Candace Cameron Bure Reveals She’s Spoken to JoJo Siwa Following ‘Rudest Celebrity’ Backlash

Published

on

Candace Cameron Bure is finally addressing Jojo Siwa labeling her as the “rudest celebrity” she’s ever met. The Full House star says she wanted to get to the bottom of it and contacted the 19-year-old Internet sensation. And now? It’s “all good!”

Bure, 46, took to Instagram on Tuesday and posted a video she jokingly dubbed as “Candace’s Car Chronicles,” in which she explained that she was “shocked” after Siwa’s TikTok post. Bure says she immediately reached out through a mutual friend, then through her manager before finally firing off a DM to get down to brass tacks.

“So, I was finally able to talk to JoJo this morning. I called her, and we had a great conversation,” Bure explained. “And she was like, ‘Hey, how you doing?’ And I said, well, I’ve been better. What happened?”

Bure goes on to explain she met Siwa once at the Kelly Clarkson Show and that the encounter went great. Bure said Siwa agreed, but that still left Bure left wondering what triggered the “rude celebrity” label. As Bure explains it, Siwa, initially, didn’t want to dish the deets but she ultimately revealed that the comment stems from an encounter nearly a decade ago.

“She said, ‘You know, I met you at the Fuller House premiere and I was 11 years old,'” Bure explained, “’and we were all on the red carpet and I had come up to you and I said, Can I have a picture with you and you said to me not right now. And then proceeded to do what you were doing, and take pictures with other people on the red carpet.'”

Bure says she apologized to Siwa and added that the So You Think You Can Dance judge responded saying, “Yeah, no, no, no. You weren’t even mean! And I get it now as an adult.”

The Fuller House star added that Siwa said she didn’t think the “silly” TikTok video would get so much attention. Whatever the case, Bure says she and Siwa “had all the feels and it was all good.” She added, “There’s no drama. That’s the tea.”

Bure on Monday took to her Instagram Story and posted a bible verse, though it’s unclear if it was in response to Siwa.

“Trust the Lord always. Isaiah 26:4,” Bure posted along with a photo of yellow flowers read, not addressing Siwa’s shade whatsoever. 

On Sunday in a TikTok post, Siwa revealed that Bure was the “rudest celebrity” she’s ever met. “Pool day = exposed hahahha,” she captioned the video.  

During a TikTok challenge, Siwa — wearing a light blue bikini — holds her phone up to the camera, and when “Rudest Celebrity I’ve Met” flashes across the screen, she quickly flips her phone to reveal a picture of Bure. The blink-or-you-will-miss-it moment was captured by eagle-eyed fans who were able to screenshot the video and see the picture. 

Also amid the challenge, Siwa revealed that her celebrity crush is Zendaya, and Miley Cyrus is the “nicest” celebrity she’s met. Siwa didn’t end the game without throwing a little more shade in someone else’s direction.  

When the prompt flashed “Celebrity that did me dirty,” the Dance Moms alum flipped her phone to reveal a picture of SpongeBob SquarePants — seemingly shading Nickelodeon. In April, Siwa spoke out against the network when she revealed that they did not invite her to the 2022 Kids’ Choice Awards.

Siwa is no stranger to shade, especially when it’s directed towards her. In June, the Dancing With the Stars alum spoke to ET about the Twitter trolls who didn’t feel she was qualified enough to take on her latest role as a judge of So You Think You Can Dance.  

“Listen, I’m the first one to hate on myself,” she said. “Like, you cannot tell me anything that I haven’t already told myself. However, when you are saying something about me that is blatantly not true, that drives me mad.” 

Siwa added, “And I don’t like being that person that’s like, ‘I am good at this,’ but if I had to put a list of things down of things I know the most about, dance would be number one on that list,” she added. “So, when people are saying that I’m not knowledgeable enough to be a judge, I’m just like, ‘Ya just don’t know, ya just sound silly.'”

Sarah Hyland Threatened to Walk Out of Her Own Wedding to Wells Adams If He Didn’t Do This One Thing

Published

on

Sarah Hyland had specific instructions for Wells Adams on their wedding day. On Monday’s episode of The Kelly Clarkson Show, the Modern Family star confirms that she requested that Adams bring the tears during their nuptials. 

“Yes,” Hyland tells Clarkson after she asks her about the moment. “I actually, specifically, verbatim said, ‘If I don’t see you crying when I walk down the aisle, I’m turning around.’ And he did cry.”

Hyland, 32, and Adams, 38, tied the knot during a star-studded ceremony in August. The pair, finally, made it to the altar following a three-year engagement.  

The ceremony, which was held in Santa Barbara, California, was officiated by Hyland’s Modern Family co-star, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who stepped in to officiate when their co-star, Ty Burrell, had a family emergency.  

“So, I sent a text message to Jesse, ’cause we’re obviously very, very close and I was like, ‘Fake TV uncle, real-life friend, Tony Award-winning Jesse Tyler Ferguson, will you marry us?’ And he so graciously did it,” she said of asking the actor to step in.  

Hyland also adds that Ferguson flashed his clergy badge the entire evening. 

Other Modern Family alums in attendance included Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ariel Winter and Nolan Gould. 

Married life has been “amazing” for the Pitch Perfect: Bumper in Berlin star. During a recent chat with ET, Hyland gave an update on life since saying “I do.”  

“Wells and I keep saying we wish we were guests at our own wedding,” Hyland joked, explaining that the celebration was truly wild. Hyland added, “It’s really great. We’re feeling very good about everything. For me, I was like, ‘I feel like a grown-up now!'” 

In October, Adams dished to ET about married life and his and Hyland’s plans when it comes to expanding their family. 

“I think eventually [we want kids], but we’re both so busy right now. I’ve got two shows out right now,” Adams said of Bachelor in Paradise and Best in Dough, before adding of his wife, “She just did Love Island. She’s got [Play-Doh] Squished coming out in November. [Pitch Perfect:] Bumper in Berlin is also coming out pretty soon. She’s got a movie that she’s going to work on I think pretty soon, as well.”

He added, “I think we’re just going to try to focus on work for a little bit and then maybe down the road have a couple kids.”

Chloë Grace Moretz Got Candid About Having Older Men “Infantilize” Her As A Child Star

Published

on

Chloë Grace Moretz is getting super candid about her experiences navigating the Hollywood industry as a child star.

Chloë was just 6 when she landed her first movie role in Heart of the Beholder in 2005. The year prior, she briefly featured in the CBS drama series The Guardian.

She gained prominence in the industry at the age of 12 after starring in the hit 2010 film Kick-Ass alongside Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Nicolas Cage.

By 14, had Chloë landed her first leading project with Carrie (2013), in which she played the titular character, Carrie White. She later went on to appear in several popular films, including Neighbors 2 and If I Stay.

But in spite of her years of experience in the industry, Chloë still found herself being “shot down” by others — most of whom, she says, were older men — when trying to bring her ideas to the table.

On the Reign With Josh Smith podcast this week, Chloë, now 25, opened up about having to deal with people on set who were “unhappy with a young woman” in her position.

“It was always odd from my first leading role when I was 14 in Carrie,” she said. “It was always really interesting to see who would be really unhappy with a young woman.”

“At that point, I had already worked for so many years — almost 10 years — and as I continued through having more important roles on set as I grew up, it was always very interesting to see the pushback that I would get from a lot of people,” she went on.

“The majority of it was older men for sure who would infantilize me,” Chloë said. “If I had real things to bring to the table, a lot of the time it would get shot down.”

“It was a really wild power struggle and power dynamic as a young girl who had worked for already 10, 11, 12 years, throughout my teenage years and was the lead of movies, but was still a kid in every sense of the word,” she continued.

“I felt like I was always really fighting against trying to figure out how to conduct myself in a way that I’ll be respected, so I can be respected on set and given the credit that I felt that I deserved,” she said.

“To have a voice in the same game when I’m playing characters that are my age, I’m advocating for female characters of my exact age at the time. And having to even advocate to an older man on behalf of your 14-, 15-, 16-year-old self is a really, really crazy kind of mindfuck,” she added.

Chloë said she learned to be “very sweet” and “back-footed” in how she approached these older men with her ideas.

“It taught me how to propose questions and in a way to make the ideas their ideas, so then it would come back around and be like, ‘Oh my god, what a novel idea that you have on behalf of my character that I totally did not propose to you in no special way,’” she said.

“It was an interesting dynamic and as I grew up and as my characters grew up, I always had to be very sweet and very kind of back-footed in the way that I proposed things, but strong,” she added.

Elsewhere on the podcast, Chloë discussed how she experienced “anxiety and guilt” after getting used to “people-pleasing.” She said, “I always operated for a long time under this guise of what I wanted to achieve outwardly. … Even just in my small groups in my life and people around me, I was just people-pleasing.”

Chloë’s latest comments come just two months after she opened up about struggling with anxiety and body dysmorphia thanks to a “horrific” viral meme about her physique.

The meme, which features an edited photo of Chloë alongside Family Guy character Legs Go All the Way Up Griffin, saw the young actor trending across social media when it was first created in 2016.

“I’ve actually never really talked about this, but there was one meme that really affected me, of me walking into a hotel with a pizza box in my hand,” Chloë told Hunger magazine in September. “And this photo got manipulated into a character from Family Guy with the long legs and the short torso, and it was one of the most widespread memes at the time.”

“Everyone was making fun of my body and I brought it up with someone and they were like, ‘Oh, shut the fuck up, it’s funny,’” she recalled.

Chloë said she became “severely anxious” anytime she was photographed as a result of the public mockery, and she wound up becoming a recluse.

“I basically became a recluse,” she said. “It was great because I got away from the photographers and I was able to be myself, and to have so many experiences that people didn’t photograph, but at the same time, it made me severely anxious when I was photographed. My heart rate would rise and I would hyperventilate.”

Will Smith explains how he talked to his nephew, 9, about Oscars slap

Published

on

Will Smith said his infamous slap at the 2022 Academy Awards ceremony was the result of “a rage that had been bottled for a really long time.”

In an interview on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” the actor opened up about why he slapped Chris Rock, and how, after the incident, his 9-year-old nephew’s reaction broke his heart.

“We came home, and he had stayed up late to see his Uncle Will,” Smith said. “We’re sitting in my kitchen, and he’s on my lap and he’s holding the Oscar. And he’s just like, ‘Why did you hit that man Uncle Will?'”

“D— it!” Smith recalled of his reaction, wiping away tears. “Why are you trying to Oprah me?”

Smith gave more details from the ceremony, which Noah described as what he thought was “one of the best days of your life and one of the worst days” of Smith’s life.

“That was a horrific night, as you can imagine,” Smith said. “You know, there’s many nuances and, and complexities to it, but at the end of the day, I just lost it.”

“It was a lot of things,” he continued. “It was the little boy that watched his father beat up his mother, you know, all of that just bubbled up … that’s not who I want to be.”

Smith, who is promoting the film “Emancipation” — his first movie since the troubling incident — said he is afraid the team behind the movie may get denied awards consideration because of his actions.

“These top artists in the world have done some of the best work of their career. And the idea that they might be denied because of me is like…” Smith trails off, before groaning and hitting his head against the desk.

“That is killing me dead,” he added.

Smith slapped Rock after the comedian was on stage at the March 27 Oscars ceremony.

Rock cracked a joke about Smith’s wife’s bald head while presenting an award. Jada Pinkett Smith has alopecia, an autoimmune disorder that causes hair loss.

Smith issued several apologies in the days and weeks following the incident, and resigned from the from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on April 1.

A week later, the Academy banned Smith from all of the organization’s events for 10 years. His resignation and ban do not prevent him from being nominated for or winning future awards.

Rock has performed stand-up shows since the slap, and addressed the controversy during a performance in July.

“Anyone who says words hurt has never been punched in the face,” Rock said, later adding, “I’m not a victim. Yeah, that s— hurt … But I shook that s— off and went to work the next day. I don’t go to the hospital for a paper cut.”
