I swear to gods, if Lionsgate release another teaser trailer, I’ll burn everything.
Teared up when I saw the statue of Genie atop one of the shops in Downtown Disney. Robin Williams’ death still profoundly affects me.
Knockturn Alley in Universal Studios was one of my favorite parts of Diagon Alley. AMAZING.
Harry Potter Vacation!
I haven’t been on in a few days because I’ve taken a trip to Universal Studios to see Harry Potter land. It was amaaaazing. Pics will come soon, as well as a glimpse into the park! Thanks!
But I said to Arthur, my American editor - we had an interesting conversation during the editing of seven - the moment when Harry takes Draco's wand, Arthur said, God, that's the moment when the ownership of the Elder wand is actually transferred? And I said, that's right. He said, shouldn't that be a bit more dramatic? And I said, no, not at all, the reverse. I said to Arthur, I think it really puts the elaborate, grandiose plans of Dumbledore and Voldemort in their place. That actually the history of the wizarding world hinged on two teenage boys wrestling with each other. They weren't even using magic. It became an ugly little corner tussle for the possession of wands. And I really liked that - that very human moment, as opposed to these two wizards who were twitching strings and manipulating and implanting information and husbanding information and guarding information, you know?

You simply need to tell your daughters not to be like Jennifer Lawrence.
Tell them not to be beautiful, because then it’s inevitable that strangers will think of you as nothing but a meatsack.
Tell them not to be intelligent. Maths, sciences, arts, humanities – being clever is useless if you’re still female underneath.
Tell your daughters there is no point in being an Oscar winner. To achieve success in your chosen trade or profession, and to be recognised for it, cannot cure the disability of your sex.
It doesn’t matter how beautiful, moral, bright, pleasant or useful you are. If you are female, you will have trouble every day of your life.
After all, it would be too much to expect the handful of men responsible for it to behave better, be arrested, or be the least bit sorry."
