The Way They Were: Look Back at Sam Claflin and Laura Haddock's Cutest Moments Together
Sam Claflin and Laura Haddock's marriage is coming to an end after six years. The Hunger Games alum announced their split on Instagram in August writing, "Laura and I have decided to legally separate. We will move forward with nothing but love, friendship and a deep respect for one another, whilst we continue to raise our family together."

Interestingly enough, the two English stars actually met during an audition. Sam even called his agent afterwards saying, "I have just met the woman I want to marry." Following the audition, the two had another fortuitous encounter as they ran into each other on a subway the next morning. Turns out, they actually shared the same agent and lived only five minutes away from each other. From there, the rest was pretty much history.

The couple tied the knot in 2013 and eventually welcomed a son named Pip in December 2015 and a

Captain Marvel’s Gemma Chan Isn’t The First Actor To Play Two Different McU Roles

While we expected a more recognizable franchise to help kick off Phase 4 of the McU next year (alongside the standalone Black Widow) film, it looks like Marvel Studios is doubling down on The Eternals, which is set to build upon the cosmic side of the series. So far, we don’t know all that much about the upcoming project – plot details are being kept tightly under wraps – but Kevin Feige himself seems excited to have the opportunity to get moviegoers hyped about a relatively unknown group of characters.

At last month’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel pulled back the curtain on the film’s talented cast, which includes Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Salma Hayek, Brian Tyree Henry, Lauren Ridloff, Lia McHugh and Don Lee. Recently, however, we heard reports that Gemma Chan was looking to join the roster, too, and some of you might remember her appearance in Captain Marvel,

Transformers: The Last Knight may have led the nominations for the 38th Razzie Awards with nine nominations, but The Emjoi Movie came out with the most wins... or losses, depending on how you look at it.

Whether or not you agree that “The Emoji Movie” was the Worst Picture of 2017, it’s easy to single out the Razzies as the worst “awards” show. Routinely picking low-hanging fruit that’s already been panned rather than making even slightly bold choices, the 38-year-old institution “honored” the critically reviled “Emoji Movie” with a total of four prizes.

Also singled out were “The Mummy,” for which Tom Cruise was named Worst Actor, and “Fifty Shades Darker,” which was deemed the Worst Sequel, Rip-Off, or Remake. Darren Aronofsky’s “mother!” received three nominations but managed to avoid the dubious honor of actually winning. Full list of winners below:
