Jack Antonoff Shares Insight Into the Making of Taylor Swift’s ‘New Year’s Day’

Out of all the producers Taylor Swift teamed up with for her new album Reputation, one was the indie-pop favorite collaborator Jack Antonoff.

While Antonoff fronts his own band, Bleachers, he also is busy in the studio working with artists like Lorde and St. Vincent to bring their latest albums to life, too.

After Swift performed one of her Antonoff-co-written songs on Monday night’s Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to an emotional reception, the producer took to Twitter to share a little bit of the back story of the piano-driven ballad “New Year’s Day.”

“Taylor doing New Year’s Day on Fallon was beautiful,” Antonoff wrote. “That song means a lot to me. Happened so quickly at my apartment. We texted the next morning to make sure it wasn’t a dream.”

It’s the only ballad and the final track on the much-hyped album, detailing the decaying glitter of the day after a big party — and the tender nostalgia of everyday, through-thick-and-thin love. With specific references that paint a vivid, recognizable picture — “Girls carrying their shoes down in the lobby / Candle wax and Polaroids on the hardwood floor” — it might also be one of her most relatable tracks on Reputation.

Pastor Otis Moss III Shares 3 Ways to Get Involved in the Green Revolution

moss

Chicago’s South Side gets more media coverage for its gun violence than for its gardens, but Trinity United Church of Christ is telling a different story. Trinity, a massive 8,500 member, five-generation, predominantly African-American church led by a visionary pastor, has joined the green church revolution in the heart of the South Side.

Their witness is a timely one. As the perils of climate change come to an ever-more furious boil, how the church responds is as much a matter of leadership as it is morality. Leadership, because it takes a mammoth effort to mobilize such a large community toward anything, and morality because the stakes are dangerously high.

Enter Rev. Dr. Otis Moss, III, the pastor of Trinity. Rev. Moss has helped lead the rising tide of Black churches speaking out for the environment. Under Moss’ leadership, Trinity has planted the George Washington Carver community vegetable garden (which teaches young people about gardening and science), started a Black farmer’s market in a food desert, swapped out toxic cleaning chemicals for non-toxic ones, and mobilized millions of dollars to build a green roof (a roof covered in vegetation that absorbs rainfall and regulates temperature and accommodates solar power).

Our planet is groaning for prophetic churches that can live resurrection truth in the midst of a warming climate. It’s why I was particularly eager to speak to Rev. Moss. Most of us may not be part of a church with thousands of people, but we do live on the same planet, and so we must all act.

I hoped to find out how we might be a part of this moral call to lift up our communities with an environmental response. Here are three key insights that came from my conversation with Pastor Moss to get the rest of us started:

Start with understanding your own experience.

Embedded in each person’s story are all of the elements needed to develop a care for the earth. It’s just a matter, as Jesus said, to have the “eyes to see.” Spend time outside? Care about health? Want global stability (or security) and peace? Want to fight racism? Eat food? All of these can be trail markers to discover a care for the earth, even if the term “environmentalist” is too loaded.

For Moss, his family’s experience in the rural South made the cause personal.

“The kernel for all of this [greening the church] really came from my childhood and witnessing my parents speak about their experience of the South, growing up, witnessing my mother and father being very conscious about food and food justice,” he said. “Then I went to Morehouse College, and I was part of a community of men and women who were very concerned about these issues.”

This concern wasn’t just for distant polar bears; this was for his community, for his family (indeed, Moss’ wife is a food justice advocate and has played a tremendous role in this effort), and for the future of Trinity. He leads not from the “concept” of good environmental ideas; rather, these efforts are a matter of personal identity and fundamental values.

Expect push back.

Moss stepped into a long lineage of beloved leadership at Trinity, and he pushed for greening the church while he was (relative to Trinity’s 56-year history) the new kid on the block. Launching this initiative was not easy.

“I received very typical church push back. I was the new pastor with the new idea, so people said, ‘We don’t know you, therefore if you make a suggestion we push back.’”

The first step was making sure that everyone was talking about the same thing. “Environmentalist,” “green,” and “sustainability” all are loaded words, and they resonated differently with Trinity’s elder members in particular.

“When I made the announcement to renovate Trinity’s roof to be a green roof, I went to the barber to hear what people were saying, because barbers hear a lot from the community,” Moss said. “He told me that one of the older members said, ‘That new young pastor wants to put green on top of the church!’”

To clarify vocabulary, Moss created small groups—especially with the seniors. Once he could sit down with ten people at a time to share the vision, the community came alive. Suddenly, elders were telling stories of their mother’s herbal remedy, or grandparents growing organic food on the land before “organic” was even a concept. The seniors—some of whom were previously opponents of the project—became evangelists for a green church.

From there, it was a matter of bringing in as many trusted voices to speak to as many groups of people that were in the church: inviting a local actress to speak to the youth; bringing in a medical professional to convince the congregation. Moss is a prolific preacher, but he counteracted resistance to this project not by speaking more, but by listening and bringing in a chorus of voices to do the “preaching” for him.

Talk about Jesus and be the church. 

While plenty of secular non-profits plant gardens and green roofs, the church uniquely offers to the healing of the planet a narrative (and power) of the Gospel and the tenacity of Gospel-people.

“The church has a unique location of being a village,” said Moss. “I know of no other institution that has the ability to bless a baby, care for an elder, fund a scholarship for a teenager, work with a couple on the verge of divorce, organize a neighborhood after a shooting, visit people in jail, advocate against mass incarceration, have a farmers market, employ people who come out of prison, and help people understand how all of that is related to what [theologian Paul] Tillich calls ’the ultimate concern,’ the love of Christ.”

Grounded in the liberating love of Jesus, the church can move powerfully into environmental spaces offering a completely unique witness.

Each of our communities faces an overburdened Creation. We have a difficult road ahead. Despite all of this weight, Moss’ last words of advice ring true for anyone getting desiring to defend God’s Creation: “I would suggest that whatever you start, do it with a deep sense of prayer and with laughter.”

Tyler Sit is pastor of New City Church, a community based in South Minneapolis that focuses on environmental justice. Both Moss and Sit are Fellows at the Forum for Theological Exploration (FTE).

With Amazon shares soaring, Jeff Bezos is now the world’s richest man

Jeff Bezos Wealth

Amazon yesterday released its third-quarter earnings results and completely blew away even the most optimistic of analyst expectations. When the dust settled, Amazon posted revenue of $ 43.7 billion, a cool $ 1 billion more than the $ 42.1 billion analysts on Wall St. expecting. Profit wise, Amazon continued to demonstrate that it can generate a profit, however small. For the quarter gone by, Amazon posted earnings per share of 52 cents, a solid figure relative to EPS expectations of 3 cents. All told, Amazon posted $ 256 million in profits.

In the wake of Amazon’s earnings report, shares of the company began climbing in after-hours trading. When trading opened up on Friday morning, the upward trajectory continued. By mid-afternoon, shares of Amazon were up 127 points, with the stock breaking the $ 1,1000 threshold for the first time. And with shares of Amazon going through the roof, CEO Jeff Bezos has since become the wealthiest person on the planet.

112-Year-Old Woman Celebrates Birthday with a Beer — and Shares Her Secret to Longevity

To celebrate a rare milestone, one supercentenarian who still knows how to party made sure she had one of her favorite things to mark the occasion: beer.

The Sunday before her 112th birthday on October 18, Lucy Trecasse—the eighth oldest living person in the United States—celebrated with friends and family at Lund Care Center in Cabot, Pennsylvania. Trecasse spends much of her time at the center knitting, sewing or playing bingo (her favorite). Yet, every so often, she’ll open a bottle of beer, just as she did for her birthday, sharing a glass with a friend. She has long been a fan of the adult beverage—her family even brewed beer to sell to friends during Prohibition—and when asked exactly how long she has liked it, Trecasse beams with excitement.

“All my life! 112!” Trecasse tells PEOPLE. “My dad gave me a taste of beer when I was a kid, he just gave me a taste and I liked it.”

Treccase was born in Foxburg, Pennsylvania, in 1905, the year Albert Einstein introduced his Theory of Relativity, Theodore Roosevelt was inaugurated as the 26th president of the United States and the life expectancy for a woman was just 50 years old.

“There were no automobiles then. We had nothing, just a horse and wagon,” Trecasse remembers. “People came around at 4:00 and lit the lanterns on the street corners. Lamps were all we had to see by and do our homework, no electricity. It was difficult, but I survived!”

Her family was one of the first households in her area to purchase a radio, which they used listened to the nation’s first commercial radio station, KDKA. Treccase still listens to the station and their host, Marty Griffin, almost every morning.

Trecasse graduated at the top of her class at Butler High and worked as a secretary at Standard Steel Car Co., according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, becoming one of the only people from her class to land a job out of high school (something she remains proud of to this day).

She married her husband, Joseph Treccase—a doctor and World War I veteran who had an office in Pennsylvania—in 1928. She still remembers the night she was at a friend’s party and Joseph was apprehensive to approach her.

“He asked my girlfriend how old I was—he thought I wasn’t old enough to party! He finally got up nerve enough to ask me to a date,” Trecasse says. “He said he was off on Wednesday afternoon and that he was free to take me on a ride in the country. I think he had an automobile, one of the few.”

Joseph later served in World War II, and the couple was married for 52 years until his death in 1980.

At 112, Trecasse—who also seems to love to color pink just as much as she loves beer—still has some tricks up her sleeve, like reciting the alphabet backward in a matter of seconds (and she does it right on cue over the phone).

“I started when I was 4 years old, my dad made me and my brother say it backward,” she recalls. “He was our teacher. He made us learn it backward and forwards.”

Having lived so long, Trecasse has been asked many times about her secret to a long life. When it comes to that, she has two key suggestions.

“Don’t smoke!” she says. “I did not smoke, we drank milk!”

Chance the Rapper’s Intern Shares Tips and New Business Venture

chance

Since responding to Chance the Rapper’s tweet looking for an intern with a package that would impress even a Grammy-winning hiring manager, Negele “Hospey” Hospedales’ life has never been the same.


Not only did Hospey score an internship with the Chicago-based superstar, he gained an experience that he will never forget and that inspired him to build his own company.

In March, Chance tweeted what fans, including Hospey, thought was an unbelievable opportunity. “I didn’t take it too seriously at first, to be honest,” Hospey said. “Then, as soon as [Chance] tweeted out the link that said ‘this is the email you can send your applications and your decks to,’ then I was like ‘OK, he’s serious. I think I need to apply.’

Hospey immediately got to work. In less than five hours, he put together a website that included a creative cover letter, writing and design samples, his blog, and more.

The application went viral; Chance himself replied to his tweet and sent him an email. Three weeks later with a text from his new boss, his once-in-a-lifetime internship opportunity began. After his internship was completed, he decided to launch “Made By Hospey” and is looking to connect with creatives, artists, models and more that are looking to communicate their brand.

Black Enterprise had the opportunity to catch up with Hospey and hear his advice on how others can gain an internship and his new business endeavors.

(Negele “Hospey” Hospedales and Chance the Rapper. Image: Courtesy Tony Wu (@mstrwu)

 

 

When you saw Chance’s tweet, how did you come up with the idea to make a website?

I have a background in blogging and writing and I built my own WordPress blog in the past, so I figured that would be a great way to do this stuff. I knew a lot of people would be submitting pitch decks but I want to make this a little bit more exciting. 

I had the day off and I spent 4-5 hours building the website and filling in all the content. It was great because I was able to get it out the same exact day and get a little traffic behind it while some people were still conceptualizing. I think time management was a big factor.

 

It is one thing to get an internship, but another to keep it. Once you were on board, how were you able to sustain your role?

I came in prepared to work as hard as I could and do whatever I needed to do to help the team. I feel like the hardest part was adjusting to tour life; moving to a new city every two to three days, being able to work from an arena, etc. I eventually got comfortable with the people I was around and the space that I was in, knowing sometimes you do have to adjust to get certain things done. Seeing how others worked around me is something I took into consideration as well.

 

What made you want to start ‘Made By Hospey’ after the internship was over?

Being on the road with Chance especially, I looked at someone like him that has really elevated from just ‘the art’ to being a person (and brand) that people can relate to. I think that’s been a big part of his growth lately. I’m interested in is how people communicate themselves and how they can create sustainable brands that people can relate to.

I think there’s a stigma around the word ‘brand’ where you automatically think of big box brands and that type of stuff but personal branding is important. Young people and black creatives have been driving culture for such a long time that I think it’s finally time to start knowing our own value and creating our own value. Instead of always going and being the one who’s hired to work for a company to help them get shine, some people want to build their own personal brand, so that’s what I’m focusing on. I am helping people build their brand and obviously thinking about the metrics but more so how they’re communicating themselves.

 

(Negele “Hospey” Hospedales. Image: Courtesy of Tony Wu (@mstrwu))

 

 

What are three tips you would suggest for people aiming to score a highly sought after internship?

Be Unique

The key is to be unique. Be creative and show your personality because there are lots of skills lots of people can do at the end of the day, so your skill level may not be enough to set you apart. People look for personalities that will mesh with them, that will add something to the team, that will add another layer of dynamism.

Do the Unexpected

I definitely say being able to show that you can think outside of the box, that you can work fast, that you can bring something new to the table that they may not be expecting is crucial. If they’re expecting one thing and you’re able to deliver another thing, I think that’s a big part of how you will stand out.

Know that Anything is Possible

“Know that anything that you want is possible if you try for it. I always talk about this thing that I call ‘Dreamers Math.’ It says, everything only has two possibilities; either it will happen or it won’t happen. By my math that’s 50%. So anything you want, even if it’s the craziest thing possible, it either will happen or it won’t happen.

You’re already starting with a 50% chance that it’s going to happen and every skill that you teach yourself, every new connection you make, every piece of content you put out there all that’s doing is bettering your 50%.

I like to look at things that way. The harder I work, the closer I’ll get to that goal until 50% chance becomes a 60% and 75% and then all of a sudden, your craziest goals are attainable.

People get too caught up on stuff they don’t think are going to be realistic but at the end of the day, the craziest things can happen.

DWTS’ Victoria Arlen Shares Emotional Video About Re-Learning to Talk & Walk After 4 Years in a Vegetative State

 

Victoria Arlen is an ESPN personality and Paralympian swimmer and  who, at age 11, was diagnosed with a neurological condition and an autoimmune disease, which affected her spinal cord and left her in a vegetative state for four years. Arlen slowly regained the ability to speak, eat, walk, and move and now is competing on season 25 of Dancing with the Stars — and is blogging about her experience on the ABC reality show exclusively for PEOPLE. Follow Arlen, 22, and her partner Valentin Chmerkovskiy, 31, on Twitter!

When I was 10 years old, Dancing with the Stars premiered, and I told my mom, “I’m going to be on that show one day.” We, of course, had no idea that just a year later ,even surviving would seem almost impossible.

When I was sick, my parents would remember that dream and put DWTS on the TV so I could watch it. It was always a motivating factor to start my recovery but I never imagined I would actually do it.

WATCH: Interviews With Pros, Judges, Creators & More — Get Your Dancing with the Stars Fix!

When the opportunity came about to do the show, I thought about little Victoria and all the things that I’ve overcome, and I just thought this would be a really cool opportunity to show people that anything is possible.

I grew up doing tap, jazz and ballet, so I understand rhythm and movement and performing. But I’ve been out of the commission in the dancing realm for 11 years now, and learning to walk again was an incredible challenge, so I didn’t know how I would take to dancing again.

You know that feeling when your leg falls asleep and you can’t really feel it or move it? Well, that’s what my legs feel like all the time, so being fluid and graceful has been difficult. But rehearsals are going great. Val and I are having a lot of fun together. He’s an incredible dancer and teacher and friend, and he’s really helped me find my footing.

Still, it’s been a really intense and challenging experience so far. It’s been a reality check that my muscles are still really affected by my spinal cord injury, but it’s also been super empowering to see how much I’m capable of.

And there are some days I feel grateful that I can’t feel my legs, because those shoes are tearing up my feet. My arms are sore at the end of every day, but I’m lucky because I came into this very strong. I work out two to three hours a day, and being a professional athlete has helped with my endurance. My swimmer man-shoulders help.

PEOPLE’s special issue, 25 Seasons of Dancing with the Stars, is available now

With everything going on in my life, I’m really health-conscious, but dancing for hours each day has been a challenge. Well, challenge is an understatement. This is literally the hardest thing I’ve ever embarked on — and I’ve embarked on really challenging things! But it’s like climbing a mountain, you don’t stop halfway through and say, “Man, this is hard.” You just keep climbing and accept any challenge that comes along until you get to the top and get to enjoy the incredible view.

Going into tonight’s premiere, I’m nervous. But every cool thing I’ve done, I’ve been nervous, so that’s a good thing. I’m going to channel that into great energy when I get out there. It’s surreal for me to be here and emotional in this beautiful way. I hope I prove to myself and to everyone watching that anyone can accomplish anything.

Million-Dollar Real Estate Broker and Investor Shares How to Build a Real Estate Empire

Kito Johnson

Kito J. Johnson, broker and CEO of Buy n Sell Inc., is a serial entrepreneur, seasoned investor, and accomplished real estate broker. Johnson has over 1,000 transactions under his belt and has established himself as an educator and mentor to both new and seasoned investors. With a passion for generational wealth, Johnson is also founder and host of The Generational Wealth Summit, which brings entrepreneurs and real estate professionals together from the local market and around the country for an all-day event.

Johnson sat down with Black Enterprise to discuss how he got started, his failed businesses, recovering from the 2008 economic crisis, and becoming a single dad.

(Image: Kito J. Johnson, CEO of Buy N Sell Inc.)

 

Black Enterprise: How did you get started in entrepreneurship?

“My dad is an entrepreneur and risk taker. He was always involved in some business endeavor. He had a general contracting company, concrete business, and even did residential construction. He was always involved in entrepreneurial pursuits, and from that, I guess I got the gene.

We were always on a roller coaster in my household. He would do well in business, and then he would go downhill and make some bad decisions. When I was 13, my dad was on another great streak in business and doing well. He had a new business partner, and he came home one day nearly in tears because he found out that his business partner had stolen $ 140,000 and disappeared.”

 

Black Enterprise: How did your family recover from that loss?

“My dad had struggled to recover from that $ 140,000 loss. We decided to fold his company, went bankrupt, and started another company. When I was 20, the company was doing great. We had about 22 people on staff and I had a payroll and managed about $ 20,000 a week. I ended up making some not-so-great decisions, and so we found ourselves heading downhill and ended up folding the company. I started a church and pastored for a while, but in the back of my mind, I was always very interested in real estate and came across Robert Kiyosaki’s book, Rich Dad Poor Dad.

At 22-years-old, I ended up marrying, and I moved from my parents’ house into a fixer-upper. I didn’t know anything about investing in real estate. I just had an eye for an opportunity. So, I bought the house. I put the house under contract and hoped to buy it before getting married. When I went to get the loan on the house, I found out I couldn’t get a loan, traditional mortgage, because it was in such disrepair that it didn’t qualify for a conventional mortgage. I ended up negotiating a lease purchase. I leased it from the owner for six months. During that six months, I renovated the house, got a mortgage, bought the house, and my wife and I lived there. Every two years we were moving and using the lease purchase strategy—we were buying something, selling something, and leasing something.”

 

Black Enterprise: Were you affected by the 2008 economic crisis?

“Just before the economic crisis, my wife and I had 17 properties. We were doing pretty well in real estate, and we still had the ministry thing going on the side. In 2008, I lost everything. I lost not only my houses, but I also lost my wife. And so I’m a single dad. My wife passed away in 2008. So, I had all of that hit me at one time.

I suddenly found myself pastoring a struggling church, houses gone, broke, and my wife just passed away and my daughter at the time was 1-years-old. I had to gather myself. For the next two years, I didn’t do anything. And then I decided, “Now, I’m not sure if I want the real estate thing anymore.” I decided to go back to school. I went to Kennesaw State to finish a degree that I never finished, I was 33 at the time; a full-time college student, on campus every day, and a single dad in the afternoon.”

 

Black Enterprise What helped you reignite your passion for real estate?

“I met a guy by the name of Mark Spain; he came across my résumé. Mark Spain is a well-known broker in Atlanta and wanted me to work on his team, with investors. Mark knew that I worked with investors in the past. When May rolled around, I graduated from Kennesaw State and joined his team, and all of my passion for real estate came back. Working with him for about a year, I sold 98 houses, about $ 14 million worth of real estate. I found my place again.”

 

Black Enterprise: Do you have any advice for those interested in real estate investing?

“It is possible to start wherever you are. Real estate investing starts very much so with one’s mind set and the first thing any individual has to know is that there’s opportunity available to them. And then you begin to build or discover a strategy around where you are. A lot of people fail with real estate investing because they don’t know where they stand. They hear that somebody is wholesaling and they say, “OK, that’s what I need to do.” Or they turn on HGTV, and they think that investing is buying a house and putting money in it and flipping it. Those are just one or two or three of many, many, many strategies. And the way you determine which strategy is best for you is, you first have to sit down and evaluate where you are time, money, and credit-wise.”

Former White House Photographer Pete Souza Shares Anecdotes About Barack Obama, Italy & More

Since former United States President Barack Obama exited the White House at the beginning of this year, former Chief Official White House Photographer Pete Souza has taken on an unlikely sort of celebrity status among a wide swath of online enthusiasts. Last week, Souza headed to The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City for an extensive exchange with Adobe‘s Director of Photography Product Management Tom Hogarty. Sitting down in front of a packed NYC crowd, Souza used the intimate setting as an opportunity to open up about getting the perfect shot, social media, memes and more.

“The good thing was that, with President Obama, you never knew what was going to happen,” shares Souza, recalling his time spent with former President Barack Obama. “He might have a question about something, and instead of calling that person on the phone, he would walk down to the West Wing basement to their office – just walk in. So that sort of made it interesting, in the sense that you never knew what was going to happen.”

While Souza did indulge more technical questions, he was at his best when the time came to share stories from his dream-career. Most notably, the former White House Photographer had the following to say regarding a trip to Italy:

“I took the bus into Verona and spent the day taking street pictures with my iPhone in a square format in black and white. That was the way I thought. For like five hours, that’s what I did, was just trying to make square pictures. I was doing all kinds of funky stuff, I was doing pictures from the hip and kind of like grab shots. I was just having fun, trying to exercise my mind in that way, thinking in black and white, thinking square, thinking, ‘Okay, even though I have a regular camera around my shoulder, I’m mostly shooting with my iPhone.’ So, I’m trying to do those things when I can.”

Elsewhere, Souza entertained with an anecdote involving the opening night of Washington, D.C.’s African American museum:

“Im a span of 30 seconds, I made two pictures that I’m still proud of to this day. One was President Bush, who was also there, handed his smartphone to President Obama, and he’s like, ‘Hey, Barack, take a picture for me.’ So, it’s like a picture of President Obama with an iPhone taking a picture of President Bush and some other people. It’s kind of a funny picture. And then, 30 seconds later, Vice President Biden got down on his knees. There was a woman who was a descendant of a slave in a wheelchair who was honored in this event, and he had gotten down and was kneeling on the pavement and was like, right on her face talking to her, and it was a really nice picture. So, that happened, boom boom, so I wanted to call Kathy up and say, “Screw you.'”

Besides putting a human face to the man behind the lens of some of modern American history’s most significant shots, the 62-year-old former journalist revealed the following to sum up his time in The White House:

“I don’t think that I’m the best photographer in the world. I think I’m a competent photographer. But I think I was the right person to be Barack Obama’s photographer. We kind of have the same generation. I had established a professional relationship with him coming in. I spent a lot of time with him when he was a senator, so he got to know me and saw how I worked. He liked my pictures. He could see that I was truly trying to capture things as they happened, not do a hatchet job … I’m a stubborn individual. I knew the way the job should be done, and I was determined to do it that way. It also means knowing when to give him some space, especially when you’re being photographed all day long, every day … I think I tried to accurately portray what happened, what he was like. And I think ultimately, other people are going to have to judge how I did. Clearly, when you’re in that position, you’re not a photojournalist, but my background is as a photojournalist. I tried to approach documenting for history the same way.”

To experience some of Pete Souza’s tales for yourself, take a look at his unbelievably extensive photo archives.

A Momager Shares Tips For Raising CEO Kids

kids

kids

 

Nowadays, it’s not uncommon to hear about wildly successful CEOs who started at a young age. So if you’ve ever thought to yourself “that could be my child,” meet the founder  of Raising a Mogul TV & Podcast Tamara Lewis. Lewis is a mom to 16-year-old Zandra Azariah Cunningham, a beauty boss and founder of Zandra Beauty, a product line featuring everything from sugar scrubs and facial bars to shea butter and lip balms. Below she shares her advice for raising entrepreneurial children.

 

Zandra became an entrepreneur at 9 years old. What’s your best advice for a parent whose child wants to start a business at an early age?

  1. Start with research. Help your child learn as much as possible about the product or service they want to offer.
  2. Start local. Take advantage of local free or low-cost business programs, mentoring or networking groups that will allow your child the chance to engage in the business world.
  3. Connect them to a mentor in the same industry if possible. Time commitments, expectations, skill development and more, can all be determined quickly by spending time with a local baker, landscaper, or photographer. Before you invest money, it’s important for you to see your child is prepared, committed, and ready for all the hard work, let down, and, at times, being overwhelmed, ahead.

They may be young but they are resilient—no baby talk, no chasers, the world is real and it’s your job to prepare them for it.

 

What have been some of the points of your journey when you realized Zandra had something special on her hands? 

I knew she had embarked on something special when I saw how young people, especially little girls, responded to her. She made them feel that they too can be a” Zandra.” I love it, it’s powerful to witness.

I also knew she was committed to entrepreneurship when she launched her Young Mogul Prep School to guide other young people through the process of becoming change makers in their families and communities. Another time, I watched her challenge a room full of banking professionals to do better, dream bigger, and consider mentorship, I knew Zandra had the chops, stamina, and respect for the business. Often I am shocked, surprised, and enlightened as I watch her work.

The musician released a book titled To Selena, With Love in 2012 and this past April, he post their marriage license on Instagram in celebration of what would have been their 25th wedding anniversary. Now, he’s sharing a funny moment he had with the Tejano singer in which he woke her from a deep sleep to listen to his favorite band’s new single:

“Just heard this song again tonight from one of my favorite bands #Extreme…and I had a memory…late night in our Los Angeles hotel room @the Bel’age on the Sunset Strip…Selena was craaaaaashed out, and I was still up in bed watching some super late night tv show (as usual, LOL!),” he wrote. “My absolute FAVORITE band at the time was #EXTREME…and I hear the host say, “we’ll be right back with Extreme!” What do you think I did? Damn right…I started waking her up (which was a super NO NO) and saying, “WAKE UP! Extreme is coming on, and they’re playing their new single!” She woke up, stayed up with me, and we JAMMED this song while we watched the LIVE performance for the first time together on tv.”

Perez also shared the video of the Extreme performance they watched that night.

Facebook fans were delighted by the story and many thanked him for sharing it. “Thank you for sharing Chris. I just love hearing your stories with Selena. It’s weird, but I feel like I know you guys without even meeting you,” wrote one user.

Quintanilla and Perez eloped after a few months of dating and had been married for three years when the Texas-born singer was murdered by her fan club president in 1995.

Harry Shares His Regret Over Last Phone Call with Mom Diana: ‘If I’d Known … the Things I Would Have Said to Her’

Prince William and Prince Harry have shared poignant new photographs from their personal collection of their late mother, Princess Diana, as they open up about her life and legacy in a new documentary.

The deeply personal photos come from albums that the princes have been looking over in memory of the mother as part of ITV’s Our Mother Diana: Her Life and Legacy special, which airs in the U.K. on Monday. August 31 will mark the 20th anniversary of Diana’s death in a Paris car crash.

The documentary features appearances by Diana’s brother Charles Spencer, Elton John and Rihanna, who took an HIV test alongside Harry in Barbados last December to help break the stigma of getting tested. Diana was an early and very public campaigner for HIV and AIDS awareness and treatment.

The princes, who say that they will not speak out at length about her like this again, also talk movingly about the fact that their last phone call from her – on the day she died – was so short. Being such young boys, aged 15 and 12 respectively, they were keen to get to back to playing with their cousins at the Queen’s Scottish retreat, Balmoral. “And if I’d known that that was the last time I was going to speak to my mother the things that I would – the things I would have said to her,” Harry says in the documentary.

While discussing the documentary with reporters — including PEOPLE — at a meeting in Kensington Palace, William said, “This is a tribute from her sons to her.” He added that standing before a group about to watch the documentary was “possibly the most nervous I’ve ever been.”

“It’s one thing doing a documentary like this and it’s another thing standing front of all of you guys and explaining about something very personal to you,” he said. “Nevertheless, I think it’s very important that I’m here to do that.”

RELATED VIDEO: ‘They Will Never Know Her’: Prince William Admits He’s Sad Princess Diana Will Never Meet His Family

And William – who like Harry finds talking about his mother so intensely and publicly difficult — vowed, “We won’t speak as openly and as publicly about her again.”

He added, “We feel hopefully this film will provide the other side from her close family friends that you might not have heard from before, from those who knew her best, and from those who want to protect her memory and want to remind people of the person that she was: The warmth, the humor, and what she was like as a mother, which probably hasn’t come across before in many other pieces from other people.”

Harry also revealed he has only cried tears of grief twice – at her graveside at Althorp on September 6, 1997, and since then “maybe, maybe once. ”

“So there’s, you know, there’s a lot of — there’s a lot of grief that still needs to be let out.”

Harry added “There’s not a day that William and I don’t wish that she was still around, and we wonder what kind of a mother she would be now, and what kind of a public role she would have, and what a difference she would be making.”

RELATED VIDEO: William Reveals His Mom’s Supermodel Surprise in a Sneak Peek from Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy 

Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy will air Monday at 9 p.m. in the U.K. on ITV.

The show is one of several commemorations of the Princess in print and on film. PEOPLE and ABC have partnered in a two-night television event The Story of Diana, airing on Aug. 9 and 10 at 9 p.m. ET.

Trisha Yearwood Shares Her And Garth Brooks’ Recipe For A Successful Marriage

Long before Trisha Yearwood was a lifestyle guru, she was on the top of the music charts, selling out concerts and performing for adoring fans. The “She’s in Love with the Boy” singer was, and still is, a critical success, and her working and personal partnership with Garth Brooks has something to do with it.

After two divorces, Yearwood realized that maybe the man of her dreams had been right in front of her for years. In the 2000s, after Brooks ended his marriage to his college sweetheart, he took time off from music and eventually romantically reconnected with Yearwood after nearly 15 years of friendship. A love blossomed and the pair became engaged in May 2005 and got married later that year. 

They recently celebrated their 11th anniversary. 

“We have been friends for such a long time. Our relationship is based on a very deep friendship that we’ve had, so we were in the position of knowing each other as friends before we ever went on a date,” Yearwood told HuffPost of their marriage during a recent Build Series interview. “I think a lot of times you are ― just speaking for myself ― down the road in your relationship before you really get to know the person well enough to get to know if you really like them or not, and liking someone is as important as loving someone. And so we laugh a lot. When we’re not all lovey-dovey and passionate, we’re still best friends, so it’s just the way it works.”

Yearwood, who stars on an Emmy-winning cooking show, “Trisha’s Southern Kitchen,” and has a new line of products with Williams Sonoma, says Brooks is not just her husband but a true partner in life. 

“He’s whatever I need him to be; He can be my best friend, he can be my lover, he can be my shopper ― if I need a dress for an event and I don’t have time to go shopping, this guy can buy a dress and it’s gorgeous and it fits ― he’s fantastic,” she said. “He’s all those things that you need him to be and I think at the center of it is a true respect and love for each other, and a friendship.” 

Something else that helps Brooks’ case is his coffee-making skills

“My husband doesn’t drink coffee ― which I don’t trust people who don’t drink coffee, but I do love him ― but he makes my coffee every morning and he makes really good coffee, so he can stay,” she joked.

Prince William Shares His Heartbreak on the ‘Shock’ of Losing His Mom, Princess Diana: ‘You Never Get Over It’

In a candid admission, Prince William says he is still in shock over the sudden death of his mother, Princess Diana — even nearly 20 years later.

“The shock is the biggest thing,” he says in the new BBC documentary Mind Over Marathon, which airs in the U.K. on Thursday. “I still feel, 20 years later about my mother, I still have shock within me . . . People say shock can’t last that long, but it does. You never get over it. It’s such an unbelievably big moment in your life that it never leaves you, you just learn to deal with it.”

In Mind Over Marathon, which follows the story of 10 London Marathon runners who struggle with issues relating to mental health, William talks about his personal loss — as well as how he learned to handle his grief.

Speaking to host Nick Knowles, William explained that for him,  accepting  that it’s okay to feel this way helped him process his pain.

You try and understand your emotions a lot more than probably someone who’s just lived life without issues, and that’s quite critical,” he says. “It’s explaining to them what those emotions mean, why they feel like they do. Once you start rationalizing a little bit and you understand, Okay, so I’m a little angry or a little down or a little upset about something, then you can kind of relativize it and sort of deal with it.”

William cited his own struggles as the reason he is so passionate about mental health today through his Heads Together campaign alongside Princess Kate and Prince Harry.

“I have my own reasons for being involved in mental health: What happened to me and my mother when I was younger,” he says. “It all comes back down to mental health.”

Earlier in the week, Prince Harry spoke out about the difficult times he faced himself after Princess Diana’s 1997 death, saying that he “shut down” his emotions in the aftermath.

“My way of dealing with it was sticking in my head in the sand, refusing to ever think about my mum, because why would that help, it’s only going to make you sad, it’s not going to bring her back,” Harry told The Telegraph. 

Also during the documentary, William speaks with Rhian Burke, 39, whose husband killed himself five days after the death of their son. Burke asked William about his experience growing up after the loss of one parent, and was looking for reassurance that her children would eventually heal.

“They’ll be absolutely fine,” he said. “With a mum like you they’ll be absolutely fine. It’s true, they will be. Because you’re aware of all this, you’re already a step ahead of what could happen.”

Burke said that when her son died, the family received no professional support, and after her husband died, they were left “completely abandoned.” To try to ensure no one else has to deal with what she has, which left her facing anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and depression, she founded a a child bereavement charity.

In another scene in the documentary, William, Harry, and Kate speak to the runners about their lives and mental health struggles. All but one of the runners they spoke to are competing in this year’s London Marathon on behalf of Heads Together.

Kate spoke with Shereece Foster, 24, from London, a singer, former X-Factor contestant and mother who has battled postpartum depression and suicidal thoughts.

Shereece confessed she had found it difficult to train while looking after her two children. 

When Foster told Kate that she had trouble finding time to train for Sunday’s race while looking after her two children, Kate replied: “I don’t know how you find the time!”

Kate then commended Foster and the rest of the runners for being open about their battles with mental health issues. 

“You’re the heroes really, because you’re standing up there very bravely telling your stories,” she said. “We hope to shine a light on people like you, because I think that’s what the public need to hear.”

Model Who Used To Eat 500 Calories A Day Shares Stunning Transformation

Horror stories from within the modeling industry are all too common, but each time a new one comes out, it serves as an opportunity to highlight the change that needs to happen toward a healthier, more inclusive environment. It also provides an outlet for the brave women who share those stories. 

Liza Golden-Bhojwani, a model who currently lives in India, has been in and out of the modeling industry over the years, most recently getting back to work in 2016. She recently shared harrowing side-by-side images of herself ― one from her first Fashion Week in 2012, and one from today. 

A little flashback Friday action for you. This caption will be long and won't fit, so if you'd like to read please find the rest in the comment section….The left side was me at the start of the peak of my career. My first proper fashion week where I was actually the size I needed to be. I was booking amazing shows that one never thinks they actually could, walking with girls who I once looked up to, it was a serious adrenaline rush…but after fainting one night in my apt whilst preparing one of my very low cal meals (I think it was 20 pieces of steamed edamame if I remember correctly), I called it quits with the diet and workout regime I was put on and decided I could do it on my own. I thought to myself, I can still be this thin, but I'll just eat a little more so I don't feel so horrible. Well, eating a little more turned into eating nearly a bag full of almonds, which then turned into eating full size meals, which then turned into a full blown binge. I was craving every single food you could imagine and I was giving in to every craving even though I knew this was such an important time in my career. I made it through NYFW okay, no one had noticed any weight gain, but by the time I had gotten the LFW I could see the pounds starting to show both in the mirror and on the measuring tape, but I kept quiet obviously not wanting to sabotage myself. I found myself going to the grocery store and picking up raw vegetables to try and make up for the near two week binge I had in NY, but I didn't see any weight coming off no matter how "healthy" I was eating and no matter how many workouts I fit in. MFW came and I knew I was bigger and by bigger I mean a 35.5in hip rather than the 34.5in hip I started with in NY, I played it cool and just pretended everything was normal. I did end up booking shows, Dolce & Gabbana being one of them. Which I afterwards received online criticism about my thighs looking fat…Anyways PFW came about, and I found it impossible to resist those chocolate croissants I went on many a casting with one exclusive option being on my schedule, but after meeting the client I knew the reason for me not nailing the gig, my size…

A post shared by Liza Golden-Bhojwani (@lizagoldenreal) on

In a lengthy accompanying caption, she heartbreakingly referred to her size in the left photo as what she “needed to be” to actually book runway jobs.

Bhojwani unraveled the struggle she faced during that first fateful string of shows, where she recalled eating 20 pieces of steamed edamame as a meal and binge eating her way up from a 34.5- to a 36.5-inch hip measurement throughout the month. She explained that as she traveled from London to Milan to Paris, the show offers dwindled. “I knew the reason for me not nailing the gig, my size,” she wrote.

I just wanted to put this out there… if you see me hashtag #unretouched on a photo, I truly mean it is not retouched at all. My husband shoots with me an i7plus or a Canon G9x in my personal pics…I have been modelling for 10 years and counting, so I know how to pose, angle my body, and I know what light works. All it really takes is good lighting to get a pretty amazing photo even with an iPhone! I have no reason to lie about photoshopping, I am constantly photoshopped in most of my photos because I am a model and at the end of the day whatever the client wants is what they get…On another note, for those of you who are constantly telling me to exercise save your breath! For the 20th time, I work out 5 times a week with a personal trainer, I have toned my stomach/bum up a lot in the past few weeks, clearly enough to make some of you think I'm sitting around photoshopping my candid insta pics. If you're looking for a size 0 model, unfollow me, get off my page, and follow someone else. That's not me, and never will be me again. I am the healthiest and strongest I have ever been. And that is all I care about. Before you open your mouth to comment on someone else's physical appearance on social media, look in the mirror and ask yourself "Do I love myself?". If you truly love yourself, you would never publicly abuse another human being with harsh words and comments. Freedom of speech does not mean you should feel free to abuse people. Spread love, not hate. #loveyourself #unretouched #naturallight #thisisme #effyourbeautystandards #shineon #bodypositive #lovetheskinyourein Photo credit: @thirdeyejedi

A post shared by Liza Golden-Bhojwani (@lizagoldenreal) on

In 2014, she decided to revisit modeling and got into shape in a healthier way, through exercise and a more sustainable diet. But even though she called it the most fit she’d been in her life, it still wasn’t enough “for the likes of VS [Victoria’s Secret] or other brands.”

It was on a trip to India, Bhojwani explained, when things changed. She met her now husband, picked up all her belongings and moved there. Now not only does she have a healthier outlook on life, but she also has a totally different relationship with her body.

“The picture on the right of me as of right now, my body as it is,” she wrote. “Not perfect, not show ready or VS ready, not the best, but it is mine and my soul is happy.”

Bhowjani also wrote that now she works out, eats what she wants without feeling guilty about it and does it all solely for herself. “Maybe I wasn’t made to be on the covers of magazines and shooting the biggest and best brands, but I was made for a reason,” she wrote. “I do deserve to be happy and feel fulfilled. We all do. Maybe I was made to share this story and spread the message of body love to all the women out there struggling.”

While we wouldn’t exactly agree that Bhojwani doesn’t belong as the front of a major photoshoot, we are inspired by her honesty, her story and her words of self-love.

All white everything ❤ #bodylove #loveyourself #effyourbeautystandards

Christina El Moussa Says Yoga Helped Her Cope with Her Divorce — and Shares Her Fitness Secrets!

Christina El Moussa has been open about her difficult decision to split from her husband of seven years, Tarek, and says working out has helped get her through.

“Exercise is my stress reliever,” the Flip or Flop star, 33, tells PEOPLE.

El Moussa does a combination of running and yoga to help her feel her best.

“There is nothing like a good three-mile run for me to really clear my head and get my endorphins going,” she says. “My other go-to is yoga. I have the most amazing private instructor who has changed my life. Our sessions are very spiritual and have really helped me cope with my divorce and other emotions I’m going through during this time.”

The home design expert practices yin yoga, which includes a lot of meditation.

“I love it so much, it’s inspired me to take a trip to Bali this summer,” she says. “I can’t wait!”

El Moussa has also recently started taking circuit-based classes at Orangetheory Fitness.

“I discovered Orangetheory and I’m totally hooked!” she says. “It combines running, which is my favorite workout, with weight training, which I never do on my own. It goes by super quickly and is always challenging. And it helped to get me in the best shape of my 30s!”

And it definitely shows! El Moussa recently showcased her fit physique while doing a photo shoot for L*Space’s Mommy & Me line “Little L.”

When it comes to nutrition, El Moussa sticks to “a very clean, organic diet.”

“My kids have food allergies so we all try and limit gluten and dairy,” she says.

“I eat five small meals a day that usually consist of overnight oats for breakfast, a green juice for a snack, salad with a protein for lunch, granola bar as a snack and then a healthy dinner of chicken or salmon and veggies, tacos or vegan chili,” says El Moussa. “For a little dessert, I love Justin’s Organic Mini Peanut Butter Cups — delish!”

Christopher Meloni Shares the Sweet Story of How Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer Comforted Him After His Mother’s Death

Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer extended their condolences to Christopher Meloni when they learned about his mother’s passing in the sweetest — and most humorous — way.

Speaking with The Talk co-hosts on Wednesday, the former Law & Order: SVU actor shared the story about how the two actresses comforted him on set just a day after his mother died.

“We were shooting in Hawaii and I did a few of my scenes for a couple weeks there and then they said ‘We’re not going to need you for a while, so you go home.’ So I went back east and unfortunately my mother got ill and so she passed,” Meloni, 55, said on the talk show. “I actually had to leave her bedside, flew and by the time I landed, she had passed. So no one knew except for the producers and the director and they were all very sweet and kind.”

Early the next morning, Meloni said that he was working on more scene with Hawn and Schumer on the set of Snatched and the trio had to take a little boat up the river to film.

“Goldie Hawn and I start talking. I say, ‘I just came from D.C. That’s where I was.’ And she was like, ‘D.C.? What were you doing in D.C.?’ She goes, ‘I’m from D.C.’ … and she says, ‘What were you doing in D.C.’ And I didn’t want to be coy about it — and I also didn’t want to make a big deal — but I said, ‘Well, to be honest, my mother passed,’ ” Meloni explained to the 71-year-old actress.

“Oh, she grabs me. … And she hugs me tight. She goes, ‘I know, I know,’ ” Meloni described about Hawn’s warm embrace. “I was like, ‘Oh my God, what a beautiful —’ I needed that moment, right?”

But when Schumer, 35, found out about the death of his mom, she took a more light-hearted approach to cheering him up.

“And then Amy, she goes ‘Wait, what did you just say?’ I said, ‘Well, my mother passed.’ She goes, ‘Oh, that’s terrible. Hold on one second,’ ” he said with a laugh as he brought his cell phone to his face, copying what Schumer did when she was told the sad news.

And Schumer’s humor was just what he needed in that moment.

“I knew she was joking. … How courageous that she — she invited, she needed to diffuse all of that obvious emotion that was filling up the boat,” said Meloni, who added, “And later — this was even cuter — later she goes, ‘You know I was kidding, right?’ ”

The Talk airs weekdays (2 p.m. ET) on CBS.

John Legend Shares Adorable New Photos of Baby Luna on His 38th Birthday

A very happy birthday indeed.

Celebrating turning another year older on Wednesday, John Legend shared adorable new photos with his 8-month-old daughter Luna on Instagram.

In one snap, Legend —who’s currently on vacation with his wife Chrissy Teigen and their family — looks blissful as he snuggles his baby girl on a couch.

In another selfie, the “Love Me Now” singer is again all smiles as Luna looks off-camera (perhaps at mom?).

“Thank you for all the birthday wishes. Love you all! Enjoying this view with Chrissy and Lu, feeling grateful,” he captioned another photo that showed off his vacation views.

Teigen, 31, also gave her husband a sweet shout-out on her own Instagram account, captioning a photo of herself snuggling with Luna: “Happy birthday, beautiful papa.”

Over the weekend, the couple celebrated their first Christmas as parents by dressing up their little one in a Saint Nick onesie, complete with a plush red and white hat.

Earlier in the month, the model and cookbook author shared photos from Luna’s first meeting with Santa on her social media accounts.

Visiting a local Macy’s department store, the star posted with Luna, Saint Nick — and a photo cutout of Legend.

“When your husband is in Paris but you gotta get your Santa on,” she captioned the photo.

Julianne Hough Shares Epic Dancing Throwback with a Young Mark Ballas — and They’re Both ‘Tan AF’

Before Julianne Hough and Mark Ballas were Dancing with the Stars pros, the longtime friends danced side-by-side in competitions as kids — and Hough has epic evidence to prove it!

Hough, who serves as a judge on the ABC reality dancing competition series and has two Mirror Ball trophies to her name, shared a throwback photo of herself alongside Ballas as adolescents on Tuesday.

In the photo, Hough and Ballas don all-white costumes — and are both are very, very tan. “#dancerbaby #pastlife #tanAF,” she captioned the Instagram picture, which also documented Ballas’ days wearing braces.

Prior to becoming a household name, Hough and her brother Derek moved in with Ballas’ family (his parent’s Shirley and Corky were family friends) as children — Julianne was just 10 and Derek 13 — to train as ballroom dance pros at the prestigious London dance school Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts.

On Nov. 25, PEOPLE exclusively reported that Ballas wed his bandmate BC Jean at a venue north of Los Angeles — and tapped Derek to be his best man.

After watching his best friend say “I do,” Hough took to Instagram to pen a congratulatory message in honor of the happy couple.

“Such an honor to be the best man at my brothers wedding. Witnessing their love be sealed under a beautiful Oak tree in front of family friends was such a special moment. Like the tree May you Stand together tall and proud,” he captioned the image of the newlywed pair. “May you always Go out on a limb for one another. To Stay grounded and dig your roots in deep so that you may weather any storm . And always continue to grow, stronger and higher reaching towards the heavens. And to always enjoy the view. Love you two.”

Hairstylist Shares Rare Behind-The-Scenes Photos Of Celebrities In The ‘90s And ‘00s

With apps like Snapchat and Instagram, we basically get 24/7 access to all of our favorite celebrities. But long before stars were sharing daily selfies, people were actually taking their photos with real film.

One of those people was Jason Rail, a former celebrity hairstylist who recently unearthed his collection of polaroids from the 1990s and early 2000s. Rail spoke to Vice about his impressive picture collection, telling the outlet that he felt like a “babysitter” to the stars. 

“The thing that [people] don’t realize is that you’re almost like a psychiatrist or an emotional babysitter, because you are the last person the actor or actress sees before they go onto set,” Rail told Vice. “So if you’re complaining about rent and your boyfriends and your sick cat, you can bum people out and they can get annoyed.”

Can't we just be friends? @_mattleblanc At the playboy mansion for a little party @bartschland #pixbyjasonrail

The hairdresser added, “People don’t realize that you’re kind of in charge of feeling people out. If it’s a comedy, everyone’s generally in a pretty good mood. But if it’s an independent film there’s always someone getting killed or fucked up.” 

Rail said he hopes to one day make his incredible collection of photos into a coffee table book. Considering his penchant for befriending actors and actresses, we bet he’d have some amazing stories to tell, as well.

The Team Behind ‘Batkid Begins’ Shares Behind-The-Scenes Stories From Their Heartwarming Documentary

In 2013, the Make-A-Wish Foundation made 5-year-old leukemia patient Miles Scott’s dreams come true when they turned San Francisco into Gotham City and transformed Scott into “Batkid.” Alongside a fully-grown Batman partner, Batkid saved a damsel in distress, brought two super-villains to justice and captured the hearts of the thousands who turned up to see his crusade in person and the millions who watched online.

And on June 26, the incredible story comes to the big screen with the documentary “Batkid Begins.” On Wednesday, HuffPost Live’s Ricky Camilleri spoke to the team behind the film and the wish itself to get the behind-the-scenes story of how it all went down.

The documentary chronicles the increasingly elaborate preparation for granting Scott’s wish. Patricia Wilson, the CEO Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area, said she initially hoped for about 200 people to show up for support. When that turned into more than 25,000, organizers worried all the attention might be too much for a 5-year-old. But when the pressure was on, Bakid never hesitated for a moment.

“I tell you what, the first time he saw that costume, he just started stripping right down to his Batman underwear and put that costume on,” Wilson said. “We put the hood on and I said, ‘Who are you?’ He goes, ‘I’m Batman!’ And I thought, ‘Okay, we’ve got a real Batman here.'”

“Batkid Begins” is in select theaters June 26. Our advice: bring tissues.

Robert Duvall Shares What It Was Like to Work With His Wife Luciana In ‘Wild Horses’

Robert Duvall’s latest film is all in the family. In an interview with “The HuffPost Show” on Friday, Duvall described working with his wife Luciana Duvall in “Wild Horses,” in theaters and on demand now, and joked that she had a leg up on the competition for her role.

“To get it straight, she sleeps with the director, so that’s why she got the part,” Duvall laughed.

Luciana played along and agreed that their relationship was a factor in the casting process.

“That’s the only reason I took the part, really. [He’s the] only director I want to sleep with,” she joked.

Luciana then took a more serious tone and weighed in on her husband’s directing style. While some directors try to “force” actors to connect,” Robert takes a more hands off approach, she told host Roy Sekoff.

“Bob is very good with allowing you to be in touch with yourself. Like there were some scenes where sometimes you don’t connect. Actors, sometimes, they come on the set and they don’t connect with the scene,” she said. “Sometimes directors want them to connect with the scene, with something that is not there, so they force them to do something that is not available right now. And Bob, he said, ‘It’s just fine.'”
