Charlize Theron had a diamond bracelet woven into her hair for the 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday night.

The actress, who was nominated in the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role category for Bombshell, but lost out to Judy’s Renee Zellweger, looked stunning in a black and silver Givenchy outfit when she stepped out onto the red carpet at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.

But while Charlize’s ensemble garnered lots of attention, it was the Tiffany & Co. diamond tennis bracelet placed on her centre parting that really had fans talking.

“I didn’t have time to do my roots. So, my lovely friend Adir (Abergel, hairstylist) said, ‘Why don’t we throw a Tiffany necklace or bracelet in there,'” she told People at the event.

The bracelet, costing around $15,000 (£11,500), contained approximately three carats worth of diamonds. Charlize also sported large diamond earrings, bracelets, and rings from the luxury brand.

And in a video posted on his Instagram page, celebrity hairstylist Adir shared a close-up of his handiwork, with it appearing that he had braided the 44-year-old’s hair down the middle, before sewing the bracelet in with thread to secure it.

“Thank you, everyone, for the overwhelming love and messages about this futuristic look. Here’s a closer look at how I attached that beautiful @tiffanyandco tennis bracelet. Shiny hair and diamonds can make anyone happy,” he commented.

Other celebrities to opt for lots of sparkle at the 2020 SAG Awards included Jennifer Lopez, who teamed her elegant Georges Hobeika gown with a beautiful diamond necklace from Harry Winston, Reese Witherspoon, who rocked a one-shoulder crystal-studded Celine dress, and Dakota Fanning, who positively sparkled in a heavily sequined seafoam green Valentino creation.

Quentin Tarantino gets ‘many letters’ from stars wanting to be in his movies

Quentin Tarantino has insisted the best way to land a role in one of his movies is to write him a letter.

The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood director lives off the grid and doesn’t even own a phone, but he recently told the New York Post’s gossip column Page Six he gets “many letters” from actors wanting to appear in his flicks.

“I have no cell and I’m hard to get hold of,” he explained, revealing Margot Robbie, Dakota Fanning, and Lena Dunham, who all appear in his most recent movie, were among those who penned notes requesting roles in his projects.

“Margot knocked me on my keester (butt). I’ve watched her for years, I like Australians, and she was the only choice to play Sharon Tate,” the 56-year-old said. “She’s my Holy Grail. So, we talked. Then, ‘Want to do it? Don’t do anything meanwhile. You got it.’

“Producers offered her everything. She turned them all down so she’d be available for me. That loyalty and spirit is invaluable.”

However, Tarantino shared that stars including Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt didn’t need to request their roles in his 2019 hit. And he named Roman Polanski as one person who has never written to him.

“I don’t think he’s even seen the movie,” he said of his latest film, in which Polanski was played by Polish star Rafal Zawierucha.

Elle Fanning once fainted while auditioning for a Jessica Chastain movie.

The actress has been acting since she was a child, with early roles in Babel, Because of Winn-Dixie and Somewhere before breaking out with 2011’s Super 8.

In a cover interview with InStyle magazine, Fanning admitted auditioning makes her very nervous and on one occasion she actually fainted.

“Auditions, I can’t (do them)—I mean, obviously, sure, I can, but they make me so nervous. I fainted in an audition once. It was with Jessica Chastain. I didn’t get the part,” she recalled. “I was young, but, yeah, I fell down in front of people. It was very odd. There were glaring lights, and I felt so hot.”

Since her 2011 breakthrough, Fanning, the younger sister of actress Dakota Fanning, has starred in a wide variety of movies such as Maleficent, The Neon Demon, and The Beguiled. In the interview, she also explained how she chooses her roles and is getting more involved in the project development process.

“It’s definitely instinctual, and, of course, there are other factors, like, I really want to work with this director or this actor,” the 21-year-old continued. “I’m obviously not that old, but I am starting to realise that I can get a little more involved (in developing projects). If I have an idea for a story or if I read a book that I really love, I can start to cultivate that. I can take matters into my own hands.”

She is now producing a TV show about Catherine the Great, which she pitched to network bosses, something she describes as “very weird and unsettling”.

Elle Fanning wore a pink vintage John Galliano dress to her high school prom.

The Maleficent: Mistress of Evil star has been a formidable force on the red carpet since a young age, and in a new interview for InStyle magazine, noted that she was determined to make a style statement at the annual formal dances she attended as a teenager.

“The first prom was in ninth grade. I wore a white Ralph Lauren dress that we found at the mall. It was long and flowy with a V-neck tank,” she recalled to the publication. “For the second prom, I went to The Paper Bag Princess (in Los Angeles) and got a vintage bias-cut pink John Galliano dress.”

Despite her high-fashion look, Elle confessed that she’s not worn the gown since.

“I should wear it to a red carpet. You know, I’ve always just been interested in fashion. I love dressing up and playing characters,” the 21-year-old shared.

The star, who is the younger sister of Dakota Fanning, went on to explain that she learned how to express herself through fashion while she was promoting Maleficent back in 2014, when she was just 16.

“That was a very important moment because it involved a huge press tour. That’s when I learned how to express myself through clothes,” she commented.

Elsewhere in the interview, Elle opened up about her surprise appearance on the catwalk at Miu Miu’s 80s-inspired fall 2018 show during Paris Fashion Week last year.

The blonde beauty, who has served as a muse for the Italian fashion house alongside her sibling, hit the runway with bouffant hair and grungy make-up alongside models such as Georgia May Jagger, Adwoa Aboah and Kaia Gerber.

“That was crazy!” Elle exclaimed. “I was so nervous. It wasn’t a planned thing. I was attending anyway, and then Mrs. Prada had that idea. Her team said, ‘You’re starting the show, so you have to be very serious.’ I tried to keep a straight face.”

Dakota Fanning clarifies refugee role amid ‘whitewashing’ backlash

Dakota Fanning has responded to allegations of whitewashing regarding her role as an Ethiopian refugee in drama Sweetness in the Belly.

The movie is an adaptation of Camilla Gibb’s 2005 novel of the same name, and the 25-year-old actress stars as a refugee abandoned in Africa as a child by her parents and raised in Ethiopia as a Muslim.

The first clip of the film was released by Deadline on Wednesday and quickly went viral, with her casting sparking backlash.

Sharing the post, which read “First Clip Of Dakota Fanning As A White Ethiopian Muslim In Refugee Drama-Romance”, one person wrote: “I’m sorry Dakota Fanning as WHOMST?”

And while many social media users then insisted the role should have gone to a woman of colour or someone with experience of being a refugee, Dakota took to her Instagram Stories to clarify her casting.

“Just to clarify. In the new film I’m part of, Sweetness in the Belly, I do not play an Ethiopian woman,” she wrote. “I play a British woman abandoned by her parents at seven years old in Africa and raised Muslim.

“My character, Lilly, journeys to Ethiopia and is caught up in the breakout of civil war. She is subsequently sent ‘home’ to England, a place she is from but has never known.”

The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star went on to share that the film, which was partly made in Ethiopia, “is directed by an Ethiopian man (Zeresenay Berhane Mehari)” and “features many Ethiopian women.” She added: “(It) was a great privilege to be part of telling this story.”

Sweetness in the Belly, which also stars Wunmi Mosaku and Aquaman actor Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival later this month.

Dakota Fanning would love to direct a movie her sister Elle has written.

The 25-year-old rose to prominence at the age of seven, with a role in I Am Sam, and has since gone to star in films like War of the Worlds and The Runaways. Her younger sister Elle, 21, made her breakthrough with 2011’s Super 8 and has since made a name for herself with projects like The Beguiled and Maleficent.

The siblings are yet to work together onscreen, but in a new interview with Porter magazine, Dakota revealed they have discussed writing and directing a movie between them.

“I do want to direct a film one day. Working with my sister is a big thing, too. I would love for Elle to write something and me to direct it. We’ve always talked about that because she’s definitely more of the writer than me,” she shared.

The actress made her directorial debut with a short film for the fashion house Miu Miu last year and admitted she was terrified of being in charge of the production at first.

“I was so scared. It was a two-day shoot and I remember I got home at the end of the first day and looked at my boyfriend and said, ‘I do not want to go back,’” the star recalled. “I woke up that next morning and felt like I’d drunk three bottles of wine the night before. I was riddled (with anxiety).

“Then, of course, on the second day, I felt a little better and I was like, ‘OK, if I was working for eight weeks, I can imagine each day would bring me a little more confidence.’ In the end, I’ve never felt more pride for something.”

Dakota currently stars alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, which is in U.S. cinemas now.

Leonardo DiCaprio despised Once Upon a Time in Hollywood moustache

Leonardo DiCaprio kept “spitting out” his fake moustache during the filming of his new movie Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

In Quentin Tarantino’s hotly anticipated feature, the Oscar winner takes on the part of Rick Dalton, a TV star, who, alongside his stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), try to revive their careers in the film industry at the time of the Charles Manson murders in Los Angeles in 1969.

Some scenes in the feature required DiCaprio to sport a pretend moustache for a part in a Western-themed show and later on in a Spaghetti Western, but according to make-up artist Sian Grigg, the actor struggled with the look.

“The moustache drove Leo mad, because I had to leave it really long and it always went in his mouth,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “It was so hot out and the moustache kept going in his mouth, and he’d be spitting it out. He did the same thing in the scene as they filmed ‘off camera’ when he was supposed to be losing it a bit. It made us laugh as he kept spitting it out and the wig was quite long as well.”

Elsewhere in the chat, Grigg explained that she used WM Creations glue, a professional product used to apply facial pieces, to attach the moustache.

And the make-up expert insisted that DiCaprio’s moustache was meant to appear fake, as means of keeping in line with the setting of the flick.

“It was meant to look phony because they didn’t have good materials back then like we do now,” commented Grigg. “We were copying the style of films shot in that period and also covering Leo’s character up to look different and unrecognisable, which in the movie he’s not used to.”

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, also featuring Margot Robbie, Margaret Qualley, Austin Butler, Dakota Fanning, and Al Pacino, is now showing in U.S. cinemas.

Dakota Fanning doesn’t deny herself any treats because she has a “huge sweet tooth”.

The actress likes being active and aims to work out six days a week, but she believes people should be allowed to indulge in a little bit of what they fancy, because denying themselves what they enjoy isn’t sustainable.

“I’ve become a much healthier eater. I typically have yoghurt or eggs after my morning workout, a salad for lunch, and a grilled protein with quinoa and vegetables for dinner. But I’m definitely not the kind of person who says, ‘I don’t eat sugar or carbs,’ or ‘I don’t drink caffeine and wine.’ That’s never going to happen. I have a huge sweet tooth,” she told Shape magazine.

Whenever she visits her parents’ home in Los Angeles, Dakota and her mother always treat themselves to Baskin-Robbins ice cream for dessert.

“Eating is all about moderation. If I’m going to a restaurant that’s famous for its pasta, I’m going to eat the pasta. I don’t limit myself. That’s not sustainable. You have to indulge. Food is supposed to be fun and pleasurable,” the 25-year-old continued.

In the interview, The Alienist star also explained how she enjoys taking Cardio Barre, a ballet-inspired cardio class, as well as AKT, a dance-based cardio and strength class, and makes sure she has a bath every night to unwind from a hectic day.

“I have a really good ritual to help me unwind. I take a bath every night, no matter what. I put on a podcast, get in the tub, and close my eyes,” Dakota said. “This routine is such a constant in my life; I can’t live without it. If I’m in a hotel and there isn’t a tub, I have to move. It’s like, ‘No, I won’t. I can’t. I’ve got to have a bath.'”

Dakota Fanning: ‘It’s so important to have a really good sweat’

Dakota Fanning aims to work out six days a week because she enjoys the “high of feeling strong”.

The War of the Worlds actress had an active childhood thanks to her mother, a professional tennis player, and her father, who played baseball, and she has kept it up as an adult because exercise makes her feel good.

“I come from a family of athletes so being active was instilled in me from a young age,” Dakota explained to Shape magazine. “I like the high of feeling strong… It’s so important to have a really good sweat. It clears my head and makes my skin look good, and I feel better overall.”

When she’s not away on location shooting a film, the 25-year-old aims to work out six days a week, with her current favourites being Cardio Barre and AKT, a dance-based cardio and strength class.

“I love to do Cardio Barre, a ballet-inspired cardio class. I’ve been taking it since I was in high school, and I’m obsessed,” she shared. “I also started doing AKT. The first time I did it, I thought I was going to die! It was so tough in the best possible way.”

Dakota has also learned the importance of resting her body and swears by a bath every evening to help herself relax.

“I have a really good ritual to help me unwind. I take a bath every night, no matter what. I put on a podcast, get in the tub, and close my eyes,” Dakota said. “This routine is such a constant in my life; I can’t live without it. If I’m in a hotel and there isn’t a tub, I have to move. It’s like, No, I won’t. I can’t. I’ve got to have a bath.”
