The Cambridges Are Probably Done Having Kids - Here's Why
There's no doubt that Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge have an incredibly adorable family. Between future heir Prince George, scene-stealing Princess Charlotte, and sweet baby Prince Louis, the royal couple certainly have their hands full with their young family. With a royal baby on the way for Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan, some are wondering whether or not William and Kate will have any more children.

As most members of the royal family tend to do when it comes to personal matters, the couple have remained private as to whether or not they plan to grow their family any further. However, it seems pretty unlikely for a few different reasons. From a simple health perspective, it seems like it would probably be a very frustrating experience for the duchess.

It's Basically Impossible to Spot This Inside Joke Lurking in M. Night Shyamalan's Glass
Director M. Night Shyamalan has finally finished his Eastrail 177 Trilogy - which consists of Unbreakable, Split, and, now, Glass - wrapping up the stories of superhumans David Dunn (Bruce Willis), Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson), and Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy). The latter suffers from dissociative identity disorder, with 24 individual personalities living within his psyche, making McAvoy's performance nothing short of astounding.

While sitting down with Fandango, the director explained how one of Kevin's many personalities, a Southern man identified as "Luke," is actually a nod to the film's real-life editor, Luke Ciarrocchi. Apparently Ciarrocchi has a notorious habit of spoiling the ends of films for his friends, which is why Shyamalan has McAvoy-as-Luke say in Glass, "Everybody knows the priest dies at the end of The Exorcist."

Ray Romano and Mark Duplass Form an Unlikely Friendship in Netflix's Paddleton

In between all the big-budget sci-fi thrillers on Netflix's roster, like Bird Box and Io, is Mark Duplass's quiet Sundance drama about two misfit neighbors who end up forming an unlikely, but nevertheless heartwarming, bond.

The film, Paddleton, sees Ray Romano and writer-director Mark Duplass playing said neighbors, who find themselves leaning on each other when the younger of the two, Michael (Duplass), is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Because of the brutal chemo process, Michael decides he's going to end things on his own terms, enlisting the help of his best friend, played by Romano, to join him on a road trip to procure medication that will . . . well, you know.

This Photo of Amanda Seyfried Sitting With Her 2 Movie Dads at the Airport Just Made My Day
Pierce Brosnan was lounging at the Geneva Airport in Switzerland when he very casually bumped into Amanda Seyfried and Hugh Jackman. The actor shared a sweet photo from the chance encounter and wrote, "Love you both and all the work that you do." Hugh also shared the same photo and wrote, "Our daughter," while Amanda did the same and added, "Lucky daughter."

Between the three of them, they share four movies in common: Amanda and Pierce both appeared in Mamma Mia! and Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, and Amanda and Hugh costarred in Les Misérables and Pan. What's crazier, however, is that Amanda played both Pierce and Hugh's daughters in various films - hence Hugh's caption. In the Mamma Mia! franchise, Pierce's character Sam is the stepfather and potential biological father to Amanda's character Sophie. In Les Misérables, Hugh's Jean Valjean looks after Amanda's Cosette like a father after her biological mother dies.

Ted Danson's Floss Dance Has Improved Astronomically Since He First Learned It
Few things in this world are as precious as the sight of Ted Danson doing the floss. In case you missed it, the 71-year-old actor was filmed back in November trying to learn how to "floss" - which is basically a dance where you move your hips side to side while swinging your arms in the opposite direction. Ted's costars on NBC's The Good Place were giving him a thorough tutorial on how to master the jig. And after a couple of months of practice, he took his skill from the 'gram to late-night television.

During his Tuesday appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the host showed the clip of Ted first learning how to floss. Ted then excitedly got up and showed the world that he's now fine-tuned his technique and can still get down with the best of them - sort of. Although his floss has improved, there's
