Darkest Hour director Joe Wright seems to have found love again — just days after confirming the end of his seven-year marriage to Ravi Shankar's daughter, Anoushka, 36, with whom he has two young sons.

The 45-year-old Englishman is reported to be dating Hollywood bombshell

Haley Bennett, 30, left, star of thriller The Girl On The Train.

The pair were spotted at the Critics' Choice Awards in LA last week after appearing together at a Palm Springs film gala on January 2.

And at a pre-Golden Globes party Wright was seen carrying around Bennett's pet terrier, River, under his arm and introducing it to friends.

Let's hope that he doesn't make a habit of breaking hearts.

In 2007 he got engaged to Rosamund Pike — who played Jane Bennet in his 2005 adaption of Pride & Prejudice — but called off their wedding just two weeks before the big day.

Actress Lesley Manville, 61, enjoyed a long-running collaboration with director Mike Leigh having been cast in 11 of his films, including High Hopes, Secrets And Lies and Mr Turner.

She is pleased Hollywood seems more interested in women over 40 these days.

'Meryl Streep, Helen Mirren and Annette Bening are still playing sexual women who have lives,' says Manville, ex-wife of Gary Oldman.

'Rock on! But I haven't had any work done, so they might think my forehead moves a bit much.'

Despite being 27 years younger than her rock star husband Sir Rod Stewart, former model Penny Lancaster nevertheless feels the need to give her a face a youthful boost.

The 46-year-old blonde revealed her latest beauty trick when she posted a video online of herself sporting a Moisture Bomb Mask, which looks more like something from a horror film thanks to its clown-like white skin and oversized red lips. 'For super hydration,' she explains.

As women celebrate the news that female writers dominated 2017's literary bestseller list, Chocolat novelist Joanne Harris is decidedly less jubilant.

'There's absolutely no reason to specify that a writer is 'a woman writer' unless you feel that women writers belong in a different category to men,' she fumes. 'It's not about numbers: in fact, women writers slightly outnumber men — although men greatly outnumber women when it comes to being reviewed.' 

 

P. G. Wodehouse said it is never hard to tell the difference between a Scotsman with a grievance and a ray of sunshine.

And it seems Sherlock scriptwriter Steven Moffat agrees with him, despite being a born and bred Scot. 'If you like a laugh or being happy — that kind of thing — then don't be Scottish,' says Moffat.

'If you aren't any good at being enthusiastic about Scottish things, which I'm not, then being Scottish is a major problem for me.

'There is nothing fundamentally wrong with Scots, I'm just bad at it.

'All Scots are as lovely as all people who are full of loathing and shame for themselves are.'

Maybe Moffat has been rubbing shoulders with too many Sassenachs at the BBC.

 

What do Chris Martin's exes Annabelle Wallis and Gwyneth Paltrow have in common?

They share the same spiritual healing guide, Dr Habib Sadeghi — the man who came up with the term 'conscious uncoupling'.

In the same week that the Coldplay frontman went public with his romance with actress Dakota Johnson, Peaky Blinders star Annabelle reveals she has been reading Sadeghi's The Clarity Cleanse.

Published by Gwynnie's Goop press, it includes a foreword from the Oscar winner. 'It is with the utmost pleasure I recommend this book,' says Annabelle. 'Its common sense approach walks you closer to more power and progress in your life.'

Trudie and Sting (inset) have four kids: musician Coco, 27, actress Mickey, 33, Jake, 32, a model, and actor Giacomo, 22.

Despite being a pop pin-up, former Strictly star Frankie Bridge has hang-ups about her appearance. The Saturdays singer admits: 'I'm so self-critical, but I'm no different to most other women. Some days I don't have great skin — I get outbreaks of spots and feel self-conscious because it's hard to hide.' Frankie, 29, adds: 'I've recently started laser treatment to get to the root of it, and I also use products with salicylic acid, as I find that seems to help.'
