What are Your Favorite Celebrities Doing This Summer?
Although it’s nearly impossible not to think of the Marvel character Wolverine when talking about Hugh Jackman, the Australian actor has had a long and successful career. In 2013, he won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor and was also nominated for the Academy Awards Best Actor for his work in the much-praised Les Misérables.
After the success of last year’s musical, The Greatest Showman, and filming The Front Runner, which is due out in November, Jackman took a much need break this summer, taking his wife Deborra-Lee Furness for a romantic holiday in Italy. The couple, who’ve been married for over 22 years, enjoyed the sun on the island of Capri.
Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler
It seems the rather unlikely pairing of Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston is happening again. They have previously worked together in the romantic comedy Just Go With It, and the pair are now in Montreal this summer to film the new Netflix film Murder Mystery. It depicts the story of a couple traveling around Europe, who end up in a yacht with a dead billionaire—a classic whodunit story.
Sandler has recently starred in the acclaimed The Meyerowitz Stories film, which was selected for the Palme d’Or main competition. While Aniston’s war film The Yellow Birds received paltry reviews, but her role in the upcoming musical comedy Dumplin’ based on the novel of same, seems to be gathering great expectations.
Emma Watson earned worldwide fame after portraying Hermione Granger in the eight Harry Potter movies from 2001 to 2011. From there, she starred in a selection of movies including the musical live action film, Beauty and the Beast, and eventually went back to studying and graduated with an English Literature bachelor’s degree.
She’s now the United Nations Women Goodwill Ambassador and spends most of her time advocating for gender equality. This summer Watson went to London to attend the Wimbledon tennis competition and recently surprised school children by playing hockey with them for a charity event. She also chaired the opening session of the day of the Landmark philanthropic summit, an event that supports the end of violence against women.
