Who's News To ask a question, e-mail or cain-800-255-5463. BY LORRIE LYNCH Q . I caught the recent Screen Actors Guild awards on TNT, but I'm sorry • I missed your Webcast from backstage. Who did you see? Did the , stars answer questions from the Internet? LOBRAINE LEWIS, Se«i«s£fa,M(i , All the night's winners who sat down with me—Julia Roberts, Martin Sheen, Benicio Del Toro and more — thought it cool to take questions from viewers of our "enhanced TV" event, and they made award-show history as they did. Roberts, honored as best actress, wore a mile-wide smile, so pleased to be carrying tlie 25- pound Actor, as SAG's award is called. After the show, I ran into her sipping champagne with Benjamin Bratt, hidden away in a ladies lounge. Best actors in a di-ama Martin Sheen and Allison Janney of The West Wing —still critiquing their onstage speeches when they came by to talk — were so warm. Asked to share her proudest moment, Janney said reverently, "I'm pretty proud now." Sheen took time to meet our production staff. "Hi, I'm Martin," he'd say before shaking each hand. Such graciousness wasn't contagious. Sea; and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker, best female actor in a comedy series, was miffed when I asked what she thought of WiU & Grace beating Sex in the comedy ensemble category "What kind of question is that?" she snapped. "I'm disappointed, obviously" Then WiU & Grace's foursome stopped in, babbling among themselves so euphorically it was hard to get a word in. Among the most delightful stai-s was Billy EUiott's Jamie Bell, 15, who'd flown in from London with his mom and couldn't wait to see Russell Crowe, and former SAG president Patty Duke, who joined me in singing the theme song to her '60s sitcom. ^ THIS WEEK'S I BIRTHDAYS 4.15.01 Emma Thompson 42 4.16.01 Martin Lawrence 36 Diana Krai! 37 Ellen Barkin 46 Kareem Abdul- Jabbar 54 4,17.01 LeIaRochon 35 4.18.01 Melissa Joan Hart 25 Conan O'Brien 38 JaneLeeves 40 Eric Roberts 45 James Woods 54 Hayley Mills 55 4.19.01 Kate Hudson 22 Jennifer Esposito 29 Ashley Judd 33 Tim Curry 55 4.20.01 Allan Houston 30 Luther Vandross 50 Jessica Lange 52 4.21.01 Andie MacDowell 43 TonyDanza 50 Patti LuPone 52 iggy Pop 54 Queen Elizabeth 11 75 1 ^,1 enjoyed George Stephanopoulos' commentary for ABC during the election I and its aftermath. Does he do any public speaking? BARBARA BUKR, Los Aiz^efes I Once a frequent national speaker, Stephanopoulos, 40, tells us he'll cut back I because he's signed a fiill-time contract with ABC at a reported $500,000 a I year. "I'll probably only do 10 lectures this summer," says the political ana- I lyst, who also left a teaching post at Columbia University Last summer, he I quit dating Bebe Neuwirth (Frasier), and he won't say whether he's seeing i anyone new, yet he's an exceedingly eligible bachelor. Living in a penthouse I on Manhattan's Upper West Side, Stephanopoulos, who's dying to get a dog, I is a yoga fan and an avid reader of fiction. "Right now, I'm in a big Don I DeLillo phase." He also admits to "a R-ench fries addiction," but don't ask 1 him who has the best fries. "That would be revealing a bias." STEPHANOPOULOS WITH BEBE NEUWIRTH: THEY'RE OVER; HE'S READY FOR A WIFE. Q , Even before she won two 1996 Grammies for Sunny ' Came Home, Shawn Colvin was one of my favorite singer-songwriters. In the years since, I've heard little about her. Is she retired? NANCY OLIVER, Boise, IdaJw There's nothing retiring about her. In fact, expect to see and hear more of Colvin, 45, because Whole New You, her first fresh material since Sunny, hit stores three weeks ago, and she plans a summer tour. The Austin, Texas-based folk-rocker has not been idle all these years. She and her photographer husband, Mario Envin, had a daughter in 1998, and Colvin has been competing in triathlons, placing in the top five in her age group. LITTLE CALEDONIA'S MOM IS A MUSICIAN AND ATHLETE. Camryn Manheim is a woman who knows how to get what she wants. And lately she seems to have it all: a healthy 6-week-old son, Milo Manheim; a front- and-center storyline on ABC's The Practice; and, coming April 23 on ABC, a modern Cyrano de Bergeractale in which she stars and which she executive-produced. "The gravity of this movie for me is so layered," she told us from her home in Venice, Calif., just seven days after giving birth. It's the first for her as a producer, and the first movie in which her name is above the title — Kiss My Act. Viewership is crucial, she says, because success "will give me the power to continue to produce and continue to be a leading lady." She'll always be the leading lady in Milo's life, and for now Manheim, who delivered him two days before turning 40, is a single mother by choice. "It takes a village, and I have one; I've always had one. I could not have done this without the blessings of family and friends." ca Contributing: PATTY RHULE, EVELYN POITEVENT PRESIDENT, CEO & EDITOR: Marcia Bullard • PUBLISHER: Charles Gabrlelson • VICE PRESIDENTS: Dave Barber, Bill Coakley, Jim Hackett,Thomas Melsel Executive Editor Jack Curry Creetlve Manager Casey Shaw Assistant Manaslng Editor BrendaTumer SenlorEdltof$:CralghBarboza,GayleJoCarter,arolClumian,Con!itanceKurz,LorrieLynch,PrlKillaTotten Copy Chief: Tom Lent Copy Editor Patrida Joy Make A Difference Day Editor Pamela Brown Staff Writer Dennis McCafferty Reporter/Researchers: Michele Hatty, Frappa Stout EdltorialA$slstants:Tam€l(aLHick5,Chris A.Martin Publicist; Nichole Tillman Cbntiibutlng Edrtofs: Ram Anderson, Ken Burns,Jean Carper, Jean Shemian Chauky, Stephen Covey, Kenneth Davis, Dennle Hughes,WallyUmb,Lisa Llng,Jlm Louderback,Lou Manfredlnl,StephanleMansfleld,Tedd MKchell, Stephanie Oakes,Drew PInsky.Rula RazefcCokle Roberts, Steve Roberts, TavisSmlle/TerryStickels, Jeffrey Zastow Art Director Pamela Smith Design Director Leon Lawrence III AsslstantArtDlrector DianHolton DlractorofPhotography: Matt Mendelsohn Deputy Photo Editor Rebecca Roth Online: Amelia Stephenson, Irene Rudakewych Office Staff: Stephanie Keltz Advertising Office: 535 Madison Ave., New York, N.Y.I 0022 Edhorial Office: lOOOWilsonBlvd, Arlington, Va.22229 Phone; 1-800-487-2956 E-mail: Printed In the USA C Copyright 2001 USA WEEKEND, a division of Gannett Co.
