Earlier this week, Armie Hammer had the internet thinking: “Damn, you were a lot more fun when you were eating peaches and dancing to The Psychedelic Furs” after he came for celebrities posting memorial selfies with the late Stan Lee. Armie held firm that if you posted a picture of yourself with Stan Lee, you were tacky and self-absorbed, and he was above all that. Enough people must have called him by his new nickname (aka Asshat, which we’ll get to in a moment), because he’s now very sorry.
German Playboy Admits That Some Of Ennio Morricone’s Quotes About Quentin Tarantino Were “Reproduced Incorrectly”
Over the weekend, an interview between German Playboy and legendary film composer Ennio Morricone went viral due to some quotes he allegedly made about two-time collaborator Quentin Tarantino. Ennio called QT a “cretin,” and “not a director.” He described Quentin’s style as blatantly stealing from others and called his films “trash.”
After the interview gained some attention, Ennio released a statement saying the quotes weren’t from him. German Playboy stood by its story. But now Variety is reporting that German Playboy has admitted that the story wasn’t exactly the truth.
Viggo Mortensen is a white guy, and I think most of can agree that we live in a world where white people shouldn’t ever use the n-word in real life. But Viggo must not have realized this when he opened his mouth during a recent discussion after a Film Independent screening of his new film, Green Book. And now he’s really sorry.
Last week, the publicity tour for Rebel Wilson’s upcoming romantic comedy Isn’t It Romantic had people thinking “Isn’t she delusional” after she claimed she was the first plus-size star of a rom-com. Of course that wasn’t true, and Twitter came after her. Rebel responded by blocking the people who called her out, which only made things worse. Rebel is now sorry.
This is why it’s important to take selfie breaks every once in a while to read the damn news. Because if Kim Kardashian did that sort of thing, she might have read about Shaun White getting in trouble for his Simple Jack Halloween costume. And she might have said to herself, “So apparently we don’t use the r-word anymore? Good to know.” But a self-obsessed fame whore never takes a break, and so up until last night, Kim casually threw around the r-word. After getting called out by people who are familiar with the current protocol on such a word (aka don’t use it), Kim is apologizing.
For a Halloween party this weekend, Shaun White decided to dress up as Ben Stiller’s movie-within-a-movie character Simple Jack from Tropic Thunder. Obviously it didn’t go over well, and he’s apologizing for it now.
