Keira Knightley Covers "Elle"

Sneak Peek new images of actress Keira Knightley in the April 2018 issue of "Elle" (Canada) magazine, wearing Chanel, photographed by Liz Collins:

"I was meant to be named 'Kiera', after a Russian ice skater who was on the TV one day," said Knightley.

"My dad fancied her and nicked her name for me.

"But it was my mum who went to register my birth, and she accidentally spelled 'ei' instead of 'ie' because my mum's crap at spelling. Apparently, when she came back he said: 'What The Fuck? You’ve spelt her name wrong!' What were they going to do, though? Once it’s on the piece of paper, it’s on the piece of paper. And that’s me. A spelling error..."

Knightley, the official 'face' of Chanel since 2007, continues to rep the company with 'Coco Mademoiselle' fragrances.

New films for Knightley include an adaptation of "The Other Typist" by Suzanne Rindell.

Macaulay Culkin Gets Candid About Michael Jackson: He Liked Being Around Kids

Macaulay Culkin Gets Candid About Michael Jackson: He Liked Being Around Kids
Macaulay Culkin doesn't grant too many interviews, but he recently sat down with Marc Maron on his Wtf podcast where he candidly discussed his friendship with Michael Jackson. The unlikely duo apparently had a lot more in common than just rising to fame at a young age, according to Culkin. In addition, he also briefly delved into his relationship with Jackson's daughter Paris. Culkin is Paris Jackson's godfather and he is fiercely protective of her, which he makes abundantly clear in the interview.

While talking to Marc Maron, Macaulay Culkin recalled the first time that he met Michael Jackson. The two first met while Culkin was doing a performance of The Nutcracker when Jackson came backstage with Donald Trump of all people. Jackson introduced himself before Culkin's performance and then realized that he recognized him. Culkin had this to say.

"He came backstage before the show. He loved dance,

Magical First Trailer For Disney's The Nutcracker And The Four Realms

Disney has released the first trailer for The Nutcracker and the Four Realms and it's quite a wonderfully magical visual treat. I wasn't sure what to expect from this movie, but I actually really like what I'm seeing in this trailer. It looks like a film that the whole family will enjoy. The movie also has a great cast, and here's the synopsis:

All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift from her late mother. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight), a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets.
