American Auto

Tuesdays on NBC (8:30-9 p.m. ET); Season Premiere: Jan. 24


From the creator of “Superstore” comes a new workplace comedy that takes the wheels off the automobile industry. Set in Detroit, the corporate executives of Payne Motors are at a crossroads: adapt to the changing times or be sent to the junkyard. Shaking things up is the new CEO, whose leadership, experience and savvy is only slightly offset by her complete lack of knowledge about cars. Luckily, her team has some of the best minds in the business – when they aren’t fighting or trying to outwit each other. From the corporate office to the factory floor, the crew of Payne Motors is driving home the laughs.

The cast includes Ana Gasteyer, Harriet Dyer, Jon Barinholtz, Humphrey Ker, Michael B. Washington, Tye White and X Mayo.

Justin Spitzer (“Superstore”) will write and executive produce. Jeff Blitz will direct and executive produce the pilot episode. Aaron Kaplan and Dana Honor will executive produce.

“American Auto” is produced by Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group, in association with Spitzer Holding Company, Kapital Entertainment.

Emily Ratajkowski isn’t the only celebrity name you’ve been saying wrong

Model Emily Ratajkowski has revealed that we’ve all been mispronouncing her name wrong all this time. 

In a recent TikTok video, the 31-year-old has been revealed the how to correctly pronounce her surname the Polish way – “Rah-tah-kov-skee”.

In light of this news, the team at Preply have done some digging and compiled a list of the celebrity names that you have been mispronouncing all this time.

It’s time to set the record straight…

  1. Lindsay Lohan (Lindsay Lo-Wen)

In her TikTok debut, Lindsay Lohan got fans questioning everything when she revealed that people have been pronouncing her surname wrong.

Introducing herself on the platform, Lindsay corrected fans by saying her last name is actually pronounced ‘Lo-wen’ instead of ‘Lo-han’. Fans were quick to react, commenting “Wait. Lindsay “LOWEN”?!?! I’ve been saying it wrong my whole life?!?”

  1. Jake Gyllenhall (Jake Yee-Len-Hey-Lo)

A celebrity name that needs to be put to justice. It seems that the universal pronunciation for Jake’s last name is ‘Jill-en-hall’ – but the world is wrong!

Speaking to TV host Conan O’Brien, the 41-year-old actor revealed that his Swedish last name should be pronounced ‘Yen-lee-hey-lo’ – what a tongue-twister!

  1. Zendaya (Zen-Day-Yuh)

Having a net worth of $15 million, Zendaya is certainly doing well for herself – which makes it all the more important for people to pronounce the star’s name correctly.

In a YouTube video, the Euphoria actress expressed that her name is commonly mispronounced as ‘Zen-dye-uh’, when the correct pronunciation is ‘Zen-day-yuh’.

  1. Timothée Chalamet (Timo-Tay Shala-May)

The Call By Your Name star really wants fans to call him by his actual name.

Speaking in an interview with Frank Ocean, the 26-year-old heartthrob revealed that the real pronunciation of his name is ‘Timo-tay Shala-may’. He however said: “I can’t ask people to call me that; it just seems really pretentious” – but the king has spoken!

4. Amanda Seyfried (Amanda Sigh-Frid)

Mamma Mia! The world has been saying Amanda Seyfried’s name wrong all this time…

In an interview with Hollywood Streams, the 36-year-old actress said the worst pronunciation of her last name would be ‘Say-fried’ or ‘Sig-freed’, rather the correct pronunciation is actually ‘Sigh-frid.”

  1. Ariana Grande (Ariana Gran-dee)

Say what?! Contrary to how the star’s name is pronounced in the media, Ari shocked fans by revealing the actual pronunciation of her last name is ‘Grand-dee’, not ‘Gradhn-day’.

Talking to Beats 1’s Ebro Darden, the star said she pronounced her last name as ‘gran-dee’ when she was growing up. As well as this, she said the pronunciation has always been ‘gran-dee’ in the Grande family.

  1. Charlize Theron (Charlize There-in)

It appears that the ‘o’ is very misleading in Charlize Theron’s name…

During a segment on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the Atomic Blonde star revealed that her surname is actually pronounced ‘There-in’. Safe to say we didn’t see that one coming!

  1. Chrissy Teigen (Chrissy Tie-Ghen)

Credit: @chrissyteigen

Star Chrissy Teigen said that her Norwegian last name is actually pronounced ‘Tie-ghen’ rather than ‘Tee-ghen’.

She said that even though she always introduces herself as ‘Tee-ghen’, the proper pronunciation is ‘Tie-ghen’, as this is how she was taught how to pronounce her name as she was growing up.
