SNAP OUT OF IT! @Cher in Moonstruck (1987) for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress. Her co-star Nicolas Cage said, “Cher is a person with a huge heart, and that really comes through not only in her music but as a screen performer. She has an extraordinary blend of strength and vulnerability on-camera.”
Cher: “I don’t think that we are born with a finite number of dreams. One thing about dreams is that they can be whatever you want them to be, you don’t have to put a limit on them, you don’t even have to know them.“ . Happy Birthday to @cher who turns 73 today. What’s your favorite film and/or song of hers? #cher

Before Peter Dinklage was an Emmy Award-winning actor he performed with a “punk-funk-rap” band called Whizzy for many years in New York. (Photos by @SteveEichner ,1994). Dinklage said he got a huge scar from a Whizzy gig, telling Playboy: “I was jumping around onstage and got accidentally kneed in the temple. I was like Sid Vicious, just bleeding all over the stage. Blood was going everywhere. I just grabbed a dirty bar napkin and dabbed my head and went on with the show. We didn't care much at the time about personal safety. We were smoking and drinking during our shows, and one time my bass player fell off the back of his amp because he passed out. It was one of those bands.” #peterdinklage #gameofthrones #tyrionlannister
