PUBLISHER'S CORNER STAY SAFE AT HOME! I want to wish you the best during these very difficult and uncertain times. The worldwide COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives in ways that were simply unimaginable a couple of weeks ago. I feel like I am living in a movie sometimes, and my biggest worry is the safety and health of my mom, stepdad, brothers, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, family members, and all my friends. If I was watching our current daily lives and news from around the world in a film, I would find it farfetched and hard to believe. I would probably think that someone had to be really creative to think up such a movie plot. Unfortunately, this is neither a movie nor a dream we can wake up from. I implore you to stay safe, and stay at home to protect the lives of everyone you love, and of our fellow citizens. I also want to extend my most sincere thanks to all the heroes fighting the battle against the COVID-19 virus on the front lines. We owe an immense debt of gratitude to the doctors, nurses, hospital staff, cleaning people, first responders and members of our national guard and military who are out there every day fighting the spread of the virus and saving lives. You are our true heroes. Thank you very much for your service and sacrifice! This week, we bring you our first digital only issue of the year. We did our best to print and distribute Wire Magazine, but the mandatory stay at home orders and closures of non-essential businesses mandated by our governor and local mayors made it impossible to print and distribute our magazine. I also needed to prioritize the safety and health of our staff, so everyone could stay safe at home. For now, we have suspended the printing and distribution of Wire Magazine during the unprecedented COVID-19 national and international emergency. We will print and distribute Wire Magazine in all our distribution points once they reopen and it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we will be publishing our digital issues every other week starting this week, and continue bringing you our content online on our website, on social media, in our weekly email newsletter and in our videos. We are all in this together, so we want to provide you with interesting and fun lifestyle content that can help you take your mind off the incredible uncertainty and stress many of us are under during these very tough times. On behalf of the Wire Magazine family, I want to thank you for your continued support of our publication and tell you that we are committed to overcoming the challenges we are all facing to the best of our ability.
Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a big night when you have a little blue pill.
Best wishes and good health,
Rafa Carvajal Publisher & Editor in Chief firstname.lastname@example.org

VIGGO SHARES HIS ‘SECRET’ FOR
ADDICTEDUSA.COM By Mike Bahr | Photos provided by AddictedUSA.com

Typically, adult models work behind-thescenes after their modeling days are over. Not Viggo Sorensen. Viggo is a semiprofessional breakdancer who was moonlighting as a cameraman for Bel Ami for a full year before deciding to make the move to in front of the camera. " I t w a s n’ t s o m e t h i n g I h a d e v e n considered doing," he admits, ''but I’ve always liked being different, pushing myself to live an interesting life that is unlike anything my friends or anyone else I know is doing." The ambitious man has lots of things he wants to see and experiences he wants to do while he’s still young and strapping, including fashion modeling. This month, Viggo Sorensen can check one more item off his bucket list. He is the new face and body for Addicted Swimwear's new Secret collection. Wire Magazine spoke with the Bel Ami star-turned swimwear model from his home in the Czech Republic. Mike Bahr: The new campaign is called "Secret." What is your deepest, darkest secret? Viggo Sorensen: I’m extremely shy! Seriously! I’m always afraid to approach a guy I would like to date. Also, I’m stupid with trusting the wrong people. MB: Tell us about your childhood. VS: I grew up in a small city in the Czech Republic where I still live, actually. I was a very happy kid with my two brothers. We played with our Pokemon cards, bay blades and my all-time favorite thing to do was ride my motorcycle with my grandpa. We lived in a small apartment until I was five, which was hard on my mom because I was a handful, always full of energy. She would go crazy, spending the whole day with me! To get some relief, she enrolled me in sports at a young age. MB: Were you trained as a gymnast? VS: My mom always wanted me to do gymnastics, but no, I never pursued formal training.

MB: Has being a porn star impacted your dating life? VS: I would say so. I haven't dated since I started appearing in films. MB: Maybe you’re too picky. What do you look for in a guy? VS: Personality, the ability to make others smile, dedication and a nice-looking body. MB: Are you enjoying your new fame? VS: The best part of adult films is traveling, trying new things, meeting new, interesting people and yes, the money. MB: You’re known for your flexibility. What are your favorite positions? VS: An upside-down handstand. I have also done a video where I jerk off while doing a split. That was fun! MB: Who is your best buddy in the biz? VS: I feel the closest to Sven Basquiat. We share similar interests. MB: What kind of hijinks have you two gotten into? VS: We partied every night at the Maldives Flirt4Free summit. At one point, we were wrestling and he ripped my earring out! I haven’t worn earrings since. MB: Do you have any tattoos? VS: None and I probably won't ever get any. MB: Do you believe in any superstitions? VS: What goes around comes around. I’m a definite believer in karma. MB: Beyonce, Billie (Eilish), Barbra (Streisand)… who is the real queen B? VS: Honestly, I only know Beyonce. The other two could be Spanish villages, as far as I know. MB: Who is the unlikeliest person that you follow on Instagram? VS: Donald Trump is the first name that comes to mind.

MB: What would a film of your life be called, and who would star as you in it? VS: The Storymaker because I don’t wait for things to happen in my life. I’m the designer of my destiny. Matthew McConaughey would play me. MB: What makes you smile? VS: Good food, beautiful nature views, the night sky, and funny people. MB: What makes you angry? VS: Stupidity and insincerity. MB: Who are your heroes? VS: I don't have any specific heroes in my life. I look up to people who work hard to achieve their goals and lead interesting, happy lives. If I were to choose from men in the adult industry that I admire, they would be Paul Cassidy, Sven Basquiat, and Alam Wernik. MB: You find a magic genie in a bottle. What are your three wishes? VS: To find love for life, travel the world, and play sports until I'm all gray. MB: What does your gravestone read? VS: He lived hard and loved every second of it.

FALL/WINTER 2020 COLLECTION By Michael Bustamante Photos provided by Versace Versace presented its men’s and women’s Fall/Winter 2020 collections in the same runway for the first time ever in celebration of equality and inclusivity. The brand is known for its freedom of expression and bold choices and Donatella solidifies this with a bold move. “Who is the man and who is the woman of today? The reason I wanted to show my men’s and women’s collections together today is that men and women are equally powerful. It doesn’t have anything to do with gender, it’s that their power comes from a different type of confidence, both from their sensual exuberance and their minds,” said Donatella. There are two things the Versace man and woman have in common – confidence. They are both wildly individualistic and unafraid of making bold choices. For menswear, the Versace FW20 collection is all about hypermasculinity with broad shoulders. Head to toe tracksuits have sports references along with netting-backed nylon separates. Also, it wouldn’t be a Versace collection without colorful prints. This time around, the focus is the Virtus V, which has been enlarged and distorted. Acid-toned florals and achromic designs are also visible throughout the collection. The collection has bold neon colors that are sure to lift you up during the cooler months. A new sneaker is also introduced, the Trigreca, which will be available in various colors. To shop Versace, visit versace.com. Keep in mind that for the safety of our community, as of now, all Versace stores will be closed until April 10.

Question: What do you call a film that’s not funny, not deeply dramatic, and feels like a messed-up effort to re-make a good foreign film? I guess you call it Downhill and label it a 'dramedy.' To sum up the Downhill situation; the filmmakers took what should have been a dream comedy pairing, in this case, the wonderfully talented Julia LouisDreyfus and the woe begotten Will Ferrell, and gave them a script whose plot is way too minimal, where laughs are few and far between, and where the resolution is just too sugary American sweet to make the time watching it worthwhile. When you stand back and look hard at this dud of a film, you have to wonder how a movie with such talented actors, beautiful locations, and breathtaking cinematography; that won’t even play well on television, ever got the green light to get made. I sure did.
DIRECTED BY: NAT FAXON & JIM RASH SCREENPLAY BY: NAT FAXON, JIM RASH, & JESSE ARMSTRONG CAST: WILL FERRELL, JULIA LOUIS-DREYFUS, ZACH WOODS, ZOË CHAO Downhill Rating: 2 stars (out of 5) Rated: R (for language and some sexual material)
Running Time: 1 hour and 26 minutes

Here’s the storyline… A married American couple is on vacation at an adult ski resort in Austria with their two young children. On the second day while they take a noon break from skiing at a mountain top chalet to grab a bite to eat, they just barely survive an unexpected avalanche. During the event, the husband (Ferrell) grabs his cell phone and heads for cover, leaving this wife (Louis-Dreyfus) and children behind to fend for themselves.
In the aftermath, the husband’s self-saving reaction to the danger posed to his family by the avalanche opens the door to the possible destruction of their marriage and threatens to also ruin his relationship with his children. The film is a fairly accurate reinterpretation of Director Ruben Östlund’s 2014 Swedish film Force Majeure, but the original is much better than this version. I wonder why the powers that be in Hollywood ever wanted to remake that gem of a film, with broad European sensibilities? I guess Hollywood just can’t stop itself from trying to make money off the coattails of great foreign films. Ferrell is hopelessly miss-cast as the husband in this movie. He’s stiff, never funny, and unbelievable, the exact opposite of all the elements needed to make the role work. On the other hand, Julia Louis-Dreyfus displayed a terrific range of performance and was never unbelievable. Actually, she’s the only reason to give this film some attention. She’s been a comic treasure for decades and her mature acting talent is on full display here. My take… I can’t recommend this film. It’s a poor copy of an original, and we all know what that looks like. Pass.
