During the awards season, every actor has something they think is trenchant to say about their acting. Take Angelina Jolie, please, who says, “I’m finding my time at home with my son and traveling around the world with the U.N. more fulfilling and interesting than making movies.” She is also worried that her film work might conflict with her role as a Goodwill Ambassador. “I’ve never intentionally done any films that I thought sent a horrible message. I’ve done wild things or fun things but not socially irresponsible things.” Well, that’s one opinion right there.
Leonardo DiCaprio, who has been acting for 17 years, says, “This is what I really love doing and what I want to do for the rest of my life.”
Gwyneth Paltrow says: “I might not work for ages. Acting is a fantastic job but it’s not going to define my life.” You tell them, Gwyneth.
On the other hand, Gwyn will start shooting “Running with Scissors” in Los Angeles next month. So, to get in shape, she has borrowed Madonna’s trainer, who is known for his torturous technique that involves being strapped to a wooden rack while ropes and pullies stretch the body into shape. My goodness, that must sting. Can an Iron Maiden be far behind?
