Jerry Seinfeld asked Chris Rock to parody Will Smith Oscars slap in ‘Unfrosted,’ but Rock was still ‘shook’

Jerry Seinfeld asked Chris Rock to parody Will Smith Oscars slap in ‘Unfrosted,’ but Rock was still ‘shook’

[ad_1] Jerry Seinfeld revealed during a recent interview on the “Fly on the Wall” podcast that he wanted Chris Rock to parody the infamous Oscars slap in his feature directorial debut “Unfrosted,” which recently premiered on Netflix. The issue was that Seinfeld filmed the comedy movie not long after the March 2022 Oscars, and Rock was allegedly feeling too “shook” to be able to perform in the movie. “The other thing I wanted to do that I almost did was Chris Rock was going to be the emcee of the Bowl & Spoon Awards — and we shot that right after the Will Smith slap,” Seinfeld explained. “I was going to have somebody come up on the stage and have Chris punch ’em out as they got there.” “Unfrosted” is loosely based on the true story of the creation of Pop-Tarts. Set in 1963, it tracks the rivalry between cereal companies Kellogg’s and Post as they compete to have the breakfast pastry hit the market first. Seinfeld stars in the movie opposite Melissa McCarthy, Jim Gaffigan, Max Greenfield, Hugh …

Prince Harry’s four-word response when he’s asked ‘are you happy to be home’ | Royal | News

[ad_1] Prince Harry had his cheeky grin on full display this morning as he left an event in Central London this morning and headed for his car. The Duke of Sussex, who arrived in the UK on his own yesterday morning, waved to crowds and a waiting camera room who asked him: “Are you happy to be home?” Harry laughed and quickly replied “nice to see you” before hopping into the back of a black Range Rover. It comes after Prince Harry revealed that his father is too busy to meet him while he is back in the UK this week – even though the pair are now just a few miles apart. The Duke of Sussex confirmed that no meeting will take place due to the King’s “full programme”. “It unfortunately will not be possible due to His Majesty’s full programme,” they said. “The Duke of course is understanding of his father’s diary of commitments and various other priorities and hopes to see him soon.” MORE FOLLOWS… [ad_2] Source link

Prince Harry asked King Charles to meet ‘over a month before UK trip’ | Royal | News

[ad_1] King Charles could “easily” have found time to see Prince Harry during his visit to London as his son asked him for a meeting weeks ago, according to a source. Today, May 8, the Duke of Sussex will attend a special commemorative service at St Paul’s Cathedral to mark 10 years since the first Invictus Games. At the same time the King will be attending a garden party at Buckingham Palace, although initial reports suggested he would do his best to reunite with Harry as possible. However yesterday a spokesperson for the Duke stated: “It unfortunately will not be possible due to His Majesty’s full programme. The Duke of course is understanding of his father’s diary of commitments and various other priorities and hopes to see him soon.” Royal historian and friend of the Firm Hugo Vickers told Page Six: “If the King wanted to see Harry, he would find time very easily. You can never be too busy to see your son. A senior royal source told Page Six about their reunion: “We …

Woman Breaks Up With Her Boyfriend After He Asked Her To Become A Tradwife

Woman Breaks Up With Her Boyfriend After He Asked Her To Become A Tradwife

[ad_1] After a couple agreed to focus on their relationship and individual careers before having kids, it came as a big surprise when the woman’s boyfriend revealed a sudden change of heart and suggested his girlfriend give up her career and become a tradwife. Some women would love the opportunity to be stay-at-home moms and embrace “traditional” roles. However, this woman isn’t one of them. She found it particularly insolent that her so-called partner didn’t even consider her opinion on the matter. The woman broke up with her boyfriend on the spot and wished him luck in finding his tradwife. She later took to Reddit’s r/AmIOverreacting forum to explain the context and ask if her reaction was too harsh. She stated that she and her boyfriend are both 26, college-educated, goal-oriented, and career-focused. They had been dating for three years and mutually agreed to wait until their 30s — when they would ideally be married and in a more stable position — to have their first child. All in all, this was a wise plan, …

Judge Asked to Question Jurors Who Awarded  Million in New Hampshire Youth Center Abuse Case

Judge Asked to Question Jurors Who Awarded $38 Million in New Hampshire Youth Center Abuse Case

[ad_1] CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Attorneys for a man who prevailed in a landmark lawsuit over abuse at New Hampshire’s youth detention center asked a judge Tuesday to reconvene and question jurors, some of whom have expressed dismay that the $38 million award could be slashed by nearly 99%. A jury on Friday awarded $38 million to David Meehan, who alleged that the state’s negligence allowed him to be repeatedly raped, beaten and held in solitary confinement as a teenager at the Youth Development Center. But the attorney general’s office is seeking to reduce the award under a state law that allows claimants against the state to recover a maximum of $475,000 per “incident.” Three distraught jurors have since contacted Meehan’s attorneys, including the jury foreperson, who described feeling “devastated” and “duped,” and another who said the state is misinterpreting the verdict. No hearing has been scheduled, but here are some things to know about how the dispute unfolded. Meehan, 42, went to police in 2017 and sued the state three years later. Since then, …

P&O Ferries boss asked if he is ‘modern-day pirate’ for paying staff £4.87 an hour | P&O Ferries

P&O Ferries boss asked if he is ‘modern-day pirate’ for paying staff £4.87 an hour | P&O Ferries

[ad_1] The boss of P&O Ferries has been asked if he is “a pirate” who appears to be “robbing staff blind” – as he confirmed to MPs that the group’s seafarers had been receiving pay rates even lower than he had previously told parliament. Peter Hebblethwaite previously appeared in front of a joint transport and business committee in March 2022 to respond to P&O Ferries sacking 786 staff and replacing them with low-paid agency workers. At the time he told parliamentarians that the lowest-paid agency worker would receive £5.15 an hour – only for a Guardian and ITV News investigation this March to reveal how some P&O seafarers were receiving an hourly rate as low as £4.87. On Tuesday, in an appearance before the business and trade committee, which was prompted by the reports, the chair, Liam Byrne MP, opened by asking Hebblethwaite: “Are you basically a modern-day pirate? … You seem to be robbing your staff blind.” The ferry group’s chief executive said without the mass sackings “P&O would not be here today” – …

Princess Kate was asked to change her name to avoid clash with two senior royals | Royal | News

[ad_1] The Princess of Wales was previously asked to change her name to avoid clashing with two other senior royals. Although she is often known publicly as ‘Kate’, the royal is still referred to as ‘Catherine’ by many members of the Royal Family – including her husband, Prince William. As reported by OK!, Kate was asked to change her name as it appeared to clash with Charles and Camilla – with their names both beginning with the letter ‘C’. According to Prince Harry, who spoke of his sister-in-law’s name in his bombshell memoir Spare, the King and Queen wanted Kate to spell ‘Catherine’ with the letter ‘K’ instead of a ‘C’. Writing in Spare, Harry wrote: “There were already two royal cyphers with a C and a crown above: Charles and Camilla. It would be too confusing to have another. Make it Katherine with a K, they suggested. “I wondered now what came of that suggestion.” Recalling the moment he and William learned of the ask, Harry added in his memoir: “I turned to Willy, …

Jewel Plays It Coy When Asked About Rumored Kevin Costner Romance

Jewel Plays It Coy When Asked About Rumored Kevin Costner Romance

[ad_1] Jewel is ready to talk about love. But it’s not with you-know-who. The 49-year-old “Foolish Games” singer opened up in detail about her personal life — from an abusive childhood and a painful divorce to motherhood helping her stay grounded — in a profile with People, which, yes, also asked her about her rumored romance with Yellowstone star Kevin Coster. The outlet prefaced the question by first teasing Jewel had “finally found true love.” But the kind of love Jewel’s talking about is self-love, something she achieved with help from addressing the “three spheres” of existence — inner realm, physical ream and unseen realm. But when asked about Costner, Jewel seemingly played it coy. People noted she shut down the notion that a man has anything to do with where she currently finds herself in life. “I found love and I’m not talking about Kevin’s. I’m so happy, irrelevant of a man. It has nothing to do with being in a relationship or not being in one,” she said. Jewel attends the 2023 Angel Awards Gala …

“Pecker was a partner in crime”: DA “couldn’t have asked for a better narrative” to open Trump trial

“Pecker was a partner in crime”: DA “couldn’t have asked for a better narrative” to open Trump trial

[ad_1] Donald Trump is a political pugilist, a very dirty fighter who will do anything to win. In a recent fundraising email, he emphasized that personality trait, telling his MAGA people, “I have always loved you. That’s why I take every single punch to the face and get right back up.” But in the first of his four historic criminal trials, Trump, has, to this point, been on the ropes. He is, so far, being pummeled by the prosecution in Manhattan’s hush-money case.  The first prosecution witness in the trial was David Pecker, the former publisher of the National Enquirer. Pecker testified last week that he knowingly participated in a plot with Donald Trump to conceal the ex-president’s affair with Stormy Daniels (as well as former Playboy model Karen McDougal) from the American people during the 2016 election. Per the prosecution’s argument, this was more than just keeping a secret about a womanizer and noted playboy’s dalliances: It constituted a type of contribution to Trump’s election campaign and deprived the American people of information that …
