Regarding "The Meryl comment".
Apparently Lindsay Lohan started the Twitter outrage, by tearing Jennifer a new asshole.
Who the fuck even knows the lines to THE FIRST WIVES CLUB by heart anyway? Just admit it was a lame joke that flopped.
I do find it amusing that Streep hasn't replied, however.
I don't understand why this is in any way controversial.
It's not, R1. But anything is better than discussing the real problems we are facing in this country.
Lohan must be soooo jealous.
You mean like contributing fifty posts to the I hate Anne Hathaway thread R2?
I like it, that while explaining the quote, she is not apologetic at all. She actually called Lohan and others, who misunderstood it, idiots.
Why isn't Congress investigating this OUTRAGE?
I agree R5. J-Law is pretty tough, I think.
Apparently OP doesn't realise it's 2013 and Lohan is now a hooker while Lawrence is getting the Oscar noms than Lindsay thought she'd get.
You would have to be a moron to have taken Lawrence's comment seriously. She even said something like, "But all joking aside..." after she said it. Lohan is pure attention whore garbage at this point.
"I do find it amusing that Streep hasn't replied, however."
Why would she bother? She's not the sort to get into public tit-for-tats.
Besides, she's adult enough to know a joke when she hears one.
Lohan is dumber than Paris Hilton. She shouldn't even have Twitter "privileges."
Storm in a tea cup.
The joke was cute, she was paying homage to a legend, and nobody should be upset about this. Meryl certainly isn't.
Now as for Ann...
Lindsay Lohan is jealous because JL has talent, a career and isn't a crackhead. She's starting to remind me an awful lot of Sarah Palin. She'll say anything for attention and her career is over.

who gives a shit what that junkie loser has to say?
I forgive Jennifer. Life is tough enough for fat girls without having to suffer the wraith of the greatest actress ever.
Isn't there a new Razzie category,worst actress in a TV movie? Or something even worse..... Well Ms Hohan you've just scored yourself a lifetime achievement ward!
"I'm not on Twitter. But Twitter is very upset."
Now there's a truth for the ages.
The joke flopped; however, Lindsay shouldn't be getting all self-righteous and sanctimonious.
Lindsay dear, let it go and take the high road. You have far greater issues about which to worry concerning your own image and career.

She is taking the high road. She just did a FOUR WAY SEX SCENE in her newest flop of a movie, The Canyons
OP Streep has the flu and she is marvelous in it.
I thought the joke was cute, it wasn't a flop. I loved it on Letterman when she said, "I thought about making a public statement like, 'Hey idiots, it's a joke...'" She's funny.
I was sitting in the bowl, waiting for her to close the lid so I could start chewing, so naturally I knew Meryl wasn't upset about it. You can smell it when she's upset - sort of meaty.
It was obviously a joke and some idiots in the media needed a story. Why is this getting any play?
She needs no "damage control."
THe joke is on Lohan. She'll do anything to pretend she's relevant.
I think the media would have taken it more serious and used the opportunity to give Jennifer a mean spoiled bitch reputation if it weren't for Lindsay Lohan leading the 'how dare you to disrespect Merryl?' mob. Nobody in the media wants to agree or side with Lindsay Lohan in anything.
Is she one of my daughters? It is getting so confusing. How many do I have now?
The studios badly need someone to fill Julia Roberts' shoes. Lawrence is a very credible contender. They're not about to trash a potential money machine.
(I like Lawrence a lot and think she's the real thing, btw.)

The same thing happened to Sally Field with the "You like me, you really like me" thing. At the end of Norma Rae, Ron Lieberman says a bunch of gushing things about her and she responds "Reuben, I think you like me!" That's what she was referencing with the "like me" stuff, but of course most people didn't realize it. It was the same with Lawrence, so what it's a line from a movie, most people don't remember it and a lot of people never saw that movie in the first place.
Meryl's own daughter didn't even get the joke.
And then to be annoyed about it on Letterman. Get a grip, dear. Like the center of the universe is in tune with your inner thinking.
Is she aspiring to become another Gwyneth?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
The old site will remain around while things settle down but will go away fairly soon as we consolidate everything to the one "official" site.
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
