The True Dark Story Behind Winnie the Pooh

Winnie the Pooh was actually inspired by this author's sad childhood

Pooh Bear, Tigger, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga and Roo are all lovable characters most of us know well from our childhoods. What many people don’t know is that the adorable books are based on author A. A. Milne’s real son Christopher Robin and his stuffed animals. While the trailer of the new film Goodbye Christopher Robin teases a warm and cuddly film, it actually tells the true story of a little boy who felt betrayed by those who should have loved him the most: his parents.

Playwright A. A. Milne (Domhnall Gleeson) returned from World War I “.” Today, we call the psychological condition post-traumatic stress disorder, but that term didn’t exist at the beginning of the last century. His wife Daphne (Margot Robbie) is a beautiful but shallow socialite who loves fashion, parties and dancing. Though reluctant, she agrees to have a baby to please her husband.

The couple names their son Christopher Robin (Will Tilston), but they prefer to call him Billy. Daphne doesn’t seem to enjoy motherhood and eagerly hands the boy over to his governess, Olive (Kelly Macdonald), who luckily adores the child.


After the Milnes move to the country for a quieter life, Daphne, missing her glamorous social life, gets fed up and takes off to London for two weeks. At the same time, Olive has to leave to attend to her dying mother. Little Billy is left alone with his emotionally distant dad.

The result is surprisingly wonderful — for both father and son. They spend their days playing in the woods. Billy brings his stuffed animals and he and his dad make up stories about their adventures.

Milne is so inspired after spending time with his son, he writes the Pooh books based on his son and his stuffed animals. While it sounds like a decision made out of love, it didn’t exactly end up feeling that way to Billy.

Once the book was published, it became a huge success. As it flew off store shelves around the world, an unexpected dynamic took place.

Readers everywhere wanted to meet the real Christopher Robin, the boy at the center of this seemingly magical world. Thrust into the spotlight by his parents and publishers, Billy was paraded around for the media, not understanding why everyone kept calling him Christopher.

But all the little boy wanted to do was play a game of Poohsticks in the woods with his father.

With the media attention all around the world focused on his son, Milne grew jealous. He was the writer, after all, and he began to resent his son. When he started avoiding Billy, the young child became confused and hurt. The two weeks of bliss he spent playing and bonding with his father now seemed like just dream. His life became about spending long days meeting unfamiliar children and adults surrounded by cameras, forced to wear the outfit depicted in the book.

Olive finally stood up to his parents, saying the boy needed to be protected, not treated like a show pony. But his parents didn’t appreciate her uppity attitude, and a rift is formed. When Olive’s boyfriend asked her to marry him, she had no choice but to leave the family. Billy was heartbroken.

Milne wrote four Winnie the Pooh books, but agreed to stop writing them at the request of Billy, who was constantly throughout his schooling. The other boys didn’t appreciate the media darling and wanted to put him in his place. Billy was forced to learn how to box to protect himself.

What’s so surprising about this story is that the Winnie the Pooh books still continue to bring joy to children almost 100 years after they were written. Surely, it seems, only a kind and loving soul could have written them. But looking through a modern parenting lens, . At the time, however, it was normal for wealthy British children to be kept at arm’s length. It seems the success of the books created a situation neither parent expected or knew how to handle. Could they have done better? Yes. Were they self-absorbed? Yes. But it seems unlikely they set out to purposefully hurt their son.

In 1974, Billy published the first of three autobiographical books. The Enchanted Places details what his life was like as a child. He never took any money associated with the Pooh franchise and eventually gave his treasured stuffed animals to the books’ editor. They are now on display at the New York Public Library.

Christopher Robin “Billy” Milne died in his sleep in 1996. He was 75.

Goodbye Christopher Robin is an unflinching look at a dysfunctional family that will have you in tears. Newcomer Will Tilston as Billy will steal your heart and make you want to pull out those Pooh books to read again to your kids.

Goodbye Christopher Robin opens in limited release on Oct. 13.

Black Panther’s First Trailer Is Here, & It’s a Game-Changer

Black Panther is a welcome escape from the typical Marvel movie

The internet promptly lost its chill on Monday when the first official dropped. While we’d had for the first solo adventures of Black Panther, the Wakandan king-turned-superhero we got a glimpse of in Captain America: Civil War, this first official trailer blew all our expectations out of the water.


The first official trailer promises — nay, ensures — that Black Panther will be unlike any other Marvel superhero film we’ve seen since the official extended and cohesive Marvel cinematic universe began more than a decade ago. Directed by Creed helmer Ryan Coogler and starring prominent actors Lupita Nyong’o, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, The Walking Dead‘s Danai Gurira, Michael B. Jordan and, of course, the star himself Chadwick Boseman, it’s clear , vision and cast will bring this story to life in ways we never could have imagined.

Filled to the brim with action, we get a good idea of what to expect from this film: T’Challa, aka Black Panther, will return to his home nation of Wakanda following the death of his father. While there, he’ll face off against weapons manufacturer Ulysses Klaue (played by Andy Serkis) and his vengeful ally, Erik Killmonger (Jordan). T’Challa will have to not only become Black Panther in order to protect his people, but he’ll also come into his own as a superhero during this eventful time.


The trailer promises stunning visual effects, building out the Afrofuturistic (which, in the comics, is a private and highly advanced nation — the most technologically advanced in the world) and showing us some great glimpses into the action sequences we can expect to revel in. It’s pretty tough not to lose your cool when watching a trailer this vibrant and high-octane.

Needless to say, the internet fully and completely flipped for the trailer, with many making it plain through their well-crafted tweets and GIF choices just how much they were feeling this trailer.

Bizarre Facts About Alfred Hitchcock & His Twisted Movies

Yes, Alfred Hitchcock was just as spooky IRL as you think

What’s the first thing you think of when you hear Alfred Hitchock’s name? Most likely, you immediately reflect on his contribution to the film industry.


From Psycho to The Birds to Rear Window to Vertigo to North by Northwest to The Man Who Knew Too Much, Hitchcock had a way of scaring individuals greatly, all while making them think. He certainly knew how to create both horror and mystery.

There’s no denying he had a talent — and one that is still recognized today. But there may be some things you don’t know about the late filmmaker. Basically, Hitchcock was an odd man to say the least and someone who came under scrutiny . It should be noted that in her 2016 memoir, Tippi, and other inappropriate behavior during the filming of The Birds.

If you really take a dive into the internet and research him, you’ll soon learn all kinds of facts about Hitchcock — and ones that just might make you do a double take. With that, allow yourself to become acquainted with the real Alfred Hitchcock.


1. He had a lot of fears

According to Newsweek, and was said to be an “artist of anxiety,” per director François Truffaut. As listed by Newsweek, “He suffered from vertigo, he was scared of sex, he had been morbidly afraid of the police ever since his father, to punish him for a childhood misdemeanor, had him locked up for three minutes in a police cell.”

2. He enjoyed scaring his stars

Also reported by Newsweek, he wasn’t shy about scaring those who starred in his films, because, apparently, it was his way of “keeping them on edge during the shoot in order to catch their tension on celluloid.” So much so, the outlet reports he even hid the body of Norman Bate’s mother in Janet Leigh’s Psycho dressing room to measure her scream. Leigh even once said (via Newsweek), “He relished scaring me.”

3. His pranks sometimes went too far

The Telegraph reports that , but they weren’t your typical ones. Truffaut once said that Hitchcock admitted to him, “I do have a weakness for practical jokes and have played quite a few in my time.”

As for these so-called practical jokes, one time the director held a dinner party and added food coloring to the food resulting in blue soup, blue trout and blue peaches and ice cream. Hitchcock was reportedly interested in seeing how his guests would react to this kind of situation. Furthermore, he once played on actor Elsie Randolph’s fear of fire by having a technician pump smoke into a telephone booth she was in after locking the door.

He reportedly defended himself in a 1972 interview regarding his pranks and said he had never meant to “harm or denigrate” anybody.



4. His own movies frightened him

Believe it or not, Hitchcock’s . According to The Independent, he said in 1963, “I’m frightened of my own movies. I never go to see them. I don’t know how people can bear to watch my movies.”

5. Eggs also scared him

His films weren’t the only thing that frightened him. So did eggs. Yes, the eggs you eat. Per The Independent, “I’m frightened of eggs, worse than frightened, they revolt me,” he admitted. “That white round thing without any holes… Have you ever seen anything more revolting than an egg yolk breaking and spilling its yellow liquid? Blood is jolly, red. But egg yolk is yellow, revolting. I’ve never tasted it.”

6. He refused to meet Steven Spielberg

As the late Bruce Dern detailed in his autobiography (via, he tried to get . “I said, ‘You’re his idol. He just [wants] to sit at your feet for five minutes and chat with you.'” However, Hitchcock wouldn’t do it because as Dern explained, “He said, ‘Isn’t that the boy who made the fish movie?… I could never sit down and talk to him… because I look at him and feel like such a whore.'” After Dern asked him why he made him feel that way, he said Hitchcock revealed, “Because I’m the voice of the Jaws ride [at Universal Studios]. They paid me $1 million dollars. And I took it and I did it. I’m such a whore. I can’t sit down and talk to the boy who did the fish movie… I couldn’t even touch his hand.”

7. What he thought about blondes

Hitchcock cast many blond female actors (Leigh, Hedren, Doris Day, Eva Marie Saint) in his movies, and apparently, . Via The Guardian, he once said, “Blondes make the best victims. They’re like virgin snow that shows up the bloody footprints.”



8. This unsuspected Psycho fact

In a fact that you probably didn’t see coming, Psycho was the first American film on screen according to NPR. And here everyone thought the shower was the most famous thing from the movie.

9. He once gave Melanie Griffith this bonkers gift

In The Telegraph‘s feature about Hitchcock’s pranks, it was also revealed he once gave Melanie Griffith (Hedren’s daughter) an extremely strange present. “He gave the little girl the gift of a painfully accurate wax doll figure of her mother in a miniature coffin, dressed in the same costume she wore in The Birds,” per the outlet. “Years later, a grown-up Griffith said of Hitchcock: ‘He was a motherfucker, and you can quote me.”


10. He built an entire apartment complex for Rear Window

When it came to the set of Rear Window, . So much so, he had the apartment complex showcased in the movie built. As revealed by Steven Jacobs in The Wrong House: The Architecture of Alfred Hitchcock (via the New York Post), this set “…became the largest indoor set ever built at Paramount. Hitchcock himself superintended the huge and complex construction that took six weeks to set up.” Jacobs also added, “The entire set was fit with a sophisticated drainage system for the rain scene and with an ingenious wiring mechanism for the highly complex lighting of day and night scenes in both the exterior of the courtyard and the interior of the apartments.”



11. He also “planted” 100 Ponderosa pines for North by Northwest

That wasn’t the only set Hitchcock went above and beyond for. According to the Turner Classic Movie network, in the woods with Cary Grant and Saint due to expenses. However, Hitchcock wouldn’t listen and ended up building the woods set on a soundstage using 100 Ponderosa pines.

Elizabeth Smart Calls Lifetime’s I Am Elizabeth Smart ‘The Best Worst Movie’

This Lifetime movie about Elizabeth Smart is going to be heartbreaking

In the time since Elizabeth Smart, then 14, was abducted from her Salt Lake City bedroom in 2002, her story has remained largely unfathomable — which is to say that most of us can’t imagine enduring her horrific ordeal. However, the upcoming lifetime movie I Am Elizabeth Smart will soon shed some light on what Smart survived.


hints at the true horror Smart suffered at the hands of her abductor, Brian David Mitchell, after he led her away from her home at knifepoint. Her abuse, which was both physical and sexual, stretched for the duration of her nine-month captivity.

Smart’s story, though, has a happy ending. She was rescued in March 2003 and is a living testament to the strength of the human spirit.


Mitchell now serves a life sentence, and Smart has put him firmly in her past. She is now a mother of two and a successful author and TV news correspondent, as well as an activist against abuse and an advocate for other victims.

“When I had my little girl, it felt like my heart was relocated in my throat,” in December. “Every second of my day was, ‘Is she breathing? Is she OK? What does she need?’ Now, as a parent, going out and talking to other parents, talking to other survivors and hearing their story, I can’t help but think of my own parents and what they went through.”


Of the film, which is set to premiere Nov. 18 on Lifetime, Smart said, “It is the best worst movie I’ve ever seen. It was so well done and accurate. I’m very proud of it.”

Christian Bale’s Physical Transformation Left Him Completely Unrecognizable

Christian, is that you?

Christian Bale is known for transforming for roles, and his latest gig is proving to be no exception. In from his currently untitled film about Dick Cheney, Bale is basically unrecognizable.


Bale is set to play the former vice president alongside Amy Adams, who will be stepping into the role of Lynne Cheney. And let’s just say they both really committed to looking the part — especially Bale.

So how did Bale complete his Cheney transformation? According to , “a lot of pies.” That was what Bale joked he’d been eating in order to gain the weight needed to mimic Cheney.


Of course, the answer is likely a bit more complicated than that. But at this point in his career, Bale probably knows precisely what to do in order to pack on the pounds… and take them away.

For the 2004 psychological thriller The Machinist, Bale shed an extreme amount of weight (guesses put it at half his body weight!) to play a gaunt insomniac. And let’s not forget the way he manipulated his looks in order to play the sketchy con artist Irving Rosenfeld in American Hustle.


Bale is arguably one of the best method actors in Hollywood, so it’s not entirely surprising he would totally immerse himself in this new role. Still, it doesn’t make it any less impressive when you see and quite literally wouldn’t be able to pick him out of a lineup.

Bale was more recognizable as Batman, and he was wearing a mask for half of those movies!

Jenna Dewan Tatum Is Ready to Star in a Practical Magic Sequel

Is a Practical Magic sequel in the works?

It’s been nearly 20 years since Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman starred in the now-cult Halloween film Practical Magic, so it might just be time to conjure up a sequel. And one actress is ready and willing to embrace her witchy ways in the reboot: Jenna Dewan Tatum.


We recently had the chance to chat with Dewan Tatum, who — let’s be real — is basically a shoo-in for a Practical Magic spin-off. She starred in the TV series Witches of Eastwick, surrounds herself with crystals and uses essential oils like it’s nobody’s business. Plus, she’s alluringly beautiful. In other words, she just generally gives off that whole Fleetwood Mac “Witchy Woman” vibe.

When we pitched the idea to Dewan Tatum about bringing Practical Magic back to the big screen, she couldn’t contain her excitement.

“Oh my gosh, that’s so cute. Let’s do it — make that happen!” she said, adding, “First of all, Practical Magic is one of my favorite movies. I think that’s kind of one of the best movies ever made. It’s one I put on when I need to make my day a little better or cheer myself up. It’s such a great movie.”

Dewan Tatum suggested that perhaps Sandra Bullock (or “Sandy,” as she calls her) could make a cameo. Which begs the question, How would Dewan Tatum fit into the Practical Magic picture?

It could be a straightforward reboot, in which case Dewan Tatum would actually star as Sandra Bullock’s character, Sally Owens. In which case we suggest Jessica Chastain stand in for Nicole Kidman as Sally’s sister, Gillian.


Another option would be to have Dewan Tatum play the grown-up version of Sally’s raven-haired daughter, Antonio. This works out well because the actress who originally played the little girl, Alexandra Artrip, is no longer acting.

Antonio’s sister, of course, was played by a young Evan Rachel Wood. And since we all know she is still acting (hello, Westworld!), she can star alongside Dewan Tatum.

A third and final option would be to cast Dewan Tatum in the prequel. Yep, you heard me — there’s a prequel. Don’t feel bad if you weren’t in the know, because it just came to be. Practical Magic hit bookshelves on Oct. 10.

According to the book synopsis, Rules follows Susanna Owens and her three children: Franny, Jet and Vincent. “The Owens children cannot escape love even if they try, just as they cannot escape the pains of the human heart,” says the synopsis. “The two beautiful sisters will grow up to be the revered, and sometimes feared, aunts in Practical Magic, while Vincent, their beloved brother, will leave an unexpected legacy.”

Get hype, people! This could certainly lead to a Practical Magic spin-off, in which case Dewan Tatum is the perfect pick to play Jet in her younger years.


Let’s just hope that whatever reboot or revival film comes — ’cause you know it’s inevitable — fares better than the original when it comes to bad juju. According to director Griffin Dunne, in fact, the first film was actually cursed by a real witch.

In , Dunne opened up for the very first time about the incident, explaining that he hired a witch consultant to ensure the film’s authenticity. Unfortunately, he got a whole lot more than he bargained for.

When the witch demanded an additional $250,000 for her services and a producer refused, the witch was livid. Dunne returned to the office that day to find a scathing and, to be quite honest, entirely too creepy message waiting for him.

“I got back to my office on the Warner Bros. lot and I listen to my voicemail,” she recalled. “‘How dare you sic that shrew on me?’ she said in the message. ‘You think you can buy me off, well let me tell you something… there is a land of curses!'”

Then, Dunne says, the witch slipped into speaking in tongues.

“It was terrifying. I listened to as much as I could and then I hung up. Within minutes, Warner’s been served with papers. She’s suing Warner Bros.”


Ultimately, the studio did settle for an undisclosed amount in order to get the witch to back away. However, Dunne could never shake the idea that she really did somehow hex the movie — upon its release in 1998, it was critically panned and largely unsuccessful at the box office.

But hey, the joke’s on the witch, because Practical Magic is a Halloween classic now. If you don’t believe us, just ask Jenna Dewan Tatum.

Beyoncé’s Not Even the Best Part of the Lion King Remake

This cast is stacked like you wouldn't believe

If you woke up this morning, scrolled through Twitter, saw the cast announcement for the live-action remake of Disney’s The Lion King and literally screamed, you are not alone. In fact, you’re far from it.


Disney dropped a significant portion of the cast, which was almost immediately shared by Beyoncé because she’s going to be playing Nala, and OMG, I can’t breathe.


The internet pretty much immediately melted down upon getting this news, which is understandable, because Bey is perfect for this part, but also kind of beyond-our-wildest-hopes-and-dreams-level perfect. Yet she’s doing it. And Beyoncé is far from the only exciting part of this cast, which is dominated by people of color. Donald Glover will play Simba, and James Earl Jones is the reprising his role, Mufasa, from the 1994 animated film. The absolutely legendary John Kani will be Rafiki. John Oliver is the perfect Zazu we never even would have thought of. Billy Eichner and Seth Rogen will also team up as Timon and Pumbaa.

Guys, the star power in this cast is 15/10. I don’t even know how to convey how happy I am in words, and it’s literally what I do for a living.


Obviously, people are stoked. There is no acceptable reaction other than utter excitement.

damn the lion king is about to be the best movie of all time.

— nap enthusiast (@gnash)

The new casting is absurdly glorious. good job. A+ all around.

— Gnarly Rae Jepsen (@ToekneeCe)

Yo that Lion King soundtrack finna be crazyyyyy

— Black Squad Captain (@tonybrizown)

How the Disney exec that closed Beyonce’s Lion King deal was greeted when they came into work today

— Matthew A. Cherry (@MatthewACherry)

the new movie will use CGI and green screens, much like the live-action remake of The Jungle Book — the two films share director Jon Favreau. Hans Zimmer is set to score the new film; he wrote much of the score of the animated original.


Now all we have to do is wait two freaking years. Ugh, how are we going to make it?

Milo Ventimiglia & Jennifer Lopez Are Going to Be On-Screen Lovers

Best casting news ever

Updated Nov. 2, 2017, 10:30 a.m. PT: Jennifer Lopez and Leah Remini’s upcoming rom-com has its male lead! , Milo Ventimiglia will play Lopez’s boyfriend in Second Act, a movie about a woman who works at a big-box store and tries to reinvent herself in her middle age.

We already know from watching This Is Us that Ventimiglia can pull off the most romantic of boyfriend/husband roles, so we’re pretty excited to see how this goes. However, since it’s a rom-com, we’re a little confused about the fact that he’s been announced as her boyfriend. Shouldn’t he be her love interest who becomes her boyfriend later? Just don’t tell us he’s a sucky boyfriend who dumps her in the beginning. Ugh, our hearts can’t take that.

Original story:

Excuse me, world, but were you aware that Leah Remini and Jennifer Lopez are best friends in real life? Somehow, I did not know this despite being possibly Leah Remini’s No. 1 fan.


In case you need proof, here’s an adorable Instagram Remini posted while having a “family dinner” that Lopez attended, because they’re such close BFFs, they’re actually family.

A post shared by Leah Remini (@leahremini) on

And here’s one Lopez posted showing her posing with her “peeps,” one of whom is, of course, Remini. They are snuggling and it looks like a truly delightful BFF-hood they have there.

A post shared by Jennifer Lopez (@jlo) on


Because they are best friends forever IRL, it would make sense for them to play best friends forever in, say a movie. Like a rom-com, because Lord knows we are overdue for a Jennifer Lopez rom-com. That would be a wonderful turn of events, now, wouldn’t it?

Well, surprise! It’s totally happening. that in their upcoming film, Second Act, Lopez will play a middle-aged woman looking to reinvent herself and prove to the snobs on Madison Avenue that she don’t need no college degree. Remini will play her best friend and co-worker at a big-box store.


Supposedly this is a rom-com, but there’s no male lead that’s been announced yet, and we don’t know whether Lopez of Remini will find love (or both? Please let it be both). All we do know is that this is a movie we can’t wait to see with our own real-life BFFs.

Anastasia Steele Finds Her Strength in the Final Fifty Shades Freed Trailer

Ana's the real boss in the next Fifty Shades film

Updated Nov. 6, 2017, 12:00 p.m. PT: Happy Monday to all because is here! And oh, boy, this one is about as sexy and empowering and soapy as they come. Buckle up because this trailer promises to deliver the final adventure that your drama-loving self has been eagerly anticipating for months.

If you need a moment, go ahead and take one. I’ll wait.

OK, we’re ready to talk about this now, right?

First off, this movie is going to be quite a wild ride. The trailer confirms that the movie will be no different than that book; everything is going off the rails for Ana and Christian. There’s the return of Jack Hyde. There are a bunch of guns. It looks like Elena Lincoln is back and there might be some suspected adultery between her and Christian. And of course, it’s not just Elena vying for Christian’s attention. It looks like Ana and Christian’s man-eating architect wants a piece of him as well.

Oh, and let’s not forget that there’s this little moment where Ana, for the first time ever, becomes a character that is more than the human equivalent of wet laundry and asserts herself to the hot architect who hits on her hubs. From now on, anytime I feel remotely disrespected, my reply will be, “You may call me Mrs. Grey.”

While this trailer was certainly a lot to handle, it’s actually pretty dang satisfying — just like Fifty Shades should be.

Original story:

If you can believe it, the Fifty Shades franchise just got even more intense. On Sunday, the first teaser trailer for Fifty ShadesFreed dropped — and it revealed that some decidedly dark days are in store for Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. Or should we say Mr. and Mrs. Grey?


The first look at the third and supposedly final Fifty Shades film isn’t entirely foreboding. The trailer begins with Anastasia (Dakota Johnson) and Christian (Jamie Dornan) getting hitched. Predictably, they both look stunning.

“I solemnly vow to love you faithfully, forsaking all others. I promise to trust and respect you and to keep you safe for as long as we both shall live. All that I have is now yours,” Christian is heard reciting as Anastasia’s gown is buttoned up.


After the wedding, the newlyweds board their personal jet (“You own that?” Anastasia asks. “We own that,” Christian responds). We’re then treated to a shirtless Christian while the happy couple honeymoons, followed by a few glimpses of their erotic interludes.

It would appear, though, that things soon go south… and not in the fun, naughty way.

There’s a gun, Anastasia nearly being run off the road in her beautiful Audi, and what one can only presume is Anastasia being kidnapped by a mysterious man brandishing an extremely large knife. So, uh, I guess you could say the honeymoon is over?


Fans of the book likely recognize the sequence of events as part of Anastasia and Christian’s storyline created by the writer of the Fifty Shades series, E L James.

If you haven’t read the books, you can catch up on what’s really happening in the Greys’ world when Fifty Shades Freed hits theaters on Valentine’s Day 2018.

Which Leonardo DiCaprio Character Is Your Soul Mate?

There's a famous DiCaprio character for everyone

Let’s face it. Leo DiCaprio is one of the most talented, sexy and versatile actors in Hollywood. He’s been around since he was a kid, but his baby face has transformed into a tested, talented, masculine actor. He can do anything from foreign accents to Shakespeare to steamy sex scenes. But if we had to pick just one of DiCaprio’s characters as our soul mate to love for all of eternity, we’re not sure we could. Of course, Jack Dawson from Titanic satisfies our romantic nature, but the cool perfection of Jay Gatsby is sexy as hell.


Luckily, we’ve created an in-depth quiz that examines your personal values and needs to connect you with the most compatible version of DiCaprio that exists. Finally, you can match your sense of style, your living environment and even your favorite film with the many faces of Leo. Let’s get started.
