Return to Hogwarts New Year’s Day

Accio HBO MAX!

While you’re nursing a champagne hangover tomorrow, you’re welcome to visit the wizarding world of Hogwarts.

Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts premiers on HBO Max on New Year’s Day.

During the 1hr 45-minute reunion, we’ll find out who Emma Watson had a crush on, how star-struck the younger cast members were with the seasoned actors, and how director Chris Columbus discovered Daniel Radcliffe.

Don’t ask Nicole Kidman about ex Tom Cruise

Nicole Kidman quickly shut down a question about her marriage to ex-husband Tom Cruise.

 In an interview with The Guardian, she spoke about her recent film “Being the Ricardos” in which she plays the legendary Lucille Ball.

She explained,” You can’t make people behave how you want them to, and sometimes you’re going to fall in love with someone who isn’t going to be the person you spend the rest of your life with. And I think that’s all very relatable. You may have kids with them. You may not, but they were very much in love.”

When asked whether she was referring on some level to her marriage to Tom Cruise, the actress had this response.

“Oh, my God, no, no. Absolutely not. No. I mean, that’s, honestly, so long ago that it’s not in this equation. And I would ask not to be pigeonholed that way, either. It feels to me almost sexist because I’m not sure anyone would say that to a man.” 

Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise met in 1989 on the set of the film “Days of Thunder” and married shortly after. They were married for 11 years and had two children together before divorcing in 2001.

They have been quiet about their marriage to each other, not discussing details publicly.

“The Rock” shuts down Vin Diesel’s plea to return to Fast & Furious” franchise

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson again reminds us that he will not be part of the final “Fast and Furious” movie. In fact, he sounds ticked off at Vin Diesel for bringing the subject up.

Last month, star of the Fast and Furious films Vin Diesel took to Instagram asking “The Rock” to return.

In the post, he refers to the late Paul Walker, writing, “I swore that we would reach and manifest the best Fast in the finale that is 10! I say this out of love… but you must show up, do not leave the franchise idle, you have a very important role to play.”

However, “The Rock” is having none of it, calling the post an example of Diesel’s manipulation.

In an interview with CNN, he explained he told Diesel personally and privately that he would not be returning to the franchise.

“I was firm yet cordial with my words and said that I would always be supportive of the cast and always root for the franchise to be successful, but that there was no chance I would return.” He said.

He also didn’t like that Diesel referred to his children and Paul Walker in the post.

“Leave them out of it” he added.
