Fans of the Fast & Furious film franchise had the chance to drive off in Paul Walker’s bright orange 1993 Toyota Supra from the original 2001 movie. The customized racing car was one of a few built specifically for the shoot and was driven by Walker in the climatic final scene of The Fast and The Furious. The car was expected to fetch around $200,000. It went for $185,000 yesterday to an unknown buyer.
Liam Payne confirmed that Zayn Malik quit One Direction for his fiancée, Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards. Payne was on England’s Capital FM “Breakfast” show yesterday, and, when asked why Malik left the band, he said, “He wanted to go and spend some time with his family and missus.” Payne said he missed Malik, but noted, “I mean, you know, he had to do what he had to do, really for himself.” He added that being in One Direction is “like any other job really, sometimes you have to move on because you’re not enjoying what you’re doing as much.” Payne noted that Malik felt he needed to “spend some time” with his “missus,” Perrie Edwards.
George Clooney is telling us more about his proposal to Amal. “It happened pretty quickly. I knew fairly quickly that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with Amal.” Clooney added, “When I asked her…we had never talked about it…there wasn’t, like, ‘Hey, maybe we should get married.’ I literally I dropped it on her.” And he even details where he popped the question to the stunning brunette. Clooney said they were at his Studio City, California home. And playing in the background were hits sung by his aunt Rosemary Clooney. Her songs include Mambo Italiano and Beautiful Brown Eyes. The songbird died in 2002. “She just kept saying, ‘Oh my God’ and ‘Wow.’ And we just sat there,” he said. After a while, the Gravity star wanted an answer. “Finally, I just said, ‘Listen.’ You know, I’m 53, at the time, or 52, I think, at the time, and I said, ‘You know, I’ve been on my knee now for about 28 minutes. So I gotta get an answer out of this, ’cause I’m gonna throw a hip out,’” Clooney added.
The Late Show with David Letterman comes to an end after 33 years on Wednesday night. This is going to be a tearful, but fun show, according to Producers. The final episode includes surprises, memorable highlights and the last Top Ten List. A couple of tributes from other late night hosts took place this week. On Monday on “The Tonight Show,” Jimmy Fallon gave an emotional tribute, calling Dave a “game changer”. Meanwhile, Jimmy Kimmel Live will be a re-run tonight. This was his own personal decision out of respect to Dave.
