Anna Friel
Actress Anna Friel has denied reports she's recruited two nannies to look after her six-year-old daughter while she works.

But now she's spoken out to silence the gossips, insisting rumors she employs two nannies at the same time were sparked by a misunderstood quote.

David Thewlis Pleased With Anti-'Anonymous' Campaign

David Thewlis
British actor David Thewlis was pleased to see Shakespeare campaigners waging war against his new movie Anonymous, because he is convinced all the "fuss" will give the film a box office boost.

The controversial picture suggests William Shakespeare was not the true author of his classic texts, and a campaign was launched this month to protest against the film.

Activists covered up a Shakespeare memorial in The Bard's birthplace of Stratford-upon-Avon, England and removed his name from road and pub signs, but Thewlis is adamant the campaign will actually be of benefit.

He tells Britain's D...

Two Jews' Review 'Anonymous' And Battle Over This Political Thriller (Video)

October 25th, 2011 11:00am EDT
Anonymous
Two Jews on Film - By Joan Alperin-Schwartz: Yes 'Anonymous' is a political thriller, but it's one that is set in the past, 400 years ago to be precise.

The film, directed by Roland Emmerich and written by John Orloff (took him 15 drafts to get it right) supports the premise that Edward de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford, (Rhys Ifans)a prominent aristocrat, was the real author of the works attributed to William Shakespeare. Sounds dull? Believe me, it's anything but.

Whether you agree with the premise or not, 'Anonymous' is an exciting, sexy, suspenseful, exquisitely acted and intriguing fi...
