The Stealth Hippopotamus: Why oh why are people calling actresses actors?!
Sybarite: The Stealth Hippopotamus: Why oh why are people calling actresses actors?!I know! And while we're at it why do people insist on calling manageresses managers and aviatrixes aviators and editresses editors?/you'll get over it
The Stealth Hippopotamus: Why oh why are people calling actresses actors?!I'll stop calling them actresses when the Oscars and Golden Globes eliminate the catigory of Best Actress in a Staring Role.Currently on the SAG calls them female actors
Diogenes: Neither Schrader nor Lohan's publicist gave a reason for the last-minute cancellation.Flight risk?
Earguy: Someday an intersexed person will turn in a great performance, where will they be classified?
MrEricSir: Still waiting for James Lipton to slobber all over her on Inside the Actor's Studio one day.
Mugato: MrEricSir: Still waiting for James Lipton to slobber all over her on Inside the Actor's Studio one day."Your turn in Jennifer's Body was sublime...I wept. And Herbie Fully Loaded...never has the craft been so emotionally devastating. Excuse me, I must lie in repose."

skinink: Too bad for Lindsay. I always like to see a good comeback
Mobius strip of human stupidity: What the hell was Paul Schrader thinking by having anything to do with that person.
Mugato: skinink: Too bad for Lindsay. I always like to see a good comebackThat's what I never got. Comeback from what? Robert Downey Jr, Drew Barrymore, LL Cool J...oh wait, we can't call that a comeback. He's been here for years. What did Lindsey really do to qualify as a comeback? Mean Girls? Everyone always cites that but has anyone ever actually seen it?
Uzzah: If she hadn't been a big enough star before going into her downward spiral, the media wouldn't have really cared and we wouldn't be talking about her now
Maynotlast: PAUL SCHRADER: "One of her problems as an actor is she has a very hard time faking things."SUBBY: (smugly) Which might be a problem if you were, oh I don't know... an actor or something.FARKERS: Um... right. The thing Paul Schrader just said. Good one, Subby. Here's some more juicey-juice. (FACE PALM)
Mugato: I think it's the opposite. If Christina Ricci or Alicia Silverstone had developed a highly publicized drug habit, they'd be in the same position. And at least they would have the career to back it up.
crotchgrabber: hasty ambush: actor/actressweatherman/weathergirldad/momman/womanhim/herstandard transmission/automatic transmissionYou're saying women can't drive stick?
Uzzah: I don't get where you're saying that LL didn't have a career before all this:"The Parent Trap" (lead role): $ 66 mil. domestic box office (in 1998 dollars). Made more than the Oscar-winning "Life Is Beautiful""Freaky Friday" (lead role): $ 110 million domestic. 21st highest grossing film for the year (beating "The Italian Job" and "Scary Movie 3," and kicking the crap out of "Kill Bill, Vol. 1")"Mean Girls" (lead role): $ 86 million domestic. 28th for the year. Made more than "Anchorman" and Oscar-winner "Ray""Herbie: Fully Loaded" (lead role): $ 66 million.Want me to compare that to Christina Ricci's biggest films? I'll leave out her niche art films and just go with the broad box office ones:"Adams Family": $113 mil in 1991. Huge numbers, but she wasn't even close to being the lead in that."That Darn Cat" (lead role): $ 18 mil"Sleepy Hollow" (second-billed to Johnny Depp): $ 101 mil."Monster" (second-billed to Charlize Theron): $ 34 milThe takeaway from that: she's been in some hits, but she's never anchored one.
