Monkey Makes Him Mad

An amusing confrontation in 2003: Burt Reynolds lost his temper at a wisecracking monkey puppet at the Atlanta film Festival and lunged at and choked the offending Phineas J Monkey. Reynolds was being honored at the event and the monkey (operated by Lucky Yates) was co-master of ceremonies. Burt was appalled by jokes the simian made about the intelligence of actors Brad Pitt and Keanu Reeves. “Some day Brat Pitt might want to make a movie in this town” the volatile actor declared, before he grabbed the puppet by the neck, grimaced and squeezed. He stopped short of ripping off the puppet’s head and got an apology – not from the monkey – from the festival organizers.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
