Many of us probably figured that Marisa Tomei’s accountants were going to have a busy weekend with amending her 2019 tax return to include the extremely generous charitable donation of bestowing her Oscar-winning movie star presence on that King of Staten Island movie that starred Pete Davidson and was directed by Judd Apatow. Because during an interview with Rolling Stone, Marisa, who played a fictionalized version of Pete’s mom in King of Staten Island, said that she recently talked to her movie son Pete about the movie and asked him, “I never got paid for that. Did you? In this age of transparency, can we talk?” But we can put off submitting Marisa Tomei’s application for sainthood for her volunteer work in a Pete Davidson movie because she was paid after all. Marisa clarified shit in a statement to People, saying that she did get paid, she was just talking about “arcane contractual details.” Translation: “I was talking about movie star stuff you wouldn’t understand, dahlings!”
Marisa Tomei Had To Ask Pete Davidson If He’s Been Paid For “The King Of Staten Island” Because She Has Not
I don’t know if Judd Apatow is so used to having his daughters in all his projects he forgot that some actors actually expect to get paid their work or what, but according to Marisa Tomei, she has yet to be paid for her role as Pete Davidson’s mom in 2020’s The King of Staten Island. In addition to being the writer and director, Judd’s production company, Apatow Productions, shares producing credit with Universal Pictures. In a new interview for Rolling Stone, Marisa was asked what it’s like working with Pete (and we’ll get to that in a bit, for now, I’ll just say Kim Kardashian should be on high alert), who she had just been talking to that day. Marisa told RS that she asked Pete if he’d been paid forTKOSI yet because she had not. She didn’t say whether or not he had, but I think we can all agree that SOMEBODY better run Marisa her damn check TODAY. And they need to add a couple of extra zeros on it for wasting her valuable time.
They really could just do the theme songs as far as I’m concerned, but ABC is going all out again for Live In Front Of A Studio Audience which will air next Wednesday. Last year, LIFOASA presented All In The Family and The Jeffersons. This year, according to Deadline, AITF is coming back, but they’ve replaced The Jeffersons with Why Ain’t Florida Evans Thicc? I mean, Good Times featuring Viola Davis as Florida Evans and Andre Braugher as the doomed James Evans.
There was a lot of messy fashion at the SAG Awards last night (prepare yourself accordingly after that jump below!). But obviously any effort that was put in was immediately cancelled out the second Kate Hudson returned to the scene of last year’s fashion crime and fully outdid herself in a fluffy Valentino vision of countrified love. I say love because, duh, the hearts a’plenty, but also because I love this dress. What’s not to love? Black velvet (check), pink beauty pageant chiffon (check), a high-lace neckline with corresponding bib of ruffles (checking furiously). The only thing missing is a pink parasol. Kate probably left it in the limo for fear of being mistaken for Miley Cyrus in a knock-off production of My Fair Lady called Decent Lookin’ Gal.
Here’s who else showed up and sizzled eyeballs with style.
At last night’s L.A. premiere of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Hannibal Buress, who plays Coach Wilson in it, walked the red carpet and did some interviews. The only problem is, despite what that lower third super would lead you to believe, that’s not Hannibal Buress, obviously.
“Gee whiz, if only I was bitten by a radioactive lunch lady, then I’d have the power to save my mouth from this grody cafeteria pizza!”
The news that we were getting a fresh-outta-Pampers Spider-Man was a major clue that the latest Spider-Man reboot was going to feel like a superhero movie released by the Disney Channel. Sony released the first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming during Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, and it’s definitely giving off that vibe. Tom Holland is 20 years old in real life, but they really high school-ed up this version of Peter Parker. It doesn’t help that his haircut makes him look like a “15-year-old at Sears Portrait Studio with his mom.”
The only way I feel comfortable referring to this Peter Parker as “Spider-Man” would be if Marisa Tomei’s Aunt May opened the movie by showing the audience pictures from Peter Parker’s bar mitzvah. “And this is the day Peter became a man. So technically it’s not weird to call him Spider-Man. Now on with the show!”
We also get a look at Zendaya, who may or may not be playing Mary Jane Watson, and she’s giving me the so-edgy aspiring Instagram stylist version of a young Enid Coleslaw and a vintage copy of Sassy. We also get to see Michael Keaton as The Vulture, which feels a little weird. I mean, it’s a grown-ass man telling a teen boy he’s going to kill him. That sounds like the kind of fight that would happen in the parking lot of a Walmart between the cart boy and the uptight owner of the Audi he joy rode a cart into.
Here’s Zendaya earlier this week at the opening of the Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen.
