Actress Amy Huberman says it will be "strange" not cheering on hubby Brian O'Driscoll from the sidelines at this year's Rugby World Cup.

The mum-of-two used to be a regular fixture in the stands before Brian stopped playing, travelling around the world to cheer on her other half as he battled it out on the field.

"Brian will be over there and I'll be watching the Ireland games," she told the Diary.

"But it'll be strange this time not being there. Fingers crossed we'll do great."

Meanwhile, the 35-year-old has finished writing the screenplay for her movie Bolt which is based on her second book, I Wished for You. "It's all done, which is really exciting," she said.


Amy recently said she would love to star in the film, which is "a female-led romantic comedy about a woman who has commitment issues".

While she has been focused on writing over the past few months, Amy was recently spotted jetting abroad for filming. She will next appear in children's movie Ghosthunters.

The style icon also recently launched the new collection of Bourbon footwear, which features flats, courts and her signature shoe boots.

Amy was speaking at the Irish premiere of new comedy, Trainwreck, held in association with the Dublin International Film Festival.

Next year's festival will run from February 18 to 28.

Marissa for Teen Vogue

Beauty aficionado Marissa Carter is having quite the moment; not only are her products being endorsed by reality star Kylie Jenner but she has also been featured in Teen Vogue.

The Cocoa Brown tan creator gave advice to readers on her new craze called "tontouring".

The beauty phenomenon - created by Carter - is a "new way to sculpt and accentuate the face using fake tan" which only has to be done once per week.

With top US retailers like Target, Rickey's NYC and now Penneys stocking her wares, it's onwards and upwards for the beauty maestro.

Musical night out

Mary Byrne, Sue Collins, Niamh Kavanagh and Linda Nolan are starring in Menopause: the Musical, a "hilarious celebration of women and the change".

The show will be in Dublin for two nights only on October 13 and 14 at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre before it goes on tour around the country.
