"And what's interesting is, I mean, how many times do we hear from celebrities? They want to tell us how to live our lives. They want to tell us what to do. They try to virtue signal to us. They try to tell us that there are superior to us that the morally superior to us, that we're wrong the way that we live our lives, that we're stupid. They sit there at these award shows and lecture to us about how to live. And then they're silent on this. Silent. You've got people like model Bella Hadid, actress Nicole Kidman, singer, Dua Lipa, who have all starred in balenciaga's fashion show, remain silent. It remains silent. Kardashian is really the only celebrity that, you know, I think that has worked with them that has at least addressed the matter to some degree. The mother of four said this. She said she was shaken by the disturbing images. But despite that, she's not completely distanced herself from the brand. She's saying that she's just reevaluating her relationship with balenciaga. Now, to some degree, we should be appreciative to some degree that she's at least said something. But Kim Kardashian is very, very rich. Do you think she really needs this money? She doesn't need this money. Is it about the money or is it about wanting to be associated with this fashion powerhouse of wanting to be in the cool of wanting to be in the know of wanting to be in the mix? Because I feel like that's where a lot of this cowardice comes into play, whether it's the COVID stuff we were talking about earlier, just cowardice in general. It's people wanting to fit in. Even though they know something is wrong, even though they know something should be condemned, they don't want to condemn it because they still want to be invited to the parties. They still want to go to the Met Gala. They still want to fit in. They still want to be part of the cool club. But what's sad is at this rise of cowardice that we're seeing in the United States, we're also seeing this rise of sexual exploitation of children. And we're going to get into that later. This is Lisa booth on the Dan bongino show. You're going to want to stay with us. We've got so much more to cover
Balenciaga's 'Edgy' Lotta Volkova Is Twisted
"There's a woman named lada volkova. She is balenciaga's senior stylist. W magazine once called her the coolest stylus in the industry and by cool, this is the way people talk. They mean that she's edgy. And takes chances and those bold things. In other words, she does disgusting things that people don't. People are too afraid to speak down about because what do I know? Maybe she's so brilliant. She just knows so much more than me. I'm not going to stand up and say this idea is horrible. I mean, it's a lot of October. Because stylus in the industry. And when you get to the balenciaga level of stylish stylist, that's pretty big. Now, a few days ago, the fashion house tried to blame the photographer for the child sex controversy, but now it seems clear that the real fault is with volkova. In fact, the photographer came out and said, I don't know what they're going to do once I take the pictures and you know, I know he's got to be a little complicit when he took the pictures that those things were out, the plush BDSM teddy bears were in the little girl's hand, so I don't know what that means. But I will add them on Instagram, but of course he didn't write back to me. Because I said, what kind of a sick bastard would take pictures of kids like that? I'm sure he didn't even look at it because he's been too busy getting creamed by a lot of people in the public. But it's a big, big problem. And this vocal has been working with working closely with the head of balenciaga, in other words, the fish stinks from the head down. In other words, everybody knew about it and was in on it. Because it was edgy, and who's going to complain, but it's so popular. Do you see that Kanye wears us and Kim Kardashian wears us and Nicole Kidman does add to us? Isabelle huppert does add for us? Yeah, well, that backfired, didn't it assholes? But now ever since people became aware of this perverse ad campaign, volkova suddenly made our Instagram private. I ran through my phone to look at her Instagram, gone. But you can go on the Internet and find some snaps. If you're sadly enough, it's not that hard that they're out there. But you can get a peek at how messed up she is. I mean, you don't want to walk away from your phone and vomit. It's just a very glaring indication of how many people. People in important and very influential positions innocent little children like stray dogs. Some of the pictures I saw had disgusting imagery of children and all sorts of haunting violent sick perverted ways. Like a lady wearing a red latex shirt holding two plastic newborns covered in red red blood. Just sick shit. A toddler lifting up the skull of a dead man. A child lying in the middle of a pentagram while the devil sits on a throne behind it. Devil has his legs spread wide open. He's not wearing any pants. Just a new devil with a kid on the floor. It's actually one of those pictures with an adult woman on the floor. You got a female toddler lying on her side, smiling a little girl's smile, but honor they have this JonBenét Ramsey wig and full beauty contest makeup. There's a little, there's a little boy bound to a chair and gagged. There is a feminized little boy posing like a female in a position I can't even imagine getting in. He's got no top on he's wearing jeans and gold pumps. Then there's the bursting I've ever seen. A photo titled murder and a child's bedroom. It's so disgusting. It looks like an actual crime scene. I mean, it's almost like, I mean, I know, I'd all happen recently that the four murders and I Idaho, but it's almost like they were depicting that. You see a bloodied bed. Covers a role messy, there's a person child, I should say, I can't tell if it's female or male. For the back of the bed, face against the wall, blood everywhere in the bed. And on the bloodied carpet, there are several items of bloody clothes on the floor. There's a record player. And some records and albums around and disarray,

"And so I'm wondering if you might just walk us through what kind of led you to some of these decisions that would make you turn down a job, basically. Yeah, I think it really is, it comes from a place of we believe in walking the walk as well as talking the talk. I mean, we know that we also know that we have a responsibility as women with platforms and women with these incredible communities and we just could not be showing up at fashion week walking runways or being a guest and attending fashion shows where we didn't feel like we were being represented. I mean, you know, the whole point is for influencers, models, creators, actors, to come to these events, to basically bring attention, right? And to shine a light on the brand and we were like, wait, why are we going to give attention to a brand who is not acknowledging our existence? And so we made that decision. I mean, we turned down some incredible brands that we've looked up to and been so excited about for many years because they're just wasn't any inclusivity on their designs. Or whether that be in the runway, yeah. Yeah, so a lot of times we're seeing now where brands will use plus models, but not actually offer plus sizes, which is a whole conversation. Here's the shoes and the bag and the sunglasses. Exactly. Go down the runway and thank you. We can check our like we used a curvy girl box. And the thing is we vote with our eyes and our dollars. So whatever we're looking at, whatever we're paying for, that's where we're supporting, even if we say something, it's what you're looking at and what you're paying for. So for us, we can't rightfully go to these things and not acknowledge the fact that there is a discrepancy that there's no representation. So we said, we're just not we're not going to be involved in it. We're not going to go. We're going to take a really hard stance on this. And for us, it just is so much bigger than just us to going to a fashion show. You know, it's making a stance. It's making a statement and sometimes you have to miss out on things and you have to take a really hard stance that's like not as fun for something bigger than you and something more important than you. And so that's where that came from. I do think it's interesting at this day and age that even though we are seeing more representation, I think we can say that having been in the industry we're seeing more than we were 5 years ago, certainly ten years ago. But it's interesting that there's still a lot of just like criticism overall. Of women's bodies, like whether it's Nicole Kidman on the cover of Vanity Fair, she was wearing that little mew mew outfit and people were just going crazy because here's this woman 50 years old showing her body like how dare she and they've got something to say about it, right? And I feel like if you're having more inclusive sizes too, you get half the people who are going, this is great, yes, and then you get half the people who are actually saying and this is not me saying it. They're like, this isn't a healthy thing to represent. And I think, you know, broadening that idea of what that looks like. I'm curious what your opinion is on that. I think that we have come a long way. I think that we have miles and miles to go. I think we have just very slightly scratched the surface. For instance, back to what you were saying about Nicole Kidman being on the cover of Vanity Fair, it is such a rebellious act to love your body these days, people just are up and arms.

"Don't know. I'll remember that. It was a time. When I could have had you shut your body in your new memoir, you say, that's not the way the scene was originally written. Originally, you didn't slap this businessman right after he slapped you. What did you do in the original scene and why did you want to change it? The original scene called for the businessman to slap me and for me to absorb it and leave. I found it reprehensible that the writers, writing for that period, would not have written it differently. And I felt that the natural emotional response to being slapped as an I'm speaking not a Sydney Poirier, but I'm speaking as a Philadelphia detective. That the natural response to a man slapping him, he's got a slapping right back. And I elected as an actor to do that because we're right. The guy from Philadelphia was slapped. I would slap the guy right back. And I thought that that would be since those kinds of moments were never found in American films from the inception of films in this country. That kind of a scene, which would be electrifying on the screen was always either avoided, not thought of, and I insisted that if they wished my participation in the film, that they would have to rewrite it to exemplify that. They were meaning the director Norman Jewison. And the producer want to marry fabulous. Both of them said, hey, that's great. Let's do it that way. So we did it, and it indeed did turn out to be a highlight moment in that film. But it also spoke not just of the two characters. It spoke of our time. It spoke of the time in America, when in films, at least we could step up to certain realities. Well, I thank you so much for talking with us. Thank you for inviting me. My interview with Sidney Poitier was recorded in 2000. He died earlier this month at age 94. Now we're going to hear the interview I recently recorded with Nicole Kidman. She stars in the new film being the Ricardo's, a fictionalized version of what happened behind the scenes in one eventful week while Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz.

"It just seems there's this anyway I hate talking about it 'cause it's too it's actually still too much a part of who I just can't, it's too present in my life. Those calls understood. Yeah, so I talk about it and then I go, ah, don't tread into this right now because it's just too emotional, especially with Jean Marc recently and it's just like, ah. I don't want to even put words to it. But I will say I really I loved Stanley and for him to leave the world so suddenly seems it was awful at the same time I loved my father for him to leave the world so suddenly Jean Marc to leave the world so suddenly but suddenly is probably for the person that leaves the yuko oh, okay. Wow, at least there wasn't pain. There's pain for us, but there wasn't pain for you, and I'm very glad there wasn't pain for you. So you're in Australia now helping to take care of your mother. I'm wondering if it's easier than it's ever been, maybe to talk about parent child issues, like your parent now, you probably understand things about how she parented you that you didn't understand when you were a child. And you've made a lot of choices based on your life and about how you were parented about who you're going to raise your children. Has it been comfortable talking about those things now? Yeah, but I meant the place where I'm being given the chance to view the world because of how close we are, my mom is giving me the chance to view the world through an 80 81 year old woman's eyes. That is so beneficial right now. Because she's so cognizant, who she has every faculty, brain faculty, available. So she's, you know, she hasn't lost anything. She hasn't lost any memory, which is fascinating. And she's extremely bright. So she's giving me access because she's also very direct and very honest, and so I'm getting access to the world through her eyes, my mother's eyes, so therefore a part of me almost at 80. What are you seeing? Oh, that's too too hard right now. That's fine. Yeah, but I will be able to tell you that in a few years. I'm seeing a lot. I'm jumping into the psychology and emotional place of that. And it's her perspective, obviously, so there's many different 80 year old perspectives, but it's her perspective and her particular path, but I'm drinking it in. And learning. Nicole Kidman, it has just been wonderful to talk with you. I wish you good health. I wish your mother good health. I wish her well. And thank you, thank you for spending time with us. Thank you for having me. Nicole Kidman stars on the new film being the Ricardo's. Tomorrow I'm fresh air. We'll hear about a disturbing story of civilian deaths in the battle against ISIS. Our guest will be New York Times correspondent David Phillips, who reported on a secret unit in the U.S. Military that picked targets for air strikes, circumventing rules to protect non competence and often killing farmers in their fields and families trying to flee combat.

"Well, I haven't watched it recently. So I haven't really seen it through my eyes today. Specifically, I have the memory of what it was and it definitely didn't feel like that. That actually was my dress in that scene. That came from my wardrobe because Stanley didn't like any of the other wardrobe choices so he was like, let's go to your house in your closet. You must have a lot of dresses. And I'm like, oh, we're renting the house. I've brought some things with me at Stanley. And so he sat outside and I went into my closet and tried things on and came came out with that beautiful galliano dress, which I still have. And he said, yeah, let's wear that. And I came up with the shot. I said, what about, look, it can drop like this. That's how I can get very fluid how it comes off. Well, that's interesting. So it's a director and an actor working together. Interesting, yeah? When I think of it like that, if you're just joining us, my guest is Nicole Kidman. She stars as Lucille Ball on the new film being the Ricardo's. We'll be right back. This is fresh air. Let's get back to my interview with Nicole Kidman. When we left off, we were talking about her role and Stanley Kubrick's 1999 film eyes wide shut. He died 6 days after the screening of the final cut of a heart attack at age 70. It must have been you've talked about how close you became to him, it must have been heartbreaking to lose him just as the work to lose him for permanent just as the work was ending. Yeah. Yeah. I was. It was. I mean, I think I'm pausing for a second because Jean Marc Vale just passed as well. Yeah, and you worked with him on big little lies. Yeah. Yeah. We weren't making anything together, but at this stage. But we were definitely circling things. And I think I'm still probably I received phone calls. That are very shocking and I don't and so I received their phone call about Stanley having faxed him. It was in the time of faxing. He faxed me so. And I was like, oh, should I call him tonight? And I didn't. And then I got the phone call the next morning. And I had my two young children with me and I just dropped the phone and screamed everything you probably shouldn't do in front of two young children, but it was a very immediate response. I was just awful. Awful. Do you think they were frightened by your screaming? I held them and walked them through her just as I've done when my father died and I had my two young goals..

"And opera did, and modern dance did. And literature did, and probably films was the last part of the theater was before that, and then films. Yeah, that's surprising. But quite good to quite good because I circled it because I do think you need all those other influences. And I think the classical training can be very, very helpful. I mean, it is very helpful. It's needed and the things you think are never going to be of any benefit to you turn out to be huge benefit. But it was just, I think the artistic interest and the desire to find the way people express themselves and their voices. And I suppose the connection to ideas and being transported with ideas instantly to emotions to feeling was the way in which I came to being an actor. You work with Stanley Kubrick, on his last film, eyes wide shut. Which was released in 1999. Had you always wanted to work with him? Did you admire his films? I mean, admires two week a word of intoxicated by his films, fascinated by his films, hypnotized by his films. So never not wanted to work with you just never thought I would ever be in a Stanley Kubrick film. I recently interviewed Alan cumming who's also in eyes wide shut and he was saying that when you work with Kubrick like Kubrick could have him do like many, many takes, but every time there was another take, Kubrick would explain why and what he wanted, and he loved he loved that. And he thought he might not have stayed an actor if it wasn't for Kubrick. What did you learn from working with Kubrick? And what was it like for you to do take after take? I mean, I just surrendered to the process, which is probably the best thing. We were there for 6 months, just talking about the script. And hanging out with Stanley in his home with his family and his cats and I was there for a year and a half almost two years doing that. And we were, it was thrilling for me. It was long. It was arduous. You would do a huge amount of takes, then you would get it, then you wouldn't. Cook lunch in the trailers, Stanley would come in and eat pasta, all of these great actors would come and go..

"Through the window or behind from behind a curtain we'd look. We'd never listen at the door or anything. But in the hospital, yes, we would see things and not get the full story or hear things. We need to take another short break here. Let me reintroduce you. If you're just joining us, my guess is, Nicole Kidman will be right back. This is fresh air. Life kit is like your friend with really good advice. So, can I really be truthful? It's just me and you, right? Well, sure. Let's say it is. Three times a week, life kit is in your feeds with episodes on health, personal finance, personal growth, and so much more. Listen to life kit from NPR. This is fresh air and if you're just joining us, my guess is Nicole Kidman, and she stars in the new film being the Ricardo's, as Lucille Ball. Your mother, as you said, was a nurse educator. Did she identify as a feminist? She did. What did that mean to you as her daughter? Did she talk to you about issues affecting women and women's equality? Always. To the point where we're like, shut up, mom. And I would go and hand out pamphlets for the women's electoral lobby because I was made to. And I was very embarrassed, doing it. What was the women's electoral lobby? Feminist group here. And I would sit in the back of the room sometimes, which was fascinating, actually. And listen to conversation. So I was privy to a lot very early on. But I would also in the same way most kids react to their parents, just be like everybody else don't try to have an opinion that goes against the grain that sort of thing. And then as I got older, I relished it. Then I was grateful for it. You started acting when you were 14. How did you know you wanted to act? I wanted to act, I think, because it was I had so much inside me and I wanted to work since I was I can not remember not wanting to. And I started reading big big novels and I would become the characters and then I started reading plays and I would become the characters. In your mind or would you actually act them out with people? No, never with people, always by myself in my bedroom or in my mind. I've played every role in Chekhov. I've played in your bedroom. In my bedroom. At all different hours, day or night, ibsen. I've played those roles. But I did realize that at some point, that was going to be the only way I was going to play certain roles. And that was going to have to be enough. So, yeah, but that really, I was, I'm so fortunate that I discovered literature early. And that was having parents that read a lot. So I was and also because I have very fair skin. I wasn't allowed to sit on the beach during the midday sun. So I would stay home and everyone else would go to the beach and my mom would give me my book and I would just curl up in my bed and I would read and I was allowed to do that. So that turned out the thing that I was very frustrated though that I couldn't go to the beach. And I'd make a sandwich and I'd get into bed. And I would read and read and read and read and read and little did I know that that was going to lead me to my vocation. Did watching movies lead you to your vocation to movies or television? Less so. That's interesting. Gowrie's did..

"But they weren't there. Skill set at all. And so I was pretty much on my own trying to do it. Was your father's office at home? Not his not his science lab. I would go into the science lab. When I was little little and I remember sitting in the science lab and doing my homework and he'd be in a lab coat. And we would just, you know, we were not we weren't wealthy, so we would have picked me out. My mom would work as a nurse educator till 6 p.m. at night. Sometimes we go into the hospital. So we'd go either to the science lab or to the hospital and wait in the little cafeteria room, but we would get glimpses of the hospital and we'd get to play with sometimes because she was in nursery educated. There would be she would be nursing, but she would also have the nursing school. And we'd have access to these life size sort of human dummies that would be naked under sheets, and we would sort of pull the sheets back and explore the bodies. You know, my sister would have to pretend to be a nurse, and I'd be the doctor and I'd come in and do operations on the lifelike dummy. With a stethoscope listening to very colorful and then we'd be in a science lab doing our homework watching my father over with a microscope and taking notes. It was quite good. That was good. Watching your father's patients come and go and then being in the hospital a lot of the time. Watching your mother, you must have seen so many people in a state of physical or emotional distress. More like, yes, but not getting the full story. You'd get glimpses and a glimpse into the secrecy. A glimpse behind the veil would be what I would say.

Had you sung professionally before the film? No, I'd sung in a band, you know, when I was a teenager. Oh, you did. What kind of band was it? Just a covers band when we never got a gig. Okay, wait, wait, stop. Let's stop here. What did you cover? I ain't no mountain high enough. Dreadfully. And then, you know, blondie, some blondie tunes. Blondie was my forte. Love blondie.

"And it was J. K. Simmons as Fred mertz. So talk a little bit about what you did to get the voice to get the Lucy voice. So I spent two and a half months working to get that voice, just the Lucy voice. No, the Lucille voice. Get that one. Voice. I know. And to get the accent because the quality of the voice is very specific. It's tonally much, much higher than where I speak, but it's much raspier. And it has that slight gravel to it. And then she has a very specific way of speaking her intonations. And her accent. So there's a lot to it. It's complicated. And that particular take that you just heard, that was part of a ten minute take where I then switch back into Lucille in the same take and we shot ten minutes straight where I take all the bandages off. It was like doing theater. And I switched back into the Lucille Ball ball voice where I become like, no, you got to go back. No, that doesn't work. That's not funny. Try this again. It was a high wire act. So what did you have to learn about voice placement about placing your voice in a different range? For the further. The Lucy voice for the lucio Carter is your soft palate. I can get very technical. There's an enormous amount of work that you do to raise your soft palate at the back and you have to not lose your voice because you're straining into a place that you're not usually coming from. So you have to do it in a way where it will last. And so I just learned that where you and then you place it up higher and higher. And I would just learn how to bring it up and he would my dialect coach and I would work on it and work on it..

"This is fresh air. I'm Terry gross. My guest is Nicole Kidman. She stars in the new film being the ricardos, a fictionalized version of what happened behind the scenes in one eventful week while Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz was shooting an episode of I love Lucy. The film was written and directed by Aaron Sorkin. Kidman just won a Golden Globe for her performance in the film. In a way she plays two roles as the actress Lucille Ball. She's a powerful woman who understands how comedy works and the kind of comedy she's best at, and knows how to fight for it with the writers and the director. Kidman's voice and physical presence change when she's playing Lucy Ricardo in the episode they're shooting of I love Lucy, which is a recreation of an actual episode of the show. In 2020, Kidman was number 5 on The New York Times list of the 25 greatest actors of the century so far. Kidman also won the best actress Emmy and Golden Globe for her performance in the HBO series, big little lies, which also won an Emmy for outstanding limited series. She was an executive producer. It's part of the work she's taken on behind the scenes, getting more creative control, and creating interesting roles for herself and other women. In 2003, she became the first Australian actress to win an Oscar when she received it for her portrayal of writer, Virginia Woolf, in the hours. The film that made her a star in America, the dark comedy to die for, earned her a Golden Globe in 1996. There's plenty of other awards I can mention like the 2002 Golden Globe for moulin rouge, but let's get to the interview. Nicole Kidman, welcome to fresh air. Thank you so much for joining us.

I am grateful to chuck for my verse by verse. You know systematic study of the scriptures. I do not resent that. I i am who i am because he did what he did. But we miss something. Because we didn't engage in the public square the matthew sixteen we avoided that and now california no longer has a fifth largest gdp. We have the six maybe seven.

Nicole kidman and javier bardem. I guess this is amazing but also it seems kind of terrible as as ideas go. What was your reaction to this news. My first reaction is. I'm just glad that nicole kidman and gets to have a little bit of just the tiniest bit of fine. Did you ever happened to catch the prom. Was the ryan murphy. Film version of a broadway musical speaking of things. We'll be discussing later on this podcast. I sure did. And i was not a fan nor was i. The only thing that i could say is like when they let nicole kidman do something which was very rare in this. She seemed to be having the time of her life and she was like. I don't have to have a breakdown. Like on a courtroom stand and talk about like really grim things while being filmed for once. And i'm flying free and so you know i assume this. Is i think this project in one form or another. I think errands has been trying to do this for a while. If you google. They're kind of like mentions of this project. Bopping around and i think it's about their marriage and working relationship presumably their ups and downs in it. Because it's a marriage. So i don't think it'll all be sunshine and roses for her but at least you'll get to do comedy. Yeah i think that's right on the one hand. We have seen her do comedy a few times in the past perhaps most notoriously in bewitched your icon nora ephron i kind of interesting but kind of bungled but kind of notable movie. What were you gonna say not. Everything works in not everything works. I'll say next week we're going to talk about one division. And i think the bewitched conversation and the idea of using bewitched as a satirical vehicle into another story is new again so as usual ephron ahead of the curve there nevertheless nicole kidman i. Is she gifted comic actress. I don't know maybe she doesn't have to be for this obviously lucille ball. Desi arnez their story as showbiz. Pioneers is not just a comic story. There's there's a lot of high drama that's place there. The other thing. I thought of when i read this news was that one of aaron sorkin non adapted works to to screen is something called the farnsworth invention which is about essentially the creation of the tv by filo farnsworth and we know that the origins of television and the origins of entertainment are quite important. Taryn sorkin and to the kinds of stories. He's he's often telling stories about people at the forefront of a new life changing kind of technology or culture. We've seen it with steve jobs. We've seen it with moneyball. We've seen it with the social network. He loves to find pioneers and tell their stories. And there's no doubt that. And lucy were major pioneers and tv. So you know. Of course we're going to watch it and devote six to twelve episodes about this on our show. And i'm sure it'll be good slash not good.

Which seemed e guess in one way. It sort of makes sense. She's redhead. He is Latino. But on the other hand, this movie is as I'm told, follows Lucy and Desi while they were starring on the show. I Love Lucy. And Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem are quite a bit older. Then they are ness is were when they were on the show. Uh, you know if it was their life after I love Lucy, if it was, you know their life after they both got remarried, and it would make more sense. But You know, to have them to have Nicole Kidman and have your bread dumpling 30 year olds doesn't seem to make a lot of sense to me. Yeah, I don't know. But I mean Hollywood makeup and what they can do. And I said, Look young. They're not old by any means. But I see what you're saying. They're certainly not their late twenties. Yeah, well, if you if you look at you know the I love Lucy episodes and I try to almost every day Uh, they they're considerably younger looking them. Nothing. I mean, nothing against them. Kidman, You know they're both younger than I am. But the you're gonna have hair extensions to make the difference. Yeah. There you go. I'm gonna look like share and a couple of days, apparently, but, yeah, I just think the age wise they could have found somebody else. To do this, and and I also want to point out in the cold. Kidman played Samantha Stephens when they remade Bewitched a few years ago, Maybe one of the worst movies that has ever been made. So there you go. I'm predicting I'm predicting disaster. I'm sure that with with a name like that, I just want a critic and predictions. Ass dirty movie hasn't even been major really reminded Miss Marjorie Bird would be so proud of me right now. I'm gonna get some hate mail D get in line. There you go. Jersey boys, Okay. When I saw it live here in Chicago, I left singing those tunas those songs all week long. I loved it. They already had a movie for this, right, though they're gonna Eastwood directed it. Yeah, I got another one. Well, what they're gonna do is they're gonna make they are going to make another movie of it. But it's going to be instead of taking the stage play and turn it into You know, sort of a dramatization. This one is going to be a movie of the stage play. Okay, much like much like they did with Hamels. Okay. Okay. You know where they where they took the actual stage play, and they filmed it. And then they were going to release it into theaters and said it went on Disney Plus That's what's gonna be happening with Jersey Boys. But what's really interesting here is They have signed one of the Jonas Brothers to be Frankie Valli in this new version of the Jersey Boys, So you know, I think the Jonas is gonna be great. He looks a little bit like a young Frankie Valli. He's got Broadway experience. He was in how to succeed in business without really trying and a number of other Broadway productions. He's a very good actor. I think that's AH, good choice and You're right. You can't beat that music that Frankie Valli and the four Seasons music. I love it in that production. I hope he has the falsetto for it. I'm assuming he does You know what? I don't know if if he does. And if if he doesn't That should have been part of the audition process. I think I mean, the whole thing's a talented singer, so so maybe can hit those high notes. But if not, that's gonna be an incredible strain on your vocal course. I know what is when I tried something like that. Exactly. But again, the extensions that will help you heat the higher notes. Gonna be my new show with my new show with the baton. Oh, God. I will join you in the baton. Any time you want the Richard haven't been to their new locations haven't either. Well, teen, it's a date. You and I were going. Alright. Right.

You know the kind of comedies that you see Kevin Hart in with the rock, and you know some of some of the others, So it's It's a huge major deal for Kevin. Who is It's so interesting to me because I remember so clearly. Kevin coming into Chicago. He would come on the morning show. He'd make the rounds of all the shows, you know, because he was appearing at zanies, or, you know, one stand up club or another. Come in all bleary eyed to promote his shows.

What roslyn franklin's incredible achievement walls that she was a technically quite brilliant with this new and difficult apparatus of x ray photography and she showed this first image. Hilary rose from city university london. She's been a sociologist. of science. Since the mid seventy s and the image is referring to is the x ray picture taken by rosalind franklin niners photograph number fifty one. It displays a doc. Black spotty cross shape which confirmed for watson and creek. They hypothesise that. The structure of dna is in fact. A double helix. Hilary rose is passionate about rosine. Franklin's contribution and believed her story is one of appropriation and rasiah without her consent. These pictures were taken by the third noble prize winner. Wilkins and they were shown to watson and crick in cambridge and this is appropriation. I mean there are harder woods for it. A ratio of course was dramatic in the nobel prize acceptance speeches. Roslyn is by then dead. So little people forget those no question hoping for price. 'cause they not give them to the dead they given to the living so the three man. None of them acknowledged her work public. What she gets is a footnote in morris wilkin so that's the asia and you would have thought on the occasion art a such a thing as the nobel prize. The woman is dead that there would have been case for little generosity. Not a hint of a three man. Just carry on as if she hadn't existed as she hadn't done the pioneering extra work. It wasn't a pool in shabby story. And there's plenty in the history of science strong views from sociologist. Hilary rose no matter which way you look at it though. The mystery of this dark lady is intriguing author. Brinda medics was so fascinated by rosalind franklin. That she's recently completed a comprehensive biography. He she is with robin williams. Rosen franklin's family very well off for intellectual whether or not they're very wealthy anglo jewish bankers they also had a publishing firm for the sons in the family who actually were inclined to banking rutledge and keegan. Paul you're very distinguished people very proud of their heritage and they trace their ancestry back to king david the founder of jerusalem. So i mean this is a family takes its ancestry seriously and so one of the problems i think was not so much her gender but class. She sounded aristocratic to them. She spoke terribly well very clipped and some people just hated that. And it's one of the many ingredients which actually made her disoriented and not as happy as she might have made a very clever little girl. And i mean as she was growing up quite small. She wasn't very clever. Little girl and i discovered family letter from her aunt mamie. Anyway she noticed rosalyn has a six year old and she rosalind is alarmingly clever. She does her sums for pleasure and invariably gets them right and i thought that alarmingly was very significant because roseland had three brothers but the fact that the girls should be the cleverest really did

Nikki Bella Sends Ex John Cena Belated Wedding Congrats
"This is daily and we have so much gossip to discuss. We are talking about the star. Who loves being naked and white halle berry is defending her skills in the bedroom. I nikki bella was just on the spot about her ex. john seen it. So on the all things being pumped podcasts. Nikki was asked if she congratulated john his wedding. Well here's what she had said. I haven't But yeah. I didn't say might supposed to show sundays to you. Could just say now john. I congratulate you on your wedding. It's they're documented. Yeah so john. Congratulations on your wedding. I'm very very happy three. Oh i really don't think you have to congratulate an ex when they get married. Don't you know. I mean. And if i do i wait like a year later mike. Oh we just we that you got research we know he. He was pregnant this morning. Well yes but this is pregnant with twins. But this is. I didn't congratulate on the first kid is the second round and realize you have three kids so interesting. I'm surprised that she didn't congratulate him on his wedding when he called her to congratulate her on having. The baby isn't like your normal reflex to be like that. And congratulations to what's going on in your life to john. I also think that you know. Just that i think you have a point. I think also because of the fact that he was genuinely probably really happy for nikki because she got everything that she wanted out of somebody that he would not give to her after so many years of her trying so i think there's less resentment on his end probably for her. She's really happy she has a new baby. She's with man she's supposed to be with but it's still unsure kind of triggers. Her instincts her a little bit when she's like well. Thanks mother effort but like you didn't do shit like i was waiting for six years. You didn't do anything that you were supposed to do and said you would do. Yeah i mean. I don't think that. I think that that's plenty. Especially whenever they both like you know moved on at felt like it was very fast. He their breakup seemed like a long time coming because they kind of accepted it but they both moved on kind of fast. And i think whenever it happens kind of fast like that. It's too fresh like you're like nah not happy for you yet. Give me some time to like. Get over everything that i still hold against you. And then maybe i'll be happy for you. Look let me give you some crying on the floor. Little advice for some going through something. Similar what i went through something like this for me. Saying congratulations to x. Who had moved on got married was kinda therapeutic because it kind of finalizes and it kinda close that chapter in your life. That relationship is not only not only over. But it's not coming back around for you right so then you can emotionally finally move on because no matter how happy you are you new relationship. No matter how happy you seem to be on social you still holding a flame for that person. You still want them person to want you back yeah. I don't know if it's a claim but that for sure one hundred percent. You're like i still expect that you're probably crying over me right. It's been twelve years but you're probably still upset about me really fast. Listrik thing it you still hold a flame over your ex is still want them to be like how you do it. It's not like crying on the floor. Just know that you think that's true. Okay that's all i need. Yeah that's all you guys done that though degray syntax ex when they have big moments oh god no because i don't think there's been any big moments yet. I i do think that once you've been with somebody for over four years it really becomes like it's it's just a bulbs into something more than just a romantic relationship. This is just a human being that you spent a lot of time with respect that point in your life that you had together you do like them as a person unless the person really did something you just wrong you and the and the damage irrevocable at some point you just sort of fade into. I really do want this person to do well. I did invest in this person and want us to be able to be cordial and nice. And i think that most people get there just in you got there. You were the bigger person in your last relationship you were. You definitely had your. There was some trauma there real quickly and said your piece one hundred percent but i never want my people be like. Oh yeah my ex is doing great. I want people to be like daniel man. That's what i'm looking guy. He's hanging out with data. That makes you feel bad though is bad as me. You're here he's got it all together. You are just same as me but let me tell you something i. The universe has put me in some uncomfortable situations where i'm not only running into my ex. I run into my ex. And his new boo right. So that's a little bit more difficult. What's hollywood is really small. But i truly adam. I am more like you as much as i like to say no. I am more of a happy that you're happy even though it's not as happy as you were with me but that's not just details details all right. The underlings breakout star until the day angeles says that she found it liberating to appear completely nude on the hbo show. She told interview magazine. Quote whether it's my eyes or my mouth or my boobs or my vagina. My body is just another tool to express myself so first off. I have to ask if you're nicole kidman And there's the scene where you're look. I mean cole looks. She's got the is. But i mean first of all. I can't believe we haven't seen this. I mean also justin. Don't you feel like this quote coming from this actress. Just feel so fitting like when you watch the show you can tell. She's extremely free with ourselves. She's extremely sexy. Attractive like shake just makes sense. She said that right. I think about nudity different than also. Doesn't she kind of random back like j. law a little bit like a little bit okay. A little bit. She does kind of. I think she's looking at her face. Krista it's so crazy to think about america when you come back question. I ask you know what i asked you. Just think about nudity differently like we were taught to shame our bodies. We were talking to hide our bodies. And i think when you're a european personnel actor you kinda sorta have this different vibe about it

Review: The Crown Season 4
"Let's move on onto the crown. It's been about ten days most people who loved the crowd. I think we're done with the season. Sadly one of the season five do you know now for two years. Yeah because they filmed the two seasons together together usually with the cast. Because i think it's easier on production and then also with the cova of it all. I don't know when they will be able to start production so that there was a two year break between seasons two and three and i think there'll be more to your break. Who will you miss the most which actor being extremely honest. It's going to be joshua crowder for. I really am what a monster charles becomes in the second half of season four. And what an effect josh o'connor still has me. It's really quite something. I said this via text by the scene episode austrailia when they do the kind of the ballroom dance for the show which is a real event. I've seen a lot of side. By sides of the they got the close. Perfectly matched was so charming. I don't understand why all men don't learn how to dance ballroom dance because it was like ninety seconds and i'm sold completely infatuated. He can do whatever just absolutely despicable entitled selfish things. He wants to do for the rest of the season. And i'm like oh but this guy really charming. It's it's pretty sad. What happened with him and his family. Don't you think how about the australia episode again. Catch the chris ryan on the watch. Yes i thought it was effective. My i don't wanna say my struggle. Let me just say season for masterpiece. Love the show love all four seasons. Great great television will watch again. Can't wait it. This is a show about the crown. And honor show about princess diana and i know that intellectually but i hid obviously been waiting for the diana's season my whole life that sometimes i wanted a little bit more diana or just like there is a lot more to be told obviously it would be told from her perspective and it would just be a different show so i i hate criticism when they're like the show. Were another show. The australia episode was. I thought a very well done like condensation of the entire diana phenomenon into one also and in reality that like happened over a span of years and the up stage effect and everything that they kinda that they illustrate was was very real but develops over time. And it's like the media plays more of a role. And i think there is like a lot more stuff between charles and diana and you know there's all this stuff with What's going on with diana and her believe me and her family is shown and handled pretty sensitively but not always developed from her side. If that makes any sense yeah. I think if you also you read about her her mental health struggles were like it. Very extensive and it was went beyond believe me and i thought that like it was handled well but also like i think it's worth noting that there is also many other episodes throughout her life or at least heard adult life. Yeah exactly and i understand why because they are as loop says in the very last scene of the season. This is a show about one woman. And it's not diana it's about elizabeth and it's about that institution so and you could do one hundred episodes of the eighties in the uk. Like there's so much going on. So i understand the choices that they had to make narrative in order to fit it all in and i thought it did paint a like a pretty thorough picture. But i'm always gonna want more. I just really didn't care for her monologue on the plane about the baby. Not that i thought it was like. I'm not like she's wrong but i just thought that was like emigrants were seen. I was just like this is working for me. But i thought that the stuff with charles's was pretty good. Yeah i think. I continue to think. I'm a porn is like astonishing and i've been thinking a lot about what you said about how you're not a the huge a fan but that the performance kind of stuck out to you and i get and i think that that is really perceptive and for me kinda part of what makes it work. I don't want to say it's like intention early. But diana did not fit in to this family. It was like different energy. A different vibe. And there's a great line in the queen. Which is the peter morgan. movie about. Princess princess diana's death and the week after it. Which i recommend starring helen mirren great stuff as sort of like great crown prerequisite or if he also available on netflix. Right now justify But the character in the queen says you have to remember that there. Diana are diana or two completely different people. And i think the performance captures a lot of that and like the scene. Went diana's trying to hug the queen and they're they're talking at each other and it's not just that they have philosophical emotional differences but they just come from different worlds. they have different emotions different energies. It's like total total mismatch. And that's definitely part of the problem. So when she is making her stands are expressing her. Diana s. sometimes it's really heartbreaking and sometimes are like what are you doing. This is completely wrong as encapsulated that julia did not worry me about which i appreciate from spoiler episode perspective but from a personal perspective. The phantom of the opera video cassette was hilarious and excruciating and. I do think the first time. I like fully pulled the blanket up over my head when watching it. I didn't actually watch it. The first time i had to just kind of sit like that and know that it would end soon and then i read wound to watch the facial expressions that is bisciste. Yeah and i you know i don't. I don't think that happened in relaxed. Maybe it did. I've never read it. And i think i would remember it but really the billion joel performance israel israel. Yeah and it in caps elites. Maybe i think that poor diana who had a lot going on and as you said like a lot of mental health issues and believe me and didn't have any support like her family was not very helpful or totally absent in the case of the crown. But there were also some things that just really ideologies didn't align how about that and and that scene shows you why who it really is just like so much. I can't believe we're only gonna get one season about mc oran. I feel like i m not like her biggest fan but also feel like switching the diana character after one season. I don't. I'm not really in favor of but Must be a fairly significant time job. i'm curious to see how season five goes
Making Art in the Modern Day
"In 1993 the group. The Breeders released this song Cannonball, and it started to climb the charts. The lead singer Kim deal was by that a pretty important person, alternative rock, not somebody who seems like they would later be featured in a book called The death of the artist. She's a big indie rock icon and has been for a good 30 years. Maybe more. William to Russell. It's is the author of the Death of the Artist in which he argues The arts world, which has always been hard to break into, and is always hard to squeeze a middle class living out of It's crumbling. As Kim deal has seen, you know she grew up in Dayton, and she lives back in Dayton. She's doing okay, she said to me, but again, fame does not equal wealth and she said to me, you know, I'm a coal miner, I'ma steal man. I'm just another person whose industry is gone. Obsolete. The perplexing part about that door is wit says, is that while Cole is not used in the same widespread way that it once was in America, we still listen to music quite a bit. And it's still produces a ton of money. But not much of that money goes into artist pockets. Instead, lots of it goes to the tech companies that bring you the music. These companies are too powerful. They can dictate terms, especially to independent artists and even tow labels and publishers because there's so much bigger and so much more powerful, and we need to do something about that power. We need to reduce that power. Then there is the notion that we can all record her own songs with tools on our Apple computer and People we can break through the noise. But sister Jesuits That's mostly a pipe dream, one that has gotten way too much traction like this is a profoundly irresponsible message to be disseminated, and it's been disseminated with all the marketing power of Silicon Valley. Still, he acknowledges that Tech has in some ways widened the playing field. It's increased access, even if that's no really consolation to those who Ping to turn art. Into a living. My argument is not that the Internet has been terrible for the arts. In every respect. I think it's been terrible for working artists financially. It's done a lot of good things, and one of the things that's done is that it has democratized creation, and I think it's great for a lot of people. I mean, I'm a big fan of amateur creativity and people making their music and people writing their books. But there's a big difference between that and serious. I'm gonna just say it's serious, talented, dedicated artists who make the stuff that the rest of us actually want to read and listen to. I mean, that's the issue, right is like, Think about it. First of all, think about how much time you spend in an average day consuming art, meaning every kind of art music and narrative television and books and everything. Probably several hours. And then think about how much of that art is created by amateurs who just put their stuff out there. Probably none. But in any case, maybe at best, very little. So God bless all the millions of people who want to do this and put their songs online. This is not the way to have a culture. And it's also not the way to have an arts economy. Are there break spots You mentioned television and ah, I for all people over the last 68 months, we're doing a lot more television watching. Not that we weren't doing plenty before. Are there places for screenwriters or things that that have bossom DH because of technology because of streaming services like Netflix, and I'II bet Amazon in the TV business and on and on Yeah, There's no question that television has blossomed, You know, not just in terms of the numbers of shows, but aesthetically artistically, right? I mean around 2000. We got the Sopranos, and there was a 1999 the same years Napster and then all these terrific shows on HBO and Showtime and L. Amazon and Netflix and Lulu. And it's great. I mean, TV is the one art that's that's confident. That's blossoming. As you said, Why is this happening? It's not because we can get TV on streaming versus our television sets. It's because we pay for it. We pay a lot for it. I mean, if you add up the money that goes to television in your cable bill, Amazon Prime Netflix, HBO Max ESPN, plus all the money that each of us is paying every month. That's flowing through the system, and that's why television is flourishing. That's why movie stars and movie directors and screenwriters have migrated from movies to television because that's where the artistic Opportunities are if somebody does the television what Napster and now Spotify have done to music that's going to disappear. Overnight. Okay, People are not going to you know, Nicole Kidman is not going to do a TV series for 10 bucks. And maybe that's when people will realize what's been happening across the arts. I wonder what you see ahead. I mean, obviously. You know, when you talked about this notion of sea and like the death of the artist that was even before, as we talked about like that arts in many ways, kind of shut down for several months. What is the way forward? I don't know that there's a good answer. But let me let me say this in the last few decades already something we now call the food movement has arisen where people have realised, you know, we're eating a lot of processed food, reading a lot of fast food. It's bad for us is bad for animals. It's bad for the planet. It's bad for the people who make the food for us. We need to consume in a more responsible way. So people have started to pay more for food, and we've Started to restructure the food system a little bit around the edges, then, more recently, the same thing with clothing. People call it fast fashion like like fast food, and we're trying to be more conscious consumers of you know, cheap clothing that's made in places like Vietnam and Bangladesh. I think we need the same kind of movement for art. Because now we have what I call fast Art. Because this stuff has to be produced fast if you're going to make enough To make a living. At the very least, you have to make a lot and it's produced cheaply and it's consumed in haste. Music, text, visual images moving images, everything. So Yeah, I do think that we need to become more conscious consumers and pay what we can but also like with food and fashion. Larger structural changes also need to be made and the more conscious we are as consumers and the more we are aware of. The need for these changes and demand them from our public officials. And again, That's especially going to mean taking on big attack, which we now have so many reasons to do this, I think has the potential to maybe turn things around.
Anne Heche Blacklisted For Ellen DeGeneres Relationship
"And hey, sh claims her relationship with ellen degeneres ruined her career. Listen to what she said before getting unfortunately eliminated last night on ABC's dancing with the stars. My Movie Premiere Volcano I had told them that I was taking ellen is my date I was told if I I would lose. My. Fox. contract. At that moment she took my hand and said, do what they say.

Nicole Kidman: Tom Cruise and I were ‘happily married’ while making ‘Eyes Wide Shut’
"Why did Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman really league get divorce Nicole finally speaking out about those rumors a lot of people thought their movie eyes wide shut led to their split. But the Cole says, that's just simply not true. She tells the New York Times they were happily married while filming the movie. They would even go go kart racing three am after a long day one. Okay. But she did add quote maybe I don't have the ability to look back and dissect it or I'm not willing to I laugh at that just and I was like he's roasts me are you surprised that Nicole is talking about this now. Sipping straight away he's about to unleash all jump in. I feel like she has a lot to say. A. Lot of this relationship and divorce for me. I couldn't get over the go karting fact because when you have a very big day on any set or you're working anyway, the loss you want to do is go carting. It takes a lot of energy romantic. It's very loud. Okay. Okay Unfortunately I feel like Nicole Kidman is probably right. She probably didn't feel like the relationship was going awry but that is why I don't date actors. They are trained to make you feel and make you see what they want you to feel and I will say this I don't know much about Tom Cruise. What I call a manic lover where they're really into a relationship or they're not, and once they're not into that relationship anymore or anything they just cut it. You're be you know those people. Relationship with them and they're like Oh my God, I love you. I want to be with you all the time and then when we had a bump in the road I need to go.
