Hello darlings, I am back once again following a heavy personal spiral brought upon by the Oscar win of one Cate Blanchett, who as I am sure you are well aware previously lost Best Actress to our dearest Gwyneth and whom only won this year because Ms. Paltrow's tour de force performance in the direct-to-DVD Thanks for Sharing was criminally underrated by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Nonetheless, the darkness has subsided and I am here to present the 5 most amazing items currently for sale on goop.com. So get your white fingers and your black Amex's ready!
Have the current 90s trends got you nostalgic for the fashion of yesteryear? Of course it has! But the early 90s are so overdone at this point. Like, we get it, Jordan Catalano won an Oscar, calm down Forever 21, you don't need to shit plaid, okay? Personally, I prefer the subtly of the late 90s - butterfly clips, chokers, spaghetti strap tank tops and of course - fit and flares. In the grand tradition of LEI, Mudd and the Delia's catalog, these MiH Sugarblue Marrakesh will have you feeling like a teenager all over again, minus the cystic acne and habitual masturbation.
Speaking of your disgusting acne-ridden mug, why not try out this exclusive Restorsea goop travel kit? Sure, you won't be able to afford to go on an actual vacation after dropping $300 on a travel kit you could have easily put together yourself for $7.49 (+ taxes) but as I always say, why explore the world if you can't have practically pore-free skin whilst shitting your brains out from Montezuma's Revenge? #YOLO
With all of the rumors surrounding Gwynnie's relationship with billionaire Jeff Soffer, you may have once or twice wondered just how much it costs to get inside Gwyneth's box? Well, we now know the answer - $1,200. It cost $1,200 to do whatever you want with Gwyneth's box. Goop suggests keeping her box on a dressing table, or the coffee table, but personally I suggest keeping it in a more discrete place, after all, you never know what magazine is conspiring against your box at any given moment and it would be shame if you had to ruin their post-Oscar party because they just couldn't respect your box's privacy. Interestingly, while one would have expected her box to be a more of an alabaster color, goopy has instead made the inspired choice to make her box green, the color of money, envy and pus.
In the '90s, HBO truly revolutionized the way women wore shoes with their seminal series Sex & The City, a highly-rated, critically-lauded show about a group of sexually charged fashionistas. Now in the '10s, HBO are doing it once again with their series nobody has even heard of, Getting On, a show about a group of schlubby, insecure nurses. So trade in those Jimmy Choos and a night on the town with your gays for a nice pair of orthepedics for the night shift at the geriatric ward. These slip-on
KedsDiemme magenta and beige garda cost just $495 so don't worry about getting dirt on the white soles or beige leather because nobody is going to be admiring these Paymore for Payless clunkers anyway!
There is truly nothing I hate more in this world than children. So getting them to shut the fuck up is pretty important to me, and when a toy offers the added bonus that they might also kill each other, well I say it is worth the investment. Luckily, these pointy wooden stick swords cost just $25! So go ahead and stock up; buy a bunch for all of the neighborhood kids. Maybe when their lifeless bodies are strewn about the cul-de-sac you can finally watch House of Cards without their incessant prattling.
Literally do not tell me who to root for on a TV series. I don't care if you are a superfan just doing your thing or a showrunner whose JOB it is to make me feel certain ways; when it comes to the character I will become most invested in, that is MY decision and my decision only. Personally I always like the funny, strong-willed female character and that's just how it's always been. Rayanne on My So-Called Life; Pam on True Blood; Faith on Buffy; Faye on The Secret Circle; Katherine on The Vampire Diaries; Rebekah on The Originals. (Please note that I am not trying to start a debate about the merits of these characters, I am just BARING MY SOUL to you.) But everybody is different! Maybe you tend to root for the sarcastic, witty males or, I don't know, muscular transgender shark people. But I think we ALL have a specific type we're most likely to become invested in, and from the writers' standpoint there's really no way to tell which member of an ensemble will click with individual viewers except maybe ALL OF THEM in some way to somebody. That's why the best TV shows provide a spectrum of heroes. Because options! But seriously, don't tell me who to root for, that is just too personal.
So, uh, I kind of don't know if this is worth mentioning or not, but here goes: I've been aware that this was coming for a while now. I'm by no means an "insider," but living in Los Angeles and surrounding myself with people who work in and around and about the entertainment industry means you hear things about productions all the time. (Oh, the Teen Wolf conversations I've been having lately!) So when that sucker-punch of a BuzzFeed article went live following the East Coast broadcast of this week's episode, my only reaction was "Oh, so this is the episode where that happens." Make no mistake, it was not a sudden or surprising decision for anybody behind the scenes; from what I know, Claire Holt simply did not want to live in Atlanta anymore. If you recall when The Originals was first announced, she was the last series regular to sign on; when she did eventually agree to be a part of the series it was never for a full season. She wasn't the only one who made that deal, though; Daniel Gillies can't film full seasons due to his other, more Canadian commitments, which explains why Elijah chilled in a casket for so many episodes earlier this season. I only bring up this inside-baseball stuff to make sure we honor the distinction between what are some very normal industry logistics and the creative decisions of The Originals' producers. Rebekah's departure is not The Originals' fault. It is not Claire Holt's fault. It is not Julie Plec's fault. It's just that sometimes our favorite shows can only be perfect for a brief while and then we have to adjust to new situations. That's life! And it seems like both George Clooney and ER did okay after he left, right?

Tina Fey and Lindsay Lohan recently saw each other while appearing on Jimmy Fallon’s first “Tonight Show,” but don’t expect a “Mean Girls” sequel, despite rumors to the contrary.
“Yeah, I saw her at the first episode of the ‘Tonight Show.’ We did that bit with Jimmy, and I said to her, ‘Oh, I think someone may call us about doing some kind of reunion because next month is the tenth anniversary of the movie.’ And so really… if everyone’s around we might try to do some kind of like panel discussion,” Tina told Access Hollywood at the junket for her new film, “Muppets Most Wanted.”
“But it’s not like — it’s not another movie. At most it would be like a panel discussion with a plate of hot wings.
“No, it’s definitely not a movie,” Tina added. “It’s just the anniversary is coming up, so everybody get your pink shirts. It’s been 10 years. You can tell when you look at me. It’s been 10 years.”
Juanes Rocks 'The Tonight Show' in Spanish: Will His Performance Kickstart a Wave of Spanish-Speaking Artists on Late Night TV?
On Tuesday night, Jimmy Fallon welcomed Juanes to The Tonight Show, where he rocked the stage with his performance of La Luz off of his latest album, Loco de Amor. He also set a precedent as the first-ever Spanish language performer on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, since Fallon took over for former host, Jay Leno. (In 2012, Juanes also performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.)
During his Tonight Show performance, Juanes was beaming with joy and his energy was contagious, it was as if he was picking up where he left off, resonating an effortless cool and a humble nature that he's always possessed throughout his career.
I freaking LOVE this song and i'm glad he's getting more exposure. VIVA EL REY COLOMBIANO!!!!!
From GRRM's livejournal:
The Rogues Are Coming...
. . . and much sooner than expected.
Our good friends at Bantam Spectra have just informed me and my partner-in-crime Gardner Dozois that they have moved up the publication date of our next mammoth crossgenre anthology ROGUES. . . to June 17. Yes, this year. Three months from now, in other words.
If you enjoyed WARRIORS and DANGEROUS WOMEN, we think you'll love ROGUES. It may be our strongest anthology yet. We have some amazing writers and some incredible stories in this one. The table of contents, as previously announced:
Twenty stories not enough for you?
Okay, okay, we've decided to add a twenty-first, for all you fans of fake history.
"The Princess and the Queen," Archmaester Gyldayn's somewhat abbreviated account of the Dance of the Dragons, got a great response from all the folks who read it in DANGEROUS WOMEN, so we've dipped back into the archmaester's somewhat disorganized piles of scrolls and crumbling manuscripts, and brought forth another piece of his unpublished history. "The Rogue Prince, or, the King's Brother," will tell the story of the years leading up to the calamitous events of "The Princess and the Queen" during the reign of King Viserys I Targaryen, with particular attention to the role played by the king's brother, Prince Daemon, a rogue if there ever was one. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as you did "The Princess and the Queen."
(And yes, sadly, "The Rogue Prince" is an abridged account as well. For the full version, you will all need to wait some years, until we publish the complete history of House Targaryen in the GRRMarillion... which, by the way, I've decided I am going to call FIRE AND BLOOD, since the GRRMarillion joke has grown somewhat stale by now).
We're got something for everyone in ROGUES -- SF, mystery, historical fiction, epic fantasy, sword and sorcery, comedy, tragedy, crime stories, mainstream. And rogues, cads, scalawags, con men, thieves, and scoundrels of all descriptions. If you love Harry Flashman and Cugel the Clever, as I do, this is the book for you.
Oh, and speaking of DANGEROUS WOMEN... it's now HUGO NOMINATION time, and we have lots of great stories in both DW and OLD MARS that are eligible, so I hope you'll remember some of them when filling out your ballots.
In what appeared to be an editing error, a Fox affiliate in Oklahoma managed to remove the only mention of evolution from Sunday night’s Cosmos science documentary by cutting only 15 seconds from the broadcast.
The much-anticipated reboot of Carl Sagan’s legendary Cosmos premiered on Sunday with an overview of the history of the Universe, from the Big Bang to the advent of humans.
It wasn’t until the last 10 minutes of the show that host Neil deGrasse Tyson hinted at human evolution.
“We are newcomers to the Cosmos,” he explained. “Our own story only begins on the last night of the cosmic year.”
“Three and a half million years ago, our ancestors — your and mine left these traces,” Tyson said, pointing to footprints. “We stood up and parted ways from them. Once we were standing on two feet, our eyes were no longer fixated on the ground. Now, we were free to look up and wonder.”
But for viewers of KOKH-TV in Oklahoma City, that 15 second paragraph was replaced by an awkwardly-inserted commercial for the evening news. The edit was caught on video and uploaded to YouTube by Adam Bates.
At least one of the segments advertised in the news promo — a story about a 12-year-old bow hunter— did air on that evening’s newscast.
Watch the edited and original versions of Cosmos below, broadcast March 9, 2013.

Kylie Jenner plays it cool in sunglasses as she heads out of Sugarfish Sushi after grabbing lunch on Sunday afternoon (March 9) in Calabasas, Calif.
The 16-year-old reality star was joined by her pals Jaden Smith, Willow Smith, Moises Arias, and Mateo Arias.
PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Kylie Jenner
“Hey East Coasters #KUWTK starts in 10 minutes!! Hope you are all tuning in!” Kylie later tweeted.
Earlier in the month, Willow was spotted carrying a handful of yummy cookies as she exited a local Whole Foods in Encino.
Sarah Jessica Parker answers all of our questions (well, 73 of them at least) revealing everything from her distaste for parsley, love of Greece, and bias of globes that glow. And what is kokoreç?
Taylor Momsen is going to Hell., and judging by the cover photo of The Pretty Reckless’ sophomore full length effort, she plans on being damn sexy when she arrives on the Devil’s doorstep. Whether or not Going to Hell is a legitimate confessional or a full fledged attempt at Momsen shedding her adolescent television days, her cigarette-laden growl and open arms acceptance of an eternity in flames is pretty convincing. “Follow Me Down,” the opening bit, sets the tone for the record right away. Opening with the sound of rain and the sexual innuendo of erotic moans and heavy breathing, transcended into a hard hitting track with a southern blues-like hook that will challenge the listener to not tap their foot along to the melody, it just may be the best track on the record but there is plenty more where that came from. The title track, “Going to Hell” is a percussion driven jam that’s anchored by an exceptional metal guitar riff and an angry, yet arousing, growl that conveys the message that: “We’re not going to heaven and we really don’t give a shit!” “Heaven Knows,” the third song in, demonstrates the abilities of the entire band. No, it doesn’t quite get the head bangers out in full force, but it does resurrect that old time music feel with a tambourine beat and a 70′s esq guitar cue along with a chorus of hand clapping and choir voices.
A seeming homage to a timeless period in rock music, Momsen’s effort on this particular tune rings like a splash of Stevie Nicks with a dash of attitude prescribed by Joan Jett herself (Yes, a high praise but for a very unique piece of song writing). Leave room for “Burn,” a short acoustic ballad that strays away from the hard rock roots of the album, yet is balanced in a manner that showcases Momsen’s vocal abilities to a much cleaner degree while not abandoning her trademark gravelly pitch. A breath of fresh air before transitioning back into the basics with cuts such as “Why’d You Bring a Shotgun to the Party?” and “Fucked Up World.” Oozing with attitude, rebellion and spunk, “Going to Hell” is a juggernaut of well balanced metal, alternative and classical style rock. Throw in an attack of well written lyrics and story telling that compliments the music itself, along with the ability to manipulate any shortcomings for a young band of twenty somethings(hold on... has the writer actually seen the dudes in this band?!) with an impressive ceiling still looming above them, you don’t want to skip this one without a cover to cover listen. With this follow up to the 2010 debut of “Light Me Up,” The Pretty Reckless have made great strides in just about every aspect of honing their skills and their attitude. Taking the next leap into “Like us or not, we’re gonna be here awhile.” And why not? They know they’re going to Hell anyway.
"Absolution" is my jam rn... and bitch why is Burn so short?!
Kylie Jenner has slammed claims that she has had plastic surgery.The Australian edition of OK! Magazine alleged the 16-year-old reality star has had a nose job, lip fillers and Botox. And a representative for Miss Jenner told Mail Online: ‘That’s so ridiculous and not true.’
The publication stated that it had two American based plastic surgeons compare old and new photos of Kylie.Dr. Robert Guida claimed that it looked like Kylie’s nose had been narrowed.Meanwhile Dr. Bruno alleged that Kylie looks as though she has had fillers in her lips and suggested that her arched eyebrows could be a sign of Botox.
A documentary that claims to expose the ill-treatment of orcas and problems with trainer safety at SeaWorld has spurred action from a California state lawmaker.
Assemblyman Richard Bloom, D-Santa Monica, has proposed legislation banning the use of orcas for performance purposes at California aquatic theme parks as a result of details revealed in the movie Blackfish.
The documentary, which has drawn global attention since its 2013 premiere, chronicles the 2010 death of SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau, who was pulled into a pool and drowned by an orca at the chain's Orlando, Fla., park. SeaWorld has a park in San Diego.
According to a release from Bloom's office, the Orca Welfare and Safety Act (AB 2140) would eliminate performance-based entertainment and captive breeding of the whales with an ultimate goal of phasing out killer whale captivity in California.
"There is no justification for the continued captive display of orcas for entertainment purposes," Bloom said in the release. "These beautiful creatures are much too large and far too intelligent to be confined in small, concrete tanks for their entire lives. It is time to end the practice of keeping orcas captive for human amusement."
In a written statement, SeaWorld spokesman David Koontz criticized Bloom for associating with "extreme animal rights activists, many of whom regularly campaign against SeaWorld and other accredited marine mammal parks and institutions."
"Included in the group are some of the same activists that partnered with PETA in bringing the meritless claim that animals in human care should be considered slaves under the 13th amendment of the US Constitution — a clear publicity stunt," Koontz wrote. "This legislation appears to reflect the same sort of out-of-the-mainstream thinking. SeaWorld, one of the world's most respected zoological institutions, already operates under multiple federal, state and local animal welfare laws.
"We engage in business practices that are responsible, sustainable and reflective of the balanced values all Americans share," Koontz wrote.
Syfy is getting back into the miniseries business. The genre-focused cable network has completed a deal for a six-hour event series, in the spirit of Battlestar Galactica, set for a November premiere.
The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Syfy has given the greenlight to Ascension -- created and written by Philip Levens (Smallville), who will also serve as executive producer and showrunner. Universal Cable Productions and Lionsgate Television are co-financing and distributing the project, with Jason Blum's Blumhouse producing in association with Sea To Sky Studios.
Part Battlestar and part Downton Abbey, Ascension takes place on century-long space shuttle journey, where hundreds of men, women and children left earth behind at the start of the Cold War. Nearly 50 years after their covert 1963 mission launched with the intention of colonizing a new world, a young woman is mysteriously murdered -- prompting the population to question the nature of the mission as they near the point of no return.
“Syfy is more committed than ever to bringing to life epic event television," said network president David Howe. "We have a rich history in this arena, from Steven Spielberg’s Taken to the highly acclaimed mini that launched the Battlestar Galactica series, to reimagined takes on classic tales such as Alice and Tin Man. In keeping with that grand tradition, we are delighted to bring this thrilling, provocative and intelligent event to our fans later this year.”
It hasn't been since 2009's Alice that Syfy aired a miniseries. And like Battlestar before it, Syfy is keeping its options open for Ascension to serve as a jumping off point for a potential TV series.
We want to be the best science-fiction channel that we possibly can, and in some respects, that means going back to the more traditional sci-fi/fantasy that fans often say they feel we've exited," Howe said. "We're going to occupy that space in a way we haven't for the past few years."
“Phil Levens has crafted a bold and surprising spin on the space opera," said McGoldrick. "We are equally excited to embark on this journey with our partners at UCP, Sea To Sky, Lionsgate, Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions and also with Mark Stern who shepherded this project while at Syfy.”
The series will be produced in Montreal, Quebec, with Blum and former Syfy originals exec Stern joining Levens as EPs along with Sea To Sky Studios' Ivan Fecan, Tim Gamble and Brett Burlock.
Syfy plans to premiere Ascension in November and air it through December.
As a kid growing up in Texas — from Amarillo to San Antonio to Dallas — Arden Cho remembers going to sleep and praying she’d wake up with blond hair and blue eyes. “That’s just all I saw on TV 20 years ago,” remembers Cho. “I didn’t know that there were Zhang Ziyis, Kim Yunjins and all these sexy, hot Asian women out there!”
Nowadays, young Asian American girls look up to Cho as a role model, ever since she broke out in the YouTube world in 2010, acting opposite Ryan Higa in the online movie Agents of Secret Stuff, directed by Wong Fu Productions. Her co-star encouraged her to upload her own content to YouTube, and her two channels combined — one for her film/TV work and the other for her personal videos and music — now boast almost 200,000 subscribers and 18.5 million views.
For as long as Cho can remember, before she even dreamed of being an actress or singer, she has always wanted to work with youth. Her YouTube channels reflect this, with her series titled “Follow Your Heart,” where she interviews creative types about how they found the courage to pursue their dreams, and her vlogs “Ask Arden,” where she shares her thoughts on everything from dating to fashion to being comfortable with who you are.
Connecting with her young Asian American fans is especially important to Cho because, she says, she grew up shy and insecure and would have loved to have had an older sister to tell her that everything was going to be OK. Though she has more confidence today, the entertainment industry is notoriously superficial (she has been told that she’d have to get plastic surgery if she wanted to work in Korea), and the constant auditioning can wear any hard worker down. And despite booking a high-profile Clinique Asia campaign and many close calls, her only official “Hollywood” acting credits for a long time were one- episode roles in CSI:NY, Pretty Little Liars and Rizzoli & Isles. Even everyday YouTube fans weren’t always supportive (“YouTube is seriously tough,” she says. “People are brutal — they either love you or hate you”).
In 2013, Cho realized she may not have control over the acting opportunities she was given, but she had written a lot of her own original songs that she could record and release on her own, if she could only get the courage to do it. “I realized, ‘Man, I’m such a hypocrite,’ because I tell fans to follow their hearts, but here I was, terrified to put my music out there,” she says. “I was scared of being vulnerable.”
Releasing her first EP, My True Happy, was an act of freedom. “These are the stories of my life, my heartaches and my experiences,” says Cho. “It was like I put out my secret stories that I had never really shared with anybody.”
She was this close to giving up acting and instead touring around Asia with her music for a few months, when suddenly, she landed the role of Kira in the third season of MTV’s cult hit series Teen Wolf. Kira is not only the lead character Scott’s new love interest but, in the context of the show’s dark, supernatural realm, she’s the mysterious new girl at school who has some tricks up her sleeve.
“I got to do a lot of action and work with amazing stunt choreographers,” says Cho. “I had bruises over my whole body, and there were days that I was so sore that I couldn’t even walk, but it’s all totally worth it because the footage is so beautiful.”
Though she loves her current gig (there are rumors that show creator Jeff Davis is developing a Kira spin-off show specifically for her), Cho doesn’t take her success for granted. “Being an Asian actress, roles that are on the table often aren’t our first picks,” she says. “But when Teen Wolf came along, I really couldn’t have written a better part that I’d want to play. Sometimes it takes all these disappointments to make you appreciate something when it finally works out.”
Teen Wolf airs Mondays at 10 p.m. on MTV.
IN HER OWN WORDS
1. She’s a little bit country.
“I used to have a really hard Southern drawl. You can still kind of hear it sometimes, especially when I sing. I really love that country music tells stories; I hope that one day, I can record a full country album.”
2. She’s been on both sides of love.
“The song ‘Memory’ is about someone who walked out and left me with so much pain. [Whereas] ‘I’m the One to Blame’ is about how I screwed it up. Sometimes when you’re insecure in a relationship, you push people away because you’re scared, so that’s about me saying sorry. I’m not sure if [that guy] knows the song’s about him.”
3. She wants young girls to know that nobody is perfect.
“It took 20 years for me to feel good about myself. I didn’t wear shorts until a year and a half ago, and now I’m wearing miniskirts on Teen Wolf. Every girl looks in the mirror and wants to change things — I still do — but imperfection is what makes people beautiful.”
4. She has faith.
“As a believer, I want to live my life with purpose. People think if you’re Christian, you have to be a teacher, doctor or pastor, but I think I can be an actor and still be someone who lives out what God intended me to do.”
Taylor Swift spent Thursday cooking with Ina Garten at her home in East Hampton, leading to speculation that she will make an appearance on an upcoming episode of The Food Network's The Barefoot Contessa.
Swift tweeted excitedly: "A day of cooking in the Hamptons with my HERO. How bad can that be?"
Garten shared her excitement: "Just another day at the office - OMG cooking with Taylor Swift! Love her!!!"
Swift is a longtime Ina Garten fan. In 2010, she told Parade: "I watch Ina Garten, I love her. She's awesome," while in 2013 she named Garten as one of her dream dinner party guests: "She could help me cook, too!"
The affection is mutual. Garten declared herself a "huge Taylor Swift fan" back in 2012. She has pinned pictures of Swift to her official Pinterest page ("Love Taylor Swift's music!") and advised readers of her blog to play Swift's "upbeat and fun" music while serving cocktails. Garten has also admitted to listening to Swift's songs to get "pumped up" before filming a show.
Garten has previously said she is selective about inviting guests to appear on her show: "A lot of people have asked to be guests, but I really keep it to friends. I don't think you can fake a party."
The unknown band of 3 ladies Elaiza wins the German contest with their song "Is it right" as a huge surprise.
Facebook Inc Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg blasted the U.S. government's electronic surveillance practices on Thursday, saying he had personally called President Barack Obama to voice his displeasure.
"When our engineers work tirelessly to improve security, we imagine we're protecting you against criminals, not our own government," Zuckerberg said in a post on his personal Facebook page.
"I've called President Obama to express my frustration over the damage the government is creating for all of our future. Unfortunately, it seems like it will take a very long time for true full reform," the 29-year-old Zuckerberg continued.
The phone call and Zuckerberg's 300-word missive on Thursday come amid a series of revelations about controversial government surveillance practices that were leaked by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden.
"The president spoke last night with Mark Zuckerberg about recent reports in the press about alleged activities by the U.S. intelligence community," a White House official said.
The official declined further comment and referred to the National Security Agency's statement released earlier on Thursday saying recent media reports that allege the NSA has infected million of computers around the world malware and that the NSA is impersonating U.S. social media or other websites are inaccurate.
Facebook, which operates the world's No. 1 Internet social network with 1.2 billion users, declined to comment beyond Zuckerberg's post.
Secret documents published on news website The Intercept on Wednesday showed that the NSA impersonated Facebook web pages in order to gather information from targets. When those people thought they were logging into Facebook, they were actually communicating with the NSA. The agency then used malicious code on the fake page to break into the targets' computers and remove data from them.
Last year, Facebook moved to encrypt all its pages, making such impersonation more difficult.
Previous media reports based on leaked Snowden documents detail how the government may have tapped into communications cables that link data centers owned by Google Inc and Yahoo Inc, intercepting user data without the companies' knowledge or cooperation.

Lena Headey, who plays Cersei Lannister, and Jerome Flyn, who takes on the role of Bronn, are "not on speaking terms" but it's unsure why.
"Jerome and Lena aren’t on speaking terms any more and they are never in the same room at the same time," a member of the show's crew told the Daily Telegraph.
"It’s a pity because they appeared to have patched things up for a while, but now the word is they should be kept apart at all costs."
This must be pretty difficult to do if the pair are in the same scene, especially as Jerome plays the bodygaurd of Lena's omscreen brother Tyrian Lannister.
It is thought that their romantic relationship is to blame for the hostile situation as the pair were first linked to one another back in 2002 and have both since been involved in other relationships.
Although they have always been coy about their romance, Anne Headey, Lena’s aunt, confirmed that they were once an item.
"We’re not a couple right now, people have seen us together and jumped to conclusions," Jerome said of his relationship with Lena back in 2003. "I can’t rule out a relationship with her in the future, I just don’t know."
