This is the moment an incredibly cute baby gorilla appeared to collapse in a fit of giggles when an adult started ticking his tummy.
Five-month-old Jengo was being showered with affection by the other gorillas in his enclosure at Leipzig zoo in eastern Germany when one of them reached out and gently prodded him on the ribs.
Displaying an almost human response to the sensation, Jengo's eyes lit up with joy and his mouth broke into a huge grin as the adult gorilla played with him.
In his brief career to date, actor Ben Whishaw has made a big impact. He’s best known to theatregoers for taking the title role in Trevor Nunn’s award-winning production of Hamlet at the Old Vic in 2004, for which he was nominated for Best Actor honours in the 2005 Laurence Olivier and Whatsonstage.com Theatregoers’ Choice Awards and Outstanding Newcomer in the Evening Standard Awards.
Whishaw’s other professional stage credits have included Brother Jasper in His Dark Materials at the National, directed by Nicholas Hytner, and the leading role of Elliot in Philip Ridley’s...
Pinewood Studios continues to invest in its facilities and the latest offering for clients is a brand new, state of the art facility for both film and television production.
The new stage is named ‘Q Stage’ and was formally opened by Ben Whishaw, the latest actor to play the famous Q character in the Bond franchise.
The development comprises a 30,000 sq ft stage and 15,000 sq ft of production accommodation and workshops. Pinewood’s newest stage was completed on 27 September 2013 and the first production to move in is a large, inward investment film.
Ben Whishaw’s turn as hi-tech boffin Q in the new James Bond film Skyfall is brave new territory indeed, he tells James Rampton.
Ben Whishaw admits that he was completely blindsided by this one. Hailed as one of the finest actors of his generation, the 32-year-old is about to play the MI6 boffin Q – all gadgets and geekiness — in Skyfall, the new Bond movie. But, he confesses, “I absolutely did not see the offer coming.”
Sam Mendes, the director of the film, had invited him for dinner. “I thought we were going to be discussing a Shakespeare project,” recalls...
They're known for their pale complexions as Lady Mary and Lady Edith in Downton Abbey.
So for this year's Golden Globes, actresses Michelle Dockery and Laura Carmichael decided to match their fair skin with pale gowns.
Michelle wore a strapless, sequinned Oscar De La Renta prom dress with raised hemline showing off her matching satin heels.
The pair were just two of the ITV period drama's cast to attend the star-studded ceremony at the Beverly Hilton, where Downton is up for Best TV Drama.
Though 2010′s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was a billion dollar global blockbuster, critics hated it. It sits at a rotten 33% on Rotten Tomatoes. Might the producers think “if the movie was adored, maybe we could have made more”? That possibility was certainly part of Tuesday’s news that Pirates of the Caribbean 5, originally scheduled for a July 2015 release date, has been delayed. Disney executives said the film “isn’t there yet” scriptwise, and the delay will allow producer Jerry Bruckerheimer, screenwriter Jeff Nathanson, and directors Joachim Rønning and...
Whishaw prefers not to discuss his personal life, saying: "For me, it’s important to keep a level of anonymity. As an actor, your job is to persuade people that you’re someone else. So if you’re constantly telling people about yourself, I think you’re shooting yourself in the foot." In 2011 he told Out magazine, "As an actor you have total rights to privacy and mystery, whatever your sexuality, whatever you do. I don't see why that has to be something you discuss openly because you do something in the public eye. I have no understanding of why we turn actors into celebrities." However,...
The adorable cubs may look cute and unassuming but they are in fact the rarest of their species – and could grow to be the biggest cats in the world.
The four handsome male ‘liger’ cubs are the first ever to be born from a white male lion and white female tiger, making them the world’s most unique big cats.
There are only around 300 white lions and 1,200 white tigers left in the world, so the cubs’ father, Ivory and mother, Saraswati, are extremely rare in their own right.
