The people we don’t like almost exclusively exhibit a range of behaviours we don’t like – Gwynneth Paltrow, so many other actors and actresses too high on the list, singers, bloggers.
Some though defy explanation, there seems little reason to intensely dislike someone but at least Ace of Spades specifies in this case.
One I don’t know was on the list:
… someone called Annette Bening. Uh huh, looked her up and these are some of her sayings:
# Acting is not about being famous, it’s about exploring the human soul.
Right, well she can eff off for a start with that insufferable pseudo-wisdom.
# I am really looking forward as I get older and older, to being less and less nice.
# I think we as celebrities have a lot more control.
Sigh. Yes, agreed – insufferable. Which got me thinking about Dr. Fell types and why, but to qualify as a Dr. Fell, it can’t be just actions or views, it needs to be hard to pinpoint.
For example, with De Niro, for me, it was his anti Trump things, with Springsteen, it’s the gender neutral toilets. But why do I dislike Richard Dreyfus, also the female TV actress with that surname, also Dustin Hoffman? Any method actors?
Turn it the other way – which would we go out of our way to watch? Leslie Nielson? Joan Hickson? Edward Hardwicke?
Maybe we have someone tabbed a certain way but when they climb out of that box, we don’t like it? Could that be it?
