Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Amer­i­can pop singer Gwen Ste­fani (right) has dropped “Ross­dale” from her last name in the wake of her di­vorce from Gavin Ross­dale. A judge ap­proved the Hol­laback Girl hit­maker’s re­quest to change it to her maiden name Gwen Re­nee Ste­fani. Al­though Gwen has al­ways gone by the same stage name, she legally changed her last name af­ter get­ting mar­ried to Gavin in 2002. The 46-year-old singer filed for di­vorce from the 50-yearold mu­si­cian in Au­gust 2015. They reached di­vorce set­tle­ment in April, re­ported Ace Show­biz. In an in­ter­view, Gwen opened up about her split from Gavin. She said, “My dreams were shat­tered. All I wanted my whole life, was to have ba­bies, be mar­ried, like what my par­ents have. It was so in­sane be­cause not only did my fam­ily break up, but then my kids are taken away like half the time, so that was re­ally like, ‘What?! What did I do?’ “Of course you go through the ‘Why me?’ and feel sorry for your­self. But then I was like, ‘No, this hap­pened to me al­ready and I made some­thing good out of it,’ and that was Tragic King­dom,” she added. Gwen has since moved on with Blake Shel­ton. She said, “It was like be­ing handed this gift of a friend who was go­ing through the ex­act same thing at the ex­act same time.”

She added, “It went from hor­ri­ble to hope­ful and ‘Wow, God, you just don’t know what’s gonna hap­pen next’.” ctor Mar­got Rob­bie (above) said that she gave a nod to her role for the film Sui­cide Squad with­out even see­ing the script.

The 22-year-old ac­tor stars as Har­ley Quinn in the much an­tic­i­pated new DC Comics pro­duc­tion. She ad­mit­ted that it was the lure of work­ing with di­rec­tor David Ayer that made her to ac­cept the role. “When I first heard about it, I was about to do a dif­fer­ent pro­ject, and they said, ‘Would you con­sider play­ing Har­ley Quinn?’ I was like, ‘Okay, can I read the script?’ And they were like, ‘There’s no script.’ ‘Is there a di­rec­tor?’ ‘David Ayer.’And I was like, ‘Well, I’m in!’ That was it,” she says.
