Harry Styles will be appearing once more on the movie screens with his upcoming project “Don’t Worry Darling” with Florence Pugh.

The former One Directioner member Harry Styles has roped one more new project in his freshly new acting career. The singer and former boy band-er is making his grand re-entrance to the silver screen with Olivia Wilde’s next directional project, Don’t Worry Darling.

Harry’s last project was Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk three years ago, where his performance earned favorable reviews from fans and critics alike. His return to Hollywood is marked by an already star-studded cast including Florence Pugh, Chris Pine, and Dakota Johnson. Harry will be replacing Shia LaBeouf, who dropped out of the project due to scheduling conflict.

Styles would join Florence Pugh and Chris Pine who signed on earlier this year. Wilde has a key supporting role onscreen.

Although little is known about the movie’s plot, Don’t Worry, Darling is set in an isolated, utopian community in the 1950s California desert. Katie Silberman wrote the screenplay based on a spec script by Shane and Carey Van Dyke.

Harry will play her “picture perfect” husband, who “loves her dearly, but is hiding a dark secret from her.”

 

Don’t Worry Darling is slated to start production in the fall, though no information has been made public regarding a release date. Either way, the film is already earning massive buzz and looking to be one of the most highly anticipated titles for whenever people can go see movies again.

Catherine Hardwicke is executive producing the film alongside Shane and Carey Van Dyke. Wilde and Silberman will produce along with Roy Lee and Miri Yoon of Vertigo Entertainment. Richard Brener, Daria Cercek, and Celia Khong will oversee the project for New Line.

While Styles’ attachment to anything draws appeal to the project, insiders say Warner Bros execs have always been looking for that next thing after being blown away by his acting chops in Dunkirk. Sources add after impressing Wilde and Pugh during an initial meeting, the feeling was mutual to get Styles to sign on to the project.

‘Real Housewives of New York City’ Star Leah McSweeney Reveals She Got a Nose Job

New season, new nose? Leah McSweeney revealed she is currently recovering from a rhinoplasty.

“People are DMing me like crazy inquiring why I have black eyes and asking if I got a nose job, asking if I got beat up … I am not trying to hide anything from anybody. I got a rhinoplasty and a septoplasty. I could not be happier,” the 38-year-old Real Housewives of New York City star told her followers via Instagram Stories on Sunday, September 20. “I’ve been wanting one for so freaking long and now I can also breathe, which is great.”

McSweeney went on to shout-out her surgeon. “I love my doctor. He’s a great guy,” the fashion designer, who had a bandage on her nose and dark circles under her eyes, said. “He’s an amazing doctor, his name is Dr. Daniel Maman.”

She concluded: “And I’m just never going to be one of those bitches that pretends like, ‘It’s not work, it’s contour makeup’ because that’s f—king weird.”

Bravo viewers met the Married to the Mob CEO on season 12 of RHONY, which concludes with the final part of the reunion on Thursday, September 24. During a July episode of the series, McSweeney got candid about past — and future — plastic surgery procedures.

“I will get my titties done. I will get my p–sy done. I will get my whole face done if I want to,” she told her sister, Sarah. “I have only gotten Botox and my lips done.”

Earlier this month, TMZ reported that McSweeney had yet to sign on for season 13 as she was struggling to come to an agreement with the network for her new contract.

McSweeney previously expressed interest in returning for a second season while chatting with Page Six about the future of the franchise.

“I hope that there’s not only diversity of race but an even deeper diversity of where someone lives or what their interests are,” she said in August. “I hope that there’s just more diversity all across the board because New Yorkers are not a monolith, obviously. I think that it is gonna head in that direction.”

Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan and Luann de Lesseps are all expected to return for season 13 of RHONY, which is set to start filming this fall. Dorinda Medley announced her exit last month.

Pic! Kaia Gerber & Jacob Elordi Vacation with Her Family in Mexico

It looks like Kaia Gerber and Jacob Elordi has reached a new milestone in their budding relationship — vacationing with the parents!

Over the weekend, Kaia and Jacob were photographed on a weekend getaway with her parents Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber in Los Cabos, Mexico.

While Jacob went shirtless in gray swim trunks, Kaia showed off her hot body in a green bikini.

A source told E! about their vacay, “[They] have been hanging out at a beach club, where they were holding hands and making out. They look very happy together, always smiling and pulling each other in close. They seem very into each other and are having a good time.”

“He is never not by her side and holding her close,” the insider went on about their PDA-filled pool session, “Kaia and Jacob swam to a corner of the pool and wrapped their arms around each other and kissed. They are comfortable around Cindy and Rande, too and are not shy about showing affection.”

Cindy and Rande seem to approve of Jacob and Kaia’s relationship. The source claimed, “They have been having dinner together and always end up laughing. The four of them hang out, but they also spend time as couples alone.”

The vacation comes just weeks after the two were seen holding hands several times in New York City.

Earlier this month, Kaia and Jacob sparked rumors after they were seen having dinner at Nobu in Malibu. Another insider revealed to the outlet, “Jacob definitely has interest in dating Kaia, but there is nothing serious going on there. They have many mutual friends and have hung out many times in the past. They both have very chill personalities and similar interests. Jacob makes Kaia laugh and her family adores him.”

Elordi hasn’t addressed the dating rumors, but stressed that he is a “human being.” Stressing how much he misses his family who reside in Australia, he recently wrote on his Instagram Story, “They live in a space of constant anxiety when I am away from them, as do I in the reverse… If you find it difficult to make your way through the day, I get it, life is heavy. I implore you when you feel like this to try a little kindness, pay it forward and I promise it will find its way back to you.”

Jacob was last linked to his “Euphoria” co-star Zendaya, who he was seen kissing on the head in February. At the time, a source shared, “They were showing each other things on their phones and laughing. She seemed to be really enjoy being with him. At one point he reached over and kissed her on the forehead. She had a big smile on her face and was very comfortable with them.”

The 2020 Emmys Were a Comforting Dose of Normalcy at a Scarily Abnormal Time

Published

on

By

The 2020 Emmys had to be different. Such is, of course, the reality for all awards shows right now. But the TV Academy’s annual self-congratulations ritual was begging for a revamp long before COVID-19 hit. Without a host to personalize the ceremony, the downbeat 2019 telecast drew just 6.9 million viewers—a 32% decline over the previous year. Another drop of that magnitude, and it might be hard to justify devoting three hours of Sunday-night airtime to a glorified industry event.

Hopefully, it won’t come to that. Because despite the unprecedented challenge—or, perhaps more accurately, because of it—this year’s Emmys turned out to be one of the most enjoyable awards shows in recent memory. That success wasn’t necessarily the result of any one big decision on the producers’ part. But many of the details worked well, from H.E.R.’s lovely rendition of “Nothing Compares 2 U” during the In Memoriam montage, to Jennifer Aniston frantically extinguishing a trash fire as part of a gag about sanitizing award envelopes—and then reappearing two hours later flanked by her Friends co-stars Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow. Bits by genuinely funny people like David Letterman (“Regis, I checked; you’re in the montage, buddy”) and Anthony Carrigan as Barry’s NoHo Hank (himself flimsily disguised as a U.S. postal worker) earned their laughs. Inviting essential workers to present a handful of awards could’ve come off as patronizing, but the show avoided schmaltz by actually letting them share their experiences. And clips of luminaries like America Ferrera and Lena Waithe speaking candidly on their early encounters with Hollywood was a welcome alternative to the usual guilty jokes about the industry’s racism and sexism from the obligatory white-guy host.

Speaking of which: Jimmy Kimmel wasn’t an extraordinary host by any means, but he was certainly better than nothing. (If that seems like faint praise, it’s a whole lot more than I can say for Ricky Gervais at the Golden Globes this past January.) His mere presence throughout the evening brought much-needed consistency and enthusiasm to a telecast that, due to its far-flung nominees, could’ve felt scattered or low-energy. In fact, there was something kind of comforting about the very averageness of “Pandemmys” jokes aimed at easy targets like anti-maskers and Quibi (which Kimmel rightly identified as “the dumbest thing to ever cost a billion dollars.”) I mean, what feels more normal than an awards-show host doing just OK?

Really, though, it was the winners who made the 2020 Emmy Awards special. It’s always heartening to see some of the best nominees take home trophies (or have the trophies delivered to their homes via interns driving Kias, as the case may be), particularly after the farce that was the Game of Thrones‘ atrocious final season winning top honors last year. And while there weren’t too many surprises on Sunday, Zendaya’s richly deserved Lead Actress in a Drama upset livened up the proceedings nicely.

As for the favorites that dominated the night—Schitt’s Creek in the comedy-series category, Succession in drama and Watchmen in limited series—each one fulfilled some vital function for Americans toughing out this pandemic year from our couches. And the acceptance speeches reflected how thoroughly the casts and crews understood what we were getting out of their work. Along with his gratitude, Succession creator Jesse Armstrong underscored his dramedy’s cathartic lampooning of the super-rich and mega-destructive with a torrent of “un-thank-yous” to Donald Trump, Boris Johnson and nationalist leaders around the world.

Watchmen honorees from Regina King to creator Damon Lindelof and writer Cord Jefferson leaned on the series’ most political moments, such as its wrenching depiction of the 1921 Black Wall Street Massacre in Tulsa, and urged viewers to take advantage of voting tools like Ballotpedia. I was especially moved by Supporting Actor in a Limited Series winner Yahya Abdul-Mateen‘s speech, in which he acknowledged that Watchmen was a story about white domestic terrorism and inherited trauma, before pointing out that “it was also about a god who came down to earth to reciprocate to a Black woman all the love that she deserved. He’d offer her sacrifice and support, passion, protection. And he did all of this in the body of a Black man.” Abdul-Mateen continued, “I’m so proud I was able to walk into those shoes.” He dedicated his Emmy to the Black women in his life.

Nothing captured our collective thirst for comfort, positivity and familial togetherness more than the Schitt’s Creek sweep, which had the show’s major players—gathered in masks and formalwear at a small, socially distanced party—accepting seven straight awards. The Canadian ensemble was humble as always, giving generous shout-outs to each other and fellow nominees they admired, such as Issa Rae. “The internet’s about to turn on me,” Daniel Levy, who co-created the comedy with his father and fellow Emmy winner Eugene Levy, joked after his third time at the mic. “I’m so sorry for making this political, but I had to.” Even when they kept their masks on, you could tell how thrilled the members of the fictional Rose family were for each other. (“I can’t believe that Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara are my friends!” exclaimed their TV daughter, Annie Murphy.) Maybe it got a little old hearing them reiterate that the show was a celebration of kindness and inclusivity, but those values could not have been more refreshing at a time characterized by isolation, anger and mourning. For a few minutes on Sunday evening, it was possible for millions of struggling people across the country to imagine ourselves as honorary Roses—punched in the gut by life but united by human decency and capable of finding their way back to something like normalcy, together.
