There’s currently an enticing job listing over in the Scottish Borders for a family who needs a nanny. The pay is over $ 63,000 a year, the kids are five and seven years old, and you’d get to live on a beautiful historic property that is absolutely, insanely haunted.
Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals on NBCSN…the French Open is on the Tennis Channel all day…there’s the normal baseball to ignore and check your local listings for WNBA action. I’m still trying to figure out why the French Open is on a specialty channel that’s hard to find. How does this happen to a major?
Goldie Hawn is, and will forever be, a badass. The legendary actress recently sat down with Interview magazine for an in-depth chat with none other than her daughter, Kate Hudson. (Note: Before the two even get started, Kate’s brother Oliver calls. After Kate says, «Yo, I’m interviewing mom right now,» Goldie says to tell him she needs her car back. When he says he still needs it, Goldie tells Kate to hang up on him.) The incredibly close mother-daughter duo then chat about everything from why Goldie took a 15-year break from Hollywood (she costars in this year’s Snatched with Amy Schumer) to how she handled her haters over the years. See her best quotes below.
On what first brought her to California: «I was almost 20, and I was going to dance in a show in a theater across from Disneyland. I had never flown over the entire United States before. I had 250 dollars saved, but my mom bought my ticket because I’d taken 200 of those dollars and bought a dog. [Hudson laughs] My priorities might have been mixed up, but this little puppy poodle came with me on the plane, and I’ll never forget flying across the desert. I wrote — granted this was after one or two Bloody Marys — but I wrote in my diary, ‘If anyone could doubt the existence of God, then they have to look again.’ It was a profound spiritual experience, going to where I could see space and nothing else. As far as I could see was as far as my spirit went. And I had no idea where my life was going. I believed this was a short gig and that I would come home and marry a Jewish dentist and have a beautiful little house with a picket fence and raise children and have a dancing school.»
On standing up for herself in Hollywood: «Liberation is an interesting word, because you can be liberated from external things, and also from your internal dialogue. During the era when women were burning their bras — which, by the way, they never actually did — but when women were first becoming liberated, I was 23. And I met a woman who asked, ‘Don’t you feel bad because you’re sort of acting like the stupid airhead blond?’ And I totally surprised myself. I said, ‘Liberation can also come from the inside.’ My sense of liberation and the freedom to speak the way I want to and to feel solid in my shoes was getting stronger and stronger. That’s what helps me move through other people’s perceptions of how I should or should not be liberated. I would never listen to those rules. Don’t tell me I can’t do that. Watch me. Don’t tell me I can’t direct this movie. Watch me.»
On why she waited so long to make another movie: «Because I believe that life is about doing. It’s about changing. It’s about transitioning. I can’t imagine, as a human being, not being able to grow. When I turned 50, I asked some of my girlfriends, all actresses of the same age, ‘What are we going to do now?’ I wanted to go live somewhere for a while, learn archaeology, or take part in healing the world on some level. I wanted to dig deep and say, ‘Who am I now? What do I have to offer? What do I have to learn?’ I started learning about the brain, psychology. And after 9/11, I decided, ‘I know what I’m going to do.’ I ended up writing two books and creating MindUP [a neuroscience, mindfulness, and positive psychology-based curriculum for children, grades pre-K through 12]. It’s now in Jordan, Serbia, the UK, America, Canada, Hong Kong. I never looked back. I never wished to be acting again. I was so engaged.»

He’s “casually” dating Nina Dobrev and putting moves on model Ashley Haas. In fact, Dobrev was even present during the…

There’s no denying Kate Hudson‘s special bond with her mom Goldie Hawn’s longtime partner, Kurt Russell. The actor, whom she affectionately calls «Pa,» has been her main father figure for most of her life, and that includes dishing out fatherly advice when she needs it most. During a recent interview on ABC Radio’s No Limits With Rebecca Jarvis podcast, the actress revealed the encouraging words Kurt gave her after she lost the Oscar for best supporting actress for her role in Almost Famous in 2001. «Something Kurt said to me at the Oscars after I lost [was], ‘Congratulations. You can now go have your career,'» she said. «[That] was, like, such a great thing to say, because it’s just starting, I was 21, so it was kind of amazing to have that so young and then just start working and having that kind of demand at a young age is just incredible.»
While coming from a family full of stars can be a lot of pressure, Kate admitted that they don’t focus on awards. «The work ethic in our family is really huge,» she added. «They definitely instilled that in all of their kids . . . it was just basically, ‘Do your job, do it the best you can.'» And if she’s being completely honest, she never really saw her parents the way the rest of Hollywood does. «Obviously, as you get older, you start to realize that people see your parents differently, but to us, they’re our parents, and we had a great childhood because there was so much love. They were very present parents, surprisingly, for how big their careers were.»
You laugh, but let’s face it: I can’t think of a better person to discuss the ins and outs of anal than someone who appears to permanently have a stick up their ass. Goop’s second annual Sex Issue was released today. Gwyneth Paltrow must have been listening when everyone read last year’s issue and muttered “I’ll tell you where you can stick that $ 15,000 dildo“, because this year she’s talking anal, the hetero kind.
Goop interviewed a psychoanalyst named Paul Joannides for a piece called Reality Check: Anal Sex, the purpose of which is to educate about anal. Here are just a few of Goop’s tips:
– Practice teaching your sphincter muscles to relax – Use lots of lube – Don’t have anal while drunk or stoned – If the dick hurts, use a lubed-up finger
Good luck with Step #1, Gwyneth. The second Tracy Anderson hears that one of your muscle groups have gone soft, she’s going to throw a fit.
Goop also asks Paul about enemas and what people should be teaching their kids about anal. He says there are more-important conversations to have, like talking about masturbation and exploring while learning. As for the enema thing, Paul is on the fence and says it’s an either/or situation. Tsk tsk tsk Paul, that is NOT the answer Gwyneth wants to hear. You’re supposed to say yes, everyone should pregame with an enema. Specifically Gwyneth’s personal favorite, a $ 130 Danish-made ecologically sustainable rubber enema bulb and $ 98 bottle of organic Hawaiian onyx salt solution.
