Fluff: New 50 Shades male lead cast.

Irish actor Jamie Dornan is in final talks to play the billionaire BDSM enthusiast Christian Grey in the adaptation of EL James’ best-seller Fifty Shades of Grey.

Dornan is set to play the lead after Charlie Hunnam dropped out of the film (the probably R-Rated film).

According to Variety magazine Dornan has been “tapped to replace Charlie Hunnam in the Universal and Focus adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.

Who is Jamie Dornan you say?

He is known for playing Sheriff Graham Humbert in Once Upon a Time and Axel von Fersen in Sofia Coppola’s film Marie Antoinette, and if that means nothing to you he also dated Keira Knightley.

Oh and he’s also a former Calvin Klein underwear model, we thought it was imperative not to leave out this fact.

While we wait for confirmation from the 31-year-old actor himself, here’s a gallery of men who we think should play Christian Grey:

The Gwyneth/Vanity Fair saga continues, this time it’s Elle McPherson’s husband Jeffrey Soffer who has spoken out about the cheating rumours.

Soffer issued a statement to New York Post’s Page Six: “Any reports that the relationship between Gwyneth and I is anything other than a friendship are wholly untrue. Gwyneth and her family are longtime friends of Elle and I and she was one of many esteemed guests I hosted for the reopening of the Fontainebleau Miami Beach in 2008.”

Reports surfaced in June that Paltrow emailed friends telling them not to speak to Vanity Fair, which were working on a (potentially) unflattering story about her.

“If you are asked for quotes or comments, please decline,”Paltrow wrote.

VF editor in chief Graydon Carter this week told The Times of London, “We have a very good writer and it’ll run.”

The article is said to focus on not only Paltrow’s friendship with Soffer, but also the creation of her Goop empire, her celebrity friendships, and her falling out with Madonna.

We’ll wait with baited breath.

Darren Hayes apologies to Katy Perry over Sunday night interview.

Australian singer-songwriter Darren Hayes has apologised to Katy Perry over the ‘gotcha’ journalism the American singer faced during an interview with Jackie Frank for Channel Seven’s Sunday night program.

“There is a tone, and a quite nasty one, to the piece that sadly has come to epitomise mainstream Australian media that I must presume is only obvious to those who don’t live there.  It is, quite literally, bullying.  Yet it presents itself as the victim,” he wrote on his Tumblr page.

“It’s a seductive and insincere friendly pat on the proverbial couch to sit down and have a lovely cuppa and an honest chat.  But there’s a knife just behind the cushion and it’s waiting to come out.  It’s almost like a sort of a sticky flytrap – sweet and inviting but ultimately an ambush.

Hayes says he believes Frank wasn’t responsible for the tone of the interview, it was the producers and network that decided it “would run like a tabloid piece.”

“In Australia the media gets to say ‘Ooh Katy Perry is a bitch!’

“From an outsider’s point of view?  It just makes Australian media look mean and it casts opinions about our country that I don’t think are or should be true.

“We’re better than this.  Sorry Katy.”

Jennifer Lopez: “There’s nothing wrong with me or my shape.”

In an interview with Cosmopolitan magazine, Jennifer Lopez reveals it’s her strong family connection that has given her confidence.

“When I first started on television, people, and even my own manager at the time, would tell me I had to make all of these changes,” Lopez says.

“But you have to stand up and say, ‘There’s nothing wrong with me or my shape or who I am, you’re the one with the problem! And when you can really believe that, all of a sudden other people start believing too.'”

‘Jenny from the block’ adds that growing up in the Bronx, New York, she was used to seeing women with a similar body type.

“Early on, my family really made me love who I was and what I looked like. My body was nothing out of the ordinary in my neighbourhood.”

And there is STILL NOTHING WRONG WITH IT.

Okay, rant over.
