Eric Dane spent the weekend taking his family to the annual Malibu Chili Cook-Off, but unlike his storyline in “Euphoria,” this was a more lighthearted trip.
Dane was seen Saturday walking around the carnival with with his wife, Rebecca Gayheart, and their daughters, Billie and Georgia.
The former “Grey’s Anatomy” star was seen boarding the “High Voltage” carnival ride, which swings riders upside down while they sit in a cart.
Keeping it casual in a white shirt, shorts and a 49ers baseball cap, Dane was smiling wide while aboard “High Voltage.”
Gayheart opted out of the extreme contraption, and instead took photos from the ground while excitedly cheering on her husband and daughter.
Fans of “Euphoria” may also be into the “life imitates art” theme of Dane attending a carnival after his character was featured in a similar setting during one of the most intense episodes of the HBO show.
The fourth episode of “Euphoria,” titled, “Shook Ones Pt. II,” has been hailed as not only the best episode of the first season — but also a game changer for combining stunning visual imagery with impactful and emotional storytelling.
In the episode, Dane’s character of Cal Jacobs is faced with his secret life when Jules (Hunter Schafer) confronts him during the chili cook-off.
Later in the episode, Jacobs finds Jules, and in one of the most-tense moments of the season — does not get violent — but instead shows humility during a very vulnerable scene.
No question the Malibu Chili Cook-Off was much more docile than the drama Zendaya and her cohorts have been cooking up for the star.
