Nicole Kidman and 83 Hollywood heavyweights are using the power of the press to speak out against terrorism.
She has joined 84 other high-profile Hollywood stars, directors, studio bosses and media moguls, including News Corporation chairman Rupert Murdoch, has taken out a powerfully-worded full page advertisement in today's Los Angeles Times newspaper.
It specifically targets "terrorist organisations" such as Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Palestine.
"We the undersigned are pained and devastated by the civilian casualties in Israel and Lebanon caused by terrorist actions initiated by terrorist organisations such as Hizbollah and Hamas," the ad reads.
"If we do not succeed in stopping terrorism around the world, chaos will rule and innocent people will continue to die.
"We need to support democratic societies and stop terrorism at all costs."
A who's who of Hollywood heavyweights joined Kidman and Murdoch on the ad.
The actors listed included: Michael Douglas, Dennis Hopper, Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Danny De Vito, Don Johnson, James Woods, Kelly Preston, Patricia Heaton and William Hurt.
Directors Ridley Scott, Tony Scott, Michael Mann, Dick Donner and Sam Raimi also signed their names.
Other Hollywood powerplayers supporting the ad included Sumner Redstone, the chairman and majority owner of Paramount Pictures, and billionaire mogul, Haim Saban.
Wow. A moment of clarity among the Hollywierdos. These exhibit more conviction than John Dingell. Although this group is not among the "usual suspects" when it comes to leftist blowhards in Hollywood. Now, if only the Democrats would come around to condemn terrorism.
I guess Weekend at Fidels kept everyone from getting the fax last week. Their communist handlers wont be happy with this!
There are some Republicans among this group (Dennis Hopper -- who at least votes Republican, Bruce Willis, Patricia Heaton).
Isn't it good! Like a breath of fresh air.
Kidman separating from Tom Cruise was a clear indication she has a reasonable head on her shoulders.
Hollywood "cares" but who cares what Hollywood thinks? Will Hollywood leftists and their fellow travellers still vote for the John Dingels and Lamonts?
I was at a conservative film festival in Hollywood earlier this year, and Patricia Heaton was there.
Saban is a major Democrat contributor but he's also Jewish, so he's likely to at least get it re Israel. This would also apply to other liberals on the list like Michael Douglas.
I say work with co-beligerants. many a neo-con has come from their ranks.
Does anyone have a link to the full list of all 84 who signed this ad? Maybe a scan of the ad itself?
