Why Hollywood is scared shitless of Twitter — and why wanting to be a big Hollywood star is a big waste of time.

Since DW Griffith first stepped off the train, Hollywood has devoted itself to one cherished goal that it has always kept close to its heart: making sure actors never, ever speak directly to the public. Since the first days of entertainment, no “talent” has ever opened their mouth without a phalanx of handlers on hand to craft their every word and prepared to lower the muzzle at the first sign of truth telling.

So to my actor friends I ask you, do you still dream of “making it” in Hollywood, when all you have to look forward to is being someone’s mouthpiece for their shit film…?
