Cher hosting film night showcase on American TV
Cher is to get her own movie night on TV in America next month.
The Oscar winner will be the first host of Friday Night Spotlight, a brand new film showcase launching on 5 April on Turner Classic Movies.
She'll join movie expert Robert Osborne for the A Woman's World: The Defining Era of Women in Film series, which will feature a collection of 17 films handpicked by Cher to illustrate "the evolving roles of women from the late 1930s to the early 1950s".
Cher's movie choices kick off with Joan Crawford's Oscar-winning performance in Mildred Pierce.
The actress/singer says, "Working with Robert isn't like working at all! We can't stop talking about the classics and obscure golden oldies. We talk though the breaks while they move the cameras, check the lighting and do the touch-ups. I can't stop when it comes to the subject of old films, and then I get Robert going, and then the crew and director finally say, 'Cher? We have a show to do.' Robert and I laugh and become grown-ups again."
