Jared Leto kissed a girl, and he liked it
Juice factor: 8/10
Well, if anyone was hoping to get lucky with Jared Leto while he’s in town filming Suicide Squad, it sadly looks like things are heating up between the actor and model Valery Kaufman. They’ve been spotted out and about together since the late spring, but last week the paparazzi finally caught them smooching, according to the Daily Mail Online. Not that that actually means anything in Hollywood. It’s practically a handshake or a polite nod.
Drake hangs with his old Degrassi crew
Juice Factor: 7/10
After a wild OVO Fest where a shooting went down at the after-party, Drake had a more PG Wednesday evening in the 6ix hanging with some of his old Degrassi co-stars such as Daniel Clark, Adamo Ruggiero, and Lauren Collins at the Toronto screening of We Are Disorderly. Hey, when you started at the bottom, it’s always good to revisit where you came from, right?
Ben Affleck & Jennifer Garner’s former nanny finally has this to say…
Juice Factor: 10/10
“She’s just a girl and she’s on fire,” quoted scorned former nanny Christine Ouzounian on her private Instagram account on Sunday night. It’s the first post she’s made since news broke that she allegedly had an affair with Affleck — involving a private plane ride and Tom Brady, no less, according to Page Six — that led to Garner filing for divorce from Batman. ET managed to get an exclusive screenshot of Ouzounian’s post. Clearly, she’s enjoying her moment in the sun and not afraid to fly too close, as it were.
Blind Item: S&M and the new monogamy
Juice Factor: 10/10
This media darling and her behind-the-scenes man give the impression that they’re type-A perfect and borderline prudish, but that’s definitely not the case. Although they’ve only been married a short while, they’ve decided to open up their marriage so that they can both get what they need sexually without inconveniencing or officially cheating on the other. Turns out the hubbie is into some pretty hardcore S&M fantasies he’s been acting out, and wifey is okay with it. She’s gettin’ hers on the side, too.
This is why Jennifer Lawrence is your favourite person
Juice Factor: Heart-Melting
We might have Suicide Squad here in Toronto to get all our civilian hearts hot and bothered by the idea of running into famous people at every Starbucks, 7-11, and Jamba Juice, but Montreal has X-Men: Apocalypse, meaning they’ve got the one and only Jennifer Lawrence roaming their — what’s the word again — oh yeah, des rues. The two-time Oscar winner spent her downtime this past Friday visiting young patients at Shriners Hospital For Children in Montreal. Yes, it turns out she is perfect…
Blind Item: Fashionista on the rebound
Juice Factor: 8/10
This fashion industry local celebrity has made quite the name for himself despite his young age. It doesn’t hurt to be stunningly gorgeous. That said, after only a short time in a fairly high-profile position, he recently got the boot and was left scrounging to pull a job out of his ass because — as we all know — the first-stop on the road to Future Has-Been is getting fired from a job for just not cutting it. He landed on his feet, but it’s pretty clear he’s still licking his wounds and maybe not exactly in the kind of career path he envisioned for himself.
