JEREMY PIVEN IS OK WITH LAKERS FANS, MEL GIBSON ISN'T
Lakers fans love to “rate” the celebrities when their images appear on the Jumbotron. At last week’s game they made their preferences quite clear. Whenever stars’ close-ups appear on the Jumbotron screen, the fans respond with cheers or whatever. Last week when Andy Garcia’s face appeared, there was applause. When Ellen Pompeo popped up onscreen, there was no reaction at all. Jim Belushi got some claps. As soon as Jeremy Piven’s face flashed onscreen, the audience ROARED with approval! But when Mel Gibson had his closeup – the crowd BOOED. And of course he stuck out his tongue in response.
