Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger Are Engaged

Looks like whirlwind celebrity romances won’t be slowing down in 2019, given that Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger are the latest Hollywood A-listers (and the first of 2019) to announce their engagement after a short courtship.

Early Monday, Pratt took to social media to share that he had proposed to Schwarzenegger, the daughter of Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger. “Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes! I’m thrilled to be marrying you. Proud to live boldly in faith with you. Here we go! 💍🙏♥️,” the actor wrote alongside a photo of he and Schwarzenegger embracing. In the shot fans can catch a glimpse of Schwarzenegger’s new massive solitaire diamond.

Rumors of their relationship began in June when the pair were spotted having a picnic on Father’s Day 2018. Since June, the two have been seen together several times in Los Angeles, and Pratt finally confirmed the relationship just a month ago, posting a collage of photos to Instagram in honor of Schwarzenegger’s birthday. On December 13, he shared the images with the sweet caption, “Happy Birthday Chief! Your smile lights up the room. I’ve cherished our time together. Thrilled God put you in my life. Thankful for the laughs, kisses, talks, hikes, love and care.♥️🍾🎉🎂.”

Pratt was previously married to Anna Faris for eight years, until they announced their separation in August 2017. But like many other Hollywood couples of late, Pratt and Faris vowed to have an amicable divorce in an effort to co-parent their 6-year-old son Jack. (In November news broke that the couple even agreed to live within five miles of each other until Jack completed the sixth grade.) Ever the modern family, Pratt and Schwarzenegger were spotted together on Halloween trick-or-treating with Jack, Faris and Faris’s new significant other.

The Guardians of the Galaxy star has previously spoken openly about the hardships of divorce and how he and Faris are maintaining a friendship.

“Divorce sucks,” Pratt said in an interview with EW. “But at the end of the day, we’ve got a great kid who’s got two parents who love him very much. And we’re finding a way to navigate this while still remaining friends and still being kind to one another. It’s not ideal, but yeah, I think both of us are actually probably doing better.”

“It’s so easy to compare and want to change yourself. To look at other people and feel like, ‘If only I had more of this or more of that, or if I was prettier or skinnier.’ I spent a long time feeling like that,” says Harrier, who starred in Spider-Man: Homecoming and BlacKkKlansman and will next appear in Balance, Not Symmetry. “When I was like, ‘Oh, being comfortable with yourself and knowing who you are as a human being is enough,’ it just made me feel a lot better in life.” Louis Vuitton dress, price upon request, select Louis Vuitton stores.

Why Damien Chazelle Believes First’s Man’s Bracelet On The Moon Scene To Be True

SPOILER WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for First Man. If you have not yet seen the film, please read on at your own risk!

While Ryan Gosling’s Neil Armstrong remains a stoic figure throughout most of Damien Chazelle’s First Man, never seeming to fully process the death of his daughter as he enters the space program, he succeeds in having a big emotional moment shortly after he lands on the moon. It’s revealed in the film that he brought a bracelet belonging to his daughter in the shuttle with him, and he leaves it in a crater on the moon in her memory.

It’s been one of the most talked about moments in the film, partially because it’s unclear if it’s the portrayal of a real event or a creation for the movie — but in the mind of Damien Chazelle, the scene we see depicted in First Man is what Neil Armstrong really did during his moonwalk:

I think it’s true, but no one knows for sure. We know that he brought… well, we know that he went off to a crater for 10 minutes and stood by himself, and didn’t tell anyone what he did, and no one knows what he did. It was off camera and whatnot. And he refused to disclose his flight manifest, which would say what he brought to the moon. And we also know that many astronauts in the lunar programs brought mementos of loved ones to leave – either dead loved ones are still living.

With First Man both being a contender in this year’s awards race, and soon arriving on home video, I had the immense pleasure of sitting down with both Damien Chazelle and Claire Foy this past weekend to discuss their collaboration. The primary subject of the conversation was the emotional fortitude displayed by Neil Armstrong during the years the movie depicts, and it naturally led talking about the bracelet scene.

While I admittedly was under the impression that it was fictionalized, the director offered up some interesting evidence suggesting that the bracelet scene could have happened as depicted. He freely admits that it’s not something that can ever really be verified, since Neil Armstrong never spoke about it before his death in 2012, but there are enough puzzle pieces — or, weirdly, lack thereof — to start putting together a picture.

The idea of Neil Armstrong leaving his daughter’s bracelet on the moon originated in James Hansen’s biography, First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong, which screenwriter Josh Singer adapted in the making of the film. But even while he never got a 100% straight answer in regards to the matter, Damien Chazelle stills finds that this version of the story speaks very much to Armstrong’s personality. Continuing, he explained,

That’s where Jim Hansen, the biographer, got the idea. Did he go to the crater to leave something behind? And he talked with Neil’s sister, June, who said she didn’t know for sure, but she thought he did or she liked to think he did. So we did that, but in a way, I think it was not just the idea of that moment that I found beautiful, but also just the fact, of course, if it did happen, that he never talked about it. That’s just typical Neil.

Because First Man is a feature film and not a documentary, it arguably has the license to weigh factual truth and emotional truth as it sees fit, and even if it’s not entirely real the bracelet scene still does very much fit into that latter category. What’s most important above all is that it was a particular moment that speaks to Neil Armstrong’s character and the man he was, and Damien Chazelle feels that the scene did exactly that job. Said the director,

Going back to what I find sort of heartbreaking about him, that’s sort of the closest he could ever come to maybe finding some sort of catharsis. But even when sitting there in front of the person who would understand his loss more than anyone, his wife, who shares the loss, he still would be, like in the last scene of the film, unable to actually talk about it.

First Man has been racking up significant award nominations in the past few weeks, and time will tell if/how many times it will be mentioned when the Academy Award categories are announced on Tuesday, January 22nd. For those of you who missed it in theaters, or really want to see it again, it’s currently available for DigitalHD purchase — and those of you who are all about physical editions will find 4K, Blu-ray and DVD copies available in stores also on January 22nd.

Pete Davidson’s Joke About Ariana Grande’s Complimenting His Penis Is…A Lot

Pete Davidson is back to making awkward jokes about his ex-fiancée, Ariana Grande. He first did this in October, when news broke about the couple’s split. “Does anybody have any open rooms? Looking for a roommate?” he said during a comedy show at the time, referring to the apartment the two shared that he, ultimately, had to leave. Now he’s turning his attention to the comments Grande made about his penis.

“I don’t like that she talked all that shit for my penis,” Davidson said during a set at the Tarrytown Music Hall in New York on Saturday (January 12), according to People. “Everything is huge to her. Why would she tell everyone that I have a huge penis? So that every girl who sees my dick for the rest of my life is disappointed.”

These quotes are…a lot, to say the least. For context, Grande made cracks about Davidson’s penis on two separate occasions: in a since-deleted tweet from June and during her “Thank U, Next” video when she wrote “HUUUUUGE” next to a photo of him.

Some people on Twitter aren’t exactly here for Davidson’s comments. They take issue with his claiming to be offended by Grande’s comments when he’s made several uncomfortable jokes about her body—like joking about switching her birth control with Tic Tacs and saying he’s “never been prouder” than when Bill Clinton appeared to be ogling her at Aretha Franklin’s funeral.

Others, however, came to Davidson’s defense, saying he’s a comedian and probably didn’t mean any harm by these jokes.

Regardless of intent, though, I just have one thing to say about this entire situation: Thank you, next.

Dr. Dennis Gross Acne Mask Review – Here’s How It Works

As far as big skin care splurges go, LED treatments feel somewhat anticlimactic. They’re designed to penetrate deep in the skin to treat inflamed zits, calm redness from healing breakouts, and lessen the appearance of fine lines. But, they lack the sensorial delivery of an especially luxurious cream or the gentle tingle of an acid peel. The first time I tried one, I questioned if it was even doing anything other than silently bathing my face in different colors. It’s not that I particularly want light-based devices to suddenly heat up or sting me (if you experience either of those things, something is going very wrong), but the experience of feeling nothing at all takes some getting used to.

Persist, though, and you’ll be rewarded. Having tried multiple in-office LED sessions to counteract occasional breakouts or inflammation (administered by dermatologists and aestheticians), I’ve noticed that my skin looks calmer and clearer for a surprising amount of time with consistent treatment—weeks instead of days compared to topical facials. And there’s no downtime or post-treatment redness to contend with, which is always a bonus. Still, I often wondered if at-home versions of these treatments could accurately duplicate these results. I’ve briefly flirted with a couple of handheld LED pens before, but you can tell just by looking at them that they’re not very practical for covering a large surface area when you get multiple surprise pimples, I’d rather spend 10 seconds dabbing on a zit cream.

None of this put a dent in my curiosity when Dr. Dennis Gross launched the DRx SpectraLite FaceWare Pro, a futuristic, hands-free acne mask that’s also said to treat fine lines and wrinkles (also the case for other acne topicals like prescription Retin-A). It’s not the first example in this category, but it’s the one that seemed most convincing to me. (This is the brand that changed my skin with their resurfacing Alpha Beta peels, one of the best products I’ve ever used.) I was all but sold, but the $435 price tag brought me to a screeching halt. As eye-catching as it was, could any mask really be worth that amount of money?

Rather than do my usual routine of agonizing endlessly over the answer, I consulted two third-party experts, Jessica Weiser, M.D., dermatologist at New York Dermatology Group, and dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, M.D.. To get the big question out of the way, both confirmed that the device is indeed doing more than changing colors.

“The science behind this device is legitimate, and these types of light therapy are offered in many dermatology practices including my own,” says Dr. Weiser, who points out that one big upside of LED treatments is that they work on all skin types and tones. “Additionally, LED and light therapy are thought to be safe during pregnancy and breastfeeding when acne treatments are extremely limited.”

This mask utilizes three versions of LED therapy. The FDA-cleared device sits comfortably atop your face, held in place by an adjustable strap and coated with a cushy layer of silicone. It’s a little heavier than expected when I first pick it up, but it doesn’t budge or slide once I slide it over my head. Inside, there are 100 red mode LEDs and 62 blue ones; you can use them separately or together for a total of three treatments, depending on which benefits you want to focus on. The button sits at the top of your forehead, and each press activates a different mode. While you can certainly harness all the benefits by turning both sets of LEDs on, it’s helpful to know what each is meant to do.

“Red light has anti-inflammatory properties, while blue light helps lower levels of acne-causing bacteria on the skin,” explains Dr. Zeichner. According to Dr. Weiser, red light also stimulates collagen production, while amber light (included in the red LEDs) helps decrease sun damage. The latter isn’t meant to target your breakouts, but rather improve the smoothness and evenness of your skin—and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The SpectraLite FaceWare is the type of daily product that works as treatment and prevention in one, provided that you’re patient and consistent. “[It] will work better for inflammatory blemishes, but can help heal and restore all acne-prone skin,” confirms Dr. Weiser. “Acne should show early signs of improvement in 2-4 weeks of light therapy, but it will take 2-3 months of consistent treatment for optimal results.” (The brand also states up-front that proper course of treatment should last at least 10 weeks, although you’ll start seeing the benefits well before that.)

Another benefit of adding this to your routine is that it both works with and amplifies whatever you’re already using; in fact, you’ll see more results if you pair it with your usual regimen. Dr. Zeichner recommends it in conjunction with common topical ingredients like benzoyl peroxide, while Dr. Weiser notes that you can combine it with oral medications like birth control or spironolactone. Two things it can’t cure? Congested pores (for blackheads, try these K-beauty sheet masks instead) and everyone’s least favorite form of breakout, cystic acne.

Dr. Zeichner concedes that the technology might help reduce the size of some acne cysts, but it can’t go further than that. “Cystic acne is triggered by hormones, [so] light therapy alone is often not sufficient because it is not treating the underlying hormonal trigger,” says Dr. Weiser. Those exceptions aside, you do get to enjoy plenty of upsides in one sleek package. I particularly like that it does its thing in a scant three minutes, without me having to lift a finger (after powering it on, that is). The light intensity looks identical to what I’ve experienced during a professional treatment, and both dermatologists approve of the tech behind the mask. Dr. Weiser does point out that in-office consultations will give you more customization for your individual needs; there’s greater control over the parameters of the LED and whether it should be combined with other treatments for optimal results. If you have cystic acne, that’s something to consider. For my purposes, the SpectraLite FaceWare is a pretty good live-in derm for my occasional bouts of acne and inflammation.

As for the price tag, there’s no getting around that—but it softens the blow to know that it does deliver on its claims. Splurge in peace with Dr. Zeichner’s final verdict in mind: “If the device does not cause too much harm to your pocketbook, I will give it the green light.” I’ll stop short of claiming that this is a necessity for everyone, but I’m officially sold. My justification: It’s a derm visit, spa day, and photo opp in one.

Miley Cyrus Wrote Liam Hemsworth a Sweet Love Letter for His Birthday

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are definitely living in that bubble of newlywed bliss right now. In December, they pulled off a surprise wedding at their Nashville home followed by a romantic honeymoon ski trip. Now, Cyrus is giving us even more insight into their (very cute) relationship with an Instagram love letter to her new husband in honor of his 29th birthday, appropriately captioned, “HBD 2 Da Hubz.”

As she points out, they first met when he was 19 and have shared many, many memories together over the course of their relationship. And, despite their fame, they seem like a normal couple. He leaves his dirty socks on the floor, but also does laundry—though sometimes this leads to shrunken T-shirts. They watch The Sandlot together. They eat Chinese on the couch when they’re hungover, love going on long drives to nowhere, and do late-night recipe searches for the breakfast they’re going to make the next morning.

Those aren’t the only incredibly sweet details the letter reveals. Cyrus writes that Hemsworth goes outside to check on the weather (instead of looking at his phone), loves Rupaul’s Drag Race, is a great listener, and even combs Cyrus’s hair. What a gem.

Read the full letter, below, and try not to get a little misty eyed.

“L, HBD to my #1 … When we met, you were 19, Today you are 29…I thought I could share some of my favorite things about my favorite dude in honor of this very special day. The way you look at me, the way you look at our dogs, our pigs, our horses, our cats, our fish. The way you look at your family … your friends … at strangers … at life. The way you look at the ocean and the way you always take your time. The way you go outside when I ask ‘what’s the weather like?’ instead of checking your phone …The look on your face when you receive good news and how you look AT the bad news.

I love how you always try things your way, but are never to[o] proud to ask for help. (Yes, I’ve noticed and taken note, I’m a work in progress). The way you paint, the colors you choose …I love your dirty socks on the floor cause that means YOU’RE HOME. I love when you introduce me to a new band, so when you’re away I can listen, and it feels like you’re here. I love watching The Sandlot with you. I love laying in bed late at night looking for new recipes, only going to sleep so we can wake up and make breakfast together having a hot cup of coffee (almost as hot as you are).

I love those little lines around your eyes when you laugh or look into the sun…I love the way we speak in our own language. Sometimes with just a look. I love laying on the couch eating Chinese when we’re hung over from the night before. I love going to a random party and remembering basically everyone is fake AF out here and how lucky I am to share a life with someone so REAL. I love the way you always listen & the way that you care… (Even when it’s about RuPaul’s Drag Race.) I love having a teeth brushin’ partner & when I’m lazy how you’ll comb my hair.

I even love when you shrink my favorite t-shirt in the dryer — because having a boyfriend (oh em gee I almost forgot you’re my friggen husband now) that does laundry is pretty much the best thing ever. I love taking turns and sharing with you. I love taking long drives, sometimes going nowhere. I love how you’ll sit and listen to me pluck out a new tune on the guitar for hours … I love the way you mumble out loud when you read a new script or book. I love how you learn and grow. I love writing songs about you on the piano. I love how you let ME be ME.”

Along with the sweet letter, Cyrus also shared an adorable video of Hemsworth rocking out and a throwback photo from 2009:

Happy birthday!

Did Meghan Markle Just Reveal Her Due Date?

In October 2018, Kensington Palace announced that Meghan Markle is pregnant and due in the spring. The Duchess of Sussex reportedly confirmed this herself to well-wishers at an engagement today (January 14) in Birkenhead, according to several royals reporters on site. Not only that, she apparently offered some insight about when specifically her royal baby is coming next season.

“For those who want to know about these things: Meghan told one lady in the crowd that she is 6 months pregnant and another woman that her due date is around April,” Chris Ship, the royal editor for ITV News, tweeted on Monday.

Emily Nash, the the royal editor for Hello!, corroborated this, tweeting, “Meghan has told wellwishers in Birkenhead that she is six months pregnant – due end of April/beginning of May! Lots of baby chat today!”

It’s been a whirlwind few months for Markle and Prince Harry. Their baby announcement came at the beginning of their royal tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and Tonga. This took them right into the holiday season, where they reportedly spent some quality time with the queen. Their engagement in Birkenhead is the couple’s first official business of 2019.

Markle hasn’t said much about her pregnancy to the public, as is royal protocol. She did, however, joke last month that she was “looking very pregnant” at an event. We love a relatable duchess!

“Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May [2018] and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public,” Kensington Palace wrote at the time of Markle’s pregnancy announcement in October. Let the countdown to the royal baby begin!

Game of Thrones Season 8: Everything We Know So Far

Every day, it seems like another headline about Game of Thrones season eight goes viral, but here’s the thing: Even with so much chatter, we still don’t know much. A lot of what’s out there now is conjecture, rumors, and speculation. It’s basically the cast members saying what they think or hope happens next season, but nothing is really concrete. HBO is doing an excellent job at creating buzz around the show without revealing anything—not that Game of Thrones needs promotion.

That being said, there are some things about Game of Thrones season eight that we do know for sure. It should hold you over until the series finally premieres…in April 2019. OK, so maybe it won’t do that, but it’ll scratch your GoT itch for today, at least.

First up is the series trailer, which HBO just revealed. Take a look:

Here’s everything else we know (we’ll update this post as more facts come in):

1. It’s premiering April 14, 2019. And, yes, this is the final season.

2. It’s only going to be six episodes long. However, TV Guide reports these episodes will be longer, maybe even feature length. Two-hour GoT episodes? Sign me up. All of the scripts are written and the directors (which include David Nutter and Miguel Sapochnik) are in place. Each episode is reportedly “monumental.” (With a $15 million per-episode budget, they better be.)

3. Cersei Lannister is probably going to die. She’s morphed into the full-on antagonist of the series, which means she’ll most likely meet her demise as Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen rise to more power. Lena Headey even suggested this in a recent interview with Time magazine. In fact, she assumed her character would die by the end of season seven. “I was really in shock [when I found out I lived],” she said. “I think obviously, now, there’s got to be some body count at the end of [season] eight.”

4. They shot multiple finales. In an attempt to keep the press from leaking the show’s ending. Smart move, HBO.

5. Two new child characters will appear in the final season. According to TV Guide, one is a Northern girl and the other is a boy who’s only described as coming from a poor family. How they’ll each play into the story line is unknown at this time.

6. The cast apparently didn’t even get scripts for the episodes. Instead, they were reportedly fed lines through an earpiece. Producers hope this would prevent scripts from being leaked. In light of the HBO hack from last year, we understand why they’re taking such precautions.

7. Sansa will face a big challenge next season. “There’s a new threat, and all of a sudden she finds herself somewhat back in the deep end,” Sophie Turner told Variety. “And without Littlefinger, it’s a test for her of whether she can get through it. It’s a big challenge for her, without this master manipulator having her back. This season is more a passionate fight for her than a political, manipulative kind of fight.”
