J. D. Salinger, privacy and celebrity — a Q&A with the director of the new film

She said of his playing wardrobe (via Yahoo! Sports ), “I think I gave my opinion and he completely ignored it. But anyway, he looks great.” Will Ferrell & Pete Carroll Chris McGrath/Getty Images Anyone who knows anything about USC football knows that Will Ferrell is one of its biggest fans. The SNL alum and actor is a graduate of USC and is a frequent fixture at Trojan football games. He even struck up a friendship with former USC coach Pete Carroll, now of the Seattle Seahawks. In fact, the two became such close bros that Carroll was featured in one of Ferrell’s “Funny or Die” videos , and he has been known to send the coach a friendly email after a big win. Tiger Woods & Darius Rucker Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images Tiger Woods may not have many friends these days in light of his…personal failings, but make no mistake: Darius Rucker has stood by him. Of course, Woods and Hootie Rucker initially bonded over their love for hitting the links, and they have stayed friends through thick and thin. Rucker has been seen in the gallery, cheering on his bud during big tournaments, and he has always kept faith that Tiger will rebound from the struggles that have plagued him for the last few years. Rucker has also been known to defend his friend in light of the scandal that eventually ruined his marriage. He told WDEZ.com : People acting like he’s the only guy in the world that’s ever done anything like that, you know, or he’s the only guy on the PGA tour doing something like that, was tough, and to watch him take that fall as a friend was tough. What a loyal guy. Tony Romo & Chace Crawford Source: Dallas Observer Just because you marry a dude’s sister doesn’t mean you and that dude have to get along. Fortunately for Tony Romo, though, his wife’s brother is a pretty cool guy.

New NO MORE PSA campaign featuring more than 40 celebrities calls attention to domestic violence and sexual assault and encourages bystanders to help.

Stacy Keibler & George Clooney It was assumed that after years of being a bachelor, Clooney would finally settle down with his longtime girlfriend Stacy Keibler. But to everyone’s surprise (or not?), the pair called it quits in July 2013 after two years of dating. Jennifer Aniston & Brad Pitt It was the breakup to end all breakups. In fact, though it’s been many years since Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston called it quits, people are still rooting for them to get back together. (And by people, we mean us.) But, Aniston is happily engaged to Justin Theroux, while Pitt is set to marry Angelina Jolie. Woody Allen & Mia Farrow Some people might not remember when Woody Allen and Mia Farrow were once a happily married couple, but many people remember when Allen left Farrow to be with their adopted daughter. Yep, that’s a pretty bad breakup story, if we’ve ever heard one. Julianne Hough & Ryan Seacrest Say it ain’t so! When Seacrest and Hough announced their split, shock echoed around the world. The pair, who began dating in 2010, called it quits in spring of 2013 … and it was unexpected. Michelle Williams & Jason Segel Although their romance was short-lived, when Williams and Segel announced their split in Feb. 2013, it was a sad, sad time for a lot of fans.

Celebrity Breakups That Echoed Worldwide

Now, in this case, it sounds like he led a very exciting life. You argued in the Esquire piece that this would enhance our appreciation for his work. Is that necessarily the case with all writers or is that just because of his life? Its certainly the case with J.D. Salinger. So much of Salingers work is autobiographical. To not understand that is to miss an extraordinary element in understanding his work. [After the film] people immediately go back and read Salingers stories and say to us I have a greater appreciation of the work. The Catcher in the Rye is really a disguised war novel. World War II is the ghost in the machine of all Salingers work. If it hadnt been for World War II, wed never have heard the name J.D.

The new study shows that the overwhelming majority of Americans know victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, but they do not talk about the issues with their children or friends, or take steps to help survivors. The study NO MORE Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, Survey of Attitudes and Experiences of Teens and Adults shows an urgent need for increased awareness, conversation and education around domestic violence and sexual assault, with an emphasis on what bystanders can do to prevent violence and help victims before it is too late. Among the key findings of the newly released study: 60% of Americans know a victim of domestic violence or sexual assault. Three out of four (73%) parents with children under the age of 18 said that they have not had a conversation about domestic violence or sexual assault with their children. 67% of Americans say they have not talked about domestic violence with their friends; even more, 73% have not discussed sexual assault. Even though 75% of Americans say that they would step in and help a stranger being abused, the reality is most people do not help. For example, among the 70% of women who experienced domestic violence and then told someone about it, more than half (58%) said that no one helped them. But 64% of Americans say if we talk more about domestic violence and sexual assault, it would make it easier to help someone. The Avon Foundation for Women funded this survey to better understand why domestic violence and sexual assault remain so inherently hidden and marginalized in our society, said Carol Kurzig, President of the Avon Foundation for Women. The data shows us that conversations about these issues simply are not happening. That silence leaves victims trapped by the shame, stigma and fear that these crimes carry. If we can encourage more people to start talking, we can end that cycle and bring these issues to light in a new way. The full report can be viewed at nomore.org/nomorestudy .
