Princess Diana Was Nervous About Kissing Kevin Costner in ‘The Bodyguard’ Sequel

Many people remember Princess Diana as being very poised and graceful. She also seemed to exude confidence whenever she walked into a room. One of the things that most of her fans loved about her was the way that she was willing to stand up for what she believed in, even if it meant that she had to go head to head with members of the royal family

However, what many people don’t know about her is that before she tragically lost her life, she was considering accepting a leading role in what could have been one of the most iconic movies of the ’90s: The Bodyguard 2. 

So, was the Princess of Wales actually going to star in a movie alongside the legendary actor, Kevin Costner? And if so, was she nervous about having to kiss him on screen? Here is what we know about Princess Diana’s would-be acting career.

Was Princess Diana actually going to star in ‘The Bodyguard 2’?

Costner recently sat down in an interview with People and admitted that back in 1997, he was excited about making the sequel to his box office hit movie, The Bodyguard. 

In the first movie, he played the bodyguard of the award-winning singer, Whitney Houston. In the movie, the two had a professional relationship that had quickly turned romantic. The sequel was set to be based on pretty much the same premises, except it was now going to star Princess Diana as the one who needed protecting.

Costner told the interviewer that he had talked to Princess Diana on the phone and told her: “I am going to write this part with you in mind. Do you think that this is something that you would like to do?”

Costner then said that after he had asked the question, Princess Diana quickly responded by telling him that she would like to do the part.

Sarah Ferguson helped Princess Diana get the part

Long before Princess Diana and Sarah Ferguson were sisters-in-law, they were friends. Their friendship had only grown once they both married their respective princes. And after Diana and Prince Charles were officially divorced, Fergie was still committed to supporting her long-time friend.

That is a fact that Costner had also confirmed in his interview. Kevin had said that Sarah was actually the one who had set up the meeting between Kevin and Diana. Costner remembers Fergie being incredibly supportive of her best friend and seemed to be genuinely happy that Princess Diana was going to star in a full-length movie.

Was Princess Diana nervous about having to kiss Costner?

While Princess Diana and Costner were discussing her role in the upcoming sequel, Diana had asked Kevin of there were going to be any kissing scenes.

According to Costner when she asked the question, she had seemed nervous and he had thought that it was because she was worried about what the royal family would think.

Costner had said, “She was a little nervous because I think her life was very governed, and I said ‘Yeah, there’s going to be a little bit of that, but we can make that okay too.’”

In the end, Diana was never able to go through with the movie. According to The Guardian, Kevin received the script exactly one day before Princess Diana had tragically lost her life in a car accident while vacationing in France. The production team did not want to replace Diana, and instead, they had decided to cancel the project and not move forward with their plans to make The Bodyguard 2.

Why ‘Mr. Mercedes’ Adapted Stephen King’s Books Out Of Order

Television has been good to Stephen King. He’s a verbose writer, and some of his tomes don’t fit into a two-hour movie. TV miniseries were first to adapt It, The Stand, The Tommyknockers, Salem’s Lot and even a redux of The Shining. Mr. Mercedes gave King’s book 10 hour-long episodes to tell the whole story. It’s a good thing Mr. Mercedes was a trilogy because now the show is on its third season.

Here’s the twist though. Season 3 is actually an adaptation of book 2, Finders Keepers. The show jumped right to End of Watch for season 2. It made sense as End of Watch more directly continues the story of killer Brady Hartsfield (Harry Treadaway), but have no fear Finders Keepers fans. They’ve come back to the middle book.

Mr. Mercedes director Jack Bender and new cast member Gabriel Ebert were on a panel for the Television Critics Association today to talk about why they adapted the books out of order. Mr. Mercedes returns September 10 at 10 p.m. on Audience Network, and we’ll have more interviews with them in September. 

Season 2 was too soon to introduce a new killer

The book Mr. Mercedes and season 1 of the show are about the cat and mouse game between retired detective Bill Hodges (Brendan Gleeson) and killer Brady. Finders Keepers introduces a new killer and Hodges doesn’t even appear in the book for a while, so the makers of Mr. Mercedes decided they had to do another season with Bill and Brady.

“Because the focus of the show was this love/hate affair between Brady Hartsfield and Bill Hodges, and because of the condition we left our villain, almost comatose after his head was bashed in, we had to figure out a way to have him in the show in an active way,” Bender said. “The writers, myself, all of us came up with a version that wasn’t going to be Finders Keepers and we knew we were going to have to put that off and found a way to make that the focus of season 3.”

The villain of Finders Keepers is Morris Bellamy, played by Gabriel Ebert. Morris robs author John Rothstein (Bruce Dern) of his unpublished manuscripts, killing Rothstein in the process. It turns out Bill was a big fan of Rothstein’s books so the case is on his radar.

Morris takes after Brady in at least one way

One of Brady’s many dysfunctions was an incestuous relationship he had with his mother (Kelly Lynch), which played out as described in King’s book. King did not give Morris such a character trait. The show added an element for Morris. Morris is involved with Alma Lane (Kate Mulgrew), a woman who refers to herself as his mother though they are not biologically related.

“In Brady’s case it’s his actual mother and they have an incredibly sexually tense relationship, but it never comes to consummation,” Ebert said. “In my character’s journey, it’s more of a mother figure. I thought that I was the sort of mastermind villain of season 3. I really came to learn that actually, I was more of a pawn in Kate Mulgrew’s [character’s] mastermind villain story.” 

It’s time to deal with the aftermath of the Mercedes attack

Mr. Mercedes begins when Brady drives a Mercedes into a queue of people waiting in line at a job fair. Season 1 is mostly focused on preventing Brady from attacking again, and season two deals with Brady finding new ways to hurt people even after he’s caught. 

Bender felt it was important to explore what happens to a town after they’ve survived a Brady Hartsfield. Finders Keepers gave him that story.

“One thing that I always wanted to deal with, and we weren’t able to until this season, was the repercussions of evil,” Bender said. “When you think about these towns where these horrible massacres happen, and everybody in that town says, ‘I can’t believe it happened here, I can’t believe it happened to us,’  that’s very much a part of our show.”

People and communities can recover, but violent attacks leave scars. 

“We always wanted to deal with [the fact that] it doesn’t just stop,” Bender continued. “The ripples in the evil pond don’t just stop with the immediate characters and the family. It affects that town. It stains that town, and I think as a nation right now we’re suffering that a little bit, but we won’t get into all that. I do think that it’s great that we can deal with that this season.”

Here’s Everything the ‘Wynonna Earp’ Cast Revealed About Season 4 At Comic-Con

It’s finally official: Wynonna Earp will be returning in Summer 2020 with a brand-new, 12-episode season. Though the future of Season 4 was unsure for a while, the cast and crew came to San Diego Comic-Con shortly after this announcement to celebrate with fans. Here’s what we know about what’s to come for the residents of Purgatory.

Valdez is coming

In the Season 3 finale, there’s a name carved into a wall on Wynonna’s house: Valdez. Beau Smith, the creator of the comic series on which Wynonna Earp is based, was in attendance and spoke about who that is. “She’s a character I created a long time ago. But it was a special character so I’ve always kept her in a drawer,” adding that the TV show “seemed like the perfect place” for her to return. 

“She’s a possibly thousand-year-old princess warrior from the Mayan era,” Smith explained. “She’s been around for a long time. She’s been with Black Badge [the division of the U.S. Marshals Service that deals with the paranormal] since it’s creation.” Smith goes on to describe the character in the comics as “Xena, Warrior Princess crossed with Spock from Star Trek.” Valdez is “very logical” and “she doesn’t suffer fools,” said Smith. 

The creator has total confidence in Andras’ ability to adapt the character for TV, saying, “She’s proven already…any twists and turns, she can do it.”  

Wynonna has to learn how to use a sword

In Season 3, Wynonna gets a new weapon. She’s been dealing with the gun, Peacemaker, for years now, so it was an adjustment for Scrofano for sure. “Listen, I forgot that I had a sword,” she said. “So I’m hoping I can convince Em [Andras] that the sword is too violent.” Scrofano brought up how Wynonna wasn’t good at using a gun in the beginning, so maybe it could be the same for the sword. “You can be bad at having a sword,” Andras conceded. 

How will Wynonna cope without her sister and her love interest around? “I think what’s interesting is that Greg [Lawson, who plays Sheriff Nedley] over there — it’s just the two of us. I think it’ll be interesting to see how she maybe leans on him a bit. Or maybe he’ll lean on her.”

She continued, talking about the characters’ different roles in the show. “Waverly is very much like ‘Let’s figure this out, team’ and it will be interesting to see if Wynonna has to be the one to do that, how she steps up to that.”  

Nedley is up for a challenge

“I find it really interesting that here’s this guy who’s been trying to retire. He didn’t want to retire, and he goes through that struggle. And he finally convinces himself that everything is right now, it’s perfect, I can retire. And then this happens,” Lawson said of how Nedley will deal with the sudden disappearance of citizens of Purgatory.  

Of course, Nedley has a lot going for him: His friendship with Wynonna, and his rodeo background, which we only just discovered. This seems like something Lawson is very interested in learning about, along with any opportunity he has to shoot a gun. “I’m an eight-year-old, and I always wanted to be an action hero! I just liked walking down the hallway, loading the shotgun.”

Waverly develops powers

A fan asked if now that we know that Waverly is a half-angel, will we get to see some more special abilities from her beyond wielding the power of the ring? Andras says she worries sometimes about making Waverly too powerful and throwing off the dynamic of the series. 

“I think so much of what defines Wynonna and Waverly is that in some ways they each have what the other one wants,” she said. “I think that Waverly really always wanted to be the Earp heir and be kind of the chosen one. And I think deep down, despite everything, Wynonna would give it all up to be loved and belong. So I think those themes have to stay the same. Until they don’t.”

‘The Bachelorette’: Why JoJo Fletcher The Most Loved Bachelorette Of All Time

True Bachelor Nation fans can attest that we’re currently in the midst of one of the most entertaining seasons of the ABC hit show, The Bachelorette. Hannah Brown finally unleashing the beast onto Luke P. was well worth the wait. Though Brown is getting a fair amount of attention, former Bachelorette, Joelle ‘JoJo’ Fletcher, is never far from the spotlight. With a whopping 2.2 million followers on Instagram alone, Fletcher is arguably the most popular Bachelorette of all time, managing to usurp even those who have been active in the franchise for several years. But just why is Fletcher so loved? Let’s take a look.

The Bachelor

While half of Bachelor Nation was falling for Ben Higgins on Season 20 of The Bachelor, the other half was falling for Fletcher, the beautiful, funny, and supportive brunette. Fletcher proved to be a great support system not only for Higgins but also for other contestants on the show. The 28-year-old was always shown as the sweet listener who stayed far away from drama. It seemed that Fletcher never had an unkind thing to say about anyone, and thus none of the other women had anything negative to say about her. Even after her heartbreak, Fletcher remained supportive and understanding of Higgins’ relationship with Lauren Bushnell following their engagement.

The Bachelorette

Never had Bachelor Nation been so unanimously supportive of a casting choice then when Fletcher was announced as the lead for The Bachelorette. Fans rallied around her throughout her journey to find true love. Even after her season ended, the 28-year-old has always expressed the utmost poise and gratitude for the opportunity to be on both shows. Recently, she attended a reunion special of The Bachelorette and reflected about her experiences with other members of the show.

Following the reunion, Fletcher took to her Instagram to express her gratitude. “What a surreal feeling being back here, with our fairy godfather Chris Harrison, and a band of women that are all SO beautiful, strong, badass & uniquely different- yet have walked in the same shoes… I am so thankful to be a part of this family and to call these girls sisters! So much love Bachelorette Reunion Tonight!,” the fashion designer wrote.

Joelle Fletcher & Jordan Rodgers

Though fans initially were split on Jordan Rodgers, Fletcher’s choice in fiance, they eventually came around when it became obvious how much the two loved each other outside of the Bachelor Franchise. Now fans can’t stop gushing that the pair is “couple goals” and urging them to get married asap. Supporters of the show love the authentic relationship that Rodgers and Fletcher share, and both Fletcher and Rodgers add fuel to the fire by constantly penning sweet notes about each other. “I  feel so lucky. So lucky to be doing what I’m doing, chasing dreams, and having you chase them alongside me. Life with you is fun, my love,” Fletcher recently wrote about her fiance.

Fletch

We should’ve known that Fletcher would start a fashion line after she graced us with the stunning gown on the season finale of The Bachelor. All season, Fletcher has proved that she had great style sense, but that dress solidified it for us. Since completing her tenure in the show, Fletcher has launched a clothing company, Fletch, which features a variety of fun and beautiful pieces and silhouettes.

The About sections on the Fletch’s website describes the brand as such: “Founded in 2017, Fletch is a contemporary lifestyle collection by Joelle Fletcher. Fletch is all about fitting one’s personality and mood – from feeling bold and empowered to feeling feminine and flirty. The collection offers a range of versatile pieces that enhance your individuality from feminine prints, fun necklines, wearable separates and bold evening looks. – with a look for every occasion.” The brand is cute and fun and is a favorite of a number of other contestants in the franchise.

Cash Pad TV Show

But Fletcher wasn’t content with just one business. While she began building her fashion empire, she still never lost sight of her career in real estate. Fletcher continued to flip houses even whilst launching Fletch, and that commitment has led her to a new career opportunity. She and Rodgers will be returning to the small screen to head up their new show, Cash Pad, where they turn a profit flipping houses. We stand for a versatile queen with beauty and brains.

Bachelor Royalty

It’s no wonder that Jojo Fletcher stands out as one of the most beloved contestants in the franchise. With incredible fashion sense, brains, beauty, and a great love story, Fletcher was the perfect choice for The Bachelorette. She and Rodgers have been hinting that they’ll be announcing their wedding soon, so we wish the happy couple all the best.

Hannah Brown Hopes Her Relationship With Luke P. Can Help Other Women In Toxic Relationships

For months now, Bachelor Nation has been concerned about Hannah Brown’s relationship with Luke Parker. Fans have taken to social sites to point out the controversial contestant’s problematic behavior to Brown on an almost daily basis. And when fans aren’t trying to point out Parker’s red flags to the Bachelorette, they’re posting their own personal stories of being in toxic relationships. 

As of last night’s “Men Tell All” episode, Parker has been officially booted from the show.

He was inconsistent in his interview with host Chris Harrison, in his conversations with the other contestants, and his conversations with Brown. He did apologize to Brown for making “the whole process for you so difficult,” and told his fellow former contestants that he “didn’t like the Luke” he saw on his television screen. But he also said he wouldn’t change any of his behavior if he could go back.

Hannah opens up about the reason she latched onto Luke P. so intensely  

Brown began her interview with Harrison by diving into the root of her relationship with Parker. Like many women in toxic relationships, she says her connection with Parker was born out of insecurity.  

“I will never try to say that the feelings that I had for him weren’t real because they were. It was the closest thing that I had to feeling love at first sight. But I think a lot of that came from being really insecure about being The Bachelorette in the first place. I remember that when I got the call from you I was so excited but also I had this doubt of Oh my gosh are the guys gonna be disappointed? And am I gonna be able to live up to this standard that I thought I had to live up to. And the first night there, there is this huge fear of what your intentions are. That night, Luke made me believe that he was there for me and gave me hope from the beginning, and I held onto it a lot longer than I should have but it gave me safety. Ok, at least one guy’s here for me,” she explained. 

View this post on Instagram

I want you all to know why I went on this TV show and why I went back for @alabamahannah after she sent me home. I never wanted to go on the show to begin with, my sister in law @hleaparker22 signed me up and I kept an open mind. Going through the interview process I watched Colton’s season and a beautiful southern girl stood out to me during the intro videos. She told the cameras she respected Colton’s virginity and that it was super appealing to her that he was a virgin, and was the bachelor because sex was a big deal to her. I saw her Instagram and in her bio read “I love Jesus with my whole heart”, I was sold and if I was going on this TV show it was for her. I also noticed she told Colton how she wanted to be a wife of Noble character. I knew she was quoting Proverbs 31 which gave me the impression there is a way God could use this show… yes, even the “Bachelorette” as a way to bring him Glory. The first night I made her a Proverbs 31 bracelet then explained to her that I noticed what she said to Colton and I knew where it came from and how important my faith was to me. Shortly after that, I get the first impression rose. On my hometown date I brought Hannah to a bible study with my college church group, where I shared my story of how God transformed my life and gave me a desire to live my life for him in obedience, that included waiting until marriage for sex. Hannah on the date, stands up and tells the group her story of how she was convicted to live a life in pursuit of Jesus. She also told them that she wasn’t going to use the fantasy suites for sex but for conversation, no matter how @abcnetwork made it look. I had to go back and fight for her, I believed in my heart she was making the biggest mistake of her life based on what she was telling me, I wanted her to know that we could get through this and I was here for her. #thebachelorette

A post shared by Luke Joshua Parker (@luke_parker777) on

Brown says, looking back, there were so many signs that Parker wasn’t good for her, including the shame he made her feel. 

“Now, looking back, it wasn’t just that moment. I had been blind to everything that had been happening,” she said. “That night, I felt it and saw it for myself and that was when it just snapped for me. Now I’m like I will not put up with this because that’s not love, that’s not what the person I want to spend the rest of my life with’s ever gonna make me feel. I’m so over being slut-shamed and feeling like that makes me not a woman of faith.”

“I’m not gonna stand here and feel that way. You’re not gonna make me feel that way,” she told Parker. 

Why Hannah doesn’t regret her relationship with Luke P. 

Brown says she doesn’t regret her relationship with Parker for a second. Not only did she learn “a lot from the experiences that I went through,” she hopes she can inspire other women in toxic relationships.   

“I don’t regret the way that it happened because I feel like the relationship that I had with Luke, unfortunately, it’s a relationship that a lot of women can relate to. A lot of women have been in toxic relationships and maybe, just maybe, me going through that and being able to remember my worth and figure that out for myself can help somebody that’s in that now see the signs of that and, ultimately, that makes me realize that I don’t have regrets because that was worth all of it,” she said to an audience full of cheering women.

The Heartbreaking Reason Why Princess Diana Never Had More Children

There’s no denying that Princess Diana had a drama-filled
life
. From finding out her prince husband was in love with another woman to
constantly being chased by paparazzi, it seems that everything that could go wrong
for Diana did go wrong. And now it gets worse — it turns out the People’s
Princess wanted to have more
children
but never did for this very good reason.

Even her son Prince Harry allegedly pressured Princess Diana
to give him a little brother or sister, as children do. But Princess Diana could
never fulfill
his desires
even if she wanted to.

Princess Diana never remarried after her divorce

Though they had split up long before, Princess Diana and
Prince Charles didn’t finalize their divorce until August 28, 1996, about one year
before her
tragic death
. But over the years after their marriage fell apart, Diana did
engage in a series of affairs ranging from casual to serious.

Perhaps the most well-known lover Diana had was Dodi Fayed, the billionaire heir who lost his life in that infamous car accident in Paris. But he and Diana had only been dating a few months when they passed away. Fayed wasn’t the man she wanted to marry and have more children with.

Princess Diana just wanted to settle down and expand her
family

The true love of Princess Diana’s life was heart surgeon
Hasnat Khan, who had the appropriate nickname “Mr. Wonderful.” She began a two-year relationship
with him in 1995 and would have happily married him. Sadly, the pressure of
fame was too much for this couple to bear.

Royal expert Ingrid Stewart explained it this way in Daily Mail, recalling a time she interviewed Princess Diana: “We discussed if she’d get married again. She said Harry was always asking her to have another baby because he was fed up with being the youngest.

But it was a
bit difficult, she told him, because she wasn’t married.

She said she’d
love more children, and she didn’t see herself being single forever. Harry
wanted her to get married again, but William didn’t. He wanted Diana to be all
there for him.

Then she said, ‘Well, I have to marry someone who’s prepared to cope with me.’”

Diana couldn’t marry the love of her life

Though Hasnat Khan has remained notoriously private on the
matter, sources speculate that the pair couldn’t
get married
for several reasons. The first is that the pressure of living in
the public spotlight would have put a considerable strain on their relationship
— at one point, Khan had to be snuck into Diana’s home by hiding in the trunk
of a car. It was all a lot to take.

Plus, the pair was very different culturally. Khan was a practicing Muslim from Pakistan. Diana was not. In a rare interview, Hasnat Khan says he couldn’t have married Diana or that their relationship wouldn’t have lasted if they had wed. Even though they did love each other.

Princess Diana wanted to have more kids

Of course, Princess Diana never had more kids with Prince
Charles because by the time she was ready to think about a third, their divorce
was already imminent. But she would have married again and had more children if
it wasn’t for how badly the royal family tainted her future and ruined her
life.

Ultimately, we’ll never know if Princess Diana could have found happiness over time. And that’s a true shame, because she would have been an excellent mother to her future children, too.

How Did Shay Mitchell Meet Boyfriend Matte Babel?

Shay Mitchell is a Canadian-born actress that started out her career as a model when she was just a teenager. Soon, she realized that she loved acting and she is most known for her role on the hit show Pretty Little Liars where she played the role of Emily Fields from 2010 until 2017.

She also appears in the Netflix original series You and has her own popular YouTube channel.

Recently, Mitchell announced that she is pregnant and fans from all over the world were quick to show their support and congratulate her. While many fans are ecstatic to hear that she will soon be a mother, many are wondering who the father of her unborn baby is.

So who is Mitchell’s boyfriend and where the two meet? Here is everything that you need to know about the Pretty Little Liars alumn’s relationship with her boyfriend.

Who is Shay Mitchell’s boyfriend?

Mitchell and Matte Babel have been dating for two years. Many of Mitchell’s fans were surprised to hear that she was dating anyone because she had kept details of their relationship pretty private for the last two years. However, after she announced that she was pregnant, he had appeared on her YouTube channel and is expected to be on there more regularly now that they are expecting a child together.

Matte Babel is 38 years old is also from Canada. Just like Mitchell, Babel works in the entertainment industry and worked as a TV host and reporter for Entertainment Tonight in Canada.

According to Access, Babel has also dabbled in the world of acting and has appeared on two episodes of Degrassi: The Next Generation. He now works at a management and entertainment company named Dreamcrew that works closely with many musical artists, including Drake to help oversee their careers.

Where did Mitchell meet boyfriend Babel?

Mitchell goes to great lengths to try to remain a very private person. She has never been one to share personal information about herself to the media.

However, Entertainment Tonight reported that they had met each other through a mutual friend and that they had started dating in late 2016.

They had tried to keep their romance a secret for as long as possible, but it was almost impossible for the two to deny that they had feelings for each other when Babel had a very flirtatious interview with Mitchell while he was still working with Entertainment Tonight.

Mitchell and Babel are expecting their first child together

Mitchell just recently announced that she and Babel are expecting their first baby together. She waited until she was about six months pregnant before she went public with her big news.

Many people were shocked that she was able to keep the news of her pregnancy a secret for so long, but they soon would realize why she was so apprehensive to let the world know too soon. 

Mitchell admitted on her YouTube channel that last year, she and Babel were expecting a baby. When she was only about 14 weeks pregnant, she lost her baby when she sadly had a miscarriage.

She shared with her fans that she was not expecting to hear the news that she had lost her baby and the when she found out that she had lost her baby, she was completely “blindsided.”

Because miscarriages can be such a traumatic thing for parents to go through, it is understandable that she was unwilling to let the public know about her pregnancy until she was further along and somewhat in the clear from experiencing another miscarriage. 

Mitchell and Babel also made a YouTube video of their funny gender reveal, where it was discovered that the soon-to-be-parents will be welcoming a little girl into the world very soon.

Robert Downey, Jr.’s Deleted ‘Weird Science’ Scene Revealed On New Blu-ray

John HughesWeird Science satisfied many boys’ fantasies about creating their dream girl. Nerds Gary (Anthony Michael Hall) and Wyatt (Ilan Mitchell-Smith) used their computer to create Lisa (Kelly LeBrock), who turned their worlds upside down. It was also an early role for future box office star Robert Downey, Jr.

I was eight years old when I saw Weird Science in 1985 and I tried to recreate their experiment by hooking my sister’s Barbie doll up to wires and plugging them into an outlet. I’m lucky I didn’t burn the house down. Now an older, wiser movie lover, it’s fun to learn stories of Weird Science 34 years later. 

Arrow Video has just released a new special edition Blu-ray of Weird Science, restoring the film to look exactly as it did playing in theaters in 1985, complete with all the grain dancing around the screen. They also interviewed many cast and crew members. Here are four things you can learn from the Weird Science Blu-ray, and you can discover even more when you watch it. 

Weird Science

Robert Downy, Jr. turned into a pig

In one of his early roles, Downey played a bully who torments Gary and Wyatt along with his co-bully, played by Robert Rusler. Originally, the bullies got more of a comeuppance in Weird Science. They got turned into a pig and a donkey, with Downey as the pig.

Though the scene was cut from the film, special makeup creator Craig Rearden showed pictures of the pig and donkey heads he sculpted, and even some behind the scenes photos of Downey and Russler wearing them.

Of course, we have to take his word for it that that’s really Downey under there, but who else would have worn the pig head? It’s a shame the full deleted scene isn’t included in the bonus features.

Robin Wright was this close to playing Lisa in ‘Weird Science’ 

Casting director Jackie Burch reveals that Kelly LeBrock was not the first choice for Lisa. Robin Wright was cast but they lost her to a soap opera. 34 years later, we can’t imagine anyone but LeBrock in the role, although Sharon Stone went out for the role too.

John Hughes was late

Rearden is also the one who turned Bill Paxton into a blob. He shared that when he had his first meeting with writer/director John Hughes, Hughes kept him waiting over 40 minutes. Rearden was in high demand, and he’d booked a gig on Steven Spielberg’s production of The Goonies

It was producer Joel Silver who smoothed things over between Hughes and Reardon. Reardon eventually came back and was hired to design the blob, and he shares more stories about when the puppet didn’t work on the Blu-ray.

Ira Newborn is a legendary composer who’s scored comedies like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and the theme song for The Naked Gun. He’s a very soft-spoken man, so turn your TV’s volume up for his interview. At the end of his interview, Newborn admits he was so smitten by Kelly LeBrock that he could barely speak to her.

Who wasn’t smitten by LeBrock in 1985, really? She was in a commercial saying, “Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful.” And we didn’t hate her for it! Most of us still are today. He couldn’t have a conversation, but it inspired Newborn to write her theme music.

Prince Andrew Has This Odd Nickname For His Mother, Queen Elizabeth II

When meeting Queen Elizabeth II many people aren’t sure what to call her. The royal family website states that formal address is “Your Majesty,” but there are no obligatory codes of behavior about how to refer to her. Apparently, there’s no specific protocol for what her own family should call her either since most of them have adopted quite a few nicknames for her.

Here are some of the adorable names other royals call Her Majesty and the odd nickname the queen’s favorite son, Prince Andrew, has for her.

Nicknames in the York family

The prince is no stranger to using nicknames within his family. Andrew, the Duchess of York, and their two daughters all have sweet nicknames they go by.

Sarah Ferguson has had the nickname “Fergie” for years but that’s not what her youngest daughter, Princess Eugenie, calls her. Instead, she refers to her as “Mumsie.” The duchess returns the nickname favor by calling the princess “Eugie.”

And what does Eugenie call her father? In an Instagram post to mark Prince Andrew‘s birthday, she revealed that she calls her dad “Papa.”

During an interview with British Vogue, Princess Beatrice said that her nickname for her sibling is “Euge.” In turn, Eugenie shortens her big sis’ first name as well to “Bea.”

So what is the Duke of York‘s nickname for his mom?

In his book The Playboy Prince, royal biographer Andrew Morton wrote that growing up Andrew always called his mother “Mamba,” and she wasn’t the only person he called by that name.

“The toddler had a special joint name for Nanny Anderson and his mother — ‘Mamba,’” Morton said.

The author also wrote about what Prince Philip nicknamed his second son. Morton noted that Philip referred to a young Andrew as “The Boss.”

Andrew is not the only one who has called the queen by a nickname. In fact, many of her family members have a bunch of different nicknames for Her Majesty from her husband to her great-grandchildren.

The Duke of Edinburgh calls his wife “Cabbage.” It’s unclear exactly why he chose to give her the nickname but according to The Times, it may have originated from the French phrase “mon petit chou,” which translates to “my little cabbage” and also “my little pastry puff.”

Queen Elizabeth’s parents used to call her “Lilibet,” which was inspired by the way she pronounced her name as a little girl. Hello! magazine noted that Prince Philip still calls her by her childhood name sometimes as well.

The queen’s grandchildren and great-grandchildren also have special names for the monarch. Prince Harry and Princess Eugenie for example often refer to her as “Granny,” while Prince William used to call her “Gary” when he was little. And her great-grandkids like Prince George and Princess Charlotte call her “Gan Gan.”

‘The Bachelorette’: Can Contestants Come Back Once They are Eliminated?

The story of Luke Parker is officially over. At least for now. The man who plagued this season of The Bachelorette has finally been sent home. And while fans are excited that Parker won’t be on their tv screens any longer, they have been wondering how he stayed there for so long.

He was essentially sent home twice and then allowed to come back to fight for Hannah Brown again.

This last time, he was sent packing after he shamed Brown for having sex on one of her Fantasy Suite dates.

I want you all to know why I went on this TV show and why I went back for @alabamahannah after she sent me home. I never wanted to go on the show to begin with, my sister in law @hleaparker22 signed me up and I kept an open mind. Going through the interview process I watched Colton’s season and a beautiful southern girl stood out to me during the intro videos. She told the cameras she respected Colton’s virginity and that it was super appealing to her that he was a virgin, and was the bachelor because sex was a big deal to her. I saw her Instagram and in her bio read “I love Jesus with my whole heart”, I was sold and if I was going on this TV show it was for her. I also noticed she told Colton how she wanted to be a wife of Noble character. I knew she was quoting Proverbs 31 which gave me the impression there is a way God could use this show… yes, even the “Bachelorette” as a way to bring him Glory. The first night I made her a Proverbs 31 bracelet then explained to her that I noticed what she said to Colton and I knew where it came from and how important my faith was to me. Shortly after that, I get the first impression rose. On my hometown date I brought Hannah to a bible study with my college church group, where I shared my story of how God transformed my life and gave me a desire to live my life for him in obedience, that included waiting until marriage for sex. Hannah on the date, stands up and tells the group her story of how she was convicted to live a life in pursuit of Jesus. She also told them that she wasn’t going to use the fantasy suites for sex but for conversation, no matter how @abcnetwork made it look. I had to go back and fight for her, I believed in my heart she was making the biggest mistake of her life based on what she was telling me, I wanted her to know that we could get through this and I was here for her. #thebachelorette

Parker’s return

Just because Brown wanted him gone, didn’t mean Parker was ready to quit.

“Hannah thought after sending me in the van that there’s no way I’d want to be with her anymore after the last thing she told me,” he said after being sent home. “She’s sadly mistaken.”

“She doesn’t realize I still love her and that I’m not through,” he continued. “This isn’t over for me yet. I couldn’t go home without talking to her again and sharing my heart with her and getting a few things off my chest. She has never told me that she loves me, but I know she loves me. I know without a shadow of a doubt she still has feelings for me. I believe she’s making a big mistake, and I’m going to tell her that. She doesn’t know it yet, but I’m on my way and I’m coming. I want to prove to her how serious I am about this.”

Fortunately, Brown didn’t allow Parker to come back this time.

“Leave!” she told Parker when he tried to talk to her. “I’m so tired. You’re so narcissistic. It’s my this, my that. This is not about your heart. I’m sorry that your heart is broken, but you’ve already broken my heart like 15 times through all of this by me trying to make this work.”

Can ‘Bachelorette’ contestants come back whenever they want?

Though it didn’t work the last time, Parker did successfully return to The Bachelorette once.

So, can anyone just return after being eliminated whenever they want?

Apparently, it’s all up to production.

“There were a lot of discussions about Luke [coming back the second time],” Harrison said on the Bachelor Party podcast, according to Entertainment Tonight. “We, as producers, were thinking there’s going to be some Luke P. fatigue setting in about now, and, if left to our devices, we probably would have gotten rid of him and that storyline earlier to get Hannah on track for what we would hope to be a happy ending.”

Though they knew the storyline was getting old, production ultimately decided to let Parker come back.

“We knew there would be fatigue, but Hannah and Luke P. couldn’t resolve their relationship and their issues, so therefore it lingered on, and he needed to come back, because it wasn’t done,” Harrison continued. “And he wasn’t done.”

Harrison did worry that letting Parker return would cause an altercation to break out amongst the men who were tired of Parker’s antics, but ultimately, his reappearance was needed to shut that door.

“I could have pushed it even further, and it could have been a mess, if we really wanted that as television,” he said. “That’s not what we wanted there. I didn’t want Hannah to have that in her life. An altercation… had no purpose for us. The purpose [of having Parker come back] was, make your final choice, make it in front of the men… let’s move on.”
