Tim Robbins -- Mr. Peace wants a piece of a reporter's head
Washington Post ^ | 3/25/2003 | Lloyd Grove

Posted on 03/25/2003 6:33:24 AM PST by stayout

As for Robbins, we said hello to him in a crush of partygoers that included his life partner, Susan Sarandon (both of them had displayed their deep commitment to nonviolence by holding up the two-fingered sign of peace at the Academy Awards). Robbins flashed a smile and jovially shook our hand -- Bob Roberts at a campaign stop. But when we mentioned that we'd had the pleasure of talking recently with 79-year-old Lenora Tomalin -- conservative Republican, George W. Bush supporter and wry observer of her daughter Sarandon -- his expression turned cold.

"Wait. You're the one who wrote about Susan's mother?"

Robbins narrowed his eyes and pursed his lips -- the secretly murderous neighbor in "Arlington Road."

"You wanted to be divisive and you caused trouble in my family," he went on -- the unjustly imprisoned banker in "The Shawshank Redemption." He added that it was especially low to have quoted Tomalin's speculation that he and Sarandon had politically "brainwashed" her grandson Jack Henry.

"At least you got Jeb Bush to call her -- that was great," Robbins spat -- the bitterly cynical studio executive in "The Player." He moved within inches and said into our ear: "If you ever write about my family again, I will [bleeping] find you and I will [bleeping] hurt you."

I guess Timmy Boy's version of the First Amendment has a One Way sign on it.

I see. His actions and support for a terrorist regime can endanger MY family, but should somebody write about his, then he's all for mayhem?

Good to know.

You KNOW P-whipped Robbins must also secretly pack heat as a way to make himself feel like Susan doesn't constantly cut his b@lls off. But of course, he actively seeks to take away YOUR right to carry a gun.

(How horrifying must it be to be Susan's mother, seeing what a slutty, atheist b*tch her daughter grew up to be..........)

Tim Robbins plays hockey on the side, and has a reputation for having a short temper on the ice.

That photo is proof of the Hollywood intellect, and supports the actors claims of being much more than brainless. As you can see, Robbins and Sarrandon are proudly displaying the cumulative scores from their IQ tests.

Can't remember where I read it - maybe a thread here - but IIRC he plays at Chelsea Piers in NYC, and has a reputation as a gigantic p**** - anyone who so much as touches the big pansy on the ice gets suspended from play after he whines to the league about it....

Astonishing to find this sentence in the Washington Post.

He moved within inches and said into our ear: "If you ever write about my family again, I will [bleeping] find you and I will [bleeping] hurt you."

Even more astonishing.

Post readers get a glimpse of a leftist peace thug with his mask off.

So many "peace activists" are not peaceful inside. They are at war with their dark emotions and motivations. Frauds.

I belong to the Chelsea Piers gym complex in NYC. So does Robbins. He is known for being a rough hitter on the ice. He knocks everyone around and they are too afraid of his star power to do anything. Then one day this other guy starts slamming the sh*t out of Robbins on the boards...really roughs him up...and he went crying to the management about it. It was in the Post. He's a big bully until someone stands up to him...then he's a big pussy.

I read that article about the crazy woman's mom--she seemed like a very sweet and sensible old lady, somebody I'd enjoy having lunch with. A funny part of the story is that she was very indignant at not being allowed a Christmas visit to the WH during the season when security was heavy. Seemed to take it personally.

He crossed Vanity Fair and that is a no-no. I can't wait for next month's issue when they will intelligently rip the moron up - they aren't the National Enquirer that people "pooh-pooh" - VF has become a respectable publication under Graydon Carter.

...and another thing, I played against whiney puss guys like this (I was the only female player in the league) and the best thing I could do was engage the bastard in the boards or in front of the net where I would embarass the hell out of them by putting them on their ass and the puck in the net. Being in LA, I have skated with and against many "Hollywood" types and for the most part, these guys just want to have fun and are pretty reserved. Any bastard who wants to draw attention to themself by throwing tantrums needs a good clock cleaning by someone who isn't a male - I am happy to skate a few shifts for any team playing against them.

Excellent observation. Naturally, it's excellent because it's one I often make myself. :-)
