  1. Loved this post Jenny! I have an awesome one for you. The guy that plays Hannah Montana’s brother, Jackson, was really 29 at the very start of the series. He’s 36 now. This post has made me really want to go watch Grease 2 & The Breakfast Club x

    1. Thanks Sharon! I didn’t know about Jackson, he must look young. Better than looking 30 when you’re 20! Grease 2 and The Breakfast Club are such epic films, and I’m glad that people who didn’t know about The Breakfast Club are finding out about it from Pitch Perfect ๐Ÿ™‚ x

    1. I know, especially Rizzo: she was the age I am now! I’d never be able to pull off being a 16 year old, but we buy it every time we watch it! ๐Ÿ™‚ x
