Hang (at home!) with “The White Lotus” actress @haleyluhoo (Haley Lu Richardson) as she gets ready for the @sagawards.
Haley Lu Richardson is officially living every Jonas Brothers fan’s dream — going from partaking in a meet and greet with the band as a kid, to having a starring role in their latest music video as an adult.
In the new visual for “Wings,” the lead single off the group’s upcoming sixth LP The Album, the 27-year-old White Lotus star dances in a hotel room with a group of pals to the uptempo track.
Rocking a Las Vegas T-shirt, Richardson and the crew get ready for a JoBros gig in style, with group choreography and some blindfolded kissing of cardboard cutouts.
Later in the clip, she is greeted by the guys themselves: Joe Jonas, Nick Jonas and Kevin Jonas.
Richardson has been a big fan of the Jonas Brothers since the late 2000s, when the actress attended a meet-and-greet from the group, which she opened up about in a December episode of the Late Late Show with James Coden.
“This is the picture that I talk to of my inner child… She was in love with the Jonas Brothers,” Richardson said of her teen self. “She probably waited for three or four hours in a meet and greet line with her mother to meet Nick and Joe and Kevin. And she had made this tie, she had made this tie herself because Nick at the time was going through a tie phase.”
After pointing out a DIY tie that she made for Nick, 30, Richardson explained to host James Corden that security took the item from her, as fans weren’t allowed to share gifts with the group. She also admitted that she once had an AOL account named “Haley Jonas.”
Following a commercial break, Corden, 44, told Richardson he was getting a phone call. “My phone is vibrating and it’s a bit weird,” he said. “Let me just very quickly call this person back.”
Richardson, who admitted she was sweaty, asked if it was Nick — and it was.
“I may or may not have the tie,” Nick joked, telling Richardson that he had just finished White Lotus the night before.
“I just wanted to tell you that you’re a huge part of my childhood and therefore life forever,” Richardson then told the musician. “All of my Converse, as I said earlier, in grade school and middle school have your name on them. And I’m so proud of you and going to your guys’ concerts now recently as adults — I feel so proud of the three of you and I’m so happy for your lives and your creative endeavors and your families. And I love you.”
Jonas returned the compliments: “That means the world,” he said. “This is such a lovely surprise. And next time you want to come to a show, bring another tie and I’ll make sure that it gets to me.”
The Album will be released on May 12.

The White Lotus Cast Reunited at Louis Vuitton & W’s Awards Season Dinner
There’s no question that L.A. is the place to be during awards season—but on Friday, January 6, Louis Vuitton and W magazine threw an intimate, star-studded dinner party to drive the point home even further. Vuitton’s artistic director of women’s Nicolas Ghesqiuère and W’s editor in chief Sara Moonves were joined by Michelle Yeoh, Cate Blanchett, Taylour Paige, Kaia Gerber, Austin Butler, Elle Fanning, Danielle Deadwyler, and many more stars for a candlelit soirée in the hills. Miranda Kerr and Li Jun Li embraced on the step and repeat, while Gerber and Butler relaxed and posed for photographer Greg Williams. Colman Domingo, Mia Goth, and Riley Keough were dressed in head-to-toe Louis Vuitton. As was Michelle Williams who caught up with editor at large Lynn Hirschberg ahead of dinner.
In addition to being a celebration of nearly every major actor in the awards conversation, the evening also turned out to be something of a reunion for one of the biggest television series of the year. The White Lotus stars Meghann Fahy and Haley Lu Richardson arrived in looks that wouldn’t be totally out of place in their characters’ wardrobes with Richardson opting for a colorful belted dress worn over a satin bra top and Fahy donning a an slick all-black ensemble. They were joined by the show’s music consultant Este Haim along with actor Federico Ferrante, who played Rocco (and is rumored to be dating Este Haim in real life).
The scene at last night’s dinner recalled the videos of The White Lotus cast partying together in Sicily while filming, which proliferated around the Internet following the hit show’s season finale. Fahy, Richardson, Haim, and Ferrante hit the dance floor with gusto, and Richardson (also known as her character, the divisive fashion plate, Portia) flashed her pearly whites at every opportunity. It’s clear this crew knows how to celebrate a big year. And what better time than awards season to put on your party shoes?
Ashley Park and Haley Lu Richardson have been tapped to announce the 29th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations, live on the SAG Awards’ Instagram page (@sagawards) on Wednesday, Jan. 11.
The nominations announcement will kick off at 6:50 a.m. PT, with an introduction by Fran Drescher, SAG-AFTRA president. Then, at 7:00 a.m. PT, Park (Netflix’s “Emily in Paris”) and Richardson (HBO’s “The White Lotus”) will reveal this year’s nominees in the film and television categories.
SAG Awards Committee members Jason George and Elizabeth McLaughlin will conclude the morning with the nominees for the outstanding action performances by television and film ensemble categories and other “announcements.” In May 2022, it was revealed that after 25 years, the SAG Awards would no longer air on TNT and TBS. No new network or deal has been confirmed yet.
Voting for the SAG nominations concluded on Sunday, Jan. 8. A bellwether for the Oscars acting and best picture categories, multiple consumer-friendly titles and box-office hits are expected to be among the nominees. Most notably, Warner Bros’ “Elvis” with Austin Butler and A24’s “Everything Everywhere All at Once” with Michelle Yeoh are in the running, in addition to critically acclaimed films such as Searchlight Pictures’ “The Banshees of Inisherin” with Colin Farrell and “Tár” with Cate Blanchett.
In television, we’re expecting to see drama series such as HBO’s “House of the Dragon” and Netflix’s “The Crown” to nab mentions, with comedies like ABC’s “Abbott Elementary” and Hulu’s “Only Murders in the Building” likely to be favorites.
This marks the third year that the SAG Awards have opted to reveal its nominees on Instagram.
The 29th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony will occur on Sunday, Feb. 26, 2023, at Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles.
