DiCaprio was at the beginning of his Hollywood career when he spied his longtime hero Phoenix was at a party on Halloween night. The up and coming star, who was 18 at the time, was desperate to corner his idol for a chat but didn’t have time to approach Phoenix before he left the bash. And DiCaprio will always remember the missed opportunity, because 23-year-old Phoenix collapsed and died from a drug overdose outside the Viper Room a few hours later.

By Christine Stoddard Resident Magazine -- Movies, music, and advertisements can give us a false impression of the holidays. Manhattan philanthropist Jean Shafiroff warns against buying into the sugarplum fairy hype. “You have to manage your expectations,” says Shafiroff. “If you’re a person of privilege, be grateful for what you have, even if it doesn’t match the fantasy.
