Simone Biles is the best in the world at artistic gymnastics, but how will she be on Freeform? After winning a gold in the individual all-around yesterday, Biles got a message from Marlene King, showrunner of Pretty Little Liars, one of Biles’s favorite TV shows. “Hey Simone! I heard you’re a big PLL fan. Well, we are huge fans of yours and everybody there,” King said in a video. “We’re so proud of what you’re doing in Rio. The Final Five, we love it. Come see us as soon as you get home, and bring your friends.” “YES X27238833,” Biles tweeted in response, which seems like a step in the right direction. … [Read more...] about Simone Biles Was Invited to the

That sounds complicated but plays very simply, and then it’s seven years later and Vikander’s Lara is getting herself smashed in a boxing-cum-wrestling ring by a larger opponent. Lara drags herself off the canvas and we learn that she hasn’t paid her club dues — she’s poor, even though she could collect her father’s fortune but won’t because it would mean she’d have to acknowledge he’s dead instead of missing-and-presumed.

You need to sit somewhere else.” He told me later, “I don’t look old enough to play your father and if you sat next to me, they’d see that I wasn’t old enough to play your father and they’d fire me.” But actually 15 isn’t far stretch from where I come from to have kids.
