Actress Elizabeth Olsen celebrated her 31st Birthday on February 16. Originally best known as the baby sister of the famous Olsen twins, Mary-Kate and Ashley, Elizabeth eventually stepped out of her sisters' shadow to become an accomplished actress in her own right. She is now best known for her role as the MCU's Wanda Maximoff, aka the Scarlet Witch, a role she will reprise later this year in the Disney + series WandaVision.
Sun kissed tanned skin, beach blond hair and a big smile on her face - that the way the public new Caroline Flack. Over the last years, she presented some of the biggest TV shows in Britain. She made us laugh, she made us cry, and we loved her for being the way she was. Caroline Flack didn't pretend to be perfect and spoke openly about her mental health issues. We, as members of the ordinary public, realised that more money in your bank account does not mean you are happier. It was easy to identify with her personality, and we could relate to her problems. Caroline felt real, not fake.
He's been there, he's done that. But Jason Bateman's body of work stretches far and wide, and it's only improving. Whether you know him from Little House on the Prairie and Silver Spoons, or Arrested Development and Horrible Bosses, or from his more recent and dramatic work. Chances are, you've seen him in a series or movie. His deadpan humor and insanely well attained "poker face" make him one of my favorite actors. His latest endeavor as one of the directors and starring as Terry Maitland in the new HBO crime/drama/thriller series The Outsider, made me want to re-examine my appreciation for this beloved actor and creator.
If it were Medieval times, one could hear a crowd yelling “off with her whole head” as the African American community, supporters of Kobe Bryant’s legacy took Gayle King to the stake, after her video surfaced interviewing Lisa Leslie. Kings interview caused a frenzy via Social Media.
Kim Novak is one of my personal favourite actresses of the old movie scene. She is a versatile and intelligent actress with a great amount of flexibility and talent when it comes to her roles. She is able to portray the more difficult and complex characters that led her to become one of the most recognised faces in the cinema of the 60s. I have seen many of her movies and on this day, we celebrate her 87th birthday.
The Academy Awards ceremony is an important Hollywood event that has been taking place since 1928. The Oscar is the most celebrated trophy in the world of entertainment and February 9 2020, will be the 92nd year it has been presented. There have been a number of nominees over the years, who have been unable to attend the ceremony for various reasons, and others accepted the award on their behalf. Sometimes, previous engagements, scheduling conflicts, sickness, or death prevents an appearance at the ceremony. There have also been celebrities to boycott for personal or political reasons.
James Dean is synonymous with the rebellious rockabilly 50s that chimed in with musicians such as Elvis Presley and Eddie Cochran, fashion of swing dresses and leather jackets, and films starring Marilyn Monroe, Marlon Brando and of course, today's feature, James Dean. Today is his 89th Birthday. He may have been questionable in character and his acting talent may not have been as great as everyone claims it to be, but he sure was a cultural phenomenon that we will probably never experience again.
When discussing acting alongside his costar in the 2012 Paul Thomas Anderson masterpiece The Master, Joaquin Phoenix recalled the following:

Veteran actor Sam Elliot is staring in a new Super Bowl commercial with 20 year old Li’l Nas X. Thanks to modern technology it looks as if the 75 year old Elliot is dancing in a competition with the young rapper who has some pretty smooth moves. Elliot said that he himsel, did not have to do much moving, but he did admit that filming the commercial was challenging. He mentioned several times that there were always a lot of people hovering around on the set.

Leaving us a too short, but beautiful and immortal filmography.
