TWO INTERESTING WEEKS AWAY FROM HOME (INCLUDING PARIS)

Posted on October 16, 2013, in My Blog, with 20 Comments

First I went to Atlanta for the annual Empower party that raises money for my Georgia-based non-profit, The Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Power & Potential. We honored Dr Sanjay Gupta with the Health Pioneer. It was a lot of fun and a big success. My favorite ex-husband, Ted Turner, was my date.

Turns out Dr Gupta went to University of Michigan and, with his wife Rebecca, lived near Jeff Daniels in a small lake town 15 minutes from Ann Arbor.…

This morning there were 3 TV interviews. This most interesting one called “Tea au Café” (Tea in the Café) with Catherine Ceylac who looks like Diane Sawyer and was a terrific interviewer.

PARIS BLOG PART 3

Posted on November 5, 2012, in My Blog, with 10 Comments

I did three magazine interviews this morning, then did the 3 hour Michael Drucker show called “Vivement Dimanche” which is one of if not the most popular TV shows in France that airs Sunday afternoons throughout Europe since 1997. I did the show 7 years ago to promote my memoir. Vanessa, my grandkids and Tulea were all with me then on the show and I was astonished at how huge the audience was—I got so much feedback.…

PARIS VISIT PART 2 – A VISIT TO A L’OREAL LAB

I was particularly interested in learning about and seeing the reconstructed human skin that is made in another L’Oreal factory further away and on which the company tests its products.

Since 1999, the company has been making reconstructed biological skin that can replicate all different types of skin the world over including the skin of the scalp and even the eye cornea.…

IN PARIS PART 2

In the photo above I am with Pierre Richard from our film, “…Et Si On Vivait Tous Ensemble” (And If We All Lived Together). I spent yesterday in Paris doing interviews on behalf of the film which was made last year. What was so exciting was that the journalists all felt the film was really good. Many had seen it at festivals.…

LAST DAY

Posted on July 13, 2010, in Film, Television & Theater, My Blog, with 19 Comments

July 7th

Movie making is a strange profession. You become very close to a group of people..cast and crew members..and then it’s over and everyone goes their separate ways. I’ve learned that one has to be intentional if friendships formed on a movie set are to continue. Geraldine and I have pledged to remain friends. I find her fascinating with off-beat taste in all things.…

WE BUILT IT AND THEY CAME

I didn’t work today, luckily, because I got to bed very late. But I went out to the location later today to do some voice overs. When I got there, they were filming a scene around the pool with Geraldine’s grandchildren (Actually the director’s children playing the roles) and I couldn’t resist taking a picture. I have taken you through the whole process…first it was a vegetable garden, then they began to dig a hole for the pool, and so on.…

OK, SO I’VE BEEN PREOCCUPIED!

Posted on July 4, 2010, in Film, Television & Theater, My Blog, with 14 Comments

Happy 4th of July, all you compatriots. I haven’t blogged for awhile and that’s because Richard arrived in Paris and well, I’ve been otherwise occupied. It has been so much fun and here are some photos to catch you up a bit. But it’s not all Richard’s fault. We’ve been doing night shooting and that throws everything topsy turvy. But I have had some fine meals in some of Paris’s best and gone dancing a few times (no photos) and there’ve been events related to the Paris Film Festival —events honoring me.…
