Blythe Danner In Remission From Same Cancer That Claimed Husband Bruce Paltrow Twenty Years Ago
Blythe Danner has disclosed that she is in remission from the same relatively rare oral cancer that claimed the life of her husband, producer Bruce Paltrow, in 2002.

In an interview with People magazine, the Meet The Parents actor and mother of Gwyneth Paltrow and Jake Paltrow, revealed that she was diagnosed in 2018 with adenoid cystic carcinoma, an oral cancer that usually develops in the salivary glands. “I remember I looked up at heaven and said to Bruce, ‘Are you lonely up there?'” she says in the interview. “It’s a sneaky disease. But I’m fine and dandy now. And I’m lucky to be alive.”

Danner says she has undergone three surgeries for the cancer, the most recent in 2020 when the cancerous tissue was removed.

“Everyone is touched by cancer in some way,” she says, “but it’s unusual for a couple to have the same cancer.” She adds,

The 12 Best Ben Stiller Movies, Ranked

The 12 Best Ben Stiller Movies, Ranked
Who would have expected that Derek Zoolander himself would end up becoming one of today's most prominent dramatic storytellers? In recent years, Ben Stiller has set his comedic aspirations aside for an emphasis on prestige television. He directed the entirety of the riveting prison break miniseries "Escape at Dannemora" and the psychological thriller "Severance." If you've been paying attention, it's been clear that Stiller is a creative storyteller who knows how to surprise an audience. It's only a surprise to see the new direction in his career because he's always been making us laugh so much.

In the late 1990s, a group of comic actors known as the "Frat Pack" began to dominate mainstream comedy. While the careers of Will Ferrell, Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn, Steve Carrell, Jack Black, and Paul Rudd were fairly consistent, Stiller managed to mix in a variety of independent projects alongside mainstream studio films. Although

Robert De Niro vs Al Pacino – Face Off
Over the years, cinema has featured multiple actors who share so much chemistry that they wind up appearing in several movies together. The late 60s and early 70s saw Paul Newman and Robert Redford team up for timeless roles in The Sting and Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid. While the not-too-distant past has seen the likes of Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson collaborate across several successful genre films and more recently Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone have lit up the screen as a couple in love throughout several films, most notably 2016’s LA LA Land.

Today, we’re comparing two of the greatest titans to have ever graced the silver screen. We’re pitting the raging bull himself, Robert De Niro against Tony Montana incarnate, Al Pacino! These two acting legends have only shared the screen four times (so far), most famously in Michael Mann’s Heat, but

Every Main Character In Clerks III Ranked Worst To Best

Every Main Character In Clerks III Ranked Worst To Best
The original "Clerks" is a cult comedy classic, a movie made for next-to-nothing by first-time director Kevin Smith, starring a bunch of his friends in a convenience store. The sincere yet directionless Dante, who's "not even supposed to be here today," and his motor-mouthed pop culture-obsessed best friend Randal spend most of the movie riffing with each other and the bizarre customers that frequent their Quick Stop.

This indie darling spawned the View Askewniverse, which includes "Chasing Amy," "Dogma," "Mallrats," "Clerks II," a "Clerks" animated series, and comic book, both "Jay and Silent Bob" movies, and now "Clerks III." So technically, Kevin Smith beat Marvel to the punch regarding interconnected cinematic universes. (Just saying.)

"Clerks III" picks up with Randal and Dante, now middle-aged and not much further ahead in life. Sure they co-own the Quick Stop now, but after a heart attack that nearly kills Randal, he is inspired

Ben Stiller Brings His Daughter Ella Stiller To 2022 Emmy Awards

Ben Stiller Brings His Daughter Ella Stiller To 2022 Emmy Awards
Ben Stiller brought his 20-year-old daughter, Ella Olivia Stiller, as his date for the 2022 Emmy Awards on Monday night.

The duo walked the red carpet together. Ben is nominated for outstanding directing for a drama series for his work on the Apple TV+ show Severance. He shared last month that his kids are big supporters for him as the first test screening.

Ben shares daughter Ella, 20, and son Quinlin, 17, with wife Christine Taylor. He revealed earlier this year that his eldest child didn’t feel her parents were fully present while she was growing up.

“It’s me not being there in the ways I saw my parents not being there,” said Ben. “I had always thought, ‘Well, I won’t do that.'”

During the Covid-19 pandemic, the family has gotten a lot closer, especially since Ben and Taylor rekindled their relationship four years after separating.

‘Me Time’ Review: Kevin Hart And Mark Wahlberg Star In Netflix Comedy That’s Laugh And Chemistry Free

‘Me Time’ Review: Kevin Hart And Mark Wahlberg Star In Netflix Comedy That’s Laugh And Chemistry Free
Me Time, directed and written by John Hamburg (Meet the Parents), pairs Hollywood powerhouses Kevin Hart and Mark Wahlberg in a chemistry-free friendship full of slapstick comedy and high jinks. Hamburg is known for his comedic work. The same goes for Hart and Wahlberg, but the three combined created something full of hot air. Regina Hall also stars in the film and is relegated to the background as the nagging significant other. It’s actually impressive how unfunny this film is and that one must sit through every painful moment until the credits roll.

The movie, which debuts on Netflix on Friday, opens with Sonny Fisher (Hart) and Huck Dembo (Wahlberg) celebrating the latter’s 29th birthday in Moab, Utah. As expected, something wacky happens to Sonny, thus setting the tone for their friendship. Fast forward 15 years later, and Sonny is now a househusband who cooks, cleans and is president of the PTA.

Casting a Casting Director: How Allison Jones Ended Up in Front of the Camera on ‘Barry’ and ‘Curb’

Casting a Casting Director: How Allison Jones Ended Up in Front of the Camera on ‘Barry’ and ‘Curb’
Casting directors typically work offscreen, sifting through dozens, if not hundreds, of self-taped auditions and in-person sessions to find the perfect performers for each pivotal role. But what if the perfect performer is the casting director? What if they’re asked to act on not one, but two Emmy-nominated HBO comedies? What if, rather than sitting behind a desk, they’re asked to sit behind a desk in front of a camera?

Well, if you’re Allison Jones, you do your job — even if its unconventional accompaniments aren’t exactly enticing.

“She approached it somewhere between getting a lethal injection and a root canal,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm” showrunner Jeff Schaffer said about Jones’ appearance in Season 11. “She’s like, ‘Really? You don’t need me to do this.’ We’re like, ‘No, no, we do. We do.'”

In her day job, Jones is an industry titan. She’s responsible

Ben Stiller On Making ‘Severance’, Meeting Volodymyr Zelenskyy And Prioritizing Fatherhood

Ben Stiller On Making ‘Severance’, Meeting Volodymyr Zelenskyy And Prioritizing Fatherhood
It’s a little over a month since Ben Stiller returned from Ukraine. It was there, as part of his work representing the Un Refugee Agency, that Stiller was granted an audience with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, currently defending his country from a war of Russian aggression. It isn’t often that Ben Stiller is starstruck, but he marveled at Zelenskyy’s path, from comic actor to unflinching war premier. “I was really taken by the resilience of the people of Ukraine, and of the President,” he says now. “His incredible sense of how he has risen to the moment and offered his people leadership and true resolve to get through this awful situation.”

It would be churlish — insulting, even — to draw a comparison between a man fighting for the survival of his country and one who has just directed several episodes of a popular new television show. But leadership — particularly
