By now we’ve all seen the recent video of Cuba Gooding Jr. getting way too turnt in a Miami club. But there may be a good explanation for why the Oscar-winning actor was shirtless, dancing on a table and put a man’s phone in his mouth. Dale Godboldo, who co-starred with Cuba on The People V. O.J. Simpson told HipHollywood he’s witnessed Cuba’s crazy antics, and believes it’s just the way the actor blows off steam.

“We had a great time filming,” laughed Godboldo who plays Carl Douglas on the FX series. “He focuses and worked so hard on this role that sometimes on set he would just have to let it go and do something crazy on set, and everybody would crack up, and it would break the tension, and then he’d be right back in the zone.”

Cuba did admit while on Larry King Now that he was a bit overwhelmed playing the role of O.J. Simpson, and broke down while filming the funeral scene. “I remember celebrating the ‘not guilty’ verdict because I didn’t care if he did it or not. I didn’t want another black man to be railroaded, OK?” he said. “So here I was in that moment realizing I never grieved for those families. I could celebrate that, but I can’t take into consideration the Goldman family, the Brown’s and it just hit me.”

Cuba also told King it took him a month to recover from the role, saying: “I remember Heath Ledger said after he played the Joker character that it was just a darkness he couldn’t shake, and I always thought that was kind of BS. I was like, ‘You’re an actor. You’re supposed to go in and out. But it’s true Larry. I’m telling you.”

Hmmm, could he still be recovering? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
