- Page 1

It seemed like Josh Hartnett was in every movie in the early 2000s, but now it's hard remember the last movie you saw him in.

I've Only Just Realized All Disney Princesses Are Missing A Body Part And I'm Bothered

During my childhood, there was never a moment I didn't wish I was a Disney princess.
