Before Kobe Bryant ruptured his Achilles tendon during Friday’s game versus the Golden State Warriors, some in the media were already speculating about what the NBA star would do once he retired.
Now with news that Bryant will miss the remainder of the season and will be sidelined for six to nine months, many wonder if that retirement will come sooner than expected.
But, HipHollywood caught up with Bryant before the near career ending injury, and found out that his retirement plans may still include basketball, just not in the U.S.
“I’ll definitely go to Italy for something just because that’s where I grew up and still have friends there, so I’ll definitely be out there doing something,” Kobe revealed. “I have started thinking about it, but that is the challenge when you retire what can you do after.”
It’s Litty! Migos, Jaden Smith & More Turn Up At ‘Bright’ World Premiere
Netflix definitely made sure the world premiere for their new flick Bright was lit!
Before the films stars including Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, Edgar Ramierez and Noomi Rapace hit the black carpet, Migos surprised fans with a pop-up performance.
Smith’s son Jaden also rocked the packed crowd at the Regency Village Theatre in Westwood.
Artists featured on the soundtrack BRIGHT: THE ALBUM including Portugal The Man, Machine Gun Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, Kiiara, Slushie, Grey, Dram, and Bebe Rexha also hit up the premiere.
Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.
He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.“
“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”
In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.
“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”
BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
