TGL Round-Up: Meghan Markle Opens Up About Prince Harry, Studio Boss Fired Over Valerian Movie Flop, Chris Pine Playing RFK


Suits actress Meghan Markle has opened up for the first time about her whirlwind romance with Prince Harry.

The Suits star spoke out about her relationship with the 32-year-old royal in the October issue of Vanity Fair, her first time doing so since Harry confirmed their relationship in a rare statement in November.

“I can tell you that at the end of the day I think it’s really simple,” Markle, 36, said. “We’re two people who are really happy and in love.”

Markle and Harry are rumoured to be engaged.

Edouard de Vesinne, EuropaCorp Deputy CEO has been fired after the flop of “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.”

In a statement, EuropaCorp said the “shareholders’ board has decided to terminate the mandate of Edouard de Vesinne as deputy CEO of EuropaCorp effective immediately.”

Variety speculate his exit could be one of the first casualties of the crash of Luc Besson’s $180 million “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.”

Chris Pine is set to star in a limited series about Robert F. Kennedy at Hulu, Variety has confirmed.

The series will be based on the Larry Tye biography “Bobby Kennedy: The Making Of A Liberal Icon.”
