Tim Robbins remains his own man

Tim Robbins was somewhere in red-state country last year shooting the film "The Lucky Ones" when a serviceman approached him in a bar. "One would think it wouldn't be safe for me to be in situations in areas like that," said the actor and political activist who still burns over the names he was called -- "traitor," "Saddam lover," "terrorist supporter"-- after he made some antiwar remarks back in 2003.

But experience told him that the soldier, an Iraq veteran, would probably just want to talk. And indeed, what he wanted to say was just how tired he was of people making him into a hero and always thanking him for his service.
