I thought this was quite humorous-

Russell Crowe: “I don’t do ads for suits in Spain like George Clooney or cigarettes in Japan like Harrison [Ford]. It’s kind of sacrilegious, a contradiction of the contract with your audience. DeNiro advertising American Express -- gee whiz.”

George Clooney: "I'm glad he set us straight, because Harrison, Bob and I were putting a band together called Grunting for 30 Feet, and that would also fall under the heading of 'bad use of celebrity.' Thanks for the heads up."

But even funnier was Alicia's response when I sent that to her. Her response-
Russell Crowe: “I am an actor so my job is to pretend to be someone I am not, yet for some reason people care what I say. I like to advertise beer and kangaroos to Australians, because then they give me free beer and kangaroos. Its kind of religious to me because I think I am about as intelligent as a drunk kangaroo. Please give me money now.”

George Clooney: "It's a good thing I am cute or I would be flipping burgers in Omaha."


I'll take George's crinkly, smiling puppydog brown eyes over Russell's pompousness any day!

HAHAHA!!! That's great.

While I was surprised to see Robert Dinero in the commercial at my sister's house the other day, I don't think there's anything wrong with a company utilizing the benefit of celebrity face recognition, or of Mr. Dinero utilizing the fat paycheck he probably recieved for it.

Somebody should tell Russell Crowe that if he really has a problem with marketing, he should get a 9 to 5 job, and just work in community theatre to indulge in his "craft"....what a pompous ass.

As long as they're trying to sell booze and not running for public office I have no problems with famous people using that weird tick in our brains that makes us respond positively to familiar faces for their own financial gain.

Hawk rolaids, not social security "reform".

I'm still deeply dissapointed in my home state. Didn't they get fucked over hard enough by the gipper that they just might think that electing a sound byte chomping austrian with ties so close to Enron that their love screams DAMN THE LATEX WE'RE YOUNG FREE AND UNREGULATED.

Woody Allen I could vote for... invade Iraq? Jesus no, I get chafing just looking at the sand on coney island.
