Bradley Cooper and Suki Waterhouse have sparked talk of an engagement after they were spotted wearing matching gold rings.
The Hangover star has been dating the British model since last year (13) after meeting at an awards show in London, and they fuelled gossip about the state of their relationship during a night out in the British capital earlier this month (Jul14).
Waterhouse was spotted wearing a gold band on her wedding finger as they left London hotspot The Chiltern Firehouse, and Cooper had a matching trinket on his left hand.
Reports in the U.K. suggest the jewellery is a symbol of the pair's commitment rather than an official engagement.
Late star James Gandolfini's teenage son Michael is following in the footsteps of his famous dad by attending a fundraiser for one of the actor's favourite charities. The Sopranos star was a frequent supporter of the Wounded Warriors scheme, which offers sporting events and rehabilitation to soldiers wounded in action.
On Wednesday (09Jul14), Michael Gandolfini, 14, was on hand at a firehouse in Staten Island, New York, to help raise money for the organisation's Adaptive Sports Programme.
Michael chatted with firefighters as well as soldiers who benefit from the charity.
James Gandolfini suffered a heart attack in June last year (13) while he was on vacation with Michael in Italy.
Veteran singer Bryan Ferry has sparked rumours he has reunited with his estranged wife after the former couple enjoyed a night out in London. The former Roxy Music star split from his second wife, Amanda Sheppard, in 2013 after less than two years of marriage.
They were granted a decree nisi in court in March (14), with Sheppard putting the split down to "continuing unreasonable behaviour" from Ferry.
However, the pair sent gossips into a spin when they were spotted on a night out at London hotspot The Chiltern Firehouse on Thursday (12Jun14). Ferry and Sheppard smiled and appeared in good spirits as they left the restaurant together.
The 68 year old wed the former public relations worker in Turks and Caicos in 2011. He was previously married to Lucy Helmore from 1982 until their divorce in 2003.
A spokesperson for Ferry has not responded to a request for a comment as WENN goes to press.
Lindsay Lohan, Lily Allen and Kylie Minogue were among the stars who turned out to help British rocker Noel Gallagher celebrate his birthday at a party in London on Thursday night (29May14). The former Oasis star turned 47 on Thursday and he spent his big day in the studio working on new music.
In the evening, he hosted a star-studded party at London hot spot Chiltern Firehouse for celebrity guests including Hollywood actress Lohan, who was spotted leaving the bash with a mystery man in the early hours of Friday morning (30May14).
Other attendees included pop stars Allen and Minogue, Black Eyed Peas rapper will.i.am, fashion designer Stella McCartney, Kasabian rocker Sergio Pizzorno, and model-turned-actress Suki Waterhouse.
Hollywood actress Jennifer Lawrence has sparked speculation she is to tie the knot with her boyfriend Nicholas Hoult after she was spotted wearing an elaborate ring on her wedding finger.
The Hunger Games actress has been dating the Brit on and off since 2011 after meeting him on the set of superhero movie X-Men: First Class. The couple is now rumoured to be planning a wedding after Lawrence was seen sporting a large turquoise gem on her ring finger while enjoying a drink with her partner outside an Italian restaurant in north London on Thursday (24Apr14).
She was also photographed wearing the ring later that evening following dinner with Hoult at the British capital's Chiltern Firehouse hotspot.
British pop star Lily Allen appears to have mended a rift with her former friend Kate Moss after the pair was spotted dining together in London on Monday night (31Mar14). The Smile hitmaker was welcomed into the supermodel's inner circle in 2009, and they were snapped partying together in the U.K. capital and abroad.
They eventually drifted apart as Allen gave up her party lifestyle and stepped out of the spotlight to focus on motherhood, and Moss was reportedly left off the guest list when the singer married Sam Cooper in 2011.
In a TV documentary, Lily Allen: From Riches To Rags, which aired that same year (11), Allen admitted: "I still have her number. I just don't call it very often."
However, the pair now appears to have revived the friendship. They were snapped enjoying a night out together at London's Chiltern Firehouse restaurant on Monday and the fun continued until the early hours of Tuesday morning (01Apr14).
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D's biggest misstep in its first season has been its characters. Its worst offenders are Fitz-Simmons, the rambling co-dependent scientist duo that are so one-note, even the other characters can't be bothered to call them by their separate names, instead often hyphenating them into a single data-spouting entity. With "F.Z.Z.T," Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D has delivered one of the show's better hours by raising the stakes and putting one of its characters in actual danger, while also giving some much-needed character development to the dorky duo in question.
The episode opens with a troop of Marvel's version of the Boy Scouts (since this is in the Marvel Universe, lets call them Captain America Campers) gathered around the fire. One of the adult troop leaders hears some mysterious humming and goes off to investigate, but ends up getting killed by an unknown entity with static electric powers that leaves his body mysteriously floating in the air.
The best player in the World for movie trailers, Hollywood interviews and movie clips.
Next, we catch up with the S.H.I.E.L.D. crew. Coulson is getting a physical and appears to be in perfect health, but something about this second chance at life is still gnawing at him. Elsewhere, Skye is feeling the chill from Ward's cold shoulder after the events of the last episode. Betraying your team to your previous hacktivist organization tends to leave some people a little frosty. Fitz and Simmons lighten the mood with some fun Ward impressions, but the fun is fleeting when the team is called to investigate the mysterious case of the floating man.
The S.H.I.E.L.D. gang travels to the campsite with the body to investigate what happened. Simmons gets too close to the gravitationaly challenged man and gets a seemingly innocuous static zap that causes the body to fall to the ground. Coulson and the others wonder who or what could have caused the man's death.
The team then picks up another electo-static event, this time in a barn where they find another man floating in the air. It turns out the two victims were both firefighters that were among the first responders to the battle of New York. The team travels to the firehouse where they find another man who hears the humming. Coulson comforts the man by telling him of his own experience with death before leaving the man to die the same way his friends did.
Simmons puzzles out that the random electro-static deaths are due to a dormant alien virus left on a Chitari helmet, a virus that has also infected Simmons herself. Coulson puts Simmons in quarantine while she scrambles to create an anti-serum for the virus, but fails in every attempt to stop the disease. It turns out that if Simmons dies in the same electro-static event that killed the others, the jet will be blown out of the sky. When a last ditch effort to find the right anti-serum appears to fail, she decides to sacrifice herself and save the rest of the team by jumping out of the jet. Naturally, the last anti-serum turns out to indeed work. Agent Ward goes full superhero by jumping out of a jet in an impressive bit of sky-diving, and manages to impossibly save Simmons from going splat and injects her with the correct antidote. Back on the plane, everyone's relieved that Simmons survived, and Coulson reveals that he feels different since coming back, but Melinda May tells him to embrace his second life, however different he might feel. The scene also hints that May has had a death experience of her own.
Simmons' looming death gives way to some good character work that S.H.I.E.L.D has been in serious need of. The episode also helped to develop Fitz and Simmons as indvidual characters. Jemma coming that close to death also asserts to the audience that these weekly adventures are actually pretty dangerous, and that the risk of death for these characters is always in the air. Hopefully the show will continue this upward swing in momentum in the coming weeks.
Quipiest Quips and Other Observations"I'm agent Grant Ward. I can shoot the legs off a flea from 500 yards, as long as it's not windy.""Do you want a cookie?" Melinda May offering people baked goods is terrifying."Little heavy on the iron, but don't worry, you don't have to start calling me Iron Man." I think I heard the distinct sound of the entire world groaning after that line.Knowing that this is a Joss Whedon show in some capacity, I sort of expected Simmons to bite the dust. Joss loves killing of characters just when you thought they were safe. Hold on, I'm having a bit of television PTSD
White Collar returned with Neal Caffrey (Matthew Bomer) straddling the line between legitimacy and crime while his FBI handler, Peter Burke (Tim DeKay), wavered between trust and cynicism of his charge.
The episode opened with Burke in prison after being framed at the end of the summer season. His wife (Tiffani Thiessen) was having a conversation with Caffrey and told him to do what he had to do to free him. Before he could, he was contacted by a mysterious person who turned out to be Curtis Hagen, whom Caffrey had put away in the first episode. After a bit of a chat, Hagen said that he could make the incarcerated FBI agent a free man. He acknowledged that he was the reason that the federal prosecutor was leaning so heavily on Burke, and then indicated that he could get him to let him go. In return, he asked Caffrey to do a quick 'smash and grab.' He added one more catch - get his father's confession on tape as the one who actually committed the shooting...even forge it if necessary.
Mozzie immediately jumped into the fray (well, as much as a geek who abhors physical activity can). He had also managed to crack Neil's tracking anklet. He got Caffrey to record a confession, using technology to make it sound like his fathers' voice. The plan worked and Burke was sprung. Burke believed that it was really Caffrey's father who called and he thanked him. Yet another layer of deceit between Caffrey and Burke, since Caffrey did nothing to dissuade the FBI agent. Hagen then called in his favor.
More intrigue: Burke got an offer from Boris McGiver (playing an unnamed higher-up) to become the head of White Collar. Always good to see McGiver when his character, Hersh, isn't getting his ass kicked on Person of Interest.
Hagen wanted Caffrey to get Welsh gold coins from a heavily guarded vault. What happened next involved some comedy with Mozzie wearing an awful wig and goatee, pretending to be a jumper. Caffrey played a fireman who was supposed to be rescuing him and got the building next to the vault evacuated. There were two sequences going on - Caffrey getting the coins and Mozzie finding out out that the suicide negotiator that was supposed to talk him down had even more insane conspiracy theories than he did.
Of course the plan went awry when an overzealous fireman probie made Caffrey hand over the oxygen tanks before he could steal away. It was White Collar 101: Thy most thought-through plan shall falleth through due to the most silly things ever. To make matters worse, the missing coins case was assigned to who? Three guesses.. OK. No. One guess. BURKE, of course. He asked Caffrey to consult, as well. Then of course, he tumbled on to the air tanks that Caffrey used to store the coins ('Why are there air tanks if there isn't a fire?"). Caffrey and Mozzie had to figure out how to save themselves and thwart Burke at the same time. They went to the firehouse and Caffrey got the coins out, but managed to stir Burke's suspicions.
The episode ended with Burke stepping down as Caffrey's handler, realizing that while he thought of Caffrey as a friend, he was still a criminal. He then gave him a new ankle braclet, much to Caffrey's chagrin. Oh, and Hagen revealed that he was really targeting Caffrey and had blackmail material on him from the job. His intention... get him paroled. Ah, White Collar, you and your twists. The plot is afoot and it's interesting that they would bring Hagen back after all this time and to expect many to remember what part he played in the pilot episode. Not all of us have been with the show from the start. But then again, Mark Sheppard is riding a much larger wave of recognition after all those seasons of playing Crowley on Supernatural. He's playing another demon in this show, one who is always making deals. It's going to be an interesting ride.
Billy Joel was in the spotlight at the 9/11 memorial ceremony in New York City on Wednesday morning (11Sep13) after he was asked to lead a motorcycle parade to the Ground Zero site. The Piano Man, who was born and raised in New York, rode a bike alongside the state's Governor Andrew Cuomo and reality TV star Paul Teutul, Jr., leading a convoy of firefighters to the site where the World Trade Center once stood in downtown Manhattan.
The procession rode from the Rescue 1 firehouse on West 43rd Street to Ground Zero, where thousands perished in the 2001 terrorist attacks.
Joel admits he felt honoured to be part of the annual ceremony at the site, telling the New York Daily News, "They invited me to be in the motorcycle ride. It's an honour. I was at ground zero a few days after 9/11 and it was the worst thing I ever saw in my life. To be asked to do this is very moving."
