There was a scene in The Office in which Tim Canterbury, the benign sales rep played by Martin Freeman, compared his life to a roll of the dice. "My situation now may only be a three. If I jack that in, go for something bigger and better, I could easily roll a six," he told the programme's faux documentary maker. "I could also roll a one. OK? So I think … just leave the dice alone." Freeman, who will star alongside Benedict Cumberbatch in the eagerly awaited return on New Year's Day of BBC1's Sherlock, and as Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson's blockbuster sequel The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug next week, has just rolled a double six. It has been an extraordinary rise for the 42-year-old actor, who first sprang to fame in BBC2's The Office in 2001 as one half of the nation's favourite sweethearts, Tim and Dawn (Lucy Davis). "There's a brilliant ordinariness to Martin's character, an endearing low-level grumpiness, and he was able to tap into that [in The Office]," says the … [Read more...] about Martin Freeman: from Slough to Smaug – then back to Sherlock

In the past 10 years, the percentage of American marriages that end in divorce has fallen, and in a new paper, the University of Maryland sociologist Philip Cohen quantified the drop-off: Between 2008 and 2016, the divorce rate declined by 18 percent overall.After accounting for the rising average age of married Americans and other demographic shifts during that time, Cohen found “a less steep decline—8 percent—but the pattern is the same.” That is, the divorce rate in 2016 was still lower than one would have predicted if the demographics of married people were the same then as in 2008.When I asked Andrew Cherlin, a sociology professor at Johns Hopkins University, how to make sense of this trend, he opened his explanation with something of a koan: “In order to get divorced,” he said, “you have to get married first.”Marriage has become a trophy.The point he was making was that people with college degrees are now more likely to get married … [Read more...] about The Not-So-Great Reason Divorce Rates Are Declining
By Hannah Barnes - October 24, 2018 06:21 pm EDT Share 1 Comments 1 Kelly Ripa inadvertently caused a bit of controversy recently when husband Mark Consuelos uploaded a photo of his wife in a bikini while on vacation, calling Ripa "the sexy one." While many fans praised Ripa's figure, there were some trolls who felt the need to write that the 47-year-old Ripa shouldn't be wearing a bikini at all due to her age, no matter what her body looks like. The couple discussed the situation during a joint appearance on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday, April 24, noting that they were extremely confused by the backlash. “It was bizarre,” Consuelos said. “It’s like, what else are you supposed to wear to the beach?” Ripa agreed with her husband, wondering what, exactly, she should have worn instead. “I don’t know what I’m supposed to wear to the beach,” she said. “I mean, I don’t really know. I … [Read more...] about Kelly Ripa Responds to Bikini Shaming: ‘I Wasn’t in Synagogue’
