'Exploding Actresses' Is My New Favorite Tumblr

Posted By on Tue, Jun 25, 2013 at 1:24 PM

Sometimes when we work here, we find things that are so funny that other people in the office become uncomfortable with our level of laughter.

explodingactresses.tumblr.com is the latest cause of our sales department looking over at editorial and wondering what the f—k we're getting into.

I'll admit, the title of the blog is curious — I mean, actresses exploding? What could be funny about that, you ask?

Well, I ask you respectfully: what isn't funny about Meg Ryan's faked orgasm from When Harry Met Sally turning her into a party favor, or Julia Roberts literally exploding with glee upon viewing a fancy new necklace on loan from Richard Gere in Pretty Woman?:

Even better is the mass of Disney princesses getting the explosion treatment during musical numbers:

It's just a great Tumblr that's somewhat awkward (and may ruin a few childhood memories) but is absurdly, unexpectedly hilarious in just the right ways.

My final recommendation? This video of classic movie scenes, featuring the ultimate topper at the end.
