Anne’s billion dollar love story
I love Anne Hathaway so I don’t care if they only photograph her sleepwalking. Now she’s part of a typical multi-billion dollar love story. It’s about WeWork. Which it didn’t. It’s called “We Crashed” and it’s on Apple TV+.
Hathaway: “This is about the two founders Rebekah and Adam Neumann. Jared Leto and I wanted to examine their experiences through the lens of a love story and see why people make choices. Without their love story, WeWork would never have happened.”
Leto: “Neumann was a captivating, colorful character. A recent and relevant immigrant who has built a business into a $47 billion empire from scratch. It’s about success and failure.”
Don’t cry for Argentina – or Neumann. He’s still worth around $1.4 billion.
From farm to film
ANOTHER movie. Everyone raves about minimum purchases and maximum prices. “The Soul of a Farmer” is a 35 minute short film about ex-chef Patty Gentry who is now growing up for celebrity chefs. Problems like moths eat the arugula, what we eat isn’t always what it says it is, there’s a lot of non-organic out there and other things you don’t need to know. Director Roger Sherman: “Patty farms 3 acres in Brookhaven on Long Island, next to Bellport. She rents from Isabella Rossellini, who rescues animals and whose 18 acres she saved from development.” Rossellini: “Patty the vegetable Picasso reminds me of my mother Ingrid Bergman. Same energy.” They now want to produce a longer film about vegetables. Like maybe a “To Beet Is Not To Beet”?
More from Moore
ZARAH Maillard performed with the rockers Goo Goo Dolls. Years ago, husband Gene Maillard, once a Grammy manager, invited Roger Moore to the Hotel du Cap in Antibes. Asking a waiter at a top-notch hotel on the French Riviera to reserve a table is a non-non. They asked. Le Kellner stuttered: “Don’t you have legs and feet? Are you a quadriplegic?” Moore laughed. He is remembered Zarah’s novel Diamonds are for cocktails.In addition, 73 years have passed since his first TV appearance.
Early in the morning with Sid
BERNIE & Sid, the biggest and hottest radio shows, have dominated WABC from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. since Lincoln went clean-shaven. All civilization listens to them.
Sid Rosenberg: “Started when I was a young man at WNEW-FM. Then an opportunity came to work with Don Imus. I said, ‘You’re crazy. He’s unhappy. He’s going to hate me.” They said, ‘True.’ So I said, ‘Okay.’ In 2005 I was fired and his producer Bernard McGuirk and I teamed up on WABC. Maybe not everyone loves me because I don’t lie or beat around the bush. Some people get scared when I tell it like it is. Our show, like some free-running others, has a delay. Another seven to ten seconds. Mine is one minute. It’s not a meticulous program. There are sexual innuendos. Brooklyn Tough Guy words you don’t typically hear on other shows, but I may. I rarely get in trouble. And I don’t prescribe any questions. There is no script. Everything off the cuff. Makes me appear more brilliant.”
I take his word for it. Then, assuming he’s having sex – which I probably doubt, knowing him – what’s his bedtime like?
“Go to bed around 9. The alarm clock is set for 3:45. In the office 4:45 a.m., start preparing at 5 a.m., take to the air at 6:05 a.m. sharp. I make my own coffee at home, my driver is the same cab driver outside every morning at 4:30am. He drives me to the office for 15 minutes while we talk and I have my coffee.”
DC, now sentencing a judge, brings up the story of a prosecutor who says, “Your Honor, this prisoner has committed robbery, forgery, grand larceny and arson. What’s your opinion?” Judge: “Listen, nobody’s perfect.”
Only in New York, kids, only in New York.
