Pearce Urges Australians To Support Films

Actor GUY PEARCE has criticised his fellow Australians for their limited support of the nation's films - insisting they should disregard the influence of audiences abroad. The LA CONFIDENTIAL star says the people of his homeland need to trust their own judgement, instead of waiting for international approval. He says, "We need to be told by people overseas that our films are good. Australians will then go, 'Yeah, proud! Australian movie! Yeah!' But only because they have been told that by the French. "People would much rather watch JULIA ROBERTS 27 times than take a punt on an Australian movie."
