This looks like a Saturday Night Live bit when Morgan Freeman barely remains awake during this live interview. The best part is when they return on camera after the movie clip is shown. Priceless! -JRoycroft
March 24, 2013 – Here comes another Hollywood celebrity joining the ranks of such greats as Morgan Freeman running at the mouth with their stupid self promoting comments. Jim Carrey is the celebrity asshole of the day. Apparently Carrey is trying to recreate his role as Dumb or Dumber in his latest Tweet where he stirs controversy over his recent asinine comment pushing his new anti-gun song:
Jim Carrey’s ‘Cold Dead Hand’: Hey, here’s a song for ‘heartless motherf*ckers unwilling to bend for the safety of our kids’
‘Cold Dead Hand’ is abt u heartless motherf%ckers unwilling 2 bend 4 the safety of our kids.Sorry if you’re offended… http://say.ly/jtu5rar
It would be much too easy to critisize Carrey for his recent dumb comments when you take into consideration how much this jerk spends on protecting himself and his family. So I won’t waste much time by repeating what every other person has already said about him.
One thing we can always expect from these has been celebs, they will always jump at the opportunity to use politics to push their own personal agendas in a last ditch effort to save their own failing careers. It has nothing to do with guns, it has everything to do with publicity. -JRoycroft
February 19, 2013 – You gotta love those Brits.
Booker Prize winner Hilary Mantel made some pretty derogatory comments about Kate Middleton during her lecture for the London Review of Books entitled Undressing Anne Boleyn. Her attack on Middleton included snide remarks saying that she looked ”plastic” with “dead eyes”.
She said: “I saw Kate becoming a jointed doll on which certain rags are hung. In those days she was a shop-window mannequin, with no personality of her own, entirely defined by what she wore.
“These days she is a mother-to-be, and draped in another set of threadbare attributions. Once she gets over being sick, the press will find that she is radiant. They will find that this young woman’s life until now was nothing, her only point and purpose being to give birth.”
For a woman that looks like an anemic whale, and goes out in public wearing beach towels, I’d say Mantel needs to invest in a nutrition plan and a mirror before commenting on other peoples appearances. -JRoycroft

June 25, 2012 - ”The Newsroom’s” Emily Mortimer calls the Tea Party a “lunatic fringe,” and says Americans fall too easily for lies.
What? An actor said what? Imagine that, an actor calling the Tea Party a lunatic fringe and thinks Americans fall for lies.
I suppose the Hollywood crowd is the group that we normal Americans should be looking to for guidance and advice in our day to day lives.
Emily Mortimer, sorry dear but I have no idea who you are…never heard of you until today. I hope that does not offend you or hurt your little feelings. Eh!
Actors…Here we have a group of people who live their lives pretending to be someone else. These people live in a cocoon surrounded by aids. The only personal decision they make is when to do a number One or Two. And even then they probably have someone else wipe their butts for them.
Actors live their lives in a fantasy world. Their whole world is someone else’s script. They are told what to say, how to say it, when to say it, what to wear, how to look. They have someone do their hair and make up. They rely on aids to plan their every move. Nothing about these people is real. They are complete fakes from the time they wake up till the time they go to bed. They are incapable of living and coping in real life events without someone holding their hands. And this Emily Mortimer bimbo is calling the Tea Party a lunatic fringe?
Sorry Emily, but your script sucks! -JRoycroft

June 20, 2012 – If there’s one thing I don’t like – it’s being bothered by pushy little jerks. I don’t like crowds and I couldn’t care less about social events or hanging out with the masses. I like my own personal space to be free and clear of other beings. In other words, leave me the f**k alone!
In the news today we have Mr Alec Baldwin, a really great actor but a guy who I dislike simply because of his liberal politics. However when it come to those insipid little paparazzi goons, I must take sides with Baldwin and every other person who has fallen victim to their attacks.
Today we all heard about what a mean asshole Alec Baldwin was when he shoved that sissy little photographer, Marcos Santos, after leaving the marriage bureau. Cry me a damn river you little candy ass. You all spend your lives stalking your victims, shoving your cameras into their faces and pretend to believe you have some God given right to commit an assault on anyone within inches of you for the sake of that one money shot. So what if it’s your damn livelihood. Has the thought ever once crossed your inconsiderate minds that maybe, just maybe your targets have the right to self defense when you block their right of way or shove that camera into their faces? How about when you stalk their families? In as much as I personally dislike most celebrities I do however understand and side with them on the issue of personal space and privacy. When you little bitches with your cameras become equivalent to irritating little gnats flying around my face, then you have become the aggressor and also the target of whatever the f**k comes your way. You infringe on my space, you’re gonna pay for that infrigment. It’s an equal playing field out there. So shut your crying little mouths and deal with the fact that two can play your little games. You get in my face and guess what jerk, I’m getting in yours twice as damn hard.
I’m so sick and tired of seeing these little cowards crying in front of TMZ or Entertainment Tonight because some big bad celebrity pushed them while they were just attempting to do their jobs.
People have a right to some degree of personal space no matter how damn famous they think they are. They also should have the right to shove back and protect that personal space with equal force or whatever means necessary to get you the hell out of their damn way so that they can walk down a sidewalk or drive on a city street.
For every celebrity that’s ever bitch slapped a paparazzi, God bless you for that! -JRoycroft

May 20, 2012 – Robin Gibbs, co-founder of the singing group The Bee Gees died sunday after a long and painful battle with cancer. He was 62 years young.
Cancer victims hold a special place in my heart because my father and my close cousin Larry Cruce were also victims of cancer.
This is my personal tribute to the late and wonderful voice of Robin Gibb.
“May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face. May the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, May the Lord hold you in the palm of His hand.”
You will be missed and may you rest in peace. -JRoycroft
May 20, 2012 – From Rolling Stone Magazine :
Robin Gibb, one-third of the Bee Gees, died Sunday after a long battle with cancer, his spokesperson has confirmed via a statement. Gibb was 62 years old.
“The family of Robin Gibb, of the Bee Gees, announce with great sadness that Robin passed away today following his long battle with cancer and intestinal surgery,” reads the statement. “The family have asked that their privacy is respected at this very difficult time.”
Two years ago, Gibb battled colon and liver cancer, but despite making what he called a “spectacular recovery,” a secondary tumor recently developed, complicated by a case of pneumonia in April. The singer was hospitalized last month and fell into a coma at one point, although he was later said to have regained consciousness and communicated with family members.
Gibb was born in the Isle of Man in 1949, along with twin brother Maurice. (Maurice died in 2003 of complications from a twisted intestine; eerily, Robin had surgery for the same medical issue in 2010.) Along with their older brother Barry, the brothers began harmonizing as a trio in Australia, where the family moved in 1958. Although the Bee Gees had some success in Australia – they hosted a weekly variety show there – they didn’t truly arrive until they returned to England and signed with manager Robert Stigwood. Robin’s quivering, vulnerable voice was featured prominently on several of the group’s earliest and most Beatles-eque hits, including “New York Mining Disaster 1941,” “I Started a Joke,” “Massachusetts,” and “I’ve Gotta Get a Message to You.”
Although he looked and sounded like the meekest Bee Gee, Robin grew into the family rebel. By 1969, he and Barry were feuding over whose song should be singles, and Robin, then 20, was declared a “ward of the state” by their father when his drinking and partying seemed to take over his life. “It happened so fast that we lost communication between us,” Gibb later recalled. “It was just madness, really.”
But it was also Robin who, in 1971, made the first call to Barry to reunite with his brothers. Robin’s solo career had stalled, and Barry and Maurice’s attempts to continue the Bee Gees as a duo had floundered as well. “If we hadn’t been related, we would probably have never gotten back together,” Robin said at the time. Robin’s voice was heard, beautifully, on the chorus of their minor 1972 hit “Run to Me.”
The Bee Gees’ massive second wind arrived with their proto disco hit, “Jive Talkin’,” in 1975; two years later, their contributions to Saturday Night Fever made them bigger stars than ever. Most of the hits from that era featured Barry’s falsetto voice, but the brothers’ vocal blend remained an indelible part of their sound.
The group entered another fallow period during the early Eighties, although during this time, Robin produced a semi-hit album by Jimmy Ruffin, brother of the Temptations’ David Ruffin. The last Bee Gees album, This Is Where I Came In, was released in 2001. Two years later, Maurice died, and with his passing the Bee Gees ended. (Their other, younger brother Andy died in 1988.)
Robin and Barry reunited periodically – in 2010, they made an appearance on American Idol and inducted ABBA into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame – and talked about a duo tour, but nothing materialized. Robin, though, kept his hand in music. With his son Robin-John, he wrote an ambitious piece, The Titanic Requiem, a mix of orchestral and vocal pieces telling the story of the doomed liner on the 100th anniversary of its sinking. “It’s a serious subject and it’s not a rock opera,” Gibb said before its debut. “There are no backbeats. This could have been written 300 years ago.”
Featuring the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the work had its world premiere in London on April 10th. But in a sign that Gibb’s health had taken a turn for the worse, he wasn’t able to attend.
