Apparently some people can't understand that you can be critical of a person's behaviour while at the same time praising their talent.

yeah.

it is also true that we all draw those lines somewhere, don't we? where the character of the artist does get in the way of the art. i mean, on music boards, it can be a riot to see just how many musicians can behave not only badly but abysmally, yet they get a pass where actors, writers, politicans will not. cuz, well, we luvvvvv the music and the music matters most!

just becuz we draw our lines in different places doesn't mean anyone else's lines are bullcrap. in fact, it's probably a good argument for finding a lil more tolerance for anyone else's lines.

I emphatically do NOT agree that he was a poor actor.

I think his performances in "the Hill", "the molly maguires" and especially "the offence" are extremely good.


But ... Marnie?

i hated marnie, it's true.

ya knowww... i am ever tempted to ask guys who write off things like comments about slappin women around... do you know any women, in yer family or in yer circle of friends, who took a punch to the face from a man in a relationship? (see, this is me, not askin.)

i have. exactly once. i've made sure and for the rest of my life that it'll never happen to me again.

so it stands to reason with my own lines, i might be a tad bit more touchy about those kinds of comments.

at the same time, i have zero probs admitting my own contradictions. i loved connery as bond. he dripped a charisma i can't even describe. my sister would've done him a day before he died, i think. i even read all the fleming books at a ridiculously young age cuz i stole em from a brother who was thirteen years older than i was, mwhaha. and connery was bond to me. hell, i loved connery in highlander, but i would never admit such a thing in public, of course.

er... oops.
