James Lipton Has Acting Tips For Mitt Romney: “How To Be Human”
Maybe Mitt Romney needs some lessons to play a human being.
Look, humor is based on shared perception,” Lipton began. “What do you say when you hear a joke? I get it. I understand it. So there has to be shared perception. There’s very little sharing going on. He’s too busy working. He’s working the crowd and I remember once, a director said to an actor on the stage and the actor was working hard and director said, hey, relax, you got the job. And now that he’s almost got the nomination sealed, signed and delivered, I would advise him: Relax.”
“And you don’t like his wardrobe,” Brooke Baldwin continued.
“Well, it’s a mash up. It’s bowling alley and country club,” Lipton quipped.
“His blue jeans are carefully creased. On top is a jacket that cost him a fortune. It doesn’t match. It isn’t just that it’s not Mitt Romney, it’s not anybody,” he said. “And he’s clearly been instructed and told to give a performance which he’s doing. And leaving his politics aside whether one loves him or does not, that’s not working. It’s like for me watching a bad acting performance is like a fingernail on a black board.”
