The nice thing about being a star is that you don’t have to be smart. There are writers ready to turn you into that ace detective or famous physicist even if you’re dumb as a stick. Unfortunately, sometimes in an interview, the truth leaks out. Like it does in these little nuggets of wisdom:
Sienna Miller’s fans should remember one thing about their idol: she’s not a doctor. So when she said, about cigarettes, ‘I love them. Love them. I think the more positive approach you have to smoking, the less harmful it is,’ the Carolinas might thank her for the thumbs-up but you shouldn’t take her medical advice.
Raven-Symoné does’t like things being too black, and she thinks she knows just where to draw the line. ‘I’m not about to hire you if your name is ‘Watermelondrea, It’s just not going to happen.’ Got that? So if that’s your name, you should make other plans.
Lindsay doesn’t let anything get her down, and thinks you shouldn’t either. Asked about an impending disaster, the actress retorted, ‘WHY is everyone in SUCH a panic about a hurricane.? Stop projecting negativity! Think positive and pray for peace.’ Hope she’s feeling positive about her finger, and hope it wasn’t the one she uses to dial Disaster Relief.
David Hasselhoff sees ‘Baywatch’ differently from us. He sees a mission to enlighten humanity. ‘Beyond its entertainment values, ‘Baywatch’ has enriched and in many cases helped save lives,’ said the series’ star. And here we thought it was all about Jiggly.
Mischa Barton is sick and tired of the persecution pretty people like her have suffered. ‘The truth is, pretty people aren’t as accepted as other people,’ she told a U.K. rag. ‘It comes with all these stigmas.’
Ageism and actresses? Russell Crowe wants you to know it’s all in your head. ‘I think you’ll find that the woman who is saying that (the roles dry up for women no longer young and pretty) is the woman who at 40, 45, 48, still wants to play the ingénue, and can’t understand why she’s not being cast as the 21-year-old.’ Just play mama! Sorry, Maximus. Truth is, actresses do face fewer work prospects in the movies. Luckily, though, TV is quite different.
What Russell Crowe is to ageism and sexism, Stacey Dash is to racism: a star who keeps putting her foot in her mouth. ‘If we don’t want segregation, then we need to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the (NAACP) Image Awards,’ she said. See? Problem solved!
Morgan Freeman thought he’d drive a while down that uncertain road as well, promising that everything would be better if we would ‘stop talking about (racism)’. Though he was probably just referring to Stacey Dash and Raven-Symoné.
Arnold has found a way to make both gay and straight sex more frustrating. ‘I think that gay marriage is something that should be between a man and a woman,’ he opined. Talk about pressure to perform!
Elizabeth Hurley has found a crusade, and with it, a heightened sense of herself. ‘I’m sick of seeing flab bulging out all over… I’ve always thought Marilyn Monroe looked fabulous, but I’d kill myself if I was that fat’. So, fellas. Who’d you rather have wake up beside you tomorrow morning? Elizabeth Hurley?
Or Marilyn Monroe?
Elizabeth, you might want to see somebody about this…
