RIP VADER: Bob Anderson, the Olympic fencer who played Darth Vader, has died. (Note: Anderson was simply Vader's lightsaber-wielding stunt double, but still cool.)

MARRIED, KNOW IT: Entertaining activist Sean Chapin reworks "LMFAO" track "Sexy and I Know It."

UPSIDE DOWN: New trailer for "romantic thriller" starring Kirsten Dunst and Jim Sturgess. Visually arresting and disorienting. (WB took down the English-language version, so have replaced with the French.)

EXCESSIVE OR ENLIGHTENING?: Ron Paul-supporting PAC releases video starring African American patient who tells a tale of Dr. Paul's compassion amidst racism.

Video: Director Lars von Trier Banned from Cannes After Remarks About Sympathizing with Hitler

Vontrier

Director Lars von Trier has been banned by Cannes following remarks he made yesterday at a press conference for his film Melancholia that visibly stunned his star Kristen Dunst and sent shock waves through the festival.

Said Von TrierLarsvontrier

"I really wanted to be a Jew and then I found out that I was really a Nazi because my family was German....Which also gave me some pleasure...What can I say? I understand Hitler...I think I understand the man, he’s not what you would call a good guy. But I understand much about him. And I sympathize with him a little bit. I’m not for the Second World War. I'm not against Jews. I’m very much for Jews. No not too much, because the Israelis, a pain in the ass...Okay, I'm a Nazi."

Von Trier apologized shortly after the press conference: “If I have hurt someone this morning by the words I said at the press conference, I sincerely apologize. I am not antisemitic or racially prejudiced in any way, nor am I a nazi.”

The AP reports:

A statement from Cannes organizers Thursday said von Trier now is "persona non grata" at Cannes for his comments a day earlier. It is an unprecedented move by the festival that bestowed its highest honor on the director's film "Dancer in the Dark" back in 2000.

The statement did not specify whether that meant von Trier's current Cannes film, "Melancholia," has been booted from Cannes and was no longer eligible for prizes.

Kirsten Dunst Worried About Reception for Marie Antoinette

Dunst

The movie was booed by an audience in Cannes, but Dunst thinks she has an ace up her sleeve:

"At least it'll be big with gay fans. I'm definitely in with the gays."

In with the gays? Really? From what I've heard, if she wanted in with the gays, she should have kept her grubby hands off Jake Gyllenhaal.
