Phil Collins - Реферат

project was a movie titled The Three Bears. Originally meant to star him alongside Danny DeVito and Bob Hoskins, he often mentioned the film but an appropriate script never materialized. [31]
Collins performed the soundtrack to the animated film Tarzan (1999) for The Walt Disney Company. He won an Oscar for "You'll Be in My Heart", which he performed at that year's telecast as well as during a Disney-themed Super Bowl halftime show. The song, which he also recorded in Spanish among other languages, became his only appearance on Billboard's Hot Latin Tracks [24]. Disney hired him in 2003 for the soundtrack to another animated feature film, Brother Bear, and had some airplay with the song "Look Through My Eyes".
On television, he twice hosted the Billboard Music Awards. He also appeared in an episode of the series Miami Vice, entitled "Phil the Shill", in which he plays a cheating con-man. He also guest starred in several sketches with The Two Ronnies. Most recently, he had a cameo appearance on the television series Whoopi.
In 2001 Collins was caught out by the satirist Chris Morris and appeared in the Brass Eye 'Paedophile Special' endorsing a spoof charity called 'Nonce Sense'('nonce' is a British acronym which stands for 'Not Of Normal Criminal Element'). A significant moment from this program is where Collins, dressed in a matching baseball cap and t-shirt emblazoned with the name of this fictitious charity, stares into the camera and declares: "...I'm talking Nonce-sense."
In 2006 Disney's Tarzan was adapted for Broadway. Collins contributed 11 new songs and instrumental pieces, and was deeply involved in the production. Unlike the movie, where Collins sang all the material, the characters sang on stage.
Personal life
Collins was married to Andrea Bertorelli of Canada, whom he met at a drama class in London [18], in 1975. They had a son, Simon, and Collins adopted Bertorelli's daughter Joely Collins, now a Canadian actress. They divorced in 1980, and Collins acknowledges the acrimony underlay his hit "In the Air Tonight".
He and his second wife, Jill Tavelman, were married from 1984 to 1996. They had one daughter, Lily. Collins openly admits that some of their divorce-related correspondence was by fax (one, about access to their daughter was reproduced in The Sun), but denies that this took her by surprise.[19]
He married his third wife, Orianne, in 1999. The couple had two sons, Nicholas and Matthew. They lived in Switzerland, overlooking Lake Geneva, before announcing their separation on March 16, 2006. Collins has said he will continue to reside in Switzerland to be near the children.
He is a supporter of animal rights and PETA. He recently donated autographed drumsticks in support of PETA's campaign against Kentucky Fried Chicken [20]
