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.
Cocktails & Coins! Inside Aisha Tyler’s Wild Life After Divorce & Departure From ‘The Talk’
Aisha Tyler went through a few MAJOR life changes over the past two years and now, the actress is back on top living life to the fullest.
In 2016, Tyler’s college love and husband of 20 years, Jeff Tietjens, filed for divorce from the actress. As if that weren’t an emotional challenge to overcome, Tyler was then ordered to pay Tietjens $31,250 a month in spousal support for the next four years, plus a lump sum of $500k.
Following the emotional split, Tyler’s career then took a big turn when she walked away from CBS’s The Talk. Just eight months ago, the actress left the show to pursue other passions. “I also have three other series (Criminal Minds, hosting Whose Line Is It Anyway? and voicing a character on Archer),” the actress said during the big announcement. “People always go, ‘How do you do all that?’ And I don’t always have an answer.”
While it might sound like Tyler’s woes and 360 of a life might seem completely damaging, it all turned for the better. “The unknown can be very compelling and can be interesting. Instead of thinking about it as change, think about it as dynamism,” she told HipHollywood during the screening of Dwyane Wade’s, Shot in the Dark.
She explained, “You can’t stay the same, your life can’t stay the same. Staying the same is staying in place and staying in place is dying slowly. For me, I always reminded myself I’m not always going to feel this way, it’s not always going to be this tuff.”
“You cannot get through this experience on this planet without a little bit of pain and you need to know that and see that it’s temporary,” Aisha said. “My life is so interesting now and it wouldn’t have been without going through the stuff that I’ve been through. It’s been good for me; all this change.”
The actress is not only the star of some major network shows, but she also is about to launch her new cocktail line, Courage and Stone. “It’s been a really really exciting process,” she told us. “It really came out of my love of cocktails, my love of going to great bars and then going home and being like ‘I don’t know how to do all this.'”
Tyler then admitted that she was a whiskey girl at heart and that when she left the Talk “Julie Chen put me in a whiskey of the month club. She she’s doubled my collection in the last couple of months.”
Set to releae late spring early summer 2018.
