Geena Davis Thought She Had 'Turned a Corner' with Fourth Husband Years Before Their Split

Geena Davis Thought She Had 'Turned a Corner' with Fourth Husband Years Before Their Split
Geena Davis and Dr. Reza Jarrahy’s pairing was unlikely from the start.

The couple, who wed September 1, 2001, have split after 20 years together — first separating on November 15 before Jarrahy filed for divorce on Tuesday, citing irreconcilable differences in court documents obtained by People.

An Iranian-American neurosurgeon 15 years her junior, Jarrahy was 27 when Davis, then 42, met him at a party.

The age difference was an initial stumbling block for Davis. “A relationship with him seemed a little far-fetched,” she told Good Housekeeping in 2006, while recalling her initial attraction to Jarrahy. “I remember thinking, This guy is cute — and ridiculously young.”

Looking Back at Lost in Space

Depending on your age your first encounter with The Space Family Robinson may have been courtesy of Master of Disaster Irwin Allen, who brought the show Lost in Space to Us TV for three seasons in the late ’60s. Joining the technicolor wonder of the original Star Trek in their second series (the first was shot in Black and White) the Lost in Space series was reflective of a future-looking American society, whose own journey to the stars was taking place at the time.

With the best science fiction holding a mirror up to the dreams and troubles of contemporary society, the original Lost in Space may come across as a kitsch take on Forbidden Planet and the numerous other outward bound adventures. However it drew on the public’s fascination with the colonisation of space, as well the encroaching advent of the Cold War, to serve up a memorable

How Scientology Has Affected Tom Cruise's Life

He may be one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, but these days, Tom Cruise may be best known for his ties with the Church of Scientology. The actor has become the poster boy for the Church, and despite dozens of rumors, he hasn't quit Scientology — though the controversy surrounding the religion has only increased. Scroll down to learn more about how Scientology has impacted both his personal life and career. His first wife introduced him to the religion Tom didn't discover Scientology on his own — it was first wife Mimi Rogers, a Scientologist herself, who encouraged him to join, and he did so in 1986. Over the years, Tom has become the religion's most famous face. The Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre International in Los Angeles.

‘Lost in Space’ Trailer Shows Darker, Grittier Tone

Danger Mister Robinson! Netflix has released the official trailer for the rebooted Lost in Space series. The trailer shows a much more serious and darker tone to the series which was once considered a sci-fi action comedy.

The Robinson family, part of a highly trained mission to establish a new colony in space, is unexpectedly pulled off course forcing them to crash land on a lost planet. Danger will find them. Lost in Space premieres April 13, 2018.

From the trailer alone, you can see the production value that Netflix provides. There’s lots of stunning visuals and beautiful landscapes that you can see in numerous pullout shots. You can’t get that kind of quality CGI on network television. Netflix shows why it’s ahead of the game in production and is the place to be.

Lost in Space originally aired back in 1965 and ran for three seasons. With the first

First Trailer for Post-Apocalyptic Survival Thriller 'What Still Remains'

People become their own kind of monster. Spotlight Pictures has released the first trailer for the indie post-apocalyptic thriller titled What Still Remains, from writer/director Josh Mendoza. We've been getting quite a few of these indie post-apocalyptic films recently, and this one already reminds me of all the others. Lulu Antariksa stars a woman struggling to survive in a world long-since destroyed by disease. When a lonely traveler offers her a place in his community, she must decide if the promise of a better life is worth the risk of trusting him. Also stars Liam Hemsworth lookalike Colin O'Donoghue, plus Dohn Norwood, Peter O'Brien, Mimi Rogers, Jeff Kober, Roshon Fegan, Siena Goines, Chris Ellis, and Tobias Jelinek. This unfortunately doesn't look unique or good in any way. But happy to share the trailer anyway.

Joining the Robinsons on their joureny are Major Don West (Mark Goddard), pilot of the Jupiter 2 Spaceship.

Ginger Snaps

Director John Fawcett proves you can teach an old werewolf new tricks in this inventive B thriller satirizing the miseries of high school life. Brigitte and Ginger Fitzgerald are two rebellious siblings who really take this goth business seriously, particularly Ginger whose growing pains include turning into a werewolf. Emily Perkins and Katharine Isabelle are terrific as the supernatural sister act and Mimi Rogers is the supportive but ultimately ineffectual mom.

Review: Interred with Their Bones—Denis Villeneuve's "Blade Runner 2049"

  • MUBI
There’s a nagging question at the heart of Denis Villenueve’s Blade Runner 2049, and it’s to do with need. Why does Ryan Gosling’s Detective K need a robot wife (Ana de Armas), programmed to speak in a diaphanous lisp? Why does he need an apartment? What purpose is there for a robot to blend in? Everyone in his world can almost smell his oiled gears, his falseness. So why does he need the trappings of reality? Like Twin Peaks: The Return, Blade Runner 2049 has to interrogate its own incongruous existence so many years after the artifact that gave it life first entered the cultural bloodstream. Why does this film exist, beyond the potential box office? Why have writer Hampton Fancher and producer Ridley Scott gone back here? Who needs this? The film seems aware of itself as an automaton theatrical event. It watches itself; taking place behind glass,

2005/1987 The Zeéeee marries Kenny Chesney. Just four months later she seeks an anullment for "fraud" but then asks people not to theorize about what "fraud" means. Understandably no one obeys her and rumors explode. On this same day 18 years earlier, another much-gossiped about marriage that ends in weird bitchy rumors: Tom Cruise and Mimi Rogers

Tom Cruise Not Dating Vanessa Kirby Despite Recent Reports

Tom Cruise Not Dating Vanessa Kirby Despite Recent Reports
Tom Cruise is not dating his Mission: Impossible co-star, Vanessa Kirby.

A source close to Kirby tells Et that recent reports claiming the two are dating are simply "not true."

Watch: Tom Cruise Meets Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh -- See the Pics!

"Production hasn't even started yet," the source says, shooting down rumors that Cruise has tapped the 28-year-old actress as wife No. 4.

Kirby has landed a role in Cruise's upcoming Mission: Impossible 6, which begins filming next month in Paris -- though according to In Touch, Cruise has been a big fan of the British actress since seeing her in Netflix's The Crown.

While Et's source slammed reports that the two are dating, Cruise definitely has a history of romancing his co-stars.

The 54-year-old actor met his second wife, Nicole Kidman, on the 1990 set of their film, Days of Thunder, shortly after he divorced his first wife, actress Mimi Rogers. Ten years after Cruise

The Rapture

One of the more unique projects of the decade, director/writer Michael Tolkin’s disturbing 1991 religious fantasy tells the story of Sharon (Mimi Rogers), a young libertine converted to born-again Christianity, who takes drastic measures to ensure that the coming “Rapture” will “save” her young daughter. It’s provocative, to say the least, and in his debut as a Tfh Guru, Michael Tolkin puts it all in properly apocalyptic perspective.

Why I Watch The Ref Every Christmas Eve

Why I Watch The Ref Every Christmas Eve
Every family has their tradition when it comes to the holidays. Ever since I was a kid, we would celebrate with my father's side of the family on Christmas Eve, and then with my mother's side on Christmas Day, a tradition that has remained unchanged to this day. There is one tradition that we added on Christmas Eve night, maybe a decade or so ago, after my younger twin brothers and I would come back to my mom's house after spending the day with our father. We would watch the obscure 1994 R-rated Christmas comedy The Ref. Not It's A Wonderful Life or A Christmas Story or A Miracle of 41st Street, but an underrated and underseen comedy starring Denis Leary, post-Remote Control, Kevin Spacey, pre-Oscar win and Judy Davis, post-Oscar nomination. While The Ref may not be as revered as those aforementioned movies, I will always watch The Ref every Christmas Eve,
