It Finally Happened: Stranger Things’ Natalia Dyer Breaks Her Silence on BF Charlie Heaton

January 23, 2018

Natalia Dyer is finally opening up about her boyfriend, Stranger Things costar Charlie Heaton, three months after going public with their romance. On Sunday, the 21-year-old actress attended the SAG Awards in LA, where she was asked about what she loves most about working with Charlie. “He’s alright, I guess. He doesn’t mess up our scenes too much!” Natalia joked. “No, he’s great. He’s talented, like everybody in the cast. They’re all super, just great to work with.” While she did admit that there are some “pros and cons” to working alongside her boyfriend, she ultimately said, “It’s a lot of fun.”

Natalia has been quietly dating the 23-year-old actor since January 2017, but it wasn’t until last month that they made their red carpet debut as a couple at the Fashion Awards in London. On top of it all, Charlie recently gave Natalia a sweet birthday shout-out on Instagram and they’ve been spotted out on multiple dates together, including one with Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams. We’re so happy these two are no longer hiding their love for each other!

Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger starred together in the Oscar-nominated Brokeback Mountain back in 2005, along with Heath’s then-partner Michelle Williams. Michelle was pregnant with the couple’s only child during promotion for the film and when their daughter Matilda was born in October of that year, Michelle and Heath named Jake as her godfather (her godmother is Michelle’s longtime BFF Busy Philipps).

When Heath tragically passed away in 2008, Jake stepped in to help Michelle care for Matilda, who was just 3 years old at the time. Jake has since opened up about the impact Heath’s death has had on him, saying, “It affected me in ways I can’t necessarily put in words,” while Michelle has been vocal about the struggles of being a single mother and her concerns about Matilda growing up without a father.

There’s a Reason Justin Hartley’s Wife Wasn’t at the SAG Awards – and It’s So Damn Sweet

January 23, 2018

When Justin Hartley arrived at the SAG Awards this year, we had one major question on our minds: where on earth was his new wife, Chrishell? Though we were a little bummed to miss out on another swoon-worthy red carpet appearance from the newlyweds, that sadness immediately disappeared when we learned why Chrishell wasn’t there. She chose to let a younger This Is Us star have Justin’s plus-one ticket in her place so they could be present for the evening’s festivities (which ended up resulting in a big win for the cast!). Does it get any sweeter than that?

Justin walked the red carpet with the youngest actor of his character, 10-year-old Parker Bates, and the two could not have possibly looked any more dapper. Later on, after the This Is Us cast snagged the award for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series, Justin also met up with 18-year-old actor Logan Shroyer, who plays the teenage version of Kevin Pearson in the NBC series.

Chrissy Metz (Kate Pearson) also made the same move, as she brought the youngest actress of her character, Mackenzie Hancsicsak, along to enjoy the award show with the rest of the cast. Following the SAG Awards, Mackenzie tweeted an adorable thank you to her older costar, along with an explanation of exactly why Chrissy and Justin wanted to bring some of their younger costars. “Just want 2 thank Miss @ChrissyMetz again 4 very graciously & selflessly giving up her plus one so I could attend the SAG awards,” she wrote. “Some of the kid ensemble didn’t appear in enough episodes 2 qualify, but when the adults found out, they stepped up & offered their plus one. Thank U!”

Luckily, Chrishell didn’t have to suffer from too much FOMO, as she was able to celebrate the big win with her hubby at the Netflix afterparty later that evening. Ahead, see a few cute snaps of Justin with two different generations of Kevin Pearson, and then be sure to check out the rest of our favorite pictures of the This Is Us cast living their best lives at the SAG Awards like the family they are.

Jack Brooksbank’s Proposal to Princess Eugenie Was Romantic but Pretty Unconventional

January 23, 2018

On Monday, Kensington Palace announced that Princess Eugenie is engaged to longtime boyfriend Jack Brooksbank, and now the pair are sharing the intimate details of the proposal. During an interview with BBC 1‘s Matt Baker, the royal revealed the romantic and somewhat unconventional way Jack got down on one knee and popped the question.

The couple were visiting Nicaragua at the time, when they decided to stop beside a lake as the sun was setting. “The lake was so beautiful,” Eugenie explained. “The light was just a special light I had never seen. I actually said, ‘This is an incredible moment,’ and then he popped the question, which was really surprising even though we’ve been together seven years. I was over the moon. [It was a] complete surprise. But it was the perfect moment; we couldn’t be happier. We knew it was going to end up this way.”

While the proposal was straight out of a movie, there was one significant thing missing: a ring. Jack actually decided to pop the question without an actual engagement ring so that Eugenie could help design it. “I found a ring in a jeweler’s and then proposed to Eugenie without it,” he said about her pink sparkler. “[When we] came back, we designed the diamonds around this padparadscha sapphire. . . . And what’s amazing about it is that it changes color from every different angle that you look at it, which is what I think of Eugenie – that she changes color and is just so amazing.” The couple are set to tie the knot in the Fall at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor, which is the same venue Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have chosen for their May 2018 wedding.

Michael B. Jordan Is “Technically Single,” So We Just Wanna Say, Thank You, Lord

January 22, 2018

This is not a drill: Michael B. Jordan is single. I repeat: Michael B. Jordan is single! The Black Panther actor opened up about his love life in a recent interview with WSJ Magazine, telling the publication that he’s “dating, but technically single.” Let’s just say, we’re very happy with this news. “L.A. isn’t the best place to date,” he continued. “No offense to L.A.” (There’s always New York, Michael, and I’m not just saying that because I live here.)

The oh-so-handsome star also revealed he put on 20 pounds of muscle to play Erik Killmonger, the oft-shirtless villain in the upcoming Marvel movie. “Everything,” he said of his workout routine. “Chest, shoulders, back. My legs a little bit, my quads. I was just, like, massive.”

Did I faint while typing out that quote? Maybe. Michael continued, “I wanted to build a performance that people will remember. Something different. Grow my hair out? Cool. I’ll grow my hair for a year. Put on 20 pounds? I’ll put on 20 pounds.”

A true thespian! But back to his dating life, am I right? Michael noted that whoever he ends up in a relationship with will have to be up to the standards of his intimidating housemates. “My parents are my roommates,” he shared. So: if you’re ever lucky enough to call Michael your boyfriend, you’ll have to pass the parent test first. Fair enough. Just let me know where to apply.
