The latest celebrity gossip from the Press Association’s showbiz reporters
JENNIFER LAWRENCE has apologised for getting so caught up in the excitement of winning an Oscar that she forgot to thank some important people.
The 22-year-old scooped the best actress gong for her portrayal of a young widow in Silver Linings Playbook, and has now confessed that she was so caught up in the moment that she neglected to mention director DAVID O RUSSELL and producer HARVEY WEINSTEIN.
She told Entertainment Weekly the day after the ceremony: “In the whirlwind of last night, I was remiss to thank two incredibly important people to this film and in my life.”
She went on to thank David for his “genius” and “teaching me things about myself and nurturing me to be a better actor”.
JUSTIN BIEBER has unveiled a new tattoo on his arm.
The As Long As You Love Me singer - who already has a collection of etchings on his body - has been snapped sporting a new inking of what appears to be an X or a cross.
The teen’s latest tattoo sits underneath the owl he already sports on his left arm.
Justin, 18, is a big fan of body art and has several tattoos including the logo for his hometown’s hockey team on his left shoulder blade, a rose on his leg and a crown on his chest.
ANNE HATHAWAY has confessed she is hurt by people’s criticism of her awards acceptance speeches.
The Les Miserables actress has been collecting gongs for her portrayal of Fantine but has faced a backlash online, with people mocking her earnest speeches.
“It does get to me,” Anne was quoted as saying by Us Weekly. “But you have to remember in life that there’s a positive to every negative and a negative to every positive.”
NICHOLAS HOULT has revealed the success of his film Warm Bodies came as a surprise to him.
The About A Boy star plays a zombie whose love for a human redeems him in the movie, which hit the top spot in the US.
Nicholas told Collider: “Yeah, it was a very pleasant surprise.
“Obviously I loved the script and the character and really enjoyed making the film and thought that everyone involved was very talented, but it’s a big relief when something comes out and people seem to like it and go and see and it does well.”
WILL FERRELL is going to be honoured at this year’s MTV Movie Awards.
The Anchorman star will pick-up the inaugural Comedic Genius gong.
“Will Ferrell epitomises what it means to be a comedic genius and it’s only fitting that he should be the inaugural recipient of this award,” said Stephen Friedman, MTV president.
“Over the course of his extraordinary, 17-plus-year career, he has entertained audiences across the globe with an impressive array of laugh-out-loud performances on air, online and in films. Simply put, Will Ferrell is ‘kind of a big deal’.”
EastEnders star DANIELLE HAROLD has said her acting debut was even more terrifying because of the hardman she shares many of her scenes with.
Danielle plays teenage mum Lola Pearce in the BBC One soap and has ended up sharing a lot of screen time with Phil Mitchell, played by STEVE MCFADDEN.
The actress, who joined the soap in 2011 after appearing on Channel 4 reality show Jamie’s Dream School, told the Radio Times online: “At first, every time I did a scene with Steve, I couldn’t remember my lines or I’d just flap.
“But now I’ve got to know him as a person and he scares me a little less - which I don’t think he likes!”
