Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright getting on like a House on fire

Their characters Frank and Claire Underwood may be weighed down by the pressures of their powerful positions and focused on getting what they want, by any means, in the dark political drama. But Kevin insisted between takes they find a lot of light relief. He said: “We’ve known each other for more than 20 years.

We’ve had one other opportunity to work together, on a film called Hurlyburly, and we didn’t have that much to do together in that film. “But there’s a trust and an ease and an affection that we have for each other and for the work – and there’s a tremendous amount of giggles that happen between us. Because we like to have a really good time. “It just continues to be a very easy experience with her.”

GORDON RAMSAY has revealed that his family have created food-inspired alternative “curses” so his children don’t swear at home. The star, 48, has been dubbed the foul-mouthed chef because of his prolific on-screen bad language.

But according to E! News, Gordon, who has four children, Megan, 16, Matilda, 13, and 15-year-old twins, Jack and Holly, with wife Tana, told US show Jimmy Kimmel Live! that his offspring “don’t curse”. Gordon said he told his kids that “cursing is not smart” and “so I came up with some really nice, sort of alternatives”. “So rather than saying the word ’s**t,’ which, you know, is not nice... ’Shitake’! Like the mushroom. It’s not nice saying the word ’f***,’ so we say the word ’fructose’. ’Ass? Asparagus!”’

Buffy The Vampire Slayer star SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR has said she’s too old to battle any more bloodsuckers. The 37-year-old actress – who has just been announced as the voice of a new role in animated show Star Wars Rebels – rose to fame as kick-ass school girl Buffy Summers in JOSS WHEDON’s

hit show, which ran from 1997 to 2003. Like all cult shows, there is often internet buzz about a possible spin-off movie or reunion, but Sarah told fans not to expect one from Buffy.

She said: “I joke that I’d have to have a walker and my walker would be made of wood, and that would be how I would stake people, at this point, I’m a little old.” The mother-of-two added: “We have them [reunions] all the time, they’re just not televised.”

VINCE VAUGHN sealed his place in Hollywood history when he put his hand and footprints in cement – but he won’t be celebrating too hard because of his gruelling schedule on True Detective. The actor is hard at work shooting the second season of the hit series, opposite COLIN FARRELL.

The Wedding Crashers star was joined by his family and famous friends for the ceremony on Hollywood Boulevard, outside the famous TCL Chinese Theatre, where he left his prints and signed his name alongside movie legends.

Speaking afterwards, he said: “What was going through my mind was I had better not mess this up, I’m only going to get one chance. So when I’m in that moment, writing in cement, I’m also... making sure I’m not running out of time. It’s a real honour and a lot of fun to be included here.”

Vince added: “I’ve got to get up tomorrow to shoot True Detective which is a lot of fun so there won’t be too much celebration tonight. It’s just nice to have my family and friends around.”
