George Clooney Takes Tequila Shot for His 57th Birthday! Inside How He and Amal Are Celebrating

Happy birthday, George Clooney!

The actor, who turns 57 on Sunday, celebrated the milestone by doing a shot of Casamigos tequila with his longtime pal and business partner Rande Gerber — and PEOPLE has the exclusive video above. 

As the Casamigos team cheers for the guys in the background, Clooney and Gerber, 56, raise a Casamigos board featuring fastened shot glasses. Clooney’s face says it all, as he goes from processing the tequila to smiling before jokingly falling backwards, making everyone at the celebration laugh and clap.

Clooney has been in Italy for several weeks working on pre-production for his Hulu Catch-22 series, which is scheduled to begin shooting in nearby Sardinia later this month. His father-in-law, Ramzi Alamuddin, has been celebrating his own 80th birthday with friends and family at the Clooneys’ Lake Como residence. 

The actor and his wife are slated to be back in New York City for the glamorous Met Gala on Monday, where Amal is co-hosting. 

This time last year, the Clooneys were preparing to welcome their twins, Ella and Alexander, who will celebrate their first birthdays next month. “ how much I thought I had in control and how little control I actually have,” Clooney told PEOPLE of raising the twins last fall. “I have none! I think everybody quickly realizes that.”

He opened up about how becoming a dad has changed his life in September, telling The Hollywood Reporter, “The first thing you think is, ‘I hope I don’t screw this up.’ I mean, look, we are all responsible for things in life, and Amal and I are responsible for each other in a way — we look out for one another and we care about one another. But you are really responsible for two kids.”

He added, “I want them to be happy. I want them to have a sense of humor. I want them to be interested in things. I want them to be compassionate about other people’s plights. Because that’s the thing, you know? You have to have some sort of empathy.”

The actor has also given more insight recently into the beginnings of his relationship with Amal, 40, whom he married in 2014. “Of course she was beautiful,” he told Vogue in April. “But I also thought she was fascinating, and I thought she was brilliant. Her life was incredibly exciting — the clients she was taking on and the superhuman work that she was doing. I was taken with her from the moment I saw her.”

He previously opened up about meeting Amal at his Lake Como home during an appearance on David Letterman’s Netflix show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction. Clooney said he hadn’t heard of Amal, but his agent knew all about her and made sure the Up in the Air star wasn’t going to waste this opportunity. “I got a call from my agent who said, ‘I met this woman who is coming to your house, who you’re going to marry,’” George told Letterman. “It really worked out that way.”

Over the past several months, the couple have been spotted stepping out for romantic dinner dates in New York City, where the international human rights attorney has been teaching at Columbia University. With Amal’s return to Columbia University as a visiting professor of law and senior fellow with the Human Rights Institute, the humanitarian lawyer and the actor have been spending more time on the East Coast.

As for his professional life, Clooney, who hasn’t starred in a film since 2016’s Money Monster, admitted earlier this year that acting is no longer a priority for him. “Look, I acted for a long time and, you know, I’m 56. I’m not the guy that gets the girl anymore,” he told The Sunday Times, before adding that at least he “shouldn’t be the guy that gets the girl.”

The father of two continued, “But, look, if somebody’s got Paul Newman in The Verdict, I’d jump. But there aren’t that many like that. Acting used to be how I paid the rent, but I sold a tequila company for a billion f— dollars. I don’t need money.”

In June, Clooney confirmed that he and his two business partners — Gerber and real estate mogul Mike Meldeman — sold their Tequila company, Casamigos, for $ 1 billion.

Clooney has also been more outspoken politically this year, often criticizing President Donald Trump. But he told The Sunday Times in the same interview that he does not plan on running for office. “So many people since Trump was elected have really been pushing on me to get more involved in actual politics, specifically at the highest office,” he said, before admitting, “I don’t have political aspirations.”

British Climber Killed in Yosemite Rockfall Was Celebrating First Wedding Anniversary with Wife

The British couple hit by a 1,300-ton “sheet” of granite at Yosemite National Park on Thursday were on a dream holiday to celebrate their first wedding anniversary.

Experienced climbers Andrew Foster, 32, and wife Lucy, 28, from Cardiff, Wales, were at the end of a three-week vacation at the national park when disaster struck at the foot of El Capitan.

The U.S. National Park Service described seven rockfalls happening over a four-hour period from the southeast face of El Capitan, releasing approximately 1,300 tons of rock. Andrew was later found dead at the foot of the monolith by Yosemite park rangers and a search and rescue unit, while Lucy was airlifted to a local hospital with a fractured skull, according to KSEE24 News.

In a haunting social media record of their trip to Yosemite, the Fosters describe themselves as “a young married couple that enjoy nothing more than getting out and having adventures in the mountains together” on a blog titled The Adventures and Thoughts of Andrew & Lucy Foster.

The couple wrote, “We are not extreme athletes and describe ourselves simply as passionate weekend warriors. While our blog is just a log of what we have done we do hope that it will inspire other people to get out and experience the natural world.”

Facebook and Instagram pages linked to the blog also show the couple happily scaling Yellowstone’s Washington Column and Serenity Crack in the days before tragedy struck.

In one post, Andy is shown with a damaged hand after he “took a wiper off serenity crack.” He bravely added, “Pride was more damaged than my hands or shoes.”

Another post reveals they attempted to climb up the Washington Column but decided to turn back at the “half way ledge” because the face was overloaded with other climbers. “There loads of other teams so decide to bail rather than spend hours waiting in line,” reads the post.

Tragically, the feeds end with a picture of a tired but happy Andrew Foster at the foot of a climb, alongside the chilling words “Yosemite has broken Andy. Time for a rest.”

While Yosemite records about 80 rockfalls per year, Foster’s death is the first rockfall-related fatality in the park for 18 years. Overall, there have now been 16 fatalities and more than 100 injuries from rockfalls since park records began in 1857.

“It is with much sadness that we mourn the loss of our dear friend and colleague Andrew Foster, who was killed in a tragic accident in Yosemite,” reads a statement from Alex Beasley, U.K. manager for clothing company Patagonia.

“Andy was a sales representative working in our UK team and had been with the business for five years. He was a much-loved member of our team and a passionate climber, mountaineer and skier who loved being in the outdoors. Our thoughts and condolences are with his wife Lucy and their families. We offer them our deepest sympathies.”

How Is Viola Davis Celebrating Her Golden Globe Win? ‘I’m Going to Eat Some Meat’

Viola Davis is ready for grub!

On Sunday night, the actress took home her very first Golden Globe for her role in Fences. And the five-time nominee planned to celebrate her win with plenty of food.

“I’m going to eat!” she told reporters at the 18th annual InStyle and Warner Bros. Pictures Golden Globe After-Party at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. “I’m going to eat some meat.”

Watch PEOPLE & EW Red Carpet Live Sunday night and streaming now on People/Entertainment Weekly Network (PEN). Go to PEOPLE.com/PEN, or download the app for Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Xumo, Chromecast, Xfinity, iOS and Android devices.

Joined by her husband Julius Tennon, Davis, 51, said the win “feels perfect.”

“It feels as it should be,” she said. “The perfect project, honoring August Wilson’s legacy, Denzel , and the right age to appreciate it.”

She also talked about her supportive family and friends, particularly Tennon and their 6-year-old daughter Genesis.

“It’s having my husband, and people who love me, and people who have my back, and people who celebrate me, behind me,” she said of the best part of the night.

As for her daughter watching the win from home?

“I’m sure she’s screaming,” she said.

Davis beat out Naomie Harris (Moonlight), Nicole Kidman (Lion), Octavia Spencer (Hidden Figures) and Michelle Williams (Manchester by the Sea). 

During her acceptance speech, the actress said, “This is my fifth nomination. I took all the pictures, went to the luncheon. But it’s right on time.”

After receiving some laughs, she delivered a heartfelt message to her costar, Washington.

“You know I’m a friend and a fan. Thank you for being an extraordinary leader, great actor, great director,” Davis said. “Thank you for saying ‘trust me’ and ‘remember the love.’ ”

In addition to her win, Davis provided a tribute to her former costar, friend and idol Meryl Streep, who took home the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

“That’s the first thing you notice about her: She tilts her head back with that sly suspicious smile,” she said of Streep. “And you think, ‘Do I have something in my teeth? Or does she want to kick my ass?’ Which is not going to happen.”

Celebrating 20 Years, SITE Santa Fe Shows New Commissions and Collaborations

Celebrating 20 Years: SITE Santa Fe’s Collaborative Spirit

A significant anniversary invites a retrospective view, and for SITE Santa Fe’s 20th, the institution is doing just that, in a yearlong series of exhibitions featuring artists who have presented major works at SITE in the past. But for this 20th-anniversary celebration, SITE is not only looking back at its own history, or reprising past projects, rather refreshingly the exhibits that comprise “SITE 20 Years/20 Shows” take the form of new work, commissions, and collaborations.

Ann Hamilton, The common SENSE (detail), 2014-2015. Courtesy of the artist.

SITE Santa Fe opened in 1995 with its first International Biennial: Longing and Belonging: From the Faraway Nearby, curated by Bruce Ferguson, and has since produced eight biennials, and over 80 exhibitions, helping to launch or galvanize the careers of numerous curators and artists. The notion of reconnecting with artists who have contributed to the institution’s history, taking a look at then and now, exemplifies SITE’s mission to form strong bonds with the international art community while cultivating deep roots within the community of Santa Fe and the wider Southwest region.

Amy Cutler, Cautionary Trail, 2005. Courtesy of the artist and Leslie Tonkonow Artworks + Projects, New York.

Presented in three installments, over spring, summer and fall, “SITE 20 Years/20 Shows” first opened in March with work by Gregory Crewdson, Deborah Grant, Roxy Paine, Mary Reid Kelley with Patrick Kelley, Rose B. Simpson, and Jessica Stockholder. The fall installment, opening October 23, will feature installations by Terry Allen, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller, Wangechi Mutu with Edgar Arceneaux, and Susan Silton with The Crowing Hens. The summer exhibition of “SITE 20 Years/20 Shows” is currently on view, until October 4, with installations and collaborations by Ann Hamilton, Janine Antoni with choreographer Stephen Petronio, Amy Cutler with musician Emily Wells and hairdresser Adriana Papaleo, Harmony Hammond with artist Francis Cape, and Dario Robleto with historian Patrick Feaster and Lance Ledbetter of Dust-to-Digital Records. While the wall texts throughout the show acknowledge the contributions of each of the artists to SITE Santa Fe’s exhibitions of the past–Ann Hamilton, for instance, showed in the first Biennial and Janine Antoni showed a major solo show at SITE in 2002–the focus rests on the artists’ current practices.

Dario Robleto, The Pulse Armed With a Pen (An Unknown History of the Human Heartbeat), 2014. Courtesy the artist and Inman Gallery, Houston. Photo: Paul Hester, The Menil Collection.

The installations in the current configuration of “SITE 20 Years/20 Shows” exhibit few connections between them, with each occupying its own discrete room in the gallery. But if there is one conceptual thread running throughout, it is the notion of collaboration–collaboration among artists, between artists and institutions, artists and choreographers, musicians, historians, and so on. A successful collaborative effort can achieve results that a single artist couldn’t produce on her own, a kind of synergistic effect that provides new contexts and new meanings to an artist’s work. In an unsuccessful collaboration, on the other hand, compromises become more apparent than cooperation, resulting in a situation where one person’s vision might supersede another to the detriment of the whole artwork. The wide range of artistic collaboration, both successful and unsuccessful, can be found in SITE Santa Fe’s current exhibition.

Janine Antoni and Stephen Petronio, Honey Baby, 2013. Copyright Janine Antoni and Stephen Petronio; Courtesy of the artists and Luhring Augustine, New York.

Janine Antoni’s collaboration with the choreographer Stephen Petronio, for instance, sheds new light on Antoni’s practice with regard to the grotesque and expressive potential of the human body–in this case a male dancer’s lithe form, emulating the movements of the body in utero–in a somewhat disturbing but entrancing video. And Dario Robleto’s collaboration with sound historians Patrick Feaster and Lance Ledbetter results in a series of small vinyl albums–recordings of the human heart and early gospel spirituals–with extensive liner notes that convey a historical depth and artistic sensibility (despite the somewhat twee aesthetic), enhancing our apprehension of these early recordings visually, textually, and sonically.

Harmony Hammond and Francis Cape, Angle of Repose, 2015, installation view. Courtesy of the artists and SITE Santa Fe. Photo: Eric Swanson.

The collaborative installation by painter Harmony Hammond and sculptor Francis Cape, Angle of Repose (2015), on the other hand, is less apparent as a collaboration at all. Comprised of one of Hammond’s layered monochrome paintings leaning against a wall and a collection of re-made handcrafted furniture by Cape, the two works are somewhat independent of each other, but their proximity yields a new conversation between the works. Their pairing seems more like a very astute curatorial choice, rather than a true collaboration that results in one unified work.

Amy Cutler, installation view, 2015. Courtesy of the artist and SITE Santa Fe. Photo: Eric Swanson.

While Hammond and Cape’s collaboration demonstrates restraint and subtlety, Amy Cutler’s installation commits the sin of sensorial overload. Created with musician Emily Wells and hairdresser Adriana Papaleo, the installation sets out to devise a three-dimensional version of one of Cutler’s surreal paintings. Braided hair intertwined between aspen logs that form a primitive hut in the center of the gallery, lit from within, houses bundled lumps of more hair. An eerie soundtrack of breathing permeates the dark atmosphere. The ambience is meticulously crafted, but the literalness of such a proposal deprives the viewer of the sense of imagination and wonderment one can experience in the scenes of Cutler’s strange and richly detailed paintings.

Ann Hamilton, The common SENSE, 2014-2015, installation view, SITE Santa Fe, 2015. Courtesy of the artist. Photo: Eric Swanson.

At turns impressive, delightful, and poignant, Ann Hamilton’s installation is one of the most richly rewarding of the show. Created in cooperation with the University of Washington’s Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture’s Ornithology collection, the common SENSE · the animals (2014-2015) is comprised of digital scans of bird and animal specimens taken from the collection, printed on stacks of newsprint, and presented salon style across the whole room. Invited to tear off sheets of the newsprint and take some of the pictures home, viewers are confronted with the consequences of their impulse to consume–as each sheet is torn away, the installation is lessened, pointing to the ultimate finitude of natural resources. In the wake of the tragedy of Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe, Hamilton’s installation becomes all the more moving.

Marie Watt, installation view, 2015. Courtesy of the artist and SITE Santa Fe. Photo: Eric Swanson.

The emphasis on collaboration at SITE Santa Fe is not a passing fancy, or just relevant to this particular exhibition, but rather is something that runs deep within the institution’s programming and curatorial mission. This is evidenced in a concurrent exhibition at the museum, Unsuspected Possibilities, supported by a Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Artistic Innovation and Collaboration Grant, featuring works by Marie Watt, Leonardo Drew, and Sarah Oppenheimer. Marie Watt’s installation in particular perfectly and beautifully illustrates SITE Santa Fe’s continued commitment to collaborative processes and community engagement. The artist, who is of Iroquois descent, involved local Santa Fe students and community members to help embroider designs on fragments of Pendleton blankets, which were then assembled into magnificent constructions, and hung like an advancing regiment through the gallery space. It’s a breathtaking installation, made all the more impressive knowing the many hands that touched it.

Celebrating My Dad’s First Birthday After He Passed Away

July is my father’s birth month.

We’d always celebrate with a family gathering; if the weather was nice, badminton, lawn darts and a backyard barbecue were the activities du jour. If the clouds took over, plenty of conversation ensued indoors, streamers and celebratory décor looking down on our giggles and well wishes. The events always concluded with my dad eating his favorite chocolate crunch-filled ice cream cake.

It was a day filled with reminiscing, laughing and pondering the future. It was a time when we truly recognized that every day is nothing short of splendid, and that in the end, we’re blessed to appreciate all life has to offer.

However, my father passed away earlier this year, five months shy of what would have been a celebration of his 64 years on Earth.

2015-07-09-1436456556-2309831-HuffPostDadBday.jpg

Learning to Like the “Would Have Been” Phrase

“Would have been” always struck me as a silly phrase in reference to those who passed away. People who said it were allowing themselves to wallow — unnecessarily so — in sadness. Noting the would-have-been age of the departed mentally prolongs a life that no longer exists, a kind of latching on to that makes the loss all the more painful. Cherishing memories and thinking of the deceased are one thing, but a continual blow-by-blow account of every birthday, anniversary and career would-have-been was hard for me to understand. I’d often cringe inside upon hearing others say their grandmother, who passed 27 years ago, “would have been 98 today.” Same for headlines about celebrities who “would have turned 100 this week.”

Yet as is common in situations where we hold tight to an opinion until it directly affects us — at which point we’re often open to new views and develop drastic shifts in perspective — I quickly took a liking to the phrase after my father’s death.

What’s wrong, after all, in mentally bringing him back, be it looking through pictures, playing a recording of his voice or yes…recalling that July is his birth month and he would have been 64 years old. If the closest I get to having him back are moments in which I dream of him and in the beautiful memory of a Would Have Been, then in the end, I’m blessed. The day is nothing short of bittersweet splendor.

So, armed with a new appreciation for this world of Would Have Been’s, I take great pride in letting everyone know that this month is my father’s birth month. I reflect on what would have been, wondering what would have been said, what gifts I would have gotten him and who would have scrambled for that last piece of crunch-filled dessert.

It’s our first July without him, the lawn void of darts, the grill covered.

In Death, A Celebration of Firsts

However, this first is also cause for celebration.

My father is no doubt on a journey we have yet to fully understand and I can only imagine that its awe far exceeds any game of lawn darts. In some ways, I view his departure as a birth, imagining him in a perpetual state of streamers and crunchies, if you will.

As such, I’m going to make it a point this month to not only remember the 63 year journey he had on this planet, but I’m also planning to celebrate what is now his first journey beyond the ones he had here.

As with birthdays, so it is with a loved one’s death: it’s a time of reminiscing, laughing and pondering the future. It’s a time when we truly recognize that every day is nothing short of splendid, and in the end, we’re blessed to appreciate all life has to offer.

Happy first birthday, Dad.

Celebrating Mother’s Day As a Motherless Daughter

Mother’s Day. A time of celebrating the amazing woman who gave you life, nurtured and inspired you. Your biggest supporter and fiercest defender.

Like myself and many of my clients, I have spent much of my life grieving for that mother. Not because she died, but because she never existed.

How do you celebrate your mother when she is no longer in your life, either by death or choice?

As a coach and former therapist, I have worked with countless women whose relationships with their mothers have been anything but the ideal depicted on greeting cards.

In these cases, Mother’s Day can be a day of disappointment, loss, and reminders of what you don’t have.

Family dysfunction can take on many forms. In my work, some common themes are a mother who didn’t pay attention to signs of abuse; dismissed her child’s (subtle or direct) cry for help; created an environment of neglect; and sometimes struggled with her own mental health issues.

There are times it is necessary to step back or end a relationship with your mother for the benefit of your own emotional health, well-being, and happiness. While it is generally a very difficult decision, fraught with fear and guilt, sometimes it is necessary.

Finding a way to set boundaries and grieving the loss of a relationship you never really had is an important part of healing from childhood abuse and dysfunction.

In my case, I grieve the mother I never had, due to chronic depression leading to neglect and the one who died when I was 23. I will never have the opportunity to have that relationship.

While you may never have that relationship with your mother, it is possible to experience nurturing relationships with people who inspire you and become your biggest supporter and fiercest defender. You just have to allow yourself the time to grieve and be open to allowing those people in your life.

Is Mother’s Day a struggle for you? Do you have difficulty finding a card that accurately represents your relationship? If so, make time this Sunday for you. Take some time to provide for yourself the nurturing, loving experience you deserve.

Join our community for support, information, and tools to help get through the difficulty of being a motherless daughter and other aspects of childhood abuse. www.courageousjourneys.com & www.facebook.com/courageousjourneys
