Sure, we can all read "Oyelowo" but can we say it?
Brad Pitt had a tough time at first, but the actor came up with a very catchy way to remember the pronunciation: singing!
In case you missed it, at the Palm Springs International Film Festival over the weekend, Angelina Jolie's husband presented Selma's David Oyelowo with the Breakthrough Performance award, and he saig his name correctly.
And it's all thanks to this brilliant mnemonic device! Ch-ch-check it out (below) and NEVER say Mr. Oyelowo's name wrong again!
