Season two of Stranger Things hit Netflix this month, but that doesn't necessarily mean we have to click play to see the cast together.

As we gush over the return of the Netflix original series, take a look at some of the cast's best offscreen moments.

How Ezra Miller's Standalone Film as the Flash Will Make LGBTQ+ History

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 17:25:49 -0800

Ezra Miller is set to become the first openly queer actor to lead a superhero film when he stars as the Flash in the 2020 film Flashpoint. The Justice League star first opened up about his sexuality in 2012, telling Out magazine, "I'm queer. I have a lot of really wonderful friends who are of very different sexes and genders. I am very much in love with no one in particular."

In 2016, Ezra spoke about coming to terms with being queer in his younger years and also addressed how ostracizing the experience was for him. "I was beginning to have questions about my sexuality and was starting to kiss boys sometimes," he recalled. "And that didn't help [to fit in] either."

Since then, the 25-year-old New Jersey native has embraced his queer identity, even after being told that it was a mistake for him to come out. "I won't specify [who]," he said in a recent interview. "Folks in the industry, folks outside the industry. People I've never spoken to. They said there's a reason so many gay, queer, gender-fluid people in Hollywood conceal their sexual identity or their gender identity in their public image. I was told I had done a 'silly' thing in thwarting my own potential to be a leading man."

Ezra admitted that hearing he made a mistake coming out brought on "moments of doubt," but revealed he now looks back on the naysayers and considers their warnings "rubbish." "I've undammed my identity in the world," he declared. And that he has. Ezra will suit up and make LGBTQ+ history when he reprises his role as the beloved DC comic book superhero in his standalone film.

Although it certainly won't be the first time an openly LGBTQ+ actor has portrayed a superhero on the big screen, it will mark the very first time an LGBTQ+ actor will lead their own superhero movie, and we say it's about damn time!

Jennifer Hudson and fiancé David Otunga have ended their ten-year relationship, People confirms. "They have been in the process of ending their relationship for a number of months," the singer's rep told the publication. The couple, who first got engaged in September 2008, share an 8-year-old son named David Daniel Otunga Jr. In addition to the couple's split, Jennifer has also "requested and received a protective order against her ex-fiancé" in "the best interest of their son."

Following news of their breakup, David's attorney, Tracy M. Rizzo, released a statement on his behalf. "Mr. Otunga has never abused or harassed Ms. Hudson or their son, and it is unfortunate, especially in today's climate, that she would feel the need to make these false allegations against him," part of the statement read. "Mr. Otunga looks forward to his day in court and in being awarded the residential care of the parties' only child." The last time the pair was spotted out together was December 2016, when they attended the March of Dimes Celebration of Babies with their son.

Here Come William, Kate, and Harry! How the Young Royals Have Stepped Up in 2017

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 15:50:03 -0800

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry have in the past received criticism for not taking on as many royal duties as the queen and the rest of their family, but 2017 has seen the most amount of change in the family business for many years. As everyone waited with bated breath for news of a Harry and Meghan Markle engagement, the announcement in May that Prince Philip was retiring from public life went by with little fuss; however, the impact it has had on the rest of the family is actually pretty major. First, it meant that the queen would be going out on public engagements now without her husband by her side, and therefore other members of the family have stepped up, including Prince Charles for the State Opening of Parliament and Prince William for a state lunch at Buckingham Palace with Burmese leader Aung San Suu Kyi. Secondly, it meant that Philip's many patronages will need to be filtered off to the other members of the family. Kate has already taken over with the RAF Cadets, and although many other patronages are yet to be redistributed, this will be happening over the coming months. Most importantly, it means the younger members of the family - William, Kate, and Harry - have taken on more work, and this will continue to increase over the coming years. A statement from William and Kate's offices at Kensington Palace early in 2017 read, "Their Royal Highnesses are keen to continue to increase their official work on behalf of The Queen and for the charities and causes they support, which will require greater time spent in London." This is what we have seen already in 2017, with William and Kate undertaking trips to Paris, Belgium, Poland, and Germany on behalf of the government, while William also visited France and is soon heading for Finland and Kate traveled to Luxembourg. Meanwhile, Harry went to France and Belgium for important WWI centenaries, Malawi for conservation work, Singapore for a charity polo tournament, Toronto for the Invictus Games, and Australia to promote the 2018 Invictus Games. Harry also visited Copenhagen on behalf of the government. Closer to home, the royal trio has been focusing on their Royal Foundation, and specifically the Heads Together initiative, encouraging people to be more open and understanding about mental health issues. William continues to focus on homelessness, anti-bullying, and conservation, Kate on addiction, family breakdown, and the importance of early intervention, and Harry on conservation, veterans, and HIV/AIDs. Next year, there are already dates in the diary, with William and Kate heading to Norway and Sweden early in the year and Harry going to Sydney for the 2018 Invictus Games. It's likely Harry will also tour next year.[...]

The Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan Scandal Is Still Completely Unsettling, Even 2 Decades Later

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 15:35:03 -0800

Jan. 6, 1994, continues to be known as the day one of the biggest sports scandals in American history took place. Olympians Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan were preparing for their second Games together when Kerrigan was attacked - but was Harding involved? She holds onto her innocence to this day. Multiple documentaries have been made on the incident, and now Margot Robbie will star in Hollywood's big-budget film I, Tonya, set to hit theaters on Dec. 8. The scandal occurred over 20 years ago, yet the movie offers a new reason to revisit the case. In a time when some women choose to tear each other down for the sake of their own careers and relationships, the movie will surely open a fresh perspective. Their Relationship Harding was the first American woman to land a triple axel (the name just sounds difficult in itself) in the 1991 US Figure Skating Championships. She ended up getting a perfect score and won first place. Kerrigan received bronze. The two had competed against one another in the 1992 Olympics in Albertville, France, where Kerrigan took home bronze and Harding followed in fourth. Their relationship extended beyond healthy competition. Sure, they were both gunning for the top spot, but it seemed to stretch beyond that. Both ladies were making big names for themselves, but Kerrigan had more sponsorships: Campbell's, Seiko, Revlon, and Reebok. Her overall persona seemed to win over the public more, even if Harding arguably had a slight skating advantage. The Incident Harding and Kerrigan were practicing for the US Women's Championships in Detroit, MI, on that January day. The championship was set for the following day and would decide who qualified to move onto the 1994 Winter Olympic Games in Lillehammer, Norway. That night, before the qualifying skate, Kerrigan was walking off the ice after practicing when she was struck in the right knee with a baton. The assaulter was a man hired by Harding's ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly. The moments before and after the attack were caught on tape. We see Kerrigan on the ground crying and screaming, "Why?!" In between shrieks and sobs, she described the object she was struck with as "some hard, hard black stick." Kerrigan was hit on her right kneecap, which was her landing leg on the ice. width="728" height="410" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/voUMQrLy_uY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen=""> The doctor who examined Kerrigan after the attack, Dr. Steven Plomaritis, told The New York Times, "He [the attacker] was clearly trying to debilitate her." Luckily, there was no fracture, but she did suffer from a bruise, limp, and severe swelling. Would Kerrigan be able to skate her two-and-a-half-minute routine? After all, the qualifying round was the very next day. Plomaritis told the Times that it wouldn't hurt for her to skate, on a medical level. But could she stand the pain? Harding went on to skate into first place that next day. Before the Games even started, the man who struck Kerrigan, Gillooly, and two other men associated with the attack were sentenced to prison. However, they made it known that Harding knew about the attack beforehand. But even today, she stands by the fact that she did not know about it or have involvement in it. The US Olympic Committee wanted to disqualify Harding from competing. But when she came back with a $25 million lawsuit, they allowed her to go for the title. If you're on Kerrigan's side, maybe it's a good thing Harding was allowed to compete. Kerrigan skated in her bright yellow Vera Wang outfit with grace and took home the silver medal. Harding, on the other hand, almost didn't skate at all since one her laces broke before her turn. She started to cry and the judges allowed her to skate a little later on. Harding took eighth place. The Aftermath Harding's career was as good as over, and she still says that she didn't know[...]

Kim Kardashian Drinks a Disgusting Sardine Smoothie to Avoid Discussing Her Pregnant Sisters

Kim Kardashian followed in her sister Khloé's footsteps when she joined James Corden for a round of his game "Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts" on Wednesday. Sitting down in front of James's smorgasbord of disgusting delights, she gave as good as it gets when it came to asking probing questions. Kim had no problem listing her family members from best dressed to worst (sorry, Khloé) and even dished on Kanye's bad habits at home. But when it came to discussing her sisters' pregnancies, Kim took one for the team, tucking into a sardine smoothie rather than betraying Khloé and Kylie. James also showed solidarity for his own sisters; on being asked to choose a favorite, there was really only one thing he could do. Be warned, you'll need a strong stomach for this one!

How Crazed Cult Leader Jim Jones Orchestrated 1 of the Biggest Mass Murders in History

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 12:20:03 -0800

This season of American Horror Story sheds light on multiple infamous cult leaders, including Charles Manson, artist Andy Warhol, and Jim Jones, the founder of The People's Temple - one of the most intense and abominable cults out there. Founded in 1955 by the ordained pastor, it was initially used to spread messages of social change and racial equality - sounds sweet, right? During the '60s and '70s, People's Temple had nearly 5,000 members and the support of loads of liberal political figures, including Harvey Milk, California Governor Jerry Brown, San Francisco Mayor George Moscone, and even First Lady Rosalynn Carter. In 1974, things took a turn in a way that not many people saw coming (but they probably should have). Related7 Infamous Cults That Are Creepy as F*ck The group moved to a property in Guyana, where they developed a community called Peoples Temple Agricultural Project, also known as "Jonestown." Jim Jones considered it both a "sanctuary" and "socialist paradise," and by late 1978, it boasted over 900 residents. Once members started leaving the cult, though, they started telling stories about being forced to watch Soviet propaganda films and work six days a week to keep up the crumbling buildings and overgrown fields. Jones subjected followers to behavior modification and mind control techniques borrowed from North Korea and made them surrender their children into communal custody and call him "Dad." He lied to them about what was happening in the United States - including tales of African-Americans being herded into concentration camps - and made them do "suicide drills" in an attempt to prepare them for a government attack. Oh, and he also stole their money, to the tune of $65,000 a month in social security checks. RelatedThe True Story of David Koresh and the Branch Davidians Will Disturb and Anger You Sh*t hit the fan on Nov. 18, 1978, when San Francisco Congressman Leo Ryan visited Jonestown in an attempt to investigate claims of abuse. Many members expressed their desire to leave the cult with Ryan, and as the group headed to a local airstrip that afternoon, they were stopped by Temple "security guards" and shot. Congressman Ryan was killed, along with three journalists and one of the cult members. What followed is what is now known as the Jonestown Massacre and what many consider a "mass murder": that evening, Jim Jones ordered his followers to drink grape Kool-Aid laced with cyanide (and now you know where the expression "drinking the Kool-Aid" comes from). Jones instructed the children to drink first, basically ensuring that the parents and elders would have no reason to live. He also made sure that the area was "surrounded with armed guards with guns and crossbows," because he was an evil, evil monster. Jim Jones was found with a single bullet wound to the head, though it was never confirmed whether he shot himself or made a member of his congregation do so. A total of 918 people, including 276 children, died at Jonestown - and the killings marked the greatest single loss of American civilian life until the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.[...]



All the Exciting Things We Can Expect After Harry and Meghan Announce Their Engagement

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 11:40:50 -0800

Any bride or groom knows that the engagement is the easy part: choose a ring, say yes, jump up and down, tell EVERYONE. Done! But then come the endless decisions: finding a location, choosing a dress, keeping the guest list below Coachella-esque numbers . . . If Prince Harry and Meghan Markle do get engaged, they will have many of the usual concerns as they plan their big day, but given their unusual circumstances, there are plenty of other areas they would need to address too. Related2017: The Year We Got a Closer Look at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Romance Firstly, as soon as an announcement is made, Meghan's security detail would be stepped up. Following her first official appearance with Harry at the recent Invictus Games, Meghan was drafted a security detail for the first time, but it is currently paid for by her Suits bosses. It's likely that as soon as she was betrothed to a member of the royal family, they would start picking up the bill. The usual early decisions about wedding venue and date would apply to Harry and Meghan. They would have a number of churches, abbeys, and cathedrals at their disposal, and each would need to be assessed according to the couple's personal preference, the size of their guest list, and their security issues. The date would need to not clash with any big royal events such as Ascot, Trooping the Colour, or any scheduled state visits. Royal engagements are always brief - usually no longer than six months - so personal decisions about dress and theme would need to be made pretty quickly. The honeymoon would also need to be decided on in the early stages so that security could be arranged. An advance team of personal protection officers would need to make an planning trip to flag up and address any areas of concern. Overseas bachelor and bachelorette parties are increasingly popular, so if Harry or Meghan wanted to follow in the footsteps of Pippa Middleton (who celebrated her bachelorette in Courchevel, France), this would also need to be agreed upon early on so that the necessary security trips could be put into place. It's thought that Meghan is already being prepped for life in the royal family and has had access to assorted advisers, but once an engagement is announced, her involvement will really ramp up. Soon after they are married, she would take on a set of patronages, and in order to do this, she would need to do research, take meetings, and make visits in order to choose the charities she would most like to be involved in. RelatedIf Meghan Markle Marries Prince Harry, This Would Be Her Royal Title In order to ease Meghan into royal life and introduce her to the people of the UK, she would likely go on a handful of official engagements alongside Prince Harry before their wedding. Between William and Kate's engagement and wedding, they made sure to undertake visits to Scotland (to their former university St. Andrews), Northern Ireland (for pancake flipping during a charity visit on Shrove Tuesday), Wales (where they launched a lifeboat in Anglesey), and England (where they attended a charity gala). Plans for their first royal tour would probably spring into action also. When William and Kate married, they went on their first tour to Canada just three months later, and it's likely Harry and Meghan would hit the road soon after their big day, too. Meghan has already met Harry's father, Prince Charles, and grandmother Queen Elizabeth as well as Willia[...]
