A real class act!

Another "artist" exempt from following outdated common standards of appropriate behavior. Oh to be one of the self absorbed privileged class.Decency and respect are SO cumbersome and intrusive.

Both beat me to the punch (no pun)line. You can tell she was raised in Vermont. Not hard to play yourself.

Anybody who pays enough attention to Hollywood antics to actually care? Deserves to be offended.
Get a life.

When its broadcast all over the world,its hard not to notice. Whats most offensive is a having a clueless stooge like Leo emphatically stating,"its about respecting the work" demanding respect for her play acting,moments after exhibiting a monumental lack of respect to millions. I suppose nothing else can be expected from entertainers.NYC hippies who fled to Vermont to get back to nature produced Leo,thats shocking as well.

Watching TV is NOT mandatory, even slightly. You choose to immerse yourself in entertainment hours out of every day? Deal with the consequences.
The 'morality' here is so out of whack here anyways. In Europe you can see *gasp* naked breasts on TV sometimes. But you know what you can't see? Somebody getting shot in the head point blank.
But that's completely reversed here: murder on prime-time? Ok. Natural human body on prime-time? Bad.
Which influence is really more damaging for our people? Sick.
But, old patterns die hard. The average American now watches 5+ hours of TV a day! It sounds insane, but look it up. Gladiator games ... Rome in its last days.

Strange how the local media missed the "f" bomb on stage by Leo or is that the "Putney etiquette" or not offensive in the star world of Putney dreaming.
