I should be noted that Jennifer has a poster to illustrate

her attitude toward celebritutes and general Hollywood weenies:

And has a post to further the point:
“The nation mourned,” Sarandon said. “I did feel a sense of responsibility, because I knew that people had a certain idea of how I was and who we were.”

For the record, Sarandon adds, “But on your deathbed, it’s not really going to matter how those people felt.”
Mourned? Really? Because an entertainment service monkey* who is past her prime split with another entertainment service monkey? To be perfectly honest, I didn’t even realize the chick from Rocky Horror Picture Show and the guy from Shawshank Redemption were even together. And I don’t care.

Say it, lady.

No mourning in sight this side of the sea either. It's nearly impossible to miss these news, at least if you have the habit of reading the front covers of the papers while waiting in line to pay for your groceries, but I totally missed this particular 'event' when it happened, just learned now.

I suppose we should feel some sympathy for these celebrities. They presumably meet mostly their more rabid fans (and considering almost every phenomena can gather rabid fans, the fact that somebody has them doesn't necessarily say that much), so it's easy to get a pretty slanted idea of what the masses think about them. Most people don't really care that much, but that also means most people won't try to go and talk with them either. But that life really does seem to mess with their heads.
