Evan Rachel Wood broke up with Jamie Bell to spend more time with their baby

Alright, this story is already annoying the shit out of me. Evan Rachel Wood and husband Jamie Bell have called it quits, which is a shame but it happens. The pair just had a baby last July, and it turns out, that might have been the beginning of the end of their relationship since apparently Evan is spending more time with the baby than she is having sex with her husband. The nerve!

From People:

“Nothing dramatic happened. They are friends and will continue to parent their son together. They have been friends for years and are happier this way than being married,” the source says.

The couple welcomed a son last July, and he became the focus, the source adds. “Evan loves being a mom. After her son was born, he has been her No. 1 priority. The marriage always came in second. They have different goals for the future and want to pursue them separately.”

As for Wood’s romantic future, the source adds: “Evan is very edgy and adventurous and wants to find a partner that she can share that with.”

What’s with grown ass men not being able to handle not being the center of their partner’s world? Obviously that intimacy and everything is important and parents still need to spend time with each other aside from raising kids, working, etc, but it just seems kinda ridiculous to me. If he was as invested in parenting as she is, he would probably feel just as exhausted and use the baby to strengthen their bond? I dunno, to be fair, I haven’t given birth personally, but I feel like it’s generally understood that kids are the first priority – especially when they’re little.

Evan Rachel Wood Had Her Hipster Baby

Evan Rachel Wood and husband Jamie Bell welcomed their first child today, a baby boy, who will no doubt live up to his hipster potential. I kid because I love. Wood’s rep says (via People) the baby boy is “beautiful” and that “parents and baby are all doing well.”

This is fantastic news for Ms. Wood because it means she can finally give into her weed craving.

Other babies born this month include Jimmy Fallon’s daughter, Winnie Rose, and Will & Kate’s Seinfeld baby. PLAYDATES AHOY!

Congrats to the couple.

Gary Oldman, Willem Dafoe, Jamie Bell and ADRIEN BRODY (!) Walked in a Fashion Show

A couple of others did, too, like Emile Hirsch and Tim Roth, but that doesn’t really matter all that much to me, truth be told. Also, it wasn’t just any old fashion show – it was a fancy-schmancy fashion show for Prada. Yup. Prada. And in case you couldn’t guess it from the, ahem, get-up that my boy Adrien‘s wearing in the photo above, it was “English Gent”-themed.

Finally, guess who led the final walk? Nope, it wasn’t Gary Oldman, much as I love him. It was Adrien. God. This guy’s just so multi-faceted and talented and … I don’t know, DAPPER, right? He goes from hip-hopping from basketball game to basketball game with Lil Wayne to reciting the Best of the Notorious B.I.G.’s Poetry to scholars (without skipping a vulgar word, indeed), to hobnobbing it with some of the UK’s finest male actors on a runway for Prada. Could there be a hotter, more refined-yet-down-to-earth dude ALIVE?

Who looked the hottest?

Jamie Bell Is Hilarious And We Should All Love Him

A photo of Jamie Bell

Jamie Bell was Billy Elliot in Billy Elliot, in case you didn’t know. He was also in The Chumbscrubber and he was in the music video for Green Day’s “Wake Me Up When September Ends” (which I just realized also features Evan Rachel Wood, so excuse me for flailing). But now he’s in The Adventures of Tintin, which means that he’s getting interviews with publications like GQ, which means that he has a great platform to show the world how wonderful he is. Ready?

On gifts from fans: I’ve got lots of weird illustrations of me from Japanese fans. I also got a dead moth. [Pause] Which actually might be more of a threat than a present.

On superheroes: My favourite superhero is obviously Batman because he’s the sexiest.

How to impress ladies: Buy her flowers? Take her home on the weekend to meet your mother? No. Let’s cut to the primal – be good in the sack. [Slaps thighs] Have an understanding of what’s going on down there and have fun, awesome sex.

His favorite drink: I’ve always loved those Yazoo banana milkshakes. Alcoholic drink depends on what mood you’re in, doesn’t it? Absinthe does make the heart grow fonder.

And now for the best interview excerpt I’ve ever read in my whole entire life:

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
What’s the best penis I’ve ever seen?

No! Actually, what is the best penis you’ve ever seen?
[Collapses into laughterThat is a good question. The best piece of advice I ever received was “Don’t f*** your publicist.” Russell Crowe told me that. It’s probably a smart move. [Both of his publicists are now in the room, attempting to bring the interview to a close] No! It’s GQ!

What skill should every man have?
Skill? You know what I’m going to say. A man should have a good understanding of a vagina. He should be good at oral sex. On a woman.

You do realise you’ve got another publicist standing right behind you?
I don’t care. A skill a man should have? Making fires and pleasing a woman. In the vaginal area.

Man, Jamie Bell sure cares about vaginas, huh?  Can you dig it? Because I don’t know about you, but anybody who thinks important skills include “making fires and pleasing a women in the vaginal area” and who says things like “absinthe makes the heart grow fonder” deserves a pat on the back and a nod of appreciation.

Could you get into Jamie Bell here?
