CAST MEMBERS OF 'SEINFELD' SEND VIDEOS TO DYING FAN
Several cast members from Seinfeld created personalized videos to a terminally ill fan for his birthday before he lost his fight to cancer. 67-year-old Jim Calder received messages from the actors as the characters they portrayed on the series during its nine seasons.
His son James told The Huffington Post, "We immediately thought of his favorite TV show, Seinfeld. We started planning how to pitch this to the Seinfeld characters and started to reach out through published articles about the project, social media outreach and word of mouth. The Seinfeld birthday project was born, but we really weren’t sure how and if it would flourish." John O'Hurley, AKA J. Peterman, was the first to make a video which prompted Patrick Warburton to make a video as David Puddy.
- Other participants included Wayne Knight as Newman, Larry Thomas as Soup Nazi, and Lisa Mende as Carol.
- Julia Louis-Dreyfus also participated but did not act as Elaine.
- According to Daily Dot, Jerry Stiller also made a video as George Costanza's father but requested that the family not share them.
- Michael Richards offered to call James' father on his actual birthday but did not want to create a video.
- James did not live to see his birthday but his son showed him the videos early to try and lift his spirits.
The father of six recently told The Telegraph, "Everyone talks about the joy of having kids – blah, blah, blah. But I never knew how much I could love something until I looked in the faces of my children. There's a lot of love, a lot of fighting, a lot of refereeing; a lot of teeth-brushing and spilling. Chaos, total chaos. But so much fun." When asked if he and Angelina planned to have more kids, he responded, "Listen, Angie and I were aiming for a dozen, but we crapped out after six."
- Brad also explained how his own upbringing has influenced his approach to fatherhood saying, "One thing my folks always stressed was being capable, doing things for yourself. He was really big on integrity -- and that informed a lot of what we try to do now. I feel like my job is to show 'em around, help them find what they want to do with their life, put as many things in front of them, and pull them back when they get out of line, so they know who they are."
- Brad is father to 14-year-old Maddox, 11-year-old Pax, 10-year-old Zahara, nine-year-old Shiloh, and seven-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
DID LARK VOORHIES BLAST HER EX HUSBAND ON IG YESTERDAY?
Lark Voorhies went on Instagram yesterday (November 30th) going off on her soon to be ex husband Jimmy Green. The former Saved By The Bell star filed for divorce last month after six months of marriage. She filed for a restraining order against him as well. Voorhies wrote on IG, "To whom this may concern. I am single! Jimmy couldn't fork up a dime for our divorce. There's an active restraining order that he continues to violate. No sex tape even physically exists. Do you really think he could afford a camera? I gave him money multiple times and put minutes on his Obama phone. You better take a U-Turn on that bus. Everyone in Pasadena knows you're a joke. Gang Member? You lost your job at Taco Bell. Your penis is NOTHING to brag about! Is it normal for a penis to smell like corn chips?"
She continued, "I chose to not be in the spotlight. I am an amazing author (3 Books on Amazon) and I am currently working on a short film that I wrote & directed and putting the final touches on my highly anticipated album! I'm too busy to interact with you bugaboos. Take care and god bless! LV
- Lark later said that her IG account was hacked, saying, "My Instagram account was hacked, I never wrote such things! LV https://t.co/HJ9cVWncVB."
The director explained on Good Morning America on Monday (November 30th,) "Star Wars was always a boys' thing and a movie that dads take their sons to, and though that's still very much the case, I was really hoping this could be a movie that mothers could take their daughters to as well. I'm looking forward to kids seeing this movie and seeing themselves in it and seeing that they're capable of doing things that they never imagined possible." JJ added, "What I hope more than anything is that they see a movie that tells them that life is full of sort of unlimited possibility that there's a sense of incredible -- to use a George Lucas term, 'hope,' -- in the world, and that they feel better when they leave than when they got in there."
- It was also recently revealed in Entertainment Weekly that Leia is now referred to as General instead of Princess.
- The Force Awakens stars Daisy Ridley as Rey.
EMMA WATSON IS FINALLY FIGURING HERSELF OUT
Emma Watson admits that she is finally figuring herself out at the age of 25. She appears in the PORTER's Winter Escape Issue 12 where she discusses growing up as Hermione and what she has learned as an adult.
Emma explains, "I've spent more than half of my life pretending to be someone else. While my contemporaries were dying their hair and figuring out who they were, I was figuring out who Hermione was and how best to portray her. Now at 25, for the first time in my life I feel like I have a sense of self that I'm comfortable with. I actually do have things that I want to say and I want to be my most authentic self." She goes on to say, "I don't want there to be a big separation between the public and the private person. It's definitely the harder road to tread, but without a doubt, ultimately the most rewarding. It sounds like a ridiculous thing to say, but I'm very interested in truth, in finding ways to be messy and unsure and flawed and incredible and great and my fullest self, all wrapped into one. When you watch the work of someone like actress Emma Thompson, you feel like you're seeing something true, and I aspire to that."

If there was a real way to sit with each one of you and tell you my side of things, I would. But there's not, so I won't. There's just no need to be judgmental about situations that are not your own. Let live." Gigi added, "Sometimes life just happens.. For whatever reason in whatever timing. And sometimes it doesn't make sense til it does. That's it."

- Katie also says of her career, "I don't shy away from risks. I'm just interested in a lot of different things. I don't even think of it as a risk; I think of it as something exciting and new.

From what I have seen, the people at the top, they're just constantly working and constantly surrounding themselves with other successful, like-minded creative people."
