Kanye West Admits His Ego is His 'Biggest Achilles Heel,' Internet Calls Him a 'Loser'

3 March 2015 7:18 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Kanye West is back to having no filter.

The always outspoken 37-year-old rapper gave a lecture at the prestigious Oxford University on Monday, and true to form, gave us some gems that could only come from Kanye being Kanye. Speaking in "stream of consciousness," the "Only One" rapper opened up about everything from his egotistical reputation, getting overshadowed by Nicki Minaj on his own album, and why he considers intense The Matrix the "Bible of the post-information age."

But before you start calling him "crazy," Kanye admitted that he actually likes the term.

"That's one of my favorite ones ... to be called crazy," he said via Oxford University student newspaper The Tab. "People say I have a bad reputation. I think I've got the best reputation in the building. They want you to have a reputation of tucking your black nail polish into your pockets and sitting in the corner of the class, and not fighting »

Will Smith Shows Major Pda With Jada Pinkett-Smith At "Focus" Premiere

25 February 2015 4:30 PM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Will Smith still can't keep his hands off wife Jada Pinkett-Smith! The actor and his gorgeous wife attended the premiere of Smith's new flick "Focus" in Los Angeles on Tuesday. Will and Jada looked like they were having a lot of fun together on the red carpet, and the the 46-year-old even grabbed actress' booty while posing for photographers. The 43-year-old "Magic Mike Xxl" star looked stunning in her white strapless gown. Mrs. Smith completed her look with a slicked back ponytail and a bold red lip. Will looked equally handsome in his navy blue pinstriped suit. The couple's son Jaden Smith was also on-hand for the celebrations and posed for a pic with his famous parents at the "Focus" after-party at the W hotel in Hollywood.

‘Focus’ Gives Will Smith New Direction, Shot at Box Office Rebound

24 February 2015 3:46 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Will Smith’s reputation as one of Hollywood’s most bankable leading men will be on the line when the con man comedy “Focus” opens Friday for Warner Bros. That’s because “Focus” is Smith’s first film since “After Earth,” the pricey 2012 sci-fi bomb that he starred in with his son, Jaden Smith. Before that, enthusiastic foreign audiences offset disappointing domestic returns on the $225 million “Men in Black 3” in 2010, and 2008’s “Seven Pounds” failed to break out as well. In his latest outing, Smith plays an aging grifter trying to impart the wisdom of his trade to a young newcomer, »

Justin Bieber's 'Baby' Turns 5: See the Biebs Then & Now

19 February 2015 3:45 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Remember how adorable Justin Bieber was??

Sure the Biebs may not even be old enough to drink (although March 1 is fast approaching), but you can't argue that the guy has lived. You might not even realize that Justin has been active in music over half as long as The Beatles were, and for some reason that is just mind-blowing.

And then we remembered that today is the five year anniversary of the epic "Baby" music video that broke records and hearts everywhere. Turns out we're a little nostalgic for young Bieber.

Will Smith Calls 'After Earth' Excruciating

14 February 2015 10:19 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Will Smith is currently on the press circuit promoting his con man thriller Focus. While quite a lot of talk has turned to his upcoming DC Comics adventure Suicide Squad, which will once again reteam him with his Focus co-star Margot Robbie, he recently took some time out to reveal his true feelings about one of his biggest career failures After Earth.

Will Smith is one of the biggest stars on the planet. And that's because he routinely turns in great performances in fare that is liked by audiences and critics alike. But it hasn't always been smooth sailing for the rap superstar turned actor. Once known as Mr. July for opening a number of big summer movies, he had his first flop with 1999's Wild Wild West. It knocked him down for a short bit, but he quickly got up. And aside from the misunderstood 2008 holiday blockbuster Seven Pounds, »

Will Smith Calls 'After Earth' the 'Most Painful Failure of His Career'

13 February 2015 9:07 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Turns out, Will Smith wasn't too thrilled with After Earth either.

The 2013 M. Night Shyamalan sci-fi film starred both Will and his son Jaden Smith, and was one of the actor's box office bombs, grossing only $243 million globally ($27 million on opening weekend) on a $130 million production budget. When you compare this to his other films -- Hancock made $624 million while Hitch made $368 million-- it's easy to see why Smith saw this as a "failure."

He even tells Esquire magazine that the negative reviews of After Earth were more of a blow for him than Wild Wild West, which made a meager $57 million on a reported $170 million budget. At least After Earth made a $113 million profit!

"Wild Wild West was less painful than After Earth because my son was involved in After Earth, and I led him into it. That was excruciating »

Will Smith: 'After Earth was the most painful failure of my career'

13 February 2015 1:33 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Will Smith has described After Earth as "the most painful failure in [his] career".

The sci-fi movie, directed by M Night Shyamalan, was a rare box office failure for Will when it opened in summer 2013. The film bombed at the box office, taking just $60 million from Us cinemas on a budget of $130 million.

Speaking to Esquire, Will said that After Earth's failure hurt more than Wild Wild West because his son Jaden Smith was involved in the former.

"That was excruciating," he said of the film's reception. "What I learned from that failure is how you win. I got reinvigorated after the failure of After Earth.

"I had to dive into why it was so important for me to have number one movies. And I never would have looked at myself in that way.

"I was a guy who, when I was 15 my girlfriend cheated on me, and I decided »

Will Smith Calls ‘After Earth’ the ‘Most Painful Failure’ of His Career

12 February 2015 5:33 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Will Smith has opened up about “After Earth,” the 2013 sci-fi film in which his son Jaden Smith also starred, calling it the “most painful failure” of his career.

The comment, in an interview with Esquire, came after the reporter referenced a “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” quote from Smith’s TV aunt, who advised his character on an episode, “Don’t let success go to your head and success go to your heart.”

“That was a valuable lesson for me a few years ago with ‘After Earth,'” Smith said. “That was the most painful failure in my career.”

The Sony/Columbia pic, directed by M. Night Shyamalan, made $27 million on opening weekend and grossed a global $243 million on a reported production budget of $130 million. In comparison, in 2008, “Hancock,” the Smith-starring fantasy drama from Sony/Columbia, raked in $624 million globally and made $62 million on opening weekend. His rom-com “Hitch” made $368 globally and $43 million on opening weekend. »

Will Smith: Jaden Only Owns One Pair of Shoes!

12 February 2015 11:20 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

He grew up in Hollywood, but Jaden Smith isn't exactly spoiled. In fact, his dad says, the 16-year-old's wardrobe consists of one pair of shoes, three pairs of pants and five shirts - that's it. "He has refused to be a slave to money," Will Smith tells Esquire of his son's thriftiness. "I so respect that. The younger generation is less of an ownership generation, anyway." Though he eventually became the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Smith, 46, grew up less fortunate than Jaden, who's following in his father's footsteps as an actor. "It's such an interesting thing to watch, because I came from a middle-class background, »

9 February 2015 5:45 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Will Smith beefed up for his upcoming role in Focus, but it was his wife that provided the motivation.

Jada Pinkett Smith has a lot of hot men on set with her for Magic Mike Xxl, which meant Will had to step up to the plate.

He spoke to Et about how his wife influenced him to get into shape, "You got to be a lot of man to handle a lot of woman like that. So I felt really confident when she was going into that set, into that situation," he said. "I just had to make sure she had some beefcake at home too."

"Die With the Lie" in New Clip From 'Focus' (Will Smith, Margot Robbie)

9 February 2015 11:36 AM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

In case you've forgotten, Will Smith is still an actor. It seems like Mister Box Office has been absent from action in front of the camera for a little while, giving way for his son, Jaden Smith, to develop, while also producing for both film and TV. The actor will next be seen in the Warner Bros' con-man/romance "Focus," which opens February 27. It centers on an inexperienced female con artist who teams up with a more seasoned male con artist, and sparks fly between them as they go about their con-artist ways. Aussie actress Margot Robbie ("The Wolf of Wall Street"), co-stars alongside Smith, playing the inexperienced female con »
