Emma Corrin has said she was “incredibly moved” by Prince Harry’s assessment of The Crown. The Duke Of Sussex was asked how he felt about the Netflix drama that depicts his family during an appearance on James Corden’s The Late Late Show last week. “They don’t pretend to be news. It’s fictional,” Harry said. “But it’s loosely based on the truth. Of course, it’s not strictly accurate, of course not, but loosely it gives you a rough idea about what that lifestyle, the pressures of putting duty and service above family and everything else, what can come from that.“I’m way more comfortable with The Crown than I am seeing the stories written about my family or my wife or myself. Because… that [The Crown] is obviously fiction, take it how you will. But this is being reported on as fact because you’re supposedly news. I have a real issue with that.”Emma – who plays Harry’s late mother Princess Diana in The Crown – was asked how she felt knowing the Duke had seen her portrayal, following her win at Sunday night’s Golden Globes. She told the virtual press room: “It’s difficult because with The Crown, Peter [Morgan]’s version of The Crown, it is so fictional, and it feels so removed from the actual Royal family. So, on one level, I feel like it is so distant and feels so separate but on the other hand, obviously, the characters are based on real people and I would say there’s a responsibility to acknowledge them in some way.“Certainly the way that he spoke about it, and the fact that he’s watched it and the fact that obviously I played his mother, and that would be such a sensitive thing. “I was very moved by the fact that he acknowledged it. I’m incredibly grateful to him and incredibly moved by what he said.”Gillian Anderson, who picked up Best Supporting Actress in a TV Series for her role as former UK prime minister Margaret Thatcher in The Crown, also said: “Harry is fairly well qualified to judge what is fact or fiction. He’s understood what [creator] Peter [Morgan] is trying to do on The Crown.”Harry’s verdict of The Crown stood in contrast to that of his uncle, Earl Spencer, who criticised the show’s artistic licence.Culture secretary Oliver Dowden is among those who think Netflix should be made to add a disclaimer to The Crown – an idea both Emma Corrin and co-star Josh O’Connor have spoken out against previously.

We went from zero to 60 in the first two months.”READ MORE:How To Watch Meghan Markle And Prince Harry's Oprah Winfrey Interview In The UKPrince Harry Reveals Exactly What He Thinks Of The CrownPrince Harry Rapping The Fresh Prince Theme Tune Is The Only Thing You Need To See Today
The Parker Solar Probe, designed for detailed study of the Sun, has another advantage — it is able to examine planets as it passes their orbits. As it refines its orbit around our Sun, Parker will pass Venus a total of seven times over its seven-year mission. The Parker probe uses the gravitational pull of planets to bend its path through the Solar System. Recorded on July 11, 2020, a fascinating new image of Venus was taken during the third of Parker’s seven planned encounters with the Sun.

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey returned to present the Golden Globes for the first time in six years on Sunday night, and did a pretty great job of hosting on a night like none the long-running awards show has ever seen before.The duo were confirmed to be hosting this year’s Golden Globes way back in January 2020, when they could never have predicted they’d end up presenting it on different sides of the US due to the pandemic.Yes, Amy and Tina shared hosting duties via video-link, with the former in California and the latter in New York, so celebrity guest presenters wouldn’t have to fly across the country during the pandemic.Opening up the show with an eight-minute comedy routine, the pair delivered some brilliant one-liners ribbing the nominees and the all-round ridiculousness of the situation.Here are a few of our favourites from their Golden Globes opener...Summing up the dystopia that was 2020Amy Poehler: “I’m Amy Poheler here at the Beverly Hilton, district 7, New Angeles. And this is the 78th annual Hunger Games.”Seizing the opportunity for a great visual gagAmy Poehler: Tina and I are hosting from two different cities tonight but the technology is so great you are never going to be able to tell the difference. It’s going to be smooth sailing.Tina Fey: You won’t even notice.Poking fun at how many of the films nominated for Golden Globes in 2021 passed many of us byTina Fey: What an exciting night! All the big blockbuster movies that came out of this year are nominated. Parts Of A Lady! Irish Goodnight! Mauricio’s Delve! Amy Poehler: Day Planner! Grunk! Ali G Goes To Chicago!Tina Fey: And we’ll be honouring all the TV you binge-watched this year. The American Office… old episodes of Columbo… very one-sided news programmes.Amy Poehler: And of course the cranberry juice skateboard guy is going to skateboard to all the nominated songs tonight. How exciting!Praising the first responders in the audience (sort of) Tina Fey: Normally this room is full of celebrities but tonight our audience is made up of smoking hot first responders and essential workers. We are so grateful for the work that you do and that you’re here… so that the celebrities can stay safely at home.Amy Poehler: This front table right here usually houses the biggest stars in the world… Brad Pitt’s always waving at me like ‘Amy! Amy!’ and I’m like, ‘dude, I’m working, not now’... Quentin Tarantino crawling under the tables just touching people’s feet… the point is, do whatever you want. Because they do.And of course, they couldn’t not mention the recent controversy that followed reports that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association – who decide the winners of the Golden Globes – doesn’t have a single Black memberTina Fey: The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is made up of around 90 international no-Black journalists who attend movie junkets each year in search of a better life. We say around 90 because a couple of them might be ghosts, and it’s rumoured that the German member is just a sausage that somebody drew a little face on.Tina Fey: Soul is a beautiful Pixar animated movie where a middle-aged Black man’s soul accidentally gets knocked out of his body and into a cat. The HFPA really responded to this movie, because they do have five cat members.Amy Poehler: Everybody is understandably upset at the HFPA and their choices. Look, a lot of flashy garbage got nominated, but that happens. That’s their thing. But a number of Black actors and Black-led projects were overlooked… Tina Fey: … the point is, even with stupid things, inclusivity is important, and there are no Black members of the HFPA. I realise maybe you guys didn’t get the memo, because your workplace is the back booth of a French McDonald’s. But you gotta change that. So here’s to changing it.Getting into the key differences between the TV and film categories Tina Fey: I think the rule is, if their fake teeth look real, that’s a movie. And if their real teeth look fake, that’s TV.Amy Poehler: If the British actors are playing British people, it’s TV. If they’re playing Americans, it’s a movie. And then they got onto some of the nominees like The Prom... Tina Fey: The Queen’s Gambit is whatever James Corden was up to in The Prom, I guess. The Prom came out at the perfect time, because this year so many teenagers didn’t get to go to their proms. So they could watch James Corden and Meryl Streep go to it instead. That’s still fun, right, guys?...The Undoing…Amy Poehler: The Undoing was a sexy and dramatic mystery where Nicole Kidman’s coat is suspected of murdering her wig....Music… Tina Fey: Sia’s controversial film Music is nominated for Best International Flop-er-oonie. I don’t want to get into it, guys, but it’s real problematic. And Twitter is saying it’s the most offensive casting since Kate Hudson was the Weight Watchers spokesperson....and, of course, Emily In Paris Tina Fey: Emily In Paris is nominated for Best TV Series – Musical Or Comedy, and I for one can’t wait to find out which it is. French Exit is what I did after watching the first episode of Emily In Paris.And finally, introducing the first guest presenter of the night Tina Fey: Could this whole night have been an email? Yes! But then we wouldn’t get the chance to see our beautiful first presenter. Like a child’s skeleton pyjamas, she simply glows… Ms Laura Dern.READ MORE:British Stars Lead The Way As This Year's Golden Globes Winners Are RevealedSacha Baron Cohen's Golden Globes Acceptance Speech Was Every Bit As Cutting As You'd ExpectOlivia Colman's Reaction To Emma Corrin's Golden Globes Win Was Adorable And So Olivia Colman

Sue Perkins has claimed Great British Bake Off contestant Iain Watters “really lost it” during the show’s infamous Bin Gate debacle. In one of the hit baking competition’s most infamous moments ever, Iain dramatically binned his Baked Alaska after it failed to set during the 2014 series. Reflecting on the incident, which made front page news when it aired, former Bake Off host Sue revealed there was also a lot going on behind the scenes that didn’t make it into the show. Appearing on Ed Gamble and James Acaster’s Off Menu podcast, Sue said: “I had to talk to him. Yeah, he was effing and jeffing. There’s a lot of effing and jeffing which was the first time we’ve had that on camera in Bake Off.“Obviously there’s a lot of it going on backstage, mainly because I’m just foul of mouth but normally it’s very mellow, as you know. He really lost it.“And in that moment I was with him, it was life and death, but then slowly this creeping contextualisation of just… I’m with a man in a tent, whose ice cream has melted. This is… Meanwhile in Syria…” Sue continued: “I had to take him out, and we had to have a little chat, be nice guy, and just say, ‘Come on, let’s bring some perspective to this. Maybe, maybe not, somebody opened the fridge door, it might have affected the temperature.’“But I have to say the aplomb with which he just got the foot on the pedal of the pedal bin. It was like something out of Thelma and Louise, when you see that close up of it going up and down.”The ramifications of #BinGate were huge, mainly for Iain’s fellow contestant, Diana Beard, who found herself on the receiving end of a torrent of abuse, when she was accused of sabotaging Iain’s Baked Alaska.However a statement from the BBC insisted she was not to blame for the ice cream melting. “Diana removing Iain’s ice cream from the freezer for less than a minute was in no way responsible for Iain’s departure,” the broadcaster said at the time. Sue co-hosted the first seven series of The Great British Bake Off with comedy partner Mel Giedroyc prior to the show’s move from the BBC to Channel 4 in 2017. It is now hosted by Matt Lucas and Noel Fielding, while long-serving judge Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith cast an eye over the contestant’s bakes. The latest episode of the Off Menu podcast is available to stream now.

A federal judge on Friday gave final approval to a $650 million Facebook class action privacy settlement and ordered the 1.6 million members of the class in Illinois who submitted claims to be paid “as expeditiously as possible.”
Chicago attorney Jay Edelson sued Facebook in Cook County Circuit Court back in 2015, alleging that the platform’s use of facial recognition tagging was not allowed under the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act. The lawsuit claimed that Facebook’s Tag Suggestions tool, which scanned faces in users’ photos and offered suggestions about who the person might be, stored biometric data without users’ consent in violation of the Illinois law.
The case became a class action lawsuit in 2018. In 2019, Facebook m...

What’s better than an ultra-high-tech, Mission: Impossible-style mask? The deepfake technology this TikToker is using to impersonate Tom Cruise, apparently (via The Daily Beast). The deeptomcruise account appears to feature someone who’s pretending to be the famous actor, and the impression isn’t just jaw-dropping because of how well the person replicates Cruise’s famous laugh.

How can you tell it’s not actually Tom Cruise using some sort of strange Twitter name? First, his voice is close, but it’s not quite there, especially since the lip-syncing is a tiny bit off at some points.
