Here’s what caught my eye this morning:
- “Today” and “Good Morning America” talking about Irish actor Jamie Dornan who is taking over the role of Christian Grey in the film version of “50 Shades of Grey.” Today.com survey found 56 percent who responded didn’t know who he was. Oh, but chances are you’ve seen him showing off his abs and more in Calvin Klein ads. “Once Upon a Time” fans may know him as The Huntsman.
- Makeup artist Jill Glaser gave “You & Me This Morning” tips on how to pull off Halloween makeup. (Halloween is everywhere on morning TV these days.) Glaser’s good advice: Practice beforehand; see how much time it’ll take (probably more than you’d expect). And here’s a tip you probably haven’t seen in fashion mags: bright lips offset green skin.
- Speaking of Halloween, Robert Englund, AKA Freddy Krueger, told “WGN This Morning” Lon Chaney was his childhood inspiration for playing a super scary guy. What the transformation to Freddy Krueger took: foam latex, Vaseline and getting “basted with K-Y Jelly.” Englund’s going to be in Woodridge and Naperville this weekend.
- Actress Lauren Holly told “GMA” she’s worried she’s raising a trio of liars. Conversation started with a blog entry she had on People.com. Kids won’t ‘fess up over who drank a can of soda.(The Wellness editor in me says get soda out of the house. But that’s easy for me to say since I had a kid who disliked soda from day one. But I digress.) The lying has her concerned. Maybe in this situation it’s a case of them not wanting to rat out one of their brothers. I get where she’s coming from about wanting to raise honest children; they do stuff like this and you the parent worries have I had no influence on their character? And then we obsess a wee bit too much. Been there, done that.
