David Oyelowo's Wife Jessica Needed 'No Acting' In 'A United Kingdom'!

David Oyelowo is opening up about his wife Jessica needing “no acting” to express her “disgust” over his onscreen love affair with Rosamund Pike in their film A United Kingdom!

The drama-romance is based on the true story of Prince Seretse Khama of Botswana (David), who became a center of controversy in the 1940s after marrying a white woman (Rosamund).

“In real life we’re very in love; in the film she plays a racist, and she does it a little too well for my liking!,” David, 40, joked during an interview on Good Morning America on Monday (February 6) in New York City.

“She has to look at us in disgust as we hold hands (for the film),” Rosamund added, prompting David to continue to joke, “There was no acting!”

That same evening, David and Rosamund were joined by Jessica and director Amma Asante at the world premiere of A United Kingdom held at The Paris Theater.

Olivia Wilde Recites Moving Michelle Obama Speech At MLK Now 2017!

In celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. day (January 16), Olivia Wilde joined a crew of stars at MLK Now 2017 to honor the legacy of the civil rights leader at Riverside Church in New York City.

The 32-year-old actress read a moving speech from First Lady Michelle Obama, while Desitny’s Child member Michelle Williams, Moonlight star Andre Holland, La La Anthony, and David Oyelowo – who portrayed Dr. King in the 2014 film Selma – also hit the stage to perform speeches at the special event.

“Today, I had the honor of reciting a speech by @michelleobama at powerful gathering of activists at Riverside Church in Harlem, organized by #blackoutforhumanrights,” Olivia captioned with her Instagram post after the event. “It was in this very church that Dr King gave his now famous anti-Vietnam war, pro-social justice, speech on April 4th, 1967, exactly one year before he was murdered.”

“Today, we performed speeches from several important activists throughout history, including Mandela, Audre Lorde, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Muhammad Ali, and more,” Olivia added. “I had the privilege of sharing these words from our formidable First Lady: “Strong men, men who are truly role models, don’t need to put down women to make themselves feel powerful.” There is no other place I would have preferred to spend this important day. Thank you to everyone who gathered, and vowed to stay strong, and committed, as we continue to resist injustice. ❤ #MLKnow”
