THE TOUGH GUY RETURNS TO TV Kiefer Sutherland’s 32-year acting career has certainly been varied (a vampire! a cowboy! Jack Bauer!). Now the actor, 49, is back in the ABC drama Designated Survivor, in which he plays a Cabinet member turned President after a terrorist attack takes out most elected officials. He sat down with People and Entertainment Weekly Editorial Director Jess Cagle to talk about the new show, his unconventional childhood and how he stays on top of his demons.
“It was the greatest summer of my life,” Sutherland says of filming 1987’s The Lost Boys.

“It’s also a family drama,” Sutherland (with TV wife Natascha McElhone) says of Designated Survivor.

After 24, were you surprised to find yourself doing an hour-long drama on TV again? I wasn’t looking for one! When the script came to me, I was just going to give it a cursory read. But when I got to page 25, I realized I was potentially holding the next decade of my life in my hands. The premise is dark. How do you take that and make it hopeful and optimistic? The USA is always at its best when things are at their worst. As a society, we have to find hope. Your father is Donald Sutherland and your mother is actress Shirley Douglas. Your childhood seems so exotic. It was pretty cool. It was not conventional! We moved around a lot, [but] that suited me. The song “Can’t Stay Away” on your new country album Down in a Hole is about alcohol. That’s a revealing statement. One of the things I love to do is go out with my friends and tell stories and have a bunch of drinks. I would be lying if [I said] there weren’t moments where I felt I let it get away from me. . . . [But I] enjoy the times too much, so I’d rather work hard so I could still have some of those times than to simply stop. Sum up your life in one bumper sticker. “Didn’t miss much!”

WHY WE MUST UNIFY
In his new book Writings on the Wall, social activist and NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar shares his thoughts on a U.S. still rife with racism. “Until we get back to making the American dream accessible for everyone, we cannot move forward with a new equality,” he says. His solution? “Dialogue. It’s America’s answer. We’ve lost the ability to talk to each other without being arrogant or impatient.” Though he says conditions have improved since he boycotted the 1968 Olympics to protest inequality, he’s counting on millennials to bring about more change. “They have to get it. They need a road map of what’s possible—and how to get there.” —ROSE MINUTAGLIO

A puppy lives with a host family for a little over a year before going into intensive training. At 20 months, the dog is placed with their partner at no cost to the person who is blind or visually impaired. I’m really grateful for RESTASIS—as someone who has borderline dry eye—because they’ve partnered with Guide Dogs for the Blind. The dogs help guide, but it’s a social entrée, too. Since it’s a free service, anybody who needs it can get it. If you go to their website and take the dry eye test (which is free to take) they’ll donate $1 for each quiz taken, up to $100,000, directly to this great organization.

of The Bachelor unscathed, but instead I had hurt the person I loved the most. I felt helpless.” Reports that the new couple were on the rocks further plagued them. “I was scared because I was facing situations that I didn’t know how to handle,” says Bushnell. “But running away was never an option because I love Ben so much. I want to spend my life with him, and I knew we would ﬁgure it out.” Ultimately the pair moved on (“I don’t have any resentment,” says Bushnell) and focused instead on navigating life as a real couple—even if they did get engaged after just weeks of dating. “There’s been a lot of change,” says Higgins. “And I’m not great with change in general. Sometimes it takes me a minute to process.” To combat those challenges, the pair have attended couples counseling through their church and make sure to fit in date night once a week when they aren’t ﬁlming their new reality show. As for their much-anticipated wedding, Bushnell says she dreams of a winter fete—just not this winter: “We’re not in any rush. Even if everyone else wants us to be!” Says Higgins: “It doesn’t say anything about cold feet. We just want to do this on our own terms.” After all, “there are so many weird elements to life after The Bachelor,” says Bushnell. “And there isn’t a guidebook on how to handle it.” In the end, “I don’t have any regrets,” says Higgins. “Because I found the woman of my dreams.”

Blunt as a passenger who sees choo-choo much.
The Girl on the Train
The tracks take surprising twists in this entertaining mystery starring Emily Blunt THRILLER Permanently stunned by a cruel divorce and further numbed by booze, Rachel (Blunt, whose performance sets a new standard for what could be called Resting Sad Face) spends her days riding the train past her old home. Her ex (Justin Theroux) lives there still, only now he’s started a family with Anna (Rebecca Ferguson). Rachel knows spying on them reopens old wounds, but she has a balm: She fantasizes about the loving, lovely couple (Luke Evans and Haley Bennett) a few doors down. But then Rachel, whose alcohol blackouts make her a dicey witness, spots something amiss at Happy House, and faster than you can say “clickety-clack” she’s at the heart of a deadly mystery. This adaptation of the bestseller doesn’t wrap up as tautly as it should, but the acting is impeccably smooth and nimbly ambiguous: Like Rachel, you’ll be fooled more than once. (Oct. 7, R)

As documentaries go, 13th is rigorously restrained—mostly talking heads and graphics—but that allows its historical argument about a broad pattern of injustice to unfold with red-hot urgency.

Sarah Jessica Parker returns in a sadder-but-wiser show about a couple foundering in midlife COMEDY Jimmy Choos aren’t much use on the steeper, farther slopes of life. This is by way of orienting you to Parker’s smart but thorny Divorce, her ﬁrst series since the iconic (and very different) Sex and the City. Do not expect Mr. Big or gossipy downtown brunches. Frances (Parker) suddenly realizes she’s sick of her 17-year marriage to Robert (Thomas Haden Church, whose air of deep-rooted irritability—as if he wants to shake sand out of his soul—ﬁnds a terriﬁc outlet here). Frances’s motives aren’t clear and they aren’t pure (she’s having a ﬂing). But Parker is an enduringly captivating actress, and this forlorn new role expresses the same longing that animated Sex’s Carrie. To want romantic fulﬁllment may be a delusion—but what else is worth wanting? (HBO, Oct. 9, 10 p.m.)

IF YOU RECEIVED A NONEMERGENCY AUTOMATED TELEPHONE CALL OR TEXT MESSAGE FROM BLACKBOARD OR SENT USING BLACKBOARD EQUIPMENT TO WHICH YOU DID NOT CONSENT OR FOR WHICH YOU HAD PREVIOUSLY WITHDRAWN CONSENT YOU MAY BE ENTITLED TO A CASH PAYMENT FROM A CLASS ACTION SETTLEMENT A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit involving automated voice and text calls involving Blackboard Inc. and Blackboard Connect Inc. (collectively “Blackboard”). The lawsuit, Valladares v. Blackboard Inc. et al., Case No. 2106 CH 06482 (Ill. Cir. Ct. Cook Cnty.), alleges that Blackboard violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”), 47 U.S.C. § 227, by sending automated telephone calls and text messages to persons who had not consented to receive such calls and messages. The proposed settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing by Blackboard. Blackboard strenuously denies that it violated the TCPA or any similar laws and the court has not decided who is right or wrong. Rather, the parties are resolving the dispute by settlement.
Am I a Member of the Settlement Class? You’re a member of the settlement class if, at any time between December 22, 2010 and September 1, 2016, you received a non-emergency automated phone call or a non-emergency text message from Blackboard or sent using Blackboard equipment to which you did not consent or for which you had previously withdrawn consent.
What Can I Get From the Proposed Settlement? The proposed settlement provides for a Settlement Fund totaling $7,500,000. If the Court ﬁnally approves the settlement, each class member who submits a valid, timely claim form will be entitled to an equal payment of up to $60. The exact amount of each class member’s payment is unknown at this time; it may be as much as $60, but it may be less depending on several factors, including how many settlement class members return valid claim forms. Administration expenses, attorneys’ fees and costs, and incentive awards are also paid from the Settlement Fund. To make a claim for a cash payment, you must submit a completed claim form online at www.SchoolCallsTCPASettlement.com or via U.S. mail by November 21, 2016.
What are my Options? If you do not want to be legally bound by the settlement, you must exclude yourself by November 21, 2016. If you do not exclude yourself, you will release any claims you may have, as more fully described in the Settlement Agreement, available at the settlement website. You may object to the settlement by November 21, 2016. The Detailed Notice available on the website explains how to exclude yourself or object. The Court will hold a Hearing on January 4, 2017 to consider whether to approve the settlement and a request by class counsel for attorneys’ fees of up to one-third of the Settlement Fund plus their costs for their work in the case. The court will also consider an incentive award payment in an amount up to $10,000 to the class representative. You may appear at the hearing, either yourself or through an attorney hired by you, but you don’t have to. For more information, call or visit the website below.
Jones’s latest solo album hews to her original strengths.
Issa Rae and costar Yvonne Orji.
COMEDY In a series
developed from her YouTube hit The Mis-Adventures of Awkward Black Girl, Issa Rae negotiates bumps in her job (she’s not crazy about being the go-to “minority” voice at a nonproﬁt outreach group) and love life (she dodges her boyfriend by saying her phone was on airplane mode). She’s very funny, a constantly shifting mix of fecklessness and insight. As her friend, a lawyer described as “the Will Smith of corporate,” Yvonne Orji is just as delightfully contradictory.

Norah Jones, Day Breaks
Sounding like her old self again JAZZ In the 14 years since Jones released her careerdeﬁning Come Away with Me, she’s strayed from her original and distinctive sound—part bluesy country, part jazz-pop—to toy with folksy alt rock and indie pop. On Day Breaks, though, the singer returns to her pianobacked roots, crooning jazzy originals (notably “Carry On” and “Flipside”) and even covering a classic rock song (Neil Young’s “Don’t Be Denied”). It’s an eclectic triumph. (Oct. 7)
Katy Mixon feels out-classed in Connecticut.
COMEDY Katy Mixon (Mike & Molly) has a voice so
vinegary it’s almost pickled, as well as a sly smile that shifts from bemusement to dislike. In other words, she’s perfect on this sitcom, playing an insecure stay-at-home mom surrounded by—and resenting—the slim, busy, Fitbit-wearing ladies of the affluent suburb where, alas, her husband just rents. Think The Middle, but passive-aggressive. (ABC, Oct. 11, 8:30 p.m.) CLOCKWISE FROM TOP RIGHT: DANNY CLINCH; ERIC MCCANDLESS/ABC; NATHAN JOHNSON; ANNE MARIE FOX/HBO

The Birth of a Nation
Nate Parker’s controversial, compelling epic DRAMA After premiering at Sundance in January, Parker’s movie about American slave Nat Turner’s 1831 uprising was touted—prematurely—as a sure bet for the Oscars. Now, with the terrible controversy over the director-starcowriter’s past, Birth seems more likely to be buried—again, prematurely—with bad publicity. It’s an impressive movie, powerful and disconcerting. The violence is wincingly visceral (you may be reminded of Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ), and Parker’s central performance builds to an eruption of righteous wrath that never quite rules out messianic madness.

The superstars are now battling over their six kids in the wake of their sudden and shocking split
FRANCOIS DURAND/GETTY IMAGES; INSET: CHARLEY GALLAY/GETTY IMAGES
Since Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt on Sept. 19, she and her six children have been trying to weather the maelstrom that has become their lives. Sequestered for the ﬁrst few weeks in a $95,000-a-month five-bedroom L.A.-area home she hastily rented as her marriage came apart, the star is focused on divorce negotiations and working out thorny custody issues with Pitt. Meanwhile, the kids try to make the best of life in isolation. Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox watch movies, play games and splash in the pool, but it hasn’t been easy. “They didn’t leave the rental house for days,” says a close family source. “It was hard for all of them. They are used to more activities and more entertainment so it’s difficult for them to just stay at the house. The younger kids don’t understand what’s going on.” With friends and her brother James Haven at her side, Jolie, 41, is “in agony,” a family member says. “Her family is broken.” Adds another source: “She’s staying strong for her kids. It’s been a traumatic situation.” That the breakup of Hollywood’s most famous family is traumatic may

be the one thing the two stars at its center can agree on. The biggest bombshell: The L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services has launched an investigation following allegations that Pitt, 52, got verbally abusive and physical with Maddox duringa ﬁght on the family’sprivateplane on Sept. 14. Pitt “was drunk, and there was an argument between him and Angelina,” says a source with knowledge of the incident. When Maddox got involved, things “escalated”—but Pitt “did not hit his child,” the source insists, maintaining that Pitt “made contact” with Maddox “in the shoulder area” but didn’t hurt or physically abuse him. An anonymous report to DCFS triggered an investigation, and Pitt is fully cooperating. “He takes the matter very seriously,” says the source. (Another source close to the situation says Jolie didn’t make the call to DCFS herself or ask anyone to make it.) On Sept. 30 Jolie and Pitt agreed to a temporary plan recommended by DCFS: Until Oct. 20 the children will remain with Jolie, while Pitt is getting visitation with a therapist present for the first meeting. Along with family therapy, both Jolie and Pitt will undergo individual counseling, and Pitt will continue voluntary drug and alcohol testing. “Bradloves his children morethan anythingin this world, and they matter more than anything else to him,” says a Pitt source. “He will do whatever it takes to be with them, now and always.” But for now, the negotiations behind the scenes over longer-term custody and a divorce settlement (their fortune is estimated at $400 million) remain fraught. Jolie wants sole physical custody of the kids with visitation for Pitt; he wants to share physical custody. Those backing Pitt have accused Jolie’s team of blowing the plane incident out of proportion: “They have taken the overall smallest kernel of truth—that a fight got out of hand and reached a regrettable peak, and that as a result DCFS is looking into it—and they are manipulating it to best suit their attempts to gain custody,” says the Pitt source. “He has been absolutely devastated and heartbroken by the events of the past several weeks, both in terms of how those events have been wrongfully portrayed and Rough Seas On the set of their 2015 film, By the Sea, Jolie and Pitt “were quite distant and apart all the time,” says a source. “She was permanently stressed and in a bad mood.”
how they have threatened to jeopardize his family’s ability to heal and move forward.” To Jolie, 41, whose 12-year relationship with Pitt had been quietly unraveling since the two got married in 2014, the plane ﬁght was the disturbing last straw. Her concerns were about more than just a drunken outburst, those close to her say. “This wasn’t because he was drinking,” says the source close to the situation. “This was more serious than that. She did what she felt she had to do to protect the safety of the kids.” In her divorce papers Jolie stated their date of separation as Sept. 15, the day after the plane incident.

about a divorce in the past because Angelina has been unhappy,” the source says. “But Brad never thought it would happen like this.”
For years the couple’s big, diverse family united
them in shared joy and purpose—but eventual clashes over parenting played a big role in their split. Jolie and Pitt both took pride in the kids’ unconventional, global upbringing: Homeschooled by tutors who doubled as nannies, the kids learned the language, culture and history of their birth countries along with standard school subjects. “From the start, Brad and Angie agreed
that traveling the world and getting exposed to different cultures are amazing learning tools,” says a family source. The kids also enjoyed activities such as soccer leagues and skateboarding (the couple put in a skate park behind their L.A. house). Says the source: “It might not be the most traditional, but Brad and Angie don’t really do anything in a traditional way.” Still, the two struggled over their diverging parenting styles. “They started ﬁghting because Brad thought Angie was too laid-back,” the source says. “She doesn’t care if the kids do chores.

the source. “She would plead or not make the kids follow through.” Though Pitt was the stricter of the two, several sources say he never got physical with the kids. “He’s the one who is very good at keeping things calm and telling them how they should be behaving,” says a source who spent time with the family for many years. “He would always be the one to kneel down and communicate with them on their level. He would say, ‘Hey, this isn’t how you should be right now. What’s wrong?’ He doesn’t bully or get mean. He will talk to them directly and say, ‘You have to respect each other. You have to be kind.’” Those on the set of their movie By the Sea in late 2014—which Jolie had joked was their “honeymoon”—saw a the family on the brink of fracturing. Jolie and Pitt rented three villas for themselves, the kids and eight nannies, and made separate business trips on weekends. “They hardly spoke when they were together,” says a set source.

That’s when Brad would get frustrated and yell.” Pitt himself said he felt it was his job “to show ’em around, help them ﬁnd what they want to do with their life, put as many things in front of them, and pull them back when they get out of line,” he told The Telegraph last year. “So they know who they are.” Raised in L.A. by her single mom, Marcheline Bertrand (who died in 2007), after her bitter divorce from Jon Voight, Jolie “deﬁnitely never yells” at the children, says

t was Valentine’s Day 2005 when Jana Kramer was attacked by her husband for the first time. Just 20 years old and married for less than a year to Michael Gambino, a charismatic man 17 years her senior, Kramer was terriﬁed as he slammed her 5'4" frame up against a wall at their Studio City, Calif., apartment and wrapped his hands around her neck. “I didn’t know what I had done wrong or why he was suddenly so angry, but I just cried and said I was sorry, because I believed it must be my fault,” says the country star, now 32. “And then I tried even harder to get him to love me.”

But things only got worse. In fact, the handsome boyfriend she wed on a playful whim in Las Vegas in early 2004 developed a routine that led Kramer to sleep in her car some nights or hide in the bushes until he calmed down. Easily angered and frequently jealous, “he’d come home at 3 o’clock in the morning and pick me up out of bed, throw me onto the ground and start yelling and hitting,” says Kramer, who hid bruises with makeup and kept the abuse a secret from family and friends. “Then the next morning he’d be like, ‘Hey, baby,’ as if nothing had happened.” While she called police after he ﬁrst threatened to kill her, the then-aspiring actress didn’t pursue charges. “I was so ashamed,” she says now. Things escalated to a breaking point on Aug. 6, 2005. Incensed that she’d made what was an innocent call to a male costar on her movie Click, Gambino strangled her into unconsciousness and left her bleeding on the gravel outside their home. “I remember praying that night, ‘Please, just take me away. I don’t want to be here anymore,’” says Kramer, who has scars on her shoulder and arm from that night. Gambino was convicted of attempted murder and sentenced to six years in prison. He was released on parole in 2010 and committed suicide two years later. Kramer seemed to put her life back together, ﬁnding success as an actress in 2009 on the CW hit One Tree Hill and then as a country music star. Still, the trauma haunted her. Her 2010 marriage to actor Johnathon Schaech ended within weeks, and in August she separated from former NFL tight end Mike Caussin (with whom she has a 9-month-old daughter, Jolie) after discovering he’d been unfaithful. “I’m so embarrassed and afraid no one will love me because of my past, but I’m ready to put it out there now,” says Kramer, nestled on a couch in the Los Angeles home she’s renting while competing on Dancing with the Stars, as Jolie naps peacefully downstairs. “If I can help one person, I’ll be thankor wh what w haat h happened ful for happened—and I can move forward.”

‘I WALKED AROUND ON EGGSHELLS, TERRIFIED AND ASHAMED OF THE SITUATION I HAD PUT MYSELF IN’
>> I met Mike when I was 19 at a Coffee Bean in L.A. He was a smooth talker, very charming, intriguing and obviously older. At that time, I liked that. I felt protected. Two weeks later we drove to Vegas and joked about getting married, and the next thing I knew we were going through a drivethrough wedding chapel. I wasn’t even old enough to drink, so we went back to the Hard Rock and had a brownie and ice cream. I think I was rebelling in a way. I’d always been really straight, never got in trouble or did anything crazy. I’d like to think I was raised better than to do stupid stuff —JANA KRAMER like that. I think I just wanted love so bad.
and said, “I’m going to let them go if you don’t come home.” He’d kick me out of the house, I’d sleep in the car, and then the next morning I’d be with him in bed again. If I’d go for an audition, he’d say, “You’re never going to get a job. You’re fat. You’re ugly.” He’d be like, “I own this town. I’ll destroy you,” and I’d believe it. Those incidents happened all the time. My self-confidence went down each time he was abusive.
Kramer’s childhood was not always happy, and she believes her family’s dynamic affected her later in life.
When he choked her on Valentine’s Day after a fight, she still didn’t tell anyone.
Nothing was ever good enough for my father [Martin Kramer], and I was distrustful of him. I was always trying to get his attention, and through therapy I realized that followed through into my relationships. It wasn’t the best model. My mom [Nora] is extremely strong now, but I didn’t see that as a kid. So when I met Mike, he was that older guy I was trying to impress.
We had been out to eat, and we got into an argument—I don’t even remember what it was about—and he opened the car door to throw me out. I said, “Please, stop! What did I do wrong no now?” Then we got back to our apartm ment, and that’s when he choked me aggainst the wall in the stairwell. I just crried. He blamed me. Another time, hee threw me up against a mirror and it shattered. Each time, it got worse, bu ut I would try harder for him to love m me. I still wake up every single night att 3 o’clock in the morning and have to caatch my breath and know that I’m safe an nd that he’s not coming for me.
A few weeks into their marriage, Kramer told Gambino she wanted an annulment. Upset, he disappeared.
Next thing I know I get a call from him, and he says his dad had died and that he’s so sorry. He said he really loved me and the fact that I wanted to get the marriage annulled hurt his feelings. But it turned out his dad hadn’t died. That was a lie. Everything he said was a lie. He said he was a deejay for Eminem and worked in clubs, but I’d eventually learn he was a con man who’d been to jail and had other wives and I don’t know how many children. But I believed him then. He resurfaced at Kramer’s bedside weeks later after an illness landed her in the hospital back home in Michigan.
I was like, okay, he’s taking care of me and there for me in one of the scariest times of my life. So that’s when I started to love him. But then the abuse started to slowly creep in. One minute he’d be incredibly happy and tell me he loved me, and the next minute he’d be screaming. When I said, “I can’t do this anymore,” he sent me a photo of my dogs on the freeway
A History of Broken Marriages She split from her second husband, actor Johnathon Schaech (left), in 2010. “We were in two very different places in our lives,” says Kramer, who separated from third husband Mike Caussin in August.
A Hard Worker 1. Kramer’s breakout acting role came in 2009 on One Tree Hill. 2. After veering into country music in 2012, Kramer won New Female Vocalist of the Year at the 2013 ACM Awards. 3. Kramer (with partner Gleb Savchenko) says she’s doing DWTS to “help gain confidence.”
One night Gambino threatened to kill O h Kramer called police but fled to a her. friend’s house rather than file a report.
He was blowing up my phone, saying things like, “I’m going to slit my wrist, you need to come home. You’re the one who did this. You’re so dramatic.” And I went back home and slept with him that night. The last time [on Aug. 6, 2005], my friend Lisa was staying with us. Mike wakes me up and starts choking me, saying, “I saw the [actor’s] number in your phone, and this time I’m really going to f---ing kill you. This time I’m going to get my f---ing gun and you’re going to f---ing die!” When he went to his car to get what she assumed was a gun, Kramer ran out and hid in the bushes.
I remember thinking, “How did I get here, terrified for my life? How did I let it go this far?” And then I saw his car drive away. I thought he was gone. So I went back to the house to grab my phone and car keys, and I’m going back out the front door, and I see him. He takes a rock and puts it in front of the PEOPLE October 17, 2016
“I’ve never felt more beautiful than I do now because I’m Jolie’s mom,” says Kramer (in L.A. in September).
I know that’s so sick. I called him in prison one Christmas when none of my family was around because I felt guilty he couldn’t be home at the holidays. Looking back now, I know it wasn’t my fault, but I was still so much in that abused state. Gradually I got stronger and stronger and realized it wasn’t me. When I got the call that he had committed suicide [in 2012, two years after he was paroled], I felt relief, sadness, guilt, all of those things. But I could sleep a little better at night. Kramer still hasn’t found lasting love. Her divorce from Schaech was finalized in 2011, and she separated from Caussin in August. She says he cheated with multiple women. (Caussin tells People: “I acknowledge that certain actions and behaviors have caused issues in my marriage, and I am deeply sorry for the pain I have caused Jana.”)
Gambino spent two months on the run while Kramer lived in constant fear. Cops finally arrested him following a suicide attempt, and after a short trial he was convicted of attempted murder.
I wrote him letters because I was still connected to him. 56

He’s on top of me choking me, and I’m trying to gouge his eyes or get away, and the whole time he’s screaming, “This is your last f---ing breath.” I literally saw my whole life ﬂash before my eyes. I remember getting one breath, and I saw my mom at my funeral and her saying, “Why didn’t you tell me what was wrong?” And then the last thing I saw was my grandpa, who is my angel, before passing out.
Mike [Caussin] was the biggest of the betrayals, because it was the ﬁrst time in a relationship where I truly loved the version of me. I didn’t feel I had to prove that I was good enough; I was vulnerable and finally at peace with myself. But I was fooled. I couldn’t believe I was in another bad relationship. Literally all I’ve ever wanted is to be loved, to love someone and to have a family and not a broken family like whatIwentthroughasachild.Whichis why it’s so heartbreaking. But now that I have Jolie, I feel like I ﬁnally know my purpose in life: to be her mom. I want to be strong for her. She’s the reason I get up. I don’t have everything ﬁgured out, obviously, but I feel like I’m in a place where I don’t have to be ashamed. I don’t want to play the victim. Even though my past isn’t pretty, it’s shaped me into the person I am today, and now I want to help people. I want to help women get out of bad situations. I want women to know that your past doesn’t deﬁne you. I want Jolie to know what a strong woman looks like.

LINE OF FIRE “You’re giving your all every day,” says McGarner. Above, the funeral for sheriff’s deputy Brad Garafola, one of three officers killed July 17.

aton Rouge Police Lt. Robert McGarner spots the group of teenage boys parked in a car outside a convenience store and pulls up. He knows they should be in school, but after a few questions and a check on some pills found in their car, he lets them go. Once released, one of the teens storms off yelling, “They want to f--- with their own color.” McGarner doesn’t react. “You hear it all the time,” he says. But with neighborhood homicides climbing and more lawbreakers greeting conflict with guns, his guard is up. “You deﬁnitely have to keep your head on a swivel these days,” he says. “It may be your turn next time.” It’s always tough to be a cop. But with deadly, racially tinged conflict erupting across the country, it’s an especially difficult time to be a black cop. Officer-involved shootings of black men in Baton Rouge, St. Paul, Tulsa, Charlotte, N.C., and other cities have fueled a crisis—with increased scrutiny, protests and federal investigations—over police violence. The year also saw a spike in attacks on police officers: A October 17, 2016 PEOPLE
sniper shattered a peaceful Black Lives Matter march in Dallas on July 7, killing ﬁve officers whom he said he had targeted because they were white. Another gunman with racially motivated fury directed at police killed three officers and wounded three more in Baton Rouge on July 17. “We’re all mad at each other; nobody is listening,” says McGarner, a friend of one of the officers killed. “You have people out there thinking all police ofﬁcers are this,allpolice officers are that.At theend of the day we all bleed the same. We’re all children of God. I pray to God we’re going to get better.”
Born in Baton Rouge, McGarner, 47, became a cop
“by accident,” he says. His late father, Robert Sr., worked construction; his mother Marian, 74, walked seven miles to and from work as a hotel manager. “I never cut one day of school,” he says. “If Marian would have found out—this woman is five feet tall—there’d be hell to pay.” McGarner earned a college baseball scholarship but dropped out when it didn’t cover expenses and then spent six years in the Army. Afterward his brother Clarence, 46—a Baton Rouge police officer—told him the department was hiring. McGarner met with a department recruiter, and by the end of the week “they wanted to know my shirt size and pant size.” He went home and told his mom: “I think I just joined the police department.” Itwasadeﬁningmoment—andoneheneversecond-guessed, even after he and his wife, Iliaka, now 47, welcomed daughter Xzalyn, now 21 and a junior in college studying criminal justice. He knows the dangers but insists it’s something he is called to do: “You’re not going to get rich, you’re going to work long hours. . . . This is a job you have to want to do.” In his 28 yearswith thedepartment, he’s worked in SWAT, narcotics and on the mayor’s detail, all before starting the street-crimes unit he now commands.

2 1. “There’s more to us than law enforcement,” says McGarner (stopping at Dixon’s Barber Shop). “Little kids come up to you and want to shake your hand.” 2. “More officers should take time to stop and get out of their car,” he says (at Benny’s Lounge, a local bar). “Start getting that rapport.” 3. “People don’t want to deal with the police unless they need them,” says McGarner (on patrol). “Bottom line, when we’re called, we’re coming. We’re ready to take that bullet if we have to.”

grasped the value of getting out of his police car to greet others over a handshake or at a church social. “We’re street lawyers, social workers; people call us to discipline their kids—you name it, we do it,” he says. “Everyone in the neighborhood isn’t ‘bad.’ You just have a small section causing all the problems.” To that small group, he also reaches out. “I’d rather talk a person out of going to jail than put them in jail,” he says. McGarner tries to convince the kids he arrests today “you can’t beat the streets; the streets are undefeated. If you’re out there living that life, either you’re going to die or you’re going to end up in the penitentiary.” But “they don’t value life at all,” he says. “Everything is solved with a gun.”
The July 5 police shooting in Baton Rouge of Alton
Sterling—a federal investigation is still under way—and the attack 12 days later that left three Baton Rouge police officers dead brought tensions to a head. McGarner knew all the officers killed but was closest to fellow black officer Montrell Jackson, and he identifies with the fear, uncertainty and weariness Jackson expressed in a Facebook post he made shortly before his death. “In uniform I get nasty hateful looks and out of uniform some consider me a threat,” Jackson wrote. “I swear to God I love this city, but I wonder if this city loves me.” “He was right on point,” McGarner says. “You run into people you’ve known, are related to, all of them have different opinions on everything going on. If your opinions are not exactly their opinions, it turns into an argument. They want to label you.” But the deaths of Jackson, fellow Baton Rouge officer Matthew Gerald and East Baton Rouge Parish sheriff’s deputy Brad Garafola also “opened up a lot of eyes,” he says. And they put a focus on what officers do and endure. Another black officer, Cpl. Fred Thornton, says, “There’s a disconnect between social media and what’s really going on. People from all walks of life are coming up to us, saying, ‘I support you guys.’” In the days after the officers were killed, “we didn’t pay for a meal,”
Thornton says. “People I didn’t even know came to cut my grass.” Adds McGarner, who rode in the police processions for each of the fallen officers: “I don’t know what other people were looking at, but I saw black and white lining the streets.”
Still, the Sterling shooting remains a flash point
both inside and outside of the ranks, putting McGarner at times at odds with family and friends who blame police racism for Sterling’s death and demand accountability. “We hate to ever hear a police officer has been involved in a shooting and

had to take someone’s life,” he says. “Why are the officers involved not in jail?” he is asked. “These are questions I can’t answer.” McGarner says he supports Black Lives Matter but also points out: “Everyone wants to jump on a soapbox when law enforcement engages a person and a civilian ends up getting killed,” he says. “We have young black males out here killing and shooting each other all day. The only people raising hell about this are the victims’ families and the police. We’re the ones trying to get these kids to stop all this foolishness. We need to start bringing all of it to attention. I’m sick and tired of seeing a man young enough to be my son lying out there. It’s stupidity.” It also fuels his drive to do more beyond just “helping people,” his straightforward answer when asked what he likes about being a cop. He recalls the kid he stopped two or three times, always with a gun and drugs on him. Finally the kid listened to what McGarner told him about the fate he faced, went back to school and now has a steady job. “If you save one, it’s worth it,” McGarner says. “People tell me all the time, ‘I would never do your job.’ But somebody has to do it. You’re born to do it,” he says. “I wouldn’t know how to do anything else.”

Everyone has ups and downs, but I’m so madly in love with my husband, and I love my family. DEAN This baby is truly a testament to how much we love each other, and it’s a testament to Tori for staying with me. It’s amazing. Love does conquer all.

yan Speedo Green didn’t have anyone’s idea of a happy childhood. Raised in a rough Yorktown, Va., housingprojectbyasingle mother, he became troubled and violent and was put in a class for “the worst of the worst,” as he puts it, at age 10. On the ﬁrst day, he threw a desk at his teacher. “There was a blind anger in me,” he says. Luckily, there was also resilience, determination—and a very big voice. Against all odds, Green grew up to be an opera singer; he’s now starring in La Bohème at New York City’s Metropolitan Opera and is the subject of a new biography,Sing for Your Life. “You can overcome things,” he says, “and pursue your dreams.” It wasn’t an easy road. At 12, Green landed in juvenile detention after pulling a knife on his mom; it was there that he decided to “channel that rage into other things.” Nurtured by Betty Hughes, the same teacher he’d once aimed his desk at (“She gave me constructive discipline”), he discovered he could sing and won a music scholarship to the University of Hartford’s Hartt School. He went on to win the Met’s prestigious National Council Auditions in 2011. Now, when he’s not performing around the world, Green, 30, lives in Vienna with his wife, Irene, whom he married this past spring. He credits his success to Hughes and other teachers who “told me I wasn’t just a number, just a color—I could be somebody.” He still can’t quite believe who that is. “I wake up every morning,” he says, “and pinch myself.”

myself brave. I have a lot of fight in me’ MICKEY GUYTON
After years of trying to make it as a country star, the singer, 33, is ﬁnally putting the ﬁnishing touches on her debut album, due early next year
PROFESSION Country singer BORN Arlington, Texas LIVES Nashville
PEGGY SIROTA; INSET: CHRIS HOLLO/© GRAND OLE OPRY
Country Roots—and Her First Inspiration I grew up in Texas, where country and gospel music is all you hear. When I was 9, I went on a field trip with my church to see a Texas Rangers baseball game. I remember we were all the way up in the nosebleeds, and the announcer said, “Please rise as 10-year-old LeAnn Rimes sings the national anthem.” This was before she was even bubbling on the scene yet. She sang it, and I will never forget it. I was just completely in awe of her and her voice. And that’s where I first got the bug for country music.
Clearing the Hurdles
It is really hard for women [to get played on country radio], period. Do I face extra obstacles? Absolutely. I have people saying things all the time, like, “Oh my God, you sing country? That’s not you.” But it is me. Why can’t it be me? Why is it not normal? My family is so country! Still, I knew that it wasn’t going to be easy. There isn’t a lot of diversity in country music. But I get a lot of messages on Facebook and Twitter from women about how I am opening doors for them. And that’s what pushes me, reading messages like that. I feel like I’m every woman.
My debut at the Grand Ole Opry! There is no higher honor in my personal opinion, in country music, than getting to sing on that stage. When the crowd gave me a standing ovation, I just bawled my eyes out.
Looking Ahead I want to headline my own tour, maybe do some acting, put out another album and win a Grammy. No pressure, but being the next Dolly Parton would be up there. I mean, what girl wouldn’t want her own theme park?
IN IT TO WIN IT “Pursuing music is absolutely crazy. I don’t care who you are,” says Guyton, whose single “Heartbreak Song” is out now. “It takes courage, effort and patience. Only the fighters win.”

Sandra Lee THE CELEBRITY CHEF, 50, SHARES HER TIPS FOR FEELING BEAUTIFUL BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER A BREAST CANCER DIAGNOSIS
CLOCKWISE FROM TOP RIGHT: SLAVEN VLASIC/GETTY IMAGES; ED OUELLETTE(2); IDA MAE ASTUTE/GETTY IMAGES
BE KIND TO YOURSELF “A cancer diagnosis is a very scary thing. [In March 2015 Lee was diagnosed with DCIS, ductal carcinoma in situ, a noninvasive cancer contained within the milk ducts that can become invasive if left untreated. She had a double mastectomy followed by reconstruction.] At first I was angry with myself and scared because my cells in my body were changing. But at the end of the day, you need to remember that it’s not the end. Allow yourself emotionally to go through the process
but not to wallow in any one of those places for any extended period of time. There is more life to be lived. And you are in control of that. Be patient with yourself, and do what your body is telling you to do.” LEARN FROM YOUR BAD DAYS “[Negative] moments are natural. Those are when you learn the most about yourself, your bandwidth and your strength. Give yourself enough time to be sad. Then you come through to
After being diagnosed, Lee says, she got “amazing advice” from Good Morning America anchor and breast eas cancer survivor bin Roberts. Robi

h other h side, d take k the control and do what you have to do to get to where you need to be.” FOCUS ON YOUR EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING “I want people to know that at any time during this process, we’re all beautiful. The way we physically look is much less important than how we emotionally feel. Beauty is skin-deep, and it will show on the outside how you’re feeling on the inside. It doesn’t matter what your chest size is—my value is not what I look like. In fact, I am 30 lbs. heavier than before I got sick. Your longevity on this planet is much more important than your external figure.”
SURROUND YOURSELF WITH POSITIVITY “It’s an incredibly powerful thing when you have family an nd n friends. I got inspiration from in
‘BEAUTY IS OWNING WHO YOU ARE NO MATTER WHAT STAGE IN LIFE YOU’RE AT OR WHAT DIAGNOSIS YOU’RE GIVEN’
Christina Applegate, Robin Roberts and more survivors. They told me to focus on the endgame, not where you are in the moment, and don’t get overwhelmed. That in itself makes you feel beautiful, because you feel appreciated, loved and insulated.” INFORM OTHERS “You must teach the next generation to be in control of their own health. An early diagnosis can save your life. So go get your mammograms and regular checkups—even if you’re under the age that’s suggested.” [The American Cancer Society suggests women at an average risk get an annual mammogram starting at age 45.]
2015 2016 THEN AND NOW Lee attended the Primetime Emmy Awards in 2015 after her double mastectomy and again in 2016 after reconstruction. “It shows how much difference a year makes,” she says. “It made me realize the journey I’d gone through.” She is now cancer-free. PEOPLE October 17, 2016

dazzle in your handbags too? I look for space! [Laughs] But again, it’s a complement to a look. Sometimes you want it to blend into the background, and sometimes you want it to be the highlight— the thing that makes a look pop. Is there anything you hoard? Nail polish. I have nailpolishing parties with my friends. It’s the one thing I find very hard to give away. What’s the secret to your amazing confidence? Love what you wear more than anyone else does. Then it’s fun no matter what.
HER REGAL HEAD WRAPS Nyong’o’s Uganda-set film Queen of Katwe inspired her new favorite look. “Going with the theme of the movie, they are my crowns,” says the star, who works with her stylist Micaela Erlanger and hairstylist Vernon François to customize the pieces. “It’s the quintessential African accessory.”

What’s your process for choosing a red carpet ensemble? [My team and I] are a well-oiled machine now. It’s very organic and low-stress. We always start with what I’m wearing, and then we find things to complement it. It feels like creating performance art. My favorite part of the red carpet is getting ready with them. Where do you find inspiration? I love using Pinterest. It’s a great place to hold on to things that captivate you. The last thing I put on a board was probably a head wrap that inspired me.

Mary Steenburgen THE ACTRESS, 63, STARS IN FOX’S POSTAPOCALYPTIC COMEDY THE LAST MAN ON EARTH Last time I danced Last night. My husband [Ted Danson] and I were having a party, and we both started dancing. I probably dance more at home than in public for sure. There’s always music in my head.
Last time I cried The day before yesterday. It was definitely sad tears, and I’ll just say it was at the cruelty of a politician and leave it at that. Hillary [Clinton] has been my friend for 38 years, so I’m very hopeful that she’ll win, and that will make me much more hopeful for everybody in the world.
Last guilty pleasure Last night after everybody left, I raided my darkchocolate stash. And when the world is too much for us, we love to watch HGTV.
Last class I took I’m taking accordion lessons. My husband got me this little green accordion for Valentine’s Day about 21⁄2 years ago. I don’t think he ever thought I would stick with it.

Our dog Arthur made me laugh last night. We set up this lovely bed for him, and he went over to it and I said, “See, he loves it!” and three seconds later he jumped up on our bed like, “No.” I’ve tried to be a good mom setting boundaries with our kids, but with the dog I cannot say anything but yes. He definitely has me figured out. Reported by Julie Jordan
