A new tabloid report claims Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys looked unhappy at a red carpet event for their TV series, “The Americans,” because they got into a big fight beforehand. Gossip Cop looked into this story, and we can exclusively reveal the truth.

The real-life couple, who co-star as married spies on the hit show, recently attended FX’s For Your Consideration event in Los Angeles to promote the series. A supposed “source,” however, tells Star that the pair “could barely muster a smile while posing for the cameras.” The outlet’s dubious insider further speculates, “Perhaps Matthew and Keri were just having a bad day, but it seemed like they might have had an argument beforehand, and neither of them looked willing to let it go. It was tense!”

But Gossip Cop checked in with a mutual pal who attended the event with the couple, and we’re exclusively assured the tabloid’s story is “ridiculous.” Despite posing somewhat stoically on the red carpet, there wasn’t any tension between Russell and Rhys, nor were either of them in a bad mood. Additionally, the actress did in fact smile plenty during the event, as is evident in the picture below.

Unfortunately, Star has a habit of publishing false stories surrounding celebrities on the red carpet. Gossip Cop recently called out the magazine for wrongly reporting that Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban faked PDA on the red carpet at last month’s Cannes Film Festival. We also previously busted the publication for its tall tale about Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie having a “red carpet showdown” at the 2015 Critics’ Choice Awards. This latest article from the frequently discredited magazine is equally bogus. See the proof below.
