She rarely does television but what she’s done has been stellar and includes Angels in America, Holocaust, and Big Little Lies 2.

This amazing career that has resulted in a record 21 Academy Award nominations (three wins) as well as three Emmys, nine Golden Gloibes, two BAFTAS, two SAG awards, and all the important honorary awards including AFI Life Achievement Award in 2004, Gala Tribute from the Film Society of Lincoln Center in 2008, and Kennedy Center Honor in 2011 for her contribution to American culture, through performing arts.

Morning Man Classic: Kris Kristofferson!

It’s hard to believe that singer-actor Kris Kristofferson turns 85 today.

When I saw the most vividly from the 1986 remake of A Star is Born opposite Barbra Streisand. He was sexy and wonderful in the role of John Norman Howard and the movie came at a time when he had branched out from being a successful singer-songwriter (Me and Bobby McGee, Help Me Make it Through the Night) to actor.

His other movies included Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore, Blume in Love, Heaven’s Gate, Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, Hanover Street, Semi-Tough, the Blade trilogy, Lonestar, Payback, and more recently Joyful Noise with Dolly Parton.

In 1985, Kristofferson joined fellow country artists Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash in forming the country music supergroup The Highwaymen and in 2004, he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

He is the father of eight children including five with current wife Lisa. His second wife was singer Rita Coolidge with whom he has a daughter.

Raiders player Carl Nassib makes history as first active NFL pro to come out publicly as a gay man

Congratulations to Carl Nassib who made history today as the first active NFL player to come out publicly as a gay man.

He said in an Instagram video today: “I just wanted to take a quick moment to say that I’m gay. I’ve been meaning to do this for a while now, but I finally feel comfortable enough to get it off my chest. I really have the best life. I’ve got the best family, friends and job a guy can ask for. I’m a pretty private person, so I hope you guys know that I’m really not doing this for attention. I just think that representation and visibility are so important. I actually hope that like one day, videos like this and the whole coming out process are just not necessary. But until then I’m going to do my best and my part to cultivate a culture that’s accepting and compassionate.

He said of his teammates and coaches: “I would not have been able to do this without them. From the jump, I was greeted with the utmost respect and acceptance. I truly love my life and cannot understand why I have been blessed this much. I feel especially thankful to have had so much support when many who came before — and many even now — do not.”

Nassib is entering his sixth season in the league this fall and his second with the Raiders, who signed him to a three year, $25 million deal before last season. The 28-year-old also pledged a $100,000 donation to the Trevor Project, an organization dedicated to helping LGBTQ youth.

Today’s Morning Man: Ryan Serhant!

I was not really familiar with Ryan Serhant because I don’t think I’ve seen more than part of an episode of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing New York or its spinoff Sell it Like Serhant.

But I was watching an episode of Watch What Happens Live the other day and Ryan was one of the guests and I found him sorta dreamy.

The 36 year old runs his own New York real estate firm SERHANT which, according the Wikipedia, is one of the most active real estate companies in the United States, using their large social media exposure of over 3.6 million followers to sell properties such as the $33 million Penthouse at ARTE Surfside in Miami and 809 Madison Avenue in New York for $69 million.

He is currently starring in his 9th season of MDLNY.

Greg Louganis statement on split from Johnny Chaillot: “Thanks to everyone who has supported and nurtured us all of these years”

Greg Louganis and Johnny Chaillot, who have been married for eight years, are getting a divorce. Greg, winner of four Olympic Gold Medals in diving, has released this statement: “At this time, Johnny and I wish to share that we are respectfully and mutually ending our marriage. Marriage among all couples is more often than not challenging, and, particularly during #pridemonth, it’s important that we say how grateful we were to be among the first gay couples to have the privilege to marry legally, and face these challenges so many do. It’s something not so long ago that many of us were certain would never happen. And so, we make this announcement with that in mind, and to ask for the respect and privacy of anyone heading down this new road we must embrace. Thanks to everyone who has supported and nurtured us all of these years.”
