John Stamos Says It'd Be ‘a Tragedy' If He Didn't Have Kids With ‘Perfect’ Fiancée Caitlin McHugh (Exclusive)

Et’s Lauren Zima caught up with the Fuller House star at the Garry Marshall Theater's First Founders Gala on Monday, where Stamos got candid about wedding plans, fatherhood dreams, having co-star Bob Saget “copy” his proposal move and a special encounter with Julia Roberts.

“I hope [to have kids],” the 54-year-old actor and musician said about his hopes to start a family. “That's always been my plan. It's just taken me a lot longer than I anticipated. It would be a tragedy if I didn't have children and I finally found the right woman -- the perfect woman.”

From ‘Star Wars’ to ‘Game of Thrones,’ Film and TV Music in a Live Setting Is Thriving

From ‘Star Wars’ to ‘Game of Thrones,’ Film and TV Music in a Live Setting Is Thriving
Just a few years ago, “film music in concert” translated to short suites by big-name movie composers (Henry Mancini, John Williams) performed at summer pops concerts. Today, established American orchestras that once didn’t look at the merging of screen and music seriously, take heed of live-to-picture performances as very big business, with concert halls packing in audiences around the world.

That’s something of a surprise, considering how most classical musicians had traditionally looked down their collective noses at movie music. “Film music was a pejorative, and that was the end of it,” David Newman says. Now they see the attendance figures, and attitudes have changed considerably.

Indeed, just a month ago, the New York Philharmonic completed a three-week, four-film “Star Wars” series with Newman conducting John Williams’ scores for the original trilogy plus “The Force Awakens” to sold-out crowds at New York’s David Geffen Hall. “The orchestra absolutely killed it,” says Newman.

Life Isn't Good, It's Excellent

David Robilliard was a poet and painter who lived from 1952 to 1988.

Eating Out You're like a potato. You'd go with anything.

"David Robilliard was the sweetest, kindest, most infuriating, artistic foul-mouthed, witty, charming, handsome, thoughtful, unhappy, loving and friendly person we ever met.

Over the nine years of our friendship David came closer to us than any other person. He will live forever in our hearts and minds." Gilbert and George wrote the above on July 7, 1990. "Starting with pockets filled with disorganised writings and sketches, he went on to produce highly original poetry, drawings and paintings. His truthfulness, sadness desperation and love of people gave his work a brilliance and beauty that stands out a mile."

Willem Dafoe On What He Learned From Working With Non-Actors on ‘The Florida Project’ — Exclusive
Willem Dafoe is a yogi when it comes to career dexterity. He’s equally comfortable in big, flashy blockbusters as ambitious, auteur-driven projects, juggling leading and supporting roles with ease. By the time he’s spotted in a misfire, he’s already got a gem in the pipeline. “The Florida Project” represents one of his most engaging performances in years, and makes him an Oscar frontrunner for best supporting actor, but it’a also a fraction of his recent output.

Two months before the Cannes premiere of “The Florida Project,” in which he’s the only veteran in a cast dominated by non-professionals, he surfaced in a cartoonish role opposite Matt Damon in the international blockbuster “The Great Wall,” and landed in two Netflix genre films — “What Happened to Monday” and “Death Note” — before the end of the summer.

Filmmaking Legends on How New York’s Era of Decay Sparked a Creative Revolution

Filmmaking Legends on How New York’s Era of Decay Sparked a Creative Revolution
In the 1970s and early ’80s, New York City embodied the revolution taking place in American cinema. It was brash and brutal, crude and powerful, sexy and grimey, and had a swagger that was unmistakable.

It was also a low point for the city. The Bronx was burning, crime was rising and city hall was broke. But even as respectable folks fled for the safety of the suburbs, New York became a canvas for talented filmmakers. From “The French Connection” to “Saturday Night Fever,” it posed as the setting of classic films that ushered in a new era of on-screen realism. It was the age of De Niro and Pacino, Scorsese and Lumet, talents who upended the sterile and factory-like approach to making movies that dominated the studio system.

It’s a revolution in filmmaking that’s over. Just as Times Square, the setting of “Taxi Driver,” has been replaced by a fantasyland for tourists, movies

Bruce Willis and Wife Emma's Domestic Bliss: House Is 'Filled With Joy'
Bruce Willis is one of the biggest stars in the world, but when he's home, he's just your average father and husband, with his wife, Emma Heming Willis, and daughters, Evelyn and Mabel Ray.

The couple sat down with director M. Night Shyamalan for an interview in Elle Decor, revealing the ups and downs of their kid-centric domestic life, where quiet time is indeed hard to find when you've got a 3-year-old and a 5-year-old running around.

"With two kids? Not many places to find peace, but my office works," Bruce says. "I’ve made it so boring in there that the kids want nothing to do with it."

"I have to admit, though, that we thrive off the chaos," Emma adds.
