Alwyn doesn't like talking about Taylor Swift in public

Actor Joe Alwyn, who is dating singer Taylor Swift, likes to keep his relationship as private as possible.

Alwyn says there is "a very clear line" for him of how much he should share about his relationship with Swift, reported by leading publication.

"I know what I feel about it. I think there's a very clear line as to what somebody should share, or feel like they have to share, and what they don't want to and shouldn't have to," he said in an interview to Esquire magazine.

The I knew you were trouble hitmaker and the Mary, Queen Of Scots star have been dating for over a year and a half.

A source told the publication that Swift is "the happiest she's ever been" with Alwyn.

"Joe has really showed her a different lifestyle and the value of privacy. He's very supportive of her career. Taylor is so much happier without her personal life in the open. She credits Joe for that and realizes how much better off she is," the source reported.

Grateful I got to be part of 'Ralph Breaks the Internet': Gadot

Actress Gal Gadot is happy about her film Ralph Breaks the Internet getting a Golden Globe nomination.

Ralph Breaks the Internet has earned a nomination in Best Animated film category. Ralph Breaks the Internet, which is a sequel to Wreck-It Ralph, is pitted against Incredibles 2, Isle of Dogs, Mirai and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

"Bucket list item checked off. Be a part of a musical number in a Disney movie," Gadot posted on her Instagram page.

"Also so happy to hear the film is nominated for Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature. So grateful I got to be part of this film," she added.

Amber Heard doesn't want to talk about Johny Depp

Actress Amber Heard feels "right" that she got separated from her former husband and actor Johnny Depp in 2017.

In an interview to a leading publication, Amber said, "I'm not going to talk about Johnny. I'm more interested in talking about the work I'm doing and the things I feel proud of. I stood up for myself, for what was right."

Amber got married to Johnny Depp in 2015 and in 2017, they divorced amid accusations that Depp had been abusive. After separation, she also donated her entire $7 million settlement to the ACLU and Children's Hospital Los Angeles, reported by leading publication.

She will be next seen in the forthcoming film Aquaman along with actor Jason Momoa.

Shane MacGowan responds to 'Christmas...' song row        

After getting criticised for using 'homophobic' lyrics in his song Fairytale of New York, singer Shane MacGowan defended himself saying the word was used to make the character's dialogue sound authentic.

MacGowan's song recently came under fire when two RTE radio DJ's criticised the use of the word "f****t". They found the lyrics as being insensitive to the gay community, claiming that the word was a "slur", and suggested the song should be censored, reported by media.

During his appearance on Virgin Media's Tonight Show MacGowan said, "The word was used by the character because it fitted with the way she would speak and with her character. She is not supposed to be a nice person, or even a wholesome person.

"She is a woman of a certain generation at a certain time in history and she is down on her luck and desperate. Her dialogue is as accurate as I could make it but she is not intended to offend."

However, MacGowan said that he had no problem with the song getting censored.

"If people don't understand that I was trying to accurately portray the character as authentically as possible then I am absolutely fine with them bleeping the word but I don't want to get into an argument."

This year has been one of the best of my career: Ariana Grande

Singer Ariana Grande says this year has been one of the best of her career and the worst in her life.

The No Tears Left to Cry singer, 25, was honoured at Thursday night's Billboard's Women in Music event, where she was presented with the prestigious Woman of the Year award, reports of leading publication.

During her acceptance speech, Grande struggled to hold back tears as she touched upon her very tumultuous year, which included the death of her ex-boyfriend Mac Miller and her failed whirlwind romance with Pete Davidson.

"I want to say that I find it interesting that this has been one of the best years of my career and the worst of my life," she said.

Added the singer, "I'm not saying that for sympathy, I'm just saying that because I think a lot of people would look at someone in my position right now…and think, ‘She's really got her s- together,' Ya know? Like, ‘She's really on it.' Like, ‘She's got it all.' "

"I do, but as far as my personal life goes, I really have no idea what the f- I'm doing so yeah, it's been a very conflicting one."

Grande and Miller, 26, dated for two years before officially calling it quits in May. Shortly after the two ended things, Grande and Davidson, 25, began dating. They were engaged less than two months later.

But Grande's newfound relationship bliss was short-lived when Miller was found dead in September after an accidental overdose.

As she struggled to cope with the loss of her ex, her whirlwind romance with Davidson also ended, with the pair calling off their engagement in October.

Finishing her speech, Grande opened up about her plans for 2019 and revealed what she's has learned throughout her difficult year including a new approach to love and relationships.

Homophobia is not positivity: Jamie Lee Curtis

Actress Jamie Lee Curtis slammed actor-comedian Kevin Hart's response to his resurfaced homophobic tweets.

On Thursday, just hours after Hart, 39, offered a response to his past homophobic tweets, which resurfaced following the news that he was hosting the 91s Academy Awards, Curtis, 60, took a jab at the comedian on Twitter, reports by media.

"Homophobia is not positivity," the Halloween star wrote in reference to Hart's statement, in which he said, "All I do is spread positivity."

Actor and comedian Billy Eichner also took aim at Hart, but with a little bit of humour, tweeting, "I'm beginning to think I may not be in Night School 2."

"A simple, authentic apology showing any bit of understanding or remorse would have been so simple. Like I tweeted a few weeks ago, Hollywood still has a real problem with gay men. On the surface it may not look like it. Underneath, it's far more complicated," the Billy on the Street host tweeted on a more serious note.

"Wow. Does he realise he signed up to host the Oscars? You wanna tweet "jokes" about gay bashing your own son I guess that's your choice but at the very least, know your audience!"

Their comments came after Hart shared a video of himself lying in bed on Instagram, addressing the since-deleted tweets.

"I swear man our world is becoming beyond crazy," Hart said in the clip. "I'm not going to let the craziness frustrate me or anger me especially when I worked hard to get to the mental space that I am at now."

Hart continued, "My team calls me, ‘Oh my God, Kevin, the world is upset about tweets you did years ago.' Oh my God. Guys, I'm almost 40 years old. If you don't believe that people grow, change, evolve as they get older, I don't know what to tell you."

"If you want to hold people in a position where they always have to justify or explain their past - then do you," he added. "I'm the wrong guy, man. I'm in a great place, a great mature place where all I do is spread positivity. If you're not doing that, you're not on my page."

In a follow-up post, Hart explained he was asked to apologise by the Academy, but decided to pass at the time - ultimately risking his hosting gig.

"I chose to pass, I passed on the apology. Reason why I passed is because I've addressed this several times. This is not the first time this has come up. I've addressed it. I've spoken on it. I've said where the rights and wrongs were. I've said who I am now versus who I was then. I've done it. I've done it," Hart continued.

"The same energy that went into finding those old tweets could be the same energy put into finding the responses to the questions that have been asked years after years. We're feeding the internet trolls and we reward them. I'm not going to do it man. I'm going to be me and stand my ground," Hart said.

In the hours after that post, the comedian finally revealed that he would be stepping aside from the prestigious gig and delivered an apology.

"I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year's Oscars. This is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists. I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past," he tweeted, reports by media.

"I'm sorry that I hurt people.. I am evolving and want to continue to do so. My goal is to bring people together not tear us apart. Much love and appreciation to the Academy. I hope we can meet again."

Eichner applauded the decision and praised Hart of stepping up and saying sorry.
