Mark Wahlberg Claims the NFL and Various Team Owners Have Complained About HBO's Ballers

Originally posted 07/18/2016 01:05PM

Ballers is largely considered a hit among football fans – but according to executive producer Mark Wahlberg, the NFL itself wasn't too happy about the show.

Calling into ESPN's Mike & Mike on Friday, Wahlberg opened up about complaints he first received about the HBO series, saying he fielded calls from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell as well as team owners.

"The first season of the show, the only calls I was getting were from guys like Roger Goodell saying, 'You can't do this,' and various owners in the league," said Wahlberg, 45. "What we're saying is, you know, it's actually a good thing for the league and for the players, because if we get the word out there with the crazy stuff and the financial side of it, we can hopefully get these guys to realize that they've got to be more careful with what they do with their money."

Terminally Ill Comedian Quincy Jones Opens Up About Cancer Battle and HBO Special: 'I Can't See Myself Withering Away'

Originally posted 06/01/2016 09:50AM

It's been just over two months since Ellen DeGeneres helped terminally-ill aspiring comedian Quincy Jones land an HBO special – and now, he's just one day away from having his story hit the small screen.

In anticipation of Thursday's Quincy Jones: Burning the Light premiere, Jones, 32, opened up to Entertainment Weekly about his cancer battle, his comedy special and his perspective on life after being diagnosed with stage-4 mesothelioma cancer last year and was told that he has only a year to live.

Of his diagnosis, Jones explained he went through months of testing before his official diagnosis.

"I went in at the end of 2014. My stomach is filled up with ascites, which is fluid in the body," he said. "It's supposed to be circulating to organs but it was backed up in my belly and we didn't know why. After about six or seven months of testing, that's when we came up with the diagnosis that I had cancer. A few months later, they gave me the prognosis of a year."

Sophie Turner on Enduring 'Hard Years' as Her Body Transformed in the Public Eye – and the 'Panic Attack' She Had About the End of Game of Thrones

Originally posted 05/26/2016 01:50PM

Growing up playing one of the main characters on a hugely popular TV show with a cult following can't be easy – and Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner isn't afraid to admit that.

The actress, now 20, says in InStyle UK's July cover story that growing up in the public eye while playing Sansa Stark on the hit HBO series was "probably the thing I've struggled with the most."

"At first, it was the character: people hating on her because she was a 13-year-old girl, and she should have a smart head on her shoulders and make good decisions. But, at the end of the day – blinded by love – she didn't," Turner says.
