New mom:Slick Woods reveals she was in labour as she walked down the runway for Rihanna

Slic Woods has revealed she was suffering from contractions as she walked the runway for popstar Rihanna’s show.

Sharing a picture of herself wearing the pop star’s new Savage x Fenty underwear range, Slick wrote: ‘This is the face of a WOMAN IN LABOR, we hold s**t down most of us don’t even know how much we’re going through.

‘I’m here to say I CAN DO WHATEVER THE F*** I WANT WHENEVER THE F*** I WANT AND SO CAN YOU.’

Good timing: Woods went into labor as soon as she stepped off Rihanna’s Fenty runway in NYC on Wednesday evening, according to TMZ

Rihanna asked her muse to model for her lingerie collection after declaring she wants to empower women through her designs.

‘Women should be wearing lingerie for their d**n selves,’ Rihanna told Vogue in an interview. ‘I can only hope to encourage confidence and strength by showing lingerie in another light. You don’t have to stick to one personality with lingerie; it’s fun to play around.

‘You can be cute and playful one week and a black widow next week. You can take risks with lingerie. I want people to wear Savage x Fenty and think, ‘I’m a bad b****. I want women to own their beauty.’

Accessories: Slick also rocked glitter-adorned stockings for her catwalk strut

Slick, real name Simone Thompson, revealed she was pregnant with her first child two months ago.

Taking to Instagram, the star was seen sitting on the edge of a pool while flaunting her baby bump.

‘I see myself changing the world,’ she continued.

Series abdication: Her beach outing came following the news that her TV series The Royals has been cancelled by the E! network after four seasons

Elizabeth’s beach outing came following the news that her TV show The Royals – in which she portrayed Queen Helena Henstridge – has been axed by the E! network after four seasons.

‘E! will not be moving forward with another season of The Royals, which launched in 2015 as the network’s first original scripted series,’ the network said in a statement provided on Thursday to Deadline.

‘Over four seasons, The Royals took viewers behind the palace gates on a scandalous journey filled with twists and turns. We are grateful to the cast and our producing partners at Lionsgate and Universal Cable Productions.’

It is believed producing studio Lionsgate TV has been in talks with sister cable network Pop, a co-venture between Lionsgate and CBS, about a potential fifth season.

The Royals creator and showrunner Mark Schwahn, 52, was fired in December following allegations of sexual misconduct from multiple women.

25 women from The Royals and 18 women from his former show One Tree Hill accused Schwahn of repeated unwanted sexual harassment.

Schwahn was fired after season four completed production and the show’s last episode, which he wrote and directed, aired on May 13.

The creator: Mark Schwahn, shown in November 2015, was fired last December as showrunner of The Royals following multiple allegations of sexual harassment

Last year, Sophia Bush, Hilarie Burton and a number of female members of the One Tree Hill cast released a statement describing his alleged harassment.

Part of their lengthy open letter read: ‘All of the female cast members of One Tree Hill have chosen this forum to stand together in support of Audrey Wauchope and one another.

‘To use terminology that has become familiar as thesystemic reality of sexual harassment and assault has come more and more to light, Mark Schwahn’s behaviour over the duration of the filming of One Tree Hill was something of an ‘open secret.’

‘Many of us were, to varying degrees, manipulated psychologically and emotionally. More than one of us is still in treatment for post-traumatic stress.

‘Many of us were put in uncomfortable positions and had to swiftly learn to fight back, sometimes physically, because it was made clear to us that the supervisors in the room were not the protectors they were supposed to be.

New palace: Lionsgate TV tweeted that it was looking for a ‘new palace’ for The Royals

Royal drama: Manpreet Bachu as Ashok, Ukweli Roach as Marcus, Merritt Patterson as Ophelia, William Moseley as Prince Liam, Lydia Rose Bewley as Penelope, Jake Maskall as Cyrus, Sophie Colquhoun as Gemma, Hatty Preston as Maribel, Elizabeth Hurley as Queen Helena, Oliver Milburn as Ted, Vincent Regan as King Simon, Alexandra Park as Princess Eleanor and Tom Austen as Jasper are shown in a season one promo still

‘Many of us were spoken to in ways that ran the spectrum from deeply upsetting, to traumatising, to downright illegal.

‘And a few of us were put in positions where we felt physically unsafe. More than one woman on our show had her career trajectory threatened.’

The Royals started as a loose adaptation of the Michelle Ray novel Falling For Hamlet and each episode was named from a line of dialogue from William Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

The series followed a fictional contemporary British royal family.

The studio has been using the UK royal family as inspiration and had been searching for a new showrunner amid new interest following the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

LionsGate TV took to Twitter to confirm they were searching for a spot for season five.

‘#Loyals, thank you so much for your undying loyalty. We’re hard at work trying to find a new palace for this monarchy! Keep tweeting #LongLiveTheRoyals,’ the TV provider tweeted.

Good times: William, Elizabeth, Mark, Alexandra and Tom are shown in November 2015 promoting season two of The Royals

Marilyn Monroe’s long lost nude scene has been uncovered more than half a century after she stripped off for 1961 feature The Misfits (Pictured, Ms Monroe and co-star Clark Gable)

  • Marilyn Monroe filmed the long lost love scene with Clark Gable for the 1961 film
  • The footage would have marked the first nude scene by an American actress
  • It was uncovered in the locked cabinet of Curtice Taylor, the son of the producer

When Marilyn Monroe filmed a love scene with Clark Gable in The Misfits, she dropped the bed-sheet and exposed her body in what would have been the first nude scene by an American actress in a feature film.

But director John Huston refused to include it, insisting on a retake, and the risqué footage was thought to have been destroyed.

Now, more than half a century later, the author of a forthcoming Monroe biography has discovered that it has survived.

Charles Casillo interviewed Curtice Taylor, son of the film’s producer Frank Taylor, and was taken aback to learn that he has kept the footage in a locked cabinet since his father’s death in 1999.

Mr Taylor said: ‘A lot of times, unused takes were destroyed. But Frank Taylor believed that it was so important and so ground-breaking that he saved it.’

The Misfits, filmed in 1961 and written by Ms Monroe’s then husband Arthur Miller, tells the story of three cowboys vying for the attention of a beautiful woman.

It was her last completed movie, and she died aged 36 the following year from a sleeping-pills overdose.

Conspiracy theories have persisted ever since, but some 56 years later Ms Monroe remains one of Hollywood’s most iconic stars.

Mr Casillo said that, until now, her only nude scene on film was thought to be in her last, uncompleted movie, Something’s Got to Give.

He said: ‘If you read [The Misfits] script… it doesn’t say anything about nudity… When she did the scene, everyone was shocked on the set.

‘Huston sighed and said, “Honey, I’ve seen them before” Gable and others… wanted [it] to be left in. Huston didn’t… because he felt it… was totally unnecessary to the scene.’

 

The long lost footage was discovered in the locked cabinet of Curtice Taylor (pictured top left), son of The Misfit’s producer Frank Taylor

The footage, with sound, lasts about 45 seconds. Curtice Taylor, a photographer and teacher, understands why his father was so keen to include it: ‘It’s much more passionate.’

At that time, there were censorship restrictions over screen characters being seen in bed together.

He said: ‘So Gable’s fully clothed. He comes into her bedroom. She’s asleep. He caresses and kisses her neck, turns her face around and gives her a good lip-lock.

‘That exists in the scene in the [final] film – but not to the passionate degree of this one, which is much better.

‘The smile on her face when he’s kissing her shoulder is just sublime.’

The discovery of the footage is featured in Charles Casillo’s upcoming The Private Life of a Public Icon, to be published August 14

After Gable leaves the room, Ms Monroe holds up the sheet to put on her blouse.

Mr Taylor believes that she dropped it partly due to her training as a method actress.

He said: ‘Why would a woman sitting up in bed, with nobody in the room, pull the sheet up and then try to put a blouse on at the same time? It makes no sense.

‘So she just drops the sheet. I think it’s one of the reasons she did this. There are quite a few takes of this scene.

‘Whenever she dropped the sheet, which she did a few times, Huston would say “Cut, remember the sheet, Marilyn”.’

Mr Taylor was surprised that the footage is an edited sequence, and wonders whether the censors had insisted on its removal.

He attended the shoot at just 13-years-old, and said he remembers Ms Monroe talking to him and asking him to do ‘little favours’.

He said: ‘She’d give me $5 to go get something.’

Quite what he will do with the material is yet to be decided.

The Misfits also marked the end of Ms Monroe’s marriage.

In his book, Mr Casillo describes how when Monroe was dependent on pills during the shoot, and was hoping to continue an affair with actor Yves Montand.

He said: ‘The marriage in which she had put so much hope was over. To make matters worse, most of the shooting would take place during the summer months in the scorching Nevada desert.

‘The Millers took a [hotel] suite together, but it soon became apparent that their union was anything but harmonious. Their violent arguments could be heard through the walls.’

The discovery of The Misfits footage is featured in Mr Casillo’s Marilyn Monroe: The Private Life of a Public Icon, to be published by St. Martin’s Press on Tuesday, August 14.

Jet-setters: The couple jetted to Barcelona after enjoying a trip to Cannes

Her display of the glittering band comes after Kelly revealed she proposed to Jeremy during a romantic holiday to Antigua back in February – but he turned her down because he was so embarrassed by her public display of affection.

The beauty took it on the chin, however, confessing during an interview with OK! magazine that the mortified French hunk immediately shut her down.

Kelly said: ‘When we were in Antigua and the sun was setting and we were up at Shirley Heights I said to Jeremy, “Will you marry me?” and he said, “Be quiet there are people around!”

Not the right time: Her display of the glittering band comes after Kelly revealed she proposed to him during a romantic holiday to Antigua back in February but he turned her down

‘So I tried to propose but he said it was too busy and told me to be quiet! I’ve asked him, but it wasn’t private enough!’

Earlier this month, Kelly said she had been subjected to questions about when she was planning to start a family as she nears 40, speaking about enduring the heartbreak of ‘several miscarriages’ on Loose Women.

She said: ‘People always ask – my biological clock is ticking, I’m approaching 40. I have tried to have children, I haven’t been lucky, I’ve had several miscarriages.

Embarrassed: Kelly said: ‘When we were in Antigua and the sun was setting and we were up at Shirley Heights I said to Jeremy, “Will you marry me?” and he said, “Be quiet”‘

‘People feel the need to ask, they don’t think it could be a medical reason you’re not having children.

‘They think I’m a selfish person, I don’t want children, people need to understand and look at why you aren’t having kids. When I’m asked are you going to have kids? I never have the right answer, I never want to go into it, it’s no one’s business.

‘It annoys me when people look at you, they say you don’t have children, you don’t know anything, wait till you have them,. I think that’s a bit mean too.’

Kelly has spoken openly about her previous battles to have a baby. In April 2011 she experienced a painful miscarriage when she was six months pregnant by then boyfriend Thom Evans.

In her autobiography Close Up, she also admitted she had suffered another miscarriage in December 2011.

She has been in a relationship with Italian model Jeremy since April 2015.

Stunning: Paris Hilton, 37, dazzled in a floaty floral gown as she posed up a storm at Hotel ME in Ibiza on Thursday

Paris Hilton posed up a storm when she headed to the Hotel ME in Ibiza on Thursday.

The socialite, 37, looked effortlessly chic in a pretty floral ruffle gown and glittering pink heels as she stood on a balcony in the sunshine.

Statement accessories made her stand out from the crowd as she wore oversized sunglasses and a giant lace choker.

The hotel heiress upped the glamour factor glitzy diamond watch, and of course flashed her giant engagement ring from fiancé Chris Zylka.

Paris styled her signature blonde tresses in sleek curls that cascaded far passed her shoulders .

Paris Hilton was named honorary ambassador by Ibiza Luxury Destination, dependent on Tourism Promotion on the night and was no doubt pleased with the accolade.

The Simple Life star injected another pop of colour with a rosy pink lip as she threw her signature pout towards the cameras.

Her glamorous outing comes after she recently confessed to never having had plastic surgery and credited her flawless complexion with her strict skincare regime.

Opening up during her visit to BeautyCon New York back in April, Paris told People: ‘I’ve never done any Botox, filler — no plastic surgery in my life. I’ve always been obsessed with skincare.’

The star shared some of her favorite skin secrets, explaining how she’s been using luxury creams ‘like Creme De La Mer’ (which retails for around $175 (£133) per one-ounce bottle) since she was only ‘eight years old.’

Her lifelong obsession with potions and products inspired her to create her own Paris Hilton Skincare line.

Making sure her line was the best of the best, Paris spent two years personally testing the product.

‘I’ve been using this for the past two years to make sure [it works],’ she told the publication.

It also seems the starlet’s line has an unlikely fan in her actor beau Chris.

Though the The Leftovers actor told his love he ‘never even put on moisturizer’, she says ‘he loves it’ now.

‘He loves it. He is like, “I never even put moisturizer on in my life.” He had no idea about it but now every night before we go to bed I will put the creams on him and he loves it. I give him facials.’

Chris popped the question to Paris in January during a romantic ski trip and are currently planning their nuptials.

Dwayne Johnson

It’s not enough for a star to be a major self-promoter; he must also pick good movies and avoid projects like current flop ‘Skyscraper.’

There was a moment in Skyscraper when I realized the movie had pretty much lost me. It wasn’t the scene in which Dwayne Johnson hurls himself through the slicing-and-dicing propellers of a gigantic wind turbine, just to reach a switch that has been incomprehensibly hidden there. Nor was it the scene in which he flies through the air, hundreds of feet above the ground, then catches a rope and swings Tarzan-like to safety. And it wasn’t the hall-of-mirrors sequence, an ancient movie trope familiar from such classics as Orson Welles’ The Lady from Shanghai, in which the bad guys and the good guys have a shoot-out amid a maze of mirrors that in this instance just happen to be perched on the rooftop of a towering inferno. No, it was the scene when our hero, a former FBI agent and amputee, trying to keep two sliding doors from slamming closed on him, yanks off his prosthetic leg and jams it between them, thereby saving himself while dooming any hope of believability.

Watching the film as it vaulted from one excess to another, I kept thinking of that classic Samuel Goldwyn line: “I want the movie to start with an earthquake and build to a climax.”

But I also thought of some of the stars of old, who would have done anything to avoid such mediocre material. Bette Davis and Olivia de Havilland famously fought with Warner Bros. to be allowed to make good films and were regularly suspended when they demanded better ones. As recently as the 1990s, major actors such as John Travolta and Bruce Willis would agree to one fee for standard studio fare and another for art house pictures that they considered labors of love.

That tradition has all but disappeared. True, there are stars like Jennifer Lawrence who’ll stretch themselves in movies they never expect to be blockbusters (Lawrence went into guns-blasting mode in defense of Mother! after its critical drubbing — and good for her), but they’re the exception to the rule. What we’re seeing these days is stars as brands, larger-than-life performers who don’t so much run away from the unoriginal as hasten toward it.

I understand that. Because these stars aren’t competing with other stars; they’re in a death struggle with even bigger brands, franchises that come laden with products and theme parks and toys. It’s hard enough to be a star in the best of times; it’s almost impossible in an era dominated by transforming cars and metallic superheroes. The only way to do so is to market yourself as relentlessly as you can.

Nobody does that better than Johnson. He’s a master of modern media, as a recent Forbes article pointed out. “On Instagram, where he has more than 108 million followers, he delivers inspirational videos of himself talking directly to his iPhone, often in his traveling gym,” noted the magazine’s Natalie Robehmed. “Other posts — leveraging another 13 million Twitter followers and 58 million on Facebook — introduce movie trailers, show Johnson in development meetings and celebrate his ‘cheat day’ pancake snack, all decorated with multiple hashtags and millions of likes.”

He’s even taken a page from his pal Kevin Hart’s book and begun charging studios for these services. “In addition to hefty $20 million up-front paychecks and cuts of back-end studio profits — starting with July’s Skyscraper, in which he plays a former FBI hostage-rescue leader — he’ll insist on a separate seven-figure social media fee with every movie in which he appears, according to people familiar with his deals,” Robehmed continues. “In other words, rather than have studios dump money into TV ads or billboards, their new paid-marketing channel doubles as their marquee star.”

Thanks to this, Johnson has turned himself into a zillionaire, with a reported income of $124 million last year alone, and he’s done so by understanding the product he’s selling better than anyone else. He’s a tough guy with a heart of gold, a man whose hard surface is matched by his soft core. He conveys the impression of being both ordinary and extraordinary, human and super-human, the kind of person you could have a beer with and not expect him instantly to crush the can. He’s Arnold Schwarzenegger without the accent and, like that maestro of the muscular, he has a great feel for his limits. You won’t find him hurrying to play Hamlet.

If “know thyself” is the golden rule of life, no one knows himself better than Johnson. But knowing yourself is one thing; knowing a great movie is another.

Look at pictures like Rampage, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Baywatch and Central Intelligence. All were apt showcases for Johnson’s endearing personality, but none was the sort of thing people talk about for years. San Andreas at least delivered the over-the-top thrills people paid to see, but only Johnson’s efforts as part of the Fast and the Furious ensemble are a serious cut above run-of-the-mill. Given the pace at which Johnson makes movies (not to mention TV), it’s amazing they’re as solid as they are. But films like these are hardly a recipe for longevity.

Quality, not quantity, is the best guarantee if a star plans to stick around. Johnson may be shrewd enough to know stars have short shelf lives, even shorter than some other branded products; but if he hopes of outlasting the ephemeral, it won’t be by making middling movies.

The greatest of the stars all understood this and worked passionately to lift themselves above studio material. Think of Paul Newman and you think of HudButch Cassidy and the Sundance KidThe Hustler and a host of other classics. Think of Gregory Peck and there’s To Kill a Mockingbird and Roman Holiday. Think of John Wayne and you have Stagecoach and Red River and True Grit.

Each of them knew that only quality stands the test of time. True, they made clunkers; but they strove for better and sometimes achieved best.

Brands aren’t like that. They’re based on the premise of returning us over and over again to the same experience, with only the mildest of variations. We turn to brands for safety and comfort; but we want a splash of danger in our stars.

Great brands may deliver theme parks and rollercoaster rides and a ton of products that can be licensed and marketed. They may deliver tried and tested materials that we’re willing to consume year in, year out. But there’s one thing they don’t deliver: great films.
