Downton Abbey Creator Basically Calls Dan Stevens a Shit

Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes would have liked to give Matthew and Lady Mary Crawley a happier ending, but wasn't able to because Dan Stevens bailed so unceremoniously.

"I had no choice. Dan would not stay – he was determined to go. Everyone liked him and thought he was fantastic. I tried to persuade him to come back just for one episode of the next series so we could give Matthew and Mary a happy ending but he wanted to go off to America and now I believe he has a three-movie deal. He’s doing very well!”

When you translate that from Tory peer British it means "Dan Stevens is an ungrateful little douchenugget." [Express]

We forget, amidst the Kristen Stewart hubbub, that Mary-Kate Olsen is actually the O.G. frowner. She looked unhappy in a private Knicks suite with Olivier Sarkozy, maybe because she forgot to bring the thimble she takes a nap in.

“She looked annoyed,” said a spy. “She wasn’t smiling . . . he was rubbing her back, kissing her, making all these sweet gestures.” Then, “She perked up to take a photo, and looked grumpy again.”

Later, Sarkozy reportedly "entertained" Mary-Kate at the Tribeca Ball by "doing a little dance." Yep, sounds like these two crazy kids are gonna MAKE IT. [Page Six]
