I did go to school for Marine Biology, but the cool thing is… the greatest thing for me is that Polynesians, our gods, Kahoali, Maui, all these water gods, so it’s really cool and a honor to be playing a [water] character. And there’s not too many brown superheroes, so I’m really looking forward to representing the Polynesians, the natives.

seriously i love this big idiot and couldn’t give less than two shits about aquaman, but DAMMIT
Legendary fashion designer Oscar de La Renta has died, a family member told ABC News. He was 82.
De La Renta, who most recently designed Amal Clooney’s wedding dress, was diagnosed with cancer in 2006.

He made his name in the early 1960s when first lady Jaqueline Kennedy frequently wore his designs, and launched his own label in the mid-1960s.
