Hollywood’s Spare Room Launches Cocktail Catering Program

Ireland Baldwin compares Hollywood stars to Canterbury Tales characters while doing her high school homework

She’s “fat,” and she’ll risk losing future opportunities if she doesn’t first “lose a certain amount of weight.” Um, right. “It was just the kind of shit that actresses have to go through,” Jennifer said — that is, the shit of an industry that’s exceptional at finding fault where there is none. “They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet,” she added. In reality, it’s early in JLaw’s career, and “the most talented young actress in America,” according to Rolling Stone, has as much professional success as she has men drooling over her — without having to diet — not to mention all the women who look up to her and want to be her BFF. Truth is, she looks like a woman who’s conscious of her health and feels good in her own skin. Look at her! Exactly where could she shed the pounds? Her face is filled with color and she carries herself with a confidence that rises well above Hollywood’s weight obession. She is a mega babe! “If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet,’ I’m like, ‘You can go fuck yourself,'” she summed up. That’s the vibrant, foulmouthed warrior we know and love. Better than beautiful, Jennifer is realistic in both image and attitude.

(The Spare Room) Also By Jessica Gelt October 3, 2013, 10:30 a.m. The Spare Room in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel has long had a reputation for serving up some of the best drinks in town. The menu was originally cultivated under the tutelage of mixologist Aidan Demarest, and gained wings thanks to the hugely creative and balanced drinks of herb-growing bartender Naomi Schimek. Now owners Med Abrous and Marc Rose are seeking to expand the fun — and brand recognition — by launching a cocktail catering program. The plan is simple: If you have a special event or party coming up, you can hire the Spare Room team to create a craft cocktail service tailored to that event. The service includes bartenders, glassware and booze and is priced in three different ways — $50, $40 or $30 per person depending on the amount of drinks, mixers, beer and wine you’d like on hand. This won’t be your typical private party set-up. The syrups are house-made, the garnishes fresh and seasonal, the spirits often small batch. If your party has a theme, the Spare Room will match it with the appropriate libations. Want to go Tiki? There’s a South Pacific punch bowl for that. Here are a few examples of autumn-themed cocktails on offer, just to get your wheels spinning about the possibilities: Thanks Grandma! (Jamaican rum, hazelnut and allspice liqueurs, cinnamon spiced pumpkin, cream, nutmeg); Robert Frost (Magic Hat No. 9 beer, amaretto, lemon, apple cider); The Spare Room Snap (rye, gingerbread liqueur, lemon, egg white).

Ronald Moy, a Beverly Hills-based dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon, is known for NeoGraft surgery that delivers hair without leaving invasive signs. His Hollywood clientele, which includes Oscar-winning actors and actresses, can afford the surgery (which costs $4,000 to $9,000) but not much downtime. STORY:When Hairstylists to the Stars Change Salons, Celebrity Clients Follow During the time-consuming procedure, hairs are removed from the back or side of the scalp using a handheld vacuum with gentle suction and placed into other areas without a scalpel or stitches. Instead, individual hairs are placed carefully into thinning areas by a device that gently punches them back into the scalp. “This new technology is so natural that it’s a game-changer, and the downtime is only a week,” says Moy. There’s another trick for those looking to hide a bad transplant or trying to make a new one undetectable to critical eyes. In Redondo Beach, Sanusi Umar uses leg hair to supplement transplanted scalp hair in a key place: the hairline. Because hair taken from the back or side of the head generally is coarser, it can appear a bit obvious. Leg hair, which is softer, helps create a more natural edge. Costs run about $8,000 for this finishing touch. Aside from surgery, shots and serums, though, a low-tech solution is growing in popularity among those seeking to embrace baldness, fill in thinning hair or camouflage a scar.

And yet the release of Paramount Pictures’ Chris Pine -led “Jack Ryan: Shadow One” this Christmas will mark only the fifth time one of the author’s books has gotten the big screen treatment (as well as the fifth time a Ryan movie will come to the screen).

The first movie in that series is arguably the author’s best-known adaptation — 1990’s “The Hunt for Red October,” based on Clancy’s first published work. The film starring Sean Connery and Alec Baldwin was a blockbuster, grossing over $200 million worldwide and even winning an Oscar for its sound effects. (Baldwin, the first actor to ever portray Jack Ryan, tweeted early Wednesday that Clancy was a”real gentleman of the old school.”) PHOTOS: Celebrities react on Twitter to Tom Clancy’s death Harrison Ford would go on to take over the role in 1992’s “Patriot Games” and 1994’s “Clear and Present Danger,” each of which also did massive business. It was nearly a decade before Jack Ryan turned up at the multiplex again — this time, played by Ben Affleck in 2002’s “The Sum of All Fears,” the least well-reviewed of any of Clancy’s adaptations, but no less popular with moviegoers. Despite these successful collaborations with the movie business, Clancy was openly hesitant about about the film industry. “Giving your book to Hollywood is like turning your daughter over to a pimp,” went one of his more famous quotes. Clancy disliked the slow pace at which movies were made, questioning why it took so long for screenwriters to pen a 120-page script when he could churn out a 1,200-page manuscript in five months. PHOTOS: Notable deaths of 2013 “We all know that time is money,” he told The Times in a 1995 interview. “Well, by God, time really is money in Hollywood, and yet the Hollywood process wastes a colossal amount of time unnecessarily.” Clancy also frequently sparred with Paramount, which released all of his Jack Ryan movies.
