    I could tell Christian Bale was a homicidal maniac after seeing that movie where he played a homicidal maniac!
    Not even my point. Even when people are acting a part they have a certain way they carry themselves that they can not hide. Maybe I'm good at picking up on these things, but I have never seen an actor or actress hide it. Every part that Christian Bale plays in he handles himself in the exact same way. Pay close attention to his body language and you can see it's the same in every last movie.

    I hope this gives her peace, and understand the courage it took for her to come out in this manner. Some of the hateful posts in this very thread are a testament to how much courage it does indeed take for individuals to stand up for themselves, and openly declare that they are homosexual. Kudos to them; a finger-flick to those who continue to treat homosexuals like second-class citizens.

    You're not suggesting I'm partisan are you? Everyone knows I'm a staunch Independent that never complains about the worst of the right wing on here.

    Do you relate all actors character roles to their true character?
    Natalie Portman is bigger, has a better body, and has a pretty face. She also is a better actress and has a certain charm about her that will last long after her looks give way. I don't think you can compare Ellen Page to Natalie Portman.

    From what I have seen she likes picking parts that involve some sort of mental or physical torment. If she was just picking parts like that every once in a while that would be one thing, but it's pretty consistent that she will pick a part that has one or the other.

    It seems to be turning into a cliché. In the 1980s, I have some memory of drug and alcohol issues being the thing. A washed-up actor or actress could get a lot of press, and possibly jump-start a faltering career, by coming out and announcing that he was recovering from a drug problem.

    Homosexuality is the big thing these days, but it's wearing awfully thin. It's become so common, that I don't know why anyone considers it news anymore.

    What will be next? Celebrities announcing that they cheat on their spouses? That they molest children? That they **** farm animals?


    I suppose what will be really shocking will be the day that a celebrity comes out and announces that he is not caught up in various sexual perversions; and is generally living a happy, healthy, relatively-normal life.

    It will always be a big deal and news while there are millions of people like you running around.

You lack context or you would celebrate with them, that is....if you have any compassion or empathy.
    My, aren't you quick to judge. You know what’s said about “assuming,” yes?

    You don’t know anything about me, including whether I myself am straight or gay. But I will say this: I am certain that I do know first-hand more than you will ever know about the world gay folks live in, that I understand the context and that I have experienced for myself the looks and the assumptions of others, and that you’re way, way out of line for insinuating that I lack compassion and/or empathy. You’re absolutely clueless.



    The real victory, as far as I’m concerned, is not starlets coming out or anybody else coming out. It’s that most people don’t give two craps in their workplace or neighborhood who’s gay or straight. That’s what matters. If it’s so important for some to make public statements, that’s fine with me…but I have the right to say that I’m pretty bored with it all. Which I am.

    If that is the bar then I am already there.

    I can't think of a time in my life that I didn't have gay friends or gay people in my life in one way or the other. I didn't care what they did in their bedrooms as I was not included inthat part of their life.

    I don't see why anybody would care what a Hollywood actress says about who she goes to bed with.

    Who cares?
    Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats. It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. H.L Mencken

    What is it with independents? Aren't we all independents? I can vote for whomever I want, anytime. I think of it as kind of a cop out. You're not above the fray, you just don't know what to stand for.
