Calling her the ambassador of empathy, The Post director endorses Winfrey and says America needs a mindful, empathetic human being in the White House
The undeclared but burgeoning campaign to elect Oprah Winfrey the next president of the United States has received another boost, with the full-throated backing of one of Hollywoods biggest figures: Steven Spielberg.
I think Oprah Winfrey would make an absolutely brilliant president, the Oscar-winning director told the Guardian on Thursday. Spielberg, in London to promote his new movie The Post, said: If she declares, I will back her.
Speculation about a Winfrey presidential run in 2020 took off following Sundays Golden Globes awards ceremony, where the TV host and impresario delivered a barnstorming and intensely political speech. Afterwards her partner, Stedman Graham, told the Los Angeles Times: Its up to the people. She would absolutely do it.
Amy Schumer Marries Boyfriend Chris Fischer After A Few Months Of Dating
Amy Schumer married chef Chris Fischer in a secret ceremony on Tuesday after just a few months of dating, People and Us Weekly reported.
The two were married at a house in Malibu, California, in front of 80 friends, including stars Larry David, Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Lawrence, David Spade and Jake Gyllenhaal, according to the reports.
Schumer, 36, and her chef boyfriend made their relationship public (as in Instagram-official) this week after attending Ellen DeGeneres’ star-studded birthday party. The two reportedly started dating around November after they were spotted having an intimate dinner in New York City.
They later attended a taping of “Saturday Night Live” together, though Schumer’s rep wouldn’t comment on the relationship.
Fisher once worked at Mario Batali’s New York City restaurant, Babbo, after being introduced by his friend, Jake Gyllenhaal.
The chef later returned to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, where he grew up, to work at the Beach Plum Inn (a favorite of the Obamas) and The Covington Restaurant.
Fisher who penned the James Beard Award-winning cookbook, Beetlebung Farm Cookbook recently opened Beetlebung Farm Market on Martha’s Vineyard, and plans to turn part of it into a restaurant.
“After years of working for other people, my intuition is, ‘I’m doing this on my own terms,’” Fisher told Boston magazine in July. “You can create a destination restaurant anywhere.”
Prior to meeting Fischer, Schumer dated furniture designer Ben Hanisch. The two met on a dating app in 2015 and were together for a little over a year.
“I feel like Ben is the first guy who’s really been my boyfriend,” the “I Feel Pretty” actress and author told Marie Claire in July 2016. “There are guys who, if they heard me say that, would want to punch me in the face, but yeah, it’s the truth.”
A rep for Schumer confirmed that she and Hanisch split in 2017, but said the two remained friends. It certainly seems like things are amicable, as the comedian thanked her ex for some furniture he’d built for her in September.
Idris Elba Proposes To Girlfriend Sabrina Dhowre In Front Of Cheering Crowd
Idris Elba appears to be off the market.
Video shows the “Luther” star getting down on one knee and proposed to girlfriend Sabrina Dhowre during a screening of “Yardie” — the first film Elba has directed — in Dalston, London.
Neither Elba nor Dhowre have publicly confirmed the engagement, and reps for Elba didn’t immediately reply to a request for comment. But screening attendee David Marsden-Sainou posted a clip of the sweet moment on Twitter Saturday.
Rio Cinema, where the screening took place, also posted about the proposal.
“Still 5 days to Valentines Day but @idriselba went down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend live on stage this morning,” read a tweet from the theater.
The British actor met Dhowre in Canada while he was filming 2017′s “The Mountain Between Us.”
“Falling in love while making a movie about falling in love is pretty special,” he told People editor-in-chief Jess Cagle in September.
Congrats to Elba and Dhowre, and condolences to many of the rest of you out there.
Kim Cattrall Accuses Sarah Jessica Parker Of Exploiting Brother’s Death
“I don’t need your love or support at this tragic time @sarahjessicaparker,” reads a scathing Saturday Instagram post from Cattrall.
Parker earlier in the week commented on Cattrall’s Sunday announcement that her brother, 55-year-old Chris Cattrall, had been found dead in Canada.
“Dearest Kim, my love and condolences to you and yours and Godspeed to your beloved brother. Xx,” Parker wrote.
But Cattrall made it clear she had no time for any kind words from her former “Sex and the City” costar.
“Your continuous reaching out is a painful reminder of how cruel you really were then and now,” Cattrall wrote. “Let me make this VERY clear. (If I haven’t already) You are not my family. You are not my friend. So I’m writing to tell you one last time to stop exploiting our tragedy in order to restore your ‘nice girl’ persona.”
Cattrall linked to an October article in the New York Post, headlined “Inside the mean-girls culture that destroyed ’Sex and the City.” The article came out after Cattrall, who played Samantha on the “Sex and the City” TV series and in the first two movies, declared she had no interest in reprising her role for a third film.
Representatives for Parker didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on Cattrall’s Instagram post. But Parker has said previously that she found Cattrall’s comments “upsetting.”
“That’s not the way I recall our experience,” she told Andy Cohen earlier this month.
