    I love that Jason doesn’t seem one bit jealous or threatened by his brother’s relationship and is just as entertained by it as everyone else.

    • Truthiness says:

      100%. I think Jason is the funnier brother and it would be hilarious to see him go to a Swift concert and go the whole 9 yards with trading bracelets and wearing a special outfit.

    He was in the Amazon with my mom when she was researching spiders right before she died.

    Wow, acting is……hard for Dakota. That nepotism sure kicked in on time for her. That was bad from the monotone delivery of the first line. Ooof

  4. J says:

    I don’t get it. She sounds …good? I don’t understand what I’m apparently missing.

    • Anners says:

      I feel the same way. I don’t find Dakota Johnson a compelling actress, and the line is a bit clunky and weird, but I don’t think it would have stuck out to me as a hilarious meme if I hadn’t gone in listening for it. I still don’t think it’s that funny, but then I accept that I am an old and have reached the “I just don’t get kids these days” stage of life. Sad, but there you go. 🙂

    • Nicki says:

      I think it’s more about the awful writing than the delivery of the line? For me the ultimate Dakota moment will always be that time she took down Ellen. Love that clip from the show.

      • BeanieBean says:

        This is where I’m at–it’s a really stupid line & she delivers it in the same manner as every other line we see in this clip–flat monotone, no affect whatsoever.

      • Twin Falls says:

        I think the article writer summed it up perfectly that it’s the absurdity of the line together with the dead inside delivery that made a collectively exhausted population relate and laugh.

        Dakota’s acting style reminds me of Uma Thurman.

    Ooof, reading that Matthew Perry post was rough 💔

    I still can’t believe he worried that people might not find him funny. He was always freaking hilarious.

    Not a viewer of the Kardashians but followed the Khloe/Tristen storyline here on CB. Question? Did Khloe ever publicly apologize for her words/behaviors directed at Jordan or her reputation? Or did she perform an apology?

  7. Normades says:

    New idea. I’m into Decrapio’s new relationship with Vitoria and honestly think she’s different. After all his “models“ who weren’t really fashionable and this new era where men can dress creative and great I predict we’ll be seeing Leo with better clothes for Oscar season
