1. Meghan Markle was pressured to lie about her age.
Well, this is ridiculous.
Meghan Markle was forced to lie about her age to land acting jobs when she was… 30.
Yep, you read right. THIRTY.
According to The Sun, the royal-to-be once said agents wanted her to tell porkies about her age once she hit 30 because they thought producers would instantly reject her on based on her, erm, geriatric status.
“I’m always told, ‘Don’t say your age’. I’m 33 and I’m really comfortable with that. I think if anyone has a problem then it’s their problem, not mine.
Listen: Meghan Markle’s Christmas is about to get very interesting. Post continues after audio.
“I think in television, you are seeing a shift of women who are not in their 20s who play strong women.”
To add to the general ridiculousness, a producer once asked her to buy a cheesecake for an audition when she only had $20 in her bank account.
“And I was like, ‘I’m sorry?’. So I spent my last money on this cheesecake and I didn’t get the part.
“But, there are these power-hungry people that take advantage when you are young and impressionable and want it so badly.
“Maybe he can send me some cheesecake now!”
2. The Block’s Elyse Knowles is not happy with reports about her ‘surprise wedding’.
Oh… this is awkward.
A magazine (*cough* New Idea *cough*) ran a story saying The Block’s Elyse Knowles will soon be married to her partner Josh Barker.
Which is all well and good except… Knowles and Barker aren’t even engaged yet and the magazine has kind of stolen their thunder.
“We wouldn’t be surprised if there’s an announcement in the next few weeks,” New Idea quotes the source as saying.
