Haven't we all at some point in time fantasized about stepping through a cinema/TV screen and into the world of our favourite movies and television shows? I certainly have!

With its modern, urban setting and stunning harbour, it is easy to see why Sydney leads the way as an ideal and versatile shooting destination. Movies shot here have been set in New York (Godzilla: Final Wars, Kangaroo Jack), Chicago (The Matrix and sequels), London (Birthday Girl), Seville (Mission Impossible 2), Bombay (Holy Smoke), Darwin (Australia), Myanmar (Stealth), Mars (Red Planet) and the fictitious city of Metropolis (Superman Returns, Babe: Pig in the City).

Whether popular landmarks or off the beaten track locations that are often hard to find, you can now explore Sydney in a fun and unique way with the SYDNEY ON SCREEN walking guides. Catering to Sydneysiders as much as visitors, the guides have something to offer everyone, from history, architecture and movie buffs to nature lovers.

See where productions such as Superman Returns, The Matrix and sequels, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Candy, Mission Impossible 2, Mao's Last Dancer, Babe: Pig in the City, Kangaroo Jack, The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, Muriel's Wedding, The Bold and the Beautiful, Oprah's Ultimate Australian Adventure and many more were filmed.

Maps and up-to-date information on Sydney's attractions are provided to help you plan your walk. Pick and choose from the suggested itinerary to see as little or as much of the city as you like.

Michelle Bridges gives Who Magazine tell-all on Commando 'affair'

Amy Harris, The Daily Telegraph, reports

Just when you thought the Michelle Bridges/Commando soap opera couldn't get any more tedious.

Prepare for another round of non-admission/denials tomorrow from Michelle Bridges who Confidential hears sat down with Who Magazine this week for a 'tell-all' interview.

Only we hear it isn't so much of a 'tell-all' as a whole new series of ways to admit to something while not admitting anything (still with us?).

Confidential understands the line this time from the recently separated Biggest Loser trainer is that she is 'ready to return to dating' while not committing to a relationship with Steve 'The Commando' Willis - her social handbag and rumoured lover of the past few weeks.

It's understood Bridges, who is believed to have racked up a personal fortune of around $17 million on the back of her wildly successful online weight-loss 'challenge', will also undertake a round of radio interviews tomorrow morning to shill the for the mag.

Perhaps these may provide little to no insight on the "is-it-or-isn't-it fictional' romance.

While the two TV trainers from the The Biggest Loser seem to be happy to keep people guessing (while enjoying some new-found media attention), there is another rumoured magazine tell-all in the works which may have a little more meat on the bone.

Confidential hears Woman's Day is scrambling to get up a sit-down with Bridges' ex-husband ... though it's not the one you think.

Rather than extracting a tell-all from Bridge's estranged husband of nine years Bill Moore, with whom she is understood to be on very amicable terms, it's understood the mag is poised to publish an interview with a little-known first husband to whom she was married briefly during her early 20s.

Perhaps he might shed some light on the current brouhaha though we learned not to hold our collective breath.
