‘It’s almost like getting hit by lightning twice.’ —PATTON OSWALT, on marrying again after his first wife’s death, to NPR ‘It’s hard for me to think of myself at this age, but I’m doing everything I wanted to do. I’m living in the South of France, 99 percent of my life is devoted to my causes and my kids are grown.’ —PAMELA ANDERSON, on life at 50, to Today ‘It actually kind of repaired certain parts of our relationship that had been fractured from our marriage and our divorce, and it kind of made us friends again.’ —JENNIFER LOPEZ, on working with ex-husband Marc Anthony after their split, during Spotify’s ¡Viva Latino! podcast ‘I auditioned with Matthew: Isn’t that weird? It just wouldn’t have been the whole “Jack and Rose, Kate and Leo” thing.’ —KATE WINSLET, revealing…

Do you believe in psychics or mediums? I kind of do. There’s a great deal about our universe and existence that we simply do not understand. Did you do any research for your role? Nothing in particular, but I’ve gone to psychics. I’m Indian, so I certainly grew up with a sense of the otherworldly mysteries of psychics and ghosts and goblins; it was just part of our cultural inheritance. You’re a newlywed. What was the best part about your wedding to Shaifali Puri? The bizarre part is you’re shuttled around and starving. But I got to ride a horse down Peachtree Street in downtown Atlanta with hundreds of people dancing in the street. That was super fun. What makes you happy? Gosh, I think sugar. I try to limit it. I try! If I go down…

editor’s letter

It was a year of soul-searching that began with the Women’s March in January and ended with the firing of Matt Lauer, the latest in a long line of men suddenly and rightfully held accountable for sexual misconduct. In the span of a few months, the chorus of voices speaking out against sexual harassment and assault had toppled a garbage heap full of icons—Bill O’Reilly, Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey (the list goes on)—and caused a national reckoning about the way we treat each other. On a much lighter note, we also ended the year with the delightful engagement of Prince Harry to Meghan Markle; if you’re the editor of People, you really couldn’t ask for a better gift than that. In our year-end issue we once again look back at…

‘They’re both beaming! I’m so happy for them’ Gail Mather via people.com Prince Harry and Meghan Markle I’m so excited for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and their upcoming nuptials. They’re a modern kind of royalty, which I believe will bring the monarchy to an all-new level. They look so happy together, and I know Princess Diana is looking down on them with admiration. Meghan is good for Harry—she’ll keep him grounded. She is welcomed by the Brits with open arms. Judy Young via e-mail The worthy prince has finally met his princess. And he’ll make a terrific father!! A happily-ever-after story. Marlene Soquet via e-mail The handsome, kind prince and his lovely lady. They’re truly beautiful human beings inside and out. I wish them happiness and love. Rosi Guastella via people.com Meghan McCain I love that her father, Sen.…

greg louganis finds his mom

When Greg Louganis, 57, first submitted his DNA to ancestry.com in late 2016—and confirmed the identity of his birth father, Fouvale Lutu (People, Aug. 28, 2017)—the Olympic diver never thought he’d find his birth mother as well. Then in May, Louganis, who was given up for adoption at birth, heard from a woman via ancestry.com who told him, “I think you might be my aunt’s son.” On Mother’s Day he called his mom, retired medical assistant Cynthia Harris, 73, for the first time. (She and Lutu had lost touch decades ago.) After nearly 58 years apart, they spent Thanksgiving together at Harris’s home. They shared photos from their pasts, but, says Louganis, who plans to walk Harris down the aisle at her younger son’s 2018 wedding, “I’m about the present.…
