Exclusive: Lisa Kudrow Says Romy and Michele Would Be Reality Stars 20 Years After 'High School Reunion'

Exclusive: Lisa Kudrow Says Romy and Michele Would Be Reality Stars 20 Years After 'High School Reunion'
It’s been 20 years since Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino strapped on their blood-filled shoes and headed back to Tuscon for Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion, but fans of the 1997 comedy haven’t forgotten the cult classic (or the all-important formula for glue).

So, when Et’s Carly Steel spoke with Kudrow at the Boss Baby junket last month, we couldn’t help but ask where she thought the indomitable best friends would be, 20 years after proving that all you need to wow your old classmates is confidence, a loyal best friend and a perfectly choreographed dance number.

“Hopefully she would still be married to Sandy,” Kudrow said of her character, who found love at the film’s end with her class’s resident geek-turned-billionaire, Sandy Frink (Alan Cumming). “And I think, you know, maybe she and Romy still have their store and probably a reality show.”

Romy and Michele's High School Reunion Turns 20: Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino Look Back--and Forward to a Possible Sequel
Twenty years after Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, we're still not sure who's the Mary and who's the Rhoda.  At this point, though, that doesn't really matter, because Romy White and Michele Weinberger are an iconic best friend duo all their own. The 1997 cult hit starring Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino is as relevant today as it was when platform heels reigned supreme (and not least because platforms are totally back). In fact, there's a musical based on the movie premiering this summer and even rumblings of a Romy and Michele sequel. "I would be very exited for [a sequel]," Sorvino, who played Romy, tells E! News exclusively. "I've wanted one for years!...

Justin Theroux is one of Hollywood's most interesting stars.

The writer/actor never became quite as famous as many of his peers, but he was always making very interesting choices and working with some of the best filmmakers in the business, namely David Lynch, who the actor frequently has collaborated with.

He recently shot to the forefront, mostly because of his very high profile relationship with actress Jennifer Aniston, and his current leading role on the under-seen and incredible HBO series "The Leftovers". Apart from this, Theroux has flown under the radar for a large part of his career, but we were one of the few paying attention.

This October, Theroux will co-star alongside Emily Blunt in the highly anticipated thriller The Girl on the Train,

25 mainly forgotten Us number 1 movies from the 2000s

Kevin Spacey, Steven Seagal and, erm, Kangaroo Jack: they all nabbed the box office top spot last decade...

By the end of the 2000s, getting number one at the American box office was a valuable marketing commodity. As such, studios pumped more and more money into making sure they at least had a great opening weekend for their product.

The consequence of this was that it was harder and harder for smaller and quirkier films to take a brief spot in the sun. Certainly towards the second half of the decade, it seems that the number one movie each week was pre-ordinained in a marketing meeting somewhere.

Still, there were some films that have since fallen out of public view that clawed their way to number one. How many of these do you remember?
