Eliza Dushku

Eliza Dushku will be hearing the pitter patter of tiny feet this year.

The actor, famous for her roles in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Bring It On is set to become a mum with her husband Peter Palandjan.

This will be the first child for the couple, who married in August 2018.

Eliza announced the news at a special screening of her documentary Mapplethorpe in New York City.

She said, ''We're just very excited. We just got married in August. It's a special year for us."

While it is the first baby for the 38-year-old, Peter has four children from a previous marriage.

Eliza previously spoke about how she was excited about the chapter of her life that was unfolding.

She said, ''I'm newly married and I'm just so excited about this next chapter in my life. You know, I've been acting since I was 9-years-old and I'm sort of finding these new things that I'm really excited about. It's been a big year but a great year."

Huge congrats to the pair, we wish Eliza a happy and healthy pregnancy. 


Still totally bitchin', and still with really great hair!

The stars of Bring It On reunited for the ultimate flashback experience to 15 years ago when cheerleaders were the absolute queens of the teen universe.

Kirsten Dunst, Gabrielle Union, Eliza Dushku and Jesse Bradford sat down with Entertainment Weekly to talk about how the low-budget 2000 movie was transformed into a complete cult classic.

"Even when I’m promoting different movies or my TV show, people still want to talk about Bring It On," Gabrielle said. 

Joining a cheer-squad was not necessarily fitting with their off-screen personas. 

"I was a tomboy growing up and kind of an anti-cheerleader in real life," Eliza explained.

"But I begrudgingly showed up for the audition, probably a little hungover. There were girls doing flips in the lobby, and I kind of cringed and dodged them and went in, and I guess Peyton [Reed] just found that hilarious. He asked me if I could do a split, so I got onto the ground into a split, and that was it."

Kirsten Dunst admitted that she remembers "not being super sure about it."

"I was like, ‘A cheerleading movie?’ It sounded like it could have been just a cheesy teen movie, but what sealed the deal for me was talking to the director," she explained.

Gabrielle added that while she played plenty of sports in school, nothing had ever prepared her for how intense cheerleading was going to be:

"Those rehearsals were some of the lower points in my life — I questioned my very existence. Everything hurt. That’s probably why there are a lot of close-ups of me, not wide shots."

Well, that sounds delightful, truly.

It was defintely worth it in the end as while Bring It On cost €24 million to make, it has grossed almost €90 million across the globe since it was released, accoording to Box Office Mojo. 







Earlier this week One Direction delighted fans all over the world when they released their surprise new single Drag Me Down.

However, it looks like there was one Hollywood star who was certainly not feeling the 1D love.

Former Buffy The Vampire Slayer actress Eliza Dushku took to social media to vent her frustration at the lads. While staying in a hotel during filming for her new series Banshee in Pittsburgh, Eliza managed to end up being there at the same time as the band.

While we know an awful lot of people who would thrilled at the prospect of maybe running into Louis, Harry, Niall or Liam on the way to the lifts, Eliza was less than pleased. It turns out that the lads needed an entire floor of the hotel to themselves, so Eliza had to pack her bags and get moving to make some room.

In an Instagram post that showed her luggage piled up and waiting to be moved into a new room Eliza vented her frustrations at the boys:

“Don’t worry @OneDirection. It was super chill movin outta my hotel room so u can have the ENTIRE FLOOR I’ve been staying on for 2 months.” 

She doesn’t seem to happy then. Eliza made use of her hashtags to really drive home how annoyed she was too. She wrote: “#OnLocationLife #HotelWars #ActorProblems #WhatHaveYouDoneForMeLately #OneDirection Took 2 hrs this Friday afternoon before work.” 

To be fair, we don’t think anyone wants to spend their Friday afternoon waiting in hotel corridors.

Thankfully everything should be back to normal for the actress soon as the band is expected in New Jersey on August 5. We imagine there is sure to be plenty of hotel space for the boys or they might start running out of famous pals.



So while everyone was enjoying the Halloween festivities last night, Eliza Dushku was going through a pretty scary ordeal.

The actress took to Twitter to reveal that not only had two masked men stolen her handbag, but they ended up being guests of the hotel she was staying in.

Eliza tweeted that she was unloading her bags for check-in at the hotel when she placed her Louis Vuitton bag on the curb. Two men, one wearing a “gold head to toe Caesar outfit” then proceeded to rob the bag when she wasn’t looking.

The Dollhouse star then appealed to the hotel for help, saying that the two men were guests at the hotel, with bystanders even giving a floor number.

While having your handbag stolen is an awful thing in itself, the actress was then forced to stay in the same hotel as the thieves. How creepy!

She tweeted: “They’re here. In hotel. Why I can’t sleep. Possibly just right down the hall. Distressing. I want them found. Release pics/ videos @OmniHotels.”

Thankfully, the thieves were soon apprehended and sent to jail, with the actress thanking her followers for helping to ensure that she got her bag back.

What a nightmare!
