News & Blog

Being able to act alongside the veteran actor Will Smith is something to be very proud of. Anyhoo, we are updating this post not only to note that the actor has made it on Hollywood Fuck Marry Kill but also to bring you these shirtless pics of the guy for the thirsty hos among us. We grabbed these images from his Insta which you might want to follow @menamassoud.

From 2008 to 2009, she appeared in the Disney Channel UK series Life Bites for her main role as Megan. Naomi first appeared in the 2013 short film Modern/Love for her role as Harper. Furthermore, Mena was born to Egyptian Coptic Christian parents. As per education, Mena graduated from the Ryerson University.

Her parents are both pastors and Scott said playing piano and leading worship at their church helped shape her as an independent music artist. He has not dropped any hints of having a girlfriend or wife so far, either in his interviews or social media accounts. Massoud was born on September 17, 1991, in Cairo, Egypt, to Egyptian Coptic Orthodox Christian parents. Scott is married to athlete Jordan Spence, who is a defender for Ipswich Town, and has been since 2014 (the pair dated for four years prior to their wedding). As ELLE noted, the two originally met at the Aladdin star’s parents’ church, which is the Bridge Church, Woodford in Redbridge, United Kingdom.

Facts About Mena Massoud From Aladdin

The lack of specificity and care that went into the story is also the reason it doesn’t matter who the lead of this movie is, as long as he’s vaguely brown and maybe Muslim. Outside of acting, Massoud is also the founder of Evolving Vegan a company dedicated to getting people to practice plant-based living. Aladdin is a shining example of the limits of Disney’s attempts to render its greatest animated classics into live action. Aladdin star Mena Massoud has praised the film’s diversity which see’s the live-action remake use a mostly non-white cast, which is still unusual for a Hollywood blockbuster. Aladdin stars Will Smith, Naomi Scott, Mena Massoud and Marwan Kenzari.

Unfortunately, the details about his parents are not available on any source. As of 2020, he is 29 years old and belongs to the horoscope, Virgo. Playing Aladdin is a big breakthrough for Massoud, and the actor expressed his excitement on Twitter, saying he was grateful and honored to play the character. Critics said that Jasmine should be played by a Middle Eastern actress. It’s the casting of Scott as Jasmine that has caused the most controversy online.

He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c’mon, the guy’s look just screams Bruce Wayne. In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Three years have quickly sped by and we’re officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and now everyone’s attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be.

Outside this harrowing story, Naomi Scott has been in a committed relationship for quite some time now. Her mother, Usha, is of Gujarati Indian descent, while her father Christopher, is of English descent. In June 2014, she married footballer Jordan Spence after four years of dating and originally meeting at her parents’ church. While Scott’s voice is lovely and Jasmine gets her own new song here, a huge change in the story feels like a forced moment of female empowerment more than one that is truly earned. Or perhaps that’s where the limitations of CGI come in with a film as magical as “Aladdin.” There are things that simply don’t translate onto film as easily as they can be animated. You’ll also want to listen closely to the lyrics of “Friend Like Me” at the film’s end.

As a result, the whole endeavor feels unfinished and unresolved. In an interview with a daily portal, actor Will Smith who played the role of Aladdin’s genie advised Guy Ritchie to adopt the Bollywood aesthetic for the movie. He said he was trying to bring out his best Bollywood version in the movie. For a sequence with Prince Ali, he kept insisting to Ritchie that he had to “go full Bollywood” with “Bollywood flavour”. Hollywood actor, Naomi Scott is popular for playing the role of princess Jasmine Disney’s Aladdin. During a promotional interview with a leading daily for the movie in 2019, she recalled how she was mistaken for the Bollywood beauty Deepika Padukone on the sets of the movie.

However, things take a wild turn when he comes across New York-based hairstylist Izzy, leading to some romantic adventures. Since there had been no news about his relationships and hookups, few people talked about his homosexuality. Besides that, there had been some reports of him dating Carly Sellen which was left unverified. He will have a girlfriend in Aladdin, Jasmine (played by Naomi Scott), but does Mena have a girlfriend in real life? We do not know at this point but we will update this post in the future when we find out more about the up-and-coming actor’s relationship status.

Mena Massoud: biography

The actress is also set to star in the upcoming Charlie’s Angels reboot alongside Kristen Stewart and Ella Balinska. Scott, 26, had a role in the Fox sci-fi drama Terra Nova as the daughter of the show’s stars, but her breakthrough role came in 2017, when she appeared as Kimberly the Pink Ranger in Power Rangers. The actor told Entertainment Weekly in December that he booked the role of Aladdin on a Wednesday, and started work on a Friday. Massoud, 27, got his start on a pair of Canadian dramas, as the actor was born in Cairo, Egypt, but moved to Canada when he was 3 years old.

That said, he’s now spending most of his time in either Toronto, New York City, or Los Angeles. And surely, he’ll be working more now that he’s made it big with Disney. Regarding his love life, he is not dating anyone, in other words, he is single at the moment.

Other supporting characters were played by Nassim Pedro, Billy Magnussen, Navid Negahban, Numan Acar and more. He depicted the role of Jared Malik in the show and captivated the audience with his talent. Then he appeared in several movies and TV shows like Let’s Rap, Saving Hope, Ordinary Days, and Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan. One of his highly anticipat series was Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan where Mena starre as Tarek Kassar. Besides, his recent film Aladdin premiered on 8 May 2019 in Grand Rex, Paris.

It doesn’t matter if they’re released to a great clamor and then forgotten by the next weekend, or released with barely a whisper. And it really doesn’t matter if any of them are actually good. Much like Michael Scott, no matter what happens, Disney is just going to keep making these things and pumping them out into theaters and onto Disney Plus.

Now, riding on the Disney film’s success, he is set to be part of TV shows, namely Reprisal, Run This Town and Jack Ryan. Massoud must have impressed the hell out of the casting directors, because he was chosen out of a group of over 2,000 actors, across multiple countries. Lucky for him, they didn’t have to resort to Hollywood tricks to make him taller in Aladdin. His costar, Naomi Scott, who plays the role of Princess Jasmine, is petite herself. Mena Massoud, who starred in 2019’s live-action Aladdin, will be introduced to the guys of Station 126 as Salim, a childhood friend (and secret fiancé via a childhood arrangement) of Marjan (Natacha Karam). The first responder will be forced to confront her past when Salim comes into town to catch up on lost time and probably address his and Marjan’s romantic future.
