Kaley Cuoco is joining Kevin Hart and Woody Harrelson in action-comedy Man From Toronto.

The actress has found her first major movie role following the conclusion of the long-running TV comedy, The Big Bang Theory, which came to an end in May 2019.

Cuoco shared the casting news on Instagram and told her followers she was excited to be reuniting with Hart, who she starred alongside in 2015 comedy The Wedding Ringer.

“In a time where things feel uncertain, this kind of news makes me feel incredibly grateful and elated!” the 34-year-old wrote in the caption beside a screengrab of the news. “Am I dreaming? Can’t wait to reunite with @kevinhart4real and basically sit there while he makes my face hurt from 24/7 laughter… and Woody?! What?! #manfromtoronto time to get back to work!”

According to Variety, Cuoco has signed on to play the female lead in the comedy caper. The project will mark her first movie role since a cameo appearance in 2017’s Handsome: A Netflix Mystery Movie and a voice part in 2016’s Why Him? She also voices the title character in the Harley Quinn animated TV show and will soon be seen in HBO Max’s show The Flight Attendant.

The film follows the world’s deadliest assassin, known as the “Man from Toronto”, who is forced to team up with a stranger, Hart’s character Teddy, to save the day after they are mistaken for each other in a rented Airbnb.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard director Patrick Hughes will helm the movie from a script written by Robbie Fox and Chris Bremner based on a story Fox conceived with Jason Blumenthal.

Man From Toronto was gearing up to begin production before the coronavirus pandemic struck. Jason Statham dropped out with weeks to go before filming and was swiftly replaced by Harrelson. The film is now scheduled to hit cinemas in September 2021.

Nina Dobrev has dressed up as the Chanel runway show prankster for Halloween.

French YouTube star Marie Benoliel, known as Marie S’Infiltre, crashed the fashion house’s spring/summer 2020 during Paris Fashion Week at the start of October and was eventually escorted off the runway by an unimpressed Gigi Hadid.

And on Monday, The Vampire Diaries actress teamed up with her pal, writer and producer Lane Cheek, to recreate the headline-grabbing moment for the spooky holiday, with the pair showing off their efforts on Instagram.

Like the prankster, the 30-year-old wore a black and white houndstooth tweed skirt suit with a black blouse underneath and a black hat, while Cheek channelled Hadid by sporting a dirty blonde wig, a navy top and black hot pants over sheer black tights.

They also recreated some of the photos taken from the incident and posted them alongside the real ones, with Dobrev adopting a shocked look as Cheek places one hand on her shoulder.

“‘They said I couldn’t pull off the impossible but look at me now! The most prestigious catwalk in the world.’ – Marie @gigihadid @mariesinfiltre,” Dobrev wrote in the caption.

Benoliel appeared to be flattered by the costume as she shared one of Dobrev’s photos on her own Instagram page and wrote in the caption, “Best Halloween costume by @nina.”

Dobrev also received praise from her fellow actresses in the comments, with Kaley Cuoco writing, “Your costumes are epic!”, Claire Holt posting, “You’re so good at this it’s a gift”, and Rebecca Rittenhouse commenting, “Your costumes are so relevant.”

On Friday, Dobrev had dressed up as Bad Guy singer Billie Eilish by wearing a baggy orange Louis Vuitton jumper and matching shorts, bulky jewellery, long green nails and spraying green dye in her roots. She also evoked the teen singer’s When the Party’s Over video by having her face painted to make it look like she had been crying black tears.

Kaley Cuoco has shared a candid video of her in pain as she underwent intense therapy following a workout.

The Big Bang Theory star posted the clips on her Instagram Stories, and filmed her therapist Flory as she performed a scraping technique – called gua sha – on Kaley in a treatment room.

“I’m doing gua sha to remove all the fascia, it’s intense and tight. Your nerves and ligaments get better,” she explained, as Kaley bluntly told the camera: “She’s just scraping at me.”

Gua sha on the body is so intense, that it can leave behind bruises. It originated as a bodywork treatment in Chinese medicine and is intended to promote circulation in muscles and other deep tissues that aren’t easily accessible.

Sharing videos of her wincing in pain, Kaley said she could barely talk while Flory was working her magic.

However, she confessed that the expert was “an angel sent from heaven who helps my body because my hips and legs hurt 24/7,” after her hardcore workouts, which focus on lunges, squats, and jumps.

“My legs hurt all the time. ALL THE TIME,” she added of her sessions with personal trainer George C. King.

The 33-year-old also did cupping, a treatment that involves suctioning glass jars to the skin, on her legs, with the technique used to treat sore muscles by increasing blood flow.

Later, the actress was sat in her car and opened up about her recent health struggles, going on to note that she had been experiencing a lot of pain.

“I am absolutely wrecked. I don’t even know how to function right now. I mean, I go a few weeks and I end up not being able to walk,” Kaley admitted, before going on to comment that she takes time to indulge in intense self-care, so she doesn’t burn out.

“Like I think my body just starts to shut down from just complete overuse. And if I don’t take care of it, like I’m going to crumble,” the blonde beauty insisted.

Actress Kaley Cuoco relies on false eyelashes whenever she wants to look flawless on the red carpet.

The Big Bang Theory star’s longtime makeup artist Jamie Greenberg recently began experimenting with lashes and reveals the blonde beauty now swears by them.

“Kaley is always down to try new looks,” she tells Us Weekly. “She’s one of the most outgoing, hilarious and compassionate people I know and just has fun with everything. She ended up loving those Lilly Lashes because, I mean, did you see them on her? Gorg!”

Greenberg credits her long relationship with Cuoco for making their collaborations so effortless, noting she often works alongside her haircare guru and stylist to create her show-stopping appearances.

“Since Kaley and I have worked together for so long, with Christine Symonds on her hair and Brad Goreski and Daniela Viviana on her style, our creative process isn’t as structured as you might think,” she adds. “We let her outfits inspire us, we explore different products and we try what we’re feeling in the moment.”

As spring approaches, Greenberg is looking forward to trying a bold new makeup trend on Kaley – bright berry lipstick.

“I think this particular colour looks good on every skin tone,” she says. “I love it with a tan. I think summer is the time to go lighter on the makeup and focus a lot of your skincare and primers.”

Not only has Jamie worked with the 33 year old on the hit sitcom, she was also behind the fun look Kaley sported as she and her The Big Bang Theory castmates gathered for a handprint ceremony outside the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood on Wednesday (01May19).

All seven regulars were there to make history, becoming the first stars of a TV show in be honoured in such a way.

Kaley Cuoco glad to beat Reese Witherspoon to rights for favourite book

The Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco couldn’t believe her luck when she discovered Reese Witherspoon hadn’t snapped up the rights to a beloved book.

The actress launched her production company last year (18) and immediately picked up the film rights to author Chris Bohjalian’s New York Times bestseller.

“We have a bunch of projects in development and I had my first book that I auctioned, called The Flight Attendant,” she tells Access Hollywood. “It’s a great book… I fell in love with the book and I called and said, ‘Did Reese Witherspoon get the rights to this because I want it’, and she didn’t, so I got in there and took it… It’s my first one, my first adventure.”

Kaley admits she was surprised Reese hadn’t been in touch, because the Oscar winner has a knack of grabbing great books.

“She gets them all, which is good,” Cuoco adds. “She’s my idol with that.”

As well as producing the movie, Kaley will also star as flight attendant Cassandra Bowden, who finds a dead body lying next to her as she wakes up in her hotel room hungover from the night before in Dubai.

Talking about her new role as a movie producer, the actress says, “We cannot just let things just happen, no matter if you’re coming off the biggest show in the world; it’s not gonna be handed to you… You gotta keep going no matter who you are.”

Meanwhile, Kaley is counting down the final episodes of hit comedy The Big Bang Theory, which ends in May (19). She has been playing Penny on the show for 11 years.

Kaley Cuoco has hit back after two of her Instagram followers implied she was pregnant underneath a photo of the actress in a billowing dress.

Kaley is currently enjoying her honeymoon in Switzerland with new husband Karl Cook, nearly six months after they tied the knot. The romantic break had to be delayed as The Big Bang Theory star underwent shoulder surgery straight after their nuptials.

Kaley has been updating fans with photos from their break, but a few questioned if the pair were expanding their family after a photo the actress shared made it look like she had a rounded tummy.

“When’s the baby due??” asked one person, with another adding: “Are you hiding a baby bump?!?!”

Highlighting the two comments with numerous rolling eye emojis, the 33-year-old wrote: “I’m so sorry I bent over in a way to where my dress billowed in the wind and made you think this.

“Question. Would you walk up to me and ask this straight to my face?”

Many of her other 4.3 million followers were also unimpressed with the pregnancy comments.

“Seriously to those STUPID IDIOTS asking is kaley is pregnant, if she was she would ANNOUNCE IT MORONS. Let @kaleycuoco be in peace FFS,” one blasted.

“This isn’t the first time people have just came to the conclusion that she was pregnant which she clearly was not and is not now. People just need to leave her alone already,” another posted.

In October, Kaley also shut down rumours she was expecting after she posed with her sister Briana at the InStyle Awards.

“It’s just so comedic and shocking that people would ask that. I’m not pregnant. I guess it was a pregnant angle. Seriously, shut up,” she said in a now-deleted video.

Rebel Wilson dazzled in custom Givenchy at 2018 InStyle Awards on Monday night (22Oct18).

The comedy star led a parade of celebrities at the Getty Center in Los Angeles and stood out in a black lace Givenchy dress designed for her by artistic director Clare Waight Keller.

In a chat with People.com, the Pitch Perfect actress explained that her garment was particularly special because it is the first custom piece Clare has overseen since creating Meghan, Duchess of Sussex’s wedding gown back in May.

“I think the last big couture piece that Clare Waight Keller did was Meghan Markle’s wedding dress,” the 38-year-old explained to the publication. “And now she’s making me a dress so that’s kind of amazing just in and of itself. But then factor in the fact that it’s Givenchy – an amazing Paris fashion house – I’m a bit shocked how it all happened but really grateful. I think it’s a really cool move that they’re being inclusive with someone like me.”

During the ceremony, Rebel took to the stage to present her stylist Elizabeth Stewart, who also works with Julia Roberts, Cate Blanchett, Gal Gadot, Viola Davis, Jessica Chastain and Sandra Bullock, with the Stylist of the Year Award.

“Tonight I had the honour of presenting the Stylist of the Year Award to my brilliant stylist @elizabethstewart1 x even though she styles all the cool chicks like Julia, Cate, Gal, Viola, Jessica, Sandra…somehow this cool chick has time for me!” Rebel wrote alongside a photo of herself with Elizabeth at the bash. “Congrats Elizabeth, you deserve all the trophies! You’re so creative, talented, generous and kind!”

Other stars to get dressed up for the event included Storm Reid, who sported a black sequin Preen number, and Lea Michele, who opted for a David Koma slip dress.

Tracee Ellis Ross wore a Giambattista Valli Couture dress with Irene Neuwirth jewellery, Busy Philipps chose an Off-White ensemble and Miranda Kerr stepped out in a gold sequin Tom Ford minidress and black Chanel coat.

But style star Elizabeth and Oscar-winning actress Julia made a real sartorial statement by posing together in matching lilac Givenchy suits, Jacquie Aiche necklaces and Clergerie shoes.

Julia was presented with the Style Icon Award, Clare received Fashion Designer of the Year, Jeff Goldblum took home Man of Style, stylist Karla Welch was named Voice of Style and actress Constance Wu was awarded Badass Woman.

In addition, Jennifer Aniston’s hairstylist Chris McMillan was honoured with Hairstylist of the Year and James Kaliardos won Make-up Artist of the Year.

Kaley Cuoco constantly changes her workout routines so she doesn’t get bored.

The Big Bang Theory actress often uploads details of her exercise sessions on social media, with some of her favourite workouts including lifting weights, yoga and indoor cycling classes.

But Kaley is adamant that the key to sticking to a regimen is lots of variety.

“If I get a little bit bored, I’ll switch over to SoulCycle, which I love too,” she said in an interview with U.S. Women’s Health magazine. “It’s all or nothing. I’m hot or cold. I’m not a grey area. So, if I’m doing yoga, we’re doing it every day this week…Then I’m like, ‘Oh my god, I have to switch.’ Then I’m going crazy on SoulCycle… ‘Okay, I have to switch.’”

Playing sport has always been a big part of Kaley’s life too, as she was a regionally ranked amateur tennis player until she stopped playing at the 16.

In recent years, the blonde beauty has developed a passion for riding horses, an interest she shares with her equestrian champion husband Karl Cook.

“Cut to nine horses later, showing all over the country, having my own barn…it’s totally changed my life, for so many reasons,” the 32-year-old smiled.

Shortly after marrying Karl in June (18), Kaley underwent surgery on her shoulder, which took 12 weeks to recover from. As she continues to heal from the operation, the star has employed a personal trainer from Proactive Sports Performance in California and she’s thrilled with the results.

“This place has been a major refuge for me in many ways,” she recently wrote on Instagram. “Their entire team has been incredibly instrumental in rehabbing my shoulder and having me fall back in love with the gym and personal training. Staying in shape is hard and it takes work, so when you find a programme that works for you, don’t let it go!”

Kaley Cuoco went for an androgynous chic look in a shorts suit as she attended the 2018 Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic on Saturday (06Oct18). 

The Big Bang Theory star is known for pulling out all the stops in stunning gowns and flirty minidresses for red carpet events.

But the blonde star opted for a different look as she made an appearance at the event at Will Rogers State Historic Park in the Pacific Palisades, California.

Showing off her trim pins, Kaley donned a red Fendi jacket and matching shorts, teamed with white Stuart Weitzman loafers and a cute heart print red leather bag, also by Fendi.

To add to her androgynous look, Kaley wore her hair slicked back away from her face, finished in a top knot.

Her look was put together by stylist and pal Brad Goreski, who shared a picture of himself with the actress on his Instagram page alongside the caption: “Frendi’s in Fendi #vcpoloclassic.”

Speaking previously about his long working relationship with Kaley, Brad explained: “We’re just having fun showing different sides to her style personality.”

Kaley wasn’t the only star to opt for a Fendi ensemble for the occasion. This Is Us star Mandy Moore wowed in a plunging scarlet dress by the Italian fashion house, which she edged up with a pair of black fishnet shoe boots and a black bag.

Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo also went for a take on red, sporting a black and red printed long-sleeved dress, which she paired, somewhat unusually, with white sneakers.

Rebel Wilson, Molly Sims, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Camilla Belle, Justin Hartley and Samantha Ronson were among the other celebrities at the star-studded event.

Kaley Cuoco wanted a very “effortless” make-up look for her wedding day.

The Big Bang Theory actress married equestrian Karl Cook in an intimate ceremony held at a horse stable near San Diego, California on Saturday (30Jun18), with Kaley walking down the aisle in a stunning white lace dress with matching cape from Reem Acra.

When it came to her cosmetics, make-up artist Jamie Greenberg has shared that she simply wanted to highlight her client’s features.

“The inspiration behind Kaley’s look was effortless and natural beauty,” she told People.com. “The Reem Acra dress speaks for itself. We wanted a natural true Kaley to shine through with this look.”

For Kaley’s make-up, Jamie first applied a layer of Cover FX’s Blurring Primer as a base and then added a layer of the brand’s Power Play Foundation.

She then dabbed on a little concealer under her eyes, shimmery eyeshadow to her lids and a dusting of yellow and rose gold coloured highlighter to the tops of her cheeks before setting the look with Cover FX’s Mattifying Setting Spray.

To finish, Jamie curled Kaley’s eyelashes and then applied a layer of black mascara before proceeding to fill in her brows with Anastasia Beverly Hills’ Brow Liner in Taupe. The beauty expert, who also works with Elisabeth Moss and Krysten Ritter, proceeded to add a swipe of Burt’s Bees Matte Lip Crayon in Sedona Sands to her pout.

Meanwhile, hairstylist Christine Symonds was in charge of Kaley’s hairstyle and opted to give her a chic chignon.

Christine applied Kerastase’s Nectar Thermique and Mousse Bouffante to the locks before blow drying and then curled the hair with a 1-inch curling iron. She then pulled the hair into a low ponytail and twisted it into a loose knot which was topped off with a sparkly floral comb.

When Kaley changed into a white lace Tadashi Shoji jumpsuit for the reception, Christine was on hand once again, and switched the blonde star’s hair into a high ponytail.
