UPDATE 23/2/2022: Attention all you horny, emotionally-vulnerable bisexuals, a bearded Paul Mescal and Phoebe Bridgers were reportedly spotted in Fitzroy on Wednesday. No babes, this is not a drill.

Broadsheet writer Tomas Telegramma said he spotted the couple walking past the company’s office after 11:30 in the morning. They appeared to be doing some certified cute shit in the state’s hipster capital.

“They were casually walking hand in hand on the corner of Smith and Moor streets,” he said.

Oh, to be in PEDESTRIAN.TV’s Melbourne office right now.

Telegramma said the Punisher singer was sporting her signature skeleton tee. But the Normal People star apparently looked less recognisable and had grown out a bit of a beard. Hot.

Perhaps the new facial hair was for his role in the upcoming dystopian sci-fi flick Foe? The film is being shot in Victoria and stars Mescal as well as Saorise Ronan and Lakeith Stanfield. Ronan plays Mescal’s wife and has also been spotted in the area as of January.

Original 18/1/2021: TikToker @KatieBabyPotatie caught the Irish hottie roaming the streets of the indie Melbourne suburb in a video posted on January 16th. It effectively sent Fitzoy’s iced coffee-sipping and tote-bag-wearing population into a love-stricken monsoon frenzy. Other eagle-eyed locals said at the time they spotted Saorise Ronan there too.

The “I can change him” energy of these clips. People on Twitter said they also spotted him in the area — wished that was me.

It’s unclear whether Lakeith has touched down Down Under as of publishing. But trust we will let you know.

According to Twitter account Film Updates, the extremely hot trio that tickles everyone’s fancy bits flew to Australia in January to film an adaptation of the sci-fi novel Foe by Iain Reid. Mescal and Ronan are set to play a husband and wife in the dystopian world while Stanfield is set to star in a ~mysterious~ role that will no doubt sweep me off my feet.

The way bisexuals are WINNING here. Yep, the casting for this flick screams bisexual rights. It threw the first brick at Stonewall. It marched when nobody else could. It gave me the ability to breathe.

I mean, here’s an actual photo of me feeling humbled, blessed, skin clear, crops grown and thriving, staying in my lane, etc, at this news:

Mescal previously sent the entire adult community of Sydney’s Inner-West and Inner-City into a frenzy when he was spotted on Tinder here in early November last year. Months later, the Normal People actor started filming his new movie Carmen in a small village around two hours away from Sydney, which was extremely rude of him but good for the country girls making do.

How are we supposed to date with that distance? C’mon Paulie boy.

Tragically for us, it appears that he’s currently dating indie-folk singer Phoebe Bridgers. Good thing they look so incredible together. Talk about a romantic dream team.

Ronan is hot off a starring role in Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch with frequent co-star Timotheé Chalamet (case in point: Ladybird and Little Women). A Chalamet mural recently rocked up in Melbourne last week so you could theoretically say that Lil Timmy Tim is in the country, too. Stanfield starred in Judas and the Black Messiah, The Harder They Fall as well as my dreams.
