Some of…The Magnificent Seven

Monday, September 19th, 2016

My latest cover story debuted this month: A Parade magazine interview with Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt, about what it’s like playing Two of the Good Guys.

mag7coverI spoke to the pair at a home in Los Angeles, about their latest film: The Magnificent Seven, which is sort of a remake (1960’s The Magnificent Seven released in 1960) of a remake (1954’s Seven Samurai), but more so just its own thing.

The film, led by director Antoine Fuqua, opens nationally this weekend. And in the meantime, enjoy the fun that is Denzel and Chris batting their answers back and forth and discussing how they got along with their horses, and the value of playing “the goofy, funny guy.”

Alex Morgan: Kicking Ass

Wednesday, June 1st, 2016

I love talking to kickass women, and this month, it was Alex Morgan, forward for the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team. We talked for the cover of the July 2016 issue of Health magazine.

We got to talk about all the good stuff: How she warms up, works out and stays fit as she kills it on the U.S. team that won a gold medal and a World Cup championship. And we also talked about the important battle she and her teammates are waging in the fight for equal pay and comparable field quality for the women’s team — fair pay for fair play.

You can read the full fun and inspiring story on the Health.com site: Alex Morgan: Gold Rush. And you can also pick up the issue on stands and get a small taste of her awesome story here.
