Jussie Smollett is on fire! The Empire star’s sudden rise to fame did not make him lose himself. Instead, the 32-year-old is using his platform to raise awareness for issues he is passionate about. His goal is to raise his voice in support of the LGBT community.

Smollett recently chatted it up with Out magazine, where he shared that he never felt like he needed to come out of the closet.“It was a much bigger deal for other people than it was for me,” he said.

He went on to say that though he hasn’t found his soulmate yet, he will not give up looking because he has an open heart and believes in love, no matter what society is telling him.

“You’re not going to tell me that loving someone is wrong,” he said. “That does not mean that heterosexuality is not very real. It does not mean that bisexuality is not very real. It does not mean that homosexuality is not very real. They are all very real. But what I’m saying is I am a gay man. I am a gay man. I am a gay man. I don’t know how many times I have to say that.”

After amassing over 2.5 million views, the hit web series from comedian Rory Uphold, “Only in HelLA” premieres its second season with Chicago PD actress, Sophia Bush! “HelLA” (pronounced: Hell-Lay) is a satirical look at Rory’s attempt to navigate the eccentricities of LA culture. Each episode is a snapshot of an embarrassing and awkward “only in LA” moment.  From legalized weed mishaps, to awkward celebrity run-ins and Botox peddling dermatologists, “HelLA” is an exploration of everything Los Angelenos despise about the city they love.

In the season two premiere episode, “Getting Ready For Award Shows”, Sophia comments on her role stating, “We wanted to poke some fun at the insane scrutiny that women go through on the red carpet – she’s too pale! The color of that dress is so last week! – but to do it in a way that was goofy and over the top.”

Rory further reveals, “I feel like every girl has had a self-tanning mishap in their life, just not everyone has it before they’re walking the red carpet. Sophia is one of the few people I know that would go this far, literally orange, for a joke. She is a kween!” 

Watch the season two premiere episode via: https://youtu.be/q2dEjEKtQpk

New episodes of “Only in HelLA” premiere every Tuesday at http://www.OnlyinHelLA.com and feature other Hollywood stars including Chris Lowell (Veronica Mars), Amanda Schull (Center Stage, Pretty Little Liars), Kevin McHale (Glee) and pop singer BettyWho.

The Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation announced today that Donna Langley, Chairman of Universal Pictures, will receive the 2016 Pioneer of the Year honor on April 13th at CinemaCon in Las Vegas.

Since starting with Universal Pictures 15 years ago, Langley is now in her third year as the sole chairman of the film studio. She oversees all aspects of Universal’s production and marketing operations worldwide, including the international production and acquisitions arm as well as the studio’s specialty division, Focus Features. Under Langley’s leadership, 2015 marked the highest-grossing domestic, international and worldwide box-office years, ever, in any studio’s history.

Langley has worked on some of the biggest hits ever to be released by Universal, including many of its franchises—the latest entries of which include Jurassic World, which had the second-biggest worldwide opening weekend in history and is currently the fourth-highest-grossing movie of all time, and Furious 7, which stands as the sixth-highest-grossing movie ever. 2015 also marked the first time any studio tallied three films to cross a billion dollars at the worldwide box office, with Furious 7, Jurassic World and Minions all reaching that milestone.

During her tenure with Universal, Langley has been a driving force behind some of the studio’s biggest hits, including Fifty Shades of Grey, Unbroken, Neighbors, the Academy Award®-winning Les Misérables, Pitch Perfect, Ted, Bridesmaids, Mamma Mia!, Knocked Up and Wanted, among others. Langley is credited with reinvigorating and growing some of Universal’s most lucrative and popular franchises including the Fast & Furious series, which has grossed more than $3.9 billion, and Bourne series.

Langley was named The Hollywood Reporter‘s Executive of the Year in 2015 and has been regularly featured in its Top 100 Women in Entertainment issue. She has also been featured on Forbes “World’s 100 Most Powerful Women” list.

The Pioneer of the Year dinner, an industry tradition for over 70 years, honors leaders of the motion picture industry and within the philanthropic community. Past honorees include Cecil B. DeMille, Jack Warner, Darryl F. Zanuck, Jack Valenti, Terry Semel, Sumner Redstone, Sherry Lansing, Alan Horn, Kathleen Kennedy, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Tom Sherak and the 2015 honoree, Jim Gianopulos. Proceeds from the event benefit the Pioneers Assistance Fund (PAF), an industry charity that helps individuals who work in theatrical entertainment, who are encountering an illness, injury or life-changing event.

The Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation operates the PAF. For more information about the Pioneer of the Year Dinner or the Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation, please visit www.wrpioneers.org.
