I remember loving this book when I was younger, still have a copy on my bookshelf now. It's an intriguing story to say the least. The film has now been remade and I think it looks wonderful! Might not be everyones cup of tea, but have a watch and see what you think! Oh, and it does have the most delightful Colin Firth in it and lovely Ben Barnes, whom you may best know as Prince Caspian!

Must say, I am a little saddened by the following news. I thought she was perfect for the role of Victoria and after seeing her interviewed when she was in Australia a couple of months ago, she seemed absolutely delightful!
"It looks like the villainous Twilight vampire known as Victoria is getting some new fangs. Sources at Summit Entertainment say actress Bryce Dallas Howard (Terminator Salvation, Spider-Man 3, The Village) will be stepping in to replace Rachelle Lefevre, who is stepping aside due to scheduling conflicts. Lefevre originated the role of Victoria in the first film, and will be seen in the sequel, New Moon, which is due to hit theaters on Nov. 20. Howard will play the part for the third installment, Eclipse."
Matt is an executive-producer of a new History documentary type show entitled The People Speak. The show features celebrities, such as Matt and Marisa Tomei, perform pieces from American history as chronicled in diaries, speeches, and other primary sources.
The show is an adaptation of Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States, which looks at America from the point of view of ordinary people. Matt has been trying to get this project running for more than a decade, and he is amazingly pleased that it has finally taken off.
He told the LA Times, "From the moment we had any influence in this town, we've been trying to get this project off the ground. It demonstrates how everyday citizens have changed the course of history."
thanks to socialite life
you will be pleased to know that my number 1 is still.......

I can't quite work out if this latest piece of news is sacrilegious or not -
Zac Efron and his Hairspray co-star Brittany Snow are rumored to be the top picks to star opposite Miley Cyrus in an upcoming remake of the 1959 beach movie (and subsequent TV show) Gidget.
Now as you know I love Zac and Miley and I'm even a fan of Brittany's but a GIDGET remake???
I know Sandra Dee, the most famous Gidget, was not the last....
Gidget (1959), starring Sandra Dee.
Gidget Goes Hawaiian (1961), starring Deborah Walley.
Gidget Goes to Rome (1963), starring Cindy Carol.
And to top it off, Sally Field played Gidget in the TV version, but I'm still highly sceptical. Gidget has a history of being played by different actresses with Moondoggie being the only character through the 3 movies who stays the same. There followed multiple TV movies, again all with different casts so maybe there is some merit in the idea.
Any Zac movie is a good movie but once again shouldn't they just leave the classics well enough alone? I'm torn.

The twosome was spotted catching a connecting flight in Atlanta, Georgia on Sunday (July 26) and took pictures with fans who spotted them together.
Sophia, 27, and Austin, 29, met through mutual friend Jake Gyllenhaal in mid-2005 and reportedly started dating in early 2006. Since 2008, Austin has appeared in a recurring role as Julian Baker on OTH.
Some of our family's favourite movies happen to star the delightful Emma Roberts. She has the distinction of being my seven year old daughter's favourite actress and I must say that I find her very appealing to watch myself. It has come to the point where her origins had become a distant memory - until I saw this photo that is!!!!
Megan Fox admitted she'd love to taste Zac Efron during a press junket for Jennifer's Body, according to Access Hollywood:
"And while her character, a girl possessed by a demon is a literal man-eater, Megan said there's one real-life guy she'd like to bite into.
"Zac Efron," she said. "I think he'd taste like a strawberry cupcake."
BUT Baby V has stepped in:
Vanessa Hudgens is allegedly furious that boyfriend Zac Efron had dinner with Megan Fox, and has banned him from seeing the ‘Transformers’ actress again. The ‘High School Musical’ actress was allegedly devastated after reports emerged that Efron and ‘Transformers’ star Fox had been spotted cosying up at a romantic dinner in LA.
A friend of Hudgens told the National Enquirer: “Vanessa feels humiliated by what she perceives to be Zac cheating on her. It stings so much more because Megan is one of the hottest women on the planet,” says a source. “Vanessa demanded Zac cut all ties with Megan and swore if he didn’t, they were finished.”
The insider continued: “He swears he only went to meet with Megan to discuss the possibility of working together in the future. But Vanessa’s not stupid – she knows Megan was making a play for Zac.”

Does anyone else recognise her?
It's Riley Keough!!! Still looking blank?
(I'm very excited) I can't believe they haven't mentioned this bit of casting genius. Maybe she's incognito! Ha.

I fell in love with him when played the yummy Dean Forester on “Gilmore Girls” (2000-05). In my opinion he was the perfect first love for Rory and no matter what anyone says, he was definitly my favourite Rory boyfriend. In the first pilot Jared was not cast as Dean but thank god they ditched the original choice and the rest is Gilmore Girls history.
Jared is 6 foot 4 inches and was the second tallest cast member of Gilmore Girls - can you guess who was taller?
His first acting role was as Matt Nelson in the 1999 TV movie “Silent Witness.” when he was 18. Jared and Chad Michael Murray, funnily enough, considering they hated each other as Dean and Tristan, are very close mates. Wouldn't mind a 'Jared/Chad sandwich!
I know there are some fabulous near-naked photos of Jared playing Sam Winchester on 'Supernatural' but I'm going to share a few from his Dean era.
His name is Tindy and he was welcomed into Emma’s family when he was 16, a Rwandan refugee newly arrived in England after fleeing the war torn country. They met at a Refugee Council event six years ago. I love how simply she describes it:
“He didn’t have much English, but we just got talking. His experience had been awful and when he finally got to Britain after tremendous suffering, he told us the authorities didn’t believe him. He spent two nights sleeping rough before they finally did. It was the only time he considered suicide. He’s such a lovely, enchanting boy, so I said “Come and spend Christmas with us”. And he came for half the day. Slowly he became a permanent fixture, went on holidays with us and became part of the family.”
Tindy graduated from Exeter University yesterday with a degree in politics.
Emma did not pose with him surrounded by sad African children and a light shining on her beatific perfectly made up face. But she did pose with Tindy and the diploma, beaming with pride.
Thanks Lainey for this story

Mr Nathan Scott - James Lafferty
Mr Marvin 'Mouth' McFadden - Lee Norris
Mr Antwon 'Skills' Taylor - Antwon Tanner
Mr Jake Jagielski - Bryan Greenberg
Oh and Nathan again - why not?
Sorry to dump another trailer on you so soon but I couldn't resist sharing this one with you in case you hadn't come accross it. It is a low budget indie flick but there is absolutely nothing low budget about the cast of this gem. Robin Wright Penn, Alan Arkin, Keanu Reeves, Maria Bello, Blake Lively, Wynona Ryder (yes really) Julianne Moore. They'd have to try pretty damn hard to make a mess of this one. The trailer looks fantastic and I can't wait to see it.
Kellie and I watched a Stars Hollow gem a few days ago - GREASE 2 - Arguably the most underrated sequal EVER. This naturally lead to a discussion of all things Michelle Pfeiffer (imagine my horror when I discovered Kellie had not watched HAIRSPRAY!!!) Well it turns out Michelle is a woman after our own hearts and is starring in the ultimate 'cougar' film. Good to see that mature ladies still loved the young boys even a hundred years ago. I'll be going to see it if only for this reason.

Apparently Ms Diaz, soon to be seen in SISTER'S KEEPER, is caught up (are those the right words? really ...caught???) in a love triangle with Jude Law and Leonardo Dicaprio. Lordy, I wouldn't mind being 'caught' in that! She is buddies with both after filming GANGS OF NEW YORK with Leo and HOLIDAY with Jude, but has been seen being more than friendly with both in recent days! I say 'go Cam' goodluck to you lady, may the best man win.
What are you thinking? Who should Cam date???
