I hear you. Not even your worst enemy.
Whatever it is I hope he gets through it.
I adore him...he is so cute and quirky.
Everyone wants to be wealthy and famous, but the wealthy and famous don’t seem very happy.
“Cars is now my all-time favorite car-toon!”
it’s a regular staple around this house that’s full of little critters.
“TSSHH - KOOWWW!”
“BTW, he was awesome in Zoolander.”
I could watch Zoolander over and over.
“Its hard to dislike the guy. I know he donated money to Hillary Clinton but he, Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, and Will Ferrell are all hilarious. I enjoy every movie hes in.”
Isn’t he also the perfect ex-boyfriend in the Focker movies?
“Im watching Behind Enemy Lines right now and my mom and I are not too enlightened with this war. Was the mass graves full of Muslims or Christians? Who killed them?”
I didn’t see that movie, but that part of the world had mass graves dug for all the different groups.
If this was about the most recent conflicts I think it was the muslims that took the hardest hit.
It is one of the things I really like about him. He looks like himself rather then some cookie cutter pretty boy stamped out in a factory somewhere.
I swear every one in Hollywood goes to the same plastic surgeon because they all have the exact same nose.
“Should I be sad?”
I don’t know. That’s up to you I guess.
I think any kind of mass grave where innocent fathers and sons are shot and thrown in is sad no matter who they are.
The more you learn about this particular area of the world, the more you see that the various groups involved (Serbs, Croats, muslims) have taken their turns committing these crimes against each other.
An endless cycle of revenge for past deeds.
The ones who usually wind up paying are the innocent villagers trying to scrape by on their little farm.
Well, not everybody!
I remember when he used to be a attractive young man. I guess that makes me old.
kicked out of St Marks prep school...Preston road, north dallas
just read up on a bio....dad was PBS executive.....well that explains too much
just shows when to me it seems like a fella has the world by the tail with cash, fame, travel, all the fine women one coulda handle at one time
and is really despondent enough to try to either take their own life or pretend to for attention
what a waste of opportunities
when I younger I led a bit of Life of Reilly and had too much money and the various lusts that go with youth and I was damned happy. Every day was an adventure and exciting.
Sorry it isn’t that way for this boy.
I didn’t even know about this until it was mentioned on the local news THIS morning. My 3 year old has been watching Cars all weekend long. I hope Mr. Wilson comes to terms with whatever demons are plaguing him. I really like his acting (Not just in Cars, btw. :-)) and would hate to not have him around.
I liked him in that movie too and agree he is funny.
yes, that’s it!
I remember too since the first appearance of the Jackson Five, he was a cute kid. And just fine looking back in the day ‘in his own skin’ vs. whatever he did to lighten his skin.
Talented people are not typical. I was saddened to hear about it tonight, but having enjoyed watching him act with Jackie Chan, Eddie Murphie, and in other shows, I can see where he’s deeply introspective about human emotions.
I thought he was dead.
Muslims in mass graves over Kosovo? Exaggerated hype to talk up bombing our fellow Christians in Serbia. Not kidding you. We supported terrorists from Albania over Serb Christians. Probably the most unrighteous war we ever fought. If anyone deserves reparations, its the Serbs.
Oh good greif. LOL!
Arthur you catching up on some old threads. LOL
I dunno - right now 2007 is looking pretty good.
This was 5 years ago!
Yes, that was observed 20 hours ago!
“Yes, that was observed 20 hours ago!”
You got me there!
