have a confession to make – I’ve kissed Angelina Jolie! OK, so technically I kissed her exh husband b d Jonny J Lee Miller, but I was reliably informed by the news team that means I’m only one degree of separation from the A-list siren herself. In a former life I edited a magazine on the party island of Ibiza, which is where I met
– and briefly locked lips – with the quietly spoken ex-Mr Jolie. He was super nice and I was a nervous wreck. I mean, how does one impress a man who was once married to a real-life Lara Croft! Needless to say, our flirtation fizzled fast. Things with Ange’s more recent ex-hubby have also taken an icy turn this week (p20). Maybe she should have stuck with the lovely Jonny!

ome of Hollywood’s biggest female stars – ‘nasty women’, as supporters of the movement have dubbed themselves – have a message for America’s new president Donald Trump: ‘I ask that you support me.’ Fearful of the fate of women’s rights in the US, Scarlett Johansson, 32, pleaded with the POTUS from Washington’s Women’s March on January 21: ‘Support my daughter who may actually, as a result of the appointments you have made, grow up in a country that is moving backwards, not forward, and who may potentially not have the right to make choices for her body and her future that your daughter Ivanka has been privileged to have.’ Meanwhile, at the LA protest, Natalie Portman rallied for gender equality in the workplace. ‘[Women] must seek leadership positions and support other women who do the same,’ insisted the 35-year-old actress.

FAMILY FEUD Olivia Munn thought she’d found her perfect match in NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers, but his family (below) have accused the actress of not dating him ‘for the right reasons’. What’s worse, after bubbling away since 2014, the feud is now public. ‘When he got together with Olivia, his
family told him they didn’t trust her and thought she wasn’t with him for the right reasons,’ reveals a friend. Despite Olivia, 36, being famous before she met Aaron, 33, they accused the Magic Mike star of using him to boost her proﬁle. Says the pal: ‘That made [Aaron] furious, and he ended up choosing Olivia over his family.’ ‘It’s complicated,’ admits his dad Ed, who seems ﬁne with his youngest son Jordan’s choice of ﬁancée, JoJo Fletcher (above).

BROOKLYN & SOFIA’S HOT
e can only imagine what went through Victoria Beckham’s mind when she learned her 17-year-old son was getting cosy with wild child Sofia Richie. Brooklyn showed the Beverly Hills-born model around London on January 19, and even took her bowling. But he avoided taking Sofia, 18, home – after all, his mum isn’t too keen on privileged Californians! ‘Victoria is strict with her children. She and David pride themselves on bringing them up well. But there is a certain culture in LA where rich kids have the potential to go off the rails,’ a friend says of former LA residents Posh and Becks’s decision to raise their family in England. And it’s teens like Sofia, the daughter of singer Lionel Richie, they wanted to keep away from Brooklyn and the rest of their brood! ‘It would be easy for the children to fall into those crowds and become spoilt Beverly Hills brats,’ the pal explains. However, it may be too late for Brooks, who’s clearly fallen into Sofia’s crowds. It’s a shock for Posh, who adored his down-to-earth ex, actress Chloë Grace Moretz, 19. The mum-of-four did have some warning, though: the London date was not Brooklyn and Sofia’s first – the pair were spotted hanging out in LA in October last year.

Natalie Portman is leading the pack, followed by Amanda Seyfried and freshly bumped Amal Clooney. ‘Natalie’s baby is due around the Oscars,’ reveals an insider ahead of the February 26 ceremony, where the 35-yearold is a frontrunner for the Best Actress gong. Could the bump be a lucky charm? Perhaps – she was pregnant with her nowﬁve-year-old son Aleph when she snapped 12 WWW.OKMAGAZINE.COM.AU

Nat’s looking fabulous – and no doubt her cravings are helping. ‘With [Aleph] I wanted like cream puﬀs or any dessert with cream in it,’ she admits. ‘And this time it’s like healthy pineapple, cucumber, burritos.’ Amanda, 31, on the other hand, has found herself with a penchant for all things naughty. ‘I crave everything that’s made of ﬂour, butter and sugar. Or not even sugar.
Just ﬂour and butter. You know what? Not even ﬂour. Just butter. A stick of butter.’ No word yet on what Mrs Clooney, 38, has been reaching for on those midnight snack runs, though there are rumours she’s not eating for two, but for three – with twins on the way! ‘The news that it was a boy and a girl made [her and George] really happy,’ says a friend of the couple. ‘They feel like they’ve hit the family jackpot.’
‘I DIDN’T WANT A DIVORCE!’
Amid whispers of an aﬀair with the family nanny and a gay sex scandal, Gavin Rossdale has long been painted the villain in the breakdown of his 14-year marriage to Gwen Stefani, 47. Yet the 51-year-old insists he was shocked when the mother of his three sons decided to divorce him in 2015. ‘[Divorce] was completely opposite to what I wanted,’ he reveals. ‘Apart from death, I think divorce is one of the hardest, most painful things to go through.’ Almost 18 months on, the Bush frontman hints that he was unhappy with Gwen’s decision to raise their boys Kingston, 10, Zuma, eight, and Apollo, two, in the US. ‘We were always going to have our kids in England, but as soon as a girl gets pregnant every decision is hers,’ he says bitterly.

With the cat out of the bag, Harry, 32, and Meghan, 35, are now more dete ined than ever to protect their plans – making elopement a very real poss ility on the back of the success of the recent romantic getaway. the start, Harry and Meghan have osely guarded the details of their
relationship. While the pair have been dating for almost a year, they managed to keep the romance secret for eight months. The long-distance lovers met for covert trysts in Harry’s hometown of London as well as Toronto, where Meghan films her hit TV series Suits. ‘It’s her life and his,’ Harry’s rep explains of their decision to stay as private as possible. Attention has intensified since the pair took their romance public in October, although Harry and Meghan can still slip away unnoticed – as their top-secret trip to Norway proves. And while his big brother William – heir to the throne – had the wedding of the decade when he married Kate Middleton, 35, in 2011, Harry isn’t constrained by the usual protocol surrounding royal nuptials, giving him the freedom to whisk his ladylove away for a quickie wedding. In fact, the palace may even prefer this underthe-radar option, given that this isn’t Meghan’s first trip down the aisle. Royals were banned from marrying
divorcées until only recently – and the Queen even refused to attend her son Prince Charles’s civil wedding to fellow divorcée Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, in 2005. But while the older royals might be concerned about Meghan’s divorcée status, it’s William, 34, and Kate’s opinion that the flame-haired prince cares about most – and they’ve welcomed Meghan with open arms. A close friend reveals that Meghan and Harry visited Kate at her Kensington Palace home shortly after they returned from their romantic trip to Norway. Confirming the holiday ‘went well,’ the pal adds, ‘Meghan’s so happy she’s getting to know more of Harry’s nearest and dearest.’ In fact, the big question isn’t ‘if ’ the couple will get married, but ‘when’ – and the answer is soon. Harry and his sister-in‘Friends have even talked about law ‘are very close’, says them getting married this year,’ a palace insider. ‘He really reveals a member of their inner values her opinion on circle. ‘It does seem very soon, girlfriends.

ON KIM KA YE T
he biggest celebrity feud of 2016 spectacularly exploded on July 17. Kim Kardashian, who’d been calling Taylor Swift a liar for weeks, released video proof on Snapchat revealing that the pop star had – despite her camp’s repeated denials – approved the majority of the controversial Famous lyrics Kanye West wrote about her, just as he’d long claimed, during a January 2016 phone call with the rapper. Within hours, Hollywood friends took sides, disappointed fans attacked and #KimExposedTaylor trended on social media after Kim, 36, called out Taylor for always wanting to ‘play the victim’. An insider reveals, ‘Taylor hasn’t forgotten how hard Kim and Kanye tried to humiliate her last summer.’ Now it’s payback time. In the wake of Kim’s jewellery heist in October, Kanye’s mental breakdown in November and ongoing rumblings of marital trouble between the stars, ‘Taylor has been laying low,’ says the mole. ‘But all that’s about to change. She’s going to come back bigger and stronger than ever, and part of her plan is to cause some major waves in the music industry and on social media with a much-anticipated revenge song, which is targeted directly at Kim and Kanye.’ The track even has a name. ‘The takedown song Taylor’s going to drop about Kimye has been tentatively titled No F---s Given,’ reveals the spy.
‘Though she’ll probably go for a softer song title in the end.’ Even so, for a songwriter who’s known for penning scathing tracks about her exes and adversaries, this single will be especially brutal. ‘Taylor feels that the damage Kim and Kanye did was way worse than anything any of her enemies or ex-boyfriends ever did,’ explains the insider. ‘It’s no-holdsbarred and includes lyrics referring to Kim and Kanye’s horrible year. Taylor’s still pissed off about how they embarrassed her, so yes, she’s hitting below the belt.’ The diss track couldn’t come at a worse time for Kimye, whose fragile relationship is barely hanging on by a thread. After Kim told a pal she wanted to call time on their two-year marriage, Kanye, 39, ‘convinced her’ to give the relationship one last shot, tells a Kardashian insider, promising that he would commit to treatment

for his psychological issues. ‘Kanye swore he was going to continue with intense therapy,’ says the family source. ‘When he’s doing the things his therapists tell him to do, [Kim] is so much happier.’ But the rocky state of Kimye’s romance isn’t even a blip on 27-year-old Taylor’s radar. She’s been holding a grudge and is determined to have the last word. ‘She wants the world to know that she’s still a force to be reckoned with and that Kim and Kanye totally manipulated the situation when they released the recording of her conversation with Kanye,’ says the first insider. ‘She’s not worried one bit about blowback and is prepared for counter-attacks from both Kim and Kanye.’ Public interest in the track will, of course, be huge. But the Grammy-winning songwriter is makin ng sure the music stands on its own. ‘Taylor says s this song is going to be bigger and better th han Bad Blood, d Dear John n and We Are Never Evver Getting Back Togetherr combined,’ adds thee spy. ‘She’s saying it’s a great track with an amazing beat that’s a sure-fire hit.’

BUSTED! 18 WWW.OKMAGAZINE.COM.AU
THE UNDERCOVER LOVERS HAVE FINALLY BEEN CAUGHT OUT
TEXT BY PENELOPE KILBY PHOTOGRAPHS BY BACKGRID, SPLASH
heir romance has been a slow burn, with nothing to substantiate whispers that Brad Pitt and Kate Hudson have been getting friendly – until now! Just as we were about to lose hope that the hot new couple would ever give us some concrete evidence of their relationship, they go and prove us wrong – and at the Golden Globe Awards, no less! ‘They’ve been secretly meeting up since they got together two months ago,’ says an insider, who kept quiet about the romance until the Allied star’s messy divorce from Angelina, 41, became more amicable. ‘As he gets closer to actually cutting the cord with Ange, Brad will have even more time to spend with Kate.’ While the pair were careful not to arrive at The Beverly Hilton together on January 8, or chat during the Globes ceremony, we now know that they ended the evening in the same vehicle. Brad, 53, skipped the afterparties entirely, leaving the venue by chauffeurdriven car. Not long afterwards, following an ‘intimate’ conversation with his agent Bryan Lourd, Kate, 37, was seen making an early exit from an afterparty at the Sunset Tower Hotel in the same car – reportedly for a late-night rendezvous with her leading man. A few days later, Kate’s mum Goldie Hawn tellingly dodged questions about the romance. However, she might as well have confirmed it with the huge smile she was wearing. That got us wondering: did Goldie know about her daughter’s crush on the father-of-six? ‘I’m for sure a flirt. Like, I love to flirt,’ Kate admitted just days after he and Ange announced their split. ‘I think Brad Pitt is very handsome.’ With Kate’s understanding of the trials and tribulations that go hand in hand with public break-ups, and the realities of life as a single parent, it’s not surprising Brad was drawn to the bubbly blonde mother-of-two – and the overwhelming show of support the actor received from his peers at the Golden Globes was the cherry on top of his newfound happiness and revitalised energy. ‘He looked better than he has in years, and it’s all because of Kate,’ says the insider, who reveals it was actually the Mother’s Day star who convinced Brad to make a surprise appearance at the awards. ‘Between his return to public life and having Moonlight, which he produced, win the award for Best Picture, it was a momentous evening.
He and Kate had plenty of reason to celebrate,’ adds the source. Now they’re out in the open, what’s next for the loved-up A-listers? ‘I think it won’t take long until he takes the next big step and actually moves in with Kate at her Pacific Palisades mansion,’ the insider predicts, explaining that Brad’s own home contains too many memories of his ill-fated marriage. ‘It’s been very painful for him to be there.’ ‘Being at Kate’s place feels like more of a fresh start,’ adds the mole. And with 12 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, two pools, a spa and library between the compound’s two houses, there’s plenty of room for everyone. ‘Between his kids and hers, it’s going to be like a funhouse! She’ll ‘Goldie has always be thrilled – Kate can’t keep her hands thought Brad was a great off Brad when they’re together.’ guy, and she’s told her With that to look forward to and the friends how happy pain of his split from Angelina starting to he makes Kate,’ the ease, we predict the handsome star’s smile insider spills. is back to stay. ‘Thanks to Kate,’ says the insider, ‘Brad’s back to his old self again.’

Ange’s sad realisation
SHE’S ALL ALONE
‘I don’t have a lot of friends I talk to,’ admits Angie. ‘I’m just not very social. I don’t really have girlfriends’
After going out guns blazing in a bid to win full custody of their six children, Angelina Jolie’s dirty tactics are coming back to bite her! ‘The majority of people seem to have sided with Brad,’ says an insider, who admits some friends have turned their backs on the actress. ‘Even those people Ange has been friendly with over the years, like Natalie Portman, who used to babysit for her kids.’ Others who’ve departed her rapidly shrinking circle of supporters include her infamous ‘coven’ of UK politician pals – Arminka Helic and Chloe Dalton – who haven’t been seen with Ange in months. The stress associated with splitting from Brad and her subsequent dive in popularity has also caused Ange’s weight to plummet, with friends estimating the 169cm star weighs just 40kg. ‘She’s so frail. She just isn’t coping well,’ says one pal. ‘While Angelina feels done with Hollywood, it will always be her home, and the idea of the town potentially turning its back on her really hurts,’ explains another. ‘It’s her hope that once the dust settles, she can rebuild her reputation.’ FEBRUARY 6, 2017 19
ANGE OVER THE STAR CRUMBLES AFTER A DAMNING THERAPISTS’ REPORT
‘Angie’s been willing to make Brad look like avillain, but he’s been completely focused on hischildren,’ says a source
espite Angelina Jolie’s campaign to paint her estranged husband Brad Pitt as a bad father and get sole custody of their six children, he’s come out on top. In the most dramatic development yet in their four-month divorce war, Angie is being forced to hand over the kids to Brad. ‘Up until now, Angelina has played games by suddenly cancelling visits and making it difficult for him to see them,’ an insider tells OK!. ‘But Brad is going to get his visitation much more regularly now. She has lost in the court of public opinion and will have to hand over the kids to him and stop playing games.’ The group of therapists who have been treating Brad, 53, and the Jolie-Pitt kids are busily preparing a report on their findings to send to a judge – and Angelina, 41, won’t like their assessment. ‘The report will describe Brad as a loving, devoted father, deeply impacted, emotionally, by the events of the past four or five months,’ reveals the insider. ‘It will encourage both parents to try to overcome Angie’s “bitter hostility” aimed at Brad, and to parent the kids together.’ The report contains another bombshell: while the therapists found Brad to be a devoted dad, they were critical of Angelina’s freewheeling parenting style. ‘The therapists want Angie to take a parenting class because she doesn’t grasp that the kids need a stable home environment and shouldn’t be moved all over the world because of her work,’ reveals the source. The therapists also have concerns that Angie ‘was engaging in parental alienation tactics’, or the psychological manipulation of a child into showing unwarranted fear, disrespect or hostility toward a parent.
ELINA HANDS R THE KIDS agreed to Brad’s request to seal the case – a ‘huge victory for Brad and a tremendous loss for her and her strategy of smearing him’, says the insider. ‘He has always acted in the best interest of the children, volunteering to take drug and alcohol tests – and passing them – agreeing to supervised visits, while people close to her continued to say he was an abusive father. Even after the Department of Children & Family Services and the FBI cleared him, her team acted as if the fact that he was investigated was proof he did something wrong.’ But the battle is far from over. Angelina is refusing to sign a new temporary custody agreement that would broaden Brad’s visitation rights. ‘Brad and Angie had been abiding by terms of a short-term custody agreement in which Angie retained sole

custody of the kids, with Brad having monitored visitation,’ explains the insider. ‘But the therapists indicated there was no need for further visitation to be monitored when Brad had the kids.’ Her team also rejected three private judges who have been suggested to preside over the case. ‘Brad is absolutely prepared to haul Angie into court if they can’t make progress,’ reveals the insider. In the end ‘he’s going to atever it take do whatever takes to protect his children.’ ‘No money has ever been oﬀered – and that does not worry me,’ says Zahara’s birth mum
The biological mother of Zahara – who Angie T aadopted in Ethiopia in 2005 – has made a plea to speak with the 12-year-old. ‘I do not want my daughter back, but just to be in contact with her,’ says Mentewab Dawit Lebiso, 31, w who gave up her baby after becoming too sick to care for her. ‘She has a life I could never give her, but… I would like to see her face. I would ask Angelina to let me speak with her. I do not think it is too much to ask.’

The therapists aren’t the only ones backing Brad, who’s determined to win joint custody of Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, eight. When the actor made a surprise appearance at the Golden Globe Awards on January 8, he was met with wild applause from his Hollywood peers. ‘It really sent a message about how people have seen him as acting responsibly during Angelina’s entire smear campaign against him,’ says the insider. ‘There’s no question Brad has won this battle.’ Even members of Angie’s own team have grown frustrated with her tactics and turned against her. ‘There are huge disagreements,’ notes the source. ‘They are fighting.

‘In my life, being a mother has been the overriding thing that has changed everything and made it better,’ Nic reveals of parenting her children, including her two youngest Sunday and Faith
Nicole & Keith’s
THE COUPLE ARE EAGERLY AWAITING THE PITTER-PATTER OF LITTLE FEET
icole Kidman has a serious case of baby fever – and she doesn’t care who knows it. ‘It makes me sad that my girls are getting bigger now,’ she recently spilled, speaking about her two youngest daughters. ‘The best thing is to always have a baby in the house… And we don’t have a baby in the house.’ It’s comments like this that have everyone convinced there’s another tot on the way. ‘Keith and I would love to have more babies,’ Nic confirmed earlier this month. ‘I would be beyond happy and just welcome it with open arms.’ Keith’s keen to bring a new little life into their household, too. Describing parenthood as ‘pure bliss’, the singer says their daughters, Sunday, eight, and Faith, six, have filled his life with joy. ‘When I’m home, I just love waking them up in the morning and taking them up to bed at night,’ he says. ‘It’s a beautiful thing.’ At 49 year of age, Nicole has been trying – unsuccessfully – for another baby for years, but admits she still has ‘the faintest hope that something may happen this year’. ‘My grandmother gave birth to my mother at 49,’ the Lion actress explains. And although she sadly concedes, ‘I think I’m past that point now’, rumours are bubbling away that the pair have already taken steps to make their parenting dreams come true via surrogacy. It wouldn’t be the first time Nicole and Keith have sought help to have children. After all, the pair also used a surrogate to welcome Faith. ‘She was the most wonderful woman to do this for us,’ Nicole says of their surrogate. ‘I get emotional
talking about it because I’m so grateful to her.’ The pair enlisted the help of a surrogate after they naturally conceived their daughterr Sunday. Describing her pregnancy as ‘the miracle’ of her life, Nicole has spoken openly about her heartbreaking struggles with fertility during her marriage to Tom Cruise. ‘Anyone that’s been in the place of wantingg another child or wanting a child knows the disappointment, the pain and the loss that you go through trying and struggling with fertility,’ the Oscar winner reveals. ‘I’ve had an ectopic pregnancy, miscarriages and I’ve had fertility treatments.’ Nicole is just one name on a growing list of stars who have had children later in life. The actress was heartened when she learnt that Aussie TV host Sonia Kruger had fallen pregnant at 49 with the help of an egg donor. ‘That’s incredible,’ Nicole says. ‘What a fabulous thing.’ And while she’s obviously a fierce advocate for surrogacy, the Aussie actress says she’s open to mothering in its many guises. ‘Children are the joy of my life,’ she says. ‘I’m one of the few people in the world who has experienced so many different forms of [becoming a mother]. But I haven’t… been a foster mother and I’m very interested in that.’ Of her two gorgeous girls with hubby Keith, Nic says, ‘I have two little alphas… Great leaders.’ But to make her happiness truly complete, the homegrown star is also intent on rebuilding her rocky relationships with her adopted children from her first marriage – Bella, 24, and Connor, 22. Estranged from them following her 2001 divorce from Tom, Nicole admits she was devastated when her adult children stopped calling her ‘Mum’. But that’s now all in the past, says Connor. ‘Me and Mum are solid,’ he confirms. ‘I love her a lot.’ For Nicole, her children are her children – no matter how they came into her life. ‘As soon as that bond is formed, that’s it,’ she says of her non-biological babies. ‘You know that feeling of you would die for that child.’

IS ANTONIATHE SURROGATE? Nicole used an anonymous surrogate to carry her daughter Faith, but this time, could she have chosen someone a little closer to home? While the actress is moving forward with her baby plans, her sister Antonia, 46, is showing some very noticeable signs of a telltale bump! The mum-of-six has always shared a super-close bond with her movie star sis. ‘No-one will ever come between us,’ Nicole says. ‘We need that love and support from each other, and we’re both willing to give it.’ And what better way to build on that bond!

Nick says it ‘meant a lot’ to have his castmates at the wedding. ‘A lot of viewers thought we’d never speak again, but we ended up creating this really strong bond.’

A A A SURVIVOR CASTAWAY FINALLY WEDS HIS BEAUTIFUL BRIDE
A picture of Nick’s late mum Elly adorned Christine’s ﬂowers
‘There were no glitches; it was the perfect day,’ tells Nick
ndless blue skies and sunshine set the tone as Australian Survivor’s Nick Iadanza married his gorgeous bride Christine Cirillo on January 21. After postponing their nuptials so that Nick could fulfil his dream of becoming a castaway – ‘We were meant to get married last July, but I was sitting out on the beach out in Samoa,’ laughs Nick – the long-time friends-turned-sweethearts tied the knot in front of 250 guests at Adelaide’s picturesque Sunnybrae Estate, with the reception following. ‘The day was just perfect,’ shares Nick, 28. ‘There was just this outpouring of love, not just from us but from everyone.’ He and Christine, 29, met at university while studying for a teaching degree, but it wasn’t until seven years later that they started dating. In September 2015, Nick popped
‘She looked like an angel,’ gushes the proud groom. ‘I couldn’t believe how lucky I was’
Uncle Nick says future children are ‘a way oﬀ yet’

FEBRUARY 6, 2017 29
Congrats, guys! How are you feeling? Christine: Relieved! The day was perfect. I couldn’t have asked for anything better. How were your nerves on the day? Christine: They were OK; I was just so excited to get there I don’t think that I slept at all the night before. Nick: I was the opposite. I was raring to go. The only time I did get a little nervous was when I was standing waiting at the end of the aisle for Christine. Christine, did you keep him waiting long? I was about 10 minutes late. We went to the wrong entrance and I was scared everyone would see us driving off and think ‘runaway bride’. [Laughs] Nick: I’d got there early because I wanted to have enough time for the Kombi to stop at the cemetery where my mum is buried, so I could place flowers and just have a quiet moment to myself, which was nice. Did you write your own vows? Christine: We did. Nick: I made all my nice promises, but I had to slip in there that I promise not to leave the same skid mark in the toilet bowl every day, day in and day out. [Laughs]
‘There were a few tears on my part,’ admits Nick. ‘Christine was ﬁne, but I’ve cried on national TV, so I’m not afraid to shed a few!’
‘Our little dog Rudy walked down the aisle,’ explains Nick. ‘Yes, we are those people,’ he laughs
s it your traditional ceremony? ck: It wasn’t. Our best friend uren [Khabbaz-Duncan] was e celebrant and it was more eremony based on what we ed and what we wanted. hristine: People were cheering roughout, which was nice. nd was the reception verything you hoped it’d be? ick: Sunnybrae is such an mazing space. hristine: It’s actually where ick had his 21st birthday. ick: It’s like an old coach house that has been converted into a reception centre. It was like one big party.

the question with his students reading out a hand-written poem. Like the proposal, the couple’s big day was filled with heartfelt touches, and most importantly, Nick’s mother Elly, who sadly passed away a few years ago after a battle with breast cancer, played a big role in the day. ‘As a wedding gift, Christine actually got a star for me named after my mum so she was there looking down on us,’ explains Nick. Here, the happy newlyweds chat exclusively to OK! about their dream day and their plans for the future…

‘We wanted to pay tribute to the fact that we are teachers, so that’s what we based the theme of the day on,’ shares Christine. Guests dined on goat’s cheese and prawn pasta for entrée and lamb or steak for the main
The ‘recess’ post-ceremony included Nutella and chip sandwiches, Zooper Dooper ice blocks and other favourite treats from the ’90s
The dance ﬂoor was certainly pumping… Nick: It was! From the moment we walked in we were high-fiving everyone and that upbeat mood carried on throughout the night. We even extended the wedding for another half hour, otherwise we would have had to pry everyone off the dance floor.
‘We chat almost every day,’ Nick says of the Survivorcrew The cake was chocolate mud and peanut butter. ‘Nick is a massive fan of peanut butter,’ says Christine
‘We created a drinks menu based on cheesy puns on some famous old books,’ explains Nick
What were the speeches like? Nick: My groomsmen did a great speech about how I clawed my way out of the friend zone and even had a PowerPoint presentation. Christine: We also said a speech together about the seven things that we learnt while wedding planning. Where are you going for your honeymoon? Nick: We are saving our honeymoon for the middle of the year and we are going to try to hit something cool like Africa or something like that. Definitely no tropical islands! FEBRUARY 6, 2017 31

WE NEVER INTENDED FOR A BROMANCE TO HAPPEN…
IT’S TIME O 6
ith Suits returning from its mid-season break on Australian TV screens on January 26, fans are dying to know, will Jessica come back? Will Mike marry Rachel? And will she lose credibility for the sins of her fiancé? While the cast remain tight-lipped about the fate of Harvey Specter and his gang of New York legal eagles, Gabriel Macht, 45, who plays the suave attorney, and 35-year-old Patrick J Adams, who stars as Mike Ross, spill on their off-screen bromance, the couple fans are gunning for – and of course, the fate of Suits.
When are Harvey and Donna [played by Sarah Raﬀerty] going to get together? Gabriel: You know, the audience has so many ideas about what should happen between the two of them. I have always felt and I think I have always been articulate in saying that I don’t think that they’re right for each other. I think that they are perfect for each other in the business sense and I think they have a strong love for each other, but I’m not sure that they are in love with each other. I also think that as soon as characters that we long for connect and we see them together, very often the interest starts waning. I would actually never like to see them together. Gasp! We’ll have to agree to disagree on that one. So, you guys get to wear a lot of great suits on a daily basis, particularly Harvey… Gabriel: Well, I can tell you that every suit he wears is a Tom Ford suit. He’s a man of style! Are you partial to a Tom Ford suit yourself, Gabriel? I like to go under the radar. I’m not as slick… Normally, you see me in Birkenstocks and board shorts and
Patrick, you were dressed in prison garb for quite a while there. How did it feel to be back in a suit? It was strange to be putting on a suit again. It had been a while. What was also weird is it’s not the same Mike anymore. It’s like coming at it from a new angle. Mike doesn’t hold on to any of this shame or this secret anymore, you know? He’s free of it. He’s done his time. He’s out, so there’s something, there’s a sort of renewed confidence, a renewed maturity to him. It just made me really excited to see who this guy is going to become now that he can finally shake off the weight of this secret he’s been carrying around for so long. Now that Mike is out of jail, can you tell us what’s next for him? I think for Mike, it’s a struggle of where he wants to end up. He obviously would love to work with Harvey again, but doing so as lawyer is going to be difficult, so maybe there’s another capacity in which he can do it. But at the same time, in his closing statements last year at his own trial, he made it very clear that he wasn’t interested in wasting his talent anymore just fighting for the one per cent… I think that push and pull of who he wants to be and how he wants to do it is going to become the next big conversation of the show and [we’ll] see how that gets put back together again.
When asked what he loves about Jacinda Barrett, his Aussie wife of 12 years, Gabriel tells OK!, ‘You know what? Most Aussies are fruity salts of the Earth. They speak truthfully, directly. I just like their honesty… Look, I think she’s the real deal.’
Gabriel, when you started out playing high-ﬂying lawyer Harvey in 2011, we hear you didn’t need to do too much research to prep for the role. How so? I have a family full of lawyers. My sister [Julie] was a District Attorney in the Bronx, my cousin is a lawyer, my aunt is a lawyer, my grandfather was a judge and one of my closest friends was a much nicer version of Harvey in LA, before becoming an advisor to Jerry or of California.
THE HIT TV SERIES IS BACK – AND ITS LEADING MEN ARE SHARING ALL THE GOSS

I TRULY HAD NO IDEA MY LIFE COULD BE THIS AWESOME
But you’re nothing like Harvey IRL. Fans must be surprised when they meet you! When I see people on the street everyone is, ‘Harvey Specter! Hey, Harveyyy!’ There was a guy in New York who was like, ‘I adore you; you’re my everything.’ And I was like, ‘Really? You adore the totally insecure guy who’s got to put people in their place in a really aggressive, angry way?’ The show is shot in Toronto, where Patrick was born and raised – but does it feel like home for both of you now? Gabriel: Yes and no, not really. It’s where I work. I love my crew, they’ve become a second family to me, but when I’m not working there I’m flying back home, home to be with my family, so I’m really there to work. Patrick: It’s nice to have everybody in the city because we all feel very far from home a lot of the time, even me because my whole life is in LA. We can band together and look out for each other, which is great. With loved ones back in LA, having a good mate by your side must be great for both of you… Patrick: We never intended for a bromance to happen. That was all a by-product of us wanting to be comfortable with each other and to be able to play with each other. The ladies go crazy for both of you guys. Anyone care to comment? Gabriel: Oh my God, [Patrick] is the most handsome co-star I have ever worked with. He is way more rugged than Colin Farrell. He is way more intelligent than Owen Wilson. He is so much funnier than Chris Rock. Who else is there? Am I threatened by him? Totally. He keeps me up at night. I don’t know what to do about it. I’m working out every day.

So that’s why you and Sarah have such great on-screen chemistry?! Gabriel: We are really, really, really close friends. We’ve been to each other’s weddings. It is very hard to act with one of your best pals. But with that said, it’s a lot of fun. We constantly say to each other, ‘Don’t make me laugh, don’t make me laugh, stop, stop, don’t, stop.’ It’s very hard. Gabriel, do your children [Satine, nine, and Luca, two] visit you on the set? Yeah, I take them to the set. My daughter is, you know, what’s it called? She’s sort of like a volunteer. When she’s on set she watches what each department does and works with a department for the day. She’s gone with the caterers. She’s done things like that so she can learn a little bit along the way [about] what people do in life. These days, you both not only star in the show, but also direct episodes… Patrick: Yeah, the both of us directing has sealed the brotherhood more than anything ever has. We both took the opportunity really seriously and right from the start, we just made this pact that we’ve got each other’s backs. Sometimes you can disagree with a director, but we just agreed to go with it and if something didn’t work, we promised to let each other know. It’s been the best part of us working together, having each other’s backs like that. So, has the seven-year itch set in? Do you see yourselves playing these characters beyond the next season? Patrick: The itch is alive and well; it’s normal to have that. I don’t think for actors it’s a totally normal thing to play a character this long. I love this show, I love the character and I would love to see what would happen. But everything to me is dependent on the story… I also never want to overstay a welcome, I don’t want to fade out and have people stop watching before it ends. I believe in picking a strong ending.

‘I DON’T NEED A MAN’ THE YOUNGER STAR TALKS ABOUT HER TV HIT AND COMING INTO HER OWN
ilary Duff may have raised a few hopes among the male population when she recently revealed that she’d split from her boyfriend Jason Walsh. ‘Bros, good news: your dream girl Hilary Duff is now single again!!!!’ the website BroBible announced to the joy of many men the world over. But they may be set for disappointment, because Hilary is already off the market again! The actress has started the new year with a new love interest, after being spotted smooching music producer Matthew Koma on January 14. And if her dating mantra is anything to go by, she’s done for 2017! ‘I meet, like, one person a year that I’m maybe attracted to,’ the 29-yearold explains. ‘I’ve never been a good dater.’ Here, the former child star talks life as a solo mum, her approach to co-parenting, and truly coming into her own as she heads towards 30.
GOING IT ALONE
She may be freshly loved-up, but that doesn’t mean she can’t be happy on her own. ‘I never want to be that girl who’s desperate to find a mate,’ Hilary adds. ‘I think I’m a pretty confident person.’ And one thing’s for sure – there’s been plenty to keep her busy, even before she threw a new beau into the mix!
An actress, musician and mum to four-yearold son Luca, Hilary is certainly being kept on her toes. Her hit TV series Younger is returning for a fourth season in 2017, with plenty of new fans continuing to catch on to the critically acclaimed comedy through word of mouth – despite Hils and the crew not being certain it would even take off when it first started. ‘I think we’re so lucky,’ Hilary says. ‘The first season we were like, “Did anybody see our show? Are we going to make it?” And then it sort of caught on like wildfire.’ The show stars Sutton Foster as a 40-yearold divorcée who pretends to be 26 to get a job, with Hilary playing her 27-year-old colleague. But in real life, Hilary’s been going on her own path of self-discovery ever since divorcing Luca’s dad Mike Comrie, 36, in 2014. ‘Mike and I were very in love when we met,’ she explains. ‘We both really wanted to get married. I’d been working since the age of 11 or 12, so making that choice at a young age seemed right for me. Maybe it wasn’t, but we spent the majority of our time together really happy.’ Hilary was just 13 when she scored the lead role in Disney TV series Lizzie McGuire. Before long, her face adorned countless T-shirts, pillowcases and pencil cases, paving the way for
‘I really feel like he chose me,’ Hilary gushes of her son Luca
KISS OFF! After critics claimed this Insty snap of Hilary kissing her son was ‘inappropriate’, the star challenged her haters head on. ‘Go ahead and click a quick unfollow with your warped minds and judgement.’ FEBRUARY 6, 2017 41
OK! SPOTLIGHT other fresh-faced stars to follow, including the likes of Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez. The blonde beauty also had her share of Hollywood romances along the way, including Frankie Muniz, an ill-fated date with Shia LaBeouf – which he admits was ‘probably the worst date either of us has ever had’ – and a two-year relationship with Joel Madden, who’s eight years her senior. Then along came Mike, who’s a now-retired member of Canada’s National Hockey League. ‘I was 22 when I got married,’ she says. ‘I don’t think we were mature enough to stick it out.’
HER BIG START It’s hard to believe it’s been 16 years since Lizzie McGuire hit our screens. So does Hilary keep in touch with her old castmates? ‘Not too long ago I ran into Lalaine, who played Miranda, and Jake [Thomas], who played my little brother, at a bowling alley. It was awesome.’
‘I don’t feel the need to get married again,’ Hilary admits. ‘I got to have the experience and it was awesome’
While her marriage to Mike may not have lasted, it did bring the pair their greatest joy: their son Luca. Even so, the mummy shaming reared its ugly head – and was hard to take. ‘I feel like I was judged for having a baby too soon, and getting married too soon and now pigeonholed for being a mum,’ Hilary reveals. However, the feisty beauty adds, ‘I wouldn’t change any of it for the world.’ Hilary’s face lights up when she talks about Luca. ‘He’s the sweetest little spirit and we have so much fun. In bed at night, reading books, all the simple things are really the ones I cherish the most,’ she smiles. Mike also remains a big part of Hilary and Luca’s life; so much so that fans have wondered if they’re on track for a reconciliation. But Hilary has put those whispers to bed, confirming that the pair have definitely gone their separate ways, although they’ll always be close. ‘We’re a family, and we’re always going to be a family,’ says Hilary. ‘Mike’s amazing. We’re so ingrained in each other’s lives. I wouldn’t choose anyone else to co-parent with. We are really good friends and care a lot about each other.’

SCREEN QUEEN ‘The show felt like a step in the right direction. [It] got me really excited,’ Hilary says of getting back to acting in Younger.
The cast sure delivers in the looks department!
In fact, their unit is so close, Hilary initially resisted when producer Darren Star offered her the role in Younger, because it meant moving from LA to New York for four months a year. ‘I didn’t think I could do it,’ the star reveals, admitting she was still coming to terms with the split at the time. ‘I was in a funky place.’
It was another phone call from Darren that finally changed her mind. ‘I couldn’t really turn it down,’ explains Hilary, who was especially drawn to her character, Kelsey. ‘[She] is grown-up, but makes a shit-ton of mistakes, which I loved. I didn’t get to make many mistakes publicly in my life. I was always concerned with what people think.’ But if playing Kelsey has allowed her to catch up on missed experiences, Hilary has also made up for lost time. She even tried her hand at dating app Tinder before new beau Matthew, 29, came long! ‘No-one thought I was really on it – and I was really on it!’ she shares. While it didn’t last long, Hilary was glad to just be another single doing some mingling. ‘It was really fun for a minute; I wanted to

experience something totally normal.’ And while Hilary was in no particular hurry to find a new man after her split from Jason last year – ‘If it comes, it comes, and that’s great,’ she said – it seems love found her when she least expected it.
I commend Miley for not giving a f--- what people think Singer/producer Matthew worked with Hilary on her 2015 album Breathe In. Breathe Out, but while the pair might be making beautiful music together, her singing career is on hold – for now. Though there’s been talk

of a sixth album for the multi-talented star, Hilary says Luca will always be her top priority. ‘As a parent you learn about balance,’ she says. ‘Before I had a child I could [sing and act] and give it my everything. I was pedal to the metal, sleep when I die, and now my son takes priority over everything. I’m not going to be on a world tour and be [at] the top of the charts because I don’t have the time to put in and that’s not what’s important to me.’
Hilary’s no-nonsense attitude and decision to live life her way is a similar ethos to her fave Disney alum, Miley Cyrus. ‘I commend her for not giving a f--- what people think.’ More in charge of her life than ever, Hilary is ready to embrace her thirties when she hits the milestone in September. ‘I’ve had a career for a long time, but I’ve put a lot of unnecessary pressure on myself as a woman, a businessperson [and] an actress. I’m like, “Am I doing enough?”’ she admits. ‘Everyone I’ve talked to says you come into your own in your thirties. You feel more secure. I’m looking forward to that.’ FEBRUARY 6, 2017 43

‘Beautiful on the inside and out,’ Sutton gushes of co-stars Hilary and Nico
CLASSIC THRILLS She’s had success in both athletics and car racing, but Caitlyn, 67, admits, ‘I was a lot more badass [as a] runner than I was a driver.’ But the star still loves her cars, especially her recent ‘birthday treat’ – this 1960 AustinHealey Sprite.
WHEN CELEBS GET BEHIND THE WHEEL, THEY DO IT IN STYLE!
Kendall Jenner VINTAGE SIREN
Inheriting her dad Caitlyn’s love of classic cars, the 21-year-old’s growing collection includes a blue 1957 Corvette and a red 1965 Mustang. Kendall reveals her vintage rides are quite the guy-magnets. ‘I get hit on by the most random people. Guys on motorcycles will pull up next to me and be like, “Nice car! It’s your dad’s, right?” And I’m like, “No, it’s actually mine!”’ 44 WWW.O
David Beckham FILM STAR
The school run’s got to be more interesting when you’ve got wheels like this. Becks, 41, spent $92,700 on his 1969 Porsche 911, which is a replica of the car his hero Steve McQueen drove in the ﬁlm Le Mans. ‘He looked amazing in everything,’ David says.
Jaden, 18, chose an environmentally conscious Tesla Model X for his ﬁrst car – but it’s a shame he can’t drive it just yet, after failing his driving test! ‘[I now have to] tell my dad that I’ve failed straight up,’ the actor lamented in an Insty video.
BORN TO RIDE The 30-year-old singer’s wheels, a 1960s Ford Bronco, are surprisingly rugged. But it wouldn’t be Gaga if there weren’t a few distinctive touches. Her car comes in a bright shade of sky blue! RUA
George Clooney TOYS He has an impressive car collection of his own, but George, 55, also loves borrowing his dad Nick’s red Corvette, which has been a part of the family since the actor was a wee lad! ‘George always coveted my ’59 Corvette,’ Nick recalls.

Keith Urban NEED FOR SPEED
The 49-year-old country crooner splashed out a whopping $3.6 million for this six-cylinder Bugatti Veyron last year. But while he wouldn’t be the ﬁrst man to buy a sports car at, ahem, a certain time in his life, Keith’s interest in fancy vehicles is nothing new. ‘I thank my dad because he was a mad car fan,’ he reveals. ‘I inherited that love and passion.’
With 130 cars (yep, you read that right!) and 93 motorbikes, Jay, 66, needs a warehouse to store his automobiles. One of his favourites is this vintage Bugatti. ‘I never thought of it as a collection,’ the uber-rich TV star says.
Jerry Seinfeld PORSCHE PURVEYOR
He doesn’t just collect sneakers! Jerry’s hoard peaked at 47 Porsches, including this impressive 550 Spyder. But the 62-year-old comedian sold oﬀ a few of his prized vehicles last year, explaining, ‘It’s time to send some of them back into the world for someone else to enjoy.’
CLASS ACT Nothing but a Bentley would do for TV’s highest-paid actress! Soﬁa, 44, dished out $303,000 for her classic black Bentayga, although the Modern Family star also owns a couple of Range Rovers. ‘My cars are smarter than me,’ she jokes.
She’s married to Formula One team boss Christian Horner, so it comes as no surprise that the former Spice Girl has some impressive wheels. The 44-year-old Scream if you Wanna Go Faster singer received a bright red, $572,000 retro-style DB5 Aston Martin from her hubby for their 2015 wedding. However, the environmentally conscious star’s favourite ride is this tiny electric car!
Ben Affleck MUSCLE MAN
OK, so it’s not the Batmobile, but on his oﬀ-duty days, the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star still gets to drive some pretty impressive wheels, like this 1966 Chevelle SS 396. The cherry red ‘muscle car’ is a personal labour of love for the 44-year-old actor, who’s been known to tinker under the bonnet.

Your parents may have told you cheese gives you nightmares, but mozzarella can actually help you sleep! That’s because it contains the amino acid tryptophan, which your body converts to melatonin. ‘This is the hormone that’s released at night to make you sleepy,’ nutritionist Cassandra Barns explains. Other foods with lots of tryptophan include chicken and pumpkin seeds, while slow-releasing carbs (think oats and sweet potato) help you to stay awake during the day, says fellow nutritionist Marilyn Glenville.
CHINESE NEW YEAR Get into the spirit of the Year of the Rooster with these tasty delicacies
PEKING DUCK SANG CHOY BOW INGREDIENTS
•2 tbsp vegetable oil •100g fresh shiitake
mushrooms, ﬁnely chopped •1 eschalot, ﬁnely sliced •1 garlic clove, crushed •1 Peking roast duck, ﬂesh ﬁnely chopped •227g can water chestnuts, ﬁnely chopped •1 carrot, cut into matchstick-sized pieces •2 tbsp Shaoxing wine •1⁄4 cup hoisin sauce •2 tbsp light soy sauce •100g snow peas, thinly sliced lengthways •1 cup bean sprouts •8-12 iceberg lettuce cups, trimmed
METHOD 1 In a wok or large frying pan, heat oil until very hot. Stir-fry mushrooms, eschalot and garlic for 1 minute. Add duck, water chestnuts and carrot. Stir-fry a further 1 minute. 2 Add wine to wok to deglaze. Add sauces and bring to simmer. Cook for 1-2 minutes until sauce thickens. 3 Remove from heat. Toss snow peas and bean sprouts through. Serve in lettuce cups.
For a garnish, reserve some of the duck skin and roast in a moderate oven, 180°C, 5-10 minutes until crisp. Thinly slice and scatter.
DEEP-FRIED ICE-CREAM BALLS INGREDIENTS
•500ml vanilla ice-cream •2 eggs •1⁄2 cup plain ﬂour, sifted •1⁄3 cup milk •1 tbsp sugar •150g digestive biscuits,
ﬁnely crushed •2⁄3 cup panko breadcrumbs •1⁄2 cup desiccated coconut •Vegetable oil for deep frying •Fresh fruits of choice, to serve
METHOD 1 Line a tray with baking paper and place in freezer until cold. Using a large ice-cream scoop, make 6 large, round scoops and place on tray in freezer. Freeze at least 30 minutes until very ﬁrm. 2 In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, ﬂour, milk
and sugar together, until smooth. In a large bowl, combine biscuits, panko breadcrumbs and coconut. 3 Working quickly, coat ice-cream balls in batter, then roll in crumbs. Return to freezer for 30 minutes until ﬁrm. Repeat with a second layer of batter and crumb mixture, ensuring balls are completely coated in crumbs. Return to freezer for 1 hour or overnight, until very ﬁrm. 4 When ready to cook, heat oil in a wok or large saucepan, on medium, until a few breadcrumbs sizzle as soon as they are added (160°C). Fry ice-cream balls in 2 batches for 2-3 minutes, until golden brown. Serve straight away with fruits.
Check your wok is hot enough to start cooking by looking for a shimmering pattern on the oil’s surface. Always reheat your wok between batches to prevent stewing.

‘I was married for a year almost 10 years ago,’ tells the mum to Dylan, 11. ‘I had postnatal depression after my son was born.’
This uni student isn’t settling! ‘I was in love [with an ex], but he’s not the kind I usually go for… so I broke up with him,’ she reveals.
DEBORAH, 53, QLD A strict contract prevented this former model from settling down. ‘We weren’t allowed to fall pregnant,’ she shares.

Bek and Ash
‘I COULD’VE DATED RICHIE!’ Flirty ﬂatmates Bek (far left) and Ash are sure to send temperatures soaring in the kitchen – and among viewers. The lovely ladies hail from Western Australia, and while dental nurse Ash, 30, is happily loved-up – ‘It’s all new and very exciting,’ she gushes – vet surgeon Bek, 27, is very much single – she even auditioned for The Bachelor last year. ‘I got super far… I was hoping it would be Richie [Strahan],’ reveals the bubbly blonde, before admitting her crush didn’t last long. ‘Once the show started, I got over it very fast.’ Now Bek’s chemistry with South Australian contestant Kyle (see below) has made the pair the talk of MKR’s Group 1 table. ‘It’s funny because he has a massive beard and I don’t really like beards,’ she quips. ‘But he’s got the personality – and that trumps everything!’

‘THEY CHANTED FOR IT’

While he won’t kiss and tell, Kyle, 27, admits there was more action oﬀ-camera with Bek, who he found ‘very good looking and extremely funny’. ‘We certainly shared a drink,’ he tells OK!. Let’s hope his teammate, ‘single and ready to mingle’ sales rep Tim, 30, is OK with losing his ‘man-date’.

Amy and Tyson
‘WE SIGNED UP AS THE VILLAINS’
Being dubbed the ‘angry, angry man’ on national TV mightn’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but Queensland Uber driver Tyson, 26, isn’t fazed by it. ‘My brothers and sisters have been calling me that for a fairly long time,’ he tells OK!. ‘I do have a tendency to get frustrated at certain little things easily.’ Tyson and sister, Amy, 29, who works in HR, predicted they’d be the ‘villains’ of the show. ‘With my seriousness and Amy’s dry sense of humour and honesty, I think we knew,’ he says.
Damo and Caz
‘Being away from the kids was a bit of a shock,’ reveals Tasmanian social worker Caz, who has two little ones with her sparky hubby Damo. However, that wasn’t the biggest hurdle for the couple, both 30 – it was being on the road together. ‘We’d never spent so much time in each other’s faces – it was a challenge, a real adjustment,’ admits Caz.

David and Betty’s relationship status is raising a few eyebrows. While the Sydney pair insist they’re ‘just friends’, some aren’t convinced. ‘I wouldn’t be surprised if something came out between them,’ says Kyle. IT manager David, 32, who’s tried out for MKR six times, is full of praise for his teammate. ‘Any guy would be lucky to be with her,’ he says. But social media expert Betty, 27, says it’s not going to happen. ‘We are just like brother and sister.’
ith Sienna Miller and Ben Affleck getting extremely close on the set of their 1920s gangster flick Live by Night, could Hollywood soon have a new power couple?

We hear you and Ben had one epic W ove scene in Live by Night… lo There was a montage in the script Th
Sienna and her mini-me Marlowe are loving life in New York
‘He’s doing everything on this ﬁlm,’ Sienna says of Ben, who writes, produces, directs and stars in the ﬂick
saying we did it everywhere: in the car, in the bar… I was like, ‘That’s an entire day of just love scenes!’ How did you get through a whole day of ﬁlming that? By the time nine hours of it had gone past, I was shaking with tears running down my face. There was just a lot of stupid giggling. He’s very professional – I am not. You’ve been taking on more dramatic roles of late – are you feeling more challenged? I don’t think looking glamorous has ever been a consideration to me. It took me a while to be seen as a serious actress. How’s the big move to New York going so far? I find New York, at the moment, a little bit more inspiring. Marlowe [Sienna’s four-year-old daughter] is loving it. Does Marlowe take after you? She’s pretty independent, she’s strong and we have the same sense of humour, which is probably the most enjoyable part of [motherhood]. Live by Night is in cinemas now
Luke Perry: I’M NOT A GREAT
Former Beverly Hills, 90210 heart-throb Luke Perry, 50, may be tackling the dad roles now – he appears in the new Archie comic book adaptation Riverdale as the wise parent of Archie (KJ Apa, left with Luke) – but oﬀ-screen, he’s not one to dish out fatherly knowledge. ‘Giving advice isn’t my job,’ he explains. Maybe he saves all of his guidance for his real-life son Jack (right)? The 19-year-old is a budding wrestler, who goes by the name of ‘Jungle Boy’ Nate Coy. Watch Riverdale from Friday on Netﬂix

LILY DONALDSON celebrates her 30th birthday on January 27
JAN 21 – FEB 19
FEB 20 – MAR 20
MAR 21 – APR 20
This week will be all about career and money. If you’re not happy with the way things are, now is the time for change. Some of you may even look further aﬁeld in your career. Whatever you decide, expansion is the name of the game. Others may not agree, but this is your life! This week’s mantra: I’m ready for the new.
You may feel isolated this week, but this is something to be embraced, not shunned. By taking a step back, you’ll become clear about what’s working and what isn’t. It’s an ideal time to start putting yourself ﬁrst, learning to say no, and leaning on others for support instead of allowing them to lean on you. This week’s mantra: It’s my time!
You need to plan how you’ll navigate 2017. If you’re clear about your desired outcomes, the universe can help you achieve them. Going with the ﬂow will only ﬁnd you stuck in the same old rut. A change of address or property investment is indicated this year, so watch your ﬁnances. This week’s mantra: I’m focused on the future.
APR 21 – MAY 21
MAY 22 – JUN 21
JUN 22 – JUL 23
You’ll be thinking about branching out, so expect your head to be buzzing with new ideas. Write them down, action those you have a good vibe about and shelve the rest. You may feel a little stretched around the 23rd, but relax – whatever changes you make will have a positive outcome. This week’s mantra: Anything is possible!
Trust your instincts concerning work associates this week. Adjusting to the new may prove challenging, but you have what it takes to turn things to your advantage. If you need to bend over backwards to get others on side then that’s exactly what you should do – just don’t compromise your values. This week’s mantra: I’m strong enough.
Are you ready to walk away from everything that no longer works? Staying put for security’s sake will only leave you feeling trapped. By turning your back and placing your trust in the universe, everything will fall into place. Don’t be a pawn in other people’s games; play life by your own rules. This week’s mantra: I trust my instincts.
JUL 24 – AUG 23
AUG 24 – SEP 23
SEP 24 – OCT 23
Diﬃcult people or situations will try your patience this week, so take care that you don’t lose it. Things said or done when stressed out will have long-term ramiﬁcations. Try to keep calm and remain level-headed. If you step back and just observe, you’ll feel more in control. This week’s mantra: I am in control.
Others will want you to give up and walk away this week, but what good is that going to do in the bigger scheme of things? Instead, talking it through will be your best course of action. The bottom line is: do what makes you happy. If you make yourself the top priority, everything will fall into place. This week’s mantra: I deserve happiness.
People always project their own issues onto others – and this week will ﬁnd you the target of such behaviour. Don’t try to argue the point; it will get you nowhere. Just listen to what they have to say, thank them for their communication and remember that some people think they are always right! This week’s mantra: It is what it is.
OCT 24 – NOV 22
NOV 23 – DEC 21
DEC 22 – JAN 20
Many of you are eager for change, so the last two days of the week will prove interesting. Try to keep your cool if someone proves annoying. However, if being diplomatic doesn’t work, you’ll have no choice but to be blunt. Also taking time out for some soul searching will prove beneﬁcial. This week’s mantra: I speak my mind.
Things are starting to move, so you need to get down to the nitty gritty. It’s easy to run away from others, but you can’t run from yourself. The clearer you are about who you are and what you want to achieve, the better. Just remember, it’s never the other person – it is always you. This week’s mantra: I face reality.
Let go of people you should have erased from your life a long time ago. It will be a challenging task, but everything is about you moving to the next level of awareness concerning all areas of your life. When everything is in place, you’ll know exactly who you want around you in 2017. This week’s mantra: Time for cleansing.
