Christopher Nolan Names The 1 Line From His Past Films That He’s Still ‘Plagued By’

Christopher Nolan Names The 1 Line From His Past Films That He’s Still ‘Plagued By’

Between Inception, his Batman trilogy and, of course, the Oscar-nominated Oppenheimer, director and screenwriter Christopher Nolan is responsible for some of the 21st century’s most iconic on-screen moments. However, the British filmmaker has admitted there’s one piece of dialogue from a past work of his that he is “plagued by”. “I’m plagued by a line from The Dark Knight, and I’m plagued by it because I didn’t write it,” he recently admitted to Deadline. “My brother [Jonathan Nolan, with whom he co-wrote the Batman film] wrote it. It kills me, because it’s the line that most resonates. And at the time, I didn’t even understand it.” In case you’re curious, Nolan is referring to the line “you either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain”, delivered in the film by Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent, otherwise known as Two-Face.

‘He’s very controversial, isn’t he?’: how Lee Anderson’s constituents reacted to his comments about Sadiq Khan | Conservatives

‘He’s very controversial, isn’t he?’: how Lee Anderson’s constituents reacted to his comments about Sadiq Khan | Conservatives

In his Nottinghamshire constituency, Lee Anderson has long been considered a Marmite character, attracting staunch supporters and vehement critics alike, and the reaction to his latest comments proved no different. Some said they felt Anderson had been punished unfairly for his statements about the London mayor on Friday, which have been labelled Islamophobic and led to him losing the Conservative whip. Others said they were horrified by his words and believed his suspension from the Tory party had been a long time coming. “It was bang out of order. He’s an embarrassment,” said James Bond, 40, who was out buying supplies for his latest job, building a play area for a nearby SEN children’s centre. “We need proper grown-up politics and I think his days in power are numbered around here. I certainly won’t be voting for him and this has been a long time coming in my opinion.” James Bond: ‘It was bang out of order.

Trump says he ‘wouldn’t protect’ Prince Harry if he’s reelected

Trump says he ‘wouldn’t protect’ Prince Harry if he’s reelected

Former President Trump says that he “wouldn’t protect” Prince Harry if he wins the White House in November. “He betrayed the queen. That’s unforgivable,” Trump told the U.K.’s Daily Express in an interview over the weekend. Amid an ongoing lawsuit filed by the conservative think tank the Heritage Foundation against the Department of Homeland Security over whether the department followed relative rules in granting the 39-year-old British royal his visa, Trump accused the Biden administration of “protecting Harry.” “I wouldn’t protect him,” Trump said. “He would be on his own if it was down to me,” the 45th president added. Harry and his wife, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, stepped down as full-time working members of Britain’s royal family in 2020 and moved to California. Last year, Harry released a tell-all book about his life as a member of the royal family, called “Spare.” The memoir detailed his struggles with grief following the 1997 death of his mother, Princess Diana, his criticism of the British press and his strained relationship with his family. Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, died in 2022 at …

‘He’s getting a lot done’: Cameron’s first 100 days as foreign secretary impress | David Cameron

‘He’s getting a lot done’: Cameron’s first 100 days as foreign secretary impress | David Cameron

With the Conservative party lagging 20 points behind in the polls, enduring crushing byelection defeats and weekly controversies, it’s a difficult time to be a government minister. One figure who appears to glide effortlessly above the mire though is David Cameron, who was unexpectedly brought back to the political frontline in November as foreign secretary. He marked 100 days in office last week and has by all accounts loved every minute of it. The Foreign Office appears to love him back. Despite his considerable political baggage, the prevailing view in the department is that having Cameron at the helm has been a shot in the arm for UK diplomacy, insiders said. Officials are seemingly impressed with his energy and work ethic. Diplomats say he is a natural mediator who knows how to interact with foreign dignitaries and inject humour at the right moments.

Man Questions If He’s Being Ungrateful When His Wife Buys Him Gifts That Are Actually For Her

Man Questions If He’s Being Ungrateful When His Wife Buys Him Gifts That Are Actually For Her

Even if receiving gifts isn’t your primary love language, they are a great way to show your partner just how much you hear and understand them. One husband admitted to feeling “disrespected” after noticing the lack of thought that went into the gifts he received from his wife. Rather than presents targeted to his likes and wants, his wife buys him gifts that he has no interest in, and it’s left him feeling hurt and unheard. He questioned if he was being ungrateful when his wife bought him gifts that were ‘actually for her.’ Posting to the r/AITA subreddit, the man explained he’s never happy with the gifts that his wife buys for him. He recalled that a few years ago, his wife bought him a hammock for his birthday, despite her being the only one to ever express interest in one. He brushed it off, admitting that he found it odd, but thought that she must have simply missed what he might like.  Photo: altafulla / Shutterstock RELATED: Man Refuses To Marry His Girlfriend Until She …

Sign up to Roisin O’Connor’s free weekly newsletter Now Hear This for the inside track on all things music Get our Now Hear This email for free Pete Doherty has shared an update on his health months after revealing he is “a very sick man”. The Libertines singer has returned for a new album alongside his bandmate Carl Barat and, in a new interview, the pair reflected on the drug-fuelled public antics he was notorious for in the Noughties and 2010s. Doherty also addressed concerns surrounding his health after telling interviewer Louis Theroux he feels “death is lurking” after years of drug and alcohol abuse took their toll on his body, “I’ve battered it, haven’t I? I’ve f***ing caned it,” he told Theroux on BBC series Louis Theroux Interviews…, adding: “[The] heroin and the crack… I surrendered to that, and then it was cocaine and the smoking and the alcohol, and now it’s cheese and the saucisson, and the sugar in the tea.” Doherty said doctors have told him he needs to change his diet …

‘Am I surprised Pete Doherty is still alive? No, he’s too smart to die’: the Libertines on feuds, friendship – and their unlikely sober reunion | The Libertines

‘Am I surprised Pete Doherty is still alive? No, he’s too smart to die’: the Libertines on feuds, friendship – and their unlikely sober reunion | The Libertines

I have done battle with the Libertines three times over the past 19 years. Only I haven’t, not really. Two of the interviews were with Pete Doherty for projects away from the band that made him famous: Babyshambles and the Puta Madres. The first was in a mangy London hotel bedroom in 2005 – he was sitting on a motorbike, revving it up, when he was awake. Much of the time he was asleep. He was 26, surrounded by drugs paraphernalia, and had daubed “ROUGH TRADE” on the wall in his own blood. Last time we met, four years ago, he was in better nick and more sociable. That said, he was still smoking crack, threw a punch that just missed me, kissed my forehead by way of apology, and took me to his wreck of a house where he tried to flog me his possessions. He still had something about him: a wasted brilliance and surprising charm that he failed to hide, despite his best efforts. As for his soul brother and sparring partner …

If He Says These 8 Things, He’s Toxically Passive-Aggressive | Anna Thea

What is passive-aggressive behavior, and how can you spot the signs of a toxic relationship filled with passive aggression? Passive aggressive behavior is “characterized by indirect resistance to the demands of others and an avoidance of confrontation.” To figure out if you’re a victim of passive aggression, ask yourself these questions: Are you on an emotional roller coaster ride with someone in your life? Do you know a person who is friendly one day but withdraws the next? Does this person consistently avoid any emotionally intense conversations? Are you sometimes that person? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, chances are, you may be dealing with a passive-aggressive person or even showing signs of passive-aggressive behavior yourself. Passive-aggressive behavior does not support healthy connections, so it’s crucial to know how to recognize passive-aggressive traits — both in yourself and others. Do you notice yourself displaying these behaviors? Don’t beat yourself up about it because it’s not your fault. These behaviors have been passed down from generation to generation.

Spencer Cox during a meeting with governors from across the country at the White House on Feb. 23. Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images President Biden told governors on Friday that he is looking at options for executive action to curb the flow of migrants across the southern U.S. border but said that existing laws and a lack of funding were limiting his choices. The White House has been considering its next steps since Republicans in Congress backed away from a Senate compromise that would have empowered the administration to turn away migrants seeking asylum when certain thresholds were reached. The failed bill would have provided about $20 billion for border personnel — as well as aid for states and cities that have exhausted their resources while grappling with record numbers of asylum-seekers. The border has …
