Did Johnny Depp Almost Die With THE RUM DIARY Director Bruce Robinson?

To think that we could have lost Johnny Depp is a very scary thought.  Thankfully, what we ended up getting was just a very entertaining anecdote instead.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Depp and THE RUM DIARY director Bruce Robinson were flying to Los Angeles on a private jet, when the engines completely cut out.  Depp explains in an interview with Live Magazine:

“The plane just shut down. The sound of the engines stopped. There was silence…Bruce and I were looking at each other and I think I said, ‘Is this it?’ It was like this weird extended moment when you’re just floating for a second and you could feel this unpleasant descent.”

“Nobody said a word except for Bruce and I, sitting next to each other saying, ‘Oh s–t! This is death; I guess this is how it goes down,’…Then we burst into hysterical laughter at the idea that this was how we were going to die.”

Good to know there’s always laughter in the face of death…

Luckily for Depp (and for us), everything turned out okay.  Depp continues:

“Suddenly the engines started back up again and we were climbing back up…I guess you say that was a big bonding experience for Bruce and me. For a moment there, we were going down together.”

Well that’s definitely a story to tell the kids and the fans…

THE RUM DIARY is out in theaters now.  Go see it.  The director and lead actor almost died because of it.

Ben Platt Performs A Choral Beyoncé Cover And Of Course It’s Amazing

Published

on

Like Queen B said if you got it, flaunt it.

He made you cry in Dear Evan Hansen. He made you laugh in Pitch Perfect. And lately he has just been impressing the hell out of us with his viral videos. Ben Platt has got some golden pipes and always delivers big feels when he sings. Just a few days ago, Ben and the cast of Dear Evan Hansen went viral for their at home performance of “You Will Be Found,” which I may or may not still be misty eyed from. Well, Ben has gone viral again but this time it won’t provoke tears…unless they are tears of happiness because you never thought a Beyoncé song could get any better yet here we are. Ben and his pal tik-took to TikTok to share a choral version of Beyoncé’s hit song “Check On It.” The duo absolutely nails the cover and my only complaint is that the performance isn’t long enough. How can we convince Ben to do a choral reprisal of Beyoncé’s entire Coachella performance?!

Check out the impressive video below!

Published

If the Barefoot Contessa says any hour is cocktail hour then who are we to argue?!

Ina Garten, The Barefoot Contessa herself, took to Instagram to “keep tradition alive” during these stressful, isolated times. What tradition is she most concerned with? One near and dear to all of us of course, cocktail hour! In the two-minute video, Ina gives a tutorial on how to whip up a batch of her favorite cosmopolitans. We all watch the contessa for her signature brand of calm speaking tones and party planning panache and while this video delivers on what we’d expect, Ina throws in a couple funny jokes that you would never see coming. She begins the tutorial by instructing viewers to grab a big pitcher because “you never know who is going to stop by – wait – nobody is going to stop by.” She goes on later to remind viewers that “during a crisis, you know, cocktail hour can be almost any hour.”  Ina wraps up the demonstration by advising viewers to choose the right martini glass when making this drink before pulling out a giant one for herself! Look at Ina getting all loosey-grey-goosey with us!

Enjoy any-hour happy-hour and check out the funny video below!
