All Grown Up: Ron Howard's Parenthood Cast 25 Years Later

Originally posted 08/02/2014 04:00PM

Family: You can't live with 'em, you can't live without 'em – so you might as well make a movie about them. That's exactly what Ron Howard did with Parenthood, which hit theaters on August 2, 1989.

The story of four siblings working to raise their children right and keep their sanity at the same time, this movie was (and still is) relatable to moms and dads of all generations. Since its release, Parenthood has gone on to inspire two different TV shows, and it serves as an adorable archive of big stars in their early years. In fact, one of Bryce Dallas Howard's first on-screen roles was an uncredited bit in her dad's ensemble comedy.

What about the other billed stars of Parenthood? Sadly, not all the actors are still with us today. Jason Robards, who played Parenthood's patriarch Frank, passed away in 2000, but most of the Buckman clan is still working in showbiz.

To celebrate the film's 25th anniversary, we put together a family reunion to see what Parenthood's main players are up to right now.

Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Justin Timberlake Remember Nora Ephron

Nora Ephron Remembered by Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks

Originally posted 06/27/2012 09:55AM

A true trailblazer, Nora Ephron leaves behind a legacy of always knowing the right (and wittiest) thing to say. She was "an expert in all the departments of living well," according to Meryl Streep – one of many paying tribute to the late author-journalist-screenwriter-director, who died Tuesday at 71.

"You could call on her for anything: doctors, restaurants, recipes, speeches, or just a few jokes, and we all did it, constantly," Streep – who was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar for her role as Julia Child in Ephron's Julie & Julia (2009) – wrote in an email to The New York Times. "Nora just looked at every situation and cocked her head and thought, ‘Hmmmm, how can I make this more fun?'"

Streep wasn't the only celebrity to remember Ephron fondly.

Gwyneth Paltrow on WhoSay


A picture-perfect moment, right?

Well, looks like the joke is on Gwyneth, who posted a photo of her meeting comedians Steve Martin and Martin Short at the Vanity Fair party following last Sunday's Academy Awards.

"Dude. Seriously. I love my life," the actress, sporting her glamorous Tom Ford dress, wrote along with the photo, which she published on her WhoSay account that night.

Martin, too, shared similar pictorial evidence of his meeting with Paltrow, posting a slightly different version of the shot on his official Twitter page (see photo below) the same night.

Steve Martin's Band Named Entertainers of the Year| Music News, Steve Martin
He's hosted the Oscars (and Saturday Night Live 15 times!). He's won four Grammy Awards and an Emmy. But it's Steve Martin's love for the banjo that earned his band, Steep Canyon Rangers, the honor of being named entertainers of the year at the 22nd annual International Bluegrass Music Association Awards in Nashville.

"I want to congratulate the other nominees, and thank them for losing," Martin joked in his acceptance speech Thursday night. "We have loved playing this music across the country. We've tried to bring humor and really entertain the audiences. All the Steep Canyon Rangers are hard-working musicians and hard-working entertainers."

After Neil Patrick Harris brought down the house with a musical number heralding the arrival of this year's Academy Awards co-hosts Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin, the guys wasted no time cracking up the audience – and picking on the night's biggest names.

Nobody was safe – not Meryl Streep, Zac Efron nor Matt Damon – from Baldwin and Martin's repartee. Here are some of the duo's best lines:

• "[Best Actress nominee] Gabourey [Sidibe] and I have something in common: In our first movies we were both born a poor black child." – Steve Martin, joking about his beloved comedy The Jerk

• "She was so pleased to be nominated with him, she sent him a beautiful gift basket with a timer." – Steve Martin, on Best Director winner Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker), who was nominated against her ex-husband, James Cameron (Avatar)
