Nicolas Ghesquière and Grace Coddington to Speak With Alina Cho at the Met

THEY MET IN FASHION: Two of the fashion world’s more elusive personalities — Nicolas Ghesquière and Grace Coddington — will sit down for a conversation with Alina Cho at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Oct. 22.
Ghesquière, artistic director of Louis Vuitton’s women’s collections, and Grace Coddington, former creative director for Vogue, have a lot of common ground in and out of fashion. They will speak about their recent collaboration for Louis Vuitton, their love of animals and future plans. One shared commitment is their chat on “Face to Grace,” Coddington’s new Made to Measure series.
In next month’s installment of “The Atelier With Alina Cho,” the pair will have a good deal to discuss, given their contributions to the fashion industry. Their creativity and stewardship has led to an understanding of fashion as art — a topic that will no doubt be a hit with guests in the audience.
In May, Ghesquière renewed his contract with the LVMH Moët Hennessy-owned Louis Vuitton. The designer first took on the role in 2013, following in the footsteps of Marc Jacobs. With Ghesquière’s creative input, the world’s biggest luxury brand reported “unprecedented” growth in ready-to-wear and leather goods in a statement last spring. His

Inside Nicolas Cage’s Most Insane, Hell-Raising Performance Yet

RLJE Films

Mandy is the greatest psychotropic prog-metal blood-orgy revenge nightmare ever committed to film, and credit for its dark, trippy majesty goes to writer/director Panos Cosmatos.

Teaming with stars Nicolas Cage, Andrea Riseborough and Linus Roache, cinematographer Benjamin Loeb, and acclaimed composer Jóhann Jóhannsson (who passed away shortly after completing his score), Cosmatos’ follow-up to his 2011 cult hit Beyond the Black Rainbow is yet another mind-melting effort that defies easy (or reserved) categorization. The story of a lumberjack named Red Miller (Cage) who goes on a hell-raising rampage after cult lunatics, led by wacko folk singer-turned-guru Jeremiah Sand (Roache), prey upon his wife Mandy (Riseborough), it’s a dreamy descent into pits of despair, a furious explosion of unbridled rage, and a sexualized journey through a demonic 1980s netherworld populated by fanatical degenerates and unholy blood-guzzling biker-assassins.

In short, it’s a one-of-a-kind freak-out that head-bangs to the beat of its own deranged drum. That, in turn, makes it a fitting companion piece to Black Rainbow, as well as additional proof that the 44-year-old writer/director (son of Tombstone helmer George P. Cosmatos) is one of genre cinema’s true visionaries. Employing hallucinatory aesthetics and alternately spacey and intense-to-the-point-of-insanity performances—led by a phenomenal Cage turn of mounting fury and hysteria—Cosmatos conjures up an entrancing mood of ethereal apocalyptic dread, perverse desire and unstoppable wrath.

Superman Fan Nicolas Cage Is Voicing Superman in ‘Teen Titans Go! To the Movies’

Superman Fan Nicolas Cage Is Voicing Superman in 'Teen Titans Go! To the Movies'

Nicolas Cage loves Superman. He loves the character so much that he even named his son Kal-El, which is the iconic DC superhero's real name. So it had to have been very exciting for the Oscar-winning actor to be cast as the Man of Steel back in the mid 1990s. Cage signed on to star in Superman Lives, a movie to be scripted by Kevin Smith and helmed by Tim Burton.

Unfortunately the production fell apart before shooting began. Cage must have been very disappointed. He went on to…

Nicolas Cage on Going Where Few Actors Dare: ‘I Didn’t Get Into This for Awards’

PARK CITY, Utah — Nicolas Cage really gets into character.

As legend has it, while filming his role as a cocaine-huffing, Vicodin-popping, gleefully unhinged cop in Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, Cage was spotted in between takes doing bumps of a mystery powder out of a vial. When the film’s director, Werner Herzog, approached Cage to ask what he was snorting, the actor spun around and yelled, “It’s fucking coke!

“That was an interesting day,” Cage says with a chuckle, readjusting the glistening gold rings adorning his fingers. “I had this little vial of inositol, which is a saccharine substitute. It looks like blow…but it’s not. I would do it to psych myself up all day long and really feel, from an impressionistic level, what that experience was like. And I got so into it that Werner would say, ‘Now Nee-co-las, vat is een that vial?’”

Nicolas Cage supports Time’s Up movement

OHMYGOSSIP — Nicolas Cage has said women need to be “heard and supported” in the wake of the sexual harassment scandal in Hollywood.
The ongoing scandal surrounding allegations made against several Hollywood stars has already spawned the Time’s Up and Me Too movements, and 54-year-old actor Nicolas has now thrown his support behind the causes.
Speaking to People magazine at Sundance Film Festival on Friday (19.01.18), he said: “Every opportunity I get to work with a female director – one of the best movies I ever made was ‘Valley Girl’ and I just did a picture called ‘Inconceivable’ with Maria Pulera and there was a strong female cast. I realise that the talent and creativity needs to be heard and supported and cherished.”
Nicolas’ comments come just days after Sundance Institute founder Robert Redford made a similar statement, when he highlighted the importance of women having a “stronger voice”.
He said: “Change is inevitable. I’m pretty encouraged right now. What it’s doing is bringing more opportunities for women … Women are going to have a stronger voice … I think the role of men right now is to listen.”
Nicolas and Robert aren’t the only stars ready to see change throughout Hollywood either, as actress Mira Sorvino recently revealed she was “excited” about the impact that the current discourse would have on her daughters.
She said: “I’m very excited that this movement of #MeToo and Time’s Up is taking place, not only for myself but honestly for my daughters because I cannot stand the idea that they would have to suffer what I, and just about any other woman that I have ever met, have suffered in some point in her life, if not multiple times.
“It all requires great consideration and thought. It’s not a snap-to-judgment thing. I think it’s a really wonderful awakening time for all of us as moral human beings to say that no one should ever have to be abused in their workplace, in their home, [or] harassed.”
