Celebrating two-time Oscar winner Sally Field’s 72nd birthday with a trip down on-screen memory lane

We like her, we reeeeeeeaaaallly like her. From Gidget to Norma Rae to Mary Todd Lincoln, Sally Field’s acting career has been one for the ages.

Hard to believe, but the actress who has been a star as long as Cher and Barbra Streisand turns 72 today.

She’s had an astounding career that started out cute and perky on Gidget and The Flying Nun before she won her first Emmy for Sybil. Then had a Burt Reynolds phase (Smokey and the Bandit, Hooper, The End) before winning best actress Oscars for Norma Rae and Places in the Heart and earning another Oscar nod in recent years for Lincoln.

Along the way there have been two more Emmys for ER and Brothers & Sisters, respectively, and memorable roles in such films as Steel Magnolias, Soapdish, Murphy’s Romance, Punchline, Forrest Gump , the Spider-Man franchise during the Andrew Garfield years and 2016′s terrific My Name is Doris..

As if I didn’t already love her enough for her acting, Sally has shown us what a terrific mom she is. The youngest of her three sons, Sam Greisman, came out publicly as gay and Sally has been an excellent example of how a parent can handle this.

‘It’s important to have a parent speak about raising a magnificent, proud, intelligent, funny, lovable, sexy gay son,’ Sally told Oprah Winfrey in 2015. ‘There are so many parents who are frightened of that and who don’t embrace their children as they struggle. Those children are struggling to embrace who they are, who nature — what nature intended them to be.’

Let’s celebrate sensational Sally with some of her great scenes:

Tuesday Morning Man: André Silva!

On this important Election Day in the US, here’s some major eye candy to reward you with for casting your ballot!

Say hello to dreamy soccer pro Andre Silva from Portugal who turns 23 today.

He plays as a striker for Spanish club Sevilla FC on loan from A.C. Milan, and the Portugal national team.

i’m so grateful i got to launch today’s canvas for emily skopov! she is running for state representative in pennsylvania’s 28th district and is an incredible example of democracy in action. an everyday citizen compelled to run for office because of the restrictive discriminatory and self-serving policies of the old guard straight white men who have clung to power for far too long. she is within striking distance of defeating her opponent on tuesday and i couldn’t be more excited to support her and all that she represents – including women’s rights – lbtq rights – education – and important governance reform such as #fairmaps GET UP!

SNL’s Kate McKinnon takes on Laura Ingraham

On the cold opening of last night’s Saturday Night Live, Kate McKinnon portrayed Fox News host Laura Ingraham in a fake episode of Ingraham Angle.

In it, she talks to Judge Jeanine Pirro (Cecily Strong) and David Clarke (Kenan Thompson) about a caravan of illegal immigrants headed for the U.S. border.


Russian hunk Karen Khachanov upsets world number one Novak Djokovic to win Paris Open

Tennis has a new star – and boy is he good lookin!

Russia’s Karen Khachanov defeated world number one Novak Djokovic to win his first Masters 1000 title at the Paris Masters.

The 22-year-old beat Djokovic 7-5 6-4 in one hour and 37 minutes to end the Serb’s 22-match unbeaten run.

“It means the world to me,” said world number 18 Khachanov will rise to world number 11 on Monday. “It’s one of the biggest titles in my career so far. I couldn’t be happier to end the season like this, to win against Novak Djokovic, the number one in the world.”


Morning Man Classic: Kin Shriner! General Hospital’s Luke and Laura became the most celebrated couple in soap opera history, Laura (Genie Francis) had been married to Scotty Baldwin who was played by the adorable Kin Shriner.

Sure Luke (Tony Geary) was more exciting, but Scotty was a sweetheart and the actor who played him was an early crush of mine.

Looking back at some of these photos from the early 80s, I think it’s easy to see why!

Kin, who is now 64, appeared as Scotty off and on from 1977 through today and also played the role on the spinoff soap Port Charles.

His twin brother is Will Shriner, also an actor.

General Hospital is his most famous role but not his only one. He left the show for a while to join the cast of the NBC soap Texas and during other breaks from the show he was a regular on The Bold and the Beautiful, As the World Turns and a short-lived soap called Rituals.

He also played Harrison Bartlett on The Young and the Restless in 2004 and later returned to the show to fill in for Ted Shackleford as Jeffrey Bardwell.

Read Alexandra Billings’ beautiful tribute to Larry Kramer: “He is one of our great leaders”

View this post on Instagram

The first time we met we sat at a table and talked for almost 4 hours. We remembered and we reminisced. We honored those that we had lost and we celebrated those that remained. We drank tea and we laughed. We held each other. And we wept. We wept deep and hard and for a very long time. The first time we met we saw each other in each other‘s eyes. It was over two decades ago and the two of us have been fighting a disease that took every one of our friends and twisted their bodies and maligned their spirits and left them in a pile of blackness covered in a sheet of bloody history. He and I remember it well because we were there and we bore witness. To the horror of it all and strangely to the heroics as well. The first time Larry and I met was the spark of a love that is powerful and ever life-changing. And I am better for it. And I am here because of him. Because of his grit and determination and tenacity and humor and wit and Grace and intelligence. He is one of our great leaders. And he is one of my great friends. And I am truly blessed. The very first time Larry and I met, I fell in love. And I have been in love ever since. #transrightsarehumanrights #lgbtpride #heroes #queericon #resist #lockhimup #trumpisatraitor #vote
