Susan Sarandon recently called Pope Benedict XVI a "Nazi" not once but twice during a recent interview, and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is asking the actress to apologize.
In a statement posted on the organization's website, the ADL refers to Sarandon's remark as a "disturbing, deeply offensive and uncalled for attack on the good name of Pope Benedict XVI."
As Newsday reported, the actress was speaking about her 1995 movie “Dead Man Walking” with actor Bob Balaban in an interview at the Hamptons Film Festival on Saturday. Sarandon, 65, mentioned that she sent the pope a copy of the anti-death penalty book the film was based on.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin follow the celebrity code of silence when it comes to their marriage - good luck spotting them on the red carpet together - but they've recently been a bit more open.
Paltrow explained to Elle earlier this year, that Martin "makes music for his fans, and he doesn’t want people to conjure a lame famous couple when they’re getting into his music...I get it.”
And Martin himself, who met Paltrow in 2002 and wed the Oscar winner in 2003, told CBS Sunday Morning that this is the one serious relationship he's been in.
