Michael Douglas, who won an Oscar for playing fictional Wall Street wizard Gordon Gekko, took questions on Wednesday about the financial woes going down on Wall Street. He was there to urge the US and eight other countries to ratify a nuclear test ban treaty. Yahoo reports:
“After world leaders here condemned the “boundless greed” of world markets, Douglas was asked to compare nuclear Armageddon with the “financial on Wall Street.”
But the likening to Gekko did not end there, with a reporter asking: “Are you saying Gordon that greed is not good?”
“I’m not saying that,” Douglas replied. “And my name is not Gordon. He’s a character I played 20 years ago.”
This fucking idiot reporter is referring to people by fictional characters… in front of world leaders… at a UN covention about nuclear testing. What the hell is wrong with this slow individual? He probably refers to Morgan Freeman and 8 other actors that have played the role as “Mr. President”, much like I do with my penis.
