Hollywood Minute: A Political Year in Review
You may have thought that all your Hollywood favs would stay focused on rehab and divorce now that their boy Al Gore tanked like a Henry Jaglom movie at a junior high slumber party, but well, uh, oops. They didnt. And so now its time, to take a moment to reflect on a year when Hollywood mega-stars gave their valuable opinions on everything from war to child-rearing
Rosie ODonnell: Hates guns, loves Bush. Bragged that she went to Yankee Stadium without her full time armed guard. Guess what, Rosie? Secret Service doesnt take kindly to police academy drop-outs with firearms going Clint Eastwood anywhere near the President, so let's not try to make it sound like an act of bravery, get it? Got it? Good.
Okay, anyone who DIDNT say that George W. Bush would never be your president, please step forward...
Not so fast, Julia.
Hi Im the president.
Hi, Im the President and I told the BBC that Bush is a moron.
Hi, I played a doctor in a movie once. I can remove those tonsils for you, Martin.
Hi, I played a crazy chick in a movie.
Hi, I, uh, hi, officer.
Winona Ryder: heres the stats: businesses lose about $16 billion a year to shoplifting. Each family in the U.S. spends $300 per year to make up the difference. You cost us half our tax rebate, sweetie. It's called an orange jumpsuit. Get used to it.
Alec, its called a microphone. Stay away from it.
Lets all be friends---
And hold hands and---
BOO! You stink! Go away!
Thank you all
BOOO!! Off the stage!
Hi, I played a drunk in a movie.
Babs wrote a letter to all the Democrats in Congress. Dear Every liberal in Congress. Bush stole the election. You guys are wimps. Sincerely, Barbra.
Dear Yentl: Al lost. Get over it. Sincerely, 90% of America.
Hi, I played a drunk.
Want kids but dont want a husband? Ask yourselves: WWRD: What would Rosie Do?
Hey princess, wasnt that a kick when your boy Brad teased Jenna Bush about drinking?
Hey Malibu Brad, wasnt that funny when your wifes movie Rock Star sank faster than Leo DiCaprio at the end of Titanic? Its called, youre good looking, but youre idiots. Deal with it.
Hi, Im going to run for office someday. Im a war hero. I shot down seven of those planey thingies at Pearl Harbor.
Are you still here?
Thats the Hollywood Political Minute. Happy New Year everyone!
Julia Roberts: "The man's embarrassing. He's not my president and he never will be either."
From a Larry Elder essay on Martin Sheen: Yet, only weeks later, Sheen tells London's BBC that he finds Bush "a moron." And the Brits undoubtedly yucked it up when Sheen called "Alcoholics Anonymous and jazz" the only important American exports. At a speaking engagement in Berkeley, Calif., he said the media may love Bush, but "he's still a moron," adding, "He's trying all the big stuff and doesn't want to leave well enough alone. It gets real, real scary for me." Sheen calling Bush a moron? For the record, a Sheen biography says that he "purposely flunked his college entrance exam to the University of Dayton so that he could pursue an acting career instead."
On ABC's "Good Morning America," Affleck said about his inevitable jump to politics: "I mean, I think of having a more broad spectrum of people in political life would be helpful to the process. I've just fantasized about doing it myself because, I don't know, I think it would be less invasive than being an actor. I would get my private life back." (The Hotline)
Julia Roberts: "We all need to take a deep breath and think about being a Bush daughter and having that cross to bear. I'd go out and have a couple of drinks too.
Harvey Weinstein, head of Miramax: "If you had a recount today, Al Gore would get 90 percent of the vote and Bush would get 10 percent, and Bill Clinton would be the honorary Treasury secretary and we wouldn't have this economic crisis, because the way the stock market was going we're all going to be wiped out." (Washington Post)
ROSIE O'DONNELL: "I love him now!" O'Donnell told KRLA-AM's Dennis Prager. O'Donnell said she even got to Yankee Stadium an hour early for a World Series game so that she could videotape Bush! 'I brought a videocamera and my six year old son and no security so that my son could see the president," said O'Donnell. (Drudge Report)
Camryn Manheim: "It's the way of the future, so people better start opening up their minds and expanding their horizons," lectures pregnant single actress Camryn Manheim of TV's "The Practice." "I feel sorry [for people who] can't celebrate such beauty." (from Debbie Schlussel WND)
On Brad Pitt & Jennifer Aniston: Before "first daughter" Jenna Bush returned to school, she interned at Brad and Jennifer's management company. The couple couldn't help it but to make her feel a little more comfortable as she walked through the halls.
"We'd pass her in the hall and Brad would say, 'Heyyyy, Jenna, wanna beer? I got one in the truck!'" Jennifer laughed.
Ya know, if we could just add Camryn Mannheim and Callista Flockhart and divide by two...
Hmmmmm? Who's that guy that looks like Barney?
Thanks BUMP! Good job - I enjoyed your collage!
He really does look nuts, doesn't he?
Kip has some advice for you Tom...
