Joshua Jackson Makes His First Red Carpet Appearance After Those Diane Kruger Cheating Rumors

January 21st, 2016 // Leave a Comment

And the question still remains, “Are they still together or aren’t they?”

Joshua Jackson hit the red carpet in New York City last night at the photocall of his new off-Broadway play, Smart People. Side note: I think I prefer Joshua Jackson with a beard.

It was a co-stars only affair, so there really would have been no reason for Joshua’s long time partner, Diane Kruger to be there. But again, was she not there because it was just a photocall? Or are she and Joshua in a cooling off period?  Read More »

December 2nd, 2015 // Leave a Comment

I totally approve of GQ magazine’s 2015 list of stellar breakout stars.

There’s Rami Malek, best known as Ahkmenrah in the Night at the Museum movies, who totally nails it as a hacker vigilante with social issues in the new hit USA Network show Mr. Robot.

And Brie Larson, of 21 Jump Street fame, who turns in an unbelievably heart-wrenching – and Oscar worthy – performance in this year’s indie darling Room, playing a young woman kept captive and trying to raise her son in a small room. Read More »

Laura Benanti

Theater fans may know her from her Tony Award winning performance as Gypsy Rose Lee in the critically acclaimed 2008 Broadway revival of Gypsy or one of her other memorable stage performances in Swing!, Into the Woods, The Wedding Singer and Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (among others).

Television fans may know her from the (unfortunately short-lived) sitcom Go On or her recent turn as country music superstar Sadie Stone on Nashville. Regardless of where you may have seen her before, Laura Benanti is sure to join the list of performers who earned EGOT status!

This busy actress, soon to be seen again on the small screen as Supergirl‘s mother on the new CBS series (debuting on Monday, October 26) took some time out of her busy schedule (in addition to her acting duties, she still performs live, if you’re in the New Jersey area, you can catch her at the NJPAC on November 21) to chat with Socialite Life. In addition to reminiscing about her past (and sharing her favorite roles), learn a little more about what makes this talented singer and actress truly “super”!  Read More »

Get Ready For A Fantastic Weekend With The Absolute Perfection That Is Carol Channing

October 9th, 2015 // Leave a Comment

This, you guys! This is how you live life when you’re 94. You live life like Carol Channing.

Socialite Life‘s favorite photographer Michael Freeby was lucky enough to hang out with the icon and photograph her for Kids Beating Cancer. If you’ve forgotten, that’s the organization “that covers the costs of life-saving surgeries for children who otherwise couldn’t afford them – with many surgeries performed in-house at their Kids Beating Cancer Pediatric Marrow Transplant Center.”

They do amazing work and we get to appreciate Carol Channing. Fabulous!  Read More »

You may not immediately recognize the name Judy Kuhn, but you’re sure to remember her voice.

The gala, a benefit the Women’s Association of NJPAC, is being held on October 3rd at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark.

Well glad to see these two are still going strong.

Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black hit the red carpet in London for an evening of theatre at the opening night of Kinky Boots. They didn’t get as matchy matchy as we’ve seen them be before, which kind of made me sad. Remember the double denim date? That was one of my favorites.

But they did pose with international treasure Cyndi Lauper (she wrote the music for Kinky Boots), so I guess that makes up for it.  Read More »
