Home Alone and Sopranos Star John Heard Has Died

John Heard — the actor known for his role in several iconic ’80s and ’90s movies including BigBeaches, and Home Alone — died Friday in Palo Alto, California, the Santa Clara County medical examiner’s office confirms to PEOPLE. He was 71.

Heard’s rep did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The details of his death have not yet been relesaed.

According to TMZ, the Washington, D.C. native was found dead in a hotel where he was reportedly recovering from a “minor back surgery” he had on Wednesday at Stanford Medical Center.

With a four-decade career in Hollywood and more than 200 credits on stage and screen, Heard appeared in a number of well-known projects — including Gladiator, The SopranosNCIS: Los Angeles, and The Pelican Brief.

His most popular role perhaps came in 1990’s Home Alone, where he stared as Peter McCallister — the living (yet forgetful) dad to Macaulay Culkin‘s Kevin. Heard would reprise the role in the 1992 sequel.

He made his Broadway debut in 1973’s Warp and would return to the Broadway stage three more times —including in the 1983 revival of Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie, where he played the famed Gentleman Caller alongside Oscar winner Jessica Tandy.

This is a developing story.

Never Heard Of ‘Dry Drowning?’ What You Need To Know About The Deadly Condition

The Question: Dry drowning was recently ruled as the suspected cause of death for a 4-year-old boy from Texas. What is this medical condition and what are the signs that someone might be suffering from it?

The Answer: We don’t yet know what happened in the tragic case of the child in Texas, but drowning is an issue of heightened concern in the summer. 

About 3,500 people die per year in the U.S. due to unintentional drowning. One in five of those deaths is a child under the age of 14. And there’s a large disparity by race: African-American children between the ages of 5-19 are 5.5 times as likely to drown in swimming pools than their white peers.

But to understand any of the terminology about drowning ― and it is confusing ― it’s important to understand what happens when someone drowns. 

“Wet drowning,” which is drowning while submerged under water, is what most people think of when they hear the word “drowning.” This refers to when a spasm in the larynx ― a muscular organ in the throat  ― occurs and relaxes the opening to the throat’s airway, allowing water to enter the lungs. 

In the event of dry drowning, on the other hand, a laryngeal spasm also occurs, but the muscle at the top of the airway doesn’t completely relax, and so less water enters the lungs, according to Dr. Wassam Rahman, medical director of the emergency center at Johns Hopkin’s All Children’s Hospital. 

There’s no clinical difference in the outcome of wet versus dry, Rahman says. In both cases, without medical intervention, death is quick: The laryngeal spasm makes it hard to breathe and oxygen is cut off from the brain. Usually an autopsy determines if a death was wet or dry ― and one can quickly die in a body of water, or shortly after getting out of it, by dry drowning.

But there’s an additional danger with dry drowning ― it could lead to “secondary drowning,” a deadly and hard to spot condition if you don’t know what to look for.

“Suppose a child ducks their head and chokes on some water and is fine,” Rahman told HuffPost. “Then within 24 hours he starts to have some respiratory symptoms ― [secondary drowning] is a delayed [reaction].” 

During secondary drowning, a little bit of water gets inside the lungs from say, a near-drowning experience or even something as seemingly benign as being tossed around by waves. 

The only difference with secondary drowning is that in the hours following, the lungs respond to the trapped water by swelling, essentially starting to pool with the body’s own water, Rahman explained. Ultimately, the fluid in the lungs makes it hard for the body to produce oxygen. Oxygen blood levels eventually drop, which can cause a slowed heart rate and, in rare cases, cardiac arrest.

If a child develops a cough a couple of hours after swimming or submersion, or cannot catch his or her breath, something might be wrong, according to Rahman. 

Chest pain, vomiting, irritability or a drop in energy in the hours after swallowing a large amount of water can also be signs of secondary drowning, according to the American Osteopathic Association. 

If you see any of these signs, get medical attention immediately since patient outcome gets worse with the progression of time, Rahman notes.

And watch your kiddos when they’re in the pool or ocean: Drowning is the second most common cause of death by unintentional injury, behind car accidents, among children ages 1-4 years-old, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

For every child that dies from drowning, another five go to the emergency room for nonfatal submersion injuries, according to the CDC. Nonfatal drowning injuries can cause severe brain damage, including long-term learning disabilities, memory impairment and the loss of basic cognitive function. 

Some of the top factors that influence drowning risk are lack of swimming ability, a lack of barriers, such as a pool fence, to prevent unsupervised water access and a lack of close supervision while swimming, according to the CDC. 

You can never have too many eyes on kids when they’re playing in the water. And learning CPR is a great skill. Seconds count: The more quickly CPR is started on a drowning victim, the better the chance their outcome will improve.

Amber Heard And Elon Musk Make Their Romance Insta-Official

Actress Amber Heard and billionaire Elon Musk have taken their relationship to the next level ― showing off their togetherness on Instagram.

On Sunday, the two both posted photos of a cozy moment ― complete with cutesy captions ― at restaurant Moo Moo on the Gold Coast of Australia.

Her arm cradled on Musk’s shoulder and a lipstick kiss clearly visible on his left cheek, Heard went with a one-word punchline: “Cheeky.”

Heard is reportedly in Australia to film “Aquaman.” The two were spotted earlier in the day ziplining and walking arm-in-arm at the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, People noted.

Last summer the two were already reportedly “hanging out,” but perhaps their social media sharing confirmed that the romance is more than just that.

Heard’s nasty divorce from Johnny Depp became final in January while Musk, the Tesla co-founder who has five children (another died at 10 weeks old in 2002), reportedly settled his divorce from Talulah Riley in 2016, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

Correction: The article previously said that Musk had a child who died at 10 months old. The correct age was 10 weeks.

James Cameron Cried The First Time He Heard James Horner’s ‘Titanic’ Theme

Legendary film composer James Horner died in a plane crash on Monday, but he will always be remembered for his music.

Horner was best known for his two-time Oscar-winning score to James Cameron’s “Titanic,” as well as his scores to “Braveheart,” “Apollo 13,” “Avatar,” “Field of Dreams” and “A Beautiful Mind.” The 61-year-old, who has composed music for over 100 films, was also an avid pilot. The two-seater single-engine S312 Tucano he was flying on Monday crashed in Santa Barbara, California.

While many celebrities, collaborators and fellow musicians have remembered Horner on Twitter, Cameron paid tribute to the composer on The Hollywood Reporter’s site on Tuesday. The “Titanic” director looked back on working with Horner on everything from the first project they both worked on, “Battle Beyond the Stars,” up to “Avatar.” Although the two got off to a rough start while working on “Aliens” together because of timing issues, the filmmaker said that he knew he had to work with Horner again on “Titanic,” telling THR, “I thought, ‘I don’t care what happened, I want to work with James.'”

Cameron remembered the first time he heard Horner’s concept for the “Titanic” theme. “I drove over to his house,” Cameron said of Horner, “and he sat at the piano and said, ‘I see this as the main theme for the ship.’ He played it once through and I was crying.” When the director heard Horner play his idea for “Rose’s Theme,” he said he knew the musician had “cracked the heart and soul” of the movie.

The filmmaker told Entertainment Weekly that he cried during every song Horner played that day in his studio. “I said to him, ‘You’ve done it,'” Cameron told EW. “He said, ‘I haven’t done anything yet.’ And I said, ‘James, you’ve done it.'”

For the full tribute, head to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Secret American Eagle Brand You’ve Definitely Never Heard Of

As overinformed and TMI’ed as we all are, it’s always a little bit mind-blowing when you realize there’s a secret something out there you haven’t heard of. Such is the case for American Eagle‘s brand-new line of easy, comfy basics, under the name Don’t Ask Why. Pieces include tanks, tees, pants, and dresses, starting at $ 20. Oh, and it’s all one-size-fits-most.

american-eagle-dont-ask-why-clothing

The fits-all approach is an interesting one, since, without a doubt, there’s a large range of bodies out there (and all are beautiful). Notes about the collection speak of “over- and under-size silhouettes,” which is something you see often with wide-range sizing since those are the cuts that will accommodate most. What might look like a billowy, stolen-from-the-guys top on a petite figure could fit like a traditional tee on a taller, bustier woman.

“We designed in one size to increase our speed to market in emerging silhouettes and fabrications,” American Eagle Outfitters global brand president Chad Kessler told us of the made-in-Italy pieces. “It’s a fully realized brand experience for our customers outside of American Eagle stores and introduces a new way to shop.”

A physical pop-up shop is coming to New York City’s SoHo this summer, opening next Thursday and sticking around through mid-August. If you’re not in the area, you can already start shopping online.

Let’s talk about this: Do you like the idea of one-size-fits-all, or does it feel off in regards to how different women’s bodies can be?
