Jameela Jamil Slams Tabloid Clickbait About MCU
Jameela Jamil is unhappy that a tabloid is misinterpreting her words!
After garnering public attention for her role in NBC’s existential series “The Good Place,” the actress went on to star in other larger-than-life Hollywood projects. One such project was portraying the villainous Titania in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) series, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law. Since then, Jamil has set his sights on roles in the “Star Wars” franchise, a dream that a news agency recently misrepresented in its headline.
Jameela Jamil calls a magazine after her interview was faked
For anyone who has followed Jamil’s career since he started out as a TV presenter, it will be no news that he is a pop culture fan. In fact, the actress has incredibly voiced her keen interest in joining the ‘Star Wars’ franchise. He doubled down on the need to be in the project when he sat down for an interview with SFX Magazine. In the words of the 36-year-old:
“I’ve done DC, I’ve done the MCU, I’ve just joined Star Trek, so it seems only natural that they at least allow Star Wars hospitality. I used to refer to it as my nerd EGO (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony) – it would be my ultimate dream come true and fulfill all my 12 year old fantasies. I’d take literally anything, but I think he’s a villain…”
Unfortunately, when the publisher published the interview, it came with a title that Jamil found offensive. The ‘Star Trek’ singing actress shared a snapshot of the title claiming she was ‘going to jump ship’ after ‘She-Hulk’ was added to Disney+ on her Instagram story..
Prior to this, Jamil posted the same screenshot on his Instagram fed by subtitle, “WOWWWW The headline vs. the quote. I said this during the Star Trek press tour, in no way related to the success of any previous project, just my love for certain sci-fi worlds.”
According to him, the MCU series was “a success” and if someone “had to lie like that to prove otherwise” then they lost the “battle”. The “DC League of Super-Pets” star definitively wrote:
“We hope these people stretch before attempting the mental gymnastics required to create such nonsense.”
Within hours, her comments section was filled with statements of support from her fans and fellow celebrities. Actress Sophia Bush exclaimed: “This is just crazy!!!” while singer Kechi Okwuchi commented, “Bruh. They’ve found a way to continue (ironically) biased digging into She Hulk while presenting her words out of context knowing most people don’t read the previous titles. Amazing 🤦🏽♀️.” (Sic)
Actress Natalia Cordova-Buckley wrote: “The M for media actually stands for Manipulate Masses,” while one fan added: “Journalism is mostly dead, stuff like this is the equivalent of trashy magazines at grocery store checkouts.”
Another fan claimed that the store was “obviously so jealous and triggered by a strong, successful woman of color that the only way to negate you is with this clickbait headline.”
A third person called it “weird journalism,” and a fourth agreed that while the article was terrible, Jamil and his fan base should focus on making his “Star Wars” dream come true.
“You’d better be in Star Wars and they’d better not try to hide it behind any heavy prosthetics or alien make-up. It’s just too bad, beautiful YOU,” a fifth fan encouraged the former BBC Radio 1 presenter.
‘The Good Place’ star can’t deal with ‘Nepo babies’ and their denials
The explosion Last month, it was reported that Jamil had joined the controversial ‘nepo babies’ topic following its resurgence through a New York Magazine cover story highlighting today’s artists – in film and music – who have achieved recognition through the fame, connections and wealth of their parents . The host of “The Misery Index” shared his opinion with his 3.7 followers:
“Because the back-and-forth is getting boring… yes, the moniker can be a little wrinkly and patronizing on purpose. And it’s a bit of a bummer because you have your own human trials and struggles.”
After encouraging the “nepo babies” to recognize their privilege in terms of hard work, talent and hard work. Jamil warned: “That doesn’t make you untalented.” It makes you extremely lucky and you just have to acknowledge it and move on.”
Although she considered herself more privileged than a disabled actor, the actress admitted that she was “less privileged” than nepo dolls.
