Gemma Ward News Archive
Cinderelli Cinderelli, we can totally envision the sweet Emma Watson as Cinderelli!
Which could potentially happen, as Harry Potter's leading lady is reportedly in talks to STAR in a live-action version of the CLASSIC Disney Princess tale Cinderella, based on the even more classic — and far more sinister — folk tale made famous by the Brothers Grimm!
Cinderella is the latest installment in Disney's reworking of their iconic animations, and follows such eye-candy treats as Oz:The Great and Powerful, Alice in Wonderland, and Angelina Jolie's under-construction project, Maleficent.
We wonder, IF Emma turns down the part of Cinderella, who could possibly fit their acting foot into the sparkly glass slipper that is this film?!
What do U think perezcious readers?!
Oh Gemma Ward, how we’ve missed you!
The 23-year-old has put those retirement rumors to rest and is once again back on magazine covers.
Ward was photographed by Peter Ash Lee for the cover of a supplement to the Australian Harper’s Bazaar.
The issue, called Talking Points, shows a glowing Gemma with minimal makeup or hair product.
There’s something so simplistic about the look that we’re loving.
Welcome back to modeling bb! We know movies are fun, but hopefully we’ll see more of her in upcoming features.
At the end of 2009, model Gemma Ward stepped out of the spotlight after being scrutinized for her weight, but apparently it was more than that.
In a recent interview, the Aussie says Heath Ledger's death was the real reason behind her decision to leave..
"I have taken a break from the media spotlight for the past few years and it was something spurred by Heath's death. (Heath and I) first met in New York and we were both struggling with things that I won't get into, and we bonded over that.
I kind of met him at first and said, 'Listen my mum's living with me right now and I'm kind of going through a hard time and I'm not interested in having a serious relationship with somebody right now' and he was like, 'You know, um, let's just be there for each other through these hard times we're both going through'. And we developed a relationship and we started seeing each other."
Once they became official, the two spent the Christmas of 2007 together in Perth.
"The time we spent in Perth was incredible because we were both from Perth and it was also a time when it was beautiful in Perth and both our families were there and we met each other's families. We were able to not be in any kind of a spotlight and not have to be meeting with people or be hounded by press or anything. We lived in a magical kind of world where we weren't intruded upon."
Less than a month later, Heath was found dead in his New York City apartment.
Supermodel Lily Cole says she may quit modeling for acting.
How very Gemma Ward of her!
"I love acting and if the right opportunity did come along I would definitely consider quitting altogether. It is certainly something I want to prioritise in the future. It's not a finite decision though - I may not get the opportunity. If a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity came along I'd even consider leaving Cambridge to do a film. I'd definitely weigh up my options and talk to my tutors about flexibility."
Wow. Sounds like she's really serious about this acting thing. At least she has both her modeling and education to fall back on if that "right opportunity" never comes along.

Suck on this haters!
After being attacked for her weight and taking a break from modeling, Gemma Ward is finally getting back to work. But instead of the runway, the model will be hitting the big screen with Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides!
In the 4th installment of the Pirates franchise, Gemma will be playing a mermaid alongside the French Connection's Astrid Berges-Frisbey.
