BRAD PITT:                                                 ‘You shouldn’t speak until you know what you’re talking about. That’s why I get uncomfortable with interviews. Reporters ask me what I feel China should do about Tibet. Who cares what I think China should do? I’m a fucking actor! They hand me a script, I act. I’m […]

  Anne Heche & Harrison Ford in Six Days, Seven Nights (1998) Anne & Ellen on the red carpet 1997 Six Days, Seven Nights (1998) was mercilessly panned by the critics after its release. Personally, I quite liked it, primarily because of Anne Heche’s thoroughly enjoyable performance. Harrison Ford chose the […]

ANGELINA JOLIE – Smoke and mirrors?

July 28, 2017 Alan Royle 4

  Angelina Jolie is an enigma. She is both secretive and outrageously candid. She is selfish and at times quite selfless. She can be buoyant and effervescent one minute; depressed and suicidal the next. From an early age she was highly sexual and into self-mutilation. Her mother seemingly encouraged the […]

Hollywood philanthropists – a quick look.

July 26, 2017 Alan Royle 2

  In the last 20-30 years there has developed a philanthropic culture in Hollywood involving superstars in the movie industry. Cynics are quick to accuse these people of ‘image-making’, or of diverting media attention from potential career-damaging headlines of a personal nature. In some instances that has certainly happened, but […]

Leonardo DiCaprio – sensible superstar.

November 13, 2015 admin 4

  I wonder if any of the non-entities who comprised the cast of the woeful 1991 low budget horror feature Critters 3 entertained any suspicions that the 17 year-old who made his movie debut playing the part of Josh in it would go on to become an icon in the […]

The Scientology Set ( Pt 2 )

April 23, 2015 admin 2

Yesterday I wrote a little about the Church of Scientology and its adherents (both past and present) in the world of entertainment. Alphabetically, I got as far as ‘G’. Here are the rest of them:     HAYES, Isaac: Singer/songwriter, occasional actor. An active Scientologist, the ‘church’ forced him to […]

March 6, 2015 admin 0

  The daughter of Oscar-winning actor Jon Voight, (he won for his 1978 performance in Coming Home), Angelina Jolie Voight chose not to use her father’s name because she had no time for him back then. She was always going to be an actress, as evidenced by her enrolment at […]
