No need to check to see if we all time-traveled back to April 1st. I checked. It’s April 7th. According to several anonymous tips sent into gossip Instagram, Deux Moi, Kylie Jenner, and Timothée Chalamet might be (*shudders*)… dating, and it may have been going on for months. There’s something about this math that just ain’t mathin’. I mean, DeuxMoi’s recent claim that Tom Brady and Reese Witherspoon were a thing was shut down as false. So this rumor feels like being forced to eat sushi every day at school – it just doesn’t feel right. (Kanye’s sushi-serving school would beg to differ) But since Kim Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian both got with skinny white dudes, maybe Kylie is following the new Koven trend.
We must not have been paying Kim Kardashian enough attention after she was exonerated from possibly destroying the world’s oldest Freakum Dress because she’s back again to discuss how beautiful she is. In a new interview with Allure Magazine (via Too Fab), Kim gives readers answers to their lukewarm questions about her immovable face and couch cushion curves by admitting that she has not now, or EVER, desecrated the Temple of Doom she calls a body with any kind of fillers. According to her, she really only touches her face with “a little” Botox. And the world collectively laughs.
Jared Leto’s method acting process is so notorious that he’s probably made Daniel Day-Lewis say, “Calm down, girl.” Jared gave the Suicide Squad cast gross gifts from his character Joker, and even more recently, Anne Hathaway said that she barely met the “real” Jared Leto because he stayed in character while filming their limited-series WeCrashed. But I guess Jared doesn’t think he’s insufferable enough, because while talking to Variety, he said that what he does isn’t called “method acting,” it’s called “immersive work.” It seems to me that the only thing Jared is immersed in is his own ass, but I’m not the artiste here!
The name Vincent Kartheiser, who played Pete Campbell in Mad Men, was in many headlines yesterday, and surprisingly it wasn’t because he let us know that like those other celebrity Pig Pens, a bar of soap barely ever touches his skin. I don’t think Vincent has to tell us that, though. Vincent’s name made the rounds because Deadline reported that he was the subject of multiple misconduct investigations after he allegedly behaved like a throbbing asshole on the Toronto set of HBO Max’s Titans. One of those investigations led to the studio assigning a “representative” to look after him while he was on set. So they pretty much needed to get Vincent a babysitter thanks to him being a real-life Pete Campbell. Can you imagine the conversation the “representative” had with their loved one before leaving for the first day of their new job? “Bye, honey, I’m off to my new babysitting gig.” “Awww, that’s cute, how old is the child?” “It’s Pete Campbell.” “May GOD be with you.”
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?
Good news short men of the world who are uncomfortable about it–there’s something you can do to change. I mean, instead of grabbing a pair of Tom Cruise-certified cha-cha heels and some bootcut pants to camouflage. 33-year-old Big Sean, who “was” 5’8″, became Slightly Bigger Sean after he claimed to have grown 2-inches thanks to the help of a chiropractor “straightening his spine.” So actually, I guess this is only good news for short men with crooked backs. Sorry, well-postured shorties. You’re out of luck.
