The Miss Sofia Coppola Seminary For Eternal Admirers
Huffington Post - 8 months
THE AIR THAT I BREATHE “I didn’t know what I wanted to do next, but I knew I wanted to do something that was really beautiful.”  Sofia Coppola’s movies reveal her contradictions. She is a director whose Hollywood inauguration was a birthright, thanks to an illustrious family tree and a luckless child-acting stint she never wanted. Fleeting youthfulness lies at the center of her stories: the troubled teens in “The Virgin Suicides” and “The Bling Ring,” the aging actors adrift in “Lost in Translation” and “Somewhere,” the callow duchess thrust into notoriety in “Marie Antoinette,” and now the repressed boarding-school denizens in “The Beguiled.” Her characters seek better horizons, but Coppola is nothing if not resolute, sophisticated, singular. In the words of “Bling Ring” star Israel Broussard, Coppola has a “motherly essence and gracefulness.” According to “Virgin Suicides” matriarch Kathleen Turner, who also co-starred with Coppola in the 1986 comedy “Peggy Sue Got Marrie...

10 Eyebrows As Famous As The Men Who Own Them
Huffington Post - over 1 year
By Adam Hurly for GQ. Good eyebrows are mostly genetic — plucking will clean things up, but it can only do so much. And no two pairs are alike for the same reason: Drake’s bushy brows might look good on him, but they’d seem funny on John Boyega’s face; Boyega’s magnificently arched, ultra-friendly brows would detract from Drake’s bad-boy cred, and so on. We hope you have two reactions to brows-ing this gallery: a newfound appreciation for geometry, and gratitude that we included exactly zero unibrows. DRAKE Drake must “Take Care” of his thick brows; they look like a painter’s perfectly graduated brushstroke, and strongly complement his dark beard and mustache. RELATED: The Lazy Man’s Guide to Eyebrow Grooming ROBERT PATTINSON Pattinson has tried some oddball hairstyles, but his eyebrows remain unchanged. They’re his most distinct feature, though we won’t discredit any other part of that made-for-Hollywood mug. DANIEL RADCLIFFE Radcliffe’s brows fan inwa...

Girls of the world, if your 9-year-old selves could have been granted one single wish, what would it have been? Besides making out with Josh Hartnett. Or bestowing your Tamagotchi with eternal life.

7 Teen Movies Based On Shakespeare That Would Make Him Roll Over In His Grave
Huffington Post - almost 3 years
Happy birthday, William Shakespeare! Well, happy death day, at least. We observe both the birth and the death of the Bard on the date he died, April 23, though his birthdate has not been confirmed. Billy, not yet rolling in his grave. Here's what we do know: This is the 399th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, and his outsize importance to Western culture looms as large as ever. Christopher Marlowe would be lime-green with envy over the popularity of his one-time rival's plays; there are entire theater troupes devoted to performing Shakespeare, and the finest actors jockey to commit their portrayals of Hamlet and Lady Macbeth to film. Oh, and then there are the remixes. "West Side Story," "Kiss Me, Kate," A Thousand Acres -- many of Shakespeare's plays were themselves retellings of historical events or classic tales, and the appeal of the narratives has only grown with his magical touch. One can't help but wonder, however, if some of these adaptations would make the great...
