Cuba Gooding, Jr. addicted to reality TV

Actor Cuba Gooding, Jr. has become hooked on reality TV shows after begrudgingly watching them with his wife.

The Jerry Maguire star's partner Sara is a fan of fly-on-the-wall programmes, and Gooding, Jr. has slowly come around to them and is now more of an ardent viewer than his wife.

He tells TV host Alan Carr, "Didn't you guys (Brits) start the reality programming that invaded the States... All these housewives, all these shows... driving me (crazy).

"My wife watches all of them... we gonna watch this s**t. And you know what sucks, is after like two or three episodes I'm like, 'Come on honey, the show's starting.' It's brutal!"
