Issa Rae Gives Stephen Colbert Her Favorite Advice: 'Don't Be Afraid To Be A Bitch'

Issa Rae stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert last night (August 9) ahead of Sunday’s return (August 12) of her Emmy-nominated HBO show Insecure!

The 33-yeare-old talked about meeting celebrities, her mom’s concern for the show’s racy content and cleared up rumors that she turned down Drake at a Golden Globes party.

Issa also talked about getting approached by up-and-coming talent for advice and admitted sometimes she doesn’t “know what to tell them because everybody’s journey is different.”

“As a showrunner, being in the industry, just as a woman, once you’re labeled like difficult, your career is kinda over, cuz then it’s like everybody’s saying, ‘Oh she’s hard to work with, beware,’ and then you don’t get many chances to fail,” Issa said.

The biggest slice of advice Rae could offer, though, came from a few of her Hollywood leading women friends — Shonda Rhimes, Ava DuVernay, Mara Brock Akil and Debbie Allen. “Don’t be afraid to be a b***h,” Rae said. “And it’s so true.”

That same day, Issa posed at Samsung’s After Unpacked: An Evening for the Rest of Us event held at Samsung 837 where the company revealed the all-new Samsung Galaxy Note9.

Joe Manganiello & Stephen Colbert Discuss 'Dungeons & Dragons' Only on 'Late Show'!

Joe Manganiello made an appearance on last night’s (August 7) episode of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to talk only about his obsession with Dungeons & Dragons.

“I’m O.G nerd. Back when it wasn’t cool,” the 41-year-old actor insisted. “When I was a little kid I had the Hobbit picture book with chime to tell you to turn the page and from there it was like the gateway drug into like the basic Dungeons & Dragons.”

Joe also explained some of the origins behind his Death Wears streetwear line, namely that it combined many of the passions that he and other D&D fans had while growing up in the 1980s.

“When I was a kid, if you played Dungeons & Dragons, you also listened to Metallica, you read Stephen King, you had a glow in the dark Led Zeppelin poster on your wall, you had an Iron Maiden t-shirt, you hung out at the arcade, you read comic books. It all went together,” Joe said. “So I’m combining them all together under one banner.”

Joe also talked about his home dungeon, the “L.A. hub,” and called out Vin Diesel for not being a real D&D enthusiast – Watch the full interview below!

Chloe Moretz Lied to Martin Scorsese to Get 'Hugo' Role

Chloe Moretz had to tell a little white lie to land her role in Hugo!

The 21-year-old actress stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday (August 2) to promote her new movie The Miseducation of Cameron Post, which hits theaters today.

“I lied to a pretty heavy hitter,” she told host Stephen Colbert. “I lied to Martin Scorsese for Hugo. In Hugo, I’m supposed to have a British accent and be British. So, I went in there just ready for it, and I lied.”

“I hadn’t done a British accent before, but I always enjoyed accents, so I played around with it with my brother,” she continued. “We always, like, pretended to be British, but I have a solid ear, so I’m OK with faking it.”

“I go into the audition – and I’d done a couple smaller auditions, and the casting director knew I wasn’t British, but she knew that I was willing to lie, and she liked me. She was like, ‘Lie to Marty, and work.’ I was like, ‘OK.’”

Watch below to find out what Chloe said during her audition, and to find out when Martin finally realized she was lying!

Chrissy Metz Explains How To 'Show Up For Yourself' on 'Late Show'

Chrissy Metz hit Stephen Colbert‘s couch on The Late Show on Tuesday night (July 17) and talked about the work that went into creating her best-selling, self-help memoir, “This Is Me: Loving the Person You Are Today.”

“It took four months while on the second season and award season, which was really tricky,” the 37-year-old This is Us star told Stephen about writing the memoir. “Just show up for yourself, you just have to get through it sometimes and do the work.”

“Kevin O’Leary, who was exceptional and became my ghostwriter, friend and therapist essentially, he became so instrumental in the process,” Chrissy admitted.
