The idea of the ‘damsel in distress’ has long figured into myth and literature. An ancient Greek legend presents the princess Andromeda chained to a rock, eventually saved from a sea monster by Perseus. The idea became popularized in medieval romances, and the aforementioned phrase emerged for the first time in English in the late 17th and early 18th centuries: in the 1692 poem, ‘‘Sylvia’s Complaint of Her Sexes Unhappiness,’’ in a mid-18th-century ballad, ‘‘The Spanish Lady,’’ in the 1755 translation of Don Quixote, and the 1919 P.G. Wodehouse’s novel A Damsel in Distress, which went on to become a musical.

The ultimate culmination of damsels in distress? The Disney princesses, with the Prince Charmings, the happy endings, and the forever afters. Today, of course, the damsel in distress can fight her own dragons and pay her own rent— even the Disney princesses have started speaking up—but the idea that a woman needs a man to feel complete still lingers like a dark cloud above these figures’ heads.

Actor and producer Nina Dobrev’s newest role in Love Hard subtly, through comedic relief, explores the unresolved idea of wanting the perfect love. It reaches the timeless conclusion that, although wanting love is valid and necessary, the first place one should look for it is within oneself. Love Hard is a feel-good, romantic, holiday-seasoned comedy, additionally featuring Jimmy O. Yang, Darren Barnet, and Heather McMahan. “It’s a fun ride,” comments Dobrev of the film, “and everyone in the film is really hilarious, but it’s not just all jokes. There’s a lot of heart in the film, a lot of connection, and the themes are really interesting.”

Het sportteam de L.A. Chargers is in augustus een partnerschap aangegaan met Nina’s wijnmerk ‘Fresh Vine Wine’ die ze samen met Jullianne Hough runt. Bekijk het promotiefilmpje voor de samenwerking hier, om hun deal te vieren bezocht Nina in augustus het stadium. De deal houd in dat hun wijnen voor meerdere jaren geschonken/gekocht kunnen worden in de enkele selecteerde baren van de SoFi Stadium, de thuisbasis van het American footballteam in Los Angeles.

Inmiddels is ook een nieuwe promotieshoot voor het merk verschenen.

Fresh Vine Wine — the health-conscious brand from best friends and business partners Nina Dobrev and Julianne Hough — has entered into a multiyear partnership as the wine partner of the Los Angeles Chargers.

Under the deal, Fresh Vine Wine will be served at select bars at the NFL team’s new home, SoFi Stadium. On the menu will be the label’s California cabernet sauvignon, pinot noir, chardonnay and recently released rosé.

To celebrate the arrangement, Dobrev and Hough turned up at the Chargers’ first home game on Aug. 22. The deal marks the fourth sports partnership for Fresh Vine after similar pacts with the National Hockey League, National Basketball Association and Major League Baseball.

Dobrev, a “longtime football fan,” said Fresh Vine will bring a premium luxury wine experience to fans “who love indulging in the greatest things that life has to offer while being conscious consumers with active lifestyle choices.” She added: “As the world reopens, we hope that Fresh Vine Wine and SoFi stadium can bring people together safely through laughter, connection and shared experiences while satisfying their taste buds.”

Hough suggested the brand’s “premium low-carb, low-calorie, gluten-free and vegan-friendly wines” will be a good match for Chargers fans and sports enthusiasts. “The synergy across our brand, Fresh Vine Wine and SoFi Stadium is unmatched, and we cannot wait to share with fans the enjoyable, guilt-free experience that Fresh Vine Wine is.”

Chargers president of business operations A.G. Spanos said his organization is thrilled to partner with Fresh Vine Wine. “We couldn’t be happier that Julianne and Nina were able to join us last Sunday as we kicked off the partnership while also welcoming fans to a Chargers game at SoFi Stadium for the first time. Being able to offer their premium collection of wines to our fans further enhances what is truly an extraordinary gameday experience.”

Earlier this summer, the pair opened up on their journey from friends to business partners, telling The Hollywood Reporter that it’s been a seamless and fruitful collaboration. “At the end of the day, life is about sharing things with people you love, laughing and enjoying every single moment, the highs and the lows,” Dobrev said in May. “It’s been such a high with Julianne.”

Claire heeft een interview en fotoshoot gehad met Ocean Drive, bekijk de fotoshoot in de galerij.

Claire Holt (@claireholt) has lived her 33 years as a woman on a mission. Constantly on the move, the Australian beauty has been driven by her intense ambition, landing iconic roles such as Rebekah Mikaelson on The Vampire Diaries and its spinoff series, The Originals, as well as Emma Gilbert in H20: Just Add Water, that catapulted her to mega-fame and set the fast pace of her blossoming acting career. However, as the world came to a halt in 2020, Holt found herself doing the same. And during this time, she realized it may be time to reevaluate her priorities in life.

“I’ve been guilty of always running to the next thing in my life,” Holt admits. “It was always, ‘What’s next?’ ‘Where am I going now?’ I set these career goals for myself and never took the time to slow down. The lockdown ended up being a time for me to think about my life and my future. And I think now I’m on the right path.”

Following a miscarriage in March 2018, which Holt bravely and candidly revealed to her millions of fans on Instagram, she and husband Andrew Joblon welcomed their baby son, James Holt Joblon to the world a year later in March 2019. In the midst of the lockdowns in April 2020, Holt announced to Instagram that she was expecting once again, this time with a baby girl, Elle Madeline Holt Joblon, who was born in September 2020.

“Being pregnant throughout that time was definitely anxiety-inducing as we didn’t know much about the virus or the potential effects on a growing baby. But it was so nice to be able to spend extra time with my family and just slow down. It allowed me to look into alternative business paths given that the acting world was put on hold,” Holt notes.

Prompting an interest to expand her horizons in the investment world, Holt’s entrepreneurial spirit flourished as she took stake in beauty brand Fig. 1 and launched her first swimsuit collaboration with Andie Swim.

An interview with the Louisiana native, whose winding journey has taken him from Cajun cowboy to television star to bourbon boss

“It helps curb the cravings. But…makes for a lot of lushy vamps.” That’s a line from an early episode of The Vampire Diaries—the TV series that became a worldwide phenomenon over eight seasons—describing vampires’ love of spirits. In the show, the two vampire brothers, Damon and Stefan Salvatore, played by Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley, raise this to an art form with their consumption of bourbon. It’s also a story element that inspired Somerhalder and Wesley to start a distillery and release their bourbon, Brother’s Bond, earlier this year.

The venture fits with Somerhalder’s childhood in Louisiana. On Sundays after church, he says, the adults would enjoy mint juleps, creating indelible scenes in his memory. Even though Somerhalder now lives in California with his wife and daughter, the South—and its greatest drink—seems to have a powerful pull on this model turned actor, who also starred on the hit series Lost.

Did you learn about the “rules of vampires” by watching The Lost Boys?
Oh, my, I loved that movie—and it still holds up. I knew a lot about vampires because I grew up near the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain. In the distance you can see New Orleans glimmering. It has a mystique for vampires, and my mom loved Anne Rice; plus my family is Cajun. As a kid I was always saying, “Yeah, let’s go find a vampire.”

Daniel heeft een nieuwe fotoshoot en interview gehad met Mr. Warbuton Magazine. Met het tijdschrift praat hij over zijn nieuwste film ‘Coming Home in the Dark’, zijn rol in de Netflix-serie ‘Virgin River’ en hoe hij de afgelopen quarantaine periode in de pandemie heeft doorgebracht.

ith 2 hot new projects, Coming Home in the Dark and Occupation Rainfall, actor Daniel Gillies sits down with MRWARBURTON MAGAZINE to talk going back to New Zealand to film and his personal style.

Shot on location at the Chamberlain hotel in West Hollywood, special thank you to their excellent team!

Since 2010, the spunky (that’s Aussie and Kiwi slang for good-looking) face of Daniel Gillies has been a fixture of network television. After a successful stint on the Australian drama Street Legal and a subsequent string of guest roles on a slew of popular American shows, the Canadian-born and New Zealand bred actor landed the role of Elijah Mikaelson on the long-running hit series The Vampire Diaries and its successful spin off The Originals. In addition, he somehow managed to simultaneously star in the Canadian supernatural medical drama series Saving Hope. And since no actor can amass too many successful TV roles, in 2019 Gillies began a recurring role in the sleeper Netflix sensation Virgin River.

That is all about to change by early summer. Gillies’ image will appear a bit bigger, and his audience reach will broaden exponentially with two major film releases. Written and directed by Luke Sparke, Occupation: Rainfall (already a box-office hit in Australia) is an action-packed sci-fi adventure set to land in American cinemas in time for the summer blockbuster season.

More significantly, however, is the breakout Sundance Film Festival critical favorite Coming Home in the Dark. An intense psychological thriller directed by James Ashcroft from the story by Marshall Owen, the film has won critical acclaim following its festival premier. In the lead character of Mandrake, Gillies landed the role of a lifetime as an eerily icy yet riveting sociopath with a vengeance who demands unwavering attention every moment he is on screen.
