@Tokenkindly Yes, I have trouble quoting bigger posts on my phone (not sure if the segment I'm referencing will show up as quote) but the way you described it is very much like what I meant by celebrity entitlement. Think Trump's "I could shoot someone on a public street" comment, but cranked down a couple notches.
There are sometimes stories about celebrities like Robin Williams who would always try to give homeless people jobs on set (or comfort strangers in some public setting, etc), or who make sure every single person working on set is fairly compensated for their work - Smith is not one of them. And though I can't recall specific incidents, I vaguely remember hearing he falls on the other side of that spectrum - his behavior this week tracks with that impression. I think earlier on he'd had a reputation for his comedy; he was good at being silly and not taking himself too seriously. But that changed at some point. (LOL @ Cruise being more talented. It's totally possible. I just can't stomach watching him in anything anymore - Magnolia was the last film I was able to appreciate in spite of his participation).
Yeah, every once in a while you get a good apple like Williams.
Cruise and some other actors can be acquired tastes, I get it. Just trying to offer that objectively he has some talent rather than just being a total flake.
Maybe we can all at least agree that "Wild Wild West" is a shit film that Smith gave up The Matrix for. While I still don't hold a great opinion of Reeves' acting ability (aside from kinetic roles), he's one of the good apples from all that I've read and I admire him on that level.
sorry, was skimming stuff on phone and just was crunched at work, so I only really had seen your final post that mentioned me, rather than seeing all your other posts this morning.
