Phantom Thread , the new film from Paul Thomas Anderson, garnered extra attention when its star, Daniel Day-Lewis, announced that it would feature his final performance.
IMAGE COURTESY OF JAMIE MCCARTHY/GETTY The Versace Mansion in Miami’s South Beach is, in theory, a morbid place to party. Gianni Versace was murdered here, shot on the steps in 1997 by 27-year-old Andrew Cunanan, so it is weirdly dichotomous to see Issa Rae, Insecure star and showrunner, necking back a bubbly mix of gin and champagne at Artsy’s party to celebrate the finalists of Bombay Sapphire’s Artisan Series, a competition for emerging artists. There are parties at the Versace Mansion—now a hotel called Villa Casa Casuarina—all the time

A native New Yorker raised by artist parents in the family’s Tribeca loft, Avery Singer has had a front-row seat to the city’s creative class her entire life.

Even when Kimmel began acting as a teen to help pay the family bills—and ended up a rising Hollywood star after appearing in Stanley Kubrick’s 1999 thriller Eyes Wide Shut — she covered the inside of her trailers in plastic so she could paint.
The writer, director, and star of The Room —the best worst movie ever made—is inscrutable, witchy, and, in his own twisted way, kind of brilliant.

For over 30 years, unrestrained celebrity writer George Wayne has probed into the minds of every megawatt star. Starting out at Interview and then penning a long-running column at Vanity Fair , G.W.—as he’s known to everyone including himself—turned the tried-and-true Q&A into an art form. Notorious for asking the questions that everyone’s thinking but are too afraid to ask, Wayne has collected some of those boisterous conversations in his new book, Anyone Who’s Anyone: The Astonishing Celebrity Interviews, 1987-2017 (Harper Collins)
Some 30 years after emerging out of the Washington D.C.
