Amoeba Music asks Ben, What’s in your Bag?

Ben Stiller recently stopped by famed LA music and movie retailer Amoeba Music to pick up some DVDs for his family, and graciously opened his shopping basket for all to see, as part of a video series, “What’s In My Bag?”

According to Rachael who conducted the interview,

Ben talks about the first movie he remembers seeing as a child, buying movies for his kids, and a bunch of other stuff. I hope you enjoy it!

Thanks for the head’s up, Rachael, and for the awesome interview!

  1. First I would like to say that I very much enjoyed your comedy and your movies till one day when I was watching comedy central with my children. There was a comment made by you to the effect that the USA doesnt make anything anymore except for porno and Autistic children. I am the parent of an Autistic child and was SHOCKED to hear you make a comment like that. It may have been made for comedic reasons, but I along with my other children were completely offended by it. My son (who by the way, is extremely intelligent, probably more so than you), has more sence then to make a comment like that. He is not a burden to society. He is a very functional, sweet, kind, loving person who has feelings just like we all do. We don’t consider him Autistic, he is unique, as we all are. I think what is wrong with the United States is that we have become intollerent of anyone who doesn’t fit the “perfect image” whatever that may be. No one is “perfect” we are all different. I don’t know if you have any children but if you do I pray that they are “perfect” and that their children are also “perfect” so that you never have to encounter the discrimination that my son lives with every day of his life. Maybe the people of the United States need to become more informed and educated on Autism and therefore they wouldn’t make ignorant comments like that. By the way ignorant means uninformed/ uneducated. It amazes me how celebrities, like yourself, can feel so much for children who are suffering from some sort of a disease, but make fun of or comments about a child with Autism. What right do you have to say something like that. The only difference between my son and other children is that he learns in a different manner and a different pace. Autism is a neurological disorder. No different than any other child suffering from diabetes or cancer. It is all horrible and NO CHILD should ever have to be afflicted with any type of a life long disability. Maybe THAT is what you should have said. Here is something for you to think about as well, Albert Einstien was believed to have suffered from Aspbergers Syndrome (which is a form of Autism). There are also alot of men and women who suffer from some form of Autism who are very functional, and become great contributers to society. They have grown to become Authors, Lecturers, and so on. Take some time to search things before you decide to make comments on things that you are not informed on. You were once one of my favorite comedians to watch but I will no longer contribute to your wealth when you can so non-chalauntly make a very cold and calus remark like that about children with Autism!
