During the red carpet show leading up to the 40th anniversary special of NBC’s Saturday Night Live, actor Jim Carrey ended his interview with Today co-hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie on a rather awkward note by suddenly asking them where NBC is “hiding” suspended NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams. Carrey interjected with: “Can I ask you guys a question? Where are you hiding Brian Williams? Where is he?”
To Yesha Callahan of The Root, actor Vince Vaughn's critique of affirmative action -- which is rooted in his libertarian political leanings -- is not worth engaging on an intellectual level as a debatable philosophical proposition. It's just straight-up invalid because Vaughn is "tall," "rich" and "white."
Mexican-American comedian George Lopez recently offered some telling commentary about his politics. During an interview with Univision’s Jorge Ramos, Lopez said he does not publicly identify as either a Democrat or Republican. However, he acknowledged he faces a quandary.
Lena Dunham is blissfully untroubled by self-awareness. It’s a quality that might be endearing in someone less repulsive. But in a recent interview with Grantland’s Bill Simmons it comes off as the obnoxiousness of a spoiled brat.
Take, for instance, when the 28-year-old, who’s currently flogging her memoir (even Obama had the decency to wait until his early 30s), and much of who’s work in “Girls” is at least somewhat autobiographical said, “I never want to become someone where like what’s happening to me becomes the entirety of the reality of the world.”
If, like his character in the “Taken” franchise, Liam Neeson has a “very particular set of skills,” it doesn’t include recognizing his own hypocrisy. While the hyper-violent “Taken 3” was pulling down $39.2 million at the box office its opening weekend, Neeson was in Dubai railing against guns.
Twitchy reports it's time again for another round of feminists being furious that a successful actress told an interviewer she doesn’t really identify with their F-word. This time, it’s Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, now making $1 million per episode on the CBS nerd-com The Big Bang Theory.
In a Redbook cover story, they asked Cuoco-Sweeting if she considered herself a feminist. Her answer acknowledged the progress before her, but also accepted some of the traditions she observed in her childhood. One might call that position “pro-choice.” But not the feminists!

Musician Lenny Kravitz is being honored for saying something remarkably sexist in an interview. “I personally think women should be running the world...I believe women are so much more sensible, have so much better intuition, and ultimately are stronger.”
Glamour.com raved: “And our favourite celebrity of the day is... Lenny Kravitz! Why? Because he recognises how wonderful us women are. That's right - Lenny Kravitz thinks women should be running the world because they are stronger and more sensible than men.”
Well, we know Chris Rock has a movie coming out next week. He’s been making the rounds on different media outlets, talking about the issues of the day – recently talking race relations, the Ferguson verdict, even sharing his views about race in Hollywood in an article for the December 12 issue of The Hollywood Reporter.
In what The Hollywood Reporter calls a “Blistering Essay on Hollywood's Race Problem", Rock doesn’t hold anything back when talking about race relations in Hollywood, even comparing Hollywood industry to that of the NBA: “Just as the NBA is a black industry. I'm not even saying it's a bad thing. It just is,” he wrote.
In the latest example of “Please just shut up and act,” actor Christian Bale, star of Ridley Scott’s upcoming Biblical epic “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” has equated Moses with modern day terrorists.
“[He was] absolutely seen as a freedom fighter for the Hebrews, but a terrorist in terms of the Egyptian empire.”
"Moron vote energized," reported Twitchy. President Obama once called her husband Kanye West a "jackass," but Kim Kardashian pictured herself (in an Archie-style cartoon) with Obama on Twitter, advising her fans to vote Democrat on Tuesday.
Washington Post reporter Hunter Schwarz threw a major embarrassment at the liberal group Rock the Vote – just by checking the facts.
