The Walking Dead: Onscreen Enemies, Offscreen Bromances

March 30, 2017

The Walking Dead has had some vicious and violent onscreen rivalries, but a number of the actors who played enemies on the show became very close offscreen. Here are four pairs of the biggest Walking Dead enemies who are now best friends in real life:

1. Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and Shane (Jon Bernthal)

Onscreen, they battled over their love for Rick’s wife, Lori, and vied for leadership of the group – until Shane tried to kill Rick and got a knife to the gut for his trouble. But offscreen, the two are so close that Lincoln calls Bernthal “my American brother” and Bernthal has said of Lincoln: “It’s been the honor of my acting career to act alongside Andrew Lincoln. He’s my brother, he’s my best friend that I’ve made in the acting world.”

2. The Governor (David Morrissey) and Hershel (Scott Wilson)

The Governor’s torment of Rick’s group reached its pinnacle when he sliced off the head of kindly father figure Hershel with a sword. But Morrissey and Wilson forged a close friendship on set that continues to this day. The two like to joke about the strange looks they get when the show’s fans see them together on the golf course. They were recently spotted saying good-bye after a London convention appearance:

3. Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan)

Negan beat Daryl’s friends to death in front of him and then kidnapped and tortured Daryl himself, but Reedus and Morgan spend their time off set taking motorcycle trips together and call each other by pet names (“Bubba” for Reedus and “Sugar” for Morgan). Morgan recently said of Reedus: “I found the brother I never had”.

4. Gregory (Xander Berkeley) and Simon (Steven Ogg)

Gregory cowers whenever Negan’s brutal henchman Simon shows up at the Hilltop, but Berkeley and Ogg (who have given themselves the couple name ‘XandOgg’) love to show off their bromance on social media:

Scarlett Johansson’s Latest Appearance Will Make You Say, “OK, Whoa”

March 30, 2017

We hope the red carpet at Wednesday night’s premiere of Ghost in the Shell had some fire extinguishers handy, because Scarlett Johansson basically lit the place on fire. The actress, who stars in the remake of the iconic Japanese anime film, attended the New York City premiere looking all kinds of gorgeous. After arriving at AMC’s Lincoln Square Theater with her twin brother, Hunter, the actress posed for photos on the carpet in a stunning rainbow dress. Despite her recent split from her husband of two years, Romain Dauriac, the mother of daughter Rose seems to be doing just fine.

Turns Out, the Queen Is Technically a Binge-Drinker

March 30, 2017

We’ve gotten to learn quite a lot about Queen Elizabeth II over the course of her 90 years, but this latest fact is especially fascinating to us. According to Esquire UK, the monarch is a pretty impressive day drinker, so much so that by UK government standards she’s technically a binge-drinker (same, to be honest).

She gets started right before lunch, enjoying a gin and Dubonnet (a wine-based liqueur) with lemon and lots of ice, then a glass of wine with her meal. A few hours later, she has a dry martini, followed by a glass of Champagne in the evening (there are eight different Champagne producers at the palace including Bollinger, Krug, Lanson, and Pol Roger, which was also served at William and Kate’s wedding).

Now, size-wise, Elizabeth’s intake is the equivalent of six drinks per day and 42 drinks per week (assuming she doesn’t go crazy on the weekends), though the Queen’s government recommends 14 drinks a week as a healthy measure of alcohol consumption. What can she say? She has a monarchy to run.

What Ed Sheeran Did For a Young Boy in Liberia Will Bring You to Tears

March 30, 2017

Ed Sheeran is one of many celebrities to participate in this year’s annual Red Nose Day initiative from British charity organization Comic Relief, and a video from his recent journey to Liberia is going viral for all the right reasons. While visiting the African country on behalf of Comic Relief’s fundraising efforts, Ed met a young boy named JD, whose only wish is to attend school and “become the president.” JD’s mother and grandfather died of Ebola, and after his father deserted him, he was left to fend for himself on the streets, where he’s been for six months. “I’ve never felt so on edge anywhere that I’ve been in my entire life,” Ed said about the slum, where JD and his young friends sleep in an old canoe.

“My natural instinct is to just put them in a car and just take them and just put them in a hotel until we can get them sorted,” Ed said to the camera crew. He then asked if he could pay to move JD and the other boys from danger until they can put them into school: “It doesn’t matter how much it costs,” he said. “Can we just get him and his five mates in a house with an older person to look after them? I don’t think we can go until that’s sorted.” After the show aired on Friday in the UK, Comic Relief confirmed via Twitter: “JD & his friends, who @EdSheeran met, are now safe but many more children still live in danger.” Watch the heartbreaking video above now, then find out more about Comic Relief and how you can donate to the cause.
