  • Stars Strive to Shine Just Right in Awards Season Spotlight

    So is Robert Redford really a "fun guy"? And does Joseph Gordon-Levitt truly project "a mellow, laid-back vibe?" I pondered these earth-shaking questions as I read recent examples of that dubious literary genre, the "celebrity interview," wherein...
