Maria Sharapova still doesn't care about being 'a nice girl in the locker room'

Maria Sharapova still doesn't care about being 'a nice girl in the locker room'
I?m not a Maria Sharapova fan. I?ll just say that at the onset. I haven?t missed Sharapova in the past year, during which she was banned for testing positive for a banned substance, meldonium. Sharapova had been taking meldonium for years, but as of January 2016, it was put on the banned list and Sharapova didn?t read the updated banned-substances list as thoroughly as she needed to, or at least that was her excuse. She was supposed to be banned from professional tennis for two years, but her sentence was later appealed and brought down to 16 months. That means Sharapova – who turns 30 in April – will be able to play some tournaments in the clay-court season. She?s already scheduled to play Stuttgart and the French Open.

So, to celebrate her return, Maria granted an interview to Vogue in what she probably hopes will be the first part of her rehabilitation – the rehabing of her image, that is. The thing is? even thought Vogue wants to paint Sharapova?s return as some grand portrait of struggle over adversity, I just don?t think anyone missed her and I don?t think anyone is truly looking forward to her return. Except for the advertisers, maybe. That?s pretty clear: Sharapova was, at the time of her banning, the highest-paid female athlete in the world. Nevermind that Serena Williams is arguably the most dominant female athlete of all time, Maria was always the highest-paid when it came to endorsements. Because she?s pretty and blonde. And all of Sharapova?s endorsements are coming back this year. Who cares about doping when there?s a pretty blonde on court, right? Anyway, you can read the full Vogue piece here. Some highlights:

Her 15 months off the court: ?This past year, my intake of alcohol was so much more than ever in my life. But it was because I actually had a social life!?

Tennis is not her religion: ?I think I?d go crazy if I was only a tennis player. Seriously.?

She doesn?t have friends on the tour. ?I spend as little time in the locker room as I can get away with, because I?ve set up another life. I have family, I have friends. And the less time I spend there, the more energy I have for them. I?m respected for what I do on the court, and that?s much more meaningful to me than someone saying that I?m a nice girl in a locker room.?

These are the people contacted for the Vogue piece but wouldn?t go on the record to writer Jonathan Van Meter: ?Chris Evert, Billie Jean King, Martina Navratilova, Mary Carillo, and Pam Shriver all declined to talk to me about Sharapova.?

On her meldonium usage: ?I had been taking it for ten years and for about seven of those years I had gotten a written certificate from a WADA-accredited lab that all the substances I was taking were totally fine for me to take. I just became completely comfortable that they were fine. That?s the mistake I made: being too comfortable.?

Whether she believes she?ll still have a cloud of suspicion over her head: ?I think if I was trying to hide something, I don?t think I would come out to the world and say I was taking a drug for ten years. If I was really trying to take the easy way out, that?s not a very smart thing to do? But the answer to your question is, absolutely.?

Whether she ever talks to her Russian family about politics & the election: ?Not at all; we never discuss politics. I carry such a big part of my country in my soul. When I host people at home, I think of my grandmother?s afternoon tea. I remember being around books?Tolstoy, Pushkin, my mother reciting poetry. That?s the piece of Russia that I have in me.?

Her rivalry with Serena Williams: ?We?re not celebrated as two women with completely different backgrounds who have created incredible opportunities for ourselves and our families. Instead we are ranked against each other for our differences, our game, our earnings. I think the concept of lists and the amount that players make is bollocks. It would be so easy when you?ve gone through injuries and setbacks to just let it all go. But to have that desire still? The amount of respect that I have for her as an athlete is enormous.?

Breaking off her engagement with Grigor Dimitrov: She has been pretty much single since she and Dimitrov broke up. It did not end well. But one night a couple of months ago she ran into him in New York City. They hadn?t seen each other since the summer of 2015. ?We closed down a restaurant after talking for five hours,? she says. ?He was such an important part of my life, and he?s a very delicate, complicated person. It was so nice to just be normal human beings.?

She believes she?s well-liked by fans: ?Ever since all this happened, I?ve had so many strangers actually come up to me. Like chefs coming out of the kitchen, or pilots come out of the cockpit to say something. It is so heartening. I?ve had tunnel vision about my career, and I don?t think I ever realized the effect I?ve had on people. That has blown my mind.?

What speaks volumes to me is that it?s mostly left up to Sharapova to tell Jonathan Van Meter about how much people have missed her and how the fans are really looking forward to seeing her. Like, Chrissy Evert isn’t saying that. Martina isn?t saying that. Billie Jean isn?t saying that. No one on the WTA tour is saying that. They could only really get Paul Annacone – who is Roger Federer?s former coach – to say that yeah, people missed Sharapova and those people are mostly advertisers. I understand that, sort of – Sharapova is a known quantity and I guess advertisers would rather rebuild their relationship with her as opposed to developing relationships with truly inspiring younger players like Garbine Muguruza (who is ADORABLE), Karolina Pliskova (who is utterly charming) or Monica Puig (Olympic gold and she?s very pretty). So, yeah? Sharapova?s back. But for how long? How far will she go in the French? I bet she doesn?t even make it to the fourth round.

Jake Gyllenhaal believes that aliens 'absolutely' exist

Jake Gyllenhaal believes that aliens 'absolutely' exist
Has Jake Gyllenhaal gone completely method on us? The 36-year-old actor is making the promotional rounds for his upcoming sci-fi/horror flick, Life, where he plays an astronaut fighting a nasty alien life form picked up from Mars that is set on destroying the earth. In preparation for his role, Jake consulted with astronauts, trauma doctors and even worked with a zero-gravity-movement coach to effectively convey the physical and mental toll that space travel takes on a person. But, as far as the existence of life on other planets, Jake feels that we may not be alone out there. Jake told the New York Daily News that, ?I believe there?s so much yet to be explored. I think absolutely, there is no doubt in my mind ? whether or not they?re friendly or already here ? I think there?s a lot left to explore.?

As for making a movie that sounds like something we’ve all seen a million times before, Jake promises that the film will thrill. He told The Guardian that Life‘s screenplay left him ?legitimately terrified.? But, after dramatic turns in serious movies like Nocturnal Animals and Nightcrawler, Jake just wanted a little fun, confessing ?after playing role after role where I?ve given a ton of time in preparation, I made a resolution to just enjoy myself making a big, fun movie.?

There was lots of fun on the set, especially between Jake and his Life co-star, Ryan Reynolds. Jake told Variety at the film’s SXSW screening, ?We were laughing all the time. None of us, with the exception of me, takes themselves that seriously, so there was a really wonderful spirit on set the whole time.? In fact, Jake and Ryan have developed quite the bromance. Ryan told Good Morning America that ?He?s easily the most interesting actor working in Hollywood today.” He went on to say Jake was one of his favorite actors, as well as “one of the kindest guys I?ve ever met. We?re hanging out all the time. We live near each other. I live up in the ‘burbs.? And, to prove his affection for his friend/co-star, Ryan laid down the gauntlet, telling GMA that Jake is a better cook than his wife, actress Blake Lively. ?My wife is very good at cooking, and Jake might just be a little bit better. He can throw down. It gets very competitive.? If I were Blake, those would definitely be fighting words. I can’t begin to tell you how many cooking challenges Kevin and I have gone head-to-head on (and I must admit, we’re about 50/50 on wins and losses).

If Jake’s not busy enough, Jake has been burning up the Broadway stage with his performance as painter Georges Seurat in the revival of the Sondheim musical Sunday in the Park with George. Of his stage work, he told the Daily News he’s “finally found my home in a lot of ways,” adding, ?It?s been an incredible journey to Broadway with this piece and unexpected in all the best ways, and it feels like that every night too. It couldn?t really get any better to tell you the truth.? The theater nerd in me is delighted for Jake’s Broadway success. Not sure about Life, but two hours with Jake and Ryan can’t be all bad, right?
