speaks out

He’s spoken candidly about depression, defended himself against body shaming and now Wentworth Miller has delivered an inspirational message to the LGBT community.

Speaking to Attitude magazine as he’s named its Man of the Year, the 44-year-old actor reassured those struggling with their sexuality that it gets easier with time.

The star – who will make his television comeback as part of next year’s Prison Break reboot – said: “I would say what others have said: it gets better one day, you’ll find your tribe.”  

“You just have to trust that people are out there waiting to love you and celebrate you for who you are,” he continued.

Acknowledging that coming to terms with one’s sexuality can be an isolating experience, Wentworth encouraged members of the LGBT community to focus on self-love first.

“In the meantime, the reality is you might have to be your own tribe.  You might have to be your own best friend.  That’s not something they’re going to teach you in school.  So start the work of loving yourself.”

The Golden Globe nominee publicly came out as gay in 2013 after challenging Russia’s treatment of LGBT individuals.

Khloe Kardashian has spoken publicly for the first time about the traumatic armed robbery which saw her sister Kim bound and gagged in a Parisian apartment.

Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today, the blonde reality star revealed that Kim “is not doing well” after the high profile attack.

She explained to the show’s host and fellow guest Kevin Hart: “It’s incredibly traumatic what happened to her, but our family is super close and great and we’ll get through it together, and we do appreciate all of your guys’ love and support and it will take time.”

 

Balenciaga. No make up today.

When asked by Ellen if the experience has made the family wary of their huge social media following, Khloe replied: “Well, I think it's just a wake up call to make a lot of life adjustments.”

“This is a really serious matter for Kim I think that’s really personal as to when that emotional terror you could move on from that.”

“We're a family we’ll do this together.  I think it’s important to make those adjustments and to pull back a little bit, I think is always smart,” she continued.

 

"You can't sit with us!" ok ladies! I see you!! Okkkkuuuuurrrrr

After expressing his admiration for the Kardashian-Jenners’ family orientated attitude, Kevin then redirected the conversation towards Rob Kardashian and his on-off partner Blac Chyna.

Ellen questioned Khloe about the recent baby shower dispute which led Rob to allegedly leak his youngest sister Kylie’s number online.

The 32-year-old Kardashian explained: “There were two baby showers and Chyna was invited to both of them.  But we wanted to have a DILF shower…that was supposed to be all for the guys.”

She said that the so-called “DILF shower” was supposed to be a surprise party for Rob which Chyna knew about but Rob did not.

Eventually Rob failed to turn up to the shower which led to a row between the expecting couple.

Kim Kardashian West is reportedly taking legal action against the notorious Ukrainian prankster who tried to kiss her famous behind in Paris this week.

According to TMZ, the popular reality star has contacted lawyers and the police after Vitalii Sediuk – aka the man who attacked Gigi Hadid during Milan Fashion Week – tried to grab her bum and kiss it as she made her way to a show.

The mother of two is seeking a restraining order against the 27-year-old as this is the second time he’s gone for her.

On his Instagram account last night, a shameless Vitalii shared a picture of the incident alongside a caption which attempts to justify his actions.

As well as claiming his run-in with Kim happened by chance, he wrote: “I was protesting Kim for using fake butt implants.  I encourage her and the rest or the Kardashian clan to popularise natural beauty among teenage girls who follow and defend them blindly.”

Apparently this makes it OK to lunge at an unsuspecting woman’s behind.

After learning of Angelina Jolie’s divorce plans, we were hit with a tide of speculation suggesting that her split from Brad Pitt was down to alleged infidelity with his Allied co-star, Marion Cotillard.

The scandal intensified yesterday when reports emerged that the 40-year-old French actress was pregnant, and the allegations moved her to finally speak out in the past few hours.

In a candid post on her Instagram account, Marion began: “This is going to be my first and only reaction to the whirlwind news that broke 24 hours ago and that I was swept up into. I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously, but as this situation is spiralling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up.”

Referring to her former co-star and partner of nine years, Guillaume Canet, Cotillard wrote: “Many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our young son and of the baby we are expecting. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need.”

Cotillard, who is already mother to five-year-old son Marcel with Canet, went on to thank those who acknowledged her ‘devastation’ over the rumours, and wished a ‘swift recovery’ to ‘the media and the haters who are quick to pass judgment’.

 

This is going to be my first and only reaction to the whirlwind news that broke 24 hours ago and that I was swept up into. I am not used to commenting on things like this nor taking them seriously but as this situation is spiraling and affecting people I love, I have to speak up. Firstly, many years ago, I met the man of my life, father of our son and of the baby we are expecting. He is my love, my best friend, the only one that I need. Secondly to those who have indicated that I am devastated, I am very well thank you. This crafted conversation isn't distressing. And to all the media and the haters who are quick to pass judgment, I sincerely wish you a swift recovery. Finally, I do very much wish that Angelina and Brad, both whom I deeply respect, will find peace in this very tumultuous moment. With all my love Marion Ceci sera la première et seule réaction que j'aurai concernant la déferlante inouïe qui à commencé il y a de ça 24 heures et à laquelle je suis mêlée malgré moi. Je n'ai pas pour habitude de commenter ni de prendre au sérieux le tas d'absurdités déversées à mon sujet mais la situation prenant une telle tournure et affectant des gens que j'aime, je me dois de m'exprimer. Pour commencer, j'ai rencontré il y a quelques années l'homme de ma vie , le père de notre fils et du bébé que nous attendons aujourd'hui. Il est mon amour, mon meilleur ami et le seul homme dont j'ai besoin. Ensuite, à ceux qui me prétendent dévastée, je vais très bien merci. Ce genre d'inventions aberrantes ne m'affectent en aucun cas. Et pour finir, à la "presse", à tous les haters, trolls et consorts qui ont le jugement si rapide je vous souhaite sincèrement… un prompt rétablissement. Ceci dit et un peu plus sérieusement, je souhaite à Angelina et Brad, deux personnes pour qui j'ai un profond respect, de trouver la paix dans ce moment tumultueux. Avec tout mon amour. Marion

“Finally, I do very much wish that Angelina and Brad, both whom I deeply respect, will find peace in this very tumultuous moment,” she added.

Earlier this month Price Harry made headlines when he live streamed himself being tested for HIV in a bid to break down the stigma which often surrounds the process.

Since then the Royal has continued to raise awareness about important social issues by speaking about his experience of his mother’s death at an event for the mental health charity Heads Together.

In the new clip the Royal can be heard telling footballer Rio Ferdinand that he regrets not opening up about his mother’s death sooner.

 

He said: “Everything can be ok but I really regret not ever talking about it.  For the first 28 years of my life I never talked about it.”

The Prince explained how he had been approached by a friend to see if he would share his experience with three children who had lost their mother to suicide.

Harry said: “[The kids] are now in the process of asking questions, ‘where’s mummy,’ and all this sort of stuff.”

“They had started asking questions and going ‘what is going to happen to us when we get older [because] we haven’t got a mum’.”

“We didn’t even talk about it.  We just sat down and had a laugh and he just said…there’s a classic example of someone who’s [lost their mother and is] normal.”

Rio later explained to the BBC what a valuable experience hearing Harry’s story was for him as he raises his own children after their mother’s death.

He said: “He’s gone through different stages in his life that my kids are going to be going towards.  So to get some of these experiences is very very rewarding for me and very educational in many ways for me in knowing what to expect going forward for my children.”

31-year-old Harry created Heads Together with his brother Prince William and Kate Middleton as a means through which leading metal health charities could unite.

Harry’s mother Princess Diana died in a car accident in Paris in 1997.  At the time Harry was just 12 years old.

Katie Hopkins – who had a very public showdown with Peaches Geldof on TV show This Morning – has spoken out for the first time about the 25-year-old’s tragic death.

Katie had previously embarked on a Twitter feud with Peaches and criticised the young mum in her newspaper column late last year.

The former Apprentice contestant and prolific tweeter, came under fire on Tuesday when she failed to acknowledge Peaches’ death on the site.

Katie has now broken her silence saying, “Peaches didn’t want a tweet from me”.

Writing in her column for The Sun newspaper, she said, “Peaches didn’t want a tweet from me. She didn’t welcome it in life. She certainly didn’t need it in death. She was tough enough not to seek approval from anyone. I admire that trait in others.”

“When terrible things happen, our job is not to cause a fuss but to leave people to their grief,” she said. “Now Sir Bob, her husband and the children need to be left in private to clutch on to anything that keeps them afloat.”

Katie went on, “Growing up without a mum brought heartbreak into Peaches’ life. Her death threatens to do the same for her boys. History has done a terrible thing and repeated itself.”

“Peaches didn’t need tweets from celebrities or strangers – she just needed a mother’s love,” she added.
