  • Money speaks louder than words! Matt Damon 'may have earned $1 million per line' for his fourth [tr]

    Matt Damon returns to movie theatres on July 29 as Jason Bourne in his fourth appearance as the amnesiac special ops agent. And director Paul Greengrass has revealed that in the finished film, the actor, 45, has just 25 lines of dialogue. That's led to speculation that the star, who got paid $25 million for last year's The Martian, was likely paid at least $1 million for each line he spoke.

    Susan Sarandon delivered an emotional tribute to her late friend David Bowie during the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday night — but many viewers at home were focused on something else entirely as the actress’ revealing outfit racked up comments on social media. The 69-year-old actress, grandmother and fervent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) supporter donned a white pantsuit combo with just a black bra on underneath while presenting the evening’s “In Memoriam” tribute honoring the celebrities who have died this year. Sarandon began the segment by honoring musician David Bowie, who passed away earlier this month at the age...

    Real Clear Politics ^ | September 17, 2015 | Michelle Malkin
    Matt Damon opened his mouth and let the truth about the left's superficial commitment to "diversity" slip out. Now, liberal ideologues are furiously whacking the relentless GOP-bashing actor for his "white privilege." There's even a Twitter hashtag -- "#damonsplaining" -- that erupted this week to mock his unforgivable political transgression. Here's what happened. Damon (along with his progressive pal Ben Affleck) co-produces the television series "Project Greenlight," which gives wannabe filmmakers the opportunity to compete for a shot at directing their first feature film. The current season's prize script features a man who weds a black prostitute after being abandoned...

    In an interview with the UK Daily Telegraph this week, actor Sean Penn explained that he watches beheading videos made by the Islamic terrorist group ISIS in order to see and understand real violence. The problem is we are not seeing enough of real violence, Penn told the paper. We are being anesthetized when you dont see the horror of war. In the Sixties, we grew up with the horror of Vietnam on our television screens every day. Today we have become anesthetized.

    Sometimes, you just need Texas. As the rest of the entertainment industry was being brought to its knees by the threat of more hacking and terrorism, a theater in Texas decided to both capitalize on this story and stand up for freedom of speech. The only bummer is theyre holding a free screening, as Id hoped theyd rake in a bunch of cash for filling a gap in the market, which would be as appropriately American as the statement theyre making about our values. They should be rewarded, and they will be, at least with brand recognition and good will:...

Affleck, the star of Good Will Hunting and director of Argo, appeared on HBOs television show Real Time with Bill Maher to promote his latest film, Gone Girl. But instead of talking about the film, the 42-year-old found himself in a furious discussion with both Maher and Sam Harris, the author of a series of books on religion.

    Democratic fundraiser/actor Ben Affleck and the next big-screen Batman recently gave an interview to Playboy. His own bias against Republicans, he admits, prevents him from fully enjoying a Republican actors performance. Its hard, said Affleck, to get people to suspend disbelief. Affleck said: When I watch a guy I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldnt like this person if I met him, or we would have different opinions. That (bleep) fogs the mind when you should be paying attention and be swept into the illusion.

    Alec Baldwin has never been a fan of paparazzi, but they sure love hanging out around him, despite his behavior toward them. For example, this afternoon, Baldwin reportedly pinned a photographer against the hood of a car. Baldwin was angry that the photographer was trying to take pictures of his wife Hilaria, days after she gave birth to their daughter. The police were called. It was a mess. See photos of the incident below. You'd think instead of fighting, the two could've just chatted about wearing long socks with shorts.

So did Blokamp's first politically tinged sci-fi feature, the overrated but promising "District 9." According to McCarthy's astute review, though, "Elysium" goes a step further into the arena of wild left-wing, Hollywood hypocrisy. Here is how McCarthy describes the world and plot of what is likely another box-office bomb from star Matt Damon: Blomkamp sets the dystopian juices flowing with images of future sprawling slums and urban ruin that one might initially take to be Mexico City...

    A word of warning: It’s impossible to review Promised Land, the new movie written by Matt Damon and John Krasinski and directed by Gus Van Sant, without giving away its twist ending. Though the plot turn is fumbling in its execution, it is the slyest tactic in the movie’s clumsy crusade against fracking, the process of injecting high-pressure chemicals, water, and sand into the ground to access vast quantities of otherwise inaccessible natural gas.Here’s the premise: Steve Butler (Damon) is a corporate salesman who draws on his rural roots to persuade farmers to sell their land to a fracking...

    Moore: Democrats are 'going to get an ass-whoopin' of biblical proportions' By Tony Romm - 03/07/10 09:08 AM ET Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore on Sunday railed on Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, predicting, "Democrats on Election Day 2010 are going to get an ass-whoopin' of biblical proportions if things don't change right now." In an open letter to the White House, Moore placed the blame for Democrats' dismal electoral prospects in 2010 squarely on the shoulders of Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, recently a popular target for liberals dissatisfied with the White House's handling of healthcare.

    There's going to be another crash. The commercial real estate bubble hasn't burst yet. That's going to burst. The credit card debt is so huge right now, it will never be repaid. That's a house of cards waiting to fall. So the crash of '08 is going to look like coming attractions. And we're in for a much, much worse time. When even Michael Moore sees that the Dems are fubarin', that the economy has NOT BEEN ADDRESSED by The One, and that we're likely headed for another, bigger recession/depression, ya gotta at least ask, WHY? Why has this fatass/walking...

    It's hard to think of a movie that'd play better in the Obama White House screening room than Matt Damon's new Iraq War thriller, "Green Zone," in which the Oscar-winner adroitly portrays a soldier fighting to expose the Bush administration's weapons of mass destruction deception. Yet for all the ammo his movie may give Democrats, Damon admits he's "disappointed" in the man who replaced George W. Bush.

    Emmy-winning actor Alec Baldwin's defenders blamed his ex, Kim Basinger, for ramping up the drama after an early morning 911 call by his daughter resulted in the "30 Rock" star being rushed to a Manhattan hospital.

Basinger, the buddy said, is jealous that Baldwin is co-hosting the Academy Awards next month and is using their daughter, Ireland, to rain on his parade....

    Rosie ODonnell is still spreading 9-11 conspiracy theories on her new Sirius/XM radio show. On Friday, she welcomed Broadway star (and one-season Saturday Night Live cast member) Christine Ebersole. The two entertainers agreed that something was fishy in Washington (just as they did on ABC's The View in 2007: EBERSOLE: I don't need to know what happened [on 9/11], because I don't, and that's why we need another investigation...I do know that the official government story is a complete and total lie. O'DONNELL: Yes, and that's what I've been saying, too. EBERSOLE: When you're a're called a conspiracy theorist...What...
