Coolest Russian newspaper Kopeisk Worker is from the provincial town of Kopeisk, Chelyabinsk region, the Urals. Chelyabinsk region has become famous worldwide due to meteorite (February 2013). Now another sensation. No, it’s not a Photoshop! The honest newspaper editor of “Kopeysk worker” guarantees. For the past 4 years the newspaper has gathered the collection of unique photos of Hollywood celebrities, but made it public only now. The newspaper “Kopeysk worker” – one of the oldest media of the Chelyabinsk region. However, hardly anyone except residents of the Kopeysk would know of its existence, if not a collection of unique photographs in which Hollywood stars are proudly holding it.
During this time the black and white pages of “Kopeysk worker” were held by Bruce Willis, Angelina Jolie, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg, Richard Gere, Johnny Depp, Matt Damon, Justin Timberlake, Harrison Ford, Denzel Washington, Emma Watson, Kate Winslet, Naomi Watts, Kate Hudson, Amanda Seyfried, and Helen Mirren.
The first issues of Kopeysk newspaper photographed Johnny Depp back in 2009. When the newspaper had a picture of Johnny Depp, the readers had a shock.
Johnny got the newspaper from Jack Tewksbury, a Hollywood film producer of “The Great Gatsby”, “Die Hard 5” and, by happy coincidence, the husband of the former resident of Kopeysk – Margarita. It was her own idea to glorify her local newspaper in Hollywood.
For four years, they penetrate into the dressing room of Hollywood celebrities, take photos of stars and offer them to participate in photo session with a fresh newspaper, sent to the United States from the distant Urals.
“We have an agreement with Margaret and her husband, that we publish in our newspaper announcements about the world film premieres and interviews with the actors who participated in the creation of these films. One time we even took $ 200 for each announcement” – explains the executive secretary of Dmitry Sogrin.
“But once they began to send pictures of celebrities with our newspaper in hands, we refused to take money from them.” The stars also pose with the newspaper for free. According to Sogrin: “those who agree on the photo with the newspaper “Kopeysk worker” are people with a sense of humor.”
But that’s not all! The other day, the newspaper faced a completely new challenge for itself. The fact that the earlier photos of stars from the United States were sent with a short announcement. Now, some of the “Star readers” gave a lengthy interview, which are difficult to translate into Russian. So, Sept. 20 edition of “Kopeysk worker” has announced a contest among its readers called “Get closer to the stars!”. The competition was offered to pupils and students – for the best translation.

To take part in the competition, students should be 15 to 20 years old, help from parents and teachers is not forbidden. The contest will run till October 4. The best translation will be published in a newspaper, and the authors will receive unique prizes from Hollywood stars.
