Sorry, I just can't go along with boycotts like this. There probably isn't a movie made that doesn't have some left-wing Hollywood idiot associated with it. If it's a good movie I'll watch it, even if I can't stand one of the actors in real life. For example I can't stand Alec Baldwin, but Hunt for Red October and The Edge were good movies that he was in.

BTW, you forgot Nick Nolte, Ben Affleck, Lucy Lu, Carmen Diaz, Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Anison, Brad Pitt, Sarah Jessica Parker, and a host of others.

I understand how you feel but I have come to the point where I have just about totally lost interest in movies which makes it very easy to boycott them. I will watch a movie where the offending celeb has a minor roll if I really, really like the leading characters. However as I said previously I just don't watch movies anymore that much. I can't stand these people just as much as I can't stand the clintons. I do like "The Lord of the Ring" and "Harry Potter" movies but other than that I have more or less sworn off then dang things...too expensive as well.

Exactly. Why should I have to boycott "The Matrix" sequels because Morpheus signed a piece of paper? He has the right to his opinion as do the few Freepers who have reservations about the war. It's not like I'm going to marry the guy.

No kidding. It'd be easier to keep track of the conservative actors as other Freepers do since it's a shorter list. And the real outspoken actors like Clooney are much more annoying then the regular actors who just okayed this through their publicist. I'd say less than half of that list is well known, if that.

This list largely consists of those who signed the Not in My Name petition. Some who are not on the list perhaps have been somewhat chastened at the outcry that arose from their shooting off their mouths in the last couple years and did not sign the petition. I would put Jennifer Anniston and Brad Pitt in that category.

This list is the most recent incarnation of Hollyweird stalinists. Some of the lefties have probably decided it is best not to shoot off their mouths and sign anti-American petitions.

I loved Hunt for the Red October but...threw it out. Will not support ANY of thes people. I don't care if I have to quit watching movies for the rest of my life...it won't be any great loss.
