If he really loved her (or him), he wouldn't give up so quickly. Nobody forces him to look at the social media drivel either.

He was very funny in his early days but after that became known for being overpaid and contributing very little to whatever program he was on. As for his movies...no thanks.

I guess they could have added "Stop Hamas!" but that would be asking too much.

Go somewhere else then. Part of the charm is not having every single convenience of home spoon-fed you when traveling abroad.

I'll stick to streaming dramas, thank you. Movies are too much in love with themselves. Congrats to Michelle Yeoh though.
