Kate Beckinsale Sends Her Daughter Naked Pictures Of Ex Michael Sheen To Cheer Her Up


Kate Beckinsale Michael Sheen

Kate Beckinsale has a really strange way of cheering up her daughter – she sends her a naked photo of her ex-boyfriend (and her daughter’s father) Michael Sheen. Okay then (!)

Beckinsale and Sheen dated for eight years between 1995 and 2003, during which time they welcomed their daughter Lily Mo, now 17 years old, in 1999. Although they split, they have remained friends since.

The 42 year old actress made the startling revelation during an appearance earlier this week on Conan O’Brien’s chat show.

Alice Through The Looking Glass Review

Excellent

This much more light-hearted sequel reinvigorates the franchise after Disney's quirky but murky 2010 reboot of Lewis Carroll's classic, which sent the heroine into Underland (not Wonderland) for a dark adventure that spiralled into a Lord of the Rings-scale battle. Thankfully this time the odyssey remains personal, centred on lively characters rather than overwrought plotting. And Alice's time-travelling quest is both pointed and engaging.

After captaining her late father's ship on a global journey, Alice (Mia Wasikowska) returns to 1875 London to bad news: her mother (Lindsay Duncan) has made decisions that take her future out of her hands. As she struggles to respond, she is summoned back to Underland to help her friend Hatter (Johnny Depp), who is emotionally devastated by the fact that his entire family has been killed. So Alice decides to help by confronting Time (Sacha Baron Cohen) and stealing a device that will allow her to travel back to help the younger Hatter. But she also becomes entangled in the early life of the White and Red Queens (Helena Bonham Carter and Anne Hathaway), and the feud that grew between them as young sisters. Meanwhile, Time is terrified that Alice is unravelling the fabric of reality.

The emotional nature of Alice's mission adds a surprising layer of suspense to the entire film, while director James Bobin (The Muppets) adds a breezy comical tone to Tim Burton's stunningly visual designs. Some of the more wacky flourishes don't quite work (such as the "sea of time" imagery or Time's hand-powered vehicle), but the film more than makes up for these with wonderful character details. This lets the actors relax into their roles while cranking up the surreal touches. Wasikowska is great as the plucky heroine fighting for her right to control her own life, a strong point that's made without preaching.

Kate Beckinsale And Michael Sheen Recreate Daughter's Birth Shot


Kate Beckinsale Michael Sheen

Just adorable. Kate Beckinsale has enlisted her ex-partner and close friend Michael Sheen to recreate the 1999 birth photo of their daughter Lily Mo - despite said child now being 16 to 17-years-old. Sometimes even the biggest of stars can get a bit silly where their children are concerned.

Kate BeckinsaleKate Beckinsale hasn't changed much since 1999

The photo sees Lily cuddling up to her mother with her eyes closed in a perfect mirroring of her birth shot. Beckinsale posted the photo alongside the original on Twitter and Instagram today (May 18th 2016), captioning it: 'Always a baby to me #Lily'. However, she did allude to it being a joke by adding: 'See more tonight on 'The Late Late Show'' (a comedy show hosted by British presenter James Corden).

Alice Through The Looking Glass - Teaser Trailer


Alice once again returns to Wonderland and meets a lot of familiar faces. This time her biggest enemy is Time, quite literally. As the Blue Caterpillar reminds her, 'You've been gone too long, Alice there are matters that might benefit from your attention. Friends cannot be neglected.' Instead of falling down a rabbit hole, this time Alice gains entry to wonderland through a large mirror which takes her to a topsy-turvy universe which could only be associated with Wonderland. There appear to be a few differences between the book and the new film; whilst Lewis Carol's original version of the book was based six months after the original tale, the inclusion of Time might mean that Linda Woolverton's version make time travel much quicker in Wonderland. Again, Carol used many chess analogies in the book, at the moment its unknown how much this will play a part in the movie. The majority of the lead cast from Tim Burton's 2010 version of Alice in Wonderland including Johnny Depp as Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen and Anne Hathaway as the White Queen. Alice Through The Looking Glass was directed by James Bobbin who previously worked on the 2011 Muppets film and Muppets Most Wanted.

Sarah Silverman Talks About The Possibility Of Children In The Future


Sarah Silverman Michael Sheen

Comedian and actress Sarah Silverman says that she would like to have children, but that the idea of being a mother is hugely overwhelming to her.

“You know how some guys have a rubber neck about like hot girls' butts or whatever?” Silverman told E! Online in a short interview. “That's me with babies and toddlers and even like children and young teens. They fortify me. I love them.”

Silverman, 44, made the comments at the premiere of I Smile Back, a new independently-made drama movie in which she stars as a mom of two whose life and marriage deteriorate because of mental illness and addiction.

Far From The Madding Crowd Review


Excellent

This new take on the Thomas Hardy classic vividly captures the story's modern themes through complex performances from a sharp cast. Hardy's story is twisty and surprising, a romance that certainly doesn't take the usual route to a happy ending. But even as it travels to some very dark places, we never give up hope that things will turn out right in the end. And the nuanced acting and filmmaking make it a fascinating, involving journey.

The story opens in the 1870s Dorset countryside, where Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan) has gone to stay with her aunt. She can't help but notice the hunky farmer Gabriel Oak (Matthias Shoenaerts) next door, and he notices her too, proposing marriage. But she wants to live an independent life, so she turns him down. Some time later in another place they meet by chance, after she has inherited a farm that he helps save from a fire. She hires him to manage the farm, but he now has a love rival in the form of wealthy older neighbour William Boldwood (Michael Sheen). Then swashbuckling young soldier Francis Troy (Tom Sturridge) turns up, catching Bathsheba's eye. With three suitors to choose from, she still refuses to let a man define her. But she also knows that she can't hold out forever.

Yes, these are essentially the three types of man: good, safe and sexy. So Bathsheba's decision won't be easy. Or at least it shouldn't be. The problem here is that Schoenaerts has such a stunning, beefy on screen presence that the choice is a no-brainer (frankly, he's even more beautiful than the women in the film). This actually makes us yell at the screen as we watch Bathsheba give in to the swaggering Sturridge's far more outrageous flirtation. And the soulful Sheen's presence inspires a wave of sympathy. In other words, we get sucked straight into the melodrama, which plays out with Hardy's usual collections of coincidences, as fate seems to conspire to push people one way or another.
