I’m just going to get the whole “not even if he was the last man on earth” joke out of the way now. There. It’s done. So: “Last Man on Earth” star Will Forte and his co-star January Jones havereportedly broken up after five months of dating, according to Us Weekly. And while they were both at the Emmys Sunday night — with Forte making a hilarious cameo in Andy Samberg’s opening number — the split apparently happened last month. Apparently there were no awkward run-ins at the ceremony or after-parties, so there’s that, at least.
As for why they couldn’t make it work, it’s less to do with bridging the comedy and drama divide, apparently. A source spills that single mom Jones has been telling friends, “Relationships are a pain in the ass.” Sure, but Forte seems so chill. As a side note, isn’t it super awkward when you find out a couple are dating by hearing about their breakup?
