Jamies teases, Spencer pleases, Binky receives it:
The show will follow Cox as she plays Jules, a newly divorced ‘cougar’ who, after some convincing, decides to put herself back on the market. But the dating scene is now is a little different than it was the last time she was single which leads to comedy mishaps and sexual shenanigans.
In honour of our favourite Friend, we’ve decided to turn the spotlight on her and tell you a few things you might not know.
2. Back when Friends was just beginning, she was originally cast as Rachel. Can’t really imagine that, can you? Thankfully the casting decision was changed to see her in the role of neurotic, cleaning obsessed Monica Gellar. Take a look at Monica refusing to admit that she’s ill.
3. She regularly raises awareness of epidomolusis bullosa and the profits from an eyeshadow palette she designed go towards research for a cure.
4. On the day of her fifth wedding anniversary, Courteney went into labour with daughter Coco who was eventually born the day after. It was Courteney’s 40th birthday two days later.
5. She puts her spontaneous nature down to her star sign. “I’m a Gemini, and I get so bored so easily. I mean, I have moved six times in the last eight years.”
6. Courteney met her husband David Arquette on the set of Scream. He said that he turned down the lead role so that he would get to kiss her as her character’s love interest, Dewey. Awww. Both of them will be returning for Scream 4.
7. When she got married she changed her name to Courteney Cox-Arquette but in order to honour her father Richard after he died, she dropped the Arquette.
8. Courteney gave up a college degree in architecture and interior design so that she could focus on modelling and acting full time. So smart, beautiful and talented? Yeah, so what? We were in the same situation once – we gave up successful careers in McDonalds to be full time hand models.
9. As well as being a talented actress, Courteney is also pretty musical and can play the drums and the piano.
10. She has admitted to using Botox but said it made her very unhappy (not that you could tell). Talking to Marie Clare, Courteney said, “It’s not that I haven’t tried Botox – but I hated it. You know you’ve messed up when people who are close to you say, “Whoa, what are you doing?”‘
We have always loved her (apart from when she didn’t break down in uncontrollable convulsive sobbing when Diana died.)
But recently, there’s been a spate of documentaries and dramas about HRH, including the five specials currently airing on Channel 4 and The Queen in 3D a few weeks ago. So we thought we better give you a few facts about ol’ Liz Windsor.
1. The Queen is the third longest reigning monarch of Great Britain there’s ever been, just behind George III and Queen “We Are Not Amused” Victoria at 57 years. Bet she gets RSI from all that waving.
2. Her governess Marion Crawford, nicknamed Crawfie was the first royal servant to sell her story to the press, publishing a book called The Little Princesses: The Story of the Queen’s Childhood by her Nanny, which caused her to be subsequently banished from the court and never spoken to again. Talk to the hand because one isn’t listening. Read More…
At 41, she is best known for her roles on the television series Home Improvement, Baywatch, and V.I.P. Then there is the eleven-time record for Playboy Magazine cover, and the fact that she is the most downloaded woman on the internet.
And what is one of People Magazine’s 100 Most Beautiful People in the World up to these days? Kicking it with Joe Swash, of course. So, to help you brush up on your Pammy know-how, we have compiled a list of things you might not have known about the mother, actress, entrepreneur, and sex goddess. Read More…
Sure, he was a bit odd. But thanks to MJ, we have classics like Thriller, Billy Jean, Beat It and Bad.
Ultimately selling 750m albums worldwide, with 13 Grammy Awards to his name, Michael Jackson was one of the most commercially successful and influential entertainers of all time.
Four months after his death, This is It has premiered (check out our inspired 5 Most Shameless Movie Cash Ins Ever).
The much-anticipated documentary features rehearsal footage of the London O2 Arena comeback concert which never happened.
So whether you are a die hard fan or merely a pop culture patron, OTB brings you things you may not know about Michael Jackson. Read More…
One of its rising stars, acclaimed for his work on Brokeback Mountain, The Dark Knight (for which he won a posthumous Oscar for Best Supporting Actor), he was working on Terry Gilliam’s The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (review here) when he met his untimely death.
Imaginarium is out on the 16th of October with Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell stepping in to fill the gaps that Ledger’s death left in the filming. So, in memory of Heath Ledger, here are 10 things you might not have known about the multi-talented star. Read More…
Robert Carlyle is landing back on our screens this week as maths extraordinaire, Dr Nicholas Rush, in Sky1’s brand new series, Stargate Universe.
Amazingly, we have to wait until nearly half-way through the second episode for him to start lecturing the other cast members on the trials of a childhood in working-class Glasgow.
However when he’s not waxing lyrical about the ship-yard, he is doing some good acting and adds a nice British flavour to a very slick American sci-fi.
So we decided to grant him the honour of an OTB lowdown. The timing was perfect. Read More…
After his superhuman efforts last week, it seems that Derren Brown is set to become the national treasure we have been craving since David Beckham stopped playing football and took up soccer.
Following in the footsteps of countless flavour-of-the-months before him, we at OTB are answering the questions on confused lips up and down the country…
Who the hell is Derren Brown – and why does he freak us out so much? Read More…
Dorian Gray’s Ben Barnes is a rising star and has definitely peaked the attention of the ladies of the OTB office.
We can’t decide if we like him because of the luscious hair, his dimpled chin or the fact that he’s joined the pack of Brit totties that are making an impression on Hollywood.
Whatever the reason: it’s deep and it’s real.
Robert Pattinson could be old news. Probably not though. But James McAvoy should be worried.
When we first laid eyes on Ben in 2007′s Stardust we knew it was the start of big things for him and we anticipate that he’ll soon be the talk of the town so we thought we’d get in there first.
So until the restraining order gets cancelled and we can get an interview for you, we hope you’ll enjoy our top 10 facts about Ben Barnes.
You’re welcome. Read More…
LA-born Zooey Deschanel has been (quietly) dazzling us on screen for the best part of a decade.
Since making her film debut in 1998′s Veronica’s Closet, she’s opted for more obscure productions, later taking roles in Almost Famous, Elf and guesting in ganja drama Weeds.
This year she has her first major lead in the superb (500) Days of Summer opposite old pal Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and is rumoured to be appearing with sister Emily in Bones.
We all love her with her blue doe eyes and effortless grace, but she remains something of an enigma. OTB set off to discover what she’s all about. Just don’t mention the Katy Perry comparisons.
1. Acting is just a day job for Zooey. She plays the piano, banjo and ukulele, appearing in jazz cabaret act If All The Stars Were Pretty Babies with fellow thesp Samantha Shelton. Her first album with band She & Him, named Volume One, came out last year.
2. Deschanel is named after the male character in J.D. Salinger novella Franny and Zooey. Read More…
