Kathryn Stockett’s cameo in “The Help”

I just came across this photo of Kathryn Stockett in a beehived cameo in "The Help." I think this is the scene where the ladies are having a Junior League meeting. I missed it when I went to see the movie. Guess I need to go again! Have y'all seen it yet?

I saw it last nite, and I thought it was a GREAT movie, however my bff thought it sucked. She said she liked the book better. I enjoyed both of them. Going to see it again this weekend.

I am boycotting this movie and I am urging my friends to boycott…The comments made by one of the actresses about the state of Mississippi were downright ignorant…I was born in Ms., and these statements are grossly incorrect….
1. Mississippi people fry everything, including koolaid…(The fried koolaid was started in California)
2. There is nothing to do but go to Wal-Mart for fun….{The casinos are there, which many out of state people flock to}
Several other statements were made…She is very ignorant, and I wouldnt watch the movie at gunpoint.even if they paid ME….

Pat,
for goodness sakes it’s just a movie! And do you think that by telling people what to see or not see on their spare time is going to matter, wake up! people don’t live by “your” word alone, they have their own mind, I can’t believe you have chosen to b!+ch and moan about a statement in a movie, small minded…the US has bigger problems to solve than to boycott a MOVIE! The good state of Mississippi has the lowest literacy rate in america and you want us to listen to you and boycott a movie. Wow, some people! Any way Pat…too late, the movie is already a success! Maybe you can boycott the school system in Mississippi!

Hey Really,
I don’t think that the stick up Pats butt is the problem, the marbles are running rampant, the elevator is still at the bottom floor, the screws are loose and the lights are definatly out. Boycott our government system not a “movie”!

Can’t wait to see it! I am going this weekend with family, who loved the book, as I did. As for Mississippi, I met a lot of nice people when I visited there, but the food was pretty awful everywhere we went, so I can understand why more cosmopolitan people would not be so happy there. (We also found the casinos very depressing). I think there will be a huge turnout to see “The Help,” because it is such an important story, a story based on a truth that some wish you would ignore.

Saw the movie last night and loved it! I enjoyed the book and movie equally as both showcased important highlights and touching moments. I’m going back again this weekend to see it with my sister.

Some people will seriously find any reason to justify boycotting anything. :( I can’t wait to see the movie.

I went to see the movie and totally enjoyed it. Although the topic is a sad one, the movie was great. I also heard the actress who plays Skeeter’s mother on The Talk the other day putting down Mississippi, which bothered me ,so I understand Pat’s feeling.
I am not going to see Change up because I did not appreciate statements made by Jason or Ryan concenring Atlanta. I am not sure why people from Hollywood think that it is right to put a place down when you are filming there. Personally, I am glad I am from the South .
Oh and for those who are not from Atlanta, most people from here can not stand to here people refer to the city as ATL.

In the end, I recommend THE HELP and have done so, will be seeing it again because I know I missed some parts due to babies crying, people walking.

Haven’t seen the movie yet ..but can’t wait…read the book. Was a suggestion made by a friend. Initially the topic didn’t sound very interesting – but it turned out to be a great read!

I saw the movie yesterday and it was one of the best movies I have seen in a long time, I loved the book also. I will go see it again, well worth it.

I saw the movie last night, I really liked it. I totally missed the cameo of Kathryn also! I did think the movie left out alot of the book but that is pretty normal due to time constraints. I definately recommend reading the book first, it goes much deeper into the racial divide of that time and explains the character relationships much better.

Folks, the sun does not rise and set over Mississippi. It is a movie based on a book based on a sliver of life in a time and place. Go see it yourself and then you can form an opinion.

Read the book and when I saw the movie was going to be released on August 10, I didn’t think it would get here soon enough. Loved the book, loved the movie. Usually you need to read the book before seeing the movie, but they seemed to convey the story well enough that a person who hasn’t read the book wouldn’t be confused. Now for some strange reason, I am having a craving for a good chocolate pie.

EE you are as silly as Pat. I read those comments and they were all made tongue-in-cheek.

EE as far as I can tell Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds have been very lighthearted and comical in their remarks. Reynolds did say “Atlanta was trying to kill me” but it was in reference to a number of personal woes he dealt with while he happened to be in town.

That said from the reviews I have seen I would not recommend “The Change-Up” unless you like a lot of gross toilet humor. I do sort of want to see Atlanta on the big screen though.

Saw the movie today – loved it. Read the book – loved it! I’ve never heard of Kathryn Stockett. I’m guessing she is from Atlanta. Learn something new everyday!! To Pat Thomas – really??!?!?!
If I decided to boycott every movie or show that had something I didn’t agree with, I would be missing out on a lot of good entertainment.

Pat,
The next time you see the words “add your comment”, PLEASE DON’T!!! you have way to much time on your hands when you have to say let’s boycott this “movie”. Get a life, Get a man, Get a clue even! If you want to control what people watch, go to North Korea

Is everyone calm now?? Okay…The word “boycott” is certainly a STRONG word, I see… I meant it to say I am not going to see the movie….I will NOT be organizing a protest outside the theatre nor will I be going on TV to speak and write a book about it….I was just displeased with the comments made by the actress….I apologize for causing such anger….lol Go see the movie, people……To “The Help in the Atl”…..I have an opinion just like you, thank u very much….

So you want to boycott a movie that speaks truth about a time and place… it is a part of our history as a people in America. Find something better to do with your time. I am so glad that I do not have a friend like you that would even think of encouraging me not to go see this movie for myself. I want all of my friends to see this movie. You have just proven the point of the literacy problems in Mississippi, by making a mountain out of a mole hill. I’m going to see this movie tonight, and I totally agree with “The Help in the ATL”, RuSerious, and Really!

TO “Some People Never Change”….Did you take time to read my second statement? I was not talking about the MOVIE.. My argument was about the comments that Viola Davis said on the show “106 and Park” about the state of Mississippi….I know about the things that went on during that time because I LIVED THERE during that time….Read closely before you fly off the handle… Literacy problems are everywhere,not just in Mississippi……

I am surprised that we are not having demonstrations in ATL and convening reparations convocations to demand in outrage the immediate removal of this insulting homage from all theaters in the world..It would be, of course, because the ATL is just a bigger splash of the same hot mess. lousy schools, crime and violence every day for breakfast, and massive corruption. Ain’t nothin’ changed, exc the color of the people in charge.

Saw the movie today. SO GOOD! Took some heat on FB from my ACLU lawyer sis, who thinks people should boycott it as it was not directed nor written by a black woman, even though she is a white female lawyer representing mainly black clients in racial profiling driving and voting cases in her state. The audience laughed and cried, and was made up of many mixed races that we meld together here in Honolulu. GO SEE IT!

I understand how hearing your state’s name besmirched can be upsetting. I live in Tennessee. (Please insert your favorite hill billy joke here.) But the fact of the matter is, this issue DID exist, and it was particularly nasty in Mississippi. And in veiled forms, it still exists, in Mississippi and elsewhere.
As to the fact that it was not written by a black woman, I would posit that this isn’t a black issue, but rather a race issue. As white people, when we think of race issues, we think of “others”, not ourselves. Hey, guess what. We are not the default setting for race. And I think this movie/book was written not only to look at the lives of these black women and others like them, I think it was also written to look at how the complacency of white women contributed to that. If you have read the author’s prologue, you will realize that she is facing down demons of her own.
At the very least, this movie has people thinking and talking. And seriously, getting riled up because someone says something nasty about your state seems kind of pointless in that light.

To Pat Thomas…I am also from Mississippi and the statement that was made is pretty much spot on which is one of the reason why I moved away. There is not a lot of things to do if you have a thirst for knowledge…..Loosen up just a bit. If you actually watch the movie I believe you would like it because the location in which the story takes place could actually be from any southern town during that time period. The Help was an excellent book and though I had my doubts about the film, they did a really good job.
