Other castmates found out and now Briana, Christina and Jess have resorted to bullying Alexandria on social media while they still remain good friends with Brandon (Shady bitches!). Now, Alexandria is the outcast of the group. Also, her Twitter and IG are gone.

- 12/03/14--15:02: Russell Crowe's directorial debut 'The Water Diviner' premiere
Mark Ruffalo (“Foxcatcher”) & Jessica Chastain (“The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby,” “Interstellar,” “A Most Violent Year”)
Chastain: "For me, rehearsal isn't about going through the script over and over again; it's about going through the script as who I am — not as the character — and saying, what does this line mean and how long have we known each other?"
Ruffalo: "We would start on the script, and then break free, and it wouldn't be much, maybe a little exercise that then (we) would refine. So we were building. And then (director Bennett Miller) would strip out all the dialogue, and it would be a physicalization — you know, hold that moment, don't feel compelled to say anything, but let that improvisation inform what's happening between the two of you."
Keira Knightley (“The Imitation Game,” “Begin Again”) & Ethan Hawke (“Boyhood”)
Knightley: "You always believe the bad (reviews). It's absolutely guaranteed that even if you get all of them good, and if you get one bad one, then it's --
Hawke: "They're the ones who saw the truth."
Christoph Waltz (“Big Eyes”) & Ralph Fiennes (“The Grand Budapest Hotel”)
Waltz: "An audition is an art form in itself. I couldn't teach, because I'd be afraid to overlook a talent. I don't want to be responsible that a gem is being swept under the carpet just because my sensorium is insufficient."
Fiennes: "I need to have a connection. And often if someone does a great reading, (they may not be) quite right, but what you feel is that there's a human connection."
David Oyelowo (“Selma”) & Jack O'Connell (“Unbroken”)
Oyelowo: "I first read the script in 2007, and it took us seven years to get that film made. So many directors came and went. I really feel like it happened at the right time with the right people."
O'Connell: "I got lucky in that I was able to fill in the gaps with his (actual) voice. There was no archive footage or audio of Louis (Zamperini). So I felt quite fortunate that I got to (meet him)."
Michael Keaton (“Birdman”) & Reese Witherspoon (“Wild”)
Keaton: "You could argue that every movie is a journey, but these are really, clearly, journeys. Yours is a straight-ahead 'we're walking' journey, and mine is another kind of journey. And I was looking at this thinking, first of all, I've never seen you like this. I've never seen you look like this and just be. And that's the best thing, just being, you know?"
Witherspoon: "Well, I think the same way of 'Birdman.' The two characters are similar in that they're both warring against themselves. It's sort of self-ego vs. self, self-esteem vs. self, self-harm vs. healthy.
Benedict Cumberbatch (“The Imitation Game”) & Edward Norton (“Birdman”)
Cumberbatch: "The perverse thing is that fame kind of drowns the air you need to create the thing that you made you famous in the first place. You need your space; you need to be able to work at a certain pace — or just be an artist, really — rather than being famous. I'm still adjusting to finding my way around that."
Norton: "Have you ever seen the Maysles Brothers' documentary called 'Meet Marlon Brando'? They followed Brando on a junket for a movie that he didn't really like. And it's this incredible portrait of a guy really, really trying to maintain a grounded authenticity through this completely insane process. You can learn a lot seeing what other people have gone through in a way."
Hilary Swank (“The Homesman”) & Tilda Swinton (“Snowpiercer”)
Swank: "'Boys Don't Cry' was (made for) $1.7 million. I made $3,000 on the movie. (Winning the Oscar meant) this movie was going to be seen by a wider audience, because that was really the prize, in a way."
Swinton: "In a particular world that I work in, which is pretty much exclusively independent, (an Oscar) is such a wonderful outreach tool. It's a resonance; you have to take that seriously. You think, 'Well that's good. That's maybe gonna help the next five tiny films.'"
Timothy Spall (“Mr. Turner”) & Marion Cotillard (“Two Days, One Night”)
Spall: "If it isn't in the story, and you're struggling to find out why that person is doing something, you have to create an imaginative scenario of what it is that's created that effect. You have to work out in your imagination all that is not explained -- and is not going to be explained -- about what creates the quality that makes that person do that."
Cotillard: "There are some emotions that I can reach faster, because I know where to search. I never use my personal life. If I need something to take me to an emotion, I will always use something in the character or I will create it. Like the Dardenne brothers' movie; I didn't have (much) information about (the character of Sandra,) why she got depressed, how it affected her life. And so I needed to create all this."
Jennifer Aniston (“Cake”) & Emily Blunt (“Into the Woods”)
Aniston: "It was incredible to be able to go into ('Cake') and take on that challenge, because those scripts don't come along very often. It wasn't mine, and I had to fight for it. And if the opportunity came, I knew I was going to be able to throw my hat in that ring and take it on and have that journey -- wrapping my head around these unimaginable experiences."
Blunt: "I think typecasting happens all the time, and it might happen a lot more with women. I feel after I did 'Devil Wears Prada,' I got offered to play every acerbic, British b---- out there."
Jake Gyllenhaal (“Nightcrawler”) & Patricia Arquette (“Boyhood”)
Gyllenhaal: A lot of people talk about how disturbing or creepy the character is. And ultimately, I think he's very vulnerable and he's violently protecting something."
Arquette: "The weird thing about this movie, because we didn't have a full script to begin with -- we had an anatomy -- was you had to have flexibility. Usually as an actor, you make specific choices and depend on your script and on knowing everything about why (a choice is) the right choice to make."
Laura Dern (“Wild”) & Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”)
Dern: "David Lynch has been a huge inspiration for me, because I started working with him at 17, and to come into the very beginning of your active life with someone who requires you to be your most authentic in a world that is completely absurd is such an amazing discipline. So I think it's helped me try to remain honest in a very different kind of discipline, because everything is so extreme, and I have to go wherever he needs me."
Redmayne: "With theater, if you screw it up one night, you can come and try something else the next. With film, you can't; you only have that set amount of takes. And James Marsh, who directed 'Theory,' was so wonderful about emboldening you to make mistakes. We'd come up with these things, and some of them would completely fail. Normally a director will then go, 'Okay, gotta move on; tried it.' But he would be like, 'Try again.' And that's so liberating."
Josh Brolin (“Inherent Vice”) & J.K. Simmons (“Whiplash”)
Brolin: "People want to be in this spiritual or mental state of gratitude (where) you don't (rest) on your laurels, and you actually treat every job as if you've never had a job, in order to keep working hard, and to keep it fresh. I always feel that way. I can't help it."
Simmons: "I did a lot of work, and fun work, and work with great people, and kind of learned by doing on the way up. If somebody had given me a film when I was 25 years old, I would have crashed and burned."
Jenny Slate (“Obvious Child”) & Felicity Jones (“The Theory of Everything”)
Slate: "One of the rewards of doing a good job ... is that you gain the luxury of preference. And I like that. I know a bit more what I want, and I would love to just be able to make more choices. That sounds so simple, but that's the goal. Rather that just say, 'Yeah, I'll be there, whatever it is.'"
Jones: "It's funny, no matter how much you do, you always get to the end of a film, and you think, 'Is this going to be the last one?' And you always have that period of unemployment in between, and you do feel like you keep going back to square one. Even though I've been doing it for 15 years."
Oscar Isaac (“A Most Violent Year”) & Gugu Mbatha-Raw (“Belle,” “Beyond the Lights”)
Isaac: "I loved going to acting school. It was interesting that a lot of people that came straight from high school, and also minority students and such, would have a particularly difficult time with the dialect classes and the language classes, because there was a real sense of, 'Are you trying to take my identity away from me?'"
Mbatha-Raw: "About drama school ... You can't really learn how to act, I guess. It's more about acquiring those skills. I was one of those people that came straight from school; I auditioned when I was 17. And I got in and went when I was 18. It was weird, because I had grown up in the countryside, and it was my first time moving to the city, to London, and going to drama school. And I was one of the youngest in my year."
Chadwick Boseman (“Get on Up”) & Logan Lerman (“Fury”)
Boseman: "I was given a whole bunch of footage, and eventually I was given some people to talk to that knew (James Brown) -- family members and friends, road manager -- to get a sense of different perspectives on him, because he seemed to be (someone) that one person would say one thing about him, another person would say another thing. It left room for me to make some choices with this role."
Lerman: "We had a lot of time in prep to really learn the history and learn about the tanks and meet with World War II veterans. We had four to five months before filming. And we just dedicated a lot of time to bringing authenticity to the film."

Some days ago Diane posted a cute selfie of her and Josh with Santa hats, she and Joshua took it while in Paris. “It’s happening!! #XMascardselfie,” Diane captioned the photo on her Instagram. In hashtag format she wrote, “Missing only on every important family member.” (she meant their cat Hobbes) She's in France filming a movie and Hobbes stayed in LA, so she complains very often on her insta of how much she misses him.
Source - paraphrased by me.
When you go through hard times, you find out who your true friends are, and Serena Williams was one of the first people to be there for me when my engagement unraveled last spring. She didn’t have to support me—she has her own life, her own problems and her own career to worry about—but she was there when I needed someone to lean on the most. We talked on the phone, and she told me that it was going to be hard to recover, but that when I did get to the other side, I was going to be a stronger person. And now I am.
On the court in 2014, Serena did not have the greatest year by her Hall of Fame standards. There were injury withdrawals, the illness at Wimbledon and early exits at a handful of tournaments. But she also won a singles title at the U.S. Open—the 18th Grand Slam of her career—and six other WTA titles, including the Miami Open, the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati and the Brisbane International in Australia. It’s just so impressive that she has been so good for as long as she has. This is her 18th year on the Tour, and she’s averaged 3.6 tournament wins each year, for a total of 64. But it’s not just her athletic accomplishments that are admirable. She inspires me as a person as well, and that’s why I’m choosing Serena as my Sportswoman of the Year.
Serena is always concerned about her family and friends. She stays true to her word and never changes her personality for anyone or anything. Throughout her career she has remained consistent as a person, and I think that is really admirable.
I find Serena to be a great role model for young kids, whether they have aspirations to play professional tennis or not. When it came to off-court business interests, she didn’t simply sell her name to a manufacturer, she started her own clothing line—and not only helped design the products but also took a hand in establishing the styling and branding of the operation. Also, it’s so important to engage with fans, and she is always signing autographs and taking pictures with a smile. Her charity fund, The Serena Williams Foundation, has done everything from supporting two schools in Kenya to giving scholarships in the U.S. to providing disaster relief in Haiti. She and her sister Venus have even helped revamp a tennis center in Washington, D.C. Serena’s efforts to give back to others are such a positive representation of tennis as a sport.
When we’re facing one another on the court, we are battling for the same prize and we do our best against each other because we want to win. Everything else is put aside. At the year-end championships in Singapore in October, she beat me in the semifinals, 7–6 in the third set, and then went on to win the event. It was a tough loss for me, and it still stings, but it wasn’t the only time she got the better of me. I lost to her four times this year: at the Rogers Cup in Montreal, at the Western & Southern, in the final at the U.S. Open and in Singapore. She’s easily been my toughest competitor this season.
When you play against Serena, you are playing against a fighter and a fierce competitor, but off the court, she is great to the fans and her friends and family. I think that shows a great athlete and a proper champion.
My only problem with Serena is that I’m tired of losing to her. So I told her, Watch out, I’m coming for you in 2015.
Here they are hanging out today.
We should be sleeping but we are playing around. #iptl #breakthecode #mybff

Maisie had this to say to IGN:
“There was a whole thing that went on Twitter [of fans suggesting me for the role]," she explained. I didn’t know a lot about [the game]. I Googled it. Ashley Johnson — who did Ellie’s voice — [fans] asked her what she thought of me and she said, ‘That’s pretty much my dream.’ I don’t follow her but I was silently stalking her wondering what she thought of all this.
"And when I got my American agent and he said, ‘If there’s anything you want to do, let us know’ — America’s got such that can-do attitude. That was the first time I came to him with anything. So he said he’d set us up for a meeting next time I’m in America. And they did. So I had a meeting with [producer] Sam Raimi and [game director] Neil Druckmann. And they said they’d love if you would moderate the panel at Comic-Con, but you’d need to watch the walk-through and know your s*** because there are massive fans of this and we wouldn’t want it to go wrong.
"I was doing so much work for Thrones that I didn’t want to half-arse do it, so I said I’m not going to [moderate]. They said fine, but they’re gonna announce they had talks. So the way it was left is they want me to do it, and I want to do it. But there’s no script, no director, and no anything else. So at this moment, it’s looking like, ‘Yes,’ but it’s still such early days. If they make it in 30 years, they can’t have a 40-year-old Ellie. So at the moment, it’s looking good, and I’d love to do it. Hell yeah.”
