Matthew McConaughey Says How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days Is ‘Teed Up’ for a Sequel

Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson were romantic comedy gold in 2003’s How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. And get this: McConaughey is down for a sequel. 

Nothing’s been confirmed yet, but when asked on E!’s Daily Pop if there could be a sequel to the beloved film, he said, “Possibly.” 

“I mean, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days is teed up, you know, teed up for one that you could easily do a sequel,” McConaughey said, according to People. “And that was a really good one. As far as romantic comedies go, that was a really good one.”

“And it lasts!” the actor continued. “People still love that one. I enjoyed that one quite a bit.”

 How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, for the uninitiated, centers on a magazine journalist, Andie (Hudson), who pitches a story in which she has to drive a man away using classic “clingy girlfriend” tactics, like crashing a guys’ poker night and talking about weddings. The dude she picks is named Ben (McConaughey), an advertising executive, but he isn’t so easily rattled. Why? He himself made a bet with co-workers that he could get a woman to fall in love with him in 10 days. So he’ll do whatever it takes to stay with Andy—even though she’s actively trying to drive him away. 

It’s a charming, hilarious rom-com filled with hijinks that have become pop culture canon. The love fern! Princess Sophia! The Celine Dion concert! It’s all so good. 

Matthew McConaughey isn’t the only one who’s indulged the idea of a How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days sequel. Hudson talked about it in a recent interview with Elle.

“I’ve always thought about what Matthew and I’s characters would be now, if we were still together,” she said. “It’s actually probably a good amount of time [that has passed] to make a movie about it. We probably would have gotten married with kids. We’re probably miserable right now!” 

Miserable or not, I’d certainly like to see where Andy and Ben are in 2020. And I know I’m not alone. 

We Finally Have a Premiere Date for Matt James’s Season of The Bachelor

The 25th season of ABC’s The Bachelor will make (long overdue) history with its first Black male lead, Matt James. The big announcement was made on June 12 on Good Morning America after years of fans’ calling for more diversity in the franchise, and a more recent campaign amid protests across America for racial justice. 

When asked if it was “too little, too late,” James said, “I don’t think it’s ever the wrong time to do the right thing. We can’t have change until we put that first foot forward.” (He had previously been cast as one of the suitors for The Bachelorette with Clare Crawley.) 

“Certainly no one is blind to what is happening in the world, so hopefully this announcement serves as a bit of optimism during a time that we can really use this, but I don’t want this to look like we’re patting ourselves on the back or taking a victory lap,” ABC executive Rob Mills told Variety. “We know this is a few grains of sand in a very big hourglass. It’s taken a while to get where we are, and we will continue to go further, and I acknowledge it may not be enough. In the last few years, I believe it’s gotten better, and with the announcement of [Matt James], I hope it keeps getting better. We are very excited about Matt.”

Here’s everything we know so far about the upcoming season of The Bachelor. 

The premiere date: ABC confirmed in November that the premiere of James’s season of The Bachelor is January 4. 

The suitors: ABC released photos of the 43 women competing for James’s heart on Tuesday, October 6. See all the pics here. It appears we may have a Kelley Flanagan situation on our hands. According to Reality Steve, one of the contestants, Madison, “was dating Matt last summer when Tyler [Cameron] was seeing GiGi [Hadid].” 

What he’s looking for: It sounds as though James (and his mom) have high hopes for a happy ending. “I think the grandkid counter for my mom started when the announcement was made,” he said. “She wants a basketball team. I’ll have a minivan, as many as we can fit.”

Of Course Taylor Swift Fans Found Folklore Easter Eggs in Her New Capitol One Commercial

Taylor Swift fans love a good Easter egg, and they found some in her new commercial for Capitol One. 

Let’s start with the most obvious reference. “It’s looking kinda chilly out today. What am I gonna wear? I think I’ll go with…a cardigan,” Swift says in the commercial. She then opens up a large closet filled with—you guessed it—the famous sweater that’s become synonymous with her latest album, Folklore. (The lead single was, of course, “Cardigan,” and you can even buy one on her website for $49. I have one and can attest they’re very yummy and perfect for a chilly day.) 

But Swift fans didn’t stop there. They went deeper because of course they did—and we love them for it. 

Hardcore fans posted revealing screenshots of the closet featured in the commercial. In it, they spotted a lime green dog statue—a reference to her song “The Last Great American Dynasty,” in which Swift sings, “She stole his dog and dyed it key lime green.” They also clocked a peace sign for the song “Peace”; a mirrorball symbolizing, um, “Mirrorball”; and the Folklore merch hourglass. Fans even spied Swift’s cat, Benjamin, in the commercial and a photo they think is of her and her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn. 

One particularly detailed fan pointed out the faint sounds of “Cardigan” playing in the background of the ad. “Woah @taylorswift13 did a new capital one commercial and I noticed because I heard the very soft piano part in cardigan in the background. Honestly highlight of my day,” they tweeted.

Honestly, the limit for Swiftie fan theories does not exist. 

Could a new Taylor Swift Folklore music video be on the way? Here’s hoping! We’ll gladly accept any song as a new single, too. (But a personal request: “The Last Great American Dynasty,” please!

Netflix’s Dash & Lily Will Be Your New Feel-Good Favorite

Dash & Lily, now streaming on Netflix, is the first holiday rom-com I’ve watched after the election, and let me tell you…it just hit different. 

Before last week, I was watching rom-coms and feel-good movies as escapism—a respite from the relentless agony that’s been 2020. But Joe Biden and Kamala Harris winning the 2020 election has instilled something in me I haven’t felt in a while: joy. Hope! Optimism! Pure happiness! So much so that Dash & Lily didn’t just feel like a far-fetched romance story, but something that could actually happen to me. Maybe in Biden and Harris’s America I too can start a relationship with a cute boy I never see but talk to via a notebook we leave all over New York City. Maybe that’s what 2021 has in store for all of us! 

I kid, but the sentiment is true. This rom-com didn’t feel like a Band-Aid for the bad times, but a garnish for the good times. Dash & Lily augmented the happiness I was already feeling, which made its effects even more pleasant. 

And Dash & Lily is so damn pleasant. The eight-episode series centers on Lily (Midori Francis), a NYC teen and hopeless romantic who loves Christmas. But everyone—her parents, brother, even her grandfather—all have holiday plans that leave her in the dust. So she gets creative and hides a journal inside The Strand bookstore with a cryptic message for a potential teen-male suitor. 

That journal is found by Dash (Austin Abrams), fellow NYC teen and Christmas antagonist—but he finds the notebook intriguing, so the two begin a pen-pal relationship. They write messages back and forth in the journal and leave it in spots all around New York City. Their identities remain hidden—Dash only learns Lily’s name after doing an insane dare—making the entire affair reminiscent of A Cinderella Story.

The movie is formulaic but fun. You know at some point Dash and Lily will meet IRL—but the journey there is interesting. The zany adventures they go on feel like a love letter to NYC. There are pitstops in Central Park, an underground nightclub, a Brooklyn restaurant that puts cheese on pie, Two Boots Pizza, The Strand—so many things that feel quintessentially New York. The film is just as much an homage to the city—in all its wild, unpredictable wonder—as it is to young love. For it to come out in a year when New Yorkers can’t be as spontaneous in the city they love means the world. It certainly meant a lot to me. 

Mississippi’s Asya Branch Is the New Miss USA

At the age of 10, Branch’s father was arrested on charges for armed robbery and kidnapping. He would go on to serve 12 years in prison. Drawing from her personal experiences, including the financial and emotional struggles her mother took on as a single parent, Branch was compelled to launch an initiative for other children with parents behind bars: Finding Your Way: Empowering Children of Incarcerated Parents. It was her work on the issue that led to her to that roundtable discussion at the White House on how to “reintegrate inmates back into society.” 

She’s a defender of gun rights, but believes in safety training 

During the final speaking round of the Miss USA competition, Branch and four other finalists had to make a statement on a randomly selected topic. She drew the card on gun laws. “As someone who grew up in a home with guns, I learned at an early age how to load, how to fire, and gun safety,” Branch said. “And I think that education should be available to everyone. I believe that we should require people to pass training and safety courses before they’re allowed to purchase a gun and before receiving a permit.”

But while she is in favor of certain protective measures, she was clear about her defense of the Second Amendment: “I think it’s important that we not ban guns because obviously people will find a way to get what they want anyways. But I think it’s our Second Amendment right and we just need more safety surrounding that.” 

She owns her own beauty brand

The newly crowned Miss USA  is the founder of Branch Beauty, a line of “cruelty-free products to enhance the natural beauty you already have.” Affordably priced, it features makeup must-haves, including neutral-toned eyeshadows along with liquid liners and lipstick in a range of pink and nudes.  

She’s a talented singer

Branch has used Instagram to share music covers. Singing since the age of four, she handles the vocals while her partner, Briley Morgan, plays his guitar. The duo have performed covers of Billie Eilish, Noah Cyrus, and Diplo. 

Chrissy Teigen Shares the ‘Beautiful’ Way Luna Is Honoring Baby Jack

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend suffered an unimaginable tragedy when they lost their son Jack due to pregnancy complications. 

“We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before. We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn’t enough,” Teigen wrote on Instagram at the time. 

Since then, they have been processing as a couple—along with Teigen‘s mom and their two children, Luna and Miles. Teigen recently shared how her 4-year-old daughter is sweetly honoring the baby brother she never got to know. 

“I’m just thinking a lot about Jack today,” Teigen wrote on Instagram in early November, along with some videos. “Our house is very open about life, death, grief, everything really. We try to explain things well and answer every question imaginable in a beautiful, spiritual but literal way. I know this is a weird post but I just wanted to share these to always remember my incredibly empathetic little mini. Life is infinitely better with her in it. I miss u, Jack. We miss you a lot.”

In the videos, Teigen showed the small box the family received containing Jack’s ashes tied with some holy Thai string (a nod to Teigen’s own heritage). Next to the box are some tokens from Luna: a therapy bear and a piece of her favorite snack, Pirate’s Booty. “This is the cutest, most beautiful thing I have ever seen,” Chrissy Teigen says. In a second video, Luna says, “Hi guys. Hi, this is baby Jack, and I’m Teddy. I’m Luna. How are you doing today?”

“People say an experience like this creates a hole in your heart,” Teigen recently wrote in a powerful essay about the loss. “A hole was certainly made, but it was filled with the love of something I loved so much. It doesn’t feel empty, this space. It feels full.”

We’re glad to see that space is continuing to fill with love and healing. 

Keke Palmer Responds to Backlash Over Her EBT Card Comments

Palmer, who’s grown up in the spotlight since 2006’s Akeelah and the Bee, is another example of the overwhelming majority of celebrities in American culture. While Palmer more than likely thought her tweet was a harmless take on getting fresh, healthy foods to low-income people, it reveals a long-standing disconnect between those who have access to wealth and those who do not. It also shows she has absolutely no idea how EBT cards work.

Many intersecting issues, which are systematically constructed to be inequitable, contribute to low-income families and the inability to access fresh foods. Throughout the pandemic, reports show that millions of Americans are struggling to afford food, rent, and other basic necessities. 

And after the wave of protests broke out after the murders of George Floyd and Breanna Taylor, urban areas with food deserts like Chicago were left with less food options than before. Palmer, who has probably never seen an EBT card in her adult life, and her sunnily ignorant and optimistic take on food inequity oversimplifies an increasingly complex issue.

On Twitter, Palmer elaborated and wrote that “my tweet was pertaining to issues w/ healthy foods being [too] expensive & thinking it should be free for those w/ EBT cards. This was not a suggestion for solving all low income issues. Solely a hopeful solution [for] those with EBT that want to run it up w/ meat & produce.”

No doubt, Keke had good intentions. But what many celebrities like Palmer fail to realize is that good intentions don’t solve systemic problems. Tweeting about what people on EBT should or shouldn’t have access to when 35% of low-income adults have to source food from food banks isn’t the woke take on food equity you think it is. 

Instead of tweeting, Palmer could have used her celebrity privilege to highlight urban farms or opened her purse to donate to food equity programs. Instead, she did what so many seem to think is enough: tweet about it.

Palmer, before deleting the tweet, insisted that she only meant to say that fresh foods should be free for EBT users. She then tweeted at the new Vice President Elect and also tagged Joe Biden. “’Hey @KamalaHarrris I know you just started but me and my friends were talking about it and we think EBT cards should swipe free on all items considered HEALTHY.”

Everything You Need to Know About the Coronavirus Vaccine

The U.S. just reached a dark milestone: 10 million reported coronavirus cases. But there is also big news for a potential coronavirus vaccine. On November 9, Pfizer and German drugmaker BioNTech, announced that data from their ongoing coronavirus vaccine trial shows the vaccine is more than 90 percent effective in preventing COVID-19, per the New York Times.

The Pfizer BioNTech vaccine is just one of eleven potential coronavirus vaccines currently in late-stage trials. “If Pfizer already has promising results other trials may have some good news soon as well,” says Dr. Purvi Parikh, M.D., an allergist and immunologist with the Allergy and Asthma Network and co-investigator on the vaccine trials. A second vaccine from Moderna, which uses similar technology, is expected to deliver efficacy results later this month.

So what does this mean about when you’ll actually be able to get a safe, reliable coronavirus vaccine? Here’s everything you need to know.

When will a coronavirus vaccine be approved?

Before the vaccine can be approved by the Food and Drug Administration, Pfizer (and any other drugmakers with a promising vaccine trial) will have to finish collecting two months of safety data. Pfizer will be done collecting this information in late November. Assuming everything checks out, the company plans to ask for fast-tracked emergency authorization from the FDA, according to the New York Times.

Will the coronavirus vaccine be safe?

The FDA is responsible for making sure that any fast-tracked vaccine not only works but is safe. “The vaccine must go through a minimum of three phases before approval, the last being the most thorough with a minimum of 30,000 individuals tested, especially those in high-risk groups such as the elderly, those with diabetes, heart disease, and obesity, and racial groups with health disparities,” Dr. Parikh says.

There are still some unknowns: like whether or not a vaccine will be safe for kids or pregnant women. Pfizer announced in October that it would start testing its vaccine in kids but so far there are no trials that include pregnant women—who are more likely to suffer from serious complications of the coronavirus. “We will need that data to determine safety as every group is different,” says Dr. Parikh.

Like any vaccine, there will likely be some side effects but so far, participants in the clinical trials have only shown mild reactions, says Dr. Parikh. “Most commonly we have been seeing muscle soreness, fever, and pain at the injection site. In all cases, side effects fully resolve in a couple of days,” she says.

How long will you have immunity from the coronavirus?

The short answer: experts don’t know how long immunity from the coronavirus vaccine will last. The vaccine may offer protection for life or it may act more like the flu vaccine and only last a few months.

Will you need a vaccine if you’ve already had coronavirus?

It’s uncertain whether the millions of people around the world who have had COVID-19 and recovered will need to get a vaccine. A vaccine trial run by Astra Zeneca is including recovered patients in their trials, says Dr. Parikh but the Pfizer trial does not. “As we learn more we will have better guidelines but I personally feel as an immunologist that everyone should receive it as we are seeing cases of reinfection and some are more severe the second time,” Dr. Parikh says.

When will people be able to start getting vaccinated?

According to Pfizer, if their coronavirus vaccine is approved by the FDA, the company says that by the end of 2020 it will have manufactured enough for 15 to 20 million people, per the New York Times.
