They reanimated Red Carpet Angelina Jolie and trotted her around the globe like a prized thoroughbred (they even tried to give her a real horse-hair mane!) for the premiere of Eternals and for what? The early reviews are in and it’s unanimous — It’s no Dune!
The most maternal of all the Eternals, Angelina Jolie, brought the entire child army save 17-year-old Pax to her Marvel premiere last night, in case you were wondering who the child army’s favorite parent should be. (Hint: it’s the one who lets them root through her closet and takes them to fancy red carpet events) According to People, Maddox, 20, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 15, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 13, all joined Angie on the red carpet for the Hollywood premiere of Marvel’s Eternals, and Zahara wore the same Elie Saab gown Angie wore to the 2014 Academy Awards. Do you think Brad Pitt is going to let any of those rugrats touch his precious hat collection?! Not a chance.
In late 2019 Kumail Nanjiani was the cause of millions of jaw drops (ow!) when he totally transformed his body for his role as Kingo in The Eternals. Dude got so muscly he temporarily became the face of PornHub’s “Muscular Men” category. A few months later, Kumail modeled for the cover of Men’s Health, and admitted getting buff had given him body dysmorphia. By the end of 2020 he experienced major backlash after posting a super-buff Christmas dinner pic to Instagram. Social media users made fun of his muscles, jawline, and accused him of abusing steroids.
In a new interview with Vulture, Kumail says the critical tweets affirmed all his insecurities and didn’t help his body dysmorphia. He says that no matter how muscly he got, nothing was ever good enough. His ideal shape? Arnold Schwarzenegger from Pumping Iron. Oh boy. Maybe he should’ve kept things realistic and gone with Johnny Bravo.
Thomas Middleditch, the star of Silicon Valley, that Netflix improv special with Ben Schwartz, and the Chuck Lorre organ donor sitcom B Positive, has been accused of sexual assault and misconduct. I know… the guy who gave his now ex-wife a “let’s become swingers or the marriage won’t work” ultimatum and then blabbed about it to Playboy is (allegedly) a creep. Pikachu meme face.

Last year Kumail Nanjiani bulked up to prepare for his role as Kingo in Marvel’s upcoming film Eternals. He showed off his jacked bod on the socials, was briefly the face of PornHub’s “Muscular Men” category, and graced the cover of Men’s Health. He also talked about how his transformation triggered body dysmorphia. Well, if Kumail was struggling with body issues then, his last few days must’ve been hell, cuz the Internet attacked him the moment he posted the above picture to Instagram. Twitterers made fun of his muscles and jawline and accused him of abusing steroids.
Kumail Najiani is still buff and he’s still talking about it. We’ve got another year of The Eternals promo to thank for this. Kumail is now covering the latest issue of Men’s Health, and he’s letting us know the dark-side to getting buff. He apparently developed body dysmorphia after getting a superhero bod.
