    Bill Skarsgård Was Lookin' Super Cute At San Diego Comic-Con And Now I Think I Understand Ya'll

    "I should've listened to the Pennywise stans." —Something I never thought I'd say.

    So I was at San Diego Comic-Con and found myself in the panel for Castle Rock.

    The audience was treated to the entire first episode of the Stephen King-inspired series, which was followed by the cast all coming out on the stage for a Q&A.

    And I was like: "Cool, neat, awesome, but hold TF up, wait a sweet minute, IS THIS THE BILL SKARSGARD GUY EVERYONE HAS BEEN TALKING ABOUT???"

    Because I'm assuming it isn't Sissy Spacek.

    Hot-diggity-clown-in-a-sewer, I was SHOOK. I had never seen him outside of his IT get-up before, so I thought ya'll were a little loopy thinking Pennywise was a ~sewer prince~.

    Real talk, I didn't even know how to process this information. The man of my dreams is the clown from my nightmares???


    You mean to tell me I've been dating amatuer clowns when I could've been thirsting after this man who ACTUALLY plays a clown?

    Sorry, exes, but it was an easy joke and I regret nothing.

    Just look at him, all cuddled up with a horror icon, looking right at home.

    Here's a picture of him staring longingly at me in the audience as I plan our spring Stephen King-themed wedding.*

    *JK, I was sitting on the other side of the room, but seriously just let me have this one? I have so little.

    Okay, okay, so I know you guys already knew about him, BUT I'M JUST FINDING OUT, SO JUST BE HAPPY FOR ME.

    so this is the man playing pennywise the clown? catch me in the sewer floating sis!

    Ya'll were way ahead of me on this one. I give credit where credit is due.

    So yeah, that's all I've got for ya. I fell in love at Comic-Con...
