NEWS OF THE WEEK: Taika Waititi dodges Rita Ora engagement question during interview

It was reported last week that the Thor: Ragnarok director was engaged to marry his pop star girlfriend and he was asked to address the speculation during a joint interview with his Lightyear co-star Chris Evans on U.K. TV show This Morning on Monday. Towards the end of the chat, presenter Phillip Schofield coyly wondered if more congratulations were in order after wishing Chris a happy birthday and mentioned "wedding bells", to which Taika changed the subject and joked, "You can congratulate me, it's (my birthday) in August! Let's talk about my birthday.".
