Hollywood’s Loudest Trump Naysayers Are Joining Forces

On Friday, The Huffington Post will partner with Funny or Die to promote the 21st-century telethon Stand for Rights: A Benefit for the ACLU. The Facebook Live event will gather celebrities to raise money for the American Civil Liberties Union, which has opposed certain of President Donald Trump’s actions since his election.

Packed with beloved A-listers including Tom Hanks, Jon Hamm and Tina Fey, just about every famous person known for speaking out against Trump is going to be there. The full list has not yet been released, but it’s basically a celebrity Trump-resistance supergroup.

The ACLU previously joined forces with Hollywood during the 2017 Oscars, when the organization encouraged major nominees to wear blue ribbons in support of its work “protecting the rights of everyone in America.”

Stand for Rights will begin at 7 p.m. ET on March 31, streaming live in a few places including the Facebook pages of The Huffington Post and Funny Or Die

As of today, the event released a few more names such as “Saturday Night Live” members Cecily Strong and Colin Jost. More names will be made public shortly, but some of the celebrities scheduled to participate are outlined below.

 

Alec Baldwin, whose name is essentially synonymous with Trump at the moment.

Baldwin debuted his Trump impression on “Saturday Night Live” before the election, but obviously his take is even more relevant now that Trump is president.

Besides frequently tweeting and retweeting anti-Trump messages over Twitter, Baldwin plans to voice an upcoming audiobook as Trump

 

Tina Fey, who recommended Baldwin for the Trump gig and criticized Trump elsewhere.

”SNL” overlord Lorne Michaels claimed that Fey brought the idea of Baldwin-as-Trump to him.

In an interview with David Letterman for The Hollywood Reporter, Fey elaborated on the Baldwin-Trump connection:

Fey: But I could reassemble them, sir. Did you see that my friend Mr. [Alec] Baldwin is in a Twitter feud with our president-elect? [Baldwin responded to Trump’s complaints about “SNL” parodies of him.]

Letterman: Good for him.

Fey: At one level, it just makes me feel sick for the state of the world because it’s so beneath a president, but also my feeling is: “You think you’re good at being a jerk on Twitter? You will now face the grandmaster of being a jerk on Twitter.”

 

Amy Poehler, who revived Leslie Knope from “Parks and Recreation” to contrast the character’s hopeful idealism with Trump’s hateful rhetoric.

Following Trump’s election victory, Poehler wrote a letter as her Leslie Knope character (who kept a picture of Hillary Clinton in her office) encouraging people to donate to the ACLU. Here’s the introduction:

Dear America,

Amidst the confusion, and despair, and disbelief, it was suggested to me by a very close friend of mine (I won’t say her name, to protect her identity) (Ann. It was Ann) that perhaps a few people would enjoy hearing my thoughts on this election. So I sat down at my computer, cleared my head, and opened a document. Then I started crying. So I had some hot chocolate, and my close friend (Ann) rubbed my back for a while, and I got myself together, and sat down. And started crying. Then more Ann comforting me, and more hot chocolate, and back and forth like that for about six hours or so, the chain of hot-chocolate-and-back-rubs only interrupted briefly when I had to run to the store for more hot chocolate packets (“Just give me all of them, all the boxes,” I remember saying, through tears, to a very scared stockroom boy) and now I am ready to go.

Read the full letter here.

 

Mahershala Ali, who used his SAG Awards acceptance speech to indirectly criticize Trump’s ban on refugees and tone on Muslims.

The Screen Actors Guild Awards occurred shortly after the president signed an executive order banning people from Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S. During an acceptance speech for his performance in “Moonlight,” Ali spoke at length about his faith and the value of immigration. Here’s an excerpt from the full speech:

We kind of get caught up in the minutia and the details that make us all different. I think there’s two ways of seeing that: There’s an opportunity to see the texture of that person, the characteristics that make them unique, and then there’s the opportunity to go to war about it, and to say that that person is different than me, and I don’t like you, so let’s battle.

My mother is an ordained minister. I’m a Muslim. She didn’t do backflips when I called her to tell her I converted 17 years ago. But I tell you now ― you put things to the side, and I’m able to see her and she’s able to see me. We love each other. The love has grown. And that stuff is minutia. It’s not that important. 

 

Michael Moore, who was one of the most notable people to predict Trump’s win last year.

Moore predicted all the way back in July that Trump would win the presidency ― a claim that garnered particular attention after the election.

Since then, the filmmaker has inspired more headlines by claiming Trump will get us killed and by referring to him as a “so-called president.” Moore has also used his platform to highlight protests against Trump’s policies and created a blueprint to resistance

 

Tracy Morgan, who said he’s “going back” into a coma thanks to Trump.

Tracy Morgan was in a coma for about two weeks after a car crash in 2014. Over roughly the last year, the comedian has slowly returned to show business, a path that has included interviews with longtime friends such as Jimmy Fallon.

On the “Tonight Show” in early 2016, Fallon mentioned how strange it must be for Morgan to learn about current events he missed during his recovery. Morgan responded: “Yeah, things are different. Donald Trump is leading in the polls. I’m going back.”

Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Tom Hanks, Tracy Morgan, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Michael Moore, Padma Lakshmi and a whole host of other stars are teaming up for Stand for Rights: A Benefit for the ACLU. Donate now and join us at 7 p.m. ET on Friday, March 31, on Facebook Live. #standforrights2017

Richard Jaeckel, Hollywood’s Man of Character

Richard Jaeckel, Hollywood’s Man of Character


Character actor Richard Jaeckel worked five decades in Hollywood alongside the industry’s biggest names. Noted for tough-guy portrayals, he appeared in such classic westerns and war films as Sands of Iwo Jima (1949), The Gunfighter (1950), 3:10 to Yuma (1957), and The Dirty Dozen (1967). Bringing strength and integrity to his roles, he was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Sometimes a Great Notion (1970). A World War II veteran and Merchant Marine, he was respected in the surfing and fitness communities for his ageless athleticism. His performance as Turk in Come Back, Little Sheba (1952) was groundbreaking for iron-pumping actors wanting to be taken seriously for their dramatic abilities. This revealing portrait of the life of a working character actor covers Jaeckel’s noteworthy career through each of his film and television appearance, from Guadalcanal Diary (1943) to Baywatch (1994). Recollections and behind the scenes stories from those he knew and worked with offer an in-depth look at the dedication and professionalism it takes to make it in Hollywood.

The Gender Gap Persists, Even Among Hollywood’s Most Rich And Powerful

Female actors in Hollywood are earning less than their male counterparts. On Friday, The Daily Beast released information from the Sony hack which reveals that Jennifer Lawrence received a smaller portion of the back-end compensation for “American Hustle” than her male co-stars, Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale and Jeremy Renner.

But according to a recent graphic released by The Washington Post (via the New York Film Academy), Lawrence is not alone. In the year 2013, the 10 highest earning male actors earned between $ 32 million and $ 75 million dollars, while the 10 highest earning female actors earned between $ 11 million and $ 33 million.


The Washington Post also notes that the charts points to other forms of discrimination faced by women in Hollywood:

The chart also suggests that age is a bigger factor for female actresses: Their median age is 34.8, while the median age for male actors is 46.5 … Part of the pay gap is undoubtedly due to women’s lower representation overall: Less than a third of speaking characters in the top 500 films between 2007 and 2012 were women, and only 10.7 percent of movies featured a balanced cast where half of the characters were female.

Earlier this month, leaked data also revealed a gender gap among Sony executives: of the 17 employees at the company who earn $ 1 million or more per year, only one is a woman.

The Definitive List Of Hollywood’s Most Lovable Husbands

Bad boys had their moment in Hollywood. Now, it’s the sweethearts that reign supreme.

Below are eight great celebrity husbands who have no shortage of adorable things to say about their spouses. Let the swooning commence…now.

Matt Damon

“We have a two week rule. I’m not away for more than two weeks. I think you need to be with the person you love as much as possible. My wife is my soul mate. I don’t like being apart from her.” – Damon on wife Luciana Barroso

John Krasinski

“It was one of those things where I wasn’t really looking for a relationship and I was thinking I’m going to take my time in L.A. Then I met her and I was so nervous. I was like, ‘Oh god, I think I’m going to fall in love with her.’ As I shook her hand I went, ‘I like you.'” – Krasinski on wife Emily Blunt

John Legend

“How many times do I have to tell you/ Even when you’re crying you’re beautiful too/ The world is beating you down, I’m around through every mood/ You’re my downfall, you’re my muse/ My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues/ I can’t stop singing, it’s ringing, in my head for you.” – Lyrics to John Legend’s song “All Of Me”, written about wife Chrissy Teigen

Hugh Jackman

“She was very beautiful. She was unbelievably fun — this energy, this spirit — irrepressible. And she had a confidence in herself. I had a massive crush on her instantly.” – Jackman on when he first met wife Deborra-Lee Furness

Jesse Tyler Ferguson

“The first thing I noticed about Justin was that he has a beautiful smile. I don’t think there was a moment where I was like, ‘There it is. I’m in love.’ It was a very slow progression of things that would drop in like, ‘Oh I love that about that person. I love that about that person.’ And they all sort of accumulate into what our love is now.” – Ferguson on husband Justin Mikita

Aaron Paul

“Let me tell you, my friend, I will be in the honeymoon phase until I leave this planet. Getting married to Lauren was the greatest accomplishment of my life.” – Paul on wife Lauren Parsekian

Jimmy Fallon

“There’ll be nights when you’re sitting on your couch, and you’re with your beautiful wife, who you can’t believe married you, and your beautiful baby, who you feel endlessly grateful you were able to have. And your dog… and you’re watching ‘Real Housewives’ getting into fistfights on TV. And you go, ‘How great is my life?’ I’m so happy right now.” – Fallon on wife Nancy Juvonen

Chris Pratt

“I knew I wanted to marry her pretty soon [after I met her]. It took a while for me to admit it, because it would be crazy to be like, ‘I want to marry you’ the first day I met her. But I could have!” – Pratt on wife Anna Faris

Golden Globes Facts: A Look Back At Hollywood’s Most Unpredictable Award Show

As we gear up for Sunday’s Golden Globes ceremony, which is guaranteed to provide more of the awards’ usual zaniness, let’s take a look back at some Globes trivia.

The Globes used to hand out two New Star of the Year accolades, one male and one female. They were discontinued in 1983. Winners included Robert Redford, Dustin Hoffman, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mia Farrow, Diana Ross and Bette Midler.

Unsurprisingly, Meryl Streep holds the record for the most nominations. She has 28 nods and eight wins, for “Kramer vs. Kramer,” “The French Lieutenant’s Woman,” “Sophie’s Choice,” “Adaptation.,” “Angels in America,” “The Devil Wears Prada,” “Julie & Julia” and “The Iron Lady.”

(Streep and Nicole Kidman celebrate their 2003 wins for “Adaptation.” and “The Hours,” respectively. Streep co-starred in “The Hours” and was nominated opposite Kidman for Best Actress – Drama.)

For many years, the Globes had no host and awards were handed out by journalists in attendance. That changed in 1958 when the Rat Pack stormed the stage and took over unofficial hosting duties. Ricky Gervais was the show’s first hosts since John Larroquette and Janine Turner emceed in 1995.

Four actors have gone home with two awards in the same year: Sigourney Weaver (1989, for “Gorillas in the Mist: The Story of Dian Fossey” and “Working Girl”), Joan Plowright (1993, for “Enchanted April” and “Stalin”), Helen Mirren (2007, for “The Queen” and “Elizabeth I”) and Kate Winslet (2010, for “Revolutionary Road” and “The Reader”). Julia-Louis Dreyfus, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Idris Elba are among the stars who have a chance to join that list this year.

The Globes’ first trophy originated in 1945, one year after the inaugural awards. Members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association held a contest to design a statuette that would reflect their aim to honor the best in film. The group’s president, Marina Cisternas, crafted a golden globe with a filmstip wrapped around it and mounted on a pedestal.

(Lois Maxwell is seen with her 1948 trophy for New Actress of the Year, which she won for “That Hagen Girl.”)

Miss Golden Globe was instated in 1963. This year, Sosie Bacon (below) will take over the duties. Previous Miss Golden Globes who’ve gone on to see fame include Melanie Griffith, Laura Dern, Joely Fisher, Tara Reid and Freddie Prinze Jr., who is one of only a few Mr. Golden Globes.

The television prizes were added in 1956. Since then, only one other category — Best Animated Feature, which was introduced in 2007 — has joined the roster of awards. “Cars,” “Ratatouille,” “WALL-E,” “Up,” “Toy Story 3,” “The Adventures of Tintin” and “Brave” have since won.

Robert Redford is this year’s nominee whose first win was the longest ago. (He took home 1966’s Most Promising Newcomer honor, for “Inside Daisy Clover.”)

Lupita Nyong’o’s (“12 Years a Slave”) and Barkhad Abdi’s (“Captain Phillips”) nominations are in honor of their first film roles ever.

The Cecil B. DeMille Award has been handed out 60 times. Only a dozen women have been the recipients. Judy Garland remains both the first female and youngest winner in the award’s history. The oldest was 90-year-old studio mogul Samuel Goldwyn. Only two African-Americans have won: Sidney Poitier and Morgan Freeman. This year’s honoree, the notoriously awards-adverse Woody Allen, has said he will not attend the ceremony. Diane Keaton will accept in his stead.

Allen is taking a note out of Marlon Brando’s playbook. Brando refused the Golden Globe he won in 1973 for “The Godfather,” using it as opportunity to protest U.S. “imperialism and racism.”

Kerry Washington is the first black female to crack a leading-actress TV category (comedy or drama) since Regina Young was up for “I’ll Fly Away” in 1992.

Six of 2014’s TV actor nominees received film nods in previous years.: Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright, Don Cheadle, Michael J. Fox, Jon Voight, Janet McTeer. Julia-Louis Dreyfus joins that list thanks to her dual nominations this year, for HBO’s “Veep” and the movie “Enough Said.”
julia louisdreyfus golden globes

Critics were so shocked when “The Tourist” and “Burlesque” racked up multiple high-profile nominations in 2011 that reports accused Sony, the movies’ distributor, of bribing HFPA voters with an all-expenses-paid trip to Las Vegas and a meet-and-greet with Cher.
johnny depp golden globes

The Globes’ reputation for filling nomination slots with critically panned movies didn’t begin with “The Tourist” and “Burlesque.” The most infamous example came in 1982 when Pia Zadora, star of the lambasted movie “Butterfly,” took home New Star of the Year the same year she garnered Worst Actress and Worst New Star at the Golden Raspberry Awards. Reports then surfaced that Zadora’s husband, Israeli multimillionaire Meshulam Riklis, had flown HFPA members to Vegas — sound familiar? — to watch Zadora perform.

Other surprising nods in recent years include Kevin Spacey for “Casino Jack,” Sarah Jessica Parker for “The Family Stone,” “Patch Adams” for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Jim Carrey for “Liar Liar.”

If either “American Hustle” or “12 Years a Slave” — this year’s most-nominated movies — sweeps up all of its categories, it would be the first movie to do so since 1975’s “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.”
american hustle amy adams image

Christine Lahti had to be summoned out of the bathroom when she won in 1998 for Best Actress in a Television Series – Drama.

“Nashville” (1975) is the most-nominated movie in Globes history, with nine nods. (It only took home one trophy, for Best Original Song.) “Cabaret,” “Bugsy” and “Titanic” each received eight nominations.
