Aziz Ansari: I was sitting there with friend and he’s like ‘Aziz, what you’ve been up to in L.A.?’ and I said - ‘Shut up. Because 50 Cent is sitting over there and i need to hear everything he says’. 50 Cent did not disappoint. Okay. He ordered a grapefruit soda, right. Waiter brings him grapefruit soda. And 50 Cent said the greatest thing anyone could ever say when you see a grapefruit soda. He looks at the waiter and goes - ’Why isn’t this purple?’ And it took me a few seconds and then I realized - Oh my God. 50 Cent has no idea what a grapefruit is. I couldn’t believe it. I was like ‘Everybody in restaurant you need to shup up right now because a waiter is about to explain to a grown man what a grapefruit is!’ I just couldn’t believe it! How does he not know what a grapefruit is? He’s been rich for so long. He must’ve run into a grapefruit every now and then. I do ‘okay’ and I see grapefruit at least every other day.
We’re still not speaking, so I don’t know exactly what her side of it is. (x)

INTERVIEWER: To play a stammerer, is that a hard thing to do?
COLIN FIRTH: Well, yeah, it’s not an easy thing to do. I was very worried about being authentic because there are people who really do live with it and I think it’s something that causes tremendous suffering. It’s not often that actors are given—well, yeah—I mean, so aware of it, the sense of responsibility. Because frankly, if something isn’t represented very often in film—and it isn’t—if it is, it’s usually to mock it. I think it’s something we need to think about: that there’s still a disability somewhere that somehow is legitimized to pastiche and, uh, you know, you don’t get to do that, really, anymore. So it has been used rather—you know, the brilliant performance by Brad Dourif, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest there was a brilliant performance by David Jacoby also playing an unwilling monarch who is placed, you know—we call it a monarch—but the emperor-knight Claudius. But it doesn’t address the stammer as the issue itself. [The King’s Speech] is one of the stories as far as i know that’s ever been put to film which addresses how debilitating and how traumatizing it is. I thought well, you know, I’ve got to go as far as I can to make this authentic otherwise I would be letting quite a lot of people down. I was very aware of that.
