Jada Pinkett Smith and husband Will Smith took a swamp tour in New Orleans, but get this, their journey was all by way of Groupon.

Jada stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday and hilariously recounted the moment she and Will realized they were about to jump on a boat with a group of strangers.

According to Jada, her Girls Trip costar, Tiffany Haddish picked up the Groupon and was going to hit the swamps alone. But when she unveiled to Jada she was going alone, the mother of two agreed that she, Will and her brother-in-law would tag along.

Here’s the catch, Pinkett thought a groupon was something you book for a group of friends. “I had no idea. But I’m saying to myself, ‘you got a groupon and you’re going by yourself you need a group.'”

Jada continued, “We get there and I’m like, ‘wow, it’s a lot of people here Tiffany where’s our boat?’ … I thought you had a coupon for a group, meaning the four of us to go on one of those fan boats.”

The moment the actress realized she and Will were going to be on a boat with dozens of random people, she started to freak out. She explained to the late night talk show that it was going to be a mess because of Will.

When Pinkett suggested they leave, it was Will who said, “Forget that I’m not going home, I wanna go on a swamp tour.”

And apparently, they had “the best time ever.”


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.
