Olsen began acting when she was four years of age and co-starred in six of Mary-Kate and Ashley’s productions; she also auditioned for the film Spy Kids.  She almost quit acting in 2004 due to the media frenzy surrounding Mary-Kate’s eating disorder.  Olsen attended New York University‘s Tisch School of the Arts and the Atlantic Theater Company and graduated in March 2013 after six years of intermittent study. Her sisters’ clothing line “Elizabeth and James” was named after her and her older brother.

Olsen has been dating fellow actor Boyd Holbrook since 2012 after meeting on the film Very Good Girls. In March 2014, the couple became engaged.

I first saw Elizabeth Olsen in a thrilling movie called  Martha Marcy May Marlene where she played a girl trying to escape from a cult. I thought she was very convincing in the role and she had a lot talent. It didn’t hurt that she is totally gorgeous and sexy. I had to figure out who she was which I was amazed that she was an Olsen sibling. I’ll be honest, I think she is the cutest Olsen and has the most talent out of the sisters. She has that old school Hollywood beauty but that new school sexiness. I thought she was great in the new Godzilla, even though it was a small role she still made an impact in the movie. You can check her out in Godzilla and the upcoming Avengers movie next year as the Scarlet Witch.

If you have no idea who she is then just watch this iPhone commercial.

That’s right she was that cute blonde singing a cover of Gigantic from the legendary band the Pixies.

Phoebe Bridgers is American-Indie Folk singer, who I believe totally made that iPhone commerical because of her cuteness and her beautiful voice. Every time that commercial comes on the television, I eagerly wait in anticipation for her part because she is so adorable. I think the people at Apple knew what they were doing because they brought my two loves together the Pixies and cute blondes.

After watching that commercial over and over again. I had to figure out who is that amazing girl, which was Phoebe. I found out shortly that not only is she beautiful, she is also a talented musician. She has an album out called Killers which you can listen to on her BandCamp page:

This is why Phoebe Bridgers is our Woman Crush Wednesday because she is smart, talented and beautiful. But don’t take our word for it, check out her songs and watch her great music video:

 WRITTEN BY: RYAN FU @FU_BEATZ

Katherine “Kate” Upton is an American model and actress, known for her appearances in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. Upton was named Rookie of the Year following her first SI appearance in 2011 and was the cover model for the 2012 and 2013 issues.She was also the subject of the 100th Anniversary Vanity Fair cover.

Upton has expressed that her belief in God is important to her. During a photo shoot, someone joked about a cross necklace she wore, “Why are you wearing a cross? Like you would be religious,” then took the necklace from her to do the shoot. Upton stated about the incident: “I was really affected by that. The whole thing made me realize that I do want a cross with me, at all times.” As a result, Upton had a cross tattooed on the inside of her finger

The time of an interview granted to V Magazine, the wonderful Kate Upton tells anyone who will listen, the pride it gives one of its major physical assets: her breasts nicknamed “The Ladies” please! Yes, you read that right … Public tells you more!

This is the news of the day, the gorgeous blonde buxom and – most importantly – busty reveals the eyes of the world the nickname she dons her breasts: “The Ladies” as she likes to call them both! And yes, it was during an interview for V magazine which she is the cover on the occasion of the special edition spring (see below) that the American supermodel shows this strange habit for less surprising. On the cover captioned “Why Kate Upton she can not keep her clothes?” Everything is predestined to attract the eye and it is clear that it works.

WRITTEN BY: RYAN FU @FU_BEATZ

Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series created for HBO by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. It is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and FireGeorge R. R. Martin‘s series of fantasy novels, the first of which is titled A Game of Thrones.  The series, set on the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos at the end of a decade-long summer, interweaves several plot lines. The first follows the members of several noble houses in a civil war for the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms; the second covers the rising threat of the impending winter and the mythical creatures of the North; the third chronicles the attempts of the exiled last scion of the realm’s deposed dynasty to reclaim the throne. Through its morally ambiguous characters, the series explores the issues of social hierarchy, religion, loyalty, corruption, civil war, crime, and punishment. It is the most recent big-budget work to have contributed to the popularity of the fantasy genre in mainstream media.

Game of Thrones has obtained an exceptionally broad and active international fan base. It received widespread acclaim by critics, although its use of nudity and violence has caused controversy. The series has won numerous awards and nominations, including a Primetime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Drama Series in all three seasons, a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Television Series – Drama, a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation in Long Form, and a Peabody Award. Among the ensemble cast, Peter Dinklage won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series and the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor – Series, Miniseries or Television Film for his role as Tyrion Lannister. Filmed in a Belfast studio and on location elsewhere in Northern IrelandMaltaScotlandCroatiaIceland and Morocco, it premiered on HBO in the United States on April 17, 2011. The series was renewed for a fourth season, to debut in the United States on April 6, 2014.

I have loved the show since the beginning because of the great story lines but I love the women in the show because they are equally strong as the men. Plus, all of them are totally sexy even Brienne, I’m into it!

“I”…Inspire- Inspirational People of 2014- Up and Coming Actress Jillian Murray (Interview)

“We never know how high we are Till we are called to rise; And then, if we are true to plan, Our statures touch the skies.”  - Emily Dickinson

I don’t know about you, but in 2014 I want to be successful!

Whether it is in photography, music or writing. I just want to be highly successful. Of course, I want to be successful for the fame and money, but I also want to inspire people to become successful. As an Asian American, growing up in America, there weren’t many role models for me to look up to with the exception of my father and Bruce Lee. I am thankful that I had those two influences in my life because I would have been a lost soul. I want to find other people who can inspire people to achieve great things in their own lives.

BLW is introducing a section about people you may or may not know but they are well-known in their own fields and now they are starting to make noise for the whole world to hear. We decided to start this because we as a society are always looking for heroes or someone to look up to as a role model. Ynfortunately, we sometimes look for it in all the wrong places. So, we decided to dedicate an article about people, who you should inspire to be or are least gain some knowledge about how to be successful just like them. “Alone we fall, but together we stand.”

Interview

Ryan Fu:   Who Are you?
Jillian Murray:   I’m a storyteller
Ryan Fu:  What are you famous for?

0102

Jillian Murray:     I guess when I did Disney’s Sonny with a Chance; I got on some youngster’s radars. And then I did a known video game called Mass Effect where my face and body was used for the main female so that got the male audience and then I guess some movies like Never Back Down 2 for the rest of them
Ryan Fu:  Do you like being actresses?
Jillian Murray:    No I hate it, why am I here? What am I doing? (Laughing) Of course I enjoy it. I would never do something I wasn’t passionate about.
Ryan Fu:    Why did you decide to go into show business?
Jillian Murray:    I’m so addicted to understanding people, the how’s and why’s. My curiosity lead me to examine characters and I wanted to dive into them. That along with being a pretty fearless person which I guess I wanted to challenge myself and see if I could do it.
Ryan Fu:    Which actor or actresses do you look up to the most?

Meryl_Streep_by_Jack_Mitchellcate-blanchett_2843677b

Jillian Murray:   Meryl Streep is an obvious answer but I adore her. I love Juliette Lewis, Halle Berry and Cate Blanchett too.
Ryan Fu:    Whom were your role models growing up?
Jillian Murray:    This sounds awful, but I didn’t really have any. I was always independent and tried to march to the beat of my own drum. I was careful to not get caught up with idolizing others.
Ryan Fu:   If you weren’t actresses what would you be doing?
Jillian Murray:    I love psychology so maybe something in that world.
Ryan Fu:  What is the best and worst part of your job?
 jillan-jillian-murray-23072284-720-479
Jillian Murray:    The best part is the constant change and constant challenge but its a difficult profession because you have to be able to handle rejection and disappointments often and you have to also be away from your home and loved ones for very long periods of time, which makes sustaining a relationship much harder.
Ryan Fu:    Is it more important for you to be famous or to be recognized for your work?
Jillian Murray:     My work! But I really haven’t had the opportunity for people to see what I’m capable of yet. When you start out, you take jobs to build your resume and a lot of the times they are not great movies. But they provide a learning experience every time.
Ryan Fu:    What are your thoughts about FAME?
Jillian Murray:    It comes with the territory.

 jillian-jillian-murray-23072323-604-453

Ryan Fu:    How do you deal or feel about the media, making people famous for doing nothing?
Jillian Murray:    I’m gonna plead the 5th.
Ryan Fu:     What are your thoughts about the MEDIA/ Paparazzi?
Jillian Murray:    I understand it’s their job to get the shots and I understand that the general public is very curious about people’s lives behind the scenes.

'Glee' newcomer Dean Geyer spotted with girlfriend Jillian Murray at The Grove 04

Ryan Fu:    What are your turns you on or off about a person?
Jillian Murray:   Turn ONs – Vulnerability and honesty and someone willing to take risks… its so sexy seeing someone living presently.
Turn OFFs – Selfishness and lying. And someone who is close-minded is a big turnoff.
Ryan Fu:    As a person, is it important to be more beautiful inside or outside?
Jillian Murray:    C’mon, are you serious? I’m sure you already know my answer because of the previous questions but it’s so obviously the outside! (Laughing loudly)    But seriously, I am always looking past the exterior. Whether is beautiful looks, money, or success… those things don’t affect the way I see someone ever. A good soul and a beautiful heart can go the distance.
Ryan Fu:  What are your Goals or Aspirations in 2014?
Jillian Murray:    My goal this year is to really focus on being more present in life and finding a beautiful balance in regards to work and personal life. I’m an extreme person and when I have my eye on something I go all in. So easing into that balance is really important to me.

0506

Ryan Fu:  What makes you so successful?
Jillian Murray:    Well that’s a very relative term. You mean how do I live off this career choice? Well this is the advice I give my friends that are actors “If you don’t take a chance, you won’t have chance” and what I mean is stop playing everything so safe! I like walking into an audition knowing that I will either bomb horribly or do amazing and get called back. I think being mediocre or average or safe is death to an actor in LA. The same goes with life too… I LOVE taking chances… yeah I might get my heart broken or lose my financial stability in the process but at least I’m living life to the fullest and I think that way of life attracts positive things.
Ryan Fu:    What is your Fitness/ Beauty/ Health regimen?

07 08

Jillian Murray:    Well this is all changing. This interview is happening in March. And as of right now I haven’t walked into a gym in over 6 months and I have been eating awfully! So I actually will have a much different answer in a few months. I literally lost so much muscle in the last few months that I really am focused on getting back into shape.
Ryan Fu:    What is you Philosophy in Life/ Business/ Relationships?
Jillian Murray:      Be honest, hardworking, and positive
Ryan Fu:      Why should we keep an eye on you in 2014?
Jillian Murray:    Well this summer my new film CABIN FEVER PATIENT ZERO hits theaters. I have 5 other films that will be coming out directly after that as well.
