ALREADY MARRIED? Things may be heating up for Kylie Minogue and her new man, Joshua Sasse, but friends are worried the pop star could be destined for yet more heartache – following reports he could already be married! The 47-year-old singer couldn’t resist a cheeky smile while holding the British actor’s hand on their October 16 theatre date in London, but it was only in August that Josh ignited rumours by commenting, ‘My wife will say I pretty much wear the same thing every day of my life.’ While Josh’s rep insists ‘he’s never been married’,
onlookers couldn’t help but notice the 27-year-old suave hunk was wearing a suspicious gold band on his wedding ﬁnger at New York Fashion Week in July. It’s the second public outing for Josh and Kylie, who met while she was guest starring in his US TV show Galavant. But in what could be a premonition, Kylie recently confessed she hasn’t always made the best decisions in love, admitting, ‘Maybe too good-looking is where I’ve been going wrong.’ Let’s hope history doesn’t repeat itself!

GETS HER GROOVE BACK Following a rough few weeks, Jesinta Campbell refused to let the critics get her down as she hung out with fellow David Jones ambassadors Jessica Gomes, Montana Cox and Jason Dundas at the Caulﬁeld Cup on October 17. However, the 24-year-old admits she still struggles for acceptance in the TV industry. ‘I get told all the time that I’m too young, and when I ﬁrst started out people would say you can’t do the weather because you don’t relate to mums and dads at home,’ she says. ‘But I hope that my actions and my words have kind of proved all the TV executives wrong.’

JLaw’s pay fight
We already loved Jennifer Lawrence thanks to her brutal honesty, ﬁne acting skills, laughout-loud antics and her fondness for food, and now she’s given us another reason – she’s a kick-arse feminist wanting equal rights! The 25-year-old wrote an outspoken essay for pal Lena Dunham’s newsletter Lenny last week, addressing the gender wage gap in Hollywood. Jennifer reveals that last year’s Sony emails leak angered her when she saw the disparity between her pay and that of some of her male American Hustle co-stars. ‘I’d be lying if I didn’t say there was an element of wanting to be liked that inﬂuenced my decision to close the deal without a real
ﬁght. I didn’t want to seem “diﬃcult” or “spoiled”,’ she wrote. ‘At the time, that seemed like a ﬁne idea, until I saw the payroll on the internet and realised every man I was working with deﬁnitely didn’t worry,’ Jen continued. ‘Jeremy Renner, Christian Bale, and Bradley Cooper all fought and succeeded in negotiating powerful deals for themselves. If anything, I’m sure they were commended for being ﬁerce and tactical.’ Far from being oﬀended, Bradley dubbed Jen’s Lenny rant ‘fantastic’. ‘Would people listen if another woman said it?’ he remarked. Meanwhile, JLaw’s essay has even won support from US Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Go girl!

THE BOYS HIT THE BEACH, SHOWING THEIR FINE PHYSIQUES IN THE PROCESS
s tonight’s exciting finale approaches, Sam Frost’s suitors are spending their last days of sworn secrecy with close friends. For finalist Sasha, that meant hanging out with fallen contestants Dave and Davey. But as the 30-year-old showed off his spectacular physique over the weekend, it became clear The
SAM: ‘MICHAEL’S A 9.3!’
Sasha often makes Sam nervous… we can see why!
Hold up – let’s not forget about Michael! Sam says he was the best kisser of all, scoring him a ‘9.3’ out of 10. Ooh la la! The former pro soccer player, 34, was so certain of his connection with Sam, he picked out an engagement ring before the ﬁnale ﬁlmed. ‘We are very close and I couldn’t imagine life without her after the connection we formed,’ he tells OK!. So what’s the ring like? ‘My sister has a jewellery company… The brilliant cut is what I like, something classic. Sam will make a stunning bride.’
Bachelorette may have already dropped a huge hint about who wins! Chatting to OK!, Sam says of her chosen guy, ‘We always had a strong connection and the chemistry, so it was really a no-brainer.’ Indeed, early on in the series, Sam was lost for words as she surveyed construction worker Sasha’s buff bod during a one-on-one date! Draw your own conclusions… Michael spent the day in Melbourne… days after he was spotted stocking up on nappies for his niece. Babies on the brain, Michael?
Protective Carey takes newborn Evelyn on one of her ﬁrst outings
THIS IS 61?!
Talk about turning back time! Supermodel Christie Brinkley appears to be getting younger every year. The bombshell – who is 61 (no, that’s not a misprint) – says the secret to her eternal youth is a healthy vegetarian
diet and always looking on the bright side. ‘Nutrition is an amazing way to contribute to your own wellbeing, and, of course, exercise and attitude,’ she says, adding, ‘A positive attitude can work wonders.’
Christie swears by positive thinking, saying it brings ‘a sparkle to your eye’
She’s only been a mother for four weeks, but Carey Mulligan is already setting some ground rules for her daughter, Evelyn. ‘No make-up, no piercings, no tattoos,’ says the 30-year-old star, who only recently conﬁrmed the sex of her baby when she appeared on a UK chat show. Little Evelyn will also have to get used to the country life while mucking around on Mum and Dad’s farm! ‘I like waking up in the morning and putting on whatever’s by the side of my bed, and putting on Wellington boots and then walking up a steep
hill. And not wearing any make-up,’ Carey says of the property in the English countryside of Devon, which she shares with muso husband Marcus Mumford, 28, the family’s cocker spaniel, Rambo, and now – of course – Evelyn! But bub better not get too comfortable, because the MulliganMumford clan will be on the move again soon – with dad Marcus headed for Australia to tour with his band Mumford & Sons next month, while Carey’s currently on the promotional circuit for her latest ﬂick, Suﬀragette.

‘I’LL BE A STRICT MUM!’
SCOOP den sa s therhood is about ‘completely laying yourself on the line for my child without hesitation’
New mum Hayden
ack in September, brave firsttime mum Hayden Panettiere revealed she’d managed to conquer postnatal depression. ‘It’s something that needs to be talked about. Women need to know that they’re not alone, and that it does heal,’ she said. But sadly the 26-year-old Heroes actress has been affected by the condition again and is reportedly unable to cope at the moment without full-time care. ‘Hayden Panettiere is voluntarily seeking professional help at a treatment centre as she is currently battling postpartum depression,’ says her rep. The Nashville star, who gave birth to her daughter Kaya in late 2014, appeared to have been working through her problems
– heading back to work on set and posting positive photographs and heartfelt thoughts on Instagram. ‘Feeling like I’m finally coming back into my own body,’ she wrote on October 10. But according to an insider, it’s been a slow journey to feeling like herself again. The insider added that Hayden ‘had been suffering for a long time and just wants to get better for her family.’ Though the filming of Nashville will reportedly continue without her, Hayden has an amazing support system in her fiancé, Wladimir Klitschko, who has openly gushed about the mother of his child. ‘I’m so happy to have Hayden in my life,’ he says. ‘She’s the best mum I could even imagine. She’s a true, amazing mum.’

It’s been six months since Kate Moss and her husband of four years, rocker Jamie Hince, were last seen together. But the 41-year-old British model isn’t pining over their split – she’s enjoying a new romance with blood-drinking aristocrat Count Nikolai von Bismarck. ‘A lot of people know Kate has been seeing Nikolai, but she’s never been this open,’ an insider reveals. ‘Their relationship is pretty intense and he has been virtually living at her London home, but has been staying in the basement quite a lot… although he hasn’t moved in permanently, he seems pretty comfortable there.’ A budding photographer, 28-year-

‘Somebody is early to the party,’ Chrissy captioned her ﬁrst oﬃcial bump shot
‘IT’S NOT TWINS!’
Since announcing her baby news earlier this month, Chrissy Teigen has been lambasted with predictions that she and hubby John Legend are expecting twins thanks to her blossoming bump. ‘Yup it’s deﬁnitely twins, the bigger the bump the bigger the surprise,’ one fan tweeted, while
another wrote, ‘Damn you got big fast! Not twins? Probably triplets!’ And Chrissy’s had just about enough. The 29-year-old model hit back after years of trying to fall pregnant, urging fans to ‘Please stop!’ ‘I did IVF. One at a time. It isn’t twins. I can see the damn thing. Get out of my uterus!’

IT’S ALL OVER
Khloé & Lam
THE DIV B
obbing along to Beyoncé and chatting to her besties, a lean, statuesque Khloé Kardashian oozed confidence as she posed for a magazine shoot in the LA sunshine last week. But moments later, the call came that would instantly change everything. Lamar Odom – the man she loved more than all others – had been found unresponsive in a Nevada hotel, his life hanging in the balance. With no time to waste, the usually unflappable reality star dropped everything and jumped on the first flight to be by her estranged husband’s side. After a nail-biting 72 hours – in which the fallen sports star remained in a coma and was only breathing through a ventilator after reportedly ingesting a nearly lethal cocktail of drugs – Khloé whispered the words she’d been fighting herself to forget, ‘I love you.’ Seconds later, her doubts that she and Lamar should be together as husband and wife were banished as he opened his eyes and said, ‘Hey, baby.’ Despite suffering multiple strokes and seeing his major organs fail, the following days saw Lamar slowly edge towards health, with news at the time of press that he was being airlifted to an LA hospital on Monday ‘[Khloé] has no intention of leaving Lamar’s beside,’ says a friend – and will be there for him just like she was during their marriage
Khloé says she wished ‘he had tried harder’ to make their marriage work. Perhaps this is the second chance they needed 16 WWW.OKMAGAZINE.COM.AU
FOLLOWING A MIRACULOUS RECOVERY, THE COUPLE HAVE A SHOT AT GIVING THEIR MARRIAGE A SECOND CHANCE
VORCE IS OFF! night (US time) to continue his recovery. ‘He’s getting better little by little,’ a hospital insider reveals, along with news that the basketball star had a CT scan come back clean and has passed a swallowing test. ‘He’s slowly saying more words,’ says a friend, including telling Khloé, ‘Good morning.’ No doubt speeding up his recovery has been the support from Khloé, who hospital moles say ‘won’t leave his side,’ and accompanies him to every hospital test. ‘She strokes his hand and kisses his cheek. It’s very sad and sweet,’ a family friend says, while another adds, ‘She wants to be there so that whenever he opens his eyes, he sees her.’ Despite the 35-year-old’s long list of transgressions – including this latest harrowing and embarrassing ordeal where
he was found unconscious in the Love Ranch South brothel near Las Vegas – and the heartache he’s caused her, Khloé was unable to hide that she is still desperately in love with Lamar. ‘I love Lamar to death,’ she admitted in August. ‘He is the love of my life. We had a fantastic marriage.’ ‘I will never ever not love Lamar,’ the reality star continues. ‘He was my husband, and I still wish he was, and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.’ And now it appears that Lamar’s brush with death has changed Khloé’s mind about permanently ending their relationship. ‘The man she loves with every fibre of her soul is fighting for his life. Yes, of course she’s thought about calling the divorce off,’ an insider confirms. In fact, it turns out the pair are still technically married because a judge is yet to sign off on their divorce papers, thanks to a backlog in the LA court system. That same delay has also resulted in Khloé being left in charge of making medical decisions on Lamar’s behalf. Khloé calling a halt to the divorce would certainly be welcomed by Lamar, who as recently as three weeks ago still ‘harboured a hope’ that they ‘could at some point get back together,’ according to his college coach, Jim Harrick. Understandably given the drama that had plagued their relationship, Khloé tried hard to fight her feelings, enjoying a short-lived fling with rapper French Montana and until Lamar’s collapse, dating Houston Rockets basketball player James Harden. Yet in a scene from the latest season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Khloé was shown taking secretive calls from her troubled ex, much to sister Kim’s dismay. ‘I don’t know why Khloé and Lamar are talking, but he hurt her so badly,’ said Kim. ‘As a big sister, I’m just really protective.’ While Kim and the rest of the klan had been hesitant about Khloé’s recent

THE KLAN’S SUPPORT
As well as rushing to his side, the Kardashian klan have ﬂooded social media with messages of support for Lamar, giving Khloé their blessing to pursue her true love. ‘The stability she and her family bring me is why I’m at peace,’ Lamar has said.

REALITY interactions with Lamar, they wasted no time in rallying to his side during his crisis last week – even hiring a private jet to rush back to Las Vegas for a second time just hours after learning that Lamar had woken up. Now, insiders say Khloé and the klan plan to continue supporting the basketballer by getting him the professional help he so desperately needs. ‘Khloé is making the preparations to bring Lamar back to LA to further his recovery,’ says a family friend. ‘Doctors have told her Lamar’s going to need an extensive amount of rehabilitation and she’s preparing for that by turning her home into a rehabilitation centre,’ adds another. And from there, the family are determined to support Lamar back to health. ‘[They are] also hiring someone to be with him 24/7 to make sure he doesn’t slip back and do drugs again,’ a family mole reports. But the decision to commit to Lamar – and his long recovery – is no doubt tinged with regret. According to a pal, Khloé ‘had cut off contact with Lamar in the summer and she has been worried about Lamar for a very long time.’ And after a very public run-in
between the pair outside a SoulCycle studio in LA in August, Lamar received a lot of bad press, which he angrily denied. ‘I am not, not, not the person that they’re trying to make me out to be,’ he said. ‘To everybody I know that supports me I’m sorry but the dog has to fight back. That’s it. Y’all won. Y’all beat me down, y’all degraded me. You said I would do everything in the world… Nobody got followed, nobody got hassled, nobody got harassed, nobody got grabbed on, none of that. Didn’t happen.’ Other insiders claim Khloé now blames herself – as well as her public relationships with French and James – for Lamar’s latest downward spiral. ‘She wonders if there was anything more she should have done,’ says a pal. ‘Kim has told her that this isn’t her fault,’ but Khloé is ‘facing some guilt issues with this.’ But Lamar’s near-death experience has likely been the wake-up call Khloé needs to let James go and put her beloved LamLam first again. After all, Khloé’s the girl who still has her ‘LO’ tattoo etched into her hand – and she’s the girl who believes in happily ever after. ‘I am not a girl that’s like, “F--- love.” I’m all for the love story,’ she says.
KHLOÉ IS FACING SOME GUILT ISSUES WITH THIS
WHAT ABOUT JAMES?
verything is ﬂowing. Everything is what I imagined it would be,’ Khloé’s new love James Harden gushed, just days before Lamar’s shocking hospitalisation. Now, the 26-year-old has taken a step back from his blossoming romance with Khloé, as she remains by Lamar’s bedside. ‘Lamar essentially has zero consistent family other than the Kardashians, and James understands that,’ a friend explains. ‘The last thing he would want to do would be to add more stress to her plate. He supports her of course, but understands she needs space.’ However, will James’s absence lead Khloé back into the arms of her troubled ex?
Whirlwind wedding More like a hurricane! A month after locking eyes during a bash for Lamar’s Lakers teammate, Ron Artest, in August 2009 – and ﬁve days after getting engaged – the pair tied the knot on September 27, 2009, at a family friend’s Beverly Hills mansion in front of arches of white roses and 250 guests. ‘It was quick,’ Lamar admitted. ‘I didn’t want to wait.’

as a UNHCR Special Envoy with special focus on major refugee crises, also means that quality time together is hard to come by. In the past 12 months, Brad has been filming The Big Short in New Orleans and New York, as well as War Machine in London and Abu Dhabi. He also attended pal Guy Ritchie’s July wedding in the UK alone. Meanwhile, Ange has been engrossed in post-production duties on By the Sea and taken humanitarian trips to some of the world’s most contentious regions – including Myanmar, Iraq and Lebanon. In fact, the most recent extended time together for the couple was spent working on the emotionally intense By the Sea. ‘We called this film “the crazy one,”’ Ange admits. ‘We even called it “the worst idea”. As artists we wanted something that took us outside our comfort zone. It’s not the safest idea, but life is short.’ Brad has also openly admitted that life with Angelina is a wild ride. ‘The “I dos” change things,’ the 51-year-old actor told British GQ magazine in an interview. ‘I wouldn’t say marriage is just a title. There’s more to it than that.’ Brad has also confessed that filming By the Sea was a tough call. ‘It was absolutely challenging,’ he admits. ‘One of the most challenging things I’ve taken on.’ As parents to six children, here’s hoping Brangelina can work through their issues…
MAINTAINING A MARRIAGE IS HARD WORK
ngelina has talked openly about going through early menopause after having her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed in March this year. ‘It really connected me to other women,’ the actress reveals of the ‘brutal’ surgical procedures. ‘The hormone changes [were] interesting.’ However, Ange has no regrets, as the surgery has removed her risk of succumbing to ovarian cancer, which claimed the life of her beloved mother Marcheline Bertrand, aged 56, in 2007, as well as her grandmother Lois. ‘I feel grounded as a woman,’ says Ange. ‘Both of the women in my family, my mother and grandmother, started dying in their forties. I’m 40. I can’t wait to hit 50 and know I made it.’
Why we home-school ourkids Brad and Ange are determined to keep their children connected to their international roots, with three of the couple’s kids having been adopted. Ange reveals that Maddox, 14, Pax, 11, Zahara, 10, Shiloh, nine, and seven-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox are home-schooled by teachers who speak diﬀerent languages and who come from diﬀerent backgrounds and religions. ‘We travel often to Asia, Africa, Europe, where they were born,’ explains Ange. ‘The boys know they’re from Southeast Asia… but I want them to be just as interested in the history of their sister’s country and mummy’s country, so we don’t start dividing.’

hey may be the world’s most enviably glamorous couple, but whispers about Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s rocky relationship have refused to quieten since they tied the knot last year. And now, in a shock new interview with US Vogue magazine, Ange herself has admitted that her marriage to Brad is far from a fairytale. ‘Brad and I have our issues,’ the 40-year-old actress confesses. Tellingly, their latest movie By the Sea, which Ange also wrote and directed, focuses on a couple whose marriage is in crisis, and while Ange insists the film is ‘not autobiographical,’ it was certainly an odd choice for the couple to work on the intense project as part of their Maltese honeymoon in 2014. Her latest remarks are also not the first time that one of the Hollywood power couple’s words – or behaviour – have hinted at marital strain. ‘We have more moments where I say, “I’m going to be a better wife. I’m going to learn how to cook,”’ Ange told American morning show Today in November 2014. ‘Then Brad says, “Oh honey, know what you’re good at, and know what you’re not.”’ Just days later, the pair were snapped having a very heated argument on a Sydney hotel balcony, and then in April this year there were reports that jealousy was causing some strain at home. ‘[Ange is] very territorial and jealous when it comes to Brad and other women,’ dished a pal at the time. The fact that Brad is currently producing The Lost City of Z starring Brit beauty Sienna Miller has only inflamed Ange’s fears further. ‘Sienna really gets under her skin,’ a close friend reveals. ‘She’s hearing Brad bringing up Sienna’s name almost every day since the film went into production in August. Brad told her to let him do his job as a producer, and Ange yelled that she didn’t want him anywhere near Sienna. They barely talked to each other for the next day.’ Given that Brad and Ange controversially got together after meeting on the set of their 2005 flick Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and Sienna’s form when it comes to on-set flings with her co-stars – including Jude Law and Daniel Craig – it’s no wonder the project is causing conflict! Adding pressure to the couple’s marriage is their sizeable brood and work commitments. ‘Maintaining a marriage and raising kids is hard work,’ Ange admits. The couple’s conflicting work schedules, as well as Ange’s extensive travel in her role

Despite admitting on Instagram that she’s ‘fallin’ hard’ for LA, Demi, 22, has no plans to become as skinny as some of her Hollywood counterparts. ‘Last day in America so I went all out… Like every other day I’ve been here,’ she posted on an Insty snap of a greasy fry up in August. ‘You can get into a mind-frame where you revolve your life around food and I don’t think it should be like that,’ she tells OK!, adding that she does yoga to stay toned. ‘I go at least four times a week.’ One person delighted by her body confidence is boyfriend of just over a year, Alec, 23.

Determined to keep their marriage quiet, the pair avoided hitting the red carpet together, with Chris even hanging up on reporters, admitting he was ‘uncomfortable’ discussing his relationship. So how did Chris suddenly turn into the PDA king? Friends admit the star has ‘moved on quickly’ ever since he first began dating 31-year-old Annabelle in July. ‘He visited her while she was filming in Vancouver and really likes her,’ adds a pal, who says the pair are ‘very clearly a couple.’ Worse for Jen, it has sparked suspicions that her time with Chris may have just been a rebound romance. Beneath her carefree exterior Jen admits she’s a relationship girl, and while her undercover romance with Chris has always raised eyebrows, pals are adamant she thought they were ‘the real deal’. Not that Jen’s letting it show! The actress has been busy hanging out with her new bestie Amy Schumer and fellow comedian Aziz Ansari. ‘She’s the coolest chick you’ll ever meet,’ says Amy, 34.

ne of the most private men in pop, Coldplay rocker Chris Martin has always shied away from discussing his love-life. So it’s easy to see why Parisian fans couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw Chris, 38, dancing in the street with his new ladylove Annabelle Wallis on October 17. Far from hiding away in a penthouse hotel suite or VIP club, the rocker even wrapped his arms around the British Peaky Blinders actress and drew her close for a very passionate kiss! ‘Never seen him look this happy before,’ one onlooker commented, while another added, ‘It’s the first time I saw him like this.’ Needless to say, the sight of Chris literally tangoing through the streets of Paris will be a bitter blow for both his recent ex Jennifer Lawrence, and Gwyneth, his wife of 10 years. Chris scrupulously avoided being snapped with 25-year-old JLaw throughout their top secret one-year romance. And it was a similar story with Gwyneth, 43, who’s mum to his two

aying ‘I do’ just seven months after they first stepped out together, it’s been a crazy ride for Hollywood sweethearts Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden. But after months of PDAs, cute dates and heartwarming declarations of love, their newlywed glow has faded in recent weeks, suggesting the honeymoon may be over just nine months after their whirlwind January wedding. ‘They started dating and got married while they were on that high couples get when everything’s perfect at the start,’ a family pal confides. ‘But the honeymoon period appears to be over.’ Tellingly, the couple’s public gushing – like Benji’s sweet August birthday message to his ‘best friend’ Cam, 43 – has stopped.

The struggle to conceive is a bitter blow for the actress, who had cleared her schedule of all upcoming film projects in the hope of starting a family. ‘Cam never thought it’d be so hard to get pregnant,’ a friend sadly confirms. 26 WWW.OKMAGAZINE.COM.AU

BAD PRESS, PREOCCUPIED STARS AND BORED VIEWERS – THE FUTURE OF KEEPING UP W WITH THE KARDASHIANS LOOKS GRIM
ack in 2011, Kris Jenner seemed certain that we’d be keeping up with the Kardashians for years to come. ‘I’m looking forward to Season 26 – Kylie Gets Married. How’s that?’ she predicted. But now, with recent tragedies, rehab B stin nts, sliding ratings and key members fleeeing the Kardashian juggernaut, the sho ow seems to be grinding to a halt. For starters, the cast is dwindling. F Caitlyn Jenner, 65, has found solo success witth her show I Am Cait, and reclusive Rob w Kardashian, 28, is still privately battling hiss issues with drugs and depression. But now, two of the show’s biggest players B Khloé, 31, and Kourtney, 36 – are so –K miliated by reports surrounding Lamar hum dom’s hospitalisation, they are desperate to Od rettreat from KUWTK altogether. As well as claims the klan ‘walked into the hospital with cam ameras rolling’, the family has been accused of ‘s ‘shamelessly exploiting others – for enttertainment.’ Khloé, who was at the time of pre p ress holding a bedside vigil for Lamar,, was also stu tung by journalist Piers Morgan su uggesting ‘tho t ose sucked into [the Kardashianss’] crazy wo w orld need to be very, very careful’.

KENDALL & KYLIE HAVE MOVED ON While Kendall says, ‘Modelling is my number one priority,’ Kylie also seems to have outgrown her family’s show, and is said to be pushing for a series of her own. 28 WWW.OKMAGAZINE.COM.AU
LTHESHOW! British TV personality Piers Morgan pointed the ﬁnger at the Kardashians for Lamar’s problems. ‘Lamar, unlike the family he married into, was too sensitive, too vulnerable,’ he wrote. Mason, five, Penelope, three, and Reign, 10 months, to focus on the family business, Kourt has even admitted she is on ‘the verge of a mental breakdown.’ ‘All she really cares about right now is raising her kids,’ adds a family insider. Aside from big exits, there’s the fact that the family appears to be running out of ideas. Kris, 59, once prided herself on the show being real: ‘Everybody thinks that they could create a bunch of drama in their lives, but it’s something that I felt I didn’t even have to think about. It would be natural.’ But with Kim’s on-screen pregnancy dramas seen before, and Kris’s clashes with her younger daughters all old hat, there’s little to appeal to fans. Another big problem is Kim. Undoubtedly the show’s biggest star, the 35-year-old says she’s rethinking her career now she’s about to be a mum-of-two. ‘You become more selective and work on projects that are so meaningful because you want every other waking moment spent with your family,’ she says. And pregnant Kim doesn’t exactly feel like turning it on for the cameras. ‘Pregnancy is the worst experience of my life!’ she says. Kim’s little sisters Kendall and Kylie are understandably ready to move on too. ‘Kendall feels the show is beneath her now,’ says an insider of the 19-year-old, who has managed to build a lucrative modelling career. Younger sis Kylie is also branching out. ‘Kylie is pretty much the It girl right now and can call her own shots,’ says a pal, who reveals the 18-year-old’s rapper boyfriend Tyga is actively encouraging her to break away from the klan. ‘He’s convinced her she’s old enough to make her own decisions.’ It looks like this time, Kris won’t be able to rally the troops and paper over the cracks…
SCOTT IN REHAB
inally exhausted after traipsing from one debauched party to the next, Scott Disick checked into a Malibu drug rehabilitation centre last week. And while Kourt is yet to comment on the matter, Kardash BFF Jonathan Cheban says Scott could be welcomed back into the fold. ‘I’m sure they can work it out,’ he says. ‘There’s three kids, he lives not far from her. Once he gets this out of his system I’m hoping it will be somewhat back to normal.’ The 32-year-old was spotted on the grounds of Cliﬀside Rehabilitation Clinic with a sober coach this week, as his estranged family rally around Lamar. ‘He wants to make it stick this time because he has come close to losing everything,’ a family insider explains, adding that it’s likely Scott doesn’t know about Lamar’s hospitalisation: ‘They don’t want it to interfere with [Scott’s] progress.’
Ex-fling Makayla tells
‘SCOTT’S A LONELY, IMMATURE BOY’ Model Makayla Yarbrough, who had a month-long hook-up with the troubled reality star, has described the ‘disgusting’ living conditions at Scott’s Beverly Hills pad, and says the ‘Lord’ is ‘a young boy, not mature.’ The 21-yearold reveals Scott’s partying habits are ‘alarming’ and he’d often go days without eating or sleeping. ‘He has random girls, not even attractive girls over, they’re dirty and messy,’ Makayla shares. ‘I don’t think he’s happy; I think he pretends. I deﬁnitely think he’s lonely.’

t seems like a medieval concept, but some of our biggest stars are going to extreme lengths to score a waist of teeny, tiny proportions. Snapping selfies of a shrinking midriff is the new norm for young stars like Lily-Rose Depp and Emily Ratajkowski, while Kylie Jenner is telling fans she’s addicted to her waist-training device: ‘I’m officially obsessed after seeing how bomb my sisters look.’ However Dr Paul Nassif says the trend comes with major
health risks. ‘You can cause a problem with your lungs and your intestines because you’re taking your rib cage and you’re just squishing it down.’ Not bothered by doctors’ warnings, model Aleira Avendano made headlines earlier this year for achieving a 20-inch (51cm) waist, after wearing her corset 23 hours a day, every day for six years.

Bachelor THE A-LIST HUNK EXPLAINS WHY HE’S STILL SEARCHING FOR THE PERFECT WOMAN
ADDITIONAL TEXT BY AMBER BRAMBLE PHOTOGRAPHS BY TRUNKARCHIVE.COM/SNAPPER MEDIA, REX SHUTTERSTOCK, SNAPPER MEDIA
he last time many of us saw Bradley Cooper on the big screen, he bulked up to play Navy SEAL Chris Kyle in American Sniper. But following a critically acclaimed stint on Broadway in The Elephant Man, a recurring role in the new TV adaptation of his 2011 hit movie Limitless, and preparations for his new movie Burnt, the handsome 40-year-old star is cutting a slightly slimmer build. ‘It was a tricky thing,’ Bradley explains of shedding the first 9kg, plus an additional 8kg during the filming of Burnt. ‘It was interesting for continuity’s sake.’ Nominated for Academy Awards three years in a row, there’s already buzz Brad could finally pick up that gold statuette with his latest venture. In Burnt, the star trained with pros like Marcus Wareing and Gordon Ramsay to play a troubled chef struggling to rebuild his life. ‘He’d watch me dress a plate and copy it almost identically,’ Marcus says. ‘He’s very good.’ Meanwhile, Bradley’s Burnt co-star Sienna Miller gushes, ‘He is loyal and kind and has no concept of his own brilliance.’ Brilliant he may be, but Bradley has so far eschewed settling down and starting a family – despite a brief marriage to Jennifer Esposito in 2006, which ended just months later. Since then, he’s taken the crown from George Clooney as Hollywood’s most eligible 38 WWW.OKMAGAZINE.COM.AU
bachelor by dating a slew of A-list beauties, including Renée Zellweger, Zoe Saldana and Suki Waterhouse, and candidly reveals, ‘I love the company of a great woman.’ Indeed, after splitting with Suki in March this year, Brad was quick to move on with Russian model Irina Shayk, 29. The pair certainly seem a good match – Bradley’s relationship modus operandi being ‘to treat people the way you want to be treated,’ and Irina confessing that her ideal man ‘is faithful, honest and a gentleman who knows how to treat women’.
HIS DELICIOUS NEW ROLE
‘Being around food is very soothing to me… It reminds me of my childhood,’ says Bradley, who admits he was looking forward to playing a chef in Burnt. ‘I was able to spend a month living and breathing it.’
I love the company of a great woman
INTERVIEW And while things seem serious, the title of Tinseltown’s number one bachelor may be hard to give up. Even so, Brad insists his serial-dater tag is undeserved. ‘If you’re a single man and you happen to be in this business, you’re deemed a player,’ he says. ‘I don’t see myself as a ladies’ man but I love women.’ Here, he reveals his hidden talents in the kitchen and talks about the leading ladies in his life and his hopes for the future… Can you describe your ideal woman? I look for a girl that is fun, a free spirit. I’m a romantic, so she would need to put up with me being googly-eyed. I can be soppy. So there’s no need to play it cool then? When I’m into a woman, I literally can’t stop staring [at her]. I’m like a little kid. I become completely entranced. So you’re a big fan of love? I consider myself to be romantic… In a relationship you want to treat people the way you want to be treated. Do you ever think about having kids? Of course. I really hope I have that experience in my life. You go through stages in your life, and fatherhood seems like a natural stage. I saw how much joy fatherhood gave my own dad. So I hope it’s part of my journey. You must miss him a lot [Brad’s father Charles passed away in 2011]… I owe everything to my father. My father was an intellectual who adored the arts and passed that passion on to me. It’s such a shame that he isn’t here to share a lot of the things that are going on in my life now.
‘JEN AND While the sparks ﬂy between Brad and Sienna in Burnt, the pair also hit it oﬀ when the cameras stopped rolling. In fact, Sienna, 33, calls Bradley one of her ‘best friends – we laugh a lot’.

You play a chef in your new movie Burnt. Was the role a big departure for you? I worked for most of my life as a cook. When I was 15, I was a busboy at a Greek restaurant and then I worked as a prep cook through college. My mother’s side is Italian, so I grew up cooking all the time with my grandmother. Thank God the role was a chef, because I didn’t have much time to prep. There’s no stunt double. Everything in there I’m cooking. Sounds like you had it nailed! I actually learned how much I can’t cook by doing this film. You sit through one session with [ famed chef] Clare Smyth, and you realise this is a level of execution that’s world
I really hope fatherhood is part of my journey class. To get three Michelin stars is literally almost impossible. The level of perfection, discipline and sacrifice is incredible. You also hung out with other famous chefs. Did they inﬂuence your character? I created a guy I see as a mixture of the three guys I studied: Marcus Wareing, Gordon Ramsay and Marco Pierre White.

SIENNA INSPIRE ME’ American Hustle and Serena. ‘I forced him to come onto [Serena],’ the 25-year-old actress reveals. ‘I mean, any role is going to make me think of Bradley because in my opinion, he’s the best, and I love working with him.’ Jen’s even called Brad her ‘work husband’ but she’s quick to add there’s one big diﬀerence – there’s ‘no sex!’
he does, physical things, are things I stole from those guys. It wasn’t conscious, but going back and watching the movie, I see, ‘Oh yeah, that’s him… That’s him… [And] that’s him.’ What kind of things do you cook when you’re at home? Different things. It depends. I’m one of those guys that [uses] whatever’s in the refrigerator. I just started a little garden, which is like heaven. I’m just picking vegetables, you know – real old man stuff. [Laughs] Sienna Miller calls you one of her best friends. What was it like reuniting for Burnt after American Sniper? Sienna Miller reminds me of Julie Christie… She throws herself into it completely, zero vanity, utterly vulnerable at a moment’s notice. She lives her life with her heart on her sleeve. You’re also teaming up with Jennifer Lawrence for the fourth time in Joy… I’ve sort of hit the jackpot with being able to work with Jennifer Lawrence. She is a wonderful, wonderful actress. Probably her biggest asset is her level of relaxation when she acts. It’s a very thrilling thing to be involved with as the partner in the scene. It takes you into the scene. Is it true you ate 6000 calories a day to gain 18kg for American Sniper? It was a real shock to my body. If it’s pizza and cake, that’s one thing. Putting 6000 calories a day in your body gets old quick. But you’re a lot less bulkier in Burnt. Was losing weight a conscious decision? I couldn’t be that [American Sniper] size, because I would just look like a polar bear in the kitchen. What would people be surprised to learn about you? ’m so boring. I have never been that cool guy ho sleeps in. Even as an adult it’s cool to go o bed late and get up late. I just get up so oddamned early, and that annoys me. Why an’t I lie in like other people? ow early is early? arly, man. It’s not right. I don’t even want o say how early. nd are you in bed before 9pm? eah, I’m pretty much tucked up by then. hat are you looking forward to next? very day brings up something else. You ever know what is going to happen next. ’m a very blessed person. I’m just grateful o be where I am, and alive.

he’s sold six million albums worldwide and is worth $36 million, but Ellie Goulding is a rare find in the pop world: a quiet achiever whose life is an open and happy book. Having been called ‘the least controversial pop star ever’, the 288-year-old insists she’s been through some daark times, but is finally happy in her own skin. ‘I went through a phase of being on tour an nd having a hard time,’ she says. ‘I was drrinking. It’s only when you come out of hat phase you realise you were in trouble.’ th Several years on, Ellie’s only too aware off what she risked. ‘Now that m not in trouble, it makes it I’m more m obvious how close I was to o losing it all. Luckily I never go ot to that point,’ she confirms. Something that may have heelped – finding love with ‘in ncredible’ boyfriend and feellow muso, Dougie Poynter. Ellie now plans to settle down, deescribing Dougie as her ‘one forever’ with dreams of ‘h having a church wedding… I love l the idea of that.’ OK! discovers how Ellie calmly conquered the pop world.

Ellie found comfort in writing, playing the guitar and being an ‘angsty’ teenager. ‘There was a point where I could have gone off the rails. I knew instinctively I wanted something else,’ she recalls, and by 2009 she’d dropped out of her drama degree at university and had a record deal.
RACE TO THE TOP
With her 2010 debut album Lights, Ellie made it to the UK number one position on the pop charts, number two in the US and went on to sell 1.5 million copies worldwide. But she cemented her place in the public eye after being invited to sing her cover of Sir Elton John’s Your Song at the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding reception in 2011. ‘I still can’t believe it actually happened,’ she says. ‘When I first found out that they wanted me to perform I thought it was a joke…’ Since then she’s released another album, Halcyon, and her third – which includes a collaboration with Diplo and Max Martin – is due out next month. ‘It’s summery… but it’s more an end of summer feeling. It’s kind of heartbreaking at times, but it’s also uplifting,’ she says. Ellie has other fans in high places, including Taylor Swift, who says, ‘She’s the coolest girl. I’ve been obsessed with her records.’

SPOTLIGHT Ellie. In her first year of fame, she suffered her first panic attack. ‘I thought, “Why do I deserve this?” I couldn’t believe in the good things happening to me,’ she remembers. When the anxiety got so bad she couldn’t leave her apartment or drive to the studio, Ellie started therapy and slowly recovered. Looking back, she says she didn’t feel comfortable about her body image. ‘I was never confident in my looks,’ she says. ‘I hated my chin, my nose, my eyebrows. I was told by people at my record company to watch videos of other girls… and look like them.’

Ellie was introduced to a new level of success when she replaced an injured Jessie J as Katy Perry’s opening act on her 2011 US tour. It’s also given her a new friendship group she calls her ‘squad’ which includes Taylor Swift, Lorde, Cara Delevingne and Rita Ora. ‘I love surrounding myself with these women who are incredibly strong and incredibly passionate about what they do,’ she says of her famous gal pals. As for the controversy that arose when she deleted an Instagram shot of herself alongside Tay Tay’s rumoured arch enemy, Katy, earlier this year, Ellie insists it was wiped because she thought she looked bad. ‘I’m great friends

SHE’S GOT FAME, FORTUNE AND A HOT BOYFRIEND – OH, AND SHE’S IN WITH THE HOLLYWOOD CROWD!
‘I count her as a proper friend. We text and speak on the phone pretty regularly,’ says Ellie. She also set Tay Tay up with Calvin Harris!
‘She makes big pop songs, but she’s such a down-to-earth, funny person,’ says Ellie. ‘She’s got a real grasp on everything; she’s clever.’
Ellie has Twitter-chats with the supermodel. In February, she tweeted, ‘I love@caradelevingne’s boobs!!! Wow!! They are my new best friend.’
with Katy, I’m great friends with Taylor,’ she insists, crediting both for inspiring her new-found composure. ‘Now, my confidence has risen so much on stage that a lot of people who once thought of me as “that Ellie Goulding from the [department store] John Lewis ad” are almost scared when they see me live – because I’m an entirely different person.’
She’s had relationships with British DJ Greg James (‘a really good person’), Sonny Moore aka Skrillex (‘the sweetest human being in the world’) and even admits to a few dates with One Direction’s Niall Horan. But for more than a year, Ellie’s been loved-up with British pop star Dougie Poynter ( formerly of McFly, now McBusted), who she crushed on as a teenager! ‘I fancied him, but I thought he was so out of my league,’ confesses Ellie, who Dougie, 27, calls ‘beautiful and talented’.
THE NEXT BIG THING
Ellie featured in Tay Tay’s all-star line-up for Bad Blood, looking fierce as Destucta X. In the future she’d like to act: ‘I’ve studied [acting], and it’s always been a big interest’. She also has another ambition: ‘I’d like to do a personal training diploma even though I won’t ever be a personal trainer,’ she says.
HIKING, LA STYLE
llie’s a huge ﬁtness fan: she started running at 18, has done marathons and is a spokesperson for Nike. But she hasn’t always felt conﬁdent about her looks. ‘There was a time when I ran too much and didn’t eat enough,’ she says. Now, Ellie’s all about body pride – ‘I will happily post pictures of my muscles on Instagram because I’m proud of being a strong girl’. She trains up to four times a week and likes to mix up her work-outs, incorporating punching, sprints, weights and intervals – as well as a 25 minute run. She also loves Bikram yoga, hiking, the Brazilian martial art capoeria, or training alongside boyfriend Dougie and his gym-obsessed band mates. ‘Doing something diﬀerent every day keeps things fresh and exciting,’ she explains.

Gwyneth Paltrow is as well known for her lifestyle blog as her acting career, while Rachel Zoe’s website goes hand in hand with her work as an A-list stylist. But a certain newcomer is providing stiﬀ competition: Reese Witherspoon launched a lifestyle and retail hub, Draper James, in May. ‘Gwyn is really annoyed that Reese swooped in with her website and eclipsed Goop entirely,’ says a source. Reese, meanwhile, is keeping that Southern charm ﬁrmly in place: ‘I have had so much fun working on it!’ she gushes.

Nathaniel: I didn’t want too much ‘It was one of those attention on my personal life at situations,’ he says, ‘where that time. I know a lot of fans like you’re like, “Man, is this to feel like a part of that. It just felt really happening?”’ like I wanted the focus on other things in my life and my career.

What was the highlight of the day? Fujan: Walking down the aisle to his song, Always Be Yours. It was a beautiful surprise, I hadn’t heard it before. I was crying walking down the whole way. Absolute waterworks! That song’s on your new album, Nathaniel. Did you write it for your big day? Nathaniel: Pretty much. I wrote Always Be Yours with two other guys, but for me, it was about getting married and opening up this new chapter of my life.

‘I DON’T BELIEVE IN FAD DIETS’ The Aussie stunner reveals the tricks to getting your ultimate bikini body
What Geraldine Georgeou (accredited practising dietitian and a director of Designer Diets, Sydney) says: ‘Rachael’s brekkie of wholegrain rye with avocado a and tomato is ﬁlling and provides a source of o good monounsaturated fats. Consuming a varie ety of “colourful” vegies at lunch will provide ﬂavonoids onoids and antioxidants, which have strong anti-ageing properties. To make it a more balanced lunch choice, Rachael could add a lean protein such as poached chicken breast or smoked salmon. Having an earlyy dinner with a great source of protein is perfect and helps avoid unnecessary snacking. Also, being prepared with a healthy dessert option such as Greek yoghurt is a fantastic way to ﬁnish a meal and will provide calcium and probiotics to aid digestion.’

LUNCCH ‘I usually ll lik like a bi big b bowl of salad with roasted pumpkin, pine nuts, sun-dried tomatoe matoes, olives and spinach, but I varyy the ingredients.’

s summer fast approaches, most of us will hastily embark on quick-fix diets and amp up the exercise in a bid to get ourselves ready to don the dreaded bikini – but model Rachael Finch doesn’t seem to have those concerns. The mum of Violet, two, has already been showing off her toned beach body, making us so green with envy that we’re reaching for that ice-cream tub. Dammit! Before we all start thinking our efforts are futile, Rachael insists that hard work does pay off. ‘I try to be active every day,’ she sayss. ‘There are yoga and Pilates classes I love taking, but usually I enjoy a morning swim, dance practice, running outside.’ She says the key to success is what she eats, with the 27-year-old revealing, ‘Everything is OK in moderation and listening to our body so we know what it needs from within is key. I don’t believe in fad diets.’ If you want to rock a bikini like Rachael does, take a look at her day on a plate…

PREGNANCY PRESSURE SAM’S NOW DEALING WITH EVERYONE WANTING HER TO START A FAMILY STAT!
t’s been four months since the romantic Bachelorette finale was filmed in New Zealand and there’s no question that Sam Frost is still head over heels in love. ‘I’ve found The One and we’re madly in love and I just want to share my life with him. I couldn’t imagine my world without him in it,’ Sam, 26, gushes to OK!. And while the brunette beauty is clearly embracing her love bubble, she is conscious of not letting the mounting pressure from her man and his family get to her, when it comes to moving in and starting a family. ‘He’s the one that wants it!’ exclaims Sam about settling down and having children. ‘I want to take things day by day, there’s no rush,’ she says, adding, ‘I’m still a baby.’ Construction manager Sasha Mielczarek, 30, is nowhere near as patient as Sam,

Big sister Kristine ‘I do want to be married (left) guessed her sibling’s and want to have kids chosen beau from the sooner rather than later very start. Sam says, ‘She – if you asked me when young niece, amilla, ll 11 picked it straightaway.

Sasha’s former ﬁancée, Canberra-based marketing manager Martina Males, has broken her silence about the man she was with for two years – and it isn’t great news for Sash. According to the blonde stunner, he went on the show for one reason only, and it wasn’t love. ‘I’m happy that Sasha’s dream of becoming famous has ﬁnally become a reality,’ she shares in a telling swipe that suggests the Bachelorette standout isn’t entirely genuine. Despite auditioning and making the ﬁnal stages for an appearance on Channel Nine’s Getaway, Sasha insists he has no desire for the limelight and says red carpets are deﬁnitely not his thing. ‘If I started doing beer bongs at these red carpet aﬀairs it might be frowned upon,’ he jokes. As for exes, it appears Sash has had enough of them, with Sam Frost’s ex-ﬁancé Blake Garvey clearly not on his list of favourite people. ‘I haven’t met him, but what I know of him, I don’t really like,’ he admits. ‘You don’t really need to take advantage of Martina (right) bears a strong resemblance a situation and exploit it when to her famous cousin, you are in the public eye.’ Laura Dundovic
RICHIE’S THE NEXT BACHELOR! Bachelorette Sam reveals she’s doing everything in her power to see her number three man become the next Bachelor. ‘I will pull every string that I possibly can to make sure that Richie is the next Bachelor,’ she tells OK!. She clearly thinks he is prime for the position. ‘He is such a humble, intelligent, beautiful, gorgeous man and he deserves to shine in
front of Australia,’ she adds. And not any girl will do for the 30-year-old Perth rope access technician – Sam says not even her girlfriends would make the cut! ‘I don’t know if any of my friends are good enough for Richie,’ she admits to OK!. ‘He deserves the absolute best and I really do mean that.’

TENSIONS R RISE WHEN SHANNAN C CALLS OUT HIS COUPLED-U UP CASTMATES
his week, TBL Families erupts in the show’s most explosive fight – ever. What’s especially shocking though is that the tension boils over between the trainers! ‘This is the biggest, most intense internal argument ever seen on the show,’ trainer Shannan Ponton says. ‘From day one, Michelle [Bridges] and [Commando] Steve’s
relationship has impacted on the game… You can’t tell me that Michelle and Steve don’t sit in their car to and from work and don’t talk tactics. Their relationship has created a loyalty between their teams and I’m over it.’ After this week’s fiery elimination, a frustrated Shannan lashes out at his fellow trainers. ‘Bullshit! I’m over the smoke and mirrors. You’ve got a partner, you would
never vote your partner out,’ he says. A shocked Michelle responds, ‘I’m at work.’ Shannan doesn’t accept Michelle’s argument that work and her personal life don’t cross over. ‘She claims her and Steve can keep it professional, but I see things differently,’ he says. ‘The professional thing to do would have been not to get [romantically] involved in the first place, but there you go.’

WHY I’M NOT DATING THE AUSSIE LADIES
How are you enjoying your time in Oz – could you see yourself living here? Australia has everything I love except for one thing – my mum. I can’t leave my mum. She’s too old to relocate – she won’t even move out of her old house! Have you met any nice Aussie ladies? I went to Ronan Keating’s Emeralds and Ivy Ballll the h other h ‘Move over, Matt,’ joked Jess, one half of duo Jess & Matt
week and there was a beautiful girl there and we started talking… [while talking] I started thinking to myself that I have to do a television show tomorrow morning and I went home. I must be changing because here I was going home and leaving a beautiful woman at a party! So you haven’t dated any Aussie ladies? I haven’t really had time. It’s all about the music for me. I speak to some artists and they say they only play every three years because they get a bigger crowd, but my band and I tour all the time. We never stop. Do you spend a lot of time on The X Factor set? I’m there four or ﬁve days a week, usually. I spend more time there than they tell me to. Guy [Sebastian] has a family, as does Dannii [Minogue], and James [Blunt] has a wife with a baby on the way. Me, I love hanging out with the contestants; I love jam mming with them. On ne of your contestants, Jimmy Davis, left ft the show unhappy about having no i p in put when it came to song choice – is thaat true? He e’s mistaken and I think he knows that too, because he said that he’d argue fo or hours with people about song ch hoice, but you would know that you do on’t argue with people if you don’t have any input. I have songs coming up that came entirely from me, so I know that I have input because I’m te erriﬁed of my own bad picks.

It’s not the hardest role in the world.’

The sexier scenes on American Horror Story: Hotel [the show’s title for the ﬁfth season] are as far from frisky as you can get, says Matt Bomer, 38, who plays The Countess’s lover Donovan. ‘There you are in a sock [covering his privates] and there’s a guy holding a boom mic eating a doughnut,’ he laughs. ‘It’s pretty surreal.’ Between scenes, to protect their modesty (Lady Gaga wore ‘diamond pasties and a Band-Aid on her hoo-ha,’ tells series creator Ryan Murphy), a plastic tarp would be thrown over them.
THE HOTEL’S CRAZY FOUNDATIONS
On the show, Hotel Cortez was built by murderer James March (played by Evan Peters) in 1930, but in real-life the hotel is far less daunting and sits at six storeys high on a lot at Fox Studios in LA. While there’s nothing very scary about the set – such as the portrait above the staircase of explorer-with-a-brutalrep Hernán Cortes, who is the namesake of the hotel – the price tag on some of the vintage items that decorate the place might give the less cautious the jitters, including the $20,000-a-piece chandeliers.

eyes peeled. ‘These are clues the audience can decipher,’ says creator Martin Gero. Not big on puzzles? Aussie actor Sullivan Stapleton, who plays FBI agent Kurt Weller, says his character is intriguing. ‘He’s not a cookie-cutter agent.’

After acting as defence counsel for a man assumed to be a Russian spy, James Donovan (Tom Hanks) is then put in charge of organising the hush-hush prisoner’s exchange for a US pilot held by the Soviets. Set during the Cold War, this chugs along without ever becoming too thrilling. Tom is perfectly cast in this tale as the man tasked with doing the undoable.
He may have kicked the drugs, boozing and womanising, but superstar chef Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) is still a jerk. Having, er, burnt his bridges in Paris and the US, Adam turns up in London and manages to talk some old colleagues into helping him start a restaurant. So far, so easy. But unless he can change his ways, he has no chance of achieving the third Michelin star he covets. Although it’s tasty enough as it proceeds towards its inevitable conclusion, Burnt could’ve done with more complex ﬂavours.

Relationships and emotions will rule this week so be ﬂexible with your expectations. Everyone is focused on their own journey, so don’t be surprised when others don’t live up to their promises. Leave all vital communication until after October 25 if you want a good result. This week’s mantra: Patience pays oﬀ.
Keep your eyes and ears open this week. Having been too trusting in the past, it will help to remember not everyone works with your level of integrity. By understanding this, you’ll be in a better place emotionally. Taking your life in a new direction will prove tempting – go for it! This week’s mantra: I keep a clear head.
Thanks to planetary inﬂuences, you’ll be keen to tick oﬀ some pertinent tasks this week. It’s time to act on an idea you’ve had on the back-burner – trust your instincts and you can do no wrong. Make good use of the time you have, and don’t allow yourself to be aﬀected by other people’s negativity. This week’s mantra: I’m ready for success.

Your living arrangements will need your attention this week. Look at what needs changing and take action. New connections are ready to be formed – just remember, the more open you are, the better. Be prepared to walk away from situations that no longer feel right. Trust your instincts. This week’s mantra: I will take action.
Many of you will be feeling irritated if things aren’t moving at the pace you would like. Look at how you’ve turned things around in the past and apply this to the challenges before you. If you haven’t been entirely upfront and honest, it could prove frustrating, but support from others will come. This week’s mantra: Honesty is the key.
The universe is pushing you to make some big changes this week, whether you like it or not. This especially applies to your relationships. Don’t let work irritations get to you; leave others to sort things out for themselves. If you get involved in their dramas, you’ll only end up wasting your precious time. This week’s mantra: I focus within.
APR 21 – MAY 21
MAY 22 – JUN 21
JUN 22 – JUL 23
If in the past you’ve let others have their way in order to keep the peace, it’s time to stand your ground. Rather than blaming those around you, focus on the role you played, and only then will you be able to move forward. Opportunities are about to come knocking, so be ﬁrm in what you want. This week’s mantra: I take a stand.
It’s time to present a diﬀerent side of yourself to the world. Remember, you are an individual – be proud of who you are and all you’ve achieved in your life so far. Now’s also a good time to recognise and deal with your fears. Once sorted, you won’t recognise the new, stronger you! This week’s mantra: Change is needed.
You need to ﬁnd an outlet for your frustrations. If everything feels like it’s getting too much, ask for help. There’s no need to always present a polished facade – drop your guard and allow others to see the real you, vulnerabilities and all. In doing so, you’ll create stronger, long-lasting relationships. This week’s mantra: I open myself to others.
JUL 24 – AUG 23
AUG 24 – SEP 23
SEP 24 – OCT 23
Mid-week will prove compelling as far as relationships go. Whatever you do, don’t become a rescuer. If someone has problems, support them from afar, rather than getting too involved. By doing this, you’ll have energy in the tank to deal with any rough patches you may encounter. This week’s mantra: Time to put myself ﬁrst.
With everything that’s been going on, it shouldn’t surprise you that you’re at an emotional crossroads right now. Watch your communication as you could ﬁnd yourself saying the wrong thing to the wrong person. Being diplomatic will get the desired outcomes – accept others for who they are. This week’s mantra: I think before I speak.
Try to keep a tight rein on your enthusiasm this week – running away with ideas won’t get the outcomes you want. Step back, think with a clear head and you’ll be surprised at what you can achieve. Likewise, be careful who you share your plans with – they may not have your best interests at heart. This week’s mantra: I stay on track.

Performing 50 shows a year, the singer says she manages to get back to LA weekly. ‘I will have some nights where I’ll come back to LA after the show and some when I’ll stay over in Las Vegas.’ This new mega mansion is lavish luxury fit for a p princess… of pop!

The only thing lacking in Justin Theroux Theroux’ss two two-month month th marriage to Jennifer Aniston is her love for his motorcycle. Justin says Jen has only ridden his bike ‘three times’ and the actress didn’t really like the experience. But fear not, Ellen DeGeneres has solved the ﬁrst hurdle in their matrimonial union during a TV chat with Justin. ‘Put her on the back of your motorcycle,’ the US TV host told the newlywed as she handed him a life-size Jennifer Aniston blow-up doll, complete with ‘Rachel’ hair.
