Ryan Reynolds' Edit Job On This Photo Of His Daughter Is The Stuff Of Nightmares

It’s obviously not cool to troll a baby, but this is… odd.

Being the stealthy creatures they are, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds have done a pretty great job of keeping their third child a secret from the world.

Baby number three (no, we don’t have a name) is believed to be about two months old but beyond that, we haven’t really been given many details about the kiddo.

This would explain why the Internet all but exploded when Ryan Reynolds ~kind of~ shared a photo of the little one on Twitter. The Deadpool actor took an opportunity to make a political statement personal; pleading with voters to consider the importance of climate progress in B.C, Canada so his *daughters* can enjoy the “same natural playground” he did.

Along with the confirmation that the most recent addition to the family is a little girl, Reynolds decided to post a picture of himself and Lively posing with the cutie pie.

…Only instead of a sweet little baby’s face, the picture shows a scribble of pink and a creepy AF drawn-on smiley.

Now, I obviously get the intention behind this. Outside of their personal circles, it’s really no-one’s business what Reynolds and Lively’s kids look like. But holy hell, mate. There’s something really unnerving about the tiny illustrated face in this picture.

Twitter obviously picked up on this and has not held back in response. A tsunami of tweets has flowed on in.

Anyway, while I’m sure the actual child is beautiful, Reynold’s needs to work on his artistic skills a little.

In other news: if you’re in need of a last-minute Halloween costume maybe give Reynold’s scribble face a shot? I know for sure that it’ll haunt my dreams from now on.  

Charlize Theron Having A Meltdown While Playing Ouija Board Is My Forever Mood

“I don’t feel good about this.”

Today in unusual things on the internet, absolute angel Charlize Theron and funny guy Nick Kroll have been put through cruel and unnatural torture… in the form of a Ouija board game.

The actors, who were chatting with Cosmopolitan about their upcoming film The Addams Family, were asked to participate in the series ‘Celebs Play Ouija Against Their Will’ and sweet holy hell, Theron was not okay.

In case you weren’t tormented as a youth by friends who made you engage in this kind of sh*t, I’ll give you a quick intro.

The board, which is believed to have originated in Ohio in the 1800s, is detailed with the alphabet, the words ‘yes’ and ‘no’, and numbers zero through nine. It has long been used as a means of communicating with the spirit world.

Users take the planchette (a small pointed piece of wood, usually) place at least one finger on it, and ask questions. The spirits they’re communicating with are believed to guide the planchette to the letters and numbers on the board to give answers.

Wow, I hate this stuff.

Okay, back to the video.

Early on in the mix, Kroll decided to tell the story of when he last engaged in a little bit of spooky Ouija.

“I played Ouija board in an abandoned hotel with these three kids once,” he said.

It’s at this point the panic begins to flare up in Theron.

“It’s so stupid, why would you do that?” she asked.

“Every movie tells you not to do that.”

“Because none of us believed in spirits. They’re all dead now,” Kroll replied.

While it’s all very cute and funny, it’s also abundantly clear that Theron is genuinely freaked out by the prospect of summoning a spirit through a creepy board. And, as anyone who’s ever seen The Exorcist knows, she should be.

As the Monster actor becomes increasingly fidgety in her seat, she tells Kroll, “I am a little unsettled by this. I get all my information from films, and every film always told me don’t f*ck with this.”  

“I don’t feel good about this. I have a crystal in my pocket.”

As the pair begins the process, she mentions that her publicist should expect an earful, then literally screams, “I don’t want to do this. Why am I doing this?!”

If you were ever a teenager who was forced to watch scary movies, to mess with Ouija boards or to try the whole ‘light as a feather, stiff as a board’ bit, you will one hundred per cent relate to this video.

Nope. Nope. Nope.

Theron’s face fills with terror as she continually warns Kroll not to freak her out. I’ve never felt so close to an incredibly beautiful, ridiculously rich, famous person before.

If this video proves anything, it’s that spooky games absolutely do not become less freaky with age, and no one should be pressured to engage with them, no matter how “cool” your friend Melissa thinks it’s going to be.

Today In Things We Can't Relate To, Jared Leto Thinks Someone Stole His Head

“If anyone out there finds it, bring it in to your nearest Gucci store”

Today on the internet, a GQ interview with Jared Leto has made headlines because of some particularly attention-grabbing comments made by the Suicide Squad actor.

The publication spoke with Leto about his relationship with Gucci, and his ability to make over-the-top outfit choices appear “tactile”.

“Well, I was born in Louisiana, so that probably balances out any chance of getting too regal, but I have a lot of help from the Gucci team,” he told GQ.

“They’re an incredible group of people. So talented, so gifted. I feel really fortunate to work with Alessandro and this motley crew of artists and craftspeople that he’s put together.”

Naturally, the conversation turned to his bold outfit for the 2019 Met Gala soon after. In case you’ve since forgotten, the 47-year-old wore an embellished red number and carried a replica of his own head at the event.

Leto mentioned that since May, the (frankly, quite terrifying) accessory he brought along with him has gone missing.

When the magazine asked him what he did with his head (what a sentence) he replied:

“Honestly, I have no idea. I think someone may have stolen it. If anyone out there finds it, bring it into your nearest Gucci store in exchange for a pair of dirty sneakers.”

While this is obviously a joke and we’re imagining there are few people who would want to steal a bust of Jared Leto, The Cut has pointed out that it’s not exactly a cheap trinket.

According to the outlet, Gucci dropped somewhere around €25,000 (AUD 40,600) on the fake Leto head. The piece was created by Italian special effects team Makinarium, and might just be one of the strangest ways to spend forty grand, ever.

Here’s hoping Leto gets his head back in his hands soon.
