  • George Clooney Signaling Political Move– He and Wife Amal Donating $500,000 to March (T)

    02/20/2018 9:54:56 AM PST · by rktman · 41 replies ^ | 2/20/2018 | Roger Friedman
    George Clooney continues his charitable giving– now half a million dollars to the March for Our Lives. He and wife Amal will make an appearance at the gun control rally. Clooney is an ardent supporter of civil rights in places like Sudan with the still-going Not On Our Watch (They are still giving hundreds of thousands of dollars there to protect the South Sudan). But this may signal a new political move by him by actual going to Washington DC on March 24th. Clooney– thanks to the sale of his Casamigas Tequila company for $1 billion– now has the money...

  • Revisiting One Of The Best Political Ads Of All-Time

    Happy Groundhog's Day, everyone! I wanted to refocus our attention for a moment on a political ad from the 2016 campaign. Robert Downey Jr. and a bunch of unknowns and has-beens put together an ad in support of Hillary (who is never mentioned) urging people to register so that a dude will appear naked in his next movie. Wow, that's *supposed* to get me motivated? I guess if the target audience are homosexuals and women, this was a good move but, honestly, the ad spends three minutes sending mixed messages about why, exactly, we should care to vote.

    People choose professions for many reasons, not the least of which is their ability, and some of which is the luck of being at the right place at the right time. [snip] With this as a background, University College of London psychologists Mark Davison and Adrian Furnham (2018) decided to dig into a question that you’ve probably had many times, especially if you follow celebrity news sites. Are all actors narcissists? [snip] Taking a look now at the results, perhaps not surprisingly, actors scored higher on the so-called “Cluster B” personality disorder traits of Narcissistic, Histrionic, and Borderline. However, their...
  • Jamie Lee Curtis blames Trump for Hawaii false alarm [psychotic libtards]

    Actress Jamie Lee Curtis attacked President Trump on Saturday over a false alarm sent by Hawaii's Emergency Management Agency (EMA) that alerted residents to a supposedly incoming ballistic missile. In a tweet posted Saturday afternoon, Curtis attacked Trump on Twitter, writing "YOU DID THIS!" despite the fact that the EMA, which is run by the state of Hawaii, apologized for the incident Saturday afternoon and Trump was golfing at the time. "This Hawaii missle scare is on YOU Mr. Trump. The real FEAR that mothers & fathers & children felt is on YOU. It is on YOUR ARROGANCE. HUBRIS. NARCISSISM....

    You can call me a multitasker; I’m a working actress, an accountant and also a tax attorney. My resume may sound a little unusual, but when April 15 hits, I will fit in with tens of millions of working Americans who have been hurt by sweeping changes in the tax code. The Trump-Republican tax plan, passed without one vote across the aisle, is the most unpopular tax bill in history, and for good reason. It gives small, temporary tax relief to middle-class workers, then raises our taxes to deliver large, permanent tax cuts to the super-rich and the corporations they...
  • Why is Hollywood so obsessed with Trump?

    December 8, 2017 | EdnaMode
    Prior to Trump being elected, most celebrities rarely tweeted about politics. If they did, it was usually the occasional tweet about climate change. Their twitter feeds were usually filled with behind-the-scenes photos and updates, project news and promotion and humorous banter. Occasionally, I check out the twitter feeds of actors that I used to follow before Trump was elected. Actors who regularly interacted with fans and used to share funny stories about their lives have become cold and distant. Many no longer reply to fans, and some barely promote their own projects anymore. Some celebrity twitter feeds are nearly 100%...
  • The real reason Hollywood is gunning for the NRA

    10/20/2017 5:19:05 AM PDT · by rktman · 14 replies ^ | 10/20/2017 | Lowell Ponte
    Actor Alec Baldwin and California lieutenant governor Gavin Newsom have helped launch a crusade to win an Oscar for the documentary Making A Killing: Guns, Greed And the NRA. Their reasons in this case may go beyond the predictable liberal virtue-signaling. When a sex scandal erupted against producer Harvey Weinstein, his first response was to pledge that he would "channel anger" in a campaign against the National Rifle Association, one of the most reliable devil-dolls liberals stick pins in to prove their bona fides. Weinstein must have been shocked when this gesture did not gain him instant forgiveness for his...
  • James Woods ‘Blacklisted’ from Hollywood

    James Woods is a well-known veteran Hollywood actor who, prior to 2013, was seen on the big and small screen numerous times. Things changed in 2013 when Woods became an outspoken critic of then President Obama, which is a big “no-no” in Hollywood. Why? Because being a conservative in Hollywood can cost you jobs, it’s like modern-day McCarthyism and career death sentence. On his blacklisted Hollywood status, Woods tweeted on August 21: “The only reason I express my views is that I have accepted the fact that I’m blacklisted. Also I bought Apple stock in the 80’s…” In 2013, Woods...

  • Actor Don Cheadle Thinks American Lapel Pin Is Secret Nazi Insignia

    Actor Don Cheadle on Saturday apparently mistook an eagle pin for a Nazi insignia. Cheadle, who’s been in several major films from “Hotel Rwanda” to “The Avengers,” implied that the eagle-shaped lapel of a CNN guest was some sort of Nazi insignia. He wrote: “Hey @CNN … Anybody wanna tealk about my man’s lovely brooch on his lapel? Anybody minding the store. #WTAF?!?” The pin was designed by Phyllis Schlafly in 1972 for her organization, the Eagle Forum, a conservative pro-family interest group. As a symbol, the eagle doesn’t belong exclusively to any one nation. Other countries to use eagles...
  • Will Upcoming Oscar Season Be New Face of Anti-Trump Hate?

    The 2017 Academy Awards ceremony felt more like a DNC revival than a tribute to the year’s best movies. Winner after winner, joke after monologue joke targeted new President Donald Trump. That may have been a warm-up act. Hollywood has embraced the resistance hashtag as much as any industry. And there are no signs that will stop as we steer into awards season. Martin Sheen just called his home country a “land of lunatics” for electing Trump. The industry collectively recoiled over the President’s tweet banning transgender Americans from serving in the U.S. Military. Stars like Mark Ruffalo and Michael...
  • Poll shows foul language curbs movie revenue

    It seems clear that everyday conversation in America has become coarser in recent years, but it doesn’t mean that the typical Hollywood film laced with language your grandmother would have punished with soap reflects reality or even makes good economic sense, contends a prominent film critic. In fact, a new Harris poll shows that filmmakers who use the f-word and take the name of Jesus Christ in vain risk losing some of their audience. The poll confirms extensive, in-depth surveys by Ted Baehr’s family-friendly publication Movieguide that examine some 150 different criteria that affect box office receipts. “One of the...
  • Is Casting Real-Life Heroes in 'The 15:17 to Paris' Clint Eastwood's Greatest Challenge Yet?

    07/16/2017 7:53:15 AM PDT · by rktman · 19 replies ^ | 7/14/2017 | Christian Toto
    Clint Eastwood has done it all. Literally. Acting legend? Check? Oscar glory? Multiple checks. Singer-songwriter? Yup. He even co-starred with an orangutan. Twice. And it didn't kill his career. But can he turn a trio of heroic young men into ... actors? Eastwood's next directorial project tells the true story of three men who thwarted a terrorist attack on a moving train. "The 15:17 to Paris" will star real-life heroes Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos and Spencer Stone. The trio will play themselves, recreating how they stopped a terrorist armed with an AK-47 on a train bound for Paris.

    Actors strike threatened: SAG-AFTRA outraged at studios failure for fair agreement The leadership of the SAG-AFTRA actors union reported Monday that negotiations with producers so far have yielded no agreement on a new three-year contract, and it said it was asking for a strike authorization vote to strengthen its hand. It said in a statement on the union’s website that it had been hard at work bargaining with the major studios and networks represented by the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers about a new three-year contract covering motion pictures, television and new media. “We had hoped to be...

    After drawing criticism last year for taking a private jet to accept an environmental award, Academy Award-winning actor and environmental activist Leonardo DiCaprio took a commercial flight to and from last weekend’s People’s Climate March in Washington, according to a source close to the actor. DiCaprio was also driven around locally in a Tesla electric car. In May 2016, DiCaprio flew to New York from France on a private jet to accept an award at the Riverkeeper Fishermen’s Ball. He reportedly flew back to Cannes after the ball. PJM learned that the actor traveled from New York to Washington and...

    Homeland star Mandy Patinkin says this season of the acclaimed Showtime television drama shows that it is perhaps “the white men in government and the military establishment that are the bad guys,” rather than the Muslim community. In an interview with MSNBC’s Chuck Todd this week, Patinkin said that society had “chosen the Muslim community” as a threat, despite the community making “contributions to the world of a monumental nature.” Patinkin also said the show, which has been criticized by the left as “Islamophobic” for linking Islam with terrorism, has taken responsibility for this portrayal and has changed its content...

    The Wednesday, April 5, episode of ABC’s conspiracy drama, Designated Survivor, may as well have been written by the Brady Campaign, or any one of Michael Bloomberg’s consortium of anti-Second Amendment organizations. For those unfamiliar with Kiefer Sutherland’s new role as President Tom Kirkman, he seems to have done a complete 180 from his days as 24’s Jack Bauer. Sutherland now stars as the reluctant president, thrust into the role after an attack on the State of the Union address kills most of his predecessor’s administration and the entirety of Congress. The warning signs were there. When the staff director...

    Tim Allen opened up briefly about what it means to be a conservative in Hollywood in 2017 during an interview with late-night host Jimmy Kimmel Thursday night, explaining that one must be “real careful” in talking about President Donald Trump or else risk being beaten up. “You’ve gotta be real careful around here. You get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody believes,” the 63-year-old Last Man Standing star told Kimmel when asked about his attendance at Trump’s inauguration in January.
