Sofia Vergara insists high heels and her drive are what husband Joe Manganiello finds sexiest about the actress.

The couple make sure to keep its three-year marriage as romantic as possible with regular date nights and the Modern Family star admits her man loves it when she dresses up for him.

Sofia insists she doesn’t have to try too hard – a sexy pair of heels is more than enough to turn Joe on.

“I love high heels,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “If I go to work at five in morning, I wear a pair of jeans with a cute top and flip-flops, and then, when I get in the car again at five o’clock and I have to go to dinner, I just change into a high pair of heels and feel ready to go.

“To be honest with you, for me, putting on heels is not an effort. It’s an effort not to wear them.”

The actress, who launched a new denim line on Friday (01Feb19), reveals Manganiello also loves his wife’s work ethic: “He loves that I love to work, that I love to be creative, that I’m always planning my ventures, that I’m always excited about work and about business,” she explained. “He loves that.

“I think the important thing that I have learned about balancing work and family is that you have to learn how to delegate. You can’t do everything yourself. You have to surround yourself with people you know can help you. To pay someone’s salary, it’s an investment so you can do more things, so you can trust people to help you do all the things you want.”

Ben Affleck officially bows out of The Batman film

Ben Affleck has officially stepped out of starring in Matt Reeves’ upcoming The Batman film.

The actor/director was originally lined-up to reprise his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman from the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, and Justice League flicks in the new project, and at one stage was set to direct from a script he had co-written.

However, Reeves took over the movie in February 2017, and on Wednesday (30Jan19), studio executives from Warner Bros. confirmed to Deadline that Affleck, 46, will not be in the film, which is set to be released in the summer of 2021.

Editors at the film publication report that the story will focus on a younger Batman, with a search currently underway for an actor to play the Caped Crusader.

Even though Affleck has been influential in getting the movie off the ground, he appeared to be happy with the outcome as he wrote on Twitter later on Wednesday, “Excited for #TheBatman in Summer 2021 and to see @MattReevesLA vision come to life (sic).”

Details about the script for The Batman remain under wraps, though Joe Manganiello has been attached to play Slade Wilson / Deathstroke, while J.K. Simmons is rumoured to be portraying Commissioner Gordon again, with Jeremy Irons returning as Alfred Pennyworth. No other casting details have been announced.

Meanwhile, in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Reeves indicated that the plot of the film will be a detective story.

“It’s very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale. It’s told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it’s going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional,” the Cloverfield filmmaker said. “It’s more Batman in his detective mode than we’ve seen in the films. The comics have a history of that. He’s supposed to be the world’s greatest detective, and that’s not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been.”

Affleck will next be seen onscreen in Triple Frontier alongside Charlie Hunnam and Pedro Pascal, and is in the post-production phases of Dee Rees’ crime-drama The Last Thing He Wanted.

Sofia Vergara hasn’t changed her makeup routine in 40 years

Sofia Vergara has applied her makeup the same way for decades after sticking with a tip she picked up long ago.

The Colombian beauty launched her career at Univision in the 1990s before becoming a household name on U.S. TV comedy Modern Family and her cosmetics practice has been the same since she first set out as an actress.

“The best advice I got was from the first makeup artist I started working with at Univision,” the 46 year old tells Health magazine. “She taught me that I should only wear colours that make me look good, you know? That I shouldn’t be a victim of fashion.

“She was like, ‘Just always stick to the colours that are good for you, and for the shape of your eye’.

“So for 40 years, I’ve been doing the same makeup! I have warm skin, so I look good with browns, and golds, and bronze; I don’t look good with greys or pinks.”

Sofia knows what’s best for her skin too and won’t use abrasive products after realising certain items caused more harm than good.

“I used to do masks and scrubs and rubs and things… but I’ve had to simplify as I’ve gotten older,” she explains. “I have (skin condition) rosacea – it’s redness and sensitivity. If you put on too much stuff, there is irritation, so I have to keep it very simple.

“I do the retinol thing that everybody does, but I have to do it in moderation. And I do vitamin C, also in moderation. But I still try (lots of different products) on my neck and my chest.”

Sofia is married to Magic Mike hunk Joe Manganiello and she admits she finds his toned-down approach to skincare and health maintenance very attractive.

“He’s fit and he’s good looking and everything, but he is very not into it – like, he doesn’t really know how handsome and big he is,” she says. “He works out for health and for strength, not for a six-pack. You never hear him talking about stuff like that. It’s all about health and strength.”

“And his beauty routine is very simple ‘ it’s a shower and combing his hair, and that’s it,” she adds. “I mean, he’ll get a sunburn, so I have to harass him and follow him around the house to put a little bit of cream on. It’s like I was putting poop in his face! You know? He is just a true guy.”

Naomie Harris stole the spotlight in a glittering gown at the Rampage premiere on Wednesday night (04Apr18).

The British actress led a parade of celebrities at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles for the debut of the new sci-fi movie, which is loosely based on the video game series of the same name and follows a primatologist who must team-up with George, a giant albino gorilla, in order to stop an invasion of monsters.

While Naomie plays genetic engineer Dr. Kate Caldwell in the flick, she ditched the lab coat for the screening and instead sported an eye-catching glittering gold number with a scooped neckline which she paired with gold high heel sandals and a matching clutch. The 41-year-old topped off the ensemble with an emerald green-coloured ring and earrings.

Naomie’s co-star Malin Akerman, who plays the woman responsible for the infection and mutation of George, also got dressed up for the night and turned heads in a black dress with tiered skirt and dramatic ruffle on the right shoulder. The Swedish star complemented her look with strappy black high heels and carried a boxy silver purse.

Lead actor Dwayne Johnson looked handsome in a grey suit, white shirt and brown shoes, choosing to accessorise his outfit with a pair of cool sunglasses, while Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays a government agent in the movie, donned a navy suit and patterned black shirt.

The actor was joined at the screening by his actress wife Hilarie Burton, who gave birth to their second child in February, and looked gorgeous at the event in a pale pink silk dress with ruffle detail on the skirt.

Joe Manganiello, who portrays private military group leader Burke in Rampage, wore a grey suit and black suit, while his wife Sofia Vergara made a splash in a fitted dress featuring black and white print.

Other celebrities to turn out for the screening included Danny Trejo, Luis Guzman and Dwayne’s San Andreas co-star Alexandra Daddario.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is confident he’s figured out how to make a video game movie that doesn’t suck.

Dwayne is gearing up for the release of monster blockbuster Rampage, which is based on the ’80s arcade game.

The film is the latest in a long line of video game movie adaptations, with not all faring well at the box office. When asked what the secret is to making a good gaming feature, Dwayne said it was all about seeking the right feedback from motion capture experts.

“We went to those filmmakers (Planet of the Apes and Lord of the Rings) and those ones who made that company, we went to Weta (design and effects company) as it relates to The Lord of the Rings and the new Avatars, and the motion-capture company,” he shared with Collider. “So I think going back to your question, the ‘what’s the secret to it?’ It would have to be trying to find those filmmakers who really did it right, those department heads and those companies who did it right, see if they responded to the script, which they did.

“Because I think something like this in their minds, which are way smarter than I am, especially when it comes to tech script, this is the kind of script where they’re like, ‘Oh yeah.'”

Rampage boasts an A-list line-up, with Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Joe Manganiello joining Dwayne.

Motion capture specialist Jason Liles stars as Dwayne’s on-screen best friend, gorilla George, with the Fast & Furious star gaining a new-found admiration for the movement process.

“I can see why when, I think, the second to last Planet of the Apes came out, where the discussion of an Oscar nomination started happening, and that dialogue started happening filling up our rooms throughout Hollywood,” he smiled. “Now I get it and I understand. I thought I got it before, understood it then with Andy Serkis and what he was doing, but wow. When you look at some of these guys, it’s spectacular.”

Aisha Tyler turned up the glamour in an on-trend black suit, Jaime King wowed in an ice-blue gown which she paired with red satin high heels and Jenna Ortega donned a striped dress and platform heels.
