Which VSCO Girl Left Their Hydro Flask In This 'Little Women' Scene?

SKSKSKSK.

Remember when the cast and crew of Game of Thrones left a disposable coffee cup in the background of one scene and got absolutely torn to shreds by fans? Well, it happened again – and this time it’s a Hydro Flask and Greta Gerwig’s 2019 coming-of-age period drama film Little Women at the centre of the controversy.

Speaking of films, hear about how ScarJo put her foot in it when speaking about Woody Allen below:

A bunch of eagle-eyed Timothee Chalamet fans have taken to social media to point out not only a water bottle, but a Hydro Flask (!!) in the background of one of the scenes.

There’s a few problems here. Not only is Little Women set in 1868 – which is a good 141 years before Hydro Flask was founded, but who didn’t check this shot before it made it to cinemas!?

And most importantly, which VSCO girl left their Hydro Flask on set? 

Game of Thrones and Little Women aren’t the only films to leave bizarre objects in the backgrounds of scenes. In 1992’s Newsies there are neon ‘EXIT’ signs in the background of one scene, despite the film being set in 1899, and the same goes for 2000’s Oh Brother, Where Art Thou, which was supposed to be set in the 1930s.

In the background of the 1995 blockbuster Braveheart, there’s a modern white car zooming past – despite the film being set in 13th century Scotland. Even in last year’s popular Disney+ series The Mandalorian, fans spotted a boom mic in the top corner of one scene. Yikes.

If there’s anything we’ve learned from the Game of Thrones coffee cup-gate of 2019, it’s that mistakes happen. In an official statement, HBO joked, “The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea.”

Unless you’re a crazy film buff, you’ve got to laugh at these big screen blunders. At the end of the day – we’re all human.

Please Carole Baskin, Tell Us How 'Tiger King' Got It All Wrong

"Carole really had no interest in seeing an animal in the wild."

If you haven’t watched the new Netflix documentary series Tiger King yet, then do yourself a favour and get involved, but also be warned – there are spoilers ahead. Tiger King’s anti-hero Carole Baskin has shared her thoughts on the series, and it’s safe to say, the directors weren’t having a bar of it.

Hear about Tiger King, the Netflix series that has everyone talking below:

After Tiger King hit Netflix, Baskin posted a statement to her website addressing suggestions she had murdered her second husband, Don Lewis. 

Carole Baskin claimed Tiger King directors approached her five years ago and said “they wanted to make the big cat version of Blackfish (the documentary that exposed abuse at SeaWorld) that would expose the misery caused by the rampant breeding of big cat cubs for cub petting exploitations and the awful life the cats lead in roadside zoos and backyards if they survive.”

She also said that Tiger King “had the sole goal of being as salacious and sensational as possible to draw viewers.” 

In a video posted after the statement, Howard Baskin said “the biggest con artist of them all” is Tiger King directors Eric Goode and Rebecca Chaiklin. “I believe they are devoid of integrity, don’t care about the animals and clearly, clearly do not care about the truth. As far as I can tell their goal was to make something as inflammatory and salacious as possible so that Netflix would pay them millions for it.”

In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, Goode and Chaiklin spared zero sympathy for the Baskins. Chaiklin said “with any project that goes on for five years, things evolve and change, and we followed it as any good storyteller does,” however Goode was more straightforward.

“Carole talked about her personal life, her childhood, abuse from her first and second husband, the disappearance of her ex, Don Lewis. She knew that this was not just…it’s not a Blackfish because of the thing she spoke about.”

“She certainly wasn’t coerced. The other thing I would say about all these people is that there was a lack of intellectual curiosity to really go and understand or even see these animals in the wild. Certainly, Carole really had no interest in seeing an animal in the wild…The lack of education, frankly, was really interesting – how they had built their own little utopias and really were only interested in that world and the rules they had created.”

Goode has a point. The most enlightening part of Tiger King was seeing the stark reality of the situation, and how the cruelty to both animals and humans played out in such a raw and uncut way. It mightn’t have painted Carole Baskin in the best light, but it made us ask some very important questions.

Lewis Capaldi's Ex Who Won 'Love Island' Is Now Coming For His Music Career

It's someone he loved.

It’d be bad enough having to watch your ex making up and breaking up with a bunch of babes on a reality TV show, but imagine if they won that show and then came for your music career? It’s a struggle singer Lewis Capaldi has sadly become all too familiar with after the most recent season of Love Island UK.

Paige Turley, who won the latest season of Love Island UK alongside fellow islander Finley Tapp, dated Lewis Capaldi between 2014 and 2016. 

During her time in the Love Island villa, Turley wasn’t shy about mentioning her famous ex and even claimed ‘Someone You Loved’ was written about her. 

Hear about why Lewis Capaldi is so god damn loveable below:

When Capaldi was asked about his ex being on the show, he took the whole thing in his stride. Speaking to The Edge, Capaldi said, “She never told me she was going on it, that would have been a nice heads up, but fair play, good luck to her.”

He did, however, clear up the real meaning behind ‘Someone You Loved’ during his acceptance speech at the Brit Awards. “[The song] is actually about my grandma,” he said. “I hope Love Island doesn’t contact her to be on the show… Thanks to my grandma for… dying? I’m sorry!”

Fast-forward to the finale of Love Island UK, Land it sounds like Turley is quite keen to win some music awards of her own. In an interview with the Daily Star, she said,  “I have a lot of exciting projects in the pipeline and singing absolutely still remains a passion of mine, watch this space. 

“It’s been a total whirlwind since Love Island. I haven’t really had any time to shop as I’ve been so manic with work, but I am loving every minute of it.”

It’s not the first time Paige Turley has tried her hand at music, either. In 2012, she actually made it to the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent.

While Lewis Capaldi insists that his ex has “every right” to talk about him, as he’s made money off songs about her, will he care when they’re rivalling in the charts? Or perhaps it’s all water under the bridge and we can expect a collab from these two in the near future. Watch this space.
