James Woods Criticizes Obama, Says He Doesn’t Expect To Find Work In Hollywood Again
Orlando Bloom Lists Hollywood Hills Home For $4.5 Million (PHOTOS)
West, the 36-year-old rap mogul, appeared on comedian Jimmy Kimmel’s late night talk show Wednesday night where he defended his girlfriend and reality television star Kardashian. While A-list actors appear on the stars that line the sidewalks on Hollywood Boulevard, California native Kardashian, 32, might have been shunned by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce who are in charge of those appearing on the monument. “I want to give a shout out to the stars at the Walk of Fame cause they said something about how they’re not going to put my girl on the walk of Fame cause she’s a reality star. It’s like people are so dated and not modern,” West told Kimmel. “There is no way Kim Kardashian shouldn’t have a star on the Walk of Fame. It’s ridiculous concepts.” Kardashian previously spoke up about wanting to appear on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in an interview with V Magazine last year. “I think there was a quote where somebody said that reality stars will never get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” Kardashian told V. “So, of course I’m so competitive that I think that it would be a huge achievement and a goal that anyone would want. I would love to break that mold.” Kardashian seemed to approve of her boyfriend’s most recent rant and accompanied him to the show while staying behind the scenes with their 4-month-old daughter, North West. Still, she took to Twitter to give West’s comments her stamp of approval by stating, “This Jimmy Kimmel interview is the truth!” Like us on Facebook
Hollywood, TV Campaigns to Spread Obamacare Message
The actor listed the home, located high in the hills near Mulholland Drive, for $4.5 million on Thursday. According to the official listing, double walnut doors open up to a home with an open floor plan, fireplace and custom kitchen. There are four bedrooms and 3.5 bedrooms, and the master suite leads into the backyard. Outdoors, there’s a pool with a swim machine and spa, as well as a built-in barbecue and loggia to take in the city views. The home sits in a gated compound surrounded by ferns and other foliage, which along with the security cameras, make the property a hidden fortress. The Bling Ring teens broke into the property in July 2009 and made off with rolex watches, designer dresses and purses. In a 2010 interview with Vanity Fair , Bling Ring member Nick Prugo said the group was drawn to Bloom’s home because one of them wanted “Victorias Secret model clothes” (Bloom was dating Kerr at the time). Bloom’s security cameras caught the group of teens making multiple trips to and from his home, carrying away large bags of his belongings. In 2012, when director Sophia Coppola decided to turn the Bling Ring saga into a movie, Bloom turned down Coppola’s request to do a cameo in the film. “She asked me to cameo in the movie, but I said it was too close to home for me to want to be involved,” Bloom told Britain’s Hello! magazine . Real estate blog Redfin.com , which first reported on the listing, notes that Bloom had been renting out the home since Aug. for $16,500 a month.
The money will also go to producing pro-ACA public service announcements that track with storylines on the TV series. Our experience has shown that the public gets just as much, if not more, information about current events and important issues from their favorite television shows and characters as they do from the news media and online resources, said Martin Kaplan, who heads the USC program, in a statement. This grant will allow us to ensure that industry practitioners have up-to-date, relevant facts on health care reform to integrate into their storylines and projects. Half of the funding will be devoted to Spanish-language programming. The USC program’s advisory board contains several influential television executives, Deadline Hollywood found. Among them Jennifer Cecil, co-executive producer of “Hostages,” Vince Gilligan, creator of “Breaking Bad” and Chris Nee, the executive producer of Disney Jr.’s “Doc McStuffins.” They join several high profile actors and actresses who have stepped up to lend their names and time to promoting the Obamacare message to a mass audience. Most recently, Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Hudson completed a viral parody video of the popular “Scandal” series, which is set in a fictional White House, for Will Ferrell’s “Funny or Die” online spots. In July, a group of celebrities, including Hudson, visited Washington to meet with the president and his staff and to learn what they could do to assist in advance of the program’s rollout, the Hollywood Reporter said at the time. “The president stopped by the meeting to engage artists who expressed an interest in helping to educate the public about the benefits of the health law,” a White House official told the Hollywood Reporter. “The reach of these national stars spreads beyond the Beltway to fans of their television shows, movies and musicand the power of these artists to speak through social media is especially critical.” They included comic actress Amy Poehler, Michael Cera, Aisha Tyler, as well as representatives who attended on behalf of such megastars as Oprah Winfrey, Alicia Keys and Jon Bon Jovi. Others in Hollywood have taken to social media sites such as Twitter where they participate by posting photos of themselves holding signs that read “Get Covered.” They included Connie Britton, Olivia Wilde, Taye Diggs, Kate Bosworth, Lady Gaga, Sarah Silverman, Katy Perry, Magic Johnson and Kerry Washington, The Hill reported . “These are just the opening moves in a multi-pronged campaign using Hollywood as a platform for the ACA,” a source told Deadline Hollywood.

Actor James Woods has been quite vocal with his criticism of President Barack Obama in the wake of the government slimdown, and the Too Big to Fail star said, as a result, he now expects to struggle to find work in Hollywood. Woods has been busy tweeting about the slimdown and the President, focusing in particular on the fact that veterans have been unable to visit war memorials in Washington D.C. This President is a true abomination. To have barricaded the WW2 vets, but allow illegal aliens privilege… Woods tweeted on Oct. 8. But Woods, 66, was just warming up. The actor also called Obama just vile. A small, small man. That prompted one of his followers to ask if the actor was concerned his political views would affect his ability to find gainful employment in Hollywood. Dude, aren’t u worried about…u know..ever working again?? the Twitter user asked him. Woods replied: I dont expect to work again. I think Barack Obama is a threat to the integrity and future of the Republic. My country first. But Woods didn’t stop with the situation at the memorials. Some of his other tweets also criticized ObamaCare and Democrats.Here is a sampling: “If you like your doctor, you’ll be able…” Oh, sorry. Never mind.
