ON THE COVER
Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon were
photographed June 19 by David Needleman
at Studio 1342 in Los Angeles.
I remember at the premiere,
more interesting than watching
the movie was listening to the
audience blowing their noses and
crying, recalls Love Story star
Ali MacGraw. She was photographed
June 18 at One Gun Ranch in
Malibu. For exclusive video, go to

was canceled in 2013 and led to the implosion of Naylors
career, she claims.
Barbarellas, a docuseries about Naylor and her all-girl
band, drew scrutiny when it debuted in 2011 because
some believed it was ordered to air by Redstone against
the advice of network execs and afer he had struck a per-
sonal relationship with Naylor. The show averaged a sof
858,000 viewers during its frst season but was renewed
and retitled The Alectrix for a short second season, which
drew only 197,000 viewers a week.
Despite the low ratings, Naylor accuses Holland,
who has been close to Redstone for years, of using her
infuence to kill the show. Holland grew jealous of
Naylors relationship with Redstone and made eforts to
cut of all ties between Redstone and Naylor so that
Holland could control Redstone for her own economic
advantage, alleges the cross-complaint.
In June 2013, Naylor and Redstone are said to have had
lunch, afer which Holland alleg-
edly took steps to isolate Redstone,
including attempting to limit
access to him and fring loyal
staf. (Some employees, includ-

Now the stars lawyer is probing highly personal details

Sydney Holland, the 43-year-old girlfriend of the 91-year-
old mogul, has been waging litigation for 10 months
against Heather Naylor, a singer who starred on the short-
lived MTV series The Electric Barbarellas, which was
steered to the Viacom-owned network by Redstone afer
he befriended her.
Court documents obtained by THR reveal that in
August, Holland sued Naylor for $1 million, claiming the
performer had stolen Hollands computer containing
private and confdential photographs from the Beverly
Park home she shares with Redstone.
Naylor has fred back in a June 18 cross-complaint
alleging that Holland has wrested control of Redstones

another free-thinking individual
like Naylor, who was not under
Hollands control and not a syco-
phant, alleges Naylor.
Hollands eforts hit the mark,
according to Naylor: MTV
reduced an eight-episode order
for The Alectrix to six; Redstone
didnt show up for an important
meeting he had helped set up for
Naylor with record executives;
and Naylors relationship with
MTV and Viacom came to a halt,
she claims. Her relationship with
Redstone also disintegrated.
Viacom and a rep for Redstone,
who is not a party to the litigation,
declined comment. But Holland
attorney Patty Glaser denies her
CONTI NUED FROM PAGE 1 1 client had anything to do with
Barbarellas demise. Viacom is a
public company that makes
its programming decisions irre-
spective of Sumner Redstones
personal relationships, she says.
She declined comment on the
contents of the missing computer,
but two sources say they include
highly personal photos.
Perhaps most troubling for
Redstone and Viacom, Naylors
lawyer, Neville Johnson, has begun
to probe those potentially scan-
dalous materials, along with
details of Hollands relationship
with Redstone and communica-
tion with Viacom employees.
Holland was asked in a recent fl-
ing to admit she had met Redstone
on a millionaire matchmaker
dating site and acknowledge a past
sexual relationship with Grammy-
winning producer John Shanks. The
court documents suggest Holland
has been added as a benefciary
in Redstones will. And Johnson is
threatening to dig deeper during
Hollands planned deposition.
Glaser calls the investigation
into Hollands sexual history and
relationship with Redstone inap-
propriate and harassing, and she
has asked Judge Ernest Hiroshige
to prevent a line of questioning she
fears is titillating but not
relevant to who stole the laptop.
Meanwhile, Holland is scheduled
to face of in a mediation this sum-
mer against Martinez, a 13-year
Redstone employee until he was let
go and sued by Holland. (Naylor
alleges Holland ordered a lie
detector be administered to several
employees, including Martinez,
when the laptop went missing.)
Sydney Hollands decision to
sue Mr. Martinez is the biggest
mistake she has ever made, says
Martinezs lawyer, Bryan Freedman,
adding that he plans to fle a
separate cross-complaint for his
client that will include claims
against Viacom. It indicates a
complete lack of understanding
of the ramifcations of her own
behavior.
If the case makes it to trial,
Viacom will be forced to endure
awkward questions about how
much infuence Holland maintains
over one of the most powerful men
in media who is worth an estimated
$6.2 billion, according to Forbes.
(Viacom has a market capitaliza-
tion of $36.8 billion, and CBS
is $33.5 billion.) And could the
evidence include the private mate-
rials from Hollands laptop?
The lawyers wont say, but Glaser
hopes the case can be resolved
before a trial: The computer
and whatever is on it should be
returned to Sydney Holland.

OE ROTHS RUN AT REVOLUTION STUDIOS IS
coming to an end, 14 years afer he launched
the company that became one of the most-talked-
about failures in recent Hollywood history.
Sources say a deal is close for him to sell the production
entity for about $500 million.
The buyer is Fortress Investment Group, a publicly
traded investment company based in New York that
manages more than $62 billion in hedge funds. The
sources say Fortress believes theres continued value in
Revolutions library of 46 movies (including fops like
Hollywood Homicide and the more suc-
cessful Click and xXx) along with two
cable TV series (Anger Management
and Are We There Yet?).
Roth, 65, founded Revolution in
2000 with an initial investment of
about $250 million, and the company
then spent more than $2.6 billion
on production, with fnancing coming
Joe Roths Big Sale:
Half a Billion
for Revolution
from such sources as Sony, Starz and Fox. But Revolution
never delivered the kind of hits Roth had hoped for despite
a panoply of vehicles featuring such superstars as Julia
Roberts, Bruce Willis, Tim Allen and Nicolas Cage. In fact,
it became a magnet for bad press thanks to pictures includ-
ing the Ben Affleck-Jennifer Lopez disaster Gigli and Tears of
the Sun, starring Willis. Roth eventually shut down movie
production in 2007.
If the sale goes through, Roth (whos represented by
Evolution Media Capital) is in line for a multiyear consult-
ing contract but no longer will run the company. It will be
led by current employees Vince Totino, Scott Hemming and
Marla Levine.
Roth owns 62 percent of Revolution and will split or
share proceeds with Sony, Starz, Fox, several foreign
distributors and former employees Rob Moore, Todd
Garner and the estate of the late Tom Sherak. How much
cash theyll see is unclear, but Fortress will assume
remaining debt.
Fortress now gets a library that soon will become a lot
more valuable, as the movies revert to Revolution begin-
ning in 2016 afer years of being tied up in distribution
deals with Sony, Starz and Fox.
Roth has kept Revolution alive and
reportedly has paid bank debt with
revenue from sales to Netfix and oth-
ers. Since shutting production, he has
redeemed himself outside Revolution
by producing such hits as Alice in
Wonderland and Heaven Is for Real.
Neither he nor reps for Fortress
would comment.

N A MAJOR SHAKE-UP THAT COULD IMPACT
the Oscar race, The Weinstein Co. and its longtime
awards consultant, Lisa Taback, have called it quits,
bringing an end to one of the most successful alli-
ances in recent history.
Taback has worked with Bob and Harvey Weinstein
since 1994 (frst at Miramax Films and since 1999
through her own com-
pany), helping to bring
home the gold for
such Oscar-winning
movies as Shakespeare in
Love, Chicago, The Kings
Speech and The Artist.
Insiders say she lately
had told colleagues
she was going to take a
break from TWC and
the demanding Harvey
and that she would
be handling other clients
during the 2014-15 awards
season. But the breakup isnt that simple, with
sources saying TWC initiated the split while noting
that theres bad blood on both sides.
The rif goes back to last Oscar season, when
Weinstein execs learned that Taback was represent-
ing Disneys Saving Mr. Banks in what the company
believed was a violation of a contract that called
for her services to be semi-exclusive to TWC. In
previous years, she apparently had been free to rep
indies such as Winters Bone and Precious, which
werent deemed direct threats to TWCs slate, but
under the terms of her 2013 agreement, there were
limits placed on which non-TWC movies she could
handle. While animated movies were OK, and she
was specifcally allowed to work on George Clooneys
The Monuments Men (which ended up being moved out
of awards season), the Disney side deal set of alarms.
Taback was confronted with her extracurricular
activities and reportedly apologized. But the company
was furious. At that point, it agreed to retain her ser-
vices for the remainder of
the season, since she was
privy to its awards strat-
egy, but TWC decided to
sever their relationship
moving forward. (At the
end of the day, Banks
failed to score a best flm
nomination, while TWC
landed 11 noms, including
one in the best picture
category for Philomena.)
Now insiders say the com-
pany has vowed never
to work with her again.
Taback, reached on vacation in Italy, had no com-
ment, but sources say she has fnalized a deal to work
with DreamWorks Animation, which will be felding
How to Train Your Dragon 2. She also is close to sign-
ing on to consult with Paramounts awards team
on a slate that includes Christopher Nolans Interstellar.
As for TWC, which also declined to comment, it has
such potential contenders as The Imitation Game,
starring Benedict Cumberbatch; Tim Burtons Big Eyes;
and a new Macbeth, starring Michael Fassbender. The
company now plans to take on several new consul-
tants, whose eforts will be coordinated by president
of publicity Dani Weinstein.

as if the kids in the lm were shooting

Producer Andrew Panay then took
the lm to Relativity, which did signi-
cant work in editing cutting down
the found-footage elements, adding
a scene where Echo (the alien) breaks
apart a truck and doing several days
of reshoots to make the movie less
rough-hewn and more family-friendly.

SEACRESTS GRAND
SLAM: A CBS SPECIAL,
MORE NBCU CARPETS
RYAN SEACREST
is staying put
on the red carpet.
The multi-
hyphenate has
inked a one-year deal
with NBCUniversal that
includes the major awards car-
pets of 2015. He also has signed
a separate pact to host and
executive produce CBS Fashion
Rocks live special. The latter
marks Seacrests frst on-air deal
with that network, and it means
he now will have partnerships
with each of the Big Four broad-
cast networks. (He hosts New
Years Rockin Eve at ABC and
re-upped for two more years
of Foxs American Idol in May.)
The NBCU pact is in some
ways an extension of his previous
deal, though this one will focus
on carpets, E! News contribu-
tions and E! and NBC specials
via Ryan Seacrest Productions.
NOW THAT FORMER WARNER BROS.
executive Jeff Robinovs new company,
Studio 8, has secured fnancing from Chinas
Fosun International, it needs a splashy
project to put into production and it may
fnd one with Christopher Nolan. The two
could partner on Nolans frst flm afer
Interstellar, which will be released Nov. 7 by
Paramount and Warners. Robinov has
long-standing relationships with Nolan and
his WME agent, Dan Aloni, though a source
close to Robinov says the exec and director
have not discussed working together. Studio
8, which aims to make six movies a year, is
on track to raise $300 mil-
lion in equity. Fosun
is expected to invest as
much as $200 million,
with another $50 million
apiece possible from
Huayi Brothers and Sony,
where Robinov is now
scouting ofces. KIMMASTERS
CAN NETFLIX CONQUER
Europe? The Reed Hastings-led
service will launch in six new
countries in the fall, including
the continents largest, Germany
and France. While the VOD
giant already has roots in the
U.K. and other areas, most analysts
see major obstacles to a broader
European rollout. In addition to competi-
tion from global and local players alike,
Netfix will have to go without its buzz-
generating U.S. shows in some territories.
Sky Deutschland, for example, has exclusive
local rights to Netfixs own House of Cards,
and in France the frst two seasons of Cards
belong to CanalPlus. Bernd Riefler, chief
marketing ofcer at Berlin-based research
group Veed Analytics, believes Netfix
will start in fourth place in Germany, well
behind Maxdome and Amazon Prime.
In trying to boost its position, Netfix has
entered talks with Deutsche Telekom,
No longer ofcially included is
a commitment to NBC News
Today or involvement with NBC
Sports. Still, Seacrest suggests
that he would like to continue
working with both divisions, and
he already has had conversations
with NBC Sports about col-
laborating on Olympics coverage
in Rio de Janeiro in 2016, as he
did for the 2012 London Games.
Today is less likely given his
morning radio schedule in L.A.
News of the pact comes afer
reports that he was considering
calling it quits on red-carpet
responsibilities. I felt I had
been there for a long time, and I
wanted to think about whether it
ft into the full scope of my focus
in the years to come, he tells
THR, noting that his long-stand-
ing relationships with NBCU
executives Steve Burke and Bonnie
Hammer played a signifcant
role in him ultimately signing on
for another 12 months: Theyve
been very good to me.
Seacrests involvement with
Fashion Rocks was born out
of another set of relationships
with CBS music and specials
chief Jack Sussman and with
Macys. The program will air as a
two-hour primetime special dur-
ing New York Fashion Week in
September, coinciding with the
department stores fall rollout of
Ryan Seacrest Distinction, his
forthcoming collection of tai-
lored suits and accessories. He
is said to be planning a live
radio broadcast from Herald
Square just before Fashion Week
to promote the line as well.

service provider, about a marketing
tie-in ahead of its launch there;
similar talks may be underway
with mobile carrier Vodafone for
multiple territories. To make
up for its lack of exclusive content,
Netfix is spending big on Euro-
friendly productions such as Queen
ElizabethII drama The Crown and a French-
language series that reportedly will shoot
in France this year. [Netfixs] global scale
allows it to take on these sizable projects,
says analyst Benjamin Swinburne of Morgan
Stanley Research, which predicts Netfixs
international subscriber base of 12.7 mil-
lion could jump to 56 million by 2020. The
potential abroad is huge: Western Europe
had 134 million broadband homes at the
end of 2013, according to market researcher
SNL Kagan. And revenue from its nascent
VOD market is expected to jump to $1.1 bil-
lion by 2017. SCOTT ROXBOROUGH
TVs ultimate
emcee now has
deals at all Big
Four networks.

Just Pucks Luck: Spagos
Neighbor Bites Name
Six years ago, when Manhattan
restaurateur Wolfgang Zwiener
opened a Beverly Hills branch
of his Wolfgangs Steakhouse a
couple of blocks away from
Wolfgang Pucks CUT, the enter-
tainment industrys favorite chef
fled a trademark-infringement
lawsuit and lost. Now hes facing
deja vu as Spaghettini, an upscale
Italian restaurant whose sole
location has been in Orange
County for 26 years, is in the
process of setting up shop
next door to Spago on Canon
Drive this year. Some people
are kind of confused, and
the names do share a few
of the same letters, admits
Spaghettini partner and
Beverly Hills resident Dave
Koz, the Grammy-nominated
smooth-jazz saxophonist. But
Spaghettini is a brand thats
been around for almost as long
as Spago has. (Pucks fagship
celebrated its 30th anniversary last

Nancy Meyers Casts
Former Assistant in Role
Jason Orley, a 25-year-old fedgling
screenwriter, has had quite the
week. A former assistant to Nancy
Meyers on Its Complicated (2009),
he later penned a script called Big
Time Adolescence and landed UTA
and Mosaic as reps, with the script
now in development with produc-
tion outft StarStream. But things
have taken a turn for the even bet-
ter: In early June, Orley received
an email from former boss Meyers,
asking if hed audition for one of
the intern roles on her new comedy
The Intern, starring Robert De Niro
and Anne Hathaway. I studied
writing at NYU and had to do some
comic acting in classes but never
took it seriously, Orley tells THR.
My girlfriend shot my audi-
tion on her iPhone. Then I
did more tapes. Then Skype.
Then I came to New York
to audition. When I sat down
to do a table read with De Niro
and Anne Hathaway, I would
not let myself be terrifed.
I thought, If this is the end
of the process, I want to enjoy
it. A few days later, Meyers
called him into her New York ofce
to ofer him the role. Now call
your mom on the speakerphone!
she told Orley. When he reached
his mom in Michigan and explained
that Meyers was on the line, his
mom came back with, Are you
sure, Nancy, are you sure?!
He starts shooting his scenes
July 3.
Serb Designer Changes
Name to Up Her Game
THR hears that Roksanda Ilincic,
the Serbian-born, Central St.
Martins-educated, London-based
designer of popular red carpet
dresses worn most recently by
Hathaway, Kate Middleton, Cate
Blanchett, Jessica Biel, Zoe Saldana
and yes, Michelle Obama is
moving onward in her attempt to
become a global brand. Along
with opening her frst namesake
store in London in Mayfair in June,
shes decided to drop the hard to
pronounce Ilincic the brand
is now going by Roksanda
and is poised to receive an infusion
of new money from investors to do
accessories, perfume, shoes in
other words, the whole fashion nine
yards. It didnt hurt that Emma
Stone and Amber Heard were early
red carpet recruits.
Urkel Was Special Sauce
Behind Roy Chois Kogi
Forget kimchi. It turns out
that Urkel was the secret ingredi-
ent behind the now-legendary
success of the Kogi truck phenom-
enon inspiration for Mays Jon
Favreau-directed indie flm Chef, in
which he starred alongside Scarlett
Johansson and Sofia Vergara that
took L.A. by storm a few years
ago. In real life, actor Jaleel White
(Urkel on Family Matters) a
major foodie and fan of Kogi mas-
termind Roy Chois cooking since
his Trader Vics days dismissed
the chef s initial plans to sell
his Korean BBQ mash-up tacos
out of a street cart. My sugges-
tion was to repurpose the
roach coach, White tells THR.
He then hooked up Choi with his
friend, Morris Appel of local truck-
ing company Road Stoves, who
supplied a vehicle at relatively no
cost. The rest is culinary, and now
movie, history.

THE BUSINESS EXECUTIVE SUITE
PRESIDENT OF PRODUCTION,
20TH CENTURY FOX
Emma Watts
A
FTER YEARS OF WATCHING RIVAL
studios dominate the summer months, 20th
Century Fox is having a season to remem-
ber, thanks to X-Men: Days of Future Past,
The Other Woman and The Fault in Our Stars
(with July 11s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes on
deck). At the center of the revival is Emma
Watts, whose job as president of production took
on increased importance with the departure
of hands-on former studio co-chairman Tom
Rothman nearly two years ago. Afer Rothman
lef Jim Gianopulos solely in charge at Fox, Watts
brought X-Men maestro Bryan Singer back
to direct Mays Days of Future Past, which has
grossed nearly $700 million worldwide, a fran-
chise best. She put the Apes sequel in the hands
of Matt Reeves (Let Me In), helped convince
David Fincher to take on Gone Girl (Oct. 3) and
by years end will have movies from Ridley
Scott (Exodus: Gods and Kings) and Shawn Levy
(a third Night at the Museum).
The U.K.-born and Vancouver-raised Watts,
44, oversees a production group of about 30
employees and a slate of 10 to 12 movies a year.
She got her start working with photographer
Herb Ritts before joining Oliver Stones produc-
tion company, where she met her husband,
producer Jonathan Krauss, with whom she
has a young son and daughter, as well as
a barely month-old girl. Watts recently took
time out from her maternity leave to speak
with THR about the Singer sex abuse scandal;
whether Stacey Snider who could join Fox
as Gianopulos No. 2 would pose a threat and
the possibility of getting involved with Stones
Edward Snowden biopic.
Fox is having a strong run at the box oce.
What has been most surprising for you?
God forbid, dont say that were having a hot
summer because that terrifes me. (Laughs.) Its
always a relief when something works because
you put so much into it, as do so many others,
but the movie gods are fckle. I wouldnt call it
a winning streak, but I will say the whole com-
pany has rallied and its a great refection of Jims
leadership and the overall strategy and slate
weve put forth.
Days of Future Past has grossed $211 million more
than the next biggest in the X-Men franchise. Why?
It was the management of the franchise. And a
big part of it was getting Bryan [Singer] back
[as director]. The debate about originality versus
familiar titles is interesting. You can have origi-
nal movies that feel derivative in their execution,
and you can have franchise titles that feel solely
original and aspirational in terms of the talent
attached, the story, et cetera. So I think the rea-
son for Days of Future Pasts success is, it doesnt
underestimate what the audience is wanting or
capable of enjoying.
Was it tough when Singer had to bow out of the
publicity push because of the lawsuit led against
him alleging sexual abuse?
It was really tough for him. Luckily, we had 18
mutants to get out there and sell the movie. But
I think he did what had to be done.
Will he be back to direct X-Men: Apocalypse,
set for release in May 2016, as planned?
Right now we are totally at the outlining phase.
But nothing would make me happier than if
it all worked out. Its always been the intention
for him to do it.
Are you concerned there will be superhero burnout
at some point?
Not so far. Certainly the audience seems to

arrival of Stacey Snider? The powerhouse

still be really enjoying it. Were making a big
bet for 2015 with The Fantastic Four and direc-
tor Josh Trank. To me, the key is the originality
of the flmmakers and the choices they make.
Josh is another really interesting example, who
is using the vision he gave us in Chronicle to
reinvent a franchise hes loved his whole life. Its
not that you cant make original ideas you
can, and we did it with Chronicle. The director is
the key to not letting superhero movies go stale.
Thats the truth.
Will the Fantastic Four reboot have any of the
same found-footage feel that Chronicle did?
Its Josh, so it cant not have that feel. Thats
his talent, thats what he does, and thats
what excites him about it. It is a really interest-
ing young cast [Michael B. Jordan, Miles
Teller, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell], and he is
the magnet thats brought them all together.
Cameron Diazs The Other Woman has grossed
$180 million since April. Initially, it received an
R rating. How did you get a PG-13 without having
to make any cuts?
It was hilarious because I was nine months
pregnant when I went to the appeals hearing
with Cameron, so it was quite a visual to
have me walking in. It was actually a really
The use of the actual word [vagina] seemed
far more terrifying than a pseudonym for it.
WATTS, on ghting the MPAA to get The Other Woman a PG-13 rating
www.thr.com | THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER | 35 PHOTOGRAPHED BY Claudia Lucia
I think its frst and foremost a spectacle movie,
with mass appeal and phenomenal perfor-
mances. We always joke internally that Ridley
should teach a master class. He has fve cameras
going at the same time, he knows exactly
how hes going to edit the scene as hes shoot-
ing it, he is not daunted by extras and crowds.
Its pretty amazing.
But do you think the faith-based audience will
embrace it?
I think they are going to be incredibly
pleased with it.
You also are rolling the dice on
director Matthew Vaughns upcoming
genre spy thriller Kingsman: The
Secret Service. Why?
We had a great experience with him
on X-Men: First Class, and he did amaz-
ing things for the franchise. He was
supposed to direct Days of Future Past but
became obsessed with Secret Service, and
I was determined to make sure he stays at Fox
because hes an immense talent.
interesting debate. Theres a double standard in
terms of the kinds of things men can say in PG-13
movies. You put those same words in the mouths
of women and it became far more terrifying.
As soon as we articulated this and brought up
examples, it was incredibly gratifying to see
the MPAA came to the same conclusion. And
Cameron was just brilliant at the hearing.
Ive heard one joke they took issue with was
close your vagina.
You had all these other examples of PG-13 mov-
ies in which men would call it a cookie jar, or
this or that. The use of the actual word seemed
far more terrifying than a pseudonym for it.
In January, Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn said
the lms ending is dierent from the book. Are you
worried about fan reaction?
No, not at all. Audiences are going to be incred-
ibly gratifed. Fincher just crushed it. [Flynn, who
also wrote the screenplay,] had more freedom
than anyone else would have in terms of what
to keep and what to lose because she created it
all. So I think she has this unique ability to be
both editor of her work and creator at the same
moment. And David was really in it with her
from the get-go.
Earlier this year, some religious leaders attacked
the liberties Darren Aronofsky took with Noah,
and Paramount went to great lengths to say it wasnt
a literal Bible adaptation. Will you do the same
with Exodus? G

Rothman is known for being intimately involved with
production. How has your job changed since his exit?
It got harder. The transition was tricky. He is
a good friend, and I learned a lot from him. No
one works harder than he does, so afer the dust
settled, I just put my head down and did the
work. I think the slate is a refection of the whole
team doing just that and saying, OK, that hap-
pened lets make the best possible choices
and move forward. I had two bosses in Tom and
Jim [Gianopulos]. So while I miss Tom, I am
incredibly lucky to have the continuity and
history and the shorthand I have with Jim. So
it was both new and not new at the same time.
Do you have a relationship with DreamWorks
Stacey Snider? What do you know about her
possibly coming to Fox as Jims No. 2?
Yes, I know her, and am a big fan. If everyone
decides that its the right thing, I think it
would be great to have access to her immense
experience and relationships. Im all for it.
How much are you involved with the three Avatar
sequels that James Cameron is shooting?
I was the executive on the frst one, and I get to
be on these, too. Jim is incredibly close to James
Cameron and [producer] Jon Landau, but cer-
tainly I get to work on them, and its truly a gif.
Speaking of close relationships, Oliver Stone has
just announced his Edward Snowden lm. Is there
a chance that Fox might distribute it?
No one is a bigger fan, and I owe him a great
deal. I havent heard his plans yet, but Im sure
I will soon. (Laughs.)
Between having a new baby and your work,
how do you manage stress?
I run, I mountain bike, I do yoga and
swim. And honestly, I think the thing about
a family is that they demand that your work
disappear. You cant be on your BlackBerry
or on your iPhone having a real conversation
with your children. They wont tolerate it.
Having kids makes me better at my job because
Im more engaged emotionally. And I think
the danger of these jobs, when you are putting
out 10 movies a year, is becoming
burned out and jaded, and to stop
connecting emotionally. Thats
when the work sufers. Work and
family feed each other in a way
that I get a tremendous joy from.
You are technically on maternity
leave right now. Are you able to
disengage from work?
Thats a hard one. I would say my
maternity leaves with my other two kids were
diferent. I have a diferent job now, although
I feel very lucky to work at a company where
they have allowed me to be human.

YLVESTER STALLONE,
Wesley Snipes, lots of gun-
fre, a speeding train, an
approaching helicopter all
caught in a swooping birds-eye
view. Not that long ago, the only
way to capture all that simultane-
ous action in one aerial shot would
have required a second helicopter
with its own camera crew. But that
isnt how the opening sequence
in The Expendables 3 was shot.
Instead, an unmanned drone, oper-
ated remotely, hovered above the
scene for the flm, which Lionsgate
is releasing Aug. 15.
We few right next to a train and
helicopter, says pilot Ziv Marom,
owner of the drone camera-services
company ZM Interactive. We shot
everything from chasing tanks to
explosions to fying over buildings
and motorcycle jumps. We can also
do shots that a real helicopter cant
do. We can do lower altitudes.
As drones also known as
UAVs, unmanned aerial vehicles
are being employed for every-
thing from warfare to Las Vegas
bottle service, Hollywood is eager
to draf them into flmmaking
because they hold the promise of
new creative options, real cost
savings and possibly even safer

who have also consented to being
flmed or otherwise have agreed
to be in the area where the flm-
ing will take place. In saying it
would consider the issue, a process
that could take a few months, the
FAA cautioned, All the associated
safety issues must be carefully
considered to make sure any haz-
ards are appropriately mitigated.
The FAA already is working on a
proposed set of rules specifcally
developed for users of small less
than 55 pounds aircraf that it
expects to complete later this year.
Although the FAA has not yet
determined what those regulations
might entail, they could be
applied to drones used in flming
because many digital cameras
are getting smaller and lighter as
the technology advances.

should be allowed to follow suit,

flming. This new tool for story-
tellers will allow for creative and
exciting aerial shots.
Not everyone is convinced,
though. Im really dubious about
the use of drones, says director
of photography Richard Crudo,
president of the American Society
of Cinematographers and an
Academy of Motion Picture Arts
and Sciences governor. First of
all, people dont realize that these
things are like fying lawn mow-
ers excessive care must be taken
with their use.
Others argue, though, that
unmanned craf could make flm-
ing safer by keeping flmmakers
on the ground. Says Dan Kanes, a
director of photography whose
company Paralinx makes a wireless
HD video link that enables remote
monitoring while flming with a
drone: Its much safer than fying
a full-size copter. Unfortunately,
sometimes there are helicopter
accidents. In 1982, on the set of
Twilight Zone: The Movie, one such
accident resulted in the death of
actor Vic Morrow and two children.
More recently, two flmmakers who
were working with James Cameron
were killed in February 2012 when
their helicopter crashed while loca-
tion scouting of the south coast of
Australia. And in early 2013, three
died in a crash while working on a
Discovery program in Acton, Calif.
Although the Feb. 20 death
of Sarah Jones, a 27-year-old
camera assistant who was struck
by a train in Georgia while flm-
ing Midnight Rider, didnt involve
an aircraf, it has given new
urgency to demands for safer sets.
Drones could ofer one solution.
If you place a remote-controlled,
unmanned camera in a place that
is dangerous to humans, you are
also alleviating some of the risks
that crewmembers could face,
says Kanes, adding that unmanned
aircraf can make flmmaking
safer as long as the people
practicing are following safety pro-
tocol on set. Its really important
want, based on their comfort
level. We do a lot of preplanning.
Im constantly scouting so
that if something goes wrong, [I
know] where I can ditch it in
a safe position to avoid everyone.
But a red fag was waved by
the FAAs Jim Williams in a
speech in May at the Association
to have vetted specialists, hopefully
union members. In fact, he sug-
gests, Local 600, the International
Cinematographers Guild, should
consider establishing a special des-
ignation for drone operators.
Patrick Smith of Aerial Media
Pros a dealer for drone-maker
DJI says that his company
has used drones for low-fying
shots. And he always starts with a
safety briefng that includes the
actors. We want to talk and
let them know we can get within
maybe 10 feet of them, if they
for Unmanned Vehicle Systems
International Conference when
he reported that there have, in
fact, been flming accidents involv-
ing unmanned aircraf. During
the Endure Batavia Triathlon in
Australia earlier this year, an ath-
lete was injured when a small UAV
commissioned to flm the event
fell from the sky, hitting her in the
head, said Williams, who is
manager of the FAAs Unmanned
Aircraf Systems Integration
Ofce. The competitor was unable
to complete the race because
she sustained injuries that required
stitches. The risk of injury
from unmanned aircraf is not
limited to people on the ground,
either. In March, a near midair
collision was reported close to the
Tallahassee Regional Airport
in Florida. According to Williams,
The airline pilot said that the
UAS was so close to the jet that he
may have collided with it.
Nonetheless, outside the U.S.,
flmmakers already are employing
drones. They were used in the U.K.
for HBOs Game of Thrones and the
upcoming BBC One drama series
Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell.
And cost savings immediately
come into play. On Expendables 3,
the original shooting plan called
for about 38 days of helicopter
shots, but that was reduced to no
more than 10 when the drones
proved their versatility, according
to ZM Interactives Marom. The
daily rates for using the drones
ranged from $4,500 to $8,000,
he says, depending on the drone,
camera and number of operators.
Typically, a two-person crew a
pilot and a camera operator
are required, though sometimes
a focus puller also is added. By
comparison, adds Smith, youre
probably looking at between
$15,000 and $20,000 for a helicop-
ter day with a crew.
Beyond safety concerns and cost
savings, Kanes emphasizes that
drones can ofer flmmakers new
creative options. Its a great way
to get new perspectives. Instead
of using a jib or a crane, it allows
you to have an infnite crane arm,
he says. And, adds Smith, the
one-take shot is what the directors
of photography and producers
really like, the ability to follow
something really close and then
pull back or go high for a reveal.
But Crudo remains dubious.
Sure, they have their place in the
tool kit, he says, but it wont be
long before gratuitous aerial shots
will be breaking out like the plague
at every level of the business.
We shot everything from chasing tanks to explosions
to fying over buildings and motorcycle jumps.
We can also do things that a real helicopter cant do.
MAROM, owner of the drone camera-services company ZM Interactive
A drone was used to
capture this sequence
from The Expendables 3 in
which Stallone arrives by
helicopter to spring Snipes
from a moving train.
WHAT THEY ARE EXACTLY Although any type of drone to which a camera can
be attached can be pressed into service, typically the UAVs used by lmmakers are
multirotor aircraft that use multiple propellers to achieve lift.
WHAT THEY WEIGH A small UAV with a tiny camera like a GoPro can weigh as
little as 2 pounds, while a heavier UAV congured with such larger cameras as a
Red Epic or Arri Alexa can range from 16 pounds to 30 pounds.
WHAT SORT OF CREW IS NEEDED Typically, at least two: a pilot who operates
the drone and a camera operator who operates the camera via remote control.
Sometimes, theres a separate lens puller to handle focus.
HOW THE GROUND CREW MONITORS FILMING A wireless HD video link allows
directors to see whats being shot in real time.
WHATS NEXT Some companies already are working to create rigs that could
hold two cameras on a single drone, allowing lming in 3D from the air.

THE BUSINESS TELEVISION
ILLUSTRATION BY Taylor Callery
T
HE ONLY THING MORE
troubling than Duck Dynastys
46 percent season-to-season
ratings slide is that its genre
has no heir apparent.
The A&E juggernaut remains
cables reality king, averaging
6.3 million viewers for frst-run
episodes this year, but its swif
decline typifes a challenge for the
genre as newer series siphon of
viewers yet fail to capture the buzz
(or ratings highs) of past break-
outs. Duck, which catapulted the
Robertson family to fame soon
afer it premiered in 2012, is argu-
ably the genres last bona fde hit to
emerge, and fnding the next one
has proved more difcult than ever.
Though executives have publicly
cited a crisis of creativity in real-
itys derivative culture, the bigger
culprit is fragmentation. Afer
all, the number of primetime
hours devoted to fresh unscripted
programming jumped another
16 percent in 2013, thanks in part
to a growing crop of new entrants,
including CNN, USA and TNT,
with unscripted fare now com-
prising 79 percent of all frst-run
hours in primetime.
Its just supersaturated,
History executive vp and GM Dirk
Hoogstra told THR this year, add-
ing: You had this proliferation
of cable networks, all of them doing
reality, all of them chasing the
same kinds of shows. Consumers
got a little overwhelmed. Its
never been more challenging to
launch an unscripted hit.
Of the top 10 reality series on
cable this year, not one was launched
during the past 12 months.
In fact, only three (Duck, VH1s
Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta and
Desperate
for the Next
Duck Dynasty
Historys Mountain Men) came
out as recently as 2012, and No. 9,
Discoverys Deadliest Catch, has
been on the schedule since 2005
and is enjoying its strongest sea-
son in three years.
At the same time, the genres
newer series have had an increas-
ingly difcult time breaking in,
with 2013 marking the fourth con-
secutive year in which the number
of cable shows debuting to an audi-
ence of at least 1 million viewers
in the target 25-to-54 demographic
has declined. In fact, only 24 per-
cent of new unscripted cable series
averaged north of 1 million, down
from 35 percent in 2010. (Broadcast
has had its own set of troubles,
with NBCs 2011 entry The Voice
the last to launch big. )
Another reality veteran notes
the genre used to have the advan-
tage of being diferent, and now
so much of it is the same (see: a
multitude of series about hoarders,
pawn stars and rednecks). The
need for all these hours on so many
channels only poisons the well even
Cable TVs biggest genre has
not produced a new
top 10 hit in two years as
networks and copycat
programming abound
By Lacey Rose and Michael OConnell
more, says the executive, because
it creates an ecosystem where the
majority of shows blend rather than
stand out.
Making matters worse, unscrip-
ted series ability to repeat a
way not only to establish an audi-
ence for a show but also to generate
profts is no longer as certain
in todays crowded landscape. Not
that cables marathon strategy
will be abandoned anytime soon,
as evidenced by A&Es decision
to air Duck Dynasty 1,431 times,
not including specials, during the
2013-14 season. But with so
many original options elsewhere
and multiple viewing platforms
on which to watch, repeats of
reality programming across the
top 20 cable networks are down
9 percent year-over-year.
None of this is to say the genre
has lost its status as cables
most dependable workhorse, nor
is it to suggest viewers have
lost their appetite for reality TV.
Much the opposite, with longer-
running series including The Real
Housewives of Atlanta still notch-
ing ratings records and the time
devoted to watching unscripted
programming on cable up 2 per-
cent this year.
And to the point of Brian
Hughes, senior vp audience
analysis at Magna Global: Its so
much cheaper to produce than
scripted that even if ratings arent
exactly where a network might
want them to be, its a less risky
investment to make than if spend-
ing $4.5 million on a drama pilot
that then ends up failing.
There are signs of potential
promise, too, with 2014 newcom-
ers such as Wahlburgers and
hip-hop series Bring It! making
an impact on ratings for A&E and
Lifetime, respectively. One-of
stunts featuring such daredevils as
Nik Wallenda also have managed
to generate big interest and rat-
ings (13 million viewers watched
Wallendas Grand Canyon walk
on Discovery in 2013).
And though its not clear
theyll translate to big viewership,
quick turnaround series led by
Lifetimes True Tori, which flm
mere weeks before they hit the
air, are providing a much-needed
fresh take on the genre. The same
could be said for the recent cadre
of nude-themed shows (VH1s
Dating Naked, Discoverys Naked
and Afraid), which have managed
to generate ink at a time when
so much else has been written of.
Its not like its a dire situation,
says Sam Armando, senior vp and
director of strategic intelligence
at media-buying frm SMGx, but
there are peaks and valleys in any
genre, and we might be experienc-
ing a valley for reality.

UNIQUE FOURTH
OF JULY BASH
In his new book, Taming the

to Adventurous Cooking (Atria
Books, $25.81), Ben Ford chef
of Culver Citys Fords Filling
Station (9531 Culver Blvd.) and
son of Harrison Ford provides
his tips for the ultimate at-
home holiday feast:
1. SKIP THE BBQ Opt for a
wood fre instead, says Ford.
It adds an authentic quality
that cant be reproduced. A
good example of this is paella.
Originally a dish cooked over
live fre, its now, for the most
part, cooked on a propane
burner. Take it back to its roots
and see what the fuss is about.
2. BRING SOME GAME TO YOUR
GAME Forgo chicken in favor
of birds like quail and squab,
which do really well on the grill.
Bufalo, bison and elk are all
great alternatives to the tradi-
tional beef burger.
3. DO A CLAMBAKE IN AN
OAK BARREL You might have
already done one in a kettle
grill, but why not step it up?

THE GIRL OF SUMMER
Nicola Peltz is as deft at dodging killer bots
onscreen as she is striding across a beach in
sky-high gold Gucci platform heels and a glittery
gold-and-white Proenza Schouler dress. Her
starring role this summer as Mark Wahlbergs
daughter in Michael Bays Transformers:
Age of Extinction is likely to be a big break for
19-year-old Peltz, whose past work includes
The Last Airbender and A&E series Bates Motel.
The daughter of billionaire businessman Nelson
Peltz and former model Claudia Heffner, the
actress says growing up with one sister and
six brothers made her an automatic fan of the
$2.7 billion franchise and brought out her
tomboy tendencies. I was either wearing my
brothers clothes, or I was wearing a princess
outt and playing with dolls. I guess Im that way
now. When in Los Angeles, this New Yorker says
she loves to stay at Santa Monicas Shutters on
the Beach, and never misses a chance to grab
some food at one of L.A.s Urth Caes, to peruse
the shops on Melrose Avenue and to watch her
brothers catch waves in Venice. REBECCA FORD

MWS ALTERNATIVE-FUEL CAR
strategy launched in March with
the utilitarian i3 electric (Halle
Berry drives one in CBS upcoming
Extant) is about to shif into
top gear with the arrival of the i8 plug-in hybrid.
The scissor-doored i8 at $135,700, BMWs
most expensive car arrives not a moment
too soon. Along with Mercedes, Porsche
and Audi, BMW has watched restively as
Teslas Model S usurped its once-bullet-
proof status as Hollywoods default luxury
rides and purveyors of technological prow-
ess. The i8 is meant to impress upon both
devout and prospective customers (like Reese
Witherspoon, who drives a 7 Series Alpina) that
BMW can feld a car that outguns Tesla in terms
of innovation and style while stealing back
some of the buzz that has beguiled Model S buy-
ers from Jeffrey Katzenberg to James Cameron.
Give BMW credit: In 2007 when Tesla
introduced its now-discontinued Roadster the
German maker of thundering, gasoline-powered
ultimate driving machines went all in on a radi-
cal rethinking of how its cars of the future would
look and drive. The result, afer billions in
R&D, is an entirely new i subdivision devoted
to alter native-fuel cars built from materials
derived from aviation, components made in eco-
friendly factories and a futuristic aesthetic that
scarcely nods to BMWs design legacy. (Tesla and
BMW recently discussed collaborating on a
plan to share Teslas network of charging stations.)
The i8 looks like no other BMW because
BMW wanted its frst i electrics to look like
no other cars, period. Early adopters of new
technologies like to faunt their savvy, which
is why some hybrids repurposed con-
ventional cars never caught on while the
Toyota Prius became a cult hit then a
mainstream sensation. The Model S went
one better: It ditched the eco-earnestness
and bet that a certain type of driver would
pay $65,000-plus for a Maserati-style sedan built
around a revolutionary all-electric drive train.
Tesla was right and has held the sexy electric high
ground ever since. (Last year, it sold 22,477 of the
Model S, more than a third of them in California.)
If this reporters time piloting the i8 on a test
drive from Beverly Hills (where pedestrians fred
camera phones at every intersection) to the ser-
pentine roads of Malibu Canyon is any indication,
BMW seems well on its way to stealing back
some of Teslas thunder. The i8s trafc-stopping
styling and superlative performance are a rev-
elation: an eco-friendly car that gets the equiva-
lent of 112 mpg but can hit 155 miles per hour and
corner like a tree-hugging Lotus Elan.

POWER Plug-in hybrid
RANGE 22 miles in electric mode. Equivalent of
112 mpg combined gas and electric.
TOP SPEED 75 mph electric; 155 mph gas and electric
AVAILABLE About 1,500 examples will be

Pull down the door, and the i8 surrounds the
driver and passengers (there are two largely theo-
retical rear seats) in a cocoon of Zenlike serenity.
The leather-covered dashboards curving planes
integrate AC vents, climate controls and a virtual
instrument cluster into a single fowing sculpture.
The i8s infotainment screen, mated to BMWs
once-maligned but now intuitive iDrive interface,
seems to foat in its recess.
Underway, the i8 doesnt have the grabby, go-
kart feel of low-slung exotics, nor does it drive
much like an electric car. The battery-charging
regenerative braking, which in other electrics
lends jarring deceleration, feels no diferent than
conventional disc brakes. Scooting around town
on the 131 hp electric motor, which has 22 miles of
range and a top speed of 75 mph, the i8s cabin
is hushed. Tromp on the accelerator, and a 231 hp
turbocharged three-cylinder engine gets into
the act. The combined power plants deliver zero to
60 in 4.4 seconds and a snarling supercar exhaust
note capable of leveling a Tesla at 20 paces.
The i8 was conceived not as a volume car;
thats the job of the $41,000 i3, which booked
10,000 orders ahead of its launch. BMW says only
about 1,500 i8s will emerge from the factory in
Leipzig, Germany, this year, which means the i8
can claim the ultimate Hollywood status trope
that the Model S is losing as it nears ubiquity in
L.A.: head-turning, envy-inducing scarcity.

BMWs i8 is constructed
using lightweight aluminum
for the chassis and carbon

scissor doors look massive
but are easy to open.

The i8 interior
is luxurious without
typical luxury-car bling:
no burled wood or
extraneous gadgets;
instead, ergonomic controls
and sculpted leather
surfaces in muted
blacks and grays.

HEN AN LAPD
ofcer was struck
and killed by
an out-of-control
cement truck
traveling down Beverly Hills Loma
Vista Drive in March, it was a trag-
edy. When only two months later a
second ofcer was struck and killed
25 yards away on the same street
by another careening cement truck,
which hit the ofcers car and over-
turned, an outcry ensued that made
headlines for weeks.
What escaped most news cover-
age is the development rush in
the star-studded Trousdale Estates
neighborhood, where dozens of
such trucks commute day in and
day out to haul dirt and supplies.
In all, according to city records,
47 houses are under construction
or renovation within the 410-acre
hillside community of about 530
residences, where developers and
homeowners are snapping up
untouched midcentury properties
to rebuild into modern abodes with
values as high as triple their costs.
Among them is Oakley founder
Jim Jannard, who is building a one-
story house with a basement on two
acres where he razed a Hal Levitt-
designed midcentury house he had
bought for $19.9 million fve years
ago. When completed, it could
be valued at more than $50 million.
Construction is going crazy,
says Branden Williams, a Hilton
& Hyland agent who also is renovat-
ing two properties in Trousdale.
Theres so much opportunity in the
neighborhood and a lot of money
to be made. Its the perfect storm.
As the real estate market
improves, development opportunities
seem ample in an area that is
home to such names as Vera Wang,
Elton John, Hedi Slimane and Ringo
Starr. Many recent residents
have been drawn because of their
interest in restoring Trousdales
midcentury gems, a host of which
were unimproved for decades.
Designed by architects including
A.Quincy Jones and Levitt, the
houses sit on large plots that ofer

city and ocean views and boast
coveted Beverly Hills addresses,
many with asking prices as much
as 70 percent lower than those
in more established hill neighbor-
hoods like the Bird Streets above
Hollywood. But preservation is
being outpaced by development.
If youre building essentially
the same house, then theres your
proft right there, says Blair Chang,
an agent at The Agency.
Agents say about half of the
houses under construction
are meant for sale, with
most expected to be listed
at more than $10 million.
Producer-turned-developer
Nile Niami is building
at least three multimillion-
dollar modern spec
houses with basements, a
way to maximize space in
a neighborhood that prohib-
its two-story residences. All of them
will have views.
People want and will pay good
money for views, says Michael
Nourmand, president at Nourmand
& Associates Realtors. Developers
are all betting big.
Big is right. Take, for example,

listed at $65 million, a neighbor-
hood record.
The level of building has esca-
lated during the past several years.
In 2006, Jennifer Aniston bought a
Levitt-designed house for $13.5 mil-
lion that she renovated and
sold for $35 million fve years later.
Jeffrey Katzenberg bought a six-acre
property for $35 million in 2009
that he razed and rebuilt into a
12,000-square-foot rustic residence.
While much is under construc-
tion, few renovated houses have
hit the market. Celebrity hairstylist
Sally Hershberger has listed hers
for $6.9 million. Courteney Cox
and David Arquette are in escrow to
sell a $5.45 million residence
they renovated then listed
for $19.5 million in 2013.
Still, there are concerns
about tearing down the work
of well-known architects, some
of whom appear on a list the
city can use to determine
whether a house should be
preserved. Architecture fans
hope certain properties are
saved from demolition, including
Elvis Presleys former estate
designed by Rex Lotery. It recently
sold for $14.5 million, only eight
months afer trading for $9.8 million.
In response to the fatal accidents,
large development projects requir-
ing heavy-haul trucks were put on
hold. The California Highway Patrol
is investigating both cases, but
the problems seemed to lie with the
trucks ability to navigate safely
down the steep street. Investigators
suspect that in at least one
instance there might have been a
problem with the trucks brakes.
On June 18, Beverly Hills ofcials
lifed the moratorium afer devising
a plan to make the roads safer.
It includes requiring heavy-haul
trucks to have secondary brakes
and proof of an annual safety inspec-
tion. The city also implemented
new truck routes and lowered truck
speeds to 15 miles an hour. Ofcials
have considered measures taken
by other cities that limit construc-
tion within a given perimeter.
In Santa Monica, for example, only
one house within a 500-foot
radius can be under construction
at a given time.
Agents say such restrictions
might dampen interest in Trousdale.
I think it would turn every-
one from owner-users to the
speculators of, says Rayni
Romito Williams, a Hilton &
Hyland agent.
Some, though, can see a
beneft to limiting the amount
of construction.
My gut is saying there are
too many homes coming
at the same time, says Chang.
If I have 10 $20 million homes being
built and coming on at diferent
times, it will serve the builders well.
If they come on at the same time,
the market will pull back.
For now, the projects dont seem
to bother residents. Frieda Berlin,
a liaison at the Trousdale Estates
Homeowners Association, says
it is nice to see older houses get
modernized.
The construction itself is not
a problem its a hot neighbor-
hood and to be expected, she says.
We like the area to be brought
up-to-date.
A top real-estate-agent couple,
who have put $4 million
into a $4 million teardown, explain
how such a big investment
can translate into a huge payout
Economics of
a Down-to-Studs
Renovation
TOTAL COST
$8 Million
POTENTIAL LISTING PRICE
$10 Million to $13 Million
The couple, with a baby due in August,
plans to live in the house. If they
wanted to sell it, Romito Williams says
she would list it in that range.
POTENTIAL PROFIT
$2 Million to $5 Million
PURCHASE PRICE
$4 Million
In 2010, the couple bought a 1960s
Jack A.Charney-designed residence on
Hillcrest Drive for $4 million. About two
years later, they decided to remodel it
into a 5,200-square-foot house to include
12-foot ceilings and open glass-panel
exterior walls. They began with a $1 million
renovation budget but have ended up
north of $4 million. As the process goes on,
you realize if you are going to do XYZ, why
not keep going and make it a dream home?
says Romito Williams. The couple was
able to avoid demolition and use the existing
bones. That saved $50,000 to $100,000,
the average cost to raze a property but
just barely.
ARCHITECTURE PLANS
At least $200,000
While every architect has a dierent
payment method, on average a set
of plans can cost $200,000 to $1 million.
The couple declined to provide specics
but say their home-plan costs fell in the
middle of that range.
CITY FEES AND TAXES
At least $270,000
Typically, the architect will take care
of pulling permits from the city. But
builders still must pay city fees, which
can run tens of thousands of dollars.
The couples taxes also were several
hundred-thousand dollars, says Romito
Williams. In Beverly Hills, homeowners
renovating more than 50 percent
of a house are hit with an additional tax
(Romito Williams was about $70,000).
CONSTRUCTION
AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT
At least $3 Million
The typical cost of building, including
materials, can run $300 to $1,000 a square
foot. For the Williams home, it has cost
at least $600 a square foot. Says Romito
Hershberger
Speculative developer Baron Steinbrecher took this 1964 house at 521 Chalette Drive down to the studs before
redeveloping it into a modern 5,400-square-foot, four-bedroom mansion. After being furnished by go-to
L.A. stager Meridith Baer, the residence, which includes Calacatta gold marble kitchen countertops and exterior
pocket doors for an indoor-outdoor feel, is expected to hit the market soon for a price tag of nearly $15 million.

Williams: You are faced with choices

FOUNDATION

Removing and repouring the foundation.
You start remodeling its like Pandoras

next thing you know, all the ducting and
groundwork has to be ripped out
because it has asbestos, and now you
need a new foundation.
STAGING
$30,000
If the Williamses were to stage the property
(they plan to stay and furnish it), then
renting furniture can cost an upfront fee of
about $30,000, then about 1 percent
of that amount each subsequent month.
NEW POOL
$250,000
The couple added a 60-foot innity lap
pool at the edge of the property.
LANDSCAPING

A landscaper can cost $100,000 to
$1 million. Romito Williams says her bill

OW DOES ONE TURN A PROFIT TRANSFORMING A MIDCENTURY HOUSE INTO
a modern manor? For Rayni Romito Williams and her husband, Branden Williams,
it took $8 million and more than two years. The couple, who work together as agents
at Hilton & Hyland, are remodeling their Trousdale residence as well as one nearby they plan
to sell. They visit the properties daily and have hired project managers to oversee them eight
hours a day. Romito Williams spoke with THR about how the development has penciled out
for their own house, especially because they have put as much into it as they paid for it. Its a
sign of faith in the neighborhood and the recovery of the L.A. market. People are now very
aware of how fabulous Trousdale is, and then also people have condence to build, she says.
We kept saving until we could get into the game. The house should be completed in 2015.

The idea of spending summer in the Hamptons in

SUSAN SARANDON AND GEENA DAVIS
FROM THELMA & LOUISE (NO. 59)
I thought of it as a cowboy movie with women instead of guys, says Sarandon of her role
in Ridley Scotts 1991 groundbreaking female-bonding road movie. It was pretty shocking that
people were so threatened by it. Like somehow we had backed into territory long held only
by white heterosexual men of a certain age. Davis doesnt disagree I dont think any of us
knew it would strike a nerve the way it did, she says but savors dierent memories of
making the movie, including getting paired with an unknown young actor during his tryout for a
key role. I read with Brad Pitt, she recalls. But I got a little distracted during the scene. I
was forgetting my lines. I was like, Im totally screwing up this kids audition. It didnt get any
easier after Pitt, then 28, got the part. Ridley is really into the look of things, says Davis, so
he was spraying Evian on Brads stomach during the shots. I was like, Hello! STACEY WILSON

I
S IT WRONG TO ALREADY DECLARE THIS THE NO. 1 MOVIE LIST OF ALL
time? Afer all, there are other movie lists. Lots and lots of others. So many lists,
you couldnt list them all. But this is the frst to ask the entertainment industry
itself to pick its choices for the best pictures ever made. In May, THR sent an
online ballot all over town to every studio, agency, publicity frm and pro-
duction house on either side of the 405. Not everybody was initially thrilled to
participate. I reject the idea, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan told THR.
To me, its the equivalent of having a party-size bag of Nacho Doritos, then being told
to eat only fve. In the end, though, he sent in his favorites (one of which is 1961s Yojimbo),
as did a total of 2,120 industry members, including Fox chief Jim Gianopulos, Disneys Alan
Horn, director Gary Ross, producer Frank Marshall, Warners Sue Kroll, agent Robert
Newman, attorney John Burke, flmmaker John Singleton and many more. On these pages
are the results: the greatest movies ever made, according to Hollywood.
There are some surprises here. Its a far more commercial list than the usual critics
picks. Who knew, for instance, that Back to the Future would get more love than Lawrence
of Arabia? There also are shocking omissions The 400 Blows, La Dolce Vita, The Gold
Rush and dozens of other undeniably great flms. And there are interesting diferences
of opinion along professional divides: Directors, writers and agents all agreed on their
choice for the greatest movie ever (hint: It rhymes with Schmodfather), while cinematog-
raphers chose 2001: A Space Odyssey and entertainment lawyers, the big sofies, picked
The Shawshank Redemption.
Whether you agree with their choices or not, theres lots to enjoy on these pages, from the
reunion photographs to the whereabouts of famous props to THR critic Todd McCarthys
own assessment of Hollywoods top pick. But keep in mind, movie lists arent forever. As
Michael Bay points out, Your favorite flm could change every day. BENJAMIN SVETKEY

THE GODFATHER (1972)
DIRECTOR Francis Ford Coppola
CAST Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan, Robert Duvall,
Diane Keaton, Talia Shire
ADJUSTED DOMESTIC GROSS (ADG; all grosses have been
adjusted for inflation) $626 million
The Godfather came into this world, in the form of Mario Puzos
novel, as pulp. In a feat of creative alchemy arguably unsurpassed
before or since, Coppola and his collaborators turned the Mafia
melodrama into popular art that satisfies on every possible level
as a family drama, a crime saga, a visual and musical ravish-
ment and an impeccable evocation of a historical period.
Godfather is 42 years old, meaning anyone who saw it when it
came out in 1972 is pushing 60 or older. This suggests its narrative
power, extraordinary performances and mythic values register
as strongly for younger viewers as they did at the time. The film
also happens to stand at the precise midpoint between the arrival
of sound films and the present. It is both classical and modern,
traditional in its storytelling and contemporary in its critical per-
spective. Its a film that does it all.
THE WIZARD OF OZ (1939)
DIRECTOR Victor Fleming
CAST Judy Garland, Frank Morgan, Ray Bolger,
Bert Lahr, Jack Haley
ADG $33 million
If I was on a desert island, Id bring The Wizard
of Oz with me, says Elizabeth Daley, dean of the
USC School of Cinematic Arts. It always makes
me feel alive. I could watch it over and over. And
people have, generation after generation. In fact, its
the most-watched film of all time, according to the
Library of Congress, thanks to regular showings
on broadcast television since the mid-1950s (and on
cable since the 90s). Thats not including sequels
and prequels, which Hollywood keeps releasing each
decade like swarms of flying monkeys. The most
recent, Oz the Great and Powerful, starring James
Franco as a hunky young wizard, grossed more than
$230 million domestically. That yellow brick road
clearly is made of gold.
CITIZEN KANE (1941)
DIRECTOR Orson Welles
CAST Orson Welles, Joseph Cotten, Dorothy
Comingore, Agnes Moorehead, Ruth Warrick

Critics have hailed this for decades as the
greatest American movie ever made, making it an
all-too-easy pick for anyones greatest-movie list.

But not all moviegoers, especially younger ones,
are enthralled with the story of Charles Foster Kane
and his long-lost sled. Among poll respondents in
their 20s, for instance, it was only the 26th-favorite
film. Among the under-20s, it was 53rd. Among
those over 60, though, it was No. 1 or 2.
THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION (1994)
DIRECTOR Frank Darabont
CAST Tim Robbins, Morgan Freeman
ADG $53 million
Of all the adaptations of Stephen King stories
and they are legion because he is the most-adapted
living writer this is the only one to make the
list. All that Shawshank love apparently came after
the films unexceptional theatrical release, when
it began popping up on cable TV nearly as regularly
as Geico commercials. In 2013, 151 hours of basic
cable time was devoted to airing the 142-minute
movie. Thats about six days of watching Robbins try
to escape from prison.

Not surprisingly,
Rick and Ilsas war-torn
romance was a big
favorite among seasoned
poll respondents. Among
those in their 60s, it
was the third-most-pop-
ular picture, while among those in their 20s, it was
37th. Also not a big shocker, men and women had
different opinions: Casablanca was males third-
favorite film and females 14th. But then, men always
prefer their love stories with Nazis in them.
THE GODFATHER PART II (1974)
DIRECTOR Francis Ford Coppola
CAST Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Robert Duvall,
Diane Keaton
ADG $202 million
Arguments over which Godfather is greater, the
first or second, began as soon as the sequel was
released. The first film has the edge among this
polls respondents, but Part II has die-hard fans as
well. Its one of those movies, says producer
Albert Berger, that has every element of cinema
working at the highest level. And its entertaining,
and it says something about our country.
E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL (1982)
DIRECTOR Steven Spielberg
CAST Henry Thomas, Drew Barrymore, Dee Wallace
ADG $989 million
Its the first Spielberg film on the list but hardly
the last (he has seven). And it totally makes sense
that E.T. would be his most popular because its
basically The Wizard of Oz in reverse. Think about
it: A 3-foot-tall munchkin lands on Earth, where
hes befriended by a trio of locals (and their little dog)
who help him phone to no-place-like-home until,
at the end, where does E.T. go in his spaceship?
Thats right over the rainbow. I never thought
of that before, said Spielberg a few years ago when
the theory was presented to him. Do you mind if I
steal that?
2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY (1968)
DIRECTOR Stanley Kubrick
CAST Keir Dullea, Gary Lockwood, William Sylvester
ADG $344 million
It was the first outer-space movie to take outer
space and special
effects seriously
(so seriously Kubrick
had the sets destroyed
after production to
make sure they didnt
turn up in subsequent
inferior sci-fi films).
Sure, it creaks beside
its successors, includ-
ing Close Encounters
and Star Wars, but
2001 does have one of
the most famous
match-cuts in movie
history (the bone
turning into a space-
ship). And even though
the smooth-talking
computer in the film
has an operating system
thats 46 years old,
people still want to own it: The HAL 9000 app on
iTunes has been downloaded an estimated quarter-
million times.
SCHINDLERS LIST (1993)
DIRECTOR Steven Spielberg
CAST Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Kingsley
ADG $183 million
The most shocking thing about this emotionally
wrenching black-and-white drama isnt that
its about an act of heartbreaking kindness during
the Holocaust; its that Spielberg released it only
months after his other big hit of 1993, the one with
the dinosaurs. Unlike Jurassic Park, this film took
home seven Oscars, including best director and best
picture (the first black-and-white movie to win that
statuette since 1960s The Apartment).

scratched Spielbergs itch to make

Fiction (No. 5) also were nomi-
nated that year.
GONE WITH

DIRECTOR Victor Fleming
CAST Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh
ADG $1.6 billion
Its still the longest film to win
best picture (nearly four hours)
and the first to have an African-

Coppola
CAST Martin Sheen, Marlon
Brando, Robert Duvall

Harvey Keitel got fired.
Brando showed up overweight

Star Wars set the bar for lots

structure, the number of aliens
that can fit comfortably into a

F-bomb more than any other
movie up till then (300 times).
It was surpassed last year by
The Wolf of Wall Street, which
used the F-word 569 times.
ITS A WONDERFUL
LIFE (1946)
DIRECTOR Frank Capra
CAST James Stewart,
Donna Reed
ADG n/a
It was Capras favorite, and
Stewarts, too, but it bombed
when it first was released. Like
George Bailey, though, it got a
second chance, becoming a
holiday classic thanks to endless
Christmas TV showings.
CHINATOWN (1974)
DIRECTOR Roman Polanski
CAST Jack Nicholson,
Faye Dunaway
ADG $124 million
This is the first of three
Nicholson films to make the 100.
But hes beaten by Robert Duvall
and Robert De Niro (both with
four) and by Marlon Brando and
Harrison Ford (with five apiece).
THE SILENCE OF THE
LAMBS (1991)
DIRECTOR Jonathan Demme
CAST Jodie Foster,
Anthony Hopkins
ADG $247 million
The only horror film ever to
win best picture. It also won
best director, adapted screenplay,
actress and actor (for Hopkins
25-minute turn, the second-
shortest performance to win that
trophy behind Peter Finchs in
Network).
LAWRENCE OF
ARABIA (1962)
DIRECTOR David Lean
CAST Peter OToole,
Alec Guinness, Anthony Quinn,
Omar Sharif
ADG $426 million
Steven Spielberg once
estimated that remaking it today
would cost close to $300 million.
Also, these days, theyd probably
need to add some estrogen; the
227-minute movie has not a single
line spoken by a woman.
JAWS (1975)
DIRECTOR Steven Spielberg
CAST Roy Scheider, Robert
Shaw, Richard Dreyfuss
ADG $1 billion
The original summer block-
buster. It cost only $9 million to
make and grossed nearly as much
its first weekend alone. And
yet the shark still looks fake.
THE SOUND
OF MUSIC (1965)
DIRECTOR Robert Wise
CAST Julie Andrews,
Christopher Plummer
ADG $1.13 billion
Such a cheery spirit-lifter,
during the Cold War the BBC
reportedly planned to air the film
after a nuclear strike to improve
the morale of survivors. So
Long, Farewell being the perfect
postapocalyptic melody.
SINGIN IN
THE RAIN (1952)
DIRECTORS Stanley Donen,
Gene Kelly
CAST Gene Kelly, Donald
OConnor, Debbie Reynolds
ADG $1.7 million
Reynolds once said that
making this film and giving birth
were the two hardest things
shed ever done. Kelly reportedly
was a tyrant on the set.
THE BREAKFAST
CLUB (1985)
DIRECTOR John Hughes
CAST Emilio Estevez, Judd
Nelson, Molly Ringwald, Anthony
Michael Hall, Paul Gleason,
John Kapelos, Ally Sheedy
ADG $103 million
More proof that men and
women are different: Hughes
after-school detention drama
was the ninth most-popular
film for female respondents, but
75th for males.
THE GRADUATE (1967)
DIRECTOR Mike Nichols
CAST Dustin Hoffman,
Anne Bancroft, Katharine Ross
ADG $680 million
Which of these actresses was
not considered for Mrs. Robinson:
Deborah Kerr, Judy Garland,
Lana Turner, Rita Hayworth, Doris
Day, Shelley Winters, Ava Gardner,
Patricia Neal or Ingrid Bergman?
Trick question: All supposedly
were up for the part.
BLADE RUNNER (1982)
DIRECTOR Ridley Scott
CAST Harrison Ford,
Rutger Hauer, Sean Young
ADG $75 million
Despite studio tinkering
(adding a voiceover, slapping in
aerial footage shot for Kubricks
The Shining to give the ending a
sunny feel), it remains the ulti-
mate noir sci-fi detective movie.
ONE FLEW OVER THE
CUCKOOS NEST (1975)
DIRECTOR Milos Forman
CAST Jack Nicholson,
Louise Fletcher, Will Sampson
ADG $427 million
Kirk Douglas optioned
Ken Keseys book in the early 60s
but decided he was too old to
play McMurphy, so he gave the
rights to his son, Michael, who
produced it instead.
THE PRINCESS
BRIDE (1987)
DIRECTOR Rob Reiner
CAST Cary Elwes, Robin Wright,
Mandy Patinkin
ADG $63 million
Hardly anyone saw Rob
Reiners adaptation of William
Goldmans comic-fantasy
novel in theaters. But this was
back when video could
create a cult hit and thats
precisely what happened.
THE EMPIRE
STRIKES BACK (1980)
DIRECTOR Irvin Kershner
CAST Mark Hamill,
Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher
ADG $628 million
An almost Shakespearean
tragedy. The hero loses a
hand but gains a father. And
his best friend is frozen solid.
Try and imagine the second
installment of another giant sci-fi
franchise that ends on such a
downer. Go ahead.
FARGO (1996)
DIRECTORS Joel and
Ethan Coen
CAST Frances McDormand,
William H. Macy
ADG $44 million
This is one of four films on the
list to have inspired hit TV shows
that are current Emmy contenders.
The other shows are Bonnie and
Clyde, Hannibal and Bates Motel.
AMERICAN BEAUTY (1999)
DIRECTOR Sam Mendes
CAST Kevin Spacey,
Annette Bening
ADG $198 million
Chevy Chase, Kevin Costner,
and John Travolta all reportedly
were considered for the part
of Lester Burnham (which,
incidentally, is an anagram
for Humbert learns, one of the
films many hat tips to Lolita).

Actually, neither Ryan ONeal nor Ali MacGraw agrees
with Love Storys most famous line, as the two stars
remember what it was like to be in 1970s version of
The Fault in Our Stars, directed by Arthur Hiller
and No. 5 on the list of greatest tearjerkers of all time
www.thr.com | THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER | 67
RYAN ONEAL AND ALI MACGRAW
FROM LOVE STORY (1970)
ONeal and MacGraw were photographed by
Austin Hargrave on June 18 at One Gun Ranch in
Malibu. For an exclusive behind-the-scenes
video interview, go to THR.com or THR.com/iPad.

T O P T E A R J E R K E R S
1. Titanic
2. The Way We Were
3. Doctor Zhivago
4. Terms of Endearment
5. Love Story
How did each of you get cast in Love Story?
ONEAL She married the head of the studio!
[Robert Evans, then-chief of Paramount,
was MacGraws husband before she married
Steve McQueen.]
MACGRAW I was sent the movie, read it and
cried mustve been the full moon or something!
Did they make you do chemistry reads?
MACGRAW No. We had no chemistry. We just
slogged through it as best we could. (Laughs.)
ONEAL I never wanted it to end. I never wanted
her to die!
MACGRAW Making it was actually unbelievably
fun the whole time; I was stupid and new enough
in the business to think it was always like that.
Ryan had worked a lot; I hadnt. Everyone on the
crew cried periodically during filming. But even
though we were setting up this heart-wrenching
story, we laughed for three months, as well.
ONEAL Its the best time I ever had on a movie.
And Ive made thousands!
MACGRAW Ive made six.
What do you remember about the weekend
the lm opened?
ONEAL It was 1970.
MACGRAW Dec. 16. And just what you think
happened, happened. It was an instant hit all
over the world. I remember at the premiere,
more interesting than watching the movie was
listening to the audience blowing their noses
and crying. Men and women. It was shocking! It
was at the Loews theater on Broadway in New
York, it was snowing. It was pretty magical, with
everybody sniveling away. Especially [MacGraws
former agent] Sue Mengers. Remember?
ONEAL She cried like a baby.
MACGRAW To this day, I go to the strangest
places India, Africa, South America and
people know the movie. Maybe because there
really wasnt a lot of dialogue?
Love is universal, after all.
ONEAL Love does mean never having to say
youre sorry for goodness sake.
That, of course, is the most famous line from
that lm, which, in hindsight, is maybe not
the best relationship advice.
MACGRAW Its a crock!
ONEAL Youd better say youre sorry!
How often do you see each other now?
ONEAL Ali moved away to the Wild West.
MACGRAW My house burned down in 93, so I
moved to New Mexico.
ONEAL We dont see each other as often as
we should.
Your cozy rapport suggests otherwise.
ONEAL I love her and have always loved her.
MACGRAW Thats very sweet.
ONEAL She just didnt love me!
MACGRAW Theres a line around the block of
[ONeals] broken hearts.
ONEAL Once, I was driving and came to a stop-
light. These guys in the next car asked me, Are
you Beau Bridges? I said, No, Im Steve McQueen.
Thats as close as I ever got. STACEY WILSON S

The beautiful thing about the evening was that we went
together, recalls Chakiris of the night he and Moreno
picked up Oscars for their performances as Bernardo
and Anita in West Side Story. My category was called
rst, and I got lucky. And then Rita got lucky. What a
perfect night. Moreno recalls it slightly dierently. By
the time my category came up, it was very late. I had to
wait a long time. At that point, West Side Story had
swept the awards, and I thought, My Puerto Rican luck;
Ill be the only one who doesnt get an award. When
her name was called, she walked to the podium and
delivered one of the briefest speeches ever for an Oscar.
I dont believe it. Good Lord. I leave you with that. Says
Moreno: I was not ready to win. I had nothing planned.
Moreno and Chakiris were photographed by
Christopher Patey on June 19 at Morenos home in
Berkeley, Calif. For exclusive behind-the-scenes

THE DOUBLE-
EDGED BLADE
OF PLASTIC
SURGERY
Beverly Hills is where the worlds
rich and famous come to be made
beautiful. But, as the bizarre
and very public suicide of plastic
surgery patient Sandra DAuriol
in January proved, some things
cant be fxed with a scalpel
The corner of
Camden Drive
and Brighton Way
in Beverly Hills
was cordoned o
Jan. 22, when
DAuriol jumped
to her death from
a medical plaza.
EVEN BEFORE SANDRA DAURIOL
leaped to her death from a medical plaza
roofop around 10 a.m. on Wednesday,
Jan. 22, Beverly Hills was traumatized.
The 53-year-old Hong Kong-based
jewelry designer, then still unidentifed,
had spent hours lingering at the edge
of the building at 414 N. Camden Drive, a premier address for
top cosmetic specialists. She was naked, her legs dangling
over the precipice more than 150 feet in the air and only a few
yards down the street from Bravo star Lisa Vanderpumps
restaurant Villa Blanca (Very sad, Vanderpump tweeted that
day, terrible scene) and the ofces of WME, where agents
and assistants couldnt peel their eyes away from their windows.
As time ticked by, and police and DAuriols husband, Yan,
a former LOreal executive, desperately begged her to come
to her senses from atop the roof, dark chatter percolated
through nearby physicians suites. It soon was learned that the
woman had undergone a 13-hour face-lif in that very same
building the previous day by A-list plastic surgeon Dr. Brian
Novack, whose discreet client list is said to include Demi
Moore and Meg Ryan. Afer awakening earlier that morning in
Novacks 10th-foor ofce in an unexplained panic, she fought

with a nurse and outran a security guard upstairs to the roof.
Shes probably jumping because she saw the bill, one neigh-
boring stafer grimly observed to colleagues before DAuriol
leaped. (Novack is known for charging some of the highest rates
in Beverly Hills, as much as $150,000 for a face-lif.) Speculative
theories quickly circulated: that shed taken her bandages of too
soon and didnt like what she saw, that shed had a bad reaction to
her medication, that shed sufered an unrelated psychotic break.

SPECIAL
REPORT
74 | THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER | 07.18.14 ILLUSTRATIONS BY Alexandra Compain-Tissier
Five months later, the cause of DAuriols death remains sub-
ject to speculation. Although the Los Angeles County Coroner
has listed it as postoperation psychosis clinical, and DAuriols
family released a statement attesting that her fall appears
to be linked to a postoperative neurobehavioral disturbance in
which the Sandra we knew and loved for her calm, positive
disposition never regained consciousness, the details of what
led to her suicide remain shrouded in doubt. The Beverly Hills
Police Department has pursued an investigation into criminal
negligence, and a malpractice suit appears imminent. Neither
DAuriols family nor Novack would discuss the incident with
THR. Cases like these tend to be settled out of court, say law-
yers, with the fndings forever sealed.
Yet despite the informational vacuum, the incident caught
on camera phones and uploaded to YouTube, where haunting
footage of DAuriol still can be seen continues to reverberate
as a symbol of the strange, specialized and secretive aesthetic
empire synonymous, perhaps second only to celebrity, with
If I have a
patient who
has to ask what
the fees are,
they probably
need to go

else. Dr. Mani
Beverly Hills. Despite its seemingly bizarre singularity, the events
of Jan. 22 refected trends both real (the ever-more-crucial-
to-the-bottom-line importance of deep-pocketed international
clientele) and perhaps implied (the mental woes of patients
who arrive at LAX hoping that a procedure is the answer to what
troubles them).
Abroad, media outlets have latched on to the disturbing
mystery of how the respected DAuriol could meet such an igno-
minious end. In addition to her jade-oriented jewelry business,
she had worked for Asprey, a supplier to the British royal family,
and was an active philanthropist, co-founding the Nepal-based
Child Welfare Scheme. Many reports noted that the DAuriols
had sufered devastating misfortune: Their 12-year-old son,
Teo, one of three children, died in 2004 from a swimming acci-
dent on the fnal day of a family vacation in Bali.
But it is among the Beverly Hills plastic surgery communitys
own patients and physicians most of the latter view Novack
(whose record with the California Medical Board otherwise is
unblemished) with a could have been any of us wariness that
the story has resonated most powerfully. Was DAuriols death a
terrible fuke, or did it suggest something sinister about the way
the industry works?
B
EVERLY HILLS, WHOSE BRAND IS GLAMOUR,
possesses the highest density of fesh sculptors anywhere
in the country. Seventy-nine doctors currently are listed
on the American Society of Plastic Surgeons roster for the city
of 35,000. (Compare this with 47 for the entirety of the city of
Los Angeles, population 3.9 million.) Its absolutely a substan-
tial part of the business base here, says Alexander Stettinski,
executive director of the local chamber of commerce. Their
discreet upper-foor suites clustered, for the most part, in
the towns Golden Triangle commercial district overlook the
passing pretty-people parade along a few choice blocks west
of Rodeo Drive: Camden, Bedford, Brighton, Roxbury, Linden
and Spalding.
Its been this way since the days when Marilyn Monroe would
duck into the Bedford Drive suite of cosmetic surgery specialist
Dr. Michael Gurdin during the 1950s and early 60s to fx her
chin implant (made of carved cow cartilage in the days before
silicone implants) and correct her broken nose. This area
used to be called Couch Canyon, because of all of the psycho-
analysts in session, says Dr. Norman Leaf, who eventually
took over Gurdins practice. But when Prozac and such got
started, they lef and surgicenters took over.
The more than two dozen Beverly Hills plastic surgeons with
whom THR spoke for this story describe a competitive but
scrupulous realm, one inextricably bound to the global market.
Some practices now draw as many as a third of their patients
from beyond American borders, especially the Middle East
(Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are tops), Asia
(China, South Korea), Russia and the U.K.
Word of mouth is, as always, important especially in certain
tightly knit cities. Hong Kong and Singapore are small towns,
at least in terms of their elite, says Dr. Marc Mani. A few of
the most enterprising physicians, such as Mani and Dr. Jason
Diamond, regularly fy to foreign capitals for brief stints to
perform surgery to spread the word and drum up new business.
But more ofen, its referral services and search engine-opti-
mized websites that yield consultations. Observes Dr. Andrew
Ordon, Proof is that so many have created sites with multiple
languages: Chinese, Russian, Arabic.

WHEN TALKING ABOUT
plastic surgery in Beverly Hills,
the procedure is only half of
the story. The recovery period,
which is longer and more
painful, also has its dedicated
facilities. They sit perched
on the edge of Beverly Hills,
just outside city limits because
go gure zoning in the
city doesnt allow for overnight
patient care (except in special,
pre-approved instances).
The aftercare industry, which
was pioneered, naturally, in
the shadow of unnatural
Hollywood, began during the
70s then blossomed until
almost every hotel I can think
of in the Beverly Hills area
had at some point that type of
facility, says Dr. David Hopp,
president of the Beverly Hills
chapter of the Los Angeles
County Medical Association.
Since the heyday of the 90s and
aughts, however, the business
has contracted to the point
of being virtually unnoticeable.
The zoning laws always had
been on the books but were
not strictly observed until the
industry began to grow. Since
then, many businesses have
burnished their reputation by
using Beverly Hills in their
name, even though they didnt
fall in its ZIP code.
Two very dierent aftercares
have shaken out as leaders.
Serenity in Santa Monica
is the only hospital-certied
aftercare in the region per-
haps in the nation. Run by
two brothers, it generally is
lled to its capacity of two
dozen patients. Called the gold
standard by Dr. Lawrence M.
Koplin, a prominent Beverly Hills
surgeon, Serenity vets doctors
before accepting patient refer-
rals from them.
If Serenity resembles a hos-
pital equipped with hotel-like
suites, then Pearl Recovery
professionals in the business.
So where do all the patients go?
Some opt for smaller facilities,
such as Majestic Recovery
in Westwood and Beverly Hills
Surgical Aftercare. More and
more patients, though, are
hiring nurses to spend a night
or two in their own home,
celebrity-style, away from pry-
ing eyes. Observing this trend,
Michelle Farrell expanded her
at-home nursing services by
hiring fellow registered nurses
to launch 90210 Aftercare in
2010. About 25 percent of the
companys clients are in
the entertainment business.
What happens in aftercare?
If all goes well, not a lot. A
typical scenario: The patient is
transported in a tinted-window
luxury car, with a nurse atten-
dant, to a private, unmarked
entrance. He or she is led to
an adjustable bed and oered
something to eat. Meds are
administered, if needed, and
the patient is monitored.
Complications from standard
plastic surgery procedures
are not common but can be
serious when they do occur.
Hematomas, or pooling blood
from a broken blood vessel,
need to be drained quickly and
are the type of problem spotted
faster by an RN than a layper-
son. Once I had a bleeder,
recalls RN Maggie Lockridge
of an aftercare patient. She
fainted twice, and it was hard
to revive her, so I called 911.
She had 4 quarts of blood in
her belly. Had she gone home
from surgery, she would have
bled to death.
Lockridge probably has
cared for more post-plastic
surgery patients than any other
aftercare RN. But she didnt
pioneer the idea. That honor
goes to Severyn Ashkenazy,
onetime owner of the Beverly
Hills hotel LErmitage. During
the late 70s, he observed
bandaged patients using the
hotels secondary underground
entrance and holing up for up
to a week. Seizing the oppor-
tunity, he bought an adjacent
building in the 80s and dubbed
it Le Petit Ermitage (not to
be confused with the current
West Hollywood hotel of the
same name). There, he hired
Lockridge, who decorated the
two stories in European nery.
It was so plush! recalls Dr.
Hopp. Gorgeous rooms, lots of
nursing sta, beautiful linens.
All my patients went there.
As with most aftercares that
followed it, Le Petit Hermitage
maintained a 3-to-1 ratio of
patients to nurses.
Shenanigans at Le Petit
Ermitage included Joan Rivers
kibitzing in full mummy mode
with invited friends; a female
rock star, whom Lockridge says
was a known drug addict,
throwing an ashtray at her;
and an ex of a Malibu-based
music mogul using said record
producers credit card, against
his wishes, for a deluxe
stay. A porn star cavorted with
a young man on her suites
balcony, and another patient
spouted blood from his face-lift
drains while hooking up with a
fellow invalid. Good times.
Le Petit Ermitages only
competition in the 80s and
90s was Hidden Garden, a
nine-room facility barely a
mile away. The latter suered
when James Browns wife
Adrienne died there in 1996 fol-
lowing liposuction (turns out it
was heart disease and PCP use
that did her in, according to
the coroner). Hidden Garden
moved to Westwood and
later closed, following Le Petit
Ermitage, which closed in 1993.
Today, competition among
aftercare facilities keeps nightly
rates under $1,000. And even
though that type of money can
buy an in-home nurse, away
from strangers eyes or tourists
marauding through your
hotel wing, many see that as
a less-than-ideal scenario.
More than 50 percent of our
clients have young kids at
home, says Nikki Simon, of
the Beverly Hills Physicians
chain of surgery centers. You
want to recuperate in a place
where you can concentrate on
yourself rather than worrying
about your children.
Adds Dr. Koplin, If you
recover in a [hospital-style]
bed and someone can be
up with you 24 hours with ice
on your eyes, you get better
faster. And for a lot of people,
thats worth it.
Pearl in Beverly Hills
is the type of posh
aftercare facility that is
being edged out by a rise
in home-nursing options.
Used to be that you could see Joan Rivers kibitz in full mummy
mode and a hookup happen with blood spurting from face-lif
drains. Now, oddly, post-op facilities are on the decline BY LAURIE PIKE

For some media-savvy local doctors, however, what attracts
the most clients is, fttingly, their own celebrity. Makeover and
medical reality TV shows involving cosmetic procedures, in which
being identifed as a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon is the ulti-
mate signifer of status and expertise, are distributed across the
globe, ofen for years afer they frst air. They prove to be market-
ing gifs that keep on giving. Dr. Linda Li, who starred on E!s Dr.
90210 for fve seasons, says the show made the biggest difer-
ence for her. Even though it stopped airing in 2008, she adds,
people still watch it around the world. Its on Netfix!
Yet the most considerable lure of all is the one least mentioned
publicly by these physicians: the famous faces who have had work
done in Beverly Hills operating rooms. You hear about so many
people over there the stars having cosmetic surgeries, says
a 42-year-old housewife from Australia who saw Dr. Stuart Linder
for corrective breast augmentation in 2011. I thought, Well,
theyve got to be good! A British executive, also 42, explains
the appeal of going to doctors who work on celebrities. They
work on people who have a camera inches from their face,
she says. They have to look like perfection. To have the bags
removed from under her eyes, she sought out Dr. Leslie Stevens
afer Sharon Osbourne identifed him as her surgeon.
Such widely disseminated programs as Dr. 90210 and The
Doctors have lifed the profles not just of the particular doctors
who appear on the shows but of anyone operating in Beverly
Hills. Theres this aura of Hollywood and a certain branding,
says Dr. Robin T.W. Yuan of the local scene. The perception is
one thing that we live of of.
If price is no object, the fve-star Peninsula hotel, a mere scal-
pels toss from several prime medical buildings, has emerged
as the go-to choice for out-of-towners, starting at $570 a night;
the relatively more budget-minded tend to fock to the boutique
Mosaic a block east.
Probably
a third, or at
least a ffh, of
the patients we
see are on some
kind of anti-
depressant.
Although they
are probably
overprescribed.
Dr. Fisher
The type of patients who come to Beverly Hills from overseas
tend not to be afected by price, say doctors (who, among the
A-list, can pull in annual incomes of up to the mid-single-digit
millions). And they frequently pay in cash. Eye-lifs, nose jobs
and vaginal tightening in Beverly Hills start these days in the
$5,000 to $10,000 range, while face-lifs begin at $20,000. (Most
popular still? Breast augmentation.) Full body-lifs the most
expensive operation, an all-in-one procedure that reshapes the
patients entire body: hips, thighs, buttocks, abdomen, breasts,
back, etc. can top out at $250,000. If I have a patient who has
to ask about what the fees are, says Mani, they probably need
to go somewhere else.
One inviolable rule: Any procedure that involves a correction
of someone elses work will add to the price, likely sizably.
Revisions do cost more, says Dr. J. Gerald Minniti. It has
to do with the fact that its harder to fx a problem with scar
tissue and the changes in the rest of the tissues.
G
ENERALLY, BEVERLY HILLS PROCEDURE REQUESTS
run the gamut, regardless of geography, yet certain
regional preferences predominate. Middle Easterners
who, observes Mani, tend to have more humps on the bridge
of their nose avail themselves of rhinoplasty more fre-
quently than others. (Men, though, tend to want to maintain
their ethnicity, according to Ordon, while women want
a more stylized nose: I get a lot of Angelina Jolie.) Central
and South Americans frequently are most interested in boost-
ing their curves. The Latinas like the J.Lo look, says Linder.
Aside from well-known eyelid surgery, Asian clients ofen seek
a rounder face via jaw work as well as calf reductions. Its
very undesirable to have thick calves in Asia, says Rosenberg.
I thought Id heard of everything.
Yet most foreign clients travel to Beverly Hills for the same
straightforward reason Angelenos visit their local plastic sur-
geons: They simply want to look rejuvenated. Face-lifs, tummy
tucks and all of the other standard anti-gravity and back-in-
time measures are the most common, as the sizable majority of
patients are female and middle-aged, like DAuriol. A refresher,
I like to call it, says Donna Wolfe, a luxury concierge with a
frm called Plaza Travel who handles arrangements for Dr. Cat
Begovics burgeoning international client list and who had
her own eyes done last year. Im from L.A.; thats what we do.
Says a 52-year-old South African female fashion merchandis-
ing executive who received a chin implant and an eye-lif from
Diamond: Everybody I know and work with including my
kids say to me, You look so refreshed and happy. No one has
said, What did you do? The only part that I think was a little
tough was you know when a dog has to wear a cone around
their neck? I had to wear that cone around my neck for the
frst week. You get used to it, though. And it was worth it. You
know what they say: Beauty is pain.
A
LTHOUGH DR. NOVACKS PROMINENT COLLEAGUES
in Beverly Hills wont speculate publicly about the
DAuriol incident, its clear they have been shaken by
it. Its really, really tough, says one. We live in a world where
we dont have all of the answers.
They are, however, keen to talk, in light of her death, about
what they see as the misunderstood challenges of their jobs. It
stands to reason, and has been backed up by studies, that people
who seek out plastic surgery sufer far higher than normal
incidences of depression, anxiety, body dysmorphic disorder
and other mental conditions. A 2007 report in the journal Annals
of Plastic Surgery found that suicide was up to three times
higher for women who have breast-augmentation surgery. We
have found that about 20 percent of people coming in for
a procedure are on some sort of psychiatric medication, mainly

antidepressants, says Dr. David B. Sarwer, a professor of psy-
chology at the University of Pennsylvanias medical school and
a leading researcher on the psychological dimensions of cosmetic
procedures (the percentage of the general population on psychi-
atric medication is roughly the same 20 percent). Adds Dr. Garth
Fisher, known in Beverly Hills for his lifs: Probably a third, or

Complicating matters is the fact that patients ofen are less

comes for a consultation, the interview is a two-way street, says
Dr. Michael J. Groth, who specializes in eyelids and eyebrows.
They are interviewing you as a doctor, but you are also inter-
viewing them as a potential patient, and there are red fags. For
instance, if they deny having plastic surgery in the past, but you
see incision lines. Or people who say they have chronic pain but
dont tell you the full extent of the pain medication they use, or
claim its more for sleeping.
Drug use, both prescription and illicit, is a particularly sensi-
tive area. Patients come in, and the night before theyve been
doing drugs, and theyll say, I dont do that at all, he says. We
dont want to judge anybody, but patients lie and [when they
are confronted], they say theyre worried that their surgeries
would be canceled. Thats what they are concerned about! Not
how those drugs would mix with the drugs they are being given
during surgery. Observes Francesca Camp, a veteran plastic
surgery consultant and author of the forthcoming Do I Need
It (And What If I Do)?: Some of these patients are pros they
know what to say to [their doctors] to make themselves look
stable and pass.
Malpractice attorney Stephen Fraser, who defended Michael
Jacksons former dermatologist Arnold Klein in a 2004 suit
brought by producer Irena Medavoy over Botox and migraines,
notes that doctors are easily fooled by dishonest patients.
One of the biggest difculties that these [elective-surgery]
physicians have is dealing with patients whom they arent
seeing routinely, he says. Where else did this patient get
medication? Theres only so much you can do in terms of
inquiry. Then you have to rely on the patients veracity. A lot
of times patients who are taking Percocet or Valium are get-
ting them from multiple providers. Fraser adds: It places an
inordinate burden on the surgeon.
The results can be lethal when caregivers fnd themselves
caught of-guard by reactions to drugs used during a procedure
(like anesthesia) or aferward (pain-suppression medication).
One hypothesis for DAuriols behavior that circulated widely
in the media and among physicians is that it was an extreme
case of emergence delirium, a temporary postoperative state
linked to anesthesia that afects roughly 5 percent of patients.
DAuriols brother-in-law Guy told the South China Morning Post
on Feb. 3 that the family is concerned about the side efects
and impact of anesthesia: We can only hope this leads to bet-
ter, less-risky drugs.
Yet one veteran anesthesiologist tells THR that unrelated
drugs mixing with anesthesia itself can cause delirium. You
put the person to sleep assuming they told you the correct
story, says this doctor. Some people f around with their
drugs at home, ofentimes these powerful benzos like Xanax
and Valium, and they dont believe in giving a truthful history.
So they wake up with a lot of medicine in their system, which
can create a cascade efect with what their anesthesiologist gave
them for surgery.
about three-quarters of individuals with BDD seek out cosmetic
surgery. BDD is troublesome, says Dr. William Dzwierzynski,
a professor of plastic surgery at the Medical College of Wisconsin.
Theres a high incidence of suicide and violence toward others,
including the surgeon. These are people who will never be satis-
fed with their body and the work.
Dr. Andrew Frankel, a Beverly Hills rhinoplasty specialist,
notes that BDD manifests itself in several diferent ampli-
tudes, making it hard to diagnose. You can see it coming from
a mile away, or it can be very subtle, he says. Every single
patient coming for elective work is really coming for a psycho-
logical boost.
Cosmetic practitioners ostensibly screen for BDD and other
psychological issues with brief, standardized questionnaires.
But do most plastic surgeons even use them? No, says
Dzwierzynski. They use the gestalt feeling: This patient rubs
me wrong.
It may be the pressures of a competitive marketplace, or
perhaps its just the nature of a specialty that caters to vanity,
but plastic surgeons ofen are loath to probe deeply into the
mental health of their patients for fear of, as Dzwierzynski puts
it, scaring away their would-be clientele.
Ideally youd send everyone to a psychological evaluation,
says Dr. Raj Kanodia, another Beverly Hills physician known
for his skill sculpting noses. But in reality, its not practical,
not feasible. The patient will say, Why should I go? Concurs

cosmetic surgeons say their biggest issues with patients
ofen have to do with unrealistic expectations. Most
disappointment with surgery isnt a bad result, says Groth.
Its an unmet expectation. They wanted to look like their
high school photograph. Now they look better but not that
much better. Adds Fisher: Its all about managing expecta-
tions. People who come in saying perfect too much worry me.
The worst issues arise from those who sufer from body
dysmorphic disorder, or BDD, which manifests itself as exces-
sive, obsessively negative thoughts about perceived, ofen
minor physical faws. Research has shown that while less than
5 percent of cosmetic surgery patients sufer from BDD,

ON MARCH 18, PRETTY LITTLE
Liars brought Twitter to a fevered
pitch when in the fnal minutes
of the season-four fnale, the villain
known as A nearly was exposed
by a beloved character, Ezra, who
found himself taking a bullet to pro-
tect the main characters. His unclear
fate was magnifed by the worldwide-
trending #IsEzraAlive hashtag and
drove PLLs highest tweet volume for
the year with 1.45 million. The fnale
is the top tweeted television episode
on Twitter to date for 2014.
Fueled by an enviable online
presence 13.7 million Facebook
fans, 2.22 million on Twitter and
668,000 Instagram followers
its no wonder PLL, whose median
viewer age is 21, has become
the how-to in keeping an elusive
demographic, younger viewers,
deeply engaged. While live viewer-
ship among the younger set has
been declining in favor of gaming
consoles and mobile devices,
according to a 2013 Nielsen cross-
platform report, PLL has bucked
the trend, pulling in night-of view-
ing with steadily increasing ratings.
(Season four averaged 2.7 million
viewers in time-shifed viewing
among the target 12-to-34 demo, up
from 2.5 million in season two.)
In an environment where TV has
become fragmented, the show has
become stable, and theyre watch-
ing it live, says Leslie Morgenstein,
CEO of Alloy Entertainment.
Warner Bros. TV Group president
Peter Roth says the property com-
pares well against the rest of the
studios portfolio: Pretty Little Liars
has resonated about as much as
anything weve ever done. Adds net-
work president Tom Ascheim, who
on June 10 secured ABC Familys
No. 1 series with a rare two-season
pickup, This is our version of the
Super Bowl.
So how does the creative team do
it? By allowing its viewers a sig-
nifcant place in the PLL universe,
driven by a social footprint that is
disproportionately large compared
to its traditional ratings (averag-
ing 3.9 million total viewers in
live-plus-7). It is the third-most-
tweeted-about 2013-14 series afer
Breaking Bad and The Walking
Dead, with an average reach of
4.8 million users, trumping Game
of Thrones (3.5 million users vs.
9.3 million viewers of the June 15
season fnale). Life is extended
beyond the TV screen by continu-
ing the conversation year-round,
through plot-specifc hashtags,
Facebook apps and targeted use
of Twitter and Instagram. The social
media space is where the shows
core audience lives: 31 percent of
Twitter users fall under 30, com-
pared with only 19 percent for
adults 30-to-49, according to Pew
Research. Pretty Little Liars does
a good job of meeting fans where
they are, says Jenn Deering Davis,
co-founder of Union Metrics.
They were one of the frst shows
to spend signifcant investment
on social media. Even before PLL
debuted, a Twitter account was
created in 2010, the same time
Twitter found its legs, says actress
Troian Bellisario, 28. We dont
have watercooler talk the next day;
we have watercooler talk the minute
it happens as youre watching the
episode. Danielle Mullin, vp mar-
keting at ABC Family who now
oversees a dedicated team of six to
10 live tweeters per episode says,
We were very surprised. The initial
reaction on Facebook was a sign
of this incredible hit on our hands.
Based on Sara Shepards YA
novels, PLL revolves around four
aspirationally dressed teen girls
Aria, Hanna, Emily and Spencer
living in Rosewood, Pa., who
are stalked by a faceless A afer
their friend, Alison, mysteriously
disappears. Developed at Warner
Bros.-owned book-packaging/
production company Alloy in 2004,
the premise came out of a desire
to launch a teen equivalent to
the biggest soap at the time, ABCs
Desperate Housewives. PLLs
TV success extended the life of
Shepards best-selling novels from
eight to 16 books, the fnal one
hitting shelves in December, and
created ancillary product lines. In
February, the show spun of the
network-mandated edgy-yet-aford-
able wardrobe in an Aeropostale
partnership with costumer Mandi
Line (a summer collection launched
in June). The show also features
musical acts that refect its moody
DNA, such as MS MR, Lily Lane
and ZZ Ward. And before the
shows 2010 premiere, The Pierces

Before Fault in Our Stars, ABC Family smash Pretty Little Liars

en masse for the right entertainment (#socialmediahelpstoo) By Philiana Ng
From left: Hale as
Aria, Mitchell as

the 100th episode,
Miss Me x 100,
airing July 8.
U.S. retailers; aferward, sales
nearly tripled to 129,000, per Nielsen
SoundScan.
Led by Lucy Hale, 25; Bellisario;
Ashley Benson, 24; Shay Mitchell,
27; and Sasha Pieterse, 18, who
have more than 11.3 million Twitter
followers combined, the series
the frst Warner Horizon scripted
production and second ABC Family
show to hit 100 episodes made
a splash in 2010 for the network,
which had Shailene Woodleys teen
pregnancy drama The Secret Life
of the American Teenager and was
itching for an identity jolt. Recalls
Kate Juergens, ABC Family chief
creative ofcer, about former presi-
dent Paul Lees greenlighting the
show: It allowed us to get sexy in a
way we hadnt before.
To keep storylines accelerated
and the twists at OMG! level for an
audience anxious to dissect every
morsel online, executive producer
I. Marlene King says one of the
early mandates [was]: Dont write
these girls as teenagers, lets write
them as people. For executive
producer Joseph Dougherty (thirty-
something, Judging Amy), there
was no precedent before PLL for
intensely serialized storytelling. A
feud on thirtysomething might last
half a season, he says. With Aria
and Hanna, the network said, Wed
like to accelerate it and let them
get back to being friends. The vola-
tility of adolescent characters lets
you ... structure the story in a way
that lends to crescendos.
Milestone moments on PLL
informed ABC Familys social stunts
and supplemental oferings. Digital
spinof series Pretty Dirty Secrets,
which posted 3.6 million views dur-
ing a season-three break, introduced
a new character, Shana. A lot of
other shows stop tweeting and dont
start again until a month before
the season premiere. Pretty Little
Liars keeps going and that keeps
viewer interest, says Davis. With
an understanding of how young
adults use social media platforms,
PLL leans on Twitter for real-time
updates, Instagram for behind-the-
scenes photos and Tumblr for more
fan-created content, like GIFs. The
real value is letting fans feel like
theyre insiders. Its not just tweeting
at them, its retweeting, replying,
getting talent to tweet, giving special
access, notes Davis.
We want to give value for that
Facebook like or Twitter follow,
adds Mullin, who calls the strategy
that feeds fan speculation with
preview videos, cast messages and
teases responsive marketing.
Davis says PLLs tactics are sophis-
ticated. ABC Family [asks], When
do we get the highest tweets per
minute and at what point in the epi-
sode? How can we nurture that?
Nearly the entire PLL cast and
writing staf are on Twitter, some-
thing Bellisario, who plays Spencer,
had trouble grasping at frst:
It was kind of required by the net-
work. Because we were so popular
on Twitter, it [became] my choice
to be on it because when I wasnt
engaging, there were a lot of people
pretending to be me, which irked
me. How they choose to engage
and how ofen is up to them, though
Dougherty says Twitter has become
slightly managed. ABC Family
provides a digital asset package
before a new episode with sugges-
tions for what they might like to post
along with photos and clips should
they want to use it, says Mullin. The
key is knowing how much informa-
tion to dole out. What weve learned
is to keep the audience engaged
by answering the questions that we
can, that dont invade the personal
lives of the actors or crew, and try
not to give anything away.
In the end, the shows success
comes down to intriguing story-
telling. PLL is a perfect mix of
romance, drama and suspense that
really connects with our viewers
around the world, says Mullin of the
show, which airs in 28 territories and
is the No. 1 drama in its time period
in countries like Italy. When you
have those ingredients, the Internet
and social media provide a fantastic
forum for amplifying the buzz
and pushing conversation viral.

HERE S A CHANCE
HBOs latest drama,
The Lefovers, might
end up being the most
meta show on televi-
sion but maybe not for the
reasons we think. The series, based
on the 2011 book by Tom Perrotta,
focuses on what happens, three
years afer the fact, when an unex-
plained event occurs and 2 percent
of the worlds population vanishes.
One moment they are there;
the next, theyre gone. Some people
witness the disappearances;
others dont (some come closer
than others a mother is making
a call while her crying baby is
in a car seat in the back, and sud-
denly the crying stops and the
baby is gone). The disappearances
cant be explained by religion
though many groups attribute
them to a decision by God, while
others believe theyre clearly the
Rapture. Scientists cant explain
them either, other than to say the
phenomenon is a random event.
You can imagine in what state
that leaves the survivors. There is,
of course, survivor guilt. There is
suicide. There is depression, denial,
alcoholism and random acts of
dubious behavior done in an efort
to feel something anything.
One of the great elements of
Perrottas idea, adapted for televi-
sion and executive produced by
Damon Lindelof (Lost), is there is
no answer.
The pilot, directed by Peter
Berg, probably is the most jarring
hour-plus viewers will see in a
while (and is signifcantly more
random and mysterious than the
other three episodes HBO sent).
But it also is entertaining and
riveting. The subsequent episodes
also seem confdent in tone and
pacing, as if to say, Yes, this is
weird and complicated but
boy, we havent even really begun,
and look how much fun it is.
The series centers on Mapleton,
N.Y., police chief Kevin Garvey
(Justin Theroux), who has a unique
position within the fallout from
the departure. Although he didnt
lose a child or direct loved one like
most, he has lost a lot. His father,
the chief before he was, went crazy
and is in a mental hospital (but
might not actually be crazy despite
talking to people who arent there).
More damaging, his wife, Laurie
(Amy Brenneman), has lef Kevin
and their two children former
college student Tom (Chris Zylka)
and high schooler Jill (Margaret
Qualley) and joined the cult
group the Guilty Remnant,
which dresses all in white, smokes
cigarettes nonstop and doesnt
speak out loud. What it does
is bug the Mapleton survivors by
being omnipresent and weird.
The Guilty Remnant (slogans: We
Are Living Reminders and We
Dont Smoke for Our Enjoyment,
We Smoke to Proclaim Our Faith)
probably needs a seminar in
efective recruitment and messag-
ing because most people outside
the group hate its members and
want to beat them up.
Beyond his family, Kevin
must deal with a lot of emotional
fallout and bizarre behavior.
Perhaps at the top of the list
well, just below the Guilty
Remnant is Dean (Michael
Gaston), a tobacco-chewing odd-
ball who is shooting stray dogs.
Highlighting the storys religious
element is the Rev. Matt Jamison
(Christopher Eccleston, who, like
most of the cast, is marvelous in
every frame). Jamison not only is
a true believer, but also he thinks
its important to point out all
the faws deep, life-destroying
faws of locals who were taken.
The undeserving taint the deserv-
ing, he believes. As a character,
however, he underscores the bigger
themes of transformation Perrotta
and Lindelof are exploring. When
we see his backstory, Jamison
seems less crazy and more kind,
and thus his journey becomes
more intriguing.
Getting the balance right in
Lefovers will be the key to its
success. I felt less enamored with
scattered hints that something
bigger and possibly paranormal
is in play and more intrigued by
normal human reactions to an
epically complex event. If Lindelof
and Perrotta can strike a balance
with the emotional fallout while
also delving into an explanation of
the oddities involved in the sud-
den departure, then The Lefovers
could be one of the more riveting
new series. And it would be nice
for the show to be recognized for
such an achievement rather than
being one people watch to see if
Lindelof can rectify Lost.
Airdate 10 p.m. Sunday, June 29

Lost is in executive producer
Damon Lindelofs past as he turns to
his new HBO meta-spiritual drama
By Aaron Couch
Heating Up
Lefovers
L
OSTS DAMON LINDELOF, 41, IS
returning to TV with the HBO drama
The Lefovers based on the novel by
co-creator and executive producer Tom Perrotta
which begins three years afer a mysterious
event caused 2 percent of the worlds popula-
tion to disappear. In a recent chat with THR,
Lindelof revealed his state of mind, how his
relationship with faith has evolved since
wrapping the pop-culturally seismic ABC sci-f
drama and his thoughts on Twitter.
What is your biggest worry about getting
back into TV?
Theres a certain degree of anxiety about
whether the show is going to connect with
people. Ive never been a writer who could say,
I dont care what people think.
When you started Lost you were grieving the
2002 death of your father, David. Where are you
now as you begin The Leftovers?
I was in my late 30s when Lost ended and was
sort of looking down the barrel of Ive achieved
my wildest dream whats next? That ques-
tion of whats next corresponds thematically
with a lot of the ideas in The Lefovers, as people
try to cope with moving on afer this big event.
People ask me, Are you worried about this
topping Lost? Im not, because I dont need
anything to top Lost. Its done. Its probably
going to be the frst word next to my name in
my obituary, and thats great.
Much of your work has revolved around
faith. How have your views on faith evolved
since Lost?
The older I get and the more experience I
have, the more spiritual I become. When feeling
anxious or scared or alone, my inclination as
a younger person was to conclude that I really
was alone. Now that Im older, I dont feel that
way. My dad died and I met my wife within
a few months of that, so I think that was the
beginning of the change.
Youve said this series wont answer the
question of where the disappeared people went.
After Lost, was that a requirement for you?
Id be experiencing a tremendous amount of
anxiety and worry if we were promising weve
got a big, intricate reveal coming, and what
you see is going to blow your mind. Its very
freeing not worrying about that.
You used to be very active on Twitter but quit
in October. Will you be tempted to check it out
premiere night?
If I wanted to know
the reaction to the
show, there couldnt
be a worse place
to go than Twitter.
People are much
more likely to go
on Twitter to bash
something than
go how awesome
was that?

Michael Bay delivers more cacophonous spectacle in this sequel
that improves on his previous exercises in chaos By Clarence Tsui
Transformers:
Age of Extinction
T
HE AGE OF TRANSFORMERS
is over, announces counter-
intelligence agent Harold
Attinger (Kelsey Grammer) during
the fourth entry in the Paramount/
Hasbro-backed fghting-robots
series. But dont believe it: Given
the recent announcement that a
ffh installment will ship in 2016,
its clear the mutating androids
reign is far from fnished.
Some viewers, though, likely
will side with Attinger afer
watching Transformers: Age of
Extinction. True, theres a lot of
state-of-the-art 3D chicanery, and
the flm is an improvement on
the inhuman chaos of the previous
two installments, 2009s Revenge
of the Fallen and 2011s Dark
of the Moon. But the bloat of this
entry suggests director Michael
Bay and his team are struggling to
rejuvenate the premise.
Fanboys (and Middle America)
should connect with the broad
sentiments that shape Age of
Extinction: Times (in the U.S., at
least) are tough, the government
is bad, and men (and only men)
should fght for their health, home
and automobile. All of this is
embodied in Bays new protagonist,
Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg),
a broke Texan who gets in trouble
afer buying a patched-up truck
he intends to dismantle and sell to
pay rent and college tuition for
his daughter, Tessa (Nicola Peltz).
But the vehicle is none other
than Optimus Prime (again voiced
by Peter Cullen), leader of the
Autobots. Several years afer the
Decepticons were defeated by a
human-robot alliance, Optimus
and his world-saving colleagues are
being hunted by Black Ops squad-
rons led by Attinger and Captain
Savoy (Titus Welliver). Their
patriotic veneer conceals a darker
motive: They are hocking parts
of captured robots to Joshua Joyce
(Stanley Tucci), a Steve Jobs-like
egomaniac hoping to build better
Transformers.
The clatter of metallic mano a
mano remains Bays calling card,
and the robot dialogue (from
the good guys, no less) includes
such lines as Die, bitch! and
This ones for you, asshole!
as they cannonade targets into,
well, extinction.

Chris Evans stars in a sci- thriller that
manages to be intellectual and
terrically entertaining By Clarence Tsui
Snowpiercer
A
LL THE WORLDS A TRAIN, AND
all the men and women merely pas-
sengers a twist on one of William
Shakespeares most of-recited lines
could serve as a summary of director Bong
Joon-hos latest flm. An adaptation of the cult
French comic book series Le Transperceneige,
Snowpiercer is an epic yet nuanced, contempla-
tive yet entertaining vehicle that uses its title
locomotive as an allegory for human existence
as we see it here and now.
Boasting a stellar cast that will help open
doors in international markets with Chris
Evans, Octavia Spencer and Alison Pill to whip
up interest among U.S. flmgoers and Tilda
Swinton and John Hurt to cement the flms art
house credentials Snowpiercer sees Bong
maintaining an artistic grip on the proceedings.
Veering from mainstream narrative tropes
romance doesnt even get a look-in dur-
ing the male protagonists quest the South
Korean director, most well-known worldwide
for his 2006 monster hit The Host, presents a
unique vision of a despairing present chan-
neled through a dystopian future. Snowpiercer
is an ambitious piece with a universally com-
prehensible theme and accessible aesthetics.
The viewer is thrust into the thick of
things from the start, with tension aboard the
Snowpiercer a perpetually moving con-
voy carrying Earths only remaining human
inhabitants on the verge of boiling over.
The preordained order designed by the
locomotives owner,Wilford (Ed Harris),
and carried out by his spineless lieutenant,
Mason (Swinton), has the elite living in
comfort in the front carriages while the impov-
erished masses huddle in the rear.
Seventeen years have passed since the world
froze over a result of an experiment to
combat global warming gone wrong and the
oppressed are plotting to break from confne-
ment. The raid on the front cars is led by Curtis
(Evans) and the younger Edgar (Jamie Bell),
with bespectacled, one-armed elder Gilliam
(Hurt) serving as the sage and conscience of
the operation.
In a conceit that recalls Dantes journey
through the aferlife in his Divine Comedy, Bong
sets up the Snowpiercer locomotive as taking
a horizontal journey from Inferno to Paradise.
The directors vivid depictions aided
by Ondrej Nekvasils production design, Hong
Kyung-pyos cinematography and Steve M.
Choes editing are exceptional, adding to a
flm that is as much about philosophical refec-
tions on an age of social and moral collapse as
blockbuster-friendly, CGI-enhanced sequences.
Opens Friday, June 27 (Radius-Weinstein Co.)
Cast Chris Evans, Song Kang-ho, Tilda Swinton,
Ko Ah-sung, Jamie Bell, John Hurt, Ed Harris
Director Bong Joon-ho
Rated R, 126 minutes

I SHOULDN T BE SO
SHALLOW, BU T HIS APR
WAS A REAL TURN OFF ...
86 | THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER | 07.18.14
Frankel: Theyll say, Who are you? Youre just a plastic surgeon. Who are
you to say I need a therapist?
This response is unfortunate, maintains Manhattan-based psychologist
Vivian Diller, author of Face It: What Women Really Feel as Their Looks
Change and What to Do About It. I would advocate for an automatic screen-
ing by someone skilled in the psychological makeup of the client coming
in for the surgery because its such a tricky line, particularly since we know
that plastic surgery can become repetitive, she says. Were still just begin-
ning to become aware of the consequences of it: Sometimes people actually
miss the face that they dreamed of changing that was also your familys
nose; your childs, your mothers and they cant admit it because once its
done, its done.
G
IVEN THE MYRIAD, MESSY CHALLENGES AT PLAY, IT WOULD
make sense if Beverly Hills surgeons constantly were fghting
of lawsuits. But in fact, suits are rare. California state law caps
compensation for noneconomic damages (pain and sufering, emotional
distress) at a mere $250,000; given that it easily can cost $100,000 to
bring a case to trial, the risk/reward math just isnt there. Theyre extraor-
dinarily expensive to litigate, and cosmetic surgery cases are generally
disfavored by juries, explains attorney William H. Newkirk. Juries tend
not to be sympathetic to someone who elected to have plastic surgery.
It just becomes very, very difcult to prevail on these cases, adds
Newkirk, and when you do, you cant make enough money to make it
worthwhile to do it.
Except, that is, when concrete errors can be proved to have led to devas-
tating results. Attorney Eran Lagstein says hes juggling a pair of such cases
right now. One is a woman whose facial-flling injections around her eyes
caused nerve damage. The other involves a perforated colon: I just got a
call from a man whose wife got a tummy tuck a few days ago, and now
shes fghting for her life. Based on what Im hearing, she became septic
bacteria found its way into her blood. Maybe she wasnt properly sterilized.
Now shes looking at, possibly, multisystem organ failure.
D
AURIOLS DEATH LIKELY WILL REMAIN A QUINTESSENTIAL
L.A. noir sensation: the naked and disoriented blonde, fresh from
a face-lif, jumping of a Beverly Hills high-rise in broad daylight
to bystanders horror and disbelief. Afer all, the superfcial specifcs are
shorn of any meaningful context; nobody will ever know what was going
through her mind that day. Yet, just like every cosmetic surgery patient,
she no doubt had her reasons complicated, subtle and even profound rea-
sons to undergo such a procedure in the frst place, whatever they might
have been. Only she knew the true shape and merit of the risk she took.
On Feb. 13, afer 1,000 friends and family members packed St. Johns
Cathedral in Hong Kong to pay their respects to DAuriol (all of them
dressed in bright colors to comprise a symbolic colorful bouquet of fow-
ers in lieu of real ones because she loathed waste), her wake was held at
the throwback-elegant China Club on the top three foors of the old Bank
of China building in the citys fnancial district. There, the mourners
were handed copies of a speech DAuriol had given to a local YWCA chap-
ter in 2012, in which she talked about the pain and resolution of accepting
her son Teos death eight years earlier in Bali.
I know now that if I had nothing and nobody, I would still fnd life
beautiful because my happiness does not come to me through stuf and
working on myself, she said at the time. It is the happiness that I
have when I share a connection with a human heart. The speech went
on, This life passes so quickly, and we spend so much of it creating
pictures of what we think life should look like. The only thing that really
stays afer we are gone is the kindness.
Karen Chu in Hong Kong contributed to this report.

61, began her career in 1979, playing synthesiz-
ers on Carmine Coppolas Apocalypse Now score.
In 1992, she became the frst female composer
to earn a solo score credit on a major Hollywood
motion picture for her work on John Carpenters
Memoirs of an Invisible Man. She went on to
create the scores for such flms as Willard and
the Final Destinations trilogy and TV series
Falcon Crest, China Beach and The Flash, one
of many collaborations with Danny Elfman (she
had served as his conductor on Scrooged and
Batman). She won Daytime Emmy Awards as
music director for Batman: The Animated Series
and in music composition in 2001 for Batman
Beyond. At the time of her death, Walker had
scored more major studio motion pictures than
any other American woman. Says ASCAP vp
flm and TV Shawn LeMone: Shirley was a men-
tor, teacher and an inspiration to many. Like
Shirley, Wendy & Lisa serve as role models to
aspiring females pursuing a career as compos-
ers for flm and television. The honorees also
are big fans of Walker and her work. Shirley
Walkers extraordinary talent, name and legacy
of camaraderie have been precious to so many
P
ERFORMING RIGHTS ORGANIZATION
ASCAP (American Society of Composers,
Authors and Publishers) will hold its 29th
annual Film and Television Awards on
June 25 at The Beverly Hilton. The event will
honor the composers of 2013s top box-ofce
flms, the most-performed television scores
and the most popular video soundtracks. Five
things to know:
1. Celebrating ASCAPs 100th birthday
The 500,000-strong organization is the only
performing rights group in the U.S. owned and
run by its members: songwriters, composers
and music publishers. To mark the milestone, a
special clip will highlight the greatest ASCAP
movie scores of the past 100 years, from Alfred
Newmans classic 20th Century Fox theme all
the way up to Gravity.
2. Wendy & Lisa prove theres life after Prince
Since their 80s heyday backing the Purple One,
Wendy Melvoin and Lisa Coleman have gone on
to earn awards and accolades for their flm and
TV work. Among the duos credits: The 1995
box-ofce hit Dangerous Minds, Showtimes
Nurse Jackie, for which they won an Emmy in
2010, and NBCs Heroes. Wendy & Lisa will
be presented with ASCAPs frst Shirley Walker
Award, which honors those whose achieve-
ments have contributed to the diversity of flm
and television music.
3. How Shirley Walker paved the way for women
composers in Hollywood
Regarded as the frst prominent woman of flm
and TV music, Walker, who died in 2006 at age
From Shirley Walker to Wendy & Lisa, the performing rights organization celebrates its 100th anniversary by honoring
women in movie music, the centurys greatest scores and, of course, the perennial Hans Zimmer By Roy Trakin
COMPOSERS TAKE A CUE, GET THEIR DUE
of us for so long, says Coleman, with Melvoin
adding, We hope to do her proud by inspiring
other composers, musicians and artists to keep
on walking even if you walk alone at frst.
4. Alf Clausen pens the tunes for a classic toon
An ASCAP board member and a nominee in
this years inaugural Composers Choice
Awards for TV Composer of 2013, this veteran
American flm and TV musician is best known
for being the sole composer of The Simpsons
since 1990. The Minnesota native counts Henry
Mancini as one of his heroes, inspiring a move
to Los Angeles in 1967 in search of TV work.
Clausens 27 Emmy nominations include
mentions for his music on Moonlighting. Afer
working on ALF, Clausen was hired by
Matt Groening for a new Fox animated series.
He joined The Simpsons in season two and
never looked back, earning two Emmys along
the way.
5. Its the rst year for the ASCAP Composers
Choice Award
This inaugural prize is the frst to be voted
on by all of ASCAPs writer members in flm
and TV. Hans Zimmer leads in noms, with
two in the flm category (12 Years a Slave, Rush).
He goes up against Golden Globe winner
Alex Ebert (All Is Lost) of Edward Sharpe and the
Magnetic Zeros, M83s Anthony Gonzalez and
Joseph Trapanese (Oblivion) and Steven Price
(Gravity). The TV nominees, in addition to
Clausen, are Sean Callery (Homeland), James
Levine (American Horror Story, Glee), Bear
McCreary (The Walking Dead) and Dave Porter
(Breaking Bad).

HEN THE HEARST CORP.
shut down the scrappy
but fading Los Angeles
Herald Examiner, once the
nations largest afernoon news-
paper, in 1989, the fnal edition
carried the headline, So Long,
L.A.! But while the newspaper
itself went away, the 1915 build-
ing that housed it designed by
architect Julia Morgan, it is con-
sidered a classic example of the
Mission Revival style remained
behind. And so far, its managed
to escape the wrecking ball by
opening its doors to flms like 1995s
The Usual Suspects and 2006s
Dreamgirls and, more recently, TV
shows such as Castle, Parenthood
and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Back when the Herald Examiner
stopped publishing, Brian Brosnan,
a former location manager who
founded Hollywood Locations, a
real estate brokerage that special-
izes in providing location services,
convinced the Hearst Corp. that
while deciding what to do with
the building, it should make the
location available for flming.
Since then, Hollywood Locations
has represented the building at
11th and Broadway in downtown
Los Angeles, attracting more
than 1,250 shoots to the property.
Were on track now to have
one of our best years ever, says
Peter Brosnan, Brians brother, who
serves as Hollywood Locations
senior vp and CFO, of the build-
ings new lease on life. From
big-budget TV shows to smaller
indie features and web series,
weve had 70 separate productions
come through the property so far
this year.
During the past two decades,
The Herald Examiner, which closed
nearly 25 years ago, has found new life as a set for
shows like Brooklyn Nine-Nine By Gregg Kilday
THEY STOPPED
THE PRESSES, BUT
IT DIDNT DIE
overall flming in greater Los
Angeles, faced with runaway pro-
duction, has been in decline. In
a comprehensive report released
earlier this year, FilmL.A., the
areas regional flm ofce that
issues flming permits for both the
city of Los Angeles and surround-
ing areas in L.A. County, said that
despite a double-digit increase
in 2013, local feature production
[is] 50 percent below its 1996 peak,
and TV drama production [is]
39 percent below its 2008 peak.
But the Herald Examiner has
beaten the odds, becoming one
of the most consistently popular
sites for production work in
2013, it ranked number three
among various locations in the city.
In part, thats because the building
now ofers a variety of potential
sets. While its ornate two-story
lobby is suited for flming period
pieces, 15 standing sets which
can be adapted into more than
30 diferent looks also have been
created on the other foors of the
building. For example, its main
police station set can do double-
duty as a DMV ofce, while a
second police set can be converted
into a hospital. A bar set originally
designed for Robert Altmans
Short Cuts (1993) was rebuilt and
used in the frst two seasons of
Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
And the building also ofers a
variety of apartment interiors.
Weve built up quite a cache of
looks here, says Bryan Erwin, who
is the locations on-site manager.
I really think television should be
credited with helping out indepen-
dent flmmaking and new media,
because a lot of the TV union guys
have worked with me to upgrade
the sets, and thats to the beneft
of the smaller productions who
then come here and get really
great looks. He declines to spell
out what various productions are
charged, since rates are partly
determined by a productions size,
but he says, My mantra is to be
as budget-friendly as possible, to
work with the shows and their bud-
gets to make everything pay of.
While L.A. still is fghting
to attract bigger-budget movies,
the number of digital and web
productions flming on location
has grown, and the old newspaper
building has taken advantage
of that. The Herald Examiner is
a mirror of what is being made
in town, says Erwin.

F JIMMY KIMMEL IS LATE-NIGHT
televisions prankster and Jon Stewart is its
wiseass, Andy Cohen is the resident shit-
stirrer. Its his own descriptor, and its ftting
given his background as a top Bravo program-
ming executive and host of the networks
ofen-controversial Real Housewives reunion
specials. In the half-decade since Cohen,
46, transitioned in front of the camera, he has
used his now nightly platform at Watch What
Happens Live to persuade his guests, be they
Bravo talent or top-shelf movie stars, to throw
back a cocktail and dish. Discussions in his
Tic Tac-sized studio, dubbed the Clubhouse,
can range from Mariah Carey refecting on the
2001 box-ofce bomb that was Glitter to Oprah
Winfrey addressing the juicy, unauthorized
biography Kitty Kelley wrote about her in 2010.
As the only truly live, interactive series in
late night, WWHL has been able to establish a
niche with pop culture-loving females. Thus
far this year, the New York-set series is averag-
ing 977,000 weekly viewers, up 5 percent
from the same period a year earlier. And Cohen,
who spent 10 years as a CBS News producer
before jumping to cable, is committed to luring
more eyeballs, through bigger guest bookings
(Madonna remains atop the wish list), social
media outreach (via his 1.4 million Twitter fol-
lowers) and a follow-up to his New York Times
best-seller (The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look
at a Shallow Year, out in November).
As Cohen celebrates his ffh anniversary,
THR caught up with the Watch What Happens
Live host and executive producer to discuss his
best (and worst) shows, the crowded late-night

5 years in, still asks himself after

to Oprah Winfrey to his boozy playpen

landscape and that somewhat embarrassing
note his boss, Bravo and Oxygen Media presi-
dent Frances Berwick, gave him earlier this year.
Youre ve years in: What do you know now that
you wish you knew then?
When we started, we didnt have a fan in the
Clubhouse, [which is small and gets very hot,]
so I was sweating my ass of. That was a big
revelation year two. (Laughs.) The other thing,
and I knew it then but I didnt trust myself
enough to do it, is to just be myself. I was scared
to do that in the beginning.
There are many hosts vying for late-night eyeballs
today. Where do you t in in the landscape?
Im a cross between an enthusiast and a shit-
stirrer. I have a deep love of pop culture and an
excitement about it that I hope comes through.
And yet, because of my background not only
at CBS News but stirring things up on reunion
shows and being a lifelong Howard Stern listener,
those are things that I carry with me, too. I ofen
think: Wouldnt it be fun if this was just a
little bit dangerous, and we could play a game
where you had to answer questions? When
people come on our show, they feel looser, and
we wind up going places that maybe they
wouldnt go elsewhere.
Youve had Oprah, Cher and Lady Gaga on the show.
Whos still on your guest wish list?
I love music people. Id love Beyonce or Justin
Timberlake. Id still love Madonna, and I think
thatll happen. The best guests for me are
people who Im actually a big fan of and very
invested in. And were working on the frst lady,
too. She and I spoke about it, and she said, I
think thats a thing we could do later in Baracks
second term. I loved that answer because
what that said to me is, when she comes, shes
going to go for it.
Whats the rst question youd want to ask
Michelle Obama?
Id just like to see her drinking something other
than water, frankly.
Following the success of shows like yours, you saw
a deluge of cable networks from FX to MTV try to
jump into the late-night space, and many of them
have since retreated. Why didnt they work? What
were they missing?
Its usually about the guy or the woman whos
there. You either click or you dont.
You spent several years on the executive side, where
it was your job to identify talent. What do you look
for in a late-night host?

Someone thats funny, open, comfortable and
has the energy. I worked in morning television
for eight years, and its a really specifc thing
where people are fnicky about who they want
to let in in the morning. I think the same thing
goes for when youre laying in bed: Who do you
want to fall asleep to? I rarely watch our show
back, but when I do, I see myself and Im like,
Man, Im screaming. Calm down, dude. I
worry sometimes when I see myself: Oh God,
would I want to be going to sleep with this?
Chelsea Handler is wrapping her E! show at the
end of the summer and moving to Netix. Any advice
for her?
Oh my God, I wouldnt venture to give Chelsea
Handler advice about anything. I dont think
she needs or wants my advice!
CBS has yet to name a replacement for Craig
Ferguson on The Late Late Show. Who should get
that gig?
Id love to see a format change. It would be
interesting if someone, whoever it is, did
a diferent show. Or what if [Stephen] Colbert
did his show at 11:30 from the desk for the frst
15 minutes? Theres an opportunity there
to shake up the way its done. Whos the per-
son to do that? I had Wanda Sykes on my
show recently, and I thought, God, Wanda
would be great. I love Joel McHale. And I
think Kathy Griffin could do something inter-
esting there. Its 12:30 a.m. Id like to see
something really edgy.
Would you be interested in that franchise if it
were presented to you?
I couldnt be doing a show thats more a version
of myself if I tried, and so Im just grateful
for the opportunity that Bravo has given me.
Id never trivialize what theyre letting me do
every night at 11 and live! There was a mis-
conception early on when this launched that
I had [greenlighted] my own show or that I was
somehow running rogue. This is a business, its
a ratings game. I knew in that frst episode order
of 13 episodes at midnight, which is what it was,
that if the ratings werent good it would be gone.
And that hasnt changed: If the ratings arent
good now, theyll put someone else in there.
What kind of notes do you get from Bravo executives?
Ive gotten very few notes, but there was a very
funny one that I got earlier this year from
[Bravo president] Frances Berwick, when I had
come back from vacation. Her note was, Its
time to shave the beard.
Looking ahead, what would you like to do with the
show that you havent already?
Weve gone to South by Southwest twice, and
that festival feels very us because were the only
interactive live show in late night. I want to
continue to go there, and I love the idea of other
road trips and getting outside of the studio.
And I really hope to grow the show by getting
more big-name guests, too, which were doing.
If you could take an episode back erase it from
existence which would it be?
Its live TV, so there have been some that are
just total duds, and you walk out of there
like, Oh God, that was horrible. I remember
ANDY COHEN

S
5 FAVORITE INTERVIEWS
Were working on
[booking] the frst lady, too.
She said, I think thats
a thing we could do later in
Baracks second term.
COHEN, on getting Michelle Obama on the show
we had [Today co-host] Willie Geist booked on
the same night when we had this woman who
was jokingly referred to on the Orange County
Housewives as Jesus Barbie, Alexis Bellino,
and it was the night that Obama announced
at like 10:50 p.m. that Osama bin Laden had been
taken out. I sent Willie Geist home because
I knew as a serious newsman he couldnt come
on my show. It wasnt appropriate. I decided
at the beginning of the episode that I have
a responsibility to tell people whats going on
even if it was weird coming from me. Wed
had 2 million people who were just watching
the Housewives, and they hadnt changed
the channel yet and they didnt know. I get the
minute-by-minute [ratings] of our show, and
I knew what was going to happen: We started
the show with 1 million viewers, and then as
soon as I made the announcement it was like,
boom, they all changed the channel.
Weve seen a lot of turnover in late night.
Which of the competitive shows are you watching
and perhaps enjoying?
Im watching [The Tonight Show with Jimmy]
Fallon. Hes a good buddy of mine. I feel
like hes brought a new energy to late night,
and I love what theyre doing over there.
Theyre just consistently creative. I dont know
how any of them sleep all I know is that
theyre making the rest of us look lazy.
Cohen says the Ferrell (left)/
Carell interview, pegged to
Anchorman 2, was really big for
him because the A-list booking
didnt come through a personal
relationship. In fact, he had
never met either of them. Its
always just shocking to me when
someone Ive never met who is
a huge star chooses to do the
show, he says, maintaining that
sense of wonderment ve years in.
WILL FERRELL
AND
STEVE CARELL
(December 2013)
Theyve been the bread and
butter of the show, he says of
the Real Housewives stars. Cohen,
who executive produces the
franchise, likens his relationship
with the Housewives to Howard
Sterns with his Wack Pack.
Howard can interview a member
of the Wack Pack for an hour, and
then he can go on and interview
Julia Roberts, he says. The
Housewives are my Wack Pack.
THE REAL
HOUSEWIVES
STARS
(Regularly)
There are few things that tickle
Cohen more than a zany mix
of guests, and the pairing of Dan
Rather (left) and John Mayer was
among the zaniest. (Vying for that
spot also is Clay Aiken and Jenna
Jameson, who appeared on
a WWHL episode in March 2012.)
Says Cohen: When you have that
kind of weird combination on,
people are like, Oh my God, youre
kidding me. I have to see that.
DAN RATHER
AND
JOHN MAYER
(May 2012)
Cohen suggests having
Streep in the Clubhouse was
a big turning point for the show,
particularly in terms of other
celebrity bookings. People took
us more seriously after that, he
acknowledges, noting that Streep
told him specically that she did
his show because she was looking
to reach women. She was as
Meryl as she could be, he adds.
It was perfection.
MERYL STREEP
(August 2012)
Im a huge Oprah fan, and I
felt like she did an Oprah trust
fall with me, he says, noting that
there were a lot of potentially
uncomfortable topics he was
eager to address, including the
last time she smoked pot (answer:
right before her talk show went
into syndication). She got on
a long tangent about how big her
boobs are, which was interesting.

the Hotel Thermal, and the intimate vibe means
no schlepping across town to watch a demo reel. Says
Szczukova: Everyone here is concentrated together
in a few places, unlike Berlin or Cannes. You can still
enjoy yourself and do business.
The fest has a sense of humor
The Crystal Globe goes to two or three honorary recip-
ients a year, many of whom then take time to make a
short, usually funny flm to delight audiences at the
next festival. Each shows the fate of a statuette in the
hands of its winner: Harvey Keitel was seen limping
into a New York bar, leg in plaster, muttering about
an asshole dropping the blunt object on his foot;
Milos Forman used it to crush his blood-pressure tab-
lets; Jude Law attached it to his vintage Rolls-Royce;
and Andy Garcia broke open his front door afer arriv-
ing home without keys.
Its easier to nd new talent
Karlovy Vary artistic director Karel Och says
he focuses on showcasing new directors, and
this year will be no exception. The main
competition program features seven world
and fve international premieres, including
the 1970s-era jazz drama Low Down, the
feature debut from U.S. director Jeff Preiss,
starring Elle Fanning. Any Hollywood execu-
tive looking to discover new flmmakers
wont be disappointed, says Och. Every
year we have dozens of talented young direc-
tors, mostly from Central and Eastern
Europe but also from around the world.

A
BOHEMIAN SPA TOWN FAMED FOR ITS
centuries-old hot springs, Karlovy Vary long
has provided a retreat for Europes rich and
famous. The Karlovy Vary International Film
Festival (July 4 to 12) has thrived by capitalizing on
that low-stress atmosphere, ofering veterans of the
fest circuit a powerful antidote to the hectic pace
of more prominent events. In short, Karlovy Vary is
the perfect festival to attend afer the madness of
Cannes in May. Here are four reasons.
The stars dont hide in expensive hotels
Unlike Cannes, where A-listers usually decamp to
the plush Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc afer obligatory
appearances at premieres and aferparties, stars
in Karlovy Vary are laid-back and accessible. When
John Travolta gave a news conference in 2013 afer
receiving a Crystal Globe, the fests top award and
lifetime achievement honor, he happily signed
autographs and posed for selfes with starstruck
local journalists. This years guests include direc-
tor William Friedkin (The Exorcist), in town to
receive a Crystal Globe; veteran Polish direc-
tor Andrzej Wajda, who will screen his biopic
Walesa: Man of Hope with its subject, former
Polish president Lech Walesa, in attendance;
and Michael Pitt (Boardwalk Empire), who will
walk the red carpet in support of opening-
night flm I Origins.
Deals are done with less stress

industry ofce, says that though there is no
formal market at Karlovy Vary, plenty of
dealmaking takes place. Industry fgures

In the 1960s,
Marlon Brando
Fell for Tahiti
O
N JULY 1, 10 YEARS TO THE
day afer Marlon Brandos
death at age 80 from pulmo-
nary fbrosis, a 35-villa resort
named The Brando (prices start at
$4,000 a night) will open on the French
Polynesian atoll of Tetiaroa, bought
by the actor in 1967. Brando discovered
the 1,445-acre Tahitian island, which
still is owned by his estate, while making
1962s Mutiny on the Bounty. The flms
tale of an 18th century British mutiny
was defnitely not, as The Hollywood
Reporter review then predicted, a long-
run, record-breaking hit. The MGM
epic cost $19 million ($149 million today)
and brought in about half that domesti-
cally. Many reports placed the blame
for the productions budget doubling on
Brando himself: He so dominated
the flming that the original director
quit; his weight ballooned from 170
to 210 pounds; and his complicated love
life became even more tangled when
Polynesian co-star Tarita Teriipaia
became his third wife while he was still
disentangling himself from the frst
two. But if making Bounty was some-
thing Brando would regret, buying
the atoll was not. For Marlon, Tetiaroa
was his paradise, says Mike Medavoy,
who was the actors friend and co-execu-
tor of his estate. It was a place for him
to get away from everything. This was
especially important to a person who
had a whole thing about the diference
between being a celebrity and being
a human being. BILL HIGGINS
k f Sept with 13 special issues: Feb (1), June (3), Aug. (3),
a human being.
Marlon had leis in the bag,
says Brandos longtime secretary,
Alice Marchak (center), now
94. She and Brando brought
a Tahitian child seeking medical
treatment and the childs
grandmother back to Los Angeles
with them from the Bounty
shoot in French Polynesia in 1961.
My mind is always soothed
when I imagine myself sitting on
my South Sea island at night.
