Viola Davis has regrets about role in 'The Help'

Oscar-winning actress Viola Davis has regrets about her role as a maid in the 2011 film "The Help." The 53-year-old told The New York Times "it wasn't the voices of the maids that were heard." Davis says if you make a movie about what it felt like to work for white people and bring up children in 1963, then she wants to hear how you really feel about it. Davis says she never heard that in the film. Davis received a nomination for the Academy Award for best actress for her role as Aibileen Clark. She won a Screen Actors...

Review: Wide range of styles on Mark Knopfler's latest CD

Mark Knopfler, "Down the Road Wherever" (British Grove/Blue Note) At age 69, Mark Knopfler says he still loves touring, and even in the studio, the Glaswegian guitarist covers a lot of ground. On his latest album, "Down the Road Wherever," Knopfler serves up more than 70 minutes of music rooted in the Scottish Highlands ("Drovers' Road"), piano bars ("When You Leave") and cowboy country ("Nobody's Child"), among other locales. In other words, the range of styles is wide, even within single songs. "Just a Boy Away From Home" morphs from Robert Johnson to Rodgers and Hammerstein. Ditto the breadth of...

Here's how Mad King George III turned madder after reading Shakespeare's King Lear

According to papers on King George III’s reign published recently, for a royal in the grip of madness, Shakespeare was perhaps not the best reading material around. According to a story published in MailOnline, reports say the Mad King was given a copy of Shakespeare’s King Lear as he struggled with mental illness and it worsened his conditions. The play, written by the bard Shakespeare, recounts Lear’s gradual descent into insanity, and was blamed for a significant deterioration in the health of George, who was restrained in a straitjacket two days later when he became 'ungovernable'. According to his doctor...

Mercedes-Maybach GLS spied

The Mercedes-Benz GLS, formerly known as the GL-Class, has been one of the most luxurious full-size SUVs in the market. It combined an expansive eight-seater cabin with all the trappings and silky smooth ride of an S-Class saloon. But despite its time-tested luxury credentials, Stuttgart knows that to stand a chance against the Bentley Bentayga and the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, it has to upgrade the flagship offering from the three-pointed star to a more exalted Maybach badge. In fact, there has been rumours about a Maybach version of the GLS for a while now, and these were confirmed by the Vision...

No details were given about the terms.
