Jamie Lee Curtis Shedding Skin
1 of 5
Jamie Lee Curtis
 
Golden Globe winning actress Jamie Lee Curtis isn't afraid to get real. She went au naturel on the cover of AARP The Magazine— but wants to set the record straight. "Isn't it fascinating that this constitutes being naked?" Jamie says. "In my world, this is called strapless."

Jamie says there was a deeper message behind the cover. "The idea was, it's shedding skin. And I think that's where the misnomer came from because the idea of shedding skin is peeling away the layers," she says. "Peeling the layers away to get to that beautiful essence. The more you peel away, the stronger the scent—the stronger the message, the mind."

    Oscar's Legendary Leading Ladies

    There have been 69 best actress winners in Oscar history—and three of those legendary ladies are getting together to relive their golden moments and reflect on life after Oscar.

    Throughout her career, Sissy Spacek has been nominated six times. First nominated in 1976 for the teen scream classic Carrie, Sissy took home the gold for Best Actress in 1981 for her spot-on performance of country singer Loretta Lynn in Coal Miner's Daughter. Since then, Sissy has captivated audiences in more than 60 film and television roles.

    Four-time Oscar nominee Holly Hunter is best known for playing the brilliant but neurotic television producer in the 1987 hit Broadcast News. Holly won the Academy Award for her haunting portrayal of a mute woman trapped in a loveless marriage in The Piano.

    Susan Sarandon's sexy turn as a baseball groupie in the 1988 movie Bull Durham made her a star, and her gutsy performance in Thelma and Louise had women across America cheering her on. Susan had already stacked up four Oscar nominations when she won Best Actress for her role as a compassionate nun in Dead Man Walking.

        Chef Curtis Stone's Takeout Intervention
        Chef Curtis Stone stages a takeout intervention for Matt and Melissa.
        Imagine if one of the top chefs in the country came knocking at your door and offered to teach you how to make your favorite meals. This is exactly what happened to Melissa and Matt, parents from Ashburn, Virginia, who spend up to $400 a week on food delivery and takeout.

        Oprah Show producers dispatch Curtis Stone, the Australian host of TLC's Take Home Chef and a sandwich showdown competitor, to Melissa and Matt's home to stage a takeout intervention.

        For years, Melissa says she spent hours making meals no one liked. Matt says they order out six—sometimes seven—nights a week.

        With Curtis's help, that's all about to change!

          Spotlight on: Kobe Doin' Work

          Kobe Bryant is hailed by many as the greatest player in the game, but he's not above busting out his best Thriller moves with his daughter after a hard-fought game. The only man who could capture such magic off and on the court? Acclaimed filmmaker Spike Lee.

          Lee's documentary Kobe Doin' Work follows the L.A. Lakers superstar before, during and after an April 13, 2008, playoff game against the San Antonio Spurs. With 30 cameras trained only on Bryant—and unprecedented locker room access granted by coach Phil Jackson—Lee's film is an intimate look at Bryant and the game of basketball as a whole.

          Lee says his inspiration for this project came from a documentary about soccer great Zinedine Zidane. "How they did it was they kept one camera on Zidane," Lee says. "I said: 'This is great. We should try this with basketball.' So I went to Kobe."

          The hurdles were great. Lee needed top-down approval from the NBA and a nationally televised game so he could use footage from the extra cameras. "We had to hustle," he says.

          Once a date was set, Lee and his team executed their plan with near-military precision. "We wanted to be in the huddle in time-out. Certain plays, like dunks, we wanted to be right up at the basket. We wanted to have a lot of shots on the arms, the legs of Kobe—not necessarily whole head-to-toe shots," he says. " Every operator knew where they would be for the game, and then I told them what we'd be expecting from each operator. A lot of that stuff you can't just grab on the run. It has to be set up."

          During play, Bryant's commentary takes us through every shot, strategy and emotion of the game. "Going in, I knew that the man's an Einstein as far as his basketball IQ," Lee says. "That is one of the reasons why we wanted him to do a commentary for it, so he can impart his vast knowledge of basketball to average fans."

          Whether you're a casual fan or a basketball devotee, Lee says this is a film for everyone. "Kobe's one of the greatest players who ever played, and basketball's a great sport," he says. "It's operatic, ballet, jumping, shouting, strategy. People should give it a try."
