Stein often referred to Toklas as her “wifey” and addressed her as “baby precious.” Writing late into the night, the author liked to leave notes next to the pillow for Alice to find in the morning, signed “Y.D,” short for “Your Darling.” In an ideal, civilized world of human rights and equality, theirs would have been a marriage — and it would have been one of the happiest and most exemplary in literary history.

In 2009, Thomas took the FIU job and said he was going to donate his first year of salary back to the school because he “did not come [to Florida International] for the money.” This was probably because he had a side hustle with the Knicks lined up, which he had to back out of because it was against NBA rules. Then he led FIU to a 26-65 record over three seasons.

Kirsten Dunst 1982 – The Next Best Thing to Tom Cruise Cake

Image result for kirsten dunst tom cruise

Dunst famously described her first on-screen kiss—with Brad Pitt, no less—as “disgusting” on the Sept. 23, 2014 episode of Conan. She was much more verbose about the on-screen kiss shortly before the film was released on Nov. 11, 1994.

When asked by Kristine McKenna what the hardest part of making the movie was, Dunst said: “Kissing Brad Pitt! It was horrible and I hated it. Brad and Tom [Cruise] were like my big brothers on the set, so it was like kissing your big brother–totally gross!”

Pitt told her: “How do you think I feel? I have to kiss a little girl.”

https://www.amazon.com/Interview-Vampire-Chronicles-Brad-Pitt/dp/B00004RFFS

It is over two decades since Kirsten Dunst starred alongside Tom Cruise in Interview With The Vampire – but Tom is still conscientious about sending a Christmas present every year.

Even better: Every year, without fail, he sends something called “The Cruise Cake”.

Speaking on The Graham Norton Show, Kirsten, 33, said: “He sends me a cake every Christmas. We are very excited to receive ‘The Cruise Cake’.

“He has kept it going for a really long time, which is impressive. I’ve never given any one a gift for that length of time except for my parents.”

http://focusfeatures.com/phantom-thread

Daniel Day-Lewis Refuses To Break Character And Lived In The Wilderness For Half A Year

Daniel Day-Lewis is one of the most notorious method actors who has ever lived, because he consistently does batshit crazy things to get into character for his roles. For example, when preparing for his role as Abraham Lincoln in the 2012 film … um, Lincoln, Day-Lewis inhabited his interpretation of Honest Abe 24/7. He would tell water cooler jokes about the Civil War as if it were currently being covered on CNN. He also insisted on speaking in his carefully crafted Abraham Lincoln voice at all times, regardless of whether he was rehearsing a scene or talking about the most recent episode of Mad Men.

Day-Lewis would even send text messages to his co-star Sally Field, who played Lincoln’s wife, Mary Todd, as if Abraham Lincoln was the one sending the messages. He made sure all of his texts used the language and grammar of Civil War-era America, which Field would then have to attempt to reciprocate, despite the fact that people from the mid-19th century would chew their own lips off in helpless insanity after laying eyes on an iPhone 6.

Strawberry Cheesecake Milkshake

Marsellus Wallace asks Vincent to go out with his wife while he’s away, and Mia Wallace, played by Uma Thurman in a pert Louise Brooks–style wig, takes him to Jack Rabbit Slim’s—an homage to the 1950s with booths made from tail-finned cars and Ed Sullivan, Ricky Nelson, and Marilyn Monroe impersonators waiting tables. Vincent and Mia order food from a Buddy Holly–look-alike waiter (played by Steve Buscemi)— a “Douglas Sirk” steak and a “vanilla Coke” for Vincent, and a “Durward Kirby” burger and the famous “Five Dollar Milk Shake” for Mia. Despite the unsavory aspects of both characters, the date has a certain amount of innocence. It’s a throwback to a simpler time, when girls and boys drank milk shakes and had to be home by curfew.

SCHINDLER MADE MORE THAN ONE LIST.

Seven lists in all were made by Oskar Schindler and his associates during the war, while four are known to still exist. Two are at the Yad Vashem in Israel, one is at the US Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C., and one privately owned list was unsuccessfully auctioned off via eBay in 2013.

The movie refers to the first two lists created in 1944, otherwise known as “The Lists of Life.” The five subsequent lists were updates to the first two versions, which included the names of more than 1000 Jews who Schindler saved by recruiting them to work in his factory.

John James Audubon (1785-1851) was not the first person to attempt to paint and describe all the birds of America (Alexander Wilson has that distinction), but for half a century he was the young country’s dominant wildlife artist. His seminal Birds of America, a collection of 435 life-size prints, quickly eclipsed Wilson’s work and is still a standard against which 20th and 21st century bird artists, such as Roger Tory Peterson and David Sibley, are measured.

On this, almost everyone was agreed: Al Pacino was looking like a disaster as Michael Corleone.

Shooting had begun in early 1971. Pacino recalls the Paramount suits looking at the rushes and saying: “What the hell is this kid doing? And he’s short to boot.” They thought he was delivering an “anemic” performance. The studio brass, Pacino says, “tried to fire me three times.”

There “was a movement not to have me in the part,” the 76-year-old actor recalls, sitting on the porch of his rental house in the flats of Beverly Hills. “I didn’t want me in the part.”
