A number of prominent film actors and directors have come together and signed a statement in support of beleagured President Bill Clinton. The statement was organised (somewhat ironically) by Jack Lang, the chairman of the French parliament's foreign affairs committee. According to today's Guardian, stars such as Anthony Hopkins, Gerard D ardieu and Emma Thompson, along with directors Robert Altman, John Boorman, David Puttnam and Wim Wenders put their names to the statement which says that the "arbitrary and unfair" procedures of special prosecutor Kenneth Starr, "must not have the upper hand. Victory... over this prosecutor will be for those across the world who support the principles of freedom. Oppression begins whenever a power... intrudes into an individual's private space and personal affairs." A number of musicians have also signed. Maybe they should do a benefit gig - they could call it Sex Aid.
