NEW YORK – "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" set really was creepy and the NRA takes aim at celebrities in today's Foxlight.
That abandoned mill where some scenes of the number-one film "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" (search) were shot really was creepy. Erica Leerhsen says the mill hadn't been used for 50 years and smelled terrible. They found skeletons of animals and huge spiders kept dropping on the actors from the ceiling. Leerhsen says she freaked out and started screaming when a spider landed on her. The director told her to save her freak-out for the movie. Nice guy.
The National Rifle Association (search) has a new list with stars like Julia Roberts on it. It's asking members to boycott Roberts and stars like her for their gun-control stance. The NRA says she's not nice to the second amendment. Stars like Roberts are probably proud to be on an NRA list, as long as they're still bulletproof at the box office.
Others on the boycott list include Oprah Winfrey (search). Not enough guns mentioned in the book-of-the-month selections, guys?
"Sex and the City" star Sarah Jessica Parker apparently doesn't work an Uzi into her HBO show often enough. Doesn't "The Sopranos" make HBO fair and balanced?
And finally, the NRA doesn't like Jerry Seinfeld either. Hey, his stand-up comedy routines kill, isn't that good enough? What can people boycott, Jerry's reruns? He's already been paid for them.
