Quote from article:
"In the history of the motion-picture business, the number of beautiful, really beautiful women — a Lucille Ball — that are funny, is impossible to find.

So, does this make him a sexist asshole, or just an experienced movie exec.

Apparently, people are pissed about this.

People should be pissed that he thinks an obvious DQ Tranny like Lucille Ball is "really beautiful".

I think people should be pissed that he couldn't come up with Tina Fey, or Elizabeth Banks before he spoke. Both funny, both hot.

Well, he's actually right.
There are small pockets of time, like the Goldie Hawn movies in the late 70s/early 80s, where a funny female can have a movie built around her.
Hawn was like Fey or Mary Tyler Moore....'cute'.
Approachable.
Not like, say, Angelina Jolie, that would be considered "BEAUTIFUL".
But Jolie doesn't do comedy movies and isn't considered "funny".
Elizabeth Banks doesn't have movies built around her. Last film I can think of that was built around her was "Walk of Shame" which was seen by a grand total of a cozy half-dozen.
Bridesmaids was an ensemble cast and there was no one person carrying it.
Anna Farris is probably the closest to a Goldie Hawn, right now, but she doesn't open movies....not like, say....a Private Benjamin.

The closest you are going to find to a "beautiful funny woman" is Jennifer Anniston, who isn't really that funny. She's funny when she has someone really good to work off of, like Charlie Day in the Horrible Bosses stuff, but she's not FUNNY, like say Lisa Lampanelli funny.
Whitney Cummings is attractive and was funny in the roast I saw her on. Sarah Silverman *can* be funny, but isn't beautiful.

Conversely, most "handsome" men aren't funny and most funny guys aren't generally considered attractive. I think Eddie Murphy would probably have been the last leading man level of attractiveness that was funny.

The magic of filters and lighting still doesn't make her beautiful.

But thank you for proving my point that women aren't funny.

I agree, which is why nobody is faulting your fascination with gay icon Lucille Ball.

You are attracted to BBC. It's nothing to be ashamed of since you two could even get married in rebel flag underwear if you wanted to now.

I emphatically disagree. Coming to America and less so Bowfinger and Beverley Hills Cop were pretty good.

Steve Martin wrote Bowfinger you git.
Eddie stole the storyline to Coming To America and someone else wrote the screenplay.
He didn't provide material for BHC either.

He should have to. People have used his comments in a way he never intended. He needs to clarify.

I removed the 20 instances of the word fuck fucker and motherfucker to examine what his actual material consisted of.


Oh,Eddie, get the dog away from my plate. I'm gonna shoot this dog! I'm gonna shoot the mother - shut up! I'm gonna shoot it. Stop crying. Stop crying, Eddie, cause you'll get the hell out. You'll get the hell - I know your seven. I know your seven. But you'll be a seven-year-old-wakin-the-dog-with-no-house- so and so!
You know it is cause it's mine, and I hate this dog. Cause you never answer the dog, you don't spend time with the dog, Eddie! You dont feed the dog! You don't pet it! You even don't know the dog's name is anymore, do you? The dog dont give a crap cause he doesn't know his name. The dog is is three years old, dont know his name. Watch this. Coco? Where the hell is he going? The dog stupid cause you don't spend time with the dog. And I'm supposed to work hard all day and come home and feed the dog? hell no! I am not feeding the dog. You know, Eddie, when nobody's home, you know what I do? I walk to the dog and I kick him. I kicked the dog with everything I got, Eddie. I did and I giggled my ass off cause I hate the dog. Cause you don't clean up behind it. Why can't you clean up the dog - This aint Scooby Doo! Why can't you clean the dog? The dog shits all over the house and when no one tells you, Eddie, you dont clean the shit. You let the shit stay forever. This shit has been in the den for six months, Eddie. It has been in the den for six months and when you kids go passed it, you act like you dont see it unless you told you wont clean the shit. The shit is hard as a rock now. It's like furniture in there. I went in there last week to watch the fight and i said "screw it" and put my drink on top of it, Eddie. It's a coffee table now! Why cant you clean up shit! My friends came over and go "Oh, that's lovely" and I was like "That's not lovely, it's a piece of SHIT! Cause my children don't listen!"
