    Terry Gilliam: I’m ‘Tired’ of White Men Being ‘Blamed for Everything That is Wrong’ in the World

    Terry Gilliam’s mind is on the MeToo movement, his self-identification as a “melanin-light male”… and says he has had enough of white males “being blamed for everything that is wrong with the world.”“We’re living in a time where there’s always somebody responsible for your failures, and I don’t like this,” Gilliam said of the MeToo movement in a Saturday interview with The Independent. “I want people to take responsibility and not just constantly point a finger at somebody else, saying, ‘You’ve ruined my life.'”The director went on to suggest that Harvey Weinstein’s accusers were to blame for the “choices” they made.Also Read: Terry Gilliam Lets Loose on 'Don Quixote,' Trump, Harvey Weinstein, Marvel and More“There are many victims in Harvey’s life,” Gilliam said, “and I feel sympathy for them, but then, Hollywood is full of very ambitious people who are adults and they make choices. We all make choices, and I could tell you who did make the choice and who didn’t. I hate Harvey. I had to work with him and I know the abuse.”He continued: “I can tell you about a very well-known actress coming up to me and saying, ‘What do I have to do to get in your film, Terry?’ I don’t understand why people behave as if this hasn’t been going on as long as there’ve been powerful people. I understand that men have had more power longer, but I’m tired, as a white male, of being blamed for everything that is wrong with the world. I didn’t do it!”During the 2018 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, the former Monty Python member said he tells “the world now I’m a black lesbian” in response to calls to diversify the field of comedy.Also Read: Terry Gilliam Trashes 'Black Panther': 'It's Utter Bulls--'“I don’t like the term black or white. I’m now referring to myself as a melanin-light male. I can’t stand the simplistic, tribalistic behaviour that we’re going through at the moment,” he told The Independent, referring to his older comments.“I’m talking about being a man accused of all the wrong in the world because I’m white-skinned. So I better not be a man. I better not be white. OK, since I don’t find men sexually attractive, I’ve got to be a lesbian. What else can I be? I like girls. These are just logical steps.”Gilliam’s latest film, “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote,” will roll out in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Austin and other top markets starting April 19. The film will also be released on all major VOD platforms on the 19th, as well, and will continue to expand theatrically throughout the spring and beyond.Read original story Terry Gilliam: I’m ‘Tired’ of White Men Being ‘Blamed for Everything That is Wrong’ in the World At TheWrap

    Here are the nine countries that have nuclear weapons

    There are currently nine countries in the world with nuclear weapons, including the UK, China, France, the United States and Russia.These five nations are officially recognised as possessing nuclear arms by the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT) - with the US and Russia holding the vast majority between them.But there are also four other countries that have the devastating weapons but hold them illegally. These are India, Pakistan, Israel and North Korea.The first nuclear weapons were developed by the US during World War Two as part of the Manhattan Project in reaction to the Nazi threat in Germany.America received cooperation from the UK and Canada.The latest nation to build nuclear weapons is North Korea, which carried out its first nuclear test in 2006.It has since threatened nuclear action against the US and South Korea, and has broken international law with its testing of powerful nuclear weapons.There were thought to be 13,865 nuclear warheads in 2019, down from 14,465 in 2018.The statistics used in this piece come from the 2019 report from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.The institute notes that ‘deployed warheads’ are those placed on missiles or located on bases with operational forces.Other warheads relate to those which have been stored or reserve warheads and retired warheads awaiting dismantlement.  All estimates are approximate and figures for North Korea are uncertain and therefore not included in total figures.
