For his new Joker movie, Joaquin Phoenix is channeling his inner clown. Phoenix and director Todd Phillips took to the streets of New York City to film the movie, transforming Brooklyn into a Gotham City setting. Phoenix has been spotted around the city in his full Joker costume working on the movie, including a scene set in the subway where his Joker character is causing trouble.

standalone feature about the iconic Batman villain, and won’t connect with other DC movies like Wonder Woman and Justice League. Phillips described the film as an “exploration of a man disregarded by society that is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale,” according to Variety.



Phillips has been putting out official photos of Phoenix as the Joker and Zazie Beetz’s character, who is playing a love interest to the Joker. Robert De Niro, Marc Maron, Bill Camp, and Frances Conroy are also starring in the film. De Niro is reportedly set to play a “a talk show host who is somehow instrumental in the Joker’s origin,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Here’s a look at the Joker in his full makeup and costume:

The photos below show New York City being transformed into a gritty Gotham City sidewalk in the film. The Wrap reported in the summer of 2018 that Phillips would be taking some inspiration from The King of Comedy, Martin Scorsese’s 1982 black comedy that starred De Niro as aspiring comedian Rupert Pupkin, and Jerry Lewis as a famous late night host that Pupkin kidnaps so that he can appear on his show. These shots seemingly confirm that, as that movie also took place in the 1980’s and had a similar gritty, city aesthetic.

We’ve always associated Matthew McConaughey with perfect surfer hair. His mane is full despite the fineness of his hair, thanks to its natural, wavy texture. He cleans it up for black-tie events, but wears it casually otherwise. McConaughey is proof you don’t need to have some businessman’s cut to be taken seriously. Instead, you only have to know how to style and maintain your hair.



To learn how to do exactly that, we spoke with our stylist pal Greg Ruggeri of Salon Ruggeri i

n NYC. He has enviable wavy hair, much like McConaughey’s, and helps many of his male and female clients make good of their own. Here’s Ruggeri’s advice on how to cop McConaughey’s look for yourself.

The 10 Best Hairstyles for Men That Will Never Go Out of Style

Miller Mobley
The Type of Hair You Need

As with any style, you need to have the right kind of hair in order to execute this one perfectly. This comes down to density, texture, thickness, and so forth. And with McConaughey’s style, Ruggeri says you need to have fine- to medium-textured hair (so, not thick and wiry), and it needs to have “a slight wave or soft curl to create the appearance of floppiness.”

If you have thick and straight hair, this style will end up looking like Brad Pitt in the late aughts. It’s not a bad result, but it’s important to note you’ll have different results, and that this piecier McConaughey style is probably not yours to execute.

And of course, it will need to be dense—that is, not overtly thinning—and grown an inch or two past your ears.

5 Men’s Hairstyle Trends You Should Try in 2018

What to Tell Your Stylist

Ruggeri says you won’t need to cut much, but that your stylist should do a general tidying up everywhere.

“Keep the length, giving the appearance of a slightly grown-out haircut,” he says. “Then, ask him or her to texturize the ends all over, to create definition and softness.”

How to Style it Casually (Like Our October 2018 Shoot Above)

Ruggeri says to start with a curling balm (like Liquid Rollers from Evo), which will emphasize your natural curly texture, as well as a salt spray (like Australian Salt Spray from David Mallet) to enhance and control it. You can also substitute the balm for a light paste (like Box o’ Bollox by Evo), which will preserve your wavy texture if you aren’t working with actual curls.

“When hair is slightly wet, apply the pomade or curling balm to your hands,” says Ruggeri. “Rub together gently, distributing evenly over your palms. Then lightly rub the product over your entire head. Don’t think too much about it.”

You can comb it in with your fingers, then go back through and scratch at it to dismantle the neatness. You just want to keep it loose, unfussy.

“Once the first product is applied, lightly spray salt spray to create slight texture,” Ruggeri adds. “If you want a simpler approach, try just using the salt spray by itself. Your only concern here is not to use too much.”

Start with a couple sprays, evenly over the hair, and work from there, gauging the texture and definition as you go.

How to Style it Formally

When it comes to dressed-up styling, Ruggeri says that the formal execution is not much different than the casual approach: “The difference with formal styling here is that you’d use slightly more product,” he says. You’ll get a glossier finish, and Ruggeri advises using your fingers to play with the balance and weight—until you see that it flatters and frames you properly.

How Often to Get it Cleaned Up

Ruggeri says you should return to your stylist every 4-8 weeks for a slight trim with scissors. You don’t want to do anything with an electric clipper, and you only want to clean up the ends and lightly texturize anything that isn’t already so.

Note: Guys with straight hair will have to texturize their hair with scissors more often. How frequently you visit is just a matter of how fast your hair grows, and a matter of how quickly the style looks or feels unlike the one you first received.

When training your pet dog, you need to constantly provide your dogs just one command each time. If you demand your dog greater than one command at the exact same time, your canine is sure to be perplexed regarding exactly what command it should comply with. This will irritate both of you. By giving your dog just one command each time, it is way more likely to do better and understand your orders which will certainly bring about a greater success rate.

What diet in the world lets you eat fudge? This one!

This intensely chocolate-flavored confection has long been a classic delicious treat in the U.S., where food historians say it was invented. Some say it was a candy recipe gone wrong—it was “fudged,” hence the name—but according to the Davenport Daily Tribune, origins of fudge can be pointed to college girls in the late 1800s having fudge parties in their dorms.

It makes you wonder if fudge may have been the origin of the famous “freshm

an 15,” those extra pounds new collegiates gain when they go off to college. But these freezer fudge recipes we’re sharing with you today won’t add an ounce. They have the same creamy texture— with even more trendy flavors like gingerbread, pumpkin, pecan pie and, of course, peanut butter chocolate!

Here are six fall fudge recipes you can indulge in without “fudging” your diet:

1. Basic Freezer Fudge >

If you can’t stop yourself from tinkering with a recipe, this is the place to start. This basic freezer fudge recipe has only three ingredients: peanut butter, chocolate chips (regular or NutriChocolate), and almond milk. Heated in a pot together, they create a creamy, delicious fudge. Try swapping out the chocolate chips to liven things up with some shredded coconut or honey. Scoop the mixture into an ice cube tray or onto a baking sheet you’ve sprayed with zero-calorie cooking spray and pop it in the freezer to harden.

With chocolate chips, one square counts as three Extras. With NutriChocolates, one square counts as one PowerFuel and one Extra.

2. Gingerbread Fudge >

You can almost taste this delicious treat, can’t you? Made with cashew butter and all the spices that make gingerbread cookies the iconic fall treat, this delectable, melt-in-your-mouth fudge has all the satisfying sweetness of gingerbread, but with only a touch of molasses and stevia sweetener.

At only 88 calories per serving, one serving counts as three Extras on Nutrisystem.

3. Pumpkin Spice Fudge >

It wouldn’t be autumn without the taste of pumpkin spice. Imagine it as a piece of soft, creamy fudge that you can actually eat and enjoy with Zero guilt! Almond butter, real pumpkin puree, a little maple syrup, vanilla, coconut oil and, of course, pumpkin spice are combined to become a delicious treat.

The best part of this pumpkin perfection? One serving is only 82 calories, and it counts as three Extras on Nutrisystem.

4. Pecan Pie Fudge >

Two of your favorite desserts all rolled up into one! This simple recipe uses pecan puree (just whip up some pecans in your food processor), maple syrup, vanilla and maple extract, coconut oil and stevia to produce a 102-calorie treat topped with a whole pecan.

This delicious snack counts as three Extras on Nutrisystem.

5. Maple Walnut Fudge >

This fudge turns an appetizing blonde color, just like traditional maple walnut candy. Be prepared to get all of your maple flavor desires in this delectable and creamy treat that clocks in at a mere 109 calories per serving.

On Nutrisystem, one serving of this fudge counts as three Extras.

6. Almond Butter and Sea Salt Freezer Fudge >

Fans of salty and sweet treats will love this version of freezer fudge. This recipe makes 20 servings, so you can savor it all week. Almond butter makes the base for this fudge, which has a creamy chocolatey top layer made with NutriChocolates, all sprinkled with sea salt. It’s only 113 calories per serving, too!

This salty-sweet snack counts as one PowerFuel and one Extra on Nutrisystem.

Losing weight is more than a decision you make one day, it’s a series of choices you make everyday. Those choices can be especially challenging on busy weekdays when you’re trying to keep up your energy to accomplish everything on your to-do list and you may have to eat on the go. Building a few simple weekday habits into your busy schedule can make all the difference, helping you shed pounds steadily no matter how full your calendar is.

1. Plan your meals.

We are all naturally inclined to finish the food we put o

n our plates, report researchers from the University of Bristol in the U.K. In their 2011 study, 92 percent of participants ate all the food on their plates regularly, but 28 percent of overweight people said that they cleaned their plates even when they were full before they finished. Planning your meals each week not only helps you avoid impulse stops for unhealthy food, it allows you to portion your food so that you put exactly the right amount on your plate and you don’t overeat. A Nutrisystem weight loss program makes it easy for you to plan your weekly meals and provides you with food in exactly the portions you need.

2. Choose nutrient-dense.

When you eat food that’s high in nutrition and low in calories—that is, the most nutrient-dense foods—you feel satisfied and you don’t feel the urge to fill up on calories that don’t provide you with the energy you need to get through the day. Vegetables, whole grains, fruits and nuts are the high-quality, nutrient-dense foods that are most commonly associated with weight loss, according to researchers in the Department of Nutrition at Harvard School of Public Health. Keep snacks made with nutrient-dense ingredients in your desk, car or wherever you are so you’re able to power up while staying on track to your weight loss goal. (Check out these tips for stocking your snack drawer at work).

3. Fill up on high-fiber.

Many studies have concluded that skipping breakfast can lead to increased appetite and unhealthy food choices throughout the day. What you eat for breakfast can have a significant impact too, according to a 2013 study from the University of Nottingham in the U.K. That research found that people who regularly ate high-fiber foods for breakfast were more likely to reach and maintain a healthy weight. High-fiber SmartCarbs provide energy that is gradually burned, keeping you feeling full longer.

4. Track your diet.

The simple act of recording what you eat can double your chances of reaching your weight loss goal, say the findings from a 2008 study by Kaiser Permanente’s Center for Health Research. Looking at your food journal heightens your awareness about your consumption habits and helps you to consume fewer calories, the researchers concluded. What are the quickest and easiest ways to keep a diet journal even when your day is jammed? With Nutrisystem’s FREE online app, NuMi, you can record the food you eat, the amount of water you drink, and your physical activity, so you’re inspired everyday to keep working toward your goal.

5. Sign up.

People who participate in a weight loss program, such as Nutrisystem, dramatically increase their chances of losing and keeping off excess weight, according to a 2013 study published in the American Journal of Medicine. A different research report published in The New England Journal of Medicine in 2009 concluded that the more counseling sessions you participate in, the more likely you are to reach your weight loss goal and the less prone you are to regain the weight. No matter how busy your week is, taking full advantage of your Nutrisystem plan’s access to dietitians and weight loss counselors should definitely be top priority.

Ever feel like your lifting routine has too much downtime? It does. A study from the American Council on Exercise finds that a 20-minute high-intensity interval-style strength workout (HIIT) done three times a week builds the same amount of muscle as a slower, 45-minute session. If you do multi-joint exercises, which work several muscle groups at once (like chest presses and leg extensions) you’ll see gains after three weeks, says Cedric X. Bryant, chief science officer at ACE.

7 Scientifically Proven Benefits of Interval Workouts

That’s significant, since three weeks out is often when exercisers get discouraged and quit a new routine. To judge strength improvements, researchers tracked participants’ one- and five-rep max for eight exercises—something you can do outside the lab. How do you know when you’ve surpassed your one-rep max? If you can do two reps at that weight in two consecutive workouts, add additional weight plates.
