respect for Bruce

May 21, 2007 by Saar Drimer


For me, he just stepped out of the festering Hollywood swamp by saying something intelligent about his own, and fellow actors’, intelligence and cerebral capacity.

BRUCE WILLIS is fed up with listening to outspoken actors – and believes their opinion shouldn’t mean “jack shit” to the general public. The Die Hard star understands some of his colleagues want to do good for various causes, but wishes others would keep their thoughts to themselves. He says, “I don’t think my opinion means jack shit, because I’m an actor. “Why do actors think their opinions mean more because you act? You just caught a break as an actor. There are hundreds – thousands – of actors who are just as good as I am, and probably better. “Have you heard anything useful come out of an actor’s mouth lately?” He adds, “Although I liked George Clooney’s documentary on Darfur.”

(emphasis mine)

I should add that acting is not exactly a prerequisite for, or the strong side of, the “actors” Willis is talking about; you just have to be good looking and know who to sleep with, and when… which, I suppose, requires some talent, I’ll give them that.

Damn it, I love starting my day with a good rant! ;)

    Isn’t it funny that a rant like this from Bruce is a reason why the rant might not apply to him as much as others. A little bit of perspective and candor can go a long way.
