Actors paid to make political statements and paid to make opposite statements !!

Classic Hegelian Dialectic at work 😵‍💫

Feigned anger - Feigned outrage - Feigned kitten brushing and puppy petting 😵‍💫

The Hollywood Complex worth Billions of $$ 😵‍💫



I get it, blame the media for all of societies ills; when no one is forcing anyone to watch anything. Buy it, or pass it up, your choice.

It's free market capitalism. Entertainment is a product in the marketplace, just like toothpaste & McDonalds... and And yes it's worth billions; I feel blessed to get a small slice. Even ATS is a part of media presentation, yet here you are.

I am a coproducer on a project about the way Covid is destroying families. I hope people watch it, but no one is forcing you too.


🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣your bull# is exposed

I'm a SAG/AFTRA union actor, as well as IATSE.. And if I want to make political statements about any candidate, legislation, politician.... I will....

1st amendment applies to everyone; celebrity or day player!!

I have worked on the same project as Scarlett Johansson, I like her, but she doesn't speak for me.


With all due respect, I believe she is referring to those members of SAG/AFTRA and IATSE that have a tad bit higher profile.


I have no profile as a bitpart dayplayer. But should "high profile" actors be censored and not allowed to express their political opinion just because they are well known. I have worked with Clint Eastwood and he has my utmost respect but I reject his politics, still he has everyright to express his conservativism as Scarlet Jo has a right to express her BS.

What is it about the 1st amendment that is so hard to understand?



She isn't saying they should be censored, she is saying they have no special knowledge or intelligence and their comment s shouldn't carry more weight yet they do in today's backassward society.

Nothing hard to understand about the 1st amendment nor the 2nd, for that matter. Essentially she is just stating her opinion you know free speech.

Sort of like how you mention your SAG memberships in posts like it carries more weight.

I don't want to hear any political viewpoints from an actor, with the possible exception of Vic Tayback, who played "Mel" on the sitcom "Alice".



Hear Hear... here.

1973


My personal favorite...



Back on subject.
Disney owns Scarlett Johansson.

I just think it’s very telling that after the lies and falsehoods spewing from Hollywood throughout the last administration we now hear ZERO political opinions from those losers

I wonder why that is? Does it have anything at all to do with the fact that the new administration is everything they falsely accused the last one of being and not a single person among them actually supports the loser in the Whitehouse and the narcissistic vp?

Hollywood is failing, and it has NOTHING to do with the China virus

Theater revenue has tanked because of the pandemic, but it's a digital global market now. The entertainment biz is cranking.
Netflix just put a Billion into expansion here in Tamalewood. You don't invest in a failing industry.

I think the point was that they aren't obligated to. As in you sure can if you want, but there is no problem if you don't as well.

You're free to, but keep in mind, you're just a visual toy in a 2D story for people. In other words, people into some actor or another are generally in it for the amusement only, not their personal "Oh, I can haz stupid opinions, too!" crap. Yeah, you can. But they ring hollow, because you're not a person espousing politics to me, you're something on a screen. Period.

It isn't just actors, anyone with an audience that will generally follow what they say willfully and without hesitation are just as bad as actors spouting Political nonsense!

How about we start thinking for ourselves and stop letting Actors, Musicians, News anchors, Pundits and Grifters do it for us?

That would be the day!

Conservative actors like Clint Eastwood and other GOP actors or just libs.

Maybe you should elaborate as you stated Clint Eastwood in the present tense.
I hate to be the one to break the bad news to you , but Clint Eastwood passed away some time ago.

Uh, no, Eastwood did not die some time ago, he's been rather busy for a man of 90, in fact.

Reagan was an actor, and Trump has a lengthy IMDb page, and Arnold was governor.

Politicians act in front of the public all the time.

However, when an actor/actress is promoting a movie that is about to be released in an explosive political climate maybe it's best they take the 5th on political opinions, the chance of making either their employer mad or the fan base they are catering too seems it be extremely high these days.

Maybe she changed for good. Nobody is perfect.



She's a spoiled Hollywood elitist moron who thinks she can and should preach to the poors and the plebs how they should see the world.

Even did a whole PSA about it with the rest of the Marvel universe cast.

I don't care that she has opposite political views. But I certainly don't think she has changed in her pursuit of hypocrisy in the service of her political inclinations.

Edit:

I mean, listen to what she's actually saying. She's saying that her stupid ass opinions are so in demand that she feels compelled to tell the world how it is unfair that everyone wants her asinine opinions.

She's egotistical and so full of herself that she actually thinks her opinions carry that much weight. She isn't denouncing the idea of celebrity influence in political discourse, she's fully injecting herself into it as though she's a nucleus of political thought.

Perhaps you should notify Clint. I was background for him on this one.
