Whether you're Team Dean, Team Jess, or Team Logan, it's hard to imagine Rory dating anyone else. But what if that someone was Ryan Gosling? According to casting director Jami Rudofsky, the La La Land star once auditioned for the role of a young football player who we can only imagine/dream/hope above all hopes would have had some kind of romantic relationship with Rory.
Watch below as Rudofsky dishes on Gosling's audition during a Gilmore Girls' fan fest this weekend.
The bare necessities.
The new bareMinerals BarePro Performance Wear Powder Foundation comes in 30 shades, including its deepest-ever colour offerings, thanks to new technologies and the removal of physical sunscreen, which allowed for the creation of richer pigments.
“It was a limiting factor for us,” says Bill Hughes, the brand’s senior director of global marketing and product development, of the SPF. “We believe in mineral sunscreen, but titanium dioxide and zinc oxide have a very ashy cast.”
Added in its wake: vitamins D and E, for hydration, and vitamin B6. “Customers with oily skin tend to be deficient in B6,” says Hughes. “So, along with the silica and mica, it will help control oil absorption.”
These minerals and vitamins are milled to create superfine particles, so the powder foundation avoids looking, well, powdery. Just make sure you apply sunscreen first.

Her skincare specialist explains.
When you get a bespoke facial from Jennifer Brodeur at Bella Clinique in Montreal, you’ll also meet “Max,” the LED-light-therapy machine that Brodeur designed in 2003 and always refers to as a person. (It’s actually called “Max+.”)
The machine, she explains, harnesses research from NASA and uses light wavelengths to treat skin concerns. Skin cells absorb the UV-free light as energy. Red-light wavelengths, for example, are said to stimulate fibroblasts to create collagen, while yellow light tightens skin.
“It’s interesting because you don’t feel anything, so a lot of clients at first were like, ‘Are you sure you’re doing something?’” she says, laughing. Any disbelievers can call Oprah; Brodeur has been treating her since 2012.
It looks like a pint of Guinness, tastes like a cold brew, and is only available in one Canadian Starbucks location—but it's not on the secret menu. So what is this mystery drink launching RN in Canada?
It's nitro coffee, which in terms of coffee trends is 2016's answer to 2015's obsession with pour over (and apparently an extension of our obsession with cold coffee in general, which Starbucks says is actually a growing part of our morning coffee order, even in the winter).
So what is it, and how is not just cold brew? Well, it is cold brew in the sense that it's based on the same intial process (steeping coffee for 20 hours in cold water) but then things get science-y when they infuse it with nitrogen. This is key because it's crisp and cold without any ice added, excellent news for anyone who's ever hated how watered down the end of your iced coffee sometimes tastes.
Nitro cold brew is currently only available at one location in Canada (Brookfield Place in Toronto) but word on the street is that they'll be rolling it out at more locations A-to-the-SAP.
