Odds & Ends: Cameron Diaz Is a Foul-Mouthed Hannigan & More

first_img View Comments Cameron Diaz Owes Quvenzhane Wallis $$$ …Or vice versa? When the new Miss Hannigan stopped by Late Night earlier this week, she seemed a little too into yelling at kids…and cursing. “They are in an adult situation,” she told Seth Meyers of the youngins playing the foster kids. “If you don’t like how adults talk, don’t be in an adult situation. That’s how I do.” Apparently, she also tried a really backwards version of the swear jar, in which those who don’t drop f-bombs have to put in money. So remember, kids: You’re never fully dressed without a f*cking smile.

New deal for Odemwingie

first_img The Nigeria international will remain at the Britannia Stadium until the end of the 2015-16 campaign but there is the option of a further 12 months. Odemwingie, who joined the Potters in January 2014, recovered from a serious knee injury which sidelined him for eight months to return to action in April. Stoke striker Peter Odemwingie has been rewarded with a new one-year contract extension. “We’re delighted to that Peter has extended his stay with us at the club until the summer of 2016,” said chief executive Tony Scholes. “He suffered an unfortunate injury last season after making a big impression immediately after joining the club. “Peter has worked incredibly hard to battle back from this to regain full fitness. “He’s a popular figure not just in the dressing room but with club staff and supporters so we are thrilled to keep him on board this season.” Stoke have also appointed John Coates, son of chairman Peter, as vice-chairman because Keith Humphreys is stepping down from his role on the board of directors. “John and I have run the club together since bet365 purchased the club in 2006 and his appointment as vice-chairman serves to formalise his involvement,” said Peter. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
