A highlight from GMA Breaks Up with T.J and Amy

"Gamble advice for sugar and spice it's only been nice. And welcome to the naughty but Nisha, I'm your host. Rob shooter and it's Monday, which means the idea friend Garrett handsome sexy vogels. We're first. Let's jump into the show what time is it, my Friends? It is. Rob shooter. Tit is tea time. I'm it is, it is a big story at the top of the show. Over the weekend, Amy roback and TJ Holmes were fired, were let go, exited GMA. Well, we've already spotted them in Los Angeles and they are kissing kissing kissing. So hours after it was announced that they would not be returning to GMA three, the co anchors were or should I say the former co hangers were seen holding hands and hugging and at one point she even had her legs wrapped around him. It looked like she ran up to him and jumped into his arms. He had a huge smile now all this was captured by the photographer, some people think that is maybe not a coincidence, but the big news is they are out at GMA. They did return after the scandal broke, just for one day, but then it became clear that this was not going to work and now the company put out a statement saying, quote, after several productive conversations, I don't know, with Amy and TJ about different options, we all agreed we all agree that's the key word there that it's best for everybody that they move on from ABC News and we recognize their talents and their commitments and thankful for their contributions. What do you think? That sounds like a very well produced statement that they thought about before hitting send to release to the public rob shooter, right? I mean, we talked about this last week how it just seems like where is this where is their relationship going? Their relationship seems like the only thing that they're known for now is just making out in public and being fired from GMA. But let me ask you about this too, like the optics of it. So this came out on a Friday afternoon pretty much after the news cycle is pretty much coming to an end. Was this meant to be, was this meant to come out the way it did? Yes, it was all carefully carefully planned. The only thing that came out the way it wasn't was this relationship being announced in the daily mail. These two try to keep it under wraps. Let's remember they didn't tell their bosses the daily mail did, so it's very complicated, isn't it? Because you think two consenting adults, they can have a relationship, but you got to remember when you work for an organization, particularly ABC News, you do sign all these clauses and now they're trying to throw everything to aiming, including an accusation that she had liquor in her office, which is sort of laughable because a lot of people in media may be even you Garrett gets sent bottles of liquor at the holidays or maybe a birthday. I know a lot of people who have liquor in their offices, but it's sealed, it's not opened, it's a bottle of champagne. And get this, it was actually sent to her by the boss. The bosses, the executives, said to that champagne that they say, the 5 four. I think picking at people, if you really want to get some rid of somebody, let's be honest. You can always find a way. If you look around your office, everybody's made a mistake. And even around your office, you work for yourself like I'm sure you could find stuff on yourself to fire yourself. Absolutely. I've been wearing Travis right now. So that would be a fireball event. Shorts, too. I'd like to complain about myself to myself, please. What would be your complaint about you, Garrett, if you had to play about me? I would say, you know, maybe a tad bit smelly from time to time. Oh, a little smelly. Mine would be, I can send myself quite a vicious text. It sounds weird, but I understand what you're saying. You know what I mean? I can come across a little harsh on the old E bail, so they are out they are, it brings us to our poll question of the day. Amy and TJ are out at GMA. Now, what do you think will they last now as a couple? As you said, Garrett, their job now is being this couple and been photographed around tan, it feels like they're on the bachelor or the bachelor. Exactly. So where do they go though? Will they last and it's the question that you asked today, but do they do they turn to network news kind of like how CNBC has those two every morning and do they get hired by Fox News maybe? Yeah, it's tricky isn't it because let's remember Amy did not leave NBC. She used to be on The Today Show. So I don't think NBC has taken her back. I don't think they split on particularly good terms. ABC is not taken aback, so the only place that's left is CBS. I think NBC does swoop in just because, you know, we see these network battles and what is more scandalous than hiring the two people that were fired for being romantically involved and throwing them in their same spot, but on a different network. Let me give you a little bit of exclusive here. I know you love that on this show. I'm told that in order for them to sign their paperwork and get their lump sum, they're going to get a lot of money. They're both going to make millions here. They're not going to make megyn Kelly 60 million type money, but they are going to make a lot of money. In order to get that money, they've got to sign a non compete. So they're not going to be able to work for another network for two years. Two years is a really long time in TV and you can quickly be forgotten. So I think the next thing for these two, it's not going to be a fancy new job. I'm told that they're going to get engaged very soon. They did not blow up their careers to have a little romance. These two were getting engaged. Engaged, married, that takes and that brings them up to the end of their non compete in the reality show. They'll get the reality show the babies. Literally, they'll do one season of a reality show, I think, rob shooter, and then they'll be back on some type of these nations with Chris Cuomo. There, you heard it here first. Hey, we want to know what you think. Go vote. Will they last go to our Twitter page at 99 by Facebook page is naughty yosi and be sure to check back to Monroe. Garret you've got some more couples news. What are you working on? All right, well, you know, I kind of love this, but I just don't know for the right reasons. Olivia Wilde, Jason Sudeikis, they are back together. Well, not back together, but they were seen together months after the whole big nanny drama Harry Styles. Jason Sudeikis allegedly sitting in front of a car laying down in front of a car because Olivia wanted to bring her salad dressing over to Harry Styles. I mean, but at the end of the day, Olivia Wilde, Jason Sudeikis, they do share children together. So I'm sure they were kind of doing maybe a swap of sorts of changing off kids, but they did hug it out a little bit. There's a lot of more to appeal with this too. So Olivia Wilde, as we know, romance with Harry Styles did not work out. Her movie, don't worry, darling. A lot of drama behind it, but also didn't get recognized a lot or at all by the Oscars, which there was a lot of buzz there. And then on the other side of it, Jason Sudeikis, loving life right now, just getting done shooting season three of Ted Lasso, everybody wanting a little bit of Jason Sudeikis a little bit more. Do you see this couple getting back together? Possibly, I think.

A highlight from Kazuo Ishiguro - 'Living'

"Titles were adapted by others into highly acclaimed films. In recognition of ishiguro's collective body of work, he was chosen as the recipient of the Nobel Prize in Literature for 2017, just a year after one of his heroes, Bob Dylan was tapped for the same honor, making him only its 29th recipient for work in the English language. His Nobel citation declared that he quote in novels of great emotional force has uncovered the abyss beneath our illusory sense of connection with the world. The New York Times, meanwhile, has called him a blue chip literary stock, one of the most acclaimed and influential British writers of his generation, and a writer who takes enormous gambles, then uses his superior gifts to manage the risk as tightly as possible. While also heralding, his pared down Pinterest prose, his masterful narrative control, and his virtuosic use of understatement and collision. And the Los Angeles Times has described him as that rarest of creatures, a literary craftsman who also sells books. While asserting that few writers who've ever lived have been able to create moods of transience, loss, and existential self doubt, as ishiguro has. A contemporary of Martin amis Ian mcewan and Salman Rushdie, who is the favorite working writer of many of his peers, including haruki murakami, ishiguro was also the recipient of the Order of the British Empire in 1990, the French order of arts and letters in 1998. The library Lion medal from the New York public library in 2014, and a British knighthood for services to literature in 2018. Over the course of our conversation, the 68 year old and I discussed his journey from Japan to England and from songwriting to fiction writing, what inspired his best known novels, and why he thinks he is so often written characters who deceive themselves and repress their emotions from the butler Stevens and the remains of the day, throw the bureaucrat Williams in living. Why he was so impacted by ikiru as a boy and so excited to adapt it as a man and why he now says of his completed script that he's as proud of this as anything I've ever done, plus much more. And so without further ado, let's go to that conversation. I'm gonna search you girl, thank you so much for coming on the podcast again, honored to have you with us. And on this podcast, we always begin with sort of the same question asking our guests where he or she was born and raised in what their folks did for a living, but in your case, I think it's maybe more related to the things that have followed and your work than most. Can you share if anyone's living under a rock who's listening just your story of where you're from and how you came to live where you live? Yeah, I'm sure most people don't know actually. No, I was born in Nagasaki, Japan in 1954. And I'd spent the first 5 years of my life there in a very traditional kind of Japanese setup because it was my grandfather's home, my grandfather had lived in Shanghai, a lot of his life. And so when he returned to Japan, he wanted it to be more Japanese than the Japanese. So it was like a throwback Japanese existence. You know, like straight out of an early 1930s Ozzie a movie. It was exactly like that. My father was a scientist. He worked a little while in the United States and in Britain and so when I was 5, he was asked to do some research with a British government and we all moved to the United Kingdom to England and the idea was that the family that's to say my parents myself and my sister, we would live in England for maybe a year or two years while he was doing this research. But we never went back. And my parents live their entire lives in Britain as I have done. And so that was a kind of a strange situation. We weren't we never adopted the attitude of migrants.

A highlight from What is With the Accent?

"Dear friend Garrett Vogel is joining us. Hey Gary, you know rob shooter I am back from holiday and you know what? It was weird. It was weird. I don't know. I feel like we're on a first date all over again, you know? We're back together. It wasn't like I loved all the rumors though. The rumors like, hey, did Robin get into a fight? Did da Garrett offend rob with his take on the British family? I mean, so many things. But I will be honest with you, rob shooter. I am a little I am pissed at the royals because it seems like every time I just feel like you and I get into a groove, the royals come on like the hot new thing, the hot girlfriend and take you away from me because you are so busy in the world. It wants a piece of the royals via you. It's been in this batch for a couple of weeks. With vacations and with scheduling, doing royals, we tape these shows for full disclosure, quite early in the mornings, which happens to be the same time. As morning TV are getting ready to start their show. So when I'm doing morning TV, which I love to do and I've got to admit, it really helps the podcast. I love when I go on this very good at it. You're very good at this. We have to do them, but it's been a little bit tricky, but we are back together, my friend, hey, what time is it? It is. Okay, this story is wild, so Boston born, hilaria Baldwin, who some people call Hillary Baldwin is getting slammed for using a fake Spanish accent when talking to reporters, so everything we know is going on with Alec Baldwin, we've spoken about this. He now is going to be charged with manslaughter. So lots of interest in Alec, there are reporters. There are photographers, camped outside, his apartment, we all know where he lives. He lives in the village. I'm not going to give out his address, but it's pretty easy to figure it out. Reporters know where he's been for years. Hilaria came out of the apartment, lots of photographers and seems to have done a mini press conference outside. Now the press conference Garrett was to tell reporters that she wasn't going to talk, but she actually said that. She didn't hand out a note saying with her hand over her mouth saying I'm not speaking. So she did this press conference to really announce she's not going to talk, but while she was doing that, Alex slipped out of the building. So it's quite clever. So Alec might have used her a little bit of a little bit of trick. Is her at rager Spanish accent. Now, if you remember, we all thought hilaria was from Spain. That's what Alex seemed to have implied that it turned out a few of her classmates. Remembered her from Boston and came forward and said she's Hillary from Boston and we sat next to her in class and we don't know where all this Spanish stuff came from. And we parked the car and Harvard yacht and had some Kathy at Duncan. With Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. That's what she really sad to look. I think. Like, I mean, let's be honest. I mean, the whole thing, first off. You and I have noticed over the years, if you want to do celebrity right, you move out of the main cities. You know what I mean? Matt Damon did it when he wanted to get out of Hollywood and you don't see Matt Damon, only when he wants to promote a movie because he's in Miami. We're going to talk about Ryan Reynolds in a little bit, but Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively. They went up to Westchester, you know, like the celebrities went, you don't see paparazzi in Montana where most of Hollywood is. So Alec Alec and hilaria or hilarious or however you want to say it at this point. We don't know who she is. So how dare we even try to say our name? They ask for it. You know what I mean? It does feel like he was spotted little later on in the afternoon smiling in midtown. So they are out and about plus two. I just don't believe these multi millionaires who live I think in a 16 $17 million apartment have to do a coffee run every morning. Do they not have a percolator, a coffee machine? They have 15 kids to send out to go get coffee. In fact, goodness you're a parent. You can say that. I don't think I could get away with saying that. But she's going to everybody also to just so that people know how I think she is enjoying the spotlight. She's now wearing t-shirts or jumper sweaters with words on them, empathy, human. It's a lot. It is, but it's almost misguided. You know what I mean? Empathy for someone who said, I didn't fire a gun when you clearly fired a gun, given you didn't mean to kill anybody, but you killed somebody, so like the empathy almost should be like look in a mirror. You know what I mean? Someone died. I put her name on my teeth. I wouldn't do that. I don't do any of it. And don't do it. And even if it's coming from a good place, say hilaria, Hillary, is really and it's so difficult. I don't know what to say. Do you think she's Hillary? She's Hillary in Boston and then she became hilarious. I guess you can change it. A hundred rob shooter, you couldn't have been more correct on anything else than you've ever said before. That is so true. She goes, you know how you go home. All right, Hillary. During Christmas break or Thanksgiving. And you see all your Friends and you're like, oh, what are you doing? Oh, well, you know, I'm just a lavish star back home. But it's like we know who you are. You know who you was like with J.Lo goes to the home to a family in The Bronx. Jennifer, shut up, sit down. And so I think there's still Hilary Boston, but even if she's doing this for the right reasons, even if she's doing this to protect her husband and I know my goodness, if my husband was in the press all the time and getting beat up, even if he had done something terrible, I'd want to scream and shout, but I think she's doing an Alec a disservice here. I think that he was better off served if they all shut up. Just don't say anything. And that interview, Alec did with George Stephanopoulos, could come to bite him in the bottom, because now this trial is going to happen and he has spoken about this case to George. It was in that interview with George that he said he didn't fire the gun, the FBI has now said, that's not right. There's no way the gun could have fired itself. So I think a lot of this is not going to help in the long run, but we want to know what you think it brings us to our poll of the day, Boston born. Hilarious Hillary Baldwin has been slammed for using her. Fake accent, particularly to deflect, reporters. Do you think she speaks like that in private? And she is when she's Herman closes the door. We all lower our ass and graces a little bit. Even rob schutte is not quite this British and no, I actually English. Ladies and gentlemen, if you're listening right now. I am going to do the great and powerful Oz right now. Rob shooter is a 100% American.

So we were there and I don't remember how long we stayed, but he proposed on the 4th of July. We did our whole family thing on the 4th of July. We were there for probably a few days.

A highlight from S.S. Rajamouli - 'RRR'

"Everyone and thank you for tuning in to the 474th episode of awards chatter, The Hollywood Reporter's awards podcast. I'm the host Scott feinberg, THR's executive editor of awards coverage. And my guest today is a filmmaker from India who's consistent track record of massive critical and commercial success in Telugu language cinema might lead one to call him the James Cameron of tollywood. Described by The New Yorker as an artist of distinctive temperament and talent by The New York Times as a filmmaker with a knack for maximalist action and imaginative set pieces, many of which are built around dynamic special effects on choreography, and by the Los Angeles Times, as a master of spectacle, and one of his country's preeminent powerhouse filmmakers, he is the winner of three national film awards. India's equivalent of Oscars and is the highest paid director in India, not least because three of his films are among the 5 highest grossing in the history of Indian cinema. Each of which, when made, was also the most expensive Indian film ever. 2015s bahubali, the beginning, 2017s bahubali two, the conclusion, and 2022s. I'm talking, of course, about SS Raja mooli. RRR Raja moli's 12th feature is a period piece musical action romantic thriller that is his biggest international success yet. On a budget of $72 million, it has raked in $175 million from box offices around the world. Making it the third highest grossing film of all time in India and the fourth highest grossing Indian film around the world. And it has reached untold numbers of additional people via Netflix, resulting in the likes of the Russo brothers, James Gunn, Sam Raimi, and Jason Blum, becoming vocal fans of the film, and it show stopping not to not to song and dance number. U.S. based awards groups have also embraced it to a greater extent than any other Indian film ever. The National Board of Review chose it as one of 2022s top ten films. The Los Angeles film critics awarded it best music slash score, while the New York Film Critics Circle selected Raja mouly as

A highlight from Michelle Williams - 'The Fabelmans'

"By the sea, and 2017s The Greatest Showman. On Broadway in 2014s cabaret and 2016s blackbird. And on TV in the 2019 limited series, Fosse verdon. I'm talking, of course, about Michelle Williams. In 2002, William shined as brightly as ever in Steven Spielberg's autobiographical film, the fable men's, playing mitzi fable men, a thinly disguised version of Spielberg's own mother, the late Leah Adler, opposite Paul Dano, Seth Rogen, and Gabriel Labelle. Spielberg has said that her performance made him feel like he had his mother back again. And as someone who had the pleasure of meeting his mother at the Milky Way, the west LA kosher restaurant that she ran in her later years, I can totally see why. Williams nails Adler's physical appearance, manner of speaking, and unmistakable joie de vivre. And this season, Williams has already received a special tribute at the Gotham awards and was nominated for the best actress in a drama Golden Globe Award. And she is nominated for the best actress critics choice award with the best actress Oscar nomination likely to follow. Over the course of our conversation at the hotel Bel Air, the 42 year old and I discussed the pros and cons of her years as a child actor, emancipated from her parents, the period of grief that she experienced, following sudden death of Heath Ledger, her costar in Brokeback Mountain and the father of her oldest child in 2008, and the degree to which it made her consider walking away from acting, what led her to pursue naturalism in her early performances, but more recently to embrace expressionistic work, why she had a harder time saying goodbye to her character from the fable moons than any other that she has played, plus much more. And so without further ado, let's go to that conversation. Michelle, thank you so much for doing this. Really appreciate it. Pleasure, thanks for having me. Of course, always begin on this podcast with the very basics. Can you share where you were born and raised and what your folks did for a living? I was born in callous Bel Montana. My mother is a homemaker and my father treated the commodities markets. Okay. So you were popping up on TV on things like Baywatch. I saw it 13. My first job. First job, lassie, 14. This is all obviously pre Dawson's creek. So I guess just to set the stage like what first even appeal to you about acting? Do you remember? You know, the first experience that I had thinking, what is this? What are these people doing? I would like to go live with them was when I saw my first play and I was a children's theater production of, gosh, now actually I can't even remember if it was Tom Sawyer, Annie, one or the other. And I remember gripping onto the sides of my seat because it felt like it was going to take off. I was so thrilled to see these people performing in front of me for me, up on a stage. And it really stuck with me. And then at some point, we were living in San Diego, then. And there was a wave of kids that would leave school, get in minivans and go up to Los Angeles for cattle calls. I don't know if they still use that term now, probably not. And somehow I became one of them. I don't really know how or why I didn't have a burning passion. I wasn't identified as being talented. I just became one of those kids in the back seat of a minivan. And this is like oakwood apartments during pilot season or what are we talking about? No, this is still living in San Diego and being pulled out of school to drive two and a half hours for a fritos commercial audition, going to the mall, getting some cookies and driving back home. And that to you at that time felt exciting or a duty or how would you describe the cookies were so delicious? Made it worth it. Every time I drive past the galleria in Sherman oaks, my mouth kind of waters for these mini cookies that came in a paper bag. Got it. Well, so what led to the decision, which you've talked about often, I guess at 15, I'm going to get legally emancipated from my parents so that you can focus on doing this now seriously or unrelated reasons or just that's a big decision for a 15 year old. I've never been the kind of person who really thinks decisions through. I kind of I kind of leap and then find out midair where I'm going to land. It was, again, there were other children that were making this decision, although it is kind of a decision that you have to make with your family. So there's a lot of factors that go into deciding whether a child can be emancipated or not. It was posed as an option because it encouraged people to hire you because they no longer had to pay for a welfare worker, a tutor, and you could work full adult hours. Had a very young age. I wouldn't, this is not a recommendation. Or emancipating your children. Well, so in hindsight, was it the right decision to make? Now it is because it turned out okay and here I am sitting across from you talking about a very long career, but certainly at moments along the way it was not the right decision.

A highlight from Stephanie Hsu - 'Everything Everywhere All at Once'

"Most recently, in 2022, she made her feature film debut opposite Michelle Yeoh and kihei Kwan playing joy. The queer American daughter of Chinese immigrants who desperately wants her mother to accept her for who she is, and who, in some alternate universes, is a nihilistic chaos agent named jobu taki, it'll make more sense once you see the movie, in Daniel Kwan and Daniel scheiner, everything everywhere all at once, which is now the highest grossing film in the history of a 24, and is a major Oscar contender, not least for her in the category of best supporting actress. Indeed, shoe has already been nominated for the equivalent critics choice award, as well as the best breakthrough performance, Spirit Award, and an Oscar nomination seems likely to follow. Over the course of an emotional conversation at the offices of The Hollywood Reporter, shoe and I discuss what it was like growing up in real life as the queer American daughter of an immigrant who didn't exactly encourage her acting ambitions. How her own imagination of what her career could look like had definite limits and how those limits, which may have actually been defense mechanisms, have been shattered, time and again, the crazy series of events that led to her and the Daniels meeting and eventually working together on everything everywhere and what it's been like having her career and everything everywhere be so warmly embraced at a time when anti Asian hate is simultaneously surging across America, plus much more. In case you couldn't already tell, I'm a big fan of shoes and a big believer in her future. And I came away from our conversation just as impressed with her as a person, as I am with her as an actress. And so without further ado, let's go to that conversation. Stephanie, thank you so much for coming on the podcast, happy new year. Happy new year. So on this one, we always begin truly at the beginning. Can you tell us where you were born and raised in what your folks did for a living? Oh. I was born in Torrance, California, raised in the south bay. And my parents probably don't want me to announce what they did. So they were in the mafia. Asians are very pregnant. Small respect their privacy. Fair enough. And they made me sign an NDA at birth. That's fair enough. Now, from what I read, your mom is from Taiwan, came to the U.S. at whatever. Point in her life just because looking at obvious parallels, perhaps between your movie and your life. Yeah, totally. There are so many parallels. My mom, she was sent over basically my great grandmother. It's actually kind of cool, my great grandmother had 13 kids in Asia and Taiwan. And my grandmother was the oldest, and then one uncle, one of my uncles got a green card, and then just basically started plucking everyone over. And my mom was sent over when she was in high school or right about to start high school. She was sent to Chicago outside of Chicago to live with my aunt for a better education. And then she ended up getting into UCLA, paid her way through CLA, and kind of settled in Southern California with a lot of other relatives. But yeah, she has a true, a pretty, true immigrant experience of coming to America. So I'm technically first or second generation, depending on who you ask. All right. Now, how early on did you first display even just an interest in people who act or acting because I believe it, again, maybe there are some parallels between what a parent can see for the child and what the child we can see for themselves based on things you've said about that moment. Yeah, totally. I was a pretty expressive, young kid. My mom tells this story of my mom tells the story of how she got pulled over for speeding, and I was a kid, and it was in the summertime. And the cops like giving my mom a ticket. And then I said to him, like, peeked out over the window, and I said, Merry Christmas. 'cause I thought that was a thing that would make people happy. Did she get out of the ticket? No. No she did.

"Been described by esquire as a pillar of punk rock's birth, and the biggest act to emerge from first wave punk. By Rolling Stone as the band that shattered the new wave stigma of non commercialism and CBGB's greatest success story, and by The Guardian as one of the most influential bands of the past century. While the Los Angeles Times called it one of the most successful and trend setting bands of all time and noted that alone among the CBGB born bends, it had hits. Indeed, four of blondie's tunes hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Two of them disco, heart of glass and call me, one reggae, the tide is high, and one hip hop rap. Rapture. And the band has sold upwards of 40 million records, making it in the estimation of The New York Times, the punk era's bestselling group, with a sound attitude looking aesthetic that proved inspirational to generations of artists across a spectrum of genres. Though blondie has somehow only received two Grammy nominations over the years for best rock performance by a duo or group with vocal for call me in 1981 and best video of the year for eat to the beat in 1982, its work has certainly withstood the test of time. Indeed, it claimed two spots on Rolling Stone's 2020 list of the greatest albums of all time. Number 146 for parallel lines and number 401 for blondie, and two spots on Rolling Stone's 2021 list of the greatest songs of all time. Number 138 for heart of glass and number 414 for dreaming. Meanwhile, in 2015, heart of glass was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame as a recording of qualitative or historical significance. And in 2006, the band itself was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Harry, in particular, is now seen as a trailblazer. With what The New York Times has described as her haunted haunting voice and what Vanity Fair has called the face that became the flashy hood ornament for new wave rock in the late 70s, she changed the game. Playboy has argued that her innovations made the bangles and Cyndi Lauper and Madonna, and even Tina Turner, commercial propositions, The Hollywood Reporter has suggested that she paved the way for everyone from Lady Gaga and Katy Perry to no doubt an indie pop stars and MTV has asserted that with her iconic snarl, she took 60s pop music's rendering of feminine desire and gave it punk's teeth. Before Madonna arrives sexually around on video before Cindy lopper led a conga line of girls into empowerment before pat benatar asked listeners to hit her with their best shot, Debbie Harry was paving the way for those women and for future stars whose wit and sarcasm have a place in mainstream music. Over the course of our conversation, Harry, who is now 77 and Stein, who's now 72, reflected on the fateful way in which they came together. The creation of blondie's biggest hits, and the fact that some 40 years after blondie broke up, a development that the Los Angeles Times is legendary music critic Robert hilburn called one of the most dramatic pop disappearances since John Lennon's house husband period. The band is not only still making music together, but is also being celebrated with an incredible new super deluxe collector's edition box set called blondie against the odds 1974 to 1982, which chronicles the band's initial 8 year run with all 6 of its studio albums from that era, remastered from the original analog tapes and cut at Abbey Road studios, 36 previously unissued recordings, hundreds of pages of liner notes, dozens of previously unpublished photos, and illustrated discography and much more. It is currently nominated for the best historical album Grammy that will be presented on February 5th, 2023. And so, without further ado, let's go to that conversation. Debbie and Chris, thank you so much for joining us on The Hollywood Reporter's podcast. It's an honor to speak with you. I'm such a fan. And congratulations on this new box set, which is incredible. I've never seen anything like it. I think it weighs more than most people I know. I mean, what do you guys well, we're going to come actually will come to that chronologically if that's all right with you. But to begin with on this podcast, we always just kind of go chronologically. So can I ask you each starting with Debbie? Where were you born and raised and what did your folks do for a living? I was born in Florida, Miami, Florida, and I grew up in outside of Patterson, New Jersey. And my dad was a salesman and my mother was a housewife for the most part. And then occasionally she did clerical work. Thank you. And Chris. I was born in Manhattan in Harlem hospital, which is at the time was called Sloan hospital for women, and I grew up in Brooklyn. And my parents were reds, my mom was an artist and my dad was a frustrated writer, but he was actually a salesman. Well, prepping for this, I've learned just so many interesting things about you. And Chris, I want to ask about your childhood first because I see that on the one hand, you're expelled from high school, but on the other hand, by 17, you're opening for The Velvet Underground. So what was going on? Yeah, yeah. Well, no, I mean, so the fucking dean in, I guess it was 1965 or so, rounded up the few of us who had long hair at the time. And this is in Brooklyn. Midwood high school where Woody Allen was alumni, actually. And a bunch of sports people and I don't know. And the dean rounded us up and said, listen, you guys have to get haircuts because you're going to be crossing the street and your hair is going to blow in front of your eyes and you're going to get hit by a car. And he really fucking said that. But I was kicked out of I was really kind of happy to leave. I was liberating because they hated high school. And but at the time, it was also the period where there was a lot of civil rights things going forward. People were, you know, there were a lot of legal actions about people getting thrown out for having long hair. So the school kind of tried to get in front of it and they called me up and somebody even spoke to me and not my mom and somebody, somebody from the school said, you can come back, you won't have to take Jim. That was. Terrible. Incentive. But I was happy to get out and my mom found a really cheap private school in Manhattan. So they finished there. But I mean, to be at 17 part of a band that's opening for the Velvet Underground must have been well, I was just being my Friends. I grew up with known for 50 years, Joey Freeman was working for Andy, he is just another whole long story. I have a memoir coming out. I'm excited I saw that. I'm very excited. Next year. Hopefully. So all this stuff will be in there. But this guy knew for a really long time, worked for the factory work for Andy very early on. And he just showed up at my place in Brooklyn. We were always jamming in the basement and stuff being my buddies. And he showed up and he said, listen, the opening act for the velvets didn't show up to you guys want to do it, so of course we want to do it because we were big fans of the developments. 1967, we went uptown to this place called the gymnasium where there's actually recordings of them because they were in there for months. Rehearsing and.

A highlight from James Gray - 'Armageddon Time'

"Hi everyone, and thank you for tuning in to the 469th episode of The Hollywood Reporter's awards chatter podcast. I'm the host, Scott feinberg, and my guest today is a New York born LA based filmmaker who has been described by the Los Angeles Times as a director who has uncommonly carved a career on his own terms. By The New York Times, as an accidental maverick, an unrepentant traditionalist in a business that prizes newness and schtick. And by the French newspaper le monde, as one of the great American directors of our time. He has written or co written and directed 8 feature films over the last 28 years. 1990 fours little Odessa, 2000s the yards, 2007s we on the night, 2008s two lovers, 2013s, the immigrant, 2016s the lost city of Z 2019s ad Astra, and this year's Armageddon time. All of which had their world premiere at one of the world's elite film festivals, 5 at Cannes, two at Venice, and one at New York. I'm talking, of course, about James gray. Over the course of our conversation at his home in Los Angeles, the 53 year old and I discussed the turmoil that was going on at home in New York as he headed off to LA to attend film school and then at the age of just 23 to make his widely acclaimed first feature, the challenges that he has encountered along the way, both on Indies, including multiple run ins with Harvey Weinstein, and on studio films, including having a film taken away from him, why he has so often returned in his films to New York's outer boroughs and to the subjects of immigration, social class, and his own family, most recently, in Armageddon time, plus much more, and so without further ado, let's go to that conversation. James, thank you so much for joining us on the podcast or having us to you for the podcast. It's great to have you. And I know this first question that we always begin with is largely answered in your movies, but for anyone who may not know where were you born and raised and what did your folks do for a living? Well, first of all, I'm thrilled to be here. I say usually, but here means my guest. So it's okay. I'm from queens, New York, from working class neighborhood called flushing. I used to say, as in the toilet bowl, my father was, he was sort of like, I described him to others as Stanley kowalski with a PhD. He had gotten about 80,000°. He was the son of a plumber, and he himself did a lot of plumbing work. He would fix people's hot water heaters, and then he would, he was able to go into his wife beater and go under the refrigerator and fix your refrigerator and stuff like that. So he did that for a while and sundry other things and my mother was a school teacher and home economics at a high school in bayside queens. No, also related to your films that will come to. I mean, you come from a family of immigrants, not that far back, right? I mean, in fact, both sets of parents had parents from outside of the country. Well, the different is there was a social big class divide between my father's parents and my mother's. For exactly the reason that you just asked me about my father's parents came over, independently of each other. They didn't know each other, but both in the same year 1923, which is very late. Ellis island's doors closed for all intents and purposes in 1924, a Coolidge had put forth some quotas. And Ellis island stayed open for another 30 years, but really as a place for political dissidents and very sparsely populated. The Ellis island that we know about, which is like, you know, The Godfather two Ellis island, which is like packed full of immigrants, of all stripes. That really was only 1900 to 1923. My family got in right before the door slam shut on my father's side. And he was, he spoke no English till the day he died, same thing with my grandmother on my father's side. And they were from Brooklyn. They settled in Brooklyn in bed stuy, and he was a plumber by trade. My grandparents on my mother's side were not from that generation. I think you forget these things. My brother knows the history better than I do, but my mother's parents parents came over and brought them with them in, I think, 1903. So they had a much more they did not speak with any European or I should say thick European acts and my grandfather was a very proper man and actually came in and almost like urbane almost sounded like a deeply or at least to my ear refined English man, you know. And my grandmother had a slight Brooklyn accent or I should say low reside accent, you know, a slight one hello darling, this kind of thing. But for the most part, they were a very different social standing than my father's parents. And a number of them have obviously popped up in films that will bring up, but before we get to that, you have said quote. Uh oh. The most important thing you can communicate as a parent is is the kid wanted and loved. You can make a ton of other mistakes, but as long as that's clear, the kid will probably be all right. My parents didn't really do that, but my grandfather did. And I think you're talking about her mother's my mother's father. He was a beautiful guy. He was a very tender person. He was, like I said, he was a very elegant guy.

"Are you there? Rob shooter, Merry Christmas. You are my Christmas present. How are you? Very well, my friend. You do make me smile. How is jingle ball you were there shaking your jingles and your balls. And the ball and where jingles, you know, it was a great night of music, Madison Square Garden, yeah, you had lizzo dressing up. Lisa, like the Grinch. And she's hosting SNL this weekend, too. That's pretty big. You had someone like Dua Lipa who is, you know, what's interesting watching the turn of superstars, you know? You always have the circle of life of superstars, and she is the top of pride rock right now. At the moment, it's her world. It is her world. I'm so jealous I couldn't make it this year, but I shall live it through you. Let's jump into ash, and we've got a ton of gos. What time is it, my Friends? It is. Tea time. What do you do for a holiday tea? Is it any different than normal? The still the same thing, maybe a little honey. Maybe. Christmas cookie. A Christmas oh, I love to dunk a cookie. I do. And I leave my cookie in for too long so it goes almost falls into the tea. I have to get a spoon and it's horrible to make no tea. Okay, so this story at the top of the show is breaking it's a huge story. So after the docu series now serious people politicians in Britain are saying that Harry and Meghan should not attend King Charles coronation. They're offended, they're offended by all this and get this Garret. We're only three episodes in. The next three episodes are the doozy. The first three episodes were kind of soft. It was like a love story. I don't know if you've seen it yet if you haven't. It's delicious. It's good for a rainy day. It's long. It's too long. It didn't need to be three hours, but it's sort of like this beautiful love story for three hours. The next three hours are gonna be rough, so if politicians military figures even historians in Britain, if they're angry that wait, wait until the end of this week. I remember us talking about like, hey, they own Netflix a show. They haven't been filming anything. And it's almost like, you know, you do, you wait till the last second to do a homework assignment, and then you overdo the homework assignment, just to prove the fact that you did the homework assignment. That's what it felt like. It does feel like that over delivered here. So because of what they said, people in Britain, particularly politicians are saying, quote, they made money out of selling their family down the river. I think it should be made clear that the British people do not want them here and another person added, we certainly would be entitled to boo them if we saw them back in Britain. The Brits are really against this. I spoke to a couple of my British Friends, a few sources over the weekend. Let's just start with my mom. Hello. Hello, hello. So this is the source. He's my royal expert in much boggle, like far, far away from the palace or royal life. She's furious. She won't watch this. She was watching Netflix and she's not so good at pressing the buttons. She accidentally pressed Harry and Meghan. I hate to call your mom a liar. She turned the television off. She won't get back to Netflix. She's so scared of it now in case Harry and Meghan pop up. She was convinced it was pre programmed to pop up on her screen. Yes. Said you pressing the rug. So she won't watch it. The Brits are not that into it and overall the numbers were not great. They were not bad. They're good numbers, but they were not staggering numbers for Netflix. But doesn't it tell anything? I mean, outside of just Britain alone, you know, they're going to watch from afar or watch through third parties. But doesn't it just say like, maybe it might be a little bit overkill, you know what I mean? It's too long. Honestly, I love this stuff, but it's three hours, 6 hours in total. We got another three hours. It's a beautiful love story falling in love they met on Instagram, their first date is also lovely, but it is three hours. So it will probably, I don't know, the next maybe 6 hours it might be mentioned, but the fact that we know the backstory of Meghan was whether on a date or just hanging out with the godawful Piers Morgan before she met Harry and we know that piers put her in an Uber. That's right. Well, now we know they met before then on Instagram. But even so, on their first real meeting, Megan waited 30 minutes for Harry, right? So that means she Harry was like, Harry was late. Harry was like, but still, Meghan probably had more fun waiting in that 30 minutes than she did with Piers Morgan. That's what she did. Does not like Meghan Markle it all goes back to this Uber so she was having drinks with peers and then piers paid for haruba. Bitter, bit of bitter. Now what's interesting too is a lot of criticism about the documentary is saying the couple that wanted privacy. I now doing this massive TV special. How can that be? They have actually responded to that. So their spokesperson said, leaving the royal family had nothing to do with wanting, privacy, they never said that they would disappear that they would go into a private world and never be seen again. That isn't the reason they are leaving the family. Now an Oprah pressed Harry about his motivation, so why did he leave this family? She said was the move about getting away from the UK press and press everywhere or was the move because you didn't get support from the firm, meaning the royal family, Harry said both. So what do you think about this argument? People are saying that they wanted privacy and now they're doing all this publicity. Now they're saying they never said that. But you know what's interesting too because we all have our own stories of, oh, what happens behind the walls and, you know, I heard through this and that we're getting straight from the source now. You know what I mean? That's what my takeaway is of as much as like how gastly how dare they. The one thing that really struck a chord for me was Harry saying, I've seen this story before with my mom. And I've seen how people have treated her. I've seen how what it led to and I wasn't going to go down that road again with my potential soon to be why. Now wife. He makes a great point. He makes a great point. The follow-up to that would be. If you're talking about Princess Diana and I think that's what he's talking about and getting hounded is doing a 6 hour docu series, some people are calling it a reality show they're not. Is that helping? It's difficult. They're really famous. If they were still in the palace, I would say yes, that's a little bit much. Okay, I get it. But they're outside. That's why they left. People want to tell their story. And they people want to tell a story which brings us to what you think of all this our poll of the day. Prince Harry and Meghan should not attend Prince Charles car red nation next year says politicians in Britain do you agree? Yes or no, go vote on our Twitter page and naughty nice rob. A taste for pages already goes here and miss you. To check back tomorrow to hear your results, Garrett, what are you working on? All right, so we've all been in this situation before where we say something and then all of a sudden people jump down our throats like, oh my God, how dare you, you know? You shouldn't have said that or said that like that. Well, Jennifer Lawrence last week is walking back some comments talking about female led action films and she says, you know what? My comments came out wrong, so she was talking to she was doing an interview with variety and said nobody ever put a woman in a lead of an action movie prior to her appearance in The Hunger Games. We all know that is not the case. We have the terminator Tomb Raider. Brown. I mean, we can go on and on. The movie about snow, that's not right. It's

"Hi everyone and thank you for joining us for the 468th episode of The Hollywood Reporter's awards chatter podcast. I'm the host, Scott feinberg, and I am recording this episode in front of an audience of students at Chapman university's Dodge college of film and media arts, where I teach part time. My guest today is a Mexican writer, director, producer, film editor, and composer, who was described by Roger Ebert as unreasonably talented. He has directed 7 feature films over a period of 22 years. 2000s more ace peros, 2003s, 21 grams, 2006s babbel, 2010s beautiful, 2014s Birdman, 2015s the revenant, and 2022s Bardot. The last four of which he also co wrote. He has personally won four Oscars, best picture, best director and best original screenplay for Birdman, and just a year later, best director for the revenant, making him one of only three filmmakers who have ever won that high honor in back to back years. After John Ford and Joseph L mcelwain. And he was also awarded an honorary Oscar for his 2017 virtual reality project carne IRENA. Few filmmakers have ever accumulated that much hardware from the academy, and he's still only 59. Widely known as one of the three amigos, a trio of Mexico born filmmakers who have risen to the top of the international film industry in the 21st century. The others being Alfonso cuaron and Guillermo del Toro, three of his films have been chosen to represent Mexico in the best international feature Oscar race. Each in a different decade, a more a sparrows, which was nominated, beautiful, which was nominated, and this season, Bardot, which might well be nominated. He has also directed ten performances to Oscar nominations. Those given by Naomi Watts and Benicio del Toro in 21 grams, Adriana barraza, and rinko kikuchi in Babel. Javier Bardem in beautiful Michael Keaton, Edward Norton, and Emma Stone in Birdman, and for the revenant, Leonardo DiCaprio, who won best actor and Tom Hardy. They each owe him thanks as do we for making the trip up to Chapman to be with us today. And so without further ado, would you please join me in welcoming Alejandro Gonzalez in yari team. Thank you. Welcome to Chapman. We are so thrilled to have you. And always want to begin just right at the very beginning for anyone who may not know, can you share where you were born and raised and what your parents did for a living? I born in Mexico City and raised in Mexico City, live in Mexico City until I was 36 years old. And your parents, my parents, my father is from long one. My mother is chilanga from Mexico City. And what did they do? They were not in this business in any way. No, I'm the black ship, I think anybody. The rarest pieces. No, my father was a banker, then he became kind of a he starts selling fruits and vegetables in restaurants. And my mother was just like housewife. And you are the youngest of 7? Or 5, 5. Yeah, I have a brother, three sisters, and then me. The little one. Now, I have heard there are false reports out there, maybe this isn't true, but you weren't the most well behaved kid, you might have been asked to leave school at one point. Starting in your early 20s, you began experiencing perhaps not coincidentally from all the rest of that. Some severe anxiety attacks panic attacks that really continued for years. What do you think all that was about? Were you what were you in terms of your behavior and your physicality? What were you reacting to? It's hard to know. I have been in therapy for 35 years and meditating in the last ten. I think it has to do a lot with a lot of suppressed emotional issues, things that I think I was raised Catholic very conservative. I think my instinct and my spirit and my thoughts were maybe not fitting with where I was kind of the environment. So I think has to do a lot with those kind of things. We can not. Underestimate the subconscious mind. So I think the actually the panic attacks started when I smoke a pot of marijuana. You're familiar with that. And something happened that, you know, I used to smoke hashish and marijuana and I was always kind of cool and laughing. But that day is only three Friends of us, something was in that. And it was just really triggering me incredible paranoia state like ten hours. They have to take me to the hospital because I thought that somebody would kill me there in shower, kind of Hitchcock kind of thing. So it was really scary. And then I started developing this without smoking marijuana. Since then, I stopped any drugs. I'm superpower with drugs because I know my brain is already screwed. So I don't want to screw it more. But I think it has to do with that trigger. And then it took me like 5, 6 years, and at that time, mental health was not even a word. And to say that you are paranoid or you're scared or panic was actually not in that society at that time. So I have to keep for myself. Possible that part of it also, I read from an unusually early age, you're reading about existential matters and things that might cause anyone, let alone a teenager to feel some anxiety. I agree.

"And on, I went to undergrad there and then stayed for like ten years. But this past spring I was working there and it's the first time I lived by the beach. I grabbed an Airbnb in Venice. And I will never not live close to the beach when I'm back in LA it was gorgeous. I was with some Caribbean friends in New York. You know, we've been walking around and looking at other things and it was amazing in the whole thing, and then we finally got to the Hudson. And they suddenly relax and they were like, thank God, like, we didn't know where the city breathed. I got it. Yeah, yeah. Hello, I'm Minnie Driver. Welcome to the mini questions season two. I've always loved priests, questionnaire. It was originally a 19th century parlor game where players would ask each other 35 questions aimed at revealing the other players true nature. It's just the scientific method really in asking different people the same set of questions. You can make observations about which truths appear to be universal. I love this discipline. And it made me wonder, what if these questions were just the jumping off point? What greater depths would be revealed if I asked these questions as conversation starters with thought leaders and trailblazers across all these different disciplines. So I adapted Proust questionnaire and I wrote my own 7 questions that I personally think are pertinent to a person's story. They are. When and where were you happiest? What is the quality you like least about yourself? What relationship real or fictionalized defines love for you? What question would you most like answered? What person place or experience has shaped you the most? What would be your last meal? And can you tell me something in your life that's grown out of a personal disaster? And I've gathered a group of really remarkable people, ones that I am honored and humbled to have had the chance to engage with. You may not hear their answers to all 7 of these questions. We've whittled it down to which questions felt closest to their experience or the most surprising or created the most fertile ground to connect.

And every Monday idea friend, Garrett, Vogel, from C 100 joins us, hey carrot, are you there? Bobby, good morning. I had to take a week off because I just needed to cleanse myself of all the food that I took in over the past week. I mean, from pies to turkeys to cranberry and can. I mean, I had it all, rob. There was no, there was no plate unturned in my house. It looked great. Do you do it at your house? No, we went to we went to see my sister and brother in law out in Pennsylvania because it was also my wife's birthday on Thanksgiving, go figure she wasn't born on Thanksgiving. It's just her birthday this year fell on Thanksgiving. Right. And she didn't want to cook and rightfully so. I don't blame her. So I did the smart thing. I was like, I can't cook for my life depended on it, rob. So we were like, oh, let's go visit the family, and we've been surprised. The four of us. It's not too. It's for when you rock up, it's a cough. I'm excited. Thanksgiving. Really lovely. We spent it with Bruce's family, but we also spent it with this guy called asy wind, who you might not have heard of. But he is incredible. So I get to see a lot of shows. I talk about them here on the podcast. This is the best show that I have seen all year. He's a magician, and I didn't really want to go. I sort of dragged there, but I knew he was going to be great because David Blaine called mister wind his favor. His favorite magician, Penn and teller, who I love, they called him one of the best magicians they have ever seen. And I got to admit, it is unbelievable. So it's only about a hundred people and you're in this room and it's a circular room and in the middle of the room is a table and he sits at the table and what he does for 70 minutes is on burr believable. Don't you love the fact that you just had to be like kicked in screen? I did not get to get there like straight jacket to get there like throw a temper to tantrums. If you don't be quiet tantrum and you get there and you're like, I shouldn't have thrown this temper tantrum. Honestly, I'm gonna get everybody tickets to this show, as he wind, it's off Washington square park, so it's downtown by the university. And it's a really cool crowd and it's a deck of cards and what he does for an hour is on believable one. Deck of cards. He's very cute though too. I've got to admit, he's cute and charming. And I found it actually very emotional. I almost burst out in tears. I can't describe this well enough, but trust rubber. This is the best show I've seen all year. I think it's better than Hamilton. I thought you were saying rob shooter is if I learn magician magic to the equivalent of this magician. Yes. I might be just as good as him because I already have the looks as well where you have the good looks. I already love you, but if you can. Yeah, it's your charming, your good-looking. It's magic. If you can shuffle some cards and make things disappear, I will marry you. He's brilliant. I'm gonna get all my friends this for Christmas. So if you're listening, don't worry, it's a great gift. It's the best gift I've probably ever given. As a wins, it is circle if you're in the UK. Let's jump in. What time is it, my Friends, and it's two times. Oh, Prince William and Kate are coming to Boston. They're coming to America. And people are pointing out already how different this trip will be, how different they are to Harry and Meghan, it's a three day trip across the Atlantic, and it's full of William to present a prize in Boston. Now, while royal fans were all got our fingers crossed, that while they're in America, maybe. William and Kate could see Harry and Meghan. Unfortunately, the force are not even going to do a Zoom call, let alone be in the same room, so it's not happening. Oh, you're coming to America we're at a town that weekend. It's a bad look. They should figure this out. They're coming. If I went to Britain, even if it was to present an award. If I went to London and I didn't make the trip down to Wales, my mom and dad are on the Welsh border to see my mama bear, I've been troubled. How long is that trip? It's nothing. It's a couple of hours. I've been so much trouble. I wouldn't do it. If I went to Britain, there's no way I would go to Britain. But if your sister was accepting the award. No, I think I'd say Christine too. She's annoyed, but I think it's interesting too. Last time I was in Britain on a work trip, I went with Ashley Simpson, remember her Jessica. She's one of my first crushes. Really she's very pretty. She's a very, very pretty person. So she was doing Chicago. The musical in Britain and as with her to do. All the jazz. Which I love, but I gotta say, it ain't as good as sassy with. I love him. He's my new favorite superstar. I think I like it better than being no longer allowed to say that name in my presence and I learned that I'm not allowed to say his name. He's so amazing. So I was in London with Ashley Simpson and I invited my family up to come and see the show, so I got to do work and pleasure. You can mix both of them. So they're in Boston to present this really prestigious award and now are insider is telling page 6. It just goes to show you how different they are now as royals that William and Kate have a constitutional role and they're working on behalf of others versus being celebrities. So a couple of days after William and Kate give out this award, Meghan and Harry are coming to New York to accept an award, so the crossover is pretty close to a couple of days afterwards they get to come to New York, Meghan and Harry to accept the Robert F. Kennedy ripple of hope award. So they're just going to be like ships, I guess, that pass in the night Garrett. They should make an effort to see each other, shouldn't they? But here's the thing. If they were happening in the same city, that's one thing, but you and I both know. Yeah, Harry is Harry and Meghan are in LA. So with the tailwind and the JetBlue flight price is pretty cheap right now. They could be there and let's just say four and a half hours if they kick the right eye, which we know is not going to happen and then back home without maybe 6. So a ten hour trip to see your brother for maybe about an hour, it's not worth it. Oh, it's worth it. It's worth it do it. I just think, honestly, if I was your publicist here, I'm not. I'd say karma. Or maybe even William and Kate should fly over to California.

"And my grandfather was born in 1883. I had a proper Victorian for a grandfather. So my grandfather was born in 1879, it turns out. What? Yeah, he was 50 years old when he had my father and my father was getting close to 50 when he had me. That's bananas. It was really interesting being taught to grow tomatoes by a 97 year old grandpa. Yeah. And my mother was always making jokes about are you sure girls are allowed to grow tomatoes? Hello, I'm Minnie Driver. Welcome to the mini questions season two. I've always loved priests questionnaire. It was originally a 19th century parlor game where players would ask each other 35 questions aimed at revealing the other players true nature. It's just the scientific method, really. In asking different people the same set of questions, you can make observations about which truths appear to be universal. I love this discipline. And it made me wonder, what if these questions were just the jumping off point? What greater depths would be revealed if I ask these questions as conversation starters with thought leaders and trailblazers across all these different disciplines. So I adapted Proust questionnaire and I wrote my own 7 questions that I personally think are pertinent to a person's story. They are. When and where were you happiest? What is the quality you like least about yourself? What relationship real or fictionalized to find love for you? What question would you most like answered? What person place or experience has shaped you the most? What would be your last meal? And can you tell me something in your life that's grown out of a personal disaster? And I've gathered a group of really remarkable people, ones that I am honored and humbled to have had the chance to engage with. You may not hear their answers to all 7 of these questions. We've whittled it down to which questions felt closest to their experience or the most surprising or created the most fertile ground to connect. My guest today is the neuroscientist and author, David eagleman. I'm not sure I've ever heard a really long conversation with a polymath before. But you sure don't forget it when it's over because, you know, you keep waking up thinking about things they said and it spans everything from quantum spirituality to philosophy to neuro law and science to coffee in IHOP. David writes about the brain and how it constructs perception and how different brains do so differently. And how much that matters for society. Here's among many other things, the executive director of the scent of the science and law, which is a nonprofit that sets out to improve the legal system by importing our knowledge about the human brain, which then gives options for rehabilitation beyond mass incarceration. He's written tons of books and you will read and be astonished by all of them. He said something that I think about a lot. He said he was interested in exploring the vastness of our ignorance. And he said it with this kind of interest and excitement. And without judgment of our human brains, which he also described and I'm paraphrasing, as the three pound meat machine who lives in the dark and basically runs everything. I hope you enjoy

Hi everyone and thank you for tuning in to the 466th episode of The Hollywood Reporter's awards chatter podcast. I'm the host Scott feinberg, and my guest today is a British actress and screenwriter who is the only person who has ever won Academy Awards for both acting and writing. In addition to those two Oscars, the former for 1990 twos Howard's end and the latter for 1995 cents and sensibility, she has also won three Bafta Awards, two Golden Globe Awards, one Emmy Award, and one critic's choice award, with her other credits, including 1990 threes the remains of the day and in the name of the father, 1990 8s primary colors, 2003s love actually, and for TV, the limited series angels in America, 2004s Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban, 2006s stranger than fiction, 2007s Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, 2009s and education, 2013s saving mister banks, 2017s the meyerowitz stories, 2019s late night, and this year's good luck to you, Leo grant. All of which might explain why the 2018 citation in which Queen Elizabeth II made her a dame describes her as, quote, one of Britain's most versatile and celebrated actresses. Why Vanity Fair has said she, quote, redefined our image of female stardom close quote, why interview has called her, quote, the rarest of cinematic talents, close quote, and why the observers Mark kermode once said, quote, she's up there with the great. I mean really great. British female performers. I'm talking, of course, about Emma Thompson. Over the course of our conversation, which Thompson recorded from her London home after being honored at a luncheon by the UK Critics' Circle, the oldest association of critics in the world, for her services to the arts, and at which she gave a speech about the impact of film critics, the 63 year old and I discussed the origins of her pursuit of acting and of her deep and passionate feminism. The peaks and valleys of a long career as a woman in the business, why in Sophie Hyde's good luck to you, Leo grin, she agreed to play a retired school teacher who was recently widowed and hires a sex worker to help her finally experience an orgasm, plus much more. And so without further ado, let's go to that conversation. Emma, thank you so much for joining us on the podcast. Great to have you. And on this podcast, we always begin truly at the very beginning and always ask where our guest was born and raised with their folks did for a living. I know that in your case, it sort of was in the genes, right? It sort of was in the genes. I was born to parents who were what my dad used to call jobbing actors, they had come from respectively quite interesting homes. Nothing to do with the arts, moms was sort of more clergy and it was Scottish and I suppose you would call it middle class, although Scotland's not the same really in our class system. So they were not well, they didn't have much money. And her mother was one of 7 children. A fascinating background, actually. 5 girls all had red hair and who all went off to Australia because they were going to immigrate. And on the journey, which was in 1915, on a big ocean liner, every single one of the girls got telegrams saying that their fiance had died in the First World War. So extraordinary kind of to think, you know, how close that background, how close that history is to our family. And my father, born in rural England in Surrey, to a very poor family, my grandmother, who was a scullery maid, she'd left school at 13, and at the interesting part of her story was that she went to work with a childless couple who lived on the coast, and when the zeppelins came over during the First World War, the wife would leave, and the husband

"Brought to you by State Farm, like a good neighbor, State Farm is there. Scandal advice for sugar and spice it's not even but nice hello, I will never know. Welcome to the naughty but nice show. I'm rob shooter and it's Monday, which means the idea friend Garrett Vogel joins us, hey Garrett, are you there? Rob shooter, yes, it is, I do not be a fooled by the mustache that I am growing. What inspired the new stash? Well, it is November, so it is movember as they call it or no shave November. So I'm kind of going a little bit of both because just the mustache alone, I look like Ted Lasso. Yeah, he is. And you know what? People start calling me that and I start going into the Midwestern English accent of y'all. Y'all go out there and play some football. I felt Garrett you look great. Hey, I went to see something like it harder than music or over the years. How was it? Now, I can't review it because it doesn't open. Oh, it's one of those. Did you enjoy, did you enjoy it though? I love it. Did you have fun? I love a fun experience. I loved it. Laughed out loud. If you like the movie, you're going to love the musical. Those actors and actresses, my goodness, 8 times a week, they work their bottles. I can't imagine. I do want like when I did the school play as in fiddler on the roof at school. By performance number three, I was a little over myself. I have trouble eating the same thing like twice in a row, you know? Like 8. Yeah, they do it. They're fan. Tastic, I can't wait for it to officially open in a couple of weeks. The buzz is already out there, so I'm not saying anything nobody here. Everybody knows it's a monster hit. Now it's just a question of how big a hit it will be. If I was you and my friends here on this show, I'd get your tickets now because once it opens and it gets that new York times and all those fabulous reviews Garret you know what it's like you can't get in. Oh yeah and you're paying times three of the normal prices for the ticket. By them now my Friends hey let's jump into our show, which you certainly can get right now. What time is it my Friends? It is tea time. Okay, so Aaron Carter's controversial unfinished memoir has now been delay following backlash from Hilary Duff's if you're a member. His memoir was going to be rushed out. Now in a press statement, they are saying that it is being delayed. It's not being scrapped. It's still going to be coming out just not this week. So at first, they were really capitalizing on the fact that he had just died and then we're going to rush at this book. The other side of this though is a journalist had been working with Aaron for over three years to get this story out. So the book is almost done. It's not totally finished. It was meant to come out next year. They were going to rush it out. I think wisely, they're not rushing it at this week, but this book is coming out. And I could go either way on this Garrett, part of me thinks, oh gosh, this is so tacky, this feels so creepy. Part of me thinks they worked on this. He wanted this book to come out. It's not like they're publishing his diary. He knew what he was doing and so he's got an incredible story to tell and if this story helps one two three people who struggle with substance abuse, maybe it's a good thing. Where do you fall on this? It's a complex one. If it's about recovering and getting better, yes, but Aaron, when he was alive, was known for kind of stretching the truth from time to time. And I could see this becoming very messy if the book is what he thinks about his brother or celebrities. It is. Exactly. And so then we're getting into a state's being sued and as we learned over the weekend, he doesn't have a will, so it's now the court, like it's just going to become a very messy situation. I feel bad for I feel bad for the author that was three years into it. But I think proceed with caution. Right. Let me tell you some of the things that reportedly are in the book. So why Hillary Duffy so upstairs? They used to date and allegedly in the book. He talks about him taking her virginity, also in the book, he talks about a creepy sleepover at Michael Jackson's house where the pop star was only wearing his underwear. Now, these scandalous salacious celebrity biographies, I normally eat this stuff up. I really do, I gotta be honest. The difference is he is no longer with us. And now it feels like something slightly different. There's something about it. I can't quite put my finger on it. I understand why people are upset about this. I understand why it is being delayed, but we want to know what you think about this. Should this book be released? Should Aaron Carter's controversial unfinished memoir ever be released? Hey, go vote on our Twitter page. Or our Facebook page, nordy Garcia, and be sure to check back tomorrow to hear your results, hey, Garrett, working on that. All right, well, I mean, a court of public opinion already knows he's guilty, but Alec Baldwin is looking to clear his name in a new lawsuit against the rust armor crew that resulted in the death of the cinematographer halyna Hutchins, just it feels like so many years ago, it was about a year ago, right? So Alec Baldwin, you know, he wants to clear his name. It wasn't his fault. You know, it was everybody else, but his pretty much, but at the end of the day, you know, court papers were filed pretty much just saying, hey, his Baldwin's attorneys, Luke nikas, and Robert M Schwartz, very attorney esque names right there. And when you hear those names you say automatically think, oh, those are attorneys right there. They said that it is owed a duty to those on set, including Baldwin to keep the set safe, meaning the armors that were supposed to say, hey, this gun is good to go. There's no, there's no live ammo in it. It's all fake, blah, blah, blah, and of course we know how the results of those went. Everybody out there, even though, even though Alec Baldwin might clear his name in this case, the whole idea of what happened still results back to Alec Baldwin. You know what I mean? No one knows the name of an armor. No one knows the name of an associate producer. The man who literally pulled the trigger, so no matter what Alex does legally declare his name, the court of public opinion, I think we'll always look at him as the guy who pulled the trigger. He pulled the trigger. I mean, he did do it, but I would want to know why were there live bullets? And Alex did not put those bullets there, so I really think here he wants to get to the bottom of it and often the only way to do that is by taking legal action. Now we should point out that the Santa Fe counter district turney could pursue criminal charges against Alec, that has not been decided yet also too. I don't think that could come. It's too messy of a situation, you know? Find out who put the bullets in the gun at least in that report. Like, they have investigated this. I want answers, and I think the family is owed answers here. And if it takes a lawsuit to get those answers, then so be it, but you are right, Alex name is always always

"Hi everyone and thank you for tuning in to the 465th episode of The Hollywood Reporter's awards chatter podcast. I'm the host Scott feinberg and my guest today is a producer of film and television who is one of the more fascinating and to some degree polarizing figures in Hollywood and has been for decades. The Guardian has written quote to those of tender sensibilities he is the devil incarnate, the man who helped destroy the movies and an architect of our cultural stupid, but to those who sit in Hollywood's counting houses, he's a man with his finger, plates at squarely on the movie going audiences, collective clitoris. He is money, close quote. Indeed, Playboy called him the most successful producer in history. Variety submitted that he is the only man in the business today to become famous strictly as a producer, and The New York Times said he could well be the most influential producer working today. And with credits including the following films to say nothing of his many hits on TV, it's hard to argue. Flashdance, Beverly Hills cop, Top Gun, bad boys, The Rock, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor, Black Hawk down, the Pirates of the Caribbean and national treasure franchises, and most recently, a sequel 36 years in the making. One of the first movies since the outbreak of COVID to bring people of all ages back to movie theaters in large numbers, Top Gun, maverick, which, 6 months after its release, is still playing in theaters, is 2022s highest grossing film by far with nearly $1.5 billion taken in at box offices around the world. Has received rave reviews. It's at 96% on Rotten Tomatoes and might well Garner a first ever Oscar nomination in the category of best picture for my guest. Jerry Bruckheimer. Over the course of our conversation at his Santa Monica office, the 79 year old and I discussed how advertising led him to producing. His roller coaster partnership from 1982 through 1995 on high concept films with the late Don Simpson a pair of The New York Times called the top producers of the 1980s and the Los Angeles Times described as the kings of commercial cinema, making movies in which style was substance and audiences left the theater buzzing from adrenaline rushes. What led him to bet when others wouldn't on directors like Paul Schrader, Michael Mann and Michael Bay, and on stars, including Johnny Depp, Nicolas Cage, and Tom Cruise, plus much more. And so without further ado, let's go to that conversation. Jerry, thank you so much for doing the podcast. Great to have you on this one. We begin right at the very beginning. Can you share for our listeners where you were born and raised in what your folks differently? I was born in Detroit, Michigan. My dad was a salesman. My mom was a housewife. And I'm first generation, both my parents came in the 30s from Germany to avoid the war. And it was a pretty humble upbringing, right? I mean, from what I could gather reading, there were not a lot of money lying around. That's for sure. Yeah. I could stretch my arms out. It both walls and my bedroom. Really? Yeah. Only child, what were your, I guess, a big thing, it sounds like that happened pretty early on that maybe has shaped everything since in a way. You have a generous uncle. Is that fair to say? Yeah, I had a number a couple of them. And one of them had a gift for you. Yeah, camera. He gave me a camera. And I was about 6 or 7 years old and we have pictures of me with that camera hanging around my neck when I was very young. So I started taking photographs right away. And was that something that you thought as time went by, you could do something with beyond a hobby, or when you go off to college, your major was psychology, right? That's right. That's right. So in a minor in algebra and sociology, how far away can you get? Just the education and the confidence it gives you by going to college. You feel you can take anything on. Yeah. So at the time you graduated, what did you think you were going to do with the rest of your life? And it never clue, not a clue. I applied to some advertising agencies when I got back to Detroit. And ended up in a mailroom for an advertising agency called McManus John and Adams in those days.

I'll be charting how the harassment and abuse of women and other traditionally marginalized people online has led us to our current political healthcare. And what we can do about it. Listen to Internet hate machine on the iHeartRadio app, Apple podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts. Hey, I'm Joel Stein. I want you to close your eyes and imagine a pocket watch. It's moving from side to side. You're getting very sleepy. Great. Now that I've hypnotized you against your will, you're going to start liking long form journalism, like so much. You're going to listen to a podcast where the host interviews a writer about their long form story every week. I'm that host. Listen to story of the week on the iHeartRadio app, Apple podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts. Here in the last archive, I've been trying to figure out what happened to truth. I've been telling stories about how we know what we know. And why it seems sometimes lately, because if we don't know anything at all. But I am done with the problems of truth. I want solutions. This season of the last archive is all about common knowledge. Is that kind of knowledge still possible? I tried to find out. Coming soon. Listen to the last archive on the iHeartRadio app, Apple podcasts, or wherever you get your podcasts.

Oh God. Which is yesterday's leftover chicken with a tin of asparagus soup. Oh God, oh God. A tin of mushroom soup. And macaroni and she'd slurp it around. I loved it at the time. And then I went back like those in my 20s and I thought, oh my God. So disgusting. That really does sound disgusting though. I have to say, however, I can think of some pretty rank things that my mother used to make, boiled beef and carrots. Boiling beef. She's trying to find a way of doing it so it would be tender and it turns out there is nowhere. Hello, I'm Minnie Driver. Welcome to the mini questions season two. I've always loved priests, questionnaire. It was originally a 19th century parlor game where players would ask each other 35 questions aimed at revealing the other players true nature. It's just the scientific method really. In asking different people the same set of questions, you can make observations about which truths appear to be universal. I love this discipline. And it made me wonder, what if these questions were just the jumping off point? What greater depths would be revealed if I asked these questions as conversation starters with thought leaders and trailblazers across all these different disciplines. So I adapted Proust questionnaire and I wrote my own 7 questions that I personally think are pertinent to a person's story. They are. When and where were you happiest? What is the quality you like least about yourself? What relationship real or fictionalised defines love for you? What question would you most like answered? What person place or experience has shaped you the most? What would be your last meal? And can you tell me something in your life that's grown out of a personal disaster? And I've gathered a group of really remarkable people, ones that I am honored and humbled to have had the chance to engage with. You may not hear their answers to all 7 of these questions. We've whittled it down to which questions felt closest to their experience or the most surprising or created the most fertile ground to connect. My guest today is bestselling author and psychotherapist Julia Samuel. Doing my own podcast feels like therapy and awful lot of the time. So it felt only right to have an actual psychotherapist on the show. I was first introduced to Julia's work when my mom died and somebody gave me her extraordinary book, which is called grief works. And even though I couldn't read it right away because reading about other people's experiences of grief and loss, just compounded my own, but it's interesting in the process of grief, you reach a point where you need to feel that solidarity or I did and you need to feel like you're not alone. And that book helped me so much and every time I have a conversation with Julia, I feel like I unravel some deep gordian knot that I've been holding on to and this conversation that we had was no

But he has also racked up an impressive list of acting credits under his own name for directors, including Gina prince bythewood, Cameron Crowe, susanne beer, and Judd Apatow.
