Girls Trip is hitting theaters this weekend …. and the one scene we’re sure folks will be talking about is the one with the grapefruit. “Grapefruit stock is about to go up!” joked Queen Latifah who plays Sasha in the Will Packer produced flick.

In the film the ladies trek to New Orleans for Essence Fest and end up getting a lesson in the art of grape fruiting thanks to Tiffany Haddish’s hilarious character Dena.

We sat down with the cast to talk about the sex technique, made popular on youtube by Auntie Angel, and how they kept a straight face while filming.

“I laughed while doing it,” explained Haddish. “That’s the way to make them cum, I mean that’s the way to make everybody laugh.”

“It took us two days. The first day we had lighting problems and we just couldn’t get through it,” added Jada Pinkett-Smith. “The second day I had to just come with my game face on.”

“I was mad I missed the scene,” said Regina Hall. “I actually saw it in play back because I wasn’t in it, and I don’t look at grapefruits the same.”

We don’t think audiences will either! Girls Trip hits theaters July 21.

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



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 crisis around the world and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genius behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard 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 it’s core, it’s like, listen, ‘we gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

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

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural ills and 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.
