5 WTF Moments From Will Ferrell"s Interview With Joaquin Phoenix!

When Interview Magazine was trying to decide who should interview Joaquin Phoenix, they really made a bold choice. Whether it was madness or genius we haven't quite figured out, but they chose Will Ferrell, who took his role as UN-seriously as Joaquin seems to take himself seriously. Related: Will Ferrell & Molly Shannon's Rose Bowl Parade Parody [...] When Interview Magazine was trying to decide who should interview Joaquin Phoenix, they really made a bold choice. Whether it was madness or genius we haven't quite figured out, but they chose Will Ferrell, who took his role as UN-seriously as Joaquin seems to take himself seriously. Related: Will Ferrell & Molly Shannon's Rose Bowl Parade Parody Tricked Quite A Few Amazon Users Between Will's trolling (?) silliness and Joaquin's persistent oddness, this is the strangest interview we've read in a long time! Ch-ch-check out the five strangest moments (below)! Joaquin Tries To End The Interview Immediately FERRELL: I'm assuming we've begun. I'm assuming the interview is now. PHOENIX: Or we could call it right now. Why not? Don't you hate when these interviews drag on and on, and it's like, "Fuck it, I've got things to do. I don't have time to sit around and read this bullshit." FERRELL: Let's just call it. That would look so funny in print. Will Asks Joaquin If He's A Little Bitch FERRELL: I love everything. I was recently thinking about your role in "Gladiator" [2000], which is a big studio movie. PHOENIX: Are you reading off prepared questions and trying to pretend that they're just popping into your head? FERRELL: Maybe wait to hear what I have to say: I was thinking about your role in that movie, and the reason why it works is because you're such a little bitch. PHOENIX: [laughs] I don't know if that's why the movie works. It probably had something to do with Ridley Scott. FERRELL: In your personal life, are you sometimes a little bitch? PHOENIX: Be more specific. FERRELL: Can you get a little bitchy if you're in a bad mood? PHOENIX: Definitely. You can ask Reilly about that. I think I tortured him the first couple of weeks, maybe the entire shoot. Joaquin Apparently Just Learned That Valentine's Day Was A Thing PHOENIX: Did you know that it's Valentine's Day? FERRELL: I did. I'm going to a group Valentine's Day dinner with my wife and four other friends. PHOENIX: That sounds awful. Can I ask you a question? What is Valentine's Day? FERRELL: It's a holiday, where if you have a loved one, you express love and affection in some way. For kids, they make little cards and they give them to their friends, and then some people just ignore it altogether. Will Asks Joaquin About Working With "M. Night Shyamalamadingdong" FERRELL: When you worked with M. Night Shyamalan, did you ever just once call him M. Night Shyamalamadingdong? PHOENIX: No. FERRELL: Okay. How would he have reacted if you were like, "Hey! M. Night Shyamalamadingdong! Can I ask you about this one camera shot?" PHOENIX: Having been teased most of my childhood about my name– FERRELL: You're sensitive to that area. PHOENIX: [laughs] Yeah. Joaquin Compares Having Children To Rotten Bananas PHOENIX: Having bananas around the house is like having kids. I don't have kids but I have nephews, and I grew up in a big family with a lot of kids, and I have to say that the smell of rotting bananas seemed to permeate the household throughout my entire childhood. [Ferrell laughs] And I feel like, if you wanted to know what it's like to have kids, you could get a banana and throw it on your bed for a few weeks, then you'd kind of know what you're going to be dealing with. Because bananas are basically—that's what toddlers eat, right? [Image via IPA/WENN.].....»»

The press secretary provided an update on Friday (May 4). PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Meghan Markle “We are now just over two weeks away from the wedding of His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales and Ms. Meghan Markle. As they have travelled around the UK in the months since their engagement last November, Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have been incredibly grateful for the support they have received from members of the public,” the update reads. “The crowds that have turned out in Nottingham, Cardiff, Brixton, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Belfast, Bath and elsewhere have given Ms. Markle a welcome to the United Kingdom marked by warmth, enthusiasm, and a real sense of fun.” Read the full outline inside… We are now just over two weeks away from the wedding of His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales and Ms. Meghan Markle. As they have travelled around the UK in the months since their engagement last November, Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have been incredibly grateful for the support they have received from members of the public. The crowds that have turned out in Nottingham, Cardiff, Brixton, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Belfast, Bath and elsewhere have given Ms. Markle a welcome to the United Kingdom marked by warmth, enthusiasm, and a real sense of fun. We said from the outset that Prince Harry and Ms. Markle were keen to make sure that members of the public would have the opportunity to feel part of the celebrations on their wedding day. This is their way of expressing their gratitude for the messages of support they have received from around the UK, the Commonwealth, Ms. Markle’s home country of the United States, and right around the world. In today’s briefing I want to share more details of what people can expect to see in the day’s leading up to the wedding, and on the day itself, and explain what the public can expect in Windsor. The first thing I would like to share is that Prince Harry and Ms. Markle are very much looking forward to welcoming Ms. Markle’s parents to Windsor for the wedding. Mr. Thomas Markle and Ms. Doria Ragland will be arriving in the UK in the week of the wedding, allowing time for Prince Harry’s family, including The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, to spend time with them before the big day. Both of the bride’s parents will have important roles in the wedding. On the morning of the wedding, Ms. Ragland will travel with Ms. Markle by car to Windsor Castle. Mr. Markle will walk his daughter down the aisle of St George’s Chapel. Ms. Markle is delighted to have her parents by her side on this important and happy occasion. In addition to having the support of The Queen, his father The Prince of Wales, and his brother Prince William as Best Man, Prince Harry is also keen to involve his mother’s family in his wedding. All three siblings of Diana, Princess of Wales will be in attendance and Lady Jane Fellowes will give the reading. Prince Harry and Ms. Markle both feel honoured that Lady Jane will be representing her family and helping to celebrate the memory of the late Princess on the wedding day. As we said back in November, this wedding will be guided by tradition, allowing everyone to celebrate what makes Royal Weddings so special, but also one which reflects the personalities of Prince Harry and Ms. Markle. We have been announcing details over the last couple of months and in the final week ahead of the wedding you can expect to hear more about the arrangements, including: The Instrument of Consent; Details of the Bridesmaids and Page Boys; The work of florist Philippa Craddock and the Crown Estate gardeners who have been growing and preparing the flowers that will fill the church; An update from Claire Ptak, the baker who will make the wedding cake, and the chefs who have been working in the Palace kitchens to make the final preparations and; We will publish the full Order of Service on the website on Saturday morning so members of the public can follow the service at home. I will now take you through the high level outline of what you can expect to see from the evening of Friday 18th May. The key moment for the day before will be the arrival of the bride at her accommodation. We expect this to happen early evening. On the day itself we expect Windsor to be very busy. The council has worked with partners including Thames Valley Police to plan what will be a fantastic day of celebrations. As the Royal Borough of Windsor has said, work is well underway to ensure the occasion is a memorable and joyous one for all involved and they are working closely with a wide range of partners. Rail operators will be putting on extra trains and there will be park and walk and park and float services to help people get into town. Visitors are encouraged to plan ahead and book all travel arrangements early so they can make the most of their trip. I would very much appreciate the media’s assistance in spreading the message that visitors to Windsor will have a chance to be part of a very special day, but those who will be heading to the town really do need to plan their journeys carefully. The Royal Borough has confirmed that preparations include: A 6,000 space pre-booked car parking area at the Review Ground, just off the Long Walk; Food stalls and facilities, including big screens showing live footage of the wedding and Procession, on the Long Walk and in Alexandra Gardens; Viewing areas along the whole Procession Route (Castle Hill, High Street, Sheet Street, Kings Road, Albert Road and the Long Walk); A team of 140 Royal Borough Ambassadors have volunteered to help steward the event and assist visitors throughout the day; The town centre will be decorated with bunting and ceremonial banners along parts of the Procession Route and; Live entertainment from local groups throughout the town centre. In order to make sure everyone can get through expected traffic, the members of the public who have been invited to be inside the grounds of Windsor Castle for the wedding will be arriving from around 0900hrs. As a reminder, 1,200 people have been nominated by Lord Lieutenants from across the country for their work supporting their communities. Many of these people are sharing their stories with their local media and supporters – the couple are very pleased that their wedding has provided a platform to celebrate the inspiring work of community and youth leaders from around the UK. The first thing these people gathered will see on the morning of the wedding will be the arrival of guests between 0930hrs and 1100hrs. Guests will be arriving at the Round Tower by coach and will be seen walking to the South Door of St George’s Chapel. Members of The Royal Family will begin to arrive from 1120hrs, and enter St George’s Chapel via the Galilee Porch. Some will be on foot, and others will arrive by car. Prince Harry and his brother The Duke of Cambridge will arrive at St George’s Chapel most likely by foot and will enter via the West Steps. This will allow Their Royal Highnesses to acknowledge all of the people gathered in the Castle precincts, including the 200 charity representatives gathered in the Horseshoe Cloister at the bottom of the steps. Also around the time Royal Family arrivals begin, a pooled media facility will cover Ms. Markle and Ms. Ragland’s departure from the bride’s overnight location. We expect the journey into the Castle to take them along part of the Long Walk, allowing members of the public gathered there to see the car as it passes. There will also be a brief stop at the Castle where Ms. Ragland will head onto the Chapel and Ms. Markle will be joined by some of the Bridesmaids and Page Boys before she continues her journey to the church, where she will enter via the West Steps. The Service will take around an hour, and we look forward to announcing more details of this in the weeks ahead. After the Service has concluded, the newly married couple will process out of the church and acknowledge the 200 representatives of Prince Harry’s charities gathered in the Cloister. The couple are delighted that these people who will be such an important part of their official work in the years to come will be the first people they see after their wedding. As the couple step into their Carriage, close family members will gather on the West Steps to wave them off on their Procession. As a reminder, we expect the Carriage Procession to take just under 25 minutes. Prince Harry and Ms. Markle are very much looking forward to this part of the day. It will be their chance to express their gratitude for the goodwill and warm wishes they have received from all quarters in the months since their engagement. Members of the congregation will file out of the church onto the grass to see the start of the Procession before walking to the reception at St George’s Hall. All guests will be attending the reception. The public elements of the event will be over at this stage. The final thing you can expect to see is the Bride and Groom departing Windsor Castle for the evening reception at Frogmore House. In the days that follow, we will facilitate interviews with some of those who have been involved in the wedding, as happened in 2011, for example with the hairdresser and dressmaker. The formal photographs, which will be taken by Alexi Lubomirski, will be released during the week......»»

The Bravo starlet revealed the news to her costars on Friday while filming the RHOC season 12 reunion. Related: Shannon Beador Hospitalized After Blood Gushes Out Of Her Eye! The feng shui-enthusiast told the publication she "felt alone" in her marriage, and the two simply couldn't make it work. "It's heartbreaking for me and my daughters that this is the road that had to be taken but it's the only way... I felt alone in my marriage. You can do what you can to keep your family together, but you have to have willing parties. You need two people to make a marriage work, and that just wasn't happening in our relationship." Although painful, Shannon had to make the best decision for her and her daughters: Sophie, 15, and twins Stella and Adeline, 12. "As a mother, I want to be a good role model for my daughters... Three years ago I was proud of what I showed them, because I fought for keeping my family together after infidelity. As the last year went by, it's been extremely difficult and painful to watch the show, because clearly I was in denial about what was going on in my marriage. I was taking things out on other people instead of at home... As a mother you keep thinking about your daughters and you have to say, ‘This is an unhealthy environment.' Not only is it unhealthy for me, but it's unhealthy for my girls, too. They deserve a happy and joyful home, and I am providing that for them now."' As seen on the hit show, the couple hit a rough patch during season 10 when David had an affair. Although they renewed their vows in 2016, the OC twosome grew distant. While David spent more time working out, Shannon battled a stress-induced 40-lb. weight gain after costar Vicki Gunvalson made allegations about her husband beating her. Despite the drama, both parties want to stay on good terms for the sake of their family. "We are doing our best to be amicable for our children... That's our primary concern, to act in the best interest of our daughters." Overall, Shannon is confident she will overcome any obstacle in her way. "I'm a strong person... At this point it's scary, when you're 53 years old, to be out there on your own. But I intend to show myself and my daughters that it can be done. I'm ready to get the old Shannon back, that's for sure." In her own words: when life gives you lemons, put nine in a bowl! [Image via FayesVision/WENN.].....»»

More than 22.4 million viewers in total got up VERY early on Saturday morning across America to watch the Royal Wedding -- which marks a total of about four million MORE Americans tuning in to see it this year than their British counterparts! Related: Re-Live Meghan's Full, Memorable Day!! According to Nielsen Media reports out this afternoon in THR that center on royal wedding viewership across the networks, NBC came away the big winner of the royal rumble with more than 6.42 million viewers watching throughout the day! They were followed up by ABC, who boasted 6.38 million, and then CBS at 4.79 million. Fox News boasted 2 million viewers, as well, which beat CNN's 1.8 million watchers, and MSNBC's tally at just under one million. All in all not a bad day for the Americans and our TV networks, though, especially because our audience turned out to be tuned in a bit more than our British counterparts (just in gross totals, and not relative to overall population size, of course!). Obviously, Meghan Markle's status as an American and being involved in the ceremony may have helped the big day, at least on this side of the pond. Related: Where Were The Spice Girls?! For some context, the previous royal wedding -- 2011's ceremony between Prince William and Kate Middleton -- average nearly 23 million viewers in total across all networks. When you add in some of the smaller splinter networks and shows (say, HBO's Cord and Tish hosting their own version of the actual royal wedding), it's likely that Prince Harry and Meghan will surpass -- narrowly -- Kate and Prince William.

As you can imagine, Jimmy Fallon's first night back on his show Monday following the death of his mother Gloria was incredibly difficult.

Taking to Twitter following the taping, one of Jimmy's writers/producers wrote the story behind the comedian's emotional return -- and how Taylor Swift stepped in without hesitation to make the episode extra special. Related: Taylor Swift Announces 2018 Reputation Tour Dates! Follow along with Mike DiCenzo's telling of events, and grab a tissue or four, (below): A few words (i.e. a thread) about tonight's show. It was our first show back after Jimmy's mom passed away... — Mike DiCenzo (@mikedicenzo) November 14, 2017 It was a really tough day for our whole staff. A lot of us knew his mom Gloria, and she was the best. The best. She loved the show, she loved all of us, and most of all, she loved Jimmy. — Mike DiCenzo (@mikedicenzo) November 14, 2017 They talked on the phone every day. As Jimmy said, she was his biggest fan. — Mike DiCenzo (@mikedicenzo) November 14, 2017 And as @Questlove said, Jimmy is not only our boss, he's our family. We love him. So we were devastated for him last week, and we were feeling for him today. — Mike DiCenzo (@mikedicenzo) November 14, 2017 I'm sure today was especially tough for Jimmy. The fact that he came out, stood there, and did a normal monologue for the crowd is a testament to how strong he is. — Mike DiCenzo (@mikedicenzo) November 14, 2017 But at the desk, you could hear his voice break when talking about our musical guest Taylor Swift, and that's because he knew what he was about to say... — Mike DiCenzo (@mikedicenzo) November 14, 2017 Jimmy's words about his mom were beautiful. "Mom, I'll never stop trying to make you laugh. I love you." I was crying. We all were. — Mike DiCenzo (@mikedicenzo) November 14, 2017 The story about his mom squeezing his hand 3 times to say "I love you" when he was a kid, and then him squeezing her hand in the hospital - he hadn't told any of us that story... More on that in a second. — Mike DiCenzo (@mikedicenzo) November 14, 2017 First, a quick word about Taylor Swift. She was not scheduled to do our show today. But we wanted something special for this first show back, so we asked her on a complete whim, since she had been in town doing SNL. She said yes with zero hesitation. — Mike DiCenzo (@mikedicenzo) November 14, 2017 She sang "New Year's Day." No one had heard it. Suddenly she sings the line, "Squeeze my hand 3 times in the back of the taxi." I nearly gasped. Tears. I think everyone in the audience started sobbing. — Mike DiCenzo (@mikedicenzo) November 14, 2017 I could see Jimmy silhouetted at his desk dabbing his eyes with a tissue. We all lost it. It was a beautiful coincidence in a beautiful performance. "Hold on to your memories, they will hold on to you," Taylor sang. — Mike DiCenzo (@mikedicenzo) November 14, 2017 That hug between Jimmy and Taylor after the song was 100% real emotion.

Fallon, of course, had been bedside with his 68-year-old mother Gloria before she passed away on Saturday after being quite ill for some time, according to reports. Related: Jimmy Fallon Doesn't 'Care That Much About Politics' And earlier today, Fallon himself shared a very simple, but poignant, sentiment about the death of his mother (below): "Today I lost my biggest fan." Ugh. Tears. So, so painful -- especially considering she was just 68 years old. No word yet on when exactly Fallon may be back on air with new episodes, but obviously it's more important to take care of family and mourn the passing of someone so close to him. Other entertainers have obviously felt the same way as they shared the love today (below): Mom is the first audience and the best. Remembering Jimmy Fallon and his family in our prayers today. — Stephen Colbert (@StephenAtHome) November 5, 2017 Jimmy's mom was full of energy, fun, a hearty laugh & twinkle in her eye. The apple didn't fall far from the tree. Love to all the Fallons — Andy Cohen (@Andy) November 5, 2017 Sad, unfortunate stuff. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Jimmy. [Image via WENN.].....»»

ICYMI: First Lady Of Zimbabwe Granted Diplomatic Immunity Following Alleged Brutal Assault Against Three Women

Remind us to never piss off the First Lady of Zimbabwe. ICYMI, Grace Mugabe allegedly attacked three women a week ago while trying to hunt down her two sons, Robert Jr. (25) and Chatunga Bellarmine (21), at the Capital 20 West hotel in South Africa. Now THAT's a helicopter mom. While only model Gabriella Engels has come [...] Remind us to never piss off the First Lady of Zimbabwe. ICYMI, Grace Mugabe allegedly attacked three women a week ago while trying to hunt down her two sons, Robert Jr. (25) and Chatunga Bellarmine (21), at the Capital 20 West hotel in South Africa. Now THAT's a helicopter mom. While only model Gabriella Engels has come forward to identify herself as one of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe's wife's victims, two other women also suffered injuries in the violent rampage. Supposedly, the three girls had been hanging out with the Mugabe boys in a hotel room when Grace apparently busted in armed with an electrical cord. It's said the two men fled the hotel room as they heard their mother approaching. Cowards. Related: Mystikal Turns Himself In To Face Rape Charges! Per Engels, Mrs. Mugabe was accompanied by 10 bodyguards and hotel security guards. At the time of the attack, Gabriella had no clue who her attacker was or why she and her friends were being beaten. In a recent interview, Gabriella dished: "I really thought she was going to kill me ... From the moment she stormed into the room she was ready to murder someone. The electrical cord-cable was tightly wrapped around her hands. No one could stop her. The guards and hotel security guards just stood there and watched as she whipped me with the cord and dragged me across the floor by my hair." Oh man. The electrical cord also caused a massive gash on Engels' forehead, a wound which could jeopardize her modeling career. The up-and-comer added: "I remember everything that had happened ... the traditional attire Grace was wearing, the shiny gold slippers and an expensive blue bag she was carrying ... The terror on my friends' faces as they grabbed a blanket to protect themselves from the beating ... How I had to kneel down in order to escape from her, and the blood dripping from my face. I remember it all. I'm still terrified when I think about what happened. For the past few days I was even scared to go out in public. I do not know if this is the end of my modeling career. Right now I am focusing on the criminal charges. Maybe I will sue her at a later stage." Although Gabriella's criminal case may have some bumps in the road as Grace has reportedly been granted diplomatic immunity. The three victims met the Mugabe brothers while celebrating a 21st birthday at the hotel's Taboo nightclub. However, the trio did NOT get along with a group of girls the men were spending time with, so they decided to leave the bash. Unfortunately, they had to return to the hotel when they realized they left a jacket behind. Related: Woman Reveals Her Underage Sexual Relationship With R. Kelly A friend told the three ladies the jacket was in a hotel room and invited them all over to retrieve it. An unnamed pal of Engels' explained: "We had no interaction with the Mugabe brothers at all on Sunday. We were literally there for 15 minutes. The only thing we managed to do was smoke a cigarette on the balcony. Then our friend asked us to turn off the music. Someone important was coming. This lady stormed into the room with more than 10 bodyguards and hotel security guards, demanding to know the whereabouts of her son, who she calls Bellarmine." When the First Lady stormed in, the group was unable to tell her where her sons were and that's when she started to lash out. The alleged victim continued: "She dragged me by my hair and held me tight. She slashed me viciously with the electrical cord. She then dragged me by my hair across the floor and threw me on a couch where she forced me to call our mutual friend and Bellarmine's best friend, but their phones were off. She continued beating me with the cord; I was rescued by the hotel manager, who rushed to the room after hearing my screams for help." To make matters worse, there may be a fourth victim, as a waitress was allegedly pushed by one of Mugabe's sons running away from the scene. The woman was taken to a hospital, where she ultimately miscarried the baby she was carrying. The Engels family have also accused the Mugabe clique of offering up a cash settlement to make this all go away. The AfriForum is planning to challenge Mrs. Mugabe's immunity as she was not in South Africa on an official visit. We're sure this isn't the last we've heard of this case!!
