Entertainment Editor Leanne Aciz Stanton boasts an encyclopedic knowledge when it comes to all things pop culture, but especially music. As a full-time member of the Us Weekly team, Leanne has broken exclusives and interviewed household names including Helen Mirren, Priyanka Chopra, Regina Hall, Dylan McDermott and Melanie Lynskey, just to name a few. Career highlights include having the kind of heartwarming, thought-provoking conversation with John Stamos most Full House loyalists could only dream about and (gently) informing Stevie Nicks that Harry Styles was, in fact, not in NSYNC. Leanne was previously the Deputy Editor and Senior Editor at OK! magazine’s digital site, and the Entertainment Editor at both print editions of OK! and Star. She graduated from New Jersey City University in 2009 with a degree in English.
