Charlie Hunnam is  going from the “Sons of Anarchy” to the “Son of a King” in the new Guy Ritchie flick King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

As one might imagine, Hunnam is kicking some major butt in the action-packed film based on the Arthurian Legend, but surprisingly, he’s not the only one.

According to Hunnam, his co-star Djimon Hounsou is a beast at sword fighting and kicked some major ass — on and off the screen.

“One day I walked in the stunt room to do some rehearsal and the stunt men were all smashed to pieces,” laughed Hunnam. “Guys were limping and holding their arms and they just looked like they had been in a cage fight or something, and I was like, ‘What happened?’ and they were like, ‘Djimon.'”

Hunnam added, “Apparently he’s formidable to shoot those scenes with and, while he is a good swordsman, he doesn’t pull any punches. I was very happy I didn’t have to fight Djimon.”

In the film, Hounsou plays Sir Bedivere, a helpful advisory and friend to King Arthur, and he told us he was happy to see Hollywood embracing diversity when casting the film.

“The call came in, I spoke to Guy Ritchie, I was thrilled,” explained the 53-year-old actor. “It was about King Arthur, I was extra thrilled because I thought this is a place where my kind doesn’t really exist and here I am a part of the making of this king.”

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword hits theaters May 12.

Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy

Published

Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.

If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage.  So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.

Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.

“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”

“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”

To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.

“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”

So do you agree Heavenly? Let us know in the comments below.
