What better way to ensure copious press coverage for your new film than with a statement arrival? And turning up by boat to the Venice Film Festival would have to rule the waves, rivalled only by picture ops at that other seaside film festival—Cannes. Since its inception in 1932, Venice—the world’s longestrunning film festival—has lured many a Hollywood star to make a glitzy appearance. For this year’s constellation, see p. 28. editor@who.com COVER, BACHELOR: NETWORK TEN; THIS PAGE: GETTY IMAGES (6)…

angelina jolie ‘i don’t enjoy being sin gle’

PROFESSIONALLY, ANGELINA Jolie has hit her stride. Her latest directorial offering, First They Killed My Father, scored a standing ovation at Telluride Film Festival in Colorado on Sept. 2 with critics hailing it as an Oscar contender. Supported by her six children—Maddox, 16, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and 9-yearold twins Knox and Vivienne— she beamed at the premiere in a white long-sleeved gown with beaded detailing. Personally, however, the star has admitted she’s struggling: “Sometimes maybe it appears I am pulling it all together,” she told UK’s Sunday Telegraph. “But really I am just trying to get through my days.” Almost a year after filing for divorce from Brad Pitt after a 12-year relationship and two-year marriage, “I don’t enjoy being single,” added the 42-year-old. “It’s not something…

DIVORCE PROCEEDINGS between Melanie “Mel B” Brown and Stephen Belafonte continue to devolve into an ugly slanging match, with Belafonte alleging the ex-Spice Girl’s alcohol and cocaine abuse had been a “major issue” throughout their marriage. In documents filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court on Sept. 1, Belafonte referenced the drug abuse allegations in respect to his concerns for their children. “To make matters worse, my fear for the children’s safety was amplified due to the fact that Petitioner [Mel B] had fired the children’s nanny, who had been in the children’s lives since 2010 and I did not want Petitioner using drugs and drinking around the children, especially without anyone else present to care for the children,” stated Belafonte, 42. The father of the couple’s daughter, Madison, 6, and stepfather…

out of hiding

TEEN QUEENS Besties since high school, Anderson inspired, in part, Swift’s 2008 song “Fifteen”, with lyrics: “You sit in class next to a redhead named Abigail, and soon enough you’re ... laughing at the other girls who think they’re so cool.” ONLY A WEEK AFTER ROARING BACK INTO the limelight—on screen, at least—with the release of her first new music in three years, Taylor Swift has now emerged in person from her self-imposed publicity exile. The “Look What You Made Me Do” singer was snapped for the first time in ages at BFF Abigail Anderson’s Sept. 2 wedding to photographer Matt Lucier at a church on Martha’s Vineyard. While security kept curious onlookers at bay, an attentive Swift, 27, in a burgundy bridesmaid’s dress, helped her close friend climb the stairs in her…

‘TOTAL SHOCK’ First-time festivalgoer Aaron Joel Mitchell, 41, died when he ran into the Man Burn event on Sept. 2. Security tried in vain to save him. “We are just in shock, total shock,” said his mother, Johnnye Mitchell. FOR A DUST BOWL IN A DESERT, the Burning Man holds a strong pull for celebs keen to celebrate its culture. The chance to wear boots, sunglasses and not much else traditionally attracts Victoria’s Secret Angels, and Shanina Shaik, Alessandra Ambrosio and Sara Sampaio all worked their Mad Max vibe in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert along with some 70,000 other revellers from Aug. 27 to Sept. 4. “Burning Man is so dear to my heart,” wrote Shaik, who partied with fiancé DJ Ruckus. “A place where everyone is treated equally. I had the best…

‘we don’t speak’

CAITLYN JENNER HAS opened up about her fractured relationship with the Kardashians in a Sept. 4 interview withGood Morning Britain. The family supported Jenner, 67, when she came out as transgender in 2015, but her memoir,Secrets of My Life, opened old wounds, claiming ex-wife Kris knew more about her genderidentity crisis than she has publicly admitted. “I went overboard to be nice, to be friendly, to be open, but also tell my story and my side of the story,” insistedJenner. “Since the book came out, I’ve never talked to Kris again. Kim, I haven’t talked to in six, nine months, whatever it is. I love Kim. She’s a great person ... but like Kris, she is very opinionated, but that’s OK. I love that about her. It’s a big loss…
