Dierks Bentley Reflects On Major Full-Circle Moment

As we reported earlier this week, Dierks Bentley opened his Whiskey Row Bar in downtown Nashville and invited several famous friends like Thomas Rhett, Maddie &amp;  Tae, Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd, Cole Swindell and more. He reflects on how life used to be for him before making big in the country music world and how he has made it full circle.

“It’s just this real full-circle moment to go from a place where you’re lugging, I used to play this place where I had to park, dump my tailgate, lug all my PA equipment in, jump back in my car hoping I didn’t get a parking ticket, you know ’cause I’m parked in the street with my hazards on, go find a place to park for free ’cause I’m not making any money anyway. I knew these little spots before Nashville got so big. You know, play a show, drink, sober up, get my truck, load up my PA equipment, drive back to my house. Now to be here 18 years later, the PA’s system there. It’s a really good PA system. It sounds amazing, and it’s my own place. My name’s on the door. I in the meantime, I’ve had a pretty good career. It’s a really reflective moment for me and still is, and I can’t believe it’s true.”

The Latest: Angela Lansbury, 92, schools young actors

The Latest on upcoming programming from the TV Critics meeting in Pasadena, California (all times local):

5:46 p.m.

Angela Lansbury has words of wisdom for young actors.

Lansbury, 92, who plays crusty Aunt March in PBS' new adaptation of "Little Women," advised newcomers to learn everything they can about a character to avoid just spouting words.

Actors who fail to approach their work thoughtfully will end up "a flash in the pan," Lansbury said.

"It's terribly important to get out of yourself and into that character. Leave yourself at home," she told a TV critics meeting Tuesday.

The two-part adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's classic novel, debuting May 13 on PBS' "Masterpiece" showcase, stars Maya Hawke, daughter of Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, in her screen debut. She plays aspiring writer Jo March.

Hawke called it a "huge gift and a huge honor" to work with Lansbury and Emily Watson, who plays Jo's mother, Marmee.

PBS chief executive Paula Kerger said Tuesday will address the burst of attention to the issue and how it can be used to produce "positive and lasting change."

"#MeToo, Now What?" will be hosted by Zainab Salbi, founder of Women for Women International, a humanitarian organization. The debut date is Feb. 2.

PBS said the series will include reporting and conversations on topics including how race and class figure into the issue. Studio guests will include men and women from across the country, along with activists, and leaders from media, business and other sectors.

At least 4 Olympians won’t accept invitation to White House

Controversy has hit the Winter Olympics before the torch has been lit in South Korea, as four U.S. Olympians — plus one “furious” ice skater who didn’t end up making the cut — preempted a White House invite from President Donald Trump by turning it down.

>> Read more trending news

Skiers Gus Kenworthy and Lindsey Vonn, and figure skaters Nathan Chen and Adam Rippon have all said publicly that they will not accept a White House invite from the president in the event that they receive one.

Figure skater Ashley Wagner said the same, but she didn’t make Team USA.

Kenworthy and Rippon, who are both openly gay, said that they do not support Trump’s policies and do not want to appear that they do by visiting the White House.

“I am very proud to represent the U.S. but I don’t stand by Trump and his cabinet and their policies,” Kenworthy said. ”I do not want to feign approval for policies that are in place and things that are being pushed at the moment, by going. If I was invited I would decline my spot.”

Rippon said that he felt it is his “duty” not to go.

“Athletes are given a really special platform. It’s our duty, as athletes, to be role models. I won’t go to the White House,” Rippon told the BBC. “I won’t go because I don’t think somebody like me would be welcome there. I know what it’s like to go into a room and feel like you’re not wanted there.”

USA Today reported that Nathan Chen and Ashley Wagner would also decline an invite. In Wagner’s case, it is moot since she did not qualify for Team USA.

Wagner notably missed out on an Olympic appearance, said that she was “furious” about the decision-making by the judges and that she believed that she wasn’t treated fairly.

“I’m furious. I am absolutely furious. I know when I go and I lay it down, and I absolutely left one jump on the table. But for me to put out two programs that I did at this competition, as solid as I skated, and to get those scores, I am furious, and I think deservedly so,” she said. “I am absolutely OK with [judges] being strict on my [jump] rotations […] but you know it needs to be across the board. I don’t necessarily feel like it’s been that way at this event, so we’ll see how things pan out.”

The U.S. Figure Skating selection committee responded that the judges “absolutely made the right call.”

Wagner later changed her tune.

Lindsey Vonn said as early as the beginning of December that she hoped to “represent the people of the United States, not the president.”

When asked if she would accept an invite she replied “Absolutely not.”

Matt Damon apologizes for comments on sexual misconduct

Matt Damon says the backlash for his comments on sexual misconduct was actually very helpful.

A few weeks ago, Damon told The Associated Press and other outlets that there were varying degrees of misconduct and the punishment should reflect that. But he was criticized by some, including ex-girlfriend Minnie Driver.

In an interview with the AP on Tuesday, Damon says he wishes he had listened more before offering his thoughts, and that he "doesn't want to further anybody's pain."

He says he's sorry and adds that the feedback on his comments have been "very helpful."

He adds that he supports the Time's Up organization Hollywood women founded to combat sexual harassment nationwide.
