Famous actress Kate Winslet decided to open up about her experiences while growing up. The star claimed that she was bullied as a child and of course she has been through some very difficult moments. With these comments, Kate also decided to share a powerful message during the fourth annual WE Day UK event.
The event took place in Wembley, London. Kate recalled during the event some bad memories from her childhood and she delivered her inspirational message. “They called me ‘Blubber,’ they teased me for wanting to act. Locked me in the cupboard and would laugh at me,” the famous actress said.
“I wasn’t the prettiest and I was even told that I’d be lucky in my acting if I was happy to settle for the fat girl parts. I’d never let go of that, and they’d say, ‘You’re just not what we’re looking for, Kate.’ I’d hear that a lot,” she went on to say. “This unkindness made me feel truly horrendous.”
Kate also revealed that she never got good parts when she was auditioning for school plays. However, she claimed that she never let that take her down and actually she loved every role she got, even though that was being a crocodile or a dancing frog. “I loved acting. It didn’t matter how big or small the parts were. I wanted to be great and I was determined to keep learning,” she said.
And of course, then came the moment that changed her life. She was cast in the role of Rose in Titanic. The famous actress had an encouraging message for the audience. “Get out there and go for it because your generation has the power to rock the world. You can be from anywhere, and you can do anything, believe it. It’s possible to overcome your fears,” she said. “I learned to embrace my flaws, to make no apology for who I am. I dug deep and I decided that I simply wouldn’t listen when they said my body didn’t fit. This is who I am, the real me, Kate from Reading.”
According to the latest rumors, Prince Harry plans on getting married soon. The famous prince is dating actress Meghan Markle and without a doubt things are going perfectly well between the two. Now, the rumors are saying that Harry and Meghan might actually be planning their wedding.
A report from Radar Online revealed that the two stars are thinking about a wedding destination and are considering getting married on the beach. The idea came as one of Harry’s friends had a beach wedding, which Harry liked and thinks about doing himself. The friend wedded in Jamaica and Harry attended the ceremony with Meghan.
“It would be highly irregular for the Prince to have a Royal wedding anywhere but London. However, Harry isn’t your typical Prince,” an insider said. “We have seen him naked in Vegas and now he is dating an American actress,” the same source went on to add. The insider claimed that fans should expect the wedding to occur in the near future and the event will definitely be an intimate one. So, this means that Harry’s fans should not expect a wedding similar to the one of William and Kate.
“Harry does things his way and that will also include how and where he gets married,” the insider explained “He loved the way his friend got married, in the sun by the beach and is now considering it himself,” the same source went on to add. Of course, there are no official comments on this report, but most likely Harry will have a different wedding than the one of his older brother.
Prince Harry and actress Meghan Markle started dating last year. In a unique gesture, the prince decided to officially confirm the relationship in November. He released an official statement in which he claimed that Meghan was indeed his girlfriend and revealed that the reason why he made this public statement was linked to the fact that he was worried about Meghan’s safety. Allegedly, since the rumors on a potential relationship between the two emerged, Meghan was constantly followed around and harassed.
Kim Kardashian revealed what happened to her during the robbery that took place in Paris last year. The famous Keeping Up with the Kardashians star revealed that she actually feared that she would be raped and murdered, while being held at gunpoint by the thieves. The star made her confessions during the latest Keeping Up with The Kardashians episode.
This was the first time when Kim has spoken about this event, which actually occurred about six months ago. Part of her confession emerged last week with a trailer of this episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Kim revealed in tears that she was held hostage as robbers were seeking for money in her Paris suite. The star claimed that she was alone in her Paris suite when this happened. Her sisters, Kourtney and Kendell, were out partying at a club.
Kim revealed that the robbers also handcuffed the hotel concierge in her room, who also translated to Kim what the robbers wanted. “Are we going to die? Are they going to kill us,” Kim recalled asking. “I was just crying and like ‘tell them I have babies.'” Kim said that the robbers duct taped her mouth to make sure that she won’t scream.
“He grabs my legs and I wasn’t, I had no clothes on under [my robe] and he pulled me towards him at the front of the bed and I thought, ‘okay, this is the moment. They’re going to rape me,” she said. “And I fully mentally prepped myself and then he didn’t and he duct taped my legs together,” Kim added while crying. Kim also claimed that she was held at gunpoint and she believed that the robbers were going to shoot her in the heard.
Luckily for Kim nothing happened to her and the robbers took the jewelry they found and left. Kim then called her sisters and of course she was in shock. Kim said in a Twitter post that she wanted to share what happened with the viewers of her reality show because it is important for them to hear everything from her. “I have always shared so much & I’m not going to hold back when this was probably one of the most life changing experiences for me,” she twitted.
Madonna has not been so much in the media attention lately. However, this seems to have changed now. The star once again got the spotlight, as it has been claimed that she is dating a new man. And once again Madonna is linked to a young hot guy.
The news was reported by Radar Online, which claimed that Madonna has found a much younger boyfriend, who is actually able to keep up with her sexual needs. The singer, who is 58 years old, and this new guy were seen together enjoying a romantic date in the city. The pair was spotted at Jon Bakshi’s Megu. “Madonna dined at Jon Bakshi’s Megu last night in with an attractive man who looked to be in his 20s,” an insider said.
The same source claimed that the pair enjoyed a great dinner, including taro, salmon and spicy cheese dumplings. The name of this man was not revealed, but it seems that he was very close to the singer. They were sitting next to each other and seemed to be spending a great time together. And that is not all. This man allegedly also accompanied Madonna during her recent trip to Africa. Madonna adopted four-year-old twins Estere and Stella.
“Madonna loves young ethnic men with a little bit of flavor and this guy is exactly that,” the source said. “She also likes her men to be able to keep up with her sexually and she is telling her friends that he totally fits the bill!” the same insider added.
According to the source, Madonna wants to keep this relationship a secret for the moment, and she now wants to focus on her children and on her family. And of course, her new boyfriend has nothing else to do than to agree with the famous singer. “When you are dating Madonna, it is kinda of assumed that you are almost her property,” the source said. “Whoever she is dating has to be okay with doing what she is doing and going where she wants to go.”
Madonna has several times been linked to a series of young men. She was most recently dating Aboubakar Soumahoro, who was spotted with the star during a trip to Switzerland.
Selena Gomez has always been quite open in talking about her personal problems. Now, the famous singer decided to open up about her rehab stint and she also decided to talk about her reasons in stopping using Instagram. Selena opened up during a new interview for Vogue.
So, even though fans could see Instagram shares from Selena, they weren’t actually posted by her singer, but by her assistant who has been posting on Selena’s behalf on Instagram. The star said that her last post dates three months back.
“As soon as I became the most followed person on Instagram, I sort of freaked out. It had become so consuming to me. It’s what I woke up to and went to sleep to. I was an addict, and it felt like I was seeing things I didn’t want to see, like it was putting things in my head that I didn’t want to care about. I always end up feeling like s**t when I look at Instagram,” Selena confessed, adding that this is why she has decided to take a step back.
Initially, Selena deleted the Instagram app from her phone after she entered rehab and she just stopped using it. She actually said that she doesn’t even know the password to the account. “People so badly wanted me to be authentic, and when that happened, finally, it was a huge release. I’m not different from what I put out there,” Selena said. She went on to add that she has been very vulnerable with her fans at different moments in her life and sometimes she said things she shouldn’t have.
However, Selena still believes that being honest is the best thing she can do. Selena went on to talk about her decision to seek rehab treatment after she canceled her tour. She claimed that she was very down at that moment. “My self-esteem was shot. I was depressed, anxious. I started to have panic attacks right before getting onstage, or right after leaving the stage,” she said. “Basically I felt I wasn’t good enough, wasn’t capable. I felt I wasn’t giving my fans anything, and they could see it-which, I think, was a complete distortion.”
The fact that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West may be dealing with some serious marriage problems has been rumored for quite some time. Several rumors talked about a series of issues in this marriage, but despite all the claims Kim and Kanye have remained together.
Now, another report talked about this marriage and claimed that Kim actually feels trapped in her marriage to Kanye West and is totally unhappy. A source talking to Radar Online claimed that in fact Kim feels “miserable” in this marriage. The same insider explained that Kim feels hopeless and would like to change things.
The insider said that Kim is doing really bad. “Kim is having a really, really difficult time holding it together right now!” the insider explained. “She seems absolutely miserable and would like nothing more than to turn this around, but at this point it seems like she is just hopeless,” it added. The same source claimed that Kanye West’s recent breakdown has definitely not helped the marriage. Actually, it made things more difficult.
“It is like Kanye has the mentality of a five year old and Kim is more like his mother than his wife,” the insider explained. And of course, Kim is not happy with this, so the two are always fighting. The source claimed that the stars are “constantly fighting behind closed doors and she just seems tired of playing this charade with him.” Unfortunately for Kim, there is no one who can help her.
As imagined, the stars have not talked about this report, but Gossip Cop did dismiss the claims. The celebrity site said that it talked to a rep for Kim, who revealed that the whole story was false. The rep claimed that there are no issues in the marriage of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
Well, this is not the only rumor that has been linked to Kim lately. It has also been claimed that the famous Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has actually underwent butt and breast reduction surgery. However, this report was also dismissed by Gossip Cop, who claimed that the story is not true.

“They have been seeing each other for a few months — and were together in LA this past weekend,” the source said. “They are really into each other because they have so much in common — from their Latin roots, to their love of New York, and their kids,” the same insider added. The rumors on a potential relationship emerged after Alex attended one of Jennifer’s Las Vegas shows. Then, Jennifer took to Instagram to like a photo posted by Alex, so immediately a link was made.
Before being linked to Jennifer Lopez, Alex Rodriguez is known to have dated Anne Wojcicki, a Silicon Valley CEO. The two dated for about one year, but it has been claimed that they separated because they were too different. He has previously been linked to actresses Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson, but also to famous singer Madonna.

A series of rumors claimed that she was dating rapper Drake, although Jennifer refused to confirm this and actually denied the dating claims during one interview. She is also known to have dated dancer Casper Smart for years and of course Jennifer was married once, to Marc Anthony. She has twins from her marriage with the singer.
Well, after the new rumors emerged, an insider said that Drake was really devastated with the fact that Jennifer moved on so quickly with Alex. “Drake hates the news because he feels like he let her get away,” a source said according to Hollywood Life. The same insider went on to add that Drake believes that Alex is now “enjoying the relationship he could have had with her.” The source also said that Drake understands her decision and thinks that Alex is someone that Jennifer needs.
According to the latest rumors, things are not going well between Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes. Actually, the latest rumors indicate that the two famous actors have decided to separate. And naturally, a series of claims have been made about a potential split, including that Emma Stone might be to blame for the end of the romance.
So, several reports indicated that Ryan and Eva ended their relationship after no less than five years together. Apparently, it all started with a fight that the two actors had before the Oscars because of Emma. The news was first reported by Star Magazine, which said that Eva was the one who decided to end things after this massive fight. According to the report, Emma Stone was the reason why this happened.
So, the magazine claimed that Eva was very jealous of Emma, whom Ryan starred with in La La Land. Apparently, the actress did not like the fact that Emma and Ryan were getting very close and was extremely jealous of Emma’s relationship with her boyfriend. Consequently, Eva was ready to end the romance. The magazine went on to talk about the fight that Eva and Ryan allegedly had.
So, the magazine claimed that this fight occurred a day before the Oscars. Apparently, the fight started when Ryan asked his girlfriend to accompany him at the awards show. Allegedly, Eva refused to do this because she did not want to see Emma and because she was very upset with their closeness.
“Ryan desperately wanted Eva by his side. He told her how bad it looked when she wasn’t there when he won his Golden Globe in January and that he was tired of making excuses for her. Ryan said that if she wasn’t going to support him on the biggest night of his career, then would she ever? Eva snapped back that he shouldn’t be worried, because Emma would be there for him,” an insider said according to the celebrity site.
The same source said that Ryan left after the fight and it remains unclear if he went back home that night. The source also claimed that Eva could have already spoken to a lawyer about the split.
Famous actor Elijah Wood surely made some curious and shocking revelations. The famous actor said during a new interview that there actually is a pedophilia problem in Hollywood. Without a doubt, his claims came as a shock for many.
“Clearly something major was going on in Hollywood. It was all organized. There are a lot of vipers in this industry, people who only have their own interests in mind,” Elijah Wood said during a new interview with the Sunday Times.
“There is darkness in the underbelly. What bums me about these situations is that the victims can’t speak as loudly as the people in power. That’s the tragedy of attempting to reveal what is happening to innocent people: they can be squashed, but their lives have been irreparably damaged,” he went on to add. “If you’re innocent, you have very little knowledge of the world and you want to succeed,” the famous actor explained.
“People with parasitic interests will see you as their prey. What upsets me about these situations is that the victims can’t speak as loudly as the people in power,” Wood added. Luckily, Elijah Wood had no tragic experience as a child actor in Hollywood, but claimed that this was his case only because his mother protected him and prevented him from attending the parties at which such things were happening.
Elijah Wood claimed that he believes that these things are still occurring in Hollywood. As imagined, the actor did not reveal too much detail on his claims, so there are no specific situations shared or names revealed in his interview. Well, allegations against a lot of senior Hollywood names have emerged in the most recent years. And some actors also made certain revelations.
For example, Corey Feldman, a former child actor, revealed that he was surrounded by abusers while working in the industry as a teenager. “The No. 1 problem in Hollywood was and is—and always will be—pedophilia,” Feldman said during an interview dating back to 2011. Feldman was very direct in his interview and managed to cause a lot of headlines at the time when the claims were first made.
Kanye West is allegedly working at a new project. The star, who is well-known for his involvement in the fashion world and his clothing collection, seems to have a new plan. So, Kanye plans on launching a new makeup brand under the name Donda.
Well, Kanye is not the only one in the family with interests in this domain. Actually, his upcoming collection will be in direct completion with Kylie Jenner’s makeup collection. Kylie is Kanye’s sister-in-law, as she is the younger sister of the rapper’s famous wife, Kim Kardashian. The news was first reported by TMZ, which claimed that Kanye has already started working at his beauty brand.
TMZ claimed that the star has started the legal proceedings to open a new business focused on makeup products. The documents reveal that the business will produce makeup, perfumes, lotions and cosmetics under the brand Donda. Allegedly, the name choice has a special meaning for Kanye, being a homage to his late mother. Kanye’s mom passed away in 2007.
Kanye also wants to have a wider use of this name, so he filed for a patent at the United States Patent and Trademark office. Kanye trademarked the word for use on all beauty products and other related products. TMZ claimed that Kanye may also be thinking about releasing a fashion line under this name and he will actually have no problem in doing so, as the rapper decided to trademark the brand for use on bags, clothing and jewelry.
Kanye West has surely had a very busy beginning of the year. The star has recently presented his fifth Yeezy collection at the New York Fashion Week, which he attended alongside his famous family. His wife was also there and Kim later on took to Twitter to praise her husband and reveal how proud she was of his work.
Well, the only thing to be discovered is when the new beauty brand will be launched. Of course, it is also interesting to find out if Kanye plans on working at a new fashion line under this name in the near future.
