1. Margot Robbie masters the art of the little white lie.
Australian actress Margot Robbie has come a long way from her days on Ramsay Street.
The 23-year-old is currently on the press tour for her new film, The Wolf of Wall Street, a talkie directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, in which Robbie has a nude scene.
Like we said; it’s a long way from Ramsay Street.
So, it’s not surprising that Robbie was a little worried about how her family in rural Queensland would react to the whole ‘nude’ thing. She said on Jimmy Kimmel Live!:
That was a small point of contention with my family. I just flat out lied to my family for a really long time. I said, ‘I don’t care what you hear, there is no nudity, I’m not doing any nudity. Ignore anything anyone’s saying, there is no nudity’.
And then I thought: ‘Well, the movie’s going to come out and they’ll see there’s nudity.’ So I changed that. The lie evolved to: ‘Well actually it’s a body double, and they just CGI-ed my head onto someone else.’
My family don’t have anything to do with the entertainment industry so they totally bought it. They were like, ‘They can do that?’ And I was like, ‘Oh, technology these days, you wouldn’t believe what they do in Hollywood.’
Alas, she did eventually have to reveal to her family that the body her head was attached to was, in fact, also hers. You can watch the first part of the interview below:
And, now that you’ve come this far. You should definitely watch the second half of the interview feat. the time Margot ate 1.8kg of spaghetti on the set of Neighbours. As you do:
2. Bravo, Mary-Kate and Ashley!
The Olsen Twins have proven that they are ahead of the fashion pack by using post-pubescent models in the Pre-fall 2014 look book for their fashion label, The Row.
The youngest of the three models is aged 39, the oldest is 65-year-old Linda Rodin.
3. Dear Kelly Osbourne, if Bieber jumped off a cliff…
Some people crochet, others play squash. But, Justin Bieber? He graffitis things. (As the mayor of the Gold Coast can attest to.) And it looks like his penchant for the spray can might have rubbed off on one Kelly Osbourne:
