After "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" actress Darlene Cates died at the age of 69 over last weekend, Leonardo DiCaprio took to Facebook to remember "the best acting mom I ever had."
The Associated Press reported that Cates died in her sleep last Sunday at her home in Texas, US.
DiCaprio, 42, was nominated for an Oscar for his role as Cates' character's son Arnie in the 1993 film, which also starred Johnny Depp as the titular character.
"Darlene was the best acting mom I ever had the privilege of working alongside," DiCaprio wrote Tuesday.
He continued, "Her endearing personality and incredible talent will live on in the memories of those who knew her, and those who loved her work. My thoughts and prayers are with her family during this difficult time."
马上学：Titular可以指“有名无实的”，而这里的titular character则表示与剧名同名的角色，比如：《不一样的天空》的英文原名是What's Eating Gilbert Grape，而Gilbert Grape正是德普在片中的角色。再比如：He played the titular role in Hamlet.（他在《哈姆雷特》中扮演哈姆雷特。）
It's increasingly looking like Adele's mammoth 2016-2017 tour will be her last. After announcing two enormous Wembley shows for this summer called "The Finale", the 28-year-old appeared to rule out future touring during the final show of her year-long tour in Auckland, New Zealand, last Sunday night.
"Touring isn't something I'm good at – applause makes me feel a bit vulnerable. I don't know if I will ever tour again," she told her audience during a rain-sodden stadium performance, according to the New Zealand Herald. "The only reason I've toured is you. I'm not sure if touring is my bag. My greatest accomplishment in my career is this tour."
马上学：Bag大家都熟悉是“书包”的意思，但它还可以表示某人喜欢、擅长的事，短语(not) somebody’s bag则可以理解为“不是某人的菜”，例如：Poetry isn't really my bag.（诗歌还真不是我的菜。）
Brooklyn Beckham, who has proclaimed photography is his "passion", will be off to study the discipline at university in September, according to The Sun.
A source told the newspaper, "Brooklyn is already pretty independent so he has few qualms about living away from his family.
"He's obviously going to miss them all but he's ready for his next adventure."
Although it is not clear which university Brooklyn is headed for later this year, the teen has previously said he would like to study in the US.
马上学：qualm表示“疑虑”、“不安”，比如：She felt some qualms about moving to the big city.（搬去大城市让她感到有些不安。）
