Rita Ora has said that she’s been rejected many times – but it’s only made her stronger.
The singer is enjoying huge success with her music and judging role on The Voice, while she also appears in the Fifty Shades Of Grey film.
But she told InStyle UK that having doors closed in the past had made her more determined.
She said: “I’ve been told ‘no’ so many times in my career. It doesn’t mean it’s over.
“I can remember every single ‘no’ I’ve been told in my life. They do not leave my brain. But they build you up.”
Madonna has been called out for being the fashion equivalent of a bad workman blaming her tools by Giorgio Armani.
The design heavyweight made the costume at the centre of Capegate during her Brit Awards performance, when the singer appeared to get stuck in her cape and was pulled backwards down a flight of stairs by her backing dancers.
She told The Jonathan Ross Show: “Everybody was worried that my cape was going to slide off because it’s quite heavy, so they tied it really tight around my neck. So here I am marching in like a queen, and I got to the top of the stairs and I pulled my silky string, and it would not come undone.
“And my two lovely Japanese dancers basically strangled me off the stage. I had a choice: I could either be strangled or fall with the cape, and I fell.”
But Giorgio, possibly the only person who could get away with making such a comment about Madonna, has hit back with: “The cape had a hook and she wanted a tie, and she wasn’t able to open it with her hands. That’s all there is to it. Madonna, as we all know, is very difficult.”
Jennifer Garner has revealed that her children don’t like her playing a mother on screen.
The 42-year-old actress, who has three children – nine-year-old Violet, six-year-old Seraphina and Samuel, three – with husband Ben Affleck, admitted they tend to feel a bit jealous when she pretends to be someone else’s parent.
“They don’t like when I play a mum,” she told E! News as she promoted her new film, Danny Collins.
Jennifer also revealed she cannot wait to return to work.
“I’ve been home for a long time. It’s my turn and I’m going to go to work this spring,” she told Us Weekly.
“I think I’ll work the spring and summer, maybe the fall (autumn) too, as long as some of it’s at home. I don’t think my deals are done yet so I can’t say, but yeah, I’m about to go to work.”
Robin Wright has confessed the clothes she wears on House Of Cards leave her exhausted because they are so uncomfortable.
The actress revealed she worked with the wardrobe department and her own personal stylist to design an “armour” for her character, ambitious and scheming First Lady Claire Underwood, but admits it is not easy to wear all day.
Robin said: “What’s tiring is being in the Spanx and the tight dresses – and I’m not kidding.
“You can’t breathe, and the dresses are so tight. I should get a corset, I just thought of that, that would be better.
“And having to stand up so straight all the time, that’s the most exhausting. It’s a physical strain more than anything.”
Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellows has claimed he has no say in when the series will come to an end.
The ITV period drama writer was speaking to the New York Times about the show, which is a huge hit in the US, when he said that he didn’t own the programme any more.
Asked about the rumours that Downton would end after series six, he said: “It’s not really my decision. I don’t own Downton Abbey now. NBC Universal [which owns Carnival Films] owns Downton Abbey.
“So I could walk away, but I wouldn’t walk away. It’s too much my baby. It won’t go on forever – I’m not a believer in that. But I can’t immediately now tell you where the end will be.”
Molly Ringland has revealed The Breakfast Club still has “a lot of significance” for her.
The 47-year-old Brat Pack actress starred alongside Emilio Estevez, Ally Sheedy and Judd Nelson in John Hughes’ 1985 coming-of-age school drama, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary.
“I always loved the script, and I loved the movie, but I never imagined that we would be talking about it 30 years later,” Molly told The Today Show.
The film, about various high school stereotypes, which took place over the course of one day in detention, is considered one of the best classroom movies of all time.
Molly said: “I never imagined that it would still speak to my kids. I have an 11-year-old, who just saw it for the first time and I have five-year-old twins, and I feel like it just keeps speaking to generation after generation.”
