Jamie Foxx and Shaquille O’Neal joined the the all-star line up of honorees on Friday night for the 13th Annual Harold & Carole Pump Foundation Gala.
HipHollywood caught up with Foxx and O’Neal while on the red carpet about being the night’s honorees. “It’s great to be honored. There’s a lot of great athletes, actors, actresses here, and to be in the same breath as these people is an honor among itself,” Shaq explained.
“As far as the honor, it is absolutely fantastic, but the bigger picture is what Dana and David do for the foundation. So anyway I can help out and the fact to be an honor, is amazing,” Foxx shared.
The annual event hosted a number of professional athletes and Hollywood star’s, so while on the red carpet, HipHollywood caught up with some of the attendees to get their reaction on MLB player, Alex Rodriguez’s alleged use of performance enhancing drugs.
“Any time you got a situation with a guy cheating, that’s a bad thing. What makes me upset is a lot of these guys don’t even acknowledge that they cheated other guys who tried to do it right, out of their potential fame or their potential fortune. That drives me crazy,” former NBA player David Robinson explained.
Julius Erving, A.K.A Dr. J, also chimed in, stating that it’s a no win situation for A Rod. “He’s being judged by the court of high opinion. And the higher opinion has said you’re on the wrong side of the issue,” Dr. J shared.
Oprah Loved Being A Braided Blonde Bombshell In ‘A Wrinkle In Time’
Oprah Winfrey is a blonde bombshell in Ava Duvernay’s “A Wrinkle in Time” and she loved every minute of it. HipHollywood sat down with the media mogul along with Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling to talk about playing the Mrs. and their elaborate hair, make-up and costumes.
“Girl we had hair for days,” gushed Winfrey. “My favorite was the ponytail, the braid.”
Celebrity hair guru Kim Kimble, who frequently works with Beyonce, headed up the film’s hair department. For the film she turned Lady O into a blonde, Reese into a red head and gave Kaling fab braided locks. “They were like [hair] sculptures,” said Kaling who plays Mrs. Who.
So how long did it take to get these ladies out of this world ready? “Hours,” joked Winfrey and Reese in unison.
To be exact, the ladies were in hair and make-up 3-5 hours daily as lead hairstylist Kim Kimble and make-up artists LaLette Littlejohn and Derrick Rutledge got them camera ready. “I think Kim and the team worked for days before, sculpting and making it right,” added Winfrey who plays Mrs. Which.
Derrick Rutledge, Winfrey’s personal makeup artist who also worked on the film, designed rhinestone eyebrows for each Mrs. Which ensemble. Meanwhile costume designer Paco Delgado drew from volcano explosions and depictions of galaxies to create costumes that made Winfrey shimmer and appear larger than life.
In the Disney big screen adaption, the three celestial beings – Mrs. Which, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Whatsit lead 13-year-old Meg (Storm Reid) and others on a journey to rescue the girl’s scientist father (Chris Pine) from evil otherworldly forces.
It’s better seen than simply described, so be sure to check out A Wrinkle In Time in theaters now!
