-If you’re looking for a good read, check out this Terry Crews interview, in which he talks about how his relationship to Hollywood changed since he joined the #MeToo movement. “I walk in the room, and the room is split right down the middle…People don’t understand that Hollywood is a very violent place. The best way to put it is that it’s like a plantation. You use extreme violence. You see a lot of people who never work again. For even speaking up the whole thing is that they cut your head off so that the next person doesn’t speak.”

-Also, I love that all the comments on the article are so supportive. When does the internet ever do that?

Mandy Moore doesn’t want to hear your morbid Frozen/Tangled fan theories, ok?

-I am very glad Bravo Canada has picked up The Handmaid’s Tale. Yay!
