The actress Cynthia Nixon officially jumped into the race for governor of New York on Monday, setting off what promises to be a tumultuous six months as she challenges Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo in this year’s Democratic primary. Ms. Nixon, 51, has never before run for elected office and has chosen a huge undertaking for her first bid: seeking to unseat a two-term incumbent (and son of a three-term governor) who is sitting atop more than $30 million in campaign cash.
Sophie Turner has insisted she's not angry that Kit Harington is paid more than her on Game of Thrones because he "had a bigger storyline". The 23-year-old actress plays Sansa Stark in the hit U.S. TV show, and is believed to earn around $206,000 (£158,000) per week for her role on the programme. Meanwhile, Kit, who stars as her half-brother Jon Snow in the series, is understood to take home approximately three times more than his co-star - with weekly earnings of around $700,000 (£537,000). However, while the gender pay gap is a hot topic at the minute, Sophie told Harper's Bazaar magazine that she's not annoyed at the difference in her and Kit's wages - because he has more work to do on the programme. "Kit got more money than me, but he had a bigger storyline," she said. "And for the last series, he had something crazy like 70 night shoots, and I didn't have that many. I was like, 'You know what... you keep that money.'" Elsewhere in the interview, Sophie opened up about her relationship with Jonas Brothers star fiance Joe Jonas. The pair are currently in the midst of planning their wedding, and the screen star revealed that they actually met when Joe direct messaged her on Instagram. "We had a lot of mutual friends and they'd been trying to introduce us for a long time," she smiled. "We were following each other on Instagram and he direct-messaged me one fine day, out of the blue." Gushing about her husband-to-be, Sophie added: "He's lovely. He's just the funniest. You wouldn't expect he's about to turn 30 this year. He's the most fun, energetic, positive person I've ever seen. I'm pessimistic, so we balance each other out."
Liam Payne was spotted leaving rumored girlfriend Naomi Campbell's apartment in New York on Friday (15Feb19). The couple has been reportedly dating since December (18), and the Strip That Down hitmaker jetted out to meet up with Naomi, 48, shortly after they attended the BAFTA afterparty she hosted for Vogue at at Annabel’s in Mayfair, London. It was the first time the pair had been seen together publicly, though they avoided being photographed and left the exclusive London members' club minutes apart. The 25-year-old was papped sneaking out of the side door of Naomi’s Manhattan apartment building the day after Valentine’s Day, and carried a suitcase as he climbed into a waiting car, according to British newspaper The Sun. A source told the outlet that Liam has been wooing the supermodel with secret dinner dates and sexy private messages on Instagram. "Liam thinks she's amazing and beautiful, and has said their time together has been mind-blowing," they added. "He can't believe his luck." The unlikely couple first sparked speculation of a budding relationship when they exchanged a series of flirty messages on Instagram. Commenting on a steamy black-and-white photo of Liam, Naomi wrote: "Beautiful Soul." Liam quickly replied, "Takes one to know one," with a kissy face emoji. And on a photo Naomi shared of her showing off an incredible afro hairstyle as she prepared for the Louis Vuitton show during Paris Couture Week, the Strip That Down singer wrote: "Perfection in a person... don't give me those eyes." Naomi has reportedly previously dated Quincy Jones, Prince Albert of Monaco, Mike Tyson and Usher, and was most recently linked to grime star Skepta. Meanwhile, Liam split from Cheryl, the mother of his 22-month-old son Bear, in July (18) after more than two years together.
