Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard Forgot Their Wedding Anniversary: 'Neither of Us Remember Which Day'

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard know they’re married, they just can’t tell you when it happened.

On Monday, the Good Place star, 39, revealed on Instagram that she and Shepard, 44, forgot a special date in their marriage last week.

“We were reminded by family and friends that at some point last week, it was our 5 year wedding anniversary,” Bell began her caption of a sweet shot of the couple.

However, the actress was quickly corrected in her own comments section: The actors actually wed six years ago, not five!

“I think it was 6! Case in point, all love,” one follower wrote, to which Bell responded, “hahahah oops, your right it was 6yrs!!!!! 👏👏👏.”

In her lengthy Instagram caption, the actress admitted that neither she nor Shepard remembered the exact date that they tied the knot — which was Oct. 17, 2013. (The couple shares daughters Delta, 4½, and Lincoln, 6½.)

“That’s because we have been living the celebration of our commitment every moment since,” the mother of two continued. “I find when you are living with gratitude each moment, the dates become irrelevant. To get to wake up next to someone who has put hard work, respectful fights, patience, understanding and gratitude into your relationship is the definition of love.”

“I will never remember the date of our anniversary @daxshepard, and i know you won’t either,” Bell added. “And thats just one more thing i love about us.”

In a second Instagram, Bell posted a photo of the couple kissing after learning it was in fact their anniversary — as witnessed by their dog Frank.

“Here’s the morning we both got texts from grandma saying ‘happy anniversary!'” Bell wrote. “We were both on our way out the door but stopped for a quick hot and heavy make out sesh while Frank stood close like a creeper.”

The couple, who began dating in 2007, told PEOPLE in March that they’re the first to admit their 12 years together have been filled with ups and downs.

“We definitely had to work really hard at being a couple because we’re both incredibly, painfully stubborn, and we’re pretty much opposites,” Shepard said.

After their intimate courthouse nuptials in 2013, the couple — who often buck tradition — did feel a greater sense of security.

“It just felt more normal. We do a lot of things differently, but there’s a couple things where I’m just like, ‘God, can we not just fall inside the lines once in a while? I want to wear a pretty piece of jewelry. It’s fun!’” Bell said. “It felt nice afterwards.”

Now 12 years into their relationship, Shepard and Bell said they are taking stock on the incredible life and family they’ve built together.

“All these movies from the ’80s taught us that it’s love at first sight, and it is supposed to be easy and [that] all you have to do is find that person,” Bell said. “It took me a while to realize, ‘Oh, that was such a lie,’ because things that you work really, really, really hard for always yield the best results.”

Kerry Katona says she’s had a vagina scan and medicine stuck up her bum as she remains in hospital with mystery illness – The Sun

KERRY Katona has revealed she has undergone a battery of tests, including a scan of her vagina, and had suppositories up her bum after being hospitalised by a mystery illness.

The reality star, 39, was rushed to hospital last week after suffering from unexplained pains and was hooked up to a drip.


Now the mum of five has revealed all the investigations she has had in her new! magazine column.

"Woe is me, I’m writing this from my hospital bed!" she wrote.  "I’ve been here for three days and the doctors still don’t know
what’s wrong with me.

"Initially I thought it was a bad case of kidney stones because the pain was so hideous, but that’s been ruled out."

She continued: I’ve had a CT scan, an internal vaginal scan, an MRI and suppositories stuck up my bum – all sorts!"


But the optimistic lass managed to look on the bright side.

She revealed of her hospital stay: "I’m loving it a little bit – it’s a nice break from dealing with the kids and the housework!"

And she also insisted her fans don't need to worry about her.

"Just to reassure everyone, I’ll be alright," the former Atomic Kitten singer said. "I’m not dying, I’m just in a lot of pain."


Kerry has posted regular updates from her hospital bed on her instagram account.

Four days ago, she uploaded a video of herself in her NHS gown with a tag round her wrist and told her fans that there was "still no news".

She has been cheered up, however, by visits from her loved ones.

She posted a selfie with her youngest daughter Dylan Jorge, 5, as she popped to her bedside.

"Awww look who’s come to see me!!!! ❤️❤️❤️ 1 out of my 5!!! Will let @123_mollymc off as she does live in another country 😂🤦‍♀️," she posted alongside a picture of her cradling the youngster.

Boyfriend Ryan Mahoney, who she snapped learning back on a chair on her ward, has also been by her side.

She wrote: "Bless him! Keeping me company xxxx."

Martin Scorsese Shoots Down Accusation His Films Lack Female Characters

Martin Scorsese has dominated headlines in recent weeks for his comments slamming Marvel movies as “theme parks” and not cinema, but it was another topic that turned heads during the director’s press conference at the Rome Film Festival. Scorsese’s Netflix gangster epic “The Irishman” screened as the centerpiece selection of this year’s event. During the press conference (via THR/Kinótico), an Italian press member asked Scorsese why his movies are dominated by male characters and show little interest in female stores. Scorsese immediately shot down the criticism.

“No. That’s not even a valid point. That’s not valid,” Scorsese said. “I can’t… That goes back to 1970. That’s a question that I’ve had for so many years. Am I supposed to? If the story doesn’t call for it…It’s a waste of everybody’s time. If the story calls for a female character lead, why not?”

“The Irishman” producer Emma Tillinger Koskoff also refuted the claim, citing Scorsese’s 1974 drama “Alice Doesn’t Live Here.” The movie featured Ellen Burstyn as its lead character (she was nominated for the Best Actress Oscar) and is often cited as one of the defining feminist films of the New Hollywood era.

“Oh, that’s only one film. They don’t count that,” Scorsese said when Koskoff brought up “Alice.” “‘Age of Innocence,’ they don’t count that.” Scorsese’s 1993 adaptation of Edith Wharton’s novel of the same name featured leading roles for Michelle Pfeiffer and Winona Ryder.

Koskoff then brought up “Casino,” which famously starred Sharon Stone in an Oscar-nominated performance. “’Casino.’ Sharon Stone’s great in that. They don’t count that. Forget it. It’s all these men,” Scorsese added, suggesting claims his films lack women are unfounded. Press members in attendance applauded Scorsese’s defense.

“Sure, I’d like to do,” Scorsese said. “But you know what, I’m 76 now. How am I going to have the time? I don’t know what’s going to happen. We don’t know. I don’t have time anymore.”

The conversation around Scorsese’s portrayal of female characters has been reignited following “The Irishman,” which world premiered on opening night of the New York Film Festival. The actresses in the film only have small roles, and some critics have expressed frustration with Anna Paquin’s lack of dialogue. The movie is opening in select theaters November 1 before launching November 27 on Netflix.

Why Watchmen's Damon Lindelof Is Addressing Fans Now

HBO

Damon Lindelof knows there are people out there who immediately balked at his Watchmen series. In fact, the Lost and The Leftovers executive producer initially balked at the idea. But in a lengthy letter to viewers and fans of the original source material, Lindelof is addressing that very issue head on.

Posted to go along with the series premiere, Lindelof’s letter explains his relationship with the Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons comic series, his relationship with his father and the many times he’s been asked about adapting the comics for TV.

“I am forty-five and I am writing a letter to the fans. The fans of Watchmen. It’s unnecessarily wordy and an exercise in oversharing, but nothing gets people on your side more than telling them about the moment your father died. Sharing such intimate details with strangers feels needy and pathetic and exploitative and yucky and necessary and freeing. I am also looking for an elegant way to escape from this device of quantum observance, a device appropriated from Mr. Moore so that I can speak to hose fans from the bottom of my cold, thieving heart. Perhaps I could switch from referring to them in the first person and shift into the second, thus bringing them closer to the first?”

Addressing fans, Lindelof said, “First and foremost, if you are angry that I’m working on Watchmen, I am sorry. You may be thinking I can’t be that sorry or I wouldn’t be doing it. I concede the point, but I hope it doesn’t invalidate the apology, which I offer with sincerity and respect.”

Lindelof went on to say he respects Moore and even wrote to the acclaimed author about why he’s defying the scribe’s wishes and adapting the comics for TV, but he did receive a blessing from Gibbons and felt compelled to tackle the project.

View this post on Instagram

Many ticks and many tocks since I first wrote this. Watchmen changed my life. It taught me how to tell stories and 33 years after I first read it, I am still in awe of this masterpiece. Love or hate the finished product, here’s what we did and why we did it.

A post shared by Damon (@damonlindelof) on

“I am compelled despite the inevitable pushback and hatred I will understandably receive for taking on this particular project. This ire will be maximally painful because its source. That source being you,” he wrote. “The true fans.”

The letter, which you can see in full above, details the show’s diverse creative team, as well as Lindelof’s feelings on appropriation of Moore’s work.

“We have no desire to ‘adapt’ the twelve issues Mr. Moore and Mr. Gibbons created thirty years ago. Those issue are sacred ground and they will not be retread nor recreated no reproduced nor rebooted,” he wrote. “They will, however be remixed.”

So, the comics are “canon,” but don’t call this a sequel.

“This story will be set in the world its creators painstakingly built…but in the tradition of the work that inspired it, this new story must be original. It has to vibrate with the seismic unpredictability of its own tectonic plates. It must ask new questions and explore the world through a fresh lens. Most importantly, it must be contemporary.”

Watchmen airs Sundays, 9 p.m. on HBO.

Everything You Need to Know About 'Baby' Season 3 on Netflix

There are only six episodes in the second season of Netflix’s Baby, so if you already plowed through all of them the first weekend after the release, you’re not alone! The finale provided plenty of twists and turns, and it perfectly set the show up for a third season. The question is, will it get one? Here’s what we know so far.

First, the bad news.

There’s technically no news yet about whether Baby is getting a third season. Last year, the show premiered on U.S. Netflix in November, and they announced the second season a month later. So considering it just dropped on Netflix this past weekend, we might get news as early as next month. Netflix announced the the renewal last year on Baby‘s Instagram account, so keep an eye out on that for details. We’ll also update this post for ya, to make it easy. Cross your fingers!!

View this post on Instagram

The time has come! 💖Baby S2 is now available. #BabyNetflix

A post shared by Baby (@baby_netflix) on

But some good news…

If you’ve already binged the second season in its entirety, you know the finale left a BUNCH of unanswered questions for viewers. Like, what the hell is Damiano going to do about that private investigator? And what’s going to happen with Ludo’s stalker (who was secretly working with Fiore)? Are Damiano and Chiara going to be officially done now that he knows the truth about her? There’s TONS of material to cover.

Plus, the series is based on a true story. In real life, there were people who went to jail for what happened, which obviously hasn’t happened in the show yet. So not only did the show set itself up for another season, but there’s more source material, too.

So who would theoretically come back for season 3?

Because there’s no official news yet, it’s hard to tell, but it would be pretty hard to imagine doing the show without Chiara, Ludo, Damiano, and the rest of the essential characters. At the same time, these kids eventually have to go to college, right?

Cosmopolitan will update this post when more information becomes available.

Don’t Tell The Bride groom forces sobbing bride to sleep in tent on wedding eve

Don't Tell The Bride viewers couldn't believe their eyes last night when the groom forced his bride to sleep in a tent on the night before their wedding.

Meanwhile the groom stayed in a swanky hotel and said he hoped the experience would force his fiance to not be so high maintenance.

Jake, 26, has been branded the worst groom ever on the history of the Channel 4 show as his sobbing bride was forced to marry him without any of her beloved makeup and having only had a "rubbish" shower.

Rosie, 30, broke down in tears when she learned about Josh's plans for the day, while he was sipping on champagne with his friends in a luxury hotel.

She had dreamed of getting married in a beautifully decorated converted barn, but Jake had other ideas.

He explained that he thought she looked fine without makeup, but that she got insecure without it.

That's why he decided to force her his future wife to go without the makeup she desperately wanted.

"She'll say she looks 'rough' but to me she'd still look beautiful", he said.

The bridal party were led to the tent in the festival wedding under the illusion it was their second hen do.


But Rosie then realised she was about to marry Josh in front of 7,000 people at Wickham Festival in Fareham.

At first she didn't believe it, and said: "I'm not starting my wedding day in a tent… he wouldn't do that. The showers are rubbish – what are we going to do?"

She furiously refused to even have the "festival make-up" Josh booked her in for.

Crying, she said: "It's my f*****g wedding day. I'm not alright.


"I don't want to see him. I'm not getting ready. I want to be excited and enjoy the morning and I'm still sat in a tent."

Her sobbing mum added: "My daughter shouldn't have to go through this on her wedding day – she's supposed to feel special.

"Nothing special about putting a bit of glitter on in the morning. Just reiterates the fact that Jake doesn't care about how she's feeling."

While one of Rosie's bridesmaids also said: "He's put her through hell."

Viewers took to Twitter to fume about Jake's terrible decision.

One tweeted: "So he stays in a swanky hotel the night before their wedding whilst she has to stay in a tent and get married at a festival the next day. I'd absolutely murder him!"

"It's scary that the man she is about to be with forever hasn't considered her once or how she would feel", said another.

Another branded Jake the "WORST GROOM EVER!!"


Another asked: "He does appear to be overly clueless and selfish, which begs the question – why is she marrying him the first place??!"

Rosie also revealed that when Jake proposed to her, she didn't even get a ring until eight months later.

But she did come around in the end and seemed to enjoy her wedding day.

A quick word on how Netflix measures

The New York Times notes that unlike Nielsen, Netflix doesn’t typically share viewership and ratings data with the public, and its measurements are different from Nielsen. For Netflix, one view is counted if 70% of the film was watched during the first four weeks of its debut.

All the movies on the list raked in those views within thefirst month of their premieres. Moving forward, Netflix is banking on successwith its slate of new movies which includes The Irishman (MartinScorsese), Dolemite is My Name, The Laundromat, The King,and Marriage Story.

'Avengers: Endgame': Chris Hemsworth Says Script for the Movie Was Never Completely Finished

Imagine being an actor and never reading the entire script start-to-finish for the movie you’re starring in because it’s never been finished. That’s exactly what Chris Hemsworth says happened to him and the rest of the stars of Avengers: Endgame

The Marvel movie that broke all kinds of box office records went through nearly constant changes and rewrites. Sure, nothing’s perfect on the first try, especially movies. There are drafts and more drafts of a script before it’s finalized. And even then it’s common for actors to improvise lines — with the green light from production, of course — and for scenes to be tweaked or altered in the midst of filming. 

Chris Hemsworth and rest of ‘Avengers: Endgame’ read ‘odd version’ of script

While at ACE Comic-Con in Rosemont, Ill., Hemsworth, who played Thor in Avengers: Endgame and previous movies in the franchise (get the order of all the films here), said he and co-stars including Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man), Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye), Paul Rudd (Hank Pym/Ant-Man) among others, never got their hands on a complete script while they were filming the epic conclusion to all the Avengers movie that came before. 

“We got a script, or parts of the script and it was a very odd version of the script,” Hemsworth told the audience while speaking onstage, according to Men’s Health. “You could go and sit in a room and read the script but to be honest, it wasn’t even completed,” he added.

The 36-year-old actor continued saying, “The second half of shooting that movie was completely in their hands and being guided by what they had in store for you.” 

There were a lot of changes to the script

Since the movie came out on DVD and Blu-ray in August 2019, audiences were able to get a scene-by-scene breakdown from the writers, Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus, and directors, Anthony and Joe Russo, or the Russo brothers. 

In the commentary, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) learned a lot about what happened behind-the-scenes with the writing. They found out that many changes were made. 

For instance, Downey Jr. “instinctively” knew that one thing had to happen in his character’s last scene. He also suggested to McFeely and Markus that Iron Man/Stark have very few lines in the moments before his death. They had him snapping his fingers but knew the character needed a final, memorable line.

Ultimately, the scene could’ve been very different had editor Jeff Ford not suggested a callback to a line (“I am Iron Man”) from the first Iron Man movie in 2008. Plus, there’s the fact that the 54-year-old actor never said the same line twice. 

Black Widow, another character who met their end in Avengers: Endgame, got a drastic change to their last scene as well. The writers admitted the scene fans saw in the final cut of the movie proved to be “much better than what we had.” 

Now we know actors don’t necessarily need an entire script to play their parts. They can shoot their scenes without running the risk of accidentally sharing a spoiler during interviews like Evans once did.

Peaky Blinders season 5 cast: Who plays Isaiah Jesus? Who is Daryl McCormack?

Peaky Blinders is available to stream and download on Netflix and the BBC iPlayer now. The fifth series sees Tommy (played by Cillian Murphy) and the Peaky Blinders try to take down  Sir Oswald Mosley (Sam Claflin) and the Glasgow gang, The Billy Boys. Amongst all of the drama, eagle-eyed fans spotted that in the fifth season a different actor was playing Peaky Blinder Isaiah Jesus (Daryl McCormack). 

Who plays Isaiah Jesus?

Daryl McCormack stars as Isaiah Jesus in Peaky Blinders season five.

The role was originally played by Jordan Bolger, who left the show after the fourth season.

Bolger joined the cast of The CW’s sci-fi series The 100 as new character Miles Ezekiel Shaw and sadly, the filming scheduling for both shows clashed, meaning he could no longer play Isaiah. 

In July 2018, Bolger announced he was leaving Peaky Blinders on Twitter.

He wrote: “Disappointingly it seems production aren’t able to work round my other commitments so as it stands I won’t be returning. Peaky/Isaiah has been a big part of my life, a great experience and I’ve met some amazing people but this one is out of my control.”

READ MORE  Peaky Blinders: Why did Jordan Bolger leave Peaky Blinders?

In August 2019, the official Peaky Blinders twitter and Facebook account announced Bolger’s replacement.

Alongside a picture of McCormack in character as Isaiah Jesus pointing a gun, the tweet read: “Daryl McCormack joins the cast as Isaiah Jesus in #PeakyBlinders Series 5. Starts Sunday 25th August at 9pm on @bbcone. @DarylMcCormack.”

Fans took to Twitter to express their support for McCormack.

One fan wrote: “Honestly can’t wait to see how he portrays Isaiah but I know he’s gonna smash it.”

A second fan commented: “I’M SAID IT ONCE AND I’LL SAY IT AGAIN I AM I N L O V E.”

A third fan added: “ Can’t wait to see what this actor brings to the series. Loved the old Isaiah but they honestly are spot on in casting. I know he’s going to be good. The entire new cast looks fabulous! So excited!!!”

Speaking to Getty, McCormack said: “It’s fantastic, as an Irish actor, a young Irish actor, those are actors that I’ve been looking up to since I’ve started training.

“I don’t think I even get star-struck but I remember meeting Cillian for the first time and his piercing blue eyes looked into my soul and I was like ‘Oh my God I’m working with [him].

In season of five of Peaky Blinders, Isaiah has a close friendship with Finn Shelby (Harry Kirton).

Throughout the series, the pair are seen drinking and partying together.

Isaiah and Finn also work closely with Aberama Gold (Aiden Gillan) against the Billy Boys.

Sandra Oh Reveals a Huge 'Killing Eve' Spoiler

Killing Eve is the type of show that always keeps fans on the edge of their seats. And Sandra Oh is at the center of it all, portraying Eve Polastri in the show. Season 2 left us on a cliffhanger, as Villanelle shoots Eve and leaves her. But what will happen to the fan-favorite spy?

Warning: there are spoilers ahead for Killing Eve season 3, so if you’d rather not know what happens, stop reading now. However, if you’d like to be spoiled and find out what Sandra Oh revealed about season 3, keep reading.

What is Eve Polastri like, according to Oh?

In an interview with Porter, Sandra Oh mentions that the role of Eve is a “challenging” one. Perhaps “the most challenging of her career.” Why? Well, it all has to do with what Eve is going through.

According to Oh, “a lot of the time [she feels] Eve is fighting.” That is something that Oh herself can relate to, and probably a lot of fans as well. The actress believes that the show has a lot to do with “the depth of being seen” and a lot of “psychological depths she has to plumb.” She wonders if that’s why the show has struck a chord with so many people, especially women.

Oh understands how fans can relate to Eve. According to her, “Eve is changing, and the deeper you go, the deeper the resonance can be.” We all go through many changes throughout our lives, though perhaps not as intense as Eve’s. That constant changing and growing makes her easy to relate to.

What did Sandra Oh reveal about ‘Killing Eve’ Season 3?

What is it about her? #KillingEve

A post shared by Killing Eve (@killingeve) on

Every Killing Eve fan is probably wondering about Eve’s fate. Though many have probably guessed and theorized that Eve would be okay, it was hard to know for sure. Until now.

As Oh puts it, “so, obviously [she] didn’t die.” Yet what does that mean for season 3? According to the actress, season 3 of the show “is basically about coming back after that, emotionally.” Sounds like Oh will reach some new “psychological depths” with her acting.

And fans are likely looking forward to seeing Oh again and watching as Eve continues to change and grow.

What else can fans look forward to in season 3 of ‘Killing Eve’?

A post shared by Killing Eve (@killingeve) on

Oh didn’t reveal much to the interviewer from Porter after dropping some spoilers about Eve’s fate. Yet she did hint at other actors filming in some exciting places. According to the actress, “they are shooting [another storyline] elsewhere. [She] won’t tell you where; it’s fantastic!”

Sounds interesting! According to Oh, she “can’t believe [she] can’t go.” Hopefully, Killing Eve will have many more seasons, and Oh will get to film in many exciting places as the show goes on.

The role of Eve is a good one, though it is “challenging.” Hopefully, Eve will get to challenge Oh and delight fans for a long time. In any case, fans can definitely look forward to seeing Eve and Oh again in season 3 of the show. Fans love watching her get into and out of trouble.

And hopefully they will be able to do so for quite a while.
