Public Theater's 'Julius Caesar' Gets Star Support After Delta & Bank of America Pull Sponsorship!

Cobie Smulders and her hubby Taran Killam stepped out to show their support for The Public Theater’s Shakespeare in the Park production of the play Julius Caesar held at Delacorte Theater on Monday (June 12) in New York City.

It was recently announced that Delta and Bank of America have both pulled their sponsorship money from the classic play, which has been re-imagined in this new contemporary staging with Caesar being a character who resembles current President Donald Trump.

Andrew Rannells, Amber Tamblyn, Ben Foster, Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria Baldwin, Ari Graynor and Corey Stoll also were in attendance.

Before the play, The Public Theater’s artistic direct Oskar Eustis took to the stage to address the controversy: “The Public’s mission is to say that the culture belongs to everybody, needs to belong to everybody,” Eustis said. “To say that art has something to say about the great civic issues of our time, and to say that like drama, democracy depends on the conflict of different points of view. Nobody owns the truth—we all own the culture.”

Andrew Rannells Defends Lena Dunham Against Critics: 'It Feels So Unjustified'

Andrew Rannells starred with Lena Dunham on Girls for several years, and he’s been very outspoken about her critics.

“We have open conversations about all of that — look, she is a real groundbreaking creative talent,” the 38-year-old actor told People. “And that’s always going to be very divisive, people are going to have opinions about it. But it always surprises me the fervor with which people come at her sometimes. It feels so unjustified.”

Andrew previously told Andy Cohen about Lena, “If I’m going to be honest, I’m mostly confused by other women who criticize her physical appearance. I get very defensive about that on her behalf. She has such grace and such a great sense of humor about all of that, that she sort of lets it all roll [off her back], but I get defensive about it. Like, how can you possibly be critical of that?!”

Just this weekend, Lena had to fire back at critics who claimed she had “20 slimdown diet” tricks – Lena made her own, very eye-opening list in response.
