In this wonderful year of Wonder Woman comes a delightful book for children called Superheroes Club. The central message is that a superhero is not what they look like but what they do. A message of caring and sharing, much-needed in this time of division and hatred. A loving gift for a child in your life. #superheroesclub
There are times when we all are one. Every time there is a catastrophe, we focus, often on a single image, and our human need to help and heal emerges. @strongerthefilm and the story of #jeffbauman and his family and girlfriend tells such a story. It LIFTS you UP and makes you realize that we all are STRONGER together. I urge you to go today, on the birth of this film and be transported and made better by it. #strongermovie #strengthdefinesus In Theaters September 22nd!
This is what community looks like. Today in Malibu People came together, sacrificing personal time,suiting up and showing up, some people blood sweat and tears all to help raise money to help children who need our help. @nautica @childrensla In this bifurcated country it is crucial to remember that we CAN come TOGETHER and FOCUS on our most vulnerable citizens....CHILDREN!
I met her Royal Highness, Princess Diana when I was shooting the sequel to A Fish Called Wanda. The truth is I didn't meet her. She was to visit our set deep in the gardens of Pinewood Studios with her children and we waited for her all morning and then when we took a break midday, I raced via golf cart to my dressing room to use the restroom. While I was in there someone came knocking on my door saying that Princess Diana and her children had arrived on set and as I raced back in the golf cart, they were already walking away. The next day I wrote her a note explaining my nature break and how disappointed I was not to tell her, in person, how much I admired her. A hand delivered letter from Kensington Palace, on her stationary, came the next day thanking me for mine and understanding completely the need for nature to take it's course. We exchanged a hope that we would get to meet in the future.
Later that summer I heard about her shocking death. I remember turning off the television knowing what the media was going to do. I picked up a book on meditation which was next to my bed by Joseph Goldstein and Jack Kornfeld. In it it said that at the time of death, people who try to live mindfully, ask themselves only two questions. Did I learn to live wisely? Did I love well?
I thought about her and her life and the choices she made and how brave she was, how she reached out to that young man with AIDS before anyone did, the mine fields, mental health and so much more and how much she loved her children, the image of them running into her outstretched arms after a long trip. It gave me comfort that although her life was short, it was complete.
She was a great role model for me. An example to live by. I honor her this day.
I stand corrected a second time today. Although what @senjohnmccain did I think was heroic and will continue to reverberate throughout our government, it was the constant persistence that this bill was wrong by these two women @senlisamurkowski and @sensusancollins who really kept it from passing. I applaud them and support them both. It's always easier to just hand the success to a man. However dramatic his vote was, their courage and persistence was more so!
When I'm wrong I promptly admit it. I was wrong to judge Senator McCain before he voted. @senjohnmccain gave a patriotic speech about bipartisan support of people over party and then gave a thumbs down to this sham of a health care bill. A true American hero who put his life in the line for this country. More than we can say for Trumo. Thanks mostly to @senlisamurkowski @sensusancollins who lead the GOP charge!
Yes, tonight on @thetauntfest #thetauntfest available to stream in @twitch and on Facebook live, my son, Tom Guest, will make his final appearance on the #couchofcharisma with @thetoddroy. Many moments of game playing and #tomfoolery and of course the head shaving live on the show for his #21. Farewell to the smug and the laughs! Thanks for all of it #jacehall!
I'm breaking my own rule about random self exploitation but since so many are being broken in Washington I felt like I should join that club. Got home from my fantastic work experience on #ThePages, immediately got a summer shorning from @seanjameshair and look what was waiting for me. My own custom, first prototype @fliepaper T-shirt. Stay tuned. Coming to a home store or drive-in near you. The movie soon too. A creative time in this troubling time. Art makes change!
