    I don’t know this book/story at all but Katie Holmes looks beautiful in this movie and I will watch to see her. Love you Katie.

    @bonnie: Katie’s character is the Mother, so unlikely it’s just five minutes. Taylor’s character, however, will probably have only about five minutes of screen time, even if they added more than what’s in the books.

    Without Skarsgard this movie is crap. I hate Katie’s sad/angry face.

    @lol: wow now why do you have to mention “Mean Girls”? I haaaaaate that movie.

    @Meg Says:

    Surprised Jared didn’t post the latest pictures of Holmes at her hair care event. (that explains why her hair was brushed here)
    Notice picture 4 she has strings hanging below her dress.
    Can she ever get it just right?
    It’s improvement from Monday but still if you are going to an event for your own company can’t you fix the hem of your dress?
    Designer? does anyone wonder why it didn’t work out?
    Wonder how this hair company is doing in actual numbers.

    @pie: uh because someone asked a question? i didn’t think to get a raise of hands of which movies were okay and not okay to mention… sorry? not sorry.

    IOP, she would be smart to hone her acting skills so that she can tell everyone to take a flying leap. All this dressy stuff just reinforces that her frontal lobe is becoming more and more vacant.

    Why?? Says:

    Why suddenly every singer wants to become an actor/actress? You dont see that often if it is the other way around, a movie star who wants to become a musician and tour the world with his music. There few exceptions of course but suddenly is like a lot and singers who cannot even act.

    I mean since when Tayor Swift is an actress? Just because u are in a movie does not make u a movie talented star, Taylor is one of those examples

    @Sincerely Concerned:

    Katie Holmes already has fantastic acting skills. She can show so much emotion with her face without even saying a word. she is a natural born actress.
    Like they say “a star is born not made”. when you try to make a star you end up with justin bieber. LOL

    @David: dumb dumb, he said taylor swift FANS. If you do not believe her fans will go see a movie just because she is in it, you are delusional. These are the same fans who gave her the #1 tour in north america. These are the same fans who buy countless albums and singles. These are the same fans who are waiting with baited breath for this movie to be released. You better believe they will go, it will tide them over until her album is released in the fall.

    Wrong Says:

    @Why??: ummm I can name a few. In fact MORE than a few… Selena Gomez, Hilary Duff, Lindsay Lohan, Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Zendaya, Ariana Grande… should I go on? Every single person I just mentioned not only got their start in acting. The last two did High School Musical but they were already actresses before then, JLO was only a dancer before acting, the Disney kids participated in Disney sing-a-longs which got them deals while Lindsay Lohan just decided to be a singer. Even if they grew up singers, their careers were all actor and then singer. There are even more people than I named so the fact is that just as many singers want to be actors as there are actors who want to become singers. Everyone likes to dabble once they work in the industry.

    Every single person I just mentioned not only got their start in acting, but built their initial careers in it.*
