From Rumer Willis to Maya Hawke: All the Famous Kids in Once Upon a Time... in Hollywood
Quentin Tarantino‘s Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood takes place in Tinseltown and brings to life some of Hollywood’s most famous personalities.

From Steve McQueen to Bruce Lee to Sharon Tate, Tarantino, 56, takes audiences through an epic era in Hollywood — and it makes sense the auteur would include as many A-listers as possible, including their kids.

Rumer Willis stars in the film as Joanna Pettet, a close friend of Tate’s (played by Margot Robbie).

“Big Brother 21” premieres next week, but we got to meet the 16 new houseguests live and, well, on our screens Monday during their pre-season interviews with Jeff Schroeder on CBS All Access. If you didn’t tune in to the four-hour affair, fret not, we’ve got you covered below. Here are our first impressions of these newbies, who own lots of dogs and will miss them very much this summer.

Analyse Talavera

A fan since she was 10, Analyse wants to play like Kaycee last season, but she’s also “competitive and athletic” like Angela, so she thinks that’ll be her downfall. She also hopes there are cute guys and she may or may not know who Anna Faris is after Jeff said her name is pronounced like Faris’ (Ahn-a-leese). So disrespectful to “The House Bunny.” Analyse’s answers weren’t great and she was uber giggly the whole time,

  • Popsugar
Good news, everyone - Netflix has gifted us with a new obsession (as if we didn't have enough already), and we have a feeling that this one's really going to steal your attention. Trinkets, based on 2013 novel by Kirsten Smith, revolves around three very different sticky-fingered teens whose paths cross in a Shoplifters Anonymous meeting, and as little as they have in common, the one thing they do share brings them together in unexpected ways. And of course there's also plenty of the requisite high school drama and heartbreak in between.

Just like Netflix's über-popular teen-centric series 13 Reasons Why, the source material for this new show also came from a Ya novel of the same name. Trinkets the novel was written by Hollywood screenwriter Smith, who cowrote an impressive range of popular girl-power movies, including Legally Blonde, 10 Things I Hate About You, The House Bunny, She's the Man, and The Ugly Truth.
