JK Rowling believes that she made a mistake by not having Hermione Granger and Harry Potter end up together forever in her best-selling books.

The author disclosed that she brought Hermione and Ron Weasley together for “very personal reasons,” not because they were a “credible” couple.

Harry Potter and Hermione

She said this weekend in an interview: "I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment. That's how it was conceived, really."

“For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it, Hermione ended up with Ron."

Rowling revealed in an epilogue to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the series' seventh and final installment, that Ron and Hermione were endgame.

They were to marry and have two children, while Harry would wed Ron’s younger sister, Ginny. That's all she wrote ... until she changed her mind?

The novelist has now said that she believes Ron and Hermione would have ended up needing relationship counseling, The Sunday Times reported.

A few weeks after the Golden Globe Awards recognized Woody Allen with a lifetime achievement award, his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow has spoken out.

Hollywood it should be ashamed of itself, Dylan believes, because the acclaimed movie director sexually abused her when she was a child.

In 1992, Dylan's mother Mia made the same allegation, but prosecutors chose not to pursue charges because Dylan was too "fragile" to go through a trial at the time.

In an open letter to The New York Times, Dylan wrote the following Saturday:

"When I was seven years old, Woody Allen took me by the hand and led me into a dim, closet-like attic on the second floor of our house."

"He told me to lay on my stomach and play with my brother’s electric train set. Then he sexually assaulted me."

Movie Fanatic reports that in casting Eisenberg as Luthor, as a contemporary of Clark Kent, the film has cast appropriately cast a Henry Cavill peer.

The red band trailer for Seth MacFarlane's absurdist comedy-western A Million Ways to Die in the West has arrived, and it's as zany as you think it is.

The film, as advertised, show us plenty of ways to meet an early demise, be it getting pummeled by a block of ice, shot in a duel, impaled by a bull, OD'ing, etc.

Check it out below, but be forewarned ... it's from Seth MacFarlane! Like the Shakira-Rihanna music video from earlier, it's NSFW to put it mildly:

MacFarlane directed, produced, co-wrote and stars in the film as a cowardly sheep farmer who backs out of a gunfight and loses his lady love (Amanda Seyfried).

However, he falls for a new love interest (Charlize Theron) who helps him find courage but brings baggage in the form of an outlaw husband (Liam Neeson).

For those who find MacFarlane's comedy genius, A Million Ways to Die is sure to be a crowd pleaser. For those who don't care for it ... well, it is what it is!

Follow the link to watch Family Guy online for all the classic episodes Seth has written over the years, or watch Ted online for his most recent film creation.

That stuffed bear has one memorably foul mouth.
