What has happened to this used to be quiet conservative actor. Now he is in the paper and on the net with so much controversy. I saw him at the JFK airport asked for a picture with him and he started screaming that he was a celebrity and didn't have time to waste on taking a photo with a nobody. what a shock for me and my family. He was one of my favorites, not any more he has turned into a mean old man. Maybe the epilsepy is wearing him down, or the medication. I try to excuse him, but then I hear he is out picking up hookers for the night. He has turned into a bitter ugly broke old man right in our faces. My family will still lift him in prayer; he is LOST.

I used to worked at the Hilton here in downtown Caracas, and he stays there a lot. I know why he was fighting the photogragher in London. Americans would be shocked to see what he has in and out of his hotel room at the Hilton. Can you say NASTY NASTY NASTY. I hope he travels with boxes and boxes of tough condoms. He is a rough old man, always grumbling around the hotel about who he is. But he never has any money always at the hotel trying to get things for free. What has happened to him, he use to be my favorite actor.

Hola UK; Did you see the photo of the girl he was with in Cipriani's in London west end? She was so tired and worn, definitely a lady of the evening. Had to be.. she looked awful and he was so shocked to see the camera taking his picture with her that is why he start fighting. He should be ashamed. He is pitiful.

A few years ago I meet Danny Glover when he did a free recitation of the Paul Robeson speech at the anniversary of Paul Robeson Peace Arch Concert of 1952, when the US government prevented Robeson to leave the states for a Vancouver concert. Mr. Glover was extremely accommodating in the drizzle to all those who lined up for photos and autographs.

I think that we should give celebrities their own space when they are on the own time.

I keep reading about all these different women old Glover is running around with. I heard that he is inflatuated with a West African dancer named Esalama Arty Dourf, from a Oakland dance theater. This African sister works in his production company also. I think this brother needs to cool his heels, prayer would sho'nuch be good. He is looking old and raggedy lately. Looks like he is very sick, very very sick. Pray for his emotional recovery from disrespecting sisters and physical recovery from his illness.

I just watched him the other night on the BET Awards during a tribute to Harry Belafonte and he got a Lifetime Achievement from them like 2 years back maybe, but he looked aged and ragged and haggard and while I don't know him personally I was worried (so much so that I came online to find a clue about his health and life that would shed some light on why he looked the way he did) and it was clear that his health has declined quickly over the last three years and dramatically just looking at his teeth (he seemed to be wearing uncomfortable dentures or something) at any rate reading the postings above I am reading about epilepsy and prstitutes and all I can do is pray. He is a giant talent who is going through a rough period ...he is in Dreamgirls (the movie) and maybe we will get a glimpse of the Danny we once knew (and still love)

Go to the GAY PRIDE website and see Glover long passionate kiss with Harry. There are a lot of sisters sick to their stomachs right now. He is so out of the closet now; everybody knows why he has been looking so old & sick lately.

Go to google and search "Danny Glover Gay Pride" and all of your questions will be answered about why he has aged so quickly.

I was talking to Danny just a couple days ago (on set), and he looked fine to me. Sure he's aged,(we all do), but I was kind of under the impression that he was handling the whole thing rather gracefully.

He's currently shooting a new film called "Poor Boy's Game".

I went to the gay pride website and what do you know, Danny Glover and Harry Belafonte passionately kissing. It is now clear why he has aged and looks so sick. We thought it was due to his playboy romping with so many women including his assistant Esailama Arty the dancer. Looks like he swings both ways. That's Hollyweird.

OK, have it your way(s).

I just don't understand why the man's sexuality would impact his appearance in the manner described above.

Hell, Richard Simmons (for example), still looks the same way he did 25 years ago... so what's up with that?

He is also a TRADER to the United States. Regardless of what you think if Bush - He is still the President. Why would you want to take photos and support the DICTATOR that called any one of our Presidents the Devil?

YES HE IS NOT ACTING LIKE A TYPICAL BLACK AMERICAN HERO THAT HE SHOULD BE. I THINK THAT HANGING OUT WITH HARRY BELAFONTE (TYPICAL ANGRY JAMAICAN) IS NEGATIVELY INFLUENCING HIM. HE NEEDS TO KEEP BETTER COMPANY.
1st of all, both these men are greater heroes then you seem to realize. They are both incredible advocates for civil and humanitarian causes, and have done a lot of good throughout their careers. 2nd, both men are american, and your "typical angry jamaican" comment is completely ignorant. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Glover at a reception held for the president of Haiti by the embassador. I found him to be a very pleasant and intelligent man. Which is far more than I can say for you.
