Prince George turns 8: See the sweet new photo of the future king

Published

on

The future king of England is growing up.

Thursday will mark Prince George of Cambridge’s 8th birthday, as the third in line to the British throne continues to grow, looking more and more the spitting image of his father, Prince William. The evening before, Kensington Palace released a new photo of the smiling young royal, who is seen perched on a Land Rover and dressed in a casual striped shirt.

The picture was taken in Norfolk, where Queen Elizabeth’s Sandringham estate is located and the Cambridges have a country retreat, Anmer Hall.

Tradition has dictated the royals release new photos to commemorate family members’ birthdays each year: Will and his wife, Duchess Kate, have previously shared special shots of their three children on each of their birthdays, a custom they started on George’s first birthday. Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan have created an amended version of that tradition since stepping down as senior royals and moving to California.

Prince George, whose eighth birthday is on Thursday, poses for a photograph taken by his mother, the Duchess of Cambridge, earlier this month in Norfolk, United Kingdom.

Some royal commentators speculated the Cambridges would not do so this year after some unkind internet comments in the past. This turned out not to be the case – though had it been, fans of the royals still would have had a new glimpse of George this year.

Duchess Kate of Cambridge joined Prince William and their son, Prince George, to cheer the England soccer team during the UEFA Euro 2020 match against Germany at Wembley Stadium in London on June 29, 2021.

Duchess Kate of Cambridge joined Prince William and their son, Prince George, to cheer the England soccer team during the UEFA Euro 2020 match against Germany at Wembley Stadium in London on June 29, 2021.

He stepped out with his parents last week for England’s Euro 2020 finals, sporting a striped red and blue tie with a blazer – a look that garnered some commentary online pitying the young boy for having to dress up for a soccer match while the rest of the stadium donned jerseys and T-shirts. Sandwiched between William and Kate, George also became an instant meme with his animated cheering.

By contrast, the annual birthday photos are more casual than last week’s business attire ensemble. Last year, George posed for shots in two different outfits: one with an olive green polo and another in a camouflage T-shirt. In some of the photos, he was joined by younger siblings Charlotte, 6, and Louis, 3.

Avid amateur photographer Kate was, as usual, the one behind the camera.

His parents have been careful in doling out snapshots of their children, in part to protect their privacy while growing up. Even these birthday pictures are carefully controlled by the palace, which imposes deadlines, usually Dec. 31, after which the media can’t use them without permission.

George, like his father, was born in London’s St. Mary’s Hospital, and even before he made his appearance, he was the world’s most famous baby. A mob of reporters, cameramen and royal fans, some of whom had been there for weeks, jostled in the street in front of the hospital door, shouting questions, cheering and applauding as the couple came out and introduced the new royal heir to a nation giddy with excitement.

“He has a good pair of lungs on him,” William told onlookers, barely audible above the noise of the crowd. “He’s a big boy; he’s quite heavy.” The baby, at that point unnamed, was 8 pounds, 6 ounces.

“It was very emotional, it is such a special time; any parent knows what this feeling is like,” Kate added.

Viola Davis’ Husband Julius Tennon: Everything To Know About The Actress’ Husband Of 18 Years

Published

on

Academy Award winner Viola Davis has been happily married to Julius Tennon for 18 years. Here’s everything to know about the actress’ husband.

Viola Davis and Julius Tennon’s marriage has a spiritual backstory — one that could, quite frankly, be the plot of a romance film. The Academy Award winner, 55, has been married to her fellow actor husband, 67, for 18 years now. The couple adopted their daughter Genesis, 11, back in 2011, completing their family of three. Viola and Julius have since become one of the most formidable A-list couples in Hollywood, supporting each other both on and off the red carpets.

Julius’ entry into Viola’s life occurred by cosmic fate. As the story goes, the actress found her life partner by way of prayer. “I was the loneliest woman in the world and someone said, ‘You should just pray for a husband,’” she told Page Six in 2013. “I said I wanted a big Black man from the South who looked like a football player, who already had children, who maybe had been married before.” Three and a half weeks later, Viola said, “I met my husband.”

Enter: Julius, a man who quite literally checked all of the boxes. Former college football player. Texas native. Previously married. Adult children. Below is everything you should know about the answer to Viola’s prayers.

Viola wed Julius in June 2003. The two share daughter Genesis together. Oprah Daily reported that Julius had been previously married before, sharing two children Sheavonda, 44, and Duriel, 41, with his former partner. Julius is an actor and producer, appearing in films like Dazed and Confused and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. He has a noteworthy TV career, too, appearing in Friday Night Lights, Moesha, Criminal Minds, and even his wife’s How to Get Away With Murder. His pre-Hollywood life is just as impressive: during his college years at the University of Tulsa, Julius became the first African American to graduate from the university’s theater department.

How Did Viola And Julius Meet?

No surprise here, but Viola and Julius met in Hollywood, on the set of the CBS series City of Angels in 1999. The actress told InStyle last November that she was immediately attracted to Julius. “I was like, ‘He’s sooo cute.’” During a joint interview on the OWN series Black Love in 2017, Julius recalled the day he asked Viola out. “I just overheard her talking to a girl in front of her saying, ‘I don’t like L.A. I don’t know anybody.’ She was kinda complaining,” he said. “I was dating a girl, who was a little bit of a monster, and I was kinda like, ‘She seems like a nice lady. She doesn’t know anybody. I’m kinda ready to meet somebody else.’ So at the end of the day, I gave her my card.”

Viola later added, “After my first date with Julius, my life got better. Anxiety went away, fear went away. He just made my life better.”

Viola Davis’ Past Relationships

Given that she and her husband have been married for decades, not much is known about the Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom star’s previous relationships. In her interview with InStyle, however, Viola joked about trying to pick up men at the bookstore pre-Julius. “The moment I met my husband, my life got better,” she said. “Before I met him, I was trying to date, but I didn’t know what I was doing. People told me to go to Barnes & Noble at Columbus Circle [in New York] because they said that was the way to pick up dudes.” She added, “I put on some makeup, but it didn’t work for me. Finally, I remember someone said, ‘Just find someone who loves you, Viola.’ And I met my husband. I found someone who loves me. That’s it.”

Viola Davis’ Top Moments With Her Husband

On Valentine’s Day weekend in 2016, Viola and Julius renewed their wedding vows in an elegant ceremony in front of loved ones. The actress’ How To Get Away With Murder costars Matt McGorry, Jack Falahee, and Karla Souza were also in attendance. Viola shared her speech in a Facebook video, in which she declared, “I really feel alive. This really makes a life. If I had to look back on my life, this is the moment that would play out and I would think, ‘Well done.’”

Last month, the happy couple celebrated their 18th wedding anniversary. “Happy 18th Anniversary to the love of my life!!” Viola captioned her Instagram tribute on June 23. “Love you Julius.” And the year before, Viola shared a rare glimpse into their wedding day for their 17th wedding anniversary (above) with snapshots from the big day and the vow renewal.  “You have made my life sweeter and my heart bigger,” the actress captioned the post. “I prayed for you and God said, Yes! I have just the right person for you!!!!’ Happy Anniversary my love… The best is yet to be.”

Moving Forward

With 18 years now under their belt, one could presume that there are only 18 more ahead for Viola and Julius. In an interview with Glamour in 2015, Viola reflected on marriage with a quote from mythologist Joseph Campbell. “It’s Joseph Campbell who said [something like], ‘When you get married, you die to yourself.’ I know that’s probably taboo in 2015, but truly, you die to yourself,” Viola mused. “Everything is for the good of the whole. My marriage enriches my life. It’s more important than my career, more important than anything. I have to prioritize it.”

As for what the next chapter of her marriage and life with Julius will be, the actress will pen a memoir, Finding Me, due out in April 2022, that will likely offer more insights on that. It will chronicle her life and illustrious career, from navigating poverty as a child in her home state of Rhode Island to becoming an award-winning actress. “I believe that our stories, and the courage to share them, is the most powerful empathetic tool we have,” Viola said in a statement. “This is my story… straight no chaser.”

Steven Spielberg’s Daughter Destry Addresses Nepotism Claims After Ben Stiller Sparks Debate – E! Online

Published

on

Steven Spielberg‘s daughter is weighing in on a debate about nepotism that was spurred by her short film. 

On Tuesday, July 27, Deadline reported that actor Hooper Penn, son of Sean Penn, had joined the cast of upcoming short film The Rightway. The project, which soon starts production in New York, is directed by Destry Spielberg, the 24-year-old daughter of the legendary Oscar-winning filmmaker, and written by Owen King, son of Stephen King

Film producer and The Black List founder Franklin Leonard responded to a tweet announcing the film by quipping, “Hollywood’s a meritocracy, right?” Franklin was making a point about the numerous individuals involved in the film having familial connections in the industry, and he has previously been vocal about the ways in which the Hollywood system tends to keep underrepresented groups from getting work, particularly behind the camera.

His tweet led Ben Stiller, whose late parents Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara were both prominent performers, to chime in with, “Too easy @franklinleonard. People, working, creating. Everyone has their path. Wish them all the best.”

Lenny Kravitz Jokes He’s ‘Ready’ To Star In ‘Magic Mike 3’ After Daughter Zoe Pokes Fun At His Latest Post

Published

on

By Liz Calvario‍, ETOnline.com.

Lenny Kravitz is ready for his “Magic Mike” debut.

The rock star posted a photo of himself showing off his six pack while building a deck outside. The photo caught the attention of many fans, but also of his daughter, Zoe Kravitz, who couldn’t help but poke fun at her dad.

Tagging Channing Tatum, Zoe commented, “You auditioning for MM3?” seemingly referring to a potential third “Magic Mike” movie.

Lenny was all game as he replied, “I’ve been ready!”

It only got better when Channing also left a comment on Lenny’s post, commenting that the rocker is more than welcome to join the cast.

“Oh sh*t!! Doing the lords work i see!! Will be calling you shortly to get into your schedule my friend. Hehehe,” Channing wrote, to which Lenny replied, “Peace my man.”

Channing starred in 2012’s “Magic Mike” and its 2015 sequel, “Magic Mike XXL”. The actor is next set to star in romantic comedy “Lost City of D” alongside Sandra Bullock.

In the film, Bullock plays a reclusive romance novelist who was sure nothing could be worse than getting stuck on a book tour with her cover model (Tatum), until a kidnapping attempt sweeps them both into a cutthroat jungle adventure, proving life can be so much stranger, and more romantic, than any of her paperback fictions.

As for Lenny, he’s co-starring alongside Jennifer Lopez and Josh Duhamel in “Shotgun Wedding”In April, J.Lo celebrated the end of filming the rom-com, in which she stars in and produces.

“That’s 👏 A 👏 Wrap! 👏 #ShotgunWedding,” Lopez captioned a series of photos from the set in the Dominican Republic. In the pics, she’s posing with her co-stars. “Shotgun Wedding” follows a couple’s destination wedding that gets hijacked by criminals and features Lopez as bride Darcy.

Lenny also posted a photo of him and Lopez, captioning the shot, “Jennifer, after knowing each other for so many years we finally got to work and be creative together. It was an experience that I will always cherish. Love and respect. Xxx #ShotgunWedding.”
