Starring beside Ben Affleck and Zac Efron has done Emily Ratajkowski a world of wonders. 

She's now practically a household name and her Instagram account has soared to 3.4m followers; so it was a shock to hear that the model has never walked on the runway before. 

Well, that all changed thanks to Marc Jacobs and his cinematic Spring show. 

Emily took to the catwalk alongside superstar models like Adriana Lima, Karen Elson and Jamie Bochert. 

With it's film premiere theme, the show provided an ideal debut for the model/actress, who knew before the event even started that it was going to be something special. 

“I think the energy that people felt in the audience once the show started—we were feeling that from the second we got to do a rehearsal.”

“Each girl’s look was like a character Marc had created just for us,” says Emily.

“It made all of us feel special and beautiful in our own way—which is exactly what Marc had set out to do.”


Our emotions just cannot take any more of this!

Jennifer Garner and soon-to-be (possibly, maybe not?) ex-husband Ben Affleck are apparently seeing a marriage counsellor.

According to People magazine, the pair who have been spotted out and about together recently, are working on figuring out the next step in their relationship.

The Hollywood A-List duo announced their split in June. Just recently however they have been spotted leaving a family counselling centre in Los Angeles.

People reports that before their separation they were attending weekly counselling sessions but stopped going completely in the months leading to the announcement of their break up.

This week, the pair were seen leaving the centre all smiles, although neither were wearing their wedding rings.

The “amicable exes” said in a statement to media outlet at the time that they were planning to “go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children."

The pair spent the summer in Atlanta, where Jennifer was filming her latest film Miracles from Heaven.

The family have since returned to L.A with Jen taking residence in the family home with children Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3.


Apparently, she's been inundated with offers of lucrative reality TV slots and highly-paid tell-all interviews

And while there's no word yet on what Christine Ouzounian's next move is, it seems the former nanny of Ben Affleck and 44-year-old Jennifer Garner has a €900,000 pay-cheque in the offing – if she fancies turning to porn.

Yes, the 28-year-old – who is rumoured to have had an affair with 43-year-old Hollywood superstar Ben – has a parody XXX Batwoman role with her name on it.

Mr Affleck, of course, is the next Batman, with his Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice being released next year.

TMZ says it has exclusively learned that porn parody producer and director Axel Braun is offering Christine $1million (€880,000) to to play the female caped crusader: she'd have to act for two weeks and do three sex scenes.

There is as yet no word on whether Christine is interested in more risque projects, but she's reportedly chasing fame anyway,

According to PageSix, the young woman is certainly hoping her newfound notoriety will make her a household name.

Earlier this month, the same site revealed she's looking for a Hollywood agent and has her sights firmly set on getting a high-profile reality TV show.

The goal is to be cast on The Bachelorette or Dancing With The Stars, it was claimed – and she wants to make sure she secures a six-figure fee at the same time.


The Ben-and-Jen divorce drama just keeps getting seedier.

Earlier this week, rumours that Ben Affleck was dating his children's former nanny Christine Ouzounian escalated after the 28-year-old was pictured on a private jet headed to Vegas, with Ben and footballer star Tom Brady also believed to be on board.

And rather than working to quell the rumours, Ben's long-time friend Matt Damon seems delighted that his friend is no longer married. Speaking at the premiere of HBO's Project Greenlight earlier this week – which Ben also attended – Matt said his Good Will Hunting co-star was doing "great," adding, "He's got a big smile on his face."

Ben and his wife of ten years Jennifer Garner announced they were divorcing at the end of June, though they had been unofficially separated since the early spring.

Despite the complications of dissolving a ten-year marriage and working out custody agreements, the pair have been working hard to keep things amicable for the sake of their children, even heading to the Bahamas together with all three kids 24 hours after making their divorce announcement.

However it's rumoured that it was during that very trip that Jennifer first discovered something was going on between Ben and Christine… so we can't imagine the former couple will be planning any more joint holidays in the near future.


Ben Affleck’s nanny seemed to be have a great time on a recent trip to Las Vegas.

Christine Ouzounian, 28, was photographed on board the luxury air craft playfully posing with some impressive looking bling.

Friend of Ben, Tom Brady a four time Superbowl winner, obviously didn’t mind sharing some of his hardware with the former Affleck family nanny. 

The trio appeared to be off on a trip that was kept quiet in late June, after the Affleck family took their trip to the Bahamas. Ben and Christine took a trip to Sin City to attend a poker tournament, according to Page Six.

In the photograph, first published by The Post, Christine looks quite comfy sporting some white jeans and a navy tank top while relaxing with her shoes kicked off on broad the private jet.

Apparently Ben, who has been known to gamble in the past, asked Christine to come with him back to LA from the Bahamas while Jen and their three children stayed behind.

A source told Hollywood Life that “he assured her it was OK. Technically, he was her boss’’.

Apparently “along the way, he convinced her to go to Las Vegas with for a poker tournament,” the insider continued saying, “While in Vegas Ben hid Christine the entire time.”

The photograph was reportedly taken only three days before the announcement came that Ben and wife Jennifer Garner were getting a divorce.

Christine has been spotted a number of times, with and without Ben since the news of his split broke – including during one late-night rendezvous in which she handed him a bottle of champagne at his rented home.

However, reps for the Argo actor has dismissed rumours that Christine and Ben were involved romantically leading up the separation, they said the rumours were "shameful". 


The accusation seemed incredible: Ben Affleck had become romantically involved with a 28-year-old nanny who had been employed to look after his three children.

Indeed, his reps a week ago totally dismissed the story, labelling it "garbage" and "full of lies".

Still, pictures have now emerged of Christine Ouzounian popping around to Mr Affleck's swish rented abode in Los Angeles. Waiting until late evening, she is also seen carrying a bottle of champagne. 

"She says Ben really, really likes her," a pal of Ms Ouzounian’s told Us Weekly magazine recently. "She’s saying this is true love."

The 42-year-old actor and his 43-year-old actress wife Jennifer Garner – previously one of Hollywood's golden couples – separated in the spring shortly after Christine began caring for the couple’s three children, Violet, nine, Seraphina, six, and Samuel, three.

Mr Affleck and the nanny have been photographed together repeatedly since then, including on June 30 in the Bahamas. Ms Ouzounian was fired the day after that photo surfaced.

She has also reportedly been driving his Lexus around LA.

The newly released photograph of the pair – the one capturing the late-night champagne hand-over – was taken on July 17. You can view it here

Incredibly, ET Online reports that Christine herself tipped off the paparazzi on that occasion – hoping that a snap of her and her former boss together could lead them to conduct a relationship more publicly. 

Understandably, Jennifer is said by numerous publications and media outlets to be "livid" at the revelations.


It's been almost a month since Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garmer split up, and Ben has wasted no time in moving on, with the former couple's nanny, no less.

Christine Ouzounian was reportedly hired during Ben and Jen's ten-month trial separation period to look after their children, Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3.

During that period, an attraction apparently developed between Christine and Oscar-winning actor Ben, and although his reps have dismissed the claims as garbage, Christine's story is a very different one.

"She says Ben really, really likes her,” a friend of the nanny told Us Weekly. "She’s saying this is true love."

But just who is the woman who stole Ben's heart? Here's what we know so far…

1. She’s 14 years younger than Ben, and 15 years younger than Jen. Stinger…
28-year-old Christine grew up in California and graduated from Santa Monica High School back in 2005. She went to college in Arizona where she studied communications, and also spent some time studying in Italy. Like Jennifer, Christine was a sorority girl – she was in the Delta Gamma chapter at ASU, while Jennifer was a Pi Beta Phi member at Denison University.


2. The Affleck-Garners were not her first celebrity employees
Prior to working for Ben and Jennifer, Christine was employed by How I Met Your Mother star Neil Patrick Harris and his husband David Burtka to care for their toddler twins Gideon Scott and Harper Grace in New York. According to her now-deleted LinkedIn profile, Christine's role involved representing "the family well in the public eye and press," and being "extremely discreet and flexible."


3. Her twin sister helped hook her up with celebrity jobs
Christine’s twin Caty has had a number of high-profile PA and nannying roles too, and also worked with Neil Patrick Harris as well as Mel B. The pair were both employed by a high-end Beverly Hills nanny agency which is where Christine got the Ben/Jen job.


4. She previously lived in the Bahamas and that’s also where Jennifer fired her
After their divorce announcement, Ben and Jennifer headed to the Bahamas with their kids (and Christine, we assume) for some downtime away from the press. However after discovering there was something going on with her ex-husband and the nanny, Christine was let go. She wasn’t left stranded though, as she no doubt had some old friends living nearby. The 28-year-old spent two years living and working in the Bahamas as a teacher at the Head Start Academy.


5. She wasn’t surprised when the media discovered her relationship with Ben…
…In fact she may have been the one who tipped the papps off. According to ET Online, Chris has a good relationship with celeb photographers having worked in the public eye for years. It’s thought she may have been the one who ensured she was snapped by photographers bringing a bottle of champagne into Ben’s rental house in LA.



Just a few weeks after the announcement that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are divorcing, it is now being reported that Ben is dating a new woman.

And not just any woman, either – the family nanny too. 

Yes, the 42-year-old is seemingly to be dating their children's minder, who was hired in the last year to look after the couple's two daughters and a son.

Christine Ouzounian is from California and is employed by a high-end nanny service in the Beverly Hills area. 

US Weekly says that, according to sources close to Ben and Jennifer, Christine was hired to look after Violet, Seraphina and Samual during the couple's trial separation period – a period which is said to have lasted around ten months. 

A friend of Christine's told Us Weekly that with Jennifer away filming, the 28-year-old was often left alone with Ben: "They would hang out with the kids and they were very flirty," the source claimed.

And it has been reported that the nanny was fired from the job when Jennifer sensed there was something going on with her and Ben. 

Still, it is alleged that Ben feels terrible about the whole situation, and has remained in constant contact with his younger friend.

His representatives have already dismissed the rumours as "garbage".

It is almost a month since Hollywood stars Ben and Jen announced the end of their ten year marriage, although the pair have both been spotted out and about still wearing their wedding rings. 


They won praise for continuing to share a home in the aftermath of their shock split – and it seems that Bennifer plan to live together when they move back to California too.

Indeed, the actors will reportedly rent Brooke Shields’s sprawling LA home once they leave Atlanta, where she is currently filming Miracles From Heaven.

Last month, Ben, 42, and Jennifer, 43, announced that they planned to divorce after a decade of marriage.

However, they continue to live together for the sake of three children: Violet, nine, Seraphina, six, and Samuel, three.

And while the duo already own a €16m property in the exclusive Pacific Palisades neighbourhood in west LA, they are having major construction work carried out and it won’t be ready by the time Miracles From Heaven wraps.

Meaning they are delighted to have secured Ms Sheilds’s 500sq metre, five-bed abode, which is located in the same area. Rent is believed to be set at a cool €27,500 a month.

Construction on their own house has also been delayed – seemingly in light of their changing domestic set-up.

It is believed that the pair have more recently added in a separate living dwelling for Ben on the grounds of the main house – where Jen and the children will reside.

Sources confirmed to Page Six that Mr Affleck will “remain with his family on this new property”.

Shortly after their split was made public last month, the entire Affleck-Garner clan went to the Bahamas for a holiday away from the headlines.

And last weekend, Ben was spotted holding an adorable golden retriever pup, which sources say the family rescued while in Atlanta.




It’s hard to believe that it was three summers ago that all we could talk about was the thrilling summer read, Gone Girl.

And for a refreshing change, the movie was almost as good as the book. This was in no small part thanks to the stellar cast and the brilliant direction from David Fincher.

While author of the novel, Gillian Flynn, has remained sceptical on whether or not she may get down to writing a sequel, we do have one ally on our side – none other than Charlize Theron.

The Oscar-winning actress stars in another on-screen adaption of Ms Flynn’s, Dark Places. And it appears that Charlize is as eager as to try and get Gillian to write the next instalment of Gone Girl as we are.

In an interview with E!, the Mad Max: Fury Road star joined reporter Marc Malkin in attempting to woo the author into telling us what happens next to Amy and Nick Dunne.

“Come on,” Charlize urges. “You have to.”

To which Ms Flynn replied, “I don’t know if I can go back to the Dunnes quite yet – those diabolical Dunnes. I think about it every once in a while… I do. It’s hard to shake sometimes.”

Well, at least that didn’t rule anything out!

Thakfully Charlize had a fool-proof plan (hmmm) which she revealed. “I’ll get her drunk tonight and make her sign a contract,” the 39-year-old proposed.

Although it doesn’t look like anything is going to be in the works anytime soon, Gillian has said that she wouldn’t rule out a second film in the future if she could get David Fincher, Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike back on board. 


Is there anything more swoon-worthy than seeing a ridiculously good looking man playing with a puppy?

Nope, we really don’t think that there is.

Ben Affleck flew into Atlanta on Monday afternoon to visit his three children, Violet, Seraphina and Samuel. The kids are currently staying with Jennifer Garner while she films her new movie, Miracles in Heaven.

And what did he bring along with him? That’s right – a beautiful fluffy golden Labrador puppy! Nawwwww!

The gorgeous dog was adopted by the Affleck family in May. Ben and Jen reportedly took their daughters to a dog adoption just weeks before the couple announced their divorce in an official joint statement in June.

The statement read, “After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce. We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time.”


The director of Gone Girl, David Fincher, has said that he would be suspicious of Ben Affleck if he were Jennifer Garner. 

In the DVD commentary of the 2014 hit Gone Girl, David said he would have been suspicious based on the actor's on-set talents. 

In this film, Ben played a cheating husband who becomes the suspect when his wife goes missing. 

In the DVD commentary, Fincher explained how Ben had an amazing ability to make up fake phone conversations during filming. 

“This is something that Ben is extraordinarily good at, when he has to cook up a phone conversation, when he has to hear somebody on the other end of the phone,” the director said on the commentary, according to the New York Daily News. 

“It’s kinda stunning how …if I was his wife, I think I would be very suspicious, always, of whoever just called because he has a real gift at being able to insinuate a conversation,” he continued.

Ben and Jennifer recently announced that they were going their separate ways after ten years of marriage together. 

The pair were both spotted separately over the weekend, and they are both still pictured wearing their wedding rings.

Ben was spotted wearing his wedding band while at Comic Con in San diego, while Jennifer was wearing hers while filming in Atlanta. 

The couple have three kids together — Violet, 9, Seraphina, 6, and Samuel, 3.

A source told Us Weekly that “Ben is distraught over the divorce and is having a very hard time,”

“He doesn’t have a lot of close friends to lean on right now, and Jennifer has always been the one he goes to.”
