Celebrity Scandals: Gossip Center http://www.gossipcenter.com/site/rss2 en Gossipcenter.com Copyright 2010 Celebrity-Gossip.net - All Rights Reserved Mon, 24 Apr 2017 18:25:54 -0400 Ben Affleck Doesn't Want Actor Kids http://www.gossipcenter.com/ben-affleck/ben-affleck-doesnt-want-actor-kids-1273238 Ben Affleck doesn't want his kids to act before they are 18.

The 44-year-old hunk - who has Violet, 11, Seraphina, eight, and Samuel, five, with estranged wife Jennifer Garner - was just seven years old when he began his own career and though he has no regrets about the past, he wouldn't want his brood to experience the "downside" of fame until they are old enough to make their own decisions.

Speaking during a Q&A at the AutFest International Film Festival in California on Sunday (04.23.17), he said: "I think it's a hard thing. I love being an actor, I got into it as a child and I wouldn't change that. But I also wouldn't want to take my kids and push them out there before they were 18.

"If they are 18 and they want to make those choices and do that kind of thing, that's fine. But being a child actor, I just know too much of the downside of what that can be like."

However, the 'Accountant' star doesn't think he'd have enjoyed the success he has as an adult if he hadn't began his own career so young.

He admitted: "I had some great rewards, and I probably wouldn't have made it as an adult had I not built up that body of work as a kid, so it's a strange thing. My kids would be good in the school play. If they can handle that, they're in good shape."

Ben also believes that being thick-skinned has helped him deal with the failures along the way in his career.

He said: "You know you have to have a certain thickness of skin in this business because success and failure, as a performer, are really two sides of the same coin.

"You're putting yourself out there and being evaluated, and it doesn't go one way, all the way, every time."

Amanda Bynes Returns to Twitter http://www.gossipcenter.com/amanda-bynes/amanda-bynes-returns-twitter-1273237 Amanda Bynes has returned to Twitter.

The 31-year-old troubled actress - who has been predominately absent from the social networking site since she was admitted to a psychiatric unit at the end of 2014 - gave fans a nice surprise over the weekend when she shared a photograph online of herself standing next to a beautiful display of flowers looking healthy and happy in her joggers.

Alongside the photo, she wrote: "Stopping to smell the flowers on a gorgeous Sunday!"

This is the first time the blonde beauty has posted anything on the website since February when she felt the need to log back in to address some pregnancy rumors and a fake social media account.

She vented at the time: "I am not @persianla27. I am not getting married and I am not pregnant. I don't understand why twitter won't take @persianla27 down.

"I have asked repeatedly. This person continues to impersonate and harass me and twitter needs to take the account down.

"I repeat: I am not @persianla27. She got into my private instagram somehow and took all my photos and videos. (sic)"

Prior to that, Amanda gave fans an update on her Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising school (FIDM) and admitted she was "really loving it" and learning a lot.

She wrote: "Hi everybody! I haven't tweeted in a long time and I want to say hi! I've been really busy at FIDM, and I just finished my midterms.

"I am really loving school and I feel that I am learning a lot. I enjoy all of my classes and my teachers are excellent.

"I'm really appreciative of all that FIDM is giving me. I've been in school learning about the fashion business so I don't have time to tweet (sic)."

Amanda hasn't had the easiest few years as she was arrested for Driving Under the Influence in 2012 and that kickstarted somewhat of a downward spiral for her.

A few months later she was charged with two hit and runs although these were later dismissed following a financial settlement between her and the victims.

In 2014, Amanda's DUI charge was dropped and she was sentenced to three years probation as part of a plea deal. She also had her licence taken away.

She found herself in hot water once again later that year when she was caught whizzing around the streets of Los Angeles in a car with a suspended licence.

During this time she was also arrested at her home for possession of marijuana, attempting to tamper with evidence and reckless endangerment.

She also raised a few eyebrows following a series of bizarre rants on Twitter and was later placed on psychiatric hold and under the conservatorship of her mother.

She was released from the facility early and went on to focus on her fashion dreams.

Abigail Breslin Feared Rape Report Wouldn't be Believed http://www.gossipcenter.com/abigail-breslin/abigail-breslin-feared-rape-report-wouldnt-be-believed-1273236 Abigail Breslin feared she wouldn't be believed if she reported being raped to police.

The 20-year-old actress recently revealed she had been sexually assaulted by someone she knew, and she has now clarified that it was a person she was in a relationship with and admitted she didn't want to put her loved ones through the ordeal of a legal battle.

Explaining why she didn't report the attack, she wrote on Instagram: "First off, I was in complete shock and total denial.

"I didn't want to view myself as a 'victim,' so I suppressed it and pretended that it never happened. Second of all, I was in a relationship with my rapist and feared not being believed.

"I also feared that if my case didn't lead anywhere, he would still find out and would hurt me even more. Thirdly, I knew how hurt my friends and family would be after finding out, and I didn't want to put them through that."

The 'Scream Queens' star went on to admit that she had been left with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) following the assault and though she has made "progress", she still has "flashbacks and nightmares" about the incident.

She wrote: "I have made a lot of progress since the event occurred, but I won't pretend it isn't something I struggle with. I still have flashbacks, I still get nightmares, I still jump when somebody touches me unexpectedly, even if it's my best friend tapping me on the shoulder."

Abigail was responding to a commenter on her Instagram account who had suggested that "reported rapes are the only rapes that count", and she insisted the remark was incredibly "unhelpful".

She added: "To say that rapes reported are the only rapes that count contributes to the ideology that survivors of unreported rape don't matter. It's unfair, untrue and unhelpful. It's like [saying] you got a black eye from getting punched in the face, but because you didn't call the police, you didn't really get a black eye.

"Unreported rapes count. Reported rapes count. End of story."

Kylie Jenner Slams Rob Kardashian's Relationship With Blac Chyna http://www.gossipcenter.com/kylie-jenner/kylie-jenner-slams-rob-kardashians-relationship-blac-chyna-1761624 Kylie Jenner thinks Rob Kardashian's relationship with Blac Chyna is "unhealthy".

The 19-year-old reality TV star has admitted it's become increasingly hard for her to support Rob's on/off relationship with the 28-year-old model, who is the mother of his five-month-old daughter Dream.

Kylie - who previously dated Chyna's ex-boyfriend, rapper Tyga - said: "It's really hard to support a relationship that's really unhealthy, especially when it's hurting my brother and now it's affected me.

"I just wish they could just stop this kind of roller-coaster ride."

Kylie allowed Rob and Chyna to live in one of her homes because she wanted to support their relationship.

But the teenage businesswoman was angered to discover that her property had been trashed during one of the couple's intense arguments.

Speaking on 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians', Kylie explained: "I agreed, cause me and Chyna kinda put everything behind us, and my brother seemed really happy and I wanted him to enjoy his new life and I wasn't here to block anyone's blessing.

"But my mom calls me to kind of keep me informed on what's going on in my home, and apparently Chyna threw something at my television that I left there. It's just a little disrespectful and I wouldn't do that in anyone else's home."

And in a conversation with her sister Kendall, Kylie warned that things could continue to get worse between Rob and Chyna over the coming months.

She said: "It's just really sad and I don't think it's going to end well."

Kylie's thoughts have been echoed by Rob's sister Kim, who said the relationship "just isn't that healthy".

Kim added: "It's so clear what this relationship is and that they're just not meant to be with each other."

Nick Cannon Admits He Meets Mariah Carey 'Everyday' http://www.gossipcenter.com/mariah-carey/nick-cannon-admits-he-meets-mariah-carey-everyday-1761623 Nick Cannon meets Mariah Carey "everyday".

The 36-year-old star is rumored to be on the cusp of rekindling his romance with the 'We Belong Together' hitmaker - but Nick has insisted the duo are simply "family" for the time being.

Responding to the speculation, Nick - who has five-year-old fraternal twins Moroccan and Monroe with Mariah - told TMZ: "You do realise we're family, right? I meet them everyday."

Despite this, Nick recently admitted he wouldn't rule out a reunion with Mariah, although he doesn't want to "mess up what they have right now".

He said: "That is always family - and when I say that, I say that to a level of I will always love her. That's always my dream girl. Like, to me, just because we're not intimate, I'm closer with her than probably I've ever been just based off of that's my family, that's the mother of my children.

"We talk every single day. We spend more time with the kids' school, karate class, gymnastics class, like, it's a full-time job. I wouldn't want to mess up what we have right now trying to do something else."

In fact, Nick revealed he prefers to "purposefully" stay out of Mariah's personal life, following her recent split from dancer Bryan Tanaka.

He said: "I don't know because I'm not in it. I'm purposefully like, 'Let's go do something with the kids. I don't care what you do in your personal life.' I don't know. I thought it was bizarre as somebody watching from afar. I thought the show was very produced.

"I didn't say that their relationship was just for show. I thought the show fabricated a lot of stuff because, as a producer, I was like, 'Oh, they positioned that. They put the cameras there.' I was watching it from that perspective. But I don't know what the relationship actually is."

Kendall Jenner Admits Keeping Up With the Kardashians Is 'Sad' http://www.gossipcenter.com/kendall-jenner/kendall-jenner-admits-keeping-kardashians-sad-1761622 Kendall Jenner thinks 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' is "sad".

The 21-year-old model and her family members have become worldwide stars because of their appearances on the show, but Kendall has confessed that it's a "depressing" scenario.

Speaking on the program, Kendall said: "The fact that everyone's lives revolve around a show and to make someone happy with a show is the most sad depressing thing."

Kendall's sentiment was echoed by her half-sister Khloe Kardashian, who admitted that not everyone in the family is supportive of the program.

She shared: "We all don't think that it's a good idea that they film this show."

Meanwhile, Kendall is reported to have been "absolutely heartbroken" by the response to her controversial Pepsi ad earlier this month.

The reality TV star was left devastated after some members of the general public slammed the commercial for undermining the Black Lives Matter movement.

A source said: "Kendall is absolutely heartbroken by how everything has turned out, she had no idea it would end up like this.

"She's taking time out from the limelight to come to terms with everything. It's very upsetting for her, she never meant for any of this to happen."

Another source admitted it was a mistake to hire Kendall for the ad.

The insider said: "This is the first controversial campaign she has been involved with. Even though she had nothing to do with the production and the message of the campaign, she will be blamed for this since she is the face.

"The original intent of the commercial was to mirror all the global protests trying to make this world a more equal place for everyone. But they shouldn't have had a celebrity face tied to it if they wanted to try and send a strong message like this."

Bella Hadid Says Gigi Is Her 'Best Friend' http://www.gossipcenter.com/bella-hadid/bella-hadid-says-gigi-her-best-friend-1761621 Bella Hadid's sister Gigi is her "best friend".

The 20-year-old model has followed Gigi, 21, into the fashion industry and Bella admits to relying on her sibling for guidance with her own career.

She told MailOnline: "Gigi is my best friend and I love her to death.

"She's been through everything I'm going through now because she's been in the business longer.

"If I'm sad I'll call her and she always makes me happy again. She's the best, I love her."

The Hadid sisters have historically had markedly different tastes in fashion, but Bella has revealed they've increasing started to swap outfits in recent years.

The dark-haired beauty explained: "When we were 13, she wore lots of colour and was like Malibu girl.

"But I always wore dark colours and leather. Both our styles are evolving more now. I go to her house now and she has all my stuff, we always end up sharing things.

"We share shoes, literally everything. I don't even remember giving it to her and she will completely deny everything until the death of her."

In addition to her sister, Bella also relies on her close friends and family to ensure she doesn't get carried away by her own success.

The model said she surrounds herself with honest people in order to stay grounded.

Bella shared: "It's tough, but I keep the people around me I've known since I was a kid. They know who I am and tell me not to be a b***h if I am."

Bella also said meditation plays a key role in keeping herself grounded in reality.

She explained: "I meditate to start the day. I have a meditation music list that helps me sleep. I like to listen to music and be around my friends.

"I'm very lucky that my job lets me travel the world. I went sky-diving twice in Dubai last week, which was just incredible. Jamaica is my favourite place."

Gemma Arterton Didn't Plan to Become a Film Star http://www.gossipcenter.com/gemma-arterton/gemma-arterton-didnt-plan-become-film-star-1761620 Gemma Arterton never planned to become a movie star.

The 31-year-old actress received a government grant to study at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) in London in her youth, but Gemma never dreamed of being a star of the silver screen and was instead focused on making it on the stage.

She said: "I never thought I'd work in film. I always thought I'd be just a jobbing actor in the theatre.

"I remember in my third year at RADA, I did a budget - about the only one I've done - calculating how much it would cost to live in London. You are told you might work once a year. That's the life."

Gemma - who made her film debut in 'St Trinian's' in 2007 - admits she doesn't know what she would have done if her acting career hadn't worked out.

She told the Irish Times newspaper: "I'm a coaster. If it hadn't worked I'd have found something else to do. It's so precarious. Things fall apart. It's mad. It's not a job for anybody who wants to plan."

Meanwhile, Gemma recently admitted she has been offered different types of roles ever since she started to voice her dislike of big-budget Hollywood movies.

She explained: "I'm approached with projects that are much more female-centric because I've spoken out about it so much, which is a good thing.

"But I don't necessarily look for these kind of feminist messages or anything like that, but it's always quite nice when there's a message in there.

"The future projects I have are all kind-of about women that are great, or not great, they're idiotic, or silly, they're just about women so that's a good thing."

Jesy Nelson Turns to Music After Relationship Heartbreak http://www.gossipcenter.com/jesy-nelson-turns-music-after-relationship-heartbreak-1273230 Jesy Nelson has turned to music to cope with her break-up from Chris Clark.

The 25-year-old singer recently split from the TV star and after returning from Little Mix's US tour this week, Jesy has been finding comfort in her love of music.

She said: "When you're sad you can listen to a song and it can make you feel so much better. I feel like music is magical."

Jesy's bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock thinks Clean Bandit and Louisa Johnson's collaboration 'Tears' is the perfect tune for overcoming heartache, because it carries a "f**k men" message.

Leigh-Anne told the Daily Star newspaper: "Louisa Johnson's song 'Tears' is a good one, because it's basically saying: 'F**k men' really."

Jesy split from Chris earlier this month, with an insider explaining that their separation was the result of them living "different lives".

The singer's life in the spotlight as one of Little Mix was reportedly too much for 'The Only Way Is Essex' hunk.

A source said: "Their lives are so different; it was never going to work.

"Chris is a normal Essex lad, he's very private and low key. He likes spending time with his mum and mates and not being in the spotlight."

Despite this, pair are said to have remained on good terms since they decided to call time on their relationship.

The insider said: "Jesy's life is a world away from his. She's a superstar, travelling the world and living in the spotlight.

"He got a taste of her lifestyle and it couldn't work - it's just not him. There's no bad blood it just wasn't working out between them."

However, Jesy has also suggested she may have had enough of men for good, telling her single pals on Snapchat: "I'm going to turn lesbian!"

Kendra Wilkinson to Star in Sex Tips for Straight Women From a Gay Man http://www.gossipcenter.com/kendra-wilkinson/kendra-wilkinson-star-sex-tips-straight-women-gay-man-1761618 Kendra Wilkinson is to star in a play called 'Sex Tips for Straight Women From a Gay Man'.

The 31-year-old beauty has revealed she is to play a lead role in the production in Las Vegas, which is based on the novel of the same name, and Kendra is hugely excited by the opportunity.

She told E! News: "I am going to play a lead role in a play called 'Sex Tips for Straight Women From a Gay Man' and it will be in Las Vegas. I am going to Vegas!

"Being a lead role in a play in Vegas? Like, come on! How much bigger can it get?"

Kendra will star alongside 'Queer Eye for the Straight Guy' actor Jai Rodriguez, with the show set to begin in Sin City on May 27.

The announcement comes shortly after Kendra claimed she is currently at her sexual peak.

The former Playboy model said that since turning 30, she has never felt more erotically charged or confident when it comes to lovemaking, and her husband, retired NFL player Hank Baskett, is "loving it".

Kendra spilled: "As a 31-year-old woman, I'm at my sexual peak. It's just the way it is - it's natural.

"Hank is loving it. He's supportive of it. I'm kind of flirty with guys every now and then but he's like, 'You put me first and I'm good.'"

In 2014, the couple's relationship was rocked when transsexual woman Ava Sabrina London publicly claimed she and Hank had engaged in a sexual act whilst Kendra was eight months pregnant.

Hank, 34, vehemently denied the allegations and Kendra says their relationship is now healthier than ever before.

The 'Kendra on Top' star said: "We're different people than we were years ago.

"You know, you change. But you have to change together. You have to grow together, not apart, and that's the challenge. Right now we're in the healthiest place we've ever been. It's all about each other.

"We want to help build each other and love each other and make sure we're happy. When we went through out big issue that was scattered everywhere, it needed to happen.

"Unfortunately it was a really rough situation but I'm a very faithful person and I think it really worked out for the best."

Caitlyn Jenner Is '100 Percent' Behind Gay Marriage http://www.gossipcenter.com/bruce-jenner/caitlyn-jenner-100-percent-behind-gay-marriage-1761617 Caitlyn Jenner is "100 percent" in favour of same sex marriage.

The 67-year-old retired Olympian - who was formerly known as Bruce Jenner before transitioning two years ago - stirred up controversy during an appearance on 'The Ellen Degeneres Show' in 2015 when she claimed she believed marriage should be between a man and woman, but has now said she fully supports the idea of same sex couples tying the knot.

Caitlyn - who has been married three times to Chrystie Jenner, Linda Thompson, and Kris Jenner - said: "I am 100 percent behind gay marriage. Let's clear that up right now."

The 'I Am Cait' star admitted the process had been an "evolving" one, but said she is now "all for" gay marriage.

And the star also spoke about her support for US president Donald Trump, but said her backing only comes as long as he doesn't "mess with [her] community".

She said: "Yes, I did vote for Trump but here's the deal breaker with the Republican party. And the deal breaker is, you mess with my community, you do the wrong thing with our community, you don't give us equality and a fair shot, I'm coming after you."

Caitlyn claims Donald even invited her to play golf with him, but she says she won't be taking him up on his offer.

She added: "When I was at the inauguration I did say hi at a cocktail party, and he wanted me to play golf with him. At the time I thought it was a pretty good idea but since Title IX [which relates to the rights of LGBT people when it comes to education and Federal financial assistance] it's not a good idea and so I won't be playing golf with him."

Caitlyn - whose new memoir 'Secrets of My Life' is due out on April 25 - also said she's pushing for "federal guidance" within the LGBT community, as she wants to see transgender people serving in the military.

Speaking in a preview clip for her '20/20' interview on American television network ABC which airs on Friday (21.04.17), Caitlyn said: "When it comes to all equality issues, for the entire LGBT community, what we need is federal guidance. Just like the previous administration said that it was OK to serve as a trans person in the military. We have frontline people, OK? I'm talking Marines, trans guys, on the frontline, fighting for our country. I'm trying to get, especially the Republican party, to make a change."

Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn Caught Having Sex by Police on Their First Date http://www.gossipcenter.com/kurt-russell/kurt-russell-and-goldie-hawn-caught-having-sex-police-their-first-date-1761616 Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn were caught having sex by the police on their first date.

The 66-year-old actor has been in a relationship with the 'Snatched' actress since 1983, and has dished the details on their "bizarre" first date which saw them get caught by police when they were in the middle of an intimate moment.

Kurt recalled the pair - who have 30-year-old son Wyatt Russell together - had gone dancing at a club after meeting on the set of 'Swing Shift', before they decided to head off for some alone time in the house that Goldie, 71, was renovating.

Speaking during an appearance on Harry Connick Jr.'s talk show 'Harry', the 'Guardian's of the Galaxy Vol 2' actor said: "We eventually found our way upstairs looking at imaginary furniture and we were in the imaginary bedroom now and we are realistically having sex when the police walked in.

"We had to break into the place to get in so the next thing I see is a flashlight and Goldie and I are like what? It was bizarre and weird. We were told to go get a hotel room which we did. That was our first date. It was a lot of fun I can't believe it was a long time ago."

Meanwhile, Goldie - who also has 38-year-old daughter Kate Hudson and Oliver Hudson, 40, with her former husband Bill Hudson - previously gushed about her long-term partner, whom she doesn't believe will ever act badly in a movie.

Whilst speaking about Kurt's role in the recently released sequel to the 2014 movie 'Guardians of the Galaxy', Goldie said: "I'm always proud of him, and I'm proud of him with this [film], but I haven't seen the movie yet. He's never bad."

Sheryl Crow's Cancer Made Her Change Her Diet http://www.gossipcenter.com/sheryl-crow/sheryl-crows-cancer-made-her-change-her-diet-1761615 Sheryl Crow says being a "cancer-survivor" made her change her diet.

The 55-year-old singer was diagnosed with breast cancer 10 years ago and says it made her re-evaluate what she was eating and putting in her body and she now ensure she eats lots of high omega fats that are found in oily fish.

The musician, who lives in Nashville, Tennessee, told Us Weekly magazine: "I'm a cancer survivor, and I started learning about what I was eating. So I'm uber into high-omega foods."

In 2012, doctors also discovered Sheryl had a benign brain tumor and she has scans every two years to check on the growth.

She said previously: "I just had one, it's all good, hadn't grown. Well, a minuscule amount but nothing more. I use it now and again as an excuse for my bad memory."

Sheryl adopted her two sons, Wyatt, nine, and Levi, six, after surviving cancer and admitted the life-threatening disease made her look at every aspect of her life with a different perspective.

The 'If It Makes You Happy' hitmaker explained: "It took the whole cancer thing for me to look at my life and go 'what did I think my life was going to look like?' I thought I was going to get married and have kids because that's what my parents did. But I never thought I was going to have cancer. And I also didn't think I was going to become a well-known rock star and travel the world.

"So, after I had cancer I thought I can be a mum - and if a great man comes in and becomes a part of that story, fantastic. But I'm probably not gonna get married and have children in that order. So, let's start the process and see what happens."

And although Sheryl has been unlucky in love, with failed relationships with Eric Clapton, Lance Armstrong and Owen Wilson, she still holds out hope that she will meet her Mr. Right.

She said: "I wouldn't say I've sacrificed [a relationship for a career]. I would just say I was just unsuccessful. It took me a long time to learn what it means to be authentic and intimate with someone - and I don't mean sexually. But to let your guard down and speak your truth and let the chips fall where they may. You have to have that in a relationship. I'm still learning."

Zac Efron Wants to Settle Down http://www.gossipcenter.com/zac-efron/zac-efron-wants-settle-down-1761614 Zac Efron is thinking about settling down.

The 'Baywatch' star turns 30 in October and is keen to find the right girl to settle down with after seeing some of his pals in "great relationships".

He said: "I didn't think much about settling down until recently. Now that I'm getting closer to my 30s, I'm around some great relationships and I've seen expert couples at work. I'm realising that you have to find your own happiness before you can make somebody else happy."

And it is unlikely Zac will meet his future wife on social media as he admitted he is terrible at staying in touch on Twitter and Instagram.

He told the May issue of Cosmopolitan magazine: "I try to stay off my phone as much as possible. It's on silent and the vibrate is off all day. People sometimes hate me for it! But I'm just not a pro at DMing and all that. Forget Twitter, forget Instagram. Let's just chill and be real. Enjoy the moment."

Meanwhile, the 29-year-old actor previously insisted he will never be able to go on a "dictionary definition" date with someone.

He shared: "Dating is something I'll never be able to do. As in the dictionary definition of dating, because one way or another I've impacted that person's life and they'll soon see it. A date has to be very long to dispel whatever people think about me."

However, that's not to say Zac hasn't tried the more modern methods of dating, including signing up to dating app Tinder, but claims he was rejected because nobody believed it was actually him.

He added: "Amazingly, when I signed up for Tinder, nobody swiped me! They thought it was fake. That never happened. Aha-ha."

Damian Lewis: I'm a Minority in the Acting Business http://www.gossipcenter.com/damian-lewis/damian-lewis-im-minority-acting-business-1761613 Damian Lewis doesn't accept there is a class issue within the acting industry in England.

There has been much criticism in the past 12 months that too many stars of the stage and screen are white, middle-class and privately educated, however, 'Homeland' star Lewis - who was a student at English all-boys boarding school Eton College, whose previous students include Prince William and Prince Harry - insists that's not the case.

In fact, Lewis insists that his background makes him as much of a "minority" as anyone else in the business.

In an interview with The Guardian newspaper, he said: "A handful of actors from privileged backgrounds have done very well and of course that's high-profile news. But wherever I work, as an actor educated at Eton, I'm still always in a minority. What is true and always rewarding about the acting profession is that everyone has a similar story about being in a minority, from whatever background."

According to research by the Sutton Trust more than 42 per cent of all British BAFTA winners went to private schools compared to just 25 per cent who went to comprehensive schools.

'X Men' star James McAvoy spoke to the New Statesman magazine in February this year about his concerns about the "damaging" situation he is seeing with his own eyes.

The Scottish actor said: "That's a frightening world to live in because as soon as you get one tiny pocket of society creating all the arts, or culture starts to become representative not of everybody but of one tiny part. That's not fair to being with, but it's also damaging for society."

However, 'Harry Potter' actor Michael Gambon disagrees with McAvoy's appraisal and believes the more old Etonians and other privately taught actors are in the business the better.

He said: "The more old Etonians the better I think. The two or three who are playing at the moment are geniuses aren't they? The more geniuses you get the better. It's to do with being actors and wanting to do it; it's nothing to do with where they come from."

Gemma Arterton: A Female James Bond Would be Great http://www.gossipcenter.com/gemma-arterton/gemma-arterton-female-james-bond-would-be-great-1273222 Gemma Arterton thinks a female James Bond would be "great".

The 31-year-old actress - who starred alongside Daniel Craig in the 2008 Bond movie 'Quantum of Solace' - has claimed film producer Barbara Broccoli is "one of the biggest feminists in the world" and she can, therefore, envision there being a female 007.

She shared: "Barbara Broccoli is one of the biggest feminists in the world that I know, so I'm sure she would love to do that. Yeah, I mean why not, great."

However, Gemma admitted her own career has moved in a distinctly different direction since she appeared in 'Quantum of Solace'.

The actress said the roles she is offered have changed markedly over the years, especially as she's become more outspoken in her criticism of Hollywood.

She told Sky News: "I'm approached with projects that are much more female-centric because I've spoken out about it so much, which is a good thing.

"But I don't necessarily look for these kind of feminist messages or anything like that, but it's always quite nice when there's a message in there.

"The future projects I have are all kind-of about women that are great, or not great, they're idiotic, or silly, they're just about women so that's a good thing."

By contrast, Gemma was less sure of herself during her first few years in the movie business and her uncertainty led her to accept a series of regrettable jobs.

Gemma - who made her film debut in 'St Trinian's' in 2007 - shared: "I was very young when I started and then a series of events happened to me and I thought, 'Oh no, actually this is what I want to say - and I think that's how it's kind of progressed for me.'"

John Boyega Took Dates to McDonald's http://www.gossipcenter.com/star-wars-episode-vii-force-awakens/john-boyega-took-dates-mcdonalds-1761611 John Boyega used to take his dates to McDonald's.

The 'Star Wars' actor was born and raised in the underprivileged district of Peckham in South London and John has admitted to taking his love interests on dates to the fast-food restaurant as a young man.

He shared: "If you were getting the premium dating package back then you were getting taken to Peckham McDonald's and the cinema across the street. Done. That was all I could afford."

Since appearing in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens', John has become one of the most sought-after names in Hollywood, and yet he has managed to remain tight-lipped about his own private life.

Asked if he's currently single, he told the ES Magazine: "I'm good. I've had various people try to find out [my status] but you'll have to run really fast to try and catch out a Peckham boy when it comes to what he's up to."

John also insisted he's not been defined by the area where he was raised, pointing to numerous success stories of people from the London district.

He explained: "I had an experience of quality art within Peckham. There are diverse spirits in that area who have different talents. I know a pilot from Peckham, I know a guy who deals in luxury cars and started his business in Peckham. Just because you're in the area doesn't mean you have to carry all the circumstances that come with it."

Meanwhile, John recently blasted Samuel L. Jackson for creating "conflict" between black British and African American actors.

The 25-year-old star criticized the Hollywood legend for saying black men from the UK should not play roles about the racial struggles faced by African Americans.

John tweeted: "Black brits vs African American. A stupid ass conflict we don't have time for. (sic)"

Kris Jenner: Caitlyn Jenner's Book Is 'All Made Up' http://www.gossipcenter.com/kris-jenner/kris-jenner-caitlyn-jenners-book-all-made-1761610 Kris Jenner has branded Caitlyn Jenner's book as "all made up".

The 61-year-old reality star came under fire when her ex-husband - who was formerly known as Bruce Jenner before undergoing gender reassignment - penned her forthcoming memoir 'The Secrets of My Life', which includes details of their relationship, and has now claimed Caitlyn's view of their marriage is false.

After reading an advanced copy of the book, Kris claimed in a preview clip for Sunday's (23.04.17) episode of 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians': "I read it and basically the only nice thing she had to say was that I was great socially at a party one time.

"None of it makes sense. Everything she says is all made up. Why does everything have to be that Kris is such a bitch and an a**hole?"

The book reportedly claims Kris "knew" about Caitlyn's struggle with her identity before their relationship became physical, but Kris claims she was told she wouldn't understand when she asked about the subject.

Kris added: "I was curious and said, 'What the hell is going on?' She said, 'You just would never understand.' And then, all through the book, Kris knew. 'Kris knew before I even made love to her.' I'm like, 'What?'"

And Kris also slammed Caitlyn, 67, for not "giving a s**t", and said she was "angry and disappointed" with the 'I Am Cait' star.

She said: "I really tried hard to improve the relationship and spend a little bit of time, thinking maybe there's something here that I'm not seeing. I've done nothing but open up my home and my heart to a person who doesn't give a s--t. So, I'm done. I've never been so angry and disappointed in somebody in my whole life."

Meanwhile, a recently released excerpt from Caitlyn's memoir claims that the star - who was married to Kris for 24 years before their divorce in 2015 - wasn't "comfortable" having sex with her spouse.

Caitlyn wrote: "We fall in love quickly (we marry after seven months). Since - let's not kid ourselves - everyone wants to know, Kris and I have good and frequent sex at the beginning ... [It was] imbued with love ... My attitude is no different than it was in high school: I'm just not entirely comfortable with it."

Serena Williams Is Pregnant http://www.gossipcenter.com/serena-williams/serena-williams-pregnant-1761609 Serena Williams is pregnant.

The 35-year-old tennis player announced she and fiance Alexis Ohanian are expecting their first child together by showing off her growing baby bump in a bright yellow bathing suit on Snapchat on Wednesday (04.19.17).

Serena suggested she is well into her second trimester as she captioned the post "20 weeks".

Serena hasn't appeared on court since defeating her sister Venus in the Australian Open final in January, as she has pulled out of a number of tournaments this year.

The news comes just a few months after the couple announced in December they are getting married.

The sporting icon announced she and the Reddit co-founder were to tie the knot after just over a year of dating with a poem posted on her verified Reddit account.

She wrote: "I came home. A little late. Someone had a bag packed for me. And a carriage waited. Destination: Rome. To escort me to my very own 'charming.' Back to where our stars first collided. And now it was full circle. At the same table we first met by chance. But by choice. Down on knee. He said 4 words. And I said yes."

Selena previously revealed she wants to have children "some day" but still feels like she is too young.

She explained: "I definitely want to have kids one day. That's something I've always wanted since as long as I could remember. And the older I get, the more I'm like, 'I'm too young!'"

And speaking about her legacy, she said: "I never thought about leaving a tennis legacy. I always thought about leaving a legacy of fulfillment, living out your dreams, and giving back. I'm proud to have opened [two] schools in Africa and one in Jamaica [through the Serena Williams Fund and its partners]. I was given a lot. I was given two parents. That's already starting above a lot of kids. And then I was given the opportunity to play tennis and parents who supported that. I feel I can give back."

Caitlyn Jenner Caught on Kids' Camera Before Transition http://www.gossipcenter.com/bruce-jenner/caitlyn-jenner-caught-kids-camera-transition-1273218 Kendall and Kylie Jenner caught their father secretly dressed as a woman when they were trying to spy on one another.

Caitlyn Jenner, who was known as Bruce before she transitioned in 2015, previously went to great lengths to hide her fondness for female attire from the rest of her family, and kept a small selection of feminine garments in the back of her locked closet.

When wife Kris Jenner and their family were out, the former Olympian would dress in her secret clothes, but things went wrong one evening.

In an extract from her new memoir, 'The Secrets of My Life', published in People magazine, she recalled: "With everyone out of the house I dressed up.

"I went into Kylie's room to check myself out because it had a full-length mirror."

But Caitlyn didn't realise Kylie and Kendall had set their computer camera on in an attempt by one sister to catch the other stealing clothing from them, and it inadvertently recorded her checking herself out.

"Mercifully", the 'I Am Cait' star was relieved to find her daughters didn't really understand what they'd seen.

She added: "Later that night I heard them running to their mother yelling, 'Oh my God, what's on the computer screen?!'

"They were mercifully too young to understand."

Meanwhile, Kendall recently recalled how she inadvertently stumbled across her father wearing women's clothes in the middle of the night when she wanted a glass of water.

Recalling what happened, she said: "My heart dropped. That's when she would dress as herself, at four in the morning, before we would get up. So that was like, 'Whoa,' for a second."

And the 21-year-old model admits there were times when she thought her father was cheating on Kris because of the level of secrecy.

She added: "It was like an investigation for a really long time. We would find little things and think, 'This isn't normal.' For a minute, we were like, 'OK, is he cheating?' And then we'd say, 'I don't think so.'"
