Chiwetel Ejiofor has admitted he is envious of his The Old Guard co-star Charlize Theron.

The pair star alongside each other in the new superhero film and Chiewetel, 43, told how he wishes he had Charlize’s talent for telling a story through the body.

Speaking to GQ Hype, he said: ‘I envy Charlize, you know? I’ll admit it. She is able to do something that I have never quite managed to do and that is tell narrative through physicality.

‘That is really difficult and this isn’t the first film she’s shown she can do this – take Mad Max: Fury Road, for example. There is an exquisite poetry in seeing Charlize wield a four-foot axe – and with humour too, I might add. 

‘To put all the nuance of a character into a very complex fight sequence using only choreography is quite astonishing.’ 

The Old Guard was released on July 10 on Netflix and follows a team of immortal mercenaries that go on a revenge mission.

Chiwetel also discussed the current state of the film industry, saying it needs big franchises like James Bond and the Marvel movies.

The actor said that while some people do not consider blockbuster films to be ‘art’, he insisted they keep many people employed at a time when the industry is in ‘deep trouble’ due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

The 12 Years A Slave star also spoke out about Britain’s political system, saying he would like to see more politicians come from ‘the grassroots’, rather than people who ‘went to one or two schools and one or two universities’. 

It comes after Charlize, 44, called for better representation in Hollywood because she wants her daughters to ‘see themselves’ represented in both cinema and ‘in life’.

The actress is mother to two adopted daughters – Jackson, eight, and August, four – and has said she wants them to grow up being accurately represented in film and television, so they can ‘feel they belong’.

He said: 'I envy Charlize, I'll admit it. She is able to do something that I have never quite managed to do and that is tell narrative through physicality' (pictured in December 2019)

Charlize said on the podcast The Big Ticket: ‘I want more representation, just selfishly, for my own girls.

‘I want that for the world as well, but of course, it starts with the fact that I’m a mom to two small Black girls, and I want them to grow up in a world where they see themselves, where there is an awareness that they can be whomever they want to be because they see it.

‘And that’s not just in cinema, that’s in life, too. I want to surround them in a world where they feel they belong and they can shine and they can live to their full potential.’

The actress adopted her daughter Jackson in March of 2012, later adopting another daughter August in July of 2015.

Real Housewives Of New York City looks to be hiring first black cast member

real housewives of new york city looks to be hiring first black cast member

The Real Housewives Of New York City was first rumored to be diversifying its all-white cast after the news of Dorinda Medley’s shocking exit in August. 

Less than a month after the network’s decision to give the 55-year-old fan favorite  the ax, the reality TV show appears to be fulfilling its quest for a more inclusive cast. 

The newest member of the series is reportedly motivational speaker Bershan Shaw, according to TMZ

While it is unclear whether the star will serve as a ‘full-time housewife or just a friend of the show to start,’ the outlet claimed she has begun filming. 

Shaw is a international public speaker, entrepreneur and two-time cancer survivor. 

On her website, Shaw writes that she is a ‘regular on ABC 7’s Good Morning Washington DC’ and ‘is on a mission to shift mindsets and inspire actions with her powerful story.’

After a battle with stage 4 breast cancer and being told she had only three months to live, the podcast host learned how to stare adversity in the face and leveraged that experience to create her signature ‘Warrior Method.’ 

‘I didn’t want to be “the sick girl” at 33,’ she told The Huffington Post in 2014, five years after her diagnosis. ‘I didn’t want to be the girl who needed sympathy and empathy.’ 

The Love In The City actress continued that two years after that initial diagnosis, just weeks before her wedding, she learned her cancer had returned. 

Lack of representation: While less than half of New York City is white, 100 percent of the RHONY cast has been, apart from Jules Wainstein's stint on the show in 2016. (l-r) Tinsley Mortimer, Dorinda Medley, Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer, Leah McSweeney

‘I was literally praying every day, “Please don’t take my life, God. Please. This is not my time,”‘ Bershan noted, before clarifying she is now cancer-free. 

While she has not confirmed the exciting news of her next project, on Thursday she teased a special announcement. 

‘I don’t ever stop I make money moves. Don’t stop your hustle. Even during the pandemic. Find your grind,’ Shaw told her nearly 70,000 Instagram followers.

While less than half of New York City is white, 100 percent of the RHONY cast has been, apart from Jules Wainstein’s brief stint on the show in 2016.  

The 38-year-old daughter of a Jewish father and Japanese mother, however, only lasted one season. 

The last season included Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, Dorinda Medley, Tinsley Mortimer and Leah McSweeney. 

Neither Medley nor Mortimer are returning for the 13th season.

RHONY’s most recent addition, McSweeney, spoke about hoping future seasons will hold ‘not only diversity of race, but an even deeper diversity of where someone lives or what their interests are.’

The Married To The Mob founder told Page Six in August, ‘I hope that there’s just more diversity all across the board because New Yorkers are not a monolith, obviously. I think that it is gonna head in that direction.’

She continued: ‘I have a lot of black friends, and I hear a lot of stories from them about racism and the sh*t they have to deal with. But, it never stops being shocking and appalling to hear someone’s personal stories’

lisa rinna brushes off claim harry hamlin had an extramarital affair during trip to canada

She’s never afraid to own it when it comes to being real online or on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

And Lisa Rinna was quick to brush off claims that her husband Harry Hamlin was involved in an affair with a woman in 2018 near their summer house in Muskoka, Ontario, Canada

When one user alleged that her gal pal had been involved in a seasonal tryst with Hamlin, Rinna made sure to add her own brand of humor to deny the allegations.

‘My girlfriend f***ed Harry Hamlin in muskoka for an entire summer in 2018 – you wanna talk about that @lisarinna???’ Twitter user BiiigBrotherrrr wrote online Wednesday night. ‘Or do you want to talk about his affair with Patricia?’ 

Harry and Lisa have regularly whisked away to their cottage in the northern Ontario lake town near the Georgian Bay, roughly two hours north of Toronto.

Cindy Crawford, Goldie Hawn, Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg are just a few A-list stars reported to have homes in the Muskoka area. 

The user tweeted again: ‘I don’t have any receipts but it’s legit. He told @lisarinna he’s “off the grid” for a few days and then literally spent an entire 2 days in my friends bedroom and at her cottage. Patricia is a muskoka w**** that everyone knows, Harry included.’

Taking the news in stride, Lisa responded to an Instagram snapshot of the social interaction.

‘Yeah and I watched it was hot as hell,’ the Days of Our Lives star wrote. ‘Patricia well she’s kind of downer I did’t like her so much.’

Hamlin’s rep of more than 20 years deferred to Rinna’s Instagram comment when DailyMail.com asked about the allegations. 

While it was unclear who was the specific ‘Patricia’ from the tweets, fans hoped it was another Bravo star, Patricia Altschul from Southern Charm. 

One fan joked she would ‘watch every second of that’ with Altschul, 79, quick to write: ‘Yep… it was me !!’

Rinna was head of the pack in questioning Denise Richards for having an affair with Brandi Glanville and trying to keep it a secret from the girls and viewers at home.

On Wednesday’s season finale, Lisa whipped out a host of printed text messages between Glanville and Richards to try and prove their relationship was more than just friendly. 

Denise answered back to her former friend of two decades: ‘You better be careful saying this because yours will be shown too.’

Cheating allegations were first brought to light five years ago during a feud in Amsterdam when former housewife Kim Richards attempted to expose an affair involving Harry Hamlin when, during a volatile fight, Kim said: ‘Let’s not talk about the husband.’ 

Harry and Lisa have been married for more than 20 years and have two children together: Delilah, 22, and Amelia, 19.

She spoke to Bobby Norris and Nicole Bass about how she ditched her gal pal Amber Turner while on holiday to enjoy a romantic reunion with her then ex James.

Bobby quizzed Yazmin on their relationship and told her he’d heard ‘through the grapevine’ she had left Amber at a beach club and jetted off to meet James. 

Confronting Yaz over the situation, he said: ‘What I’ve heard through the Essex grape vine is that you skanked Amber at a beach club and jetted off to Mallorca to meet Lockie.’

Attempting to explain herself, she retorted: ‘So I was on my first girls’ holiday ever with Amber in Ibiza and I think that kind of, not worried James a little bit…

‘But he thought God she’s moving on with her life and he was messaging me every day like come out here, so I took the first flight out to Mallorca.’ 

Appearing happy with herself, she told Bobby: ‘And I’ve got to say it was the best decision I’ve ever made.’

Although the TOWIE gang have been separated due to lockdown, their is still drama brewing in Brentwood, as Amber tries to get to the bottom of Lockie’s intentions with Yaz now they are back together. 

Soon after lockdown travel restrictions were lifted last month, Yazmin and James, who were together for two years, were seen kissing at a beach club in Mallorca.

They looked as loved up as ever, showing signs they were on the road to returning to a fully fledged romance, with a source saying ‘sparks are flying’ between them. 

At the time a source told The Sun: ‘They’re not officially back together but they’re getting closer and everyone around them wouldn’t be surprised if they got back together.
