If I asked you to name the highest-grossing actor of all time, who would you pick? JOHNNY DEPP maybe? LEONARDO DICAPRIO? WILL FERRELL, even?
–Well, you’d be wrong, wrong and WRONG. Because the highest-grossing actor of all time is SAMUEL L. JACKSON.
–Jackson’s work over the course of his career has earned $7.42 BILLION, earning him a place in the “Guinness Book of World Records”.
–Of course, Jackson isn’t always the STAR of his movies, but that doesn’t matter. As long as he’s in them, it counts.
–So I guess that means that even small, early career appearances in movies like “Coming to America” and “Goodfellas”.
–Then of course there’s the higher-profile stuff like “Pulp Fiction”, the “Star Wars” prequels, the original “Jurassic Park”, “The Incredibles” and now, all those Marvel superhero movies like “Iron Man”, “Thor” and “Captain America”.
You know that whole Zen Buddhist thing RICHARD GERE has going on? Well, it’s NOT an act. This guy really LIVES it . . . to the point where he actually PRAYS FOR DEAD BUGS.
–That’s according to TOPHER GRACE . . . who recently filmed a movie with Gere called “The Double”.
–He says, quote, “We were at this dinner and . . . there are bugs all over the place and I’m [smacking them] and I look over [at Richard] and am like, ‘Oh, sorry.’
–”He’s friends with the Dalai Lama and stuff. He says, ‘Don’t worry, I’m saying a prayer for each [mosquito you kill].’
–”Then this mosquito landed and was pumping blood out of his cheek . . . It had been awhile and this mosquito is getting fat with blood. And he finally said, ‘There’s a mosquito on my cheek, huh?’
–”And he lifted it [and tossed it in the air] and said, ‘Enjoy the snack.’ It’s crazy. I was blown away by that kind of stillness.” That Pretty Woman did mess him up!! Kids never mess with hookers!
ALICE COOPER has been sober for 30 years . . . and he has said that he feels fortunate that he was able to recognize the evil of alcohol in time to cut himself off.
–And now, he’s saying that he believes alcohol and cigarettes are even more dangerous than illegal drugs.
–Alice tells “OK!” magazine, quote, “You know, looking at statistics, I think drugs should be legal and alcohol and cigarettes should be illegal. They kill more [people] than drugs do.”
(–If this is mainly about marijuana, then I’d agree. But if he’s talking about ALL illegal drugs, I’m not sure that I’m with him) By the way this doesn’t mean I endorse marijuana use….too much of that crap screws up you brain!! ever talk to a serious pot head? you know what I mean then…
This sounds like an old wives’ tale that parents use to keep their kids from eating cookies before bed . . . but science backs it up. Several studies have found that eating JUNK FOOD or SPICY FOOD before you go to bed makes you more likely to have NIGHTMARES. Those foods heat up your body, making your brain work . . . and when it’s that active, nightmares can happen.
The official coroner’s report says Amy Winehouse died of an alcohol overdose . . .
. . . Damn. I had “lupus” in the office pool. But then, I figured it was a long shot.
–Kevin Richardson will rejoin the Backstreet Boys for a December concert. Because hey, it’s not like their tour bus is going to drive itself.
–Dr. Conrad Murray was moved to tears during his trial when five of his patients praised him on the witness stand. Dr. Murray cried from the shock of learning that five of his patients were still alive.
–British scientists have created a super breed of broccoli that can drastically reduce cholesterol. AND, it tastes just like bacon. Nah, kidding. It tastes like broccoli. Back to your McMuffin.
–A British man is the world’s first patient to have a smartphone docking system built into his prosthetic arm. He’s the first guy who can literally tell people to “Talk to the hand!”
–Tony Romo says he and his wife are having a baby . . .
I hope this whole “having a baby in wedlock” thing won’t be a blemish on the NFL.
. . But unfortunately, Romo won’t be allowed to hold the kid till he proves he can go more than 15 minutes without fumbling.
And if your coming to the Wolf Metallica Extravaganza tonight at the District I’ll see you there! I’ll be the one in the Sad but True corner…Later Ballsy!
