"Don’t buy into the idea that women aren’t strong enough to do anything they want on their own." Happy 73rd birthday to the ever-astonishing, one and only @Cher! 🌹
"I'm convinced that we Black women possess a special indestructible strength that allows us to not only get down, but to get up, to get through, and to get over." Happy birthday to the wondrous, resilient, and inspiring Janet Jackson! 👑
"A portrait is not a likeness. The moment an emotion or fact is transformed into a photograph it is no longer a fact but an opinion. There is no such thing as inaccuracy in a photograph. All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth." On Richard Avedon's birthday, here are portraits by the late, brilliant, and singular photographer of Sophia Loren, Louis Armstrong, Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin, Katharine Hepburn, members of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), @BarbraStreisand, Muddy Waters, and Avedon himself. 💛
“When you direct, it is the only time you get to have the world exactly how you want it. My movies are very close to what I set out to do. And I’m super-opinionated about what I do and don’t like.” Happy birthday to Sofia Coppola, one of cinema's brightest and most distinctive voices and visualists! 💕
"Someone might have a germ of talent, but 90 percent of it is discipline and how you practice it, what you do with it. Instinct won't carry you through the entire journey. It's what you do in the moments between inspiration." Happy birthday to the glorious goddess Cate Blanchett!
"It's up to to you to perfect that gift that you've been given. Put your spirit into that song. Focus on the words that you are singing. Get into the experience that you are singing about and sing your heart out." Happy 69th birthday to Stevie Wonder, a singer, star, and king! ✨

Crowe was joined by @CanyonJim and iconic stars @IoneSkyeLee and @JohnCusack (via Skype from Chicago) to reminisce about making their cinematic touchstone, touching upon everything from the invaluable contributions of the late, great John Mahoney to the fact that, thanks to Cusack himself, we've apparently been mispronouncing Lloyd Dobler's name this whole time.

Last night at #Tribeca2019, friends and comedic masterminds @SarahKateSilverman and Mike @Birbigs meditated on their unique storytelling careers in comedy and beyond as part of Tribeca Talks. The versatile Silverman reflected on how the darkness of her atypical and deeply affecting dramatic turn in 2015’s I SMILE BACK was surprisingly hard to shake, revealed that her pal Tig Notaro taught her to appreciate herself and steer clear of the narcissistic habit of self-deprecation, and announced that the long-awaited musical adaptation of her 2010 memoir THE BEDWETTER will arrive on stage within the year at @AtlanticTheater Company. Birbiglia talked about how painfully relatable Martin Scorsese’s underrated 1983 masterpiece THE KING OF COMEDY remains, which caused Silverman to bust out her—how shall we put this?—interesting De Niro impression. We’ll allow it. // Photos by @LenaNYCPhoto

"I worry from the moment I take a job. I worry about how I'm going to do it, if I can do it. Then I walk on set, the director says, 'roll,' and all of a sudden all of it disappears and it's all happening, and I relax, and I’m doing what I do." Happy 82nd birthday to Jack Nicholson, a singular and irresistible cinematic legend. ✨ 😎 💛

Debuting at #Tribeca2019 and based on the film of the same name that won Best Documentary at our Festival in 2013, @A24's forthcoming THE KILL TEAM finds filmmaker Dan Krauss returning to direct the narrative version of the story he first brought to the screen. Set in 2010, Private Andrew Briggman (Nat Wolff) is an ambitious infantryman recently sent to Afghanistan. He strives to stand out among the frequently wild but seemingly lovable and loyal brothers of his platoon. When the leader of their group is suddenly replaced, Andrew finds inspiration in the arrival of a new officer in charge, an implacable yet clearly perceptive soldier (Alexander Skarsgård) who inspires with a confident but often frightening air. As Briggman attempts to find his place as a second-in-command, he senses that his team is not working cohesively for the greater good and, instead, nefarious things might be happening just under his nose. Not wanting to appear paranoid or defying the orders of his superior, Briggman must choose between reporting his suspicions to authorities—putting his own life immediately in danger—or silently participating in what might be truly shocking crimes. In his intense and incredible combat drama, Krauss expertly directs a talented group of actors who authentically and faithfully portray these real-life figures involved with the infamous Maywand District Murders. Wolff and Skarsgård, in particular, deliver career-best turns in this riveting, rage-inducing meditation on the moral costs of warfare. Do not miss its world premiere on Saturday, April 27th at Tribeca. Tickets are available now through the link in our profile!

Join them! Tickets are available now through the link in our profile.
"Imagination means nothing without doing." Charlie Chaplin, one of the most exciting, creative, and formative screen stars of all time, whose artistry is the eternal criterion to which all comic actors have been judge, was born on this day in 1889.
