James Woods Criticizes Obama, Says He Doesn’t Expect To Find Work In Hollywood Again
“I want to keep giving Latinos the chance to work both in front of and behind the cameras, and to create content through my network,” the 45-year-old movie maker told Efe. “These newcomers should be able show what they can do without depending on Hollywood, where it’s really hard to get started,” he said. The writer of films like “El Mariachi,” “Desperado,” the kiddie saga “Spy Kids” and “Sin City” – whose sequel will debut next summer – premieres this Saturday the sequel of “Machete,” which was such a success that it took its own creator by surprise. While for the original film Rodriguez worked with such headliners as Robert De Niro, Jessica Alba, Steven Seagal and Lindsay Lohan, this time he’s going all out by adding to the cast Lady Gaga, Mel Gibson, Sofia Vergara, Demian Bichir, Charlie Sheen, Antonio Banderas and more. “The idea of a Latino action superhero in a ‘Mexploitation’ film – with a low budget and elements of exploitation film and Mexican culture – was overwhelming. I thought it would go directly to a DVD but it unexpectedly took off,” he said. Danny Trejo, 69, repeats his role as Hollywood’s first Latino superhero, a one-time federal agent recruited by the president of the United States to nab a revolutionary and an arms dealer who have joined forces to plunge the world into chaos. “I didn’t have a lot of time, but the screenplay was such fun I wanted to make it mine before shooting ‘Sin City 2.’ I did it really fast, in 29 days. I wanted to have a good time with the actors,” the filmmaker said, who doesn’t hesitate to combine wild humor and violence whatever the critics might say. Follow us on twitter.com/foxnewslatino

This President is a true abomination. To have barricaded the WW2 vets, but allow illegal aliens privilege… Woods tweeted on Oct. 8. But Woods, 66, was just warming up. The actor also called Obama just vile. A small, small man. That prompted one of his followers to ask if the actor was concerned his political views would affect his ability to find gainful employment in Hollywood. Dude, aren’t u worried about…u know..ever working again?? the Twitter user asked him. Woods replied: I dont expect to work again. I think Barack Obama is a threat to the integrity and future of the Republic. My country first. But Woods didn’t stop with the situation at the memorials.

She also revealed who was one of her favorite fellow funny gals in Tinseltown to watch on screen. “I watch Julia Louis-Dreyfus on ‘Veep,’ and she is so good, because she is playing the world’s biggest a–hole narcissist, and yet you can’t take your eyes off of her. In fact, you still strangely like her and almost want to hang with her.” Brunette beauty Cruz, 39, told the mag the best industry advice she has ever received.

You’re going to have to put a lot of your time into a project, and you have to know if it’s something you really feel connected with, because it’s not a job you can do like you press a button – no.” RELATED: ‘DIVERGENT’ TRAILER DEBUTS DURING THE VMAS PRE-SHOW Woodley, 21, explained to Elle how she stays true to herself in the Hollywood scene. “There’s nothing like walking into a meeting and people expecting me to shake hands, and you hug them. For me, a hug is to disregard all of that bullshit and be like, This is me, Shai. This is who I am. Now let’s talk about real situations. Let’s not talk about all this surface-level stuff.” As far as what is next for the young Hollywood star, she said, “I’m so young, and I’m single. And I just want to drift.” “I’m just going to be a drifter. I want to do something totally different before ‘Insurgent’ [the second film in the ‘Divergent’ trilogy].
