Dear Sophie Turner, Lets Drink Tequila Then You Can Slap Me In The Face

Not sure how but she makes drinking while slapping people look fun.

Now I’m not a party person by any means but if an opportunity were to come up where Sophie Turner and I would be having tequila shots while she slaps me across the face repeatedly, well that’s an experience even someone as boring as me would say yes to in a heartbeat.

The Game of Thrones actress appeared on Conan O’Brien’s talk show to promote X-Men: Dark Phoenix but things quickly went off-topic and the pair started talking about a little game she liked to play with her castmates called “tequila slaps.” The game is exactly what it sounds like: one person takes a shot of tequila and the other slaps them.

Conan being Conan, he decided to play a round of tequila slaps with him as the slapee and Sophie as the slapper, and things went just as you expected.

The sound of that slap on Conan’s face was amazing and I’m pretty sure his soul was removed from his body in that instant. Now for those worried about Sophie getting slapped across the face by her male costars, no need to stress because she gave them permission to do it, so much so that she got bruises.

But judging by the whopper she left on Conan (which she admits was a soft one), I have a feeling that she left more bruises than she received. After all, you don’t become Queen of the North without rocking a killer slap.

Anyway, we here at GOAT are all in for a round of tequila slaps so please swing on by if you and Joe are in the neighbourhood and we’ll get a game started. The handprint on my face bestowed upon me by the Queen of the North and inevitable hangover I’ll get will be something I’ll wear with pride.


Robert Pattinson Says He Smells Like A Crayon And I Need To Know Which Colour

Another wild yarn from R-Patz.

Robert Pattinson has gained quite a reputation for spinning wild yarns during interviews, but his most recent comments on his body odour have me truly shaken.

In a recent interview with Allure the star of the upcoming The Batman film said, “Lots of people tell me I smell like a crayon.”

The interviewer – understandably bewildered by this statement – then asked, “Like you’re made of wax?”

To which R-Patz responded, “Yes! Like I’m embalmed.”

I have so many questions. What colour crayon does Pattinson smell like? What brand? Is he using lots of crayons? And most importantly, who are these multiple people who are telling him he smells like crayon!? Is that an insult, or a compliment?

It’s not the first time Robert Pattinson’s scent has come up in conversation. Back in 2009, E! News reported that an unidentified source who worked “very closely” with the actor on New Moon said “he stinks.”

“I mean, it’s awful,” the source said. “He never showers, and it drives people on the set crazy.”

“He completely reeks,” an unidentified crew member added. Yikes.

It’s been over a decade since then, so we can only hope Robert Pattinson has swapped his lack of showering for an obsession with crayons. 

Speaking of celebrity scents, celebrity tattoo artist Lauren Winzer dishes on what Post Malone smells like on It’s Been A Big Day For…below:

During his interview with Allure, Pattinson was also asked about being recently named the “most handsome man” in the world according to science.

“It’s weird,” he said. “I never was really up for the good-looking-guy roles, because I’ve always been quite awkward when meeting people.”

“My Harry Potter role was a good-looking guy, and it was a shock that it was quite easy to get. And then in Twilight, [Edward is] beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. When I turned up for the auditions, I had done a job where I’d dyed my hair black, because I had an inch and a half of roots, and I had waxed my body. And then I had a few months where I’d been drinking beer all day, so I had this hairless, chubby body. I looked like a baby with a wig on.”

Hairless, chubby, waxed or smelling like a crayon – we’ll take Robert Pattinson any which way.
