History Buffs: Apollo 13 (Video)

Apollo 13 is a 1995 American docudrama space adventure film directed by Ron Howard. The film stars Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon, Bill Paxton, Gary Sinise, and Ed Harris. The screenplay by William Broyles, Jr., and Al Reinert, that dramatizes the aborted 1970 Apollo 13 lunar mission, is an adaptation of the book Lost Moon: The Perilous Voyage of Apollo 13 by astronaut Jim Lovell and Jeffrey Kluger. The film depicts astronauts Lovell, Jack Swigert, and Fred Haise aboard Apollo 13 for America’s third Moon landing mission. En route, an on-board explosion deprives their spacecraft of most of its oxygen supply and electric power, forcing NASA’s flight controllers to abort the Moon landing, and turning the mission into a struggle to get the three men home safely.

Leonardo DiCaprio flew eyebrow artist 7,500 miles to do his brows for the Oscars

The move is particularly surprising given the fact that DiCaprio is an active environment campaigner.

How much effort do you put into the appearance of your eyebrows? Tinting? Threading? Pencilling in? Plucking the strays? Or perhaps nothing at all?

Well if you’re an A-lister with the eyes of the world watching, it seems no length is too extreme to ensure your brows are perfect.

Australian eyebrow-artist to the stars Sharon-Lee Hamilton was flown from Sydney to Los Angeles to tend to a select few celebrities’ brows before the 2017 Oscars.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire are reportedly two members of the Hollywood elite who insisted on Hamilton flying the 7,500 across the Pacific Ocean, despite DiCaprio’s environmental stance.

Hamilton has previously revealed that when travelling on request, her costs are covered.

Hollywood Weaponizes Against Trump: Agency CAA to Host ‘Take Action’ Summit

Creative Artists Agency (CAA) is set to host a political summit called “Take Action Day” on February 23, signaling that Hollywood is doubling down on political advocacy in the Trump era.

The summit will feature speeches from newly-elected U.S. Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) and U.S. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA 23), according to Variety. Clients and industry pros are encouraged to attend workshops and view presentations on issues ranging from immigration to civil rights and the environment, among others.

Other speakers include former U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, and Salam Al-Marayati, president of the Muslim Public Affairs Council.

CAA — one of the world’s largest talent agencies — represents some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, including directors J. J. Abrams and Kathryn Bigelow, actresses Jennifer Aniston and Emily Blunt and actor Jeff Bridges, as well as politicians like Joe Biden and Barbra Boxer. The agency also represents musicians like Bruce Springsteen, Beyoncé and Lady Gaga.

CAA president Richard Lovett says he hopes the summit will offer its high-profile attendees the tools to “take immediate action” on the political issues they are passionate about.

Carlos Santana Defends Adele Grammys Sweep: Beyoncé ‘Not a Singer’

Legendary guitarist Carlos Santana weighed in on Adele’s sweep of the Grammy Awards earlier this week, telling the Associated Press in Australia on Tuesday that Beyoncé should not have won the night’s most prestigious prizes because “she’s not a singer.”

Adele took home five Grammys Sunday night, including Album of the Year for her smash hit 25, plus Song of the Year and Record of the Year for the album’s single, “Hello.” Beyoncé, meanwhile, picked up two awards, for Best Music Video (“Formation”) and for Best Urban Contemporary Album.

“I think that Adele won because she can sing, sing,” Santana told the Australian AP.

“With all respect to our sister Beyoncé, Beyoncé is very beautiful to look at and it’s more like modeling kind of music — music to model a dress — she’s not a singer, singer, with all respect to her.”

Adele and Beyoncé both performed during Sunday night’s ceremony, the latter employing visual effects and a large crew of backup dancers for her songs “Love Drought” and “Sand Castles,” off of her Black Lives Matter-inspired album Lemonade.

Adele opened the show with a performance of her eventual Grammy-winning “Hello,” and later returned to the stage to perform “Fastlove, Part 1” in a tribute to the late pop icon George Michael.
