Elle Macpherson has hit back at a troll who accused her of ruining her face with cosmetic procedures.

The supermodel recently posted two photos on Instagram of her with “fellow wellness warrior” Dr. Will Cole, and while most of her followers heaped praise on her in the comments, one user took the opportunity to scold Macpherson for allegedly changing her face.

“Whatever your doing to your face STOP IT (sic)! You don’t look like yourself anymore!” they wrote. “Please stop you were beautiful now not so much. smfh (shaking my f**king head).”

The Australian beauty spotted the comment and hit back by insisting that she hasn’t had anything done to her face.

“The only thing I’m doing is ageing gracefully without interference. Sorry if it doesn’t work for your vision of what you think I should look like. I’m me. Healthy happy and nearly 60. Go figure (shrug emoji),” the 55-year-old replied.

Macpherson has repeatedly stated that she hasn’t undergone plastic surgery in press interviews, however, while talking to Britain’s Daily Telegraph in 2016, she admitted she had tried Botox and collagen injections.

“Yeah, I’ve tried things, but most of the time they don’t work for me,” she said. “It doesn’t work for my face – some people get things done and they look worse. I’m a bit of a scaredy-cat and I don’t want to mess with what there is. At this point, I think it’s best to leave what I have alone.

“Having said that, I do vitamin injections, infusions and I work on my nutrition… I’ve learned that a good smile, good teeth, good hair, good skin, a good mood are worth a thousand injectables and Botox and facials and masks.”

Cats receives scathing reviews

Tom Hooper’s film adaptation of Cats has received overwhelmingly negative reviews from critics.

The movie adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s stage musical was subject to ridicule when the trailer first dropped in July, with social media users poking fun at the digital fur technology used to make the actors – including Idris Elba, Jason Derulo, Judi Dench, and Taylor Swift – look more like felines.

Despite Hooper making changes to the film based on the feedback, he didn’t do enough to win over critics, according to reviews published on Thursday morning.

“Nine may not be enough lives for some of the stars to live down their involvement in this poorly conceived and executed adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s hit musical,” read Peter Debruge’s review in Variety. “This uneven eyesore turns out to be every bit the Jellicle catastrophe the haters anticipated, a half-digested hairball of a movie in which Hooper spends too much energy worrying about whether the technology is ready to accommodate his vision and not enough focusing on what millions love about the musical in the first place.”

The Hollywood Reporter’s David Rooney called the actors’ appearance “off-putting”, criticised the film’s “aesthetic ugliness”, and said Jennifer Hudson “massacred” her character Grizabella’s key song, Memory.

Tim Robey from Britain’s Daily Telegraph gave it zero stars and described it as “an all-time disaster – a rare and star-spangled calamity which will leave jaws littered across floors and agents unemployed,” adding, “With its nightmare production design and nauseating lurches in scale and perspective, it might be the ugliest big-screen musical sequence ever mounted.”

Peter Bradshaw from Britain’s The Guardian gave it one star and called it “a purr-fectly dreadful hairball of woe” and Johnny Oleksinski at the New York Post wrote that Hooper had “completely abandoned the fundamentals of what made Cats a terrific show: sublime music, captivating dance and an intoxicating atmosphere.”

Cats opens in cinemas on Friday.

Miranda Kerr has given birth to her third child.

The Australian model and beauty entrepreneur announced in March that she and her Snapchat co-founder husband Evan Spiegel were expecting their second child together – a sibling for their 17-month-old son, Hart, and her eight-year-old son, Flynn, from her marriage to Orlando Bloom.

Now, editors at Australia’s Daily Telegraph have reported that Miranda welcomed a baby boy earlier this week. Representatives for the 36-year-old are yet to confirm the news, with the infant’s name and birthday not yet known.

While Miranda and Evan, 29, have kept details about the newborn under wraps, in a cover interview for the October 2019 issue of Australia’s Marie Claire magazine, the brunette beauty opened up about her pregnancy and spoke a little about her impending arrival.

“Yes, we know the sex and we have names,” she teased, adding: “But it’s nice to keep a little to yourself.”

Elsewhere in the chat, Miranda noted that she has been busy preparing her two sons for the arrival of the new baby but is confident they will happily welcome the tot.

“Flynn is madly in love with Hart,” the model smiled. “He really wanted a little baby brother so much. There hasn’t been any jealousy or anything. It’s been very sweet. And when Flynn walks in the room, Hart lights up like a light bulb.”

Miranda and Evan began dating in 2015 and tied the knot in May 2017.

Joaquin Phoenix leaves interview when asked if Joker will ‘inspire’ violence

Joaquin Phoenix recently walked out of an interview for his new movie Joker when the journalist asked if he’s concerned the film may “inspire” violence.

The 44-year-old actor was being interviewed about his latest movie by journalist Robbie Collin for Britain’s Daily Telegraph newspaper when he was asked, “Aren’t you worried that this film might perversely end up inspiring exactly the kind of people it’s about, with potentially tragic results?”

According to Collin, Phoenix looked confused and replied, “Why would you…? No… no”, before walking out of the room.

The publication reports that the leading man then spent the next hour talking to a publicist from Warner Bros. – the studio behind the film – to “get things back on track”.

He eventually returned to the chat, explaining to Collin that he panicked because he hadn’t thought about that possibility before. He never ended up answering the question.

Despite his remark, IGN published an interview with the actor which they said was conducted a few days before his chat with the Daily Telegraph, in which they asked him a similar question.

Responding to that publication, Phoenix replied: “I think that, for most of us, you’re able to tell the difference between right and wrong. And those that aren’t are capable of interpreting anything in the way that they may want to. People misinterpret lyrics from songs. They misinterpret passages from books.

“So, I don’t think it’s the responsibility of a filmmaker to teach the audience morality or the difference between right or wrong. I mean, to me, I think that that’s obvious.”

The Walk the Line actor is no stranger to storming off and leaving others waiting. Earlier this month, Joker director Todd Phillips revealed in a profile for The New York Times that sometimes his leading man “lost his composure on the set” and walked off in the middle of a scene because “he just wasn’t feeling it”. He insisted Phoenix always returned after taking a time out.

Top historian slams Mary, Queen of Scots movie

Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie’s new Mary, Queen of Scots biopic has been hammered by a top historian, who insists the film is full of inaccuracies.

The trailer for the movie, in which Ronan portrays the title character and Robbie her cousin Queen Elizabeth I, was released earlier this month (Jul18), and now top U.K. history scholar Dr. Estelle Paranque has blasted what she has seen so far.

She insists scenes in which Mary and Elizabeth meet in the trailer never happened.

“We have proof of that,” she tells Britain’s Daily Telegraph. “We have letters of frustration of Mary and we have letters of Elizabeth not knowing what she should do or not do in that case.”

Dr. Paranque is also keen to point out that the royal cousins were never friendly, despite scenes in the trailer that suggest they were.

The academic insists the two women were born rivals thanks to Mary’s claim to Elizabeth’s throne and their opposing religious views – Mary was a Catholic and Elizabeth was Protestant.

Dr. Paranque has also taken aim at Ronan’s Scottish accent in the film, revealing the real Mary Stuart would have sounded more French, as she spent much of her youth in France.

“She was raised in France and she was a de Guise sometimes more than she was a Stuart, I have to say,” the history expert adds.

“An historical fiction does not have to be 100 per cent accurate, however, I think when we know things that happened we have to keep it because otherwise where do we draw the line? Why not have Mary kill Elizabeth? Why not change history? It is not an historical movie any more, it is just fiction.”

Mary, Queen of Scots will hit U.S. cinemas in December (18) to become eligible for an Oscars nomination. The film will be released across Europe in January, 2019.

Tamara Mellon was paid less than the men at Jimmy Choo

Tamara Mellon found it hard to make ends meet when she worked at Jimmy Choo after being paid less than her male colleagues.

Tamara co-founded the label, a favourite among the rich and famous, in 1996 with shoe designer Jimmy Choo after realising the potential for high-end designer accessories.

In 2007 she appeared on the Sunday Times Rich List, where she was ranked as the 751st richest person in the U.K., but Tamara now reveals the reality of being a woman in business.

“On the first deal we did in 2001 (when Jimmy decided to sell his shares), I wasn’t really earning enough to be able to live on,” she confessed to Britain’s Daily Telegraph. “I did some research on what my peers were being paid elsewhere in the industry and spoke to one particular person who was running a similar company. They were paid three times more than I was. I was a single mother with a small child so the board organised for me to borrow money from the company, to pay myself! So when we went to an exit (with the next sale) I had to sell shares to pay my salary back.”

And during another sale, Tamara uncovered the truth about the pay disparity at Jimmy Choo: “I found that the earnings for the men in our C-suite (executive suite) were a lot more than mine.”

Tamara has opened up about her own experience with pay disparity to mark America’s Equal Pay Day on Tuesday (10Apr18).

She’s also offering discounts on the website for her namesake label, which managed to survive her 2015 bankruptcy filing.

“We never have sales or markdowns, but on Equal Pay Day we give a discount of what the pay gap is between men and women. We were hoping it would be smaller this year,” she sighed.
