The new remake of the 1951 John Huston classic, The African Queen, that starred Katharine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart finally has a trailer. For some reason they’re calling it Jungle Cruise and it stars Emily Blunt and The Rock. It does make me wonder though. It’s a Disney movie, and coincidentally, there just so happens to be a ride at Disneyland called Jungle Cruise. It’s almost too on the nose. Could it be that it’s not a coincidence at all? Nah! There’s no way in hell they’d try to make an entire movie based on the flimsy premise of a lazy river from which a dusty hippopotamus sprays stagnant pond water on a boatload of sunburnt tourists. Sure, they did make all those Pirates of The Caribbean movies, but those only grossed a measly $5 billion worldwide! Surely Disney wouldn’t attempt the same folly twice!
It’s a bit redundant to say so, because aren’t all award shows just an excuse for fashion houses to clean out their local Fabric Barn and send a famous person down the carpet in more material than a 1980s canopy bed set? But the Emmys did see a lot of by-the-yardage last night, like on Jessica Biel, who said yes to a white Ralph & Russo dress. If you think Jessica and Justin Timberlake look like they stopped by the Emmys on their way to appearing on the top of a wedding cake, you’re not the only one.
And in celebrity baby news that’s not about the newest Kardashian money-maker making her Instagram debut…
It was revealed this week that that Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons contributed to our planet’s overpopulation problem with a baby boy who, judging by his parents’ skin tones, is probably in the running for “Palest Human On Earth.” But the most important part about the birth hadn’t been revealed until now – the name! The Blast got a hold of the birth certificate (there is no privacy anywhere ever) and we’d like to welcome Ennis Howard Plemons to this life. And well, that’s quite a name. He sounds like an old-timey failed presidential candidate who ran on the Bull Moose platform in 1912. Continue reading
Kirsten Dunst and her fiance Jesse Plemons have welcomed a healthy baby boy! Kiki and Jesse have been keeping things pretty low key, with Kiki with only confirming her pregnancy three months ago. So this is all we really know: A baby was inside of Kiki’s tummy and now it lives in their house and presumably poops and screams a lot. A source says “Everyone is doing great”.
The picture above was taken yesterday while Kirsten Dunst was walking in Los Angeles. Depending on what kind of person you are, you might be staring intently at the middle of that picture, wondering “Is that ice tea or a massive cup of apple juice?“. Or maybe you’re the type of person to stare at the middle with the suspicion that Kiki could be pregnant. According to UsWeekly, she is. The jury is still out on what’s in the cup.
A source tells UsWeekly that 35-year-old Kirsten is currently pregnant with a baby she made with her 29-year-old Fargo co-star-turned-fiancé Jesse Plemons (aka Landry from Friday Night Lights).
The source has no other information about Kirsten’s reported first pregnancy, like how far along she is or what kind of pee stick she used to confirm it. All UsWeekly knows is that Kirsten and Jesse are planning on getting married in the spring in Austin, Texas. So depending on how many calendar pages that baby has been flipping on the inside, there’s a chance Kirsten could stroll down the aisle with a bouquet in one arm and a little pudgy-cheeked blonde baby in the other. Although, they could do it shotgun-style and get hitched riiiiiiight before the baby pops out. That should be fun, hauling ass up and down the aisle, and whipping around the dance floor to a 5x sped-up version of “At Last” before the contractions kick in.
Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons played two married dummies named Peggy and Ed on the second season of Fargo, and their whole relationship centered around them bumbling their way through the cover-up of a whoopsie-murder. Spending months talking about body-disposal, blood-removal, and the best way not to get revenge-murdered by farmers was the sort of thing that brought them close together. How could it not? They reportedly hooked up in real-life after the show ended, and now there’s a rumor that they’re engaged. Kirsten Dunst may be one step closer to living out that wifey life she’s always dreamed of.
