Movies reviews with matching food – eat, watch, enjoy
Recently the media has been all over our poor Whoopi. The lady who brought us Ghost, Sister Act and who can forget The Color Purple? Reportedly, Ms Goldberg was ‘high’ when she received the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in Ghost.
Shock, horror… actors on drugs? Inconceivable! One can only hope awesome actors like Charlie Sheen stay away from the hard stuff and did River Phoenix die of natural causes? I think not! Michael Jackson probably could have taken something natural like Valerian to help him sleep as could our Aussie superstar, Heath Ledger. Drugs are not new nor are they really news people!
The poor performers with the poor pressure on them, even when they’re successful feel like they have to resort to drugs to make their life even more successful! I guess when you’ve reached the top there’s no place to go except down. And down they fall and land with a ‘thud’. Do the punters lose respect when their favourite actors fall? Or do they/we just realise that these are normal people with extraordinary jobs?
We shouldn’t be surprised when we hear our fav actors have been high on tv. That is probably the sad ‘norm’ for such performers. Nor should we glorify drug taking, afterall those lethal substances have been responsible for the death of many a beloved performer and here they are:
And that’s not half of them! A timely reminder Mr Sheen and Ms Goldberg.
