James McAvoy
Say goodbye to those luscious locks, folks.

Director Bryan Singer took to Instagram on Friday, May 8 to share a photo of the professor Xavier of the "X-Men" film franchise sporting the character's signature look, reported Ace Showbiz.

Reese Witherspoon Emma Watson Lena Dunham Angelina Jolie Lorde Patrick Stewart

We think we have a new favourite celebrity feminist. If it wasn't enough for Witherspoon to take on such an inspiring feminine role in her latest movie 'Wild'; a film based on the memoirs of Cheryl Strayed, a first time hiker who walked 1,100 miles along the Pacific Crest Trail in a journey of self-discovery; she is now encouraging other actresses and celebrities to want more from their public appearances. The star took to Instagram with a list of questions she hoped to hear as she appeared on the red carpet at the Oscars, including 'What's the biggest risk you've taken that you feel has paid off?' and 'What accomplishment are you most proud of?'.

 Unsurprisingly, the Ensemble Cast Award went to the actors from 'The Imitation Game'; a movie depicting the era-defining career of codebreaker Alan Turing during World War II and his subsequent arrest for being homosexual. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead role, with the likes of Allen Leech, Matthew Beard and Alex Lawther - the latter of whom plays Turing's younger self. Directed by the BAFTA nominated Morten Tyldum, the movie has already been nominated for five Golden Globes, and it definitely looks to be in line for an Academy Award.

After reminiscing long enough over the danger and excitement of his previous adventures, the sailor is ready to set out on another voyage across the open sea. Luckily for him (or not, as the case may be for most people) he is challenged by the Sultan to chase down a wicked magician, who has  callously snatched away his first-born daughter. Sinbad must travel great deserts and wild oceans, meeting numerous magical adversaries along the way in order to win back the Princess. He must face far greater horrors than he's ever seen before, and all while protecting royal blood.

The Journey To Le Mans Trailer


The 24 Hours of Le Mans remains the oldest and most intense contest in endurance racing. For 24 hours, racers battle their inner demons and other drivers in order to get a shot at racing history.

That team is 'Jota Sport', and they are about to take part in the race at Le Mans.
