Princess Bride’s Cary Elwes: Robin Wright and I ‘Stay in Touch Quite a Lot’

As they wish. It was more than 30 years ago that Cary Elwes and Robin Wright were making fans swoon as star-crossed lovers in the 1987 cult classic, The Princess Bride, but as Elwes revealed to Us Weekly exclusively, the pair are still in contact!

“We stay in touch quite a lot, actually,” the Billionaire Boys Club star, 56, spilled to Us at the AFI Life Achievement Award Gala honoring Denzel Washington on Thursday, June 6.

In fact, Elwes, who played Westley, says that he and 53-year-old Wright, who played Princess Buttercup, reach out to each other for big life events. “We’re all part of this wonderful family now,” he explained. “We all check in on each other every time there’s a birthday or any kind of holiday — we always check in and then intermittently we check in and see how we’re doing.”

The now-iconic duo recalled their first meeting during an Entertainment Weekly reunion in October 2011.

“Cary was gorgeous!” the House of Cards alum said at the time. “He was the blond Zorro. We hit it off right away. We had the same sense of humor.”

The Liar Liar star was equally as impressed with the film’s leading lady. “I knew immediately that she was perfect,” he told the publication. “She had done [the soap opera] Santa Barbara. When you’ve done a lot of television, you become very seasoned very quickly. She was a pro.”

Nowadays, Elwes is living out his own fairytale romance with wife Lisa Kurbikoff, whom he wed in 2000. The pair share daughter Dominique, 12. The actor called his offspring his “proudest achievement” to Us on Thursday. Joked Elwes: “She’s a little over budget, but she’s right on schedule.”

Wright, meanwhile, married Clement Giraudet in August and shares daughter Dylan, 28, and son Hopper, 25, with ex-husband Sean Penn, whom she was married to from 1996 to 2010.

The AFI Life Achievement Award special will air on TNT on June 20 at 10 p.m. ET and on Turner Classic Movies in September as part of a larger program dedicated to Washington’s work.

How Grace Kelly Dressed Like a Princess in Christian Dior

Bettmann/Getty

GRANVILLE, France—As a child, designer Christian Dior lived in a pretty pink house, overlooking long sandy beaches and the swell of the Atlantic in Normandy.

His family left for Paris when Dior was only five, and the home is one of the only fashion museums in France dedicated to a designer. Musée Christian Dior’s new exhibition Grace Kelly: Princess in Dior (to November 17) celebrates the Dior wardrobe of the Academy Award-winning actress turned Monaco royalty.

Alfred Hitchcock’s beloved muse worked a gig at the Cannes Film Festival in 1955 into a new day job as Princess of Monaco, after she met at the festival that year, Prince Rainier III of Monaco, who was to become her husband.

Actress cast as Princess Diana in The Crown quit modelling after being told she was ‘too big’ for designer’s clothes

THE unknown actress who won the coveted role of Princess Diana in The Crown quit modelling after being told she was too big for the catwalk.

Emma Corrin, 23, switched to acting after a snub at a London Fashion Week show in 2016.

She said: “Why did the rejection of the modelling industry get to me so much?

“I think the answer is that these rejections were based on how I looked and I had always prided myself on a healthy amount of self-confidence which I was now rapidly losing.

“The real nail in the coffin was when I finally got through to a fitting for a show and the designer handed me a pair of breeches and I couldn’t get them past my calf muscles, which are pronounced because I’m a runner.

“The designer looked surprised and embarrassed as he said, “Sorry, it’s just we’re not used to girls who exercise”, implying that the models he was expecting dieted themselves in order to fit into his clothes.

Emma celebrated landing her biggest role by getting a dog and naming him Spencer, after Diana’s maiden name

“I could have slapped him.”

Cambridge graduate Emma revealed the incident in a blog called Cambridge Girl Talk.

The actress from Sevenoaks, Kent, is one of three children and comes from a wealthy background.

Speech therapist mum Juliette and businessman dad Christopher, 65, live in a six-bedroom home worth £2.5million.

She can be heard cooing over her pet in videos and in one she says: “Spencer you are gorgeous.”

Your complete guide to Royal baby fashion

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge iPads

With the new Royal baby set to be born any day now, we can imagine the Duchess of Cambridge has already stocked up on lots of cute children’s clothes, and there’s no doubt she will be returning to some of her favourite brands that she’s shopped for Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Kate has famously always opted for traditional clothes, including lots of shorts for Prince George (there is a good reason for both of these, if you follow those links), and the general public loves it, with many items selling out as soon as the Royal children wear them (what Kate effect?).

So here’s your ultimate guide of the baby and children’s fashion brands Kate and William love the most, and where you can shop them.

G.H. Hurt & Son

The family owned brand saw a huge spike in visits to their site (and by huge, we mean 100,000 in less than 24 hours) when Princess Charlotte was presented to the world outside the Lindo Wing, swaddled in its traditional knitted shawl.

Frozen 2 trailer reignites fan frenzy with hints of new songs, messages about climate change and maybe Disney’s first gay princess

FANS of the £1billion Disney blockbuster Frozen are ready to Let It Go again.

In case you somehow missed the global frenzy the first time round in 2013, the musical tale of Snow Queen Elsa and her fearless sister Anna became one of the highest grossing animated movies ever.

Fans of Disney's Frozen are excited for the sequel after the release of the new trailer
Disney

This week saw the release of the first two-minute trailer for the sequel, which notched up more than 116million views in 24 hours.

Frozen 2 will not be out until November, yet social media is buzzing with speculation.

Kate Jackson takes a look at the frosty phenomenon and what to expect from the sequel . . .

The £1billion phenomenon

NOT since Star Wars has a movie dominated the toy market in the way Frozen has, with Elsa dolls out-selling Barbie.

Disney is estimated to have been shifting a billion dollars-worth of Frozen related products in both 2014 and 2015.

In the US there has been £430million worth of Frozen dolls sold

Elsa doll sales, like the soft toy below, were worth £430million in the US alone.

And the blue evening dress worn by Elsa as she sings power ballad Let It Go is Disney’s all-time best-selling costume — with Anna’s outfit in second place.

Children were named after the tormented ice queen, merchandise spun out of control and Let It Go was belted out in homes and playgrounds across the world.

In Britain, 1.45million DVDs were sold in the first three weeks after the film’s release in 2013 and the Frozen Snow Glow Elsa doll became the most popular Christmas toy.

The original movie cost £117million to make and Disney is estimated to have shifted over a billion dollars worth of merchandise

It didn’t stop there, a year later merchandise continued to increase tenfold, and was still going strong in 2016.

Fans could buy everything from Frozen chairs to ride-on toys cars, board games and backpacks.

And it was Elsa and Olaf, the naive snowman, who were shifting the goods, rather than the film’s heroine Anna.

On top of that, the icy tale proved to be the biggest-selling DVD of this decade, shifting more than three million copies in 2014 alone.

Fans could buy everything from Frozen chairs to bikes and backpacks

The original Disney movie cost £117million to make and went on to be the highest grossing animated film of all time, taking $ 1.287billion. It won two Oscars — Best Animated film and Best Original Song — plus a Golden Globe and a Bafta.

However, Spencer Lacey Ganus — who played teenage Elsa — earned just £600 for her one-day of work. She ended up with ten times that from royalties.

New viewers (if there are any) start here

INSPIRED by Hans Christian Andersen’s The Snow Queen, Frozen is a fairy tale for the modern era, with fierce princesses Elsa and Anna as the heroines.

In the original movie the kingdom of Arendelle is trapped in an eternal winter after princess Elsa’s incredible powers are unleashed following her coronation as Queen.

Frozen looks at the relationship between sisters Elsa and Anna, as well as the friends they meet along the way like snowman Olaf

Elsa flees, and her sister Anna, her new friend Kristoff and his loyal reindeer Sven and naive snowman Olaf set off to persuade her to end her self-imposed isolation and save her homeland.

Meanwhile, the Duke of Weselton schemes to take control of Arendelle by getting rid of both Elsa and Anna.

Elsa is able to conquer all – but only by letting go of her fear.

Where STAR they now?

KRISTEN Bell: Anna

Before voicing heroic princess Anna, Kristen, 38, had appeared in US comedies Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Couples Retreat.

The mum of two, who is married to actor Dax Shepard, had dreamed of being in a Disney animation since she was four.

She said of the movie’s success: “When we were making it, there was a part of me thinking, ‘This is really, really special’.”

Idina Menzel: Elsa

As Frozen brought global fame, Glee actress Idina was dealing with a divorce.

The New Yorker, 47, was balancing the glamour with going to “mediation with my ex, figuring out which days he was visiting our son and the sadness and regret.”

When asked a couple of years ago if her son, now nine, was excited about Frozen 2, she admitted: “He doesn’t give a s***.”

Jonathan Groff: Kristoff

While voicing Kristoff the Broadway actor was also filming the American TV series Looking, in which he got to have raunchy scenes with History Boys actor Russell Tovey.

On stage in 2015 he played King George III in Hamilton, which earned him a Tony Award nomination.

Jonathan, who stars in Netflix crime drama Mindhunter, describes Frozen as “like crack for children”.

Josh Glad: Olaf

The voice of the world’s most famous snowman grew up in sunny Florida and didn’t see snow until he was 15.

Prior to Frozen, the 37-year-old played tech icon Steve Wozniak in the film Jobs and more recent movies include Murder On The Orient Express and Beauty And The Beast.

The dad of two said: “If I had to be remembered for one character, Olaf would be fine.”

The trailer clues

THE teaser has a dark, fearful tone, starting with Elsa running across a rampaging sea, which many fans have interpreted as her being trapped on a mystical island.

The girls are wearing new combat-style outfits and Anna is wielding a sword, which some have likened to a superhero movie.

Disney

Many fans think that the new film will have underlying messages about climate change after Elsa is seen trying to freeze an ocean[/caption]

And rather than winter, it seems to be autumn — although this may not be in their native Arendelle.

Writer and director Jennifer Lee said it will be “bigger, more epic” than Frozen, adding: “They’re going to go far out of Arendelle.”

While most fans have been poring over the trailer, they should be paying more attention to the poster.

Josh Gad, the voice of snowman Olaf, tweeted: “If you look hard enough, this teaser poster will reveal quite a few surprises (like how pretty a snowflake is up close).”

There is speculation that it is set in a different land as we can see an autumnal forest rather than the snowy scenes of Arendelle
There is speculation that it is set in a different land as we can see an autumnal forest rather than the snowy vistas of Arendelle

There has also been speculation that Frozen 2 could send a message about climate change.

In the trailer, Elsa is either trying to reduce the temperature of the sea as she crosses it or she may simply be freezing it so she is able to walk across it.

It could, though, simply be that this story takes place during a different season or that the characters are in a different land.

The other problem with the climate change theory is that Frozen is clearly set before the industrial revolution, so any rise in the Earth’s temperature is unlikely to have been made by humans.

The new songs

THERE were two versions of mega-hit song Let It Go in the original movie – the empowering one sung by Elsa as she refuses to hide her secret powers any more, and a pop version by Demi Lovato at the end credits.

The song Let It Go won a Grammy and an Oscar, and sold more than ten million copies in 2014, making it the year’s fifth best-selling song.

AP:Associated Press

Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez have promised at least seven new songs for Frozen 2[/caption]

Husband and wife team Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez have promised at least seven new songs.

Director Jennifer Lee reckons one could rival Let It Go’s success. She said in November: “We have a new song that I think is an evolution. It’s our own song. Bobby and Kristen just delivered it three weeks ago. We’ve been working with them for two years and this song just came and I love it.”

The snowflake

THERE is just one bold image on the new movie’s official poster – this snowflake-like formation with four diamonds.

Each diamond contains a different symbol inside it, and fans have speculated that they might stand for the four elements of earth, water, air and fire. Or perhaps, for the four seasons.

Others suspect the four diamonds might stand for four kingdoms, and that the snowflake’s eight points might hint at more princesses.

The new characters: could we have Disney’s first gay princess?

BLINK and you’ll miss them but two new characters are glimpsed in the Frozen 2 teaser — a redhead female and a blonde figure, who is blown upwards in a pile of leaves.

Some fans reckon they could be Anna and Kristoff’s children, even though the pair haven’t aged.

Some think that the film could break new ground and feature Disney’s first ever gay princess after many fans campaigned for Elsa to have a girlfriend

Could these be voiced by the new cast members, Westworld star Evan Rachel Wood and Black Panther actor Sterling K Brown?

Not even respected movie website IMDB knows what their characters names will be in Frozen 2 — yet.

An alternative theory is the sequel will glow under the LGBT rainbow.

Some eagle-eyed viewers spotted a scene with an unknown character being blown upwards in a pile of leaves

There is a twitter campaign titled #GiveElsaAGirlfriend, where lesbian fans have pleaded with the writer to have the heroine fall in love with a woman.

Idina Menzel, who plays Elsa, gave the idea her support, saying: “It would be a great thing.”

Writer Jennifer Lee was also very aware of the drive and said: “We have tons of conversations about it and we’re really conscientious about these things.”

George Clooney Defends Meghan Markle, Says She’s ‘Vilified’ By Press Like Princess Diana

(Photo Credit: PR Photos)

George Clooney has come to the defense of new royal Meghan Markle, claiming she is being “vilified and chased” in the same way Princess Diana was in the 1990s.

The Hollywood icon is reportedly a close friend of the Duchess of Sussex and was a guest at her wedding to Prince Harry in 2018. Speaking to Australian magazine Who, Clooney noted the consequences of the media scrutiny of the former actress.

“I do want to say, they’re just chasing Meghan Markle everywhere,” he said. “She’s a woman who is seven months pregnant and she has been pursued and vilified and chased in the same way that Diana was, and it’s history repeating itself. We’ve seen how that ends.”

Diana died in a car crash in a Paris tunnel in 1997 while being chased by paparazzi on motorcycles.

Markle was initially praised for bringing a bit of color and culture to the “stale” and “outdated” British royal family. But once she married her prince charming, the media turned on her and has become increasingly critical.

Last week one paper published a personal letter allegedly written by Markle to her estranged father in which she begged him to “stop lying….stop exploiting my relationship with my husband.”

Clooney has slammed this invasion of her privacy.

“I can’t tell you how frustrating that is, just seeing them broadcast a letter from a daughter to a father, she’s getting a raw deal there and I think it’€s irresponsible and I’€m surprised by that,” he said.

Meanwhile, one CNN contributor has noted that “the problem isn’t Meghan Markle. It’s the British monarchy.”

Kate Maltby writes “As Britain awaits the birth of Meghan’s first child with Prince Harry, it seems clear that the reality of a royal child with a black grandmother has brought to the fore prejudices that were more generally veiled around the announcement of her marriage.”

Most recently, Markle’s closest supporters spoke anonymously to People magazine about the “global bullying” the Duchess is receiving.

Meanwhile, a Washington Post article this week breaks down the racially-charged hate for the first biracial woman to marry into the House of Windsor, per CNN.

Kate Middleton’s nickname for Princess Charlotte is the cutest

Our hearts!

We love that the royal family have cute nicknames for each other. Did you know that Prince George calls Prince William ‘pops’?

Prince Harry has a very sweet nickname for Kate Middleton – he reportedly calls her ‘Cath’ – and he refers to his wife, Meghan Markle, as ‘Meg’. And Meghan’s pals call Harry ‘Haz’. We also know that Kate calls Prince William ‘babe’, and that he calls her ‘darling’.

But do you know what Kate calls little Princess Charlotte?

The Duchess of Cambridge was reportedly out doing a bit of last minute Christmas shopping when an onlooker spotted the family.

According to Sarah Daniels, who was at the discount store The Range at the same time, Charlotte was sitting on the floor while her mum picked out some gifts, and Kate said: ‘Get up, poppet’.

The royal fan added: ‘I heard George say ‘Charlotte, pick that up’ and the penny suddenly dropped as to who they were. It seemed like a lovely family outing for them the day before Christmas Eve.

‘We are used to all the pomp and ceremony that goes with the Royal Family but it was great to see Kate shopping with her children in the kind of discount store the rest of us use.’

How cute is that?

Can we all stop unfairly judging The Princess Switch please?

Before you form your opinion, consider this…

The Princess Switch

The Christmas countdown is officially on, and with the cold weather setting in and Yule logs and mince pies coming into the shops, we’re feeling more festive than ever.

Now all we need is a new Christmas film to obsess over with a mug of mulled wine, and last week, that is exactly what we got – thank you, Netflix.

The Princess Switch, released last Friday, is this year’s answer to A Christmas Prince, and let’s just say it doesn’t disappoint.

Vanessa Hudgens plays the two leads in this Parent Trap esque flick, involving a European Duchess switching places with an ordinary baker from Chicago, who looks identical to her, just one week before Christmas. Inevitably they fall in love with each other’s partners, want each other’s lives and somehow everything ties together perfectly in the end.

The Princess Switch

Netflix

I’m not going to lie, there are a few gaping plot holes and I can’t pretend that I understood everything. Why didn’t Stacy report that her blender had been sabotaged and get a new one? Why was the strange old man that kept popping up everywhere to deliver wise quotes never explained? And HOW did the butler Frank De Luca survive that almighty fall off the bridge?

And yet, I loved it.

The film has proved to be pretty divisive, but in this writer’s opinion, it’s all pretty unfair.

There’s no point in comparing it to an Academy award winning film because it never pretended to be one – it’s set in a make-believe European country and packed with cliché quotes about Christmas wishes, orphans wanting to be princesses (Hello Princess Diaries 2), fake snow ball fights and makeover musical montage scenes.

Let’s call a spade a spade. It’s the perfect winter film – especially if you’re an over-worked stressed out millennial who just wants to switch off and feel festive.

Sure, if you’re a film buff whose highlight of Christmas is dissecting the artistic camera work of It’s A Wonderful Life, then give this a miss. But if you tend to like films that score less than a 6.3/10 on IMDb and you feel like putting your feet up, this is a must-see.

Here’s why The Princess Switch is well worth a watch…

1. Lady Margaret Delacourt’s wardrobe:

The Duchess of Montenaro is impeccably dressed, and the scene where Stacy explores her wardrobe for the first time rivals Carrie Bradshaw‘s SATC big wardrobe reveal. We’re talking Blair Warldorf style berets, Camilla Mendes esque mini skirts and some serious Jackie O inspired tailoring. And don’t even get us started on the red and gold ballgown that she wore to the royal dance – that is reason enough to watch.

2. Robin Soans’ multiple cameos

The big unanswered question from The Princess Switch has to be the identity of the wise old man (played by Robin Soans), who turned up everywhere (even within the palace walls) to deliver some much needed Christmas wisdom. We assume of course that he is a sort of modern day fairy godmother, but still – why doesn’t the character have anything better to do?! How does he know everything?! And did he literally follow Stacy all the way from New York? There are so many questions and we really would have liked some reassurance Netflix. That being said, he did save the day on numerous occasions so we’ll let it slide.

3. Kevin the baker’s bod

Kevin the baker! Who knew that body was hiding under your apron? Well, Lady Margaret does now, but it’s safe to say we were all surprised and understandably, it is of course a highlight.

4. The hilarious British accents

Somehow the accents in the mythical European country of Belgravia (yes, Belgravia!!) are English, same with the country of Montenaro, where Duchess Margaret Delacourt comes from. Get ready for some very clipped old school Mary Poppins style accents. Let’s just say it’s in the same league as Gossip Girl‘s Lord Marcus Beaton.

5. That moment of Inception

In one particular scene, Lady Margaret posing as Stacy and Kevin from The Princess Switch sit down to watch a Christmas film, scrolling past A Christmas Inheritance, before landing on A Christmas Prince. Yes, really. The characters in a Netflix original Christmas film just watched another Netflix original Christmas film. What is real life? We don’t know anymore.

6. The Meghan Markle effect

Did anyone else think that Stacy as Lady Margaret had elements of Meghan Markle about her? A feminist royal who wanted to have a hands-on approach in terms of official events, and despite being a high profile princess-to-be, insisted on being heard, not just seen. Just saying – we loved the millennial references.

7. The references to other chick flicks

One thing that has really got viewers talking is the inspiration from other romantic comedies. There’s a dancing in a fairy-lit canopy scene that is almost identical to A Cinderella Story, a Parent Trap esque hair cutting scene and even a moment that mirrors a Princess Diaries 2 scene where an orphanage of children get to be princesses for the day. One scene that excited viewers the most however was when Kevin gave Margaret a locket, looking a lot like a High School Musical 2 scene (also starring Vanessa), where Troy gave Gabriella a necklace. Basically, The Princess Switch is an amalgamation of every single romantic comedy you’ve ever seen, and if that’s not reason enough to watch it, we don’t know what is.

Be right back – off to watch this again.

Princess Eugenie’s weird wedding request that compared hubby to doomed literary character

Princess Eugenie may want to reread “The Great Gatsby.”

Kate Middleton Is Royal Wedding Guest Chic (Again!) for Princess Eugenie’s Big Day

Once again, Kate Middleton is the epitome of wedding guest chic.

The royal mom arrived at the royal wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank on Friday, shortly after returning to royal duty after taking some time out of the public eye following the birth of her third child, Prince Louis, in April.

Kate wore a burgundy ensemble by her own wedding dress designer, Alexander McQueen, and a matching velvet beret by go-to milliner Philip Treacy.

She and Prince William quickly headed inside after being driven to the chapel door, taking their seats next to newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. (The couple, who wed in 2011 and whose children George, 5, and Charlotte, 3, even snuck in some hand holding before the ceremony began!)

Kate, 36, returned to her royal duties following maternity leave on Oct. 2 when she visited the Sayers Croft Forest School and Wildlife Garden. She took a short two-mile drive from her home at Kensington Palace to a recreation ground in Paddington, London, to spend time with local school children and learn how getting their hands dirty in a wildlife garden and outdoor learning helps with their well-being.

The 36-year-old royal is set to take part in sporadic engagements during October and through to the end of the year. She will return to her usual busy schedule come January.

Despite her time off from work, Kate has had a busy wedding season. In addition to helping marshal Prince George, 5, and Princess Charlotte, 3, who served in the bridal party at the wedding of her longtime friend, Sophie Carter, last month, she was her usual stylish self to celebrate the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle less than a month after Louis’ arrival.

Despite her royal status, Princess Kate has developed a clever trick to avoid upstaging the bride on her big day: Pulling a royal rewear!

For Sophie’s September nuptials, Kate wore a cornflower blue Catherine Walker & Co coat dress, which she previously wore when she arrived in Berlin with Prince William and their two eldest children during their July 2017 tour of Poland and Germany.

At the May wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan, she appeared to pull an epic royal rewear with an off-white structured-collared coat dress. In July 2015, Kate wore a very similar piece to Princess Charlotte’s christening. She pulled out the ensemble again at the Queen’s official birthday celebrations, Trooping the Colour, in 2016.

Princess Eugenie’s wedding dress is a total dream and we’re in love

That train though!!

Princess Eugenie’s dress gave us major old Hollywood vibes and she painted an utterly romantic picture walking up the chapel’s staircase, with a dramatic train trailing behind her. Prince Andrew apparently gave away some key elements of the dress away prior to the big day as he revealed he was worried about stepping on the train of her gown.

Designed by Peter Pilotto, the folded, slightly off the shoulder neckline dipped down into a lower V at the back for just a flash of skin. According to ITV, the subtly patterned fabric on the gown was designed especially for Princess Eugenie.

She accessorised with a pair of emerald and diamond earrings, which were matched beautifully to a tiara she borrowed from her grandmother Queen Elizabeth.
