You are so insane! You didn't even watch his speech and it's going to make you stop going to his movies? He's like the greatest American actor of his generation. Reading your posts makes my eyes itch. And Mia Farrow, seriously? Dude went to effing Iraq and paid to put his observations in newspapers nationwide. Yes, that's narcissistic, but it certainly isn't cowardly. Charlie Rose, my foot.
lol. Isn't Shirley Maclaine the one who said, "I deserve this"? BRAVERY! HUMILITY!
Oh, there are plenty of humble actors. Jeffrey Wright, one of the best actors working today, is perfectly humble -- even shy.Personally, I think it's shameful for actors to exploit major social issues for their art if they don't actually care. If you're in a movie about cancer, you should reach out to families affected by cancer and advocate for better healthcare and medical research. If you're in a movie about a real person who fought for gay rights, you should carry forward his legacy. In any case, I certainly can't understand why you care what someone says during an Oscars acceptance speech. It's not some kind of solemn occasion or spiritual moment; it's an awards ceremony.
I understand (a) that you have a bizarre preoccupation with the content of his 45-second speech and/or (b) that you didn't like it when he said that you were on the wrong side of history.
