  • Typical Hypocritical Hollywood

    Elizabeth Berkley being outcast by Hollywood goes to show you how 2 faced and hypocritical Hollywood is.

    For what she did in showgirl and a lot of people don't realize is that it opened the door for shows like OZ, Movies Sincity.

    Meaning, People seeing a man's privates and a women's rack. It's the same hypocritical behavior that they give to openly gay actors and actress, yet it's been a safe haven for gay men and women long before it was openly accented by the public.

    I think it Hollywood itself and most of the public needs to grownup and remember that it's all acting.moreless
  • Talented if given the right vehicle!

    I think that Hollywood needs to forgive Elizabeth Berkley despite starring in one flop. I think she has picked up herself really well in tv shows. And if given the right vehicle, I think that she could breakout from the "Showgirls" flop as well as the "Saved by the Bell" thing that now has Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Mario Lopez into adult stars. I think she is a talented actress and if given the right vehicle, she could really breakout into the right role if given that chance. As she is talented and has lots of potential coming to her if Hollywood will give it that is.moreless
