KJ Apa is without doubt one of the break out stars from The CW's Riverdale.

The show, which was unreal in Season 1 when it focused on the disappearance of Jason Blossom has slowly descended into utter chaos and our imaginations are now so far stretched when it comes to the storylines that it's reached the point where we're kinda bored of it tbh.

HOWEVER, that's not to say we're bored with the beautiful KJ, who has been put through the aul ringer in Season 3 as Archie Andrews.

From getting tortured in juvie to being almost  made a sacrifice, escaping a prison fight club after being stabbed, his gf's dad trying to kill him, being attacked by a bear…we could go on.

With the shows success, has come huge levels of fame for it's young cast – not to mention 21-year-old KJ.

When it comes to dealing with the madness of fame and fans, he says that he is struggling.

He told ASOS Magazine, ''The weird thing is that it used to be people calling me by my character’s name.''

He continued, ''Now people come up to me in the street and know my name.”

He added, ''Some people touch you and I had a hard time with people feeling like they can have that intimacy with me. The attention is strange and not comfortable. You put yourself in their shoes and think, ‘If I saw someone like that, what would I do?’”

Hmmm, being a celeb does sound kinda creepy when he puts it like that.

People being weird aside, KJ also revealed that he's battling some issues about his appearance. 

He said, ''As soon as I started being on camera so much, I became self-conscious, which I never was [before]. Now I look in the mirror and feel unhappy with…whatever. The fact I have to look a certain way for the show, that can be pressuring.''

But hold on – the New Zealand ride is happy to give himself time to adjust to being known.

He said, ''It’s easy to put pressure on yourself. Recently, it’s been realising, ‘What do I want as a 21-year-old in life?’ In terms of relationships, battling between staying with the love of your life or being a 21-year-old and not living with regret when you’re older. I look at my parents’ marriage and I think, ‘Don’t you wish that you’d waited a bit?’”

Just goes to show that even if you're ripped to shreds, a strong AF Instagram game and bucket loads of talent, you can still be unsure of yourself. 

Thanks for cheering us up, KJ.


He might be one of the hottest men to grace our screens in recent years, but that doesn't mean Northern Irish actor Jamie Dornan has let fame go to his head.

In a new interview with Ryan Tubridy which will air as part of tomorrow night's Late Late line-up, the County Down native admitted that fame is one aspect of his work which doesn't appeal to him.

Sitting next to his Anthropoid co-star Cillian Murphy, Jamie explained: “The fame aspect that comes with being a working actor does not intrigue me in the slightest.” 

“I think something like being Irish helps, and my friends.  There’s just no allowance for it.”

The Marie Antoinette star revealed how the value he places on his family and friends allows him to stay grounded.  

He said: “In your life, no matter what happens or how much notoriety you gain through your work, the fundamentals of your life don’t change…Your wife, your kids, your family and your friends, all that stuff, the stuff that makes you, doesn’t change.”

“On nights like this when you go to a premiere and it all seems crazy, it’s all very heightened but every day is totally normal.  It’s just a job, you go to work and do your job and then that’s it,” he continued.

Surprisingly the 34-year-old father of two also admitted that despite his lead role in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, few of his friends have actually seen the flick.

He said: “I’m just thinking about some of my mates here and I would never want to go to see them in that movie!  It would be no different.”

“Why would they want to see me like that?” he asked.  “None of them have seen it.  I think a couple came to the premiere in London actually but with wives and girlfriends.”

As well as Jamie and Cillian, tomorrow night’s Late Late Show will also feature comedian Al Porter and Olympians Michael Conlan, Annalise Murphy and Gary and Paul O’Donovan.

The Late Late Show airs this Friday at 9.35pm on RTÉ One

She bounced onto the mainstream early last year and has been in the limelight ever since – but Amy Schumer has revealed that she doesn't think her fame is going to last much longer.

While on USA Today, the comedienne opened up about being a major celebrity in the past 12 months.

"Do you guys know that I'm really famous now?" she began.

"I think it's going to last another six months. I didn't know what being famous would be like. You can imagine, and then it actually really blows."

Even though Amy doesn't think her fame will last another much longer, she already has a fifth season of Inside Amy Schumer lined up for 2017, so we doubt she's going to be going back to normal life anytime soon. 




We don’t think anybody could accuse Lily Allen of being fake – especially after this revelation!

The pop star, who is making her comeback into stardom with the release of her new album, Sheezus, has spoken about why she decided to make music again.

Was it because she just really missed writing music? Er, not really, no.

Lily spoke to Glamour magazine and said: “I wasn’t good at staying at home all day, it didn’t suit me. I’m creative, it’s just who I am … I missed the rush of performing. I missed the free clothes and handbags and the good tables in posh restaurants.”

We don’t think we can judge – free clothes and handbags sound good to us!
