Kate Hudson: 'Of Course They Hate Us'
Newsmax.com ^ | 7-25-03 | Carl Limbacher

Posted on 07/25/2003 11:37:50 AM PDT by Paul Atreides

If you're an American and you go near Kate Hudson, keep your mouth shut, and stay away from the condiments.

She's been filming her latest movie, "Le Divorce," in Paris, and she obviously prefers the company of Parisians to folks like us.

Since she's been in 'Gay Paree', Hudson has apparently grown accustomed to the somber qualities of the continental Europeans, rather than the happy-go-lucky character of real Americans.

In an interview, she said, "Sometimes I'll be walking down the street and I'll hear some American and I'll just go, 'Of course they hate us, of course they can't stand us.'"

Some American? Is she now excluding herself?

Mrs. Robinson continued: "We're the most annoying, boisterous creatures in the world. I mean we come in and we eat mounds of food, and we're like, 'Where's the kaachup [sic] for our French fries.' I'm like, 'Shut up!'"

Preferring one condiment to another on fries - say for instance gravy, as in Canada, or mayonnaise, as in Holland - is a sign of obnoxiousness?

We think not, Kate. We think that perhaps you should stay in France if you like it there, and we'll stay here and stop seeing your movies.

Oops! Judging from the box office results of "Alex & Emma," it looks like we already have!

And The Black Crowes are without a doubt one of the hardest working bands in rock & roll.

Not anymore.

Besides, Chris loves guns.

In light of what has happened with Kurt Cobain, Phil Spector and Adam Ant, that's not necessarily a good thing.

Kate has a point. Many American tourists behave deplorably.Living in Central Florida, an hour's drive from Disney World and all the other theme parks in Orlando and Tampa, I get to observe lots of tourists from overseas. The nicest, by far, are the British and the Australians. The worst are the French. They treat us locals as either circus freaks or servants. They're boorish, crude and arrogant in the extreme. Bad behavior while on vacation is not exclusively an American trait.

Yup, and a band that I have the upmost respect for due to them not comproimising their principles and giving into corporate sponsorship that they disagreed with.

Any band good enough for Jimmy Page to jam with gotta be good.Except for P.Daddy or whatever the hell his name is.[can't stand him,it was blasphemy to rip Kasmir the way he did]Saw the Crowes in Savannah years ago.Put on an excellant show.

I was once a lefty and I can tell you that a process is involved which begins with acquiring the ability to step outside of your country and view it from afar, the process gradually provides one with an extremely seductive feeling of belonging, also a sense of superiority over those who are not so enlightened, and evolves to the point where your country is THE ENEMY, in any and all instances.

I was a lefty once too, and let me applaud your analysis, but add one tiny suggestion. In my experience, it's not a matter of acquiring the ability to step outside the country to view it from afar, it comes from already feeling like a misfit in your own culture. Such people then, to protect the ego, decides that if they doesn't fit in it must be the fault of their culture, because otherwise they'll have to accept that there is something odd or wrong about THEM.

Of course, they never fit in anywhere, but living as an ex-patriot gives them the excuse as to why they don't fit in: they are ex-patriots, and they are regarded as rather exotic and special. This also appeals to the massive yet insecure ego of this particular breed of narcissist.

Well, the Robinson brothers' feud also had something to do with their demise. ;) I liked their 'Shake Your Money Maker' CD and the follow-up. These guys are famous (or infamous) for their push to get pot legalized.

How Hudson and Robinson hit it off is beyond me.

Robinson had said in interveiws that he's no pot activist.He don't care one way or another if it ever got legalized.He just likes to indulge and doesn't think it's for everybody.

The older you get,the less you get with the in your face legalize pot mentality.You start to get more unconfortable with being labeled a pothead and basicly get tired of fighting the system.It would be better for him to lay a low profile about it and just do his own thing.It's less hassle.

BTW - I checked out your home page and my hubby is also an environmental engineer. He graduated with his Master's Degree in 1998.

I bought the DVD, How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days and thought it was a scream,

I watched it last night. I was not expecting it to be very funny --maybe a chuckle or two here and there. Much to my surprise, I laughed myself silly throughout most of the film. Hudson is a natural comedienne.

Of course the fact that an American actually would want to visit France in the first place, probably is a good indication that they are obnoxious to begin with. ;)

She was nominated for an academy award for Almost Famous. She is the daughter of Goldie Hawn.

I haven't seen that one yet --mostly because it was poorly reviewed by critics.

However, I'm going to stop paying any attention to critics. Last week, I rented two films that were both panned by the critics; "The Life of David Gale" with Kevin Spacey and "Basic" with John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson. Both received horrible reviews. I found each film excellent. They both had "surprise" endings which I found to be refreshing and non-cliched. I enjoyed both films immensly.

On the flip side, I've seen many films lately that were well reviewed by the critics that I thought sucked ("Adaption", for one).

Well, it definately leans left concerning the death penalty. It also portrays death penalty supporting Texans as rubes. That being said, it was still an excellent film. Both Kevin Spacey and Kate Winslet (Titanic) were in top form. Then ending blew me away. No loose ends were left unanswered.

I usually buy films on DVD but I rented that one. I'll definately buy it at a later date.

What is it about Hollywood that turns otherwise likeable people into jack-asses? Is this the chicken and the egg theory, I'm pondering? Were they already asses and that is what attracts them to a life role that actually requires them to have no personality whatsoever. Or were they always (in the words of Est) A**holes!

Hollywood Leftists remind me of the kind of jerks that are driven to record their wisdom on a filthy bathroom stall.

Considering the People's State of France, I think Kate just did.

Genius In France

I'm not the brightest crayon in the box
Everyone says I'm dumber than a bag of rocks
I barely even know how to put on my own pants
But I'm a genius in France (yeah), genius in France, genius in France

Hoom chaka laka
Hoom chaka laka
Hoom chaka

I may not be the sharpest hunk of cheese
I got a negative number on my SATs
I'm not good looking and I don't know how to dance
But nevertheless and in spite of the evidence I am still widely considered to be
A genius in France, a genius in France, a genius in France

People say I'm a geek, a moronic little freak
An annoying pipsqueak with an unfortunate physique
If I was any dumber, they'd have to water me twice a week

But when the Mademoiselles see me, they all swoon and shriek
They dig my mystique, they say I'm c'est magnifique
When I'm in Par-ee, I'm the chic-est of the chic

They love my body odor and my bad toupee
They love my stripey shirt and my stupid beret
And when I'm sipping on a Perrier
In some cafe town in St. Tropez

It's hard to keep the fans at bay
They say, "Sign my poodle, s'il vous plait"
"Sign my poodle, s'il vous plait"

Hemenene humenene
himenene homenene
Poodle... poodle...

Folks in my hometown think I'm a fool
Got too much chlorine in my gene pool

A few peas short of a casserole
A few buttons missing on my remote control
A few fries short of a happy meal
I couldn't pour water out of a boot with instructions on the heel

Instructions on the heel
Instructions on the heel

But when I'm in Provence, I get free croissants
Yeah, I'm the guy every French lady wants
And if you ask 'em why, you're bound to get this response
(He's a genius in France! Genius in France!)

That's right
(He's a genius in France, genius in France)
You know it
(He's a genius in France, genius in France, genius in France)

I'm not the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree
But the folks in France, they don't seem to agree
They say, "Bonjour, Monsieur would you take ze picture with me?"

I say, "Oui, oui"
That's right, I say, "Oui, oui"
"Oui, oui"
He says, "Oui, oui"

I'm dumber than a box of hair
But those Frenchies don't seem to care
Don't know why, mon frere
But they love me there

I'm a genius in France
Yeah, I'm a genius in France

Gonna make a big splash when I show up in Cannes
Gonna make those Frenchies scream
"You ze man! You ze man! You ze man!"

Like a fine Renoir (waa), I've got that je me c'est quoi (quoi!)
Like a fine Renoir (ooh la la), I've got that je me c'est ...
Quoi quoi quoi quoi quoi, oo-we-oo
Quoi quoi quoi quoi quoi, oo-we-oo

Bow diddy bow di bow di bow bow diddy
Bow diddy bow di bow di bow bow diddy
Bow

[snort]

I'm a taco short of a combo plate
But by some twist of fate, all the Frogs think I'm great
Oh, the men all faint and the women scream
They like me more than heavy cream

When I'm in Versailles, I'm a popular guy
My oh my, I'm as French as apple pie (apple pie)
They think I'm awful witty, a riot and a half
When I tell a stupid joke, they laugh(haw haw haw haw haw)
And laugh (haw haw haw haw haw haw)

People in France have lots of attitude
They're snotty and rude, they like disgusting food
But when they see me, they just come unglued
They think that I am one happening dude

Bowm ba ba bowm ba bowm ba bowm
I'm about as sharp as a bowling ball
But they like me better than Charles de Gaulle

Entre nous, it's very true
The room temperature's higher than my IQ
But they love me more than Gerard Depardieu
How did this happen; I don't have a clue

Well, I'm not the quickest tractor on the farm
I don't have any skills or grace or charm
And most people look at me like I'm all covered with ants
But I'm a genius in France (yeah), genius in France, genius in France

And I'm never goin' back, I'm never goin' back
I'm never never never never goin' back home again
I'm tearin' up my return flight ticket
Gonna tell the folks back here where they can stick it

'Cause I'm never goin' back
I'm never goin' back
I'm never goin' back

The girls back home never gave me a chance
But I sho' 'nuff got them Frogs in some kinda trance
And I'm aware that it's a most improbable circumstance
But "Great Googily Moogily", I'm a genius in France

Every Frenchie that I meet
Just can't wait to kiss my feet
Get in line, pucker up! Tout Suite!

Bowm diddy bowm diddy bowm diddy

I'm gettin' even more famous by the hour
I'm stuffed with pastries and drunk with power
Now they're puttin' up my statue by the Eiffel Tower

A little more to the left, boys, a little more to the left
A little more to the left, boys, a little more to the left

I'm the biggest dork there is alive
My mom picked out my clothes for me 'till I was 35
And I forgot to mention
I'm not even welcome at the Star Trek convention

But the Frenchies think
That my poop don't stink
I'm a genius in France

Say, would you pass the Grey Poupon?
Merci beaucoup

LOL!!! That would be Counting Crows. The Black Crowes sorta sound like the Stones. A much more rockin' band. They have that early 1970s classic blues-rock sound.
