There are few things Hollywood Crush enjoys more than curling up with a juicy celebrity profile from one of our fave mags. Because while most stars are loathe to reveal details of their romantic entanglements during your average, run-of-the-mill interview, a splashy cover story is the perfect, high-profile opportunity to gush about Mr. or Miss Dreamboat. Or is it? If a few recent interviews are any indication, keeping mum might be a better M.O.
With their long lead times, magazine features run the risk of being not-so current by the time they hit newsstands, especially in La La Land where celebrities swap love interests faster than designer handbags. No one probably knows this better than Ashley Greene and Joe Jonas.
Just today, a Glamour interview with Ashley debuted in which she called then-BF Joe a "Superstud." Awkward since they've been broken up for a few weeks now. Joe also opened up this month about Ashley to Details in an interview released a day before rumors of their split surfaced. "It feels good. I think what works about it is she really puts my feelings first," he told the magazine about the "Twilight" star.
Perhaps Joe should have known better seeing as something very similar happened to him LESS THAN A YEAR AGO. The JoBro and his previous girlfriend Demi Lovato posed for an adorable Teen Vogue spread a mere 48 hours before they parted ways. When the August issue finally hit newsstands, the pair had been split for more than a month. In a follow-up interview, Joe mused about the unfortunate circumstances.
"It could have been better timing," he admitted to Teen Vogue. "But there's never really a good time for something like that."
Joe can take comfort knowing he's not the only celeb to gush about a special someone only to have his words come back to haunt him. In a 2009 interview with Glamour, Jessica Simpson sounded near prophetic when she told the magazine, "If this article comes out and we’re not together, I’d still love [Tony], and he’d still be a huge part of who I am today." Indeed, the duo broke up about a month before the issue debuted.
And then there's the infamous InStyle Weddings curse. Before the magazine folded in 2009, more than a few brides, including—most memorably—Courtney Thorne-Smith, appeared as blushing brides on the cover, only to have filed for divorce by the time the issue debuted. Talk about Wedding Bell Blues.
What do you think, Crushers? Should celebs keep mum about their personal lives? Or is the drama just too delicious?
