There are many messages in the new animated adventure Kubo and the Two Strings. But, the one that stood out the most to Charlize Theron, who lends her voice to two characters in the film, is about non-traditonal families.

Theron, who is the adoptive mother of two African-American children, told HipHollywood that she loved how the film displayed that there are many different types of families.

“There’s a part of this movie, when you get to the third act that really showcases that family doesn’t always look they way we think family should look,” explained Theron. “And I think that is something so needed in the world right now.”

In the film, Kubo, a young boy with a magical gift for spinning folded origami, accidentally summons a vengeful spirit from the past, and gets a little help finding his way back home from Monkey (Theron) and Beetle (Matthew McConaughey).

McConaughey, who also has three small children, told us he enjoyed being able to think and act like a kid again for his role. “I loved getting to think like a kid with Beetle, because he is a big kid,” explained the Oscar-winning actor. “He’s fiercely loyal, goofy, a warrior in his own mind, a lost samurai that needs a quest, and here it comes.”

Kubo and the Two Strings hits theaters Aug 19th.


Michael Rapaport Calls Himself The “MVP Of Talking Trash” Following Janet Jackson Controversy



Michael Rapaport came under fire earlier this month for slamming Janet Jackson Appreciation Day which was on Super Bowl Sunday. But now, he is speaking a slightly different tune.

On February 4th, as Janet fans used social media to praise the singer, Michael took to Twitter to do what he does best: Talk mess.

“Can anybody crying for Janet Jackson right now tell me the last Janet Jackson song that was popping,” he wrote. “Motherf*cka’s wanna make nothing something 24/7/365 & Super Bowl Sunday.”

Michael, however, is slightly backing down from his aggressive words. HipHollywood caught up with the actor during the premier of Shot In The Dark, to discuss not only his ability to talk “sh*t,” but being attacked by Black Twitter.

“I love Janet Jackson, respect Janet Jackson,” he told us exclusively. “The context of what I said is that Janet Jackson isn’t popping now like she was popping in the 80’s, 90’s. Doesn’t mean she’s not an icon.”

Rapaport, who is known to stir up on some drama with his Twitter antics, then added about being a sh*t talker: “I’m proud of the way I talk sh*t, I’m the MVP of talking trash. I can give it as good as I can take it.”
