I know I’m just a lowly part-time entertainment writer, but I would be beyond delighted to be friends with the Queer Eye guys. The stars of the hit Netflix series, currently working on a third season, recently dished about their celebrity pals, and teased that one of them may be sharing the screen with them on a future episode.
At a screening of their show on Sunday night in Los Angeles, the Fab Five, Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Antoni Porowski, Tan France and my beloved Jonathan Van Nes.s shared that Reese Witherspoon, Gigi Hadid and Florence Welch (not sure about the Machine) were among their famous pals. They also sounded thrilled about having Justin Theroux’s number on speed dial.
Jonathan, who has dealt with some follicular failures on Queer Eye, had nothing but praise for Justin’s hair. He gushed, “Me and Justin talk a lot about product, but he’s actually, like, really smart and well educated when it comes to, like, everything.” He went on to add that the actor, currently starring in the comedy The Spy Who Dumped Me, is “really a renaissance man. [He] really doesn’t need so much advice, he’s actually very smart.”
At the premiere of Spy, Justin shared the love, telling Entertainment Tonight that this mutual admiration society was formed “when I saw the show and I fell in love with them.” He confessed to Jimmy Kimmel that he loved the show so much that he sent an Instagram DM to Jonathan when he was in New York around Easter and they hit it off. Since then, he revealed to Jimmy that, “They’ve sort of included me in their little wolf pack.” Justin has met Antoni, who gave him “very good advice on hot sauce” and Tan. He is looking forward to meeting Karamo and Bobby.
Despite their friendship, don’t expect Justin to be getting the full Queer Eye treatment anytime soon. As he told Jimmy, “That was kind of the hope that I’d get these great tips and I’d have a makeover of my house, but actually it’s the opposite. I’m usually the one doing the shopping, like, ‘Oh my god, the guys are coming over!’” He did get Antoni to make him nachos one time, as he’s a wiz with an avocado, so that’s no surprise.
I love living in a world where Justin, who will always be the cowboy from Romy and Michelle’s High School Reunion to me, is pals with the Queer Eye guys. It just makes me love him even more.
As for that special guest on Queer Eye season three, the cast is not spilling any secrets, but Jonathan did tease that “The biggest of the big of the big of the big, of the most major earth shattering, earth moving, earth shattering cameos could maybe happen.” I can’t imagine who it could be, although I do wish it was me.
