Ralph Macchio tells Men's Health magazine that there is a difference between the fight scenes in the Karate Kid movies and Cobra Kai. ''There's a few distinct differences. Firstly, it hurts a lot more now. I move slower, I have to stretch a lot longer. And all the parts feel a lot more connected than they used to; I can throw an outside crescent kick, and all of a sudden I’ll feel something in my neck. So you really have to do a lot of injury prevention work. It's certainly much tougher than when I was younger.''

Rebel Wilson tells the Straight-Talking podcast that she was once kidnapped at gunpoint in Africa.''There was one time in Africa where I got kidnapped. It was in rural Mozambique. I was petrified. We were on this cattle truck and these men came on another truck with a lot of guns. They pulled up beside us with the big guns and they were like, 'Yeah, you've got to get off your truck'. I felt like I was very good in the crisis. I was like a team leader. They sat us down, and I said, 'Everybody link arms,' because I was petrified in the night that they might want to take one of the girls or something. I think maybe those guys, maybe, used us to smuggle illegal things in the bottom of the truck.''
Rebel Wilson tells the Straight-Talking podcast that she once spent a year going on dates with anyone who asked her out.
