No, Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams Aren’t Married

Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams are best friends, and pretty much have been since they took on the roles of Sansa and Arya Stark on Game of Thrones. Their fast friendship has often led people to wonder if they're romantically involved. The truth is they're not, but Turner understands why people think that. "People do think that we're a couple, sometimes," Turner says in the WIRED Autocomplete Interview above. "It's beautiful. It's the purest friendship I've ever had in my life." So, for whoever asked the internet if Turner and Williams are married, we're sorry if you're disappointed with that answer. And if you're wondering who Turner is married to, it's Joe Jonas. They got hitched last month. But even …

#YouKnowMe Is Hashtag Activism at Its Most Galvanizing

When you talk about abortion in America, someone’s bound to invoke the Shame Nun. She lines the streets outside Planned Parenthoods and floods outspoken women’s Twitter accounts with hate, but mostly she lives inside people’s heads, clanging her bell so long and loud that many women forget they’re not walking down unfriendly streets naked and alone. Still, it often feels that way, especially this week, after Alabama’s governor signed a near-total abortion ban. It leaves no exceptions for rape or incest and makes performing an abortion punishable by life in prison. In reality, one in four American women have an abortion before they turn 45. You are constantly in their company, and actress and activist Busy Phillips wants you to …

Donald Glover, Adidas, Nike, and the Fight for Cool

Recently, in a group chat, I expressed excitement over an unlikely piece of work: a new short film from Adidas. The sportswear corporation, which now also counts Beyoncé as a "creative partner," had teamed up with Donald Glover to make a series of vignettes featuring him and the actress Mo'Nique trading comic tête-à-têtes. Directed by longtime collaborator Ibra Ake, the film embodies Glover's typical patchwork: It's wonky, narratively indeterminate, and crammed with wit and the occasional inside joke.

Netflix’s New Comedy Lunatics Is Dizzying, Tone-Deaf

Watching Netflix’s latest stab at edgy comedy, Lunatics, is like scrolling through Instagram at 3 am. Fragments of lives flicker by—self-aggrandizing, specific, bizarre, sometimes obscene. Pretty soon, they all start looking fundamentally, headspinningly the same. We are, the show seems to be suggesting, the many faces of Chris Lilley. The new Netflix comedy is strikingly similar to the Australian comedian’s previous work. Like the popular Summer Heights High (and its spinoffs, Ja’mie: Private School Girl and Jonah from Tonga, which was pulled from the air in 2017 for being racist), Lunatics is a mockumentary following a bevy of characters all played by Lilley. In place of unseemly students and teachers, the characters are a celebrity pet psychic, a boy Instagrammer, …
