This Is What It Sounds Like When Women Talk About Movies
Huffington Post - 6 months
My senior year in film school, I had the privileged of working with director, writer, and producer Jocelyn Moorhouse through a mentorship program. Every week I brought in pages of my screenplays, and every week she patiently read them and gave me encouraging notes to help me through the rewriting process. When I think back on the experience now, a part of me feels sick to my stomach imagining what Jocelyn could have thought of me in some of those moments. I was 21 and stupid. I naively thought that once I exited the halls of higher education, Hollywood would open its doors to me, so enthusiastically wanting to produce every story I could ever dream up starring a bunch of women being women. Ha. Jocelyn, on the other hand, was a working Hollywood director. And a mother to four children, two of whom are autistic. And a wife to another filmmaker, meaning she had another impossibly busy schedule to manage along with her own. She was in the trenches, I was only dreaming about them, and my ...

WATCH: What You Didn't Know About Steven Spielberg
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Steven Spielberg appeared on Sunday's edition of "60 Minutes" in support of the upcoming drama "Lincoln" and revealed how his relationship with his father, Arnold, has driven his creativity over the last five decades and 27 films. "I did pin it on him," Spielberg told Lesley Stahl about his parent's divorce, which occurred when the director was just 19. In films like "E.T." and "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," the fathers leave their families behind, an unsubtle reference to how Spielberg felt after his parent's divorce. It was Spielberg's mother, Leah Adler, however, who fell in love with her husband's friend and pursued the divorce. "I think I was just protecting her, because I was in love with her," Arnold Spielberg said when asked why he didn't set the record straight with his son. As it turns out, that wouldn't have mattered: Spielberg still blamed his father even after the truth was revealed. It wasn't until Spielberg's wife, Kate Capshaw, urged a reconcil ...

Blythe Danner: Hollywood's Favorite Mom?
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
Blythe Danner is Gwyneth Paltrow's mom in real life, but the actress has an entire brood of famous children onscreen. From Cameron Diaz to Christina Applegate and Maura Tierney, Danner has played mom to a bundle of Hollywood starlets -- including her own daughter. Blythe starred with Gwyneth in 2003's"Sylvia." Danner's best known mom role is Dina Byrnes, Robert De Niro's WASP-y wife in 2000's "Meet the Parents," and its subsequent sequels, 2004's "Meet the Fockers" and 2010's "Little Fockers." Of course, she doesn't stop there. In 2005 -- and 2006 -- Blythe took home the Emmy for Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her portrayal of a manipulative-yet-irreverent mom in "Huff." Hank Azaria played her optimistic son Craig, a complete contrast to her other famous TV son, Will Truman, on "Will & Grace." Danner even played Kate Capshaw's mom in 1999's romantic comedy "The Love Letter." (We're still trying to wrap our heads around that one.) To celebrate Moth ...

Betty White's political endorsement
The Last Word Blog - almost 5 years
Follow @clarehkim Betty White stars in a newly released campaign ad for Congressman Howard Berman. Along with her Hot in Cleveland co-star Wendie Malick, White touts Berman's record as an animal advocate as a reason to vote for him — and because "he has very nice blue eyes." The Democrat, also known as the "Hollywood Congressman," represents California's 28th Congressional District, which covers parts of the San Fernando Valley. Now in his 15th term, Berman faces a heated re-election bid against fellow Democratric Congressman Brad Sherman, due to redistricting. Berman has collected large donations from Hollywood, and Betty White now has added herself to the list of celeb supporters including Tom Hanks, Bette Midler, Jeffrey Abrams and Kate Capshaw. He told Politico that support from the entertainment industry would account for around 20 percent of his financing in the race. The congressman also picked up an endorsement yesterday from the Los Angeles Times.
