Ashton Kutcher, Carrie Underwood and Kristen Bell have joined forces with the End It Movement—a coalition of the world's leading organizations in the fight for freedom—and all have lent their voices in the fight against modern day slavery. Kutcher is the founder of Thorn, a task force comprised of tech companies fighting against the sexual exploitation of children. Earlier this week, the actor presented a powerful testimony in a recent hearing convened by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in an effort to raise awareness. But, as previously mentioned, he's not the only famous face to use his celebrity platform to highlight an important cause... Just »
By now, it's no secret that Hollywood has given award season a political tint. We're got some of the biggest ceremonies of the industry under our belt (with the Oscars still on the horizon, of course), and it seems like every show is more political than the last. It should also come as no surprise that the primary impetus for the movement comes from the election of President Donald Trump and the avalanche of worrying executive orders that accompanied his first couple of weeks in office. The real question is, what triggered this swell of political commentary in the first place? It might just have been the very moment that Trump became president-elect that guaranteed this kind of Hollywood blowback. After all, celebrities began opposing Donald Trump directly after the election and well ahead of award season. It is possible, though, that award season offered the perfect platform to speak out at the perfect time. »

Chicago – The photograph of the 2016 movie year is undoubtedbly the iconic shot of Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, caught in mid dance, in the musical “La La Land.” The film received 14 nominations for this Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony (Feb. 26th), and the “Unit Still Photographer” who got the shot was Dale Robinette.
“Uncle Dale” Robinette first contacted me via email in 2013, to give information about some photos he took on the film “Lovelace.” Ever since then he has been a reliable email pal, sending me image after image from the movie sets that he is “blessed” (his word) to work on. He has plied his skills in Hollywood as a Unit Still Photographer since 1988, after a career as a stage and television actor in New York and Los Angeles. Starting with a TV short called “The Big Five” (1988), he has worked his way up the ladder, and has built »

Earlier this month we saw a passionate Ashton Kutcher speaking to congress about human trafficking, something he takes extremely seriously. So seriously that this is all he spends his day time doing. Kutcher is passionate about it and you can see right past his celebrity when hearing him talk about it. I bring this up because while not many celebrities do that kind of good in the world, there are plenty out there who go unnoticed and are not the people expected them to be. Today that person is Rihanna and she’s not going unnoticed. Rihanna has just been named

[[tmz:video id="0_08hl9i9f"]] Ashton Kutcher and Sen. John McCain really did hit it off on Capitol Hill ... due to the actor's passion for something other than Hollywood. We got McCain after Kutcher testified about the horrors of human trafficking, but as we told you McCain still snuck in a playful jab at Kutcher's expense as they were closing the Senate hearing. Seems there's mutual admiration, because Ashton hung out with McCain afterward for a private tour of the Capitol. »

The pair both attended a Senate committee hearing on Wednesday, where Ashton testified about modern slavery on behalf of Thorn, the foundation he cofounded to help track victims of child trafficking using innovation in technology. At the conclusion of the hearing, the Arizona senator and former Gop presidential nominee poked fun at Ashton's career as a Hollywood heartthrob. "I want to thank Elisa [Massimino], and Ashton, you were better looking in the movies . . . anyway." Luckily he also tweeted out a video of the adorable moment, which only could have been made better if Justin Trudeau had somehow been involved.

From Hollywood to the Hill.
Ashton Kutcher testified in front of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Wednesday, speaking about modern day slavery and human trafficking.

The Grammys took over La on Sunday night, and in addition to celebrating music, things also (and understandably) got political. The band Highly Suspect hit the red carpet to make a bold statement about President Donald Trump and his controversial first few weeks in office. The band's lead singer and guitarist, Johnny Stevens, wore a black jacket with the word "Impeach" on the back. In addition to that clear message, he also flipped off the camera while getting support from his bandmates. The members of Highly Suspect aren't the first celebrities to use red carpets to send a message. At the SAG Awards in January, The Big Bang Theory's Simon Helberg and his wife protested Trump's immigration ban while posing for photos. Ashton Kutcher also spoke out against it while on stage at the same show. »
