Dear Cabot Patrons, I am writing to address an important matter concerning last night's event with Richard Dreyfuss at The Cabot. We deeply regret that Mr. Dreyfuss's comments during the event were not in line with the values of inclusivity and respect that we uphold at The Cabot. We understand that his remarks were distressing and offensive to many of our community members, and for that, we sincerely apologize. At The Cabot, we are committed to fostering a welcoming and inclusive environment for all members of our community. The views expressed by Mr. Dreyfuss do not reflect our beliefs, and we do not endorse them in any way. We take full responsibility for the oversight in not anticipating the direction of the conversation and for any discomfort it caused. We are taking immediate steps to ensure that such an incident does not happen again. This includes more rigorous vetting of our event participants and more proactive communication strategies to keep our audience informed.”

The statements were brief & then went right along with the interview & the host also baited him into answering a question that would get certain individuals object to..

If you read the comments it said he came out in a dress and had two stage hands rip it off him.

The interviewer said she had known him for 60 years and in the comments people said she was "egging him on", asking him provocative questions.

You have to wonder, if he came out and said MAGA people are assholes, or whatever, the management would be apologizing for his views having offended anyone in the audience.

I really think the everyone should take a week and completely ignore news and social media. Just texts and calls from friends/family. We need to recover for a bit from all the negativity, fear mongering, actual crises, war, death, poverty, politics and the HUGE wealth gap. But someone or something sure does have everyone whipped up into a constant state of agitation and alarm.

It’s also not rocket science to expect the celebrity to not bring up extremely divisive social issues and take stands on them that are intentionally demeaning to the people he disagrees with.

Yes there is a very progressive/liberal belief that children should be encouraged to pick their ‘gender identity’ and only go through the ‘right’ puberty despite the lack of research on blockers working and the long term effects.

One of Dreyfuss’s sons is a major TRA/misogynist who supports abolishing women’s sports because they’re not inclusive,

Dreyfuss has come across as very bitter for several decades. His career didn't go in the direction he hoped it would after his initial success in the 1970's. As one poster above noted, Dreyfuss made no secret of the fact that he felt entitled to win a 2nd Oscar for "Mr. Holland's Opus" in the 1990's. His career has been on the decline for a long time now.

If it's true he really came out wearing a dress then ranted about wokeness, it sounds more like dementia than anything else

However, I have serious doubts that this is what actually went down. No doubt he made some comments that didn't sit well with the audience at large (such as criticism of Streisand and Spielberg) that then was blown out of proportion.

Honestly, I would love to attend a Q&A at which one of the panelists went totally off-script and vented their unfiltered opinions rather than the usual "so-and-so is so brilliant, amazing, iconic" smoke-blowing statements. Even if I didn't happen to agree with them, it would be REAL.

Just thought I'd post this because the thought of Dreyfuss being bullied on every set is funny.

On the debauchery behind the scenes of American Graffiti: "Harrison [Ford] and the leader of the gang [Bo Hopkins], one night the two of them got drunk and I was walking by and they threw me into the pool. And that was OK, except they threw me into the shallow end, and I got an egg on my forehead.

On coping with an abusive Murray on What About Bob?: "I didn't talk about it for years. … Bill just got drunk at dinner. He was an Irish drunken bully, is what he was. … He came back from dinner [one night] and I said, 'Read this [script tweak], I think it's really funny.' And he put his face next to me, nose-to-nose. And he screamed at the top of his lungs, 'Everyone hates you! You are tolerated!' There was no time to react, because he leaned back and he took a modern glass-blown ashtray. He threw it at my face from [only a couple feet away]. And it weighed about three quarters of a pound. And he missed me. He tried to hit me. I got up and left."

On clashing with Oliver Stone on W., in which he played Dick Cheney: "I heard [Oliver] say, 'Well, you're so old. You look so old.' And I said, 'I do?'… I needed that money, so I put up with it."

Was he wearing his dress from the second act?

Throwing someone into the deep end (if they can swim) would be a prank. Pushing them into the shallow end is more like wanting to seriously hurt, or perhaps kill them.

The dress bit at R115 is Dreyfuss as Taylor Swift, doing a quick change, funny in concept but not execution, as he’s too old to dance or maneuver, and it’s painful to watch. Ironically, the stagehands who struggle to “rip” his dress off look like baby butch lesbians or trans youth.

How dare this audience of bigots and transphobes find the gall to criticize Richard wearing a dress . An enlightened progressive such as Richard is never exclusively trapped in the couture of his assigned slave name,; not is blocked from displaying elements of his true self.

But only in New Hampshire.

Oh, fuck off R89. No one is stopping conservative assholes from getting on their soapboxes at the Oscars, but they know the Oscar crowd doesn’t want to hear it. Apparently it was the same with this crowd. They didn’t come to hear this derp spout off on everything he hates. And the fact that he has to take advantage of a venue like this to shake his fists at the clouds makes him a huuuuge loser. No one was there to listen to him bitch and moan. Go to a Dump rally if you want to go off on everything that upsets your delicate sensibilities and the *woke* agenda. Otherwise, talk about the fucking movie.

The comparison is actually stupid. When people make political statements at an awards ceremony that’s for, what, ten seconds? You can mute them on your tv if you disagree.

Yes, r62, except NOBODY is "trans", they are people suffering from a mental disorder called gender dysphoria, mostly because they are traditionally gender non-conforming and the abuse and homophobia they encounter makes them believe that they must be the opposite gender that fits the public's notion of gender. They need treatment and compassion, not neo-vaginas!

That moderator was Karen Cadle. She was a big time booker who brought stars like Ernest Borgnine and Ann-Margret to the autograph shows. She seems to be able to handle Dreyfuss and books him at these screenings now. He was a headliner at CHILLER about ten years ago, line for hours and he did everything he could to not be there, he'd get up and walk away, he left for an hour "for lunch" without telling anyone and leaving the line waiting. I saw him scribble his name across an entire movie poster which I'd never seen before. He was so obnoxious, when my friend and I got to about four people from him, my friend after watching all these antics said, "Fuck this, I don't want to meet this asshole" and got off the line. To this day and many years attending, I have never hear anything bad about any guest close to him.

Dreyfuss has always been off.

In "You'll Never Eat Lunch in this Town Again," Julia Phillips wrote about meeting him at a party during his heyday in the '70s. He was extolling the virtues of "angry sex" by miming slapping someone back and forth while yelling "I hate you, I hate you" and humping air.

"I laugh, but in my head he's gone from a maybe to a never," Julia writes.

by Anonymousreply 160May 28, 2024 12:16 PM

It's almost like he was trying to be offensive. It's all fine and well having opinions, but why yell them at a Jaws screening? People aren't there for politics.

I suppose he's got issues, though.
