According to Jezebel, Mia Farrow is skeptical of North Korean reports depicting citizens sobbing in the streets over the death of the communist country's leader, Kim Jong Il.
Farrow, 66, is known for her political awareness and activism. On Sunday, she expressed doubt over the authenticity of emotions shown in footage of North Korea's mourning citizens.
"N Korea: Ppl sobbing, wailing & thrashing about – as an actor I can say, they would never get hired," she tweeted with a link to footage.
Kim is believed to have been 69 at the time of his death, and is said to have died of a heart attack Saturday due to "overwork" after "dedicating his life to the people."
Hi there, this weekend is pleasant in support of me, because this point in time i am reading this impressive educational post here at my house.
I enjoy, result in I found exactly what I was taking a look for. You have ended my 4 day long hunt! God Bless you man. Have a great day. Bye
Actors should just stick with acting, models with modeling, and singers with singing. Nothing bothers me more than when celebrities, with too much money and time, and feeling like they are just shells that act out scripts that they had no part in writing, try to make themselves feel like more than what they are (which is just someone who pretends to be someone else), and abuses their fame by commenting upon things that have nothing to do with them. Things like animal rights or famine I would understand, because they are things that do not require an expert to understand, but commenting upon the public reaction in North Korea as if she were a political scientist just shows what a bimbo she is.
Mia, I like, sort think like that they were like,,,faking it or something. Yeah, and pretending and stuff too...
Dedicating his life to the people? Really?? There must be a typo, it should say "Dedicating his life to OPPRESSING the people."
Who the F cares what this woman has to say?
Mia Farrow is an outstanding individual and humanitarian. Her list of accomplishments and international recognition from the U.S. government, foreign governments and the U.N. is impressive. She has spent years of her life in some of the most devastated and hopeless areas of the world always working to help out. I couldn't be more impressed with an individual and wish I could meet her one day. With all of her experience dealing with refugees and oppressed people, I do take very seriously what she has to say.
Yet Hollywood embraces a dictator called Castro. No difference between the two, but one is fashionable the other is not.
nude hats are unattractive on anyone, let alone any already washed out 66 year old
Watching those videos, my mind can't help but conjure images of Orwell's "Two Minutes of Hate".
@ Tonga, why don't you just move ur butt to North Korea if you think that life is better there then the good ole USA. your education is awful and you need to learn to spell correctly.
Let me tell you the true , I came from the communist country too, everytime our "dear leader" died, we all have to cry very hard, the harder we cry, the more they leave us a lone, I remember exactly how we had to put some hot chili pepper near our eyes, so we can produce some faked tears, we cried days and nights and my parents have to pretend they were so suffered , they get sick because they couldn't bear the loss of our "dear leader ", they cried for our safety, my uncle who is a brave man, he just refused to cry and the next day, the very next day after "our dear leader" died, he just disappeared ! and that make my parents even more nervous . After run from North to South, then to America, my parents were still so afraid of communist, my dad use to watch the CNN and told us: what if America become communists , where else should we go ? I love you Dad, I am in a safe place now . Please rest in peace .
Let me motorboat you
Mia is really in character: she's playing the role of someone she believes to be relevant
I like arm-n-hammer baking soda because I love yellow boxes
I don't believe its geniune either – but just b/c Mia Farrow said so? Psh...hardly.
so who gives a rats as- what this nobody "thinks".
Mia Farrow is an actor, not Psychiatrist. Besides, who the hell cares what she thinks about the NK people, and why is this even posted as news?
That's it folks trash the messenger, and not the message. Pathetic, and people wonder why we're in such trouble?
Why is CNN so afraid of our success? We can't get the answer. Maybe you can.
.p a p a r a z z i n c dot c o m
Oh, shut up, Mia–you haven't been relevant in decades.
THIS IS HORRIBLY SAD NOT BECAUSE OF THE DEATH OF KIM. BUT BECAUSE IF YOU ARE NORTH KOREAN AND YOU DO NOT DISPLAY THE PROPER AMOUNT OF SORROW YOU WILL BE SENT TO THE MOST HORRIFIC UNIMAGINABLE SLAVE LABOR CAMPS. GO TO AMAZON NOW AND BUY "AQUARIUMS OF PYONGYANG" AND "EYES OF THE TAILLESS ANIMAL".
YODOK IS ONE CAMP AND IT IS LITERALLY HELL ON EARTH. WHOEVER BELIEVES IN A LOVING GOD IS AN IDIOT. NO LOVING GOD WOULD ALLOW THE HORRIBLE TORTURE AND SUFFERING THAT GOES ON IN NORTH KOREAN PRISON CAMPS.
CHINA SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES FOR LETTING THIS REGIME CONTINUE ITS RELENTLESS OPPRESSION. THE WORLD SHOULD BE ASHAMED THAT THEY'VE LET THIS LEVEL OF SUFFERING OCCCUR IN MODERN DAY. I WOULD VENTURE TO SAY THAT THE TORTURES THE NORTH KOREANS ARE PROPOGATING ON THEIR PEOPLE ARE STILL NOT AS BAD AS THE HORRIFIC DEVICES THE LOVELY CATHOLIC CHURCH USED ON "HERETICS"AND POLITICAL DISSIDENTS IN THE DARK AGES.
Great "political awareness," Captain Obvious.
maybe they are crying but with relief, in hopes that now the food the farmers grow will start going to feed the populace instead of just fattening up the leaders. That clean water, a working electrical grid will be a reality instead of a fairy tale.
Its like this people if you are not crying and you are in North Korea you are going to a prison camp, but hold on a moment. Not just you but your mom, dad, sister or brother aunt uncle etc. not for a while but for the rest of your life. That's what it's like in NK. Now understand these folks seen crying are from Pyongyang. You will not see another soul but those in that Capitol. The have miners who follow you every where. They take all possessions from you on entrance to this country. Where you will not get them back until you are crossing back over.
I know this because my Uncle has guard the border from The SK side. These folks don't have freedom plain and simple. They don't know any better don't be harsh on people from NK. Hate the government there sure. But don't hate a child that puts its hand on the stove unknowingly that it will burn. Godless the people of North Korea.
I ment god bless the people of North Korea.
She is still bitter that she couldn't control her own Korean.
She doesn't know a thing about NK! she's an expert now?
Apparently, Mia Farrow and everyone at CNN failed to realize that the hyperlink labeled "footage" shows a video of Kim Il Sung's funeral.
On a completely shallow note, she looks more like 36 than 66! Impressive.
Did she come up with that all on her own? Famous people always think they have to point the obvious out to everyone else. Eat turds.
I don't believe chocolate mouse can make you conceive a devil child.
All loyal and loving citizens of the paradise of the People's Republic of Korea come and show your grief in Pyongyang central square. Show your love and and mourning of our Dear Leader who has dedicated his life so that our country could be the utopia it is today.
P.S. everyone who shows up gets a free week's rations for their family. If you shed tears, you get 10 days rations. Thank you, that is all.
Too bad Kim Jong Il is rotting in hell. He must think he's on vacation compared to the state of North Korea the way he left it.
Those tears are certainly real-real as the cash that paid for them. *yawn* The Egyptians and Romans did this too-they're called 'professional mourners'. So what?
This video is from 2008. So while her point may be valid, this video doesn't support it.
So of all the issues going on in the world right now, we find this to be newsworthy to the extent of spending this much time and so many reports on it???? Yeah, ignore prostrate cancer and worry to death about going bald!
You people sicken me!
I'm pretty sure that worrying about North Korea in the hands of terrorists is kind of a big deal.
Why are we supposed to care what Mia Farrow thinks about anything?
On behalf of millions of mourning North Koreans I say to Mia why don't you mind your own business? Better yet, Why don't you spend some time with your duaghter and teach her about whats appropriate with daddy.
Heck, I thought they were all laughing!
In the Ancient Near East people earned a living as paid mourners.
Perhaps this is another paid mourner.
It takes a certain skill to summon such tears, and there was a price required, for such professional mourners.
The good news is the one who tormented his own people–the one who feasted and drank sumptuously, while millions starved, will do this no more.
Perhaps they were tears of joy. After all the reign of terror of one who starved millions, while he lived in comfort and wealth, is over.
This video isn't even about Kim Jong Il - it's Kim Il Sung. What?
Mourn like the communist...." Cry or you die " "Cry harder you are not convincing"....This stupid site should have thumbs up/down.....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You can't fool old Mia, she's much smarter than the rest of us.
I don't buy the crocodile tears with the North Koreans anymore than I did back when we were expected to accept that crock when everyone boo hoo'ed over Kennedy's death.
Unless you were around when Kennedy was ASSASSINATED (big difference than some guy dropping dead of a heart attack), you should talk about something you know something about.
"dedicated his life to the people"? The regime's spind doctors must expect their people will eat up that line of BS, after all they can't provide them any food. If this murderer was so concerned about his people, maybe he shouldn't have been the biggest client of Hennesy Cognac, at $800K per year. He son doen't looked like he's missed many meals either. Those two ate more in one day than an entire family would get in a year.
Just another ignorant celebrity activist who knows nothing about their "Cause of the moment". Spend some time in a Communist dictatorship, where every minute of the day is filled with indoctrination, and you would clearly understand that the sobbing is real. JUSTIFIED? That's a different matter. However, in the people's minds, he was nearly a God on earth. – It does not take a lot of effort once you control everything the people see, hear, read, know.
The people of the DPRK are not aware that the US was the largest food donator during their famine, or that US aid to the DPRK since 1995 is well over a billion dollars – In their minds, it is the "Imperialist Americans" who caused the famine, and that it was the greatness of their leader that "brought them out of it".
She really needs to take some time to understand the mentality of people living under this type of rule. It was the same in China (and still is, to some extent). -
completely agree with you, another ignorant celebrity she is!
Of course she doesn't. That's the era we live in now. As soon as the media reports something, the first thing you are supposed to do is say how the media is lying. I'm no fan of most journalism but I know to take the news with a grain of salt, but that doesn't mean I need to go spreading my own propaganda around because I don't believe something.
Just like most Hollywood political know-it-all's who open their lap, you are clueless on this subject.
Shuck my corn! Now I feel so much more informed. I wasn't sure at first...
I was waiting her opinion with bated breath.
Why is it that some actors/entertainers... think that their celebrity buys them an opinion? But whats even more sad..... is me sitting here typing a response to what CNN and this has-been thinks.
What a great guy
Mia Farrow – who?
She has no clue what brainwashing is, since she herself is. When Stalin died it was much worse in Soviet Union, and Stalin was called the same way father etc. Mia...just get on playing and stay out of politics, all Hollywood actors think that if they have money and fame, they can be good at everythig else, while some can, others will never be...if you have no idea how brainwashed YOU COULD BE...(we all are to some degree, however the very DEGREE is the most important distinction
Why, why, why, why, oh why in the world should we give a flying you know what about what MIA FARROW thinks?
Mia is just mad that yet another Korean is being showed more love than she got.
I 100% believe it.
I've seen videos from the few outreach programs that go into NK. One was an outreach that did cataract surgery under positivily medieval conditions. After the surgery, the patients did not thank their surgeons, but bowed and profusely thanked a picture of Kim. The docs were advised this would happen but were shocked by it none the less. Kim Jong-Il WORSHIPED in NK.
He has to be–it's the only way he could allow his people to starve and still maintain power.
I agree with Mia. It looks like professional mourners, fake from the word go. A case of bad acting.
Mia Farrow, having so many adopted children, may have some experience of Korea (tho. not the North). She attributes the outpouring to acting, and she is probably right that this is "ceremonial crying" . There used to be hired mourners in funeral processions in the West (read your Charles Dickens about London).
If they don't visibly mourn...they are shot. Mandatory mourning! I'm glad that Mia brought this up. She's only thinking what we are all thinking.
It's like rethuglican'ts extolling the virtues of b-movie actor turned class-warrior against working Americans, Ronnie Rayguns. Except the Koreans are being forced to engage in this maudlin display, rethugs actually believe their own BS.
WHY IS THIS IN THE NEWS?, DEP'T.
Is CNN serious? Am I really supposed to care what Mia Farrow thinks about what goes on in the world?
Who gives a damn what Mia Farrow thinks about anything?
A kid could of told u it was fake..althouh north koreans are brainwashed slaves...
My B.A. is in Psych with an M.A. in Sociology, I can state it is my professional opinion that I clearly do not possess sufficient data to form a professional opinion. I can however state with a reasonable sense of accuracy that CNN is rapidly losing any journalistic integrity.
like I said
I don't buy Mia Farrow.
I'm a little confused, I clicked on this link thinking that they had actually posted Mia Farrows opinion on the mourning,...and I guess they really did. I'm really curious as to what her credentials are regarding studies in Sociology, Mass Psychology, Foreign Affairs, etc? I guess I'm just baffled as to why CNN would link this garbage journalistic piece.

I'm baffled that you are baffled, Baffled!
Seriously CNN! I respect Mia Farrow for all that she has done however this is major international event with potential nuclear consequences. Your reporting should be based on responses from world leaders and true experts on the situation. Why not ask Britney Spears what she thinks?
Who is Mia Farrow?! And.,, why do we care what some hollywood actress has to say.
So rong, Earfrings!
The Footage linked to is 17 years old, 1994's death of Kim Il Sung!! The broadcast reactions to Kim Jong Il's death, who in the video is walking about, saddened by the death of his father, seem restrained and thoughtful in comparison.
1. Who gives a da@n what Mia Farrow thinks?
2. So what if they are acting out pain and suffering? We call it reality TV and it seems just fine to witness Housewives & suicides, Kardashian gator tears, and fist-pumping goombahs.
3. We have more important issues to focus on. This is nothing but diversionary journalism.
milford, I'm guessing you're probably about 15. Anyway, while all Americans may not care whether their grief is real, Korea is important and you should pay attention to what's going on there. We have 28,000 troops there for a reason. And I agree with the others who mentioned that the video link in the story is about Kim Il Sung and NOT Kim Jong Il. There will be plenty of videos forthcoming of the wailing and carrying on for Kim Jong Il. The sad thing is that the top North Korean party members seem to have no idea just how ridiculous it looks to the rest of the world.
I too am a non-believer!
Mia wat does it matter to any american wat koreans do? I know frankly i dont care what they do or if they get shot for not doing. Dont you have real news so people wont be focused on wether or not youre a credible journalist?
Gee Mia, ya think?????
We can send boehner to cry on our behalf =)
well thank god she pointed out that this was probably staged, the restof the world never would have figured out that if the people of North Korea didn't mourn properly they would probably get a bullet to the head.
Mia – dear one, you don't understand American culture let alone that of North Korea!
She didn't tell anyone how to mourn, she stated she didn't believe it; and the fact that people are responding to her cooment makes her relevant.
OK, it wasn't CNN- I just looked at Mia's tweet, and sure enough it is video from 1994. I don't have a twitter account and probably never will, but will someone kindly tell her to make a correction? (80% of the internet = misinformation...and then let's repost it!)
I don't blame them for faking that they care or being upset.. if they don't I'm sure they will be imprisoned or killed.. its ashamed that so many people had to live this repressed life under this horrible dictator.
THE VIDEO LINKED IN THE ARTICLE IS NOT CORRECT, IT IS FROM 1994!! Did anyone watch any of the video said to have been linked by Mia? Either CNN got it wrong, or Mia did, because that is video from 1994 when *Kim Il Sung*, NOT the recent *Kim Jong Il* I have not seen any current video of people weeping and thrashing over Kim Jong Il, nor do I care, but this whole story seems to be based on a WRONG video Mia has seen.
Cry or die.
I don't believe it either. I think "mourning" like that is a political necessity to show allegiance to the nation and those who don't may suffer in a number of ways. Besides, it is a closed nation. We don't know what goes on there. I also think his son bumped him off so he could rise quicker to power. His face just looks so cool, and his eyes have a wicked sort of fire to them. We will have to wait and see what he does.
Wasn't Kim Jung ll the actor in Team America: World Police? He was great.
Obviously you people cared enough to click the link and comment.
An unimportant opinion from an unimportant person. She doesn't even qualify to be on an entertainment section. Kim K is more relevant than Mia now and that ain't sayin' much.
I cried when Michael Jackson died. I even tried to do the moon walk but failed. Two take away points: 1. People cry for different reasons; 2. No one can do it like The Kim but life goes on an hopefully there is progress!
Kindly old person is absolutly right as always. I've seen those funeral actors on a leaked episode of Mike and Molly where they were both killed tragically bowel cancer.
I've heard that swedish scab labour took short cuts when refurbishing the leaders train. Bloody sweds.
These people work cheap. I'd have a minibus full for my wifes funeral only she died in 1973.
Mia is absolutley right as usual. Young people these days don't watch the news or listen to the wireless.
and Kim Jong Un looks exactly like Porky Pig!
he really does
Why don't you let Ms.Farrow express her opinion as you express yours? We are all in America after all!!!
One has to wonder how evil his son will be when he takes over. Could things get better?? COULD HE BE MORE EVIL THAN HIS FATHER??
Yes, yes he can. Thanks for asking. He can actually be 10x more evil than his father, because he has SOMETHING TO PROVE, which his father did not, and HE HAS NUKES, which his father only got in the last decade. So yes, sir, yes indeed.
Superb comment, Steve.
Unlike most of the posts here, I do believe they are not acting. I have lived in South Korea for 15 years, working at a univeristy, and I can tell you that North Koreans are totally brainwashed into believing everything their governemnt tells them, especially those who live in Pyongyang, which is where most of the elite live. There is a strong personality cult surrounding Kim Jong Il and his father Kim Il Sung. They are venerated by the people, almost worshipped one could say. The people know things are bad, they know people disappear into labor camps, but they often do not blame the leaders, but "subversive elements" or foreigners. One just has to look at Soviet Union during the Great Terror of the 1930s, MIllions of people disappeared, as they were arrested, sent to labor camps, or executed. But Stalin was stilled loved. When he died in 1953, hundreds of peopel were killed in the crush of a mob trying to get in to see his dead body as it lay in state in Moscow. No, I do believe the North Koreans sincerely loved their leader, and the weeping is real. HOwever, the cynic in me can't help but think that even though the weeping is real, the weepers might be the more priveleged classes in the capital, not the starving masses in the countryside, who are most likely secretly glad the Dear Leader is gone.
Thats right Steve, The People are brainwashed and the upper classes goes along with it as millions are locked in work camp prisons. Are you talking about North Korea or America?
How many stupid Americans believe "muslim extremists" did 911 instead of US, British and Israeli intelligence?
I have one set of drab, quasi-peasant, semi-military clothes and one pair of woman's glasses. Lady Gaga was my fashion adviser. Could never really get used to the haircut, though... How old am I?
YOU TRIPPING MORONS DO NOT KNOW JACK ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON IN KOREA! I am sure that there were people wailing in the streets. This was their political leader and many of them looked up to him.
Brainwasing + fear = conformity....and that's all it is!
Well, OF COURSE the crying is fake! These people are living in fear under a TOTALITARIAN REGIME. They have been psychologically conditioned – and perhaps ordered – to perform these public acts of mourning. What we are seeing in these videos is people living under slavery.
America has it's problems to be sure – but this is one reminder of how good we really have it.
None of us will know the truth since we live in a country saturated by the media, so easily accessed even if by the tips of our fingers. If they are sincerely traumatized I feel awful they believed his BS & if they are being forced to appear traumatized I feel awful they cant be allowed to rejoice his passing. Either way they're living lives none of us can relate to. Lets consider ourselves lucky.
Who cares?? Who cares about what Mia Farrow thinks?
I think Rosemary's baby killed him.
Who is that ghost in the picture? Could use a bit of beach time.
herro woo u rike pesi or is coke arright
It is sad that a smple comment by a strong activist has turned into a bashing of her by some uneducated fools.
Thats the problem nowadays, too many activists, not enough real people.
The people in North Korea have been isolated from the rest of the world. They believe everything the authorities tell them.
Considering that people were punished for not mourning enough when his father died in '94, it doesn't surprise me that so many North Koreans are so "emotional" now that Kim Jong Il has died...
Yea it's called being scared for your life!
Don't hate the actor, hate the stage.
Go get it, South Park.
If every day of your life you were told he was great by the tv radio and everything else, then you would believe it, regardless.
Oh they believe it alright...or else!
I've seen video of the North Koreans mourning. Frankly, it looks staged.
Waah waah, or was it yeah yeah ! I can't remember what was ordered by the party leaders!
The people of North Korea are heart broken. Their GREAT leader who led them to victory and worked so hard for the people of North Korea has died. The people are sad and it's quite natural that they would mourn. Let us keep them in our prayers.
Yeah, best crazy ass dictator EVER!! lol
hmm, so right he was a great leader and that time he shot 38 under Par on that round of golf. An incrediblely gifted man.
From which turnip truck did you fall?
He also invented the hamburger, and states that he never poops.
I'm sensing...or at least hoping that is sarcasm? If not, get help. That man and his regime are pure evil who had brain washed his people into believing he is a great leader and if that didn't work and you spoke out against him...god help you cause no one else would. He's where he belongs...in hell! Read up on anyone who has defected from N. Korea. Those people are starved and kept isolated...it's a hellish existence. Fu!@ Kim Jung II...
I find it very saddening that all of you have bought into the imperialist propaganda. There is the no famine, no repression. Juche has given us all we need. The reality is that we just want nothing to do with the rest of the world. We're allowed to contact the outside, but we don't since the North truly is a workers paradise. The US just can't accept that we made communism work. Look at how they treat Cuba. If we didn't have China backing us we'd ne in the same boat. All glory to the Dear Leader! May his son reign a hundred years! North Korea is best Korea!
Totes more convincing...if they had electricity and computers. If you're North K, you're not there now!
I hope what you say is true. And we are glad as citizens that you are happy in the system of government that you have. We love America, but we are not always proud of the way the government treats it's people.
Nice writing! Now go study for the midterm.
Dear North Korea,
What our readers do not understand is not how big a worker's paradise North Korea is, but the reality that if you do not start showing some emotion about the great leader being dead, your families can end up imprisoned. the more emotional you are acting, the better off you will be. that is why you will see the north koreans with no tears, because they really can not make it up for so long.
For those of you Americans that have no clue about north Korea, you need to read two books: Aquariums of Pyongyang and Nothing to Envy. I would simply not post anything in this blog if you have not at least read the two books.
You'd be sobbing too if you had a platoon full of soldiers aiming their rifles at you off camera....
In a country with no freedom, one has to be carefull that the finger of people are not pointing at me for not show enough sorrow for the Dictator passing.
The eyes of the goverment are on the people.
Plus Mia is a dumb name. I bet she is some old fat troll. Seems like she could have thought up a better name to use on blogs and twitter than Mia.
What a stupid assumption for her to make. He wasn't just their leader, he was basically their god for like 4 decades. I think a few people would be weeping if god died.
In the past is you don's show that you are upset (chances are the average N. Korean is happy) they have to put up a show or they will be targeted. I know I lived in a Communist country, you get paranoid and trust no one.
In general entertainment news is bad, but the Marquee Blog is by far the worst of it. I'm so glad they're keeping us informed on Mia Farrow's twitter account.
They aren't uspet – they are overjoyed to the point of tears of happiness.
'69' is a nice position, I mean age.
What? Kim Kardasian wasn't available for comment so they dug dug this old prune up to utter these words of wisdom? Hell lady, you didn't even know your husband was banging your adopted teen so how the hell do you know what these people are feeling!
She and Woody were never married or lived together....it would have been easy to conceal the affair.
Yeah, I don't buy it either. I also don't buy the fact that it's not butter! Still in disbelief.
How sad that CNN is quoting a has-been actress on political beliefs. What, Lindsey or Paris, weren't available to comment?
How about you do a little research on Mia Farrow and her activism and humanitarianism before you say something. She has done more in her lifetime for others than you probably could with 3 lifetimes.
@comeon...couldn't agree more...its sad when people who have likely never lifted a finger to help people in need bash a celebrity who donates time and money and is willing to put themselves in harms way to stand up for what they believe.
Mx...what have you done?
She may not be an A list celebrity, but she is known and respected for the work she does
If my parents were an actress and a director and I had an easy way into a well paying career Id be a humanitarian activist too
... and Kim KarTrashian was unavailable for comment. She and Kourtney were taking New York!!!
If Ms. Farrow was that knowledgeable of foreign affairs she wouldn't have made that comment. I'm puzzled why so many come to her defense. She didn't display much wisdom worthy of comment.
How true. In fact she even found a wife for Woody Allen.
Was thinking the same thing "has been actress". Why is it that we do not hear from these down and out celebrities unless it is for a cause? I personally thought she had died. Who cares what her thoughts are......guess she has to find something to fill up her time since no one is pounding at her door for a role either in a movie or on TV.
They have to sob (or at least pretend to) because they might just be shot for not weeping over the death of this evil little man .
Of course it's BS! We don't need Mia Farrow to tell us that!
We do need Mia Farrow to tell us that because you're a nobody, and nobody listens to you.
Only nobodies have to obtain their opinion from members of the Entertainment Industry, Vera.
Ok, so Vera needs Mia to tell her how to think. There's one.
I listen to Mia. She is awesome. I mean, c'mon, like she was smoking Sinatra's sausage when she was like 1/3 his age. Dooby, dooby.....*splort!*
Who cares what she thinks.
Unlike many "politically active" celebrities Mia Farrow actually does know what she is talking about when she comments on an issue and she has demonstrated a willingness to walk the walk and not just talk.
I have greater respect for what she has to say about suffering then any other famous person or politician.
IIndeed. Who cares what she thinks?
I care what she thinks and I agree with her. Mia Farrow is has been politically active for decades and knows what she is talking about. Rather than make snarky comments about things you know nothing about perhaps you should crack a newspaper once in a while.
I care what she thinks and I care what you think. Bottom line: I care. Do you?
I always take seriously any comment from a woman that married a 50 year old Frank Sinatra at the age of 21. Oh and to have slept with Woody Allen too and let him bugger my little ! Can you say Gold Digger ?
really, erik? she is just an actress who happened to adopt one or two korean children. sure, she probably knows a bit more about their culture than we do. but does that make her an expert? or does it make her comment salient, wise, or profound? nope. it's just the opinion of a FORMER actress and activist.
According to Jezebel Mia Farrow....etc., etc. What the heck is "Jezebel" and what idiot reporter decided he/she should ask Mia Farrow what she thinks of this? And then CNN makes a headline of it. LOL.
I must say, Mia Farrow's profound comment about this really has shed light on why these people are sobbing hysterically. I would not have known how to interpret it if not for her profound wisdom on North Korean mourners and their acting skills. I think perhaps we should also ask Nancy Grace what she thinks too.
Mia should never have left Frank. Never. It's been all down hill since.
I'm so ronery here in herr gais.
I do not believe it either......people are starving in this country ....the leaders and the people that they stage are great ,but go behind this and it is death!
Mia Farrow – grief consultant?? What next, econometric modeling for growth, sustainable development, cardiac thorasic surgery? Hollywood savants are the chosen ones. They know everything.
98% of the North Koreans are mourning Kim's death like 98% of the world mourned Bin Laden's death. NK is replacing one stooge with an even worse stooge chunk off the rotten block. Do NOT give NK anything, food or otherwise. Just keep them in their box until the inevitable implosion. If they need food, call their buddies in China. If they launch a nuke, incinerate the place in 10 minutes.
I don't think we can generalize the whole population like that... true, there is an incredible amount of pressure on these citizens to project an appearance of sorrow, but some of them are actually genuine. As a matter of fact, many of the North Koreans are so indoctrinated that they don't know a world without KJI exists, it'd be like God dying. I agree that you can say some of them might be acting, but we're talking about a nation of millions.
This girl is a phycopath and can know anyting from thousand of miles apart. We have more poverty and hunger in US than NK. They are just 20 milolion there and we are 300M and 10% are job less.
Tonga = Clueless Moron. Suggest you move to NK to see what REAL poverty & hunger are all about. Please, do it now. Enjoy your new found police state. Thank God we'll never hear from you again, since they're not allowed Internet freedom either.
Mia Farrow has dedicated a large chunk of her life bringing famine and starvation to the attention of the Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton loving media. It isn't easy to sway the medias attention away from such superficial exploitations of the super rich but Mia has given it her best shot for over 30 years. Her home is filled with adopted children from all over the world. She walks the walk and talks the talk like few others who have had the good fortune to become highly famous. Any disparaging remarks about her today are from a place of ignorance regarding her life and dedicated work around the globe. Thank you Mia for your continued efforts to draw support from the world body regarding hunger and poverty. Thank you for drawing attention to the government forced crying and wailing in North Korea. You won't find the crying in the rural parts of the country. The citizens in the city are being watched at all times by thought police and cameras. If they don't cry, the slave camps await them.
Maybe she should have spent a large chunk of her life taking acting lessons or watching her adopted daughter & stepfather.
@Tonga: 5-10% of NK's population died of starvation in the 90's.
I am a 35 years old CEO, ri;ch and strong but still sin;gle ... now Christmas is coming!!! You wanna find your lover to have this wonderful time together? I am see;king a good woman who can give me a real love, so I joined BillionaireFriends.COMit's the first and best club for wealthy people and their adm;irers. Well, you do not have to be rich ,but you can meet one there.
Gigi, maybe you should marry Tonga. But please don't reproduce there are enough morons in the world.
Their grief is not real. They are all brainwashed. If you will notice they are all in the room and standing as they grieve. There were very FEW tears and Mia Farrow is correct–they're not very good actors. You don't have to be a grief counselor to know when somebody is faking it. In North Korea, you do what you're told or you 'disappear' for 15 years and your family 'disappears' too! Sadly, the son will be just as bad, if not worse, than Kim Jong Il.
