You don’t hear too much about Liza Minelli these days, but she’s still working, and she’s still a trouper. Liza, who is almost 70, was set to perform in Wilmington, North Carolina, but her plane had to turn back and land in Charlotte because of extreme turbulence (thanks Joaquin). So Liza took a 200 mile taxi ride to make the show – it was an Uber actually. Liza is like a good golf shot out of the woods – it goes through a lot of crap, but it gets there.
Keira Knightly is starring on Broadway in a show called Therese Raquin – it’s actually her debut, and it got off to a very bumpy start when a man began shouting at her from the audience. He asked Keira to marry him and begged for a response, while she and the rest of the cast ignored him. He also threw flowers at her, and kept it up until he was forcibly removed in handcuffs and taken to a hospital. He was eventually released and charged with a misdeamenor. He tells the New York Post that he’s not planning on seeing Keira again. If they are both at the same party then fine, but he’s not going to try to get on stage with her because that was a nightmare. Showbiz relationships are so tough.
Hard to believe that Instagram is 5 years old, which is pretty old in terms of technology. It now has 400 million users around the globe. Just think – 5 years ago, you had no way of knowing what your friends were having for dinner.
