George Clooney, Rande Gerber ‘shocked’ at $1 billion tequila offer

Rande Gerber says he and his business partner George Clooney were stunned when they were offered a whopping $1 billion to sell the tequila company they started just four years ago — and never expected it to gain so much popularity. “We never planned on starting a tequila company. You know, we made Casamigos just for us to drink,” Gerber said during a phone interview with Good Morning America on Thursday. “Once we did launch the company, we thought, ‘Hey, if we could sell a bottle or two, great. If not, at least we still get to drink our own tequila.'” He added: “So, four years later when we’re offered a billion dollars to sell the company, yeah, we were kind of shocked.” Looking back to where it all began.  

Ian McKellen: It’s ‘Un-American’ for Trump Not to Protect Gay Rights

During an interview at the Variety Studio in Cannes Lions, the actor Ian McKellen had harsh words for President Donald Trump if he fails to follow through — as seems to be the case — on a campaign promise to protect the rights of the LGBT community.

‘Rogue One’ is coming to Netflix in July

The upcoming Star Wars anthology film exploring the backstory of Han Solo hit a road bump this week when directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller parted ways with the production (Ron Howard is set to step in and finish the job). But as eager fans wait for the Han Solo story to sort itself out, they can take solace in the fact that the first anthology film, last year’s Rogue One, is set to hit Netflix next month. Directed by Gareth Edwards, Rogue One tells the story of Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones), a troubled loner who is recruited by the Rebel Alliance to steal the Empire’s Death Star plans before it’s too late. Teaming up with Rebels like the enigmatic Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) and the sarcastic droid K-2SO (Alan Tudyk), Jyn’s quest for salvation and redemption runs right up to the beginning of the original film, Star Wars: A New Hope. As EW’s Chris Nashawaty wrote in his B+ review of the film, “Rogue One would have been a very good stand-alone sci-fi movie if it came out under a different name. But what makes it especially exciting is how it perfectly snaps right into the Star Wars timeline and connects events we already know by heart with ones that we never even considered.” Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is set to hit Netflix July 18.
