'L&O: SVU' makes Ice-T lose his cool
It takes a lot to rattle tough guy Ice-T, but even he gets shaken up by the outrageous, ripped-from-the-headlines plots on his show, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
I just kind of look at the s--- and go, OK. What do I say? he said of the long-running police drama that focuses on sex crimes. But its real. Thats what makes it scary.
The rapper-turned-actor, whom we recently caught up with at Chelsea club Cain Luxe, predicts the next news story to make it to SVU will be U.S. Airways pilot Chesley Sully Sullenbergs landing on the Hudson River in January.
You didnt know that while that plane was crashing, somebody be getting [attacked], the 51-year-old said.
The fashion cops v. a TV cop
Playing a cop on TV doesnt give Ice-T an automatic pass with the fashion police, but he said men have it easier anyway when it comes to red carpet critiques.
I could show up at the motherf------ Oscars in a T-shirt and the magazines would go, Wow, innovative, he said. They dont destroy men in the magazines."But his blonde bombshell of a wife Coco, 29 who is known for wearing body-hugging dresses and extremely low-cut tops told us the red carpet fairies aren't always on her side.
"They never like to put the good pictures online," she lamented. "They want the outrageous outfits. They want the wild Coco."
But her hubby's motto? Ignore 'em.
"As long as your comfortable, f--- what everybody else says," he said.
Coco's favorite thing to shop for is shoes; she owns hundreds of pairs.
"My shoe size doesn't get bigger, so I've been collecting since I was 15 years old. I consider myself like a baseball collector. They'll spend $20,000 on one card, so I'll spend $600 on one shoe," said Coco, whose favorite brands are Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo and Giuseppe Zanotti.
Ice-T doesn't pay much attention to what he wears, and prefers buying cars (he only has two right now because he only has two parking spots).
"I'm not a designer kind of cat," he said.
