Teaser Trailer: HBO's Wizard Of Lies



The film stars Robert De Niro as businessman Bernard Madoff, who is currently serving a 150 years sentence in federal prison for the operation of a Ponzi scheme that is considered the largest financial fraud in U.S. history. Michelle Pfeiffer plays his wife Ruth Madoff.

The Wizard of Lies premieres this May on HBO.

Have you ever fallen victim to a Ponzi scheme, ONTD? If not, perhaps a Pyramid Scheme? Share your stories in the comments!

Note: Apparently, Madoff is running a racket on the inside where he's cornered the market on Swiss Miss packets from the commissary & is turning a profit. Once a schemer, always a schemer.

Shots Fired: Emma Watson Implies Belle Is A Better Role Model Than Cinderella



In the latest issue of Total Film, Emma Watson talks about why she turned down the role of Cinderella in the 2015 film starring Lily James and Cate Blanchett and directed by Kenneth Branagh.

"I didn't know they were going to make Beauty and the Beast at the time I turned down Cinderella, but when they offered me Belle, I just felt the character resonated with me so much more than Cinderella did. She remains curious, compassionate and open-minded. And that's the kind of woman I would want to embody as a role model, given the choice. There’s this kind of outsider quality that Belle had, and the fact she had this really empowering defiance of what was expected of her. In a strange way, she challenges the status quo of the place she lives in, and I found that really inspiring. She manages to keep her integrity and have a completely independent point of view. She’s not easily swayed by other people’s perspective—not swayed by fear-mongering or scapegoating."
