Katherine Heigl wants 2 more kids

Katherine Heigl would like to have two more children.

The 36-year-old actress already has daughters Naleigh, six, and two-year-old Adalaide with her husband Josh Kelley and she's keen to add a couple more to their brood, but she's determined to do it sooner rather than later because she's worried about her age.

Speaking in the March issue of Australia's InStyle magazine, she said: "I would love two more kids. Josh is sort of considering one more. But I'm getting older! I met a woman the other day who had twins at 49, and I went, 'How do you do it?' I'm tired now. At 49, I wouldn't have the energy."

However, the blonde beauty has admitted she doesn't want her children to follow in her footsteps and become actresses.

She explained: "My daughter just came home with a project from school; she was asked what she wants to do when she grows up. She said: 'I want to be a musician like daddy and act in movies like mummy.' I went, 'We're so screwed!' I'm happy to support it when they're adults but I don't want to schlep them around to auditions and do all the stuff my mum had to do with me."

Meanwhile, Katherine tied the knot with Josh in 2007 after dating him for two years and she believes their marriage gets better and better as the years go on.

She said: "It's better than it's ever been. The first year we struggled - you're adapting to marriage and suddenly the stakes are much higher. It's not like you can just break up ... Josh has become my best friend."

She added: "His level of support and loyalty are amazing. He is a kind person and he makes me better. I look at Josh and I think, knock on wood, 'We'll make it.' "

Patricia Arquette likes helping people

Patricia Arquette likes helping people "forget their troubles".

The 'CSI: Cyber' star loves the accessibility of television and enjoys working on syndicated shows, knowing people can see them wherever they are in the world and whatever their circumstances.

She said: "I really like the idea of network television, which is entertainment for the masses.

"My great grandparents were in vaudeville, which was like network TV. It was five cents per show. I felt that there was a real elitism towards television that I wanted to go against.

"I like the idea of reaching worldwide audiences, I like the idea of being in someone's apartment in Dubai, someone's shack in Mexico.

"I mean, I've done aid work all over the world and it's amazing how many people can watch television. Sometimes they're hungry but they get to watch television. I like to be a part of that momentary forgetting of troubles."

And the 46-year-old actress loves starring in smaller movies "for art's sake".

She said: "I've always loved doing small art movies really for art's sake and for the project."

Patricia added she doesn't understand why some actors let their "ego" get in the way of good work because it doesn't have a big enough budget.

She told Loaded magazine: "I've seen a lot of people not work because of their ego about what is proper for them to do with their celebrity status.

"After a while no-one hires them. Little movies don't hire them. No-one hires them."

Kim Kardashian West goes platinum blonde

Kim Kardashian West has dyed her hair platinum blonde.

The 34-year-old reality TV star, who recently had her chocolate locks chopped into a shorter do, took to her Instagram account today (03.05.15) to debut her new eye-catching tresses and to thank her beauty team for getting the bold colour "in one try."

She uploaded a 'selfie', which showed off her new look, online and captioned it: "So I went platinum! I have the best team! Thank you to @joycebonelli for being my inspiration and introducing me to @GregoryRussellHair who cut my hair & put this team together! Thank you @LorriGoddard_ who dyed my hair & got this color in one try! Not an easy task! (sic)."

The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' beauty later posted another photo of her bleached hair as she watched the Balmain show at Paris Fashion Week with her husband Kanye West, 37, mother Kris Jenner, 59, and half-sister Kendall Jenner, 18.

She captioned the shot: "Blonde at Balmain."

Meanwhile, Kim, who dyed her hair to caramel blonde last year before changing it back to brunette just weeks later, recently admitted she has the "hairiest forehead" ever and has to have her fuzzy hairline lazered to keep her baby flicks at bay.

She said: "I have the hairiest forehead you could ever imagine, and I would always break out and get all cracky on my forehead just from all the hair that I had.

"So in high school, I would wax it off because there was just so much hair, and then I would laser it off a little bit."

Harry Potter cast has annual cricket match

Matthew Lewis has revealed he and the 'Harry Potter' cast meet up for an annual cricket match.

The 25-year-old actor - who played bumbling Hogwarts student Neville Longbottom in the film franchise - says the actors reunite for a match every August between the fictional student houses Gryffindor and Slytherin to raise money for charity.

When asked if he still sees his castmates, Lewis said: "We try and play a bit of cricket in summer together, in August time, we do it for charity. It's Gryffindor versus Slytherin, I was on Gryffindor obviously, I think we're winning like 3-1 or 4-1, we usually win."

Lewis admits he and the rest of the cast, which included Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, developed very close friendships while making the movies based on J.K. Rowling's book series.

He and the other stars are always in touch, but Lewis admits it can be tough for them to meet up as much as they would like because of their work commitments.

During an interview on 'Lorraine', Lewis revealed: "I got the role at 10, we started filming when I was 11 and at the last premiere I was 21, so it was about 10 years of my life. I've been so fortunate being involved in a project like that. I was a huge fan of the books and then to work with the acting talent on those movies was a real privilege for me.

"It's tricky (meeting up) because everyone is around the world doing different things, but I saw Emma Watson just the other week and we were chatting about all the HeForShe stuff she's doing with the UN, which is incredible I'm so proud of her for doing it. So we were catching up."

Vince Vaughn immortalized in handprint ceremony

Vince Vaughn never imagined he'd be immortalized outside the TCL Chinese Theatre.

The 'Wedding Crashers' actor used to find looking at the celebrity hand and footprints encased in cement outside the world-famous Hollywood building "inspiring" and was thrilled to join their ranks at a ceremony yesterday (03.04.15).

He told 'Entertainment Tonight': "I remember being a young kid - I came out to LA when I was 18 -- walking down these streets and coming across the Chinese [Theatre] and really being impressed by it and looking at all the names and all the hands and footprints and it being inspiring."

"To be included now is a lot of fun."

The 44-year-old actor - who was joined at the ceremony by wife Kyla and their children Lochlyn, four, and Vernon, 19 months - is known for his work in comedy but he will star in the upcoming series of 'True Detective' and is excited about his role in the gritty drama.

He said: "It's a chance to do something different and we got great material for me to work with and I'm really having a great time doing it."

"It's a crime story that takes place [in Los Angeles]. The characters are complicated, the worlds that you enter are very interesting. It's a lot of fun."

Susan Sarandon splits from boyfriend

Susan Sarandon has split from her boyfriend.

The 68-year-old actress and entrepreneur Jonathan Bricklin, 37, have gone their separate ways after five years together because the 'Lovely Bones' star struggled to cope with having their lives filmed for Morgan Spurlock's AOL reality series 'Connected', which follows six people are their partners over six months.

A source said: "It caused a lot of strain in the relationship.

"It's documented for the show that Susan breaks up with him because she doesn't want to be involved with the show. She says, 'You're a cast member, I'm not.'"

However, the couple's relationship may not be over for good.

The source told the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column: "As of now, they're working on things."

Susan has previously admitted she and Jonathan are not an "ordinary couple" and insisted the age gap has never bothered her.

She said: "We don't live under the same roof. We're not an ordinary couple.

"It's the soul of a person that interests me. When you are in love, the question of age, sex, colour no longer hold any importance."

The 'Tammy' actress has also spoken of how she found it difficult to move on from Tim Robbins, whom she split from in 2009 after 23 years together.

She said: "[It was] exciting and simultaneously terrifying because there are certain comforts you take for granted in long-term relationships. Even though in my business I meet lots of people, you think of yourself differently when you're on the market than when you're not. So, yes, I'd be lying if I said it was an easy transition."

Judi Dench's worst audition

Judi Dench was told she didn't have the ''face'' for movies.

The 'Skyfall' actress is well known for her acting credits in a host of top films but has recalled a time where she was told she didn't have the right look to be a movie star.

She said: ''I went and met (the director) and I was at the Old Vic at the time and he asked me some questions and in those days, you weren't filmed and he said to me, 'Well it's been very nice meeting you but I'm sorry not this film and probably not any film as you have every single thing wrong with your face.'

''Well I got to do a few films after that so I'm very pleased he was wrong.''

Despite proving the director wrong, the 80-year-old actress has insisted she will not reveal the name of the man who turned her down.

Speaking backstage at The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, she said: ''I can't because I've never, in all of time, since it happened - it was a long time ago - have I said the name of the director but it was for a big film.''

Justin Bieber is 'a relationship guy'

Justin Bieber says he's "very much a relationship guy."

The 21-year-old singer, who split from Selena Gomez last October after four years of dating and has recently been linked to model Hailey Baldwin, claims the biggest misconception about him is "that I'm self-centered" and insists he prefers focusing his attention on one girl at a time.

The 'Confident' hitmaker also says he has turned over a new leaf after a string of controversial incidents last year, during which he was arrested for DUI [Driving Under the Influence] in Miami and also charged with vandalizing his former neighbour's home with eggs in Calabasas, California.

He told the April issue of Men's Health magazine: "I do aspire to be a class act. This has really been a big year for me, as far as figuring stuff out. This is almost like a full 180 from how I was. Yesterday - a year from yesterday - I was in jail."

Justin thinks his life spun out of control because he had to grow up in the spotlight.

He said: "I had to grow up so quick. And it was almost like I grew up for the public but I didn't necessarily grow up. There were things I had to do, as far as the way I had to make relationships, and conversation, but as far as actually growing up, there were a lot of things I missed out on."

But he admits there is still a part of him that never wants to get older.

He said: "I want to always have that sense of purity inside of me where I don't...I don't want to lose that sense of purity."

Demi Lovato is more confident

Demi Lovato refuses to let "bad hair and make-up days" define her.

The 'Heart Attack' singer, who entered rehab in 2010 for treatment for an eating disorder, drug and alcohol addiction, and self-harming disorder, says she is much more body confident now and doesn't need to have a "thigh gap" to feel beautiful.

The 22-year-old said: "For some reason this whole thigh gap thing has kind of swept over what people think is beautiful. And if you have that naturally then that's totally fine, you're still beautiful. But my body doesn't naturally have that."

The brunette beauty wants to promote a healthier image and posted a photograph of her bikini body on Instagram last weekend, with the caption: "Regardless of what society tells you these days... You don't have to have a thigh gap to be beautiful. It is possible to love your body the way it is. #fitness #health #acceptance #selflove"

She explained: "I wanted to show my fans out there who don't naturally have [a thigh gap] that [it's] okay. You don't have to have what you see in the magazines if that's not what your body naturally has."

But Demi hopes that her critics will stop focusing on her appearance.

She told E! News: "Your body is going to change, your looks are going to change, you're going to have great hair and make-up days, you're going to have bad hair and make-up days--it doesn't define who you are. At the end of the day, who you are is who people really see."

Taylor Swift grants dying fan's last wish

Taylor Swift granted a dying four-year-old fan's last wish by speaking to her on the phone for 20 minutes.

The 25-year-old singer made a surprise FaceTime call to Jalene Salinas, who is suffering from an aggressive form of terminal brain cancer, on Monday (02.03.15) to make the youngster's final dream come true after she expressed a desire to dance with Taylor to her hit 'Shake it Off'.

Speaking to Jalene's mother Jennifer Arriagas during the phone conversation, she said: "I got back from London and I heard about her and it's just unfathomable to have to watch your baby go through this."

According to a USA Today report, Jalene was said to be "in pain" and as a result "didn't talk much" to her heroine but she did say "bye and thank you" to the superstar singer.

Jalene's final dream came true after Taylor's fans - known as Swifties - started a social networking campaign to get #ShakeItOffJalene trending after hearing about her dying wish.

Following the surprise chat, Jennifer admitted she is delighted all of Jalene's wishes have now been "checked off".

She told KENS 5 News: "We can check everything off and as her mom it means the world to me that she got to do and see [everything] and everything is checked off now.

"It means so much to me that you reached out to us."

Eric Clapton romanced Princess Diana?

Eric Clapton enjoyed a romantic liaison with Britain's Princess Diana, a new book has claimed.

The 70-year-old guitarist enjoyed a flirtation with the late princess - who separated from husband Prince Charles in 1992 - after meeting regularly at his favourite restaurant, San Lorenzo in London's upmarket Knightsbridge.

Paul Scott wrote in his new book 'Motherless Child: The Definitive Biography of Eric Clapton': "One who regularly caught his eye was another San Lorenzo devotee, Princess Diana. They had first been introduced backstage at a charity concert for Prince Charles' the Prince's Trust at Wembley Arena in June 1987. Clapton later cringed that he had rather presumptuously addressed her as 'Di'. For her part, the princess didn't bat an eyelid.

"According to a society friend of Clapton's, who was also on speaking terms with Diana, the attraction between them was 'absolutely obvious'.

"'There was a 'Carry On' film element to it,' says the friend. 'A lot of winking, and overtly steamy looks.

"A story went around that one time when she and Eric were both at San Lorenzo, Diana began sucking suggestively on a piece of ice as she gave him the eye. Everyone loved that.

"Did things ever go any further? 'Well,' says the friend, 'they were both free agents and Eric's always liked a challenge.' "

The author went on to suggest the 'Wonderful Tonight' hitmaker and the princess were able to enjoy the "utmost discretion" of the eatery's owner.

However, it seems things didn't end well between the pair.

In an extract from the book obtained by the Daily Mail newspaper, the author added: "Perhaps whatever there was between them soured, because a decade after her death, Clapton would describe Diana as a 'manipulative and sick person'."
