Justin Theroux and Emma Stone are two people who are not dating (just friends!), but they just can’t stop throwing out the signals of people who are dating each other. They’ve been seen repeatedly together, and they recently spent time in France at the same places and beaches. If you’re keeping track at home, it’s time to whip out a marker and make yet another note for the “Ok but they’re totally dating” column. And the latest evidence comes by way of Jennifer Lawrence.
For about a month now, Justin Theroux and Emma Stone have been sucked into a rumor that their friendship is a lot friendlier than either of them will let on. E! News thinks they’ve gotten to the bottom of things, and they say the two are platonic.
Justin and Emma have been seen most recently in France for a work obligation related to their respective deals with Louis Vuitton. Once source says that they’re just hanging out as friends “and colleagues were with them during the day [on Monday].”
Justin has also been “spotted” with fellow face of LV, Laura Harrier. They might possibly be dating, but it’s not serious. Another source says that Justin is just casually dating.
“Justin is hanging out and having the time of his life. He’s casually dating, but it’s nothing more. He’s in a great place and very happy. He’s enjoying being social and meeting people from all walks of life. He is excited about doing new things and traveling. He’s looking forward to a great summer of fun and just seeing where it leads.”
The source adds that he’s “letting loose” for the first time in several years because he doesn’t have anyone else “to be responsible for or to report back to” and he’s “moved on” from Jennifer Aniston.
I hope the source was serious when they said Justin is being social with people from all walks of life. I know I would be delighted to trade in a week of “Justin spotted canoodling with Emma” to “Justin caught dry humping on a beach towel with Dame Judi Dench.”
Justin Theroux has never been shy about showing off his skinny-hot hipster torso, so maybe we shouldn’t read too much into the fact that he’s been flashing his tats in the south of France in front of his new lady friend Emma Stone. Justin has said the two are just “BFFs”. But according to People, the two spent a lot of time together over the weekend, adding fuel to the rumors of a more carnal relationship.
It’s time to take a pen to “Justin Theroux might be hooking up with Selena Gomez” rumor and scratch out Selena’s name, and scribble in “Emma Stone.” Because it would appear that Justin has moved his slick aging hipster sights onto a new target in her 20s.
Before Harvey Weinstein was officially outed as the closest DNA relative to a bridge troll, it seemed as though every red carpet had at least one star in a Marchesa dress. Marchesa is co-owned by Harvey’s now-estranged wife Georgina Chapman. Then the stories about Harvey went public, and A-list actresses were running away from Marchesa as if it was a deep-fried gluten sandwich. Nobody wanted to wear Marchesa anymore. Well, nobody until Scarlett Johansson, who did just that at the Met Gala.
Note that I left out the word “mess,” as there’s no question that the messiest part of the red carpet was most likely the three square feet of space occupied by Ryan Seacrest.
If there was an award for red carpet fashion that makes you question a stylist’s sanity, Nicole Kidman would be that category’s Meryl Streep. Nicole arrived in an Armani Prive gown that does double duty. From the waist-up she’s very mascot of a sexy frozen fish company, and from the waist down I’m getting a reminder to please separate my plastic recyclables from my paper.
