Shay Mitchell covers Esquire Philippines

Shay Mitchell is gracing this month’s cover of Esquire Philippines, and she looks beautiful! Donning black lingerie, the Pretty Little Liars star shows some skin in the black-and-white cover. The international magazine dubs her “The Sexiest Woman Alive” — and we couldn’t agree more!

The ultra sexy black and white cover also features quotes from inside the magazine, including one from Shay. “When she talks more about her passions and philosophies, she becomes more fierce, more curt, less polite. It’s very sexy.” Is she chatting about her on-screen counterpart Emily Fields? Because those insights totally apply to the decisive, independent character who has seen such growth over the last four seasons on Pretty Little Liars. Or might she be talking about someone else? There are so many cool, powerful women who fit that description.

Anorexia 'murdered my wife' says Downton Abbey actor


Anorexia kills middle aged women and does not just affect teenage girls, says Downton Abbey actor David Robb as he said his wife was “murdered” by the eating disorder.

In his first interview about the suicide of his wife, the actress Briony McRoberts, Robb describes anorexia as a “silent killer” and a condition so “insidious” it can become stronger than relationships.

McRoberts - who became a childhood star, appearing in Scottish drama Take the High Road, The Bill and Eastenders - died after she jumped in front of a train near her home on July 17 last year.

In the months before her death she had been warned by her friend Joanna Lumley, the actress, that she was dying and at risk of organ failure when her weight plummeted to six and a half stone. She was 56 and three weeks away from starting treatment following encouragement by her husband.

“She had a future – she hadn’t written ‘Today’s the day,” Robb, 66, told the Evening Standard.

“She was murdered by anorexia. It isn’t a self-centred teenage disease. It kills people – middle aged women.”

Soccer Aid will only lead to one winner at Old Trafford

Old Trafford has seen many legends, but now isn’t the time for the professionals.

Stars from music, TV and film will unite to play a football match like no other at the famous stadium in aid of UNICEF children’s charity.

As Assistant Manager for England Robbie Williams will hope to sing because he’s winning, with help from team-mates including TV presenter Paddy McGuinness, McFly’s Danny Jones and comedian John Bishop.

Michael Sheen skippers the Rest of the World, managed by Chelsea’s José Mourinho.

Michael could use his acting skill to channel his inner Sir Alex Ferguson to motivate his lads, including chef Gordon Ramsay and Westlife’s Nicky Byrne.

“I admit there are scores to settle,” says Robbie Williams, who created the charity event.

“Leading the England team, I will be making sure we defend that trophy against the Rest of the World.”

His combative stance is matched by rival player Gordon Ramsay.

“After being stretchered off in 2012, I’m determined to come back fighting!”

And, of course, the match will lead to one other winner – UNICEF, which helps struggling children in developing countries.

Since its launch in 2006, Soccer Aid has helped to raise more than £12million for the charity.

Dead Poets Society: where are they now?

"Dead Poets Society" was released 25 years ago, and it's a bit of a miracle it got made in the first place. Honestly, how many Hollywood movies have "poet" in the title and offer a Latin phrase -- Carpe diem! Seize the day! -- as the biggest takeaway? But this film about an unconventional English teacher and his students at a private boys' school during the 1950s became a classic (it also won the Oscar for Best Screenplay). In honor of this venerable anniversary, we're taking a look at the cast and where they are now.

Marco Reus ruled out of World Cup for Germany after ankle injury

Germany's World Cup hopes suffered a severe blow on Saturday when their midfielder Marco Reus was ruled out of the tournament with an ankle injury sustained in their final warm-up game.

Germany, who take on Ghana, Portugal and United States in Group G, leave for Brazil on Saturday evening with the 22-year-old Sampdoria defender Shkodran Mustafi receiving an unexpected last-minute call-up following Reus' injury.

Reus turned his ankle shortly before the break in their 6-1 victory over Armenia on Friday in Mainz, partially tearing the anterior ligament above his left ankle on the eve of the team's departure for Brazil.

“Both for him and for us it is extremely bitter,” said the coach Joachim Löw. “Marco was in top form and both in the training camp and in the friendlies against Cameroon and Armenia left an outstanding impression. He had played a central role in our planning for Brazil.”

First Footage From 'The Book of Negroes' Looks Promising - Take a Look...

Principal photography for Clement Virgo's much-anticipated film adaptation of author Lawrence Hill’s award-winning bestseller, "The Book of Negroes," is complete, as the project now moves into the next phase of the production process.

Aunjanue Ellis, Louis Gossett Jr., Cuba Gooding Jr., and Lyriq Bent are all members of the starring cast of the project from Conquering Lion Pictures, Out of Africa Entertainment and Entertainment One (eOne) Television.

Ben Chaplin, Allan Hawko and Jane Alexander also feature, amongst many others.

Boasting one of the strongest female characters in recent fiction, the novel's synopsis reads:

Abducted as an 11-year-old child from her village in West Africa and forced to walk for months to the sea in a coffle—a string of slaves— Aminata Diallo is sent to live as a slave in South Carolina. But years later, she forges her way to freedom, serving the British in the Revolutionary War and registering her name in the historic “Book of Negroes.” This book, an actual document, provides a short but immensely revealing record of freed Loyalist slaves who requested permission to leave the US for resettlement in Nova Scotia, only to find that the haven they sought was steeped in an oppression all of its own. Aminata’s eventual return to Sierra Leone—passing ships carrying thousands of slaves bound for America—is an engrossing account of an obscure but important chapter in history that saw 1,200 former slaves embark on a harrowing back-to-Africa odyssey.

13 (5) Awesome Celebrity Male Cat Lovers [CAT POST]


Yesterday, one of my guy friends was recounting to me how, when he goes on a date and reveals that he has two cats, women tend to look at him like he's a pariah. He says it gets even worse with onlinedating, where a high percentage of profiles end with some version of the line, "Cat guys need not apply." All I have to say about this is—ladies, WHAT?!?!? In my mind, that's like saying, "I don't want a guy who's kind, intelligent, has a good job, and will make a good parent one day." Not that all guys who like cats are the above. But guys who appreciate cats tend to be gentle, plus they're mature enough to take care of a living thing. They can put up with a heavy dose of temperamentality. Not to mention the fact that they're willing to work for affection while dog guys—let's be honest—want someone who will slobber all over them the instant they meet. Relax, I'm kidding. Sort of.

Cat guys get no respect. But they should! So after the jump, 13 awesome celebrity dudes who love them some cats.

Teenage Girl Stabs Mother in Another Slender Man-Inspired Attack

Please let this not be a new trend in violence. We really don't need another.

A woman from Hamilton, Ohio, was recently stabbed multiple times by her 13-year-old daughter wielding a knife. The woman, who sustained minor injuries to her face, neck, and back, stated her daughter was obsessed with the fictional internet character Slender Man, the inspiration behind the brutal stabbing at the hands of two 12-year-old girls last week.

The unnamed woman was attacked by her daughter upon returning home. "I came home one night from work and she was in the kitchen waiting for me and she was wearing a mask — a white mask," the woman said. "She had her hood up and had her hands covered with her sleeves and the mask."

"She was someone else during that attack," the mother added. According to the mother the teenager has been dealing with "mental issues" and her writing was becoming darker and darker, mentioning demons, killing, and of course Slender Man.

Authorities say that the teenage girl, who is currently in a juvenile detention center, does not recall what happened the evening she attacked her mother.

Andy Murray appoints Amélie Mauresmo as his new coach


British number one Andy Murray has appointed former women's world number one Amelie Mauresmo as his new coach.
Mauresmo, 34, is currently France's Fed Cup captain and will initially work with Murray for the grass court season.

"I'm excited by the possibilities of the new partnership and Amelie is someone I have always looked up to and admired," the Scot said.
"She's faced adversity plenty of times in her career, but was an amazing player and won major titles, including Wimbledon.

Mauresmo said that Murray had first contacted her "a few weeks ago" and it was "a bit of surprise".
The Frenchwoman added: "I guess it is a big story and a step forward [for female coaches] but that is not my big concern right now.
"I'm happy about the new challenge. I want to help Andy, it is the only thing I have in mind right now."

In terms of male players working with female coaches, Russia's Andrei Chesnokov was coached by Tatiana Naumko in the 1990s and Tim Mayotte travelled with Billie Jean King in the 1980s.
Among current players, Uzbekistan's Denis Istomin, the world number 49, is coached by his mother Klaudiya.
Jimmy Connors and Marat Safin were other leading names of the past to have worked with their mothers.

Bow @ this flawless choice Andy! Already seeing comments about how she can't possibly understand the men's game, ready to see her slay and prove them wrong!

'Roswell' 15-year cast reunion photo

The ATX Television Festival staged a 15-year anniversary reunion of The WB’s Roswell on Sunday. Stars Shiri Appleby, Jason Behr, Brendan Fehr, Majandra Delfino and Nick Wechsler were reportedly there, along with creator Jason Katims. The sci-fi series debuted 1999 and ran for three seasons (the last on UPN) before getting axed due to soft ratings in 2002. At one point in its run, fans sent The WB Tabasco sauce (which the show’s aliens liked to eat) to try and sway the network to keep the show going. Random guest appearance: Roswell fan Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi (Jersey Shore) asked if the cast believes in aliens — and Appleby and Delfino apparently said yes.

Racist Roid Rhapsody '14: Was Justin Fixed by Jesus?! Star Baptized in NYC Bathtub!!

Justin Bieber turned to the Lord while being shaken down over his racist videos -- and TMZ has learned he washed away his sins with a baptism performed in a bathroom.

Pastor Carl Lentz -- who works with Bieber in NYC -- tells us he spent a week doing intense Bible study with Justin last month ... in the wake of being extorted over the videos.

As we previously reported -- JB's team was contacted 2 months ago by a man in possession of the videos and wanted a million dollar payday or else he'd go public.

We're told Bieber's religious resurgence focused on studying Bible passages and attending services ... culminating in an actual baptism performed in the bathtub of one of the singer's friends.

Why a bathtub, you ask? We're told JB previously checked out a bunch of churches for the dip -- but his cover was blown every time and he wanted to keep the whole thing private.

Justin's now got a clean slate with God -- but the public is a harder nut to crack.



If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

The season-five finalist had performed as part of the program's All-American Summer Concert Series and when asked by the show's hosts to sing a patriotic song in honor of D-Day (the game-changing World War II invasion by Allied troops marked its 70th anniversary on June 6), was clearly flustered by the suggestion.

"I'm off the clock," he said. "I'm going to watch 'y'all."

Kristen Wiig: LA terrified me, I'm writing a new script!

Kristen Wiig was afraid of LA when she first moved to the city. The American actress has fast become one of the top names in comedy thanks to her work on Saturday Night Live and movies such as Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.

Before finding her comedy feet Kristen was studying for an art degree in Arizona, but she dropped out once she caught the acting bug.

"When I first moved, there was 'the dream', as there is for a lot of people. Then I got really scared. I moved there and I was like, 'Oh, I don't have any experience,' and I was surrounded by people a lot younger than I am, a lot better looking than I am, who've been acting for a while, who've been taking classes, who already have agents and I just felt like, 'Oh, there's a lot of work I have to do,'" she recounted to the British edition of Glamour magazine.

It didn't take long for people to notice her talents, which include writing as well as acting. While Kristen, 40, co-wrote the script for the hugely successful Bridesmaids with the help of Annie Mumolo, she often doubts her abilities when it comes to penning comedic moments.

"I think writing is probably where I have the least confidence. When I write with Annie, it's fun and we laugh. Of course, it's hard to figure the story and stuff, but once that's done and you're going through it, figuring out the dialogue and adding the jokes and stuff, that's more fun," she explained.
