Halle Berry, Olivier Martinez expecting

LOS ANGELES

Halle Berry is pregnant.

A representative for the 46-year-old actress confirms that Berry and her fiance, Olivier Martinez, are expecting their first child together.

Publicist Meredith O’Sullivan Wasson offered no other details.

Berry and Martinez announced their engagement last year. Berry has a daughter with her ex-boyfriend, Gabriel Aubry. The two settled their custody battle over the 5-year-old in November.

This is the first child for Martinez.

January Jones: Fashion criticism ‘makes me laugh’

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.

AMC’s “Mad Men” drama may garner attention for bringing back ’60s glamour, but January Jones, known for her daring red carpet looks, says she doesn’t care what critics think of her personal style.

“I think that fashion is an art,” the 35-year-old actress, who has topped many best- and worst-dressed lists, said in a recent interview. “It’s a fun way to express yourself. ... And I sort of like not pleasing people a bit.”

Take, for example, the Prabal Gurung gown she wore to this year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards. Critics both praised and criticized the bold black-and-white structured ensemble.

“It makes me laugh when the ‘Fashion Police’ hate what I wear,” Jones said. “I loved my whole look that night. It was really fun. And I just like people looking at me like I was crazy.”

Another daring style that left critics divided: her dramatic 2012 Emmys look. Jones made a statement with a severe slicked-back hairdo, smoky cat eyes and a semisheer black organza number by Zac Posen.

Jones returns as steely housewife Betty Francis, ex-wife of Madison Avenue adman Don Draper, when the new season of “Mad Men” premieres Sunday at 9 p.m.

And whether you love or hate her fashion choices, Jones welcomes the attention.

“That’s good, I embrace it,” she said of being considered a style icon. “I love fashion so much, and I keep trying to push the envelope and keep doing things that are fun for me, different.”

Craig, Weisz to star in ‘Betrayal’ on Broadway

NEW YORK

Real-life husband and wife Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz are to play an adulterous stage couple in a Broadway production this fall of Harold Pinter’s “Betrayal,” the latest blast of high-beam celebrities to be lured to Times Square.

Weisz will make her Broadway debut in Pinter’s 1978 study in deception, which charts an extramarital affair in reverse.

Her character, Emma, is married to Craig’s Robert, but is having an affair with Jerry, played by rising star Rafe Spall.

James Bond star Craig last appeared on Broadway in 2009 in “A Steady Rain,” where he received positive notices opposite Hugh Jackman even though the play itself did not.

HBO is making Ephron documentary

NEW YORK

Nora Ephron will be the subject of an HBO documentary being made by one of her sons, journalist Jacob Bernstein.

The network said Friday that the project, titled “Everything is Copy,” will also have Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter as executive producer.

Ephron died at age 71 last year. She was the writer behind films “When Harry Met Sally,” “You’ve Got Mail” and “Sleepless in Seattle.” Her last project is the current Broadway play about journalist Mike McAlary, with Tom Hanks in the starring role.

The documentary’s title is a reference to Ephron’s feeling that all of life’s experiences provide fodder for a writer.

The documentary project was first reported in the Hollywood Reporter.
