Fans of O'Shea Jackson, better known by his stage name Ice Cube, know well that the actor and rapper has a pretty intense demeanor on camera.
He is so good at delivering angry lines in his movies that sometimes you’d think that’s how he is in his real life too.
Keeping this in mind, host Jimmy Kimmel thought it would be fun if he gave his guest some really adorable lines – quite the opposite of what Ice Cube is used to saying – to act out in his own inimitable way.
The first line Kimmel gave him was, “Lavender body-wash body wash makes my pores tingle.”
And then, “There’s nothing better on a gloomy day than a good book, a warm blanket and creamy pumpkin bisque.”
