We found out this summer that four-year-old Vivienne Jolie-Pitt would be playing a young princess Aurora (the full grown role will go to Elle Fanning).

Not all that glitters is gold

Twilight Made Melissa Rosenberg the Highest-Grossing Female Screenwriter of All Time

Melissa Rosenberg has beaten screenwriter Linda Woolverton for the title of highest-grossing woman screenwriter of all time. While Woolverton’s credits include Tim Burton‘s Alice in Wonderland, The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, and Homeward Bound, Rosenberg has likely edged out her competition with her one film series: Twilight.
