remember when

Ten years ago, the SAG Awards (see p. 24) were all about Angelina Jolie’s visible—but unconfirmed—bump as she sipped water and canoodled with Brad Pitt. Best actors were Daniel Day-Lewis, Julie Christie, The Sopranos’Edie Falco and James Gandolfini, and 30 Rock’s Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey, who said. ”I want to thank SAG for considering me an actor at all.” Nominated for two gongs, Cate Blanchett didn’t take one home—but did get to welcome son Ignatius three months later.

the right to fight!

AFTER A YEAR IN WHICH gender issues pulled into often horribly disturbing focus, women had plenty to speak about to large crowds at the second annual Women’s March on Jan. 20. “This isn’t just a moment or a march, it’s a movement!” posted Eva Longoria, who is expecting her first child with husband José Bastón. She spoke at the Los Angeles rally, where one of the estimated 600,000 marchers’ signs read: “When it’s 2018 and U still marching for basic-ass rights.” A year after President Trump’s inauguration, this march focused on mobilising US women to use their voting power, aiming to get a million new voters registered. And Trump was on board ... sort of. “A perfect day for all Women to March,” he tweeted. “Get out there now to celebrate the…

‘upsetting’ divorce

ACCEPTING HIS FIRST ever Golden Globe—for Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or Motion Picture for Television—at the 75th Awards on Jan. 7, actor Ewan McGregor said, “I want to take a moment to thank Eve, who always stood beside me for 22 years and my four children, I love you.” The tribute to wife Eve Mavrakis was surprising, given that in October it was revealed that McGregor, 46, and Mavrakis, 51, had separated in May and that the actor was in a relationship with Fargo co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead, whom he also thanked in the speech. The acknowledgement of both wife and girlfriend is even more confounding given the context of Star Wars actor McGregor filing for divorce barely a fortnight later, on Jan. 19, from…

NOT ONLY CAN ED SHEERAN celebrate seven straight weeks at No. 1 on the ARIA charts for his single“Perfect”, but the UK singer has a more life-changing reason for being cheerful.“Got myself a fiancée just before New Year,” posted Sheeran, 26, on Jan. 20. “We are very happy and in love.” The fiancée in question is Cherry Seaborn, a 25-year-old risk advisory consultant, who inspired Sheeran’s chart-topping song after they danced“barefoot on the grass”at pal James Blunt’s Ibiza house. A couple since 2015—their first date was to one of Taylor Swift’s famous Fourth of July parties—Sheeran and Seaborn have been friends since they were tweens, a fact referenced in Sheeran’s collaboration with Swift,“End Game”, in which he also raps,“This end game is the one / With four words on the tip…

another royal wedding

THE YOUNGER DAUGHTER OF PRINCE Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, Princess Eugenie, 27, will marry her boyfriend of seven years, hospitality manager Jack Brooksbank, 31, according to a statement released by Buckingham Palace on Jan. 22.“We are just so happy and over the moon for what is to come,” Brooksbank told the BBC. Introduced by friends in the Swiss ski resort of Verbier, the couple will marry later this year in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle —as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to do in May. Brooksbank“is a really lovely, very kind, down-to-earth man,” says a family friend.“He is great fun.” MCGREGOR: GETTY IMAGES (3); INSTAGRAM; ENGAGED, FROM TOP: BACKGRID; GETTY IMAGES (2)…

evil next door

MORNING DARKNESS still blanketed the streets of suburban Perris, California, on Sunday Jan. 14 as a window began to creep open at the brown stucco and stone house at 160 Muir Woods Road. A 17-year-old girl and her younger sibling slipped out into the yard, armed with a deactivated mobile phone—their only hope for salvation. Terrified, the younger child soon turned back home, but the elder pressed on, determined to see through a desperate plan she had painstakingly devised with her brothers and sisters for more than two years. At 5.53 AM, she dialled 911 and told the dispatcher that her 12 siblings were being held inside their home against their will, and that some of them were chained. When police met up with her, they were shocked at the…
