KTLA anchor Sam Rubin confuses Samuel L. Jackson with Laurence Fishburne on live TV

Actor Samuel L Jackson has scolded a US TV host who mistook him for fellow movie star Laurence Fishburne. Blunder: Los Angeles entertainment anchor, Sam Rubin, pictured left, confused Samuel L. Jackson, right, with Laurence Fishburne on live TV Monday morning, making for an incredibly awkward interview KTLA reporter Sam Rubin began an interview with the actor by asking about his recent Super Bowl commercial. He was referring to an advert for the new Kia sedan – in which Fishburne reprised his role from The Matrix. “We don’t all look alike! We may all be black and famous but we don’t all look alike,” said Jackson. “There’s more than one black guy doing a commercial.” He continued: “I’m the ‘What’s in your wallet?’ black guy. He’s the car black guy. “Morgan Freeman is the other credit card black guy. You only hear his voice, though, so you probably won’t confuse him with Laurence Fishburne,” said the star, who was appearing live from Atlanta. Rubin, from his studio in Hollywood, apologised on numerous occasions and tried to steer Jackson onto a discussion about the revival of Robocop – the original reason for the interview. “Let’s talk about Robocop,” he said. “Oh hell, no,” replied Jackson. “There must be a very short line for your job,” he continued. The actor continued to rib Rubin for his mistake, asking if he would have trouble telling apart his co-stars Gary Oldman and Michael Keaton. “You do know who they all are though, right? Just in case they have some of them on the show. Do some work. Do some research. Make sure you don’t confuse them with those other white actors,” he said

Selena Gomez enjoys a relaxing break on a lake as she puts ‘rehab stay’ behind her

Selena Gomez has thanked fans for their support following the news she secretly entered rehab earlier this year. Many fans were surprised when a rep for the Disney star confirmed she’d voluntarily checked into a facility in Arizona in early January for two weeks of treatment. The reasons for the 21-year-old’s stay have not been confirmed but the rep did say it was “not for substance abuse.” Now, on the road to recovery, Selena posted a photo to Instagram on Monday night (10 February) showing herself looking happy and healthy as she enjoyed a day out at a lake with friends. Speaking to fans, she said: “I’ve done everything I could to the best of my ability. Thank you for the unconditional love and cyber hugs. You inspire me.” Selena’s stint in rehab came after she cancelled a string of tour dates in Australia, saying at the time: “My fans are so important to me and I would never want to disappoint them. “But it has become clear to me and those close to me that after many years of putting my work first, I need to spend some time on myself in order to be the best person I can be.” A source added to People that Selena simply needed some time to herself as she’s been working nonstop since she was 15. Meanwhile, in other Selena news, it was reported last week that a man caught creeping around the grounds of her Los Angeles property has been jailed for 120 days.

Kristen Stewart Talks Love Life and Shares ‘Embarrassing’ Poem

The ‘Camp X-Ray’ actress says in the newest issue of Marie Claire, ‘I stand by every mistake I’ve ever made. So judge away.’ Kristen Stewart graces the cover of Marie Claire’s latest issue. For her cover story, the brunette beauty most known for her role in “Twilight Saga” movies discusses her love life, admits her awkwardness, and shares a poem called “My Heart Is a Wiffle Ball/Freedom Pole ” which she wrote during a road trip through Texas last year. Stewart was caught having a fling with married director Rupert Sanders who directed her in “Snow White and the Huntsman” while dating “Twilight” co-star Robert Pattinson. They briefly broke up before reconciling and splitting again after “Twilight” ended. “You don’t know who you will fall in love with. You just don’t. You don’t control it,” she says. “Some people have certain things, like, ‘That’s what I’m going for,’ and I have a subjective version of that. I don’t pressure myself … If you fall in love with someone, you want to own them – but really, why would you want that? You want them to be what you love. I’m much too young to even have an answer for that question,” the actress continues. “I stand by every mistake I’ve ever made,” she adds. “So judge away.” Of living in spotlight, Stewart says, “People are like, ‘She just can’t handle’ – for lack of a better word – ‘the spotlight.’ No, actually, I can’t, and this is totally who I am.” She goes on, “I don’t try to force it or turn it into something else or fabricate this personality … so I totally agree when people say I’m, like, the most awkward person.” Commenting on the poem she shared to the magazine, the “Camp X-Ray” star utters, “Oh, my God, it’s so embarrassing. I can’t believe I’m doing this.” Her poetry, she says, comes from the same place as her acting. “I like being able to hit on something, like, ‘There it is.’ I don’t want to sound so f**king utterly pretentious,” she explains, “but after I write something, I go, ‘Holy f**k, that’s crazy.’ It’s the same thing with acting: If I do a good scene, I’m always like, ‘Whoa, that’s really dope.’ ” © AceShowbiz.com
