George Clooney Just Gave a Rare Interview About His Kids

George Clooney has been married to human rights lawyer and activist, Amal Alamuddin Clooney, since 2014, and the two are parents to three-year-old twins, Ella and Alexander. However, that’s about all we know about their personal life—the couple rarely opens up about it.  

But Clooney recently spoke about his family in an interview while promoting The Midnight Sky, the new Netflix movie he directs and co-stars in with Felicity Jones and Kyle Chandler. (It starts streaming on December 10.) 

“There is no question that having Amal in my life changed everything for me,” he told CBS This Morning. “It was the first time that everything that she did and everything about her was infinitely more important than anything about me.”

“And then we had these two knuckleheads,” Clooney continued. “It is very fulfilling and something I wasn’t at all… didn’t see coming.” 

He added, “We never talked about marriage when we we were dating, and I asked her out of the blue. It took her a long time to say yes…I was on my knee for, like, 20 minutes. I finally said, ‘Look I’m going to throw my hip out.’ We told that story to her parents and they were like, ‘There’s something wrong with his hip? And we never talked about having kids and one day we said, ‘What do you think?’ And then we go to the doctor and you do the ultrasound and they’re like, ‘You got a baby boy!’ and I was like, ‘Baby boy, fantastic!’ And they go, ‘And you got another one there.’ I was up for one. Again, I’m old. All of a sudden, it’s two. It’s hard to get me to not talk, and I just stood there for, like, 10 minutes just staring at this piece of paper going, ‘What? Two?'”

13 Great Tom Hanks Movies Streaming Or Available To Rent

The Toy Story Movies

The first Toy Story film follows a group of toys that come alive when humans aren’t around. Sheriff Woody (Tom Hanks ) is his owner Andy’s favorite toy, but when new spaceman Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) arrives, Woody starts to feel jealous and neglected. Toy Story currently has three sequels.

Why Tom Hanks Fans Will Like It: Like many Pixar films, Toy Story is kid-friendly but has a message, humor, and formula that adults can enjoy. Toy Story also has four films in the franchise (not including the TV movies and shorts), so it’s a great film series to binge. Woody is also one of Hanks’s few animated characters and one of his most memorable characters.

Stream it on Toy Story on Disney+ here (1, 2, 3, 4).

Ciara’s Birthday Celebration for Russell Wilson Looks Amazing

Russell Wilson and Ciara are one of Hollywood’s most stunning couples. They started dating in spring 2015 and were married by July 2016. “I told somebody that’s the girl I want to be with before I even met her,” the NFL quarterback said about his pop star spouse a few years back. Now the two are happier than ever; they share one child together, three-year-old Sienna, and welcomed a baby boy a few months ago. Ciara also has another child, six-year-old Future, from a previous relationship. And their family moments are seriously so adorable. Both of them are always posting the most enviable fam gatherings, one-on-one dates, and other feel-good content that we need to see—especially during this time. I’m 27 years old, but do you think they would adopt me? Just putting it out there!

If you don’t follow these two on Instagram, then you’re missing out. Here is just a snapshot of the A-plus family and relationship content they supply:

Wilson’s tribute to Ciara for her 35th birthday.

“You have changed generations with your music, your dance, business, & your influence as a woman around the world,” he wrote on October 25. “However, despite all of that… the best thing about you is how you always make our family laugh and smile from ear to ear. We love how you wrap your arms around us. We love you forever.”

Why let a pandemic get in the way of having a glamorous night out?

The time Ciara posted these throwback photos, proving she and Wilson were meant for each other.

He was a football player; she was a cheerleader. I think you know how this story ends.

The playful shade Wilson threw at Ciara for loudly filing her nails during quarantine.

Relatable.

Their sexy reveal party, which is the happiest thing I’ve ever seen.

I’m not the biggest fan of these types of gatherings, but even I found this cute.

This video of them talking about the first time they ever met.

Meanwhile, I’m professing my love to a can of Pringles.

When they had a family slumber party.

Coziest setup ever.

This Christmas family music video, set to Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You.”

Grammys all around.

And this family breakfast dance party.

Eatings eggs has never looked more fun.

Their Bey and Jay Halloween costumes.

Ahhh, this was history.

Annnnd when they kissed underwater.

I mean, come on.

And it worked—he balled out.

She also posted a sweet message to her husband: “Season 9. So proud of you babe @DangeRussWilson! Hardest working man I know. Seeing your daily dedication and commitment to the game continually motivates and inspires me! Best 2 Ever do it! #3 The Best is Ahead!
Let’s Go @Seahawks! Let’s Go! #GameDay.”

I love you so much! #HappyBirthday My Love @DangeRussWilson! #DinnerandMovie at home. One of our faves.#CougarforLife 😝,” she wrote on Instagram. And this looks like the nicest home movie night we’ve ever seen!

The Moderna Coronavirus Vaccine Is Being Submitted for Emergency FDA Approval Today

The U.S. reached a dark milestone in early November: 10 million reported coronavirus cases. But there is also big news for a potential coronavirus vaccine. On November 9, Pfizer and German drugmaker BioNTech announced that data from their ongoing coronavirus vaccine trial shows the vaccine is more than 90% effective in preventing COVID-19, per the New York Times. A late-stage trial conducted a few weeks later boasted even better numbers. The NYT reported on November 18 that the Pfizer vaccine is actually 95% effective and safe, and causes no serious side effects. 

The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is just one of 11 potential coronavirus vaccines currently in late-stage trials. “If Pfizer already has promising results, other trials may have some good news soon as well,” says Purvi Parikh, M.D., an allergist and immunologist with the Allergy and Asthma Network and co-investigator on the vaccine trials. 

On November 16, a second vaccine, from Moderna, which uses similar technology, was reported to be 94.5% effective in preventing COVID-19. “These are obviously very exciting results,” Dr. Anthony Fauci told CNN. “It’s just as good as it gets—94.5% is truly outstanding.” One difference between the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines is that the Moderna version does not have to be stored at as cold a temperature, which could make distribution easier. (In a delightful twist, news broke on November 17 that the $1 million Dolly Parton donated to coronavirus research at Vanderbilt University actually helped fund Moderna’s vaccine.) 

So what does this mean about when you’ll actually be able to get a safe, reliable coronavirus vaccine? Here’s everything you need to know.

When will a coronavirus vaccine be approved?

Before the vaccine can be approved by the Food and Drug Administration, Pfizer (and any other drugmakers with a promising vaccine trial) will have to finish collecting two months of safety data. Pfizer will be done collecting this information in late November. Assuming everything checks out, the company plans to ask for fast-tracked emergency authorization from the FDA, according to the New York Times.

On November 22, Pfizer submitted its application for emergency approval from the FDA and Moderna announced it would be asking for the same approval on November 30. According to CNN, the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee is scheduled to meet on December 10 to review Pfizer’s application and on December 17 to review Moderna’s application. CNN also reports Moderna will be asking the committee to review “an expanded data set showing the vaccine is 94.1% effective at preventing Covid-19 and 100% effective at preventing severe cases of the disease.”

Will the coronavirus vaccine be safe?

The FDA is responsible for making sure that any fast-tracked vaccine not only works but is safe. “The vaccine must go through a minimum of three phases before approval,” Parikh says, “the last being the most thorough with a minimum of 30,000 individuals tested, especially those in high-risk groups such as the elderly, those with diabetes, heart disease, and obesity, and racial groups with health disparities.” 

There are still some unknowns, like whether or not a vaccine will be safe for kids or pregnant women. Pfizer announced in October that it would start testing its vaccine in kids, but currently there are no trials that include pregnant women—who are more likely to suffer from serious complications of the coronavirus. “We will need that data to determine safety, as every group is different,” says Parikh.

10 Fashion Trends That’ll Only Get Bigger in 2021

The most current fashion trends are those that feel easy to wear but still look like you made just enough effort to do whatever it is you do during these strange, strange days and nights. Whether that’s daily Zoom meetings and a few essential errands; the occasional (safe!) outdoor dinner; weekend park outings; or in-person work, we all could use clothing that makes us feel a distinct sense of ease and comfort. 

While forecasting fashion trends that originate on the runway isn’t a total exercise in futility—it will always hold influence—it seems designers and retailers are more frequently looking to social media, youth culture, nostalgia, the street, and celebrities for inspiration about what’s cool and what’s current. 

As we start to wrap up a year that’s been less-than ideal for every single one of us, take solace in the fact that the current fashion trends you might have bought into in 2020 will only be more prevalent in 2021. Small victories!

Sweet Cropped Cardigans

This vintage-inspired trend was kicked off among higher-end brands like Alessandra Rich and LoveShackFancy and it’s inevitably trickled down to the Zaras and Forever 21s of the world. Don’t be fooled by the way the women above styled theirs—this trend looks just as cute with lounge-y sweatpants as it does with jeans or a midi skirt. Plus, whether buttoned up on its own or with a matching cami underneath, it’ll impress over Zoom even if you pair it with the flannel PJ bottoms you wore to bed.

Tractor-inspired boots

Seemingly every designer and retailer from Balenciaga to Zara are taking cues from the humble tractor boot, which had a massive surge in fall 2020 and will only become more widespread next year. Characterized by an almost comically rounded toe and a thick, rugged sole, it’s among the current fashion trends that look as at home under a long dress or with super-short skirt as it does paired with slouchy sweatpants or leggings.

Candy-colored sweatpants 

Few items can replace your favorite pair of worn-in heather gray sweats, but this year—one that was defined by couch clothing—the demand for sweatpants in a variety of colors, including dreamy pastels and juicy bolds was strong. Blame it on the idea that, once we felt comfortable to go outside again, our commitment to comfort didn’t waver but we still wanted to shop for and wear pieces that felt a little more fun than what typically-colored sweatpants telegraph.

Shackets

Brushed plaid “shackets”—a hybrid of shirt and jacket—are among the current fashion trends that can be worn anywhere, anytime. Heavier than a flannel shirt but not quite as bulky as a full-on coat if you need to run out, they also look great with most things you’re already wearing, from sweatpants to turtlenecks.

Puff Sleeves

That bag shape we all had in the early 2000s

You know the one: short strap; kind of like a half-circle. Perfect for carrying only what you need, which never felt more relevant. Fendi coined the shape as the “baguette” and it’s had a massive resurgence, while Prada recently reissued its iconic 2000 and 2005 nylon version. You don’t have to have a designer budget, though:  almost every affordable retailer has its own version right now, but if you really want to take it back to the early aughts, go for the ones made from shiny hard pleather.

The Undoing Finale Has Divided the Internet

Warning:  Major spoilers ahead. Don’t watch unless you’ve seen the series finale of The Undoing. 

It seemed like the entire internet watched the series finale of HBO’s The Undoing on Sunday, November 29. For those unfamiliar with the show, it centers on a New York City therapist named Grace (Nicole Kidman), whose husband, Jonathan (Hugh Grant), is accused of murdering a woman named Elena Alves (Matilda De Angelis). As the show unfolded, we learned Jonathan had an affair with Elena and was the father of her newborn baby. But he contested up and down that he was not her killer, despite his tangled relationship with her.

So, naturally, the internet jumped into theorizing mode to figure out who Elena’s killer really was. Did Grace actually know about the affair and murder Elena out of rage? Was it their young son, Henry (Noah Jupe), who hid the murder weapon in his violin case? Or was it a wildcard, like Grace’s chic, very-together lawyer friend Sylvia (played by Lily Rabe)?

Well, it was none of those people. The killer turned out to be—drum roll, please!—Jonathan. Yes, that’s right. The murderer was exactly who we expected it to be. No twists, no turns—just impeccable acting, great coats, and lots of heavy breathing from Nicole Kidman.

The lack of “gotcha” in the finale upset some viewers, who labeled it “disappointing.” Some even said it “sucked.”

But there were many who enjoyed it. “I’m shocked that some of y’all didn’t love The Undoing finale,” one person tweeted. “That was one of the most exhilarating hours of television I’ve seen in years! Not every show has to be Lost/Westworld with a mad libs of twists.”

This is a good point. What The Undoing lacked in a jaw-dropping twist it more than made up for in perfectly layered tension. Kidman’s character taking the stand to “advocate” for Jonathan but actually shine a light on his sociopathic behavior was a thrill in itself. 

Whether you loved or hated The Undoing, it was certainly fun to watch something in real time as a collective. I miss event TV!
