RIP TORN THOUGHT THE BANK WAS HIS HOUSE

Now it makes some sense. A highly inebriated (twice the legal limit) Rip Torn, 78, was found wandering around inside a Connecticut bank with a loaded gun in his pocket and his fly unzipped. Officers who came in response to the bank alarm found shoes and a hat by the back door, and broken glass next to the door. Torn didn’t understand why troopers showed up to arrest him and put him in handcuffs and kept asking WHY they were taking him away. Here’s the deal: The “Men in Black” star had been drinking at a bar near his home (he walks, since his DUI) and he was so wasted when he left that he mistook the bank for his house. The bank DOES look like a home – it’s in a two story colonial house with an attic. Torn took off his hat and boots at the back door and when his key wouldn’t work, he broke the glass to get in. When troopers arrived he still thought he was at home! He was charged with trespassing, burglary, and firearms counts, after spending the weekend in jail. Last we heard he’s off to rehab.

    This is so sad, yet hilarious. I hope the late night stand-up guys and SNL do a skit on this. Sorry, but I’m rotflmao.

    If he got this out of his mind drunk, then this is a sad situation, as he must be a full blown alcoholic.

    If you can picture him really thinking it was his house and taking off his boots and hat, then it is really funny.

    FUNNY WON OUT – BY A LANDSLIDE.

    What a sad, pitiful way to wind up at that age and after a successful, long, acting career. To go out known as a huge joke and a raging drunk! Classic!

    It does look like a house. Do you have a picture of his house and the bank to make a valid point. If so he won’t sound crazy after all.

    I don’t buy it. There is recent footage of him being arrested drunk on some TruTV show; and he was all arrogance, “You can’t arrest me! You can’t make it stick!” And they couldn’t — he was clearly inebriated well past the limit so he must have friends in high places. I would feel sorry for him, but unlike many substance abusers, this guy is just a self-entitled jerk.

    He could had took a taxi home instead..It is not like he can’t afford it or something? He must be under alot of stress and worried about work not coming his way.

    He has to be depressed over something or frustrated about something and…I really hope that he gets the help he needs and…And address the issues at hand… But it has to be really hard getting old in Holly wood… Sooner or later the phone stop ringing and your over the Hill and no one is calling you for work and taxes takes it tolls and pressure is applied to this man.

    I like his movies in the pass and always looked at him as bringing something to the table as far as creative thoughts and feelings. If he is not working it is a waste of Talent that is incredible!

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?
