We Played 2 Hours of Red Dead Redemption 2 – Here’s What Happened

As I trotted across the prairieland of New Hanover on my well-groomed steed, Mahogany Boy (named due to a tragic misread of his breed, the Mahogany Bay), I heard the dull rattle of a freight train. I yanked the reins, hit X a few times to shift gears into a gallop, and streaked toward the tracks, just as the steam locomotive rounded a corner into view. I had an idea.

As I took up a trajectory with the train, I heard a shout over the growing noise – bounty hunters sent to collect me, dead not alive. It was a fair cop: I’d recently threatened a passing wagoner, stolen his cart and rode it off a cliff to see what happens (you die). As the engine streaked past and I swung the camera to get a look at my pursuers, a button prompt appeared in the bottom-right corner of the screen: “Jump on train”.

Jimmy Kimmel Shows Backstage Security Footage of ‘What Happened With the Envelope’ at Oscars

 

The now-infamous ending of Sunday’s Academy Awards — in which Bonnie and Clyde costars Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway mistakenly announced La La Land as the Best Picture winner instead of Moonlight, the actual victor — had everyone on both sides of the screen scrambling to figure out what had happened.

But while the Academy has placed blame on PricewaterhouseCoopers and their accountant, the show’s host Jimmy Kimmel is jokingly pointing fingers at someone else for the error: his security guard, Guillermo Rodriguez.

In the cold opening to Monday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the 49-year-old comedian showed security footage of what really went down backstage during what is now being called “envelopegate.”

 

According to the segment, titled “Here’s What Happened with the Envelope,” it appears Rodriguez was indulging on the Junior Mints handed out by Kimmel during the show and needed a napkin to wipe his mouth. Not realize what he was grabbing, he used the Best Picture envelope and then tossed it aside before drinking from a large bottle of tequila.

Check out PEOPLE’s full 2017 Academy Awards coverage and complete winners list!

 

Of course, the whole clip was just a joke. Later in the show, Kimmel explained what he saw happen during the Hollywood Who-Done-It, and reassured viewers that the mix-up was not a hoax.

“As I walked offstage, people started to speculate that maybe I was pulling a prank. Which, trust me, if I had pulled a prank in that situation, I wouldn’t have just had the wrong winner’s name in the envelope when they opened it. There would have been a Bed Bath & Beyond coupon inside. It was not a prank,” he said.

RELATED VIDEO: Moonlight Wins Best Picture

 

“And by the way, the producers of La La Land were very gracious, on stage and off,” Kimmel continued. “They handled it very well. It was a very amicable custody arrangement. They didn’t even ask for visitation or anything.”

After the show, Kimmel said he met up with Beatty in the green room to collect more intel because “when you do a show like this, you aren’t just the host, you’re also the lead detective, the sheriff of the show.”

“For whatever reason, they have two of each envelope,” Kimmel said. “There’s a regular envelope and a backup envelope, just to make it more confusing. The accountants gave Warren the wrong card, and they apologized for it today. So it wasn’t Warren Beatty’s fault. And Faye Dunaway, she made quite a getaway.  She read the wrong name and split. She got the hell out of there.”

Jimmy Kimmel Live! airs weekdays at 11:35 a.m. ET on ABC.

What Happened To The Ingénue?

You can be highbrow. You can be lowbrow. But can you ever just be brow? Welcome to Middlebrow, a weekly examination of pop culture.

Last week, when film icon Debbie Reynolds died at 84, her New York Times obituary headline dubbed her a “Wholesome Ingénue in 1950s Films.” Quickly, lookups for the etymologically French term soared, according to Merriam- Webster.

As those curious readers likely found, the Times was being slightly redundant in its description of the one-time starlet. The term “ingénue” itself ― which usually describes a wide-eyed, innocent young woman, a stage or film role depicting such a young woman, or an actress typecast as playing these roles ― denotes wholesomeness, sexual purity and naiveté, and sweetness. 

When Reynolds broke into Hollywood as a teenager, she starred as girl-next-door sweethearts opposite the male matinée idols of the day in films like “Singing in the Rain” and “Bundle of Joy.” She filled a classic role at the time, guileless lead or foil to the femme fatale. Judy Garland, Joan Leslie, Mary Pickford, Lillian Gish, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly ― the bright-eyed young innocent has been a relative constant in the film industry, as established before in opera and musical theater. 

In the years since Reynolds umbrella-danced with Gene Kelly, it seems American readers have forgotten about the ingénue. (Or maybe they just wanted a quick dictionary refresher.) The French word was introduced into the English vocabulary in the mid-19th century, possibly by William Makepeace Thackeray’s massive novel about a classic femme fatale who poses, when convenient, as an ingénue, Vanity Fair. Though pronounced in the French manner, the word shares its roots with “disingenuous,” a not-uncommon English term for a calculated, dissembling quality, and “ingenuous,” a less-common word for a naive, frank quality.

Entertainment writers haven’t given up on the word; it still shows up in profiles and reviews aplenty these days. But the definition has become diffuse and slippery. Vampy sexpot Megan Fox is an ingénue. Accomplished 31-year-old actress Lupita Nyong’o, upon her breakout performance after 10 years of hard, patient work, is an ingénue. Sexed-up schoolgirl Britney Spears is an ingénue. Famously surly Kristen Stewart, whose celebrity romance with Robert Pattinson was ended by a fling with an older, married director, is an ingénue. An ingénue is fresh-faced and gorgeous, but we rarely pay much mind to the connotations of innocence ― the very same LA Times article that called Fox an ingénue also dubbed her a “screen siren” and a “femme fatale,” traditionally the photo negative of an ingénue.

Not that we should be troubled by the decline of the “ingénue,” which likely has less to do with our generation’s illiteracy than with the blurring of the once-clear Madonna/whore dichotomy. If a woman can be perceived as good and wholesome despite sexual experience, the vamp vs. ingénue conflict collapses in on itself ― and these days, even most rom-com heroines know their way around a partner’s sexy bits. Depictions of women on-screen, and coverage of women in the spotlight, have progressed enough to celebrate women who speak their minds, take care of themselves, and have experience in the ways of the world. Reynolds’ own daughter, Carrie Fisher, was most famous for her role as a beautiful princess, but a space rebel warrior princess. 

The ingénue isn’t just a throwback to old-school feminine values, but a reminder of something still more sinister: the racism bound up in those restrictive gender roles. While white women were expected to carefully guard their fragile virtues, presenting a pure and feminine package to their future husbands, women of color ― especially black women ― were generally treated as sexually knowing and available from a young age, regardless of their actual experience.

“Because the ingénue is implicitly white, she represents a model of respectability that is harder to achieve for girls of color,” musicologist Alexandra Apolloni argues. “As scholars, including Patricia Hill Collins, Kyra Gaunt, Beverly Skeggs, and others have argued, the sexual maturity of girls of color is assumed.”

Non-white stars were not ingénues, though they might be divas or vamps, like Chinese-American actress Anna May Wong. Even today, any white starlet will find it easier to be viewed as a vulnerable ingénue than a woman of color, who is more likely to be presumed sexually predatory or brassy if she doesn’t carefully craft a flawless image. No degree of acting out precludes a white woman from the label ― Miley Cyrus can gyrate against a man onstage in pasties and later be dubbed one ― but for a black woman to attract that appellation, she must be as dewy, classically beautiful, demure and unimpeachable in reputation as Lupita Nyong’o. No one is calling Nicki Minaj an ingénue. 

Ingénue, as a concept and a word, has lost its power because the constructs it upheld have been vigorously undermined for decades. But the fact that it lingers at all, not just in obituaries of film stars like Reynolds ― who played numerous other roles throughout the rest of her career, anyway ― suggests that its problematic power hasn’t vanished. Perhaps we can forgive a woman, nowadays, for being sexually experienced, but the idea of a fresh, virginal girl still bears an aura of desirability that an unpracticed boy does not.

By labeling young female performers “ingénues,” we’re revealing that we associate their ability to conform to an archetype of traditional white femininity, as well as their youth and relative inexperience (real or perceived), with their star power, which we certainly still do. Two years ago, Russell Crowe rather nastily commented that older actresses should give up on expecting “play the ingénue” ― neither acknowledging the dearth of roles for women over 35 nor the heightened status granted to it girls and ingénues compared to more mature women in the spotlight.

The ingénue hasn’t gone extinct yet, despite the term’s relative rarity in 21st-century America. The concept lingers in early Taylor Swift songs about pining over a boy who prefers another, sexier girl; and in Woody Allen movies in which a bright-eyed young woman is shown the way of things by an older gentleman. The decline of the ingénue reveals only positive developments for women in and around Hollywood: That they’ve inhabited more complex roles, that they’ve been allowed to sympathetically portray sexual maturity, that women of color have fought to be viewed as innocents, and that women have made progress in being viewed as people, not as two-dimensional Madonnas or whores.

That the word, with its vaguely kittenish allure, still floats around gossip and style columns ― well, that just reveals how far we still have to go.

Warren Beatty on Life with Annette Bening and Kids: ‘They’re the Biggest Thing That Happened to Me’

Warren Beatty‘s list of ex-girlfriends reads like a who’s who of Hollywood in the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s. That all changed when the actor met Annette Bening on the set of the 1991 film Bugsy.

However, Beatty was intrigued by Benning — now his wife of 24 years — before he even met her. In this week’s issue of PEOPLE, the 79-year-old actor reveals Bening canceled a meeting with him when she was being considered for a role in the 1990 film Dick Tracy.

When they met for lunch in preparation for Bugsy, Beatty knew his life was going to change forever.

“I remember losing interest in the garlic chicken I was eating within 20 seconds. And the garlic chicken had been very good,” he recalls.

At that meeting, the screen legend promised Bening that he wouldn’t hit on her while filming. However, that rule went out the door toward the end of shooting when he asked her out to dinner. Although there was “a moment of hesitation on her part,” the duo went out to eat — and the rest is history. 

The couple married in 1992 and had four children — Stephen, 24, Benjamin, 22, Isabel, 19, and Ella, 16.

“That’s the biggest thing that’s ever happened to me – and their mother,” Beatty says of his kids. “That’s bigger than fame, and it came not a moment too soon.”

For much more from Warren Beatty, pick up the latest issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands now

 

Beatty recently told Vanity Fair that oldest child Stephen, a transgender activist and writer, is “a revolutionary, a genius and my hero, as are all my children.”

He says now: “They’ve always known I felt that way.”

Although he’s one of the biggest movie stars of his day, Beatty’s fame doesn’t mean much to his kids – they haven’t even seen their parents’ iconic movies.

“Once in a while I’ll say, ‘Did you ever see such and such?’ And they haven’t,” Beatty says. “I said to my 19-year-old last year, ‘Have you ever seen Shampoo?’ and she was like, ‘Nooo.’ So there’s my legacy for you. At least around here.”

What’s important to him isn’t that his kids know his biggest roles, but that he’s a great parent. When asked if he thinks he’s a good father, he replies without hesitation, “I know it.”

Part II examines four more contemporary schools (Butterfield; Free Union Country; Urban Academy; W. Haywood Burns), showing how progressive practices gained momentum from the 1960s onward. As a volume in the History of Schools and Schooling series, this book seeks to look to the past for what it can teach us today. The lessons from the past about what has happened to progressive education hopefully will inform contemporary debates.

It’s Happened: Kanye West Styled Kim Kardashian for a Sexy Photo Shoot

Even if we all think (know?) that Kanye West is responsible for Kim Kardashian’s style behind the scenes, we’re now getting a legit look at what happens when he takes on the role of stylist in a professional capacity. For a special booklet from System Magazine, shot by esteemed fashion photographer Juergen Teller, West acts as stylist, putting his wife in a skin-color bustier and leotard, plus black thigh-highs.

A photo posted by @quickfixretouch on

With no specifics on how many pages the special edition has, it’s not clear whether we can expect multiple Kim-for-Kanye ensembles or if it’s just this one sultry look. The combo we have seen certainly shares a lot of similarities with the athletic, body-con looks West did for his Adidas collection. It would certainly make sense for Kardashian to model them first (that is, if she hasn’t already…).

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Shorts: 5 Glamour Staffers, 1 Pair of Cutoffs, Here’s What Happened

Finding a flattering pair of denim cutoffs can be frustrating, but the hard work is always worth it in the end. Find a great pair of denim shorts and there’s a high chance you’ll want to live in them straight through Labor Day.

glamour-cutoffs-02

We asked five Glamour staffers to try on a pair of Gap’s highly-rated “1969 destructed slim denim shorts”—and, across the board, for women short and tall, curvy and boyish, the unanimous result was that they worked. Everyone found them comfortable, agreed they were flattering, and got a range of appreciative co-worker comments.

Here’s what we all discerned as key characteristics making these particular jean shorts awesome:

· They are embellishment-free. It’s tempting to want to pick a bold color or trendy accent, but skip the frou-frou to get the most timeless look.

· Skip the cuff. The added thickness of folded fabric can make thighs look larger than they really are. Plus, you can always cuff them yourselves, if you want.

· Look for a mid-thigh (or upper-mid-thigh) length. Any shorter will appear short on most women, while hemlines that approach the knee break the line of the leg in an awkward spot.

When it comes to length, some women wished for shorts a little longer—to be fair, they didn’t always pass the fingertip test. Pro tip: If you’re looking for a longer, looser fit, try the next size up—they’ll be slouchier, plus you can shimmy them down to sit lower on your hips.

So That Happened: Obama’s Cuba Plan Turned Some Folks Into Wind-Up-Toys Of Outrage

So, that happened: This week, President Barack Obama announced that the United States would make an effort to normalize relations with Cuba, ending a decades-long policy of distance that had been surprisingly effective in doing nothing in particular. We’ll talk about the new plan, and the people who are hopping mad about it.

“Those two, when they got the news, I don’t know. It was like they became weird wind-up-toys of outrage.” — Jason Linkins

Meanwhile, a Seth Rogen-James Franco comedy has been canceled, because North Korea apparently now dictates what movies we watch in our spare time? How did something so simple get so out of hand?

“Films that relate to things in North Korea will not be made now and that is just outrageous. Something has got to give.” — Arthur Delaney

And finally, we’re taking a look back at 2014 — a great year for garbage monsters. What are our least-favorite things about the past year? Well, this is going to take a while.

“2014 has been f*cking terrible and at least in the world of public affairs, there have been almost no redeeming aspects to this terrible year.” — Zach Carter

Ron Howard presented the top prize at the Hollywood Film Awards on Friday night, honoring David Fincher’s “Gone Girl.” Ben Affleck accepted the award on behalf of Fincher and the producers and used his moment on stage to comment on his infamous shower scene from the film. Affleck sarcastically thanked Fincher for keeping the set cool during the sequence: “If you’re going to have one chance for America to see your junk, you want it to be cold.”

The actor used the rest of his speech to poke fun at Fincher, saying the director couldn’t be there to accept the award because he was still busy shooting the film. “Just one or two more takes, we’re gonna have it,” Affleck said, mocking Fincher’s reputation of demanding multiple takes. Fincher may have betrayed Affleck’s trust with the temperature conditions on set, but the actor is still hoping 3-D will make up for it.

10 Things You Won’t Believe Happened at Weddings I’ve Planned

I have learned never to say “I’ve seen it all” or to claim there’s nothing left that could surprise me in wedding planning. Just when I think there’s nothing left that could shock me, something whacky happens (like the bride’s father stripping down to his skivvies) and I’m wrong yet again. So I’ve given up claiming that I know everything that can happen at a wedding. I don’t. Even after eight years and almost 500 weddings, things shock and horrify me regularly.

Here are 10 things it’s hard to believe were happening at weddings I’ve planned — but they really did (and I have the PTWD (Post Traumatic Wedding Disorder) to prove it):

1. The grandfather of the bride physically attacking the father of the bride during cocktails just after the happy couple made their grand entrance. OMG – shocking! And Gramps got a good lick in and drew blood, so he had to leave before the wedding reception dinner. Otherwise, he would have been escorted out by security anyway. Always have a plan for when a fight breaks out between guests — but just hope it’s not the family members attacking each other.

2. The groom arriving 30 minutes late for his own wedding ceremony, dressed in shredded cutoffs, and then standing on a rock like the Karate Kid, balanced on one leg, throwing stones into the Caribbean Sea while all the guests watched from a distance thinking he’d lost his mind. Eventually, when I asked what he was doing, he replied “getting rid of the bad energy.” Um buddy, you’re making the bride sit in a car waiting for you to put your pants on. That’s called creating bad karma, not relieving it.

3. Two grooms were upset with the way the place cards had been set up on their head table. The problem was they hadn’t followed our chart — they’d created their own and the staff couldn’t follow it. We fixed the problem before the guests were seated for dinner, but the grooms were too drunk to care. They screamed and yelled at me every chance they got. Icing on the cake — when the toasts were finished and I handed them the microphone to thank their guests, they actually used that time to publicly eviscerate me to their 60-plus guests who had just spent three lovely days enjoying the events my company planned. It was humiliating, and yes, the guests (and their families) apologized for the grooms’ behavior. Perfect wedding otherwise but we never heard from them again. I think they were mortified when they sobered up.

4. Beautifully executed wedding for a Chicago couple with Mexican origins. After dinner, during the toasts, the Best Man got up and began toasting dead gang members and pouring shots on the ground in memory of/honor of “Vatos Locos.” Um, haven’t I heard of them in way too many FBI wanted file stories? Scary. You never know who your clients really are until they arrive at a destination wedding.

5. A bridesmaid (and cousin of the bride) who was recently out of rehab took ALL of her Methadone on the first night of a five-day wedding weekend and freaked out. She called the police for an escort to the ferry (she thought she was in danger) and holed up in posh hotel on the big island with her much older boyfriend and the stash of drugs she’d obtained between the ferry and the resort. Unfortunately, she took her bridesmaid dress with her. I had to hunt it down, threatened to send the police to her hotel room (I knew she had drugs from her voice), and arranged to have the dress flown back to Vieques Island for another girlfriend to wear within a few hours of the wedding. Not easy. Not fun. But we did it. Be prepared to capture the wedding attire if a wedding party member makes a run for it!

6. The Best Man forgot the groom’s suitcase on the ferry dock on the main island — the same suitcase that contained the wedding rings AND the bride’s engagement ring. Say what? NEVER EVER pack your rings. And the engagement ring belongs on the bride. The worst part was the drunk Best Man (a US Marine officer, I might add) didn’t know where he left it — on the dock, in the taxi, on the ferry — not a clue. I used my position as police community liaison to work with an Agente in the Policia de Puerto Rico to track the bag and find it in the Customs holding area on the other island where it had been stowed after being abandoned. I can’t believe they lost it, but I REALLY can’t believe we found it. They had it back within hours.

7. The Mother of the Bride became ill and had to be emergency transported off the island, vomiting blood. I literally hijacked the governor’s helicopter off the tarmac (my police pilot friend was there waiting to fly the Guv back from a meeting with our mayor) and got the pilot to fly the MoB to a hospital on the big island. That night, the mom checked out of the hospital against medical advice and returned to Vieques. By midday the next day, she was throwing up buckets of blood and lost consciousness, and I had to have her transported via ambulance and then Medevac helicopter. She almost died. And then she turned around 24 hours later and checked out of the hospital against medical advice again, and returned to the island for the wedding. We had to tell the bride we couldn’t take any more responsibility for helping transport her if another emergency occurred. Suicide by wedding? I think not.

8. Drunken wedding guests, out of control, doing shots, and being verbally abusive to the service staff is, unfortunately, not as uncommon as you would think. We’ve had to call the police on one occasion when the very large, frightening groomsmen were stealing liquor bottles, breaking centerpieces and generally causing mayhem at a $ 4 million villa. The key is to have enough of our staff on hand with these large groups and always have a security plan ready to go on a minute’s notice. Oh yes, we all wear headsets and know what’s going on all over the wedding property at all time.

9. Three wedding guests (sorority sisters of the bride) took acid at the beginning of the wedding ceremony (we learned the sordid deets from the bride later on). By the time dinner was through, they were tripping hard! They tried to eat out of the caterer’s garbage, then stripped naked and jumped into the pool with the seven-year-old ring bearer. Once we had them out of the pool and back in the villa, they jumped up onto tabletops to dance, semi-dressed in high heels. Asked to get off the tables, one girl (can’t say “young lady” and she wasn’t mature enough to be a “woman”) jumped on my husband and attacked him like a spider monkey. The DJs had to help pull her off of him. My husband, a retired SWAT commander, was not amused. Neither were the bride or groom. Know who you are inviting before you mail those invitations or take the risk of an unpleasant surprise.

10. We planned and executed a Wiccan wedding for a lovely couple from California who didn’t tell me that they were witches until a week prior to the wedding. But I was less surprised than the traditional Jewish Mother of the Bride from Cherry Hill, New Jersey, who learned her daughter would be married by a Wiccan priest instead of a rabbi at the wedding rehearsal. From me. Shortly after that, the groom had a hysterical temper tantrum about wanting to move the wedding to a different part of the beach where he felt the “energy” was better. The elderly Mother of the Bride, to her credit, did not have a stroke right then and there, but it was a close one. Watching her old lady friends having to wash their panty-hose covered feet in the ocean to be “purified” and smudged with sage before the ceremony was absolutely priceless. Lesson of the day, find out in advance if your brides and grooms are witches and whether the guests (especially their parents) know they’ll be attending a less-than-traditional wedding.

Now I’m on a roll but it will have to wait for another time — so many more fun stories to share from so many different kinds of weddings. End of day, know as much as you can about your wedding group in advance so you can be prepared for whatever might happen during the main event.

Happy wedding planning!

Jimmy Fallon’s Obama-Putin Call Shows What Really Happened… Maybe

“Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon claims to have received footage of the most recent call between President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin as the two discussed the crisis in Crimea.

In the clip above, Fallon’s Putin takes a swig of vodka, taunts the U.S. president on Obamacare, cites comic Yakov Smirnoff and mimics Putin’s weird laugh.

The pair even sing.

If calls between world leaders were really this much fun, the crisis would have been over ages ago.

Steve Wilkos Talks Jerry Springer And The Craziest Thing That Ever Happened (VIDEO)

Any Jerry Springer viewer knows how crazy the talk show can get, but Steve Wilkos’ story may take the cake.

While on HuffPost Live this week, the TV host opened up about a rather inappropriate moment on the notoriously dramatic talk show.

“Two guys were fighting, ripping their shirts off,” he explained. “This one guy gets his shirt taken off and he has a perfect formed female breast … and it’s gorgeous.”

The best part? He said he was born that way. Lady Gaga would be proud!
