You don't really think about Dolly Parton as the kind of person who spent the '70s and '80s hanging out with the likes of Andy Warhol. She's a lot of bit country and he's, well he's Andy Warhol. They seem like they're from two separate worlds. Weirdly, one of the things that makes them so similar is their equal love of show business, after all, Warhol said that everyone in the world will get their 15 minutes of fame.

When Warhol took this photo of Parton he also conducted an interview with her that's as weird as you can imagine. Aside from talking to her about clothes (natch), Warhol asks Parton what she had for breakfast and if she keeps a diary. Parton plays along and has some incredibly sassy answers. On not keeping a diary:

I don’t have to. It seems like for the last 40 years my life has been lived in the press, so I can Google any date in my history and find out what I was doing.

Happy 80th Birthday wishes go out to actor Nick Nolte!

Is there any actor that better embodies the groovy era mystique of a beefy guy with a mustache than Nick Nolte? No one else comes to mind who can bring together the overall dad vibe in which he traffics with legit acting chops to make something wholly unique.

A star from a strange era, his steely gaze would have been best served in the films of the '50s and '60s, but instead he added a gruffness and an askew way into the films of the '70s, '80s, and '90s. Most notable for his role in Down and Out in Beverly Hills, his offbeat sensibilities make it impossible to take your eyes away from him whenever he's on screen.
