Fly Interview: Charlie Hunnam & Djimon Hounsou Talks ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’ with SFPL

[ione_embed src=https://www.youtube.com/embed/VYcK5c8aXF8 service=youtube width=854 height=480 type=iframe]

SFPL‘s Co-Creator & Editor, Gabriel Williams recently sat down with the stars of King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Charlie Hunnam and Djimon Hounsou to talk about the action-packed film hitting theaters on Friday, May 12.

Directed by Guy Ritchie, who brings his dynamic style to the epic fantasy action adventure — Charlie and Djimon both tapped into their experience and explained special moments while filming and more. Also, the storyline itself tells a compelling overall story about dealing with life obstacles, facing fears, dealing with the death of loved ones, growing up without a family, hardship, and so much more.

Djimon speaks on the challenges that were displayed in the film:

The relatable fact about this story is that we can all identify with a kid that was raised in a brothel, bunch of women, and didn’t have a father, didn’t have a mother — actually, halfway on the streets, and we now follow his life experience all the way to the throne.

Djimon also gave important gems about staying healthy and fit.

Charlie spoke on the physical process of the film:

I wanted to be very very lean. It was a combination watching a diet and keeping a really clean diet. I also wanted to be fast on my feet. When you lift a lot of weights you get swollen and slow. I think the key is body weight, i.e calisthenics.

Check out the full interview above.

**Premiere** Fly Acoustics: Singer Tweet Talks New Album ‘Charlene’, 8-Year Hiatus, Performs Single “Won’t Hurt Me” & more

tweet-fly-acoustics

After a very long music hiatus, our favorite songbird is back and ready to deliver!

Singer/Songwriter Tweet, stopped by Stuff Fly People Like‘s premiere of Fly Acoustics, a music series where artists get personal, share past & present experiences, all while presenting new music, and delivering a LIVE acoustic performance to media conglomerates and fans on-site.

While kicking the segment off, Tweet spoke on why she took time off:

I have been preparing myself for this moment, just getting myself together spiritually after the second album didn’t go too well — I decided to take a break and kinda get my life spiritually together. So, in that I rededicated myself to Christ — so he would orchestrate everything that’s happening now. And, I also signed to a couple of labels, and it just didn’t work out.

Since her last 2005 album, It’s Me Again, Tweet followed up with a new EP 8-years later entitled Simply Tweet.

Tweet’s new forthcoming album Charlene (Jan. 2016) gives us a journey through her written diary, sharing the up and downs of life, and what she was going through within the hiatus.

tweet-fly-acoustics

Tweet also talks about wanting to get back to “real soul music,” that makes you think, that speaks of liberation for women, and just simply that “good feeling.” She even speaks of perhaps doing a full Gospel album one day, per request from her aunt, Juanita before she passed away.

Check out the FULL visual of our very own, ‘Fly Acoustics’ below with a special performance from Tweet of new single “Won’t Hurt Me”:

Tweet’s album ‘Charlene’ drops on January 22, 2016, just a day after her birthday.
