It is funny, to me at least, how the Hollyweird elite think that they are the pulse of the nation, even as they sip champagne in Cannes, attend all sorts of parties populated by like-minded people, instead of actually, you know, living between the people they say they represent. And that there are a lot of supposedly normal people who think they are so right in their views that they follow them slavishly. Sean Penn comes to mind. The boy who played Bourne in the trilogy. When I hear them speak about what is happening in the world, I wonder every time, where exactly their heads are lodged, or if they've donated their brains to science because they sure as hell aren't using them for thinking, or you know, actually researching the problems we mere mortals face from all sides.
Found this after my original post. I shudder to think how this story would play out in the political world of Kentucky. Particularly note the part when she is asked about spirituality. Her response is " ÒChurch and religion are SO important to me. The God thing, the Jesus thing, the Buddha thing, so important to me" Just ponder, just ponder how that statement would play in rural Kentucky.
It used to be that most actors and actresses actually worked for a living before they got into acting. Most of them weren't narcissistic idiots who thought the world revolved around them. I think most of the Old Guard actually served in some capacity during the last World War and even before and after, actually held down jobs. Charles Bronson used to work in coal mines if I recall correctly.
And here we have Miss Ashley Judd. Who seems to have a very well developed Diva-gene. When was actually the last time she appeared in a movie, again? I can't be bothered to look it up. Truthfully, most, if not all of the current crop of 'movie stars' are living in their own world, congratulating each other on how fabulous they are, how smart they are and if the 'little people' just acknowledged that, all would be well. They don't know history, do they, because it seems they are all channeling Marie Antoinette and we all know what happened to her.
Seriously, there are a few actors/actresses, who studiously refrain from weighing in on politics and such, unless specifically asked by reporters and invariably, they turn out to be conservatives. Not to mention, they give well thought out answers, that have the rest of Hollyweird up in flames. Quite a contrast with Miss Judd and her ilk and those people I admire.
Gary Graham. Gary Sinise. Bruce Willis. Clint Eastwood. Schwarzenegger (even though he couldn't save California, but no one can). A few others whose name doesn't come to me right now.
