    Clearly you didn't have a settled enough life so may you find it now. RIP.
    I started on the first page of this thread and waited until I got a response like yours . . . it took one page. I haven't read any further . . . I just wanted to let you know . . . you have reinforced my opinion that our nation is seriously behind in all forms of education. Money don't matter . . . success don't matter . . . people's standing in a caste society has no matter . . . addiction doesn't have boundaries. It is truly a disease, and if you think the "Posh Life" makes life easier than you are an #$#@&**.

    If the cuss words work for him, then they should be able to apply to you without some kind of report to the sensors. I will now read the rest of the thread . . . I wanted to state this before I went any further.

    that was a big part of the reason i didn't take vicodin when had some dental work done a few years ago. my brain has no idea what opiates are like, and i would like to keep it that way for as long as possible.

    RIP to a great actor.

If a director or an editor or some other position screws up their aspect of a media presentation, it'll still be the actor usually that takes the blame....

    I do agree that they should have the resource to get and keep their **** together, but to look at it as somehow saying that a posh life (ie materialistically satisfying) is all a person needs to be happy and well adjusted is a bit narrow minded.
    That's true about not knowing about having work from one shoot to the next but he was way beyond that concern when he started landing all the awards. He could write his own ticket. Which is why he could easily bounce in and out of independent films and back to a HUGE roll with no problem. IMO, these people are lifted up on the shoulders of the masses. They are basically like America's royalty. So therefore they kind of owe it to the people to be aware that the people are holding them up and looking up to them.

    Well good for you. It is an easy posh life by comparison to living the blue collar life for your whole life. I know plenty of people who had addiction problems and the ones who lived basically beat it by growing the hell up.

    Yep, and sometimes they don't . . . they just die . . . it ain't about growing up. Everyone has a different bottom. Sometimes . . . the disease is just so bad, you die. So, while you RIP the arsehole . . . I'll think about his kids. I'm as blue collar, rednecked and white haired as you can get (SKYNYRD). The grass is always greener over the septic tank (BOMBECK). I am sorry you wish for more and can't achieve it . . . that doesn't mean a fake RIP is necessary. If it makes you feel better about yourself, more power(Rob) to you.

    It's not a fake RIP. You can play the fake high-horse martyr all you want. I really really liked this guy's work. It was awesome. His range seemed without limits. It just infuriates me to have seen him piss it all away for a high.
