Catherine, Duchess Of Cambridge is set to meet the cast and crew of hit period drama Downton Abbey during a special visit to the set. The pregnant British royal will make a trip to Ealing Studios in London to meet castmembers including Dame Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville, Elizabeth McGovern, Lesley Nicol and Robert James-Collier, as well as the show's creator Julian Fellowes.
The Duchess will view the set where many of the servants' scenes are filmed, and see the show's make-up artists, costume designers and seamstresses at work, while she will also team up with Bonneville to unveil a plaque there.
The visit is set to take place on 12 March (15).
Prince William previously revealed the royals are both big fans of the hit TV show, admitting his wife introduced him to the series following the birth of their son, Prince George, in 2013.
Carly Rae Jepsen has branded Tom Hanks the hardest-working actor in Hollywood for braving the freezing conditions in New York City while filming a role in her new music video. The pop star recruited the Big actor for a cameo role in the promo for her new single I Really Like You, and Hanks turned out to film scenes for the project in the Big Apple last month (Feb15).
Jepsen has now revealed the actor stood outside in the bitter wintry weather for hours while he shot his scenes, and she was astounded by his dedication.
She tells U.S. news show Access Hollywood, "The entire day he just wowed me. I don't think he knows he's Tom Hanks. He's just the sweetest, kindest, most humble man you've ever met.
"He was out in the freezing cold, singing my song take after take, while I was in my trailer with my hot chocolate being like, 'Good job Tom! Do it again one more time!'"
Hanks adds of the shoot, "It was stellar. Carly's a cool kid. We had a lot of fun."
Pop star Justin Bieber also features in the video.
"The show has changed my mind on the way I used my devices, big time. Any time my iPhone is face up, I face it down and put the camera down, because even though you might not be using it, you're still connected to the wi-fi, so you're still at risk and someone can still hack into it. I don't even have FaceTime! If only you knew what I knew." Actor/rapper Shad Moss has become more paranoid about his devices since he signed up for new CSI spin-off series CSI: Cyber, which focuses on cyber crime investigators.
Welsh actor Luke Evans is attached to another big blockbuster after portraying Dracula, Zeus, Apollo, Aramis and The Hobbit's Bard on the big screen - he is in negotiations to play Beauty & The Beast's Gaston opposite Emma Watson. The 35-year-old movie star, who has reportedly replaced Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne as the frontrunner for the role, will be expected show off his singing skills in the Disney film, according to Variety.com, after having previously performed in West End musicals Rent, Miss Saigon and Piaf.
News of the casting comes as a new French adaptation of Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont's fairytale roles out across Europe. The Christophe Gans movie features Vincent Cassel, Lea Seydoux and Andre Dussollier.
Spanish actress Anna Allen has been exposed as a fraud after doctoring photos and posting them online to make it appear as if she attended the 2015 Oscars. The 32 year old, who previously appeared on Spanish TV series Cuentame como paso, recently uploaded a picture of herself in a black dress she claimed to have worn on the red carpet at Hollywood's big night and shared it with her 22,000 Instagram.com followers.
She even boasted about chatting with ceremony host Neil Patrick Harris.
In a post-Oscars interview with Spanish newspaper El Mundo, Allen alleged the pair spoke for "a good while", adding, "I told him I was a fan of his role in How I Met Your Mother."
However, newspaper editors became suspicious after inspecting her red carpet photo and noticing irregularities with the lighting in the shot, which they subsequently discovered had actually been taken in a studio and then superimposed onto an Oscars backdrop.
Other images Allen had previously posted on Instagram were also found to be fakes, including a snap of an invite to the 2014 Academy Awards, which she had taken from Lupita Nyong'o's account, and another which appeared to show her posing with the cast of The Big Bang Theory. She had actually used Photoshop to paste her face onto the body of actress Summer Glau.
Allen has since deactivated her social networking blogs in light of the controversy, and representatives for the star, who originally put El Mundo reporters in touch with the actress to discuss her 2015 Oscars experience, have yet to comment on the embarrassing scandal.
Country superstar Shania Twain is preparing to bow out of touring with one last big trek across North America. The hitmaker wrapped up her two-year Las Vegas residency in December (14) and now she is getting ready to embark on her first road show in 11 years - but it will serve as a farewell tour for fans.
Announcing the news on U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America on Wednesday (04Mar15), she says, "I'm finally, after 11 years, I'm going back on tour. It's been a long time...
"This is going to be a big tour for me because it's going to be my last... so I'm gonna make the most of it... It's a celebration tour for me...
"I really feel that Las Vegas, the Still The One show, was a huge mountain to climb for me. I took that challenge on. I not only got through it, I enjoyed it, it was a huge reward and I see the upcoming tour as a celebration of that and I just feel like I'm ready to hang my hat up in that regard.
"I wanna go out with a bang... It's gonna be a kick-a**, rocking show."
The Rock This Country tour will kick off in Seattle, Washington in June (15) and take in 48 cities, wrapping up in Fresno, California on 23 August (15), five days before Twain's 50th birthday.
Twain admits approaching the age milestone while touring will also impact her show, adding, "It's all gonna come together. I'll be an emotional wreck!"
However, Twain will not be turning her back on music altogether - she is planning to release her long-awaited follow-up to 2002's Up! album after the tour.
She promises, "I want it to come out when I'm 50, so it will happen."
Oscars presenter Ansel Elgort was secretly betting against the technicians behind Guardians Of The Galaxy winning the Best Visual Effects Academy Award last month (Feb15) because he feared he would "pull a Travolta" and mispronounce their names. The Fault In Our Stars actor helped to announce the winner of the technical prize at Hollywood's big night, but he admits he was working up a sweat fretting about who would claim the title because there was only one group of film editors' names he could actually figure out how to pronounce.
Elgort feared messing up the names would get him banned from future ceremonies and turn him into a laughing stock, like John Travolta, who infamously introduced Broadway singer/actress Idina Menzel as 'Adele Dazeem', at the awards show in 2014.
The 20 year old says, "I was actually most nervous because I had to present Best Visual Effects and the people who make visual effects are really good at their jobs, but they have really hard names to pronounce for some reason...
"I didn't know who was gonna win, obviously, and whoever wins, it's four names per winner... I looked at all the people who could've won and I said, 'OK, I really hope Guardians of the Galaxy doesn't win' - no offence - because it's all the four names I couldn't pronounce! I didn't wanna pull a Travolta; it's my first time at the Oscars, I'll never be invited back...!"
Elgort's nerves were put at ease once he opened the golden envelope and discovered Guardians of the Galaxy's Stephane Ceretti, Nicolas Aithadi, Jonathan Fawkner and Paul Corbould had lost out to the guys behind Interstellar - Paul J. Franklin, Andrew Lockley, Ian Hunter and Scott R. Fisher.
He adds, "I've never been so happy that someone won an Oscar. I was like, 'Guys, your work is great and your names are even better!'"

It's common in Hollywood for actors to fall in love after playing a couple in a movie, just look at Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. But what about the actors who quietly work with their significant others? We think it's more interesting to play "Spot The Spouse" when watching a movie or TV show.
