You may remember Julia Stiles from such influential, groundbreaking films as “10 Things I Hate About You” or “Save the Last Dance.” She was also in some of those Bourne movies, but I like to remember her when she was at her prime — as a modern day so-called shrew making out with Heath Ledger; or as a ballet dancer who chooses hip-hop and interracial love over weekly therapy and hanging out with Kerry Washington.
Anyway, Stiles is 36-years-old now. My, how time flies! Oh, and she’s got a gut full of baby. That’s right: She’s pregnant!
People broke the news first, reporting that Stiles and her fiancé, Preston J. Cook, will welcome their first child later this year.
The couple met on the set of the 2015 film “Go with Me,” where Cook worked as a camera assistant. Also? They’ve been engaged since Christmas Eve 2015 and they’re like, in no rush to get married or whatever.
“I’m not getting a ton of marital advice,” Stiles told People last year. “We’re really slow on the wedding planning so I haven’t really been soliciting advice. Somebody told me about radical empathy, but I'm still trying to figure out what that means.” Cool, Stiles! I’m still trying to figure out what it is you are even talking about!
The actress is currently promoting “Riviera” and cradling her bump all over England, as if she were a bloated Halle Berry who just ate a very large meal. Fun!
Once again, bravo to those citizens brave enough to have a baby under Trump’s rule. So brave. Couldn’t be me!
