Jamie Dornan has reactivated his Instagram account and it’s safe to assume boredom got to him. It’s getting to many of us. Jamie has always been slightly terrified of the Fifty Shades of Grey fans so he doesn’t lean into that whole thing and neither does Dakota Johnson. The movies seem like something they had to endure to get the next level, not an experience they really embraced. Remember when Charlie Hunnam was cast as Christian Grey and then bailed? Do you think he looks back and thinks “thank f-ck”?
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom had a gender reveal which, ya, this tracks. It probably would have been a party if they could have swung it. But there’s still time for a baby shower. They will have a very showy shower, if parties are ever allowed again.
Last week, Lainey talked about co-parenting during all this – Wayne Brady and his ex-wife have gotten a few headlines for “quarantining together.” They aren’t in the same house but they are neighbours, which is kind of the best of both worlds.
He calls it parallel quarantining. I kind of like that phrase – is GP mad she didn’t think of it first?
Great, now Henry Winkler is upset. Maybe Bill Hader could Zoom with him? (Barry and Succession are both delayed and if that doesn’t motivate people to stay home, what will.)
I am , like so many of us , filled with anxiety .— Henry Winkler (@hwinkler4real) April 6, 2020
Celebrities have not been churning out the best content, even though they have a captive audience. From Madonna’s overly lit baths to Beyoncé going silent, we need a shake-up.
Here is what I’m proposing: feud reveals. Every week, two celebrities involved in a work or friendship feud need to reveal their side of the story. For example, week one could be Gwyneth Paltrow and Winona Ryder. Week two could be Karlie Kloss and Taylor Swift. Week three could be Julianna Margulies and Archie Panjabi. Then we would have a week to dissect and argue about the feud before moving onto the next one. Celebrities want to help and this would help. It would be a public service.
Then there’s the romantic feud. For this, we can turn to The Cut’s “Both Sides of a Breakup” but instead of anonymous New Yorkers, it would be famous people. But we need to be realistic about it (a couple like Brad and Angelina or Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are not taking this on). I would purpose that the couple didn’t ever make it official (common law or marriage) and don’t have any continuing ties (like children to co-parent). Who do you want to hear from? My three picks would be Hailee Steinfeld and Niall Horan, Vanessa Hudgens and Austin Butler and Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp. I would break my own rules to know why Justin Hartley ghosted his wife Chrishell Stause.
