Wait, for a pair of friends who have known each other for much of their lives, Mike and Marcus have somehow never had a conversation that led to, at the very least, a mention of Mike’s time as an undercover officer? If Marcus was a civilian, that’d be one thing; but since they’re both cops and good friends, this probably should have come up before the three-quel.
The pair were awards season couples goals once again at Sunday’s SAG Awards.

Jennifer Aniston took home the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series on Sunday, January 19, and she had someone very important watching her speech: Brad Pitt.
Yes, Pitt—who had just won the SAG for Best Supporting Actor—made a point to catch Aniston’s speech while he was backstage. “Another look at Brad Pitt watching Jennifer Aniston winning her statue for #TheMorningShow at the #SAGAwards,” The Hollywood Reporter captioned a tweet with a video of Pitt. Watch it for yourself, below:
Earlier in the evening, cameras caught Aniston’s reaction to a marriage joke Pitt made in his acceptance speech. He quipped that playing a character “who gets high, takes his shift off and doesn’t get on with his wife” was a stretch, which got a smile out of Aniston.
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston had a brief reunion backstage at the SAGs. Here are some photos of that:
But don’t think any of this is a sign they’re getting back together. These two are just good friends—Pitt said as much at the Golden Globes when asked if he hoped to run into Aniston at the show. “I’ll run into Jen. She’s a good friend. The second most important reunion of her year,” he said, making a subtle nod to all the rumors the Friends cast is reuniting.
According to E! News, the two also had a friendly (but brief) catch-up session at a Golden Globes after-party. “They said hello very quickly,” a source said. “Jen arrived after Brad. It was brief, but [they] were very cordial and friendly and seemed happy to be there. They approached each other once they saw each other inside and looked happy as they started to hug and say hello. Jen whispered something to Brad, but it wasn’t in an affectionate way. They both didn’t seem like they wanted to make a big deal about being together in the same room although it was a private party. They were trying to be low-key. Brad left shortly after and didn’t stay at the party long.”
Another Brad Pitt-Jennifer Aniston moment happened during awards season that’s sure to have the entire internet talking. At the Screen Actors Guild Awards on January 19, Pitt made a joke about marriage during his acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actor—and, of course, they panned right to Aniston’s face.
Pitt quipped that playing a character “who gets high, takes his shift off and doesn’t get on with his wife” was a stretch. Everyone laughed, including Aniston, who also smiled and looked up at Pitt with seemingly good vibes only.

Here’s another reaction shot:
Something similar happened at the 2020 Golden Globes. During Pitt’s acceptance speech for Best Supporting Actor he cracked, “I wanted to bring my mom, but I couldn’t because any woman I stand next to they say I’m dating,” and cameras caught Aniston’s reaction to that:
Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston have had nothing but nice things to say when asked about each other during interviews. At the Globes, Entertainment Tonight talked to Pitt about potentially running into Aniston at the show, and he said, “I’ll run into Jen. She’s a good friend. The second most important reunion of her year.”
According to E! News, the two actors had a friendly but brief interaction at a Globes after-party. “They said hello very quickly,” a source said. “Jen arrived after Brad.

The SAG Awards (Screen Actors Guild Awards) is always a fun show. For one, the only prizes given out are for acting, so you don’t have to suffer through a laundry list of confusing production categories. They move pretty quickly. And all your favorite celebrities actually show up. The 2020 SAG Awards, held on January 19, was no exception. Everyone from Reese Witherspoon to Jennifer Lopez made time for the 2020 SAG Awards—and they dressed for the occasion.
The red carpet was stacked with so many memorable looks. Bold colors, interesting cuts, plus stellar hair and makeup choices. In fact, I’d venture to say the Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet is the best one from awards season…so far. We still have the Grammys and Oscars to go, of course, and you know celebrities will turn it out for those events too.
But for now, let’s celebrate the best looks from the 2020 SAG Awards. See our picks, below.
But at least these fans still care. Just like the angry fans after Star Wars: The Last Jedi cared. And the fans upset after The Phantom Menace cared. And the fans who never liked the Ewoks cared! It all shows that, however you feel now, the Star Wars saga did one thing very right — it created a galaxy that still inspires incredible passion after 40 years.
For all the time our society spends talking about sex, many women are still asking themselves this question: What does an orgasm feel like?
As a certified sex therapist turned neuroscientist, I get asked about orgasms a lot. In my new column for Glamour, I’m here to address your pressing questions about sex, love, and pleasure. With over three decades of experience studying the science of pleasure, I can say without a doubt that the ability to experience potent and satisfying pleasures like orgasm isn’t a luxury—female pleasure is a necessity for our health and wellbeing (something I talk about in much more detail in my new book Why Good Sex Matters out later this month).
The female orgasm is a fantastic thing: it can be triggered by stimulating the clitoris, vagina, nipples, cervix, or an out-of-this-world combination of all of the above. Here what you need to know about what an orgasm feels like, and how to prioritize having more of them.
For starters, what is an orgasm?
Although there’ve been many attempts to define and describe the elusive experience of the “big O,” my favorite, and simplest of all, was coined by Charles Kinsey, a pioneer in the study of human sexuality. In scientist speak, he nailed it: “The expulsive discharge of neuromuscular tensions at the peak of the sexual response.”
Here’s how that breaks down: “Neuro” refers to the nerves of the body and neurons of the brain, “muscular” refers to muscles, and explosive discharge, well, speaks for itself. An orgasm is an intensely pleasurable response to sexual stimulation.
Having one doesn’t necessarily involve the genitals. Case in point: “nipplegasms.” There are even some talented individuals who appear able to experience a “thought” or “imagery”-induced orgasm, without any physical stimulation at all. Lucky them.
My research has demonstrated that the “big O “is indeed a “big brain” event, increasing blood flow to a range of brain regions, which is good for brain health. In fact, having an orgasm may be better for your brain than doing crossword puzzles—not to mention, much more fun.
What should an orgasm feel like?
A study done back in the 1970s asked male and female college students to describe how their orgasms felt. Most of the descriptions involved a pleasurable release of built-up tensions, experienced as an explosion of sensation, sometimes bordering on the ecstatic, and finally a wave of warmth, peace, and relaxation.
The truth is, orgasms exist on a spectrum: There are orgasms, and then there are ORGASMS! Some are pleasant, but not earth-shattering, and others are screaming-laughing-crying episodes of pure ecstasy. Both are important and valid.
I tend to discourage people from “shoulding” on themselves or their experiences. When we evaluate how things should feel or how they should be, we take ourselves away from the experience. My book, Why Good Sex Matters is not entitled Why Great Sex Matters for an important reason; when we start evaluating our erotic lives, chasing and seeking great sex or super or multiple orgasms, we miss the point, likely sabotaging our own capacity for pleasure. Good sex involves being present to the experience we are having. And a good orgasm is any orgasm that comes along.
What is the difference between the female orgasm and the male orgasm?
One big difference is that males have a refractory period after orgasm, which shuts down the sex party, at least for a while. Females are not wired that way—women are capable of experiencing multiple orgasms during sexual activity. In a recent study using a nationally representative sample of 1005 women, a whopping 47% of women reported having multiple orgasms.
Hey, Monica Aldama, consider this Chrissy Teigen’s Navarro audition.
In the hilarious clip, Teigen stretches her splits while her assistant, Christine, does crunches nearby. They both lament their chances of making it on mat (if you know, you know) before name-dropping everyone’s favorite “stunter” from the series, Jerry.
Teigen, like most of us, has grown completely addicted to Netflix’s newest docu-series which follows a cheerleading squad from Corsicana, Texas, as they prepare to win another national title. The sheer talent of the team is enough to get anyone, even cheerleading novices, hooked on the show, but it’s the awe-inspiring stories of each of the members that will have you bawling your eyes out by the time the squad competes in Daytona.
This isn’t the first time Teigen has shared her thoughts on the Internet’s current obsession. Earlier in the week, the cookbook author posted a throwback from her own high school cheerleading days claiming to have “sucked” at the sport (her splits would’ve fooled us).
“Watching cheer on Netflix got me reminiscing about how i sucked at cheerleading almost as much as I sucked at doing my brows,” she captioned a shot of her posing in her red and white uniform, complete with pom poms. “Truly no idea how I made this team. The best part is they claimed there was no JV/varsity but one squad got to cheer for basketball and football and the other (mine) got volleyball and wrestling. I still remember my mat cheers though. Go fight win baby. Go fight win.”
Perhaps Teigen’s video will persuade Aldama, Navarro’s tough but loving coach, to start an all-celebrity squad. Cheering With the Stars, anyone?
Per Comicbook.com, which apparently got the inside line, the sequel to Spider-Man: Far From Home is set to start filming in July 2020 and production is expected to run through November 2020. The movie is expected to visit some interesting locations for production: Atlanta, New York, Los Angeles, and Iceland.
As Just Mercy depicts, Bryan Stevenson worked tirelessly to make Walter McMillian the first person in Alabama history to be freed from death row, from a retrial that Stevenson worked hard to secure between 1988 through 1993, when Stevenson’s client was finally released from all charges. Unfortunately, when McMillian was freed from prison, the weight of his time on death row weighed heavily on him, as the film tragically notes toward the end credits. McMillian died in 2013, battling early on-set dementia. When he was in treatment for this disease, McMillian started to believe he was back on death row, as Stevenson wrote in his book, and it painted a sad and painful existence during Walter McMillian’s final few years in this world.
