7 Romantic Moments That Would Never Happen In Real Life

One of the reasons we swoon over Prince Charming in a romantic comedy movie is that we get to live what we would never otherwise experience in our lives. We tear up at love declarations and laugh at their inside jokes and root for the good guy because we’ll never get to live such a cheesy romantic story. And maybe there’s a good reason for that. Here are 7 romantic moments that would never happen in real life and are only worth enjoying in a movie. It’s all about showing up in the nick of time, taking a leap of faith when all the odds are against them ¬†and just a lot of love.

1. Showing up at the last minute

7 Romantic Moments That Would Never Happen In Real Life

And delivering a heart melting, life changing, poetry like love declaration. And not only will this love declaration bring back the person you love, or snatch them from their evil partner, it will also make everything ok. The Sun will shine again, you’ll go to bed on time and wake up early to work out and make your significant other breakfast. Down here, in the real world, you end up crying on the kitchen floor.

2. Still look good while making out in the rain

7 Romantic Moments That Would Never Happen In Real Life

We all love a good make out in the rain. That is, in the movies. Where all your make up stays intact and your mascara doesn’t start running down your chicks that are no longer covered in blush. And where your hair doesn’t get all frizzy, still looking good with two random locks of hair stuck to your forehead. Totally unstaged!

3. All you have to do is take off your glasses

7 Romantic Moments That Would Never Happen In Real Life

All of a sudden everyone will be dying to be your friend, you’ll go to parties every night and your life will never be the same as before. With the messages Hollywood is putting out there, it’s no wonder kids nowadays don’t want to wear glasses anymore.

4. Falling for the person you hate

7 Romantic Moments That Would Never Happen In Real Life

It’s pretty difficult to imagine two people that hate each other falling head over heels in love all of a sudden. What happened to the things you strongly disliked about this other person? Did their qualities overwhelmed you all of a sudden? If you were feeling compelled to hook up because you’re young and attractive looking, listen: there’s no pressure, you don’t have to fall in love with each other.

5. Stumbling over your soulmate when you’re shopping for gloves

7 Romantic Moments That Would Never Happen In Real Life

I could go shopping for gloves seven times (magic number there!) every day for the next seven years, and not only during winter and I doubt I’ll happen to find my future significant other just waiting there waiting for me with a pair of kid gloves and killer haircut. Stop setting high expectations, Hollywood, we all know the only way to find a partner nowadays is on OkCupid.

6. Pretending to be someone else

7 Romantic Moments That Would Never Happen In Real Life

And when the other finds out, everything is cool, they’re still available and ready to spend the rest of their¬†days with you. Are you actually engaged and you’re flirting with other women? Ah, no biggie. Have you been planning your wedding for two years and now you got cold feet so you’re having an affair with another guy? Pff, so what, happens to all of us.

7. Giving someone an ultimatum

7 Romantic Moments That Would Never Happen In Real Life

And having your ultimatum met by that special someone. Come on, let’s face it, when’s the last time this happened to you in real life? People don’t change over night and metamorphose in the best lover ever. That only happens in romantic comedies. And boy, are we happy for them! For a second there, their happiness is our happiness. And they live happily ever after. The end!

Insane Things About The Terminator Series

With five Terminator movies (The Terminator,¬†1984;¬†Judgment Day, 1991;¬†Rise of the Machines, 2003;¬†Salvation, 2009; Genisys, 2015), one TV series (The Sarah Connor Chronicles), one novel (T2 trilogy) and a lot of¬†comic books,¬†Schwarzenegger’s “I’ll be back!” seems hauntingly true. The Terminator franchise doesn’t seem to run out of ideas. In fact, they have been sticking to the same idea for the past thirty years, and it’s been working just fine for them. I’m just curious to see what happens when they run out of Terminator. With the latest movie release doing pretty well in the box office, let’s¬†look at some insane things about the Terminator series that you probably never heard or though about.

1. Not much of a talker

Insane Things About The Terminator Series

Arnold Schwarzenegger will remain known for being a man of a few words. And that is not an understatement. In fact, the first Terminator movie from 1984 introduced us to a quiet robot from the future who only had 18 lines to utter. That amounts to less than one hundred words! Bearing in mind Schwarzenegger cashed $750,000 for that movie, that means he received $7,500 per word. Not too shabby for a franchise debut.

2. O.J. Simpson was considered for playing the Terminator

Insane Things About The Terminator Series

Back in the 80s Mike Medavoy, the chief of Orion Pictures, thought of the Terminator as an athletic hero that could run and jump everywhere. So he set his heart on O.J. Simpson, casting Arnold Schwarzenegger as Kyle Reese, the human soldier from the future. In hindsight, this became one of the biggest ironies: James Cameron rejected Simpson because he seemed too nice.

3. The franchise cannot figure out time travel

Insane Things About The Terminator Series

It’s not worth hiding we were all left feeling very confused by each of the Terminator movies. Between Kyle Reese becoming John Connor’s father and stopping future killing devices by sending someone to deal with them in the past, you might get a slight headache while munching on your popcorn. The predestination paradox explains it all, but that’s not good news for the good guys: without Skynet, there wouldn’t have been a Kyle Reese going back in time, which would’ve meant John Connor never got born.

4. Linda Hamilton Suffered For Terminator 2

Insane Things About The Terminator Series

Hamilton not only worked out three hours a day for an entire year in order to look good on screen, but she was also able to perform her own stunts in the movie.  She even received automatic weapons training from Uzi Gaz, who was an Israeli former commando. All went well until one day she forgot to wear earplugs for an elevator scene and she was deafened when shotguns begun firing. She suffered partial deafness in one year and shell shock. She never seemed to regret all the time she spent in the gym, biking, doing aerobics and learning judo. With a dark sense of humor, when asked whether she suffered any mental damage after filming, she replied that she had, but only from her marriage with the Terminator.

5. Terminator: Genisys sent Nike back in time

Insane Things About The Terminator Series

Costume designer Susan Matheson had a difficult job for¬†Terminator: Genisys.¬†She had to make sure Kyle Reese looked similar to¬†Michael Biehn, which meant a full 80s outfit. And here’s where the plot thickens: Nike is no longer making the Vandals that appeared in the first Terminator movie. So they suggested Matheson to design a new pair based on their new Air Force Ones. The costume designer bluntly refused, arguing real fans will notice the difference and insisted Nike create the exact replicas. And, surprise, surprise, Nike did just that. The 80s replicas pulled Reese’s whole outfit together and didn’t disappoint Susan Matheson, who called the whole episode her greatest moment on the film.

Disney Movies That Should Actually Exist

There aren’t many things that are better than a Disney movie. That mainly because of the awesome supporting characters. Just picture this: a prequel all about Mulan’s grandmother. And yes, it would come with all the sass the granny has, but in the form of a hilarious teenager. Or maybe you’re curious about what really happens to the Genie after he is set free. I know I am dying to find out and I would chew my fingernails from the moment they’d announce the movie release till I could go see it in a theater. Enough beating around the bush, let’s take a look at the Disney movies that should actually exist.

1. Boo from Monsters, Inc.

Disney Movies That Should Actually Exist

We all fell head over heels with¬†the two year old from “Monsters, Inc.” rooting for her to be saved and brought back home safe and sound. And now imagine what it would be like to follow Boo through her teenage years. Would she turn goth or become a cheerleader? Either way, we would all be holding our breath for her possible reunion with Sulley.

2. Ursula from The Little Mermaid

Disney Movies That Should Actually Exist

We don’t know that much about Ursula, which means anything would be possible in a hypothetical prequel. There are so many questions to be answered. Why is she no longer allowed in the kingdom? What happened to her before she was banished? Come on, Disney, let you writers take the reins of this one and prove to everyone Ursula was not always a villain, and that deep down she’s all kindness and generosity.

3. Fairy Godmother from Cinderella

Disney Movies That Should Actually Exist

Cinderella can’t possibly be the only one to need the help of the Fairy Godmother, am I right? So wouldn’t it be awesome if we could see whom she helps next? It could be a character we’re already familiar with, or a completely new one. We’re open to suggestions, as long as we get to find out what’s up with the Godmother’s mysterious appearance and how come she can lend a helping hand to good people?

4. The Beast from Beauty and the Beast

Disney Movies That Should Actually Exist

I can’t be the only one dying to see the backstory here. Imagine the poster for “Beast and the Beauty”. We would finally get the chance to see more of this intriguing character, what he went through and how he got where he is.

5. The mice from Cinderella

Disney Movies That Should Actually Exist

But really, any mice Disney movie would do. There can be so many adventures to be had and so many funny and ridiculous situations to go through. Also, there should be cheese involved.

6. The Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland

Disney Movies That Should Actually Exist

This would be a deliciously insane prequel. Although I would like to insist Helena Bonham Carter be given a role in this one. Going back to the Mad Hatter, the possibilities are limitless here as well. You can build a lot around “we’re all mad here”. Let’s see, was he always “special” or was he once small and innocent like Alice?

7. Hades from Hercules

Disney Movies That Should Actually Exist

Who wouldn’t want to watch a movie all about the lord of the dead? Here’s a suggestion, Disney. Hades could be up there mingling with la cr√®me de la cr√®me¬†and secretly conspiring to overthrow Zeus from power.

8. Pegasus from Hercules

Disney Movies That Should Actually Exist

I’m aware Pegasus didn’t possess the gift of the gab, but “Wall-E” already set a precedent for these kinds of characters. Wouldn’t you be curious to see what he was up to while Hercules was busy growing up? I would buy myself and five other friends a ticket right now.

And since celebrities are people too, they have their share of pictures they’re not particularly proud of. Take a look at these 8 celebrities you won’t recognize as teens.

8 Celebrities You Won't Recognize As Teens

Before becoming an actress, filmmaker and humanitarian, Angelina Jolie was once a young student. She now holds the title of Hollywood’s best paid actress, and it’s no secret she earns anywhere between ten to fifteen million dollars per movie. She broke the ice and became famous wide world in 2001 with “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” and since then she played a wide variety of roles, from badass chicks to vulnerable mothers.

During his acting career he received a Golden Globe Award and was nominated for the Academy Award three times.

8 Celebrities You Won't Recognize As Teens

This might be a difficult one, but can you guess who that is? Three times Golden Globe Award winner and two times Academy award winner, George Clooney was no stranger to unflattering haircuts or glasses. But he looks like an optimistic kid. Maybe he knew what was in store for him. He became widely successful with “Ocean’s Eleven” and then his career just took off.

8 Celebrities You Won't Recognize As Teens

Yes, Johnny Depp rocked the bad boy attitude straight out of high school. The 52 year old actor, producer and musician was first introduced to the American audiences through the TV show “21 Jump Street”, which transformed him into a teen idol overnight. “Edward Scissorhands” quickly established him as a pretty boy and from there on he got bigger roles and fatter pay checks.

8 Celebrities You Won't Recognize As Teens

The best paid actor of 2015, Robert Downey Jr looks dashing in this photo of him as a young man. Despite struggling with drug and alcohol addiction in his youth, he managed to keep himself afloat with the help of his family and friends. Even more, he became extremely famous playing roles like Iron Man and Sherlock Holmes.

8 Celebrities You Won't Recognize As Teens

Any idea who this kid playing¬†a video game in his room is? Here’s a hint: the poster on his wall is actually a film he starred in, besides “The Dark Knight’ and “The Machinist”, of course. If you guessed Christian Bale, you’re right. The English actor first received great critical acclaim for his role in “American Psycho”. Since then he’s appeared both in blockbusters and smaller, independent films.

8 Celebrities You Won't Recognize As Teens

Best known for her roles in “Fight Club”, “The King’s speech” and all the other Tim Burton movies, Helena Bonham Carter is a¬†two time Academy Award nominee.

She was the perfect choice for¬†¬†“Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street”, “Alice in Wonderland”, and “Dark Shadows”.

8 Celebrities You Won't Recognize As Teens

If you’re not a fan of “Boardwalk Empire”, this one might be tricky for you. Steve Buscemi is an actor, director and writer who played in five movies of the Cohen brothers.

5 Comics’ Moments The Walking Dead Won’t Use

If you’ve ever watched “The Walking Dead” you know they’re not shy with the amounts of blood they use. And if you’re never watched the show, here’s how it goes: there’s a¬†scene that involves someone being eaten alive every five minutes. And as scary and gory as¬†that sounds, it’s pretty addictive.¬†After I discovered “The Walking Dead”, I went through the first three seasons in a week, barely leaving the house. I was so hooked on the whole post apocalyptic zombie world, I would then startle on my way to the grocery shop when a twig would snap and I kept looking over my shoulder to check for walkers. But how much is too much for this TV series? They seem to enjoy killing off all their characters, so we can’t help but expect another Red Wedding. We took a look at the comic books and shook our heads at some scenes. Read about the gory 5¬†comics’ moments the Walking Dead won’t use. Hopefully.

5. The Unique Way Out

5 Comics' Moments The Walking Dead Won't Use

Carol is probably the character who has grown the most from the beginning of the show. If we were introduced to her when she was a victim of domestic violence, we witnessed how¬†her skin grew thicker when she lost her girl. She became a fierce fighter who never hesitates to kill. But the comic books tell the story of a different Carol. She’s much younger and yearns to be accepted and loved. When she is rejected, she kills herself by allowing a tied up zombie to eat her alive. Phew! We’re all glad Carol’s still on the show and we hope she won’t willingly hug any walkers too soon.

4. A Jamie Lannister Touch

5 Comics' Moments The Walking Dead Won't Use

In the comic books, the whole Governor situations plays out differently. He is still the bad guy and Rick is still the badass hero. But the Governor is crueler than his TV equivalent and cuts off Rick’s hand, in an attempt to make him understand neither him or anyone else is safe in the big wild world. On the other hand¬†on the TV series, Rick is safe and sound and can still do up his laces in a few seconds. Did “The Walking Dead” producers get cold feet about maiming the main character? Still, even if they didn’t pull a George R. R. Martin until now, it doesn’t mean it’s never going to happen. As much as we all like seeing Rick intact, he might get bitten by a walker and he has a handful¬†of enemies who would like to teach him some manners and chop off his arm.

3. A Different Kind of Boyhood

5 Comics' Moments The Walking Dead Won't Use

Has anyone else noticed how good Carl Grimes is getting on screen? Thankfully, he overcame his teenage, moody phase and is now on his path to manhood. He has some amazing zombie killing skills and he’s not whining that much anymore. Can we start cheering for even more character development? Listen to this: in the comic books, after Alexandria is attacked by a humongous herd of walker, Carl is shot in the head and loses a big chunk of his face. Would the directors venture to put this in the show? Only time will tell.

2.  Playing Baseball with Glenn

5 Comics' Moments The Walking Dead Won't Use

In the comics the wickedest villain is The Saviors’ leader who wields a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire. That sounds pretty Mephistophelic. And there’s more! He uses his custom made weapon to kill Glenn, a much loved character whom we all¬†cheer foor whenever he fights with someone. Will this be Glenn’s fate on screen as well? Or can we expect “The Walking Dead” to subvert our expectations and kill Maggie instead? Either way, I’m already getting sad.

1. Hush, little baby, don’t you cry

5 Comics' Moments The Walking Dead Won't Use

We all regretted Lori’s death after giving birth to Judith, leaving Carl an orphan and Rick a widower. In fact, we should all be happy we didn’t get to see what¬†the comic books¬†did with the whole scene. In the comics, the Governor wins the battle at Woodbury and everyone is running in all directions. Including Lori, tightly holding her new born in her arms. But when the mother is shot from behind, she falls forward and dies on the spot, smothering her baby girl underneath her. We can see why the producers didn’t insist on putting that in the show, giving Judith a chance at life, even though the zombie world in which she was born is ruthless.
