Chris Pine is a Horrible Boss

Chris Pine might as well be giving me an acting lesson. It’s about motivation. It’s a reminder that for a scene to work, to have thrust and gravity, you need two characters who each want something, ideally from each other. I’m reminded of that famous scene in A Few Good Men where Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson verbally duke it out in a military court. One man wants the truth, while the other resolutely maintains that his opponent can’t, in fact, handle said truth. That scene’s got it all: a power imbalance, competing desires, machismo, drama. You can’t handle the truth! That’s some good stuff right there.

Mark Makers: Matt Barnes, Photographer

Steaks with Steven Stamkos. A smoke with Snoop Dogg. A yacht party with a crew of beautiful, nude women. Matt Barnes’ C.V. reads like just about every guy’s bucket list. The Ontario-raised photographer has made a name for himself by shooting any scene he can conjure, no matter how wild. And it’s that impossible-is-nothing work ethic that’s made the 31-year-old one of the most sought-after photographers in the industry, his work having been featured in Rolling Stone, Vogue and, of course, Sharp. You know his photos when you see them; they’re the ones that look better than real life.

Exercise is one of the best combatants against depression. In fact, a 2011 study at the Cooper Research Institute in Texas (a non-profit research facility dedicated to preventative medicine) showed that just three hours of exercise a week can reduce symptoms of moderate depression as effectively as prescription antidepressants. Here are a few things to make outdoor exercise in winter more tolerable—pleasant even.
