Taylor Swift is famous for pouring her feelings into her music, but the singer-who-wears-her-heart-on-her-sleeve had to set her emotions aside for her latest movie role. The 24-year-old pop star plays a woman with no emotions in the upcoming flick The Giver, in which she appears alongside an all-star cast that includes Meryl Streep, Katie Holmes, Alexander Skarsgård and Jeff Bridges. And considering we're used to a candid Swift who isn't afraid to be open with her fans, the part was definitely a challenge for the "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer.
Furious 7 has racked up an eight-day total of more than $250 million in China, setting new milestones and completely dominating the box office in the world's second-biggest film market. The movie had 584,500 screenings, according to data from research group Entgroup, and a staggering 29,828,822 admissions.

Talk about good timing! Prince William has started paternity leave early after having completed a phase of his air ambulance helicopter training early. "This is due to a combination of the Duke performing well in the various modules and having very good flying conditions that allowed flight training and assessment to progress more quickly than had been planned," said a Kensington Palace spokesperson. It's a relief, too, because it means Prince William will be right by Kate Middleton's side when she goes into labor, so he won't have to worry about making a mad dash from his training base in Norwich to the city to be there for royal baby No. 2's arrival! Per the palace, he will remain on unpaid paternity leave until June 1.
