Unsurprisingly, Evans and Slate will play romantic interests in the movie, about a single guy (Evans) raising his 7-year-old mathematical-genius niece, who's mentored by her teacher (Slate).While the cynical among us may suggest Evans and Slate's fledgeling relationship is just a long con to support their new project, we have faith that their love is real.

My mom subscribes to Cultural Bucket Brigade Theory, which is to say, every generation hands a pail of culture to the one that follows, and winces as the latter clumsily lets half of it spill out.

So to her, the Times article was nothing less than a vindication.

“Your kids barely speak any Chinese as it is,” she says.

Robert De Niro and Grace Hightower were married in 1997.

The following year, in 1998, the two had a son named Elliot.

The road for this couple wasn’t as smooth as you would think. Since their divorce was never finalized, they renewed their vows in 2004.

Currently, the couple splits their time between upstate New York and Manhattan, and in 2011, the power couple had another child, Helen Grace De Niro, via surrogate.

When I was young, I remember my mom telling me once that she really had only four big hopes for me. I reminded her of this other day: “Remember that list you had for me back when? In baseball, that makes me a superstar.” “Well, in testing, 50% means ,” she retorted. Anyway, the conversation came up because we’d independently emailed each other an article recently published in the New York Times “Style” section, detailing the latest hot trend to hit the Times breakroom: Apparently, more and more Asian Americans are defying convention by…marrying Asian Americans.

“You do these four things and I will be happy,” she said. You see, based on a just-released Pew Research Center report, although Asian Americans are still more likely to outmarry than any other race — a full 28% of Asians marrying in 2010 wed a non-Asian spouse — this percentage actually represents a drop from 31% in 2008. But it’s the reason given for this fall in Asian American outmarriage rates that really caught both of our eyes.

According to Times reporter Rachel Swarns, the reason why younger Asians are choosing to marry other Asians is that they’re experiencing a “resurgence of interest in language and ancestral traditions,” and selecting partners that will help them preserve that precious heritage — particularly spouses who are first-generation immigrants, and thus closer to the original old-world source.
