Zoe Kravitz has taken to social media to show off a brand-new hairstyle.

The Big Little Lies actress often switches up her hairstyles, experimenting with everything from short crops to platinum blonde tresses. Lately, Zoe has been rocking long brunette braids, but on Tuesday, she uploaded a photo on Instagram showing her posing with her fresh pixie cut.

“Hair,” she captioned the snap, adding the scissors emoji.

Zoe didn’t add any further details, though it is likely her transformation is for her upcoming role as Selina Kyle/Catwoman in Matt Reeves’s The Batman, also featuring Robert Pattinson, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, and Andy Serkis. Production is expected to begin shortly, with the film slated for release in June 2021.

Zoe’s post quickly caught the attention of her celebrity followers, with Charlize Theron writing, “So, so pretty,” Abbie Cornish noting, “Looks so good,” and Emily Ratajkowski simply adding, “Yes” with a heart eye emoji.

Models Carolyn Murphy and Naomi Campbell posted emojis too, as did Zoe’s stepfather, actor Jason Momoa.

The 30-year-old tagged her go-to hairstylist Nikki Nelms in her Instagram photo, with the hair guru writing “Baby boo” in the comments section.

Previously, Nikki shared in an interview with Refinery29 that her celebrity client is pretty much fearless when it comes to trying out new looks.

“It also helps that she’s super open to change and not that attached to anything,” she stated. “She’s open to length or cutting it, open to darkening or bleaching. When you’re open, you can experience more. Once you figure out what you love about your hair, you can do the same thing. And it doesn’t hurt to be as beautiful as Zoe is, either.”

John Turturro to play crime boss in The Batman

John Turturro is to play crime boss Carmine Falcone in The Batman.

The latest standalone film about the iconic DC Comics character already stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as The Riddler, Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Jim Gordon, while Colin Farrell is rumoured to be playing the Penguin.

Director Matt Reeves announced that The Night Of actor was joining the cast by making reference to Turturro’s performance in 1998 classic, The Big Lebowski, on Twitter.

“(Batman) I said,” Reeves tweeted, alongside a GIF of the actor as bowling ace Jesus Quintana saying, “You said it, man.”

Nicknamed The Roman in the DC Comics, Falcone is a crime boss who is an enemy of Batman’s, but a friend of his alter ego, Bruce Wayne.

In one comic, called The Long Halloween, Carmine Falcone’s father brings his injured son to Thomas Wayne’s mansion to be treated up after being shot, and fans have speculated that Reeves is following that particular story for his take on Gotham City’s crime-fighting superhero.

Oscar-nominated British actor Tom Wilkinson played Carmine Falcone in Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins back in 2005.

Reeves wrote the script with Mattson Tomlin, and has regular collaborator Michael Giacchino composing the score, as well as Greig Fraser serving as cinematographer.

Filming is due to begin in spring 2020 in London at Leavesden Studios, and is set to be released in June 2021.

Laura Dern: ‘Younger men find older women sexy’

Laura Dern wants older women to know that younger men still find them sexy.

The Big Little Lies star has opened up on style and beauty in an interview with InStyle magazine and revealed that she’s still lusted after by the younger generation at the age of 52.

“There is an American female myth that younger men don’t find older women sexy. That is a myth. Take it from me!” Dern laughed.

The actress is reportedly single after divorcing musician Ben Harper in 2013.

Elsewhere in the interview, the Dern said she and her Big Little Lies co-stars, including Reese Witherspoon, Zoe Kravitz, and Shailene Woodley, all share beauty tips and treatments while at work on the HBO show.

“We talked a lot about skin care. Reese and I even share a facialist. It’s a group of women working together for months, and we all want to take care of our skin and have tried different fads,” she explained. “Zoe turned me on to a face mist that was so beautiful. And I’m always looking for organic makeup and companies that are doing good things for the planet, which Shailene knows all about.”

And as for the vital piece of advice that she gave her co-stars? Take a bath.

“The one tip I bring to all of my friendships is that baths are the ultimate game changer,” the actress stated. “If I’m at a hotel and have eight minutes before I have to run somewhere, I’m in a warm bath with lavender. It’s my meditation and can totally change my energy.”

Robert Pattinson doesn’t see Batman as a hero

Robert Pattinson has insisted he won’t be playing Batman as a hero.

The Twilight actor was confirmed to star as Gotham City’s Caped Crusader in Matt Reeves’s The Batman back in June, and his co-stars have been coming together in recent weeks, with Zoe Kravitz confirmed to portray Catwoman and Jeffrey Wright and Paul Dano set to play Commissioner Gordon and the Riddler, respectively.

During an interview with The New York Times, the reporter stated, “You were saying earlier that we should be sceptical of any actor who wants to play the hero, and yet here you are playing Batman,” and Pattinson replied that he doesn’t consider the iconic comic book character to be one.

“Batman’s not a hero, though. He’s a complicated character. I don’t think I could ever play a real hero – there’s always got to be something a little bit wrong. I think it’s because one of my eyes is smaller than the other one,” he said.

He explained that he was drawn to the film because he’s a fan of Reeves and considers Batman to be a “dope” character.

“His morality is a little bit off. He’s not the golden boy, unlike almost every other comic-book character. There is a simplicity to his worldview, but where it sits is strange, which allows you to have more scope with the character,” the 33-year-old shared.

Pattinson also noted that fans should take any comments he makes about Batman with a pinch of salt because he has “said so many ridiculous things over the years” and sometimes wonders afterwards where the “screaming nonsense” came from.

The actor’s casting received a mixed reaction online but he was expecting much worse, particularly after his experience with Twilight.

“Maybe I’m just used to abuse by now. At least I didn’t get death threats this time – that’s a plus! It’s funny that people are so very angry about Twilight. I never particularly understood it,” he added.

Paul Dano is reportedly in talks to take on the role of the Riddler in The Batman.

The casting news comes hours after it was revealed Jonah Hill had pulled out of playing a criminal mastermind in Matt Reeves’s dark take on Gotham City’s crime-fighting superhero.

Should he accept the gig, Dano will join Robert Pattinson, who was announced earlier this summer as the new Batman after taking over from Ben Affleck, alongside Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, and Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Jim Gordon.

According to editors at Variety, the There Will Be Blood star is currently in negotiations with bosses at Warner Bros., who offered Dano, 35, the role once Hill had turned down the chance to star in the DC Comics movie.

It’s believed the Riddler’s alter ego will be known as Edward Nashton.

Jim Carrey previously played the supervillain in 1995’s Batman Forever, alongside Val Kilmer as Batman and Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face.

Cloverfield director Reeves previously revealed that The Batman will be a darker, noir take on the comic book hero, as he wants to present a more grounded portrayal of the character.

“What’s exciting about Batman is how it relates to now and also how personal it can be,” the 53-year-old filmmaker, who took over the reins of the movie after Affleck departed the project, explained. “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.”

Jonah Hill has reportedly exited negotiations regarding a role in The Batman.

The two-time Oscar-nominated actor was reportedly offered a role in Matt Reeves’s upcoming superhero movie, which will star Robert Pattinson as Gotham city’s crime-fighting Caped Crusader, but talks have now broken down between Warner Bros. and Hill, according to editors at Deadline.

The news comes just days after it was confirmed Zoe Kravitz would be playing Selina Kyle and her feline villain alter-ego, Catwoman.

Hill has been in talks with studio bosses for months, and it was reported in September that he was in the early stages of accepting the role of a villain, which multiple outlets had suggested was The Riddler.

It is unknown why the 35-year-old passed on the role, however, sources told Collider that Hill had wanted $10 million (£7.8 million) to play a villain, which is allegedly more than double what Warner Bros. executives are paying Pattinson to play the lead.

The outlet also suggested that while Hill was in talks to play The Riddler, the Superbad star had actually wanted to play the smaller role of the sewer-dwelling Penguin, but director Reeves had already approached another actor for that character.

Hill recently starred opposite Emma Stone in Netflix’s sci-fi series Maniac and was last on the big screen alongside Matthew McConaughey in The Beach Bum earlier this year.

Pre-production on The Batman is expected to begin soon, with filming slated to start in late 2019 or early 2020, ahead of a tentative release date of June 2021.

A rep for Hill has yet to comment on the report.

Zoe Kravitz to play Catwoman opposite Robert Pattinson’s Batman

Zoe Kravitz will play Catwoman opposite Robert Pattinson’s caped crusader in The Batman.

The Big Little Lies star has signed up to play Selina Kyle and her feline alter ego in Matt Reeves’ upcoming comic book movie, which will be a much darker take on Gotham’s crime-fighting hero.

Kravitz reportedly went through a rigorous testing process to land the role, competing against Deadpool’s Zazie Beetz, Baby Driver’s Eiza Gonzalez, and Oscar winner Alicia Vikander, according to Variety.

However, Kravitz reportedly secured the part after she tested last week with Pattinson, despite concerns over scheduling issues with the third Fantastic Beasts movie, in which she plays Leta Lestrange.

She now follows in the footsteps of previous onscreen Catwomen such as Anne Hathaway, Halle Berry, and Michelle Pfeiffer.

Kravitz, who is the daughter of musician Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet, was congratulated on securing the role by her stepfather, Aquaman star Jason Momoa.

“I’m so proud of u zozo bear. On and off screen OHANA (family). DC WB ohana Lola and Wolfies big sister is CAT WOMAN Unbelievable so freaking stoked. Your going to have so much fun Aloha P bear (sic),” he wrote alongside a snap of the pair on Instagram.

Reeves took over directing duties on The Batman from Ben Affleck after the actor departed his role on the standalone movie following his appearance as Bruce Wayne/Batman in the critically-panned Justice League in 2017.

Jeffrey Wright is rumoured to be playing Commissioner James Gordon, while Jonah Hill will reportedly portray an unspecified villain.

A production date for the Warner Bros./DC Comics has not yet been set, although insiders told Variety that filming could start in late 2019 or early 2020, ahead of a scheduled cinema release in June 2021.

The Canadian singer is well known for her love of couture, and the Pose star, who made a splash at the 2019 Oscars in a velvet gown and tuxedo jacket from Christian Siriano, have both been selected by editors at the publication as two of the most stylish celebrities in Hollywood.

Dion commented that she is currently “obsessed” with pieces by Dutch designer Ronald van der Kemp, founder of fashion house RDVK.

“Every piece they do is one of a kind. And last time I went to Paris Fashion Week, Valentino blew my mind,” the 51-year-old gushed.

Meanwhile, Porter named his style icons as Diana Ross and Andre Leon Talley and also described high heels as the most “powerful thing one can wear.”

Dion fell under The Virtuosos category, joining Marc Jacobs, Diane Keaton, Zoe Kravitz, Rami Malek, Priyanka Chopra, basketballer Serge Ibaka, and playwright Jeremy O. Harris, while Chloe Sevigny, Gemma Chan, Mahershala Ali, cultural philanthropist Pamela Joyner, Frank Ocean, Keanu Reeves, Elle Fanning, and Cicely Tyson were labelled as The Classics.

Joining Porter as The Originals is costume designer B. Akerlund, Tyler, the Creator, artist Kehinde Wiley, Harry Styles, gallerist Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn, and Lena Waithe, while a special mention was given to designers including Haider Ackermann, Brunello Cucinelli, and Rei Kawakubo.

Zoe Kravitz is gearing up to launch a beauty line with Yves Saint Laurent.

The Big Little Lies star announced her partnership with the international brand on Friday, teasing fans with a sexy promo video clip of herself cooking up a pot of red liquid in a kitchen.

“@YSLBEAUTY#YSLBEAUTYXZOECOLLECTION ME + YSL BEAUTÉ! STAY TUNED FOR MORE, SEPTEMBER 1ST,” she captioned the footage before signing off with a red lipstick emoji.

Although the actress has been the face of Yves Saint Laurent beauty since 2017 and has fronted various campaigns – including the label’s Black Opium fragrance last year – this upcoming venture marks the first make-up line she’s ever launched.

Last month, the 30-year-old became the global ambassador for Yves Saint Laurent Beaute, just months after she was hand-picked to be the muse for the luxury French fashion house. She is also set to front their upcoming campaigns, including the Tatouage Couture collection later this summer.

At the time, the newly-married Zoe, the daughter of rocker Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet, expressed her excitement about working with YSL Beauty, and said it was one of her “favourite brands”.

“Their ability to combine the chicest of styles with a raw edge has always been to me one of the best ways to express yourself through fashion and beauty,” she added.

Zoe’s exciting collaboration announcement comes just weeks after she tied the knot with Nocturnal Animals actor Karl Glusman at her father Lenny’s home in Paris, France in June.

Zoe Kravitz and Karl Glusman marked their wedding with custom “Just Married” jackets.

The Big Little Lies star married the 31-year-old actor and musician at her father Lenny Kravitz’s 18th century mansion in Paris, France on 29 June, and Karl has now shared a sweet detail from their intimate nuptials.

“I believe our stars were written before we met, ‘Karl + Zoe, ride or die into the sunset…'” he captioned a photo on Instagram which showed the couple embracing hours after becoming newlyweds.

In the snap, the Nocturnal Animals star shows off the back of his custom black leather jacket, which features a big heart filled with clouds and a portrait of the 30-year-old X-Men: First Class actress and an unfurled scroll across the bottom of the jacket which reads, “Just Married.”

Zoe also had a matching jacket which featured a portrait of her new husband in the heart.

Karl later tagged artist Samantha Urbani as the creator of the unique piece of artwork on the jacket and wrote: “@samandude made the COOLEST jackets EVER!”

The artist shared a video of the duo dancing in their new jackets and wrote, “Only the coolest couple could inspire the coolest jackets, it was almost as fun making them as watching you get down in them.”

The couple exchanged vows in a chic Parisian ceremony in front of guests including her mother Lisa Bonet, her stepfather Jason Momoa, and her Big Little Lies co-stars Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, and Reese Witherspoon.

Many of the famous faces invited to the wedding had also joined the bride and groom at their rehearsal dinner at the Laperouse restaurant the night before the nuptials.

Zoe and Karl began dating in 2016, and became engaged in February last year.
