DOUBLE THE FUN

It’s always nice when divas lift each other up. Case in point: not long after Beyoncé shattered Instagram records with the news she is expecting twins to join daughter Blue later this year (see p. 8), Mariah Carey, proud mother to 5-year-olds Moroccan and Monroe, commented, “I’m so happy for you [and Jay Z]. Having twins is the most incredible experience ever!”

But Carey has also been candid about the toll that raising two kids of the same age can take. “It’s really hard,” Carey said days later. “I had a tough time.” No doubt other celebrity parents of pairs agree. Note to Bey: go slay at the Grammys ... then start banking sleep. Shane Sutton, Editor editor@who.com

s c i p o t t ho Beckham’s charitable work (in the Philippines in 2014) has “helped millions of vulnerable children,” said his rep.

Leaked emails paint David Beckham as angling for a knighthood

P

OLICE IN PORTUGAL HAVE confirmed to the BBC they are investigating a case related to sports site Football Leaks, as reps for David Beckham described emails published by a British tabloid as “hacked” and “doctored.” On Feb. 4, The Sun published the reportedly leaked emails from 2013 in which Beckham and publicist Simon Oliveira discussed how the star might secure a knighthood. After Beckham allegedly called the honouring of singer Katherine Jenkins with an Order of the British Empire “a f--king joke” and the Honours Committee “unappreciative c--ts” of whom he “expected nothing less,” his rep urged him to focus energy on his charitable efforts. “It’s a disgrace to be honest and if I was American I would of got something like this 10 years ago,” Beckham allegedly wrote. The reported 18.6 million emails over three years also included Beckham’s supposed reluctance to donate his own

money to charity and his rep urging him not to post a photo of his gold-plated laptop on social media so as not to ruin his “man of the people” reputation. The suggestion Beckham, 41, allegedly used his work as a Unicef Goodwill Ambassador to campaign for a knighthood “is based on outdated material taken out of context from hacked and doctored private emails,” a rep for the retired soccer star tells WHO in a statement. The Mirror reports a hacker, understood to be from Eastern Europe, demanded money through a lawyer in return for not publishing the emails. After Doyen Sports refused to pay, the emails were published online and later printed by The Sun. Unicef has not commented on the emails but said in a statement: “As well as generously giving his time, energy and support to help raise awareness and funds for Unicef’s work for children, David has given significant funds personally.” n

A DETAILED POLICE REPORT has revealed the dramatic moment singer–songwriter Jamie Lynn Spears watched her 8-year-old daughter, Maddie, crash a quad bike into a pond, disappearing underwater for about two minutes after she had tried to avoid a drainage ditch on their Louisiana property. “The ATV and child were instantly submerged in the water right before their eyes,” the Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff Daniel Edwards said in a statement obtained by WHO. “Within seconds the child’s mother, stepfather [Jamie Watson] and other family members reached the pond, dove in and attempted to rescue the child to no avail.” Maddie was eventually freed from the seatbelt and safety netting by ambulance officers and rushed to hospital, where at press time her condition was critical but stable. A day after the Feb. 5 incident Maddie’s aunt, Britney Spears, tweeted fans: “Need all the wishes and prayers for my niece.” Grandad Jamie Spears told Entertainment Tonight, “All I can say is pray for our baby Maddie.” n

used Jillian Michaels’s DVDs to lose 25kg after having daughter Willow in 2011. “We trained five times a week,” Jenkins told WHO. “We mixed it up. It was a combination of strength training, flexibility work. We did yoga and Pilates.” Back then, the star waited eight weeks before exercising and it took her 15 months to get back in shape, training for 90 minutes five days a week and using a mealdelivery service based on 1,400 calories (5,857kJ) a day. “I do the best I can,” Pink told WHO. “I love to feel fit. I love to feel healthy. I wasn’t in a race.” n

Disick and Kardashian (in Calabasas with Penelope on Feb. 2) “have always been amicable and stayed best friends for the sake of their kids,” says a source.

Disick spent part of his Miami stay in the Grand Suite at the Setai Hotel, which includes three bedrooms, a spa and sauna. “He’s been trying to win Kourtney over for a while now but his constant partying was a huge issue,” says a source.

LTHOUGH REALITY STAR KOURTNEY Kardashian’s ex Scott Disick made a surprise appearance on a filmedfor-TV Kardashian family holiday to Costa Rica earlier this year, things were tense. “Kourtney hasn’t been happy with Scott for weeks,” says a source of the parents of three. “She allowed him to come to Costa Rica for a couple of days so he could have fun with the kids. Scott’s behaviour is again getting out of control. He is partying a lot.” On Jan. 30, Kardashian flew home to Los Angeles with Mason, 7, Penelope, 4, and Reign, 2, after Disick jetted to Miami, Florida, where he has spent his time poolside, cuddling up with young women. “Scott hung out with a model at his hotel pool. They were affectionate. Scott kept ordering drinks for them,” a source told WHO. “He seemed to have a great time. It was only a one-day thing.” Two days later he was again spotted at the Setai Hotel pool, “spending the day with a blonde girl,” the source said. “He is again by the pool and seems to have a good time.” Since Kardashian and Disick ended their nine-year relationship in July 2015, they have remained committed to trying to make it work

Johnny Depp

Hey, big spender

OHNNY DEPP IS AT WAR WITH HIS former business team, The Management Group (TMG), and neither party is backing down. The 53-year-old fired the first shot last month when he sued TMG for $25 million, alleging fraud among other claims (all figures are in $US). The company hit back with a crossclaim, allegingthe star lived an “ultra-extravagant lifestyle that often knowingly cost Depp in excess of $2 million per month to maintain, which he simply could not afford.” In the lawsuit filed on Feb. 1, the firm asks Depp to pay more than $560,000 in allegedly unpaid commissions and credit card fees. In a jawdropping list of allegations, they lay bare the star’s lavish spending. Among their claims, that he spent more than $75 million on 14 residences around the world and $300,000 a month on 40 full-time employees. They also claim they urged him to get a pre-nup before marrying Amber Heard (their divorce ended up costing him $7 million). While Depp’s lawyer, Adam Waldman, responded, “[TMG] have chosen to employ a reprehensible ‘blame the victim’ strategy in a transparent attempt to save their own skin,” the company is standing firm: “Over 17 years, [TMG] did everything possible to protect the actor from himself.” n

But ironically it was Amal’s casual fashion approach that grabbed attention, further fuelling the baby rumours that have been buzzing around the human-rights lawyer for the past few weeks. Famous for her stylish wardrobe of fitted dresses and figure-hugging pantsuits, Amal’s recent penchant for baggy fashion combined with a report in Lebanon’s Daily Star newspaper last month in which a family source claims Lebanese-born Amal is pregnant with twins has shifted focus from style watch to bump watch. Mixing business with pleasure in Spain, the 39-year-old celebrated her birthday with Clooney, 55, and his parents, Nick and Nina, at Barcelona’s Rooftop Smokehouse, while earlier in the day George and his mother took a back seat to their spouses at the ADP ReThink Human Capital Management conference, where Amal was keynote speaker and her father-in-law, Nick, was the moderator. n

Queen Elizabeth II celebrates an impressive sapphire jubilee

T

HE REIGN OF QUEEN Elizabeth II has become even more groundbreaking. On Feb. 6 the monarch celebrated her sapphire jubilee, or 65 years on the throne, the only British ruler to have reached the milestone. The event was marked by royal gun salutes across London and the re-release of a 2014 David Bailey portrait of Her Majesty in sapphire jewels given to her by her father, King George VI. But at 90, the

Selma Blair

world’s longest-reigning monarch didn’t publicly mark the occasion, instead spending the day at her residence in Sandringham. The British Prime Minister, Theresa May, believes the lack of pomp is testament to the Queen’s “selfless devotion to the nation.” Indeed, “She’s naturally shy and is the opposite of showy,” royal historian and author Robert Lacey told WHO. Elizabeth became Queen at age 25 after the death of her father and was crowned a year later. n

ANOTHER MELTDOWN “I’m doing great, I’m taking care of myself,” Blair (on Feb. 3) told WHO weeks before her petrol nozzle shemozzle.

Q: WHAT’S WORSE THAN forgetting to fill your car with petrol? A: Remember­ ing the fuel, but forgetting to remove the nozzle from your tank before driving away. But for actress Selma Blair, Feb. 3 got worse. “And then I paid for the broken pump, so that was over a $500 tank of gas,” she told her 339,000 Instagram followers. Stressed, the 44-year-old then burst into tears while waiting for a coffee

“and made everyone uncomfortable”—though it was “#notabreakdown.” Her “#crapday” followed another “embarrassing incident” seven months ago, when a “total psychotic blackout” she says was caused by combining prescription pills and alcohol saw her stretchered off a flight to Los Angeles after a Mexican holiday with her son, Arthur, and his father, Jason Bleick. n

Before I started the challenge I was really concerned about the dark circles and bags under my eyes. Dryness is always a problem and I had some fine lines and pigmentation that had become a worry. I went into the challenge hoping to achieve some noticeable improvement in the puffiness and dark circles under my eyes.

After using Natural Instinct Eye Cream and Serum morning and night for only a week, my lines have softened and under my eyes is already less puffy. The plumping serum made me see results instantly. I absolutely love these products.

For his part, Harry met Meghan’s father, former lighting director Thomas Markle, during one of his visits to Toronto. “My dad knew about [the relationship] from the start,” Meghan’s older brother Thomas Markle Jr told the Daily Mail. “He’s pretty happy about Harry.” With Suits on a shooting break until March, Markle “is free to spend all her time with Harry,” said a friend, and an insider tells WHO the pair are “inseparable.” For most of the past five weeks, the actress has been a fixture at Kensington Palace, where she has had security clearance since November to come and go as she likes.

Her co-star Patrick J.

Markle may move to London permanently by the end of the year, reported the Daily Mail, claiming Suits writers are “already looking at ways to write her out.” Both she and Harry have flagged the dream of family life, with the prince telling Sky News in May 2015, “Of course I would love to have kids right now, but there’s a process one has to go through. I don’t think you can force these things—it will happen when it’s going to happen.” Last March, Markle described her dream wedding gown to Glamour (“Classic and simple, perhaps with a modern twist”) and the next month told Best Health Magazine Canada what was on her bucket list: “I want to travel more and I can’t wait to start a family, but in due time.” n By Kate Halfpenny

Post-premiere, one critic asked why gay men date their lookalikes. “I don’t see it,” says Chris. “I’m 104kg, he’s ... I won’t say. And he’s a lot shorter. I call him a munchkin!”

I still don’t know why.” For Chris and Grant, the reason was clear. “We wanted to help people with a similar story navigate their own situation,” says Chris. Grant adds that “we saw it as an opportunity to start dialogues across Australia about the battles our community is facing. This homophobia and pain happens to so many families. It needs to stop.” Since Bride & Prejudice premiered, the pair say they have received “overwhelming” responses that are “99 per cent supportive.” It was Yvonne, who said she felt “like my son’s died,” who copped the most public criticism. Says Chris, “[People] felt she was insensitive. And I particularly feel for parents who have lost a child­—I think she meant the death of an idea of what her son would be: married, two kids, still in the Church. She may have been grieving, but she still said it.” Interestingly, Chris reveals that his parents have met past flames: “Mum has been to lunch with two of them. One stayed at their house. The truth about who they were was unspoken, but they knew.” For Grant, watching it all back has been “heartbreaking, and unfortunately it is not unique.” He cites an encounter that reminded him why the pair

That was always the hope.” Both men hint Yvonne and Geoff may yet change their tune. “What struck me,” says Grant, “is the love evident in their eyes, even if the words didn’t match what they were saying.

Rumer Willis

The actress, 28, has been honest about plastic surgery—“If it’s going to make me feel better, I won’t be ashamed of choices I make,” she has said—and it seems she has acted on that sentiment. Out in New York on Feb. 1, Willis debuted noticeably plumper lips, leading LA-based facial plastic surgeon Dr A. John Vartanian (who has not treated any of these stars) to believe she has had “lip enhancements and injections.” Canberra plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr Tony Tonks (who has likewise not treated any of these stars) agrees Willis’s lips have “been volumised by filler,” but also judges she has had “extensive” brow Botox, an early nose job “with a poor and unnatural result” and a possible upper eyelid blepharoplasty: “This has been well-performed and opens the eyes nicely and symmetrically.”

Pamela Anderson The Baywatch actress’s current appearance results from a less-is-more strategy, suggests Vartanian, who says her “more natural, less plastic” look is the result of “subtle use of Botox and fillers” and “some nonsurgical skin tightening around the jaw.” Tonks feels the 49-year-old may have had her cheek implants removed (“thank goodness”) but “this could also explain her facial-nerve weakness with loss of smile and eye opening on her right side,” which may be “a carry-over from what I suspect was a blunt injury years earlier.”

lips (“a sultry look, but shouts artificiality”), procedures to her upper eyelids, a surgical brow lift and a “well-executed” nose job with “greater nostril show.” Adds Tonks, “While a tip graft is possible, the final result is pleasing.”

She has been bluntly honest about going under the knife to reconstruct her nose and enlarge her boobs, saying, “Denying is lame. I don’t think you should be ashamed if you’ve made a change to yourself.” But the Mullumbimby-raised rapper has been more reticent when asked whether her infamous bum is the result of plastic surgery. “Y’all don’t need to be worrying about booty that’s above your weight class,” Azalea, 26, insisted to American show Wild ’N Out in August.

Brielle Biermann & Kim Zolciak-Biermann THEN The former Real Housewives of Atlanta mother–daughter duo are no strangers to the surgeon’s office. In October last year Kim, 38, itemised her procedures, which included Botox, breast implants and a tummy tuck. Meanwhile, her buzzed-about daughter, 19, conceded only to lip fillers. “[Fans] think I’ve had all this work done on my face,” Brielle told TV show The Doctors. “All I’ve done is my lips.”

needles get injected into the face to reduce acne scarring. Maguire’s biggest cost and change was a nose job late last year, which she said gave her new confidence: “It was such a little thing, but my nose made me feel so insecure.” Is she done now? Maybe not: “I’m thinking of having a boob job next.”

Kylie Jenner

Wearing a The Dolls House fringed jumpsuit, the 19-year-old put on a busty display on holiday on Jan. 31, sparking new rumours she has had a breast augmentation. In 2016, she put down her shape to her “time of the month,” denying in August she’d had implants: “Truth is, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve gained 15 pounds [7kg]. I’ve filled out.” The expert opinion? “Kylie has clearly had a breast augmentation,” says Tonks, who calls it “substantial” and obvious because of the “unnaturally increased upper-pole fullness.” The implant size “is excessive for her tissues to support in the long term,” he adds. “I would expect to see the implant descend, creating a double bubble. This will be corrected by surgery, so expect to see less photos of the lower part of her breast unsupported.”

n 2014, 19-year-old Syrian Doaa Al Zamel and her fiancé, Bassem, crammed with 500 other refugees onto a rusty fishing boat operated by smugglers in the hope of reaching Europe and peace. But after four terrifying days, their boat was deliberately rammed and capsized by pirates, leaving the passengers to drown. Saved by a floating ring that Bassem had found for her, Doaa, who could not swim, survived the sinking, only to see Bassem and dozens of others drown (only 11 survived the tragedy). As she floated amid corpses, body parts and debris, she took onto the ring two infant girls—Masa, 18 months, and Malak, 9 months—from two different families. In this extract from A Hope More Powerful than the Sea, author and UN High Commissioner for Refugees Melissa Fleming reveals Doaa and the children’s miraculous rescue, before tragedy struck again.

She couldn’t let Masa and Malak die now that rescue was so close. Finally, after two hours, a sailor looking out of the window of the lifeboat cried, “I see her!” Suddenly, the spotlight swivelled towards Doaa. A futuristic red capsule the size of a small bus floated before her, like something out of a movie. Men on the boat gazed down at her in astonishment, shocked to see such a slight young woman afloat on an ordinary inflatable beach ring, her bottom half submerged. A side door swung open and a man at its entrance called to Doaa and extended a pole to her. Doaa grabbed it and held on tight as they pulled her and the girls in.

Within minutes, hundreds of messages and calls started pouring in. Then one text message, from a Mohammad Dasuqi, caught her eye: “Doaa, I think you saved my niece Masa.” A photo was attached of a baby girl in a blue dress with white pansies. Doaa looked closely at the picture. The toddler smiling at the camera was indeed the same Masa that Doaa had cradled in her arms for four days at sea. She replied to the message immediately, relieved to finally be able to give someone some good news: “Yes, that is the same Masa who was rescued with me!” Doaa learnt that Dasuqi was the 28-year-old brother of Masa’s father, Imad, and was living as a refugee in Sweden with Masa’s oldest sister, Sidra, 8. Imad had booked passage for his family on the fishing boat in the hope of joining his brother in Sweden. Finding Masa’s family was a turning point for Doaa.

TRUMP’S FURY & FRUSTRATION

One week after US President Donald Trump ordered his controversial travel ban, US borders are back to normal—for now. On Jan. 27, Trump closed America’s doors to Syrian refugees indefinitely, to other refugees for 120 days and to citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries for 90 days. But on Feb. 3, a federal judge in Seattle lifted the ban after a submission from Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson. Ferguson argued the ban was unconstitutional and was causing “immediate and irreparable injury.” “What is our country coming to

when a judge can halt a Homeland Security travel ban and anyone, even with bad intentions, can come into US?” Trump asked on Twitter. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull also gave the president cause to vent. In a phone call on Jan. 28, Turnbull spoke to Trump of the agreement Australia made with the Obama administration in which the US would take up to 1,250 refugees from Australia’s offshore detention camps in exchange for refugees from US-run camps in Costa Rica. Trump tweeted, “I will study this dumb deal!”

White House press secretary Sean Spicer said the deal would go ahead, but the refugees would be subjected to “extreme vetting.”

Turnbull addressed the National Press Club on Feb. 1.

Kyle (pictured at age 4 with his mum, Debbie) is the youngest of three siblings but the only one with a passion for food, he says.

ALL IN THE FAMILY

Tim’s brother Justin is a baker and his dad, Darryl, “is still in the food industry,” he says. “He has stepped away from the cooking side now, but he’s proud of this.” While Kyle is self-taught, he says he picked up a few skills from his mother, Debbie.

or Kyle Mclean, a great evening consists of homecooked tuna mornay paired with a fine red wine and followed by an easy-flowing conversation over beers as footy plays on the telly. But this isn’t an act of romantic courting, it’s just a typical night out with pal Tim Attiwill at the Adelaide house Tim shares with three other single mates. For Tim, who turns 31 on Feb. 11, time is equally well spent at Kyle’s pad, just a 25-minute drive across town. Says Tim, with a glance towards Kyle, 27, who nods with an appreciative smile, “Your lamb shanks are pretty good, man.” As hard as Perth besties Bek Outred, 27, and Ash Brannan, 30, tried to flirt with Tim and Kyle, even the spontaneous yet very chaste kiss between Bek and Kyle that aired on Feb. 7 couldn’t sway the bachelors from their date with My Kitchen Rules destiny. “We aren’t here for love,” Tim tells WHO on Feb. 3. “At the end of the day, Kyle and I are here to win and when it comes down to it, if he had to choose between Bek and the $250,000, he’d probably chose the $250,000.” To prove their point, Kyle and Tim delivered a then-record-setting top score at their own Instant Kitchen, despite the distraction of their fellow Group One contestants mock-planning a wedding for Bek and Kyle, and midwives Karen Gawne and Ros Waters readily offering up their particular set of skills. But in the midst of rumours he also has a girlfriend outside the show and tabloids labelling him a “love rat”

for wooing multiple ladies, Kyle insists to WHO he is neither dating anyone at the moment nor actively seeking a relationship: “I don’t take a lot of things too seriously.” The kiss with Bek, he adds, was “a bit of a spur-of-the-moment thing,” saying that “whenever people joke about going on dates or going over to Perth and [Bek] cooking me dinner, that she’s going to give me the biggest serve or whatever, it’s all fun for me.” That’s not to say there wasn’t any attraction. “Oh, Kyle doesn’t need encouragement,” Tim says. “There were seven single people at that table, so there was definitely a lot of flirting going on between the two of them, that’s for sure.” Bek agrees the pair had a “good vibe” between them but remain just friends. “It’s only a kiss,” she says, and adds with a laugh, “What I would like is someone taller without a beard!” Without Bek and Ash to crush on when the girls were eliminated —Tim Attiwill in a cook-off with David Vu and Betty Banks, the guys concede solely focusing on MKR has severely hampered their social lives. “There’s been no wingmanning of late,” says Kyle, “but there will be some wingmanning going forward.” And while Tim maintains he is still single and happy, “I’m always copping a bit of flak from my settled friends who have children and are married and asking me when my wife is coming along,” he says. “My mum’s on my case, my nonna’s on my case and, yeah, I hear it everywhere.” The newfound scrutiny amuses Tim and Kyle, who met through mutual friends three years ago and bonded over their love of facial hair, brewed beverages, music festivals and

other common interests. “We’re very different people,” Tim, a former account executive at Adelaide radio station Fresh 92.7 FM, says of erstwhile bartender Kyle. “I’m highly strung, very planned, like to cross my t’s and dot my i’s, and I need structure. I’m an over-thinker and need to verbalise everything, so Kyle is the unfortunate one that has to listen to it.” Which is fine by Kyle. “Tim and I are polar opposites,” he says, “but we share the same views on the bigger picture and discuss everything from the smallest details to our grand plans.” Those plans began percolating in Who l 45

Of their cooking style, “I’d do my bits and he’d do his bits,” Tim says of him and Kyle, “and we’d then come together and plate up.”

RUBBING IT IN

“It was a great day and a great night,” says Kyle (right). “But going forward, we knew there were going to be high expectations.”

While some contestants thought the boys would serve up a sausage sizzle, they delivered tuna ceviche, spiced kangaroo and key lime pie. Even Tyson Murr said of the main with Kyle’s signature rub, “I would like that to be the standard.”

DID HE JUST SAY THAT? Not just good cooks, Brisbane newlyweds Alyse and Matt Jenner have achieved success in the rarified world of racing fashion, winning more than $70,000 in prizes in the past eight years. “We love Alyse and Matt,” says fellow Group Two competitor Amanda Eid of the electrical tender coordinator and the physiotherapist. “Matt’s a real gentleman and how he treats his partner is just gorgeous. He has the utmost respect for her and would do anything for her.” That’s what makes an upcoming, seemingly off-the-cuff comment by Matt to Broome teacher Amy Meeuwissen so shocking—Seven Network bills it as “one thing you never say to a woman.” Marvels Amanda, “I can’t believe he said it.” According to Matt, what he actually said “lasted two minutes in conversation and then it went to a different topic. I thought it was a nonevent.” Alyse adds the remark was intended as a playful compliment and, referring to Amy’s deckhand and model husband Josh, she says, “You can’t be married to someone like Josh and not have a sense of humour because you would be offended on an hourly basis.”

Alyse, 30, and Matt, 37, say they love reno shows but friends thought their cooking was TV-worthy.

Tim’s mind a year ago when he was in the middle of booking a travel adventure to escape from his workday routine and ended up engrossed in an MKR episode featuring Cheryl Harris and Matt Newman, the “cougar and cub” from Brisbane. Thinking he could fare better, he rang up Kyle straightaway. “He’s always looking for something pretty exciting to do,” Tim says, “so I said, ‘You can cook and I can cook, so let’s give it a crack.’ ” Meanwhile, Kyle—he had been studying small-business management, commerce and personal training plus working at a bar for a few months after travelling overseas—agreed to Tim’s proposal with one proviso: no desserts. “I said I was the meat-and-sauce man in this relationship,” Kyle says. “Tim argued a little bit and said that he could do meat and sauces as well, which I don’t deny he can, but ... ” Tim finishes: “I didn’t realise how good he was.” Kyle, who was born and raised in South Australia’s Barossa Valley, says he was probably 13 years old when he first got in the kitchen and was a grill master by 16. “I started working nights a lot when I was a teenager and mum would stock the fridge full of awesome groceries, but I couldn’t cook

Amy “is really good at calming me down,” says Tyson, “but she’s also probably one of the best at pushing me.”

After the Murrs scored 102 points, judge Pete Evans said, “I’m glad you’re in this competition.”

First, there was the matter of the unattainable puffed wheat. Then the frying of the deep fryer. By the time Tyson Murr burnt his hand on a pan during his and sister Amy’s Instant Restaurant, his screams could have reflected more than just physical pain. “Knowing you’re going to come up against problems in that sort of situation,” Tyson says, “that night, I demonstrated how I didn’t really deal with it too well.” But with the Murrs scoring a record-high 102 points for their ambitious menu of lambs’ brains, pork jowl and a chocolate and raspberry “discovery,” Tyson has found his own form of Zen. “I used to get quite worked up about it because I’m such a perfectionist,” he says, “but I’m starting to embrace that stress and just try to push it in the right direction rather than the wrong.” Amy, 30, a human-resources executive, hopes Tyson’s new attitude can help him pursue his food dream in earnest: “He has just got this real flair for cooking. I would say it’s innate.” After high school, Brisbanebased Tyson pursued different interests, but didn’t develop what he calls “a massive passion” for food until he left home. But buoyed by his experience on MKR, he has left his job as an Uber driver (“I had a 4.8 or 4.9,” he says of his rating. “All very polite and smiles!”) and is eager to get started on his new career. “If that means getting an apprenticeship or just getting in as a cook for experience, I just want to be in a restaurant’s kitchen.” As for attracting haters on social media, “It’s certainly not a good feeling,” Tyson says. “Amy and I might have been considered harsh critics around the table, but we were always fair about what we were served and the scores represented that.” And about that temper? Tyson adds, “I think we can say now that I’m not the angry, angry man.”

anything,” he recalls. “I ate two-minute noodles for a year or so and then one night I was like, ‘I’ve got all this good stuff, I might as well start using it.’ ” Tim’s path was more straightforward in country South Australia. “My dad’s a chef and my mum’s Italian,” he says, “so I grew up with food around me. When we were at home, anything he’d prepare, I’d help.” They now attribute their MKR success to coming into the competition unencumbered. “We both quit our jobs, we both don’t have mortgages, we both don’t have kids and we both don’t have partners,” Tim says, “so for us to detach from home was quite easy. All we did was think about food, talk about food, dream about food.” What the pair, who would love to do a travel show or teach cooking classes together, do have is each other. After their guests had been waved off and production packed up from their 100-point Instant Restaurant night, “Tim and I were just sitting there in a bit of a daze with a couple of cheeky grins on our faces and just a couple of beers,” Kyle says. “It was really good.” n By Cynthia Wang

It was like a blind bolt of lightning going, “You’re behaving as you did when you were 15, 16, 17, 18, 19. Like before you met Andy. What’s come back for you?” And it was that feeling of, “I am alone in the world. I need to find love and feel someone nurturing.” Yes, you need to have chemistry, but more for me now, it has to be a compatibility of energy and minds.

“Be OK with missing them and then be open to letting somebody really fantastic in”

The gift was going back into my experiences as a teenager or as a young adult working through some turmoil, and now seeing clearly the destructive behaviour I was inflicting upon myself. That also holds me accountable for my behaviour now. Had you been reverting back to things you did in the past?

My rudder for 13 years was Andy, the person who anchored me, calling me on my crap. When a parent loses their partner, it is

I stopped reacting to that knee-jerk feeling of being alone. Some people go to food, smoking, alcohol, sex ... I just got OK with feeling uncomfortable. And then I got OK with being clearer in terms of, “I feel like I miss somebody,” and it’s like, “OK, just miss them.” Be OK with missing them and then be open to letting somebody really fantastic in. Do your children factor in your dating life?

I’m not willing to bring somebody into their lives until he is someone

So how do you move on and still remember Andy?

A few months after Andy died, as I watered the jasmine plants on the deck one day, I saw Indi running frantically towards me. “Look, Mummy, look!” she squealed. She lifted up her little hands towards me and there, cupped between her two palms, she held a huge black-andwhite butterfly the size of a man’s hand. “Daddy’s here,” she said. “He’s come to see us and he even has a broken wing.” It took my breath away. Jesse and Indi had opened the front door to grab the mail from the mailbox and there the butterfly was, perfectly laid out across the doormat, like a gift that had been specially delivered, waiting to be collected by its rightful owner. Indi put some tissue paper inside a Tupperware container and made a home for her broken butterfly. She carried it around lovingly and told everyone she met that it was her daddy. That butterfly was such a thing of beauty, but it was clearly broken. It reminded me of Andy’s body after he’d taken his last breath; his body was still a thing of beauty even though he was no longer here. The metaphor of the butterfly, seeing the representation of someone in the world after they have gone, is very poignant for me, and that’s what the future is about now: Andy’s legacy of transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary.

“They’re really close,” Whitfield says of Jesse and Indigo (at home in 2014).

Andy (in Sydney in 2010) was a doting dad, says Whitfield.

I can really trust to add value. Jesse, my son, is a beautiful, grounded, sporty, emotional, chatty, charming little guy, so the person that I want in his life is an inspiring human being who is certain in his sense of self. And for your daughter, Indigo?

If she sees a male figure or somebody else’s dad and she really likes him, she’ll come up and say, very matter-offact, “When will we be getting another daddy? When will you be getting married again? Because I’d really like us to have another daddy.” So that makes me even more conscious of who I bring into their lives.

and I were. It’s way more real to be saying, “Well, Andy used to describe my hands and feet as paws, and I’d be much more happy in a bear community than in a human community,” ... bringing it into the context of if he were here, that’s what he would say. You also remain close to Andy’s mother, Pat. We know each other back to front. When you go through something like that, everything from changing your husband’s nappy, which is the last thing in the world you’d expect to be doing, to her asking me whether I’ve got a boyfriend, or being able to see that I am seeing somebody and going, “Oh, they’re just not up to the job for you,” for her to be able to say that without collapsing into the sadness of Andy not being here, she is remarkable.

“I don’t want their entire recollection of their dad to be of him dying”

But you don’t shy away from talking about memories with Andy or having photos of him around the house.

Absolutely. This is one of the reasons they haven’t seen the documentary yet [see box]. I don’t want their entire recollection of their dad to be their dad dying of cancer, or Spartacus, because that’s not who Andy

Although Whitfield knows her husband was only trying to be loving when he told then 5-yearold son Jesse, “You’re the man of the house now,” she says, “I’d say to him, ‘Your job is to have fun and do whatever you need to do. Be who you are.’”

While Jesse has an “historical reference” of his dad, Whitfield says, Indigo’s “conscious awareness is [only] of her last few years.”

Andy and Vash ti, in London in 19 who fell in love in Bondi in 20 98, were married 01.

Whitfield with pals (from left) Lilibet Foster, Jai Courtney and Sam Maydew.

Without knowing how he would respond to his last treatments in 2011, Andy and Vashti Whitfield forged on with director Lilibet Foster, producer Sam Maydew and close family friend Jai Courtney to film intimate details of Andy’s cancer journey and his last days. “If you have the capacity to influence because of your platform, why wouldn’t you?” Vashti says. “That’s where Andy was coming from.” The result is the documentary Be Here Now, which was released last April. “I’ve spoken to a lot of people who have seen it,” says Andy’s mum, Pat. “I think it’s been positively received, which is all you could really ask for.”

It was starting to recognise the difference between your own grief and the reality of the situation that’s far more empowering. So when I watch the documentary, I would do things completely differently now, right? I would have supported Andy more to go for alternative medicine. I would have not projected my fears onto him. And had I watched it that much earlier, I think I would have been overwhelmed by my not handling it in a different way, which was part of my grief, of thinking there was some way I could have changed the situation. Whereas I don’t believe that at all now. I mean, I do, but I have a much more philosophical standpoint on it. Which is? It’s one of the most important things about time—learning to differentiate between the stages of grief you’re going through. n

Marriage, bab

& my comeb After a few years in no-man’s-land, actor Dan MacPherson is recharged

B

(premiering on Thurs., Feb. 16, on Fox8) that marks his first major US network series. By the time he landed in Los Angeles, the 36-year-old had received notice he would be one of the leads in an upcoming reboot of the popular UK drama Strike Back. It was serendipitous that West was on his flight; years before, she had laid down some home truths he recalled in a note he sent her after that flight. “When I mentioned I was still racing and training some 25 hours a week,” he wrote, “you tactfully but firmly told me there’s no way I could commit so much effort to something outside my career—and still succeed the way I wanted to.” Now MacPherson, speaking to WHO at his Santa Monica home on Jan. 17, sounds relaxed and recharged. He talks excitedly as he recalls the whirlwind of landing that role on APB: “I was down to the final two for a different show, didn’t get that, then ended up finding out at 6 PM on a Friday that I was starting at 6 AM in Chicago on Monday morning. There wasn’t time to make up a back-story or investigate a character. I pretty much packed a suitcase, jumped straight on a plane and brought myself up to speed.”

“I wasn’t committed. I needed to change”

IN IT TOGETHER

MacPherson (with Zoe Ventoura in LA on Jan. 29) says they have “a very modern and adaptable relationship.”

FEAT07_Dan Macpherson.lay.indd 52

MacPherson and wife Zoe Ventoura celebrated a year of marriage on Nov. 26. “The first year was challenging because of all the travel,” he reveals, “but we managed to carve out some time for a getaway up the California coast.”

After three years co-starring in Seven Network’s Wild Boys, MacPherson and Ventoura became engaged.

oarding a plane in Chicago late last year, Dan MacPherson looked up and saw a familiar face. It was Caryn West, an acting coach he worked with in 2012, the year he moved to the US to further his successful acting career at home in Australia and in the UK. Seeing West sparked a conversation—and memories of the self-described “Australian alpha male” who had assumed Hollywood would welcome him with open arms. It hadn’t. And after too many failed auditions, or what MacPherson calls “a good couple of years of being in no-man’sland,” he had figured out why. “I wasn’t committed,” he tells WHO. “I wasn’t focused. I needed to change things up. I decided I had to quit.” What MacPherson eventually “quit” were extracurricular activities and lifelong hobbies he felt were holding him back, such as his beloved triathlons, and the Dancing with the Stars hosting gig that brought him home for months at a time. “Anything,” he tells WHO, “that was distracting me from succeeding in America.” It worked. MacPherson had been in Chicago filming his role on APB, a new police drama

Ending his Dancing with the Stars run in 2014 was not a decision MacPherson (in Newcastle in October) took lightly: “I loved live television, but it was time for a change.”

APB stars Justin Kirk and Caitlin Stasey, who joined Neighbours three years after MacPherson’s departure.

“For years,” MacPherson (with Dancing with the Stars co-host Sonia Kruger in 2008) tells WHO, “I knew in the back of my mind I could count on that job if things didn’t work out in LA.”

HARD YARDS

Living in “the most competitive acting hotbed in the world,” says MacPherson, “you doubt yourself. You doubt your ability. My mantra: that stuff is out of your control. So work to control what you can: classes, coaching and your visa!”

Sitting still does not seem to come easily for MacPherson. He is the first to admit he never seems to stay in one place for too long, partly owing to his now-hectic filming schedule. He shot MTV’s The Shannara Chronicles in New Zealand last year, commuted between Chicago and Los Angeles for APB and will shoot Strike Back in Europe starting in March. Luckily, each allows MacPherson, an exercise nut who was heavy in his youth and once said that “I was naturally more suited to being an athlete than an actor,” to get his adrenaline fix. “Fitness will always be a part of my life,” he says. “But now I train more specifically for jobs. Right now, I’m learning martial arts, doing a weights program, working with rifles and pistols—so many new skills.” This renewed focus on his work has not dulled MacPherson’s love for his wife, actress Zoe Ventoura, 35. The pair met and fell in love on the 2011 set of Seven’s Wild Boys; in November 2015, they quietly married in Noosa, Queensland. Yet just as quickly as he began to “knuckle down and work hard—reading more books, seeing more plays, working more closely with acting and dialogue coaches, reading and

HELPING HAND

The siblings have each battled weight issues, with Brodie saying Dan helped her “get my arse out the door in the morning” to work out.

Kids, he says, are still a way off—at least, “at the moment. But it’s kind of ridiculous that you have to consider and talk about filming schedules when you’re trying to figure out when and how you’ll fit in parenthood. That’s what we’ve had to do over the past year or two. But the time is certainly getting closer. We both say we’d like to be more stable in terms of our travelling schedules. Then we talk to our friends who do have kids, and they tell us there is no right time. You’ve just got to do it.” If acting ever falls by the wayside, perhaps politics could be his next calling. His US visa is now a green card and at a time when its immigration laws are in flux MacPherson admits to some nerves. “I do get up and spend the first half-hour of my day drinking coffee and getting angry about what has been said in American and sometimes Australian politics,” he concedes. “Global politics in general! It’s a very confusing, complex time.” Even with outspoken celebrities currently in the populist crosshairs, MacPherson, who maintains a pointedly political Twitter feed, refuses to stay silent. “I don’t worry about the trolls,” he says. “I’m fortunate enough to have a vocal following on there, and feel I should use that. In a time of political diversion and subterfuge, certain voices have a responsibility to keep everyone accountable. So I spend a lot of time trying to find the truth in the smokescreens. Because we see our future here. I love America and I love being in America. Hence I’m quite vocal about its future. This country has afforded me a great lifestyle, and now opportunities for a whole new stage in my career.” n By Nicholas Fonseca

“I’m just a former chubby girl who awkwardly loved leopard,” Brodie has joked.

“Life is about so much more than the number on the scales,” Brodie told her Instagram followers.

MacPherson is appearing alongside some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, including Reese Witherspoon and Oprah Winfrey, in Selma director Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time, an upcoming $100 million film adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s 1963 sci-fi novel. He did not actually film scenes with them, but does have a small but pivotal role as father to Jasper Jones star Levi Miller’s Calvin O’Keefe. “To work with Ava was the very reason I auditioned,” MacPherson says. “To be hand-chosen by her was incredible. And she didn’t realise I was Australian, playing father to another Australian actor! Some directors sort of knock you around, but she directed me with a feather. It was certainly a wonderful way to finish 2016.”

writing more scripts,” she landed a job in Australia on Nine’s Hyde and Seek. “That’s probably one of the reasons our relationship has remained successful,” says MacPherson. “We’re in the same boat. Over the last two years, Zoe and I have seen ourselves traversing the globe in search of the same goal. We support each other.” MacPherson is aware distance can take its toll on relationships, but he is not scared they spend too much time apart: “We’re just really good at it. We can operate independently. And when one of us says, ‘No, time’s up,’ we’re fortunate we can jump on a plane and head to where we’re needed. We’re modern in that sense.” Still, the Sydneyborn star says “the first year of marriage was challenging for us in a lot of ways, exactly because of the travel.” Any lessons learnt? “I don’t know if I’ve learnt anything new, at least in the big headline sense. But we’ve definitely learnt how to continue to consolidate the commitment we made on the day when we got we married.” When they are together, the pair are “really quite easily pleased,” says MacPherson. “It’s simple stuff like cooking at home and watching movies together. Zoe’s a big reader, so she’s gotten me doing that a lot more. It’s a luxury to be at home, so when we are, we really make the most of it. We’re total homebodies, maximising that quality time. We go through a lot of TV and a lot of box sets!” Such as? “We watched The OA on Netflix over the Christmas break. That was kind of mystifying.” At some point, MacPherson reckons, there could be a new addition that might upend their breezy days and nights together at home.

MacPherson is close to his sister Brodie, who has said he helped her to lose 60kg. “She’s generous,” he demurs. “I just wanted her to make the change at 24, not 34. I knew how much more life there was to enjoy. I didn’t want her to wait.”

In the early 1960s three black female mathematicians helped launch a man into orbit. Now, this Oscar-nominated story rockets onto the screen in ‘Hidden Figures’

n 1962, John Glenn became the first American to orbit Earth, but the heroic astronaut would have failed to launch without the efforts of a group that included three brilliant mathematicians, minds so gifted they were referred to within NASA as “human computers.” Yet these key players in the history of the US space program—Katherine G. Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan and Mary Jackson—were basically forgotten in the annals of history, their groundbreaking contributions obscured by the long shadow of racism in the Jim Crow–era South. “I thought it was historical fiction,” says Oscar winner Octavia Spencer (The Help). “To find out it was actually true? It was about time to credit them for their contributions.” Hidden Figures (out Feb. 16)—which has scored Oscar nods for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actress (Spencer) and Best Adapted Screenplay and on Jan. 29 won Outstanding Performance by a Cast at the SAG Awards—is all about giving the women that long-overdue recognition. The movie, directed by Theodore Melfi (St Vincent), stars Taraji P. Henson (Empire), Spencer and Janelle Monáe (Moonlight) as Johnson, Vaughan and Jackson, respectively, and focuses on their professional hurdles and the friendship that sustains them amid the sexism and forced segregation of the era. (Kevin Costner, Kirsten Dunst and Jim Parsons co-star as fellow NASA employees.) It’s a bond that carried over for the three actresses, too. “It’s a serious movie, but in

order to breathe life into the seriousness of the role, you have to have moments of levity,” Spencer says. “There was no lack of that on the set. Taraji, being the social bug that she is, likes to entertain people. She would have us over to her house and cook for us.” Still, Henson says, no-one doubted the magnitude of the stories they were telling. “The film is bigger than me. Bigger than any award. On these wonderful women’s shoulders we ride.” After 60 years of their stories being in the darkness, it took the daughter of a NASA research scientist to

bring the women of Hidden Figures into the spotlight. Writer Margot Lee Shetterly’s father worked with Johnson, Vaughan and Jackson, and the author learnt about the ladies through him. Shetterly’s 55-page book proposal for Figures eventually made the rounds in Hollywood and caught the attention of Melfi. “I couldn’t believe there were black women at NASA and that they were segregated from the white people at the same time they were working on the same project,” Melfi says. “I was floored that we didn’t know anything about these women.” Before shooting began in Atlanta in March last year, Melfi and Henson visited 98-year-old Johnson at her home in Virginia to learn more

about her experiences firsthand. “We sat and talked and went through photo albums,” Henson says. “Her children were there, and her grandchildren. I really felt a responsibility when her children met me. They were like, ‘We couldn’t think of a better actress to play our mom.’ I was like, ‘No pressure!’ ” Johnson was surprised that anyone found her story so compelling, Melfi says. “She said multiple times, ‘I don’t know why you’re making a movie about me. I just did my work,’ ” he says. “She’s just so humble and doesn’t understand what she’s done to pave the way for other women or women of colour.” Melfi set out to celebrate just how special Johnson and her colleagues were—and to pay

tribute to good old-fashioned brainpower. “We don’t have parades for mathematicians, we have parades for astronauts,” he says. “You don’t think about all the thousands of people who worked on that capsule and crunched the numbers and were integral in getting that into space.” To that end, the production sought to depict historical events with great accuracy, if only on a faster timetable. Case in point: in the film, Henson, as Johnson, has to compute the stats for Glenn’s landing in minutes. In reality, she had three days. “What’s dramatised is the way things happened, but not the fact that they happened,” Melfi says. Besides, the facts alone are more than enough. Johnson became a trusted ­member of Glenn’s flight team and the first AfricanAmerican woman to sit in on NASA briefings. She was responsible for the equations that led to Glenn—he died on Dec. 8 at age 95—both launching and landing safely for his 1962 orbit of Earth. Henson, who failed a college maths course, says that mastering rocket science– level equations to play Johnson helped her

BIGGEST BLUNDER

“Her hairstyle doesn’t compliment the style of this dress.”

JENNIFER LOPEZ

New York, Aug. 28 “Jennifer certainly knows how to work an outfit. This is a dress to be noticed in and she has accessorised perfectly.”

TOP RANKING:

1 KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN

“The earrings, hairstyle and makeup really work with the choker.”

LIL’ KIM

New York, July 11 “The dress looks a little too short for Kim and wearing her hair up would have added a layer of sophistication.”

BIGGEST BLUNDER “The jeans are just a little too short.”

Jacquie Aiche choker

2 KENDALL JENNER

“She has doubledipped here and pulled it off.”

3 BELLA HADID

“The hoodie and the choker are too much of a mismatch for me.”

CHARLOTTE McKINNEY

Los Angeles, Aug. 10 “Charlotte looks great, but the jeans are a little too cropped. Longer pants would have added just the right amount of elegance.”

ALESSANDRA AMBROSIO

Los Angeles, Aug. 22 “Alessandra rarely takes a step wrong. Her handbag, shoes and sunglasses match the bodysuit, and the skirt adds a certain timelessness to the look.”

hat’s your daily skincare regimen? I cleanse every morning and apply a gentle day cream with SPF. At night I double cleanse with foaming and cream cleansers from the Olay Total Effects range [she is a face of the brand] and finish with a night cream. I’ve noticed the benefits in my skin from using a different moisturiser for day and night. Any summer skincare secrets? Using a moisturiser with SPF is imperative. Also, keep your hydration up. Drink lots of water and always wash your face with fresh water after swimming, then reapply a moisturiser to keep your skin hydrated. Summer is all about having radiant skin that glows. What is your ideal look for a date night with your husband [Buddy Franklin]? I like to keep it fresh on date nights. My husband likes it when I don’t wear lots of makeup so I tend to apply a little bit of mineral powder, brush my brows up and fill them in, put on one coat of mascara and some lip balm. I might apply a little bronzer and highlighter if I get the chance. I like looking fresh and not too “done.” What are your beach-bag essentials? Sunscreen and a bottle of cold water with some fresh lemon. Also, a wide-brimmed beach hat to keep my face protected from the sun, lip balm and rose-water spray to spritz my face. What expert beauty tips have you learnt through modelling? Some makeup artists massage my face before applying any makeup. It makes such a difference: your skin looks fresher and it can help remove any fluid or puffiness in your face. Also, it feels so good! What does a day off entail? A boxing class, breakfast with friends followed by some sunshine and swimming in the ocean and then home to catch up on a Netflix series.

Highlighters are amazing for illuminating areas on the face, but actress Lea Michele’s manicurist, Jenna Hipp, takes it further and applies it to Michele’s hands “to help mask any imperfections and keep them looking youthful,” she says. To mimic this effect, gently dust the highlighter from your wrist to your nail bed.

Blake Lively’s hairstylist, Rod Ortega, ensures the actress’s locks don’t fly away by using a few spritzes of Elnett hairspray. “It adds volume without leaving the hair stiff and sticky, and gives hold while still being able to brush through it,” says Ortega. Less is more with styling sprays, he warns. “The more you use, the duller your hair will look.”

Nailing the perfect manicure is as simple as 1-2-3 for actress and singer Mandy Moore’s manicurist, Michelle Saunders. Pick pink, seal the look and be patient! Her choice for Mandy is Essie polish in Mademoiselle, a chic sheer shade that suits every skin tone. Apply a base coat, then two coats of polish. Swipe a top coat along the edge of each nail and underneath to prevent chipping. “Wait two to three minutes in between each coat and at least 10 minutes when you’re finished to ensure it doesn’t get ruined,” says Saunders.

MOVIE

FIFTY SHADES DARKER

STARRING: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Kim Basinger The second instalment of the naughty film trilogy sees the return of Johnson and Dornan as Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, respectively. It will also, one hopes, find a more positive critical response than 2015’s Fifty Shades of Grey, which was accused of a thin plot and barely there chemistry between the two leads. This time round, the enterprise takes on the air of a psychological thriller, as Anastasia attempts to break it off with Christian only to be pulled back into his orbit when she realises she cannot stop thinking about him. (Damned hormones!) Basinger­—who famously scorched the screen in 9 1/2 Weeks—and Bella Heathcote join the cast as two of Christian’s many former lovers. (Out now)

Dornan’s Christian Grey again unmasks his desires.

Johnson has said she and Dornan had rituals before filming sex scenes—a shot of whisky for her, push-ups for him.

Q&A

CHARLES ESTEN

Laid-back looker Esten, 51, is back on another season of ‘Nashville’ (returns Sun., Feb. 12, 7.30 PM; Showcase)—and coming to Australia for the first time to play the CMC Rocks Qld festival in late March.

Nashville is back from the dead with new producers. What can you tell us about this season? You won’t see every character having their story taken care of every week. We used to do that— a lot of exposition but not much subtext or silence. We’re letting the show breathe, take its time and trust in the power of the connection between these characters. You moved your family from LA to Nashville to film the show. Your children were younger then. Tell us a bit about them now. Addie is my youngest. She’s 17. She’s an extremely good soccer player. Chase is my son, 18, a freshman in college studying aerospace engineering and climbing a few mountains out in Colorado. My oldest is Taylor. She’s 21 and just released her first EP. It’s just so good—and I have no fingerprints on that thing at all! You moved them at a tender time. How did they handle it? I did feel bad.

Taylor was in her last year of high school. But we were always a tight family. I knew how amazing Nashville was, that I was meant to be here. I could only hope it worked for them. And it sure did. Addie beat leukaemia as a child. How did that change you? It realigns your priorities. So much you think is important the day before a diagnosis just falls away. It makes clear what is and isn’t important. It makes you more fearless about living life. It made everything in our family sparkle just a little bit more. You have an economics degree? I do. Did you catch a lot of that in my performance? I’ll be honest: it was always just a back-up plan. My true major in college was my band. We toured every weekend. And on top of that, I met my wife [at uni], so I don’t think I wasted a cent. Have you thought about your set list for the Australian shows? My band would laugh out loud if they heard you say that. I’m notorious for getting it to them about 10 minutes before the show! Who is the most surprising famous Nashville fan you’ve met? That’s easy. I was at a Golden Globes party when P. Diddy tapped me on the shoulder, leaned in and whispered in my ear: “I’m a Nashville fanatic.” My brains fell out. Is Connie Britton’s hair as amazing in real life as it looks on TV? [Laughs] It absolutely is! Let me say, there are no special effects when it comes to Connie Britton’s hair. It is the real deal.

Instead, he hews a life of unrewarding routine out of responsibility to his family. Yet Troy, full of big talk and self-righteous anger, comes close to wrecking their lives, too.

MARCH 20–APRIL 18

There are many Arians for whom this Valentine’s Day will be the one to remember, and even if your relationship is looking a little sad it’s worth pulling out all the stops to reignite the spark. If that’s a bridge too far, give things a little more time. Venus will be onside for many more weeks helping you find your mojo—and the magic. For more, phone 1902 261 655.

TAURUS

APRIL 19–MAY 20

In a few weeks’ time, Venus will enter your sign, setting the stage for love and helping put a rocky relationship back on the tracks. So if Valentine’s Day fails to deliver, what is coming for you is worth waiting for. By contrast, if you’re wondering when to name the day, look to October onwards to set arrangements in stone.

In the main, these developments are likely to involve your career and your place in the world, but given that many romances reach a critical point on or near Valentine’s Day, a relationship could be in the mix.

If you haven’t yet made an approach to an individual or an organisation that could help manifest your dreams and ambitions, it’s time to get out there. Bring your dearest dreams to the front of the queue and stop believing that all good things come to those who wait. They don’t. It’s those with passion and persistence who achieve their goals. For more, phone 1902 261 655.

It is time to speak your mind and create an atmosphere in which a new romantic start can be made. In some cases, this means reaching out to someone to whom you are deeply attracted and, in others, recapturing the spark that brought you together in the first place. Don’t allow pride to stand in the way of your future happiness. For more, phone 1902 261 655.

If you’re getting married or engaged, you’re perfectly in sync with your stars. Nonetheless, the same could be said of a relationship that is in deep trouble. However much you believe fate is to blame for your misfortune, you have made choices along the way and, of course, what you do in the wake of current events is entirely up to you.

Leave no instinct unfollowed, Capricorn—once your heart and mind are fully open, anything can happen. For more, phone 1902 261 655.

With the year’s first eclipse behind you and two more to come in August, 2017 is a year of groundbreaking events. For some Aquarians, these happenings revolve around your career and place in the world, but for most of you a relationship is the focus of great change. And quite what this means could become clear this week. For more, phone 1902 261 655.

The English actor, comedian and host of The Late Late Show, 38, says he’s looking forward to seeing Beyoncé at the Grammy Awards (airing Mon., Feb. 13, midday; on Fox8). “I don’t know if I’ll get to,” he tells WHO, “but hopefully!”

You hosted the Tony Awards last June. How will the Grammys be different? The Tonys is a more traditional hosting job. With the Grammys, you’re not in the show that much, just ushering stuff around. But we’re gonna try to make it as fun as possible. So can we expect a Carpool Karaoke spoof? They take so long to film, they take a long time to edit, and there’s never been one that’s been shorter than 6 minutes, so there just really isn’t the time! Your daughter [Carey, 2] is a little young, but have you bounced any jokes off your wife, Julia, or son Max, 5? Well, I don’t think I should be running them past my son! What’s your favourite Grammy moment? The first time I was lucky enough to go [in 2015], Annie Lennox came onstage with Hozier. I hadn’t seen her sing in so long. I’ll never forget it. You did a charity video with George Michael that paved the way for Carpool Karaoke. What memories from that really stick with you today? I just felt incredibly lucky to be in his orbit for a moment. Prince, Leonard Cohen, there were just so many incredible voices and minds [who died last year]. I’m grateful I was here and got to see them and listen to them. The late George Michael sang with Corden in a 2011 sketch for Comic Relief.

“I love telling stories,” says Kennedy (in January) of acting.

Ones to watch

Marny Kennedy The Melbourne-born actress wasn’t even born when Crocodile Dundee hit cinemas in 1986, but that doesn’t mean the opportunity to play a young Noelene Hogan in Seven’s Hoges (Sun., Feb. 12 & 19 at 8.30 PM) wasn’t a big deal. “I discovered just how humble Paul [Hogan] and Noelene’s beginnings were,” the 24-yearold tells WHO, revealing her own beginnings.

1

SHE’S FROM A CREATIVE FAMILY. “My mum owned a dance school,” says Kennedy. “I was still in nappies for my first dance concert.” Then, when the school introduced acting, she discovered her true passion. HER ACTING DEBUT CAME AT AGE 12. She won the Best Young Actor AFI for her debut role in TV’s Mortified. But transitioning from child star to career actor was hard. “I had to honestly ask myself, ‘Is this what I want to do?’ ” explains Kennedy, who eventually took two years off. However, her acting passion was reignited when she did a masterclass in 2015. The part in Hoges came immediately after. THE GIRL CAN RIDE. At 13 she started working on The Saddle Club even though she had “never ridden a horse in my life.” Now, horse riding is her “favourite outlet. I wouldn’t consider it a talent—my ability to make a mean cheese platter is—but it’s my favourite way to escape.” SHE HARNESSED THE POWER OF SOCIAL MEDIA. More than 115,000 people follow Kennedy on Instagram and she is using the platform to highlight charities she is passionate about, such as Live Below the Line: “My passion has always been humanitarianism.”

BOLLYWOOD to HOLLYWOOD After Priyanka Chopra (left) became Miss World in 2000, she established herself as a mega Bollywood star. Even so, Chopra, 34, risked it all to become the first South Asian actor to lead a US TV series when she signed on to FBI drama Quantico in 2015.

A badminton player turned model, Deepika Padukone, 31, started acting in the 2006 romantic comedy Aishwarya and has earned multiple awards—and multimillion pay cheques. She now makes her Hollywood debut in xXx: Return of Xander Cage. “She’s one of the biggest stars in the world,” gushed Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson of Chopra, his Baywatch co-star.

Salma Hayek and François-Henri Pinault tied the knot in 2009.

MORE ‘GIRLS’

Gone Girls? Maybe not. Reflecting on her gamechanging TV dramedy in a chat with The Hollywood Reporter, Lena Dunham said, “Oh, we’re doing the movie. I’d just want to leave enough space so that we are finding [the characters] in a super different place than we left them. If HBO paid for the Sex and the City ones, they’d better pay for ours.” Reminded by her producing partner Jenni Konner that, in fact, a movie studio foots the bill for SATC’s film trilogy, Dunham cracked: “Oh, we may have more trouble with that.” Watch this space.

WE’LL WAIT Miranda Kerr has hinted she and fiancé Evan Spiegel will wait until they are hitched to have sex. Talking to the UK’s The Independent, Kerr let slip that she and her Snapchat CEO beau do not use birth control.

Kate and Gerry McCann have lost a legal battle with a former Portuguese detective whose 2008 book claimed the British couple covered up their daughter Madeleine’s death. In 2015, the McCanns sued Goncalo Amaral, who at one time oversaw the probe into Madeleine’s 2007 disappearance, and won more than $700,000 (they had sought $1.6 million), but the decision was overturned.
