‘Growing up, I never felt overweight or fat, so it shocked me.... In a way, it shaped me for the better, because it taught me to rise above and to love my body no matter what.’ —SIMONE BILES, on dealing with a former coach’s bodyshaming comments, to People
‘I think it’ll be a lifetime of feeling guilt. No matter what you do, I think that’s just what happens when you’re a parent.’
‘Every single one of them has a life...has a story and contributes differently.’ —WILMER VALDERRAMA, on the importance of embracing immigrants, to People
—ZOE KAZAN, on overcoming her eating disorder, in an essay for the New York Times
Travis Fimmel The Australian actor, 37, stars in History channel’s Vikings The fourth season of Vikings continues on Nov. 30. What have you enjoyed most about filming the show? Working in Ireland with the crew over there. And I appreciate them letting [my character] Ragnar age so much. It makes it different and interesting.
—ISLA FISHER, on how she often gets mistaken for Amy Adams, to People
‘I didn’t get better all at once—it took years for me to stop counting calories, stop needing a system to get through a meal. Years to get my brain back.’
‘The last living Asian in the postapocalyptic universe, and you just kill him?’
—KEN JEONG, joking about Glenn being killed off on The Walking Dead at the People’s Choice Awards nominations
Any challenges? I really don’t like sitting in the makeup chair for an hour and a half each morning, but that’s what we had to do to make the aging [process] look real. Everybody involved is very talented. What can fans expect for the rest of this season? It’s exciting because Ragnar has so many kids now. His older kids are grown, and it’s time for a new generation to come through, so it’s really fresh. Where do you see yourself in 10 years? I’ll be in Australia on a big farm, living on a river. I’ve just got to make enough money, and then I can do it. —JULIE JORDAN

ﬁre on President Ronald Reagan outside a Washington, D.C., hotel. Reagan took a bullet to the chest. A Secret Service agent and a policeman were also wounded. The most seriously injured was White House Press Secretary James Brady, who was shot in the head and left paralyzed. For the rest of their lives, Brady and his wife, Sarah, fought to keep guns out of the hands of the dangerous and unstable. Today the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence continues that mission. On Nov. 15, at the Brady Center Bear Awards, Katie Couric (whose eye-opening documentary Under the Gun came out this year) and the law ﬁrm of Paul, Weiss were honored. I also accepted an honor for People’s Call to Action, urging readers to reach out to their representatives in Washington to ﬁnd out what they’re doing about the gun-violence epidemic (contact information for all 535 voting members of Congress can be found at people.com/call-congress). In our ongoing series Finding Solutions to Gun Violence, we also proﬁle dedicated citizens working tirelessly to make their own communities safer. I’m so proud of these initiatives and grateful to the People team and the Brady Center. We will continue to celebrate community heroes, and when the new Congress takes its place in January, we will make sure you know how to make your voice heard. Speaking of making the world a better place: This week we’re launching a new feature called People at Their Best, which celebrates ordinary people doing extraordinary acts of kindness. On page 76 you’ll see the story of Natasha Nkhama, a Baylor University student who was shoved and called a racist slur on campus on Nov. 9. Two wo days la later, later after wo word of the incident spread, 300 people from the Baylor community gathered to walk her to class. With ugly acts of hate speech spreading across the country since the presidential election (as a Baylor alum, I’m sickened that it happened there), the swift and energetic reaction by students and others sends a strong, inspiring message about what we as a nation really stand for.

A Husband’s Loving Legacy Bob Wright, 73, is used to fighting battles with his wife, Suzanne, by his side. Together they founded Autism Speaks after their grandson was diagnosed with the disorder (People, July 13, 2015). But Wright’s latest initiative is for his wife of 49 years, who died in July from pancreatic cancer. On Nov. 16 Wright launched the Suzanne Wright Foundation (CodePurpleNow.org) to raise funds and A CAUSE FOR LOVE awareness about the disease. Until her diagnosis he had Bob and Suzanne no idea how few treatments were available. “While she Wright.

On Nov. 16, reports claimed that Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife, 39, had gone missing in Utah with their twin sons Bob and Max following a bizarre altercation that took place in their presence in a bar—leading many to fear for the 7-year-olds’ safety. Now Mueller is hospitalized and receiving psychiatric treatment after her mother, Moira Wolofsky Fiore, says Mueller stopped taking her meds. (The boys “are fine” and in her care, Fiore says.) It’s yet another sad chapter in Mueller’s painful history—and one that leads to renewed concerns for the kids, of whom Mueller has retained physical custody despite a 2011 arrest for alleged cocaine possession and numerous stints in rehab for her crippling addiction.

Mama would make us rag dolls. We’d cut down the tree ourselves and made our own decorations. What’s the holiday like for you now? We just do it in finer fashion. I love having my little nieces and nephews over for cookie night and presents. You’ve produced this TV movie. What’s next? I’m developing a few series. I’d love to work with [my goddaughter] Miley Cyrus on one of them. And Reba McEntire. I think she’s great. Or Reese Witherspoon. We’ve been friends for years. I’m sure that will all come to be at the right time.

“It’s really a mix of characters that are endemic to American society,” Macy’s executive parade producer Amy Kule says of how they decide which balloons will fly each year. “We have long conversations about what will make sense.” Though the parade has been running since 1924 (it took a hiatus for a few years during WW II), the balloons didn’t actually make their first appearance until 1927, when Felix the Cat was the first character. So in all these years, have any ever broken free? “They’re very well-secured,” Kule says, though she notes that up until 1931 the balloons were allowed to float away at the end of the parade, and whoever found them deflated in their backyard could bring in the tag for a special gift from Macy’s. She adds, “In 2026, for the 100th parade, I hope to let them go up in the air again!”
Spider-Man, 2010 “We have anywhere from 45 to 70 handlers under each balloon,” says Kule. “It depends on how it flies. Square balloons are hardest!”

The Women’s Heart Alliance cofounder, 74, is working to prevent heart disease
Heart disease and stroke are the No. 1 killers of women. PERSONAL STORIES When I became aware of the major gender disparity in ABOUT GIVING heart disease research, funding and treatment—a majority BACK of heart research is done on men—I knew I had to try to do something about it. I made a movie called Yentl about a young woman who had to pretend she was a man to get an education. That experience ignited my passion to fight to give women the same chances in life as men. For me, it’s about gender equality. Women are 50 percent more likely to be given a wrong diagnosis after a heart attack and are at a greater risk of dying within a year of a heart attack than men. Heart attack symptoms present differently in women. Instead of the classic symptom of crushing pain in the chest, women might feel nausea and fatigue. Eating nutritious foods, reducing stress, getting a good night’s sleep and finding time to exercise will help prevent heart disease and stroke.

When Moana met Maui: Auli’i Cravalho and Dwayne Johnson provide the voices.
A girl braves the ocean—and stands up to Dwayne Johnson—in a Disney dazzler ANIMATED Moana (pronounced mo-WAH-nah) lives on a Paciﬁc island where the carefully tended ecosystem produces the best farm-to-table food imaginable—and where, someday, she’ll inherit the power to rule from her father, the chief. In short, it’s paradise. Until it’s not: The coconuts begin to rot and the ﬁsh swim off beyond the reef and into the dangerous ocean that the chief forbids his people from sailing. Moana’s grandmother, the human equivalent of that mystical old tree in Pocahontas, knows the cause of this curse: It all goes back to Maui (Johnson), demigod of wind and sea, and his betrayal of Te Fiti, full-ﬂedged nature goddess. Moana (Cravalho), propelled by a sense of destiny, sets sail to ﬁnd Maui and right the world: A girl conquering the vast blue ocean all on her own isn’t going to worry about glass ceilings. The movie is a lovely adventure, and it comes with a highly hummable score by a team that includes Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton). “How Far I’ll Go,” Moana’s big song, should ﬁnally allow you to let go of Frozen’s “Let It Go.” (Nov. 23, PG)
Here’s looking at you, kids: Pitt and Cotillard meet in Casablanca.
Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard make love in war, then war in love DRAMA Merci, Madame Cotillard, for being Pitt’s ﬁrst onscreen leading lady since his split from the one with the soaring cheekbones. You’re superb in director Robert Zemeckis’s intriguing, not completely successful spies-and-sex epic. It starts as a sort of homage to Casablanca, with you and Pitt as Allied operatives in 1940s Morocco. (In the ﬁlm’s best scene, you make love inside a car during a sandstorm: It’s likeLawrence of Arabia as a date movie.) Then things segue into a morose, Graham Greene-like story in which Pitt, now your husband, suspects you of being a German agent. Pitt mostly looks stricken, as if he’d eaten substandard tinned meat, which puts the kibosh on sexual chemistry. But you, with your large eyes and delicate nervousness, project genuine mystery. The ﬁlm would be better as I Spy. (Nov. 23, R)

It focuses instead on the bluecollar brawn, decency and singularity of his family and community in Rhode Island. That’s the ﬁlm’s true strength. (In theaters, R)

The incredible true story of an adoptee’s odyssey
Desperately poor but deeply loved, 5-year-old Saroo (Sunny Pawar) ﬁnds himself separated from his family in India, stuck on a train hurtling to Calcutta. The lost little boy winds up adopted by an Australian couple (Nicole Kidman and David Wenham) and grows into a popular young man (Dev Patel) increasingly gnawed by the longing to search for his birth family, even though he doesn’t know his hometown or his mother’s name. With sensitive performances by the charismatic Patel and the quietly heartbreaking Kidman (and a crucial turn by Google Earth), the true story explores the power of family, love and human decency. Just what we need right about now. (Nov. 25, PG-13)

ourteen-year-old Sheila Sharp had spent the night at a friend’s house just next door to her family’s cabin in the idyllic Keddie Resort in Northern California. She’d been up late, talking about boys and school, laughing and giggling with her friend and fellow eighth-grader Alicia Seabolt. But when Sheila awoke on the morning of Sun., April 12, 1981, planning to go to church with the Seabolt family, she realized she’d forgotten her curling iron, so she raced home to Cabin 28 to get it. As she turned the doorknob and stepped into her family’s living room, Sheila’s screams pierced the morning stillness. Inside was a scene of unspeakable horror: The bodies of her mother, Sue, 36, her brother, Johnny, 15, and his best friend Dana Wingate, 17, were bound with tape and electrical wire.

Cabin 28, where Sheila Sharp discovered the bodies of her mother, Sue, brother Johnny and his friend Dana Wingate, was torn down in 2004. 3.

A possible murder weapon has been recovered. A terse voice recording, sealed and buried in a ﬁle but never pursued, may at last identify the anonymous caller who claimed knowledge of Tina’s remains. A recovered letter from an early suspect that reads like a smoking-gun confession has reopened avenues left unexplored. For Sheriff Hagwood, a conclusion to the case would reverse his predecessors’ past failures. “Unﬁnished business is completely unacceptable,” he says. “It is our fundamental obligation to the victims and the surviving family members to understand who did this and why.” “Finally,” says Sheila, “I have somebody that cares.”

THIS PAGE: KEDDIE28(4)
Sue left Connecticut for Northern California, where her brother Don worked in Quincy for the railroad. They relocated just down the highway from Quincy to Keddie and the rustic twobedroom, one-bath Cabin 28 in 1980. Sheila’s little brothers Greg and Rick had one bedroom, while Sue, Sheila and Tina shared the other; Johnny took the basement. On a hill below a mountainside rail depot that once welcomed tourists from the San Francisco Bay area for ﬁshing and horseback riding in the former Gold Rush territory, the Keddie Resort still had its two-story lodge, bar and restaurant. Though the resort was already in decline, Sheila remembers feeling safe and happy there. “I loved it,” she says. “It was lots of snow in the wintertime. We all played outside in the summertime, springtime. It was fun.” From her mom, Sheila learned a love of reading and how to crochet. “She was creative,” Sheila says. Says Rick Sharp, 46: “I don’t ever remember her yelling at us. She was a good mom.” While Sue worked at the Elks Lodge and aspired to take college business classes, Sheila took responsibility for feeding and readying her siblings for school. “She pretty much raised us,” Rick says of his sister. Johnny was “feisty,” says Sheila, prone to hitchhiking into town—but always poised to protect his family. Tina “was definitely younger mentally than she was in age,” Sheila says. “She reminds me of somebody who is very angelic.” Over the years Sheila has tried not to dwell on the day her life changed forever, but the images are ones she can’t push out of her mind: the body of her brother Johnny covered in blood and lying face up beside his best friend Dana; Sue’s body covered by a yellow blanket nearby. All had been bludgeoned with a hammer and stabbed repeatedly. For the ﬁrst years after the murders, Sheila desperately held out hope that Tina would be found alive, her kidnappers apprehended. “Not knowing where she was for three years,” says Sheila, “it was really, really tough.” The
APRIL 11, 1984 On the third anniversary of the killings, a man collecting bottles in the woods some 50 miles from Keddie finds a severed skull. An anonymous 911 caller later claims the skull is that of Tina Sharp. Authorities confirm her identity through dental records.
THE VICTIMS Clockwise, from top left: Sue Sharp was a single mother of five who had fled a broken marriage; Tina, 12, had a tight bond with sister Sheila; Johnny, 15, was man of the house; his best friend Dana Wingate, 17, was at the cabin for a sleepover that night.
JUNE 2013 Plumas County Sheriff Greg Hagwood hires retired sheriff’s investigator Mike Gamberg to organize files on the case with an eye toward reexamining it. Gamberg later confirms an earlier investigator’s report that Smartt had confessed to the killings during a therapy session.
split-second joy Sheila felt hearing Tina had been found was crushed moments later by the circumstances. “I didn’t have my big brother to look up to, and I lost my only sister, and we were close,” she says. “It made me stronger, because I’ve had to look out for my two younger brothers. They’re the ones that have kept me going.” But the stalled investigation into the murders weighed heavily. “It was just this open wound that became her life,” says Sheila’s cousin Tammie Davis, 50. Adds Sheila: “I thought the adults would do something. After I got older, you call the sheriff’s office every once in a while, and you hear ‘no new leads,’ ‘nothing’s going on.’ What was I supposed to do?”
MARCH 2016 A junk collector using a metal detector near Keddie finds a bluehandled claw hammer similar to one that Marty Smartt had told police he had lost. Gamberg also discovers a sealed file containing a cassette tape of the anonymous call reporting the discovery of Tina’s remains. Both the hammer and audio recording are sent out for forensic testing. Results are still pending.
APRIL 2016 Thirty-five years after the murders, Gamberg says he is making progress in the investigation and believes he has identified at least six “persons of interest” connected to the case.
A NEW LOOK AT THE EVIDENCE Recently recovered evidence (top) includes a bluehandled steel claw hammer and an audio recording of an anonymous 911 call reportedly identifying Tina’s remains that was found buried in a case file. (A knife used in the killings is also being reexamined.) The case “was poorly investigated,” says investigator Gamberg (with Sheila, in his office in Quincy on April 23), “and that’s a fact.”
Sheriff Hagwood worked the summer before the
murders on a teen painting crew with Johnny and Dana, who were his schoolmates; his mother was a teacher who had Tina in class. A childhood friend had lived in Keddie’s Cabin 28 long before the Sharps moved in. “I stayed in that cabin probably a dozen times,” he says. Named sheriff in 2010, he inherited boxes of ﬁles and evidence on the case, and in June 2013 he brought back retired investigator Mike Gamberg to take a fresh look. Gamberg, who was kept off the case by the sheriff at the time, had coached Johnny and Dana in martial arts, and Dana was at his house the day before he died. “It struck this community harder than anything,” says Gamberg, a father of three boys who would gather their friends and sleep outside on summer nights. “When this happened, it all ended.” A theory that Sue associated with the wrong people, that drugs were involved, led nowhere, Gamberg says: “She was never that kind of individual. She was into her kids.” But she did take a side in a marital dispute between neighbors Marilyn and Marty Smartt, urging Marilyn to leave her husband. In a strange twist Marilyn’s

son (and Marty’s stepson) Justin was in Cabin 28 with the youngest Sharp boys, asleep and unharmed during the murders. In a dream he allegedly recounted under hypnosis in the weeks after the murders, he described a scene that had similarities to the crimes. Gamberg now believes Marty Smartt came to the cabin that night with an ex-con friend named Severin John “Bo” Boubede to confront Sue, and that Tina, Johnny and Dana “walked into a situation that was out of control, and it went downhill,” he says. A letter dug out of the case ﬁle lends that scenario weight: “I’ve paid the price of your love & now that I’veboughtitwithfourpeopleslives,youtellmewe are through,” Marty wrote Marilyn days after the murders. “Great! What else do you want?”(Marilyn says she never saw the letter until years later.) Gamberg also tracked down a therapist in Reno to whom Marty allegedly confessed—and who was shocked to learn that investigators at the time didn’t use that confession to solve the crimes. Former sheriff Doug Thomas, 76, who took a new job soon after the murders and is retired in Sparks, Nev., conﬁrms that Smartt and Boubede were investigated after the murders, “but no evidence proved their involvement.” He says he was not aware at the time of the letter written to Marilyn, which emerged long after the murders. As for the fact that the case wasn’t solved, he says, “We did the best we could, and unfortunately we didn’t do a good enough job to convict somebody, and that’s a shame.” 54

Before ﬂeeing town, Marty did speak to investigators, according to police records. And while one bloodied hammer turned up at the scene, he said his own claw-headed hammer with a blue handle was missing. As news of Gamberg’s investigation spread, a man using a metal detector reported finding just such a hammer in a pond near the crime scene; it’s being tested for DNA. More surprising to Gamberg was his discovery of a sealed ﬁle that held a cassette recording from an anonymous 911 caller saying the skull found in 1984 was Tina’s; it is now being compared to audio interviews of old suspects. “Initially people’s silence was a measure of overwhelming fear,” says Sheriff Hagwood. “That’s transitioned to a fear of being exposed for not having done something they could have done a long time ago. I truly believe there are people alive who can conﬁrm that which we have long suspected.” Though both Boubede and Smartt have since died, “if a case needs to be pinned there, we’ll pin it.” Adds Gamberg: “That in itself is solving the crime.” Sheila and her brothers “will know that somebody never gave up on it.” For Sheila, living 500 miles away in Salem, Ore., that means everything. “I don’t think there really is any type of closure,” she says. “We still have to live on without our loved ones.” Like her brother Rick, she concedes the years she spent making peace with the past won’t change the future. “I need answers,” Sheila says. “Now I honestly think I’m going to get them.”

SIX DECADES OF FAME “When I came to Hollywood, I was the youngest one in the room,” says Beatty (inset, ca. 1960). “Now I’m afraid the converse is true.”
MY LIFE in PICTURES
THE HOLLYWOOD LEGEND LOOKS BACK ON HIS MOVIES, HIS FAMOUS EXES AND HOW HE FOUND HAPPINESS AS A FAMILY MAN By CHRIS NASHAWATY

YOUNG LOVE Beatty and his first famous girlfriend, Joan Collins, in 1961. “She was so beautiful and very underestimated as a comedienne. Now she’s Dame Joan Collins. I’m happy to say she’s no longer underestimated.”
SIXTIES SPLENDOR He dated Splendor in the Grass costar Natalie Wood in the early ’60s.“Our relationship began after the movie came out,” he says. The former child star was a complex figure: “This is a girl who started making a lot of money at the age of 4, and that’s very complicated.”
or more than half a century Warren Beatty has been famous. He’s been a folk hero and a fool, a scoundrel and a seducer. And that’s just onscreen in such classics as Bonnie and Clyde, Shampoo and Reds. Offscreen he’s led a life as epic and eventful as anything Hollywood could possibly imagine. He’s dined with royalty, counseled Presidents and dated some of the most celebrated women on the planet. “There are very few times when I’ve minded being famous,” says Beatty, 79, in the library of the sprawling Beverly Hills estate he shares with his wife of 24 years, Annette Bening, and two of their four children. “It’s had its pluses and minuses, but in the end, I’d rather have it than not.” Now, after an 18-year hiatus from filmmaking during which Beatty embraced the role of stay-at-home dad,
HOLLYWOOD OUTLAW Beatty (with Faye Dunaway) became a producing force with the violent, glamorous gangster saga Bonnie and Clyde in 1967. “I wanted to be in control,” he says of the film many say ignited the New Hollywood revolution. “That’s an exaggeration,” says Beatty, “but I like to hear it said.”

ROMANCE AND THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION Beatty and Diane Keaton were a couple in real life and onscreen in 1981’s Reds, his epic about the American Communist movement. “I love her,” he says. “She’s a combination of integrity, humor, intelligence and did I say beauty?”
OSCAR RUNS IN THE FAMILY Beatty and his older sister Shirley MacLaine at the 1966 Academy Awards. “I was lucky to grow up with a feminist mother and a feminist sister. We’re very close.”
MCCABE & MS. CHRISTIE Beatty and Julie Christie dated for seven years and costarred in three films, including 1971’s McCabe & Mrs. Miller. They remain close friends. “When she and her husband come to L.A., they stay in our guesthouse.”
WHO’S THAT GIRL? Beatty and Madonna began dating on the set of 1990’s Dick Tracy. “She’s a huge personality,” he says, but they differed over privacy. She “doesn’t want to live off-camera,” he declared in her Truth or Dare documentary. Says Beatty now: “That captured how I felt.”
PEOPLE December 5, 2016
the Oscar-wining director is finally back behind the camera with his new movie Rules Don’t Apply. The film, which Beatty also cowrote, produced and stars in, is a comedic 1950s-set love story about two naive show-business newcomers (Lily Collins and Alden Ehrenreich) swept up in the controlling web of eccentric billionaire Howard Hughes (Beatty). It’s a story that Beatty, a notorious perfectionist, has been ﬂirting with for 40 years. “People always ask why I don’t work more,” says Beatty. “The truth is, it’s because I’ve also had a life. The biggest thing that’s ever happened to me is my children and Annette. That’s bigger than fame, and it came not a moment too soon.”
JACK, WARREN AND...TRUMP? Donald Trump flew Beatty and pal Jack Nicholson to Atlantic City for the 1988 Mike Tyson-Michael Spinks fight. Of Trump, the outspoken liberal says, “anyone who would be interested in my feelings would know my feelings.” Why didn’t he enter politics himself? “I’ve grown to think that to run for office is more like running for crucifixion.”
MRS. RIGHT Beatty says of his first encounter with Bening (here at the 2011 Oscars) while casting 1991’s Bugsy: “I felt immediately that this was going to change my life.”

arried for 10 years to country star Keith Urban and happily raising their two daughters, Sunday, 8, and Faith, 5, in Nashville, Nicole Kidman says she is in “such a good place.” But the actress, 49, is the ﬁrst to admit her road to happily ever after had a few hairpin turns along the way. The self-described “shy” girl from Australia was thrust into the worldwide spotlight at 22 after she was cast in Days of Thunder, which led to her marriage to the movie’s star, Tom Cruise. They divorced in 2001, but as her personal life fell apart, her professional one took off, and she won an Oscar two years later for The Hours. Kidman is earning awards buzz again—and exploring issues close to her heart—with her new movie, the true-life drama Lion (see review, page 42). She plays Sue Brierley, the Australian adoptive mom of an Indian boy who searches for his birth family. Kidman reﬂects on her journey with People and Entertainment Weekly’s editorial director in the latest episode of The Jess Cagle Interview. “What happens when you get to my age is that it all becomes ‘Ah, this is just life,’” she says. “What’s going to come is ‘I’m still going to come. Go with completely the ﬂow. We’ll see what’s in awe that around the corner.”
I’m having the life I have... [I’m] aligned with my purpose now’
What kind of conversations did you have with Sue Brierley when you set out to play her in the film?
She came to Sydney and we sat in my apartment and just talked. We basically bared ourselves to each other. I could ask her anything and she answered it. She told me really deep, honest truths about herself. I did the same. We formed an immediate connection. You have two adopted children [Isabella, 23, and Connor, 21, with Cruise]. At some point, when you adopt children, they’ll be curious about their birth parents. Do you prepare for that moment?
I can’t speak for other parents, but certainly I do, and Sue did. It’s very much a part of the whole relationship, so it needs to be addressed and discussed. I know the advice you’re given as parents of adopted children was “If they want to ﬁnd their birth parents, you support that.” Days of Thunder launched you here and all over the world. Do you remember the audition process for that?

‘Acting, for me, is not a choice.... I think it was just in my blood’
How did you celebrate?
I was just like, “Oh my God, Mom!” Yeah, that was huge. You know, obviously, it changed my life extraordinarily. I’m so grateful for the ﬁlm, for everything that came with it—a beautiful marriage and two beautiful children. The rest is history. You were promoting Moulin Rouge! when I first met you. You were going through [your] divorce.
Thank God for [director Baz Luhrmann] and all of Fox, actually, at that time. Everyone was so good to me. It was like, “Come on, off we go. Onward.” It was a really good approach.

were in that. What kind of advice do you have to someone whose partner or spouse needs help with that?
You can’t save somebody, they’ve got to save themselves. Which is a very big thing for people, like me, who go, “I can take care of you. I can do it.” As much as I thought, “I can do all the work for him. I can make it better. I can help,” at some point, you just have to say, “I love you and I’m here when you decide to do the work. If you don’t, then that’s it.” Because you cannot save a human being. They have to save themselves. But you can love them and give them enormous support.
After you married Keith, you set up house in Nashville.
ROLES OF A LIFETIME 1. “It was an important part of my life,” Kidman says of making 1990’s Days of Thunder and meeting Tom Cruise. 2. Singing with Ewan McGregor in Moulin Rouge! in 2001. “I had to be convinced I could do it,” she says. 3. As Virginia Woolf in 2002’s The Hours. 4. In the 2007 fantasy The Golden Compass.
I actually feel very, very happy to be a part of that community. That country music community is a very warm community. It’s very protective. Keith’s been a part of it for decades now. It’s his home; it’s our home. I’m just lucky that I fell in love with a guy that lived in Nashville. I was meant to go there. My daughters are Nashvillians! They have a southern drawl. They don’t have any of Mom and Dad’s Australian?
They have some Aussie. They have an unusual mix. They’re hybrids.

THE GIFT OF A FACE
Tragically disﬁgured for 14 years following a horriﬁc accident, ﬁreﬁghter Patrick Hardison becomes the successful recipient of the world’s most extensive face transplant by J E F F N E L S O N
n October 2015, for the first time in more than 14 years, Patrick Hardison felt like just another face in the crowd. “The day I got out of the hospital, I needed a few things, so I went to Macy’s,” says Hardison, 42. “I could tell the difference right then. Nobody was staring, nobody was saying anything. I was just there.” For Hardison, a ﬁreﬁghter who lost most his face to severe burns he suffered in a 2001 ﬁre, it was the moment he began to reclaim his life. “Just a year and a half ago, I didn’t think there was going to be a better tomorrow,” he says. “You have to keep hope alive.” Last year Hardison became the recipient of the world’s most extensive face transplant when doctors took the face of an organ donor and ﬁtted it to Hardison’s badly disﬁgured visage. A medical team led by Dr. Eduardo Rodriguez, a face transplantation specialist at NYU Langone Medical Center in New York, who helped pioneer the ground-breaking procedure, performed the 26-hour surgery on Aug. 14, 2015, two days after ﬁnding the perfect donor match— including blood type, skeletal shape and skin and hair color—in David Rodebaugh, a 26-year-old Brooklyn bike mechanic who had died from brain trauma sustained in a cycling accident.

A LIFE-CHANGING PROCEDURE
Since the surgery, Hardison’s face has gradually transformed as the swelling goes down. About 40 face transplants have been performed worldwide, but “Patrick’s procedure,” says Dr. Rodriguez, “includes the largest amount of soft tissue that’s been transplanted in medicine. Not only the front of the face, but also the ears, eyelids, nose, lips, skin of the neck and hair-bearing scalp.” LiveOnNY President and CEO Helen Irving hopes Hardison’s story and Nancy’s decision to donate her son’s organs inspire others. “To see the gift that she’s been able to give through her son,” says Irving, “means a great deal to her.”

Hardison had always been “a jokester and a people person,” says his ex-wife Chrissi Hardison, 41, who married him in 1998. “He was a hard worker, a provider, and he loved to be around his friends at the ﬁre department. It was a big part of his life.” That life changed on Sept. 5, 2001, when he got a call to respond to a raging house ﬁre. “I was at work, and the call came in,” remembers Hardison, “so I went down to the ﬁrehouse, got in the truck, went to the ﬁre and started doing what we do. It was just a normal day.” But as Hardison was looking for a woman in the blaze, the ceiling collapsed on him in a shower of sparks and ﬂames.

protective mask melting onto his face. The next thing he knew, he was waking up in the hospital, his face completely covered in bandages. “I knew I was hurt,” he says, “but I didn’t know how bad it was.” When the bandages came off six months later, Hardison had lost his hair, ears, eyelids, nose and lips. His daughter Alison, just 7 at the time, remembers seeing her dad for the first time. “His voice was the same but he looked totally different. It was very traumatic,” she says. Adds Chrissi: “The kids were scared of him in the beginning. That was hard for him.” As was adjusting to his loss of independence; Hardison had to rely on family members to help him eat and get him to doctors appointments because he could no longer drive. Plagued by excruciating pain, both from the accident and from the more than 70 surgeries and skin grafts he underwent as a result, he developed an addiction to painkillers (which he’s since overcome) and plunged into a deep depression. “There was a big personality change,” says Chrissi, who had two more children with Hardison (Braden in 2003 and Cullen in 2004) before they ﬁnally divorced in 2008. “He became more introverted and withdrawn because no one could understand what he was going through. He was so angry.” By 2012 further complications involving Hardison’s eyelids had caused his vision to deteriorate. He was told he would eventually be completely blind.

I want to look normal when I walk you down the aisle.’” Says Hardison: “There are things worse in life than death. It doesn’t scare me. It was for my kids.” In August 2015 Hardison got a call from Dr. Rodriguez that LiveOnNY—an organ donation organization—had found a donor, and he ﬂew to New York for the transplant. This time, when his kids visited him at the hospital eight weeks later, they found the father they’d almost lost all those years ago. “I kissed his cheek,” says Alison. “His cheeks were warm,andheblinkedhiseyes.That’s somethingIhadnotfelt or seen for  years. I just walked out into the hallway and started crying. He’s been given a gift to have a second chance at life—that’s what he’s doing.”

that second chance—his donor David’s mother, Nancy Millar. (Her son’s kidneys, liver and heart were also donated.)

We connected that easily.” For her part, Millar, 55 and a toy maker who lives in Columbus, Ohio, had just one request. “I said, ‘Can I kiss your forehead?’” she says. “That’s the one thing I wanted to do because every night before David went to bed when he was little, I kissed his forehead.” Now Hardison is planning the next chapter of his life, hoping to start a career as a motivational speaker. “I want to share my story with wounded warriors, ﬁrst responders and the average person who has no hope and is injured like I was,” he says. “I didn’t have any hope. Now I’ve got a new outlook on life. You have to push through the bad times to get to the good ones.”

The 90-yearold monarch, who was not close with William’s mother, Princess Diana, and was pained by the divorces of three of her children, is now determined to be more inclusive. “The Queen has made a big effort to include the Middletons much more because of the circumstances of William’s childhood,” says Majesty editor-in-chief Ingrid Seward. For their part the Middletons have always been a close family—a bond that is only enhanced by the grandkids. These days when Carole stops by a Bucklebury pub or the annual holiday market (which she visited with Charlotte last year), “people will often jokingly call her ‘Grandma’ for a laugh, which she enjoys,” says a family friend. “She adores being a granny and is always telling people that. She says, ‘I’m loving it.’”

Pieces in 1987 so she could work from home and raise their children. As she did then, Carole (the daughter of Ron, who worked in trucking and as a builder, and Dorothy, a onetime store clerk) is making sure she’s involved in
the day-to-day lives of the family’s youngest members. “Carole will often take the children to Bucklebury Farm Park,” says a villager. “George loves it. She’s just like any other granny, playing with him and fussing with him, making sure he’s clean or has a snack in his hand.” It’s an approach that diverges from the traditional arm’s-length royal model, epitomized by reigning greatgrandmother Queen Elizabeth. “Carole is doing the things a nanny or governess used to,”says royal historian Robert Lacey. Stylish, athletic and fond of “a glass of wine and a gossip” with friends, Carole “loves dancing and letting down her hair,” says the Bucklebury local. Says Lacey: “In terms of a young, trendy granny, there’s been no one like her in the royal family at all.” Although Princess Kate and Prince William have nanny Maria Turrion Borrallo on staff, they often rely on Caroleforextra support. In Marchshe accompanied 3-year-old George and 19-month-old Charlotte on their ﬁrst
‘She adores being a granny and always tells people, “I’m loving it”’
ROYAL FOLD 1. The Middletons (including Kate’s siblings Pippa and James) joined the royals for Charlotte’s christening in 2015. 2. “There are no delusions of grandeur. [Prince] Philip appreciates that,” an insider says of his bond with Carole (in 2012). 3. Michael and Carole (in 2010 on the day Will and Kate’s engagement was announced) have “always been a very, very happy couple,” a friend says of the pair, who have been married 36 years. 4. “I’ve never known a family drawn into the royal family like they have been,” says a source at Balmoral (where Carole joined the Queen for a drive in September). 5. George and Charlotte (in October) attended Easter services with the Middletons in April.

Walk Against Hate
PEOPLE AT THEIR BEST Extraordinary Acts of Kindness
AFTER NATASHA NKHAMA WAS ALLEGEDLY CALLED THE N-WORD ON HER COLLEGE CAMPUS, A FELLOW STUDENT STARTED A MOVEMENT TO LET HER KNOW SHE’S NOT ALONE It happened so fast, but Baylor University
December 5, 2016 PEOPLE
as some charge his campaign rhetoric emboldened bigots. After Nkhama shared the incident in a Facebook Live video, 19-year-old Baylor sophomore Gabrielle Metoyer decided to take action. Though she’d never met Nkhama, Metoyer, a member of the school’s NAACP chapter, tweeted “#IWalkWithNatasha” and invited other students to join her to walk Nkhama to class. By the time she and her friends showed up outside Nkhama’s next class, on Nov. 11, the hashtag had gone viral— and a crowd of 350, including university teachers andadministrators, hadgatheredto walk withher, chanting “All love, no hate” as they marched. “The outpouring of love made me feel a lot better,” says Nkhama. “I hope people everywhere realize that racism is not okay. The world is hurting, and we need to do something about it.” —SANDRA SOBIERAJ WESTFALL AND CAITLIN KEATING Photographs by MARISSA HYLAND
What should you do if you witness an act of harassment? The Southern Poverty Law Center’s outreach director, Lecia Brooks, says you should first make sure you feel safe. Then stand by the victim’s side and tell the harasser to stop. Report the incident to police and, if possible, film or take a picture of it on your phone to help law enforcement bring the perpetrator to justice. Acts of hate can also be reported at splcenter .org/reporthate

sophomore Natasha Nkhama remembers every staggering word. The psychology major, 19, was headed to neuroscience class on the morning after Election Day when a man with blond hair seemed to deliberately run into her on the busy campus walkway. “He said, ‘No n-----s allowed on the sidewalk,’” recalls Nkhama. “Someone behind me told him that was not okay, but the guy said, ‘I’m just trying to make America great again.’” That her unknown assailant would utter the N-word in one breath and parrot Donald Trump’s presidential campaign slogan in the next shocked Nkhama, who was born in Zambia and moved to Dallas with her family when she was 2. Her Nov. 9 run-in with hate was one of dozens of alleged instances of racial harassment reported nationwide in the wake of Trump’s win

The Gosselins 10Yea Later FROM DIAPERS TO DIVORCE DRAMA, A LOOK BACK AT HOW ONE MOM AND HER 8 KIDS CHANGED REALITY TV
HOW THEY’VE GROWN! Kate with (clockwise from top left) Joel, Aaden, Cara, Alexis, Leah, Hannah and Mady this summer. Inset: in 2008, while still married to Jon Gosselin.
By KATE COYNE

It’s been one decade since a documentary
special introduced viewers to Kate Gosselin, a pediatric nurse, her husband, Jon, an IT specialist, and their eight kids— twins and sextuplets. In the subsequent 10 years, even those who weren’t die-hard viewers learned what transpired as the disintegration of Jon and Kate’s marriage and Kate’s determination to forge ahead as a single mom played out for public consumption on the now-titled Kate Plus 8. The latest season will debut on Nov. 22 on TLC, with an anniversary special looking back at just how much the Gosselins have changed. Here, Kate reflects on some of the more pivotal moments. PEOPLE December 5, 2016
If you received an automated call between August 2011 and August 2012 offering a free cruise in exchange for taking a political and/or public opinion survey, a class action settlement may affect your rights. You may be entitled to up to $500 per call. COURT AUTHORIZED NOTICE OF CLASS ACTION
2007: TOGETHER BUT ALONE “I was mostly on my own—Mady and Cara were in kindergarten, Jon worked full-time. I was basically housebound, but it was also the most control I’ve ever really had, because it was like I was running a daycare. I was basically a shut-in...with plenty of company! ”
2008: VOWS GONE WRONG Kate and Jon renewed their vows after their ninth anniversary; roughly one year later they split amid a tabloid frenzy. “In terms of my life with him, I look at him honestly as two different people. He was once really there, really involved. I can remember those good days without any jaded ugliness.”

A Settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit claiming that Caribbean Cruise Line, Inc., Vacation Ownership Marketing Tours, Inc., and The Berkley Group, Inc. (collectively, “Defendants”) violated a federal law called the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. Defendants deny any wrongdoing. The settlement doesn’t decide who is right, but rather is a compromise to end the lawsuit and avoid the uncertainties and costs associated with a trial. Am I part of the Settlement? You may be a Settlement Class Member if you received a prerecorded or robotic voice telephone call between August 2011 and August 2012 that offered a free cruise in exchange for taking a public opinion and/or political survey. You may have received notice about this case before. The case has settled and you have a right to ﬁle a claim for a share of the Settlement Fund. More information about the calls and the Settlement is available online. More information, including the full class deﬁnition, is in the detailed Long Form Website Notice at www.FreeCruiseCallClassAction.net. What can I get out the settlement? If the Court approves the Settlement, Settlement Class Members who submit valid claims will receive equal shares per call received of the Settlement Fund that Defendants have agreed to create, after payment of expenses and fees. That Settlement Fund will be at least $56,000,000 and at most $76,000,000. The settlement also requires Defendants to take steps to ensure compliance with the TCPA. If you are included, you need to complete a Claim Form available at www.FreeCruiseCallClassAction.net. All Claim Forms must be received by February 1, 2017. What are my rights & options? You can do nothing, submit a Claim Form, comment on or object to any of the Settlement terms, or exclude yourself from the Settlement. If you do nothing or submit a Claim Form, you won’t be able to sue Defendants in a future lawsuit about the claims resolved in the Settlement. If you exclude yourself, you won’t get a payment but you’ll keep your right to sue Defendants on the issues the Settlement resolves. You must contact the Settlement Administrator by mail to exclude yourself. You can also object to the Settlement if you disagree with any of its terms. All Requests for Exclusion and Objections must be received by January 23, 2017. Who represents me? The Court has appointed lawyers from the ﬁrms Edelson PC and Loevy & Loevy to represent you as “Class Counsel.” The lawyers will request to be paid from the Settlement Fund. You can hire your own lawyer, but you’ll need to pay your own legal fees. Gerardo Aranda, Grant Birchmeier, Stephen Parkes, and Regina Stone—class members like you—have been appointed by the Court as the “Class Representatives.” When will the Court approve the settlement? The Court will hold a ﬁnal approval hearing on February 23, 2017, at 9:30 a.m. before Judge Matthew F. Kennelly in Courtroom 2103 of the Dirksen United States Courthouse, 219 S. Dearborn St., Chicago, Illinois 60604. The Court will hear objections, determine if the settlement is fair, and consider Class Counsel’s request for fees and expenses of up to $24,500,000 and incentive awards which will be posted on the settlement website. How do I get more information? This Notice is only a summary of the lawsuit. For more information including the full notice and to ﬁle a claim form, go to www. FreeCruiseCallClassAction.net, contact the claims administrator at 1-844-343-1477 or Caribbean Cruise Line Class Action Administrator, P.O. Box 43435, Providence, RI 02940-3435, or call Class Counsel at 1-866-354-3015. By Order of the Court Dated: October 5, 2016
2004: A FULL HOUSE “Logistics, no sleep, a nightmare,” Kate recalls of first bringing home her newborn sextuplets. “By the time you got the last one bundled up to go out, the first ones were screaming because they were sweating to death!”
2009: END OF AN ERA The announcement of the split was made on an episode of the show. Says Kate: “My utmost concern has always been what my kids would see and hear. It was about us having the ability to tell it from our point of view, on our show, rather than having the tabloids do it for us. Contrary to what others might say, I think it was dealt with very sensitively.”
2009: A FINAL FAMILY PHOTO Shortly before the split became official, Kate and Jon celebrated the sextuplets’ 5th birthday. “I insisted upon that photo, because I knew it would be our last family photo ever. I wanted it for the kids. It’s hard for me to look at, but I think that was also one of the first times I felt sure we’d be okay. I wasn’t sure how, and I was scared, but I still knew it’d be okay.”
2016: MORE CHANGES AHEAD Kate continues to marvel at how her brood has grown: “In terms of their maturity, the way they’ll talk to me, their abilities now—it is mind-blowing.” Her son Collin (inset) is currently enrolled in a school helping him with his special needs. “I don’t know what the road ahead entails, but I’m very happy with the care that he’s getting. As a mom, when you can’t give your kids what they need, it’s a huge comfort to find people who can.”

Breaking Barriers THE STAR OF ABC’S SPEECHLESSOPENS UP ABOUT WORKING AND THRIVING WITH CEREBRAL PALSY By BRITTANY KING
‘You control your own destiny by believing in yourself’
December 5, 2016 PEOPLE

1. “We all have different ability levels,” says Fowler (at age 5 in 2003). 2. “Micah teaches me about patience and laughter,” says his TV mom, Minnie Driver (with the Speechless cast).
or Micah Fowler, official adulthood began with a bang.“IfoundoutIbooked the role of JJ on my 18th birthday,” the actor says of scoring one of the leading roles on ABC’s breakout new comedy Speechless. “Best birthday present ever!” Making the moment even sweeter is the fact that Fowler’s professional accomplishment will leave a lasting legacy. The actor, who has cerebral palsy—a disorder characterized by the loss of motor function that can be caused by brain damage at birth—is breaking new ground by depicting the disorder onscreen. “Actors with disabilities face typecasting and a lack of auditioning opportunities, but I don’t let this deﬁne me,” he says. “I see those things as challenges and not barriers.” Raised in Barnegat Township, N.J., Fowler began acting in theater at age 5 and went on to appear on children’s television shows like Sesame Street and in the ﬁlm Labor Day,despite his symptoms, which include muscle weakness, spasticity, rigid legs and occasional difﬁculties in communication. (Unlike his character onSpeechless,however, Fowler is able to speak without any help.) Landing on a major network sitcom has been a “groundbreaking” experience, he says. In the future the avidStar Wars fan dreams of playing a villain in that franchise and hopes to inspire a new generation of actors with special needs. “When following your dreams, don’t set limits,” he advises. “Chase them even when it looks impossible.Youcontrolyourown destiny by believing in yourself.”

Meet Our Baby Girl! THE ACTRESS AND HER HUSBAND, KEVIN, INTRODUCE THEIR NEWLY ADOPTED DAUGHTER “Putting her on my chest and getting to lie there with her, I just felt so full of joy,” says Rue, who FaceTimed Talulah with Price to introduce her to her new sister. “It was the most precious and heartwarming moment for me as a mom to be holding one daughter and looking at the other one and just feeling like my heart was finally whole.” Now the secondtime parents are once again soldiering through sleepless nights and savoring all of Adelaide’s milestones. “She’s doing great at tummy time and is starting to smile and coo,” gushes Rue. “Even through the exhaustion, being so content and at peace is a really wonderful feeling.” And as Adelaide grows up, her parents plan to always have her adoption “be a part of our story as a family,” says Rue. “We want Addie to know she was loved so much by everyone.” —MELODY CHIU
EVEN BEFORE SARA RUE AND HER HUSBAND, Kevin Price, got engaged, the couple knew they wanted to adopt a child together one day. “It’s just something that felt right to both of us,” says the Impastor actress, who welcomed their first daughter, 3-year-old Talulah, in 2013. After struggling to conceive a second child naturally, Rue, 37, and her husband, 41, decided to complete their family by adopting. “We just wanted another child, and as long as we were her mom and dad and would get to raise her with the same values and warmth and fun and kindness that we have been able to raise Talulah with, it really didn’t matter where she came from,” says the star. Opting for an open adoption, Rue accompanied Adelaide’s birth mother to all doctor’s appointments and was the first person to hold Adelaide at the hospital.

Black Pepper Biscuits with Mango Jam THE AUTHOR OF THE MY TWO SOUTHS COOKBOOK SAYS THIS RECIPE ‘WARMS MY HEART AS WELL AS MY TASTE BUDS’
Photograph by Jennifer Causey
4 large firm-ripe mangoes, peeled, pitted and cubed (about 4 cups) 2 1⁄ 2 cups fine granulated cane sugar 4 tsp. lemon zest plus 6 tbsp. fresh juice (from 2 lemons) 1 tbsp. finely chopped ginger 1⁄ 4 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces 2 cups self-rising flour, sifted, plus more for dusting work surface 2 tsp. coarsely ground black peppercorns 3⁄ 4 cup whole buttermilk 2 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted Pinch of kosher salt 1. To prepare the jam, combine mangoes, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice and ginger in a large (4-quart) heavybottomed saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring often. Reduce to medium-low, and cook, stirring often, until mixture appears glossy and thickened, 45 to 60 minutes. Pour jam into a heatproof bowl, and cool
completely, about 1 hour. (Store jam in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.) 2. To prepare the biscuits, preheat oven to 450°. Cut cold butter pieces into sifted flour in a large bowl, using a pastry blender or your fingertips, until crumbly. Sprinkle pepper over flour mixture. 3. Add buttermilk, stirring with a fork until a shaggy dough is formed. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface, and knead lightly, 3 or 4 times. Pat or roll dough to a 3⁄4-inch thickness. Cut dough with a 23⁄4-inch round cutter, patting or rerolling scraps, if necessary, to make 8 biscuits. 4. Place biscuits, with sides touching (this will help them rise), in a greased 9-inch cast-iron skillet. Bake in oven until golden brown, about 16 minutes. Remove from oven; brush biscuits with melted butter, and sprinkle with salt. Serve with reserved mango jam. Serves: 8 Active time: 35 minutes Total time: 1 hour, 40 minutes

2 cups ground gingersnap cookies 1 tbsp. cornstarch 1⁄ 8 tsp. cayenne pepper (optional) 6 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted 1 lb. plus 2 oz. cream cheese, softened 3⁄ 4 cup packed light brown sugar 11⁄ 4 cup canned pumpkin puree 2 tsp. instant espresso granules 1⁄ 2 tsp. kosher salt 1⁄ 2 tsp. ground cinnamon 2 large eggs plus 1 large egg yolk 1. Preheat oven to 375°. Stir cookie crumbs, cornstarch
and cayenne in a bowl. Add butter, and stir until evenly incorporated. Press mixture into the bottom of a greased 9-inch springform pan and up the sides as far as you’re able. Bake until golden, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven, and set aside. Reduce oven to 325°. 2. Beat cream cheese and brown sugar with a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment on medium speed until very smooth, about 4 minutes, stopping to scrape sides of bowl several times. Add pumpkin, espresso, salt and cinnamon, and beat until combined. Add the eggs and egg yolk, 1 at a time, beating until just
incorporated after each addition. Do not overmix. 3. Pour filling into prepared crust. Wrap the outside of the pan with foil, and place in a roasting pan. Pour hot water into roasting pan, filling to halfway up the side of the springform pan. 4. Bake in water bath until the filling is almost set, 80 to 90 minutes. The center will barely move when pan is touched. Remove from oven, and cool in water bath 10 minutes. Remove from bath, and chill, uncovered, 2 hours to overnight. Top with more cookie crumbs, if desired. Makes: One 9-inch cake Active time: 30 minutes Total time: 2 hours, plus chilling

Total Calories: C : 1,790 The Verdict Beauvais does a “fantastic job” getting protein into her daily diet, says Atlanta-based dietitian Marisa Moore. “It’s essential for building and maintaining lean muscle mass,” she explains. And by adding berries to Greek yogurt, the TV host gets “a sweet boost of fiber, vitamin C and other skinnourishing antioxidants.” Beauvais also gets props for including Brussels sprouts—“they’re full of phytonutrients, which may help fight certain cancers,” says Moore. But, for dessert, the dietitian recommends swapping the cookies for a small piece of heart-healthy dark chocolate. Byy Julie Mazziotta aand Aili Nahas

THE ACTOR, 62, RETURNS FOR SEASON 2 OF CRACKLE’S THE guilty pleasure ART OF MORE Last I think watching Scandal is
a guilty pleasure. It’s not something I would usually watch, but I do anyway. It’s kind of delicious.
Last time I was moved to tears This is such a plug, but it’s the truth. Every time I tell someone the story of my movie A Dog’s Purpose [out Jan. 27], my eyes start welling, and I get choked up. The story just gets me. It’s like Old Yeller without the tragic ending. It’s so beautiful.
Last class I took I take classes for [outdoor] cycling. I ran for 40 years, and it got hard on the joints, so I started cycling and found I loved it. I’ll ride maybe 100 miles a week. Every time I get on my bike, I feel like I’m 12 years old again.
Last time I danced About 30 minutes ago in my living room. I had the house to myself. It was Tom Petty’s “Listen to Her Heart,” and I was actually playing [guitar] and dancing at the same time. No one was watching, but in my mind I was in front of 50,000 people. Reported by Julie Jordan
