Do it affect you on whether you will spend money on his/her music/movie/TV show??
Just curious :rolleyes:

Depends, but yes it has.

No. One has nothing to do with the other.

+1 Same here.

Do my personal conducts dictate whether the celebrity wants me watching them?
I agree that it depends. But it certainly has.

Another vote for it depends. . . and yes I have boycotted in the past.

I boycotted Cruise for a while after he jumped the couch. But I recently watched Valkyrie and he was very good in it. I boycott for a while and then I stop caring.

I think it's silly to miss out on a good movie because of what some crazy celeb does in their free time. Mission: Impossible III was the best of the three, in my opinion, regardless of what ol' crazy-ass Tom Cruise was doing to Oprah's couch or that wacky fictional religion he believes in.

Yep. I liked Rosie O'Donnell until she tried to bust out Tom Selleck while on her show, about being an NRA member/pro gun rights advocate.
I wouldn't piss on her teeth if her mouth was on fire.

Absolutely! I want to be entertained, which does not mean paying for a ticket to hear their political views. I even have this problem with Ted Nugent, who for the most part I agree with his political views, but still don't want to be subjected to them during a concert.

Well, Rosie O'Donnell's problem was that after she went public about being a lesbian, her comedy was essentially about nothing but that. She let her sexuality consume her professional identity, and her comedy suffered for it. It wasn't the controversy that hurt her - she just stopped being funny. Not that she ever really was... but I digress.
Compare that to Ellen Degeneres who addressed her sexuality, then went on doing the same type of material she had always done, and she remains successful for it.
I look at acting like I do any other job: If you're doing the job to my satisfaction, I don't care what you do in your free time any more than I care what my dry cleaner does so long as my shirts are getting clean. Tom Cruise can jump on a couch, worship aliens, or publicly hump fire hydrants for all I care... 'cause I'm still gonna go see Knight & Day because it looks like a good movie.
