Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas? Emma Stone and Justin Theroux? We need a moment to unpack this.
Hollywood has been busy churning out some rather perplexing couples this spring. Elon Musk and Grimes. Ariana Grande and SNL‘s Pete Davidson. Nicki Minaj and Emi-freaking-nem (but not really, apparently). If any of these couples didn’t elicit a head-scratching “Huh?” reaction from you, maybe this bit of news out of left field will: According to the always-reliable rumor mill, Emma Stone and Justin Theroux are now pretty much a hot new couple, as are Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas
Hmmm, huh. Well, we didn’t see that coming. There really is something about the gentle warmth of spring that makes random love like this possible.
If you are, like us, somewhat bewildered and surprised at these kind of, maybe, could-be pairings, you’re not alone. Let’s explore these potentially new Hollywood couples and attempt to make sense of everything the rumor mill has to offer.
Ah, this is a fun one. On Wednesday, Us Weekly reported that the 35-year-old Quantico star (and recent royal wedding attendee) has gotten cozy with the 25-year-old former Jonas Brother.
“They are dating and it’s brand new. It’s a good match and they are both interested in each other,” a source told Us. Well, that definitely means it’s romance.
The newly-minted couple recently attended the Beauty and the Beast Live concert at the Hollywood Bowl on Friday, and hit up the Dodgers game on Saturday night (to the excitement of this fan). At some point, they even found the time to chill out on a yacht with a newly single Chord Overstreet and Wilmer Valderrama. Dang, Hollywood is SO random.
Spider-Man’s ex-girlfriend and the newly single Leftovers star with the back tattoo that gives Ben Affleck’s a run for his money have been spending tons of time together over the last few months. They’re now co-stars on Netflix’s upcoming black comedy series, Maniac. As you may recall, Theroux split from his wife Jennifer Anniston earlier this year and, since then, has been spotted with Selena Gomez,Laura Harrier, and “mystery women” galore. Dating rumors between Stone, 29, and Theroux, 46, began after they left Rihanna’s Met Gala after-party together. Since then, they seem to be conveniently popping up all over together, more recently at the Louis Vuitton 2019 Cruise fashion show in Saint-Paul-de-Vence, France.
On Wednesday, Popsugar published a treasure trove of “romantic” images that added “fire to dating rumors.” But, if you ask me, there is nothing romantic about these photos. The two look like they have the chemistry of a snail and a raccoon. So are they dating? Frankly, I’m just not buying this rumor, nor am I all that into it. If you ask Justin, he’s maybe not either — as illustrated by this Instagram Story, which seems to put this rumor to bed.
