Rosie Perez Just Called Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson for Not Following His Instructions About Her Oscars dress.
On Thursday, ‘The Flight Attendant’ star appeared on ‘The Daily Show With Trevor Noah’ and revealed how Snipes and Harrelson dropped the ball during their Oscars reunion last month.
“I was pissed at them. I just told them, ‘I have a train’ she said to Noah, referring to her elegant red dress. “Just pick it up…inflate it, let it go and let me out. They said, ‘Okay.’ And then I see on the reading that they held it all the time, cracking.
the trio reunited on stage — in honor of the basketball comedy’s 30th anniversary — to present the Cinematography Oscar, which went to Greig Fraser for “Dune.”
So what was wrong?
“They were stoned! Perez said.
It was a big night for the Oscar- and Emmy-nominated actor. In addition to the “White Men Can’t Jump” reunion, it was the first time in 28 years that Perez had been invited back at the Oscars since his nomination in 1994 for his supporting role in “Without fear.”
“White Men Can’t Jump,” Ron Shelton’s 1992 classic, will soon get the reboot treatment, with a screenplay from “blackish” creator Kenya Barris. Grammy-nominated rapper Jack Harlow is about to make his acting debut as the star of the upcoming remake. Sinqua Walls will play opposite Harlow, according to Deadline.
