No Filter: Samira Wiley And Lauren Morelli Make Some New Friends

Welcome back to No Filter, your one-stop shop for celebrity Instagram and the ever-churning rumor mill. This week, the world found out that Evan Rachel Wood is engaged to her bandmate and Kristen Stewart took Stella Maxwell to an amusement park. They didn’t look all that amused, if we’re being super real. If you’re looking for examples of love though, real love like you won’t ever find in your whole life, look no further than the precious adoration Holland Taylor has for Sarah Paulson (who won EVERY SINGLE TELEVISION AWARD):

Lauren Morelli really crushed it with the SAG Awards footage, including an Instagram story of the Stranger Things kids dancing with Samira Wiley and Lily Tomlin. It’s disappeared now, like all Instagram stories and most things that are good and pure in this world, but I’ll never forget that it happened.

My mom dressed me just like Abbi Jacobson’s mom dressed Abbi and somehow Abbi grew up to lead a productive life and have friends and (ALLEGEDLY*) date Carrie Brownstein, so this gives me hope.
* – Listen, it’s true, you’ll just have to trust me.

Brittani Nichols is an inspiration.
You know that Seinfeld episode where Elaine dates a guy who gets all somber and stares wistfully into the distance every time “Desperado” comes on? That’s Gaby Dunn now.
This photo just brings me such joy.

We’re not gonna get through 2017 without plenty of dogs in outfits.

Alright, I don’t know if Be is really good at setting the timer on her phone or if she brought someone with her to this hotel and was like, “Can you take a picture of me looking reflective on a bed?” but I’d really like to know.
This is 100% correct.

  1. Not gonna lie, for a minute I thought that the guy who played Will in Stranger Things was Ellen Page in that first pic.

  2. This column is starting more and more to be the one thing that lets me breathe a bit easier every time it appears

    ( not saying the rest of AS contempt isn’t super important and vital but dan fluff is radical too!)

  3. This article and all of these photos made me so happy!
