World champion diver Tom Daley and Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black are currently on their honeymoon. Daley posted their official wedding video earlier today. He writes: ‘Our honeymoon feels like the perfect time to finally share our magical day. We know our wedding was only possible thanks to the brave work of countless people for generations before us, so in that tradition, we will donate any revenue from this video to the “LGBT+ Switchboard” and “It Gets Better” in hopes of making things even better for future generations.’ Well said Tom!!!
Rita Moreno is one of the few performers to have WON all four major annual American entertainment awards – an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony – and pointed out to me last year that she is a legitimate EGOT because none of her awards are honorary. Not even Barbra Streisand or Liza Minnelli can say that!
Of course she’s best known for West Side Story, The King and I, The Ritz and Singin’ In the Rain on film) but as a kid I only knew her as that lady from The Electric Company. She’s still going strong as the grandma on the reboot of One Day at a Time.
This handsome guy has been a big star since 1971′s The Last Picture Show and he’s been going strong ever since.
He is, of course, Jeff Bridges and I really developed a crush on him after seeing him in Against All Odds.
I don’t think he’s ever been so sexy in a movie and he’s been plenty sexy in lots of them including Jagged Edge, Starman and The Fabulous Baker Boys.
What is so impressive about Jeff is how he has lasted so long as an A-List actor in major films scoring Oscar nominations f0r The Last Picture Show and Thunderbolt and Lightfoot in the 1970s, Starman in 1985, and The Contender in 2001.
On his fifth nomination, for Crazy Heart in 2009, he finally won an Oscar. The next year, he was nominated again for True Grit.
About a decade ago, I did a cover story on Jeff for Orange Coast Magazine. It was a telephone interview that began in his hotel after he had spent the day filming The Door in the Floor that he had to cut short. He called me back the next morning while he was being driven back to the set.
It was a wonderful conversation about his family, his movies and his art.
Not long after, I got invited to a party in Santa Monica celebrating the publication of his book of photographs. I went up to Jeff to say hello and reminded him of our interview.
If anyone were ripe for parody, I’d have to say it is White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Enjoy the brilliant Fortune Feimster as Sanders being interviewed by Chelsea Handler. Funny stuff.
Today is Aussie dreamboat Chris Hemsworth’s 34th birthday. I know he’s best known as Thor in the Avengers films but all my favorite things he’s done are a far cry from those films. Have loved his recent supporting roles in a pair of comedy remakes: Ghostbusters and Vacation and if you haven’t seen it, check him out as the late race car driver James Hunt in 2013′s biopic Rush. Chris has also played George Kirk in the Star Trek movies and is set to appear in a future installment in the works. He;s already filmed to more movies as Thor:Avengers: Infinity War and Thor:Ragnarok.
