Djimon Hounsou on Marriage: “It Can Ruin The Union”

Published

on

Djimon Hounsou has never been married, but during the press day for his new film Baggage Claim he voiced a pretty strong opinion about it.

“The idea of marrying somebody can actually ruin the union”, Djimon told HipHollywood.

Could this statement give us a little insight on what happened between Djimon and Kimora Lee Simmons?

Hounsou began dating the Life In The Fab Lane star in 2007. Just a year later the two participated in a traditional commitment ceremony in Djimon’s native country Benin. And while Kimora called Djimon her husband, the pair, who were never legally married in the U.S., separated in 2012.

“Some people are happily together for decades and they get this fantasy idea to go and get married when it’s just about papers basically…eventually it just goes sour”, Hounson continued to explain.

Do you think Djimon was speaking about himself…or someone else?

Halle Berry proved she could hang with the fellas when she downed a glass of whiskey at Comic Con alongside her Kingsman: The Golden Circle co-stars. But don’t expect her to do that again.

“No more, no more,” she said after hilariously bolting from the room when we asked her if she’d drink another glass. “I will never [do it again], and no one lets me live down the fact that I did it either.”

According to Berry she was ill for three days after, but that didn’t stop her and Pedro Pascal from daring me to throw back a glass right before our interview.

Not one to turn down a challenge, I did it, and received a round of applause and high fives before preceding to discuss the duo’s roles and why they decided to join the cast of Kingsman.

“Matthew Vaughn’s version of these movies always interested me” explained Berry who is no stranger to spy flicks after starring in the James Bond film Die Another Day. “I was apart of the Bond series and I feel like this is similar but it’s also for the new generation.”

She continued, “Some of the elements are the same but I call it spy thriller 2.0, he takes it to the next level that no one else does right now.”

In the film Berry, Pascal, Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum play members of the Statesmen – a U.S. Spy agency operating out of a Kentucky Bourbon distillery. Pascal told us he gained a newfound appreciation for men in suits, but still prefers his jeans.

“I play agent whiskey. I’m a southern gentlemen so I’m a little more buttoned up … I’m like the stateside version of those square pegs from across the pond,” he joked.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theaters September 22.
