Mick Jagger turned 80 years old yesterday. There was a big party in London where Mick was joined by three of his daughters, Jade, Elizabeth, and Georgia May, and also retired ballerina Melanie Hamrick. It was recently reported that they’re now engaged. They’ve been together since 2014 and had a son two years later. Melanie is 36. But I guess with Mick and Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, it’s an eternal sperm fountain of youth. That’s why they’re Leo’s heroes.


It was a party, I mean of course Leonardo DiCaprio was there. Leo never misses a party. And this party was probably extra inspirational for him since he can look to Mick the octogenarian and see his party future. Leo’s turning 50 next year, this is hope for him that he’ll still be partying for another 30-plus years. 

Other guests included Ronnie Wood, Lenny Kravitz, and Stella McCartney. 

Staying with the Leo connection though – Gigi Hadid wasn’t in London because she was in Malibu for Miu Miu. I love her outfit for this event. Just a simple black dress, white socks, and loafers. Nobody really knows whether or not Leo and Gigi are still dealing with each other but I feel like the speculation about whether or not they’re still together has convinced people that they are. 


In other Leo news though, on the professional front, let’s talk about Leo and the strike. Killers of the Flower Moon is scheduled for release October 6. It is expected to be a major Oscar contender. But before that, what about the press tour? At this point, some promotional activity would be either happening or being arranged – like magazine shoots and interviews, pieces to roll out in the weeks preceding the premiere. These kinds of activities are now off the table due to the work stoppage. 

Right now, with negotiations having broken down and no new meetings scheduled between the unions and the AMTPT, it doesn’t look like the strike is ending any time soon. More and more I’m hearing from several writers and actors who are personal friends that it’ll be December or maybe even January. Which means, for the fall releases, that there won’t be any promotions. If the strike is still happening in October, in Leo’s case, he and the cast will not be participating in junkets and certainly won’t be seen on red carpets…which… I’m sure for Leo that’s a bonus, because he hates publicity. But it would f-cking suck for Lily Gladstone, the star of Killers of the Flower Moon, to not have her big moment in the marketing spotlight.
