Will Arnett in lightweight linen suits

Will Arnett in lightweight linen suits | Cultural Trendz | Scoop.it
The Book of Gob Will Arnett is talking about acting, and he's making himself a little nauseated. "Even on Arrested Development, as absurd as it is, you always bring some of your own stu≠, on an emotional level, to the character." He pauses, and you can picture the needle on the Actorly Self-Serious Meter in his head ticking into Sean Penn zone. "Boy, I hate saying that: 'to the character.' " Arnett won't say much about the fate of his character, Gob Bluth, in the new AD episodes that start streaming on Netflix on May 26, but he does suggest that the eldest Bluth son manages to meaningfully connect with other humans—or at least takes a stab at it. "I'm not saying Gob deserves true friendship, but he really is seeking it." Arnett also hints at a closer bond between Gob and his brother Michael, played by Jason Bateman, one of Arnett's real-life best friends. Bateman "is like my brother," he says, "and that makes it easy for us to have this complicated brother-like relationship on the show. You know, Jason and I love each other. I mean, he loves me and I like him."—Brendan Vaughan Disaster Averted! Whether you're an intern or a CFO, the once grossly out-of-style linen suit has become the go-to business suit of summer.

A heatwave is not a reason to abandon your sense of style

A heatwave is not a reason to abandon your sense of style | Cultural Trendz | Scoop.it

Shorts are awesome, but do a back-view check before buying.

The big mistake people make when dressing for warm weather is that they don't dress for the warm weather – they dress as if they are on holiday. Hence the all too common sight of raggedy hems on long boho dresses being dragged along high street pavements and G-string bikinis in the park. This is not summer dressing – this is Magaluf dressing. Unless you're in Magaluf, don't do that. For the rest of us, here are the rules.

1. You are hot, bothered and sweaty, so keep your clothes simple.

2. Simple means wearing classic styles as opposed to clothes with annoying fiddly bits, such as tassles, which only get dirty, and flappy collars that rub on your sweaty skin and give you a rash. Simple styles, by contrast, include:

3. Tea dresses, but you have to look hard to find one that isn't too Boden. A good tea dress should end just on the knee, have a defined waist, and sleeves that stop above the elbow.

4. Polo shirt dresses are great, too. You can get them at American Apparel, Lacoste and Le Petit Bateau in the adult section, unless you're a baby, in which case you should shop in the baby section (and congratulations on your precocious reading skills).

5. The unfortunately named peasant dress can be great, but don't get one that is weighed down with too much embroidery and Monsoon-style shards of mirror. You are aiming for light and breezy, remember. Milly is great for these, as is Topshop.

6. Dark colours in the summer are depressing. And hot.

7. Shorts are awesome but do a back-view check before buying them.

8. Watch out for sleeves that are too tight and ride up into your armpits. You have made this mistake before. Do yourself a favour and don't make it again.

9. Spaghetti straps are the devil's work. The only thing you should wear that has spaghetti straps is a bra.

10. Yes, you do need to wear a bra in the summer.

I totally agree!

How to Become Iron Man

How to Become Iron Man | Cultural Trendz | Scoop.it
I'm Tony Stark. I build neat stuff, I got a great girl, and, occasionally, save the world. So why can't I sleep?

 

Not many people realize this but up until 2006, Robert Downey Jr was one of the most talented but least successful actors in Hollywood.

He'd been making movies for almost thirty years without a single financial hit, unless you count the 1986 Rodney Dangerfield comedy 'Back to School' in which Downey Jr. had a small part. So when Iron Man's director Jon Favreau finally got Marvel to agree to let him at least screen test for the role of Tony Stark, Downey Jr was ready, beyond ready. This was his ticket to the big time after years and years of critical acclaim and not much to show for it.

In GQ's cover story this month we get a glimpse into how he snagged the role that changed his life (he's since pocketed a $50 million payday for 'The Avengers' grand slam, made two Iron Man sequels and scored with two Sherlock Holmes films). I love these types of stories because they remind us what's possible when luck meets preparation and a frustrated existence gives way to destiny:

Even after the film's director, Jon Favreau, passed on the word from Marvel that it wasn't going to happen, Downey refused to listen. (Favreau later explained that Marvel had actually been even more definite: "Under no circumstances are we prepared to hire him for any price.") Downey persisted nonetheless, and eventually he was told he'd at least get a screen test.

He had three weeks to ready himself. The way Downey describes what happened in that period seems itself like an origin montage from a superhero story: a time of focused preparation and of "spiritual/ ritualistic processes" that he still considers private and prefers not to detail. He worked on the scenes over and over: "The missus says she could've woken me up in the middle of the night and I'd have recited the audition dialogue in double time."

"It was all shock, awe, conquer—it was about devastating the competition," he says. When he walked into the room at Raleigh Studios, he was ready. "Right before the first take I felt like I almost left my body—a sudden surge of nerves," he says, and remembers wondering whether they had noticed. "Then, all of a sudden, it was like coasting downhill on an old Schwinn Cruiser, like I could do no wrong."

The rest is history - Robert Downey Jr is now remarried, has a one year old son and can write his own ticket. Given the state of his personal life, health and career just ten years ago, this has been quite a remarkable turn of events. Very cool to witness.
