  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’.....»»

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.....»»

Fool on a hill

TOUTED AS THE costliest local movie production to date, Goyo: Ang Batang Heneral is certainly easy on the eyes. The charming Dagupan sarsuela sequence is a 19th Letras y Figuras by the master Damian Domingo come to life. The dungeon scene of the torture of the late Gen. Luna’s aide Maj. Manuel Bernal (Art Acuna) is starkly and disturbingly lit, like a Goyo etching from Los Caprichos, with the defiant prisoner, a grotesque creature from hell who refuses to die, cackling at and mocking his captors.

Shawn Mendes single by choice

Canadian pop star Shawn Mendes, who was earlier linked to model Hailey Baldwin---who's now Justin Bieber's fiance---is not in a rush to get into a romantic relationship.   "I'm not currently dating anyone, but it's not because I don't have time," he said in an interview with Variety. "I don't know if I'd be dating anyone if I was home in Pickering, either."   Anyway, he's surrounded by "amazing parents" and "incredible friends." And that seems to be enough for him now.   "It hasn't stumbled across me, and I'm not chasing it. Of course, seeing all those other artists and people in relationships, you think, 'Maybe it would be nice. Who would be great fo...Keep on reading: Shawn Mendes single by choice.....»»

Defiant Australia PM Turnbull refuses to ‘give in to bullies’

SYDNEY -- Defiant Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull on Thursday vowed not to "give in to bullies" in the face of a new leadership challenge, but said he will quit politics if his party no longer supports him.   Former home affairs minister Peter Dutton, an ex-police officer and right-wing conservative, said he was confident he now had the numbers to unseat Turnbull, considered a moderate.   And with senior ministers defecting, Turnbull's near three-year grip on power is tenuous despite surviving a snap ballot on his leadership on Tuesday, winning the vote 48-35. He said Dutton had yet to prove he has majority backing from the Liberal Party -- a requireme...Keep on reading: Defiant Australia PM Turnbull refuses to ‘give in to bullies’.....»»

FIBA WORLD CUP ASIAN QUALIFIERS: Unapologetic Romeo will defend Gilas to the very bitter end

BOCAUE, BULACAN --- Terrence Romeo was defiant and unaplogetic after Gilas Pilipinas figured in an ugly brawl against Austrlia Monday at the Philippine Arena here for the 2019 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers. With four minutes to go in the third period and the Boomers up by 31, an incident involving RR Pogoy and Chris Goulding sparked an ugly free for fall. Gilas' benched was cleared as Pinoys started to go after the visiting Australians. When the dust settled, a total of 13 players were ejected, four on the part of the Boomers and nine from the Philippines. The game ended via default in favor of the Australians. Both teams declined to give statements and FIBA will review the situation for possible penalties but as Gilas was stuck in its locker, star guard Terrence Romeo sent a tweet out, saying that the Gilas boys were ready to defend one another. Romeo also had none of the people calling them an embarrassment. "Dun sa mga kapwa namin players na nag sasabing embarrassing kami wala kaming paki alam sa inyo," the fiery Romeo said. "Kami magka-teammate sa loob kailangan namin mag-tulungan," he added. Here's the full set of tweets. FIBA should have an official response in the coming days regarding the incident.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»
