Miguel Herrán: “Money has not made me happy, it has dirtied me as a person” | ICON

Up to the sky It begins as a social drama when Ángel (Miguel Herrán) looks at the skyscrapers of Chamartín from his neighborhood and exclaims: “Surely from there we look like ants.” But it becomes a frenetic thriller action (or what was formerly called a americanada) when Ángel turns to organized crime to get to the top. “His ambition is excessive, he doesn’t conform and he always wants more,” explains the actor. “When he steals five million euros, the option of laundering them and losing half is, in his head, a mediocre life. And he realizes that the sky has no limit ”. The paper house already glorified the rebellion of the poor who rob the rich not to overthrow the system, but to place themselves on top of it, and Miguel Herrán has become famous (14 million people follow on Instagram, the population of a medium-sized country) interpreting ants with elephant pretenses. River in The paper house got into a love robbery, Christian in Elite he went where it was necessary for fame. But what does Miguel feel from up there? Among other things, envy of ants.

“I get money from Instagram, obviously, because you’re an asshole if you don’t take advantage of it. Right now, the prime time television has fewer viewers than Ester Exposito’s Instagram “

The story of its origins is too cinematic to be true and too raw to be invented. “I was the typical kid what. He didn’t want to work, he didn’t want to study. Back then I would go out a lot, I would spend many nights out with colleagues, and on one of those we ran into Dani [Guzmán, director de su debut A cambio de nada]. He offered us the film and I told him that it was made for free, my only motivation was to laugh and hesitate to the architect of There is no one living here at three in the morning. I didn’t know what a casting and he hardly understood the word ‘face-to-face’, he remembers. To the first casting He presented himself “with a peach hit” (“it was a dark room in a basement, I thought they were going to rape us”), the second “high”, the third he did not go and the fourth appeared “in a dubious way.” But since Guzmán did not stop giving him opportunities, Herrán decided to take something seriously for the first time in his life. The happy ending is that he ended up winning a Goya at age 19 (which he thanked Guzmán: “You have given me a life, Daniel”) and signing for the two most famous Spanish series in the world.

Herrán has commented that she would like to tell the life of her mother in a film, because she admires that she never threw in the towel before a son “very bastard, a true son of a bitch” and before a people that rejected her for being a single mother. “If I tell you the things I did before, it would not fit you with the person I am now. She hated life, she hated the world. I had a way of being quite a bitch and at the moment I am afraid to tell it, because I did things that I am not proud of. I would get up, look at myself in the mirror and I didn’t like how he was, or what he did, or how he treated people, or how I treated myself, ”he reveals. This self-destructive character, for which he confesses that he came to think that if he were dead everything would improve, found in the interpretation a motivation to get out of bed in the morning. The self-esteem, however, is still a work in progress: from not wanting to be present, Herrán has gone to not knowing how to be present.



Miguel Herrán wears Prada.

“It is hard for me to be here and now. I am always thinking about what to do next, without enjoying the moment. I do a lot of things throughout the day and I’m not into any. I want to be able to be in this interview without wondering what consequences my answers will have, “he admits,” That’s why I like extreme sports, because in those moments I feel alive. When I am descending a mountain with the bike or the motorcycle I know that if I am not aware of the contact of the wheel with the ground, how I am going to fall or the suspension I am going to get a host. And I do not want to put a host “. That is already a step forward. The other pending issue for Miguel Herrán is managing the vigorexia he suffered in adolescence, when his friends nicknamed him “Conan the Barbarian”, and which still haunts him when he looks in the wrong mirror.

“I have noticed that people think that my life is cock, that I have fucked Ester Expósito and Úrsula Corberó, and that I cannot complain. The money has not made me happy, it has given me more worries”

“Every summer is the talk with my colleagues: how is my body, if I am bigger or more defined. And I always tell them that the sad thing is that they with their belly and their beers are ten times happier with their body than I am, ”he laments. Sometimes you feel like you’ve lost muscle overnight. “It all depends on the head,” he says. And of the light, of course. And of the light! I didn’t want to say it so as not to sound freaky, but I have mirrors in which I am forbidden to look at myself with certain lights because I know I am going to obsess. It is a continuous obsession, because once you start you don’t stop. When I travel by motorcycle I carry a suitcase with weights. And during quarantine I bought myself a TRX, a bench, and more weights. I gained five kilos of muscle, but at the end of the confinement I said ‘fuck it’. I have an obsession, but I’m not an asshole either. There have been times when I have not been able to control it. In The paper house There came a time when if I stooped my monkey would burst. They asked me to stop and I told them it’s okay, but I wouldn’t stop. When they told me that I was older, I replied that it was his perception, ”he confesses.

When the filming of Up to the sky Miguel stopped working out for the first time in a decade. Because his project of being comfortable in his own skin involves getting him to stop caring so much about the approval of others. When last year he published a video on Instagram in which he left crying without saying a word, his fans insisted on rescuing him just as Tokyo rescued him in The paper house. Meanwhile, the media showed a concern that attracted so many clicks as speculations about his emotional state. As if speculation was required. He himself tells it with total peace of mind to anyone who wants to listen to it: “I wanted to show that when nobody sees me I have my problems, I have noticed that people think that my life is cock, that I have fucked Ester Exposito and Úrsula Corberó, and that I cannot complain. Money has not made me happy It has taken away a lot of happiness and has given me more worries than when I didn’t have it. It has made me more ambitious. Money has made me dirty as a person. I do not value it. In the rest I am the same or worse ”, he clarifies.

Actor Miguel Herrán, like the devil, wears Prada.


Actor Miguel Herrán, like the devil, wears Prada.

Money also allows him to choose projects without pressure – doing things without pressure is what Miguel Herrán needs the most right now – which makes him feel lucky because he has seen how other actors his age worked reluctantly because their families exploited them. “I get money from Instagram, obviously, because you’re an asshole if you don’t take advantage of it,” he declares. “Right now, the prime time television has fewer viewers than Ester Exposito’s Instagram. Netflix gave us two iPhones and two cameras to create content while filming [de Élite]” In one of her stories recent, Herrán recorded a paparazzo That I was chasing him so he would know what it feels like.

This constant exposure is implicit in the public image of all the actors of his generation, although sometimes it gets out of hand like on that occasion when Herrán had to interpret a scene with a partner who gave him the reply, outside of camera, while looking at the mobile. “It is a yoke that we put on, needing the acceptance of the more people the better. As I have had moments of becoming addicted and of waking up badly if I did not have the likes that I wanted to have, one day I took it and said, with all the affection of my heart: ‘Come on and screw it up’. My life is my life and I can’t be trying to please everyone. It’s not my job, I don’t like it, I don’t enjoy it ”. And, of course, one of the few things that Miguel Herrán is clear about is that what he most wants is to enjoy himself.

“I went up behind and touched my bra.” Details of the story about a Perm teacher who was given 9 years for harassing a student

– It is difficult to build forecasts, but I believe in the best. I feel sorry for mom, she is very worried, it has been going on for more than a year, – said “KP» 49-year-old math teacher Valery Syropyatov and, with a sigh, he entered the courtroom.

On Monday in the Ordzhonikidze court Perm the teacher was sentenced under the article “Violent acts of a sexual nature”. The sentence is 9 years and 6 months in a maximum security colony.

“The girl begged the three”

This ugly story happened in March last year in a Perm school. According to the teacher, she looked like this:

– In the seventh grade, where the girl studied, I taught mathematics for the first year. In the first quarter, she deceived me, I believed and put the “troika”. But there must be an educational moment. I told her that now she will hand over all the work in the sequence in which they are studied. And until we get to the control for the third quarter, the final mark at her will not be!

On that day, March 27, several students came to the mathematician to take the “tails”.

“Everyone sat at their desks and did the work, and once again she decided to slip away,” the teacher continues. – I began to ask myself, said that her stomach ached, her head … I insisted: “Decide the control, get your” threefold “and you can step on all four sides. If it’s inconvenient for you to study in the classroom – the children are noisy – let’s go to another office. ” We left, she stood at the table and again began to whine. I sit at the table and tell her: “Go, decide!” The man does not leave, I waved. I am sitting, she is standing – where will i get? Here in the belt on the side with the back of the hand and hit. It turned out cotton. I admitted this, and was removed by the director from teaching in this class. I apologized and believed that the incident had been exhausted.

Soon, the information got into law enforcement. First, criminal proceedings were instituted for Art. Art. 135 of the Criminal Code RF “Depraved actions”, and after six months the investigations were re-qualified as more serious, Art. 132 “Violent acts of a sexual nature.”

At each meeting, teachers supported

To the court – at each hearing in the Valery case Syropyatova – a support group gathered: former graduates, colleagues, parents of students … 17 of them acted as witnesses from the defense. They all said that they could not believe the guilt of their beloved teacher. He does not smoke, does sports, organizes excursions around the Perm Territory and cities for children Of Russiaorganizes competitions in rogain, tourist trips, alloys, fees …

Despite all the kind words spoken to the defendant, the state prosecution requested 13 years of imprisonment for him.

Valery Syropyatov on the day the sentence was announced, we met near the courthouse. He was light, without things. As the teacher himself explained, he believed that the court would figure it out and justify it.

“I’ve already checked in, now I’ll take a little walk, breathe in fresh air, mentally tune in and go,” he explained before entering the courtroom.

Despite the fact that the process was closed, the journalists and the support group were allowed to announce the verdict.

It was impossible to understand what the teacher experienced at that moment when the judge said “nine and a half years in a maximum security colony”, the teacher’s face was hidden under a mask. And the former graduates and colleagues who were present at the announcement somehow immediately went down. Someone could not hold back tears.

– Do you understand the verdict and the procedure for appealing against it?

“Yes, your honor,” the convict answered calmly.

At that moment, three escorts entered the courtroom. Knowing the rules of staying in places of deprivation of liberty — the teacher spent three days in a pre-trial detention center while the investigation was under way — the teacher began to unfasten his belt in order to remove it, took money from his pockets, a cell phone and gave it to a relative. The guards locked handcuffs on his hands, and asked all those present to leave the courtroom.

I closed and he pushed my hands away

– The criminal case was considered in closed court, so we can’t explain the details, you heard the verdict, the evidence that the prosecution presented to the court was enough to plead guilty to a particularly serious crime against the sexual integrity of a minor, therefore the sentence so big – said assistant to the prosecutor of the Ordzhonikidze district of Perm, Dmitry Shishkin. – And that slap, and the version that the defendant himself told everyone about, including in the media, is a way of protection.

As it became known to “Komsomolskaya Pravda” from a source familiar with the materials of the criminal case, one of the evidence presented in court was the correspondence of the seventh grader with his girlfriend in social networks. Late in the evening on the day of math retaking, the schoolgirl wrote to her close friend that she was at school, and the teacher took her to a separate office, put her at her desk, walked up behind and began to touch her bra.

“I sat at the table, he was at the back and was pawing me,” she wrote. – I tried to close my hands, and he pushed his hands and touched me by the chest.

Experts examined the girl for bruises and the only thing found on her body was a small scratch on her finger.

The accusation was also based on the words of the girl, her mother and friend. Investigators also found a video from school surveillance cameras, which shows how one of the schoolgirls told Valery Nikolaevich that she had passed the debt, and he leaned over and began to say in her ear that she was good. This was interpreted later as a kiss.

During the investigation, a forensic medical examination was carried out, the biological traces of the teacher on the things of the victim were not found. The teacher was also tested for a tendency to pedophilia, but the result was negative.

WP reported the death of the US military due to the “conspiracy” of Russia and the Taliban :: Politics :: RBC

During the meeting, the Trump administration’s special envoy for Afghanistan, Zalmay Khalilzad, insisted on a direct appeal to the Kremlin on interaction with the Taliban. Other members of the National Security Council in charge of Russia opposed such actions. What decision was made as a result is not reported.

According to WP, in 2018, ten U.S. military personnel were killed in Afghanistan. In 2019, the United States lost 16 people, and in 2020 – two.

Earlier, on June 27, The New York Times (NYT), citing sources, reported that US intelligence several months ago concluded that Russia was offering the Taliban-linked militants an award for killing American employees.

The White House says Trump has no evidence of collusion between Russia and the Taliban

The Russian Foreign Ministry called the NYT article “unpretentious stuffing” and “nonsense,” recalling that US intelligence “failed” a 20-year operation in Afghanistan.

After that, the official representative of the Taliban, Zabikhulla Mujahid, denied information about Russia’s involvement in the activities of the movement. The Taliban felt that in this way the US is trying to create an excuse to stop the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan.

US President Donald Trump called the NYT article custom-made, noted that intelligence did not report to him or to Vice President Mike Pence about the organization of Russian attacks on the US military in Afghanistan. The head of the White House compared the publication to a duck about Kremlin interference in the presidential election in 2016.

Gref called his worst nightmare return to the government :: Business :: RBC

The head of Sberbank German Gref said that he did not consider it possible to return to the government. According to him, after ten years, he does not see himself in Sberbank

Answering a question from the TASS agency, how does he see his worst nightmare, Gref replied: “Honestly? I am returning to the government. ” According to him, after ten years, he does not intend to work either in Sberbank, or in any other large company.

“In addition to working at the bank, there was another happy period in my life – teaching at the university. Maybe I’ll be back in the field of education. I’m interested in technology, venture capital investments, ”said Gref.

Commenting on the work of the cabinet in the context of the coronavirus pandemic, Gref compared it with what happened in 1998. “The government cannot be envied, if only for the reason that in the second week of its existence, he got the coronavirus. One can only compare this with the default of 1998, which occurred shortly after the arrival of Sergei Kiriyenko in the White House, ”said the head of Sberbank.

Gref predicted a sharp ruble appreciation by the end of the year

According to Gref, in the midst of quarantine, the Cabinet of Ministers “worked, without exaggeration, 20 hours a day” in search of solutions to the situation.

“No one expected such stress. The worst thing at that moment is inaction. He was absent. A series of actions may have turned out to be vain and incorrect, as we understand with a hind mind, but then it seemed that these were absolutely correct reactions, ”Gref said.

He appreciated the head of Sberbank and the actions of the Central Bank, which, according to him, “worked very well.” “The necessary steps were taken in time, which allowed us to untie our hands a bit and support our customers. We carried out a gigantic restructuring as soon as possible, renewed as many loans in a week as in the whole of 2019 – more than a trillion rubles for legal entities, ”Gref said.

In 2000-2007, German Gref headed the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade. Prior to that, he worked in various positions in the government of the country and the administration of St. Petersburg.

Lukashenko said Moscow understands the situation with Gazprom Bank :: Politics :: RBC

According to the president, he was struck that during searches in the bank, law enforcement officers found that “in all the main cells there were flash drives, hard drives and mountains of documents” that store a “huge layer of information”. The Belarusian authorities, according to Lukashenko, learned about what was happening at the bank in December last year, and it was not possible to arrest Babariko earlier, since there was no evidence base. He also added that if “the Americans did not put pressure on the Latvian bank last year,” Belarus would hardly have received information about fraud.

Lukashenko’s main opponent detained in Minsk

On June 11, searches were held at the head office of the financial organization. Employees of the State Control Committee (KGK) of Belarus seized more than $ 4 million and securities worth more than $ 500 thousand, and also detained 15 people. KGC said that Babariko was involved in illegal activities that led to searches and criminal proceedings. The latter are instituted under Art. 235 (legalization of funds obtained by criminal means on an especially large scale) and Art. 243 of the Criminal Code (tax evasion on an especially large scale).

On June 18, Babariko was detained; he is suspected of influencing witnesses and concealing evidence of crimes, as well as participating in money laundering.

Ivan Tertel, Chairman of the State Control Committee of Belarus, said that “puppeteers” from Gazprom or “even higher” stand for Babariko. In response, the press secretary of the Russian president Dmitry Peskov asked to argue this statement, recalling that the largest Russian companies are protected by the state.

Babariko himself called the raids a raid and claimed that it was a campaign directed directly against him.

very cheap and long-known drugs help save the lungs with coronavirus

Cloving hospital on the basis of the Medical Scientific and Educational Center (ISSC) Moscow State University named after M.V.Lomonosov took the first patients on April 21 and completed his work on June 13. It turned out that it was possible to achieve the best treatment results for COVID-19 in Moscow. Over the entire period, 4 patients died, and among severe patients who got mechanical ventilation, the mortality rate was less than 14% (for comparison, the average for the city and the world was up to 70 – 80%). Eighteen doctors out of 220 employees of the hospital were infected with coronavirus, there were no deaths among the medical staff.

What approaches were used at the University Hospital of Moscow State University to achieve such results? We continue the conversation with the head. Department of Therapy, Faculty of Fundamental Medicine, Moscow State University, Head of the Department of Age-Associated Diseases, Medical Scientific and Educational Center, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Cardiologist Yana Orlova.

MEDICINE FOR COUGH FOR 80 RUBLES

– Most of those who are ill or are afraid to get sick are worried about fibrotic changes in their lungs. They say that you have developed special therapy that can reduce the risk of developing fibrosis. Is it possible?!

– Yes, we launched an appropriate clinical study. There are no final results yet, but we have developed clinical practice.

“What did you do to save the lungs?”

– We used a combination of bromhexine and spironolactone (both are long-known very cheap drugs. – Ed.). Bromhexine is an expectorant that has been prescribed to patients with pneumonia and cough for many years. At the same time, experimental data showed that this drug can block a specific enzyme and impede the penetration of coronavirus into cells. True, it was on this effect that we counted to a lesser extent in inpatients, since such an effect is important mainly in the early stages of the disease. But the expectorant effect of bromhexine really helps patients with COVID. I heard that our colleagues in Peter launched a study of bromhexine for prophylactic purposes. We will wait for the results.

FIBROSIS OBSTACLE

– The second drug – spironolactone – is traditionally widely used in cardiology for the treatment of heart failure, severe hypertension. It has a small diuretic, magnesium and potassium-preserving effect, continues Yana. Orlova. – It has several mechanisms through which it can be useful in coronavirus infection.

Firstly, a mechanism that prevents the development of fibrosis in general in the body. There are works that, in particular, show that spironolactone reduces fibrosis in the heart. At the same time, it is known that the tendency to fibrosis is not local, but systemic – where there is more inflammation, there will certainly be fibrosis. And we see, of course, fibrotic changes in the “covide” in our patients. Therefore, we prescribed spironolactone as a drug for the prevention of this process.

Secondly, this drug blocks sex hormone receptors, in particular testosterone. Some published studies suggest that “high-testosterone” men suffer from “covid” more often and develop more severe fibrotic changes. Therefore, blocking these receptors for several weeks during COVID treatment may be useful in reducing the severity of complications. We are not talking about a longer intake, since male patients are unlikely to agree with a decrease in testosterone levels in the long term.

And perhaps the most important point. In almost all of our patients, we observed hypokalemia (a decrease in potassium levels. – Ed.). With coronavirus infection, potassium is intensely excreted from the body, and scientific articles even suggest that hypokalemia serves as the trigger for a cytokine storm. So spironolactone has a real chance to reduce the risk of this dangerous complication. But the main thing, in my opinion, is that lowering the level of potassium in the body is extremely harmful to the heart and triggers life-threatening rhythm disturbances, increasing the risk of sudden death. We, like all others, replenished potassium with droppers, but it was more effective to retain it in the body with the help of spironolactone.

WHEN PRESCRIBED PATIENTS

– Yana Arturovna, how many patients did you have on average?

– About 10 – 14 days. But someone and 50 days.

– Have you noticed signs by which it can be assumed that the disease in the person brought is likely to go the hard way?

– Such studies were carried out in the world, our clinical practice confirmed them. Men certainly get worse than women; the elderly are heavier than the young; overweight people are heavier than overweight patients. Men with a classic male type of baldness, a lot of facial hair, we can say brutal men get sick harder.

– Under what conditions did you discharge patients?

– We acted as close as possible to the recommendations Ministry of Health: so that the temperature for three days was not higher than 37.5 degrees; so that C-reactive protein (an indicator of inflammation) is lower than 10 mg / l, and saturation, that is, the level of oxygen in the blood, is higher than 96%.

“HEAD OF EPIDEMIOLOGY DEPARTMENT OF ITSELF WORKED AT SANPROPUSNIK”

– How often do you get sick doctors and nurses?

– In the first month no one got sick at all. We have a very powerful epidemiological service. The head of the sanitary-epidemiological department, a senior researcher, correctly organized the whole process, and for the first two weeks she personally worked in the sanitary inspection room at the exit from the “red zone” and helped doctors and nurses who were exhausted after the shift safely remove protective clothing.

Then both people’s fatigue and viral load accumulated. By the middle of the second month, sick people began to appear. There were no seriously ill patients. We treated part of the staff in our observation, part of it was treated at home. In total, 18 people were infected from the medical staff (less than 10%).

– Doctors take something for prevention? Vitamins C, D, Zinc?

– I saw the recommendations of American nutritionists, they speak out positively about taking zinc, melatonin and vitamin C. There were somewhat conflicting data on vitamin D. But we did not give any such recommendations to our employees. We have all the prevention was associated with minimizing contacts and other measures of epidemiological safety.

salute from the cable-stayed bridge, hovering above the water Assol and space suits

The brightest evening of the country’s graduates ended, which the guys were looking forward to this year. So, as always, the Scarlet Sails Festival 2020 became a beautiful chord of the All-Russian holiday. This year it was both traditional and completely unusual at the same time. We tell you what the Scarlet Sails 2020 surprised.

The main innovation of this year is the change of locationPhoto: Oleg GOLD

Well, firstly, the main innovation is the change of location. For several years in a row, a snow-white brig passes through the water area Not you along the Peter and Paul Fortress, the Hermitage and right under the Palace Bridge. This year, another, no less picturesque place was chosen, with very recognizable sights. Petersburg – stadium “Gazprom-Arena “, Lakhta-center and cable-stayed bridge ZSD.

The second innovation: live Petersburgers and visitors could not see all this beauty. And all because this year there are special requirements: because of the pandemic, access to the park is closed, it was also impossible to see from the water, since part of the Neva and the Gulf of Finland were blocked. GIMS boats and various services went around the water area and made sure that no one violated the ban. Law enforcement officers were also on duty on land: if they met people in a territory where there should not be anyone, they politely asked to leave the place and go home.

And at home, by the way, everyone would have considered it in the best possible way: there was a live broadcast of a concert and a pyrotechnic show on the Internet and on TV. By the way, on the screen you can see what on the shore would definitely not be accessible to the eye. And all because along the Neva and the Gulf of Finland there were several scenes at once and on each of them there was an action.

The main stage was next to the Gazprom Arena stadium, it was also very unusual – as if soaring in the air, and with it the stars acting on it. Leading the holiday were Ivan Urgant and Daria Александрова.

Timur Rodriguez, Vera performed their hits Brezhnev, RASA group, Dima Bilan and Surganova. And there were surprises in the form of a show of pirates and drummers, yes, it is worth noting separately what costumes the artists had – just space ones. Be sure to watch Bilan’s performance if you missed. And also a salute, well, the passage itself of a sailboat!

By the way, the pyrotechnic show lasted almost half an hour, hundreds of volleys were launched into the sky, the first cable-stayed bridge of the WHSD was used. It was both a platform for light, and for launching a salute.


But the highlight, of course, was the passage of a snow-white brig with Scarlet Sails along the Gulf of Finland Photo: Oleg ZOLOTO

And at the end of the extravaganza, the romantic Assol soared above the water to meet her dream. By the way, this year the holiday was dedicated to the author of the fairy tale about Scarlet Sails Alexander Green – marks 140 years since his birthday.

If you missed the broadcast live, there is an opportunity to watch the best moments of the show.

Foreigners canceling a visit to Russia will be reissued for free visa :: Society :: RBC

Foreign citizens who in March this year issued a visa to visit Russia, but canceled the visit due to the coronavirus pandemic, will be able to reissue it for free. This was stated in an interview to Kommersant by the Deputy Foreign Minister, State Secretary Yevgeny Ivanov.

According to him, Russian laws do not allow to extend a visa if it is issued. but not used because the visa is a document with a limited validity period. But ignoring the issue of canceling visits and expiring visas would be wrong.

“The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs considers it possible to offer foreign citizens who have canceled their trips to Russia, despite previously issued single or double entry visas, the validity of which began in mid-March, to apply for new visas of the same multiplicity for free,” Ivanov said.

Russia and Belarus signed an agreement on mutual recognition of visas

The deputy minister noted that it would be possible to draw up documents for entry into Russia free of charge within six months from the date of lifting restrictions on entry in the country. To do this, foreigners will need to provide documents confirming their right to obtain a visa for a new term.
