Recently it has come to my attention that the music, style and fashion of the 1990’s is all around us. The Spice Girls, The Backstreet Boys, 98 Degrees and Destiny’s Child are all reuniting and Eminem has once again bleached his hair. The VMA’s provided a ’90s flashback that included an NSYNC performance, TLC’s Chilli and T-Boz presenting an award and Miley Cyrus rocking the ’90s mini-buns. With this is mind, today’s Throwback Thursday post will focus on the Top 3 Women who ruled as leading ladies in some of the best romantic comedies of the 1990s.
1. Meg Ryan
2. Sandra Bullock
3. Julia Roberts
Julia Roberts is one of those all too rare A-list actors; she does not have a reality TV show, she doesn’t contact the paparazzi and she hasn’t tried to come out with her own perfume line – that, ladies and gents, is what we call class in 2013. Julia cemented her place in our hearts throughout the 1990s as a hooker with a heart of gold (before it was cliché) alongside Richard Gere in Pretty Woman(1990). She furthered her career as a leading lady in films such as My Best Friend’s Wedding(1997), Runaway Bride(1999), Notting Hill(1999) and of course, the ultimate tear jerker, Stepmom(1998). That laugh, that smile, that hair! She was ’90s perfection.
May 12th: Iron Man 3 continued to dominate at the box office, making another bajillion dollars this weekend. The real story, however, is the runner-up – Baz Luhrmann’s sexy The Great Gatsby update starring hot young(ish) things Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire, which defied expectations with $51.1 million in its debut frame. You know what this means? Coming spring 2015: Howard’s End starring Justin Beiber and Kim Kardashian. Source: Box Office Mojo
May 11th: The imminent Star Wars VII will be filmed in the UK, according to BBC. Tagline: Keep Calm and Boba Fett on. Source: BBC
May 10th: The trailer for the film adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize winning play, August: Osage County, hit the internet this week. The film, starring Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Chris Cooper, Juliette Lewis and Abigail Breslin centers on a family that converges at home after the death of its patriarch for dysfunction, laughter, tears and lots and lots of Oscars.

May 9th: Director Joe Wright has emerged as a strong contender for the big screen adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey. Wright was thrilled announcing “I was hoping that the Academy Award winning adaptations of Atonement and Anna Karenina would, one day, lead to my big break in porn.” Source: The Hollywood Reporter
May 9th: Old School co-stars Vince Vaughn and Will Ferrell will reteam for Daddy’s Home, about a family man (Ferrell) whose life is turned upside down when his wife’s ex-husband (Vaughn) moves in with them. Old School 2 seems like Amour by comparison. Source: Variety
May 9th: In other trailer news, the preview for Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock sent the interweb into a tizzy this week. The imminent alien attack can be attributed to extraterrestrials’ assumption that all humans have excellent cheek bones and are ageless. Source: Entertainment Weekly
May 8th: Marvel’s The Avengers writer-director Joss Whedon has taken to his blog to set straight the rumor that he was making upwards of $100 million for Avengers 2. Although the fact that he wrote the blog entry on a laptop made out of pure gold and lined with an ivory keyboard, isn’t helping his case (In other news: Joss Whedon Rules!). Source: Whedonesque
May 6th: Clueless director Amy Heckerling will join forces with Jada Pinkett-Smith and latino soap star William Levy for the appropriately titled Salsa, about a woman who reaches a turning point in her life through the art of, well, salsa dancing. Will it be a hit? Como si!
