50 Cent threw one of the worst first ceremonial pitches ever last night before the Mets-Pirates game at Citi Field. The rapper launched one way wide of Mets catcher Anthony Recker and could then be seen bursting into laughter. (Seriously, what choice did he have?) The announcers are silent at first, then give the no-brainer assessment, "His first pitch was not great," adding, "Juuust a bit outside." Obviously, the video quickly went viral.
Robert De Niro opens up about his late father Robert De Niro Sr., an openly gay NYC artist, in his new documentary Remembering the Artist: Robert De Niro, Sr. Speaking to Out magazine about the film, which takes a look at his dad's professional and personal life, De Niro explains, "It was my responsibility to make a documentary about him. I was always planning on doing it, but never did." The Oscar-winning actor, 70, also reveals that his dad struggled with his sexuality, "being from that generation, especially from a small town upstate." He admits, "I was not aware, much, of it. I wish we had spoken about it much more... for my kids, I want them to stop and take a moment and realize that you sometimes have to do things now instead of later, because later may be 20 years from now -- and that's too late." The film airs June 9 on HBO.
Rom-com fans, rejoice! It's been announced that a sequel to the box office hit My Big Fat Greek Wedding is in the works. The original stars, Nia Vardalos and John Corbett, are set to return. Vardalos will write and direct while Rita Wilson and Tom Hanks will once again do the producing. "Now that I’m experiencing motherhood, I’m ready to write the next chapter of my family story,' Vardalos says of the sequel. "Of course a few jaded folks in the press corps will claim I ran out of money or just want to kiss John Corbett again. One of these things is true."
