Hollywood was once all about tradecraft. But not any more, as Mark Wahlbergs ridiculously brilliant daily schedule makes all too clear
“When the famously dissolute movie star John Barrymore died, having spent much of the last year of his life passed out at Errol Flynns house, the brilliant character actor Peter Lorre bribed the funeral homes director to loan him the corpse for a night. Lorre, Humphrey Bogart and a couple of others sneaked into Flynns Mulholland Drive home while he was shooting late, arranged the body in a chair near the bar, then hid and waited. When Flynn returned home from set, he nodded at Barrymore, and continued to walk over to fix himself a drink. After a few steps, Flynn froze. He went back to the chair, touched Barrymores ice-cold body, then shouted: All right, you bastards, come on out!
I know what youre thinking. This is all very well; but did any of these ill-disciplined men make Daddys Home 2, Mark Wahlbergs highly called-for sequel to his turn in Daddys Home? Alas not. At the time of this late-night incident, Bogart was shooting a picture called Casablanca, and though well probably never know his workout schedule for the movie, I guess we can say for sure that he could bench-press at least a quarter of John Barrymore. But only after tipping-out time at the Cocoanut Grove.
And so to the much-remarked-upon daily routine of Wahlberg, which is here reproduced in full:
2.30am wake up
2.45am prayer time
5:30am post-workout meal
9:30am cryo chamber recovery
11:00am family time/meetings/work calls
2:00pm meetings/work calls
3:00pm pick up kids @ school
4:00pm workout #2
5:30pm dinner/family time
Hey, dont knock it. Its called acting.
Or is it? Is that what this life is? For many, Marks schedule is the equivalent of letting daylight in on tragic. Once the inspiration for Entourage indeed, that comfortingly silly………………………..”
Taraji P Henson: ‘Hollywood didn’t grasp my talent’
Harvey Weinstein obstructed her rise now, with her new film What Men Want, she is calling the shots. But what does she make of her Empire co-star Jussie Smolletts hate-crime controversy?
“On a December morning in Los Angeles, the sun blazes down on a large and abundantly decorated Christmas tree in the parking lot at Paramount Pictures. It is upstaged, though, by the actor Taraji P Henson, who swans past wearing an ensemble that calls to mind the futuristic fashion of the 1970s: steampunk sunglasses, a black tracksuit under a puffy gilet and chunky grey, orange and lime sci-fi pumps, possibly with rocket boosters in the soles. Her hair is arranged in tight braids, some piled on her head, others swishing around her shoulders.
As we take our seats in a brightly lit office upstairs, she removes from her flowery backpack a tub of beige mush. What is that, mashed banana? Nuh-uh, she says between mouthfuls. Its an oatmeal alkaline thing. Its got quinoa in it. I gotta be careful because I dont digest a heavy grain. She takes a sniff and laughs. It smells like dirt, it really does. She went vegan last year after a doctor told her it could reduce the chances of getting stomach cancer. You can do it if you have a good chef, she says encouragingly. I make a mental note to have a chat with mine……………………………………………………………………….”
Netflix vs. Steven Spielberg is a battle over the future of the movie experience
“New York (CNN Business)Netflix wants to change how you watch movies. Steven Spielberg wants to preserve the theatrical experience. Those two points of view are clashing, with Netflix pushing back against a plan that Spielberg reportedly has to create rules that could block the streaming giant from future Oscars contention.
Luke Perry: forever the thrillingly cool teen pinup
Perry never quite escaped the shadow of Beverly Hills, 90210. But this was not a failing it was proof of how seminal the show, and Perrys handsome rebel Dylan McKay, was to a generation
“Teen pinups who free themselves of their TV origins can be counted on one hand with fingers to spare: Ron Howard. Michael J Fox. Zac Efron.
Luke Perry never quite made it to those ranks, but thats no discredit to him. Despite working pretty regularly until the day he died which is more than a lot of teen stars can say he always knew his obituaries would read Dylan McKay has died, referring to the bad(ish) boy he played in the original series of Beverly Hills, 90210 from 1990-1995, and then again in 1998-2000 when he gamely, if through somewhat gritted teeth, revived the character. And so it has proved to be the case.
