'Goonies' Director Flaunts His Anti-Fur Stance

Richard Donner – the genius director behind such films as “Superman”, “Lethal Weapon”, and “Goonies” – is apparently also something of an animal rights activist and anti-gun supporter. In other words, every hardline conservative’s worst nightmare.

Anyways, this all came to light for me after watching a great new video over on Yahoo! about Jeff Cohen – who played “Chunk” in “Goonies” – and how he’s now a big-time entertainment lawyer. It’s kind of a touching story – and Donner, who has supported his career choice the whole way, wears an anti-fur button in the interview.

Apparently, he’s also fond of placing his views in movies. For instance, in “Lethal Weapon 3”, an 18-wheeler has an anti-fur advertisement on the side. There are also anti-fur stickers in the locker room and on a t-shirt worn by one of Murtaugh’s daughters. Likewise, in the movie “Conspiracy Theory”, the newsstand that Mel Gibson visits every morning has an anti-fur sticker on it.

Anyways, check out the video on Jeff Cohen below. For any “Goonies” fan like myself, it’s pretty awesome to see Chunk all grown up and doing well!
