“The ladies I like, they ain’t gonna be that impressed by an Oscar and if they are, they ain’t gonna show it,” he told us.
“I got to impress my ladies with some real good conversation and good things, good loving and taking them to do something fresh and new.” Common says that being an Oscar winner got him razzed a bit on set of the third “Barbershop” film, which is a long shot to contend for an Academy Award. ’ And I felt like one of the guys, but they were just joking,” he laughed before confessing, “It does feel good to have an Oscar.” Common says he still goes to barbershops from time to time, but his pal Julian, who works at Legends in Brooklyn, makes house calls to shave his head.
After divorce with her husband in 2013, she started dating Rapper Common in 2016.
Their relationship became official after both of them were out in a romantic dinner in a Beverly Hills restaurent while onlookers looked on.
Dern won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Miniseries or Television Film for the 1992 film Afterburn, and guest starred in the 1997 "Puppy Episode" of the sitcom Ellen.

The Bad Santa actor called off their engagement and went on to marry Jolie, 41, just months later.
“I’m a single guy,” the rapper told us at a private screening for HBO’s “Barbershop: The Next Cut” in Midtown. Dern and Common (aka Lonnie Rashid Lynn Jr.) reportedly met last year while participating in a reading for a one-act play in Los Angeles.
Whether or not that led to “The Tale” is unclear, though Common would no doubt love to win a second Oscar.
Looks like she has a thing for singers as her former husband happened to be a singer as well.
Moving on, the couple looked comfortable with each other as they were all smiles. Common is a dad to his 18-years-old daughter Omoye Assata Lynn and Laura on the other hand is raising her two kids, Ellery Walker born August 21, 2001, and Jaya born November 28, 2004.
According to an source, Laura is trying various aspect of her life and looking forward to how things shape up. At the very least, both of them knows how to raise kids and that's more than enough to make a relationship stronger.
