2 . Why Emily Blunt made her husband fire another actress.

Actress Emily Blunt had to get her husband John Kransinki to fire another actress. Why? So she could star in his new film, A Quiet Place of course.

Appearing on The Graham Norton Show to promote the film her husband Kransinski directed, Blunt said she had to insist Kransinski fire another actress, a “good friend” of hers, so she could take the role instead.

“I wasn’t sure I wanted to go to the darkness of the pitch that he’d given me for this film. Then I read the script and I was like ‘you need to call her and fire her’,” Blunt told Graham Norton.

3. “Why do I have to be an actor for the rest of my life?” Asher Keddie is pursuing a new career path.

It’s time for a moment of silence for all the Offspring fans out there.

Despite the hit show not being cancelled yet, actress and protagonist of Offspring Asher Keddie continues to act as though the show is finished with a new career path in mind.

I mean, the show is probably done (plus, I don’t think our hearts can take much more), but we can still hope. Can’t we?

The 43-year-old opened up to TV tonight and said she hasn’t “had a conversation with anybody since [we] finished shooting last year”.

Sniffs through tears.

Listen: We’re calling it: Offspring should have quit while it was ahead. The Binge girls discuss.

Keddie, however, has been lining up more work and plans to be producing for film and television instead of being in front of the camera.

“I’ve just moved forward, actually for the first time in my working life, making plans,” she told the outlet. “I’ve never really done that. I’ve been remarkably lucky that opportunities have butt up against each other, and I’ve been able to move through different dramas. Offspring was a really long run but there were other dramas in the middle of that.”

Now, she’s pairing with film and TV production company Matchbox Pictures to start her own behind-the-camera projects.

“I want to be part of telling stories in a different way. Why do I have to be an actor for the rest of my life? Why not challenge myself to do that?”

You will be missed, actress Asher Keddie.

4. A very reliable and not at all made up insider says Tim Robards and Anna Heinrich are tying the knot in Europe.

It’s another day. And you know what that means? Another Bachie-esque story. *shimmies*

Australia can’t really get enough of engaged, inaugural Bachelor couple Tim Robards and Anna Heinrich, who have been together since 2013.

Everyone’s fishing around for wedding deets. C’mon, it might as well be the Aussie royal wedding.

But there might be a slip up in their secrecy surrounding their upcoming wedding.

An insider (haha, insider that is 100 per cent REAL), told The Daily Mail that the soon-to-be wed couple will “tie the knot in a lavish destination wedding over the Summer in Europe”.

Well, why not?

According to the source, they will tie the knot in Italy in June.

Thank you secret insider, that is… very specific. BUT WE WILL TAKETH WHAT WE ARE GIVETH.

Even more… the completely real insider says Tim is planning a Bachelor party in the US. Specifically, Las Vegas.

Maybe they are doing everything abroad to avoid press. Smart move, Tim and Anna.

Play on.

5. Osher met Mack Horton when he was a kid and the photo is ridiculous.

21-year-old Australian freestyle swimmer Mack Horton is killing it at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

But it’s not just gold medals we have Mack Horton to thank for.

We also have to thank Mack Horton for this incredibly ridiculous photo of Mack as a kid with Osher Gunsberg.

 

Can we just take a moment to appreciate Osher’s beach-tousled, blonde-highlighted locks?! He could almost beat Farrah Fawcett in a hair contest.

And let’s not forget the oversized 2000s sunnies.

Thanks, Mack.
