family day out

Michelle Williams and her brand new baby have finally made their public debut. The 40-year-old actress and her director husband, Thomas Kail, 42, quietly welcomed their first child together four months ago, but haven’t yet shared the baby’s name or gender. The sweet family appeared to be enjoying some downtime together, as they were pictured with shopping bags while boarding a water taxi in New York City. Alongside them, and clearly doting over her new sibling, was Michelle’s daughter, 14-year-old Matilda Ledger.

hugh’s scientology meeting revealed!

For Deborra-Lee Furness, the number one reason she fell in love with Hugh Jackman was because he’s a genuinely nice bloke. The downside is, she often worries her kind husband will be taken for a ride. New Idea has learnt that Deb’s latest concern is a budding friendship with Tom Cruise – and that Hugh might get sucked into his mate’s Scientology religion. “Hugh has always wanted to work with Tom and they’re spitballing action movie ideas,” says a longtime pal. “Hugh nearly replaced Val Kilmer on an abandoned project with Tom 10 years ago, so this is long overdue.” The Aussie actor, 52, has got a couple of scripts he wants to pitch to Tom, 58, and his team. “He wants to get it right,” says the source – so much so…
