Anonymous finds support from Australian Director of the movie V for Vendetta James McTeigue for use of the popular Guy Fawkes mask in the agitation against web censorship as expressed in an online video uploaded on the anonymous blog.


The Guy Fawkes mask that has become synonymous with Anonymous, has attracted a lot of attention. It is similar to the one used by the protagonist lead actor Hugo Weaving in the movie V for Vendetta fighting against government and administrative excess.

The support base for the hacker group Anonymous seems to be expanding with popular celebrities from Hollywood hailing the cause of censorship that Anonymous wishes to address. Not so long ago, a video had popular actor Will Smith who played the lead in Men in Black a sci-fi thriller, explaining why he thought the effort put forth by Anonymous could serve its purpose.
