You’ll Be Seeing A Lot Of These ‘Time’s Up’ Pins At The Golden Globes

Published

on

There’s one accessory nearly everyone will be wearing this Sunday night at the Golden Globes.

Nominees and presenters will be among those wearing a small black and white pin that reads “Time’s Up” as part of the recent initiative to fight sexual harassment and inequality. According to The Hollywood Reporter, actress and co-founder of the Time’s Up initiative Reese Witherspoon tapped costume designer and stylist Arianne Phillips to create the pin for the awards show.

Phillips told The Hollywood Reporter that the idea for the pins happened at an initial brainstorm meeting about the Time’s Up initiative in December with actresses, producers and others in the industry.

“Reese asked me to come to the actors’ group, and told me they were going to be wearing black and would I consider creating a pin for the nominees and male presenters,” Phillips told The Hollywood Reporter. “We were up against the holidays, but I said I could do it.”

Phillips, along with other Hollywood stylists including Los Angeles jewelry designer Michael Schmidt, designed the Time’s Up logo and created 500 pins in just two weeks.

“I met so many great women, and it was such an honor to be called to action,” Phillips added.

The Time’s Up initiative was announced on New Year’s Day and consists of more than 300 women in television, film and theater. The project, inspired by the recent #MeToo movement, hopes to combat sexual misconduct in all workplaces by creating a legal defense fund to help less-privileged women come forward with their stories.

Witherspoon will walk the red carpet on Sunday with fellow Time’s Up actress Eva Longoria in support of the movement, E! News reported Thursday.

Kerry Washington, Shonda Rhimes, America Ferrera and Ashley Judd are among the other big stars involved in the powerful initiative. In a Jan. 1 New York Times article about the new initiative, Witherspoon explained why Time’s Up is so important.

“We have been siloed off from each other,” Witherspoon said. “We’re finally hearing each other, and seeing each other, and now locking arms in solidarity with each other, and in solidarity for every woman who doesn’t feel seen, to be finally heard.”

Ariana Grande’s ‘thank u, next’ video is a perfect parody of all your favorite teen movies

Ariana Grande’s “thank u, next” already cemented itself as a 2018 banger, and the official video is a party of its own. Full of classic teen movie tropes and references to Mean Girls, Bring It On, Legally Blonde, and more.

The movie references are fun on their own, all teased by Grande on social media leading up to the video’s release, but the cameos make “thank u, next.”

From Mean Girls‘ original Aaron Samuels (Jonathan Bennett) to Kris Jenner as a cool mom, everyone in the video is having a blast – perhaps none more so than Jennifer Coolidge recreating an entire scene of Legally Blonde with Grande as Elle Woods.

The song talks about Grande’s exes, but the second part is all about self-discovery (“But this one gon’ last / ‘Cause her name is Ari). The movie references are strategic – though they all contain central love stories, they remain iconic because they are stories of female empowerment and a protagonist finding her voice amid all the noise.

And that shit’s amazing.”

Michael B. Jordan demonstrates just how fast his hands are

“Having starred in two Creed movies and probably endured some pretty rigorous physical training, Michael B. Jordan is pretty quick on his feet — and fast with his hands.

On The Late Late Show, Jordan demonstrated to host James Corden just how quick he can actually move them.

In a game of good old try-to-slap-my-hand-before-I-move-it-away, Jordan beat a shrieking James Corden pretty convincingly.

Oh, Michael. Your hands are faster than the speed of our love for you.”

Idris Elba is People’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ for 2018

(CNN)He’s still not James Bond, but for now this honor will do.

He is the 33rd man to hold the title and appears this week on the magazine’s cover.
Elba told the publication, “I was like, ‘Come on, no way. Really?’ ” when he first learned he had been selected.
“Looked in the mirror, I checked myself out. I was like, ‘Yeah, you are kind of sexy today,’ ” the “Thor” star joked. “But to be honest, it was just a nice feeling. It was a nice surprise — an ego boost for sure.”
“Elba first became famous in the States for his portrayal of drug kingpin Russell “Stringer” Bell on HBO’s hit series “The Wire” (HBO is owned by CNN’s parent company) and since then has branched out to the big screen.
His early days were far from sexy, Elba said, growing up “tall and skinny” at an all-boys school in London, where he played football, basketball, cricket, hockey and rugby.
Now considered one of Hollywood’s sex symbols, Elba said he definitely had an awkward stage as a youth.
“And my name was Idrissa Akuna Elba, OK?,” he said. “I got picked on a little bit. But as soon as I could grow a mustache, I was the coolest kid on the block. Grew a mustache, had some muscles, bonkers.”
Bonkers indeed.”
