One day after Caitlyn Jenner received the Arthur Ashe Courage Award, the former athlete’s touching acceptance speech was still a hot topic.

While on the orange carpet at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Sports Awards, HipHollywood caught up with a few professional athletes and Hollywood A listers to get their reaction to the monumental moment.

“Love,” Teyana Taylor told us. “I’m a Caitlyn fan.”

NBA player, Andre Drummond expressed that Jenner’s speech was an eye opener for him. “It was a learning experience not only for me but everyone in the arena,” he said. “I definitely think she should have won that award.”

Golden State Warriors player, Klay Thompson explained, “He was such great athlete growing up. My generation kind of forgets that. It takes a lot of courage for him to do that. That was powerful.”

And American Little League Baseball pitcher, Mo’ne Davis shared that she learned something new from the 65-year-old’s speech. “I didn’t know there were a lot of trans that actually kill themselves or got murdered. Just let people be them and don’t judge them.”

Not everyone, however, had postitive things to say about the reality star’s monumental moment. MMA champion, Tito Ortiz told HipHollywood, “My mom always said if I don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”
Pior to the 65-year-old receiving the courage award, Instagram blocked the most recent uploads and mentions from the hashtag, caitlynjanner, due to the overwhelming amount of negative and hateful comments.


Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves



To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
