Inside Judge Judy’s
FABULOUS& FRUGAL LIFE HER QUICK WIT AND STRONG VALUES HAVE MADE HER TV’S RICHEST STAR, BUT JUDY HASN'T LET FAME AND FORTUNE CHANGE HER By LOUISE A. BARILE
abriele’s Italian Steakhouse has an extensive wine list, but when Judy Sheindlin comes in, she knows what she wants: Grey Goose vodka and club soda with a splash of cranberry. The petite star of TV’s Judge Judy and her husband, Jerry Sheindlin, also a former judge, almost always sit in the same booth at the far end of the main dining room and Judy usually orders fish. “She likes to be low-key, but she is nice to everybody and is always happy to pose for pictures with fans,” says an insider at the eatery near Judy’s home in Greenwich, Conn. And when the bill comes to their table, Judy lets Jerry pick up the check. Not that she needs him to! The justice, 73, who recently extended her contract for her no-nonsense courtroom show, Judge Judy, through 2020, is reportedly worth a whopping $300 million. The sharp-tongued star became the highest-paid person on television with her famous lines like “If I could fine you for stupid, I would fine you for stupid” and “Don’t look at the heavens. God is not going to help you with this case.” But insiders tell Closer that, despite her mas-
sive wealth, Judy lives by the same traditional, modest values that she preaches in her TV courtroom. She buys dime store cosmetics, drives a nondescript SUV and, above all else, relishes the time she spends with her five children and 13 grandchildren.
OLDER AND WISER Unlike some of today’s younger stars who love to flash their cash, Judy prefers not to flaunt her fame and fortune. Those who know her point to the lessons she learned during her comfortable but down-to-earth upbringing in Brooklyn, N.Y. The daughter of a dentist, Judy was always taught to value hard work, education, common sense and a sense of humor. “I had very practical, won derful parents who had a good mo al compass and a work ethic,” sa Judy. A friend agrees: “Judy has ways had her feet planted firmly the ground.” She was already a successful fam ily court judge when her reputation as a fair but tough justice, who could sling better zingers than a borscht belt comic, brought her to the attention of TV producers in 1993. “You know, that was a giant leap of faith for everybody, in-
cluding me,” she admits of taking the plunge into daytime television. But when Judge Judy premiered in September 1996, it became the most popular courtroom reality show — which, nearly 20 years later, is still true. Hersuccesscame as a delightful surprise to Judy, who was 53 and already set in her ways when the show premiered. And while her finances flourished, Judy remained who she was at heart: a smart, sensible, unpretentious woman — so practical that in the early seasons of her show, she still colored her own hair with a drugstore dye! “When it comes to everyday things, Judyhatestooverpay,” says the friend.

MICHAEL DOUGLAS & CATHERINE ZETA-JONES
A SERIES OF SETBACKS ALMOST TORE THEM APART, BUT NOW THE LONGTIME COUPLE ARE HAPPIER THAN EVER
hey were as breathtaking a sight as the stunning Portofino harbor before them. On a warm summer evening in late June, Catherine Zeta-Jones and her husband of 15 years, Michael Douglas, brought a little HollywoodglamourtothesleepyItalianfishingvillage as they enjoyed a cozy dinner together. Sitting side by side, “They seemed very much in love,” an eyewitnesstellsCloser. Catherine and Michael’s lovey-dovey attitude during this ultraromantic getaway is a sign of how far they’ve come. After a series of challenges — including Michael’s cancer battle and Catherine’s struggles with mental illness — they briefly split in 2013. But they were “miserable being apart,” says a friend, and have since been dedicated to making their marriage work. “You have to give it your best shot and not give up when the first problem arises,” says Catherine. “Because there will be many more down the road.
THEIR PATH TO HAPPINESS There’s no doubt Catherine, 46, and Michael, 71, have endured their fair share of problems. In 2010, the Oscar-winning actor was diagnosed with Stage IV oral cancer. “There was really the serious question of whether he would survive it,” says an insider. A year later, Catherine learned she had Bipolar II dis-

FIXED THEIR MARRIAGE order, a condition that spun out of control during Michael’s cancer battle. Also during this time, their son, Dylan, 15, was diagnosed with dyslexia and Michael’s son Cameron, 37, (from his previous marriage to Diandra Douglas) was jailed for drug trafficking. “It was just a perfect storm of family strife,” says the friend. “There aren’t many couples who could come out on the other side of it and keep the marriage together.” If anything, Catherine and Michael’s sixmonth separation helped heal them. “It only made their family unit stronger,” says a friend. “They recognized that the split was not only affecting their children [Dylan and Carys, 13] but other loved ones.” In fact, Michael’s dad, Kirk, “worked on both of them separately while they were apart,” says the friend. “He absolutely adores Catherine and knows h blessed they are to have each other.” Since their reconciliation, a lot has changed Catherine and Michael. “They deal with iss head-on and talk things through,” says th pal. “ Michael’s also learned to be more attentive. He takes Catherine out shopping or to dinner every week.” And since he’s been cancer-free for five years, “Catherine’s in muchbettercontrolofheremotions.” And the couple have a new perspective They snapped this shot on life. “We’re both mellower and wiser,” in Barcelona, Spain, on says Catherine. “We count our blessings.” June 28, after visiting — Deborah Skolnik Portofino and St. Tropez, France (above).

1956 TO TELL THE TRUTH Betty made her debut as a panelist (alongside Tom Poston, Joyce Davidson and Don Ameche) on the CBS hit To Tell the Truth shortly after her Emmy-nominated run on Life With Elizabeth. “She’s a great player,” says game show agent Fred Westbrook. “She’s very bright and can adapt to any format quickly.”
She’s come full circle!
HER GAME AFTER 60 YEARS OF QUIZZES AND BUZZ
“Betty is iconic,” raves Westbrook of the 94-year-old star (with NBA alum Jalen Rose), who’s a regular on ABC’s summer revival of the classic show. “She has a huge fan base and is still quick and funny.”

early 40 years after Elvis Presley ’s shocking death at the age of 42 on Aug. 16, 1977, millions of fans still clamor for answers about what happened on that tragic day at Graceland. Now two upcoming books by members of the King’s inner circle offer fresh insights. In My Brother Elvis, David E. Stanley writes about how he became a member of rock’s first family after his mom, Dee, married Elvis’ dad, Vernon, when David was only 4. Twelve years later, in 1972, he became Elvis’ bodyguard and worked for him until his death. When he last saw Elvis, two days before his demise, David says the rocker told him the next time they met it would be “on a higher plane.” Though the coroner blamed a heart attack, David espouses a controversial theory: that Elvis com24 July 18, 2016 CLOSER
mitted suicide. “On the night Elvis died, he didn’t eat any food, then he ordered an extra bottle of the narcotic Dilaudid,” he says. “Elvis was an expert on drugs, and I believe he knew [that] would put him out his misery. He couldn’t take his life anymor Linda Thompson dated Elvis for four years; they split only months before he died. Her memoir, A Little Thing Called Life, “presents an unsparing look at Elvis’s twin demons — drug abuse and infidelity,” promises the publisher. Still, Elvis’ daughter, Lisa Marie, gave Linda approval to write the book and arranged a private visit to Graceland. As for Elvis’ widow, “Priscilla knew him better than anyone and wants him to be remembered for the wonderful things he added to the world,” says an insider. “She will love Elvis forever and knows that each book will keep his memory alive.” — Bruce Fretts

GINSENG TEA ENERGIZES THE BRAIN

Sipping two cups of this spicy brew a day can increase mental energy by 50 percent in as little as 3 days, according to a Korean study. Credit goes to compounds in ginseng that prompt brain cells to soak up 29 percent more oxygen, chasing away fatigue. A brand to try: Prince of Peace Ginseng Tea ($3 for 10 tea bags, walmart.com).
WHITE TEA SHARPENS FOCUS
A glass of iced white tea can help eliminate the “background chatter” in the mind that makes it hard to concentrate, report scientists in the journal Clinical Neuropharmacology. That’s because a compound in white tea (L-theanine) revs activity in the area of the brain responsible for maintaining focus. One to try: Lipton Peach Mango White Tea ($4 for 18 tea bags, supermarkets).

KEYS TO SKY-HIGH ENERGY Seemingly healthy summer habits can slow the thyroid — but tiny tweaks revitalize the gland so you feel great!
hh, July: The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and we’re spending more time relaxing with loved ones … so why are we feeling so run-down and tired? For 60 percent of women over 50, the cause may be a sluggish thyroid. “It’s very common for women to experience low-thyroid symptoms like fatigue, low tolerance to heat, constipation, irritability, weight gain or brain fog,” says Richard Shames, M.D., author of Thyroid Mind Power. But most women aren’t properly diagnosed, he notes, since doctors don’t always run the correct tests. And even when they do, not all test results are accurate. (If you suspect you have a slow thyroid, he advises asking for these four tests: Free T4, Free T3, TSH and TPO antibody.) What’s more, many women are really feeling the drain right now since common seasonal activities can have a surprisingly negative effect on the gland. To help you avoid this health trap, Closer asked experts to identify the most common summer thyroid sappers — and the simple strategies that optimize health so you can enjoy the season. 40 July 18, 2016 CLOSER
“Going in the sun for 20 minutes a day is really important because we’re now having a vitamin D deiciency because of all the SPF.” Jennifer Aniston, 47
! SEEK THE SUN — SOMETIMES For decades we’ve been warned to apply sunscreen before stepping into the sun. Why that’s bad advice when it comes to the thyroid: “Thyroid hormone doesn’t function unless there’s a molecule of vitamin D right there with it,” says Dr. Shames. In fact, studies have shown that up to 72 percent of people with thyroid disorders are deficient in D — and the best way to get D is to lounge in the sun. The body makes more than 10,000 IU of D with minimal exposure to UV light, and that dose is more than enough to ensure thyroid health, Plus, notes Sara Gottfried, M.D., author of The Hormone Reset Diet, “Once you have enough vitamin D, your body stops production. That doesn’t happen when you get it from a pill.” She suggests full exposure to the midday sun for 15 minutes, then applying a broad-spectrum SPF 30. Need more proof of the sun’s powers? Just look to Jennifer Aniston. She swears by this sunning strategy — and she has vibrant energy and glowing skin to show for it!
TRY A WATER SWAP With the temperature rising this week, our water consumption follows. But the more water we drink, the more fluoride we ingest since the chemical is added to 70 percent of the U.S. water supply. The
problem: Research suggests that fluoride stops the body from absorbing and using iodine — a mineral that’s crucial for thyroid function. “Your body simply can’t produce thyroid hormones without iodine,” says Dr. Gottfried. “It’s vital.” As fluoride levels in the body rise, iodine stores drop and the thyroid slows. To avoid the thyroid-sapping effects of fluoride, Dr. Shames advises looking for the words de-ionized, purified or distilled on the label of bottled water — these products contain just trace amounts of natural fluoride.
ENJOY THIS SEAFOOD Fresh fish is one of summer’s healthiest staples, but some of our favorites, including tuna and swordfish, are high in mercury. “Mercury is a heavy metal that accumulates in the thyroid, interfering with minerals key to thyroid hormone production,” notes Dr. Gottfried. “Mercury can also trigger an autoimmune response, leading directly to a hypothyroid condition.” But instead of nixing seafood, she advises keeping consumption to two or three servings a week (that’s about 12 oz. total) and opting for low-mercury varieties like salmon, scallops and shrimp. These picks are rich in iodine as well as selenium, another mineral that’s essential to peak thyroid performance.

News You Can Use TASTY RX FOR FATTY LIVER Ginger essential oil can help reverse fatty liver and the weight gain it triggers, say scientists in Taiwan. When the oil was added to the diets of mice with fatty liver, the mice had a 49 percent drop in fat accumulation. How? Ginger’s antioxidants reduce the inflammation that leads to liver fat storage. Experts advise spiking dishes with an oil safe for consumption (like Ginger Vitality, $17, youngliving.com). They add that fresh ginger also boasts the healing antioxidants.
MUST-READ NEWS ON HEARTBURN MEDS Taking proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) significantly alters the balance of bacteria in the GI tract, leading to an increase in dangerous bacterial strains like streptococcus, say scientists in the journal Gut. These bacteria can cause diarrhea and abdominal pain, plus increase susceptibility to serious infections, say the authors. Experts advise asking a doctor about PPI alternatives.

Massaging around your eyes and applying pressure to the bony area just below the brows stimulates the flowofoxygen-richblood to the brain’s alertness center for a fast energy boost.
To rev energy by at least 25 percent, spend a few minutes listening to chirping birds. Yale scientists say the sound prods the brain to increase the production of energizing brain waves.
Spraying the back and sides of your neck with cold water lowers body temperature and raises the output of brain chemicals that help you feel more energized in 2 minutes.
Edema of the legs is common in summer since heat hinders the body’s ability to flush fluid. But a study in the journal Nutrition Research finds that taking 100 mg of Siberian ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus) cuts symptoms by up to 40 percent in 4 hours. Anti-inflammatory compounds in ginseng activate an enzyme that boosts circulation to keep fluids from pooling. One to try: Nature’s Way Siberian Eleuthero ($9, iherb.com).

BRIGHTEN THE DAY WHAT’S NEW Top floral designers are arranging bright arrays of blooms in simple pitchers to evoke a casually chic from-the-garden feel. “It’s easy to combine a no-fuss bouquet like this since seasonal garden stems naturally complement one another,” says floral expert Sharon McGukin. “The varied shapes combine for a lush textural effect while the sunny yellow centers unify the vivid mix. It’s perfect for a patio party!”
GET THE LOOK Start by filling a 6" to 8" kitchen pitcher halfway with water. Snip about a dozen each of seasonal stems like English daisies (bellis), violet and orange wallflowers (erysimum) and white spirea to 10 inches. Insert flowers in clusters to create a soft mounded effect, then pull out every other blossom (about an inch) to loosen up the shape for an overall relaxed look. To finish, fill in gaps with spirea sprigs.
Flowers are in their weakest, most dehydrated state during peak sunlight hours, so when you’re snipping from your garden, florists advise doing it in the early morning or at dusk. This ensures the perkiest — and longest lasting — blooms. Also smart: Bring a water-filled bucket to the yard and plunge stems in water as soon as you snip. Then recut stems under running water before arranging your bouquet.

‘I’ve Been Very Blessed!’ MAIN: GETTY; INSETS, FROM LEFT: EVERETT; MPTV
TV’s Gomer Pyle talks marriage, turning 85 and his famous friends
ome of the most memorable catchphrases in television history — “Shazam!” “Surprise, surprise, surprise!” and, of course, “Go-ol-ly!” — were immortalized by one of America’s most beloved entertainers, Jim Nabors. The lanky Alabama native has endeared himself to audiences since his 1962 acting debut on The Andy Griffith Show, its spin-off Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C. and — with his surprisingly strong baritone — countless concerts,
records and variety shows. Now retired from acting, Jim, 86, lives a quiet life in Hawaii with his partner of 42 years (whom he married three years ago), Stan Cadwallader. “This really is paradise,” Jim tells Closer. “Our farm is amazing.” And while he doesn’t visit the mainland often these days, he does still keep in touch with his Hollywood pals like Carol Burnett and Debbie Reynolds. Says Jim: “I’m very happy with my life. It’s great!” — Gregg Goldstein
Don Knotts, Andy Griffith and Jim on The Andy Griffith Show in 1964 CLOSERWEEKLY.COM 49
HEART toheart Take us back to the beginning. What led you to leave Alabama and go west? I had severe asthma as a kid. They didn’t have any cure and told me if I ever got out of the South, I’d probably get away from it. I’ll never forget driving my sister and a couple friends to California the day after graduation. We were in west Texas when I pulled over and jumped out crying and said, “I had the first clear breath I’ve ever taken.” It was one of the most dramatic things that’s ever happened to me.
Incredible. So it wasn’t to pursue fame? Show business was not my life — I had a degree in business. Myfirstjobwasasatypist attheU.N.,andthefirstcelebrityIevermet wasEleanorRoosevelt.Suchalovelylady.
So how’d you end up on a smash hit like The Andy Griffith Show? I [got a job in California as] a film editor at NBC, but I used to work in a little nightclub in Santa Monica for fun, just to sing and carry on. Andy, his wife and a friend of theirs from my hometown came. I did my little silliness and Andy said that if a part ever came up on his show, he would call me. Two weeks later, he did call and said, “Would you like to read?” and I said, “Well, yeah. I guess so. I don’t know.” It was Gomer, but I did it as the character I was doing in the nightclub.
QUIET PRIDE What is Jim most
proud of? “That I had nothing to it.” But Andy called a job!” he tells Closer. everybody and said, “Now, y’all “I’m serious. I loved be nice to him and help in any performing, and it’s way you can.” Aunt Bee [actress really gratifying to do Frances Bavier] was a big help. She something you love.” said, “You don’t have to do all that physical stuff you do in nightclubs,” so I said, “Thank you, Ma’am.” I thought, This is all there is to it? It was so wonderful and warm, and I really loved it.
You got your own show, Gomer Pyle, two years later… When you’re the lead and a series has your name on it…. It was too much pressure.
Is it true you appeared on every season premiere of The Carol Burnett Show because you were her good luck charm? Yes, that’s true. Our relationship is not show business — it’s totally personal. She’s like a sister to me, and I adore her, and she’s always considered me her brother. I’m the godfather of her daughter, Jody. They [just] surprised me and came over for my birthday.
Who else from your Hollywood days have you talked to lately? Gosh darn it, I just talked to Debbie Reynolds the other day.
How’s she doing? Amazing! I told the guys, “I have to level with you — I’ve never acted,” and they said, “Well, there’s
A LIFE FULL OF SURPRISE THE GOOD FRIEND Born and raised in tiny Sylacauga, Ala. Jim was voted “friendliest” by his Sylacauga High classmates in 1947. “I love my home in Alabama, and [used to go back] there once a year,” he reveals to Closer.

THE GRUNT The sitcom Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.’s impact lasted far beyond its 1964–’69 run: “Last year the Marine Corps band came and played to surprise me for my 85th birthday!”
THE TRIPLE THREAT On his 1969–’71 variety show, The Jim Nabors Hour (with Ronnie Schell, Karen Morrow and Frank Sutton), he enjoyed the “chance to sing, which I couldn’t do very much when I was Gomer.”
“I just love people, and I love getting out among them!”

Are you still singing?
THE BIRD OF A FEATHER Even 1983’s NASCAR bomb Stroker Ace couldn’t hurt Jim’s bond with Burt Reynolds and Loni Anderson. At their 1988 wedding, Burt said, “Jim sang The Lord’s Prayer and ‘Our Love Is Here to Stay.’”
Yeah, I can still sing. It’s the old body that’s collapsed around me. [Laughs] I worked a full schedule until I was 75 and thought, This is the time to give it up. I was at The Flamingo [in Las Vegas] on New Year’s Eve — that’s the worst time of the year to play anywhere. The audience doesn’t even know you’re there. They’re all drunk!
How did you meet your husband, Stan? Stan worked for me. I was always gone, and he was a fireman and had time off, so I was redoing my home here and put him in charge. It was a wonderful friendship, and now it’s been 42 years. It’s a great relationship. If you can have one that lasts that long, you’re really blessed.
Did marriage make things stronger? No, no, no. We were advised to do that because it has everything to do with your estate and everything you’ve worked for.
Any advice on making a relationship last? You just have to hang in there and one day you think, Hey! I’m happy! I’ve got my best friend. — Reporting by Katie Bruno
THE LADIES’ MAN Pals Phyllis Diller, Carol Burnett, Florence Henderson, Ruth Buzzi and Loni celebrated his 1991 star on the Walk of Fame. Jim’s reaction? “Go-ol-ly!”
THE CROONER Jim sang “Back Home Again in Indiana” at nearly every Indy 500 from 1972 to 2014. “It’s just a beautiful song,” he’s said. “It’d make anyone nostalgic, no matter where they were raised.” CLOSERWEEKLY.COM 51

CATCHING UP WITH THE CAST WILLIAM SHATNER AND CREW CELEBRATE THE TV SERIES THAT CHANGED THEIR LIVES FOREVER
ifty years after boldly starring as Lt. Uhura in the beloved TV series Star Trek, Nichelle Nichols still raves about being a part of the iconic show. “It’s the greatest thing that could’ve happened to anyone,” she told Closer at the 42nd Annual Saturn Awards in Burbank, Calif., on June 22. Elegant in black, Nichelle, 83, received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films event. Her award is only the latest recognition for Star Trek, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. Created by Gene Roddenberry, the show premiered on NBC on Sept. 8, 1966. And despite airing for just three seasons, its legacy has lasted a half-century, with five spin-off TV series and 12 movies. “It feels unbelievable,” William Shatner, 85, who played
Capt. James T. Kirk, tells Closer. “That it’s lasted 50 years is strange and wonderful.” The show established the careers of its original players, and even now, “We all have this bond,” says George Takei, who played Sulu. While many members of the original cast have passed away (Leonard Nimoy, who played Spock, died last year), the four remaining actors, including Walter Koenig, 79 (Chekov), plan to attend the annual — and sold-out — Star TrekconventioninLasVegasfromAug.3to7. The convention is just one of many events celebrating the series’ remarkable legacy. “There is a 50th anniversary celebration going on some place!” George, who appeared at an event in Germany and plans to go to the British 50th in October, reveals to Closer. Adds William: “Nothing’s ever happened like Star Trek before in the history of entertainment, and I’m very proud to be a part of it.” —Lisa Chambers

“It’s very luxurious in terms of space,” says Juju. “It feels like a suburban home in the middle of the city.”
uju Chang didn’t rush into fixing up the stunning NYC duplex she and her husband of 20 years, PBS network CEO Neal Shapiro, bought ars ago. “It was in bad need novation, but we wanted to feel for how we were going se the space first,” says the ghtline co-anchor. “We wanted a place that felt like reflection of us.” Eventually, before ovating, the couple decided design scheme, inspired eal’s vintage Humphrey rt posters. Juju, 50, tells Closer: “Because this is a traditional art deco building, we also wanted to capture that atmosphere — but modernize it, and do it a bit differently.” One of the most significant changes they made to the fivebedroom, four-and-a-half-bath home was the “big room” they created after tearing down a wall between the living and dining rooms. “I wanted my boys [Jared, 15, Travis, 12, and Mason, 8] to feel like this is as much their room as the grownups’,” she says. So along with souvenirs from Juju’s travels around the world — including miniature statues of Congolese policemen she picked up in Africa — you’ll find games that their sons play. Says Juju, “It’s a space to be enjoyed with the kids.” Other parts of the home vividly capture the sports “obsession” her sons share. A kitchen wall is filled with “old Yankee Stadium signs that were being thrown away. One says, ‘Limit Four Beers,’ which my son thinks is hysterical because

he s limited to zero beers, Juju says with a laugh. Another wall is covered with photos of a special white-water rafting excursion taken on Juju’s recent 50th birthday. “I cajoled all 22 members of my immediate family to come,” she admits. “I said, ‘We’re going into the deepest wilderness in Idaho, down the Salmon River. It was an unbelievable trip, and the photos immediately evoke that feeling oftogetherness.” The office, with its “his-and-her partner desk” on a cool zebra-patterned rug, also elicits a feeling of intimacy. On the shelves you’ll find Neal’s antique radio collection. “I started it by giving him one for his 40th birthday,” says Juju. “And the next thing you know, we’re looking at flea markets and buying another radio. Some of them we picked up for nothing, but for us they have meaning.” Just outside the office is a high shelf that showcases the couple’s Emmy Awards. “Between 60 July 18, 2016 CLOSER

Juju and Neal, 58, worked with designer Kimberly Hall to pull it all together. “Kimberly’s brilliant,” gushes Juju. “She was inspired by a Sonia Delaunay painting and said, ‘Let’s draw on these colors.’” Yet it all pales in comparison to the spectacular Central Park view from their large greenery-filled corner terrace. “Anytime we entertain, we open the doors and people are out there,” she says with a bit of pride. “I love looking at the view through other people’s eyes, because it makes you realize how lucky you are.” — Reporting by Ilyssa Panitz

Everything old is new again! Dorothy Lamour’s red Polynesian print lives on in today’s stars
ore than 80 years have passed since Dorothy Lamour first dazzled us on the silver screen, but the actress will always be remembered as the queen of island-chic fashion. After she wowed audiences in a floral sarong in 1936’s The Jungle Princess, the Polynesian print became so in-demand that Dorothy had her own fashion line of bold floral dresses in the 1940s. Now we’re thrilled that the fun print is back — and that it has evolved from casual vacation-style frocks to elegant red carpet attire. “These upbeat prints recall Old Hollywood glamour and bring an air of freshness to any look,” says Yuchin Mao, head of design at justfab.com. She adds that the patterns (from tropical leaves to jungle hibiscus) are fabulously flattering. “Floral prints are inherently vibrant,” she explains. “Their colors impart a youthful vibe and help brighten up skin.” Dorothy would definitely approve!

WHAT’S HER SECRET? Swoosie Kurtz
False Lashes Open the Eyes Mascara is considered the go-to for making eyes pop — but when lashes are sparse, that black coating can accentuate the problem rather than hiding it. Veteran stage and screen star Swoosie fell into that trap last year, and it left her looking tired. Today she’s bright-eyed, likely thanks to falsies, says makeup artist Ramy Gafni, who’s worked with Tina Fey. His tip for a natural look: Trim strips so they’re the length of your lash line, then cut into thirds. Apply glue to the strips; wait 30 seconds before placing one section on the lash line at the inner corner, then connect the rest of the pieces moving outward.

Why she looks so much younger this year than last: She ditched the slicked-back ’do that was putting a spotlight on incoming grays. “Switching to a hairdo with softer waves helps make silver strands at the hairline less noticeable,” says celebrity hairstylist Richard Mannah, artistic director for label.m hair care. And for extra insurance, a root touch-up spray (like AGEbeautiful Root Touch-Up Temporary Haircolor, $10, sallybeauty.com) adds a slight tint to grays so they blend seamlessly with the rest of hair.

Martha Stewart Add “aging in reverse” to the long list of things Martha excels at. The domestic diva turned back the clock when her skin went from splotchy and shiny to totally radiant. New York City dermatologist Susan Bard, M.D., suspects a toner switch may be to thank. She points out that harsh toners (with ingredients like alcohol and citric acid) can sap skin its natural moisture and lead to excess oil productio creating a slick look.

I couldn’t get any jobs. ing to paint and write.” His tough-guy role got iced — and gave him the idea for a guy named Balboa. “My entire life I’d been considered this thought, How about a thug with a heart of gold?”

MY LIFE IN Pictures AFTER MOVING from NYC hiladelphia before high school, Sylvest e found it difficult to fit in, and he wa . But he refused to back down. “I tho ys pound me into a pulp than I run awa a turning point for me. I knew I couldn’t live with that kind of humiliation.” And while that determination may have become the template for guys named Rocky and Rambo, it also served Sly well as he survived poverty, homelessness, his son Seargeoh’s battle with autism and the 2012 death of his other son, Sage. “Every time I’ve [been down], people had me out for the count,” said Sly, who turned 70 on July 6. “But I always come back.”
1977 YO BOY! Nominated Sly didn’t walk away with an Oscar for acting or writing. But when Rocky won Best Picture, he got onstage and told the audience: “To all the Rockys in the world, I love you!”
1982 A CUT ABOVE “I think First Blood is the best action film I’ve ever done,” said Sly of his first turn as Vietnam vet John Rambo. “He’s America’s waif. He’s gone. There is no direction, no plans, no aspirations. Zero. He’s looking for a cause.”
1985 CLOSE CALL If Rocky IV’s fights looked realistic, there’s a good reason. After Dolph Lundgren (as Russian fighter Ivan Drago) landed a few punches, Sly was “in intensive care for eight days. Without medical attention, [my] heart would’ve continued to swell until it stopped.”
1993 HIGH ANXIETY “I was very scared at first, really scared. I’m not a heights guy,” admitted Sly of shooting Cliffhanger. “[But] after about a month, you start getting silly. You start doing goofy things, like guys do. And before you know it, it’s like, ‘Hey, can you stand on one foot here and catch a football leaning over the edge?’”
2010 IN GOOD FAVOR “[The Expendables] was all done on favors,” revealed Sly of his hit pic, on which he managed to coax pals Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis. “Some guys did it for nothing…meaning me!”
1983 DIFFERING VIEWS “I work totally from an emotional point of view,” said Sly of directing Saturday Night Fever’s sequel, Staying Alive. “I know what feels good and what sounds good.” Yet, critics disagreed. “[They] tore it to pieces.”
2015 PUNCHER’S CHANCE After two years of trying, director Ryan Coogler finally got Sly to reprise Rocky for Creed. “I finally said, ‘You know what? Someone took a chance on me, once.’”
1997 COP AN ATTITUDE “Intelligent people looked at my movies and said, ‘This is athletics, not acting.’” So he gained 40 pounds and joined Robert De Niro for the police pic Cop Land.
2016 FAMILY MAN “Family comes first before [any] job,” shared Sly about life with wife Jennifer Flavin and daughters (from left) Sistine, Scarlet and Sophia. “In the end, that’s all you have: your heart, your morality and your family.”
Things th Now Hilary Duff
On a recent summer day in NYC, actress Hilary Duff kept cool in a cute pair of cutoffs — a style that’s come in and out of fashion since the 1970s when these hot pants were nicknamed “Daisy Dukes” after Catherine Bach’s sexy short shorts–wearing character on The Dukes of Hazzard.
Joe Jonas has revived the “Maverick” flight jacket, first worn by U.S. Army and Navy forces in World War II and popularized by Tom Cruise in Top Gun.
