The 30 Harshest Actor-on-Actor Insults in History


The 30 Harshest Actor-on-Actor Insults in History

In the current ultra-managed, publicist-controlled, sound-byte-driven media atmosphere, you don’t get to hear stars really speaking their minds anymore — at least, not about anything fun, like how they really feel about their fellow stars. But occasionally a little something sneaks through the PR wall, both now and back in Hollywood’s golden age, sometimes as whispers, sometimes as gossip, sometimes long after the fact. And thus, we present another, long-overdue installment of our ongoing series (following authors, filmmakers, and musicians) of really famous people really cutting each other down.

Joan Crawford and Bette Davis in "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane"
1. Bette Davis on Joan Crawford:
“Joan Crawford — I wouldn’t sit on her toilet!”
“I wouldn’t piss on Joan Crawford if she were on fire.”
“Joan Crawford — Hollywood’s first case of syphilis.”
“She has slept with every male star at MGM except Lassie.”
“Why am I so good at playing bitches? I think it’s because I’m not a bitch. Maybe that’s why Miss Crawford always plays ladies.”
“You should never say bad things about the dead, you should only say good… Joan Crawford is dead. Good.”

2. Joan Crawford on Bette Davis:
“Bette will play anything, so long as she thinks someone is watching. I’m a little more selective than that.”
“She may have more Oscars… she’s also made herself into something of a joke.”
“Miss Davis was always partial to covering up her face in motion pictures. She called it ‘art.’ Others might call it camouflage — a cover-up for the absence of any real beauty.”
“I don’t hate Bette Davis, even though the press wants me to. I resent her — I don’t see how she built a career out of mannerisms instead of real acting ability. She’s a phony, but I guess the public likes that.”

3. Viven Leigh on Bette Davis (after turning down Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte:
“I could almost stand to look at Joan Crawford’s face at 6am, but not Bette Davis.”

4. Barbara Stanwyck on Marilyn Monroe:
“Her body has gone to her head.”

Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn.

5. Bette Davis on Cary Grant:
“He needed willowy or boyish girls like Katharine Hepburn to make him look what they now call macho. If I’d co-starred with Grant or if Crawford had, we’d have eaten him for breakfast.”

6. Cary Grant on Marlon Brando, Montgomery Clift, James Dean:
“I have no rapport with the new idols of the screen, and that includes Marlon Brando and his style of Method acting. It certainly includes Montgomery Clift and that God-awful James Dean. Some producer should cast all three of them in the same movie and let them duke it out. When they’ve finished each other off, James Stewart, Spencer Tracy and I will return and start making real movies again like we used to.”

7. Richard Burton on Marlon Brando:
“Marlon has yet to learn to speak. He should have been born two generations before and acted in silent films.”

8. Marlon Brando on James Dean:
“Mr. Dean appears to be wearing my last year’s wardrobe and using my last year’s talent.”

9. Richard Harris on Michael Caine:
“An over-fat, flatulent, 62-year-old windbag. A master of inconsequence masquerading as a guru, passing off his vast limitations as pious virtues.”

10. Rex Harrison on Charlton Heston:
“Charlton Heston is good at playing arrogance and ambition. But in the same way that a dwarf is good at being short.”

Harrison Ford and Shia LaBeouf in "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull"

11. Harrison Ford on Shia LaBeouf:
“I think he was a fucking idiot.”

12. Dean Martin on James Stewart:
“There’s a statue of Jimmy Stewart in the Hollywood Wax Museum, and the statue talks better than he does.”

13. Sir John Gielgud on Ingrid Bergman:
“Dear Ingrid — speaks five languages and can’t act in any of them.”

14. Frank Sinatra on Shelly Winters:
“A bowlegged bitch of a Brooklyn blonde.”

15. Shelly Winters on Frank Sinatra:
“A skinny, no-talent, stupid Hoboken bastard.”

Frank Sinatra and Mia Farrow.

16. Ava Gardner on Mia Farrow and Frank Sinatra:
“I always knew Frank would end up in bed with a boy.”

17. Traci Lords on Johnny Depp:
“He’s the kind of guy that would be really sweet to a girl and bring her flowers, but still take a pee in the alley.”

18. Bill Murray to Chevy Chase:
“Medium talent!”

19. Julia Roberts on Nick Nolte:
“A disgusting human being.”

20. Nick Nolte on Julia Roberts:
“It’s not nice to call someone ‘disgusting’. But she’s not a nice person. Everyone knows that.”

Gwyneth Paltrow

21. Sharon Stone on Gwyneth Paltrow:
“[She’s] very young and lives in rarefied air that’s a little thin. It’s like she’s not getting quite enough oxygen.”

22. Katherine Hepburn on Sharon Stone:
“It’s a new low for actresses when you have to wonder what’s between her ears instead of her legs.”

23. Susan Sarandon on Mel Gibson:
“Mel Gibson is somewhere to the right of Attila the Hun. He’s beautiful, but only on the outside.”

24. Walter Matthau to Barbara Streisand:
“I have more talent in my smallest fart than you have in your entire body.”

25. Elliot Gould on Jerry Lewis:
“This arrogant, sour, ceremonial, piously chauvinistic egomaniac.”

John Travolta

26. Graham Chapman on John Travolta:
How difficult can it be to fly an airplane? I mean, John Travolta learned how.”

27. W.C. Fields on Mae West:
“A plumber’s idea of Cleopatra.”

28. W.C. Fields on Charlie Chaplin:
“He’s a goddamned ballet dancer.”

29. Robert Downey Jr. on Hugh Grant:
“A self-important, boring, flash-in-the-pan Brit.”

30. John Wayne on Clark Gable:
“Gable’s an idiot. You know why he’s an actor? It’s the only thing he’s smart enough to do.”

The UN Announced World Hunger Could End By 2030 — If Everyone Did This One Thing


Announced World Hunger Could End By 2030 — If Everyone Did This One Thing

It’s pretty simple!

The UN Announced World Hunger Could End By 2030 — If Everyone Did This One Thing

The UN recently made a decree of what vegetarians have said for years: eating less meat actually can and does help the world.

Last week, Reuters reported that the United Nations plans to put a plan in place later this month to end world hunger by 2030, which according to the organization, is totally doable. The world just needs to adopt slightly different eating habits first, including consuming less red meat.

While a recent study found that eating less red meat has a significant impact on protecting the environment, like other studies have also found in the past, it’s not the main driver behind their future push to change the world’s hunger problem. The “change in diet” initiative is aimed at reallocating resources properly.

According to officials, there’s enough food in the world for everyone. Hunger is just a cause of a food distribution problem isn’t allotting enough food for everyone. For instance, the UN says that eating meat once a week, instead of four, would help commodity prices go down, which would mean less food would be needed to feed animals and overall food prices would be cheaper for lower-income people.

They hope that eventually farmers would transition to producing mostly grains and vegetables instead of livestock.

“It’s not going to be easy, but if you look at the arithmetic, it is achievable,” Jomo Sundaram, assistant director-general of the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), told Reuters.

Other issues Reuters reports the UN hopes will change is the amount of food countries waste — richer countries can conserve by learning to use up food that would have gone to waste and developing countries by adopting better refrigeration systems (that will help foods last longer).

With 1 in 9 people in the world without enough food, or malnourished, these practices are necessary for the United Nations to meet its goal. Though hard, past initiatives have proved efforts such as the ones outlined above are not impossible.

Per Reuters, the UN’s Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) aimed to cut world hunger in half by 2000 and succeeded.

“I don’t think it’s all that ambitious to eliminate hunger,” Sundaram said.

Luigi Guarino, senior scientist with the Global Crop Diversity Trust, suggests that even switching to crops that can sustain themselves in higher temperatures can help with the initiative. He agrees with Sundaram.

“There is no silver bullet to reaching the goal (of eliminating hunger),” he said. “But even if we get 80 percent there, it’s well worth it.”

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TRUMAN CAPOTE Born: September 30, 1924, New Orleans, LA


Truman Capote Facts


#Truman Capote was an American writer best known for his true crime novel In Cold Blood and his novella Breakfast at Tiffany’s. He was born Truman Streckfus Persons on September 30th, 1924 in New Orleans, Louisiana to Lillie Mae Faulk and Archulus Persons, a salesman. When he was four his parents divorced and he went to live with relatives in Monroeville, Alabama where he became friends with future author Harper Lee. Truman began writing fiction when he was 11 and was often seen carrying a notebook and dictionary with him. His mother remarried and the family moved around from Monroeville, to New York City, to Greenwich, Connecticut, and then back to New York City. Truman graduated from the Dwight School in 1943 and began working at The New Yorker. He returned to Alabama within 2 years and began writing his first novel.
Interesting Truman Capote Facts:

Truman’s name was changed to Truman Garcia Capote in 1935 when his mother married Joseph Capote, and he adopted Truman as his own son.
Truman’s mother was emotionally abusive to him once they moved to New York City following her second marriage. She alternated between being kind or cruel to him, depending on her mood.
While in school some of Truman’s teachers encouraged him to pursue writing, believing that he had talent.
Truman did not see the point in attending a post-secondary institution, believing that he was either a good writer or he wasn’t. He didn’t believe that school could teach him to be good.
While working at The New Yorker Truman tried to get his work published but had no success. He quit and returned to Alabama to write his first novel Summer Crossing. The book was set aside and was not published until 2005.

HIWAY AMERICA -The World’s Fair in Queens, New York

The World’s Fair was held twice in the New York City borough of Queens, once in 1939/1940 and again in 1964/1965 at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park. These are the only World’s Fairs ever to be held over two seasons.

New York was also host to a World’s Fair in 1853, the Exhibition of the Industry of All Nations held in Manhattan at what is now Bryant Park.

1939/1940 World’s Fair

This fair was the second largest ever held in the United States, second only to the St. Louis’s Louisiana Purchase Exposition of 1904. Master planner Robert Moses used the fair as an opportunity to build Flushing Meadows Park, draining swampland and cleaning up the immense ash pile at the site known as Mount Corona. However, due to financial shortfalls, the park envisioned by Moses was not completed until the 1964/1965 fair.

Tipping Etiquette Around the World

1964/1965 World’s Fair

The 1964/1965 World’s Fair was one of the high points of New York City history in the 1960s. It was a time of optimism before the travails of the Vietnam War and protest era. The fair attracted national and international attention and showcased the city that never sleeps and the dawn of the American Space Age.

Some 51 million visitors attended the fair. A generation of New Yorkers were touched by their visits to the fair. Strike up a conversation with New York Baby Boomers — anyone who was a child, teen, or young adult in the mid-1960s — and you’re bound to hear stories of the fair.

Legacy – Structures from the World’s Fairs

Some structures remains and have been repurposed at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, including:

  • 250-foot Towers of the New York State Pavilion (which still stand, somewhat precariously)
  • Unisphere
  • New York Hall of Science (a science museum which had been the Hall of Science)
  • The fair’s former Helipad is now the Terrace on the Park catering hall
  • World’s Fair Building/Churchill Tribute became the aviary at the Queens Zoo

The Queens Museum of Art is housed today in the former New York City pavilion from the 1939/1940 fair. The museum’s attractions include the Panorama, a scale-model of New York City built for the 1964/1965 fair, as well as exhibits and memorabilia of both fairs.
