Watch: Alison Brie hopes ‘Happiest Season’ helps normalize gay couples in film

Nov. 30 (UPI) — Alison Brie hopes her movie Happiest Season helps normalize the depiction of gay couples in film.

During Monday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Brie, 37, discussed Happiest Season, the first holiday romantic comedy to center on a lesbian couple.

Happiest Season is written by Clea DuVall and Mary Holland and directed by DuVall. The movie centers on Abby (Kristen Stewart) and Harper (Mackenzie Davis), a couple who spend Christmas with Harper’s family after Abby learns Harper has not yet come out to her parents.

Brie plays Harper’s sister Sloane in Happiest Season. On Ellen, Brie celebrated the film being the first lesbian rom-com that’s “holiday-themed” and “backed by a studio.”

“It’s groundbreaking but also, it’s about time. I’m shocked that it’s the first,” the star said. “I hope that it normalizes having gay couples at the center of every type of

Alison Brie Recalls Her First Ever Television Role on ‘Hannah Montana’

Alison Brie just shocked a lot of her fans by revealing she was once on Hannah Montana.

The 37-year-old Glow actress opened up in a video interview with Collider about her appearance on the show as Nina, who appeared during the first season. Nina was the girl who Rico payed to pretend to like him in the episode “It’s My Party, and I’ll Lie if I Want To”.

“Working on Hannah Montana was the perfect first job coming out of theater school because it shoots with a live studio audience,” Alison shared. “It was the only show I’ve ever done with a studio audience.”

She added that the huge popularity that encompassed the show hadn’t hit quite yet during season one.

“I couldn’t be more comfortable on a show,” Alison recalled before talking just about how her audition went. “I remember taking a big swing in my audition and

How Brie and Nikki Bella “Let Loose” While Celebrating Their Birthdays

Added the mom to 3-year-old Birdie and nearly 4-month-old Buddy, “So it was kind of our first time to just celebrate, let loose and almost give yourself permission to, like, get smashed.”

The combination of their moms’ day out and having breakfast with their kids made for a “beautiful” birthday, Nikki said. Unfortunately, both Brie’s husband Daniel Bryan (born Bryan Danielson) and Artem were out of town for work, but that didn’t stop them from making the Bellas feel special on their birthdays.

“Bryan hid my gift so I wouldn’t see it before the 21st,” Brie shared. “He wrote me this beautiful card—which, I have to tell you guys, Bryan has always been just amazing at writing really sentimental cards—so he goes, ‘I just really miss you’ and just mushy stuff in the beginning.”

Then, according to Brie, Bryan recommended that she start her morning by enjoying a

Could Netflix Deliver a Glow Movie? Why Alison Brie Feels a “Little Pessimistic” About It

Alison Brie isn’t quite ready to say goodbye to Ruth Wilder.

Glow Canceled After Renewal By Netflix Due To COVID-19

In October, Netflix confirmed the cancelation of Glow despite having previously renewed the series for season four back in 2019. The reason? COVID-19. As a Netflix spokesperson said at the time, the virus “makes shooting this physically intimate show with its large ensemble cast especially challenging.”

The cancelation left Glow with a ton of unexplored and open-ended storylines, which have some fans hoping for a full-length film as the ultimate sendoff. During a recent interview with The Playlist’s The Fourth Wall podcast, Brie, 37, revealed that she’s totally onboard for that idea.

“I certainly think a movie could tie everything up,” she said. “Our creators, Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, are incredible writers. And they’re so devoted to these characters that they created.

Alison Brie Discusses the Possibility of a GLOW Movie

Alison Brie, star of the Netflix show GLOW, recently talked with The Playlist for an upcoming episode of The Fourth Wall podcast about a possible film, following the show’s cancellation in October, Deadline reports.

When the cancellation was announced, star Marc Maron said a follow-up film might be in the works, to tie loose ends left after the abrupt ending. However, Brie seems uncertain about this possibility.

“I’m a little pessimistic about it actually happening just in light of everything that’s gone on this year and how difficult it is to get anything back into production with COVID,” she said.

“So what I’m saying is DON’T hold your breath because if it does happen, it might take a minute,” she said.

Will a ‘GLOW’ Movie Happen? Alison Brie Says ‘Don’t Hold Your Breath’

Click here to read the full article.

Fans of Netflix’s “GLOW” were dealt a wallop of a disappointment last month when the planned fourth and final season of the popular comedy series about women’s professional wrestling was axed due to the pandemic. Cast member Marc Maron shortly thereafter stoked fans’ excitement when he suggested that the best way to wrap the series would be a two-hour movie to give the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling one more shot in the ring. Alison Brie, according to a recent discussion as part of The Playlist’s “The Fourth Wall” podcast, shares that sentiment, but is also pessimistic about the return.

“I certainly think a [‘GLOW’] movie could tie everything up,” said Brie. “Our creators, Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, are incredible writers. And they’re so devoted to these characters that they created. I think a movie would be a great way to wrap it

Alison Brie Says You’re Going To Have To Be Patient For A ‘GLOW’ Movie

A lot of shows have been cancelled during the pandemic, and GLOW, improbably, was one of them. Luckily there’s been a trend for beloved shows that were unceremoniously axed: a movie to wrap things up. Deadwood — one of the all-time great short-sightedly killed programs — got one. Community may get one (though that one’s really taking its time). And now GLOW — Netflix’s beloved female wrestler show — may get one, too. It just may take a bit.

Alison Brie, one of its stars, recently appeared on The Playlist’s podcast The Fourth Wall, where was inevitably asked about doing just a bit more GLOW. Having been on this rodeo before — see: the perpetually stalled Community movie — she was a little resistant to optimism.

“I certainly think a movie could tie everything up,” Brie said. “I’m a little pessimistic about it actually happening just in light

Allison Brie Warned ‘GLOW’ Fans Not To ‘Hold Your Breath’ On A Movie

Of all the surprise decisions Netflix has made about its programming, canceling GLOW an episodes into shooting its fourth season is perhaps the most puzzling. The cancelation news had its list of reasons, of course — shooting during a pandemic would have been difficult and the streaming service often likes to keep show runs short in favor of greenlighting new ideas — but each time a less-beloved show gets renewed the talk of GLOW getting another chance pops back up again.

There’s even some talk of a GLOW movie to wrap things up, as show star Marc Maron suggested shortly after it officially got the axe. But another star of the show, Allison Brie, is being careful not to get fans too excited about that possibility just yet. Brie has done a number of pandemic-altered promotional tasks for works shot prior to the COVID-19 era, and a reported appearance on

Alison Brie on a Possible GLOW Movie: ‘Don’t Hold Your Breath’

One of the more recent casualties of Netflix’s new harsh habit of canceling shows unceremoniously is GLOW, which, rather than being canceled, was actually ‘un-renewed.’ Which is to say it had already been picked up for a fourth and final season before Netflix changed its mind and pulled the plug completely, leaving fans in limbo with an unfinished story.Obviously, in times like these, viewers might clamor for that one extra season, even if it’s a shortened version, just to give some closure. Or, in this case, a GLOW wrap up movie, which fans (and star Marc Maron) have asked for.

While talking to The Playlist’s podcast, The Fourth Wall, Brie opened up about the possibility of a movie – and why she’s not exactly counting on it happening.

“I certainly think a [GLOW] movie could tie everything up,” Brie said. “Our creators, Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, are incredible writers.
