Fighting Around the World — Russell Crowe is sick
of people like Harry Knowles and Matt Drudge talking smack about
him, so he’s just not gonna talk to them anymore.
According to the Internet Movie Database, Crowe has banned all
Internet journalists from the press junkets for his new film
— with the longest title ever — “Master and
Commander: The Far Side of the World.” Crowe has grown tired
of all the “lies” printed about him on web
publications, blaming them for his rowdy reputation.
Apparently, his assault of an awards- show director and penchant
for stealing married women have nothing to do with that bad rep;
nope, it’s all the media!
So far, there have been no reports of Crowe boycotting
“South Park;” lending creedence to their assertion that
Crowe enjoys life in three ways: making movies, making songs and
fighting around the world.
Wild at Heart — The New York Post reports that cult
filmmaker David Lynch is on a fundraising mission to establish a
network of “peace palaces” all over the globe.
With an ultimate goal of raising $1 billion, Lynch and
Transcendental Meditation movement leader Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
plan on building meditation temples in 3,000 of the world’s
largest cities and a 40,000-capacity headquarters in India. One can
only assume that Twin Peaks, Wash., will be one of the first cities
to host a temple.
Lynch has followed meditational practices for over 30 years and
takes this cause very seriously. Lynch told the Post,
“I’m going all out for this. It’s kind of
important to have peace on Earth.”
