The NATURAL BORN KILLERS director says, "We're Hollywood wackos and all that stuff, left-wing... (It's) an easy and facile dismissal. "I'm still a citizen, I've served my country as a veteran, I've had many jobs before the film business. I know something of life, having lived to this age. "We have a right to speak and every time we speak: 'You're an actor, a showbusiness director,' we're making it up! "This is not a way of dealing with people. This is slander."
First of all Oliver you do have a right to speak (and you do) over and over and over again. Do you think though people some times resent the fact you use your other talents to make us listen to your opinions which is -not- what we pay you for
then the other thing
Law. Oral communication of false statements injurious to a person's reputation.
Is the fact you are actors/actresses and hollywood leftwingers false? no it surely isn't. Is it damaging to your reputation...not really. you can still work and say things.
A false and malicious statement or report about someone.
Ok the key to that definition is Malice....
1. A desire to harm others or to see others suffer; extreme ill will or spite.
2. Law. The intent, without just cause or reason, to commit a wrongful act that will result in harm to another.
Other then the Dixie chick (who did it to herself) I've yet to see a celebrity harmed by it
so Malice is out
