Stanley by Kubrick her daughter is spearheading an effort to raise funds for ill actress Shelley Duvall, who starred in her father’s iconic film The brilliant.
Viviane Kubrick began fundraising for Duvall on Friday after it was announced the 67-year-old, who now lives in Texas, will appear in a Friday episode Dr Phil.
“I just think she deserves a lot more respect”, Kubrick Recount Hollywood journalist. “I’m just trying to collect as much money as possible.”
Kubrick, who said she did not know if Duvall was receiving government benefits, said THR she would seek professional financial advice first before distributing the funds to Duvall in order to protect any current benefits on which she might depend. A simple trust fund can be a good solution, she added.
“I think more and more people are now realizing how brutal the Hollywood system is and how people aren’t really taken care of even though the studio system has benefited greatly from their talent. ” Kubrick Recount THR. “And I know a lot of them are making a lot of money, but like any artist, money isn’t something that keeps coming in. And if you don’t have a business savvy, you might not have kept the money. “
Kubrick also noted that she hopes to secure health insurance from Duvall through the Screen Actors Guild, if possible.
Duvall, who has been out of the public eye for over a decade, appears to be suffering from mental health issues. For example, she told show host Phil McGraw that she believed her Popeye co-star, the late Robin Williams, is still alive, just a shapeshifter.
Duvall was also concerned that the doctors she might see at McGraw’s request would try to kill her.
Thusday, Kubrick, who hasn’t seen Duvall since his father finished production on The brilliant, lambasted McGraw for, in his opinion, exploiting the former actress and called for a boycott of the episode. On Friday she threw a GoFundMe page for Duvall.
“[My father] was absolutely delighted with her performance, I know that ”, Kubrick laments Duvall. “He said she was a fantastic Wendy Torrance, and she was. She was beautifully vulnerable and mad and someone you might believe would stick with a Jack Torrance character.
Until there, by Kubrick campaign for Duvall raised over $ 4,000.
And Kubrick wasn’t the only one disgusted with McGraw’s segment.
