No Filter: Samira Wiley’s Birthday Smile Melts Your Heart

Welcome back to No Filter, your weekly investigation of the most fascinating celebrity Instagram stories and Hollywood gossip. This week, allegedly someone asked Kristen Stewart at a Coachella party if she was Soko’s girlfriend and she was like, “Yeah, dude.” This is monumental news!

Also, in case you were wondering, you will never have a love as grand and glorious as that which exists between Sarah Paulson and Holland Taylor:

It was Samira Wiley’s birthday this week and to celebrate she smiled this really cute smile for you.

If you ever run into Hari Nef on the street and you get tongue tied and don’t know what to talk about, here’s a gentle suggestion.

Just thought you could use this image of Jiz Lee posing on top of a car today.
I still don’t believe this cat is real.

Checking in on Ellen Page, and it turns out she’s taking you on a ROAD TRIP!!! You’re gonna look so cute posing in front of the Grand Canyon together.

  1. Do y’all know who Caroline Flack is? I follow her on snapchat and she has a cat that’s the same breed as Holiday and it also constantly sits like a human! So I guess that breed is just into being weird and sitting like people. And Caroline also refuses to believe that she has a real cat. Also, the cat’s name is Waffle, which is a pretty great name for a cat.
