He said coming out to his wife was one of the most difficult things he’s ever done. “To know that as a gay man I can get married again I’m happy,” Barnes said. “When I find that person, maybe this time it will stick.

1. JASON BLUM Founder, Blumhouse Productions With each new micro-budget hit, Jason Blum is upending the way movies are made, emphasizing thrift in exchange for artistic freedom and greater profits. He first caught Hollywood’s attention in 2009 with “Paranormal Activity,” which cost a mere $15,000 to produce and made an astounding $193.3 million globally.

AVENTINE Hollywood… Destination Delicious! (Photos)

Watch the sun set from the Grey Whale

When I was told I had to try Aventine Hollywood’s house made meatballs, I knew I had to go with it. I will be completely honest… I don’t like meatballs, I never have. I wouldn’t even eat them in Italy.
