Hollywood Cool: 84 Celebs Sign Statement Against Terrorism

It does take a certain amount of hhhcchhhutzpachhh, as Those People say, to sign one's name to the bleeding obvious. I mean, sure, Hollywood isn't exactly a fountain of anti-Israeli sentiment, but still.

So they should be congratulated.

And they didn't just sign a statement against terrorism generally. No, that's for leftie wussies like Matt Damon. They named names -- like Hezboallah and Hamas.

A lot of, well, Usual Suspects on the list, like James Woods, Bruce Willis, and Dennis Hopper. They haven't exactly hidden their leanings.

Yeah, Dennis Hopper was a shock and a half a year ago, but we've known he was strong with the Dark Side of the Force for a while.

Some surprises that are really not surprises, like Danny DeVito. Jersey guy. Makes sense.

Don Johnson. I could have seen that one going either way. Either way, he would have been a little, well, Don Johnson about it. I'm glad he chose wisely. (Still want to know what the hell was the deal with the supposedly $8 billion in bank notes found in a car he was driving. That should be his next movie.)

But William Hurt? Never in a thousand years would I have guessed that one. I figured he was "that way," if you know what I'm saying. Liberal as all get out, I mean. Nick from The Big Chill but with a Sierra Club membership card.

Niccole Kidman (surprise), Kelly Preston (rrrrarrrr), Sam Raimi (should've guessed), Dick Donner (should've guessed), Ridley Scott (kinda already knew-- he's made a lot of covert conservative statements), brother Tony Scott (shoulda known -- True Romance, Crimson Tide).

On the other hand, I generally assume cool people are Republican or at least not anti-American or ultralefty and relatively sane. It's always a disappointment to find out they're not.

Prescience: A few days ago Mrs. R, also known as Wuzzademette, played with the idea that Hollywood was "scooching right."
