    Hollywood in Toto ^ | 31 Oct 2018 | Christian Toto
    Hollywood's biggest stars are back, begging you to support the Blue Wave. But is anyone watching them? We’re days before another major election, so you know what that means. Hollywood stars shooting celebrity PSAs to boost the proverbial “Blue Wave.” Only the results this time around are far from viral. The star-studded “Save the Day” video, dropped weeks before the 2016 presidential election, drew massive views. Today, the number stands at more than 8 million, a figure likely amassed during that year’s campaign. The clip, directed by Joss Whedon, featured some of Hollywood’s biggest stars. Scarlett Johansson Robert Downey, Jr....

    Happy Groundhog's Day, everyone! I wanted to refocus our attention for a moment on a political ad from the 2016 campaign. Robert Downey Jr. and a bunch of unknowns and has-beens put together an ad in support of Hillary (who is never mentioned) urging people to register so that a dude will appear naked in his next movie. Wow, that's *supposed* to get me motivated? I guess if the target audience are homosexuals and women, this was a good move but, honestly, the ad spends three minutes sending mixed messages about why, exactly, we should care to vote.

    Movie star Robert Downey Jr. has made a shocking revelation and lifted the lid on a major Hollywood pedophile ring that connects powerful Elites "all over the globe".The Iron Man star has gone on the record to expose a huge network of pedophilia, prostitution, and human trafficking that involves a whole host of, what he calls, "sick f*cks".Not only has he named some well known Hollywood celebrities, but he's also ousted one of the most powerful people in America, who he says is a "Rosetta Stone of every perversion from Hwood all over the globe" and provides depraved services for...

    Robert Downey Jr. says that, as a rule, he doesn’t make endorsements in presidential elections — but that didn’t stop the actor from speculating about who his most famous character, Tony Stark/Iron Man, would choose in this year’s contentious race. In an interview with Howard Stern this weekend, Downey Jr. said that Iron Man would cast his vote for Democrat frontrunner Hillary Clinton. “I believe Tony [Stark], being a budding feminist, he would say it’s time to have some feminine energy in the White House,” the actor told Stern on the shock jock’s popular Sirius XM radio show.

    The press tour for the upcoming sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron is grabbing a lot of attention ahead of the film’s North American release, just not the good kind of attention. The latest public relations flub came Friday in the form of what some have deemed a racist statement made by leading man Robert Downey Jr. After storming out of an interview earlier this week with Britain’s Channel 4 News, the legendary actor sat down to again discuss the film, where he made a remark about Oscar-winning Birdman director Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu. The Mexican director has been critical of superhero...

    Iron Man 2, arguably one of the most anticipated movies of the summer, opens next week. And with its opening, the summer blockbuster season starts in earnest. And I was so excited, I took a relatively long trip to see this movie early. And what a way to start off the movie season.

    CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. — Being an actor is nothing like being a Marine. For an actor, even a 30-minute helicopter ride from Burbank to Camp Pendleton, just north of San Diego, can seem daunting.Before boarding a chopper for a special screening of Tropic Thunder at the base, star Robert Downey Jr. confessed: "I'm hoping the fact that I might puke right now is actually going to have the reverse effect, and that I'll suddenly be steady and calm by being in a helicopter."Downey, along with co-stars Ben Stiller and Jack Black, landed safely. "It was pretty tame, actually," Stiller said...

    If you’re one of the few conservatives in Hollywood, you might be used to keeping your head down — and your politics to yourself — and hoping for the best. There are some signs that things are looking up for Hollywood conservatives, however. Revered playwright and screenwriter David Mamet recently published a sprawling essay in the Village Voice explaining, “Why I Am No Longer a ‘Brain-Dead Liberal.’” And Robert Downey Jr., the formerly troubled actor turned smash success with the summer blockbuster Iron Man, recently outed himself as, well, something other than a liberal. “I have a really interesting political...
  • Race row as actor Robert Downey Jr 'blacks up' for new film

    Actor Robert Downey Jr has in the past been applauded for his edgy roles. But his latest may be a step too far - as the actor dons make-up to play a rather convincing looking black man in a new Hollywood film starring comic actor Ben Stiller. In a still from film Tropic Thunder, Downey Jnr is sandwiched between Ben Stiller, and a blonde Jack Black. Controversial: Actor Robert Downey Jr is virtually unrecognisble seen here sandwiched between actors Jack Black, left, and Ben Stiller, in an image from new film Tropic Thunder in which he wore a wig and...

    To Sonoma County residents, Joshua Schwartz is the frightening assailant accused of trying to abduct a 9-year-old girl from her Roseland home and stabbing her mother with a pair of scissors when she tried to intervene. But those who know Schwartz describe a talented artist whose genius disintegrated in the face of mental illness. "It's a funny thing with creativity," said Bob Burden, a well-known Hollywood cartoonist who admired Schwartz's work so much that he considered collaborating with him. "There are a lot of people who are unbalanced who have it all. It's sad when that interferes with other people's...

    LOS ANGELES, Nov. 15 — There is no question as to which is the most exclusive penthouse apartment in the City of Angels. Among the amenities there are soaps, conditioners, razors. A continental breakfast is offered; a picnic-style lunch and a warm beefsteak dinner. The pillows are feather, the complimentary slippers are canvas, the bed garments orange. There is a library and plenty of solitude. The suite occupies a corner lot, the view is unique and security is among the best in town. The bellhops dress in green and wear white gloves. All this at the reasonable rate of $53.45...
