Arnold Schwarzenegger Surprises Kindergarten Cop Cast In Reunion Video

Arnold Schwarzenegger delightfully crashes a Kindergarten Cop virtual cast reunion. Having established himself as the world’s biggest action star through a series of hits like The Terminator, Commando and Predator, Schwarzenegger in 1988 tried something new by co-starring with Danny DeVito in the mismatched-pair comedy Twins.

To the surprise of many people at the time, Schwarzenegger did more than hold his own alongside comedy veteran DeVito in Twins, he actually stole the movie with his own comedic chops. Having shown the world he could do more than waste bad guys and deliver one-liners, Schwarzenegger went on to tackle another big acting challenge in 1990’s Kindergarten Cop, which pitted the action hero against an entire cast of precocious kid actors. Audiences approved of Schwarzenegger’s new, slightly softer and sillier style of cop movie as the film went on to gross $202 million at the box office.

30 years after Kindergarten Cop delighted Schwarzenegger fans, while adding “It’s not a tumor!” to the actor’s repertoire of famous one-liners, several of the movie’s former kid actors got together for a virtual reunion hosted by Yahoo! Entertainment. After spending quite awhile reminiscing about their roles in the still-beloved movie, the now-grown up kids of Kindergarten Cop got a big surprise when Schwarzenegger himself popped into the call to share his own memories about the movie. See the video in the space below (Schwarzenegger appears at the 35:26 mark):

Among the stories shared in the above video by Schwarzenegger and his delighted former castmates is an anecdote about how the famous “It’s not a tumor” line came about. As it turns out, director Ivan Reitman was the one who first recognized that the line would pass into Schwarzenegger lore forever, as the actor shared:

“There were certain lines that, because of my accent, the kids were laughing. So I would just be screaming, ‘It’s not a tumor, it’s not a tumor at all!’ and the kids would be laughing instead of being scared. Ivan told me, ‘If the kids are laughing at the way you sound, then I think the audience will laugh, too. And this is exactly what happened.”

Elsewhere in the video, Brian Wagner (who played William) talks about the scene where he had to spit up on Schwarzenegger, and reveals that the moment caused the action star to go off script. “The script was written so that Arnold would set me down. The first time it happened to him, he was so disgusted, he just dropped me.” Adam Wylie (who played Larry) also talked about the movie’s alternate ending, which would have gone down a dark road by having Schwarzenegger’s character die after being shot by the movie’s drug dealer bad guy. In the film as released, Schwarzenegger survives but retires from the police force to become a kindergarten teacher full time.

Kindergarten Cop obviously was not just a big hit, it had true impact on the culture by introducing the trope of the action star “softening” his image by starring in a movie with a kid or kids. In recent years, everyone from Dwayne Johnson (The Tooth Fairy) to Vin Diesel (The Pacifier) to Dave Bautista (My Spy) has tried the move, but none has succeeded as well as Schwarzenegger with Kindergarten Cop. As the reunion video shows, the kids who starred in the movie still have fond memories about the experience, as does Schwarzenegger himself. This in itself is a heartwarming holiday tale.

‘I am officially off the market’: When Margot Robbie revealed she made the ‘conscious’ decision of not dating actors

Margot Robbie revealed her decision to not date actors because of the media scrutiny that came with a public relationship of two high-profile actors
Back in 2015, A-lister Margot Robbie made a declaration that she would not be dating any actors. The actress may have alluded to her fiance Tom Ackerley, who she married the following year in 2016. In an exclusive interview with Marie Claire, she revealed that being in a relationship as an actor herself came with its own set of challenges. She believed that dating someone who was popular would add on to the media scrutiny.

Margot Robbie opened up on why she made a conscious decision to not date actorsTalking to Marie Claire, she claimed, “I am officially off the market.” She then shared the reasoning behind her decision and added, “I made a conscious decision not to date actors.” She continued to explain, “But not because I hate actors. That’s a nasty generalization to make, and that’s not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile, it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.”
The Barbie actress continued, “So two people with profiles, I figure it’s just double the amount of scrutiny, and I’d like to avoid that at all costs.” This came after reports of her locking lips with Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgard started making rounds. It was reported that she was caught kissing the actor during the Sundance Film Festival.

Margot Robbie revealed she opted for a minimal lifestyle even after becoming an actorIn the interview, Robbie also opened up about how she was adapting to fame. She shared, “I have a normal 24-year-old life. If I were a waitress, I’d probably have the exact same lifestyle. I’d go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people.”
However, Margot Robbie tied the knot with Tom Ackerley who is an English producer and actor. The duo met on the sets of 2013 movie Suite Francaise where Tom was working as an assistant director. Post marriage, both of them launched their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.

‘Rocky’ Was Quite Different In His Original Screenplay, Sylvester Stallone Claims

Sylvester Stallone took his friend’s advice on a rewrite of the original screenplay to Rocky. A few tweaks later, he was on his way to major success.
In the new Netflix documentary Sly, Stallone discussed how he initially conceived of the project, which had a much harder edge. In the early version, Rocky was depicted as a “thuggish” character, inspired by Martin Scorsese’s crime drama, Mean Streets.

But Stallone’s perspective changed when a friend read the script and thought the boxer was too cruel for audiences to actually care about him.
Stallone recalled her crying.

“She goes, ‘I hate Rocky. I hate him. He’s cruel. He hits people. He beats them up.’”
Stallone took it to heart, and asked what he could do to soften the character.

“I said, ‘what if you stop short of it?’ Like, maybe he almost did. He could have, that’s his job, but he doesn’t?’ ‘That’d be nice,’” he added. “I said, ‘What if he had a girlfriend or something?’ ‘Yeah, that’s nice.’ So I go back, start writing that: ‘Girlfriend. Nice.’”
$117 million in box office later, a franchise was born.

Stallone also revealed that actor Dolph Lundgren sent him to the hospital during one fight scene in Rocky IV.
“Dolph Lundgren… he pulverized me,” Stallone says in the documentary. “Later that night, my heart started to swell—which happens when the heart hits the chest—and then my blood pressure went up to 260, and they thought I was going to be talking to angels. Next thing I know, I’m in intensive care, where I’m surrounded by nuns, and I thought, ‘OK, that’s curtains.’”
Stallone was in the hospital for nine days following the incident, praying for “one more round.”
“For the first minute of the fight, it is going to be a free-for-all,” Stallone told Lundgren. The Swedish actor joked in a separate interview that all he did was “obey orders,” explaining, “[Stallone] was the boss. I did what he told me.”
Doctors allegedly told Stallone that he received a blow to the ribs that made his heart rattle around in his ribcage, a condition typically seen in head-on collisions. “I did hit a bus, of sorts,” Stallone joked.
