Welcome back to our 6 Degrees column, where we discuss the connections between celebrities by 6 degrees, (a theory made famous in popular culture by Kevin Bacon). Unsure what 6 Degrees are? Visit our original column to learn more about it!
Last week, we discussed Julia Roberts’ and Justin Bieber’s “6 Degree” connection, and revealed the fact that they are connected through only 2 degrees.
The next pair of celebrities we are looking at is multiple Oscar-winner Meryl Streep and supermodel extraordinaire Adriana Lima.
Meryl Streep & Adriana Lima
Meryl Streep is one of those rare actresses, so good in her profession, that she has not only always been offered movie roles, no matter what age, but has also been nominated for the prestigious Academy Award 21 times! That’s a record that no other actor has achieved in the history of the Academy Awards.
Adriana Lima is a Brazilian model and actress, and has been modeling since the age of 13. She is now one of the highest paid models in the world, and was a Victoria’s Secret Angel for 17 years, finishing her last show in 2018. Even at the age of 38, she totally defies the modeling world proving that at her age, she can still come out tops. She has also dipped her toes in the acting world, appearing in a few movies and TV shows.
So, how are these two very different stars connected? Well, besides the fact that they are both extremely successful, Meryl Streep was in The Manchurian Candidate with Vera Farmiga, who starred in The Hire with Adriana Lima . This makes their connection only 2 degrees apart. Also, Meryl Streep was in Mamma Mia! with Stellan Skarsgård, who was in The Hire with Adriana Lima.
Up next week on “6 Degrees”….You’ll never guess what the connection is between Denzel Washington and Selena Gomez!
The 3 Most Classic Superheroes
In the past 20 years, we have seen a surge in superhero movies. There’s something really fascinating about men, or aliens, from another planet that can do miraculous and superhuman things, and ultimately, save the day.
There have been, however, three superheroes whose stories keep getting renewed, as they are favorites with the fans. These three have stories that keep getting more complex and whose characters often develop over time. These are the three:
The first Superman hit theaters around the world in December 1978. It starred the dashing Christopher Reeve, Gene Hackman, Margot Kidder, and Marlon Brando, as Superman’s real father. It did exceptionally well in the box office, and there were four sequels after that starring the wonderful Christopher Reeve.
Superman is from another planet and is the strongest “human” on Earth. He has x-ray vision, can fly, and is faster than a “speeding bullet.” The only thing that can weaken him is Kryptonite, a green crystal from his planet, Krypton. Lex Luthor is Superman’s nemesis who, somehow, often gets his hands on Kryptonite to hurt and weaken Superman, but Superman always finds a way out of his struggle.
The first Superman will always be locked into our hearts and minds, as we watched Clark Kent clumsily act shyly, as a newspaper journalist, only to quickly change into his Superman gear and confidently save the day. The scene with Margot Kidder as Lois Lane, is exceptionally romantic as he lifts her up into the sky with him and they start to fly together.
The story of Superman progressed over the years, using actors Brandon Routh and finally the stunning Henry Cavill in the final Superman movie: Man of Steel. We then saw Superman along other superheroes in the Justice League 1 and 2 movies. We all wish Superman was real, so that he could fight all the world’s biggest problems and save the day!
