4 Popular Celebrities That use Psychics

by

We’ve all done it at some point. Whether we believe in the magical and mysterious or not, we’ve scanned our star sign entry with interest to see what fate is supposed to have in store for us, or gone to visit a psychic, feeling the shiver down our spines.

Yet the occult undeniably has a hold on us. Even the most cynical individuals can’t help but feel goose bumps rise along their skin when their stars align, and celebrities are no different. Though it might seem as if they already have everything they could dream of, that doesn’t stop them from turning to some unusual sources for help and guidance.
Here are 4 popular celebrities that use psychics and who are known to frequent the fortune teller’s tent.

Brad Pitt


There’s no denying that Brad Pitt is among the most famous actors of his age. One of the greatest heartthrobs to grace the silver screen, he’s made women around the world swoon thanks to his unearthly good looks and charismatic character. But despite seeming to have it all, he’s known to visit a well-known celebrity psychic on a regular basis. According to reports on the Telegraph, the aforementioned mystic, Ron Bard, warned him that ex-wife Angelina Jolie would leave him two years before their marriage broke down, after previously having revealed to Pitt that he would meet somebody life-changing while still married to his former spouse Jennifer Aniston.

Angelina Jolie

As a write-up at TheCircle explains, psychics can do more than merely foretell the future. Some of them are also able to communicate with those who are no longer around, others help interpret the past or make decisions about the present, and one famous name who’s availed herself of such a service is Angelina Jolie. Like her ex-husband, Jolie and members of her family are said to have used psychics to communicate with her deceased mother, Marcheline Bertrand.

Cameron Diaz


Cameron Diaz has spoken on multiple occasions about her belief in the abilities of psychics so that’s why we added her to our list of celebrities that use psychics.  She has reportedly turned to such individuals for advice on numerous situations, including her love life. Known to visit Mrs. Grace’s in West Hollywood, Diaz has kept mum about the specific guidance she’s been given, but judging by her repeated visits and vocal support of spirituality, one can only surmise that she sees some merit in what she’s been told.

George Clooney

Like Brad Pitt, George Clooney is an indisputable heartthrob, and like Pitt, he’s also turned to the mystical and mysterious to help him through some difficult patches in his life – most famously, the death of his beloved potbellied pig, Max. When Max passed away, Clooney was said to be inconsolable, so he approached a psychic for help in dealing with his grief. The animal communicator helped him to reconnect with his deceased partner-in-crime so that he could heal and move forward with his life.

Whether you believe in psychics or not, it’s only fair to recognize the comfort that this special sort of service can provide.  So far as we’re concerned, anything that can help, console, or comfort people has to be a good thing. In fact, we might just be tempted to book an appointment ourselves! After all we just learned about 4 celebrities that use psychics to enrich their lives.

George Clooney is the Highest-Paid Actor in the World and Here’s Why

by

According to a recent report by Forbes, George Clooney is the highest-paid actor in the world in 2018. Between June 2017 and June 2018, he earned a reported $239 million. Compared to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who holds the title of the second highest-paid actor, Clooney made about two times as much this last year. However, we haven’t seen Clooney in a film since 2016, when he started in the crime thriller Money Monster. Despite this fact, Clooney has still managed to climb to the top-paid list. But how?

Other Endeavors Bring in the Big Bucks for Actors

Yes, higher paid actors make the big bucks with films. In fact, Dwayne Johnson made $124 million for some of his films, like Baywatch and Jumanji. But the fact of the matter is, stars like Clooney aren’t just making their income from hit films anymore. Clooney has dominated the top of the income charts due to his successful tequila company, Casamigos. In fact, George Clooney is selling his company Casamigos to Diageo for as much as a billion dollars. In an email to CNBC, Clooney states, “If you asked us four years ago if we had a billion dollar company, I don’t think we would have said yes. This reflects Diageo’s belief in our company and our belief in Diageo. But we’re not going anywhere. We’ll still be very much a part of Casamigos. Starting with a shot tonight. Maybe two.”

Why You Should See ‘Money Monster’

by

Money Monster hit theaters this past Friday, and what a ride it was. The movie takes place during the time span of one day, as Wall Street guru and TV show host Lee Gates is held hostage by an angry investor who lost all his money due to one of Gates’ faulty investment suggestions. What initially drew me to this movie was the cast. As a big fan of both George Clooney and Julia Roberts, Money Monster immediately interested me. However, I would have never anticipated the emotional rollercoaster this movie would take me on. From the tremendous story line and terrific acting, to the criticism of our current society, Money Monster tackles it all. This is, without a doubt, a must-see movie for everyone.

Here are some highlights from this phenomenal film.

Money Monster

Collider


1. And The Award Goes To…
Both Julia Roberts and George Clooney give incredible performances in the film. Clooney’s portrayal of Lee Gates is at times both funny and heart-wrenching. The way Gates evolves as a character throughout the movie is conveyed powerfully by Clooney. Julia Roberts plays Patty, the director of the show Money Monster. She’s the guiding force throughout the movie, talking in Gates’ earpiece, leading him through the hostage situation. She gives nothing short of an amazing performance, truly expressing the bravery and passion her character possesses.

2. SUSPENSE
I was on the edge of my seat throughout the entire film. I was really impressed the way the film was able to keep the suspense heightened throughout the entire time. There isn’t a single dull moment. It’s so suspenseful you forget you’re actually watching a movie. You feel a part of it, continually anticipating the next big moment. The film keeps you captivated the entire way through as the hostage situation progresses.

3. Right and Wrong
This film blurs the line between right and wrong. Kyle Budwell, played by Jack O’Connell, holds Lee Gates hostage after losing all of his money in a bad investment. Although what Kyle is doing is wrong, you can’t help but sympathize with him. He lost everything due to the lying and greed of Wall Street tycoons. It’s heartbreaking to watch Kyle’s desperate pursuit of an answer for why he lost his money. O’Connell gives an outstanding performance of Kyle Budwell, eliciting sympathy for his character despite the wrong he is doing.

4. Mad World
There’s a lot wrong with our society, the things we value, our media, and the way we treat one another. Money Monster is able to critique all of these. We’re shown just how horrible the greed of Wall Street can be. We see how the elite rich get richer, in this case by stealing from others. The film also critiques the media. Throughout the film the often show other television shows that are talking about the hostage situation. Many of them are laughing at the situation, making jokes, referencing how this will boost their social media, and so on. The film also shows how it seems we have lost much of our empathy. We see businessmen in a bar watching the hostage situation of TV, making jokes and laughing about it. They had no concern for Kyle Budwell or Lee Gates. To them, it was all entertainment. There’s even a moment in the film where Lee and Kyle are out in the streets moving from one building to another. Kyle is still holding Lee hostage with both a gun and a bomb, yet the people on the streets are crowding around them taking pictures. Money Monster does a superb job at really holding the mirror to our society, allowing us to see that we care too much about appearances and what is for show.

72nd Annual Golden Globe Winners

by

The 72nd Annual Golden Globe Awards saw big wins for films Boyhood, The Theory of Everything, and Birdman—but also for rising star Gina Rodriguez. The 30-year-old’s portrayal of Jane Villanueva in the CW’s new series Jane the Virgin won her her first Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy, beating out like Lena Dunham (Girls), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep), Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie), and Taylor Schilling (Orange Is the New Black).
“This award is so much more than myself. It represents a culture that wants to see themselves as heroes,” Rodriguez said, teary-eyed, during her acceptance speech. “My father used to tell me to say every morning that today is going to be a great day. I can and I will. Well, Dad, today’s a great day. I can and I did.”
EddieRedmayne
It was also a big night for Eddie Redmayne, who won Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama for his incredibly heartbreaking portrayal of Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything. The 33-year-old English actor beat out other excellent actors including Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game), Steve Carell (Foxcatcher), David Oyelowo (Selma), and Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler).
A noteworthy moment of the night was when Transparent won for Best TV Comedy and director Jill Soloway gave a touching acceptance speech about the transgender community. “I want to thank the trans community. They are our family and they make this possible,” she said. “This award is dedicated to the memory of Leelah Alcorn, and too many trans people who died too young.”
George Clooney was also presented the Cecil B. DeMille award for his “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment,” and Kevin Spacey finally won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a TV Series, Drama, for his role in the Netflix-exclusive series House of Cards.

10 Celebs You Didn’t Know Have Been Behind Bars

by

Celebrities and brushes with the law, it’s not an uncommon news story in those glossy magazines or a trending hashtag on Twitter. We all know of the regular offenders but are there any celebs out there who have been in jail or arrested, who you might not have expected?
We’ve saved you the time spent searching to find an inmate with Jail Exchange, although it is a great site if you do need to locate someone behind bars, and have put together a quick top ten list of the surprising celebrities to have spent time inside…
bruno mars jail 10. Bruno Mars
The smooth singing, lady charmer of the music world was arrested and charged in 2010, with felony drug possession after a concert in Las Vegas. Well, we don’t think that fun personality trait will be used in any of his pick-up lines any time soon.
9. George Clooney
The silver fox was arrested for demonstrating against Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir in 2012, as the President is believed to have committed genocide. Whilst George and his Dad were taken into custody, their demonstrations were reasonably understandable.
8. Paul McCartney
The former Beatles star was arrested and held for 10 days in Japan for possession of 8 ounces of marijuana, which authorities discovered in his suitcase at the airport.
7. Chris Pine
Swoon worthy Chris Pine, the leading face of the Star Trek franchise, once tested positive on a breath test in New Zealand and pleaded guilty to drink driving in court. He was fined and banned from driving for six months, now we hope this ban doesn’t apply to space craft, otherwise the Star Trek universe is in big trouble with a Captain Kirk unable to drive.
martha stewart jail time6. Christian Slater
A baby faced Christian Slater spent 90 days in prison, followed by three months enforced rehab, after he assaulted his girlfriend and fought with police, under the influence of drugs.
5. Tim Allen
The star of the Santa Claus movies and the hit sitcom Home Improvement served a couple years in prison for drug trafficking.  It seems Santa actually loved delivering Christmas presents to all of the naughty people.  What was he delivering?  Well let’s just say Tim pled guilty to carrying 1.4 lbs. of cocaine!
4. Wesley Snipes
The hybrid vampire slayer and action hero was arrested and spent three years in prison for tax evasion.
3. Martha Stewart
The homemaker and craft genius Martha Stewart, who has made a business out of her incredible talent for making beautiful things, was sent to prison for five months for lying to federal investigators after being questioned over corporate fraud. Apparently her time in prison didn’t affect her career at all, in fact when she got out she hosted television shows and wrote two new books.
2. Matthew McConaghey
Another star who dabbled with drugs and paid the price is Matthew McConaghey, who is now best known for roles in Magic Mike and Dallas Buyers Club. He was apparently found by police in the early hours of the morning, after complaints about noise at his home, naked and playing the bongos. McConaghey was held in jail overnight and apparently when asked about the experience said: “I don’t want to rent a place there, but it was a nice stay for the night.”
1. Mark Wahlberg
Our final, and most serious offence, on the list was charged against actor Mark Wahlberg. Wahlberg was a drug dealer, a member of a gang and was hooked on cocaine. At the age of 16 he attacked two Vietnamese men in the street, in an unprovoked attack, permanently blinding one.
Wahlberg was charged with attempted murder, but this was changed later to criminal contempt and a sentence of ten years. He pleaded guilty and was only sentenced for two years, of which he served 45 days. After his stint inside he decided to turn his life around and formed Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, before later becoming the actor we know (and love?) today.

George Clooney Gets Married

by

George Clooney lovers of the world unite— and shed a tear for this bittersweet moment in history as George Clooney gets married! Never did the female population think they’d see the day that George Clooney would turn in his bachelor card and get married— again. The engagement to, human rights lawyer and now wife, Amal Alamuddin was a shock to everyone, but to officially have a Mrs. Clooney in Hollywood is unreal. After the plethora of stunning beauties of his past and well— him proclaiming that he wouldn’t marry again after his divorce from wife of four years, Talia Balsam in 1993, (admitting he “wasn’t very good at [marriage]”) this wasn’t a day anyone would have expected.

    George and Amal:

With Clooney 17 years Alamuddin’s senior and seeming to only have six to seven months of dating under their belts before Clooney popped the question, the two were dating, engaged and married all within less than a year. Talk about a whirlwind romance! The two celebrated their nuptials on September 27th in Venice, Italy. So beautiful, yet devastating at the same time. Sorry ladies, Clooney is officially off the market, but feel free to bask in his glory days of bachelorhood below:

We here are Cliché wish him and the Mrs. the best and anxiously await the possibility of them expanding their family in the future! With that being said, now that George Clooney is married and Ryan Gosling now a father, what leading man in Hollywood will the ladies fawn over? Hmm…
