Courteney Cox distances herself from Harry’s drugs claims

Sitcom classic Friends actress Courtney Cox wasn’t too happy after Prince Harry claimed in his best-selling book Spare that he had a “delightful trip” after discovering a box of magic mushroom chocolates in her fridge during a party. 

Cox told Variety that Harry did stay over at her home for a couple of days when he was in his 20s, however, she wasn’t aware that there were magic mushrooms.

When asked about the claims, she responded: “Yes, it’s gotten back to me about it. I’m not saying there were mushrooms. I definitely wasn’t passing them out”.

The actress said she hasn’t read the book, however, she may listen to the audiobook of Spare. Apart from the controversy, Cox said Harry is a “nice person”.

Evangeline Lilly’s strange Charles fetish

Ant-Man actress Evangeline Lilly has found appreciation for something the press and public have been making fun of – King Charles’s ears. 

It has been portrayed over the years by the media in comic strips or illustrations of the exaggeration of the monarch’s ears. 

Lilly confessed that she has a strange obsession with touching people’s ears and said Charles’s low-hanging ear lobes are at the top of her list to touch.

Appearing on the The Jonathan Ross Show, Lilly said: “The best ear lobes are really old English gentlemen’s. They hang way down. I’d go for those in a minute. Come on! I would”. 

She explained the obsession isn’t sexual but rather that she likes “the met of the lobe”.

“I just like to fondle it. It’s not sexual,” she said.
