Celebrity activists Leonardo DiCaprio and Mia Farrow have paid tribute to Nobel Peace Prize winner Wangari Maathai, who died on Sunday.

Maathai won the prestigious honor in 2004 for her campaigns to save Kenyan forests, becoming the first African woman to receive the award.

She had been battling ovarian cancer in recent years and passed away at a hospital in Nairobi, aged 71.

After learning the news, DiCaprio took to his page to tell fans, “A great visionary & environmentalist. She will be missed.”

Farrow adds, “‘Great’ – we use that word so freely, then in the face of true greatness, it feels inadequate. But Wangari Maathai was indeed a great woman.”

America’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a statement, “The world has lost a powerful force for peace, democracy and women’s rights.

“Her death has left a gaping hole among the ranks of women leaders, but she leaves behind a solid foundation for others to build upon. I was inspired by her story and proud to call her my friend.”

Tobias Wolff is an acclaimed American author, best known for his memoirs and short stories. His memoir, This Boy’s Life, was made into a movie in 1993 starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro. Wolff has taught English and Creative Writing at Stanford University since 1997. He spoke at Clara Thompson Hall on Tuesday, Sept. 20th and did a book signing in Olin Library on Wednesday.

Q: What type of author would you classify yourself as?

A: I don’t classify myself. I’ll leave that up to my readers… I’ve written fiction, nonfiction, long form, short stories, novels, memoirs… One form I haven’t done is plays. I think I might try that sometime.

Q: How do you feel about sharing such personal things in your writing?

A: Well, I’m not sharing things that happened to me today or yesterday. I mean, these things are distant, and as we get farther away from events they’re easier to talk about, because we can see them more clearly for one thing, and we can talk about them in a more detached and less emotional way. We can see the patterns of our lives more clearly as they get more distant.

Q: Why do you write the things you write?

A: It’s really hard to explain why I might choose to write a memoir at one point or a short story at another. This is going to sound a little mysterious, but I don’t know why certain things impose themselves on my attention instead of others. I guess I would say that the stories choose me, and not the other way around. I’d assume that it’s the same for a lot of writers.

Q: What is your goal as a writer?

A: When I read something that moves me, that really affects me emotionally and causes me to reflect on something more deeply than before, I feel changed for the better by that, and that would be the kind of effect I would love to have on my readers

The star-studded cast of The Great Gatsby has arrived in Sydney, Australia to start production on Baz Luhrmann’s 3-D vision of the American classic, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The cast of the anticipated adaptation includes Leonardo DiCaprio (as Jay Gatsby), Tobey Maguire (as Nick Carraway), Carey Mulligan (as Daisy Buchanan), and Isla Fisher (as Myrtle Wilson), among other talent. The movie began production on Monday.

The adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Long Island-set novel has a $126 million dollar budget. Filming will take place over 17 weeks, with over 400 cast and crew working on the movie. Another 30 weeks will be spent on post-production.

Luhrmann will “create his own distinctive visual interpretation of the classic story, bringing the period to life in a way that has never been seen before,” said Warner Bros. Pictures of the big budget film. (Warner Bros. is owned by the same parent company as CNN.) Locations in Sydney are being transformed to replicate the Jazz Age New York and Long Island spots in the book.

One way the director is bringing Gatsby to life is by shipping in a fleet of vintage cars from Volo Auto Museum in Illinois. The vehicles reportedly include two 1929 Duesenbergs and a 1929 Packard (to be used by DiCaprio’s Jay)
