Tilda Swinton and Geoffrey Dicker
The earth is in perfect alignment as it’s both #TildaTuesday and actress Tilda Swinton’s birthday today, November 5. We love all things Tilda and I enjoy when people post photos of her online to celebrate #TildaTuesday. Whether she is in full make up or wearing none, she is one of the most exotic and beautiful females on the planet and I can’t get enough of seeing her. Happy birthday Tilda and thanks for being so cool!

Sad news! Actress Marcia Wallace has passed away at the age of 71, according to the internet. Marcia Wallace was receptionist Carol Kester on The Bob Newhart Show and was also the voice of Mrs. Krabappel on The Simpsons. I met Marcia many times over the years and she was always super sweet. I remember the first time I saw her flash her signature smile in person, it really lit up my day. May she rest in peace.

My favorite film at the 51st New York Film Festival was “Her” directed by Spike Jonze. It appears the festival saved the best for last as the film was screened throughout the day on October 12, 2013 – the final day of the NYFF. I attended the press screening in the morning which was attended by the film’s director Spike Jonze. Also joining him for a question and answer session were some of the stars of the film: Joaquin Phoneix, Amy Adams, Rooney Mara and Olivia Wilde.
“Her,” is set in the not so far off in the future Los Angeles and it focuses on the love life of Theodore Twombly (portrayed brilliantly by Joaquin Phoenix). Theodore lives in a world of technology and he falls in love with an operating system (voiced by Scarlett Johansson). As expected in a Spike Jonze film, there are funny, touching and very quirky moments. For music lovers, the film was scored by the ultra-hip Arcade Fire, so you definitely will not want to miss this film.
As you watch this film, you will immediately be sucked into Theodore’s world and you will scarily not find it too far fetched that a person could fall in love with a virtual operating system. I don’t want to spoil the film because I want you to see it when it gets released, but I can assure you, if you liked “Being John Malkovich,” you will also like “Her.” Once the screening was over, I had a few nice photo ops and you can see those after the jump. Thanks to everyone who was nice enough to take photos with me and also for your great performances!

Lily Collins and Geoffrey Dicker
Lily Collins is so beautiful! Fabulousness must run in the family genes as her father is legendary singer Phil Collins. As of now, Lily is not following in her father’s footsteps; however Lily is staying in the entertainment field and is an actress. She was in town to promote her latest film “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,” which promises to be a successful film franchise a’la Twilight. Either way, Lily Collins is going to be a huge star and I hope she continues to stay nice! Thanks again Lily!

Olivia Munn and Geoffrey Dicker
Happy birthday to actress and hot thang Olivia Munn who was born on July 3. It’s also the birthday of Tom Cruise, actress/singer Audra McDonald, as well as the death day of one of my gods, Jim Morrison. Strangely enough, he broke on through on July 3, 1971 and future outlaw Julian Assange was born on the very same day. Coincidence?
