TV Couples That Turned Into Real Couples

It must be extremely easy for actors to become couples two young, wealthy, talented and pretty people, who will understand each other’s craft, they can only be the perfect partner for each other. These famous TV couples could not keep the relationship simply on screen and started to pursue things in the real world, to varied degrees of success.

The first couple I will talk about is Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, who played Jon Snow and Ygritte in Game of Thrones. They first met each other on set in Iceland, where sparks instantly began to fly. Kit is even quoted as saying “If you’re already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it’s becomes very easy to fall in love.” Showing their on-screen chemistry to be extremely real, and though Rose would meet her demise in the show, the couple decided to tie the knot in 2018 and currently remain as the flag bearers for all TV couples.

The next couple could not find as much success as Kit and Rose, being Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki, it is not actually even common knowledge that they dated for a while. Meeting on set of The Big Bang Theory, the two found their on-screen chemistry worked just as well in the real world for a while dating from 2007 to 2009. Though their TV counterparts found each other to be the one eventually getting married, Kaley and Johnny did not find as much success in the real world with 2009 being the end of the line for the pair. The couple do say that they have very much remained good friends, and they still remain as married co-stars on the show.

Finally, is a classic TV couple being that of Michael Kelso and Jackie Burkhart, who were played by Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher respectively. The couple met on The 70s Show at the young age of 14, with their couples first on-screen kiss actually being their first ever kiss. The couple have never really looked back from this early experience of love, with the couple marrying in 2014 and now have a young baby daughter. The pair are an example of the longevity that being a TV couple can bring, allowing for early building blocks of a stable relationship.

The pursuit of acting can be a lonely profession, there is not any time to really date, so by meeting the love of your life at work it can certainly make your whole life a lot easier.

The Highest Paid Actors in 2020

As we enter into the new decade, not much has changed in regard to the earnings of the actors at the top echelons of the entertainment industry. Dwane “The Rock” Johnson, who was the second highest paid actor in 2018, has topped the current annual Forbes list of highest paid actors for 2019, making him the best paid actor going into 2020.

Johnson is of course best known for the seemingly never ending Fast and Furious franchise, and his latest film, “Hobbs and Shaw”, was a spin-off from that cinematic cash-cow. He earned $89.4 million between June of 2018 and June of 2019, firmly placing him in first place for highest paid actors going into 2020.

Unsurprisingly, actors from the Marvel universe have dominated the rest of the list. Chris Hemsworth, who played Thor in both “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Endgame,” came in second, earning $76.4 million. He was followed by Robert Downey Jr in third, who earned $66 million for his role as Iron Man in the same films. Chris Evans (Captain America) and Paul Rudd (Ant-man) also featured further down.

In fourth place is Akshay Kumar, a Bollywood actor who earned $65 million over the course of the year – just $1 million less than Robert Downey Jr. Kumars latest film was “Mission Mangal”, which passed a Bollywood box-office milestone grossing over 1 billion Indian rupees (or $14 million).

A perhaps more familiar face took the number five spot – Jackie Chan. He earned a total of $58 million for his roles in movies “The Knight of Shadows: Between Yin and Yang” and “Journey to China: Mystery of the Iron Mask,” which was recently in theatres in China.

Adam Sandler and Bradley Cooper were actually tied for the number six spot, with both actors earning $57 million over the year. Cooper earned about 10% of his $57 million for voicing Rocket Raccoon in Avengers, while he earned the majority of it for “A Star is Born”, which he directed and starred in along with Lady Gaga. Adam Sandler on the other hand cracked the top 10 due to his Netflix deal, which gave him multiple movie roles, all of which being at least reasonably popular. One of them – “Murder Mystery” – was watched by 73 million households according to Netflix.

Chris Evans and Paul Rudd took the 8th and 9th spots respectively, for their roles in Avengers as previously mentioned, while Will Smith came in at 10th earning $35 million.

How to be a Drag Queen (Step by Step)

Albeit against the stereotype; drag isn’t just exclusively for gay men. Any man can perform drag and unleash their effeminacy, be it for comedic effect, entertainment or simply they just want to. This is a step by step guide on how to successfully pull off being a drag queen.

  1. Decide whether to shave your facial hair and remove about all your hair or not. Not all drag queens do this, and this is referred to as “bear drag”. You shouldn’t feel pressured to reach for the hair removal cream if you don’t want to.
  2. Glam up with make-up. Usually, drag queens pamper their faces with as much make up as possible. Remember false eyelashes and outrages colours. Practice is key, watch YouTube tutorials, magazines et cetera to grasp this skill. Your drag queen is expressing the inner effeminacy in you so in case your persona changes, you don’t want to rely on another person’s vision to hamper your self-expression.
  3. Do you want to replicate Cher and her diva persona, or the gothic image of Siousxie Sioux? While make-up application holds a key role, one can also argue the outfit must match. Keep to dresses and skirts as these hides what lies underneath, also don’t go mad with spending, dresses can get expensive. Start of with a few inexpensive dresses or one which you can afford. Also, high heels are a must, it creates a female figure and makes you stand out more. And perhaps a gaff to help hide what’s underneath.
  4. Last to look the part is the wig, get a good one that’ll withstand time and can take a beating when it comes to styling. Wigs are what you pay for, if you want to look the part you have to splash out.

If you follow this guide, you will no doubt be able to look the part for whatever you want to do in drag; be it performance or for a hobby while respecting the craft of drag and becoming your own drag queen. 

Genius Storage Ideas to Keep your Home Organized

We can all be a bit unorganized, especially if we’ve just moved somewhere new and have to re-organize everything we own. Here’s a short list of genius ways to store things in a way that you might not have thought of.

1. Keep Your Extension Cord in a Shoe Box


This would involve cutting holes for your various leads and charges, but would get rid of the familiar clutter of wires that inevitably come with using an extension cord.

2.Use the Lid of a Lotion Bottle to Hold Items on Charge High off the Ground

If you are charging your phone from a plug that is a few feet off the ground and you don’t have a table or such in place, then simply attaching a large lid (like that from a bottle of lotion) to the wall to place your phone into is a brilliant fix.

3. Organize your Plates/pans with a Pegboard.

The pegs would keep the plates upright, and while such a pegboard would be difficult to find in stores, building one would be extremely easy.

4. Store Necklaces on a Hanger

Rather than have jewelry like necklaces all tangled up in a drawer, simply attach some eye screws to a clothes hanger and hang each of them on to it. This would look very pretty and prevent the loss of important necklaces and such.

5. Use a Magazine Holder for Beauty Items (i.e. hair straighteners)

Everyone has magazine holders lying round they don’t use, but they would be perfect for storing any number of beauty items, particularly larger things like curling irons and hair straighteners.

6. Magnetize Items to a Magnet Board

This would mean getting a metal plate and using magnets to attach whatever items you want to a place from which you can readily grab them from when needed. This would be especially easy for metal makeup items.  


9 Things That Tidy People Absolutely Can’t Stand

Anyone who has lived with someone who prides themselves on cleanliness should know that being tidy is not just a preference but a way of life.

  • Bugs– When someone finds bugs in their house, they can not help but blame themselves, but when a tidy person see`s a bug you can see the life leave them. There whole life purpose of being tidy has been broken.
  • Eggshells back in the box– This one is just basic common sense but still it is far too common, a broken egg shell is meant for the bin, do not just put rubbish back in the box.
  • When Someone Claims to Also be Tidy– For a tidy person this cannot be annoying especially when they have no clue of tidiness. The self-congratulatory way people will claim to be tidy when they just do not have a clue, an extra special point for roommates who think they are tidy when they are simply tidying their own mess that they have left for days.
  • Not Sweeping After Cleaning– You can clean all you like, but if you leave all your crumbs after cooking; then that is still mess, and those crumbs will only infuriate a tidy person.
  • Dirty Dishes in the Sink– You have gone as far to recognise your dishes are dirty, then what use is it simply finding a new place to stack them in the sink, you have recognised they are dirty so why not clean them.
  • Chairs not Tucked in- If you think this is insignificant then you are part of the problem, just tuck your chair in- what use is it in the middle of the room.
  • Trying to Stuff as Much Rubbish as Possible Into the bin– The bin is not a game of Jenga once it is full it is full, if you need to stuff your rubbish into it then it is perhaps time to just take it out.
  • Crumbs in the Butter- This one is just infuriating, do not leave your old excess crumbs in the butter, this just contaminates the tidy persons future toast.
  • Putting the Full bin Bags Next to the bin– So you have finally decided to recognise the bin is full and it needs replaced, well done. Once you have recognised this fact do not just place the full bin bag next to the bin. You are just leaving rubbish in your kitchen, it does not matter if it is not in the bin.
