"You know, it’s really none of my business." Then don't tell me ...
What exactly makes people in Hollywood belive they are so smart and why in the the world should I care what they think? I think this tid bit from an interview with Jessica Alba pretty much sums up what I'm saying ...
One of my co-workers wanted me to ask you out on a date for him.
You have to be really, really smart if you’re going to go on a date with me. That’s the only problem.
What does he need to know about you?
I’ve been all over the world. I’ve been working since I was 12. I’m not an idiot. I’m interested in all sorts of different things. I’m pretty educated on what’s going on in the rest of the world.
Are you political?
I definitely have my point of view.
What is that?
I can’t wait for Barack Obama to run for something. Cause I am voting.
Do you think he’ll be president in the future?
I sure hope so. I hope people are open-minded enough to have somebody like Barack.
What do you think of the war in Iraq?
You know, it’s really none of my business. I’m not fighting. I’m not in the Army. I’m not in any of the armed forces. I’m not Donald Rumsfeld. And I’m certainly not in Iraq—an Iraqi person who has to deal with all the bulls—t in my country. I’m not Afghani. I wouldn’t know what that reality is like, to sit in your home and to have soldiers raiding your house because they think your kid is a spy. And explosions happening at your kids’ schools. I don’t know if I could have a real educated opinion about it all. I just think it’s f—ked up, whatever’s happening over there.
Aparently you need to be 'real' smart to get a date with her, since she's 'pretty educated' on whats going on in the world.
She also likes Barack Obama and wishes '... he'd run for something. Cause I am voting.' Well actually Jessica he already did run for something, it's called the US Senate, they meet in that white building with the pointy thing on top in Washington, DC --- but I'm sure you've been there seeing that you've been around.
Yeah, I hope people are 'open-minded' 'nuff to vote for Barack --- cuz you'd have to be pretty close-minded to vote against him huh?
Further aparently the war in Iraq isn't any of your business --- but you sure do actually think is your business don't you? Or at least your opinion on the matter --- matters. That is pretty smart tho Jess ...
"I don’t know if I could have a real educated opinion about it all. I just think it’s f—ked up, whatever’s happening over there."
Yeah wow, profound.
