Actress Lucy Hale has joined the cast of the new Fantasy Island film.

The Pretty Little Liars star has signed on for the project, which will be based on late TV mogul Aaron Spelling’s series about an island where the dreams of visitors come true. Hale will star alongside CHiPs star Michael Pena, who has been cast as Mr. Roarke, the role originated on television by the late Ricardo Montalban.

Hale will reunite with Truth or Dare filmmaker Jeff Wadlow, who is directing the film. He is also co-writing the movie with his Truth or Dare co-writers Chris Roach and Jillian Jacobs, and will serve as an executive producer.

The show, which was pitched and produced by Spelling and created by Gene Levitt, was a huge hit when it ran on television for seven seasons from 1977 to 1984. The original series was beloved mostly for its cheesy elements, including the infamous “Ze plane! Ze plane!” lines uttered ny star Herve Villechaize at the beginning of every episode.

A film centering on Fantasy Island star Villechaize’s final days was recently released on HBO, with Peter Dinklage portraying the actor who starred as Tattoo in the series. Jamie Dornan stars alongside Dinklage in My Dinner with Herve and plays the real-life journalist who conducted Villechaize’s final interview before he committed suicide at the age of 50 in 1993.

Villechaize achieved worldwide recognition for various roles, including his portrayal of evil henchman Nick Nack in the 1974 James Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun.

The Game of Thrones star also produced the movie, which was released last month (Oct18).

Lili Reinhart wowed in a pink sequin dress at the 2018 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday night (12Aug18).

The Riverdale star stepped out at the celebration held at The Forum in California, where she picked up the prize for Choice Drama TV Actress, while her show won a number of other awards including Choice Drama TV Show.

Lili walked the red carpet separately from her co-star and boyfriend Cole Sprouse, who won Choice Drama TV Actor, and certainly made a style statement in a number from Monique Lhuillier. The 21-year-old matched her ensemble with pink satin Olgana Paris shoes and jewellery from EF Collection.

“Moody sultry Elle Woods meets Vogue,” she captioned a snap of the look on her Instagram page, referring to Reese Witherspoon’s character in 2001 movie Legally Blonde.

Among the other Riverdale castmembers to dress up for the night included Madelaine Petsch, who sported a Giambattista Valli top and trousers featuring a floral print, while Camila Mendes looked stunning in a blush pink Fendi dress with strappy Sophia Webster heels.

In addition, 13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford dazzled in a black lace Alberta Ferretti dress and Sergio Rossi shoes, Nina Dobrev rocked a lemon yellow minidress and Anna Kendrick opted for a pink and silver minidress as well as silver Giuseppe Zanotti high heels.

Meanwhile, Lucy Hale went all out in a striking Mary Katrantzou dress with plunging neckline which she complemented with Jimmy Choo pumps, Kat Kim bling and an Edie Parker clutch. To top off her eye-catching look, the Pretty Little Liars actress had her make-up artist Kelsey Deenihan give her a slick of green shadow on her lids.

“Poison ivy… we WENT for it tonight,” she wrote alongside a snap of her beauty look on her social media pages.

Other celebrities at the bash included Joey King, Chloe Grace Moretz, Bebe Rexha, Storm Reid and Meghan Trainor.

Lucy Hale has urged everybody to make time for self-care.

The Pretty Little Liars star, who is also a spokeswoman for Degree deodorants, is adamant that while it’s important to work out and eat healthily, mental wellbeing should never be neglected.

As a result, she is encouraging us all to make room for plenty of ‘me-time’ in our lives.

“My mom has always taught me to be the best version of myself, so she instilled that in me. But you also learn new things about yourself as you get older,” the actress explained in an interview with StyleCaster. “That just comes with age and experience. At 29 years old, I’ve figured out what works for me and what doesn’t. For me, my lifestyle is so on the go and it’s constantly changing, so for me, it’s about the tiny moments during the day that I sort of have to pause and breathe.”

Lucy cites eating good food and meditation as a couple of things that are guaranteed to shift her towards a better head space, and also recommends exercise as a way of letting go of tension.

“I genuinely enjoy it,” she smiled. “Not just because of the physical aspects, but it’s my therapy in a way, so I never skip out on it. I typically work out in the morning, and when I have a day off, that’s definitely on top of my list.”

And when it comes to beauty, the Truth or Dare star likes to indulge in luxury skin care.

“I definitely splurge on facials and massages,” she admitted. “I have a facialist; her name is Molly Lucio. I see her almost every week just to maintain. I kind of let her do her own thing, from lasers to peels and LED light to muscle tightening. When I’m just chillin’ at home, I am a huge face mask lover. I’ll pop on a couple and watch TV. That’s my dream day.”

Actress Lucy Hale exposes her face to wretched-smelling skincare products every single day.

The Truth or Dare star is acne prone and she utilises a toner on a regular basis that effectively staves off pimples, even though it absolutely reeks.

“I’m obsessed with the Biologique Recherche Lotion P50,” she tells Marie Claire magazine. “I know a lot of people know about it and like it, but I just recently started using it, and I love it.

“We all use a lot of the wrong products for our skin type, and this toner helps balance out your face to get your skin to look how it looked as a child.

“It smells awful – like really, really intense – but it’s worth it; my pores are smaller, there’s more clarity, and my skin looks better overall.”

Lucy, 28, will always go the extra mile to keep her skin clear and has tested out some products that others may be too scared to try.

“Retinol has been the biggest game-changing product for me, but you’ve got to be consistent with it, even when your skin flakes at first,” she shares, noting it normally “takes months to work”.

“I’m really breakout-prone, and retinol keeps my skin really clear, because it helps speed up cell turnover to prevent build-up in your pores,” she adds. “I mix my retinol with my moisturiser and use it only three nights a week.”

Although the former Pretty Little Liars star is willing to take risks with skincare, when it comes to hair and makeup, she prefers to keep it quick and chic.

“I would try to keep it fast and classic,” Lucy says. “I would pull my hair into a sleek ponytail, then slick down the flyaways with a gloss. “(I prefer) really clean skin, a very minimal eye, and a really good brick-red lipstick. I really love the matte red lip I get from Nars Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil, or I’d use MAC’s Ruby Woo lipstick, which I know everybody also loves.”

Lucy Hale wasn’t allowed to do her own stunts in Truth or Dare

Lucy Hale was rebuffed when she offered to do one of her own stunts in Truth or Dare.

The Pretty Little Liars star is moving away from her teen drama roots with the new horror, about a group of friends who face deadly consequences during a game of truth or dare.

The film is full of jumpy moments which involved stunt work, and although 28-year-old Lucy was keen to get stuck in, producers hired professionals for the bigger stunts.

“Definitely, the most challenging was the roof sequence,” Lucy said to Collider of the scene when a character is dared to walk around the roof of a building. “I wasn’t on the roof, I was just running around and we were throwing furniture. I was so sore from throwing all the furniture. I swear, we did it 150 times. I was so sore. Then, we had drones. It was a four-day sequence.

“There was the car stunt that they didn’t let me do. I wanted to do it, but they wouldn’t let me. The hardest one for me to watch was the neck break scene. I don’t even know how they did it. I’m not sure how they made that look so believable. But, that roof sequence was a challenge for everyone.”

Talking about her move from TV into film, Lucy admits she initially wanted to take some time off when the popular show ended in 2017, but felt she couldn’t pass up Jeff Wadlow’s scary new flick.

“Pretty Little Liars was coming to an end, and I didn’t really know what I was going to do. I was freaking out because I was like, ‘Oh, my god, what do you mean I’m not going to work? What am I going to do?!’ I was like, ‘Maybe I’ll take some time off’. I had a whole list of things that I could do. But then, I got presented with this idea that I thought was really clever and unlike anything I’d heard before.”

Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey also stars in the film, which hit cinemas earlier this month (Apr18).

Katy Perry is taking a little bit of Asia home with her in the form of her newly-dyed pink hair, after wrapping her gigs on the continent.

Katy finished the third leg of her Witness: The Tour on Saturday (14Aprl18) in Jakarta, Indonesia, but playing in Asia has left a lasting impression on the Roar hitmaker.

Uploading a photo on Instagram, the 33-year-old singer revealed she’d added a pink tint to her pixie cut.

“And that’s a wrap on the Asian leg of Witness The Tour! Fell in love with many different cherry blossoms from Tokyo to South Korea… so @rickhenryla and I decided I should become one,” she captioned the shot.

Hair stylist Rick Henry also added a snap of Katy to his own Instagram, a cute photo of the singer posing with a diamante Hello Kitty face.

“As we traveled through all of the different countries on the Asian leg of #WitnesstheTour – we were inspired by the beauty of the cherry blossoms! It was time for a PINK KITTY naturally.. make-up @manthony783 @Katyperry #hairbyrickhenry #colorbutter #pink #katyperry #pixie,” he wrote.

Pink hair is a big trend in the showbiz world at the moment, with Lucy Hale opting to try out the colour, while Kylie Jenner donned a hot pink wig as she partied in Coachella over the weekend.

Hailey Baldwin and Kim Kardashian, and husband Kanye West, also tried the hue out recently.

Tyler Posey filmed opening sequence to Truth or Dare by accident

Actor Tyler Posey and his Truth or Dare castmates had no idea the casual vacation footage they filmed on their phones would end up as the opening sequence of the new horror film.

Tyler and his co-stars were flown to Mexico ahead of production on the scary movie at the behest of director Jeff Wadlow, who wanted the cast to develop real-life bonds to enhance the friendships onscreen.

As soon as the actors arrived on the sandy beaches of Rosarito, they started gleefully filming their escapades on smartphones, only to discover later that the random footage would actually end up in the movie.

“We did not know that we were going to film the opening title sequence,” Tyler recalls to Collider. “(Director) Jeff wanted us to go to Mexico, as a cast bonding trip, to get to know one another, so that the friendships felt really real.

“I think it was just an added bonus to possibly film our opening title sequence on our phones, to make it seem like we actually lived out that week in Rosarito, but it turned out to be really, really, really good, and we got great footage.”

Posey stars alongside Lucy Hale in the new film, about a group of college seniors who vacation in Mexico together for the last time before graduating university, only for a silly game of truth or dare to turn spooky and deadly.

Calling his castmates “super talented and super passionate” people, Tyler absolutely loved filming the movie, but the former Teen Wolf admits there was one gory element he thought Truth or Dare needed more of.

“I wish there was more blood, honestly,” he laughs. “I had a great time on Teen Wolf, with all of the blood on that show. There was not enough blood for me (on this). There’s definitely a lot of blood in the movie, but I wasn’t covered in it enough.”

However, he thinks fans will be shivering in their seats when they see the horror film.

“I think scary movies are way scarier when there’s less to see, if that makes any sense,” he winks.

Truth or Dare hits U.S. theatres on Friday (13Apr18).

Lucy Hale is a chronic chewer thanks to ‘oral fixation’

Actress Lucy Hale makes sure she always has a huge bag of chewing gum on hand to fulfil her “oral fixation”.

The former Pretty Little Liars star admits she is somewhat of a chronic chewer and is rarely without a pack – or a dozen – of Mentos Pure Fresh Sugar-Free Gum.

“I always (get the big size),” she tells Cosmopolitan. “I have an oral fixation, so I always need to be chewing something.”

Her fixations don’t end with chewing – the 28-year-old confesses she also has a thing for tackling chapped skin immediately with a $14 (£10) tub of Aquaphor Healing Ointment Advanced Therapy Skin Protectant.

“I keep this tub of Aquaphor next to my bed that I’ve probably had for three years,” she shares. “It’s the best. I use it for everything. Mainly for chapstick, but you can put it anywhere.”

Fussy Lucy, who washes her face three times every night with an oil cleanser, cream cleanser, and milk cleanser, is also adamant about the type of deodorant she wears, which is part of the reason why she recently signed up as a brand ambassador for Degree.

“I’m someone who rewears clothes,” she explains. “I used to be the girl who would buy a bunch of stuff, and now it’s just more about quality than quantity, and there’s nothing worse than not being able to wear something because of deodorant stains. “The whole point of this deodorant is you can wear it with black and white clothing, which is my whole closet anyway, because on white, it doesn’t turn yellow, and on black, it doesn’t leave white marks.”

Halsey flaunted her figure in a bold black gown at the 2018 amfAR Gala on Wednesday night (07Jan18).

The singer-songwriter led a parade of celebrities at the event held at the Cipriani Wall Street in New York, with the bash serving as the unofficial kick-off to New York Fashion Week as well as an opportunity to honour individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the fight against HIV/AIDS.

Halsey, who gave a special performance to the audience, pulled out all the stops with her attire, opting for a strapless number from Georges Hobeika with thigh-high split, which she accessorised with platform heels and sparkly earrings. While the 23-year-old looked very glamorous, she also suffered a wardrobe malfunction as she walked the red carpet, when a fellow guest accidentally stepped on the hem of her skirt, pulling her dress up and exposing her underwear – though the star quickly recovered and continued to pose up a storm.

But it wasn’t just Halsey who showed off her legs; Heidi Klum sported a dramatic black sequin gown with high split from Zuhair Murad, while rising model Sistine Stallone donned a sparkly emerald green dress with keyhole neckline and thigh-grazing split.

Among the other stars to prove their style credentials was Hailey Baldwin, who wore a white lace gown from Roberto Cavalli, Alexandra Daddario, who shone in a sparkly dress from Salvatore Ferragamo, and Lucy Hale, who was gorgeous in a red dress with embroidered bodice by Jenny Packham.

La La Anthony was pretty in a pale lilac gown with floral print from Naeem Khan, while Taraji P. Henson chose a stunning David Koma gown with black, silver, and copper diamond-patterned sequins that featured a plunging neckline.

Other stars in attendance included Ashley Graham, Joan Smalls, Sienna Miller, Adrien Brody, Queen Latifah and Sailor Brinkley-Cook.

Lucy Hale looks to short stars for style inspiration

Actress Lucy Hale looks to the Olsen twins for style inspiration because, like her, they are short and petite.

The Pretty Little Liars star stands at five feet two inches (1.6 metres) – the same height as fashion designer siblings Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen – and whenever she is struggling to find the right look to flatter her frame, she turns to the stylish duo for ideas.

“I always want my street look to look like Mary Kate and Ashley’s because they’re little too!” the 28-year-old gushed to Us Weekly, before revealing she is loving the vintage styles the twins are famous for wearing. “I’ve recently gotten into vintage and thrift shopping, so my everyday style has kind of a 70s vintage flare, I’d say – at least right now. It could be different next week!”

Lucy is keen on exploring her voice in fashion, admitting her “evolving” attire changes so often due to her fluctuating moods.

“I just like to have fun with what I wear,” she explained. “I think that fashion for me is how I express my personality… but I think in the business in what I do (sic), I get to try different things and new things and push the boundaries and do things left of centre, which is fun.”

Lucy added she tends to keep it simple when she is not in front of the cameras.

“I’m much more toned down in my day-to-day life,” she shared. “(I wear), like, no colour typically and I’m in black, white and grey. (My street style) is more casual, maybe a bit edgier, but on the (red) carpet is where I like to explore a little bit.”
