Gerard Depardieu - arguably, France's best and best-known actor - admitted recently that he drinks a wee bit.
"I can absorb 12, 13, 14 bottles" of wine "per day," he said. "But I’m never totally drunk.”
On the other hand, he's never totally sober. Or coherent. Or intelligible.
This is a guy who's had quintuple bypass surgery too.
And he's had some interesting brushes with infamy. Here he is last year on The Graham Norton Show on BBC, talking about making an unauthorized pit stop on a commercial airliner. If nothing else, he found a use for his empties...
Looks like those knocks on the noggin on the playing field haven't hurt Peyton Manning any.
In an interview with Sports Illustrated very recently, he pretty much admitted that he bought up a bunch of Papa John's pizza shops - 21 of them, to be precise - in Colorado just before the state legalized marijuana to profit on the sale of the weed.
TMZ reported last year that sales in those Peyton pizza palaces were bringing in some big bucks since legalization. One shop's sales increased a whopping 25 percent.
In the interview, Peyton talked about his business plan: "There’s some different laws out here in Colorado," he said. "Pizza business is pretty good out here, believe it or not, due to some recent law changes. So when you come to a different place, you’ve kind of got to learn everything that comes with it."
Wait, that's another franchise he should have bought up...
Mayim Bialik, who portrayed Blossom in her younger days and now plays Amy, Sheldon’s “friend that’s a girl but not a girlfriend” on The Big Bang Theory is not afraid of speaking her mind.
Earlie this week, she slammed Ariana Grande for a billboard that was too sexual.
Now she’s telling everyone why she doesn’t like Disney’s Frozen.
The plot, in her mind, is “about the identification of a woman based on her desire and search to meet a man.”
It teaches girls “not to trust those nasty scheming conniving men.”
The animation of the female characters is out of sync with reality, featuring “tiny waists, ample busts, and huge heads. They look like dolls. They don’t look like the same species as the male characters even!”
Don’t hold back, Mayim. Tell us what you really think!
Ben Affleck - aka, the newest Batman - fessed up to some past sins in a new interview with Details magazine.
For instance, he got caught counting cards in a Las Vegas casino. Not so bad that he got tossed out, but enough so they diverted him from the blackjack table.
"I knew with blackjack that there's a way you can improve your odds," Ben said. "And so I started trying to learn. And then I just got to a point in my life where I'm like, 'If I'm going to do something, I'm going to try and do it really well.'"
So it's not really cheating if you're just trying hard to do well.
Ben also admits that while he was prepping for and shooting Gone Girl, he spent a good deal of time working on being puffy and hungover, because that's how his character was described in the book upon which the movie was based.
His director was very impressed. "It was six months of real dedication to being hungover. It was extremely method."
Not really an excuse when you get pulled over by the cops though, huh? "No, really, officer, I'm not drunk or hungover. I'm method-acting!"
