Tracy Morgan Paying A Bartender To Keep An Eye On His $2M Bugatti Is The Definition Of BDE

He's not taking any chances.

This is something comedian Tracy Morgan can personally attest to, having legitimately paid a bartender to watch his $2M Bugatti while he ate at Carmine’s restaurant in New York this week.

A source told Page Six that Morgan “paid one of the restaurant’s bartenders who just came off his shift to watch his Bugatti while he and a friend dined.”

While Morgan tucked into “Carmine’s signature chicken, veal parmigiana and fried calamari,” the bartender kept his eye on the luxury vehicle parked out front.

It’s not surprising Morgan is going to great lengths to protect his property. In June, just hours after he purchased the sportscar, another driver travelling into a Honda CR-V smashed into it.

“He said he got it literally an hour ago and he paid $2 million for it,” a source said at the time. “He just bought it, dude, and it’s pretty scraped up.”

In fact, Tracy Morgan hasn’t had much luck with cars at all. In 2014, the comedian was involved in a six-vehicle crash in New Jersey while travelling in a Mercedes Sprinter minibus. The vehicle was heading north when it was struck from behind by a Walmart trailer, causing a chain reaction of subsequent collisions. 

Fans were devastated to hear that the crash had killed 62-year-old comedian James McNair, and left Morgan with severe injuries including a broken leg, nose, and several broken ribs. 

Morgan sued Walmart for negligence, resulting in the driver accepting a plea deal with no jail time. In a 2015 interview Morgan revealed he had no memory of the crash and said “I have my good days and my bad days, where I forget things.” The same year, the comedian made a surprise appearance at the Emmy Awards where he was greeted with a standing ovation.

After all of that, Tracy Morgan deserves to sit back, relax and let someone else watch his car for him. 

It's Official: Charlize Theron Is The Only Living Creature Who Can Pull Off A Bowl Cut

Bowled over, to say the least.

Charlize Theron deserves an award. Not only is she an incredibly talented actress with a career spanning over 20 years, but she’s drop dead gorgeous enough to pull off a hairstyle you haven’t seen since your mum blindly trusted you with a pair of scissors at age five.

Yes, that’s right. Theron has stepped out sporting a bowl cut, and to be honest, she’s never looked better.

The 44-year-old actor took to Instagram to debut her new look – a cropped, highlighted bowl-shaped cut complete with an epic chunky fringe. Judging by the caption, Theron’s new do is for her upcoming role in Fast & Furious 9 as cyberterrorist Cipher. 

It’s unclear whether the bowl cut is a wig, or Theron’s actual hair, but either way, it’s a far cry from Cipher’s long blonde dreadlocks in 2017’s The Fate of the Furious.

But are we really that surprised that Theron nailed a haircut that literally no one else could ever pull off? Over the course of her career, she’s become well-versed in the art of transforming her appearance for movie roles.

In the 2003 drama Monster, Theron portrayed serial killer Aileen Wuornos, a former prostitute who was executed in 2002 for killing six men in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s. In preparation for the role, Theron gained 13 kilos, overplucked her eyebrows, sported greasy hair and prosthetic teeth – leaving her virtually unrecognisable.

Theron’s gruelling physical transformation proved well worth it when she was awarded an Academy Award, Screen Actors Guild Award and a Golden Globe for her performance which was praised by critics as “one of the greatest in the history of the cinema.”

The actress is also set to star in the upcoming blockbuster Bombshell as news anchor Megyn Kelly alongside Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie. In the trailer for the film, Theron is a spitting image of Kelly thanks to the art of makeup and prosthetics. 

Shoutout to Charlize Theron for being a graceful chameleon in everything she does. And for being the only living creature who can pull off a bowl cut.

This Pilot Pulled Off An Emergency Landing On His First Lesson, What Have You Done Today?

Talk about a rough day.

If you think you’ve had a particularly stressful, or productive day, chances are you’ve got nothing on this novice pilot, who managed to pull off an emergency plane landing during his first lesson.

An audio recording has surfaced of student pilot Max Sylvester calling air traffic control for advice on how to safely land a two-seater aircraft after his instructor collapsed mid-flight.

“He’s leaning over my shoulder. I’m trying to keep him up but he keeps falling down,” Sylvester is heard telling the controller during the call.

“Do you know how to operate the airplane?” air traffic control asks. “This is my first lesson,” he responds.

“Have you landed any aircraft before?” he asks. “No, I haven’t” Sylvester responds. 

Talk about a stressful day on the job.

The operator in air traffic control manages to talk Sylvester through the steps, and says, “You’re doing a really great job. I know this is really stressful. But you’re going to do an amazing job and we’re going to help you get down to the ground, OK?”

After nearly an hour, Sylvester somehow managed to land the plane safely at Perth’s Jandakot Airport and now his instructor is in a stable condition in hospital.

Speaking to ABC News, owner and operator of Air Australia International Chuck McElwee said the emergency plane landing “could have gone way, way bad.”

“But everything worked out right, and it worked right, mostly because of the cooperation of the tower, the fact that he was a student – that he was dedicated and he knew what he was doing and he pulled it off – and that my flight instructor went up to the tower and they all worked together.”

Phew. Credit: Giphy

Props to Sylvester and the controller for keeping their cool during this seriously stressful situation. Lord knows if it were me, there would have been far more screaming.
