Twin Peaks Creator David Lynch Says Trump Could Be ‘One of the Greatest Presidents in History’

David Lynch thinks Donald Trump‘s presidency has disrupted the America’s political system in a good way.

The Twin Peaks creator and director spoke to The Guardian about his political leanings, revealing that he voted for Bernie Sanders in the primary and thinks he voted Libertarian in the election. But although he didn’t support Trump, he now feels the real estate mogul’s administration could change the country for the better.

“He could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history because he has disrupted the thing so much,” Lynch said. “No one is able to counter this guy in an intelligent way.”

While Lynch says he supports an outsider changing things, he doesn’t think Trump is doing a good job himself. He just hopes his win opens the door to more options to serve as president.

“Our so-called leaders can’t take the country forward, can’t get anything done,” Lynch said. “Like children, they are. Trump has shown all this.

Newlywed Kelsea Ballerini Wants to Have Kids ‘One Day’ But Will Wait — Because ‘I’m 24!’

Kelsea Ballerini and Morgan Evans are married now, but don’t expect the Nashville couple to expand their family any time soon.

“I’m 24, I’m not in a rush,” Ballerini tells PEOPLE. “It’s something we’re both stoked to do — one day down the track.”

The “Legends” singer and her fellow country crooner, 32, tied the knot Dec. 2 on the beach in an intimate ceremony in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

The wedding came at a particularly exciting and stressful time for the bride. The Grammy nominee spent much of 2017 on the road opening for Lady Antebellum, and in November, the star released her sophomore album, Unapologetically.

Watch People Weddings: Kelsea Ballerini & Morgan Evans, available now, on PeopleTV. Go to, or download the PeopleTV app on your favorite mobile or connected TV device.

“My album is like a chronological story, and it ends with the whole story of meeting him, and then being with him forever,” says Ballerini. “It’s very fitting that we got married and kind of end the story where the record ends it.”

But Ballerini and “Kiss Somebody” singer Evans’ story is just beginning, and the couple say they’re looking forward to “everything.”

For much more on Morgan Evans and Kelsea Ballerini’s wedding, including more exclusive photos, pick up the latest issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands everywhere Friday.

“The great thing about both of us is we both wanted to be rock stars. That’s our dream, that’s our goal,” says Ballerini. “When I was younger I was dreaming about touring and stuff, and same with him. So I think it’s just been us making the dream together rather than having it separately and then combining it.”

Ballerini and Evans’s whirlwind romance began in March 2016. They cohosted the CMCs, an Australian country music award show, and sparks flew at the afterparty, where they shared their first kiss. They began dating as soon as they returned to Nashville, and nine months later, on Christmas Day, Evans popped the question.

For more coverage, follow our country magazine on Flipboard.

“Nine months seems like a short amount of time,” says Evans, but “it was pretty obvious something awesome was happening.”

Now with their wedding behind them, the pair look forward to an increasingly busy 2018, as both have jam-packed tour schedules. But distance won’t get them down.

“When you can do everything you want and then share it with someone,” says Ballerini, “that makes for a full life.”

Chad Michael Murray’s ‘Sun Records’ Nude Scene Is Reminiscent Of That ‘One Tree Hill’ Moment

One Tree Hill” lovers, unite! (Or if you’re a “Dawson’s Creek” or “Gilmore Girls” fan, that works, too.)

Our early-aughts crush Chad Michael Murray is giving us a treat on his new show, “Sun Records,” and stripping down to nothing but a towel (hanging from you-know-where) in a scene reminiscent of that “One Tree Hill” nothing-but-basketballs-down-the-high-school-hallway moment. 

“Everybody keeps saying, ‘Nothing but a towel or a basketball with a hole cut out in it,’ which, by the way, that’s how that scene actually went down. It was a foamy basketball, so it wasn’t a real basketball, but we tried that and trust me, it did not hide … the real one,” Murray told The Huffington Post of the “OTH” scene during a Build Series interview on Thursday, continuing, “So, we had to find a foam basketball and they cut a hole out in it so you could just [motions] … you get the gist. And that was, what, Episode 2 of ‘One Tree Hill,’ I think? My goodness, like, ‘Hey guys, when am I not going to be naked on set?’”

It was Season 1, Episode 3, when Lucas Scott does that infamous walk, but who’s keeping track?

As for why Murray decided to get in the buff for “Sun Records,” the actor said his character, the famous 1950s record executive Sam Phillips, was simply flirting with his next-door neighbor. 

“It’s done tastefully and it’s done beautifully and [it was] super uncomfortable,” Murray joked. “Our neighbor in the show is basically the Avon lady and I was like, ‘Gosh, this is such a good relationship, let’s make it something!’ I decided Sam has the biggest crush on her in the weirdest way, so every time Nadine comes to the house, I wanted to push the envelope, and this is where it came. That wasn’t what the scene initially was, but that’s what it became.”

Still, Murray said this naked moment was a little more embarrassing to do than the “OTH” one.

“We’re bringing it back but, you know, this is the dad-bod version of me.” 

Here’s the “Sun Records” scene:

”Sun Records” is on Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on CMT. Watch Chad Michael Murray’s full Build Series interview below.

Disney Was 2016’s Box Office Champ, With ‘Rogue One’ Winning New Year’s Weekend

As 2016 came to a close, the year’s box office statistics were cemented: Disney reigned supreme. 

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” maintained the No. 1 spot. Its estimated $ 50 million New Year’s weekend intake brings the movie’s total domestic grosses to about $ 439 million, making it the second-highest-grossing release of 2016. The inaugural stand-alone “Star Wars” installment is second in yearly receipts only to the summer sequel “Finding Dory,” another Disney offering.

It’s largely thanks to the Mouse House that 2016’s overall grosses topped 2015’s by 2 percent. The record-setting $ 11.37 billion in North American ticket sales defies the many Hollywood sequels that underperformed. Disney boasts seven of the year’s 15 highest-grossing films. (The others are “Captain America: Civil War,” “The Jungle Book,” “Zootopia,” “Doctor Strange” and “Moana.”) Collectively, Disney made a whopping $ 1 billion more than the second-most-lucrative studio, Warner Bros., which released “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” “Suicide Squad” and “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.”

Despite an impressive year on paper, the number of people going to high-profile franchise installments compared to the lower-budgeted films that once drove the box office has grown even more divided. Of 2016’s 30 highest-grossing movies, only four are live-action originals: “Central Intelligence,” “Sully,” “Bad Moms” and “Arrival.” But this weekend offered a couple of exceptions, most notably “Fences” (which came in No. 5) and “La La Land” (No. 7). The former, directed by and starring Denzel Washington, collected $ 10.1 million in 2,301 theaters. “La La Land,” an Oscar front-runner starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, accumulated about $ 9.5 million in 750 locations, making it the year’s most successful limited release. The Damien Chazelle-directed musical is on track to have pocketed a dazzling $ 37 million in total by the end of Monday. 

Also hitting the Top 10 as 2016 turned into 2017: the animated jukebox musical “Sing” (No. 2), the underperforming Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt vehicle “Passengers” (No. 3), Disney’s “Moana” (No. 4), the comedy “Why Him?” (No. 6) and the video-game adaptation “Assassin’s Creed” (No. 8). As of Sunday’s estimates, “Manchester by the Sea,” “Collateral Beauty” and “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” are competing for the final two spots.

As is the tendency during the holidays, when Oscar season is in full force, the specialty box office lit up. “Hidden Figures” made a splash on 25 screens, bringing its cumulative grosses to roughly $ 2.5 million, ahead of the race dramedy’s Jan. 6 wide release. The other big winner was “20th Century Women,” the Annette Bening vehicle that enjoyed a $ 29,000-per-screen average in four theaters.

Columbia Sportswear Develops ‘Rogue One’ Limited-Edition Jackets

GOING ROGUE: As far as movie fans go, “Star Wars” followers are known to be more zealous than most. And now thanks to Columbia Sportswear, they can dress the part for “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.”
Working in tandem with Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media, the company has developed three styles of jackets inspired by “Rogue One” characters Sergeant Jyn Erso, Captain Cassian Andor and the Imperial Death Trooper.
The limited-edition cinematic venture is a first for Columbia Sportswear, which will offer the trio of products through it’s web site and select stores starting Dec. 9. The $ 400 Jyn Erso Rebel jacket is a stretch twill cotton jacket with leather details on the sleeves. The style borrows from the look of one worn by Felicity Jones, who plays Erso. Its quilted insulated vest can be worn in its own or as a base layer. More heavy-duty is the $ 500 Captain Cassian Andor Rebel Parka, a parka with a detachable sherpa-lined hood with faux fur trim detail. The waterproof breathable jacket also has Omni-Heatä Reflective lining, which is meant to help the wearer retain heat.

Sure Looks Like Grand Moff Tarkin Is Going To Be In ‘Rogue One’

At first glance, the biggest news regarding the newest “Rogue One” trailer would seem to be what sits underneath it on YouTube: an announcement that “Star Wars” fans can finally start ordering advanced tickets for the fast-approaching movie as of midnight. 

But around six seconds into the ad, which was released Sunday, we see an old man staring out at the Death Star for a moment so brief that you probably missed it. Here’s a screengrab for you to inspect. 

That blurry outline right there has “Star Wars” fans giddy, and that’s because we have good reason to believe the man standing there is Grand Moff Tarkin, the wonderfully villainous commander of the Death Star in the original “Star Wars” film, 1977’s “Episode IV ― A New Hope.”

Remember when the bad guys destroyed Princess Leia’s home planet of Alderaan? Yeah, that was Grand Moff Tarkin.

Grand Moff Tarkin ended up dying at the end of a “Episode IV” when Luke Skywalker blew up the Death Star, but that’s no issue here. “Rogue One” takes place between the events of “Episode III — Revenge of the Sith” and “Episode IV.” In fact, in “Rogue One,” the Rebels try to steal the design schematics of the Death Star, so it only makes sense that the weapon’s commander would be back.

The question then becomes, how? Peter Cushing, the man who played Grand Moff Tarkin, died in 1994. But last year, The Daily Mail reported that the Star Wars franchise might digitally recreate the late actor for the film. It seemed far-fetched at the time. But now? Much less so.

‘One Million Moms’ Is Going Totally Ballistic Over This New Zales Ad

Protesters in Standing Rock are being brutalized, white supremacists are rallying in Washington, D.C., and we’re hurtling toward a climate disaster. But don’t worry, anti-gay group One Million Moms is tackling the real problems facing our nation. Namely, a jewelry commercial showing a nice lesbian couple getting married.

The moral panic-enthusiasts released a statement this week decrying Zales for the new ad that, in a montage of couples and families, includes two women in wedding dresses happily exchanging vows.

“Zales is using public airwaves to subject families to the decay of morals and values, and belittle the sanctity of marriage in an attempt to redefine marriage,” wrote One Million Moms, apparently unaware that the actual definition of marriage already includes same-sex unions.

Their statement instructs fellow bigots to travel to Zales stores and tell managers (who surely have absolutely nothing to do with the company’s advertorial decisions) that they won’t shop there due to the commercial.

There are, of course, some legitimate reasons to criticize Zales, like promoting the huge scam of diamond engagement rings in the first place. But their inclusive commercial isn’t one of them.

How Do You Know When a Beauty Product Is ‘the One’?

(Photo: SuperStock/Corbis)

By Jean Godfrey June

Both the dazzling appeal and the sinking horror of being a beauty editor is that a flood of shiny new products wash over your desk each day, free of charge. Your job is to try and try and try them — forever in search of something better. Even if you start to fall for something, fidelity is a sort of death, in terms of constantly coming up with new things to recommend to your readers. But in spite of it all, you still somehow manage to find the Infallible, the Kryptonite, the Desert-Island-Can’t-Live-Without, the One, the Undying.

Related: 25 Famous Women on the Best Advice They’ve Ever Given — or Received

Many of the items in my makeup bag have been there, faithfully replenished, for at least a decade: Secret Weapon hair cream from John Frieda, Secret Concealer from Laura Mercier (I know, so many secrets), Extra SPF 25 Tinted Balm from Bobbi Brown, YSL’s Volupté Sheer Candy Glossy Balm (the name has lengthened over the years, but the gorgeousness has in no way abated), Skin Food by Weleda.

How did they get to (and maintain) their Significant Other status?

As in love, there’s the slow-burn route: In the dead-middle-utter-misery of the last recession, I heard about this shampoo called Russian Amber from Philip B. It came in a tub and smelled like fantastic, exotic honey mixed with an oud-inflected perfume … and it cost $ 140. I didn’t even bother trying it — I figured the only people even remotely pleased to hear about such a thing were the mostly male-patterned-bald bankers who’d just plunged the world into economic disaster and gotten away with it; even if some of them did have hair, I was in no mood to make a single one of them happy.

But my friend with flat, unvolumizable hair started exclaiming over it, exclaiming and exclaiming and exclaiming anew. Then another friend with overcolored, slightly frizzy hair started raving, too — her daughter chimed in: “Mommy’s hair is finally smooth and pretty.” My hair is sort of normal, but I had to try it. And: It made my hair — better. A touch of volume, a touch of smoothness, some shine … However ineffable its effects, I’d be standing in the shower and I’d think, Well, do I NEED to look especially good today? If the answer was yes, I went with the Russian Amber.

This is how you know. If you have to have it on the day you need to look better than you do on all the other days (and are willing to fork over the billions it costs) it’s the One, for sure.

Desperation, then, is the ultimate test. If I must have fantastic skin on a particular morning, I put Prevage Night from Elizabeth Arden on the night before; I only use it rarely, lest the magical effect (glowier, smoother, mystically dewy-fresh skin, reportedly powered by proprietary antioxidants in the formula) fade. Not that I haven’t tried every supposed skin miracle that’s come along; it’s just the Prevage — also in Philip B price territory, at $ 136, though you go through it less quickly — is always better.

I also believe in love at first sight. The minute I applied the YSL Sheer Candy in Pomegranate — it looks like a chic French lipstick in the vein of Catherine Deneuve, but is inexplicably both transparent and intensely pigmented so it brightens anyone’s entire face, without looking like … lipstick — I knew it was a forever thing. Every so often I force myself to try something that vaguely resembles it, and it’s never as good.

And sometimes the romance is based on the irrefutable evidence that it’s just plain good for you: Even though I have breakout-prone skin, I threw some serious fuel on the face-oil fire in its early days. The Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil convinced me that oils could actually benefit the greasy-complected; I tried every oil I could find, when one day I happened upon Intelligent Nutrients (the all-organic line from Aveda-founder Horst Rechelbacher) Oil Serum. Not only did it make my skin look and feel better, I somehow developed the practice of dabbing a bit of it on over my makeup whenever I looked tired before going out, instead of adding more makeup. I liked it, but it was only when I gave some to a friend recovering from a botched Mohs surgery on her face — she’d been told there was no way she’d escape a major scar — and it utterly obliterated any sign of surgery whatsoever that I fell fully and irreparably in love. Since then, the world has embraced the face oil, but still, there is only one for me.

Once you find it — after swiping your way through the beauty aisles, experimenting furiously, staying open, and perhaps risking your rent check for it — true love is the greatest. It’s that confidence-a-bottle you’ve been searching for, that dream you thought never really existed.

So, can you live without it? It’s not the One. Keep looking.

How Relationship Experts Knew They Found ‘The One’

“When you know, you know.” That’s the conventional wisdom when it comes to figuring out if the person you’re dating is the person you’ll be with in the long, long term.

But when and how does that seemingly elusive feeling of assurance strike? We recently asked a group of married relationship experts to tell us about the moment they knew they had found The One. Below, authors, professors, therapists and other relationship professionals share their stories.

1. They never ran out of things to say.
“On our third date, we met in the late afternoon for drinks, then we saw a movie, followed by a long, leisurely dinner. Then we decided to walk. All night. First to a cafe in North Beach, then to a jazz bar, and then just up and down the San Francisco hills, until around 6 a.m. when we said goodnight at my front door. Not once did we get bored or run out of things to say. I knew then that 10, 20, 30 years out, we’d still be talking, laughing, keeping life fresh and interesting. And we are.” – Winifred Reilly, licensed marriage and family therapist and relationship blogger

2. What she lacked, he had in spades.
“I knew my husband was The One during our first real date, which was a trip to Miami since we lived in different cities at the time. He navigated us around in a rental car, which was impressive since I have no directional capacity at all. He also was very gentle when rubbing sunscreen on me, which I liked because I thought it meant he was kind and a caretaker. I was right!” – Dr. Samantha Rodman, psychologist and dating coach

3. The relationship felt totally, completely right.
“My wife and I met in high school, we broke up on graduation, but rekindled the relationship in our senior year of college. She had the opportunity to study in Europe, and I spontaneously decided to join her for a year in romantic Heidelberg. On the plane, my exhausted wife-to-be fell into a deep sleep. I looked over at her slumbering form, and I was hit by an overwhelming feeling of rightness -– that for once in my life, I was in the right place, at the right time, with the right person. In Germany, I learned the wonderful word for ‘significant other’ or ‘sweetheart’: Lebensgefährtin. It literally means a ‘fellow-traveler through life.’ And that’s what we’ve been to one another ever since.” – Dr. Karl Pillemer, author of 30 Lessons For Loving and professor of gerontology at Cornell

4. It was love at first sight — no doubt about it.
“I knew my husband was the one at first sight. I know that sounds crazy, but we were set up and had been talking on the phone for nearly a month. Each time we’d connect by telephone, we’d talk for hours. He knew so much about me before we ever met face-to-face, and before we left dinner that night, we both knew we’d never be with another person again.” – Fawn Weaver, author and founder of Happy Wives Club

5. He was a true gentleman.
“It was a cold night in November 1985 and we were double-dating at a Lebanese restaurant in Washington, D.C. He was NOT my date! I was wearing short sleeves and I must have been shivering because Chuck took off his sweater, a red and green chevron-patterned number, and gave it to me. I slipped it on and it was so soft and smelled so good, musky and manly. We looked at each other, he’s got these see-through blue eyes, and I thought, ‘Hmmm, this could be interesting…’ And it’s been interesting for 27 years.” – Iris Krasnow, author of The Secret Lives of Wives

6. She broke all the dating “rules” for him.
“Lou was bartending over the summer after my freshman year of college and his best friend, who I had dated, was the bouncer. Lou was different from any man I had dated. I can’t really explain what it was, but he complemented me in ways I hadn’t ever considered before. I knew it from the start. And because he wasn’t going to call me (bro code), I looked through the phone book and called everyone with his name until I found him. I don’t believe in rules when it comes to love, but if I did, I was sure willing to break any and all of them.” – Dr. Logan Levkoff, sexologist and author

7. Their chemistry was off the charts.
“I knew my husband was The One on date number four. The electricity wouldn’t stop. I swear, I got electric butterflies every time I would think of him. The PDA was getting a little ridiculous that night and I told him, ‘You’re the man of my dreams.’ He said, ‘Wow, that’s a lot to live up to.’ I was actually trying to NOT be in a relationship for a long time, but there was no denying this intense chemistry.” – Marina Sbrochi, author of Stop Looking for a Husband: Find the Love of Your Life

8. His success was hers too.
“When I whispered to her, ‘They let me in [to a psychotherapy graduate program]’ her face radiated joy. More than I did at the time, she understood what this could mean to me and to us. Up until that moment, the future of my career was vague. She knew that this possibility of me becoming a psychotherapist had my name written all over it. Her assurance made her the one for me.” – Dr. Jim Walkup, licensed marriage and family therapist

You can whip up one of these at home by shaking two ounces of London dry gin with four ounces of coconut water, the juice of one lime, three dashes of Angostura bitters and some ice. Or, if you’re out at a less-sophisticated establishment, Hemingway also loved whiskey sodas.

Drink like a college student: “Text or Shot”

Everyone puts their phones in a pile. First player draws one at random and composes any message they want to anyone in the list of contacts. The owner of that phone then has to either send the text, or take a shot. Remember when drinking games involved cards? What a time to be alive. (Shoutout to Reddit user spaceonfire for this one.)

Pickup line: “Do you like this shirt?”

“It’s made of boyfriend material.” Don’t expect it to work. Alternatively, you can go up to someone and say, “Hi, I’m [your name]. How’s your night going?” If neither of these work, execute this dance move.

Something to think about: This Colorado teacher is giving her kidney to a student.

High school gym teacher Jen Sculley plans to donate her left kidney to a teenage student suffering from kidney disease. When she heard about the student’s plight and found out she was a match, Sculley said the decision was easy. Have you done something nice this week? There’s still time!

Sobering fact: Years of heavy drinking have a less negative effect on women, compared to men.

Researchers analyzing data from one of the largest studies on the long-term effects of alcohol found that two shots’ worth of alcohol consumed by a man every day for ten years is linked to significant cognitive decline. Not a shocker. But women consuming a corresponding amount of alcohol per day — they drank less due to female metabolism rates — were not as affected. It’s not clear why, but researchers suggested it could be due to estrogen.

Random piece of knowledge: A group of cats is called a “clowder.”

A male cat is a “tom” and a female is a “molly.” Cats also can’t taste sweets because they’re all essentially blood-thirsty killers.

Cheers! Have a great weekend!
