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?

Kelly Ripa Shared A Sexy Picture Of Marc Consuelos And Warns More Male Nudity To Come!

Published

July’s heat ain’t got nothing on Mr. Consuelos.

Ok let’s be honest when someone shares a thirsty photo of their new man on social media it’s cause for an immediate eye roll…unless of course you’re Kelly Ripa showing off your hunky husband of over twenty years in which case that eye roll turns into tongue wag.

On Wednesday, the Emmy award winning talk show host took to Instagram to show off a photo of her incredibly buff husband Marc Consuelos. The 49-year old actor has bulked up for a two reasons; 1. He plays an ex-fighter on Kingdom which is now available for streaming on Netflix and 2. I needed a new wallpaper on my phone. In any event, the impeccable physique is obviously stunning as is the affection this couple shares after their nearly 25 years of marriage. In her caption Ripa wrote:

“KINGDOM is out on @netflix today! Warning: this show is brilliantly written, beautifully acted and jam packed with male nudity 🔥🔥🔥 you’ve been warned.”

Now that’s a heat advisory I can get behind. Check out the hunky photo below and tune into Kingdom on Netflix!

Celebrate The Last Day Of Pride Month With Megan Hilty’s Beautiful Rendition Of ‘The Rainbow Connection’

Published

🎶For all the lovers, the dreamers and LBGT.🎶

With only a few hours left to celebrate the magic of Pride month, the LBGTQ+ heavens opened up and sent down one more gift. Megan Hilty.

The Smash star gave a special Pride performance of the appropriately-themed classic “The Rainbow Connection” for ABC’s LA! Pride and of course she crushed it. The song was first sung by Kermit the Frog in the 1979 film The Muppet Movie and shares a message of hope and inspiration which obviously resonates strongly with the LBGTQ+ community. The only way Hilty’s rendition would be better is if she was covered in Muppet fur honestly.

The Broadway belter captioned the post with a sweet sentiment which read “Happy #pride🌈 kids! It doesn’t end today. Be proud of who you are every day of the year, and find your rainbow connection. 💕✨” And she’s right, every day should be filled with Pride!

Check out the moving performance below and Happy Pride y’all!

Here Are Some Of The Funniest Reactions To Kim Kardashian’s New Horse

Published

She ain’t no pedestrian equestrian.

Kim Kardashian West is so rich. How rich is she? Kim Kardashian West is so rich that even her horse has a perfectly laid hair do.

On Monday night, Kim shared a series of photos from North’s 7th birthday party which was celebrated “Wyoming style.” The cowboy themed party included such extravagances as a cowboy hat shaped cake, customized ATV’s and a race around the family’s go-kart track because of course they have a go-kart track on their ranch. None of those things received nearly as much attention as Kim’s tweet about North’s brand new “Freesian” horse however, and let’s just say the internet never disappoints.

The Tweet:

The spellcheck.

The probable.

The ingenuity.

The relatable.

The sad truth.

The reason I love the internet.
