THR 100: Hollywood's Most Powerful People Reveal the One Thing They Can't Live Without (From Gummy Bears to 'Godfather')
Everyone has something -- whether it's coffee or a hug from Grandma.
Nearly every one has a vice, or at least something they can't get through a single day without. The same goes for even the most powerful industry executives and stars in Hollywood, all of which The Hollywood Reporter gathered for the inaugural THR 100.
For a lot of them, the answer is in the form of a beverage. Anonymous Content founder Steve Golin, ICM founding partner Chris Silbermann, Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn, Sony Entertainment CEO Michael Lynton, Hulu CEO Mike Hopkins and more all said coffee.
Diet Coke was also a popular choice, being named as an essential part of their day by Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group chairman Tom Rothman, Skydance Productions founder and CEO David Ellison and DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg.
Relatable enough, right? The same goes for other popular choices such as cell phones (NBCUniversal vice chairman Ron Meyer even has to return every email and phone call), talking to their children and working out.
While writer/executive producer Ryan Murphy can't indeed go a day without his children, he also can't go without browsing 1stdibs.com. "It's a furniture site, and it's my addiction," he told THR.
Melissa McCarthy also can't miss out on a trip to the internet -- particularly her daily visits to Etsy. "I bought a beautiful blanket from a woman who knits in Poland," she told THR. "I bought old French antiques from somebody in a little tiny town. I get all these weird vintage things. It's literally the best thing." She feels the same about Pinterest, too.
Then there's 21st Century Fox CEO James Murdoch and executive chairman Lachlan Murdoch, who can't go a day without changing something.
