Why you should never ask an Actor
TIME Magazine quotes Forest Whitaker, who plays Idi Aman in upcoming movie "The Last King of Scotland":
"Most people think of (Amin) as a Monster," says the actor. "But he was funny, charming, passionate and flamboyant."I'm sure the hundreds of thousands of people who were tortured and killed under his tenure found him really funny. Not to mention the underlings of his predecessor who he reportedly cannibalized - they must have adored Amin for his charming personality and passion.
