Jessica Alba calls Bill O’Reilly an a-hole

declare yourself 190109

Jessica Alba isn’t one of my favorite celebrities, but I like her a hell of a lot more after she said exactly what she thinks about Bill O’Reilly. On Sunday night she was at the Declare Yourself ‘A New Birth of Citizenship’ Inauguration kick-off event, where some Fox News goons came up to her and started prattling on about republicans and Fox and former President Bush.

Alba was clearly trying to be polite when they asked her if she had any words for Bush, to which she replied “Goodbye!” with a huge grin on her face. But then they decided to push her even more and asked Alba if she had any words for Bill O’Reilly. And then she called him an a-hole, and all was right with the world.

Jessica Alba, attending one of the Inaugural shindigs, was the victim of one of those Fox News ambush crews that wanders events where liberals are numerous and tries to get them to say something dumb so Bill O’Reilly can make fun of them later. She told them exactly what she thinks of Bill O’Reilly.

Reporter: Bill O’Reilly says hi. You wanna give him a Factor Inauguration Shout Out?

Alba: No. He’s kind of — [Laughs] He’s kind of an a-hole.

As is their SOP, the crew badgered her to give examples. (Examples? You want examples? We gotcher examples right here, dude.) And she was smart enough not to take the bait:

Reporter: How so?

Alba: I don’t know how he does it. I guess he was just born that way, for some reason.

Reporter: Can you give me an example? Come on.

Alba: No, because that means admitting that I actually have watched Fox.

Of course, O’Reilly showed off this clip proudly and smugly, no doubt to show his audience how “nasty” those Hollywood liberals are. Not that any of them have ever been caught wishing publicly for a terrorist attack on San Francisco, but hey. Nasty is in the eye of the media-megaphone holder.

Good for her. O’Reilly, of course, showed the clip and tried to act all smug and superior about it, though it was unclear what he felt smug and superior about. An actress hates you… as do a lot of people… and you’re right and better than everyone else how? It definitely wasn’t one of O’Reilly’s better arguments. But kudos to Jessica for saying what she thought. And when you watch the video, she actually said it quite nicely, everything considered.

Thanks to TMZ for the story idea.

    Yes, to be fair to the Alba Demon, she was just being honest. O’Reilly is an a-hole. As is Olberman and Matthews. And yet I love the last two.

  2. Sauronsarmy says:

    Somebody get this woman a cabinet seat.

  3. sucks says:

    Funny, I would have just called the guy a “big blubbering vagina”.

  4. Annie says:

    You know, I seldom like the things that come out of this girl’s mouth.

    But I gotta say, that’s the smartest thing she’s ever said. 🙂

    Go Jessica!

  5. vdantev says:

    She was far too kind to Mr. Splotchy, Bill O’Liar.

  6. kate says:

    bill o’reilly can suck it hard.

  7. gee_gee says:

    You know, I’ve just now decided that I like her new bangs. Well played, Ms. Alba. Well played.

  8. Obvious says:

    Well Played Miss Alba indeed. I’ve always been on the fence about you and I am now proudly one of your champions, anyone who can nicely tell off O’Reilly so he’s not so sure what happened (he really didn’t understand why she said that) deserves kudos.

    My dad watches O’Reilly every night so I’m forced to sit through it occasionally and I think everything that comes out of his mouth is pretty stupid.. (P.S. let your guests talk moron. We know you like to hear yourself talk, but shut up once in awhile)

  9. Chris says:

    Since when is Bill O being an asshole news?

  10. Ed Ford says:

    You celebrity suck-ups are too dumb to live. You don’t even know that O’Reilly is a red-dog Democrat, who has been extremely deferential to that empty suit, Obama, far more that anyone should be. As for Alba, she should be seen and not heard…another empty-headed Hollywood idiot.

  11. Ter says:

    And might I add the “giving it verbally” to Bill O is just so brave, after all no one else or their mother is doing the very same thing. Much like no one uses the “hater” verbage so it is so brave to do so.

  12. Leandra says:

    Obama is no empty suit…George Bush on the other hand – that title would fit him perfectly. Alba was great for saying what most people think but didn’t say! Great!

  13. No luck Chuck says:

    If you really want to make O’Reilly mad, make him sit through a Jessica Alba movie!

    Take your pick, good Luck Chuck, The Eye, or The Love Guru were all total bombs.

    Watching Alba try to act is as bad as listening to Bill!

  14. Ed says:

    Poor Leandra…another mindless Obama follower. These hopelessly naive fools need a messiah, and either Barack or Jessica will do…or Clooney, Baldwin, Penn, Robbins, O’Donnell, Sarandon, etc. Any Hollywood phony will fill the void for these pathetic creatures.

  15. Shib Leth says:

    Holy shit, a left-wing Hollywood actress! How brave! How heroic! Nobel Prize time?

    And how DARE a news agency ask her for clarification on why she called someone an asshole? The nerve! They should simply look away politely and leave in the presence of such brilliance.

    Hell, she probably _doesn’t_ have a reason for calling him an asshole. People that get all their political information from Leno monologues and US Weekly aren’t the most articulate.

  16. CB Rawks says:

    Poor sour Ed. You keep it up, little camper. Not an ounce of hope or happiness shall enter your soul, you can block it. And if you close your eyes real tight you can ignore the way the world has already improved.

  17. Cha Cha says:

    I don’t care if you’re a Democrat or Republican, O’Reilly is obviously an asshole. Did you see him on his old tabloid show and how completely rude he was to everyone? He’s always been that way, politically or otherwise. Oh, and remember the sexual harrassment suit by a Fox executive he quietly brushed under the rug? The smoking gun has the documents of everything he said to her, and it was certainly not gentlemanly.

  18. Bob says:

    Of course O’Reilly is an a-hole. He’s been put on television BECAUSE he’s an a-hole. Intelligent and rational Conservatives are NEVER allowed to be seen on television. The media makes sure that only ridiculous blowhards like Rush, O’Reilly and Hannity get any limelight so that intellectual midgits like Jessica Alba can have someone to feel superior to.

  19. Lori says:

    I’m sure O’Reilly is heart broken because some silly little self-absorbed actress doesn’t like him. LOL

  20. Mandy says:

    Um, Ed, seeing as how this website is all “Hollywood phonies,” all the time, and even has the word “Celeb” right in the name, and you’ve posted more than once…well, that’s not really the behavior one might expect from a high-minded, indifferent person who accidentally stumbled across this site while searching for nude pics of Ann Coulter where her penis is photo-shopped out.

    Anyway, if I were Jessica, I’d have said something like, “Speaking of a-holes, how’s that vibrator working out for Bill?” Remember the phone sex thing a while back?

    BTW, anyone else think Jessica’s new hairstyle kinda looks like a wig?

  21. barneslr says:

    She’s an empty vessel. Pretty, but nothing inside.

  22. jessica alba 1#true and real fan says:

    No she is not.
    She made it perfectly saying exactly what she thinks.

    Well done jessi 🙂
    Alba just said what she thinks , and her opinion.
    Besides, is what most of people thinks!

    So grow up, and learn how to respect others opinions.

    Jessi! You are gorgeous, sexy, a wonderful actress,
    and u’ve done perfectly saying exactly what u think!
    Go a head!:)
    [She got personality]

  23. daisy424 says:

    Like this dumb ass can even turn on a TV.

  24. Ed says:

    I may have misjudged Jessica. After seeing the mindless drivel of Mandy and CB Rawks, Jess is starting to appear almost cerebral. But Barack the Messiah may yet endow them all with functioning brains. It doesn’t hurt to have the ‘audacity of hope’.

  25. CB Rawks says:

    Ed, I consider it a very good thing to be at opposite sides to you.
    There’s nothing smart about you, and in fact you’re nothing but pessimistic and unconstructive, and it’s obvious you hope Obama has a difficult time.
    It will be VERY difficult, but only because Bush was such a raging failure, and dug the USA (and the world) a huge hole to try to climb out of.

    *George and Barbara gave little Georgie the Presidency to play with, and he broke it.*

  26. Ed says:

    CB, sad to see how much of the Chris Matthews koolaid you have ingested. Tell us, do you get tingles up your leg when the Chosen One speaks…be careful, Chris outed himself with that one.

  27. Becky says:

    ENOUGH! I don’t give a rat’s ass(hole) what Jessica Alba thinks or says! I am sick of Hollywood and all of the self-important actors and actresses who think that because they famous I am supposed to believe and live on every word they utter. They talk a big talk about the importance of all opinions being expressed but let someone disagree with their beliefs and they are like a bunch of whiney two-year-olds! What hypocrisy! At least Bill says what he believes and if you don’t agree with him, that’s too bad! He’ll call you an idiot and then move on. You know what you get with him. The Jessica Alba’s smile and coo at anyone weird, because they think that means they are open-minded and accepting, but let someone with common sense challenge their idiocy and the smiling and cooing suddenly end. Oh well, I guess you can now begin referring to them as the, “Liberal Establishment.” Conservatives are becoming the new counter culture and beacons of freedom and free expression. I feel like I’m back in the sixties, but in reverse!

  28. Blake says:

    Ouch – Jessica you are much more attractive when you don’t express your naive uniformed political views. It is mindless people like you and the morons who let you think for them that will ultimately destroy our fragile democracy. With freedom comes responsibility, and we are forgetting that individual responsibility is what makes us collectively great. It saddens me to see so many of us fooled into thinking we can prosper by surrendering our existence to a bloated and inefficient government. Obama is nothing but a smooth talking con man from the most politically corrupt state in the union. You blind supporters are soon going to have a nasty case of buyers remorse. Please, please, please stop and think for one minute about the fact that governments cannot create prosperity, only motivated hard working citizens can. Bigger government will not and can not compensate for a failure of individuals to accept responsibility for their actions and for the well being of their fellow man. If 56% of a nations citizens support a socialist leader, can it still claim to be a democracy?

    Well was a Jessica fan up to this point, she isnt as cute as she used to be. She called OReilly a name, but she couldnt back it up, not one piece of factfinding evidence. These celeb bozos need to shuddup and act, it is getting to the point I dont even want to see a movie. And why they all are libs, well they couldnt work in hollywood if they werent, they would be blackballed. Show me a conservative actor that has a job.
