Hurray for Hollywood!

It never ceases to amaze when something good and supportive happens, and it doesn’t make the mainstream news. Ok, so the LA Times is pretty mainstream, but since I don’t read it, I had to find out about it via the Australians…

That being said, this is awesome:

Kidman condemns Hamas, Hezbollah | Herald Sun

The actress, joined by 84 other high-profile Hollywood stars, directors, studio bosses and media moguls, has taken out a powerfully-worded full page advertisement in today’s Los Angeles Times newspaper.

It specifically targets “terrorist organisations” such as Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Palestine.

“We the undersigned are pained and devastated by the civilian casualties in Israel and Lebanon caused by terrorist actions initiated by terrorist organisations such as Hezbollah and Hamas,” the ad reads.

“If we do not succeed in stopping terrorism around the world, chaos will rule and innocent people will continue to die.

“We need to support democratic societies and stop terrorism at all costs.”

A who’s who of Hollywood heavyweights joined Kidman on the ad.

The actors listed included: Michael Douglas, Dennis Hopper, Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Danny De Vito, Don Johnson, James Woods, Kelly Preston, Patricia Heaton and William Hurt.

A whole list of leading men and ladies who’s movies I’d actually pay to watch. Excellent!
