#WarOnWomen: Actor Jim Carrey shares horrible painting of Sarah Sanders

Jim Carrey’s “art”

Carey doing his best to empower women through empathy.

From Fox News: Jim Carrey faced swift backlash Sunday after the actor tweeted a painting that apparently showed White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders in a terrifyingly garish light.

“This is the portrait of a so-called Christian whose only purpose in life is to lie for the wicked. Monstrous!” Carrey wrote in his tweet accompanying the portrait Saturday.

Though Carrey didn’t mention Sanders by name, many Twitter users knew right away who it was, The Wrap reported.

But not all on Twitter were amused. “James Woods, do you have a comment about Jim Carrey and the insulting portrait he has presented of Sarah Sanders?” tonguepiercer wrote.

Michael Gatza tweeted: “What a disgraceful thing to do. Jim Carrey Paints Sarah Huckabee Sanders – It’s Not a Pretty Picture.”

Twitter user Delaine Gordon B added: “This is just one more example of how Hollyweird empowers women! #JimCarrey is just doing his portion, right Jim? He’s a has been!!”

Last month, Carrey tweeted the image of an original painting depicting a seemingly dead schoolgirl sprawled out on the American flag soaked in blood, following the school shooting in Parkland, Fla.

The “Ace Ventura” star has been taking a break from films to devote more time to painting.

He told a magazine last year that creating political art isn’t a new concept for him.

Matt Damon reportedly moving to Australia to get away from President Trump

Hey Matt, can you take some of your buddies with you?

From Yahoo: Matt Damon and his family are reportedly moving to Australia to get away from Donald Trump.

Page Six reported on Thursday that the actor has purchased a property in Byron Bay, New South Wales and has spread word of his imminent move to his close friends.

“Matt’s been telling friends and colleagues in Hollywood that he’s moving the family to Australia,” a source told the outlet, adding that the move is because of his fundamental disagreement with President Trump’s policies.

“Matt’s saying the move will not impact his work — as he will travel to wherever his projects are shooting,” the source explained. “He’s also telling friends he wants to have a safe place to raise his kids.”

It’s unclear whether Damon and his family will live in Australia full-time or how long they plan on staying. The Oscar-winning screenwriter has four children with wife Luciana Barroso: Isabella, 11, Gia, 9, and Stella, 7, as well as daughter Alexia Barroso, 18, whose biological father is Luciana’s ex-husband.

According to Sydney’s Sunday Telgraph, Damon’s newly-purchased land in Australia is directly next door to fellow “Thor: Ragnarok” actor Chris Hemsworth.

As Page Six notes, Damon has no announced projects in the works, other than producing an adaptation of “Agatha Christie’s “Witness for the Prosecution,” which still star pal Ben Affleck, and his cameo in the upcoming all-female “Ocean’s 11” spinoff film, “Ocean’s 8.”

Damon and Affleck made headlines earlier in the week when it was announced that they would support inclusion riders in all future deals.

Damon has not yet responded to reports that he’s moving to Australia.


Modern Family TV stars call for “common sense” gun laws and slam the NRA

Yet they use guns for “fun” in their TV show.


From Daily Mail: The cast of Modern Family has put its support behind young protesters calling for a change to gun laws in the wake of the Parkland massacre.

In a video which some of the stars shared on Instagram on Thursday, the cast all call for an end to gun violence and slam lawmakers for ‘putting the interests of the NRA ahead of what’s best for our children’.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Sofia Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ariel Winter, Ed O’Neill, Eric Stonestreet, Nolan Gould and Ty Burrell all appear in the short clip.

‘We send our condolences and support to the people of Parkland,’ said Tyler Ferguson, who plays Mitchell Pritchett, at the beginning.  He is followed by Hyland who extends their well wishes to ‘people everywhere fighting for common sense gun laws.’

Julie Bowen, aka Claire Dunphy, follows. ‘Your bravery and resolve in response to this senseless tragedy inspires us and gives us hope,’ she said.

She is followed by her onscreen father Ed O’Neill who carries on her thought.  ‘That someday our lawmakers will stop putting the interests of the NRA,’ he said, leading to his on-screen wife, Sofia Vergara, who chimed in: ‘Ahead of what’s best for our children.’

Hyland carries on: ‘You’ve shown young people, you’ve shown everyone it is not enough to just like post and retweet.’

‘We all need to get involved.’

Ariel Winter, her onscreen sister, picks up the script there, saying: ‘And we all have to register to vote.’

Tyler Ferguson, Bowen, Vergara and Ty Burrell continue in sequence.  ‘Too many lives have been lost. Too many excuses have been made. So thank you for taking on this challenge,’ they say in order.

The cast then vowed to join students from Stoneman Douglas High School as they take to the streets of Washington DC on March 24 at the March for Our Lives protest against gun laws. 

‘We will be right there by your side as Americans take to the streets on March 24,’ O’Neill said.  Eric Stonestreet, who plays Tyler Ferguson’s on-screen husband, added: ‘Making our voices heard at the March for Our Lives.’

Tyler Ferguson ended the impassioned video with: ‘On behalf of families everywhere,’ leading to a chorus of the cast saying: ‘Never again.’

Sharing the video on Instagram, Hyland wrote: ‘A message from me and my modern family to march for our lives on March 24. Support Everytown, Moms Demand and the safety of our future.’

They asked followers to support their efforts by donating to Everytown and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.

They are the latest celebrities to vow to attend the march. George and Amal Clooney say they will be there with their young twins Ella and Alexander. The couple have also donated $500,00 to the event as has Oprah, Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg.


Don’t waste your money: Oprah Winfrey’s new movie, “A Wrinkle in Time,” hammered by critics

oprah winfrey wrinkle in time

Oprah Winfrey stars in a new movie (opened 3/9/18), A Wrinkle in Time, which critics are lambasting. About the movie:

“A Wrinkle in Time is a 2018 American science fantasy adventure film directed by Ava DuVernay from a screenplay by Jennifer Lee, based on the 1962 novel of the same name by Madeleine L’Engle. The film stars Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Peña, Storm Reid, Zach Galifianakis, and Chris Pine, and follows a young girl who, with the help of three astral travelers, sets off on a quest to find her father, who went missing after discovering a new planet.”

According to Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 42% based on 97 reviews and an average rating of 5.2/10. Some of the reviews:

  • A socially progressive viewpoint, diverse casting and crew members, positive role models and hopeful upbeat messages are one thing, but a good time at the movies is another thing entirely. The movie isn’t scary, suspenseful, gripping in the least.”
  • “But this movie relied so heavily on the glinting plastic toolbox of CGI that the magic just never arrived. The kid in me left the theater sadly disappointed.
  • “The director not only fails to capture the childlike wonder of A Wrinkle in Time; she also reveals herself to be a terrible director of children.”
  • “It’s impossible to not cheer for the message of A Wrinkle in Time-But those messages should be conveyed organically, through plot and character. Here, they have all the subtlety of a promoted tweet.”
  • “Well-intentioned, well-acted, but a bit of a mess.”


Another Hollyweird movie I won’t be seeing.


Suck it, Hollyweird: 2018 Oscar ratings down double digits; record all-time low


Officially down 20 percent from last year. And a record all-time low in viewership numbers.


From Deadline: It was an Oscar do-over last night for host Jimmy Kimmel, producers Mike De Luca and Jennifer Todd and Best Picture presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. Following last year’s Envelopegate, which led to Beatty and Dunaway inadvertently announcing a wrong Best Picture winner, the quartet’s second go-around went without a hitch.

The good news did not carry over to ratings for the 90th Academy Awards, which (correctly) crowned The Shape of Water as Best Picture. Last night’s ceremony, which aired live from 8 PM – 11:54 PM EST, drew a 18.9 Live+Same Day rating in the metered market households. That was off 16% from last year’s 22.4 rating, which was a nine-year low.The 18.9 appears to be an all-time low for the Oscars, well below the previous low ratings point, logged with the 2008 telecast (21.9), hosted by Jon Stewart, when No Country For Old Men won Best Picture.

That, despite the fast that The Shape of Water was the the highest-grossing Best Picture winner in five years.

Last year, the 22.4 metered market rating translated to 32.9 million viewers  — also a nine-year low — and a 9.1 rating among adults 18-49. We will update with viewership and demo numbers when they become available later today.

The best that Hollywood’s big night has done in the first round of ratings over the past decade-plus was back in 2005. That show, hosted by Chris Rock, got a 30.1 metered market households. Clint Eastwood’s Million Dollar Baby won Best Picture that year, and the broadcast went on to score 42.1 million viewers in the final number. With 12 Years a Slave winning Best Picture, the 2014 Oscars fronted by Ellen DeGeneres (27.9 metered market HH rating) drew the biggest overall audience of the 21st century, with 43.7 million tuning in.


Just in time for the Oscars tonight: “The award for the biggest pedophile goes to…”

sabo hollywood billboard

From Hollywood Reporter: With a nod to the Oscar-nominated Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, conservative street artist Sabo has hijacked three billboards in Hollywood to attack the entertainment industry for allegedly shielding pedophiles.

Reminiscent of the signage in the Martin McDonagh film, which is up for seven Oscars including best picture, with black text on a field of red, three consecutive billboards in Hollywood sprang up Wednesday, each calling out the industry.

“And the Oscar for biggest pedophile goes to …” reads one sign.

Another says, “We all knew and still no arrests.”

A third billboard reads: “Name names on stage or shut the hell up!”

Until the artist, who goes by the name Sabo, took over the signage early Wednesday, the billboards were legitimate advertisements. Sabo manufactured fake overlays measuring as large as 48 feet across by 14 feet high and hired a crew of six men to help with installation, he told The Hollywood Reporter.

The first of the three massive signs appeared near the corner of Wilshire Boulevard and La Brea Avenue in Hollywood and another was a few hundred yards north. Still another appeared a few hundred yards from that one, mimicking the arrangement in the film, where three signs appeared in a row alongside a highway.

Sabo has posted faux ads attacking Hollywood on other occasions, but he said he considers the hijacking of three giant billboards on a single day his largest mission yet. The last time he took over a billboard was in November when he altered a sign for The Greatest Showman to make it appear like Sen. Al Franken was grabbing at Zendaya, who starred as a trapeze artist in the movie.

Franken, a former Saturday Night Live actor, has since resigned from the Senate amid allegations that he sexually harassed women, and nearly 100 other men in the entertainment industry also have been publicly accused of sexual misconduct since claims were made against Harvey Weinstein nearly five months ago.

Sabo says his signage is meant to criticize those who allegedly enabled sexual harassment with their silence, and to tell celebrities they should refrain from preaching during their Oscar acceptance speeches — for this one year, at least.
