‘The Harder They Fall’ Star Edi Gathegi’s Battle to Not Be Just Another Dead Black Guy in a Movie
NetflixVirtually every actor, at some point, has to face their death on screen or on stage. There are some, like Sean Bean, whose very presence conjures a knowing anticipation of their eventual fall. Others, like the multitude of Black characters in horror films, speak to the history of racist violence against Black people both within and outside Hollywood, where actors big and small, owing to a dearth of opportunities, are compelled to jump on stories that recognize them as props and not people.Edi Gathegi knows a little bit about death on screen. He’s died a lot. Perhaps more than the average actor might. From The Twilight Saga to X-Men: First Class, the Kenyan-American actor reckoned with demise in ways that are both frustrating and illuminating.“There’s almost a spiritual element to dying on screen,” he tells the Daily Beast. “You have to get to a space mentally where life leaves you over and over again.” And while that “meditation,” as he calls it, is one that most actors have to deal with, Gathegi also knows that his deaths haven’t always meant much. During his younger years, scrapping for work meant that a gig was a gig; an opportunity to put food on the table and hopefully be considered for more work. But those times are changing and he’s become more selective about how his characters’ death might contribute or take away from any one story.Read more at The Daily Beast.

What ‘House of Gucci’ Left Out About Patrizia Reggiani’s Wild Life, From Ferrets and Parrots to Prison
AlamyROME—In many ways, the real story of Patrizia Reggiani, played by Lady Gaga in House of Gucci, begins where the film ends. The once grande dame of Milan high society turned murderess spent 18 years in San Vittore prison—which was once occupied by German Nazis—which she preferred to call “San Vittore residence.” In various interviews after her incarceration, she referred to her time there as both “relaxing” and “horrible,” during which she “slept a lot.”But a prison guard who worked in the women’s wing when she was there says it wasn’t always easy for the diva. She enjoyed certain privileges, including being allowed to keep an emotional support ferret named Bambi in her cell. The animal sadly died when another prisoner sat on it about halfway through her sentence. She spent her recreational time getting sun in the prison yard as if it were a private beach club she was accustomed to. The guard, who is not authorized to speak due to privacy issues, told The Daily Beast that she used her fame—and infamy—to get other inmates to do things for her and to bribe certain guards. “She was Lady Gucci in prison, too,” she said. “She never let anyone forget who she was.”Her cell was filled with plants and photos and she had expensive linens brought in for her single cot. In 2016, she told The Guardian that she preferred not to talk about it: “It’s all a bad dream to me.”Read more at The Daily Beast.

Using natural hemp ropes to recreate a scene from Michelangelo’s well-known fresco painting, The Creation of Adam, Marceline pondered every reaction her partner made, as the woman hung in midair.Her partner’s arm stretched out to reach something powerful yet invisible. Smiling, with her eyes closed, she looked totally absorbed.“Something I really adore is just the feeling of rope flowing through my hands,” Marceline said, gesturing to mimic the rope moving. “You get into a flow state.”Read more at The Daily Beast.

‘Tiger King’ Joe Exotic Turns on Trump and Opens Up About Child Sexual Abuse in New Memoir
Sue Ogrocki/APWe’re nearing the two-year mark since the world was first introduced to the eccentric, flashy, and boisterous criminal that is Joe Exotic through the sensation that was Netflix’s Tiger King.Premiering at the start of the pandemic in 2020, viewers were immediately sucked into the former Oklahoma zookeeper’s bonkers world, which was filled with mistreated big cats, wheeling and dealing, throuple relationships, misfits working at a drug-infested zoo, shady characters of the exotic animal world, and perhaps most riveting: a vendetta against Carole Baskin.Despite his knack for spinning wild stories bursting with outlandish claims and his erratic yet charismatic personality, the reality star (real name Joseph Maldonado-Passage) is by no stretch of the imagination a saintly character.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Russia’s Cold War With Ukraine Is About To Heat Up
Yuriy Dyachyshyn/AFP via GettyThe Russo-Ukrainian war is in the news again. Not content with its annexation of Crimea — when is an aggressively expansive imperialist country ever content with Crimea once it’s got it in the pocket? — Russia has amassed an invasion-sized force at the border of Ukraine, and is busily mobilizing reservists sufficient to provide an occupation force.The usual pundit voices can be heard discussing the geopolitical implications of the buildup, sifting through tea leaves and undisclosed sources to explain why it’s just another training exercise (Russia’s official explanation), or how Putin and Russia have been provoked by the aggressive expansion of NATO westward, and why the Budapest Memorandum wasn’t legally binding, or how Ukraine has always been Russian anyway, so why shouldn’t they just snap it up and something about spheres of influence.The effect—perhaps the purpose— of all these cynical and wearisome discussions is that Americans and others with a modicum of interest in the subject throw up their hands in frustration, and say “Let it be.”Read more at The Daily Beast.

Former Hospice Is Venice’s Newest Five-Star Hotel
Ca' di DioIf there’s one thing that stands out amidst the ornate facades of Venice’s edifices it’s something new. The sea and its air are cruel neighbors for these ancient buildings—cracked, chipped, peeling, and even crumbling, such is the state of many a palazzo. And so even though the exterior of Ca’ di Dio, Venice’s newest five-star hotel, is restrained relative to its neighbors, its recent immaculate restoration has left it with a spotless facade ensuring it stands out on the lagoon.It is also the latest selection for our series on exciting new hotels, The New Room with a View.Located five bridges west of the Palazzo Ducale, Ca’ di Dio is housed in a large stuccoed building with unobstructed views out over the lagoon to Isola di San Giorgio Maggiore and its exquisite church designed by Palladio. On an evening with a particularly fiery sunset, the view from the hotel is unmistakable for fans of Monet’s paintings of the island at dusk.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Harvard Admissions Data Shows That America Loves Affirmative Action—for Whites
Darren McCollester/Newsmakers/GettyAmerica’s most elite colleges and universities really don’t want the public to take a peek behind the curtain and get a better understanding of who gets admitted and why. And it’s not for the reasons you might think.The urban legend endures that any Latino or African-American who applies to one of these ultra-selective schools can write their own ticket. But the truth is, the people who get the lion’s share of those tickets, who issue the tickets, and who, in fact, run the ticket booth are white.The real pigs at the trough are white people who have connections, make donations or otherwise encourage wealthy alumni boosters to send more checks.
