The Irishman: Film Review

I really wanted to watch Martin Scorsese‘s gangster epic in a cinema because I feared I wouldn’t be able to watch the three-and-a-half-hour film at home without interruptions. I never managed to get to the cinema so had to do make do with a Netflix viewing – but I needn’t have worried. The Irishman is so gripping that I watched it non-stop from start to finish and didn’t feel the need to check my phone at all.

Big Pics: Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian & Anna Kendrick

Justin Bieber


Here is the moment when Justin got turned away from London’s Cirque Du Soir nightclub on his 19th birthday. You can see his lady friend Ella- Paige Roberts Clarke in the picture. He was only in the venue for a few minutes, looking forward to his circus-themed party, before he got turned away by security. It is thought this was because he tried to get under-aged friends in.

Anna Paquin


Finally! A shot of one her twins. Anna and her husband, Stephen Moyer, have been extremely protective over their children- we don’t know their names or what they looked like (until now). The True Blood star gave birth to the twins (thought to be a boy and girl) back in September last year.

Anna Kendrick 


I love Anna, she is such fun on Twitter. I love following her! She tweeted: “They dare me to get in but then think it’s WEIRD when I don’t want to get out #hypocrisy.”

Leona Lewis


Here is Leona getting smoochy with her man on an LA beach. Leona is back with her German dancer boyfriend Dennis after they split in October last year.

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West 


We’ve already seen the crazy front cover in which Kanye and Kim simulate sex (see pic of the week) but here are the risqué pictures inside. I cannot believe they agreed to these pictures! The shoot was for French magazine L’Officiel Hommes.



Big Pics: Ryan Gosling, Amanda Bynes, Justin Bieber & Russell Brand

Ryan Gosling 

Not going to lie, it kills me a little bit to see that Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes are still together. Yes, it’s lame I know but he is just so hot and it’s horrible knowing that he is taken (with such a gorgeous woman too!) The pair were spotted in New York over Thanksgiving. They haven’t been seen out together for quite some time due to conflicting work schedules. I had hoped that meant they were done but this proves they are definitely still an item. DAMN.

Justin Bieber 

What do you wear when meeting the Canadian prime minister? Dungarees of course! Justin has been slammed online for his poor outfit choice. Justin defended his clothes, writing, “The pic of me and the Prime Minister was taken in a room in the arena where i was performing at that day. I walked straight from my meet and greet to him, if you . . .expect me to have a change of clothes let a loan [sic] a suit at that specific time that’s crazy.”

Amanda Bynes

Amanda has been off the radar since her crazy antics over the past few months. But what a picture she chose to make a comeback to! The lips, the over-sized sunglasses and the fur coat- she looks so bad!  She posted the picture to Instagram to encourage people to follow her on the photo-sharing site.

Anna Paquin

Man, imagine having to carry around TWO children. They must weigh you down after a while! True Blood star Anna Paquin was spotted walking around Venice Beach with her three-month-old twins. She and husband Stephen Moyer have remained tight-lipped about the gender and names of their children, so we’ll have to keep guessing!

Russell Brand 

Who wants to see a picture of Russell in the bath?! Not me! EWWW. The comedian posted this picture to Twitter, swiftly followed by the pictures below which was captioned “Dontcha wish your girlfriend was a Sikh like me?” Oh Russell.

Celebs & their Kids Special Pics & News


1. Lily Allen’s dad has confirmed she is pregnant. He made the announcement while on TV show This Morning yesterday. This will be Lily’s second child after giving birth to daughter Ethel in December 2011.

2. Uma Thurman has given birth to a baby girl with partner, Arpad Busson. She already has two children from her marriage to Ethan Hawke. No other details have been released.

3. Stephen Moyer finally confirmed that he and his True Blood co-star wife Anna Paquin were expecting twins.


There have been a lot of cute pictures of celebrities and their children surfacing over the past few days so I’ve made a collection of my favourites.

1. Julia Roberts was playing with daughter Hazel on the beach in Hawaii. The duo are on a family break to Kaui. While Hazel and Julia picked seashells, her husband Danny Moder was looking after their two other children- Hazel’s twin Phinnaeus (both seven) and Henry, who is five.

2. These are my two favourite pictures of Katie Holmes and Suri Cruise over the last few days. In the top one, Suri is having a sulk because she wants a puppy but Katie says no. In the second, they just look so cute together especially in the matching pink! Suri looks happier and relaxed compared to when the divorce news first broke so I’m glad to see she’s weathered the storm pretty well.

3. The reason I love these pictures is that Sarah Michelle Gellar is clearly enjoying the whale more than her daughter, Charlotte! The pair had a day out at SeaWorld in San Diego, California. It’s nice to see Sarah in pap pictures because she’s very low-key and you hardly ever see any of her so it’s refreshing to look at pics from a quieter celeb! Gellar is expecting a second child with husband Freddie Prinze Jr.

4. How cute is Aoife Belle Foden?! She’s so cute! The Saturdays singer, Una Healy, posted pictures onto her Twitter to show off her fourth month old baby. In the picture below, you can also see her husband, rugby star Ben Foden having a staring match!

5. Now I think is such a cute picture because it shows how close Will Smith is with his daughter Willow. She decided to take a nap on him while on a flight and mother/wife Jada decided to show the world through Twitter. It just makes Will even more likeable!

Top News: Anna Paquin, Eva Longoria and Charlize Theron

Besides the obvious Tom and Katie divorce and Adele pregnancy stories, here are other interesting stories from the past few days.

1. True Blood stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer are expecting twins. The couple haven’t confirmed the news themselves but their co-star Sam Trammell spilt the beans.

He said to US Weekly,”I’m so excited for them. We sent them a special gift. It’s so interesting that True Blood has become, like, the ‘twins’ show.”

Definitely gave the game away there! A rep for Paquin declined to comment so I’m sure it’s true. Congrats! Moyer has two children from a previous relationship.

2. It has been confirmed that Eva Longoria has split with her boyfriend Eduardo Cruz. Eduardo, Penelope Cruz’s younger brother, started dating Eva in January 2011 after her marriage to Tony Parker ended in divorce. The pair had split once before earlier this year but got back together. It would seem that this is the end though as Cruz’s rep confirmed the news.

3. We finally have a pic of Charlize Theron’s hair! She’s been keeping her super short, brunette hair undercover for the past few weeks but she was finally caught without a hat! Luckily for Charlize, the hairdo is only for a role and she can go back to her gorgeous golden locks afterwards.

4. Saturdays singer Una Healy will be getting married to her rugby star fiance Ben Foden today in her hometown of Thurles in Ireland. The pair were spotted at a country church for the wedding rehearsal yesterday. The rest of The Saturdays will be there- Vanessa, Rochelle, Mollie and Frankie- plus the JLS boys, Zara Phillips and Una and Ben’s five-month-old daughter Aoife.


5. And to finish off…the cutest picture of the week! Here is actress Hilary Duff with her little boy Luca on his first holiday to Mexico. He looks adorable and she looks like such a good mum!


Today’s celeb news: Relationships and babies

Jason Segel has pretty much confirmed that he is dating actress Michelle Williams. The How I Met Your Mother star said during an interview with Extra; “”I think we would just very much like to be happy. That’s all I’m going to say about it.”

That implies confirmation, no? Michelle Williams is the star of My Week with Marilyn and she has a daughter Matilda from her previous relationship with the late Heath Ledger.


Carey Mulligan is thought to be tying the knot in a low-key ceremony this weekend. Her relationship to musician Marcus Mumford (of the band Mumford and Sons) has been quite a speedy one- they got engaged in August 2011 after dating just five months.


Gary Barlow announced that his wife is expecting a girl. The baby will be Gary’s fourth child. Gary also confirmed yesterday that he will be back on The X Factor judging panel this year.

– True Blood stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer are expecting their first child together. The pair met on the set of the TV show and married in 2010. Moyer has two children from a previous relationship.
