I'm not saying he can't be judged...I'd be a hypocrite if I said that. What I am saying is that I think some of the judgement of his actions, both in terms of the strip club and how he's "selling himself" may be a bit harsh. Ok, so it's different than what we've seen for most of the tour but for me that's what made it more interesting and refreshing. It's better than the same bevel of "are you close to your brother?", "what attracted you to the movie?" type questions we've been hearing ad nauseum since Philadelphia. Those sort of questions wouldn't have flown with Jimmy's audience, For me that interview was the most real and uninhibited I've seen Zac in a long time and it was nice to see him joking around with Jimmy and making light of a situation that didn't come at the most opportune time. None of us really know who Zac is, what we see is an image created to sell him and his movies to the public. When he veers off course a bit I think it throws people for a loop, but tbh I'd much rather see more real life events been addressed like this rather than relying on the same perfectly concocted image all the time. And if he loses a few fans or a few people choose not to see his movie because he acted "out of character" once then that's their loss.

But maybe that's just me...

I don't think anyone is no longer a fan...

But I don't know how honest I could view this interview, especially seeing his morning interview on the same subject, with Amanda. They both looked really... like awkward with it, and he seemed to be more in line with how he ordinarily is.

I guess I don't know how to say how while we don't know him, we certainly know how he presents himself. And he's said myriad times, in every promo cycle, that he's not doing anything too outrageous during them because he doesn't want to detract from the movie. Are we then to suppose that a late night stripper jaunt was out of the blue, him just ~being a boy~? While he was promoting, in the biggest city in the US, in one of the biggest clubs? A dramatic last minute shift in that for one late night interview right when his poor movie reviews and mediocre predicted b.o. are coming is not likely the time he's going to be most honest.

It's just grating to see him undersell his own charisma, in lieu of whatever this was. It's not that that isn't funny. It is. It's just kind of stupid. He knows how to be an adult in a better way.

Also what I meant by that judgment line is that I personally (and I'll speak for Bee, Kahlil, Cady etc in saying that they also) don't judge him for seeing strippers. Who cares? It's about promoting that fact, when all along he's said he keeps any ~bad behavior~ purposefully under wraps because he doesn't want to end up on Page 6.

Well yr on Page 6 now...
