Actor bemoans era of the 'celebutard' and slams critics for focusing on actors' personal lives instead of their acting

Nicolas Cage has said film critics must try harder to ignore an actor's fame when reviewing movies, or risk contributing to a culture where artists are known only for their celebrity and not their work in front of the camera.
Speaking at the SXSW festival in Austin, Cage lamented his own notoriety and the way it affected how his films are perceived. The actors who inspired him to learn his art, he suggested, didn't face the same indignity.
"I started acting because I wanted to be James Dean," Cage told an audience of journalists. "I saw him in Rebel Without a Cause, East of Eden. Nothing affected me – no rock song, no classical music – the way Dean affected in 'Eden'. »

During the hour-long session, Cage talked about how his desire to become an actor stemmed from watching James Dean in “East of Eden” and “Rebel Without a Cause.” He then proceeded to discuss eloquently how film criticism has deteriorated and why it “sucks to be famous” nowadays.
Here are his quotes in full from the interactive festival:
“I started acting because I wanted to be James Dean. I saw him in “Rebel Without a Cause,” “East of Eden.” Nothing affected me — no rock song, no classical music — the way Dean affected in “Eden.” It blew my mind. I was like, “That’s what I want to do.” This was before everyone had a thing called a Smartphone, and before »

To mark the release of Fire in the Blood on 24th March, we’ve been given 2 copies to give away on DVD.
Fire In The Blood is a critically-acclaimed documentary of medicine, monopoly and malice that tells the story of how Western pharmaceutical companies and governments aggressively blocked access to low-cost AIDS drugs for the countries of Africa and the global south in the years after 1996. The film investigates how this caused over ten million unnecessary deaths and the improbable group of people who decided to fight back.
Fire In The Blood was shot on four continents and tells its remarkable story through the eyes of AIDS patients, front-line clinicians, radical health professionals, pharmaceutical company executives and global figures including Bill Clinton, Desmond Tutu and Joseph Stiglitz. It is the never-before-told true story of the remarkable coalition which came together to stop ‘the Crime of the Century’ and save millions of lives in the process. »

Digital Spy readers have had their say on the end of Outnumbered.
BBC One's popular sitcom drew to a close last night after almost seven years on air, pulling in 4.3m viewers.
But was drawing a line under the Brockman family saga after five series and a handful of one-off specials a smart move or a dire decision? Here's what DS commenters think.
Outnumbered should return
Jbarbor - "Tonight's final episode was brilliant. A good final farewell. It would be nice to see Christmas specials still produced though, just to see how the family continues to develop as new issues come to light."
Gleek1997 - "Tonight's episode was amazing and a great reminder of why I loved Outnumbered so much! While this series hadn't been the best, tonight showed the show's real charm and I think proved that it has the potential for a few specials at least."

From Jack leching over Jennifer to John Wayne's farewell and Brando's no-show, these are just some of the greatest moments at the Oscars ceremonies ever
1. When Jack met Jennifer
This is perhaps my favourite Oscar moment ever, and it is from last year: the 85th Academy Awards in 2013. Tellingly, it does not take place up on stage, in the often tense and frozen ritual of the awards ceremony itself, but happens in the cheerful buzz of the post-show melee backstage. This single, endlessly replayed clip probably did more for Jennifer Lawrence's public profile than anything on the big screen.
George Stephanopoulos, the former Bill Clinton aide who later made a career in TV, was conducting on-the-hoof interviews for ABC and had grabbed 22-year-old Lawrence to talk about her best actress Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook. The »
