Chris Pratt and Anna Faris Sell the Los Angeles House They Lived in Before Their Divorce

Published

on

They’ve moved out and moved on. Chris Pratt and Anna Faris sold the Los Angeles home they shared while married nearly two years after finalizing their divorce, Us Weekly can confirm.

The now-exes purchased the four-bedroom, four-bathroom house in March 2013 for $3.3 million. They sold the 4,710-square-foot property on September 2 for $4.75 million.

The Mediterranean-style home was built in 1979 and is located in the Hollywood Hills West neighborhood of L.A. It features a pool, tennis court, professional gym, chef’s kitchen and formal living and dining rooms. Pratt, 41, and Faris, 43, had also remodeled the space in recent years.

The pair, who share 8-year-old son Jack, announced their separation in August 2017 after eight years of marriage. They finalized their divorce in November 2018.

Faris and Pratt agreed in their divorce settlement to live within five miles of each other until Jack completes sixth grade.

The Mom alum opened up in January 2018 about coparenting with the Guardians of the Galaxy star. “I think it’s just the general idea of just making sure that [Jack’s] surrounded by a lot of love and happiness and we’re really good at that and we have amazing friends and incredible family and we have like just the most amazing resources to make sure that he feels safe and protected and happy and so far he is,” she exclusively told Us at the time. “He’s pretty hysterical.”

The former couple have since moved on. Pratt married Katherine Schwarzenegger in June 2019, and they welcomed daughter Lyla in August. As for Faris, she confirmed her engagement to Michael Barrett in February after being spotted with a new ring on her left hand in November 2019.

The Jurassic World star has a new outlook on life following his divorce. “Chris was very insecure about himself before he started dating Katherine,” a source told Us in March. “He never felt ‘good enough’ for Anna Faris, and then when their relationship started to go downward, he was angry and not liking who he was.”

However, Schwarzenegger, 30, helped him overcome his doubts. “Katherine really changed all of that and Chris has a much healthier self-image now,” the insider said. “He goes out with friends more and is overall just much happier. Chris is much more laid-back with Katherine and is so comfortable and happy.”

Beyoncé and Blue Ivy’s Wearable Art Gala Virtual Appearance

Published

Beyoncé might be a global superstar and a powerhouse businesswoman, but even she’s susceptible to familial critiques. On Sept. 19, the 39-year-old singer made a special appearance at the virtual Wearable Art Gala — organized by her mother, Tina Lawson — to partake in the event’s “Corny Joke Time” bit. The segment required celebrity guests to tell cringeworthy quips throughout the event, which also hosted an art auction to help support Los Angeles creatives and families affected by COVID-19.

In Beyoncé’s video, shared by Tina’s Waco Theater company on Instagram, the “Black Parade” singer first tells her joke while sporting a casual, makeup-free look. “Why does Snoop Dogg need an umbrella? For drizzle,” she says before daughter Blue Ivy playfully calls her out for speaking a certain way. “Mom, the voice, no,” the 8-year-old jokes. The clip then plays an audio message from Tina who asks Beyoncé to zhuzh things up. “Hi, Bey. I really appreciate you doing the joke because I know how busy you are,” she says. “But will you just put on some makeup, get in some good light and stuff because . . . it’s the gala, girl!” The video cuts back to a fully glammed up Bey who repeats her corny joke without any objections from Blue.

Other stars who took part in the segment included Yara Shahidi, Marsai Martin, Kerry Washington, and Issa Rae, as well as Beyoncé’s sister, Solange, who told Tina’s favorite joke of the night. Look ahead to watch the Knowles sisters show off their comical sides, then check out the entire virtual Wearable Art Gala live-stream!

Emmy flashback 25 years to 1995: 1st wins for Julianna Margulies, Glenn Close; series wins for ‘NYPD Blue,’ ‘Frasier’

Published

“Frasier.” “Friends.” “ER.” “The X-Files.” It’s amazing how just the mention of a TV show can take you back in time, and with this list it’s no surprise that we’re offering our flashback 25 years to 1995, remembering the 47th Emmy Awards. It was a night with no one big winner among several now-classic series, a new EGOT recipient, some sentimental moments and a memorable homage to TV theme songs. Jason Alexander of “Seinfeld” and Cybill Shepherd of “Cybill” led the festivities on September 10.

Perennial favorite “Frasier” held on to its title of Best Comedy Series for the second year, a streak it would continue until 1999, winning for each of its first five seasons. It beat out popular sitcoms “The Larry Sanders Show,” “Mad About You,” “Seinfeld” and newcomer “Friends.” Kelsey Grammer won his second of four Best Comedy Actor Emmys for playing the title character, while his onscreen brother, played by David Hyde Pierce, won his first of four in the supporting category. The Supporting Actress winner was also a first-timer, as Christine Baranski won her first and only trophy for her work on “Cybill,” although she has received 13 more nominations for various series through the years. The Best Comedy Actress winner, however, was the won to beat for several years, and concluded her reign at this ceremony.

Candice Bergen won her fifth Emmy in seven years for her work on the groundbreaking series “Murphy Brown,” making her the third performer to win five Emmys for playing the same character. This would be her final win for “Murphy,” as Bergen declined to submit herself for consideration during the show’s final three seasons, as she felt she had been won enough for that show. This remains Bergen’s last Emmy to date, although she did receive two nominations for her work on “Boston Legal.”

Not only was it a year for stellar comedies, but there was also stiff competition on the drama side. “NYPD Blue” won its only award for Best Drama Series after a stunning loss the previous year. It was for the second season, beating out “Chicago Hope,” “Law and Order,” “The X-Files” and newcomer “ER,” which garnered 15 nominations but few wins (it was the overwhelming favorite in several). This situation mirrored the year before, when “NYPD Blue” received 19 major nominations in its freshman season, but lost the big prize. Oddly enough, the next year, “ER” would win its one and only trophy for Best Drama for its second season.

Despite six acting nominations, the only performer from “ER” who took a statue home that night was Julianna Margulies for Best Drama Supporting Actress. Mandy Patinkin took home the prize for Best Drama Actor for “Chicago Hope,” which was his first of seven nominations and his only win to date. “Picket Fences” snagged two acting trophies, with wins for Kathy Baker as Best Drama Actress and Ray Walston for Best Drama Supporting Actor. Octogenarian and veteran actor Walston declared, “I have 30 seconds to tell you I have been waiting 60 years to get on this stage.” Both Baker and Walston would repeat their wins the next year.

One big winner of the evening was “Barbra: The Concert,” which was named Best Variety, Music or Comedy Special. Barbra Streisand also won for her performance, and her longtime collaborator Marvin Hamlisch accomplished a rare feat. The acclaimed composer won his first two of four Emmys that night, becoming the sixth EGOT recipient (there are now 16). Furthermore, in addition to his Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Awards, he had also won a Pulitzer Prize, giving him the extremely rare PEGOT status.

One actress got halfway to an EGOT that evening. Glenn Close won her first of three Emmys to add to her three Tonys, this time for Best Movie/Mini Actress for her role in “Serving in Silence: The Margarethe Cammermeyer Story.” Almost a year after his death, Raul Julia won the Best Actor prize in that category for HBO’s “The Burning Season.”

Another highlight of the evening had Alexander showing off his various talents with a six-minute mash-up of some of the all-time greatest theme songs, including “Green Acres,” “All In the Family,” “The Jeffersons” and “Gilligan’s Island.” He finished with a blend of two of the best, seamlessly weaving lyrics from “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and “Cheers.”

Bruce Springsteen Revisiting “Lost Albums” For New Archival Release

Published

on

By

Next month, Bruce Springsteen is releasing a new album, Letter To You. Three of the songs on the album date back to the ’70s, and in a new feature with Rolling Stone, Springsteen said that he rediscovered those tracks while going through his archives for a planned follow-up to his 1998 collection Tracks. Those archives contain various “lost albums” and other outtakes. The existence of a new archival Springsteen box set has been rumored for a while now, but this is the first time that Springsteen has confirmed it publicly.

“There’s a lot of really good music left,” he said in the interview. “You just go back there. It’s not that hard. If I pull out something from 1980, or 1985, or 1970, it’s amazing how you can slip into that voice. It’s just sort of a headspace. All of those voices remain available to me, if I want to go to them.”

The E Street Band drummer Max Weinberg told Rolling Stone that over the last few years he’s overdubbed at least 40 old songs in the studio. “Any other artist would kill to get these songs,” he noted.

Elsewhere in the profile, Springsteen talks about politics, something he’s been using his SiriusXM radio show to address over the last few months. “The power of the American idea has been abandoned. It’s a terrible shame, and we need somebody who can bring that to life again,” he said. “I think if we get Joe Biden, it’s gonna go a long way towards helping us regain our status around the world. The country as the shining light of democracy has been trashed by the administration. We abandoned friends, we befriended dictators, we denied climate science.”
