Lily Collins Loses It After ‘Emily in Paris’ Billboard Is Defaced to Make Her Look Like Demonic Clown — Photo

A defaced ‘Emily in Paris’ billboard caught the attention of star Lily Collins and her husband, who hilariously noticed the graffiti while on a walk in NYC.

Lily Collins, 32, was a good sport after coming across an Emily in Paris billboard that was defaced in New York City. The actress took to Instagram on Sunday, January 2 to show her and husband Charlie McDowell‘s hilarious reactions to the billboard, which featured pink paint drawn on Emily Cooper, the twenty-something marketing executive from Chicago that Lily plays in the hit Netflix series. Lily’s character went from looking gorgeous to now sporting a demonic clown look — but Lily took the whole thing in stride.

“I can’t say I love the new look, Em. But A for effort…,” Lily captioned her IG post, which featured a video and photo of her and Charlie’s reactions to the altered image. The video showed Charlie, 38, casually walking down the street of the Big Apple, only to come across the billboard, which startled the director and caused him to run in the opposite direction. In the next slide, Lily hilariously posed with the Emily In Paris billboard. The Emmy-nominated actress made a shocked expression while putting her hands up in the air for the image.

Lily’s followers were thoroughly amused by her post. Her co-star Ashley Park, 30, who plays Mindy Chen, Emily’s first friend in Paris, commented, “She’s a class act everyone 👏.” Charlie’s mother, actress Mary Steenburgen, 68, also joined in on the comments section to laugh over the whole ordeal involving her new daughter-in-law.

Season 2 of Emily in Paris premiered on December 22. The new season also stars Lucas Bravo as Gabriel, Camille Razat as Camille, William Abadie as Antoine Lambert, Samuel Arnold as Julien, Bruno Gouery as Luc, and Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu as Sylvie Grateau. The show takes place in Paris, obviously, with filming also having occurred in Villefranche-sur-Mer, a fishing village on the French Riviera.

Emily in Paris is created by Darren Star, who also created Sex & the City. That’s made Lily want an epic crossover to occur between characters from both shows, including Sarah Jessica Parker‘s Carrie Bradshaw. “I feel like maybe that needs to happen,” Lily told Variety. “I might tell Darren about that. She could be like an apparition. Emily walks by, and there’s a reflection in a window, and she looks in, but she sees Carrie. Then it goes back and it’s her, and she’s like, ‘What?’ I think that’d be kind of great.”

SpaceWalk: A Spectacular Rollercoaster-Esque Staircase Loops Through a South Korean Park

Towering 70-meters above ground at its highest point, “SpaceWalk” is the latest undulating sculpture by Hamburg-based artists Heike Mutter and Ulrich Genth. The monumental staircase winds in loops and elevations similar to that of a rollercoaster throughout Hwanho Park in Pohang, South Korea, and is almost entirely accessible for pedestrians except for the innermost circuit. It’s the largest contemporary public sculpture ever installed in the country.

A follow-up to the pair’s 2011 project “Tiger & Turtle – Magic Mountain” in Duisburg, Germany, “SpaceWalk” is built of galvanized and stainless steels atop a cement foundation and embedded rows of LED lights. “At night in particular, the brightly-illuminated walkway appears like a sigil drawn in the sky, appearing to represent different things depending on where one is standing,” Mutter and Genth say. “Thus, the sculpture also references local mythology and a tradition of sky-gazing and also makes playful use of relativity.”

Pedestrians enter the work at a central staircase, which breaks into two paths: one gently sloped walkway leads to a view of Yeongil Bay and the surrounding city, while the other is a steeper climb through a helix. Both are designed to mimic an otherworldly experience. “The title ‘SpaceWalk’ is taken from the terminology of outer space missions. It describes the act of exiting the space vehicle in the weightlessness of outer space. More literally, ‘SpaceWalk’ can be understood to mean ‘a walk through space,'” they say.

Archeologists Unearth a Roman Glass Bowl Dating Back 2,000 Years in Pristine Condition

January 27, 2022

Sitting a few miles from the German border, Nijmegen is the oldest city in The Netherlands, and after a recent archeological dig, it’s also the site that unearthed a stunningly preserved bowl made of blue glass. The pristine finding, which is estimated to be about 2,000 years old, is from the agricultural Bataven settlement that once populated the region. Featuring diagonal ridges, the translucent vessel was made by pouring molten glass into a mold, sculpting the stripes while the material was liquid, and using metal oxide to produce the vibrant blue. Archeologists uncovered it without a single chip or crack.

Around the time the bowl was procured, Nijmegen was an early Roman military camp and later, the first to be named a municipium, or Roman city. Archeologist Pepjin van de Geer, who led the excavation, told the De Stentor that while it’s possible the vessel was created in a German glass workshop in cities like Cologne or Xanten, it’s also likely that the Batavians traded cattle hides to procure it. In addition to the piece, van de Geer’s team has also uncovered human bones, pitchers, cups, and other precious goods like jewelry, which indicates the site was once a burial ground.
