10th Anniversary: A SERIOUS MAN

"I have never seen a film that mixes laugh-out-loud comedy so intimately with dead serious philosophical questioning. It packs so much into its short runtime. " - Dr strange

"This movie is one of my favorites - Michael Stuhlbarg the biggest reason, he's so heartbreakingly fantastically good in everything." -Rebecca

Would you rather?

It's our time-wasting habit of sharing fav Instagram posts of the weeks via celeb fantasy questions. SO...Would you rather

... play on the red carpet with Audra McDonald and Mary Testa (and Billy Porter sorta) ?
... hot tub it with Grant Gustin in Mexico?
... enjoy fresh avocados with Zooey Deschanel?
... watch a Toronto Raptors game with Dan Levy?
... get political at LifeBall in Vienna with Lea Delaria & Alan Cumming?
... hit the drive-in theater with Jenny Slate?
... go backstage with U2 at an Elton John concert?
... snuggle with Katee Sackhoff? 
... check out old Elvis memorabilia with Baz Luhrmann?
... practice "red carpet self care" with Jena Malone?  

Pictures are after the jump to help you decide. 

Had so much fun at the Tony Awards and took fun pics with new and old friends but this one was my favorite. Me and the iconic Mary Testa taking a pic with the train of @theebillyporter ‘s gown while he was doing the red carpet. Maturity...we has it. 

Sad to leave it behind.

That feeling when you cut open the perfect avocado 🥑




Go see it this weekend, pets! @secretlifeofpets ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Thanks for stopping by my gig in Dublin last night, @u2. Love you guys ❤️ #EltonFarewellTour 📷: @bengibsonphoto

It’s not that I don’t give a fuck. But rather it’s that I allow myself to enjoy the process in my own damn way. Now , as a woman that knows the ins and the outs of a red carpet , I simply allow myself to have the kind of fun that makes me smile. I dress a thousand ways, collaborating and being inspired by a team that I respect and feel fully seen by. I step into the space of metamorphosis like a child does with a new word that opens the imagination. I play. I create. I allow. I don’t judge myself nor do I allow the weight of not always being perfect to smudge the taste of borrowed perfection for a certain evening. I paint my face , I oil my body , I have a glass of wine , I surrender to simply being a body in a frame. I talk to the photographers, I take my own damn time , I angle my body to create the kinds of images I wanna take of myself. As a photographer, I try and bring my own camera and when I step on to the carpet , I make a small agreement with myself , the first shot is mine. I teeter tottered on to this black carpet and instantly saw this holy sun streak. I did not meet the eyes of the other photographers yet, I set my camera up and put the self timer on and walked into that golden beacon of light and posed for my own damn self. Something , I imagine , I would share with my child’s child someday. Some secret part of me that not everyone gets to look at. I walked back to my camera , handed it over to my lovely handler, and then introduced myself to the line up. Eyes up and open. Inviting them in. Saying, without saying , this is your time my loves , ask what you want of me. Be gentle and kind. And I’ll give you everything I can without dropping my own self advocacy . Because honey, if your not looking out for your self love then nobody else knows where to look either. Whom ever caught this very tender and sacred act of mine, I appreciate that. For my 35mm film will not be developed for weeks. #ramblingsofanactor #redcarpetselfcare

Let me guess who everyone will pick

June 13, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterTom G

Didn't the woman with Alan Cumming appear in The First Wives Club in a club scene with Bette and Goldie,

June 13, 2019 | Unregistered Commentermarkgordonuk

Yeah, so dibs on Grant Gustin.

June 13, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterJohn T

Mark -- i believe so yes. They usually call on Lea for the lesbian cameos as a fairly famous butch lesbian :)

June 13, 2019 | Registered CommenterNATHANIEL R

The black T guy with caption "The lesbians are coming"
F*** Trump ! ROFL !

June 13, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterTommy

Hang out with Jenny Slate, if only to talk her into more like Obvious Child, less like Secret Life of Pets. Man,

June 13, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterJames from Ames

Damn Grant Gustin. What a view.

Anyways, even though I don't care about basketball, I'd pick Dan Levy because his show is perfection and I need to talk to someone who created that perfect show. Plus scoop on its final season!

June 13, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterRyan T.

Looks like there was a production team helping Zooey cut that avocado.

June 13, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterBiggs

Lea Delaria and Alan Cumming, obviously. FUCK TRUMP indeed!

June 13, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterRob

tony awards red carpet with audra and mary!

June 13, 2019 | Unregistered Commenterpar

Kinda surprised that Grant Gustin didn’t caption his photo “The Flash”.

June 13, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterBrevity

I had to google Grant Gustin to even know who he was. I'm here for the icons - U2 and Elton, but I'd like to go shopping with Baz on the way.

June 13, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterSuzanne

Not just Dan Levy, Patrick and Alexis too! Winner winner.

June 13, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterSawyer

Everything else that isn't Jena Malone can fuck off. Not only would I be her camera operator but I would be her bitch. After all, SHE'S THE BEST IN THE WORLD BITCH!!!!!


June 13, 2019 | Unregistered Commenterthevoid99

@thevoid99 holy shit dude. I have no idea why Jenna Slate drives me crazy but I was not ready for that picture. And its so weird that this website is name dropping things literally and figuratively close to home for me. Im from Toronto and everyone is going nuts for the Raptors. And Im a huge fan of heavy metal, and a few months ago someone reviewed Lords of Chaos, a movie about the uppity little shit who popularized black metal. Fun times when worlds collide.

June 13, 2019 | Unregistered Commenterkris01

James from Ames - I was thinking the exact same thing. I love Jenny Slate but I wouldn’t sit through that shit again for anyone. I think I’ll have to go with Katee Sackhoff & the puppy. If only to snuggle the puppy :)

June 13, 2019 | Unregistered Commenterchoog

i'm going to the game with Dan and his crew. And fuck Baz! Get your ass back to work man! Even his misses have enough in them to make them endlessly fascinating.

June 14, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterVal

Val -- that is back to work. He's making a film about Elvis next.

June 14, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterNATHANIEL R

I'm with Suzanne. ICONS!!! Plus, i can't afford tickets for Elton John. Even the Nosebleeds in L A are over $400 bucks.

June 14, 2019 | Unregistered Commenterforever1267

Well no one is a greater fan of men's butts than me, but the pic suffices.. I'm going with Lea DeLaria and Alan Cumming at the LifeBall (which I had to google). Lea is almost too much sometimes, but politically we're on the same wavelength. And having seen Alan in Cabaret videos and knowing some background on him, he would be equally interesting to hang out with.

June 16, 2019 | Unregistered Commenterrrrich7

Oh, yeah. Grant Gustin's naked butt in that hot tub. No contest.
