It’s Will Smith‘s turn to take a seat at the red table, and he’s not holding back.

The 50-year-old actor is the latest guest on wife Jada Pinkett Smith‘s popular Facebook Watch show Red Table Talk, where he opens up to his partner, their daughter Willow, 17, and his mother-in-law Adrienne Banfield-Jones, the third co-host of the show.

In the exclusive clip for PEOPLE above, Smith gets candid about a time he felt he was failing Pinkett Smith, 47, in their marriage.

“There was a period where mommy woke up and cried 45 days straight, I started keeping track,” Smith says to Willow, with Pinkett Smith jokingly replying that he “missed some day.”

“Every morning,” Smith pressed on. “I think that’s the worst I’ve ever felt in our marriage. I was failing miserably.”

Red Table Talk has been a success since starting out earlier this year, with a 2018 People’s Choice Award nomination for daytime talk show. On the series, Pinkett Smith revealed several bombshells including her 17-year-long feud with Gabrielle Union, that she began dating Smith before he was divorced from his first wife and her “issues with hair loss.”

Red Table Talk returns to Facebook Watch on Oct. 22 with all new episodes featuring Smith, Ellen Pompeo, Leah Remini and more. Following in the footsteps of earlier episodes, Pinkett Smith will tackle topics such as mental health, forgiveness, divorce, race and domestic violence.

Patton Oswalt Recalls 2016 Emmys Win After Heartbreak of Wife’s Death: My Life Is ‘Pure Gold’ Now

What a difference two years has made for Patton Oswalt.

The comedian, 49, looked back on how his life has changed after Monday’s 2018 Emmy Awards, sharing touching side-by-side photos on Twitter.

One photo showed Oswalt after the 2016 Emmys, sitting alone with his trophy outside of an Arby’s.

Though he won his first Emmy that year — an outstanding writing for a variety special honor given to him in celebration of his Netflix special, Talking for Clapping — the star had a sullen expression on his face. The awards show followed not long after his late wife, crime writer Michelle McNamara, had died unexpectedly in her sleep in April 2016 at age 46.

Oswalt’s second photo was far more joyful. Sitting outside of the same Arby’s, he was lacking the Emmy — having lost at Monday’s show in the same category, where he was nominated for his Netflix special, Annihilation. But his wife Meredith Salenger sat beside him, locking lips with the star in the picture.

“Two years ago versus today,” Oswalt captioned the images. “No Emmy this time, but a life that’s turned pure gold thanks to @MeredthSalenger.”

Missing from the photo was Oswalt’s daughter Alice Rigney, 9 — his only child with McNamara. She was instrumental in helping Oswalt through his grief after McNamara’s passing.

“If I hadn’t had a daughter and my wife died, we wouldn’t be talking right now. I’m not saying I would be dead, but I would be a shut-in alcoholic,” he revealed in a 2017 interview with Playboy. “Everything would have shut down. I wouldn’t have been about anything. But with Alice, it was and is ‘You got to get up.’ ”

Both Alice and McNamara got a shout-out in Oswalt’s 2016 Emmy’s speech. “I want to share this with two people,” he said. “One of them is my daughter Alice, waiting at home. The other one is… waiting somewhere else, I hope.”

Oswalt tied the knot with Salenger, 48, in November 2017, four months after their engagement. The duo had gone public with their romance that June.

“I’ve only ever felt that level of joy once before in my life, and it was so profound and perfect it felt greedy to ever wish for it again,” Oswalt told PEOPLE exclusively following the couple’s nuptials.

He added, “But I did, so now all I can do is show Meredith a level of gratitude and love that’s greater than the joy she’s brought me, and my daughter Alice. Because this is a new level of joy, and a new life, and I’ll always strive to deserve it.”

Michael Moore Recalls The Time Bill O’Reilly Accosted Him On The Street

Michael Moore is feeling pretty good after Bill O’Reilly was dumped by Fox News following multiple allegations of sexual harassment. 

On Thursday, while speaking after a special screening of his 2002 film “Bowling for Columbine” at the Tribeca Film Festival, the Moore recalled how O’Reilly once randomly accosted him on the street. 

Moore told the audience of one time when O’Reilly was “passing me by on the street in a limo, sees me, tells the driver to screech to a halt, and he jumps out of the car, yelling at me. Someone happened to capture a picture of the moment. Look at O’Reilly’s face ― it’s the scariest frikkin’ thing. But I’m still standing and he’s not,” he said. 

Yes, there’s somehow photographic evidence of such an event, which Moore tweeted out on Wednesday. 

Moore famously went head-to-head with O’Reilly after the release of Moore’s 2004 documentary “Fahrenheit 9/11,” in which the former Fox News host began the interview by asking Moore, “You want to apologize to the president now or later?”

New Nina Simone Documentary Recalls Past Struggles While Echoing Present

While watching “What Happened, Miss Simone?” — a new documentary about the legendary singer-songwriter Nina Simone — it’s almost impossible not to think about two attacks on black churches that happened 52 years apart.

The first attack, in Birmingham, Alabama, inspired Simone to join the burgeoning civil rights movement of the 1960s. The latter, in Charleston, South Carolina, happened just last week.

In the wake of the latest attack, the Netflix documentary may help shed light on how art like Simone’s can channel anger, fear and frustration about social ills like racism and oppression.

Houses of worship were crucial to Simone’s development as an artist and an activist. As a child in Tryon, North Carolina, Simone played the piano at her local church. During one of her performances, her parents were told to move to the back of the church hall; she said she wouldn’t play until her parents were allowed to move back to the front. But decades later, Simone would say she had “stopped believing in prayer” after racist acts kept being committed against those fighting for civil rights.

Simone’s transformation as an artist came in the wake of the bombing in Birmingham that killed four black girls. “That did it,” Simone says in the film, much of which is narrated in her own voice. While she had made a name for herself with renditions of tunes like “I Loves You, Porgy,” her career changed profoundly after she started to sing about what was happening around her.

“How can you be an artist and not reflect the times?” Simone asked.

Following the Birmingham bombing and the assassination of black civil rights activist Medgar Evers in Mississippi, Simone wrote the song “Mississippi Goddam.” In a recording of a concert she gave at New York City’s Carnegie Hall, Simone calls the song a “show tune, but the show hasn’t been written for it yet.” What was subversive about her performance was that she lulled the the majority-white audience at the concert hall into thinking the song would be jaunty and non-political. But her audience went silent as she told them: “You’re all gonna die and die like flies.” She meant every word of it, she told them.

“Lord have mercy on this land of mine / We all gonna get it in due time / I don’t belong here / I don’t belong there / I’ve even stopped believing in prayer,” she sang. “You keep on saying, ‘Go slow!’ / But that’s just the trouble / ‘Do it slow’ / Desegregation / ‘Do it slow’ / Mass participation / ‘Do it slow’ / Reunification / ‘Do it slow’ / Do things gradually / ‘Do it slow’ / But bring more tragedy / ‘Do it slow.'”

Fifty years ago, Simone performed “Mississippi Goddam” for the thousands of civil rights marchers who walked from Selma, Alabama, to the state capitol in Montgomery. That march was marked by violent state troopers blocking the participants’ progress at the Edmund Pettus bridge, illustrating one of Simone’s arguments in her song: Gradually trying to bring about equality only concedes to the demands of the oppressors.

And yet, as the film shows, there was a danger for Simone in being perceived as too controversial. She attributed a stall in her career to “Mississippi Goddam,” which was boycotted by a number of Southern states.

Despite the backlash to her more confrontational music, Simone still “thought we should get our rights by any means possible,” as she explains in the film. She was in favor of direct action and became affiliated with the black power movement, defiantly telling Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. when she met him at the Selma march that she wasn’t non-violent.

Simone says she felt free on stage. But she also said that to her, freedom meant living without fear. (“I think every day’s gonna be my last,” she sang.) What’s devastating about the documentary in light of the Charleston shooting is its reminder that African Americans have yet to realize that freedom from fear, decades after Simone voiced a desire for it.

“We can’t afford any more losses,” Simone says in the film. “They’re killing us one by one.”

At the Sundance film festival in January, the film’s director, Liz Garbus, acknowledged the resonance of the documentary in comments referring to mass protests across the nation over police killings of unarmed African Americans.

“If we had voices like Nina Simone’s today, speaking the pain and the passion of the movement that’s been building, I think, on the streets in the past six months…” Garbus said, “I think we can all see the place of these songs today.”

“What Happened, Miss Simone?” will be available on Netflix Friday. Watch a trailer for the documentary here.

Josh Brolin Recalls James Gandolfini’s Willingness To Mortify Himself For A Scene

Eighteen months after James Gandolfini’s death, Hollywood is still reminiscing about the “Sopranos” star’s contributions to entertainment. In an exclusive clip from the Best Supporting Actor roundtable airing Monday night on Epix, “Inherent Vice” actor Josh Brolin recounts a story about Gandolfini imitating a chicken before takes on the HBO series in order to ensure he’d mortified himself enough offscreen so that nothing onscreen could intimidate him.

“You take your technique — it’s like golfing — and then you work on it, work on it, work on it, and the one time that you don’t think about anything is when you actually swing,” Brolin says after detailing Gandolfini’s penchant.

Best Supporting Actor marks Epix’s third Oscar roundtable, part of its ongoing “Hollywood Sessions” series, produced alongside the Los Angeles Times. Brolin is joined by Edward Norton (“Birdman”), Mark Ruffalo (“Foxcatcher”), J.K. Simmons (“Whiplash”) and Christoph Waltz (“Big Eyes”). The full roundtable airs at 8 p.m.

Sheila E. Recalls The Fateful Night She Met Prince (VIDEO)

Grammy-nominated female percussionist and singer Sheila Escovedo, better known by her stage name Sheila E., was a huge pop star in the ’80s. She famously collaborated with Prince on his “Purple Rain” album and he helped guide her solo career.

In a new episode of “Oprah: Where Are The Now?”, Sheila E. shares the story of the fateful night they met.

“I met Prince in 1978, I think it was,” she says in the above video. “He played here in the Bay Area, and after he performed I was walking backstage to introduce myself and he was in the mirror. And he shook my hand and he goes, ‘I know who you are.'”

To Sheila’s surprise, Prince had been following her career. “That’s when we just started hanging out, working together and listening to music,” she says.

Several years later in 1983, Sheila says Prince inspired her to jump-start her career. “He just said, ‘Don’t you want to do a record?” she recalls.

It immediately set a fire in Sheila. “So it seemed like it was weeks later, I was in the studio recording my record.”

She released her debut album, “The Glamorous Life,” in 1984.

“Oprah: Where Are They Now?” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on OWN.

‘The Case Against 8,’ Which Debuted As Sundance, Recalls California’s Gay Marriage Battle

Two gay couples who waged a five-year court battle to restore same-sex marriage in California are back in the spotlight, in a new film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

Paul Katami and Jeff Zarrillo, and lesbian couple Kris Perry and Sandy Stier, finally achieved their goal last June. But “The Case against 8” recounts the long and often dispiriting judicial battle they fought to get there.

The documentary, by filmmakers Ben Cotner and Ryan White, is in official competition at the independent film festival, which wraps up next weekend in the Utah ski resort of Park City.

The story begins on November 4, 2008 — the day Barack Obama became the first ever African American US president, but also the day Californians voted in a referendum on so-called Proposition 8 to outlaw same sex marriages.

The “Prop 8” decision came only a few months after the western US state’s top court had legalized gay marriage, and some 18,000 same-sex couples had already tied the knot before the referendum blow.

Gay rights campaigners acted immediately, creating the American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER) to take the case to court, where they filed a first lawsuit in May 2009.

“We heard about the case very early on, before it was filed and we asked them about the possibility of making a documentary about it, without knowing that someday it would become a bigger case,” Cotner told AFP.

“At the time, we had no idea that it would go all the way to the Supreme Court,” he added.

As well as the roller-coaster legal fight — from the plaintiffs’ first court victory in San Francisco to the US Supreme Court in Washington — the film also focuses on the two couples at the heart of it.

The four became the face of gay marriage in California, putting huge pressures on them.

“I’ve never been so nervous in my life. Even though we’re ready, there is the weight of ‘I can’t mess this up. I have to represent so many people,'” Katami says in the film.

The two couples “never knew that the case would become so big and they didn’t know that they would become the cement of the story,” co-director White told AFP.

“But on top of that, the idea of having a documentary crew following them probably was not the thing that they wanted most at the beginning,” he added.

A third duo also plays a central role in the film: lawyers Ted Olson and David Boies, nicknamed “The Odd Couple” by the media.

The pair, who had been on opposing sides in the infamous legal battle which resulted in George W. Bush’s 2000 election win over Al Gore, united “to fight for LGBT rights together,” White said.

“That was the heart of the case and probably the heart of the film too,” he added.

Olson, a fervent Republican, drew harsh criticism for supporting gay marriage, even though, as he says in the documentary, “marriage is a conservative value.”

“It’s two people who love one another and want to live together in a stable relationship, to become part of a family and part of a neighborhood and part of our economy,” he said.

The filmmakers said they were careful not to get carried away by the strong emotions on both sides, over the five years.

But their objectivity was seriously challenged when the US Supreme Court restored the right of gays to marry in California, on June 26 last year.

“Two days later, we were at the weddings and that day was the hardest day to film because it was so hard for me to concentrate on the film,” said Cotner.

“I just wanted to be a part of the wedding with them. “I didn’t want to be a filmmaker at that moment. I wished I was just a participant at the wedding,” he said.
