Remember actress Sigourney Weaver? Her career was big in the ’80s, and by now, she’s basically a has-been desperate to be noticed.
So desperate in fact that Weaver has chosen to attack America’s men and compare them to Islamic fundamentalists.
In USA Weekend, Weaver says she tells her poor daughter Charlotte:
When I read about these guys in the Middle East who don’t want their wives and daughters to go to school, I think there’s some sort of bizarre kinship with American men who don’t want a woman president.
Uh, actually, that would be American women who don’t want a woman to be President. We do have at least half the vote, and we’ve never picked one (Thank G-d). And I, for one, would never vote for the female choices presented thus far. Don’t look for that to change.
Good to note that Weaver hates American men so much, she’s willing to compare them to Osama and his buds. Not that American men would go see her latest film she’s pimping, “Infamous” (she has only a tiny role, now that she’s a hag). I’ve seen it, and it’s an avoid-at-all-costs piece of garbage if there ever was one. Straight American men wouldn’t be caught dead in yet another movie celebrating bizarre gay writer Truman Capote. I mean, how many movies featuring weird gay men making out in Cowboyland can one stand?
Never liked Weaver, anyway. She’s one of those snooty actresses (redundant) who thinks she’s all that because of her privileged prep school, Ivy League background. Her name isn’t even Sigourney–it was Susan, but she changed it to the more pretentious first name she has now. Plus, I’ll never forget her starring role in that cockamamie, early ’80s, anti-Semitic movie, “Eyewitness,” in which Jews from America and Israel pay off and kill Vietnamese (and try to kill a Vietnam Vet janitor) to get Jews out of the Soviet Union. Like that ever happened.
File under: Sigourney Weaver–Now there’s a chick, er . . . Gorilla in the Mist we’d love to see in a burqa.
