Celebs open up about their time in prison

Boris Becker is out of prison after serving just eight months of his 2.5 years sentence. The German tennis legend was found guilty of several bankruptcy offenses and sentenced in April 2022. In a March 29 interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, Becker said he felt lucky to be alive after his incarceration. “Prison life is a very dangerous place," he admitted. "It’s very scary.

The trans celebrities blazing a trail to acceptance

As the TV, film, music, and fashion industries become more and more inclusive, the number of roles for transgender people is increasing rapidly every year. Groundbreaking TV shows like the ballroom culture drama 'Pose' with almost entirely LGBTQ+ casts are putting the spotlight on the talent and beauty in the transgender community that has long been overlooked. It's a big move for representation, and indeed many actors, musicians, athletes, models, writers, and other public figures are putting themselves forward to create new spaces in their industries. Their work inspires young trans people who may be struggling with their identity in a world that sorely lacks representation of LGBTQ+ stories. Click through the following gallery to see some of the most legendary trans celebrities, and some of the rising stars, who are changing our worldview for the better.

The most high-profile celebrity lawsuits of all time

Once you hit a certain level of fame or a certain bank account balance, lawsuits become inevitable. Realistically, we'd probably all get sued for libel if all of our social media posts and conversations were analyzed with a fine-tooth comb! It's no wonder then that celebrities are constantly besieged with legal problems. Many of these lawsuits seem outrageously frivolous, while others deal with incredibly serious matters. In a case that certainly leaned toward the frivolous, Gwyneth Paltrow has come out victorious in her Utah trial over an alleged 2016 hit-and-run ski accident. Retired optometrist Terry Sanderson sued the Goop guru for US$300,000 over the incident. Both parties claim the other plowed into them. Paltrow countersued Sanderson for a symbolic amount of US$1 and the trial got underway on March 21. Given Paltrow's celebrity status, public interest was high and every moment of the trial was reported and analyzed, from her "Jeffrey Dahmer" outfit on the first day to her bizarre exchanges on the stand. However, the jury took less than three hours to come to a verdict when the two-week spectacle finally came to an end. They ruled definitively that Paltrow was not at fault and that Sanderson was fully liable for the collision. He was ordered to pay her the requested US$1, but whether or not he will be ordered to pay her legal fees will be decided at a later date. As Paltrow left the courtroom following the verdict, she stopped to tell Sanderson, "I wish you well." In an email statement, Paltrow said, “I felt that acquiescing to a false claim compromised my integrity. I am pleased with the outcome and I appreciate all of the hard work of Judge Holmberg and the jury, and thank them for their thoughtfulness in handling this case.” Click through this gallery for more details on Paltrow's trial and to look back at more of the most high-profile celebrity lawsuits of all time.

Iconic movie characters with surprisingly little screen time

When we think back on the films that we love, we often remember the characters that impacted us the most. They're the ones with the most memorable or quotable lines, or they were the creepiest that haunt our nightmares, or they're just plain central to the brilliant plot. But so much has to go into a movie, including world-building, raising the stakes, and other moments of tension and release, that you'd probably be surprised at how little screen time these characters actually get. But little screen time doesn't mean lesser impact. In fact, it's almost more impressive to consider these characters' influence after seeing how few minutes they had to reach audiences. Many actors have even won Academy Awards for less than 20 minutes of screen time! Click through to see some names and numbers that will surely surprise you.

Bholaa review: Brain bola, hola!

Bholaa Director: Ajay Devgn Actors: Ajay Devgn, Tabu Rating: 1.5/5 There is a point in this pointless movie, set inside a prison, where a boom-box is brought in, volume levels cranked up, to play a Bhojpuri song, to drown out the sound of a particularly loud inmate. There is a fully armed militia outside, led by a tiny tyrant (Deepak Dobriyal, always a pleasure on the big screen). Why this gang doesn’t storm into the jail, with hardly any cops...
