Filmmaker James Cameron and his wife Suzy Amis Cameron are planning to turn the California school they opened in 2006 into the first all-vegan educational centre in the U.S. The Avatar director and his actress wife founded the Muse School in Calabasas nearly a decade ago, and its main goal is to teach kids about taking care of the environment.
This autumn (15), they will be introducing a new scheme to the school, banning meat and only serving meals which are completely plant-based.
Cameron tells The Hollywood Reporter, "Plant-based eating - meaning the meals that are served at Muse will be 100 per cent plant-based. The average person would say vegan, but we say whole food, plant-based. It's about raising kids who don't think it's strange or exotic or worthy of a pat on the back to be doing the right thing for the living biosphere."
Hollywood director James Cameron has moved a step closer to becoming a permanent fixture in New Zealand following a ruling which has paved the way for his residency application. The Titanic director has moved his family Down Under from the U.S. and last year (12), he began the lengthy process of becoming an official resident.
He filed a residency application with the New Zealand Overseas Investment Office (OIO) as part of a three-year process which requires a local investment of around $8 million (£5.3 million).
Cameron previously purchased a farm in the country and a number of other properties, and now officials have approved his plans to buy up 420 hectares of land in Wairarapa, north-east of the capital city of Wellington.
The director, his wife Suzy Amis and their three children will now be eligible to apply for permanent residency at the end of the designated three-year period, and they will also have to stay in the country for 88 days over the final 24 months, according to Stuff.co.nz.
The Artist star Missi Pyle wore a recycled dress to the Oscars - Venezuelan designer Valentina Delfino's turquoise gown was chosen for the actress after she won the Red Carpet Green contest created by director James Cameron's wife Suzy Amis.
“Alexander wept, for there were no more worlds to conquer.” Though originally penned to describe the imperialist of ancient days, this solemn Hans Gruber (not Plutarch) quotation will someday be applicable in describing a modern rising titan. One who continues to take on marathon projects. One who distributes films to America that have greater impact than natural disasters. One who, as it seems, won’t be satisfied until he makes the world’s first trillion dollar movie.
I am talking, of course, about James Cameron: who seems to be the most powerful man in the world. In addition to a Twentieth Century Fox deal for two Avatar sequels—which are meant to finish off the remainder of America who was not overcome by the outburst of depression over not being able to actually live on Pandora—Cameron is working on another doubtlessly epic film, titled Myth. Cameron’s details are as vague as the title, but considering those involved, including Avatar star Sam Worthington and Transformers series producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura as producers, there is no reason to doubt that this film will inspire the next major world religion. Also attached to the project is videogame writer Will Staples, responsible for Lair and Pursuit Force.
So what do we know about this project? Very little, including whether or not Sam Worthington is part of the cast. But what can we be sure about? Total world domination. I'm onto you, Cameron.
Gloria Stuart, the actress best known for her role as the elder Rose in one of the biggest films of all time, Titanic, passed away in Los Angeles on Sunday at the age of 100. She had just celebrated her centennial year on July 4.
Before becoming the old lady who famously dropped the “Heart of the Ocean” into the sea, Stuart led a fairly successful film career, starring in a handful of 1930s films including The Invisible Man and Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm. She retired from acting in the mid-1940s and instead decided to focus on painting, but it wouldn’t be long before the acting bug bit her again.
She returned to her roots, starring in a slew of T.V. movies and working her way up to the role that would nab her an Academy Award nomination with Titanic.
Born and raised in Southern California, Stuart was mired in the Hollywood lifestyle. In addition to her acting, she was a founding member of the Screen Actor’s Guild, was married to screenwriter Arthur Sheekman, and was the oldest person ever to be nominated for an Oscar.
Though she didn’t win the award back in 1998, she did make her mark. She will definitely be long remembered as the beloved, charming character that audiences fell in love with.

Although he attended a think tank on Tuesday regarding the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, Reuters reports that James Cameron on Wednesday said BP has turned down his offer to help combat the situation.
"Over the last few weeks I've watched, as we all have, with growing horror and heartache, watching what's happening in the Gulf and thinking those morons don't know what they're doing," Cameron said at the All Things Digital technology conference, Reuters reports.
Cameron did not say explicitly who he meant when he referred to "those morons."
He did, however, say his offer of help to BP was "graciously" turned down.
Regarding assisting the government, Cameron said the key issue he is interested in helping out with is methods of monitoring the oil leak and investigating it.
"The government really needs to have its own independent ability to go down there and image the site, survey the site and do its own investigation," he said.
The Terminator star embarked on a relationship with the filmmaker in the early 1990s and the pair had a daughter together before marrying in 1997.
They split just eight months later when Cameron rekindled a previous relationship with Suzy Amis, who starred in his movie Titanic.
And Hamilton has a stark warning for the actress, who wed Cameron in 2000.
She tells Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, "The woman he can't get is always his dream girl.
"It's interesting because while he was making Titanic, Suzy at that time was the gargoyle on the end of my bed, waiting to swoop in.
"Now I'm the gargoyle on her bed because for Jim, the one who doesn't end up with him is always the one he wants. I'm the one who got away, and she has to live with that."
Cameron has been married five times - to Hamilton and Amis, as well as to Sharon Williams, Gale Anne Hurd and Kathryn Bigelow.
"I have been married five times. I'm a perfectionist, so I kept trying until I got it right, which I have... Suzy Amis is a keeper." Moviemaker JAMES CAMERON has found his soulmate after five attempts at married life.
Maverick moviemaker James Cameron is urging Hollywood studios to "fight for survival" and stamp-out piracy by flooding films with technical wizardry and cinematic special effects.
The Titanic director fears declining sales will irreparably damage box office takings and wants to see more movies employing digital 3-D technology to entice tiring viewers with exciting new experiences.
Cameron insists distributors have taken the wrong direction in their attempts to combat piracy, arguing that enhancing the cinema experience is the only way to stop illegal, substandard copies dominating the market.
He says, "D-cinema can do it, for a number of reasons, but because D-cinema is an enabling technology for 3-D. Digital 3-D is a revolutionary form of showmanship that is within our grasp. It can get people off their butts and away from their portable devices and get people back in the theatres where they belong.
"We're so scared of piracy right now that we're ready to pimp out our mothers. This whole day-and-date DVD release nonsense? Here's an answer: (Digital cinema is) one of the strongest reasons I've been pushing 3-D for the past few years because it offers a powerful experience which you can only have
in the movie theater."

Titanic director James Cameron has joined forces with the world's largest casino operator in a bid to create a high-tech theme park at a new casino and mega-resort in Singapore.
The Hollywood director is executive producer of the project, along with Harrah's Entertainment Inc., to create a high-tech venture called "iPort."
Cameron will contribute rights and oversight to develop interactive rides based on his hit movies.
He explains, "We've been discussing already an Aliens attraction and there's a discussion of a Titanic attraction, what I call the "Titanic restaurant-slash-near-death-experience."
In the plans, the Titanic's first-class dining room would be re-created in one iPort area; following a dinner, visitors could then move on to a mock-up of the ship's boiler room and see a re-creation of the doomed ship's collision with the iceberg via a fire-and-ice filled show.
Cameron said other attractions would be based on anime characters, videogames or even Bollywood films.
The bid is part of a development project to enhance the Marina Bay site.
The winning bid will be announced later this year, and if accepted, the theme park opening would be scheduled for 2010.

Former model who was introduced on TV's "The Merv Griffin Show" as 'The Face of the Eighties' by modeling agency head Eileen Ford. After making her film debut as the object of Kevin Costner and Sam Robards' attentions in "Fandango" (1985), Amis won a 1986 Theatre World Award for her off-Broadway debut in "Fresh Horses". Since then, she has shown a certain independence in her project choices that belies her former image. She has played in films ranging from "Plain Clothes" (1988) to John Boorman's "Where the Heart is" (1990). Her two largest roles to date have been in the independently produced features "To Small Bodies" (1993), Beth B.'s tense look at relationships co-starring Fred Ward, and "The Ballad of Little Jo" (1993). In the latter she played the title character, a 19th century woman who cross-dressed in order to live her life in the Old West. Amis appeared briefly as a lawyer involved with Gabriel Byrne in "The Usual Suspects" (1995) and was the granddaughter of shipwreck survivor Rose (Gloria Stuart) in James Cameron's "Titanic" (1997).
