Horse of a different color

First media whores, then a media whore who was an actual whore in real life (JimJeffGuckertGannon) and now accusations of film whoredom?

True professionals: "[Harrison] Ford, [George] Clooney and [Robert] De Niro have all come under attack by fellow actor Russell Crowe for their willingness (eagerness, even) to take the corporate shilling. 'I don't do ads for suits in Spain like George Clooney or cigarettes in Japan like Harrison,' Crowe told reporters. 'I mean, Robert De Niro advertising American Express. Gee whiz, it's not the first time he's disappointed me.' (Ever the gentleman, Crowe conspicuously failed to extend his criticism to his good friend Nicole Kidman, who recently pocketed a reported $2m to plug Chanel No. 5 perfume.)"
