    The Academy award-winning actor Nicole Kidman used an appearance before the US Congress to accuse Hollywood of contributing to violence against women by portraying them as sex objects. Kidman was speaking yesterday in her role as a UN ambassador to a House foreign affairs subcommittee that is considering legislation to tackle violence against women overseas. When asked by Republican representative Dana Rohrabacher whether the film industry "played a bad role" in the way it portrayed women, Kidman replied "Probably", before going on to say that she refused to take roles that portrayed women as weak sex objects.

    On Dec. 7, 2007, the movie "The Golden Compass," based on the first book in the fantasy trilogy entitled "His Dark Materials" by atheist Philip Pullman will be released in theaters throughout the world. Pullman wrote his fantasy trilogy because he was so upset by the Christian evangelism of C.S. Lewis in his wonderful series of Christian tales entitled "The Chronicles Of Narnia." Pullman is an avowed atheist who has dedicated his life to undermining Christianity and the Church among young readers. The film's release is only another example of a culture spiraling away from faith, a culture into which...

    LONDON – A debate over a movie’s anti-religious antagonism – or lack thereof – is heating up ahead of its upcoming release, with some accusing Hollywood of “castrating” the anti-Catholic themes present in the novel from which it is based. The expected blockbuster, “The Golden Compass,” is named after the American title of best-selling author Philip Pullman’s novel “Northern Lights” and will star actress Nicole Kidman and James Bond star Daniel Craig. The original children’s novel, part of Pullman’s “His Dark Materials” series, rejects organized religion – in particular, the Catholic Church – and critics of the movie version say...

    Since most celebs tend to the liberal side of the political spectrum, it is a pleasant surprise when 84 Hollywood actors, directors, and producers joined Nicole Kidman in taking out a Los Angeles Times ad (above) condemning the terrorist activities by Hezbollah and Hamas in Lebanon and Israel. Particularly painful for the DUmmies must have been the tail end of the ad which said, "We need to support democratic societies and stop terrorsism at all costs."

    How did Nicole Kidman, one-time spouse of Tom Cruise, get re-married in a Catholic church if she didn't have an annulment? Clue: she wasn't actually married before. Nicole Kidman's wedding to country singer Keith Urban in Sydney at the weekend drew plenty of media attention. But some Catholics will have looked on perplexed at how the former bride of actor Tom Cruise managed to tie the knot for a second time, in a Catholic church.

    Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise may have blinded the Catholic Church with Scientology. The BBC reported Monday that, while there has been speculation that Kidman got her first marriage annulled so that she and Keith Urban could say their "I do's" in a Catholic chapel, it turns out that, because she and Cruise swapped vows upon the altar that L. Ron Hubbard built, she wasn't legally married in the first place--as far as the Catholic Church is concerned, that is. Father Paul Coleman, the priest who presided over Kidman and Urban's star-studded nuptials in Sydney over the weekend, told BBC...

    Los Angeles has renamed a public school after Johnnie Cochran, the late criminal defense lawyer who helped clear "Trial of the Century" murder defendant O.J. Simpson. School district officials voted unanimously for the name change Tuesday, saying Cochran, who attended the former Mt. Vernon Middle School as a boy, was an "extraordinary, superb lawyer with movie-star celebrity status." But the sister of Simpson's ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, whom the former star football player and actor was charged with stabbing and slashing to death, said she was stunned by the move.

    Hollywood has come to the rescue of the United Nations. The new film, "The Interpreter," is political propaganda designed to boost the image of the United Nations and make the U.S. look bad for opposing the International Criminal Court. Most reviews have focused on the part of the plot involving an evil African leader, President Zawani, who is accused of genocide and travels to the U.N. in New York for a speech and is the target of an assassination plot. But the political dimension of the plot involves the opposition by the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. to his trial...

In the past, Penn reportedly shot reporters with a squirt gun filled with his urine, so I got off easy. Classy guy. I critiqued Penn’s absurd interview in the thankfully defunct Talk Magazine. It was just months after 9/11, and Spicoli was deluded from smoking too much pot, again. He didn’t just insist that President Bush, Rupert Murdoch, Howard Stern, and Bill O’Reilly were as bad as...

In the story Nicole believes her deceased husband to be reincarnated - only this time as a 10 year old. This is really not a new theme in a film - numerous films have tried to play with the idea of someone we love "coming back" to us after their death. But few have been this controversial.
