No Filter: Eclipses and the Stars Who Love Them

This week in No Filter, the sun and the moon did some crazy shit and all the celebrities we pay attention to responded accordingly! At least, most of them did. Also, some of our problematic faves got caught up in the latest nude photo leak (or whatever), which we’re not gonna write about here because it’s violating and gross! Know what isn’t violating and gross? Dorky eclipse glasses.


Stephanie Beatriz took some time out from looking really goodlooking to… nope, she multitasked.
The Quin cats know how to handle a once-in-a-lifetime eclipse, let me tell you.

There are two Jasika Nicoles and they’re both better at everything than twelve of you.

When you’re a cool sexy famous person like Cara Delevingne, you can swim with whale sharks that look suspiciously like one of my favorite Facebook stickers of all time:

Beth Ditto spent her eclipse time knitting adorably.

Nobody even told Stella Maxwell there even was an eclipse…

…while Chelsea Manning was the actual sun in the sky, so.

I guess ERW is upset that we’re still in a fight because she performed this very sweet rendition of “Edelweiss” and dedicated it to her son. I FORGIVE YOU.

Cameron Esposito and Rhea Butcher enjoy eclipsing responsibly.

Sarah Paulson and her costars (all playing different characters in Riese’s real life in this season of American Horror Story) went to a Cher concert and she fucking livestreamed it and nobody has ever wanted to watch anything less than I want to watch your Instagram livestream of a concert I’m not at… but I will forgive you this one time.

  1. Is that an inflatable black cat behind Mallory? Halloween decorations are out already? It’s August, people! Still summer! Calm down!

    • Yes they are, and I have some friends who are already making Halloween trinkets. Some, really can’t wait until it’s Fall(though to be far Summer ends in October out here in SoCal).

    • I find this whole meme childishly funny but also… I literally wouldn’t be able to pick her face out of a lineup.

      • Agreed. I felt just guilty enough about this to read her wikipedia page in the hopes that I would find her somehow fascinating and thus memorable. Still not sure…I think she might have an interesting accent, but hard to place?

  2. LOL stella maxwell’s face is like jack nicholson’s character’s name in the witches of eastwick. impossible to remember. therefore, she’s the devil.

  3. I really appreciate that there’s a Cher reference in this post itself and another (well, a tangential “Witches of Eastwick” one) in the comments.
