There’s no business like show business, and because of that, you don’t have to care about other people.
When Jerry Lewis, the Hollywood icon behind The Nutty Professor, agreed to sit down with The Hollywood Reporter, that didn’t necessarily mean he would be answering any questions. In fact, it means he'll be the one asking the questions, thank you very much.
When you can't sustain a conversation with your grandmother over the holidays, remember that she's not Jerry Lewis and be grateful https://t.co/3StgUIQrLP— Bryan Case (@bryancase41) December 19, 2016
Watch in horror as he wastes everyone’s time for seven minutes, parroting back whatever the last thing the interviewer asks him.
If nothing else, this should prepare you for your next job interview. If you find yourself in a rough patch, just start screaming "Why?" at the interviewer. It works.
The search for the real inventor of Bitcoin is over. According to the video description, the man in the video is the real deal:
Australian entrepreneur Craig Wright has publicly identified himself as Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto. His admission ends years of speculation about who came up with the original ideas underlying the digital cash system. Mr Wright has provided technical proof to back up his claim using coins known to be owned by Bitcoin's creator. Prominent members of the Bitcoin community and its core development team have also confirmed Mr Wright's claim.
Wright seems completely uninterested in fame or recognition. He gruffly insists that he wants to stay out of the spotlight, so why would he do an interview at all? His reasoning, in what he says will be his one and only interview, is to put an end to the controversy surrounding the identity of Bitcoin's inventor for the sake of his family and staff.
We hate to admit it, but this is too good to be true. This is a spectacular work of editing by a comedian inserting himself into a 2011 news report as an employee of "the house that beef built".
It's even been confirmed by the news station that did the story.
Stanford ran train over Michigan State on Saturday, bringing home an impressive 45-16 Rose Bowl victory.
Christian McCaffery put on a heroic performance as the game's star running-back, but the poor kid couldn't catch a break from an adrenaline-charged douche who did everything but grab the fu*king microphone and chuck it through the goalpost during McCaffery's interview.
Real-talk bro, GTFO. There's fan, superfan, and whatever the heck that guy in the background was. Don't be that guy.
If you could ask your future self anything, what would it be?
When Peter "Stoney" Emshwiller was 18, way back in 1977, he captured footage of himself asking questions to his invisible future self. He planned on combining footage in the future and getting some answers.
The short clip below shows the 56-year-old man reflecting on his successes and failures. It is surprisingly heartwarming.
Emshwiller plans on releasing a full-length version of the interview he'll call Later That Same Life, which is currently being funded.
Here's what the filmmaker had to say about the project:
A recent health scare (happily a false alarm) made me realize I ain't gonna live forever, and that it's time to finish this project. So I'm finally going to (gulp) face my younger self and record the other half of the conversation. Then I'll edit all the footage together. The final illusion should be a humorous, touching, sometimes combative, always revealing, totally impossible conversation between a bright-eyed teen and his own middle-aged self.
Fun fact: Shia Labeouf has been arrested five times.
Even more fun fact: He made a "terrific egg sandwich" during his last incarceration.
The actor and walking performance art piece gabs about his many run-ins with the law in Prison Ramen, a new book about celebrities and how being locked up has affected them.
Let's break down Shia's arrests from E! News:
That time he stole some Nike Cortezes.
"I have been incarcerated five times. The first time I was only nine years old. It was in Pacoima, California. I was arrested for stealing a pair of Nike Cortezes from a local shop and held for six hours," he writes.
That time he stole a Gameboy Pokémon.
"The second time I was eleven, in the city of Tujunga, California. I was arrested for stealing a Gameboy Pokémon from Kmart. That time, too, I was in a substation for about six hours," he continues.
That time he tried to stab his neighbor.
"The third time I was twenty, in Van Nuys, California. I tried to stab my neighbor and spent two days in jail. While I was there, I at least understood that being in jail is not the move," he admits. "It sucks ass."
That time he wouldn't leave Walgreen's and that time he disrupted a Broadway show.
"The fourth time I was in Chicago and I wouldn't leave Walgreen's, so I was taken to spend the night in jail. For some reason, I had the best sleep ever," he writes. "The most recent time was 2014, when I was twenty-eight and in New York City. I went to see the play Cabaret. I didn't behave very well during the performance and ended up spending twenty-five hours or so behind bars..."
Shia Labeouf: Rebel, Outlaw, The People's Criminal
Actress Leah Remini is here to tell us all that Scientology is weird as hell.
Thanks for telling us something literally everyone already knew?
In an exclusive interview with ABC News, Remini recounts her over 30 years with the cult and her decision to leave the Church of Scientology.
"The decision to leave is you giving up everything you've worked for your whole life...As time goes on, you start to lose touch with the real world," she says in a preview of the interview.
She is also critical of actor Tom Cruise, one of the most notable Scientologists.
The full interview will air on 20/20on Friday, October 30 at 10 p.m., ET
Remini should probably be careful, though. There's an OT level XVIII SUPREME BEING on the loose.
New footage of a 15-year-old Michael Phelps was uploaded today where the now-Olympic Gold medalist says his goal was to just compete in multiple events in Athens.
He went on to win 6 gold and 2 bronze medals during those summer Olympic games.
What a humble kid!
Phelps goes on to talk about other teenager stuff, like getting a driver's license and becoming the best swimmer in the world. Ya know, struggles we all have.
One thing we know for sure, Phelps started doing his signature lip-licking thing at a very early age.
And in 2015...
Charming everyman Tom Hanks must have been pretty bored yesterday.
He obviously had a hankering to do a Reddit AMA, even though he's already done one. But instead of waiting for Redditors to ask him again what kind of sandwich he prefers, the tenacious Tom went around to different subreddits to find questions he felt like answering.
The results are adorable.
He talked about what movie he made that he thinks deserves reconsideration.
Gave a weird six-word story:
Gave advice on what to buy to fill an unknown hole in your life:
Gave his favorite TV theme song:
Gave what he thought would have been the most underwhelming announcement from NASA on Mars
Gave his scariest movie moment:
Apparently, he really, really hates reality TV.
He recommended a book on Soviet history:
And gave advice on what to do when you're under the weather.
What a dad.
And in the end, he gave his favorite quote:
Thanks, Tom Hanks.
Joe Biden has many facets. He's America's uncle. He's a brazenly honest person. And he's also someone who has had a lot of tragedy befall him.
As rumors continue to swirl about a possible Biden presidential run, he came by The Late Show to talk to Stephen Colbert about many things.
What came next was a very candid and heartfelt talk about the recent loss of the Vice President's son Beau and the death of his first wife and daughter years ago. The talk was even more heightened when Biden compared his experience to Colbert's, who suffered his own harrowing childhood tragedy.
It's a really touching talk and one that casts and incredibly human light on the office of Vice President and Biden himself.
Here's part two of the interview:
And if you need a light hearted refresher after all the heavy talk, here's that picture of him giving a shoulder rub:
Step aside Cara Delevingne and take your bad interview with you. We've not a new contender for atrocious press junket of the summer.
Atlanta's Rock 100.5 Morning Show radio host Steven J. Rickman and interviewer Jason Bailey either aren't really into interviewing or are way too into making their guests uncomfortable. In this video, they spend most of the time asking some cringe-worthy questions of Kate Mara, who will play Sue Storm in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, and Michael B. Jordan, who will play Johnny Storm.
The two shock jocks launch into questions about race — always a good ice breaker for summer blockbuster actors. They could not understand how Mara and Jordan were to play siblings since one is black and the other is white.
Then, they laid into Mara about why she cut her hair short, because she it was so attractive before.This is a class move, which women appreciate. That was sarcasm.
Luckily, Rickman found a way to smooth the whole thing over by saying he's a "toe-man" and that Mara has great feet.
Enjoy your morning trainwreck!
And if you're curious, we've got the Fantastic Four trailer for you over at Geek Universe.
Well, that didn't go as planned.
Doing countless interviews for a press junket must be interminable, and it can only get worse when a early morning show anchors harangue you about your lack of energy.
22-year-old supermodel, turned actress, Cara Delevingne had such an interview last week with the crew from Good Day, Sacramento. She came on the show to promote her first movie, and the newest John Green adaptation, Paper Towns.
While it begins with some light sarcastic remarks, things swiftly take a turn towards a train wreck. After three questions, one of the anchors straight up asks her why she isn't more excited.
The anchors waste no time after Delevingne signs off to publicly throw some serious shade over the Suicide Squad actress.
She already responded to the awkwardness on Twitter.
Some people just don't understand sarcasm or the British sense of humour— Cara Delevingne (@Caradelevingne) July 29, 2015
Luckily, Zach Braff had her back.
@Caradelevingne or how it's condescending to ask an actress if she's read the book.— Zach Braff (@zachbraff) July 29, 2015
Ray Kaunisto of the Kalamazoo Wings had some fun in a recent post-game interview, slipping in a little reference to the 2001 comedy "Super Troopers."
He managed to get about 7 "meows" in his answers before the interview ended.
Maybe he's just excited for the sequel to come out, which Steve Lemme says will be partially funded with the help of Kickstarter with filming to begin sometime in 2015.
Comedian/activist Russell Brand was protesting on Downing Street this week with some east London residents who fear they might be evicted, when things got a little heated.
A US Investment firm called Westbrook Partners purchased their property earlier this year, and the company reportedly plans to refurbish the units and raise rent to nearly triple what it is now - effectively forcing the people out of their home.
A Channel 4 reporter asked Brand if he thought the super rich, like himself, were partially responsible by moving into the area and affecting the property market. According to the Daily Mail, he pays £5,000-a-month and lives less than a mile from the troubled estate.
Needless to say, Brand was not amused.
