    GIVE ME A B…

  2. I miss Australian actors talking in their natural accents. At least Rose Byrne still has one.

    Kiki: what part of Australia has Rose’s accent? I ask because it sounds so distinct, that I am wondering if Australians have very distinct regional accents like Americans do (I’m sure they do, but I am just asking for clarification). If you could fill a brother in. I would appreciate it.

    Add me to the “huge crush on Rose Byrne” club. She could stand to gain a few pounds, however.

    Classy, classy interview. My adoration for Rose Byrne has been approaching Macadams-levels for a while now, from Sunshine thru 28 Weeks Later to Damages, and hopefully Adam will be the breakout movie she deserves. I often wish that Lucas had cast her rather than Natalie Portman to play Amidala – she gave the only decent human performance in Attack of the Clones in less than two minutes of screentime.

  6. IO, Aussies don’t tend to have regional accents. The difference in her accent is probably more down to it being a blend (she’s worked in Aussie, American and British accents) but she’s from Sydney and a Sydney accent is no different to a Melbourne (where I’m from) accent or a Perth accent or so on.

    Thanks for the response Kiki.

“We don’t have any idea what the universe is. Wise people have always told us that this is proof you shouldn’t think, because thinking leads you nowhere. You just build over this huge construction of misunderstanding, which is culture. The history of culture is the history of the misunderstandings of great thinkers. So we always have to go back to zero and begin differently. And maybe in that way you have a chance not to understand but at least not to have further misunderstandings. Because this is the other side of this question—Am I really so brave to cancel all human culture? To stop admiring the beauty in human production? It’s very difficult to say no.”

“I have a license to carry in New York. Can you believe that? Nobody knows that, [Applause] somebody attacks, somebody attacks me, oh, they’re gonna be shot. Can you imagine? Somebody says, oh, it is Trump, he’s easy pickings what do you say? Right? Oh, boy. What was the famous movie? No. Remember, no remember where he went around and he sort of after his wife was hurt so badly and kill. What?  I — Honestly, Yeah, right, it’s true, but you have many of them. Famous movie. Somebody. You have many of them. Charles Bronson right the late great Charles Bronson name of the movie come on.  , remember that? Ah, we’re gonna cut you up, sir, we’re gonna cut you up, uh-huh.


One of the great movies. Charles Bronson, great, Charles Bronson. Great movies. Today you can’t make that movie because it’s not politically correct, right? It’s not politically correct. But could you imagine with Trump? Somebody says, oh, all these big monsters aren’t around he’s easy pickings and then shoot.”
