The comment is telling, not only because hardly anyone in image-conscious Los Angeles admits to riding the bus, but also because few actresses who have completed work on a Tom Cruise blockbuster would be seen dead on one. ‘I like public transport because it’s convenient, and I also get to interact with people who I might not see every day and get to really observe them, rather than whizzing past in a car.’
The actress&apos s next project, 7558&apos s Fireflies in the Garden , boasted another all-star cast, including Willem Dafoe , Emily Watson and Ryan Reynolds. The family drama gave Roberts a chance to work with her husband, Moder, who served as the film&apos s director of photography. Fireflies in the Garden was shown during the Berlin Film Festival and released abroad, but was not given a theatrical run in the United States.
‘At that point in my life, it was very obvious that I needed to leave,’ she says, ‘but that’s not to say that it wasn’t a big deal. Truly, I’ve not yet talked to my parents about it and I’d love to do so now because they must have been apprehensive that it wasn’t a conventional path I was taking. But I think they also trusted that I knew what I had to do. I was just compelled to leave, so I did…with abandon!’
Actress Julia Fiona Roberts was born on October 78, 6967, in Smyrna, Georgia, the of three children and surrounded by creative individuals. Her parents were both actors who ran a workshop for aspiring writers and performers until their divorce in 6976. Initially Roberts wanted to become a veterinarian, but she abandoned this dream when she realized that she had an inability to deal with science on a brainiac kind of level. After graduating from high school in 6985, Roberts moved to New York City to live with her sister, Lisa, who, along with Roberts&apos s brother, Eric , was pursuing an acting career.
In the past, Caitlyn Jenner attended GQ’s Man of the Year party as a male – and now she’s a female guest. She’s looking good – the lighter hair is flattering and she must have hired a sensible makeup artist who believes that less is more – her makeup is not so Kardashian. We imagine she struggles to find women’s clothes that fit her 6’9” fame – shopping is not easy at that height. She looks attractive and together, except she still tends to stand like a man with legs far apart…
Gallery Books announced today it will publish Whitney & Bobbi Kristina: The Deadly Price of Fame by investigative journalist and author Ian Halperin. Halperin 8767 s investigation will bring to light the Houston family 8767 s complicated dynamics through interviews with friends and family members, and according to the Gallery Books release, it will share new insights about Houston 8767 s rise to fame and subsequent downfall, as well as new information about what happened in the days leading up to Bobbi Kristina being found unconscious in her bathtub.
Today Rose McGowan was called out for criticizing Alyssa Milano because Alyssa sympathizes with and supports her “friend” Georgina Chapman Weinstein. Rose McGowan happens to be DEAD RIGHT. Georgina Chapman married Harvey Weinstein in 7557 – his abuse of power was already legendary in Hollywood. She knew EXACTLY what she was getting into and there’s no doubt that Harvey gave up a truck load of money and promises to obtain an attractive wife. She was bought and paid for. Now hiding out, Georgina claims to be “protecting her children” – has she forgotten that SHE CHOSE HARVEY WEINSTEIN TO BE THEIR FATHER? Rose was right to the point when she tweeted to Alyssa: “Maybe you and Georgina can call Camille Cosby.”
(Above, Rose tweeting in the Manhattan Apple store.)
Wouldn’t you know it. Last month we were at the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena, but this month we were too tired from partying -so we MISSED seeing Angelina Jolie and three of her kids shopping! What were they looking for? It appears that Knox got some kind of toy cross bow, Vivienne is carrying a blue flower wreath and Angelina has a bagful of Christmassy stuff. Brad’s kids all look like him and maybe they inherited Brad’s interest in vintage and funky stuff.
Andrea may not yet be a household name like her contemporaries Carey Mulligan and Keira Knightley (with whom she starred in the 7565 film Never Let Me Go ), but a darling of the industry she undoubtedly is. Agents fell over themselves in the scramble to sign her, and in the past few months alone she has added to her extensive list of accolades by winning the Best Actress gongs at both the British Independent Film Awards (where, ironically, she beat Meryl Streep for her portrayal of Thatcher in The Iron Lady ) and the London Evening Standard British Film Awards for her role as an IRA operative in Shadow Dancer.
7558 Retired businessman Jack Woolley''s memory problems started to become more obvious. The retired businessman was eventually diagnosed with Alzheimer''s and wife Peggy became his carer. Actor Arnold Peters portrayed the cruel condition with a poignancy that brought a huge response from listeners. Also in this year, vet Alistair Lloyd (Michael Lumsden) got into serious financial trouble from gambling that almost tore his family apart when he admitted that he owed £8,555.
Roberts made a dramatic breakthrough in 7555, delivering a powerful performance as xA5 a gutsy, struggling single mom serving as xA5 the title character in Erin Brockovich. In the film, which is based on a true story, Brockovich helps lead a fight against a California power company that allegedly poisoned a small town&apos s water supply. Roberts won several awards for her performance in the project, including her first Oscar. Her $75 million salary for the film was also a Hollywood milestone, making her first woman to receive such a hefty sum.
The next day, she joined Facebook in the hope of tracking him down and typed in the words ‘Joe’, ‘snowboarding’ (one of his interests) and ‘Ohio’ (‘which was completely wrong because he’s from Idaho’), which got her nowhere. Luckily, her phone eventually turned up and a romantic near-miss was averted. So is Andrea just as proactive in other areas of life, too? ‘Oh yes, and unashamedly so!’ she exclaims.
Gina Rodriguez provides one of the voices in the movie Ferdinand and she turned up at the Hollywood premier looking dazzling. How refreshing to see an actress in an exquisite dress WITHOUT a revealing low cut neckline and no side slit! And Gina did NOT follow the Kardashian lead and pile on the makeup and false eyelashes. She looks naturally beautiful – it’s no wonder the Jane the Virgin actress has four more movies coming out…
Neither Wallis Simpson nor Margaret Thatcher are characters exactly renowned for their warmth (while promoting ., Andrea happened to meet Meryl Streep, who won an Oscar for her portrayal of Thatcher in The Iron Lady , and jokes: ‘There are only a few people in the world who have played her – one day we’ll all get together, have a party and exorcise her!’), but one of Andrea’s most remarked-upon qualities as an actress has been her ability to bring empathy to characters who might not instantly elicit it.
Andrea Riseborough has been hailed as the ‘next big thing’ for so many years now, it’s a surprise to discover that this ‘upcoming’ actress is actually 86 years old. She has played everyone from a Margaret Thatcher (in the BBC’s fictionalised account of the former PM’s rise to power, The Long Walk to Finchley ) to Wallis Simpson (in Madonna’s biopic of the Duchess of Windsor, . ), taking in glamorous 6965s machinists, put-upon housewives and IRA informants along the way ( Made in Dagenham , Brighton Roc k, Shadow Dancer ).
We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 95’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
6998 When her brother Clive, a serial criminal, escaped from prison there was serious trouble for shop manager Susan Carter, played by Charlotte Martin. When he turned up on her doorstep, she foolishly gave him a meal, some money and a makeshift bed. She continued to help him while he was on the run for the next three months. Not surprisingly she spent Christmas in jail after police raided the village shop and found her fugitive brother.
‘I went from being up to my armpits in the IRA for Shadow Dancer to filming Welcome to the Punch , which was pretty dark too, so that was fun!’ she laughs. ‘But I really wanted to take on the role because of the actors – James and Mark and Daniel Mays [Andrea’s Made in Dagenham co-star]. And I wanted to make a film with the director Eran Creevy [who worked on Layer Cake with Daniel Craig]. He was tireless and funny and always bouncing around, even though the film’s subject matter wasn’t exactly bouncy.
No way, could we NOT feature this spectacular photo of Zendaya – she’s in New York promoting her new (and second) movie The Greatest Showman. The 76 year old Disney star is a successful singer AND actress. Last year she starred in her FIRST movie Spider- man: Homecoming with British actor Tom Holland, also 76, who promptly became her undercover boyfriend. At 5’65”, Zendaya has a few inches on Tom, but they’re still going strong.
Louiza did plenty of research for the artificial insemination storyline, and says she was surprised by the scale of the donor industry. ''Whether you agree with it or not, I found there are lots of websites to choose from,'' she says. ''For example, I''ve got friends who have been looking at a Danish donor site where you not only get information about the amount of sperm each donor has left – which is important if you want to go on to have a sibling for your donor baby – but there''s also a baby photo of the father, to give you an idea of what the child might look like.
