'Crazy Rich Asians' Stars Explain Why Representation Matters

Michelle Yeoh, Henry Golding, Constance Wu, Ken Jeong, and Awkwafina pose for a group photo while visiting the Build Series on Tuesday afternoon (August 14) in New York City.

The stars of Crazy Rich Asians opened up about why representation on the big screen matters.

“Representation matters, because I didn’t have a lot of that growing up…In terms of Crazy Rich Asians, I was looking for this movie as a kid…it’s something audiences should celebrate, and we should have more of that, and I think that we will,” Awkwafina said.

“I grew up in Richmond, Virginia. My high school mascot was a rebel holding the confederate flag. I never got any blatant bullying, which made me internalize any feelings I had, and turned into self-blame,” Constance said about Asian culture in the west.

FYI: Constance is wearing a Michael Kors Collection look.

'The Green Book' Releases New Poster & Trailer - Watch Now!

'The Green Book' Releases New Poster & Trailer - Watch Now!

The Green Book just released a new poster and a trailer, which you can watch right here!

The movie, which hits theaters on November 21, co-stars Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali.

Peter Farrelly directed the film, which is inspired by a true friendship that transcended race, class and the 1962 Mason-Dixon line.

When Tony Lip (Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on “The Green Book” to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger-as well as unexpected humanity and humor-they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Says She 'Can't Guarantee' Donald Trump Didn't Say the N-Word

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Says She 'Can't Guarantee' Donald Trump Didn't Say the N-Word

Sarah Huckabee Sanders cannot say for certain that President Donald Trump never said the N-word during The Apprentice.

The 36-year-old White House Press Secretary was asked about the topic during a press conference on Tuesday (August 14) following the news of Omarosa Manigault‘s reported recordings in the White House, including one in which campaign aides discuss the possibility of a tape existing.

During the questioning, Sarah said that she “can’t guarantee” that the President never said the word.

“The President addressed that question directly via Twitter…I can certainly say I’ve never heard him use that term or anything similar,” she said.

“I can’t guarantee anything, but I can tell you that the President addressed this question directly. I can tell you that I never heard it. I can also tell you that if myself, or the people that are in this building serving this country every single day doing our very best to help people all across this country and make it better…if at any point we felt that the President was who some of his critics claim him to be, we certainly wouldn’t be here.”

Earlier in the day, Trump tweeted: “.@MarkBurnettTV called to say that there are NO TAPES of the Apprentice where I used such a terrible and disgusting word as attributed by Wacky and Deranged Omarosa. I don’t have that word in my vocabulary, and never have. She made it up.”

Aretha Franklin's Rep Says She's 'Seriously Ill' & 'Surrounded By Family'

Aretha Franklin is ill and her representative has released a statement amid reports spreading about her health.

Aretha Franklin has been the Matriarch of the Franklin family since the passing of all of her siblings. The love she has for her family is above reproach and was evident in the warm smiles she was able to share with her nephew during his very brief visit two weeks ago,” Aretha‘s rep told People. “She is seriously ill and surrounded by family members who appreciate the outpouring of love and support they have received.”

Aretha‘s nephew Tim told People this week, “She’s alert, laughing, teasing, able to recognize people. Family is there with her. She’s home.”

Our continued thoughts are with Aretha during this time.
