Behind the Scenes at Sundance: a Star-Filled Women’s Rally, Fun Sightings and More

Another year, another fun-filled 10 days are happening at the Sundance Film Festival in snowy Park City, Utah —  and PEOPLE is there to capture all the behind-the-scenes action.

Celebrities like Dakota Fanning, Jane Fonda, Nicholas Cage and more are braving the frigid weather and flocking to the small town this weekend to interact with their biggest fans and hit up some of the festival’s hottest parties.

Thursday, Jan. 18

2:35 p.m.: Blythe Danner arrives in Salt Lake City, Utah, where she is greeted by a swarm of photographers and fans asking for autographs. “Why do I deserve all this attention?” she asks.

11:35 p.m.: Actors Jason Mantzoukas and Nick Offerman ham it up at the Hearts Beat Loud afterparty at the Grey Goose Blue Door on Main.

Friday, Jan. 19

11:13 a.m.: Evan Peters stops by the IndieWire Space to play some Space Invaders in the Pizza Hut Lounge. The 31-year-old actor is in Park City with partner Emma Roberts promoting his film American Animals.

11:35 a.m.: Ted Danson and Danner walk among fans on Main. “We love you, Ted!” an onlooker yells.

12:05 p.m.: Nicholas Cage stops by the Entertainment Studios Suite on Main to discuss his film Mandy. “I don’t think I’ve had a movie premiere here in 40 years, so I’m very excited,” the 54-year-old actor tells PEOPLE.

And when it comes to the #MeToo movement, Cage says he takes “every opportunity I get to work with a female director.” He added, “One of the best movies I ever made was Valley Girl and I just did a picture called Inconceivable with Maria Pulera and there was a strong female cast. I realize that the talent and creativity needs to be heard and supported and cherished.”

2:30 p.m.: Arrested Development alum Alia Shawkat, who’s in town to promote her new film Blaze, flies in from Los Angeles wearing a bright orange hoodie and sporting her short, curly locks. Emmy-winning Master of None star Lena Waithe is also on the flight, wearing a Chance the Rapper number “3” baseball cap.

The two are spotted chatting and laughing together at the Los Angeles International Airport before boarding. Both actresses stop to sign autographs and chat with a throng of fans who anxiously wait by the baggage claim area, which is cordoned off by velvet rope for the special weekend.

2:35: After the duo depart, the crowd begins to stir excitedly as East Bound & Down star Danny McBride arrives from another flight. He stops to sign autographs before being whisked away to his car.

3:15 p.m.: Offerman takes a second to warm up in the IndieWire Space and grabs a hot slice of pepperoni pizza from the Pizza Hut Lounge.

5:00 p.m.: Director Gus Van Sant, Jack Black, Jonah Hill and Joaquin Pheonix promote their film Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot at The Grey Goose Blue Door on Main.

8:30 p.m.: Luke Evans serenades Dakota Fanning at an exclusive screening of his new TNT show The Alienist sponsored by the network and Vulture. Playfully goaded by the curator and the audience — which includes Fanning’s sister Elle, 19 — a visibly embarrassed Evans, 38, begrudgingly serenades the room with an a capella rendition of George Gershwin’s “Summertime.” Evans, who proved his vocal abilities in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast as Gaston, sounds pitch perfect. At one point during the song, an audience member shouts, “You’re so sexy!”

10:10 p.m.: Ethan Hawke and Rose Byrne mingle amongst fans at the Juliet, Naked afterparty at the Grey Goose Blue Door on Main. Hawke, sporting a thick winter goatee, is in town to promote his latest directorial effort, Blaze. Also in attendance is It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star Glenn Howerton, who holds court with friends by the fireplace. He is currently starring in the new NBC comedy A.P. Bio. 

Party-goers are greeted at the door with cozy hot toddies and Grey Goose Main Street cocktails, a fresh and vibrant twist on the classic spritz is a mix of pineapple juice, club soda, St-German elderflower liqueur, and Grey Goose vodka — bundled up with a cinnamon stick as garnish.

12:10 a.m.: Audrina Partridge arrives at TAO Park City for a girls night out with friends. The small group walks over to their private table to sip on Don Julio 1942 cocktails while dancing to tunes by DJs Mel DeBarge and Vice.When Camilla Cabello’s “Havana” comes on, Partridge throws up hers arms in excitement and starts singing along and dancing with friends.

12:35 a.m.: will.i.am and fellow Black Eyed Peas members apl.de.ap and Taboo arrive at TAO Park City and are greeted with Tequila Don Julio bottle service at their private table next to the DJ booth.

1:30 a.m.: Idris Alba munches on a hot slice of Pizza Hut pizza while DJ’ing at the WME late night party.

Saturday, Jan. 20

10:00 a.m.: Despite the freezing temperatures and falling snow, hundreds gather for the Respect Rally, a Park City event organized to support “all ethnicities, religions, genders, political and sexual organizations” that falls on the anniversary of last year’s Women’s March.

Jane Fonda, Tessa Thompson, attorney Gloria Allred, Lena Waithe, Nick Offerman, Maria Bello, Common and other celebrities brave the weather to rally the crowd with impassioned speeches. “When we are equal, we are not abused,”  Fonda, the keynote speaker, says. “This kind of change doesn’t just come about through protest. It comes through organizing.”

2:30 p.m.: Jake Gyllenhaal arrives in style with Acura at the Eccles Theater on Main. The 37-year-old actor, who is promoting his film Wildfire, is greeted by screaming girls as soon as he stepped out. He braves the cold and stops to take selfies with fans outside of the theater.

10 of the Most Festive Holiday Scenes in Non-Holiday Movies

Want to work a little holiday cheer into your binge-watching rotation without going full-blown festive? We’ve got you covered. The following 10 scenes don’t come courtesy of your traditional holiday movies. Rather, they represent merely a snapshot of yuletide festivity in decidedly non-Christmas features.

You’ve Got Mail

Warning: This one will bring on some serious feels. Watching Kathleen Kelly celebrate her last Christmas in her mother’s bookstore is pretty heart-breaking. Luckily, we are comforted by the knowledge that come spring, she’ll be in Tom Hanks’ arms.

Mean Girls

Thanks to Tina Fey (and the Plastics), “Jingle Bell Rock” was never the same.

Sex and the City

We’ve all been in Miranda’s (metaphorical) shoes: Celebrating New Year’s Eve while being single AF. Let us never forget that for every single Miranda there is an equally unattached Carrie, willing to lend a hug and some much-needed love.

Catch Me If You Can

Quite possibly the saddest of all Christmas scenes is Leonardo DiCaprio’s Frank Abagnale, Jr. calling Tom Hanks’ Carl Hanratty — because the FBI agent is the only person he can call during the holidays.

When Harry Met Sally

Finally, a happy ending. This memorable moment leaves us wistful that one New Year’s Eve, our best friend might just become a little bit more.

Toy Story

The toys are in full surveillance mode for the biggest day of their year: Christmas.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

Is there any place more magical than Hogwarts during Christmas? No. No, there is not.

Serendipity

So this one flirts with being a Christmas movie, but counts because how could this meet-cute be overlooked?

How to Be Single

Is hooking up at a holiday party cliché? Totes. But is the annual fête still a sweet way to meet your future boyfriend? Definitely.

American Psycho

This might be your typical office holiday party, but we really hope this isn’t your typical office holiday party guest.

Maison Margiela to Give Rare Glimpse Behind the Scenes

NOW YOU SEE IT: Maison Margiela is ready to lift the veil a little further on its creative process.
The Paris-based house, famed for its anonymous approach to design, will launch a new Instagram Stories series with the hashtag #MaisonMargielaInsideOut during the finale of creative director John Galliano’s women’s wear show, scheduled to take place at 11 a.m. on Wednesday.
The first in the series is a one-minute clip, directed by London-based filmmaker Sean Frank, that is being shot in the Margiela design studios in the 24 hours leading up to the ready-to-wear display. It will also be posted on the brand’s web site www.maisonmargiela.com.
In addition to revealing the inspiration and background of the collection, “Inside Out” will highlight Margiela’s new handbag, debuting on the runway. Further instalments will follow, all linked to the rtw activities of the house.
The concept comes on the heels of the Maison Margiela Artisanal couture show in July, which featured a decor showcasing the offbeat items with which Galliano surrounds himself while he works, as well as hair-and-makeup stations. The idea was to provide guests with an inside look at what goes on at the Maison.

Mom’s Viral ‘Behind The Scenes’ Photo Reveals The Reality Of Instagram Perfection

After posting a “perfect” selfie, a U.K.-based mom and blogger followed up with a powerful message about body image. 

On May 16, Tova Leigh posted a photo of herself on Instagram, along with a caption about corsets and unrealistic body image standards. 

A post shared by Tova Leigh (@tova_leigh) on

After receiving tons of “likes” and compliments from friends, Leigh made the selfie her profile picture on Facebook.  

But she later felt guilt about her choice of photo and the filters and edits she used to create it. On May 28, the mom shared a follow-up post to reveal the reality behind the “perfect” selfie. 

“Today I am sharing the ‘behind the scenes’ of that image,” Leigh wrote. “How I actually looked when it was taken, without 20 attempts to get it right, without cropping out the bits I don’t like and without adding the ‘make me look pretty’ filter.”

The mom explained that over the weekend, she read an article about the way social media can make people feel depressed and insecure because they perceive the perfect-looking images to be real.  

“Well let me tell you something: THIS IS REAL,” she wrote. “In all my mum-tum, cellulitis, granny pants and absolutely zero thigh gap glory! Not the perfect sexy body by some dictated standard, but imperfectly fabulous because it is real and it is mine.”

Leigh concluded with some advice for people to keep in mind the next time they see a “perfect” photo on Instagram or Facebook and start to feel self-conscious: “Social media is full of shit. You are beautiful just the way you are. And there is nothing sexier than being real.”

The post received over 37,000 likes. Leigh has three daughters ― a 6-year-old and 4-year-old twins. She told HuffPost they inspired her to share this message. 

“They’re obviously still not on social media, and I sometimes worry about when they will be,” she explained. “As somebody who uses social media quite a bit for my work, I am well aware of how misleading it can be, and at the age of 41 I take things with a pinch of salt as I know that what I see is not always reality. “

Reading about the negative effects of social media “perfection” ― particularly on teenagers ― prompted Leigh to share the truth of her own “perfect” selfie. 

“In reality, I was standing in my underwear in my bathroom facing a window, so I had really good light,” she recalled. “I had a mirror in front of me and I must’ve tried at least 20 times before I got the perfect shot.”

But the image was “dishonest,” and Leigh said she felt like a fraud after receiving compliments on how she looked in photo. “It did not represent what that moment really looks like, so I decided to share the truth.”

Though the blogger was hesitant to share such an intimate photo, she’s glad she did. Leigh has been overwhelmed by the positive reactions and all the kind messages she’s received from women around the world thanking her for her honesty.

“We live in a world and a society that puts a lot of pressure on women, young girls teenagers etc to look a certain way,” she told HuffPost. “We tend to share the good moments and the attractive bits about our lives which I guess is understandable, but at the same time is very misleading.”

She added, “If you look at social media you will see that 99 percent of images look perfect. But how does that even make sense? Life is not perfect. We are not perfect. And that was the point I was trying to get across: We’re not perfect but that is totally OK. Being real is far more powerful than being perfect.”

Jason Derulo, Antonio Brown Go Behind the Scenes at LVL XIII Fall Campaign

Jason Derulo walks the talk. Even though the singer is not doing one of his trademark backflips or dance routines at the moment, he’s ever mindful of keeping up his powerful physique, and his growing profile as a fashion trendsetter. He settles into a director’s chair to eat poached salmon and asparagus (which he has ordered for his small posse as well) at the glam station before the fall shoot for his and Antonio Brown’s LVL XIII label commences in Los Angeles.
“It’s crazy,” he said, of how the label he is growing with Atlanta-based designer Brown (he, his manager and Brown are all equity partners in the business) has grown from a sneaker line into a full-fledged fashion collection that will enter Bloomingdale’s this fall. “Everything just happened naturally. We didn’t force it or weren’t aiming toward anything at first. But we definitely had a vision for doing both shoes and clothing.”

Jason Derulo wears LVL XIII’s colorblock T-shirt and dress pant.

Bryce Dallas Howard’s High-Heel Workout From Behind the Scenes at Jurassic World

Much ado has been made about Bryce Dallas Howard‘s high heels from Jurassic World—specifically, the fact that she wears a pair the entire time, running from dinosaurs and all. Costar Chris Pratt parodied her running, and Howard savvily answered questions about it at the film’s premiere, telling reporters “it’s way better than running barefoot in a jungle, I’ll tell you that.”

bryce-dallas-howard-costume-jurassic-world-movie

Howard was the one who green-lit the Sam Edelman heels after hurting her ankle while shooting a take in platform wedge sneakers that the crew had spray-painted to look like nude heels (which must have been an intriguing look too). After the heel decision had been made, Howard told People she “fixated on having the strongest ankles imaginable” and made a wooden platform contraption specifically for working out her feet.

“I’d put my foot on it and do calf raises and then stay on my tippy-toe and do squats. Then I’d turn perpendicular and exercise each side of my foot. Just to practice the stabilizing muscles.”

Exercise kinda like you’re prepping to run from dinos with this squat and calf-raise combo:

Queen Latifah Opens Up About Those Lesbian Love Scenes In ‘Bessie’

On-screen love scenes, gay or straight, should not be a matter of controversy, according to Queen Latifah.

Latifah spoke with BET about a same-sex kiss in the upcoming HBO biopic, “Bessie,” in which she stars as legendary blues singer, Bessie Smith, who was bisexual.

“You know, people feel a type of way when they see any sexuality on-screen, to me, and I think it’s almost human nature,” she said. “People are so fascinated by it. There shouldn’t even be a discussion, but it is because people are still curious and people still wonder how they feel about things. At the end of the day, I don’t really care if someone feels uncomfortable about it. It is what it is, and it’s life. So you either deal with it or not, you know? That’s your choice. It’s just part of who she is. I had to tell the story honestly.”

Latifah, who bares it all in “Bessie,” added that she hopes viewers don’t focus only on Smith’s romantic interests.

“I hope that it doesn’t become the sole issue because it’s really not just, you know, one thing about Bessie. There’s so many parts of who she was. [Her sexuality] was just part of it,” Latifah said.

In the April/May 2015 issue of Uptown magazine, the actress, who has faced rumors over her own sexuality, said she thinks that “people’s ideas in general are antiquated when it comes to who you love” and that society has not progressed quickly enough.

Billy Crystal: Gay Scenes On TV Sometimes ‘Too Much For Me’

Billy Crystal was one of the first actors to play a gay character on television, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t wary of some of the gay content that ends up on the small screen.

The beloved comedian opened up about his feelings regarding the nature of gay scenes on television while speaking at a panel for the Television Critics Association on Sunday in Pasadena, California, the Independent reports.

“Sometimes I think, ‘Ah that’s too much for me,'” Crystal said. “Sometimes, it’s just pushing it a little too far for my taste and I’m not going to reveal to you which ones they are.”

As Deadline reports, Crystal also spoke about his groundbreaking gay character, Jodie Dallas, which he played on ABC’s “Soap” from 1977 to 1981.

Crystal spoke about the role on Sunday, ET Canada reports:

There were times where I would say to [the actor who played his boyfriend], ‘Bob, “I love you,’ and the audience would laugh nervously, because, you know, it’s a long time ago, that I’d feel this anger. I wanted to stop the tape and go, ‘What is your problem?’ Because it made you sort of very self-conscious about what we were trying to do then. And now it’s just, I see it and I just hope people don’t abuse it and shove it in our face — well, that sounds terrible — to the point of it just feels like an everyday kind of thing.

Crystal is currently promoting his upcoming new FX series “The Comedians,” which is his first television series since “Soap.”

In recent years, more and more queer content is making its way onto the airwaves. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender characters and storylines can be seen in popular shows like “Looking,” “Modern Family,” “Empire,” “Transparent,” “Orange is the New Black,” “American Horror Story” and “Glee.”

Earlier this month, comedian Kevin Hart also sounded off on gay roles in Hollywood. “I can’t [play a gay character] because I don’t think I’m really going to dive into that role 100 percent, because of the insecurities about myself trying to play that part,” he told hosts of the Breakfast Club on New York’s Power 105.1. “What I think people are going to think while I’m trying to do this is going to stop me from playing that part the way I’m supposed to.”

During the 1940s and 1950s, downtown Tampa was a shining model of the American landscape. On every street corner, customers packed their shopping bags with the best to offer from dress shops, hat shops, shoe stores, and of course those beloved department stores of a bygone era, including Kress, Woolworth''s, and Grant''s. Locally owned stores and shops fueled by the entrepreneurial spirit of Tampa families also dotted the streets of downtown and flourished during Tampa''s postwar population expansion, offering an endless bounty of possibilities for success. These historic storefront photographs, compiled from private collections and local library archives, present a walking tour of downtown Tampa and other popular neighborhoods during a simpler time that is so well-loved and remembered.

Making Scenes

Making Scenes


In 1996, Emma Baulch went to live in Bali to do research on youth culture. Her chats with young people led her to an enormously popular regular outdoor show dominated by local reggae, punk, and death metal bands. In this rich ethnography, she takes readers inside each scene: hanging out in the death metal scene among unemployed university graduates clad in black T-shirts and ragged jeans; in the punk scene among young men sporting mohawks, leather jackets, and hefty jackboots; and among the remnants of the local reggae scene in Kuta Beach, the island’s most renowned tourist area. Baulch tracks how each music scene arrived and grew in Bali, looking at such influences as the global extreme metal underground, MTV Asia, and the internationalization of Indonesia’s music industry.Making Scenes is an exploration of the subtle politics of identity that took place within and among these scenes throughout the course of the 1990s. Participants in the different scenes often explained their interest in death metal, punk, or reggae in relation to broader ideas about what it meant to be Balinese, which reflected views about Bali’s tourism industry and the cultural dominance of Jakarta, Indonesia’s capital and largest city. Through dance, dress, claims to public spaces, and onstage performances, participants and enthusiasts reworked “Balinese-ness” by synthesizing global media, ideas of national belonging, and local identity politics. Making Scenes chronicles the creation of subcultures at a historical moment when media globalization and the gradual demise of the authoritarian Suharto regime coincided with revitalized, essentialist formulations of the Balinese self.

8 TV Scenes You Didn’t Know Were Improvised

Over on Reddit, humble users “TRULY_MAGNFICENT” and “MakeMeASteak” have been rounding up famous movie scenes that were “unscripted.” There’s Full Metal Jacket, The Shinning, and Good Will Hunting, among others, as well as hundreds of suggestions for other films from equally modest commenters. It’s a pretty decent read, so I thought I might be interesting to round up TV scenes that were either entirely or partially improvised.
