What’s the best part about working with Hugh Grant in this film? Hugh is absolutely hilarious. When he was filming, he was improvising, and we were in fits of laughter. Why do you think Paddington’s story resonates with people? I think it’s about being different and about being accepted. Also, the animation of the bear is amazing. The expression in his eyes is so moving. What films did you love watching with your daughter [Maisie, now 29] when she was a young girl? I remember seeing The Jungle Book and The Hunchback of Notre Dame and her crying her eyes out when he was being stoned. What do you enjoy doing when you are not working? My husband [Grant Roffey] and I live on an organic farm. We have cattle, sheep, chickens and pigs. It’s a great…

hooray for hollywood!

Before this year’s Golden Globes, designers— and viewers—were surprised by the decision of just about every actress in Hollywood to walk the red carpet in a single color: black. The idea was to show solidarity among women and to kick off a larger movement called Time’s Up, which aims to fight sexual harassment, assault and inequality, not only for women in Hollywood but for less privileged victims far beyond the 90210 zip code. Of course there was some eye-rolling at the notion of celebrities “fighting back” by wearing $20,000 gowns. But in truth, no one taking part saw the blackout as a solution, and no one claimed to be making a sacrifice. They were simply making a statement. And as part of a strategy meant to raise awareness, drive conversation,…

a powerful night

The Golden Globes have always been renowned as Hollywood’s wildest party. Yet as the celebrities began to arrive for the 75th annual ceremony on Jan. 8 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in L.A., there was a different kind of celebratory energy in the air. For the first major awards show since sexual-harassment scandals swept show business, the nominees and presenters from TV and film chose to focus on change. Attendees wore black to promote the Time’s Up campaign, an initiative to help further the #MeToo movement and fight sexual harassment and assault in the entertainment industry and beyond. “I think wearing black in solidarity is one step,” said Oprah Winfrey, who became the first African-American woman to receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award. “It’s very important that it not just…

oprah for president?

In her passionate acceptance speech for the lifetime-achievement honor, Oprah Winfrey proclaimed that “a new day is on the horizon!” Intended as an inspirational message for a night focused on women’s rights, the speech instead started a tsunami of speculation about the mogul, 63, running for President in 2020. On social media #Oprah2020 trended. Her partner Stedman Graham told the Los Angeles Times, “It’s up to the people. She would absolutely do it.” The next day cable news buzzed, and the Washington Post and New York Times weighed in about a possible Winfrey candidacy. In the past Winfrey has discounted any political aspirations, telling pal Gayle King on CBS This Morning in October, “There will be no running for office of any kind for me.” When asked about the current speculation,…
