Kate Bosworth: Engaged to Michael Polish!

Kate Bosworth and Michael Polish are set to tie the knot!

The 29-year-old actress spilled the exciting news of their engagement in a travel diary that she wrote for Vogue!

“On our first day in Seoul, my fiancé, Michael Polish, and I venture out to discover Changdeokgung Palace. As soon as we enter, it is like magically being transported to a different world—this awe-inspiring, sprawling place was originally built in 1405…” Kate wrote.

“August 4, 2012… What dreams are made of @katebosworth,” Michael tweeted earlier this week.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Old predictable news…..next

Been out a week & it’s only now being reported on?

# 4

If you didn’t care then why click on the article

Like everyone already said, that article has been out for a week, did jj just now notice her use of the word “fiance” or did she have to call him and request a post on his site since none of the real news outlets seem to give a flying sh*t? Anyway, I’m happy for them, they deserve each other, two peas in a pod and all that cr*p.

Not only has been out a week, it has been discussed in the previous post about her already.

They have been wearing wedding rings for over a year and calling each other ‘life partners’ so now calling themselves fiances is a little redundant. What do they use for wedding rings now?

She will cheat on him too sooner or later. Guess if it later she can add divorcee to her resume. She sure isn’t doing much lately to add to it.

@Ummm:
‘or did she have to call him and request a post on his site since none of the real news outlets seem to give a flying sh*t?’

@Ummm: I suspect JJ might have had a friendly nudge from KB’s PR people.

I’m happy for them if they really end up getting married, yet she she still wants all that attention-look! I’m a ‘life partner’ I’m engaged!

She is so painfully boring. I’m literally yawning right now.

nice, good for her.
she is 29.
time to settle down.

this is like one week old news…but i hope they’re happy together, they seem to be soulmates ;)

I’m not a hater, but this girl is going to dump his ass the first chance she gets of getting someone more famous than him. As if she’s going to settle for the nobody-director. Ok, maybe I am a hater :)

@Anita:
ITA with you, & you’re not a hater, you just see things as they are ;)

@LeeSeol: Why is 29 ‘time to settle down’?

@Anita, I wonder if she’s realizing that she’s not going to get that A-lister and that being with someone who really does seem to like for who she is (even if that includes being a famewhorey clinger) is perfectly acceptable.

I’m a doctor,55 ,rich but still single.It’s hard to get a girlfriend in my town ,most of them like my money more than like me.I just want to find my true love.so i uploaded my hot photos on ŔichW00 Ϲ○М ..under the name of Brain. ..if you girls see this comment,i hope you will check my photos out there.maybe you are the one whom i’m looking for!

i cant stand KB but im happy for her i guess but this just means her people trying to get more posts. but im kinda looking forwards to what her wedding dress looks like. im sure JJ will have an exclusive as no one else seems to care about her. as everyone is saying she did the vogue article ages ago and not even Vogue mentioned anything!!

but if that gold band he always wears in her engagement ring MP is a cheap as s.

Just one question, why does everybody dislike her?

Bosmolish @ 08/08/2012 at 8:12 pm

Well she might as well get married because no one else would have that village bicycle.
Well done polish you have scored a real peace of plastic art work for a wife to be

HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!! We all saw this coming. Guess it’s time for him to break out the diamond ring for her. Maybe Cher can design one. I suggest tin for the metal since I hardly think this will last forever.

I was just looking at my watch wonderinf whenthis “happy news” would be a JJ post. Let’see AS in several new posts, OB in several new posts…I mjst be a math master see predict this one.

BabyXgirl @ 08/08/2012 at 8:17 pm

Her different colored eye kind of scares me

Another engagement that she’ll probably mess up with her clinging antics. Nice that JJ posted her not so cryptic tweet. It will go nicely with the tweet he posted to her a couple months back asking her about Montana a year from that day and she responded with “yes”. Now it will be seen that she was being asked on twitter. LOL how romantic! Ugh!

@lol: The gold bands are their ‘life partner rings’ that they’ve been wearing since their public debut as a couple, one day after the long overdue announcement of the end of the AS relationship.
The Vogue ‘article’ was only last week. But MP mentioned at Sundance in January that he’d asked her to marry him while they were still filming Big Sur, but JJ never mentioned that. I guess her PR didn’t feel it needed pushing then.

She has to keep herself relevant somehow. I guess “accidentally” outing your engagement is the only thing she’s got. The fact that no one has picked up on it until now speaks volumes. But, congrats to the happy couple.

@Jeannie: Well, no one really cared about the life partner crap either, so after a year of that, she decided on a different tact.

@Macy, I’d forgotten about the cryptic Montana tweets. Blech.

They got engaged and nobody cared…tee-hee. Whateves, congrats and stuff!

How is this news? She basically went I am marry him from day one with the forced rings in our faces and ever since Alex refuse to marry her. But who can blame him when she was feeding the gossip that he was about to marry her and whatever. She might as well marry this one just like her acting roles. No one is really stepping up to marry her.

You know in a odd way I want to wish her nothing but the best considering she was the bane of a so many AS posts that I actually got used having her around even though I didn’t paticularly think she and AS were the best thing. Also the way she is still skewered on and on JJ about that relationship, made my “okay enough let it go now you are making me feel sorry and stick up for her” reaction come into play so it leads me to say once again, I wish her nothing but the best even if she is Kate Bosworth.

I hope it’s a special edition crapmint decorated with more crap instead of diamonds that she gets from MP via Jewelmint for engagement ring.

@hmmmmmmm: But we don’t hate her, I don’t. I don’t like her, but in the end it has nothing to do with her exes it has to do with her.
Part of me is happy for her, maybe she’s finally happy. But yet and still, she’s so try hard with this, she still has to famewhore and call the paps.

So, don’t feel sorry for her or stick up for her because she’s not liked. She’s not liked because of what she is and what she does. She’s not an ax murderer, or LeAnn Rhimes or a Kardashian, but she’s chosen to be this way.

@ladybug: This is true. People are still commenting on the rings…a year later. We’ll see how this tactic works out for her.

Jared’s personal paparazzi, Just Justin, will be taking the wedding pics. lolololol

@sinca: That magazine has been out for weeks now. The new issue, the September issue, is historically their best selling issue of the year. August is always a slow magazine buying month. I believe Vogue’s September issue comes out next week. Lady Gaga is on the cover. Landing the September Vogue cover is a big fashion get.

So her “friends” couldn’t leak this for her. She had to do it herself. That’s really sad. But I am sure she will try and milk it for what it’s worth, free clothes and coverage.

Wonder if she’ll pull a Kardashian and try to get a free wedding and honeymoon out of it.

@Gina: Kate’s travel diary, where she ‘announces’ her engagement is from the website, not the print edition: it was posted on August 1st:

http://m.vogue.com/vogue-daily/article/2012-summer-travel-diaries-part-one-kate-bosworth-alek-wek-alexa-chung-and-more/

@ladybug- it makes me feel not makes me. That’s just the way I am when someone I feel gets constantly nitpicked.You don’t like her it’s cool but from my lurking I see alot of steers into AS. Just my opinon.
Anyway she does put everyself out there so you get the good and the bad.

Oh and I see how you feel about Rhimes and Kardashian.LOL. Putting them in the same category as an ax murderer. LOL.

All cool, ladybug. I will officially retire from the KB post. See ya at the AS post. :)

@hmmmmmmm: I understand where you’re coming from, I tend to side with the underdog, the bullied, etc.
I don’t put KB in that category. She’d get a lot less grief if she actually appeared to be doing something other than famewhoring, she really would. If she tried to be a better actress, actually learn jewelry designing, etc. Stop being so try-hard. In the end it’s not about her weight, or her exes,it’s about her. If she were more likable those things wouldn’t really be issues.
I wrote in another post, it’s great that she’s got MP’s family as another little family for herself, I think she loves being an almost step-mom to Jasper,and Jasper seems fine with her. But KB always ends up looking like she’s pimping that little family unit, even if she doesn’t realize that’s how it appears. It still appears very needy.

He looks like Rupert Sanders, not a good sign.

Congrats ! I hope she finds happiness !

@TheDudeAbides: Not really, he doesn’t . A least when he’s clean shaven and dumps the hair gel he doesn’t.
And I don’t get the dbag vibe from him. I think he’s happily besotted with KB, bless his heart.

Ladybug; Actually, the guy is a dead ringer..

The guest list, or lack there of should be interesting. Good luck MP.

@LeeSeol: you sound like an uneducated peasant

@ladybug:
I remember some people were speculating at that time, when the Montana tweet came that they were hinting about that.

She is a beautiful girl. What is she doing with this loser?

@TWPUMPKIN: Probably hoping he gets her jobs. No such luck so far.

Fabric_Princess @ 08/09/2012 at 12:00 am

I’ll believe it when I actually see genuine official wedding pictures. Till then, it’s just another PR ploy and publicity tactic. She might not have much else left at this point.

This young woman has many mental and emotional issues that require extensive professional therapy, in my personal opinion, after having observed her ‘relationships’ since her Orlando Bloom ‘dating’ days. No, I’m not a professional therapist, but anyone who has observed her over the years understands that she has a lot of personal issues that she would be wise to address before getting married and/or starting a family. I don’t say this to be unkind or mean spirited. I’m just saying that she has struck me for a number of years as someone who needs professional help. Working in Hollywood and dabbling in the fashion industry with stick thin models and unhealthy ‘diets’ have not helped her.

If she has in fact found a good, kind, sensitive and caring man in Michael Polish, and if she herself is truly sincere in her feelings for him, then I wish them well. If I were her therapist, however, I would ask her one key question: If Michael Polish could not help you in your career in any way, shape or form, and if he shunned the media spotlight and wanted to remain low-key, would you still feel the same way about him? Would you still marry him?

I’ll say one thing: It’s no coincidence that he directs and she ‘acts.’ He needs a subject to film and focus on, and she needs to be filmed and focused on. They are each others yin and yang.

@Fabric_Princess:
I agree with much of what you said. It’s been mentioned a few times lately that what they have in common is they both love her. It’ll be interesting to see what happens when the day comes that he has to focus on something other than her like a real job or filming a movie that doesn’t have here in it. She’s going to freak and throw fits to get attention.
She’s done it with all her exes and the day will come when he has to deal with it too. In fact I think they already had one public blowup at a party in NYC if I’m not mistaken. She is very dysfunctional in relationships. Watching how she clung to Alex and then preceded to fight with him in public when he wasn’t doing what she wanted to do again and again. It put her insecurities and clingy,needy behavior in sharp focus. She doesn’t know how to be alone, and if she’s not the center of attention, she’ll act out to garner that attention, good or bad.

She found the one person on Earth who will respect her as an actress.

Congrats to them, they can now work on their non-existent careers as a married couple.

@TheDudeAbides: Yeah, but so? She’s a cookie cutter blonde who looks like a dozen other HW actresses, it doesn’t mean she’s like them.

@Fabric_Princess, she’s sort of admitted to having ‘issues’:

“The experience ended up being an epiphany for her. “I realised that, as an only child, I had been ¦ craving that feeling of community, that closeness of a large family. When the movie finished filming, I sobbed saying goodbye to everyone. But I’m like that – I get very emotionally connected to people. Perhaps overly so. It’s a kink I’ve had to sort out since.”"

@Next!: “he has to focus on something other than her like a real job or filming a movie that doesn’t have here in it.” Luckily for her, he seems to have large gaps between directing jobs, so for now he can focus on her. And I suppose finally finishing Big Sur, a year after filming ended.

Manny Tranny @ 08/09/2012 at 8:05 am

she is a messed up druggie. she’ll be cheating on him soon. she can’t stay faithful and likes to cheat with married men.

lafamepoma @ 08/09/2012 at 8:16 am

ok, marry this man, have children and leave us alone, you’re nothing i mean as an actress

Whycantipost @ 08/09/2012 at 9:02 am

Well.. Guess the showing off of the lifepartnerrings didn’t work because no pap responded to it, so she decided to shove it in JJ’s face so he writes about it. Or she just paid him of course, because announcing she is engaged on Twitter isn’t classy, Twitter is only for showing off your love, stepdaughter and posting ‘artistic’ pictures.

Alexander S…..owes him some flowers..took a bullett for him:)

So Try Hard and Try Harder will now combine to officially become Try Hardest….still so underwhelming.

Kate Bosworth Casually Lets Everyone Know She’s Engaged

Kate Bosworth, the upside down broom that Hollywood decided to turn into an actress, has been rubbing her unflavored bits all over writer, director and actor Michael Polish of Twin Falls Idaho for about a year now and it seems like he’s put a hitchin’ ring on her skin-covered phalange. Kate wrote some post about her trip to Seoul, South Korea for Vogue and in it, she called MP her “fiancé.” What does it all mean? Does this mean Kate Bosworth is engaged?! (“Yes, it means she’s engaged and yes, answering questions about Kate ‘Non-Muthafuqin Factor’ Bosworth’s personal life tells me that I need to spend my brain power on more important things like reading the ingredient list on a box of Knox Gelatine.” – you) Here’s what Kate wrote:

On our first day in Seoul, my fiancé, Michael Polish, and I venture out to discover Changdeokgung Palace. As soon as we enter, it is like magically being transported to a different world—this awe-inspiring, sprawling place was originally built in 1405. We explore ancient towers, pavilions, and the beautiful “secret gardens,” and the feeling is serene, peaceful, and ancient. What is interesting about Seoul is the juxtaposition between modern-day skyscrapers, towering over ancient preserved buildings.

BARF.

Kate used to regularly see the faces of all the Norse gods right before she came thunderbolts while riding Mount ASkars, so any trick she humps after that is going to be a major downgrade. With that being said, ***** did good for herself. In almost every picture I see of Kate, she looks cold, wilty from not eating food things and on the verge of asking you for a cigarette. In almost every picture I see of MP, he looks cold, wilty from not eating food things and on the verge of asking you for a cigarette. They’re perfect each other! Together, they can look cold and hungry while they ask strangers for two cigarettes.

Ouuu… why?!! She is so pretty…

@ian: Because he’s willing to indulge her famewh*re ways.

This is just so funny. The best part is only JJ has picked this up, probably because Robin B called him and told him to do it. This so called couple is just disgusting. Let them get married and leave us alone.
I just cannot believe how him and his family has so easily adopted her famewhoring ways, they truly seem to love it.
You guys are right, if he ever works again, I can’t wait to see how she reacts to that, unless of course he makes her his star, that I can definitely see happening.
Her desparation seriously just grows and grows, it is truly sad, that is wasn’t leaked or anything by “a friend”, because she has none.

brenda dubois @ 08/09/2012 at 2:45 pm

lol they’ve been trying to get this make news for ages now. it’s kind of embarrassing.

About KB leaving people alone, why does anyone care? Anyone commenting on her is here on their own volition, unless they feel that KBolish is somehow controlling their actions. She and he are a spectacle. KBolish is quite remarkable in their desperate need for attention by famewhoring their “life($$$$) partnership “. The only person I feel bad for is 14 year old Jasper

Bottomline, KB is dull, stupid and predictable and quite a few of us would have made bank had we made money bets on how she would behave. Quite frankly, I’m sure a certain person had misgivings during a trip to his homeland but continued with the relationship. I’m sure he’s been feeling like an @ss for dealt with that past the one night it deserved. We’ve all been there, luckily most of us have not have dumbf*ck , what the hell where you thinking moments publicly documented like that.

@News?!:

Alex wanted to marry her it was her who f&%$d it up by cheating with this hobbit

she is gorge here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@???: Alex never wanted to marry her, that little tidbit from the Enquirer was probably her doing.

@mforman, it would be funnier if JJ actually picked up from the comments in the previous post and then confirmed with RB.

@ladybug—-You are quite right, that ridiculous engagement rumor was definitely spread by the creature or her PR camp, it was so obvious, like the one that stated he was sleeping on couches, when he wasn’t even in LA.
JJ must get some payments from her to keep up with this. If he was actually doing the reporting, he would have printed it last week, but no he waited until he got the Robin B call. Let us not forget she gives him stories on all her A listers, so he has to do he bidding. It truly is such a joke.
@Lois—I agree, I do feel bad for Jasper P, but it seems her mother, aunt and father have all jumped on the famewhore bandwagon and instead of trying to shield this child, they let her join in on it and keep posting photos of her. It is just a very weird situation.
I also now realize why the creature made sure there was a recent photo of her coming out of Vera Wang’s Boutique. KB probably thought people would start talking, but once again no one cared. She is truly a joke, that nobody cares about, not even the sites that she used to pay, JJ is the only one that keeps up these posts.

@???:
go away KB don’t you have to pimp out your engagement for all it’s worth. Just like he was drunk failing you last year too.

I’d be surprised if it actually happens. She’s been trying to trample someone –ANYONE– into marrying her since the early 2000s and just hasn’t been able to close the deal. Let’s see if she can nail this fugmo’s shoes to the floor. I’m betting this will end up like all the rest. Remember when she dragged her whole family to Orlando Bloom’s mother’s house for Christmas one year? That attempt bombed. Then she chased AS to HIS family’s house in Europe (uninvited again) telling them how much she loved him. Another bomb. The British model? He moved back to London to get away from her. They all decide after a while that boning her isn’t enough for a lifetime of listening to her narcissistic babble. These two will live together for a while and then he’ll leave, while she chases him all over the world.

@???: I can tell you with 100% certainty, he never wanted to marry her.

British Latin American @ 08/09/2012 at 8:13 pm

I’m happy for Kate. I had the feeling that he would be the one she would marry. She seems quite comfortable with him, and he seems very protective of her. I wish them both happiness.

I did like Kate with Orlando Bloom and James Rousseau (the model) but those relationships did not work out, fortunately or unfortunately, however any of you wish to view it. Kate with Alex did not look right. There was no chemistry, and Kate acted like a puppy dog following after him and Alex just did not seem interested. Michael is the best man. Now if only he would keep that gel out of his hair!

Kate wrote the Seoul article for Vogue and referred to Michael as her boyfriend. The same article was put on the blog but apparently someone at Vogue changed boyfriend to fiance. According to JJ, Michael tweeted “August 4, 2012 . . .what dreams are made of.” They were visiting her parents at that time. I think that’s when they got engaged. They seem to be a very good couple. I’m happy for them. Congratulations to them!

@Tulip:
Look you can like her all you want, but that came directly from the Vogue site. There wouldn’t be any reason to do that if they didn’t know something in advance. She either wrote it that way, or had them change it, or they asked her if they could change it and she gave them the ok. They didn’t just do it willy nilly.

http://www.vogue.com/vogue-daily/article/2012-summer-travel-diaries-part-one-kate-bosworth-alek-wek-alexa-chung-and-more/

@Tulip: You’re right. The magazine article used the phrase “my boyfriend”. Who knows why it was changed on the blog. Vogue is so powerful they can do anything they want even change something willy nilly. Certainly the folks at Vogue know Kate and Michael are in a serious relationship. If they’re engaged, I wish them all the best.

@Corrina: @Tulip

Can you post a scan or link of the Vogue article where she says bf instead of fiance? Does anyone really believe that Vogue would stoop to the level of a gossip rag to change someone’s relationship status? If they did, why would they even care to do it to such nonentities as KBolish?

She’s pretty spectacular. Just saying.

Too funny that even the fashion victims who love even her JCPenney inspired casual looks didn’t care enough to read the Vogue piece until the fiance bit made blogger news. Took them a week to even comment on the Vogue post.

Just Joanie @ 08/10/2012 at 10:59 am

Unfortunately I believe the speculation that Alex got blind sided by Kate when she hooked up with MP. Something about his eyes in various pics for a few months after the news broke. I think he may have been used to the constant arguing and assumed they would work it out but she found a shoulder to cry on with Polish. I hope Alex realizes that he lucked out when she moved on. I know I’m very happy to read that they’re getting married.

Doubtful, they hadn’t been seen together in month before she revealed her “life partner”. He seemed pretty darn happy at comic con and then NYC after that.

That should have said “months”

@Just Joanie: No, he looked quite happy after Coachella. If he was ‘blindsided’ by anything it was how quickly she moved on, but It think that was so much blindsided as surprised. That, and the possible stalking, perhaps that accounts for the look in his eye you think you’re seeing?

To me, if you look at her pap pics, she still looked unhappy until about September. Perhaps it was around then she finally realized that MP had want she wanted from a man-which is total devotion and the willingness to famwhore, no matter how demeaning.

@Just Joanie—-I am sorry but I must disagree, the moment she left Coachella, his smile returned. They had not been spotted together anywhere for months, since that stupid NYLON dinner she had to throw herself and nobody attended. If you watch that video, it is so embrassing he stayed as far away from her as possible, he wasn’t even at her table for the dinner, I mean come on. AS hung around with Rhys Ciorio (I know I spelled that wrong) and was in the video for maybe a second. The next day if you recall, it was in the NY Post and then in US about the rough patch, that so called relationship was over then, and him being the gentleman he is waited and finished out their co obligations.
Just check out the videos for Comic con and his NYC visit, he was back to the AS we all know and love because the tumor was removed from his life.
KB knew she wasn’t getting him back, for quite sometime, even with her stalking, I truly believe she was cheating on him because after maybe 6 months, AS pulled back and so did his friends, if you remember they never had one date alone, not even a vacation alone, it must have been horrible for him to put up that front, when you look at any photo of them he is just miserable and let us not forget her trying to kiss his poor brother Bill, and her topless photos of herself the day of the release of his long awaited trailer, those will always say it all, she is truly a disgusting creature.
These two useless famewhores deserve eachother, because honestly the only work she is going to get, is if directs something and makes her the female lead and oh yes, those ridiculous JM commercials.

Sorry to post again so quickly, but I just realized something. The majority of us have been commenting lately how KB is even below zlister at this point, fired from a film, has JJ change the headline of the post, and has been doing absolutely nothing and has nothing lined up, I do not even think she has a stylist in Cher any longer or friend, another one bites the dust and is so desparate for attention that she makes sure the paps are called and laughs and talks to them and pretends they are fans and has JJ even print that.
Then all of a sudden there are photos of her at Vera Wang, once again sans Cher, and now this engagement crap. This is exactly what she wanted, she is getting attention from various sites regarding this and people are bringing up “Big Sur”, and nobody is mentioning that she is just a useless creature.
I love that Robin B has not made an official annoucement, this was a perfectly planned decision, they will wait for this initial nonesense to die down and then they will make a statement.
We all know her people and herself read JJ and they probably came up with this. Now we are going to get all of these little tibits, until Robin B makes her official announcement, unless they go the “quiet” way and do not say anything and try to get people to talk.
I figure by next week this to will die down, until her and her team bring it up again.
KB should take on a new career as a teacher in famewhoring, that she would probably do quite well at.
Does anyone else find it interesting that Cher didn’t tweet anything about the suppossed engagement, even playing coy and hinting at something, but today she has posted photos of a gorgeous beach at Big Sur, that is the first time I think she has even mentioned the film.

@Just Joanie- I agree with you. People want to project their happy feelings on the breakup on Alexander but he looked any normal guy getting over a breakup regardless if the relationship was good or bad. KB moving on so quickly had me suspect that she and the director started the flirtation way before the breakup.

@Agree: It’s not really ‘projecting happy feelings’ it’s paying attention.
Could she have dumped him? Sure, and he was probably never so happy to be dumped in his life.
But her behavior that spring and summer indicated someone who was not dealing well with the end of the relationship, even if she was already lining up MP.

@mforman, I’m surprised JM hasn’t put out a Big Sur inspired jewelry set yet, perhaps they’re waiting until the film actually has a release date.

Could it be that he wasn’t so much disappointed by their breakup but that he hadn’t found the right one? I remember this from August 2010:

“Alexander, 33, admits he is a thrill seeker but is wary about who he dates as he thinks it would be too damaging to his life.

He said: “I know I have to be careful because there is something destructive within me, I think, and I can have a tendency to just search for the kicks. I can’t really get too close to someone who’s too destructive, or too dark, because then I might go down the rabbit hole myself.”
http://www.azcentral.com/ent/celeb/articles/2010/08/13/20100813alexander-skarsgard-relying-good-looks-artistic-suicide.html

Perhaps he already saw the writing on the wall with KB at that point.

If anyone wants to say he looked unhappy after the breakup, well, didn’t look unhappy when they were together?

This need for people to empower KB by stating she left AS is bizarre. FACT: She felt the need to debut the life partner and matching rings immediately after the breakup news was announced.

FACT: She fails to mention him during an interview where she states that Molish is her life partner and OB( most famous ex) broke her heart.

Seems like James Rousseau also cut her lose since she fails to mention him as well. All of this point to BBS( Bitter B*tch Syndrome), not someone who did the dumping. Skars seemed lethargic at best during their time together and probably was only surprised at the quickness at which she found her “life partner”.

Skarsgard and Bosworth have only said nice things about eachother in magazines post split and haven’t spoken about the relationship so
FACT: Nobody knows sh*t about what really happened between them. It’s all speculation.

Carry on…..

@LOL:

FACT: Someone needs to twat about her great love with her life partner. Why not before when she was setting AS up with the paps? She had no problem dropping overt references about him everywhere. Seems he put his foot down on how far she could go and Molish is more than okay with her twatting about their personal life

FACT: AS said was she was a great actress when he was interviewed about the upcoming release of Straw Dog in Black Book, and quite frankly, I don’t think he was referring to her onscreen acting skills.

@Just Joanie: I respectfully disagree, after that announcement he was the old smiley Alex. He wasn’t crying over the end of the relationship.

Of course they’re going to say nice things about each other, they can’t trash each other. Not that I think either of them would, but how would that look if either of them said anything bad about the other? Not good.

Does it really matter who ended the relationship? No. Let’s just be happy that it’s over.

@LOL:

What’s he supposed to say? That she’s a raving, stalking *****?
He never even admitted to the fact that she was ever his GF in any way shape and form.

@Next!:
Agree, his comments were out of professional courtesy to be polite. He only commented on her work on SD and not much else. She of course went into more detail.

@Lois: Hey now, most of the stuff at JcPenny is more fashionable than what Kate usually wears.

@Sofie:

We can all pull together better looks from even Walmart than some of her casual “style” ; ). For Pete’s sake she needs a stylist to go to an outdoor music festival.

Just Joanie @ 08/10/2012 at 4:46 pm

Yikes! I didn’t realize people were this passionate about who ended it or I would have stayed quiet. But since LOL has given us permission to carry on with all speculation and I’ve unintentionally opened a can of worms, I’ll add that the remarks he made in this interview from Aug 3 2011 about “falling hard when he falls” and “wanting to be drunk and bitter” (when he saw the wedding party) gave me pause and made me sad for him. Maybe I was reading too much into his words and projecting a sadness that wasn’t there.

http://www.ericnorthman.net/interview_mensjournal.php

I also remember Alex walking her dog on June 12 (after Coachella). Then she unveils the “life partner” complete with wedding bands on July 29. (Had to look up the dates here at JJ) How long was she seeing MP that she could determine him to be the love of her life? Just a few days, weeks, months? Regardless, I agree that Alex did look miserable in most photos with her and (like Lilla said) I’m just overjoyed that it’s over no matter who did the deed. And since I’ve gone way off topic I’ll add, I hope they marry very soon and it lasts forever.
Over and out

@Just Joanie: The dog walking perplexes a lot of people. But it was over then. I think he walked the dog because maybe he missed the dog?
The Men’s Journal interview, well that bitterness could be not because he was dumped but because, in the end, it was a bad relationship that really should have ended much, much earlier, it would have been better for both of them.
Of course he could have been dumped. But her behavior that spring seems not to have been one who was the dumper, it really doesn’t.
I think that may be where part of the strong reaction to the suggestion that he may have been dumped, it’s not even just his reaction, its hers as well. Now it’s not out of the realm of possibility that she still dumped him and yet was trying to get him back. (shrugs).

I agree with Lois, a lot of the ‘she did the dumping’ seems to be an attempt to empower, either because she’s KB or just because she’s female (this was the case on Celebitchy a year ago), a lot of women don’t like the presumption that all women are dumped. But I don’t think that’s the case here, this is pretty KB specific, based on her past behavior and her behavior during that time.

As for for she and MP, well I do hope she’s happy. Maybe she’s realized that she wasn’t going get the combination of slavishly devoted fellow famewhore who was an A-lister and realized it’s more important to have the slavishly devoted person. He does seem to adore her to pieces, bless his heart.

@Just Joanie @ 08/10/2012 at 5:45 pm

Here’s accurate info: You’re somewhat correct. KB broke up with AS. It wasn’t a result of another person. The relationship simply wasn’t working for KB. They broke up right after she finished filming Black Rock in Maine. AS walked Lila while KB was shooting Black Rock. AS didn’t want the breakup. Maybe for the first time ever, The National Enquirer got straight info from a source. I happen to know a close friend of AS’s but I’m sure nobody will believe me. I don’t care. More personal information on either Kate or Alex I will never share. I will say both KB and AS are great people. I’ve never met MP. However, I extend congratulations to KB and MP.

@@Just Joanie: Oooh, insider info!
But if AS didn’t want the breakup why did he look so miserable the last few months of the relationship and so much happier out of it?

@Lois: “We can all pull together better looks from even Walmart than some of her casual “style” ; ). For Pete’s sake she needs a stylist to go to an outdoor music festival.”

This is why I don’t understand her ‘fashion icon’ status. Yes, she occasionally dresses herself, or at least she buys clothes, since she’s papped shopping quite often. But for the most part, that ‘iconic’ status is the result of Cher’s input,.

@@Just Joanie: Right that’s why he looked so miserable when she was at Coachella and so happy when she left, and she was clinging to him harder than ever and he left to stand in the misting machines to get away from her. That’s why she was staring at him at Joans in late March and he was ignoring her over his soup while she later slinked away because she clearly hadn’t been invited and he was eating with someone else. I am so sure that’s what people do when they dump a guy they don’t want to be with anymore, and when that guy wants to stay together instead of break up. Seems right….oh wait, no it doesn’t. AS was out of that way before June, he barely acknowledged her presence from about Feb onward while she gave him the google eyes, or at least tried to, over lunch.

He never looked happy or miserable at Coachella – only drunk! Same look again this year.

@@Just Joanie:Personally, I believe what you’re saying might be true, if for no other reason because the dog walking pics cannot be explained otherwise, the way I see it. I can’t see anyone trying to get away from someone they don’t want to be around at all and then contacting them to walk that someone’s dog.

Still, there’s no way it wasn’t the “result of another person”. She’s never been single. She clearly deals with the end of her relationships before actually breaking up and (maybe in other cases, definitely in this one) after having found another man to become involved with. If she hadn’t found Polish, she wouldn’t have broken up with AS. I don’t think she cheats, to be honest. I just think she finds it extremely difficult to leave when she doesn’t know there’s someone else waiting for her.

@ladybug (#89)—-That is so funny and I bet you are right, it will probably be a ridiculous pc that the 2 famewhores turn into a JM commercial advertising the film. Funny how her suppssed BFF mentions nothing even in some kind of code and prints a photo of a beach at Big Sur. Very weird. KB must be in her glory with all the postings she is retweeting regarding herself. I think by tomorrow, those will stop and next week Robin B (famewhore #2) will make her annoucement.
@Lois (#94)—-You make an excellent point, that I too feel is quite true, regarding her acting, he said nothing that a co star wouldn’t say about a fellow actor, nothing more, nothing less. The only time he has spoken about her was that article and it didn’t seem like it was a comfortable interview at all. KB of course kept making her useless hints that were so obvious, but his fans new the truth.
James Marsden was the one who kept talking about her, AS never once said GF and her name ever in the same sentence.
Yes, he walked her dog, but like I said he probably did that being the gentleman we know him to be and an obligation he had made way before the break up. We all know he loves animals, why would he take out his dumping of her on an innocent dog.
For all of you who do not remember, she was the one that lost a considerable amount of weight (of course for attention) and was stalking him so bad, that he had to stop going to places that he not only enjoyed but had been going to for years. AS just kept looking better and better with each new photo we got to see of him, it was so obvious.
This creature does not handle getting dumped well at all, as we have all seen. I have never seen someone just go from man to man, and now she has found one who not only loves her as much as she loves herself, but totally loves and gets into her famewhoring ways.
KB has needed help for years, but she has nobody who she doesn’t pay to tell her the truth and that is so sad.
Let us not forget 10 years in this business no friends, no co stars who talk fondly of her, a reputation as not only box office poison, a pariah, but one of if not the biggest famewhore there is.

@S.: You’re not the first person, and you won’t be the last to go ‘but what about the dog?!’.
Except, as already mentioned, maybe he just liked the dog and was able to separate the relationship from the dog? Maybe he thought the request was strange but was like, ‘well, as long as it’s the dog and you’re not here.’ Sometimes there really is a simple explanation, even it seems odd.

Why is everyone bringing up Alex. She also dated that James guy for a much longer time. He just disappeared all of a sudden. If anyone would feel sad it would be him. She left him to be with Alex how ever that came to be. Since he invested so much time and if I understand music into her. He may be sad right now since he seem like he would have married her. Is it because Alex is more famous is that the reason why it’s so interesting. As for Alex if he has regrets it’s probably for that love he made that song request for I am more than sure if there is still hurt there. But then again is it because she is not famous here in the US.
All I keep reading is back and forth about who dumped whom. They are clearly over and looks like THEY BOTH HAVE MOVED ON. Gossip aside stop projecting. My final words I doubt Alex is sad about this I am pretty sure he would want her to move on and be happy. He is a fairly new actor in HW and he seems to be very focus on that maybe he’s just not ready to be married yet to her and anyone at this time.

@hahaha: I’m presuming JR would have moved on as well, since it’s been three years. And yes he gets less attention because he was much less well known.
Why do we keep going over it? Because it’s a gossip site? Because we’re bored? :)

In the words of Captain Barbossa:

Barbossa: So what now, Jack Sparrow? Are we to be two immortals locked in an epic battle until Judgment Day and trumpets sound?
Jack Sparrow: Or you could surrender.

It’ll get brought up again, I assure you! Sorry!

@Just Joanie: It’s a gossip site, half of the fun is the difference of opinions, I’m sorry you feel attacked though, that was not my intention. That quote is pretty standard from him. He also said something very similar about one of his past relationships when he first moved to the states. He was in a relationship (toxic in many opinions) with a girl who still lived in Sweden. It ended badly & he was heartbroken. When I read that article, I didn’t even think it was about KB, I thought it was about the other girl.

Back to the Bos. I agree with you, but I have to wonder if she’ll make it down the isle this time. Part of me thinks she is always looking to trade up. In my opinion, it seems like a pattern for her.

@Lilla: “Back to the Bos. I agree with you, but I have to wonder if she’ll make it down the isle this time. Part of me thinks she is always looking to trade up. In my opinion, it seems like a pattern for her.”

Which is one of the reasons we keep going back to the last relationship, because it does seem like a pattern.
Of course, other than the engagement, there really isn’t anything new:
A JM ‘film’, but we get that every month, and almost always mock it
She’s got no new film roles
The three roles from last year haven’t been released.
Will she and MP actually get married? Will she finally be happy? Will she ever stop trying to be a famewhore?

@ladybug: She really has had nothing new work wise, other than JM lately. Is she still involved with the Vanessa Bruno campaign?

Will she and MP actually get married? Maybe? I hope so.
Will she finally be happy? Maybe.
Will she ever stop trying to be a famewhore? No.

DailyNightly @ 08/10/2012 at 10:30 pm

My guess is, if this announcement doesn’t generate enough interest to get offers on covering her wedding plans, bridal fashion shoots and wedding day coverage, the wedding will never happen.

@ladybug: @hahaha:
KB didn’t leave JR to be with Alex, she was ******** around with Chris Martin and got busted. Alex came into the picture when she needed to change her reputation as a home wrecker.

Don’t think for a second that she didn’t set up the dog walking pap shots.
They had already been broken up and she traveled with MP to Italy a few weeks later in June.

@Next!: Your post and others like it is ridiculous. You people refuse to believe $hit written in the tabs about AS but $hit written about KB in the same $hit tabloids becomes the gospel truth. Only in your feeble minds is she considered a home wrecker. Nobody important paid any attention to the silly CM report.
Right – she set up the dog walking pap shots while she was filming on some island off the coast of Maine. That makes sense – NOT.
She didn’t travel to Italy with MP. He joined up with her later during filming.
It’s wild how so many posters at JJ have nothing to do but rag on people. Go out and do something with your lives. Enough fantasizing about your precious AS who would never give any of you the time of day.

@S.

If someone leaves a dog at your house and refuses to get it, do you simply ignore the animal, leave in the front of their house or do you take care of it until the owner or responsible party retrieves the dog? I’m thinking any person with a heart and soul would
at least feed and walk the dog regardless of what the situation with its owner is.

@ladybug: …Maybe his PR team wanted him to remind everyone that he’s straight a few days after that Blind Item said that an HBO star was gay.

@Sofie:

Last time I checked HBO had more than one show. Gee…what are the chances that one of the many stars on any of the HBO shows is gay? I don’t know…they made need to keep that ONE gay out of entertainment…it might spread…..
*****-Please-GIF-216414433" rel="nofollow">http://decoded-dreams.deviantart.com/art/*****-Please-GIF-216414433

@Lois: I completely agree. It was actually a good guess for a Blind Item site to just make up, because it statistically has to be true that one of the stars is gay, right?
I looked it up and it was released in early June 2011: “What HBO star is going to be coming out of the closet soon?”
Cut to later that week and Alex is walking Kate’s dog. I only remember it because everyone at the time assumed that his publicist told him to walk the dog because he was one of the most popular suspects. Considering they share a PR person it wouldn’t have been hard to arrange.

@Sofie: Let me change that: Considering how many people people are featured in True Blood, statistically at least one of them has to be gay. Although I don’t follow the show closely enough to know if anyone is out or not. And that’s just one HBO show (and most of their shows have a LOT of “stars” as a blind item would define them).

@Sofie:

Dog walking now means you’re not gay or bi? Okay. Still seems odd that in a small country like Sweden not one person has come out to say that Alex is gay, bi, try….Seriously, not one person in that entertainment community has a story to share?

@Sofie: No, everyone at the time didn’t assume the publicist told him to walk the dog to fend off gay rumors. Most people were confused, since they couldn’t figure out why, if they hadn’t been seen together in 2 months, was he walking the dog?
You do know that a lot of blind items are totally BS, right?

@Lilla, she has Vanessa Bruno. And she’ll do Burberry stuff. And Calvin Klein will pay for her to go to Korea to see some CK art exhibit. So she’s still got fashion. For now.

@ladybug: I adore that “Pirates” line!;)
I’m not really saying they hadn’t broken up. Obviously, they were at least on the verge of doing so, if they hadn’t already. But to me it seems highly unlikely that he would do her any kind of favour, if he felt stalked in any way. Imagine yourself trying to get someone out of your life and their hanging on for dear life; how would you be able to separate the dog from that person? To be honest, I don’t think many people would. Perhaps I’m projecting, but aren’t we all to some extent, whether we mean to or not? Personally, I would have grown attached to the dog, but if the owner had become a burden, I would avoid all contact. It would be a matter of self-preservation and about not giving them false hope (which is all too important if you have to deal with someone who won’t let go and even stalks you). I wouldn’t even have gotten to the point where he would be able to ask me to do anything.
All in all, it’s very possible that they broke up because *he* wanted it. There’s no reason why he’d refuse to walk her dog if they had simply broken up. And it doesn’t mean that just because he walked her dog he wanted to get back with her. But desperately trying to avoid someone and then walking their dog…I can’t see it. In other words, all this dog walking thing proves to me is that he didn’t feel stalked and they didn’t turn into enemies – nothing more, nothing less.

@Lois: Oh, I have no idea about the details. Do we know she left the dog and refused to get it? If he felt like running away from her and she had left the dog with him, then yes, he could have been taking care of it without worrying about anything as he wouldn’t have to be in touch with her at all. In this case, though, the dog walking wouldn’t have been a one-time thing, so it begs the question how come we didn’t get more pics, especially if KB had paps chase him around to prove that he still cared. (I could be wrong, I don’t remember if we had gotten pics from just one day)

@S.: I understand what you’re saying. And it does seem weird. But it’s also a pet, and not her. And since she wasn’t there at the time, she was in Maine, perhaps he wanted to say goodbye to the dog?

While this really doesn’t apply in this case, since it was never his dog, pet custody issues are a real issue. So while some people will cut ties to the pets because of the relationship to the human, a lot don’t, even if it’s a bad breakup. So I can see him walking the dog as a favor, I really can, even If if he thought she was still pursuing/stalking him.

You and I might not do that, but we’re not him.

The relationship didn’t end well, I think that was obvious. Outside of the platitudes he said during interviews while promoting SD, he avoided her. Remember he he left the SD premiere before she arrived, and he looked … skittish. And yes, this could just be because it didn’t end well, not because she’d been stalking him.

When you say ‘he wanted it’, do you mean the breakup or a more serious relationship?

@S.: If you go back to the pics from that day, you’ll see the kennel tags. So she didn’t drop the dog off, since she was in Maine. I wouldn’t be surprised if the dog was picked up by a third party.

AS has said that neither he nor KB will discuss publicly why they broke up, so all we have is speculation:

http://i1239.photobucket.com/albums/ff505/Jordan_Moon/AlexElleUK178W.jpg

He’s mentioned before that he’s stayed in previous relationships long past their expiration date, and that seems to be the case here. It would have been better for both of them if this had ended after the initial bloom was off the relationship, which seems to have been late/summer early fall 2010. Before that, he looked happy. After that, not so much.

@OMG:

What? You think they don’t-have phones in Maine? It isn’t possible that she called him saying someone couldn’t make it to walk her dog and asked him if he would do it and then called the paps to have them waiting
to take photos? MP was in Italy with her just a few weeks later. There is a tweet that verified that. And as is pointed out over and over again, if she didn’t cheat with CM, explain why she lost her entire circle of friends and got blackballed in HW. Straw dogs was her last bigger film and she was cast before the cheating rumors came out. Since then nothing but bit parts and scraps.

@ladybug: I meant the break-up with that line. That it’s very possible they called it quits because it was him who wanted it.
And I agree that essentially we can only speak on our own behalf and when it comes to people we don’t know, all we have is speculation. I can’t rule out the involvement of a third party (in the dog-walking story), nor reject the other scenario you mentioned. Maybe he felt stalked and still did her a favour out of his love for the dog. It just sounds very unlikely to me is all. But that hardly means it’s impossible.
Btw, when I said they must have contacted each other in some way for him to end up walking the dog, I meant over the phone or something along those lines (because I had read on another thread that she was away working at the time). I wasn’t around when it was being hotly debated, but if after Coachella, she had two movies lined up, why do people assume she was stalking him? What happened?

@OMG—-I am sorry to say this, but at this point our posts are not ridiculous, we offer links and examples of various situations, you just came on here to start up the troll nonesense, that was eventually going to happen.
The $hit written in the tabloids about him and her when it was posted by that credible magazine the Enquirer (spelled wrong), was given to them by her or her camp and the items the creature gave them were ridiculous, he is so private and so are his friends, they do not release little items, like her and her people do; the creature thrives on good or bad publicity, anytime KB’s name is mentioned she is in her glory and actually retweets it. I mean come on.
You say that we have feeble minds because we believe about her and Chris Martin, how much proof do you require. He never sued Star magazine as he kept saying for awhile, actually he tried to make it go away, she was totally shut out of a group of friends that the creature had for awhile. The only way she can now get Stella McCartney clothing is off the rack or if Cher gets it somehow for another client and puts the thing in it.
I mean seriously, it is you that seems to have a problem with your mind, if you can not grasp these obvious things that have happened.
Her playing her games with AS on the set of Straw Dogs was very well organized by her and once again her camp, it was perfect timing. He was happy for about 6 months and that was it, but as I have said he is a true gentleman, he probably knew the dog was in a kennel for a long time and took it out for a walk because he is just that way.
KB made sure she knew when this would happen and made sure her paps that she pays were waiting. I mean come on outside a kennel is not exactly a pap hotspot, but we have seen quite a few photos of the creature at the kennel and also at the vets, she just loves any gossip about herself that mention her name.
There is also proof in the fact she was stalking him, the poor guy had to stop going to his favorite places that he had gone to for years, because she kept showing up uninvited, so when ignoring her didn’t work, he had to find new places to go.
MP went with her to Italy, do not forget after MP, Kat C and KB returned from that trip, there was no more producer credit with her name attached to it, and more important no friendship between her and Kat C, you know like I have said another one bit the dust. KB and MP must have tried to worm him into that very personal film of Kat C, that she not only wrote, but directed. I mean Kat C even stayed away from her at that other useless film, with the baby in it, seriously it looked like she wasn’t even allowed to attend te premiere of WWWH. Also, let us not forget that she wasn’t invited to Ryan K’s wedding, that was happening in Italy at exactly the same time they were there, KB also lost Ryan K as a friend.
The majority of us posters have great lives, but this disgusting famewhore has pushed us all to the limit.
She is a smug, self serving void of a person, who is truly a waste of air.
I cannot wait to see what she is going to pull once this “accidental” slip of her engagement dies down, which should be by Monday.

I am sorry my previous post at #131 was so long, but it is so frustrating when these stans come on and just insult us. I know you guys have said to ignore them, but it gets harder and harder because they never offer backup, they cannot even tell us why they like her or anything good the creature has done.
@ladybug (#124)—-RHW is the face of Burberry now, thanks to Cher, all the creature gets is what Cher gives her that her A list clients do not want, Burberry would never have the thing be the face of that company.
It will be interesting to see if she still has Vanessa Bruno and Isabel Marant after this year, we do not know how long her contract is for them each. Calvin Klein sent her to Korea, because she was probably the only one desparate enough to go there, she wasn’t even at their show this year at Fashion Week. Come to think of it, I do not think she went to any fashion shows, except the one in London, with that ugly owl sweater(I think it was either Burberry or Mulberry); and even there Cher took care of RHW not her.
I really do think it is finally over for her, I mean can you go any lower then zlister?

@Sofie: I thought that blind item was about Ryan? Most people speculated that it was about him. In any case, I grew up less than 5 minutes away from AS & he never had a boyfriend.

@S.: Dog walking-they have the same publicist and I’m presuming at that time still had mutual friends who could have contacted either one on behalf of the other.
The dog thing is weird. But AS is an empathetic/sympathetic person, and i can see her playing on that, even for the dog. I also don’t rule out her trying to make it look like they were still together by having him walk the dog at place where he was known to do his running. Which may also play into the idea that the end of the relationship was more PR than the actual relationship (there was the persistent belief that the whole relationship was basically PR for SD).
The stalking rumor comes from both her rumored stalking of OB after their final breakup and her behavior at the end of the AS relationship. Also, I’ll throw in this quote from her interview last October:
“The experience ended up being an epiphany for her. “I realised that, as an only child, I had been craving that feeling of community, that closeness of a large family. When the movie finished filming, I sobbed saying goodbye to everyone. But I’m like that – I get very emotionally connected to people. Perhaps overly so. It’s a kink I’ve had to sort out since.”

@S.: To continue with the possible stalking:
In March of 2011 she was seen papped while displaying a copy of Master and Margarita, which AS has said is a favorite book.
She also appears to have just happened by while AS was having lunch at Joan’s:

http://www.justjared.com/2011/03/22/alexander-skarsgard-joans-on-third-with-kate-bosworth/

The book flashing and ta-ta flashing in Mexico in April were probably more ‘Alex look at me!’ than stalking. Not that he was paying attention.
AS also seemed to stop going to his former haunts, like Joan’s. Of course that could also be because he was now actively avoiding the paps, since he was no longer with someone who really wanted to be papped.
Lainey had an interesting post on the rumored stalking the day of or the day after the breakup announcement. It’s Lainey, so can be taken with a grain of salt, but it does add to the belief that KB had a hard letting go of the relationship.

I hope that she’s allowing herself to be happy with MP. Because she’s got herself a little extra family with he and his family, and that seems to be what she wants now, and wants it with him. And if for some reason it ends they’re all reasonable adults about it and don’t get all weird and stalky about it.

Actually... @ 08/11/2012 at 1:50 pm

@Lilla: I do think that most people thought it was about Ryan. And like I said in post #121 (and Ladybug said in 124), it was probably completely made up anyway so the point is moot.
.
@Ladybug: I didn’t mean to imply that most people thought it was to squash the gay rumors, I was just bringing it up because it was one of the theories at the time and as you had said earlier, the dog walking thing confuses people. I just figured I’d remind people of that theory in the hope that it might end the debate over who dumped whom on this thread. The point was there are several explanations for the dog.
Personally I think he walked the dog for her regularly while she was gone because he’s a nice ex, and the publicist called the paps so he was photographed at that date to remind people that he had a girlfriend. (Even if they had really broken up.) And that’s only because he was never seen with the dog before or since so the timing is a bit suspect. And I don’t think HE cared about the rumors, it was just something the PR team had him do.

@Actually…: Oh, I didn’t think that you thought that dog walking thing was because of the rumors, but Sofie does. Perhaps Sofie is one of those people who thinks everyone in HW is gay.
I think a lot of her PR antics never even got to him, unless his family or friends were paying attention and told him-’Hey, Alex, she’s topless in Mexico!” or something like that. I also wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of her PR antics at that time were done without RB knowing about them in advance.Considering how many clients RB has, I do wonder if KB isn’t at the bottom of the food chain for RB.

@mforman, I forgot about Isabel Marant. Can’t remember whether she went to Feb’s NYC Fashion Week or not. She did go to Berlin’s just a month ago, but even though that was Hugo Boss it does seem a step down.

@Actually…: Make #136 from me, I forgot I was using my friend’s computer this morning. And now I had better go eat breakfast before I do something stupid somewhere else.

@Sofie: Busted! :)

Texas Swede @ 08/11/2012 at 3:05 pm

The dog walking is very confusing. The dog had kennel tags on. Don’t the kennels exercise the dogs while the dogs are in their care? My kennel did. For someone to have walked my dog while I was away on a job the kennel would have had to call me and ask me to have someone come and do it either because she was acting out, becoming aggressive towards the walkers, or sick and contagious and could not be kept there any longer.

So I am inclined to believe KB had to have called him and ask him to get the dog. Hence the pap shots.

We will never know the truth behind it all. But things moved very fast from Coachella on. I will always believe myself that KB started up with MP before the filming started on Big Sur. Not sexually but the flirtation. The same way she was enticing Alex on the set of SD while still with JR. I witnessed that first hand. And to me that is cheating.

Then right after the dog walking we had the ‘Angry confrontation with blue Toyota’. Every one decided it was a paparazzi. I have never thought it was. I always thought it was someone he knew. Have you ever before seen him approach a pap? (Other than at Coachella while under the influence) He is always aloof and walks away. And what are the odds that a paparazzi was following another paparazzi from the opposite direction Alex was traveling? Wouldn’t it make more sense they were following another ‘celebrity’?

Then we had the ‘black eye’ post. Alex is a pacifist. We know he has a temper but he is not violent. I still wonder if some one took a sucker punch at him.

Then he did the ninja trip to San Diego for the July Fourth weekend. He usually spends it with Bjorn and Lisa. I think he did not want to be reminded of the previous year.

I don’t think this is a case of who dumped who. I think he discovered she was doing the same thing to him with MP she had done to JR with him and between them they called it quits.

“The experience ended up being an epiphany for her. “I realised that, as an only child, I had been craving that feeling of community, that closeness of a large family. When the movie finished filming, I sobbed saying goodbye to everyone. But I’m like that – I get very emotionally connected to people. Perhaps overly so. It’s a kink I’ve had to sort out since.”

I think this is a crock of sh*t to make her seem like she has a soul. It”s been noted time and again on JJ and other sites that she seems to dispose of people after they’ve outlasted their usefulness to her. That statement is just another correction in answer to negative posts on JJ, IMO. If she was so attached to people why isn’t she still friends with her Blue Crush co- stars she lived with as a teenager? Young girls often get attached to each other under those situations i.e. the girls from Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants are still friends and show up to support each other. Where were all the people she was attached to during the Nylon party? What happened to her attachment with Kat C? Why didn’t she get attached to any of the hordes of people ( esp.Swedes ) she met through AS? She met people all the years with OB, yet only Cher, her business partner is the only attachment from those 4 years. I think that as an only child, KB is used to being the center of attention and unless the community revolves around her, she could care less of their existence.

Btw, how come her good friend Krysten Ritter hasn’t commented on her and Molish’s future kids like she did with AS?

@Texas Swede (#140)—-I agree with you on the blue car, to this day I think it was either the creature following him or one of her paid for friends, to try and get him to talk to her. A pap would have been leaning out the window and as you said he has never, ever reacted that way to the paps. The person in the car didn’t even want their arm out. Someone (the thing) was following him and he caught them and had enough; it was truly bad enough that he had to stop going to the places he has loved for yrs, for fear of running into the stalker.
I really think he got a call maybe from Robin B, and was told how sad the dog was because it was in the kennel for so long and he felt bad. I think too much is being made of this, he is known to be one of the nicest guys in HW, so I could see him helping out and then RB and KB sold him out to their paid for paps.
I will always believe she started up with MP when she first auditioned, that is one of the reasons, I think it was truly over after that stupid NYLON dinner, she threw herself.
@Lois (#141)—I will always say this, she is one of the most selfish, self serving, smug, voids and waste of air that ever came out of HW. The creature uses people for what they can do for her and when they cannot do anymore or wont do her bidding they are gone. 10 years in this business and not one friend that isn’t on her payroll, how is that possible. KB has someone write these ridiculous statements for her to make about herself and thinks we will buy them, I mean come on already.
Krysten Ritter was her friend only when they made that stupid baby movie together and once again the creature used her to say things about her so called relationship with AS that we all know weren’t true, Krysten Ritter was on the red carpet at the premiere of that film with Kat C, not KB and even at the after party the two of them kept their distance.
The most amazing thing is how we have read how difficult she is to work with, how rude she is not only to co stars (who she cannot use to her benefit) and to the crew, nobody wants to work with her, that is why she has nothing and I mean nothing lined up.
If the attention is all not for her, then she doesn’t care, that is why I cannot wait for Monday, when the “accidental” slip of her engagement will stop being printed. I cannot wait to see what her and Robin B have in store for us next. She needs the publicity and attention like a drug.

@ladybug: Wow, thanx!! That was very detailed!
To tell you the truth, none of that sounds stalkish to me. More like enjoying relatively flaunting her boyfriend and the overall attention. The “private” talk seems to always have been about who she thought she should be in order to be taken seriously, not what she really wanted.

@Lois: I take that ‘emotionally connected’ bit to be a tacit, though perhaps unintentional admission that she might have some stalker tendencies.

I think she does like her friends/bfs, etc. But she also likes what they can give her.

“they’ve outlasted their usefulness to her” Or they figured what she’s really like, some of these HW would still be useful to her, but don’t seem to want to work with her anymore.

It’s the whole clingy/user thing, not a good combination.

@S.: Which part doesn’t sound stalkerish?
I think the book/ta-ta flashing was an attempt to get his attention, since the relationship was basically over. I would call that pathetic, not necessarily stalking.

Calling the paps when you’re out with him is flaunting the relationship, but showing up unannounced hoping you’ll run into him? Stalkerish:

So now that Us Weekly’s reporting it, does that mean Kate’s finally ready to let go? Well, I’ve also heard from multiple and varied contacts that she keeps stalking his hangouts, just, like, dropping by the gym/cafe/whatever to see if he’s around, front like it would be an unplanned encounter, make him realise he misses her and wants her back. Apparently this has worked once. And he didn’t change his mind.

http://laineygossip.com/Articles/Details/20814/Kate-and-Alex-it’s-done

I’m confused by this sentence: “The “private” talk seems to always have been about who she thought she should be in order to be taken seriously, not what she really wanted.”

@mforman: #131: “The majority of us posters have great lives”
Almost 50 years old, no friends, living with her mom… Yes mforman – your life is just great!

@friend—-Very mature, please try to stay on track and get all your facts straight before you post. I have a great life, maybe you do not, you sound very, very bitter.

@ladybug: I sometimes fail to get my points across because I’m not a native speaker, so please bear with me!;) What I meant by that sentence is that despite her repeating over and over again that she wants to keep her private life to herself, she doesn’t really mean it. I don’t know her personally, so I cannot say whether it’s because she wants to share her happiness with the world (as is the case with many people in love) or because she (subconsciously) needs the world to know she’s desirable and “look at who’s in love with me”. It could be either or a little bit of both. But private she’s not, in my opinion. From what I’ve seen, I came to believe that the reason why she keeps saying she wants her privacy is that it is generally considered more decent to be private. The celebrities that do not discuss their personal life are more respected and the public sees them as the exception in Hollywood.
I think she’s always torn between her desire to talk about her boyfriend (OB, AS, MP etc) and the thought that she shouldn’t because if she does she won’t be taken seriously. And as a result of not being self-reflective, she hasn’t separated/sorted out these two in her head: she has convinced herself she is who she thinks she should be/who she would like to be (a.k.a. private) while in essence her desire and tendency is to be talkative (for lack of a better word?). It’s all thrown into sharp relief (at least in my eyes) now that she is with Polish. She comes across as more liberated, as if she doesn’t have to reconcile what she wants with what her boyfriend wants – her current partner doesn’t mind the publicity, so he doesn’t “remind” her that she has to be “serious” and keep it to herself.
Hopefully, that makes sense! I’ll write another post for the stalkerish – and not stalkish;) – part.

@S.: Gotcha! And an excellent post. Which is why Polish is an excellent match for her, he’s fine with her need for attention. He probably thinks it’s an endearing insecurity.

@ladybug: About the stalking.
Well, is she generally reliable, that Lainey gal? You said “take it with a grain of salt” and that it “adds to the belief”. If you don’t already believe her to have stalking tendencies, you won’t change your mind because of Lainey. And if you have reasons to believe she does have stalking tendencies, Lainey won’t really make a difference because you’ll always doubt her credibility. It’s everything else you’ve seen that makes Lainey’s input sound true, not the other way round – if it weren’t for everything else, I get the impression (suffice to say, please correct me if I’m wrong) that you wouldn’t have paid any attention to Lainey at all.
It’s not just about Lainey – it’s about gossip sources in general. If someone cannot be wholly trusted, they cannot be trusted at all, cause even if they’re telling the truth in this case, how can I know? Same goes for the positive things they report.
As for the rest:
I used to follow Bloom (that’s how I know Kate…well…exists!) and although it’s been quite a few years, to be honest, I don’t remember anything I would call stalking-like after their break-up. She had lost a lot of weight (long before the break-up), she generally seemed to be in a bad mental state, and she had found James pretty quickly. Perhaps some people thought she stalked Bloom before getting with James, but these people (Bloom-fans for the most part) already believed Bloom had spent four years with her without actually wanting her! I don’t mean to insult anyone over their opinion, but that’s too “out there” for my taste: It’s one thing to dislike her and another thing to believe Bloom was somehow forced to be with her for four years. You might think that as a Bloom fan, I didn’t want to believe it because I found it offensive to Orlando himself. You’d be right, I’m not pretending to be objective or anything.;) It’s still offensive in my book. If someone thinks you can spend four years with someone you don’t want around you, they essentially believe you have serious issues.
In my opinion, these people wanted to reconcile the irreconcilable. They were looking for ways to prove KB was “unfitting” while simultaneously keeping their idea of Orlando untarnished. In my book, if KB is unfitting, the next question is “What does that say about Orlando? Nothing good. It’s not a few months, it’s years”.
That was long…I’ll come back with a third one…

@ladybug: Thanx! I don’t think Polish sees it as a need, really. I think he’s so besotted with her he believes she warrants the attention and can get it without pursuing it!;)

@ladybug: We agree on the book and Mexico. I don’t think they can be called stalkerish in any way. The book could mean a number of things: It could be a hint for AS, a hint for the part of the public that cared about their relationship, a book AS had simply suggested that she read and she thought “why not? I love to read” or “why not? I’ll appear well-read” – anything really. The Mexico part raises the question of “how do paps know where celebrities will be”. If you think she called them I can’t blame you. I wouldn’t be too quick to agree, but I wouldn’t rule it out either because she doesn’t mind the attention.
“showing up unannounced hoping you’ll run into him?”: Are we sure she was unannounced and that’s what she was hoping for? Again, I appear to be defending her, but it’s not that. It’s just that it’s a somewhat heavy accusation and I’d feel the need to be absolutely certain that she did it to blame her for it, you know? It’s ok if you believe it, I just cannot really bring myself to wholeheartedly concur. This is also due to something else: even if he didn’t want her anymore and she really appeared unannounced hoping she’d see him, I wouldn’t consider it stalking, truth is. Stalking connotes that she can be extremely persistent and even dangerous. For it to be stalking, he would have to have asked her to stay away, as in “I don’t want to see you again”. If he hadn’t said that (or something along those lines), to me she’s just a harmless person hopelessly in love. People in love are capable of doing all sorts of things without doing harm or even coming close to doing harm. Visiting the same places as the object of your affection is kind of “sine qua non” when you’re in love or when you have a crush on someone. The “let’s go there cause that’s where s/he is gonna be” has been the modus operandi of every single person (in my life) that has been in love. It doesn’t matter if it’s unrequited; you (generic here) just want to see her/him and until you fall out of love, you never stop hoping that s/he will reciprocate. It’s sad and you might lose some part of your dignity in the process, but in the vast majority of cases, it doesn’t ever become threatening.
Was she harassing him? I don’t know but it sounds too heavy to me. It would sound too heavy about anyone, not KB in particular. Again, just my 2 cents.;)

@S.: I understand what you mean.
Let me start with Mexico pics-those were deliberate.

“The first thing Kate gets accused of (constantly!) is of being a famewhore, i.e. someone who seeks fame for the sake of it, having no good reason to be getting papped all over the place since, until very recently, she had absolutely zero going on in the career department. So the rumors fly that she, or her PR team, calls the paparazzi to catch her running errands, or going to the movies, to keep her in the public eye. (If you think for a minute that celebs don’t do this, let me disabuse you of that notion: I have a friend who started out as a pap photog and when I proclaimed my disgust for the stalkerazzi, he gently informed me that 99% of the time the tips he got were from the star’s PR team.)”

http://howfamousofyou.com/2011/03/25/note-to-kate-bosworth-fire-your-people/

When she doesn’t want to get papped, she doesn’t get papped.

As for the stalking-have you ever been stalked or know someone who has? Because from personal experience having an ex show up at your work to take you home because he knows you don’t like to take the bus may seem non-threatening, but it is creepy Especially in combination with 1/2 hour voice mail messages about how he misses you. I never felt physically threatened, but my sister was no so lucky-her ex was a violent stalker.
If she was engaging in those behaviors-showing up at his gym, etc., she was definitely harassing him, even if she wasn’t threatening him.
He may not have even used the word ‘stalker’ to himself, but if he didn’t want the attention, it’s harassment. Period.

@S.: My reaction to Lainey is that I enjoy her writing style, and since she is in fact a profession gossip when she writes about the actual business part of gossip/pr it’s very interesting and probably more accurate.
She’s also fickle, and obviously doesn’t like KB. So when I read her each post has to be based on what she’s writing on and how personal vs. professional she is in that post.
The post I linked to, in combination with the post she did a day earlier concerning the photo op with OB, still has to be taken with a grain of salt, it is after all gossip. And part of the reason that post was more believable is that it did fit what we thought we were seeing in terms of her behavior when she was in LA and his behavior.
Could she just be terribly misunderstood and not really stalkerish/clingy at all? Sure. And yet …
As for the relationship with OB, I wasn’t really paying attention to it except for it being mentioned on some of of the LOTR fansites. I’ll say this, I don’t think OB didn’t like her, he was with her on/off for nearly four years, so there was obviously something there, even if inconsistently. And I think AS liked her in the beginning, he seemed really into it the first few months, even with the paps. AS did get criticized for never truly ‘owning’ the relationship that he was quite obviously in.

When it comes to her stalking it is one of the things she is known for.
With OB when he finally left she stalked him daily at the Chateu Marmont. There are photos of her waiting outside for him for hours and reports of her in the lobby trying to see him over and over.
With AS it got worse, she was constantly being spotted at Joans not ordering just looking around, the poor guy had to finally stop going there. He also stopped going to a number of other places that she just would show up at.
We all know he broke up with her once before and because of the stalking he took her back, only to finally get rid of her.
At the beginning of the so called relationship he didn’t mind the paps or being near her, but he got tired of her quickly.
Not only has he never admitted she was his gf, but they never went out alone together, it was like he wanted a buffer there all the time.
The creature is a Stage 5 clinger, he probably wasn’t used to that and kept trying to find ways out, and he finally got rid of that tumor.
MP and his family seem to love famewhoring, it just amazes me, especially allowing photos of his teenage daughter to be tweeted and retweeted. I mean what kind of man doesn’t even follow his own daughter on twitter, he only follows the creature.
Like I have said before he loves KB as much as she loves herself.
Mexico was such a set up, Cher took the topless photos of her and then made sure that Robin B had them circulated, KB tried to steal his day (that was when the trailer for Melancholia was released), I think it was over by then and she thought this might get him back, thank heavens it didn’t.
KB pays a few paps and they sell her photos cheap or they include them with others, the only one that really publishes the photos is JJ, and that is because of their relationship.
When the biggest news is the fact you a grocery shopping, you know your career is done and hers is.

Regarding the dog and the Kennel tags, he may have been listed as a contact…someone the dog was familiar with and the kennel may have called him. I’ve been the contact for my friend’s dog while it was at the kennel and I’ve been allowed to go see Greta and walk her if I want because I’m on the contact list. That could just be what happened there. Sometimes it’s nice for the animal to have contact with people they’re familiar with while their owners are away. A lot of kennels appreciate that because it can help with the pet’s anxiety.

If KB had a ‘plan’ to have her engagement continue to make news for awhile, that’s pretty much dead in the water, since Jennifer Anniston and Justin Theroux are now engaged.

@ladybug:
LOL no kidding, that pretty much blows things out of the water.

Texas Swede @ 08/12/2012 at 10:44 pm

@ladybug: She copied the ‘life partner ring’ thing from them didn’t she?

@Texas Swede: I don’t know when JA and JT started wearing their rings, but I’ve heard that before, that MP and KB were copying that.

I’m going to meaner than usual here. Here’s an excerpt from James Marsden, who’s done two movies with KB:

Does he like enjoy acting with non-existent presences (Hop & Enchanted)? “As an actor it’s always better to have something or someone you can see and hear rather than having to imagine. Doing scenes opposite tennis balls on tripods or little pieces of green tape doesn’t really satisfy the artist in me. And it makes you feel a bit crazy, talking to nothing. But it’s a skill set that we have to have these days as more and more films incorporate digital elements.”

Is he talking about CGI or acting opposite KB?

@ladybug: I’m sorry you had to go through that and what your sister went through sounds even worse! I hope it’s all over now and neither of you will be subjected to anything like that again! I don’t envy you, that’s for sure. I’ve never been stalked…at least, that I know of!
If AS asked KB to stay away from him and she behaved like your ex, I’d call it harassment too. If he asked her to stay away and she kept showing up before him in various places she didn’t use to visit before getting involved with him, that would be harassment and stalking too. But if she tended to visit those places anyway or if she had grown to like some of them and we know she went there, let’s say, three times in a month, I wouldn’t call it stalking or harassment, to be honest. I once happened to bump into an ex twice in a week, only a few days after he had broken up with me. And it was completely unintentional, because the first time was on a Monday (he never went out on Mondays!) and as for the second one, I had good reason to believe he would be at a birthday party. Truth is my experience doesn’t apply completely in this case, because I definitely didn’t want to see him while KB might have wanted to see AS. Still, what if my ex had thought I was harassing or stalking him? Should the places where I saw him be off the table for me so that my ex doesn’t (wrongly) feel harassed?
You’ve had a bad personal experience and I haven’t (God knows I’m thankful for it…), and you’ve also seen your sister have to deal with something even worse, while I know no-one who has been through anything like that. That’s why I try to avoid making assumptions about why people say what they say (“jealous, fat, etc”); unless they tell you, you can never know where they’re coming from. Perhaps we’d see it differently even if we knew all the details about KB’s behaviour. You’ve seen clingy exes turn into creepy (to say the least) stalkers. You are more alert to stalker-behaviour signs.
“When she doesn’t want to get papped, she doesn’t get papped.” : Well, we can agree that’s relatively rare!;P But I think she just likes it. I don’t know why but I find it kind of hard to believe she has them on speed-dial and calls them on herself. I can see her publicist asking her where she’ll be, calling them and then her willingly playing along instead of saying no (like someone who really doesn’t like it would do). She defintely enjoys it most of the time, there’s no doubt about that. She glaringly uses it to advertise Jewelmint, so even if no-one calls them, sometimes she consciously chooses to go where they are certain to be.

@S.: “Should the places where I saw him be off the table for me so that my ex doesn’t (wrongly) feel harassed?”

Which is one of the reasons he stopped going to placed he’d gone to before, like Joan’s. But if she was also showing up at places where she didn’t normally go, like his gym, then she’s harassing him.

And it also depends on how the relationship ended, and how it was during. If it ended on good terms then seeing your ex, or he seeing you, wouldn’t be considered harassment. Uncomfortable, yes, but harassing, no.

Do I think she calls the paps? Yeah, I do. Perhaps Robin B or a minion do as well, but I really don’t think she’s that high on Robin’s totem pole anymore for RB to keep doing that. She doesn’t always have to call the paps, LAX has at least two full time paps there, and some places like Chateau Marmont, etc, are known pap hangouts. So if you want to get papped without having to call them, you know where to go.
I don’t hate her, though obviously I’ll mock her a lot. I fell sorry for her sometimes. But I’m not as lenient or accepting of her behavior either. She’s a grown woman. And she knows she’s not liked, but it’s not just because of who she’s dated or that she’s perceived to be a famewhore. Or that she’s too skinny.
I know she thinks that she’s got to promote JM somehow, and that perhaps getting papped is part of her job description, but she’s not done anything in years to make her be one of those celebrities who don’t have to call the paps. Do something to change that dynamic. Try at not being so try-hard.

@ladybug:
Exactly, some celebs are just followed around by paps because they are so high profile, see Brange, Kristen Stewart, Pattinson, etc. KB is nowhere near them in terms of fame. She’s like Vanessa Hudgsens or Miley Cyrus, she either goes to where she knows the paps are, or someone tips them off. She’s not even big enough profile to make shows like TMZ. The Kardashians have more Hollywood pull than KB.

@Macy: She’s in something of a bind, she’s not famous enough to get papped on her own, and acting jobs seem few and far between and not likely to get her any more fame from that end. She’s not with someone famous. And yet, as the ‘face’ of JM she does have to have exposure. So she has to make sure she gets papped, even if that means showing up at pap hotspots or calling them. Which annoys most of those who pay attention. I know a ot of JM customers probably don’t follow her on the gossip sites, if they follow her at all.
I still think since she’s not acting she should take a couple of college classes this fall, it’s still time before the semester/quarter starts! Take a business class, an art class, a psych class (she’s mentioned wanting to be a psychiatrist). And best off, she shouldn’t tweet about it. At all. Just do it.

@ladybug—I get what you are saying about being the face of JM, but even that is not the same as it once was. When was the last time in one of her pap set ups did she have on any JM pcs. It is like all of a sudden the only time she has the jewlery on is in those stupid commercials.
I have not one doubt in my mind she calls the paps, she probably has one or two that she always calls and knows all the places to go that they stake out; she might not be high on Robin B’s client list, but they have something between them like her and Cher used to (paid for friends), Cher has stopped, soon it will be Robin B and then I would love to see what she does then.
I understand what you guys have said about the stalking, but I definitely believe that KB did exactly that to AS, because she did the same thing to OB, that is her personality, what she is known for like the famewhoring. There were too many incidents that occurred with her trying to get him back, there were even reports of her drunk dialing him at all hours of the night. KB figured it worked once, and she kept pushing him thinking it would work again. Thank goodness he wised up.
You would think that at her age she would try and make some changes, but she just keeps behaving the same way and it is even more embarassing now.

@ladybug:
Well I guess any press is good exposure for her at this point, whether people like her or not. She wants to keep herself in the papers and calling paps helps with that even if it’s just for promoting JM. That’s really all she seems to have these days since she isn’t getting any acting work. Somehow I think that’s why the JM commercials have changed to what they are, that they are trying to showcase her “acting” or “arty” abilities. Neither of which she has an abundance of.
Ha! She wouldn’t take an real college class. Not enough exposure for her. She’d rather be papped going to an “art class” or “acting class” than real bonafide learning.

@Macy: “She wouldn’t take an real college class.” But she was accepted into Princeton! She reads books! She’d love it. Also, she can pick up fashion tips.
As for the JM ‘films’ I hadn’t notice that they were trying to showcasing her ‘acting’, I’d say I should watch again to check that out, but I don’t want to subject myself to many viewings of their home videos.

@ladybug:
Well I wouldn’t say her acting outright, but more like a documentary type deal, especially this last one. Perhaps the 20′s one was like an audition. Either way, they have become decidely different than the first couple and not in a good way.
Uh huh, too bad Princeton booted her because she deferred too many times. Like seriously, why even apply if you know you’re not going to ever go? Just to brag I guess.

I’m glad S. is offering a different point of view than some of the regulars here. Some posters forget they’re conjecturing and take it as fact. The KB stalking OB chatter came from a picture of KB at OB’s gate at the Chateau. However, someone who had worked at the Chateau said she was there to get Lila who was with Sidi. No stalking – just picking up her dog. There is absolutely no reason whatsoever to believe KB stalks AS. I think the reports that she broke up with AS are true. Since when do you stalk the person you with whom you no longer want to be in a relationship? Are there pictures of her at his gym? I haven’t seen anything like that.
Kate lives in a canyon where other celebs live and the paps wait at the bottom of the canyon to follow their cars. My friend lives in the same canyon and I see paps parked on a side street. That’s how it’s so easy for them to follow and photograph Kate and others. OB lives in the neighboring canyon and they park on side streets near his house too. They’ll follow OB into the hills when he wants to bike ride.
BTW, the tags Lila is wearing in the picture with Alex are dog tags. Not kennel tags.

@Tulip: “Some posters forget they’re conjecturing and take it as fact”. Oh, we know we’re conjecturing, which is why I’ve been careful to qualify my statements on whether or not she was stalking.
However, you’ve also been known to do a lot of conjecturing, particularly when making statements concerning KB’s relationship with GP, and claiming that they have had dinner together and that KB and GP were at the same table at this year’s Met Gala, while offering no proof.

“Kate lives in a canyon where other celebs” I think the key words are other celebs. Why would they follow her on their own, she’s not even c-list. Yes, she’ll get papped w/o having to call them. But as already mentioned repeatedly, it’s because she goes where the paps are-Joan’s, etc.

@Tulip:

So you know someone that works at Chateau Marmont who KNEW exactly why KB was there. You also know someone who lives at the bottom of the canyon that KB lives in and tells you that reporters hang out there waiting for Z listers. Okay.

Btw, can your friend tell me where Big Foot lives?

Oh yeah, I know someone that knows someone that might have maybe seen The Tooth Fairy cheating on the Easter Bunny with Santa.

@Tulip: KB is that you? LOL! You sure know a lot of people in the know. Too bad you have no actual proof other than saying you know.

Here’s the thing, if producer’s & director’s were interested in her, she’d be working. Paps do hang out at people’s houses waiting for them to leave. There are tons of celebs that live in that area, so by default, if it’s a slow day, they’ll follow her (or she’ll call them). She’s been around long enough to know how to avoid the paps, she just doesn’t want to.

As for the dog walking photo, that’s PR at work. It kept people talking and asking WTF?! I’ve had lengthy conversations with my dad (who is a PR person in HW) about why studios think it will generate sales if the stars are dating. I personally think it’s the opposite in most cases. (I do believe they were a real couple, but not for 2 years) For whatever reason, the team wasn’t ready to admit this relationship was over, so they threw that random photo op out there to make people believe they were still together & generate buzz. Why did he go along with it? He may not have had a choice.

@Jeannie:
Even with the decent reviews for WWWH she’s not appeared to be close to anything but the Lifeguard.
The two year thing was gossip laziness, they were simply going from the time of the start of filming and the timing of the announcement, not the actual wording of the announcement (and that wasn’t even two years).
The dog walking was PR, at least on her part. I’ve always thought the last few months of the relationship and the 3 months after were PR, and however the relationship ended, and however she was actually behaving toward him, he played along with it. Of course he’d also never publicly admitted to dating her, and so also probably didn’t feel like announcing the end of something he’d never admitted to.I don’t think he was forced into it, though he probably didn’t like it. I suspect that ended when he found out about MP.

@ladybug: I’m thinking the good reviews for WWWH are a little too late. Once you develop a reputation, it’s hard to shake it. I have heard that she was really nice on the Big Sur set, read into that however you choose.

Everything I’ve heard has said that they were over before Coachella. You can’t get out of certain contractual obligations, which is probably why they went “together”, but actually showed up & left separately. Also, take into account the tweets from that time, most were of the fight, a small few were “oh they’re so cute & seem so into each other”. They would be PR plants. My friend was there the whole weekend & said they barely spoke, when they did, it was heated. I keep hearing about the bar fight in Sweden being the beginning of the end. Although they appeared to have “gotten back together” after, it didn’t last very long.

@Jeannie:
I agree with you, and she was probably nicer on the set of Big Sur because she wanted to impress MP. Same with the Straw Dogs set, I’m sure she wanted to impress there too. When you want someone to like you, you try really hard to showcase your best attributes first but the real you comes creeping in eventually. The veneer wears off and people find out who they are really with after a few months.
I think it was over long before then too. I’ve always felt they did date, but that a certain amount of it was PR for the movie as well. There’s no secret that kind of thing exists in Hollywood and has for years. Studios force their hands in the hope of making more profit and they will do many things to get their way. There are even marriages based on career goals and creating an image for branding. All kinds of shenanigans happen there that I’m sure if we really knew would blow our socks off. It’s a whole other world that normal people can’t even begin to imagine.
So the bar fight would have been in the summer when everyone first thought they’d broken up. The remaining few months was mostly begrudging PR stuff and commitments because he barely acknowledged her presence after that.

@Macy: I’ll say this, and you know that most of my family is in the entertainment business, I have NO clue why people want to be famous, to me, the money isn’t worth it. You really do sell your soul.

@Jeannie: I’d really rather be rich than famous.
And yet there are people in the acting business who can become successful (in whatever why they term successful) without selling out (or selling out too much).
And that is one of the complaints about KB, she seems to have wanted the fame more than actually working on her ‘art.’

@ladybug: Me too. Most of the time, it’s easy to tell the ones who love what they do, as opposed to those that are in it for fame. I admire the ones who don’t believe their own hype, because it’s not easy. When you are constantly surrounded by “yes” people, it’s hard to stay grounded, especially if your foundation isn’t solid to begin with.

@Jeannie:
It would seem that way for a lot of people, especially those that don’t have enough fame built up to command their own game. I’m sure people like Clooney and Pitt had to do things at first, but now I think they are in charge of their own things a lot more than some of their contemporaries. Straw Dogs was the first American movie role for some people, and for others it was a way to get their names back out there after bad reviews. Lots of PR fodder when you have those things combined. It’s a brutal world there it seems.

@ladybug:
Agreed, she wants the perks and to be talked about more than she is actually willing to earn it and the respect of her peers.

@Jeannie (#176)—–You are so right in everything that you said. Her reputation was fixed years and years ago and it has only gotten worse and worse. I am sure KB was friendly on the set of Big Sur because of MP, that is the game she plays, when she wants attention and we all know that MP was giving her alot of attention; but everyone in HW knows her true colors that is why she hasn’t gotten any credible work in ages. The creature is known as a pariah, who is box office poison, she is extremely difficult to work with and treats everybody like they are beneath her.
Think about this not one co star has ever said anything nice about her, ever, she doesn’t even have one friend from a film she worked on or that just work in this business anymore (especially after what she did to GP), because of how she treats people and what she is like. One perfect example is Krysten Ritter, KB and her acted like friends when they were filming that baby movie and once filming was done that was it, they didn’t even pose on the red carpet together, she should be humilated but she doesn’t care because she loves herself so much, she thinks there is nothing wrong with her. How sad. Kevin Spacey and Ryan K have even stopped helping her.
I will always believe that AS and KB were finally done after that ridiculous NYLON dinner in which no one went to and AS stayed as far from her as possible. Remember the US Weekly and NY Post and Perez Hilton all came out with the “rough patch” story right after that night. I believe AS had Robin B release that statement to let people know he was done, especially because Rod L, was still posting those stupid tweets, he stopped once that article came out and I think that was the point.
AS is a true professional, he kept up doing his professional obligations, like Coachella, even though as you said and I have also read, all they did was fight and not talk to each other, it got so bad Cher had to get involved.

@Jeannie:
I didn’t know that you had a lot of family in the industry. I bet they could tell you some stories about some of the crazy things that happen on and off sets. I think a lot of actors are basically insecure people and want attention and to be noticed so they will do a lot of things to make that happen, even if they don’t necessarily agree with them. I think that’s probably why drugs are so prevalent. People probably medicate themselves to deal with some of the things they’ve done through (like casting couches, etc).

@Jamie:
That’s probably true to a certain degree. Studio execs coule have very well stated that it’s nice to have a career in Europe but Europe isn’t the US and isn’t that what the actors want? To make it in Hollywood? At the center of it, yes. Oh sure, art house European films are great but they dream of the big piece of the pie…at least most of them do. That’s why a lot of them make the move to the US. KB, even though she has had crap reviews for Superman Returns did a lot of stupid PR stuff before and even after that….long before SD. She’s a willing participant, I bet she doesn’t need to be coerced much at all. She seemed to lap up the attention she got with that.

@ladybug:
But she took that art class once. LOL! And she dropped Jasper off and watched her acting class. She cares about art! She does!

There is only one reason why Alex and KB got “back together” after their fight in Sweden. Jewelmint! They brought him in to launch jewelmint in October 2010 and we got the infamous Broken Bells video. He is the reason why KB got Cotton, Vanessa Bruno and most likely Jewelmint. Let’s not forget that Alex is also a client of RB. And I suspect he’s moving fairly high on the list. She may have used his name attached to KB to help her get the attention needed to land those campaigns. It’ll be interesting to see if she does another Vanessa Bruno film. The first one was so Swedish inspired and the man at the end looked so much like Alex that it wasn’t difficult to figure out what they were going for. After the last Sweden trip, we never saw Alex alone with her. Always buffered by lots of friends. I suspect he had a contractual obligation to fulfill and he bolted as soon as he could. She has literally fallen off the HW radar without him attached to her. No wonder she clung on so tightly. It wasn’t love, it was desperation. The fact that he doesn’t “own” that relationship speaks volumes. He is very respectful and proud of his friends and family, he would have given her the proper due if she was very significant in his life.
I just remember the terror on his face at Chateau Marmont when the paps asked him about KB and Alex was cornered by fans. He threw the pen down and ran. Not exactly the actions of someone proud of his GF, more like someone who is a bad liar and doesn’t want to lie.

A thought occurred to me while reading a previous post, How can we be sure that the photos of Alex walking her dog were taken when they said?
They could have just released a random photo of Alex with the dog and claimed that it was recent to keep the story going.

I’m trying to respond back to everyone, sorry if my response is choppy or doesn’t make sense! Yeah, I’ve got lots of stories. My family’s been in the business for years. Every up & coming actor has to pay their dues, so to speak & you really have to decide whether or not it’s worth it. I don’t think people realize what they sign up for. Sure, there’s perks, but there’s also a lot of crap. I’ve seen first hand the damage that it can do to someone, and we’ve lost some amazing talent way too soon. As for them being insecure in general, yes. Some far more than others. I don’t have an exact end date for them & probably never will, but it seems like it wasn’t that long after her birthday. I’ve only met him a handful of times & I’ve got a great BS meter. He seems genuine. When you talk to him, he makes eye contact & you have his full attention. That’s rare. He embarrasses easily (which shocked me & made me want to make him blush more, he even made himself blush) & he’s got a great sense of humor. To use words others have said about him, he’s humble & adorkable. If I missed something, I’m sorry!

@The fat lady is singing:
The thing in October was totally PR for JM. They’d broken up during the summer and then he obviously got sucked back in for a few months. I’m thinking that’s what Lainey was talking about when she said that KB hanging around his haunts worked the first time, but not again in the spring. They weren’t seen together for 2 months in the summer, then JM comes out and suddenly it’s all the time and he looks totally unhappy. Her birthday pap set up photo, when he took like 15 other Swedes with him says a lot. He barely spent time with her after that.

@Jeannie:
The original release for SD was supposed to be a lot sooner, around Feb I think so maybe his original obligations were over by then and he didn’t have to take it to the spring/summer before the release. Would make sense that he barely spent time with her after that and started his exit.

@The fat lady is singing (#185)—That is an excellent point you make about the dog walking incident, I never thought of that. We have no way of knowing when those photos were taken. That was truly an awesome thought and one that I find incredibly believable, that is how her famewhoring works, sad isn’t it.
Your point about JM is interesting. Now that I think of it, when they first put out these small videos introducing JM, they purposely make mention of a pair of earrings that the creature wore to the TB premiere that year. There was no reason for that, but they pulled her so called relationship into it. Once again so sad.
The Vanessa Bruno ad was just as ridiculous as the JM commercials, my favorite besides all of a sudden them going Nordic, was when KB said she did all her own stunts and stood in that tree without a harness, llike anybody believed any of that. I will find it very interesting to see if Vanessa Bruno signs her again, because I do not think she does ads for Isabel Marant, she just wears alot of her clothing.
Robin B of course kept putting her name with AS. He was and still is the bigger star from the start and because of KB using him as she usually does with people, she got more work and more publicity than she had gotten in a long time.
Does anyone else find it interesting that the creature hasn’t gotten any work since AS dumped her anorexic, botex a*s.
To be honest, I do not recall AS ever being alone with KB, it always seemed like he had his friends with him, even if JJ would crop them out of the photos. I loved reading that she invited herself on that second trip to Sweden, he was busy filming and she just decided to go. My favorite part is how they had the huge blow up at the Way Out Music Festival, because she was unhappy that she wasn’t being treated like a VIP. This creature just thinks the sun rises and sets on her, her desparation just grows and grows.
You are right again in the fact he never, ever not even by accident, referred to her as anything but a co star and that was just in the publicity for SD. It is like he just doesn’t want to remember any of it, even the beginning when I think he was into her, but I think that died after 6 months, but he kept up his obligations, because he is a true professional. AS going to the SD premiere before KB and leaving before she got to the red carpet says it all.
Whenever we saw photos of them, I always felt so bad, he just looked so sad and miserable and made sure to be extremely far ahead of her, that is why it was so amazing when after she left Coachella, his smile was back and he looked like the AS we all know and love, the amazing transformation was enough to take your breath away.
@Jeannie—-One of the reasons I have been a fan of his for as long as I can remeber is because you can just tell he is geniue, humble and a great guy that really wants to get to know his fans and takes the time to talk to you if you talk to him. He is geniue in his acting and in his life with his family and friends, that is one of the reasons I think he has such a loyal group of friends. I love everything you have said about him, it truly does confirm everything I have thought about him, I would have loved to be in your shoes just once to see him blush, it must have been absolutely adorable. You are a lucky lady.

Whatever the deal was with KB…AS boldly went were many men had been before….that says a lot about him, whether he was played, went along for PR or whatever. IMO, KB reflects very poorly on him.

Kate Bosworth Announces Engagement, Media Picks It Up A Week Late
Kate Bosworth made a huge announcement, accidentally or otherwise, on a recent blog post chronicling her summer vacation last week. Namely, that she is engaged to be married.
“On our first day in Seoul, my fiancé, Michael Polish, and I venture out to discover Changdeokgung Palace. As soon as we enter, it is like magically being transported to a different world—this awe-inspiring, sprawling place was originally built in 1405. We explore ancient towers, pavilions, and the beautiful “secret gardens,” and the feeling is serene, peaceful, and ancient,” says Bosworth in Vogue’s Summer Travel Diaries, Part One.
Wait, what? Bosworth is engaged and just nonchalantly threw that in there?
Though she accidentally let something so major slip on a blog post about her recent trip to South Korea, it may surprise some readers that Bosworth has actually been seeing Michael Polish, a film director, since meeting him on the set of Big Sur, a film due out later this year. They were spotted indulging in much PDA at a Coldplay concert in August 2011, confirming their couple-hood to anyone who may have been paying attention.
Prior to shacking up with Polish, the 29-year-old Bosworth was linked with actor Alexander Skarsgard. The couple dated for nearly two years before finally calling it quits in 2011, reports MSN. A few months later, Bosworth met Polish, and the rest is history.
This latest development was a near-miss for us folks in the media. The blog post on Vogue is dated August 1st. It is August 8th as of this posting.
Sorry! But congratulations to Kate Bosworth on her engagement either way.
Guys, I wanted to share this with you, it seems the Inquisitr, is the first of many that will start to admit this annoucement was a “hit and miss” by the media. My favorite part is how they say it was either said accidentally or otherwise (on purpose, perhaps). I cannot wait to see what comes next.

@The fat lady is singing: As for the dog walking pics, while there’s a pr element to them, if there was a delay, I don’t think it would be anymore than JJ sometimes does, which isn’t more than a few days. I don’t think they needed that sort of deviousness for this particular pap set.

It’s been more than a week since the media picked up on the ‘engagement’, and yet she’s not been papped sporting an engagement ring? I’m sort of disappointed.

@ladybug:
She’s probably shopping for some kind of exclusive by a tabloid to print the first photos of it…along with the new JM bridal collection. LOL

@Macy: They could surprise everyone by going the private route, but I see her trying to get some beach wedding in Tulum, styled by Cher. And they’ll tweet about the whole thing.

@Lois (I think): I never said I knew someone at Chateau Marmont who said KB was there to pick up her dog. I don’t know anyone who works there. Someone posted it a long time ago at JJ or maybe imdb. I do know someone who lives in the same canyon as Kate.

@Tulip:
So then you don’t in fact, have any concrete evidence as to what she was doing at the Chateau when OB was there. You’re merely speculating based on something you read….which you usually chastise others for. Alrighty then.

Tulip (#193)—-There were reports of OB trying to hide from her. That dog story came out after the paps caught her there hanging around, calling him loud enough for them to hear her for hours, it had nothing to do with the dog. KB was also reported numberous times in the lobby of the Chateau trying to “accidentally” run into him. Did you ever wonder why he got out of there very quickly. After these stalking stories came out it was then said she dumped him because of his friends.
Everybody knows she is the one that gets dumped, but you know being as private as she is, she isn’t the one releasing the stories that it is her that always does the dumping, my god she is such a disgusting creature.
This is her MO, she does this, she stalks, looses extreme weight, looks more pathetic than usual, to try and win the ones that “she dumped” back. Come on, even you have to see the pattern with her.
Look at what she did to AS, how many pictures did JJ print of her going to Joans all of a sudden and getting carry out lunches or going there with one of her paid friends. He has stayed away from the Chateu until recently, he probably figured she wouldn’t show up there.
I am still wondering how many favors Robin B called in to get her invited to the Vanity Fair Oscar party this year, she knew AS would be there, this girl has problems. AS was of course invited as he should be, she on the other hand cannot get invited to a tupper ware party without Robin B selling out some of her A listers. Remember Robin B probably feels she owes KB for getting both OB and AS and who knows who else to sign with her, I am waiting for AS to dump her and get a publicist that will work with him, not sell him out.

@mforman: I agree. I hope he finds another publicist. I noticed RB doesn’t really promote privacy for her clients. I know Ryan Gosling is also one of her clients, and all I hear about now is details about his relationship with Eva Mendes. There’s more articles about his personal life than about his professional life. Same seems to go for Alex. That doesn’t always work in their favor.

@jesse: I think if he was going to dump her he’d have done so already. And since the end of the KB relationship he’s been more low key and less papped. As for RG, I suspect that’s more Eva’s publicist than RG.

About Robin Baum: since Johnny Depp is one of her major clients, I think she’s been really busy dealing with him for a long time. I don’t think she has much time to deal with a little fish like KB at the moment. JMO.

Whycantipost @ 08/18/2012 at 7:18 pm

Sometimes I wonder if her weightloss is a strategy to get a guy back. After every breakup/endstages of a relationship she gets very thin, and looks a little more healthy when she is with someone. Is it some kind of strategy to make the guy feel bad, since he can see her physical pain for losing him?
Sometimes she looks like she is about to die, her exes/boyfriends in the endstage of relationship must see this too. Maybe she does it to gain their sympathy, it makes them worried and feel sorry for her; they stay with her/take her back.
Maybe that’s what also attracted MP; a sad little skinny girl needing help; ‘my bf doesn’t love me, boohooo, i can’t eat because of all the stress’. Some men are into that; male Florence Nightingale-complex. Didn’t Alex once mention he is into troubled souls? ;)

@Whycantipost: What you said makes sense. I think that could have been the reason he dated KB. I could not figure out any other logical reason for it.

@Whycantipost: I do believe her that there’s stress involved (in 2006 she had more going on than just the end of the OB relationship). But I do believe that she also uses it as you describe, it’s another ‘poor fragile KB’ ploy.

Whycantipost @ 08/19/2012 at 7:45 pm

@martine:
Since she is so skinny I guess she likes to have things in her mouth that don’t contain calories… Just getting a taste won’t make u fat ;)
Oh no, I didn’t! xD
