    Johnny Depp Says He 'Tortured' Leonardo DiCaprio On 'Gilbert Grape' Se... - Huffington Post NEW!

        Oh, how times have changed. Long before Johnny Depp had cornered Hollywood's eccentric-character market and Leonardo DiCaprio was an A-list celeb just waiting for an Oscar win, the two starred in the 1993 Lasse Hallstrom film "What's Eating Gilbert Grape."  At the 31st annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival on Thursday, Depp opened up about working with a 19-year-old DiCaprio.  "I respect Leo a lot. He worked really hard on that film, researching and showing up ready to work -- and I tortured him. I really did," he said, adding that he used to tease his young co-star.   "He was always talking about these video games. 'No, I will not give you a drag from my cigarette while you hide from your mother again, Leo,' [I would say]," he added, according to Variety.  Who could have known that "Titanic" would debut just four years later, and that DiCaprio would presumably push aside his video games in favor of outings with the so-called "Pussy Posse"? Hollywood, man. Also on HuffPost: -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    Beyoncé Slays In Surprise New Music Video, 'Formation' - Huffington Post NEW!

        As if you need more proof Beyoncé runs the world ... Bey surprised everyone on Saturday by releasing a music video via Tidal for a new song called "Formation." The singer's new vid delivers a powerful message against discrimination, and also it's Beyoncé, so it's flawless. "Formation" debuts one day before Beyoncé is set to perform at the Super Bowl 50 halftime show with Coldplay and Bruno Mars. Though we don't know for sure if the singer will break out the song at the game, she was supposedly spotted singing it in rehearsals. "Formation" is available as a free download on Tidal.

    And Now, The First Picture From The 'Gilmore Girls' Revival - Huffington Post NEW!

        Da, da, da, da, da, da: the first photo from the "Gilmore Girls" revival is HERE.  On Saturday, Yanic Truesdale, aka the much-loved Michel from "Gilmore Girls", posted a photo on Twitter of himself and Lauren Graham on set at Lorelai's Inn. WEEE! First day back at the Inn with my old boss. Fun times! #GilmoreGirlsRevival #WarnerBros pic.twitter.com/sxprUKdLyk— Yanic Truesdale (@YanicTruesdale) February 6, 2016 The photo is bringing us back to the ole boot cut jeans flip phone era, but the fact that Melissa McCarthy is likely not appearing as Sookie in the revival does make the particular location a little bittersweet. Who will fancily chop stuff in the kitchen while Lorelai freaks out now?? In an interview with TV Line last week, Lauren Graham opened up about first returning to set.  "Alexis [Bledel] and I walked onto the set together and -- I feel super emotional about a lot of it and I’m afraid I’m going to start crying at every turn -- but walking onto that set really felt like something," she said. "It felt like a lot of time had passed and it felt like we were just there. It felt amazing." The revival, reportedly called "Gilmore Girls: Seasons" will be four, 90-minute episodes featuring Graham, Bledel, Truesdale, Scott Patterson, Kelly Bishop, Sean Gunn and Keiko Agena.  Also on HuffPost:      -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    The NAACP Image Awards Show The Oscars What It's Missing - Huffington Post 1 hour ago

        The 47th NAACP Image Awards boasted an all-star list of winners and brought out the best of black excellence Friday night.  It was a big evening for ABC's "Black-ish," which dominated with 11 nominations and took home the award for outstanding comedy series, while the show's leading stars Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson were named outstanding actress and actor. Anderson, who hosted the award show, certainly didn't miss the opportunity to take a jab at the Oscars for their lack of diversity and highlight the bevy of beautiful black stars in the room. "Look at all of these beautiful shades of people in the audience," Anderson said during a more serious moment following his comedic opening monologue, which addressed the same issue. "Hollywood needs to know that this is what diversity is supposed to look like." The night was a major moment for men like Michael B. Jordan, who took home the award for entertainer of the year and outstanding actor in a motion picture for his role in "Creed."  "I used to sneak into the Image Awards, and now I'm standing here as the entertainer of the year, which is mind-blowing," he said at the show. Meanwhile, Fox's hit show "Empire" won big for outstanding drama series. The show's stars Terrence Howard and Taraji P. Henson were awarded outstanding actor and actress -- and Henson also worked in powerful words during their acceptance speech.  "We don't need to ask for acceptance from anyone," she said. "We are enough." Other big wins for the night went to the stars of "Straight Outta Compton," which took out the outstanding motion picture prize, while actress Sanaa Lathan won best actress in a motion picture for her role in "The Perfect Guy." As for non-acting categories, singer John Legend was honored with the prestigious NAACP President's Award for his commitment to career and public service. During his speech, Legend praised young activists who carry on a similar mission.  "Despite the daunting problems, I am hopeful that our generation will demand and achieve radical change in our lifetime," he said.  The NAACP Chairman's Award also recognized other individuals who are also committed to public service and, for the first time ever, the award was given to eight recipients. Among those awarded with the distinguished honor were the activist group Concerned Student Collective 1950 at the University of Missouri and actor Jussie Smollett. The winners made a powerful statement as they took to the stage to accept the award with their fists raised.    Other notable moments came from stars like Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith, who both openly boycotted the Oscars, and attended Friday's award ceremony in support of the show. Other stars included Kerry Washington, Shonda Rhimes, Gabrielle Union and Teyonah Parris.

    Nancy Schafer: From Festival Great to Producing Legend - Huffington Post 1 hour ago

        Sundance, in all of its glory, can be a surreal experience for any filmmaker, but having the opportunity to actually immerse yourself in the wisdom of a legend is an altogether different triumph. This was indeed my experience this past weekend when producer and film festival veteran, Nancy Schafer, graced the Femde Sundance House for a one-hour roundtable discussion featuring Femde founder, Liz Hausle, and fellow producer and entertainment executive, Beth Hubbard. In the words of New York Times writer Michael Kane, "Nancy Schafer doesn't go to the movies. The movies come to her." For the past two decades, Schafer has amassed a resume that would make any seemingly accomplished woman quiver with insecurities in comparison. After developing the film festival division of South By SouthWest/SXSW at the ripe age of 23, the young powerhouse moved on to the creation of the Tribeca Film Festival alongside industry groundbreakers, Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal. Femde founder, Liz Hausle; writer, Myiea Coy; Nancy Schafer; and producer, Beth Hubbard | writer's own image After serving an auspicious 12 year tenure as Executive Director of the Tribeca Film Festival, Schafer has transitioned with keen skill sets in tow to becoming one of today's most sought after film producers. During our candid roundtable, we discussed her exceptional yet niche-driven career trajectory, transitioning from Executive Director of Tribeca to running her own production company, and, yes, even how to avoid producing a crap-show. No one knows what producing is. With producing, it's being the boss, raising the money, keeping the schedule, making sure the creative vision is coming across. You need to be the boss, producers are the unsung heroes. When asked about the key positioning of woman in film today Nancy stated "Its essential women mentor other women. If there are more of us brought to the table then there will indeed be more women at the table." With a thriller set for release and several documentaries in production, Schafer stands as an icon in the film industry, yet her star still continues to rise. From festival great to producing legend, Nancy Schafer is a true example of what it means to create your own destiny. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

        You’ve heard about it. You’ve read about it. You may have even Tweeted about it. But it looks as if Twitter’s non-chronological “algorithmic” timeline is almost here.According to a BuzzFeed report published Friday, the company plans to unveil its algorithmic timeline “as soon as next week.” An algorithmic timeline, unlike the current chronological timeline that’s been a mainstay of Twitter from the beginning, would primarily show tweets on topics that Twitter thinks you'd want to see. If this sounds familiar, it’s because it’s similar to the approach Facebook takes with its News Feed, which shows posts from friends based on an algorithm that tries to determine if you’d be interested in the contents of that post. To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
