Front page bump! Love this guy

We need more celebrities...

We need more celebrities like this. What kind of celebrity characters do we usually get???

Matt Damon and Sean Penn.

Don't forget

Chris Rock

"Have a sense of proportion."

"Have a sense of proportion." That was very good and put the interviewer in his place.

I'd say, keep things in the logical perspective and use common sense. A person with a picture of a rifle on their T-shirt is not a threat and is not a crime.

Well, actors are liars by profession. Funny thing I noticed:

many of those who often have villains or losers or anti-heroes/bad ass roles also often are quite liberty minded. Think for instance:

Him, Jeremy Irons, or Gary Oldman, or Vince Vaughn, or Gerard Depardieu, or Jean Reno (the Professional), or Schneider (Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo)...

Those who enjoy to play villains and losers, with talent... as opposed to those who prefer heroes and good guys roles... All of them lying for a living, since acting...

Would there be some odd counter-correlation to what they value in real life?

Nice interview with Irons, anyway.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

Only as high as i reach can i grow
Only as far as i seek can i go
Only as deep as i look can i see
Only as much as i dream can i be

I saw that, but wasnt sure if others would be interested. I might be wrong. :)

Doubt most women would call foul if Irons patted their behinds.

Always nice to see a liberty-minded celebrity; they are so rare. We should make a list.

Penn Jillette
Ted Nugent...

Another one

Gary Oldman

Ted Nugent is a

Ted Nugent is a neo-con...scared of all brown people
Penn Jillette did a 1/2 hour show on the benifits of vaccinations and how parents who don't vaccinate their children are assholes.
Jeremy Irons, in what he said, was correct thinking.
