oscars buzz

It was the end to an unusual awards season filled with Zoom ceremonies and virtual red carpets, but the Oscars felt like a glimpse of life before Covid as the first in-person, mask-free event of the year. The intimate show, held in Los Angeles, had only 170 guests in the audience, with the usual who’s who of the best and brightest in Hollywood cut down to only the nominees and their one guest. Minari star Yuh-Jung Youn, 73, won Best Supporting Actress, making her the first Korean to win the category. But she seemed more impressed to meet Brad Pitt, who presented the award, than the with the honour itself. “Where were you when we were filming in person?” she joked with him. “I’m very honoured to meet you.” And she wasn’t the…

from the editor

Most of us know the benefits of exercise – not just for our physical health, but for our mental health, too. But there are a myriad of reasons (excuses?!) we tell ourselves in order to avoid it. I know for me, a smoothie and a walk to work in the morning sets me up for the day ahead and I absolutely love reformer Pilates. The truth is, however, I’ve let both slide this year. But after reading our cover story with the wonderful Wendy Petrie, as well as other stars who share their exercise tips and tricks, I’m certainly inspired to try to find a way to incorporate it back into my lifestyle. For me, it’s about attending a certain number of classes in a month or walking a certain number…

she’s going places! wendy’s road to recovery

When the going gets tough, Wendy Petrie gets running. Lacing up her trainers and pounding the pavements helps the TVNZ newsreader to deal with stress and it was a strategy she found particularly helpful last year, when she was coping with the impact of Covid-19, then losing her job presenting the 6pm news. “Through that first lockdown, I was running pretty much every day. I needed to get out of the house and have some time out from the busyness of life and kids, and the general stress of everything,” says the mum-of-three. “Last year was really hard for a lot of people and I know that for me, running helped. It instantly brightens my day when I have done some exercise in the morning. And it helps me in every…

fit for the job!  let’s get physical

NICKY STYRIS GYM Last year’s level 4 lockdown was a difficult time for many people, and for Newshub sports presenter Nicky Styris, it brought her back to one of the lowest points in her life. As a normally active person, Nicky struggled after giving birth to her daughters Hannah, now 27, and Emison, 14. Stuck at home with a newborn while her body recovered, she realised how important physical activity was to her mental health. “Anyone who has had children knows that it is a stressful time in your life and I found that once I could start moving and being active again that I really noticed the mental changes. I had a lot more energy, I was a lot more relaxed and I was just a nicer person to myself and other…

charles in charge his bold plan for the monarchy

He’s still grieving the loss of his father and hurting from comments made in his youngest son’s bombshell TV interview. But now the time has come for Prince Charles to take charge and make changes that will forever reshape the royal family. And that may include completely ditching Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, from The Firm and closing the door on any opportunities for them to ever return as senior working royals. Charles has long made it clear that he believes the royal family needs “streamlining” to cut costs. He has already been taking steps towards a slimmed down monarchy – including 10 years ago orchestrating the removal of security from his nieces, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, who aren’t working royals. But the death of his father Prince Philip has…

queen’s comforter

His mother is still deep in mourning for her husband of 73 years, so Prince Charles is stepping into his dad’s shoes and helping the Queen with her workload. Government officials have been asked to designate him a role as his mother’s official “consort” following Prince Philip’s death. That means he will take on greater responsibility when it comes to major royal duties, such as accompanying the Queen, 95, to the State Opening of Parliament next week. Charles has joined the Queen at the ceremonial event before, following Philip’s retirement from public life in 2016. But this time, he will play a “more significant and active role”, which royal commentators say is a clear sign that he is preparing for becoming monarch. Meanwhile, the whole family is doing what they can to reduce…
