Howie Dorough Dishes on His ‘Bachelor’-Like Romance Ahead of 10th Wedding Anniversary (Exclusive)
Leigh Boniello was a 26-year-old music enthusiast, anxiously starting a new job for the Backstreet Boys during the height of their fame, when suddenly she found herself caught up in an epic made-for-tv romance.

“Her job was to get content of us doing stuff outside of the everyday show ritual, and I was always the one who would put my hand up when they’d ask, ‘Does anyone want to go hang-gliding in Rio today?’” Howie Dorough recalls to Et. “So, she would come out and we did the pyramids and so many fun things. I always joked the website became mostly about me!”

“It was like being on The Bachelor, because it was all these crazy experiences,” adds Leigh. “It was like, ‘Here we are in Mexico, let’s get a private tour of the pyramids and go on crazy adventures together!’ It just lent itself to a romantic situation.”

First Festival Trailer for Documentary 'Grace Jones: Bloodlight & Bami'

"You have to be a high-flyin' bitch sometimes!" An official trailer has arrived online for Sophie Fiennes' new documentary Grace Jones: Bloodlight & Bami, which will be premiering at the Toronto Film Festival coming up next month. Originally titled Grace Jones - The Musical of My Life, the film tells the life story of artist/dancer/actor Grace Jones, who some may recognize as May Day from A View to a Kill, though her career is much more diverse than that. Described as an "observational portrait", "cinema verité-style film", the doc combines intimate personal footage with unique staged musical sequences to give us a look at both her public and private life. This trailer doesn't show much footage, but I am very curious about it, there's something fierce about Grace Jones that's particularly alluring. I'm looking forward to seeing this doc soon.

Cannes Film Review: ‘Visages Villages’

Cannes Film Review: ‘Visages Villages’
There was once a time — it now sounds ageist and sexist — when something would get written off as “an old man’s movie.” That meant a film created by a director at an age where just watching it, you could feel a certain stiffness in the joints, a too-slowed-down-for-its-own-good pace, a nagging (as opposed to enlightening) stillness of gaze. Examples of old man’s movies would be Alain Resnais’ “Wild Grass,” Elia Kazan’s “The Last Tycoon,” and — to me, though many would consider this opinion blasphemous — Akira Kurosawa’s “Ran.” But has there ever been a director who gives the lie to the old-man’s-movie trope like Agnès Varda? She’s 88, and makes films like she’s 28. Her movies are the opposite of old wo(man’s) movies. They’re a tonic — just watching them makes you feel younger.
