Friday Night Movies

Friday, August 17th, 2012

This Week’s Big-Screen Goody:

Our celeb correspondent (and Entertainment Tonight cohost) Nancy O’Dell recently had the chance to chat with actress Jennifer Garner. Jennifer’s new Disney movie, The Odd Life Of Timothy Green (Rated PG), is out this weekend, and the star and mom of three was super-psyched to share the modern-day fairy-tale with us. Here’s what she had to say about it:

Are we all going to cry when we see it? Do I need to bring tissues with me?

“I took two mom friends to an early screening before it was done, and they both–even during the happy scenes–cried their heads off. I watched them more than I watched the movie because they were so funny. But in a good way–it made them realize how much they love their kids and their lives. It’s reaffirming. It really is something that everyone who reads Parents magazine should make a point of going to see. If it doesn’t make you cry, call me and I’ll give you a dollar.”

Nancy O’Dell Interviews Ann Romney

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

Nancy O’Dell, our correspondent for all things celeb and cohost of Entertainment Tonight, recently snagged an interview with Ann Romney. She got the Republican front-runner’s wife to open up about raising five sons with Mitt and the now famous “Momgate,” in which a political strategist said that Ann (a stay-at-home mom) had never worked a day in her life. In response to the controversy, Ann tells Nancy that “everyone knows that doing the job of raising kids is one of the hardest jobs we have. And it’s also a job that never ends.” Watch the video clip for yourself by clicking here, and make sure to tune in to the full interview tomorrow on Entertainment Tonight.

What do you think of Momgate? Just another example of playing politics with women’s issues, or a larger issue that merits more discussion in this country? Weigh in now by commenting below. We want to know your thoughts!
