ANGELINA JOLIE, on possibly retiring from acting after playing Cleopatra in Ang Lee’s forthcoming biopic
Salvador Dalí made Surrealism famous, but there’s more to him than wilting clocks (as in The Persistence of Memory) and floating orbs (as in Máxima Velocidad de la Madonna de Rafael, above). To prove it, the Bank of Brazil Cultural Center is hosting the country’s largest-ever Dalí exhibition, in Rio de Janeiro through Sept. 22.
On June 6, it’s back to Litchfield prison for Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black crew–including Schilling, 29, who stars as unlikely convict Piper Chapman. Here, the Golden Globe–nominated actress talks to TIME.
Piper ended last season with a big fight. Did that involve any physical training?
[Laughs.] No. When I was in school, I did a bunch of stage combat.
I really thought you were about to say you got in a lot of fights.
Big exclusive: I was a tough girl! But no. I did stage combat. It’s not totally out of left field for me to do a fight on camera.
How has the show affected your thoughts on the color orange?
Jeez. It is not easy to wear. I feel like it’s a little too self-referential for me to put that color on, pretty much ever.
Have you cleansed your closet?
I gotta say, orange was not a big part of my wardrobe.
What about the fruit?
The fruit? What do you mean?
Oh! I love orange as a fruit.
One of the great things about a show set in prison is the never-ending stream of new, quirky characters. Who would be your dream actress to play a Litchfield inmate?
So many! The other day I thought of Diane Keaton. I don’t know if she’d ever join us in jail.
Before you go, can we talk about that infamous chicken that showed up in one episode last season? Will the chicken return?
I don’t know. We could put that request in.
We can officially make that request.

GETTING THE BOOT
Here’s a new use for any Pringles cans you might have lying around: turn them into a giant soccer cleat. Just be forewarned that you won’t be the first. Sculptors spent nearly 300 hours crafting the 17-foot, 1,500-can work above. It now sits at Wembley Stadium in London, where fans are encouraged to rub the sides to bring good luck to England’s World Cup team, which plays its first game against Italy on June 14.
Wackiest Eating Records
If you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen–or at least out of Molly Schuyler’s way. The 125-lb. mother of four wolfed down two 72-oz. steaks, a baked potato, a buttered roll, a shrimp cocktail and a salad in under 15 minutes, setting a record at a Texas eatery. But the “meals” gobbled in competitions are rarely as balanced as hers. Here are five other mouthfuls that redefine the term glutton for punishment, all certified by the International Federation of Competitive Eating.
