We won’t see Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody until 2018, but boy are we ready. Entertainment Weekly shared an exclusive first image of the Mr. Robot star as Queen’s frontman, and it’s nothing short of glorious.

The photo was released Tuesday, on Mercury’s birthday.

Behold the biceps, the pelvic gyration, the jaw that could cut diamonds. But even beyond that — behold the physicality of Mercury in the 1970s, as a dancer, singer, and all-around performer.

Bohemian Rhapsody is directed by Bryan Singer, who says the film is less of a biopic than an examination of a specific moment in music history (Queen’s performances from 1970 through 1985). The film is expected to premiere Dec. 25, 2018.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson FINALLY Explains What Caused His Fast & Furious Feud With Vin Diesel!

Vin Diesel and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson are just two wheels spinning in opposite directions — which is apparently what led to lots of friction between the two on The Fate of the Furious set in 2016.

At least that’s what The Rock says was the cause of his now-famous beef with his Fast 8 costar in a new interview with Rolling Stone.

The feud first came to light in August 2016, when the Rampage star wrote an Instagram caption thanking his hard-working crew and female costars, but slammed an unnamed “candy ass” male costar.

After a few more passive aggressive social media posts, it became clear the candy ass in question was Diesel. But we still never found out what when down between the two… until now!

Johnson confirms he and Diesel “were not in any scenes together” in the new interview, revealing that their trouble basically came down to a disagreement about professionalism. He told the publication:

“Vin and I had a few discussions, including an important face-to-face in my trailer. And what I came to realize is that we have a fundamental difference in philosophies on how we approach movie-making and collaborating.”

Makes sense, given that Johnson’s original post blasted male costars that don’t “conduct themselves as stand up men and true professionals” on set.

While the two still may not completely see eye to eye, the conversations helped the WWE star gain a better understanding of Diesel:

“It took me some time, but I’m grateful for that clarity. Whether we work together again or not. But I wish him all the best, and I harbor no ill will there, just because of the clarity we have.”

Wait, so the drama is completely over? Not so fast…

“Actually, you can erase that last part about ‘no ill will.’ We’ll just keep it with the clarity.”

There’s our alpha male!

The Rock is “not quite sure” whether he will return for the ninth Fast & Furious installment, but confirms he’s hard at work making the upcoming Hobbs and Shaw spinoff, in which he will star alongside Jason Statham, “as good as it can be.”

No one tell Tyrese Gibson, or we’re gonna have more Fast & Furious drama than we can keep up with.

Colin Firths Wife Reveals She Had An Affair With Couples Alleged Stalker

Actor Colin Firth’s wife, Livia Giuggioli, an Italian movie producer and director, has confirmed she had an affair with the man she’s now accusing of stalking her and her husband.

The Firths, who’ve been together for over two decades, apparently separated for a short while a couple years back. During this time, Giuggioli began an affair with lifelongfriend and journalist Marco Brancaccia, who has launched a “frightening campaign of harassment” against the pair, who have since gotten back together, the couple’s representative said Friday.

“For obvious reasons, the Firths have never had any desire to make this matter public. A few years ago Colin and Livia privately made the decision to separate. During that time Livia briefly became involved with former friend Mr. Brancaccia. The Firths have since reunited,” a representative for the actor told HuffPost Friday in a statement. 

The statement comes after reports about the allegations were made public due to leaked court documents, which possibly stem from the indictment against Brancaccia made by Italian prosecutors after the Firths lodged a harassment complaint.

“Subsequently, Mr. Brancaccia carried out a frightening campaign of harassment over several months, much of which is documented,” the statement continued. “As a consequence of his stalking, threats and refusal to desist, the legal complaint was lodged with the Italian authorities.”

The couple is based in London, but the Firths also have a home in Umbria, Italy.

Brancaccia, who works for the ANSA news agency, is now the subject of an Italian police investigation. He has denied the allegations and accused Giuggioli of fabricating the stalking claims to cover up the affair, which he says occurred between 2015 and 2016

“We were romantically involved, she wanted to leave Colin for me,” he said in a statement to The Times published Friday morning. He added that the couple’s marriage had “been over for years.”

Brancaccia went on to claim that he only sent two WhatsApp messages to Giuggioli, as well as an email detailing the affair to Firth, who he describes as “understanding.”

“In a year she sent me hundreds of messages of love, photos and videos, even a diary,” he added.

Firth and Giuggioli share two children together Luca, 16 and Matteo, 15. The Oscar-winner also has another son, from a previous marriage to actress Meg Tilly.
