‘Spider-Man’ Stars Tom Holland and Zendaya Talk MCU Thrills and Coupledom — on and Off Screen



What do you call two spiders who just got married? Newly-webs!

With all the chemistry Tom Holland and Zendaya have in the new “Spider-Man: No Way Home” movie, maybe that’ll happen sometime soon.

The plot is under wraps, but the cast told me we’re going to be screaming — guaranteed.

Peter Parker is in a pickle. In “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” his identity as the friendly neighborhood web-slinger has already been unmasked, meaning the poor guy has to balance his normal life with being a superhero — in tights! Sounds exhausting.

Tom Holland (as Peter Parker/Spider-Man): “This is all my fault. I can’t save everyone.”

But when Peter asks Doctor Strange for some help…

Benedict Cumberbatch (as Dr. Stephen Strange): “When you botched that spell where you wanted everyone to forget that Peter Parker is Spider-Man…”

The stakes become even more dangerous…

Benedict Cumberbatch (as Dr. Stephen Strange): “We started getting some visitors from every universe.”

As it turns out, the multiverse has really bad traffic.

Alfred Molina (as Dr. Otto Octavious/Doc Ock): “Hello, Peter.”

Tom Holland: “This movie is something that is celebrating over 20 years of cinema, which brings a multitude of possibilities, but also a multitude of problems. We have villains coming back. It’s incredible.”

Zendaya, who is Tom’s real-life girlfriend, plays MJ, Peter’s girlfriend … and if there’s an Oscar for falling off of buildings and bridges, can we just give it to her already?

Alex Miranda: “Your facial expressions were just giving me life.”

Zendaya: “Those are all very honest faces. I love it, especially when we get to do ones together. Those are the best ones, because it’s just so weird. Like, this is my life. You always step outside of yourself, and I’m like, ‘I can’t believe this is what I’m doing today.’”

But, hey, it’s a job just like anything else.

Zendaya: “Like, it should never be normal to anyone, but to us, it’s like, ‘Do you want me to pop your eyes back in? Or you want me to unzip?’”

Now, since we can’t spoil any surprises, instead I asked Jacob Batalon, who plays Peter’s best friend, Ned, what range of emotions you’ll go through.

Alex Miranda: And, if you’re brave enough, in chronological order.”

Jacob Batalon: “I think, from the get-go, it’s pretty already on the edge of their seats. We know for a fact that you’ll be screaming no matter what.”

Tom Holland: “Absolutely.”

Jacob Batalon: “Screaming, yeah, crying, peeing in your pants, probably.”

By edge-of-your-seat action, I didn’t know they meant that.

Zendaya: “A mixture of all of those things at the same time.”

Jacob Batalon: “So, probably wear a diaper in the movie theater. So, yeah.”

Tom and Zendaya have been low key about their highly publicized romance, but with their red-hot careers, it’s nice to have someone who … gets it.

Tom Holland: “For us, to have someone that you can lean on — that you can call up and say, ‘You know, I’m really struggling with this,’ or, ‘I’m really worried about this,’ you know, we’re very lucky that we’ve been through this as a team, and we very much are a team. So, yeah, it has been very helpful.”

There are rumors “No Way Home” might have cameos from past “Spider-Man” stars Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. So far, the cast is denying it.

“Spider-Man: No Way Home” swings into theaters this Friday.

Biden Answers Inflation Query by Calling Fox Reporter SOB



WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden responded to a question about inflation on Monday by calling a Fox News reporter a vulgarity.

The president was in the East Room of the White House for a meeting of his Competition Council, which is focused on changing regulations and enforcing laws to help consumers deal with high prices. Reporters in the room shouted a number of questions after Biden’s remarks.

Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked Biden about inflation, which is at a nearly 40-year high and has hurt the president’s public approval. Doocy’s network has been relentlessly critical of Biden.

Doocy called out, “Do you think inflation is a political liability ahead of the midterms?”

Biden responded with sarcasm, “It’s a great asset — more inflation.” Then he shook his head and added, “What a stupid son of a [expletive].”

His comments were captured on video and by the microphone in front of him. Doocy laughed it off in a subsequent appearance on his network, joking, “Nobody has fact-checked him yet and said it’s not true.”

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The White House has insisted repeatedly that it is focused on curbing inflation, with Biden reorienting his entire economic agenda around the issue. But the president has also shown a willingness to challenge a media that he deems to be too critical, especially Fox News and Doocy.

At his news conference last week, Biden said to Doocy with sarcasm, “You always ask me the nicest questions.”

“I have a whole binder full,” the reporter answered.

“I know you do,” Biden said. “None of them make a lot of sense to me. Fire away.”

J.Lo, ‘Marry Me’ Co-stars Talk About Life Imitating Art in New Rom-com



Jennifer Lopez can do it all, except age. She definitely does not seem to age at all, but in her new movie “Marry Me, J.Lo’s playing a part that looks and sounds familiar. We’re not complaining, and neither are her castmates.

Jennifer Lopez (as Kat Valdez): “All right, let’s do it again from the top. (singing) Marry me, marry me, say yes. Marry me, marry me, say yes.”

Jennifer Lopez is ready to say “I do” in the new rom-com “Marry Me.”

Entertainment reporter: “In 36 hours, superstar Kat Valdez and Grammy-winning Bastian will perform their new song ‘Marry Me’ and exchange vows in front of a streaming audience of 20 million people.”

But when her soon-to-be fiance gets busted cheating on her, she decides to tie the knot with a random concertgoer played by Owen Wilson.

Character in “Marry Me”: “Do you, some guy, take Kat to be your lawfully wedded wife?”

Owen Wilson (as Charlie Gilbert): “Okay.”

J.Lo says playing a mega-superstar singer who’s looking for real love hits really close to home.

Jennifer Lopez: “It was so much about it that, really, I could understand like nobody else could understand.”

Even to the point that…

Jennifer Lopez: “Kind of bearing my soul. It was actually a little bit more uncomfortable than playing a character that is nothing like you, because this is you kinda like really bringing real, personal life experience into a role in a way that I’ve never had to.”

Owen Wilson says that connection is what made J.Lo the best person to play Kat.

Owen Wilson: “You can’t imagine anyone but Jennifer Lopez playing this part, just because it seems so perfect for her skill set.”

One of those skills being busting a move.

Owen Wilson: “Everyone was watching the monitor, even the security guys, just because it’s fun watching her dance. You definitely don’t need a double for her dancing.”

Sarah Silverman, who plays his BFF in the movie, agrees.

Sarah Silverman: “We were at a J.Lo concert where she’s playing someone else named Kat Valdez. But it was unbelievable to watch live.”

J.Lo also got to reunite with Maluma for the movie, who she’s made music with before.

Jennifer Lopez: “Working with Maluma was a joy. It was so much fun. This was his first movie, his first time acting, and he was a natural. He was a real natural. He’s like, ‘You know, I’m not this guy. This is not who I – I’m not Bastian.’ I go, ‘No, I know. I know.”

Jennifer Lopez (as Kat Valdez): “I think we left smart six weeks ago.”

“Marry Me” asks for moviegoers’ commitment beginning Feb. 11.
