Jack Black Throws Serious Shade At Leonardo DiCaprio!

Jack Black Touches Down At LAX

LOL, I love it.

Jack Black is not my favorite dude by ANY stretch of the imagination, but I’m loving the fact that he’s saying what I’m thinking: that Leonardo DiCaprio probably didn’t do the best acting job and that he’s needy and kinda lame.

The Kung Fu Panda star talked to The Fix this week, saying his Kung Fu Panda 3 co-star Bryan Cranston – who was also nominated in the same category as Leo – ‘is a better actor.’ DANG!

“He [Cranston] was never going to win it against Leo DiCap in the Revenant,” Jack said. But while the reporter said “it was Leo’s year,” Jack stood firmly by his friend and co-star Bryan, saying: “Bryan Cranston is a better actor. You heard it here. Bryan Cranston is better [at] acting than Leo DiCap. But, Leo DiCap was like dying a lot, he was like wheezing and coughing blood. That’s Oscar. That’s what you’ve got to do.”

During the chat, Jack also seemed to take another swipe at Leonardo while discussing his 2011 comedy and drama film Bernie. The reporter said Jack should have received an Oscar nomination for the film, which prompted Jack to accuse Leonardo of stealing his ‘spot’.

“Thank you. Why didn’t I get an Oscar nomination for that? Oh you know why, I think Leo DiCap took my spot. Because that was the year he had that really bad movie that got Oscar nominated. What was that, where he like played a president that was kind of bald. Did you see that?”

When the reporter didn’t manage to immediately name Leonardo’s 2011 crime and drama film J.Edgar, Jack answered his own question, and said ‘no one’ saw the film. The reporter then pointed out Leonardo actually didn’t get a nomination for that particular role.

LOL. OBVIOUSLY, Bryan Cranston is a better actor overall- not even just Leo, but just, a really, really good actor. And Black was saying something a lot of Oscar voters were saying –chill, Leo. You got your little golden man.

Jack Black…Secret Member of Smashmouth?

Jack Black Touches Down At LAX

For real, though, Jack Black might be arriving at LAX in these photos, but his fashion sense never left 1998.

The comedic actor arrived on a flight at LAX airport on Saturday looking like he fell through a tear in the time space continuum in a discount aisle of TJ MAXX circa 1997. Jack has been busy as of late promoting his new ‘Goosebumps’ movie which contributes to the idea that HE IS NOT OF THIS DECADE. Goosebumps? Terrible Chinese dragon shirt? Weird Oakley-esque sunglasses? Something’s not right here and I can’t quite put my finger on it, but I DO know a fashion emergency when I see it.

What do you think is up with Jack Black’s lame-o fashion as of late?

FIRST LOOK! Jack Black and Matthew McConaughey in ‘Bernie’

‘Bernie’ has Jack Black and director Richard Linklater reuniting for the first time since their 2006 smash hit ‘School of Rock’. This true-life comedic drama follows a mortician (Jack Black) who falls for a much older lady (Shirley MacLaine). Bernie will open the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 16th.

SYNOPSIS: In the tiny, rural town of Carthage, TX, assistant funeral director Bernie Tiede was one of the town’s most beloved residents.  He taught Sunday school, sang in the church choir and was always willing to lend a helping hand. Everyone loved and appreciated Bernie, so it came as no surprise when he befriended Marjorie Nugent, an affluent widow who was as well known for her sour attitude as her fortune. Bernie frequently traveled with Marjorie and even managed her banking affairs. Marjorie quickly became fully dependant on Bernie and his generosity and Bernie struggled to meet her increasing demands. Bernie continued to handle her affairs, and the townspeople went months without seeing Marjorie. The people of Carthage were shocked when it was reported that Marjorie Nugent had been dead for some time, and Bernie Tiede was being charged with the murder.

In this dark comedy, director Richard Linklater captures all the hilarity, friendliness, eccentricity and absolute strangeness of small-town Texas life.  Jack Black plays Bernie Tiede, Shirley MacLaine plays Mrs. Nugent, and Matthew McConaughey plays the town’s blustery real-life District Attorney, Danny Buck Davidson, who was determined to get to the bottom of the crime.  Co-written by Linklater and Skip Hollandsworth, BERNIE is a Mandalay Vision and Wind Dancer Films production.

PHOTOS: Angelina Jolie arrives at Cannes!

Angelina Jolie and the cast of ‘Kung Fu Panda 2’ arrive at the 64th Annual Cannes Film Festival today looking … thin. She’s just so tiny! I’m also very underwhelmed with her outfit. I don’t know – combined with her long, brown hair, it was just too much of the same color.

Sidenote: I watched Angelina Jolie on the Today Show this morning – and she’s very touchy-feely with Jack Black! Watch the video below.
