider as a good role model.

      • Amanda says:

        Astra I agree with you. I’d rather my daughters listen to boy crazy Taylor Swift songs than bend over and twerk because Miley is doing it. Don’t care if it’s a fake persona on Taylors part.

      • astra says:

        Amanda, it’s so interesting to me, that Miley and her vulgarity is somehow considered “authentic” and “real”, while Taylor Swift is considered fake and phony. Is it only “real” if it’s degrading, nasty and overs*xed? I have no idea what Taylor is like in real life but if someone like Miley can be “real”, why can’t boy crazy Taylor? Not everyone is the same, some girls ARE boy crazy, which is their choice. Some girls do want to be sweet, cute, demure and dress modestly, and what’s wrong with that? Isn’t it about your right to do as you please? Why can’t those girls have someone to look up to in the media, someone that reflects them? I would die if my girls looked up to someone as nasty as Miley. Who wants their child to turn out like that?

  15. Ice Queen says:

    Did Lena Dunham really had to give the finger, oh so edgy…not. She’s a f*cking idiot.. Ruined the photo, Taylor should photoshop her out.

    • megs283 says:

      Agreed. It’s probably not a coincidence that Lena is on the edge. A little choperoo and that offensive pose is gone-zo!

  16. magpie says:

    I liked that new Beiber article Lainey referenced. Writer makes a good point that Taytay’s parents are stable professionals and her good girl image is not too far from reality. Beibs parents were really young and had problems with depression and alcohol.

  17. ncboudicca says:

    If anyone is ever taking a photo of me, and in the background you see a tornado forming, please let me know so that I can seek shelter immediately. Don’t keep taking pics. Thank you. :-)

  18. mimi says:

    Taylor doesn’t bother me in the least bit. She’s a wealthy and famous celeb with lots of wealthy and famous celeb friends…totally harmless and nbd. I’m more disturbed by the other story with the Instagram pictures of Megan Fox. Why does someone so young and beautiful have to mess up her face with botox overkill and cosmetic surgery? She’s still only in her mid-twenties and shouldn’t be worrying about wrinkles and facial lines yet to that extent. She’s ruining her once naturally beautiful face with unnecessary procedures.

  19. doofus says:

    that wax figure of Jolie is all sorts of wrong. not sure it looks like Aniston (maybe a little) but it sure doesn’t look like Jolie, except for the outfit. and the one of Pitt in the background?…he looks like that country singer. (Maybe Tim McGraw? not sure if that’s who I mean as I’m not too familiar with them.)

    however, the “hair” they used on Jolie is great. that’s what h’wood should use for ANY wig needs in movies.

    oh, and I agree that the bilnd item sounds much more like DiCaprio than BCoop.

    • lisa2 says:

      Yeah that wax does not say Angelina and the one of Brad is bad too. I don’t understand why they can’t make a good wax of either of them. Then it hit me. Most of the ones that are really good the celeb sat and posed for them. Let them do the measurements. Which is why you get pics of them posing with their wax figures. But I don’t think either Brad or Angie have ever done so; therefore all the measurements are based on pictures and video.
      I have never seen a picture of them posing with their wax figures and there are tons of them out there.
      It doesn’t look like Aniston.. well maybe a mix of her and Princess Catherine (Kate; sorry I never know how to refer to her). But that is NOT ANGIE. and yes that hair is fabulous they did great on that.

      I don’t read or buy into blind items. But I saw the pictures of Leo and yuck. He looks so belly bloated. I saw on another site a side by side of him and Jack Nicholson and they could be the same person. Leo could so play the role of Jack in a biography. Because they look the same; in more ways than one.

  20. Happy21 says:

    I love Taylor’s photo and I like her group of girlfriends. I bet they had a blast :)

  21. Stephanie says:

    Great new posters for Gone Girl!

  22. magpie says:

    Nice trailor for Gone girl but Affleck is wrong for the part. Casey would have been better as creepy younger husband. Rosamund Pike looks great. Not sure about NPH.

  23. LAK says:

    She really looks like Karlie Kloss.

  24. Illyra says:

    Ahahahaha, I can’t get over the Jolie figure. It totally does look like Aniston. How the heck did that happen?
