People Don’t Really Care About Celebs As Much in the Covid Era

Suddenly…celebrities have become a lot less relevant in the age of COVID-19. If you follow this blog, you might have noticed that while it once had a heavy dose of daily celebrity news, that type of coverage has slowed to a trickle.

Writer Jade Hayden at Her.ie took a more cynical and harsh approach, writing:

The Covid-19 outbreak has changed the way we consume news.

Instead of living our lives and simply reacting when something bad happens, we are consistently waiting for the bad thing to happen…

In a not dissimilar way, people have changed the way they engage with celebrity news too. Or rather, they haven’t really been engaging with it at all.

Where we once stood impatiently waiting for the Kardashians, the royals…to give their ever relevant thoughts on world events, suddenly the uninformed opinion of a celebrity doesn’t really matter much anymore.

In the same way people criticized Sam Smith for sharing their crying during isolation video, many questioned why Ellen DeGeneres was complaining about being bored on the grounds of her $27 million home.

They roasted every single person who lent their voice to that awful Gal GadotImagine“video. They scrolled on by when Ariana Grande was Zoom-ing her management team.

Right now, nobody cares. There are more pressing things to worry about.

Suddenly, a celebrity’s two cents isn’t all that important (unless they’re donating it to charity, of course).

I wouldn’t go that far but as I wrote last December, our culture and society have already been gravitating away from the most bump obsessive news. From the nude celebrity magazine covers to the overpriced first baby covers, go check out that post HERE now! 

Gal Gadot Talks Her Wonder Woman Bump In Rolling Stones

Actress Gal Gadot covers this month’s edition of Rolling Stone magazine and inside, she talks once again about having to hide her baby bump while filming her hit summer blockbuster, Wonder Woman.

The former beauty pageant queen shared a commonly shared anecdote about the funny lengths the film’s technical team put her through to hide her pregnant belly when she was expecting her now 5-month-ol daughter Maya.

“We cut open the costume and had this green screen on my stomach,” revealed Gaeltacht, who previously served in the Israeli military before striking it big as an actress. “It was funny as hell—Wonder Woman with a bump.”

 

Gadot will reprise her role on the upcoming film, The Justice League  with Ben Affleck as “Batman“, Ezra Miller as “The Flash and Jason Momoa as “Aquaman”, and others.

The actress, 32, and husband Yaron Versano are also parents to 5-year-old daughter Alma.

Olympic Athlete Alysia Montano Competes Again Thru Pregnancy

Championship middle distance runner Alysia Montano isn’t letting pregnancy get in the way of her drive to compete.

The athlete ran in the 800 meter distance race at the US Track and Field Outdoor Championships in Sacramento this past weekend whilst 5-months pregnant.

The Olympic athlete said she was inspired after watching Wonder Woman.

 

“When I found out Gal Gadot filmed half the movie five-months pregnant, I said, ‘I for sure am signing up for USA nationals‘,” she said.

Physicians recommend that pregnant women continue with their regular workout regimens if they feel comfortable doing so, and if they keep their heart rate at a certain level.

Montano has been getting a lot of attention again. She recently celebrated her decision on her Instagram with photos of her journey.

“My mission as a mother, as a daughter, as a sister, as a friend, and as a human is to always fight for good and the empowerment of others.” she captioned the photo. “I hope that one day my children can look at the world through a lens filled with kindness, compassion, hope, empowerment and purpose. I hope when my children think of me in their pursuits they might see me as an example of strength and not only think “Strong like Mom”, but perhaps they may see their abilities and think “Stronger THAN Mom”. #motivationmonday#LetsDoThisForTheseBabies

But this is not the first time Montano has competed while pregnant so this is not a big stretch for her.

In 2014, Montana shocked, awed and inspired many when she competed then while 8 months pregnant.  She ended up finishing just 35 seconds shy of her personal record while 34 weeks pregnant with her first child.

Everyone in the stand rose to their feet watching her compete.

“This is what it looks like to be a professional athlete as a woman and still continuing on in your career (while starting a family),” she said at the time.”I wanted to celebrate where I’m at, celebrate: oh my gosh, I made it 34 weeks and I’ve been able to stay fit and healthy and have an uncomplicated pregnancy.”

She recalls all the accolades.

“(In 2014) women let me know that my journey and my story had inspired them in so many different ways,” the 31-year-old was quoted as saying.

“I think there’s something about coming out to any venue, not really expecting to win, but just going along with the journey and seeing what comes out of it. And that’s the most beautiful part for me, being a track and field athlete, the platform that I have, I feel so responsible to be a representative of people who don’t have the same platform, don’t have the same voice that I do.”

And her daughter turned out fine and super cute to boot!

Gal Gadot Re-shot ‘Wonder Woman’ Stunt Scenes While 5 Months Preggers

thumb-1920-701995

So we already know by now that Serena Williams won the Australian Open in her early months of her pregnancy.

How about Gal Gadot, the actress who plays Wonder Woman in the upcoming film? She was 5 months pregnant when she returned to the studio to re-shoot some of her scenes, multiple sites are reporting.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Gadot said the close up shots were easy but when it came to covering up her belly, producers had to be creative because visually, it was obvious, and impossible to hide behind a shield.

The solution? Green fabric over Gadot’s stomach so that her baby bump could be edited out in post-editing.

“On close-up I looked very much like Wonder Woman,” Gadot said. “On wide shots I looked very funny, like Wonder Woman pregnant with Kermit the Frog.”

Funny!

The much anticipated movie will be released this June 2.
