han—no longer solo

Let the debate begin: the new Han Solo versus the old. Can any actor re-create Harrison Ford’s iconic character without it feeling a bit odd? After all, unlike the various Superman or Batman movies, we’ve only ever seen the one “Han,” and he was a pretty good one at that! Alden Ehrenreich is a talented actor, but he definitely has a challenging road ahead to win over the hard-core fans of this franchise, with #notmysolo already trending in the lead-up to the film’s premiere. This week we chat to Alden about stepping into the role and the advice he was given by Harrison Ford (page 40). Star Wars fans, let us know what you think of the new Han.

becoming royal

Meghan Markle had just walked down the aisle of Westminster Abbey—the historic London church where almost all of England’s kings and queens have been crowned since William the Conqueror in 1066—when Grenadier Guards played the royal fanfare on trumpet to signal the arrival of the current monarch, 91-year-old Queen Elizabeth. Rising from her seat alongside her fiancé, Prince Harry, Meghan heard the notes of a familiar tune—“America (My Country ’Tis of Thee).” But instead of the lyrics she would have heard growing up in Los Angeles—“My country ’tis of thee, sweet land of liberty/ Of thee I sing”—she joined the congregation in singing the words to the British National Anthem (from which the American song takes it’s melody): “God save our gracious Queen, long live our noble Queen/ God save…

shocking marriage secrets

“To me she is the most beautiful woman in the world”—Colin Firth, on wife Livia The unexpected marital drama surrounding Colin Firth and his wife of almost 21 years, Livia, reads like the plotline of a film the Oscar-winning actor might star in—a woman is caught in a love triangle between her famous British husband and her spurned Italian paramour. But for the Firths, the scenario is all too real. On March 8, an Italian newspaper revealed that Livia, 48, had filed a police report accusing journalist Marco Brancaccia, 55, of sending her “frightening” messages and stalking her. Then, in a surprising statement, the normally ultra-private Firths revealed that Livia had had a romance with Brancaccia. “A few years ago Colin and Livia privately made the decision to separate. During that time…

heart songs

AHEAD OF HOSTING THE iHeartRadio Awards with co-host DJ Khaled on March 11, model Hailey Baldwin was keeping butterflies at bay. “I’m nervous about how calm I am,” the model told WHO. “I’ve been watching past iHearts and trying to get spiffy with the prompter reading.” At the fun-filled event held at the Forum in Los Angeles, outspoken rapper Cardi B had no problem going off-script. “I want to thank my fans because even when I’m wrong they be like, ‘She’s still right,’” she said, accepting her trophy for Best New Artist. “And I want to thank my haters, too. Because, ha-ha-ha, they be downloading my stuff so they can hear it and talk crap about it.” Bon Jovi was honoured with the first Icon Award. “We’ve been at this game a…

assault drama

TOMMY LEE AND HIS SON BRANDON ARE both speaking out about a March 5 fight that saw police called and Tommy, 55, knocked out and treated at a local hospital. “My heart is broken. You can give your kids everything they could ever want in their entire lives and they can still turn against you. Good job, Brandon. Great son!” he tweeted with a photo of his swollen lip. “My fiancée and I were in bed when my son busted into the room and assaulted me ... He knocked me unconscious.” Brandon, 21, tells a different story. A source told TMZ he was “defending himself” and that Lee was intoxicated. “I’m devastated at the events of the last several days that have been a result of my father’s alcoholism,” Brandon tells…

taking a break

IT’S HARD TO KEEP UP, BUT Selena Gomez is not dating Justin Bieber at the moment. “They’re not talking,” a source told the New York Post. “She has trust issues. He has trust issues. There’s a lot going on there. They do this all the time. They get into arguments.” The two stars, who first dated in 2010 but have never officially defined their relationship since reuniting late last year,“are always on and off,” a source tells WHO. Bieber wasn’t photographed when he celebrated his 24th birthday early on March 1 with Gomez, 25, and he later headed out for a go-kart excursion followed by dinner at Mastro’s. But they were spotted attending the same church service separately on March 7. Gomez appeared to be in high spirits as she hugged a friend…
