The Spill: Wednesday's best entertainment and gossip news.

1. ‘I’ve made peace with it.’ The Bachelor’s Laura Byrne posted an honest selfie and mums everywhere are cheering.

When you’re pregnant with a mini human, your body goes through a lot of changes. And, unfortunately, sometimes those things don’t change back after you’ve had the baby.

Which is why The Bachelor‘s Laura Byrne decided to share a photo of her melasma, which has stuck around despite Laura giving birth to her daughter Marlie-Mae earlier this year.

“When I was pregnant I posted a fair bit about my melasma. I’ve always had pigmentation, but pregnancy really set that baby a light (the pigmentation I mean, not the baby…the baby was cooked just right), ” Laura joked in the Instagram post.

“Since having Marlie-Mae I’ve had so many mums message me to ask me how I got rid of it. Well, I didn’t!”

[MELASMA] When I was pregnant I posted a fair bit about my melasma. I’ve always had pigmentation, but pregnancy really set that baby a light (the pigmentation I mean, not the baby…the baby was cooked just right) since having Marlie-Mae I’ve had so many mums message me to ask me how I got rid of it. Well, I didn’t! I hadn’t gotten around to giving an update on it – not because it had miraculously vanished, it just feels a lot less important now that Marlie-Mae is here in the world. I’ve made peace with the fact that these are the markings of making an incredible tiny human. This is just a little reminder that most of the people you follow on Instagram don’t actually have perfect skin, or perfect butts or perfect boobs that defy gravity. If you or someone you love has melasma – I just want you to know you look amazing girlfriend ???????????? #melasma

Laura went on to explain that while she still has melasma, it “feels a lot less important now that Marlie-Mae is here in the world. I’ve made peace with the fact that these are the markings of making an incredible tiny human.”

And mums everywhere are cheering.

“Thanks for being honest and open. You are beautiful inside and out!!! Kids do funny things to Mum bodies but they are worth it,” one person commented.

“To me, this makes you even more beautiful, you are real, you’re a Mum and you are a woman!” commented another.

Zoe Foster Blake, Sogand Mohtat and Helena Sauzier from Matt Agnew’s season of The Bachelor also showed their support, with Helana writing, “So beautiful and what an important message. I get it in summer and it makes me incredibly self-conscious so this message means a lot!”

Laura ended the post with an important message.

“This is just a little reminder that most of the people you follow on Instagram don’t actually have perfect skin, or perfect butts or perfect boobs that defy gravity. If you or someone you love has melasma – I just want you to know you look amazing girlfriend.”

2. “I didn’t really have an understanding of marriage.” Scarlett Johansson just got really candid about her two divorces.

You may have forgotten that back in 2011, famous Hollywood couple Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds got divorced after roughly three years of marriage.

Johansson recently got candid about her divorce from Reynolds and her second husband Romain Dauriac in an interview with Vanity Fair. 

The 35-year-old actress admitted that when she first got married at 23, she “didn’t really have an understanding of marriage.”

“Maybe I kind of romanticised it, I think, in a way. It’s a different part of my life now. I feel like I’m in a place in my life, I feel I’m able to make more active choices. I’m more present, I think, than I’ve been before.”

In 2014 Johansson went on to marry French journalist Romain Dauriac. The pair welcomed their daughter Rose that same year.

“The idea of building a family, making a family, and having that work, I like that idea. I think that would be wonderful. I’ve always wanted that. I wanted that also in my marriage to my daughter’s father as well. It just wasn’t the right person.”

Johansson says her previous divorces helped her relate to her character Nicole in the new movie Marriage Story. 

“I had some kind of shared experience with the character, or with any person going through a divorce, really. I understood the bittersweetness of it somehow, in a way.

"All those kind of in-between feelings that the character has. I understood them because I had gone through them myself.”

Johansson is now engaged to American comedian Colin Jost.

Marriage Story comes out in Australia on Netflix on December 6.

3. "I am sorry William and I am sorry Kate." Camila Cabello admitted she stole from Kensington Palace and the royals hilariously responded.

22-year-old singer, Camilla Cabello, has been outed by BBC Radio host, DJ Greg James, as a thief of Kensington Palace prize jewels.

Well, *cough* a pencil, at least.

When the pair caught up in London, the radio host said, "The last time I saw you, we were at the palace... I was aiding and abetting a criminal, which was you.

"And I said 'you’ve got to steal something, steal that pencil.'"

Cabello added that it was a "triple doggy dare" and "you can’t not do a triple doggy dare."

So the rebel grabbed a pencil and threw it in her mum's purse.

"And my mum was like 'no we have to give it back, we have to give back the pencil.' And I was like 'no, he triple doggy dared me,'" she added.

She finished off the segment by sending an apology to the palace: "So, I still have it, I'm sorry William and I'm sorry Kate."

We're not sure if Cabello expected a response, but she got one.

Will and Kate reminded precisely everyone that they keep up with the goss, responding simply with a watching eyes emoji.

We see you...

4. Oh. Miley Cyrus debuted a new 'mullet' haircut and her fans aren't exactly thrilled.

Miley Cyrus just cut her hair into a "modern mullet" and she - or her hairdresser, more specifically - is being inundated with complaints about it.

PUNK VIBE????????✂️????

A post shared by Sally Hershberger (@sallyhershberger) on

It goes without saying it's Miley's hair, and she can do whatever she pleases with it - and we highly doubt Miley cares what others think of her new 'do.

But Miley's hairstylist, Sally Hershberger certainly had something to say when an upset fan, known as @mileysgem commented on the look.

"This is the worst haircut I’ve ever laid my eyes on u call urself a hairstylist now this is gonna be all over tmz and the news plus the locals that don’t like Miley are gonna think she’s going through a meltdown again why can’t we ever win gonna go cry now bye! That was all," the user posted.

Hershberger clapped back, responding: "First of all if you knew anything about hair it's the position she's in that's why it looks that way, it's 100% even and she also had it straightened so it's more severe which I actually like that being said chill out and know it's a modern mullet which is very cool but it's something you probably aren't even well-versed in sorry but not sorry"

You tell em, Sally.

5. When Michael Hutchence broke up with Kylie Minogue, he got down on the floor and cried.

It was 1989 and the saying “opposites attract” never seemed more fitting.

Kylie Minogue was the 21-year-old Australian sweetheart who had just left Neighbours to pursue a pop music career.

Michael Hutchence was the 29-year-old rockstar – the INXS frontman who exuded sex appeal.

It was far from a predictable romance, yet it seemed inevitable.

The pair first met at the 1987 Countdown Awards. According to The Monthly, Minogue, whose music career had just begun, recalled how “Michael Hutchence made an effort to come over and say hi” at the star-studded event. But other accounts of the evening suggest his approach was more lewd, with the musician loudly claiming he wanted to have sex with Minogue.

It would be over a year before they met again.

In 1989, Minogue, who was in a relationship with her Neighbours co-star Jason Donovan at the time, met Hutchence after an INXS gig.

After Hutchence invited the couple to an after party, the INXS frontman reportedly began flirting with the pop star.

Speaking on A Current Affair in 2014, Minogue shared that their chemistry was instant. When Hutchence approached Minogue, he said: “I don’t know what we should do first, have lunch or have sex”.

“He did ask to kiss me numerous times and I did say no numerous times,” she said.
