Jude Law set to be a dad again
Congratulations are in order – Jude Law is about to be a father for the fifth time. The 41-year-old star and ex-girlfriend Catherine Harding are expecting a child in spring next year.
In a statement to People magazine a rep of the actor said, “I can confirm that Jude Law and Catherine Harding are expecting a child together in the spring. Whilst they are no longer in a relationship, they are both wholeheartedly committed to raising their child.”
He added, “They consider this a private matter and other than this confirmation no statement will be made. I ask that you respect the privacy of all parties involved and their families.”
Jude already has two sons and a daughter with ex-wife Sadie Frost and a daughter with model Samantha Burke.
A very pregnant Zoe Saldana wants sexy compliments, please
Elsewhere, Zoe Saldana, who’s expecting twins, is pointing out that people shouldn’t shy away from complimenting women on their looks when they’re pregnant.
On The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson this week, she talked about what it means to her to be told she's sexy during pregnancy. “People think that they’re not supposed to compliment pregnant women… [but] the best thing a pregnant woman can hear is the word ‘sexy,’” she said.
But she was quick to add, “Usually I’m... an activist and [support] women's rights. I’m like, 'Excuse me, do not objectify me!' or whatever. But now that I'm pregnant, I'm kind of itching for sexy compliments.”
She also says, to the resounding cheers of women and foodies everywhere, “Nothing makes me happier than to see a pregnant woman eat,” as she tucked into a plate of ribs that Craig brought out for her.
Well, we believe being pregnant, eating well and beautiful shouldn’t be mutually exclusive. You look splendid, Zoe, pregnant or not. And you’re bringing two brand new, tiny lives into the world – what could be sexier than that!

Ezra Miller is Warner Bros' new Flash
Ezra Miller has been cast as superhero Flash for the new Justice League movie slated for release in 2018.
The Internet has since exploded with news about this being the first openly LGBT actor being cast in a superhero role, but we’re more excited about seeing this versatile (pun intended) young actor show off the range of his talent once again.
Known for acting in The Perks of Being a Wallflower and then as a homicidal teen in the chilling adaptation of Lionel Shriver’s book We Need to Talk about Kevin, Ezra has proven that he doesn’t shy away from unusual, sometimes demanding roles. We can’t wait to see him as the super-speed, fast acting, thinking, moving superhero, Flash.
This news came as part of an announcement by Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara about a string of DC Comic-style films planned over the coming years – these include Wonder Woman and Justice League Part One in 2017, Shazam and Justice League Part Two in 2019, and Cyborg and Green Lantern in 2020.
Ansel Elgort pranks Jimmy Kimmel's niece in hilarious Halloween get-up
Halloween comes early over at Jimmy Kimmel Live! The Fault in our Stars and Divergent star Ansel Elgort was invited into the show to pull a prank on Jimmy’s12-year-old niece, Alison, who is a huge fan of the actor.
As Alison loves make-up, Jimmy invited her into the studio under the pretext that he’d organised a Halloween make-up tutorial for her with a famous Hollywood make-up artist. Cue Ansel.
Masquerading as a camp German make-up artist dressed up as a lion for the tutorial, he gets Alison to join in to "pray to the make-up gods” before the make-up session and then tries to convince her that “Ansel” isn’t actually very nice at all.
Imagine Alison’s (too cute) surprise when Ansel finally pulls off his mask and wig to reveals who he is. We love a good surprise, and it’s even better when the lead-up to it is as funny as this. Watch all the japes, caught on hidden camera, here:
