According to new research, if you text and drive, you may be a psychopath. The new data — from interviews with nearly 1,000 German drivers, found a shocking 61% admitted to “problematic” use of their devices while driving. Along with connections to ‘fear of missing out’ and anti-social behavior, problematic smartphone users were also associated to narcissism and psychopathy. Recent unrelated research also connected drivers with deliberately loud cars to psychopathy.

The term “footage” comes from films being measured in feet when being edited in the early days of filmmaking. Back in the day, when movies were released without audio, they used to use 35mm film.


Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman are ready for some midnight margaritas. 26 years after “Practical Magic” hit theaters, the Owens women are returning for a sequel. Deals for the “Big Little Lies” star and “The Proposal” actress to return for “Practical Magic 2” are currently being negotiated. The duo is set to produce the project alongside the original film’s Denise Di Novi. The 1998 film stars Bullock and Kidman as sisters ‘Sally’ and ‘Gillian’, who come from a supernaturally gifted family, and must try to destroy the evil spirit of Gillian’s abusive ex-boyfriend ‘Jimmy’.

A red Ferrari that once belonged to Cher just sold at auction, and the new owner shelled out over half a million bucks for the vintage sportscar. Cher’s former 1972 Ferrari 246 Dino GTS changed hands Monday, going for $568,000. She bought it brand new in ’72, and owned it for a couple years before it was acquired by racer Chris Cord. The Dino 246 GTS was the first car Ferrari manufactured in high numbers, and this model was one of about 2,900 when Cher bought it back in the day from Hollywood Sports Cars. No word on who the new owner is.

If you love your carbs, beware: Foods such as white bread, pasta, chips, cereal and crackers could be worse for your teeth than dessert. Whitney DiFoggio, a registered dental hygienist, is warning that fermentable carbohydrates are bad for teeth because they break down into “sneaky sugars” while they’re still being chewed, which increases your chances of tooth decay. Parents will often offer Goldfish crackers over candy because they believe it’s a healthier option, “but it might be just as bad”, DiFoggio said. The good news? Dark chocolate is surprisingly good for your teeth because it can be easily rinsed off, as are foods that “require heavier biting and chewing,” such as crunchy vegetables.

A woman who was given just a 15% chance of conceiving a baby naturally was finally able to give birth to a child — after strangers donated $13,000 for her to undergo IVF. Gem Baker of England had always dreamed of being a mom, but never met the right man with which to start a family. And after the now-38-year-old was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2017, she was told she had a low egg count – and very poor chances of conceiving a child. Although the news was “soul-destroying”, she looked into in vitro fertilization, but was shocked by the cost. Her friend urged her to set up a GoFundMe, and, as she put it, “It just went mental”. She managed to raise $13,000, including her own savings of $1.5k, and managed to lose 75 pounds – to give herself the best chance of conceiving. After a few false starts, she took a pregnancy test – and it was positive. 9 months later, she was able to welcome her little girl, Clover-Iris, into the world. Today Clover-Iris is 11-months-old and Gem says that “Being a mum is exactly what I dreamed, and more.”

WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by

Sometimes, in the midst of a long travel day, there’s nothing more relaxing than unbuckling your airplane seatbelt, downing a nice glass of wine, then grabbing your neck pillow, and eye mask…and Z-z-z-z… But researchers are saying that’s a very bad idea. Following study by the Institute of Aerospace Medicine in Germany, experts are calling for limits to in-flight alcoholic beverages. Why? It was found that plane passengers who drink before dozing off during long-haul flights are risking their heart health. It seems that the combo of cabin pressure, drinking, and dozing lowers the amount of oxygen in the blood — and raises heart rate for an extended period – even in people who are young and healthy. The researchers wrote: “Higher doses of alcohol could amplify these…effects…escalating the risk of health complications and medical emergencies during flight, especially among older individuals and those with…medical conditions.” As a result, they are suggesting that “inflight consumption of alcoholic beverages should be restricted.”

THE LIST: Brought to you by


It seems like certain actors were simply destined to play certain roles. But these stars came oh-so-close to signing on for famous films…

Tom Selleck in Indiana Jones: Initially, Selleck was eyed to play the fedora-wearing hero, and had even completed a screen test for the part. Ultimately, he was unable to commit due to his work on “Magnum P.I.”. George Lucas eventually allowed his “Star Wars” colleague Harrison Ford to audition for the part…and the rest is history.

Christina Applegate in Legally Blonde: Reese Witherspoon is renowned for playing socialite ‘Elle Woods’, but Applegate had turned down the role because she felt it was too similar to her role in TV’s “Married … With Children”.

Harry Styles in The Little Mermaid: The One Direction singer decided against playing ‘Prince Eric’ in the 2023 remake because he wanted to work on “darker” projects. Jonah Hauer-King was later cast in the role to star alongside Halle Bailey.

Halle Berry in Speed: She was almost cast in the 1994 action thriller that eventually starred Sandra Bullock alongside Keanu Reeves – about a bus that will explode if it drops below 50mph. But as she later put it: “I stupidly said no. But in my defence, when I read the script, the bus didn’t leave the parking lot.”

Michelle Pfeiffer in The Silence of the Lambs: After working with director Jonathan Demme on 1988’s “Married to the Mob”, Pfeiffer was offered the role of ‘Clarice Starling’, but decided the movie was too “evil” for her. The part went to Jodie Foster…and so did the ‘Best Actress’ Oscar.

John Krasinski in Captain America: The First Avenger: Before Chris Evans landed the part, Krasinski auditioned to play the star-spangled hero. He ultimately decided his physique wouldn’t look very good next to superhero counterpart Chris Hemsworth, who played ‘Thor’.

Britney Spears in The Notebook: After being chosen ahead of Scarlett Johansson, Claire Danes and Jessica Biel, Spears and Rachel McAdams were the final 2 in contention for the ‘Allie Hamilton’ role. Despite a “phenomenal” audition, Britney didn’t land it, but she was OK with that, because it gave her more time to work on her “In the Zone” album.

Leonardo DiCaprio in Boogie Nights: Before Mark Wahlberg landed his break-out role as ‘Dirk Diggler’, the part was offered to Leo. But he turned it down because a “Titanic” opportunity presented itself, courtesy of James Cameron. Still, he later reflected: “Boogie Nights is a movie I loved and I wish I would’ve done.” (This one actually might have worked!)

Madonna in The Matrix: She was offered the chance appear in the sci-fi classic alongside Keanu Reeves, but rejected the role, presumably the part of ‘Trinity’ taken by Carrie-Anne Moss. Madonna quote: “Can you believe that? That’s, like, one of the best movies ever made.”

Jake Gyllenhaal in Spider-Man 2: He nearly replaced Tobey Maguire as the web-slinger, after the latter suffered a back injury and was advised not to do the project. However, Maguire made a quick recovery and was able to do it. But Gyllenhaal isn’t disappointed. Quote: “The truth of the matter is, in the end, [Tobey Maguire is] Spider-Man.”
