Barbara Walters. After her disrepectful behavior toward Rosie I can longer stand her. Within a month after Rosie left The View Barbara went on Ryan Seacrest's radio show and said Rosie was always talking about lesbian sex on the show which was an outright lie.%0D %0D Ann Curry. She and the Today Show crew laughed hysterically when they reported Tim Hardaway's comments that he hated gay people and wanted us all dead.%0D %0D Jeff Lewis from Flipping Out. I stopped watching his show after he hired a heterosexual male as his clean up person. Jeff is your typical gay male who worships heterosexual males. Gay people will never be good enough in his eyes, he's treated every gay person around him horribly and cast them aside.

R28 -- I don't get the Jeff Lewis hate. (I mean, yes, he can be a total ass, but not re: what you say I don't think as, if you would have continued watching the show, Jeff hired an openly gay intern/assistant -- Trace, who he later promoted. Plus Ryan was on the show a lot -- even with Ryan's new partner and their daughter -- until he and Lewis had a falling out.

Jeff treats EVERYONE horribly!

Mel Gibson -- I can never again watch any of his movies or anything.

As for Morgan Freeman -- ew! but I am watching him in something now and didn't know about this granddaughter thing -- Lucky Number Slevin -- but I'm watching it cuz of the others in it -- Bruce Willis for one and not really for Freeman.

It's called intelligence.

by Anonymousreply 4106/11/2011

Nah, the true extent of intelligence is critical thinking. So if I reflect on someone's behavior and analyze whether or not it makes sense to then not appreciate their work and I can support my decision with intelligent arguments, well *that's* intelligence! Mel Gibson made bigoted remarks against Jews, gays and women, ranted and raved and never appeared sincerely sorry. He also chose to include made up, inaccurate scenes in Passion of the Christ to carry on the myth that the Jews killed Jesus rather than the fact that it was the Romans. So, I don't have to appreciate Mel Gibson's work, knowing this new information that I now know. I can say I think he's good looking and an excellent actor, but after reflecting on everything he's done, I don't care to see any more of his work, so I can no longer appreciate it when I'm no longer going to see it!

I don't reject an artist reflexively because they're not nice people, but there are certain people like Smell Gibson that I never liked in the first place and now that I know they're jerks just feel like avoiding altogether. With Woody Allen and Roman Polanski, I'm just tired of them. I didn't stop seeing their films after their assholery was revealed to the world, either, but at a certain point--with Allen it was "Deconstructing Harry," and with Polanski it was "Bitter Moon"--I said to myself, "You know what, I just don't feel like another journey into the diseased mind of this sick fuck."

R53 I know what you mean (RE: Mel Gibson.) "The Year of Living Dangerously" was one of my favorite movies, too.

I know it's considered cheesy, but that final scene where he's reunited with Michelle Pheiffer in "Tequila Sunrise" while "Surrender To Me" plays is, I believe one of the most beautiful cinematic moments ever. But, I could never look at it the same.

When all his bigotry came to light, I remember Barbara Walters (on "The View") simply stating something to the effect of "I don't plan to see Mel Gibson movies anymore." That is exactly my position, as well.

Growing up, I was such a huge fan of the rock band The Who. Because of Pete Townshend's arrest a few years back (for kiddy-porn) I can't listen to them or anything he recorded solo. He turns my stomach. I know his defense was that he had all those photos for "research", but c'mon! Sick.

I used to love the TV show Happy Endings until I read an article that said the cast is really clique-y, nasty, and hostile to guest stars on set. I think what separated it from other stuff I've read about celebrities is that I could see how it might be true.

I think the classic example of this, and the one not yet mentioned, is Ike Turner. He recorded the very first rock & roll record ever and was there for the whole scene, but is now only remembered as a wife beater. In fairness, although Tina was petite at 5 feet 4 inches, Ike was not much taller and weighed just 120 pounds while they were together. Casting big hulking Lawrence Fishburne as Ike in that movie about them was the nail in his coffin. It was like watching a Doberman going after a poodle. In reality it was more like a Jack Russell Terrier going after a Poodle.

I get a lot of shit for never having seen Forrest Gump but all my friends know that I won't watch anything Tom Hanks is in. I think he is a smarmy asshole who thinks he's way more important than he actually is. Many years ago when Vlade Divac played for the Lakers and the Arsenio Hall show was still on, Vlade and Tom were Arsenio's guests and I watched because I loved Vlade. Tom was a total condescending prick to him and made fun of his name and his weak English. It really pissed me off and I still dislike Hanks. I did see Philadelphia but no other Hanks flicks after 1991. And don't even get me started on his "rapper" son Chet Haze.
