Chris Martin’s birthday was on Saturday. There was a celebration and a lot of celebrities have been at the celebration, like his ex-wife, Gwyneth Paltrow, who also wished him Content Birthday on Instagram. Appropriate right after wishing her husband, Brad Falchuk, Content Birthday the day prior to – his bday is on March 1, similar as Justin Bieber: 


Fairly positive this occurred final year also. Quite civilised. Far more proof of how civilised – study superior – it all is exactly where G and her ex relations are concerned: Melanie Griffith was also observed at the celebration. Just to make it additional, additional clear, Melanie’s daughter is Dakota Johnson who is presently dating Chris. No photographs of Dakota but, naturally, if her ma was there, she was most likely there, inside as the host of the occasion, possibly, so this answers two queries: yes, Dakota and Chris are collectively, and yes, once more, she and G get on fantastic, which we currently knew simply because they have been all on vacation a couple of months ago. 

You know who else was there? For these of you questioning whether or not or not Gwyneth and Julia Roberts are nevertheless buddies, Julia Roberts showed up, photographed arm in arm with Sean Penn. Julia and Sean have identified each and every other a lengthy time. Do you recall a handful of years ago, he gave a speech at some awards show speaking about how a lot he loves her, so a lot that he would watch an complete film of her consuming? Here’s what he stated:

“[She] is one particular of the choose group of actresses who can make on-screen consuming attractive . . . I could watch her consume . . . for hours on finish, even if the meals got stuck in her teeth. I want her to make an consuming film in three-D, but the interactive supplies not only the three-D glasses, but also a virtual toothpick with which I could gather souvenirs correcting my insomnia with the comfort of these virtual morsels kept very carefully beneath my pillow.”

I seriously want somebody would inform him he’s not Nora Ephron. I really feel like Julia could be that particular person to inform him he’s not Nora Ephron but he most likely does not show her in advance the sh-t he writes prior to he says or publishes it. The final time we have been all graced with Sean Penn’s mastery of words, it was in the course of the Oscar voting method when he wrote an essay about how unfairly A Star is Born was becoming treated by the Academy. Do you consider Sean attempted to get Julia to vote for A Star is Born? It is an fascinating query, I consider, simply because just final weekend, Julia presented Very best Image at the Oscars. She was the one particular who had to open the envelope and announce Green Book. Julia and Bradley Cooper are close also so it is achievable, in theory. Then once more, Julia Roberts does not have to guarantee votes to anyone. And, as Ira Madison hilariously pointed out on final week’s episode of his Retain It podcast, which created me laugh out loud on the sidewalk this weekend when I was walking my dogs – here’s the direct quote (if you want to listen, get started at the 25 minute 20 second mark):  

“Cuz listen, Julia Roberts was up there and I was like, Julia Roberts loves n—as, alright? She was waiting for Spike Lee to come up, she was waiting for somebody from Black Panther to come up, she’s like, if I can not get up on Denzel tonight, I’ll get up on his son, she was like, we can do Pelican Short two!”. 

The complete bit was seriously, seriously funny and of course was meant to remind us of when Julia jumped on Denzel Washington right after presenting Very best Actor to him for his functionality in Coaching Day: 


LOLOLOLOLOL. I will by no means get adequate of that – it gets improved each time you watch it. “I like my life.” And appear how a lot time she requires up at the starting as she’s hugging him when he gets up on stage. He can not get started his speech simply because she will not get off him! Then, of course, he virtually had to carry her off. 

So, to go back to what Ira was saying, thinking of that memory, and her face at the Oscars final week, picture the moment we would have gotten if it was BlackkKlansman and Spike? As if she would have had any f-cks to give for Sean Penn and Bradley Cooper!
