18 Hilariously Mean Burns from the Week of January 15, 2024
After the whirlwind success of Poor Things, the world has more Yorgos Lanthimos and Emma Stone collaborations to look forward to. Not only is Stone part of the star-studded cast for Lanthimos’ next film, Kinds of Kindness, but the Easy A actress joined the prolific director in his Grecian homeland to shoot a movie in secret a few months back. The undercover feature marks their fifth collaboration since 2018’s The Favourite, and yet, the people are still clamoring for more. While Lanthimos confirmed he’s continuing to develop the script for his adaptation of Ottessa Moshfegh’s sleeper hit My Year of Rest and Relaxation, Stone has been tight-lipped as to whether she will be starring in it.
As with most adaptations with a devout following, the timeline has already started fan-casting the project with many advocating for Red Scare podcast host (and brief Succession actress) Dasha Nekrasova to take on the lead role. Others, however, were quick to point out the character is described as “gorgeous” ad nauseam, which might rule Nekrasova out. Ouch!
Nekrasova, though, wasn’t alone in taking the brunt of the timeline’s mocking this week. Other hilarious burns included those about the rapper dressed for a BU frat party, someone who might want to reconsider her budget and the Republican presidential candidate seeing red.
