DAMIAN LEWIS APOLOGIZES FOR ‘FRUITY’ COMMENT ABOUT IAN MCKELLEN: Homeland star Damian Lewis has issued a statement apologizing for making negative comments to UK’s The Guardian that were believed to be about Sir Ian McKellen. Damian said, “I am hugely embarrassed that comments of mine have been linked in a negative way to Sir Ian McKellen. I have always been, and continue to be, an enormous fan and admirer of Sir Ian’s. He’s one of the greats and one of the reasons I became an actor. My comment in the Guardian was a soundbite I’ve been giving since 1999 — it was a generic analogy that was never intended to demean or describe anyone else’s career. I have contacted Sir Ian McKellen and have given him my sincerest apologies.” McKellen reacted to the apology on Twitter on Thursday (December 12th) by writing, “There was no need for @Lewis_Damian to apologize to me, as I thought his comments were fair. But he’s a gentleman. Now I hope @lewis_damian enjoys @TheHobbitMovie DOS as much as I enjoy @SHO_Homeland.”

I wish I could, I really wish I could” She went on to admit that if she were to be on one of the Housewife shows it would definitely be New Jersey.

Ashley posted the photo to Instagram and wrote, “Saw this floating around….hope it’s not the poster. Our faces in this were from 4 years ago…..and we all look ridiculous. Way too much photo shop. We all have flaws. No one looks like this. It’s not attractive.” The 23-year-old then retweeted messages from fans who also felt the picture looked way too overdone. She later added, “Remember, you are ALL beautiful. Please don’t ever try and look like the people you see in magazines or posters because it’s fake. It only causes an unhealthy mind about how you see yourself. You are perfect the way you are.”
