Blake is seen modelling a mesh bra and a long auburn wig styled in retro waves, a slick of berry lipstick on her lips.

Another dramatically different look for the role sees Blake don a short, dark blonde wig and undergo a serious makeunder.

Crediting make-up artist Vivian Baker for the transformation, which included eye bags and acne scarring, she joked, ‘Facetune broke’.

In The Rhythm Section, Blake portrays a woman seeking revenge on the people who orchestrated a plane crash which killed her family.

The actress stars alongside Jude Law and Sterling K. Brown in the film, which has been directed by Reed Morano and written by Mark Burnell.

Although the suspense thriller was filmed in Dublin, the movie set is decorated to look like London with additional filming locations in Spain.

Paramount Pictures released a statement in December 2017 saying that filming had been temporarily suspended as Blake sustained an injury to her hand while shooting, but production would resume as soon as possible.

She was spotted back at work in January 2018, but needed a second hand surgery which caused the film to be delayed.

During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Morano said Lively was doing well, but there were issues.

‘The problem is that normally, that kind of an injury, you would have 4 to 6 weeks of rehab and then you would wear a splint. We have to go into stunts, so it’s very complicated,’ she said.

The release date has been delayed three times, but fans can finally see the movie from January 31.

Angela Simmons has opened up about the painful moment she had to tell her son Sutton Jr., three, that his father Sutton Tennyson had been killed after her one-time fiance was gunned down at an Atlanta home in November 2018.

In a preview for Growing Up Hip Hop’s Thursday episode, Simmons, 32, explained the circumstances of the family tragedy, which came less than a year after she and Tennyson had called off their engagement.

‘How do you explain to a three-year-old that they’re never going to see them again?’  Simmons told life coach Chenoa Maxwell in the clip.

Simmons said she had to tell the child about the tragic death when the boy thought he had seen his dad in a vehicle similar looking to the one his father drove.

‘I was with my son, and super emotional right, even to talk about it. He was looking out the window and he’s like, “Daddy, white car.”‘

She continued: ‘I questioned him, “Where do you see him?” or “Who is Daddy? What does he look like?”

‘I’m asking him. I’m like, “Do you want to see your dad?” and he’s like, “Yes.”’

Tragic end: Sutton was fatally shot in Atlanta on November 2, 2018. He was seen holding his son in a photo Simmons posted in his memory

She said that the child was keenly perceptive and precocious in sensing the somber tones.

‘So he comes over and I start showing him videos and pictures and stuff, and he stopped,’ Simmons said. ‘It’s not like he’s full conversational yet, so this is what kind of makes it emotional. He was like, “Is he alive?”’

Simmons noted that ‘alive’ is not a common word in her son’s vocabulary: ‘For him ask that is like, whoa. Did you really just say, “Is he alive?”

‘I was just like, “No – he’s not,”’ Simmons said. ‘This is the first time I’m having to explain it to him, which is, like, super sad, because he’s three. How do you explain to a three-year-old that they’re never going to see them again?’

She said the did it in her ‘own way, which is like, “He’s in Heaven, he’s with God.”

Simmons said that her son ‘kind of laid his head in my chest’ and wept.

‘And he told me he was sad,’ she said. ‘He’s a happy kid, and that whole day, he was just kind of, like, mopey and sad. And I told him, “I got you. You’re OK. You’re good.” And he was like, “Okay, I got you.” It was that conversation, but it was super hard to have that conversation with him.’

She said that her grief over Tennyson’s killing remains ‘one of the biggest things’ she’s dealing with.

Michael Williams has been charged with murder in the case, as authorities said he shot Tennyson 13 times in his driveway in an attack witnesses said was over money, TMZ reported last year. Williams was identified by his license plate and subsequently turned himself in, police told the outlet. He has denied the allegations.

Glow actress Betty Gilpin has been cast to play controversial conservative media figure Ann Coulter in American Crime Story: Impeachment.

The third installment of the Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winning series will focus on the 1998 presidential sex scandal involving Bill Clinton and White House intern Monica Lewinsky. 

Coulter was a legal adviser for the lawyers representing Paula Jones, who brought a sexual harassment suit against President Bill Clinton at the time. 

Betty, 33, is an actress known for her roles on Nurse Jackie and Glow, the latter of which has twice earned her a nomination for a Primetime Emmy Award.

New role: Betty Gilpin is set to portray Ann Coulter in the upcoming third season of true crime anthology series American Crime Story: Impeachment

Gilpin’s casting comes on the heels of another announcement, that Billy In The Street actor Billy Eichner has secured the role of famed right-wing journalist Matt Drudge, founder of Drudge Report. 

Drudge was the first to reveal the news of the White House affair on January 17, 1998, catapulting himself to fame by reporting that Newsweek editors were sitting on a story by investigative reporter Michael Isikoff.

In addition to Gilpin’s and Eichner’s casting in the show, other stars include Annaleigh Ashford as Jones, Clive Owen as Clinton, Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp and Beanie Feldstein as Monica Lewinsky.

No word yet on a casting decision for Hilary Clinton (assuming she will be included in the story). 

Monica Lewinsky herself is on board to produce the series.

The Ryan Murphy-produced show will be based on the book A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President, by Jeffrey Toobin.  

The series is set to premiere on FX on September 27, 2020.

The first two seasons of American Crime Story caused quite a stir on television, first examining the phenomenon that was the O.J. Simpson trial, then looking at the catastrophic events leading up to the assassination of Gianni Versace at the hands of spree killer Andrew Cunanan.

She has been busy practicing for her Super Bowl halftime performance these last few weeks. 

And Jennifer Lopez shared a silly video of herself ‘waiting for her cue’ on Thursday. 

The video began with Jennifer, 50, appearing to bust a dance move as she bent her legs and placed a hand on the ground.   

'Waiting for my cue': Jennifer Lopez is already waiting on the sidelines for her big moment

She then popped up swiftly and broke out into laughter. 

‘I just be here on the 25 yard line waiting for my cue,’ Jennifer said as she tossed her microphone from one hand to the next.

The songstress looked fabulous in her Guess crop top, floral leggings and slicked back hair bun.  

Jennifer paced around for a moment before the video hilariously ended with a photo of her sitting on the floor, still waiting for her big moment.

‘Waiting for my cue like… Only 10 days until #SuperBowlLIV!’ she captioned the photo, along with a star and football emoji. 

‘The countdown is on,’ she continued. ‘Are you ready? #PepsiHalftime #SBLIV.’ 

Pepsi announced in September that Lopez would be co-headlining the Superbowl Halftime Show with Shakira.

In addition to practicing for her show, JLo has received multiple nominations for her portrayal of a hardened stripper in Hustlers. 

She was, however, one of the more notable snubs when Oscar nominations were announced last week.
