Actress Nicola Peltz Beckham’s marriage to nepo baby Brooklyn Beckham has sparked controversy over the years. With rumors of arguments and Nicola failing to get along with Brooklyn’s famous parents – former athlete David Beckham and former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham – it seems that the young couple can’t catch a break. So, Nicola has finally decided to lean into the rumors and revealed that she cut Brooklyn from her newest movie.

The Scene That We’ll Never See

Nicola does it all in the movie Lola – the actress writes, directs, and stars in the movie, making the film her directorial debut. Like many other directors, Nicola wanted to give a little wink to the audience by having her significant other give a cameo appearance. However, she ended up cutting her husband, Brooklyn’s scene, which she jokes he’s “actually really upset” about. The actress explained, “He had one line, ‘Hi,’ but he kept saying it in a British accent and he was staring directly into the camera.” She admitted that they eventually had to give up and move on with filming.

A Supportive Family

Despite Nicola cutting Brooklyn’s acting career short, she clarified that he was still extremely supportive of her film. She said, “I couldn’t have done any of this without him because he was such a massive support to me every day on set which I’m so appreciative of.” If it’s any consolation to Brooklyn, he wasn’t the only loved one Nicola cut from the film. Her brother, Will Peltz, does appear in the movie, but his role is much smaller than one might think. Nicola explained, “I wanted my brother to have a much bigger part, but the thing is, to anyone who might not know he’s my brother they might be thinking to themselves, ‘Wait, why didn’t she end up with that guy? That guy seems great and he’s so handsome.’ But, like, okay, that would not work out.”

Sorry, gentlemen, but we have to agree with Nicola, those were both good calls.

Here’s How to Get Rid of Bruised Apples in a Delicious Way

After every season, there are always a few apples rolling around the back of the fruit drawer. Gradually, those lonely fruits get mealy and bruised. Then there comes a time when you don’t know what to do with them anymore, and one day they get thrown in the trash can. But not anymore! Toss your left-alone bruised apples in a slow cooker with a few ingredients and whip up your own homemade apple butter to impress your guests the next time.

Apple Butter

There’s no butter in apple butter. It’s all about the condiment’s buttery consistency and smooth texture, which comes from a long and slow-cooking process. It should be thicker and more textured than applesauce. It’s one of the greatest ways to use up old and bruised apples. Obviously, you can use fresh apples too, but it really won’t make any difference in the end! Just don’t use ones with excessive bruises or molds, and you’re good to go.

The Benefits

This rich velvety spread is super delicious, full of nutrients, and highly versatile. To enjoy apple butter at its best, spread it on a slice of buttered toast or spoon it warm over a scoop of vanilla ice cream. You can add it to your fall charcuterie board too, as apple butter pairs beautifully with sharp cheddar. Also, it is incredibly easy to make at home. You don’t even need to peel the apples! And in that way, you’ll be keeping the fiber and nutrients more intact. Here’s the recipe to make no-peel apple butter easily at home.


● Washed and cored apples, 6 lb. (About 18 medium-sized)

● Brown sugar (1 cup)

● Lemon juice, 2 tsp.

● Ground allspice, ¾ tsp.

● Ground cinnamon, ½ tsp.

● Ground nutmeg, ½ tsp.

● Vanilla, 1 tsp. (Optional)


● First, cut the thoroughly washed and cored apples into wedges. Place them in a large crock pot with the remaining ingredients.

● Cover the pot and let the fruits caramelize on high flame for 4 hours. Don’t stir or mix.

● Then put the flame off and remove the lid. Mash the apples gently with a masher. Blend until smooth using a hand blender.

● Pour the blended mix back into the slow cooker. This time cover it slightly ajar. Cook again for 4-5 hours, and keep mixing every hour, until thick and smooth. Turn the heat off.

● Let the cooked mixture cool and store it in glass jars. You can preserve homemade apple butter in the fridge for a month. Use sterilized jars if you want them to last longer.
