love me tender!

Festival season continued last week as stars gathered in London for the BFI London Film Festival, promoting their new films and hoping to get their name in the mix for awards contention. George Clooney, 60, may be the one lighting up the big screen, but as he walked the red carpet for The Tender Bar screening, it was his gorgeous wife Amal, 43, who stole the show as she oozed old-Hollywood glamour in a custom 16Arlington sequined gown and matching feather shrug. The couple, who share four-year-old twins Alexander and Ella, looked more in love than ever, and human rights lawyer Amal only had praise for her husband as she opened up about how they both balanced their busy careers in lockdown. “It’s probably like many families where both parents work,” she shared.…

He may no longer play professional rugby, but that hasn’t slowed All Blacks great Conrad Smith down. In this week’s issue, he shares the details of his Kiwi homecoming, as well as his passion for So They Can. It’s a charity that was set up by mum-of-four Cassandra Treadwell, who I met many years ago when I interviewed her. You meet many people as a journalist and some you never forget. And for me, Cass is one of them. I vividly remember her describing her visit to a Kenyan rubbish dump. After a truck made a delivery, she watched in horror as the dump came alive with children, scrambling through the rubbish in search of food. It was an experience that made her determined to make a difference in their…

conrad’s back in the saddle! i won’t let the kids down

He had a stellar career that saw him on the winning team of two Rugby World Cups, but now Conrad Smith is switching codes and is set to embark on his next big challenge. And this time, he’s not doing it for a shiny gold trophy – but to save lives. The former All Black is competing in the Lake Taupo¯ Cycle Challenge, which is a surprise even to him, because he is supposed to be living overseas, but instead he and his family have returned to New Zealand. ‘Once you see what is going on over there, you can’t forget those things’ Due to the pandemic, Conrad, 40, and his wife Lee-Anne Snowdon, 36, moved their family back home to New Plymouth earlier this year after five years in the mountainous province…

billie’s double loss

American Horror Story star Billie Lourd has revealed just how hard it was to lose her famous mother Carrie Fisher and iconic grandmother Debbie Reynolds a day apart almost five years ago. “It was brutal,” tells Billie, 29, adding that her late mum and grandma were her “favourite people” and that she misses them every day. Star Wars actress Carrie, 60, suffered a heart attack on a plane on December 23, 2016 and died in hospital four days later. Singing in the Rain star Debbie, 84, died of a stroke the day after her daughter’s death, leaving Billie traumatised and bereft. Billie, who gave birth to her first child, son Kingston, in September last year, says she tried to avoid living in Carrie and Debbie’s shadows while they were alive. “Now I am…

His siblings want him out. His nephew thinks he’s a threat to the family business. It seems that his mum is the only relative standing by Prince Andrew as he faces the worst crisis of his life. The Queen has agreed to cough up the exorbitant legal fees – expected to run to millions of dollars – for Andrew to fight allegations that he had sex with an underage girl traffi cked to him by his late pal Jeffrey Epstein. Virginia Roberts Giuffre, now 38, is suing Andrew for rape and sexual assault she says happened when she was 17. The Duke of York vehemently denies the claims. Her Majesty, 95, also provided a haven for her second son when a New York court was trying to serve him with papers regarding…
