|Rock for EB!|
Chris Cornell and Sting performed at a Rock for EB show last night, with Brad Pitt also in attendance. What is EB?
An individual with EB lacks a critical protein that binds the layers of skin together. Without this protein, the skin tears apart, blisters and sheers off, leading to severe pain, disfigurement, and wounds that never heal. EB affects the body inside and out. Blisters occur all over the body, as well as in the eyes, mouth, esophagus, and other internal organs. EB causes severe pain, disfigurement, and in too many cases, an early death from an aggressive form of skin cancer. It is estimated that EB affects at least one in every 50,000 births. EB is not specific to any ethnicity or gender. Given that EB affects only 25- 30,000 people in the US, advancing this research relies on the generosity of individuals and corporations.
Brad Pitt surprised everyone when he presented the film Moonlight at the Golden Globes on Sunday night in a rare public appearance.
Pitt, 53, took the stage to a loud applause from the crowd. The actor looked sleek, wearing a classic black tuxedo for the occasion.
“It’s born of the courage of a group of actors willing to strip to their souls and express their humanism inside mistake and misstep and misdeed,” Pitt said during his presentation of the film, which was named Best Film by the National Society of Film Critics on Saturday, according to Variety.
“It is Barry Jenkins profound belief that we all stand at the threshold of change and forgiveness where we only grant acceptance and love to ourselves,” he continued. “Nominated for 6 Golden Globes, this is Moonlight.”
Pitt’s production company, Plan B, partnered with A24 to produce the coming-of-age drama about a gay, African-American boy, and the film has been earning Oscar buzz.

In the 1980s, fashion photographer Mario Testino shot a woman’s haircut for British Vogue. It was one of his first professional assignments and somewhat of a signifier, as he continued to photograph women throughout his career: Princess Diana, Beyoncé, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, and many others.
But Testino flipped this focus in his book SIR, published by Taschen, which showcases 300 photographs of men — his largest published collection to date. The tome explores the evolution of masculinity in the fashion world over the past 30 years, featuring portraits of Brad Pitt, George Clooney, David Bowie, models, and more celebrity men.

At a Gotham Independent Film Awards overshadowed by the election of Donald Trump, Barry Jenkins’ coming-of-age drama “Moonlight” shined brightest.
A celebrated film about a boy growing up gay, black and poor in Miami, “Moonlight,” virtually swept the night, taking best feature, best screenplay, a special jury award for best ensemble and the audience award. The Gothams, which honor independent film, are essentially the kick-off to Hollywood’s long awards season.
Monday night’s ceremony, hosted in Manhattan by Keegan-Michael Key, also served as the first opportunity for the film industry – or at least a sizable chunk of its more East Coast, indie contingent – to formally gather since the election. It gave much of Hollywood (which overwhelmingly backed Hilary Clinton) a chance to commiserate over drinks, try out punchlines and make a rallying cry for art’s political power.
Terrence Malick’s Voyage of Time documentary was decades in the making, a realization of a vision and a goal for the filmmaker — an exploration of the universe and all creation, billed as a look into our planetary past and a search for humanity’s place in the future.
There are two versions of the film, one a 90-minute version which premiered to rave reviews at the Venice Film Festival and a shorter, 45-minute IMAX version narrated by Brad Pitt, described as a more explanatory version. In his review of the 90-minute version, Variety’s Chief Film Critic Owen Gleiberman called it “a mystic love poem to the unfathomable splendor of the natural world.” In the film, Malick expands on the birth-of-the-universe sequence from his own Tree Of Life and shows an array of never-witnessed natural phenomena — celestial and terrestrial, macroscopic and microscopic — in a variety of new ways.
Brad Pitt walked the red carpet of the China press conference of his new romantic spy drama “Allied” at Shanghai Postal Museum.
Directed by Robert Zemeckis, who helmed “Forrest Gump,” the movie will hit cinemas across China on November 30.
It is the first time Pitt promoted his movie in China’s mainland. He shared with media and fans stories behind shooting.
Pitt said that he is very thrilled and excited to have the film’s China premiere tour starting from the city of Shanghai. “The film is very romantic and a little bit tragic,” he said. “I believe you will like it.”
Set in World War II, the film centers on a disguised spy couple who take a mission to kill a German official. But Pitt’s character discovers that his wife played by Marion Cotillard might actually be a double agent also working for the German government.
