Julie Andrews regales Stephen Colbert with tales of ‘My Fair Lady’

The beloved actress recalled her time auditioning for the role with Stephen Colbert, and an “amazing” true story about what Richard Rodgers   of Rodgers and Hammerstein told her. Rodgers was sitting all alone — or maybe with somebody — and he came up on stage after. When she mentioned the role in My Fair Lady, Rodgers generously responded, “I tell you what, if they ask you to do the show, I think you should take that one. I’d never met him, and he said to me,   ‘That was absolutely adequate.’”
Noting   he was just teasing, Andrews   recalled being asked if she was auditioning for anyone else. Julie Andrews made her grand return to the Ed Sullivan Theater for The Late Show Friday night, having appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1961 to perform a song from My Fair Lady. After auditioning for her now iconic role in My Fair Lady with   lyricist Alan J. Lerner, she went over to audition in front of   Rodgers for the musical Pipe Dream. Elsewhere, Andrews previewed her Netflix children’s show Julie’s Greenroom, reminisced about her   stunts filming   Mary Poppins, and challenged Colbert to perform vocal exercises through a mouthful of grapes. If they don’t ask you, come back and see me because I’d very much like to use you.”
Watch Andrews tell the story in the clip above. Show Full Article Without chewing them, Colbert had to recite as clearly as possible,   “With blackest moss, the flower pots were thickly crusted, one and all.”

Ryan Adams performed two ‘Prisoner’ tracks on ‘The Tonight Show’

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon   airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. “I would have died inside if I hadn’t.”
Watch the performances below. Ryan Adams has hit the live performance circuit to croon tracks from his latest LP Prisoner. The singer-songwriter took the Tonight Show stage Friday with his band to give live renditions of two tracks from the 2017 album, which also dropped Friday, including the first single “Do You Still Love Me?” and “To Be Without You.”
The album marks the return to record-making for the alt-country artist after his divorce from actress Mandy Moore in 2016. Prior to the new original material, Adams covered Taylor Swift’s 1989 in 2015, while also working as a producer for several artists, including Jenny Lewis on her 2014 album   Voyager. “This record mattered more to me than any record before it and my life depended on making it,” said Adams in an Instagram post. Prisoner is more than just another LP in his catalogue, though, as he shared his deep feelings on the new record in December. ET on NBC. Show Full Article

Leah Remini agrees Tom Cruise could ‘single-handedly’ end Scientology

“Not only does Tom Cruise do exactly that… Now, I don’t want you to get the idea that he’s not, that certain policies are not being bent for him because they are and that is the truth, and that is part of the hypocrisy.” She then agreed with   Maher’s assertion that Cruise “could single-handedly end this,” given his celebrity within the church. Leah Remini:   Scientology and the Aftermath   explores   the stories of ex-Scientologists and how the church has harmed them. Show Full Article Leah Remini, star and producer of   the A&E docuseries Scientology and the Aftermath,   agreed with   a startling conclusion from Bill Maher on HBO’s Real Time Friday night: Tom Cruise could single-handedly end the cult of Scientology. “Changing the planet? “You’re telling me Tom Cruise does this?” Maher asked. “I didn’t realize that because we are required to study two-and-a-half hours daily, like minimum. “I’m in a tough position,” Remini told Maher, “because on one hand I’m attacking this cult and at the same time I know that the people who are still in are under this spell of doing good for the world because that’s what the organization is disseminating. As she explained, members of the church (a word she uses loosely when talking about this dogma) are “self-brainwashing” through hours of daily study. Remini added that the church is pushing the idea that Cruise   is single-handedly “clearing the planet, is changing the planet,” with his success reinforcing that idea. We are looking up the words, we are being   checked out on the policies of Scientology,” Remini, a former member, said. “Yes,” she said. ”

‘The Late Show’: Christina Hendricks relives high school through old photos

To add color to her memories, Colbert whipped out two old photos from her school days, both of which feature a young Hendricks with short hair, a dark lip, and a smoldering look to the camera. “At any point did Molly Ringwald sue you for identity theft?” joked Colbert. Show Full Article Watch the full clip above. While high school is behind her, the actress shared she became “a theater kid” at a young age in Idaho, carrying through to her teenage years in Virginia. “It teaches you how to see through other people’s eyes — have empathy for other people.”
In Fist Fight, now in theaters, Hendricks’ character only seems to have empathy for Ice Cube’s character, who’s ready to beat down Charlie Day over some drama at school, where they’re all teachers. “That was much more Samantha Mathis from Pump Up the Volume, for those of you who remember that movie,” she said in return. “It was the best thing that ever happened to me,” said Hendricks. “We shot in an old high school in Atlanta, and I walked in and the smell smells like a high school, and I felt like the nerd I was [back then],” said Hendricks. During her visit, the Mad Men actress talked about the surreal feeling of visiting a school to shoot her upcoming comedy Fist Fight. Stephen Colbert helped Christina Hendricks take a walk down high school memory lane on The Late Show   Friday night.

Stephen Colbert mocks Moby’s dirt on Trump with fake celeb tweets

3-the trump administration needs a war, most likely with iran. -moby
A post shared by moby XⓋX (@moby) on Feb 13, 2017 at 8:49am PST

“Now, random celebs claiming to have dirt on the President seems crazy,” Colbert said during his opening monologue, “until you remember that the President is a random celeb.” Referring to Tom Arnold’s claim of possessing “all the outtakes of Trump saying the n-word on The Apprentice,” Colbert added, “Things are so weird right now that Moby and Tom Arnold seem more reliable than [Trump counselor] Kellyanne Conway and [White House Press Secretary] Sean Spicer.”
Colbert then posted fake tweets from other celebrities who are “coming out of the woodwork with their own Trump scoops.” He joked about Coolio reporting   about Trump “planning a ground war with China. 4-there are right wing plans to get rid of trump. I heard it from my cousin, who dated a Chinese girl once. these are truly baffling and horrifying times, as we have an incompetent president who is essentially owned by a foreign power. 2-the trump administration is in collusion with the russian government, and has been since day one. The electronic artist, whom Colbert joked looks like a “baby in graduate school,” earlier claimed to have sources confirming Trump’s ties to Russia before posting some of   these allegations   on Instagram. On Friday’s The Late Show, host Stephen Colbert unearthed more   “totally real, actual tweets that we definitely did not just make up” from celebrities with even more scandalous details. i'm writing these things so that when/if these things happen there will be a public record beforehand. Moby isn’t the only “random celebrity” who has dirt on President Trump. he's being blackmailed by the russian government, not just for being peed on by russian hookers, but for much more nefarious things. he's a drain on their fundraising and their approval ratings, and the gop and koch brothers and other u.s right wing groups are planning to get rid of trump. “After spending the weekend talking to friends who work in dc i can safely(well, ‘accurately’…) post the following things,” Moby wrote on Instagram, claiming “the russian dossier on trump is real” and Trump is “being blackmailed by the russian government, not just for being peed   on by russian hookers, but for much more nefarious things.”

after spending the weekend talking to friends who work in dc i can safely(well, 'accurately'…) post the following things: 1-the russian dossier on trump is real. 5-intelligence agencies around the world, and here in the u.s, are horrified by the incompetence of the trump administration, and are working to present information that will lead to high level firings and, ultimately, impeachment.

Angelina Jolie and her kids attend emotional Cambodian movie premiere

The premiere of First They Killed My Father, was screened in the temple of the elephant terrace, a couple of kilometers   from where Jolie shot her breakout 2001 film Tomb Raider. It’s a great honor to present this film to all of you, and to stand by my mother and my family. Show Full Article “I read Loung’s book many years ago,” Jolie said at the press conference. “This film was not made to focus on the horrors of the past but to celebrate the resilience, kindness, and talent of the Cambodian people. This article originally appeared on PEOPLE.com. Her sons Maddox, who was born in Cambodia, and Pax were both involved   in the film’s production. In 2015, Jolie told PEOPLE, “Pax is doing a lot of the stills,” adding, “The whole movie is from a child’s point of view.” (See the photos Pax shot above.)
First They Killed My Father   will be released globally via Netflix   later this year. It’s important for young people to learn about the Khmer Rouge. Jolie used only Cambodian actors, many of whom are the survivors or children of the survivors of the genocide. “My mum is older so knows the story. We finally made it. The actress’s love affair with Cambodia began after she filmed   Tomb Raider   in the country in 2000. While speaking at the premiere, Jolie referenced her deep connection to Cambodia since it is where her first child, Maddox, is from. Presented   at the Terrace of the Elephant in the ancient Angkor Wat temple complex, the film was screened to both Hollywood and Cambodian royalty, as the country’s King Norodom Sihamoni and Queen Mother Norodom Monineath Sihanouk were in attendance, along with a host of senior government officials. The actress was joined by her children — Maddox, 15, Pax, 13, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 8 —   at the world premiere of her passion project,   First They Killed My Father   in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Angelina Jolie‘s long-awaited Cambodian film premiere was   a family affair. And now I’d like to introduce my little sister Shiloh, as she has something to say.”
Little Shiloh then stepped up to the microphone and told the crowd in Khmer: “My name is Shiloh and I love Cambodia.”

Cheany Nem, 30, from Kampong Cham province came to the premiere with her husband, mother, niece and nephew after hearing that locals could see the film for free. refugee agency, UNHCR, for which she is now a   special envoy. I heard from her what happened but I wanted to know for myself. And part of this country is always with me: Maddox.”
Maddox himself took center stage when he spoke to the   audience, saying:
“Thank you, everyone, for attending tonight. “It helped to open my eyes to what was going on the world.”
She added, “I wanted to tell the story to through the eyes of the child’s point of view, the love of a family, to show the beauty of the country and understand what Maddox’s parents may have gone through.”

More than two million people, out of a total population of seven million, were killed during the purge, including Ung’s father, mother, and two sisters. “It’s very important for the kids — they don’t know about all the killings at the time — so by watching this movie they can learn about the history of Cambodia.”

“Of course it;s hard to talk about what happened, but a movie can say it,” Rady continued. “When I was young I learned about the Khmer Rouge from school. But they were not allowed in because they don’t have an invitation and access was tight due to the attendance of the royal family. “He was the one who just called it and said he was ready and that he wanted to work on it, which he did,” Jolie recently told The Guardian   of Maddox’s role in the film. Jolie, Ung and the producers   hoped the experience of making the film would   be cathartic for those who participated.   Part of my heart is and will always be in this country. “He read the script, helped with notes, and was in the production meetings.”

Jolie’s second-oldest son, Pax, was also involved in the production. Learning about it made me feel hurt and that makes me want to come see the movie.”
Rady, who works in Siem Reap, agreed about the importance of seeing the movie. In 2002, Jolie adopted her first child, Maddox,   from a Battambang orphanage. “I hope for the future that our country will teach the youth the history of Cambodia so they know what happened.”
Nem said that Jolie was obviously a big draw for seeing the film but added:
“It’s an important memory for every Khmer person. At the press conference, Jolie said she thinks of Cambodia “like a second home,” adding, “Maddox is happy to be back in his country.”
Based on the autobiography of the same name by Cambodian human-rights activist Loung Ung, a friend of Jolie’s,   First They Killed My Father   tells the true story of the devastation inflicted on Cambodia by the Khmer Rouge communist party in the 1970s. “My kids don’t know anything about the history,” the 40-year-old said outside the premiere. “Me, like a lot of young people, want to know what happened during the Khmer Rouge,” Nem said. “I cannot find words to express what it means to me that I was entrusted with telling part of the story of this country,” she said. Jolie and her family posed for a photo with the royal family at the premiere. In addition, Jolie insisted only their native Khmer be spoken throughout the film. “Without Cambodia I may never have become a mother. They want to know”
Earlier in the day, the Oscar winner made her first public appearance since she filed for divorce from Brad Pitt, when she attended a press event for the film. As the heat of the day wore   off, local families picnicked along the banks of a nearby lake, while monkeys scavenged the area for scraps of food. “The heart of it is Loung’s story, it’s the story of a war through the eyes of a child, but it is also the story of a country,” Jolie   said in a promotional clip for the film. Not long after she was finished with production, she   returned to Cambodia as a volunteer for the U.N. “Most of all, this film is my way of saying thank you to Cambodia,” she continued.

Sierra from ‘Survivor: Game Changers’ on being a last-minute addition to the cast

But as I was sitting there —   which is so rare and so far it’s only happened once —   I thought, how badass would it be if the girls just freakin’ dominated and came together and had this crazy alliance and made it to the end? So what was that like? I was a very late addition, so I am super-grateful to be here, but it was crazy. So I’m hoping that can happen. I played a very loyal game my season and hopefully they’ll see that and I can use that and get really far and make a really big move and surprise everybody. Who do you want to work with in the game? You were a very late addition to the cast when Natalie Anderson had to back out at the last minute. SIERRA DAWN THOMAS: I will win Survivor: Game Changers because people are going to underestimate me. Why are you gong to win Survivor: Game Changers? Probably not, because girls are freakin’ crazy and can’t keep their s— together, but I’m hoping that works. Watch the video above and read the Q&A below to see for yourself. I had to get everything in order and it was absolutely mayhem. She wasn’t supposed to be there. There are a lot of things I’m going to do different this time. I think people look at me and just see sweet Sierra —   somebody who’s easy to talk to and easy to get along with, and per my season probably think I’m not going to do anything big, which I think is going to help me this season. Me and Troyzan are very close. I was actually at a rodeo, a couple of hours from home, got the phone call Friday afternoon, my flight left on Sunday. I’m going to play a great social game, physical, and I am ready to make some big moves. Because I have my people. Sierra also promises to “do something really big” this time and spills the beans on why she changed her entire strategy after being at Ponderosa during pre-game. But I just hope that everybody is under the understanding that this is a game and it’s going to be full of deceit and big moves, and hopefully friendships will still live after. Sierra Dawn Thomas made it all the way to the casting finals of Survivor: Game Changers, only to be told “Thanks, but no thanks.” But then fate intervened. I think they’ll not feel too threatened by me. For more Survivor scoop, follow Dalton on Twitter @DaltonRoss. I get along with guys generally way better than girls anyways, and so I want to work with guys. You know what? What they’ve seen of me is me playing a quiet, calm game, and this time I’m going to come guns blazing. I do have real relationships with a couple of these people who are my really good friends, so we’re going to see how that goes. I’m really going to work on my social game that I had last time that came super-natural to me, and I love obviously making friends, but I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in my entire life. I don’t know what it’s going to be and when it’s going to happen, but when that opportunity comes, I’m not going to hesitate to jump. We asked the Blue Collar barrel racer about her race to Fiji. After San Juan del Sur champ Natalie Anderson backed out at the last minute, Sierra was tracked down at a rodeo to rush out to Fiji and fill the 20th and final spot. But I’m here and I’m ready to play. I went out and I did the finals and got the vaccinations and did everything it entailed, and then I got a phone call that they weren’t going to use me, that I was an alternative —   so keep living my summer, but be ready. I wish it bothered me that there was another Sierra/Ciera, but it doesn’t. Show Full Article (Also make sure to follow @thedaltonross on Instagram to see exclusive on-location photos, including one of Sierra casting her pre-game vote for whom she’d like to vote off first.)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Okay, Sierra. What’s going to be different this time? How annoying is it to have another Sierra/Ciera this season? It’s changed since being out here at Ponderosa. I think I’m going to be a strong competitor in all of the challenges. Do relationships outside the game carry into the game? RELATED: Meet the cast of   Survivor: Game Changers
How do you think the other players size you up? But I’m also willing to do something really big. So I went on living my summer.

Larry Wilmore tells Milo Yiannopoulos ‘go f— yourself’ on ‘Real Time’

While   Milo Yiannopoulos’ one-on-one interview with Bill Maher might have been surprisingly cordial on HBO’s Real Time Friday night, the Breitbart   editor’s appearance on Maher’s panel discussion segment of the program was much more heated — particularly with comedian Larry Wilmore. “They’re so stupid… You should start inviting high-IQ guests.”
“You can go f— yourself, all right?” Wilmore shot back to the roar of the audience. “And Leslie Jones is not barely literate, go f— yourself again for that.”

Milo Yiannopoulos spars with Bill Maher, attacks female comics

During the Friday night interview,   Maher brought up the Jones incident and Yiannopoulos doubled down on his hateful rhetoric against the SNL   star. And I simply don’t accept that the star of a Hollywood blockbuster is sitting in a Hollywood mansion crying over mean words on the Internet — get over it. “There are so many other people.”
“I hurt people for a reason,” Yiannopoulos said. Not because normally it’s not there but because that’s how we build bridges   and not how we break them.”
Yet   Yiannopoulos made blatant   sexist comments during the interview, criticizing Amy Schumer and Sarah Silverman as people who “used to be funny before they contracted feminism.”
“You’re   literally the only good [liberal],” Yiannopoulos added, before slamming   Girls   creator and star Lena Dunham as the poster woman for the Democratic party’s issues. “The reason [liberals] want to police humor is they can’t control it — because the one thing all authoritarians   hate is the sound of laughter,”   Yiannopoulos said. The fact that they all freaked out about an impish, British f–. “That silly man who had a hissy fit,” Yiannopoulos called him. Maher countered that some people would say that   Yiannopoulos has inspired real-life violence with his messaging. “I read a bad review of the movie. Mean words on the Internet don’t hurt anyone,” he said. “And also because   when people laugh they know it’s true,” Maher agreed. The liberal talk show host and   conservative Breitbart   editor tried to find common ground during an 11-minute discussion, which made national headlines earlier this week after a previously scheduled Real Time guest (The Intercept co-founder Jeremy Scahill) dropped out of the show to protest   Yiannopoulos’ booking. Earlier this month, a planned speech by Yiannopoulos at the University of California, Berkeley was canceled a couple of hours before the event “out of concern for public safety.”
 

Show Full Article I said she’s barely literate, she is. You schoolgirls.”
In the end, Maher got the last word: “You should get off the Trump train. “Well then they would be idiots,” he replied, and at one point said to the Real Time audience,   “You’re very easily triggered it’s pathetic.”
Yiannopoulos also took aim   Scahill for canceling on Maher. “… You are so helped by the fact that liberals always take the bait.”
“Nothing annoys people like the truth,”   Yiannopoulos concurred. I said she look like a dude, she does. “The Democrats are the party of Lena Dunham. “If you don’t show up to debate, you lose.”
He added, “Stop taking the bait, liberals. “I like to think of myself as a virtuous   troll.”
Yiannopoulos’ trolling made national headlines last year   after he was barred from Twitter for attacking Ghostbusters   star Leslie Jones. These people are mental, hideous people, and the more that America sees of Lena Dunham, the fewer votes that the Democratic Party is going to get.”
“Let’s not pick on fellow HBO stars,” Maher replied, drawing laughs. “Policing   humor for racism and sexism is utterly wrongheaded. Bill Maher and   Milo Yiannopoulos had their controversial showdown on HBO’s Real Time on Friday night, though there were fewer sparks than some had perhaps expected. For a guy who loves free speech, you picked a weird boyfriend.”
Yiannopoulos’ booking on the HBO weekly talk show to promote his upcoming book,   Dangerous, was considered controversial given his views which many consider sexist and racist.

Stephen Colbert believes Putin is the reason Trump is already on campaign trail

Show Full Article When discussing why the rally is happening, the host posited,   “Trump can’t enjoy being president because the buzzkills in our intelligence agencies keep leaking that Vladimir Putin might be the real president.”
Colbert goes on to explain that, to clean up the leaks, Trump is bringing in a New York billionaire named Stephen Feinberg, with the host joking that it’s   “surprising that there is a billionaire that wasn’t already in Trump’s   cabinet.”
See the preview below, where Colbert also makes sure to point out the name of Feinberg’s company. Tonight! Less than a month into his presidency, Donald Trump will hold a campaign rally on Saturday in Orlando, Fla.

Show Full Article Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and horror maestro Stephen King both shared posts on social media on Friday night teasing a new Hulu project called Castle Rock. J.J. The fictional Maine town Castle Rock should sound familiar to King readers as it has been the setting for books like Cujo and Needful Things. But the teaser features lines from several of King’s other works as well as character names (Annie Wilkes from Misery; Danny Torrance from The Shining) and locations (the store from Things; Shawshank State Prison from The Shawshank Redemption). Hulu isn’t talking but we are very ready to visit Castle Rock. Could this be a series where all of King’s iconic tales interact? The pair previously collaborated on the streaming service’s series 11.22.63. What is Castle Rock? Soon. pic.twitter.com/8NUboaLenj

James Earl Jones and Donald Glover join Jon Favreau’s Lion King.

There is   currently no release date set for “The Lion King.” Update: And the Disney news just keeps coming. Truly, could anyone else fill that part? Donald Glover continues his reign as Hollywood’s hottest hire, as it appears he will soon become the King of the Jungle, Simba, in Disney’s latest live-action adaptation. Latest updates Director Jon Favreau, who successfully brought “The Jungle Book” to life   with voice actors such as   Bill Murray, Idris Elba, and Scarlett Johansson, has moved onto his next big Disney project, “The Lion King.” And it looks like he has found his lead Simba. The actor took home multiple Golden Globes   for the “Atlanta” series (on which he is an executive producer, writer and actor), he has been cast in the “Star Wars” origin movie about Han Solo   as Lando Calrissian, and now he’s going to star in a big-budget Disney flick. Tweeting from his personal account , Favreau released an image of Glover with the caption “I just can’t wait to be king. James Earl Jones, will reprise his role as the voice of Mufasa. Shortly after this tweet Favreau announced yet another cast member for his “Lion King” and this one already has experience playing a king. Donald Glover is so hot right now. #Simba.” While we can’t be sure if this means Glover will be voicing the character or participating in a motion   capture type performance, we do know this.

Merriam-Webster reports ‘anti-Semitism’ lookups spiked after Trump mention

Number two, racism, the least racist person. After Trump’s inauguration last month, the word “carnage” — which Trump mentioned in his speech — trended on the website. I hate even the question because people that know me and you heard the [Israel] prime minister, you heard Ben Netanyahu yesterday, did you hear him, Bibi? Other words currently trending on Merriam-Webster’s site right now include “ruse,” “corroborate, dossier & salacious,” “l’etat c’est moi” and “tergiversation.”

Show Full Article Searches on Merriam-Webster for the word “anti-Semitism” spiked this week   after President Donald Trump was asked during his Thursday press conference about an “uptick in anti-Semitism and how the government is planning to take care of it.”
In response to the query from an Ami Magazine reporter about a rise in bomb threats to Jewish community centers, Trump said, “Number one, I am the least anti-Semitic person that you’ve ever seen in your entire life. In fact, we did very well relative to other people running as a Republican … But let me just tell you something, that I hate the charge, I find it repulsive. He said, I’ve known Donald Trump for a long time and then he said, forget it.” (The reporter,   Jake Turx,   did not accuse Trump of being anti-Semitic; Trump’s daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner are Jewish.)
As defined by the dictionary, anti-Semitism is “hostility toward or discrimination against Jews as a religious, ethnic, or racial group.”
This isn’t the first time the President of the United States or a member of his staff has caused a word to trend in Merriam-Websters lookups.
