Bollywood wants its stars to look like Pitt, Kardashian: Celebrity hairstylist

Internationally-acclaimed hairstylist #PatrickCameron says Bollywood is taking notes from Hollywood to style their icons a la #KimKardashian and #BradPitt. However, he feels the Hindi film industry still maintains its distinct and special identity.

Cameron, who set foot in the industry in his early 20s in New Zealand, calls India a "very multi-cultural society within its own country" and finds the world of Hindi film industry "100 per cent outrageous". 

"I think Bollywood is 100 per cent outrageous and I think it's colourful and wonderful. I can't comment about celebrities and styles from Bollywood because I don't know any and I really can't comment about trends in Bollywood because I haven't seen enough. But what I will say is that, Bollywood very much takes its inspiration for its styling from what it sees around the world," Cameron told.

The actress also said she has been experimental with her looks since her growing up days.

"I started as a small town girl and it was not a conscious leap where I decided that 'Okay fine, I have to emerge as this style icon'. While growing up, I was quite experimental with my looks. It was not like that I didn't stand out back home in my little village where I grew up," Kangana told. 

"In fact, my fashion sense was quite outrageous. I remember wearing torn shorts and straw hat and going to market, which sort of scandalised everyone," she added. 

The 29-year-old is known for films like "Gangster - A Love Story", "Fashion", "Queen", "Tanu Weds Manu" and "Tanu Weds Manu Returns". She is now being lauded for her look in her forthcoming film "Rangoon" -- Vishal Bhardwaj's period drama set in the 1940s amidst the turmoil of India's Independence struggle. 

The actress said her father was not happy with her style while growing back.

Mel B, Geri Horner and Emma Bunton were planning to reunite this year to celebrate the band's 20th anniversary, reports mirror.co.uk.

"The girls are devastated. It is an extremely sad way for things to end," a source told The Sun newspaper.

"Victoria is proud of her Spice Girls history but this suggests she wants to cut all links with the group which transformed her life. She is resorting to aggressive legal letters and it is an extremely sad way for things to end after all they have been through together," the source added.

Last year, Beckham said she preferred if the three girls sang their own material.

"I do think they should sing their own material though, because what we did in the Spice Girls was so special. If they sang Spice Girls songs I think I might be a bit sad," Beckham said in a past interview.

Tapping into one's potential frightening: Viola Davis

Actress #Viola_Davis, who recently won the Golden Globe for her work in the film #Fences, says that tapping into your own potential is "very frightening".

Davis used to think if she puts herself down, it would make her look more "humble". But now she realises it is important to show how confident she is of herself and of her abilities, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"I think tapping into one's power and one's potential is a very frightening thing. And for women, it's a very new thing. It is. I always used to feel that self-deprecation was an answer to humility - that people would see me as a humble person the more I put myself down," Davis told The Observer magazine.

"And people do say that, 'Oh! I ran into so-and-so and they kept saying, 'Oh, my work in this really sucked,' and they were great! I just thought it was so refreshing that they said that! And I often think to myself, what if someone says, 'You know what, I'm confident, I'm really happy about the work I did. I really felt like I gave it my best and it came out great,' the same way men do. Why is that not seen as humble?," she added.

The "Black Swan" star is disappointed that there is a lack of movies in Hollywood that feature women in leading roles. As an audience member, she finds it is "really hard" to watch any films which don't feature many women, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"I don't have a problem with that point of view because it is a totally legitimate point of view - I'm glad to get insight into how straight white male minds work. It's just that we're not having other points of view," Portman told Culture magazine.

"As a female audience member, it's really hard for me to watch these movies where women don't exist. There are so many movies where it's literally 20 men and no female character, or there's a female character who's, like, the wife on the phone. I'm kind of not interested in watching it," she added.

* They have differences, but don't know how to fix it.

20-minute exercise is all you need to be fit

If you can spare 20 minutes everyday for moderate exercise, it will stimulate your immune system and make you less prone to diseases like #arthritis and #fibromyalgia, a new research has found.

20-minute-exercise-is-all-you-need-to-be-fit
Scientists at the University of California (UC) in San Diego found one session of moderate exercise can act as an anti-inflammatory.

"Our study found one session of about 20 minutes of moderate treadmill exercise resulted in a five per cent decrease in the number of stimulated immune cells producing TNF," said Suzi Hong from UC.

Scientists noted that during exercise, the brain and sympathetic nervous system are activated, enabling the body to carry out work while the hormones that are released into the blood stream trigger adrenergic receptors, which immune cells possess.
