Three Men and a Douche: Celebrity Tales of Quarantine Life

I’m not saying it’s either a good or a bad thing, but one thing that has come out of our quarantine life is a glimpse we’ve gotten into the mundane lives of celebrities when they are not attending red-carpet premieres or appearing in talk shows. “They’re just like us,” is not even a little bit true, because celebrities have the luxury right now of not worrying about their futures, or checking to see the unemployment compensation rates in their state, or obsessively checking to see how much “runway” they have in their bank accounts.

However, celebrities do share in common with a lot of other people the need to kill time, stave off boredom, and keep their kids occupied without playdates or the ability to interact with others. Matt Damon, for instance, may have found himself in the best possible situation, “stuck” reportedly with his family in a small Irish town where he was shooting a film when the pandemic broke out.

Damon has been in Dalkey (population 8,000) for weeks, but with four kids, a wife, and no pressing financial concerns, does it get much better?

Meanwhile, celebrity favorite of mine, Josh Charles (Sports Night, The Good Wife), is holed up in his home with small kids, and while his Twitter account shows the frustration of keeping kids occupied, Charles’ Instagram accounts illustrates that Charles is crushing it in the Dad department, though not so much in the facial hair department.

In the meantime, Ben McKenzie (and his wife Morena Baccarin) have a four-year-old daughter, and I can only hope that this is for her benefit.
