Corrections: There is no Madonna album called Borderline. You should read the RDJ story linked at the bottom, because we may have gotten a few little details wrong. Tobey Maguire is 36, Leo DiCaprio is 37. Both Matrix Reloaded and Matrix Revolutions came out in 2003. Logan Lerman plays Charlie in The Perks of Being a Wallflower film. It wasn't Peaches Geldof who had a walkman, it was Pixie Geldof and she had a discman. Destiny quotes a random AV Club comment when she says Ricky Fitts "brings the art and drugs to the neighborhood" in American Beauty, and she has no idea who it was. Wes Bentley's character in Hunger Games is named Seneca Crane. A Beautiful Mind won the Best Picture Oscar the year after Gladiator. Drop Dead Gorgeous came out in 1999 and also featured Ellen Barkin and Denise Richards. Destiny was 13 in 1999, not 15.
