Damon Gameau goes Super Size on the sweet stuff in shocking sugar experiment
IT’S been 10 years since Morgan Spurlock existed on just McDonald’s for a month in the groundbreaking film, Super Size Me.
Now our waistlines face a new threat, and another guinea pig has undergone some risky self-experimentation to try to make sense of it.
Australian TV actor and filmmaker Damon Gameau stars in That Sugar Filmwhich will air in Australian cinemas in early 2015, in which he exists on “healthy” low-fat food with a high sugar content for 60 days.
The results are more shocking than anyone could have expected.
Within three weeks, the previously healthy Damon was feeling terrible all the time, lethargic and snapping at the slightest thing.
A visit to the doctor confirmed the worst — he had the beginnings of fatty liver disease.
“I had no soft drink, chocolate, ice cream or confectionery,” Damon told Sunrise this week. “All the sugars that I was eating were found in perceived healthy foods, so low-fat yoghurts and muesli bars and cereals and fruit juices, sports drinks … these kind of things that often parents would give their kids thinking they’re doing the right thing.”
Remember the stunning headdress Isabel wore in the ‘Bird On The Buffalo’ music video a few years ago? That piece was designed by MelleSan, an independent French designer who makes all her own pieces. Isabel loved her work so much, she has now joined forces with MelleSan to create a collection of crystal headpieces. Isabel has “always collected gemstones and cherish them”, plus, part of the proceeds from sales will be donated to the Australian Marine Conservation Society, so you can see why she wanted to get involved. Read the press release and finds the relevant links to see/buy from the collection below:
Isabel Lucas x MelleSan CAPSULE COLLECTION
Discover Isabel Lucas x MELLESAN Limited Edition Collection of Natural Stones Headpieces.
Actress Isabel Lucas is collaborating with MELLESAN on a capsule collection of headpieces.
After having beautifully worn headpieces from the brand, the actress and the brand have kept a faithful connection and decided to think and work on a selection of creations together.
Using natural gemstones as the main material, such as Amethyst, Rainbow Moonstone and Rose Quartz, these mineral, delicate and precious jewels can be worn in an aerial or in a more structured way as a crown placed on the forehead. The creations offer those wearing them, the freedom to believe in the therapeutic and protective properties and magic conferred on these stones.

As reported previously, Isabel is the new face of Australian jewellry brand Linneys 2014 ‘Cote D’Azur’ campaign. The campaign was launched in late November, and we now have lots of photos from it! Added to the Gallery are the photoshoot pictures, a behind the scenes shot, screencaps of Isabel from the official Linneys website, and captures from the campaign catalogue. Isabel looks so glamourous and confident!
Australian actress Isabel Lucas has been selected as ambassador for the new range, which will officially launch on Wednesday 27 November at an invitation-only event in Sydney.
Linney said Lucas had a natural beauty and elegance that perfectly suited the Cote d’Azur collection.
“Isabel is a well known Australian talent, especially with a younger demographic, so as well as being a beautiful model for the new collection she will also hopefully bring new clients to the Linneys brand as it continues to grow,” he explained.
In addition to the main collection, Lucas and the jewellery retailer have collaborated to create a piece that will be auctioned to raise funds for the World Wildlife Fund. The pendant features 18-carat rose gold, an Australian South Sea pearl and diamonds valued at more than $3,000.
This is not the first time Linneys has worked with a celebrity in order to promote its collections. The 2013 Gardens of Eden range was fronted by Belgian Victoria’s Secret model Jessica Van Der Steen and it has also used Australian personalities such as Jessica Marais, Melissa George, Jason Dundas and Ernie Dingo in its marketing.
Commenting on the importance of brand ambassadors, Linney said, “Ambassadors have provided our brand with an incredible platform from which we can launch our new collections and present them to the market on a more personal level.”
A couple of months ago, Isabel spoke to The West Australian to promote Linneys. She also chatted about Knight Of Cups, and teased us about a new project she is working on! Read the full interview on our press page through the link below…
Isabel Lucas honours the Kimberley
She may be working with Hollywood hot shots Christian Bale, Natalie Portman and Cate Blanchett but Aussie actress, environmental activist and the face of luxury WA jewellery label Linneys, Isabel Lucas, is keeping her feet firmly on the ground.
The 28-year-old co-stars with the Oscar-winning trio in Knight of Cups, one of the most eagerly awaited cinematic releases of 2014 from acclaimed American auteur Terrence Malick (The Tree of Life, To the Wonder).
The tightly guarded film is said to be about a man, temptations, celebrity and excess and shot in an improvised style, without a script.
“Terrence is a man of such integrity and an incredible artist . . . it was such a magical experience and I am so grateful,” the softly spoken, Los Angeles-based Lucas gushes modestly to AAA Weekend.
“And Christian taught me so much and was very generous with me. Cate seems like such a guiding light and so conscious in so many ways . . . I really admire her. And Natalie (also starring in Thor: The Dark World opposite Lucas’ former lover Chris Hemsworth) was so lovely, really kind and sweet.”
As for her burgeoning film career, Lucas is surging ahead with three other US films due for release next year – including a thriller alongside *Nick Jonas *- and an Australian production that has her tight-lipped on the details.
“I can say I’m filming the movie in December in Sydney and I’m really excited but I’m not allowed to say what it is just yet,” she says.

Linney’s jewellery ambassador Isabel Lucas follows in the footsteps of Jessica Marais and Jason Dundas as Linney’s jewellery ambassador
The Aussie actor, a passionate environmentalist, is this year’s Linneys jewellery ambassador, following in the footsteps of Jessica Marais and Jason Dundas.
“I have been offered things but tend to turn them down if they don’t resonate with things I believe in,” she says.
“Like leather. I’m vegetarian so it’s not in line with my beliefs so I’m not going to promote something like that.”
Lucas wore a wig for the jewellery brand’s campaign shoot, having chopped her long blonde locks into a short pixie cut last month.
The 28-year-old says, unlike some of her peers like Melissa George, she’s extremely proud of her time on Home And Away.
“I have really fond memories of Home And Away,” she says.
Lucas is set to appear in upcoming drama Knight Of Cups alongside Natalie Portman and Christian Bale and the thriller Careful What You Wish For.
She starred in action blockbuster Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen alongside Shia LaBeouf, worked with iconic movie director Steven Spielberg, featured in an Ed Sheeran music video and joined actress Hayden Panettiere in a celebrity protest championing animal rights.
Despite spending the past few years mingling with Hollywood’s finest, Melbourne- born, Los Angeles- based actress Isabel Lucas was happy to don a swimsuit and brave Perth’s wet dreary weather yesterday to shoot a Mediterranean-themed campaign for leading WA jeweller Linneys.
The 28-year-old is the latest celebrity to be unveiled as the face of the brand, which previously featured Perth expats Melissa George and Jessica Marais as well as former Victoria’s Secret model Jessica van der Steen.
Posing for the decadent summer-inspired shoot, which took place at a lavish Mosman Park mansion, also marked her first visit to Perth.
“I just feel really appreciative to be here,” Lucas told AAA. “It was good timing. I wasn’t filming anything, I had a little free pocket of time.”
The former Logie-winning Home and Away star, who has dated Thor hunk Chris Hemsworth and folk-blues singer Angus Stone, is gearing up for a busy 2014 with the release of four films, including the Erik Van Looy-directed thriller The Loft, starring alongside fellow Aussie actress Rachael Taylor.
Actress Isabel Lucas on way to Perth
AUSTRALIAN actress Isabel Lucas, who will next year appear in a new flick alongside American singer songwriter Nick Jonas, is expected to jet into Perth early next week.
Melbourne-born Lucas will be in town to shoot a new campaign for local jeweller Linneys.
Lucas follows fellow actresses Melissa George and Jessica Marais in appearing in campaigns for the locally-owned jewellery company.
A spokeswoman for Linneys today confirmed Lucas would be in Perth next week.
“She is coming,” a spokesperson said.
Lucas won a Logie award in 2004 for popular new talent for her role as Tasha Andrews on Home and Away.
The former girlfriend of actor Chris Hemsworth will next year be seen in a thriller, Careful What You Wish For.
Isabel makes an appearance in Los Angeles musician SoKo’s new short film entitled ‘Monster Love’. It’s a really different and unique film, and Izzy appears briefly at about 3:10 minutes in. It also features Isabel’s good friend Hannah ‘Mermaid’ Fraser. The song playing in the film is also called Monster Love, and is by Ariel Pink. Find out more about SoKo (who I presume is a friend of Isabel’s?) at her Facebook page, and read more about this film (no mention of Isabel) at Nowness.com.
A street-stranded mermaid fends off a kitsch beast in Monster Love, a new VHS-recorded promo directed by Soko, who also stars alongside Morgan Krantz and actor, model and marine activist Hannah Fraser. Filmed in the Silverlake area of Los Angeles, the short is soundtracked by a song that shares its title, the French polymath’s brand new duet with Los Angeles’ lo-fi underground star, Ariel Pink, that will feature on her forthcoming album. “The whole thing was super DIY and felt like making a school project video with all my friends,” she says. Born in Bordeaux, Soko has starred in a number of films in her homeland, and recently attracted much acclaim in Augustine, a sensuous, César-nominated tale about a 19th-century maid consigned to an asylum. But despite her passion for acting, music remains Soko’s most cherished source of creativity. She has just released her debut album I Thought I Was an Alien in the US, which opens with the stripped-down and haunting track that also features here: “I Just Want to Make It New With You,” written with her collaborator Pink in mind. “We were friends, falling in love, but he was just out of a relationship and I—as always—was broken hearted,” the singer says of a near miss that was the catalyst for today’s film, in which she falls for the luckless protagonist. “We hadn’t shed the heaviness of our past. I imagined that after relationships, we all turn into some sort of monster, and only if we stop being monstrous will we ever be able to be real lovers again.” We got the two together to talk about recording, acting, and the logistics behind becoming a mermaid.

It was true! The reports about Isabel being in an upcoming Ed Sheeran music video have now materialised, as he has released the music video for his new single ‘Give Me Love’, and Isabel plays the ‘main character’ in it! Props to Vera for the heads-up on this. It is a dramatic and tragic story directed by Emil Nava, in which Isabel plays an angel cupid … it kind of has a Black Swan feel to it, I think. It’s an interesting video, and I’d love to hear your take on it. It was debuted just 2 hours ago, and is already taking Twitter and Tumblr by storm.
‘Give Me Love’ will be Ed Sheeran’s next UK single, and you can download the song on iTunes.
This is what Ed tweeted about his music video star:
The actress is the video is the amazing Isabel Lucas, hope you all enjoy it x

A couple of weeks ago I noticed a couple of tweets about Isabel being in the music video for Ed Sheeran’s new single:

I haven’t read or heard anything since, but be sure to be on the look-out for this! I’ll post anything else I may hear….
Check out this beautiful new video that I just found on YouTube, made by Isabel and her friends. It looks like a little personal video that she put together with friends, and I was really interested to see the end credits that say she wrote the words in the video. I’m sure I can recognise some of the footage from previous videos she made with Angus Stone. The video was made with Alice Foulcher and Jaimie Leigh Gianopoulos and features the song ‘Dead Hearts’ by Ryan Gosling’s band Dead Mans Bones.
This looks like a personal project between friends, so I won’t add it to our Filmography/Career page. I will add screencaptures from it soon, though. Watch and enjoy the video below – what are your thoughts on it?
