A “dad bod” is a balance between a beer gut and working out. It was all thanks to a sophomore named Mackenzie Pearson who wrote an article that went viral. Lots of women seem to love this type of unpretentious guy who loves hanging with the kids and doesn’t let himself go too much. Notice how many celebs let themselves go after they make it big. Doctor Oz was just on television saying that dad bods are actually unhealthy. Doctor Oz said men with dad bods needs to exercise just ten minutes a week. That’s just three minutes of your time, celebrities!
Remember the guy from the “Knocked Up” movie? According to Seth Rogen, he had fans who loved his chubbiness. “I was their guy so they were like, ‘I can be chubby. Seth Rogen’s chubby, so who cares.’ But now I’m not so chubby anymore. So now they’re like, ‘I have to lose weight,'” said Rogen. Nobody shall have to lose weight anymore. Let the dad bods inspire Seth Rogen and his legion of daddy fans.
Beyonce revealed her new vegan diet, but what about Jay-Z? Will he be joining in the vegan fun? No word on that but her trainer Marco Borges revealed on Mens Health that he does a total body workout to maintain his dad bod. “When you have a schedule like Jay-Z’s, you don’t know when or where you’ll fit in your next workout,” said Borges. Jay-Z is truly one of the best dad bods since he is actually a dad of Blue Ivy.
Will Ferrell is fit enough to do all those action scenes in “Get Hard,” so he must be doing something to keep his dad bod fit. “Now I’m trying to follow in the footsteps of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey.’ That’s all I’m trying to keep up with. I use the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ diet. I don’t think it’s scandalous at all. It promotes men’s fitness and awareness of how to keep your body and mind in shape,” Ferrell told E! News. Christian Grey doesn’t have much of a dad bod. This must be the 50-year-old shades of grey diet.
According to New York magazine, the ideal dad bod is owned by Jason Segel. A while back, somebody stood in the way of our universally beloved dad bod owner. Yes, it’s true. Some Hollywood executive forced Segel to lose weight for a role in the movie “The Five-Year Engagement,” according to Jezebel. The executive thought it was a stretch that Emily Blunt’s character would be in love with a dad bod like Segel. Who’s laughing now?
Adam Sandler has a new movie coming in July called “Pixels” so you can probably bring the other fellow dad bods to the theaters with the kids. He also has a four-movie production deal with Netflix so “Dad bod” Sandler will never have to change his physique for as long as he lives. They do holograms now, right? He could just use a hologram of a fitter version of himself for new movie roles if the need arises.
Just ask Olivia Wilde if she likes dad bods and her answer will probably be yes. She has a baby with Jason Sudeikis, making him a true dad bod. Sudeikis is going to be in a movie this August called “Masterminds” about a retelling of a North Carolina bank robbery. He won’t play a dad but he will play a hitman hired to take out a bank employee played by Zach Galifianakis.
This is a dad bod with a Peabody award, five Emmy nominations, and his own show, according to Vanity Fair. Jordan Peele from the show “Key and Peele” helped rack up more than 600 millions views on their Youtube channel with his comedy partner Keegan Michael Key. Maybe Coca-cola is the secret to keeping his dad bod fit, since Peele once tweeted “no, you don’t” to people who say they like Diet Coke more than regular Coke.
Never let go, Jack. Never let go. Nobody can really say Leonardo DiCaprio let himself go. After all, this is the man who was able to supposedly date Rihanna in all of those paparazzi photos at the club! He is still the guy who thinks he is the “king of the world” and his dad bod will make Rihanna’s heart go on just like in that Celine Dion song for the movie “Titanic.”
John Krasinski was Jim on “The Office” and he also loves fantasy football, according to Mens Health. This is a guy who could easily be seen tossing back a few with his good friend Jason Segel or Seth Rogen watching the game. “I’m not necessarily the most worked-out guy in the world. I’d rather just go out and play hoops,” said Krasinski. That is such a dad bod thing to say.
You thought Kelly Clarkson was your American Idol but the true idol that captured America’s hearts was sitting at the judges table the whole time. Simon Cowell said at one point that he did 100 press-ups in the morning and again at work, according to Daily Mail. “I work out, take lots of vitamins and think I look good for my age,” said Cowell. Dad bods have to stay in shape or else they would be dad blobs!
He is on the show “Fresh Off the Boat” and before that he was fresh off the journey of becoming a dad. Randall Park is a dad bod that has the distinction of being the only Asian American actor to ever play Kim Jong Un in a movie with James Franco and Seth Rogen. He is in the upcoming movie “Trainwreck” starring Amy Schumer and Bill Hader. This dad bod will ensure that the movie is not a financial trainwreck.
Paul Rudd proves that you can be a dad bod, a romantic comedy lead, and a Marvel Superhero all at the same time. Marvel Studios has been hyping the new “Ant-Man” movie for a while. Paul Rudd will play a man who can shrink down to the size of an ant. Look forward to seeing Ant-Man in “Captain America: Civil War” next year. They should make a movie called “Dad Bod Man.”
Denzel Washington has a dad bod that does not look like his 60 years of age. He is still doing his thing with a role in the movie “The Magnificent Seven” and he also did “The Equalizer” last year. He revealed that he went vegan once when he spoke about preparing for the role. “Yeah, last summer I went on a vegan diet just to try it and it was actually quite healthy,” Washington told GQ.
The originator of the dad bod trend, Mackenzie Pearson, wrote, “While we all love a sculpted guy, there is just something about the dad bod that makes boys seem more human, natural, and attractive.” Then the Washington Post came out with an article referring to Jon Hamm, Jason Segel, and Seth Rogen. What? Don Draper has a dad bod? He must be the most sophisticated and well-dressed dad bod in Hollywood if that’s the case.
There is a Twitter account called “DadBodSquad” that highlights different dad bods of the day. They chose an unflattering photo of Vince Vaughn about to devour an ice cream cone and wrote, “Our celebrity #DadBod of the day goes to the great Vince Vaughn. That’s a #Dadbod that just won’t quit.” This is the man who starred in movies with Jennifer Aniston and actually dated her! When will the madness end?
Dr. Oz: “I’m Very Concerned About the Corona Virus, Here’s Why”
While coronaviruses have been known to medical science since the 1960s, few have been anywhere near as dangerous as this new one from the market in Wuhan China.
A coronavirus is typified by its protective shell which resembles a crown or a halo under a microscope. That is where it gets its name. The average coronavirus does little more than cause the symptoms of the common cold, sniffles, cough, flu-like symptoms and so on. Part of the reason that these viruses are so hard to prevent from causing millions of colds each year is their protective shell. They can remain on a surface for hours, sometimes days, before they begin to lose structural integrity. But few trigger symptoms as severe as this one known as 2019-nCoV.
Dr. Oz had this to say about what has become known as the Wuhan Coronavirus, “It’s alarming, this is the big news today, the Chinese leadership is starting to say ‘this incubation period is a lot longer than we thought.’”
If this report is true, it means that many, many more people may be infected than have been reported- or even anticipated. It means that people could be walking around, infected, and not even know it- not taking precautions and spreading the virus everywhere they go. That means anyone who has recently returned from the area around the Wuhan market, where the outbreak started, could be carrying the disease.
At the time of this writing, the total enumerated infection count is over 1,800. The total deaths are approaching 200. Other researchers are suggesting that this virus has a rapid mutation rate. That is particularly terrifying because it is what made the HIV-AIDS virus so difficult to treat.
At present, the World Health Organization had laid down a series of suggestions to help people avoid infection.
They advise that anyone who may come into contact with the virus should:
- Wash their hands frequently
- Maintain good sanitation on and around all frequently used objects and surfaces
- Avoid centers of mass travel such as airports
- Sneeze and cough into the elbow or a tissue
- Take immunity-boosting supplements like vitamin C
The source of the infection is believed to have come from a specific market in Wuhan, where live animals were kept in stalls for sale and trade. Researchers believe the virus came from either a snake or a bat. The initial cases of illness were reported in December 2019 by employees of the Wuhan market. That market is now shut down for the foreseeable future.
As health officials struggle to understand the virus and contain its progress, other researchers are asking even more startling questions. The shell of this virus is similar to the shell of a virus created in a university research lab in 2015 at the University of North Carolina. What’s more, there is a known military biological weapons lab in Wuhan China.
If these reports are true, it could have serious implications, not only for global health- but for relations between the US and China.
Big Brother Contestants Make How Much on the Show?!?
Big Brother has been a wildly popular, dramatic reality TV game show since 2000. Audiences are captivated by the twists, the turns, the strange alliances, and the betrayals. The show is based on a Dutch program with the same premise which also became wildly popular in Spain and Germany before the reboot came to America.
As the US version grew in popularity, the producers eventually made it possible for fans to watch the contestants on a non-live streaming video feed available 24 hours a day seven days a week. Yes, the contestants on Big Brother are now on display to be viewed by anyone in the world at every waking moment. How they avoid getting caught in their all-togethers or during toilet breaks, we don’t know. Maybe they have certain camera-safe areas to which they can retreat.
Later on, the house the Big Brother contestants live in was stripped of all communication devices- depriving them of contact with the outside world. That is- except for the live feeds the public has unfettered access to. So, if one of them was being held hostage, we suppose they could let us know.
So the question came up of, how much do the contestants really earn? By playing the game they have the chance to make friends, or enemies, become Internet sensations, and to win half a million dollars. But, given everything they have to put up with; being ripped out of their lives, possibly losing jobs, experiencing the anguish of betrayal- all while being on public display- do they get anything else?
According to a report by Reality Blurred, a site that follows the happenings of reality TV stars, programs, and related matters- the contestants “[…] receive $750 per week that they’re in the house.”
Any pay they receive while in the jury house is harder to account for since nothing about it appears on the contract. However, it is believed that contestants receive consolation prizes during their time out of the main house. It also seems reasonable that the consolation prizes received in the jury house should be worth at least $500 since keeping them away from other gainful employment for less than that would be near to slavery. (We’re looking at you, jury duty.)
However, while the big prize on Big Brother is a cool half-million on top of what the contestants earn as their weekly salary, in reality- they have much more to gain in Internet stardom.
Many former Big Brother players have gone on to lucrative careers as influencers on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, and other social media sites. While any gains from that are unlikely to be as exhilarating as half a million in fast cash- the best of them certainly earn more than that over the long term.
So, it would appear that our curiosity MacGuffins on Big Brother are at least doing as well as someone earning minimum wage- while essentially fooling around Truman Show style.
Single Mom Irina Shayk, Happy Single
Those in the public spotlight seem to be an open book. Their every move seems to is covered by gossip sites. Their whereabouts are nearly always and it seems as if we are updated on who’s dating who and what luxurious vacation they are on.
That’s why it is surprising that Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper kept their relationship under wraps for so long, dating all the way back to 2015. The couple was first spotted together after the actor and model were first seen in 2015. Cooper split from Suki Waterhouse and Shayk ended her five-year relationship with soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo.
The couple was first seen together at a Broadway show, then shortly thereafter, the White House Correspondents’ dinner. Things seemed to move quickly from there. Within months the couple moved in together, soon they announced they were expecting.
Work Gets in the Way:
Irina, who has been quiet about her relationship and breakup with Bradley Cooper, recently spoke up about their relationship.
The couple ended their relationship in 2019, on the heels of the release of the stars’ remake of a Star is Born. The on-screen chemistry between Bradley Cooper and his co-star, Stefani Germanotta, better known as Lady Gaga, sent tongues wagging. Rumors were raging that the two co-stars were in a relationship based on their pationate adaption of the film.
Irina set the record straight in some recent interviews about the end of their relationship. According to Shayk, the couple hadn’t been getting along for quite some time. After the baby was born, Shayk was hoping that Cooper would put their family first and slow down his busy working schedule. She was secretly hoping that after A Star is Born was released and the promotional tour was over, he would spend more time at home. That was not the case.
Irina, 33, was ready to settle into family life. This included getting married and more children. But the marriage never happened, and Cooper’s work schedule was as busy as ever.
Irina felt that her expectations weren’t met and she didn’t have the commitment level she wanted from Cooper. Shortly after the Award season in June 2019, the news broke that the couple had split. Irina had taken baby Lea and moved out of the couples Los Angeles home.At first, the separation was thought to be temporary. Both partners have decided that they are better apart than together.
The couple continues to co-parent their daughter, but it seems like the couple are happty being apart. They both seem to be quite content focusing on their child and carreers.
Irina recently said that “life without Cooper” and being a single mom is “new ground.” She also said that just because two people are great on their own, they are not always good together.
Irina is a strong woman, and while she often feels overwhelmed being a single-mom, she’s ready for the challenge. Both parents are dedicated to doing what is best for their child and are curently working on a visitation schedule.
