Cast your minds back to 2015 when the best Friends rumour of them all (bar the reboot) took Twitter by storm. Could Matthew Perry and Courteney Cox aka Chandler and Monica be dating IRL?

\r\n\r\n

 

\r\n\r\n

Of course, that rumour turned out to be largely based on a picture of the pair that had been taken 10 years earlier. Reps also further crushed our dreams of a real-life romance when they said there was zero truth to them.

\r\n\r\n

 

\r\n\r\n

But, while the friends definitely aren't dating and may never have, reports suggest Matthew has had a thing for Courtney pretty much from the get go.

\r\n\r\n

 

\r\n\r\n

According to US Weekly, the actor is \"in love\" with his co-star and former on-screen wife. Say what now?

\r\n\r\n

 

\r\n\r\n

\"Matthew’s always been in love with her,\" they said. \"Matthew has never fully been able to get over her.\" Whether the feeling was mutual we'll sadly never know.

\r\n\r\n

 

\r\n\r\n

Courteney is currently in a relationship with Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid, while Matthew is thought to be single after splitting from Mean Girls actress Lizzy Caplan in 2012 after six years together.

\r\n\r\n

 

\r\n\r\n

The Chandler/Monica bombshell comes a week after the pair enjoyed a mini reunion. Alongside a selfie of them with that LA glow, Courteney wrote \"Guess who I had lunch with today....I KNOW!! Could I BE any happier? #realfriends\", punning on some of the show's most infamous catchphrases.

\r\n\r\n

 

\r\n\r\n

Their fellow Friends cast members rushed to comment on the post, with new Instagrammer Jennifer Aniston saying: \"MATTY!! ️ I LOVE YOU, GUYS\". Lisa Kudrow followed: \"Lucky lucky. #beautifulpeople.\"

A source tells Us Weekly, \"Meghan feels free. She has never been happier. She’s happy to be out of London. She was surprised at how quickly everything happened.\" Never been happier, you guys!!!\r\n\r\nThat said, it does seem as though Harry still has some mixed emotions about stepping back from royal life. In a speech earlier this week he opened up about the change, saying:\r\n\r\nOur hope was to continue serving the Queen, the Commonwealth, and my military associations, but without public funding. Unfortunately, that wasn't possible. I've accepted this, knowing that it doesn't change who I am or how committed I am. But I hope that helps you understand what it had to come to, that I would step my family back from all I have ever known, to take a step forward into what I hope can be a more peaceful life.\r\n\r\nHopefully, Meghan and Harry get what they're looking for from this transition!\r\n","type":"story","field_meta_title":null,"field_meta_description":null,"field_meta_keyword":null,"image":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-01/Screenshot%202020-01-26%20at%201.12.14%20AM.png?93hd13WXVq_YNAuAt1mZnrKqdf1gE9M6","field_editory_by":null,"path":"/celebrity/features/a19456/meghan-markle-feels-free-and-has-never-been-happier-after-her-exit-royal","created":"26 January 2020 ","time_created":"2020-01-26T11:00:00+05:30","field_section":"Celebrity","field_section_url":"/celebrity","field_content_type":"Features","notes":"http://www.cosmopolitan.com/entertainment/celebs/a30662067/meghan-markle-feels-free-after-step-down-royal-family/","notes_syn":"Cosmopolitan","userData_node":null,"userData":null,"field_first_name":null,"authorpath":null,"userPicUrl":null},{"nid":"19453","title":"Please Allow Us to Explain Why the “Dolly Parton Challenge” Is All Over Your Instagram Feed","field_dek":"From Priyanka Chopra to Karan Johar and Ellen DeGeneres, errrybody is doing it!\r\n","modified":"2020-01-25 11:50:14","status":"1","field_full_dek":"It seems like every day, there’s a brand-new challenge going viral on social media.

LinkedIn Dolly looked super profesh in a fitted, checked blazer, while Tinder Dolly was dressed up in a super-sexy Playboy costume. “Get you a woman who can do it all,” she captioned the post, which couldn’t fit the bill better if she tried. \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nView this post on Instagram\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nGet you a woman who can do it all 😉\r\n\r\nA post shared by Dolly Parton (@dollyparton) on Jan 21, 2020 at 10:02am PST\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nNow, since errrybody loves Dolly, celebrities in America (even Cosmo US) joined in, making the challenge go viral.

I mean thank GOD, because a lot of Hollywood's golden couples have called it quits, and I was running out of people to ship together. But thanks to Brad and Jen's epic hand-holding moment during Sunday's Screen Actors Guild Awards, I don't think that will be a problem for me (or anyone else), anytime soon.\r\n\r\nContinuing the narrative of Brad and Jen Please Get Back Together 2020 is a juicy new tidbit courtesy of Entertainment Tonight, whose source claims that Brad has made a point to tell Jennifer that he's sorry for the slip-ups he made while they were together. Since then, Brad and Jen have apparently put that drama in the past...which is why their \"friendship\" is thriving right now!\r\n\r\n\"Brad is completely sober now and is in such a different place than he was when they were together,\" the source said. \"Brad is truly an introspective guy who has worked hard on himself. He has apologized to her for many things he felt were his issues in their relationship. He truly takes ownership of his mistakes and that has changed their relationship with each other today. They both have moved on.\"\r\n\r\nNow, Brad and Jen's relationship has grown significantly ever since they both ended their marriages—Brad with his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie, and Jennifer with her ex-husband, Justin Theroux. \"Right now they just love and adore each other and have been much closer friends since their divorces,\" a second source told ET of Jen and Brad. \"They have a very mature relationship that has evolved over time because they both have experienced marriages that didn’t work out.\"\r\n\r\nWelp, if ya need me...I will be spiraling over \"they just love and adore each other\" and re-lighting my Brad and Jen reconciliation prayer circle candles for the millionth time.

She says, \"I feel people are getting extremely conscious of their health, their fitness regime and diet. Everyone is not only trying to look good but also feel good and healthy. As the awareness of healthy living has increased, I find that more people are focusing on themselves, regardless of how busy their schedule is. Most people are trying to find that little time in the day to squeeze in a workout, and eating healthy meals.\"\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nSo, here's what her own fitness regime entails:\r\n\r\nCosmo: With your hectic travel schedule, how do you maintain a fitness regime?\r\n\r\nNamrata Purohit: Regardless of wherever I am, for me, work out is a must. If I am visiting a city I usually book multiple fitness classes. If I am in a remote location, I do opt for more outdoor activities as well as some bodyweight exercises. Waking up early is the key to fit all my activities in.\r\n\r\nCosmo: Please share a few exercises that those with busy travel schedules can include in their workout.\r\n\r\nNP: No matter where you are it is always easy to squeeze in a walk or a jog if nothing else. There are also multiple bodyweight exercises and even cardiovascular based exercises that one can do in their room. Jumping jacks, high knees, skipping are some cardiovascular exercises, push-ups, ab preps, obliques, planks, squats, lunges, hip lifts, side-lying leg raises are some examples of bodyweight exercises.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nCosmo: Do you think there are some beauty benefits to working out?\r\n\r\nNP: Working out improves blood circulation which improves the health of the skin. Regular exercise improves the circulatory and respiratory system, improving oxygenation and overall health of the body. Working out also helps reduce stress, which in return helps improve the health of your body, skin, and hair. \r\n\r\nCosmo: It is said that 70 per cent, diet 30 per cent exercise. Do you agree? \r\n\r\nNP: Diet and exercise are both extremely important and go hand in hand if you want to be fit and healthy. Just by following a nutritious plan you can not only look healthy but feel clean too but exercising is important if you want to be fit, which includes being strong, flexible, having good endurance, balance etc.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nCosmo: Do tell us about your diet- are there any do's and don'ts that you follow.\r\n\r\nNP: I eat 3 main meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner and 2 small meals in between. I start with a hearty breakfast and end with a light dinner. I usually try to complete my dinner before 7-7:30 pm. \r\n\r\nCosmo: Can you tell us 5 important tweaks that can be made to our diet to make sure that our workout gains show up?\r\n\r\nNP: - Eat enough not less\r\n\r\n- Drink enough water\r\n\r\n- Don't skip meals \r\n\r\n- Eat at the right time\r\n\r\n- Make sure you are getting all the required nutrients\r\n\r\n \r\n","type":"story","field_meta_title":null,"field_meta_description":"cosmo, cosmo india, cosmopolitan india, cosmo.in, Namrata Purohit, namrata purohit, celebrity trainers, bollywood fitness, fitness regime, bollywood pilates, malaika arora fitness, malaika arora khan, kareena kapoor fitness, kareena kapoor khan, celebrity fitness routines, yoga excercises, bollywood yoga, janhvi kapoor, janhvi excercises, kareena excercises, celebrity excercises, celebrity diet, weight loss plan, celebrity weight loss, belly fat, flat stomach, thigh gap diet","field_meta_keyword":"cosmo, cosmo india, cosmopolitan india, cosmo.in, Namrata Purohit, namrata purohit, celebrity trainers, bollywood fitness, fitness regime, bollywood pilates, malaika arora fitness, malaika arora khan, kareena kapoor fitness, kareena kapoor khan, celebrity fitness routines, yoga excercises, bollywood yoga, janhvi kapoor, janhvi excercises, kareena excercises, celebrity excercises, celebrity diet, weight loss plan, celebrity weight loss, belly fat, flat stomach, thigh gap diet","image":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-01/Untitled%20design%20%282%29_0.png?WgUYlsO9FDaVHKReEj8SXdP76DlVXw4d","field_editory_by":"By","path":"/celebrity/features/a19420/cosmoexclusive-5-minutes-bollywoods-fave-pilates-girl-namrata-purohit","created":"23 January 2020 ","time_created":"2020-01-23T13:00:00+05:30","field_section":"Celebrity","field_section_url":"/celebrity","field_content_type":"Features","notes":null,"notes_syn":null,"userData_node":"630","userData":{"uid":"630","field_first_name":"Arpita Kala","editor_sef":"/author/630/arpita"},"field_first_name":null,"authorpath":null,"userPicUrl":null},{"nid":"19426","title":"7 Photographs That Take You Inside Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas's Stunning L.A.

I absolutely want to go to more parts of Indonesia, Vietnam and undiscovered parts of Italy.  I have mostly covered all the beautiful parts of Europe but do want to visit anything that I may have missed out on. \r\n\r\nCosmo: What are the 5 products that you NEVER travel without? \r\n\r\nSS: Depending on the weather of the place I'm visiting, I like to carry proper skincare products. And, of course, my medicines! I don’t like travelling without them and I take extra along too because it's not cool to fall sick in strange countries because they have their own rules, you need to have travel insurance and whatnots. I always carry my swimwear too because I like to swim. And my hair products!\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nCosmo: What's your favourite lipstick shade?\r\n\r\nSS: I mix and match all of my lipstick shades. I just like my lipsticks to blend well and I never use just one colour because that is so boring. So, I mix two or three colours to make my own shade whatever suits my mood or clothes at that time. Some of my favourite shades to mix are MAC Ruby Red and Faux Satin.\r\n\r\nCosmo: What are your beauty resolutions for 2020?\r\n\r\nSS: Wow, I never thought about that!  But I do want to concentrate on my health in 2020. I want to be absolutely healthy and get really good skin by keeping my system clean so that I don’t even need to apply makeup! Last year, I had a lot of breakouts and I ended up applying more makeup than I usually do. Even though I like makeup because I love creating art and it's like I am painting my face, but I would definitely like to spend less time getting ready. I would like to feel healthy from inside and stick to a more vegetarian diet this year.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nCosmo: What is your fitness mantra to keep in shape? \r\n\r\nSS: I always give due importance to my fitness regime. On days that I don’t workout, I just don’t feel right. The key is to not force anything and go with the flow. When it's not forced, that makes it rather enjoyable. \r\nI have learnt the hard way that we exercise only on the superficial parts of our body. Over the last few years, I’ve faced so many injuries and I got to know about so many smaller muscles in our body that require strengthening from time to time. So, try training your smaller muscles too and keep up the strength.\r\n\r\nYou can do a lot of resistance band exercises at home. Also,  strengthen your core and do cardio! It really enhances your metabolism and energy. \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n \r\n","type":"story","field_meta_title":null,"field_meta_description":"cosmo, cosmo india, cosmopolitan india, cosmo.in, Shama Sikander, shama sikander, James Milliron, dubai, yeh meri life, bollywood, bollywood beauty, celebrity fitness, celebrity scandals, celebrity workout, shama plastic surgery, rizwan sikander, bollywood plastic surgery, bollywood plastic surgeon, celebrity plastic surgery, kylie lip kit, bollywood lipsticks, best indian lipsticks, best indian lip shades, bollywood makeup, celebrity makeup","field_meta_keyword":"cosmo, cosmo india, cosmopolitan india, cosmo.in, Shama Sikander, shama sikander, James Milliron, dubai, yeh meri life, bollywood, bollywood beauty, celebrity fitness, celebrity scandals, celebrity workout, shama plastic surgery, rizwan sikander, bollywood plastic surgery, bollywood plastic surgeon, celebrity plastic surgery, kylie lip kit, bollywood lipsticks, best indian lipsticks, best indian lip shades, bollywood makeup, celebrity makeup","image":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-01/Untitled%20design%20%281%29_2.png?TbMkRnEJuMpgzGL2y0jh9uWl2CrBbtYB","field_editory_by":"By","path":"/celebrity/features/a19432/cosmoexclusive-5-minutes-shama-sikander","created":"21 January 2020 ","time_created":"2020-01-21T12:00:00+05:30","field_section":"Celebrity","field_section_url":"/celebrity","field_content_type":"Features","notes":null,"notes_syn":null,"userData_node":"630","userData":{"uid":"630","field_first_name":"Arpita Kala","editor_sef":"/author/630/arpita"},"field_first_name":null,"authorpath":null,"userPicUrl":null},{"nid":"19422","title":"\"I Can Predict How 2020 Will Turn Out For You\"","field_dek":"Cosmo Ed Nandini Bhalla shares 11 questions and good-for-you habits to help you be happier in the New Year. \r\n","modified":"2020-01-20 14:43:34","status":"1","field_full_dek":"Modification: I can’t quite prophesize that you’ll meet a dashing dude in May or sip wine in Positano in October, but I can reveal if you’ll be happier in the New Year. How? Well, based on how you’ve spent the last 365 days. To know your future, go through the series of good-for-you habits ahead, and confirm if they are already a part of your life. The more yesses you reply with, the more fulfilled you will feel next year. And if you end up with several nays, that’s okay, because the science-backed pointers below can be put into action immediately, to ensure your year is a wonderful one. Ready? Answer the following statements with a yes or no...\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n1. I Practice Gratitude Daily\r\nWhen you’re thankful for the good in your life, you feel more positive. Which makes people want to hang with you. Which means you’ll be less stressed and surrounded by more friends.\r\n2. I’ve Taken Up a New Hobby\r\nStudies prove that people with hobbies tend to be happier and have lower heart rates. Plus, having a favourite pastime improves your thinking and problem-solving abilities.  \r\n\r\n3. I’ve Been Consistent With Exercise\r\nThose exercise-induced endorphins, they’ll give you a high without the hangover. Studies prove that regular exercise—even just once a week for 10 minutes—boosts mood and helps reduce symptoms of depression.\r\n4. I’ve Become Nutrient Conscious Mom was right: a balanced meal really is the secret to a better life. When you eat healthier, you feel more energetic, mentally sharper, and your skin is glowier (a critical reason to smile, you’ll agree).\r\n\r\n5. I Care Less About What People Think\r\nAn approval addiction hurts your self-esteem. Sure, care about the opinions of those who truly matter, but not the judgements of strangers, acquaintances, that friend from high school, or randos on the Internet.\r\n6. I’ve Let Go of Perfection\r\nDo have a desire to excel and do your best; don’t set unrealistic standards that will lead to feelings of inadequacy.\r\n7. I’ve Been Giving Back\r\nAccording to several studies, giving money or help makes us far happier\r\nthan receiving.\r\n8. I Have Fun Plans for April 2020 \r\n\r\nScheduling joy or fun activities in the future means you’ll always have something to look forward to.\r\n9. I Can Say No Without Guilt\r\nYour time is important, you can’t do it all. Saying no to things you don’t enjoy or don’t have the time for means you’re left with hours to focus on the important stuff. PS: according to science, people pleasers are more anxious than those who simply say no to events or opportunities they don’t want to indulge in. \r\n10. I’m Not an Insta Addict\r\nAn obsession with your newsfeed can make you depressed. Limit your social media time and when you do swipe, remember that not everything you see on your feed is real.

It’s high time. And what they might lack in numbers (there are but a handful of them, compared to their male counterparts), this small but powerful army makes up for it with thought-provoking cinema that’s making people across the world sit up and take notice. Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari is part of that tiny tribe that, through its films, is pushing for a positive change.\r\n\r\nFor the uninitiated, Ashwiny has directed two films (both of which have garnered critical and commercial acclaim), with a third one on its way, starring Kangana Ranaut. Her debut directorial venture, Nil Battey Sannata—which Ashwiny also co-wrote with Neeraj Singh, Pranjal Choudhary, and Nitesh Tiwari—had education as its central theme, and highlighted how every person has the right to dream, irrespective of their social strata. Bareilly Ki Barfi, on the other hand, was about a strong-willed, small-town girl. \r\n\r\nAshwiny might be just two-film old in the industry, but she’s definitely not new to the process of creating films. The only difference: earlier, she churned out content as per her clients’ brief, and now she tells her own stories...in her own way. “Being in advertising for over 16 years, I had made over 300 commercials. But I always had an urge to make films because I had already seen the kind of impact a thought-provoking 30- or 45-second advertisement could have. And I thought to myself, if an ad can alter people’s thinking, then a two-hour movie can do wonders. So, I had this desire to tell good stories.”\r\n\r\nAnd that’s how Nil Battey Sannata was conceived. “I had created a commercial for Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC). At that time, and even now, there were many dos and don’ts for girls. For instance, what a girl should study, or if she is born in a certain part of the country, then she is only good enough to get married. The commercial that I worked on was about a young girl in Haryana, who really wanted to study, but her father insisted that her place was in the kitchen. But she was determined, and surpassed all odds and came on KBC. When Mr Amitabh Bachchan asked her about the one thing she’d like to say to the entire country, she said, ‘Mubarak ho, ladki hui hai’ [Congratulations, it’s a girl]. That’s the theme I wanted to take ahead with Nil Battey Sannata.” \r\n\r\nDuring our conversation, Ashwiny gives me multiple examples on why good stories are her first priority, and then the actors who fit the character. And while she would always like to “create films with a message”, she can’t “make boring films, either”. “I believe that the stories I tell should leave people with an afterthought. But it doesn’t necessarily need to be serious. A film has to be entertaining, but at the same time, it should to be honest and make you think,” Ashwiny adds.\r\n\r\nIs it tough being a female director? Ashwiny answers in the negative. “Maybe it’s because of my advertising experience, but I don’t feel the difference. I like to treat it like a normal job, like it’s nothing out of the ordinary. Plus, I have a good team—with a lot of women.”\r\n\r\nWe cut to the present—movie style—to the covershoot, where Ashwiny’s posing with the lead of her upcoming film, Kangana Ranaut. There is a lot of buzz around Panga...people are curious to see how Kangana will transform herself for the role. Ashwiny says, “Panga is an extension of Nil Battey Sannata and Bareilly Ki Barfi...it’s a conversation-starter. The film is based on women’s kabaddi. Though I won’t call it a sports drama, I would say it’s a slice-of-life drama—it is about a woman and her journey, her conflicts and trials in the world of sports. And, of course, Kangana is an amazing actor. I think she is one of the best actresses...rather the best actress in the country. What I love about her is that she brings her own life’s experiences into the film to make it richer.”\r\n\r\nWith a predominantly female cast, including Richa Chadha and Neena Gupta along with Kangana, the energy on the set must be thrilling. Ashwiny agrees. “It’s amazing! Three strong women, who know exactly what they are doing, and working on each others energies and talents—isn’t that the nicest thing?!” \r\n\r\n“And the beauty of it is that none of them have egos...like, I’m the bigger star or the better actor. Kangana is the lead, and then you have Richa who’s equally talented and has an equally strong character. And then there’s Neena Gupta...who’s just wonderful. The fun bit, however, was to see how they discussed the scenes and how non-egotistically they’d ask me if they did okay. And if, sometimes, Nina added a line, or Richa or Kangana added a few words here and there, they would check if that’s okay with me! It was such a nice feeling,” she smiles. \r\n\r\nThrough the course of our chat, Ashwiny cements our belief that she’s a true champion of sisterhood, and loves rooting for her tribe. “I feel there’s a certain kind of energy and understanding women bring to the table. Because, ultimately, it’s a marriage, right? And a marriage can’t survive with silent conversations,” she tells us. “It is the era of collaboration. You can’t be in isolation. And once you collaborate, the universe works in your favour...for your benefit. The partnership between an actor and a director can only survive if both of them are on the same team. If your egos get the better of you, then it’s a recipe for disaster. I always believe that suggestions are not interference. When you’re working with such amazing actors, they come with their own points of view—if you don’t agree with them, just be honest and move on,” Ashwiny concludes.     \r\n \r\n","type":"story","field_meta_title":null,"field_meta_description":"cosmo, cosmopolitan, cosmo india, cosmopolitan india, kangana ranaut, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, panga, bollywood actor, bollywood director, bollywood films, Nil Battey Sannata, bb, Bareilly Ki Barfi, neena gupta, richa chadda, women empowerment, collaboration, women leaders, kaun banega crorepati","field_meta_keyword":"cosmo, cosmopolitan, cosmo india, cosmopolitan india, kangana ranaut, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, panga, bollywood actor, bollywood director, bollywood films, Nil Battey Sannata, bb, Bareilly Ki Barfi, neena gupta, richa chadda, women empowerment, collaboration, women leaders, kaun banega crorepati","image":"https://akm-img-a-in.tosshub.com/sites/cosmo/sites/default/files/2020-01/Cosmopolitan%20Magazine1085%20copy.jpg?cYOqqpFdtmwaWbHIu4U8WQtjI1Eg5VoV","field_editory_by":null,"path":"/celebrity/features/a19396/theres-certain-kind-energy-and-understanding-women-bring-table-ashwiny","created":"15 January 2020 ","time_created":"2020-01-15T17:10:00+05:30","field_section":"Celebrity","field_section_url":"/celebrity","field_content_type":"Features","notes":null,"notes_syn":null,"userData_node":null,"userData":null,"field_first_name":null,"authorpath":null,"userPicUrl":null},{"nid":"19390","title":"\"People Have This Perception That I’m a Really Intense And Serious Guy\": Rajkummar Rao","field_dek":"In a #CosmoExclusiveInterview, the actor opens up about the films close to his heart, plans for 2020, his equation with partner, Patralekhaa, and how he’s nothing like you see of him on-screen.\r\n","modified":"2020-01-23 14:53:30","status":"1","field_full_dek":"Rajkummar Rao is busy living life in the fast lane these days. He’s had three big releases in 2019, four lined up for next, and is currently in the middle of shooting his first International project—The White Tiger, an adaptation of Aravind Adiga’s Man Booker Prize-winning novel by the same name. Simultaneously, he’s orchestrating the final touches to his new home, that he hopes to shift into by early 2020. Also throw in this mix a generous smattering of red-carpet events, movie premieres, promotions...the like. \r\n\r\nAnd covershoots. \r\n\r\nBut he’s not complaining. He wouldn’t have it any other way. He shouldn’t. With a decade in the film industry—nine years and three months, to be precise—Rajkummar has built a career he should justifiably be proud of. From an intense lawyer in Shahid, to a sinister schemer in Judgementall Hai Kya, a starving, skeletal-of-a-man in Trapped, to a portly leader in Bose: Dead/Alive, with a whole lot in between (including a National Award)—the actor’s reportoire of work is conspicuous with a spate of varied characters and impressive transformations.\r\n\r\nThe surprises (twists?) don’t end at just the performances, though. Rajkummar is full of some in person, too. Take, for example, his serious, brooding on-screen image, that often precedes him IRL. But once the laconic replies and the warm smiles settle, he’s the complete antithesis—a goofy prankster, if you will. And also a gold-medallist in combat sports. In the course of the conversation, as we spend the next few hours peeling the different layers of the actor, each turns out to be as complex as the roles Rajkummar Rao is synonymous with...\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nCosmo: How is Rajkummar Rao feeling? \r\n\r\nRajummar Rao: “Content. There are no regrets at all. I’m very pleased with all that I have achieved. I’ve always tried to be part of projects that are important for society, for all of us. Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga was one such film, about a lesbian relationship. It was an important story that needed to be told. I got so much love for my character, Sahil Mirza. I received compliments like, ‘We all need a friend like Sahil’. Then there was Judgementall Hai Kya, in which I was playing a negative character for the first time, and Made In China, and people appreciated my performance in both. In fact, a lot of my female fans told me they really liked my look in the former. They thought I looked really good.” \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: You did look very different from how we’ve usually seen you...\r\n\r\nRK: “Thank you. For me, it’s always about the part I’m playing. If it needs me to look a certain way, I’ll pull out all plugs to do it: whether it’s a good-looking, confident man, or a shy guy-next-door. That’s the kind of commitment I have towards my characters.”\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: In retrospect, how has life changed in 2019?\r\n\r\nRK: “I don’t want to count the materialistic things that I have now which I didn’t earlier...so the only thing that’s really changed is that life has got busier. Much busier.”\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: And personally? \r\n\r\nRK: “Things are shaping up well on that front, too. I’ve recently bought a new house. I’m really excited about that and would like to start living there by early next year. I’m also going on a holiday with Patralekaa soon—our annual winter vacation. I always make sure that both of us go out for about two-three weeks every year. We’re planning to go to Europe this year—Switzerland, France, maybe even Germany and Italy—still figuring it out. After a year of working almost every day and finishing all the commitments, you do need some time for yourself.”\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nC: What’s an ideal holiday like for you guys?\r\n\r\nRK: We don’t like doing anything tourist-y. We love exploring the city on foot—just walking around, soaking it all in, talking to new people, sitting in small, beautiful cafés, and enjoying a good cup of coffee.”\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: You have many critically-acclaimed performances to your credit. Is there any one that is more special than the others?\r\n\r\nRK: “A couple of them, actually, and not necessarily because the films did well, but because of the experiences I had while working on them. Playing Subhash Chandra Bose [in Bose: Dead/Alive] and Omar Sheikh [in Omerta] was really challenging. Both the characters really pushed me as an actor. When it comes to having fun and forming life-long bonds, nothing beats Stree. We had such a great time making that film! Amar [Kaushik], the director, is a brother for life now.”\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: When not working, what’s a typical day in your life like?\r\n\r\nRK: “You know, that happens very rarely, but when I do get time off, I love doing nothing! I’m in bed all day long, watching something on one of the OTT media platforms, over a cup of black coffee with Patralekhaa, and playing with our dog, Gaga—that’s the perfect day off for me. And even when I’m busy, I try to watch at least one film every day. I like drama a lot...and recently watched Marriage Story on Netflix and totally loved it!” \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: Are you a morning person?\r\n\r\nRK: “Absolutely! I love early mornings. When I’m working, it depends on the call time. But when I’m not, I’m usually up by 6:30am. And the first thing I do, every day, irrespective of when I wake up, is pray. Then I have a cup of black coffee and read a little.”\r\n\r\nC: Do you remember what you did with your first paycheck?\r\n\r\nRK: “It was for `5,000. I kept it in my temple at home. It’s still there.”\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: And when did you first realise that you’re a star?\r\n\r\nRK: “Honestly, I still haven’t realised it. I feel awkward calling myself a star. ‘Stardom’ is a fad, it doesn’t last. But as far as being recognised is concerned, that started happening after Kai Po Che, and then Queen. People would come up and ask for a photograph with me. In 2017, it became more obvious, after Bareilly Ki Barfi, Trapped, and Newton.” \r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: You were an ‘outsider’ in the film industry. Was there ever a moment when you thought of giving up and quitting?\r\n\r\nRK: “Never. I didn’t even have a Plan B! Acting is the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do since in school, so no matter what, I could never think of leaving. My love for films kept me going even in the difficult times. And in moments of doubts, I’d speak to my mother and she’d always tell me to hang in there and that everything is going to work out—my mother’s belief in me never let me give up.”\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC. What’s the one thing people usually get wrong about you?\r\n\r\nRK: “They have this perception that I’m a really intense and serious guy...which I’m not! I mean I can be serious if there’s a serious dialogue or discourse going in, but personality-wise, I’m fun. I love cracking jokes and making people laugh. Even on sets, once we’ve broken the ice, people tell me, ‘We thought you wouldn’t talk!’. But there, it also depends on the kind of film I’m doing. If it’s intense, I like to be in my own space and focus on the character. If it’s a light film, I like playing pranks and goofing around.”\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: Really? Give us an example of the latter…\r\n\r\nRK: “During Stree, we were shooting at this temple. It was a looong climb, and we just had one day to shoot there. I decided to have some fun. I had just fractured my foot a few months earlier, so I acted like it was hurting, and started writhing in pain. Everyone panicked! They were all running from pillar to post, trying to help. Someone even suggested getting a chair to carry me in all the way up... It was hilarious. I put up the act for two hours, before finally bursting out laughing!” \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: And do you get angry easily?\r\n\r\nRK: “Oh, very rarely. And I forgive easily, although I don’t forget. But there are some things that make me really, really angry. Like when I read about the atrocities women are subjected to...such as the recent Hyderabad incident. Or, when people look down upon others. I don’t believe in hierarchy at all. Another thing that bothers me is people being lazy about their work or not feeling passionate about what they’re doing.”\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: You and Patralekhaa have been in a steady relationship for years now. What are the building blocks of a solid relationship?\r\n\r\nRK: “Love...of course! You have to be madly in love with your partner. And, understanding... Also, you have to be best friends with them. Whatever you’d do with your BFF, you should be able to do with the person you’re in a relationship with.”\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nC: If you had to reveal one secret to Cosmo, what would that be?\r\n\r\nRK: “Not many people know this, but I’m a trained martial artist. I’m a national-level gold medallist. I can’t say I practise regularly, because my work schedule doesn’t allow it, but I try to as often as possible.”\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nStyling: Zunaili Malik and Priyanka Yadav\r\n\r\nPhotographs: Tarun Khiwal\r\n\r\nMake-Up: Nitin Purohit; Hair: Vijay P.

Matthew Perry Has Reportedly Always Been In Love With Courteney Cox

OMG!

Cast your minds back to 2015 when the best Friends rumour of them all (bar the reboot) took Twitter by storm. Could Matthew Perry and Courteney Cox aka Chandler and Monica be dating IRL?

 

Of course, that rumour turned out to be largely based on a picture of the pair that had been taken 10 years earlier. Reps also further crushed our dreams of a real-life romance when they said there was zero truth to them.

 

But, while the friends definitely aren't dating and may never have, reports suggest Matthew has had a thing for Courtney pretty much from the get go.

 

According to US Weekly, the actor is "in love" with his co-star and former on-screen wife. Say what now?

 

"Matthew’s always been in love with her," they said. "Matthew has never fully been able to get over her." Whether the feeling was mutual we'll sadly never know.

 

Courteney is currently in a relationship with Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid, while Matthew is thought to be single after splitting from Mean Girls actress Lizzy Caplan in 2012 after six years together.

 

The Chandler/Monica bombshell comes a week after the pair enjoyed a mini reunion. Alongside a selfie of them with that LA glow, Courteney wrote "Guess who I had lunch with today....I KNOW!! Could I BE any happier? #realfriends", punning on some of the show's most infamous catchphrases.

 

Their fellow Friends cast members rushed to comment on the post, with new Instagrammer Jennifer Aniston saying: "MATTY!! ️ I LOVE YOU, GUYS". Lisa Kudrow followed: "Lucky lucky. #beautifulpeople."
