Greta Gerwig, who I am confident can excel at just about anything to which she puts her beautiful mind, has signed on to co-write Warner Bros. and Mattel’s forthcoming Barbie movie with her extremely twee partner, Noah Baumbach.

When Harry Met Sally was a perfectly decent movie, but you know what would have made it a great movie?

How is it that My Best Friend’s Wedding is the only…
We’ve already addressed the fact that Irina Shayk is weathering her split from Bradley Cooper by wearing a vinyl skirt in a helicopter. Excellent recovery strategy! B+! But breakups are a war, and in this case, I think Bradley Cooper’s lunch with Laura Dern was exactly the right move.
I can’t predict how well The Lion King is going to fare in theaters, but I can guess people would show up in spades if it included full audio of what’s thought to be the first-ever in-person conversation shared by Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Beyoncé and Jay-Z at the movie’s UK premiere.

I’ve been waiting for a long time to bring this up, and now that the live-action Lion King is on the cusp of its release, I finally can. You know male lions?
