How to use kick in a sentence?
…Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners. And if we kick them all out you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts.
I get the biggest kick out of people who claim to be related to the Queen and Royal Family. The truth of the matter is most are truly related, they're just cousins 15 times removed! They're more likely to blood kin to Lady Mary Crawley! (Referencing the fictional story "Downton Abbey")
For women in Hollywood, when they’re coupling, everything is about the brand. Everything is about latching on to a rising star, so you can kick your heels up. That’s never been my story, ever, i make sure to let people know all of the hard work that’s gone into my career. I want people to know the work that it took to get through UCLA, that I had student loans and worked. I was eating Top Ramen and lived well below my means. Now that it’s time to get married to a man who happens to play basketball and has done well for himself, I want to make it clear that I have in no way hitched my wagon to his star. I have my own wagon and star.
I’m just tired. I can’t seem to get my life kick-started.
The group needs to kick-start performance, reduce its cost base and bureaucracy ... and speed up decision making.
