HACKSAW RIDGE is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss [Andrew Garfield] who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.

Teresa Palmer talks healthy living, happiness and the pinky promise she’s making with her best friend
The ‘Lights Out’ actress tells us about her latest health campaign.
Aussie actress Teresa Palmer and best friend Cassandra Basile have watched a multitude of friends and family be impacted by cancer (Palmer’s mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015). And thats what drew the duo to Pink Hope, the Sydney-based preventative health organisation that focuses on breast and ovarian cancer prevention.
To celebrate “Pinky Promise,” the five year-old foundation’s latest campaign that asks best friends to openly share information about their health, Palmer — who recently announced her second pregnancy via Instagram — and Basile told Vogue about the things that keep her happy and healthy as can be, and why Pinky Promise is an initiative she’s deeply behind.

Welcome to Teresa Palmer Online, a fansite dedicated to the talented actress Teresa Palmer. As you can see, the site is under-construction and I’m currently working on the gallery. I decided to open the site early to keep up with Teresa news/articles. I decided to start a new site because back in 2011/12, I used to run a Teresa site, and I just missed it so much! I can’t wait to have the site complete to become a good resource. Thank you for visiting.

Teresa Palmer Opens Up In The Latest Issue Of ELLE Australia
The refreshingly filter-free actress and earth mother fronts our latest issue
Our February issue, fresh on the stands Monday, spruiks “fashion to fall in love with”, so who better to be gazing out from the cover than the Australian actress it’s impossible not to love, Teresa Palmer.
Dressed in Burberry lace, the Adelaide gal shines with all the star-power of a Hollywood actress with a crazy-busy film schedule that includes this month’s The Choice and Triple 9.
Inside the issue, however, it’s clear her most important role to date has been the one of motherhood. Her admission of feeling “incredibly blessed” seems an understatement as she cuddles up to her baby son Bodhi in some of the season’s most romantic fashion. The fact her cherubic son (to American filmmaker Mark Webber) would be by her side on the ELLE cover shoot was never in question.
“I’ve really made a point of saying I’m the sort of parent who wants to be with my son,” she tells us. It’s a make-or-break condition of every new role she takes on. “I’ve been so impressed and, I’ve got to say, surprised that everyone has been so welcoming.”
Right now is Palmer’s time, and the 29-year-old attributes the confidence she’s radiating to a new-found direction in her career. “I really want to portray a woman who has a real voice.” Her days of playing merely the object of a man’s affection, she says, are in the past.
From the bear hug she’s receiving from Bodhi, it’s clear she’s very much the sole object of one man’s affection. “I want to have six children,” she laughs, amid talk of plans to set up house back in South Australia. It’s been a non-stop three years for Palmer and with eight films being released this year, it’s time to bask in the success.
With her guileless mix of warmth, humour and unbridled talent (not to mention her ability to perfectly pull off bohemian looks by Céline, Zimmermann and Louis Vuitton) it’s hard to believe she’ll be able to sit still for long.
