Never has the facade of celebrity been more apparent than right now, during this, the third (fourth?) month (week? year?) of the coronavirus pandemic. Turns out that being beautiful and rich and good at playing make-believe isn't really a top priority for people gripping tenuously to their own sanity while being reduced to using non-name-brand notebook paper to wipe their buttholes.
And no one seems more aware of this than the celebrities themselves.
While some of the entertainment elite, like most of the late-night hosts -- and the now eternally panstless John Krasinski, who just decided to become a late-night host -- are still working, and others are spreading messages about hygiene and hanging in there, or fundraising, or helping people stay sober, some other members of the rich and famous are losing their goddamn minds on social media instead.
Guess which ones we're going to talk about today?
First up, Dame Judi Dench, perhaps best known for being Dame Judi Dench, keeps borrowing family members' social media accounts for the purposes of being adorable. In addition to a few seconds of her dancing with her grandson on TikTok ...
... she's also made a hand-washing video with a friend of hers, and then just kinda puttered around her garden in a plush dog hat telling us to keep laughing.
Which, secretly, is what we all assumed she did anyway, right?
Everyone's favorite Witcher, Henry Cavill, also seems to be handling things pretty well, spending most of his free time in the kitchen -- although he is worryingly appending the word "isolation" to everything he bakes.
