Actress and activist Sophia Bush is coming off a huge win: “The Incredibles 2” is out, showcasing her role as superhero and superfan, Voyd, one she was insanely excited about according to HelloGiggles.
“I screamed and an entire restaurant full of people turned and looked at me, which was mortifying, but just so exciting. Kind of an out of body experience. This is a big bucket list thing for me and it happened,” she said about getting casted.
So this should be an exciting time for her! Instead, resident sh*t-stirrer Andy Cohen decided to hash out her short-lived marriage to Chad Michael Murray back in 2005. I mean, yes, fans (aka me) have wanted answers for a good long while about this courtship, but timing is everything, Cohen.
Bush was 22 years old at the time and explained to Cohen on his radio show the pressure she felt as a young actress in love. “It was not a thing I actually really wanted to do,” she said about getting married at that time.
“How do you let everyone down...when you have bosses telling you that you’re the only person who gets a person to work on time and 200 people either get to see their kids at night or they don’t because our days start on time?” she continued.
So basically, our girl is saying she felt what lots of girls that age feel: that they’re responsible for their men’s behavior and her marriage to Murray was a big part of that. Well, he disagrees.
Murray first had his rep respond to Bush’s interview singing his client’s praises, but then got involved himself on Twitter.
I don’t think...he listened to the interview?
Anyway, as if that wasn’t annoying enough, then Murray’s wife of three years, Sarah Roemer, wanted a say. I don’t know about you, but I’m getting flashbacks of my own petty high school experience (except these people are in their 30s). She posted a now-deleted Instagram photo with a message that basically said Bush should stay in her lane.
Like, do better.
No one should be coming for Bush in the first place. Her activism is unmatched and this caliber of frivolous drama does not align well with her vision of female empowerment. She’s also just come off the high-profile condemnation of “One Tree Hill” creator Mark Schwahn with her other female co-stars. Bush has bigger fish to fry than Cohen’s sneaky questions, tweeting, “Can y’all be Elsa, and just let the questions go?”
‘Til next time, Hollywood trolls!
