Will Smith and Josh Brolin were in Madrid yesterday for the Spain premiere of ‘Men in Black III’, and not only did they have to go to the Madrid Tennis Open but they got paraded around like assholes to hit a giant tennis ball with a giant tennis racket.
Josh Brolin seems cool, so it’s no ok that they did this to him, but Will Smith seems like a dick so I bet the studio lives for these moments. “Ok’a Wheel Smith, now you’a putta on’a dis diaper and we’a bang’a you wife’a.”
That probably sounded more Italian but you get the idea.
It’s hard to believe this is same movie where Will Smiths insufferable ego made everyone miserable, and whose director admits that they started filming while the script was still being written, in fact they “didn’t have a finished second or third act”, which might have been “a really stupid idea.” To which special effects legend Rick Baker adds:
“We had a writer actually on the soundstage writing the words moments before the guys had to say them. I don’t think that’s any way to make a movie.”
Well there’s certainly no evidence of hastily written dialogue in the trailer. For example, when Will Smith is told that his partner has apparently been dead for 40 years, he yells “What?” And sure, every other character is an interchangeable straight man for Smith to overreact too, but movies are more fun when no one else talks except for one guy who goes around yelling.
Sony released the first trailer for ‘Men In Black III’ this morning, the one with Will Smith going back in time for some vague reason, and with handsome Josh Brolin playing not-handsome Tommy Lee Jones at least well enough to scare any girl planning to marry handsome Josh Brolin.
FUN FACT: MIB3 is co-written by Etan Cohen, which is not “Ethan Coen” spelled wrong, and who presumably gets jobs because of real life versions of this.
Will Smith is part of the new ownership group that bought the Philadelphia 76ers, and today in one of their first acts they announced they were cutting ticket prices on over 9,000 seats from $54 to $29. Unless there are actually games, in which case the price goes back up to $54.
As you no doubt heard, the new issue of In Touch came out yesterday and claimed that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett were separating after 13 years of marriage. Will and Jada quickly issued the worlds least convincing denial, but if they had known what the article actually said (via Gossip Cop), they probably wouldn’t have even bothered.
The magazine alleges that Jada “destroyed” Anthony’s marriage to Jennifer Lopez (as well as her own) by sneaking around with Anthony behind her husband’s back.
Will supposedly uncovered her “ultimate betrayal” when he caught Jada with Anthony (her “HawthoRNe” co-star) in the Smiths’ Hidden Hills mansion.
Smith’s “suspicions” were “painfully confirmed” when he came to the house unannounced “under the cover of darkness” … Smith “left the house crying” and was “very upset” because Anthony was supposedly inside with Jada.
The following day “it was as if all hell had broken loose” with Jada moving some of her belongings out of the couple’s home and Will allegedly firing staffers he suspected of “covering up” for her.
Oohh, yeah, yeah, and after that JLo and Jada wrestled and fell into the pool at the country club, while Willow fell deeper under the spell of the schools new bad boy Jericho Hawk, and other insane shit that only happens on General Hospital.
LADY GAGA – will play herself on ‘The Simpsons’, “to cheer up a dejected Lisa through the power of speech, song, and a flash mob.” The message being: if you’re feeling low, try annoying the hell out of people. (ew)
WILL SMITH AND JADA PINKETT – were reportedly broken up, but this morning Wills son Trey tweeted that it wasn’t true, and now they’ve issued a statement saying, “Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false. We are still together, and our marriage is intact.” Oohh. “Intact”. What a romantic word. I guess things really are going great. “My wife is very suitable”, Will went on to explain. (twitter, access hollywood)
MEGAN FOX – confirmed that she’s having the tattoo on her forearm of Marilyn Monroe removed, saying, “She was a negative person, she was disturbed, bipolar. I do not want to attract this kind of negative energy in my life.” Oh relax Megan. It’s not Ed Gein for Christs sake. (us)
BEN AFFLECK AND JENNIFER GARNER – are expecting their third child to go along with their daughters Violet, 5, and Seraphina, 2. No word yet on if its a boy or a girl, or what stripper/wish granting cartoon mouse they’ll name them after. (people)
