Hugh Jackman Throws Shade at Ryan Reynolds After Actor Crashes His Birthday Message Recording

We all have that one annoying friend — and for Hugh Jackman, that friend is Ryan Reynolds.

Jackman attempted to record a birthday message for a fan on Twitter Friday when he was interrupted by Reynold’s Deadpool.

As the Wolverine actor started to record his well-wishes, Reynolds began singing in the background.

“When you’re trying to record a heartfelt birthday message …. but are interrupted by the least greatest showman,” he wrote on Twitter.

Distracted by the song, Jackman panned the camera over to show Reynolds laying on a hotel bed in his full Deadpool costume singing “Tomorrow.”

“Don’t give him too much attention,” Jackman said in the clip.

But it didn’t stop there. Reynolds then went on to sing “Who Let the Dogs Out” with Jackman unable to resist chiming in.

“Who let them out? No one knows,” said Reynolds. “No one ever solved that mystery.”

Both Reynolds and Jackman are together promoting their films at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. The two even participated in a comical musical number together to open Fox’s presentation at the theater owner conference..

This isn’t the first time the two have sparred on social media. The longtime friends have enjoyed taking jabs at each on Twitter.

In 2015, while filming Deadpool, Reynolds posted a video on Instagram impersonating the Australian actor and asked fans to vote for him for PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive (both men had already been given the honor — Jackman in 2008 and Reynolds in 2010).

“G’day mate, Hugh Jackman here,” Reynolds says in a thick Australian accent. “Just reminding you to get your votes in for PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive. Cover’s coming up.”

In March 2017, Reynolds joked that most of Jackman’s fans were actually “protestors.”

Mandy Moore Throws Cold Water On ‘Tangled’ And ‘Frozen’ Fan Theory

Sorry fans, Mandy Moore has outright rejected the theory that connects Disney’s 2010 animated feature “Tangled” with its 2013’s animated blockbuster “Frozen.” 

Fans have theorized that “Frozen’s” king and queen of Arendelle were on their way to the wedding of Rapunzel and Flynn from “Tangled” when their ship sank and they died. Fans believe that’s why the newlywed couple make a cameo in “Frozen” as they are obligated to be at Elsa’s coronation ceremony. 

It’s a rather disturbing theory and Moore, who voices Rupunzel in the Disney Channel’s new “Tangled” TV series, as well as the 2010 movie, was not having it. 

“That’s a pretty morbid fan theory,” Moore said while looking slightly horrified in an interview with TVLine, published Friday. “It feels like someone is really reaching, like into ‘Lost’ territory or something.”

“There is no connection as far as I know,” she continued. But I don’t think there is any connection. No. But sure, people can imagine what they will all day. That’s their prerogative.”

The theory actually goes a step further and connects the sunken ship that appears in Disney’s the “Little Mermaid” as potentially belonging to to the king and queen of Arendelle. 

It’s all very creative and the co-director of “Frozen,” Chris Buck, further connected films within the Disney universe when he participated in a Reddit AMA in August 2015.

According to Buck, the king and queen didn’t die on that ship. Rather, they washed up on the shore of a “jungle island,” where the queen gave birth to a baby boy. Together they all lived in a tree house before tragedy struck and the king and queen were eaten by a leopard. The baby boy was left to be “raised by gorillas.” If that sounds like the start to Disney’s “Tarzan,” it’s no coincidence that Buck also directed that movie and further helps cement the theory that all Disney films are somehow connected.

Man Proposes To Girlfriend On Romantic Plane Ride, Immediately Throws Up

When Darrell Hamilton Jr., decided to propose to his girlfriend, Rheanna Lopez, he wanted it to be memorable.

Well, it was, but not in the way he intended, expected or, frankly, wanted.

Last month, Hamilton took Lopez on a plane ride of the Blossom Trail, an area near Fresno, California, where fruit trees start blossoming in late February.

Hamilton, a video editor for KFSN TV, has been dating Lopez for two years and knew he wanted to marry her since last year.

“I planned it for so long,” he told Inside Edition.

But he never planned on getting motion sickness during the flight.

“The only thing was really on my mind was wanting to get it over with,” he said.

The video shows Hamilton showing Lopez the ring and “Will you marry me?”

Seconds later, he vomits on the floor.

“I just went into help mode,” Lopez said. “I didn’t know how to react. I was in shock.”

Hamilton admits his girlfriend had trouble getting her own bearings ― emotionally, that is.

“She was really surprised,” he told the New York Post. “She was caught off guard and had mixed emotions because I started throwing up. She didn’t know what to do. She was concerned about me.”

Lopez finally decided to pat him tenderly on the back while handing him a sweater to wipe his face.

Oh, and she did say yes.

Under the circumstances, their first kiss as an engaged couple wasn’t a lip-smacking smooch fest. Instead, they each kissed their fingers and touched them together.

Since the proposal was such as a challenge, it’s understandable they haven’t made wedding plans yet.

Still, Hamilton is already planning his life with Lopez.

“I have a son from a previous relationship and me and Rheanna don’t have any kids together,” Hamilton told ABC News. “So maybe starting a family with a child of our own and being a role model for the both of them, and for her.”

Tracy Morgan Throws Shade At Destiny’s Child From Beyonce’s Womb

When Tracy Morgan returns to “SNL,” he comes out kicking.

The former cast member made a guest appearance as one of Beyoncé’s unborn twins, and things couldn’t have been more amusing.

“I just feel like we’re different from other babies,” Morgan, seen wrapped in a plastic umbilical cord, told his brother, played by Kenan Thompson.

“Yeah, we’re different,” Thompson said. “You know who our mama is?”

“No, but I think she’s important,” Morgan replied. “When people meet her they scream, so she’s either a beautiful queen or a goblin.”

The two adult-sized babies lounged on a red velvet couch, surrounded by red roses and red curtains. There was even a recording studio, as they pointed out.

Still, like most babies, they were eager to get out.

“She’s having a hard enough time carrying us as it is,” Thompson reasoned.

“Oh, no she’s not. I heard she carried two full-grown ladies for 10 years named Michelle and Kelly,” Morgan retorted, in a fiery zinger at Beyoncé’s earlier days singing with Destiny’s Child.

If the sight of them wrapped up in giant umbilical cords wasn’t enough to deliver a laugh, check out their precious sonogram below.

Let Rapping Big Bird Make Your Day As He Throws Down To Big Pun’s ‘Still Not A Player’

He’s an endearing childhood character, and he’s not a player — he just crushes a lot.

“He” is Big Bird, and thanks to some inspired editing by Ben Roberts, aka Animal Robot, he’s also a fan of the late rapper Big Pun.

If you’ve ever wondered what Big Bird does after he leaves Sesame Street for the day, now you have an answer. In this demo, he mouths along to Big Pun’s raunchy 1998 hit “Still Not A Player,” while assorted Muppets back him up.

If this video strikes a familiar chord, there’s a reason: In March, Animal Robot posted this video of Earl Sinclair of “Dinosaurs” fame rapping Notorious B.I.G.’s “Hypnotize,” which went viral for obvious reasons.

The Illustrious Oakland Ballet Throws a Party Like No Other

This week marks a major milestone in the history of two storied American ballet companies on opposite coasts: American Ballet Theatre turns 75, and Oakland Ballet turns 50.

Bowing to their respective pasts, their gala celebrations spotlight two different golden eras in the history of ballet: the Diaghilev era in the case of Oakland, and the American pioneers of the mid 20th century in ABT’s.

A sybaritic film salute to ABT by Ric Burns, which just premièred on PBS, underscores the influence of impresario Serge Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes and its revolutionary collaborations with Stravinsky, Satie, Cocteau, Picasso, Bakst, Chanel and others, on the evolution of dance in America.

Oakland Ballet founder Ronn Guidi was passionate about reconstructing these modernist works, and this weekend the company will gift us with excerpts from five iconic ballets by Mikhail Fokine (Petrouchka and Scheherazade), Léonide Massine (La Boutique Fantasque) and Bronislava Nijinska (Le Train Bleu and Les Biches), as well as Vaslav Nijinsky’s groundbreaking, erotic L’Après-midi d’un Faune in its entirety. The décor for Ann Hutchinson Guest’s 1995 restoration of Faune has been resurrected for this season’s gala. For one brief shining evening, in the glorious precincts of the Art Deco Paramount Theatre, home to many of the company’s past seasons, audiences will be transported not just to Oakland Ballet’s early days but back to the heyday of the legendary Ballets Russes in the 1910’s and 20’s.

Guidi’s curatorial tastes were not confined to the Diaghilev era, however. Under his direction, through the 1990’s, Oakland Ballet also revived modern American classics and commissioned new work. Eugene Loring contributed several ballets including The Tender Land, for which Guidi invited composer Aaron Copland to conduct his score.

Graham Lustig – at the helm of the company since 2010 – has chosen to represent this period in the gala program by excerpts from Loring’s Billy the Kid, Alonzo King’s Love Dogs, and Ronn Guidi’s The Secret Garden, and by the full-length Green by Carlos Carvajal.

Lustig thinks big. Not simply content with honoring tradition, he says “we must step away from it, too,” and has roped five choreographers, all of whom have longstanding connections to the company, to make new dances for the gala. In addition to Lustig’s world première to music by minimalist Max Richter, Val Caniparoli, Betsy Erickson, Michael Lowe, Robert Moses and Amy Seiwert – a formidable brigade of Left Coast dancemakers – are each crafting a toast to the 50th anniversary of this historic company.

And while tight finances preclude the furnishing of live orchestra for the evening, renowned pianist Roy Bogas will play live for Moses’ new piece, set to Satie, and for the revival of King’s Love Dogs, set to Poulenc.

Dying to see how Lustig was going to execute these heroic maneuvers with a lean, mean fighting machine of only 14 dancers, Ballet to the People tiptoed into Oakland Ballet’s busy studios at the Malonga Casquelourd Center for the Arts to spy on Erickson and Caniparoli at work on their new pieces.

A duet for Emily Kerr and Taurean Green, set to the shimmering, soaring strings of Marjan Mozetich’s “Postcards from the Sky,” marks Erickson’s return to choreography after a long absence. Oakland-born, Erickson was ballet mistress for Oakland Ballet in the 1980’s, after her own illustrious performing career, and the pieces she created on the company back then were much admired. Her new, story-less duet situates Kerr and Green as equals, with similar qualities of strength in their movement.

As the silvery blonde Erickson demonstrated a sweeping movement of the arms with a slight twist of the shoulders, Kerr imitated her delicate but authoritative épaulement, and Ballet to the People was struck by the identical beauty of their serene, aristocratic profiles.

Erickson has Kerr and Green chew up space and together, they look like a god and goddess gamboling on Mount Olympus. They’re an intriguing pair: the fragile-looking Kerr, whose steely core emerges unexpectedly, and the imposing Green whose body lines slash thrillingly through space.

Across the hall, the animated, silver-haired Caniparoli took three couples through a lighthearted, caffeinated romp that had them slouching and stomping and ricocheting off each other and off the floor, a dash of hip hop here, a nod to French court dances there.

But first they had to work out a thorny new lift.

Caniparoli demonstrated it with Sharon Wehner, threading one arm through her arms that were tautly cocked behind her like the wings of a rooster. With his other hand providing leverage against a critical spot on her mid-spine, he timed his push to match her jump. She sailed through the air, snapping her legs into a split at the peak for even more oomph. It took a bit of practice before Sean Omandam, Matthew Roberts and Tyler Rhoads could achieve the same effortless propulsion with their partners. Daphne Lee and Alysia Chang rounded out the spirited sextet.

Once they had the entire sequence down with counts, it was time to run it with music. This knock-your-socks-off arrangement of Leopold Mozart’s “Toy Symphony” has been re-orchestrated for the 21st century, in a recording by violinist Gidon Kremer and the Kremerata Baltica, with the tinny buzz of a cellphone and the high-pitched drone of a computer-generated voice chirping “hello” in place of the more familiar toy trumpet, cuckoo and drum.

It was all the dancers could do to keep from cracking up as Caniparoli tossed witty movement jokes at them, but they had to work hard to syncopate the movement the way he instructed.

Grins broke out, however, once costume-fitting time rolled around. Of the bold, bright designs, Ballet to the People scribbled in her notes: “Alice in Wonderland meets Cabaret.”

Just as Oakland has weathered grave economic and socio-political storms, the viability of its ballet company has been threatened several times in recent decades. Lustig is a pragmatist when it comes to fiscal management. The magic that is making this gala come together is not magic at all: it’s the generous collaboration of dozens of former Oakland Ballet alumni – coming in to coach the present crop of dancers in the revivals, lending a hand with designs – and the goodwill of many organizations including the Paramount Theater, the Oakland mayor’s office, the unions. Lustig’s dreams of restoring the company to its former luster, augmenting his imaginative – and profitable – Nutcracker with a full spring and fall season, will require significant public and private commitment from a city that seems perennially strapped and preoccupied with other issues.

This is an image problem hardly unique to Oakland. Farther south, in the more affluent Silicon Valley environs, Ballet San Jose recently issued an emergency appeal for half a million dollars, and will require another $ 3.5 million by October to stay afloat.

Those with deep pockets who are looking to make an impact with their philanthropy may not see ballet as sufficiently cutting-edge, hip or relevant.

But Lustig’s impeccable programming taste and vision may change their minds.

The day after the gala performance at the Paramount, the company will take the party to Laney College, where it will perform its newest works alongside an array of local dance companies. These include the imaginative AXIS Dance, which unites dancers with and without physical disabilities, Walnut Creek’s spunky Diablo Ballet, The Milissa Payne Project, street dance crew Turffeinz, and Tessera Tribal Belly Dance.

Of the updated score that Val Caniparoli uses in his latest work, Gidon Kremer called it an attempt “to set Mozart in the frame of our time.”

With this gala, Graham Lustig does exactly that for classical ballet.

Man Throws Brick At Window. Brick Bounces Off Window. Brick Knocks Man Out. (VIDEO)

We’ve come a long way as a species.

Once nothing but bacteria floating in a salty ocean, we grew legs, pulled ourselves up by our boot-straps, and started walking on land. We hunted animals with our bare hands before developing spears and other weapons. We built pyramids. We sent humans into space. We got knocked out trying to throw a brick through a car window.

That’s right.

A would-be thief in Ireland attempted to break into a car by throwing a brick into the vehicle’s window, only for the brick to bounce back and knock the man unconscious, CCTV video obtained by the Irish Independent shows.

The owner of the nearby Pheasant pub and the car that fought back, Gerry Brady, came out to investigate and saw the man lying in a pool of his own blood. That’s when the suspect attempted to blackmail him, he said. More from the Independent:

“When the Gardaí picked him up, he started claiming that I attacked him. He was still telling them that in the station when I came in with the footage of him getting knocked out by his own brick.”

“You should have heard the garda laughing when they saw the video. They were in stitches. Credit to them, they were straight out when we called and found the guy within minutes.”

The man was quickly collected by authorities, and the incident remains under investigation.

Still, this brave almost-robber has taught humanity an important lesson: No matter how evolved we are, sometimes we are bested by bricks.

Waste in Focus: What America Throws Away (PHOTOS)

Photographer Peter Menzel captured America’s attention with his last photo project, What the World Eats, and his book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets. In that project, Menzel’s images powerfully portrayed differences in income, nutrition, and lifestyle.

His latest project, centering on what Americans across the country throw away and recycle, is no less powerful. The images that make up Waste in Focus feature eight American families surrounded by their weekly waste broken down into what is recycled and what goes to the landfill. The images make it impossible to deny how much waste some households generate, or that it is possible to reduce the amount of waste in our homes by making a few simple changes.
