WHERE ARE THE JURASSIC PARK KIDS NOW?

jurassic park kids

Steven Spielberg changed the game in 1993 when he released the dinosaur epic Jurassic Park, which remains one of the most successful and popular movies Hollywood has ever seen. Among those featured in the movie were child nike sneakers actors Joseph Mazzello and Ariana Richards, who played the forever-traumatized grandchildren of Richard Attenborough. In the two decades since becoming famous for running from velociraptors, where are the Jurassic Park kids now? We dug up some pretty interesting facts to catch you up to (carbon) date.

According to a 2011 interview with the Wall Street Journal, Ariana Richards sent Steven Spielberg a watercolor self-portrait of herself that was inspired by one of the scenes in Jurassic Park, which now hangs in Spielberg’s office. For his part, Spielberg is a pretty good gift-giver, too. “He never fails to send me something around Christmas,” Richards said. “When he finds people he likes, he’s really good at keeping in touch.” And here we thought we couldn’t love Spielberg more than we do already.

Talk about friends in high places. In a 2013 interview with People, Mazzello revealed that Spielberg helped him get into the University ecco shoes of Southern California. “Steven wrote me a recommendation for USC to go to film school. Believe it or not, I got in,” he said, surprising exactly no one. “He’s been there for me throughout my life whenever I really needed him.” Mazzello graduated from USC with a degree in cinema and television.

Though he didn’t show up at the premiere of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Mazzello has acted steadily since becoming famous as a Jurassic Park kid. His biggest post-Jurassic roles include The Social Network, in which he played the Harvard student who inspired Mark Zuckerberg to add relationship statuses to people’s Facebook profiles, and a stint in the HBO Emmy-winning miniseries, The Pacific. More recently, he played John Deacon, the bass guitarist of Queen, in the wildly popular biopic Bohemian Rhapsody. When filming wrapped in January 2018, he tweeted: “I’m sad. Every moment was a pleasure. Every day was a blessing. One of the all time great experiences of my life.” And all that hard work and passion definitely came through in the finished product.

Although she was relatively young in Jurassic Park, Ariana Richards already had several credits to her name by the time she got her big break in the kickoff of the dino franchise. Richards had 16 acting credits prior to Jurassic Park, including a supporting role as Carol Wetherby in steve madden shoes the 1989 Christmas feel-good flick Prancer. (Also appearing in that film alongside stars Sam Elliott, Cloris Leachman, and Rebecca Harrell Tickell? Johnny Galecki, who would one day star on The Big Bang Theory.) Her other pre-Jurassic Park credits include appearances on The Golden Girls and Switched at Birth, as well as a role in 1990’s Spaced Invaders.

Ariana Richards’ movie career pretty much ended with the Jurassic Park franchise. She last appeared in a feature film in the 1997 sequel, The Lost World. Subsequent acting gigs were on an incredibly smaller scale; TV movies like Broken Silence: A Moment of Truth Movie (1998) and Tremors 3: Back to Perfection (2001) are among the titles. No, we’ve never heard of them either. And she hasn’t even bothered with those types since 2013, when she played in the TV movie Battledogs.

The Most Disturbing Movies Of The Last Decade

from The Babadook

When the history books are written, it’s a pretty safe bet that the 2010s will go down as one of the all-time great periods for cinema. That remains true even as we continue to debate the actual definition of the word. But even as strong a decade the 2010s have been for movies, they’ve been particularly good for movies designed to make viewers uneasy.

Call them horror movies, or thrillers, or skechers outlet psychological dramas with socio-sexual undertones — the movies that have brought the madness and the menace over the past decade have done so with arguably unparalleled insight and artistry. As such, it hardly seems fair to even attempt to assemble a single list of the decade’s best and bleakest, but that’s just what we’ve done here. From wildly unconventional sci-fi creepers to twisted tales of demonic possession, we’ve got a little something to unnerve even the savviest of shock-adoring cineastes. These are the most disturbing movies of the past decade.

from Under The Skin
If you’ve entered the earth-shattering rabbit hole that is Jonathan Glazer’s music video oeuvre, you already know the director has a particular penchant for pushing boundaries with unsettling imagery and ominous tones. One might even say Glazer revels in the bewildering as few directors dare. It’s only natural, then, that he’d continue weaving challenging images and disturbing themes into his feature films.

Few would argue that Glazer hadn’t already tested some serious boundaries with 2000’s searing crime drama Sexy Beast and 2004’s psychosexual nike outlet mystery Birth, but neither of those films could even begin to prepare us for how far Glazer would push things with 2013’s Under the Skin.

It’s a full-on assault on the senses from its opening moments to its last. It features a revelatory performance from Scarlett Johansson that’s about as far from the MCU as you can get. And that there’s a scene about halfway through this movie that’s so relentlessly unnerving you’ll struggle not to turn it off. Keep watching, though, because even if Under the Skin often feels like a movie you survive more than watch, crossing the finish line on this extraterrestrial odyssey is also one of the most rewarding cinematic experiences you’d ever hope to endure.

from Enter The Void

Argentinian filmmaker Gaspar Noé has made quite a reputation for himself over the years. More than just about any other director with a film on this list, Noé has made it his personal quest to shock and provoke. He broke minds and pushed viewers to the limit with the hyper-violent, emotionally punishing reverse narrative of 2002’s Irreversible, but it seems he had a different sort of head trip in mind for his third offering, 2009’s hallucinatory pseudo-afterlife drama Enter the Void.

Noé opens the action with a drug-dealing French expat with a penchant for wild hallucinogens meeting his end in a Tokyo bar. Upon death, his soul is cast free of his body and meanders through the film with an unknown goal in mind. Noé captures said soul’s every meandering, post-life moment in full-on POV mode, his camera floating in and out of moments, memories, and molecules like an omnipotent specter. And yes, that boldly stylistic approach is as breathtakingly brilliant and immersive as it is doggedly disconcerting, with Noé taking his camera/character places one might wish they’d never been. The result is a film that’s as oddly calming and thought-provoking as it is vividly adversarial — not to mention as mind-bogglingly original as any film produced in the past decade.

from Hereditary

According to writer-director Ari Aster, his brutalist 2018 shocker Hereditary is really just a little family drama at its core. But that’s sort of like calling Jaws a charming tale of fish out of water. So yes, while we really cannot argue that Hereditary isn’t a family drama, we also want to be crystal clear that Hereditary is not just a family drama.

Still, true to Aster’s statement, Hereditary keen shoes initially presents itself as an atypical sort of indie drama about a family in grief. As the film unfolds, a deep, dark past begins to rise to the surface, and Hereditary spirals giddily into a pulse-pounding supernatural nightmare simply you have to see to believe. Just be warned that you’ll never be able to unsee Hereditary.

In case you haven’t experienced it for yourself, we’ll simply say you’ll know the precise moment when Aster flips the proverbial switch from family drama to full-blown family tragedy. You’ll know because the moment it happens is easily one of the most shocking in the history of cinema. Aster is just getting warmed up in that moment, and Hereditary is about to get darker and heavier in ways you simply cannot fathom. It’s a brutal, exhausting affair, but if you manage to stick with Hereditary, you’ll bear witness to not just one of the great horror movies of the decade, but of all time.

from Midsommar

With Ari Aster’s Hereditary immediately raising the bar for genre filmmakers young and old, it seemed unlikely that anyone would top the film in terms of unadulterated, head-rolling shock value for the foreseeable future. Seems the only person capable of even coming close was Aster himself. While Midsommar may not quite match Hereditary in terms of shocks and scares, it may well be the better film in terms of soul-crushing emotional impact and mercilessly ominous energy.

Of course, to hear Aster tell it, Midsommar is a relatively straightforward “breakup movie.” Believe us when we say asics shoes that Midsommar is a “breakup movie” in the same way that Hereditary is a “family drama.” Which means that it’s not really a breakup movie at all.

The relationship in question belongs to Dani (Florence Pugh) and Christian (Jack Reynor), and if ever there was a couple in need of a breakup, it’s them. But nothing is ever that easy in the worlds of Ari Aster, and from the torturous opening moments of Midsommar, the director is out to turn the screws of the pair’s doomed relationship in increasingly twisted ways. By the time the couple and their pals get to the titular Swedish festival, fates are effectively sealed — though nothing can even remotely prepare you for the gory, sun-drenched mayhem Aster has in store for the rest of the film.

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson are officially dating

Pete Davidson is officially going to have to keep up with the Kardashians.

Page Six has exclusively learned that the Skims founder, 41, and the “Saturday Night Live” star, 28, are officially dating.

The news of their budding romance comes after several dates in Davidson’s native New York City and Kardashian’s hometown of Los Angeles.

The “King of Staten Island” star most recently traveled to California salomon boots for his birthday on Tuesday and spent time with Flavor Flav at the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” alum’s mom Kris Jenner’s Palm Springs mansion.

The photographic evidence of the odd grouping also served as a means to promote Kardashian’s Skims pajamas, as Davidson, the reality star and Jenner, 66, were each wearing a set. (As they say, the couple that twins together stays together.)

Reps for the new couple didn’t immediately return Page Six’s requests for comment.

Kardashian and Davidson were first spotted holding hands on a ride at Knott’s Scary Farm in Southern California on Oct. 29, shortly after her “SNL” hosting gig — where the pair shared a kiss during a sketch.

Page Six revealed that the “Big Time Adolescence” sperry shoes actor subsequently treated the KKW Beauty mogul to a private dinner on the roof of Campania on Staten Island, where they were able to enjoy a romantic dinner sans security. We then broke the news that Kim brought Davidson as her plus-one to Simon Huck’s birthday party at Zero Bond.

“They were smiling and laughing a lot and seemed genuinely affectionate with each other,” an insider told us at the time, adding that “there was no Kravis-style PDA” in reference to Kim’s sister Kourtney Kardashian’s showy romance with fiancé Travis Barker.

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson

While Kim is busy with Davidson, her estranged husband, Kanye West, has been dating model Vinetria.

West and Vinetria’s romance appeared to take a more serious turn when the rapper, 44, and the social media influencer, 22, attended their first public event together: his Donda Academy’s debut basketball game in Minneapolis.

Page Six exclusively reported in bluetooth headphones January that Kim was leaving Ye, with whom she shares four children: North, 8, Saint, 5, Chicago, 3, and Psalm, 2. She filed for divorce in February.

Davidson, for his part, was previously engaged to Ariana Grande and has also dated Cazzie David, Kate Beckinsale and Phoebe Dynevor.

DAREDEVILS WHO LOST THEIR LIVES DURING INSANE STUNTS

base jumper

Human beings have been craving adrenaline since the first caveman dared the first lion to “catch me if you can.” That’s not to say that we all crave danger, but it’s so much a part of our DNA that if we don’t chase those thrills ourselves, we enjoy watching other people do it. If we didn’t, YouTube probably wouldn’t exist. But the awful truth about daredevils and their envelope-pushing stunts is that one day, their luck will run out, tragedy will strike, and loved ones will have to pay the price. Here are a few notorious examples of stunts that went horribly wrong.

WING-SUITS ARE DANGEROUS EVEN IF YOU’RE EXPERIENCED
In another tragic base jumping accident, well-known climber Dean Potter and his friend Graham Hunt died in Yosemite National Park when they jumped from Taft Point wearing wing-suits and crashed into a rocky ridgeline that Yosemite’s chief of staff described as “spiny skechers outlet like a stegosaurus.” This accident highlights the sad fact that experience doesn’t necessarily protect you — Potter had made the exact same jump at least 20 times, and Hunt was probably similarly experienced.

Dean Potter was well-known in the extreme sports community and particularly well-known in Yosemite, where climbing is a popular sport. He was the first person to “free climb” (using only hands and feet, although safety ropes can also be used) three-quarters of the way up Half Dome, the granite peak that is roughly 4,800 feet above Yosemite Valley.

Potter was also controversial — he’d been kicked out of Yosemite a couple of times for such crimes as sleeping in the meadow and breaking the stems off a head of broccoli in the park store. More telling, he’d lost a couple of sponsorships because of his increasingly risky stunts, such as climbing the Delicate Arch in the Arches National Park, and base jumping, which was just a little too dangerous for the popular brand Clif Bar to stomach.

Other climbers expressed regret at Potter’s death, but the words of fellow climber Doug Robinson may have summed it up best: “We’re very sad … but not very surprised. He was pushing the envelope all his life.”

KYLE LEE STOCKING WENT SWINGING

worlds largest rope swing youtube video
You know how television shows about daredevils always have that standard “don’t try this at home” disclaimer? If only YouTube had the same requirement for their daredevil videos. Although seriously, just because some caption says “don’t try this at home” doesn’t mean people aren’t going to try dangerous things at home.

According to ABC News, in March 2013, Kyle Lee Stocking attempted to duplicate a feat he saw on YouTube. If the stunt had gone as planned, the 22-year-old would have swung beneath the 110-foot Corona arch near Moab, Utah, after jumping off the top. But bluetooth headphones he misjudged the length of the rope he was using, and instead of swinging he struck the ground. The impact killed him.

The tragedy highlighted a growing problem of people trying to imitate stunts they see on YouTube, from swallowing cinnamon (which can give you a collapsed lung) to jumping off moving vehicles.

While YouTube claims to prohibit content that encourages dangerous behavior, the video that inspired the fatal stunt is alive and well as of this writing. And still no “don’t try this at home” warning, either.

LIM BA HAD A HEART ATTACK WHILE LITERALLY COOKING HIMSELF IN A STEAMER

The human capacity for dreaming up bizarre stunts is perhaps only surpassed by the public’s desire to watch people do bizarre stunts, which is a pretty lethal combo when you think about it. In October 2017, Malaysian magician Lim Ba attempted a “human steam” stunt, which basically involved him sitting inside a giant wok with some rice and sweet corn. If the stunt went well, Lim would come out unscathed with some ready-to-eat grains, presumably to pass out to onlookers or something.

Lim was a veteran of this particular stunt — he’d been performing it for more than a decade, and his record was 75 minutes, according to the Independent. But he was also approaching 70, was being treated for high blood pressure, and had recently sperry shoes had a heart bypass. So really, he wasn’t in peak physical condition at the time of his death.

Lim started knocking on the inside of the wok about 30 minutes into the performance. When onlookers removed the cover they found him unconscious, and by the time medical personnel arrived he was dead. The cause of death was a heart attack, though police also noted Lim had second-degree burns.

IT WORKED FROM A PLANE, BUT NOT FROM THIS BRIDGE

perrine memorial railroad bridge

In yet another base jumping tragedy, 73-year-old James E. Hickey of Claremont, California, jumped off the Perrine Memorial Bridge (pictured) in Twin Falls, Idaho, and died. First, he set his parachute on fire. According to USA Today, Hickey was attempting to recreate a stunt he’d already successfully performed, only the last time he’d jumped from an airplane instead of from a 500-foot bridge.

If the stunt had gone as planned, Hickey would have set his first parachute on fire, then disconnected it, then deployed a second chute in order to float to safety. But something went wrong, and the second chute opened too late. A video showed a fireball engulfing both chute and jumper. According to the coroner’s report, Hickey died of blunt-force trauma.

Hickey was an experienced base jumper who had completed more than 1,000 jumps over a 10-year period, thus proving once again that experience can’t save you when the base jumping grim reaper finally decides your time is up.

SAILENDRA NATH ROY USED HIS HAIR FOR EVERYTHING

sailendra nath roy

Some people are known for their super-strong arms. Some people are known for their super-strong legs. Sailendra Nath Roy was known for his super-strong hair. According to the BBC, throughout his pseudo-career as a daredevil (he also worked as a driver for the police department) he did a lot of crazy stunts with his hair, including pulling a narrow gauge train with his ponytail, which he claimed to keep strong with mustard oil and incredible feats of hair strength.

Roy held the Guinness record for farthest distance salomon boots on a zipline using hair, so he wasn’t new to the hairy circuit. But the 48-year-old might not have been in the best physical shape, and when something went wrong during his final performance, his heart was unable to withstand the stress.

Spectators said he stopped moving down the zipline after about 300 feet. He struggled for close to 30 minutes, shouting for help, but there were no emergency personnel on hand and no one could understand what he was saying. At the end of the half hour, he became still. When paramedics finally cut him down he’d already died … of a “massive heart attack.”

Officials said Roy didn’t have permission to do the stunt, and if he’d had a professional support team on hand the outcome might have been different. Instead, the stunt he promised his wife would be his last really did end up being his last, but for all the wrong reasons.

Sharon Stone may have more than basic instincts when it comes to kissing her co-stars. While she has had her fair share of on-screen make-out partners, the actress told Andy Cohen on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live that “Robert DeNiro was for sure the best kisser.” And she seemed pretty confident in her answer, too.

Stone starred opposite the iconic actor in the 1995 Scorsese mob movie Casino (via IMDb). Still, she admitted that, while the kiss was “far and away” her favorite of all time, her memory might be clouded by her immense admiration for the man.

She elaborated to Cohen that she was so excited to have the opportunity to “sit across the table” from him, collaborate, and keep on pace with his talent. “I was just so madly in love with him as an actress to start with that he probably could have hit me in the head with a hammer and I would’ve been ‘Oh yeah!'”

Nevertheless, whether the two were getting hot and heavy behind the scenes or just making nice for the cameras, the pair kept it professional and hid any personal feelings, however amorous — or not. Badgley told Cohen, “I think we should both pat ourselves skechers outlet on the back for getting through it because, you know, anything is complicated in that way, and we handled it.”

Nevertheless, the actress, mom, and ex-wife of singer Robin Thicke got bashful when asked about her best on-screen kiss during an interview on Live With Kelly and Ryan.

She tried to avoid the question, responding that “they’re all really good because they’re kisses and they’re cute.” But she eventually succumbed to the celebrity peer pressure, nodding to her Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol co-star: “It’s not the best but it was great. I will tell you that the kiss from Tom Cruise was a surprise.” What is more, she even complimented what must be a credit to his personal hygiene habits, saying, “He had amazing breath. It wasn’t minty — it was just perfect.”
