Hollywood celebrities clearly haven’t gotten the memo that their coronavirus-themed social media videos are falling flat with the public. Despite widespread derision, the stars keep pumping out stay-at-home dispatches that, in some cases, reveal a startling disconnection from reality.
Stars including Jessica Chastain, Minnie Driver, Mark Duplass, and Rita Wilson have posted new videos revealing glimpses into their homes, as well as inadvertent glimpses into their attention-craving Hollywood mindset.
While working class families around the world face economic uncertainty, actress Chastain celebrated her birthday with a bottle of Dom Pérignon rosé champagne, which typically sells for more than $200.

Going stir crazy? Have a suggestion for my Quarantunes playlist? TEXT ME! (310) 299-9260 – I'm giving you my phone number!! And YES… It's actually me. Text me so I can let you know what I'm up to, when I'm in your city (once we can leave our houses), and so we can stay in touch. I mean, not ACTUALLY touch. Social distancing works!
