Mr Brühl became a star in his native Germany with the release of Good Bye, Lenin!before going on to secure international status with a role in Mr Quentin Tarantino’sInglourious Basterds as Fredrick Zoller, a young German sniper whose heroic exploits form the basis for a Nazi propaganda film. He was in Toronto with Mses Kate Beckinsale and Cara Delevingne for the premiere of Mr Michael Winterbottom’s new movie, The Face of an Angel. The 36-year-old Mr Brühl plays Thomas, a film-maker who travels to Italy to make a movie about the Amanda Knox murder case and finds himself at loggerheads with the press.
What attracted you to working on this project?
Well, firstly it was such an of-the-moment story – but working with Michael was a big draw, too. He’s such a prolific director, such a chameleon – he’s turned his hand to every genre of film and his body of work couldn’t be more diverse. I felt that I was almost playing his alter-ego in this film… Michael disagrees with this sentiment slightly, but I feel that there are elements of him in the character.

How many times have you been to Tiff?
It’s my third time… Of course, the ironic thing about visiting a film festival as an actor is that you’re so busy promoting that you rarely get time to see any film other than your own. That’s sadly the case here – I’ll be leaving tomorrow to start filming in London with Bradley Cooper. It’s a movie about a man who attempts to make the best restaurant in the world.

Being an actor must involve a lot of dressing up.
Oh, absolutely. I’ve been given so many beautiful clothes in the one that I’m currently filming. It’s all Burberry and Paul Smith – I love British designers. Suits, ties, shirts, shoes… I just want to keep every piece.

Have you ever been able to keep the clothes you’ve worn in a movie?
No, sadly not. I certainly wasn’t able to keep the outfit I wore in Inglourious Basterds – but that’s quite possibly not such a bad thing.
Do you have any cinematic style icons?
As I mentioned, I’m an Anglophile, so I’m inspired by guys such as Benedict Cumberbatch, and Tom Hiddleston. And of course, it was such a privilege to work with Cara [Delevingne] too; she’s such a huge style icon.

SYMPHONY IN BLUE

Daniel Brühl freshly arrived from the set of his current film project with Sienna Miller and Bradley Cooper enjoyed the event to the fullest and even ventured behind the bar to show his talent as a caterer to the test. His friend and business partner Atilano Gonzalez, with whom he runs the Bar Raval in Berlin since 2011, was there and was deeply impressed by the exceptional staging of the evening.

Lavoisier is having none of your shit.

Heeeey so fun fact: the woman in that painting is Lavoisier’s wife, Marie-Anne Pierrette Paulze, who not only acted as Lavoisier’s lab assistant but also translated English and Latin texts into French so he could read them. But she didn’t just translate, she pointed out errors in the chemistry in some of the texts. Her observations of these errors convinced Lavoisier to study combustion, which led to his discovery of oxygen. She was also critical to the publication of Lavoisier’s Elementary Treatise on Chemistry in 1789. She kept strict records of every experiment they conducted together and drew detailed diagrams of all their equipment. She also threw amazing parties and invited all the brightest minds in science so her husband could pick their brains. After Lavoisier was guillotined she secured all of his notebooks and equipment for posterity.
In short: NOBODY KICKS MADAME LAVOISIER OUT OF THE LAB.

Also, a side note: My historian husband-to-be pointed some things out to me about this painting. Notice that Madame Lavoisier is looking at the viewer, and all the light is on her, while Lavoisier himself is physically smaller than her, in shadow, and looking up to her in reverence. This isn’t a candid photograph- all of these choices are deliberate. The painting isn’t of Lavoisier- Madame Lavoisier is meant to be the central subject. 
I can just imagine Lavoisier telling all his colleagues that his wife is really the one with all the clever ideas, and them patting him on the back and telling him he’s sweet for saying so.

ATTENTION FOR A SECOND, YO: Real talk, this animal (the Ordovician Helmet crab, aka the Horseshoe crab, aka the Atlantic’s most at-risk shelled animal) is of a species that is close to 450 million years old. They are considered endangered, and often wash up on the shores of Long Island (this big lady crab was at TR park in Oyster Bay)Note: these animals are often used to extract their blue blood and cure diseases. They help the ocean out big time. And they are one of the longest-surviving species on the planet. They’re washing up and people don’t think to/are scared to save them because of their deceivingly harmless barbs. Take note, friends. Their barbs are NOT stingers. They cannot hurt you. Their pinchers aren’t pinchers, they’re just little legs that are actually really soft! The barb tail they have is actually what they use to stick into the ocean floor or the sand when waves knock them over or they flip onto their backs by accident. And you can help them out by flipping them back over very quickly and helping them scuttle back into the water if you see them struggling. This is way important. Just call me the Sarah McLachlan of horseshoe crabs.

Hey everyone, as someone who grew up with horseshoe crabs literally everywhere I’d like to bring your attention to these fine, prehistoric bottom-feeders. Growing up in Gerritsen Beach (In Brooklyn, NY) meant seeing dozens upon dozens of horseshoe crabs trapped in fishing lines and shredded sandbags, stuck above the high-tide marks during low tide, and sometimes washed up on the rocks. Which led to probably hundreds of hours cutting them loose every summer during the mating seasons. Horseshoe crabs are 10000% harmless to you and can be easily handled (just don’t dangle them from their tails (known as a telson); that’s painful and you may accidentally rip the tail off and they’ll have to wait until their next molt to grow a new one!).
If you see a horseshoe crab on the beach, gently nudge it with your foot. Most of them will respond by waving their telson around. If it doesn’t respond, flip it over to check for moving limbs. If you suspect it is tangled and can’t move and you can’t bring it straight to the water because of this get a bucket of sea water and slowly pour it over the book gills and legs. As you work to untangle these rad critters, which are actually more closely related to spiders than crabs, pour more water over it periodically until you can return it to the ocean. However, during the mating season horseshoe crabs will attach together, with the large female toting around a smaller male behind her, and bury themselves in sand and mud to lay their eggs. Do not dig up these horseshoe crabs unless you are absolutely sure that they are stuck above the high tide mark. If you see dozens of beached horseshoe crabs but none of them are clinging together and the tide is going out, please do your part and turn them back in the direction of the water. Place them at the water’s edge and let them decide which direction they want to go in to be absolutely sure that they aren’t stranded accidentally.
Horseshoe crabs cannot bite you, and their “pincers” are really just for picking up food and don’t hurt if they try to grab you. They may be a little intimidating-looking but they are harmless and will be grateful for your help.

Just look at all those friendly legs waiting to tickle you in thanks for helping them not die a slow death of baking in the sun and getting eaten by gulls and other sea birds!
Please, protect our bottom feeding horseshoe crabs at all costs. Yes their blood has important medicinal value, being copper-based unlike our iron-based blood, but overharvesting them can have devastating effects on our underwater ecosystems. When being harvested for blood they should actually be returned to the ocean after taking a little, rather than bled dry
