Ariel Winter has weekly therapy sessions to keep her “mentally and physically healthy”.

The Modern Family star opened up about her wellness routine and highlighted the importance of self-care at the Spotlight charity event, benefiting foster care youth, at Paramount Studios in Hollywood over the weekend.

“I think it’s really important for kids to take care of themselves and make that a priority,” the actress told Entertainment Tonight.

The star then opened up about how she’s improving her own life through exercise and mental wellness, noting: “You can take care of yourself and not be selfish. You can make sure to prioritise how you feel.

“I think that that’s something that I didn’t do for a very long time and I’m doing that now and that feels great.”

Highlighting the benefit of exercise and weekly therapy, the 21-year-old, who began appearing on the hit ABC show at the age of 11, added: “We only get one life and you’ve gotta live your own, you’ve gotta do as much as you can to make sure you’re feeling healthy mentally and physically and that’s something that I’m doing a lot more of now and it’s nice.”

The final season of Modern Family airs Wednesdays on ABC.

Kim Kardashian asked for Reese Witherspoon’s approval before wearing her Legally Blonde-inspired look for Halloween.

The reality TV star is following in her late attorney father Robert Kardashian’s footsteps by training to become a lawyer, and last Thursday, decided to transform into Witherspoon’s bubbly sorority girl-turned-Harvard Law School student character Elle Woods for a bash.

Sharing several snaps on her Instagram page, Kardashian donned a pink dress and blonde wig, and also uploaded a video showing her parodying Woods’s famous Harvard admissions video essay.

The look was met with acclaim from fans, as well as Witherspoon, who commented, “Elle Woods forever,” adding the 100 emoji.

And speaking to Entertainment Tonight Canada, Witherspoon revealed Kardashian actually reached out to her for her blessing before debuting the costume.

“She actually wrote me and said, ‘I’m gonna do it.’ And I was like ‘Go for it!'” The Morning Show actress said. “It turned out great. She did a great job.”

“I’m impressed with that!” her co-star in the Apple TV+ series, Jennifer Aniston, added.

Aniston hadn’t yet seen the clip, but after her pal gushed over the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s project, she enthused: “That’s incredible, you have to show me that!”

Meanwhile, a third Legally Blonde movie is currently in the works, with Witherspoon hoping co-stars Jennifer Coolidge, Luke Wilson and Selma Blair will return for the flick.

Julianne Hough wore Dolly Parton’s earrings to Heartstrings premiere

Julianne Hough borrowed some earrings from Dolly Parton for the premiere of her new Netflix series Heartstrings on Tuesday night.

The Rock of Ages star couldn’t find the jewels she had planned to wear to the screening held at Parton’s Tennessee theme park, Dollywood, so the country music icon dug up a pair of sparklers that would perfectly match her minidress.

“We couldn’t find my earrings, and so Dolly lent me her earrings for the night,” Hough told Entertainment Tonight. “(I said to Parton’s team), ‘I lost my earrings! I bet you any money you’re going to have some really big chandelier earrings, do you have any? And they were like, ‘Yup!'”

Hough went on to note that she was open to offering the Jolene singer some free dance lessons as a thank you.

“That is my mission in life,” the dance professional smiled. “Honestly, what she does with her music, she lets people feel completely expressed in what she does with her music. I do that with my body and dance, and so we each have our own specific way to help people feel expressed, but yes, Dolly, if you ever want a little hip action dance lesson, I’m here for you. You lent me your earrings, I will give you some dance lessons, heck yeah. I owe you!”

The anthology series Heartstrings is inspired by the stories and memories behind some of Parton’s biggest hits. Hough will play marriage wrecker Jolene in the first episode, set to premiere on 22 November, and the star noted that it was a dream come to true to sing alongside the 73-year-old.

“When you’re on stage with somebody, with that much of an artist, you can’t help but just get lost in it. You’re not performing anymore, you’re just in it, and, yeah, it was incredible,” she gushed. “To get a compliment from Dolly about my voice is the highest praise. She was just like, ‘Oh, my God, your voice is amazing,’ and I was like, ‘OK, this little ego back here that’s telling me I’m not good enough, well, Dolly said I am, so, boom!”

Reese Witherspoon is hoping to reunite with her original Legally Blonde castmates on the upcoming third movie in the popular franchise.

The actress will reprise her role as Elle Woods, a naive sorority girl who tries to win back her ex-boyfriend by enrolling into Harvard Law School, in the reboot.

Reese’s flick will follow on from the 2001 original and its 2003 sequel, and a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, she speculated over which fan favourites may return for the feature.

“It’s just a development project right now, so we’ll see,” she told reporters at a screening of her new Apple TV+ series The Morning Show at the Paley Center in New York on Tuesday.

“I love Jennifer Coolidge and Luke Wilson and Selma Blair and so there’s so many great characters that people love,” Reese continued, naming Elle’s onscreen pal Paulette, her boyfriend, Emmett, and on/off friend Vivian, respectively.

She added: “If we end up doing it, hopefully they end up all being there.”

Earlier this year, Reese revealed during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that she was still working on the project.

“We’re definitely talking about it…,” the 43-year-old said. “I mean it’s sort of about women being underestimated and I think it’s a good idea… Things have changed, but not that much has changed! I love playing that character. She’s so amazing.”

MGM executives previously indicated they are looking to release the third instalment in May 2020.

Julie Andrews is ready to return to Genovia for a third movie in The Princess Diaries franchise.

The veteran actress played Queen Clarice Renaldi in the hit 2001 flick and its 2004 sequel, The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement.

And the Mary Poppins star isn’t yet done with the role, telling Entertainment Tonight she’s on board if co-star Anne Hathaway “would like me to be”.

“I don’t think the script’s even been written. I don’t think anyone is yet sure of when, what, where, how…” she mused, adding there’s “talk about (a sequel) from time to time.”

The star’s comments follow her recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, where she told host Andy Cohen she “hasn’t heard” anything about a revival of the franchise, but suggested she’d love to take part.

“I think if it happens it will be lovely and if it doesn’t I wouldn’t have known about it,” she said.

Meanwhile Anne, who played the lead character Mia Thermopolis, revealed on the same show back in January that a script for the movie exists, and claimed the writers were in the process of perfecting the plot.

“There is a script for the third movie,” she said. “I want to do it. Julie wants to do it. Debra Martin Chase, our producer, wants to do it. We all really want it to happen. It’s just we don’t want to unless it’s perfect because we love it just as much as you guys love it. It’s as important to us as it is to you, and we don’t want to deliver anything until it’s ready, but we’re working on it so…”

Linda Hamilton found it ‘almost impossible’ to say iconic Terminator line

Linda Hamilton found it “almost impossible” to say Arnold Schwarzenegger’s iconic “I’ll be back” line without sounding like the actor while filming Terminator: Dark Fate.

The 63-year-old actress returns to her role as Sarah Connor in Terminator: Dark Fate, with Schwarzenegger starring as the Terminator once again.

Filming the action-packed movie saw Linda pushed to her limits, but the screen star also struggled when it came to her delivering “I’ll be back” – which Schwarzenegger made iconic when he said it in the 1984 original, The Terminator.

“You can’t say it without sounding like him,” Linda laughed to Entertainment Tonight. “It’s at the end of a very intense action scene and it’s weapons and it’s triple digit heat, and you’re just giving it everything and then every time I would finish with that line, I would look at (director) Tim (Miller) and he would go, ‘Sounds like Arnold. Let’s do it again.’

“Tim guided me through it. Because it really was almost impossible to say it after three decades of hearing it in your head with his voice.”

However, she needn’t have worried, as the line even got the thumbs up from the man himself.

“She did a great job,” Schwarzenegger said. “I wasn’t there when she did it, but I saw it in the movie, and I was amazed that someone could say it in a different way than the way I said it.”

Rachel Weisz felt ‘liberated’ working with female director on Black Widow

Rachel Weisz found working with a female director on Marvel’s upcoming Black Widow movie “liberating”.

The actress stars alongside leading lady Scarlett Johansson in the first female-fronted movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The flick is also one of the studio’s first to be directed by a woman, and Rachel found working alongside Australian filmmaker Cate Shortland an eye-opening experience.

“There is something that happens in a scene when a woman is across from another woman,” she told T Magazine’s 2019 The Greats issue of working on the film. “It sounds really pompous, but you are free from the history of ownership – I really mean that. It’s liberating.”

While the studio is renowned for its impressive blockbuster flicks – including Avengers: Endgame, which recently became the highest-grossing movie of all time – Rachel confessed she was surprised by the passion and integrity of those involved behind the scenes.

“It doesn’t feel Hollywood to me, big budget – it feels like the people there are the stewards and guardians of this storytelling they care about,” the 49-year-old considered.

Filming has wrapped on the movie, which is currently in post-production, and Scarlett told Entertainment Tonight she can’t wait for fans to see the finished cut, enthusing: “I love it. I’m so proud of what we made. Now we get to sprinkle the magic all over it. Get it ready for audiences.”

Black Widow is slated to hit cinemas in May 2020.

Nicole Kidman had no idea who Charlize Theron was after she underwent a transformation for her role in Bombshell.

In the flick, Charlize plays Fox News host Megyn Kelly – and it turns out the make-up and costuming was so good, it also fooled one of her co-stars.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight at the Elle Women In Hollywood Awards on Monday, the Long Shot star explained how her pal was taken aback by her unrecognisable transformation.

“She walked by me at one point and I thought she was mad at me,” Charlize recalled. “I thought, ‘Oh god! What did I do? Did I mess something up in her trailer? Did I not say hi nicely?’

“She just came up to me and she was like ‘Charlize?’ and then I said, ‘Yes are you mad at me?’ She said, ‘No I just didn’t know that was you!”

Nicole plays journalist Gretchen Carlson in the movie – a biographical drama surrounding the women at Fox News who stood up to former network chairman and CEO Roger Ailes and exposed a culture of toxic behaviour and sexism.

During the chat, the Oscar winner highlighted the importance of women in the workplace supporting one another, and insisted The Hours actress had always been there for her.

“She has never done anything but support and show up for me,” the star continued. “We’ve been trying to make a movie for so long. I’m just happy to finally be in a film with her.”

Bombshell, which also stars Margot Robbie, John Lithgow and Kate McKinnon, debuts in cinemas on 20 December.

Jennifer Lopez has given her approval to Emilia Clarke, after the star paid homage to her iconic Versace dress at the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday.

The Game of Thrones star wore a navy Valentino gown with a plunging neckline – much like the revealing tropical green print gown that turned heads when the Love Don’t Cost a Thing star sported it to the 2000 Grammy Awards.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet ahead of the ceremony, Emilia, 32, confirmed she was channeling the 50-year-old singer/actress with her 2019 Emmy Awards look.

“I think that J-Lo in Hustlers is the greatest introduction of a character I have ever seen,” the star gushed. “I heckled in the cinema. I’m English, I don’t do that, but I did! So J.Lo is my inspiration for this evening. I plan on channeling her all night long.”

Jennifer stars as Ramona, a veteran stripper who sets up an initiative to scam wealthy men when the sex industry bottoms out during the financial crisis of the late 2000s, in the movie.

Ahead of the ceremony, Emilia also wrote online: “@emmys2019 WE BE ROLLLLLIN! @jlo just as heads up you have inspired this years lewk (sic).”

And sharing a clip from the interview on social media, the On The Floor singer was full of praise for the actress, writing: “When the Mother of Dragons meets #Ramona. #dead #HustlersMovie I love u @emilia_clarke #daenerys.”

The evening gave the British actress a sweet reunion with her former co-stars, as Game of Thrones scooped the prize for Outstanding Drama Series at the prestigious ceremony.

Celine Dion only wants to wear outfits which make her feel “strong”.

The Canadian superstar first began her transformation from popstar to chic fashionista back in 2016 after she hired stylist Law Roach to switch-up her wardrobe and stage outfits for her Las Vegas residency gigs.

Now, she’s rocking pieces from the likes of Vetements, Off-White, and Chanel, and accordingly, credits her bold fashion choices to her fearless approach to life.

“So, courage… it represents a whole new life for me, my album, the tour, the way to dress, the way to say you can’t please everyone,” Celine told Entertainment Tonight. “I dress for me; the way I feel. I want to feel that I feel great about myself, I feel strong about myself, I feel good about my decisions with the help of a lot of people, but it’s all about courage and I think everyone should feel like that.”

The My Heart Will Go On hitmaker is releasing a new album, aptly titled Courage, in November and is overjoyed to have control over her music.

“I think I was always courageous. I hope it doesn’t sound pretentious to say that, but I always stressed a lot. We always kind of like just do whatever they suggest to me – not that I was a robot or anything, not to sound kind of weird, like, ‘Do this, do that.’ But I feel like right now I’m more in charge than ever before and this is definitely a part of my life where the maturity kicks in,” the 51-year-old smiled.
