Billie Eilish is set to release a photobook and audiobook about her life and career.

The 19-year-old megastar will document her childhood and her meteoric rise to fame as a teenager in the audiobook, which is narrated by herself, while she’ll share never-before-seen photographs from when she was growing up to touring the world in the self-made book.

A statement about the audiobook reads: “This is an audiobook like no other – providing a truly intimate window into her journey, in Billie’s own words.”

And of the tome, which will be released on May 11 in hardback and as an e-book, Billie – whose brother Finneas co-writes and produces her music – said: “I spent many hours over many months pouring through my family albums and archives, handpicking all of the photos in this book. I hope you love it as much as I do.”

Gretchen Young, the Vice President of publisher Grand Central Publishing, commented: “I am absolutely thrilled to be working on the first book by iconic singer and songwriter Billie Eilish.

“Her unique combination of sophisticated artistic vision and tenacious creative energy shines through on every page, and the vibrant visual nature of how she has chosen to share herself and her truth captures perfectly the unassailable authenticity for which she is so beloved by her ever-growing legions of fans.”

Meanwhile, February will see the premiere of the Grammy-winner’s Apple TV+ documentary ‘Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry’, which also gives an insight into the ‘No Time To Die’ hitmaker’s fascinating journey to superstardom.

As for new music, the ‘Therefore I Am’ singer recently teased fans that she’ll be beginning a “new era” this year.

She said on her Instagram story in December: “It will be the end of an era. I’m gonna give you a new era. I have announcements to make, I’ve got some s*** to put out.”

At the start of the clip, she joked that she won’t give her fans her new album if they keep poking fun at her green hair.

She quipped: “”F*** you guys. Stop making fun of me, my God! I’m f****** making you an album. I will not put it out if you keep making fun of my hair. Shut up!”

Billie released her critically-acclaimed debut studio album, ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’, in 2019.

Leslie Mann | Leslie Mann ‘intimidated’ by filming with Dame Judi Dench

leslie mann 2220176

Leslie Mann was “totally intimidated” by working with Dame Judi Dench on ‘Blithe Spirit’.

The 48-year-old actress plays Elvira Condomine in the comedy movie – which is based upon the 1941 play of the same name by Noel Coward – and admits she was daunted at the prospect of sharing scenes with the screen icon who plays mystic Madame Arcati.

Leslie exclusively told talkRADIO: “It was so much fun, the first day I worked with her was in bed and that was terrifying for me because she’s someone who I have so much respect for and there I was laying in bed with her.”

The ‘Knocked Up’ star also revealed that Judi helped her feel “at ease” as they filmed together.

Leslie recalled: “I think she knew I was nervous, I was probably sweating or something, and she went out of her way to make me feel comfortable and she set me at ease.

“It took me about an hour and a half to calm down. Because it’s too close up, she was right there!”

Leslie revealed that she relished wearing the costumes as filming a period movie was a new experience for her.

She said: “It was exciting to learn something new and a new way of doing things. All the costumes were so much fun, incredible to wear something other than what my characters would normally wear like jeans or t-shirts.

“It was so much fun to wear the beautiful feather capes and the gorgeous high waisted trousers and blouses and just the whole thing. It was like a dream, so much fun!”

Leslie also explained how she had to alter her typical approach when playing Elvira.

She explained: “The way I normally speak is very different to what I did with this character, Elvira, which is very fun.

“The way she dresses, her voice, the way she behaves, it was completely different from anything I’ve ever done. That was very fun to do, it was very free-ing.”

Patrick Dempsey will return for the ‘Enchanted’ sequel.

The 55-year-old actor has confirmed that he will reprise his role as Robert Philip in the follow-up to the 2007 Disney film, ‘Disenchanted’, which is set to be released on streaming service Disney+.

Speaking on ‘Good Morning America’ on Thursday (14.01.21), Patrick said: “I just got the script for the second movie. Then I’m starting to go through and get notes together.”

The ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ star also hinted that the sequel could begin filming in the spring.

Patrick said: “There’s talk that we’ll start shooting that in the spring, which is exciting.”

He was also full of praise for co-star Amy Adams who played his romantic interest – fairytale princess Giselle – in the original movie.

Dempsey remarked: “Amy Adams is so amazing in that film. It was a fun project to be a part of.

Adam Shankman will direct the new film while it has been suggested that James Marsden will return as Prince Edward, even though he previously expressed concern about the moving taking so long to come to fruition.

The 47-year-old star said: “They’ve been talking about making that movie for a while but I hope so, I hope we make it.

“We’ve been fooled before that it was gonna happen, it didn’t happen. We should do it before we get too long in the tooth.”

Meanwhile, Patrick explained that he is pleased to be recognised by people having played some notable roles in his career.

He explained: “Everyone’s really familiar with you. It’s like living in a small town because everybody knows you. You don’t necessarily know them, but they come up to you with such warmth and with great memory.”

Lauren Hutton | Lauren Hutton: Sex is my beauty secret

lauren hutton 2219834

Lauren Hutton has revealed sex is her beauty secret.

The 77-year-old model believes getting intimate with someone can be great for helping her maintain glowing skin as it is great exercise.

She said: “Making love is pretty good exercise, too! I think it’s important to be held and to hold someone, and to love someone if we can. A man can be hard to find, [because] I think there are way more good women than good men. I don’t know why, I guess that’s because of privilege. They’ve been the head sex for 6,000 years! That’ll make you feel like you’re in a really exclusive club.

“Sex is still absolutely a beauty secret for me – I hope I believe that forever. Although I’ve always talked [about sex], I never spoke about who my mates and partners are, that’s for sure. Nobody ever knew the man I lived with for 26 years – no one knew his name.”

However, the ‘I Feel Pretty’ star admitted the best secret to great skin is having “good photographers” that capture her best side.

She said: “I guess [the secret is] good photographers. It’s not retouching, they don’t retouch me.”

What’s more, Lauren has learned how to care for her skin over the years as her body changed from age and lifestyle habits and has since become “rabid” about moisturiser.

She explained to British Vogue: “My skin has gotten really thin because of my age – I’m 77 – and because I have spent probably half of my life near the equator. [The skin is] our first organ, you know, and the barrier to everything. So I’ve become rabid about moisturiser, and luckily I have a very good medical skincare cream contract, that helps a lot! I used to be more of a soap and water person because I was always trying to be as fast as possible to get to work. Now, I get the pleasure of trying all of Strivectin’s products. It’s really good.”
