Robbie unrecognisable in new role
Margot Robbie has traded in her skimpy Harley Quinn shorts for mum jeans for a new role.
The 26-year-old is almost unrecognisable on the set of biopic, I, Tonya, in a fat suit, facial prosthetics and a blonde wig.
She plays Tonya Harding, a famous figure skater whose ex-husband hired a hitman in 1994 to attack her rival, Nancy Kerrigan, but failed and jeopardised her career in return.
Chambers gives birth to boy
US actor Armie Hammer, 30, and his wife, Elizabeth Chambers, welcomed their new son on Tuesday.
Chambers shared a photo of her family on Instagram with her two-year-old daughter and newborn lying on top of her.
The caption said: "Beyond grateful for the prayers and for this ultimate blessing. We couldn't be more in love."
The days leading up to the birth were not smooth as Hammer tore a pectoral muscle and Chambers was also way past her due date.
Before he went into surgery, she posted a photo on her Instagram of Hammer kissing her belly and wrote: "Dear baby, Please don't come in the next 5 hours. Thank you, Mom and Dad".
Grammys to feature Legend, Metallica
Chart-topping singer John Legend and metal legends Metallica will be among the performers at this year's Grammy Awards.
The music industry's signature gala takes place in Los Angeles on Feb 12, with Beyonce leading nominations.
Legend is a favourite of the Grammys. The 38-year-old has won 10 awards and has performed each year since 2014.
Metallica in November released its first album in eight years which, like Legend's latest, came out too late for Grammy eligibility.
The Recording Academy, which plans to announce further performers later, will also give the ceremony a country music flavour with two of the genre's top stars - Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban.
The host of this year's ceremony will be British comedian James Corden.
He replaces rapper LL Cool J who led the show for five straight years. - AFP
