Pop culture website, Vulture has interviewed screenwriters from 2014's most acclaimed movies about the toughest scenes they ever had to write. Among the ones they've interviewed were The Fault in Our Stars' Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber. It was revealed later on that the scene they had a difficult time writing down was Hazel (Shailene Woodley) and Augustus's (Ansel Elgort) dinner in Amsterdam. Scott's father died of cancer in the week TFIOS was published and knew a few weeks later that they had to adapt it. The grief and sadness translated in the words were real. Despite the romantic setting, finality was still in the minds of Gus and Hazel so they talk about afterlife during dinner.

"Big questions, big themes; not exactly your typical teenage dinner conversation. But these are not your typical teenagers," the writers said. "Though they live their lives refusing to let their disease define them, Hazel and Gus are also acutely aware of their need to accelerate a lifetime of experience into what little time is left. Something the rest of us never do. But maybe should."

Rumors said that T-Swizzle wanted to date Brad, but she was turned down. During his guesting on The Howard Stern Show, the American Hustle actor said of the stories, "That's horse sh*t. Never got a call [from Taylor]. Nothing."

Kevin Jonas finally reveals why the Jonas Brothers (his band with younger bros Joe and Nick) broke up in 2013 in an interview with HuffPost Live. "Being able to play shows and travel together was great, but then once at the end there, the friction was too much and we just really needed to break away and kind of do our own things for some time," he said. The three bros are now in good terms with each other which is great, right? Watch the interview below. Kev talks about the breakup after the 10:34 mark.
