    NICOLE Kidman has made a public stand against terrorism.

    The actress, joined by 84 other high-profile Hollywood stars, directors, studio bosses and media moguls, has taken out a powerfully-worded full page advertisement in today's Los Angeles Times newspaper.

    It specifically targets "terrorist organisations" such as Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Palestine.

    "We the undersigned are pained and devastated by the civilian casualties in Israel and Lebanon caused by terrorist actions initiated by terrorist organisations such as Hezbollah and Hamas," the ad reads.

    "If we do not succeed in stopping terrorism around the world, chaos will rule and innocent people will continue to die.

    "We need to support democratic societies and stop terrorism at all costs."

    A who's who of Hollywood heavyweights joined Kidman on the ad.

    The actors listed included: Michael Douglas, Dennis Hopper, Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis, Danny De Vito, Don Johnson, James Woods, Kelly Preston, Patricia Heaton and William Hurt.

    Directors Ridley Scott, Tony Scott, Michael Mann, Dick Donner and Sam Raimi also signed their names.

    Other Hollywood powerplayers supporting the ad included Sumner Redstone, the chairman and majority owner of Paramount Pictures, and billionaire mogul, Haim Saban.

  3. Did you post this thinking anyone would give a crap about their shallow attempt at foreign policy.

    I'm not a movie buff but by the little I know of "stars" the signees on this list seem "conservative." Willis and Heaton are two of the better known Republicans in the community. A poker playing guy like James Woods probably isn't a Jerry Falwell but I doubt he's to the left of Winona Ryder either. Likewise to the Scientologists who are on board. Just the same, good to see......
     
  5. Woods is a rebublican and a mensa member.

    Kidman is an out of the closet Christian and it would shock me if the entire list wasn't republican considering her affiliation and the left's hatred for christians.
