So that immediately puts you aside from everybody else. My family was solidly middle class. But is he a benevolent narcissist? There is the element with the stars that I look up to as being larger than life and being unashamed about it. They are approachable and down to earth.
He is larger than life yet approachable and unashamed. If I do another version at some point, the show will be almost exclusively on me and my wife. Everybody is either married, wants to be married or had a bad marriage. But in terms of society, in terms of happiness, health, wellbeing, in terms of success nothing beats it. These are all the things that may or may not be true, that get in the way. The key to it all is the same thing that Alfred Hitchcock said when he was asked what was the key to a hit movie.
And I was great at casting. Do you know the phrase the picker is broken? What if you let other people pick you? For instance, one can be intimate sexually with someone and not love that person and vice versa.
More a chink in his steadfastness. A chink that says he always knows the right thing but sometimes he struggles. People may be able to grow and change and work on themselves too and not make the same mistakes over and over.
Maybe being in recovery is part of the magic because people who are recovering alcoholics have been forced to rock bottom and are forced to talk openly about themselves and to themselves. Worse than painful, it can be boring. But if I look at the lengths I used to go to to find some bad behaviour, I should be able to go to those lengths to make my life better. Of course, he would never do such a thing now but the fact that he once did makes him much more human. Fascinated by the post Brexit world.
When I was in Africa I was out of the cable news cycle. I had broken my addiction for news and I feel the better for it. I remember vividly at the height of my teen idol phase walking the streets of London in the midday sun and it was crickets. I was used to walking down the street having my clothes ripped off. I walked in London in anonymity. No one ripped his clothes off?
Well I have to go now. The songs could be love songs although the album Walls is a mixture of love and anger. Around her neck is a beautiful miniature of her now departed dog Sammy, a Coton du Tolear. The white curly fluffy dog went with her to every interview, every concert and recording session. She identified with her intensely. So much so that two of her new dogs Miss Scarlet and Miss Violet are clones of Sammy and a third, Fanny is a distant cousin.
We meet in a studio just across the road from her house in Malibu — the one with the rose gardens and her collection of dolls houses. The two dogs are made from Sammy. This is the technique — how they make clones which is used in cancer research.
The pet fund wrote me a letter that said thank you for doing this. Cancer is very prevalent and growing in both cats and dogs because of the pet food industry, the pesticides etc… Nobody had to die to make a clone.
You can get none, you can get five and I got two. The breeder told me she was a rarity because she was a runt. If these dogs are for shows they have straight hair. Sammy was at my last show in New York — it was such a rarity to get a curly haired one so in order to have a curly haired dog I had to clone Sammy.
Perhaps Sammy reminded her of herself in that. Samantha is now around her neck close to her heart forever. I have a lock of her hair in my other locket. We have both got dead pets round our neck. Momentarily she seems vulnerable. You want to reach out to her, hug her even.
You feel you know her. But despite our bonding she bristles as my arm touches her by accident. It goes back to her mother. She changes the subject back to the record. It has a new and different energy to it. Her voice is fierce, not thin, not old. It cracks into your heart. The truest sense of the word. The album ends with Happy Days. The subject of immigration is complex and requires deep contemplation not knee jerk reactions.
Love Is Never Wrong is about love being the most powerful force in the universe. I tell her the record is raw. You think smooth or perhaps silky and soaring, definitely comfortable but not this. Prozac dulls your senses. When my mother was on it she forgot to be angry. She had dementia as well and she forgot that she was always very angry but that pill really helped. I kept on with it longer than I should have. They are cleverly written. They work on two levels.
Because I get it. This time I get nothing.
I had to put butter on them and maple syrup to ease the pain. It makes you feel good. My son brought me pancakes at my last recording session from a great place. It was as if she was eating the most delicious, the most American food to savour it, as if it too was in jeopardy. American art, American furniture. Why would women vote for a man who does not let them control their own bodies? Why would women vote for misogyny? A lot of women vote the way their husbands vote.
Maybe that woman who is so articulate, so experienced and so presidential Hillaryso fit for the presidency, was too intimidating for some women. Perhaps she made women feel unsuccessful. Women are competitive and so forth. All of this was so devastating to me and I was heartbroken and very sad so I wanted to write about it, sing about it and deliver an album and it was perfect timing as synagogues are being blown up and bombs delivered to any luminary who has had something bad to say about President Trump.
I just did it. Maybe when I was younger but not now. I like my garden too much. I like staying home. I like writing my book…sort of. But they edited it without showing me and that was not nice. People in England have manners. They are always very nice to me. Inas producer and lead actress of A Star Is Born she had final cut of the movie. The ultimate control which is very rare and much sort after but she gave her power away.
She shakes her head. There is anxiety in her eyes as she talks. She attacked my suit. I like the combination of masculinity and femininity. I liked the feminisation of masculinity.
I like men who are masculine but have a feminine side. I like men who cry at movies and they like soft things. So this woman criticised my suit with diamonds. This woman was talking about my sexuality because I was wearing a low cut vest and the legs of the trousers had a slit.
I have a passion for design and that criticism was unfair. It always seems to me unfair that she was never acknowledged as a beauty. Today she has a mesmerizing presence and her skin glows and not in an artificial way.
She doesnt look fake. She has a lioness quality. In exchange for no salary up front they could make their own film with full creative control and a piece of the back end which they only got if the film was a hit. I wanted the character played by a liberated woman yet I gave away the title of producer and took a lessor one and I even cut out certain scenes of mine so I would have less screen time. They wanted her to look horrible.
So I got scared and I gave them power. I went only a tiny bit overbudget which was fine. I would make sure my understudy felt involved. I want everybody to feel needed on the set. I think they are less intimidated by a woman with power. Is she acting as well as directing in the new movie? I like real life. Its part of what makes her an icon. It won her an Oscar nomination.
You do expect that she is a fighter, a campaigner for love, for truth, for dogs. I just saw the new version of A Star Is Born. Did she think Lady Gaga was channelling herself in some parts? Did she say anything about that? At the time she was considered kooky looking, a prominent noise was not seen as a bonafide glamour-puss movie star nose.
Gaga is not known for her nose but none the less the movie makes a big deal of it. Bradley Cooper showed me that and the beginning started with the same concert and then singing in a little club. Because of the same producer. He had good ideas. The first time I walked into his house he had crude burnt wood frames paired with lace curtains at the windows. He understood masculinity and femininity. Someone else who works with her is waving their hands in a panic.
I have to go. Streisand has famously and repeatedly said no to impromptu pictures. It takes bravery and a little bit of control. With mine so I can have power to delete.
John Krasinski and Emily Blunt Were Meant to Be: Examining the Evidence | E! News
Her hair sweeps long beyond her shoulders. It even mingles with mine. I can smell her hair. It smells of roses, perhaps from her own garden. I love the way she sings with skill and abandon.
It shows the spirit of women and it shows that I was right to love her. No, I say puffing up. His son and my son used to play basketball together. Denzel is a good man, family man. Gave lots of money to the school.
He is a dark force for good and he does a lot of his research while driving his Lyft. You root for him. The fight scenes are powerful, fast, shocking. Washington himself has spent years in boxing training ever since he played Rubin Carter in the film The Hurricane. I hear him before he comes into the room. And an even larger presence. Washington likes to banter, to distract. He asks questions about the wallpaper with the utmost curiosity. He grew up in Mount Vernon, New York.
An odd buffer between the city and the rich Connecticut suburbs. It was mostly middle class. His father was a preacher who worked for the local water company by day and his mother owned beauty salons. They divorced when he was His mother ruled him with tough love and tried to protect him from the bad boys.
He went to college to study medicine, changed to political science, also considered law and journalism and ended up in a job where he could investigate all of these professions. Hollywood Boulevard has some little stars that people walk by and look at.
John McCain’s Funeral: A Call for Unity in a Time of Bitter Division
I tell him that I loved The Equaliser 2 which I did. But enough about me. His eldest daughter Katia 30 is a producer. He started off his career where people thought he was a goody two shoes having total swallowed his bad boy past.
Sanders shone in the Oscar winning Moonlight. In this movie Sanders is a teenager on the brink. He can go to art school or he can join a gang. In real life Sanders is an artist as well as an actor.
I wish him well. He asks me questions because things are changing for him. His friends are changing. I have been down that road. He and his three best friends were all in a band. The others did not fare well. One died through drug related AIDS and at least two of the others spent many years in jail. Was that the bond? We were spending all this time together and between takes we were talking. At least I can. How things could have gone. He had no example of what it was to be a man. This is sensitive, empathic Washington.
You know, a kid is isolated alone and trying to fit in and here come the guys. It discusses the racist violence that has been embedded into the American culture and this is the book that Washington chooses to give Sanders character. But this is as close as Washington gets to using his powerful platform as an African American.
He is partial to an intriguing Bible quote and he himself once went to church with his mother and had the experience of speaking in tongues. He says he met author Ta-Nehisi Coates randomly and then became intrigued. My character in the movie reads books anyway so I thought this is a good book to give the kid. In fact, he chortles quite a lot. He recently did a very funny interview on the Jimmy Kimmel show talking about how he saved the Oscars in Washington looked at Kimmel and gestured to him to get Barry Jenkins the director of Moonlight.
I must have been up for one because I was right down at the front. He directed Fences adapted from the stage by August Wilson. His first win was for Training Day in although I think he should have won in for The Hurricane and for Flight. These days he likes to mix up his film work with some directing and the stage where he started off has become increasingly important to him.
Asparagus tips and soy sauce and a specific ladies perfume. That was not in the script. Smells out the room before seeing it. You mean the character. Today I looked up the definition of Denzel.
He was much happier with being a fortress. He taught me something he learned from Nelson Mandela: He takes that idea and quietly helps people along the way. I think that was important to him to express in Robert McCall. But a leader of what?
Instead he tells a Biblical story about pigs being led off the edge of a cliff. You get a hangover. Something he would look forward to or any projects he wants to direct? On most days he boxes.
You can tell because of the way he spars onscreen. Listening to music is also a big part of his day. My TV at home is smaller than this TV but my room is bigger. I watch everything on my MacBook. You go to dinner and look what happens. If you do read the newspaper you are misinformed. That quote is a hundred years old. Does he think that the film industry has changed in the post Weinstein era? I think there are just more rules in place.
Does he feel that she is safeguarded as a young woman in the industry? Let that be the message to put out there. Their back will be broken. Because a lot of people feel it's a hopeless situation. All for vulgar talking yams, stand up and holler. Well, forget Freddie Gray, but in general, do you believe there are disparities in law enforcement? I've read where there are and I've read where there aren't.
I mean, I've read both. And, you know, I have no opinion on that. Because frankly, what I'm saying is you know we have to create incentives for people to go back and to reinvigorate the areas and to put people to work. And you know we have lost million and millions of jobs to China and other countries. Disparities in law enforcement?
Job losses to China! But how would you fix that?
You've said that you would open up the libel laws. What I would do, what I would do is I'd-well right now the libel laws, I mean I must tell you that the Hulk Hogan thing was a tremendous shock to me because-not only the amount and the fact that he had the victory-because for the most part I think libel laws almost don't exist in this country, you know, based on, based on everything I've seen and watched and everything else, and I just think that if a paper writes something wrong-media, when I say paper I'm talking about media.
I think that they can do a retraction if they're wrong. They should at least try to get it right. And if they don't do a retraction, they should, they should you know have a form of a trial. I don't want to impede free press, by the way. The last thing I would want to do is that. But I mean I can only speak for-I probably get more-do I, I mean, you would know, do I get more publicity than any human being on the earth?
While I realize that saying this may one day subject me to "some sort of trial," can I point out that this is just nuts? Let us pause for a moment to allow one of Trump's associated hooligans to have a say.
You know, they may cause a disturbance. Please do your best, let local law enforcement handle this or security at that venue. The problem becomes, with a massive crowd of twenty or thirty or forty thousand people, the resources that are there don't have the ability to get to all these people in a manner before the crowd reacts, because the agitators are inciting those people.
So we are very clear at the onset, that there is a loud public notice that says, "please do not engage these people, please let them do their job, and let the local law enforcement deal with that. I would add a warning that said, "Please try to avoid Corey Lewandowski," but that's just me.
A Surgeon So Bad It Was Criminal
I would add here that the discussion of Trump and the media went on about twice as long as it should have. Fred Hiatt knows what Fred Hiatt thinks the important issues are.
Look, I see NATO as a good thing to have-I look at the Ukraine situation and I say, so Ukraine is a country that affects us far less than it affects other countries in NATO, and yet we are doing all of the lifting, they're not doing anything. Why is it that other countries that are in the vicinity of the Ukraine not dealing with-why are we always the one that's leading, potentially the third world war, okay, with Russia?
Why are we always the ones that are doing it? We are not helped. I'll give you a better example than that. I mean, we pay billions-hundreds of billions of dollars to supporting other countries that are in theory wealthier than we are. This theory of unpredictability, I want to push a little bit, I mean-there are many people who think that North Korea invaded South Korea precisely because Acheson wasn't clear that we would defend South Korea. So I'm curious, does ambiguity sometimes have dangers?
It's about here where I started to sympathize a bit with He, Trump. Fred Hiatt's talking about Dean Acheson is one nightmare too many for one lifetime. Hiatt, after all, is the guy who waved the pompoms until his arms fell off in support of C-Plus Augustus's excellent adventure-the casus belli for which was, at best, ambiguous.
In a pair of interim staff reports, the Sept. Yet showing a peculiar instinct for the capillaries rather than the jugular, part of the public debate immediately focused on a single passing point that is no kind of revelation at all: The accusation is nearly as irresponsible as the Bush administration's rhetoric has been. Fred Hiatt's editorial page printed this nonsense on June 17, Based on the available evidence, Fred Hiatt is just about as deft a foreign-policy thinker as He, Trump is.
The conversation turned back to NATO and to the cost of American military bases around the world, and the board seemed gobsmacked by the fact that He, Trump questioned certain imperial imperatives. I think NATO as a concept is good, but it is not as good as it was when it first evolved. And I think we bear the, you know, not only financially, we bear the biggest brunt of it.
Obama has been stronger on the Ukraine than all the other countries put together, and those other countries right next door to the Ukraine.
