The actress told Entertainment Weekly that if were up to her, she would go back and play Clementine from her 2004 film “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” in which she starred alongside Jim Carrey.

Winslet said:

“Actually, she’s one I’d love to play again, because it was just so much fun. And the possibilities for the hair colors were just endless. Wouldn’t you like to see Clementine as a 42-year-old woman? I’d love to know what happened to her. I love the idea that she just let herself get really fat and just totally let go of her hangups about her body and just indulged in everything that made her feel happy. And more hair colors and more crazy clothes! I just think that could’ve been fun.”

Winslet also revealed that she hardly ever goes back and watches any of her performances after doing a movie. She said a few years ago, she sat down with her daughter and director Peter Jackson to watch “Heavenly Creatures,” Winslet’s first movie.

“Peter kept turning to me and saying, ‘You know, this is a bloody good film! This is really a bloody good film we made! I mean, bloody hell! When you think about some of the (expletive) that’s out there, Christ! This is a really good film!’” Winslet said.

“I was like, ‘Calm down, Pete, calm down!’ And I think he had a moment of allowing himself, beyond ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and ‘The Hobbit,’ to just be very, very proud of a film he’d made, this tiny film that we’d made 25 years ago,” she added.

Fifth Harmony’s Normani Kordei took a tumble during the group’s recent Brazil concert, but she handled it like a professional.

In video from the concert, the singer belts out the lyrics to “Make You Mad” along with the rest of the band when she takes the spill. Trying to turn to walk to the front of the stage, Kordei lost her footing and did a half-split in high heels.

Without missing a beat, the performer fiercely flips her hair up and strikes a pose as if her fall was part of the plan all along. Noticing her mistake but loving her recovery, the audience went wild.

The nearly mortifying moment wasn’t the only time the singer has improvised when a routine took a turn for the worse. Back in August, when her In-Ear pack ripped off, Kordei performed another unplanned split.

“I couldn’t hear anything the whole entire performance, which is crazy,” she said afterward. “I was freaking out so I was like, ‘You know what? The least that I could was slay and do a split, girl!’”

Antin opened up to The Blast and said the allegations were “disgusting, ridiculous lies” that one-time member Kaya Jones reported on Twitter. Antin also said Jones was “clearly looking for her 15 minutes” and was never an official member of the group. She was simply there on a trial basis, according to Antin.

On Friday, Jones tweeted that she actually left the group because it was a “prostitution ring.”

“My truth. I wasn’t in a girl group. I was in a prostitution ring. Oh & we happened to sing & be famous. While everyone who owned us made the $,” Jones wrote to fans on Twitter. “How bad was it? People ask — bad enough that I walked away from my dreams, my bandmates & a 13 million dollar record deal. We knew we were going to be #1.”

Jones also called out the group’s “den mother” but did not name names. Antin founded the group, which started as a burlesque troupe in 1995, according to E! News.

A representative for the Pussycat Dolls has not yet responded to the allegations.

Larry Flynt offering up to $10M for information leading to Trump's impeachment

Hustler founder Larry Flynt is looking for information that will lead to President Donald Trump's impeachment – and he's willing to pay for it.

According to The Associated Press, the 74-year-old pornography publisher placed a full-page ad in Sunday's Washington Post to "announce a cash offer of up to $10 million" for the information. See the ad here.

"I do not expect any of Trump's billionaire cronies to rat him out, but I am confident that there are many people in the know for whom $10 million is a lot of money," the ad reads. "And just because you pay for information doesn't mean it's not good. Make no mistake, I fully intend to pay this entire sum."

The ad continues: "Sure, I could use that $10 million to buy luxuries or further my businesses, but what good would that do me in a world devastated by the most powerful moron in history? I feel it is my patriotic duty, and the duty of all Americans, to dump Trump before it's too late."

This isn't the first time Flynt has offered money to derail Trump. The AP reported that Flynt offered $1 million during the 2016 presidential campaign for video or audio of Trump "behaving in an illegal or sexually demeaning manner."

In the Times article, “Being a Feminist in Harvey Weinstein’s World,” Bialik opened up about her fashion choices and behavior around men, writing, “I am entirely aware that these types of choices might feel oppressive to many young feminists. Women should be able to wear whatever they want. They should be able to flirt however they want with whomever they want. Why are we the ones who have to police our behavior?”

She continued, “In a perfect world, women should be free to act however they want. But our world isn’t perfect. Nothing — absolutely nothing — excuses men for assaulting or abusing women. But we can’t be naïve about the culture we live in.”

“I’m being told my N.Y. Times piece resonated with so many and I am beyond grateful for all of the feedback. I also see a bunch of people have taken my words out of the context of the Hollywood machine and twisted them to imply that God forbid I would blame a woman for her assault based on her clothing or behavior,” she wrote on Twitter and Facebook. “Anyone who knows me and my feminism knows that’s absurd and not at all what this piece was about. It’s so sad how vicious people are being when I basically live to make things better for women. I am doing a Facebook live with the N.Y. Times Monday morning. Let’s discuss it then.”
