BEING A STAR IN GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS

****
The Guinness World Records 2013 Edition
****


 Justin Bieber



Meryl Streep
 As if being a celebrity didn’t have enough perks, the new Guinness World Records 2013 edition reveals some of the greatest aspects of being a star in record-breaking fashion! Hitting shelves on September 13th, the book features a wide variety of headline-stealing artists ranging from stars like Justin Bieber to legendary icons like Madonna and Meryl Streep. ”Beliebers” can rejoice with Justin Bieber as he earned the title of ‘Youngest Solo Artist to Have Three No 1 Albums’ for his three chart-topping US albums all released before his 18th birthday. These include My World 2.0 (April 10, 2010), Never Say Never: The Remixes (March 5, 2011); and Under the Mistletoe, (19 November 2011), the first Christmas album by a male artist to debut at No.1 in the 55-year history of the US albums chart.





 Lady Gaga




Beyonce
  The daughter of musical superstars Beyoncé and Jay-Z, Blue Ivy Carter made the record books mere days after her January 7th, 2012 birth. Her “breathing, cries and coos” on her father’s track “Glory” debuted on the US R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, earning her the title of “Youngest Person to Appear on a Billboard Chart.” Pop phenomenon, Lady Gaga created the ‘Fastest selling US digital album’ with Born This Way selling 1.1 million copies in its first week. Cementing her legacy, the Queen of Pop, Madonna captured the attention of a record 114 million people when they tuned in to watch her perform the half-time show at Super Bowl XLVI, staged at Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis, Indiana on February 5, 2012. According to viewing figures, the performance, which also included appearances from British rapper M.I.A. and hip-hop star Nicki Minaj, attracted more viewers than the game itself and became the ‘Most Watched Program in U.S. Television History.’



Other standout musical records gracing the pages of the 2013 edition include:



o Rihanna has become the ‘Best-selling Digital Artist (US)’ selling an incredible 47.57 million digital tracks in the US during her career. The 24-year-old singer beat The Black Eyed Peas (42.4 million career digital sales), Eminem (42.29 million), Lady Gaga (42.08 million) and Taylor Swift (41.82 million).

TOMMY LEE JONES & MERYL STREEP INTERVIEW

****
For the August/September cover story of AARP The Magazine, acting legends and stars of the new film, “Hope Springs,” Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones discuss the often taboo subject of mid-life sexuality and what it means to be ‘old’ in Hollywood. In an exclusive interview with the magazine, the Academy Award® winners speak openly about their new movie, “Hope Springs”, opening nationwide Friday, finding passion at any age, finally learning to live for the moment and why “nobody can tell [them] anything!”
****



Tommy Lee Jones




On what drew them to Hope Springs: 


Streep: “I like things that seem like they have a problem…Built into it was something really funny but lodged in something very real.”



“This script was on one of those lists in Hollywood—the 40 best unproduced movies of the decade, or something. And you read it and understood a) why it was good and b) why nobody wanted to do it.”



Jones: “At long last, I had a chance to work with Meryl, so there was no question in my mind that I wanted to do it.”



On identifying with their characters: 



Streep: “I believed my gal. I believed who she was, and I felt like I knew her and loved her. I just could see the world through her eyes.”



On their prolific careers: 



Streep: “I think there’s not a sell-by date on actors…But you also understand what a crapshoot it is and how serendipity plays a huge part. It’s not a piece of cake by any means.”



Jones: “I’ve been lucky and happy. I’ve made some bad movies. And I really enjoyed it!”



On finding passion at any age: 



Jones: “I don’t do anything that is not fun. I just don’t do it. I’m a hedonist.”



Streep: “I find the older I get, the more intense my appetite for living and for appreciating life gets…You realize you’ve got just seconds.”



Meryl Streep





On being “bored” in a relationship: 



Streep: “If you’re bored with somebody, it’s because you’re bored with yourself. If you have a problem with somebody, often it’s something in yourself.”



On endlessly pursuing their passions: 



Streep: “I like everything. There’s just not anything I don’t like to do. That’s the problem. It means I’m very distractible.”



Jones: “I like being a director, and I’m never going to stop being an actor.”



On passing the acting torch to their children: 



Streep: “I’m delighted that we can share some things and that I have some experience that can be of comfort to her.”



Jones: “It makes you feel good when your kids choose to do the thing that you do even as much as you come home and complain about it.”

SHIRLEY MACLAINE GETS LIFE ACHIEVEMENT

****
STARS ALIGNED AS THE AMERICAN FILM INSTITUTE HONORED SHIRLEY MACLAINE
 AT THE
40TH AFI LIFE ACHIEVEMENT AWARD GALA

Black Tie Gala To Be Broadcast On TV Land On Sunday, June 24 At 9:00 p.m. ET/PT
****


Shirley MacLaine



Meryl Streep And Shirley MacLaine
Stage and screen legend Shirley MacLaine was lauded with the 40th annual AFI Life Achievement Award – the highest honor for a career in film. Some of Hollywood’s most revered luminaries turned out to pay tribute to one of America’s most beloved artists. The gala, entitled “TV Land Presents: AFI Life Achievement Award Honoring Shirley MacLaine,” was taped at historic Stage 15 at Sony Pictures Studios and will air on TV Land on Sunday, June 24 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. The evening’s festivities kicked off with MacLaine entering the gala of over 1,000 attendees to “If My Friends Could See Me Now,” a song she made famous in the 1969 screen version of “Sweet Charity.” Immediately following dinner, Warren Beatty, MacLaine’s brother, Academy Award®-winning actor and fellow AFI Life Achievement Award recipient (2008), talked about how the AFI Life Achievement Award was established in 1973 to ensure that “the great masters of film may take their deserved place in history beside leaders in other arts” and introduced the award recipients in attendance to celebrate MacLaine and the award’s 40th anniversary – Sidney Poitier (1992), Jack Nicholson (1994), Steven Spielberg (1995), Meryl Streep (2004) and Morgan Freeman (2011). 



Academy Award®-winning actress Julia Roberts took the stage to speak about MacLaine’s love for playing cards and “the boys” of her life – Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and even Chicago mob boss, Sam Giancana. Fellow “Steel Magnolias” star Sally Field paid tribute to MacLaine by saying, “She is generous beyond a fault, a one of a kind original and an extraordinary actor. She’s a renowned world traveler who collects people. They are her most valued treasures. And I’m very proud to be included in her lifelong collection.” Dakota Fanning (“I Am Sam”) and Katherine Heigl (“27 Dresses”) both spoke about how MacLaine had inspired them in their own journeys in Hollywood. John Travolta introduced an inspiring video with footage from “Sweet Charity” and described MacLaine as “a woman who does it all – but always first – a dancer.” He went on to say that she “fills the world with a presence never seen before.”



Last year’s AFI Life Achievement Award recipient, Morgan Freeman, recounted MacLaine’s impressive journey that led her to where she is today, and Elizabeth McGovern, who stars on “Downton Abbey,” shared a never-before-seen clip from the hit PBS series (returning in 2013) that featured MacLaine and Dame Maggie Smith. 



Comedian Don Rickles had the ballroom in stitches as only he can, while also sincerely noting that MacLaine has “charm, warmth, class and is a person who makes you feel at home and loved on and off the screen.” In addition, Senator George McGovern and U.S. Representative Dennis Kucinich spoke eloquently about MacLaine’s activism and passion to make a difference in the world through her support of the political process.



The evening was peppered with video tributes from the likes of Mikhail Baryshnikov, Jack Black, James L. Brooks, Stephen Hawking, Goldie Hawn, Nicole Kidman, 2010 AFI Life Achievement recipient Mike Nichols and Charlize Theron. 



The evening culminated with 2004 AFI Life Achievement Award honoree and Academy Award®-winner Meryl Streep presenting the prestigious award to her friend, Shirley MacLaine. Streep said, “There are some performers who are indelible. You fall for them early. You fall hard. And you follow them the rest of your life. That’s our Shirl.”



Upon receiving the award, MacLaine took the stage and spoke about the women at her table – Jennifer Aniston, Sally Field, Melanie Griffith, Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep. She said they were “my other half of the sky and my sustained belief that you women will make the world a better place.” She went on to say, “Thank you to the fabulous leading men I’ve had the pleasure of making love to, on and off the screen,” and adding, “When you’re in my life, you never get away – even if you die.” MacLaine closed by saying, “My one piece of assurance to all of us who are overachievers: don’t worry, what we don’t get done now, we will the next time around – if we keep our feet firmly planted on the ground and our heads in the stars, and always listen to the mothers and the women in our lives.”



Among the many other guests present to honor MacLaine were Toni Collette, Carrie Fisher, Peter Fonda, Marcia Gay Harden, Dennis Haysbert, Deborah Secco, Tom Skerritt, Cecilia Suárez and Mena Suvari.


Proceeds from the AFI Life Achievement Award gala directly support the Institute’s national education programs and the preservation of American film history. HP is the Presenting Sponsor of the gala tribute. Official Sponsors include Audi of America, Deloitte, Verizon Digital Media Services and American Airlines – the official airline of AFI, with additional support provided by Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills and Stella Artois.



“TV Land Presents: The AFI Life Achievement Award Honoring Shirley MacLaine” was produced by Bob Gazzale and Chris Merrill for the American Film Institute and was directed by Louis J. Horvitz.
