Barack and Michelle Obama have purchased their third home, an $11.75 million mansion in Martha's Vineyard. It is 7,000 square feet with seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and sits on 39 acres. The Obamas will likely use it as a vacation home, as they have summered on Martha's Vineyard for years.

Their primary residence is their 6,400-square foot, nine-bedroom mansion in Washington, D.C., that they purchased for $8.1 million. They also have a 6,200-square foot, $1.65 million mansion in Chicago.

‘Star Wars': Oscar Isaac, John Boyega and JJ Abrams on Finn and Poe not happening

Oscar Isaac: “Personally, I kind of hoped and wished that maybe that would’ve been taken further in the other films, but I don’t have control. It seemed like a natural progression, but sadly enough it’s a time when people are too afraid, I think, of… I don’t know what. But if they would’ve been boyfriends, that would have been fun.”

John Boyega: “They’ve always had a quite loving and open relationship in which it wouldn’t be too weird if it went beyond it. But at the same time, they are just platonic at the moment.”

JJ Abrams: “That relationship to me is a far deeper one than a romantic one. It is a deep bond that these two have, not just because of the trial by fire in which they met, but also because of their willingness to be as intimate as they are, as afraid as they, as unsure as they are, and still be bold, and still be daring and brave."

Abrams added: “And in the case of the LGBTQ community, it was important to me that people who go to see this movie feel that they’re being represented in the film... I will say I’m giving away nothing about what happens in the movie. But I did just say what I just said.”


Daisy Ridley doesn't understand privilege

Contents of the interview:
- Her habit of gaining an audience and rejecting it beyond her performance.
- She is the strongest and healthiest she's ever been.
- She wasn't a Star Wars fan previous to being in it, which helped her reject the weight of the franchise to embody Rey.
- She says there is a disconnect in the consent of celebrities to have their photos taken and uploaded online, a practice which doesn't extend to most people.
- She doesn't feel safe if her friends are on their phones at private and intimate moments, such as dinner. She doesn't understand why people would want everyone to know what they're up to all the time.
- Says attention is always directed at her if she's out with family or friends, and it's rude - people don't know her and shouldn't assume they can just ask her about her life.
- Becomes defensive when the interviewer mentions her parents' connections and wealth (her Grandfather was head of BBC engineering) and the fact she went to boarding school. Not mentioned in article but her mother's side comes from landed gentry (families that made a living exclusively on being landowners / rental income).
- Says her and her co-star John Boyega are 'so similar' despite him applying for a hardship fund to join the theatre when he was younger (excerpt above).
- Clarifies that the interviewer is not wrong, but she has never been asked about it before so doesn't know what to say.

- Used to gatecrash parties in Mayfair.
- But she isn't really a partier. Doesn't take drugs and doesn't drink often.
- Grateful she didn't have a 'bikini' moment in Star Wars.
- Doesn't have other projects lined up for now. Has said no to films that don't have equal pay and atmospheres before.
- Doesn't feel she needs to hide her beliefs because of Disney.
- Happiest having a nap in her parents' home.

The objective of the piece is to offer insight into how we assign worth to objects, according to the artist, Maurizio Cattelan.

Do you think lack of talent and technique and tacking on a dumb commentary to random trash has turned contemporary art into a joke, ONTD?

Dame Maggie Smith Says ‘Harry Potter’ And ‘Downton Abbey’ Weren’t ‘Satisfying’

Maggie Smith was not particularly happy with her work in “Harry Potter” and “Downton Abbey”.
Her roles were not as iconic to her as they were to the rest of the world.
She felt as though her work in the movies consisted of too many reaction shots.

“I am deeply grateful for the work in ‘Potter’ and indeed ‘Downton’. But it wasn’t what you’d call satisfying. I didn’t really feel I was acting in those things. I wanted to get back to the stage so much because theatre is basically my favourite medium, and I think I felt as though I’d left it all unfinished.”
