Henry Golding Told Jimmy Fallon Why He Said
It's hard not to "crazy swoon" over Hollywood newcomer Henry Golding, but he almost avoided the movie scene completely. The Crazy Rich Asians star stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Aug. 15 to talk about his new film and revealed he was resistant to joining at first. Henry worked as a travel host before being cast as Nick Young, and didn't feel experienced enough for the cinematic world.

"They sent, probably three or for emails asking me to audition," Henry told Jimmy. "I was like, 'No, no, no. I'm not an actor. I'm sure there's somebody really amazing, ready for this role and the studio's not going to game on a newbie or a greenhorn.'"

Fortunately, the film's director Jon M. Chu convinced Henry to reconsider joining the cast and the rest is history. Watch the video above for more details on Henry's journey to becoming his character,

Greta Gerwig's Little Women Remake Is Already Shaping Up to Have the Best Cast
Greta Gerwig is picking up steam on her next project, which will see her dusting off a true classic: the Oscar nominee has signed on to direct 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.

35 York Family Photos That Show How Close They've Stayed After Dealing With Divorce

  • Popsugar
Princess Eugenie of York is marrying Jack Brooksbank in October, and like most brides, she'll be doing so in front of close friends and adoring family members - however, 28-year-old Eugenie does have a "princess" title in front of her name, so the family members involved will be a bit more high-profile than your average relatives. Eugenie will tie the knot at St. George's Chapel in Windsor, England, the same place her cousin Harry married Meghan Markle in May. She is expected to be walked down the aisle by her father, Prince Andrew of York, at the wedding, which her mother, Sarah Ferguson, is reportedly "very involved" in planning.

A Commercial For The Nun Was So Damn Scary That YouTube Banned It From Their Site

A Commercial For The Nun Was So Damn Scary That YouTube Banned It From Their Site
If you found yourself suffering from nightmares after watching the trailer for The Nun, then consider yourself lucky you didn't encounter a recent YouTube ad for the upcoming horror film.

The footage was only six seconds long, but faked viewers out by beginning the clip with a volume control icon, and then flashing the image of the film's titular demonic Nun - in other words, one hell of a jump scare. After a YouTube user warned others to "look away and/or turn down the volume if you have anxiety or just straight up hate jumpscares" on Twitter, the video site banned the "violent and shocking" clip because it violated their policy.

Still Sad About The Middle's Last Season? Well, a Sue Heck Spinoff Is Coming to ABC

Although ABC's The Middle recently ended after an admirable nine-season run - the now-canceled Roseanne reboot took away its Tuesday night time slot - it seems Sue Heck is finally getting her due. Similarly to how Black-ish spawned a spinoff about eldest daughter Zoey Johnson (Yara Shahidi) in Grown-ish, The Middle has given way to a spinoff that will follow Sue, played by Eden Sher.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series will focus on "the 20-something adventures of eternal optimist Sue Heck as she leaves the small town of Orson to navigate the ups and downs of a career and young adulthood in Chicago." The last season of The Middle, which ended on May 22, was the perfect showcase for the character, who we got to see deal with romantic relationships while finishing her final year of college.
