hey folks.  He's a great actor, but a creep as a human being.  Touts "green" living, but spent New Year's Eve in Sydney, Australia, and then flew on a private jet with friends to Las Vegas to celebrate. The carbon footprint is enormous.  He demands the rest of the world live "green', but does exactly what he wants.  Must be a disciple of Big Daddy Al Gore.

Congrats to him! Love him :)  After 3 nominations, here's hoping the Academy will finally acknowledge his talent with an Oscar as well.
