Salma Hayek always thought her hands were pretty big. But then she decided to pose topless for Allure magazine. In the gorgeous black and white pic published in the mag, the 48-year-old actress clutches her bosom with her hands. Hayek told me while promoting her new animated movie Kahlil Gibran's The Prophet, "I thought my hands were bigger. They're big, but not big enough to cover my breasts. They did cover enough but in my head they were covering more.' Hayek says there's a freedom that goes along with stripping down for the cameras. She said, "It's important to be free…and at my age it's exciting to still be able to take a photograph like that."
A street through Billy Joel's hometown may someday bear his name but a group of New York lawmakers, for now at least, like the signs for Route 107 just the way they are. The proposed honor for the Piano Man is being held up over a difference of opinion over a simple question: Should the state name things after people while they are still alive? Sen. Jack Martins, a Long Island Republican who introduced a bill last year to name a stretch of road in Hicksville for the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer said, "It's more of a philosophical discussion. ... I don't think it has anything to do with Billy Joel."
July was the deadliest month of 2015 so far for killings by police after registering 115 fatalities, according to the Guardian’s ongoing investigation The Counted, which now projects that US law enforcement is on course to kill more than 1,150 people this year. The July figure brought an end to a steady decline in totals over the previous four months. After 113 people were killed in March, 101 died in April, 87 fatalities were recorded in May and 78 in June.
All eyes are on The Donald as the boisterous real estate baron and former reality TV star takes his position as the de facto headliner in the first Republican presidential debate on Thursday. With an unparalleled 17 candidates in the field (just 10 of whom will be allowed to participate in the prime-time telecast), it’s anyone’s game. But one winner is already clear: Fox News. Trump, for all his many faults, is a draw. His presence in the room is a major win for the network during this crucial time of the year: Trump is now polling ahead of every other Republican running, and his presence alongside a wide variety of conservatives means that there’s something for every viewer, even if that something is a bit distasteful. A mix of populism and poppycock presented by the resounding Trump is causing tension even within Fox. Trump’s disparaging comments about Mexicans and Senator John McCain have angered Fox’s parent company executive co-chair, Rupert Murdoch, a long-time critic of Trump.
The dentist vilified around the world for killing a beloved lion in Zimbabwe is thought of fondly by at least one of his neighbors in Eden Prairie, Minnesota. Anita Gibson said on Friday that the Walter Palmer she knows is a “kind and gracious” person and a doting father. Gibson said her daughter often played with Palmer’s daughter when both were students at Eden Lake elementary school about a decade ago. Walter Palmer was the parent at home for their play dates.
