Oprah’s advice stuck with ‘Wrinkle’ star Storm Reid

  • The talk show legend and media tycoon became a mentor for the Atlanta-born newcomer Storm Reid

LOS ANGELES: She hasn’t yet turned 15 but child star Storm Reid is wise enough to have picked up some life lessons already — the most important of them from Oprah Winfrey.

The talk show legend and media tycoon became a mentor for the Atlanta-born newcomer on the set of Disney sci-fi fantasy “A Wrinkle in Time,” which came out in March.

“She said, ‘Don’t waste energy on things you can’t change in life when you could be using that energy on something else positive.’ It’s my life motto,” Reid told AFP.

Speaking on the red carpet at the MTV Movie and Television Awards in Los Angeles, Reid said she “fangirled a lot” when she met Winfrey.

Unkind critics might point out that Oprah’s advice would work well in the case of “Wrinkle,” which was panned by critics and made losses estimated at up to $186 million.

Ryan Reynolds teases ‘Deadpool 2’ extended cut at Comic-Con

SAN DIEGO: Ryan Reynolds has made a triumphant return to San Diego Comic-Con Saturday to promote the release of a “Deadpool 2” extended cut.
Speaking to a packed Hall H audience, Reynolds said that the first “Deadpool” was made because of the people in the room.
The enthusiasm around footage shown at the comic book convention in 2014 convinced the studio to make it.
The second movie, Reynolds deadpanned, was made because of “corporate greed and a splash of destiny.” The two films have made over $1.5 billion worldwide.
The “Deadpool 2: Super Duper Cut” features alternate jokes, extended and deleted scenes. Reynolds said that they shot so many alternate versions of every joke that they could basically release a different film.
“Deadpool 2” will be available on blu-ray on Aug. 21.
