Natalie Portman says AI could put her out of a job 'soon': 'There's a good chance'

Natalie Portman has some mixed feelings about artificial intelligence .In her new interview with Vanity Fair for its annual Hollywood issue, the "Star Wars" star was asked if she felt the technology was a threat to her livelihood."I don't know about 'threat' because it just feels like it's another form that's going to exist, which is always interesting for art, and who knows where it will take us," she said."But sure, there's a good chance I won't have a job soon," she added. WHAT IS ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI)? Portman had no specifics on dealing with the worry over AI, saying, "We'll figure it out when it happens, I guess."The "May December" star is among a growing number of stars expressing concern over AI and its impact on Hollywood.Earlier this month, "Silver Spoons" star Ricky Schroder spoke with Fox News Digital about his concerns over AI, particularly the growing threat of AI-generated pornography."I'm not an expert on AI, but I'm concerned about people that want to make pornographic images using AI that look like real people," he said. "I think that that's a dangerous road to go down." CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR THE ENTERTAINMENT NEWSLETTER Candace Cameron Bure , the chief content officer of Great American Family, told Fox News Digital she has "no intention" of using AI to make movies on the channel."I'll be keeping my eye on it for sure," she said this month. "I think it's something that's a little frightening to me ... at the core of it. However, we are using wonderful writers to write our movies, and I have no intention of using or touching AI when it comes to our filmmaking and writing scripts."Other stars are more curious about the technology.Last September, "America's Got Talent" judge Howie Mandel told Fox News Digital he's "embracing" the technology.

AI also divided Hollywood last year during the actors' and writers' strikes.After months of deadlock and negotiation, the WGA, the writers union, ended its strike in September with some regulations in place over AI's use in writing.According to WGA's website, "AI can't write or rewrite literary material, and AI-generated material will not be considered source material under the MBA, meaning that AI-generated material can't be used to undermine a writer's credit or separated rights."SAG-AFTRA, the actors' guild, ended its strike in November.According to a summary of the new contract on the union's website, employers must obtain "clear and conspicuous" consent from performers before creating "digital replicas" of them for a project and pay them for the time they would have otherwise worked in person.

'Rust' armorer's criminal trial begins with dramatic audio of shooting victims, photos of live ammo on set

Hannah Gutierrez-Reed's trial over the fatal "Rust" movie shooting began Thursday with dramatic audio of the shooting victims and accusations of "sloppy" safety protocols.Gutierrez-Reed worked as the armorer on the set of "Rust" when the fatal shooting occurred Oct. 21, 2021 at Bonanza Creek Ranch. Right before the shooting, actor Alec Baldwin had been practicing a cross draw when the gun he was holding fired, killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injuring director Joel Souza. The armorer, who was 24 at the time, was not in the church during the shooting.In bodycam footage shown in court Thursday, someone can be heard speaking to Hutchins, who had a chest wound from the shooting."Deep breath, Halyna," an unknown female voice said. "Deep breath. There you go, good girl." ALEC BALDWIN'S DEFENSE IN 'RUST' SHOOTING TRIAL COULD GET MAJOR BOOST FROM 'BOTCHED' PROSECUTION: EXPERT Souza, who was shot in the shoulder, can also be heard crying out in pain, "Ah f---, f---," in the background of the footage. Santa Fe County Sheriff's Department Lt. Tim Benavidez testified the yelling came from Souza.Jurors also saw footage of Gutierrez-Reed in the immediate aftermath of the shooting. The armorer spent most of her time inside Benavidez' patrol car after providing the officer with the gun that killed Hutchins."Oh my god. F---. Are they OK?" Gutierrez-Reed asked in the footage before telling another crew member, "I've already been yelled at ....""I'm so scared. Here's the box that I got [the ammo] out of," she told Benavidez while beginning to cry. ALEC BALDWIN LEFT OFF 'RUST' WITNESS LIST FOR ARMORER'S TRIAL OVER FATAL SHOOTING "Just take deep breaths and relax," the lieutenant told Gutierrez-Reed."Where the f--- are these entry wounds," Gutierrez-Reed asked at another point in the footage. "Does anyone know if she's OK?"She asked the officer if she was "arrested" as he instructed her into his patrol car, where she began to have a panic attack. Benavidez asked a medic to care for Gutierrez-Reed, who was crying hysterically and hyperventilating. LIKE WHAT YOU'RE READING? CLICK HERE FOR MORE ENTERTAINMENT NEWS In opening statements, prosecutors accused the armorer of being "unprofessional and sloppy" and "negligent" on the Western film set, directly causing the death of Hutchins. Special prosecutor Jason Lewis showed a photograph of Gutierrez-Reed holding a gun on set and claimed live rounds could be spotted in the corner of the photo. The armorer is seemingly unaware that the rounds are live ammo."We found a photograph where there was one occasion where a live round was sitting right in Ms. Gutierrez's lap, and she failed to identify it," Lewis told the jury.The prosecution also claimed Gutierrez-Reed was the crew member who brought the live ammo to the set in the first place, an issue that has long plagued the two-year investigation."The box of dummies [Gutierrez-Reed] was pulling from on the 21st is identical to the box of dummies that her father had at home," Lewis said in court. "So, we believe this is more evidence that this box of dummies with the live round in it came from the defendant." CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR THE ENTERTAINMENT NEWSLETTER Gutierrez-Reed's defense blamed Baldwin and the production company behind "Rust" for the fatal shooting and that his client has been used as a "scapegoat.""You will hear that Hollywood actors are not allowed to point guns, real guns at other actors or crew," Jason Bowles told the jury. "It's ... like every other safety with guns in any other place in society. You learn these rules and go into the classes. You learn these rules if you've ever owned a gun. Rule No. 1: Never point a firearm at somebody unless you intend to shoot them. And that rule was broken." WATCH: 'RUST' MOVIE VIDEO SHOWS ALEC BALDWIN PRACTICING CROSS DRAW BEFORE HALYNA HUTCHINS SHOOTING Bowles also pointed out that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) concluded there were "several safety errors" on the "rushed set.""When the state talks about Ms. Gutierrez-Reed being negligent, what really happened?" the lawyer said. "Production was negligent ... and put her in that position. They put her in the position of having two jobs - a props assistant and an armorer - and expected a 24-year-old, under really tough conditions, to keep up with everything that was going on."Gutierrez-Reed appeared in court Thursday for the second day of her involuntary manslaughter trial. The armorer has also been charged with evidence tampering after allegedly handing off a bag of cocaine on the day of the shooting. Jury selection began Wednesday and took a full day. Out of 70 possible jurors, seven men and five women were selected.Baldwin has also been charged with involuntary manslaughter. The actor's trial date has not been set.On Thursday, the family of late cinematographer Halyna Hutchins earned a legal victory when Baldwin lost his bid to dismiss a wrongful death lawsuit brought by her family."Today is a win for Halyna's family. At today's hearing in our civil case, the court affirmed the obvious - that grieving families have a right to pursue loss of consortium damages related to the death of their loved one under New Mexico law - which will be enforced in California courts against Baldwin and "Rust" producers," Gloria Allred said in a statement provided to Fox News Digital. "Based on today's ruling, we embrace the opportunity to amend our complaint to provide more facts regarding the truth, that the relationships between Halyna and her family have always been the kind of sufficiently close and mutually beneficial relationships recognized under the law of New Mexico."

"In some ways - this is horrible to say - it's a very selfish condition to have. Not to insult other people with anxiety - I still have it - but it's because you're thinking about yourself a lot.

'Top Gun' actor Barry Tubb sues Paramount Pictures for using his image in sequel

Barry Tubb appeared in the 1986 blockbuster "Top Gun," but he didn't act in the 2022 sequel, "Top Gun: Maverick." Now, Tubb is suing Paramount Pictures, the production company behind both films, for using a behind-the-scenes image of him from the first film in the later release. According to court documents obtained by Fox News Digital, Tubb is seeking unspecified damages for the unauthorized use of his likeness.In the case, filed Wednesday, Tubb's lawyers said that when the actor played the role of Lt. j.g. Henry "Wolfman" Ruth in "Top Gun," he signed a contract agreeing for his likeness to be used only in the original film. 'TOP GUN: MAVERICK' STAR TOM CRUISE ADMITS HE 'CRIED' OVER 'EMOTIONAL' REUNION WITH CO-STAR VAL KILMER At the time, " movie sequels were virtually nonexistent," so the possibility of expanding the contract to include the use of his image in any future projects wasn't discussed. Despite that fact, the documents state Paramount used the image "without seeking his permission and without compensation."The image in question is a photo of the fictional Top Gun Class of 1986, along with U.S. Navy pilots who acted as consultants during filming. It was altered to be used in the movie. 'TOP GUN: MAVERICK' PRODUCER JERRY BRUCKHEIMER SAYS 'NOBODY WORKS HARDER' THAN TOM CRUISE In the scene in "Top Gun: Maverick," the camera zooms in on the photo to show Tubb with Tom Cruise , Val Kilmer and Anthony Edwards, the other principal members of the cast. According to Tubb's case, his likeness used in that scene "is essential in a way that is not incidental."The argument is that Paramount used Tubb's image for commercial gain - the documents note that "Top Gun: Maverick" was massively successful at the box office - without asking him or offering him compensation. His legal team also argues that his right to privacy was violated. LIKE WHAT YOU'RE READING? CLICK HERE FOR MORE ENTERTAINMENT NEWS The court documents claim that a third party doesn't own the copyright to the photo used in the film, but that Tubb does own his own image. Still, Paramount used it "for purely selfserving commercial purposes and their own business interests." The documents also call the company "an unapologetic, chronic, and habitual infringer." CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR THE ENTERTAINMENT NEWSLETTER It's also suggested that Paramount "upon information and belief" reached out to other actors for permission for "similar appearances" in the movie.Tubb wants the amount of the damages to be determined in court, but his lawyers state that the amount shouldn't be anything less than $75,000. CLICK HERE TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP Paramount Pictures didn't immediately return Fox News Digital's request for comment. Tubb's lawyers shared that the actor isn't interested in making a public statement, but, "He believes the lawsuit and the exhibits speak for him. He's disappointed that it had to come to this, but trusts that the legal process will produce a just result."

Eagles' manager argues stolen 'Hotel California' lyric pages swiped by author writing about band's breakup

Irving Azoff, the Eagles' longtime manager, on Wednesday testified in a Manhattan court that handwritten "Hotel California" lyric pages were initially "stolen" by Ed Sanders.Sanders, a nonfiction writer, was tasked with writing a biography about the band in the '70s, and was given unfettered access to the group and a slew of their manuscripts. The book was never published, as Azoff claimed both Eagles co-founders Don Henley and the late Glenn Frey were unhappy with Sanders' emphasis on the band's split in the early '80s.Azoff, a longtime music industry titan, admitted that Henley and Frey disliked the book's direction, and that "for me personally, all the stuff about the Eagles' breakup was unacceptable," according to The Associated Press.Henley is expected to take the stand and testify against Glenn Horowitz, Craig Inciardi and Edward Kosinski, who were charged with conspiracy in the fourth degree for allegedly attempting to sell manuscripts, including "developmental lyrics to the Eagles song 'Hotel California,'" according to the original indictment filed by the New York District Attorney's Office in 2022. EAGLES' 'HOTEL CALIFORNIA' CRIMINAL TRIAL OVER STOLEN LYRIC PAGES IS 'ABOUT THE NAMES INVOLVED': 'A GOLD MINE' The manuscripts are collectively valued at over $1 million, according to the district attorney.Defense lawyers claim Henley gave away the documents."They have accused three innocent men of a crime that never occurred," Inciardi's lawyer, Stacey Richman, told Judge Curtis Farber during opening statements."All these lyrics are very personal to him, they're a part of musical history, and it was simply unacceptable to him that they be stolen by anyone else," Azoff testified according to the AP. He admitted that he had never known Henley to give away any of his work, including most of the lyrics he created with Frey. 3 CHARGED WITH HAVING EAGLES' DON HENLEY'S STOLEN HANDWRITTEN NOTES AFTER ROCK LEGEND HIMSELF GOT INVOLVED: DA When the biography didn't come to fruition by 1982, Azoff remembered Sanders requesting "a substantial amount of money," and said Sanders had "behaved with great reserve" by not giving the story about the Eagles' split to a magazine."He had inside knowledge," Azoff said, adding that Frey and Henley "didn't want some ugly story of the breakup of the Eagles to be published" as they were both pursuing solo careers. They ended up paying Sanders roughly $75,000 so that he could find a new publisher. Sanders later sold the handwritten work to Horowitz, a rare-book dealer, for $50,000.Horowitz then sold pages to Inciardi, a former Rock & Roll Hall of Fame curator, and memorabilia collector Kosinski. Inciardi and Kosinski attempted to sell pages of the lyrics through Kosinski's company, Gotta Have Rock and Roll, but were caught by Henley in 2012. LIKE WHAT YOU'RE READING? CLICK HERE FOR MORE ENTERTAINMENT NEWS Henley then purchased the "original handwritten lyrics for the Eagles song 'Hotel California' written in Don Henley's hand," for $8,500 on April 25, 2012, according to the indictment.Two years later, Koskinski attempted to contact Sotheby's and sell "Eagles handwritten lyrics in Don Hendleys [sic] hand for New Kid In Town." Shortly after, Inciardi sent a similar email notifying the auction house that developmental lyrics for "Life in the Fast Lane" were also available for sale. CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR THE ENTERTAINMENT NEWSLETTER "When Don Henley learned that Inciardi and Kosinski were trying to sell portions of the manuscripts, he filed police reports, told the defendants that the materials were stolen, and demanded the return of his property," Manhattan District Attorney Alvin L. Bragg Jr. said in a statement released with the charges in 2022. "Rather than making any effort to ensure they actually had rightful ownership, the defendants responded by engaging in a years-long campaign to prevent Henley from recovering the manuscripts."Throughout 2015, Kosinski and Inciardi continued their attempts to sell 13 pages of developmental lyrics. In December 2016, the DA's office executed search warrants and retrieved Henley's stolen manuscripts from both Sotheby's and Kosinski's New Jersey residence, according to the DA. "Shortly thereafter, Horowitz attempted to exploit the recent death of founding Eagles member Glenn Frey to prevent criminal prosecution; he produced a new false statement of provenance, this time claiming that the materials originated from the now-deceased Frey," the DA shared in a statement. "In one email message, Horowitz observed that '[Frey] alas, is dead and identifying him as the source would make this go away once and for all.'"Representatives for Horowitz, Inciardi, Kosinski and Henley did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital's request for comment.

A judge dismissed a sexual assault lawsuit brought against musician Steven Tyler on Wednesday.Jeanne Bellino sued the Aerosmith frontman in New York court alleging the rock star groped her in a phone booth without her consent when she was 17 years old in 1975. U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan ruled Bellino had waited too long to file her lawsuit against Tyler, Fox News Digital can confirm.Kaplan noted that Tyler's conduct didn't amount to "serious risk of physical injury," which would have allowed Bellino to sue using the two-year window given by the Gender Motivated Violence Act, the judge wrote.

Miss America says Air Force service is life-changing: 'It's all been just wonderful'

Joining the Air Force was a no-brainer for this beauty queen.Madison Marsh, a second lieutenant in the Air Force, is the first active-duty Air Force officer to be crowned Miss America. The 22-year-old succeeds Wisconsin's Grace Stanke, who was the 2023 Miss America."I wanted to be an astronaut for about eight years until a year or two ago," Marsh told Fox News Digital. "But then I discovered the Air Force Academy, and it immediately sparked my interest. Obviously, I don't want to be an astronaut anymore." AIR FORCE OFFICER MADISON MARSH WINS 2024 MISS AMERICA COMPETITION: 'YOU CAN ACHIEVE ANYTHING' "When it comes to the Air Force, there's the camaraderie, the family that is created out of joining the armed forces," she shared. "It's phenomenal. It's something that I didn't realize I was yearning for. I now have people all across the nation that I could call and would have my back just because of being in the military.""My path has changed significantly over the past several years - but it's all been just wonderful," Marsh added.Marsh, who was crowned as 2024 Miss America, is also a master's student at the Harvard Kennedy School's public policy program. She won the title of Miss Colorado last year.Marsh said she's hoping to inspire other women in the armed forces to fly sky-high."I love to think about all the women who have come before me," she said. "I'm not the first person in the military to do something like this. I think about all the first women to join the Air Force, to fly planes, to fly in combat, to go to the Air Force Academy, who've taken chances. Now, I'm lucky to be a very small part of this history, to show other young women that you really can do anything.""Even if you don't want to join the military, you can define those stereotypes, those boxes you put yourself in," Marsh said. "You can show the world what you're passionate about and put everything else aside. There were times when the stereotype of a military woman who competes in pageants conflicted. Now, I'm able to break both of those stereotypes simultaneously. I hope to prove to all young women that you really can do whatever you want." CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR THE ENTERTAINMENT NEWSLETTER There were 51 contestants who represented the U.S. and the District of Columbia, People magazine reported. According to the outlet, preliminary judges chose 10 contestants to enter the pageant, while the public voted for one, resulting in 11 semifinalists.The Air Force took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to celebrate Marsh's win."Congratulations to our very own #Airman, 2nd Lt. Madison Marsh, aka Miss Colorado - who was just crowned @MissAmerica 2024!," they wrote. "Marsh is the first active duty servicemember to ever win the title. #AimHigh."Marsh said the Air Force hasn't stopped congratulating her."They've been so excited and supportive," she said. "One of my favorite parts of winning was having all of these military women reach out to me and say, 'Now we feel more comfortable about displaying how you can be feminine and in uniform and still be taken seriously.' That meant the world to me. It's something that we might still struggle with today, but I'm really lucky we can now all be a part of it together and take down those stereotypes."During the competition, the finalists had to speak about their goals as Miss America. Marsh opened up about her late mother, who died from pancreatic cancer in 2018 at age 41. She told Fox News Digital that meeting the many people who were by her mother's side made her more proud than ever to be an American."As a family, we had to watch her go through chemotherapy ," she said. "But we also watched her meet all of these wonderful people - the doctors, the nurses - who did all they could to help elongate her life, so we could be with her a little longer. Representing the Americans who want to help our people is extremely important to me.""I witnessed how pancreatic cancer can take your life, no matter how healthy you are, no matter how many amazing doctors you have in your corner," she said. "Something has to change. We are severely underfunding pancreatic cancer research. ... We have one of the lowest survival rates and something more needs to be done. We need better legislation to raise money. We need better legislation to deliver these products to patients across the nation. It's expensive to even get tested for pancreatic cancer. That's another barrier patients have to deal with. ... My mother's cancer went from stage 1 to stage 4 within three weeks. We need to give our patients a fighting chance. And that's what I'm going to fight for."The Miss America semifinalists took part in four rounds of competitions, which included a fitness runway walk. Marsh noted that the Air Force gave her the confidence to take on that challenge."Things got tough for me at the Air Force Academy," Marsh said. "I was grieving the loss of my mom while also being in a very strict military environment. But I started finding my confidence at the gym and really pouring into my body. Being healthy is not just a look, it's also a lifestyle. And I truly believe good health is what gave my mother a better fighting chance. I want to be here to play with my kids, see all these wonderful changes in the world and live a long life.""I try to go to the gym about five days a week," she said. "I love lifting weights. That's my favorite part, building muscle. ... My mother was a big runner, so I'm trying to get into that to get my body moving. If I only have 20 minutes for a workout, I'll just go for a run. I also love yoga. It's my rest and rejuvenation day just to be at peace, not be on my phone, just focus on how my body feels at that very moment."Marsh said that during her reign, she hopes to be an inspiration to women across the country. LIKE WHAT YOU'RE READING? CLICK HERE FOR MORE ENTERTAINMENT NEWS "For Miss America, I had my hair and makeup done, but that's not the most important part of the pageant," she said. "Miss America is one of the largest providers of scholarships for women. I got over $70,000 in educational scholarships. That can be life-changing for so many women. ... And to me, that's the most beautiful part of the organization.""It's not all about beauty here," she continued. "The most important part is having a passion to serve, the passion to lead in your community or your profession, learning the ability to speak eloquently about the things you care about. This is what Miss America is all about. ... And I'm ready for it."

'NYPD Blue' star Ricky Schroder leans on faith in society that tells 'people they are gods'

Ricky Schroder opened up about how he leans on his faith to overcome challenging times in life.During an interview with Fox News Digital, the 53-year-old actor,  who recently launched the patriotic film nonprofit Reel American Heroes Foundation, explained that he has made prayer an important part of his daily routine. "I pray a lot," Schroder said. "I haven't always prayed a lot, but I do now. And so I pray multiple times a day just to stay connected, to my creator, to my God."
He continued, "We live in a society that wants to teach people they are gods or that they're in charge. But when you submit yourself to the true power of God, and keep submitting yourself, it gets easier."The "NYPD Blue" actor, who is a Christian, also emphasized the power of prayer while sharing his thoughts on the three simple ways that people can fight for their daily freedoms."Think for yourself," Schroder said. "Don't let other people think for you. You know, do your own research. Do your own critical analysis. Don't trust what people just say." WATCH: Ricky Schroder shares how he leans on his faith to overcome challenging times He continued, "Pray. If you believe in the Lord, pray because he gives you clarity.""And, I guess just take care of yourself," Schroder added. "Put yourself at the top of the list so your physical, emotional, and spiritual kind of - you're prepared to face the world. The world can be a challenging, tough place."The New York native started his career as a child actor in the 1979 movie, "The Champ." Schroder landed his breakthrough role as T.J. Flynn in the movie at the age of 7 and turned 8 during filming. In 1980, Schroder became the youngest Golden Globe winner in history when he received the new actor award for his performance in "The Champ." During his interview with Fox News Digital, Schroder reflected on the advice that he would give his younger self after embarking on a career in Hollywood when he was a child and continuing to act as an adult."Don't lose sight of the Lord," the "Silver Spoons" star said. "Because in Hollywood, it's easy to lose sight of the Lord there."He continued, "You get tempted by so many things, and temptation can just kind of get you off track. And so, I would say if I could speak to my younger self, it'd be, 'Read your Bible more.'""But I never fit in Hollywood," he admitted. "It was never sort of a desire of mine, let's say. I was put into 'The Champ' when I was 7 years old and turned 8, making 'The Champ.' And so it's been an interesting path to go down - when you didn't make those choices originally.""Other people made choices for you and put you on a track," Schroder added. "But today I make my own choices. And so, that's why I sort of decided to leave Hollywood, moved back to Colorado, and I still want to tell stories. But a different forum, a different platform."

"I can't really give them much advice on modeling except keep your clothes on. But it's a tough time out there for our children."He continued, "There are a lot of influences on them. And so my advice to them is - as a father - to find a good man that's honest and won't lie to you and only has eyes for you, and you only have eyes for him and build a life together and have common goals.""Too much today you see couples with separate goals," Schroder added. "He has his. She has hers, but they don't have common goals. And so I tell my daughters things like that."During his interview with Fox News Digital, Schroder also discussed the Reel American Heroes Foundation, which he launched last month. The organization produces films, documentaries and television series that promote patriotic and traditional values. LIKE WHAT YOU'RE READING?

"CPR is dedicated to safeguarding individuals, particularly minors, from the potential harms associated with unrestricted access to explicit material."Schroder told Fox News Digital that Reel American Heroes Foundation is developing projects to advance the goals of the Council on Pornography Reform and currently has a documentary titled "Erotic Erosion" in the works.

"When internet pornography first came into the world, it was in the .xxx URL, and for various reasons, they shut down the .xxx URL, and they moved it all into the .com world. And so one of our goals at the Council on Pornography Reform is to move all adult content back into the .xxx URL, where it's easier to control it."Schroder explained that the Reel American Heroes Foundation is also seeking submissions of real-life heroes' stories for future projects."We're hoping to get your stories," he said. "We are hoping other people will contribute and send us stories. And we can aggregate these stories and restart reprogramming America away from the DEI programming - diversity, equity and inclusion - to the real principles and values that built this great nation."

John Travolta's sister on the moment she knew he'd be a star: 'He was breathtaking'

Ellen Travolta, the sitcom star and older sister of John Travolta , always suspected that her brother was going places."I think I knew he was a good actor," the "Happy Days" actress told Fox News Digital. "He was 12 ... I came home and my mom said, 'We're going down to this little tiny theater.' We went down, and I thought, 'Boy, this kid is good.' And then I was gone. I was on the road. Then I got married. He was always working. We went back and saw him on Broadway playing Doody in 'Grease.' And then when 'Kotter' came out, he was adorable and funny.

"I mean, that may have been said by his managers. ... [But] when 'Saturday Night Fever' hit with the Bee Gees songs and all that, oh my God. He'd been around a few years, but with 'Saturday Night Fever,' that's when he got nominated for his first Academy Award. And he was breathtaking. It was this little brother of mine. And he was a major, major star."Travolta, who is one of six siblings, has led a decades-long career in Hollywood.She recently made a guest appearance on Season 2 of Pure Flix's "Going Home." The show chronicles the lives of nurses who help guide patients in hospice."One of the real gifts of a show like 'Going Home' is to work with exceptional and experienced guest stars each week," the show's creator and director, Dan Merchant, told Fox News Digital in a statement. "Ellen is such a pro and such a delight to be with. It was wonderful to see her connect and flow with the young co-stars in her scenes, Cozi Zuehlsdorf and Cayden Boyd."Travolta said that providing family-friendly programming has been crucial to her as an actress."My career was always about family shows, " she said. "We always had kids in them, so we were always careful. The scripts, everything I did was appropriate. I love being able to discuss good, healthy, funny and important topics that need to be discussed, issues that need to be handled, anything that has a family component with a solution that's handled well. I love that.""My character, Ida [in 'Going Home'], has a sense of humor," she said. "When people think of hospice, they think of dreadful death, unfinished business. Well, Ida has a grandson that she raised ... she meets this lovely nurse who takes care of her. And she decides right away that she's going to fix her up with the [grandson] before she passes, so he'll have somebody. Lo and behold, they do like each other. And the three of them spent time together. ... And then she was ready to leave. She goes peacefully. Now, this isn't true for all people, but it can be."Travolta said the storyline hit close to home.

"Finally, the nurse said, 'He doesn't want to miss out on this. You really should book it so that it can be a little quiet.' I stayed. ... He was gone in five minutes. He really did want to stick around. He knew it was time. But we told stories and we laughed. We kept him a little longer than he should have, but death doesn't always have to be sad all the time. It can be peaceful and loving."Over the years, Travolta has maintained a close-knit bond with her family, including John, 70. She described how it was her "baby brother" who helped her land a surprising role in the 1978 film "Grease.""I was on the Paramount lot filming something, and I came by to say hi to him on set," she recalled. "He said, 'Hey Ellen, do you want to be in the movie?' Then he turned to [the filmmakers] and said, 'Can my sister be in this?' They said, 'Well, OK.' And I said, 'If I can wear one of those cute waitress outfits, I'll do it.' I think I worked just a day and had a few lines. But I collected residuals for almost 50 years."Travolta left with a check and a new pal - her brother's co-star, Olivia Newton-John ."She was a very dear friend of John's," said Travolta about the late singer. "She was such a lovely woman. I can't emphasize that enough. She was as lovely as her voice."Travolta has made guest appearances in numerous hit TV shows, including "One Day at a Time," "CHiPs," and "All in the Family," just to name a few. Travolta noted that she never gave her brother pointers on becoming an actor."He said he watched me and learned," she chuckled. "He said, 'Oh Ellen, I figured that's how you do it.' I never said anything to him. He was with me on the road. He was my nanny. He took care of my little boy when he was between 11 [and] 14. He would travel with me, and he came to see all the shows that I did. And he stayed with me. We may have been 15 years apart, but we were always great friends. We talked about that the other day. We were saying, 'It's just this bond that we have, it's there.' We're appreciative of one another and respectful."Travolta said one of her favorite memories was appearing in "Happy Days." She went on to make her mark in the spin-off "Joanie Loves Chachi.""I've known Scotty since he was about 12," she said about co-star Scott Baio. "His mother was one of my best friends. I watched him grow up. But the thing that really impressed me the most about Scotty is that he was such a great team player, especially at such a young age. That impressed and surprised me. He was absolutely wonderful. If you wanted to try something, he was all for it. If it meant him not getting a laugh and you got a laugh instead, he would always go for that. Whatever would make the show even better, he would do. I really respected him for that."Travolta said she's grateful to now be a part of "Going Home," which discusses death in "a respectful and loving manner." She's hopeful more networks and streaming giants will consider offering more family-friendly programming that focuses on heartfelt storylines."The work that's being done on television today and Netflix is quite extraordinary for the production value," she said. "It's outstanding. However, the subject matter sometimes misses me. ... We could really use more stories that are heartwarming, encouraging and uplifting. ... They just don't do them anymore, or at least, not as much. There's a certain lightness that is missing from movies these days. All the blowing up and explosions, it just gets so old. As for the cartoons, I'm old. I don't care for them. I think we could all use some positive, uplifting entertainment."Today, Travolta has zero plans to slow down. And she's always looking for the next great story to tell. LIKE WHAT YOU'RE READING? CLICK HERE FOR MORE ENTERTAINMENT NEWS "I'll be 85 in October," she said.

APP USERS CLICK HERE TO VIEW POST  "I've had a 'bad girl' narrative on my back my whole life," she said. "I thought I deserved bad things. Now I'm raising two daughters. I can't do that to myself anymore. Kind of like the drinking - I'm picking off things one at a time, going, "I can't carry you anymore. You aren't good for me."Barrymore continued, "The personal part of me has been the ultimate work in progress. The professional in me feels really brave and never entitled. Always so privileged and grateful. I've lost everything. I've got it back. I've lost it again. Got it back. So I don't assume anything stays.""I know not to take anything for granted," she added. "Whatever difficult times I've gone through professionally, I believed I could rewrite things. Then in my personal life, I was a failure and a broken person. I can't f------ believe I'm alive sometimes.""And it's the first time in my life, going on 49, that [the personal and professional] are complementing each other. Time is the greatest asset we have - it allows things to get better, to shift, to have light come into a dark space. It has taken my whole life to get here, but I'm so happy to be out of the jail in my mind."After landing her breakthrough role in "E.T.," Barrymore became a child star, but she was plagued with substance abuse problems from an early age. Due to her sudden fame, Barrymore's troubled childhood and hard partying early teenage years played out in the glare of the media spotlight.When Barrymore was 13, her mother, Jaid Barrymore, placed her in rehab.

It makes you feel like an immortal that can handle anything.""And then the next day you are living in that chemical aftermath and you feel worse," she added. "It wasn't a new concept to me; it was something I knew my whole life did not work for me. I kept saying, "I'll master this one day." And sometimes it's as simple as just getting so sick of yourself wanting to do something for the majority of your life, and one day, it finally clicks.""The Drew Barrymore Show" host also said that she doesn't spend time dwelling on regrets and has learned to celebrate her past."I've had great relationships, most of whom I'm still really good friends with," Barrymore said. "[The secret to that is] enjoying your history and never allowing yourself to be with someone who's going to beat you up about it. That's so toxic."She continued, "I love my crazy youth. Part of why I'm single now is because I had so much fun. Part of why I don't miss drinking is because I did." "I'm glad I had a nudist, exhibitionist, wildflower, wild-child, little wood nymph time. I'm glad I partied. I'm glad I was wild with boys. I'm glad I was wild in every way, shape and form because it led to my contentedness with a quiet life now. And it was fun. I'm not apologetic. I'm not mad at myself about it."

'Ordinary Angels' star Hilary Swank lived on streets of LA in her car before big break
