emma’s ’do over

It wasn’t difficult to spot Dame Emma Thompson (60) out in London while filming new movie Cruella! Although the British star wasn’t sporting her usual platinum blonde bob, she was unmistakable even in her role as an evil baroness in the live-action prequel of the classic 101 Dalmatians. The Sense and Sensibility star will appear alongside La La Land actress Emma Stone (30) ,who will take on the role of villain Cruella de Vil. Little else has been revealed about the film as it’s not set for release until May 2021, but with two Academy Award-winning actresses, it’s sure to be a must-watch movie!…

from the editor

With the Rugby W orld Cup upon us, we’ve gone a little footy mad in this issue – Nici Wickes has been in the kitchen testing recipes that ar e perfect for tucking into during those later kick-of f times; we’ve spoken to one of our favourites – Sir Graham Henry – about his latest endeavour , and Jenny-May Clarkson, who will be reporting fr om Japan for TVNZ, has brought us up to speed with her exciting new chapter when she r eturns home. But even if the W orld Cup hasn’t made it onto your radar , I’m sure you’ll find something to cheer your day in this issue. This week I’ve loved hearing about Tessa Duder’s new book – my copy of Night Race to Kawau is particularly tatty…

jenny-may’s joy how new days have dawned

It’s a good thing Jenny-May Clarkson loves an early start. After bringing us the day’s sports headlines on 1 News for the past 13 years, the former Silver Fern is bidding the 6pm team farewell – but not before she ends on a high, travelling to Japan to report on the Rugby World Cup. For two weeks she’ll be in the thick of the action. And when she returns on September 30, she’ll be taking the seat left vacant by Daniel Faitaua on Breakfast, working on the news desk alongside hosts Hayley Holt and John Campbell, and Matty McLean on weather. She couldn’t be more thrilled. It was just six months ago that Jenny-May bravely revealed to the Weekly the huge emotional struggle she’d been battling off-camera – and sometimes, without viewers even…

a day in the life of jenny-may

3am I hit the alarm and get out of bed, then do 10 to 15 minutes of mindfulness. 3.15am Do 10 to 15 minutes of gratitude practice. 3.30am Do 10 to 15 minutes of exercise in the lounge – maybe some squats or push-ups. If I’m ahead of schedule, I’ll go to the garage [where they have a small gym set up] and do a bit more. On the weekends, I’m in the garage or off for a run up the maunga nearby home. 3.45am Hit the shower, which I do cold now – there’s a lot of science around it! 4am Leave the house, get in the car, put a podcast on [Deepak Chopra and Eckhart Tolle are among her current favourites] and drive to work. 4.30am Arrive at work and check in with…

balmoral blunder meghan’s major mistake

When you’re a British royal, there’s one golden rule: never, ever upset the Queen. It’s looking like that’s a lesson Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, needs to learn in a hurry after she snubbed Her Majesty’s invitation to join the family on holiday at Balmoral, a decision that reportedly left her husband’s grandmother hurt and disappointed. Meghan, Prince Harry and their son Archie were invited to spend some time at the Queen’s Scottish residence during the British summer break, along with other members of the royal family. But they said no. According to a spokeswoman for the Sussexes, they were “too busy”, and four-month-old Archie was “too young” to make the trip north. But the excuses didn’t make sense given that the previous month they’d taken Archie to the Spanish island of Ibiza, and…

a bloody good cause sir graham’s benchmark

Sir Graham Henry is keen to stay out of trouble. Not that he’s ever really been in any, but retirement has always been something of a dirty word for the former All Blacks coach. So, in between enjoying the little slice of paradise he’s carved out on Waiheke Island with his wife Lady Raewyn, Graham’s always been happy to lend himself to different projects and causes. “Keeps me off the streets and gives me something to do!” he says down the phone to the Weekly with a chuckle. He’s currently enjoying a glorious, cloudless sky in Queenstown, just days before jetting off to Japan for the Rugby World Cup. And it’s what else but rugby that’s led Graham (73) to front his latest charitable campaign. He’s teamed up with the New Zealand Blood…
