Jodie Turner Smith & Joshua Jackson looked cute & fine as they went to dinner

Photo agency Backgrid labeled these photos as “Jodie Turner Smith and husband Joshua Jackson squash breakup rumors!” Were there actually breakup rumors or was it just some rando on Twitter trying to make something happen? I feel like if Joshua and Jodie ever do have problems, we’ll probably know about it pretty quickly, because Jodie will tell us.

Anyway, Jodie and Joshua went out to dinner at Nobu last night and they look like they’re not going to the same place at all. It’s not that Joshua looks schlubby or anything, he just looks… I don’t know, weird?? The pants are awful but at least his hair and sneakers are cute. Meanwhile, Jodie looks like she’s coming from a fashion magazine photoshoot. What I love most about these photos is that Joshua opens the car door for his lady AND he holds her purse. I didn’t realize Jodie’s hair is so short these days – that’s close to a full buzzcut, and she’s dyed the stubble fuchsia.

I also saw this, which is perhaps the root of the “breakup rumors” – Page Six and Twitter randos pointed out that Joshua and Jodie weirdly do not follow each other on Instagram. Jodie is much more “online” than Joshua, who only updates his IG every few months. But it’s weird – you’d think they would follow each other.

Anyway, this was just an update! Joshua and Jodie are fine! They had a date night and left their daughter Janie with the babysitter, I guess.

    I think the rumour stemmed from anon posts on deuxmoi. After they were posted they then started following each other on instagram.

    • Roxy says:

      Yeah it was a deuxmoi post. The post also mentioned that her bff (don’t know who that is) also unfollowed him but who knows if it’s just a rumour or what

  2. Noki says:

    Some couples just dont follow each other (Bey and Jay Z ) but strange world we live in if thats now an indicator of peoples relationships.

    • Lens says:

      Yeah I don’t get it but it seems to be the way the youths do it. If you break up you scrub all your pictures of the ex. If you get together you both follow each other right away. Then if you unfollow each other ever everybody knows you broke up. They should have known this!

      • Levans says:

        My husband and I don’t follow each other on certain social platforms. It gives us more to talk about instead of saying I already saw your post about that! Lol

  3. Amy Bee says:

    Well if you want the world to know that you’re still together you go to Nobu, right?

    • Christine says:

      LMAO! But really, I hope these two aren’t on the rocks, I love them together so much.

      I’ve lived in LA for 13 years, and never been to Nobu, so I side-eye anyone who is famous who shows up.

    • Noo says:

      And advertise your J.Crew sponsorship?! Not sure who the designers are but getting total J.Crew vibes between the two of them…

  4. Freddy says:

    I see soooo many straight couples on dates where they look like they’re going to different things: the guy is always in a tee or hoody, jeans and sneakers, while the woman is decked out and looking glam…it’s really weird

    • Khate's Mourning Wig says:

      Speaking for me and my BF…ugh! Yes, it’s weird! But he is clean and comfortable, and I don’t have the energy to police a grown man’s wardrobe. I’m also not going to dress down to match him.

    • vertes says:

      Dirty sneakers, at that.

  5. Kirsten says:

    My husband follows my personal IG but not my business IG. I would imagine their public IGs include personal content but as intended for their business audiences? Like it doesn’t seem that weird to me that they’re not interested in marketing themselves for each other, lol.

  6. Nicole says:

    Joshua is closer to my age than Jodie’s. I’m gonna guess that he sees it as a necessary evil but does not dictate the terms of his life. I suspect it’s just generational. They are my favorite couple. They can never break up!

  7. girl_ninja says:

    When I realized it was just different sites saying “OMG. Jodie and Josh don’t follow each other on social!!!!” I side eyed the alert. It’s nice to see them together. I hope they are happy and enjoying their lives. Deuxmoi is a menace.

    • owled says:

      Nah it was true, checked as soon as I saw the blind, plus their handles are towards the top of each other’s following list – ie recently refollowed. Plus her bestie (frankie gomez?) unfollowed him too then refollowed

  8. CheChe says:

    I like her style and verve. She takes risks and enjoys life. She and her husband have protected their child from the media and that speaks volumes on how they want to navigate Hollywood. Jodie and Joshua are a classy couple.

  9. May says:

    They are obviously aware of the rumors and went out to squash them. Hopefully, they really are fine and not just publicly pretending to be.

    • Normades says:

      Same thought. The rumors definitely bothered them if they went to Nobu. They 100% wanted to be seen.

      • owled says:

        Yup, PR & AD campaigns have real money behind them- a huge incentive to look happy & together even if stuff isn’t great at home. I wonder how long their Motorola contract is for…

      • May says:

        I didn’t realize they had a Motorola contract. Hmmm. Ad money is nice but not if you have to pretend. I’ve never thought they would last, given the apparent accidental pregnancy and then marriage. Plus they just seemed to be at different stages in their lives and careers.

      • owled says:

        True but theirs is a fickle business, so I guess you have to take the money where you can as you never know when work will dry up. Especially as their first post was Met Gala so if something happened between then and now they’d have to keep up appearances so as not to break the contract & have to pay some $ back. Plus, not for one second do I believe they actually use Razrs haha.

  10. Pix says:

    My husband and I don’t follow each other on any social media platforms. I never look to see what he’s up to or posting either. We both work from home and having distance online works.

  11. SarahFransisco says:

    I don’t see anything strange about not following one’s husband or girlfriend on social media. I don’t follow my husband on any of his social media. All of my accounts are private. We both work from home and see each other all the time, doing things together all the time. And even if we weren’t, there’s something to be said for having a private space. Sharing everything together all the time is exhausting.

  12. Bauhaus Chic says:

    The thing is that they used to follow each other on instagram and comment on each other’s posts… Then they stopped…and the Deuxmoi post happened and mentioned their joint promotional campaign (for Motorola I think?)…then they started to follow each other again so it does seems a bit strange…

  13. Aurora says:

    Its certainly odd they unfollowed, then re-followed each other in the same media. They’re posing the heck out of these pics, and acting as if each one is at a different place -look @ their faces- no matter the hand/ door/ bag holding. For me, some kind of meltdown did happen and it wouldn’t surprise Joshua is jealous or something of the sort. Jodie’s a real knockout and her career & presence are hot hot hot right now. She must be accosted both personally and professionally. He’s the conceptual underdog in this relationship, no matter if they’re crazy about each other.

  14. ally says:

    I always assume the SUPER active social media celebs have finstas and they probably follow one another there. Or she posts on his IG for him haha. He seems to not GAF.

  15. ChillinginDC says:

    They have never followed each other but they thirst trap about each other on Twitter all the time. Or did before Jodie got ran off because she dared to say the Slap was a weird moment. I was ashamed of Black Twitter that day. People were so nasty to her and telling her how pathetic she was for proposing.

    • Owled says:

      They definitely did follow each other, but not sure when they unfollowed. Can’t have been for long as I don’t follow many but noticed that the “Followed by….” names changed & didn’t have each other listed anymore).
      Agree that she didn’t deserve the backlash for acknowledging a hugely controversial moment in her work field though.

  16. NotSoSocialB says:

    She looks so put together and lovely (though I could NEVER wear a shirt like that😂), and he looks so…well, just plain old dumpy. From his hair to his tee, his HORRIBLY CUT pants and those rachet sneakers. Good lord. Put some effort into it, man.

  17. SIde Eye says:

    She looks so gorgeous in this pink suit! I think they are adorable together. Yes they do look like they’re going to different events. I’m seeing a lot of that different events trend lately with a few exceptions, like Ben Affleck suffocating in that suit in Paris. At least he tried.
