It could have been Hollywood. Spotlights, stars and the big screen came to Atlanta for the premiere of City Slickers II. Since Ted Turner owns Castle Rock Pictures, he talked Billy Crystal, Jack Palance and Jon Lovitz into coming down and showing the city how the West was really won. The whole town was invited to the Fox Theatre for the screening, and with tickets starting at only $25, more than 4,000 people showed up. The event raised $53,000 for Jimmy Carter's charity, The Atlanta Project. The party started off with cowboys and cowgirls on horseback and didn't end until the last Southerner learned to two-step. Jack and Billy surprised the crowd by dropping to the ground in the middle of Peachtree Street and doing one-armed push-ups, but it was Jimmy Carter who got the most applause when he announced that all the popcorn had been popped in pure Georgia peanut oil.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
