Taking Names: Sarandon under fire for calling pope a Nazi
Question of the Day
Sarandon under fire for calling pope a Nazi
Catholic and Jewish groups are condemning actress Susan Sarandon for referring to Pope Benedict XVI as a Nazi.
The Associated Press reports the head of the Catholic League said her comment was “obscene” and the Anti-Defamation League called on the actress to apologize to Catholics for the “deeply offensive” remark.
Miss Sarandon, who won an Academy Award for her role in the 1995 anti-death-penalty film, “Dead Man Walking,” made the comment during an interview Saturday at the Hamptons Film Festival on Long Island.
As first reported by Newsday, Miss Sarandon said she gave a copy of the book on which the film is based to the pope, adding, “The last one, not this Nazi one we have now.”
A telephone call to Miss Sarandon’s representative asking for comment was not immediately returned.
Lohan’s probation revoked after community service issue
Lindsay Lohan sported a new accessory after a judge revoked her probation: handcuffs.
The actress was escorted from a hearing Wednesday in handcuffs after Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner revoked her probation because she was ousted from a community service assignment at a women’s shelter.
Bail was set at $100,000.
“There has been violation after violation,” Judge Sautner said.
A city prosecutor said the actress should be jailed, but the judge said she was entitled to a probation violation hearing.
The recommendation is the latest legal problem for the 25-year-old Lohan, who was given probation for a 2007 drunken driving case and a misdemeanor theft case this year.
Judge Sautner set a Nov. 2 hearing to decide whether the actress warrants another return to jail, where she has been sent four previous times only to be released early due to jail overcrowding.
“If jail meant something in the state of California now, maybe I’d put her in jail,” Judge Sautner said.
