I was just listening to the first thing I ever downloaded from Audible. It was Robin Williams interviewing John Lasseter.

Are you kidding, ARL? Authors are nearly universally horrible people. I don't know exactly how to draw the line, but as a fan of music, basketball and Apple, I've had a lot of practice thinking about the assholes who make things I enjoy. I will enjoy their work while condemning their actions, learn about what makes them great and not put them on a pedestal, and be glad I'm not in a position to have to mete out justice.

Me too. As a general rule I try to separate the "crazy in real life" from "compelling on screen" but there's grey area where I think no, I don't want to support this.

For eg Roman Polanski = no, Woody Allen = maybe?

Maybe there needs to be a new "creepy/rapey" rating system for actors/directors/producers involved in all content?

The golden age of TV/Film seems to be turning into a polished turd...

I agree somewhat. And it kind of plays to the saying "Don't meet your heroes" saying. But, ddt was not a bad guy in person AFTERALL! :) :)
