    Meryl is so overrated, and Nicole looks like she went to Michael Jackson's surgeon.

    Not the shade Barbara's memory, but I'd assume this would be on file somewhere in the zoo maybe? Surely this incident would've been reported or something

    Sad that she is pronouncing her own name improperly. I guess it makes sense because she didn’t grow up here in Hawaiʻi, so she probably didn’t get a chance to learn the correct pronunciation. Graham actually pronounced it pretty accurately a couple of times. Ho-coo-luh-nee is how to properly say it.

    Traitor. All this time we in Australia have called Nicole Kidman an Australian, but she was born in America. Disgusting

      Lily K no I shall not. A person is from the country they are born in. She was born in America, therefore she's American. My whole life we've called her an Aussie. My whole life has been a lie

    "It happened in 1970 and Barbara remembers it like it was yesterday"
    Plot twist: Barbara is an elephant.
    Plot twist II: She's the elephant who pushed Okolani.

    Graham Norton's real Surname is Walker. I met him a few times when he came into the Launderette in Bow, East London. We both used to sit in the chairs and just pray for our wash cycle to end so that we could sod off home.

    Nicole Kidman is so unbelievably beautiful, and natural which is where her real beauty lies.
    And you know it’s lucky Nicholes parents told her the truth... because these guys did their research. THATS the kind of thing parents say when they don’t have a real reason and it’s BS 😕
