‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix” director Simon Kinberg says he did not include a cameo love scene between Wolverine star Hugh Jackman and Sophie Turner because he is 27 years older than her. ”If you know the ‘Dark Phoenix’ story, you’d want to really service the love story between Logan and Jean. And I think the notion of Hugh Jackman, as great as he looks for his age, and Sophie Turner — it didn’t sit well with me. Or anyone else! There was an element of this being Jean’s story. And I was committing so fully to it that I didn’t want to run the risk of pulling away from Jean by going to the well of a fan-favorite character in these movies. I wanted this to be a very different experience of seeing an X-Men movie.”

Hugh Grant tells The Hollywood Reporter that he’s too old for rom-coms. “I’ve gotten too old and ugly and fat to do them anymore. So now I’ve done other things and I’ve got marginally less self-hatred. I was being paid tons of money. I was very lucky. And most of those romantic comedies I can look squarely in the face — one or two are shockers, but on the whole, I can look them in the face and people like them. And I am a big believer that our job is to entertain. It’s not to practice some weird, quasi-religious experience.”
