9 films we watched when we were too young – and then wished we hadn’t

9 films we watched when we were too young – and then wished we hadn’t

1. Deep Blue Sea

The premise is ridiculous, the acting questionable and – with adult eyes – the special effects leave a lot to be desired. But Deep Blue Sea has left me with a great big, bloody shark bite-shaped scar. Ten-year-old me unwisely watched this certificate 15 film on VHS during a sleep over. It follows a group of scientists on an isolated research facility who are hunted by their own insanely intelligent lab sharks.
Naturally I didn’t let out a single squeak during the movie and never mentioned the lasting, terrifying impact it had had on my young and impressionable brain to my friends. But boy did me (and my extended family) live to regret that rental choice. Read More

On The Paparazzi: “The paparazzi haven’t been too much of a problem. You expect them at premieres and things. That’s your job. Let’s face it. But the other day my husband and I were having lunch at an outside cafe in New York.

On The Paparazzi: “The paparazzi haven’t been too much of a problem. You expect them at premieres and things. That’s your job. Let’s face it. But the other day my husband and I were having lunch at an outside cafe in New York. I told him ‘That guy over there is photographing us.’ He said “Oh, you think everyone is photographing you.’ Yeah sure. The photograph came out the next day, and I didn’t look so hot.” (Herald-Journal – Apr 8, 1997) Read More

As conversation continues to swirl around Leonardo DiCaprio’s under-appreciated thespianism, Bette Midler has issued a pointed reminder about the Academy Awards’ continual failure to recognize black actors of equal mettle.

“The Oscars are today!” the multi-hyphenate performer tweeted Sunday. “You know, the awards show where Leonardo DiCaprio is ‘overdue’ but black people can ‘wait till next year.’” Read More

Say It Ain’t So!: Check Out 11 Great Actors Who Surprisingly Haven’t Won Oscars

Leonardo DiCaprio

For many actors and actresses, winning the coveted Academy Award is a major Hollywood milestone.

But for these 11 stars — including Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Cruise, Amy Adams, Bette Midler and more! — winning an Oscar is unfortunately a career checkmark they’re still working on, despite having been nominated several times!

John Dunn Recreates The 70’s Look For New HBO Series, ‘Vinyl’

Vogue Meet The Man Who Is Reliving The Looks of The ’70s For HBO’s Vinyl

The day before interviewing John Dunn, the costume designer who has brilliantly recreated the 1970s in all their delirious and degenerate glory for HBO’s Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger–produced music industry drama Vinyl, which debuted last night, I was going down the escalator at the Vogue offices while randomly David Johannson, one of the legendary New York Dolls, was coming up. Given that it feels like the ’70s never seem to have left us though, that sighting shouldn’t have been so surprising. Read More
