    Default Kathy Griffin warned she would end up on "s-list"

    absolutenow.com

    January 9, 3006

    STEVEN Spielberg pressured Kathy Griffin to issue a public apology after the comic joked during an appearance at last year's Golden Globes that 10-year-old actress Dakota Fanning had entered rehab. Griffin said lawyers for Spielberg, who directed the pint-size Fanning in "War of the Worlds," contacted Griffin after the awards and demanded that she apologize for the crack. When she refused, Spielberg's legal lackeys warned that she would end up on the powerful director's "s- list," according to the February issue of W. "I think Steven Spielberg has a lot of [bleeping] nerve," Griffin told W. "I don't care how big you are, you will not trample on my, or anyone else's, First Amendment rights. That makes me furious." Griffin, who has drawn the ire of Oprah Winfrey, Rene Zellweger and Gwyneth Paltrow for belittling them in her celeb-skewering act, recalled Spielberg's power play during her recent performance at Resorts in Atlantic City. "I get a call from the lawyers, and they're, like, 'DreamWorks . . . is furious about the whole Dakota Fanning thing, and they're livid, and Spielberg is personally furious, and DreamWorks is putting you on a list, and they demand an apology,' " Griffin said. "And I'm, like, 'A list?' I'm on the s- list? Who gives a s-? . . . Put me on your list. And Spielberg? Oh, what's the matter? I'm not going to star in any more Steven Spielberg movies? Oh, no! What'll I do with my time? "Oh, and E! Channel called me: 'We demand an apology.' And I go, 'OK, here's your apology: You'd have to be a [bleep]ing idiot to not know I was kidding.' And they're, like, 'Well, we can't print that' . . . It's a joke. It's a joke. I'm not going to apologize for jokes. Ten years old. It's a joke. "As if 'War of the Worlds' didn't have bigger fish to fry. With Tom Cruise losing his [bleep]ing [bleep] on Oprah and the 'Today' show and everything else, they're all worried about my Fanning joke, right?"

    Talk about your rock and a hard place.

    1. The Fanning girl is only 10. I know she's used to publicity
    but I don't know if she can take a joke told by an adult --
    which is much different than taking teasing from her grade-four friends.
    And she refuses to apologize to the girl? I can understand
    refusing to apologize to Spielberg, but seriously...

    2. Spielberg, who should know when to quit making movies,
    has made himself look stupid. According to imdb, he and Griffin
    have done nothing together, and now it looks like he's playing
    God out of spite.

    ^^ Agreed. It probably wasnt in the best taste but good for her for not backing down.

    Edit to say that anyone who is on Oprah's s can't be all bad!

    I'd like to know what Dakota Fanning thought of the joke, not Steven Spielberg. She's young, but she can speak for herself. Let her make up her own mind whether she feels Kathy should apologize or not.

    Well, I'm no fan of Kathy Griffins--isn't she already on the z-list?--but Spielberg is in danger of sounding like that asshole Tom Cruise. Stop preaching you stupid fucks! No one gives a shit what you think. And stop making movies, Spielberg! WE can see the plot twists coming a mile away. He is so heavy handed in everything he does....yech...

    I absolutely love her too!! I think she is funnier than hell! And I love the fact that she isn't backing down too. FUCK SPIELBERG! Buy a sense of humor already Steven! Time to stop believing all the press about yourself!
    Makes me love her more! YEA KATHY!!!

    Worst part is, that she probably isn't far off from the rehab thing. She's 10, I give her until about 14 and she'll be the new Lindsey Lohan.

    I wonder if Dakota would even know about it if Spielberg hadn't made a stink. It was just a joke, obviously.

    However, something that is rather painfully possible... Dakota's being groomed to be the next wife after Katie. He's not taking chances, so he's getting her into the scientology now, so she'll be trained by the time she's legal.

    Kathy Griffin kicks major ass.
    Spielrock needs to get the stick out of his and re-read the Constitution.

    Malicious intent? I thinkest not.

    I thought it was funny, but she shouldn't have said it. Child stars have enough to deal with without adults making fun of them.

    Honestly, I think Dakota Fanning is too young to be watching/listening to Kathy Griffin anyway. And if I were Dakota Fanning, I would have gotten the joke and thought it was funny. Because obviously, even with the proliferation of alleged drugs/rehab scandals among young Hollywood, she's still about 10 years shy of that age range.

    If I were 10, I think it would have made me uncomfortable. 10 year olds don't have the same understanding of irony that adults do.

    I still say she's an unfunny hag tranny-wannabe. She's right in her response to them, but she shouldn't be saying that shit about little kids in the first place.
