Enrique Iglesias knows a thing or two about emergency situations.
The 40-year-old Miami resident did a number on his right hand back in May when he made the unfortunate decision to grab a camera drone at a concert in Tijuana, Mexico.
Ever the sport, Iglesias continued as long as he could with the show, with his two fingers bandaged, and even drawing a heart in the center of his white shirt with blood.
You, too, can savor the moment of the pop superstar’s accident by buying a tee that resembles the one he wore that evening. The I Like It crooner, who later underwent reconstructive surgery, is working with Save the Children to sell slightly gruesome replicas on his website for $27.50. At least $12 from each sale will benefit Save the Children’s emergency fund, which focuses on responding quickly to such emergencies as floods and disease outbreaks as well as providing life saving supplies.
Never miss a local story.
“My heart goes out to the kids around the world who have lived through a humanitarian crisis and have to rebuild their lives from scratch,” Iglesias said in a statement.
Coconut Creek High School grad Bobby Cannavale is going to be a dad. Not that he made an announcement. The notoriously private actor’s girlfriend, Bridesmaids actress Rose Byrne, was recently spotted out at Los Angeles International Airport sporting a hard-to-hide bump. The couple began dating in 2012 and co-starred in films Adult Beginners, Annie and Spy. Cannavale, 45, has a 20-year-old son, actor Jake Cannavale (Nurse Jackie), with ex wife, actress/screenwriter Jenny Lumet, filmmaker Sidney Lumet’s daughter.
The Western horror action movie Bone Tomahawk has a local connection, even though it’s not opening in Miami (it’s available on iTunes and other VOD platforms).
Writer-director S. Craig Zahler and composer Jeff Herriott grew up here and went to Miami Palmetto Senior High School.
This tidbit comes to us from classmate Graham Winick, who is “very proud” of his old chums. Winick also happens to head up Miami Beach’s film office and likes to promote Florida talent, he says.
Starring Kurt Russell, Patrick Wilson and Richard Jenkins, Bone Tomahawk is about a group of gunslingers who go after beastly cave dwellers.
