You should instantly follow Cole Sprouse on Instagram

Scrolling through instagram, I ran into Cole Sprouse's account and thank God for that. Since I've been obsessing over Riverdale, the same thing happend over Cole's profile .
This guy is so amazing. Full time actor, part time photographer, he often shares his work on instagram, where more than 10 milion fans can interact with his work.
But, for those who haven't seen the show, let me introduce you to him.
Named in honor of jazz singer and pianist Nat King Cole, he first catapulted into the spotlight as a child actor opposite his twin brother, Dylan. The two started on the hit Disney channel series "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody". Later on, he made his first, solo appearence as Ben, Ross Geller's son in "Friends".
Now, you can watch him in "Riverdale" where he plays super mysterious, macho man Jughead Jones, an iconic part of Archie Comics that are reimagined by The CW with Archie Horror creator Roberto Aguirre - Sacasa. 

He also joined the Chuck Taylor crew for a new "Forever Chuck" campaign, along side singer Sabrina Carpenter and model Taylor Hill.

While Sprouse's instagram story doesn't give away The Black Hood's identity, it shows us the other side of this young actor. You can scroll through this account for hours without being affraid that you'll get bored. There are photos of Kendall Jenner for The Sunday Times Style, Sam Smith for his L' Uomo Vogue cover , Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner for W Magazine.

In the interview for Teen Vogue he said:
" Maybe it was escapism, but I had become obsessed with going to remote locations and keeping myself behind the camera", noting that he thinks "that came from a personal place where I was very dissatisfied with the way my society was treating me."

Whatever the reason was, we could just thank for that. So here are some of my favourite pictures from Cole's instagram and for more, you can follow him here.
You're welcome!

Lana Turner, sex symbol & style icon of the '60s

Lana Turner was a pin - up model who become a serious dramatic actress, named the most "glamorous woman in the history of international art" in 1951. 
She started as a lead character in "Johnny Eager", "Honky Tonk", "Somewhere I'll find You". Later on, she appeared in a horror movie from 1941 "Dr Jekyll And Mr. Hyde", besides Ingrid Bergman and Spanser Tracy.
In 1957 she did "Peyton Place" for which she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress.

A reputation as a glamorous femme fatale was enchanced by her performance in the 1946's film noir "The Postman Always Rings Twice", based on James M. Cain's debut novel of the same name. A critic of The New York Times wrote it was "the role of her career."

But Lana's reaction to her sex symbol 'nickname' was quite different. She once said:
      "All those years that my image on the screen as "sex goddess" - well makes me laugh. Sex was never important to me. I'm sorry if that disappoints you, but it's true. Romance, yes. Romance was very important. But I never liked being rushed into bed, and I never allowed it. I'd put it off as long as I could and I gave in only when I was in love, or thought I was. It was always the courtship, the cuddling, and the closeness that I cared about, never the act of sex itself - with some exceptions of course. I'm not masquerading as a prude, but I've always been portrayed as a sexy woman, and that's wrong. Sensuous, yes. When I'm involved with someone I care for deeply, I can feel sensual. But that's a private matter."

Apart from her many films, her stormy personal life (7 husbands, 8 marriages - she later on joked about how: "My goal was to have one husband and seven children, but it turned out to be the other way around"), ensured always into the public eye.
Besides that, a tragedy marked her late 1950s.
On April 4, 1958, Turner's 14 year old daughter Cheryl Crane stabbed to death a small - time gangster Johnny Stompanato, Lana's current lover, after overhearing him make threats towards her mother. The Court later on ruled it as justifiable homicide. 

This didn't ruin Turner's career; on the following year she made one of better movies, "Imitation of life", and continued working in films and television for over 20 years. 
But for now, I should let the picture speak louder than words and to see what I'm talking about, check out the images below.
