Sissy Spacek Jokes with Robert Redford About Working Together for the First Time

Teaming up with Robert Redford for the first time on the silver screen, Academy Award-winning actress Sissy Spacek admits she succumbed to the actor’s legendary movie star charm and good looks during filming.

Speaking about her role as the sweet, grounded love interest of Redford’s character, Forrest Tucker, in the crime-comedy-drama The Old Man & the Gun at The New York Times’ TimesTalks Friday, Spacek revealed that writer-director David Lowery had to nudge her back to reality during filming.

“I thought it was easy from the beginning, but when we were doing the scene in the café, I was apparently so enamored with Mr. Redford over here that David had to come over and whisper in my ear, ‘He’s Forrest Tucker, not Robert Redford,'” said Spacek, 68.

“Enough about us,” joked Redford, 82.

For his part, the Academy Award-winning director, Sundance Institute founder and environmental champion admitted that he had admired Spacek ever since he saw her in the 1973 film Badlands.

Describing the film as an “early Bonnie and Clyde,” he said, “I thought, ‘Wow, that’s quite a performance.'”

Not missing a beat, Spacek quipped, “You sure waited a long time,” as the audience erupted into laughter.

Based on a true story, The Old Man & the Gun centers around a genteel and productive bank robber who captured the public’s attention with his knack for eluding police and successfully escaping from prison 18 times — including from San Quentin State Prison in California at age 70 in a makeshift kayak he fashioned from behind bars.

After Redford said how much he liked working with Spacek, she said, “I enjoyed working with you, too.”

Spacek shared that sentiment at Thursday’s premiere of the Fox Searchlight film at Manhattan’s Paris Theater when she was asked what it was like to kiss the legendary leading man.

“It was over so fast!” Spacek told PEOPLE. “And it was 4 o’clock in the morning. And it was wonderful! It was worth the wait.”

Toward the end of the TimesTalks discussion, New York Times contributor and moderator Logan Hill read a question from an audience member who wanted to know if The Old Man & the Gun would, in fact, be Redford’s last film, which he had told Entertainment Weekly in August.

Echoing what he had said at Thursday’s premiere, Redford called that proclamation “a mistake,” in part because it took attention away from the film.

For that, he said, “I felt bad.”

“I shouldn’t be talking about retiring,” he said. “I should just slip away from acting into some other territory but not talk about it.”

The Old Man & the Gun opens in theaters on Friday, Sept. 28.

Joe Alwyn Explains Why He and Taylor Swift Keep Relationship Hidden from Public: ‘It’s Just Not Theirs to Have’

Joe Alwyn is never, ever, ever … spilling the beans about his relationship with Taylor Swift.

After breaking his silence about the romance by, well, refusing to speak about his girlfriend in a new interview with British Vogue for its October issue, the Favourite actor is continuing to demur when prodded to speak about their undercover courtship.

“I understand people’s curiosity in the world we live in, about people’s private lives. Well, I don’t understand it, but I know it exists,” says Alwyn in another interview with Total Film. “For me, I just don’t feel it’s something I want to offer up to be picked apart by people who don’t know about it, and it’s just not their to have.”

After managing to date secretly for months, news of their relationship finally broke last May — but the couple continued to keep things tightly under wraps. However, Alwyn has been a familiar face at Swift’s tour stops and the couple have been photographed a few times out on dates.

“I’m aware people want to know about that side of things,” the 27-year-old rising star told British Vogue. “I think we have been successfully very private and that has now sunk in for people … but I really prefer to talk about work.”

In late August, the stars were photographed holding hands on a rare public outing in London just one month after they retreated to Turks and Caicos for a luxurious vacation.

“She seems to be in a great place both career and love wise,” a source previously told PEOPLE about the 28-year-old Grammy winner. “Joe is just an amazing boyfriend. He is very supportive. Taylor adores his family. She’s in a very good place.”

Jane Fonda on How She Stopped Her Bulimia Cold Turkey: ‘You Can’ Get Over It

In 1982, when Jane Fonda launched her workout video empire at age 45, she had recently overcome an eating disorder that began when she was in her teens—and says the workouts were instrumental in helping her finally get over the disease.

“I was doing the workout before I started the business, and it gave me back a sense of control over my body,” she told PEOPLE’s editor-in-chief Jess Cagle, in the most recent episode of the Jess Cagle Interview.

“The longer space you put between yourself and the addiction, the easier it gets,” she says of recovering from both bulimia and anorexia. “I started the workout, and that kind of cemented my ability to eat normal, which I can do now. Some people say you can never get over it, but you can.”

As for how she finally stopped the cycle of bingeing and purging—or simply avoiding food altogether—she says the reality was, she was getting too old to handle it.

“There was a pint in my mid-forties where I realized if I continued to be controlled by these addictions, that I was going to…I don’t know if I was going to die, but my life would fall apart,” she says.

“As you get older, with each binge, the fatigue and the hostility and self-loathing lasts longer,” she says. “I had a husband and children and a career, and I was politically active. I couldn’t keep doing it all and allow this addiction to ruin my life. So I stopped cold turkey.”

She adds that it wasn’t easy: “Oh it was so hard,” she admits.

Fonda says she’d like others to understand that eating disorders are never actually about food. “It has to do with filling a hole,” she says. “We’re vessels that need to be full in spirits…but there are other ways to fill it.”

Robert Redford Reveals He Never Should Have Said He Is Retiring: ‘That Was a Mistake’

Robert Redford regrets saying he is retiring from Hollywood.

“I think it was a mistake to say that I was retiring because you never know,” the iconic actor told PEOPLE at the New York premiere of The Old Man & the Gun on Thursday.

“It did feel like it was time maybe, to concentrate on another category.”

The 82-year-old actor admitted that he never should have said that his last film would be upcoming FOX Searchlight crime-comedy.

“I shouldn’t have said that because it draws attention away from the film.”

In August, the actor told Entertainment Weekly that he would be retiring after wrapping production on the movie.

“Never say never, but I pretty well concluded that this would be it for me in terms of acting, and move towards retirement after this ’cause I’ve been doing it since I was 21,” Redford explained to EW.

“I thought, ‘Well, that’s enough.’ And why not go out with something that’s very upbeat and positive?”

Redford made his Broadway debut in 1959 in Tall Story and hit the small screen with various roles in 1960.

In the illustrious career that has followed, Redford has earned two Oscars, six Golden Globes, and one BAFTA, among several other accolades. He has starred in dozens of films, including Butch Cassidy and the Sundance KidThe StingThe Great GatsbyAll the President’s Men, and Out of Africa.

Jack Black Brings His Family to Walk of Fame Ceremony — Where He Slams President Trump

Jack Black‘s family was by his side on Wednesday, as the 49-year-old actor received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Posing together after the ceremony, Black was all smiles as he stood beside wife Tanya Haden and sons Samuel, 12, and Thomas, 10.

Black was the 2,645th person to receive the honor. His star was placed next to the historic Stromberg Clock on Hollywood Boulevard, as an homage to his new film, The House with a Clock in its Walls.

Brink costar Tim Robbins was in the crowd for the ceremony, which was emceed in part by School of Rock costar Mike White and director Richard Linklater.  

“I’m so nervous because I’m not used to having praise heaped upon me by people I love and respect so much,” Black said, taking the podium. “It’s very embarrassing for me. In some ways this is torture, but it’s also hugely humbling and I can’t believe everyone came. … I thought no one was going to come to my stupid thing. Look at all you beautiful people. Thank you for the love.”

Of course, the comedian couldn’t help but make a joke or too – starting with the fact that the star indicates he should do something else: retire.

“I’ve wanted one of these things for so long, since I was a kid. I thought, ‘Oh man. If you get one of those things on the sidewalk, that means you’ve made it.’ And I feel like I’ve finally grasped that sweet brass ring. And the the question is where do we go now?” Black said.

“I’m here to announce my retirement,” he added, to the boos of onlookers. “I got the thing! Why continue! Once you get the thing, I’ve made it. I’ve officially, I have made it. And I’m going to focus on diet and exercise.”

Black also had some strong words for President Donald Trump.

“I love you all so much,” Black told the crowd before leaving podium, according to video streamed on the Walk of Fame’s official site and captured by Variety. “Except for Donald Trump. He’s a piece of s—! Peace out, love you!”

Previously, Black has been a vocal critic of Trump’s. On the day of his inauguration, he and Tenacious D bandmate Kyle Glass performed their protest song — “The Government Totally Sucks” — at an anti-protest rally.

We haven’t played this song for years, because it just never felt appropriate,” he told the crowd, in video of from the performance shared online. “But now, we’re happy to unleash the beast. The government totally sucks.”

Hoda Kotb Stays in Touch with Her ‘Guiding Light’ Sandra Bullock After Bonding Over Adoption

Hoda Kotb and Sandra Bullock, who bonded on Today over adopting children in a segment that aired in early June, remain friends thanks to their motherhood journeys.

“We do keep in touch,” Kotb, 54, said Tuesday on Watch What Happens Live. “She’s somebody who sort of guided me through the process when I was wondering like, ‘Can I do it?’ She said to me, ‘Oh yes you can.’ ”

She explained, “I remember thinking, ‘I wonder if it’s too late. I wonder if I missed my lane or my window.’ And she said, ‘There is no box anymore. You go for it.’ And she’s been kind of a guiding light.”

Kotb’s 19-month-old daughter Haley Joy was born in February 2017. Bullock, 54, adopted Laila at 3½ years old in 2015 and brought home Louis at 3 months old in 2010.

Savannah Guthrie chimed in on WWHL, “These two have the loveliest friendship. I have seen it behind the scenes. It’s so wonderful.”

Just as Bullock inspired Kotb, Guthrie added, “Hoda, I think, has inspired other women who are like, ‘You know what, why not me? I know I’m a mother, and I’m gonna do something.’ I think that’s incredible.”

On Today, Bullock got emotional as she said, “Hundreds of thousands of children that are ready to be your child, you’re a forever parent the minute you accept the love of that child.”

She added, “It’s amazing to me how we can take away people’s happiness by telling them this is the box that you have to stay in. There is no box. There’s no box.”

On WWHL, Kotb got candid about the weighty moment she found out she was going to be a mother.

“I still remember my phone going off, and it was someone from the adoption agency saying, ‘Call me now.’ And I remember, I paused for one second because I thought to myself, ‘This is a line of demarcation in my life.’ and I wrote down, ’11:54. This is the moment.’ ”

She continued, “And I felt it, and I dialed this number and she said, ‘She’s here.’ It’s the closest thing to a live birth that I would ever experience. It was such a beautiful moment.”

Tyra Banks Says Lindsay Lohan Will Appear in Life-Size Sequel ‘in Some Kind of Way’

Get ready, Life-Size fans because Casey and Eve are officially reuniting (in some capacity!)

On Tuesday, Tyra Banks revealed that while Lindsay Lohan won’t be reprising her role as Casey Stuart due to scheduling conflicts, Lohan will be making an appearance in the sequel.

“She has this new TV show on MTV about this club so she couldn’t make it, which was sad,” Banks, 44, told The Hollywood Reporter. “ will be in the movie in some kind of way. We’ll see where that ends up.”

“I actually think we are going to surpass expectations because me as a producer and actor in it, it surpassed my own expectations,” Banks explained to The Hollywood Reporter.

A representative for Lohan did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Life-Size, which premiered in 2000 on ABC’s The Wonderful World of Disney, starred a then up-and-coming Lohan as a young girl who accidentally brings her quintessential fashion doll — played by Banks — to life.

In July, the America’s Next Top Model host announced that she would be returning for the sequel, alongside Francia Raísa, the Grown-ish actress who notably donated her kidney to BFF Selena Gomez.

“Now filming: LIFE SIZE 2,” Banks wrote on Instagram, captioning a picture of her and Raísa. “It’s time y’all! You’ve waited long enough. Could not find one single woman more perfect to co-star with Eve than the magnificently fierce @franciaraisa.”

Life-Size 2 will follow Grace Manning (Raísa) as the “confident and funny” CEO of her mother’s company Marathon Toys (who are known for manufacturing the iconic Eve doll). Though she holds the power position, Raísa is “a hot mess in the middle of her quarter-life crisis” whose “wild-child ways are causing the company’s stock to plummet” — something Eve will surely help fix.

Joining the cast is Gavin Stenhouse as Grace’s love interest, Calum; Shanica Knowles and Hank Chen as Grace’s BFFs Tahlia and Brendan; and Alison Fernandez as Lex, Grace’s young next-door neighbor.

Along with starring and executive-producing the film, Banks will also be singing Life-Size 2‘s theme song, which she did for the first film. In March, the America’s Got Talent host told Entertainment Weekly that the new song will stray from a “nursery school rhyme” and sound “a lot more current” than the original.

“I am going to dust off my retired vocal chords for Life-Size 2,” Banks explained. “I’d love to find a top producer that everybody knows, like a household name, to do the music. And a beautiful sound technician to auto-tune the hell out of my voice. … Those words will be in there some way, but it’ll sound totally new. … We’re going for club banger as opposed to nursery school rhyme this time!”

Life-Size 2 is expected to premiere during Freeform’s 25 Days of Christmas in December.

Angela Bassett Reacts After Being Misidentified as Omarosa Manigault in New York Times Caption

Angela Bassett has responded after she was misidentified in The New York Times as Omarosa Manigault-Newman.

On Tuesday morning, the newspaper published a photo of Rachel Brosnahan receiving her award for lead actress in a comedy series at the Emmy Award’s on Monday evening. The award was presented by Tiffany Haddish and Bassett, who were also both featured in the shot.

The only problem? In the NYT caption, Bassett, 60, was wrongly identified as former White House aide Manigault-Newman, 44.

To make matters worse, the Apprentice-contestant-turned-Trump-aide wasn’t even present at Monday night’s ceremony.

The outlet quickly addressed the mistake in a tweet on Tuesday, claiming the error was due to a “photo wire service in some early print editions.” They also noted that a correction would be issued in Wednesday’s paper.

However, some Twitter users were already fired up about the mistake.

“Do all dark skinned black women look the same to your editors??” wrote Joy Villa. “Gorgeous and talented Queen Angela Bassett looks nothing like that other one.”

Another user referred to the NYT’s error as “pathetic and disgusting” and compared it to mistaking George Clooney for U.S. Senator of Florida Marco Rubio at the Academy Awards.

“…you know, bc Marc Rubio is at the Academy Awards every year,” the user wrote. “….& bc all white ppl look alike too.”



Despite the backlash, there was one person who didn’t seem to be bothered by the mix-up: Bassett herself!

Acknowledging all of the angry tweets, the 9-1-1 actress addressed her supporters on Twitter with a simple two-word mantra.

“Hey Everybody, no worries!” she wrote, alongside a meme of Kerry Washington in Scandal that reads “It’s handled.”


Bassett has previously spoken out about racism, admitting to PEOPLE that her 12-year-old twins Bronwyn and Slater have already experienced race-related prejudices from their peers.

“Even from the age of four, from preschool, they’ve had to deal with — and as crazy as it seems or sounds — color issues,” she told PEOPLE’s Editor-in-Chief Jess Cagle in an episode of The Jess Cagle Interview. “Or because they were African Americans, and whether other kids will play with them or have issue with that.”

Added the 9-1-1 actress: “It can’t come from their young minds,” she said of her belief that kids aren’t born racist. “It’s something that they’ve heard somewhere.”

But while it seems Bassett has no problem brushing off an accidental mix-up nowadays, she hopes that her kids won’t have to endure the same type of experience one day.

“It makes you gasp and it just squeezes your heart sometimes, because you never want your kids to go through these sort of pain issues,” she said. “Or you thought it’d be much later, once they get a firm footing of who they are.”

9-1-1‘s season 2 two-night premiere airs Sunday, Sept. 23 and Monday, Sept. 24 at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.

Sally Field Bares All in New Memoir: From Burt Reynolds’ Controlling Ways to Binge Eating

Sally Field’s new memoir is revealing a whole new side of the actress — including her relationship with one of the most famous men in Hollywood.

Field, 71, opens up about various heartbreaking and intensely personal moments of her life in her new book In Pieces. In it, she touches on her childhood sexual abuse, her eating disorder to her tenuous relationship with Burt Reynolds.

Here are six surprising revelations from Fields’ memoir, which is now available for purchase.

She was sexually and emotionally abused by her stepfather, actor and stuntman Jock Mahoney.

Field’s mother, Margaret, filed for divorce from her father, Richard, in 1951, and remarried Mahoney in 1952. They divorced in 1968 and he died in 1989, according to The New York Times.

The actress says that when she was 14 years old, he would frequently call her into his bedroom alone.

“I knew,” she says in her memoir. “I felt both a child, helpless and not a child. Powerful. This was power. And I owned it. But I wanted to be a child — and yet.”

“I want to be good, but more than anything I want it to be over. And some part of me feels I’m in danger,” she writes.

Burt Reynolds began to “housebreak” Field early in their relationship. 

Field and Reynolds met on the set of their film Smokey and the Bandit in 1977. What followed was a tumultuous relationship, she writes.

Field writes that Reynolds “began to housebreak” her when they got together, “teaching me what was allowed and what was not.”

“If I wanted to tell him what I’d accomplished or talk about my children, or Lord knows, disagree with him about anything, he’d listen glassy-eyed for a moment, maybe offer a distracted comment or two before turning away,” she writes.”

Reynolds was also controlling, often wanting to know Field’s relationships with men who were not him.

“I knew early on never to mention the men who had been in my life, and later became terrified of running into somebody I might have known, whether sexually or not,” she writes. “Burt would pinch my face in his hands, demanding I tell him who the guy was and what kind of relationship I’d had with him.”

The actor died earlier this month at the age of 82.

She never had many friends growing up.

“I don’t remember having any friends or playdates,” she writes, explaining kids at school would play “Red Rover, Red Rover.”

“I hated this no-win situation,” she says of the game. “I was the smallest one, and even if they did call my name, I couldn’t break through, only bounced off and had to return to the land of the losers. But there was always the chance that they wouldn’t call my name, and I’d have to stand there as everyone else broke through, joining the line one at a time, until they were all holding hands and looking at me, alone.”

Field’s initially said no to playing Sister Bertrille in The Flying Nun until she was bullied into it by her stepfather.

Field’s says her agent and others tried to talk her into accepting the role for the sitcom The Flying Nun, but she was determined to say no.

“… I didn’t want to play a cutesy version of a Catholic nun, wearing nothing but beige with never a thought of sex or a flirt with madness, two things that seemed much more interesting,” she explains.

RELATED: Sally Field Was ‘Flattered’ Burt Reynolds Called Her the ‘Love of My Life’: He Was ‘Complicated’

The actress writes the executive producer of the show, Harry Ackerman, reached out to her stepfather in an attempt to convince her to take on the role.

She reveals Mahoney instilled fear in her when he turned up at her apartment unannounced and said, “If you don’t do this show, Sally, you may never work again.”

“Because of that, for three years I was the Flying Nun,” she says.

Field began binge eating after a bad breakup with high school boyfriend Steve Bloomfield.

Midway through working on The Flying Nun, Field said she broke up with Bloomfield after he criticized her work as an actress. What followed was a downward spiral with food and binge eating, which she says was her only consolation.

“On Saturdays, I would go into the recording studio or do a photo layout, then fill the rest of the day cooking and eating, trying to drown my loneliness in a vat of spaghetti with gobs of meat sauce and a whole chocolate cake, unable to stop eating even when I was in physical pain,” she writes. “And always I was alone, hiding in a closet of food.”

“I’d stick my fingers down my throat, longing for the relief of puking, but get nothing except a hacking, impotent gag,” she says. “I’d never heard of an eating disorder — no one talked about such things in the late sixties.”

Eventually, Field said she reached out to a doctor who “gave me a prescription for the only solution he had to offer — diet pills.”

“I was told to take on every morning, accompanied by a maximum-strength diuretic, wait thirty minutes and lo and behold — a jubilant, cotton-mouthed, babbling idiot who had to pee every two seconds,” Field writes.

She was allegedly asked by a director to take her shirt off and kiss him.

During an audition with director Bob Rafelson for the 1976 feature Stay Hungry, Field’s writes she was asked by him to take her shirt off and kiss him.

“In the midst of casually talking about the work, he told me to take my top off so he could see my breasts, saying since there was a nude scene in the film, he needed to figure out how to shoot me,” Field says. “Ignoring the sharp jab of emotion that shot through me, I removed my shirt as casually as he had made the request, then sat for his approval with my eyes closed — the only clue that those fingernails were clawing my insides.”

She continues, writing Rafelson told her, “Okay, Sal, the job is yours. But only after I see how you kiss. I can’t hire anyone who doesn’t kiss good enough.”

Field kissed him and got the job. When reached by The New York Times for a statement, Rafelson denied the allegations saying, “It’s totally untrue. That’s the first I’ve ever heard of this. I didn’t make anybody kiss me in order to get any part.”

In Pieces is now in bookstores.

All About Richard Gere’s 35-Year-Old Pregnant Wife Alejandra Silva

Richard Gere has found love again with new wife Alejandra Silva, and now they’re going to have a baby!

On Sunday, the 35-year-old activist announced in a photo with Gere, 69, and the Dalai Lama, 83, that the couple is expecting their first child together. (Gere has 18-year-old son Homer James Jigme with ex-wife Carey Lowell, 57, while Silva has a 5½-year-old son named Albert from a previous marriage.)

In April, the actor married the Spanish activist in a secret ceremony after first reconnecting in 2014 and dating since then. The two live together in New York and often pose together for her Instagram in sweet photos.

A source close to the couple told PEOPLE at the time that the two were “extraordinarily happy.”

“They’re so comfortable with each other, have fun together and are looking forward to their future together,” the insider told PEOPLE.

Gere and Silva kept the celebration going in May, throwing a wedding party on Cinco de Mayo at Gere’s estate in Pound Ridge, New York. A source told PEOPLE that the couple, both Buddhists, welcomed several Tibetan monks to the celebration.

Read on for what we know about Gere’s third wife.

They’ve known each other since she was young

Silva believes the universe is on her side when it comes to her relationship with the Pretty Woman star. The activist told Hola! in 2015 that Gere had been a family friend and they had known each other for over a decade. Silva said they were immediately attracted to each other the moment they reconnected years later.

“Our karma was attracted the moment we saw each other,” she said. “I’m not ignoring our age difference and what it means to be with a Hollywood star, but when there’s such a strong karmic energy, the problems disappear.”

Her dad is a successful businessman and soccer club VP

Silva’s dad, Ignacio Silva Botas, was the Vice President of Spanish soccer club Real Madrid from 1995-2000. Before that, Botas was a successful businessman who moved his family to Madrid when Silva was a child.

Silva ran in Madrid’s elite circles while she was young and attended some of the top private schools in the city. She also was close to Real Madrid players due to her dad’s affiliation and was romantically linked to player Roberto Carlos.

She runs a foundation to combat homelessness in Spain

Silva runs Rais Fundacion, a non-profit aiming to eradicate homelessness in Spain in five years (the word rais means roots in Spanish). The activist often speaks about her mission and told Hola! back in 2015 that she has gone method to understand the problems homeless people face in her country.

“I’ve slept on the street to understand the struggle of the homeless,” Silva said. “I’m not scared of rolling up my sleeves and diving into work. If I do something, I put 100% effort in. If I can’t I’d rather not do it.”

A post shared by Alejandra Gere (@alejandragere) on Dec 7, 2017 at 4:52am PST


Activism is a common passion the newly married couple share. The foundation hosted a screening of Gere’s movie The Dinner in December 2017 and he often attends events benefitting Rais with Silva. She told Hola! that Gere’s philanthropic instinct is one of the things that draws her to the actor.

“What I love most about him is his humanitarian side. He’s a very empathetic person,” she said.

She has a son from her previous marriage

Just like Gere, Silva has a son from her last marriage. She welcomed 5-year-old Albert in December 2012 with ex-husband Govin Friedland, the son of American billionaire Robert Martin Friedland. The couple used to reside in Italy with their son until divorcing in 2014.

Silva opened up about her long-distance relationship with Gere in 2015, revealing that the two would see each other when their kids were with their exes.

“It’s hard to coordinate, but we don’t go more than 20 days without seeing each other,” she told Hola!.

Silva has since moved to New York to live with Gere, where she posts pictures of the family out on walks. She even posted an adorable shot of Gere walking with Albert on his shoulders.

The two often get cozy on her Instagram

Silva’s Instagram is filled with loving shots of the two amidst her posts about her humanitarian work.

“So grateful to have you in my life, extraordinary and special human being, you have my life, making me see what is really important. Undeniable! love you with all my heart,” she wrote about her now-husband.

He’s got his pretty woman, and now it’s time for a little baby!

“A very special moment just a few minutes ago… Getting blessings for our precious to come,” penned Silva of an Instagram photo showing the Buddhist leader blessing her baby bump.

“We couldn’t announce it before telling HH Dalai Lama☺,” added the 35-year-old Spanish businesswoman and activist, who went on to share the message in her first language.

Gere and Silva had known each other for over a decade before they first began dating in 2014. In April, a source close to the couple told PEOPLE they married “weeks and weeks ago” and are “extraordinarily happy.”

“They’re so comfortable with each other, have fun together and are looking forward to their future together,” the insider revealed of Gere and Silva.

According to Spanish outlet HOLA!, who were the first to report the marriage news, the two wed in early April in a civil ceremony and planned to celebrate the nuptials at a party in New York City in early May with family and friends.

The resulting fête — held at Gere’s estate in Pound Ridge, New York — included several Tibetan monks (Gere is a Buddhist and one of son Homer’s middle names, Jigme, is a Tibetan name).

After news of their marriage broke, a film source who has known Gere for years told PEOPLE he “has been much happier in this half of his life because he is settled, confident and doing what he likes.”

“Practicing Buddhism and doing humanitarian work have fulfilled and transformed him, and he is at a stage when he can make the kinds of films that he likes,” the insider added of the Chicago star.

This is Gere’s third marriage. He first tied the knot with supermodel Cindy Crawford, to whom he was married from 1991 to 1995. The actor later welcomed his only son with second wife Lowell, whom he wed in 2002 before a contentious divorce that was finalized in 2016 after they separated in 2013.

Blake Lively Gives Husband Ryan Reynolds a Sweet Shout-Out in Her New Movie A Simple Favor

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have been known to openly troll each another on social media.

But throughout her twisty new thriller A Simple Favor, in which she stars alongside Anna Kendrick, Lively actually gives her husband a sweet nod — making sure her character, Emily, only drinks martinis made with Aviation Gin, the brand Reynolds owns.

Director Paul Feig (BridesmaidsSpy) explained the decision behind using the gin to Cosmopolitan. 

“At the time, I was trying to clear another gin, and Blake’s like, ‘Hey! Ryan’s got this gin that he really likes!‘ She really liked the company and everybody involved,” Feig, 55, recalled. “And I wouldn’t have done it if I didn’t like the look of it on the screen, but I really thought the bottle looked fantastic.”

“Honestly, didn’t even realize the level of involvement that had in it, but I think it’s great, because it’s a really good gin!” he added.

News broke back in February that Reynolds acquired a stake in the gin company, with him announcing that he would play an active role in the day-to-day business and oversee creative direction.

“I think it’s the best gin on the planet, and I mean that,” Reynolds, 41, said at an Aviation event in August. “I think more and more people are drinking gin. We have a really aggressive marketing campaign and we can back that up with a great product.”

Reynolds isn’t the first celebrity to get into the liquor business. Stars like George ClooneyChanning TatumDrake and Bethenny Frankel have also become owners of various spirits — but Reynolds says his decision to go into the business was purely personal.

“Like a lot of people, I’m inspired by George Clooney,” he said of the star who recently sold Casamigos tequila for $1 billion. “But it’s very unique to the individual. He’s probably in it for very different reasons than I am. We’re all passionate about it in varying shades. I know what drives me and what I love about this, so I don’t really need much more than that.”

Lively — who recently celebrated her sixth wedding anniversary with Reynolds, and shares daughters James, 3½, and Inez, 1½, with the actor — has been there by his side throughout, even attending the August event (dubbed an “Employee Orientation”) in New York City.

And though she looked happy to be there, posing lovingly with Reynolds for photographers, she couldn’t help but tease her husband about the event on Instagram — joking on her Instagram Stories that she was only at the soirée to sample the eats.

“The look on our faces — when you all go to a party just for the free food…” Lively wrote on a smiling selfie of herself and pals Jonathan Mark and Lizzie Tisch.

Paul Walker’s 45th Birthday Tribute Turns Violent as 2 Officers Were Allegedly Assaulted

A Paul Walker tribute ended in violence after the gathering turned into chaos on Wednesday night.

The actor, who would have turned 45 on Wednesday, was a car enthusiast who starred in several Fast and the Furious films before his death in November 2013 from a car accident.

A tribute to the actor was scheduled for Wednesday and ended up in the parking lot of the West Covina Plaza in West Covina, California.

The West Covina Police Department is investigating a felony vandalism to a mall security car, as well as an assault and battery case against two mall security officers, according to the department’s Facebook page.

Social media video of the incident shows one of the mall security officers being pushed in the back by a member of the crowd.

The officer, who is unnamed, can be seen pushing back which causes more people to surge against him. Others in the video can be seen attempting to break up the incident while yelling, “Relax!”

A different video shows people jumping onto the mall security vehicle and stomping on the hood and windshield.

Walker was also honored by his younger brother Cody who shared a heartfelt Instagram post on his birthday earlier this week.

“You would be 45 today bro,” Cody wrote in the caption. “We love you, miss you and try to honor you in the best ways we can. You were generous, thoughtful and a total badass. Always leading by actions rather than words and an inspiration to so many all over the world.”

Gibson, 39, wrote, “Happy 45th to a man who was ALL HEART!!!!!!!! It seems like yesterday I can’t wait to see you again I have so much to tell you bro……. God bless all the way!!”

OPEN POST: What is Your Favorite Movie or Franchise Theme Music?

A killer theme is as vital to the success of a big budget popcorn film as any other element on display. There’s got to be a triumphant fanfare or majestic introduction to welcome the audience into the world of the film. This is no time for subtlety or nuance, you’ve got to get the audience instantly fired up for what they’re about to witness.

There are some composers, like John Williams and Danny Elfman, who have made this a cottage industry. Others have nailed it on their first try. Some on their tenth try. And some on their only try.

As much as I would have loved to include them, no theme songs, so, sorry Ghostbusters 1 & 2 fans, as well as anyone pulling for a specific Bond song, or even advocates for Eminem’s Venom song. This is score only

I imagine the one that elbowed its way to the front of the line for most of you is John Williams’ Star Wars theme. This is sort of the go-to answer, but deservedly so. It’s amazing, it puts you in the right frame of mind for the adventure ahead. It’s the best of what a theme can be in that it more or less only exists over the opening and closing titles, and that’s not a knock against the rest of the music Williams created for Star Wars. It’s just that this particular piece is so far above all the others, it’s unfair to make the other music compete with it…


The brainchild of composer Monty Norman, later refined by his predecessor John Barry, the brass heavy James Bond theme has to be one of the first that leaps to mind. Every Bond film has opened with it—except 2006’s Casino Royale which saves it for the end—and it is as iconic as any theme ever. It’s a strong contender for anyone’s top spot.


On the more rapturous side of things is “The Godfather Waltz,” a somber, sobering piece of music that adequately prepares you for the melancholy to come in The Godfather films. Director Francis Ford Coppola handed the job to Italian composer Nino Rota, who created some memorable themes for Fellini’s 8 1/2 and Bertolucci’s Romeo & Juliet. Kicked off by a lone horn, the theme grows from there into an old world waltz that never leaves your head throughout the film.


“When is he gonna bring up Bill Conti’s ‘Gonna Fly Now’ from Rocky, bro?” If we were doing theme songs, “Eye of the Tiger” would be a fierce competitor for the title, as is the amazing fanfare that starts this immortal theme from the Rocky movies. Conti is another Bond veteran, Conti lost the Oscar for this theme, but won it several years later for The Right Stuff. This is as iconic and immortal as themes get.


Howard Shore’s scores for Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings films are as integral to their success as all the other technical elements. It won Shore three Oscars for his efforts and propelled into the upper echelon as a result of his excellent work. Watch the movies again and try to imagine getting anywhere near as emotional in certain moments without that score.


Elfman’s got a lot of these, and of course his Simpsons theme is every bit as iconic as anything else he’s done, but his 1989 Batman score remains his Mount Everest. The theme that Elfman created hasn’t been usurped in nearly thirty years of trying via many other Batman movies. He replaced the 1966 Batman theme in our heads, and most remarkably of all, nothing has yet to replace his theme as the definitive Batman music.


Here’s a strange one, but one that I felt merited consideration nonetheless as it meets all the criteria…


Alan Silvestri’s greatest composition remains the Back to the Future theme music, another rousing theme used repeatedly throughout the films to generate an emotional response…


Of course, Indiana Jones is another great John Williams one…


As is E.T…




Jurassic Park…


The list goes on.

For me, my favorite has always been one from my childhood. Henry Mancini’s jazz theme for Blake Edwards’ The Pink Panther remains my personal pick for favorite movie or franchise theme music. It’s the epitome of cool and very much established the tone for the film. Plus, it’s become ingrained in all our brains thanks to its use in the cartoon that followed.

So let’s hear it. What’s your favorite? If you guys like this, we can do TV themes next time.

Padma Lakshmi Says ‘Stop Bullying Susan Sarandon’ Amid Sarandon’s Twitter War with Debra Messing

Padma Lakshmi is standing with her friend Susan Sarandon.

After the Thelma & Louise actress, 71, renewed her feud with Debra Messing and received further backlash from commenters criticizing her support of a third-party candidate in the 2016 presidential election, Lakshmi urged followers to consider others’ opinions and lay off Sarandon.

“I’ve known @SusanSarandon for a decade,” Lakshmi, 48, tweeted on Friday. “There are very few actresses who are such dedicated humanitarians and activists. Instead of vilifying someone for endorsing a third party candidate in 2016, why not focus on what you’re doing in your community to create change?”

Sarandon got behind Green Party candidate Jill Stein in 2016, and earned criticism for indirectly supporting Donald Trump by not voting for Democrat Hillary Clinton. Lakshmi, however, endorsed Clinton during the last presidential election cycle.


“Sometimes we have different opinions than our friends or people in our industry but it’s important to have a dialogue to learn and grow,” the Top Chef host continued in a second tweet. “This ‘cancel’ culture and progressive infighting isn’t the solution. Stop bullying Susan.”

RELATED VIDEO: Susan Sarandon Was Arrested while Protesting Trump’s Immigration Policy in Washington D.C

Messing and Sarandon’s long-running feud was recently reignited when Messing, 50, tweeted “STFU SUSAN” earlier this week after Sarandon told Variety that she believed Donald Trump’s presidency had inspired more women to run for office.


“STFU SUSAN,” Messing tweeted. “Oh yes, PLEASE let’s give Trump CREDIT. I mean how else are you able to walk out on the street. Convince yourself that that this CATASTROPHE of a President who you said was better that IS NOT ripping children away from parents seeking asylum.”

Sarandon responded, writing “Debs, before you get yourself all self-righteous try clicking on the video and listening to what I actually say, not @Variety’s clickbait headline”.

The women continued to swipe at each other through retweets. Messing retweeted a tweet that read: “ seems perfectly happy at the suffering of others. Kids in cages.”

Sarandon continued to stand up for her comments to Variety, writing “I understand why @Variety’s clickbait headline would be upsetting, but after you actually watch the video, you’ll see that’s not what I said. Now that you’re riled up, use that energy to call Collins, Murkowski & those Dem Senators still on the fence & tell them to #StopKavanaugh”, referring to the ongoing confirmation hearings for the new Supreme Court Justice.

Robert Redford Opens Up About Retiring from Acting: ‘I Can’t Last Forever’

Don’t ask Robert Redford to stick around forever.

The veteran actor, 82, opened up about his decision to retire while promoting his latest film The Old Man and the Gun at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival on Monday.

Redford, who spoke to Variety, said while he’s not sure his new film is the last one for him he knows for certain the end of the road is near.

I can’t last forever,” he told the outlet.

The Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid addressed his decision to retire in late August at the Telluride Film Festival.

“The truth is that I really do feel that it’s time for me to move into retirement,” Redford said at the time. “I’ve been doing this since I was 21. I’ve put my soul and heart into it over the years. I thought, ‘That’s enough. Why don’t you quit while you’re a little bit ahead? Don’t wait for the bell to toll. Just get out.’”

He added, “So I felt my time had come and I couldn’t think of a better project to go out on than this film.”

The actor revealed to Entertainment Weekly in early August that he was retiring from acting saying, “Never say never, but I pretty well concluded that this would be it for me in terms of acting, and move towards retirement after this ‘cause I’ve been doing it since I was 21.”

“I thought, ‘Well, that’s enough.’ And why not go out with something that’s very upbeat and positive?” he added.

Redford made his Broadway debut in 1959 in Tall Story and hit the small screen with various roles in 1960. In the illustrious career that has followed, Redford has earned two Oscars, six Golden Globes, and one BAFTA, among several other accolades. He has starred in dozens of films, including Butch Cassidy and the Sundance KidThe StingThe Great GatsbyAll the President’s Men, and Out of Africa.

He has directed critically acclaimed movies like A River Runs Through It and Ordinary People, and he founded the Sundance Institute.

Ben Affleck Is ‘Doing Great’ in Rehab, His Brother Casey Affleck Says

Casey Affleck opened up about Ben Affleck‘s return to rehab on Monday.

While walking the Toronto International Film Festival red carpet for the premiere of his new film, The Old Man and the Gun, the 43-year-old Oscar winner gave an update on his brother to Entertainment Tonight. 

“He’s doing great,” the actor said. “He’s in rehab and he’s recovering and seems to be doing well.”

PEOPLE confirmed Affleck, 46, entered a rehab facility in Malibu for alcohol addiction on Aug. 22. “He is seeking treatment. He knew he needed help and was vocal about it,” a source said.

By his side was ex Jennifer Garner, who arrived at his home with an addiction therapist. Garner, also 46, drove the actor to the treatment center the same day.

Leading up to Affleck seeking treatment, an insider told PEOPLE, “Ben had been drinking alone for days. He was in bad shape. He had barely been eating and had not showered. It didn’t take much convincing. He wanted to go, and he cooperated.”

He had also been spotted out with 22-year-old Playboy model Shauna Sexton, who he has been seeing since his split from ex-Lindsay Shookus.

On Sunday, Sexton was spotted leaving the treatment facility Ben has been staying at. She drove his Ford SUV to the center and has been spotted driving the vehicle since last week.

Sexton’s car has been seen at Ben’s house while the actor returns home to work out with a basketball trainer during the day.

He looks much better and seems healthier,” a source previously told PEOPLE.

Ryan Phillippe Shares Photo with His and Reese Witherspoon’s Mini-Me Children

Contrary to what you might think, you’re not seeing double!

A day ahead of Ryan Phillippe‘s 44th birthday, the actor spent time with his two teenage children and shared an adorable, sepia-toned photo of the trio on Instagram.

In the shot posted on Sunday, Phillippe sits between daughter Ava, 19 (whose birthday was also on Sunday, a day before her dad’s) and son Deacon, 14, both of whom he shares with ex-wife Reese Witherspoon.

In the snap, the kids lovingly lean their heads in toward their dad and smile.

Phillippe, who captioned the post “me n mine 🖤”, can be seen with his arm around Deacon — who looked and dressed just like his dad with square-rimmed black glasses, casual t-shirt, and a similar hairstyle.

While Deacon is the spitting image of his father, Ava is her mom’s clone.

Immediately after the Shooter actor posted the photo, the Internet went into a tizzy, with fans commenting in disbelief how the children looked exactly like a younger version of Phillippe and Witherspoon.

This isn’t the first time that fans have drawn comparisons between the parents and their kids. On Sunday, in honor of Ava’s birthday, Witherspoon posted a shot of her daughter on Instagram.

The image was enough to draw countless comments about their resemblance, with many users referring to the mother-daughter duo as “twins” or questioning if the photo was actually a throwback picture of Witherspoon.

The 42-year-old producer also revealed last year that Ava is often mistaken for her at events and premieres.

“People come up to her . We were at a premiere and they were congratulating her on her performance,” Witherspoon told E! News. “She’s like, ‘I’m not in the movie.'”

Since divorcing in 2006, Phillippe and Witherspoon have mutually co-parented their children. The couple were together for seven years before splitting, but have maintained a positive relationship, even as the Big Little Lies star moved on and married Jim Toth in 2011.

Following their divorce, Phillippe told Ellen DeGeneres during a guest appearance on her show that things between him and his ex-wife were working out well, despite some occasional juggling of parental responsibilities.

“It is so important as divorced parents to keep that connection,” he said in 2010. “It makes the kids feel better that the parents are interacting. We go to all the school events together, and we’re there for each other.”

Added Phillippe: “From one week to the next, you don’t know where you’re going to have to be for a promotional tour or on location. We’ve done a really good job with that, and our kids are happy and healthy and doing awesome.”

Jamie Lee Curtis on How the New Halloween Relates to the #MeToo Era

The new Halloween picks up 40 years after the John Carpenter original, and in some ways, things haven’t changed: Michael Meyers is still terrorizing teenagers on Halloween night, and he’s still creeping around in that mask.

But one thing isn’t the same is Laurie Strode. In David Gordon Green’s new filmJamie Lee Curtis’ original scream queen has become a mother and a grandmother — and when Michael breaks out of prison and returns to Haddonfield, she’s waiting for him. It’s a story about chills and thrills and an insane mass murderer, sure, but it’s also a story about a woman taking back control of her own life.

“Ultimately as we are learning in so many areas, women are trying to take back the narrative in their own lives from men who have abused them, in myriad ways,” Curtis said Saturday and PEOPLE and EW’s TIFF studio. “And this is just one example of it.”

Four decades later, Laurie has a daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and a granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak), and although neither was alive the first time Michael went on a killing spree, the repercussions of that night still affect them.

“I don’t know if 40 years ago I would have ever thought that Laurie Strode would have a daughter, let alone a granddaughter,” Curtis said. “I just don’t think I ever took it that far. Trauma is a generational disease because it affects everybody in the family. So that’s what I think is so exciting about . They’ve explored that through the relationships between mother, daughter, granddaughter.”

Halloween will hit theaters Oct. 19. Watch the full interview with Curtis above.

Denise Richards Marries ‘Love of My Life’ Aaron Phypers in Intimate Malibu Wedding

Surprise! Denise Richards and Aaron Phypers got married just two days after PEOPLE exclusively announced their engagement.

The whirlwind wedding took place Saturday in Malibu, with the bride and groom’s closest family and friends in attendance.

Next season, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will include footage of the wedding, some of which Bravo released Saturday.

“Hi, I’m Denise Richards, and yep, the rumors are true: This is my husband Aaron, and we just got married,” said the actress, 47, who joined RHOBH for the show’s upcoming ninth season.

( function() { var func = function() { var iframe_form = document.getElementById('wpcom-iframe-form-885a7ba473ee9d8e59629eb8c38f791f-5b94871e851d7'); var iframe = document.getElementById('wpcom-iframe-885a7ba473ee9d8e59629eb8c38f791f-5b94871e851d7'); if ( iframe_form && iframe ) { iframe_form.submit(); iframe.onload = function() { iframe.contentWindow.postMessage( { 'msg_type': 'poll_size', 'frame_id': 'wpcom-iframe-885a7ba473ee9d8e59629eb8c38f791f-5b94871e851d7' }, window.location.protocol + '//wpcomwidgets.com' ); } } // Autosize iframe var funcSizeResponse = function( e ) { var origin = document.createElement( 'a' ); origin.href = e.origin; // Verify message origin if ( 'wpcomwidgets.com' !== origin.host ) return; // Verify message is in a format we expect if ( 'object' !== typeof e.data || undefined === e.data.msg_type ) return; switch ( e.data.msg_type ) { case 'poll_size:response': var iframe = document.getElementById( e.data._request.frame_id ); if ( iframe && '' === iframe.width ) iframe.width = '100%'; if ( iframe && '' === iframe.height ) iframe.height = parseInt( e.data.height ); return; default: return; } } if ( 'function' === typeof window.addEventListener ) { window.addEventListener( 'message', funcSizeResponse, false ); } else if ( 'function' === typeof window.attachEvent ) { window.attachEvent( 'onmessage', funcSizeResponse ); } } if (document.readyState === 'complete') { func.apply(); /* compat for infinite scroll */ } else if ( document.addEventListener ) { document.addEventListener( 'readystatechange', function(){ if (document.readyState === 'complete') { func.apply(); } }, false ); } else if ( document.attachEvent ) { document.attachEvent( 'onreadystatechange', func ); } } )();

Richards beamed as he added, “We’re married. Love you, baby.”

Then the couple leaned in for a kiss in front of a large floral arrangement and the ocean.

“I am so happy to officially be married to the love of my life,” Richards told Bravo’s The Daily Dish of the nuptials. “I can’t wait for everyone to go on this incredible journey with me this season on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. It has been a wild ride so far!”

“Denise and Aaron just want a small group of people to be at the wedding, really just their inner circle,” a source told PEOPLE after the engagement. “They’ve both done this before and this time just want to exchange vows in front of the people who are most important.”

The couple began dating in December 2017. Phypers finalized his divorce from Desperate Housewives star Nicollette Sheridan last month — two years after they separated following just six months of marriage.

Richards was married to Charlie Sheen from 2002-06, and they share two daughters: Sam, 14, and Lola, 13. (She is also mom to daughter Eloise, 7.)

In recent weeks, the Wild Things actress has been photographed filming the Bravo reality show, which is expected to premiere before the end of the year.

“She and Aaron are extremely happy, and he’s definitely game with her on-camera persona,” the source said. “He’s on board with the drama that the show might bring, and Denise is a total pro with this. She’s done it before and knows how to navigate life on and off camera even when the show gets blurred with reality. He seems to care for her in a real way and is up for whatever she throws at him and vice versa. They’re a good team.”

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra Reveal Their Hilarious and Very Cheeky Celebrity Couple Nickname

Over the years, celebrity couples have acquired playful nicknames. From KimYe to Brangelina the list goes on.

Now that Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas are engaged, it’s only fitting that they have one too.

On Friday, Jonas, 25, stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to dish on his romance with Chopra, 36, and his latest song “Right Now,” which he performed at the end of the show.

“Do you guys have a celebrity nickname?” Jimmy Fallon asked the young singer. “Oh boy,” Jonas said before answering. Fallon, 43, then directed the question to Chopra, who was backstage.

“Prick!” Chopra yelled, causing the audience to erupt with laughter.

“She likes prick,” Jonas said. “I don’t like that one that much.”

Jonas told Fallon that he was quick to propose to Chopra as he knew she was the one right away.

“It was immediate. We knew it was right and just kind of jumped right in,” the singer said.

Earlier in the show, Jonas gushed over his and Chopra’s engagement party in Mumbai, India. He explained the party was a “Roka Ceremony,” which is basically an event where both families come together to approve the engagement.

The Roka took place in August and Jonas’ parents Denise and Kevin Sr. were both in attendance. For the affair, Chopra wore a bright yellow Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla Couture suit. Jonas also opted for a traditional Indian ensemble.

It was also at this party that Jonas and Chopra confirmed their engagement. The lovebirds each posted adorable Instagrams, which showed the couple sweetly gazing into the other’s eyes.

“Future Mrs. Jonas. My heart. My love,” Jonas wrote.

Chopra quickly followed behind with “Taken.. With all my heart and soul.”

Chopra also shared additional photos from the ceremony, which included shots of Jonas’ parents with her mother Madhu and her brother Siddharth.

Jonas proposed to Chopra while the two were in London for her birthday in July, PEOPLE confirmed.

Jonas even closed down a Tiffany store to buy an engagement ring, a source previously told PEOPLE.

“They are so happy,” the source added.

Ryan Reynolds Is in a Serious Twitter Beef With Paddington Bear

Deadpool may be able to immediately heal from pretty much any wound, but Ryan Reynolds needs to remember he doesn’t have that same power in real life before he messes with bears on the Internet. Reynolds, completely unprovoked, decided to just come for a bear when he was celebrating his People’s Choice Award nominations.

That takes some serious balls. You don’t mess with bears. Did you see what a bear did to Leonardo DiCaprio in The Revenant? I’ll give you a hint: the bear was Asia Argento and Leo was Jimmy Bennett (allegedly). Man, two days ago I’d have used Harvey Weinstein for that punchline.

Well, Hugh Bonneville is British, no one is afraid of them unless they’re also bears. He’s powerless ever since Downton Abbey ended and all his servants were released into the wild, anyway. Maybe Ryan is safe.

I told you not to fuck with bears. Maybe Paddington didn’t notice this though.

Oh snap, you better be able to run faster than T.J. Miller, Ryan. He’s coming for you. You’re going to be pulling tiny Wellingtons out of the deepest reaches of your anus now.

Oscars Popular Category Is Not Popular So More

The Oscars popular film category bombed at the box office and has already been dropped.

Last week, the Oscars announced a new Popular Film category so all those superhero films didn’t feel left out on Oscars night. The move was met with backlash with many complaining that the Academy was “pandering to pedestrians” and that it would ruin whatever prestige the Oscars have left in 2018.

As a result, the Oscars pandered to the high society white people and removed the category. Here’s what Academy CEO Dawn Hudson had to say:

“There has been a wide range of reactions to the introduction of a new award, and we recognize the need for further discussion with our members. The Academy recognized that implementing any new award nine months into the year creates challenges for films that have already been released. The Academy continues to be actively engaged in discussions, and will examine and seek additional input regarding this category. We have made changes to the Oscars over the years—including this year—and we will continue to evolve while also respecting the incredible legacy of the last 90 years.”

Well, that clears up that.

They are right in saying that announcing the award nine months into the year was a mistake. If you’re going to make the announcement, do it at the awards show itself. Tease some big announcement and then deliver with a new category, leaving fans more disappointed than the host’s opening monologue.

Oscar ratings have declined over the years, which is why the Academy wanted to include your more simple-minded films. Fans don’t care about people fucking fish. They want robots fighting each other and destroying cities. It was always a slippery slope because had this category been around a few years ago, Batman vs. Superman 100 percent would have won as Oscar. Not because it was good, but because it was about a silver spoon white guy who found common ground with an outcast white guy based on nothing but the shared name of their mother.

Oscar voters love that shit.

Burt Reynolds Was Embarrassed by His Infamous Nude Cosmopolitan Shoot: ‘What an Egomaniac’

In 1972, Burt Reynolds, who died on Sept. 6 at age 82, agreed to pose completely naked for Helen Gurley Brown’s Cosmopolitan magazine — a move that he has said wasn’t a big deal, despite it turning him into a massive sex symbol.

“I didn’t know there was going to be a commotion about it,” he told Steve Harvey in March, 2018. “It wasn’t a big deal to me. I said, “I’ll do it, but I’ll have to have my hands…in front of me.”

Reynolds, then making a joke about the size of his manhood, added, “And I have very small hands.”

During the same month, Reynolds, who later battled an addiction to painkillers in 2009, told Conan O’Brien that he was really drunk for the shoot.

“I was so drunk,” he said. “Oh I was plastered. I started drinking very early in the morning, and I went out and they said, ‘In the first scene you’ll  be doing such and such.’ I said, ‘You said I’d just be lying on the couch…I’m not taking my clothes off. I’ll come in, throw the robe off, and you roll.’ And he did.”

He also revealed in 2017 during an appearance on Yahoo!’s The Katie Couric Interview that he “shuddered” when he looked back on the infamous shoot.

“I mean what an a–,” he continued. “What an egomaniac that would do something like that.”

When Couric pressed Reynolds to explain why he regretted the shoot so much, he added, “I didn’t have to do that. But people thought you had to do it because it, you know, caused a little fuss and all that and I enjoyed that, but I didn’t enjoy doing it.”

In his 1994 memoir, My Life, Reynolds said that it was strange how women reacted to him after the centerfold was published.

“Standing ovations turned into burlesque show hoots and catcalls,” he wrote. “They cared more about my pubes than they did the play.”

The Academy Pumps the Breaks on Their Proposed ‘Popular Film’ Oscar

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has made many changes to their annual Oscar awards over the years, but one they proposed adding this year backfired in spectacular fashion. You see, in recent years, the Academy has made a desperate stab at relevancy, chiefly by increasing the number of Best Picture nominees in hopes that its voting bloc would nominate more commercially successful films.

This approach hasn’t worked all that well. In fact, any time the Academy attempts to do something to broaden their commercial appeal, it ends up being rightly and roundly rejected by the general public. You see, people either love the Oscars or they don’t, and no lineup of Best Picture nominees is going to swindle Joe Sixpack in to tuning in to the show.

Nevertheless, the Academy pressed on with a new idea this year that involved adding a new category called Best Popular Film. This seemed, to them anyway, like a great way to honor movies like Black Panther or The Incredibles 2 that made a ton of money but wouldn’t make the cut for Best Picture in your average cinema-going year.

It was a stupid idea and now the Academy has decided to table it for the time being. In a press release, Academy CEO Dawn Hudson states…

“There has been a wide range of reactions to the introduction of a new award, and we recognize the need for further discussion with our members. We have made changes to the Oscars over the years — including this year — and we will continue to evolve while also respecting the incredible legacy of the last 90 years.”

Sure. We get it, you goofed and now you’ve gotta fix the goof. Word to the wise, shelve this idea permanently. Nothing is going to entice the average moviegoer into watching the Oscars, short of the prospect of them receiving an award for watching.

The Red-Haired Actor from Princess Diaries Is Now a Stud on Chicago P.D.

Princess Diaries might be known for Anne Hathaway‘s incredible transformation in the beginning of the movie — but it’s her costar Patrick John Flueger who’s turning heads now.

The actor, now 32, was 17 when he starred in the 2001 movie alongside Hathaway, Julie Andrews and Mandy Moore as Jeremiah, the red-haired magician who is best friends with Heather Matarazzo’s character. And while Jeremiah was a bit of a loser at school, Flueger has since grown into a stud — similar to Harry Potter star Neville Longbottom. The Daily Mail was first to report on his appearance.

After Princess Diaries, Flueger went on to have minor roles in a few TV shows before landing as a main character on the CBS show The 4400 alongside now-Oscar winner Mahershala Ali. Flueger played Shawn Farrell for four seasons between 2004-2007.

After the show, he did more TV and films before booking a main role on Chicago P.D., the procedural created by Dick Wolf that’s part of the Chicago franchise.

Flueger stars as Adam Ruzek, a police officer in the Intelligence Unit of the Chicago Police Department. He made his first appearance in the pilot and has since grown to have a central role on the show.

Chicago P.D.’s fifth season starts Sept. 26 on NBC.

Mark Wahlberg’s Intense Fitness Routine Involves a Cryo Chamber That’s 150 Degrees Below Zero

Mark Wahlberg‘s fitness regimen is cooler than ever — literally.

The 47-year-old actor shared on Ellen on Tuesday that his latest strategy to help his body recover from intense workouts is spending time in a cryotherapy chamber, or a small room kept, in his case, at 150 degrees below zero. Dressed in a mask, gloves, socks, hat and underwear, the Mile 22 star walks around and listens to music in the intense conditions for three minutes, the maximum amount experts will allow.

He also told the comedian and talk show host that there’s another facility in Columbus, Ohio, he tried, and it gets so cold that he was required to cover his nipples before entering.

Always curious, DeGeneres, 60, asked him about how “his stuff” survives the temperature, and he responded, “It shrivels up a little. It’s okay, it comes back to normal,” before adding that the cold removes inflammation and can improve sleep.

The fitness fanatic regularly shares the quirks of his routine on social media. On Wednesday morning, he posted a video of himself refueling after his 3:45 a.m. work out. He listed everything he was eating that day — including meatballs at 8 a.m. and grilled chicken with Kalamata olives two and a half hours later — and that he would be hitting the hay at 6:30 that evening.

4am workout ☑ now time to refuel. On another note, I’m proud of all of you guys that are sticking to the program. Let’s keep it going and push ourselves to be better! @performinspired @chef_lawrence_d

In December 2017, the Ted star broke down the lifestyle habits with Men’s Health that he was relying on to get down to 6 percent body fat.

“I don’t play basketball anymore because I don’t want to roll an ankle and miss a movie or screw up my golf game,” he said. “I’m doing twice a day and jumping rope. If I wake up at 3:30, I can go to the golf course at 6:30, be done by 8:30, and then be home and then do the rest of my stuff: work with a physiotherapist, get treatment, hit the cryo chamber.”

Despite the specific nature of his personal approach, Wahlberg still tries to inspire his fans. “The only way to be the best is to keep working like you got nothing,” he told the magazine. “Keep getting after it, and be more and more aggressive, more and more focused every day. I don’t know. I have more drive and desire now than I ever have.”
