Once upon a time, Liam Neeson was rejected on sight for a role in The Princess Bride. The actor dished on the details during the Oct. 9 episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live.
The beloved 1987 movie, which was directed by Rob Reiner, features a slew of quirky fairytale characters. One such character, Fezzik, was portrayed by the late Andre the Giant, who stood at over seven feet tall. Before Andre was cast, however, Liam told Jimmy that he was brought in by casting directors for the part.
“I was quite nervous because I knew this was a big film and stuff. I had met the casting directors in L.A. So I go into the office in London, and Rob Reiner looked at me and said ‘He’s not a giant. What height are you?’ I said ‘Six foot four.’ He said, ‘That’s tall, he’s not a giant,'” Liam

Liam Neeson doesn’t have fond memories of being up for a role in The Princess Bride.
The actor appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! where he recalled the time he met with director Rob Reiner about potentially starring in the hit 1987 movie.
“I didn’t audition, but I was living in London, and I was asked to go meet Rob Reiner, the director, and I was quite nervous, because I knew this was a big film,” Neeson, 68, said.
“I had entered the office in London, and Rob Reiner looked at me and said, ‘He’s not a giant! What height are you?’ I said six foot-four. ‘That’s tall. He’s not a giant!’ ” Neeson recalled the director saying.
“So there was no ‘Hello, thank you.’ I thought, ‘OK, the next time I see Rob Reiner, I’m gonna tell him he was very rude,’ ” Neeson
2020 has been a one-of-a-kind year for Lebanese designer Elie Saab. He started the year off with his spring-summer 2020 Haute Couture runway show in Paris, followed by his women’s autumn-winter 2020 ready-to-wear runway show a month later. Then the pandemic hit the world and hit his native Lebanon hard. And, on August 4th the city of Beirut had an explosion that left the country numb, while Saab has had to deal with damage to his atelier.
However, with all of this, the fifty-six-year-old fashion designer has managed to put one foot ahead of the other and do what he does best- create beautiful fashion designs. In September, he unveiled his autumn-winter 2020-21 Haute Couture collection digitally. And, through digital medium again, he just launched his new spring-summer
A Reddit user was facing criticism last week after seeming to insult his daughter-in-law about how she looked at her “surprise” wedding.
The angry father-in-law posted about the incident on Reddit’s “Am I the A–h—” forum.
According to the user, who has since deleted his account, his son and daughter-in-law were married eight months ago but didn’t tell anyone in advance that their ceremony was happening.
Instead, the bride and groom invited everyone to attend a cocktail party, which was eventually where the couple said “I do.”
The father of the groom explained that his wife unintentionally wore white to the event. In the United States, wedding guests typically tend to avoid wearing white as a means to not distract from the bride.

A bride in Louisiana has her new husband and her faith to thank for the wedding that she feared Hurricane Delta would ruin.
ABC 7 NY reported that Taylor Choate and Ian Gaspard set their wedding date on Oct. 10 months ago. However, as the couple’s big day approached, it was announced that Hurricane Delta would hit Louisiana on their wedding date.

“My Superman here came in and saved the day,” Choate explained.
“He told me that, at the end of the day, we just wanted to get married and it was important that we did it in the church. That was important to our parents and our faith. We were going to
