Btw is anyone else tired of movies with ensemble casts??

I think Lala has a bigger part this go 'round.
Remember this is for the new movie...not the old one.

Once, Vanity Fair had on the cover several new actors and actresses who had just done a movie and VF claimed they were the future big actors of our time or some crap like that. I think it was Emily Stone, Andrew Garfield, that girl who was friends with Juno on that pregnant story movie and others. When you opened the magazine, you found an interview with each one of them in a page plus a pic covering half of the page....... Then on the top corner of one page there was a tiny pic of Gabourey Sidibe.

I find it funny that fans are calling it disappointing but no one slams magazine when blacks are not on the cover, or are always on the back in the pictures.
