We often follow the life and times of Leilani Dowding here on this column. So, after seeing her Instagram photos this week I couldn’t resist letting you all know that the former Miss Great Britain had shared some snaps of her sexy six-pack working out in West Hollywood with former Eastenders star Robert Kazinsky.
Rob has been hanging around in Tinseltown for sometime now and finally it seems to be paying off for him after years of grafting and doing the rounds along with the many wannabe Brits who are also trying their luck in Hollywood.
Kazinsky is now starting to scratch the surface!
Next month will see the release of Pacific Rim; it’s one of those Alien blockbusters that will leave us all bloated with popcorn after. The film sees an alien attack threaten the Earth’s existence, and the humans fight back by piloting giant robots that are deployed to see off the menace… Oo-er…
Hunky Rob is one of the main characters in the film playing Chuck Hansen, alongside a bevy of Brits that includes Luther star Idris Elba.
And, it doesn’t stop there; Rob’s upcoming successes include a lead role on HBO’s True Blood playing the role of Ben Flynn.
With such a workload on his plate, I’m surprised he can even find the time to hang out with the lovely Leilani… Apparently the pair once dated back in 2007, however, I’m told the pair are just good (ahem) friends now…
‘Pacific Rim’ is released in the U.S July, 12!

It’s finally here… The hotly anticipated Superman reboot, Man Of Steel, starring Brit actor Henry Cavill, is released this Friday. Woot, woot!
With Christopher Nolan producing and Zack Snyder directing, film giants Warner Brothers hope that Nolan can sprinkle the same magic on Superman as he did with Batman.
And in my opinion Nolan and Snyder have pretty much done it, after seeing the mammoth movie, action-wise, as you watch Man Of Steel it just gets bigger and bigger!
In an extended opening that takes place on Krypton, Jor-El played by Russell Crowe, is presiding over his son’s birth in the midst of a military coup let by General Zod played by Michael Shannon.
Crowe the rides a winged alien in true fantasy film style through all sorts of explosions and carnage that ends with baby Superman crash-landing on Earth. Phew…
The film often jumps between present-day action, as the adult where Clark Kent helps those in need, to the life of a young Clark who is coming to terms with his super powers guiding by his parents Jonathan and Martha Kent played by Kevin Costner and Diane Lane.
It’s only after reporter Lois Lane played by Amy Adams finds him, around the same time as General Zod arrives on Earth, that he has to don his famous blue suit and gets busy saving the planet earth.
Tonally you can see Nolan’s influence but while this adopts some of the seriousness of the Batman films, it also has the comic book color of The Avengers.
For the most part there is no disguising his identity by wearing glasses and he has never referred to directly as Superman, the “S” on his chest is now the Kryptonian symbol for hope.
Ultimately though, “Man of Steel” has landed in spectacular style. This is a truly SUPER blockbuster!

Despite his past battles with sex addiction, comedian Russell Brand insisted he never cheated on his ex-wife, pop star Katy Perry during their marriage, which ended in December 2011.
Adamant he was faithful, Russell told Esquire magazine: “When I’m in a relationship I’m diligently monogamous and stick to the principles agreed on within that relationship. You’ve got to, I think.
“But it’s going to be hard if I go into a monogamous relationship.
“I live a life where I have a lot of freedom, so if I meet someone and I go, ‘Right let’s be monogamous,’ that’s a f****** change.
“But I tried it and I loved it.”
Explaining the reasons behind their split, he added: “Some of it’s the fame, but I think getting married is… you’ve got a whole other person that you’ve got to make as important as you.
“It’s just hard isn’t it? She’s got a lot of options, I’ve got a lot of options, so you’ve got to really, really want it (to make marriage work).”
This is true Russell my dear… But clearly, Katie didn’t want it…(Ouch!)

I hear the Rolling Stones are planning to pull in a string of top female vocalists for their July 6 show in London’s Hyde Park this summer with superstar singer Adele at the top of Mick Jagger’s wish list.
A source said the wheels are in motion to make Adele the big-name guest on the bill — if she can be persuaded to appear.
The source said: “The Stones would love to get Adele on with them. It would be a massive coup, even for them, because she’s been a bit reclusive since her son Angelo James was born.
“She is the name they want to announce as their special guest — and their invite should be special enough to get her out on stage.
“At the minute it’s 50/50 that she’ll do it, but Mick is quietly confident he can pull it off. They want to make the Hyde Park shows a highlight of their tour, and her appearing would make it really special.”
If the band can secure Adele, Mick hinted he may dust off his billowing white frock he worn to the last Stones Hyde Park gig 44 years ago, saying: “You never know. I can still get into it. I can still just about get into the zippers. I tend to choose my dresses at the last minute.”
The Stones have made it a tradition to bring a female vocalist on stage during their latest tour.
The source added: “The group think female performers are a great complement for Mick ever since Florence Welch got on stage with them at London’s O2 Arena last year for Gimme Shelter.”
Other chart-topping stars lined up by Mick to appear with the band are Lady Gaga, Paloma Faith and Florence Welch. Oo-er… Not to be missed!

Leilani Dowding makes a fashion boob as she exposes her bare breast (inset pic) in a low-cut shirt on her way to a plastic surgeon.
The former Page 3 girl was spotted arriving at a top plastic and anti-ageing surgery in Los Angeles when she was caught out by a gust of wind.
The breeze blew open her floral Alexander McQueen blouse, revealing her nipple.
She teamed the top with a pair of denim hot pants and orange peep-toe heels, flashing a lot of leg as she chatted on the phone.
Leilani, 33, recently told pals she was no longer happy with the size of her chest, and that she missed her Page 3 boobs.
She told a friend: “I miss my cleavage!”
The source added: “Leilani told me she felt she was as flat as a Cheeky Girl these days.”
The brunette has previously denied using cosmetic surgery, claiming she uses natural methods to stay in tip-top shape.
She told The Sun in February: “I have always been a health nut.
“I haven’t gone out partying until the crack of dawn like some models have.
“Though I’m no saint, I have always looked after myself with good diet and exercise.
“That’s why I can still do this type of modelling and get away with it. I’m an all-natural, no-surgery girl!”
Could she be backtracking on her statement?! Hmm…

Sin City’s mega-tycoon Steve Wynn is lining up a huge-money deal to lure David Beckham and Gordon Ramsey into a joint venture at his hotel there.
The businessman owns the Wynn resort — one of the most luxurious hotels in Vegas — and has his heart set on opening a sports bar and grill on the complex with the British stars.
Gordon already owns three places on The Strip — his BurGR joint at Planet Hollywood, his steak house at Paris and his Pub & Grill at Caesars Palace.
I’m told, Steve has wanted the chef to join forces with him for years, then after Becks announced his retirement from footie, he floated the idea of an eatery endorsed by both of them to his Vegas team.
Gordon and David are already going into the food business together here in the UK — their first joint restaurant, Union Street Cafe, is slated to open near London’s Borough Market in September.
A source said: “The Strip has never seen such fierce competition for food, but Gordon’s places are full seven nights a week. He’s one of the best chefs in the world, so it’s only natural that Steve feels he should have a place in his hotel as it’s the most luxurious on The Strip.
“When you add David Beckham’s global status into the mix it has the potential to be the most talked about restaurant in Vegas.
“Steve Wynn hasn’t cared about money since he became a billionaire after rejuvenating The Strip in the early Nineties.
“His ambition is quite simply to have the best hotels in the world. He spent more than £2billion doing that with the Wynn Resort and thinks Gordon and David can make it even better.”
Sounds like a “Wynn-er” to me!

Director Sam Mendes has been tipped to take on the next James Bond film according to my spies in Tinseltown– even though reports suggest he has dismissed the idea.
The British film-maker was behind Skyfall the most successful Bond movie ever, which premiered last year and went on to gross more than $1Billion worldwide at the box office.
Mendes, 47, had previously said the idea of directing the next 007 flick made him feel “physically ill”.
But now talks have begun that put him back in the frame with Bond producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.
They are prepared to wait until he has completed his theatre commitments so he can direct the next instalment of the Bond franchise.
Mendes is expected to make a deal to start production next year.
It comes after Mendes dismissed rumours he would return in an Empire magazine interview in March.
He said at the time: “It has been a very difficult decision not to accept Michael and Barbara’s very generous offer to direct the next Bond movie.
“Directing Skyfall was one of the best experiences of my professional life, but I have theatre and other commitments, including productions of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory and King Lear, that need my complete focus over the next year and beyond.”
Neither MGM nor Sony were available for comment. I bet Daniel Craig is well pleased!

Daniel Radcliffe is a self confessed addict!
Well, sort of… the Hollywood actor has revealed his daily after-work ritual — catching up on the hit BBC1 series, Pointless!
During a ‘My Playlist’ feature’, Daniel told Radio One: “The first thing I do when I get home, this may sound pretty dull – but you know I’m that kind of guy – is catch up on Pointless.
“I’m a big Pointless fan and there’s a lot of that to watch.”
The late afternoon quiz show, hosted by Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman, has become a cult hit and has consistently strong ratings.
Daniel isn’t the first celeb to reveal his love for the show — Ricky Gervais has also told of his obsession with ‘Pointless’.
A peak of 4.3million viewers tuned in to the show yesterday. Well, at least this is a healthy addiction… Could have been worse!
