No word yet on the designer, but it’s safe to say this ring cost a bit more than the candy one Turner donned at her first wedding to Jonas back in May.

Pixar has removed a Hollywood “casting couch” joke from Toy Story 2

It’s easy to forget that Pixar used to have its own Marvel-esque tradition of including additional scenes during the credits of its films.
