Gwyneth calls ex Chris Martin ‘father of the year’
Barely a week since news broke that Chris Martin and Jennifer Lawrence’s short-lived summer romance is over, there’s already speculation that Chris is on the verge of reuniting with Gwyneth Paltrow. The pair announced they were ending their 11-year marriage in March, but these days they seem as friendly as ever.
Last week, Chris made a surprise appearance at the AmfAR gala in Los Angeles, which Gwyneth was hosting. She introduced her ex (although they are yet to divorce) in gushing terms: “This brilliant singer-songwriter has sold 8 million records. He has won every single award there is to be won, especially Father of the Year, which he has won consecutively since 2004. I am speaking of Chris Martin.” Do we spy a flame rekindling?
Jennifer Lopez says Ben Affleck broke her heart
Every woman has one that got away – and beautiful megastars like Jennifer Lopez are no exception. In an interview with the Today show Jennifer spoke in detail about her past relationships, describing the ending of her engagement to actor Ben Affleck as “probably [her] first big heartbreak” (ouch to her previous two husbands). J.Lo went on to marry Marc Anthony, who she admits in a frank moment was actually sort of a rebound. Happens to the best of us.
But after all those ons and offs, J.Lo has garnered a fair bit of relationship wisdom, which she generously shared. “What you need to know is, nobody can save you or heal you. Only you can do that for you.” As for future loves? The “First Love” singer is taking time out for herself. “I’m open to love but right now, I think it’s better to just be on my own for a minute and learn more about myself.”
Keira Knightley says stay home
Keira Knightley has some advice for young actors who want to build up the kind of aura and career longevity that she has – stay home. “Personally as an actor, I think that if you’re out all the time and you’re going to absolutely everything then people don’t actually notice when you have something to promote,” she said during promotion for her latest film, The Imitation Game, co-starring Benedict Cumberbatch. “Whether that’s a charity or a film, if you’re a blanket ‘there’, then what you really care about can get lost.”
Is Meryl Streep as cold as her character on The Devil Wears Prada?
Our November cover girl, Anne Hathaway, made a surprising reveal about her The Devil Wears Prada co-star Meryl Streep on The Graham Norton Show in the UK. Anne said she’d love to do a sequel to the hit flick, but that Meryl can be a bit of an “ice queen” at work. Although she described the legendary actress as “the most amazing, magical, warm person,” Anne said Meryl remained in (icy) character throughout filming.
“When I met her she gave me a huge hug and I’m like, ‘Oh my god, we are going to have the best time on this movie,’ and then she’s like, ‘Ah sweetie, that’s the last time I’m nice to you.’ She then went into her trailer and came out the ice queen and that was really the last I saw of Meryl for months, until we promoted the film.” But then, it’s Meryl – the genius who specialises in tough-as-nails characters such as Miranda Priestly and Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady. Just getting into character then. Watch the full Graham Norton episode, which also featured Matthew McConaughey and Lena Dunham.
