gemma chan: the 7 products i can’t live without

Body Lotion “My skin gets quite dry. I’ve tried loads of body moisturizers, and I always come back to this one. It’s my favorite.” Facial Contouring Device “This is a bit pricey, but I think of it as an investment. It gets the blood flowing and encourages [toning of] your facial muscles.” Lip Color “Putting on a bright lipstick is such a great way to lift your mood. I like this classic, punchy red.” Candle “I love this fig-scented candle: it’s not too overpowering or too sweet.” Fragrance “I know perfumes smell different on everyone, but I find this one works really well for me.

bodybuilder chris ruden: overcoming my biggest fear

‘Everyone has the potential to improve their quality of life’—CHRIS RUDEN Chris Ruden wasn’t sure what to expect on that afternoon in 2017 when he sat down to tape a 13-minute YouTube video revealing his deepest insecurity to the world. Born with a congenital birth defect that had left him with a short left arm and only two fingers on his left hand, Ruden, 30, had spent years hiding his hand in a glove while building a career as a powerlifter. Suddenly he was forcing himself to do the one thing that had terrified him all his life. “Even my [then] girlfriend had never seen my hand,” recalls Ruden, whose video soon went viral. “It was the scariest thing I’ve ever done. But sometimes you’ve got to make yourself uncomfortable to…

p!nk: ‘i’m pretty normal in a weird way!’

Pink, like every mom, had to pivot when the coronavirus pandemic brought the world to a record-scratching stop. “For us it was like, the kids are going to be home all the time, we can’t go anywhere, and we have to try not to get sick—but then we did,” says the pop star, who, along with her 4-year-old son Jameson, battled COVID-19 last spring. For 12 weeks “we were really, really sick, and it was dicey,” adds Pink, 41, who was so concerned about her condition that she rewrote her will while battling the virus. “It was really scary.” Once she recovered, the pop star—known for her empowering anthems and high-flying performances—tackled a new role: teacher. “I started making all these color-coded charts. From 9 to 10 we’re doing art.…

stars speak out against the golden globe awards

Scarlett Johansson and Tom Cruise are the latest stars to take a stand against the Hollywood Foreign Press Association—the insular group of 80-plus journalists who vote on the Golden Globes—after allegations of ethical lapses and a startling lack of diversity. The group acknowledged it has no Black members. Now many in Hollywood are demanding more reform than the HFPA has promised. “It is time that we take a step back from the HFPA,” said Johansson, who also called out “sexist” treatment from its members. On May 10 NBC announced it would no longer air the 2022 awards. That same day, Tom Cruise returned his three Globes as a sign of solidarity. Says a Hollywood source: “It starts to restore one’s faith in the industry when you see so many come…
