I read that this morning and thought WTF!

Janos Thu 11-Sep-08 14:27:46

Actually, maybe she could join a terroriust group? With that level of thinking, I'm sure she'd manage to blow herself up fairly sharpish. No loss.

I did think to myself "If the film had been about Al Quaeda would she have wanted to join them?"

Alambil Thu 11-Sep-08 14:36:25

She's really rather thick isn't she?

What an utterly idiotic thing to say

Whatever happens; don't let her speak after seeing Boy in the Striped Pyjamas ffs.

LazyLinePainterJane Thu 11-Sep-08 14:40:27

Have you heard her talk about anything thougH? She is an idiot...

MorningTownRide Thu 11-Sep-08 14:41:19

LewisFan - you reckon she'd say "I would have joined the Third Reich?"

Ronaldinhio Thu 11-Sep-08 20:40:01

what a fucking idiot

Chequers Thu 11-Sep-08 20:42:56

I've never heard of her.

AuraofDora Thu 11-Sep-08 21:06:19

maybe she is a fan of jenny tong grin

remember many americans contributed to coffers of ira its not such a shocking comment
it was a war
people take sides, the very lifeblood of war

freedom fighter / terrorist, just depends what side you are on

fryalot Thu 11-Sep-08 21:08:57

wonder if george dubya will invade her and bomb her out of existence as part of his war on terror hmm

FlippingFlip Thu 11-Sep-08 21:10:58

Oh, sthose adorable yanks and their romanticism of the IRA <pats stupid, ignorant yanks on the head>

Jux Thu 11-Sep-08 21:30:29

Yet another silly bint commenting about stuff she doesn't understand.

TinkerBellesMum Thu 11-Sep-08 21:45:35

If it's got her in it I won't be seeing it anyway - how many years was she in Charmed and I don't think I saw her act once hmm

I'm appalled at her comments, someone needs to give her a good talking to, I hope her agent realises what she's done - fast!

She probably thinks she's an expert because she's been in a film about it and thinks it was as simple as the film shows (cause they can't have shown it in it's full gory glory can they?) I like the comments from the guy who's story it is.

I remember living in Canada McD was boycotted by a lot of people because the American side gave financial backing to the IRA. I did find it kind of funny (in an ironic way) that they got a doorstep bomb.

SlartyBartFast Thu 11-Sep-08 21:49:26

i thought plenty of americans were pro ira anyway>?

Piffle Thu 11-Sep-08 21:53:06

you were either for the ira or for the British remember?
She has read a bit and heard a bit and what she Probably means is that she supports what the IRA were fighting for. But abhors their methods.
While being similarly appalled at the British treatment of Nationalists.
But she ain't as eloquent prob spent too much time in the US surrounded by luvvies.

SlartyBartFast Thu 11-Sep-08 21:55:21

there definitely have been other hollywood actors For the IRA

"Ms McGowan said: "Violence is not to be played out daily and provide an answer to problems, but I understand it."'

Does this imply that she thinks occasional violence is OK (as opposed to everyday violence)

Piffle Thu 11-Sep-08 21:59:34

simply that she sees why they choose it
As many have...
Ditto Palestine
Understanding why is not colluding in the violence per se

mabanana Thu 11-Sep-08 22:00:34

Didn't she go out with that Marilyn Manson idiot? And wear dresses with her bottom hanging out?
Ah yes she did

2shoes Thu 11-Sep-08 22:07:41

dozy tart

"She has read a bit and heard a bit and what she Probably means is that she supports what the IRA were fighting for. But abhors their methods."

Yeah, I expect those were her exact thought processes.


Janos Fri 12-Sep-08 11:14:08

Yes SBF - I recall Brad Pitt (moron) making a similar moronic comment some years back.

And I'd imagine there's plenty of others too.
