Nightlife Photographer Patrick McMullan Explains What It's Like To Party For A Living
Huffington Post - 5 months
When Patrick McMullan was in the ninth grade, he told his guidance counselor he didn’t know what he wanted to do with his life. When pressed to provide some sort of career outlook, he said what most teens would say: “Well, I like going to parties.” The guidance counselor was less than impressed, telling McMullan, “Well, forget it. You’re never going to find a job going to parties.”  And then, he did. McMullan, who recently syndicated his entire collection of photographs with Getty Images to increase their visibility, has become a mainstay in the celebrity nightlife scene. Over the years, he’s given us myriad iconic photos (like the one below of a young Leonardo DiCaprio goofing around in New York City.) Not only has he managed to carve a spot for himself in the industry, he’s also made plenty of famous friends along the way. McMullan’s interest in shooting celebrity nightlife stems from his general love of parties and a desire to capture all types of people. Building relat ...

Consider This Sh-t: James Franco, Scarlett Johansson & Supporting Actor Oscar Candidates
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Welcome to For Your Consideration, an unapologetically obsessive weekly conversation about the Oscar race. Between now and March 2, 2014, Vanity Fair digital director Michael Hogan and Huffington Post senior entertainment editor Christopher Rosen will survey the landscape in advance of the 86th annual Academy Awards both here and at Vanity Fair.com. Rosen: Hi there, Mike! When we last corresponded, I brought up the fledgling Oscar campaign for James Franco in "Spring Breakers." That wasn't a punchline, so much as a plea: In a year without a runaway Best Supporting Actor contender, why not Vice's No. 1 culture writer? Consider this shit: Franco gave one of the year's best performances, a soupçon of multilayered madness that spoofed modern culture, his own image and the very nature of performance itself. Gangsta rappers from Florida don't normally rate as Oscar contenders, but then again neither did a white actor in black face (Robert Downey Jr.) nor a bridesmaid who literally took a d ...

In November 2007, Huston led a letter campaign organized by the U.S. Campaign for Burma and Human Rights Action Center.

    Age 17
    In 1969, at age 18, Huston began dating photographer Bob Richardson, who was 23 years her senior.
    More Details Hide Details Their relationship lasted almost four years. She met Jack Nicholson in 1973 and they lived together, on and off, from that year until 1990, when the media reported he had fathered a child with Rebecca Broussard. She was briefly involved in a relationship with Ryan O'Neal during one of her separations from Nicholson in the late 1970s.
    She started very small indeed, substituting her hands for Deborah Kerr's in the British Casino Royale and advanced to bigger roles in 1969, starring, for example, in A Walk with Love and Death, where she played the 16-year-old French noblewoman Claudia.
    More Details Hide Details In the same year, her mother, who was 39 years old, died in a car accident, and Anjelica relocated to the U.S., where she modeled for several years. While she modeled, she worked with photographers such as Richard Avedon and Bob Richardson. Huston has an older brother, Tony, a younger maternal half-sister named Allegra, whom she called "Legs", a younger paternal half-brother, actor Danny Huston, and an adopted older brother, Pablo. She is the aunt of Boardwalk Empire actor Jack Huston. Deciding to focus more on movies, in the early 1980s she studied acting. Her first notable role was in Bob Rafelson's remake of The Postman Always Rings Twice (1981). Later, her father cast her as Maerose, daughter of a Mafia don whose love is scorned by a hit man (Jack Nicholson) in the film adaptation of Richard Condon's Mafia-satire novel Prizzi's Honor (1985). Huston won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her performance, making her the first person in Academy Award history to win an Oscar when a parent and a grandparent had also won one.
