Disappointing News: Mixed Race Hispanic Actress Zoe Saldana Steals Nina Simone Lead Role Meant For A Black American Actress!!!

This casting news is so disgusting I think I am going to vomit! Zoe Saldana looks nothing like Nina Simone she wasn’t a mixed race Latina she’s was an authentic black American woman. Nina Simone wasn’t mulatto, mixed race, half white, half caste, biracial, or whatever you want to call it. Nina Simone was a proud black woman!
For black women in Hollywood, the closer a black actress or biracial actress skin tone is to the white image of beauty the better opportunities she gets. Saldana markets herself as a Hispanic actress NOT as a black American actress so it is extremely hypocritical for Saldana to take this important film role.
Ten years ago, Halle Berry was the A list black actress she also is half white.
Since Zoe Saldana is mixed race and considered lighter skinned she’s viewed as more marketable to white audiences in America and overseas.
However, where does this leave the talented darker skinned black actresses in Hollywood?
Saldana got the part for Nina Simone because Hollywood has anointed her as the new A list black actress.
However, Nina Simone was a very political she wasn’t just a singer she was a civil rights activist in the 1960s. Simone sang passionate songs about black rights such as Mississippi God damn, and Young, Gifted, & Black.
 Saldana is part black but she certainly isn’t proud of her black roots! Last year, when Colombiana was released all Saldana talked about in interviews was Latin this and Latin that.
Saldana is a chameleon, she plays with race and culture when it is convenient to advance her own career. Since Saldana is mixed race she uses race to her advantage whenever it is convenient to advance her career.
Nina Simone was a dark skinned black woman she was a proud black woman I bet she’s spinning in her grave right now!
Also, Saldana hasn’t proven she’s that great an actress. Yes, Saldana has appeared in Avatar and Star Trek but she isn’t a great actress.
There is a paucity of leading lady roles for black females in Hollywood so Hollywood thinks choosing a mixed race Hispanic is the way to go?
Why couldn’t Zoe Saldana follow Halle Berry’s lead? When Aretha Franklin wanted Halle to be the star of the biopic about her life Halle said no!
Halle knew the black community would be in an uproar if a half white actress was chosen to to the star in a film about the Queen of Soul music!
Now, Zoe Saldana has a history of talking about being proud of her Latin roots in interviews while stealing film roles meant for black actresses.
Remember,  Star Trek, Uhura is a black woman but since Hollywood is focused on profit the studio chose Saldana. This is a slap in the face to all the hard working black women in Hollywood!
I think Viola Davis, Anika Noni Rose,  India Arie, or some other black American actress would be the perfect choice for this biopic. I am so angry and disgusted I feel like screaming at the top of my lungs!

Blind Item: Rumours Are That A List Star Will Smith Is Bisexual & Into Dangerous Homo Thugs!!!

Thug Life    

 What married-with-kids A-list movie star has his faithful assistant help him find dates with men on a gay s*x website that caters to guys who like Latino and African- American gangster-types? The actor, who has long been rumored to swing both ways, has a k*nky penchant for prison thugs!

 My Guess: Will Smith
Clues: Will Smith is married he is an A list black superstar and for many years rumours persist he is bisexual. In addition, a few months ago an American tabloid insinuated that Will Smith was having an affair with another married actor Duane Martin. In fact, earlier this year Will and Duane went on an exotic vacation to Trinidad and Tobago together without their wives.

Intense Gay Sex Scene Leonardo Dicaprio & David Thewlis From 1995 Film Total Eclipse.

In the year 1995, Leonardo Dicaprio and David Thewlis starred in the independent drama Total Eclipse. I remember the first time I watched Total Eclipse on cable television. I was surprised that Leo took on this role because this was before he became a superstar.  Although Total Eclipse didn’t get the praise or media attention like Brokeback Mountain I think Total Eclipse is the superior film. Total Eclipse is a love story about two French poets in the late nineteenth century France. Perhaps, the mainstream media wasn’t ready for such a powerful gay film back in 1995?

You Tube Gay Kissing Scenes From J Edgar Movie: Leonardo Dicaprio & Armie Hammer Fight & Make Out with each other!!!

I am just not impressed with the gay scenes from the biopic J Edgar I feel the movie wasn’t gay enough.  Let me know what you think? Do you think the J Edgar biopic was or wasn’t gay enough?  I think the first scene when Armie Hammer’s character tells J Edgar he loves him is tender. However, I don’t like the fight scene I feel it is bit too pretentious. Where is the gay passion?  There is only one gay kiss in the entire film. Where are the gay sex scenes? The audience needed to see J Edgar and Clyde in bed together. The movie suggests the love between J Edgar and Clyde is an unrequited love which I don’t believe.

One argument is, the movie is discussing Edgar’s sexual repression due to the time period. However, I find it hard to believe that J Edgar and Clyde did not have a homosexual relationship. Where is the gay sex? I think Hollywood is so homophobic that there is still a reticence to exploring the sexual aspect of male homosexuality.

When J Edgar Hoover died in 1972,  he left his entire estate worth $3 million dollars to Clyde Tolson. In fact, when Clyde died in 1975 he was buried close to J Edgar’s grave. I think the screenwriter Dustin Lance Black  and Clint Eastwood were afraid of upsetting the heterosexual audience due to marketing reasons. The facts are J Edgar Hoover was a crossdresser and a homosexual. J Edgar and Clyde did everything together they worked together, took vacations together, and Edgar even took photos of Clyde sleeping. It is ludicrous that the movie doesn’t explore the homosexuality enough. I think the movie needed to be more gay.
