Sandra Bullock Called A Female Astronaut On The International Space Station To Ask For Advice

“We talked on the phone for that one long time, which was certainly a nice morale thing for me. I’m up there on the station with five guys and to get to talk to somebody who, even instantly on the phone, is so personable, it was like talking to a girlfriend.”

“The Little Mermaid” Is Returning To Theaters — In The Most Annoying Way Possible

When I heard “The Little Mermaid” was coming back to theaters, I immediately started sobbing with joy and planning the outfit I would wear to go see it (something subtle like a flared skirt with green sequins and a seashell bra). There was just no way I would ever miss the opportunity to see one…

Watch: Emma Roberts, James Franco & More In “Palo Alto”

We heard way back in December that Emma Roberts had a thing for one James Franco, which we suspect may have made things a touch awkward on the set of “Palo Alto”.

6 Movie Special Effects That Have Gotten Worse Over Time
