Disney has a long history of churning out teen stars who seem wholesome on the small and big screen, but in real life, they’re champagne-swilling, cigarette-smoking, club-hopping messy menaces (you know who we’re referring to, no need to name names). These days, many of the newer stars have cleaned up their acts — but something else is happening. Instead of behaving far too grown in their off-duty lives, they’re looking downright adult on their shows. Whether it’s because they’re actually damn near thirty (like Albert on How to Build a Better Boy) or styled like a substitute teacher (Ally on Austin & Ally), the new class of Disney “teen” stars could easily pass for residents on Grey’s Anatomy.

From Zapped’s Zendaya to the so-called middle-schoolers on A.N.T. Farm, check out the most grown-looking characters on The Disney Channel.

The 5 Most Important Things To Know About Gone Girl

gonegirlmain

Gone Girl, one of the most anticipated films of 2014, is finally making its debut in theaters following what felt like years of hype. And thankfully, the movie about a woman who’s gone missing and the husband left to chase after her ghost lives up to every hyperbolic statement that has been said ahead of its release. David Fincher’s adaptation of Gillian Flynn‘s 2012 novel has ignited a firestorm of media frenzy, and with reason: It’s easily one of the best films of the year. With that said, everyone wants to know: Should I read this book before it comes out? How does it translate on screen? Ben Affleck?? Yes, the answer to all of those questions is yes. We’ll explain by breaking down the film into five handy talking points.

You don’t need to read the book to appreciate the film

gonegirl4

Let’s just start with this — although spoilery — it’s hard to talk about this film without addressing the polarizing book. As someone who finished the novel only 48 hours before seeing the theatrical version, I will argue no. While watching the film, which craves every twist and turn, I found myself second-guessing the evidence rather than wondering what was going to happen next. “What about clue number 4?” “That’s where they found the club?” “But wait, what about the ottoman that was such a big deal in the book?” All those questions are pointless and a distraction from completely immersing yourself in this scary dissolution of a marriage.

Things are streamlined, making the story work more on film rather than in a book — where there’s room to breathe and over-think the tiniest of details. What happens on screen is a snappy, less-Law and Order referential version of the novel. Trust me: It’s a good thing.

It’s funny — like really, really “laugh out loud” funny

gonegirl1

While the book is also snappy and referential, it’s never really funny. Sure, a story about a broken marriage and a missing woman is not ripe for laughter, but there was never an opportunity to relieve all that tension — especially considering how dark the story can get. What happens on screen is a wonderfully twisted narrative that allows fans to snicker and gasp at what’s unfolding in theaters. The comedic timing is effectively used to let go of some of the graphic drama while sucking fans in to the demented nature of Rosamund Pike’s character, Amy Elliott Dunne.

Rosamund Pike is going to be a star

gonegirl3

The film is broken up into three parts, the first being the journey of Nick Dunne (Affleck) immediately following the disappearance of his wife. But it’s what happens later is the backstory that allows Pike to shine. The actress embodies the conflicted nature of a disillusioned wife trying to piece together her failing marriage. At times she’s chilling, scary, even haunting — with her porcelain skin and severe blonde bob — and then she’s warm, inviting, and drawing you in, making you unaware that there was ever a problem in the first place.

Amanda Bynes Arrested On DUI Charge

Amanda Bynes

Former child star Amanda Bynes has been lying low for months, seemingly getting her life together after erratic behavior made her infamous last year. But now, she’s veered away from stability with a DUI arrest over the weekend.

According to TMZ, the troubled actress caused suspicion when she stopped her Mercedes SUV in the center of an intersection early Sunday morning. California Highway Patrol officers believed she was inebriated and arrested her. Bynes was charged with a misdemeanor DUI, posted ,000 bail, and was free by the afternoon.

The string of incidents that first concerned fans culminated in a psychiatric hold in July 2013. Below is a video of the actress acting strangely in New York City, before she got the help she sorely needed.

Why Lost Fans Should Watch Once Upon a Time

oncemain

With the premiere of Lost celebrating its 10th anniversary, it’s a stark reminder that no show has been able to truly capture that same frenzied passion. From the memorable characters to its unique style of storytelling, Lost gave TV viewers something fresh and interesting to watch week after week. And in its absence, Once Upon a Time is the best option to fill the void left by flight 815.

While Once Upon a Time has received a lot of attention for its Frozen arc that kicked off season four, we see it as our connection to a series we’re still not finished gushing about. Nothing will replace the brilliant series, but thanks to a number of shared actors and writers, ABC’s fairy tale drama is the best thing to watch to fill those Lost cravings. Here’s why:

Dual Narratives

once5

One of the most compelling elements on Lost was the use of flashbacks to tell the stories of the characters that crash-landed on the island. Eventually the flashbacks caught up to the present timeline, and the show then flipped things on its head with flash forwards and flash sidways worlds. This made things a bit confusing at times, but it also allowed the show to explore its characters in deeper ways than what was available to them on the remote island. Similarly, on Once Upon a Time, the story plays out in two worlds: the “real world,” where fairy tale characters live but were stripped of their original memories, and “storybook world,” which allows viewers to explore those characters’ pasts. Like Lost, the show plays out like a giant puzzle, with each character’s piece eventually fitting into place.

The Show’s Creators, Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz

once1

It should come as no surprise that Lost’s DNA finds its way into Once Upon a Time because the latter was created by two of former Lost writers. Both OUAT‘s Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz wrote a number of episodes together, including one of the series’ most poignant deaths in season three’s “Greatest Hits.”

Overlapping Actors

once2

While a number of Lost’s stars have gone on to do other series — most notably Michael Emerson, the star of Person of Interest, and Daniel Dae Kim who plays Detective Chin Ho Kelly on Hawaii Five-0 — many have had major or recurring roles on Once Upon a Time. Emile de Ravin (pictured), who played Claire on Lost, joined Once as Belle while Lana Parrilla, who plays the Evil Queen, appeared on two Lost episodes as Greta. Rebecca Mader, who played the ill-fated Charlotte on Lost, had a recurring role as the Wicked Witch in OUAT season three, and Alan Dale, the evil Charles Widmore, was King George in the first two seasons. Elizabeth Mitchell, one of the Others known as Juliet, is joining the show this season as the Snow Queen. Meanwhile, Naveen Andrews (Lost‘s Sayid) played Jafar in the spin-off, Once Upon a Time In Wonderland, but the show was canceled after 13 episodes. The actor has not yet made an appearance on the original series.

Easter Eggs

once3

While the actors and creators are some of the more obvious ties between the two shows, it’s the clues left behind for fans that are the most fun to discover. Among the many items that exist in both universes: Apollo candy bars, two of the airlines (Ajira and Oceanic), and the popular fictional TV series, Expose, which starred Nikki Fernandez (Kiele Sanchez) before she crashed on the island. Of course there are a number of more subtle references to the series, all cataloged by fans here.

Once Upon a Time airs on Sundays at 8 pm ET on ABC.

North West

North West


North West is obviously a mini fashionista. She joined parents Kim Kardashian and Kanye West at the Givenchy and Balenciaga fashion shows at Paris Fashion Week, and even got a coveted front row seat all to herself. Today, Kim shared a family photo from the Givenchy show picturing her and her mini-me dressed in similar sheer outfits. (Kim also posted a photo of hubby Kanye getting a bit touchy on Saturday, because Paris is for lovers?)

In more serious news, Jennifer Lopez and Leah Remini were rear-ended by an alleged drunk driver as they drove through Malibu over the weekend. Thankfully no one in the car was injured. Check out the pic they shared to Instagram before the incident occurred.

Katy Perry has dyed her hair yet again. The songstress poked fun at her new fire-engine red ‘do by posting a side by side image of her and the Muppet drummer, Animal. Victoria Justice also shared a LOL-worthy post in which she starred in her own scene from Alfred Hitchcock‘s The Birds. See all that and more photos you may have missed on Instagram in the gallery above.
