Mark Zuckerberg, 37, is one of the most influential and controversial billionaires, best-known as the founder of Facebook. While he’s been revolutionary in the way information is shared and people stay connected, he’s also been married for nearly 10 years. The tech giant married his longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan, 36, in 2012, and the pair are still together to this day! Amid their longtime romance, the pair have also worked together on a variety of projects and philanthropic efforts. Find out more about Priscilla and her relationship with Mark here!

How did Mark & Priscilla meet?

Like Mark, Priscilla was also a student at Harvard University. Unlike Mark, Priscilla graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology, while the Facebook founder left school after his sophomore year to work on the website. Priscilla was raised in Quincy, Massachusetts, a Boston suburb, by Chinese immigrant parents. She started at Harvard in 2003. Priscilla revealed that the two met while she was in line for the bathroom at a party held by Mark’s fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi in a 2010 interview with The New Yorker. “He was this nerdy guy who was just a little bit out there,” she said. “I remember he had these beer glasses that said ‘pound include beer dot H.’ It’s a tag for C++. It’s like college humor but with a nerdy, computer-science appeal.”

In his 2017, Harvard commencement address, Mark revealed that he asked her out amid scandal for his early website Facemash (which is documented in the Aaron Sorkin-penned screenplay for the film The Social Network), when he expected to be expelled from school. “Everyone thought I was going to get kicked out. My parents came to help me pack. My friends threw me a going away party,” he said, via Vox. “In what must be one of the all time romantic lines, I said: ‘I’m going to get kicked out in three days, so we need to go on a date quickly.’”

After Priscilla graduated from Harvard in 2007, she moved out to Palo Alto, California with Mark. While the pair mostly keep the details of their relationship private, Mark did reveal to The New Yorker that the pair binge-watched The West Wing (the TV series written by Aaron Sorkin) together, while vacationing together in Spain.

She co-founded the Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative

Priscilla and Mark started the charitable organization together in 2015, and Priscilla serves as co-CEO. The organization focuses on fostering science, education, community, and justice and opportunity partners, according to its website. The organization combines the background of technology and science with philanthropic efforts. “We pair technology, with grantmaking, impact investing, and collaboration to help accelerate the pace of progress towards an equitable future,” the CZI’s website says.

She married Mark in 2012

Mark and Priscilla tied the knot on May 19, 2012. The pair’s wedding was the day after Facebook’s IPO went public. Priscilla wore a dress designed by Claire Pettibone, who revealed that the dress cost $4,700 in an interview to The New York Times. The wedding also featured a surprise performance by Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day.

Mark & Priscilla have 2 daughters together

Mark announced that Priscilla gave birth to the pair’s first daughter Maxima (nicknamed “Max“) in a November 2015 Facebook post. “We’re so happy to welcome our daughter Max into this world. Everyone is happy and healthy. Thank you for all your love and support through our pregnancy. There is so much joy in our little family,” he wrote.

Priscilla gave birth to the pair’s second daughter August, 4, in August 2017. August’s mom and dad wrote a letter to her in a Facebook post announcing her birth. The parent’s encouraged her to enjoy her childhood. “You only get to be a child once, so don’t spend it worrying too much about the future. You’ve got us for that, and we’ll do everything we possibly can to make sure the world is a better place for you and all children in your generation,” they wrote.

She was a doctor

After graduating from Harvard, Priscilla went to medical school at the University of California, San Francisco from 2008 to 2012. In 2015, Mark celebrated her finishing her medical residency at San Francisco General Hospital on Facebook, via CNN. “I’m so proud of you for all of the lives you’ve saved and families you’ve touched. You’re a gift to our community, and I’m looking forward to seeing you make an even bigger impact in education, health and all your work with the underserved in your next chapter,” he wrote. Her Facebook profile also listed that she was a resident physician at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital.

Toy Story 5: What We Know About The Next Pixar Sequel

Published

on

Toy Story


The beloved ‘Toy Story’ franchise may continue with a fifth movie, and we have all the updates and information about Pixar’s potential film right here.

Is there anyone that doesn’t love the Toy Story franchise? The Pixar animated films have truly been beloved ever since Toy Story 1 came out back in 1995. The franchise follows a diverse group of alive toys — including Tim Allen‘s Buzz Lightyear and Tom Hanks‘ Sheriff Woody — that are owned by Andy Davis (John Morris) and embark on some wild adventures. The franchise, which was created by John Lasseter, Pete Doctor, Andrew Stanton, and Joe Ranft, has spawned three sequel films, Toy Story 2 (1999), Toy Story 3 (2010), and Toy Story 4 (2019). All four films have been critically acclaimed and huge box office hits. Plus, the movies been nominated for 12 Oscars total, winning 4.

Most of Toy Story‘s success is due to its iconic lineup of characters. Aside from Buzz and Woody, the films feature Mr. Potato Head (Don Rickles), Mrs. Potato Head (Estelle Harris), Slinky Dog (Jim Varney and then Blake Clark), Hamm (John Ratzenberger), Rex (Wallace Shawn), Bo Peep (Annie Potts), Jessie (Joan Cusack), and more. Other notable toy characters include Forky (Tony Hale), Wheezy (Joe Ranft), Ken (Michael Keaton), Barbie (Jodi Benson), and Stinky Pete (Kelsey Grammer).

Aside from four movies, the Toy Story franchise has also expanded to a few spinoff movies and shows, including the 2019 Disney+ series Forky Asks a Question. A spinoff movie called Lightyear, with Chris Evans voicing Buzz, will premiere on Disney+ in 2022. But what fans most want to see is Toy Story 5. So will it happen? We’ve rounded up everything to know about a possible fifth film in the Toy Story franchise.

What do we know about Toy Story 5?

So far, Pixar/Disney has not actually confirmed Toy Story 5 is happening. But considering it has only been two years since Toy Story 4 came out, a fifth film is absolutely a possibility. After all, Pixar has been putting out hit movies like OnwardSoul, and Luca lately, while Turning Red and Lightyear are coming out in 2022. So when Pixar’s release schedule slows down, it’s likely they’ll turn their attention towards Toy Story 5.

Before the fourth film came out in 2019, Tom Hanks said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that it would be his last time voicing Woody. “We were saying goodbye to Woody and Buzz…and it was emotional,” he said. That obviously saddened fans — but producer Mark Nielsen hinted at a fifth movie during Pixar’s press day for Toy Story 4. He said, “Every film we make, we treat it like it’s the first and the last film we’re ever going to make, so you force yourself to make it hold up. You don’t get in over your skis. Whether there’s another one? I don’t know. If there is, it’s tomorrow’s problem.” Tim Allen then gave fans even more hope for Toy Story 5 when he confirmed in an interview in 2019 that he’d voice Buzz again for round 5. “Once you’ve gotten to four, you’re passed that trilogy [point], so I don’t see any reason why they wouldn’t do it, certainly. If you ask me, I’d say do five,” he said, according to Cinemablend.

What can we expect from a potential Toy Story 5?

If Toy Story 5 holds true to the franchise, it will be a joyous film. It’ll be safe to assume that Tom and Tim would be back as Woody and Buzz, respectively, if the movie gets a green light. Pixar/Disney would also likely try to get the rest of the voice actors behind the franchise’s other iconic characters. The most recent Toy Story movie was directed by Josh Cooley, whose work earned the Oscar for Best Animated Feature in 2020. If Josh is back, we can expect another remarkable result.

So when would Toy Story 5 come out? It’s hard to say, but definitely not 2022. Pixar has already announced it’s two projects (Turning Red and Lightyear) for that year. The film studio has also confirmed that three untitled movies will be released across 2023 and 2024, and it’s unlikely any of them are Toy Story 5. The film’s month release could really go either way, as well, considering the first two movies came out in November, while the next two dropped in June. All in all, we probably have a few years to go until we get Toy Story 5. But that doesn’t mean our anticipation will be fading! Buzz and Woody, we look forward to (hopefully) seeing you again.

Tim Burton & Helena Bonham Carter’s Rarely Seen Kids Billy Ray, 18, & Nell, 13, Attend Film Screening


The ‘Corpse Bride’ director’s children joined him on the red carpet at the Rome Film Festival, for a tribute to Tim Burton.

Tim Burton was a proud dad, as he posed on the red carpet with his son Billy Ray, 18, and daughter Nell, 13, at the Rome Film Fest on Saturday October 23. The 63-year-old director and his little ones were attending a “Close Encounters” salute to his films at the Italian movie festival. The director seemed very happy as he stood with both of his kids (plus their dog!) around his arms.

Fitting to the director’s dark style of filmmaking, Tim and the kids were all dressed in black. The Dumbo director rocked a suit with a black and blue patterned shirt underneath, along with his huge pair of glasses. Billy also wore a black suit and held up the family dog Levi for an adorable red carpet bonus. Nell gave off total Wednesday Addams vibes with her old-fashioned-styled black dress with a white collar, and a pair of elevated black, platform boots. She also held a large white purse on the red carpet.

Tim shares Billy Ray and  Nell with his ex Helena Bonham Carter, whom he was with from 2001 until 2014. Billy was named after both Tim’s father William, and Helena’s dad Raymond. Nell was named “after all the Helens in the family,” The Crown actress told The Jewish Journal in 2008, via People. Tim’s relationship with the Fight Club actress was probably his most well-known, as the two worked together on a number of projects including Sweeney Todd, Planet of the Apes, Corpse Bride, and other movies. The Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children director had been married to German artist Lena Gieseke from 1987 to 1991. He also dated Lisa Marie, whom he collaborated with on his movies Ed WoodSleepy Hollow, and Mars Attack! Prior to getting together with Tim, Helena had dated English actor Kenneth Branagh for about five years, before they split up in 1999.
