Sorry for the one day delay of STARDUST News Bytes this week guys! I usually do these on Friday,but I have had kind of a hectic week so without further ado, here are some of the top entertainment news headlines from around the world this week...just in case you missed it!

Guy Sebastian gears up for Eurovision
Guy Sebastian will attempt to create history in the early hours of Sunday morning, Australian time. He is Australia's first ever entry into the Eurovision Song Contest. Sebastian will perform his song, Tonight Again, which is already creating a buzz in Eurovision's host city, Vienna this year. The former Australian Idol winner will perform 12th on Eurovision night, just before the interval. "There's been such a huge build-up, numerous run throughs and rehearsals, and as a performer you just build it up and build it up and you just want to get it done so you can breathe a sigh of relief" Sebastian said.

Harry Potter star Matthew Lewis strips down for magazine photo shoot
Harry Potter star Matthew Lewis, who played the role of Neville Longbottom on the successful film franchise caused a stir when a photo surfaced of him on Twitter on the front cover of British gay magazine, Attitude. The 25-year-old actor stripped down to show fans his six pack and more for the photo shoot. Lewis's magazine cover even caught the attention of J.K. Rowling, and she shared her thoughts on social media. "Not as bad as watching Dan in Equus, but close. Warn me next time, for God's sake" Rowling tweeted. Lewis responded to the Harry Potter author's remarks "Well this is awkward. Sorry Jo" he tweeted back.

Olsen twins not returning for Full House reboot
Former Full House stars, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who both shared the role of the youngest Tanner child, Michelle have confirmed that they will not be taking part in Netflix's revival of the successful ABC sitcom. The Olsen twins participation in the new series has been in question ever since Netflix announced that it was reviving the beloved comedy in April. "We just found out about it today. I guess we're going to talk to the creators and see what's happening. I'm shocked I haven't heard from John Stamos" Mary-Kate said in an interview last month. This prompted the Olsen twins co-star, John Stamos, who played the role of Uncle Jesse on the show to call bluff on the Olsen's claim that they knew nothing about the revival. "I call bulls***" he tweeted, which has now been deleted. Stamos took to Twitter again on Friday to comment on the Olsen twins decision not to return. "#heartbroken. I understand they're in a different place now and I wish them the best" he tweeted.

Gigi Hadid turns heads at Cannes film festival
American model, Gigi Hadid caught the attention of many people at the amfAR Cinema Against Aids Gala in Cannes this week. The 20-year-old showed up in a boob-bearing white Tom Ford gown. The dress was complete with a thigh high slit. Hadid arrived to the event solo and seemed more than happy to spend it with her good friend, Kendall Jenner. The Cannes film festival was attended by quite a few Hollywood stars, including Sienna Miller, Dita Von Teese, Paris Hilton and Jake Gyllenhaal. 

Maggie Gyllenhaal rejected for film role for being too old
Maggie Gyllenhaal recently struggled to land the role of a lover to an older man in a film because she's in her late 30s. The actress didn't reveal the name of the movie she wasn't chosen for, but she did admit being denied the part made her feel a range of emotions. "There are things that are really disappointing about being an actress in Hollywood all the time. I'm 37 and I was recently told I was too old to play the lover of a man who was 55. It was astonishing to me. It made me feel bad, and then it made me feel angry and then it made me laugh. I don't feel despairing at all, and I'm more looking with hope for something fascinating" Gyllenhaal told TheWrap Magazine.
