Tire maker Pirelli corralled an impressive and diverse group of actresses – many with an elite fashion pedigree – for its 2017 calendar, photographed by Peter Lindbergh.

They include Alicia Vikander and Lea Seydoux, both faces for Louis Vuitton, Omega ambassador Nicole Kidman and Chanel regulars Julianne Moore, Rooney Mara and Jessica Chastain.

Shooting his third Pirelli calendar, Lindbergh chose five locations across two continents; Los Angeles, New York, Berlin, London and the Paris suburb of Le Touquet.

The other personalities are Zhang Ziyi, Uma Thurman, Robin Wright, Penelope Cruz, Lupita Nyong’o, Helen Mirren, Kate Winslet and Charlotte Rampling.

Medical entrepreneur and professor Anastasia Ignatova is listed as a special guest. She teaches political theory at Moscow State University for the International Relations and designs jewelry in her spare time, according to Pirelli.

Pirelli released only making-of images on Sunday and has yet to disclose fashion credits for the shoot, styled by Julia von Boehm with hair by Odile Gilbert and makeup by Stephane Marais.

The fashions seemed hinged on lingerie, glossy leather and cozy knits in black and white. Lindbergh also shot Pirelli calendars in 1996 and 2002.

The calendar will be released in November.

Julianne Moore Robert de Niro

David O. Russell, Julianne Moore and Robert De Niro are teaming for the latest high-wattage TV series package that is expected to hit the marketplace later this month.

Details of the project are still sketchy but it’s believed to be a serialized limited series. Russell’s reps at CAA are understood to have sent out feelers to network buyers asking for a hefty financial commitment even in advance of a formal pitch from Russell.
It’s not clear if the project is set up at a production entity yet but Scott Lambert, Alexandra Milchan and Megan Ellison are on board as producers.
Russell has developed a few TV projects over the past decade at FX, CBS and ABC, and he was an exec producer on the offbeat five-episode Syfy series “Outer Space Astronauts” in 2009. But the Moore-De Niro project would mark his most significant foray into TV. It’s unclear if there are other writers involved at this stage.

The Russell package represents the trend of A-listers assembling high-profile series packages that draw hefty bids. Earlier this year, Showtime made a two-season commitment for a drama to star Daniel Craig from producer Scott Rudin and director Todd Field, based on the Jonathan Franzen novel “Purity.”

HBO’s deal with Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson for “True Detective” set the template for projects that sidestep the traditional development process by commanding straight-to-series commitments in an auction process.

Russell earned back-to-back directing and screenwriting Oscar nominations for 2012’s Silver Linings Playbook” and 2013’s “American Hustle.” He was also nommed for directing for 2010’s “The Fighter.”

Moore won a best actress Oscar last year for her work in 2014’s “Still Alice,” and she grabbed an Emmy in 2012 for her turn as Sarah Palin in HBO’s “Game Change.”

De Niro worked with Russell on “Silving Livings Playbook,” which earned him a supporting actor Oscar nom. He’s become active in TV as a producer and he is starring in HBO’s upcoming Bernard Madoff movie “The Wizard of Lies.” He’s got two Oscars in his trophy case, for 1974’s “The Godfather Part II” and 1980’s “Raging Bull.”

Chalk up another interim win for actress Julianne Moore, as the Fairfax County, Virginia School Board voted Thursday night to study her pet issue of changing the name of her old high school.
Moore’s crusade for political correctness manifested itself in the form of her demand that the name of J.E.B. Stuart High School in Falls Church, Virginia be changed because she and one of her Hollywood friends believe it represents a “history of racism.” Civil War students will recall that Stuart was a renowned Confederate cavalry general.

To mollify Moore and others, the school board voted Thursday to form a committee to study the ramifications of changing the school’s name, which is already estimated to cost taxpayers upwards of three quarters of a million dollars. The name change is also opposed by a solid majority of people in the school district.

Moore started bemoaning the school’s name and mascot last summer, claiming that “no one should have to apologize for the name of the public high school you attended” because of its image of Stuart astride his steed carrying a Confederate flag. The fact is, the school’s symbol was changed 15 years ago to that of a silhouetted rider on horseback carrying a blue flag.

The Hollywood star attended the school between 1975 and 1977, and apparently now is a good time for Moore to break her four-decade silence on the issue. Perhaps she was too busy in the mid-70s fighting against global cooling and the threat of a new Ice Age to stake out a position on the Confederacy.

As for Stuart himself, he was simply a 19th century patriot. His great-grandfather fought the British in the American Revolution and his father fought the British again in the War of 1812, so Stuart the Younger followed in their footsteps. At the age of 15, his enlistment in the Army was declined because he was too young to serve.

Two years later, Stuart entered the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, graduating in 1854 and serving in the Army for seven years. When war broke out in 1861, the native Virginian sided with his home state and joined the Confederate Army. Three years later, he was killed in battle.

Perhaps Moore wishes to visit retribution on Stuart for the sins of his father, a Democratic Congressman who, like many of his fellow Democrats, owned other human beings. But the famed cavalry general never owned slaves. Not one.

Moore’s grandstanding personifies the axiom that Hollywood is Washington for the stupid and her obliviousness of the logic of her argument is blissful. Wouldn’t Mooreian Logic dictate that the seven original Confederate states be expelled from the United States because their very presence in the union represents a “history of racism”?

But let’s not get silly. After all, this is an individual Moore is talking about, one whose very name is apparently synonymous with racism. Under the circumstances, maybe Moore should embark on a campaign to change the name of Malcolm X Shabazz High School in Newark, New Jersey. Given his anti-Semitic rant in a 1963 Playboy interview, one should not be surprised that a Jewish student might feel some unease attending a school named for a guy who pretty much hated his heritage.

We encourage Ms. Moore to carry her J.E.B. Stuart High School crusade to its logical conclusion by championing name changes at Cesar Chavez high schools in Washington, DC, Phoenix, Delano, California and wherever else institutions of education bear the name of the man who callously referred to Mexican strikebreakers as “wetbacks.”

Of course, no such effort by Moore or anyone else in Hollywood is anticipated. The glitterati’s penchant for selective outrage and the establishment media’s appetite for elevating only those with whom they march in lockstep preclude even a modicum of intellectual honesty.

Even though most people in Fairfax County want J.E.B. Stuart High School to keep its name and avoid the exorbitant cost of changing it, Ms. Moore likely has a new ally in her quest. The newly elected chair of the local school board is Sandy Evans, whose resumé includes time as a staff writer for The Washington Post.

Evans has previously urged further study of the matter and one could be forgiven for suspecting that this study committee will do nothing more than kill time to provide activists more opportunity to coerce others to their point of view. The entire scenario suggests Stuart’s biggest battle is the one being fought over his name today.

'Money Monster' - Red Carpet Arrivals - The 69th Annual Cannes Film Festival

Julianne Moore dished out a few spoilers for her upcoming film, “Maggie’s Plan.” The actress shared how complicated divorce gets, especially when children are involved. Though it may be hard, things took a twist as their family got better.

Julianne Moore’s interview with Daily Mail revealed her views when it comes to marriage, family life, and divorce. Despite struggling to keep up with the flu, Julianne Moore managed to make it to her Daily Mail interview to dish out a few details regarding “Maggie’s Plan.”

Really, I’ll be fine,” the star of “Maggie’s Plan” tells Daily Mail when she was asked if she could still do the interview. “I’m flying home tomorrow to my family. Let’s do it.

As the interview progressed and the Oscar-winning actress felt at ease, she started to dish out “Maggie’s Plan” storyline. It was then revealed that she’s playing the role of Georgette, a “high-flying academic” whose marriage is on the verge of divorce.

In “Maggie’s Plan,” Julianne Moore’s character is married to John (portrayed by Ethan Hawk) who is an aspiring author and a lecturer at the university where Maggie (the character who’s name is the title) works as an adviser. Maggie, portrayed by Greta Gerwig, longs to have a child of her own at the age of 30, thus she’s looking for a sperm donor, who happens to be John (Ethan Hawk.)

Things started to complicate as Maggie falls in love with John, who was initially just a sperm donor. As the story progressed, Georgette and John pushed their divorce which then ended up with Maggie tying the knot with John. Though things got a bit complicated, a heartwarming twist took place as Georgette and Maggie became best friends.

I’ve had women tell me, “You know what? I love his new wife, and I’ll tell you why. It’s because the kids love her, and if they’re OK with her, then so am I,”’ the star of “Maggie’s Plan” tells the interviewer. “Whatever their differences, people usually have a common goal, and that is to make their children happy and ensure they are well cared for.
Julianne Moore then added that the movie “Maggie’s Plan” depicted the beauty of modern family wherein the first and second wife/husband would eventually share parental duties for the sake of the kids. Co-parenting may not be easy at first, especially after divorce. Psychology Today gave out a few Dos and Don’ts in making co-parenting work.

Julianne Moore

Oscar-winning actress Julianne Moore has admitted she grew up accepting that life is all about change.

Julianne Moore grew up accepting that life is all about change.

The Oscar-winning actress lived in 18 places during her childhood and has, from a very early age, always accepted that life is about change and overcoming uncertainties.

She explained: “When I was younger, I think I had a sense of direction, but I don’t know that I ever had a plan. We moved so much that I never knew where I was going to be. People said, ‘See you next summer’ and I’d be, like, ‘I don’t know…

It was always interesting to me that people did have a plan in their lives. I mean, I try to structure my life in some ways: I’ll make yoga appointments and arrange to see people for lunch.

But if they say, ‘Hey, there’s this thing in August…’ I have no idea where I’m going to be. So I tend to make short-term plans. And I’m aware that, no matter what you think, they often have to change. The only constant in life is change.

Julianne has Scottish roots and in 2011, took up dual citizenship. The actress partially decided to do it in recognition of her mother, who died seven years ago – although she admitted there are some practical benefits to having a British passport, too.

The American-born actress told the Mail on Sunday newspaper: “I have a British passport and I use it to get into London. I wave that sucker [her passport] and get right in!”

She also said that her new-found status led to a memorably humorous exchange with a fellow passenger.

Julianna recalled: “I love this – it was the very first time I came to London with my British passport. I was standing in the line at immigration and someone said [she adopts a posh English accent], ‘Darling, you’re in the wrong queue.’ And I went, ‘No, I’m not!‘”

‘I tend to make short-term plans. And I’m aware that, no matter what you think, they often have to change. The only constant in life is change,' says Julianne

In her latest role, the Oscar-winning actress plays a woman who befriends her ex-husband’s new wife. Here, the twice-married actress talks candidly to Martyn Palmer about complicated modern relationships and busting taboos

Julianne Moore is suffering from a nasty bout of flu, picked up on a whistle-stop tour of Europe.
It has been red carpets, interviews and posh frocks, which all sounds very glamorous, but it has been exhausting, too. Julianne might look pale, but then she always does, and apart from her slightly scratchy voice, you’d never guess that she was under the weather.
One of the most accomplished actresses around, Julianne, 55, won an Oscar last year for her moving portrayal of a professor with early-onset Alzheimer’s in Still Alice, having previously received other Academy Award nods for Boogie Nights, The End of the Affair, Far From Heaven and The Hours.
Other A-listers may well have cancelled their appointments if they were feeling in the least bit sniffly, but Julianne is a no-nonsense trouper (perhaps because of her Scottish roots, of which more later). Complaining isn’t her style.
Really, I’ll be fine,’ she says, sipping hot water with honey and lemon, when we meet in her Berlin hotel. ‘I’m flying home tomorrow to my family. Let’s do it.


Families, in all their ever-changing, complex permutations, are very much on the actress’s mind. Julianne’s latest project is a romcom titled Maggie’s Plan, in which she plays a high-flying academic called Georgette whose marriage is falling apart.
The Maggie of the title is a single 30-something woman, played by Greta Gerwig, who, desperate to have a child, chooses an old college acquaintance (excellent father material) to be her sperm donor.
But then she falls in love with John (Ethan Hawke), an aspiring author who lectures at the college where she works as a careers adviser, and follows her heart.
John, however, is married – to Julianne’s character Georgette. He leaves his wife and their two children, and sets up home with Maggie. The twist is that, over time, Maggie and Georgette find that they are more similar than they expect.
At first, Georgette seems frosty and work-obsessed but as the story unfolds, Georgette warms to Maggie, and the two women discover they actually like each other.
Thrown together because of shared parenting duties, they become one big, messily extended family who have to rub along for the sake of the children.
It is a fact of life that, generally speaking, first and second wives rarely have much common ground.

The presence of the first wife may cast a long shadow over the second, and the second wife may be a constant source of irritation to the first, particularly if she is younger.
Indeed, apart from marrying the same man, the two women often share very little; they may barely be able to tolerate each other.
But Julianne isn’t one to blindly accept stereotypical beliefs.
‘I’ve had women tell me, “You know what? I love his new wife, and I’ll tell you why. It’s because the kids love her, and if they’re OK with her, then so am I,”’ she says.
‘Whatever their differences, people usually have a common goal, and that is to make their children happy and ensure they are well cared for.’
Julianne says the situation in the film intrigued her.
I like that Maggie had this idea of Georgette based on what people had told her, not what she had seen.
‘And Georgette, when she finally meets Maggie, says, “Thank you, you’ve been really great to my kids. Let’s figure out a way of communicating about this.” I see that a lot in modern families.

Julianne has been married twice. She met her first husband, the actor John Gould Rubin, in 1984 and they wed two years later. The couple divorced in 1995. She rarely talks about why they split, but has said that work dominated her 20s and early 30s.
I don’t think I felt happy,’ she said of that time in her life.
I didn’t have the kind of personal life I wanted. I’d spent my 20s trying to get wherever there was, which wasn’t really anywhere. It was just a job, and I really wanted a family.
After studying theatre at Boston University in the early 1980s, Julianne moved to New York.
She was a regular in the soap As the World Turns for nearly three years, winning a Daytime Emmy for her performance, before breaking into the world of film as a scientist in Steven Spielberg’s blockbuster The Lost World: Jurassic Park and an artist in the Coen brothers’ cult comedy The Big Lebowski. By the 1990s, she was one of the most in-demand actresses in Hollywood.
Julianne met her second husband, director Bart Freundlich, on the set of The Myth of Fingerprints in 1996, when she was 35.
Their son Caleb, now 18, was born two years later, followed by their daughter Liv, 14, in 2002, a year before Julianne and Bart married.

In the wake of singer Christina Grimmie’s fatal shooting at a concert on June 10, gun safety advocates are coming out in force, pressing for the need for change in gun law policy.

Julianne Moore — who in October launched an entertainment arm offshoot of the group Everytown for Gun Safety — is among them.

On June 11, the actress retweeted an impassioned post about Christina from NBC that read, “We are heartbroken. @TheRealGrimmie is a loved member of our family. Our thoughts are with her and her family.

She also urged “Voice” coaches Blake Shelton and Adam Levine, both of whom shared their grief over Christina’s senseless death on social media, to join her in the fight to end gun violence.

@blakeshelton @adamlevine pls consider joining @Everytown @MomsDemand we could use your voices #EndGunViolence,” Julianne wrote, tagging Everytown For Gun Safety and another organization, Moms Demand Action for Gun Safety in America.

Later, the “Still Alice” star retweeted a post from Sharon Watts, the founder of Moms Demand: “Don’t bother tweeting me ‘Too soon to talk gun laws,” Sharon tweeted, “for 91 fatally shot daily in US, it’s too late. #RIPChristina.

Earlier this year, Julianne wrote an essay in Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner’s Lenny letter about how and why she became involved in gun safety advocacy work.

Recalling the experience of having to confirm to her then 10-year-old daughter that 20 children and six adults had been murdered at the hands of a shooter in Newtown, Connecticut, Julianne noted that the gun violence rate is 25 times higher in the U.S. than in other developed countries.

I don’t ever want to have to explain another Newtown to my kids,” she wrote, “and neither should you.

Grimmie, 22, was killed by a man she did not know while signing autographs at her merch table at a concert in Orlando, Florida. Police later learned the assailant had traveled to her show intentionally from another city and was carrying multiple weapons. He turned the gun on himself after he killed Christina.

A hugely popular singer on YouTube, Christina finished third on “The Voice” in 2014 with coaching help from Adam Levine.

According to Variety, Melissa McCarthy will star in an upcoming dark comedy about forger Lee Israel, titled Can You Ever Forgive Me? Based on her memoir of same name, the story follows Israel, who in the ‘70s and ‘80s made her living writing profiles of famous people like Katharine Hepburn and Tallulah Bankhead. Later, though, when she was struggling to get published, Israel began selling forgeries of letters from deceased writers and actors. Then, after arousing suspicion, Israel simply stole actual letters from library archives and sold those instead. Israel pled guilty to conspiracy to transport stolen property in 1993 and received a sentence of six months under house arrest, hopefully along with a genial wink from the judge because this obviously was one of those fun crime sprees destined to be turned into a light biopic.

McCarthy is replacing Julianne Moore, who apparently left the project because of creative differences with its writer, Nicole Holofcener (Enough Said, Please Give). At that point, Holofcener was still slated to direct, but now those reins have passed to The Diary Of A Teenage Girl director Marielle Heller. The A.V. Club praised Diary for being “refreshingly nonjudgmental,” a quality that will probably be useful in telling the story of a person whose defining attribute is her dishonesty.
