How Jason Statham and 20 years younger Rosie Huntington maintain their relationship?

Jason Statham is 20 years older than his partner Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Their love story proves that “age is just a number.”

Rosie and Jason are one of the most beautiful couples in Hollywood. Their romance has lasted for almost 10 years. Rosie is a supermodel, an actress, and former Victoria’s Secret angel.

She became a model at the age of 16. So, she has been successful and rich from the very start.

Jason’s story, on the other hand, is quite different. He didn’t start his acting career until he was 32 years old. To make money, he sold fake watches and perfume on the streets. He was on the British national diving team as a teenager. He appeared in a few advertisements. In the ’90s, he was invited to be a part of a Tommy Hilfiger advertising campaign as an athlete.

Soon, Guy Ritchie offered him a role in “Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels.” That’s how his breathtaking acting career took off. Jason and Rosie met in 2010 at the Coachella Music Festival. They almost immediately started dating. Unlike many other celebrity couples, they slowly and carefully progressed with their relationship. They took one step at a time. They weren’t quick to expose their feelings and liked to keep things private.

After almost six months, the couple finally began to openly go out together.

They caught a lot of media attention because of their 20 year age difference. But it never bothered them. Jason is known for his “Macho Man Type” roles… But Rosie loved him for something else. She said in an interview… “I was attracted by his incredible sense of humor, not the image of the macho guy that he portrays in movies. When a person knows how to make you laugh at the right moment, your world changes.”

She also appreciates that she always feels supported by him. In January 2016, Rosie caught the attention of the media. There was a diamond ring on her finger. The couple confirmed that they were engaged, but they did not talk about their wedding plans as they’d like to keep it private.

They’ve been engaged for almost four years now, and they already have a baby together. In 2017, they welcomed their son – Jack Oscar Stathman.

The couple likes to spend time off-screen and away from the media. They aren’t much active on social media either. They rarely publish photos of each other, except on special occasions. It’s just inspiring how the famous couple manages to keep their relationship so private. The duration of their romance speaks for itself.

Epic Car Crashes in ‘Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw’

The Fast & Furious spinoff ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ is soon to be released, and we are all looking forward to its release date. However, if you don’t know what to expect from the latest installment of the Fast & Furious franchise, there is one thing for certain you can expect epic car chases.

The promotional campaign for the 2019 American action film is going strong, and there have been some very action-packed trailers. These trailers and clips have shown some insights into the movie. Hence, we decided to take a closer look at some of the crazy car chases we’ve seen in the clips. The clips have been a great teaser and have given some extended promo of the car chase sequences.

The first clip features McLaren 720S which rushes through the narrow London streets. The two-seat supercar accommodated Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, and Vanessa Kirby in it. The scene is enhanced by a futuristic motorcycle ridden by Brixton Lore, the villain played by Idris Elba. The action seems very intense and vigorous, but the scene doesn’t go without a comic part as Hobbs and Shaw can be seen arguing with each other.
Moreover, in the stunt Shaw can be seen driving the McLaren 720S under two semi-trucks. This scene is a homage to a similar stunt in the first film of the Fast & Furious franchise. Then, Brixton follows and climbs off the moving motorcycle which pulls him under the two trucks.

Furthermore, there is a second clip which again features Brixton chasing Hobbs and Shaw. However, in this scene, Shaw is driving a modified buggy while Hobbs is behind the wheel of a custom flatbed truck. Moreover, there has been a recent trailer which featured a scene of modified hot rods chased by a rocket-firing helicopter.

These trailers and clips show that the new Fast & Furious movie will come with plenty of action and epic car chases. The initial release of the ‘Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw’ is on August 2. The movie is directed by David Leitch, who is also behind Deadpool 2. The producers include Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Chris Morgan, and Hiram Garcia.

Johnson stated that Samoan culture didn’t have the opportunity to reach billion people around the globe, that it has with this movie. He stated that he is ecstatic to see something like that happening and that he is involved in this project. He will reprise the role of policeman Luke Hobbs, and Jason Statham will reprise his role of Deckard Shaw.

Today, Jason Statham lives in Los Angeles and he was very happy to return to the United Kingdom, to be a part of a large, blockbuster movie. He said that he loved working in the UK after a really large amount of time. The movie was filmed just outside the Leadenhall`s and Lloyd`s buildings. His character, Deckard Shaw is a typical representative of the people from the United Kingdom.

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson in ‘Songland’ episode inspired by Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw

If you didn’t watch any of the previous 6 episodes of Songland songwriting competitions, it’s about a new NBC’s show that is trying to promote talented songwriters and it’s launched on May 28 of this year. Several competitors had the opportunity to show their talent in songwriting and their songs were selected and recorded by well-known musicians and artists.

For example, John Legend, who was a guest judge on the first show, chose “We Need Love”, a song written by Tebby Burrows and song hit the 10th place on the iTunes chart.

In addition to this song, Black Eyed Peas (will.i.am) selected “Be Nice” by Adam Friedman, Jonas Brothers chose “Greenlight” by Able Heart, while Darius Coleman’s song “Better Luck Next Time” was selected by Kelsey Ballerini. These were the winners of the previous episodes.

But in the latest episode of the show, the guest judge was Aloe Blacc, and the song written by the winner of the episode would be selected and featured in the upcoming Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw movie. In order to provide support to all contestants, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was surprised when FaceTime wanted them luck and said:

“Our music for Hobbs & Shaw is our soul, and it’s a lifeline of our movie. Thank you so much for sharing your passion. Go out there and have fun. And by the way, the world does not know you – but they’re about to! ”

In addition to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, the leading roles in the new movie are played by Jason Statham and Idris Elba.

Given that David Leitch (director of Hobbs & Shaw) and Aloe Blacc are looking for a suitable song that would be featured in the new sequel of the popular franchise, this episode was a great chance for songwriters to show their best and be selected. It looks like this episode was really lucky for them and they chose a song written by Kyle Williams. The name of the new Blacc’s anthem is “Getting Started”.

Although the song by Kyle Williams was chosen, it didn’t look like “Getting Started” is going to be a winner. Blacc and Leitch had really positive comments for the song “Chosen” by Afika before. Ester Dean (also a judge in the ‘Songland’ show) had a positive comment on Afika’s song, as well. However, it seems that Leitch and Blacc felt that “Getting Started” fits better for the upcoming blockbuster.

The filming of the movie Fast and Furious 9 has begun, and we can’t wait for it to be finished.

Considering the posts that the cast and director posted on social media everyone is having so much fun. And they are all having fun without their former co-cast member Dwayne Johnson.

There was a bit of a drama surrounding The Rock and his involvement in this franchise. A couple of years ago Dwayne was accused by Tyrese Gibson that he is ruining the whole series, and all because he was trying to make the movie all about himself.

And the fans of this franchise know that the movies are all about Paul Walker, Vin Diesel and Tyrese Gibson himself. Everything went so wrong that Dwayne and Vin Diesel refused to film any scenes together. But now that drama is finished, and Dwayne Johnson is no longer a cast member of the Fast and Furious.

He did make his own spin-off of the Fast and Furious franchise with his fellow colleague Jason Statham, called Hobbs and Shaw. You’ll need to wait for the movie to come out this summer to see if it is good enough like the Fast and Furious franchise.

But when it comes to Fast and Furious 9 there has been a lot of post on social media posted by the film crew. Vin Diesel posted a video he filmed with his co-star Michelle Rodriguez where they celebrated the first day of filming.

Justin Lin tweeted that it feels like home to be back filming. And Tyrese Gibson also posted on his Instagram profile that he is proud to work with 2 powerful women, and one of them is his managed Isabella Castro.

So it seems that everything is going well and that everyone is doing well and that they are enjoying filming the new movie. And it seems like they are not missing Dwayne.

Now we just have to wait for the filming to end and for the movie to hit the theatres.
