Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Hugh Jackman Says His Kids Don’t Want Him To Be Famous

Hugh Jackman has won fans worldwide for his portrayal of Wolverine in the X-Men series, but when asked about his most important role to date, it’s that of father to son Maximillian, 12, and daughter Eva, 6. Jackman recently talked to Parade.com about his Father’s Day plans, receiving a special Tony award for his contributions to the Broadway community, and his upcoming role in movie adaptation of Les Miserables.

Here are some highlights:

ON WHAT HIS KIDS THINK ABOUT HIS FAME:

“My daughter is 6 and she is really starting to get it now. My son is 12 and he just wants me to be dad. He doesn’t want me to be famous. He doesn’t like when people come up to me on the street. He would much prefer if nobody knew who I was. Although, I’ve seen him in social situations when he didn’t think I was listening, and he once said to a girl, ‘Well, my dad is Wolverine.’ So when it came to try to talk to this girl, apparently it came in handy!”

ON HIS FAVORITE PART ABOUT BEING A DAD:

“The things that I really cherish are the everyday moments, like sitting around cooking pancakes together on Sunday morning, or getting home after a tough day and my kids come up and give me a hug and remind me what’s really important. On Friday nights, we will all sit down and watch a movie together and cuddle up. It’s more everyday stuff that really is the goal.”

ON THE BEST FATHER’S DAY GIFT HE HAS EVER RECEIVED:

“The best is a handwritten card. I don’t know where some of my awards are, but I can tell you exactly where those cards are. I treasure them most. I am pretty spoiled on Father’s Day. I get a lot of home cooking, which is great. My wife is an amazing cook. And my son is actually an amazing cook, too. So I always get a fair bit of cooking on Father’s Day.”

ON HIS ROLE IN LES MISERABLES:

“It’s great. We have one more week of filming and I pinch myself every day. It’s the first time a movie-musical has been done with live singing. We are singing every single take of the song. As a performer, it’s fantastic. It’s obviously challenging, especially when the call is at 8:30 in the morning, but it is so immediate. It is really about the acting. Les Miserables is one of the greatest stories ever told, and it really is an uplifting story about the human spirit. It is a rare feeling to be in something that you know you will look back on as one the highlights of your life.”

Chace Crawford Wants “Games of Thrones” to Want Him!

Hottie Gossip Girl actor Chace Crawford is going to have to do some major reinventing after his stint on the hit CW show comes to an end, but he has something already lined up. In a recent interview with Parade.com, Crawford talks about being an uncle, ending Gossip Girl, finding love and his new role he just landed.

Highlights below.

ON HIS DREAM GOSSIP GIRL ENDING:

“If I got to write the show, it would be a very different thing. I would make Chuck Gossip Girl and I would turn my character into Patrick Bateman from American Psycho.That would be a wierd twist of events.”

ON ENDING THE SHOW:

“I tend to throw something for the crew at the end of every season. What will we do? For me, it’s going to probably be more bittersweet and tough to leave New York City. And it’s definitely an end of an era. It was college for everyone really. We’ll do something for sure.”

ON HIS BABY HANDLING SKILLS:

“They are top notch [laughs]. I haven’t changed a diaper yet and that’s the part of being the cool uncle. I didn’t realize that babies can’t hold their heads up right away so that was a lesson of a sister yelling. It’s always the handoff that’s a little awkward. He sleeps all day and just sits there and you watch him. It’s a beautiful thing. He’s a big baby. He’s a strong baby. He came out with a football in his hand. It was a very weird thing. And a Giants hat. I was like, ‘What is that? Get that off!’ My sister was very athletic as well so I’m sure he’ll be fine.”

ON SETTLING DOWN:

“Being from Texas, there is a little more pressure to get it done but I’m not really on that spectrum. I’m on a different train. I’ve learned I need a couple of decades of maturity. Maybe less than a couple of decades. It’s about finding the right person. I’m not the kind of guy that needs to have a girlfriend or needs to have attention from a girlfriend. If it happens, it happens. I’m always open to that. Not marriage yet, but I’ll figure it out.”

ON HIS FUTURE:

“Unless Games of Thrones comes knocking at my door, I’m going to try to make a run at film for awhile. Their are pros and cons to both. With TV, you’re locked in. It’s great because you have conistency though while film is like camp.”

You hear that Games of Thrones producers? Chace wants YOU to want HIM! However, I’m not sure GOT could handle those brows.

Kevin Costner Knew He Had to say something About Whitney’s Death!

This is going to be one of my favorite Parade magazine issues ever. Kevin Costner opens up to the magazine about his late friend and costar in The Bodyguard Whitney Houston.

He was quoted as saying, “When [Whitney died], immediately people were on the airwaves talking about it. It’s unusual to watch the world talking about someone that you have a fairly unique relationship with. t’s almost surreal. This little drumbeat began: ‘“You need to say something.”’

Thus came his eulogy at Whitney’s funeral.

Check out highlights from the interview below:

ON WHITNEY HOUSTON’S FUNERAL:

“My wife and I flew into New York on a Friday night, and the next day we went to the funeral. I was writing [my eulogy] on the plane, in the limo, in bed. It was important. When I first walked into that church, it was electric, man. … I started [speaking] with the idea that sometimes what you think life will be it won’t be at all, and about what was real between Whitney and me, what we talked about—being in church when we were little, both getting in trouble, about our not wanting to be preachers. … I wanted to impart a bit of the Whitney that I knew, and maybe people could think about her in a different way.”

ON SENSING HOUSTON’S VULNERABILITY:

“Oh, yes. I tried to identify it in my eulogy. … I think about Whitney a little bit the way I think about the Kennedys. I know there’s trouble, but I choose to think about a lot of other stuff. The trouble is as real as the achievement, but it does not tarnish it.”

ON WHETHER HE STILL PRAYS:

“Yes, because I realize I have been very lucky. I feel that there has been a hand over my life. I haven’t lived a perfect life. I have regrets. But that’s from a lifetime of taking chances, making decisions, and trying not to be frozen. The only thing that I can do with my regrets is understand them. When I see my children, and when I see the people who value me, I know how lucky I am. … And so I give thanks for the life I’ve lived. I want to live forever, and I know I won’t. I’m not afraid of dying. I’m only afraid of one thing: not being able to raise my kids. When I pray, that’s what I pray for—that I be the one who raises Grace, Hayes, and Cayden.

ON HOLDING OFF FILMING THE BODYGUARD FOR A YEAR TO WAIT FOR HOUSTON:

“You don’t do that for everybody. And it was a pretty seminal moment for Whitney. I was told that the movie made a big impression on the black community because I took Whitney in my arms and kissed her, not as a black woman but as a beautiful woman. That’s how I saw her.”

Vanessa Lachey Would Forgive Nick if He Cheated On Her

Vanessa Lachey is expecting her first child with husband Nick Lachey later this year and she is ready to talk about it. Read on to find out all about how she and Nick have been nesting, how they keep the romance alive and more!

Highlights via Parade.com:

ON NESTING:

“I have [been nesting] in my mind but I’ve been a little consumed with work. But the interesting thing I’ve noticed is my husband is nesting. I always thought it was the woman but he’s doing his little nesting part too. He saw this old table we have and he sanded it, then he stained it, put glass on it. He made us a desk! It was pretty incredible. Now I feel guilty so I think because of that I tried to put the stroller together the other day. But we have a good amount of time to prepare.”

ON NICK’S BABY CROONING:

“Some of the books are inconsistent on when the baby can hear me and outside voices. I told him the other day that the baby could hear him now and he corrected me! He was like, ‘no, actually according to my book…” When that time does come, I know he’s going to sing to the baby every single day. It’s sweet to see that smile on his face.”

ON KEEPING THE ROMANCE ALIVE:

“This whole process is going on in our first year of marriage, which everyone says is the hardest. But for us, we dated each other for five years before we got married so we were comfortable with all of the little things that would normally get into people’s way. I think the important thing is patience, communication, understanding, and knowing when you are wrong. We all react and say things but it’s all about coming back and saying you’re sorry. It’s about knowing this is the person you will be married to for the rest of your life. There is nothing unforgivable, he is my partner, you know?”

Um, Jenny McCarthy Wants To Make A Baby With Brian Urlacher?

Wait. Let me re-read this article.

Oops. Um, yeah. Parade.com has a quote in which Jenny says she’s taking “baby steps” with her new beau Brian Urlacher. She’s NOT looking to have unprotected sexy time that would potentially result in a baby thing. See, for pete’s sake. Now that is how rumors start, people.

Jenny MCarthy talks to Parade.com about her upcoming hosting gig on NBC’s dating competition “Love in the Wild”, her thoughts on marriage AND yes, she also talks about her new honey Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher! Check out the whole “baby steps” thing below.

Check out the highlights from the interview below:

ON WHETHER SHE’S PREPARED TO BE CHICAGO’S NEW FIRST COUPLE WITH BEARS STAR URLACHER:

“That’s funny! I haven’t made too many comments other than the fact that I’m taking baby steps. We’ll see. But I’m giddy right now.”

ON WHAT SWEEPS HER OFF HER FEET:

“Someone who is generally a nice guy through and through. You can really tell from talking to the person’s friends. I always have two secrets I use: one is watching them with the service industry people and the other is going on an overnight, weekend trip. It’s kind of like our adventures on our show. You break the mold of your fake self and over seventy-two hours you have to act natural somewhere. Those are my two litmus test things. Being from Chicago and trying to date in L.A., it was hard. I’m just happy to see where I’ll go from here.”

ON THE CRAZIEST THING SHE’S DONE FOR LOVE:

“Craziest thing I’ve done for love is getting married. I think it’s crazy. I think it’s crazy, crazy, crazy. I’m never going to say I wouldn’t do it again but I have to make sure it’s love and not settling for the ‘I have to do this by a certain age,’ which is kind of what I did.”

ON WHETHER SHE WOULD COLLABORATE WITH COUSIN MELISSA MCCARTHY IN THE FUTURE:

“We did something a long time ago. When she first came out here, I put her on my sketch show as a PA [production assistant] to learn how to do the business because she wasn’t aware of Hollywood. The last couple of episodes I put her on a sketch and I went, ‘Oh my god! This girl is GOOD!’ Then she really did a good job of building her brand up and I knew it was only a matter of time before she broke. Now she’s the most sought-after person right now. I couldn’t be more proud.”

Hilary Duff Ready For Baby Number Two?

Hilary Duff may have just popped out baby Luca Cruz, but she’s already talking about that beautiful bundle that has changed her life.

In an interview with Parade.com, Duff talks about the critics trashing her post-baby body (hey, we aren’t all Gisele Bundchen’s!), how parenthood has helped her relationship with husband Mike Comrie, and how they came up with the name Luca Cruz.

Check out the highlights below.

ON PRESSURE TO GET BACK INTO SHAPE:

“I don’t have a project waiting on me that I have to bust my butt to get into shape for so it’s more about how I feel. I like working out since it makes me feel more clear-headed and positive. I did pilates and yoga during my pregnancy but I really missed getting my butt kicked. But then I read comments on my Twitter page about how I’m waddling into pilates and I go, ‘wow, that’s a really mean thing to say. I just had a baby three weeks ago!’ There is a little bit of pressure but most of it comes from me.”

ON HOW LUCA GOT HIS NAME:

“We don’t have any rhyme or reason about why we chose that name. We had the names Cruz and Luca on our list with some others and decided at the very last minute what it was going to be. There is no good story behind it, which is kind of sad. We just liked the way it sounded together. We were thinking of Cruz as a first name and were just mixing and matching it with things on our list and came up with it. We liked the name Luke too but we wanted to do something different — but not crazy. Afterwards we found out his name means ‘bringer of light.’ I love that.”

ON BABY NUMBER TWO:

“To be totally honest, I had a really easy pregnancy and I did enjoy a lot of it. But a part of me isn’t like those women who love being pregnant. I love my baby and I miss that feeling of being attached to him when he’s kicking, but I was so ready to not be pregnant. Right now, I’m focused on being the best mom I can be and when I start working again, I’ll see how I juggle everything. But then again, my sister [Haylie Duff] and I are very close so I want Luca to have someone close [to his age] — but not too close!

Cindy Crawford says her daughter Kaia has her old legs!


Cindy Crawford chats with Parade magazine.

I don’t care what anyone says, Cindy Crawford is still effing hot. In a recent interview with Parade.com, Cindy talks about what it is like to balance her busy career and being a mother to two kiddos (son Presley 12, and daughter Kaia, 10). Check out the highlights below.

ON HER 10-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER KAIA’S RECENT PHOTO SHOOT:

“I loved it. I thought she looked great. I was proud of her. I was there when she shot it, so I know what the experience was like for her. She liked it, but she also saw that it’s hard work. When we left the shoot, it wasn’t like, ‘Oh, I can’t wait to do that again,’ it was like, ‘That was kinda hard!’ The first 10 snaps are really fun and then it’s work. There’s a reason they call it a job. I thought it was a really good introduction for her to understand a little bit what I do. It was a really great experience for her. ”

ON WHETHER SHE SEES A LOT OF HERSELF IN HER DAUGHTER:

“Other people see more of me in her than I do, but I just see her. I always tease her that she stole everything from me. I’m like, ‘You have my old legs and I want them back!’”

ON WHETHER SHE STILL GETS A RUSH IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA:

“I do! The thing that I love most about modeling is really the rapport with the photographer and the team and creating exciting images. It’s about working as a team. It’s also about communication. A picture tells a story and I think that’s what I really respond to. Maybe the story I’m telling now at 46 is different than it was at 25, but it’s still a form of communication.”

Dumping Kermit may now help Jason Segel get a girlfriend!

Jason Segel is saying goodbye to Kermit and he’s not even sad. Heck, Kermit is overrated anyways. In an interview with Parade magazine, Segel says that he is totally okay with letting go of The Muppets and he’s still riding solo (meaning he doesn’t have a big fat problem with being single either).

Check out the highlights from the interview below.

ON WHY HE ISN’T WRITING THE NEXT MUPPETS FILM:

“My goal wasn’t to be the new head of the Muppets but to be a footnote in the legacy. I did what I set out to do, and now I’d like to pursue human related projects. I’m a very good writer — all modesty aside — but it’s not my main profession. I am happy to leave it in the hands of people who are great and competent.”

ON WHETHER HE THINKS THERE IS SUCH A THING AS “THE ONE”:

“No, I don’t. I think relationships are an effort and it’s about timing, an actual decision, and two people deciding they will be the best person for one another. And what happens if you miss the one or they die? Now you are doomed to a life of loneliness? We know that’s not true. I think you want your partner to be your best friend. Even attraction will change. But what everyone’s looking for is a partner in crime.”

ON HOW COME HE IS SINGLE:

“I don’t want to have a girlfriend for the sake of having a girlfriend. I have no desire to pick a random girl. I want the right girl. There are plenty of opportunities, but I would rather have the right one.”

Hunger Games Star Reveals Crush on Co-Star

Elizabeth Banks is one of the stars of The Hunger Games, playing the role of Effie Trinket. In an interview with Parade.com, Banks talks about why she loves the Hunger Games book and who she has a crush on. Yeah, he is her co-star! OOOOOOO!

Check out the highlights below.

ON WHETHER SHE READ THE HUNGER GAMES BOOK BEFORE GETTING THE SCRIPT:

“Yes. I was a very early adopter. It was so epic in scope, and had such a fantastic heroine at the heart of it, that it felt to me, especially as a woman, that I had found my Lord of the Rings.”

ON HER BIGGEST CHALLENGE PLAYING EFFIE:

“It was very important that Effie be very three-dimensional. She can be dismissed as a buffoon or a clown. She absolutely is those things, but I wanted to make sure that you understand that she is the representative of the Capital and all that the Capital stands for. And the Capital is a dark place. She drank the Kool-Aid.”

ON EFFIE’S OVER-THE-TOP LOOK:

“The director, Gary Ross, said, ‘I have this image that she’s Joel Grey in Cabaret.’ So that’s where we got the super-white skin. She is someone striving for perfection and misfiring. I also based her partly on Rosalind Russell’s version of Auntie Mame. Effie is like your crazy aunt that sits at the dining room table and says all the wrong things at dinner.”

ON WORKING WITH WOODY HARRELSON:

“It was a dream. I like to say that Elizabeth Banks has a crush on Woody Harrelson and Effie has a crush on Haymitch, and Haymitch can’t stand Effie. I don’t know where Woody stands on Elizabeth.”

I wonder if any other romances will evolve from this trilogy.

Josh Hutcherson has great chemistry with Jennifer Lawrence

Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson recently chatted it up with Parade magazine about how he landed the role of Peeta, working with Jennifer Lawrence, and being on the brink of superstardom. Check out the highlights below.

ON HOW HE GOT THE PART:

“I auditioned for the first time with director Gary Ross, and Suzanne Collins. I just read a few scenes. A couple of weeks later, they called me back in; I had a chemistry read with Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss), which was great. And then there was a painful two weeks of waiting to hear if I got the part or not. When I finally got the call, I was literally rendered speechless.”

ON THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE PLAYING PEETA:

“Gary Ross and I wanted to make sure that we did not let Peeta become too sappy, just because he’s admitting his love to Katniss. He takes a lot of strength from Katniss. And Katniss learns how to open up emotionally from Peeta.”

ON HOW HE PREPARED FOR THE LEVEL OF STARDOM THAT HARRY POTTER AND TWILIGHT BROUGHT ITS STARS:

“It’s a mixed feeling. It’s something that every actor sort of dreams about, because, if you get to that point, that means you’re successful and you get to keep on doing what you do. But, at the same time, you do lose anonymity, and you start to kind of become more of this idea to people instead of a real person, which is challenging. But I’m excited about it. It’s a new adventure and I’m excited to see where it takes me.”

Jennifer Lawrence is scared of fame

Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence is working on her media rounds and we just got a hold of her Parade magazine interview. In this weekend’s issue, Lawrence chats about prepping for the part of Katniss, how the Kardashians are like The Hunger Games and more.

Check out the highlights below:

ON WHY SHE THINKS SO MANY PEOPLE RELATE TO THE BOOKS:

“I was watching the Kardashian girl getting divorced, and that’s a tragedy for anyone. But they’re using it for entertainment, and we’re watching it. The books hold up a terrible kind of mirror: This is what our society could be like if we became desensitized to trauma and to each other’s pain.”

ON HOW SHE FEELS ABOUT BEING ON THE BRINK OF WHAT COULD BE CHANGE-YOUR-LIFE STARDOM:

“I’ve never played a part this famous. It’s insane to get recognized from a movie that hasn’t been released yet. That’s just bizarre. And scary.”

ON HOW SHE PREPPED FOR THE PART:

“There was running training, stunt training, combat training, archery. It was all really fun but filming in North Carolina in 100-degree heat and 100-percent humidity in cargo pants and leather boots and a jacket was tricky. The whole crew bonded over the heat and the bugs. And I conquered my fear of spiders.”

ON THE TOUGHEST DAY OF FILMING:

“I had to do a scene running across a field, grabbing a backpack. There was no shade. It was just in this field of really tall grass and I had to sprint, and sprint, and sprint as fast as I could, five or six times. And then I had to get in this huge fight. I felt like I was in a car accident the next day.”

Kellie Pickler probably had sex in Iraq


Kellie Pickler’s Parade magazine interview: 100 Proof and USO entertainer

Parade.com has a new interview with country superstar Kellie Pickler where the 25-year-old singer chats about her new album, 100 Proof, her experiences as a USO entertainer, her first year of marriage, and more. And while I am not much of a Kellie Pickler fan, I do give her props for being able to succeed longer than a few years after an appearance on American Idol.

Check out some highlights below:

ON HER NEW ALBUM, 100 PROOF:

“I’m so excited for everyone to hear it. I have never been so infatuated with making a record like I have been with this one. It’s pretty country. I love Tammy Wynette and Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton, they are big reasons why I fell in love with country music, so I kind of pay tribute to them a little.”

ON PERFORMING FOR THE TROOPS OVERSEAS:

“Out of everything that I’ve ever been able to be a part of, the USO is the one that I’m most proud of and honored to be able to work with. What they’re doing for our military is so great. I’ve loved taking a little piece of home to our troops in Iraq or Afghanistan.”

ON THE RUMOR THAT HER AND HER HUSBAND KYLE JACOBS SPENT THEIR HONEYMOON IN IRAQ:

“We eloped on New Year’s Day of last year and we got to spend a couple nights in the Caribbean and then we hopped on a plane to Iraq. That was part of our honeymoon. It was so romantic! No, it was just that I had already committed to going over there and I wasn’t going to cancel because that wouldn’t have been right. But Kyle loved it. It was such a great experience for him to be a part of. It’s not every day that you get to be a part of something so big and so special.”

Enrique Iglesias and Anna Kournikova married?

Even though last year he introduced Anna Kournikova as his wife, Enrique Iglesias clears up those rumors in the upcoming issue of Parade magazine. So what is the deal? Is he married or not? And will he be getting hitched anytime soon?

Highlights from the interview below.

ON INTRODUCING ANNA KOURNIKOVA AS HIS WIFE AT A CONCERT IN RUSSIA LAST YEAR:

It was just meant to be sweet in the moment. I honestly didn’t mean to confuse people. I thought it’d be easier for the audience to understand than if I said “my girl.”

ON WHY HE WON’T BE MARRYING ANYTIME SOON:

I’ve never really thought marriage would make a difference. Maybe it’s because I come from divorced parents, but I don’t think you love someone more because of a piece of paper. And nowadays, it’s not taboo to have kids and not be married. What makes a difference is that you’re a good parent, period.

ON WHAT HE LEARNED ABOUT FAME FROM OBSERVING HIS FATHER JULIO’S CAREER:

I remember there were these two guys who worked with him who would never even watch his show, but afterward they were at his dressing room saying, “Man, that’s the best show I’ve ever seen you do.” In showbiz, it’s easy to be surrounded by people who tell you everything is great, and as a little kid, I developed a sixth sense about those people. It gave me a tremendous psychological advantage.

In other words ladies, there is still a chance. A very slim one. But there IS one!

Joey Fatone’s Marriage Advice For Justin Timberlake

Former *NSYNC star Joey Fatone talks to PARADE about his surprising new gig and his advice to his newly-engaged former bandmate Justin Timberlake. We’ve got some of the highlights from the interview below!

ON WHETHER THE NSYNC BAND MATES ARE STILL CLOSE:

“We saw each other for Chris’ [Kirkpatrick] 40th. I’m 35. We’re getting old! I had dinner with Chris recently and I talked to Justin, Lance [Bass], and JC [Chasez] during my birthday. We try to hook up together once in awhile.”

ON WHAT THEY GIVE EACH OTHER AS WEDDING PRESENTS:

“A smack in the head!”

ON WHAT RELATIONSHIP ADVICE HE HAS FOR JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE:

“Don’t listen to all the BS. Especially in his situation, he and his fiancé [Jessica Biel] — I haven’t really talked to him about everything yet — but they’re both in the limelight as well. It’s tough for those celebrity couples. It’s really hard. My wife wasn’t in the limelight, which made it easier. The key is to keep it happy, light, and fun. There can be a lot of drama, like when you have kids. And both of them have jobs where they are taken to different places. It’s the communication that really needs to drive that relationship.”

Fatone and his wife have been together for almost two decades.

Kate Beckinsale is obsessed with The Hunger Games

with Parade.com about her Hunger Games obsession, working with her husband on the set of Total Recall, relating to her daughter’s difficult teen years, and more.

Check out the highlights below.

ON LIFE WITH A TEENAGE DAUGHTER:

“I’m literally a couple months into that. It has been largely about Bar Mitzvahs lately! I had a child young enough that it doesn’t feel too far away from my own experience. I feel like I flunked at adolescence really badly. I found it really difficult. I’m very supportive of how tricky seventh and eighth grade are for girls. I think it’s a very difficult time, but she’s doing great.”

ON HER ON-SET RELATIONSHIP WITH HUSBAND LEN WISEMAN:

“The fist time we met each other was when we were filming Underworld, and then we worked together again after we’d been married a short while, and now we’ve been married seven years, so I’ve had quite a few different experiences along the way. It’s different each time. We love it. I think one of the things we like least about our jobs is that it can force separation from each other. One of the things that’s so nice about working together is that not only do we enjoy each other professionally, but we actually get to sleep in the same bed at night and hang out with our kid on the weekends, so it’s great. As far as any secrets I have to working together? I guess always argue over text so other people aren’t embarrassed!”

ON BEING A FAN OF THE HUNGER GAMES:

“Oh yea! Actually, my daughter’s school encouraged all the parents and teachers and students to read The Hunger Games, so it promoted a massive discussion of it. For some reason, my daughter was a little bit resistant to it at first, but then we just were all completely overwhelmed by it. It was actually this summer that we were all reading it and loving it. We can’t wait for the movie. It looks fantastic.”
