Hollywood director demeans teenage cancer-survivors’ looks to take shot at Republicans

You own this piece of scum libtards.

From Washington Times: Hollywood producer-director Joss Whedon judged a group of teenage cancer survivors according to their (lack of) sexual attractiveness in order to take a shot at Republicans.

Mr. Whedon tweeted out a picture of House Speaker Paul D. Ryan meeting some teenagers and said they didn’t measure up in the attractiveness department.

“Tonight on White House Wife Hunt, Donny makes host P. Ryan give 2 more contestants the ‘Not a 10’ card,” tweeted Mr. Whedon, best known as the creator of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Firefly” and other TV shows and as the director of two “Avengers” movies.

According to Mr. Ryan, who had tweeted out the same picture, the girls were Wisconsin teenagers who “shared some powerful stories with me about their fight against childhood cancer.”

Numerous users on Twitter quickly pounced on Mr. Whedon’s remarks about the girls’ looks, calling them cruel, sexist and more. “The epitome of misogyny right here. Take a bow, bro,: said female Twitter user “Grace Under Pressure.”

Joss has since deleted the tweet and offered some lame “apology:” “So I tweeted something that inadvertently offended everyone except the people I was trying to offend. I’m sorry. I’ll be quiet for a bit.”

What a deplorable man.

Anne Hathaway Admits to ‘Internalized Misogyny’ Working With Female Directors

Hathaway is a proggie. Shocker, not.

Via The Wrap: Anne Hathaway’s latest film, “Colossal,” has been praised for its exploration of how women often face misogynist behavior from men who use their supposed generosity to get what they want.

While talking the film with ABC News, Hathaway talked about another kind of misogyny she’s dealt with in her career: the kind she internalized against female directors.

When asked to name a movie she learned the most from, Hathaway picked the 2011 drama “One Day,” directed by Lone Scherfig. She said that she didn’t trust Scherfig during filming as much as she should have, and to this day that still bothers her.

“I am to this day scared that the reason I didn’t trust her the way I trust some of the other directors I work with is because she’s a woman,” she said. “I hope people understand that it’s hard to admit.”

Hathaway went on to explain that in hindsight, she thinks she didn’t give Scherfig what she needed for the film because she was “resisting her on some level.” She says her reflection on filming “One Day” has impacted how she looks at future films directed by women.

“When I get a script, when I see a first film directed by a woman, I have in the past focused on what was wrong with it,” Hathaway said. “And when I see a first film directed by a man, I focus on what’s right with it. I focus on where he could go with the next one, and I focus on where she failed to go.

“I can only acknowledge that I’ve done that and I don’t want to do that anymore … I, before I realized this, had actively tried to work with female directors,” she continued. “And I still had this mindset buried in there somewhere.”

Hathaway said she planned to call up Scherfig after the interview to discuss her remarks. Scherfig, who directed the Best Picture-nominated film “An Education” in 2009, is currently in pre-production on her next project, “Secrets from the Russian Tea Room.”

“I’ve never apologized to her about it,” Hathaway said. “It wasn’t an issue of professionalism, it wasn’t an issue of … nothing. I hold her in such a dear place in my heart and I think she does for me too.”

Hathaway can be seen costarring with Jason Sudeikis in “Colossal,” which is now playing in select theaters.

Actor Patrick Stewart reveals he’s becoming an American citizen so he can ‘fight and oppose’ Donald Trump

patrick-stewart

Most become American citizens for a better life, freedom, opportunities, and love of the country. Bitter and rich liberals, not so much.

From Daily Mail: Patrick Stewart has revealed he is applying for US citizenship so he can ‘fight and oppose’ Donald Trump. The Star Trek actor, 76, said on Thursday that getting an American passport ‘might be the only good thing as the result of this election’.

The legendary thespian – who was born in West Yorkshire but lives in Brooklyn – added that he and his wife went to Washington last month to visit friends and ask them what they could do about the President.

Speaking on The View, he explained: ‘I want to be an American, too.  All of my friends in Washington said: “There is one thing you can do. Fight, fight; oppose, oppose.” But I can’t do it because I’m not a citizen.’

Sir Patrick, who lives in Brooklyn with his third wife Sunny Ozell, admitted that as a couple they had ‘three separate dinners’ with their ‘Washington insider’ friends to work out ‘what we could do’ about Trump.

He was also questioned about a Tweet he posed on February 10 in which he wrote: ‘Had the worst sleep of my life last night. But I was sleeping less than 300 yds from where Donald Trump sleeps. Could there be a connection?’ Stewart explained that he posted the Tweet after the third dinner with friends, and insisted it was ‘a fairly innocent Tweet’ that ‘didn’t directly insult the President’.

Stewart has lived on and off in the United States since securing the legendary Star Trek role of Jean-Luc Picard in the 1980s.  The legendary thespian was born in West Yorkshire but has lived in Brooklyn with his wife Sunny Ozell since 2012. He has lived in Brooklyn since 2012 with musician Ozell – who he married in 2013 after five years together.

The actor previously took aim at Trump on social media last March, when he Tweeted a photo of a man carrying a sign that read: ‘Give me a dollar or I vote for Trump.’

He wrote alongside the shot: ‘Made me forget the humidity for a moment. Worth 5 bucks.’

He also claimed Trump couldn’t be taken ‘seriously’ due to his ‘antics’ in an interview with Vice last May.  ‘Well, of course, we had no idea that Dreadful Trump would be up to these antics that he is up to now,’ he told the website. ‘And I call them ‘antics’ because how could they possibly be taken seriously.’

Stewart reprises his role as X-Men founder Professor X in the Wolverine tale, Logan, which opens on Friday. He revealed he’ll be leaving the X-Men franchise after Logan earlier this month.

Matt Damon’s ‘The Great Wall’ to Lose $75 Million

matt-damon

Too bad, so sad…

From Hollywood Reporter: The collapse of The Great Wall at the domestic box office (it has made $34.8 million in North America) has iced any notion of a significant future for U.S.-China co-productions. The movie likely will end up with losses of more than $75 million, sources say, and Universal Pictures will be on the hook for at least $10 million.

The studio funded about 25 percent of the film’s $150 million production budget, the rest coming in equal parts from Legendary Entertainment, China Film Group and Le Vision Pictures. But Universal also covered Wall’s global marketing expenses, conservatively estimated at $80 million-plus. The film earned $171 million in China (a disappointment) and is expected to top out at about $320 million globally. That’s way less than investors had anticipated for the biggest-ever U.S.-China co-production. “The fusion of the No. 1 and No. 2 movie markets in the world will eventually happen, but it is a misfire, domestically speaking,” says box-office analyst Jeff Bock. Adds one Hollywood executive who has dealt extensively with China, “There’s no question but that it’s a failure.”

The good news for Universal is that its share of this failure will be relatively modest. The studio gets to collect a roughly 10 percent distribution fee from all theatrical revenue (between 40 percent and 50 percent of the total box office), and box-office rentals likely will recoup much, if not all, of its marketing outlay before other investors dip into whatever money is left to cut into production costs. The four partners will split any further theatrical income equally.

If the movie generates hoped-for ancillary revenue (including $20 million from domestic home entertainment and as much as $40 million from international home entertainment, with $25 million to $30 million from TV — admittedly, a best-case scenario), that will further stanch the red ink.

An Angry Libtard: ‘Avengers’ director Joss Whedon calls Ivanka Trump a dog

joss-whedon

These lefties better seek help. Otherwise they are in for a LOOOOOONG four years.

From NY Post: “Avengers” director Joss Whedon went after President Trump‘s daughter Ivanka Trump, likening her to a Pekingese dog, and called her husband Jared Kushner a “Voldemort in training.”

The filmmaker tweeted alongside a picture of Kushner, “Hey, keep your eyes on this f–king prize too. He’s a Voldemort in training, & unlike the Pekingese he married under, can play the long game.”

Fans immediately called out the self-proclaimed feminist Whedon for comparing Ivanka Trump to a breed of small, yappy dogs.

Whedon’s tweet comes not long after he slammed Nicole Kidman for urging people to support the president and accept the election results. He shared a picture of Kidman next to a Lady Penelope doll to make fun of her “plastic” appearance.

He also brought things to a new level when he took to Twitter earlier this month with a profane, violent message about House Speaker Paul Ryan.

“Violence solves nothing. I want a rhino to f–k @SpeakerRyan to death with its horn because it’s FUNNY, not because he’s a #GOPmurderbro,” Whedon, best known for creating “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Firefly” and “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” tweeted.

This is painful. And I’m sure the short film will be just as excruciating as listening to this genious.
