Kristin Chenoweth: A Stand for Equality

It’s rare that an entertainer has an equally successful career on Broadway, in movies and on television. But then Kristin Chenoweth is rare! In the horse-racing world, she would be what’s known as a Triple Crown Winner, except for the fact that Kristin also has a recording career which makes her…well, a Quadruple Crown Winner! […]

Wisdom Gleaned from the 83rd Academy Awards

There are life lessons to be found everywhere, including the 83rd Academy Awards, which took place on February 27, 2011.

Mary Steenburgen: The Gift of Giving

“I use the word ‘other-worldly’ to describe myself, and people who know me well either complain or see it as a compliment that I seem to have one foot here and one foot somewhere else. That’s been true since I was a little girl, partly because starting when I was eight years old my dad […]

Gilles Marini: Don’t Judge This Book By Its Cover!

How many times do we make the mistake of judging a book by its cover? How many times do we make assessments and draw incorrect conclusions about people simply because of the way they look, the way they talk, what they do for a living, yada yada yada? Such is the case with Gilles Marini. […]

Anthony Hopkins: Hannibal Lecter He’s Not!

When you wake up in the morning you never know what the day will hold. I never expected that I would answer my cell phone while I was driving down the freeway and hear my editor say,  “Would you like to interview Anthony Hopkins?” “Of course I would,” I shrieked into the phone. “He’s a […]
