Kevin Spacey, recently took time out of his schedule, to read to children while at Harrod’s famous luxury department store in London. The reading was held in the children’s reading room, where Harrods VIP clients, along with their children, were invited to listen to Kevin’s rendition of an extract from the famous book. From what I have read, I believe the book is called “Le Petit Prince”.

Jimmy Dean was brought to me by his friend, Sanford Roth, the photographer. In the beginning it appeared that Jimmy wanted to learn the fine points of sculpturing. I was his teacher for that, but I soon learned that Jimmy posessed the most insatiable thirst for knowledge of any young man I’ve ever known. After his second or third lesson he wanted to hear me explain the technique sculptors use to carve faces in mountains such as Rushmore. His quest for artistic truths was frightening. He wanted to know just about every single fact, idea, theory that had been discovered by man clear back to the stone age. He was much too suspicious of people, but he had a tremendous respect for any who had knowledge.
When I was informed that he had died in an auto accident I was not surprised. He was a human rocket who burned so fiercely and brightly that he blinded people. Life wasn’t big enough to contain him. If there is a hereafter, James Dean will appreciate the infinity of eternity. - Sculptress Pegot Waring
Q I’d like to ask you about Han Suk-kyu: At the beginning of your career, you worked with him a lot in films and on TV but around 1999 your careers drifted apart. I’m interested to know how your relationship has progressed over time as you have focused on younger directors and talent and as you’ve said you choose the director to work with first?
Choi Min-sik: Our relationship hasn’t changed at all. Personally, he was one of my juniors at university and I’ve known him since he was 21 years old. Even now, we would often meet up and talk and in ‘Oldboy’ the character that Yoo Ji-tae played, called Lee Woo-jin, I actually recommended that character to him very strongly. I also recommended the character played by Lee Byung-hun in ‘I Saw the Devil’ to him as well but it didn’t work out. Even now, he’s an actor that I would love to work with again and he’s also a dear friend… but the director’s opinion is more important.
