Hollywood legend Lauren Bacall isn't a fan of present day celebs, and blames them for ruining the industry.
The 82-year old Golden Globe and Tony award winning actress insisted that though she still loves and respects the movie business bits, she can't stand the red carpet, where celebs are asked 'stupid' questions.
"I love my profession. I have tremendous respect for it. What I don't have respect for is the red carpet and the celebrity scene. It's become a zoo," Contactmusic quoted her, as saying. "It's so stupid. "They ask you stupid questions: 'What are you wearing?' Oh, Christ almighty!" she added.
And she certainly knows what she's talking about, for in September 2006, Bacall was awarded the first Katharine Hepburn Medal, which recognizes "women whose lives, work and contributions embody the intelligence, drive and independence of the four-time-Oscar-winning actress."
She will now be seen on the big screen in the 'The Walker' to be released later this year.
