Revue de presse

“Literary assassinations don’t come any more vitriolic than Hollywood Interrupted…fascinating stories and explosive revelations…” (Daily Record, 24 April 2004)

“… capitalises on our base interest in the more scandalous antics of the showbusiness elite…” (Birmingham Post, 17 April 2004)

“…makes for a riveting read.” (Hotdog, May 2004)

"...a wildly... entertaining jeremiad against the entertainment industry...against the perverts, flakes, egomaniacs, junkies, bullies and criminals..." (Rick McGinnis/Metro Toronto)

“…lifts the lid on some of Tinseltown’s weirdest and most notorious celebrities…” (Western Daily Press, 3 April 2004)

"...the industry has never been without a scandal, as this jaw–dropping book reveals..." (Hot Stars, 3 April 2004)

ANY ENTERTAINMENT hack worth his saltpeter understands that he is compromised – effectively neutered from word one . . . in toto, entertainment journalists are disgruntled; they are professionally castrated. And to top it off, these masochists are in turn, castigated and hated by the stars they′ve just fluffed up."
So write Andrew Breitbart and Mark Ebner in "Hollywood Interrupted." Hmmm . . . interesting point. As a lowly gossip columnist myself, I′d say the authors hit the nail on the head.
This book, which will land on the best–seller list next week, is an unabashedly right–wing, conservative one–note samba on celebrity culture. Is it the truth? Sure – from the authors′ point of view, but with no balance. All stars are the devil here. I can′t say I enjoyed this one; it′s tone is often nasty and even petty – "the aging actress" . . . "the portly actor . . . " But as an antidote to much of what passes for entertainment coverage – or even this column – "Hollywood Interrupted" has appeal and certainly it has shock value. After a while, however, shocks lose impact. Chapter after chapter on those bad people in show biz! And it′s not as if anybody′s going to stop attending the movies, buying records or being fascinated with celebrity just because these writers are able to reveal clay feet under every heavenly Hollywood body. (The New York Post, Liz Smith, March 15th)

Not since Hedda Hopper and Louella Parsons have two journalists (Breitbart feeds stories to Internet scandalmonger Matt Drudge and Ebner wrote for Spy) gathered more mean–spirited gossip about celebrities they condemn as sick and depraved. (Publishers Weekly, February 2, 2004)

CELEBRITIES are skewered like shish kabobs in Andrew Breitbart and Mark Ebner′s upcoming book, Hollywood Interrupted (Wiley). The veteran journalists air embarrassing anecdotes about everyone from egomaniacal producer Robert Evans to Tinseltown train wreck Courtney Love to fallen power agent Michael Ovitz. The authors disclose a previously unheard 1993 wiretap of Evans chatting with Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss in which Evans seems to be ordering up a 17–year–old girl he calls "the little one." A chapter titled "Heroine: Love Means Never to Have to Say You′re Courtney" was so damning in its details of Love′s many meltdowns that her agents at Vigliano & Associates demanded that it be cut from the book (it wasn′t). The tome also recounts how, after being terrorized by Ovitz′s spoiled b rat childre n, the power agent′s nanny quit and was subsequently blacklisted from working in Hollywood households. (The New York Post, Page Six, February 5, 2004)

Celebrity excess is being skewered in a pointed new book about the alleged bad behavior of some of Tinseltown′s bigger names.
Hollywood Interrupted is the work of writers ∗Mark Ebner∗ and ∗Andrew Breitbart.∗ While writing the book, the authors parted ways with their literary agent, ∗David Vigliano,∗ over a less–than–glowing chapter they penned on another of his clients, ∗Courtney Love.∗
Some examples: ∗Barbra Streisand∗′s ex, ∗Elliott Gould,∗ is criticized as an absent parent.
∗Cher∗ gets praised as "a wonderful mother."
∗Suzanne Hansen,∗ a nanny who worked for power agent ∗Michael Ovitz,∗ claims Ovitz and his wife, ∗Judy,∗ spent so little time together that they communicated via notes sent through the office mail of Ovitz′s Creative Artists Agency, where Judy also worked.
The authors recommend mandatory sterilizations for aspiring celebrities. (Daily News, Rush & Molloy, February 5, 2004)

"The perfect Oscar–Night side dish...Andrew Breitbart and Mark Ebner′s Hollywood, Interrupted is a terrific book, both snappy and snappish.... The next best thing to a Los Angeles friend with a nose for juicy gossip. (The Wall Street Journal

"A Hollywood horror–fest. Celebrities are skewered like shish kabobs in Andrew Breitbart and Mark Ebner′s... Hollywood, Interrupted." (Page Six, New York Post)

"Entertainment journalism has become a stampede of a–list a∗∗–kissing. The authors of this bracingly impudent expose, however, have declined to pucker up." (Penthouse, February 2004)

"In this juicy Hollywood exposé, a pair of investigative journalists talks to the hired help, including former butlers and nannies, to peer inside the bad behavior of stars like John Travolta, Liz Hurley and Winona Ryder. Shockingly delicious!" (Star magazine, March 1, 2004)

The entertainment industry ...takes a beating in [this] scathing collection of revelations about ... scores of luminous entertainment media personalities. (Fort Worth Star–Telegram)

"This is a fun book!" (Jon Stewart, The Daily Show)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Hollywood, Interrupted is a sometimes frightening, occasionally sad, and frequently hysterical odyssey into the darkest realms of showbiz pathology, the endless stream of meltdowns and flameouts, and the inexplicable behavior on the part of show business personalities.

Charting celebrities from rehab to retox, to jails, cults, institutions, near-death experiences and the Democratic Party, Hollywood, Interrupted takes readers on a surreal field trip into the amoral belly of the entertainment industry. Each chapter — covering topics including warped Hollywood child-rearing, bad medicine, hypocritical political maneuvering and the complicit media — delivers a meticulously researched, interview-infused, attitude heavy dispatch which analyzes and deconstructs the myths created by the celebrities themselves.

Celebrities somehow believe that it's their god-given right to inflict their pathology on the rest of us. Hollywood, Interrupted illustrates how these dysfunctional dilettantes are mad as hell... And we're not going to take it any more.

Par Cambel - Publié sur Amazon.com

I find it facinating thta Publishers Weekly wrote a bad reivew of this book...I wonder if that is because their bread and butter comes from articles kissing the behindes of the very people that this book takes to task for bad behavior?
Hollywood has been full of mean, childish hypocrites for as long as it's existed. The only reason that Lawyers, Politicians, and Used Car salesmen get a bad rap and actors don't is because none of those other folks get to constantly go on the tonight show to tell us how wonderful they are.
About time somebody writes a book that takes people to task, such as a certain Million dollar an episode actress harrassing an unpaid intern at her management company and bragging about it. This is just one of the tid-bits in this book. Hollywood can blame middle america all it wants but the real meanspirited childish homophobic etc.. behavior lies much closer to it's own doorstep.

Par Karen - Publié sur Amazon.com

Wow. This book is like nothing I've ever read on Hollywood, certainly not anything from Entertainment Weekly. Reading Hollywood, Interrupted was like entering a no-spin zone when it came to the headline stories we're fed on a daily basis. From Michael Jackson, to Eddie Murphy, to Courtney and Winona, we get the behind the scenes stuff that never ever makes the news reports. Then there's the stories from the mouths of Hollywood nannies that would make a child molester seem like an upright citizen, and a classic briefing on the elite Hollywood educational system called, appropriately, "Hollyweird High." Breitbart and Ebner systematically prove that the Hollywood machine is set up for failure by the nature of the upbringing of those who work there. They either wind up dead, on trial,in jail, in the loony bin or in an executive suite making creative decisions. HELLO? The creative output from Hollywood is dismal at best these days! I enjoyed every page of this book because each turn of the page led to the strengthening of the authors' argument against celebrity.

HASH(0x922fbc6c) étoiles sur 5 The Best 21 juin 2004
Par Nikki Heath - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Hollywood, Interrupted is the best book on celebrity, the media and Hollywood that I have ever read. In fact, it's the only entertainment industry book ever written by true rebel outsiders from completely different political standpoints. Ebner is a left wing journalist from Venice and his co-writer (Breitbart) is a right wing Drudge guy. Yet, the authors share strong opinions about an industry that is ripe for criticism. Maybe that was putting it mildly. These authors are absolutely ruthless with their approach.
Breitbart and Ebner build a convincing argument for the sterilization of actors based on testimony direct from celebrity nannies. Then they attack religion. Egads! Are these guys fascists? Hardly. But they are politically incorrect to the extreme. And funny. The media mocks fruity faiths like Kaballah daily, but Breitbart and Ebner not only mock, they deconstruct these cults with academic expertise, with special emphasis on the most dangerous Scientology.
Spoiler: "the heterosexual Tom Cruise!"
Hollywood, Interrupted is no-holds-barred nonfiction at its best. The authors have bravely jumped right into the cribs of celebrity offspring. They have stalked the children into high school and desecrated their belief systems. Sounds awful, doesn't it? It is. I definitely sense that the writing of this book took the authors down roads they would rather not tread, but to build their case against Hollywood, they had to go to the root of the problem to help us understand why celebrities-on-trial has become a growth industry in America.
I have recommended this book to everyone on I know.

Par mark calvi - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book is a well-written, often-times hilarious expose of the ridiculous status given to celebrities. They are definitely the most dysfunctional group of narcissists in the world. From the insane "religion" of Scientology, the wacked out private schools their children attend, to the Pan Men of Hollywood, each chapter keeps the reader intrigued. My favorite chapter is AOL girl; somebody big in Hollywood should be shaking in his "shoes"! This book really
makes me glad I am just an average, normal, middle class American.
What amazes me is how the media unjustifyingly glorifies actors! Kudos to the authors for their bravery in writing this!

Par D. Reed - Publié sur Amazon.com

I work in the film biz, and part of my job is to pay attention to books that are selling, book that are controversial, and then read them and analyze them for my boss. Obviously, HOLLYWOOD INTERRUPTED falls into this catagory, as its place on the best seller lists and the highly divided thoughts on this board show, but my boss was uncomfortable with me reading at the office, so I had to read it at home -- same as with Ezsterhas' latest! WHY? Because this book tells some dirty little (and BIG)secrets abut big stars and about the inner workings of Hollywood, and because for Hollywood, it's very "unPC." Because this book takes an unpopular (for Hollywood, though not for the overall US) point of view, it's been ignored by the major media--though IMHO if it was a little-book-that-could from the same indie pub with a more Hollywood-friendly POV, then it'd be slobbered on by everybody!
As a pro, who reads up to three books a day, I have to comment: I may not always agree with the writers, but I LOVE their tone of voice. Their deft depictions of Holywood, both the low and high life, were precise, pointed and at times poignant. And I loved playing "guess the blind items," and I'm not the only one. There's a huge buzz and some guessing games going on after work about who's who in these stories, and heaven help Courtney Love if either judge in her cases reads this before trial--she'll be swapping hygene tips with cellmate Martha Stewart!
You can read this book as pop culture, you can read it as a polemic, but you should read it, especially for the character studies.
