Lily James Prepped for her Role of Cinderella by Reading Gandhi

Downton Abbey beauty, Lily James, will be playing the role of Ella or Cinderella, in the upcoming Disney film, which will be released in March.  James took the role very seriously, and was inspired by Ella’s pure and positive spirit despite her difficult circumstances.  She explains how she prepared for the role:

“I started taking horse riding lessons six weeks before shooting began, and I tried to start living healthily, doing a lot of yoga to try and get the kind of posture and grace and elegance that Ella would have had.

“I also did a lot of research on spirituality and read up on people like Gandhi who have been able to deal with life in a way that I knew I never could. But I wanted to make Ella seem as real as possible and didn’t want to just play that state.”

The film, directed by Kenneth Branagh, has an amazing cast that includes Helena Bonham Carter as the fairy godmother, Cate Blanchett as the wicked stepmother, and Agent Carter star, Hayley Attwell as Cinderella’s mother.  All the early reviews of the film are glowing, despite James’ scandalously tiny waist, and I can’t wait to take my daughter next month!

Zendaya is a Classy Girl

Primary Wave 9th Annual Pre-Grammy Party

Disney singer/actress, Zendaya Coleman, was rightfully outspoken after Giuliana Rancic, criticized her Oscar hair, which was styled in dreadlocks.  Rancic remarked on Fashion Police that her hair smelled like ‘pachouli oil’ but Zendaya said she wore her hair in that manner as a ‘symbol of strength and beauty’ and that Rancic’s comments were offensive and hurtful, and only reinforced society’s judgments on African American hair.

Rancic has since issued two apologies to the 18-year old Shake It Up star, the latest of which was given on-air.

Like a true lady, Zendaya has decided to take the high road and accept Giuliana’s apology, and went further to encourage her fans to forgive as well.

“Giuliana, I appreciate your apology and I’m glad it was a learning experience for you and for the network,” she wrote. “I hope that others negatively affected by her words can also find it in their hearts to accept her apology as well. From a quote we all know by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., ‘Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.’ Let’s be that light and spread that love.”

The beautiful starlet seems to have a good head on her shoulders.  She’s not afraid to stand up for herself and speak her mind, but seems to take the time to formulate a thoughtful response that encourages discussion and tolerance rather than just a rash rant.
