So sad. According to this, “Arctic sea ice reached its second-lowest extent and the largest ice melt on record for the month of June since 1979.” And there have been reports of polar bears and grizzly bears mating, likely due to climate and environmental changes.

Photographer : Denis Piel
Model : Gia

When I was in high school and before the HBO movie with Angelina Jolie was made, I read the book it was based on “Thing of Beauty: The Tragedy of Supermodel Gia” by Stephen Fried.

Because a lot of people written about in the book were still alive when the movie was made, lots of names were changed and lots of amalgamated characters were in the movie version.

The book is so much better than the movie in terms of telling Gia’s story, especially her life before modeling as a queer high schooler in Philly and has SO many good stories about her modeling days.

Her love life was also a lot more complex than the one character in the movie, although the makeup artist was based on Sandy Linter, who still works in the industry today.

life:

A half-century ago, on a spring night in New York City, 35-year-old Marilyn Monroe — literally sewn into a sparkling, jaw-droppingly tight dress — stood in a spotlight on a dark stage. She took a breath, began to sing — and 15,000 men and women who filled the old Madison Square Garden that night knew, simply knew, that they were seeing and hearing something that they would never, ever forget.
The song, of course, was “Happy Birthday,” and Marilyn’s breathy, intimate rendition — sung, as if the two of them were utterly alone, to President John F. Kennedy — has been celebrated, analyzed and lovingly parodied countless times in the five decades since that indelible performance.
LIFE’s Bill Ray was there — and now, we present a set of unpublished from that unforgettable night.

Here’s our fun Friday find: We just learned about Celebrityclose-up.com, a fascinating tumblr that gives an unadulterated, extra-personal look at Hollywood’s biggest stars. Everyone from Modern Family’s Sofia Vergara, to Mila Kunis, to Ashton…

I think I’ll use the Hugh Laurie one as my PokerStars avatar. Because that shit is scary. It’ll make you fold AND shit your pants!
