This is the most wonderful thing we've heard all week.

We can't imagine what Ronan Farrow is going through right now.
On Sunday, Ronan Farrow paid tribute to his late brother Thaddeus Farrow. The touching message comes on the heels of Farrow's shocking suicide last week.
In the emotional Instagram post, the political guy shares two throwback photos of the pair in addition to a heartbreaking caption testifying to the 27-year-old's resilience. Considering T.F. was paraplegic and a polio survivor, the note makes perfect sense.
Check out the full message (below):
Well, this is disappointing.
"What I love about Woody Allen is that he's never putting anything on. He's never fake and he's exactly who he is through and through. For me, I have the highest respect of anyone who is truly themselves. He even runs his set in a way that is truly him. He's super-resourceful and he's not over the top."
It's unnerving to hear the actress gush over someone who's been repeatedly accused of sexual misconduct. Earlier this year, Ronan Farrow, Dylan's brother, even wrote an essay slamming Hollywood stars who still choose to work with the director, because by doing so they were actively endorsing him and his earlier actions.
Miley herself is a vocal advocate against injustice, and recently said she wouldn't do red carpets anymore because there were so many bigger issues in the world.
How can she be critical of red carpets but not of a man who has repeatedly been accused of child molestation? It doesn't make any sense.
Though it's too late to back out of the series now, we hope the 23-year-old thinks about her actions going forward.

Woody Allen wishes to be removed from this narrative.
As you know, the director's estranged son Ronan Farrow released a poignant essay back in May on the alleged sexual abuse the Oscar-winner inflicted upon his sister, Dylan Farrow. Allen responded shortly after by saying he has "so moved on" and he "never thinks about it." Hmm.
In a new interview with The Guardian, the 80-year-old reiterated the point that he doesn't want to be bothered with the allegations that have been following him for years.
Dismissing the abuse claims as "tabloid stupidity," the annoyed Café Society narrator — who was described by the interviewer as "weary, sad, flat" — said:
Cannes was certainly not drama free this year as a rape joke at the opening ceremony and a letter penned by Ronan Farrow thrust the allegations of sexual assault against Roman Polanski and Woody Allen back into the headlines.
As a result, several actors who've worked with Allen have since been asked about the separate controversies. On Monday, Adrien Brody addressed the topic on Jenny McCarthy's radio show Dirty, Sexy, Funny, and suggested that an artist's personal life should be separated from their body of work. Oh no.
In case you forgot, Brody won an Oscar for his role in Polanski's film The Pianist and previously made Midnight In Paris with Allen. The A-lister explained:
On Sunday, The Meddler actress told the world how she really feels about the controversial director during Variety and Kering's Women in Motion sit down with her Thelma & Louise costar Geena Davis at the Cannes Film Festival. Whoa.
The 69-year-old shared:
Even though the 80-year-old is out promoting his new flick Cafe Society at the film festival, he already commented on Ronan's essay claiming he's "said everything [he has] to say about" the situation. However, he apparently hasn't done all he has to do!
That's because it's now being reported that Allen's publicist, Leslee Dart, banned
When it comes to jokes about rape, Blake Lively isn't laughing.
Over a Thursday lunch for the filmmaker's new movie Café Society, the 28-year-old said it was "disappointing" when MC Laurent Lafitte made a dig at Allen's sexual abuse accusations.
She told Variety:
