Saoirse Ronan had a pretty random question put to her by W Magazine but she totally went with it in this pretty adorable video. 

The 21-year-old Carlow actress was asked to name her favourite sex scene in a film and then went on to describe the clip in hilarious detail. 

The Brooklyn actress totally owned it though as she described a comedic scene been Kristin Wiig and Will Forte in 2010 comedy film MacGruber. 

"I think it's wonderful," said Saoirse as she dons an inexplicable peroxide blonde wig. 

"That always makes me laugh." 

Saoirse is currently on a pretty exhausting press stint ahead of her nomination at the Academy Awards which takes place next month. 

Watch the exact scene she is describing below: 



Is there any limit to Saoise Ronan's talents?

She has just been nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance in Brooklyn and it now turns out that the Irish actress can also sing. 

In a video for W Magazine, a number of famous faces were asked to reinterpret Drake's stellar tune, Hotline Bling. 

And evidently in good spirits, the Dublin born talent donned a blonde wig and belted out the tune at the top of her lungs. 

While some simply read the lyrics and others attempted to act it out, we just love watching Saoirse having a good time. 

Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen do a pretty hysterical reading but we also love Brie Larson giving the tune socks as well. 

Watch the hilarious video below: 




As if we weren’t already excited about the Ghostbusters remake. Guess who just joined the already A-list filled cast, only our favourite Hemsworth brother (sorry Liam).

Yes, Chris Hemsworth has been announced as joining the female-led cast in the receptionist’s role.

Originally played by Annie Potts, Chris is taking over the role to star alongside Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Melissa McCarthy. 

Confirming the online speculation of whether or not the receptionist role would be included in the remake’s gender-swapping theme, director Paul Feig made the announcement via Twitter.

So now not only do we have the chance to see some of our favourite funny ladies reunited on-screen, there’s going to be bonus hot guys too? Hurrah!

The 2014 world’s sexiest man had reportedly turned down the role earlier in the production process because it wasn’t scripted as a lead role.

Paul and writer Katie Dippold have since, god bless them, made the role more prominent. We applaud his stance; after all, it’s got to be hard to downsize to administrator after previously being demi-god Thor of the Marvel Avengers universe.

And it’s not just Mr Hemsworth that we get to admire in the new Ghostbusters universe. Rumour has it that he may have to share the screen with fellow sexiest man alive alum Channing Tatum. Yes please.

There isn’t an awful lot else known about the reboot, but the director said recently that "I knew I needed four people who were very different and yet would be funny together.”

Nevertheless, the director also faced an awful lot of backlash online since announcing the female-led project. However, as he himself said; “I honestly think it might be the better way to do it. So look, hate me if you will, I don't know what to tell you.”

After casting this Australian heart-throb and with rumours spreading that Mr Channing might join in the fun too, we could never hate you Paul. Never.


Comedy gold is about to hit the silver screen. Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig have teamed up again in A Deadly Adoption, a film made for the notoriously soppy Lifetime TV network.

When news of the film leaked last month, many assumed it was all a big joke, but it appears the film is indeed going to happen… and soon. 

A huge billboard has just gone up on Hollywood Boulevard promoting the TV movie, which will apparently air in the US on Sunday June 20th. 

Reports of a made-for-TV movie staring Will and Kristen first came out on April 1st of this year, and while many concluded it was simply an April Fool's prank, statements from Will and Lifetime soon suggested otherwise.

Both statements indicated that the film would be scrapped now that news had been leaked to the press, and while we're not sure if that was all part of the joke or not, it seems to have been cleared up now.

As die-hard Will Ferrell fans, we couldn’t be happier to hear that the film is finished and is going to be released.

A Deadly Adoption is described as a "‘dramatic thriller," with Kristen and Will playing a couple who befriend a pregnant woman (90210's Jessica Lowndes) because they want to adopt her baby. 

Surely enough, things soon start to go awry. 

Lifetime is known for their melodramatic plots and low budget films, and A Deadly Adoption is said to be a light-hearted take on that style to celebrate Lifetime’s 25th anniversary.

We cannot WAIT for details of an Irish release…


We've always known Kristen Wiig was an amazing actress and comedienne, but we had no idea that she was an incredible dancer too!

The Bridesmaids star blew viewers away with her surprise interpretive dance performance during Sia's live rendition of Chandelier at last night's Grammy Awards. Kristen, along with Sia's 12-year-old dance protégé Maddie Ziegler, treated the audience to an incredible mix of the Chandelier and Elastic Heart choreography.

Given her years of writing and performing in sketches on Saturday Night Live, you'd be forgiven for thinking Kristen was going to break into some kind of hilarious spoof-y dance, but that was TOTALLY not the case. In fact, most viewers had no idea it was even Kristen on the stage until the song was over.

Could we love her any more?!



When it was announced last year that a third Ghostbusters film was in the pipeline AND that it would have an all-female cast, we just about exploded with excitement

Well, that cast has finally been announced, and it has definitely lived up to expectation. 

As predicted, Melissa McCarthy will star in the Paul Feig-directed movie, alongside comedy heavyweight Kristen Wiig and her fellow SNL stars Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. WIN!

Although the news has not been explicitly confirmed, Paul tweeted this collage of the four actresses yesterday, strongly hinting that they were the chosen stars:

Given that Paul was the mastermind behind Bridesmaids, it's no surprise that he chose to cast Melissa and Kristen together… for their dancing skills if nothing else:

The film is set to be released in July 2016. We can't wait for the first teaser trailer!



Director Paul Feig has finally confirmed the news that Ghostbusters 3 is in the pipeline, after years of speculation.

Bill Murray and co won't be reuniting to flight the slime this time around though – Paul also revealed on Twitter that he'll be using an all-female cast:

No-one's been fully confirmed as yet but there are some pretty solid rumours. Bill Murray himself even had a stab recently at guessing who might star, and we like the combo he came up with: Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Linda Cardellini and Emma Stone. Sounds about right to us!

As Paul was the brain behind Bridesmaids and Arrested Development, it's likely there'll be some big female comedy names in the cast and we definitely have our fingers crossed for Kristen and Melissa.

His writing partner Katie Dipold also wrote The Heat, the hilarious cop comedy starring Melissa along with Sandra Bullock. All very positive signs!

Sadly, the new movie will not be linked to any plotlines from the previous Ghostbusters instalments – which means no Bill or Dan Aykroyd. Boo! 

Still though, we can't wait to see how it'll work with the new cast!



Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader had a very funny reaction when they realise that their interviewer hasn’t seen the movie they are promoting…awkward!

The reporter takes it a little bit better than he should we think – but what can you do but laugh, eh?!

Note to self: when interviewing actors about a movie WATCH THE MOVIE FIRST! 



Sometimes you just need to throw caution to the wind and sing at the top of your lungs to your favourite song. Of course, most of us wait until there's no one else around, but Kristen Wiig would rather do it on a world-famous TV show. Attagirl!

After admitting she didn't really know the song, Kristen agreed to do a duet of Let It Go with Ellen… on air. They mightn't be very talented… or know the words… but the entertainment factor is A1!

We're not sure who did a better job of mangling a well-loved song, Kristen, or this little girl… 

It's a tough one to call!



We loved Bridesmaids, we really did, so we are VERY excited about the news that Kristen Wiig is teaming up with her Bridesmaids co-writerAnnie Mumolo, to create another brilliant comedy.

The pair are going to be writing and starring in the flick, and apparently Wiig will be making her directorial debut on the project.

They sound almost as excited as we are in their statement:

“We’re very excited to be writing. We will be going into a cave for months to finish. An actual cave. We found one that’s nice and big. We’re putting a couch in there.”

The film doesn’t have a title yet, but it’s about two best friends who are in over their head.

Sounds good to us!



If you need a giggle this morning, watch these! So. Funny.

Bridesmaids‘ Kristen Wiig does her best impression of One Direction’s Harry Styles on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show and it’s hilarious.

And if you want more laughs,  see Jimmy Fallon and his Ragtime group take on R. Kelly’s hit, Ignition.

We would actually buy that record!
