Jonathan Majors Is Obsessed With Cups & He Might Be Onto Something

There’s just something about seeing a strong, charming man being gentle and taking care of a small, delicate object. Petting a puppy, picking flowers, or in the case of Creed III star, Jonathan Majors, carrying around a tiny, ceramic cup — it just warms this tender heart of mine.

Lately, Majors has been capturing all of our hearts with his flirty interview segments and dreamy magazine covers, and if you’ve had a chance to check out any red carpet, movie premiere, or candid paparazzi shots, in hand, you will find a dainty little cup accompanying him.

Majors' collection of ceramic cups seems to be the one thing he just can’t leave home without. And if I’m being honest, I’ve never wanted to be a cup so bad. The Yale School of Drama-trained actor has been spotted with the tiny companion in public for a few years now, keeping these portable vessels on hand for any occasion.

From speckled mugs to handleless copper tumblers, Majors has us asking, what’s up with the cups?

“It just became a thing for me to always have my own vessel,” Majors shares during a video for GQ, “to kind of move through the world with.” And boy, has he been moving. From starring in the upcoming blockbuster, Creed III, to stepping into his supervillain era as Kang the Conqueror in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, the Lovecraft Country actor has been working non-stop, which explains why keeping his trusty cups alongside for his biggest career moments could serve as a way to keep him grounded.

During a recent interview with Vanity Fair, he clarifies what he’s really been filling his cups up with. “Well, cups are built to hold things. So my cup holds water—it’s never alcohol,” he explains. “People should know that. I think it’s important to stay hydrated.”

He further explains how a piece of advice from his mother inspired his signature staple item. “My mom told me, just coming up, ‘Yo, never let anybody fill your cup. No one can fill your cup for you.’ And it just became a thing.”

So while we all can’t have the pleasure of being the lady… I mean… cup that Majors holds close, we can take a page out of his book to stay hydrated and remain mindful of what we fill our own cups up with.

This post is in partnership with SheaMoisture.

For Black women, there’s one compliment that will boost our confidence like none other: “Come through hair!” You know the vibe! Walking into a room with folks acknowledging that your hair is laid for the gawds, and the effort that it took to get it there, is a top five feeling. And with the holiday season just weeks away, you’ll be hearing that quite often. Between Thanksgiving gatherings with the family, Friendsgiving, company parties, and Christmas get-togethers, the opportunities to let your hair show up and show out aren’t too far away.

Apart from the holiday stuntin’, the end-of-year slow down is also the perfect opportunity to reevaluate the year your hair has had. Whether you kept it cute with protective braids, went big with blowouts, or let loose with textured twist-outs, this is the perfect time to give your hair the gift of TLC - tender lovin’ curls. Like the weather, our hair goes through seasons and has different needs depending on what we’ve put it through. Perhaps the transition into fall/winter has left your curls a bit parched and in need of some serious hydration. Or maybe your strands could use some restorative conditioning after taking it down from a convenient protective style. No matter what category you fall into, SheaMoisture has hundreds of ways that you can clean, treat and refresh your hair for a healthy shine that will bring you into the new year right. Bring your curls back to life with the nourishing and fragrant Coconut & Hibiscus line. Boosted with natural ingredients such as coconut oil, neem oil, carrot oil, and shea butter, this line is the antidote to reviving thirsty, dehydrated hair. Even better - with SheaMoisture’s custom quiz, you can get a hair analysis that will lead you to the right products for your hair needs. Say hello to sleek edges, and moisturized, stronger strands.

Signs You Might Be A Little Bi-Curious & What To Do About It

I like big butts, and I can not lie! When Sir Mix-A lot made that song, he made it just for me. As a self-identifying heterosexual woman over the years, I have often wondered if my love for phat asses was normal. Maybe my infatuation with phat asses stems from the fact that I was not blessed to be able to become a card-carrying member of the big-ass brigade. My ass is flat. It doesn’t jiggle or bounce. It’s just there. So because of my lack thereof, I've learned to appreciate others. It’s something about the way a phat ass moves in a dress or how the cheeks dance around in a circle when twerking that makes me want to caress it. I often joke with my friends that I turn “gay” every time a phat ass walks past.
