Thandie Newton says there are no rules to parenting - Realbollywood.com News
Washington, Dec 19: Thandie Newton has said that she doesn't believe in parenting rules and would rather lead by example.

The busy actress has two daughters Ripley, 11, and Nico, seven, with her director spouse Ol Parker and she admits that she tries not to follow the conventional rules of being a mother.

"I try to be a mirror instead of impressing myself on them all the time. I take responsibility for my actions, explain to them, 'The reason I'm rushing is' or 'It's not you fault I'm upset," Contactmusic quoted her as telling Style magazine.

But if I come across even remotely annoyed with them, I do get, 'All right.

The busy actress has two daughters Ripley, 11, and Nico, seven, with her director spouse Ol Parker and Thandie - who admits when her husband is away working she allows the girls to stay up late so they can all spend time together - tries not to follow the conventional rules of being a mother.

She explained: "I try to be a mirror instead of impressing myself on them all the time. I take responsibility for my actions, explain to them, 'The reason I'm rushing is' or 'It's not you fault I'm upset.'

"But if I come across even remotely annoyed with them, I do get, 'All right mummy' and I think, 'Jesus, you have no idea what real rage is.'"

While Thandie is known for championing British designers, she revealed her daughters love dressing up, something she had no interest in when she was younger.

"Cinco" Reasons Anyone Should Love Tim and Eric

With Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie on the way, I feel there will now be three camps in the Tim and Eric debate. In the ongoing Tim and Eric debate you have two camps, "Pep-pep's" and misguided Chippies who don't like Tim and Eric. This articles for the Pep-pep's to give to their misguided Chippies to potentially (although not likely as they are closed minded) sway their opinion on perhaps one of the greatest comedy duo's of our time. So let's start with...............(cough).........................................

Cinco!

Cinco products celebrate all that is great about those cheesy nostalgic late night commercials on the television. The offers are too good to be true, the products are often nonsensical and have no practical use, and buying them only makes you a worse individual....so yeah it's pretty much like the real commercials. By the way that's an Apple III in the video there.

Shannon Elizabeth On Board for American Reunion

The A Novel Romance starlet has signed on to the long overdue American Pie sequel, returning to the franchise that made her an international sex symbol. Shannon Elizabeth will return to her role as "Nadia" the Czech foreign exchange student with a penchant for revealing much skin. Filming is scheduled to start soon on the highly anticipated sequel. The original trilogy -- that ended in 2003 with American Wedding -- is a franchise which spawned the resurgence of teen sex comedies. Although many original cast members were absent from even the third film, Producer Craig Perry recently told the press that he wanted to "do it right" and get the entire original cast back in the saddle for the next installment, but acknowledged the amount of scheduling/planning conflicts inherent in such a...

Gethard in for Heder on Comedy Central's 'Big Lake'

  • Aol TV.
Two weeks ago, Jon Heder ('Napoleon Dynamite') dropped out of a sitcom for Comedy Central produced by Gary Sanchez Productions. As it turns out, the company, led by Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy, had their replacement already on hand.

Sanchez has tapped Chris Gethard, who has a small role in their summer action comedy 'The Other Guys,' to replace Heder in the sitcom, which is now tentatively called 'Big Lake.'

Gethard is far from Heder's level of fame (his other project this summer is 'It's Not You' with Shannon Elizabeth and Steve Guttenberg), but Gethard comes with an impressive pedigree outside of television. He's a staple at the Upright Citizen's Brigade in New York (the New York Times recently featured one of his more inventive shows).

Guttenberg's New Role Is Close To Home

  • WENN
Guttenberg's New Role Is Close To Home
Steve Guttenberg will poke fun at his status as an '80s icon in his latest movie role.

The actor was king of the box office during the 1980s, starring in four major movie franchises; Three Men and a Baby, Police Academy, Cocoon and Short Circuit.

He has since been forced to reinvent himself to stay in the spotlight, appearing on reality show Dancing with the Stars and even embarking on a new career as a stand-up comedian.

In his latest role, in romantic drama It's Not You, the 51 year old plays an ad executive who is forced to reinvent himself after struggling to live up to the success he enjoyed earlier in his career.

And Guttenberg admits there are parallels between his life and that of his character Nate Shepherd.

The actor tells WENN, "It's about a man who reinvents himself. Everyone has to reinvent themselves to stay in the game, whether you're Madonna or Paul McCartney."

Morris S. Levy, the movie's producer, adds, "It sort of mirrors Steve Guttenberg's life as an actor. The writer/director (Allie Dvorin) actually changed a lot of the material, to make (Nate Shepherd) more of the '80s character that Steve was.

"In the opening scene we find out that he came up with one of the most famous catchphrases of the 80s, but he gets fired in the (film) because he's behind the times.

Levy is hoping It's Not You is a big box office hit and kickstarts Guttenberg's career - in the same way The Wrestler turned Mickey Rourke from a has-been into a Golden Globe winner.

Levy says, "People forget, Steve was in six films in the 1980s that made over $100 million. When ticket prices were $2.50. That's $200 million, $300 million films now.

"How many actors have done that? And he's still young.

"With Mickey Rourke coming back in the Wrestler.... And I don't think Mickey Rourke was a beloved character. So we have a shot at that."

Guttenberg Flashes Movie Co-stars

Guttenberg Flashes Movie Co-stars
Steve Guttenberg is giving cast and crew an eyeful on the set of his new movie - he keeps stripping naked.

The 51 year old is proud of his buff physique and has been spotted jogging topless near his New York City home.

But comedian Jeffrey Ross, Guttenberg's co-star in new romance drama It's Not You, reveals the 80s icon isn't afraid of peeling off on the film's Manhattan set when he needs to change costumes.

Speaking on his first day on set, Ross tells WENN, "He's got a hot bod and he knows it. He takes his clothes off. There are no trailers, because it's low budget - but he doesn't even go behind a screen. I've seen him naked more times than I've seen my girlfriend naked.”

Elizabeth Goes Blonde For The First Time

  • WENN
Elizabeth Goes Blonde For The First Time
Actress Shannon Elizabeth has abandoned her trademark brunette locks for a new movie role.

The American Pie star debuts her new blonde look in It's Not You, in which she stars alongside Steve Guttenberg and comedian Jeffrey Ross.

And the sexy star is thrilled she got the chance to try a different style - revealing she has always been banned from touching her famous hair.

She tells WENN, "This is the first time I've been able to change my look. (Movie bosses) usually can't see past me as a brunette."

The actress hopes the new role - in which she romances both Guttenberg and Ross' characters - will show casting directors she's more versatile as an actress, even if it means drastically altering her appearance.

Elizabeth adds, "I'd definitely like to try different looks. It totally depends on the role, of course. But my favourite actor is Gary Oldman. He looks so different in all his movies, you can't always tell it's him."
