Anne Hathaway in Talks for a Coronavirus Heist Rom-Com and We Cannot Wait to See Her Mask-Acting

Hollywood is ready to laugh at the coronavirus pandemic, it seems. Anne Hathaway is in final negotiations for Mr. and Mrs. Smith director Doug Liman’s heist romantic-comedy set during our current crisis, Lockdown. Per Variety, Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders) penned the script. Elsewhere in the galaxy, Liman is attached to direct Tom Cruise’s collaboration with NASA and SpaceX to create the first movie ever shot in space. Anne Hathaway, already having been to space in Interstellar, will stick to the earthbound tales this time. She won her Supporting Actress Oscar for 2012’s Les Misérables, then swapped the misery for movies like Ocean’s 8, The Hustle, and most recently The Last Thing He Wanted, directed by Dee Rees.

There’s currently no end in sight for the coronavirus in the United States, but Hollywood is already reflecting on it. Freeform eagerly brought Love in the Time of Coronavirus, a two-part miniseries, to life over a weekend event last month. The entertainment industry finds a way. Few details are known about Lockdown, but if it’s anything like reality, the heist will either be to recover that $1,200 stimulus check from the government (which many Americans still haven’t received) or to retrieve something from an office no one has been to in months. Sends shivers down my spine just thinking about it.

Red Lobster’s New Mountain Dew Margarita Looks Wild

No one:

Absolutely no one:

Red Lobster: May we interest you in a margarita made with Mountain Dew?

Yes, the above question is one that Red Lobster servers can now ask customers, because the seafood chain has released a freakin’ Mountain Dew margarita, just when we thought 2020 couldn’t possibly get any wilder. Aptly dubbed the DEW Garita, the radioactive-looking cocktail has a “top-secret recipe,” so I’m not quite sure what other ingredients are involved besides the lime-green soda, but I’m assuming some sort of tequila is mixed in, and it appears to feature a spicy-salty rim. Just thinking about the combination of Mountain Dew and tequila makes my insides churn more than frat-house bathrooms and expired milk combined — but hey, to each their own.

A press release about the brand-new beverage claims that it allegedly “pairs perfectly with Red Lobster’s iconic Cheddar Bay Biscuits,” which . . . [insert “Sure, Jan” meme here]. If you’re interested in taste-testing the DEW Garita, you should call your local Red Lobster before heading there to make sure it’s available, as they’ll be rolling out to locations nationwide by the end of 2020. Despite this drink’s chaotic energy, one thing’s for damn sure: Tom Jackson from Queer Eye‘s series premiere episode is most definitely going to be hyped about it (remember his love for “redneck margaritas,” aka Mountain Dew and tequila?), and I have a hunch he’s not the only one.

Who is Delta Goodrem’s boyfriend, Matthew Copley?

Published

Apart from ‘hunky guitar player’.

If you’ve tuned in to any of Delta Goodrem‘s Instagram Live concerts in the past few months, you would have seen a hunky guitar player hanging out in the background. The comment section is often peppered with questions about the mystery man, especially because he is very easy on the eyes.

Well, it turns out that he’s actually Goodrem’s boyfriend, Matthew Copley. The pair have been together for a couple of years.

He just popped up in the singer’s music video for her new song ‘Solid Gold’. He’s also credited as a writer on the song. Here’s everything you need to know about the hunky guitar player.

Who is Matthew Copley?

Matt Copley is an Aussie musician, though we don’t know much about him. He was in the band Sons of Midnight with singer Conrad Sewell, and they toured as the opener for acts like Simple Plan and Avril Lavigne. The band last released an album in 2012, and it’s unclear whether they’re still together.

He’s also a songwriter and producer — he’s credited as a writer on Goodrem’s bushfire charity song ‘Let It Rain’.

Based on similar photos the pair have separately shared on Instagram, it looks like he also played backup on songs Goodrem recorded in LA last year for her new album.

How did Matthew and Delta meet?

Though the specifics aren’t clear, Goodrem revealed that the pair met through the music scene while she was touring in 2017. “Music is how we met, it’s what we both do,” she told Stellar magazine earlier this year.

If we had to guess, it’s likely that Goodrem and Copley met through their mutual friend Conrad Sewell. In 2016 Goodrem and Sewell performed together a few times, and they’re both signed to Sony Music. Perhaps Sewell introduced her to Copley.

Goodrem revealed that while self-isolating together this year, they’ve both been creating a lot of music. “It’s a relationship of respect,” she said. “Matt is an incredible musician and we really enjoy working together. It’s really about just being creative in the household.”

How long have they been dating?

In early 2018, the pair were photographed kissing in Hawaii — but don’t expect much information from her. “I made a conscious decision when I was 30 that I’m not somebody who wants to talk about relationships,” she told InStyle Australia.

The couple are extremely private — they’ve never been photographed together at any events and have only shared a couple of photos on Instagram.

If you scroll all the way back to 2017 on Copley’s Instagram there’s a video of the two of them writing a song together, but no indication that they were dating.

The first photo of the two of them together is from January 2019, while they were in Byron Bay celebrating New Years.

What is Delta Goodrem’s dating history?

Considering she grew up in the public eye, Goodrem’s dating history has always been well-documented. No wonder she’s now choosing to keep it private.

Her first high-profile relationship was with tennis player Mark Philippoussis — but he turned out to be a rat who (allegedly) cheated on her with Paris Hilton.

For seven years she dated — and was engaged to — Irish singer Brian McFadden. They met while recording the duet ‘Almost Here’ for Goodrem’s second album. After their split in 2011 Goodrem was briefly linked to Nick Jonas while she lived in the US.

Does Matthew Copley have Instagram?

Yep! While you may have gotten used to seeing him perched in the background of Goodrem’s virtual concerts, he’s also got his own account which he sporadically uses.
