Mike Myers - Mike Myers To Receive Stamp Honour In Canada

Comedian Mike Myers has been honoured with his own postage stamp in his native Canada.

The Shrek star's face will grace the nation's 85 cent stamp, which will also feature Myers' three most famous film characters: Wayne Campbell from Wayne's World and Austin Powers/Dr. Evil from the Austin Powers movie franchise.

The stamp, which will debut this summer (14), is the first in a series celebrating Canadian comedians. Other honourees have yet to be announced.

The proud actor says, "I can't believe it... It's unbelievably flattering. I just wanna thank whoever in the Canadian government decided to put this idiot on a stamp."

However, Myers reveals the news failed to impress his mother Alice, a native of Liverpool, England, and he was a little disappointed with her reaction.

He explains, "My parents are from Liverpool... and if Liverpool had an unofficial motto, it'd be, 'Who do you think you are?'.

"So I called and I said, 'Hey mum, the Canadian government is issuing a stamp with my face on it,' and she was like, 'Um, is anyone else getting a stamp?' I said, 'No...' and she said, 'What denomination is it?'. (I said), 'I don't know, 20 cents?'. (She replied), 'Twenty cents?' I go, 'Is that bad?'.

"She literally said, 'Is it legal tender?'. I'm sure if you got enough Mike Myers stamps you could buy a car... (But) I'm on a stamp! She said, 'Do you not know anyone else who is on a stamp?' I go, 'Yeah, one other person - Her Majesty the Queen!'"

An image of the country's head of state, Britain's Queen Elizabeth Ii, typically features on all other stamps in Canada, a former British colony which is now part of the Commonwealth.

SuperMensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon 4289630 Film Reviews

For his lively film directing debut, Mike Myers (aka Austin Powers) traces the remarkable life of his friend, the almost too-likeable music manager Shep Gordon. A mensch is a really nice guy, and this film documents how Gordon has created a makeshift family of loyal friends around him, even though he's never had a proper family of his own. It's an engaging movie that reminds audiences that the most important thing in life is certainly not fame.

Shep Gordon came to Los Angeles as a young man and happened to stay in the same hotel where Joplin, Hendrix and Morrison were hanging out. Quickly getting involved in their blurry world of drugs and money, Shep won over everyone he met simply because of his integrity and generosity. As a manager, he lived the high-life with high-powered girlfriends like Sharon Stone (who introduced him to Buddhism) and a Playboy Playmate wife. He helped Groucho Marx sort out his finances, and worked with lifelong pal Alice Cooper to create Cooper's iconic on-stage persona. And he's still considered one of the best fix-it men in the business. His home in Maui is a bolt-hole for any of his celebrity buddies who are trying to escape the limelight.

The film is assembled with a snappy rhythm that catches a sense of Shep's fast-paced lifestyle. It's packed with great film clips, hilarious home movies and even a few re-enactments. But the best stories are told by the starry interviewees who clearly adore Shep and recount riotous backstage anecdotes about their experiences with him, as well as his larger-than-life personality and unstoppable libido. The most jaw-dropping story is about how he ramped up clean-cut Canadian singer Anne Murray's reputation and career by having her photographed with super-cool lothario Teddy Pendergrass. But with a life this high-flying, Shep has never found a life partner or had his own children. Although he has become a father figure to his ex-wife's kids, essentially raising them himself.

Yes, there's a lot to Shep's story, and Myers playfully litters the film with big names and infamous events while quietly noting that Shep himself doesn't quite realise that he has built up a massive family around him over the decades. By taking on the business thugs who controlled the music business, he changed the industry forever, helping musicians earn more of their own profits. And he did the same thing for chefs, propelling the likes of Emeril Lagasse to global fame. Through all of this, Shep emerges as an unusually thoughtful man who has become a success simply because he never abandoned his friends. Which is something everyone should aspire to.

Supermensch: The Legend Of Shep Gordon 4261297 Videos 27th June 2014

Shep Gordon may not be as famous as some of the biggest celebrities in the world, but you can bet they count him among their closest friends. A popular Jewish music manager who took on the career after meeting Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, Shep's first subject was shock rocker Alice Cooper in 1965. Since then, his Hollywood career has exploded having also worked alongside the likes of Pink Floyd, Luther Vandross, Blondie, Ann Murray and others. Not only that, but Shep instigated the breakthrough of celebrity chefs and also become close personal friends with the 14th Dalai Lama during his venture into Buddhism. Now, though, after a life of luxury and living other people's lives, this 'mensch' as his star friends call him (a Yiddish word essentially meaning 'a good person') is looking for a life of his own.

'Supermensch: The Legend Of Shep Gordon' is an entertaining documentary based on the life and career of one of the world's most ingenius talent managers. It serves as the directorial debut of comic actor Mike Myers (star of 'Austin Powers' and 'Wayne's World') alongsde his Emmy winning directing partner Beth Aala ('Pool Party'). The movie is scheduled for UK release on July 18th 2014.

Mike Myers And Wife, Kelly, Welcome Baby Daughter 4151789 News

Yeh Baby!

Mike Myers and his wife, Kelly, welcomed their second child into the world on Friday (April 11th).

They are now parents to a healthy baby daughter called Sunday Molly.

"We couldn't be happier," the happy couple told People magazine in a joint statement.

Mike and Kelly announced that they are expecting their second child last October (2013).

At the time Myers spoke to Deadline about always wanting to become a father, even if it is later on in his life, while promoting his directorial debut in an American documentary film about talent manager 'Shep Gordon', called 'Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon.'

"Anyone who tells you fatherhood is the greatest thing that can happen to you, they are understating it," he said. "I knew I wanted to be a father, I didn't know it was going to be this awesome or that my kid would come out so beautiful and lovely."

The documentary's main focus is on fatherhood and Mike stated: "Shep and I have had many conversations about fatherhood, he is the ambassador of babies. I'd tell him about a movie and he's say, 'Great Mike, so when are you going to have kids?' I'd say, yeah, umm, well... I had a great dad and always wanted to have the experience and I'm having it now... It's no accident that my unbelievable gift of becoming a dad is connected to Shep's story.

London is to have a brand new attraction based on Dreamworks' Shrek animated movies in collaboration with the company behind the famous London Eye, according to The Guardian.

In a statement, Dreamworks and Merlin explain that Shrek's Far Far Away Adventure "will feature a Shrek interactive walk-through adventure, a character courtyard where visitors will be able to meet Shrek and his swamp friends, along with characters from Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda and How to Train Your Dragon."

"The 20,000-square-foot experience will be based on a brand-new adventure being written by the DreamWorks team," revealed the studio and partner. "We're excited to work with Merlin to build something that we think is going to be a singularly unique way to experience Shrek and his world," said DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg.

Mike Myers Is Expecting Second Baby With Wife Kelly Tisdale 3909586 News

Canadian actor, Mike Myers and his wife, Kelly Tisdale are expecting baby No.2.

The couple's rep confirmed the news and they told People, "We are thrilled."

The 'Austin Powers' star began dating Kelly in 2006, after his divorce from comedy writer Robin Ruzan in 2005, they married four years later at a private ceremony held in New York City.

Myers must be enjoying parenthood as he hasn't starred in a major Hollywood film for the last several years.

In 2010 the funny man returned to voice the big green ogre in the 3rd Shrek film titled, 'Shrek Forever After', and then appeared in Quentin Tarantino's 2009 war drama 'Inglorious Bastards,' but only played a small role.

The 'Wayne's World' actor's most recent project is his directorial debut of an American documentary film about talent manager 'Shep Gordon', called 'Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon', which debuted at the 2013 Toronto Film Festival.

Myers recently spoke to Deadline about always wanting to become a father, even if it is later on in his life;

"Anyone who tells you fatherhood is the greatest thing that can happen to you, they are understating it," he said. "I knew I wanted to be a father, I didn't know it was going to be this awesome or that my kid would come out so beautiful and lovely."

Michael Bay's action movie - which stars Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf - is up for the largest number of gongs along with Will Ferrell's flop 'Land of the Lost', which is also up for seven 'honours'.

Despite raking in a fortune at the box office, the 'Transformers' sequel is up for Worst Picture of 2009, while Fox is nominated in the Worst Actress category and her on-screen romance with LaBeouf earned them a nod for Worst Screen Couple.

Their co-star Julie White is up for Worst Supporting Actress, filmmaker Bay found himself on the shortlist for Worst Director, and the movie was also put forward for the Worst Remake, Rip-off or Sequel award and Worst Screenplay.
