Robert Fairchild ends ballet career with confetti, flowers

Silvery confetti has rained down on the stage at New York City Ballet for dancer Robert Fairchild, who ended his ballet career by handing out roses to each of his fellow dancers.

The Tony nominee for "An American in Paris" will now focus full-time on theater and film.

For his final ballet Sunday evening, 30-year-old Fairchild performed George Balanchine's "Duo Concertant" with a longtime partner, ballerina Sterling Hyltin. After curtain calls, in grand ballet tradition, a succession of dancers came out to congratulate him. Usually the dancers bring bouquets; Fairchild tweaked the tradition a bit by handing out roses himself.

Fairchild's next projects include acting and dancing in a production of "Brigadoon," and choreographing and starring in a production of "Mary Shelley's Frankenstein."

Trump campaign faces subpoena in assault lawsuit

President Donald Trump's presidential campaign has been subpoenaed for records related to past sexual assault allegations against Trump — charges the president on Monday dismissed as "made-up stuff."

Lawyers for Summer Zervos, a former contestant on "The Apprentice," asked the campaign in March to preserve any records in its possession concerning Zervos or other women who accused Trump of misconduct. Zervos says Trump kissed and groped her against her will in 2007.

During a Rose Garden press conference, Trump dismissed the allegations as politically motivated.

"All I can say is it's totally fake news — just fake. It's fake, it's made-up stuff. And it's disgraceful what happens," he said. "That happens in the world of politics."

Zervos' request was filed as part of a defamation lawsuit. Lawyers for Trump For President agreed in April to hold on to any related records. Those sorts of subpoenas are routine in civil litigation.

It isn't clear yet whether the case will advance far enough that the Trump campaign will be required to actually turn over those records.

Trump's lawyers have asked that the case be dismissed, or delayed until he is no longer president.

Three legal scholars who, 20 years ago, submitted a brief to the Supreme Court arguing that President Bill Clinton wasn't immune from a sexual harassment suit filed by Paula Jones, filed a similar brief in the Zervos case last month.

The law professors, Richard Primus, of the University of Michigan Law School, and Justin Florence and Larry Schwartztol, of The Protect Democracy Project, said Trump also isn't immune from the Zervos lawsuit.

"No one in our nation is above the law, not even the president," they wrote.

A decision on whether the lawsuit can proceed is not expected for some time.

‘Titanic’ actress Kate Winslet says there’s one character she’d play again

Actress Kate Winslet has played many impressive roles through her long career, but there is one character that she would love to go back and play again.

>> Read more trending news

The actress told Entertainment Weekly that if were up to her, she would go back and play Clementine from her 2004 film “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” in which she starred alongside Jim Carrey.

Winslet said:

“Actually, she’s one I’d love to play again, because it was just so much fun. And the possibilities for the hair colors were just endless. Wouldn’t you like to see Clementine as a 42-year-old woman? I’d love to know what happened to her. I love the idea that she just let herself get really fat and just totally let go of her hangups about her body and just indulged in everything that made her feel happy. And more hair colors and more crazy clothes! I just think that could’ve been fun.”

Winslet also revealed that she hardly ever goes back and watches any of her performances after doing a movie. She said a few years ago, she sat down with her daughter and director Peter Jackson to watch “Heavenly Creatures,” Winslet’s first movie.

“Peter kept turning to me and saying, ‘You know, this is a bloody good film! This is really a bloody good film we made! I mean, bloody hell! When you think about some of the (expletive) that’s out there, Christ! This is a really good film!’” Winslet said.

“I was like, ‘Calm down, Pete, calm down!’ And I think he had a moment of allowing himself, beyond ‘The Lord of the Rings’ and ‘The Hobbit,’ to just be very, very proud of a film he’d made, this tiny film that we’d made 25 years ago,” she added.
