David Mallett Opens New York Salon at The Webster

David Mallett is bringing his signature brand of Parisian-chic hairdressing to New York.
Mallett, an Australian native whose taxidermy-filled eponymous salon in the Second Arrondissement is something of a fashion insider institution in Paris, is set to open a third location — his first in the U.S. and first outside Paris — on the top floor of Laure Hériard Dubreuil’s The Webster in SoHo, on Oct. 16.
The 1,600-square-foot space will operate as a full-service, eight-chair salon, with color, cutting, styling and treatment services overseen by Mallett himself and staffed by longtime employees of his Paris salons, including two hairdressers, two colorists and a client director. Mallett, who opened his second outpost at The Ritz Paris in 2016, will split his time between New York and Paris going forward.
The salon on the fifth floor of The Webster was designed by French architect Charles Zana to replicate the style of Mallett’s Paris salons, which are inspired by French-style craftsmanship. Lamps, furniture and other decor were custom-made for The Webster by François Pouenat, a fifth-generation French artisan metalworker. In a nod to his native Australia, Mallett partnered with Australia-based Dinosaur Designs’ Louise Olsen on accent pieces. Mallett purposefully to designed the New York space

David Koma RTW Spring 2019

David Koma has been obsessed with Pedro Almodóvar’s films for a very long time. “All About My Mother” was the inspiration behind his very first collection — at age 14. For this season, he rewatched “Talk To Her” and “Volver” and was moved to explore Spanish dance, specifically the dynamic flamenco, as the starting point for his spring offering.
Koma put his own, minimal, all-out sexy spin on the drama, ruffled skirts and polka dots associated with the dance, refining ruffles into structural peplums and translating dots into sheer spot mesh or shimmery plexi embellishments, which winked along the edges of shoulder seams, cutouts and hemlines.
Carmen Amaya, the late Romani flamenco dancer who would wear trousers in her performances to emphasize movement, was the inspiration behind the lineup’s terrific trousers. Also calling to mind styles worn by matadors, they were cut high on the waist, with a soft flare created by split hems.
His palette, as always, was on the noir side, freshened by white and lilac. Pieces in neon yellow or bright green looked better head-to-toe rather than paired with or trimmed in black, which made those looks seem a bit labored.
Unusually for such a specific reference, the best looks here

David Spade Reveals He Stopped Talking to His Absentee Father After Becoming a Dad Himself

Becoming a parent changed David Spade‘s life — and his own family dynamics.

In his newly released audiobook, A Polaroid Guy in a Snapchat World, the actor and comedian opens up about how his relationship with his father Wayne, who goes by the nickname Sam, changed after he welcomed his own child, daughter Harper, with former Playboy Playmate Jillian Grace in 2008.

“This one’s going to be a little tricky — this is a chapter about my dad, and the way that it fits into this audiobook is I’m a dad now,” he says. “And the difference — and why it caused some complications with my own dad — is because he was sort of a ne’er-do-well, which is putting it mildly. I think f—up is more on the nose.”

Spade, 54, describes his father as “cool and funny,” but also “a bit of a skirt-chaser, times a thousand million,” and “a bit of boozy Suzy.” When he was 4 and his brothers Bryan and Andy Spade were 8 and 6, respectively, Spade says his father suddenly vanished from their family home in Michigan.

Growing up, Spade says he saw his father about two or three times a year.

“We’d be sitting at the doors with our bags because he would call us and say he wanted to see us,” says the actor. “What I didn’t realize back then was that it was a control thing. We never had his phone number. He would call us when he felt like it.”

Nevertheless, the actor says the duo maintained a relationship and even moved in together in Arizona at one point. But years later, when Spade became a father himself, everything changed.

“I have a daughter now, and she came out of a situation with a girl I was dating and it was not planned,” Spade says. “And I get angry, because my brothers and I were planned. Now, I’m so happy that I have a daughter and she’s the best thing in my life, but I couldn’t picture my daughter being sick and calling me and me not answering.”

RELATED: David Spade Opens Up About Daughter Harper

“Or just calling her without any way for her to call me,” he explains. “That would be too much, it would be too rough. So when I had her, I got this new tidal wave of resentment towards my dad because of his irresponsible behavior and manipulative mean streak. So I stopped talking to him.”

“I know it sounds crazy, but I just thought, ‘Holy s—. You really played your cards the way you did when we were kids,’ ” Spade continues. “I mean, I like to have fun too, but it can’t be 24/7 and literally nothing else. The only thing my dad really did was give me an excuse to be nuts. I can always cry and go, ‘It’s my dad’s fault. He left me when I was 4! Now I’m crazy.’ ”

Though he has not divulged any recent details of his co-parenting relationship with Grace, Spade posts photos and videos of Harper on Instagram and sometimes shares sweet anecdotes about her while appearing on talk shows. In 2015, he joked about navigating the ropes of parenthood while appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

“I’m new at this — how long ’til I can school her in tic-tac-toe?” he said. “Because I am really good at it, but I’m faking it so she can win. But now I’m getting frustrated because she thinks I’m dumb. She laughs so hard when she wins and then I think, ‘Well, I could beat you.’ I want to say that, but I don’t.”

“I think when she turns 6, I’m really going to turn it on,” Spade quipped. “I’ll start really winning a lot. I’m going to sweep every category.”

Victoria Beckham ‘Never Gave Up’ on Marriage to David ‘When Someone Else Might Have,’ Says Source

As Victoria and David Beckham approach their 19th anniversary, the couple is once again battling rumors of trouble in their marriage – and speaking out to squash the speculation.

“Over the years, Victoria has fought hard for her marriage, and for David,” a source tells PEOPLE. “She never gave up when someone else might have.”

After shooting down social media speculation about a divorce, the former model and designer, who shares four children with the soccer star, 43, spoke openly about how she balances her personal and professional life.

“I try really, really hard. I try hardest to be the best mother,” Victoria, 44, said at the Forbes Women’s Summit in New York City on Tuesday, according to Hello!.

“I am trying to be the best wife and the best professional. When I get home I try to put the phone down and spend time with the children and spend time with David,” she added.

“I have the support of an incredible husband,” Victoria continued. “We really are equal with everything we do at home with the children. When I’m away he’s the one doing the school run and doing the cooking.”

Her comments come just weeks after her and David’s rep told PEOPLE that the two were not heading for divorce.

“What nonsense. Journalist Chinese whispers and fake news fueled by social media,” the rep said. “There is no impending statement, no divorce!”

The power couple, who recently attended the royal wedding together, share children Brooklyn, 19, Romeo, 15, Cruz, 13 and daughter Harper, 6.

The duo met in the Manchester United players’ lounge in 1997. David was playing for the team at the time, but had not yet become one of the team’s most recognizable stars.

He has said he knew Victoria was ‘The One’ before even meeting her in person. While watching a Spice Girls music video on TV, Beckham proclaimed to a pal: “See the girl in the dark short dress? I’m going to marry her.”

The designer echoed her hubby’s statement: “Completely love at first sight. He told me he went home and wrote my number on so many other things in case he lost it.”

The duo married in a lavish 1999 wedding at an Irish castle, and despite often praising each other in interviews, they went on to endure speculation about the state of their union for nearly two decades.

“We’ve had our ups and downs,” she admitted to Vogue in 2013, adding, “but we’re so proud of each other.”

Two years later, the former Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer said she had effectively learned how to tune out the haters.

“I have never listened to, or commented on, the rumors about any aspect of my life,” she told Grazia magazine in regards to murmurs about a split.

“I am blessed to have a wonderful husband and beautiful, healthy, happy children,” she continued. “Yes, we travel a lot with our respective businesses and charitable commitments, but we always make time for each other as a couple and as a family. David and I have nothing to prove. We love each other, look out for each other and are strong as both partners and parents.”

She also spoke about how much she admires her husband. “My husband constantly inspires me and guides me – he has done so much good work,” she said of the man who serves as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. “I look up to him and have the utmost respect and admiration for all that he has achieved.”

In 2016, Victoria included some marriage advice in a letter addressed to her 18-year-old self published in British Vogue. “In marriage: have patience. Bite your tongue. Be supportive. And preserve a bit of mystique,” she said.

“Never let yourself go completely (at least brush your hair, clean your teeth, have a bit of a brow going on because you will always want him to look at you and feel attracted),” Victoria added.

Last year, the couple renewed their vows in a relatively private ceremony. In an interview with BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs, David opened up about the special day, while also admitting that “marriage is difficult at times” as he and his wife continue to work hard at their relationship.

“We have renewed our vows since ,” said David, who didn’t elaborate on when the ceremony took place. “It was a lot more private, about six people there in our house.”

The former soccer star said the secret to their 18-year marriage is making his relationship with Victoria a priority and working together through any hard times.

“We’re a strong family unit. We’ve got strong parents. We were brought up with the right values,” he said. “Of course you make mistakes over the years, and we all know marriage is difficult at times. It’s about working through it.”

He added, “We know each other better than anybody. People have talked about, ‘Do we stay together because it’s a brand?’ Of course not. We stay together because we love each other, because we have four amazing children.

“Do you go through tough times? Of course. That’s part of relationships. It’s part of marriages. It’s part of having children. It’s part of having responsibilities.”

Earlier this month, as rumors of a split began to circulate on social media, Victoria sent her “love” to David on Instagram with a photo of Harper.

“Morning cuddles x So much love 🙏🏻 We love and miss u @davidbeckham 💕💕💕💕,” she wrote in the caption.

David Koma Resort 2019

Like many others, David Koma has been influenced by the Eighties resurgence that’s been making waves on the catwalks and shop floors alike.
But the London-based designer managed to stand out in his interpretation of the hugely popular decade, making it his own by blending subtle Eighties references — a puff sleeve here, a crystal-embellished zip there — with his signature graphic lines and flair for modernism.
The result was a collection filled with desirable pieces that had the glamour and drama of the past and the sense of ease that speaks to today’s consumer.
Inspired by Helmut Newton’s swimwear photographs, Koma re-created his popular minidresses with curved, sporty necklines and ultra-thin shoulder straps. He also added a generous dose of sparkle with oversize crystals, silver sequins and Plexiglass. Heavy embellishment can be dangerous territory, but by keeping a monochromatic color palette and using the crystals or sequins to create graphic lines, Koma maintained a fresh, modern look.
Among the standouts were a white one-shouldered gown featuring a flashy sequinned side panel that aims to highlight the body, a black-and-white tuxedo dress with puffed silk-organza sleeves and black minidresses mixing graphic cutouts and soft draping.
Elsewhere, Koma continued to play with contrasts in a series

David Koma RTW Fall 2018

David Koma said he became “obsessed” with the ethnographic photography of 19th-century artist Edward Curtis, which led him to explore the traditional dress of Native American tribes and interpret their folklore and cultures for fall.
But when you put prevalent notions of what comprises the traditional dress of tribes like the Apache or Chinookan Indians into Koma and pull the lever, what comes out is far from a pastiche of silver and turquoise belt-buckles, feather headdresses and fringed suede chaps. Working in a pared-back palette of black, white, red and violet, he translated those tribal codes through a Sixties Mod lens into a lineup of sexy, sassy clothes, marrying satin-shiny calf hair with hand-embroidered mesh, leather and shearling.
Nods to gaucho dress could be seen in the flared leather skirt and black turtleneck, worn with Western-inspired calf-hair boots; in the long sleeveless coat layered over a white knit and tall boots, and in the black calf-hair jean jacket, trimmed with black, white and red fringing.
A feathered headdress was reimagined into macramé embroidery, and sparkly crystal or laser-cut mirror embellishment and appeared as feathers of varying scale on red-carpet-ready dresses. And those turquoise and silver belt buckles? Koma adapted them into shiny circular clasps

Fashion Illustrator Jeanette Getrost Plans Phone Cases, Packaging, Talk at Camp David

BETWEEN THE LINES: In New York for a Q&A at Spring Place and a happy hour at Camp David in Brooklyn on Thursday, Los Angeles-based fashion illustrator Jeanette Getrost discussed how the medium is coming back to life.
About 20 will be at the NYFW event at Spring and the crowd will be considerably livelier at Camp David, the co-working space for creatives started by Milk Studios’ Mazdack Rassi and Erez Shternlich. Getrost chalked up the renewed interest in fashion illustration to social media giving artists a platform to get their work out. In addition, “People get a little tired of new media and have this yearning for the past and they want things to be handmade. You can see the same Instagram posts on a daily basis but with artists they are creating something new that you’ve never seen before.”
A few years ago she worked for “Project Runway” one season, sketching the winning looks from each episode for a social media campaign. Next week she will be live sketching at a Ferragamo event in Los Angeles.

Bridget Foley’s Diary: Ronan’s Right (Again): Thank You, David Remnick

Ronan Farrow is grateful to David Remnick. He shouldn’t be alone. All who believe that traditional journalism must continue in its role as society’s guardian, holding the powerful accountable, should share Farrow’s gratitude to The New Yorker editor in chief.
This is not to downplay Farrow’s remarkable fortitude, guts and journalistic audacity in sticking to, and finding an outlet for, his brilliantly reported, real-life Harvey Weinstein horror story after it was passed on by NBC. (On Tuesday, Farrow got at least one write-in vote at the polls, for Manhattan district attorney, from yours truly, galled at the notion of Cyrus Vance Jr.’s unopposed candidacy. In his initial piece, Farrow reported that Vance could have charged Weinstein and didn’t, to the chagrin of some NYPD types.)
That Farrow jumped into the story and refused to let it die testifies to his belief in his profession and his own mettle. “To not run this story would be a dereliction of my ethical duties,” he told CNN in one of his many television appearances since his original story broke. That, in a series of tweets on Tuesday, he addressed the reality — that he couldn’t have done it alone — speaks to his professional character.

David Donahue Pops Up at Rothmans

The David Donahue pop-up at Rothmans. 

David Donahue is tired of keeping a low profile.
The men’s wear brand has been around since 1973 and is carried in such high-end retailers as Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and more than 200 specialty stores. But siblings Rob and Suzy Donohue, who now run the company started by their father, are hoping to heighten the brand’s visibility.
The company started as a men’s accessories manufacturer but over the years has expanded into all categories including suits, sweaters, jeans and outerwear.
The first move to get its name better known came in 2016 when the brand started dressing the NBC Sports football commentators. That relationship will expand into David Donahue dressing the sportscasters at the Winter Olympics in South Korea next year as well, Rob Donohue revealed.
On Thursday night, the brand took another step forward by opening its first pop-up shop inside of the Rothmans men’s store on Union Square in Manhattan.
Rothmans’ president Ken Giddon said this is the first time in the history of the store’s rotating pop-up program that the inventory was sparse before the party. “It started selling since we put it in,” he said. “This is a great opportunity to showcase a

David Koma RTW Spring 2018

Who knew calm and mild David Koma is a fan of bombastic MMA star Conor McGregor? The admiration came out in a spring collection inspired by sports, mostly boxing, which Koma married to his leg-revealing, body-hugging silhouettes.
This unlikely pairing yielded a dynamic collection, more freedom of movement than usual, and some interesting fabric mixes. Yes, there were boxing trunks — with giant ruffles flying off both sides — made of an amalgam of scuba and napa leather fabric, and a striped, athletic tank dress of flocked silk tulle. Elsewhere, an asymmetric sports bra was sewn into a high-waisted pencil skirt with a big ruffle cascading down one leg, essentially creating a one-piece number in sturdy, technical jersey. Koma said the ruffles, which got a lot bigger as the evening looks emerged (though he insisted they were very light to carry), came to him while staring at the wavy sculpture of Kerry Vesper he’s got at home.
There was also a hooded boxing robe made entirely of lace, and skimpy sports jersey dresses done up with sparkling beads. They were a direct inspiration from the ridiculously opulent Money Belt, complete with more than 4,000 diamonds, emeralds and sapphires, which Floyd Mayweather got

David Hart Men’s Spring 2018

David Hart didn’t stray too far out of his wheelhouse this season, offering up a colorful, retro-themed collection of tailored clothing and sportswear. This time around the line was inspired by tourism to Cuba, as evidenced by the tropical-print camp shirts, boldly striped sport coats and knits and brightly hued suits.
Hart said he hasn’t had a chance yet to visit the island nation (and he might not get to given President Trump’s reimposition of restrictions on tourism to the country) but instead based his collection on Cuban references he found in “cinema, music and photos.”
Sharply tailored slim-cut suits were offered in rainbow hues that included bright red, lime green, burnt orange and milk chocolate-brown. They were complemented by a more subdued palette of navy and burgundy — all serving to showcase Hart’s tailoring expertise.
“I love color,” Hart said. “So I took great earth tones and put them together with muted colors.”
The bright tones were also visible in the more casual part of the collection, with yellow, pink and cream linen shirts that looked like they belonged on a warm summer beach.
Hart showcased two women’s looks at his presentation — “My background was in women’s wear,” the designer said, “so it

David Koma Resort 2018

David Koma treaded on dangerous ground for his latest resort outing: the Georgia-born, London-based designer experimented with bold embellishments, from feathers to Swarovski crystals and mirrored plexiglass and added flashes of neon to his color palette.
He embroidered feathers at the slits of his signature miniskirts and the ends of body-hugging dresses to create a sense of movement, while rounded metal-framed plexiglass was used all over cutout dresses, jumpsuits or midi skirts in various forms and sizes. Elsewhere, embellishment was layered, like in the case of a fuchsia dress featuring softer pink crystals on top of the mirrored plexiglass.
Piling on embellishments could definitely risk looking too heavy, but in Koma’s hands the pieces looked modern and highly desirable.
He maintained a sense of modernity through graphic motifs, inspired by the circular art of Sophie Taeuber-Arp. These came in the form of evenly placed, rounded black satin buttons or plexi mirrors, rounded cutouts and subtle curved hems. The fabrications in the range were also in line with the range’s graphic direction; among the highlights was a ruffled dress in silk tulle featuring flocked polka dots.
Koma also had the traditional notion of a cruise collection in mind and wanted to create pieces that are

James Corden Roasts David Beckham For Matching Outfits With Posh

We’ve all committed a few fashion faux pas we’d rather not recall. But James Corden isn’t letting David Beckham forget his for a second. 

On his show this week, the comedian busted out a throwback photo series of David and his wife Victoria Beckham in coordinating outfits, in anticipation of the couple’s 18th wedding anniversary next month.

Corden was a merciless fashion cop, poking fun at the matching purple ensembles the couple wore on their wedding day in 1999.

He also had choice words for some some revealing pants-and-top combos they sported on the red carpet two years later.

Beckham refused to apologize for the duo’s outfits of yore.

“I’m not saying I regret them because at the time, it felt right,” he told Corden. “Now, I’m not so sure.”

See some of the pair’s highlights ― or are they lowlights? ― below and in the video above.

At Work: Retail Architect David Montalba Dresses for Comfort, Client

David Montalba, founder of Montalba Architects in Santa Monica, Calif., believes clothes and buildings should fit like a favorite pair of jeans or T-shirt.
“It’s about creating a comfortable environment, a place where people can be dynamic. Similarly with clothes, you want to wear clothes that make you feel comfortable first and make the people around you feel comfortable, much like the designs we create,” says the award-winning 45-year-old, who has created retail stores in Los Angeles and other cities for Carolina Herrera, The Row, Reformation and Raquel Allegra, to name a few.
Like most people in his profession, Montalba wears either all black or all dark blue every day — not just to the office but in all aspects of his life. When asked whether he spends more on clothes for work or play, he said, “I don’t distinguish between the two.” What about on the weekend when he’s driving his kids to their sports games? “Then I’m just wearing my gym clothes, either a Lululemon shirt or NikeLab,” he says.

David Delfín, Spanish Designer, Dies at 46

MÁLAGA, Spain — Spanish designer David Delfín died Saturday at age 46. The cause of death, according to press reports, was brain cancer.
The designer was a popular figure in Málaga, which is the birthplace of Pablo Picasso and Antonio Banderas.
Delfín was considered the “enfant terrible” of Spanish fashion. On Sunday morning, Antonio Banderas shared his grief with his Facebook followers, saying that “all of Miami Fashion Week” was weeping over the well-liked designer’s death.
Born in Ronda in 1970 and raised in Marbella, Diego David Domínguez González, better known as David Delfín, died in Madrid, where he had founded the Daviddelfin brand, in association with the Postigo siblings (Deborah, Diego and Gorka), and his model-muse Bimba Bosé, who also died of cancer in January.
It takes a true aficionado to work out exactly how Bosé and Delfín, cousins several times removed, fit into the family tree of matador Luis Miguel Dominguín, her mother being Lucía González Bosé (a.k.a. Lucía Dominguín). Like his singer-actor-designer-ambassador-comrade in arms, Delfín had a taste for the spectacular.
His claim to fame was his very first Mercedes-Benz catwalk show in Madrid in 2002. In protest against the war in Afghanistan, the designer featured bare-breasted, noose-clad models with sacks on their

David S. Pumpkins Returned To ‘SNL’ And We Have Questions

When it comes to “Saturday Night Live” characters, David S. Pumpkins is one of the most bizarre and the most beloved in recent history. 

Played by Tom Hanks, the character ― a man in a pumpkin-print suit accompanied by two dancing skeletons ― was introduced to audiences when Hanks hosted “SNL” in October 2016. 

If you had any questions left unanswered, the return of Hanks as David S. Pumpkins or rather “David S. Pimpkins” in this case, you are unlikely to find them in this weekend’s “Rap Song,” which is a parody of overstuffed hip-hop collaborations.

Actually, we want to know what happened to Pumpkins’ two dancing skeletons.

Naomi Watts Had To Go To David Lynch’s House To Read Her ‘Twin Peaks’ Scripts

With the “Twin Peaks” countdown nearing its final hours, we still know almost nothing about what the revival of the eccentric ‘90s classic will entail. Neither does Naomi Watts, and she’s in the damn thing.

One of the many “Twin Peaks” rookies who will appear in the 18-episode limited series premiering Sunday on Showtime, Watts wasn’t sent a single script. She had to venture to co-creator David Lynch’s Los Angeles home to read her scenes. Even that was cagey: “If there were five or six lines said before I started speaking, they were crossed out ― blacked out completely,” Watts said Thursday during an interview for next month’s “The Book of Henry.” 

Since she was cast more than a year ago, Watts has had a “difficult” time safeguarding whatever secrets she does know. This was “next-level” confidentiality, but Watts was happy to “protect” Lynch’s “level of privacy.” It’s not her first Lynchian rodeo, after all ― Watts’ breakout moment was the director’s neo-noir psychodrama “Mulholland Drive.” 

The size of Watts’ role is unclear, especially considering how many other A-listers are joining the new season (Laura Dern, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jim Belushi, Michael Cera, Amanda Seyfried, Tim Roth, Ashley Judd, Ernie Hudson). Because Showtime did not release screeners for journalists and critics, all we know is that “Twin Peaks: The Return” picks up 25 years after the original series’ culmination, with Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle McLachlan) and other fixtures returning to deepen (and perhaps clarify?) the lingering mysteries surrounding Laura Palmer’s murder.  

Shooting in small-town Washington and parts of Southern California ― “strange places,” in Watts’ words ― helped avoid paparazzi shots that sometimes leak spoilers from film and television sets. “And it’s part of the fun,” Watts said. “The not knowing makes it fun. And you trust David because he is who he is. He’s unique. You give yourself over. He’s done it so brilliantly time and time again, and you just enjoy his little magical world that he’s creating.”

David Beckham Hits Shanghai for Kent & Curwen

SHANGHAI — David Beckham is bringing a touch of British heritage to Shanghai with the global launch of Kent & Curwen’s fall collection as well as a capsule line for Lane Crawford called Shanghai Club.
The British sports superstar and Kent & Curwen creative director David Kearns attended a lavish cocktail event, which was attended by Chinese model Hu Bing along with other Chinese KOLs and held at The Waterhouse at South Bund. They also launched the Shanghai Club capsule collection at a pop-up store in Lane Crawford.
This visit marked Beckham’s first appearance in China on behalf of the men’s wear brand and was part of the extended rollout of the fall collection, with the spring line, the first collaboration between Beckham and Kearns, already available in the country. Beckham is part owner of the British heritage men’s wear brand, which was founded in 1926, after an agreement was made between Seven Global, his joint venture with business partner Simon Fuller, and Global Brands Group Holding Ltd., a spin-off of Li & Fung at the end of 2014.

Duncan Jones Accepts BRIT Award for Dad David Bowie: This ‘Is for All the Kooks’

David Bowie‘s son Duncan Jones paid tribute to his late father’s legacy during the 2017 BRIT Awards on Wednesday, taking the stage to accept the icon’s posthumous award for MasterCard British album of the year.

“I lost my dad last year, but I also became a dad,” said Jones, 45, “and I was spending a lot of time after getting over the shock of trying to work out what would I want my son to know about his granddad.”

“And I think, it would be the same thing that most of my dad’s fans have taken over the last 50 years: he’s always been there supporting people who think they’re a little bit weird, or a little bit strange, a little bit different. And he’s always been there for them,” continued Jones.

Bowie – who died after a cancer battle in January 2016 – won the honor for his final album, Blackstar.

“This award is for all the kooks and all the people who make the kooks,” said Jones – whose mother is Bowie’s ex-wife, Angie Bowie.

David Cassidy Reveals He Is Battling Dementia: ‘A Part of Me Always Knew This Was Coming’

David Cassidy is battling dementia.

The 66-year-old actor, widely known for his starring role as Keith Partridge on the 1970s series The Partridge Family, reveals to PEOPLE that he is fighting the memory loss disease.

Cassidy, who watched his grandfather battle the disease and witnessed his mother “disappear” into dementia until she died at age 89, tells PEOPLE of his diagnosis: “I was in denial, but a part of me always knew this was coming.”

Of his mother’s struggles, Cassidy recalls: “In the end, the only way I knew she recognized me is with one single tear that would drop from her eye every time I walked into the room. … I feared I would end up that way.”

Now that he’s come to terms with his condition, Cassidy has made the decision to stop touring as a musician to concentrate on his health and happiness. “I want to focus on what I am, who I am and how I’ve been without any distractions,” he says. “I want to love. I want to enjoy life.”

Cassidy’s revelation follows a roller coaster of personal ups and downs that the actor has faced in the past decade, including a show in Agoura Hills, California, this past weekend where Cassidy repeatedly struggled to remember lyrics to songs he had been singing for nearly 50 years.

In November 2010, he was charged with a DUI and was subsequently charged with the same offense in August 2013 and January 2014. A month after his third arrest, his wife, Sue Shifrin-Cassidy, filed for divorce. In February 2015, the actor filed for bankruptcy and was charged following his hit-and-run eight months later in October 2015.

The ’70s teen heartthrob has also battled substance abuse issues, including a stint in rehab in 2014.

Cassidy, who received an Emmy nomination for his appearance on Police Story in 1978, was most recently seen on TV in a 2013 episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

TMZ posted a fan-shot video of the former “Partridge Family” star, who repeatedly slurred his words as both spoke and sang, told the crowd long, rambling stories, and frequently forgot the lyrics to his songs. The 66-year-old was also seen falling backward off the stage with his guitar strapped around his body.

Another fan-shot video captured the singer hitting himself in the face with a microphone after he struggled to remove it from its stand. 

Cassidy announced earlier this month that he was retiring after 50 years in show business, which he reiterated to the crowd at Saturday’s show.

The singer previously admitted he struggles with alcoholism, and has been arrested for driving under the influence multiple times

David Bowie’s Red Ziggy Stardust Hair Was Initially A Huge Disaster

The image of David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust is etched eternally in the minds and hearts of millions of people around the world. The story of how that hair came to be is less familiar, but it’s equally as captivating. 

Suzi Ronson took to the stage in April 2016 to talk about how she came to go on tour with Bowie and his band, a whirlwind story that recently aired on The Moth Radio Hour. It all started with a simple haircut. 

While working as a hairstylist at a local salon in her staid London neighborhood, Ronson met Mrs. Jones, an older woman who came in for a weekly Thursday afternoon shampoo and set and often spoke about her son “David,” an artist who “sings in a band.”

That “David,” of course, turned out to be David Bowie, who had just released “Space Oddity.” A series of events landed Ronson in Bowie’s home to give his wife Angie Bowie a last-minute holiday cut. Ronson said Bowie, who had long blonde hair at the time, showed her an image of a female model in a magazine and asked her if she could cut his hair short and dye it red.

Ronson said she wasn’t sure she’d be able to pull off the look, though she told Bowie it was no problem. Unfortunately, the result was initially not the stiff, perfectly coiffed look we’re all familiar with.

Ronson said Bowie’s hair just flopped over to one side, to the dismay of them both. Explaining that the stylists had “no product in those days,” she ended up trying an anti-dandruff treatment she had previously used on women at her salon that “set hair like stone.” Results achieved, she charged the Bowies two pounds for both haircuts and left.

You’ll want to hear the rest of this exciting story i the video above. Ronson’s tale is also featured in the upcoming book The Moth Presents: All These Wonders – True Stories About Facing The Unknown

‘#ForeverLove’: Iman Shares Loving Tribute to David Bowie on Her Late Husband’s Birthday

Nearly one year after her husband’s death, Iman is celebrating what would have been her husband’s 70th birthday.

On Sunday, the former supermodel took to Instagram to share a drawing of a young David Bowie in honor of his birthday on Jan. 8.

“Jan 8th #ForeverLove #BowieForever,” Iman, 61, captioned the photo.

In the days leading up to the one year anniversary of Bowie’s death and birthday, Iman shared tributes to her late husband. On Jan. 10, 2016, the music legend died after battling liver cancer.

Last September, Iman opened up publicly for the first time when she attended New York Fashion Week wearing a necklace with the name “David” on it.

“It’s just been a tough year, but I’m holding up,” she said, adding that she would wear the necklace “until my death.”

The model and the rocker married in Tuscany after two years together. In 2000, they welcomed their daughter, Alexandria “Lexi” Zahra Jones.

His widow and Lexi have remained largely out of the public eye since his death. In February, Iman was photographed for the first time since the the news of the music icon’s death broke when she stepped out in New York City to walk the dog they raised together; then, just days later, she took to social media to express her “love & gratitude” for the outpouring of support she received.

In April, just three months after losing her husband, Iman announced on Instagram her mother, Maryan Baadi, had also died.

David Bowie Didn’t Know Cancer Was Terminal Until Three Months Before Death

Days before the one-year anniversary of David Bowie’s death, a new documentary is shedding light on the singer’s final years before he lost an 18-month battle to liver cancer.  

Directed by Francis Whately, “David Bowie: The Last Five Years,” airing on BBC Two Saturday, follows the rock icon on his 2003 A Reality Tour, as well as throughout the production of his last studio album, “Blackstar.”

According to Johan Renck, the director for the music video of the album’s final single, “Lazarus,” the 69-year-old rock icon discovered his cancer was terminal only three months before his death, while he was still working on the video. 

According to the BBC, Renck explains in the documentary that he wasn’t made aware of Bowie’s diagnosis until after filming the video for “Lazarus,” which heavily features death and rebirth symbolism.

“I found out later that the week we were shooting is when he found out that it is over,” Renck said.

Despite the imagery that suggests Bowie was contemplating his own mortality through his music ― the video begins with the singer in a hospital bed with gauze covering his eyes ― the director denies that the music video had anything to do with his illness. The Guardian reports that Renck created the vision for “Lazarus” a week before learning of Bowie’s diagnosis. 

“David said: ‘I just want to make it a simple performance video,’” Renck recalled. “I immediately said, ‘The song is called Lazarus, you should be in the bed.’ … To me it had to do with the biblical aspect of it … it had nothing to do with him being ill.”

Bowie kept his illness a secret from almost everyone around him in an effort to protect his family and continue work on his final album. According to the Guardian, the singer was making a sequel to “Lazarus” just weeks before his death. 

“I don’t find it strange he kept his illness so private,” the documentary’s director, Francis Whately, told the Guardian. “He’d had his life picked over for 40 years and he thought he had said everything he wanted to say, there was nothing more.”

Hurwitz David Unlocking the Masters Strauss Richard Owners Manual Bam

Hurwitz David Unlocking the Masters Strauss Richard Owners Manual Bam


(Unlocking the Masters). The life and music of Richard Strauss (1864-1949) span what was arguably the most turbulent period in human history, encompassing the Franco-Prussian War, the unification of Germany, and two world wars. He was one of the very last composers to have started his career in service to the old European aristocracy, but near the end of his life, the continent lay in shambles, and he faced financial ruin even as he remained Germany’s greatest living composer. Virtually from the day they were written, Strauss’s tone poems from the late nineteenth century works such as Don Juan, Till Eulenspiegel, Also Sprach Zarathustra, and Death and Transfiguration have been repertory standards. So have the operas Salome, Elektra, and Der Rosenkavalier. And yet a tremendous quantity of very good music, both early and late, has only recently come to the attention of musicians and music lovers alike. This “owner’s manual,” accompanied by a full-length CD, surveys all the major works with orchestra: symphonies, concertos, tone poems, operas, ballets, suites, and songs. Many of them will be new even to listeners familiar with the popular pieces, part of a vast legacy of immaculately crafted, beautiful music that deserves to be rediscovered and treasured.

Eugene Kim plays ‘David’ on Showtime’s Dice and Talks About His Upcoming Film Car Dogs

2016-04-11-1460353727-5568698-EugeneKim_Headshot_PhotoByTerenOddo.jpg

Coming off of his starring role in the critically acclaimed film Sake Bomb, Eugene joins the elite in comedy on Showtime’s Dice, an ensemble cast in the film Car Dogs and portrays 10 different characters for one job. The young actor seems to do it all… and well.

Eugene Kim’s Twitter and Instagram.

Photo By Teren Oddo.

Talking to actor Eugene Kim makes me hungry. Looking at Eugene’s selfie (see below) makes me NOT hungry. There’s only one thing to do about my predicament – but first, I must look up how to spell the word ‘predicament’.

When I was in college at SUNY Stony Brook around (cough), Andrew Dice Clay did his stand-up show at the student center. It was sold out in minutes. So you can imagine my delight when I found out about Showtime’s Dice!

Let’s see what Eugene Kim has to say for himself!

You play ‘David’ in Showtime’s new series, Dice, which premiered April 10. Tell us about the audition process.

It happened so quickly. I got the call at 10am to go in and audition at 2pm. As an actor, you have a choice to either freak out at the short amount of time you have to study, or you just tackle it. I did a little bit of both.  

The casting director had me do it several times. Got to play with the material, which I love. My character, David, is a passionate gay man who marries into Dice’s family, so I went into the audition dressed well, attire that fit the scenes I read for.

The next day, I got the job. Flew to Las Vegas the following week and started filming.

Were you a fan of Andrew Dice Clay before you got the role? How was working with him? Any insight into ‘David’? Funny stories?

Dice is a Legend! There’s no one like him. While doing standup at the Comedy Store years ago, I got to watch him do his thing. He killed it. The audience loves him. I’m not the most social person when I perform, so I kept to myself.

Working with him on set was amazing. He’s a stellar guy and an extremely talented actor. Every actor wants to feel safe in their environment. I definitely felt that with him.

‘David’ represents all the men and women that judge Andrew based on his act, having only a two-dimensional view of who he is as a comedian, without knowing that behind the scenes, he is a loving father, partner and friend who’s often misunderstood. That’s where the comedy lies in the show. It’s poignant, articulate but hilarious.

After filming a scene, we were all talking. Andrew wanted a picture taken, so I moved out of the way. He called me out, and said he wanted the photo with me. So I stooped over and smiled for the photo. 

He then said, “NO ON MY LAP!” It was hilarious. One of the producers actually made a poster of it with the words,”Hickory Dickory Dock” on it. 

Tell us about your upcoming film Car Dogs with ensemble cast Octavia Spencer, Nia Vardalos, George Lopez and Dash Mihok.

The story unfolds over the course of a day. A car sales manager, (Patrick Adams, Suits) is given an intense deadline by his father (Chris Mulkey,Whiplash) also the owner of a car dealership. He must sell 35 cars by the end of the day. 

We filmed in Arizona for a month. Shooting in Scottsdale, there was a lot to do. It was like we were back at summer camp. It was a blast.

I did go through many bottles of Visine though — it’s so dry out there.

2016-04-11-1460354959-1898540-EugeneKim_Selfie.jpg

Eugene Kim. Seriously, Eugene, what are you eating?

You’ve voiced several video games including World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria, done motion capture on Batman: Arkham Origins. How does working on a video game differ from film/TV?

Voice-over work is a different beast. There’s something liberating in knowing an audience will hear only your voice. It’s like wearing a mask. It gives you the license to be whomever you want.

Doing a video game, you say each line three or four times and then you move on. At the end, you make a bunch of specific attack and wounded sounds. Its such a silly and unnatural thing to do but it’s a vital part. In contrast to film/TV, most of the time you’re not working opposite anyone in voice-over work which can be a little tricky.

I also just did my first Audiobook for the novel “The Walled City” by Ryan Graudin. Beautiful book. I portrayed 10 different characters. Voice-over relies so heavily on the imagination- was a great experience.

Is Eugene Kim your birth name? Are you named after anyone?

It is. My parent’s just liked the name Eugene… randomly.  Conveniently, it translates to Yu-Jin, which is a girl’s name in Korea. 

I just tell people it was very cold in the hospital where I was born. [AUTHOR’S NOTE: Haha! I get it! But not really…]

Your sister is a doctor and you studied child psychology. Why did you choose acting instead of psychology?

My sister is an MD PhD radiation oncologist at Duke. Her focus is on brain cancer. I tell people she got two Doctorates because there were supposed to be two doctors in the family.

Technically, I chose both acting and psychology. You need psychology in acting. You have to analyze your characters without judgment and understand their behavior patterns and defense mechanisms. I am an entertainer, and as trite as it may sound, acting chose me.

I think I can do both. I still want to work with kids and also homeless veterans. I’m just able to do that from a different place now.

What are you addicted to?

Sugarfish sushi. 

Are you a morning or evening person?

Evening.  

Were you really on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood?

No, I have no idea why that is on my IMDb. But hey! I’ll be your neighbor!

What are your thoughts on the Presidential election this year?

I feel like it’s become a big reality show.

If you were asked to break a mirror for a role, would you do it?

Yes. If I needed to break a mirror in a scene, I’m sure there would be a powerful meaning behind it. I’ll do anything to tell the story in the most poignant way… And I try not to give superstitions power.

What’s your favorite meal?

A juicy Bone-in Pork Chop served medium with an Apple Compote, side of Truffle Mac and Sautéed Kale. #gout

David Beckham Has a New Fragrance – and Poses Shirtless to Celebrate

Want your guy to smell like David Beckham for Valentine’s Day? Now that’s a possibility thanks to the brand new cologne the star just added to his fragrance arsenal.

David Beckham BeyondRoger Do Minh / Coty


His latest scent, David Beckham Beyond, embodies his confidence and go-getter attitude with the tag line, “It all starts with a dream.” And with notes of grapefruit, black pepper and leather, it’s just as sexy as you’d imagine his namesake would be.

RELATED PHOTOS: We’re Thankful for These 8 Oh-So-Sexy Shots of David Beckham

Beckham says that while creating fragrances was not originally on his list of goals, he “jumped at the opportunity because I’ve always been interested in them.” He adds that he’s “really proud of the work [Coty and I] have done together over the last 10 years.”

David Beckham BeyondRoger Do Minh / Coty


As for naming his latest scent, the footballer explains dreaming big is part of his mantra.

“Having a dream is something anyone can relate to,” he says. “Whether you’re young or old, we all have dreams. I’m no different and I have always carried a lot of passion into what I do, but that means you have to work hard too. If you love what you do and work hard at it then special things can happen.”

RELATED VIDEO: What Does People’s Sexiest Man Alive David Beckham Wear to Bed?

Beckham adds that he’s proud of what he’s accomplished in his career and in his personal life.

“Captaining my country was probably the greatest achievement in my playing career,” he shares. “But really my family is the biggest accomplishment I have. I’m so proud of Victoria and my children — they’re my greatest achievement.”

David Beckham BeyondRoger Do Minh / Coty


But outside of the soccer world, there’s a lot that PEOPLE’s 2015 Sexiest Man Alive hopes to accomplish — including helping his children reach their goals.

“There’s a lot I want to achieve now from building my business, to my work with UNICEF through my 7 Fund especially,” he shares. “And of course as a father I now want to help make my children’s dreams come true.”

His best advice for fans? Working as hard as you can can to get where you want to be.

“It’s all about loving what you do and working really hard at it,” he shares. “There will be tough times but if you have the right attitude and keep working hard amazing things can happen.”

Victoria and David Beckham Wore Matching Black Tuxedos at British Fashion Awards 2015

While Victoria and David Beckham haven’t always had success with matching outfits (the matching leather duds the duo wore at the 1999 Gucci show aren’t remembered fondly), the couple gave it another go at last night’s British Fashion Awards. Victoria, nominated for the womenswear designer award, wore a tux jacket from her own label. While we would have loved to see that sharp look strut across the stage, sadly she didn’t get to take home a statuette; the honor went to J.W. Anderson.

Even if we expect to see Victoria looking posh and pretty perfect all the time, it’s a different story in her home life. We melted over the fact that she greeted a recent interviewer in sweatpants, and David’s copped to preferring his wife casual (ideally in jeans and Adidas sneakers).

Beyond the whole looks-good-in-a-tux thing, come see why David Beckham so rightly deserved People‘s sexiest man label this year.

David Collins Studio Looks Back, and Ahead With Exhibition

PART OF THE FURNITURE: David Collins Studio marked 30 years in the interiors business with a flash exhibition at Phillips in London that looked backward — and forward in time. The 24-hour show, “Past Present Future,” addressed those themes, with highlights including a martini cart swiped from The Connaught Hotel’s bar — whose decor is a contemporary riff on Edwardian splendor — and endless images of the restaurants, hotels and private homes that glow with that distinctive Collins halo.
Interiors are filled with rich color palettes, textured surfaces, offbeat details — such as the little gold Champagne buzzers at Bob Bob Ricard in Soho — and, most importantly, flattering lighting able to make even sleep-deprived individuals glow.
The exhibition featured images, sketches, Post-it notes from Collins, swatches and even an example of the delicate molding — with a feathery wing pattern — that Sarah Burton, Alexander McQueen’s creative director, created with the studio for the store interiors. There were images of the Graff estate in South Africa — where the terrace follows the curve of the mountainside — and examples of the painted silk and hand-stitched panels of Hyde Park at The London hotel in Manhattan. The interiors of Collins own apartment

Larry David Was Pretty, Pretty Good As Bernie Sanders, But This Comedian Is Even Better

The Internet agreed that “Seinfeld” co-creator and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” star Larry David did a pretty, pretty good impression of Democratic presidential candidate (and fellow Brooklyn native) Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on “Saturday Night Live.” Even Sanders himself loved it, joking that he’ll invite David to his campaign rallies because “he does better than I do.”

But here’s one that rivals David’s portrayal, from comedian James Adomian, who performed his own Sanders impression last week at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York.

Watch Adomian as Sanders in the clip above, participating in a “debate” with Donald Trump, played by comedian Anthony Atamanuik.

And here’s David again, in case you missed it.

Donald Trump Discusses Ties With David Herzka at Campaign Event

ONLY IN AMERICA: Opportunistic designer David Herzka really tied one on with Donald Trump Sunday morning, but not in the colloquial sense. During a rise-and-shine breakfast at the Long Branch, N.J., home of his daughter Ivanka’s in-laws Seryl and Charles Kushner, Trump mingled with 100 or so of their inner circle. “It was pretty low-key. But he’s very serious and believes in what he’s doing,” Herzka said. “Everyone felt he’s really a potential contender.”
The Kushners’ enterprising son, Jared, made the rounds with Ivanka, but another power couple — his venture capitalist-skilled brother Joshua and Karlie Kloss — were not on the scene. Trump’s son-in-law no doubt has his reserve of potential campaign supporters as owner of Kushner Properties and the New York Observer.
Herzka, who started his direct-to-consumer online neckwear line David Fin earlier this year, showed his own moxie by having a word with The Donald and giving him a tie in what he thought would be the candidate’s favorite colors — red, white and blue. Herzka told Trump about the Battery Park-based start-up that makes all of its ties in the U.S. and donates $ 5 of each $ 85 sale to Hiring Our Heroes, a nonprofit that helps veterans find

David Beckham, Harvey Keitel Featured in Belstaff Short Film

OH, DOWN IN MEXICO: David Beckham is teaming with Belstaff once again on a short film set to be released on Sept. 22, following the brand’s show at London Fashion Week.
Beckham appears with Harvey Keitel, Katherine Waterston, Cathy Moriarty in “Outlaws,” which was filmed on location in Mexico, with Liv Tyler as the executive producer.
“I always love to challenge myself,” said Beckham. “Filming ‘Outlaws’ in the Mexican desert with Belstaff and the Legs team — not to mention working alongside Harvey, Cathy, and Katherine — was an adventure I will never forget.”
Written and directed by Geremy Jasper, the film has a surreal atmosphere and was produced by Belstaff Films and Legs, a division of Milk Media.
The film follows a mysterious drifter and motorcycle stuntman who is haunted by memories of a beautiful trapeze artist — and hunted by a maniacal director seeking revenge.
The trailer will be released on Monday on the Belstaff brand site, while a wrap party will take place during New York Fashion Week on September 17. The global premiere and party will take place following Belstaff’s show on Monday, Sept. 21.

David joined Obama along with former UBS chairman of the Americas Robert Wolf and Cyrus Walker, a cousin of White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett.

David, who has golfed with Obama before, was spotted crying out in a sand trap, possibly because of a poor shot.

David Duchovny Discusses The Difficulty Of Playing A Violent Cop On ‘Aquarius’

In “Aquarius,” David Duchovny plays a cop who isn’t afraid to use violence to get the job done — a tricky line to walk in a time when police brutality has become such a controversial topic. In the video above, Duchovny chats with “The HuffPost Show” host Roy Sekoff about playing a character with a moral code that is “personalized” rather than “dogmatized.”

David Copperfield, Volume 1

David Copperfield, Volume 1


The story traces the life of David Copperfield from childhood to maturity. David was born in Blunderstone, Suffolk, near Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England, in 1820, six months after the death of his father. David spends his early years with his mother and their housekeeper, Peggotty. When he is seven years old his mother marries Edward Murdstone. David is given good reason to dislike his stepfather and has similar feelings for Murdstone’s sister Jane, who moves into the house soon afterwards. Murdstone attempts to thrash David for falling behind in his studies. David bites him and soon afterwards is sent away to a boarding school, Salem House, with a ruthless headmaster, Mr. Creakle. There he befriends James Steerforth and Tommy Traddles. David returns home for the holidays to learn that his mother has given birth to a baby boy. Shortly after David returns to Salem House, his mother and her baby die, and David returns home immediately. Peggotty marries a man named Mr Barkis. Murdstone sends David to work for a wine merchant in London – a business of which Murdstone is a joint owner. Copperfield’s landlord, Wilkins Micawber, is sent to debtors’ prison (the King’s Bench Prison) and remains there for several months before being released and moving to Plymouth. No one remains to care for David in London, so he decides to run away. He walks from London to Dover, where he finds his only relative, his unmarried, eccentric aunt Betsey Trotwood. She agrees to raise him, despite Murdstone’s attempt to regain custody of David. David’s aunt renames him “Trotwood Copperfield” and addresses him as “Trot”, and it becomes one of several names to which David answers in the course of the novel. As David grows to adulthood, a variety of characters enter, leave, and re-enter his life. These include Peggotty and her family, including her orphaned niece “Little Em’ly”, who moves in with them and charms the young David. David’s romantic but self-serving school friend, Steerforth, seduces a

David Koechner’s Hilarious Pitch For The Next Viagra Commercial

An Open Letter to David Chipperfield

2015-06-03-1433349910-548673-chipperfieldsecondgalleriesbest.jpg

The Museo delle Culture by David Chipperfield

Dear David:

I know you really care about floors. I know because I’ve been to your Neues Museum in Berlin and your Saint Louis Art Museum extension, and both have exceptional floors.

And I know you were unhappy with the floors at your new Museum in Milan, the Museo delle Culture (Mudec). So unhappy that, after working behind the scenes to get the floors fixed, unsuccessfully, you chose to go public: first disowning the building, then releasing a letter in which you complained about some 60,000 square feet of sub-standard lavastone. In the letter, you said that the hundreds of slabs of volcanic rock displayed “a substantial lack of homogeneity”; that individual pieces had gaps, chips and cracks; and that the installation introduced bad joints and other defects.

But could the floors really be that bad? I was curious, so I made my way to the museum. And here’s what I think:

The floors are horrible, They are streaky and uneven and unworthy of a David Chipperfield building.

2015-06-03-1433346142-3675525-chipperfieldbadfloorbest.jpg
The Floors

But you should embrace the building anyway. Because it’s wonderful. So wonderful that no one will be looking down.

You were given a courtyard to work with — a courtyard in the formerly industrial Zona Tortona. A quadrangle of four-story buildings wraps around your site, hiding your building from the street.

What you created in that courtyard looks entirely utilitarian. Walking the perimeter of your museum, I saw nothing but galvanized metal and glass. The only “decoration” is the museum’s logo, made of thin, white neon tubes that are practically invisible unless you’re looking for them. Your restraint is impressive.

2015-06-03-1433346229-8737780-chipperfieldbestexterior.jpg
The Exterior

The most amazing thing you did was make the roof appear to meet the walls without any kind or overhang or parapet. It’s an entirely flat, entirely uniform surface — a gift to the people who live or work in the surrounding buildings. Your strategy was to cover what’s on the actual roof with metal grates. The grates have enough depth that, unless you’re looking straight down from a helicopter, all you see if a continuous gray surface. A spectacular detail.

In fact, it must be infuriating that the roof, which few people will see, is more perfect than the floor, which lots of people will be walking on.

2015-06-03-1433346305-7325797-chipperfieldroofbest.jpg
The Roof

But don’t worry, because you’ve created an interior that draws eyes upward. At street level, the museum is strictly functional –a large lobby opens onto a bookstore, a cafe, a children’s learning area, coat room and rest rooms. Everything is super-spare — except for the coffered concrete ceiling, which is beautiful and had me looking up.

2015-06-03-1433346538-5893083-chipperfieldbestlobby.jpg
The Lobby

But the piece de resistance is the stairway. It’s an elegant single flight that leads straight up to an amoeba-shaped lightwell.

2015-06-03-1433346366-3062378-chipperfieldupstairwaybest.jpg
The stairway

The lightwell, or the agora, as you call it, recalls other googly rooms, like the Hall of Science, by Wallace K Harrison, in Flushing Meadows Park. Harrison used concrete studded with dark blue glass. You’ve used light green glass set into aluminum mullions, creating a form that’s a perfect balance of a doodle and a grid.

Pinwheeling around the atrium are windowless galleries. The two current shows are beautifully installed. The curators know what they’re doing, and that’s to draw visitors’ attention to the objects on display.

2015-06-03-1433346429-5714856-chipperfieldgalleriesbest.jpg
Entrance to galleries

I’m not saying floors aren’t important. I once had a contractor rip up a just-installed kitchen floor and start over because the tiles weren’t lined up properly. So I feel your pain.

And that was just my kitchen. Yours is a very public, $ 70 million, 180,000-square-foot building. But Zona Tortona is all about imperfection — the buildings surrounding your museum are covered in graffiti. This is a gritty urban neighborhood, not the Acropolis.

And you’ve succeeded in creating a fabulous museum in this tricky location. Your building has so much going for it that even bad floors can’t spoil it. You should put your name back on it.

Sincerely,

Fred Bernstein

The Best Moments From The Late Show With David Letterman’s Finale

See Your Favorite Supermodels in Their First Late Show With David Letterman Appearances

Entertainment stars bid farewell to David Letterman on his final show last night—and so did fashion stars, like Christy Turlington Burns, who posted this gem on Instagram:


My 2nd appearance on The Late Show at age 24 talking about @calvinklein #ThanksDave

A photo posted by Christy Turlington Burns (@cturlington) on

The legendary funnyman was known for interviewing many models early on in their careers. Among those who have passed through the hallowed halls of the Ed Sullivan Theatre: Naomi Campbell, Gisele Bundchen, Cindy Crawford, and Claudia Schiffer. These clips from the early ’80s and ’90s prove that in addition to being drop dead gorgeous, these supermodels are whip-smart, offering tart retorts to Letterman’s friendly jabs.

Turlington hit the show right after shooting an underwear commercial for Calvin Klein. The then-24-year-old told Letterman that she’d like to go back to school and become a writer someday when she retires from modeling. She went back to school indeed, but Turlington is still in hot demand today in fashion.
Naomi Campbell had a laugh with Letterman in 1995 when he noted that no one helped the supermodel up after a royal tumble on the runway in mile-high platform shoes.
A shy Cindy Crawford hit Letterman right after she famously signed on with Revlon. She told the host she went to college to become a chemical engineer, to which he responded, “Chemical engineers tend to be good looking?”
A 22-year-old Claudia Schiffer was full of zingers. When Letterman asked if Prince Albert of Monaco had proposed marriage, she played coy and teased that she had heard gossip that Letterman had an affair with Princess Diana.

Dick Cavett Explains How David Letterman’s ‘Mask Of Innocence’ Helped Him Get Away With Anything

Late-night TV legend Dick Cavett joined HuffPost Live on Wednesday to look back on the legacy of David Letterman and say goodbye to the subversive comedy icon, who officially begins his retirement after his final “Late Show” episode airs tonight.

Cavett, a longtime fan of and former guest on Letterman’s show, told host Josh Zepps that the key to Letterman’s incredible interview style was his ability to hilariously insult his guests even as they sat right next to him, creating a unique “sense of danger” on his show. Cavett said Letterman was able to sneak by his biting barbs thanks to “that hayseed, rustic, Midwestern, innocent, clownish face.”

In order to do “those things that he was criticized for and the dummies didn’t get,” Cavett explained Letterman often hid his cutting wit “behind a wonderful mask of innocence, and I think that’s what made it effective for those who dug it, among whom I was one.”

Cavett added that often guests had no idea they’d been hilariously ripped apart by Letterman until after the interview was over.

“David’s attitude — it wasn’t so much ever what he said — but his attitude and his looks were priceless, and I’m sure some of [the guests] were stunned when they got home, saw themselves with David and saw what he had done to them,” Cavett said.

7 David Letterman Quotes That Prove He’s Even MORE Awesome Than You Thought

Wit and witticisms from the man himself.

On Wednesday, David Letterman will step down as host of “The Late Show” after 22 years, on top of the 11 seasons he spent at NBC on “Late Night With David Letterman.” He’s a one-of-a-kind talent whose void in the late-night landscape will undoubtedly be felt.

But let’s not get all weepy and teary-eyed just yet. Instead, here are a few of Dave’s best quotes. Some are funny. Some are poignant. And the rest fall somewhere in between, where David Letterman was truly a master.

A Goodbye After 20 Years of Directing Late Show With David Letterman

In the early evening of May 20 the words “used to be” will be grafted to the end of my name. Around 5:30, I will ask CBS Technical Director Tim Kennedy to “please fade to black.” Later I will remove the few remaining personal items from my sunny office with the four windows and set out to civilian life. When my feet touch 53rd street I will take my place among “ex” ball players, “former” Congressmen and “used to be” ship captains. I will be referred to as “the former director” of Late Show with David Letterman. Along with the name change, comes the surrender of an all-access pass to New York City.

Consider the sound of six hands clapping. In March of 2012, the cast of the Broadway show Once was booked on Late Show. On the Friday before the appearance, I walked eight blocks south to the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater with a Late Show producer and my assistant. We sat in the darkened house as Cristin Milioti, Steve Kazee and the entire cast treated us to a very private performance of “Falling Slowly.” We were invited onstage where these big-time performers warmly introduced themselves and asked if “we would like to see it again?” “Ah, thank you. We’d love to see it again.”

Show business is filled with effusive strivers who realize their dream and can’t stop telling you about it. Sorry, but yes, there was a younger version of me from the north shore of Staten Island desperate for a one-way ferry ride. Manhattan scared me — it was loud, uncomfortable and uncaring, and, for reasons thousands of smarter people have tried to explain, absolutely magnetic. I had no choice. I needed to step off on the New York side and stay there.

One arctic January night, I rode the ferry again but this time I “owned” it. Late Show needed a new opening montage and I was given the resources and creative freedom to light up a boat named “The American Legion”. After crossing the harbor with the ferry’s captain, I grabbed a taxi to the West 30th street heliport where a pilot and camera crew harnessed me to the floor of a helicopter that was missing its doors. We did multiple passes across the bow of the ferry that was following a route and speed I requested. Later we buzzed the icons. I got a close look at the rivets dotting the roof of the Chrysler building and dangled my feet over the spiky crown of the Statue of Liberty. “Big deal” you say, “directors get to do that stuff all the time.” True, but on what scale and how often? I was in show business every day for 20 years or 1040 Sundays if Billy Crystal is counting. I had a blast. If things didn’t go well on Tuesday (they often didn’t), I had the rest of the week to get it right (I often didn’t.)

When my time at Late Show ends I will have directed over 3700 broadcasts, three openings and dozens of single camera shorts. I was treated to a private tour of the Empire State Building. I rode in blimps, police cars and the back seat of a taxi with Buzz Aldrin, who listened politely as I explained how to hold a pen in zero G. I had free run of Yankee Stadium and was part of a group that convinced George Steinbrenner to berate our Stage Manager, Biff Henderson. Mr. Steinbrenner turned out to be a great guy but the people around him seemed very nervous.

I put in hundreds of miles wandering the city streets with writers and camera crews in search of “found comedy”. On one of the many days when the funny refused to reveal itself, a call was put in to City Hall. Forty five minutes later, we were standing on the porch of Gracie Mansion as Rudy Giuliani lectured us about the waters of the Long Island Sound, the Harlem River and Upper New York Bay converging off his front yard to form the currents of Hell Gate. He reminded me of a know-it-all uncle.

If Joaquin Phoenix can romance an operating system, can I love a building? In 1992 I was invited to abandon my comfortable union gig in the art deco halls of NBC and travel a few blocks west to a smelly, broken down theater that saw its glory days in the 1960s. There was no guarantee of long-term employment, but there was the opportunity to help refurbish of one of the world’s most famous stages. Money blew down Broadway as the corporate might of CBS dragged a neglected ocean liner out of mothballs and made it seaworthy again. It was intoxicating. A dazzling broadcast facility was dropped into a swirl of fresh plaster, deep pile carpeting and velour seats. Everything was new; everything was possible.

I roamed the grand old building unchallenged, no one told me to leave (actually there was one time in 2003, long story). Instead stagehands and security people acknowledged me with snarky, absurd salutations that can only be traded among people who’ve shared changes of seasons and cycles of life. I’ve crawled through every accessible inch of The Ed Sullivan Theater. I’ve examined the pumping system that tames the stream running beneath the building and I’ve spied the plump rats who shared the stage with Letterman. I’ve climbed the sketchy iron ladder to the roof and stepped out a restaurant window onto the iconic marquee where Paul McCartney marked his return with a summertime street concert. I’ve pondered my good fortune in front of the René Bouché pencil drawing of Ed that hangs in the inner lobby and I’ve seen the looks of reverence from the many people I’ve taken through the place.

In October of 2002 Warren Zevon showed up for rehearsal; he was dying from mesothelioma. This was his last Late Show appearance and final public performance. He would be dead in less than a year.

Warren was a Late Show regular and covered for Paul Shaffer during the rare times Paul was unavailable. He was one of those guys you never saw coming. He didn’t enter a room — he appeared. On this day a rolling silence announced Warren’s arrival. He took in our frightened, sad faces for a few perfectly timed beats and said, “I think it’s the flu.” Later, Warren and Letterman had a compelling and surprisingly amusing conversation during which Warren shared that he may have “made a tactical error in not going to a physician for 20 years.” With the time he had left, Warren told us he intended to “enjoy every sandwich.” He performed three songs, focusing every witness to a deep look at the abyss.

Each day, Late Show started with a blank page that demanded to be filled. There were plenty of smart ideas, but we often resorted to spectacle. We broke windows, blew up pumpkins and spilled thousands of marbles from seven floors up. We hosted presidential candidates, presidents and former presidents. (There’s that “former” word again.) We re-enacted the Civil War and marched Marines under our marquee and through the aisles of the theater. We watched Philippe Petit take a wire walk 14 stories above an airbag that the city demanded, but he assured me would do nothing to save his life.

And then there are the folks, the humans who kept the assembly line moving. Late Show is populated by smart, stylish people with wicked senses of humor and impossibly fast minds. They gorge on popular culture and carry generous supplies of intuition and insight. Somehow they soldier on through jealousy, rage, dysfunction, cancelled guests, evolving technology, relentless scrutiny, tardy rock stars, fierce competition, 4 am calls, failed comedy ideas and a very demanding boss. They are clever, resilient and, at their core, among the most decent people you could ever hope to meet.

And then there’s Letterman — someone who relentlessly drove himself and the rest of us to the outer envelope of effort and clear thinking. In a random close encounter you’re likely to be charmed — what a great guy, so well-informed and so interested in what I have to say.

I grew up around funny people. Sarcasm and irony was my native language, finesse was an alien concept. Humming just beneath the surface of banter and insults was a bond allowing us to endure life’s cruelties with silliness. Funny people are strong. They counter fear and the indignities of living by surfacing the ironic, the ridiculous and the unexplainable. If tragedy is never taken seriously, then nothing can be tragic, fear is eliminated. To be in the presence of funny people is effortless and exhilarating, to be around people trying to be funny requires you to pay attention — it’s work.

.

When Dave was still at NBC hosting his 12:30 show, there were lavish Christmas parties. He’d buy out the Rockefeller Center Skating Rink and staff and crew would eat, drink and skate together. It was magical. Imagine sliding around on that famous ice minus the crowds, while envious tourists studied us from the plaza above.

As the evening wore on, small support clusters gathered to strategize about the best moment to approach Dave. We all wanted a little face time to register gratitude and maybe say something clever. People agonized over when to make the move and what to say. It was like lining up to visit Santa Claus, except Santa was a moving target, easily irritated and there would be no sitting on his lap.

It didn’t feel right to bother him while he was skating; you weren’t going to interrupt him while he was eating and there was never an easy way to join a conversation he was having with someone else. I was new to this world and couldn’t reconcile the degree of angst hovering over the room. Smart people were struggling to measure the conditions of saying “thank you” to their boss at the company Christmas party. It seemed way too difficult but, like everyone else, I was thrilled to be included and desperately wanted to be invited to the next party and beyond.

As I silently raged against my diffidence and fear of celebrities, I was steadily reminded by more experienced partygoers that “you have to go up there.” Time was running short. When I spied a gap around his table, I jumped. It was like stepping off the wing of a shrieking airplane. Beyond the pressure of coming up with something smart to say was the added burden of being evaluated by a gaggle of eavesdroppers who would overhear my remarks and report to the rest of the party. There would be judgment.

Before I was frightened off by the intense, narrow eyes that screamed “Oh God, here’s another one,” I stuck out my arm and said “Well Dave, it’s time for the annual hand shake.” I was sure that lampooning the absurdity of it all was something he’d appreciate. Turns out I was very wrong. Professional funny people don’t like wise guys. My stab at neighborhood humor was met with soul-searing silence. “Thanks for everything,” I stammered as he reflexively gripped my hand. “No Jerry, thank you,” came the kind-of-loud reply. I slithered away reduced. I spent two agonizing hours trying to get it right and he dropped me with four words and a scowl. I wanted to stick my head in a bucket.

Spread over 25 years my Letterman encounters, occasionally direct sometimes by proxy, were dominated by similar miscues, garbled intentions and remorse. I never seemed to say the right thing, but the stakes got higher — I was the director, perfectly positioned to screw things up and I often did. Despite an earnest desire to please, I never left work thinking I got it right.

Among Dave’s many gifts is the uncanny ability to turn the simplest task into something unwieldy. Watch him dial a phone or attempt a tweet. He’s also someone who can stare down the barrel of a single camera and distill the most complex human frailties with sideways insights that are hysterical and ultimately reassuring. The maddening part is the impossibility of predicting which version you’re going to get.

Long before Paris Hilton, the obnoxious Housewives or the family Kardashian was Dave, antagonizing Bryant Gumbel with a bull horn or taunting General Electric’s upper management with a gift basket. Dave pioneered reality television. If he was happy, you knew it and there was no escaping the times he was pissed. Search the night he announced the birth of his son or the time someone accused him of being a “non-voting Republican.”

Brilliant writers showered him with scripts, concepts and set ups. Most pitches were rejected and the rare ones to make it through were drastically altered. Even the best ideas were a threat to his effort to spill his thoughts out in real time. The memorable nights were when he was on a rant or a roll and the vitriol or joy flowed fresh from his uniquely wired brain. While he filleted himself in pursuit of perfection, David Letterman harbored a deep disdain for anything suggesting rehearsal. The observations, the comedy, the biting conclusions had to be conjured in the moment. This was not a teleprompter guy, if it was being read, it wasn’t a conversation, and if it wasn’t a conversation you’re not a broadcaster.

Dave is painfully self-aware. He lives in a state of perpetual examination and is incredulous that others don’t make the same effort. If they did, the world wouldn’t be populated by so many fools. He is easily the fastest knife in any fight and lights, microphones, cameras and direction only interfered. He was impossible to please, and if you stumbled into doing something right, he was convinced it would lessen your next effort. Was it simply some noble, Midwestern work ethic? I may never know.

Dave possessed a fierce drive to honor his opportunity. He threw everything he had at the show and left nothing on the table. Defying an earlier generation of generic NBC executives, David Letterman did become the uncontested heir to Johnny Carson. He walks off with his dream fully realized. He also gave me and many others a shot at their own professional dreams. The entertainment business is deep with people who passed through Dave’s world and have gone on to considerable success.

Now it’s time to hand the keys to a new owner. One day you’re a big shot with fat budgets and vast resources and the next day you’re not. Like the high school we leave behind or the vacated summer rental, someone kind of like you will occupy the space that was once yours and create memories of their own.

When Warren Zevon was leaving the theater that early autumn evening the impossible silence returned. The stage was dim and the theater’s ghost light was in place. As Warren gingerly lowered himself into the backseat of a town car, Stagehand Kenny Sheehan attempted a goodbye — “We’ll see you around, Warren.” A weary grin came to Warren’s face as he reached for the door. “Yea, I’ll see you somewhere.”

Thanks to David Letterman, I Have a Wife, Job and Best Friend

2015-05-09-1431194449-242350-Dave1.png

Five words. Just five words: Revolutionary. Hilarious. Mischievous. Subversive. Anarchical.

At age 14, I would have had no idea what four of those words meant, but looking back, that is surely why David Letterman’s short lived 1980 morning show enthralled me. It’s why I have been watching Late Night and Late Show for what? More than 30 years.

Also, at age 14, there’s no way I could have known that the guy giving a canned ham to a monkey washing a cat would be 51 percent responsible for my happy marriage, my career in TV comedy and my cherished friends. Yes. 51 percent. Trust me. I did the math.

I became a Page (think Kenneth from “30 Rock”) at NBC in Rockefeller Center in 1989 for one reason: to get as close as I could to the epicenter of revolutionary mischievous hilarity.

  • I was mesmerized by the absurdity: tossing things off a tall building, just to see them explode.
  • I was mesmerized by the insanity: putting a camera on a monkey’s back just to see the world from a different perspective.
  • I was mesmerized by the anarchy: the total disregard for his employer, GE’s authority. The “GE Handshake” makes me laugh still today.
  • I was mesmerized by the absurd indulgence: Getting Henry Mancini to write the musical introduction to “Viewer Mail.”

As part of my Page duties, during the day, I’d give tours of empty Studio 6A where Late Night was taped. I also sat in Dave’s chair, despite being admonished by my page bosses not to. I threw pencils through the “glass” behind the desk. I sat on the desk, too. In the afternoon, I wandered the halls outside Studio 6A just to get a glimpse of Dave as he headed to and from rehearsal. At the time, he carried a football and obsessively tossed it to himself and others. On a few occasions, I even manned the Studio 6A desk — situated in the hall outside the 6A studio — and handed Dave his dressing room key. On many evenings during my 18 months as a Page at NBC, I also sat the audiences for Late Night.

Just before the show started, Dave would appear to say hello to the audience. He’d crack a few jokes and answer a question or two. Dave had one joke in particular that got a laugh every time he told it. Before someone asked a question, he’d ask “Where are you from?” And regardless of their answer, he’d say: “Oh! By the laundromat.”

Just being around was pretty damn great. But for me, the best part was watching the show. There were a few chairs and some standing room behind the last row of audience chairs. That’s where the Pages sat during the show’s taping. It’s where, by osmosis, I learned the business of revolutionary, hilarious, mischievous, subversive, anarchical comedy.

And, there were a few days when watching the show got trumped by actually being on the show. Now and again, the show would feature one of the NBC Pages in some in-studio comedy segment. And for reasons I don’t know, I got asked a few times. One time, Dave came back from commercial break and on the TV monitors in the studio, instead of Dave sitting at the desk, the channel changed to various celebrities sitting in Dave’s chair — as if someone was changing the channel. Bruce Willis, then Connie Chung, then Fred Savage, among others. Dave shouted that he knew what was wrong and asked the Page to take care of it. The camera turned to the audience and revealed a guy pointing an oversized remote control. My job was to grab the guy and roughly escort him from the studio.

In the blurry screen grab, I was “guarding” one water fountain marked “Dave.” Beside it, another fountain marked “Staff.” While Dave was sitting at the desk, Chris Elliot suddenly appeared and announced his plan to do something no one has ever done… and that it was about time someone did. Chris pushed me out of the way, and drank from the fountain marked “Dave.” When Chris’ applause died down, Dave dismissed him and demanded he take the fake fountains with him.

OK, so it seems clear how Dave influenced my career. Although I was unsuccessful getting hired on Late Night, thankfully Bill Maher was starting up Politically Incorrect, where I spent five years. Now, what about my wife and friend? Well, a few days after I started my job as a Page, another guy started, too. He and I have been fighting about the best way to lose weight three times a week for 25 years. And, about a year after I started as a Page, a pretty girl showed up to start her first day as a Page. The first time I saw her, I knew I would marry her. And I did.

So, thanks Dave for 30 years of revolutionary, hilarious, mischievous, subversive, anarchical comedy. Oh, yeah. And that other junk, too.

How David Oyelowo Sold His Father on the Idea of Becoming an Actor | Oprah Prime | OWN

David Oyelowo, 38, stars as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in the film Selma. Born in England and raised in his parents’ native Nigeria, David earned a scholarship to the distinguished London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts and went on to become the first black actor to play an English king at the Royal Shakespeare Company. Still, David says his father wasn’t totally supportive when he first told him he wanted to be an actor after “sneakily applying for drama school.”

“Being an artist, being an actor for a Nigerian family, is bizarre,” he says. “This is not a proper job.” In the video above, David shares the key argument that changed his father’s mind.

God Told David Oyelowo He Would Play Martin Luther King, But He Didn’t Stop There

David Oyelowo hasn’t been shy about discussing how God spoke to him in 2007 and said the actor would eventually play Martin Luther King Jr. in what would become “Selma.”

“The reason I’m talking about that is because I’m as shocked as anyone else may be that this British guy is playing Martin Luther King,” Oyelowo, who was born in England, said during a recent interview. “Certainly back then, in 2007, I had done none of the movies people have now seen me do now.”

At the time, Oyelowo — who has since starred in “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” “Jack Reacher,” “The Help” and “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” — was a relative unknown. But it was another obstacle separating him from King that proved more difficult to overcome: Stephen Frears. Back then, the director was attached to “Selma” and didn’t think Oyelowo was right for the part. In the ensuing seven years, however, Frears left and multiple directors nearly stepped into his place (including Spike Lee and Paul Haggis). In 2010, Lee Daniels came onboard and, after working with Oyelowo on”Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” cast the actor as King. The tumultuous development process didn’t end there: Daniels dropped out because of scheduling conflicts. That’s when Oyelowo suggested another former collaborator: Ava DuVernay, with whom Oyelowo had made the 2012 indie film “Middle of Nowhere.”

“There was so much faith that had to be employed that this thing was going to happen,” Oyelowo said. “Virtually every day between that moment [when God spoke] to me and now, I did everything I could to make this thing happen.”

Now that it has, Oyelowo has received the best reviews of his career for playing King. The performance earned him a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama, and it has Oyelowo in the middle of a crowded group of contenders vying for an Oscar nomination. “Selma,” meanwhile, stands as one of the year’s best films, a timely and insightful drama that says as much about Martin Luther King’s struggle to get equal voting rights in 1965 as it does about the Millions March in 2014.

Oyelowo spoke to HuffPost Entertainment about “Selma,” working with DuVernay and what it was like to meet King’s children.

You’ve talked about hearing a higher calling to play this role all the way back in 2007. Does that kind of connection with God extend through the production as well?
What I couldn’t have anticipated is how much I needed, to be perfectly frank, God’s help in the playing of it. Not least because this was a man of God. This was someone, if you’ve seen him giving those speeches, there is something flowing through him other than himself. He is flowing in his anointing. I needed that. I like to think of myself as a good actor, but Martin Luther King, I ain’t! If you’re going to go and shoot in Atlanta, in a historical church, with 500 people who are from Atlanta, you need a little help from above. So I definitely felt I had that.

Watch Oyelowo in an exclusive clip from “Selma”



During that seven year period from when you first read the script and now, was playing Dr. King something you thought about every day, or is that impossible?
The first thing I can say to you is that it’s very possible to think about playing Martin Luther King every single day for seven years. I’m living evidence of that. There is never going to be a time in your life as an actor where you’re going to go, “Oh yeah, I’m ready to play Dr. King now.” But between doing the work in quiet and then, the films that presented themselves to me, I prepared. Playing a Union solider in “Lincoln,” playing a preacher in “The Help,” playing a black fighter pilot in “Red Tails,” playing the son of a butler in “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” who is in the Freedom Riders and becomes a Black Panther: these were all films in which I had to go study the history. Inevitably they were part of what informed playing Dr. King. Now, were they opportunities that were divinely presented to me or was I just continually drawn to that material because of what was going on in my head? That I can’t really say. But I do know that so many different aspects of my life went into what you see in the film. Plus, I was now the age Dr. King was when these things happened in his life. When I first read the script, I had two kids; when we shot it, I had four kids, like he did. There were so many things I matured into by the time I played the role.

Dr. King is, relatively speaking, a young man during the events of “Selma,” but he looks 10-15 years older than his actual age. How did you manage the physical transformation this role required?
Again, we’re back to the spiritual side of things. People like to talk about the weight gain and the voice, but that’s what we do as actors; that’s the first rung of what you need to do if you’re going to play someone like this. But it was the emotional and spiritual weight of what this man did and had to go through that was tough. At that stage in his life, to have spent 10 years under threat — and not only his life, but his kids’ lives, his wife’s life. Having all these people depend on him. Being a voice for the voiceless. Being someone who has seen people die because of this cause. And not just because racist people have killed them, but because he went to places where he tried to have racists act out in front of the cameras, and then people get hurt. In Selma, people died. That weighs on you. If you’re mentally placing yourself in that space, it does something to you physically. When I watch him, you can see there is a burden. You can see that he looks and feels older than he was. He was 36 at this stage. That is crazy. That had to be one of the things I tried to bring to it.

You recommended Ava to direct this film. Having worked with her on “Middle of Nowhere,” what surprised you about her transition to this kind of bigger material?
When we worked together on “Middle Of Nowhere” I saw her talent is undeniable. One of the privileges I’ve had in doing some of those films I mentioned is working with Steven Spielberg and other incredible directors. I was on the set with Ava, and she is just as good. I think the unique thing about her — and what she brought to “Selma” that was so incredible — was the ease with which she went into a film that was 100 times the budget of the last thing she had done. There were so many more people, so many more elements, it was much bigger in size, but she never panicked. She never shouted. She never threw a chair. She never compromised her vision. That went through the post-production side of things as well. To be a visionary, you have to be single minded. She has that without being, to be perfectly honest, an unpleasant person. That’s very rare! Often being single-minded is combined with being a bit of a nightmare to be around. She’s just not that.

It’s impossible to discuss “Selma” without mentioning how timely it is in its scenes of protest and police brutality. How do you think “Selma” fits in with the events that have occurred over the last month?
Well, we’re back to the divide, aren’t we? If you were ever going to have a moment in time when this film should come out in the 50 years since these events happened, it would be now. Not only would it be now, it would be now now. It would be this month. We would be having this conversation today. You can’t tell me between everything we’ve discussed already to when the film is being released to the fact that it’s a black woman who has made this — just in terms of where we are in history and how beautiful a thing that is — that it’s not divine timing. Whether you believe in that stuff or not, I truly believe the reason why this film is so pertinent for right now is that it shows this isn’t the first time. It shows that we are not a new generation for this and also how it was successfully dealt with. Peaceful protest. Strategy. Using the power of the image to bring the world together. That’s what happened in a sense.

Ferguson, I feel, was deemed a “black problem.” Eric Garner became an American problem. That’s the power of the image. Seeing him murdered onscreen has been the thing that has brought America and the world together to protest. Seeing Bloody Sunday on the Edmund Pettus Bridge is what brought the nation together, black and white, in 1965. The difference is that was about voting rights, and this is about police reform. There had to be federal intervention with voting rights; the federal government is stalling on intervening on this, to bring in independent bodies to police the police. It’s just clear that’s what is needed. No matter what they say about how difficult that is because it’s states’ rights. It was states’ rights with voting. It’s crazy how similar it is.

Did you get to meet anyone close to Dr. King in preparation for the role?
I met every one of his children and spoke with them. I actually became quite friendly with Dexter Scott King, his second son. I met Martin Luther King III. I actually didn’t meet Bernice King until the Friday before we were going to start shooting. I bumped into her at the King Center, if you would believe it — again, the divine! I was with a group of the actors who were going to be in the film, and she went up to everyone, deliberately leaving me to last. “So, who you playing?” she said. I was like, “Oh. My. Lord.” Dr. King’s voice is pretty deep, but I was like, in a high-pitched voice, “I’m going to be playing your daddy.” It was as bad as it could be. But by the time we finished our conversation, she ended up praying with me and giving me her blessing to play her dad. She and her elder brother saw the film recently and were very complimentary about it. She said mine is the best interpretation of her dad she’s seen. I will take it.

After seven years of having this role in your life, did you feel any letdown or hangover after you moved on to the next job?
There was no letdown. I was very happy to let this guy go. I wouldn’t say it was a burden, because I felt so privileged to do it, but there were moments where it was a real crossover. I stayed in character for the three months we were doing this. I, for one second, wouldn’t say I was him for that time, but I felt a little bit of what it may have been like. Just because you have to take it on. He lived through 13 years of that. I was very happy to walk away. I tell you that much.
