Madison Beer Opens Up About Her Gay Grandfather & Celebrating Pride

Madison Beer strikes a pose for the latest issue of our online magazine RAW!

Here’s what the 18-year-old “Dead” singer had to share with the mag:

On her grandfather’s boyfriend of 20 years recently passing away: “I was just talking about it yesterday with London Pride. My grandfather’s gay and he’s never come out. He lived his whole life in fear, scared of what people would think because it was so unaccepted back then by everyone. And it was obviously illegal. So I was just saying how beautiful it is that times are really changing and even though there’s still people out there that are ignorant and are against people loving who they want to love, it’s awesome to see so many people come together in a city no matter where in the world it is.”

On what happened to her tongue after watching A Christmas Story when she was younger: “(laughs) I was like five or six, and I was left home alone with my nanny and my parents were out to eat dinner. I watched A Christmas Story and there’s a scene where the kid sticks his tongue to the pole and they can’t get it off, and for whatever possessed me to think, ‘Oh my God, I should do that.’ I went to my freezer. I literally can see the picture perfectly and I hope this refrigerator is burning in hell right now. It’s the worst refrigerator ever! (laughs) It was just a little ice box, it was freezing, I went and stuck my tongue to it–like to the point where I literally couldn’t get it off. And I started screaming for the housekeeper. She came upstairs and she thought that I got electrocuted. (laughs) I don’t know why she thought I got electrocuted, and she grabbed me and pulled me off, and I’m not joking, it’s disgusting. Like, layers of my tongue came off and I was gushing blood, so much blood that it was insane and it was so bad. I really don’t recommend sticking your tongue to a freezer anytime soon. 1/10 literally.”

Gregg Sulkin Goes Shirtless & Flashes His Abs for RAW

Gregg Sulkin is getting steamy in his new shoot for the latest issue of our online magazine RAW!

Here’s what the 25-year-old Faking It actor had to share with the mag:

On first wanting to become an actor: “I never wanted to be an actor. I just wanted to play football (soccer), and I just never really took an interest in acting and film. I never took a passion in it until I was about 9 years old and I dressed up as a girl in a school play. (laughs) And then I put socks down my top or a very tight skirt and at the end of the evening, my mum is like, ‘Oh, you’re actually very good!’ I didn’t think anything of it. A couple of years later, my mum told me to go to an audition, and I didn’t want to go, but part of me always thought to myself, ‘A few years ago, that was so fun. I loved that show. I loved doing that one performance.’ And so it was that school play that was the time when I actually caught the acting bug, and I landed my first professional job in England on a movie called Sixty Six.”

On his Dwayne Johnson-esque career goals: “So many. I feel like I haven’t even started. (laughs) You know how Dwayne Johnson is right now? I would love to basically replicate his career. I would like to own a production company that had 30 different projects going on all at once. I love acting, I’ve always been so grateful for people to hire me as an actor, but at the same time, I just love the whole production side of stuff. I’m also a bit of a control freak so I thought I could actually be quite good at assembling a whole 100 people together putting their best foot forward doing a show or a movie.”

Gregg also revealed that he loves writing poetry and songs in his free time, he wants as many kids as he can afford, and more! Head to RawPages.com to hear what he had to say.

'It' Stars Nicholas Hamilton & Chosen Jacobs Spill on Being in a Stephen King Film

Nicholas Hamilton and Chosen Jacobs, stars of Stephen King‘s horror film It, are spilling on what it was like to work on such a massive film!

The 17-year-old and 16-year-old actors chatted about the flick and their blossoming careers in their recent RAW feature.

Nicholas on being in a Stephen King movie: “Well, if I was to compare it to something, I worked in a movie 2-3 years ago called Captain Fantastic. It’s very similar in the sense of there’s these kids that band together to make something happen in their way. But when you base something off of a Stephen King novel, you have the layers that he creates. There’s an arch for every character. There’s definitely the pressure always of people knowing what we were doing while we were doing it whereas Captain Fantastic, no one knew about it until it came out. So it’s a lot different.”

Chosen on how he got his name: “My dad was out in the Chinatown of Atlanta and he just heard an Asian couple talking and then the baby said something that sounded like ‘chosen.’ I don’t know if he just heard it or if that’s what he wanted to hear, but that’s how I got my name. He’s like, ‘We’re going to name him Chosen.’ And I agree with it!”

Nicholas on how he’d like to be remembered: “Being a nice guy. You hear about guys like Tom Hanks and Steve Carell, they’re known as like the nicest guys in Hollywood. I want to be like that. I aspire to be one of those guys who you want to meet, and after you meet them, you want to see ‘em constantly. And it sounds like a self-centered thing, but I really want to be the guy who everybody wants to be friends with.”

Chosen on how he got involved in entertainment: “I started off doing music, and I’ve always loved that. The goal of a singer is to make people feel something. Acting is kind of the same thing, so my mom put me in some theater here and there, some classes. I’ve been blessed to be able to book something awesome like It and Hawaii Five-0 and it’s just been a great experience.”

'It': Sophia Lillis & Wyatt Oleff Dish on Working With Bill Skarsgard & More!

The young stars of It Sophia Lillis and Wyatt Oleff are spilling some on-set secrets!

The 15-year-old actress and the 14-year-old actor – who are both members of The Losers’ Club in the film – snapped these cool pics for the latest issue of our online magazine RAW.

Sophia on working with Bill Skarsgard, who plays Pennywise the clown: “All of the crew members are just cool calming people that even seeing Bill Skarsgard with his full clown makeup was funny to see because he acted so nice to me. He’s like, ‘Hey! How’s you day?,’ and the next second he’s choking me. It’s all really confusing, but he’s a cool guy.”

Wyatt on working with Sophia: “It was our first project working together and hopefully there’s more to come. (laughs) She’s just such a fantastic actor. A lot of us can’t even like compare to her. It’s weird. It’s like incredible how she’s able to express herself. Because in real life she’s not too good at it, but when it comes to acting she’s very top notch. Working with her was definitely awesome.”

Sophia on working with a group of boys: “Nothing changed. They called me the androgynous kid because I had short hair. They were very nice, they were like 12 and I was like 14. We were young! I’m still really young. (laughs) It was like a year ago. Back in the day! No, we’re still young, so it’s fine.”

Nathalie Emmanuel Debunks 'Game of Thrones' Theories for RAW! (Video)

The season seven finale of Game of Thrones airs this weekend, so it is the perfect time for Nathalie Emmanuel‘s RAW feature to be released!

The 28-year-old actress, who portrays the character Missandei on the hit HBO series, played a game of “The Theories Are Coming…” in which she debunked some possible and totally impossible theories.

Among the theories were the possibility of a ninth season of Game of Thrones, Ned Stark being alive and a faceless man died in his place, Bran being the one who built the wall, and Missandei being a faceless woman.

“Oh my goodness, it’s going to be so good,” Nathalie said when asked how the season finale will be. “We really could feel the magnitude of what we were shooting. You just feel the weight of all the seasons being carried with us too. And the implications of certain characters feeling the same space for the first time. Everyone is so good. I’m going to be sad when it’s done.”
