Tony Goldwyn from Scandal



 Vulture got ahold of Tony Goldwyn ahead of tonight’s season-three premiere (10 p.m. on ABC) to help sort through the many feelings about their breakup. And guess what? He found it just as mind-boggling.

Olivia calls the whole thing off at the end of last season because she wants to take care of her Gladiators. When you read that, did you think, “Seriously? That’s why? Why can’t she do both?”
Oh, totally. I couldn’t believe it. I was very upset. I was upset as Fitz, and for Fitz. But I trust Shonda. It’s rare that I call Shonda to say, “I’m not feeling this. I don’t get it.” Shonda knew what she was doing but it was very hard for me to swallow. Olivia rejects me yet again. And it was such a non-specific reason.

Yeah, so I assumed it was her fear acting out again. The worst thing was when I go and lay my head on Mellie’s lap. I couldn’t get my brain around that. Of course, that all becomes clear in the season.

Is this the season when Fitz will make some big moves to be with Olivia? Letting the clock run out is one thing but … 
I’m sure he will, and I guarantee you everything will blow up in his face every time he tries to do it. Fitz has not given up. He won’t. He’d rather die than lose Olivia, I really believe that.

For a minute there, he did have the upper hand with Mellie. That never happens!
I know, and it was so quickly taken away. It was a fantastic speech in Cyrus’s hospital room, wasn’t it? It was basically his fantasy speech, finally being able to tell Mellie the way it was gonna be in his utopian, delusional mind. It sounded so good.

What is the secret to nailing a Shonda monologue like that one?
Shonda writes very much in the same way as Aaron Sorkin. She writes these big, theatrical speeches. The rhythms of them are really natural, kind of like music, so I don’t find them that hard to do. But I find that I really have to maintain my energy level. You have to eat healthy, work out, be ready. For me — and this is like a dumb, technical, actor thing — I have to be using my breath properly. I’m sure people make fun of me, but I do heavy breathing before a scene. I’m always doing breathing exercises. People must think I’m such a freak. But it’s really required.

What’s a good breathing exercise?
Do you ever do yoga? I love yoga breathing exercises; they’re very helpful. Alternate Nostril Breathing or Fire Breath. I also read novels out loud so that my diction is crisp. When you talk really fast, you gotta speak clearly and not feel like you’re enunciating everything. That can feel phony … or actor-y.

In a preview for the season-three premiere, ABC released a new clip of you and Olivia in the White House bunker. The bunker!
[Laughs.] It was pretty cool. I get this profound distress signal from Olivia. At the end of season two, our secret is out, so the White House is under fire. Olivia can’t make a move, so she sends this signal that means go to the bunker. Mainly, it’s used during a nuclear war.

Right. Exactly.
It’s suggestive of how severe this crisis is, Denise.

Can we talk about Fitz and the VP? You and Kate Burton have played husband and wife before.
We’ve played husband and wife twice, actually. Once, in this Showtime movie called Love Matters, which was twenty years ago, and then we also did a play in New York five or six years ago by Theresa Rebeck.

Of Smash fame.
Yeah, it was called The Water’s Edge at Second Stage. She murdered me in that one [laughs]. After stripping me naked onstage, she murdered me. So we’ve always had a contentious relationship, me and Kate.

So you have fun then.
It’s the best. Kate and I have known each other for 30 years. We met at my very first job at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. We were both non-equity actors. She was at Yale Drama School and I was in college. We’ve got some beautifully written scenes coming up. It’s a different dynamic between Fitz and Sally in the beginning of the year.

You don’t get many – if any? – scenes with the Gladiators. But you did get to work with them in the episode you directed from last season, “A Woman Scorned.” What was that like?
That was one of the best things about getting to direct, and it’s one of the things that makes me sad about the show. They have so many incredible actors over there and they have so much fun. We only see each other at the table reads. Olivia Pope & Associates, it’s like being in high school. It’s not at all like the White House. I mean, we have a good time in the White House, we laugh our asses off, but the Gladiators are constantly screwing around, and the ringleader is Kerry Washington. They’re just laughing all the time — screaming, teasing each other, goofing around. You cannot get them quiet to start shooting at all. One of the producers told me, “You just have to yell ‘Action!’ Don’t get them to try and quiet down.” I really felt like a schoolteacher, and they really made fun of me, but I’d literally go, “Action! Okay, start acting! Aaaaaact!” The White House? It’s more grown-up, frankly.

You’ve said your favorite scene so far is inauguration night, when Olivia and Fitz make love in the oval office. Kerry has said she hates doing the sex scenes. What was filming it like?
I try not to take it personally, but she can’t stand it. What I loved about that scene, I mean, the sex part of it, it’s just absurd what we do, but it was such a fabulously conceived scene. It was inauguration night, they’re sneaking in the office together, and we have this flirty thing happening, and then it ends outrageously. Sex on the Oval Office desk. I knew the audience would just go crazy when they saw it. It was fun to do. And it was weird and graphic in one sense, but it wasn’t graphic. What we were doing was like, Whoa, really? And I go down on her. But I didn’t feel exposed. It wasn’t like some of our other sex scenes, which are more about that.

What can you say about Divergent? I know Ashley Judd, who you directed in Someone Like You, is in it as well, playing your character’s wife.
You know, I met Ashley on the first movie she ever did. It was a comedy few people have seen called Kuffs, and I did it with Christian Slater. Ashley got her SAG card on it. She had, I think, one line, and I remember her because she was this gorgeous girl. I remember going, Who’s that? Then, of course, she became a movie star. Anyways, Divergent was a fantastic reunion with her. The movie is going to be really good, I think. They’ve got a great cast of kids, and it’s pretty intense. Shailene Woodley got pretty banged up.

Top 5 Hollywood Parties Of All Time




For us ordinary individuals, parties are events for hanging out with companions, having a couple of beverages and giving a little a chance to free. Be that as it may, for big names, parties are chances to parade their insane measures of money and toss the IT occasion of the season/year/thousand years. Fiscally dependable curmudgeons may sneer, yet we’re taking notes on these big name ragers in readiness for whenever we discover several million dollars copying a gap in our pockets. Here, the five most scandalous big name bashes ever.

YSL Opium Launch Party

You know your gathering is excellent when Andy Warhol has FOMO. The craftsman grumbled in The Andy Warhol Diaries about missing the dispatch of Yves Saint Laurent’s new aroma, Opium, in 1978, which occurred on board the Peking docked at New York Harbor. Playing up the East Asian topic, Laurent decked out the deck in 2,000 Hawaiian orchids, Chinese sanctuary themes and a 1,000-pound bronze Buddha statue, all at the cost of $300,000 (about $1.2 million today). There was even talk that the tummy of the ship contained a genuine opium lair. After firecrackers appear, a first class choice of the 800 participants made a beeline for Studio 54 for the after-party.

Bianca Jagger’s Birthday at Studio 54

YSL was just a single of many VIPs to have ragers at the notorious Studio 54. Among the club’s numerous awards, including the introduction of the Midori Sour in the ’70s, Bianca Jagger’s birthday merits specific consideration. At the occasion, the then-spouse of Mick rode around the club’s move floor on a white stallion (drove by an exposed goliath shrouded in gold sparkle, mind you), commencing the VIP pattern of making a passageway on a creature. We have Jagger to thank for Heidi Klum’s Halloween ensemble of Lady Godiva, finish with a white stallion, and for Katy Perry’s passage to Perez Hilton’s 32nd birthday party on the back of an elephant. Much obliged to you, Lady Jagger.

Miley Cyrus’ 21st Birthday Party

For her critical change from underage, not indeed mystery partier to lawful, out-and-open consumer, Miley Cyrus arranged a gathering that wedded her Disney roots with her tense pop star aspirations. Kindred tyke star Emma Roberts blended with Ke$ha. Inflatable sex toys and strippers joined a goliath re-making of the Lorax from Dr Seuss. What’s more, the birthday cake truly encapsulated Cyrus; the sweet was etched like a Greek bare of the pop star with cannabis leaves deliberately set to keep the cake negligibly humble.

Sean Parker’s Halloween Party

A few gatherings live on in chatter, yet the Napster organiser’s medication energised Halloween party discovered interminability in the film. Parker has vocally denounced Justin Timberlake’s portrayal of his celebrating courses in The Social Network, however, on account of the tech business person’s 2009 gathering, nobody’s tuning in to his grumblings. The $150,000 costumed issue included 100 containers of Cristal—among other (illicit) substances—yet it was only one of various medication powered occasions that prompt Parker’s gathering kid notoriety and inevitable exit from Facebook. We trust the tech investor got the opportunity to drink all that Champagne before the cops typically separated the gathering.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s 38th Birthday

Not all big name parties are decadent. Leo is now one of our interminable drinking legends, offering muddled celebs a sparkling case of how to live sumptuously without turning into a rich. However, we’re significantly more awed he kept up this good example status at his birthday party in 2012. As Leo ticked one year more like 40, the performing artist, encompassed by visitors like Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Cameron Diaz and Robert De Niro, thought not about his impending mortality, but instead of others. For each jug of liquor bought at The Darby that night, he sent a bit of the return to the American Red Cross. The philanthropy got $500,000 altogether.

Top 7 Dragon Ball Super Moments




Having first showed up on Japanese screens on the fifth of July, 2015, Dragon Ball Super now has ended the scene. With the show not having season breaks (check this out Game of Thrones fans!), there has been a fresh out of the plastic new scene about each Sunday for as far back as two years. In that day and age, the prominent anime has given us numerous extraordinary minutes where our jaws just really wanted to hit the floor.

With such a significant amount to look over, here is our best endeavour at making up a Top 7:

Master Roshi’s Last Stand

Who does not love Master Roshi?

Despite the fact that Roshi can be a debased old man in some cases, he knows how to utilise his combative techniques abilities against adversaries he can deal with. He was the principal contender who created the Kamehameha and educated both Krillin and Goku. Roshi likewise won the “Universes Martial Arts Tournament,” and even figured out how to overcome Goku as Jackie Chun.

Amid his battle against Conway in the “Competition of Power,” Roshi’s debased shenanigans outwitted him, however he some way or another figured out how to control his inclinations, until the point when Frost harmed him gravely. At last, Roshi did not have any battle left in him and dropped out of the stage. Therefore, he was wiped out, and Beerus earned his regard.

Much regard, Roshi.

Of course, he was not a similar warrior in those days, but instead, he was ready to push his breaking points and battle for his universe. At any rate, Roshi had a couple of minutes to sparkle in the competition. To finish everything off, he had a passionate send-off and picked not to continue battling.

Universe 7 vs. Aniraza

Universe 7’s great triumph!

As Universe 3’s last any desire for winning the “Competition of Power” was finding some conclusion, Aniraza was an ultimate trump card with more power than you would ever envision. With perpetual obliteration and large speed capacity available to him, this enormous combination was so intense; it even figured out how to send Universe 7 flying noticeably all around. With a specific end goal to end Aniraza’s rule of dread, the rest of the individuals from Universe 7 meet up and give it they’re all in a consolidated assault.

We could never have envisioned seen Android 17, Frieza, Gohan, and two Super Saiyan Blues collaborating (Goku and Vegeta). This was a unique kind of group, and I am happy we could witness their gigantic cooperation. At last, Aniraza was excessively for Universe 7’s consolidated assault, and therefore, Universe 3 was defeated.

The Goku Black Revelation

Presently, that is the manner by which you present another scoundrel!

Amid Trunks’ time-travelling encounters, we never observed his escape from an enemy who appreciates annihilating individuals and everything in locating since the Androids.

This implies inconvenience, folks.

Enter, Goku Black.

After the passing of Bulma, both Mai and Trunks ends up in an appalling circumstance and going up close and personal with another enemy. With a specific end goal to escape from Black, they could survive by utilising the “Time Machine” that Bulma constructed. So Trunks used the measure of vitality it had left and got away securely to the past. Presently, the vast majority of us thought there was some new an Android, or perhaps an even a higher risk in this new adventure.

That isn’t the situation.

Instead, we encounter a more underhanded, twisted Goku Black (Future Zamasu), who needs just to take out mortals and wreak destruction.

Goku vs. Hit

A Saiyan has no limit.

The Dragon Ball Super arrangement acquainted us with a radically new method of astounding characters. However, none of them has been more decided than Universe 6’s deadliest professional killer, Hit. As the competition between Universe 6 and 7 found some conclusion, Goku winds up going full scale and face with Hit’s “opportunity skip.” It was trying at first for him to make sense of Hit’s shortcoming and attempted to see the planning of his chance skip. These two wild contenders pushed each other as far as possible and did not frustrate.

The feature of the competition was the point at which the Kaio-Ken strategy returned, as Goku joined it with his Super Saiyan Blue frame to produce more speed and power. The x10 Kaio-ken Blue was excessively overpowering for Hit’s chance skip strategy, and the rate of Kaio-ken stunned both Piccolo and Vegeta. Vegeta knows excellent of what the Kaio-Ken strategy can do and saw it direct amid his fight with Goku years before the “Saiyan Saga.”

At last, Universe 7 won the competition, and Hit picked up Goku’s regard.

Vegeta’s Pride

This is the reason we cherish the “Saiyan Prince.”

After Universe 11’s Supreme Kai’s stunning disclosure that Toppo is a possibility to end up the following “God of Destruction,” Toppo demonstrated to us his mind-boggling God control and destroyed devastation on everybody in his way. He should merely surrender everything that was not critical to him to wind up a God. Offended by Toppo’s harsh words and energised by his want to secure his family, guarantee, and pride, Vegeta was all of a sudden restored and gave him a good beatdown. He thumped the sense out of Toppo and experienced numerous Hakai impacts in his way with his clench hand.

Try not to upset Vegeta.

At that point, he utilised a similar move that tore separated Majin Buu and himself years before Toppo and killed him simultaneously. Everybody, including me, was loaded with happiness when Vegeta survived the “Final Explosion” assault.

Who might have thought a move like that can outperform a God?

Conquering a God for what he holds valuable, was extraordinary on Vegeta’s part. The Saiyan ruler has unquestionably made some fantastic progress and is a glad father.

Approach to go, Vegeta!

Vegito Blue vs. Zamasu

Who might ever think we saw Vegito again?

This was a bonafide exemplary combination fight.

Understanding that the combination of Zamasu was excessively for them, both Goku and Vegeta wound up without any choices left. Be that as it may, the main alternative left is to the fusion. Presently, obviously, Vegeta disliked the thought, but instead, it was their exclusive any expectation of crushing the undying combination God. So with incredible influence from Goku, Vegeta at long last consented to meld with him for 60 minutes.

Enter. Vegito.

After Vegito’s terrific profit for the extra large screen, the Saiyan combination pair squandered no time and changed into Super Saiyan Blue to begin the battle. Not exclusively does Vegito have the power expected to at long last convey the colossal interminable combination God to his knees. However, we additionally get the unexpected treat of watching him go Super Saiyan Blue.

Indeed, it is a disgrace this was the combination’s last appearance. At last, the blend wore off in light of the “Final Kamehameha” utilisation, and both Saiyans chose to battle head-on.

Vegito rules!

Goku’s Mastered Ultra Instinct vs. Jiren: The Finale

Everything comes down to this.

The last fight to choose the destiny of the universe.

With alternate challengers still harmed, all that remaining parts in the “Tournament of Power” was the fight between Universe 7 and Universe 11’s most grounded warriors, Goku and Jiren.

The last battle was genuinely stunning!

With Jiren’s constant power of nature going up against Goku’s Mastered Ultra Instinct shape, these two titans kept on destroying each other, alongside what was left on the stage. This fight looked like the old Dragon Ball battles and demonstrated a couple of flashbacks of Goku going head to head against his past opponents.

What an ideal method to close this unusual arrangement known as Dragon Ball Super!

This was a battle worth viewing!
