“I know that if Philip were here, he would really think this was really cool and to have him in our movies was one of the coolest things in the world, he’s one of the actors I’ve looked up to my entire life, and we think about him every day on set, so wherever he is, this definitely goes out to him as well.”

Johnny Depp Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp’s kids with Vanessa Paradis, Lily-Rose, 14, and Jack, 11, do not ask him for assistance when it comes to their homework since the actor can only provide advise with regards to music or history.  Depp said:

“As far as technology… let me put it to you this way.”

“My kids are smart enough to not come to me for any questions about the computer, even homework for that matter.”

“Unless it’s got to do with history or the future or music, I’m good.”

“If it’s math and all that, I’m down the road.”

The ‘Transcendence’ star also revealed that one of his “best experiences” is when he rides an electric Tesla car along with its creator Elon Musk until such time that they were caught for speeding.  The actor said:

“I had one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. The director introduced me to Elon Musk at Tesla. He came and visited the set and we had a ride around in his car but then the police pulled us over.”

“We had a first – maybe the first -Tesla jam. I was in the front seat while Paul Bettany was sitting on my lap. Rebecca and Wally were in the back. Elon was driving and we were pulled over speeding.”

Isn’t it an exciting experience?

Lupita Nyongo Lupita Nyongo

Despite the fact that the award season is over, it seems that Lupita Nyong’o is reigning again.  After becoming the new representative of Lancôme, Lupita is now the new cover girl of Marie Claire magazine.  Inside the magazine, the Academy Award winner actress talks about her new projects, while revealing that her incredible looks are courtesy of her stylist.

What can she say about the attention that she has been getting so far?  Lupita said:

“Being called gorgeous is not a bad thing! But at the same time, I don’t want to thrive on people’s opinions of me.”

What is Lupita’s choice of fashion and style?  The actress revealed:

“I wasn’t a follower of fashion. It was a world unknown. Then I met my stylist, Micaela Erlanger [introduced to her by friend and Non-Stop costar Michelle Dockery], and we came to interpret my style: clean lines, strong color. I don’t dress to impress; I don’t feel that pressure.”

How does she feel while waiting for the winners on award shows?  Lupita said:

“I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. It’s an internally loud moment. It’s not even about the outcome; it’s about the agony of the unknown. It’s like waiting for test results in a hospital.”

She truly looks amazing.  Do you agree?

There’s no doubt that this is definitely the year of Lupita Nyong’o.  After bringing home an Oscar award, Lupita now obtained an endorsement deal with Lancôme.  The actress is now considered as the first black celebrity spokesperson for the French beauty brand.  After the deal was announced, Lupita made a statement expressing her excitement as well as gratitude.  She said:

“I am truly honored to join the Maison Lancome, a brand with such a prestigious history that I have always loved.

This is a great opportunity for Lupita.  During her acceptance speech at Essence’s 7th Annual Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon, she talked about her early struggles and how she embraced her beauty.  She said:

“I remember a time when I too felt unbeautiful. I put on the TV and only saw pale skin, I got teased and taunted about my night-shaded skin. And my one prayer to God, the miracle worker, was that I would wake up lighter-skinned. The morning would come and I would be so excited about seeing my new skin that I would refuse to look down at myself until I was in front of a mirror because I wanted to see my fair face first. And every day I experienced the same disappointment of being just as dark as I was the day before.”

What can you say about Lupita’s new ads?

Rihanna Rihanna

Even if Rihanna is interested in pursuing waves in Hollywood but she is not willing to make any films with one particular director, Tyler Perry.  According to sources, Tyler Perry has been asking RiRi to do a romantic comedy y movie but it seems that the singer is not responding.  This is because Rihanna has been warned by Whitney Houston.  The source said:

“Although Tyler has been courting Rihanna for a year and a half, hoping to build a movie around her, she has rejected the idea. Rihanna has pointedly avoided meeting with him!”

The source further added:

“Whitney put her off Tyler by warning her bluntly that ‘Tyler’s films are for fading black stars, not rising ones. Rihanna so respected Whitney because in addition to being one of the biggest pop stars ever, she starred in hit movies such as The Bodyguard. She’s ruling out doing a Tyler Perry-style romantic comedy because she thinks she works better in action roles, playing the tough girl.”
