tom junod über matt damon:
And then he orders his second big beer ten minutes after his first.
die vier portraits von tom junod über 4 hollywood stars habe ich in den letzten tagen mit grossem vergnügen gelesen. mehrfach habe ich beinahe vergessen aus der ubahn auszusteigen. wunderbarer lesestoff und eine gute gelegenheit sich ein instapaper-konto anzulegen und die app zu besorgen. /kottke.org
esquire.com: The Moment Leonardo DiCaprio Became a Man #
tom junod über leonardo di caprio:
A few years ago, he was on a plane. He was flying to Russia. He was due to meet with Vladimir Putin at a conference Putin organized to help save the Siberian tiger. He's taken the tiger as his cause. He was on a Delta flight to Moscow. He often flies commercial, according to friends who say that, after all, he's just a regular guy. The flight had departed Kennedy and was already out over the ocean. He was looking out the window when he saw one of the engines explode.
esquire.com: A Life So Large #
tom junod über brad pitt:
He does not call himself an actor. On forms, he lists his occupation as self-employed. "I learned that from Bruce Paltrow," he says, referring to the father of his first famous girlfriend. "I always liked it. It's a humble way to describe what we do." And if a stranger on a plane were to ask what he does for a living, he would say, "Well, I'd be very Midwest about it, very Missouri. I'd say, This and that. I'd say, I'm a dad, just like you."
His answer shows how hard he tries not to be an asshole and how hard it is for a person as famous as he is not to sound like one. In fact, he hesitates to identify himself as an actor not for reasons of humility. He hesitates to identify himself as an actor because he considers himself primarily an artist, a doer, a maker, a craftsman, a man who felt the first thrill of artifice not onstage but in high school shop class, drawing up plans. He hesitates to identify himself as an actor because he is forthrightly interested in leaving a legacy much larger than the legacy of his performances, which, however meaningful, are simply not as concrete as houses and chairs and wine or as endlessly real as children. He likes the idea of being something more than an actor and he likes the idea of being something less than an actor.

tom junod über george clooney:
He is the president of a club of famous people he doesn't consider assholes, and he convenes it every time he makes a movie. He has made movies with Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Don Cheadle, Julia Roberts, and Cate Blanchett. He has never been in a movie with Leonardo DiCaprio or Russell Crowe.

sascha pallenberg anno 2011:
Es kommen inzwischen die ersten Stimmen auf, dass ich ja selber z.B. Amazon-Links auf meiner Seite nutze. Na klar mache ich das und es ist eine wichtige Einnahmequelle fuer mich. Der Unterschied ist, diese Links sind entsprechend als Amazon-Links gekennzeichnet und ich benutze diese Art Werbung sehr pro-aktiv, sprich ich weise explizit darauf hin. Nach dem Motto: Kauft über unsere Links und unterstützt uns. Ich würde mir wünschen, wenn Medien generell angeben müssten, wer sie unterstützt. Soweit ich weiss, ist dies für Blogger in den USA seit fast 2 Jahren verpflichtend.
den link, den sascha pallenberg auf facebook gepostet hat um referal-werbung für onlycoin.com zu machen (womit er maximal $50 verdienen könnte), hat er jedoch nicht „proaktiv“ oder „explizit“ gekennzeichnet. aber vielleicht ist der referal-code ja gar nicht von ihm, sondern von jemand anders. zum beispiel einem bedürftigen hippster.
