Katilyn Dever has told how she was given words of encouragement by none other than Tom Hanks at this year’s Golden Globe awards.

Tom, 63, was honoured with the Cecil B. DeMille award at this year’s ceremony and predicted great success for the actress when they met. 

Speaking to ES Magazine, Kaitlyn, 23, revealed Tom placed his Golden Globe in her hands and said: ‘You’ve got to get used to it, because you’re going to be holding one soon.’

Tom was honoured for his services to the film industry and received a standing ovation at the ceremony.

Kaitlyn stars in the Netflix miniseries Unbelievable, which dramatises the 2008-2011 serial rapes that took place in Washington and Colorado. 

The actress plays Marie Adler, a teenager who was charged with lying about having been raped while Toni Colette and Merritt Wever play two detectives trying to discover the truth. 

Kaitlyn met with the real-life Marie who was pleased with how she was portrayed on the show and found ‘a lot of closure’ from watching it.

The star admitted the role was one of the hardest things she has ever had to do and she often cried on set due to the nature of the storyline.

She said: ‘I wanted to give it everything that I had. I had to forget about my feelings; the story seemed so much bigger than me. 

‘I’d keep myself in check by reminding myself that the headache I had from crying all day [during filming] was nothing in comparison to what she had gone through, so I could deal with this for the three or four months we were shooting.’

Kaitlyn, who received a Golden Globe nomination for her role in Unbelievable, also spoke about her mother Kathy’s stage 4 breast cancer diagnosis.

The actress said she often had to suppress her true emotions after her mother was first diagnosed as she felt a responsibility not to get upset in front of her sister, who was only six years old at the time.

However, Katilyn added that the ordeal has also helped her with her acting as well as given her perspective on ‘what matters’.

Katie Price has reportedly not seen her son Junior in four weeks as she is so busy with work. 

The former glamour model, 41, is said to have last seen Junior, 14, on Boxing Day before she flew to Thailand for a holiday and headed to Las Vegas and France for work.

According to The Sun Online, Katie has not had a chance to see the teenager since as she also has to work around his father Peter Andre’s schedule.

A source said: ‘Katie’s been so busy with work and holidays she hasn’t seen junior, plus she has to fit in around Pete’s schedule too.’

MailOnline has contacted Katie’s representative for comment.  

Katie recently spent time with the rest of her children as she uploaded a video to her Instagram Stories.

The reality star FaceTimed her eldest son Harvey, 17, who is currently staying in residential care, while she has been with Princess, 12, Jett, six, and Bunny, five.

Katie said: ‘On way home after weekend of filming so can’t wait to get in my big bed and cuddle up with my sleeping children.’ 

A source told The Mirror that Junior was ’embarrassed’ to return home to his mother’s mucky mansion as it was ‘too messy’ and preferred to stay with his father.

They said: ‘He was so embarrassed by the mess and preferred Peter’s cleaner house. He is like any teenage boy and embarrasses easily so he just didn’t visit the house.

‘He still saw his mum but wouldn’t stay overnight because he just couldn’t stand the mess.

‘Junior also needed to get to school and Katie not driving meant it was more difficult to get around.’

Schedule: According to The Sun, Katie has not had a chance to see the teenager since as she also has to work around his father Peter Andre's schedule (pictured in October 2017)

Katie made the heartbreaking decision to send Harvey – who suffers from numerous medical conditions – to residential care last year.

Harvey was born with septo-optic dysplasia, a condition that means the development of his optic nerve was unpredictable.

Katie also later discovered he is on the autism spectrum, gains weight easily because he suffers from Prader–Willi syndrome and finds mobility difficult.

On an episode of Katie Price: My Crazy Life in April 2019, the mother-of-five candidly admitted she ‘had no option’ but to send Harvey to the care centre, as she admitted it was ‘selfish’ of her to keep him at home.

As Kris showed his partner an article which claimed Harvey was going into the care facility, the former glamour model admitted: ‘I don’t want him to go, but the doctors and my mum say it is the best thing for him.’

The star then explained to the camera: ‘What they can offer Harvey that I can’t, is daily exercise, a food plan, he can’t go into the cupboards and eat. He’ll socialise with his friends, it’s more freedom for him.

‘He is 16 and I guess I’m the selfish one because I want to keep him here with me all the time.’   

It comes after Katie was declared bankrupt at the Rolls Building in London in November after she failed to meet the terms of an agreement to repay her creditors.

She is thought to be in debt of £800,000 after spending her £45million fortune on lavish beauty treatments and expensive holidays abroad.

Katie’s skiing trip marked her second holiday in two months as she enjoyed some downtime in New York with beau Kris

It has been claimed that the My Crazy Life Star jetted to New York to rekindle her romance with personal trainer Kris, 31, after recently admitting to cheating on him.

Shortly before their latest make-up break, she insisted she was single again as she eagerly told fans to ‘swing her way’ following yet another split from Kris.

The Brighton native made the revelation in a Q&A video on her YouTube channel in December, in which she also boasted about some of the ‘strangest’ places she has had sex.

Katie told fans to ‘see if you tick the boxes’, just a week after it appeared they were back together.

The brunette explained: ‘I bet there’s some things you don’t know about me, for example what I like in a man. See if you tick the boxes. If you do, swing my way.’

She went on to talk about what she likes in a man, and appeared to confirm she has split from Kris.

The Brighton native said: ‘Jesus! Where do I start? Everything I seem to think I want in a man seems to just not end up on a good thing, does it? Because I’m still here, still single, still waiting for that man.’
