first_imgThe Gottis made sure the Travoltas were well fed for ‘Gotti’ NEW YORK, N.Y. – John Travolta and Kelly Preston didn’t just receive the Gotti family’s blessing to make a biopic about the late, infamous crime boss, they also were fed well, in true Italian style.“Victoria Gotti made us a gorgeous spread one afternoon. It was awesome,” recalled Travolta at the film’s premiere Thursday.“We’ve had quite a few meals. Quite a few great Italian meals,” added Preston, who plays Gotti’s wife, Victoria. “Victoria cooked us dinner, an amazing dinner in the same house that she and John lived in for many years, and the family was in and out and we spent all day long together and it was wonderful and then we’ve had other meals together. We had a great meal just when we landed here four or five days ago after the whole family had seen the film and that was incredible because they loved it. That was thrilling.”John Gotti, who died in prison in 2002, was head of the Gambino crime family and was convicted of murder and racketeering in 1992. “Gotti,” which opens in the United States on Friday, has been in the works for years, with even Lindsay Lohan in the running to play the mobster’s daughter in an early iteration. Travolta says the end result is worth it.“Good things are worth waiting for and we were waiting for this and I think all the time we waited, we built up such a plethora of information and we found out how to design the film itself and I think we had time to work on the characters and be better at what we did, so I think it’s a different film if we had done it then, than now and a better one.”The actor says one of the things viewers will take away from the film is how popular Gotti was.“Unlike (John) Dillinger and (Al) Capone, Gotti was loved and I discovered why he was loved. He was actually like a local Robin Hood, he was a good will factor to many situations, whether it was putting businesses back in the black, and profit again or supporting families that weren’t doing well, or neighbourhood celebrations, so they loved him on a personal level,” Travolta said.The movie “Gotti” was sanctioned by the family, and some critics say it’s too sympathetic and favourable toward a mafia boss. by Alicia Rancilio, The Associated Press Posted Jun 15, 2018 9:22 am PDT Last Updated Jun 15, 2018 at 10:00 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emailcenter_img Victoria Gotti, left, and Kelly Preston attend the premiere of “Gotti” at the SVA Theatre on Thursday, June 14, 2018, in New York.

Discussions on Unficyp mandate renewal underway

Posted On Aug 9 2019 by

first_imgDiscussions for the renewal of the Unficyp mandate have started with the UN Security Council’s five permanent members, Foreign Minister Nicos Christodoulides said on Saturday.“The next two weeks will be decisive and crucial to the context of the resolution,” he said.Christodoulides said he did not expect any problems to occur regarding the renewal of the mandate of Unficyp for another six months.“However, there is no room for complacency, because what matters is what the resolution will include as a whole, taking into account the Turkish approach that the Peacekeeping Force is not necessary in Cyprus and it has no added value, a position expressed by the Turkish side since 1964.”Christodoulides added that Unficyp’s mandate will be renewed for a period of another six months, saying that “then the state of affairs regarding the United Nations Peacekeeping Force will have to be discussed again, in a crucial period I would say, since we have heard Mr Cavusoglu and Mr Akinci say that talks would not restart before June.”The government, he said, is not in agreement with this position and believes that talks must begin again as soon as possible.The minister said he hoped that UN special envoy Jane Holl Lute would return to Cyprus soon, around the end of January or beginning of February.“Even at this time when no public announcements are made, the process to agree on the terms of reference, that would allow the resumption of the talks, is ongoing.”You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoYahoo SearchBack Pain Treatments That Might Surprise You.
