The day before, 67-year-old Whoopi Goldberg took part in another discussion on the talk show The View, where she admitted that she had included a clause in her will prohibiting the filming of unapproved biographical projects about her life. To the suggestion of the co-host that after the death of the actress in Hollywood there will certainly be filmmakers who want to tell her story in their own way, Whoopi replied:
Actually it is not. They won’t make films because my will clearly says, “If you don’t consult my family, then just try.”
A very thoughtful move on the part of Goldberg, especially after the release of Andrew Dominik’s film “Blonde” about Marilyn Monroe, literally crushed by both film critics and the public. By the way, the entertaining daytime show The View, where a team of female hosts discuss secular and political news, has been hosted by the actress since 1997.
Whoopi Goldberg — a true veteran of Hollywood. The comedian, voice actress, writer and TV presenter is just one of the few celebrities who have won 4 major American theater and film awards at once: Oscar, Emmy, Tony and Golden Globe. Among the bright projects of Goldberg — films “Ghost” (1990), “Act Sister” (1992), “Interrupted Life” (1999) and many others.
