The premiere for the film How to steal 2 million was a real Generations affair. Held at Killarney mall the event was well attended. The movie directed by Charlie Mvundla is produced under father, Mfundi Mvundla’s production company. So obviously it was filled with Generations actors past and present from Akin Omotoso to Thami Mngqolo who plays Senzo on the soapie. The theme for the premiere was black and bling yet not even the cast and director followed it.Hlubi Mboya looked beautiful in a white dress. Our own little Hollywood starlet Terry Pheto was also there, she plays Olive in the film. Everyone was in jovial spirits which was probably because of the Patron that was on offer for guests. All in all it was a good night, the movie wasn’t horrible.
Jenifer Hudson says that her fiance, David Otunga isn’t as happy as she is about her dramatic weight loss. In an interview with Jay Leno, Jennifer said “He’s getting adjusted to it. He’s not really into change that much so he fusses at me like, “Why do you have to have to get all dressed up to go out and why can’t you just go our like you used to?” And I’m like “I’m a walking billboard now honey”
My friends are also divided on whether she looks good in her newly slim body. Some of them commend her for loosing all that weight while others say that she’s too skinny to be healthy. What do you think?

Jafta Mamabolo has been working in film, television and radio for several years. His early work includes presenting on Craze, Yo TV and The Molo Show but he is best known for his role in the feature film, Jerusalema. Last week I caught up with him at the Patron Silver Party and asked him what it’s like to be acting in country’s biggest soapie, Generations. P.S. wait for the video to buffer after you’ve pressed play now.
Melissa Leo swore as she excitedly accepted an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Fighter, a movie that propelled the 50- year old actress into the mainstream for the first time in her career. This was Melissa’s second Oscar nomination but first win.
The actress accidentally dropped the F word as she delivered a heartfelt acceptance speech “When I watched Kate (Winslet) two years ago it looked so f***ing easy,” she said, before realizing her blunder.
The Holly wood Awards show season continues with the 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, honouring television and film. Like most ceremonies this year, there weren’t too many surprises.
For one, Natalie Portman’s win for her role in the thriller ‘The Black Swan’ was predictable. But Natalie swearing in her acceptance speech was not. The visibly pregnant Portman said “I’d like to thank my parents, who taught me never to be an ass” when she received her award. Not a big deal, right? But the Awards were so boring that this seems to be the big news of the night.
89-year-old Betty White also amused the crowd when she received her trophy for the best actress in a comedy series. She seemed to be shocked by the the nude SAG trophy that was awarded to her. “Oooh!” she said as she caressed its bare back. She then grinned sinfully and wrapped her hands around its body and said “I can’t say thank you enough”
Apart from that, many of the winners of the SAG awards also made the honours roll at the Golden Globe awards, with ‘The King’s Speech’ and ‘The Fighter’ taking home 2 SAG awards each.
And Colin Firth obviously won the Best Actor Award for his portrayal of British King George VI in ‘The King’s Speech’.
