The violence in movies has certainly changed. I think it is sad how much of the storylines and character development are left out so they can put in a few more explosions and people shooting in extremely slow motion.

Isn't the real question why WE care about Alec Baldwin's behavior? If nobody read and responded to all the gossip about celebrities fewer people would write about them and then we might really find out who does care what is said about them.

Doesn't Alec Baldwin, realize that with his bizarre outbrusts and strange behavior that he has lost most of his credibility , and even though he may prevail in court , the court of public opinion will never completely trust that he didn't have an affair with this woman. It just seems to follow his entitled belief system that there are rules for others and a different set for himself.

Why do you believe that Alec Baldwin cares what you or the public thinks of him?

Apparently a sitting U.S. President can have an affair but God forbid if an actor has an affair.

Because his income depends upon what the public thinks of him. Why do you think he hires a publicist if he does not care?

CNBC Rick Santelli missed the boat when he tried to manipulate a Nobel Prize winner to see economics as he does. He tried to silence Dr Faro....shame shame
