Will Smith shares advice after Oscars slap

Published

on

Scandal-scarred actor Will Smith visited the Los Angeles Lakers’ training facility, where he shared words of wisdom with the underperforming team.

The visit is part of the NBA team’s Lakers’ Genius Talks series, which sees all kinds of celebrities imparting wisdom to the team and offer words of encouragement.

“Huge thank you to Will Smith, who joined the team to discuss strength through togetherness, and practicing gratitude in times of great challenge,” the team wrote on Instagram. “All themes in his forthcoming masterpiece film, ‘Collateral Beauty.’”

This isn’t the first time that Smith has tried to use his star power to boost a struggling team. In 2007, he gave a motivational speech to the Philadelphia Eagles before their game against the New England Patriots.

The Eagles went on to win that game 38-20. However, it’s unclear if Smith’s words will have the same effect on the Lakers, who are currently 2-13 and at the bottom of the Western Conference.

Smith is no stranger to controversy. He was hit with a 10-year ban from attending the Academy Awards after slapping host Chris Rock on stage during a skit in 2016.

The incident caused many to question whether or not Smith is still relevant in Hollywood. He is currently starring in the upcoming film “Collateral Beauty,” which is set for release on December 16. It remains to be seen if the film will be a success or not.

A police officer describing herself “Officer Naughty” has quit the force, after setting up her own porn site.

Constable Sam Helena was suspended after an Only Fans page went viral.

She calls herself a “good girl gone bad” and has previously faced disciplinary action for sharing raunchy videos of herself.

One clip shows the officer in a navy blue corset with a police badge. But the force believes her behaviour had brought the organisation into disrepute.

A Met Police spokeswoman says it is investigating the behaviour.

It’s understood Commissioner Mark Rowley has vowed to clamp down on misconduct and misogyny in the force.

Box Office disaster for Disney

Published

on

The results from the all-important Thanksgiving Box Office sales are in.

This year’s Thanksgiving movies proved to be a feast and famine for Walt Disney.

While “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” added $64 million to its domestic tally during the five-day time frame, Disney’s latest animated feature “Strange World” failed to lure in moviegoers, generating just $18.6 million.

That is the worst three-day opening for a Disney animated feature since 2000′s “The Emperor’s New Groove.”

It comes as CEO Bob Iger returns to the helm of the company, promising to restructure Disney in a way that puts creativity at the forefront.

Thanksgiving week is an important time for studios at the box office, usually bringing in around $250 million in ticket sales each year.
