GQ Honors James Gandolfini in ‘Men of the Year’ Issue

jamesg
James Gandolfini is gone, but not forgotten. GQ magazine has composed a touching cover and feature, honoring the late actor who died in June 2013.

Gandolfini’s longtime friend, German watchmaker Michael Kobold, shared stories about the actor and his own feelings about Gandolfini as well.

Check out what he had to say about Gandolfini below.

On James’ mercurial temperament:
“I’d been scanning ‘The New York Times’ for hours when Jim shuffled out, grumbled at me, and sat down to red the ‘New York Post.’ For five minutes or so, we had a one-sided conversation… Jim’s grip on the paper began to tighten until he was practically crumpling it. ‘So help me God, if you ask me one more f***ing question, I will get you deported, you f***ing German!’ he yelled. Jim’s temper could run hot, but it also passed quickly. Ten minutes later, after some coffee, he smiled at me. ‘I’m sorry, Kobold, but you can be so f***ing annoying in the morning.’ ‘I’ll try to be less happy tomorrow,’ I told him. ‘No, don’t do that. Just don’t direct your happiness towards me.'”

On Michael’s difficulties to bring James’ body home from Italy:
“The initial news in Rome wasn’t good: Paticia Hill, the U.S. vice consul at the embassy told me it would be as long as a week before the body could be cleared. Jim had passed on Wednesday night and was already at the morgue by the time I got to Rome the next morning. After an autopsy, he would be held until we could get his remains repatriated. But in the near term, progress was looking grim.”

On Michael addressing James’ death:
“The minute that door opened, it was like stepping into a movie scene: There were probably ten TV cameras, twenty still photographers, and so many journalists that every seat in the small meeting room was filled. The spillover was standing along the walls. If you watch the tape, I seem cold and wooden – the prototypical German! – but I was basically frozen with fear, capable only of reading a prepared statement. ‘Today, we received the results of the autopsy, which stated he died of a heart attack, of natural causes.’ I read. ‘Once we have the clearance, we will put him on a flight to America. It is up to the Italian authorities to decide how quickly.’ I took no questions. And then I had to do it again the next day and the one after.”

Scarlett Johansson Talks Relationships & Porn with MARIE CLAIRE UK

Scartlett Johansson isn’t shy and it shows.

The actress covers the newest issue of Marie Claire UK, where she talks about relationships and why women enjoy porn as well. Check out some of what she had to say below.

 

On her engagement announcement:
“My friend emailed me and said, ‘Wow, it’s so great that you’re about to go do this huge invasive press tour for 10 days. He said, ‘That won’t bring up every awkward question you don’t want to answer and won’t’ And I was like, you know, it is what it is.”

On her views on relationships:
“I can certain relate to this habit of wanting your partner to just kind of fit into this mold you’ve made for them. We do place pressure on somebody to just do it the way we think it should be done. It takes growth and searching to understand that it is the difference in relationships that enrich and strength the relationship, that helps us evolve as people and partners. I understand that conviction; I know that is something I am guilty of.”

On her thoughts about porn:
“I think porn like anything else, can be enjoyed. It can be productive for both men and women. If I found out my boyfriend watched that much porn I would be totally flabbergasted, for sure.”

Check out some of what she had to say to the magazine below.

On her food journal:
“You know how you feel when you get full? Well, I don’t get full. I can eat a lot. Mike and I were in Italy for 10 days and I put on 8 pounds. So in real life, I have to make sure I’m not eating just to eat.”

On trusting husband Mike Fisher:
“If he goes to a bar with his friends, a tabloid is going to report about it. Same goes for me. Trust is what it is. Either you trust someone or you don’t. And I’ve never trusted anymore more than I trust Mike.”

On losing weight after American Idol:
“It was on the Idol tour [after I won]. I put on a lot of weight [during the show] because we were locked in a room all day with a craft service table. I was bored so I was just eating. I was never overweight, but I feel better with myself.”
