Mendes posted a photo of Janelle Monáe with the caption: “Obviously this wasn’t my favorite moment of the night.... And if I may, I’d like to dedicate this to the memory of her brother, Juan Carlos Mendes.”And on Monday, Mendes found a way to publicly, but subtly, return the compliment—by coyly referring to it in an Instagram post.But in hindsight, those red carpet photos probably wouldn't even exist if they hadn't both been in a movie that needed promoting, the dour 2012 drama That film, for all its tear-jerker elements, provided the setting in which our heroes met and fell in love before embarking on a very un-Hollywood quest to live their joint life out of the spotlight.
