Cindy McCain blasts Gwyneth Paltrow for what she compared to surviving war!/EdMorrissey/status/471828453550194688

"Did you order the ban hammer?"


#GwynethJessup— Ed Morrissey (@EdMorrissey) May 29, 2014

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow is catching criticism and mockery for a quote that was recently published:!/NYDNgossip/status/471822735111647232

Did Paltrow really compare Hollywood celebs putting up with nasty online comments to surviving a war? You be the judge:

She also compared enduring the wrath of Internet commenters to surviving a war.

“You come across (online comments) about yourself and about your friends, and it’s a very dehumanizing thing,” the star said. “It’s almost like how, in war, you go through this bloody, dehumanizing thing … My hope is, as we get out of it, we’ll reach the next level of conscience.”

Among those who didn’t appreciate Paltrow’s comments was Cindy McCain, wife of Arizona Senator and former GOP presidential nominee John McCain:!/cindymccain/status/471822686222823427

Paltrow recently complained that working moms have it so much easier than rich actresses who work a few months a year, and she’s now elevated the stress of her “craft” to war-like levels.!/RONDA_from_NASH/status/471823376328425472!/rahalonline/status/471827013242978306!/abzgvq4/status/471824251310579712

Great advice.

R.I.P.: Fans pay tribute to legendary movie badass Eli Wallach [photos, video]!/gtitov/status/481729893873766400

Prolific actor Eli Wallach passed away yesterday. He was 98.

A self-styled journeyman actor, the versatile Mr. Wallach appeared in scores of roles, often with his wife, Anne Jackson. No matter the part, he always seemed at ease and in control, whether playing a Mexican bandit in the 1960 western “The Magnificent Seven,” a bumbling clerk in Ionesco’s allegorical play “Rhinoceros,” a henpecked French general in Jean Anouilh’s “Waltz of the Toreadors,” Clark Gable’s sidekick in “The Misfits” or a Mafia don in “The Godfather: Part III.”

Fans worldwide paid tribute on Twitter to the talented onscreen legend.!/Cookieklag/status/481664229905149952!/ArthurAlbertTV/status/481764740121653249!/TheIndyFilm/status/481787034638766080!/TheBiancaT/status/481774210843283457
