Hugo Weaving And Paul Bettany Reveal Just How Little Effort They Put Into Voice Acting On TRANSFORMERS And IRON MAN

At this year’s Oscars, Chris Rock spent a few minutes joking about how ridiculous voice over work is in Hollywood. Today we have two examples of exactly what Rock was describing from two of the biggest franchises of the decade!

At this year’s Oscars, Chris Rock spent a few minutes before announcing the Best Animated Feature award joking about how ridiculous voice over work is in Hollywood.  Take a look below: 

Hysterical on one end, but today we have two examples of exactly what Rock was describing from two of the biggest franchises of the decade! 

The first example comes from actor Hugo Weaving, who voiced the character of Megatron in all three TRANSFORMERS films.  Despite Weaving being one of the most dedicated performers in his field today, he admitted that when it came to those films, he just didn’t care in the least: 

“It was one of the only things I’ve ever done where I had no knowledge of it, I didn’t care about it, I didn’t think about it,” the English actor said. “They wanted me to do it. In one way, I regret that bit. I don’t regret doing it, but I very rarely do something if it’s meaningless. It was meaningless to me, honestly. I don’t mean that in any nasty way. I did it.”

Weaving said that during his time working on the trilogy, he never even met director Michael Bay, and didn’t even bother to read anything besides his own lines:

“But, my link to that and to Michael Bay is so minimal. I have never met him,” he continued. “I was never on set. I’ve seen his face on Skype. I know nothing about him, really. I just went in and did it. I never read the script. I just have my lines, and I don’t know what they mean. That sounds absolutely pathetic! I’ve never done anything like that, in my life. It’s hard to say any more about it than that, really.”

But Weaving isn’t the only actor to not read his script.  In a new interview with Digital Spy, British actor Paul Bettany admits that even though he provided the voice of Tony Stark’s super computer, J.A.R.V.I.S., in the IRON MAN films, he has yet to see either movie, or even read an entire script!

‘They don’t send me the whole script so I have no idea what the movies are about.’

The 41-year-old actor says that he almost feels like a crook for the small amount of work he did, seemingly mimicking Rock’s points in the process:

“I feel like a pirate. This is robbery. I walk in, I say some lines on a piece of paper for two hours, and then they give me a bag of money and I leave and I go about my day…I sort of feel guilty, because at least acting can be exhausting, with long hours… but I do nothing! And I’ve never seen one of them.”

Makes you think a bit, doesn’t it?

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

Published

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

Ya like my hair ?

A post shared by Cardi B (@iamcardib) on

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.

Check It Out, Joe Jonas Has Shocked His Fans With His New Look

Published

I’m a sucker for his new do.

It doesn’t matter if you are more of a “Nick” or a “Kevin” or a “Joe” when it comes to loving the Jonas Brothers. All that matters is that you all agree with me that Joe is obviously the most attractive of the three brothers and that’s just a fact. I’m sorry but I don’t make the rules.

The 31-year old stunned fans today earlier today when he debuted a shocking new look on his Instagram. Sporting a black t-shirt and those signature dark, furry-Murray eyebrows, Joe flashed his new platinum blond buzzcut. I know I might be in the minority here but I do love when these Hollywood hotties switch it up and do the blond thing. I loved it on Adam Levine. I loved it on Zac Efron. I even found myself oddly drawn to the OG platinum stud, James Michael Tyler aka Gunther from Friends.

Perhaps the new do is a part of Joe’s daddy-makeover as he and his wife, Sophie Turner, recently welcomed their first child, Willa. A source told ET “Sophie and Joe have named their daughter Willa. The couple’s bond has gotten even stronger since the addition of their daughter. Although circumstances are different right now because of the [coronavirus] pandemic, Joe was there for the birth of his daughter. The couple is happy they now have time to spend at home with their daughter and get used to their new life together.”

Be still my heart.
