Angelina Jolie sure knows how to make an impression — literally. On Saturday, the actress attended a performance of Dear Evan Hansen in London’s West End and like many celebs do, she went backstage after the show to meet with the cast. Obviously all the actors wanted to meet her but Alex Thomas-Smith really wanted to meet her — with good reason.
Smith, who is an understudy for the characters Evan Hansen and Jared, took to Instagram to reveal that not only did they get to meet Jolie, they also got to show off the tattoo of her face on their arm. And then Angie did the unthinkable. Scratch that, not unthinkable — undreamable.

Today in WHAT IS MY LIFE, the beautiful Angelina Jolie came to Dear Evan Hansen. I showed her my tattoo of her, done by the wonderful @courtneylloydtattoos and she loved it, SIGNED IT, kissed me on the cheek and said she would be back to see my Evan show. I will never recover from this. Thanks to @nicoleraquel_d @lucy_anderson.1, @howveryhannah & @courtneyjstapes for the pics and for making me speak to her 😭❤️ #DearEvanHansen #AngelinaJolie
Jolie not only loved the tattoo (a portrait of the actress smoking, FYI), but she signed right underneath it. Apologies to everyone who comes close to Thomas-Smith but they are NEVER washing that arm again.
Chrissy Teigen shuts down troll who had things to say about her boobs
Every Sunday night, Chrissy Teigen gets a roundup on the Instagram account Comments By Celebs because her posts and clapbacks are that amazing. And once again, the cookbook author and television personality proved why she’s the queen of social media.
Teigen posted a pic of herself with daughter Luna on Saturday. The pair were sitting on a set of stairs as the three-year-old adjusted her mom’s hair, neckline and perhaps an unseen necklace. “On set with my stylist,” Chrissy captioned the adorable post, and while many agreed that the cute factor was at an all-time high, there was one person (because isn’t there always someone?) who had to comment about Chrissy’s boob. He told her to “cover up” because Luna was “right there” and Teigen’s response was pretty sensational.
Comments By Celebs also pointed out that the very troll who commented has since changed his profile pic to the same shot he had just complained about. People are weird.
Disney is planning an Aladdin spinoff centering on Prince Anders
Mena Massoud, the star of the hit Aladdin, recently revealed to The Daily Beast that he hasn’t had a single audition since the movie was released. And since the film has raked in over a billion dollars in box office sales, we’re pretty shocked.
On the other hand, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Billy Magnussen, who played the role of Prince Anders, is set to get a spinoff movie. It’s still being developed, but if it does get the green light, it’ll likely air on Disney+. The character was never a part of the animated original and added to the live-action remake as another obstacle in Aladdin’s way of gaining the love of Princess Jasmine.
While things are looking for rosy for Magnussen, the same can’t be said for Massoud who told The Daily Beast while people assume he’s been getting offers and making tons of money, that hasn’t been the case. “People have these ideas in their head. It’s like, I’m sitting here being like, OK, Aladdin just hit $1 billion. Can I at least get an audition? Like I’m not expecting you to be like, here’s Batman. But can I just get in the room? Like, can you just give me a chance?,” the actor told the publication.
THR reported Magnussen “had a hand in the project’s inception,” and approached producers with an idea and met with potential writers for the project. No shade to Magnussen — we love him — but we can’t help but feel disheartened, especially when Hollywood doesn’t exactly have the greatest track record when it comes to diversity.
WHEN MENA MASSOUD IS LITERALLY STRUGGLING TO GET ROLES SINCE ALADDIN CAME OUT?? A MOVIE WHERE HE IS THE MAIN STAR??? HIS CHARACTER’S NAME IS DEADASS THE TITLE BUT YALL PICK THE ONLY WHITE GUY FOR A SPINOFF??? THIS MUST BE A JOKE https://t.co/FwTnoL0Loh

Madonna’s daughter was in a simulated orgy, all in the name of art
Madonna’s daughter, Lourdes Leon, took part in a performance at Art Basel in Miami and had zero inhibitions. She was one of several models to make their way down the runway for Spanish designer brand Desigual during the fashion show/performance piece. As they all met at the end, they formed a human pyramid as the last model, Lourdes, danced towards the rest of them before posing alongside them. That’s when things got sensual and the models stripped off their clothing.

“Love different” is a performance created by the artistic direction of @carlota_guerrero to showcase the most iconic pieces of Desigual 2020. A representation in which the catalan artist affects the most basic and universal act of love: the kiss.

OK, they weren’t completely naked; they wore nude underwear and their nipples were covered but as they caressed each other and made out for the sake of art, it’s easy to understand some people’s confusion. Desigual explained in a post that the piece was called “Love Different,” and was meant to show “the most basic and universal act of love: the kiss.

Rapper Juice Wrld died after reportedly suffering a seizure
Up and coming rapper Juice Wrld has died at the age of 21, reported TMZ. Born Jarad Anthony Higgins, the Chicago native had arrived at Chicago Midway Airport from Los Angeles late Saturday night when he reportedly suffered a seizure.
According to TMZ, he was walking through the airport when the incident happened, but he was conscious when paramedics arrived on the scene to take him to a local hospital. It was there that he was pronounced dead.
Juice, who most recently toured with Nicki Minaj, only celebrated his 21st birthday on December 2. The cause of death is unknown but many are grieving the loss.
To lose someone so kind and so close to our hearts is devastating. Our thoughts are with Juice’s family and friends, everyone at his label Grade A, and his millions of fans around the world.

I can’t believe it… you were such a sweet soul. I’ll always remember meeting you and your family on the video set and thinking how close you were. You had so much further to go, you were just getting started. You’ll be missed Juice 💔
