Jenny's Wedding Trailer


To Jenny's family, she's always been somewhat of a loner. Even though she's the oldest sibling, as far as they're aware she still lives a bachelorette lifestyle with her roommate in the city.

When Jenny returns home for the christening of the newest member of their family, it doesn't take her mother and father long to start the usual 'when are you going to find a man and settle down' lecture. Finally caving to their questioning, Jenny lets slip that she is in a relationship and that this partner might just be the one that she's ready to settle down with. What all Jenny's family don't know is that her partner is actually her current roommate Kitty.

After years of living together and being open about their relationship with their city friends, Jenny comes out to her parents and announces her wish to marry the love of her life. Having lived a sheltered existence, this comes as a huge shock to Eddie and Rose and neither know how to take the news - asking Jenny to keep her partner a secret. As time passes and the lie becomes unmanagable, the Farrell family find themselves being pulled apart.

'Gilmore Girls' creator Amy Sherman-Palladino may have disappointed us recently with the news that there will be no revival of the iconic series, but the screenwriter is currently working on a musical - though we're yet to find out what it will be about.

Former Gilmore Girl Alexis Bledel is married to Vincent Kartheiser.

Cold Feet? Dakota Johnson CouldFollow Charlie Hunnam In 'Fifty Shades' Exit


Dakota Johnson Charlie Hunnam E.L. James Sam Taylor-Wood Matt Bomer Alexis Bledel Cillian Murphy Ryan Gosling Brad Pitt

It was going rather well for the Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson and her team: after what seemed like ages they'd managed to pull off a great casting decision, choosing two actors on the cusp of big-time fame. However, they were not only hit by a 90k strong petition telling them their choice was wrong; they had to say goodbye to Charlie Hunnam, AKA Christian Grey, and learn their Anastasia Steele, Dakota Johnson, had a touch of the heebie jeebies too.

Dakota Johnson Could Be Thinking Of Leaving '50 Shades.'

Sons of Anarchy star Hunnam's exit was confirmed earlier this week due to an "immersive TV schedule" that would prevent the actor from being able to fully prepare for the role of Christian Grey. The film took a hit, author EL James sent her best, and fans began to wonder whether Hunnam had secretly been influenced by the petition launched to replace him and Johnson with Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel.

Finally! Charlie Hunnam Addresses His '50 Shades' Role As Cast-Change Petition Reaches 75K Signatures

If the prospects of having to get his kit off many times on screen as well as learn how to deftly wield whips and paddles may have flustered Charlie Hunnam, the actor who'll play Fifty Shades of Grey's Christian Grey, then the news that over 75,000 furious 50 Shades readers had taken their discontentment towards him playing the lead male role to Change.org to demand a casting reshuffle, should by rights make him feel practically terrified.

However, it seems that the 33 year-old English actor could not be more confident in his skills, and quite probably takes all the petitioning and hate tweeting as a challenge to be the best Grey possible. Describing his experience of the hotly anticipated adaptation of EL James' erotic trilogy so far as "exciting and fun and weird and compelling," there's little sense of fear or trepidation in Hunnam's words as he talks to Hollywood Life.
