Megan-Fox-and-Machine-Gun-Kelly-British-GQ

Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox are on the new cover of British GQ Style, and it’s a LOT. The piece opens with them giving each other matching tattoos that say “the darkest fairytale,” delves into their first encounter (“I just remember this tall, blond, ghostly creature and I looked up and I was like, ‘You smell like weed.’ He looked down at me and he was like, ‘I am weed.’ Then, I swear to God, he disappeared like a ninja in a smoke bomb”), their first kiss (“She wouldn’t kiss me. We just put our lips right in front of each other and breathed each other’s breath and then she just left”), and touches on how it’s not all fun and games (“This is a very intense relationship. Our souls chose this to absolutely have to face our shadow selves; to face things about ourselves we didn’t want to have to know, that we tried to push away”).

Timothée Chalamet is on the cover of Time and says “One of my heroes — I can’t say who or he’d kick my ass — he put his arm around me the first night we met and gave me some advice: No hard drugs and no superhero movies.” It takes balls to look down on superhero movies when you’re in rehearsals for a musical prequel to Willy Wonka…

-In his Vanity Fair cover story, Dwayne Johnson talked more about his feud with Vin Diesel. He said wished he hadn’t posted about it on social media (“I don’t share things like that. And I take care of that kind of bulls—t away from the public. They don’t need to know that”) but he doesn’t regret it (“It caused a firestorm. Yet interestingly enough [it was] as if every single crew member found their way to me and either quietly thanked me or sent me a note”).

In the interview, she talks about Jane Fonda being a fan of I Will Destroy You (“I imagine if I bumped into her outside of the supermarket, we’d be nerding out on all of the hidden meanings and layers because I can see that she really gets it. She watches it the way that I dreamed the audience would watch it”), and “meeting” Kerry Washington at the SAG Awards (“I imagine, if the show was in real life, she’d be sat over there and I’d be way too shy to go over and say, ‘Hey, I’ve been watching you on my screen for decades.’ I was still too shy to say any of that on Zoom, but she knew my name. I was like ‘Oh my God, hi!’ You can’t do that in real life”)
