As a foreigner, I never called them weird But it's somewhat understandable. Every movie industry has its cultural norms that they rely on, so it might seem weird for some.
Yes, that is understandable. Still it is fair to accept, that the own culture isn't the norm.
Anyways, as a european I am technical a foreigner to Hollywood myself, but I feel in a way that Hollywood is the cultural norm for europe. That is even weirder!
