Kendall Jenner talks overcoming unhappiness as an 'extremely overworked' young model, plus more news
Kendall Jenner reflects on learning to set boundaries
Kendall Jenner was working so hard and so often in her early modeling days that she nearly collapsed under the pressure, she tells Jay Shetty in a new edition of his “On Purpose” podcast. “There was a long period of time, I’d say the core five years of it, that I was extremely overworked,” says Kendall, 26. “Not my happiest — not because I wasn’t doing what I loved, but just because I was overwhelmed and I felt like I was saying ‘yes’ to everything because I felt really, really grateful and really honored to be in the position. So I was always saying ‘yes’ and it just took a lot out of me to the point where I just wasn’t happy anymore. And so, I had to set those boundaries for myself.” The runway model and Hulu star has been open in the past about her lifelong battle with anxiety. And she tells Jay realizing it’s OK to say “no” sometimes and “prioritizing” her own “happiness and … well-being” “has done wonders” for her. “I just knew that if I had gone any further I was going to lose myself,” she recalled. “There were people who had worked for me who didn’t want me to stop because it might have benefited them,” she continued. “But I got to that point and I just knew I had to do it.” Now, Kendall says she sees a therapist and practices self-affirmation exercises. “I love just sitting [in front of a mirror] and reassuring myself of who I am, because that’s another thing with me: There’s so many false narratives,” she explains. “We live in such an interesting industry and in such an interesting time with social media, but it can be very hard sometimes,” Kendall adds. “You can fall victim to so many things that don’t serve you and that don’t make you happy. If your happiness depends on the actions of others, you’re at the mercy of things that you can’t control — and that’s never where I want to be.”

Dionne Warwick weighs in on Leonardo DiCaprio’s alleged 25-year-old dating rule
You snooze, you lose, Leonardo DiCaprio. In the wake of the 47-year-old star’s recent split from actress Camila Morrone, 25, a Reddit graph that seemingly proves he’s never dated a woman younger than 25 went viral again. Now, Twitter’s octogenarian queen of snark, Dionne Warwick, is gracing us with her thoughts on Leo’s alleged love interest age ceiling. “I just heard about Leonardo DiCaprio’s 25 year rule,” the Grammy winner, 81, posted this week. “His loss. You don’t know what you’re missing.” The Reddit graph’s British tabloid sourcing may be a bit sketchy, but its numbers don’t lie: Over the course of more than 20 years and eight relatively well-documented romances, Leo has reportedly stopped dating four women — models Erin Heatherton, Kelly Rohrbach and Nina Agdal, and now, Camila — the year they turned 25. But that could be changing, as one Twitter user noted to Dionne shortly after she weighed in on the matter. Pointing to a People report that claims Leo and model Gigi Hadid, 27, are currently “getting to know each other,” the Twitter user joked, “He heard you Dionne.”

Prince William inherits centuries-old estate worth $1.2B
The wills of the British royal family are never made public, so the world is unlikely to see an exact breakdown of what Queen Elizabeth II left to her descendants when she died last week. But a complex series of laws related to the family’s wealth and land holdings shows that with King Charles III now on the throne, his son, Prince William has inherited a private estate worth about $1.2 billion, according to CNN. William, who became first in line to the throne when the queen died, now owns the Duchy of Cornwall estate (and the Duke of Cornwall title), having inherited them from Charles. The duchy, or dukedom, dates back to 1337 and is comprised of nearly 140,000 acres of land and property in England, the outlet reports. The estate’s revenue is reportedly “used to fund the public, private and charitable activities” of the Duke of Cornwall, now William, and both the king and his heir are barred from gaining a personal profit from the sale of any duchies. They do not, however, have to pay any taxes on the duchy, although Charles started paying income tax voluntarily on the Duchy of Cornwall estate in 1993. “Of course, voluntary income tax [is] not a fixed rate, and they don’t have to declare how much income they’re making their tax on,” said royal finance expert and author Laura Clancy. “So actually it’s just like plucking a figure out of thin air.” Last year, Forbes reported the queen’s personal wealth was around $500 million. Most of that now goes to the king and the first in line to the throne.
Ana de Armas details hours-long Marilyn Monroe transformation for ‘Blonde’
Ana de Armas is opening up about the hours-long process of transforming into Marilyn Monroe each day on the set of “Blonde,” her new biopic about the silver screen legend. “That was quite a journey every day,” the actress told Entertainment Tonight at the film’s Los Angeles premiere on Tuesday, Sept. 13. “It was about three hours to get ready, every morning. We have an incredible crew of my hair and makeup team, and then Jennifer, our costume designer, was incredible too.” We have over — I don’t know — more than a 100 wardrobe changes in the movie, and they’re all so beautiful and iconic on everything,” she continued. “Every detail is just, you know, perfect.” The hair, makeup and costumes Ana wore as Marilyn also had to change to reflect the 36-year span of her life that “Blonde” covers. “So, that process of aging, and the very iconic looks or recreations of films that she did — every day when we achieved that look, and we looked in the mirror and we knew we got it, was like, really beautiful,” she recalled. Asked about the 14-minute standing ovation “Blonde” received this month at the Venice Film Festival, Ana described the crowd’s response as “magical,” but intense. “It’s just more than you can imagine, and 14 minutes — It was unbelievable,” she said. “I didn’t know what to do with myself, and everybody — it gets very emotional because this is the reaction you hope for. But when it happens, it’s a lot.” “Blonde” hits theaters Friday before landing on Netflix on Sept. 28.
Demi Lovato, 30, says current tour will be her last
Is Demi Lovato done with touring? It sounded that way in an Instagram Story post she shared on Tuesday, Sept. 13, ahead of her performance in Santiago, Chile. “I’m so f****** sick I can’t get out of bed,” she wrote, according to screenshots via PopCrave. “I can’t do this anymore. This next tour will be my last. I love and thank you guys.” The singer, 30, is currently touring in support of her new album, “Holy F***,” with multiple dates scheduled through early November, according to Billboard. It’s unclear if she was just frustrated by her illness when she shared the touring reveal (“I barely have a voice,” she revealed elsewhere on Instagram) or if she really does plan to call it quits once she wraps up her current slate of shows.
Jada Pinkett Smith celebrates Bald Is Beautiful Day
The entertainment world seems to have recovered from Will Smith’s Oscars slap, but Jada Pinkett Smith’s still helping raise awareness about the issue that inspired it. On Tuesday, Sept. 13, the “Red Table Talk” host shared a glowing new selfie in honor of Bald Is Beautiful Day. “Happy Bald is Beautiful day to all my brothers and sisters with no hair❣️❣️❣️,” she wrote in the caption. Jada suffers from alopecia, an autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss. After spotting a new patch of baldness in December 2021, the actress told social media followers she was “gonna have to take it down to the scalp so nobody thinks she got brain surgery or something,” adding, “Me and this alopecia are going to be friends … period!” A few months later, Jada’s husband Will infamously slapped Chris Rock onstage at the 2022 Oscars when the comic cracked a “G.I. Jane” joke about Jada’s shaved head. She later addressed her struggle with anxiety about hair loss on “Red Table Talk,” dedicating an episode to stories about how and why hair loss can impact people’s lives.
