Is Keira Knightley pregnant?
Meanwhile, Dr Dre is Forbes' highest-paid musician, Emma Watson breaks up with her boyfriend and Rebel Wilson eyes Ghostbusters remake
Keira Knightley may be pregnant
If you have been paying attention, Keira Knightley has been wearing fuller dresses to events in recent weeks, the latest being the Moet British Independent Film Awards. On top of that, word has it that she has been staying off alcohol. This can only mean one thing, right? She's pregnant, people. Duh.
Rumours and coincidences aside, it would be great news for Keira and her husband, James Righton if the British actress is indeed expecting. If not that, then she's still got plenty to be excited about career-wise, as the 29-year-old has been nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the Golden Globes Awards for her portrayal of code-breaker Joan Clarke in The Imitation Game. Oscars (and possibly motherhood?), here comes Keira.
Beyoncé isn't the highest-paid musician this year. Dr. Dre is
2014 was not a tough year for Dr. Dre, at least not monetarily. Thanks to the sale of his electronics brand Beats to Apple for $3 billion, the music producer has earned $620 million, the biggest pay cheque received in a year for any musician in history.
Coming in second on Forbes' Highest-Paid Musicians 2014 list is Beyoncé, who would naturally be expected to top that list if Dr. Dre hadn't sold his business. However Queen Bey's income doesn't even match a quarter of Dr. Dre's earnings. At $115 million, the Pretty Hurts singer steers clear of third place, where The Eagles sit with their $100 million. The rest of the Top 10 is filled by (in ranked order) Bon Jovi, Bruce Springsteen, Justin Bieber, One Direction, Paul McCartney, DJ Calvin Harris and country singer Toby Keith.
Emma Watson and her boyfriend have broken up
It looks like Emma Watson's career schedule and her Oxford University rubgy player boyfriend, Matthew Janney's studies can't get along. The British actress and the 22-year-old student have split up after a year together. According to The Daily Mail, Emma's representative said the decision was "amicable" and, despite earlier rumours, the pair had not moved in together.
The Harry Potter film franchise in which Emma and her co-stars found fame ended in 2011. However, Emma has not been slowing down since, having moved on to projects including The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Bling Ring and Noah. She can be seen next in the thriller Regression, with Ethan Hawke, and German drama film Colonia Dignidad opposite Daniel Brühl. What a busy bee.
Rebel Wilson could be in the Ghostbusters reboot
Funny girl Rebel Wilson has a knack for "crushing it", so after films like Bridesmaids, Pitch Perfect and Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, what's next for the Australian star?
If all goes well, Ghostbusters, probably. And maybe even future Night at the Museum sequels, if she "sees the money truck."
"I have had a meeting," she said on the Today show when asked about the Paul Feig-helmed Ghostbusters. Rebel noted that she'd like to see the script first, but added that "I would even do that without the money truck... I'd do that for free. Yeah, I probably shouldn't say that live on TV."
"I already know the song, I'm ready," she said, without missing a beat. (Hear that, Paul?)
Tyra Banks gets sued by former ANTM contestant
Angelea Preston was supposed to win the 17th cycle of America's Next Top Model, but when CW producers found out that she used to work as an escort, she was disqualified from the competition. For that, the 28-year-old model is suing the show and Tyra Banks for $3 million, citing a breach of contract.
The 17th season saw 14 non-winning contestants from previous seasons return for the special all-star cycle, with Angelea representing Cycle 14.
People reports that the legal documents filed on 10 December state that Angelea had already been set to win the coveted $100,000 CoverGirl contract and Vogue Italia spread, but the decision was promptly reversed (and the episode re-filmed) after the discovery. Fifth cycle contestant Lisa D'Amato was named winner instead.
Angelea's suit also seeks damages for emotional distress and for the fact that the contestants weren't given meals or enough breaks during filming.
