Étonnez-moi: Spring Reading

Friday, June 16th, 2017

My dear friend Maggie Shipstead has a new novel out –Astonish Me– and it’s so ravishing I didn’t even rewatch Frozen on my flight to LA and instead ripped through my galley in a six-hour head rush of literary gorgeousness.New York in the 70’s. Soviet defection. Sex, drugs, ballet. But what Maggie really nails, in a brutal, Didonesque way, is the complexity of female friendship and rivalry. And the physical sacrifice for sport, emotional sacrifice for art. My favorite book of the spring.Also, recently: Rachel Kushner’s superb The Flamethrowers. I swam the length with my breath held and emerged a little light-headed on the other side. Motorcycle racing, New York and Rome in the mid-70’s, A Judd-and-Flavin-like crew downtown having dinner parties, affairs. Also a book about physical and emotional lengths and WOMENS.What are you reading? What’s good? Maggie told me I need to read Americanah by Chimamanda Adichie. Also have The Collected Stories of Lydia Davis on my bedside (which is by the way the EXACT color of the asbestos shingles on Flat Top). I’m deep into Siri Hustvedt’s The Blazing World and finding it equal parts chorish and dazzling. More women-in-art, women-making-art, women-suffering-art. DO YOU SEE A THEME HERE?Hopie and I leave for India in a week. P. and Dolly (and Hopie and Block Shop) and I are ALL moving to Los Angeles in a month. After years of searching, I finally found a pencil cholla in bloom on our last trip to Joshua Tree. That’s the latest, now what are you reading?

Scarlett Johansson Brought 72-Year-Old Doppelganger as Date to “Rough Night” Premiere

Wednesday, June 14th, 2017

Joining the ranks of Gigi Hadid and the Kardashians, Scarlett Johansson also has an uncanny look-alike—except hers is 72 years old. If you’re confused, let us jog your memory.

A woman named Geraldine sent the Internet into a frenzy in April after a photo emerged of her looking identical to the 32-year-old actress. However, instead of Geraldine being around Johansson’s age, she was actually 40 years her senior—and a grandma.

Catching wind of her supposed doppelganger, Johansson decided to check out the pic herself, and was probably just as impressed as us by how much young Geraldine looked like her. She was evidently so impressed that she created a video, calling out for the mysterious Geraldine and inviting her to the premiere of her new movie, “Rough Night” in June. Well, June rolled around, and turns out, the invitation was accepted.

The A-list actress kept good on her promise and brought the grandma look-alike to the New York premiere of “Rough Night” last night, and the two looked like the cutest new friends.

The 72-year-old accompanied ScarJo on the red carpet as the two posed for pictures while holding up adorable bedazzled “Hello, my name is” clutches. Johansson held up a blue one with the name “Geraldine” while her twin sported a red version with the name “Scarlett.”
