No Booze For Matthew Fox For A Year


It's been a busy week for Matthew Fox. First, Dominic Monaghan called him a woman beater and stuck to his guns. Matthew has never responded to that statement. he had a friend respond, but Matthew has not said anything. Then, the female bus driver who said Matthew Fox repeatedly beat her while he was drunk dismissed her suit. Finally, Matthew pleaded no contest to his DUI charge so he won't face jail time but can't drive or have any booze for a year. Of course that is in Oregon so he will probably move to Mexico for a year and continue to drink heavily. Where is the rehab in all this? Hit a woman while drunk and then get a DUI suggests maybe he has a drinking problem. It might not be Christmas tree Kiefer Sutherland bad, but it seems as if he has one.

It's too bad he got off that island.

His problem is a lot worse than KS's. As far as I am aware, Keifer still manages to be very professional on set and doesn't go around assaulting women. If he's had a DUI in the past, he learned from it and I haven't heard of any more.

MF, it turns out is just a violent drunk, a douche bag, and while I've never been a super fan, I've always enjoyed his work. Now he disgusts me, and he has tainted on of my all time favorite shows. Willy Wonka needs to drop him & Chris Brown in the bad egg section in the factory.

I hadn't actually seen Kiefer take on the Christmas tree before, and now I'm sitting here laughing over the clip--there's just something about the way he made that leap that cracks me up. (OK, obviously being an alcoholic is not a good thing, but if you're going to be an idiot when you drink, better to tackle trees than to hit women, eh?)

Also, way to go Matthew Fox! Look in the mirror, look at your daughter, and imagine the type of men she will be dating the rest of her life. Well done. I hope his daughter has a lot of self esteem.

Lol, off the island. I hv read interviews with him in which he says pretty much, after Lost I'm done. And the way i live, my wife and i are titally good with it. So i think hes kind if saying, thus us who i am, i make no apologies. If there are children involved its a damn shame, and a waste of his life. Hope he rethinks his ways.

NOT PENNY'S BOAT

His violence towards women is what's really disturbing me. I loved Party of Five and Lost, and I want to believe he's a good egg, but the evidence is just piling up. For Dominic Monaghan to speak up, that's huge. Damn Matthew, get your shit together.

Fox is completely different than Kiefer who has a problem but readily takes responsibility for it, and remains entirely professional by moving his full jail sentence to when 24 was finished shooting so no cast and crew had to suffer. And as someone said, he's a jovial drunk and tackles Christmas trees instead people.

His situation reminds me of another actor I have a soft spot for. Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Both are abusive drunks, and I am rooting for them both to kick their addictions.

Monica said...

LOL on that Kiefer clip. Loved it.

FS said...

So the difference between Matthew Fox and Chris Brown is... photographs and charges filed? Whatever. Done with Matthew Fox.

DontRainOnMyPrada said...

It's a bad reflection on Kiefer to pair him w Fox. Why would Enty do that? Is it a hint?

ABlake said...

Again, Dominic was in the Love the Way You Lie video by Eminem and Rhi. The one with Megan Fox, beatings and killing. I don't want to hear it from him.
Fox is an idiot. Always has been.

ABlake said...

Kiefer is no saint. He just has better attorneys

Enty was interviewed about Fox, he was quoted here:

I watched that episode last night. I've seen the series before, but my boyfriend never has. I tested up...again. I loved Charlie.

Scott said...

If Matthew was only beating on Christmas trees, I'm not sure anyone would care.

Ugh, auto-correct. That was supposed to be teared up. I just noticed

Mother Campfire said...

I <3 that clip SO MUCH.

In Oregon, if you are on a DUII diversion you can't drink for a year. Period. If the court finds out your are drinking (like there are pictures of you in a foreign country at a party with a drink in your hand) your diversion gets revoked and you are sentenced to a DUII which includes mandatory jail time (minimum 2 days, which isn't much - but still, this is a first time we are talking about).

I'm a criminal defense attorney in Oregon. We have people revoked because when they are going through their DUII treatment, some take it really, really seriously and use it as an opportunity to get better. As an opportunity to get better, they admit if they've screwed up and had a drink. Then they get kicked out of diversion and get a conviction.

So the whole idea of getting better is really working here in Oregon.
