JESSICA CHASTAIN SLAMS GOT’S ‘STRENGTH’ IN ‘RAPE’ THEME

The episode, "The Last of the Starks," depicts Turner’s Sansa Stark in conversation with The Hound (Rory McCann) about the abuse she endured at the hands of Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon). In the show, she said it made her stronger.

She tweeted: "Rape is not a tool to make a character stronger. A woman doesn't need to be victimized in order to become a butterfly. The #littlebird was always a Phoenix. Her prevailing strength is solely because of her. And her alone."

WILLIAM AND KATE GUSH OVER MEGHAN AND HARRY’S BABY AS THE PAIR TALK MORE KIDS

William said: "Obviously thrilled. Absolutely thrilled. Looking forward to seeing them in the next few days when things have quietened down. I'm very pleased and glad to welcome my own brother into the sleep deprivation society that is parenting. So that will be fun too."

The Duchess, noting the closeness in age between their children’s birthdays, (Princess Charlotte on May 2, Prince Louis on April 23), said she was delighted.

"It’s such a great time of the year to have a baby. And yes, spring’s in the air and everything so it’s pretty great," she said. "As William said, I look forward to meeting him (the baby) and finding out what his name is going to be. So it’s really exciting for both of them. And I’m wishing them the best in these next few weeks. It’s always a bit daunting the first time around."

According to People, Harry and Meghan are already discussing having "one more" child. There are also reports that Meghan opted to give birth in a London hospital, despite rumors of a home birth.

NICOLE KIDMAN TALKS GETTING OVER TOM CRUISE, FINDING LOVE WITH KEITH URBAN

Nicole Kidman is opening up about love, life and her faith.

TOM CRUISE

Kidman, 51, who was married to Tom Cruise, 56, for a decade, tells Australian Women’s Weekly that she leaned on her friends, especially Hugh and Deborah Jackman, after their 2001 split.

The Big Little Lies star says: "When I got divorced, Hugh and Deb were so much a part of my healing. They were some of my best friends through that period."

Cruise and Kidman share two adopted children, Isabella, 26, and Connor, 24.

FAMILY NOW

Kidman married Keith Urban, 51, in 2006, and together, they share Sunday, 10, and Faith, 8. She says that these days, she values her family life above all else.

Kidman tells InStyle (she covers the June issue along with her Big Little Lies cast): "I love having my artistic path, and then my other passion is my family. That's probably all I need in my life. Other people are off doing things like having a girls' weekend. I don't have that because I go home. I want to be with my children and my husband."

She continues: "I'm an introvert, so my nature is very quiet, and I prefer being home. I'm deeply sensitive, so my ability to handle an enormous amount of exterior stress or toxicity … I know when I'm in the wrong place, and I go, and I leave. My home is very nourishing."

Kidman also shares the best advice she got from their family priest: "The greatest thing our family priest told us very early on in our marriage was, 'Always kiss hello and kiss goodbye.' It just keeps you connected."
