Miley Cyrus Calls Liam Hemsworth Her "Survival Partner," So We're at a New Level of Stanning

Miley Cyrus Calls Liam Hemsworth Her
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have been through ups and downs throughout the years, but it seems as though they're in a great place right now. On Dec. 12, the 26-year-old "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart" singer stopped by The Howard Stern Show and chatted about the current status of her relationship with the Australian hunk.

When asked whether Liam was her fiancé, Miley responded, "Yeah, kind of-ish. My partner - I call him my survival partner now. And he thinks it's not romantic, but I learned that is why you pair up with someone, for survival." The two have certainly depended on each other for support, especially recently when they lost their Malibu home in the 2018 Woolsey Fire.

Miley also explained how Liam was able to save their animals from the fire. "He was so incredible," she said. "He got all the animals out in his truck. He put two pigs in crates,

Little Women: Emma Watson Shares the First Sweet Photo From Greta Gerwig's Remake
Greta Gerwig is picking up steam on her next project, which will see her dusting off a true classic: the Oscar nominee is directing a new adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's Little Women.

If you missed it in high school English, Little Women follows four sisters - Amy, Jo, Beth, and Meg - who live with their mother in Massachusetts during the Civil War era. Their father is away, working as a chaplain in the war, and the family learns to lean on one another while spending their first holiday without him. The novel has been adapted for film six times, as well as having inspired TV musicals, plays, and even operas.

Gerwig was originally on board to write the movie but has since taken over as director, with a pretty impressive cast playing the iconic roles (*cough* Meryl! *cough*). Keep reading to see a sneak peek of the

Amy Poehler Is Fully on Board With a Parks and Rec Reboot - She Even Has Blazers Ready!
It's been three years since we tearfully bid adieu to Parks and Recreation, and we've pretty much been pining for a reboot ever since the emotional series finale aired. As it turns out, dedicated fans aren't the only ones on board with the idea of reuniting Pawnee's finest - leading lady Amy Poehler is, too. "I'm technically available," Poehler said at the 10th anniversary celebration dinner of Smart Girls, the organization she founded. "I have like six of Leslie's blazers in my closet, so anytime."

From 2009 to 2015, Poehler played the role of Leslie Knope, the competitive deputy director of the Pawnee Parks and Recreation Department, a proud waffle-lover, and an even prouder feminist. When the NBC sitcom ended, there were hints that Leslie would go on to become president. While addressing the possibility of a reunion, Poehler said she hadn't given much thought to Leslie's storyline, adding that maybe she'd be "president of the moon.

Everything Noah Centineo Has Said About the To All the Boys I've Loved Before Sequel

After months of speculation, Netflix finally has given official confirmation that a sequel to Summer's hit rom-com To All The Boys I've Loved Before is in the works! A sequel seemed likely, given the original film's strong numbers - and the fact that its source material, Jenny Han's Ya novel of the same name, is the first book of a trilogy - but it's nice to have it confirmed at last, and we're excited to see if the next film continues following the trajectory of the novels.

The most important question, now that the movie itself is confirmed, is whether or not the original cast will be back? In particular, leading man Noah Centineo, who played movie-boyfriend of our dreams Peter Kavinsky, has gotten a lot of publicity and popularity out of the film - will his schedule have room for a sequel? Luckily, the answer is probably yes: the entire original cast,

Constance Wu's Next Rom-Com Is About a Woman With a "Double Pregnancy" - Yes, That's a Thing

Constance Wu's Next Rom-Com Is About a Woman With a
Rom-com enthusiasts, bow down to your new queen: Constance Wu.

After starring in this Summer's biggest romantic hit, Crazy Rich Asians, the Fresh Off the Boat actress is reportedly doubling down on the genre, according to new rumors about her next film role. In an as-yet-unnamed romantic comedy directed by Glow star Kimmy Gatewood and executive produced by Elizabeth Banks, Wu would play a "charmingly chaotic woman who has to get her life together when she becomes pregnant with two babies from two different men."

Um, say what now?!

Yes, apparently Wu's character, if she does sign onto the film, will live out one of my actual nightmares when she endures a double pregnancy (though I'm sure her journey will be far less traumatizing). Savion Einstein wrote the screenplay about this case of "superfecundation," which is apparently a very, very rare condition that could, hypothetically, result in such a scenario.

Why Fans of the Original Mary Poppins Will Fall in Love With Mary Poppins Returns

Why Fans of the Original Mary Poppins Will Fall in Love With Mary Poppins Returns
Rebooting a classic film is always tricky: you want it to pay tribute to the original, but it also needs to stand on its own. While many reboots fail to find the right mix of nostalgia and originality, Mary Poppins Returns finds the perfect balance by adding a spoonful of sugar. Of course, one thing that works in the film's favor is that it's actually not a remake but a sequel. Set 20 years later, Mary Poppins (now played by Emily Blunt) returns to a grown-up Michael (Ben Whishaw) and Jane (Emily Mortimer) to teach them a few more valuable lessons. Not only is the film filled with sweet nods to the 1964 film, but it also brings the classic story to life in a whole new way. If you're a huge fan of Mary Poppins, here are just a few reasons you'll fall in love with the new film.
