Kinsey Wolanski 'sent flirty messages by Liverpool stars' after Champions League final streak – but didn't even know who players were behind lame attempts

KINSEY WOLANSKI was flooded with flirty messages from Liverpool stars after streaking during the Champions League final earlier this month, she has claimed.

The 22-year-old stunner charged across the Wanda Metropolitano turf in a skimpy black swimsuit during the Reds' 2-0 win over Tottenham.

Kinsey Wolanski has claimed Liverpool stars sent her flirty messages after her streak


After being arrested and spending five hours locked in a Spanish jail cell the American model now reckons she can "retire at 30".

But she has now claimed there were no complaints from Liverpool's PLAYERS following her stunt.

Wolanski claimed: “I’m not revealing any names, but a couple of the Liverpool players did send me private flirty messages after I streaked the game.

"One sent some heart emojis and the other one a message saying, ‘I saw you at the game’.

“I honestly didn’t even know who they were until I clicked on their profiles. I didn’t respond though as I already have a boyfriend."

Kinsey, from Los Angeles, also revealed the prank – filmed by fan Peter Beaumont – was the best move of her career.

By the time I’m 30 I plan on making enough money to retire, and streaking at the Champions League will only help me achieve that.

She added: “By the time I’m 30 I plan on making enough money to retire, and streaking at the Champions League will only help me achieve that.

“I plan to do a lot more streaking to raise my profile.

“After I was released from jail I had gone from 300,000 followers on Instagram to over two million. You can’t buy that kind of publicity.

“Suddenly I was famous all over the world and had job offers flooding in. I don’t think I did anyone any harm, it was just a bit of fun.

“The fans loved it, the players seemed to love it and even the police at the station were asking for my photograph by the time I got out.

"The response has been unbelievable, I couldn’t be happier. It was the biggest thrill of my life.”

"HARMLESS FUN"

Kinsey, who has modelled for Sports Illustrated and Maxim, says her family have found the funny side in her prank too, despite her dad, Daniel Wolanski, being a sheriff with the LA Police Department.

She laughed: “Of course I didn’t tell them what I was going to do, but were they surprised? No, they know exactly what I’m like.

“Dad was just relieved I was actually wearing a swimsuit when I did it — and wasn’t fully naked.”

The mastermind behind Kinsey’s prank was her boyfriend Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, a Russian-American YouTuber, who runs a porn website.

And Kinsey believes Zdorovetskiy's pranks are all just a bit of harmless fun.

She said: “Some people might question how Vitaly makes his money, but he is brilliant at what he does.

"His pranks are just meant as a bit of fun and he really is just the sweetest guy who I one day hope to marry. He couldn’t be prouder of me.”

The 27-year-old has a long record of performing pranks himself.

In 2014 he was banned from attending football games after he invaded the pitch at the World Cup final between Germany and Argentina.

He has also been arrested for running on the court during the NBA finals in 2016, charged with trespassing after streaking at a World Series baseball game in 2017 and faced other arrests for a bomb hoax, disorderly conduct and a prank which saw him pretending to rob an ATM machine in 2014.

Gucci sales assistant steals £1,580 to fund father’s deportation fight

Gucci sales assistant, 27, weeps in court as she is spared jail despite stealing £1,580 from the fashion giant’s till at Selfridges to fund her father’s deportation fight

  • Shaneka Badi, 27, took £1,580 from the till at Gucci concession stall at Selfridges
  • She stole cash after Home Office threatened to send her father back to Jamaica
  • Badi, of Dalston, East London, borrowed her colleagues’ pass to open the till 
  • She admitted theft and was ordered to repay money at rate of £100 a month

Shaneka Badi, 27,is pictured leaving Westminster Magistrates’ Court last Friday

A Gucci sales assistant wept as she was spared prison for stealing money from the luxury goods firm to fund her father’s legal battle against deportation.

Shaneka Badi, 27, of Dalston, East London, took £1,580 from the till at the Gucci concession stall at Selfridges on Oxford Street in February last year.

Badi, who had also worked for Christian Louboutin and Prada, took the cash after the Home Office threatened to send her father back to Jamaica, Westminster Magistrates’ Court heard.

She stole it by borrowing a colleagues’ pass to open the till and take the notes.

District Judge Paul Goldspring said: ‘I don’t need to tell you how serious this is or how stupid you are. You didn’t just steal a tenner here, a tenner there. 

‘This isn’t a case where the till was left open. This is a case where she took steps to conceal her role, she asked someone else to use their code.’

Defence counsel Ciju Puthuppally said: ‘It was a moment of desperation.’

Mr Puthuppally explained that she was estranged from her mother from the age of ten and was close to her father.

He added: ‘Ms Badi doesn’t have any other parental figures. She had worked at Gucci for a year. Before that, three years at Christian Louboutin and two years at Prada.’

The court heard Badi was currently working at a jewellers, earning £1,700 a month.

Mr Puthuppally explained that her aging father was told that he would be deported: ‘They were desperate circumstances.’

The judge said: ‘I am prepared to proceed on the basis that the motive for the theft was to help challange your father’s deportation. I am not unsympathetic. 

‘I am satisfied that your motivation for this was not greed. Everybody who shops suffers – if there’s no theft, prices would be a lot lower.’

Badi admitted a single count of theft by employee. She was handed 200 hours of unpaid word and ordered to repay money at a rate of £100 a month.

Monday's horse racing NAP: Your best bets for today's racing at Windsor and Leicester from Callum Jamieson

WET looks to be the order of the day on Monday and it could be worth holding off on your bets till you have a better idea on conditions.

I'll be braving the elements at Windsor and will be keeping my powder dry until close to the off with a wild forecast in the offing.

That said, I do fancy a couple if the weather isn't apocalyptic, starting with a Clive Cox horse at Leicester.

JUST THE MAN (Leicester, 4.00, NAP) should be just the ticket on only his second handicap start.

He went straight into the tracker when running at Newbury and despite being well held in third on his handicap bow, a mark of 80 still looks overly generous.

He's looked a bit slow when push has come to shove in his most recent starts, and now upped in trip and given predicted conditions, this race should be better suited.

Cox and resident jockey Adam Kirby have a strong team heading up the M40 and it could be a clue in itself that Kirby heads to Leicester and not Windsor where Cox also runs a handful of horses.

This doesn't look the strongest heat – the Roger Charlton horse being the obvious threat – and represents a great opportunity to get his career on the right road.

Attention then switches back to the local and in the opener at Windsor JAMES WATT (Windsor, 5.45) should really end his dismal record in handicaps dropped into this Class 4.

The drop to five is interesting and I wouldn't be surprised to see Cameron Noble try and make all up the rail.

Monday Bets

4.00 Leicester – JUST THE MAN (NAP)

5.45 Windsor – JAMES WATT

7.15 Windsor – ICE AGE

Trainer Michael Bell is 2-6 this summer at Windsor and his three-year-old has caught the eye in better races.

The blinkers didn't work last time out. He was lit up far too early and ran out of juice a good way from home – I'm happy to whack a line through that run.

Prior to that he ran a big race when third over Guineas weekend. A return to that form and he'll be mighty hard to beat in this 0-85 with the talented Noble claiming 3lbs.

I also fancy ICE AGE (Windsor, 7.15) but expect that race to really cut up if the forecast of Noah's Arc arriving at Windsor is correct.

Eve Johnson Houghton has won four times here and the drop down to five isn't much of a concern.

A repeat of his recent Ripon run would likely be enough to win this, with nothing coming into this with form to write home about and a good few likely to hate the ground.

I'll leave this close to the off though. He was the overnight favourite and unlikely to be much of a price once a couple pull out when, not if, the rain arrives at Royal Windsor.

Georgina Rodriguez drinks wine and stuns in white jumpsuit as she cheers Cristiano Ronaldo onto latest trophy win

CRISTIANO RONALDO was cheered on to Nations League glory by his beautiful girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez.

The Juventus striker captained Portugal to a 1-0 win over Netherlands in front of a partisan crowd in Porto last night.




And Georgina, 25, was there to witness it all as she was spotted sipping a large glass of wine from a private box at the Estadio do Dragao.

The Spaniard, dressed in a white jumpsuit with a matching leather handbag, had a huge grin on her face as her footy fella led out his nation for kick-off.

And she was in good company, with the superstar’s eight-year-old son Cristiano Jr – the oldest of the forward’s four kids – sat alongside his grandma and Ronaldo’s mother Maria Dolores dos Santos Aveiro, who wore a vibrant red trouser suit.

After Ronaldo’s hat-trick against Switzerland on Wednesday secured their place in the final it turned out to be Goncalo Guedes who was the hero as Portugal became the inaugural Nations League champs as they added to their Euro 2016 crown.

And following the final whistle Georgina managed to get her hands on both her man and the silverware as she planted a kiss on the ex-Manchester United man's lips.

Georgina recently revealed she met Ronaldo, 34, while working in a Gucci store as she discussed their relationship.

She told Italy’s Elle: “The first meeting with Ronaldo was at Gucci where I worked as a sales assistant. Days later we saw each other again at another brand's event…

“It was then we could talk in a relaxed atmosphere, outside of my work environment… It was love at first sight for both.”

Rumours have been mounting that the couple are engaged, but although she admitted she would love to become his wife, she denied those claims that Ronaldo had already popped the question to Hola!

She said: “Every couple wants to get married and I would love to personally.

“Right how we have priorities and a lot of responsibilities, although in the future it would be marvellous to become Cristiano’s wife.”

The brunette and ex-Real Madrid and Manchester United hotshot have a one-year-old daughter called Alana Martina, while Georgina – born to a Spanish mum and Argentinian dad – is also raising Cristiano's near-two-year-old twins Eva and Mateo as well as Cristiano.

Incredible scans show baby boy born with one lung, one kidney and his heart on the wrong side

FRANKIE  Shopland is just like any other lively three-year-old.

He loves blowing bubbles and Peppa Pig, and he's always running around outside.


But Frankie was something of a miracle baby.

Because he was born with just one lung, one kidney and with his heart being on the wrong side.

Despite only being three-years-old, he's already spent more than 800 days in hospital, had two major surgeries and has only managed a nine-month stretch in his own home since being born in May 2016.

His parents, Amie Grant and Kerry Shopland, both 26, only found out something was up when the sonographer walked out halfway through Amie's 20-week scan.

“When that happened I knew full well that something wasn’t how it was supposed to be,” Amie, from southeast London, said.

“We sat in another little room and we waited for someone to come in and she said ‘On the scan, it shows the baby has only got one kidney and the heart is on the right side.

“I rang my mum and I burst into tears.”

The couple were offered a termination but wanted to give their baby the chance of life.

“They said they’d never seen anything like it," Amie recalled.

“The next question was ‘Do you want a termination?’ But we never even had the conversation. “We just both went on the spot: ‘No.’

“All we kept thinking was ‘It’s his choice.’ If his heart was functioning fine and there was no sign of any other problem, give him the chance. And that’s what we did.”

Three weeks later, a scan revealed that the baby only had one lung and at 26 weeks, Amie was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia.

By 29 weeks, the baby was in such distress that Amie was rushed to hospital for an emergency C-section.

Freddie was born weighing just 1lb 13oz, with his umbilical cords wrapped around his neck.

He was named after Chelsea fan Kerry's hero Frank Lampard.

Kerry said that the pair knew he was going to make it.

"We knew he was going to be a special baby. And he is.

“He’s technically half a human, but to us he’s everything.”

Amie said the pair were told before she went into theatre that Frankie might die but they refused to believe it.

“We didn’t show negativity, we didn’t speak negatively, it was Frankie’s path, his journey and if he was going to make it he would make that footprint for himself. We didn’t want to doubt him.”

The tot was rushed to a neonatal care unit where he was put on a ventilator and to the amazement of doctors, was able to breathe unaided on the ninth day.

After a month – when he would technically have only been just 30 weeks' gestation – Frankie was off all support and was only being given a sprinkling of oxygen to help him cope with having one lung.

He was discharged after three months.

But by November 2016 – two months after going home – Amie noticed Frankie turning grey and he was rushed back to St Thomas’.

There, doctors found he had bronchiolitis – a viral infection of the airways – and pneumonia.

During investigations, docs found that not only did the tot only have one lung, but he also had a narrow airway which had grown into the area where his lung should have been.

Although he was sent home, by Christmas the tot was back in hospital and his family was told he was so poorly he would have to stay there.

Meanwhile, Kerry and Amie had to move permanently to a Ronald McDonald House near to Evelina London Children’s Hospital, where Frankie was being treated.

During their stay, Amie discovered that she was pregnant with the pair's second baby, Delilah Rose, who is now two.

Frankie has had two major ops at Great Ormond Street – one to fit a plastic lung to act as scaffolding to keep his organs in the right place, and another to widen his airways.

Because Frankie was unable to use his vocal chords for so long due to being ventilated, he is unable to speak or drink.

He needed a feeding tube put into this stomach so that he can take in liquids.

After the surgery, he had to stay in hospital for a year and eventually came home in December 2017.

But that stay only lasted nine months as he became sick again and had to return to hospital.

Now three, Frankie was finally discharged this week and although he still can't speak or drink, his family are hoping that he'll improve as he gets older.'

If the NHS wasn’t here, my son wouldn’t be here. It makes you a bit tearful

Because of his unusual condition, his parents are simply taking each day as it comes.

Like any other three-year-old, Frankie loves playing around outdoors, dancing and watching PeppaPig.

HIs parents are now hoping to find out whether any other kids around the world have his rare condition.

Kerry added: “That is one thing we’d love to know – is there another Frankie or is he the only one?

“It’s undiagnosed in this country but who is to say there’s not another one somewhere in the world?”

Full-time mum Amie, who has since had another daughter, said that docs were puzzled as to why Frankie had been born this way and his sisters hadn't.

They're both overwhelmed by the support from the NHS and Ronald McDonalad House, which provides accommodation for seriously ill children when they spend long periods of time in hospital.

Kerry added: “If the NHS wasn’t here, my son wouldn’t be here. It makes you a bit tearful.”

Dr Shelley Riphagen, consultant in children's intensive care at Evelina London Children’s Hospital, said: “The health problems Frankie was born with are rare. He is a very unique little boy and has undergone many complex operations and procedures to improve his condition.

“He continues to be cared for by multiple teams at Evelina London, and has done so since he was a baby. We are all very glad that Frankie is doing well and spends quality time at home with his family.”

And Sue Bennett, deputy house manager of the Ronald McDonald House Evelina London, said: "We're so glad that Frankie and his family were able to stay together while he received treatment.

"People assume that you go into hospital, get your treatment, and then go home but for many families this isn't the case.

"We like to think of ourselves as a home from home for families like Frankie's."

Chernobyl explained: Why could they taste metal in the air?

Chernobyl is the hit HBO series examining the events surrounding the nuclear disaster in 1986. The show has been praised for its historically accurate details. Viewers are keen to find out the stories behind some of these aspects, including why those affected by the immediate disaster could taste metal in the air. Here’s all you need to know about why this was. 

Why could they taste metal in the air? 

Chernobyl on HBO shows in great detail the effects of radiation on the body. 

In episode one of Chernobyl, viewers saw the firefighters who were immediately on the scene speak of how they could taste metal in the air. 

When the explosion occurred on 26 April 1986 in the number four nuclear reactor, these firefighters were some of the first to arrive. 

When they got there they sprayed the open nuclear reactor with water and a number of them turned up without protective equipment. 

As a result, they were exposed to a great deal of radiation during the night. 

WHAT WAS THE VIENNA CONFERENCE?

In a podcast featuring show creator Craig Mazin and host Peter Sagal, the pair discuss the show and the historical moments behind it. 

According to Mazin, the fact they could taste metal is something he took from real reports of those there. 

He goes on to say that this is apparently a real symptom of intense radiation. 

He said: “There’s not a lot of experience with this, there have been a couple of incidences of this. This was the worst of them by far.” 

This symptom is believed to be a direct result to intense ionizing radiation.

WHAT HAPPENED IN THE CHERNOBYL FINALE?

Nuclear waste scientist Dr Claire Corkhill live tweeted the first episode and made mention of this. 

She said: “First hand reports of the workers and firefighters all said the same thing, that the air tasted metallic. 

“This was caused by hot particles of nuclear fuel that were thrown into the air by the explosions and fire.” 

It is also found that radiation therapy can sometimes cause people to have a metallic taste in their mouth.

The NHS website says that this symptom can be caused very moderately as a consequence of radiation therapy during cancer treatment.

Part of the reason that the firefighters has such an intense reaction as there was a lot of misinformation about what the explosion was caused by. 

HOW HISTORICALLY ACCURATE IS CHERNOBYL?

Later in the podcast, Mazin said of the residents of Pripyat that the next day they were not aware of what had happened. 

He said: “They were walking around under a cloud of smoke from a billowing nuclear reactor all day long.” 

Chernobyl is currently the highest rated show on IMDB, with many viewers gripped by the recreation of what happened at the plant. 

Chernobyl is available to watch on NOW TV now.

Lack of sleep can 'cause obesity' in children

We know that a lack sleep can have serious implications on the health and productivity of adults and teens – but how does it effect children?

New research has found that children who don’t get enough sleep are more likely to be obese because it can lead to poor dietary choices.

The study, carried out by the British Nutrition Foundation (BNF), found that 32% of primary school children and 70% of secondary school students don’t get nine hours of sleep a night – which is the minimum recommended amount.

According to the data, half of the secondary school pupils also reported waking up in the middle of the night at least once.

The survey assessed the way young people and children were eating, and found that a quarter of secondary school students and one in ten primary school pupils had not eaten breakfast that day.

Many were even missing out on the key nutrients in their meals, with 18% of secondary school students consuming fruit or vegetables in their first meal of the day.

Recent reports have found that fewer kids are playing outside and there is a debate over the time school days should start, so it’s clear that the physical health of children is at the forefront of the national agenda.

Dr Lucy Chambers, senior scientist at the BNF, said a bad night’s sleep can lead both adults and children to make unhealthy decisions when it comes to their food.

She said: ‘Where lack of, and disturbed, sleep can lead to both adults and young people feeling grumpy and irritable, regular poor-quality sleep can have a negative impact on dietary choices, including higher intakes of calories and more frequent snacking on less healthy foods.

‘The BNF’s Task Force report, published earlier this year, highlighted that lack of sleep, and interrupted sleep, may be linked to an increased risk of heart disease, stroke, Type 2 diabetes, obesity, and hypertension.’

The findings reflect those of a previous report published in Science Advances, which found that a night of missed sleep could leave you feeling physically weaker and more at risk of obesity.

In the data received, nearly two-thirds (59%) reported using screens before bedtime, with just under fifty% of primary school age children saying that they did the same.

The poll also examined the sleeping patterns of more than 1,500 adults and found that 43% get fewer than seven hours of sleep a night, while 80% reported waking up at least once in the night.

Kathryn Newton Is the Breakout Star of Big Little Lies — and She’s Just Getting Started

Join us for some Small Talk as we sit down with some of Hollywood’s biggest breakout stars.

Kathryn Newton is just getting started.

And by getting started, we mean continuing to beef up her already hefty roster of big-screen roles in films like Lady Bird, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Blockers, and Ben Is Back. Oh, and after wrapping up on AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire and the CW’s Supernatural, she made her HBO debut as Reese Witherspoon’s daughter on Big Little Lies and got a major leading role in Netflix’s The Society — which dropped the same day that her movie Pokémon Detective Pikachu hit theaters. Did we mention she's not even 23?

No big deal.

We talked to the star of the summer about teenage angst, being mentored by Reese Witherspoon (and Julia Roberts), and why she thinks it’s a good time to be a young woman in Hollywood. Plus, a little small talk about Gucci flip flops and The Office.

Warning: Minor spoilers for The Society ahead.

InStyle: What does a typical day in the life look like for you?

Kathryn Newton: I always, whether I’m working or not, wake up in a pile of poodles, 'cause I have three poodles and they all sleep with me — one on top of my head, one next to me, and one by my feet. I try to stay off my phone for as long as I can, and I’ll go downstairs and take my dog out to play, and then I have this new espresso machine that the director from Detective Pikachu gave me as a wrap gift, so now I have a coffee everyday.

I start there and then it’s either a meeting or maybe a fitting that I have to go do, or I go to set. It depends on what’s going on, but I always have my poodles in the morning.

I’ve read that you were an avid golfer. Do you still play?

I do! I’ve been playing a lot more since I’ve finally had some time. It’s just something I’ve always done and was really serious about in high school, and was looking to go to college through golf. It’s a goal of mine to go pro, but right now I’m just playing in charity events and working on my own golf line so I just want to keep doing it.

It’s something I’ve always done for fun but I love the fashion aspect of it too. Nobody understands that, but I think golf clothes are so cute so maybe that’s why I like it so much, not only as a competitive athlete but also the style.

Wait, tell me more about this golf line!

I just have these sketches and ideas, I want to do these gingham sets, and I’m really into track pants — I find I’m always wearing track pants on the golf course, so I want to create a pair that’s appropriate for a tournament that's fancy but still comfortable.

You’ve been a working actor since you were four years old. Do you ever yearn for a “normal” life?

I was thinking about this, because I keep thinking that my life is normal. It’s been normal to me, and my friends who are my age — we all have the same things we’re going through. Me and my best friend, we’re always going through the same thing but just in different ways, so I don’t really yearn for a normal life, I like this one. [Laughs]

I don’t really have that many actor friends,  my castmates are my close friends, but I have a lot of friends who are from high school and just from growing up who I’m still really close to, who have never even seen me act in anything, which is kind of funny.

I had the opportunity to go to college and be “normal” and I chose to do Big Little Lies instead, and my life really hasn’t been the same ever since, so it is normal to me but I wouldn’t change it for anything.

What was your high school experience like? Were you working and going to school?

Yes! I’ve always been such a nerd, I’ve always loved going to real school. I went to an all-girls Catholic school in Florida, and then I went to Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, California. I ran for school president as a freshman and gave out Kit-Kats and t-shirts and genuinely, no one knew who I was because I missed a lot of school for work. But golf gave me my friend group, my closest friends are still my golf team.

Your character in The Society is such a leader — do you consider yourself to be one in real life?

Well I think it’s kind of funny that no one voted for me [as class president] in real-life! [Laughs] I just don’t think I am a leader. No one listens to me in my real life! It’s kind of a dream come true, I really enjoyed playing Allie and having those scenes in the church where everyone was looking at me and I had all their attention, because that doesn’t happen in real life, so it was a lot of fun.

What are your thoughts on the finale? What do you think happens to your character Allie?

I think Allie has learned a lot in the game of power, and knows how difficult her job was, and that not a lot of people can handle it. And I think she’s not that worried, I think she’s confident enough in herself to know that it could crumble in the hands of someone like Lexie.

There was this feeling in the last scene where they’re taking me away in the car, I had this thought of, mm, you haven’t gotten me yet. I just don’t know that they’ve gotten her yet, and I don’t know that she wants to be the leader again. It was never really about that for Allie, her being the king. It’s more about the good of the society and I think she’s just more concerned about that than anything else. It’s not about her being in power.

What can you tell us about the ice cream-throwing scene in Big Little Lies?

I can tell you that it took Reese three times to get her, but let me tell you, she really did get Meryl with that ice cream.

You find these characters to play who have a sort of innocence to them at first and who then go down paths of relative darkness or maturity — what draws you to roles like that?

I’m very character-driven in the projects I choose. I've played the teenage daughter in Big Little Lies, and Abigail is a lot like me and not like me. I'm not like any of my characters, but I’ve been a teenager, and I’ve been through trying to figure myself out. 

A character like Allie doesn’t come around that often. She thinks her life is made up for her and she doesn’t have to do anything, but then everything changes and she has to grow. A lot of people have to do that in real life too, they have to learn to take control of their lives.

What do you hope we see more of when it comes to movies and shows about young girls?

Teenagers are not one dimensional and they’re not stereotypes. They’re not just angry and bratty and mad at the world. They’re humans trying to figure out the meaning of life and why we’re all here. And maybe we’ll never figure it out, but when you’re young, that’s when you have the most time to contemplate these things.

On a show like The Society, every character is relatable because they’re just not what you think they are at first. So I just hope that in TV and cinema, we keep telling stories that are true to who people are. And I really think it’s happening, there's a surge in roles for young people. It’s a really good time to be a young woman in Hollywood.

You’ve worked with a lot of amazing actors. Is there anyone you’d consider to be your biggest mentor?

I would say that Reese Witherspoon is. Julia Roberts has been, too. I’ve gotten really lucky just being in their presence and working with them.

Reese is so generous, and brought me up, and always believed in me and has given me so much confidence that I feel that I want to do that for other people, too. Julia as well, she’s given me so much love, and they’ve showed me the way on sets. They’ve both paved the way for girls like me.

We were filming Big Little Lies when I got the role in The Society, and I asked Reese, 'Oh my god, what do I do?: And she told me to have everyone over for dinner and take everyone bowling. That’s what she did for us on Big Little Lies too, she brought us out to dinner, and it creates a community and sisterhood that translates onscreen. It hasn’t ended since we finished, which means so much to me. Growing up on sets, you want to be friends with everyone, but your life goes on and you go back to high school and go home and you have to, in my case, make your bed. And then you think it’s over and you’ll never see them again, but that just hasn’t been true.

Small Talk:

What’s your favorite item of clothing that you own?

My Gucci flip-flops. They have these diamonds all over them and I've had them a couple of years and wear them probably every day.

Who have you been the most starstruck to meet?

I met Paul Rudd and Donald Glover at the Big Little Lies premiere at the same time, and I was just confused and shocked, and it was the first time I was ever starstruck because I couldn’t figure out what was happening.

I was with Zoe [Kravitz] and she was like, 'Oh, here’s Paul Rudd and Childish Gambino,' and I couldn’t really talk. I didn’t know why this was happening, and I immediately asked for a photo. It was blurry, but I did get it.

What Instagram account are you obsessed with right now?

I’m really obsessed with this Instagram account called @memesofthesociety because they post all these memes of our show and we have a group Instagram chat with my cast and we’re just constantly sending each other edits and memes. There are some talented meme-makers out there.

What do you wish more people knew about you?

I feel like people think I have a pink palace or something, and I’m all fluffy, but I’m really pretty much in sweatpants all the time and a little more normal than people think. I think people think I’m a poodle in real life, and I’m only a poodle on like, Fridays.

What’s the last thing you binge-watched?

The Crown and Parks and Recreation. It used to be The Office, but I’ve watched it all twice now, and I needed to move on.

What’s the next thing you’re looking forward to?

I’m really looking forward to going to Paris for the Dior haute couture fashion show in July. It’s always a dream getting to go to those shows. I cry at those things, everyone in Paris is so much more chic than I am.

Lewis Hamilton has boasted about flying his beloved bulldog from LA to London by private jet — despite going vegan to help save the planet.

The F1 ace revealed he regularly flies dog Coco from his home in Malibu so it can catch up with pal Roscoe, who prefers life in the UK.

Hamilton, 34, posted a picture of Coco on a private jet, adding: “In case you didn’t know about my two kids.

“This is Roscoe and Coco. Coco is living the life by the beach in Malibu. Roscoe is in the UK with grandma enjoying the sun. To be reunited soon.”

Experts estimate that each 5,400-mile flight from Los Angeles to Heathrow generates 3,681 pounds of CO2.

It comes despite the Mercedes driver committing becoming vegan because he wanted to live the healthiest possible lifestyle and avoid damaging the planet.

He said: “I stopped eating red meat two years ago. I have generally been pescatarian for the majority of the year and now I've cut fish.

“Pollution coming from the amount of cows that are being produced is incredible. The cruelty is horrible and I want a healthier life.”
