Karlie Kloss hates confrontation

Los Angeles, Jan 28 (IANS) Model Karlie Kloss hates confrontation and tries to avoid arguments because she always loses.

The 23-year-old feels “uncomfortable” getting into arguments because she never comes off well, but is learning how to handle the “ups and downs” of relationships, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“I definitely don’t like negative confrontation. I’m not great at arguing. I’m not good at getting into fights,” Kloss told ELLE magazine.

“I always lose and it makes me really uncomfortable. But I guess, true relationships and friendships come with ups and downs so it’s about figuring out how to work with that,” she added.

Michael Jackson drama sparks controversy

An upcoming drama has sparked controversy after casting British actor Joseph Fiennes as the late King of Pop Michael Jackson .

The special – being produced by Sky Arts – will focus on an alleged road trip where Jackson was joined by late actors Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando.

Having been in the pipeline for several years, the drama will also feature Stockard Channing as Taylor and Brian Cox as Brando. However, it’s the casting of Fiennes that has annoyed some people, reports mirror.co.uk.

While Jackson was born African-American, his appearance changed drastically during his career.

The singer’s changing face was down to him suffering from vitaligo, as well as his dependence on cosmetic surgery.

Still, many people have stormed social media to criticise those in charge for casting Fiennes in the role.

One person tweeted: “Even getting white actors to play black people now #outrageous #OscarsSoWhite.”

Another wrote: “i love joseph fiennes but wtf were they thinking casting him as michael jackson?”

A third added: “Appalled by the Joseph Fiennes casting. Somebody so hideously rich has the freedom to choose what roles they say yes to. He saw no issue.”

Fiennes has revealed that he considers the role a ‘challenge’.

He said: “It’s a challenge. It’s a comedy.

“It doesn’t poke mean fun but it’s a story, possibly urban legend, whereby Michael, Marlon Brando, and Liz Taylor were all together the day before 9/11 doing a concert.

“Airspace was shut down and they couldn’t get out and Michael had the bright idea to go to hire a car and drive.”

A.J. McLean ‘uncomfortable’ with daughter singing ‘Sex’

Musician A.J. McLean finds it “awkward” and “uncomfortable” that his three-year-old daughter Ava loves his song “Sex”.

The 38-year-old says Ava – who he has with wife Rochelle – knows every word of the raunchy track, even if she doesn’t understand its meaning.

“What’s really uncomfortable is her favourite song of my new album is a song called ‘Sex’,” McLean told people.com.

“She doesn’t know that’s what it’s called, but she knows the words. She just sings along. I’m like ‘Oh God. Don’t. That’s so weird! It’s awkward. You’re making it awkward’,” he added.

Kidman strips off for steamy bath scene

Actress Nicole Kidman has flashed her nipples in a steamy bath scene for “Queen of the Desert”.

The Oscar-winning actress wears just a nightshirt as she submerges herself in a bathtub in the middle of the desert during the sensual scene, reports mirror.co.uk.

The raunchy moment is just one of the erotic scenes Kidman shot for the historical epic in which she plays Gertrude Bell, the historian, novelist and member of the British secret service who was instrumental to setting the course for the new political order in the Middle East around 1920.

Director Werner Herzog admitted that the actress didn’t shy away from putting her body on display.

He said: “We had a folded canvas bathtub that we had in our equipment in the caravan, and Nicole said to me, ‘Werner, I have to take a bath, I want to take a bath. And I said, ‘Let me write it into the screenplay.'”

Explaining why she asked for the scene to be included, Kidman insisted it wasn’t just a bit of added titilation.

“I thought that was such a great addition because it really shows this woman’s love of the world,” the star said.

“I think a woman of that era who goes to live like that is an unusual, extraordinary person and I’m so glad that I got the chance to explore her for a portion of her life.”
