The Heartwarming Reason Dove Cameron Changed Her Name When She Started Acting
Disney Channel fans are probably already familiar with Dove Cameron's name. The 23-year-old actress and singer first got her start playing twins on Liv and Maddie, and Mal in the Disney Channel original movie Descendants. Since then, she has gone on to have roles on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., in Netflix's Dumplin', and even off-Broadway as Cher in Clueless.

While her name is certainly becoming more recognizable in the industry, what you might not know is that her birth name isn't actually Dove. The actress was born Chloe Celeste Hosterman, but decided to legally change it when she got into acting. She explained the heartbreaking backstory on social media, saying that "Dove" was actually a nickname her dad, Philip Hosterman, used to call her.

"My father passed away a few years ago, right around the time I started acting," she explained in an Instagram post in 2014. "So, I

Noah Centineo Is in Talks to Play He-Man, and We Have Just 1 Question
Everyone's favorite internet boyfriend might be transforming from a boy we've loved before to the legendary He-Man.

Noah Centineo is reportedly in talks to star in Sony Pictures and Mattel Films' reboot of the 1987 film, Masters of the Universe. The Dolph Lundgren and Courteney Cox-led film stemmed from Mattel's toy line, which also spawned the classic '80s animated TV series that aired from 1983 to 1985. For those who aren't as well-versed in the land of Eternia, the franchise follows Prince Adam, the protector of Eternia who transforms into the mighty warrior He-Man with the help of his magical sword. For some reason, the transformation involves shedding his clothes for a harness and speedo, but it was the '80s so we'll let it slide. He-Man's main nemesis, Skeletor, is well-known for becoming the face of various memes, which is probably the only time he's succeeded at anything.

Jennifer Lopez Gushes About Alex Rodriguez, and My Faith in Love Has Been Restored
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez are floating on cloud nine after getting engaged in the Bahamas earlier this month. "We're really happy," Jennifer recently told People. "Everything that we do, we do together. He knows my dreams and I know his dreams, and together we feel like we're stronger . . . we're constantly supporting each other in our individual endeavors and thinking about all the things that we can build together." "We have [an] appreciation for where we are in our lives today, and that's what we're enjoying the most," Alex added.

Jennifer and Alex were friends first before they started dating two years ago. While most couples would be taking some time to celebrate with their loved ones and just enjoy being engaged, let's not forget that Jennifer and Alex aren't most couples, because they've already jumped back into their work. On Wednesday, the power couple announced their new sunglasses collaboration with Quay Australia,

Jordan Peele Actually Has a Very Personal Connection to That C.H.U.D. Easter Egg in Us
There are a number of pop culture references in Jordan Peele's Us, but few have as personal a connection as one of the very first the director manages to slip in. (Note: very minor spoilers to follow!)

The very first scene in the film is of an old-school TV playing an ad for the 1986 event Hands Across America. Next to the TV are a few shelves holding VHS tapes, and The Goonies is one of them. But next to it, in a much plainer sleeve, is a copy of C.H.U.D.. If you haven't seen it, the 1984 horror-slash-sci-fi flick from director Douglas Cheek imagines what would happen if a bunch of murderous, humanoid monsters began pouring out of the sewers under New York City to seek revenge on humans.

If you've seen Us, hopefully you understand why Peele decided to include a nod to a film about creatures rising up

Viral Music Duo ''Lennon & Maisy'' Are All Grown Up and Still Making Music
Call your girlfriend, because these photos of Lennon and Maisy Stella have us shook. It's been nearly seven years since the musical sister act went viral with their impressive cover of Robyn's "Call Your Girlfriend" and a lot has happened since then. Not only were they invited to perform on Good Morning America in 2012, but they starred on the ABC series Nashville alongside the likes of Connie Britton until it's final episode aired in 2018. Not to mention, they are nearly unrecognizable from the 13 and 9-year-old that fans were introduced to in their popular YouTube video, which has accumulated over 30 million views.  Now that the popular country-centered...

Why Aidy Bryant Felt Shrill Was Her Story to Tell, and How It Empowered Her on SNL

By now, you should have had time to watch all of Hulu's Shrill. And maybe even watch it a second time. And maybe a third. It's such a quick watch—six episodes, each under half an hour—that it's massively impressive just how much the show manages to do and address as it tells the story of Annie (Aidy Bryant), an aspiring writer who starts to take a stand against what she's been settling for. She starts off in what we're clearly supposed to see as a sad non-relationship with a guy named Ryan (Luka Jones) who makes her sneak in and out through the back of his house so his roommates don't see her, and she won't even let him see her without a bra on. She's stuck in a low-level...

Why the "Jeremiah 11:11" Bible Verse Is So Important to Jordan Peele's Us

  • Popsugar
Why the
Once the credits for Jordan Peele's Us start to roll, you'll likely discover that your head is swirling with countless questions. Without spoiling anything, the ending is bonkers (and decidedly vague). In fact, the only nightmares I think I'm going to have are about all the unanswered questions Peele leaves me with. But fortunately there's one relatively simple question I can answer for us all without needing a Ph.D. in heady themes about free will, fate, identity, and the human being's innate fear of The Other: what does the Bible passage "Jeremiah 11:11" say?

An Explanation For Who - and What - the
Jordan Peele's second feature film, Us, is horrifying, to be sure. But by the time the credits start to roll, you might find yourself a little bit . . . confused, shall we say. Between all of the complex layers, hidden meanings, and creepy scares that are introduced over the course of the horror film, there is a lot to unpack. Who are the Tethered? And what do they want? Where did they come from? Put on your red jumpsuit and strap in, because we're breaking it all down ahead.

Once You've Mentally Recovered From Us, Find Out Why Josh Looked So Familiar
The reviews are in, and Us officially lives up to the hype. In fact, Jordan Peele's new horror film, starring Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong'o, Elisabeth Moss, and Tim Heidecker, currently has a 94 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Now that we've invested in a ginormous nightlight (a floor lamp from Target that we plan to leave on at all times), we've been doing a deep dive on our new favorite horror cast ensemble. We knew Heidecker, the actor who plays Josh Tyler/Tex, looked familiar, but when we realized we knew him as one half of Tim & Eric, we couldn't believe it. It turns out the actor-writer-comedian-director-musician is quite the chameleon, and his past work speaks for itself.

Heidecker got his start when he teamed up with Eric Wareheim to create, write, and star in the animated series Tom Goes to the Mayor, which aired on Adult Swim from 2004 to 2006. The

Kate Middleton Actually Wears 3 Rings on Her Ring Finger - Here's What They Represent
Whenever they're out in public, the women of the royal family never fail to appear in glamorous, glittering jewels - some brand-new, and some passed down through the generations. Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, is definitely a style icon, but one of the most meaningful pieces she wears is actually one of the subtlest: her wedding band.

Ever since her 2011 wedding, Kate has worn her wedding band on her left ring finger, nestled alongside the sapphire and diamond engagement ring that previously belonged to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana. According to Vogue, the slim wedding band is made of 18-karat Welsh gold: it's a simple, traditional bit of jewelry that is elegant in its simplicity. The future queen follows in the footsteps of many contemporary women and royal women in history, wearing her engagement ring and a simpler wedding band side by side. You have to look carefully, as it can

The Bachelor Formula Is Broken, and That's a Good Thing

The Bachelor Formula Is Broken, and That's a Good Thing
Every season of The Bachelor or Bachelor-adjacent shows, host Chris Harrison promises, "The most dramatic season yet." But with Colton Underwood's stint as The Bachelor, everything changed. We were given a riveting, dramatic season that lived up to Harrison's teases, especially when the final episodes entirely pivoted from what we've come to expect from the show. In the end, there were two painful break-ups in one day and there was no proposal: just the uncertain promise of a relationship that may or may not result in marriage. It feels more and more like The Bachelor's formula may be breaking, and I'm here for it.

The Bachelor franchise has relied on the same premise for years: a slew of suitors are paraded out of a limo with the expectation that they will all fall in love the universally desirable Bachelor/Bachelorette, and within weeks, one of those lucky contestants

Us: Thinking About Staying Put For a Postcredits Scene? Read This First
If there's one thing you should know about Jordan Peele's Us - other than that it'll give you nightmares for weeks - it's that the horror flick gives its audiences plenty of ideas to process by the time the credits start to roll. In addition to making you immediately cancel any and all vacations to California in the near future, it presents some intriguing ideas about America, the notion of "other," and the people we see when we look in the mirror. In short: it's a lot to take in.

Given the sheer volume of plot Peele squeezes into the film, you might be wondering if he also sneaks in a postcredits scene for one more spooky jolt. The answer is . . . nope! There's no need to stick around once the final terrifying scene wraps up if you're hoping for a zinger. Sadly, we'll have to wait for a third
