reunites with kris kristofferson

Fans of the 1976 movie version of A Star Is Born saw their ageless and evergreen memories come to life when co-stars Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson sang together in public for the first time at London’s Hyde Park on July 7. Each performed separately at the British Summer Time festival, and during her set, Barbra called Kris out onstage to join her. “Here’s a song that we sang together in the movie, right?” Barbra, 77, said as the music began to play for “Lost Inside of You,” which she wrote with Leon Russell for the film’s original soundtrack. “Oh, I love this song!” Though they clashed on set (“Filming with Barbra Streisand is an experience that may have cured me of the movies,” Kris quipped), they’ve become friends since.…

how barbara walters inspired the cbs anchor

WHEN SHE TOOK OVER the CBS Evening News on July 15, Norah O’Donnell became the third woman to anchor the broadcast, after Connie Chung (who shared the desk with Dan Rather) and Katie Couric. But the newswoman, 45, says she owes her greatest debt to the first woman who ever anchored a nightly news broadcast, Barbara Walters, who co-hosted the ABC Evening News with Harry Reasoner in 1976. “In looking back, I realized the most powerful woman I saw portrayed was a woman in media, Barbara Walters, and I think that’s what led me to that field,” Norah said at the WrapWomen 2019 Power Women Breakfast in NYC on July 9. “Barbara Walters was a woman of the world, interviewing the most powerful people in the world. That attracted me.”…

returns to acting, thanks to her son

SHE HASN’T MADE A MOVIE in a decade, but Sophia Loren is stepping in front of the camera again — and it’s a family affair. The 84-year-old legend will star in The Life Ahead, a drama directed by her son, Edoardo Ponti, 46. “He will only move on to the next shot when I hit my deepest truth,” raves Sophia of Edoardo, who directed her in two previous films. The latest is about a Holocaust survivor who bonds with a 12-year-old Senegalese immigrant boy. “They are cut from the same cloth of pain, and having been brought up in the streets,” says Edoardo. It could earn Sophia a second Oscar (she won for 1961’s Two Women). “At 84 she wants to put it all on the line to make a…

sandra bullock what i’ve learned at 55

With her girlish good looks and spunky charm, it’s hard to believe Sandra Bullock will turn 55 on July 26 — even for her. “After a while, you have no idea how old you are because you’ve lied so many times,” she quips. As she marks the milestone birthday, Sandra has many reasons to be thankful. Most important are her son Louis, 9, and daughter Laila, 7. “I finally realize, Oh, this is what I was supposed to do when I grew up,” Sandra says. “Not to be an actress — to be a mom. This is my purpose.” Getting to this moment of clarity hasn’t always been easy. Sandra endured a painful, public divorce from ex-husband Jesse James (who admitted to infidelity) in 2010. “My life took a trajectory that wasn’t…
