RFK Jr Arrested At White House For Keystone Pipeline Protest


Robert F Kennedy Taylor Swift Daryl Hannah

RFK Jr was arrested at the White House along with his son Conor Kennedy this week (Taylor Swift’s ex boyfriend). The Inquisitor reported that father and son were arrested during a climate change rally, protesting the Keystone XL pipeline. The Kennedys, along with actress Daryl Hannah and Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune, were detained for civil disobedience.

Robert F Kennedy, lawyer and president of the Waterkeeper Alliance, said in an emailed statement “It’s unfortunate that civil disobedience is the only recourse against a catastrophic and criminal enterprise that will enrich a few while impoverishing the rest of humanity and threatening the future of civilization.” This is not the first time that Robert Kennedy has been arrested for protesting. In 2001, he served 30 days in jail for trespassing, as part of a protest against Navy bombing exercises.

The planned Keystone XL Pipeline will funnel synthetic crude oil from Canada, to various areas of the United States. Since the project was first planned in 2008, it has faced several opposing lawsuits. The Sierra Club broke a ban on civil disobedience in order to join the protest, with Brune saying “For the first time in the Sierra Club’s 120-year history, we have joined the ranks of visionaries of the past and present to engage in civil disobedience, knowing that the issue at hand is so critical, it compels the strongest defensible action.” 48 people were arrested in total.

Emilio Estevez Martin Sheen Robert F Kennedy The Breakfast Club Sharon Stone Demi Moore Anthony Hopkins Helen Hunt

Emilio Estevez was thrilled to hear his movie BOBBY was nominated for two Golden Globe Awards yesterday (14DEC06) - and plans to celebrate the triumph with his actor father Martin Sheen.
Sheen is currently studying for a degree in English Literature at the National University Of Ireland in Galway, while his actor/director son lives in Los Angeles.
Estevez's movie about the assassination of Robert F Kennedy is up for Best Motion Picture - Drama and Best Original Song for NEVER GONNA BREAK MY FAITH.
The Breakfast Club star enthuses, "I'm having to pinch myself this morning. I'm really thrilled for my pop, too.
"The Hollywood Foreign Press has been a wonderful supporter of the film since our spectacular first screening in Venice, Italy."
Sheen stars alongside Sharon Stone, Demi Moore, SIR Anthony Hopkins, Helen Hunt and a host of other big names in the movie, which is directed and written by Estevez.

Lindsay Lohan's Bobby Character Only Met Her Husband Twice


Lindsay Lohan Elijah Wood Emilio Estevez Robert F Kennedy

The hotelier who Lindsay Lohan portrays in new movie BOBBY only met her soldier husband twice - the day they were married and the day they divorced.
DIANE HUBER wed an unknown soldier in the late 1960s in an effort to keep him from the front lines in Vietnam. Lohan plays Huber and Elijah Wood her frightened `husband' in the new Emilio Estevez movie.
Huber explains, "I had only met him the one day. We went to Los Angeles and got married. And two-and-a-half years later he came to the drugstore where I was working and handed me the annulment papers.
"So I saw him twice in my life - but it was probably the most successful marriage I've ever had."
Huber won herself a mention in Estevez's film after befriending the BREAKFAST CLUB star while he was working on the script for Bobby in her Pismo Beach, California hotel.
She told the actor/director that she had been at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles the night Robert F Kennedy, the leading subject of his film, was assassinated.

Kennedy Bodyguard Impacted By Bobby Film


Robert F Kennedy Emilio Estevez

The bodyguard caught up in the middle of the Robert F Kennedy assassination in 1968 has heaped praise on Emilio Estevez's new movie BOBBY, about the tragedy - he has already seen the film twice.
REV ROSEY GRIER was assigned to take care of Kennedy's wife ETHEL on the campaign trail as the Senator fought to become US President.
He was standing just feet away from Kennedy when he was gunned down at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, and actually appears in footage taken on the night that Estevez used in his film.
Grier admits he's stunned by the film and how realistic everything is: "I watched it and I was trying to get the pieces together... in each segment, where there was like an individual piece, that all came together. It was a puzzle.
"It really impacted me when it all came together in the end. It was really dynamite. I had to hold myself together, because it was that powerful."

Estevez: 'Demi Moore's Boozy Singer Is Not Tee-total Clooney'


Emilio Estevez Demi Moore Rosemary Clooney White Christmas Robert F Kennedy

Actor/director Emilio Estevez has killed reports suggesting the boozy lounge singer played by his ex-fiance Demi Moore in new movie BOBBY is based on late, great Rosemary Clooney because the White Christmas star didn't drink.
Clooney was present at The Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles on the night Robert F Kennedy was assassinated in 1968 - the premise for Estevez's new film BOBBY - but she wasn't performing.
The director insists Moore's alcoholic character wasn't based on any real-life lounge act.
He says, "This character that Demi plays is not based on Rosemary... Rosemary Clooney was there. She was a great supporter of Bobby."
In fact, it was the EVERLY BROTHERS who were performing at the Ambassador on the night of Kennedy's assassination.

Estevez Cashed In Pension To Pay Bills


Emilio Estevez The Breakfast Club Young Guns Robert F Kennedy

Actor Emilio Estevez was forced to cash in his pension to pay the bills, after Hollywood turned its back on him in the late 1990s.
The former Brat Pack member rose to fame in the Eighties with movies such as The Breakfast Club, ST ELMO'S FIRE and Young Guns, and is now in the running for an Oscar after writing and directing the 2006 political drama BOBBY, about the assassination of Senator Robert F Kennedy.
But for almost ten years, Estevez had struggled to find work or get his scripts noticed.
He says, "I didn't stop working by choice. The past ten years have been very difficult. I've had dark periods. People didn't want to go anywhere near me.
"It's a cynical and resigned world but I'm an unapologetically optimistic person who wakes up singing every morning. I always believe things will turn out ok.
"I started writing several scripts, mainly because I didn't have anything else to do. But when I tried to get them made, I was met with deaf ears and blank stares."

Estevez Went Broke Writing Bobby

Emilio Estevez was so broke while he was writing and selling the script for his new movie BOBBY he was reduced to signing 'trading cards' to save his Hollywood home.
The BREAKFAST CLUB star was so committed to making the film, which focuses on the last 16 hours of political hero Robert F Kennedy before he was assassinated in 1968, he held back his career to complete it.
He says, "You do what you have to do to keep the wolves on the other side of the door.
"I cashed in my pension fund, I sold artwork; at one point I was signing these cards that had my likeness on them, like a trading card, to make a house payment. It was pretty sad."
Fortunately for Estevez, his passion for the project won out and the film was picked up. Then, a slew of big names, including ex-fiancee Demi Moore, Sharon Stone, SIR Anthony Hopkins, Lindsay Lohan and William H Macy signed up to star in the movie on the cheap.
Bobby, which is released in America today (17NOV06), is being tipped for a handful of Oscars.

Jackson Impressed By Bobby Co-stars

DAWSON'S CREEK star Joshua Jackson was so starstruck by castmates on the set of new movie BOBBY, he's had the film's poster framed as a permanent reminder.
Jackson is still pinching himself about his role in the Emilio Estevez film - about the 1968 assassination of US Senator Robert F Kennedy, alongside the likes of Demi Moore, Helen Hunt, Sharon Stone, William H Macy and SIR Anthony Hopkins.
And he made sure he picked up souvenirs from his shoot - as a reminder of the time he spent in the company of some of Hollywood's biggest names.
He explains, "The cast on that film is kind of ludicrous. I think it's the only poster I ever sent home to my mother to be framed.
"She always gets these movie things and puts them up in the house, which is terribly embarrassing for me but I am so happy to have the poster go 'Anthony Hopkins, Helen Hunt, Joshua Jackson.
"That's a pretty good list to be on... It was heartwarming to be there."
