Re­vealed:Har­ryPot­ter­hat­edSexandthe City

The Jewish Chronicle - - FEATURES -

DANIEL RAD­CLIFFE AND Sex and the City star Kim Cat­trall have teamed up in the film My Boy Jack. Cat­trall plays the Amer­i­can wife of Rud­yard Ki­pling, while Rad­cliffe plays their son, Jack Ki­pling. Cat­trall has ad­mit­ted to be­ing quite a fan of the young ac­tor. She en­joyed Harry Pot­ter and man­aged to get an eye­ful of the un­clothed Rad­cliffe in the Lon­don pro­duc­tion of Equus. Un­for­tu­nately Rad­cliffe has not shown such en­thu­si­asm for the ac­tress’s work. He ad­mits to hav­ing been “a lit­tle freaked out” by Sex and the City when he was younger, but now his new co-star has given him his own box set of DVDs of the se­ries, I imag­ine the pres­sure is on for him to watch — and en­joy — them.

Par­ents across the land, beware… not only is Dis­ney mak­ing High School Mu­si­cal 3 at the mo­ment, but they have just con­firmed that there will soon be a High School Mu­si­cal 4 get­ting un­der way. But will Zac Efron and his co-star Vanessa Hud­gens be re­turn­ing for the fourth in­stal­ment? A source at Dis­ney Chan­nel World­wide has said: “We have to have a new story. Will we have all the cast back? Prob­a­bly not, but we hope to have some.” Con­sid­er­ing the pair are al­ready 20 and 19 re­spec­tively, it may well be time for them to leave high school.

What a week it has been for the ab­surdly beau­ti­ful Natalie Port­man. The Star Wars ac­tress is not only be­ing lined up to star in the new film ver­sion of the Emily Brontë clas­sic novel, Wuther­ing Heights, but has also been spot­ted on the arm of a new man. Port­man has al­ways liked to keep her private life private. She pos­i­tively blushed when I ques­tioned her on the ro­mance in her life, but she’s seen in New York get­ting rather cosy with bearded folk singer De­van­dra Ban­hart. A passer-by told the News of The World: “They looked loved-up and couldn’t keep their hands off each other.”

Gwyneth Pal­trow has hit back at sug­ges­tions that her mar­riage to Coldplay front man Chris Martin is in any way trou­bled. The Shake­speare in Love ac­tress said the ru­mours are ab­surd and that hav­ing a fam­ily has made her feel com­plete. Pal­trow says: “I used to al­ways be search­ing and al­ways lonely. I never feel like that any more. Hav­ing a fam­ily has made me feel whole.” She in­sists the rea­son her and her hus­band are rarely snapped to­gether is be­cause “we just don’t want to be one of those cou­ples”, and ex­plains that the press in­ter­pret­ing this as them hav­ing prob­lems is just “ridicu­lous”.

Amy Wine­house’s reclu­sive be­hav­iour has been caus­ing con­cerns. A source told The Mail on Sun­day: “Amy is stay­ing at home as much as pos­si­ble be­cause she is so up­set about her skin. She is dev­as­tated her skin is in such a bad way, she’s very low.” Wine­house has also just pulled out of record­ing her third album which was planned for late 2008 — it is now un­likely to hap­pen un­til 2009. Some friends have bizarrely sug­gested that a re­cent ob­ses­sion with iron­ing could be the cause for the de­lay, say­ing: “She has be­come ab­so­lutely ob­sessed with iron­ing things. Not just her clothes but also tow­els, sheets, scarves. Any­thing, re­ally. She’s a very ob­ses­sive per­son and has al­ways been ad­dicted to some­thing.” If only that was as rock’n’roll as she got.

Tzofit Grant will not be tak­ing part as a celebrity part­ner in the next se­ries of Strictly Come Danc­ing. There has been spec­u­la­tion in the Is­raeli press that the wife of Chelsea man­ager Avram Grant was to ap­pear in the BBC1 ball­room-danc­ing tal­ent show, but she has told Schmooze there is no truth in the story — al­though she ad­mit­ted it would great if there was. Grant re­fused to go into de­tails, but did re­veal that she is work­ing on a play — I think she means a stage drama, rather than a free­kick rou­tine.
