    "Captain America: Civil War" asks the question, "Whose side are you on?" But now that footage for the film has finally been revealed, everyone is so excited that we're wondering, "Does it even matter?"


    Anthony Mackie and Chris Evans surprised fans at Disney's D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, over the weekend, revealing a first look at the next big installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: 



    Unfortunately, Disney hasn't released the footage to the public yet, despite a bunch of apparently fake trailers already hitting the Internet. But according to EW, here's what you have to look forward to:



    • The footage opens with a fight between the new Avengers and Crossbones. Crossbones gets in some hits on Captain America. But c'mon. He's the Cap. The Avengers end up winning the fight.

    • There's a moment similar to the post-credit scene of "Ant-Man," with the Winter Soldier, aka Bucky, and Captain America getting all sentimental.

    • We get a hint of the conflict between Iron Man and Cap, with Tony Stark saying, "Sometimes I want to punch you in your perfect teeth."

    • Next comes flashing shots of various superheroes. The Vision is in street clothes, and Chadwick Boseman debuts as Black Panther.

    • After some shots of "powerful beings" running at each other, the footage ends with Ant-Man geeking out after meeting Cap.


    The official teaser for the film is reportedly getting released in November, but since it technically already made its debut, we're hoping Disney decides to unveil it early. 


    Seriously, Disney. Our favorite superheroes are at war. Just cut us a break already.


    "Captain America: Civil War" hits theaters May 6, 2016.

    "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" just got the right amount of leverage. 


    Orlando Bloom will officially reprise his role as Will Turner in the upcoming "Pirates" installment, Disney announced at its D23 Expo over the weekend. The crowd at the expo reportedly burst into cheers after hearing the news, though an appearance by Johnny Depp on stage as Captain Jack Sparrow probably also helped their enthusiasm.


    Adding to the excitement, Disney released the official title card for the film along with an opening date: 





    Original cast member Geoffrey Rush is also reportedly set to return as Captain Barbossa in the film, but there's no word yet on if Keira Knightley will reprise her role as Elizabeth Swann. The last we heard, it wasn't looking good, but listen to me. Listen! Even if the worst should happen, and Knightley doesn't make an appearance, at least we still have her epic speech from "Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World's End."


    Gentlemen... hoist the colors!

    Imagine the level of talent, determination, grit, resolve and ambition it must take to succeed in the movie industry. The competition is stifling. You are not backed by a fancy degree. You don't have the money to buy your way into the business. Nope. The only thing you have is an intense burning desire to make movies and enough of a WHY at home to figure out some way to make money doing it. This is the story of Aaron Kaufman. He is a self-made movie producer/director success story. He came from modest means and worked his way up the ranks in film animation and production. Now he's building his own directorial empire and the foundation of his new empire is his directorial debut movie which will hit theaters in quarter two of 2016, Urge.

    Urge, a thriller starring Pierce Brosnan, Danny Masterson (That 70s Show), Ashley Greene (Twilight), and Alexis Knapp (Pitch Perfect 2), features a group of friends who head out on an island vacation. While there they experiment with a new designer drug called Urge. The drug, if taken more than once, diminishes one's ability to control destructive urges like sex and violence. How long does it take for society to crumble? Can Urge be stopped once it's started? The movie is co-written by Kaufman, and having been privy to a sneak peak, I can only promise that you will be riveted to your seat. The storyline, characters and music come together to create a magnificent motion picture masterpiece, the likes of which nobody has pulled off since Silence of the Lambs.

    Having spent time with Aaron in his N.Y.C. editing studio, and having listened to his story, all I can say is that 20 years ago his big dream of producing and directing movies, seemed improbable. Yet, he's made it. His movie producer fingerprints have touched dozens of movies, and now he's out on his own living his big dream, directing his first major motion picture for the big screen. Here is Aaron Kaufman's advice for accomplishing big screen dreams.

    The Best Stuff: According to Aaron, his number one piece of advice for anyone who wants to make it in the movie industry (or in any industry for that matter) is to be true to yourself. You make magic happen in the movies by doing creative work that inspires you. Too often, people get into the movie industry and they start looking around to see what everyone else is creating and then they copy that blueprint. This strategy never works. "I can't make a David Fincher movie, ever. I am not David Fincher. But there's a lot of people out there trying to make David Fincher movies." Aaron says that the time he has spent working on movies with greats like Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino has taught him to focus on his own passion for movies without paying attention to what others are doing out in the field. "Focusing on what everyone else is doing is the same as commoditizing the industry. Focusing on what works for others does not create art." It is for this reason, Aaron's directorial debut, Urge, is a movie co-written by him. It's his vision, his focus, his own art.

    Learning The Industry: Aaron's path in the movie industry is different than most. He didn't go to film school, then intern, then get a job in movies. At 21 years old he was getting married while getting his feet wet in film through his own animation studio, doing work for the likes of MTV and Nickelodeon. As the internet took over society, so did it take over his business, where at the height of his business he was doing more animation work that companies would use online than on film, so he sold his business and started throwing feelers out into the film world. Aaron says that the best thing any budding artist or entrepreneur can do for his career is to become a Jack of All Trades within the industry. By doing so, it makes you a valuable commodity because firms will hire you for one main job because you can do all the jobs. Aaron's belief is that the best way to learn anything is to jump into it. Mistakes will happen, but that's where growth takes place. Aaron says that he's very thankful to have started his family at such a young age, because when there are little mouths at home waiting to be fed, it forces you to get outside your comfort zone to do things you would put off doing under other circumstances. His need to make a living forced him to take any and all jobs he could get within the industry, and it forced him to push himself to reach for bigger and better opportunities along the way. He says that stress can be an awesome motivator.

    Mistakes: I asked Aaron if he's made any mistakes along the way. He says his biggest mistake was in waiting to go after his huge dream of becoming a director. "Being a movie producer for 15 years was great. I loved it. But being a producer is like dating a girl you really like, but always dropping her off at someone else's house at the end of the night. Directors get to do the fun stuff." Aaron says that in any business, it's really easy to let years go by as you coast along on your excuses. He says that you can invent one million reasons why it's a bad idea to do something right now, but then you wake up 15 years later and realize all of them were just stupid excuses which prevented you from realizing your dream. Aaron says that what he learned from waiting so long is that when you are really passionate about something, when there's this burning itch you cannot stifle, go after it. Do it now.

    Taste Before Skill: Aaron says that one of the most important lessons he has learned was from Ira Glass, host of This American Life on NPR. Says Ira, "Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, and I really wish somebody had told this to me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But it's like there is this gap. For the first couple years that you're making stuff, what you're making isn't so good. It's not that great. It's trying to be good, it has ambition to be good, but it's not that good. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is good enough that you can tell that what you're making is kind of a disappointment to you. A lot of people never get past that phase. They quit. Everybody I know who does interesting, creative work they went through years where they had really good taste and they could tell that what they were making wasn't as good as they wanted it to be. They knew it fell short. Everybody goes through that. And if you are just starting out or if you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Do a huge volume of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week or every month you know you're going to finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you're going to catch up and close that gap. And the work you're making will be as good as your ambitions. I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I've ever met. It takes awhile. It's gonna take you a while. It's normal to take a while. You just have to fight your way through that." Aaron says that this advice has been absolutely critical in his journey as a movie producer and director. He says that over his lifetime he's acquired a taste for finely produced and directed movies. It takes a long time to close the gap between what you know is a great movie and your output. For example, when Aaron finished the first draft of his screenplay for Urge, he was on the one hand excited it was done, but on the other hand felt like it was shit. Aaron says you cannot compare your taste to your skills at the start of the project. Over time, your taste and your skills were merge as one, but it takes a lot of time.

    Mentors: Aaron says that he's created a habit of finding mentors in the industry to learn from. In his younger years, Aaron found out that Roger Smith, COO of Warner Brothers, lived nearby. Aaron, anxious to learn about the movie business, reached out to him. Smith didn't respond. So, Aaron kept calling and writing until one day, Smith agreed to meet him for lunch. They met at Café De Artist for lunch and that was the start of a lifelong friendship that offered one of kind insight into the business that Aaron could never have received in film school. In fact, most of his career has been the result of reaching out and asking questions from greats who have paved the way before him, including Roger Smith, Robert Rodriguez, Quentin Tarantino, Sydney Lumet and Chris Blackwell. Aaron says that it would take many lifetimes to navigate the movie industry alone, hence it's an industry rife with broken dreams. The only way to make it in the big screen business, and probably any business, is to get in front of those who have already forged the journey before you to find out the roadblocks, shortcuts, and rest areas along the way.

    Urge will hit the big screen in the spring of 2016. Having seen the trailer and having spent an evening with Aaron, there's one thing for certain; Aaron Kaufman has made his big screen dreams come true.

    In case you needed proof that Victoria Justice and Nina Dobrev are two different people, both actresses were in the same place at the same time at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday Night. 


    Justice, 22, presented Dobrev, 26, with the award for Choice TV Actress, Sci-Fi/Fantasy for her role on "The Vampire Diaries,"and introduced her as "my doppelgänger, Nina Dobrev." 






    Dobrev hugged her lookalike, and after removing an oversized pair of fangs from her mouth, she gave an emotional speech thanking fans for the award. 


    “As this chapter of my life comes to an end, I look back on it with a grateful heart and a big smile," she told the crowd. “Just like my character Elena, I started this show as a young girl. … These were six incredible years I’ve had the pleasure of spending with all of you guys.”





    Dobrev announced in April that she would be leaving "The Vampire Diaries" after the show's Season 6 finale in May

    The 2015 Teen Choice Awards was a truly Spear-itual experience for Britney fans, as the pop princess scored yet another surfboard to add to her collection. Spears was awarded the Candie's Style Icon award at the show, and while her outfit wasn't as iconic as the denim dress, she still totally looked the part of a fashionista.  The "Pretty Girls" singer turned every head in a plunging, cut-out Mikael D dress complete with sparkles, which complimented her new rainbow 'do: 



    To add to the cuteness of it all, the proud mama also brought her sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, and her niece Lexie, for the big night out:




    "Fashion has always been something I love to experiment with," Spears said on stage after accepting the award. "To all the teens out there watching, be fearless in your choices and don't be afraid to be yourself."


    Yay Britney! Without you, we never would have gotten dangerously creative with our school uniforms or ever seriously considered purchasing a red leather catsuit.

    As the daughter of a famous actor and a beautiful socialite, Jane Fonda grew up accustomed to all that came along with celebrity -- both the public interest and scrutiny. Many were fascinated by her father and mother, Henry Fonda and Frances Ford Seymour, but despite the bright spotlight on her family, there were certain things of which a young Jane was completely unaware. Namely, her parents' troubled relationship and her mother's suicide.


    When Jane was 11 years old, her father asked her mother for a divorce. Frances, who reportedly struggled with depression, ended up in a mental institution in the months that followed. All Jane knew was that her mother was "away."


    One day, Frances returned to the house briefly with a nurse. As Jane told "Oprah's Master Class," she was playing jacks upstairs with her brother, Peter, at the time. Jane was called downstairs to see her mother, but refused. She would never see her again.



    Jane says she later found out that Frances had retrieved a razor from the home and slit her own throat in the mental institution on her 42nd birthday. Though Frances committed suicide, Jane was told that she'd died of a heart attack. Jane soon learned the truth from a magazine.


    "A year after my mother died, I was in study hall and a girlfriend passed me a movie magazine, in which it said that my mother had cut her throat," Jane says in the above video.


    The information was devastating to the young teen. "I thought, if I had gone downstairs and seen her that day that she came to the house, then she wouldn't have killed herself," Jane says. "It was my fault."


    Jane carried this guilt with her for many years. Then, as an adult, she learned even more details that shed light on her mother's struggles. "I got the records from the institution where my mother killed herself. It was a big packet. I remember when it arrived -- I started to shake. I got in bed, I was so cold. I started reading it," Jane recalls.


    In the midst of pages and pages of reports from the medical staff was a typed section of pages with handwritten notes in the margins. Within these pages was another devastating secret.


    "One of the most important things that I learned is that [my mother] had been sexually abused," Jane says tearfully. "Everything fell into place."


    With this new information, Jane felt her tough exterior soften. "I wanted to take her in my arms and tell her how sorry I was, that I understood why it had been the way it was," she says.


    Along with finding compassion and sympathy for her mother, Jane also stopped blaming herself for her mother's suicide all those years earlier.


    "I was able to forgive myself," Jane says softly. "It had nothing to do with me."

    "Oprah's Master Class" returns for its fifth season on Sunday, Oct. 25, at 8 p.m. ET. Upcoming masters include Ellen DeGeneres, Robert Duvall, Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson, Smokey Robinson, Jeff Bridges, James Taylor and Patti LaBelle.

    Kylie Jenner turned 18 on Aug. 10, but as of Sunday, she still wasn't finished celebrating her milestone birthday. 


    The reality star and Snapchat queen partied with what looked like thousands at Beachclub in the city of Montreal in Québec, Canada, where she partook in the province's legal drinking age of, you guessed it, 18.  


    Jenner also reportedly took home a cool $100,000 for attending the event -- and knowing what we know about celebrity club appearances, we don't doubt that for a second. 


    Not a bad way to spend (the week after) your 18th birthday.

    We didn't think it was possible to love Gina Rodriguez more than we already do, but then she went and surprised us all with her serious rap skills at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday.


    The 31-year-old actress, who took on co-hosting duties with Ludacris and Josh Peck, showed off her talent during the opening segment. As the trio debated how to split up the categories, Peck suggested Luda stick to the music awards, but Rodriguez interrupted, "Hold on one second. I mean, I know how to rap, too." 


    Surprised, the "Beast Mode" artist held the actress to her word. 


    "I mean, you have a microphone in your hand," he said. "I gotta call you out." 


    Like a total boss, the Golden Globe winner happily accepted the challenge. And what's best, she started spitting Luda's own verse from DJ Khaled's 2010 hit song, "All I Do Is Win." And she nailed it. 


    Just watch and see for yourself.

    Maisie Williams recently filmed her first sex scene, but don't worry, it wasn't for "Game of Thrones."


    In the 18-year-old actress' new indie drama "The Falling," a mysterious fainting spell breaks out at an all-girls school in 1969. Williams' Lydia is intent on getting answers, even if it means scolding her teachers and fighting the system. But "The Falling" doesn't just mark a deviation from her beloved Stark character, it also required Williams to film her first sex scene.


    "It was extremely awkward!" the actress told Vulture in a recent interview. Luckily Williams' co-star Joe Cole was understanding. "We went out for a couple of lunches and stuff just to get to know each other," she said of Cole, "and we had days of rehearsal where we'd get to know our characters and spend a couple of hours with each other." By the time they filmed the scene, Williams said the two actors got along pretty well. 


    Williams also told the website that while filming both "The Falling" and her recent stint on "Doctor Who," she would threaten the casts with "Game of Thrones" spoilers if anyone "would wind [her] up." The actress is already back on the set of "GoT" Season 6, where she's been suffering with severe eye bruising from blind contacts. (Remember, Arya went blind at the end of Season 5 and is seemingly still going to be blind in Season 6.) Check out the trailer for "The Falling," which you can stream on VOD to hold you over until "GoT" returns.

    Screaming with style.  


    Bella Thorne turned heads at the Teen Choice Awards Sunday night in a super-short Balmain minidress from the label's Resort 2016 collection.



    The orange and tan patterned dress verged on being too short, but paired with nude, strappy sandals that elongated her already long legs, the 17-year-old pulled it off in a classy, age-appropriate way. 


    Thorne took home the Best Villain surfboard for her role in "The Duff." We're going to go ahead and say she won for best dressed, too.

    Different is beautiful.


    That was the message Ellen DeGeneres chose to share when she took the stage at the Teen Choice Awards Sunday to accept the award for Choice Comedian. The 57-year-old, who was celebrating her seventh wedding anniversary to wife Portia de Rossi that night, used the moment to empower those who may feel like they don't fit in


    "It feels good to be chosen, but there was a time in my life that I was not chosen," DeGeneres told the crowd at the USC Galen Center in Los Angeles. "I was the opposite of chosen, because I was different. And I think I want to make sure that everyone knows that what makes you different right now makes you stand out later in life. So you should be proud of being different. Be proud of who you are." 


    "The most important thing I want to say is just really embrace who you are, because being unique is very, very important and fitting in is not all that matters," she went on. "It’s being unique and being who you are."


    Bravo.

    Britney Spears celebrated her 100th "Piece of Me" show at Planet Hollywood on Friday, but after her two-year contract is up, will she be ready to leave Las Vegas?


    "I'm not really sure. I haven't made up my mind. I really love doing the show. It's a lot, a lot of fun but I'm kind of torn right now. I don't really know what I want to do," Spears told E! News at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday night, where she nabbed the Candie's Style Icon award. 


    Spears launched her Vegas residency show back in December 2013. If she doesn't renew her contract with Planet Hollywood, her last performances will run from now until late November, with final shows running from Dec. 26 to New Year's Eve. 


    Spears' residency show is said to have been very lucrative for the 33-year-old star. Back in September 2013, TMZ reported that Spears was set to make $30 million over the course of her two-year contract.


    Meanwhile, Spears told E! News she's keeping busy and has been back in the studio recording new music. And fans can expect to see her on TV this fall, when she'll guest star on The CW's "Jane the Virgin," which the singer called one of her "favorite shows ever."

    Kris Jenner confronts Caitlyn about their relationship in an upcoming episode of "I Am Cait," saying she feels like she was just a "distraction." 


    In the teaser shared by E!, a teary-eyed Kris sits in front of Caitlyn while discussing their 22-year marriage, which ended in 2013. 


    "You're sensitive and amazing to all these new people in your life," she says. "You're just not so sensitive and amazing to the family that you left behind." 


    "I try to do everything I can -- be nice, reach out," Caitlyn responds. "You have to understand it from my perspective. Be an ally when it comes to dealing with the kids." 


    But Kris breaks down: "When you feel like you gave your whole life to somebody, and the sum of it all was you were a distraction ..." 


    Both Khloe and Kim Kardashian confronted Caitlyn about her Vanity Fair profile from the July 2015 issue, in which she candidly discussed her marriage to Kris and what drove them apart. Caitlyn, however, stood by the interview


    "The Vanity Fair article was interesting to do, because it was the first time I ever really had the opportunity to be absolutely truthful with a reporter about every aspect of my life," the 65-year-old said. "It was an honest article, and sometimes when you're honest it can be upsetting to some people."

    Jessica Alba is officially one of the wealthiest women in America who's made her fortune from scratch. 


    Thanks to her non-toxic product line The Honest Company, which Business Wire reports just closed $100 million in Series D financing, the 34-year-old actress' net worth is up to about $340 million.


    Alba now sits comfortably on Forbes' list of the nation's richest self-made women. Bestselling author Nora Roberts, Texas oil mogul Kathy Lehne and music icon Madonna are also on the list, keeping the "Honey" star in good company. 


    The "Sin City" star's business is now worth more than $1.7 billion, as reported by the Wall Street Journal. The movie star and mother of two owns about a 20 percent stake in Honest, which has grown into quite the empire. What started as a brand selling diapers and baby wipes online has turned into a massive collection of products, ranging from hand sanitizer to laundry detergent


    Alba's stake in her company makes her richer than the queen B herself, Beyoncé Knowles, whose net worth rings in at $250 million (sorry, Bey). She also beats out YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki ($300 million), though sits about $40 million behind Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer. 


    We doubt it'll be long before she tops the list altogether.

    The live-in boyfriend of actor Morgan Freeman's granddaughter was charged on Monday with her murder, police said.


    E'Dena Hines, 33, was found fatally stabbed early on Sunday in a street near her apartment in the city's Washington Heights neighborhood, according to the New York Police Department.


    She had suffered multiple stab wounds to the torso and was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.


    Lamar Davenport, 30, was taken into custody and transferred to a hospital for mental evaluation, police said.


    Davenport had been seen by witnesses attacking Hines, yelling "Get out, devils. I cast you out, devils," according to reports in the Daily News and New York Post.


    He was charged early on Monday with second-degree murder, police said.


    He remained hospitalized under evaluation, police said.


    Hines and Davenport lived together at 43 West 162nd Street, police said.


    Hines studied acting at New York University and was an actor, writer and acting instructor, according to her website.


    Freeman, 78, has appeared in more than 100 films, among them "Invictus," "The Shawshank Redemption" and "Driving Miss Daisy." He won an Oscar in 2005 for his supporting role in "Million Dollar Baby."


    “I want to acknowledge the tremendous outpouring of love and support my family has received regarding the tragic and senseless passing of my granddaughter Edena Hines,” Freeman said in a posting on his Facebook page. “Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”


    Hines was Freeman's step-granddaughter but he never referred to her as that, Freeman publicist Stan Rosenfield said. She was the granddaughter of his first wife Jeanette Adair Bradshaw, who was divorced from Freeman in 1979.

    Things got emotional for the "Furious 7" cast during Sunday night's Teen Choice Awards.


    Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Ludacris and Jordana Brewster came on stage to accept the award for Choice Movie: Action. After thanking their young fans, Diesel took a moment to remember the late Paul Walker. "One of the best blessings in our lives is the fact that we had the opportunity to call Pablo our brother," Diesel said of Walker. Diesel also gave a shoutout to Walker's parents and brother, and especially to his daughter, Meadow Walker, who was in the audience.


    Afterward, Ludacris presented the award for Choice Actor: Action, which went to  Walker. "We miss you and we will always, always love you, Paul," Brewster said. "Furious 7" also won the Choice Music award for Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's song, "See You Again," just in case you weren't already crying.

    Crooner Billy Joel became a father again this past week when his 33-year-old wife, Alexis Roderick Joel, gave birth to a little girl, Della Rose. At 66,  Joel may seem to be on the older end of the spectrum when it comes to caring for a newborn.


    But there are plenty of reasons why we think he'll be just fine. 


    Being an older parent brings a number of benefits. You have more life experience and -- if you're already a parent, like Joel -- you've had a lot of practice as well.


    Joel isn't the only father around -- especially in Hollywood. Here are seven celebrities who embraced fatherhood later in the game, proving parenting after 50 is just as rewarding as parenting at any age.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Johnny Depp didn't say a word as he stepped onto a small stage inside the Lucky Strike bowling alley. He just strapped on a guitar and started playing with the band.


    One song later, Gene Simmons joined in.


    The superstar pairing capped off a fundraising concert Sunday for MendingKids.org, an organization that provides hundreds of free corrective surgeries each year for children around the world. Besides Depp and Simmons, the event also featured a surprise reunion of rock group Extreme for a performance of their 1991 classic "More Than Words."


    After appearances by various musicians, Depp quietly joined the house band to play Alice Cooper's "School's Out." (The 52-year-old actor announced last week that he is forming a band with Cooper and guitarist Joe Perry called Hollywood Vampires that will release a self-titled album next month and donate proceeds to charity.)


    His hair slicked back, Depp wore jeans and an oxford shirt topped with a gray vest. He played a white electric guitar.


    Simmons was the last to take the stage. A supporter of MendingKids.org for several years, the 65-year-old entertainer invited anyone with $1,000 to donate to the organization to come up and sing with the band. About 10 donors took him up on the offer, including his son and daughter, and they shared the stage with Depp, Simmons and the rest of the band during the closing number, the Kiss hit "Rock and Roll All Nite."


    After the show, Depp waved to fans and disappeared out a side door.

    Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux managed to pull off a super-secret wedding earlier this month. 


    Presently, we know very little about the affair other than the guest list was small, there was a Muppet-themed cake, Jimmy Kimmel officiated and people are really desperate to see Aniston in her wedding dress. 


    Proof of said desperation is a Jennifer Aniston fan page on Facebook, which shared a photo of a woman in a wedding dress this weekend:



    That picture, which was originally posted with the message "You have my whole heart for my whole life #WeddingDress," was enough for several publications to jump the gun and declare that readers had to see Aniston in her wedding dress. But, it absolutely was not the star in her wedding dress -- it was a random model in a wedding dress.





    Sorry, guys. We probably aren't going to see Jennifer Aniston in her wedding dress, unless she wants us to.
