Judi Dench Defends The Work of Harvey Weinstein And Kevin Spacey

The 84-year-old Jude Dench came forward to defend the work of Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein, and men like them as Weinstein’s sexual assault trial draws near. Though she doesn’t in any way condone sexual harassment, she believes viewers should still appreciate their life’s work – and she has quite a solid argument!

Dench spoke with Radio Times and appeared on the cover of its latest issue, saying that their work should not be tossed aside and unappreciated just because of accusations that have been brought against them. “What kind of agony is that?” she asked.

“Are we going to negate 10 years at the Old Vic [where Spacey once served as artistic director] and everything that he did? How wonderful he’s been in all those films? Are we just not going to see all those films that Harvey produced?” she continued.

You’d Have to Ban Caravaggio, Too

Dench worked with Weinstein multiple times, one of the most renown being the 1998 film Shakespeare in Love. She compared what happened to the 17th-century painter Caravaggio to the present-day situation. The man has sentenced Death on account of murder, yet his work is still venerated and hung in Roman churches and museums.

“You cannot deny somebody a talent,” Dench said. “You might as well never look at a Caravaggio painting. You might as well never have gone to see Noël Coward [the famous English playwright and actor accused of harassment].”

After The New York Times’ 2017 exposé that recorded nearly two decades of allegations of misconduct, almost 90 women came forward to accuse Weinstein of harassing, sexually assaulting, or raping them.

The charges he’s now facing are for two of those, one of which is an incident in which he allegedly forcibly performed oral sex on a woman in his New York apartment in 2006. The other is a 2013 altercation where he allegedly raped a woman in a New York hotel room. Weinstein, whose trial is expected to begin on September 9, has denied these allegations and pleaded not guilty

Will You Boycott Hoese Of Cards Because of This?

Spacey, the former House of Cards star, has been charged with the indecent assault and battery of an 18-year-old boy in July 2016, and he has also pleaded not guilty.

This is not the first of such accusations being made against him as in 1986, the actor Anthony Rapp, who was 14 at the time, claimed Spacey made sexual advances. Spacey didn’t remember such an encounter but apologized anyway.

With the #MeToo movement going strong, many men have faced accusations like these as well as much ridicule and criticism.

Yet, there are some defending men’s “freedom to pester” women. In France, for instance, one hundred women signed an open letter criticizing the #MeToo movement and the criticism men have had to deal with as a result.

Catherine Deneuve, a French movie star, gathered writers, businesswomen, academics, and performers to sign the letter, denouncing the “hatred of men and sexuality.” The letter was printed in the French newspaper Le Monde.

Obamas and Clooneys on Double Date

Photos have been released showing Barack and Michelle Obama having a great time with George and Amal Clooney during a boat excursion in Italy.  The two couples were spotted enjoying each others company while on a lake located close to the Clooneys’ Italian villa.

Both men were smartly dressed in gray suits, with the former US-President opting for a darker shade of gray.  Michelle sported black trousers teamed with a white blouse, while Amal chose a long floral dress.

They looked set for an evening out and it is likely that the two couples were en route to a dinner supporting The Clooney Foundation for Justice.  The charity was founded by the Clooneys in order to tackle worldwide human rights injustice.

Long-time Friends

Of course, the couples have been friendly for a long time.  George Clooney has been a long time supporter of Obama and back in 2012 he held a fundraiser at his home in Los Angeles on Barack’s behalf.

It was during this event that it was revealed, by Barack, that the “Hope” poster by was inspired by a photo of himself and George at the event.  Barack laughed that it was the only time where George Clooney had been edited out of the photo, speaking highly of the actor, his work and his congeniality.

 

June has been a great month for the Obamas.  As well as their outing with the Clooneys their daughter Sasha, 18, graduated from High School back on June 9th The whole family attended the High School graduation ceremony including Sasha’s older sister, 20 year old Malia.

Mark Zuckerberg Innovates New Sleeping Aid for Mothers

While Mark Zuckerberg might not be seen as the savior of humanity as he once was, the Facebook guru is still a hugely respected name in innovation. Known for Facebook primarily, he’s enjoyed a massive and stellar rise to the very top of the tech industry.

However, clearly still burning bright with ideas and innovations, Zuckerberg has been working on a very cool, very considerate product – a sleeping aid for mothers.

With two young kids at home, the Facebook supremo is someone who understands the value of caring for his kids. So, after seeing how exhausted everyone was at home, he decided to act. To do that, he came up with the aptly named Sleep Box. He gave it to his wife, Priscilla Chan, who immediately found it useful to get her to sleep at night.

Speaking about the invention, Zuckerberg was clear about why he made it:

“Being a mom is hard, and since we’ve had kids Priscilla has had a hard time sleeping through the night,”“She’ll wake up and check the time on her phone to see if the kids might wake up soon, but then knowing the time stresses her out and she can’t fall back asleep.”

It’s a confusing process, but it is part of being a parent. Therefore, this new invention might go some way to overcoming this problem and helping Chan get to sleep a whole lot easier than she is at the moment.

This simple but effective little tool works by putting on a dim light from 6-7AM. It might seem simple, but it does a lot for improving quality of sleep for the duo.

Smart but Simple

The light is good enough that it will wake one of us to get the kids without it being too early. However, it’s also dull enough that, if they wish to keep on sleeping, the light is not going to wake them up too early.

It’s a simple but smart little invention and one that a lot of parents would like having around the house. Now, waking up in the middle of the night is not going to feel like such a stressful experience.

Indeed, Zuckerberg himself noted that even he was impressed at just how well the product had done at improving sleeping quality, saying: “As an engineer, building a device to help my partner sleep better is one of the best ways I can think of to express my love and gratitude,

“A bunch of my friends have told me they’d want something like this, so I’m putting this out there in case another entrepreneur wants to run with this and build sleep boxes for more people!”

What a cool little product. Be sure to keep an eye out for this, as it is very much likely to be made by someone else who can see the potential in this small but simple little box. Who knew the genius behind Facebook would also be the genius behind saving mothers from restless nights!?

While Mark Zuckerberg might not be seen as the savior of humanity as he once was, the Facebook guru is still a hugely respected name in innovation. Known for Facebook...

Why Does Queen Elizabeth Wear Gloves?

Over the many years that Queen Elizabeth has occupied the throne, there are a few things that stand out when it comes to her attire such as a bright colored coat, her matching hat, always a huge brooch, and lastly, her perfect gloves!  She has also been known to wear many different sunglasses in many different colors including blue, yellow, and fuchsia.

Back to the question about the gloves.  Actually, there is a really good reason, the queen must shake a lot of hands during the course of a day.  She is constantly exposed to germs so her gloves protect her!

Ever since her honeymoon in 1947, the glove manufacturer Cornelia James has kept the queen in a large supply of gloves.  Genevieve James, the current director, and daughter of Cornelia told Good Housekeeping, the gloves may serve a practical purpose but have also become her trademark over the years.

In 1947, the royal couturier Norman Hartnell, who designed the queen’s wedding dress, ordered a suitcase of James’ gloves.  James was well-known for his gloves coming in a multitude of colors as well as traditional shades which the queen loves.

Family Business

In 1979, manufacturer Cornelia James received her Royal Warrant as the official glove manufacturer to Queen Elizabeth.  After Cornelia’s death in 1999, her daughter took over the business.  It’s estimated that since that time, the company has made around 60 to 70 pairs of gloves for the queen.  Genevieve said that she can tell the difference between her creations and those of her mother’s.

Unlike your standard glove, the queen’s gloves are made from pure cotton with a suede-brushed finish. Another favored style of gloves uses a lighter Swiss jersey.  The gloves are from the Francesca or Regina collection and the length is customized for the sleeves to reach 5 inches from the base of her thumb to her arm.  This allows the gloves to reach beyond the cuff of her coat and keeps her wrists covered.

The queen has been known to keep at least 2 or 3 gloves with her at all times.  The queen is also known to be thrifty, she is likely to get her gloves washed and/or repaired due to the cost of £110 per pair. The queen has been known to keep her gloves for 40 years.  The royal family has always wanted to appear as economical, not wasting money.

It’s believed the British people are in favor of their economic spending, seeing the family in a much more favorable light. I’m sure we would all love to have these incredible gloves to add to our fashion statement, but for now, let’s just say “God Save The Queen”!

Over the many years that Queen Elizabeth has occupied the throne, there are a few things that stand out when it comes to her attire such as a bright colored coat, her...

Gordon Ramsay Posts Pictures Of Raw Food. Why?

When you are cooking for your friends, you can pretty much serve whatever you want.  But raw food? You might want to store that in a folder labeled “What Not To Serve At A BBQ”.

That’s probably easier said than done when you are a famous international chef.  The food you prepare is going to be noticed by millions of people.  That’s a given for Gordon to deal with on a daily basis.

He has spent years shouting at chefs in kitchens, making derogatory comments about their sandwiches because they couldn’t seem to grasp how to cook a simple egg.

He is well-known for berating others and making comments that are a far cry from decent. Rarely does he have the focus turned on him or his cooking skills? It seems the tables have turned and many people have taken issue with his latest concoctions during a BBQ.

Controversial Chateaubriand

That said, people had taken issue with one of his latest accomplishments in the kitchen and placing it on social media revealing a delicious looking Chateaubriand.

The dish is served on a wooden board with a Bearnaise sauce, tomatoes, and green garnish.  The pictures, alone, will definitely stir up your appetite, but some people had questioned when the meat was going to be properly cooked?

His post was covered in comments from people saying the meat was way too raw to serve for their liking.  One person said, quite sarcastically, that if they could get a veterinarian on the scene quickly, he or she could probably resuscitate the poor cow.

Others have suggested that Ramsey place it back on the BBQ.

Secret Sauce

What many of these commentators do not understand, this is exactly how you serve Chateaubriand along with a Bearnaise sauce!  It is a tenderloin cut that is located between the sirloin and top sirloin parts of the cow.

Even though he’s not wrong, some people find the image a little beyond upsetting. Moving on to the popular online show, First We Feast, which consists of people asking questions while eating hot wings.

What you might call hot wings might not be the same, these hot wings are super HOT!

Ramsey is the most requested guest on the show and it was his kids bullying him to go on.  They told their dad he is always shouting and screaming all day because he has a big mouth, but can he actually take on some of these hot wings?

During the interview, he couldn’t help but make negative comments about the hot wings, asking how long these wings had been cooked and followed up with “because they are a bit “f**ing” overcooked. He said one of the wings looked like his grandfather’s big toe and quite simply they are just not good.

He managed to take on the wings but as the heat started to rise, he started breaking into a sweat and started tearing. Final comment, as he wiped back tears, he said “I haven’t cried this much since AA Gill’s funeral”

Way to go First We Feast! What goes around, sometimes comes back around!

When you are cooking for your friends, you can pretty much serve whatever you want.  But raw food? You might want to store that in a folder labeled “What Not To Serve...

3 Biggest Pop Culture Imaginary Stories And Rumors

People are bored. When people are bored, they tend to come up with weird and wonderful conspiracy theories, often about those that in the spotlight.

Some of them are eerily convincing (I personally believe Michael Jackson is chilling on a beach in Hawaii somewhere) while some are outright wacky. Here are the three best and funniest pop culture conspiracy theories that will have you scratching your head for the rest of the day.

Lorde is older

This conspiracy even sparked a South Park episode, so you know it’s good… when Lorde emerged with her hit “Royals” in 2013, a group of people dedicated to the truth claimed she was way older than her said age of 17.

Luckily this rumor didn’t gain too much ground and was put to rest when The Hairpin requested a copy of her birth certificate. Lorde happily complied, and it was proved that Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor was indeed born on Nov. 7, 1996.

Michael Jackson And His Sister Latoya Are The Same Person

While I am of the belief the King of pop is still alive, many have a wackier theory that Michael Jackson and his sister Latoya are one and the same (that picture of them together must just be some genius photo cropping)

Theorists seemed to ignore the fact that they have appeared together multiple times and that the two were born two years apart.

The Simpsons Predicted 9/11

It’s been a freaky phenomenon for years- the Simpsons creator somehow knows how to ‘predict things’ or so they say. In the shows ninth premier “The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson,” Lisa holds up an ad for a $9 trip to Manhattan that shows the “9” next to an image of the Twin Towers….apparently that translated as a 9/11 prediction somehow or another.

Coincidence or not you’ve got to admit its kind of freaky.

The episode was taken off after 9/11 occurred but has since been put back on rotation. It follows the Simpson family on a trip to Manhattan where their car was abandoned near the world trade center.

The 3 Coolest Couples Between 1972 – 1974

Who was the coolest couple of the year? Who did you look at and say “wow… that looks like true love” but found yourself saying it over and over? I’m sure you would love to see these couples go on with their love, wouldn’t you?

Here’s a look back at those glamorous couples whose love felt just as real and intense as your crush from chem class. Continue down the time-tunnel of love:

1972: Carly Simon and James Taylor

Musical power couple Carly and James got married in 1972, just a year after they began dating. But Carly had her sights set on James way before they first met.

“I saw his picture on the cover of TIME magazine when I was walking home with my sister and I said, ‘I’m gonna marry that man,’” she once revealed to People.

Love comes to an end

They had two children together, but ultimately the couple filed for divorce after a decade of marriage thanks to Taylor’s infidelities and a heroin addiction… unfortunately they did not end on the best of terms.

1973: Ali MacGraw and Steve McQueen

Ali and Steve started dating in 1972 and got married a year later. Despite the couple’s glamorous veneer, their relationship was secretly quite rocky.

Secret Trauma

McQueen, titled the “King of cool” at his time, was not only abusive and had constant affairs, but throughout their marriage he would not allow McGraw to work, even offering to pay her not to take roles she was offered.

“There were many times that were just wonderful, and there were many times that were just ghastly,” Ali explained to People. The couple got divorced in 1977.

1974: Anjelica Huston and Jack Nicholson

Anjelica and Jack began dating in the early ’70s, and their on-and-off relationship spanned the next 17 years.  While Nicholson was emotional and caring about Anjelica throughout their relationship, he was also constantly busy with flings outside their relationship.

Shocking Surprise

Anjelica wrote in her memoir that Jack was constantly unfaithful, and she finally left him when he disclosed that was expecting a child with another woman. Still, the couple was a sought-after staple in the 1970s and ’80s Hollywood scene.

This can go on up to 2018, so if you want to see who else was the hottest couple of the year, continue here

Kanye West Loves “Rick & Morty”

We knew this before, Kanye West never has minced words when asked what his favorite TV show is, he always says it is “Rick & Morty.” Over the years, Kanye has talked about the show on his social media pages and TV. He says the episodes are so good; it is easy to watch them five times without getting bored.
The “Rick & Morty” TV show is an animated adult science fiction sitcom. It was created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon. The TV show can be seen on Cartoon Network during the late hours every day because of its PG rating. The sitcom is about a crazy scientist called Rick Sanchez and his grandson Morty Smith who go on different adventures across the galaxies. So far, there are over seventy episodes of the show.

The press caught up with Kanye in NYC. He had come with Kim Kardashian to enjoy the Versace fashion show. Kanye was about entering the venue of the event when he was asked the all too familiar question, “What is your favorite TV show?” and he mentioned the name we have heard for many years.

We wonder why Kanye is so fascinated by this show. The crazy humor and adventures of Rick and Morty are good for a laugh. It is warming to know that Kanye can find time to unwind with such a hilarious show despite his busy schedule.

We won’t be surprised to see a cameo with Kanye on the “Rick & Morty” show in the nearest future. He has made the show quite popular. Last time Kanye mentioned the TV show’s name, the search results online increased because many people were interested in seeing the show Kanye was so passionate about.

We also noticed a bromance forming between Kanye and the creator of “Rick & Morty” Justin Roiland. The two have been communicating on Twitter, and there are plans to hand out. Kanye has also taken an interest in the characters of the show; he posts pictures of Rick and Morty on his social media pages. The special one happened during Kanye’s birthday. His wife Kim Kardashian launched a new Rick and Morty song titled “Kanye’s B Day,” which was originally composed for Kanye’s birthday

We want to be better…So if you found a mistake in this article, please let us know

Groovy Photos – Elton John & Freddie Mercury, The Last Words

Freddie Mercury died November 24, 1991 and when listening to his music, it seems as if he’s still here. The king of rock could hold crowds for hours with an amazingly wide range of music styles and an out of this world stage performance. He was truly an entertainer and the essence of Groovy! He died from AIDS complications. Elton John was a very good friend of his, and he was there, in Freddie’s final days.

The two use to hang out a lot and Elton got to know Freddie really well. They were so close that they both had nicknames for each other – “Freddie and I had developed pet names for each other, our drag-queen alter egos. I was Sharon, and he was Melina.”

Alter Egos

Elton John shared some details about the Mercury’s last days in a book called Love is the Cure: On Life, Loss, and the End of AIDS. He wrote: “…Freddie told me he had AIDS soon after he was diagnosed in 1987. I was devastated. I’d seen what the disease had done to so many of my other friends. I knew exactly what it was going to do to Freddie. As did he. He knew death, agonizing death, was coming. But Freddie was incredibly courageous. He kept up appearances, he kept performing with Queen, and he kept being the funny, outrageous, and profoundly generous person he had always been.”

“As Freddie deteriorated in the late 1980s and early ’90s, it was almost too much to bear. It broke my heart to see this absolute light unto the world ravaged by AIDS. By the end, his body was covered with Kaposi’s sarcoma lesions. He was almost blind. He was too weak to even stand.”

“By all rights, Freddie should have spent those final days concerned only with his own comfort. But that wasn’t who he was. He truly lived for others. Freddie had passed on November 24, 1991, and weeks after the funeral, I was still grieving.”

“On Christmas Day, I learned that Freddie had left me one final testament to his selflessness. I was moping about when a friend unexpectedly showed up at my door and handed me something wrapped in a pillowcase. I opened it up, and inside was a painting by one of my favorite artists, the British painter Henry Scott Tuke. And there was a note from Freddie. Years before, Freddie and I had developed pet names for each other, our drag-queen alter egos. I was Sharon, and he was Melina. Freddie’s note read, “Dear Sharon, thought you’d like this. Love, Melina. Happy Christmas.”

All About Rosie O’Donnell’s Engagement, Fiancee and Bling-Ring

UPDATED: The Winners At The 70th Emmy Awards

UPDATE 18/09/2018: The list of winners at the 2018 Emmy Awards has now been added to the end of this post.

Predictions abound for the 70th iteration of the Emmy’s with several of television’s most celebrated shows set for a big night at the Television Academy Awards held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Monday, September 17, 2018.

“This year’s nominations continue to represent increased diversity and inclusion in front of the camera,” said Television Academy Chairman and CEO Hayma Washington. “And, there is a wealth of new and returning programs that reflect so many of today’s critical issues.”

Among all shows up for awards, Game Of Thrones has the most nominations (22) in all categories, followed by Saturday Night Live (21) and Westworld (21). Leading the nominations in totals by platform are Netflix (112), HBO (108) and NBC (78). With over a hundred awards on offer, we’ll take our pics among the contenders for the Drama Series category’s main awards.

Outstanding Drama Series

The award for the best drama series seems like a two horse raise between downtrodden handmaidens and the dragon-riding royalty of Westeros. With Game of Thrones famously absent from last year’s awards, the Handmaid’s Tale swooped in to collect the gong. This year, the two go head-to-head. Critics are predicting a win for the Hulu drama to repeat the feat again this year.

Lead Actor In A Drama Series

It looks to be a threepeat for actor Sterling K. Brown. The This Is Us star comes in having won consecutive awards for The People v. O.J. Simpson and This Is Us. With his fictional father, Ron Cephas Jones, winning the Guest-Actor award in a stunning upset this past weekend, it means voters have been paying attention to the storyline. Realistically, Brown’s main threat is his co-star and fictional adopted father, Milo Ventimiglia, who perhaps had a more emphatic role this past season.

Lead Actress In A Drama Series

Likewise, except a repeat for Elisabeth Moss to win this year’s gong. The Handmaid’s Tale star’s compelling portrayal in the series seems impossible to beat, with the show’s success due in large part to the star’s series-carrying performance. Having been overlooked for her past work on Mad Men, Moss is a shoe-in for this year’s award once again.

Supporting Actor In A Drama Series

Last year’s winner, John Lithgow for The Crown, isn’t in the running this year, which leaves the field wide open. Both Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Peter Dinklage can consider themselves contenders for their roles on Game of Thrones. Dinklage already having two previous wins and Coster-Waldau being tasked with the season’s most poignant moments. However, Matt Smith for his perfectly petty and occasionally sympathetic portrayal as Prince Philip in The Crown is apparently tipped to win.

Supporting Actress In A Drama Series

The Handmaid’s Tale has three nominees this award, making up it a favorite to win this award. Interestingly the show has yet to lose an acting category in which it has been nominated. The real question is not if but who among its nominees will win. Samira Wiley was awarded this year’s Guest Actress award, just as Alexis Bedel, who won last year’s Guest Actress prize, is now a season regular and up for a Supporting Actress award. Ann Dowd and Yvonne Strahovski who also star in the show are nominated. Dowd might have been the early favorite, however, as the season progressed it was Strahovski who really stole the show, having previously worked on both Chuck and Dexter.

As for the Outstanding Directing For A Drama Series, and Outstanding Writing For A Drama Series awards, there’s little to separate between Game of Thrones, The Handmaid’s Tale, and This Is Us.

“It’s been another record-breaking year with more than 9,100 entries in 122 unique categories for the initial nomination round of voting,” said Washington. “The continued growth of the industry has provided opportunities for acclaimed new programs to emerge while allowing last season’s break-through programs to thrive.”
