One Direction star Harry Styles is reportedly looking to buy his own vineyard in California.
The British heartthrob turned 21 last month (Jan15) and can now legally drink in the U.S., but he wants to take it to the next level and start producing his own wine.
A source tells U.K. newspaper the Daily Star Sunday, "He was talking animatedly about buying a vineyard in the Santa Barbara area where Paul McCartney owns a big property... Now Harry’s turned 21 he can not only legally drink in bars in America, he is also entitled to own a working winery, which he thinks would be a blast.”
Styles would follow in the footsteps of stars including David Beckham, Madonna, Drew Barrymore, Antonio Banderas, Olivia Newton-John, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie who have all previously taken up winemaking.
Netflix recently released its cast announcement for its upcoming 8-episode series, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. And, well, we can't remember the last time we were this excited for something. The incredible things this cast has gone on to do in the 14 years since this film came out is testament enough to their talent, and after watching it countless times, we've put together a list of just some of the reasons we can't wait:

7. And for its characters' ability to turn quite anything into a compliment:
8. For more Poehler pep talks in the post-Parks and Rec days (even if they're in the form of the anti-Knope).
9. For its characters, standing up for themselves, once and for all:
10. For its ability to handle any emergency in a calm, rational way:
You'd never even know there was something hurtling towards Earth in a potentially catastrophic way.
11. For its brutal assessments of other people's talents:

Side note: Elizabeth Banks, if you really do taste like burger, we love you more than we already did (which we thought was impossible).

14. For its absolutely perfect exits:
15. For its relatable teenage summer goals:
16. For its love stories, perhaps the greatest love stories ever told:
Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks, and Paul Rudd will officially reprise their roles from 2001 cult comedy Wet Hot American Summer for the forthcoming Netflix series. Bosses at the streaming service released a teaser trailer for the upcoming eight-episode series on Tuesday (27Jan15), and the video reveals the names of the cast members in the new installment, set against the backdrop of Jewish summer Camp Firewood, where the film takes place.
Along with Cooper, Banks, and Rudd, their co-stars including Christopher Meloni, Janeane Garogalo, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, and Molly Shannon will all reprise their roles for the reboot.
Creator David Wain will be back to helm the project, which takes place on the first day of the camp's "famous summer season, now 14 years after the film's debut."
The sound mixing team behind Christopher Nolan's sci-fi hit Interstellar has been nominated at the upcoming Cinema Audio Society (CAS) Awards despite receiving criticism about quality when the film was released.
The movie received complaints about its sound when it opened, with critics claiming they struggled to hear some of the dialogue because the effects were too loud, and many wondered if there was a technical issue at their local cinema. Nolan publicly defended the sound quality, insisting every aspect was intentional, and the movie has now been recognized for its achievement in sound mixing.
The team behind Interstellar has been nominated in the Motion Picture - Live Action category alongside American Sniper, Unbroken, Guardians of the Galaxy and awards season favorite Birdman.
Nominees in the animated movie category include Big Hero 6, The Boxtrolls, The Lego Movie, How to Train Your Dragon 2 and Penguins of Madagascar. TV series Modern Family, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Homeland, Sherlock and Fargo are among those nominated in the TV categories. Oscar-winning sound engineer David Macmillan will receive the CAS Career Achievement Award.
The winners will be announced at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles on 14 February (15).
The all-star cast of cult 2001 comedy Wet Hot American Summer is getting back together for an eight-episode Netflix series. The film, featuring Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Bradley Cooper and Amy Poehler, among others, was a box office flop upon its release, but has since become a DVD favourite, prompting creators David Wain and Michael Showalter to get the gang back together for a TV series. Wain will direct the project.
News about a Wet Hot American Summer revival first surfaced in 2012, when Showalter discussed plans for a prequel to the original, about life at a fictional early-1980s Jewish summer camp.
Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Molly Shannon, Christopher Meloni and Michael Ian Black are also expected to return for the new project.
Session guitarist Jeff Golub has died, just three years after losing his sight following the collapse of his optic nerve. The rocker, who worked extensively with Rod Stewart and fronted jazz band Avenue Blue, passed away on Thursday (01Jan15), aged 59.
Golub also appeared on all of Billy Squier's Capitol albums and toured with Stewart from 1988 to 1995.
His final album, Train Kept a Rolling, was released in 2013 and featured guests Christopher Cross and former Ambrosia leader David Pack.
Late last year (14), he was diagnosed with progressive supranuclear palsy - a rare degenerative brain disease, according to UltimateClassicRock.com.
Leading the tributes to Golub is saxophonist Dave Koz, who writes, "I love you, Jeffrey. Thank you for all you brought to our lives."
In a world where celebrities are constantly bombarded with paparazzi and where every detail of their life is public information, it seems very difficult for many to keep a long-term relationship. These twelve couples are among some of the most stable and enduring celebrity pairs of our time. They defy the odds by sticking through it and often, by keeping their lives as private as they possibly can.
1. Meryl Streep and Don Gummer: 36 years
Meryl Streep opted out of marrying someone famous and married this friend of her brother. Because Meryl wanted to keep her marriage out of the spotlight, it is still very impressive how little the world knows about him. The couple have four children together, and when Meryl finally did mention him in her 2012 Oscars' acceptance speech it was adorable. "“I’m going to thank Don because when you thank your husband at the end of the speech they play him out with the music and I want him to know that everything I value most in our lives you’ve given me," she said.
2. Ozzy Osbourne and Sharon Osbourne: 32 years

This couple has had their fair share of ups and downs, but have remained together nonetheless. They met in England when Sharon's father, a music manager and concert producer, managed Black Sabbath, the band Ozzy was the lead singer of. Ozzy was kicked out of the band because of drug abuse and Sharon ended up taking him on as a client. Ozzy continued to struggle with substance abuse and was even arrested for attempting to strangle Sharon while under the influence.
3. Denzel Washington and Pauletta Washington: 31 years

According to HelloBeautiful, this couple met while co-starring in the film Wilma in 1977. Five years later, they were married and now have four children together. According to the site, Pauletta told Oprah that she fell in love with his personality first. “I thought he was cute, but I fell in love with his spirit. And then I thought, ‘Hmm, not a bad package,'" she said.
4. Jamie Lee Curtis and Christopher Guest: 29 years

According to People, Jamie first saw Christopher in a magazine when he was an actor in the spoof The is Spinal Tap. She felt an immediate connection to him. "That's why I developed my smirk—which is why, when I looked at Chris's smirk in the picture, I basically saw myself. I saw a kindred spirit," she says of seeing his photo. Jamie gave him her number through an agent and the two became bicoastal lovers soon after. They married in 1984 and have adopted two kids, Annie and Thomas.
5. Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson: 26 years

The pair originally met while Tom was still married to his college sweetheart on the set of ABC sitcom, Blossoming Buddies, when Rita guest starred for an episode. They didn't get together despite the chemistry they both felt, until after Tom's divorce in 1987. In 1988, they married and have since had two children together. "Literally, a wave of — if love is a feeling, or a cellular thing that happens to your body, it went through me, and that’s pretty much who he is, and how he’s been," Rita said of their relationship to Piers Morgan in 2012.
6. Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick: 26 years

Interestingly enough, the couple first met when Kyra was 12, at a viewing of a matinee play Kevin starred in. He was 19 at the time and nothing came of the meeting, except Kyra's brother urging her to tell him how much she enjoyed the play. Their relationship started several years later when they worked on the set of Lemon Sky together.
7. Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan: 26 years

This pair is especially inspirational as they have continually supported each other through a chronic illness. They met while working on Family Ties in 1985, but didn't start dating until two years later. Early on in their marriage, Michael was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, but the couple have remained stable. "When we married, we married--and that was it. We were in love then, as we are now, and we planned to stay married," Michael told O Magazine in 2002.
8. John Travolta and Kelly Preston: 23 years

Despite losing their 16-year-old son, Jett, in 2009, the pair have stayed strong. They first met while filming The Experts, but nothing formed except for a friendship, because Kelly was married at the time. John told Redbook what he thought of her initially: "I had interest in her because even in spite of the trouble that she was having in her marriage, she was willing to stick through tough times with him, which really showed character. I just remember thinking, God, if we're ever single at the same time, I think this is really the one."
9. David Bowie and Iman: 22 years
According to Huffington Post, the rockstar and supermodel fell in love on a blind date in 1990 and were married two years later. The couple are very quiet about their life and their love story, but do have two children, Zulekha (Iman's child from a previous marriage) and Alexandria. Iman told The Independent that though David knew it was love at first sight, she was a little overwhelmed at first. “I was not ready for a relationship. Definitely, I didn't want to get into a relationship with somebody like him," she said.
10. Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos: 18 years

This beautiful couple met on the set of All My Children where they were onscreen lovers. According to People, they dated secretly for a year and then eloped in Las Vegas. In fact this photo is from their onscreen marriage, because much of their offscreen romance has been kept secret. "It just happened. The next thing you know, we're married, and then four months later we were pregnant," Consuelos told Redbook. The couple have three children.
11. Hugh Jackman and Deborra-Lee Furness: 18 years

The couple first met in 1995 in Melbourne, Australia on the set of the TV drama Correlli. They both felt initial attraction and though Hugh hesitated to propose, he overcame it and they were married a year later. "I decided, I won't ask her to marry me for six months," Jackman told Town and Country magazine. "Then after four months I thought, that's the most ridiculous rule!" The couple have two children, Oscar and Ava. "It gets better every year," Furness said.
12. Sarah Jessica Parker and Mathew Broderick: 17 years

Another couple that have successfully kept their relationship under wraps, Sarah and Matthew refuse to say much about the secrets to their success. In last year's Harper's Bazaar, Sarah did gush about him shorthly. “There’s also the reality of your life,” she said. “I love Matthew Broderick. Call me crazy, but I love him. We can only be in the marriage we are. We’re very devoted to our family and our lives. I love our life. I love that he’s the father of my children, and it’s because of him that there’s this whole other world that I love.”
Robert De Niro has confirmed he is reuniting with Jennifer Lawrence in a film about the inventor of the Miracle Mop.
The veteran star will play "a father" alongside his Silver Linings Playbook co-star in director David O. Russell's film, titled Joy.
He says, "Yeah, I am going to do something with them. I am going to play a father." The movie recounts the real rags-to-riches tale about Joy Mangano, the woman who became a millionairess after launching the cleaning product on American shopping network QVC.
Lawrence is set to play Mangano.
This will be the third time De Niro has worked with Lawrence and Russell - in 2012, the actor portrayed Bradley Cooper's dad in Silver Linings Playbook and he also made a cameo in 2013's American Hustle.
Breakups are never an easy thing. They require ice cream and a strong faith that true love prevails. You would think TV breakups would be less heart-wrenching, but these ten proved otherwise. It's hard to see couples you feel so attached to end suddenly or slowly derail. Relive these tear-jerking moments as we commemorate these once seemingly perfect couples.
10. Sarah & Mark- Parenthood
The chemistry between the two was strong, but Sarah's heart just wasn't in it. Even though she's the main character we were feeling pretty bad for poor, in-love Max.
9. Brooke & Lucas- One Tree Hill
Whether it was their off screen romance that made this hard or not, these two being apart just seemed terribly wrong.
8. Cristina & Dr. Burke- Grey's Anatomy
Cristina finally let her guard down only to be left at the altar. It was hard to see such a tough woman be so vulnerable.
7. Blair & Chuck- Gossip Girl
The pair had to split despite loving each other. In the end, it ended up being okay, but at the time it was heart-breaking for us all.
6. Topanga & Cory- Boy Meets World
The long-term pair were together for most of the series, but did have a few splits. The hardest to endure was when they were older and Cory kissed someone else. We were so mad at him!
5. Jess & Nick- New Girl
It seemed they were FINALLY together and doing well when all of the sudden there was trouble in paradise. We're still hoping these too buds (along with Schmidt and Cece) will get back together.
4. Spencer & Toby- Pretty Little Liars
They had gone through so much together but "A" and other complications succeeded in ending their relationship. When will these characters learn that keeping secrets just hurts their loved ones?!
3. Lorelai & Luke- Gilmore Girls
This episode has us screaming at the TV to warn Luke to include Lorelai and to warn Lorelai to stay away from Christopher. They didn't seem to hear our advice and ended up with a painful break up.
2. Carrie & Aidan- Sex and the City
I know Mr. Big is the one, but for awhile we fell in love with Aidan. He was so good to Carrie that it was hard to see them split after the proposal.
1. Rachel & Ross- Friends
The ultimate painful TV break up was the when Ross thought they "were on a break." Again, we were screaming at Ross to not be so dumb and crying with Rachel as she found out and realized she couldn't stay with him.
British conductor Christopher Hogwood has died at the age of 73. Hogwood passed away in Cambridge, England on Wednesday (24Sep14).
