Amanda Peet Says She Got Hate Mail For Supporting Vaccinations

The 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - Arrivals

Vaccinations have been a hot topic, but even more-so since the measles cases increased to over 600 last year.  One person who has been outspoken about it since becoming a mom herself is actress Amanda Peet.

In a new interview with Access Hollywood she said:

 “I think I’m just a concerned mom, and now that I have a newborn who’s too young to be vaccinated, it really hit home for me. I think we’ve just kind of lost our sense of neighborliness. Even if it’s not your child, your neighbor could have an infant at home or somebody whose immunity is compromised. Shouldn’t we all be in this together?”

“It’s really scary.  What’s it going to take before we all get in this together? Are we going to see infant mortality rates? Because that would be infuriating and so tragic.”
Amanda says she’s been a target of hate mail from anti-vaxxers.

“I got tons of hate mail because I started working for Every Child By Two a couple years ago at the height of the vaccine controversy.  It’s hard to communicate science.”

Do you agree with Amanda?  Where do you stand on the vaccination debate?

So Sad! Leonard Nimoy Has Died

Leonard Nimoy Passes Away (1931-2015)  **FILE PHOTOS**

Star Trek fans are in mourning today as the sad news spreads that beloved actor Leonard Nimoy has died at 83 years old!

Leonard, aka Mr. Spock, had been hospitalized earlier this week with chest pains but nothing more was shared until this afternoon when his family confirmed that he has passed away.   His death was caused by his previously diagnosed  COPD (aka chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).  Leonard shared his diagnosis last year, revealing that he had quit smoking 30 years ago but it wasn’t soon enough.

Our hearts go out to his family and his fans around the world.  RIP Spock!

Update – Leonard’s Star Trek co-stars shared their heartfelt thoughts on his passing.  William Shatner shared, “I loved him like a brother. We will all miss his humor, this talent, and his capacity to love.”  and George Takei said, “Today, the world lost a great man, and I lost a great friend. We return you now to the stars.”

Lily James Prepped for her Role of Cinderella by Reading Gandhi

"Cinderella" - Milan Photocall

Downton Abbey beauty, Lily James, will be playing the role of Ella or Cinderella, in the upcoming Disney film, which will be released in March.  James took the role very seriously, and was inspired by Ella’s pure and positive spirit despite her difficult circumstances.  She explains how she prepared for the role:

“I started taking horse riding lessons six weeks before shooting began, and I tried to start living healthily, doing a lot of yoga to try and get the kind of posture and grace and elegance that Ella would have had.

“I also did a lot of research on spirituality and read up on people like Gandhi who have been able to deal with life in a way that I knew I never could. But I wanted to make Ella seem as real as possible and didn’t want to just play that state.”

The film, directed by Kenneth Branagh, has an amazing cast that includes Helena Bonham Carter as the fairy godmother, Cate Blanchett as the wicked stepmother, and Agent Carter star, Hayley Attwell as Cinderella’s mother.  All the early reviews of the film are glowing, despite James’ scandalously tiny waist, and I can’t wait to take my daughter next month!
