Try googling the function and the maturation of the frontal lobes of the brain. It'll explain why risks are taken by youth. Of course, it's never for EVERYONE, my son at 19 is way more mature than I was at that age, but that was mainly due to socialization and family dynamics.

It also helps me to understand why I took more risks and why insurance is so HIGH for kids under 25.

Here is a good one:

What a pile of horse hockey. I laugh every time that "statistic" is trotted out on the Dis.

A 22 year old is not a kid, and her age is no excuse for cheating with a married man.

I personally think we need to take this scientific evidence about brain development in slightly smaller sips. If we gulp it down so rapidly it only follows that we reconsider things such as the voting age, the age of majority in regard to legal consequences and the age at which one can apply for military service.

It's not an excuse, don't get your horse hockey( what is that??? ) out of whack.

It's not a statistic, it's a study. I HAAATE statistics. This study makes so much sense, but no, it doesn't excuse behavior. That's why you see 22 year olds spending life in jail for doing something they would've never done at 44.

We have to agree to disagree on this one. Just because an age is legal doesn't make it mature or "grown up". I try to avoid those ages like the plague because I know the choices they make, and I don't want to deal with it anymore. Wisdom is a wonderful thing to inherit with the years, IF you choose to absorb it.

At 22, you are not a kid and are old enough to know what you are doing. I was 19 when a man lied to me and said he was divorced. In reality, his wife was living in another state, so she was easy to hide. I dated him for a bit, found out he was married, and gave him a public butt-chewing he probably still remembers. I told his sorry rear not to apologize to me, because that would do him no good. He needed to apologize and grovel to his WIFE, the one he had wronged by dating me. We hadn't even slept together and I was furious with him for lying to me. I was three years younger than KS and fully aware that you DO NOT date/sleep with married men. So I don't buy the "immature brain" line at all.

Horse hockey is a euphemism for ********.

It is not a study - the link you posted is to a very basic summary of a much more complicated study. The statement "The frontal lobe isn't fully developed until the age of 25" is a statistic. All statistics are derived from studies.

No, but it does make them an "adult."

Apparently Universal Studios has dropped Kristen for the next Snow White installment.

http://movies.yahoo.com/news/kristen...002217084.html

http://omg.yahoo.com/news/report-kri...23.html?_esi=1

If they're truly not going with her because of this whole scandal (and not her crappy acting), then I would hope they'd treat Rupert Sanders the same and not allow him back either. It would seem like a double standard.

The Hollywood fairy has granted my wish...though technically it was that Kristen Stewart would never make another movie, but it's a start!

Wishes can come true!

My guess is that they likely nixed her because her presence on the screen will be a reminder that she fooled around with the married director. That and the fact that she most likely was hired to be Snow White originally because she (amazingly) could bring in the Twilight crowd for ticket numbers. Plain and simple. Now that she's effectively shot herself in her own ****, Universal is looking to their bottom line. The only reason they may not replace Rupert is simply because he's behind the camera, not onscreen.

ETA: Ha, ha, the Disboards censored the word a-r-s-e! And here I was thinking I was clever for not writing a$$!

This comes from the 1st yahoo link:

Universal has decided to shelve its planned Snow White and the Huntsman sequel and is instead focusing on a solo Huntsman movie starring Chris Hemsworth. Kristen Stewart will not be invited to return if the follow-up goes forward.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the sequel to June's Snow White, which starred Stewart, Hemsworth and Charlize Theron, is being reconceived as a spinoff movie. It's unclear whether director Rupert Sanders will return, although one source with ties to the production says he will. However, screenwriter David Koepp, who had been hired to pen the continuation of the original film, is being settled out of his rich contract, according to sources, as the project is being transformed into something other than the movie that Koepp had been hired to write.

We can truely hope that "the" source is wrong, wrong, wrong!!! What a double standard if they can one and not the other. I am not a fan of KS, but this just rubs me the wrong way.

Ugh...the gun has been jumped. According to aint it cool news...

Quote:
UPDATE: The Hollywood Reporter may have jumped the gun with their reports of Kristen Stewart's demise with the SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN series, which means I'm guilty of doing the same. The difference is that I then checked and double-checked through some sources in order to really get the lay of the land over at Universal regarding ALL projects even remotely connected to SWATH, and here's what I've managed to dig up.

Kristen Stewart is not out of anything... at least not yet.

David Koepp was brought on to write a sequel to SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN. He delivered his draft. Universal has that in their hands, and now he's moving onto something else.

THE HUNTSMAN spin-off is something that Universal has been tossing around for months now, so that's really nothing new. They may still wind up making it. They may not. They may decide to make a SNOW WHITE sequel. They may not. They may decide to use Kristen Stewart for that sequel if it happens... and if it doesn't, then they won't... at least for that film.

They don't have a script for THE HUNTSMAN spin-off at this point, so there's no telling if Snow White will play a part in it, which, in turn, means there's no telling if Kristen Stewart will be involved.

As far as Rupert Sanders' involvement, it falls along the same lines of who knows at this point. I can tell you that he was only signed on for the one film, so, if Universal does decide to bring him back to the director's chair, they'll have to negotiate a new deal for him to do so.

And really there's no timetable for any decisions to be made, because Chris Hemsworth is incredibly busy with his Marvel committments, not to mention SHADOW RUNNERS for Sony, possible involvement in ROBOPOCALYPSE with Steven Spielberg and is still attached to star in IN THE HEART OF THE SEA. Who knows where a Snow White movie or spin-off would slot in?

So, in the end, Kristen Stewart is right in line with the rest of the SNOW WHITE prospects for Universal. It's all in limbo until Universal ultimately chooses which direction they want to go in... and there's no telling when that might be.

Now you've got the whole true story.
