Earlier today, Nick Cannon got into the holiday spirit by handing out toys at a Build-a-Bear Workshop benefiting the Toys for Tots Foundation. Then he was asked by E! News to clear up the "twin" rumors (he posted a Holiday card online for his fans and said he's thankful for "the new ADDITONS to his family") and Nick referred to his baby(ies) using a plural pronoun. Here's video of the proud papa:
Double mini-Mimi's? Oh my!
For The Hollywood Reporter's 'Legends Issue' - 80th Anniversary - Sidney Poitier posed with Halle Berry representing the first African-Americans to win Oscars for best actor/actress. Sidney for Lilies Of The Field (1964) and Halle for Monster's Ball (2002). They were shot by Peggy Sirota at Sidney's Beverly Hills home:
Halle commented in the issue about attempting to take baby Nahla to meet Mr. Porter. Here's an excerpt:
One thing Sidney Poitier didn’t have in his leading-man heyday? Paparazzi. But on this December morning, Halle Berry, being Halle Berry, arrives at Poitier’s Beverly Hills home with her 2-year-old daughter Nahla — and four lensmen on her heels.
As they exit the car, Nahla sees the men and begins crying; the audience Berry wanted for her daughter with Poitier doesn’t happen, as Nahla is whisked away by a nanny.
“Sidney is part of our history,” says a disappointed Berry, who otherwise seems unfazed. “He’s a legend, and one day I knew she would thank me for allowing her to be in his presence.”
And what a mark he has made. It was a watershed moment in Hollywood when Poitier won the best actor Oscar for Lilies of the Field in 1963, becoming the first African American performer to do so. His victory, preceded by an Oscar nomination five years earlier for The Defiant Ones (1958), happened before Berry even was born. As a child, though, Berry eventually saw Lillies. “Wow. I was, even as a girl, madly in love,” she says. (To which Poitier jokes, “Now you tell me!”)
The legends issue hits newsstands nationwide Friday, Dec. 17.
