Here’s today’s dispatch from the crossroads of faith, media and culture.
Doing well while doing good. You may not know Eloise DeJoria by name but chances are you know her face from movies like Weekend at Bernie’s, Grand Champion, Don’t Mess with the Zohan, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, and Wild Hearts. Angels Sing, her latest film, was released this past and is based on bestselling Turk Pikpin Christmas book When Angels Sing. The film stars Harry Connick, Jr., Connie Britton, Lyle Lovett, Marcia Ball, Kris Kristofferson, and Willie Nelson (with whom she made her movie debut in Songwriter).Currently living in Austin, Texas (where Angels Sing was filmed) with her billionaire husband John Paul DeJoria, an entrepreneur and philanthropist perhaps best known for co-founding Paul Mitchell line of hair care products. But, as Eloise told me during a recent conversation promoting the Angels Sing DVD, what gives the couple their greatest joy is philanthropy. John Paul and Eloise operate under the credo that “Success unshared is failure.” Organizations they support include such diverse causes as the Austen Children’s Center, Food 4 Africa, The Palmer Drug Abuse Program, Help Clifford Help Kids, The Long Center for the Performing Arts, The Austin Film Society and Amnesty International. But none of the causes they give to is nearer and dearer to their hearts than The Arbor Recovery Center in Georgetown, Texas.
