‘Glee’ actress Rivera engaged to Big Sean
On the new season of “Glee,” Naya Rivera’s character Santana has just fallen for new cast member Demi Lovato.
In real life, Rivera’s heart belongs to rapper Big Sean, whose real name is Sean Anderson.
A publicist for the actress and singer confirms they’re engaged.
Twenty-six-year-old Rivera and 25-year-old Big Sean went public with their relationship earlier this year, after they met over Twitter.
Rivera wore her diamond engagement ring at a party Thursday in Los Angeles to celebrate her cover of Latina magazine’s Hollywood Hot List.
The couple has collaborated musically as well. Big Sean is featured on Rivera’s debut single “Sorry”, which was released last month.
Spielberg honors George Clooney
It’s been 20 years since Steven Spielberg made his Oscar-winning “Schindler’s List,” but the director has keen memories of Holocaust survivors coming up to him during filming, wanting to tell him about their lives.
“They said, please, let me tell you my story,” he said. “They just wanted me to listen.”
That experience, the director says, gave him the idea to launch a foundation — now called the USC Shoah Foundation — that ever since has been collecting, indexing and archiving video testimonies of Holocaust survivors, before the passage of time makes it too late. Recently, the group has expanded its focus, adding testimonies of survivors of the Rwanda genocide as well.
On Thursday evening, Spielberg and his foundation marked its 20th anniversary — as well as the anniversary of “Schindler’s List” — with a New York gala, honoring a fellow Hollywood heavyweight active in humanitarian work: George Clooney.
“George is the best kind of humanitarian,” Spielberg told the crowd. “The humble humanitarian.” The director called Clooney “an unparalleled example of action over apathy.”
