Blake Lively on Harvey Weinstein Allegations: “It’s important that we don’t stand for this”

Posted on 2 min read 46 views

As allegations of sexual harassment by Harvey Weinstein continue to surface, actress Blake Lively has commented on the allegations, stating that she wasn’t aware of the rumours about Harvey’s actions before the allegations surfaced.

Blake opened up about the allegations to The Hollywood Reporter during a press conference this week for her new movie All I See Is You, saying:

“That was never my experience with Harvey in any way whatsoever, and I think that if people heard these stories … I do believe in humanity enough to think that this wouldn’t have just continued.” she said. “I never heard any stories like this — I never heard anything specific — but it’s devastating to hear.”

Blake went on to talk about the importance of taking these allegations seriously, saying:

“The number one thing that can happen is that people who share their stories, people have to listen to them and trust them, and people have to take it seriously,” she said. “As important as it is to remain furious about this, it’s important to also say that this exists everywhere so remember to look everywhere. This isn’t a single incident. This cannot happen, this should not happen, and it happens in every single industry.”

“It happens to women all over the place, all the time, to the point where women don’t even think that this is a real assault,” Blake continued. “I’ve had plenty of things happen to me whether it be trying on a dress for prom at some clothing store, to a director being inappropriate, to a guy walking down the street where you don’t think, ‘Oh well, that wasn’t actually sexual assault — this guy just, like, grabbed my butt.'”

“It’s important that women are furious right now. It’s important that there is an uprising. It’s important that we don’t stand for this and that we don’t focus on one or two or three or four stories, it’s important that we focus on humanity in general and say, ‘This is unacceptable.'”

Liam also revealed that Bear will soon be talking, saying:

“He’s getting at the words to ‘dada’. He’s getting there. Often I’ve found is it comes first. I kinda wish it was ‘mama’ cause obviously she [Cheryl] spends a lot of time with him and she birthed him.”

Zac Efron and Dylan Efron take an epic road trip for Columbia’s ‘Tested Tough’ Series

Posted on 2 min read 59 views

Zac Efron and his brother Dylan Efron hit the road this summer for Tested Tough series, as they tested out some of Columbia’s gear out in the wilderness as they embarked on an adventure to Glacier National Park.

Columbia just released their official ‘Tested Tough’ video, check it out:

Zac also recently spoke to Outside Online about his adventure, dishing on how he and Dylan have always loved the outdoors.

“It’s always been in our blood,” Zac said. “We’ve done it since we were young. That’s the only way we could have fun. We didn’t really have amusement parks or anything. We would go to the beach or head inland to a couple of spots where there are hikes to waterfalls or hot springs and that kind of stuff. It’s kind of a gem, where we grew up. We found the most epic cliff jumps the other day. It was beautiful.”

As for their dynamic when exploring the outdoors, Zac said: “I mean, it’s me keeping up with him. That’s what it is usually. But it’s fun because he pushes the limits and so do I in other ways. I’ll be the first one to test the water and see if it’s deep enough on a cliff jump. But he’s the one to start a fire or make sure we’re staying on course.”

Zac also opened up on why he loves the outdoors, saying: “You just go back to being real. The city is sucked out of you. You can get in these little bickering fights on the road and they’re over in two seconds and that’s just the way it is. You have to stick together. You’re stuck with one another when you’re out on a trip like that. So you work through your issues. We probably learned more about each other in four days on the road than we did in a whole month just chilling at home.”

Julianne Hough Talks Married Life, Keeping Healthy in Health Magazine

Posted on 5 min read 71 views

Dancer/Actress Julianne Hough is featured on the newest issue of Health Magazine, where she dishes on married life, how she stays healthy, and about her endometriosis.

Julianne took to her Instagram to write about her new cover, saying: “Thank you @healthmagazine making me this months cover girl! I had an absolute blast. I also can’t thank you enough for talking openly about endometriosis so that we can all get in the know about #MeInEndo !
Check out the magazine that hits stands this week to see the rest of the photoshoot and read my own story about #endometriosis xoxo Jules #healthmagazine #mpgsport #mpgbyjules”

Check out some of Julianne’s interview below!


On Married Life:

“I feel so much more sexy,” she says. “It’s so awesome. I love being married so much.”

“I’ve always wanted to be married and be a mom and have kids, but to be honest, all of that scared the s— out of me. I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, to actually be married and committed to somebody, that just seems so grown-up.’ But the first thing that I felt when we got married was, ‘This is the complete opposite of scary. This is like home.'”

Julianne Hough for Health Magazine's November 2017 issue

On Working with a Trainer:

“I do, but I change it up. It’s not one specific trainer who does everything. I work with a trainer at Body by Simone or one at Tracy Anderson, or I’ll do SoulCycle or CorePower Yoga with different trainers. I’m a dancer, so I remember different combinations, so I’ll sometimes take what I’ve learned in classes and make my own workout.”

On her least favourite workout move:

“Oh my goodness. You know those sliding round disks where you put one foot there and you do your inner thighs, or you’re crossing behind? Anything to do with inner or outer thighs—that’s my struggle point, so I’m always trying to work on that part of my body. I love doing abs and I love doing arms, so legs are always the hardest for me. But they’re the most rewarding.”

Julianne Hough for Health Magazine's November 2017 issue

On how she stays healthy:

“Me time. If I don’t have my space for an hour, I feel overwhelmed and I need to just chill. That can be having a cup of tea by myself outside, going and getting gas—it doesn’t matter; I just need some time every day where I can think and put myself in a good place. I always try to wake up and think about three things that I’m grateful for: something that has happened already, something I’m currently grateful for, and something that I’m wanting that I can achieve that day.”

On her morning routine:

“I always wake up and we make fresh juices. It’s mainly kale, cucumber, spinach, sometimes beets, celery, lemon, ginger. For sweetness we’ll do apple or carrots. I have half a protein shake before I work out because I need a little bit of energy, but I’m one of those people who can’t have a full breakfast. Brooks can have, like, a tub of oatmeal, and I’m like, ‘I would throw up.’ When I finish the workout, I finish the protein shake. Then I come home and have a bowl of oatmeal and berries or something like that.”

Julianne Hough for Health Magazine's November 2017 issue

On if she has bad days:

“Oh my gosh, totally. And that’s the thing—I do try to stay as positive as possible, and people always comment on that, but I also work at it. It’s not that I’m, like, Miss Positive perfect girl, wake up and everything’s sunshine and rainbows.

“No, I have my days for sure. The other day, I was having a major endometriosis “episode” is what I call them, and I was just quiet. We went to the beach, and it was fine, but I wasn’t active. I didn’t want to play Spikeball and I didn’t want to play Frisbee, and later, Brooks was like, “Hey, are you OK?” I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m just not feeling very good.’ He was like, ‘Oh, I just thought you were in a bad mood. You need to tell me that because I don’t know.’ So, trust me, I have my days. Sometimes I don’t want to work out, and so sometimes I don’t. Sometimes I’m just like, ‘I deserve a day off—I’m fine.’ But sometimes I’m like, ‘No, come on, I know I’m gonna feel better afterward.’ The end result is always the best. There’s never been a time I’ve finished a workout and been like, ‘I totally regret doing that.'”

Julianne Hough for Health Magazine's November 2017 issue

On when she realized she has endometriosis:

“I thought I was just like every other girl—getting her period and having cramps. I’d see my mom and my sisters all have bad cramps, but being a dancer, I was like, ‘I’m fine. I’m a tough cookie.’ I remember moving to L.A. when I was 18, and my roommate had endo, and I was like, ‘Well, that sounds too medical, and I have no idea what that means. It’s over my head.’ But then I saw her and was like, ‘That looks like the kind of pain that I have.’ Again, I didn’t care because I was 18. Then I was on Dancing, during one of my last seasons as a dancer, and all of a sudden while I was dancing, something happened and I just doubled over. They cut to commercial, and my mom was in the audience that day, so she’s like, ‘You’re going to the hospital. I don’t care what you say.’ It took so long to figure out what was going on. Finally one doctor said, “I think you might have endometriosis, and it looks pretty bad.’ I needed surgery—I had it everywhere, to the point that they took my appendix out because it was so bad.”

Julianne Hough for Health Magazine's November 2017 issue

On what helps her pain:

“A hot bath. I have a hot water bottle that I call the boiling baby, and I sleep with it and put it next to me. Also, stretching and almost breaking a little bit of a sweat. You don’t have to, like, go for a run, but just getting my heart rate up helps with the blood flow.”
