Jimmy Kimmel will be the host of this year’s Academy Awards and during an interview with Hollywood Reporter, issued a warning for everyone at the ceremony, well everyone except for The Rock.
“If somebody comes up on the stage and slaps me? Well, I size them up, and, if I’m bigger than they are, I beat the s-t out of them on television. And if it’s the Rock, I run. Well, whatever I say about it, it’s going to have to be great, right? Because so much has been said and there’s so much focus on it. I obviously don’t want to make the whole monologue about that, but it would be ridiculous not to mention it.”
