    Silence on Antisemitism, Regrets Wearing a Cross on ‘The Morning Show’: Why Can’t It Be a Star of David?Julianna Margulies is speaking out against Hollywood for staying silent on antisemitism amid the Israel-Hamas war. The Emmy-winning actor attended the Variety Hollywood & Antisemitism Summit, presented by The Margaret & Daniel Loeb Foundation and Shine A Light, and said she is continually asking herself why many major Hollywood stars are not speaking out in support of Jewish people. Margulies added that she’s “disheartened” by the silence, and she’s “trying to understand and work around why every single person in our industry...

    The Russia/Ukraine conflict could soon be coming to an end because actor Sean Penn (you remember him as Jeff Spicoli in Fast Times at Ridgemont High) says he’s thinking about “taking up arms” against Russia. “Oh, gnarly!” Penn has been in Ukraine filming a documentary and expressed his support for Ukraine and desire to fight on its behalf in an interview with Hollywood Authentic. “The only possible reason for me staying in Ukraine longer last time would’ve been for me to be holding a rifle, probably without body armour,” Penn said. “Because as a foreigner, you would want to give...

    Ukraine has been asking for more fighters since the war started, but the US refused to support a deal that could have seen Poland supply 28 MiG-29s, a Russian-made jet of the type its remaining pilots are used to flying. Washington was concerned that supplying fighter jets could be deemed escalatory by a nuclear-armed Russia. Despite the refusals, Ukraine continues to press its case, and overnight its air force tweeted “the greatest need is for fighter jets” and asked specifically for F-15s and F-16s, whose original designs date back to the 1960s and 1970s, which it said its pilots could...

    Oscar winners are almost seven times more likely to suffer from mental health and addiction issues than other people. Analysis by Paracelsus Recovery, a clinic that has treated dozens of celebrities, said ‘fame should come with a health warning’ after it emerged that two-thirds of actors who have won Academy Awards over the past 30 years experienced disorders. Of the 60 performers who won either the Best Actor or Best Actress gong since 1992, 41 have suffered from a mental health issue – with depression, anxiety and substance abuse the most common problems.

    "Save the gays." Under this overwrought "narrative," poor old Zelensky, with actual bombs coming down on him, didn't stand a chance. The Nielsen ratings aren't expected to come out until tomorrow, but that doesn't sound like a formula for retaining or regaining audience viewership which was the supposed aim of the ceremony this year. The Awards viewership was reportedly down to 9.85 million or 10.4 million viewers as of 2021, which represented a 50% drop from the year earlier, and severely lower than the 55.2 million viewership of 1998 when Titanic was winning the Best Picture. By keeping the wokesterism...

    Actor and director Sean Penn said Saturday that if the Academy Awards planners said no to a virtual appearance by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, people should consider boycotting the awards show altogether. During an appearance with CNN’s Jim Acosta, Penn — who is currently in Warsaw, Poland — said that if producers turned down the chance to have Zelensky appear, it would be “the most obscene moment in all of Hollywood history,” and he promised to “smelt” his own Oscars in public if that was what it took to drive the point home.

Acosta said, “The Oscars are tomorrow night. Do you want to see President Zelensky speak at the Oscars via some sort of video link? How do you think the ceremony, how the event should recognize what is happening in Ukraine? What would you say, I guess, if you were there up on stage?”

  • Sean Penn: “Cowardly” Men Are Surrendering Their Masculinity

    Actor Sean Penn has commented on the perilous state of masculinity in the west, remarking that men shouldn’t have to become ‘feminized’ in order to show respect for women. The movie star made the comments during a sit down interview with The Independent. Penn was quizzed on a previous statement in which he asserted, “I don’t think that being a brute or having insensitivity or disrespect for women has anything to do with masculinity, or ever did. But I don’t think that [in order] to be fair to women, we should become them.” Asked to explain that comment, Penn responded,...

    Actor Sean Penn is no champion of the conservative movement and there’s a good chance he never will be. But he does appear to agree with many of his political opposites when it comes to traditional gender roles. The “Mystic River” alum is unhappy with men becoming more feminine and wishes the trend would reverse. “I am in the club that believes that men in American culture have become wildly feminized,” Penn told UK-based inews.co while promoting his new movie, “Flag Day.” “I don’t think that being a brute or having insensitivity or disrespect for women is anything to do...

In January, two people claiming to work for the Community Organized Relief Effort, or CORE, challenged the company line in the comments section of a New York Times article about a vaccination drive at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles. One of the alleged workers - whose identities have not been verified - complained about 18 hour work days and a lack of...
