Defiant Camila Mendes is ‘done with dieting’

  Riverdale" star Camila Mendes, who revealed last October that she and an older sister suffered from eating disorders, recently announced on Instagram her decision to embrace a less-strict lifestyle. "When did being thin become more important than being healthy?" asked Mendes, who plays ex-mean girl Veronica Lodge. "I recently went to a naturopath for the first time in my life. I told her about my anxiety around food, and my obsession with dieting. She phrased a pivotal question in such a way that struck a chord with me: What other things could you be thinking about if you didn't spend all your time thinking about your diet? I suddenly remembered all the activities I love...Keep on reading: Defiant Camila Mendes is ‘done with dieting’.....»»

Mourinho fully committed to Man United, says agent

MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Jose Mourinho's agent has taken the rare step of releasing a statement to reaffirm the Manchester United manager's commitment to the English Premier League club. Addressing what he describes as "rumors" of Mourinho leaving United, Jorge Mendes says "it's totally untrue. Jose is very happy at the club and the club is very happy with him." Mendes says Mourinho "is fully committed to the club in building a solid winning project" and stressed his client has a long-term contract at the club. Mourinho's current deal with United runs until June 2020, with the option of a further year in charge. United heads into a home match against last-place Fulham on Saturday in eighth place in the league, 18 points behind leader Manchester City and eight points off the top four in the fight for Champions League qualification......»»

Defiant Guiao keeps fate in Gilas World Cup bid: 'Alam ko kaya pa natin'

MANILA, Philippines --- When Yeng Guiao took over Gilas Pilipinas, his "contract" was to run until the 2019 FIBA World Cup in China. However, there's a very good chance that the Philippines might not even make it there. If that's the case, coach Yeng will step down from his post on his own. "When I took on this job, I stated very clearly that my objective and our goal is to bring this team to the World Cup," Guiao said. "I also stated that if I cannot bring this team to the World Cup, I'll walk away," he added. After Monday's crushing loss to Iran, Gilas falls out of Group F's top-3 for the first time. The Philippines has an even 5-5 record following back-to-back defeats and the country trails Australia (9-1), Iran (7-3), and Japan (6-4) in the standings. Only the top-3 move on to the World Cup and the Boomers have already secured their slot. The best fourth placed team also moves on but the fate of the two teams that happen to place in the top-4 in both groups will rely on China's final placing. As hosts, the Chinese have a sure slot in the 2019 World Cup. If China makes it to the top-3 of Group E, both fourth placed teams move on. China is currently no. 3 in Group E with a 6-4 mark. Still, while a chance to mak it to the World Cup is ever present, it doesn't take away from the disaster that was Gilas Pilipinas' final two home games in these Asian Qualifiers. "Well, of course we're disappointed, not just about the match but for the whole window," Guiao said after the Iran loss, which came days after the shock upset at the hands of Kazakhstan. "I still feel this is a strong team. I still feel if the chances are slimmer going to the World Cup but I still feel we can do it. Alam kong kaya pa rin natin," Guiao added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

The biggest thing Shawn learned from Taylor

Shawn Mendes used to be a bundle of nerves when performing onstage. Being an opening act for Taylor Swift's "1989" tour, in particular, terrified him; he didn't want to "mess up" in front of the pop superstar and her legions of fans. But Taylor gave Shawn some valuable advice that changed the young singer-songwriter's outlook about performing for a big crowd. "She told me, 'Everybody in the audience is there to have fun and support you. Nobody is there to judge. It's not a TV show where they're judging you,'" he recalled in an interview with Billboard. From that moment, Shawn said, he finally learned what it truly meant to be a performer---it's not about being perfect, but e...Keep on reading: The biggest thing Shawn learned from Taylor.....»»

EU divorce deal in peril after two UK Cabinet ministers quit

LONDON --- Two British Cabinet ministers, including Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab, resigned Thursday in opposition to the divorce deal struck by Prime Minister Theresa May with the EU --- a major blow to her authority and her ability to get the deal through Parliament. As pro-Brexit Conservatives called for a no-confidence vote in their leader, a defiant May insisted Brexit meant making "the right choices, not the easy ones" and urged lawmakers to support the deal "in the national interest." "The choice is clear," May told the House of Commons. "We can choose to leave with no deal. We can risk no Brexit at all. Or we can choose to unite and support the best deal that can be neg...Keep on reading: EU divorce deal in peril after two UK Cabinet ministers quit.....»»

Joaquin Phoenix sheds tons of weight to play Joker

  LOS ANGELES---It was almost a shock to see Joaquin Phoenix looking so thin in our interview during the recent Toronto Film Festival. It was especially surprising because we just saw him---tan and solid in "The Sisters Brothers."   But here he was seated, emaciated-looking yet sharp, candid and slyly humorous in his answers. Wearing a black shirt, the pony-tailed Joaquin looked even thinner.   With his brooding eyes, Joaquin is just as striking onscreen as he is in person---alternately serious, childlike, shy, awkward and defiant.   One of the finest actors of his generation lost a lot of pounds to play the title role in director Todd Phillip...Keep on reading: Joaquin Phoenix sheds tons of weight to play Joker.....»»
