Will Smith Did A “Red Table Talk Takeover” And Discussed Dropping Weight After His Dad Bod Went Viral And Getting Unexpectedly Spat On By One Of His “Emancipation” Co-Stars
Most people who put the smackdown on someone on stage at a formal televised public event forever immortalized on the internet for millions and millions to gawk at for eternity might consider taking a beat (heyyo!) to fade into the background and self-reflect without a mistrustful audience. Will Smith isn’t “most people,” though, and recently he’s been trying to make Will Smith happen again by crying on The Daily Show and now doing a Red Table Talk takeover as he tries to snatch that Oscar for his upcoming film, Emancipation. And though Will isn’t even allowed to attend an Oscar ceremony for the next decade if he does snag a nomination, he talked about the extreme measures he took for the role, which included losing weight after a 2021 picture of his dad bod went viral and getting surprise-spat on by one of his co-stars.
Jaden Smith Is Getting Roasted For Saying He’d Rather Hang Out With Adults Than Have To Talk To Kids His Own Age
Ask any average teen who they’d rather spend an evening with, and I think you’d be hard-pressed to find a teen who replies, “Gosh, there’s nothing I love more than listening to Karen and Frank discuss their current HOA issues with lawn care and trash removal.” Of course, that’s most kids, but not Jaden Smith. Because Jaden recently admitted that there was nothing that churned his stomach than the sound of a silly child his own age asking him to converse in an open dialogue. Jaden’s mature mind and precious time was spent waxing poetic with the grow-ups around him.
It was the smack heard round the world. Will Smith marched onstage at the Oscars and slapped Chris Rock for making a G.I. Jane joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved head. But what happened after the Oscars ended? Other than my eyes getting assaulted by thousands of wild, wild takes on Twitter (*cough* Judd Apatow *cough*)? Well, according to Diddy, Will and Chris made up. Page Six reports that Diddy said the beef was over, the two are “brothers,” and “it’s all love.” Will went to the annual Vanity Fair Oscar party with his family, posed for pics, and danced the night away. All’s well that ends well! I’m sure we’ll never hear anything else about this incident ever again. Continue reading
Rosie O’Donnell, Tiffany Haddish And Others Shared Their Reactions To Will Smith Slapping Chris Rock At The Oscars
We all witnessed the same disappointing, and frankly, wildly unprofessional behavior unfold live in front of our eyes during last night’s Academy Awards broadcast. I think we can all agree that what we saw, which was Will Smith bum-rushing the stage and slapping Chris Rock in the face after he made a G.I. Jane II joke about Will’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, who suffers from alopecia, was undeniably shocking. Yet, unsurprisingly, reactions to The Slap have been as all over the place as the broadcast itself. But personally, when the camera person in charge of audience reaction shots failed to capture the crucial 30 seconds between when Will was shown laughing at Chris’ joke, and the moment Will saw Jada’s face and decided he needed to slap the taste out of his mouth, I said to myself, “wow, this is a new low for Hollywood.” Say what you will about the demise of the Golden Globes, but at least their crew would have had coverage.
With both of her parents currently incarcerated for their starring roles in Operation Varsity Blues, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli‘s daughter Olivia Jade has been, on occasion, attending various parties around L.A. And one of the benefits of kicking it with the Kardashians is the connections one makes. For Olivia Jade, that means running in the same circles as Jaden and Willow Smith (who else do you think introduced her to the concept of “white privilege“), which she’s parlayed into a seat at Jada Pinkett Smith’s infamous Red Table of Truth. That is if you can believe a word that comes out of her mouth. Otherwise, it’s just a red table in a Facebook studio made to look like a kitchen the Pinkett Smith’s might have if they were poor.
Well, MTV has done it! They’ve shown that you can put on a star-studded spectacle in the middle of a global pandemic and proved beyond a doubt that it’s a very dumb idea. MTV dared to do what the other girls wouldn’t and risked everybody’s health by inviting confirmed disease vector Doja Cat (who really should have that glowing fish whistle looked at) and others to walk a virtual red carpet set up for last night’s MTV VMAs. Was it worth it? Well, let me put it this way. No.
