The Supernatural Brothers Are Back to Fighting — This Time, Each Other

-Why are CW actors being so messy this week? Jared Padalecki says he’s ‘gutted’ he found out about Jensen Acklesplanned Supernatural prequel through Twitter last night. Yikes. I mean, I always assume costars who pretend to be BFFs aren’t really IRL, but Ackles could have texted him. And the CW, where Padalecki is headlining Walker, should also have also given him a heads up. Of course, instead of reacting in front of the whole world, Padalecki could have texted instead. This whole situation is not cool.

Padalecki posted an update this afternoon, tweeting Jensen Ackles and I had a great talk, as we do often, and things are good. The show is early in the process with miles to go. We’ve travelled a lot of roads together, and sometimes those damn roads have bumps. Bumps don’t stop us. Once brothers, always brothers.”

Keira Knightley opened up about her experiences with misogyny and harassment in the latest Harper’s Bazaar UK — and during the interview she and the writer were followed by a lone male stranger. “I think it’s quite interesting talking about this while being chased around. I love that politician who said there ought to be a curfew for men and men were outraged, and you think – but there’s a curfew for women and there always has been.” On a lighter note, she talked about trying to lighten the mood during the early days of quarantine: “We have a trampoline in our garden, and we decided we were only allowed to wear dresses on it. I put on red lipstick every day, and every bit of Chanel that I have in my cupboard, and my daughter Edie had Chanel ribbons plaited into her hair and fairy wings.”
