ThisisLondonquotes actor/nutcase Kevin Spacey, (an apt surname, I think) complainng about people making noises in the movie theatre…:

“That’s why mobile phones go off in the theatre, and that’s why people open candy bars thinking if they open it slowly it will be less annoying than if they open it fast.
‘My answer is that I say to each audience ‘Don’t!’. You have to respect the fact there is some degree of behaviour that we expect in the theatre and we’re going to demand it at the Old Vic.
‘It’s a phone free zone. We don’t want them ringing and we certainly don’t want them ringing and people ignoring them pretending that it’s not theirs.’ “

And they say Hollywood types are disconnected from the rest of us.

First, Kevin, I’ve got a newsflash for you; you’re just not that important. Life continues to go on in spite of not because of, your earthshattering attempts at acting.

Secondly, with the audio systems at the average theatre being cranked up loud enough to cover the launch of the Space Shuttle, I tend to doubt that a cell phone or a candy wrapper is going to make much of a difference.

Kevin, do you really consider your connection with the audience to be that fragile? Talk about in insecurity complex….
