Joshua Jackson Throws A Big Party For His Liquid Media Group During TIFF

Joshua Jackson leads the way to the Liquid Media Group’s The Big Splash event held at Windsor Arms Hotel on Monday (September 13) in Toronto, Ontario.

The 43-year-old actor, who is also a chairman of the group, was joined by Never Have I Ever‘s Maitreyi Ramakrishnan and Eric Benet, among many others.

“The company started when I was 13 years old, when I started in the industry,” Joshua shared with Deadline in a conversation event during the 2021 Toronto Film Festival.

He says that Liquid Media is looking to create an easier path for filmmakers to get their content in front of audiences, while allowing them ownership in their content across all ancillaries, so that “you survive and tell another story.”

“I’ve seen the variety of different ways in which the system doesn’t encourage or reward the people doing the hard work,” Joshua adds. “(For a distributor) you’re just another piece of product that they’re putting out there in the world.”

You've Been Pronouncing These Celebrities' Names All Wrong

Many of our favorite celebrities have super easy, straight forward, and easy to pronounce names.

Others, however, do not.

Saoirse Ronan is probably the first celeb in your mind that you know you say her name wrong. Chiwetel Ejiofor, too.

Never Have I Ever’s Maitreyi Ramakrishnan recently spoke about the mispronunciation of her name.

“Names are so important, and I find that it’s a big part of your identity — it personally is for me. I love my name so, so much. And constantly, I get people saying, ‘Oh, you don’t even know how to say your own name right.’ It’s like, ‘No, no, no, I do. I do know how to say my own name right,’” she shared in a voice note. “Because the reality is, no one knows how to say someone else’s name except for the person themselves, you know? Like, this is my name. I’m sorry, but I get to call the shots here. There is one answer and that answer is my own. There’s no discussion for that.”

As our favorite celebs, we owe it to them to get their names right.

JustJared.com has gathered up a list of 20 celebrities whose names fans have a difficult time pronouncing. After hearing the correct way to say it, you’ll never get it wrong again!

'Never Have I Ever' Star Maitreyi Ramakrishnan Talks Possible Season Two

Maitreyi Ramakrishnan is opening up about a possible season two for her breakout Netflix show, Never Have I Ever.

Speaking with Variety, the 18-year-old actress has some ideas of what she’d like to see in the potential new season.

“Three main things — understanding that she needs to be more appreciative of her family and her friends because her friends do a lot for her. Her friends really are her day ones,” Maitreyi shared. “And also understanding where her mother’s coming from.”

She continues, “That is something that we’ll be able to have a lot of audiences relate to, understanding where our parents are coming from even though they might not go about doing certain things the best way possible.”

Another thing that Maitreyi would like to see the show tackle is “the idea of approaching that grief — confronting it, having that battle, even though it’s something uncomfortable to think about, [but] actually just running toward it and facing it, dealing with it head on.”

The third thing is Devi “embracing her culture because that is so important in a world where identity is everything. It’s how you portray yourself. It’s how you show yourself to the world and how everybody will view you, but also how you accept yourself. And I think if Devi does those magic three, she might be a little bit more at peace with herself.”

If you missed it, the show was #1 in a ton of countries on Netflix. See co-creator Mindy Kaling‘s reaction here!
