Kate and Wills Are The King and Queen of Hollywood
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have continued their tour of popularity and thrilled Hollywood at a BAFTA dinner held in LA. Celebrities including Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lopez, Tom Hanks, Jennifer Garner and Stephen Fry were there to bask in their royalty at the celebration of British talent in the film industry in Tinseltown. The newly wed couple played their glamorous roles well with William in black tie and Kate in a lavender Alexander McQueen floor length gown. Prince William, who is the president of BAFTA, greeted the guests in his speech by first thanking Colin Firth for the perfect opening line, “I have a voice.” He went on to say ‘Catherine and I have been hugely looking forward to tonight’s event with its exciting cast, British and American. Thank you all so much for coming. I believe great things will result. And now, as they say: “Lights, Camera, Action”.’ The A-list guests were equally excited and Stephen Fry best summed up their effect on the famous crowd by saying: ‘They are an extraordinary selling point that no other nation has.

Halle Puts Pressure On Ex Over Raising Daughter
The custody battle over daughter Nahla has hotted up again for actress Halle Berry and former boyfriend model Gabriel Aubry. The parents of the gorgeous three-year-old are fighting it out in court with Halle keeping a detailed diary of model Gabriel’s alleged wrong doings. Halle’s lawyer, Laura Wasser brought a thick folder into the hearing that apparently contained a list of all the rules that Gabriel had broken while looking after his daughter. She has even gone as far as saying that he is a negligent father for not helping Nahla adhere to her diet. Halle, a diabetic, has a strict diet that she adheres to and has her daughter on a strict diet as well. But she doesn’t believe that her former partner is adhering to it and is calling his parenting skills into question because of that. A friend close to the hot model said ‘he is criticized for not taking Nahla to the ‘right kind of places’ when he’s with her, not dressing her correctly, not feeding her the right kind of foods. Gabriel said there was a nuclear level melt-down last week because he gave Nahla pizza on one of her ‘non-cheat days. He’s basically being totally micro-managed and has no freedom when it comes to his daughter. Every single time he doesn’t follow every rule, or do things by the book, he’s slammed.’ Seems like he can’t do right for doing wrong!

Jen Chooses Love Over Career
Things  are finally going right for  Jennifer Aniston as she celebrated getting a star on the walk of fame while being cheered on by new boyfriend Justin Theroux. The actress looked relaxed and happy as she sunk her hands and feet into the cement outside
Grauman’s Chinese Theatre while screenwriter Justin showed off his new clean-shaven look. Jen, 42, is enjoying the success of movie Horrible Bosses, will be promoting her upcoming film Wanderlust and has also filmed Inside The Actor’s Studio but all this work is to make way for a year off. Jen is determined that her relationship with Justin, 39, will go the distance by prioritising love over her career. The actress is taking time off to be a full-time girlfriend to Tropic Thunder and Iron Man 2 screenwriter Justin. She has also revealed that filming The Breakup with Vince Vaughn helped her get through her own marriage breakup with Brad Pitt. ‘It was just a beautiful story about a couple breaking up. And I was slightly familiar on the topic and the issue,’ she said last week. ‘I honestly felt like, what a great way to sort of exorcise some of that. I enjoyed it.  You would think otherwise, because even the producers were like, “I don’t know if we should ask you to do this,” but I was like, why not? Turn the page, let’s move on.’

Success Is Sweeter As A Size 10!
Jennifer Hudson has revealed that losing weight opened her up to a whole new world in Hollywood. The singer who used to be a UK size 20 said in an interview with You magazine that she did OK as a plus sized actress and singer but when she dieted down to a size 10 her eyes were opened to what was now available. ‘The truth is, so many more opportunities open up when you’re on the other side, as I am now,’ she said. ‘I’d no idea what I was missing out on. It’s like a whole other world. Suddenly every designer wants to dress you. It’s like, “You look amazing! Please, choose a dress. Have a bag. And what about shoes?” I mean, wow!’ The American Idol reject has had a very public and painful journey. After being rejected by Simon Cowell and his fellow judges, she went on to win a role in Dreamgirls for which she won an Oscar for best supporting actress. She was then devastated when her mother, brother and seven-year-old nephew were killed by her sister’s estranged partner. Putting her grief behind her she had a baby with fiance David Otunga and the results of her post pregnancy diet have won her admiration and praise. In talking about her appeal, she recognises that people relate to her as an underdog.’That’s definitely something not all celebrities have going for them,’ she admits. ‘You’ve seen my career journey right before your eyes, so you feel part of it.’ Now if only we could stick to our diet!!
