Johnny Depp failed to overturn the ruling in his “wife beater” libel case. The judges refused his application for a new trial on the grounds that a second hearing was unlikely to produce a different outcome: “The claim was based on a story in The Sun alleging that he had beaten his former wife, Amber Heard. After a three-week trial in the High Court last year, in which both Mr. Depp and Ms. Heard gave evidence, Mr. Justice Nicol found that the allegation was true.”

Brie Larson doesn’t believe there is a beauty standard which is … a choice.

I’d hope that me being so open with my career, at this stage, would help the next man, the guy that wants to be the assistant DOP, the guy that wants to be a producer.”
