Guy Claims He Wrote Good Will Hunting

There's a screenwriter is New York who is claiming that he came up with the idea for Good Will Hunting after he went to MIT and was inspired by a frat brother he knew. Apparently this guy met the producer of GWH at a coffee shop in New York and told him about the idea. He asked for nothing but a thank you when it wins best original screenplay, as well as for the producer to finance this guy's next film. Obviously, he didn't get either -- if this whole thing is real.

Tiffany Haddish vs. TMZ, Round Two 

Remember last week when Tiffany Haddish called out TMZ for standing there and watch her load all of her luggage into her car without offering to help… and then when she was done, they wanted to interview her? Welp he saw her rant and wanted to capitalize on it more so he caught her at the airport again and gave her a rose to apologize. He said he was overwhelmed by her beauty to help her out (she saw right through his BS and laughed it off). I love her.
