The Oscar winner, 50, returns as do-gooder con man Nate Ford on the fourth season of TNT’s Leverage, premiering tonight at 9 p.m. ET. Nate and Sophie spent the night together in last season’s finale. What’s next? They’ll continue to struggle with how to define things. Their relationship is spicy and complicated. Were you surprised by the controversy over your Groupon commercial, which some felt was insensitive to the struggles in Tibet? It was never anyone’s intention to offend people, but I’m glad that when Groupon realized they had, they acted quickly to remove it. Any guest stars this season? Some really great people: Danny Glover, Leon Rippy, and Eric Stoltz.

ANIMAL MAGNETISM:

This long-tailed monkey carried his feline pal around to protect her.

f you think

politics makes for strange bedfellows, consider these tales from the animal kingdom—a leopard becomes best buds with a cow, an elephant pals around with a sheep, and a fish tries to nuzzle a dog. In Unlikely Friendships, author and conservation biologist Jennifer Holland offers these and 44 other stories of extraordinary bonds. “Animals of different species get together for many reasons, among them natural disasters,” Holland says. One of the most surprising pairings: the baby hippo that found a substitute mother in a 130-year-old giant tortoise in the wake of a deadly tsunami in Kenya. The two frolicked in the same pond and slept side by side, even developing a special language. Loneliness can also play a role in these friendships. When a scrappy kitten (pictured above) strayed into the Sacred Monkey Forest in Bali, she became the adored pet of a long-tailed macaque. The kitten grew so attached to the monkey that she ran back to him whenSee 10 more photos ever park staff tried to “rescue” her. “Creatures that we think should of unusual best be enemies but get along can teach us something about how we friends at Parade .com/animals treat animals—and each other,” Holland says. —Joanne Kaufman

THE HYPNOTIST by Lars Kepler, fiction ($27)

A family is murdered in a Stockholm suburb, and detective Joona Linna pairs up with a disgraced former hypnotist to determine whodunit. But when he hypnotizes the crime’s only survivor, a 15-year-old boy, he sets off a gripping series of twists and turns, one that makes this thriller a natural successor to the Stieg Larsson series.

P Television THE BIG C Showtime, June 27, 10:30 p.m. ET

Laura Linney’s Cathy was a fierce free spirit in season one of this poignant dramedy about a woman stricken with melanoma. Now she’s getting treatment, surrounded by a fantastic supporting cast and guest stars including Alan Alda. Expect the unexpected.

P Books ks ROBOPOCALYPSE by Daniel H. Wilson, fiction ($25)

What if our computers— which power everything from toys and blenders to cars and planes—turned on us? This electrifying thriller about a robots-vs.-humans war will entertain you, but it will also make you think about our technology dependency. (Steven Spielberg plans to direct the movie version.)

P Movies CONAN O’BRIEN CAN’T STOP June 24 (rated R) In between leaving NBC and starting on TBS, the late-night host worked out his aggressions and kept his creative juices flowing by doing a 32-city “Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour.” This is the behind-thescenes documentary of those exploits, and it showcases a Conan who’s alternately exhilarated, exhausted, angry— and, yes, very funny.

Approved Uses for VIMOVO VIMOVO is approved to relieve the signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis, and to decrease the risk of stomach (gastric) ulcers in patients at risk of developing stomach ulcers from treatment with NSAIDs. VIMOVO is not recommended as a starting treatment for relief of acute pain. Controlled studies do not extend beyond 6 months. Important Safety Information Like all medications that contain nonsteroidal anti inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), VIMOVO may increase the chance of a heart attack or stroke that can lead to death. This chance increases with longer use of NSAID medicines, and in people who have heart disease. NSAID-containing medications, such as VIMOVO, should never be used before or after a type of heart surgery called coronary artery bypass graft (CABG). As with all medications that contain NSAIDs, VIMOVO may increase the chance of stomach and intestinal problems, such as bleeding or an ulcer, which can occur without warning and may cause death. Elderly patients are at greater risk for serious gastrointestinal events. VIMOVO is not right for everyone, including patients who have had an asthma attack, hives, or other allergic reaction with aspirin or any other NSAID medicine, patients who are allergic to any of the ingredients in VIMOVO, or women in late stages of pregnancy. Serious allergic reactions, including skin reactions, can occur without warning and can be life-threatening; discontinue use of VIMOVO at the first appearance of a skin rash, or if you develop sudden wheezing; swelling of the lips, tongue or throat; fainting; or problems swallowing. VIMOVO should be used at the lowest dose and for the shortest amount of time as directed by your health care provider. Tell your health care provider right away if you develop signs of active bleeding from any source.

Requires a prescription; subject to eligibility rules; restrictions apply.

Manner Up! Modern etiquette made easy

Q. Last night, I was at the movies, and the woman next to me kept checking her email. It was really distracting. Did I have a right to tell her to turn off her phone? —Stuart F., Boston A: How dare you want to concentrate on watching a movie in a movie theater! Look, I love email as much as the next person, but I still want to chop the fingers off anyone who texts/emails/ updates her Facebook status during a movie. At the very least, I’d like to turn a tiny flashlight on and off in the perpetrator’s eyes—because that’s essentially what she’s doing to everyone near her. Assuming that’s not an option, you are entirely within your rights to ask someone to turn off her cell phone. In fact, wasn’t there an onscreen message before the movie that asked everyone to do so? It’s sometimes easier to switch seats than confront a rude person, but if you can’t (or don’t want to) move, try a polite request. Keep it short and sweet: “Hi. If you have an emergency, can you take it outside? We’re trying to watch the movie. Thanks.” If your request is ignored, call in the movie security guy— who will tell the guilty texter to cease and desist. —Judith Newman Send your questions to Parade.com/mannerup 6 • June 26, 2011

Do dark tinted windows make a car absorb more heat? Or do they actually keep the interior cooler? —David Holzman, Apopka, Fla.

If heat is your only concern, the darker the tint, the better—but you may not be able to drive your really cool car on public roads. Window tinting is heavily regulated, mostly for safety reasons, and officers may be carrying tint meters.

sights on big-screen success, too: His new film—the romantic comedy Monte Carlo, starring Selena Gomez and Leighton Meester— opens July 1. Monteith’s future didn’t always seem so promising. In fact, his own teen years were such a minefield that he was lucky to make it to age 20. Opening up about his troubled past as he never has before, Monteith wants to deliver a message for anyone struggling as he once did: “There is a way out. You never know what’s in store for you.” The actor grew up in Victoria, British Columbia, feeling like an outsider. “I didn’t have any definition of self,” he says. After his parents divorced when he was 7, he saw less of his father, who was in the military. He began having difficulties in school. “I never fit in, so I started pretending I was other people. I’d find people I thought were cool and dress how they dressed, talk how they talked, do whatever they were into.” By 13, Monteith—once a promising student who at age 5 could read at a fourth-grade level––was skipping school to get drunk and smoke pot. He eventually dropped out. His mother, an interior decorator, told him to return to school and stop the rebellious behavior— or find a new home.

thing and everything, as much as possible,” he says, when asked to elaborate. “I had a serious problem.” Afraid that he “could die,” his mother and a group of friends staged an intervention when he was 19. “That’s when I first went to rehab. I did the stint but then went back to doing exactly what I left off doing.” Monteith might have continued down that path if not for what he calls “the crystallizing event.” He pauses to find the right words. “I stole a significant amount of money from a family member,” he continues quietly. “I knew I was going to get caught, but I was so desperate I didn’t care. It was a cry for help. I was confronted and I said, ‘Yeah, it was me.’ It was the first honorable, truthful thing that had come out of my mouth in years.” He was given an ultimatum: He had to get clean, or the family member would report him to the police and press charges. Although it wasn’t the first time Monteith had taken something that didn’t belong to him (“A lot of things went missing when I was around; I had high overhead to take care of ”), up until then he had avoided prosecution. “I was done fighting myself,” he recalls of his turning point. “I finally said, ‘I’m gonna start looking at my life and figure out why I’m doing this.’” Monteith left Victoria and moved in with a family friend in the small industrial city of Nanaimo. It was there, living in a double-wide trailer, that he began the painstaking process of rebuilding his life. He quit using, got a job as a roofer, and surrounded himself with other sober people. Among them was Andrew McIlroy, a Vancouverbased acting coach who came to Nanaimo on the weekends to 12 • June 26, 2011

“I remember going, ‘Okay, this is something you can reasonably think of doing as a career.’ ” It was a life-altering moment for Monteith, the first time he’d felt the satisfaction of “working hard and being good at something.” Though acting was still a way to pretend to be other people, it built up his confidence instead of tearing it down. A few months after moving to Nanaimo, Monteith tossed his scant belongings into a garbage bag and relocated to Vancouver to teach. “I understood where he’d begin auditioning for roles. come from,” says McIlroy, “and I Again, McIlroy—the father figure thought, ‘If this fish slips back into Monteith had long yearned for— the sea, we may never see him provided crucial support, letting again.

And for the young man. he’s never stopped.” The star shares his “Cory was working That work ethic thoughts on love and from some very dark marriage (he wants kids!) would eventually land at Parade.com/cory truths,” says McIlroy. him guest spots on LABORS OF LOVE: Monteith in a scene from Glee, above, and with his mother, Ann, of whom he says, “We’re closer than close because of what we’ve been through.”

shows like Supernatural and, in 2009, his costarring role on Glee, despite his lack of vocal training. While the schedule for the Fox hit is grueling—even during the summer, thanks to the Glee Live! concert tour—Monteith, who also plays drums for the fledgling Cali-rock band Bonnie Dune, isn’t complaining. He knows how fortunate he is. “What’s exciting to me now,” says the actor, who is single and lives with roommates in a rental house, “is seeing where this all goes.” Along with the career success have come personal victories. This spring, Monteith received a high school diploma from one of the alternative schools he attended in Victoria—“based,” he says, “on abilities demonstrated in the workplace.” And in November 2009, he got together with his father for the first time in 17 years. “We’d spoken maybe three or four times [during that period],” Monteith says, “and he reached out to me on Facebook. I couldn’t shut the door, so I got on a plane. He greeted me at the airport, and [he and Monteith’s stepmother] were so happy they were almost crying. It was a good time. At some point, you realize your parents are human. They make the best decisions they can with the options available to them.” The perspective he has gained is part of the reason he has chosen to speak out now about his extraordinary journey. “I don’t want kids to think it’s okay to drop out of school and get high, and they’ll be famous actors, too,” says Monteith, who works with a group called Virgin Unite that helps atrisk youth. “I’m lucky on so many counts—I’m lucky to be alive. “But for those people who might give up: Get real about what you want and go after it. If I can, anyone can.”

TRIPS ON 1 TANK OF GAS (OR LESS!)

W

ith the cost of gas edging ever higher, long driving vacations (not to mention plane rides) are in the “just too pricey” category for many families this summer. But that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with a staycation. Peter Greenberg, travel editor for CBS News, has come up with 15 amazing trips, each reachable from an American city on less than a tank of gas (as a standard, we used a Ford Fusion, which gets 32 mpg on the highway and has a 17.5-gallon tank).* All are sure to entertain, enthrall, educate— just about everything but exhaust you (and your bank account).

1

Seattle to Whidbey Island, Wash. (34 miles) Whidbey has a split personality: part pastoral, with fields, wineries, and artists’ studios; and part military, with a Naval Air Station and historic Fort Casey. Relive the pioneer days at Ebey’s Landing National Historical Reserve, which contains 17 working farms and over 400 historic structures. Other activities include camping, clamming, and whale watching.

2

San Francisco to Lava Beds National Monument, Calif. (375 miles) Otherworldly and untamed are two words that describe this unique spot. Ancient volcanic eruptions formed a rugged landscape of caves, craters, and cones, with some two dozen lava-tube caves open to explore. Two

park must-sees are Petroglyph Point, one of the largest examples of Native American rock art in the U.S., and Captain Jack’s Stronghold, a lava fortress where Modoc Indians held off the U.S. Army from 1872 to 1873.

3

Los Angeles to Palos Verdes Peninsula, Calif. (31 miles) The area’s seaside splendors include Abalone Cove Shoreline Park, with pristine tide pools of urchins and anemones; the pretty South Coast Botanic Garden; and the 1,200-acre Palos Verdes Nature Preserve. There are also man-made standouts: the Banning Museum (an 1864 mansion), the cliffside Wayfarer’s Chapel (its architect was Frank Lloyd Wright’s son), and Point Vicente Lighthouse (the best spot to catch a sunset).

Denver to Mount Evans, Colo. (60 miles) Scale Mount Evans with four wheels instead of two legs by driving up North America’s highest paved road (14,130 feet at the top). You’ll pass through several climate zones, find photo ops galore, and see mountain goats and bighorn sheep.

6

Dallas to Canton, Tex. (57 miles) This town is best known for the monthly Canton Trade Days, one of the world’s largest flea markets. It’s mind-bogglingly huge: as many as 7,000 vendors spread out over nearly 500 acres. When you’re all shopped out, go boating or hiking or play golf at a local course.

7

Houston to Montgomery, Tex. (56 miles) Just four square miles, this quaint town is pedestrianfriendly and history-proud. Said to be the birthplace of the Lone Star flag, it’s full of antique stores and restored 19th-century homes. Gourmets will enjoy visiting the area’s cluster of wineries.

WASHINGTON

Salt Lake City to Ogden, Utah (39 miles) Ogden’s a town for all seasons. In the 15 summer, explore its horseback-riding, hiking, and biking trails. Two rivers meet here, offering great boating and fishing. Foul weather? The Salomon Center has bumper cars and indoor surfing and skydiving. Come winter, hit the slopes for prime skiing and snowboarding.

8

Minneapolis to Red Wing, Minn. (55 miles) Red Wing is an apt name for this town of many natural wonders. There’s superb walleye and sauger fishing, scenic hiking on the bluffs and the Cannon Valley trail, and, in the winter, cross-country skiing and bald-eagle viewing. Fans of Americana will admire the historic train depot, local Red Wing pottery, and—of course—the world’s biggest boot (size 638 ½).

9

Chicago to McHenry County, Ill. (50 miles) Take a break from the city and head back to the farm: The county is home to about 1,000 of them, many with pick-your-own orchards and fields. In the fall, wind your way through the Richardson Farm corn maze, an 11-mile-long doozy. If your tastes run more Hollywood, go to the drive-in theater in McHenry or to the nearby Volo Auto Museum, which has TV’s Batmobile and General Lee, plus other pop-culture cars. Cleveland to the Lake Erie Islands, Ohio (83 miles) This island chain has activities for all types: the social (Put-in-Bay on South Bass Island is known for its nightlife), the sporty (fishing, hiking, swimming, kayaking, scubadiving), and the scientific (the Glacial Grooves on Kelleys Island are intriguing Ice Age–era bedrock creases), as well as those looking to slow down (bikes and golf carts are common ways to get around).

10

Atlanta to Dahlonega, Ga. (66 miles) This town has multiple claims to fame: It was the site of an 1828 gold rush (you can visit an old mine), boasts ultra-punishing bike trails (according to pros like Lance Armstrong), and has the state’s tallest waterfall (a 729-foot beauty) at Amicalola State Park.

Road Trips | continued

Orlando to Citrus County, Fla. (83 miles) Aquatic-animal enthusiasts will be in their element at the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge, where visitors can snorkel with the endangered manatee. Other native creatures—cougars, key deer, and bobcats—can be glimpsed at Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. Or try a Citrus-y sport like kayak fishing or scalloping.

12

Washington, D.C., to Easton, Md. (68 miles) Easton’s charming downtown is the site of two annual art shows: the Plein Air festival (July 18–24), an outdoor painting exhibit and contest, and the Waterfowl Festival (Nov. 11–13), a wildlife-art expo. But the area has much more to offer road-trippers: flat, scenic cycling terrain, seven golf courses, antique shops, and water sports.

13

14

New York City to the Delaware Water Gap, N.J. and Pa. (72 miles) History and nature converge at this point, where the Delaware River cuts through the Appalachian Mountains. The area saw skirmishes in the French and Indian War, served as an Underground Railroad hub, and hosted vacationers in the late 19th century; structures from these periods still stand. Today visitors are drawn by the rock climbing, boating, fishing, and hiking (the 27-mile stretch of the Appalachian Trail is a favorite). Boston to Cape Ann, Mass. (40 miles) Come here for New England charm minus the crazy crowds. Whale watching, boating, fishing, and feasting on seafood are the main to-dos. Or dine at one of these foodie faves: Rockport’s Lobster Pool for lobster rolls and Ipswich’s Clam Box (shaped like … a clam box!) for fried whole-belly clams. The area also has one of the country’s oldest art colonies; you can visit artists’ studios, galleries, and the former homes of legends like Edward Hopper.

StayHealthy 5 THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT

1

Improving Cholesterol

Even thin or athletic people can have high numbers. Three-quarters of the cholesterol in your body is produced by your liver and other cells, and how much you produce is largely genetic. But you can do a lot to control the remaining quarter.

2

The good matters just as much as the bad. HDL particles (the good kind) clear LDL particles (the bad kind) from your blood, helping to keep them from clogging your arteries.

3

An apple a day really can keep the doctor away. A recent study found that subjects who ate 75 grams of dried apple (about two fresh apples) daily lowered their overall cholesterol levels by 14 percent

and LDL levels by 23 percent.

4

But what you eat is only part of the story. Increasing your physical activity, quitting smoking, and losing 10 percent of your body weight can boost HDL by 20 to 30 percent, says Dr. Robert Eckel, former president of the American Heart Association.

LEARN YOUR FAMILY HEALTH HISTORY

A recent study of cancer patients found that many were unable to accurately report whether family members had had the disease. For help re-creating your own family’s medical background, go to familyhistory.hhs.gov.

5

Breast-feeding can make a dent in cholesterol levels later on. A breastfed baby can consume six times the cholesterol of the average adult’s diet, and this early exposure may improve the body’s ability to metabolize cholesterol, leading to lower levels later in life. —Kalee Thompson

SundayDinner

Grilled Salmon With MapleGinger Glaze ¾ cup maple syrup 1 ∕3 cup balsamic vinegar 3 Tbsp fresh ginger, peeled and minced 4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced ½ to ¾ tsp hot-red-pepper flakes Salt (to taste) 1 (3-lb) side of salmon, skin on, boned 3 to 4 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

1. Prepare a charcoal fire, or preheat a gas grill for direct grilling over medium flame. 2. In a small bowl, mix together the first six ingredients. 3. Using a pastry brush, coat both sides of the salmon with olive oil. 4. Place the salmon, flesh side down, on the grill. Cook until it loosens its grip on the grill, 7 to 8 minutes. Turn carefully, then spoon the sauce over the cooked side of the fish. Grill until the sauce has formed a glaze and the salmon flakes with a fork but is still a bit opaque in the center, about 4 to 5 minutes. 5. Remove from the grill and serve.

Catch of Today The morning show’s Al Roker likes his salmon sweet and savory

cle

When it comes to cooking, I’m pretty much a traditionalist. I’ve been making this dish for at least 10 years. Salmon’s a flavorful fish, and it stands up well to other flavors. So if you put a little maple on it, plus salt and pepper, you get a sweet and savory dish. And it’s family-friendly—kids like it. Sometimes, my children help me cook—even if it’s just stirring something or putting a

dish in the oven. But if a recipe requires a lot of chopping, or if I really have to get stuff done in a certain amount of time, then I let them do other chores, like setting the table. Three things are a must, however: We say grace before every meal; we try to have a salad every night; and no BlackBerries, no phones, and no TV allowed. We just enjoy each other and relax.

P “It’s better to undercook this dish a bit than to overcook it. People need to remember that even after you take fish off the grill or out of the oven, it’s going to continue cooking.”

P “Invest in an oven thermometer. Just because you set the thermostat to 350°F doesn’t necessarily mean that’s what the temperature is inside.”

P “Even if you haven’t cooked outdoors, make an effort to eat there in the summer. I look forward to that so much.”
