Ben Platt Says The Reaction To Him In “Dear Evan Hansen” Ran Him Off Twitter
Last year, Twitter dragged the movie version of Dear Evan Hansen, and went in on how Ben Platt played a teenage boy who did NOT suffer from Benjamin Button syndrome even though he looked much older than high school age. At the time, Ben Platt responded to the hate, calling it “randos being jerks” on Twitter. And now, Ben reveals that the treatment actually ran him off Twitter, and he learned at that time that Twitter was actually very mean. WHAT!? Twitter is a cesspool of anonymous people making outrageously offensive remarks?! I am shocked! Next, you’ll tell me that when Elon Musk officially bought Twitter, the use of slurs jumped 500%! I will not believe you!
Bruce Willis Was Nominated For So Many Razzie Awards They Gave Him His Own Category
Awards season usually kicks off with a sloppy, boozy Golden Globes ceremony, but this year, the closest we got was a sloppy, blunted GG nominations announcement followed by some unpaid intern at the HFPA “live-tweeting” the results into a void. But ahead of tomorrow’s announcement of the Oscar nominations, things are looking up. Just not for perennial hopeful Amy Adams who was just nominated for two Razzie Awards for two separate roles this year. While The Golden Raspberry committee had to create an entirely new category devoted to Bruce Willis’ unprecedented EIGHT nominations in a single year, I still believe in Amy and want better for her, prompting me to write a simple invocation. So, please join me in prayer.
“Dear Evan Hansen” Is Still Getting Dragged By Critics
Dear Evan Hansen premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month, and the reviews were mostly mixed. But since it came out today, more reviews have been released and most critics hate it as much as whoever did Ben Platt’s hair in the movie hates him (no, that’s not a wig). Dear Evan Hansen has been ripped a new one by film critics who called the movie one of the “worst movie musicals ever made” and described 27-year-old Ben Platt‘s performance as a teenager as an “obviously grown man just hunching his shoulders.” Not since Cats….
The Men Of The Met Gala: They Were Also There!
The Met Gala is usually Ladies Night plus Jared Leto as most of the men just throw on a tux and call it a day. But this year saw a lot more fellows willing to risk it all in the name of FASHION! Ok, maybe not risking it all, but at the very least, risking falling down the stairs ass-over-tea kettle like Jason Derulo by wearing a chunky shoe. Of course, you’re gonna have your showboats like Lil Nas X here who’s outfit included two separate reveals and enough tooch-booching to make even Tyra Banks scream “THIS IS TOO MUCH!”
The First Reviews For “Dear Evan Hansen” Are Mixed
The first trailer for the film adaptation of Dear Evan Hansen had barely hit the internet when people began roasting it like a marshmallow, mostly cracking jokes about how the film’s star, 27-year-old Ben Platt, looked more like he should be playing a grown man stressed out about missing a mortgage payment than a high school student. Ben Platt slapped back, saying that adult actors have been playing teens forever, and people need to get over it. So with that mindset, people should go into a viewing of the film and accept it for what it is based on the story and songs and production. And according to some recent reviews, those parts of the movie aren’t great either. Then again, some people that saw it don’t think it’s that bad.
Ben Platt Thinks That The “Dear Evan Hansen” Movie Would’ve Never Been Made Without Him
Ben Platt has been with Dear Evan Hansen since the beginning from workshops in 2014 to starring in it on Broadway in 2016, which got him the Tony for Best Leading Actor in a Musical at the tender age of 23. As we know, acclaimed things that aren’t movies will eventually be made into a movie. 27-year-old Ben reprised his role as 17-year-old Evan Hansen in the movie version that comes out on September 24. While us “randos being jerks” may have been rolling on our floors laughing at this Inception-level stretch of our imaginations that this obvious man was a teenager, Ben has come out to say that he basically had to be the one to play this role (in the movie which is being produced by his father). Because if he didn’t, Dear Evan Hansen would never have been made! …And what would have been the problem with that?
