Alfred Molina is one of Britain’s most renowned and diverse characters actors of the stage, small screen and cinema. Molina’s starred in everything from big blockbusters like “Spider-Man 2” to the biopic “Frida.”Also, he has done voiceover work for 23 characters in film, television and video games.

Before he got the acting bug he was the son of immigrant working class parents from Italy and Spain. To support his pursuit of acting he lived off of welfare checks, had odd jobs and busked as a stand-up comedian until he was accepted into the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1977.

“My parents were immigrants to England, and I grew up in a working-class neighborhood in London that was full of other immigrant families from all over Europe, the West Indies, [and] Africa. When I went to school, all the kids were first-generation born in England,” said Molina.

Although he has played a villain in many roles, outside his costume Molina is a staunch advocate of immigration rights, AIDS research and Alzheimer’s care. His wife of almost 30 years suffers from Alzheimer. He currently has a film in post-production (Remember Isobel) that will benefit Alzheimer research.

“She doesn’t always recognize me. She did when I visited yesterday. You see flashes of the old person. That’s the heartbreaking part. You see those moments. You long for them. But they come less and less,” said Molina.

Molina will be in the television mini-seriesShow Me A Hero,” which premieres in August 16 on HBO. In 2016 he will be in three films and another mini-series “Close to the Enemy.”

The always controversial and sometimes tigerblood winning actor of Spanish and Irish descent, Charlie Sheen was born Carlos Irwin Estévez. Growing up, his actor father Ramón Antonio Gerardo Estévez also known as Martin Sheen, had bought him and his brother, Emilio Estévez, a Super 8 camera to make home films with their friends and other future actors Tom Cruise, Rob and Chad Lowe, as well as Sean and Chris Penn.

It wasn’t long before Sheen decided to follow in his father’s footsteps and become an actor himself. After a few uncredited roles in films that his father starred in, Sheen earned his stripes in films like “Platoon” and “Wall Street” in the 1980s and “Major League” and “Being John Malkovich” in the 1990s.

However, the Hollywood lifestyle started to plague Sheen and he fell into the trappings of drugs. By 1998, he was hospitalized for a cocaine overdose, which stalled his movie career. After going into rehab, Sheen started the 2000s strong by becoming an incredible television presence.

In 2000, Sheen replaced Michael J. Fox on “Spin City” and later won a Golden Globe for his role as Charlie Crawford. Shortly afterwards Sheen had his own sitcom, “Two and a Half Men,” and he received several more Golden Globe and Emmy nominations. By 2010, Sheen was the highest paid actor on television, making nearly 2 million per episode.

Despite his professional successes, his home life was a mess and eventually threatened his career. After three broken marriages, losing custody of four children, a broken engagement and accusations of domestic violence and  drug abuse, Sheen had a public breakdown. In 2011, he called the creator of Two and a Half, Chuck Lorre, derogatory names after his third failed attempt at rehab resulting in him getting fired from the popular show.

After finding out that he was going to become a grandfather by his eldest daughter in 2012, Sheen started getting his life back on track. He scored another hit show with “Anger Management,” regained temporary custody of his twins from his third marriage and was allowed to visit his two daughters from his second marriage.

Not only has he refocused his life on his children, and grandchild, but he has been and continues to be personally involved in several charities. He has raised and given money towards AIDS research, he  hosted a charity for rescue workers of the 9/11 attacks and he donated money from his “Truth” tour for the Japanese Earthquake relief fund. Also he donated the largest cash sum to the USO ($1 million) and started to raise awareness and funds for The Association of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Research, Awareness and Support.

Fun Facts

  • Charlie Sheen is one of the few recipients of the rare Aids for Aids Angel Award (AFA Angel Award)
  • Sheen is a published poet
  • He has appeared on film with all of siblings, his father and ex-wife Denise Richards
  • He initially dreamt of becoming a shortstop for the Cincinnati Reds

Dascha Polanco – On What She Looks for in a Man & How to Approach a Woman

Originally published in the January/February 2016 issue of LatinTRENDS Magazine

By Ottoniel Campos

At this point in time I cannot confirm or deny if Dascha Polanco, the amazing actress in the blockbuster hit movie “Joy” starring Jennifer Lawrence and Robert DeNiro, is single, married or in a relationship. But during our last interview, she informed me that she was single and ready to mingle… or something like that. As we approach this Valentine’s Day, it might behoove a few guys to take a bit of Ms. Polanco’s dating advice.

You’re single now and you’re a hopeless romantic with a lot of passion.

Yes, I am.

What type of guy do you like? Te gustan los gorditos, los flacos…?

I like everything. I have a thing for ginger. I go crazy with ginger (red hair) and freckles. Pero como te digo, yo no soy uumm, I’m not superficial. He could be shorter or taller. I don’t look at the physical but there has to be something that attracts me. Like they have to smell good, definitely. Hygiene is very important to me. Like if you talk to me and your ears have wax coming out… like c’mon! My best friend said, ‘You need somebody that will keep you on your toes.’ Because I need variation, I need entertainment. Let’s try new things. Let’s work together and let’s build an empire. Let’s be both established, both busy, but both make time to be together.

So how can a guy woo you?

Details. Show me attention. Especially when somebody is busy and takes time to call me, or to plan something out, or surprise me. It takes effort to do that. And I think that’s like, whoa! And what [also] sweeps me off my feet is when somebody knows what they want and go for it. And I’m a giver too, honey! I like gifts. I’m putting it out there. I love gifts. I’m tired of giving gifts and not getting it back. For real, so can I get a giver too… jeez! ¿Tú sabes lo que pasa? That I’ve always said that I want somebody like my father. My father always gave me everything that I wanted. From love to the material, to support. I’m still his princess. He’s always told me to have my own things and to be independent, but to treat others the way you want to be treated.

It makes sense. You want to be spoiled so you spoil others. You grew up in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. What do you think about guys approaching females on the street?

There’s nothing wrong with that. But you have to be creative, honey. Because usually if you’re [whistling and hissing] then you have nothing going on for yourself. Pero yo creo que you should approach a female and be really honest [and say] ‘Hey I think you’re really attractive. I want to take you out.’ It is what it is and [the guys] have to take that risk.

Should a guy grab a female’s hand to get her attention?

Ooh, that’s kind of intense. Let’s not touch. No touching.

Should a guy honk his horn from his car at a female walking in the street?

They should not honk like if they were a cab. Especially if you’re in the passenger seat and you’re honking. You should not be in the passenger side trying to holla at somebody.

What about a loud whistle or yelling to get the female’s attention?

You know what? Let’s do it like we’re writing a letter. Yeah, lets stick to a letter format. Dear Ms. Polanco. Can we just say ‘good morning, good evening, how are you?’ It doesn’t even have to be formal. It could be semi formal.

So no hollering, yelling or whistling. Got it. Guys from Brooklyn are usually cool with their pick-up lines. But not all guys are creative and funny. Was there a line that was too weird?

I was at a parade and this tigre me dice, ‘diablo mami you look so good with that girdle.’ I was wearing a dress and apparently he could see my girdle. Yeah, thanks. That’s so not appropriate to put a girl on blast about her girdle. But he was really feeling it too, like, ‘oh yeah that girdle.’ I’m like, yuck.

Benicio Del Toro set to play Kingpin of the Cuban-American Mafia in ‘The Corporation’!

<!– Benicio Del Toro set to play Kingpin of the Cuban-American Mafia in 'The Corporation'! –>

benicio-del-toro

Benicio Del Toro is set to play Jose Miguel Battle Sr., the Don of a Cuban-American Mafia, in a soon to be made film.

Del Toro will star in The Corporation which is a book of the same name written by author T.J. English and highlights the Cuban-American underworld.

Paramount Pictures & The Appian Way production company—owned by Actor Leonardo DiCaprio—were the victors in acquiring the rights to the book-to-film adaptation after a bidding war between Hollywood studios & production companies broke out last week. The film has been cited as becoming the “Cuban Version” of the The Godfather & American Gangster.”

The film’s screenplay will be written by David Matthews who has penned scripts for HBO series Boardwalk Empire & Vinyl and will surely capture the book’s “epic story” of the Cuban-American crime syndicate, The Corporation.

Del Toro will portray Jose Miguel Battle Sr. who was the head of the Cuban-American mafia. Prior to becoming the Godfather of the Cuban mafia, Battle Sr. was a former police officer during President Fulgencio Batista’s presidency prior to the Cuban Revolution; in the early 60s, he also assisted the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in training Cuban exiles, and volunteered as a soldier in the Cuban liberation effort of the Bay of Pigs Invasion in April 1961 in-which he was captured. After being released, Battle Sr. moved to Union City, New Jersey were he began The Corporation empire.

This is the first time Del Toro has portrayed an influential figure of the underworld. In Escobar: Paradise Lost, Del Toro played Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar so he is surely able to get into the mindset of what it takes to be the leader of such an organization.

There’s no word yet when the film goes into production, but so far it has Hollywood buzzing.

Selena Gomez interested in Older Men!

<!– Selena Gomez interested in Older Men! –>

large

Selena Gomez has expressed interest in dating older men, however she feels that older men may not feel the same due to her very young appearance.

In a recent interview, Gomez revealed that while she would be interested in dating men who are older she feels that the feeling may not be mutual because she still looks like a teenager.

I feel like I look 16 sometimes, which is a bummer because I would love to date older guys,” the 23-year-old singer/actress revealed.

When it comes to her youthful appearance, the former Disney Channel star has made critical remarks about her teenage appearance. Back in October, while appearing on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live Gomez made a similar comment to host Andy Cohen when asked if she was dating a fellow celebrity.

Now I know I look 16, but I’m 24,” Gomez told Cohen after he asked if she were romantic tied with David & Victoria Beckham’s 16-year-old son Brooklyn Beckham.

Age in years or appearance aside, in the interview Gomez also revealed that dating and meeting new guys in-general is particularly hard for her because her life has been a source of entertainment gossip which makes dating quite hard.

It’s hard, and I’m weirded out by the idea that a guy has Googled me before we meet, and that has happened,” Gomez describes, “I never intended for my life to become a tabloid story.”

Calle 13 is a Puerto Rican alternative urban band consisting of stepbrothers René Pérez Joglar (lead singer, songwriter), Eduardo José Cabra Martínez (multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, beat producer) and their half-sister Ileana Cabra Joglar (backing vocals). Their stage names are Residente, Visitante and PG-13.

The band also takes on social issues facing Puerto Ricans, Latinos and people all over the world. As the frontman of the band, Residente has no problem vocalizing the group’s stance on certain topics concerning music, politics and discrimination.

The siblings are big supporters for and independent Puerto Rico, Pérez is an ally of the LGBTQ community, and the brothers go out of their way not to make music about violence, misogyny and materialism.

I want Puerto Rico to be free and independent and have just one flag. The people here don’t work the way they should, and it’s because of the comfort they are feeling from you guys, from the States. We have a very low self-esteem. We feel that we can’t do it on our own. We as a country need to feel proud about our nation.”

I want  the world to know the name Oscar López Rivera.
