Suicide Girl: Ewww. Who the hell is that? Henry Kissinger?
Or so I imagine that’s what happened when Woody Allen was interviewed by Suicide Girls, the Web site that features young, scantily clad, tattooed, and pierced women (hey Muffti, wasn’t ol’ what’s her face from RI a suicide girl?). The subject of the interview was of course Woody’s new movie Melinda and Melinda. Why would a world renowned
dirty old man film maker submit to an interview by what is essentially a porn site? Wait, why did I even ask that? I did mention close proximity to hot, tattooed and pierced babes, right? Besides, Soon Yi is now what? At least 25 – she’s practically Yoko Ono.
Anyhow, Woody shares this nugget of wisdom – apparently Jews are not innately funny:
It’s a misconception based on the fact that there were many Jewish comedians that came out of the Catskills. But Bob Hope, Buster Keaton or WC Fields weren’t Jewish and they were great comedians. Charlie Chaplin was half Jewish, so which half? Peter Sellers was half. So there are some fabulous Jewish comedians, but there are many that are not. I don’t think it’s a particularly Jewish thing. There was that rush of borscht circuit comedians that came out of that specific milieus. I was raised in a Jewish neighborhood and household so naturally my idiom is where I grew up.
Thanks Woody! Thanks Suicide Girls?
