Exclusive: Pete Davidson Thanks Girlfriend Cazzie David For Helping Him Stay Sober: 'I'm Very Lucky'
Things are really going well for Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson. The young comedian is in a strong, supportive relationship with girlfriend Cazzie David, and he recently opened up publicly about being "happy and sober for the first time in 8 years," in a heartfelt message on Instagram.

Davidson's newfound contentment was evident on Tuesday when he and David attended the Natural Resources Defense Council's Stand Up For The Planet Benefit gala in Los Angeles.

The couple stopped to talk with Et's Lauren Zima, and the 23-year-old comic couldn't have been sweeter about his ladylove.

"She's the most beautiful girl in the world, look how lucky I am. She's so smart, look how smart she is," Davidson marveled. "She is a very, very wonderful lady."

Days of Our Lives Review: Another Unnecessary Death

Family has always been the backbone of Days of Our Lives.

No matter what crazy things were going on, the Hortons and the Bradys stuck together. Weddings and funerals were important, emotional centerpieces because they were a time for family members to celebrate or mourn together.

But when Julie's son David died, the funeral paid only lip service to either him or his family, instead serving as a backdrop for all sorts of other things that the writers apparently thought were more important than mourning David.

First, there was the pre-funeral nonsense.

Claire and Ciara fought over the fact that Claire wasn't dressed yet, but the real problem between them is they both love their roommate Theo.

Love triangles in which two women are so invested in the same man that they forget why they were even friends are incredibly cliche, uninteresting, and obnoxious.

Days has not one, but two such triangles,

Spielberg at 70: dark futures, nuked fridges and the 2000s

Paul Bullock Dec 15, 2016

Our salute to Steven Spielberg at 70 moves to the 2000s: A.I, Munich, Minority Report, Catch Me If You Can & Crystal Skull.

By the end of the 1990s, Spielberg found himself in a position of unparalleled luxury. As an executive, he’d set up Amblin and DreamWorks and was enjoying success with both, while as a director he’d ridden through an uneven decade to achieve the critical success he’d longed for. Where do you go from there? What do you do when you’re the film-maker who’s done everything? Well, Spielberg himself never seemed sure of how to answer that question because during the first ten years of the new millennium he hopped from genre to genre, covering sci-fi and historical thriller, retro caper and fish-out-of-water comedy. It's one of the most eclectic decades of his career and, in my opinion at least, the

The Funniest Movie at Sundance Is Also the Sobbiest

  • BuzzSugar
Maybe you've never heard of writer/director Chris Kelly, but you definitely know Saturday Night Live, and you have probably seen - and adored - the Beygency skit and last Fall's Adele Thanksgiving skit, both written by SNL alum Kelly. Now he's moved on to films with Other People, which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival and is blowing audiences away with how funny it is - while also being one of the teariest showings. In Kelly's debut as a feature film writer and director, he goes to the trusty well of his own life: the movie follows a young man named David (played by Jesse Plemons), a comedy writer who moves home from New York City when his mother gets cancer. Molly Shannon plays David's mother, Joanne, and holy hell: she is incredible. Joanne, a retired teacher, has a rare form of cancer, and the movie chronicles a year

While the couple cited “an irretrievable breakdown of the relationship” as the cause for the split, Leoni claims that despite the deterioration of their marriage, she’ll never be able to hate Duchovny.

"Listen, David gave me the two greatest gifts on the planet; I don't know how I could ever hate him,” Leoni, who has Kyd Miller, 12, and Madelaine West, 15, with the Silicone Valley star, told Parade. “We've always loved each other, and we adore these kids."

In their divorce filing, Leoni and Duchovny agreed to have joint legal custody of their children, with Leoni having primary physical custody.

Movie Review - Delivery Man (2013)

Delivery Man, 2013

Directed by Ken Scott.

Starring Vince Vaughn, Chris Pratt and Cobie Smulders.

Synopsis:

An affable underachiever finds out he's fathered 533 children through anonymous donations to a fertility clinic 20 years ago. Now he must decide whether or not to come forward when 142 of them file a lawsuit to reveal his identity.

Marketing can be a funny thing. If you've seen the posters, trailers and the rest of the marketing material for Delivery Man, you'd be forgiven for thinking that this was 2014's 'Vince Vaughn wacky knock-about comedy'. His mere presence would suggest that the movie carries a light and comedic tone, but Ken Scott's Delivery Man is not that film at all. For starters, it's not even a comedy.

Delivery Man is an English language remake of Scott's own French-Canadian movie Starbuck in which meat truck driver David Wozniak (Vaughn) discovers, through a mix-up at a fertility

'Nebraska' review: Bruce Dern in another Alexander Payne masterpiece

'Nebraska' review: Bruce Dern in another Alexander Payne masterpiece
Director: Alexander Payne; Screenwriter: Bob Nelson; Starring: Bruce Dern, Will Forte, June Squibb, Bob Odenkirk, Stacy Keach; Running time: 114 mins; Certificate: 15

Alexander Payne is steadily crafting a body of work that will cement his place as one of America's great filmmakers. He skilfully dissects the small fish in that biggest of ponds - the United States - tracing the spirit of optimism and defeat through films like Election, About Schmidt, Sideways, The Descendants and, now, Nebraska, a priceless gem of a comedy drama starring Bruce Dern.

The ageing process emphasises that gradual erosion of hope, as does the gritty monochrome print he employs here. And yet, much laugh-out-loud comedy is derived from the futility as Woody (Dern) drags his broken-down body across Middle America to present a certificate that names him the winner of a million dollars. His son David (SNL alumnus Will Forte) bangs his head against a wall

'Nebraska' (2013) Movie Review

Set in the wide expanses of middle America, Alexander Payne's Nebraska still manages to feel small and claustrophobic a lot of the time. While in some ways the film is charming and gentle, it's largely acidic and sour. The motivations at the heart of the film are love, but the weathered and worn souls that inhabit Payne's windswept, black-and-white landscape, conjuring memories of Peter Bogdanovich's The Last Picture Show, are either too tired or too afraid to admit they even care any longer. The weight of this burden is not only seen on the characters' faces but felt by the audience throughout. Meet Woody (Bruce Dern), the grumbling, aged soul at the center of Payne's story. He received a "winning" sweepstakes mailer, the kind most of us know to throw away, and now believes he's the winner of one million dollars. Tucking his winning ticket into his left breast pocket,

Kirstie Alley on 'Downton Abbey': 'I just want a role'

Kirstie Alley is happy to show it's not all laughs where she's concerned.

Best-known for such high-spirited ventures as "Cheers" -- for which she won an Emmy -- and her two stints on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars," the actress has more humor in her future with her upcoming TV Land sitcom "Kirstie."

First, though, she makes a dramatic stop: Saturday's (Aug. 18) new Lifetime movie "Baby Sellers" casts her as an adoption-agency chief using questionable means to acquire youngsters for childless couples.

"The last couple of years have just been a ball," the ever-lively Alley tells Zap2it. "When 'Dancing With the Stars' first came up for me, every person on my team said, 'Don't do it.' Well, that always makes me rise to the challenge. I realized, 'This could be a huge mistake, or it could be glorious.' And it was a challenge I couldn't resist.

David Spenser obituary

Child radio star of the 1940s and 50s best remembered for playing Richmal Crompton's Just William

David Spenser, who has died aged 79, was the pre-eminent child radio star of the 1940s and 50s and will be best remembered for his portrayal on air of Just William. The author Richmal Crompton cast him in the role, in a series of dramatisations of her novels about the raucous but endearing 11-year-old outlaw.

This was in 1948, when David turned 14 and was already a seasoned radio actor – performing more than one play a week, he once told me. He had come into acting through a ruse set up by his ambitious mother and a BBC friend: he was lured into Broadcasting House and found himself in a studio being auditioned by the Children's Hour producer Josephine Plummer. For playing the lead in Just William he received the standard juvenile fee of four guineas

Victoria Beckham cheered her husband, David Beckham, on from the stands of Parc de Princes stadium during his first Saint-Germain soccer match yesterday in Paris.

The combination left David overjoyed, and he shared his gratitude, saying, "We have played better but it was very important to win. Today was the perfect day.

David Farrell obituary

Photographer celebrated for his informal portraits of artists, actors and musicians

David Farrell, who has died aged 93, was known primarily for his photographic portraits of the most prominent artists, actors, authors and, particularly, musicians of his time. These ranged from classical performers such as Yehudi Menuhin, Ravi Shankar and Jacqueline du Pré to Louis Armstrong, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. He would take his portable darkroom with him to filming locations, where he photographed Albert Finney, Julie Christie, Laurence Olivier and Ralph Richardson, among others. His main body of work dates from the mid-1950s to the 1980s, by which time he was working primarily in cinema, but he continued with his photography well into the digital age.

Taking Henri Cartier-Bresson's "humanitarian" photography as his model, Farrell specialised in taking portraits in informal situations – he preferred to photograph artists at home or in the studio, rather than in
