Typical internet. As soon as a celebrity break-up happens, it just HAS to go and blame someone for the split, and assume an affair is taking place while they're at it.

Lady Gaga and her fiancé Christian Carino have officially called off their engagement about five minutes ago (sob), and poor Bradley Cooper is taking some serious heat for it.

A Star Is Born fans are convinced that the pair are secretly in love, despite the fact that Bradley has been dating Irina Shayk since 2016, and has a child with her.

 We're absolutely devastated for Gaga, but her fans have been bombarding Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk's Instagram accounts for some strange reason.

The speculation that the Shallow singers are in love has increased since they performed an emotional duet at her Las Vegas Enigma show.

Lady Gaga's rep confirmed her break-up to People, and another source told them;

"It just didn’t work out. Relationships sometimes end. There's no dramatic story." See? No. Dramatic. Story. Did the rumours stop there online? Hell no.

The fans beg to differ; "I seriously hope Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are having an affair, not kidding," said one fan. Their chemistry in the award-winning film is palpable, but it's called ACTING, folks.

Fans have flooded Irina's Instagram with comments telling her to "let Bradley be with Lady Gaga", and "Stop letting Gaga near your man, it's embarrassing." Good lord… harsh much?

The memes, the comments, the MARRIAGE insinuations? We can't cope with the internet, stop the car we want to get out.

The two were in happy relationships when the movie came out and hit cinemas, yet fans assume their on-set acting is the reason for Gaga's break up MONTHS later.

"I have two words: Bradley. Cooper." We have two words: Internet. Cancelled.

We acknowledge that Bradley and Lady Gaga have a stunning relationship, but men and women can actually be just that; friends. Co-workers. Creative talents on the same set pretending to be lovers for a screen and entertainment purpose.

Please locate your chill people, and leave poor Irina Shayk out of this. Gaga has enough on her shoulders with a break-up, in private.

We just want them both to be happy…*weeps*

Bird Box has become one of the biggest movies of the last few years, with 80 MILLION people watching it on Netflix in the first month of its release.

It's safe to say pretty much the entire world has seen it, except for one lady, who is actually in the movie itself.

The iconic Sarah Paulson pairs up with her BFF Sandra Bullock for the flick following their Ocean's 8 collab, and Paulson plays Bullock's sister in the infamous apocalyptic horror.

During a recent appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Paulson explained that she actually never watches her own work, and hasn't done so since American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.

Colbert reminded her that she's potentially missed out on some incredible movies and TV shows, such as The Post, which was Oscar-nominated, but she maintains that she's never actually seen Bird Box.

“You didn’t see you in The Post?!” Colbert asked. “It’s such a brilliant, beautiful scene, you were so good.” Paulson then made Colbert act out the scene so she could see the impact.

Imagine being in a movie which sees the entire population die if they open their eyes, and she won't even take off the blindfold to watch the performance and check who survived in the end?

“It’s so exciting that the movie is resonating with people, and I hope that people find a way to continue to enjoy watching the movie," she said, about the #BirdBoxChallenge.

“But I really hope people would not try to re-enact the most dangerous parts of it. It is a movie, and you shouldn’t try it at home. We don’t want anything tragic to happen.” Sensible words from Sarah.

It's a shame she won't get to see Sandra fight her way through the film blindfolded, we wonder how she feels about all the memes which have been inspired by the flick

If you want to feel VERY old, this is the news story for you.

Do we remember Rachel Green's adorable baby Emma? The toddler was played by twins Noelle and Cali Sheldon 15 years ago, and they're all grown up now.

The pair posted a photograph to Instagram for their sweet sixteen, sharing a tribute of their younger selves and it's the cutest.

Noelle and her sister are looking happy and carefree at the Museum of Ice Cream; she captioned the nostalgic snap; “Happy birthday @cali.sheldon."

Cali also posted a photo of herself and her sister, writing; "My partner in crime since ’02… happy birthday noelle!" 

The twins celebrate a major milestone and have also landed a role in Jordan Peele's upcoming horror flick Us, starring Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong'o and Elisabeth Moss.

It's safe to say they haven't strayed far from acting, though a horror movie is certainly different to their silver screen baby debut.

Noelle posted the news to her Instagram alongside the film's trailer;

“The trailer for Us is out now! I put the link in my bio. So happy I got to be a part of this movie, it looks amazing and terrifying!” 

Friends ended back in 2004 and broke our hearts, but we all loved watching Emma grow up alongside her parents.

Ross and Rachel were played by Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer, and we can only hope that they've kept in touch with the twins.

Nowadays you're supposed to have your life sorted as soon as you exit the womb.

Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating but the pressure is on as a 20-odd-year-old to have your career path chosen, your relationship golden and your life stable.

So it was beyond refreshing when we had a chat with actor Simon Delaney, who said he didn't have his sh*t together until the age of 28.

Talking to SHEmazing, he explained all the different careers he wanted to pursue before he caught the acting bug.

"I don't think I had a clue until I was about 28 – I really hadn’t got a clue – I just kinda ambled and arsed my way through my teens and my twenties."

"I wanted to be a bus driver, I wanted to be a chef and then somehow I ended up as an actor…how did that work out?" he humbly questioned.

Although once Simon did forge the acting path, he did have a lot of aspirations for his career – and most of his dreams have come true.

"A lot of my wishes have come true, you know I always wished when I became an actor that I could appear on the West End and I have done that."

"I’ve worked in Hollywood, I have done movies, TV series – I’ve been very lucky, so I suppose most of my wishes have been granted."

Besides his career, Simon revealed that even in his twenties he knew he wanted to be a parent.

"I was lucky enough to meet Lisa…and two houses and four kids later, here we are. So my wishes were granted and I thank God every night.

"Every night when I am picking toys off the floor and wiping dirty arses, I thank god that my wishes came true," he joked- AWH, bless.

Given his good fortune, when One4all asked Simon to hop aboard their Christmas appeal to grant three lucky people their festive wishes, he didn't hesitate. 

Talking about the competition where One4all ask people around Ireland to submit their Christmas wishes, he said: "I think it’s a gorgeous campaign". 

Last year, people entered their wishes in their thousands and three lucky people were granted their wishes.

"This year they are doing the same and they have until November 27 to pop onto the One4all website to send in their Christmas wish. And you know what, Santa just might grant it," explained Simon.

Whether its reuniting with a long-distance loved one, making that special someone smile with an unforgettable yuletide surprise, or asking the love of your life to be yours forever, Simon and One4all want to hear from you.

So what are you waiting for? Go and fill out that form.

In case you've been living under a planet-sized rock, you just MIGHT have heard about Channing Tatum and Jessie J's new romance.

The pair appear to be exclusive, with Tatum making numerous appearances at the British singer's gigs, and was present at her London show last night where she emotionally revealed her infertility.

One thing which has been plaguing fans and speculators all over the internet is the uncanny resemblance between Jessie J and Channing Tatum's ex-wife of over ten years: Jenna Dewan.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Life & Style Weekly (@lifeandstyleweekly) on

The actress only just filed for divorce from Tatum last month, after six months of separation, and both actors appear to have well and truly moved on.

It has to be said that Dewan and Jessie J look RIDICULOUSLY alike, leading fans to conclude that Channing Tatum very clearly has a type.

Apart from being startlingly beautiful and both having names which begin with J, Jenna and Jessie both have similar face shapes, skin tones, fierce eyebrows and shoulder-length dark brown hair, so it's hard not to compare them.

After attending the Baby2Baby gala on Sunday night, one of Jenna Dewan's followers commented on her post:

“FIRST OF ALL…whenever I hear of the ‘striking resemblance’ w/ Jessie J and Jenna Dewan my only thoughts are ummmmm no…not even close, and I don't have a horse in the race but gf you are untouchable." 

"Just trying to spread positive vibes, keep doing you…to an absolute outsider from a small town do are doing it seemlessly."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Jenna Dewan (@jennadewan) on

The dancer and actress responded with her own comment on the matter: "Positive vibes all the way." Oh, there was a kiss emoji too, let's not forget that part.

She doesn't seem to be rising to the media frenzy surrounding her ex-husband's love life, or the doppelgänger claims between her and Jessie J.

However, while many assume that Dewan must be finding the media attention surrounding her divorce difficult, Jenna has a romance of her own. 

She has been happily dating Broadway star Steve Kazee for a few months now. We wish both couples all the happiness in the world.

Speaking at the Rome Film Festival, actor Cate Blanchett joined in the conversation about straight actors taking on the roles of gay characters.

Cate, who played the titular role in Todd Haynes' Carol, said that she was asked more questions about her sexuality than ever before when she took on the role of the lesbian character.

She explains that many interviewers had asked her or implied as to whether having a lesbian experience was needed to understand such a role.

Cate said that this goes against the whole point of acting, which is essentially pretending to be someone else. 

She said, ''it also speaks to something that I’m quite passionate about in storytelling generally, but in film specifically, is that film can be quite a literal medium.''

She continued, ''and I will fight to the death for the right to suspend disbelief and play roles beyond my experience. I think reality television and all that that entails had an extraordinary impact, a profound impact on the way we view the creation of character.''

Hollywood has been criticised for giving straight actors roles portraying LGBT characters in the past before and Cate believes that there is a problem with this. 

She explains, ''I think it provides a lot of opportunity, but the downside of it is that we now, particularly in America, I think, we expect and only expect people to make a profound connection to a character when it’s close to their experience.''

Cate hopes that more films exploring gay characters get the go-ahead as getting Carol made was not easy. 

She says that, ''the film, I think now would be made in a heartbeat, but eight years ago, it was a very difficult film to get up.''

She continued, ''two women, both of whom are of lesbian-ish persuasion in the 1950's, which is like ‘who wants to go and see that? Only 12-year-old boys go to movies.' Thank goodness we’re changing the demographic of the critics who write for Rotten Tomatoes.”

Gwan Cate, you tell 'em.

Has Cheryl Cole switched career paths?

The Girls Aloud singer was seen arriving in Dublin yesterday, according to Xposé.

The reason for her trip was to film a few scenes for the upcoming movie Four Girls and It, based on a Jacqueline Wilson’s children novel.

We are so excited to see the new movie also starring Russell Brand and Michael Caine.

via GIPHY

However, this is not Cheryl’s first appearance in a film. We all remember her cameo in What to Expect When You’re Expecting in 2012.

The film will follow the story of four children and a creature they meet on the beach named the Psammead.

This magical creature, voiced by Michael Caine, can grant wishes but the children must beware of the villain, Russel Brand, who tries to snatch the Psammead to use for himself.

Isn't Russell the perfect villain with his long, dark hair and his hot, 'bad guy' vibe?

The Times revealed that the Wexford coastline will double as Cornwall as the setting for the film.

Cheryl’s choice to do a cameo in the children’s film may be inspired by her son Bear, just 15 months old.

We were heartbroken to hear that the young mum recently split from Bear’s father, One Direction star Liam Payne.

The couple still plan on staying on good terms, so that they can focus on making their son’s happiness a priority.

So, keep your eyes peeled for Cheryl and her famous co-stars. We are excited to see if she continues acting!

Adele might be flat out working on her American tour right now, but that doesn’t mean the singing sensation will be taking a break anytime soon.

According to The Irish Mirror, the British hit-maker is reportedly planning to use her upcoming two week holiday to film scenes for a new Hollywood blockbuster.

The 28-year-old star is rumoured to have earned herself a small role in The Death and Life of John F Donovan, a movie which is to be directed by Xavier Dolan – who previously directed Adele’s Hello video – and will star Natalie Portman and Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington.

The Help actress Jessica Chastain and Oscar winner Susan Sarandon are also believed to be involved in the project.

A source told The Daily Star: “Adele doesn't want to be a full-time actress, but she enjoyed working with Dolan and he thought she could bring a lot to the screen.”

While Adele’s acting debut has yet to be confirmed by her team, we’re already excited by the possibility that she could be set for big screen glory.

Theatre is a notoriously tough industry to crack, but it seems you don't have to be the next Benedict Cumberbatch to make your mark on the stage. The creators of a new show debuting at this year's Dublin Theatre Festival are looking for help… from the men of Ireland.

THEATREclub need men from all walks of life to take part in their show, The Game, a new work they hope will redress misogyny by exploring sex work and prostitution in Ireland in a brand new way. 

The show runs from October 6 – 11 in the Cube at the Temple Bar's Project Arts Centre, an intimate venue with a capacity of 70 – 80 people. Each volunteer would only be required to give up a few hours of their time, with five new participants taking to the stage each evening to play "The Game."

The best part? There are no lines to learn, no script, and whatever happens happens. Each volunteer is "doing this to be part of an event – a symbolic act – that calls us all to consider, to think and to review," THEATREclub explains. The men involved won't have to discuss their own experiences, instead they'll be playing out the stories of other men. 

The subculture of prostitution in Ireland might seem like a heavy topic to base a play on, but many of THEATREclub's past works have dealt with similarly tough issues, like 2010's critically acclaimed Heroin, which examined the social history of the drug in this country, and 2013's History, telling the story of the residents of St Michael's Estate in Inchicore.

If you know someone who would be interested in getting involved or simply want to find out more, contact info@theatreclub.ie ASAP.

Tickets for The Game at the Dublin Theatre Festival are available to purchase here.
