For Julie Andrews' 83rd birthday on Oct. 1, she received a sweet Princess Diaries birthday shout-out from one of her dearest friends, Anne Hathaway, on Instagram! In the caption, Anne wrote a heartwarming poem to her mentor, who taught her how to be humble in Hollywood. "The importance of grace; The knowledge that power is nothing without respect; Why one must have patience, positivity, perspective, manners, kindness, and humility. Always, To everyone, (No exceptions); The joy in treating people as a gift rather than a burden; How far choosing gratitude can get you... If I know anything about any of this, It’s because I was lucky enough to have learned from the very best at the very beginning. Happy Birthday Julie, Queen Eternal.

Rihanna Finally Addresses Her Wine Glass Stealing Habit and We Can't Stop LOLing

As one of the eight leading ladies of Ocean's 8, Rihanna helps to pull off an audacious jewel heist at the most fashionable event of the year, the Met Gala. But us devoted followers of Ri-Ri already know that off-screen, too, our girl isn't averse to pulling off some (albeit lower key) little heists of her own — we're talking, of course, about the singer and part time actress meme-friendly penchant for walking out of a club, restaurant, or even a fashion show with a wine glass in hand. What happens to these wine glasses? Are the club owners a little perturbed that Rihanna has walked off with their crystal wear, or do they instead embrace it as a brilliant photo opportunity? And does Ri-Ri have a shelf devoted to these ill-gotten glass trophies, much like a kleptomaniac university undergraduate would have? (Photo Credit: Getty Images) When Rihanna appeared on the

How Is Ocean's 8 Related to All the Other Movies? Here Are the Connections

How Is Ocean's 8 Related to All the Other Movies? Here Are the Connections
We always knew Ocean's 8 was going to connect to the other Ocean's movies somehow. After all, the trailers for the film made it clear that the main character's name is Debbie Ocean, which isn't far off from the Danny Ocean (aka George Clooney) we meet in Ocean's 11, Ocean's 12, and Ocean's 13. And, I mean, we see Danny Ocean's grave as well. That's why it comes as no surprise that this film takes place in the same universe as all the other ones. But if you're wondering how exactly it fits in with its predecessors, we're happy to break it down for you. Here are all the ways, big and small, that Ocean's 8 connects to the original.

The natural starting place, of course, is the man himself: Danny Ocean. We learn very quick that Debbie is the sister of the deceased Danny Ocean, so there really aren't any questions about where she comes from.

Incredibles 2 Crushes the Box Office with Biggest Animated Movie Opening Ever

Incredibles 2 Crushes the Box Office with Biggest Animated Movie Opening Ever
Disney Pixar's Incredibles 2 opened much bigger than expectations with a massive $180 million, which easily broke the record for the highest debut for an animated film, set in 2016 by Finding Dory with $135 million. Most expected Incredibles 2 to break this record after it doubled Finding Dory's then-record Thursday tally of $9.2 million with $18.5 million, but now it's official. While it may only have one weekend at the top, with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom hitting theaters next weekend, it will likely have no trouble surpassing its predecessor, 2004's Incredibles.

Incredibles started its box office run in 2004 with an impressive opening of $70.4 million, en route to $261.4 million domestic and $633 million worldwide, from a relatively modest $92 million budget. While no budget figures were given for Incredibles 2 yet, it earned $55 million in international markets for a worldwide tally of $231.5 milion. Many box office analysts were predicting an opening weekend within the $130 million to $140 million range,

No, Ocean’s 8 Doesn't Have a Postcredits Scene - Here's Why It Doesn't Need One

No, Ocean’s 8 Doesn't Have a Postcredits Scene - Here's Why It Doesn't Need One
Ocean's 8 is so fun, so slick, and so visually stunning (those Gowns) that by the time the credits finally start to roll, you might not want to get up right away. To be fair, a performance as spectacular as the one Anne Hathaway gives as seemingly airheaded actress Daphne Kluger deserves a moment of reflection at the end of the film. As does Cate Blanchett's collection of suits. And Sandra Bullock's charmingly gritty Debbie Ocean. And Rihanna's . . . well . . . it's Rihanna.

You know what? Everyone in this movie - and we mean everyone, because this A-list cast is to die for - knocks it out of the park. That being said, we wouldn't advise sticking around once the credits appear for any reason other than trying to catch your breath after their epic Met Gala heist. Ocean's 8 does not go the postcredits scene route, à la Marvel,

A Running List of All the Unbelievable Cameos in Ocean's 8
When it comes to Ocean's 8, we already know we're looking at a pretty star-studded feature. After all, the movie's cast of characters is already jam-packed with A-listers including Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Sarah Paulson, and Rihanna. But given the fact that the film's biggest sequence is set at the Met Gala - we learned as much just from the glossy trailers - we should have guessed that we'd be seeing a lot more celebrities in addition to the eight fierce women who lead the film. We did our best to keep track of the most exciting cameos that made it into the final cut. Curious to see who you should be looking out for once the heist kicks into gear? Here's a running list of the famous faces therein.

This Is Exactly How Much You'll See of George Clooney's Danny Ocean in Ocean's 8

This Is Exactly How Much You'll See of George Clooney's Danny Ocean in Ocean's 8
Warning: Extremely mild spoilers for Ocean's 8 below!

The cast for Ocean's 8 is chock-full of A-listers - Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, and more - but there's one actor who is noticeably absent from the all-star lineup: George Clooney. Although the Suburbicon director originated the role of heist mastermind Danny Ocean in the initial trilogy - Ocean's Eleven, Ocean's Twelve, and Ocean's Thirteen - the character has been killed off in the new spinoff, which it hinted at in the movie's thrilling trailer.

The slick caper follows Danny's sister, Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock), as she devises a plan to pull off a jewelry heist at New York City's yearly Met Gala after being released from prison. With the help of her eclectic all-female crew, Debbie schemes to rob one celebrity (Hathaway) of her jaw-dropping $100-million necklace at some point throughout the event.

7 Movies You Totally Forgot Rihanna Was In
Rihanna is making waves in Hollywood thanks to her starring role as Nine Ball in the all-female reboot of Ocean's 8. However, this should come as no surprise given the fact that this isn't the singer's first rodeo. Prior to Ocean's 8, Rihanna appeared in a few other projects, including Battleship and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, and she also made cameos as herself in films like Bring It On: All or Nothing and This Is the End. Yes, Ocean's 8 might be Rihanna's biggest movie to date, but we have a feeling she's just getting started. Seriously, is there anything Rihanna can't do?

‘Ocean’s 8’ Star Calls Out ‘Unfair’ Dominance of White Male Film Critics
Ocean’s 8” star Mindy Kaling had some salt for white male film critics during a recent interview, criticizing the lack of diversity in film criticism and how that affects the reception of works featuring non-white and female performers.

“If I had to base my career on what white men wanted I would be very unsuccessful,” said Kaling in an interview with Yahoo. “So there is obviously an audience out there who want to watch things like [Ocean’s 8], what I work on, what Sarah [Paulson] works on.”

Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett Second Brie Larson in Championing More Diversity Among Film Critics

Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett Second Brie Larson in Championing More Diversity Among Film Critics
Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett are joining fellow Best Actress Oscar winner Brie Larson in pushing for more inclusion among film critics. The “Ocean’s 8” leads spoke to London newspaper The Telegraph about the issue, a revived industry talking point since Monday’s publication of “Critic’s Choice?,” a USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative report on how white male reviewers dominated the dialogue around last year’s biggest films.

Bullock wants to “balanc[e] out the pool of critics so that it reflects the world we are in.” According to the USC Annenberg report, the U.S. population consists of 30 percent white men, 30 percent white women, 20 percent underrepresented men, and 20 percent underrepresented women. Meanwhile, white male critics wrote almost 64 percent of the 19,559 Rotten Tomatoes reviews consulted as research.

“A studio can support a film and it’s the invisible faces on the internet, and often male reviewers, who can view it through a prism of misunderstanding,

'Incredibles 2' Positioned for a Record Breaking Opening Weekend

'Incredibles 2' Positioned for a Record Breaking Opening Weekend
While last weekend's overall results showed a slight improvement compared the prior weekend's slumping box office returns, this weekend should see a much larger bump as Disney and Pixar release the highly anticipated Incredibles 2 into theaters. The Pixar sequel is the first fully animated wide release since March's Sherlock Gnomes, and it would appear the animated opening weekend record set by Finding Dory two years ago is in jeopardy. This weekend also sees the release of the R-rated comedy Tag from Warner Bros., Sony's Superfly, which debuted on Wednesday, as well as a pair of moderate releases in Vertical's Gotti starring John Travolta and Yash Raj's Race 3. Debuting in 4,410 theaters, Disney and Pixar's Incredibles 2 arrives 14 years after the 2004 original, marking the longest gap between sequels for the animated house besting 2016's release of the 13-years-later sequel, Finding Dory. In fact, it's looking to top Finding Dory's $135 million debut,
