Scarlett Johansson Leaves Manager Rick Yorn After 2 Decades

Scarlett Johansson has parted ways with Rick Yorn, the manager of more than 20 years who signed her at age 12, TheWrap has learned.

The “Avengers” star’s ties with Yorn have been strong over the years: She recorded an album with his singer-songwriter brother Pete Yorn in 2009 called “Break Up.” But an individual familiar with the situation said she is no longer working with Yorn or his company LBI Entertainment.

The circumstances surrounding the split are unknown. Johansson will continue to be represented by talent agency CAA. Neither Yorn nor a Johansson representative responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.

Famed Beach From Leonardo DiCaprio’s 2000 Movie Closes Due to Tourist Damage

The Thai beach made famous by Leonardo DiCaprio’s 2000 film “The Beach” will be closed temporarily due to tourist damage.

According to the Associated Press, Maya Bay on the island of Koh Phi Phi Leh will be closed to all visitors for four months every year, starting this June, so that the coral reefs and sea life can recover. Thailand’s national parks and wildlife department made the decision on Wednesday.

Over 200 boats and 4,000 people visit the beach every day, and recent surveys led by marine biologists revealed that parts of the reefs have disappeared and sea life is gone.

Thailand closes many its marine national parks from mid-May to mid-October but Maya Bay has remained open year round due to tourist demand since the film was released.

“Overworked and tired, all the beauty of the beach is gone. We need a timeout for the beach,” Thon Thamrongnawasawat, a member of Thailand’s national strategy committee on environment development, told the AP.

When it reopens, there will be a daily limit of 2,000 tourists that will be able to access the beach. Boats will no longer be allowed to anchor there.

“The Beach” was directed by Danny Boyle and based on a novel of the same name by Alex Garland. It also starred Tilda Swinton and Virginie Ledoyen and followed Richard (DiCaprio), who travels to Thailand when he comes in possession of a strange map that depicts a solitary beach paradise.

The Evolution of Joseph Gordon-Levitt: From Child Actor to ‘Snowden’ Star (Photos)

1991: Joseph Gordon-Levitt booked a number of roles as a child actor, including guest spots on “Family Ties” and “Murder She Wrote,” but his first starring role was on ABC’s revival of ’60s gothic soap opera, “Dark Shadows.” The show, on which JGL played David Collins, only lasted one season.

1994: In “Angels in the Outfield,” JGL plays an adorable foster child who prays to God that the California Angels win the pennant so he can have a family again. God answers by sending a pack of angels, led by Christopher Lloyd, to help out the struggling ball club.

1996: JGL begins an unforgettable turn as the oldest of four alien visitors scouting out planet Earth disguised as humans (although oldest, JGL’s character was disguised as a teenager) in the hit NBC sitcom, “3rd Rock From the Sun.” The show lasted six seasons, and ended its run in 2001.

1999: Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars opposite Heath Ledger in the Shakespeare-inspired teen comedy “10 Things I Hate About You.”

2001: JGL begins shedding his squeaky clean sitcom star image by playing a violent and emotionally unstable juvenile delinquent in “Manic,” an independent drama co-starring Don Cheadle and his future onscreen love interest, Zooey Deschanel.

2004: JGL continued to receive indie acclaim by playing a reckless male prostitute who was molested by his Little League baseball coach in “Mysterious Skin.”

2005: JGL left a lasting impression on viewers as a young, hard-boiled detective in writer-director Rian Johnson‘s high school noir “Brick.”

2007: JGL continued maturing in front of our eyes in another modern noir, “The Lookout,” in which he played a forgetful bank janitor with a brain injury who gets lured into aiding and abetting a group of bank robbers.

2009: Joseph Gordon-Levitt starred in yet another indie, which allowed the rising actor to demonstrate his romantic lead chops. In director Marc Webb‘s breakout comedy “(500) Days of Summer,” JGL played a Los Angeles 20-something who fell in love with a woman (Zooey Deschanel) who doesn’t believe in love.

2010: JGL officially became a movie star after taking on the dapper role of Leonardo DiCaprio‘s best-dressed partner in Christopher Nolan‘s sci-fi action blockbuster “Inception.”

2013: JGL added writer and director to his résumé with the release of “Don Jon,” a drama about a Jersey boy who must choose between his love of pornography and the love of his life (Scarlett Johansson). The rom-com premiered to rave reviews at the Sundance.

2014: In “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For,” Joseph Gordon-Levitt played a cocky young gambler who runs afoul of a powerful senator (Powers Booth) who turns out to be his dad.

2015: In Robert Zemeckis‘ “The Walk,” JGL played real-life daredevil Philippe Petit, who crossed between the Twin Towers of NYC’s World Trade Center n 1974 on a tightrope.

2016: Joseph Gordon-Levitt took on another fact-based role in Oliver Stone‘s “Snowden,” about the notorious whistleblower who leaked classified National Security Agency documents and then fled the U.S.

Neon Carnival 2018: Creator Brent Bolthouse Reveals New Location, Details (Exclusive)

Neon Carnival // Coachella 2016 from GRO Productions on Vimeo.

A tentpole of the Hollywood social calendar is off to the races.

Neon Carnival — hospitality and nightlife czar Brent Bolthouse’s celebrity-stocked overnight party — is moving to the HITS Desert Horse Park in Thermal, California, The Party Report has learned.

The invite-only bash that comes around like a comet once a year, whipping up a frenzy as an unaffiliated side party during Coachella’s opening weekend, is set for Saturday night, April 14.

For the past 10 years, it’s been the post-festival stop of choice for Leonardo DiCaprio, Clint Eastwood (above), Drake and Rihanna — all enjoying ferris wheels, bumper cars and outdoor bottle service. The oddball location just adds to the mystique.

Populated by the go-getters of young Hollywood — talent, agents, managers, publicists, and producers — it’s a night of dancing under the stars that until now, has consumed the tarmac of a private airport in the middle of nowhere.

“We’re staying in the same neighborhood,” Bolthouse told The Party Report this week. “We’ve entered into what we believe is a long term relationship with HITS, which is right next door to the airfield.”

If overlayed on West Hollywood, the grounds housing Neon Carnival would extend from the Beverly Center to the Grove (CoachellaValley.com)

The park is more frequently used as a show grounds for million-dollar equestrian events. It hosts a circuit of  show jumping competitions from January to March each year and is justifiably engineered for large crowds.

“We have more room at HITS than we ever did at the airport,” Bolthouse added.

About the Size of West Hollywood

At 239 acres, let’s put this into perspective for Angelenos: If we overlayed the new home of Neon Carnival across West Hollywood,  the swath would encompass the Beverly Center on the west and extend down every block between Beverly Boulevard and Third Street moving east through and including the CBS lot, the Farmer’s Market, and the Grove, 1.3 miles east. It’s a huge footprint.

“It gives us the ability to ebb and flow as years come down the pike,” Bolthouse said.

8,000 Invite-Only Guests

As the event has swelled from a few hundred L.A. insiders winding down in a hangar to an event with its own illuminated traffic control signs, corporate sponsors, and a fraudulent secondary ticket market, it has remained a tough invite — even for those on the upper rungs of the celebrity food chain. For one of the choice 30 VIP tables amongst an already elite crowd, the real estate is scarce.

“The thing about [events surrounding] Coachella is, Leo doesn’t come with one friend. He comes with a big crew of people,” Bolthouse explained. “They need three or four tables. When people like that are taking three or four tables, you can imagine how 30 tables disappear pretty fast.”

In this picture below from 2017, Drake (left) arrived after performing on the Coachella main stage with Future earlier in the night. Check out Diddy just casually floating in the crowd (frame right).

 

“Puffy doesn’t come with two people,” Bolthouse continued.  “On a normal night, he is with 10 people. At Coachella he’s with 25 people. Everything seems to be bigger and more groups of people coming together.”

You Can’t Buy Your Way In

Bolthouse’s team sets up multiple days of advance check-in and wristband distribution in Los Angeles.  This eases VIP congestion on the night. It’s also spawned some unauthorized Craigslist entrepreneurship.

“We’ve got new wristbands this year that are impossible to get off your wrist,” Bolthouse warns.  “It’s going to be harder for people to slip them off and sell them.”

The official website is warning the wannabes.

Despite new wristbands and a new home, some familiar guideposts return. From London, the criminally underexposed DJ Kayper returns. She’s a scratch DJ (not like Alesso or Zedd, who were in the crowd as guests last year). Fellow Neon residents Ruckus, Politk, and Jesse Marco will split shifts between 10 p.m. and the stated 4 a.m. finish.

Levi’s and Tequila Don Julio both return as the flagship sponsors with activations throughout the space. Wynn Nightlife (the Vegas engine behind clubs XS, Intrigue, and similar weekly outdoor bacchanalia at Encore Beach Club) is also onboard. Rembrandt Flores and EFG continue to helm the event publicity.

“We try to create something that you don’t see at the festival,” Bolthouse said. “This should feel more like a party and not like a concert. You get that when you book great nightclub DJs.”

And if Beyonce wanted to make this her Saturday night concert after party?

Bolthouse has a plan: “We would welcome her with open arms”

Editors’ Note: The Neon Carnival has no affiliation with and is not endorsed by Coachella or Goldenvoice. Neon Carnival takes place Saturday night, April 14 at the HITS Desert Horse Park in Thermal, California, not the Jacqueline Cochran Regional Airport. Admittance is by invitation only and neither wristbands nor tables are for sale anywhere. The writer of this post has no access or control over invitations. He just interviews the event’s creative ensemble.
