Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Rachel McAdams Talks Working with Lindsay Lohan and Phillip Seymour Hoffman in ALLURE

Rachel McAdams shined on the cover of ALLURE’s August issue, shedding her makeup and going au naturel! In her interview, the actress opened up on her thoughts about love (especially after her breakup with Ryan Gosling), as well as working with Lindsay Lohan and the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman.

“If anything, I was in awe of her talent. I looked at her as this experienced actor, and she had great comedic timing, so natural,” Rachel said of her experience with Lindsay on the set of Mean Girls. Lindsay herself reportedly found that Rachel was intimidating, to which Rachel responded, “It’s just funny to hear that because you never know what people are thinking. We all try to act like we’ve got it together.”

The actress is set to appear next in the upcoming flick, A Most Wanted Man, which also stars Phillip Seymour Hoffman. “”I learned so much from him,” she said of working with the late actor.” He really takes you under — he really took me under his wing. You feel very taken care of, but at the same time there’s an element of danger: There’s a crackle in every scene,” she continued. “He makes sure the stakes are very high, and there’s a safety there, too. He had so much natural, raw talent, but he worked so hard, too. He really worked for it and didn’t let up. I’m sure that wasn’t easy.”

You can check out more of the spread and interview here! And, of course, be sure to pick of a copy Rachel’s issue when it hits newsstands July 29!

James Franco’s Short Story About NOT Sleeping with Lilo is Ridiculous.

Just in case you missed it- James Franco has written a short story about how he did not sleep with Lindsay Lohan. This story was written for Vice magazine. Warning: once read, it cannot be unread.

The story, named “Bungalow 89” however, merges the actor’s reality with quite a few pop culture references. He also uses his imagination to tell a story of a “Hollywood guy” also named James that stars in a movie “Milk” and a “Hollywood girl” named Lindsay Lohan, coincidentally that sounds just like the real actress.

He wrote, “She was famous because she was a talented child actress, and now she’s famous because she gets into trouble”.

“She is damaged. For a while, after her high hellion days, she couldn’t get work because she couldn’t get insured… Her career suffered, and she started getting arrested (stealing, DUIs, car accidents, other things). But the arrests, even as they added up, were never going to be an emotional bottom for her, because she got just as much attention for them as she used to get for her film performances.”

He then went on in his short story to talk about how his character Lohan would “get money offers for her jailhouse memoirs,” among other things that have actually happened to Lohan.

“So how would she ever stop the craziness when the response to her work and the response to her life had converged into one? Two kinds of performance, in film and in life, had melted into one.”

During the story Lohan pays a visit to James’ hotel room where the two appreciate a J.D. Salinger bedtime story. The two also talk about her sexual conquests. But he decides out loud that he will not sleep with her.

Franco wrote, “Now we were lying in bed. I wasn’t going to f—k her. She had her head on my shoulder. She started to talk. I let her.”

What is even more impressive about the story that Franco has written is the amount of name dropping he does during the story. He uses several celebs in his story from Cher and Leonardo (DiCarprio) He even mentions director Gus Van Sant and photographer Terry Richardson.

Dear James Franco. STOP. JUST STOP.

Lindsay Lohan and David Letterman Prank Call Oprah (VIDEO)

Lindsay Lohan stopped by the David Letterman “Late Show” to chit chat. But one of the highlights was when she and Dave had a little fun prank calling Oprah. During the taping of Wednesday night’s show, Letterman pretended to be Lohan’s secretary and called Oprah from his desk. This led to a little bit of a confusion on Oprah’s end until Letterman admitted who he was.

However, this funny moment turned into a bit of an emotional one for Lindsay.

Even though he had Lindsay right in front of him to ask how she was doing, he decided to ask Oprah how Lohan is REALLY doing as she took Lohan under wing.

Oprah told Letterman, “I think she’s doing really OK, I think to have cameras following you around for every phase of your life, and you’re trying to pull your life together, I think that’s a really difficult thing.”

After hearing Oprah’s words, Lindsay got all teary.

And that folks was NOT acting. Maybe Lindsay really IS getting better? Check out Lindsay Lohan and David Letterman pranking Oprah in the video below.

Lindsay Lohan Talks Rehab, Paparazzi, Oprah And Her Breakup With Wilmer Valderrama

lindsay

Actress (?) LINDSAY LOHAN makes an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Monday, March 31st. Lindsay sheds some light on her most recent stint in rehab, about the paparazzi not following her anymore, and about her love life. Plus, Lindsay shares with Ellen what she did after her breakup with Wilmer Valderrama, as well as her relationship with Oprah.

Check out the highlights from the interview below:

ON GOING TO REHAB:

Ellen: Did that give you more pressure…because you’ve been in rehab a bunch. Right? Like six times. Is that right? Something like that. So does this because there’s cameras following you is that what helped you I think be healthy. You said you were healthier then you’ve ever been. Do you think that gave you pressure to be healthier or?

Lindsay: No, I think that this was the first time that I was able to you know, when I went to treatment this time, when I went to Cliffside, I really wanted a moment for myself and I learned a lot of different tools and things that I didn’t in the past. In the past a lot of it people don’t know this, but I was sent to rehab to avoid you know, them trying to put me in jail. So it wasn’t something that I necessarily wanted or was ready for. It was something that it was kind of just going with the motions. And this was the first time where I went to Shawn Holley, my lawyer, and said look I need some time. I need to figure something out. And it was through kind of you know meditation and learning different things that and just growing up as well and being like I’m tired and I want to be working and all these other girls are doing this and I’ve been doing this my whole life…and maybe, you know, that’s what makes me happy. So I’m just going to do what I have to do to get there again.

ON PAPARAZZI AND LIVING IN NEW YORK:

Lindsay: By moving to New York I can walk on the street and be a human being. Like I can be normal…

Ellen: Yea but you have paparazzi constantly.

Lindsay: No, I don’t.

Lindsay: No I don’t.

Ellen: Oh, they stopped?

Lindsay: Not at all.

Ellen: It was crazy though.

Lindsay: I’ve been in in LA for two weeks and thank god I’m leaving tomorrow because I’m saying this now, but they have not bothered me at all. It’s totally different now. It’s strange. I also don’t put myself in the same situations. You know, there is nothing left for me in going out to a certain place if I know what it’s going to result in. It’s just not worth it to me.


ON DATING:

Ellen: And so are you dating anyone now?

Lindsay: No.

Ellen: And I heard you were on some kind of dating website like Tinder or something?

Lindsay: You know what is so funny, my brother went on my Instagram and did that.

Ellen: He put you on Tinder?

Lindsay: He did it. Ya on my Instagram. He has a girlfriend of like seven years. I was like isn’t Nina going to get mad at you. I’ve never been on Tinder. So yesterday when I was talking to someone that works here they were like so I hear that you’re on Tinder. I was like I don’t even know how to get on it.

Ellen: Would you want to do that?

Lindsay: No. I’m ok with just taking care of me.

Ellen: Ok. Are you nervous about people meeting you for the wrong reasons? It would be hard to meet guys and then you have to be very selective for so many reasons. Like they’re not a good influence or they want to be with you and not for attention.

Lindsay: That sounds very exhausting.

Ellen: Well it is. Think about it.

Lindsay: I just like want to work and take care of me right now. I don’t really…That’s not even a thought.

Ellen: Are you working?

Lindsay: Yea, I’m starting a movie in May with Lionsgate and two great producers.

Ellen: Good.

ON HER MUSIC CAREER AND HER BREAK UP WITH WILMER VALDERRAMA:

Ellen: I don’t remember you actually ever singing. Did you sing longer than just on my show?

Lindsay: That’s great. That’s probably why I’m not singing right now.

Ellen: But, seriously. Did you sing for a while and I just didn’t know that?

Lindsay: I didn’t really do much promotion for it. I love music. Music is a huge part of my life just in general. Even when I’m on set like I’ll listen to songs that kind of like help the character in the scene and gets me into…

Ellen: Right.

Lindsay: But, I was really nervous that day I remember.

Ellen: Really? You came off really good.

Lindsay: That was a really emotional song. It was like about my dad…no I’d just broken up with someone.

Ellen: Who?

Lindsay: Well…

Ellen: Do you remember who? No?

Lindsay: Apparently there’s a list of many guys.

Ellen: I know. I have a list of people. I hear there’s a list going around of all.

Lindsay: It was Wilmer actually.

Ellen: It was what?

Lindsay: It was Wilmer Valderrama.

Ellen: It was Wilmer?

Lindsay: Ya.

Ellen: And did it break your heart?

Lindsay: I was really upset. Ya and that song I had written like the day after and we were still living together. I sang it in his house. Tortured him just recording the song so loud in his house.

Ellen: Wow. That’s amazing.

Lindsay: And I was filming Herbie at the same time. That was…there was a lot going on.

Ellen: Well, you’ve always had a lot going on.

ON HER RELATIONSHIP WITH OPRAH:

Ellen: How does Oprah feel about this and do you talk to her often?

Lindsay: I speak to her almost everyday and she’s just…she’s been so amazing to me. Just, you know, for everything even before the show was coming out I was getting really panicked cause I hadn’t really heard my name like anywhere in so long. And I would turn on the TV and it was right after the Oscars, so I thought I’d have like a minute like I thought it would kind of like distract from the show which is probably not a thing they would want to hear from the network.

Ellen: Right.

Lindsay: But then I just kept hearing my name and I started getting really like panicked about it and I just called her and she was just talking me through it and everything and she got me really into meditation. I mean that…she’s one of the reasons why that’s such a big part of my life. She’s just been a really strong guiding light and force to me as a friend and someone that I admire.

Ellen: I’m glad. I’m glad that she came into your life and I’m glad you’re listening to her cause she does have good advice.

Lindsay: Ya.

Lindsay Lohan Talks New BFF…Oprah

lindsay-lohan-scary-movie_1

Via Extra TV:

Only “Extra’s” AJ Calloway was with Lindsay Lohan right after her appearance on “The Tonight Show” starring Jimmy Fallon. Lindsay saying, “It’s just really good energy…We played a game called water wars …I only got one hit though which was really good.” Lindsay saying Jimmy got soaked, “I got him good, I didn’t realize the gun was gonna shoot so high, hit him in the face.”

Lindsay’s next TV appearance, Sunday night when her docu-series airs on OWN, “I did it because it’s not a reality show, it’s pretty raw…Obviously it’s TV so things will be edited in certain ways to what will get ratings, which I can’t control, but I do know that my intentions going into it were really pure and really honest and real and I really appreciate all that’s happened and all that she’s done for me.”

Lohan continued, “I love that I can call Oprah on the phone, and be like Oprah can we talk right now and she calls me within two minutes and I have to trick her into leaving voice mails so I can just have Oprah’s voicemails…She’s the coolest person ever.”

Lindsay getting emotional when AJ shares with her that he told Oprah she had decided not to go on a trip to Europe at the premiere of Lee Daniels “The Butler.” AJ, “You were supposed to go away and you didn’t go away…I’m the one that said it to her on the carpet.” Lindsay, “She told me about that.” AJ, “She almost started crying on the carpet, she was so emotional about that, she was like, I’m so happy.” Lindsay wiping away her own tears, “She’s amazing, she is…She’s been a blessing to me, she’s great and I couldn’t be happier or more grateful.”

Lindsay saying overall she feels really good and she just wants to keep working. “My grandmother’s dream is gonna come true, I’m taking her on The Chew, so things are looking up….Life is really good.”

Well hopefully she has her head on straight and that the dolla dolla bills that Oprah is dangling right in front of her keeps her running well ahead of the drugs and bad influences. She has all the odds stacked against her, but the right person on her side!

Lindsay just say…

Lindsay Lohan Gets Water Thrown In Her Face! (VIDEO)

lindsay

Oh everyone is doing their best to try to get Lindsay Lohan back in the game. But is Lilo trying to get herself back in the game? Well, based on who she has in her corner, it is very well possible. Not only does she have Oprah on her side, she now has Jimmy Fallon too, giving her publicity on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

While Jimmy and Lindsay did talk a lot about appearing on Jimmy’s first show, doing a guest spot on “Two Broke Girls,” a possible Mean Girls reunion, and her documentary series and friendship with Oprah, Jimmy also soaked Lindsay with a ton of water…in the FACE.

Yep, Lilo got super soaked right in the face, but that is what happens when you compete against Jimmy and lose. Therefore it is only her fault since she lost Fallon’s infamous card game “Water War”, where the loser of each hand gets splashed with glasses of water.

Check out Lindsay getting some big time water thrown in her face in the video below.

Oprah Tells Lindsay Lohan to “Cut the Bull” In Reality Show Extended Promo

Oprah got Lindsay Lohan TOGETHER in the extended promo of Lindsay’s upcoming reality show, Lindsay, on OWN!

The clip gives an inside look into how difficult the actress was while filming her life after her stint in rehab.

“So we were supposed to start shooting at 12:30 and Lindsay is locked out of her apartment. Which means we might not start shooting for a couple of hours,” director Amy Rice says with a sigh after a number of Lindsay’s tearful scenes from the first trailer are shown. She then jumps on her cell phone and says, “She’s not letting us into her apartment.”

Oprah soon comes in to settle the fuss. “My truth is that I really do want you to win. I really do,” the talk-show host says. “If that isn’t what you want, I’m OK with that, you know, I will tell these guys to pack up and leave.”

“No, it’s not that I’m not ready to do that, I do want to,” Lindsay replies before Oprah lets her know upfront: “You need to cut the bulls–t then, you really do.”

Check out the extended sneak peek below!

Lindsay premieres on Sunday, March 9, at 10 p.m. on OWN. I will definitely be watching! I’m rooting for Lindsay, though I’m not exactly sure how a reality show is going to help her better her life. I hope she stays on the right track, though!

Will you be watching?

Lindsay Lohan’s Missing Fur Coat Worth $75k: Karma?

lindsay_lohan_coat

After visiting a night club in NYC, Lindsay Lohan has a missing fur coat- a $75k fur coat at that. Or, rather she’s missing half of her fur coat. (pictured above: Photo Credit: MARK ROBERT MILAN/FILMMAGIC)

TMZ reports that Lindsay was at 1Oak on Wednesday and went in with a ridiculously priced 2-piece fur coat.When she left, she didn’t realize that she only had one of those two pieces- at least until she got to her car. She went back inside to get the other half only to find it wasn’t there.

She then began calling everyone that was at her table, but no one had seen it either.- with the exception of one Seattle Seahawks player that was at her table, or so says sources close to Lindsay.

Putting aside the fact that she has a 2 piece fur coat worth $75k that she hasn’t pawned- Me thinks maybe it’s a bit of karma. Do you remember way back in 2008 when Lindsay Lohan walked out of a club with someone else’s mink coat (valued at $12,000)? This was that same club. I know, it’s a little hard to keep up with all the times Lindsay has been accused of theft, but the owner of the $12k coat ended up suing Lindsay and the whole “stealing” accusations kind of became a thing for a while. (She didn’t steal it, of course, she just “borrowed” it. For two weeks. Just for safekeeping, I’m sure. duh!)

Now, the tables are turned and poor Lindsay may have been victimized. Sad face.

I would say that if I had a $75k coat that I’d sure as heck keep up with it, but that would be a lie. I would protect it fiercely at first, sure, but ultimately I’d forget it somewhere and be reminded why I can’t have nice things. Or if I’m Kim Kardashian, I’ll have my older sister yelling at me about starving children just because I may have lost some expensive jewelry in the ocean. Either way, I can’t have nice things. And Karma, well she’s a bitch.

Tyra Banks Confirms Life-Size Sequel in the Works!

Where you live, where you are, BE A STAR! I never imagined this happening, but Tyra Banks has officially confirmed that there is a Life-Size sequel in the works.

Tyra admitted Digital Spy that a sequel is coming soon. “I have a meeting today to go over the script!” she said. “I swear! I don’t think it’ll be out until probably 2015, but I’m guessing it could be late 2014 or 2015. but it will be back. Life-Size will be back, better than ever.” She’s under contract not to say anything for now, but claims that the sequel will be “very modern.”

The original film was released back in 2000 and starred Lindsay Lohan as Casey Stuart, a tween who tried to bring her deceased mother back with a magic spell. Instead, she ends up bringing her doll Eve (played by Tyra) to life. It’s a Disney classic…at least to me!

The little kid in me is freaking out over this news. I KNOW I am not the only who remembers and loved this movie! I’m really hoping that Lindsay is apart of this sequel as well. I’ll still watch regardless, but she and Tyra again would be magic! For all the other fans, this is for you.

Lindsay Lohan Launches Website, Thanks Fans For Support

Lindsay Lohan is trying her best to change her life around after her 90-day stay in rehab! The actress is taking on new roles, and even launched a new website!  LindsayLohan.com is officially up and running, which Lindsay announced on Twitter today, thanking fans for their support and promising that she’s on a new path.

“To my fans, welcome to my new site,” the actress wrote on the homepage. “Your support has been everything. I’m so excited for what’s next.”

Lindsay recently spoke with media legend Oprah Winfrey for Oprah’s Next Chapter, which airs Aug. 18.”I’m my own worst enemy, and I know that,” she answered after Oprah asked her if she could really turn her life around for the better. “I believe that she believes that she is now ready,” Oprah later told Good Morning America . “And she admitted that there were other times when she was pretending to be ready and not quite sure. … I think this is the first time I could see [rehab] really benefited her.”

Lindsay has been on the up and up lately. She was a guest host for Chelsea Lately on Aug. 5, and snagged a guest-starring role on HBO’s Eastbound and Down!

Here’s hoping Lindsay has it together for real this time! I grew up watching her, so to see her spiraling out of control was very sad to me. She’s a great talent, and I think now she’s fully realizing that she can’t waste her life away. I’m sure others still doubt her, but I’m staying positive that she’s stay on the right path this time around!

Oprah to Lindsay: I OWN You!

So after a stint in rehab, Lindsay Lohan thought she would traipse around Europe for a few months and collect herself. Well, now that she has signed on to the dotted line with OWN (and Oprah), plans have changed. It seems that Oprah is making an executive decision on her latest acquisition and putting an 86 on the Strawberry Snortcake’s travel plans.

According to reports, after Winfrey heard about Lindsay’s intentions of traveling in Europe, she felt like a relapse was inevitable and so talked Lindsay into re-thinking her moves. In other words, Oprah told her: “I OWN you. You aren’t going anywhere!”

Since Lohan is set to star in her own reality series on the OWN network, Oprah could not risk Lohan relapsing and dying before the show is even shot, so who can blame her? If we were Oprah, we would have let Lindsay go and started filming during the rip. We’d love to see Lohan vomiting and snorting in stall #3 at various hours of the night. That’s ratings gold!

2011 TCA Winter Press Tour -  OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network Cocktail Reception

Lindsay wants more rehab?

Lindsay

As the end is near for Lindsay Lohan’s latest rehab stint, there’s news that she just isn’t quite ready to leave. I’m not sure what to do with that information, but I’m not sure how much of that is logic based and how much is “lindsay logic hurts my brain.”

TMZ is reporting that Lindsay is asking for more rehab time. How much more? 3 or 4 days more. Because she wants to transition into a halfway house assisted whatever blah blah during that time to help her with transitioning back to non-rehab life blah blah. Or something like that. Because transitioning out of rehab is necessary, but obviously not something that can’t be handled in a few days.

And, yes, those “close” to her are “shocked” by her transformation in rehab this time around. She’s apparently a “totally different person.”

Lindsay logic means all of this makes perfect sense. It says, “hey, I care about sobriety. See. I care so much I want to stay a few more days to make sure. To make you happy. So you’ll see I care. And I’m super serious this time. But only 3 or 4 days serious. Still, super serious.”

Lindsay logic or not, I do hope this is her super seriously get sober time. Here’s hoping…

The Ties (And ‘Rents) That Bynes

Amanda Bynes better call up Britney Spears and get a quick conference on the world of cray because she is entering it full throttle! After getting into some light fire fare over the past weekend, a judge has decided that Amanda is best kept under wraps, shackles, straightjackets, et cetera. As she remains in the psych ward for further evaluation, her parents are attempting to gain a conservatorship over her.

Lynne and Rick Bynes have filedorig-21230599 the necessary paperwork to set the wheels in motion to protect their daughter from further outbursts of f*ckery. They allegedly had tried before, but Amanda had not done enough in the field of craziness to warrant such an intervention, but now it looks like things have taken a change for the worse and it looks like Amanda will be on a leash possibly for the next few months. And while in the psych ward, Amanda was tested for all drugs and guess which one she came up positive for?

Green sugar madness!

Does this mean that her crazy crown is about to get yanked? Has the door been open yet again for Lindsay Lohan to recover it?!

Stay tuned!

Amanda Kicked from The Ritz!

With the clock ticking until Lindsay Lohan exiting rehab, Amanda Bynes knows that the only way to retain her newly, hard-earned title as ‘White Girl Wasted’ is to go all out and so her antics continue! What’s happening in the world of sheer lunacy with America’s new favorite crackhead? Well, someone just got booted out of the Ritz-Carlton in NYC and fitting the actress, she did it in singular style!

Bynes claims not to smoke the green sugar, but guess what smell was wafting out of her room, slapping all of the help as they cleaned the floor? Yes…that. Since Bynes wasted no time in verbally slapping the staff left and right (she told the desk attendant that she was “too ugly” to check her in and referred her to a plastic surgeon) they surely did not waste one moment kicking her blue-haired ass to the curb.

Amanda claimsamanda-bynes-blue-wig she was not kicked out, but left on her own terms, but we call bull crappy on this one! And Amanda, if you’re smoking the sticky icky, why are you denying it? Just get a medical marijuana card in L.A. Like everyone else!!!

Oprah Sinks to a New Lohan

It looks like OWN needs a bit of a bump in the ratings oprahand speaking of bumps, lumps, and chumps, Oprah’s fledgling network has called on the paparazzi’s #1 meal ticket to give her network a boost in the ratings.

When Lindsay Lohan gets out of jail and realizes how far Amanda Bynes has run with her CrackWhore title, she will need a new avenue for some PR, so here comes Oprah to save the day! The two will set down and Oprah will interview everyone’s favorite Strawberry Snortcake to find out what rehab was like and how she’s moving forward with her life.

And after that?

Oprah’s network is gonna follow this foolyun around long enough to shoot an 8-part documentary that shows how The Lohan plans to rebuild her career and her path to sobriety.

Excuse us while we snicker in the corner…
