The Internet has a new star.
Ryan McKenna, 13, went viral during the 2018 Super Bowl after the teen snapped a selfie with Justin Timberlake during the singer’s halftime show. An image of McKenna looking distracted on his phone instantly became an Internet meme and started trending on Twitter.
McKenna described the “crazy” viral moment on Monday’s episode of Good Morning America. According to the young breakout star, McKenna “didn’t really know” the Timberlake selfie was going to happen.
“There was a Super Bowl halftime lady and she, like, said that we were in a special section,” he explained. “He just came up, and I just, like, jumped right in there with him. And he stopped right in our row so it was perfect.”
Gisele Bündchen was a good sport about Tom Brady‘s Super Bowl loss.
“Congratulations Eagles for winning the Super Bowl,” the Brazilian supermodel wrote on Instagram Monday, along with a picture of herself consoling Brady. “What a game that was!”
Bündchen also made sure to congratulate the quarterback’s team, the New England Patriots, “for giving your best” Sunday night in Minneapolis. “And to my love, we are incredibly proud of you because we are able to see ever day all the commitment, sacrifice and hard work that you have devoted to become the best in what you do,” she reminded her husband. “We love you!”
(As many people on social media noted, the supermodel’s reaction was more reserved than it once was. Memorably, after the Patriots lost to the New York Giants in the 2012 Super Bowl, she screamed, “My husband cannot f–king throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time!”)
After the house fire was revealed as the cause of Jack’s death, many assumed Jack would perish helping everyone out. Moore said, “I think people are so expecting his death and the circumstances around it to be so cinematic when in reality it’s so ordinary. Jack and Rebecca have this very ordinary conversation about blaming one another for forgetting batteries for the smoke detector and the last thing her husband says to her alive is, ‘You’re standing in front of the TV’…Like, there’s no impassioned speech about how much they mean to one another, it’s so ordinary and that makes it 100 times sadder that that’s their last exchange.”
If you thought watching the Pearson family’s home envelope in flames was hard to watch, imagine filming that episode of This Is Us.
The cast and crew took to Twitter to reveal some behind the scenes details about the emotional episode that aired after the Super Bowl. In “Super Bowl Sunday,” viewers finally learned what happened to Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) the night of the house fire. He didn’t go up in smoke with the house, but suffered a heart attack later at the hospital. His “widow maker” was caused by the amount of smoke he inhaled while securing his family and their precious belongings.
Ouch! That must have hurt.
Kris Jenner fell into Chrissy Teigen‘s table during the supermodel’s Sunday night Super Bowl party—and she totally broke it.
“If anyone’s in the market for a slightly used table, the Kris Jenner actually just fell into it….It’s customized,” Teigen said in a Snapchat video.
Jenner, who can be seen holding a bag of ice in the video, was able to laugh off the fall.
“It’s very, extremely valuable now,” she teased. “If anyone wants to make a bid on this, we’re willing to let it go.”
Inspecting the location of the casualty, Teigen ran her finger across the splintered edge of the table and said, “It’s so sharp. I can’t believe it.”
Kate Middleton launched Children’s Mental Health Week in the U.K. with a special PSA.
The theme of the new campaign, which runs through Feb. 11 and was created by Place2Be, is “Being Ourselves.” It encourages children and young adults to feel comfortable with who they are and to celebrate what makes them unique. The Duchess of Cambridge, who has been a patron of Place2Be since 2013, filmed the video during last month’s visit to Reach Academy Feltham, where Her Royal Highness spoke to parents, students and school principal Ed Vainker.
“Childhood is an incredibly important moment in our lives. It is the time when we explore our personalities, discover the potential that lies within us and learn how to be ourselves. Our experience of the world at this early stage helps to shape who we become as adults, how we begin to feel comfortable in our own skin,” Middleton says in the PSA. “Some children will be facing tougher challenges than others, but I firmly believe that while we cannot change their circumstances, we can ensure that every child is given the best possible support to ensure they fulfill their true potential. This is best achieved when we, the adults in their lives, work together to give children the emotional strength they need to face their futures and thrive. Whether we are school leaders, teachers, support staff or parents, we each have a role to play. When we are open and honest with each other about the challenges we face, we can work together to ensure the children in our care have the chance to become the best version of themselves.”
Who knew Jennifer Lawrence was such a big Philadelphia Eagles fan?
The 27-year-old actress showed her love for the team by hijacking a plane’s speaker and leading the passengers in an Eagles chant ahead of the 2018 Super Bowl.
“Everybody this is not the pilot speaking. This is Jennifer Lawrence,” The Hunger Games star said into the speaker on Sunday. “It’s Feb. 4. It’s Super Bowl Sunday. We all know what that means. Can I please just get a ‘fly Eagles fly?'”
Clearly, Lawrence wasn’t the only Eagles fan on the aircraft. Several passengers joined the actress in chanting “fly, eagles fly.” Although, some passengers looked less than enthused about the cheering—maybe they were New England Patriots fans.
What does Benson say to that? Click play on the video above. Needless to say, Benson isn’t too happy with this development and her icy eye daggers say it all.
Hold up, why is Barba on the wrong side of the law? You’ll have to watch on Wednesday, Feb. 7 to find out, but we can tell you an infant goes missing and the squad finds themselves taking sides in a family’s right-to-die case, and Barba’s (Raúl Esparza) interference in the case puts the entire district attorney’s office in jeopardy.
Jessica Chastain will not appear in The Death and Life of John F. Donovan after all.
French Canadian filmmaker Xavier Dolan made the announcement via Instagram Sunday. The drama—his English-language debut—boasts an ensemble cast that includes Kathy Bates, Kit Harington, Jared Keeso, Ben Schnetzer, Natalie Portman, Susan Sarandona and Bella Thorne.
When the project was announced in December 2014—with both Chastain and Harington attached to star—Dolan released an official synopsis. “A decade ago, the publisher of a gossip magazine, Moira, exposed the correspondences of an American TV star, John F. Donovan, with an 11-year-old British boy, Rupert Turner. A storm kills Donovan’s life and career and culminates in his death. Ten years later, Turner reminiscences the written correspondence, as well as the impact those letters had on both their lives.” Les Films Séville is distributing the film.
In a lengthy note, Dolan defended his decision to remove Chastain’s scenes.
Not content with owning airwaves on Fox and FX, Ryan Murphy is expanding his reach to Netflix once again. A source told E! News Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan have sold The Politician, a musical political comedy starring Ben Platt, to Netflix with a two-season order. Murphy currently has Ratched, the One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Next prequel starring Sarah Paulson, also in the works with the streaming giant.
The Politician, according to reports, centers on the Dear Evan Hansen star as Payton, a wealthy man with political ambitions. Each season will see the character in a new race with plenty of musical numbers. Sound appealing? Wait, there’s more: Barbra Streisand and Gwyneth Paltrow are also in talks to star.
“I’ve been anxiously waiting to share this news with the world. Life, and @MrRPMurphy, are but a dream. We’re gonna knock your socks off. See you on @netflix,” Platt tweeted.
“For me, yes, I would,” Kinnaman said. “If you gave me the opportunity to do that, I think it would be very hard to say no. But do I think that would be good for society as a whole? No, I don’t think so. I think the beauty of life is connected to our mortality and if we give up that mortality then we also end up losing our humanity.”
Dichen Lachman said if it’s only a few people doing it then she’s not on board. However, Renée Elise Goldsberry has a more complicated take on the matter, one similar to Kinnaman’s thoughts on resleeving.
On Monday, The Bachelor’s Arie Luyendyk Jr. appeared on Live With Kelly and Ryan on their first show in the Atlantis, Paradise Island in The Bahamas and was asked about Bekah being on the missing persons list.
“Now there was news over the weekend that Bekah was on a missing persons list and was found because she was on The Bachelor,” Ryan Seacrest said to Arie on the show.
“I think the PSA for that is call your parents,” Arie replied.
Kelly then shared that she has a “theory” about Bekah’s disappearance.
“Bekah is the girl you choose, wanna know why I have this theory? Because she went into lockdown,” Kelly said.
Larry Nassar was sentenced to another 40 to 125 years in prison on Monday for seven counts of felony criminal sexual conduct in the first degree.
Judge Janice Cunningham of Eaton County’s 56th Circuit Court also awarded restitution to the survivors for an amount that has yet to be determined.
This is Nassar’s third and final sentencing. The ruling comes almost two weeks after the former USA Gymnastics doctor was sentenced to 40 to 125 years in prison by Judge Rosemarie Aquilina in the Ingham County Circuit Court, and about a month after Nassar was sentenced to 60 years in prison for child pornography charges in federal court.
Before Jude Cunningham announced the sentence, Nassar read a statement to the court.
“The words expressed by everyone that has spoken, including the parents, has impacted me to my innermost core.” Nassar said. “With that being said, I understand and acknowledge that it pales in comparison to the pain, trauma and emotions that you all are feeling. It’s impossible to convey the depth and breadth of how sorry I am to each and every one involved. The visions of your testimonies will forever be present in my thoughts.”
Just like that, the 2018 Super Bowl has come and gone.
Fortunately for viewers or anyone with access to Twitter (and unfortunately for Tom Brady), the game was full of headline-making moments, memes and stuff that will live on the internet forever.
For starters, the game itself was quite a doozy. The back and forth touchdowns left fans of both the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles on the edge of their seats, knowing that any outcome was possible.
Of course, the outcome was to the benefit of those Eagles’ fans as their team came out on top with a close score of 41 to 33.
The 2018 Super Bowl was full of memorable moments. The Philadelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots in a 41-to-33-point game, giving the team its first Super Bowl title.
Still, there was plenty of excitement both off and on the field. There was Pink’s National Anthem performance, Justin Timberlake‘s halftime show and (of course) plenty of commercials.
Missed any part of the big game? Don’t worry! We have you covered. Check out our list of the most-talked about moments from the 2018 Super Bowl.
Pink’s National Anthem Performance: Before the Eagles and the Patriots faced off, Pink took the field at U.S. Bank Stadium to sing the National Anthem. The “Beautiful Trauma” singer didn’t let the cold in Minneapolis, Minn. stop her from belting out the lyrics. However, the artist received bit of backlash after viewers thought she spit out gum during the patriotic performance. Pink clapped back at her haters and tweeted that she spit out a throat lozenge—the singer had been battling the flu before the big game. Still, Pink didn’t let any trolls bring her down. She tweeted a sweet photo of her and her daughter Willow and thanked her loyal fans for their support.
