Rumors swirl around Yang

学习词组:Fabricated out of thin air

Yang Mi,24,China

Just when people thought that the actress and her co-star in The Palace(《宫》),Feng Shaofeng, were really an item, another story comes out stating that they are not. A rumor broke out last week on the Internet that Yang's real boyfriend is one of her classmates at Beijing Film Academy and they have been living together. The source when even further, saying the classmate, named Hua Han, comes from a very rich family which keeps a low profile. But Yang's manager has denied the rumor, saying,"It is completely fabricated out of thin air."

Fabricated out of thin air指事情是“莫须有的,无中生有的”。Fabricated和out of thin air单独使用时,也都表示“无中生有”。Out of thin air的近义表达有out of nowhere, out of nothing。杨幂到底是不是又“被男友”了呢?

 

学习词汇:Demeaning

Natalie Portman, 29, Israel/US

The Oscar-winning star was slammed by her dance double in Black Swan, American Ballet Theater dacer Sarah Lane. Lane told Entertainment Weekly she was the victim of a cover-up designed to help Portman's Oscar chances."Of the full body shots, I would say that 5 percent are Natalie. All the other shots are me. It is demeaning to the profession and also to me,"Lane said. Her claim came after Black Swan's choreographer Benjamin Millepied, who is engaged to Portman, told the Los Angeles Times last week that "Lane just did the footwork(步法) and the fouettes(法语,芭蕾舞中单腿快速转身) and one diagonal(斜的) phrase(一些列舞蹈动作) in the studio". The studio behind the movie has refuted Lane's claims.

Demeaning指“(行为)侮辱人的,有损人格尊严的”,近义词有humiliating, humbling。到底是替身演员不被尊重,还是雷恩抹黑波特曼呢?
