Bacall on 'Vulgar' Cruise; Connery on Hollywood 'Idiots'  
Pretty much the only good thing about growing old in Hollywood is you are finally able to say exactly what's on your mind, a perk straight-shooting showbiz veterans Lauren Bacall, 80, and Sean Connery, 74, are enjoying to the fullest.

"I love the magnificent and amazing Katie Holmes!" world tour of 2005.

I had to laugh at the idea of him doing a "tour" to promote his madness...er I mean love.

Sean Conery as Gandalf? No offense to the man, but I'm glad they went with Ian McKellen.

I'm also glad people are starting to notice how fucking nutty everybody in Hollyweird is.

Bad stupid typographical errors...

Of Course Bacall may just be stuck inher own old age here, it's a rare thing for those of the Older generations to be happy being replaced as 'greats'. Personally I laugh at anyone who continues to bash the famous, then goes and pays to see their performaces.

As for Connery, good, retire man, you've earned it... and if you do decide to make another flick, no more action movies, we're not buying the stand-ins.

Thanks for sharing, I never read or watch the 'bloids, so I was not sure what all the 'Cruise' talk among the comedians was about. Everyone knows about the 'idiots', and I applaud Connery for having had enough and saying so. I think both of these people are talking about the same lack...dignity. It's an 'old age' idea, but I do miss it.

Sadly, "dignity" seems to have died around the same time "personal responsibility" did.

Think there might be a relationship? If I do not respect myself, how can I expect others to respect me. If I lose a thing, then play as if it did not matter?

A considerable relationship.

As the world gets faster and attention spans wane, respect is a rarer and rarer commodity. Respect is not a quick thing, it is a slow process, where the respect is earned. With the speed precluding the ability to truly learn to respect others, self-respect wanes as well, in favour of demanded rights. Without respect for yourself and others, you'll have no respect for the Social Contract, thus losing any feeling of personal responsibility. And, if you cannot respect yourself, anyone else, or social mores...how can you have any dignity?

OK, that kicks ass.
