Christian Bale thanks Satan in his Golden Globes speech!

Christian Bale picked up a Golden Globe on Sunday night, and in the process of accepting the award, threw a jab at the real-life man he portrayed in “Vice” – former Vice President Dick Cheney. He also took a shot at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration on how to play this role,” Bale said during his acceptance speech for Best Actor in in a Musical or Comedy.

The actor thanked director Adam McKay for choosing him to play a person that is “absolutely charisma-free.”

“Thank you to that geezer over there, Adam,” Bale teased. “He said ‘I’ve got to find someone who can be absolutely charisma-free and reviled by everybody.’ So he went, ‘That’s gotta be Bale,'” the Welsh actor joked.

“For all the competition, I will be cornering the market on charisma-free a**h***s,” Bale continued. “What do you think, Mitch McConnell next?” The crowd cheered at the joke taking aim at the Senate majority leader. Bale made a similar joke during an interview with “CBS This Morning” last month. Bale and McKay spoke about the movie’s depiction of Cheney and the choice of Bale to play the former VP.

“At which point do you start thinking about Christian? While you were writing it or while you’re reading it?” co-anchor John Dickerson asked.

“When Dick Cheney’s described as a man lacking any charisma, right?” Bale joked. “That was when you went, ‘Oh, gotta be Bale.'”

Bale, who is known for physically transforming himself for roles, gained 40 pounds to play the former vice president. The dark comedy spans 50 years of Dick Cheney’s rise to power, from wild nights and bar fights as a youth in Wyoming to a Washington insider who became the most powerful vice president in history.

During his Globes speech, Bale also thanked his wife for telling him “less is more,” and then thanked his children, whom he jokingly called “Banana and Burrito.” Bale has referred to his kids by these fake names before – seemingly a joke on the outrageous names some celebrities choose for their babies.

At the end of his acceptance speech, Bale thanked his costars, including Amy Adams, who played his on-screen wife, Lynne Cheney. After thanking others, he turned to his wife in the audience and asked “Am I missing anything, darling?” which received more laughter from the crowd.

Explosive Facebook Memo Defended Company’s Strategy, Even If It Got People Killed!

A top Facebook executive wrote an internal memo in 2016 that defended the company’s growth as necessary and justified, even if the social network was used to bully someone to death or help plan a terrorist attack.

The leaked document, obtained by BuzzFeed News and published Thursday, was written by Vice President Andrew “Boz” Bosworth. Titled “The Ugly,” Bosworth roundly defended Facebook’s acquisition of user data, what he calls “all the questionable contact importing practices” and “all the subtle language that helps people stay searchable by friends.”

“We connect people. Period. That’s why all the work we do in growth is justified,” he wrote. “All of the work we do to bring more communication in. The work we will likely have to do in China some day. All of it.”

He continued: “That can be bad if they make it negative. Maybe it costs someone a life by exposing someone to bullies. Maybe someone dies in a terrorist attack coordinated on our tools.”

“And still we connect people.”

Bosworth acknowledged that he wrote the memo but said he no longer agrees with the post today and “didn’t agree with it even when I wrote it.” He is seen as an outspoken figure at Facebook, the outlet reported, known for being blunt.

“why did you write a post you don’t agree with?” It was intended to be provocative. This was one of the most unpopular things I’ve ever written internally and the ensuing debate helped shape our tools for the better.

“The purpose of this post … was to bring to the surface issues I felt deserved more discussion,” he said. “Having a debate around hard topics like these is a critical part of our process, and to do that effectively we have to be able to consider even bad ideas.”

The document showcases Facebook executives’ awareness of its power, both good and bad, years before the company was embroiled in controversy over the misuse of user data. Earlier this month, The New York Times reported that the data firm Cambridge Analytica misused the data of 50 million people, prompting calls for Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg to testify before Congress.

Zuckerberg decried the memo in a statement released Thursday, saying it was something he “disagreed with strongly.”

“Boz is a talented leader who says many provocative things,” he said in the statement. “This was one that most people at Facebook including myself disagreed with strongly. We’ve never believed the ends justify the means.”

Martin Lawrence wanders L.A. with loaded gun, screaming at passing cars in 1996!

 

(Originally published by the Daily News on May 8, 1996. This story was written by Michelle Caruso and Jere Hester.)

Comic Martin Lawrence was found wandering in a busy Los Angeles street yesterday — a loaded handgun in his pocket, yelling and “acting like a madman,” authorities and witnesses said.

The “You So Crazy” star was plucked from the intersection by cops, hospitalized and released to his doctor, who said Lawrence had failed to take prescribed medication and had suffered a seizure, according to police.

But a publicist’s statement issued later quoted Lawrence’s doctor, William Young of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, as saying the star was suffering from “complete exhaustion and dehydration.”

Cedars-Sinai spokesman Ron Wise said last night that Lawrence had been admitted into a regular medical ward there in fair condition. Asked about the police statement that Lawrence had stopped taking some sort of medication, Wise said, “I don’t know anything about that.”

The bawdy 30-year-old star of Fox TV’s “Martin” quipped, “I always told everybody they’d be coming for me some day,” as cops were about to grab him, sources said.

Police did not say whether the handgun was licensed, but said authorities were considering filing misdemeanor charges against the Queens reared TV and movie star for carrying a concealed weapon.

Witnesses and cops said Lawrence ran into the bustling intersection of Tyrone Ave. and Ventura Blvd. — the main drag of the Sherman Oaks neighborhood — about 12:30 p.m. and began yelling at passing cars.

“He was yelling, ‘Fight you know, don’t give up, fight the power,’ or something like that,” witness Aaron Berg told Los Angeles’ KCAL-TV. “He was shouting some obscenities or something. The police were forcefully putting their arms around him, like trying to hold him down, because he was fighting so much and yelling. He was like a madman. I was like, ‘That’s Martin Lawrence.’ I couldn’t believe it.”

Police took Lawrence to Sherman Oaks Hospital before he was released to his doctor and admitted to Cedars-Sinai.

The star of the new movie, “A Thin Line Between Love & Hate,” frequently has raised eyebrows for his sexually explicit standup act.

But he’s said his marriage last year to former Miss Virginia-USA Patricia Southall and the birth of their daughter Jasmine, now 3 months old, has “mellowed” him.

“I’m more conscious of what I do,” Lawrence said in an interview last month. “I’ll be more conscious around her, my daughter.”

Lawrence, born on an Air Force base in Germany and raised in Queens and Maryland, achieved his greatest notoriety in 1994 when he made unscripted jokes about sex and feminine hygiene during a raunchy “Saturday Night Live” monologue.
