Definitely the staycation— sleeping in and watching a relaxing movie with some popcorn in bed. —BRIANNE TRACY

Correction In the Sept. 25 issue, we mischaracterized the event Samuel L. Jackson took part in, “EIF Presents: XQ Super School Live.” It was a television special inviting the public to reenvision high school education, not a fund-raiser. Also, in Passages, we ran an incorrect photo of actor Blake Heron, who died Sept. 8. Here is Heron in the 1996 ﬁlm Shiloh. People regrets the errors.

The Big Little Lies star had quite the highhfashion moment, from her custom Calvin in Klein by Appointment gown (featuring over 3,700 crystals on the rope detail of the neckline) and pink satin sandals with asymmetrical embellished straps to her Harry Winston jewels worth more than $2 million.

As soon as the This Is Us star tried on her Carolina Herrera ball gown, “she knew it was perfect,” says her stylist Erica Cloud. “She’s a girlie-girl but also supermodern, and this gown is both of those things!” As for her jewelry, she chose Jennifer Meyer pieces— plus her new engagement ring, of course.
Getting the Big Little Lies star’s Ralph Lauren Collection (paired with Alexis Bittar jewels) look was a leap of faith, says stylist Ilaria Urbinati: “She’s been on a boat shooting a movie for weeks, so I asked to make this look to her measurements, then we held our breath—and it ﬁt perfectly!”
TRACEE ELLIS ROSS
The Chanel Haute Couture dress the Black-ish actress chose was incredibly heavy, says stylist Karla Welch, because it was a true work of art—it featured about 170,000 crystal ﬂowers, silver mirrors and glass beads. Irene Neuwirth earrings and Roger Vivier mules completed this chic ensemble.
“This particular dress felt quite magical,” the Big Little Lies actress said of her rainbow feather Dior Haute Couture creation. “It was kind of fairy-like, so I thought, ‘Go for it!’” To add to the dreaminess, she layered nearly $1 million worth of Tiffany & Co. jewelry on top.
The presenter’s embroidered scarlet Naeem Khan gown, featuring a jaw-dropping plunging neckline, was apparently so comfortable that she did a pull-up in it! (The proof is on Instagram.) Narcisa Pheres earrings gave the look even more shine.

Randy says that he eventually told Janet, “You’ve got to move in with me or I’m going to go over there, and there’s going to be hell.” (Lawyers for Al Mana have responded with the statement: “Mr. Al Mana is not going to dignify these particular and deeply hurtful allegations with a response. The breakdown of his marriage to Janet Jackson is a cause of great sadness to Mr. Al Mana, and it is the well-being and privacy of their son Eissa that remains his sole focus.”) Randy, who has

As for speculation that the couple split over religious differences (Al Mana is reportedly Muslim, and Janet is Christian), Randy says that’s not the case. “It’s a personal issue that he needs help with.” In the meantime Janet, who he says “wants Eissa to have a mother and a father,” is trying to continue doing what she loves. “This tour almost didn’t happen,” says Randy, “but by the grace of God we’re here.” —JANINE RUBENSTEIN

But just three months after son Eissa arrived on Jan. 3, Jackson announced her marriage was over—and the tour was back on. Still, it wasn’t that easy to get back to business. During her song “What About,” Jackson broke down in tears onstage. “There’s a lot of pain.

The America’s Got Talent judge, 44, spent time with racer Louis Hamilton at the Harper’s Bazaar Icons party Sept. 8 but showed up solo to the Emmys the next weekend. Klum, who shares four kids with ex-husband Seal, plans to use the alone time to focus on her children.

The Yale School of Drama grad also saw her stage background come into play. “I come from the theater, where there is color-blind casting,” Lathan, 46, says. “One of the things I loved about my Assassin character is that in the books she’s white. It’s so cool that they hired an African-American woman.” That’s not the only reason she was excited about the role: “I’m really interested in movies that start to reflect the world that we live in.” —D.R.F. with reporting by Liam Berry

Harry Dean Stanton Dies at 91 Nearly 60 when he became a star, the actor was unforgettable for decades, in everything from Alien to Big Love Like his friends Bob Dylan and the late Sam Shepard, actor Harry Dean Stanton, who died at 91 on Sept. 15 in L.A., always seemed like an iconic reminder of some lost, forlorn America—a filling station along an empty highway. Sharp-featured and lean, he perhaps found his greatest success as Roman Grant, the mean polygamist patriarch on HBO’s Big Love, but he gave memorable performances— gritty, sly, often mysterious—in more than 100 movies (Alien, The Green Mile, Pretty in Pink, Repo Man) and dozens of TV shows (including David Lynch’s recent Twin Peaks: The Return). The Kentucky native didn’t become famous until he was in his late 50s (long after his old roommate Jack Nicholson had) in the 1984 art-house film Paris, Texas. (One of his final projects, Lucky, is out Sept. 29.) He may have been, as he joked, “a late bloomer,” but Stanton was also so distinctive he became a cult favorite. Never married—he had a relationship with actress Rebecca De Mornay in the 1980s—he said in a 2013 interview that a bigger, more conventional career would have been nice. But, “in the end, you end up accepting everything in your life—suffering, horror, love, loss, hate— all of it. It’s all a movie anyway.” —TOM GLIATTO PEOPLE October 2, 2017

Tennis, everyone? King (Stone) goes to court against sexist Riggs (Carell).
Emma Stone and Steve Carell face off in a smart entertainment about a legendary match COMEDY-DRAMA “Male chauvinist pig” isn’t a phrase you hear anymore, but in 1973 Bobby Riggs (Carell), a former tennis champ settled into a dull middle age, overnight became the most notorious one in all of America—he made it his calling card in challenging the great Billie Jean King (Stone) to the so-called Battle of the Sexes, a match that (Riggs claimed) would settle whether a woman could ever play as well as a man. The event, televised to a global audience from the Houston Astrodome, was a ridiculous spectacle—the opponents were carried onto the court like pharaohs—made ever larger by Riggs’s cheerfully ruthless skill at media topspin. To King, though, the stakes were dead-serious: It was time to put an end to all this sexist racket. The performances, along with the ﬁlm, are sharp, intelligent and a lot of fun.(Sept. 22, PG-13)

Edie Falco takes center stage in a famous court case DRAMA This new eight-episode series applies classic L&O formatâ€”including that betweenscenes TCHWUNK-eh! that signiďŹ es one more slow turn of the wheels of justiceâ€”to the notorious 1989 doublehomicide case. The result, which emphasizes the police and legal teams as they coolly scrutinize Lyle and Erik Menendezâ€™s motives and actions, is gripping and perfectly paced. Itâ€™s the least sensational (and best) of the multiple attempts to tell this lurid story. Edie Falco, crowned with a mop of blonde curls as defense attorney Leslie Abramson, gives an appropriately take-charge performance. (NBC, Sept. 26, 10 p.m.)
DRAMA Jake Gyllenhaal plays Jeff Bauman, the 27-year-old Costco worker who lost his legs in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing: He had stationed himself at the ďŹ nish line to cheer on his girlfriend Erin (Orphan Blackâ€™s Tatiana Maslany). Stronger isnâ€™t just about his recovery but his gradual discovery of a new inner strength and maturity. This seems a bit unfair dramatically, as if it werenâ€™t enough for Bauman, whose suffering is depicted with wince-inducing effectiveness, to live and walkâ€”he needs to wind up morally improved. Gyllenhaal brings grueling physical commitment and broiling anguish to the part. For more on Jake Gyllenhaal, see page 65. (Sept. 22, R)

When East met Westâ€” brieflyâ€”in the palace
Abdul Karim (Ali Fazal), a 24-year-old Muslim clerk, was sent from India to London in 1887 to add an exotic touchâ€”and a handsome reminder of empireâ€”to a ceremonial event before the aging Queen Victoria (Judi Dench). She was captivated by him. He became a friend, conďŹ dant and adviser (both political and spiritual). To some degree an infatuation, he may also have been an unconscious substitute for her disappointing son Bertie (Eddie Izzard). Directed by Stephen Frears (The Queen), this is a delicate, autumnal story, with a touching performance by Dench. Itâ€™s also a more rewarding ďŹ lm, by the way, than her last outing as Victoria, 1997â€™s Mrs. Brown. (In limited release Sept. 22, PG-13)

Letâ€™s say, then, that Michael (Ted Danson), designer and overseer of this corner of eternity, is compelled to reboot the projectâ€”and then reboot the reboot.

Is the singer finally starting to win her battle with the fame monster?

Royal Dad, Future King THE FATHER OF 2 (WITH NO. 3 ON THE WAY!) BEGINS A NEW CHAPTER AT HOME AND ON HIS ROAD TO THE THRONE By SIMON PERRY

pupils serenaded the royal dad with Elton John’s “Your Song.” “[William] said he’s never been given an avocado before. He said he’d take it to her and see what happens.” To watch William work a crowd is to observe a master class at charm school taught by Prince Charming himself: Combining a politician’s gift for connecting with everyday people and a movie star’s magnetic charisma, the 35-year-old son of Prince Charles and Princess Diana is at ease with nervous preschoolers, amiable nursing home patients and everyone in between. At a royal function last year, Jonny Benjamin, a mental health activist who campaigns for awareness of suicide among young men, watched in amazement as William smoothly balanced competing demands. “He had a photographer in one ear saying, ‘William, can you angle your face a bit more?’ And in the other he had his assistant saying, ‘William, you’ve got two minutes here’—and he managed to carry on his conversation with me naturally,” recalls Benjamin. “I was impressed at how he stayed focused and calm despite all of the stuff going on around him.” Of course, unlike Kate—who often seems nervous during public outings in contrast to her conﬁdent husband—William has had a lifetime to train for the job. In his grandmother Queen Elizabeth he also has the ultimate “role model,” as he described her last year. The Q Queeen’s “dutyy and her y

William’s Fight Against the ‘Stiff Upper Lip’

Along with Kate and Harry, William has focused a formidable spotlight on often stigmatized mental health issues through their charity campaign Heads Together, which will promote World Mental Health Day on Oct. 10. “There may be a time and a place for the ‘stiff upper lip,’ but not at the expense of your health,” he said earlier this year. In previous generations,“if you were anxious, it’s because you were weak. If you couldn’t cope with whatever life threw at you, it’s because you were failing. Successful, strong people don’t suffer like that, do they? But of course— we all do.”
service, her tolerance, her commitment to others have all been incredibly important to me, and it’s been a real guiding example of just what a good monarch could be,” he told the BBC. “It’s been incredibly insightful for me growing up watching her leadership.” Since marking her 91st birthday in April—and since the official retirement of her 96-year-old husband, Prince Philip, in August— William has steadily assumed more of her duties. “She has taken a particular interest in him,” says historian Robert Lacey, a consultant to the hit Netflix series The Crown. Although the Queen and her direct heir, Prince Charles, 68, “have had a prickly relationship at times,” notes Lacey, she and William have always enjoyed “a special closeness. When William became a teenager, she would have him at Windsor Castle and would open the state boxes and guide him through the papers. It was William’s constitutional education.” For his emotional education he had the example of his mother, whose death when he was 15 has inspired much of his public work today, including his focus on mental health (see box). “People can see his empathy and his compassion, which is informed by his experience but also by his years as a man,” says one of Diana’s closest friends, Julia Samuel,
Keeping Their Kids Close William and Kate have made a point of taking their children with them overseas when they can, most recently on a tour of Poland and Germany in July.

founding patron of the charity Child Bereavement U.K. A former Palace aide says that William’s personal, hands-on style “is kind of an inheritance from Diana and is an aspect of the modern monarchy with which the Queen is perfectly comfortable.” The shift in duties means leaving a job that he loved—as an air-ambulance pilot—and settling his family in Kensington Palace rather than Anmer Hall, the country home where William and Kate had previously been raising 4-year-old Prince George and 2-year-old Princess Charlotte. Those close to the couple have said that Kate has felt “trapped” in London amid the bustle of photographers and tourists. “Kensington Palace has a slightly unhappy history of royal occupants,” says Lacey, pointing to the marital struggles of the Queen’s sister Princess Margaret and her husband, Lord Snowdon, as well as Charles and Diana. But the current generation may be better prepared, fortiﬁed by the tight bond between William and his brother Prince Harry, 33, who also lives in the Kensington Palace compound. “The unit of Harry and William, which now embraces Kate, seems to operate with a closeness that we have never seen before,” says Lacey.

Modern Dad William (with George in Australia in 2014 and with Charlotte in Canada in 2016) has put his paternal bond on display. “He will be a touchy-feely monarch,” says royal historian Ingrid Seward. “He will be more accessible— he has to be for the modern age.

With Kate homebound because of her battle with hyperemesis gravidarum, or acute pregnancy illness, William has taken the lead—and unlike the Queen, who regretted putting her duty ahead of her family as a young mother, William has said his priorities are clear: “I want to bring my children up as good people with the idea of service and duty...but if I can’t give my time to my children as well, then I worry about their future.” In private, “there’s a lot of support for each other and a lot of love,” Benjamin says of William and Kate. “They’ll slip in a joke about Prince George ‘People misbehaving or being tricky. see how They recognize that [their authentic children] are growing up and in a challenging time, because of social media and heartfelt he is.

It takes a lot to rattle Jake
Gyllenhaal, but as he sat at an Italian restaurant in Boston waiting to meet Jeff Bauman, the real-life subject of his new movie Stronger, the actor felt a wave of anxiety about living up to the part. “Meeting Jeff was probably one of the most intimidating things I’ve done in my life,” he says. The ﬁlm—which follows Bauman’s recovery after he lost his legs in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing—is the latest in a string of challenging roles for Gyllenhaal, 36. “I really wanted to go back and devote myself to my work,” he says of his conscious shift from heartthrob to (unusually good-looking) character actor in critical hits such as Nightcrawler and Nocturnal Animals. The L.A. native also stepped back from the spotlight after high-proﬁle relationships in his 20s (including with Kirsten Dunst, Reese Witherspoon and Taylor Swift). Now he’s ready to move into the next phase of his life. “I want to continue becoming more of an adult than I already am,” he says. “Hopefully with a family of my own.”
Taking Control “I want to work with people who want to work with me,” says Gyllenhaal. “Not go chase after the people who everybody thinks are cool.”

and action films to focus on character-based roles. How did you make that decision?
Why were you so nervous about meeting Jeff and telling his story?
I knew nothing I was going to do was going to come close to what he experienced. I just knew I was going to try as hard as I could. What he went through, what he goes through every day and who he has became as a result of that event—it’s beyond words. To try to portray that, I feel grateful, but I also felt a sense of pressure. I thought he was going to be like, “Can this guy do it?” Was there anything in your own life that you channeled to prepare?
I drew upon his experience more than I ever have in any other movie. Jeff and I have a lot of similarities, though, like the fact that both of our parents are divorced. I have a crazy family, he has a crazy family. But I think the hardest thing was realizing my own weaknesses.

I just wanted to do the things that I love. People always tell you, “You’ve got to get higher; you’ve got to do more.” I was in that mode for a while. Particularly being blessed to be able to work from such a young age, I got caught in that idea. But I started to realize that all the people I respect are the people who just follow their own voice, even if a lot of people don’t follow along initially. There were a number of people who said when I decided to do Brokeback Mountain, “Oh, you should never do that movie.” I don’t work with people who would say that to me. What’s been your biggest challenge?
Being true to myself. It can become very, very blurry when there are a lot of opinions. I try to maintain that compass within myself. You’ve experienced the celebrity spotlight, but lately it seems like you’ve been lying low. Do you value your private life more at this age?
My life and my family have always been important to me, so sometimes it is a conscious decision. It’s really nice to be away from all the noise and be with the people who I know love me. I spend a lot of time talking to people who know who I am, so it’s nice just to be with people who really don’t care—and there are a lot of people who don’t care! I believe as an actor, it’s better to know a little less [about our personal lives] because we play characters. Still, do you ever get annoyed by rumors about your love life?
No. I think everybody knows what is true. Those

Jeff Bauman was waiting for his girlfriend Erin Hurley at the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon when terrorist bombs exploded nearby, killing three people and wounding nearly 250. Bauman, 33, who lost both legs, became a symbol of the day’s horror and heroism in a photo (above) that showed Carlos Arredondo, Devin Wang and EMT Paul Mitchell racing him to medical help. Bauman helped police identify one of the killers from his hospital bed. “Reliving the hospital is insanely hard,” Bauman says of watching the film now. “It made me cry.” Recovery has been tough physically and emotionally. He and Erin wed and had a daughter but divorced this year. With prosthetics, Bauman has proudly walked the red carpet at premieres. “It’s great to see my progression,” he says. “A year ago I was using a cane, so every year it gets easier.”

Holly learned the value of self-care. â€œScheduling time for myself made me a better caregiver.â€?
HOLLY ROBINSON PEETE
REAL STRENGTH Actress Holly Robinson Peete has starred in many roles in her life, both on-screen and off. But the one she’s most proud of is being a family caregiver.
GET PREPARED TO CARE AARP provides the support you need, so you can focus on the care of your loved ones. 1. Start the Conversation Many people wait until a crisis before they talk about their values, health care preferences, or ﬁnancial details. If you wait until something happens, big decisions may be driven by assumptions.
3. Form Your Team No one should approach the responsibilities of caregiving alone. While family members are likely sources of support, friends, colleagues, and religious organizations are resources, too.
2. Make a Plan Putting together a family caregiving plan will help you respond more quickly and effectively should the need arise. It can also provide some peace of mind.
4. Care For Yourself Keeping up your energy and maintaining your health are critical. It’s just as important to make a plan to take care of yourself as it is to create a caregiving plan for others.
TELEVISION STAR. PRO FOOTBALL
wife. Mother of four. Holly Robinson Peete has embraced many titles in her life. But on top of a steady stream of acting gigs, moving from city to city for her husband’s career, and having a full house, Holly also took on another very important and timedemanding job: being a caregiver. First, Holly became her father’s caregiver at 19, when he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. “I was so young, starting off a new life in college, not knowing what the disease even was.” Over the next decade, she learned everything she could and managed her dad’s care, all while establishing her career, getting married, and starting a family. In 2000, Holly received another “swift kick in the gut.” Her three-year-old son RJ was diagnosed with autism. “That’s also when my dad started to develop dementia,” she explains, “so that really took the caregiving piece to another level.”
With her son, Rodney Peete Jr., and her dad, Matthew Robinson. “When people you really love need your care, you don’t hesitate. You just do it,” she says.
With such a full plate, it was becoming difﬁcult for Holly to ﬁnd time for herself while caring for her father, her son, and the rest of her family. Talking to other family caregivers really helped her recognize the need to focus on herself ﬁrst. “They’d say, ‘If you crumble, then everything crumbles.’” Drawing on support from her husband and friends, she found ways to make time for self-care, including waking up before everyone else to get quiet time and some exercise. “It helps me stay healthy and clearheaded for the day ahead,” she says. Now, Holly is using her overall experience to help others facing a Parkinson’s or autism diagnosis with her HollyRod Foundation. Through the organization, she pays it forward, sharing self-care tactics like her morning routine, the importance of making time for friends, and eating healthy. The biggest piece of advice she passes on to other caregivers? Give yourself credit. “There are going to be days when you feel like you dropped the ball, or you couldn’t do everything, but don’t beat yourself up about it. Instead, realize how hard you’re working and pat yourself on the back.”

I hadn’t tucked them into bed on a weeknight in three years.” At the same time, working in the “snake pit” of cable news wasn’t her calling. “I’m not a political animal, and I never have been,” she says. “The subject matter was not true to my soul.” With her contract nearing its end, Kelly, 46, started weighing her options. “It was time to do a gut check to make sure I was happy and doing what I’m supposed to,” she says. “The answer was clearly no. It was time to make a change.” 74

Now Kelly, who gained prominence when she tangled with Donald Trump after hosting the ﬁrst GOP presidential debate, has a new morning talk show on NBC: Megyn Kelly Today, premiering Sept. 25 at 9 a.m. And she couldn’t be happier. “I go home at the end of the day with a smile on my face, and I think, ‘This is what I’m supposed to be doing.’ Not only does it allow me to see my children grow up, but also I’m doing the job I’ve always wanted.”
Family First “My kids were missing me, and I was missing them,” says Kelly. “Those first weeks I was home, we were all basking in the glow.”
During her 13 years at Fox, the corporate lawyer
turned journalist worked her way up the ladder. In 2010 she began hosting her own two-hour afternoon show, America Live, before landing The Kelly File in 2013. The hours were long and late, and the rigorous schedule wasn’t compatible with raising three young children. “I loved my show, but I didn’t lovethefactthatIwasmissingallofit,”shesays.“It wassoul-crushing.”Herlifebecameevenmorechaotic during the 2016 presidential election, when Trump began attacking her on Twitter. “I just wanted it to stop,” she said at the time. (Following a private meeting to resolve the conﬂict in April, Kelly says they are now on good terms.) But three months after the Trump ordeal, Kelly’s boss, Fox News chief Roger Ailes, resigned amid sexual harassment accusations. Kelly, though not one of the original accusers, opened up with her own accounts, detailing multiple incidents with Ailes in her memoir Settle for More. She wrote, “My daughter, who deserved tohaveher motherstandupand say,‘Thismanwill not do this to another woman at Fox News. Ever.’” Still, it wasn’t easy saying goodbye to the network where she says she “sort of grew up.” “I have so many friends there that I care deeply about,” she says. The transition also hasn’t been without its bumps in the road. Days before it was revealed Kelly would take over the 9 a.m. hour, Tamron Hall, who had previously held down the time slot with Al Roker,

announced she was leaving—sources say Hall was furious over losing the time slot to Kelly.Kelly made headlines again when one of her ﬁrst interviews for NBC, on her Sunday night show, was with far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who claims the massacre at Sandy Hook was a hoax.“Criticism is never enjoyable, but it’s a reality with which all reporters must deal, especially in a polarized political environment,” says Kelly. “I continue to believe that the Jones piece was important journalism and was gratiﬁed to see the positive response once it aired.” Despite the rockier moments, Kelly can’t contain her excitement about joining NBC and all the changes it will bring. “We’re moving into the businessofhumanconnectionandintoashowthatuplifts people,” she says. The new job also comes with a more relaxed schedule and weekend nights free. “It’s amazing,” says Brunt, 46. “Having her home has transformed the household. Now we can have dinner together as a family and date nights during the week.” Kelly smiles and says, “I feel less stressed and less distant from the things that matter to me—my husband and my children,” she says. “My life.”

THESE WOMEN WANT TO SAVE YOUR LIFE. BY SAVING YOUR SKIN. Melanoma is one of the most common forms of cancer in the United States. Most cases are related to sun UV-induced damage to the skin. And nearly 10,000 people in the U.S. are expected to die of melanoma in 2017. But these ﬁve scientists are working to change all that. MRA, the largest non-proﬁt funder of melanoma research, has granted these women a Team Science Award for Women in Scientiﬁc Research to advance melanoma detection and treatment. The three-year research project is powered by the brilliance of ﬁve female scientists and funded by L’Oréal Paris.
Since 2013, L’Oréal Paris has committed a total of $1.5 million to MRA research. With your help we will defeat melanoma. Learn more about melanoma prevention and support life-saving research by visiting itsthatworthit.org. And make every day an SPF day — rain or shine. DR. SCHUCHTER
Judi Dench is a woman of surprises. At 82, she carries a ﬁdget spinner in her purse (a gift from her grandson). She has tried rapping and has at least one tattoo (it reads “carpe diem,” and it’s on her right wrist—she got it when she turned 81). And she’s the owner of a goldﬁsh named Lazarus, whom she insists she once brought back to life after he went belly up in his tank. “I blew into his mouth, because he had his mouth open, and he was gasping a bit,” Dench explains, adding, “Lazarus is over 17—goldﬁshes can live a long time.” If Lazarus takes after his mistress, he’s only getting started. Dench—who stars as the title monarch in the movie Victoria & Abdul—is entirely uninterested in slowing down. “Don’t say the word r-e-t-i-r-e,” she warns, allowing that hanging it up is all right for some:
The Veteran “I want to learn something new every day,” says Dench (in Toronto on Sept. 12).

“Daniel Day-Lewis has just retired. I expect he’ll make shoes again. It’s wonderful to do that.” But for Dench, who became globally famous in her 60s, acting is an unquenchable passion, even if macular degeneration means she memorizes her lines aided by a script reader. Yet even an Academy Award hasn’t cured her of nerves. “It all frightens me,” she says. “The day I’m not frightened, that’s when I’m going to get really worried.” Sixty years ago Judith Olivia Dench debuted as Ophelia in an Old Vic Company production ofHamlet. Born in York, she was raised by theater-loving parents—her father, a doctor, sometimes acted in local plays, and her mother sewed costumes. Dench and
her two brothers loved it too. So she went to drama school, being “too young and much too dumb” to “know what the road’s like.” Starting in the ’50s, she worked steadily in British theater and TV and was named a dame by the Queen in 1988. Then mogul Harvey Weinstein decided that the 1997 TV production Mrs. Brown—the ﬁrst time Dench played Queen Victoria—should be released as a movie instead. That, her Oscar for Shakespeare in Love and her role as M in the James Bond movies made her a worldwide star. She joked that she had Weinstein’s name tattooed on her rump in thanks. Work and her Quaker faith are what truly sustain her. In 2001 she lost her husband, actor Michael Williams, father of her actress daughter Finty, to lung cancer. “Grief produces incredible energy,” she says. “Don’t indulge grief—use it.” So she has. Next she’ll appear in Murder on the Orient Express, directed by her friend Kenneth Branagh, and there’s a TV project with pals Maggie Smith, Eileen Atkins and Joan Plowright aptly called There’s Nothing Like a Dame. “With any luck,” she hopes to keep acting for the next decade, when not at home in the English countryside with her dog, a “visiting cat” and venerable, lucky Lazarus. “I never know,” she says of what part she’ll play next. “I’ll just wait for somebody to ask me. And if it’s something different, then that’s heaven.”
In 1887 Queen Victoria befriended Abdul Karim, a 24-year-old Indian Muslim servant. Karim (played by Ali Fazal in Victoria & Abdul, above left, and in real life with Victoria in 1890) became the ruler’s “munshi” (teacher), even teaching her Urdu. The relationship inspired racist jealousy, and when Victoria died in 1901 at 81, her son Edward VII had her letters to Karim destroyed. “It was a real friendship,” says Shrabani Basu, on whose book the movie is based. “Victoria was ahead of her time.”

David Meza was expecting a child with girlfriend Taylor Langston (top) and sleeping with Jake Merendino (right). “David found ways not to be seen in public with Jake,” says a friend.
DEADLY LOVE TRIANGLE
A KILLER’S DOUBLE LIFE EXPOSED
Male escort David Meza seduced millionaire Jake Merendino then murdered him for cash to set up his other life—with his pregnant girlfriend By C H R I S T I N E P E L I S E K
October 2, 2017 PEOPLE
ake Merendino seemed to be living the American dream. The 51-year-old Texas millionaire had just purchased a luxury condo in Rosarito, Mexico, and was planning to celebrate his good fortune with expensive champagne at a romantic restaurant alongside his 23-year-old boyfriend, David Meza. So when Mexican police found Merendino’s body at the bottom of a ravine with more than 20 stab wounds and his throat cut just two days later, on May 2, 2015, his family was at a loss as to how a seemingly charmed life could have ended so brutally. “He was the kind of guy who would do anything for you,” says his cousin Bud Merendino. “We couldn’t think of anyone who would want to hurt him.” Police didn’t have to look far to ﬁnd out. Federal authorities arrested
Merendino’s boyfriend Meza for the murder, alleging he killed his lover so he could inherit his $3 million estate, including the new $273,000 oceanfront condo. Their investigation further uncovered that Meza was living a shocking double life—and had a pregnant girlfriend at home. In February that girlfriend, Taylor Langston, pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge for lying to authorities about Meza’s whereabouts on the night of the murder; she is serving a 21-month sentence. Her plea helped a San Diego jury convict Meza in May of Merendino’s murder. Though Meza maintains his innocence and his attorneys argued there was no physical evidence linking Meza to the crime, he is expected to be sentenced Oct. 23.
(MUG SHOT) U.S. ATTORNEY’S OFFICE; (WILL) GALVESTON PUBLIC RECORDS
Those closest to Merendino say the Beaumont,
Texas, millionaire’s generosity and trusting nature made him an easy mark. Adopted as a child, he used the vast fortune he inherited from his late parents, both Exxon Mobil employees, to enjoy life and lavish gifts on his friends and family. He met Meza when he hired him as an escort through an online ad while vacationing in San Diego in June 2013—and was smitten by the “adventurous, young sports fan” who went by the porn name Mario Romo. “He bought him sports cars and motorcycles,” says Merendino’s pal Donna Armani Pineda. “David didn’t want for anything.” It seems Meza wanted more. In the months before the murder Merendino made Meza the beneﬁciary of his condo and wrote up a will on hotel letterhead in December 2014 leaving him his vast fortune. “David didn’t just want a new car,” says Bud. “He wanted everything. And the only way to get it was to kill him.” At the same time Meza was romancing Merendino, he was also in a long-term romantic relationship with the 20-year-old Langston, who claimed
‘HE THOUGHT HE COULD GET AWAY WITH THIS AND INHERIT EVERYTHING’
—DONNA ARMANI PINEDA, MERENDINO FRIEND
she believed her boyfriend was only working as Merendino’s bookkeeper. According to investigators, Meza began complaining about his job in early 2015, telling Langston “it would all be over very soon.” They also allege he had told friends that Merendino was dying of either cancer or heart problems. Though Merendino’s friends were suspicious of the younger man’s motives, they had no idea their friend was in any danger. “David was much younger and very handsome, so part of me worried that he was a gold digger,” says Merendino’s friend Bo Bendana. “But I never thought it would turn violent.” As police closed in on him, Meza eventually admitted to having lured Merendino to the murder site with a story of being stranded on the road and of robbing Merendino of his condo key and stereo equipment. But he insisted he left him alive when he returned to San Diego that night. Authorities countered that Meza’s cell phone records placed him in Mexico until nearly 4 a.m., giving him ample time to carry out the savage killing. For Merendino’s friends and family, his senseless and brutal death is haunting—and they are left with questions of what his life could have been. “He wasone of themostgivingpeopleyou’d evermeet,” says Sheila Stevens, Merendino’s cousin. “To be murdered in the way he was murdered, I don’t have an adjective for that. It was horrendous.” Adds friend Chuck Hart: “I loved his love of life. He was so looking forward to the next chapter.”
After Merendino’s death, Meza presented a new will, handwritten on hotel letterhead, that was signed by Merendino in 2014, leaving Meza everything Merendino had.

WHAT I KNOW NOW
The Return of Ringo Starr THE LEGENDARY BEATLES DRUMMER, 77, REFLECTS ON FAMILY, FAME, NEW MUSIC AND THE GOOD OLD DAYS By JORDAN RUNTAGH Photograph by ANDREW SOUTHAM
“We’re on the Road Again” isn’t just the lead track on Ringo Starr’s new albumGive More Love—it’s a way of life. Despite having risen to the peak of fame in the ’60s as onefourth of the most successful band of all time, the former Beatles drummer refuses to slow down. In October Starr, 77, will embark on a new tour with the collective of rockers he calls his All-Starr Band. The new album is jammed with cameos—including a little help from Paul McCartney. Starr jokes, “He was looking for work. You’ve got to help when you can.” Starr hopes that by continuing to perform in his preternaturally sunny style, he’s providing more than just a gig to his old bandmate— hence his new album title. “There’s a lot of people hurting out there,” he says. “If nothing else, we have to give love.” He’s received plenty of it, most importantly from his wife of 36 years, actress Barbara Bach, who calls at one point to talk dinner plans. Fifty years after the Fab Four sang “All You Need Is Love,” Starr explains that’s just one lesson learned during a remarkable life. PEOPLE October 2, 2017
Music can save your life I grew up in a gang neighborhood, and you had to be in one for protection. Guys had razor blades in their collars; if you grabbed them, you’d cut your hands. There was a guy called Tommy who carried a hammer. There were no guns, just knives and hammers! I wanted to get out of that with music. By the time I was 18, I was playing. Not very well, but you have to start somewhere. And I got out.
My mother knew we made it when we played the Liverpool Empire. The Beatles moved from clubs to theaters, and that was huge. She’d get all dressed up to come when we played. I once got her a very nice gift from Cartier—and she put it under the bed in case someone stole it!
Know when to move on I was in the Beatles eight years, and we decided to break up because it wasn’t working. I was married and had kids, and we were growing up. I sat in the garden and wondered what to do with myself. I decided, “I’m going to go back to all the songs that my family sang.” And that’s when we did my album Sentimental Journey. I was back on a roll again. 86
October 2, 2017 PEOPLE
1. Starr, born Richard Starkey, with mother Elsie in Liverpool, England, late ’40s. 2. Starr’s 1981 wedding to Barbara Bach was a mini Beatles reunion, with McCartney and George Harrison attending. John Lennon had died the year before. 3. In 1969 with oldest son Zak— who went on to play drums with Oasis and The Who. 4. Bach (in 2015) was an early Beatles fan. 5. With McCartney in 2014. “We have dinner together, we hang. We’re still pals.”
Teach your children, but let them be themselves Ihad a drum kit in the livingroom, so Ijust showed [my oldest son] Zak “boomchaka boomchaka.” He would have been around 10. A couple of weeks later I gave him another lesson. He went, “I can do that, Dad!” I said, “Well, you’re on your own!” As long as he can play the pattern, the rest is his style.
Focus on sobriety I didn’t tour in the ’80s, and not a lot in the ’70s. I got involved in a lot of substances, and they became more important than anything else. Then in ’88 I ended up in rehab, and in ’89 I put the ﬁrst All-Starrs together and got back on track. That’s what I’ve done ever since.
Do what brings you joy Playing is what it’s all about for me. That’s why I’m touring; that’s why I make records. I’m in a position where I can just play for as long as I can hold the sticks.

‘I had the most energy in my third trimester, so I was able to use that and really make this house a home’
Port hung the Gray Malin elephant print after finding out Sonny was a boy. “It adds a little character.”
WHITNEY PORT and her TV-producer husband, Tim Rosenman, 36, bought their three-bedroom, two-bathroom house in Studio City, Calif., on a serious time crunch. “We moved in a week before Sonny was born,” says the whitneyport.com creative director, 32, who welcomed their son on July 27. Designing the nursery was the first priority. The baby’s gender was unknown, so it had to appeal to both boys and girls, “with enough cutesiness mixed with classic sophistication,” says Port. With help from Joss & Main style director Donna Garlough, Port created a space with playful patterns and a neutral color scheme. The next project was the master suite. “In my old home, we kind of lived in our closet,” says the Hills alum. “So I wanted to make sure that our bedroom felt like a sanctuary.” Now decorated in soft grays and blues with access to the outside, it’s exactly that. “We keep our curtains open to wake up to the sun rising,” Port says. “We just love it.”

Add lemon zest, lemon juice and 1⁄ 2 cup of the sugar; toss apple slices until well coated. 4. Arrange apple slices in rows, slightly overlapping, on top of puff pastry. Brush apples liberally with melted butter, and sprinkle with remaining 1⁄4 cup sugar. Bake at 375° until the apples are golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes. (If the apples are getting too brown as tart bakes, cover with aluminum foil.) Cool slightly, about 15 minutes; serve warm. Serves: 8 Active time: 20 minutes Total time: 1 hour and 25 minutes
“Being so tart, this is the classic apple-pie apple, because it melds well with brown sugar. I also use them in salads with candied nuts or strong cheeses.”
“The texture is soft relative to other apples, so I use them roasted and pureed for applesauce,” says Guarnaschelli. Photograph by GREG DUPREE

My Fun-Filled Family Meals THE ACTRESS COOKS UP A HAPPY LIFE AT HOME
“I try to make things we can all enjoy,” says Thiessen, at home with her family in L.A. For her pea-and-pancetta pasta recipe, visit people.com/food.
MEALS AT TIFFANI THIESSEN’S home are anything but serious. “Our family is a very silly one,” says the actress and parent of Harper, 7, and Holt, 2, with her husband, artist and actor Brady Smith. “Brady and my daughter are always pulling pranks and keeping us laughing. She has a rubber cockroach she loves to scare Mama with—she’ll hide it around the kitchen while we’re prepping dinner.” As a self-taught cook and host of Cooking Channel’s Dinner at Tiffani’s, Thiessen, 43, takes control in the kitchen, usually planning suppers ahead of time—with Smith, 45, on cleanup duty and the kids pitching in where they can. “I try to think of meals the week before, but some days it comes down to creating something with whatever is in the fridge,” says the star, who will appear on Netflix’s upcoming comedy series Alexa & Katie. Keeping dinnertime low-stress so “we can all come together to enjoy each other’s company” means picking easy dishes like her pea-and-pancetta pasta (above) that everyone in the family will enjoy, banning cell phones at the table (“We have been trying to implement it as a household rule”) and calling for takeout on occasion. “Every now and then, it saves the day,” she says. But she also has other tricks up her sleeve to make grocery shopping and dinner prep less hectic: “Checklists,” she says. “And rosé!” —ANA CALDERONE Photograph by REBECCA SANABRIA
Anne Heche THE EMMY-NOMINATED ACTRESS, 48, STARS IN NBC’S NEW DRAMA THE BRAVE Last time I danced Wow, yesterday with my son [Atlas, 8]. We turn on music and groove out. I also incorporate it in my workout, and I’ll have him join me so it becomes fun. “My House” [by Flo Rida] is Atlas’s fave. He’ll always say, “Google, play ‘Welcome to My House.’ ” He’s a dedicated, devoted child.
Last bet I made I played backgammon with my 83-yearold neighbor, and I won two bucks. I enjoy playing with retired folks, and I like to play for money. He’ll probably win it back, but I’m up a couple dollars. He told me, “You’re just too competitive for me.”
Last gift I gave I just got my nanny who’s also my personal assistant a beautiful embroidered white nightgown from a shop in New Mexico. If I see something that I know is right for someone, I buy it right away because I often forget birthdays. I do the rolling-gift program.
Last guilty pleasure Sitting in a hot tub with my son doing absolutely nothing except giggling. When I get to stop moving. Those are my guilty pleasures.
Last time I laughed Both of my kids crack me up. I play a game with Atlas where he tries to hit a Wiffle ball one-handed with a bat while running. He’s very coordinated, but if he misses, he’ll say, “Mom, go get it!” So basically he’s turned me into a dog. Reported by Emily Strohm
