Adam Brody recently did an interview with writer Diablo Cody and she asked him what he thought about celebrities such as Kristen Stewart, who seem put off by the fame that comes with their job.
At the time Adam offered a pretty candid response saying, “It’s only gotten worse, I’m sure, being a celebrity. At the same time, I don’t have a lot of patience for people who moan about it too much. Because there are many things you could do… It’s like, quit… you don’t need to be an actor, so it’s like, if it’s that much of a problem… there’s the door.”
After seeing the interview and being asked follow up questions by MTV News, Adam basically retracted his statement, “It wasn’t taken out of context. I saw (the interview) and thought I sounded like an idiot. I did. Regardless of how anyone else took anything, I would think that sounds very ungentlemanly and I sounded like a jacka**.”
I’d never knock a dude for trying to do the gentlemanly thing, but there would have been a way to reiterate his statement without What he initially said, although not especially articulate, was not inaccurate. Working in Hollywood requires a certain willingness to play along with fame. Hollywood is not a small art community that deeply gives a shit about your performance. It’s a business, and you don’t make money by being a nobody. Nothing ungentlemanly in being smart about your business.
So Diablo Cody has a new web show, and for her first episode, she interviewed Adam Brody. They talked about a variety of topics in a quirky, sarcastic way, but one of the more interesting parts is around the 5:50 mark when she asks Adam if he enjoys fame or if he wishes he could separate acting from the fame, “ala Kristen Stewart.” Here’s what he said:
“It’s only gotten worse, I’m sure, being a celebrity. At the same time, I don’t have a lot of patience for people who moan about it too much. Because there are many things you could do. It’s like, quit, fuckin’ quit … you don’t need to be an actor, so it’s like if it’s that much of a problem … there’s the door.”
Snap! And you know Adam was in a movie with Kristen a few years ago, In the Land of Women, so it’s not like he doesn’t know her. I hope she keeps up with him so she can finally realize that she can, in fact, fuckin’ quit. Let’s be real though, she’s too busy smoking weed and pissing off the world and being way too undeservedly successful to watch YouTube.
I know we’ve been following the “Mischa Barton + Keds = True Love” story pretty hard so here’s the latest breaking news.
In this picture I believe she is wearing normal (acceptable) footwear. I could be off the mark here, as I don’t really know the whole Keds line. If I’m wrong I’ll take a comment ding. But if I’m right I want it known that I nailed her first.
Put your Keds back on! And eat something.
Next up, Adam Brody, Elisha Cuthbert, and Amber Tamblyn. These guys all look hot in their own little way, no? Brody is rocking a full fledged adult male thing and somehow the slightly stoned vibe makes Elisha work for me. Plus I’m a sucker for redheads (Amber Tamblyn).
It should be noted that all these, again, are from the Coachella event. The fact checker (whom I’m on the phone with now) tells me that this event is in Indio, California and features music acts. There seems to be a charity angle as well. So all you guys near Indio (home of the Indio High Rajahs) hustle on down to see both music and Scarlett’s cow legs.
