Quentin Tarantino’s ninth feature film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, had a triumphant premiere yesterday at Cannes, where festival-goers were eager to dub it the director’s best since Pulp Fiction—which also debuted at the festival 25 years ago to the day, going on to win the Palme d’Or. The film also received a brand new trailer yesterday to mark the occasion, and it looks, sounds, and feels as Tarantino-esque as you’d imagine.
This is QT’s sweet spot, no doubt about it, as he has always had a hard-on for this period in Hollywood. He’s created Leonardo DiCaprio’s character Rick Dalton and his stunt double/best friend Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), but has them mingling with real people like Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie) and, of course, Charles Manson and his family. In an interview in Esquire, DiCaprio, Pitt, and Tarantino swap stories about making the film and all working together for the first time—Pitt was in Inglourious Basterds, while DiCaprio cut his hand, literally, in Django Unchained. Tarantino also lays out the basics of the plot…
The stories of Rick, Cliff, and Tate unfold over three days or, as Tarantino says, in three acts: February 8, February 9, and, finally, August 8—the night when Charles Manson (Damon Herriman) dispatched four members of his “Family” to the house next to Rick’s on Cielo Drive in Beverly Hills, where they found Tate, hairdresser Jay Sebring (Emile Hirsch), and three others.
I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s some twist on the whole real-life scenario awaiting us, a la the aforementioned Inglourious Basterds where Hitler and most of the Third Reich’s high command all meet their end in a movie theater in Paris. Will Rick and/or Cliff somehow intervene in the evening’s events and then take the fight to Manson down at the Spahn Ranch? I wouldn’t be surprised.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood opens in theaters nationwide on July 26.
The last time Quentin Tarantino and Brad Pitt got together for a late summer epic, the result was the Oscar winning Inglourious Basterds, and your attitude toward that film will likely guide your attitude toward their next collaboration, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. This looks to be right in line with all of the director’s work: Excess, brilliant colors, retro-kitsch, and celebrities galore. To that last point, it’s surprising how many of the film’s big names aren’t in the trailer like Al Pacino, Timothy Olyphant, Kurt Russell, Dakota Fanning, Tim Roth, Damian Lewis, Lena Dunham, and Bruce Dern.
Nevertheless, it’s unsurprising that this first tease of the film is focused on its trio of humungous stars at the center of the film: Leonardo Di Caprio and Brad Pitt as a fictional actor and his stunt double—modeled on Burt Reynolds and Hal Needham—and Margot Robbie, who is playing the very real Sharon Tate. Tate’s sister had initially come out against the film, but after meeting with Tarantino, changed her tune on the project. This leads many of us to believe that there may be some revisionist history happening in this flick, just like in Inglourious Basterds.
Manson, as played by Damon Herriman, turns up in the trailer right at the 1:09 mark with a big smile on his face, waving at the camera. There’s definitely something afoot in this flick, and we might have the lowdown soon as the film is apparently aiming for a Cannes premiere, not coincidentally just like Inglourious Basterds. You can see where I’m going with all of this.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood hits theaters across North America on July 26.
At this point, pretty much everyone knows who Gisele Bündchen is: a world-famous, former Victoria’s Secret model and wife of Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
But, before the name Bündchen became synonymous with Brady, in the early 2000s, Bündchen was once in a highly publicized relationship with actor Leonardo DiCaprio. And it was only just recently that Bündchen revealed what went wrong in that relationship and why she ultimately had to end things with DiCaprio.
During the time she was dating DiCaprio in her twenties, she revealed that despite the fact her career had taken off, she was actually in a very dark place, experiencing panic attacks and depression. Here’s what she said in her recent interview:
“When I was going through my panic attacks, I didn’t even feel like I could share with anyone. I thought maybe I don’t have the right, everybody is going through so many difficult things in the world, and I don’t have the right to feel this way. So I’d suppress it, and the more I suppressed it, the bigger it became.”
Since she had been subsisting on a steady diet of alcohol and frappuccinos, eventually, Bündchen decided that an entire lifestyle makeover was the way to go. She cut out alcohol, sugar, and smoking, started doing yoga, and partaking in daily exercise. And as her health started to improve, Bündchen then started casting a more critical eye towards DiCaprio. According to her, DiCaprio wasn’t exactly as interested in personal development as she was:
“Was I alone in wanting to do some serious soul-searching while he stayed the same? In the end, unfortunately, the answer was yes.”
So yeah, it seems that while Bündchen decided to embark on living a life of self-improvement and better health, DiCaprio wasn’t on board with rubbish, like “self-awareness” and “introspection.” We all know about DiCaprio’s well-documented hard party days and his “Pussy Posse” in the 1990s and early 2000s which evidently was taking its toll on Bündchen. No longer interested in dating a stunted man-child with no promise of bettering himself, Bündchen called it quits with DiCaprio.
And for all intents and purposes, Bündchen went on to have a much better life than she did when dating DiCaprio. Even if you’re not a fan of Tom Brady, he and Bündchen do seem to have a pretty healthy and successful marriage. And DiCaprio’s life appears to have stayed exactly the same and is still partying with models on boats and switching out blonde twenty-something girlfriends every few months.
I guess some people will always find DiCaprio’s lifestyle to be awesome and cool no matter what. But often what looks cool and awesome in your twenties, tends to look sadder more pathetic as one crawls further into middle-age. Particularly to those twenty-one-year-old models.

Quick, what does Leonardo DiCaprio's current relationship have to do with the government shutdown?
No one expected it to last this long, and it makes everyone little unsure of what the future holds.
Believe it or not, it's been over a year since we first learned that Leo is dating Camila Morrone.
From the start, there was talk of DiCaprio and Morrone getting engaged, but that seems to happen with all of Leo's relationships lately.
Basically, he turned 40 and everyone started expecting him to pull a Clooney, settle down with someone unexpectedly brainy, and start churning out the offspring.
Camila seemed like a good candidate for the Mrs. DiCaprio title from the moment we met her.
Yes, she's a model, like pretty much every other woman Leo has dated in the past 20 years, but those closest to the couple say she challenges the actor intellectually in a way that most of his previous partners have not.
And now, she's reached a virtually unheard of milestone, as she and DiCaprio recently celebrated one full year of dating.
Leo is famously secretive about his love life, but he and Camila recently confirmed that they're still an item by taking a New Year's trip to Thailand together.
As Lainey Gossip points out, Thailand is where Leo filmed his Titanic follow-up The Beach -- a film that came out when Camila was 2 years old.
But hey what's a massive age gap in the face of true love?
Besides, it's not like Leo was ever gonna settle down with a woman anywhere near his age anyway.
So is there any truth to the rumors that DiCaprio and Morrone are engaged?
Well, that may be jumping the gun -- but surely Camila deserves some sort of fancy jewelry for lasting this long with the notoriously fickle-hearted Leo.
Whatever the case, 2018 was certainly a banner year for the Oscar-winner's love life.
Not only because he went public with Camila, but also because it was the year we learned that DiCaprio banged Vanessa Trump.
As much as we'd love to see the guy settle down, perhaps we shouldn't be limiting his ability to stick it to the Trump clan right now.
Just a thought.
Whenever someone asks me how I’m doing, I tend to respond with the phrase “living the dream” even though it’s a total lie. None of us are really living the dream. Very, very few are living the dream. Leo DiCarprio is totally living the dream and not because he’s a big Hollywood movie star making millions of dollars. Oh no, Leo is living the dream because he gets to hang out on a boat with Camila Morrone. Leo knows what’s up.
Yeah, Leo knows he’s a lucky man, truly living the dream. Wouldn’t surprise me one bit if everyone out there has a dream about being on a boat with Camila Morrone tonight. You know, I might try and take myself a bit of a cat nap here to see if I can kick start those Camila Morrone dreams. She doesn’t even to be on a boat, but she’s pretty sexy on one so, let’s just close our eyes and see what happens.
You better count your lucky stars Leo, girls like Camila Morrone don’t come around all that often. Well, I guess they do for you because you’re super famous and whatever, but man, Camila Morrone is one who deserves more attention than all the others. She’s one hell of a super hot boat hottie.

I wouldn’t trade places with Toni Garrn for all of the garlic bread in France, and that is not just because it would require me losing my favorite set of genitals.
At only 25 years old Toni has modeled for all of the great fashion designers, acted in an original Lifetime movie (the most prestigious of all cable channels), and dated Leonardo DiCaprio (the most prestigious of all man faces). All of these successes can only mean one thing: She has peaked. There is no way that Toni is going to be able to keep up a win streak like this for much longer. Pretty soon she is going to have her best days behind her and she will be forced to find something else to do with her many talents.
I on the other hand have not modeled for a single fashion designer (let alone a great one), I have never acted in a movie (not even a porn), I have never dated the female equivalent of Leonardo DiCaprio (or the male equivalent). This can mean only one thing: My best days are sure to be in front of me. So look out, Toni, because I am coming to take your place.

It looks like Burt is gonna make one more run at an Oscar, as news has broken that Reynolds is joining the cast of Quentin Tarantino’s epic in the making, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. While I would never take Robin Williams’ Oscar away from him, the late comedian stole the award that year from Burt’s absolutely transcendent performance in Boogie Nights. It’s like the year Julia Roberts in Erin Brockovich beat Ellen Burstyn in Requiem for a Dream. Sure, Robin and Julia were good, but they were both up against a performance for the ages.
Nevertheless, Burt is presumably making another hunt for the little golden guy that’s alluded him throughout his career by working for a guy who has ushered Christoph Waltz to two Academy Awards, Quentin Tarantino. Reynolds is the latest big name star after Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie to join the cast of Tarantino’s latest, due next summer.
According to Deadline, Reynolds will take on the role of George Spahn, the man who owned the ranch where Charles Manson and his followers lived during the time they perpetrated two grisly murders on seven wealthy residents of Beverly Hills. Whether or not this role has the meat to earn Reynolds another shot at an Oscar, but I imagine this is the role that would’ve gone to Waltz had he been participating, as he’s sadly too old to play Roman Polanski. You want to see that movie now, too, don’t you?
The article goes on to state that Tarantino is talking with three of his regulars to also come aboard the project: Kurt Russell, Michael Madsen, and Tim Roth. I think it’s a slam dunk for Madsen and Roth, who have worked both with Tarantino three times prior. This would be Russell’s third go-around with QT, but it seems like he would have to make time in his schedule for it.
Anyways, I hope this nets Reynolds one last bit of glory. He deserves a good send-off and lord knows no one’s come close to giving him one yet. I can’t guarantee it’ll be anything more than a glorified cameo. The one thing I know for certain is that based on the title and the running time for Tarantino’s last few films, I would say you should expect this one to have an epic, three hour running time, at least. Pack an adult diaper or two.
Quentin Tarantino is about to win all the Oscars in a couple of years.
According to Deadline, Tarantino has cast Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio for his film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. The film follows Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt) as they try to make it in Hollywood in 1969. Margot Robbie will play Sharon Tate, the next-door neighbor best known for being a Charles Manson murder victim.
A Tarantino-directed film about Hollywood starring accomplished actors? Just give it all the awards right now.
Tarantino stated that he’s been working on the script for five years and that he’s “very excited to tell this story of an L.A., and a Hollywood that don’t exist anymore.” He continued, “And I couldn’t be happier about the dynamic teaming of DiCaprio & Pitt as Rick & Cliff.”
The famed director is familiar with both actors. Pitt starred in the Oscar-nominated Inglorious Basterds while DiCaprio starred in Django Unchained, which won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay and was also nominated for Best Picture. If they get Christoph Waltz to play Charles Manson, this might go down as the greatest film of all-time.
This will be Robbie’s first time working with Tarantino.
The film is set to release on August 9, 2019. That date is significant because it’s the 50th anniversary of the Manson murders and one day before Tate’s death. As if you needed any more proof that Tarantino is a twisted man.
Sony has the rights to the film after Tarantino pulled it from the Weinstein Company for…obvious reasons. This will be the first film the director has released without the backing of Weinstein. Something tells me he’ll be alright.
I never much cared for Leonardo DiCaprio after seeing about an hour of Titanic before I got bored and turned it off, and so I avoided his movies until Django Unchained came out. After the film I turned to my friend and asked him “When did Leonardo DiCaprio became an actor?”
Now that I actually like Leo, The Cut caught him out on the town with 19-year-old model Juliette Perkins, and honestly, that makes me like him more. Because let’s admit it, if you were Leonardo DiCaprio, you’d be dating a 19-year-old model, too. Who wouldn’t? DiCaprio has apparently been out with a bevy of young beauties, but he seems to have settled on Perkins for now.
Since August, he has been spotted with the brunette model Lorena Rae, 23, the blonde model Toni Garrn, 25, the brunette model Alina Baikova, 27, an as-yet unidentified blonde model, age take a guess, the brunette model Candice Blackburn, 20, and the blonde model Juliette Perkins, 19.
I’m sure someone is going reading this getting red in the face about the age disparity, but these are consenting adults who can do as they please. And plenty of people with age disparities can have healthy, loving relationships. When I was younger and Woody Allen started seeing Soon-Yi Previn, he was subject to all sorts of mudslinging because she was young and the daughter of Mia Farrow, with whom Woody Allen had a child, but they’ve been together almost 30 years and will celebrate their 20th anniversary later this year, so obviously they had the last laugh.
So do I believe that this young model is going to be the love of Leonardo DiCaprio’s life? Probably not. He’ll probably do what George Clooney did and marry someone who manages to be entirely out of his league despite being the most eligible bachelor in the world. But as long as he and Perkins are having fun and she’s not sending him weird pictures of dolls, who are we to judge?
Man, Martin Scorsese likes putting Leonardo DiCaprio in movies. He cast him as Howard Hughes in The Aviator, he wants him to play The Joker in his upcoming terrible DC Comics Joker origin film, and now he’s cast him to play President Theodore Roosevelt in his upcoming biopic Roosevelt, according to Deadline Hollywood.
Theodore Roosevelt was the 26th President of the United States, an outdoorsman who created the United States Forest Service and isn’t the President Roosevelt who was married to an obvious lesbian who was also his cousin. That really happened, by the way; Eleanor Roosevelt’s maiden name was Roosevelt.
The last time you saw Teddy Roosevelt on the big screen he was being played by Robin Williams in the Night at the Museum series. I’m expecting Leonard DiCaprio to have a slightly more serious take. Also probably more flattering of Roosevelt than the first film about him, 1901’s Terrible Teddy, The Grizzly King, produced by Thomas Edison, which you can see below.
It turns out not everyone was as impressed with Roosevelt’s outdoorsman persona when he was alive as Leonardo DiCaprio is today. The Scorsese-directed biopic is actually fairly timely, as Teddy Roosevelt’s legacy is one of environmentalism and good stewardship of our natural resources, beliefs shared by Leonardo DiCaprio, and something that’s nice to remember we once cared about as we watch the polar ice caps melt and fall into the ocean.
Warner Bros are trying their best to make us forget about that terrible Batman vs. Superman film by giving us a Joker origin film. Instead of using Jared Leto, who appeared as The Joker for like 10-minutes in Suicide Squad, the production company wants a bigger star.
They want the biggest star possible and the greatest actor of our generation.
They want Leo.
And they’re going to use Martin Scorsese to get him. Scorsese was listed as a producer on the upcoming Joker film when it was announced last week, even though his deal hasn’t been officially signed and he probably won’t do anything for the movie other than call up Leonardo DiCaprio.
Where does Jared Leto stand in all of this? Well, he’s still The Joker is the DC Universe that Marvel created in Batman vs. Superman and Suicide Squad. But this isn’t a DC Universe film. You see, Warner Bros wants to create two universes. A DC Universe where Ben Affleck sucks and a CD (yes, I just flipped the letters, that’s not the usual name) Universe where Ben Affleck doesn’t exist.
The CD Universe would allow Warner Bros to create standalone films with serious actors like Leo and the DC Universe would allow them to make terrible films that no one will want to see because who wants to watch Jared Leto after you’ve watched Leo?
Leo doesn’t typically do movie franchises because he’s a real actor who hasn’t reached the point of his career where he’s only doing films for money. That’s why Warner Bros is creating this standalone CD Universe. To lure the Leos of the world into comic book hell.
And to confuse the hell out of and piss off nerds everywhere.
Leo hasn’t been seen on screen since The Revenant because he’s been too busy banging models. But he has a couple of movies in pre-production. Given that he only does roughly one movie a year, don’t expect to Leo as The Joker until 2020.
Actually, don’t expect to see Leo as The Joker ever.
Hurricane Harvey was a Category 4 storm when it first made landfall in Texas.
We have all seen the photos of the flooding. We've seen highways that have flooded so high that the water above them has waves.
We've seen people standing on rooftops, people riding boats between houses, and heard the horrifying stories of people who were swept away by the water.
Celebrities have heard this, too, and they have been using their considerable platforms and their own personal resources to help with the relief effort.
As climate change continues to destabilize what were once more temperate weather patterns, these "500 year storms" will be coming more and more frequently.
Many believe that we need a better coordinate governmental response when these disasters strike. It's good to hear stories of private citizens acting as heroes, but it's better if they never have to.
In the mean time, however, boat owners have been taking time off of work and traveling with their boats towards Texas where they hope to help distribute supplies and reach people who are still stranded.
Celebrities are donating money to the relief effort, but some stars are doing even more.
1. JJ Watt
2. Jennifer Lopez and Alexander Rodriguez
3. DJ Khaled
4. Nicki Minaj
5. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson
6. Kevin Hart
One of my favorite things about celebrities is that there’s always going to be one or two weird quirks about them that are going to slip out in some interview. I mean, everyone has weird quirks, but it’s always nice to remember that celebrities are also normal, weird people at heart. Like apparently Blake Lively used to take pictures of a doll and send them to Leonardo DiCaprio when they were dating.
DiCaprio, the Titanic star who later became an actor, and Lively, of Gossip Girl fame, dated for about four months before they split and Lively started dating her Green Lantern co-star Ryan Reynolds, her current husband. Apparently during this time Lively thought to herself that taking pictures of a doll would be a good idea, at least according to this Vanity Fair retrospective on Gossip Girl’s 10th anniversary.
“We learned a lot from Blake,” Safran [executive producer Joshua Safran] said. “When I think about shooting the L.A. episodes, Blake was dating at the time, and she had this thing where she had a doll that she took photos of that she sent to Leo. Blake was way ahead of the curve. It was pre-Instagram. She was documenting her life in photographs in a way that people were not yet doing.”
Do people just post pictures of dolls to Instagram? Have I missed an entire subculture of doll photo enthusiasts? Is this a normal thing and I’m the weird one for not taking pictures of dolls?
The real question, to me, is just what is this doll? Here’s a theory from Twitter:
I believe that this rice baby is the 'doll' that is being discussed in all of the articles about the photos Blake Lively would send Leo. pic.twitter.com/JttHvzt7Lx

It’s probably not this one, right?
I think it's kind of fucked up that the doll Blake Lively was sending Leonardo DiCaprio pictures of was Annabelle. pic.twitter.com/oHrpQryCXG
— michael brown (@boyinquestion) August 30, 2017
Over at Jezebel, Hazel Cills thinks Lively probably took pictures of a Carol Farris Barbie, the character she played in Green Lantern.
Okay but back to this doll. Even though I’d be god damn delighted to learn Lively carries around some porcelain, Victorian doll that scared everyone on set to death, my personal theory is more boring. Green Lantern came out in 2011, the same time Lively and DiCaprio were dating, and during that time Lively received a Barbie doll based on her character Carol Ferris.
Whatever the doll may have been, I think it’s safe to say Ryan Reynolds would be a lot more amused by this than Leo, whose embarrassing quirk is vaping during sex. Honestly, I think I’d rather have the doll pictures.
Everyone loves Kate Winslet. Personally, I have no opinion on Kate Winslet. She’s fine. I can’t tell you a single movie she’s in besides Titanic. But other people love her.
Kate is on the cover of the latest Glamour magazine in an effort to promote another movie I won’t see, The Mountain Between Us.
No one really cares about that. All anyone cares about is Kate and her current relationship with the great Leonard DiCaprio.
“You don’t even want to know the last conversation we had, because it was so funny and made me laugh so much. We found ourselves saying to each other, ‘Can you imagine if the world really knew the stupid things we say?’ I’m not going to tell you what we actually talk about, but yeah, we’re very, very close and sometimes we do quote the odd Titanic line back and forth to each other, because only we can, and we find it really funny.”
We’ve solved it, ladies and gentlemen. We have solved why Leo only keeps his models for a year before trading them in for a new model. It’s because he’s always going to love that ’75 BMW. The new models might come with better features and they’re more put together and showy, but no one ever gets over their first car.
Sorry, Lorena Ray, you’re just another placeholder until Winslet divorces Ned Rocknroll (yes, that is his legal last name, not me dismissing him as some unimportant nobody in the music industry). He’s trying to distance his feelings by going with a brunette model this year, but you can’t fool us, Leo. Not when you’re calling Kate in the middle of the night and whispering sweet Titanic lines into her ear.
Leo and Kate aren’t meant to be together forever.
Or until Kate decides that there isn’t enough room on the door for Leo and let’s go.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese are just one of those great film duos. Like Tom Hanks and Steven Speilberg, Bill Murray and Wes Anderson, or Johnny Depp and Tim Burton (if you’re feeling vulgar), Leo and Marty do some of their best work together. Think about it, the list includes Gangs of New York, The Aviator, The Departed, Shutter Island, and The Wolf of Wall Street. Those are probably some of my favorite films from either of those guys that isn’t Goodfellas or Blood Diamond (what can I say? I really like Blood Diamond. Fight me.). The dynamic duo has announced their latest team up.
The title of the new Leo/Marty joint has a mouthful of a title: Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI. That sounds right up both of their alleys. Leo already played a duly appointed federal mah-shal in Shutter Island. It’s based on a bestselling book by David Grann, who also wrote The Lost City of Z, which was made into a critical darling film this year.
The movie naturally follows the early days of the FBI in the 1920s. The investigation has the feds in pursuit of a killer targeting Osage nation members to get the oil under their land. Sounds perfect right? It’s probably not going to break any profanity records, but I’ll probably go see it, especially if Leo does a stupid accent.
Not every child star goes off the rails.
Sure, we know the stories of Amanda Bynes and Lindsay Lohan, and even Miley Cyrus has certainly turned some heads at times.
But many child stars manage to maintain solid careers, become role models, and do some great work for charity.
Here are a few who turned out to be pretty respectable - and pretty normal.
1. Daniel Radcliffe
2. Mayim Bialik
3. Anna Chlumsky
4. Neil Patrick Harris
5. Hilary Duff
6. Joseph Gordon-Levitt
In news that should surprise no one, Leonardo DiCaprio is single again. He had been dating model Nina Agdal for about a year. Hey, good for her, she made it an entire year.
According to a Page Six source, “they remain close friends.” Of course they do. Leo may have a lonely night or two where he needs a “close friend.”
Leo will now turn his attention to a different model. Maybe he’ll go after Playmate of the Year Brook Power. Or how about Bella Hadid? If she’s still mad about Selena Gomez and The Weeknd, dating DiCaprio would be a good form of revenge. Or maybe a combination of Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski.
Basically, this is Leo’s world. And we’re just living in it. Hoping he leaves a model or two for the rest of us.
Luckily, this one is now available.
Accidents can happen any time and anywhere and nobody is exempted. Even the rich and famous celebrities do experience it when they least expect it. And the unexpected sometimes happen during filming.
Hollywood celebrities, notably the men, sometimes like to do the difficult action scenes themselves with no double. But things can go wrong at times leaving them injured.
Get to know here who among the popular male Hollywood celebrities had experienced getting injured on the set.
It was during the filming of Rocky IV that lead actor Sylvester Stallone got hurt. And it happend during an important scene between Rocky Balboa and Ivan Drago played by Dolph Lundgren.
The unfortunate scene happened when Lundgren hit Stallone in the chest during a climactic fight. Stallone actually instructed the well-built actor to knock him out but Lundgren hit him so hard resulting in the swelling of his pericardial sac which then began pressing against his heart. The actor was then airlifted to St. John’s in Santa Monica, California where he stayed in intensive care for nine days.
At first, Stallone’s insurer Lloyd’s of London did not want to pay his medical bills. It was only after watching the footage of the fight scene that they were convinced about what happened to the actor.
Injuries sustained by actors on the set should be covered by insurance, according to Curtis Quay. Their health insurance will help pay for their medical bills while undergoing treatment.
The year 2009 was not so lucky for Channing Tatum as he got into a minor accident. The actor was filming a scene for “The Eagle” in Scotland where he should wade through icy water. In between takes, he had to be kept warm and a crew member was tasked to mix boiling water and river water and pour it into Tatum’s wetsuit.
After the shooting wrapped up that day, Tatum wanted to indulge in one last splash of warm water. Unfortunately, the crew member assigned to him forgot to mix the hot water with cold water. That incident led the actor to partially suffer from burns including his private parts. He was immediately brought to the hospital which was an hour away and was bandaged up.
Best actor Leonardo DiCaprio also had his share of injuries on the set. One time, he accidentally cut his hand when he slammed it into a glass during a scene where he was having a heated monologue for the movie Django Unchained released in 2012. But instead of asking for medical attention right away, the actor continued the scene and used his real injury to improve on his acting. When you get to watch the film again, you now know that it was his own blood that he used to smear across his face while playing the role of Kerry Washington.
The dashing actor, George Clooney, is not exempted from accidents. He, too, hurt his spine in 2005 while filming for Syriana. And it was not a simple injury as he was expelling spinal fluid from his nose when that happened.
Clooney related to Rolling Stone magazine in 2011 that his spinal injury caused severe migraines and even prompted him to think about ending his life. He said he was not able to move then while on the hospital bed with an IV in his arm describing his condition as similar to suffering from a stroke.
Alan Thicke’s dead and that sucks. Now lets look back at some moments in Growing Pains history. Such as the time Leonardo DiCaprio starred in its final season.
Before Titanic blew up his star, and before What’s Eating Gilbert Grape gave him buzz, Leonardo DiCaprio appeared on the 1990s sitcom. He starred in the final season in 1991 as Luke Bower. DiCaprio played the homeless teen who had been taken in by the Seaver family.
DiCaprio’s role lasted 23 episode. While I can’t say if he had star quality on the show because I don’t have a time machine, one actor must’ve sensed it. That was actor Jeremy Miller.
Miller played Ben Seaver, the blonde-haired little brother in the family. Was there jealousy? Yeaaa, there was.
“There was a little bit of competition there. It bothered me a little bit that the network felt necessary to bring him in rather than focusing on my character, who had now grown up and could now take over for Mike as the rapscallion. That was a little weird.”
One dude went on to win an Oscar, the other dude needs to be Googled because I have no idea what he’s doing.
RIP Alan Thicke.
Tom Hardy doesn’t have one yet, but he’s gonna real soon thanks to Leonardo DiCaprio. DiCaprio predicted that Hardy would land an Oscar nomination for his role in The Revenant. Tom Hardy in return bet a tattoo of the winner’s choosing that he wouldn’t. Well, one Oscar nod later it looks like Tom Hardy is about to get inked.
What tattoo did Leo choose? Tom Hardy told Esquire:
“He wrote, in this really shitty handwriting: ‘Leo knows everything.’ Ha! I was like, ‘OK, I’ll get it done, but you have to write it properly.'”
We often imagine celebrities as leading perfect lives - when you're rich and famous, what problems could you possibly have?
But the truth is, stars can suffer as much as anyone. Mental illness, as they say, does not discriminate.
Many celebs have been open about their struggles with mental health, helping to end the stigma that once surrounded conditions such as depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder and bipolar disorder.

This week, Leonardo DiCaprio was bestowed with a prestigious award for his environmental activism by New York nonprofit Riverkeeper.
Awesome. Except that he arrived to the city via private jet.
Maybe not so awesome.
The actor was in France for the Cannes Film Festival when he jetted off to NYC, and then returned to the South of France the next day in another private jet.
Needless to say, many fans weren't thrilled, because that's a lot of gas for just one dude.
Nevertheless, DiCaprio's rep explained that the Oscar-winner was due back in Cannes to speak at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala and had few options for transportation.
“He was asked to speak at both Riverkeeper and amfAR events, but the only way to attend the two fundraisers was to hitch a ride with flights that were already planned," the rep told Us Weekly.
"Leo helped both events raise millions, donated his own funds, auctioned off his house and had speaking roles in both programs.”
Yeah, but still. The optics.
During the gala, DiCaprio auctioned off a stay at his Palm Springs home for $336,000, which benefitted the charity.
DiCaprio dedicated a good portion of his acceptance speech at the Academy Awards this year to the subject of climate change.
"Climate change is real. It is happening right now," he told the audience. "It is the most urgent threat affecting our entire species."
"We need to support leaders around the world… who speak for all of humanity... I thank you all for this amazing award tonight. Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take this award for granted."
After the speech, he received a standing ovation and the adoration of environmentalists everywhere.
Past hookups always have a knack for finding their way back to you, amiright?
Maybe the desert heat gave these two the love fever, because Leonardo DiCaprio was seen cozying up to Rihanna last night during Coachella festivities.
The two both attended Neon Carnival, an event held near the music and arts festival in Indio, California.
"Leo slipped into the party incognito and was dancing and singing to 'No Scrubs,'" a source told People. "He knew every word!"
"A couple tables over Rihanna was dancing with a couple girlfriends," added the source. "Leo saw her and made his way over to say Hi."
Early last year, eyewitnesses claimed they spotted Leo and RiRi making out during a party at the Playboy Mansion.
In the months that followed, the tabloids went bonkers with Rihanardo news, alleging that they'd been hooking up for years, were living together and even got pregnant!
Rihanna finally shut it all down by denying any kind of dalliance with Leo.
"It sounds like you should stay away from the blogs because they will screw you every time," Rihanna told a reporter.
"I'm so busy right now that I just don't have a lot of time to offer a man, so it wouldn't even be fair to be thinking of pulling someone into this life.
"But if I did, he would have to be man enough to not be scared."
Hrrrrmmm. Does Leo think he's man enough now?
I know this Oscar post is a little late but you know what they say. Screw you! Anyway, on Sunday night, Leonardo DiCaprio finally won that Oscar he’s been searching for. If you bottled up his tears from past years, there would have been enough to erode a piece of gold into an actual statue.
Granted, the award seemed a little tainted. You could definitely make a very compelling argument that he handedly deserved that trophy and no one would argue that point in the least, but we’ll never know if this was a pity Oscar or not.
Either way, Leo doesn’t care. He got his golden statue. His post-Oscar speech to his friends probably went something like, “The Pussy Posse rides tonight!” And then a 25-year-old model rode him reverse cowboy into the sunset.
It's the grand finale to Awards Season 2016, and what a delight the red carpet was tonight in Hollywood.
Nominees who passed for Disney characters! Gowns that resembled loofahs! That bear that nearly ate Leo!
Let's thumb through some of tonight's looks, shall we? Those most pleasing to the eye, and those who - according to one tweet - look as though their owners "went HAM at Michael's."
1. Jennifer Garner: 2016 Academy Awards
2. Leonardo DiCaprio: 2016 Academy Awards
3. Cate Blanchett: 2016 Academy Awards
4. Tina Fey: 2016 Academy Awards
5. Kerry Washington: 2016 Academy Awards
6. Reese Witherspoon: 2016 Academy Awards
It's that time of year again.
On Sunday night, millions will tune in to watch pretty people take home gold statues, and Hollywood will expect us to take it all very seriously.
This year, that's harder than ever as ignorant snubs for films like Straight Outta Compton, Creed, The Hateful Eight, Carol, and Diary of a Teenage Girl make it clear that the average Academy voter is more concerned with nominating films that fit the bill for traditional Oscar fare than with honoring the year's best and most memorable films.
As a result, we're left with one of the least populist, most awards-bait-stuffed Best Picture fields in years.
Sure, the Academy threw the average Joe Popcorn Bucket a bone with Mad Max: Fury Road, but with the exception of the film doesn't stand a chance in any of the major categories (it might not even take home any technical awards).
So while there are many strong contenders this year (For the love of God, see The Big Short, Brooklyn, and Room, if you haven't already.), there are probably more than a few big nominees you haven't seen, and there might be a few you've never even heard of.
Regardless, many of us will drunkenly toss a $20 into the pot and fill in some bubbles before hunkering down to see if anyone trips on the red carpet. (Don't let us down, J-Law!)
That's why we've assembled the list below to provide you with all the information you'll need to fleece your friends on Hollywood's biggest night.
Of course, if you really want to play it safe, just find some uninformed sucker and bet him that all the night's acting prizes will go to white people.
Unlike minorities working in the film industry, you're sure to win big!

Art is something to be enjoyed by the masses. It doesn’t matter your class, your family situation, your race, your religion, or your level of intelligence, art is out there to inspire, allow people to emote, and ultimately bring the generations together to experience a corporate oneness that isn’t experienced often enough.
While preferences and ideas of what is actually art vary from person to person, everyone can agree on the fact that everyone has their art and sees it as valuable. Each to his own, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What is beautiful to you may not have the same effect on another, but it doesn’t negate the fact that it is beautiful in the grand scheme of things.
Many celebrities are masters of a certain form of art. This doesn’t mean they can appreciate another form. Park West Gallery is a fine art gallery that knows this to be true. They take pride in showing the varying creative genius of the world and they often have the biggest of names in to purchase a little slice of artistic genius to take home with them.
Though there is no shortage of celebs who collect masterpieces, here are some celebrities who love to collect fine art.
Leonardo Da Vinci…or Leonardo DiCaprio rather, is well known for his love of fine art. Though he doesn’t have any Da Vinchi’s in his collection, he does own Salvador Dali originals, and Oscar Murillo originals. This quite impressive considering it takes a significant amount of money to own masterpieces created by artists of that magnitude.
It really comes as no surprise that DiCaprio collects…he’s one of the best actors and most artsy of souls in Hollywood. He is very careful about the roles he plays so he is probably just as selective about the art he collects. All in all, he really seems to appreciate the depth of personage that comes with creating a work of art.
Again, it comes as no surprise that Brad and Angelina are art collectors. This philanthropist couple has a wide love and appreciation for all of humanity, and with the money and position they hold in Hollywood, why wouldn’t they adourn their homes with the most beautiful works of art to ever be brought to existence?
Evidently, Brad is more about it than Angelina, who would rather the money be given to charity, but sometimes it’s okay to indulge. The couple owns a painting by Neo Rauch that apparently cost them a million dollars. One could see why Angelina would rather the money be reappropriated. Oh well, give the proceeds of your next movie away. That will make up for the difference and then some.
In the end, art inspires and brings people to another place. It’s likened to be a spiritual experience by many. If the rest of the world had the money, they too would probably buy it and decorate their homes with it. Alas, everyone must resign to viewing it in museum observatories instead of from their couches at home. What a bother.
#BoyfriendGoals: Taylor Kinney!
After the Internet exploded with Leo’s peculiar reaction to Lady Gaga, fiance Taylor Kinney reportedly confronted the Best Actor!
A source dishes to Radar Online, “Taylor was not going to let anyone make fun of his future wife, even if they are an A-list actor.”
“Are you kidding? I’m so proud! Proud of my girl,” the 34-year-old actor excitedly tells US Magazine.
Leonardo DiCaprio played coy when asked about it!
“Oh lord – that’s trending, huh? I just didn’t know what was passing me, that’s all!”
If you say so, boy!
More Gaga and Leo!
